Dr. Harsini and I had been friends for a few years when we started dating and eventually I came to work at the practice. We got married in 2018 and in 2020 welcomed our beautiful little girl to the Smile Dental Family. Our experience has allowed us to grow so much both personally and professionally by living and working together. We are grateful every day for the family we have together AND our awesome work family too.

Dr. Harsini and his staff are caring and very professional. To be honest I don’t like going to the dentist and Dr Harsini and his staff made my visit very pleasant . They made sure I was comfortable and kept checking in to make sure I was doing ok. Dr Harsini was honest on what I needed and provided me with options. I would recommend Dr Harsini to all my family and friends. If you are looking for a dentist who keeps it real and gives you options then give Smile Dental Clinic a call.
