★★★★★ Most people dread going to the dentist but Reflection's atmosphere and vibe is so relaxing and comforting. Dr. Akhavan and his staff are extremely professional. They are very friendly, passionate about their work, and politely greeted me the second I walked in the door. The office is beautiful, clean, updated, and very modern. I went in and did the new patient special which was ONLY $40. Dr. Akhavan is extremely ethical and does not diagnose unnecessary treatment plans in order to profit. I loved how he gave me a number of treatment options that best suited my financial means. I 100% recommend Dr. Akhavan and staff to anyone looking for a friendly, professional, and experienced dentist.

★★★★★ Dr. Akhavan is a wonderful dentist. I usually dread going to see a dentist but since I started going to Dr. Akhavan my experience is always pleasant. He is caring and positive and puts you at ease. He took out my top wisdom teeth and it only took her 15 minutes! It was fast and painless. My gums healed without any problems and I was eating an apple 3 days later! He is also extremely honest and won't try to push you to do any unnecessary dental work like many other dentists I have encountered. I highly recommend her! Best dentist by far!

★★★★★ I had such a wonderful experience with Doctor Akhavan. He is a perfectionist and I had a horrible experience with a prior dentist and there were issues with a particular tooth. This dentist worked wonders and I couldn't be happier with the result. I can feel confident to smile again! The office and staff are also very warm and professional. I am beyond satisfied with my experience with this dentist.
