Dr. Saffarpour is, by far, the best dentist I've ever had. This actually saying quite a lot given my age and history of moving frequently(often twice within one year). Anyway, I got her name off an internet list of Mercury Free Dentist, as my main ambition was to have my mercury amalgam fillings removed safely and placed by the safest filling alternative. She was the only dentist I called in the area offered me a free consultation and her front staffer was really, genuinely nice. ( to read more please visit Yelp Reviews)
I really want to give her 5 stars but do not want this review filtered out.
Thank you Dr Saffarpour! We do not have insurance and where searching high and low for an affordable AND excellent dentist. We are grateful to have found you through a dental discount plan.
She does excellent work, has a clean office and they do not keep you waiting. My husband is very pleased with this dentist and we are saving a bundle that we do not have!
***update: I just got some of my silver fillings removed! Dr Saffarpour and her assistant both came in with their smocks, a gas mask, plastic glasses, with a plastic facial mask on top of that. I had oxygen tubes in my nose and there was another machine off to the side of me to suction the invisible vapors of the mercury as my fillings were being removed. They also opened the window to provide more air circulation in the room. It was very different. But if you think about it, if it takes all that to get your silver fillings removed, makes you think about how all the other dentists out there DON'T do any of that stuff at all! Makes you re-think just how safe things are being done. I can tell that Dr Saffarpour also takes her time to do honest work. She doesn't just look over my teeth quickly and tells me I have cavities just to get paid by the insurance company. She genuinely cares about her patients and the type of service she provides.
I found Dr Saffarpour because my holistic Dr recommended I go on a website to find a dentist that removes silver fillings properly and safely. She is located in a tall brown buiding that can easily be mistaken for an apartment complex. She is on the second floor and has a small, quaint office. The receptionist is very friendly and helpful. After meeting Dr. Saffarpour she explained to me the dangers of mercury and amalgam fillings and how important it is that they be removed properly and the affects it has on our body. It's scary to know that there are only 2 dentists in San Jose that practice this. So all the other dentists still continue to expose themselves, their employees and their patients to this dangerous material. Dr Saffarpour will be replacing all of my silver fillings soon. She is very informative, patient, a great listener and is educated in what she does.
Dr. Saffarpour and her staff are wonderful! They are all very friendly and inviting. Dr. Saffarpour has a calm and gentle personality and this transfers into how she works on your teeth and gums as well. She is knowledgeable, but more importantly knows how to communicate what she knows in a way that I can understand. She is also very attentive to me and straightforward in her answers. She asks questions on my eating and cleaning habits and will make suggestions based on my lifestyle and tools that I already use, not give some generic dental recommendations.
The office is very clean. She has toys and a tv for movies in her waiting room, which is great for when I have to take my kids with me. She also has TVs in the procedure rooms so if you need to be distracted during a procedure they have a selection of shows and movies you can watch. But the most calming thing for me is the light covers that she has. So simple, but the sky blue and clouds on her light covers are very relaxing to me when I'm laying down and looking up at this for the time that I'm in the chair.
Dr. Saffarpour has been my dentist for many years now and will continue to be for a long time!
Jack of all trades...Master of none!
Dr. Saffarpour's office is great. They have reasonable pricing for people who have to pay out of pocket. They are very accomodating and they listen to your needs. I wish they were a provider my HMO.

I have been a patient of Dr. Saffarpour's for over five years now and I have consistently been very happy with my dental experiences. Dr. Saffarpour's does very high quality work and is extremely knowledgeable of her field. Her staff is always friendly and helpful and makes going to the dentist almost a pleasurable experience! I highly recommend her practice!

I would highly recommend Dr. Saffarpour and her staff. Everyone is nice and sincere. Unlike another dentist which I had a bad experience before, Dr. Saffarpour treat patient with respect and no distance. I had a feeling that she is treating me like her families. She explain things in detail, even played a video to me in order to better understand the situation. What's more amazing, the price here is very reasonable. I told her staff that I do not have dental insurance, and she recommended me a dental discount plan. As a result, it saved me about 50% on tooth extraction. There is no any hidden fee that they will charge you after the treatment (unlike the clinic I had bad experience before). I am really amazed at their work and attitude. This is why I would highly recommend everyone in the neighborhood to go to this place.

I have been going to Dr Saffarpour since she took over this practice from the previous dentist Dr Winthrop. Dr Saffarpour and her dental assistant Karla have always been very accommodating, kind, friendly and professional. I enjoy going to their office as much as anyone can enjoy going the the dentist. They have worked with me through very extensive cosmetic procedures to fix the 20+ years I had gone without much dental care and have always worked with me on any dental procedure phobias I have so well that I can't say anything about the dentist scares me anymore. She is a wonderful dentist and I highly recommend her to all my friends looking for a new provider.

