She was nice and did explain what she was doing at each step, but I felt very pushed to add "extras" like a numbing cream (which to be honest I regret not getting because the metal cleaning tool hurt me sobad i had tears streaming down my face) and flouride rinses. Then I was told I had multiple cavities when ive never had a cavity before and my previous dentist didnt mention any teeth of concern 6 months ago so I'm thinking of seeking a second opinion. Also the hours are very inconvenient for the average joe in an office job.

I pride myself in my dental care and I feel like every time I am seen by her I am leaving needing to have a cavity filled. I have never had so many cavities in all my years of seeing dentists.

She is an excellent dentist! She is willing to take time to explain what's going on with your mouth, give recommendation and options. She made me feel comfortable with the choice I made because I understood why the treatment was important.She also educate you on how you can better take care of your teeth.

I made an appointment for a cleaning. I made this clear when booking the appointment. During my appointment, all they did was take x-rays. No cleaning. I was very disappointed. I was also given a long expensive list "my treatment plan"and they wanted me to sign it on the spot. I do not like this. A patient should have time to look the treatment plan over. My intuition is telling me to find another dentist. I also felt pressured to make another appointment.

She has good technique. And, she had me redo my fillings, resulting in weakening my teeth, something that was worsened by my tooth anatomy. I have had pain and sensitivity since the procedures. And, a good dental scientist figured out the cause and the solution.

I have had significant periods between my dental work; I had seen one dentist for years before he stopped practicing, and a few years later found another facility however, seemed more money oriented than anything. Dr. Azhar reminds me of thedentist I saw regularly years ago. Her and her staff were fantastic and non-judgemental. She explained to me what instruments she was using, the process, and appeared genuine in her concerns with my oral health while allowing me to make the final decision. I was also presented with a summary of future charges for my next several visits which will give me the opportunity to set funds aside for these appointments, something that I have never received before. I'd also like to note that one of her dental assistants who was manning the phones and also took my x-rays was amazing. She was overwhelmed when I walked in but she handled it all in stride, I've never seen someone multi-task as wonderfully as she did and she always maintained a happy demeanor. Overall, a great experience.

I have a dental phobia and had put off going to the dentist for far too long. Dr. Azhar and her team were not judgmental. Instead they were very supportive, explained my dental health in ways I could understand and madethe experience a pleasant one. There was no wait time either, which is a nice perk. I recommend Dr. Azhar and her team highly.

It gave me the confidemce that I am on the right track. I would recommend that a patient be notified to use baking soda after having added enough water to make it like tooth paste as a cleaner once or twicea year to clear most problems, as I was told by a previous cleaner some years ago.
