Friendly and considerate
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.
Dr. Hemmat is always a pleasure to visit with. She greets me with a smile, that is contagious. Always explains what she is doing, and what I should expect. Plus, I always feel like she cares about me and my family. Always an awesome experience visiting Dr. Hemmat (I never thought I'd feel that way about visiting my dentist).
Dr. Hemmat is very professional with patience attached. She is great at her job.

She is the absolute sweetest. I was always scared of dentist visits, but the staff and doctor make the experience a great one.
The office was having technical issues with the x-ray machines so the wait was longer than usual, but Dr. Hemmat was great.
The faculty is very friendly and treat you with respect. The staff also makes sure you understand your procedure in a courteous manor. I highly recommend Peggah Hemmat!
What normally is an aggravating experience, this was one of the best

Peggah Hemmat is a wonderful dentist. I feel like she goes above and beyond to make sure you have a great experience. Her dental assistants are also great and I highly recommend Zam Dental to anyone looking for a great dental experience.
I am 68 years old. This was the best dental appointment in my lifetime. Dr. Hemmat and her team were super friendly, courteous, and very knowledgeable. I'm looking forward to my follow-up appointment next week. Thanks
All went well! Dr. Hemmat is wonderful. She numbed me well and I didn't feel a thing. She is always friendly too. ??
I really loved coming here. I was nervous as I was well overdue for a checkup and had a crown come loose. They were super inviting and answered all questions I had. Staff and Dr were both congenial and friendly. Highly recommend this office! I did get there early to complete new patient paperwork, but they were ready to see me when I was ready.
She was amazing she talked to me about my treatment plan, the biggest of all she didn't hurt me at all and I have 2 teeth pulled and 2 fillings, love love my dentist
Dr Hemmat was professional and courteous during my appointment. She took the time to explain different oral practices to me (different rinses, toothpastes, etc). She was gentle and would check to see if I was okay during the cleaning. I have recommended this practice to friends and family
Dr. Hemmat was professional and punctual but, more importantly, she put me at ease. She answered all of my questions and respected the decisions I made regarding my own care while making sure I understood every step of the process. There were no surprises, no pain, and no anxiety. She even took extra initiative to help me with a mouthguard I have been unable to replace with my previous dentist. I highly recommend Dr. Hemmat without reservation.
Emergency appointment seen right away. Dr Hemmat did a great job and was very friendly. I will be going back and telling my friends. Thank you for a great day that started out badly.....
I always have such a great time ever time i visit. I know i am in great hands! Everything goes smoothly. Definitely recoomend.
