Verified Patient Reviews
She is great! I highly recommend her and I traditionally have not had good relationships with dentists.
Dr. Arta and Dr. Melika are two of the highest quality dentists I've ever been to. They are professional, approachable and friendly! Their Potomac office is also beautiful. I love this office and the staff. I'm never leaving.
I would not recommend this doctor due to the staff I had an appointment today that I scheduled on zoc doc.When I got to my appointment the receptionist stated that the appointment I made was not available and that I would not be able to get a cleaning all I would be able to do was see the doctor for a few minutes due to his other appointments. I work in a doctor's office and that's not how you treat a patient you try to accomadate them due to it not being their fought but the office fault. Also the receptionist was very rude about the situation I was going to just wait and see the doctor but, while I was filling out paperwork the young lady was rushing me because I wanted to read everything before I signed it. She then slammed my ID and insurance card down back to me.
She was so kind and very knowledgeable! I have definitely found my new dentist! She explained everything to me in detail and answered all my questions. She even made a referral for me and made sure that the appointment was as soon as possible!
Dr. Melika is the best.
It was my first visit at a new dentist. Was impressed with their approach and the consultation. I also liked the they were going to get commitment from my insurance provider before starting any work so they do not tell me the wrong cost. I am actually looking forward to going back and getting the work done.
I'm very pleased with the service I received.
Dr. Shatergholi explained everything in detail. She provided a treatment plan with a few different options. I will be going back!
First visit was efficient and informative. I will be switching to this practice.
Dr. Melika Shatergholi is excellent. She listens and answers questions completely. She gives the pros and cons of any suggested treatment and doesn't jump to the drastic treatment when a simple solution might work as well or should be tried first.
I'm glad to have finally found a dentist who I don't dread seeing. She is friendly, professional, and skilled. The office staff is pleasant and efficient. I happily recommend the practice to friends and family.
Awesome doc very professional:)
The person I saw was very professional but welcoming. She explained everything she was going to do before she did it. It was a last minute appointment and I walked in went directly into the chair and was out in 25-30 minutes. It was the best experience I have had!
I loved it. They made me feel very comfortable.
Melika Shatergholi, DDS is a great dentist she has great bedside manners and explains everything to you so that you understand. I would definitely recommend her very highly to any family or friend.
Awesome!! Very professional and helpful. Hard to find good people with patience I the medical field!! Front Desk (Heidy) is always so very helpful!! Would recommend to ALL :)
I love Doc Melika. She is flexible, personable and can explain 'medicalese' in plain English! She is also willing to provide information and advice on alternatives if you are skeptical or wary of resorting to prescription drugs. She's the best in the area!!!
Dr. Shatergholi was very personable and great at her job. I left feeling great about my visit and I she will be my dentist from now on.
Dr. Melika and her staff are always so pleasant. They answer any questions I might have and offer suggestions on how to stay healthy as far as dental hygiene. They are on top of any new developments in the dental field and it gives me a feeling of security when I go for a visit.
she's the best dentis ever so patience and loving
Dr. Shatergholis set my mind at ease almost instantly with her calm, warm, professional demeanor. She took the time to explain everything I needed to know about both procedures and pricing. She made me feel valued and respected. Even before the appointment, her secretary communicated with me outside of office hours in order to address my emergency. I will return to her in the future and recommend her to others.
I have had some very bad experiences with different dentists in the past. This time was different. The doctor was able to diagnose the problems and made a realistic plan to addess them. I felt very well informed and less nervous because the doctor really seemed to understand the problem.
I'm terrified of Dentists and yet look forward to visiting this office again. Dr Melika was awesome, but so was her Dental Assistant and Heidi at the front desk! I was in and out way faster than I could have imagined.
I had high expectations walking in since there were so many 5 star reviews but I quickly agreed with them. Customer service here is outstanding. Dr. Shatergholi was very attentive to a problem area I had and made sure it was ok during my cleaning. Also she went over my x-rays and explained treatment options with me. Finally she laid out my treatment plan to include steps and pricing. It was all extremely transparent and easy to understand. I highly recommend her to anyone.
She is fantastic. She is very kind and considerate and the others that work in the office share this same kindness.
I always enjoy going to Dr. Shatergholi's office! Everyone is so welcoming and kind. Both Dr's always check in to see how I'm doing and make sure that I understand what is going on with my current dental health and check to see if I have any concerns. If you are looking for a dental office that cares about you this is the place for you!
service was great
I enjoyed my experience. Very polite and professional team with a current office setting.
Dr. Melika Shatergholi has to be the best dentist in the DMV!!! She was so patient and explained everything as she was performing my procedure. She made feel so comfortable and there was no pain at all. I will recommend her to everyone I know! Thank you so much!! ??????
I think the visit was good but I cannot give a complete answer since I need to go back in three weeks for a deep cleaning once my insurance approves.
Outstanding very informant and professional
The doctor (and the entire staff) was very friendly. This was my first visit to this practice and I'm impressed. The hygienist was very careful and patient while taking my x-rays and to my surprise the doctor came in right after to explain the images and discuss treatment. I am very happy to have found this practice so close to home and they even have Saturday hours which is a huge plus!
From the front desk to the Doctor, my experience was extremely pleasant. The equipment used was very high tech and the environment was very comfortable.
It was great. They even had Netflix.
Awesome....I am terrified of needles and they were understanding. I think I freaked her out from crying but she was still awesome
Very professional advice with the right assessment based on my special situation as tourist in US. Thanks a lot for your help and great Support! Gerd J.
My visit was great. Shatergholi was informative and helpful. She took time to explain my x ray results. She listened to my worries. They let me choose something on Netflix to watch while I was in the chair (good distraction.) I highly recommend her. I didn't wait long. :)
