This was my first visit to this dentist and I was very pleased. The staff were very welcoming, courteous and friendly.

She let me know what she was doing step by step, and provided me with feedback on how I was caring for my teeth. Dr. Aqueel was also very gentle. He answered my questions and took the time to ask me if I had any other concerns. There was very little wait time, and the office seemed to run smoothly.

Therapeutic environment, wonderful staff that are kind and friendly. Dr. Aqeel is the very best!

Patricia , North Salem

Dr. Aqeel was a lifesaver in May 2016 when I developed a toothache 2 days before I was to go away on vacation. I was seeing another dentist at the time, but could not connect. A co-worker recommended Dr. Aqeel ...problem solved and was able to go away. Unfortunately the condition led to an implant. The process was long but needed to be so in order to be done correctly. There was an unexpected expense due to my coverage at the time, but Lisa stepped in and was able to connect me with a company that would afford me a time payment plan. I continue to be a patient with Dr. Aqeel and have recommended many of my friends. His staff is topnotch!

Jenn, Danbury

Best dentist around!!! I have had a tooth pulled and root canal! He is so calming and the dental hygienist is the best! The front desk is always helpful and very friendly. I was referred here and am so happy!!

Kathleen M, Brewster

Just wanted to say thank you all for taking the time to fit me in and let the doctor look at my gums that were swollen. I was afraid that I had an infection and being it was Friday I could have been toothless by Monday. Fortunately it turned out to be just a little piece of floss. Thanks again.
