    extremely friendly staff! Automatic billing and free parking were a huge plus. Extra measures are being taking during COVID-19, and everything is very safe and clean. The appointment itself was thorough ad enjoyable - the TV on the ceiling makes all the difference!

    My visit was positive, the X-rays taken were comprehensive and more high tech than I was used to at my old dentist. The dentist made sure to answer all of my questions. The hygienist and admin staff were friendly and helped make sure my treatments will be covered by insurance before they're booked. Overall I am very happy I chose Smile Design.

    I hadn't been to the dentist in 4 years and have horrible anxiety when it comes to doctors, dentists and all the important yearly check ups (of course). Diana helped me feel extremely comfortable, explained everything in detail so I knew exactly what to expect and constantly asked how I was doing which I appreciated so much. I booked my next appointment and couldn't be happier with the treatment I received.

    I got an appointment easily and for the following week. Brenda greeted my warmly and was wonderful. I interacted with 3 other staff: Jenny for xrays, Dr. Hind for consultation and Diane for cleaning and they were all terrific. There IS free parking behind the building! Overall I was extremely pleased with the experience and I generally don't enjoy or look forward to dental appointments. Highly recommended!

The actual visit with the dentist was quick, but because I didn’t have any issues with my teeth, that was fine with me. Will definitely be going back to this office for future visits.

    I felt very safe and was in good hands with Dr. Shawkat. The Hygenist was an angel and I felt prioritized as a patient. The receptionist, Brenda, was also very sweet and so helpful. Along with the convenient location and beautiful and inviting atmosphere of Smile Design Dental Care, I would highly recommend going here for a top-notch experience and treatment.

The assistant was very kind and did a great job cleaning my teeth, she really cared about every detail and health of my teeth. Dr. Safa made sure that I knew all of the details of my teeth and told me what needed to be done, she offered me multiple options to make sure Iam completely comfortable when it comes time for my next check-up. All-in-all I had a great experience back at the dentist!!

    The whole process was great. I appreciated how much care the hygienist took while cleaning my teeth and the dentist was very thorough in his exam. He also checked my strength of my facial muscles and tested for sensitivity. It was very comprehensive and I felt that my complete health was being considered rather than them just cleaning my teeth. I would highly recommend them. Special bonus for me is they are 5 minutes from my house and Opencare connected me with a great dentist. I'm so happy because it's one of the things I've avoided dealing with after moving.

    Great! I was greeted kindly and all the supportive staff were amazing and patient even through nerves and a small, nightmare mouth. Dr Shawkat was kind, very calm and concentrated. I feel she took the time to really look at each problem area even though I was the last appointment of the night. I do wish I had more of a chance to discuss the action plan with her and what actions were required of me to move forward with referrals and treatment before she left for the night. Overall good experience. Fast, knowledgeable service with very little wait time. Great location and office!
