in Columbia, MD |
I recived great services with excellent attitude.
Chatfield, MN |
Dr. Navai has been taking care of our dental needs for quite a few years now. We have always had very good experiences for all work from the first visit (after having not visited a dentist for several years) to routine cleaning to more extensive crown work. He is personable, caring and gentle, and his staff is always friendly and efficient. We appreciate the reminders about scheduling our routine checkups too. We recently moved out of Maryland and I still schedule dental visits when I return.
in Philadelphia, PA |
Dr. Navai has been treating my family for over 15 years. We drive 2 hours to see Dr Navai! It's always a pleasant experience, no stress, no pain, and always efficient. You know you're in good hands and you feel it.

I wish everything in my life worked as smoothly and professionally as does Dr. Navai's dentistry.

Dr Navai is a kind, caring and thoughtful person who presents these qualities to the patient in his role as dentist. He is skilled and knowledgable in his profession. His personal and professional qualities surface when the treatment involves the possibility of pain. He is so careful to make sure the patient is never uncomfortable or in pain. He is the best dentist I have ever been to. He might be one the the best people that I know. I look forward to my visits to Dr. Navai.

Dr. Navai, and his entire staff have always provided the utmost professional dental care. I used to be terrified of going to the Dentist, but I have been going to his office for over 20 years, and my fears have disappeared.

As always, my experience with Dr. Navai was most satisfying. Both he and his hygienist were most pleasant and very thorough in their treatment. It is such a pleasure receiving this level of quality dental care.

If you live or work in or near Howard County, there is no finer professional organization to handle all of your family dental needs. They ARE the best!
in Ellicott City, MD |
My family has been seeing Dr. Navai for ten years or more. Dr. Navai is an excellent dentist! He is always gentle and caring. He explains what he's doing as he goes. The rest of his staff are also friendly and caring. Before finding Dr. Navai we were always nervous about going for our checkups and having dental work done. We don't mind going to Dr. Navai! Even when our daughters were young they looked forward to going to his dental office. I recommend him to everyone!
in Baltimore, MD |
I have trusted Dr. Navai for over 20 years. He has a very thoughtful approach. He always explains what a procedure involves, and gives his honest opinion of what should and should not be done. I can tell he takes what he does very seriously and treats us with the utmost care. I could not recommend him more.
