I had two visits with Dr. Mortazavi and they were both very good. She explains everything thoroughly and in plain english.She always calls to check up after a filling or procedure. The front desk worker is also great and I didn't have any problems filing insurance. They are very upfront about the procedures needed and aren't pushy.

I went in to see her because I was having pain and thought I had cracked a tooth. Turned out onlyto be a filling that needed to be fixed. She thought I may need a root canal so sent me right away to a fantastic Dr. I have a great fear of dentists but they were so kind and professional, I made appts to get everything fixed! Highly recommend!

This was my first visit. I got a same day appointment and she was able to take me early. My visit was short because she had to send me to an Endodontist and an Oral Surgeon however I will go back to her for additional work.

My wife and I have both been treated by Dr. Mortazavi. She is very gentle when working on your teeth and patient when answering questions about treatment options. If you are looking for a caring dentist make an appointment with Dr. Mortazavi

Dr. Mortazavi is fantastic. I had a tooth extraction that end up a minor surgery, due to the tooth decayed to the root and its shape, in my first visit. It sound scary but she explained every steps she took andgently remove it. She even followed up and called me in person to ensure I was ok at the end of the day. This is first time in a very long time (about 10 yrs) I visited a dentist. I'm glad I found Dr. Mortazavi .My fear of dentist is overcome.

Excellent, it was my first visit and I was surprised as to how thorough Dr. Mortazavi was. She explained everything she was doing and the information came across as substantial. During the actual cleaning her bedside manner was great, she wouldconstantly ask if I was feeling any pain and let me know there were alternative tools to use if the pain was too strong. Lastly I mentioned i had a doctors appointment later that day and she made it a point to tell me my blood pressure was too high and that I should let my doctor know. All in all I felt like she actually cared, she came across as genuine, and I'm definitely heading back. All dental appointments should be like this.

I couldn't have found a better Dentist! She and her staff are are so heart warming and professional, they make me feel right at home.. I also noticed that she utilizes new trends and or procedures. which is a good thing.(goodbye to wooden teeth!") Her pricing is competitive, and tries to find the best solution when the cost is high.

Visiting the dentist office is never a fun thing to do, and finding a great dentist seems to be next to impossible(i'm sure their are a lot of great dentists out there) I was experiencing an awful tooth ache while atwork and a co worker suggested i pay Kathy Mortazavi,DDS a visit. I was told that she is "really good" at what she does.when i arrived and opened the door to her office, I was greeted by a warm smile from the receptionist named peggy. I filled out all the necessary forms. Then i met Kathy Mortazavi, DDS.She explained everything in complete detail as to what was going to happen.(Tooth extraction) She performed the extraction in perfect painless form, She is such a sweetheart of a dentist, always asking if i was in or felt any pain. even called later in the day to see, if i was doing OK?I am looking forward to the next visit.

As a first time patient, my visit could not have been better! I made the appointment online, which was so easy to do. Received a phone call from the front office and the new patient forms were mailed to me inadvance, which made it a breeze at the appointment time. Was greeted by the friendliest hygenist, who was very caring and gentle with the x-rays and dental cleaning. The best cleaning I have ever had! Dr. Mortazavi thoroughly examed all my teeth and discussed the options for needed dental work. One of the nicest dentists that I have met plus her conservative approach to dentistry was very refreshing, in this day and time. I will be happliy returning as a patient with Dr. Mortazavi's office with a smile! :)
