SMAD is a very friendly positive professional office Dr Hakim is the best in her field and treats patients like family. She was always so kind and welcoming. Michelangelo of teeth.

Dr. Hakim identified a significant issue which another dentist had missed. This issue is visible on the x-ray from a year ago and yet he never brought it to my attention. I just assumed he knew what he was doing, but Dr. Hakim' s added training makes a huge difference! I also appreciate her careful attention to my chronic illness and the way her treatment could effect it.

Dr. Hakim's office requires that as a new patient you get your x-rays done first, and then come in for a cleaning another day. I went in to get my x-rays taken care of and was greeted by Dr. Hakim like I had been a patient for years. Her hygienist was also really friendly and easy to talk to. I felt like she took her time while examining my gums, and made sure I had no questions before I left. The service was so great for x-rays that I can't wait to get my teeth cleaned.
When i moved to Louisville, I needed a dentist because I had some jaw pain. I googled best dentist in louisville, and dr. Hakim came up. I have not looked back since. It turns out I was grinding my teeth for years without knowing. She fixed my grinding problem and I got the best night sleep I had in years. I no longer get headaches nor experience any jaw tightness. Best dentist I have ever been too, hands down.

I came to Dr Hakim with some extensive dental needs due to the work of a prior dentist. She has been wonderful! Pain free. Outstanding quality of work. Made me feel very at ease and confident in her professional skills. I would, and have, been recommending her to friends in Louisville. It is rare to find a dentist who is great with technical and aesthetic dentistry, complex medical dentistry and who has a terrific professional and caring approach to her patients.

I LOVED my experience at this practice. Dr. Hakim is amazing, smart, and very kind. My wait time was less than a few minutes and I was welcomed by the warm staff and ambiance. Dr. Hakim went over my treatment plan in detail and explained everything to me. This practice really cares about their patients and goes above and beyond the norm. Would definitely recommend to my friends and family!
