Our caring dentists and staff endeavor to make every visit a great experience for all of our patients. Read below to see what our patients are saying about their experience at Willow Pass Dental Care.
"I haven't been to the dentist in years because of my prior dental experiences. However, when I went to Willow Pass Dental, my view changed. I had a good experience from having my appointment set, receiving a reminder call, having my teeth cleaned and talking to Dr. Khan about the next steps. Also, I like to give kudos to Carol because she is an awesome dental hygienist."
"It had been years since I'd seen a dentist when I first saw Dr. Khazaie. He took my fear of pain seriously. The exam was informative, the treatment plan was reasonable and the care was excellent. I have been a patient for over a year now and have had outstanding care. Shabnam, my preferred hygienist, even polished my teeth twice to make sure I had a beautiful smile for my pending job interview. Thanks Shabi, I got the job!"
"I just got out of the clinic for a second opinion and I am highly impressed with this clinic. First, I called in to make an appointment and the lady made sure to accommodate the day and time that would work for me. When I got into the clinic, the ladies in the reception area were nice and friendly. It's a different feel from the other clinic that I've been visiting. They charged me a fairly cheap amount for an exam, cleaning and xray.
The dentist's assistant was also very calm and caring which made me feel very comfortable. The hygienist came next for my cleaning. She was professional and helpful. Finally, the dentist saw me and answered all my questions (I tend to ask a lot of questions!) He made sure that I was ok upon leaving. I am highly satisfied with my visit and from now on, this will be my primary clinic!!!"
"I have been going to Willow Pass Dental Care (formerly Dental Specialty) since 2006. I have always received great care from the front desk, from my caring dental hygienist Shabnam Sharifi, my wonderful Prosthodontist Reza Khazaie who did my implants, his assistant Nancy and the ladies that manage the appointments, to the dental treatment plan. I couldn't ask for a greater Dental team. Their technology is always improving so makes going to one place much easier. I admire Dr. Reza for donating his time to his Mission of helping children from abroad that might not have access to dental care. I feel it is worthwhile if you are searching for a new dental team for yourself or your children to consider them."
"I've been a patient here for many years, and have always received excellent dental care. My hygienist Shabnam is the best!! She is very thorough, yet gentle. I have sensitive teeth and she is careful to not cause me discomfort. AND, she is the sweetest person! 🙂 I don't have need to see Dr. Reza often, as I have pretty healthy teeth 🙂 , but he has done repair work on old fillings and such and is excellent. I highly recommend this office."
"It was my first time visiting Willow Pass Dental Care last week. I had an emergency and the office staff was beyond accommodating and helpful in getting me seen asap. Upon arrival the dental assistant took me in and completed a series of X-rays. Her knowledge, friendliness, and advice was way beyond my expectations and beyond any service I have ever received at a dentists office before. It is because of her that I had such an incredible experience. The dentist recommended that I follow up by seeing a specialist. Because I will be going out of town in a week, he was able to get me an appointment 2 business days later. The accommodation was incredible. I also love that the primary dentist gives back by going around the world giving to underserved communities. Overall, so far, my experiences here have been unparalleled."
"Shabnam is the best dental hygienist I have ever had! She is so thorough and takes extra care in making sure all plaque is removed with no pain. She always ensures you are comfortable and she just has a great professional demeanor. My children and I have been going to Willow Pass Dental Care for years. My daughter was very frightened to get dental work done and this was the ONLY place she felt comfortable. All of the staff takes extra care to make sure all of the children's fears are limited so my daughter actually wants to come back every 6 months. I highly recommend Willow Pass Dental Care for your whole family!"
"I have always had great care at Willow Pass Dental. Never had a delay in seeing the hygienist or dentist. Easy to make appointments. Everyone is professional yet very friendly. Front desk staff is very efficient. Shabnam Sharifi, the hygienist I usually see, is friendly, kind, and does an excellent job."
"I had a very good experience with Willow Pass Dental Care with Dr. Reza's staff and the quality of work he has done on my teeth."
"I have been going to Willow Pass Dental Care for a couple of years. I have received great care and feel that they truly care. During my last appointment they took the time to show me the process of my procedure. I would highly recommend anyone who is looking for a dental care provider."
"I came in for a cleaning, and with a toothache. My hygienist reported the concern, and all three dentists conferred/agreed that the tooth was so badly infected (because of a cracked root) that it needed to be extracted. Immediately, arrangements were made, and the painless procedure was complete within a half an hour. During the entire time they explained the details, answered my questions, were re-assuring, made sure I was comfortable/not in pain, and kind. They worked like a well-oiled machine ~ the consummate professionals!"
"Willow Pass Dental Care is one big skyscraper of awesomeness. From the staff to my primary orthodontist, Dr. Perera, they have been a godsend. Prior to 2 years ago, I was getting treatment through Western Dental. Long story short, they were horrible and even pressured me into getting a tooth pulled that should've never been pulled in the first place.
