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 was visiting relatives from out of town and broke a filling. I called Dr. Palhan's office at 9 in the morning and was treated by 4 that afternoon. The staff were terrific, and the atmosphere was friendly, almost like family.I've never heard some much laughter in a dentist's office! These people really like their work.

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.

I did make her aware that I am always a bit wary of the pain during cleaning. So, she took good care of that as well. Was a good first visit for me!

This visit was short and sweet, just to cement in the crown that was ordered at the time of my first visit. Everyone was in a good mood, they laughed at my jokes, and I was treated by Dr. Shalu andher assistant like family. Good family. The doctor took very good care of me, explained every move she made before doing it, and with a few zips of the drill, carved the crown to a perfect fit, not in my mouth,but on the work table. No discomfort and no pain. Just gain. I'll be glad to come back for regular cleanings and the next time a tooth acts up. Thanks again, Dr. Shalu.

I always pick lady physicians when I'm in pain -- they are kinder and gentler than males and don't suffer from testosterone poisoning. I've been to Dr. Palhan's clinic before, and it's the best that dentistry can offer. I get personalservice from the Dr. and all her staff, and they laugh at my jokes, even when my mouth is numb and full of cotton. She takes care to make me comfortable and at ease, and explains every step of the procedure before she begins it. I'm not an overly anxious patient, but I appreciate the information and the concern. I've been treated my US military dentists, by German dentists, by country-clubbing American dentists and even by Chinese and Korea dentists, and Dr. Palhan is the world's best. The clinic is a short ride down the road for me, so I'm seen for the appointment as soon as I walk through the door.

Great visit! Dr. Palhan has a new dental hygienist named Reba and she did a great job! Allysa took my X Rays and Charla at the front desk was friendly and gave me a bottled water to drink while I checkedin with her. They took me in right away. I have been a dental patient of Dr. Palhan for over 5 years. When I found out she had her own practice, I followed her! She has a great staff and her Office has all the latest dental/X-Ray etc. technology! Highly recommend!
