Went in for a scheduled deep cleaning. Today they worked on the right side and this is EXACTLY
how my visit went. I walked in about 9:34 am to a pleasant greeting from Stella who called me by name (always gives you that important feeling). Right beside her was Dorin with a pleasant hello as well. Today I was Dorin's appointment. She was the dental hygienist working my grill. We moved into the room as I got comfortable on the electric recliner / dental chair. A fancy bib was wrapped nicely around my neck and Dorin began to take some pocket measurements. Before getting started, a professional photographer came in to take my picture. Not sure how anyone knew I was going to be there, but I am glad the bib was removed beforehand helping me look my best. I am going allow them to use this photo as my profile picture for my file. Dorin began to do her thing and before I knew it she was all done. She is a professional in every sense. Very clear with procedure explanations and very attentive when it comes to your comfort level. If I was to feel any pain, I was to raise my hand as her indicator. At one point I thought that would feel some discomfort and scrunched my eyebrows as a first reaction. She immediately asked if I was ok. Now that is attentive! Dorin made my time on the chair pleasant. Stella was bumping some 80's jams like Soft Cell Tainted Love, which help the time pass. Thank you Dorin! On my way to check out, Dr. Hakham said hello and I asked him about a small issue from my last visit. The Dr. Took a look and took care of it on the spot. Now that is service :) Had the pleasure of running into Diane. She is cheerful and full of smiles like the day I met her. Stella, Diane, myself, and another cheerful staff member talked for a bit about a special edition office candle. I asked which one of them smelled good and they blamed the candle (modest). Another great experience was had. Until next time ~
I've been to many dentists before and have pretty much had an unpleasant experience. I even went
to a dentist who told me I had a cavity when I didn't. A friend referred me to Dr. Hakham after I told him about my tooth pain. After I called, they were able to immediately get me in to see the dentist. When I walked in, I was pleasantly surprised to see how clean and updated the office was. The gal up front was extremely professional when I was greeted. The gal who took x rays was very pleasant. I also had a deep cleaning done by Doreen - the dental hygienist. It was painless! After my exam, the dentist over everything and explained what I need to do for healthier teeth. I would barely make a dentist about once year but I'll definitely be seeing Dr. Hakham for my bi annual checkups! Thank you Dr. Hakham and your staff for a rare, pleasant dentist visit!
I’ve been looking for a new dentist to go to since my biggest issue with my previous dentist was waiting
over 30 minutes to be seen. Some friends of mine raved about Dr. Hakham and his entire staff. I decided to give them a try and scheduled for an appointment Tuesday, they took x-rays, examined my teeth, etc. (I had not been to the dentist in 2 years). I was truly impressed with how well they respect your time, my appointment was at 8:30am and they took me in exactly at that time. Today was day 1 of deep cleaning and let me say I am one who typically dislikes the dentist because of the pain and how uncomfortable I get... NOT HERE! The entire time the hygienist kept asking me if I was okay and kept my mind off the deep cleaning. Dr. Hakham is very friendly and is always willing to answer any questions one may have regarding the procedures that are taking place. Let’s just say I am excited for Tuesday and the deep cleaning of my left side (who would’ve thought I’d ever say that). The staff and Dr. Hakham have truly have made me feel completely relaxed and at ease.
Going to the dentist every 4 months for a checkup is not a fun thing to do, but Dr. Hakham and his staff
make it such a pleasant experience. I am always greeted with a smile from every staff members and I am treated with the upmost care. I started going to the office many years ago because it was Dr. Abrams, and I miss him dearly, but I can honestly say I am pleased with Dr. Hakham. He is very knowledgeable and is very thorough with his examinations.
Dr. Hakham has a gentle hand and a calm yet confident demeanor. He explains your dental issues well
and shows a genuine concern that you understand. All of the hygienists and fellow doctors are wonderful. Diane sets your mind at ease and speaks highly of Dr. Hakham's experience and craftsmanship when having a more involved procedure. I am especially indebted to Dorin who has done most of my x-rays, measurements, and cleanings (over a dozen now) and always been thorough and kind. Usually the first and last person you see in the clinic is Stella who has been so helpful in arranging appointments, helping with insurance questions, and billing that I cannot say enough great things about her. All of my appointments at Dr. Hakham's clinic have been on time and sometimes even early if I arrive earlier than expected. I highly recommend Dr. Hakham for your dental needs.
I guess like a lot of other people, I'm not so fond of visiting the dentist. But, you got to take care
of yourself and your body because you only have one. After a lot of procrastination, I paid a visit to one the most caring and friendly dentists that I have the pleasure to come across. Dr. David Hakham has a calming effect on even the most uneasy patients (me). He is very knowledgeable (USC dental school grad) and puts patient care and satisfaction ahead of everything else. His staff are very efficient as well and truly take care of their patient's needs. So, if you are in need of some dental care, pay Dr. Hakham a visit. I am sure you will be surprisingly satisfied.
From the outside the office is in a plain building but inside this dental office has modern equipment,
which makes for a good dental experience. Dr. Hakham and all the staff are professional and thorough. I have sensitive teeth and they are careful when I get my services, making my experience less stressful. Both Dr. Hakham and my dental hygienist, Joanna have given excellent oral hygiene advice, which has helped improve the health of my teeth. I have full confidence in recommending Dr. Hakham to family, friends and anyone looking for a great dentist.
Been going to western dental for years and we were just not happy with their service anymore so we
switched to Doctor David Hakham and we couldn't be happier. They take pride in being ready for your appointment and not making you wait 30 minutes after your appointment time. Me and my family are really happy about the switch and look forward to every appointment we are scheduled. I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a good dentist. Their work is good and their priority is you.
Dr. David Hakham is a top notch professional dentist who is both extremely knowledgeable and
personable. He treats every patient with kindness and respect. Dr. Hakham's assistants are also very professional and make the daunting task of things like cleanings seem less alarming. Dr. Hakham's office staff is also professional and kind and treat all patients with respect. Thank you for taking care of us after a recent emergency incident.
First things first. I had a previous Dentistry that I attended for about 2 years prior to meeting
Dr. Hakham. The reasons why I left that dentist was because every time that I called it went to voicemail stating that they would get "back to me", which of course they never did. Also, I asked my previous Dentist that I wanted a mouth guard for my mouth during the night time (which once again of course they would ignore my request). So, long story short I left. Since, talking to people who never get back to you is like talking to a wall and for me that was not professional at all. Talking to my friend Alma about the amazing dentist that she loves to go to and gave me the phone number to call this office. So, since she spoke so highly of him I wanted to see how true it was. I previously came to this dentist a long time ago with my children who are now all grown up. Once my friend Alma gave me the number I called right away! The receptionist Stella was so sweet and kind. So, that alone made an impact. And when I went to my first dentist appointment with this new Doctor that I haven't met was so extremely polite and made me feel welcomed. Not only is this office professional, but they gave me my mouth guard that I've been wanting for two years. He had it ready as soon as possible, the same day I had an appointment for my cleaning and the mouth guard. This dentist has the top notch customer service, and I would never go anywhere else. He is so amazing that this is my very first yelp review and I would want to encourage anyone who sees this review to not think twice about going to him. If you are reading this Doctor thank you for being on top of it, and giving me the best customer service I've ever had.
