Dr. Palhan was great! She took great care of me and had me in and out in no time at all. I felt like she really cared about my health and well being and made sure to give me specific informationabout where I can improve my oral health and what I'm doing well. One thing that really stood out to me was the way she addressed her staff. She was very courteous and professional to them and not just to patients. Overall she seems to have everyone's well being in mind, not just her patients. I totally recommend her if you are looking for a dentist.

Dr.Shalu was great. She is very knowledgeable and walked me through every step of the process about what she was doing. She discussed in detail the treatment plan, and her suggested treatment plan is to the point. She does not recommendany treatment that is not needed. Also I was a little late for my appointment, but they were very accommodative and I had zero wait time despite being late. Would definitely recommend her to others :)

The office is nice and quiet. They had Grey’s Anatomy on while I was waiting. The staff was very nice and professional yet still relatable. Dr. Palhan is very kind in the way she speaks to you, She jokes around andsmiles so it puts you at ease. She also gives very in depth information about anything going on with your teeth/ gums and makes suggestions/ plans on how to better things. This makes me feel like I can trust she is going to do what’s best for whatever my situation is. I think I’ve found my new dentist!

Dr. Palhan is always so good about giving clear explanations and feedback on care. She is patient and precise on any follow up care. She always gives high praise for the way I care for my teeth daily and shows howwith just a few changes, I could have a healthier mouth. She takes time to answer questions and makes me feel like I'm the only person in the world that she is focused on. Love this office staff and the best Dentist in Dallas.

I loved my first experience at Dr. Palhan's office / Enamel Dental! The office was very clean, the front desk staff was personable and engaging. Their hygienist was softspoken and very kind, with a gentle hand. Most importantly, Dr. Palhan wasso very kind, professional, and thorough. She made me feel like she truly cared about me and my treatment plan. She also took time with me that made a difference in the way I look at dentistry and how important it is to maintain oral health. "Dentistry isn't expensive, but neglect is!" I will continue to see Dr. Palhan in the future and highly recommend her and her staff!

Dr. Palhan continues to be my family's dentist because her and her team are A+/#1/the BEST. We've been coming here for over a year now and even after we moved 30 minutes further from her office, we still make sure toget our chompers taken care of by Dr. Palhan and her team. Her and her team have always been professional, personable and on-time with us. Bottom line: My family and I trust Dr. Palhan and her team to take care of our teeth.

The staff at this location was kind and friendly. Ally was super sweet and very professional when taking my x-rays and when she helped the doctor with my cleaning. Dr. Palhan was also very gentle with my treatment AND she wasvery courteous asking if she could lean the chair back and if I was comfortable. Dr. Palhan was recommended to me by two people in my office in Irving. I would certainly recommend her, I live in Keller and rely mostly on referrals for doctors. Thanks you! Linda

To the rescue! She is truly an angel from Heaven! My mother who is in her mid 60's was In horrible pain she hadn't eaten in a days and her whole left side of her face was swollen the the nextmorning I panicked! Dr. Shalu Palhan was the first person who popped in my head to help my mom I called and she fit right in and took care of my mother. It's so hard to find a dentist that someone can trust and not money driven!

I had been to Dr Palhan’s office for a general checkup and deep cleaning. She reviewed my dental health, presented treatment options and ensured that I was aware of the costs before I made my decision to go ahead with thecleaning. She took care to make me comfortable and at ease, and explained every step of the procedure before she begins it. I would recommend Dr Palhan to anyone in this area.

I absolutely LOVE this entire office. They are so thoughtful, they know my name when I walk in and ask me about specific things in my life. The wait is pretty short and I can go during lunch, leave my office,do the exam, and get back to my office in about an hours time! They are gentle yet thorough and they don't ask you to answer questions while they have tools in your mouth. They are very encouraging and are super honest but in a nice way. I am so happy to have found a dentist who I actually (kind of) enjoy going to see twice a year-as much as anyone can enjoy going to the dentist. My husband and I took advantage of a promotion they had on whitening, and we LOVED our results! They made the process as fun and painless as possible. The staff is always upbeat and smiling when I see them and brings joy and energy to dentistry. If you are looking for a great dentist who actually cares, you should check them out.
