Verified Patient Reviews
Amazing facilities, staff, and care. More importantly: transparent billing.
She was excellent from start to finish. I particularly appreciated that she walked through how insurance would cover procedures. Very approachable and relatable.
Very professional and amazing facility. I will definitely be returning regularly.
It was the most painless dental care I have ever received. Will be returning for follow-up care.
Shebani's approach to dental care was amazing. Her staff was fantastic and I really liked the integration of state of the art technology into her practice.
The office was nice, modern and centrally located. The staff was very friendly and Dr. Spa was awesome.
Minus the cavities, the appointment was easy, and everything was well explained
This was my first visit and it was excellent! The front desk staff were very friendly and quick to get me checked in. The practice is beautiful; it isn't decorated like your standard place but I really liked it. Dr. Spa was fantastic in her bedside manner, explanation of exam and of payment. I have bad dental anxiety and they made everything so much better. Highly recommend!
I would highly recommend Dr. SPA. Very professional , kind and knowledgeable!
Pleasant staff, Knowledgeable, Dr. Pahwa listened to me and my suggestions of what I would like to get done and made me feel very comfortable. It was the greatest experience that I've ever had in a dental visit. I highly recommend this practice.
This was my first visit. There was an unfortunate technical glitch with the water not working for the mouth irrigation during the cleaning, but they were very professional and found a workaround and I was still finished in under an hour. I will definitely go back.
Great first time experience - will be where I go for all cleanings.
Best dentist I've ever gone to! The office is beautiful, and she is attentive, a great listener, and very professional. Highly intelligent dentists, receptionists, assistants, and other staff. Incredible experience.
Great experience. Everyone in the office was very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Spa herself is very nice and also very informative. What I especially appreciated about her that I haven't gotten in other dental offices I've been to is her clarity on services, options, and pricing. I highly recommend her and the office!
The office itself is gorgeous and the staff are amazingly friendly and helpful. The doctor was brilliant and caring, and I am thankful to have found such a great dentist on the first attempt in a new city.
Great 1st appointment. I felt comfortable and informed about my dental health. I came for a cleaning and preventive care. The office is very clean and modern, I was offered water upon entering the establishment. Dr. SPA took the time to explain the exam and cleaning, she explained the rating system used to determine the health of teeth and gums. She prescribed a follow up appointment for some trouble areas. She went over the insurance billing and costs for treatment. I really enjoyed having a dentist clean my teeth at my appointment and not to be only treated by a hygienist. A hygienist was used for polishing. The appointment was quick and painless. I highly recommend this dentist as she is thorough.
Dr. Shebani explained things at the level I needed to feel like I was making the right decisions. She was incredibly nice to me and her staff (who were also very nice). No pain whatsoever. It was my first dentist appointment in awhile and my first appointment with her, but I left feeling like I could trust her and she cared about my teeth. A+ !
She was amazing. All of her staff was super friendly and made me feel very comfortable. I was dreading my visit to a new dentist but she really made the experience a pleasant one. The office is beautiful and intentionally designed to help patients feel more comfortable and it worked! I couldn't recommend her enough.
My first time visiting the office was great! The office is cozy and feels more like a spa than a traditional dentist office. Although I did a routine examine and cleaning, the doctor explained each part of the process more than any dentist I'd visited in the past. The doctor, reception person and dental assistant were also very pleasant. I haven't always found offices where the entire staff was kind so this was a pleasant surprise.
Great, professionally atmosphere. Highly recommended!
It was great! Dr. Pahwa and staff are very welcoming and explain everything step by step, and help ease anxiety during the appointment. Also, the facility is gorgeous and truly Spa-like!
Dr. Arora was very helpful and thorough, mindful of pricing/insurance issues, and had great bedside manner. Highly recommended!
Beautiful office space (free Voss water and Pellegrino!), clean and modern looking. Convenient location to many offices. The doctor was very friendly and the appt did not feel rushed at all. I recommended her to several of my friends and will be back in 6 months!
This was my first appointment with Dr. Pahwa. I filled out some information on ZocDoc and they were courteous enough to copy over much of the information into their system, which saved me a ton of time on paperwork. Much appreciated! Dr. Pahwa really focused on teaching as she worked through the appointment. She made sure I understood what I was looking at, and ways to improve my health. I also appreciate how transparent and upfront they are about costs - she actually checked with my insurance company to get a quote for additional services before I left the office! I'm so happy I found this practice!
Dr. SPA and her staff were so pleasant and professional. Almost forgot I was at the dentist...LOL So GLAD I found this place!
They were extremely friendly and professional, and they were very flexible with my insurance situation. They made every effort to make it a pleasant visit. The space is beautiful and clean, and you can tell that they are dedicated to what they do. Thank you for a great experience!
Probably the best dental appointment I have ever had. Calm, collected atmosphere. Professional and friendly.
Simple explanations, great care, friendly, and an awesome office. Dr. SPA has put tons of work into the office and it shows.
Dr. Aurora was excellent. Her compassion shines and she provides clear concise explanations of discoveries. Additionally, I felt at ease during work performed.
So happy to finally find a good dentist in DC! Highly recommend.
Everyone was quick and helpful! They were very transparent about what they were doing and in explaining what I can do better. The office is nice and new with the most updated technology.
Everyone in the office was very professional and friendly. I was seen right away and the appointment moved quickly. Dr. Arora answered all of my questions and tailored the appointment to meet my needs. The only critique is that the cleaning (done by the dental hygienist) didn't seem very thorough.
She is very smart and personable. She is also very quick and efficient.
Dr. Shebani is very warm and kind and made me feel very comfortable during a much dreaded dental appointment. Would highly recommend to anyone who is in any way nervous about going to the dentist!
My visit to SpaDental was refreshingly calm and pretty seamless. It is a brand new office with a very zen feel (not sterile or old-school doctor's office). The staff was very friendly, and although they were still being trained and at times did not know exactly what to do, my experience was still very positive. Dr. Shebani Pahwa Arora was very good at giving directions to the staff and very thorough, detail oriented, and listened to what I was telling her about my dental history. Her bedside manner was top notch and she was very gentle in her approach. Her work on my 2 teeth seem to be perfect so far! She also explained what she was doing and why she was doing it, and told me about my options. As the office works out the minor kinks of opening a new business, I anticipate my experiences will get even better!
It was the best dental experience I’ve had. Great dentist and assistants. Very well run organization.
