I was having trouble finding parking and was a bit late for my appointment, so i called the office and the front desk ladies were very helpful, giving me directions to parking lots and excusing my considerable tardiness. All quite pleasant!

Since the last time I was at the dentist was over 20 years ago and was not a good experience, I was apprehensive to having major dental work performed. Dr. Safavian promised everything would be fine and he lived up tohis word. It was as painless as any dental experience I've had and I'm thrilled with the results. I would highly recommend Dr. Safavian to anyone who avoids going to the dentist because of past bad experiences.

I usually have to wait just to get into my apmt - then I feel like Im there for a long time after i reach the chair. It's really hard to schedule if you are a busy person. Sometimes I likewhat The doctor has to say - and other times - I feel like he changes his story from what he said before

Dr. Safavian was great, but the hygienist was not so great. She was very tough on the teeth and gums when performing the cleaning.

The Visit went very well and I was very happy with it. The Dental Hygienist and Dr Safavian were very knowledgeable and friendly. My only complaint is as follows: They offered Free whitening for new clients. I had to schedule asecond visit to be fitted for whitening trays (it only took 10 minutes) It was very inconvenient to make a second appointment for this when it should have been done the same day of the cleaning. I had to reschedule the appointment twice because they were out of product. Then I had to schedule a third appointment to make sure the whitening trays fit correctly. Overall if I could have skipped appointment two I would have been a lot more satisfied.

Ive always been seen by Dr Saga but my procedure was done by a different Dr. I was a little concerned about that thought I should have been seen by the Dr. Who was familiar with my situation. It ended up working out good in the end.

The dentist was a nice man who did take the time to talk through a question with me. He wasn't dramatic and he acknowledged that he was thinking long term about things and understood if I wasn't there yet. The dentalassistant wasn't as savvy. Having never been to this doctor or office before she made the usual superficial "getting to know you" gestures but then launched right into her sell mode. Being a student of marketing, I marveled that she thought bringing up Invisalign and it's long, expensive treatment plan would go over well when there was no trust established or reason for me to believe I might want to enter into such a relationship with a new provider. She was a nice person but this was a bad decision in my opinion. The front desk interaction was also less then stellar given her printer didn't work and she asked about scheduling a follow up that I knew nothing about. When I said no, she mentioned a treatment plan, which I had not seen, and she didn't offer to share with me. I may not have liked the bedside manner of my former dentist, hence why I tried a new one, but I do have to give them credit for always sharing a plan and the costs with me. Again, I'm a new patient and if you're truly trying to build a long term relationship then I don't think it's too much to ask for an explanation of the proposed treatment plan as well to back off selling the upgrades until at least the second meeting.

I went in to have my teeth cleaned, and I felt rushed through the process. The hygienist had to stop before my cleaning was finished to go finish someone else's cleaning. I just don't feel like I had a good cleaningsince it was rushed and paused half way through. Other than the rush everything else was fine.
