Always a high quality experience, on time!
I've been a client of Rafia Dental since they opened and always have an excellent experience. I can rely on them to keep my appointment time, provide efficient cleanings, and get honest and helpful feedback about my teeth. I would highly recommend (and have recommended to my family and friends) Rafia Dental.

Great staff, clean and professional environment.
I’ve gone to the safe dentist for 28 years so I was a bit scared to go somewhere new. The staff was super friendly and helpful. The hygienist was super peppy and fun! She also explained everything out for me as to what she was doing and about the office. It was great. 10/10 would recommend this dental office to everyone.

E P.

The Best.
I can't say that going to the dentist is ever the most fun thing I'll ever do - but going to Rafia makes it so much more enjoyable. Every employee I've come across is so polite, knowledgable, and most of all personable. Dr. Young and Dr. Rafia are the best team for care and their support staff shows it! I appreciate them and the quality service they provide!

Diana Z.

Professional and preventative.
I actually enjoy my visits to Rafia dental when it comes to having my teeth cleaned. The hygienist is usually positive and up beat, and very gentle with the client. Dr. Young is attentive and listens to your concerns. The location is great, and I’m glad that I changed to Rafia Dental.
