So happy I've finally found my dentist. She was so good, took a lot of time to talk to me about the existing work I've had done on my teeth, the health of my teeth, gums, roots, etc. And I left with my teeth feeling the cleanest ever. Highly, highly recommend her!
Fantastic experience! I think this is the first time the dentist actually cleaned my teeth (as opposed to a hygienist). The staff is wonderful!
Have been looking for a dentist in the city for some time and, long story short, needed to make a next-day appointment when I noticed some serious wear on my bottom teeth and was long overdue for a cleaning anyway. She and her staff were prompt and professional. Dr. Akhavan was very detailed and explained what she was doing any why. Really happy with my decision.
Dr Akhavan is incredibly thorough and gentle. Best dentist I ever had.
Excellent very the Dr was very kind & concerned with my needs. She personally followed up that evening to see if I was comfortable. Could not have asked for anything better.
Shes the best! Very calm, soothing and educational. Shes also the only dentist Ive ever been to that does the cleaning, as opposed to a hygenist doing it. You really feel like she cares and you will leave confident that your teeth are perfect
A visit to Dr. Akhavan is always a pleasant experience.
She is the best dentist I have even had! She communicates everything she does and fully explains the procedure. She truly cares for her patient and treats you like a friend.
Best dentist ever!!!!
Great experience, very patient, explains everything in a clear manner, respectful and gentle but thorough in her work.
Dr. Akhavan is a great dentist. I appreciate that she patiently and clearly explains what she is looking for and what she finds during an exam and then explains all of the options for treatment. She has a light touch but is very thorough. She is very present and unhurried. I would recommend her heartily to anyone looking for a dentist.
Hands down one of the best in NYC!
i will recommend to my friends,she's an amazing dentist for me.i have a good cleaning on my entire life.
Excellent doctor!
Doctor Akhavan is a very professional and kind person. She is very explicit for each procedure she takes, does not push to sell and always told me what my options were. I would definitely recommend her.

Excellent treatment, very professional and friendly dentist. Highly recommended.
Dr. Akhavan and her team are excellent! by far the best dentist I've been to.
Dr. A, Jocelyn, and Margherita are amazing! They all treated me wonderfully and were sensitive to my anxiety and needs. I have never had better dental care and service in my life. I definitely recommend her if you are looking for a great dentist in NYC! Thank you Dr. A!!!
I have been Dr. Akhavan's patient for about 10 years. She is incredibly caring, kind, and so gentle. She is an amazing doctor.
Very professional, considerate and skilled dentist.
Will recommend to all my friends. Very professional , accurate diagnosis and gentle with her hands.
I definitely would recommend Dr. Akhavan. Her staff was friendly and put me at ease and was great at communicating during the whole visit. I had not visited the dentist for several years so I was nervous. But now I think I will look forward to my appointments after seeing Akhavan.
Great dentist! Takes time to talk with her patients, explains things in simple and basic terms, and overall makes going to the dentist a pleasant experience. Can't ask for much more than that!
Just the best.
Dr Akhavan is a really nice person, very sweet that makes you feel comfortable! She provides highly quality services and she's very communicative. We discussed all of the options I had in an understandable way. She is highly recommended
Very professional and accurate diagnosis
Dr. Akhavan makes the whole experience comfortable and relaxing, which is not easy for a dentist to do! She also explains every single thing she notices in your mouth in a way that is helpful without being condescending.
Dr. Akhavan was fantastic. Although there was a bit of a wait, she was very apologetic for keeping me waiting. Also, and very importantly, the office staff were terrific. I highly recommend her.
Accurate diagnosis, very professional, gentle and very patient with getting the treatment done properly.
My visit with Dr. Akhavan was a pleasure from start to finish. Her administrative and clinical staff are warm, attentive, and efficient. Dr. Akhavan is caring, took ample time, and thoughtfully considered each my questions and concerns. Her exam and analysis were more detailed than any I've had with other dentists. I'm enthusiastically refering my friends and family to her and look forward to my follow up visit!
