    First time going to the dentist in a few years and I was worried, but they were professional and thorough, explained everything in detail, and answered all of my questions. Overall, I've found a new dentist I'm comfortable with!

    Appointment was on time and covid policies were followed. After xrays the dentist looked at my teeth, I was given a treatment plan and all costs were laid out beforehand.

    Dr. Khan and the staff were very friendly and straightforward, and the office had an inviting atmosphere. They explained everything as they were doing it and paid close attention to possible pain or discomfort during the cleaning and check-up. There was none of the awkward small talk typically associated with dentists--everything was kind and professional!

    My experience was as good as a dentist visit could be! :) The office was modern, clean, and well lit. The anxiety of a dentist appointment was lessened with Netflix playing as a distraction above each chair.

    I felt very welcome and comfortable. They accommodated our late arrival due to inclement weather which really showed their understanding and desire to make everything work to the best of their ability. The dentist explained everything very well and went over her thoughts using images. The cleaning was well done and caused less discomfort than I expected. I would highly recommend this location

    Hadn’t had a dentist appointment in years, staff was knowledgeable and it was a pleasant experience. They took my insurance and the floundering filling was cheap. Already have an appointment to get Some cavities fixed as well.

    From the Front-desk staff -- very knowledgeable, helpful and cheerful...she even got up to open the door for me, I had a hand full :) The Dental Assistant was very nice, respectful, careful (with xray) and cheerful. The Hygienist - ask good question what's bothers me during cleaning...she was very thorough in cleaning my mouth/teeth, very nice and respectful. Dr. Khan - She asked good questions, review in details, explained the xray result and the physical condition of my teeth, bite, etc. She was amazing! no wonder she has a great team!

    Great office. Their default on the TV is The Office. Staff are friendly and didn't lecture me or shame me for being WELL overdue for an appointment - and this might have been my best dental experience ever. They also went over my x-rays with me on the TV and it was a really good experience that left me knowing more about my oral health and informed about my options for dental care. As a side note, I'm trans. Staff were excellent about not deadnaming me and misgendering me- this is huge when a provider and their staff make a point to respect names and pronouns to earn our trust. Trans or not, expect to be respected and treated with care at NK Dental.

The dentist herself went over my xrays and gave her recommendation for a treatment plan. All things considered, i was in and out efficiently.

    This office was very inviting! I'm not a fan of the dentist because of the sounds, so I appreciated that there was a TV on playing netflix to help distract me. Each person who took care of me was kind and explained everything that was happening. The doctor showed me my xrays and pictures and outlined a treatment plan for me, and was considerate of the heavy cost and broke it down into easier portions.

    What a great experience! I usually get really nervous going to the dentist, but the staff was SO friendly... on top of that, they gave me sunglasses to shield my eyes from the blinding light... and The Office playing while I got my teeth cleaned. PLUS the water pick was much more comfortable than the typical scraping technique I am used to. Thanks, NK Family Dental!

    I hadn’t been to the dentist in 18 years due to some traumatic painful experiences with it as a child. Opencare reviews helped me pick NK Dental and I’m glad I did. Everyone was so nice and helped me through my cleaning even though I’m sure I didn’t make it easy on them what with my shaking and sweating.
