I was experiencing a lot of pain and needed to be seen right away. The front desk receptionist was amazing and able to work me in that same day, and even called back when an even earlier appt opened up forme! When I got there I was greeted with concern and kindness and made to feel comfortable and at ease. Ashley the assistant was awesome with me, and took care of all the preliminaries quick and efficient. And when I met Dr. Hemmat I was in love immediately -- she is a fantastic doctor with a way about her that set me at ease. I will recommend all my friends and family to this clinic and look forward to my check-up next week with them. And that says a lot because I have NEVER said that before about a dentist appointment!

Dr Hemmat had angel hands. I had my fillings done today and in my 29 years of life I’ve never had such an amazing experience as today! I didn’t feel a thing and once the numbness went away I still didn’thave any pain. I can’t even believe I went to the dentist today.

I'm so impressed with this place. I haven't been to the dentist in years because of anxiety and have lots of dental problems. The staff there made me feel so comfortable and lessened my anxiety. I didn't feel judged at all.I have an extreme case of TMJ in my jaw from an injury and she was very accommodating and worked with me to keep my pain to a minimum. I have never left a dentist without being in tears but this was the first time. I can't reccomend this place enough.
