This place is amazing! I came back for a regular cleaning. Unfortunately looks like cavity strikes again. Fortunately, I was able to get it taken care of immediately. Dr. Samira was gentle and numb me up just the right amount so the procedure was painless. Which really made what could have been a terrible day pretty good. This certainly makes going to the dentist actually enjoyable. Also kudos to the front desk staff and the hygienist who did my cleaning, very professional and spot on customer service.

Dr Shenasi was super nice and sympathetic given that I was a new patient and in for an emergency. My biggest fear and frustration with dental professionals has always been the "judgment" that I don't do well enough in my dental care. She did none of this. Instead she was understanding and compassionate.

Dr. Shenasi was very professional, efficient and detailed in her assessment. Her staff are incredibly nice and helpful as well as professional. I went in for a cleaning and was called back on time and very quickly. The cleaning was thorough and painless.The only negative was that I kind of felt like I was getting sold on different procedures/electric tooth brushes, etc. that I may not necessarily need. Otherwise, the office was very clean and lovely.

Dr. Shenasi and her staff were perfectly pleasant, but this is absolutely an overpriced dentist. I was charged ridiculous amounts of money for a cleaning (barely a cleaning, in my opinion) and xrays. Overall, the experience didn't leave me with a good feeling. And after receiving a second opinion, I need only half of the fillings that Dr. Shenasi insisted I did.

Great experience with our 7 year old. Dr. Shenasi has a professional, friendly staff. Great facility. Immediately put my child at ease and have been great about answering our questions and concerns. We truly enjoy taking my daughter here. Not only is Dr. Shenasi so sweet but she is very patient. She knows exactly what she is doing and great with kids! Also her assistant/hygienist is amazing! I wish we lived closer to the her practice, but well worth making the trip downtown for such wonderful service!

Awful. My 5 year old daughter had an 8:30 appointment to get a filling. We were not seen until 9. Because of this I had to leave out for approximately 5-10 minutes to feed the parking meter. When I came back the dentist had already started trying to give a 5 yr old a filling without her parent(s) there. Unacceptable! I walked in and saw my daughter crying and being held down while the dentist was attempting to stick her for the second time to numb her gums. This was my daughter's first filling so any dentist should know that a 5 yr old was not going to cooperate when you stick a needle in her gum. Common sense should tell you that it would be best to wait until her dad returned, she's 5! To make matters worse, the dentist looked at me with a frustrated look on her face and said she isn't cooperating. I looked at her and asked are you surprised?! I was able to calm my daughter down so that they could proceed with the filling. My daughter was still upset and crying a little during the process. The dentist had the audacity to tell her "oh no, we don't cry and make noise here, you're going to scare away the other patients"... really?! That was the last straw. We will not be coming back! If you have young children do not take them here!!!

Her recommendation for treatment was much more conservative than needed; i.e., suggested more treatment. Also, the treatments were overly priced.

I should have known, as I got bad vibes from everyone I interacted with in this office. If she tells you to get a crown, please get a second opinion! Dr. Shenassi makes it seem like a standard procedure, described to me as " exactly the same" as filling a cavity. Being unfamiliar with the procedure, I was not aware my entire tooth would be filed down! By the time I realized this, it was too late. This is my fault, as I should have done my research. Months after the procedure, my tooth is more sensitive than it was before with the small cavity I was trying to fix. If they tell you to get a crown, just say no!! This is how they make m0ney. The services are way overpr!ced, and I was overch@rged. Please go somewhere else.

I really like Dr. Shenasi and her team a great deal. I rarely have to wait more than 5 minutes to be brought back into a treatment room, all of the team are professional and personable, and the level of care I have received over my 2+ years using this practice has been great. I will continue to use Dr. Shenasi regularly for as long as she is in practice!

My Dentist spoke of of how she cared for her father; he and I are similar conditions. At at a specific point in time I asked her, after all she did for her father was he happy. She smiled. I was eased and I I smiled, without any teeth. Soon I'll have a smile to match my pretty brown eyes.

Dr. Shenasi was able to give me a same day appointment for a broken tooth. It turns out I need 2 root canals. She cleaned out the tooth decay, made temp caps and was sure to ask if I was in pain. Her assistant, Aiyonna was great too! I have a follow-up on Friday to begin the root canals. I highly recommend Soft Touch Dentists. They're great and conveniently located at 20th & K St NW. I don't have to go to a different dentist office to have my root canal done.
