I got an unexpected diagnosis during my appointment and Dr. Ardekani was extremely patient and thoughtful as he explained everything to me. More importantly, my appointment then became classified as out of my insurance plan and the receptionistwas extremely kind and calm as she explained my payment plan options to me. I am hoping the rest of my future appointments are filled with the same positive and professional attitudes.

Dr Ardekani and his staff were truly amazing. This was my first time visiting them and I felt like a regular patient from the time I stepped in. The office space is intimate yet very welcoming. Dr. Ardekani walked me throughmy x-rays, the procedure and his recommendations for what I should do post-visit. I would highly recommend paying them a visit.

Dr. Ardekani and his staff are exceptional. I’ve never had a better dental office experience. They are kind and efficient. The new patient intake process wasn’t stressful at all, and they took care of calling my insurance for X-rays and cleaningclaim reimbursements. They use the latest technology, unlike most offices. Dr. Ardekani has great bedside manner and does the cleaning himself, rather than a hygienist, and it was quick and not even the least bit uncomfortable! He even filled my first-ever cavity and I didn’t even need numbing. Aside from my general checkup, I also scheduled to see him because I was experiencing pain from my wisdom teeth. He and his staff worked get me in to see an oral surgeon within the following day of my appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Ardekani and his staff if you want quality care.

Love Dr. Ardekani and Millie who runs the front of house. I've gone 3x -- 2x cleaning, 1x fixing someone else's work. The doctor is kind, considerate, thoughtful, and efficient. They make billing easy. The office is beautiful and immaculatelyclean. I used to be seriously apprehensive and dread going to the dentist, but ever since I switched to Dr. Arekani, I look forward to going.

Dr. K and his staff are very professional. From the moment I entered the office I was greeted by Millie (she's a breath of fresh air) and the doctor was ready to see me within minutes. I have never been madeto wait to see Dr. K. because the appointments are spaced accordingly. The examination was seamless, as Dr. K. explained everything that he was doing; so there are no surprises and I felt comfortable and at ease. I have never had a bad experience in their office and after going to the same dentist for about 25 years I knew it was time for a change. I am so happy that I found DC Pearls Dental Boutique! The office is up-to-date and so is Dr. K; he takes classes to stay current on new technology and dental procedures. I have never had a bad experience in their office and will remain a patient for life.

It’s a small practice so he really takes the time to look at your teeth. He’s very to the point and I didn’t feel like he was trying to push anything unnecessary on me. Also noticed a cavity that hadn’t been noticed before!

The office is nice and friendly, but I have had better experiences at other dentists. I felt like I was constantly being sold expensive, unnecessary services - I promise I don’t need Invisalign after 6 years of braces. I didn’t even get a toothbrush at the end!

Without a doubt the best dentist I have ever seen and the last dentist I will ever see. He has surpassed all expectations of how pleasant and thorough a dental procedure can be. I haven't shut up about this dentist tofamily/friends since I went, which is a 180 degree change from my prior self who refused to even book an appointment. Glad I got lucky and chose to try Kourosh. 10/10

I was very happy to go to Dr. Ardekani. I'd hadn't been to the dentist in a while and was quite nervous. Dr. Ardekani was very re-assuring and the rest of the staff were all friendly and helpful. After the initialexam and a follow-up procedure, I feel a lot better about my dental health thanks to Dr. Ardekani. Dr. Ardekani was very caring and has some pretty thoughtful approaches to put his patients at ease. For instance, during a procedure I eventually had to have, Dr. Ardekani gave me an ipad with noise-canceling headphones and calm music. That actually went a long way to relax me and lessen the pain.

I've had a couple of dentists in the DC area (Smile/Washington Elite). Kourosh has left the best first impression - he's building his business and cares deeply about ensuring a positive experience. His assistants also seem to have their stufftogether, which can be a problem elsewhere. If you're not satisfied with your current dentist, definitely give him a try.

The office is beautifully designed, as well, and very high tech. I appreciated that Dr. Ardekanioffers a fluoride treatment for adults, which I usually don't come across at most dentists. I definitely recommend Georgetown Pearls, and will be using Dr. Ardekani as my regular dentist here in D.C.

Dr. Ardekani's beside manner was wonderful, he even gave me tips about medical school and continuing on my path of pre-med. The receptionist was more than helpful with her tips, as well, and both of them ensured that I was comfortablein my surroundings. Even offering me free coffee and tea. I had no wait time, except to fill out the necessary paperwork as it was my very first time there. The entire visit lasted for about an hour, as I had much I needed to get done. I will definitely be returning here.
