Would you get on an airplane and fly some 1,000 miles just to be seen by a dentist? I DO! After being a patient of Dr. Fariba Farrokhi, DMD, of South Orange Family Dentistry, and getting the quality and reassuring care provided by her and her staff, I gladly fly from Florida, where I currently live, to South Orange, NJ, for all my significant dental work. Just did on 8/24/17. Admittedly, I’m a total wimp when it comes to sitting in a dentist chair. However, the pleasant and relaxed manner with which Dr. Farrokhi treats her patients, using the latest dental technologies, works for my family and me. My wife, son and daughter became patients when my son was in middle school; he is now 30. At the time, I was content with the dentist I had and, because of my fear of dentists, resisted my wife’s frequent recommendations to give Dr. Farrokhi a try. After a dental emergency with my dentist unavailable, I relented and went to see her. I immediately saw what my family had been telling me for about five years. Dr. Farrokhi calmly and caringly explained my dental issues and treatment options and completed the procedures with the utmost professionalism. I was especially impressed with the tapping on my forehead by her staff to distract me from pain and anxiety, as she administered the anesthesia. I have never looked back. I should have gone to Dr. Farrokhi years earlier.
