    As always, I had the best doctor and superb services at Shifa Dental. I never felt the need to go to any other dentist after coming to this place a couple of years ago. Their attention to details is masterful and coupled with the care for their patients they show is truly wonderful. A big thank to all the people at Shifa Dental.

    It was my first time here and it was a great experience. I have sensitive teeth so they would check in to make sure the cleaning was feeling okay. The staff was very personable and I did not have to wait long. I would highly recommend!
