I am not the best of patients, mainly due to fear of the dentist. When I moved my family up here 7 years ago I spent the first two years trying different dentists (while unfortunately really needing a lot of work done). I really cringed at

.

The staff was friendly, but I was disappointed in the overall experience. First, finances - I felt they were trying to sell me procedures I would have to pay for out of pocket (not covered by my insurance) throughout my entire appointment. Also, it turned out my insurance had changed, and they weren't on the preferred provider list, therefore I had to pay increased "out of network" fees. My own fault for not checking if they were in network, however, when I received the bill, they wrote a note explaining this as my insurance company having uncommon payment standards, implying it would be the same wherever I went instead of explaining it was because they were out of network.
As for the quality of dental care, it was mediocre. I went to a different dentist a few months later, & he found 2 cavities on the x-rays he had been sent from this clinic - neither of which had been mentioned by Dr. Goharkay. She had filled 1 cavity, which took her the same amount of time it took my current dentist to fill 3 cavities. Also, Dr Goharkay wanted to remove old sealant from one of my molars - fortunately, she didn't do it in my initial appointment, and since I had no recollection of ever having sealant put on my teeth, I called my childhood dentist who confirmed sealant had never been put on my teeth. If I hadn't checked on that, she would have tried to remove what she though was sealant, but was actually part of my tooth.
Overall, I felt I was offered below average dental care, while the entire time being pressured to do things that would cost me a significant amount of money. I would no recommend this clinic.

Pros: Friendly Staff

Cons: Pressure to do expensive procedures, missed cavities

.

She has been the worst dentist that I have ever seen. I found her through my MIL and have been very disappointed. She is extremely expensive, her front staff lack the professionalism that I expect from a doctor's office, she is unwilling to make payment plans for when people get in a bind, her cleanings are average at best, and she missed two cavities that I had. I will never go back to her office again and have moved my entire family's accounts to another great dentist in Bellevue.

Buyer Beware!!!
