I’m a client here and I like the people that do my teeth, i’m 15, and I love Zuzana, she is a great dental assistant, and every time she has done my teeth, she has been gentle with my teeth, and tries to make me less nervous while she is working! She also likes my plush seals!

Dr. Alvi and team are great. I am not the best at taking care of my teeth or prioritizing dental appointments. They continue to remind me pleasantly and never judge or scold when I finally do come in. Treatment is fast and thorough, and pain prevention is on point. Kumar helped me work with my insurance plan to minimize my out of pocket coverage. Hygienists are incredibly knowledgeable and helpful. Highly recommend!

Efficient and quick. They’re also so friendly. I’ve been to a lot of dentists around here, and they’re the ones I’ve stuck with.

I have been going to West Somerville Dental Associates for the past three years for general cleaning and also for a new crown due to an old filling that had degraded over time. I have been very impressed and satisfied with the office’s performance and professionalism: Receptionists - all have been kind, polite and professional. They always call as well as email to remind me of upcoming appointments, and they handle all insurance types (see below) Dental insurance - I used to go to a different office in Cambridge but due to change in my insurance plan, I had to look for a new dentist because my old dentist did not accept the new plans. I switched from Delta Dental to MassHealth and MetLife, and West Somerville Dental Associates would accept and handle all of them. What a relief! Cleaning - I have never had cleaner teeth than I do now after absolutely perfect work by Zuzana. She is incredibly thorough, skillful, and will look through everything including the records to ensure that I have quality dental care. I hope she stays at this office - she is the absolute best hygienist that has ever cleaned my teeth! Dr Alvi - last but certainly not least, Dr Alvi runs a great team. She is kind and reassuring to patients, knowledgeable and highly skilled, and treats all her staff with respect. I’ve even seen her pick up calls at the reception desk as well as set up appointments for me while her staff were on away on a break. It’s great to see this level of dedication to the patients, and Dr Alvi leads by example.

Dr Alvi-Shah is great!

West Somerville Dental offers a very friendly and professional service. The people at the front desk, the dental technicians and the dentists do a great job in making you feel welcome and at ease. They are very patient in explaining any procedures or requirements and do an excellent job when in whatever task they are required to do. From my past 15 years with this clinic I would whole heartedly recommend them.

I used to hate the dentist but this place is always great! Been coming here for years since I got my braces off. Front desk staff are super nice and accommodating and I’ve never had an issue with any hygienists or dentists. The space is always clean and professional. 10/10!

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.

My family and I have been coming here for a while and we love it. The doctor and receptionists are always very kind. I have never had anything but a positive experience here.

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!
