Your trust is our top concern.

We strive to keep the reviews trustworthy, honest & fair.

We monitor all reviews to ensure they comply with our guidelines and don’t include personal information, profanity, libel, defamation, harassment, obscenity or fraud.

All reviews are confirmed and audited before publication, and community members have the ability to flag inappropriate content for further review by our team.

Doctors can not pay for good reviews, nor can they pay to have negative reviews removed.

Any reviews that are deemed fraudulent or violate our guidelines will be removed immediately.

My visit went well. The dental hygienist was professional and friendly. Always good to talk with Dr. Samaha and share stories. She has been my dentist for more than 30 years. The staff is friendly ad efficient. What's not to like?

I would never recommend Dr. Samaha! I am writing this review now after reading a review from one of her former patients that gave her 1 Star. Their story sounds almost identical to mine. I feel bad for not having written my review earlier. Maybe then I might have been able to save that patient from what I experienced. Initially you will be impressed with her and the office, only to learn she is only interested in your money. I visited her office for two years at which time my visits would have been covered through my insurance plan. Of course she required full payment up front and not just a deductible. Later only to discover nothing was ever filed. I was anxious to get some cosmetic work done, but it was never completed there. After my experience with her I just wanted out. In conclusion, an implant she started and I paid for had to be redone by an oral surgeon.

I wanted mercury fillings removed and was told (by her of course) that "no one else in the area did them correctly" Guess what, that is FALSE. There ARE other mercury free offices that DO following protocol and charge a FRACTION of the price that Dr S wanted to charge. At her office you will be greeted and treated like there is a genuine great concern for your overall health and be totally convinced by her that you're the most unhealthy patient , dental wise, they've ever seen. They'll then present you will a treatment plan for 20K PLUS and try to convince you it's absolutely a necessity. Ugh. I am so mad I fell for it. The reason this woman doesn't take insurance is because she would immediately raise red flags. I regret everything I had done in her office and *strongly* encourage you to run, not walk, to another dentist

It is difficult to be at ease in a dental environment. However the strides taken towards that end at PWDA have been most successful. The staff is engaging, personable, and most importantly competent. I feel more like I am visiting favorite family members than a medical practice. The best way to describe Dr. Samaha is as a healer who just happens to be a dentist; one with a ferocity for excellence and beauty. She gives each of her patients as much time as needed for the best possible outcome.

Throughout my ordeal of being mercury poisoned, I've met hundreds of folks with the same illness and they're blown off by the dysfunctional medical establishment and then abandoned by families who bought into the lie. It's a whole world I never had a clue about. They're killing themselves because no one believes them. I believe them and so do you. Meeting you & your revolutionary holistic healing has given me hope for the future of medicine and humanity in general. You literally saved my life.

I have been seeing Dr. Samaha for 33 years. Yesterday, she extracted a tooth beyond saving and put in a dental implant. It was far easier than what I was expecting. She and her staff were gracious and caring.The gave me Motrin and a protein shake at the beginning since we were going to be there awhile! They are a well orchestrated and professional team. Today, I have no pain or throbbing at all, thankfully! Dr. Samaha's fees are higher but one gets top care and advanced procedures.
