I had a dental emergency and drove straight to the office during lunch time. I didn't know if they were open at that time. The staff fit me in, and I was taken care of promptly, even though I had no appointment and did not call ahead. All the staff were genuinely concerned about my pain and my sudden situation. Dr. Foroughi is a wonderful dentist! He is very knowledgeable, experienced, and confident, and this puts the patient at ease. He explains your condition and treatment options (which have been spot on for me). His staff explains costs and payment options in a friendly, helpful way. Family Smile is the best!
I’ve been a Registered Nurse for over 25 years and have had contact with thousands of medical practitioners, but Dr. Foroughi is by far my FAVORITE of them ALL. Every single time I visit his office I remind myself “why” I keep going back! Dr.Foroughi takes the time to probe to understand the patient and their current health management and incorporates this into his assessment. He displays empathy, concern and genuinely takes the time needed to ensure understanding. Today I was “clear” of any decay, but Dr. Foroughi voiced his concerns on my “bone” decay and asked if I “clinch” my jaw/teeth. He helped educate me further on importance of overall health impacting oral health and provided me with his personal massage therapist to help loosen up some of this tension. Thank you so much, DrForoughi for genuinely taking the time and caring for me…. I can’t thank you enough!
After visiting Family Smile Dentistry for an emergency crown a few months back, I visited again today for my first official appointment. That meant a complete review with X-rays of my teeth. Tammy was my tech and was remarkable. I’ve historically dreaded visits to the dentist and Tammy made me feel quite at ease. She was engaging, personable, gentle and professional, constantly checking to be sure I was ok through the entire x-ray process. Enter Dr. Jarquin, she recalled my prior visit, asked if I had any issues from my prior visit and if there was anything I wanted checked today. I was not just another set of teeth in the seat (so to speak). Dr. Jarquin thoroughly reviewed my X-rays with me, did a full check / screening of my teeth/mouth and reviewed her observations/photos with me. All the while she too was professional, personable, calm and gentle. I continue to find my experiences with Dr. Jarquin (and all of Family Smile Dentistry folks), to be so good, that I believe they can actually help eliminate the apprehension and fear that many people (like myself) have over going to a dentist. They certainly have done that for me.
I had my teeth cleaned yesterday by Loan at Family Smile Dentistry. She did a great job and is very enthusiastic about making you feel comfortable. She gave me a pillow and some glasses and asked me a couple of times if I was alright.The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. To conclude it was a very pleasant visit. Thank you, Luisa Gregan
I am so thankful I went yesterday for a 2nd opinion immediately after leaving my current dentist office (which has been taken over by one of these corporate companies)! Years of going there, I have never had anything but 2 cleanings a year as I have always had healthy teeth and gums. But all of a sudden the hygienist said oh I needed a deep cleaning with scraping beneath the gums and all this extra work. I refused and only allowed a standard cleaning. I got into Family Smiles within a couple hours and had a 2nd opinion with perfect results!!!! I had even purchased the plan at the new corporate place, but I don't even care at this point about losing that money, I will not be going back there. Family Smiles is not a corporate business and see the patient as a person rather than "money and unnecessary procedures". Thank you Family Smiles!!!!!