Dr. Perera took on my case and used every trick in the book to close the gap where the missing tooth use to be, corrected my alignment and made sure I left with a perfect smile just in time for my college graduation. I am so thankful for them and I recommend them to anybody, including my brother, who might be looking into braces.
You guys are awesome!!!"
"It was very good. I will go as far to say my experience dealing with this office has been wonderful. I was seen right away no long wait times. The office was very hi-tech clean and very comfortable. I was walked through what was gonna happen to me in detail. I was assured that if I needed to take a break at any time we can stop, that would never be a problem. I was told just to let me know if anything was bothering me. I was very confident and comfortable with the person that was working on me. In the past, I have had several very very bad experiences with other Dentist offices....I am so very glad I found this office everyone is very nice, very professional and courteous. My experience with my two visits so far has been just great. Each time I left the office I was very happy with the work that was done. They don't push unnecessary work you really don't need on you. Nor rush through the procedures they are doing. They did a great job with little to no pain. I'm very happy."
"Great group of professionals that make going to the dentist fun for everyone. I usually don't do ratings but my seven year old loves this place. As for me, they have motivated me to do better in flossing by giving me advice and little reminder tricks to floss every day. Overall, they're Awesome!"
"If I could give this place ten stars, I would. Assume each of the five is equal to two and that’ll work. Due to a very bad experience with a shady dentist when I was young, I haven’t seen a dentist in almost 20 years. I cracked a tooth on some popcorn on a Wednesday and, trusting blind luck, picked the dentist closest to work. They were willing to see me the very next day! And goodness, did I strike gold with this place. Everyone from the receptionists to the dental assistants to my own dentist (who wanted to be an ace fighter pilot but became an ace dentist instead) was patient, kind, and unfailingly polite. All my past anxieties were wiped away and I now have a new dental office to call my own. I will be seeing them for all my dental needs in future. Do yourself a favor and give them a try. They are very much worth it."
"Going to be honest, I greatly dislike going to the dentist. For me, this was as good as a trip to the dentist could have gone. Dr. Khazaie was professional, kind, and made sure I experienced no pain when doing my filling. Bonus: no condescending remarks about how I wasn't flossing enough."
"Very satisfied and grateful to both Dr. Reza Khazaie and hygienist Nancy as well as the front office and endodontics staff. I was naturally very worried about my root canal and the entire process but Dr. R’s calm manner and willingness to explain each step helped me to know what to expect. The staff was always responsive to my needs and Nancy was especially sensitive to the fact that my pain threshold is low. Am very glad that I made the switch from a different provider."
"I love this place! I have been going here forever and I never plan on changing that. They really make going to the dentist a pleasant experience. The front desk always greets me with a smile and know my name! =) The hygienists and doctors always make me feel comfortable while I’m there and they are affordable. Anybody who complains about billing has not done enough research on expenses of dental treatment! They are very fair here and the friendly environment they provide makes it even that much more worth it! lol"
"We moved to this office for our dental HMO after trying two other offices that were on our HMO list. Great place!!!! My son is 3 and had a wonderful experience with pediatric dentist Dr. Luz Cuellar. They have a full pediatric area and do it right. My son loved it and really is excited about brushing his teeth at home now! I saw Dr. Taimur Khan on the adult side of the clinic. The hygienist did a very thorough cleaning for me, and Dr. Khan did a very thorough exam. We will be sticking with Willow Pass Dental Care for the whole family. Wonderful care. The other HMO accepting offices we went to tried to upsell us extra services and rush us through the appointments — this office did not! They just provided quality care, which is much appreciated."
"Our entire family has been a part of this dental practice for ten years now. We first came to Dental Specialty when my oldest daughter had to have a crown placed on a molar. We were stressed out about the procedure but the Pediatric Dentist assured me that our daughter would be safe and comfortable. She was right and we haven’t had any serious dental issues since. From cleanings (both child and adult) to an implant and Invisalign, we have experienced it all.
Dr. Perera is such a sweet Orthodontist. She is very professional and takes the time to explain everything from initial photos needed, the tray process, and everything to the retainer (which I will receive in two weeks)! I highly recommend Dr. Perera.
Dr. Reza Khazaie is very professional and on time with my appointments. I am very afraid of dental work, but he always helps ease my stress level and was able to convince me to have a dental implant placed, this was not an easy decision for me. But Dr. Reza has helped me along the way and I should have my crown placed by Christmas!
Dr. Reza’s assistant is also lovely and helpful. She makes me feel special and like family. It has been a pleasure getting to know she and my hygienist over the years. Our entire family has had exceptional service and have never had any hidden fees or bills. We recommend Dental Specialty Group (Willow Pass Dental Care)."
