Verified Patient Reviews
As always, he is kind, patient and listens to the patient's concerns and fears.
He was very kind and dealt with my situation amazingly.
Great dentist. Every time I go to Dr. Sawaqed, I feel that I am provided with a thorough checkup and am kept in the loop about what's happening. I'd definitely recommend him.
Wonderful! Cannot wait to come back in 6 months!!!!
Doctor Tariq is not only a great dentist, but a great person. I highly recommend him and his practice. Robin, helped me greatly with the financials. This practice always exceeds my expectations.
this is the first time I have been to a dentist and felt relaxed and confident about the work being done on me. just an amazing place to go for any kind of dental work
Dr. Salazar and staff was so concerned about my well being. He was patient , courteous and understanding of my fear. He explained every step and kept asking me if I was alright. He is the best dentists I have ever been to.
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 the office 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.
Dr and DH were good! Dental assistant and office staff are more of a 3 star. Overall, I will use them again.
Awesome first visit. The staff was able to help me with insurance questions I had, as well as send me x-rays right to my email. Everyone was very friendly
No problems very informative
I was a little nervous, then when getting my crown I almost fell asleep in the dentist chair, that's how comfortable and relaxed I was. He's a fantastic dentist and his staff are awesome!
Very kind Doctor Tariq and very compassionate I am very happy. I visited with my daughter and he checked both of us and we will return. Friendly staff and the nurses were very nice. Thank you doctor and nurses we appreciate people like you
Good dental experience! Understanding staff!
Dr. Sawaqed offered to and then performed the cleaning himself. Which has NEVER happened to me with my previous dentists. 5/5!
Great Doctor would recommend to anyone. I'll be coming back.
Everyone of the staff members and the dentist treated me very very sweet and even though I hadn't been to the dentist in a while to get a cleaning they took extra time to assure that my teeth were taken care of.
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 just need 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 almost no 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.
He was awesome i had 8 teeth pulled no pain not once and quick i would yell other people how he is
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; my experience 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.
They may not have TV's everywhere and all the glamor, but the doctor was so personable and took great care of me! It was a very pleasant experience!
Great staff! Smaller office, but very convenient with appointment times and availability. They seem to really care about you and not just trying to hurry people in and out. Highly recommended!
It was a positive experience and as a new patient, everyone was awesome and respectful of my privacy. Never been on Medicaid and it was hard on me at my age but they treated me so well and confidentially answered my questions while I the waiting/reception area.
The staff was very friendly. I came into the office a bit early, but was taken back right away. Dr. Tariq was friendly, quick and efficient. I don't really like going to the dentist, but this experience was a painless! Thank you.
I am very pleased with this dentist and the entire staff. I live in the mountains and everyone tells me there are very good dentists up here. I tell them I am very satisfied with Tariq Sawaqed and won't switch!
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 and I 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 most comfortable. 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!
Very nice Dentist and staff. Also prompt with appointment scheduling and seeing you on time.
Thank you so much for the wonderful care you've taken with me. I can not say how much I appreciate your help in getting my teeth issues handled. But more it was the constant checking that I was okay and the way you listened that has impressed me. Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!
It was a great visit! Everyone in the office is so professional and Dr. Sawaqed is just awesome! I would and will recommended him to to my friends and family. Finally found a great dentist! They even called me later in the evening to see how I was feeling.
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.
He is very professional as well as friendly. He always explains things in simple terms, so that you actually understand what is being done.
Very nice experience
Well for the extractions I had to have done. ..Dr.Sawaqed was very patient and heplful.
I felt that Doc Tariq Sawaqed and his staff were easy to communicate with, knowledgable, and amicable. They did not waste time, and the facility was clean and sanitary. It was an unpretentious place and welcoming.
Very kind, great job!
I had an appointment for filling, but they did not block enough time to do the work and asked me to come back another day due to the shot did not work. It is not right?!
It was great. Very gentle and he cares about your comfort.
The front office staff and Dental Assistant are friendly and I like the way they use your name when communicating with you as if they remember you from your last visit.
