Auburn, WA |
I went there as a new patient as I was very impressed. This has been the best experience compared with the dentists I have been to in the past. For the first time I have had the hygienist spend quality time explaining home care and showing me before and after pictures. The cleaning and whitening treatment went great! Dr. Syeda is very pleasant and competent. They really care about their patients. Top Notch service.

Artisan Dental has provided dental care for me and my family. I had my wisdom tooth extraction and two crowns some here. Dr Syeda Bakhtawar and the staff were very knowledgeable and kind. The procedures went quick and with no discomfort. So far this has been my best dental experience as I have always been anxious and nervous at the dentist. I will continue to recommend Artisan Dental for superior dental care.

Dr Syeda Bakhtawar and her staff provide exceptional patient care! I was in pain and needed back tooth extraction. They got me in quickly, did assessment and got me in next day for procedure. It was painless! And everything was explained very well. They followed up with a call next day. I am waiting for my extraction site to heal and I am looking forward to implant placement by them I'm a few months. I trust them, they are most caring and professional.

I went to Artisan Dental for emergency work and they fit me right in. I work in downtown bellevue and they are walking distance from my office. I had an extraction of a tooth that broke at gum line and few fillings done by Dr Syeda Bakhtawar which was absolutely painless and comfortable. My cleaning with the hygienist Lora went great. Dr Syeda referred me to a great orthodontist as my bite issues were causing breakage of fillings and teeth over the years.
