What a fantastic dentist! She came in an hour early to take care of my three fillings because I am leaving on a two months trip out of the country and her schedule was full already. She completed the work inthe time she allowed, and as before - have been the most friendly and professional dentist I ever met, despite having to drive to work early while she has a cold. Definitely a five-star dentist!

Very professional and nice! Before we even started she asked what my goals were in regards to my teeth. Told her I wanted a straighter smile and she went over the options and what she thought would be the best route to take suited for me. Very knowledgeable

Having teeth aches and many other issues, I must have three root canals and fillings very quickly because, in less than a month, I am leaving the country on a 2 months adventure. I selected Dr. Ty based on her fantasticYelp reviews. She responded in person and quickly and set up a special time to see me, and referred me to a root canal specialist whose office staff also acted quickly. Dr. Tye understood my issues and provided a simple and quick time frame to resolve my immediate needs. Dr. Ty is a true Gem and a fantastic person whom I highly recommend.

My wife, daughter and myself have all seen Dr. Muhusin within the last two months and each of us has been very happy with our appointments. I've already written a review for my daughter's appointment. This one is for my own.Dr. Muhusin is very warm and friendly, as is her office. Her demeanor puts you immediately at ease. In addition to being very knowledgeable and helpful with any questions I had, her easygoing manner made me feel as though a friend, and not a doctor, was giving me a checkup and cleaning. I highly recommend Dr. Muhusin for the whole family.

Dr. Muhusin saw my five-year-old daughter who hadn't seen a dentist in about a year. Dr. Muhusin made my daughter feel very comfortable and is clearly very good with kids. She was able to perform an entire cleaning without the leastsign of discomfort from my daughter. Dr. Muhusin was very personable and kind, and her office very welcoming. I'll be seeing her soon myself and am looking forward to my visit. I highly recommend Dr. Muhusin for the whole family.

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!

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!

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 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.
