Exceeded my expectations in several areas. Dr. Desai is not only very knowledgeable but she also has great interpersonal skills. She addressed all my concerns, answered all my questions, and explained in detail her findings and recommendations. I did not feel rushed whatsoever. I also have to give credit to her office staff who were courteous, friendly, and extremely helpful. Her secretary was able to schedule me on short notice; her dental hygienist did a terrific job and was a lovely person; a

Without having insurance that is out of network mean I may or may not get paid back for services. I'm not sure I can afford those crowns & filling in the amount of like over $1,800.00 for all that, I'm going to have to find someone a lot cheaper than $1,800...

The initial visit went very well with an expert exam and Hygiene procedure by Joyce. Time allowed for the cleaning and x-rays was perfect not rushed into a 40 minute time slot like other offices. The doctor reviewed the findings and was very precise in the explanation of treatment.

I have seen Dr. Desai twice, once for a check-up and once to replace a filling. She explained things clearly and was organized and gentle. The filling was in a back tooth, so it took quite a while to get the old material out and replace it. But the local anesthetic was effective and the procedure was not painful. I didn't have any pain after I left the office, even after the Novocaine wore off. My bite is the same - Dr. Desai was especially careful to check on that before she finished.

Dr. Desai is hands down the greatest dentist or doctor I've ever been a patient of. She makes an unpleasant experience feel like a breeze. She is always calm, cool and collected and a pleasure to be around. I started invisalign treatment with her about 5 months ago and her and her team have made the process so easy and simple. As somebody who previously *hated* the dentist, she has turned this attitude around. I cannot recommend Dr. Desai enough.