Azadeh is an excellent dentist. I am very happy with the great treatment I received today.
My visit to Dr. Akhavan was great! She was by far the best dentist I've had in terms of her work, patience and communication with me. She took time to ask me questions, listen to my answers, and give me an informed opinion on my issues. Also, more importantly, she was very gentle in her work and made me feel comfortable and at ease. I would definitely recommend her to a friend.
I typically dread dental appointments, so I'm OVERJOYED to have found Dr. Akhavan! She was extremely gentle and thorough in her examination. She also took the time to explain everything to me and I was seen immediately after I walked in! Could not recommend enough.
Gentle, caring, and thorough. Could not be more pleased with Dr. Akhavan!
She was fantastic!
I had to get a number of cavities filled and Dr. Akhavan was incredibly helpful in helping me understand everything and she never once made me feel badly about having cavities (which other dentists have done) and I am extremely grateful for her and I am so glad I finally found an amazing dentist
I've had a really good experience with this office. Dr. Azadeh is very calm, patient and thorough. She explains everything in detail and is very considerate. The assistant, Jocelyn, and the admin, Margherita, are great too. I can't recommend this office highly enough.
Very prompt and professional. She always explains options and what she's going to do as she goes along. Highly recommend!
Dr. Azadeh was amazing. I felt completely safe to ask questions and completely taken care of in her hands. She took the time to explain to me everything that I needed get done, and was so patient. There was no waiting time at all.
Dr Akhavan is incredibly competent and great at putting patients at ease.
Best dentist I've ever been to. Knowledgeable, friendly, gentle.
Great dentist
I love going to Dr Akhavan's office. She herself is very patient and very detailed and thorough when working on my tooth. Her staff at the office are also super friendly and helpful.
Honestly was a great appointment. Just a teeth cleaning, but Dr. Akhavan was very thorough as it was my first appointment - took X-rays and explained everything we were looking at in the x-rays. Even teeth cleaning, she explained everything she noticed, made suggestions about what I can do to keep up with my dental health, what to keep an eye on, and what we will look for next time. Extremely friendly and knowledgable. Highly recommended.
She is a wonderful dentist. Thorough, kind and honest! I have been seeing for years after bad experiences with previous dentists who recommended unnecessary procedures. I highly recommend her.
Dr. Akhavan is THE BEST! Timely, thorough, and working with insurance is a breeze.
Dr. Akhavan continues to be the best dentist I have ever been to. She really gets to know her patients and does her own cleanings and in doing so is able to impart so much knowledge and oral hygiene tips to her patients, she has honestly completely changed my teeth; I used to always have cavities and I now have great teeth. The office experience itself is very pleasant too as she plays comforting music in the room and even gives you a really good "toothbrush goodie bag" at the end. She's the best!
From when I first arrived, the friendly professional care put me at ease. So helpful when needing emergency care for an Australian tourist. Thank you so much!
Dr. Akhavan has a very patient and friendly bedside manner and she gave the gentlest and most thorough cleaning I have ever had from a dentist. I also had my teeth whitened and it makes such a difference - I feel like I've shaved a few years off my smile! She provides a lot of good and clear information about common problems and prevention. Highly recommended.
Dr. Akhavan is an amazing dentist. She explains everything very clearly, is professional, friendly and has always seen me at the time of my appointment. The staff is also friendly and professional. I would HIGHLY recommend.
Best dentist ever. Very friendly, patient and pays close attention to detail. Truly takes the time to explain what she's doing and educate me about dental hygiene. I hesitate to share this because I don't want her schedule to book up!
Dr. Akhavan is hands-down the best doctor I've ever had. She's gentle, but thorough, and never makes you feel rushed. She answers questions clearly and precisely, and takes your oral health very seriously. Equally important, Margherita at the front desk is extremely professional - polite and friendly, but also extremely competent in managing appointments and billing. Can't recommend her enough!
