After going to the same dental practice for 20 years, I could tell that the dentists had no idea who I was, beyond what they read in my file two minutes prior to seeing me. Based on a family member's recommendation, I switched to Bethesda Smiles and am so happy I did!  Drs. Navabi and Hirschfeld are talented dentists and wonderful people who take the time to listen to their patients' concerns.  I was terrified of having a root canal, and even though I knew I needed one, had been putting it off for years. Dr. Navabi clearly explained why I needed the procedure and put me at ease, promising it would be pain free. He came through on his promise. It was quick,  easy and I didn't feel a thing. Since then I have been going to both Drs. Navabi and Hirschfeld and can't recommend them enough. I now look forward to going to the dentist.

Coming from Eastern Europe, I had my fair share of bad dentistry. When I came to United States, I worked as dental assistant for a brief period of time where I met Dr. Navabi. I was very impressed with his professional approach and detailed explanation of what needed to be done. His office has the latest technology, is always very clean and hygienic, and the staff is extremely helpful. Dr. Navabi, never pushed for any treatment and honestly commented on other dentists work. My husband had some work done in Russia, and Dr. Navabi praised the work of the Russian dentist, saying that it was very well done. Even though I was already pleased with Dr. Navabi, this comment gave me extra confidence, that he is not one of "those dentists who always bad mouths other dentists work". With my share of bad experience in the past, I am very pleased with Dr. Navabi's work and with the work of his office. I have been his client for about 8 years now, and am not planning to change, even though they don't accept my insurance. I highly recommend him.

I went to Bethesda Smiles last week to get my teeth cleaned. Lets just say I'm not a huge fan of going to the dentist (who is?!), but the staff there was super friendly and gentle. I was impressed with both the dental hygienist and the dentist (Dr. Navabi). I'll definitely be back!
