Verified Patient Reviews
Wonderful bedside manner and really friendly. Overall very satisfied with her as a dentist, and I am pretty picky. One thing that I really liked is that she does the cleanings and other procedures herself, which gave a much more personal experience than most other dental offices that I've been to. Usually its a dental hygienist doing the x-rays and cleanings and you only spend a couple minutes with the actual dentist. That was not the case here and I very much appreciated that and felt like I was getting the best care possible. The only downside for me is that her rates are higher than many others dentists, which means more out of pocket, even for preventative care like cleanings. However, the office was very helpful in working with me on this and I do understand that this could vary based on insurance carrier. Despite the added out of pocket, definitely recommended.
Truly one of the best dentists I think i've ever been to. She explained what she needed to do during each phase of the cleaning process, really paying attention to the details. She was thoughtful about additional procedures, and checked my insurance so I was aware of additional costs before continuing on. Highly recommend this dentist.
It was great. I feel a weight off my mind now that we have a plan for my teeth!!
Silky smooth teeth make me happy
Very thorough, looks like I found my new dentist!
I was very impressed that she took pictures of my teeth, showed me each photo up close, and explained exactly what she was seeing. She looked for ways to bill the appointment to my insurer so that it would minimize my out-of-pocket expense. She was very kind and helpful.
No joke, this was the best dental experience I've had. Maria takes her time to not only DO her work, but TEACH about her work. You know exactly what's taking place and why, and that, I really appreciate. Genuinely good person also. Loved speaking with her and her assistant. I'll definitely be coming back, and recommending to friends. Thanks!
Best dental appointment I think I have ever had. Dr Majda was very patient and explained all of the work she was about to do, and made me feel very comfortable throughout the appointment. Most thorough teeth cleaning process I have ever had, and l love how clean my team look now. I will be back.
Maria is absolutely lovely and really takes the time to be thorough and take care of you. I highly recommend her.
Mrs. Majda is extremely courteous and informative in regards to possible treatment options. She keeps you in the loop as much as possible. Couldn't have wished for a better dentist.
Great bedside manner!
She took care of everything and made sure insurance and everything was in order and was very thorough
She made me feel very comfortable and important. Very grandmotherly in a good way.
Great Dentist. Caring, gentle, and skilled.
Maria is great, super nice and careful, always attentive and a lovely dentist. Looking forward to my next visit.
The best dentist experience!!
The best dentist in San Francisco; I actually look forward to my next appointment.
Most comfortable dentist visit I've ever experienced. I highly recommend this dentist!
So impressed! Dr. Majda was incredibly warm and inviting. That "boutique-style healthcare" thing comes naturally to her. She did my entire appointment herself, from x-rays to cleaning (I've never even heard of a DDS doing that before). She took me along every step of my care -- showed me x-rays and pictures of my mouth and told me what she saw and what she'd be doing about it. Her office is impressively modern (and color-coordinated!). I'd recommend her to anyone.
She's very humble and makes you feel at home
She is very detailed in her examination.
Easily one of the most positive dental experiences that I've ever had! Even though it's been several years since my last dental check up. I'll save you the horror stories. She's the best!
Dr. Majda saw me within a day for a dental emergency and was very caring & capable. Highly recommended!
From the moment i stepped into the office, I felt as if they cared about my experience. I was shown the x-rays and explained in plain english what I was looking at. I was not lectured for not flossing everyday as I know I should. Dr Majda understood and helped me get through my fear of being at the dentist.
Very gentle and caring
