I've had VERY bad experiences at the dentist in the past. Dr Bouhairi was super thorough with everything he did, explaining to me every tool he used and what exactly he was doing. While I still don't necessarily consider the dentistfun, he definitely made it the best experience I've ever had at a dentist. My insurance covered very little, and Dr Bouhairi was able to set up payment plans with me to continue coming back to receive immediate and wonderful care. I've recommended Dr Bouhairi to everyone I know in that area. Thank you!

He is an excellent dentist. He treats patients by himself, so for cleanings it's not a dental hygienist doing the work but the doctor himself. He was very efficient and thorough. He found problems others hadn't noticed before during my firstcleaning, and took care of them the next day. The receptionist was very courteous as well. I absolutely give this dentist my recommendation.

i WAS SCARED BECAUSE I HADN'T BEEN TO A DENTIST SINCE 2012 AND SHOWED UP WITH BROKEN TEETH AND PARTIAL DENTURES THAT NO LONGER FIT. HE DIDN'T GIVE ME ANY GRIEF OVER THE NEGLECT. INSTEAD, HE ASSURED ME THAT IT COULDALL BE TAKEN CARE OF. HE SPOKE EASY AND WAS CALM. OFFICE IS IMMACULATE, EVERYTHING IS CLEAN. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Excellent. The doctor gave me all the alternatives for the treatment. No pressure to up sell. Truly an old school dentist who is honest and follows the copy's set by the insurance and does not add non authorized amount to inflate the copayment amount.

Wonderful dentist who cares about his patients and wants to be thorough. I was not an easy patient, I had to come in multiple times within a matter of a few months and he worked with my schedule and was verycaring to not cause a lot of discomfort. He listened to my concerns and tried to work around them as best as he could. I would recommend him to anyone in the area.

The Office Manager is very efficient in checking with insurance to be sure insurance will cover the treatments needed. Dr Bouhairi actually does the work instead of having an assistant do everything. I really enjoy going to the office and feel like they actually care about me!

Went in for a cleaning and later cavity filling and deep cleaning. Dr. Bouhairi is not very pushy and will give you his recommendation and leave the decision up to you as it should be. He was upfront with pricing, lookedup my insurance costs, and it did not change at all after getting my work done. I arrived on time both times, but still had to wait for my work to be done so make sure you are not on a tight schedule when going.

My visit was a rush appointment to put in my crowns because the temporaries would not stay in, and I was in pain. The staff was understanding and rushed the lab to finish. The doctor accommodated my schedule and fit mein to complete the work and resolve my issues. Dr. Bouhairi is a gentle dentist, skilled, professional, thorough in explaining the procedures that need to be done, and efficient in breaking the work into manageable appointments.
