Dr. Hakim is the best in Louisville. If not the entire state! After years of dental nightmares (seriously I hate going in, even for a cleaning) and multiple dentists over the years I finally feel like I've found a dentist I can trust. Dr. Hakim is not only professional she's changed the way I think about Doctors. She takes her skills to next level and always makes sure every procedure whether small or large is done to the utmost perfection. I've not only recommended my family but my friends to s

We needed to get a new dentist and found Dr. Hakim on google. Sure enough after our 1st visit we were pleasantly surprised of the cleanliness, confidence, and professional service. On my second visit I had a 5 y/o with me whom I was babysitting (he was not a patient) and Dr. Hakim was exceptionally attentive and even had a selection of movies for him to watch while I was being seen. At the end of our visit we both left with new toothbrushes, the kid still talks about it :)

in Louisville, KY |
I had a wonderful experience at Dr. Hakim's office. She is one of the kindest dentist that I've met. She genuinely cares about her patients. She will always make you feel like you are her top priority when you're there. I would highly recommend her to any family or friend because I know they would be in good hands while under her care. She made sure I knew what was going on at all times during my procedure. Dr. Hakim made me smile again with the crown she replaced on my front tooth.
in Louisville, KY |
Dr. Hakim installed 2 crowns that fit perfectly. In the past I've had to return to other dentists to modify a new crown, but these worked perfectly from the start.
in Louisville |
Dr. Hakim was pleasant and professional. Eager to get down to business and fix my teeth. She was willing to work with my busy schedule. She works quickly and precisely and was in tune with my comfort level during the entire visit.

Dr. Hakim takes care of my wife and myself and she has done an outstanding job with every service provided. She has corrected issues from past procedures performed when we lived out of state and when she performs procedures, they are the most seamless and pleasant I have ever experienced. Her staff is professional, friendly and inviting and Dr. Hakim is always a pleasure to interact with. I couldn't be more pleased!
in Louisville, KY |
As a physician who always tries to do as much for my Patients as possible, I can be a tough critic of health care providers who don't appear to be doing the same for their Patients. However, I must say, all of my expectations have been exceeded by Dr. Hakim. Her oral health fund of knowledge and procedural technique were excellent. Most effective and tolerable local anesthetic injection I have ever had. Wonderful attention to detail. Overall, excellent Dentist.
Louisville, KY |
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.
in Louisville, KY |
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.
in Louisville, KY |
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.
in Louisville, KY |
She's amazing! Very precise at what she does and will make sure you leave her with a beautiful smile. I would highly recommend her to anyone.

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.
