Our Patients Say

Dr Patel and his staff are amazing! The office is high tech and the staff and hygienists are extremely pleasant. Great high tech office and I am very pleased with my new veneers and my new smile.

Tom M

My visit to Boutique for Cosmetic Dentistry left me 100% satisfied. The staff was professional, knowledgeable and kind. I went for a check up, deep cleaning and filling. My treatment was comfortable and painless. Dr. Amara did my filling and Shannon the hygienist performed my cleaning, they both did a great job. The facility was bright, modern and super clean, each examine room had mounted TV’s and you were provided with headphones if you wanted to watch a show or listen to music during your treatment. I paid out of pocket and the prices were extremely affordable.

Latoya D.

So far, the best service i’ve ever had. I was struggling with my confidence before, because of my teeth. My smile isn’t even completely done and i already love it. Dentist Dr. Amara is so amazing and she takes her time and does a fantastic job. And her dental assistant Tateanna is so sweet and does a amazing job too. I highly recommend them, they take great care of you!
