"Both Krystle and Dr. Fathei are very Friendly and Very professional. It was a very nice experience ."
"Dr Fatehi removed three of my wisdom teeth. There was a bit of wait but not uncommon for a doctor's office. There was some miscommunication between me, the front desk staff and Dr Fatehi. I thought I was getting the removal done on the spot but Dr Fatehi thought it was a consultation. He managed to sqeeze me in his schedule and did the removal surgery on the same day. It saved me some trouble of having to come back for another appointment. The surgery took about 20 minutes - two of my teeth came off without too much trouble but had to be broken apart before extraction. I was given partial anesthesia. Recovery was fine with no complication. Three months on, I almost forgot that I had wisdom teeth and they used to give me recurring inflammation. The admin team ran my insurance (Aetna DMO) through the system on the spot and I paid a copay. No problem with billing thereafter."
"After a year of cancer treatments I was terrified to face more pain. The doctor and his team was reassuring. The doctor explained each step, He was skillful and lower my fear factor - which can trigger more pain. So at the end it was great to get good care and support."
"Dr. Fatehi is a fantastic dental surgeon. I have had bad experiences in the past and was a little anxious. But Krystle put me at ease immediately. I had two wisdom teeth removed and it took less than 5 minutes with no pain at all. Great staff, clean rooms, and Krystle was the best assistant ever.Thank you DDS Group!!"
"I was scared at first to get my implant. I told him and he assured me and made me feel at ease. Then he made jokes while the procedure was going on...lol. It was great. He took his time to explain things to me."
