I cannot even begin to explain how amazing my dental experience has been with Dr. Larijani. I wish I could post a picture of my new smile. I can say I have never felt so in control, so completely informed and supported during my dental health journey.

Dr. Larijani provides excellent care and attention to detail for every appointment I've had which included crown work and regular cleanings. I've even fallen asleep during the crown replacement she did and felt very little pain afterwards. My teeth feel like they've had a spa treatment when I get them cleaned and they are protected with the topical flouride treatment too. I highly recommend her if you're looking for a new dentist.

Over the years I've been going to her she has been able to make my experience at the dentist much more pleasant. Now I don't dread going to the dentist because of her calm and effective approach to treating her patients.

I've been going to Dr. Larijani for 4 years now and always appreciate how communicative she is, how well she explains things, the constant tips and advice for prevention, and the careful attention to my teeth and dental hygiene. I've never been uncomfortable or felt pain (even though this is a dentist!). Almost all of my visits are extremely seamless (15-20 visits now)

I read previous reviews and decided to go to Dr. Larijani. I was not disapointed! I love her attention to detail and how she explains everything before doing anything. I would definitely rate her 10 stars!

Dr. Larijani is an excellent dentist. We have been her patients for over 19 years now. She really takes the time to explain all dental procedures, which is greatly appreciated. She & her team all have professional and naturally lovely personalities. The office is located conveniently in Bethesda with public parking garage across the street. Definitely recommend visiting Bethesda Dental Health!

Dr. Larijani works individually with each patient to provide detailed and compassionate care. She has somewhat emphasized cosmetic dentistry. She will definitely keep your teeth healthy and strong, and she uses evidence-based approaches to dentistry and standards of care. Dr. Larijani and her staff are very professional, helpful, and friendly. The office is beautiful, too, and there's never a long wait.

I have been a patient of Dr. Larigani for close to 20 years, and there has not been one dentist in my past that comes close to her dedication and work ethic she demonstrates on each of my visits. Most people "dread" going to the dentist, with Dr. Larigani it is different, I totally enjoy my experience. She always takes the time to know her patients, makes you feel comfortable. This is one quality that is not taught, but one that makes her the best dentist I have ever visited.

I cannot comment on her work because I only got a cleaning but about my general experience: THE WORST EVER! Dr. Larijani and her only staff, Claudia will do anything to just charge you for nothing! They overcharged me on the co-pays and confiscated my money so that they receive the payments from my insurance. And although my insurance is confirming that their payments to the dentist have been made and the check was cashed on 5/23, the dental office is denying it and refuses to return my money!

Dr. Larijani was very professional and informative. She really seemed to know what she was talking about. The best thing about her is that she actually gave me options about treatments and how to proceed. Furthermore, she actually lent thought to how and when I should receive her services in order to maximize my dental insurance coverage. Honestly the worst part going to the dentist is receiving a huge bill later when you mistaken trust the dental insurance to cover the costs.

We were among Dr. Larijani's first patients and would not consider seeing another dentist. In fact, we now travel from Pennsylvania to see her. Not only is she an outstanding practitioner, her staff is friendly, warm, caring and competent. The office environment reflects the highest of professional standards. We always feel in good hands.

I sent an inquiry for an appointment and the staff followed up a few times to get me in, even after I failed to follow up. The follow up was not pushy or overly persistent, which I appreciated. My appointment went exceedingly well. All of the staff are great, from the front desk young lady to Dr. Larijani and her hygienist/assistant. The entrance to the suite is a little odd but if you read the instructions they provide with your appointment confirmation, you'll find it with no problem.

Dr Larijani is a great. She is working well and closely with my orthodontist and periodontist to obtain a comprehensive treatment plan, like no other dentist I have visited before. The office is clean and I never have to wait for my appointment. Dr Larijani returns my calls quickly and takes time to answer all of my questions. I update her front desk staff of my appointments with my ortho and the info is always relayed accurately and quickly to Dr Larijani. I strongly recommend Dr Larijani!!
