I recently took my 9 year old twins to this dental office, and I have to say the entire staff and especially Dr. Pragna took great care of my kids. From the moment we walked in, the front office staff were warm and welcoming.Dr. Pragna was simply amazing, and had a great experience, and knew exactly how to make the entire process as stress-free and comfortable as possible. Dr. Pragna was friendly, patient, and took the time to explain everything to me in detail, making sure that I was completely comfortable and informed throughout my visit.Overall, I would highly recommend this dental office who is looking for a caring, experienced team who truly know how to make their patients feel at ease. The front office, dental assistant, and dentist were all top-notch, and I couldn't have been happier with the care my kids received.After the visit both my girls asked if we could always go to see Dr. Pragna for their dentals visits.If you're looking for a great dental experience, look no further than this wonderful practice.

I am delighted to share my glowing review for Dr. Pragna Malkaram, who has truly demonstrated exceptional expertise and professionalism in the field of dentistry. From teeth hygiene to extractions, fillings, and even the creation of a sleep denture bite appliance, Dr. Pragna has consistently delivered outstanding results.Not only did Dr. Pragna Malkaram prioritize my oral health, but they also provided thorough and gentle cleanings, ensuring my teeth were in their best possible condition. Their attention to detail and commitment to maintaining a healthy oral hygiene routine truly made a difference in my overall dental wellness.During my visit, I required extractions and fillings, which can be anxiety-inducing procedures. However, Dr. Dr. Pragna Malkaram’s calming demeanor and expert touch put me at ease throughout the entire process. Their precision and skill were evident, and the extractions and fillings were completed with remarkable efficiency and minimal discomfort.One of the highlights of my experience with Dr. Pragna Malkaram was the creation of a sleep denture bite appliance. This appliance not only improved my sleep quality but also alleviated the symptoms of teeth grinding. Dr. Pragna took the time to understand my needs and designed a custom appliance that perfectly fit my mouth, providing me with a restful night's sleep and enhanced oral health.Furthermore, the entire staff at Dr. Pragna Malkaram’s practice was warm, welcoming, and professional. From the front desk to the dental assistants, everyone made me feel comfortable and valued as a patient. The office was clean and well-maintained, creating a pleasant atmosphere for each visit.I cannot recommend Dr. Pragna Malkaram highly enough. Their commitment to excellence, passion for oral health, and the remarkable results they achieve make them an exceptional dentist. Whether you require routine teeth hygiene, extractions, fillings, or specialized treatments like sleep denture bite appliances, Dr. Pragna Malkaram is undoubtedly the dentist to trust.

The staff continues to impress me with their knowledge of procedures. I called to schedule an appointment & when Suzanne offered to get me in today I hesitated because I thought I needed to take an antibiotic first. She said “I don’t think it’s necessary for today but I will double check”. She was correct. I got in today and Dr. Hassell set me on the right path.
