What People Say About Dr. Ammar Mekari, DDS
RecentHighestLowestMost Helpful

I went to Dr. Mekari with concerns of facial asymmetry, even lines, indentations, etc. I was nervous because I had never done any kind of fillers before. Dr. Mekari was extremely kind and helpful and educated me on all of my options. I appreciated that he answered questions and was not insistive, but rather encouraged me to take the time to think about it before scheduling an appointment. The day of my procedure, everything went well and I experienced minimal pain. Recovery was just as Dr. Mekari described with minimal bruising. I had a great experience here and would definitely recommend Dr. Mekari's expertise and the service of his staff to anyone.

A few days ago I entered the Doc' office writhing in pain. Without the use of anesthesia he adjusted the height of the tooth below it and freed me from the pain. Afterward he diligently studied the ex-rays and picked found a tiny anomaly above the bothersome tooth. Which is now on the agenda for remedy. Once again Dr. Mekari's expertise and high end professionalism proved to be unmatched by any and all my previous dentist. At 70 yrs old I've been to more than a few and see him as the best.

Yesterday was my first time in the office. I had a great experience all the way around. When I called I was able to get an appointment immediately. When I came to my appointment everybody was so friendly from the moment I walked in & all the way to the moment I checked out. I had no wait getting into the room and for the doctor. Dr Mekari is excellent. He was very thorough explaining every detail, very gentle, passionate, & answered all of my questions. Highly recommend

Dr. Mekari, is an awesome Dental Practitioner. His passion is definitely “Dentistry”. His staff is very professional. Your appointment time is your appointment time; meaning, there is no waiting period. He is very into his work. I would highly recommend him to my family and friends. I would also highly recommend him to a complete stranger. I’m very confident in his leadership and the dental work performs. I would definitely vote him as #1 Dentist Of The Year!

This guy is offensively late for every single appointment! The worst time manager! Make sure you have an ENTIRE day if you schedule with him.

The staff and dr were very nice and welcoming. They made sure I knew that I was important even though they were busy. They only complaint I would have is the wait time . However, my hygienist did say that they had had a couple of call ins from workers . All in all it was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend them

Dr. Mekari and his staff are second to none. Jan the hysgist is absolutely the best hygienist and her years of experience are seldom seen in dental offices. As a team, led by Dr. Mekari skills and knowledge a, patient can sit in the chair knowing they will have the best treatment in a least painful manner.
