The dentist is a kind lady. The other staff needs work. At check in I was told I would only get a consult and x-rays, not a cleaning. I booked an appointment for a cleaning, it's the only reason I wasin the office. I was not told before that they do a consult then book you for an appointment at a later date for service. Yes, they did manage to get me in for a cleaning, small victory. While waiting for the x-rays I was placed in a room with a tv. The program on that day was featuring young Amazon boys undergoing torture rituals. Not a program I want to watch while waiting or ever for that matter. Then, I was moved to another room where Parks and Reaction was on. Also, not a show I'd think appropriate for a place of business. The lady that cleaned my teeth did an okay job. I assure you she didn't do a through cleaning. At the end the Dr never stepped in to check her work. I was just sent out to pay my bill. I won't go back to this office and caution anyone who thinks of getting any service there.

I have not been to a dentist in years (unfortunately) and when I came here, I signed in and was taken back within 5 minutes. (It helps if you check in online before your appointment). I had my son and daughterin the waiting room and the staff in the front was caring and playful with them. The hygienist was gentle and answered my questions well and made me very comfortable. When Dr Rakesh came in, which was shortly after my x-rays, she did a full evaluation, taking her time to explain every detail to me. She allowed me to ask questions and was patient and knowledgeable. I would recommend anyone to her and would actually highly recommend the office.

Dr Rakesh was very friendly, and I felt like she was trustworthy. I hadn't been to the dentist in quite a while, so they had to do a deep cleaning and a few small fillings. They were able to take careof this in the same appointment, which saved me a lot of time. The staff was helpful, great at listening, and was very informative throughout the visit.

Finding a dentist is a frustrating process. It is pretty much a blind item and I have receive the used car approach with other dentists. Dr. Rakesh was kind and reasonable without trying to oversell. I am moving the whole family over to her office.

my visit to Dr Rakesh was very good. Everyone there was very nice and I had a great experience with Dr Rakesh. Initially she couldn't do the cleaning with my visit that day and she found time to fit that Intoo. She explained any charge to me before performing what would be charged. I highly recommend her!

I love her and her staff. They were all so nice and helpful. The woman at The front desk (Mary) is awesome. She explained and broke down all of my charges and answered all my questions and concerns. The hygienist wasso motherly and nice, I felt very comfortable and like I have been coming to this office for years. The dentist was great and very informational. Even though I have to get a route canal! (Yikes!!) she made it seem like a walk in the park and I believe her!;) I would highly recommend this office to EVERYONE!!

Dr Rakesh is very pleasant and was patient when dealing with me. I had some immediate issues that needed to be addressed and she took good care of me. Was disappointed however in the fact that even after X-rays, and aprevious consultation I showed her on my first visit where it was outlined I needed several fillings, when I called to schedule it the Dr acted like it was the first time she had heard of it, and said I would need to come in first so she could see my teeth before scheduling the fillings. I felt that was inconsiderate considering I drive 40+mins to see her. Also even though I was prescribed a mouthwash I would need to use indefinitely, I had to keep calling up her office for refills instead of her prescribing it with refills. When I would call the receptionist seemed a bit short and I felt she was rushing me off the phone, and this happened when I called with questions or concerns for the Dr. as well. With the distance, and the lack of attention to details I am changing my dentist

Dr. Rakesh and staff were very friendly and responsive, especially at 7 am! It was a nice change having the Dentist actually perform my cleaning(not sure if that's an everyday thing or not but was a nice difference). Brand new office with state of the art equipment.

The office is very clean and very presentable. Dr. Rakesh is genuine and cares about me. She gave a full treatment plan and let me make my choices. They did not rush on me and took time to explain the treatmentplan. It is a calm professional environment. Michelle made my entire visit very easy and pain free. She took time to go over the financing options and explain it to me. I will soon return back with family here.
