I was very happy with my experience at this dentist today! I am one of those people that grew up hating the dentist, so much so that I didn't go for five years. All the ladies in this office made myexperience so comfortable and positive. I am so happy I made the choice to switch to this dentist! Thank you Kris for making my x-ray experience quick and painless! Thank you Jamie for talking me through my teeth cleaning and making it so positive. Dr. Abdulla and her wonderful staff are the reason I will be returning and referring them to everyone I know!

The office was clean and had so many amenities (they offered me coffee, wine, and even a paraffin hand wax!). It took about 30 minutes to be seen but everyone (the nurse and dentist) were both so nice and effective. Amazing visit.

My appointment was booked through ZocDoc, and we experienced a hiccup where my appointment was confirmed via email at the Rittenhouse location but scheduled through the Bala Cynwyd office. All things aside, the Rittenhouse office fit me infor a new patient exam regardless, with minimal wait time. Staff is very friendly and accommodating. Highly recommended!

I love that all the dentists are women and mostly women of color. It's incredible to receive health care from smart individuals that truly care about and for women. The entire staff was nice and welcoming. The office was clean andsterile. They offer Netflix goggles while you are having your treatment. The whole staff was able to answer questions about the process. The dentist did my teeth cleaning! Awesome experience, would definitely recommend.

I am so impressed with this dentist! It has been the best and just experience I’ve had in my life. The office is very clean, she takes time to explain everything that she’s doing as she’s doing it. Procedures that I’vehad in the past that were very painful were painless here! I was seen at my appointment time both times, instead of waiting around in an office and watching people going as your appointment time comes and goes. I highly recommend this dentist office! Plus enjoy the complementary coffee, mints, floss in the waiting room.

As good of an appointment as you can have at the dentist. The women at the front desk were very friendly, although the patient information form I filled out online the day before my appointment could not be located. No bigdeal, it was quick to fill out again on the tablet that was provided. I waited about 15 minutes in the lobby before Elise (the hygienist) walked me back to my room. X-rays and photos were taken and Elise was very good at going over them with me, which I appreciate. Cleaning was quick and painless and Dr. Abdulla was very quick to come double check and get me on my way. Definitely the best dental office I have been to by far.

Poor consultation and treatment lead to a year of painful and sensitive teeth ultimately leading to dead teeth and painful abscess. Went back time again only receive an advice to use Sensodyne. My continued trust and given benefit of doubt ended in great disappointment!

I very much enjoyed my visit! I was running about 15 minutes late and they were very accommodating and kind and saw me very quickly after I filled out the new patient forms. The space is very clean and inviting. Thedental assistant was also very pleasant and even applied lip balm during the cleaning (so thoughtful!). I would definitely recommend this place! Looking forward to my next visit!

Wonderful experience! They were quick and painless, which is always appreciated. On top of that, my doctor explained to me the best way to care for my teeth in a way that was not condescending or with the attitude that Ihaven't been doing the best job (which I haven't!). Highly recommended.

What an (oddly) pleasant dentist visit. Almost seems like an oxymoron to say that....but the dentist, assistant, & hygienist were lovely. No shaming me for perceived subpar dental practices. And they did a complimentary paraffin hand treatment. Loved it.
