Verified Patient Reviews
Doctor Lila was very kind and sweet. I would visit again-- however I felt Megan the hygienist was a bit rough and the cleaning hurt more than it should have. She didn't explain anything while the cleaning was happening and her flossing was very heavy.
Dr. Nikkhah is very nice, but I've been to doctors with much nicer equipment / tools and hygienists. She didn't even make me rinse my mouth when I got in, she just started working on my tooth. Her filling was good, but nothing special really. ALSO - according to ZocDoc she accept various types of insurance, which is false. Turns out she does not take Metlife for example and her team only mentioned it to me AFTER the procedure. The primary reason why I chose to come to her in the first place was the fact that I thought she was in-network. Please check check check in advance - otherwise her office might not tell you until it's too late...
This was my first visit and to a dentist outside the city. Although the offices were not that "fancy" like the ones I have been to in the city, Dr Nikkhah was great. She was very thorough, took a lot, a lot of x-rays and spent time to go over my situation. She was patient and answered all my questions. She was critical of the work done by my prior dentist and the choices she made and she reasoned it with me. My only gripe (a minor one) is that she was hesitant to talk to my previous dentist about her choices that would help determine next steps. Else, the team was very good.
She is very good. Extremely detail oriented. She does not stop short of absolute perfection. I travel over 60 miles each way to see her. She is simply put flawless!
Love this dentist and everyone on staff! She had some concerns regarding my gum inflammation, and she did research, called me about it afterwards, and kept following up. Just had my cleaning done there, and the hygienist was also wonderful. I've never had a long wait to see anyone, and even the woman at the front desk is so pleasant and efficient. Highly recommend!
The best dentist ever!
Dr.Nikkah is very knowledgeable , professional, gentle,caring and very pleasant to work with.She explains all the work in details beforehand and it makes it very easy to understand.
The dentist took great care to explain the issues I dealt with and procedures necessary to correct them. Her patience and expertise are both very much appreciated and although I never look forward to visiting a dentist, I am confident that my next visit will be as pleasant as the previous ones. Highly recommended.
Love her! She is so personable. She is probably the gentlest dentist I have ever had.
