I had a very pleasant experience with Dr .Sarrafan and his staff. I was very anxious about my visit but Dr. Sarrafan was very patient and spend a lot of time trying to calm me down and explain things. His staff at front desk and his CDA were very helpful and kind and always available to help. Dr. Sarrafan is very professional, he takes the time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice .I recommended this great team to anyone who is looking for a new dental office.
Thanks so much for all your Patience over the years with myself and my husband. The staff are very friendly and helpful. They are terrific in accommodating special needs and Dr.Sarrafin is especially kind and genuine in his approach. His support staff are so so nice. I would highly recommend this office to anyone!
The staff at this dental practice are awesome. I love that the administrative support are always on top of your claims and let you know what will be covered before you are down a potentially expensive treatment path. The hygienists are always so kind and professional. The experience at the clinic has been a breath of fresh air after feeling like other practices on the north shore were ripping me off and taking advantage of my benefits. Thanks so much for taking me on as a patient!!
