He was pretty good. One of his assistants was way to excited to poke at my teeth. I had to get a filling and I started crying because I'm terrified of the dentist. He sent in his receptionist to calm medown and he was nice enough about it. A little awkward. Id recommend him and this office though. Not a bad experience.

I filled out all the new patient info online and told the receptionist and I'm not sure if she couldn't or didn't know how to access them but I had to fill out the EXACT same questions on paper in theoffice just so my "signature" would be on their papers. I had to ask the student hygienist to change her gloves before polishing my teeth. She did but I don't think she understood why when it told her she touched 3-4 cabinets behind us looking for something and got down on the floor to plug the portable machine they hook the epitome the up to before trying to proceed to touching my mouth. Dr. Was super nice-I liked him! Prob won't go back though.

I am so glad that I found Dr. Sawage. The teeth I had left were really bad. He helped me get financial help so that I could get a bottom denture. I am so happy with my new denture. I justneed to be patient until everything heals. I used to go to Comfort dental, they told me I needed to see an oral surgeon to remove some teeth. Dr Sawage took care of all my needs.

Tiffany did a quick filling and I did not even need the shot! I hate the goop that makes me gag for a night guard fitting but she and doc Tarik were very careful and gentle so I did have almostno problem! I was surprised! Doc Tarik was caring of my need and financial situation and helped me go on a payment plan because I need the t m j help. Also Robin was very kind in my insurance and payments.

I Haven't seen a dentist since I left the Army over a year ago. I am beyond happy with my visit at Lakewood Dental of Colorado. From the minute I walked through the door till the moment I walked out; myexperience was great and the customer service, PHENOMENAL. Tiffany the dental assistant was sweet and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Sawaqed has very light hands and listens to his patients. Definitely sticking with him and will be referring him to every one.

I am so grateful for Dr. Tariq and his team! He is a very kind doctor. He is very smart and be cares a great deal for his patients. I have had some very negative dental experiences in the past andI found him genuinely courteous. He kept checking on me throughout my procedure "Are you doing okay? you're doing a great job, do you have any concerns?" We will definitely be back again. All the staff are very kind and I am so delighted that my mouth isn't such better shape!

Dr. Sawaqed was phenomenal! I have terrible anxiety and low pain tolerance and he was very understanding and had a lot of patience with me. Repeatedly asked if I was doing okay and adjusted whatever I needed to make me mostcomfortable. The assisting staff were also nice, understanding and great at their work. Definitely a step in the right direction for me after a previous traumatic experience from a different dentist. Thank you!

Attentive Doctor and staff. Everything explained in black and white. Very affordable. Dental visits are always traumatic for me and this one went as perfectly as it could go with a minimum of pain (the novacaine shot did hurt a bit). It also went FAST.

From day one I was given all my options for treatment up front. He let me know of the possibility of needing a root canal before we even started to fix my cavity so no surprises. His bed side manner isunbelievably kind hearted. His main goal seems to always be on the patient. He treats his staff extremely well so they are happy and allows for them to concentrate on the patient rather than drama in the office. I highly recommend him for all your dental needs.

The staff and doctor were wonderful. Great rapport with patient and other staff. The problems were that I was mis-scheduled, twice and for one appointment I wasn't phoned until I was driving into the parking lot. They did try to mendit with a free-teeth whitening, which although generous, was quite ineffective at whitening my teeth. The other concern was a cap I had replaced. It looks BAD. Fortunately it is in the back of my mouth, so it's not too obvious, but it still bothers me. Probably will not return.
