My daughter had her 1st dental appointment and it was wonderful. There was no waiting. From the front desk staff greeting you with smiles to the wonderful assistants taking great xrays . Dr. Gowda explained everything carefully and with great chair side manner. The Hygienist was gently and did a fantastic job. I would refer all my friends, family and co-workers to share in this wonderful experience.

Scheduled an appointment 6 months in advance. Didn't make the appointment and she put $50 in collections against my name. And that's how she treated a new patient getting basic cleaning. Stay away.

About Front Desk: Also pushed sales.

I had a crown put in and I get my teeth cleaned every 6 months. No pain at all I do not have insurance, I find her services very affordable. Beautiful clean facility Office staff is very friendly, I love her waiting room with specialty coffees and fresh fruit. Dr. Gowda is the best dentist I have ever gone to in my 64 years, she is very caring. I would and have recommended her many times.

Dr. Gowda is wonderful at what she does! She is always attentive and addresses any concerns that I have. I am an Ortho patient and have had the best experience thus far. Additionally, her office staff are welcoming and very accomodating. I have referred several people who also report being happy with their experience.

I had intermittent sensitivity in a molar which was affecting my ability to chew and drink liquids. I knew the filling in the tooth was large and very old, had been replaced in the past, and I was holding my breath expecting the usual recommendation to cap it, a very expensive procedure. Instead, Dr. Gowda said she preferred to save a tooth when possible, and suggested a porcelain inlay. I very much appreciated this approach, and also her quiet and professional demeanor. She was very concerned that I experience no pain. Her office is beautiful, and I could watch CNN on a screen above my head during the procedure! I would highly recommend her.

About Hygienist: Later I went back for a whitening procedure (Zoom) and was very impressed not only with the results but the knowledge and efficiency of her staff who accomplished the procedure.

Suffering from dental phobia lead me to search for a Dentist I could trust. Dr Gowda was recommended, my first visit was wonderful. She made sure I was relaxed and never in any pain. Great experience all around. I go in every six months for cleaning without any fear, she is the best.

I had a crooked tooth on my bottom front teeth and she was able to correct this with braces. I had braces as a teenager but this went much faster and results were great. I also got veneers on my top teeth and they look perfect. Dr. Gowda has done a wonderful job taking care of my teeth and I would recommend her to anyone.

About Hygienist: Her hygienist is wonderful. Does a perfect job and is also painless.

I am a total Dentist phobe! Dr Gowda and her staff made me so comfortable. I know I can be a handful but never once did she or her staff make me feel silly. I really can't say enough good things about this Dentist. From the front desk staff right up to Dr Gowda, perfect!

My experience with Dr. Gowda I would have to say was the most horrible experience that I have ever had out of my 30 years of living. She was very rude and impatient when I came to her office to get some dental work done. When she asked if I was going to pay for my work up front and I responded no she gave me a very nasty look and then proceeded to her office, not keeping in mind that I was having over thousands of dollars of work done. She did not give me a comfortable feeling when I first arrived and I knew why once I left. One thing that I can say is that her staff was very professional and kind, unlike Dr. Gowda. I wouldn't recommend her to anyone I know.
