Bethesda Dental Health Associates
Bethesda, MD 20814
I've been seeing Dr. Lakhani since 2009 and recommend her practice to everyone I know. She's a lovely person and talented dentist, and she and her staff are compassionate, knowledgeable, and passionate about dental health. They've truly transformed my outlook on going to the dentist's office. I have many blessings in life, but great teeth are not one of them. Combine that with the trauma of seeing an awful childhood dentist and I ended up absolutely terrified of my annual checkups. My mom found a better dentist when I was a teenager, who I saw into early adulthood until it became impractical to schedule trips home around my teeth. I needed someone local. And I owe Yelpers credit for pointing me to Dr. Lakhani. Under Dr. Lakhani's care I came to see my dental health as something I put a little bit of effort into every day. I've never felt an expectation to totally overhaul my life - there's no shame cast by this office about enjoying the occasional cupcake! - but rather to make sure small, good habits become part of my regular routine. It's paid dividends. Sure, I'll never have genetically amazing teeth. But my dental health is better than ever and my fear of the dentist is gone. On top of all this, I think it's awesome that this is a woman-owned-and-operated business that is full of DMV natives and longtime residents.
I started seeing Dr. Lakhani after a negative experience with a large and very well-known practice elsewhere in Bethesda. Dr. Lakhani came highly recommended to me by my endodontist who recommended her for completing the crown for the root canal he had just performed on me. My very first experience/visit with her, and every visit since then has been exceptional.and almost enjoyable if you can say that about any dental appointment! Her entire staff is very professional; her office environment is calm and you feel as though you are the only patient in the office because when you're in the chair, they are focused solely on you - unlike other dental practices where you feel like the dentist and assistants are running in and out to check on other patients. I'm happy to say that my husband and young children are now also patients of Dr. L's - and I would happily and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a kind, gentle and knowledgeable dentist!!
I love her. Great, friendly office...small and personable. Dr. Lakhani's been very helpful through some dental trauma. Highly recommend.
Just came back from the fourth time for a crown fitting-failed again. This time the crown (for front teeth) is visually a lot longer than the neighboring teeth, although I personally think it is bether than the third time when it grows to the side. I do not think it is all the technician's incompetence again and again. Should I switch to another dentist at this point?
I've been going to this office for years- mainly for convenience since I used to live in the building- but since Dr. Lakhani's arrival, I've really had great experiences. First and foremost, she's wonderful- very friendly, knowledgeable and willing to take the time explain/answer any questions. Any small dental-related hiccups I've run into over the years- she has been more than willing to make right. The office is always clean and for the most part, the entire staff (front office, hygienists etc) are extremely wonderful! Dr. Lakhani truly cares about her patients- highly recommend!
She's super nice and personable, in addition to being a great dentist but the real reason for this five star review was my experience today. It's less than a week before my wedding and one of my teeth literally broke in half. An old crown from when I was a kid broke and a huge chunk of my tooth just disintegrated. Even though she was totally booked up already, Dr. Lakhani managed to squeeze me in today and fix me up. She did a fantastic job too. I couldn't recommend her more highly.
