Torrie WilliamsTorrie Williams ★★★★★ My experience at Smile Vegas Dental have always been a great one. The people are nice and always have positive energy. My kids love it there also and Dr. Naweed is the best!Yaya S.Yaya S. ★★★★★ maryam headmaryam head ★★★★★ Manuel ValentonManuel Valenton ★★★★★ To start with I was looking for a dentist to fix my bridge within two days and I asked my husband to fine the closes dental office in our area. He started calling dental offices around our neighborhood, but most of the dental offices did not have appointment available except for Smile Vegas Dental. The office was only ten minutes away . Smile Vegas Dental was able to see me. I told the staff that I need to have my bridge fixed within two days because I was flying out of town to attend my grandson's wedding. Dr. Dela Cruz was very kind and promptly attend to my needs and situation. Since then, my over all experience with the staff and your office has been quite remarkable and can honestly say that Dr. Dela Cruz and her team are highly commendable. In closing they poses good human relation and they are very professional and provided excellent service.Kris CKris C ★★★★★ Jennifer OnJennifer On ★★★★★ Response from the ownerThank you for the 5 star review! Leah & Stephen LusterLeah & Stephen Luster ★★★★★ The people were so friendly and took great care of my grandma.Yaro VYaro V ★★★★★ All staff was great, enjoy coming here and have great interaction. Always accommodating and appreciate everyone’s effort to resolve any issues I have 💛Brenda SharleinBrenda Sharlein ★★★★★ I am new to Vegas and found "Smile Vegas Dental " through my insurance. I was very impressed. Top of the line equipment, clean, new, and all of the staff were exceptionally nice. The TV's (Netflix) on the ceiling made my deep cleaning so much more bearable than the past, at other dentist offices. I didn't have to wait long for an appointment, in the lobby or waiting room. A huge plus. The only thing I don't like, and maybe it's a Vegas thing, is having a 3rd party answering service. They were also very professional and kind. I just hate answering services (especially during business hours) that seems to be the new norm today. I'm just going to have to adapt to this new change in the medical industry. It's not just them but everywhere. I highly recommend this dentist office. I usually dread the dentist, but today, I walked out feeling happy and satisfied. Thank you!Arielle QuiamzonArielle Quiamzon ★★★★★ Samantha S.Samantha S. ★★★★★ Love this dentist and their team.Pixel StudioPixel Studio ★★★★★ Highly recommend! I have a whole lotof anxiety about going to the dentist. Since they have opened up, I have become an advocate. Dr. Najand and his new (hygienist)/whole team were amazing. They made me feel comfortable and I believe the treatment plan he has recommended is for my best!They have multiple services they take care in office such as; teeth whitening, 3D scans for Invisalign and more.Thank you for everything you do for my family and I!Eiman PopalResponse from the ownerThank you for your feedback!

A big bonus for me is they are always Accommodating and patient when I have my children with me.Narek PetrosyanNarek Petrosyan ★★★★★ Joyce AndersonJoyce Anderson ★★☆☆☆ Update, I must revise this review as I had an emergency situation and called them THREE TIMES as an established patient but they never bothered to call me back!! I went elsewhere and will now go to our new Dentist for all of our dental needs. I actually think the Invisalign this dentist did caused my new situation. As much money and time as we spent, I least deserved a call back. Can no longer recommend them.Response from the ownerI genuinely regret any inconvenience caused by our inability to accommodate your visit. We did make an attempt to reach out by phone and left a voicemail on the same day, although I understand you may not have had the chance to listen to it. Unfortunately, our follow-up was hindered by several team members being out sick.Please accept my sincere apologies for any frustration this may have caused. If the matter persists with the other office, we would be more than willing to find a suitable solution and schedule your visit accordingly. Your understanding is greatly appreciated, and we look forward to the opportunity to serve you better in the future. - Dr. Naweed Najand Richard SRichard S ★★★★★ Eric NguyenEric Nguyen ★★★★★ Great staff.

I woke up with severe pains and since we just moved to Las Vegas and I desperately needed to be seen but was hesitant because for one, I’m deathly afraid of the dentist (although I don’t miss my appointments) and two, I wanted to make sure I was going to someone or a place that was reputable. I chose Smile Vegas Dental off of Blue Diamond because of prior reviews I read and they were spot on! They took me in last minute (thanks Izzy!!!) for severe pain and I AM SOOO THANKFUL that they did. They didn’t have to but they did and for that, I am beyond appreciative 🙏🏽♥️ Everybody is so friendly and patient AND most of all, the place is very clean; a great atmosphere!!!Response from the ownerHello Patrice,Thank you so much for sharing your experience with us!
