Very, very thorough. My daughter has a complex case...he really took the time to explain all the different options, as well as the pros and cons. Never felt rushed. He came highly recommended and I see why!! The office staff is just as wonderful!

It was a follow-up appointment. I had a couple of concerns that I'd thought of after my prior visit. Dr. Niknia gave me his full attention and answered by questions clearly, thoroughly and understandably. I walked out of there feeling much more confident and educated.

I'm very fearful of the dentist so the friendly atmosphere and the bay view really helped me keep calm. I had a couple fillings repaired and it was done very quickly with minimal to no pain. Both the dental assistant, Samanthaand Dr. Niknia were very quick and gentle, they also checked on me several times to ask if I was doing ok. My main concern was post-op sensitivity, which I experienced the first time I got fillings and there has been no sensitivity whatsoever. My jaw is a little sore from keeping my mouth open, which is to be expected and Dr. Niknia preemptively communicated this as well so I knew what to expect. I would highly recommend Dr. Niknia and I'll continue patronizing this office as well.

Best experience you could ever have at the Dentist. The location is amazing. Each room have double doors that open to a nice terrace overlooking the Harbor, so you get to see the water and enjoy the sail boats while youget your teeth cleaned. Combine that with great service form the staff and an amazing bedside manor with Dr. Nikni, you can't go wrong! Highly recommended!

I have always been terrified due to awful experiences, immediately I walked in with tears dripping from my face. Samantha who greeted me calmed my tears and settled my anxiety. Then I was sat in that dreadful dentist chair, again withthe tears... That is until Dr. Niknia walked in. Not only his words, but as I shook he placed a comforting hand on my shoulder. Instantly he calmed my nerves, I was given the option to take a break but to be honest with the good Doctor I didn't need one. When you lay in that dreaded chair with the light sitting above your face you feel no blinding light, but you may gaze though the grand windowing looking onto the most beautiful scenery. I won't write a novel but I absolutely could. In short, I am paying out of pocket to have the comfort of knowing that Dr.Niknia genuinely cares for my well being..

I love going to a doctor or dentist that sees me at my appointment time. I made the appointment because I had a cavity that needed to be filled. I was in and out of their office in about 35 minutes.The staff is great, super personable. I take my children to this dentist too, it is actually remarkable. I have never known a child to beg to go to the dentist. All of my children ask me every couple of weeks, "is it time to go to the dentist" They love it there, crazy I know.... I highly recommend Dr. Niknia to anyone looking for a great dentist.
