Our Story

Dr. Karapetian successfully restored a missing tooth by placing a dental implant. The implant surgery itself was trouble-free, quick and painless. The implant looks and feels like my natural tooth! I am extremely happy with the results. My Thanks to Dr. Karapetian for all his help!

I’ve been going to Friendly Smiles Dental for the last four years, the Doctors & staff are all friendly and informative. I no longer dread my dental appointment but now actually enjoy going. All my family from my 9 year old daughter to my 70 year old grandmother are all patients here!

Thank You Friendly Smiles for getting me in so quickly for my wisdom teeth, the pain was like nothing I had ever experienced in my life. The staff took my X-rays and Dr. Karapetian took all 4 of my wisdom teeth out and gave me pain medication and by the next day I felt so much better. Thank you again Dr. Karapetian.

I am very pleased with my new appearance and I seem to be smiling a lot more. The whole experience from start to finish was very pleasant; may I say I have never in my life enjoyed going to the dentist so much. You and your staff went out of your way to be gentle kind and positive. I have had many comments from friends, family and total strangers and all have been positive and complimentary. I would recommend your services without hesitation.
