On Oct 5, I had an appointment with another dentist but the receptionist was busy talking on the phone so I walked away about 2 blocks and found Allure Dental.. made an appt for Oct 11, to take x-rays, walked in staff was nice - Dr was very professional as well as nice. Didn’t expect itI actually ended up getting some of the dental work done I initially had been needing to complete. I’m sitting in the dental chair writing this review as the surgery has been completed. So far so great!!!

Dr. Afar was extremely professional and friendly. I was extremely nervous about having my first periodontal surgery. Dr. Afar and his staff worked in the most friendly and professional manner to ease my anxiety and to make the experience and pleasant as any dental surgery could be.

My tooth broke last night. NoHo was able to squeeze me in. This is the second time he pulls my tooth. I'll be back for my implant in 3 months

I couldn't be more pleased with Doctor Afar and his staff. He truly gets what being a professional is all about. I visited for an extraction of my cracked tooth, an implant and crown. Everything went smoothly from start to finish, with negligible discomfort. I knew I was in good hands all along. His staff is terrific as well. I give my highest recommendation accordingly.

Dr Bajar is a periodontal expert as well as a dentist so he can see above and below. For this he can truly save teeth by working on the bone.I am lucky that I found my way to him.