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 is unbelievably 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.
This was our first time. The whole staff were great working with my kids!
Better then other places I have been. I felt welcomed as soon as I walk in the door until I walked out. Nice and caring.
My appointment went well.
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 mend it 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.
I really like him & Tiffany. But actually I like the whole staff. I get treated like I'm special, & that makes me happy.
Dr Tariq was out sick but the replacement Dr was excellent!
very friendly and professional. I'll be going back
Office personnel and Dentist were extremely nice, friendly and helpful from the time I arrived till the time I left the office.
The receptionist staff was friendly, knowledgeable, and very up front about prices and what my options were. The techs were professional yet personable and definitely knew what they were doing. Doctor Sawaqed made me feel like he cared about me as a patient, and not as a client, gave great, personalized advice on dental care and procedures recommended for me, and did exactly what I expected coming into the appointment. I've had dentists pile on a bunch of other unnecessary procedures and he gave me exactly the care I needed. My experience was fantastic and I can't recommend this place enough!! I love this office and will definitely be coming back!
It was a great experience. My family has found a new dentist
I'm very grateful for all that Mr. Sawaqed and his staff did for me today. They were all very amazing and the work they did is wonderful. Thank you so much!!
They were quick and efficient. Very friendly and accommodating.
Very competent and friendly staff.
He's a good doctor I know, because he is very busy. I had 10 cavities filled, I think there was an 11th one, but I suffered no pain after the anesthesia wore off. I do recommend this dentist to anyone!
Appointment started on time and staff and assistant couldn't have been friendlier. Dr. Tariq was very personable and friendly as well.
Very professional.whole staff was professional, helpful, and nice.
I have not seen a dentist in over 2 years. They all treated me great from the receptionist, to the dental assistant, to the dentist. A through and through team. Great teeth cleaning, good recommendations for further preventive steps, and took care of 2 fillings which included a chipped tooth that has been in my mouth for over two years. I thought the chipped tooth could not be fixed because of where it was and where my retainer was,, but it looks amazing. Thanks everyone. Will see you in 6 months.
Great place and great people.
Excellent dentist and office staff! Very professional yet friendly. Felt comfortable and at ease and I normally hate going to the dentist!!!
2 cavities filled, no pain whatsoever, walked out less than 30 minutes after walking in - nice!
Great doc, great staff!
I have such a fear of going to the dentist but the entire staff is outstanding! Doc explains everything that needs to be done and does his work with such care. My dentist fears are over. :)
His staff and himself were professional and concerned about my health. I will continue to go to his office..
Excellent dentist. Would recommend.
I would highly recommend him and his office. Very professional, clean and I felt comfortable.
He and his staff were very friendly and kind. The consultation was quick and clearly explained. They seemed knowledgeable and easily answered all my questions.
I absolutely would recommend Dr. Sawaqed's office!! He and his staff were all welcoming, polite, professional, and on time (all things I look for in a Dentist). I had to changed Dentists since my insurance changed, and I was dreading finding a new one. I went to Dr. Sawaqed's office after reviewing a number of Dentists. I knew the moment I called and talked to Linda that she was on top of her job (she's the office manager). I felt confident that my records and insurance claims will be handled professionally by her. When I arrived to my appointment Linda was so welcoming, and they saw me right on time. Tiffany started my appointment with me and did the xrays. She was also very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Sawaqed immediately came in after the xrays and introduced himself and did the exam - this is not something I have ever experienced with a Dentist. Often I would meet 2-3 of his staff and the dentist would come in at the very end after I had to wait forever...but not here! My interactions with Dr. Sawaqed were cordial and made the appointment go quickly without pain or anxiety for me. Overall, the office is clean and comfortable. They use new technology including digital xrays and files. Obviously, I had a very good experience. I hope you do too!
The staff at this office are all courteous and friendly! Dr. Tariq was upfront about what could be done with my broken tooth and let me make an informed desicion. Overall a great experience.
Quality painless work!