I have been seeing Dr. Akhavan for approx. 7 years now. She is super gentle and literally does the cleanings herself because she wants to look each tooth closely and make sure that everything checks out. She literally said that to me today. If you care about your teeth and have had a less than excellent experience you should definitely give her a call. You wont regret it!
Visit was excellent in every way!
Excellent experience with the knowledgeable and friendly Dr Akhavan.
Dr. Akhavan is the best!!! I've had consistently great experiences with her and her staff. All are highly professional as well as being extremely warm and personable! I find myself looking forward to, rather than dreading trips to the dentist!
Dr. Akhavan is heaven sent for me. She has made my dental visit experience so pleasant. I just love how thorough she is and how she never rushes our appointment time. Margherita is also amazing, such a great team!
Great Dentist!
She a true, caring professional.
Dr Akhavan is not only very knowledgable but also very considerate!
Dr. Akhavan and her staff are friendly, warm, and fantastic. I am so glad to have found such an excellent dentist in NYC.
I've had a lot of bad luck with dentists in the past, so a colleague of mine recommended that I see Dr. Akhavan. I'm so glad I did! She is excellent - extremely thorough, attentive, and has the best interest of her patients in mind. I can't say enough good things about her and her staff. Highly recommend!
Dr. Akhavan is an amazing dentist and a very kind person. She was thorough and did not rush even though her appointments were running a bit over. She took the time to answer all of my questions and explain things to me that I wanted or needed more information on.
Highly professional and super nice!
Great friendly atmosphere. Went into details of how I can improve my dental health. Best experience at a dentist yet.
I went back to Dr. Akhavan for my appointment to get my crown made and everything went flawlessly. She's always polite, friendly and professional.
She was very thorough...not rushed at all....not dogmatic about her answers and open to conversation. Also very gentle.
My every visit is a blast!! Dr. Ak Havana is the best dentist I've ever had!
Very thorough and caring. Highly recommended! I usually find it difficult to be 100% satisfied with dentists. I didn't have any complains so far and I have been with dr Akhavan for a couple of years now.
I've been seeing Dr. Akhavan for 2 years. She's fantastic-- super professional, warm, and very knowledgable. Highly recommended!!
Dr. Akhavan is great! I've seen her twice now, once for a cleaning and once to get a filling replaced. She's super professional and friendly, I fell very comfortable with her. She made an effort to thoroughly explain each process and why she was doing what she was doing. Also, she plays very soothing classical music during appointments :)
As always, Dr. Akhavan and her team were wonderful. Like most people I avoid/fear going to the dentist for any reason, but Dr. Akhavan is patient and gentle. She takes the time to explain her recommendations and is open and available to answering any questions. Her team is also great, making you feel welcome and going above and beyond to make sure you get what you need. Honestly, it's just a great place!
As always Dr. Akhavan was great!
Love doctor Akhavan! My husband and I have been going to see her for almost three years now and we both love her. She's great at communicating what you need and what you should be improving on without making you feel bad. She's always done great work and we both trust her completely. Her entire office staff is really fantastic and I wouldn't think of going anywhere else in New York City!
I have been going to Dr Akhavan for two years, have had multiple cleanings, checks and now she is doing my Invisalign treatment. Dr A is an absolute delight! Incredibly knowledgeable, answers all my questions in detail and as if she has all the time in the world for me. On top of all this she is an incredibly kind and warm person, it is always such a pleasure going to the dentist.
Best in the game, greatest of all time.
She's a caring dentist who I've been seeing for years and highly recommend.
I have never had as good of an experience with a dentist as I did with Dr. Akhavan. Extremely patient, attentive and caring. Took time to explain everything she was doing to me and answer all my questions (even about matters unrelated to my own dental care). I will never go to another dentist so long as she practices in the area.
I love visiting Dr. Akhavan because she's extremely knowledgeable and answers any questions I have with detailed, yet simple explanations. I would highly recommend her as your regular dentist!
