Dr. Abdulla is a very competent dentist. She was did a great job on my teeth and she was able to explain everything very well. The only reason I docked her on bedside manner is that she is a bit cool. However, overall I enjoyed the experience and will be returning.
Dr. Abdulla was great. Such a hardworking staff! I would certainly recommend Rittenhouse Dentistry.
I really enjoyed my experience. I was super impressed with the service and the hospitality. I loved that parrafin hand treatment and the lavender infuse office! It made me really relaxed... If my teeth were horrible, I'd be so happy come to the office all the time!
Very professional plus wonderful personal touches like a paraffin hand treatment. The office was lovely and the staff was incredibly friendly. Would highly recommend and look forward to returning
She's awesome. I chose her because she's an Alumnus of my school and I couldn't be more happy. Knowledgeable, funny, tech friendly place. I agree with all the positive reviews to date. Highly recommend!
Incredible! I felt right at home as soon as I walked in. Everyone is very nice and they even pampered me with a complimentary paraffin hand treatment (WOW!). Dr. Abdulla was very sweet and listened to all my concerns. I will be back for sure.
Very comfortable and welcoming. Knowledgeable and able to communicate well with me as the patient.
The whole staff was pleasant and friendly. Even the atmosphere is tranquil. They made me feel comfortable.
GREAT dentist, which is not easy to find. All of the staff are pleasant and helpful too. I highly recommend!
Dr Abdulla and her staff provided me the most positive, pleasant dental experience I have ever had. She and her staff are kind, professional and caring. It was a real pleasure to go to my appointment.
Very nice, very easy going. Definitely gave me a lot of confidence in her ability but was a pleasure to speak to. Will report back if my next visit changes anything, but I suspect it won't.
I had a very pleasant dental exam. Everyone was very welcoming and the office was beautiful. I would definitely recommend my friends and family to go to Dr. Abdulla.
Absolute best dentist office experience ever!
The entire staff was friendly. Their system is tech friendly, making the scheduling and paperwork very convenient. Dr Abdulla is a fantastic dentist! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
Only met with her for a few minutes, but I like her already!
Nice people and place. Quite and comfortable.
Great experience -- quick, comfortable, good care.
Hands down best dental experience yet! The staff is super friendly, the office is beautiful and very calming, and there is nothing better than seeing little Lolita running around to take away the anxiety. Great cleaning, and I cannot wait to start my Invisalign in a few weeks! Would recommend Dr. Abdulla to anyone!
Very professional and friendly - And INCREDIBLY informative.
Welcoming, friendly, and gentle. Would recommend her to anyone looking for a great Dentist in CC.
This is the BEST dental practice I have ever been to.
Everything was great!
Great first visit! Beautiful and clean office, great reception, awesome hygienists.
Dr. Abdulla was friendly and very informative. Her assistant Elise was great also. I would highly recommend them!
She was very kind and considerate!
She recognized I was nervous and was very comforting. She was also gentle around the sensitive areas of my mouth.
General cleaning and check up
I felt in control of my appointment from the moment I walked in until the moment I left. The complimentary hand massage was an extra huge treat(!), and they even had time to do my Night Guard molds at the end of the appointment when I decided to do that last minute! I've wanted a new retainer for a long time, but never been able to afford one - Dr. Abdulla worked with me to find something in my range and said I could always call in later to have my bite molds done. There was no pressure to get one today or from her office. The best part of my appointment was that I got along excellently with the hygienist who cleaned my teeth--I'll definitely be back!
i even got a complimentary hand paraffin treatment during my cleaning! who gets that? so nice! felt more like a spa than the dentist... highly recommend
Shimma was outstanding. I was so happy with my visit. Both she and her staff were knowledgeable and polite. They answered all my questions and helped me with my concerns. The best part was that she did not try to sell me unnecessary services or upsell me on anything. They just did a great exam and cleaning. This is what a dental visit is supposed to be like. Once again, very happy.
Always professional, courteous, and thorough.
Beautiful and clean office, very professional and friendly staff. The attention to detail makes the visit beyond comfortable. Every piece of the visit felt modern and thorough, they really spent time to ensure they are taking good care of your smile! Loved the complimentary hand massage!!
Dr. Shimma and her staff were wonderful. It was a very pleasant experience.
Not only is Dr. Abdulla amazing, but so is her staff! Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable and displays a sincere willingness to help. Also the entire atmosphere of the office is very soothing. One could liken it to a Dental spa more than a dentists office.
I was comfortable, the cleaning was fast and thorough and the staff was friendly. I am happy I found a great dentist.
efficient, professional, overall, a very pleasant experience!
I could not have been happier. Well done. Welllllll done.
Best dentist I have ever had. Awesome place, great attractive staff...
The office was clean and nice. The workers were very polite, helpful ,nice, and informational.
Overall good experience
I thought Susan was amazing. She was so gentle and made sure that I was okay the whole time. I really liked her, and she made my dentist phobia go away. Thanks so much Susan!
