Awesome dentists, hygienists, and staff! Fillings and cleanings are as painless as such dental work can be. And the front-office staff goes the extra mile to explain the details of insurance and billing--I've always known exactly how much a procedure will cost before it is done. Great dental experience!

I'm currently on travel sabbatical and am visiting old friends in Somerville. I was walking past the office on my way to the market and decided to give them a call because I have a chipped tooth that's been bothering me. The entire office staff were professional, prompt, and transparent! I was so impressed with how quickly they were able to schedule me in and how honest they were with pricing. This was VERY refreshing as a dollar goes a long way while traveling. My hygienist did a great job cleaning my teeth and showed me something with my gums I've never been shown before! The dentist (whose name I can't recall) did a wonderful job providing me quick respite from my abrasive chipped tooth! I highly recommend their office! Thanks again!
I have been going to them since the beginning of 2017, before that I have not been going to the dentist for 7 years. They did a deep cleaning and fixed my cavity and then regular cleaning since.Last week I did a root canal with Dr. Alvi. I was extremely nervous about the procedure, I have heard horror stories about it, about how painful it will get afterwards and you can get severe infection and blablabla. Dr. Alvi was very nice and understanding when I expressed my concerns. The procedure was quite long, about 2 hrs, but I did not feel anything during it. and afterwards! My coworkers were a little shocked the next day when I told them I did a root canal the day before and was totally fine and functional the next day! Very happy about the process.Also the people who handle insurance and payment are very professional and patient. They go out of their way to find the best way for me to get the service I need with the least out of pocket money. So far I have dealt with 3 front desk ladies (sorry can't remember their names), they are all good!All the hygienists who worked on my teeth are very good as well! The environment is clean and pleasant!Overall I am very satisfied about their services, and will definitely continue going there unless I need to move very far away!

West Somerville Dental has proven to provide excellent dental services to me for more than five years, from the standard preventative cleaning services, to replacing two teeth with crowns. Dr. Alvi is easy to communicate with and the front office staff is always pleasant and responsive. Christina is very knowledgeable and knows the ins and outs of how to process claims through insurance. I have recommended them to both friends and family members, and continue to do so, based on the high quality dentistry and customer service they provide.

As the previous reviewers have documented, this is a well run operation which still has that human touch which provides comfort in what could otherwise be an intrusive procedure. On this past appointment, I had a cleaning with a hygienist who has a gifted touch of bringing my teeth to their highest potential, while teaching me on how to maintain this level of quality between visits.
