Rate and Review Ben Amini, DDS
By: Gregory T
Dr. Amini runs an excellent practice. The group keeps up to date on the frequent improvements in the field of dentistry, and learns the new techniques, materials, and tools for the benefit of their patients. One example is their x-ray equipment, which is fully digital, cuts radiation by 80% relative to traditional dental x-rays, and is much more easily stored and referenced in future appointments. The patient can see the clear digital pictures of any facet of any tooth in question on the large flat panel screen that is conveniently attached to the dental chair. The patient can then see exactly what the dentist is talking about. They also have a very broad selection of music, news and sports via Sirius Satellite and comfortable headphones to listen while your dental work is being done. The staff is cheerful, responsive, efficient and professional. Five stars for the Doctor!
“Walked out with a crown in 2.5 hours”
By: Deborah R
After not being to the denstist for 7 plus years I have the staff and Dr Ben G. Amini to have a great deal of pride in his work and with his patients I would receommend Dr. Amini to anyone who is looking for a stellar dentist... he has a great sense of humor, is extremely knowledgable, prompt and pays great attention to detail... I love my new crown which he scuptured in his office was well worth the addtional 150.00 which I did not even think about, you will not be disappointed he truly does exceptional work.
By: Debra B
I'm most likely every dentists nightmare. I need nitris when having anything done unless Dr. Amini is able to gently talk me out of it (like getting my teeth cleaned!) Dr Amini and his staff are the best, they know how to treat even the most difficult cases (like me) with patience, care and understanding. I would recommend Dr Amini to everyone.
“Respectful of unemployment/uninsured”
By: Peter M
Being uninsured but needing a new crown, I tried to access the city's low-cost clinics. It was clear that care would be lacking & weeks away, I called Citident and asked for consideration of my situation. They were respectful, helped me set up a plan and even trimmed a few costs. I still got great care and the Dr. even provided some preemptive treatment, as well. Great experience.
“They are all great!”
I have been going to this practice for over 10 years. I began with Dr. Amini and now see Dr. Sud. Both are great and both reflect what I believe are the values of their practice -- taking care of clients with a calm, patient, friendly, educational, and sensitive manner. I always feel well looked after actually look forward to my appointments. Anyone who doesn't like going to the dentist should go to this practice!
“2 crowns - 1 day!”
The technology has finally evolved. I had 2 all porcelain crowns done while I waited. They have 3D software that lets them adjust the shape of the crown on the screen, and then it is milled from a solid block almost instantly. It takes another 20 minutes to "bake", and the final crowns were put in right away. So no more temporary crowns falling out while you wait for another appointment. Everyone was kind, efficient and skillful.
“Highly recommend this office”
I have been going to Citident for years and have always been impressed by Dr. Amini, the associate dentists, and the staff at this office. All are professional, pleasant, and friendly. I also like the fact that the office is on the cutting edge of technology! Dr. Amini and the associate dentist take the time to explain in detail and simple terms my conditions, my options, cost and time frame. I feel that I can fully trust that I am getting the best dental care. Feeling I never got with my prior dentist. I highly recommend Citident!
THE FACILITIES ARE CLEAN, BRIGHT,UP TO DATE AND PLEASANT. THE STAFF WERE WELCOMING, THOROUGH, PROFESSIONAL, AND PLEASANT. THE DOCTOR WAS EXPERIENCED, THOROUGH, PATIENT, ALERT, CARING, KNOWLEDGABLE, AND DELICATE IN HANDLING MY CASE. AT 61 YEARS OF AGE I'VE BEEN TO QUITE A FEW DENTISTS IN VARIOUS CITIES AROUND THE WORLD, IN MY TIME. DR. AMINI'S SETUP AND PRACTICE HAS BEEN ONE OF THE BEST TWO I'VE BEEN TO.
By: Tomas P
I had my cracked filling extracted in preparation for a new crown in one of my molars. Dr. Amini took precautions and gave me two shots of novocane so I would not feel the drill as he was working. I still felt the drill as Dr. Amini drilled closer to the nerve, but after the initial drilling was done, the pain subsided quickly.
After hearing stories from others about how painful getting an implant was I was nervous about the procedure. Amazingly, the whole procedure was completely painless (except for the "pinch" of the Novocain shot). The process was explained in detail prior to and during the procedure and the entire staff were caring and attentive. This was one of several procedures I have had at Citident and all have been expertly completed - so I have great peace of mind returning for routine and particular dental work. They are great!
“Good Fast Dental Service”
By: Michael S
My visit yesterday was very fast. Not only did I have a cleaning, but I had two old fillings replace and two other teeth coated and I was out the door in less than an hour! The price seemed somewhat high, even after insurance coverage, but the service was fast and I felt NOTHING (no pain or discomfort).
By: Frank M
I had not idea how dentistry has changed, and very much for the better, until I visited Dr. Amini. He has the latest "digital" technology, combined state of the art dental care, a clean, modern and comfortable location, outstanding service and meticulous follow up. This is the best modern dentistry has to offer.
“A Reason to Smile”
By: Sandra H
Are you one of those individuals who cringes at the very thought of seeing a dentist? Do you avoid those vital 6 month check-ups? One of the top 5 fears in my life was visiting the dentist. I literally would experience panic attacks, until I switched to Dr. Ben Amini. He is the most patient, informative dentist I have met. He understood my level of anxiety, and used the latest in technology to make my experience a pleasant one. I transformed from a frenzied woman to a person who easily falls asleep in the chair. All of the Citident dentists are awesome! The staff is the most kind group of people I've ever met. I can honestly say that I look forward to my dental appointments. I always walk away with a huge smile on my face.
