I have been using Summit Smiles for the past 2 years and it is superb. The quality of service is first class and Dr. Mariam Vaziri is fantastic and very professional....she's also great with kids! These other reviews on YP are old and before Dr. Mariam Vaziri took over Summit

Worst experience ever, the receptionist lies about appointments if you purchase a groupon so the groupon expires and they take your money. I would advise not to buy a groupon from them and if so, get a refund.

I write opposing all negative reviews below. I have been a Patient First patient for nearly 12 years. In that time, not once have I experienced pain, not once have I experienced anything but pleasantness and professionalism from the staff and Dr. Reilly himself. And in that time, I have come to think of Dr. Reilly as not simply my dentist but a top professional whose consideration for my financial limitations and personal well-being have been nothing short of startling. Contrary to the other posts, in over 10 years, I have never seen or heard any patient complain or express any unhappiness about care or billing. I continue referring patients, none of whom have ever complained to me about that referral. Dr. Reilly is an exceptionally skilled, dexterous and intelligent dentist akin to a surgeon. His staff have treated me with pleasantness and respect for well over a decade. For anyone that has the slightest hesitation about this practice, contact me at csavoth@live.com. I will entertain legitimate, honest questions and concerns. For those, I am convinced miscommunication is likely the issue. I am appalled at the anonymous attacks on this good man’s practice, reputation and good will in the community. It takes a lifetime to build a practice and that ought not be undermined by disgruntled anonymous attacks such as some of these posts. I urge you to do one thing: schedule a visit. Don’t believe me – believe the experience. A bad dentist is like having twice the pain with a dental problem. A great dentist is like having a shield for you against years of dental pain and expense. This is a great dentist indeed.

Agree with all the reviews. The practice is terrible and treats patients like sources of money instead of people. They are opaque with insurance coverage and costs explanations and generally have a cold/arrogant demeanor. I agree the hygenist is good and a bright spot in the practice. I moved recently but will continue to go to my old dental practice in the city from here on out.

Cleaning is good, treatment (e.g. fillings or god forbid root canal) – no way – avoid!My dentist moved practice and instead of driving 2h to new location I decided to try new dentistry. Cleaning was actually very good, girl who done it was very careful and professional… but once they attempted to treat cavity (actually he - black man).. I wish I drove 2h instead (had to do it anyway to fix).

I moved to Summit a couple of years ago and needed to find a dentist quickly and found this office due to its convenient location. I do not have experience with Dr. Sandoval so cannot comment on her but Dr. Riley is terrible. His staff made a mistake on the timeing of my insurance and I have never been treated so badly by a "professional" in my life. He basically accused me of lying or not knowing how insurance works and tried to charge me without insurance coverage because his office staff was misinformed. I have since found a new dentist who is great and hope to save others from going through what I had to.
Tips & Advices
Dental hygienists are required to attend continuing education classes, and the amount of continuing education that is needed varies from state to state. Depending on the state, dental hygienists must renew their licenses every one, two, or three years. A certain amount of continuing education is necessary to successfully have this license renewed.
Dental hygienists can perform teeth whitening. This procedure is used to brighten a discolored smile. It's possible to whiten teeth at home, but you'll often get faster results if you turn the process over to a trained and skilled professional. Dentists and dental hygienists often use stronger bleaches to whiten teeth than those that are available to consumers over the counter.
The costs associated with getting the education required to become a dental hygienist depends on the type of degree chosen. For an associate's degree, expect to spend an average of $22,000. For a bachelor's degree, the average cost rises to $36,000. For a master's degree, it would take an additional $30,000 on top of the costs associated with getting a bachelor's degree.
It takes a minimum of two years to become a dental hygienist. This is the time required to obtain the associate's degree that qualifies them for licensing in a particular state. After obtaining a degree, they'll need to pass national, state, and regional exams to begin working as a dental hygienist.
The are certain key differences between a dental hygienist and a dental assistant. A dental assistant performs tasks such as disinfecting instruments, managing patients' dental records, and assisting dentists during procedures. Dental hygienists perform a more advanced set of tasks, such as polishing teeth and removing tartar, plaque, and stains.
