She tried telling me I had cavities that could be filled before even looking at my teeth and just reviewing the x-rays. What she pointed out, I couldn’t even see. I’ve never had a cavity in 34 years. I told herI would just keep an eye on it since it seemed so miniscule and my prior doc who was very good never saw it. The hygienist said it was still at a point where it might not go further and could even be reversed with better care. I think that’s a way better option but the doc seemed to run out the gate with the most expensive and unnecessary option. Also, tried to see if I would pay for more expensive X-rays despite my old doc sending them. Just not the best way to greet a new client. Hygienist was awesome and really nice, convenient facility.

Great clinic setting and friendly staff. Felt like the cleaning was a little rushed when I told the staff that I had to leave in 20 minutes because the appointment was running late.

The staff took care of me right away and was very thorough. I am used to being told that I have to re-schedule for a cleaning after my exam. Not the case here; they cleaned my teeth immediately after they tookX-rays and did the exam. I as VERY appreciative of that. I have a new dentist : )

The office was very clean and quiet. The staff were very professional and made me feel comfortable. The doctor did not pressure me into scheduling any future appointments for dental work and did not scare me into thinking I had anythingnot truly wrong with my teeth. The doctor gave me a discount on my estimate for future dental work. Very caring and kind.

After seeing all the positive reviews on ZocDoc for Dr. Karmacharya I had high expectations. Next time I don't think I'll trust the reviews as much because overall I had an unsatisfactory experience. I decided to try Dr. Karmacharya after purchasinga dental cleaning, exam, and x-ray package off of groupon. Firstly my appointment time was changed the day before (but that was OK because I was available at and agreed to the new time). However when I went in I still had to wait for quite some time- I had assumed that changing the time would mean I would be seen on time. I was eventually seen by the front secretary/dental hygienist who did my X-ray, she was polite. Then I was made to wait some more in the chair. There was no privacy between the patient areas. Despite the thin wall, I could clearly hear the conversation and procedure going on in the next area, and from what they were saying it didn't seem like I was going to be seen on time. During this waiting time I actually walked outside to see my baby and husband and they were surprised that I still hadn't been seen. When I finally got to see the dentist it was a rushed affair. In the middle of seeing me she called out to her secretary, who then came over, and then she told her to give the patient in the next area a 'discount' on her treatment. Her secretary asked her how much of a discount and she discussed this in front of me. Maybe that's OK for some people, but it just didn't seem professional to be having this conversation in front of me, another patient! She looked at my X-rays and told me how many cavities I had and where she thought I would need a root canal. I asked if she could email me a copy of the X rays, and I was told there would be an extra charge for that because it takes the secretary's time. I said that I thought I had already paid for the X rays (according to the groupon deal). She then agreed to printing them out for me instead. When I asked if I could take a picture of the X rays as well with my smartphone, she said to me "you can do whatever you want". Which, to me, wasn't very professional. Lastly, my cleaning was unsatisfactory at best, I actually felt my teeth with my tongue and could feel areas that still felt like they had build up. I asked her about that, and she then cleaned them. The dental hygienist then came back in to finish the job by flossing and polishing. Overall, I felt I was given up on. It was not a warm or professional experience, and I've had much better cleanings done elsewhere (I moved from California). The positives are: The front secretary/hygienist was polite, the office was brand new/clean w. seemingly equipment, they had a TV above your dental chair in case you wanted to watch while you wait, and a children's area to play in.

I went for exam and cleaning. Dr. Karma did a great job and I can really feel the difference. The clinic is clean and modern and Dr. Karma and staff are very friendly and caring. I know many people do notlike going to dentists. But I am sure any patient who visits her will always come back to this clinic. I could really see the difference in how Dr. Karma treats her patients vs. other dental clinics I have been to.
