Efficient and timely. Referred me to a great gum specialist when I needed some gum work.
this is not my first time at Dr. Ghafari's office, she has done several sensitive dental work, everything has been done very smoothly as always, that is why I keep coming for more dental work, she is very careful about what you feel and how the operation is moving forward. it's a good feeling to see her in total control, I am so very happy that I have found her and keep coming back. Thanks Doctor.

As root canals can be an ordeal, Dr. Ghafari has made the experience an easy one. She made sure that I felt comfortable through the process and took time to explain the procedure and the pricing.
Great and thumb up.
Professional and Thorough. Ensure that you are relaxed prior to procedure.
My experience with dr. Ghafari has always been great. Clean office, great staff and always leave with shiny teeth. Absolutely recommend her if you are looking for a new doctor.
Took me right in ahead of schedule, and Dr. Ghafari is great about starting on time (a pet peeve of mine which I have no issues with here). Very professional and efficient experience. Great seat-side manner. Great experience all around!
Dr. Ghafari did a 6-month check and cleaned my teeth. It was a pleasant experience. I was seen at the time of my appointment. I am planning to return in 6 months to continue receiving excellent dental care in her practice.
When its hard to feel at ease with a Dentist, Dr. Ghafari gives you all the comfort and ease when you are seating at her chair. She has been my family and personal dentist for past 15 years and I could have not been happier to have known her. Strongly recommended to anyone looking for new Dentist in town or thinking about chaining their current Dentist.
She has done a lot of repairs, and always does a great job. She helped me get a gum graft, which worked very well. I highly recommend her.
Very good people skills.

I have never felt very comfortable at dentists, but Dr Chitra makes it feel like a walk in the park. I assure you that you will be in good hands ant this dentistry.
Always a great experience. Very caring dentist
Fantastic. To the point. Qualified and trustworthy.
Dr. Ghafari is always welcoming with a warm smile and manner. She employs all the latest technology and techniques to give the best quality service. Her office is centrally located, bright, and streamlined. She is by far the best dentist we have been to. Recently moved to Virginia and travel back to Gaithersburg, she is that good.
Doctor Ghafari is always very patient and listens to my concerns and answers my questions. Every time I see her, whether it's for cleaning for other treatment, she works efficiently and always makes sure I am comfortable. She makes the experience of visiting a dentist no longer scary and actually pleasant for me!
So, I'm one of those people that have to spend a lot of time with dentists. I was born with no enamel on any of my teeth, so over the years I've been in many dentists chairs, and I've learned to tell who the keepers are. Dr. Ghafari is keeper. She excels at communicating with her patients, and making the best of a situation when people come to her in pain, etc. She has a very clean office, an good staff, and the latest equipment. Additionally, she will not hesitate ...
Dr. Ghafari's skill and experience inspire great confidence which makes my dental appointments very comfortable. She never rushes through my appointments and gives me her full attention when I have questions regarding care and treatment. Dr. Ghafari is a serious professional with a great sense of humor; something I appreciate very much.

She is very patient axplains what needs to be done and the coast.
Dr. Ghafari has been great for our family. Our daughter was the first patient and after meeting Dr. Ghafari, I decided to schedule an appointment for myself. I was pleased and suggested my husband transfer to her. He eventually did and we are all happy

Dr. Ghafari is really nice, calming, and does a good job. I'd recommend her to anybody.
Dr. Chitra was very helpful 12 years ago when i had a tooth infection. She was very kind and professional and helped me out a lot, while other doctors just wanted my money. And that's why 12 years later there was only one dentist I would go see. Also communication is very good.