Grea office with great staff!!! Loved that I was able to fill out forms before, which saved me time!!! Thank You for a great visit!!
Dr. Abdulla and her staff are fantastic. Went in for a regular check-up and they were friendly, accommodating, efficient, and they made sure I felt comfortable the entire time. Cannot recommend enough!
I was impressed with how quickly she determine what you would need to improve the problem.. and she has a great personality...easy to talk to...you will not be disappointed...
The office is clean and beautiful and the staff are extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and efficient.
I've tried many dentists over the years. Having suffered from bad experiences as a child w/my dentist, my experiences w/Dr. Abdulla are so amazing/relaxing and PAIN FREE. I have recommended her and this office to so many people.
I feel like I'm visiting a spa when I come in for dental checkups. The atmosphere is relaxing and professional.
Every single person I interacted with was extremely friendly and helpful. It was a great experience and is a great practice.
It was just a consultation so I can't say I can recommend anyone as I did not receive any treatment. For her bedside manner and over all friendliness I would say she's great. Made me feel at ease. The office is very friendly and calming as well.
Dr. Abdulla is very personable, informative, and helpful; and the facilities and people are very nice! I would definitely recommend Rittenhouse Dentists.
She was nt Dr.Shimma but she was perfect
Everyone was amazing, kind and extremely informative. Recommended for sure!
Pleasant office, professional and comfortable office procedures with a true concern for patient's well being. Dr A even called my home on her day off, offering to see me then if necessary. It wasn't, but what a nice touch.
The visit was amazing. The staff is very friendly and Dr. Abdulla was very nice, thorough,kind and very professional. Everything you are wanting in a dentist.
Awesome, answered all questions, was very comfortable with all her recommendations. Her staff was nice and friendly.
I just moved into the area and I was nervous to go see a new dentist. I found Rittenhouse through ZocDoc and they had good ratings, so I said why not? It was a great decision to make by going there. Everyone was extremely friendly and all my nerves were gone! I got seen right away and the dentist did all of the work on my teeth. They were also very friendly and knowledgable. I highly recommend them!
Dr. Abdulla was fabulous. Thorough, knowledgeable, kind... everything I want in a health care professional. Highest recommendation!!
I saw Dr Meena Sellappan. She was awesome, thorough, but not rough. She gave great patient education and explained things. She established great rapport. The hot hand wax for relaxation and the lip balm application prior to the procedure/cleaning so your lips don't dry out was a GREAT TOUCH!
Totally professional and pleassnt team. I felt comfortable and well taken care of
I saw Dr. Meena Sellappan and she was awesome. The dental assistant was also fabulous/very friendly. This was the friendliest, quickest, painless, easiest dental appointment I've ever been to. They make you feel so comfortable and relaxed. I just recently moved to PA from FL and I have not had many great experiences at the dentist, so I was dreading the visit... however, they were awesome and I'm actually looking forward to my future visits!
She and her assistant were both amazing! I felt like I was in great care. They talked me through everything they were going to do. They were gentle and efficient! I have been to many other dentists and Dr. Abdulla and her assistant were by far the best I've experienced
She was extremely nice and friendly.
Dr. Abdulla was fantastic, as were all the people who work with her. They were friendly, efficient, informative, and easy to chat with. Dr. Abdulla is obviously an exceptional provider, and I will definitely get all my dental work done here in the future.
They were great!! Elise was extremely helpful in helping me understand everything!
Nicest dentist you'll ever meet. Didn't tooth-shame me, which was appreciated.
Absolutely amazing, patient and upfront!
Amazing facilities and kind, helpful staff. I was very nervous going in but the hygienist and the doctor treated me with such respect and care that I was instantly put at ease. Easiest dentist appointment I've ever had. AND they gave me a hydrating wax for my hands while they did the cleaning. My hands were healed as well as my fear of dentists.
Great! I will recommend it
I love this office! I was surprised to have a little pain after my root canal (typically I don't) but everything during the appointment was great!
What an (oddly) pleasant dentist visit. Almost seems like an oxymoron to say that....but the dentist, assistant, & hygienist were lovely. No shaming me for perceived subpar dental practices. And they did a complimentary paraffin hand treatment. Loved it.
Everything was handled efficiently during my visit and the individuals I interacted with were very amiable and professional. It was a great first experience!
Informative, professional and attentive to my needs!
Easy dentist appointment - great experience with no wait and great service.
Every person who I came in contact with (receptionist, dental hygienist, dentist) was pleasant and competent. I Am Thoroughly Pleased!
Perfect Experience !! Very professional, knowledgeable and considerate--A great endorsement for ANY business, especially a Dental practice.
Shimma was extraordinary! Positive, kind and everything you would hope for in a dentist!
Super friendly staff, really great treatment plan made up front with no hidden costs - AND really helpful since I have dental anxiety. Awesome dentist!
Alisha, my hygienist is SPECTACULAR.
