My husband and I had both had several bad experiences with some local dentists. Then I found Dr. Habib and her wonderful staff! She is thorough, kind and has handled many dental situations for myself and my husband - from regular cleanings to implants and wisdom tooth removal. I trust her and her associates because they have come through for us so often. I recommend her office to everyone!

I have never been fond of trips to the dentist but it is always a pleasure going to Dr. Habib's office. She is very thorough and pleasant. The front office staff is good too.. Had a great experience having Blanca - one of their hygienists - clean my teeth. I highly recommend them. Oh ... the last dentist I went to told me I had seven cavities. When I went ddto Dr. Habib she told me that I had one cavity and needed a root canal.

Everyone there, from the reception desk to Dr. Habib to the hygienists and assistants, are pleasant, professional, and reassuring.

My experience with Dr. Habib was wonderful. I was seen on my appointment time and the reception staff was wonderful. I received great news from the doctor, as I was expecting much worse news. I am grateful to South Palm Dental and the staff for their kindness and professionalism.
Boynton Beach, FL |
Being 88 years old and not having been to a dentist in several years I was a bit nervous. However the visit went well and Dr Habib was very good at explaining what was necessary. I feel very comfortable with the dental plan she came up for me and the price was reasonable. I would highly recommend her to all friends and family.
in Boynton Beach, FL |
It was over 5 years since I have been to the dentist. I was fearful as to what had to be done. To my surprise Dr. Habib was very assuring that I didn't have to get full dentures. Her chairside manner was very nice. I like her very much & would recommend her to my family & friend

All I've experienced so far was a consultation. She was easy to talk with, listened to my concerns and made suggestions that were conservative and doable.

i have had a lot of dental work done in my lifetime. A lot of it was not good, and I sometimes received bad advice and treatment. However, with Dr. Habib, I have every confidence in her care and advice. Best dentist I've ever had! AND she's so nice!

Overall she has a great staff, flexible hours, and provides unmatched service. I took a ton of cards during my last visit to give to friends and family.

I was very happy with the results of my two visits with Dr. Habib. I showed up a little early and was escorted into the exam room immediately. Dr. Habib kept me informed of what she was doing and answered all my questions. Excellent service. The Dental Assistants were exceptional as well.

Honesty, respect and kindness. Thank you.
in West Palm Beach, FL |
Called a few weeks took 10 minutes to schedule 2 appointments. I needed a cleaning and had a toothache at the time. My toothache is now gone and i cancelled the first appointment. I was then advised 2 days later that my cleaning had been cancelled and I would have to reschedule b/c the doctor needs to see me first. Now I have to wait a month and half for a cleaning? no thank you.
in West Palm Beach, FL |
Wonderful experience - great atmosphere for kids. Staff took the time to accommodate nerves and explain everything to my 3 year old!
in Lake Worth, FL |
