The entire experience with Dr. Muhusin was fantastic. It is a one-woman operation, and she only sees one patient at a time, so as soon as I had the initial paperwork filled out I was seen right away. The office issmall but clean, and the hygiene, as far as I could tell, was top-notch. I had not been to the dentist in years, but Dr. Muhusin put me at ease and and made me feel quite comfortable. She had some '80s hits playing in the background, and the view from the chair looked out a window over the office park. The actual cleaning was of course physically uncomfortable since I had years of plaque buildup, but it was relatively painless and quick. I feel like I have found a dentist that I can go back to for years to come. I highly recommend Dr. Muhusin!

The consultation was thorough and sensitive to my personal concerns. And the procedure was surprisingly painless. Dr. M had small hands, provided dark glasses, and pleasantly met my expectations. Well done, thanks.

It was pleasant visit. Tykeisha seems to know what she's doing. I had to wait a bit because she had a patient with an emergency. Since this was my first visit, it's a little hard to give any kind of real evaluation.

Dr. Muhusin was a great choice for our family. Our daughter just turned 3 and unfortunately got her 1st cavity. We didn't like the idea of putting her under anesthesia so we decided to go the "traditional" route, shot and all.We were nervous that our daughter was going to freak out, but Dr. Muhusin's bedside manner with kids is amazing, and quickly put our little princess at ease. Her process was also extremely efficient and minimized the amount of chair time. When she was done our daughter gave Dr. Muhusin a high-5 and basically skipped out the office. It couldn't have gone any better in our opinion! This office is also great about appointment times, we are always seen right away and the environment is relaxing for the whole family!

This was only my first visit, but based on it, I've already made my next cleaning appointment. Dr. Muhusin was very thorough in the exam and gave me a good, careful cleaning. She's really easy to talk with, and took thetime to ask, listen and explain. Just what I was looking for.

My work recently changed insurance providers so I was in the unfortunate position of needing a new dentist. I found Dr. Muhusin via Yelp and Zodoc and made an appointment. It was just one visit, but I found her to befriendly, personable, knowledgeable, with a gentle touch. I'll be sending my husband to her shortly! We may have found our new dentist. :)

I really enjoyed my visit with Dr. Tykeisha. Very professional and gives you the best advice on how to care for your teeth and even suggests a regimen. While she cleans your teeth she continuously asks if your okay and alsomakes sure your comfortable. I would recommend her to anyone she really makes sure your visit is the best.

I can't say enough about the knowledge and professionalism of Dr. Muhusin. She thoroughly investigated my problem. Even though I had never been to her before, she went out of her way to make sure that I was taken care ofproperly. Being out of town and only visiting, it was by chance that I chose Dr. Muhusin and I am so glad I did. My daughter and her family just moved here, and I will definitely be recommending her for their family dentist. I am so grateful that she was able to fit me into her schedule. I can't thank her enough.