"Willow Pass Dental Care is Amazing! I have to say this dental office and the staff are so kind and caring they understand. I was terrified of the dentist I don't know why but when I came in for my consultation with Dr. Reza omg he was understanding and caring. I have literally been in 5 times this month of June and I have left with a smile. I brought my daughter and son also and yet again Amazing staff and service. I feel confident now with my mouth and smile. I recommend this group to everyone, my friends and family. If anyone is looking for a great dental place and amazing Dr., go here. Dr. Reza and his team are overly amazing and you will be happy."
"I was fortunate to come upon Willow Pass Dental Care (formerly Dental Specialty Group) through a referral from another dentist for some emergent pain I had been experiencing. Dr. Khazaie was most capable, emphathetic, and professional. His staff, both front office, and dental back office, are also top notch! My initial expectation for my visit was just to get some respite from my pain, but I ended my visit quite blown away and totally stoked as I had found my new "dental home" where I felt comfortable (and I'm one of those people who don't necessarily look forward to going to Doctor appointments). If the previous sentences were not succinct enough for you...TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!!"
"New to this practice for pediatric treatment. The office is clean and staff is kind and professional. It was a relief my daughter was treated like a superstar during her visit and the wall of prizes made the office one-of-a-kind. I would recommend this practice to friends and family living in the area or do not mind the drive out for some quality and high-grade service."
We have been going to this dentist for years. The service and care they provide is exceptionally good. Everything is very clean and neat. They always greet us with a smile and do their best to accommodate our needs. We actually moved to Alameda two years ago but still go to this dentist because of how great they are! They have a pediatric side and an adult side to accommodate the needs of our whole family. I highly recommend them to anyone!!
--- Veronica G., Concord, CA | 5-star Yelp review, 2/24/16
Dr. Khazaie will go above and beyond to make you satisfied. He knows what he's doing and he is very knowledgeable in the field of prosthodontics. I am still working with him on my dental implants dentures project and so far I haven't faced a problem.
--- Firas S., Martinez, CA | 5-star Yelp review, 2/24/16
Very friendly staff that keep their appointment times. It's also very convenient because adult dentistry is on one side and pediatric on the other side. My girls love their dentist! They've recently added orthodontics to their services.
---Brandi D., Concord, CA | 5-star Yelp review 12/30/15
Me and my family have been patients here for several years and we love and appreciate the dentists and office staff. You get what you pay for and they provide quality services and genuinely care about your oral health. They have corrected a lot of poor dental work done at previous dental offices and are totally honest and trustworthy.
---Pepper J., Pittsburg, CA | 5-star Yelp review 12/9/15
This office has wonderful front and back staff. My children love this office and has by far the best pediatric dentist Dr Mahsa. The Dr is very sweet and has a lot of patients with our children not only that the work she does is out standing Our experience with this office is outstanding!! We are greeted warmly they make our kids feel very special. The assistants in back are also great Sarah and Vicky. I also see the hygienist for my cleanings who is also outstanding and very gentle. Dr Reza Is also outstanding in his work and is ver concerned of his patients needs. I recommend all my family and friends to this office. They do everything there.
---Mickey J., Pittsburg, CA | 5-star Yelp review 10/23/15
My two kids had cleanings back to back. We were called in right away. They are very calm and gentle with the kids. They were also able to calm down my 18 month old who can be tough at times! After the appointment they made the kids feel very special. They took pictures of the kids for the no cavity wall. Also each child was able to pick a toy and each received a balloon. As always, another great experience. Thanks!
---Inaaya K. | 9/1/15
Best cleaning procedure than any other dentist office.
---Saundra T. | 9/18/15
Dr. Khazaie treats each and every one of his patients with the same gentle, caring attitude and superb professionalism. I am always bowled over with his kindness and generosity. The treatment that he gives that is so special to me is nothing out of the ordinary for him. I have never before had such a positive and confident feeling about a relationship with a doctor.
---Mariam N. | Walnut Creek, CA
This dental group has always been kind, patient and friendly to my children. Our experience with them has always been positive and thus my children have never feared the dentist. In fact, they are always excited to go. Thanks for making it simple and easy to keep my children in good dental health. A very grateful mom.
---Melissa Benson | 8/18/15
The competence, friendliness, and professionalism of Dr. Khazaie’s staff is far above anything I have ever seen in my 50 years of going to dentists.
--- John G.
I would recommend this office as everyone was professional and the hygienist did a wonderful job and Sherie was very efficient.
---Joanne D. | 8/7/15
Most people don’t like a dental visit but this group really make the experience pleasant and very comfortable.
---Annette R. | 7/31/15
Great service and the same for the staff working there.
---Patrick P. | 7/30/15
Professional, friendly, respectful, and compassionate is how my family regards Dental Specialty Group (now Willow Pass Dental Care). We appreciate how they take care of us.
---Kim L. | 7/25/15
Dr. Reza is the best. Very gentle. I had no pain with my implant. It was fast and easy. Thank you Dr. Reza.
