I've been ashamed of my smile, all my adult life. Photographs would always show me with a grin rather than a genuine smile. I finally decide it was time to do something for my self esteem. I feel very fortunate to have chosen Dr. Askari & her team. I became aware of Dr. Askari, thanks to a very knowledgeable friend, and an article in "Hour" magazine (Top Docs 2009). The article in "Hour" magazine highlighted several of the prominent doctors in metro Detroit.
My consultation with Dr. Askari, convinced me I was at the right place at the right time. I never felt rushed or belittled by the condition of my teeth. Her team was very understanding and compassionate. They took the time to explain my options, and fully answered all of my questions, in simple terms with examples. After viewing several of the "Before" and "After" success stories, I realized I was not alone.So far, my major reconstruction has been virtually pain-free. They gave me a supply of pain meds, but I didn't need to take any. The major surgery was also a breeze.
As I approach the finish line, I feel like a new person. The work completed so far looks natural and feels great. Almost as if they were my natural teeth. I can't thank Dr. Askari and her team enough for changing my life. I look forward to smiling uncontrollably, and being asked "What are you smiling about".Sincerely, a very grateful...
I like the colors in your office, it is very comforting when I come in. Dr Askari, you have a very good chairside manner. You are always on time and very effectionate. Angey and Jamie are irreplaceable. I love the rest of your team as well. Thank you for everything!
I would like to say that the atmosphere and the attitudes of the people here are both above par. Your team thinks of the patients feelings, comfort, and well being above all else. I use to hate the dentist until I came to your office and found out that caring for my teeth and myself make me a better person.
You have a very friendly staff! I always feel they will take care of me and my family. They will make everything possible to accomodate you if there is ever an emergancy.
Going to a new dentist for the first time is not easy. Trust me initially i was also very apprehensive when i was referred to Dr. Askari. But i must give her TEAM all the credit, they made me comfortable, now i go there for regular appointments and i strongly recommend Dr. Askari to my family and friends. A pleasant surprise in terms of overall experience awaits you. As soon as i entered Dr. Askari's office i had a very good first impression. I am now motivated to go to a dentist in town more then i ever thought of. I am very impressed with the SPA like environment, friendly & enthusiastic staff, great chair side manners, latest technology & techniques, and the best treatment & financial options offered.
Above all they really do give me a reason to smile!
The informative article on Dr. Askari in Lifestyle magazine caught my attention. I immediately contacted Grand Ledge Smiles to make an appointment for myself, concierge answered the phone and was so upbeat and kind . Before my scheduled appointment i received the New Patient Package which contained a wealth of information about the practice along with a Medical History chart for me to complete. I dropped the completed form with Brenda a day before my appointment. I felt very welcome as the staff greeted me with a warm smile and my first visit to the Grand Ledge Smiles Office was very pleasant as well as relaxing. The initial apprehension of changing my dentist of 20+ years was quickly forgoten and now my entire family consults Dr. Askari for our Dental needs. Our previous dentist was male, my daughters are very happy with Dr. Askari a female dentist who is very gentle and our kids love it! We are all extremely impressed with the beauty of the office, knowledge and kindness of the entire staff!! The snacks, refreshments and massage chair enticed my kids.
