Reviews for Mohammed Kadhem

This place is amazing!!! From the front desk to the doctors and all the techs and assistance! Everyone, no matter how busy it was, everyone kept a smile on their face and enjoyed their time with each person who they were caring for. My fiance had an emergency tooth removal, and they made it so easy, breezy,… and believe or not, enjoyable.

Dr. Kadhem and his assistant Juan were SO VERY PATIENT with me. I have to use nitrous and Dr. Kadhem would work for a little, right to the edge where I thought I might start to hyperventilate and then take a break, help another patient, then come back. It worked so well for me. When I went back for the crown, I was crying and they were AGAIN super super nice. I highly recommend this team.

Dr. Kadem and Maria did an awesome job. The thing that I love is I don’t feel I’m just the next person in line. They are so gentle and take time and care and talk to you about things you can do. They discuss a plan to take care of your mouth including making appointment while you are there for what you will need. I recommend to everyone they go in to see them and start your own dental heath path!
