"Like many, I’m not fond of going to the dentist. Perhaps because I like to talk. Dr. Ahmad is wonderful. He’s gentle, he explains as he goes and is very consciencious of my feelings. He staff is pleasant and helpful with insurance. You can’t ask for more!"
"Our family is very happy with New Smile, they are all professionals, excellent results, flexible hours and in a few occasions, the Doctor walked the extra mile to accomplish my daughter's dentistry needs. Really appreciated."

"Maybe your pediatrician will not know this detail. But children get somewhat overwhelmed in a busy, big dentist with a lot of people, where the schedule is tight and there is only so much that can be done to wait for your child to adjust. Conversely, New smile dental is the best place for children because they will be so patient and helpful and meet your child where he or she is, that your child will LOVE going to the dentist, which is ultimately what you want. Try this place so your kids love the dentist. It is not about the toys and decoration of a place, it is about the people who work there. Here they will also get their end of visit treat."
