Dr Qaqish and his staff really give the patient a sincere and personal touch. My husband needed urgent oral surgery and Dr Qaqish performed a consult and surgery on the same day! He was able to accommodate us despite his already busy schedule. We are very grateful for their professionalism and courtesy. Their accolades are well-deserved.

Dr.Q and his staff are amazing! I had dental implant surgery this year and the whole process from start to finish was smooth sailing. Dr.Q is very professional and very sweet. He called to check on me the evening of both my surgeries and I was shocked by that because no other doctor has ever done that before. I can't remember having any pain what so ever and everything is healing wonderfully. The office is always clean and decorated so nice. I'm grateful to have found this place. I highly recomm

Dr. Qaqish is the best. Very knowledgeable and does everything perfectly the first time. My procedure couldn't have gone quicker and more smoothly, it just isn't possible. I regret I can only give 5 stars, results like this deserves higher praise.

TERRIBLE doctor with no bedside manner, I went in for a consultation on 2/8/16 for teeth extraction for dentures and he was rude, very unprofessional, non-supportive and made me feel like I was doing something wrong. He tried talking me into getting permanent implants instead, which costs over $20K. It was such a horrible experience and he had such bad bedside manner. I will never recommend him to anyone!!!
