Ratings for Dr. David Hakimi
I cannot stand it when dentists are rough and talk when they are working on your mouth. My gums bleed easily and so going to the dentist has always been uncomfortable for me. I am so thankful I found Dr. Hakimi he really understood my issues and helped me plan to improve my gum health and over oral hygiene. This offices offers so much more than regular dentistry, they have amazing specialty services and I recommend them to all my friends. I have friends that have gone to see Dr. Hakimi and are now regular patients just like me.
I am in my late fifties and had ok teeth from childhood. My parents thought braces were not a priority for me because of the extra expense. Now I was ready to take charge of my own dentistry. I went to Dr. Hakimi for invisaline, He was so kind. He sat and talked with me about my options and never rushed me or pressured me. I decided to go for it and the results are great and the entire process is easy and virtually painless.
So I was going here for dental surgery. I needed to go under anesthesia and I started to panic. I had traumatic experiences as a kid and thankfully Dr. Hakimi understands. He offers sedation dentistry for those patients like me who as adults still do not like going to the dentist. This procedure begins at home where you take a pill to relax. Then you are escorted to the office by a member of the Hakimi team and accompanied to a comfortable room and rapped in a nice big blanket. I was so relaxed I did not even notice when it was going on and when it was over I was escorted back home. The relaxation lasts about six hours and you can take minor pain medication after if needed, but I was able to sleep and this was the best dentist visit of my life. I am thankful to have a dentist who truly cares.
Customer service is the main priority here. Dr. Hakimi and his staff really care about their clients and whenever I am there I feel welcome and appreciated. When I first started I really liked how they do patient education and explain all their procedure and give information on general dental care. Dr. Hakimi is the only dentist I will go to and all my friends and family have switched to him too, and are so happy they did!
Dr. Hakimi is the best! His gentle manner and excellent skills are the perfect combination for what I had, a root canal. His assistant, Alisha, is so knowledgeable at her job she was ready for his next procedure before he had the need or opportunity to ask, and they are both very cool people too, and the music that I asked for through "Pandora's" were songs Alisha also knew by heart and relaxed me so much I nodded off and slept quite a few times for a little each time. And this was for a 'root canal.' I felt pain for a total of about one second, which Dr. Hakimi took away with more Novocaine. This was my second root canal, and I'm planning to get my third and last within a few weeks. Thank you, Doctor!
I went to have some minor work done. I was hoping to put it off, but I have heard wonderful things about Dr. Hakimi and knew I had to go in. My entire experience was great and best of all it was painless. I usually feel the numbing lasts long after I go home, but not this time. The doctor was so professional and I felt comfortable throughout the experience. Dr. Hakimi changed the way I view dentists.
I visited Westlake Smile Design to seal some old cavities I had and were driving me crazy. I really liked the results so I decided to have some other cosmetic procedures done. My insurance covered most of the treatment so I was really happy for that. The Dr is an excellent dentist and I will definitely visit him again for any dental treatment I decide to do in the future.
