    After speaking with a few different offices over the phone I felt Sunsmile was the dentist for me. I couldn't be happier. I've had bad dentist office experiences in the past so I really appreciate all of the positives at Sunsmile. Just to name a few the entire staff is ALWAYS so friendly and professional, the office is very CLEAN and neat with a home like feel, the dentist is EXTREMELY nice, thorough and really makes you feel like he cares. He doesn't make you feel like your a child being scolded for not flossing enough and being punished for it. I've a dentist like that in the past and it was a horrible experience. They also have late hours to accommodate their patients schedules. I'm a mother of two young boys so it was nice not to have to find a sitter during the day for them I conveniently was able to schedule a 6:30 pm weekday appointment so I could leave them home with husband once he got home from work. Not to mention the staff was very happy and in great moods at the end of the day not grumpy at all that they were there so late. I left at 7:30 and there were still a few patients there. Overall, I look forward to my dentist visits and would without a doubt recommend Sunsmile to everyone I know. They really treat their patients like GOLD!! :)

    At this time all I needed was a cleaning and that went very well. For other treatments, Dr Shaw was excellent and very gentle and I had no pain. i would definitely recommend him to others.

    I came in recently for my check-up and cleaning. I was recommended a follow-up deep cleaning with a specialist; while that's OK, it seems I can never just come in and get my check-up and cleaning -- I'm always getting a recommendation to come in for additional treatment. But I've come to expect that, and can get past it. But what really bothered me this time was the doctor's tactics of discussing my family members' dental situations and treatment choices with me, as a way of selling me additional treatments (something like, "your other family members have a similar problem, so it's likely genetic; I've recommended this treatment and so-and-so is going for it, so I think you'll realize you should as well."). It was totally off-base and completely illegal. I'm never coming back again.

    They always make me feel like I am the most important person in the place. They make sure I understand the procedures that are being done and the reasons behind them. They always work with me on timing, cost and the like. So glad I switched to Sun Smile. Isn't it time that you did, too?

    Dr. Shah is gentle, patient and a good communicator. I am convinced from being his patient that he treats me with the same level of care as he would any member of his family. Ruth and the rest of the staff are so friendly and warm. In a world where trust is in short supply, Sun Smile Dental shines as a bright example of what professional trust and outstanding service looks like.

    The dentist is very thorough, quick, and straight-forward. The rest of the staff is very friendly and make you feel at east even though it's very clear I hate the dentist office. It's my first time back to the dentist in several years and I have a lot of work to get done but they have been very accommodating and have helped me figure out an affordable way to get my teeth back in great shape. Would recommend this office to friends and family.
