This dentist office seemed a bit old school, but I appreciated the simplicity of it all. After previous dentist that I've gone to that operated more like used-car salesman, I appreciate that no one in this office tried to up-sell meon unnecessary dental services/work - and for that, I'd go back. Plus, Saturday hours and no long wait times!

I won't be back to this dentist. While I was getting my cavity filled, the dentist screamed in my face "Oh my God! That's huge!!" She said this more than once. Also, the lady who was responsible for prepping me beforethe dentist came in was very unprofessional and unorganized. I had to tell the dentist to give me more anesthesia because she was getting ready to start the procedure before my mouth was numb! I won't be back.

My wife felt some unprofessionalism at their office. She got a cigarette smell from assistance nurse. Nuse wasn't staying there for entire treatment time (which wasn't cased if you go to another doctor). A doctor has given her a numbing injectionbut never check back with her about how she is doing rather than that, she just started the treatment.

Pleasantly surprised by the service received. Staff was very courteous and professional. The dentist was very considerate of the patients care and took the time to explain each step of the process all the way through the end of the appointment.Only down side was that the equipment and office were a bit dated. Could use updating or fresh look. But overall a great experience.

I love the staff and the Doctors. I love how they'll give you options to make a choice on payments before getting any work done. The staff will let you know what you're covered for and what you'll have to pay.The office is always clean and smells nice. It's in a nice area. I recommended this office to everyone :-)

This was my first visit and the front desk staff didn't acknowledge me at first and it took about 30 minutes past my appointment time to be seen, so I was a bit worried; however, once I was taken back toa treatment room, the staff was great. Dr. Ajmal was fantastic; she greeted me warmly and took great care of me. I'm planning to return regularly.

I was there over an hour before anyone even had my open my mouth. This has happened twice. Also she said I needed a procedure with no real evidence to back up her claim, so I'm getting a second opinion and probably a new dentist.

Due to anxiety over a really bad dental experience I had not seen a dentist in 7 years. I was a little nervous going in but Dr. Ajmal's kind, parient, calming demeanor really helped relax me. I got through the examwith no issues and left with a clear picture of my dental health, a treatment plan and even what it would cost me. Highly recommended for those who "don't like the dentist."

I don't often write reviews, but felt compelled to write one for Dr. Ajmal dentistry. From the moment I walked in everyone was kind and helpful. Dr. Ajmal genuinely cares about her patients, the quality of her work is impeccable, andher staff is friendly and efficient. Look forward to going to Dr. Ajmal and her Dentistry office for years to come.

Dr. Ajmal is awesome. I went into a examination room right away, had the necessary X-rays quickly, and was able to have a cleaning and a wisdom tooth extracted within 40 minutes. Dr. Ajmal is very funny and a complete professional. Highly recommend.

People there were nice & helpful with any questions I had. I think that they may need to upkeep on cleanliness however, that is the only thing I noticed that may drive people away from coming there. Other than that thevisit went well and I will be back soon.

Dr. Ajmal was fantastic. I was having terrible pain where part of my cheek and lower gum was being smashed between my upper and lower wisdom teeth. I expected to be told that the infection in the gum would have tobe treated before an extraction of the lower tooth could be performed, because the lower tooth is only partially erupted and the upper tooth came in with no crowding. But she understood the incredible pain I was in (I couldn't eat! Would wake myself up for accidentally chomping!) and extracted the upper tooth that day. She used local anesthesia and I didn't feel a thing. Took her two minutes to extract. All in all, I went to the doctor expecting to be told to wait a week, and in less than an hour a culprit tooth was pulled, and I was back in my car headed to the pharmacy with a prescription for antibiotics. I highly recommend her. Also, the entire visit, exam, X-Ray, and extraction, was very reasonably priced (no insurance).
