Ratings for Dr. Ashkan Hafezi
This guy is a pro. If you are lucky enough to be in your care you are in good hands. While I was in the patient's chair he was explaining a procedure to another patient. She was rude and abrupt with him but he never lost his cool. He ended up beginning my procedure half an hour late. For this he discounted the rate. I've never experienced something like this from a dentist. He was straightforward with me about the procedure as well. He said I had only 50% chance to save the tooth. I really appreciated this kind of honesty. I paid to have him attempt it anyways, but I was well aware of the risk of failure. Luckily, the procedure was a success.
I went for emergency consultation to Dr. Hafezi. It was Friday afternoon and I was last patient. He seemed to be in a much of a hurry. Just briefly glanced at the x-ray from my dentist and told me I need : 1. another root canal 2. possibly surgery after or 3. extract the tooth. He was ready to leave when I asked him to drain the abscess of my tooth that was giving me much pain. Dr. Hafezi drained the abscess. Thankfully the wait time to see him for root canal was 9 weeks so my dentist send me to another specialist from Vanedno half a block away. This doctor took his time accessing the situation and multiple x-rays. In the end he did a surgery and the problem was a debris round the root. It saved me unnecessary procedure of another root canal plus changing the crow on that tooth around $2500 or more.
Great dentist! He took me in for an emergency root canal and I was seen right away . He was fast and efficient and very skilled. I am a nervous patient so was given sedation before the procedure so was so calm and relaxed I didn't notice anything till it was over! I recommend him especially for nervous patients.
The other night I called Dr. Hafezi has I had a sporatic dental problem arise during pregnancy. I was surprised with how promptly he responded to my concerns and helped put me at ease. He asked me many questions and listened to all my concerns. He booked me in for an appointment right away and helped alievate my stress level as a first time mom to be! :-) Also, I'd like to add that I had a root canal done by Dr. Hafezi years ago and it was very successful (it was a front tooth) and it is still white till this day with no issues. Thank you kindly for all your hard work and dedication to the endodontist field! -Sophia Agalou
I'm a colleague of Dr Hafezi's and have worked with him for several years. I do not recall a time where he wouldn't see an emergency patient of mine to offer some immediate relief. He is compassionate , hard working, shows empathy and has a great skill set. I've been treated by him myself and literally fell asleep during my root canal. Hands down the best Endodontist in town!

My dentist recommended Dr. Hafezi as she felt confident he could do root canal without affecting the bridge work connected to the infected tooth. She was right . He saw me the same day and stayed late to finish the procedure. I'm not exaggerating when I say that I,ve had more pain getting my teeth cleaned then getting a root canal procedure from Dr. Hafezi. He gives patients his cell number and tells them to call if there is any pain before the next appointment. I did get an infection with pain 3 days before my follow up appt. so he saw me immediately and fixed the problem One month later everything is great.
Dr. Hafezi and his lovely staff worked late into the night to accommodate me the same day. I hadn't slept the whole weekend because of pain. The treatment was smooth, quick and painless. I fell asleep in the chair during treatment. Excellent doctor, staff and office!
I was totally scared to get a root canal done, however, after seeing Dr. Hafezi, the experience couldn't have been any better. Beautiful office, friendly receptionist. Doctor totally made me feel comfortable, went over a few scenarios of how to fix the tooth and resolved my problem, he stayed later for me which was also very appreciated.
After several weeks of painful nights I finally found some relief with Dr. Hafezi's proper diagnosis and treatment. He is very patient and knowledgeable. He explained everything to me in details, gave me all the options and let me decide on my own with no pressure. Great staff, very helpful and caring. Painless dental treatment and no pain since then.
