Darioush (Dan) Ashouripour,
Reception was very friendly and helpful right off the bat. The Dental Hygienist was gentle, but thorough, with my cleaning and gave me some good tips on how to better brush and floss. Dr. Ashouripour has wonderful bedside manner. He put me at ease and genuinely seemed to care that I understood everything. I'm very grateful to have found him!
She was very through and explained my options. I'm overly anxious and she was very patient with me. She also treated my son and he had a wonderful experience. Her staff is knowledgeable and very friendly. I would highly recommend her practice.
Dr. Aflatooni was very friendly and professional. If you get anxious before or during any dental procedure I would recommend him. What I loved about him was he does make sure that you are absolutely pain free during procedure. I do highly recommend him.
What is a Dentist?
A dentist is a practitioner who treats various disorders of the teeth and mouth, including tooth decay and gum disease. Treatment can involve fillings, crowns, bridges, dentures, tooth removal, scaling, and root canals. Dentists help prevent disease through regular checkups and by encouraging personal dental care (like brushing and flossing). All dentists take four years of undergraduate studies, followed by four years of dental school, to become either a Doctor of Dental Surgery (DDS) or Doctor of Dental Medicine (DDM).
