Went to see Dr Samina. She was kind, listened to my issues. She did a root canal that did not hurt. It was an emergency and I had called them at 8PM and to my surprise my phone call was answered that late. I was seen next day. Thank you.

Dr. Kathawala is a very good dentists. She is very skilled and has a good personality. She did a good job of putting a crown on one of my bottom molars. Anthony at the front desk is very friendly and cooperative and willing to work with you on billing issues.

I saw Dr. Kathawala for a filling that had come out. I was in a hurry and she was able to fit me in quickly. She was professional and very gentle, and replaced the filling with no need for anesthesia, which I much prefer. I definitely plan on seeing her again, we like her so much I think we will choose her as our family dentist! The office is very clean and well organized, and the staff is very friendly.

I highly recommend Dr Samina Kathawala tshe is the BEST DENTIST I ever had. I need to do my front teeth. One tooth had a cavity and had the black cavity mark. The tooth on the right was chipped and had a crown which had a huge ugly bond. Dr. Kathawala cleaned the cavity (toward your right in the picture and on left put a beautiful extended veneer!!! I now have a beautig=ful smile and am excited to take many future pictures!!! Never I felt any pain the entire process. She has this "DENTAL VIBE" that you will not feel the pain with the needle when giving numbing agent and believe me when I say... I was so relaxed and even fall sleep during the procedure. She is very skillful, gentle and caring. The crew are friendly they treat you like a family. The place is easy to find, high tech and clean

Today I went to Dr.Samina Kathwala. She treated my teeth really good. Today she took one of my teeth out although I couldn't feel anything. My children are also very satisfied. They always come home saying that they didn't even feel anything. Dr.Samina is a very good dentist.

I have been visiting her for the past two years and honestly, I have no intention to change my dentist because of my trust in her. She listens patiently, is precise in her treatment, and provides the best treatment possible. I have not experienced any discomfort or issue after her treatment, to date.

Fortune is smiling upon you :-) Dr. Samina Kathawala is everything I want in a dentist. She is intelligent, thorough and confident in planning the future of my oral health. She will go over your procedure with a fine tooth comb! She is considerate in scheduling and accommodating appointments for quality time. Dr. Kathawala's technique is gentle and precise. During my coronation, she was a skilled sculptor. Her esthetics are well-proportioned and in perfect symmetry. Let Dr. Kathawala put a smile on your face and leave with a GLAD taste in you mouth :-)
