Bad attitude and arrogant
I have never written a review in my life. This is a tooth pulling factory, they can not wait to get you in and out as fast as possible. The nurse who roomed me was rude and had a bad attitude. Dr. Rastegar came in and said, ok, we’re going to pull your tooth. I wanted to ask a questions before we actually did the procedure. He said, this is a discussion you should have had with your dentist already. He proceeded to talk to me like a child and said slowly, “oh you see, I am a oral surgeon, pointing to the pamphlet, I only do surgery”. I said, yes, i know, I just had a a question. He acted super annoyed and finally answered my 1 question. He was very arrogant and impatient. After I was done, I felt like they just pushed me out the door. I bled for many hours, it was terrible. I finally called, they advised to put tea bags which finally subsided. The nurse didn’t explain that to me. Another pt in the waiting room were complaining they were disorganized and got the wrong information.

On the first visit the doctor took an x-ray and gave me an estimate on tooth extraction, bone graft and implant. The next time I visited for actual tooth extraction and bone graft procedure, I was told that my request for bone graft and implant claim was denied by my health insurance, resulting over $500 more out of pocket than estimated. Nobody from the surgeon's office notified me about it, they claimed they sent out a letter to me but they couldn't find the said letter when I asked for a copy in their system. Eventually the doctor came out and talked to me, lying to my face saying he never gave me an estimate. I'm done with these guys, I'd rather give my business to somewhere that's honest.

my second visit was yesterday 6/10/19, first visit was 2017. I never had an extraction in my life and he removed two wisdom teeth and a third tooth in front of the wisdom tooth, I felt no pain. Second visit same experience and for me who is terrified of dental work. I can't believe I let it be. BUT I trust his skills and his experience speaks volumns. I recommend him highly. Dr Rastegar and his entire staff are so compassionate and patient. I thank them all for making a person like me feel confortable and that takes a lot. Thank you all. Now I am considering further dental work for implants. BUT I really have to pray for myself to embark on this. Its not so much cosmetic as it is for properly chewing my food after the seven teeth I lost. But I know if I decide to do the implants I would trust only Dr. Rastegar to do the procedure.

Dr. Rastegar & his team are outstanding. Over the years Ive had many dental issues. Dr. Rastegar has always made time for. Solved my problem,was gentle, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Hard to believe I would most definitely refer my family and friends to him. His new offices are beautiful and extremely comfortable. If you are in pain while waiting to see him it’s just a bonus to have comfortable seating and a soothing environment.

I was referred to see Dr. Rastegar for a wisdom tooth extraction. After reviewing my x-ray he concluded that the extraction was unecessary. I greatly appreciate his professionalism and am happy to have seen an honest surgeon.

My visit to Dr Rastegar once again exceeded expectations.as I went back to him to for my fifth implant.His work is excellent . He did all my four implants about 6 years ago and I am so grateful for that because it feels perfect ,just like my own teeth. He is very professional, friendly and gentle. He makes it all look so simple. His staff is also very kind and friendly.You will know you are in good hands with Dr Rastegar.They certainly deserve to be recommend. Eryka Volker

Dr. Rastegar left me with permanent lingual nerve damage after my wisdom tooth extraction. He told me there was nothing he could do for me after. I am always in severe pain now. I wish I used another doctor, and hope you stay far away.
