I thought Dr. Silhan was helpful, thorough and did a great job of overall. Additionally, he offered to help adjust my night guard whenever it comes in (despite the fact that it was ordered through another dentist in California while I was visiting there). I highly recommend Dr. Silhan.

Dr. Silhan is an awesome dentist - he is thorough and never rushes you through an appointment - he answers any/all questions and gives clear examples and options regarding all treatment procedures. He also honors your appointment time and doesn't over-book or keep you waiting.

Dr. Silhan is wonderful. If you ask, he will take the time to explain everything to you -- you can have a learning experience while he cleans your mouth. He takes you through any x-rays he takes and gives great recommendations to manage any problem you may have. Highly recommend!

He does the cleaning in like 25-30 min...doesn't feel like its super cleaned though. I mean he does a decent job but i feel its rushed. I think one time I was in and out in 25 min flat, the cleaning itself should be that time..

The doctor was super sweet and very kind, however the technology was totally outdated so all the x-rays were taken manually, one of each tooth. I had to go back to see him for the results.

He's my favorite dentist by far. He doesn't badger you about flossing in comparison to others who had been very aggressive. He's friendly and professional - I highly recommend him. My appointment was by far the quickest I've had, only 10 mins for a routine cleaning.

He was very rough with my teeth. When cleaning away plaque he made all of my gums bleed because of stabbing them instead of gently cleaning around them. I felt as though he was in a hurry to be over withmy appointment and was not worried about my best interest. He was a nice enough person, but as a dentist I would not visit again.

I had a checkup and cleaning. He was excellent. I learned a lot about maintaining my teeth and gums while he worked, and he showed me certain areas on my teeth that I should be aware of. Getting your teeth cleanedis not usually pleasant, but I actually learned a lot of useful info and got in and out quickly. I highly recommend Dr. Silhan.
