Dr. Syed exceeded all of my expectations! He is not only blessed with the hard (technical) skills, but also with the soft (people) skills. This was my first visit, and I appreciated the fact that he took time to get to know me first. Almost unheard of today! He has not only earned my high praise, but also my loyalty as a patient. I will definitely go back, and will wax rhapsodic about him to all my friends!

Dr Syed is fantastic, very friendly and knowledgeable. But not very thorough, he has missed things multiple times that became issues later that another dentist had to fix. I thought it wasn't a big deal until I had two issues that came up between my 6 month visits that I had to take care of at other dentists while traveling. Both Dentists said the cavities were much older than six months. On this visit I had my exam and cleaning, and had to remind him to do the exam. Then he was in my mouth for a few minutes found one minor issue and was done. He didn't check gums, or even all my teeth. I am kind of torn, I really love Dr Syed and office in general. I have been seeing him for years. But I'm not sure if it is good for my dental health to keep coming back.

I really enjoyed my experience with Dr. Syed. He does the cleanings himself, which I really appreciated. Not that a dental hygienist can't do a good job, just had bad experiences with other offices before. Dr. Syed is really down to earth and treats you like a friend.
