Some of our happy patients:

I first went to Dr. Rastakhiz around Sep'22 after confirming that they take Delta Dental insurance. I subsequently went there for deep cleaning in... November when they charged me $304 for 2 quadrants. I continued to visit him for other treatments and was very confused about why I'm paying so much co-pay. I asked them repeatedly if they are in network for Delta and the lady at the front always said yes.Then my wife went there in Jan'23 and the same exact treatment for the 2 quadrants cost her $786. See the attached image!! It's unbelievable! She called them a couple of times and every time they promised to call her back but they never did. Finally, my wife was able to get a hold of them today when they finally told her they are not part of Delta Dental.I called Delta and they confirmed that Dr. Rastakhiz left the network in Oct'22. But they never told us and we've ended up paying *thousands* of dollars out of pocket!! I have lodged a grievance with Delta Dental. They told me that out-of-network dentists can charge whatever they like that's why it's important to always go to Delta website to confirm if the dentist is participating or not.---Update on 3/17/23: Dr. Rastakhiz told me this was a billing mistake on their part and he'll reimburse any extra money they have charged beyond what Delta would have covered. I have since received a check from his office. I appreciate the swift resolution.read more

Very excited I found this dental office! Everyone is super friendly, made me feel very welcome and were able to fit me in quickly to help me repair a... chipped tooth.Being kind is one thing, but on top of that they broke down home care technique to help me prevent damage, provided product suggestions, & not only suggested ortho but showed me with a 3d render of the difference it could have on my teeth and gave me an estimate for how long it would take.I’ve never left a dentist office feeling excited to come back, but I can honestly say I look forward to my next visit!Thanks guys 😁read more

I finally found my favorite dental group in the Bay area. I recently visited Dr. Rastakhiz's office for a semi-urgent issue with one of my teeth. I... found Dr. Rastakhiz and his team very professional, patient, attentive, and truly kind. Dr. Rastakhiz spent a lot of time with me explaining the complication with my teeth and all the possible treatments that could potentially resolve it, and he made sure to answer all my questions very patiently. I find all the technicians, hygienists, and even the receptionist at Dr. Rastakhiz's office very professional and nice.In the past couple of years, I've been putting off my regular dental check-up because of a negative experience that I had with a different dental group in a different place. But, after visiting Dr. Rastakhiz's office, now I really like to regularly go back and make sure that I take good care of my teeth with the help of Dr. Rastakhiz's group.read more

I appreciate this dental office so much when I come in after working. With a name change and insurance challenges, the staff have been so helpful and... patient. I feel safe and heard when I have come for appointments. The dentist is respectful and gives valuable feedback for me to take better care of my teeth and I don't feel shamed for forgetting to floss! We all have lives and the staff at this office are kind and welcoming. The music is calm and relaxing. I always feel like I can share as well as ask questions. Highly recommend!read more

An excellent service. Dr Rastakhiz explains everything he does really nicely, is respectful, and keeps things interesting with a pleasant... personality. In this covid world he and his assistants take extra precautions by wearing a face mask under a face shield along with protective clothing. Very impressed with what seems like the latest technology in dentistry, like the panorama teeth xrays. Most importantly, I feel very confident with his expertise -- pointing out issues (if there are any) and whether or not something needs to be done about it right away or can it wait.read more
