I was very impressed with my first visit to Tariq Riyal DDS. First of all, I was able to check in and complete my paperwork online while en route to the appointment, love the efficiency! When I arrived the staff was friendly and polite, quickly ushered me back to get X-rays, and even encouraged me to choose something to watch on Netflix while I waited. Everyone I encountered was polite, knowledgable, and had great bed side manner. Treatment options were explained in great depth but in a way that was easy to follow and understand. I will definitely be back and will recommend Tariq Riyal DDS to friends and family.

My visit exceeded all expectations. Dr. Riyal is very professional and personable. He took time to explain treatment for myself and my 2 teenage children better than any other dentist I have ever seen. We all had excellent care. The staff are all very professional and kind. The front office staff and all assistants sincerely like working there because their bosses treat them well (I asked). I enthusiastically recommend Mizwak to all my friends ant coworkers.

From the moment I walked in the door I was in excellent care. Throughout each stage of the visit (even including billing) each person that worked with me introduced themselves, explained their role, their procedure, equipment, and recommendations. Each individual was super friendly and helpful and made sure I was comfortable (you get to watch Netflix!) and informed on everything. Rarely would I say a dentist visit is necessarily a good experience -- however, Mikwak, Dr. Riyal and his team are excellent! I've found my new dentist!

Everyone was very friendly. They had Netflix in the room, so I chose a show to watch while my x rays and cleaning were done. The doctor patiently answered my questions and explained additional services that I was interested in. I feel that the care and service were excellent.

I had a xrays, exam, cleaning, and evaluation for getting an implant. Highly recommended with a small 'but.' Dentist did not try to pressure me into random useless procedures. However, I was not offered a choice between types of fillings. They just gave me a quote for composites which blend in with your teeth color but are more expensive and less durable than amalgam. Both dentist and hygenist were very friendly and answered all questions well. I didn't feel rushed. You also get to watch Netflix show of your choice during your x-rays and cleaning which is a nice touch. Front desk staff was also very nice and moved things quickly. You can check in and fill out all your info on the zocdoc app before you get there which was nice. I was maybe waiting for 10 minutes before i got in to start x-rays. Waiting area and everywhere else were clean and tidy.
