This whole office is wonderful. Dr. Rafiei does fantastic work and is incredibly friendly. His staff also ensures you feelcomfortable and are also very friendly. After having a few things done over a couple months, I was actually sad when I realized I wasn’t going back for a few months, because they’re all so sweet. Highly recommend!

Of coursed, the waiting was never fun, especially with any doctors, but it was well worth waiting, and realizing others have trusted the Doc coming to see him last minutes. I had few major treatments to be worked on and the results are excellent!

It was quick, thorough, and he explained everything he was doing and what he found. I just wish he had also explained the treatment estimate. I will have to call to find out what are the different charges I can expect,but that's not a big deal - it's just a phone call, and he did have another patient waiting. I feel very comfortable going to his office.

My visit to see Poria Rafiei was first rate. For starters, when I walked in the front door the reception area was immaculate and looked like somebody's living room. Secondly, the staff were very professional and pleasant. Finally, the Dentist,Poria, greeted me with a welcoming smile and then was very thorough in explaining the procedure he was going to conduct. The equipment was all very high tech and extremely hygienic. I have nothing but praise for the dental practice during my visit.

Because I have a history of jaw pain, Dr. Rafeie broke my treatment plan into several manageable visits so that I can be comfortable and minimize any pain or soreness. I really appreciated that he went over x-rays and photos ofevery tooth with me to not only explain but show me what was going on. I’ve never had any dentist spend so much time making sure I understood what what was good and what needed attention immediately or in the future.

This being my first time visiting Dostinct Dental I am excited! Excited to have a dentist who cares about the person they're working on. I have never been so happy to go back to the dentist. My root canal Was sopainless, even after the surgery. These people care about there patients, and the staff is just hands down amazing! Definitely coming back and recommending (actually already have numerous times) honestly the best a dentist appointment can be.

Bed side manner is highly important to me. I must say that Dr. Rafiei exceeded my expectations. In all of my years of visiting dental professionals I left his office with more knowledge regarding the health of my teeth then everbefore! He actually took the time to review my x-rays with me as well as my financial responsibility (something that never occurred before). Needless to say I scheduled my 6 month follow-up.
