Our patients say.
"I am VERY pleased by the professional and kind care I received from Dr. Chawla and everyone at SRI Dental. This is especially important to me because I recently learned that I need to have major work done on my teeth. I have had serious anxiety about dentists all my life. Everyone in the office immediately put me at ease. They have given me confidence that all will turn out alright."
"Great first experience! Nice group of people who care about their patients. Office is clean and organized. Well run practice. We really liked the doctor. You will, too."
"Our family receives outstanding care at SRI Dental. At all stages of any appointment — whether calling to schedule, being welcomed, receiving treatment, or checking out— Dr. Chawla, Pat, Donna and the members of SRI Dental’s team have consistently been kind, courteous, and thorough. As a parent to three kids (teens+), I appreciate the time taken by all members to explain the care and treatment plan being executed. SRI Dental is aptly named!"
"SRI Dental continues the legacy Dr. DeCicco started. Honest, top notch, affordable dental work and THE BEST teeth cleaning. Still the most comfortable dental experience I’ve ever had regardless of the procedure. I’ve been going here since around 1998 and have no plans of going anywhere else! I recommend them whole heartedly."
