"Dr. Iqbal and the team literally saved my smile a few years ago, at a time when the dentist was the last place I wanted to be going. The whole staff was incredibly patient with me in explaining every little detailand worked with me on a plan to have all of the necessary work done. I no longer dread going to the dentist and the staff continues to be helpful and kind every time I visit. I have recommended dental works to many friends and family members and will continue to do so for anyone looking to have as pleasant a dental experience as one can hope for!"- K.K. / Google / Sep 11, 2017
"I struggled to find the right dentist for a year before I found DentalWorks in the loop. I was hesitant to trust just any office to handle my root canal and tooth extraction. Dr. Shah is amazing. She's kind and patient when explaining treatment options. The staff is lovely too. I was terrified of dentists. Terrified. Now, I feel I have an office that encourages me to take care of my dental hygiene - something I had neglected for years because I couldn't find someone I trusted. Great job guys!"- S.B. / Yelp / Sep 10, 2017