Dr Saffarpour is a super nice, trustworthy, and all around fantastic dentist. I've had all of my dental work done here since 2000 and have referred family and friends to her office. The staff is nice and professional.
There is definitely a family atmosphere and warmth at the office. I love this dentist and you will too!!!
San Jose, Ca
The absolute best dentist I've ever dealt with. Had invisalign done with her as well as all of my routine dental work.
I've recommended my entire family and good friends to her. Dependable, honest, and thorough. Also, the dental assistant is very helpful and cheery!
Dr. Saffarpour is one of the best dentists I have ever have! She is courteous, caring and has a great bedside manner. She remembers everything you talked about 6 months later when you are at your appointment . Also, when working on you, she constantly asks if you are alright and if you need a break. She helps you with a deep discount when you don't have insurance and only wants the best for you. Do go to her if you need a dentist because you won't be sorry!
San Jose, Ca
Dr. Saffarpour is the consummate professional, always willing to take the additional time to explain things, always concerned when you are under going a procedure constantly checking to ensure that you are comfortable. I actually had an emergency where I swallowed one of my crowns, I was hysterical, I immediately contacted Dr. Saffarpour seeking her assistance to avoid having to go around looking as though I was from the cast of Deliverance. She took me in immediately and gave me a temporary crown, she eventually replaced my preexisting crown with an impeccable match. She is truly a great dentist that I highly recommend!

"Dr. Saffarpour is the best dentist I have ever been too! She takes the time to listen to you and spend time with you. She is extremely thorough and very gentle. Karla is also a great dental hygienist and Suzette is the friendliest and most helpful Administrative staff. Everyone is so friendly it feels like I'm visiting family. Never had to wait long even when they were busy. They were great with both of my young children and me. I highly recommend Dr. Saffarpour!"

Dr. Saffarpour is the very best. We are lucky in this area to have a dedicated professional such as her with a staff to match. Nowhere else have I seen such a professional team at every level working in such harmony to give patients the best advice that can be completely trusted. The work I have had done has been flawless. The highly competent staff will bend over backwards to help you in everything you need and make you comfortable. Dr. Saffarpour is very knowledgeable about the effect oral health has on the whole body. This is something I have just recently become aware of and found out the hard way. Her dentistry work reflects this in the care she takes to insure your complete health. Can't thank you enough for that!! I have had my share of bad experiences these last couple of years with dentists who acted more like businessmen than professionals and who, like me, seemed not to know how what they do affects people's overall health. Something didn't feel right, so I kept on searching. In my search, I found Dr. Saffarpour and my dental problems are finally over. I just wish I would have come to her first. It would have saved me a lot of health problems, a lot of pain, a lot of money and a couple of my teeth. My whole family is now seeing her and are thrilled with the results.

~~Great as usual! A big thank to the whole team :)

My experience under Dr. Saffarpour's care has been simply put, incredible. I have PSTD from a past dental experience that's only triggered when I undergo dental work! Dr. Saffarpour makes one feel at ease, so kind, caring, and at the same time professional. Practicing both (caring along with professionalism) is not easy to find and I've found my lifelong dentist as long as I'm in the bay area. I trust her expertise and she only does the work necessary to preserve your dental health. And the materials she uses are all mercury-free AND BPA-free. Her staff are exceptional as well and they and Dr. Saffarpour are so sensitive to answer any questions, even in the middle of dental work when necessary and when safe of course. Thank you Dr. Saffarpour!

Dr. Saffarpour has been my dentist for about 4 years now and wouldn't think of going to another dentist. The entire staff is professional and will not forget to notify you of an appointment. You will get a call, email, and text message confirming the date.
My smile is almost restored. Can not wait for next appointment to finish the work. I should have done that much earlier :)
Meganh , San Jose, CA
Dr. Saffarpour is amazing! In the past, like so many others, I had never experienced a positive dental visit. Until now! She listens, and really considers your entire being. The staff is always helpful and friendly, and the office has a very calming and relaxing feel to it. I could go on all day about the positive points, but let's just say I tell everybody how wonderful it is!

Karenc , San Jose, CA
The kindest, most gentle, knowledgeable dentist I have ever had and would recommend her 100% to any one needing a dental work
Dr. Saffapour is incredibly kind & gentle. I have a lot of trauma/anxiety & scarring from previous doctors. She & her staff are compassionate & considerate. Her front desk staff is also super helpful with navigating the maze of insurance madness.
