My first appointment with Dr. Bakshi topped expectations. She took her time answering all my questions and explaining processes in detail, all with a lovely smile on her face. I will definitely be visiting again.

It is extremely evident that Dr. Bakshi really cares about her patients’ well-being and patient education. She took the time to explain the different layers of the teeth and my dental x-rays to me so that way I could understand myteeth, their needs, and how to better take care of them. I understand how I should be flossing and brushing my teeth + which teeth/gums needed extra love; an extra 5-10 minutes of her time may have spared me a future of many more fillings, or worse, a mouth full of rotting teeth. Thank you Dr. Bakshi!

Dr. Bakshi was really nice and calmed my nerves with her great bedside manner. The last time I visited a dentist was back in 2012 and I was a bit traumatized by that experience. After 7 years I finally made aneffort and I am pretty sure I made the best decision by choosing Dr. Bakshi. She took my x-rays and explained me in detail about which tooth have problems and which of them need be saved pretty immediately. She made sure that I was ready for some treatment (fillings) that day, and it did not hurt at all. Even the anesthesia did not give me that "pinch" feeling. After the appointment, she followed me up with an email about everything we discussed and she kept checking up on me if there was any pain, etc. for the next two days. I would highly recommend Dr. Bakshi.

This is the best dentist appointment I've had in awhile. Dr. Bakshi constantly made sure that I was comfortable the entire time and explained everything she was doing throughout the entire appointment. She also took the time to explain everythingto me which I really appreciated–no dentist has ever done that! She also was very cognizant of how much time I had for the appointment and had me out as soon as I said I needed to be on my way to work. If you have anxiety about the dentist, she is definitely one who will ease your concerns and make you feel comfortable in the chair once again. 10/10 would recommend!

Dr. Bakshi was super professional. I haven't been to the dentist in about 5 years, and I was super nervous going with the idea that I'd need a lot of work done. She reassured me right away and made me feelcomfortable. She went through my x-rays in detail, explaining what everything means and making sure it all made sense to me. She followed up right away, and was very transparent on the treatments I needed. The office was also really nice and clean! Highly recommend.

I was very anxious, as I haven't been to the dentist in a long time, but Dr. Bakshi was amazing. She was nonjudgemental, informative, and friendly. Every step of the way she let me know what to expect. She was alsovery transparent about future costs, and went out of her way to check what was/wasn't covered by my insurance and what I could expect to pay for future procedures. She also sent a great follow up by email, recapping what we talked about as well as what to expect with the insurance process. I have already recommended her to several people!

Dr. Bakshi was super friendly and did her best to make me feel comfortable. She had a student she was teaching during my appointment, which I actually loved since I got a better understanding and warning of what was about tohappen throughout the appointment. I've never had a dentist go through x-rays and feel like my concerns were truly being heard, and Dr. Bakshi did just that.

Dr. Bakshi is truly an amazing healthcare practitioner. After being treated coldly and rushed by previous dentists, this experience was the polar opposite. She took the time to explain to me what she would be doing, showing me my X-Rays andby demonstrating best dental care practices. By far, the best experience ever! She will have me coming for my biannual cleaning and exams!
