Dr. Shah was very professional and courteous. He took his time explaining what I needed to have done and didn’t make me feel rushed or pressured to do it all at once. I enjoyed meeting Dr. Shah and would highly recommend him! Excellent service!

Seriously, the best Dentist I have ever had. I live in Lakewood Dallas and am still willing to drive up to North Dallas/almost Plano to see Dr. Shah. He's that good! His office is pristine, his bedside manners are unmatched andhe actually cleans your teeth himself. He is always forthcoming about treatment (informing you if you need the treatment right away or if it can wait a little bit to see if progression has occurred). His staff is always friendly, they great me with a smile and they remember my name. Dr. Shah remembers conversations we had 6 months ago and follow-ups (i.e. trips, vacations, etc). I have referred many co-workers to Dr. Shah because he deserves all the success he gets. If I could give him 10 stars I would.

Dr Nilay Shah was absolutely fantastic! He has excellent bedside manner and really shows interest in his patients. He took the time to ensure that my chipped tooth was fixed and I was happy. Discovered him through Zocdoc by accident butI'm really glad I chose to go to him. Would highly recommend!

Can I say awesome, I took my 3 and 5 year old boys in for a checkup for the first time with doctor Shah, He and his assistant were truly out of this world with my kids. My youngest usually freaksout and goes nuts so I was amazed that they got him to let them in his mouth with all smiles, I have never seen a dentist visit were the kids had a blast until now, this dentist is truly one in a million.

After a bad experience at a previous dentist who refused to clean my teeth without charging me for a bunch of extra treatments and trying to sell me on other services, I was so happy to have such an excellent experiencewith the Preston Smiles. The exam was a breeze, the cleaning was great, and all my questions were answered. I was in and out in no time! I highly recommend them and will have my husband make an appointment as well!!

One of the best dentists I have visited, great chairside manner and took time to answer all of my questions. Facility is modern with latest dental gadgetry, including an ultrasonic dental scaler (the tool used to scrape off plaque) which wasmuch more comfortable than the conventional method and resulted in almost no bleeding. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Shah and his staff.
