“I LOVE THAT ENTIRE TEAM!! I AM A FEARFUL PATIENT THAT USUALLY NEEDS FAMILY SUPPORT AND MEDICATION JUST TO WALK THROUGH THE DOOR OF A DENTAL OFFICE. THAT IS STILL THE CASE FOR VISITS THAT REQUIRE INJECTIONS AND PROCEDURES, BUT YESTERDAY AS 50-YEAR- OLD WOMAN I WAS ABLE TO GO BY MYSELF FOR MY BI-ANNUAL CLEANING. THAT WAS PROGRESS AND TRUST IN MY DOCTOR, HYGIENIST AND TECHS.”
“I HAVE HAD MANY DENTISTS THROUGHOUT MY LIFE AND HAVE ALWAYS HATED GOING TO THE DENTIST. AT THIS POINT I ALSO HAVE A LOT OF DENTAL ISSUES, SO I MUST HAVE SOMEONE WHO CAN TAKE ON THIS CHALLENGE AND DR. FARROKHI IS THE BEST! I HAVE RECOMMENDED THIS PRACTICE – ESPECIALLY TO THOSE WHO HAVE HAD BAD EXPERIENCES IN THE PAST LIKE ME, OR ANXIETY ABOUT GOING TO THE DENTIST. EVERYONE AGREES THAT THIS IS A VERY SPECIAL PRACTICE NOT ONLY FOR THE QUALITY OF DR. FARROKHI’S WORK, BUT BECAUSE OF THE WAY YOU ARE TREATED THROUGHOUT THE BOOKING AND VISIT.”
“IT WAS EXTREMELY COMFORTING WHEN I HAD DENTAL CARE AT SOUTH ORANGE FAMILY DENTISTRY YESTERDAY. THE VISIT WAS ONE OF MY FIRST ENTRY INTO ACCESSING THE COVID 19 HEALTH CARE SYSTEM. DR FARROKHI AND HER STAFF ALWAYS HAD A VERY HIGH LEVEL OF STERILE/INFECTION CONTROL MEASURES, HOWEVER, NOW THEY ARE ABSOLUTELY ABOVE AND BEYOND MY EXPECTATIONS OF MAKING SURE THAT INFECTION CONTROL IS MAINTAINED. BEST DENTAL PRACTICE I HAVE EVERY BEEN TREATED BY. I HAVE BEEN A PATIENT OVER 12 YEARS.”
