I had a pretty positive experience here. I was able to book online for a Saturday morning appointment with ease through Zocdoc and liked being able to pre-fill forms. The receptionist was attentive and polite, we had some trouble finding myinsurance because it was so new but she took care of it and followed up after my appointment. The appointment itself went well - the dental hygienist was the first to meet me and worked on me for a long time. It's possible because I hadn't been to the dentist recently that it was so long and she said all my tartar build up was terrible. I will say the way she talked to me about it made me feel a little terrified, like I'd need to invest in some type of deep cleaning. Also, the hygienist didn't properly introduce herself so for the entire time I seriously thought she was the dentist. Later on the dentist joined us and showed me photos of the cavities they identified and a couple where you could see them forming. She suggested treatment on everything. This practice is nice and you can tell with their furnishing they are going for a more upscale, dental spa type feel. I imagine your charged accordingly for the upscale vibe. I may or may not go back. I am not looking for many fancy things in a dentist, just a place that cleans well and stays on top of my treatment. I had a family dentist my whole life that fit this bill but I've moved away and have not found that family feel in the Arlington area yet. I give a four star rating overall, I think you may want to consider a more family practice type of office if you're looking for a more down to earth, straight forward dentist office.

After visiting a total of 6 dentists between my husband and I, we finally found Parinaz Movaghari DDS. She is by the best dentist I have ever met. She is kind, patient, and they really help you feel relaxed and welcomed.I usually twitch with injections, but I have never felt any of the injections received from Parinaz Movaghari. All my experiences at this dentist has been painless, friendly and walks you through all the steps she is taking with your teeth. you get to sit in a massaging chair and watch netflix while she works her magic!

This visit was unlike any visit I've had to a dental (or other medial professional) office. It was delightful! The office is beautifully decorated. Everything is clean and modern. Technology is everywhere -- from the digital "films" displayedon the computer monitor in the exam room just moments after xrays are taken, to the chair that has a gentle back massage feature (not kidding!). The dental hygienist and dentist were prompt, knowledgeable, kind, and considerate. I need to go back for a filling and, frankly, I'm looking forward to it!

As always, Dr. MO was amazing. I was late, and the office was packed with back-to-back appointments. Being late is a huge pet peeve for myself, and I can only imagine how she felt knowing that she had other people tosee. I apologized hysterically, and she nor her staff even let on that it was an issue. They are always so pleasant and professional to me. Such a great company!

This is what going to the dentist should be like. For anyone who is very nervous about dental work, the team here, Cara on reception, Desree the Assistant and Dr Movaghari will make the experience as calm as stress free aspossible. In my 35 years of needing dental work, this practise is simply miles ahead. Do not hesitate. My wife and i have both had the same first class service and wanted to let anyone else who is new to the area know, you will be completely taken care of. The details are really where they shine - headphones if you don't like the sound of procedures, netflix, massaging chair while they work, and no sense of a rush at any stage even though they are a very busy practise - which makes complete sense having been there twice now for work in one week. Go to the best. Matthew & Kristy.

I absolutely loved my first visit with Dr. Mo and Desiree, and have already been busy recommending them to my friends! I was so impressed with the entire experience, from Kara — the receptionist, who remembers my face and name fromwhen I first made the appointment — to Desiree — my hygienist, who explained everything she was doing as she went along — to Dr. Mo, who was so fun and sweet. Rather than going through the entire appointment and cleaning before getting to meet with the doctor for two minutes (which is what happens at most dentists), Dr. Mo came over right after Desiree finished with the x-rays and walked me through them, explaining the mouth's anatomy, what she was looking for and what she saw in my x-ray. I loved learning about more of the technical side of dentistry and seeing images to go with it. She then worked on my teeth a bit before Desiree came back to finish the appointment with flossing and polishing. As I was sitting in the chair, I was also pleased to hear that other patients were having the same experience. It's clear the dentists and staff know their patients and look forward to getting updates on their lives before taking care of their health concerns. The little perks — a beautiful office space, relaxing music and a massage dental chair — put my experience over the top. I could not be happier with my choice in a dentist!

Dr. Movaghari is hands down one of the best doctors/dentists I have had the privilege to meet. She is kind, genuine patient, and understanding.Dr. Mo always takes her time to make her patients feel comfortable and makes a strong effort tobuild relationships with her patients. I have always had anxiety about going to the Dentist office, but now, I look FORWARD to going to Dr. Mo's office. Her staff, Desiree and Kara, are amazing and incredibly thoughtful. Lastly, she never pushes treatments onto her patients, which feels like a breath of fresh air!

Excellent dentist! Understands patient psychology (i.e., most patients fear dentists) and tries to make you feel comfortable and relaxed even during complex procedures. She is both friendly and technically skilled. The dental work shehas done for me has been top-notch. I have not experienced pain during any procedure--including anesthesia injections and the placement of a dental implant (which requires drilling into the bone). Before meeting Dr Mo, I had an intense fear of dentists; now, I look forward to my next visit. Double-thumbs up, the best dentist ever!

Dr. Movaghari was super attentive, very considerate and really understanding with the anxiety I was struggling with. She answered all of my questions in the days before, and still so kindly sat with me and went over exactly what was goingto happen in the consultation as well as just before the procedure started. During, she checked in with me often and really made sure I was comfortable and doing okay. I have had some bad experiences before and so I came in with a lot of fear but she and all the wonderful staff at Dental Devotion made it a great experience.

I had both my appointments with her husband Dr. Urtega, but Dr. Mo also did my anesthetic. They are both so sweet, gentle, and caring. They both took such good care of me. I actually LIKED going to their practice. I'venever liked going to the dentist before. I have so much anxiety!. they have the most comfy massage chair and when i had a long procedure they set me up with netflix screen and giant headphones right above me. Their staff is also always very sweet and caring. they are seriously the best practice I've ever been to. They answered all my questions, gave me several referrals, and were very attentive.

I had a dental emergency and no local dentist to go to for treatment. Luckily, my co-worker recommended I go to Dr. Movaghari - the office took me right away, and the treatment was top notch. She checked in on myprogress throughout the next few days, and explained everything that was going on very clearly. I felt very well-taken care of. The office is as calming as a dentist's office could possibly be (massaging chairs! netflix and earphones to distract you during procedures!) They've got a patient for the long run now - thank you so much!

She is a highly professional and skilled dentist who has transformed my beliefs about dentistry. Before meeting her, I thought that dental issues were permanent problems with temporary solutions. With Dr Mo, I think that they are temporaryissues with permanent solutions. Dr Mo has a keen eye for patient psychology; her main concern is patient comfort and satisfaction. She would have made an excellent pediatrician and psychologist, but I feel lucky that she has chosen dentistry, as it is hard to come across talented dentists.
