Insurance Companies Request an Appointment Membership Plan


I moved away from the neighborhood where my original dentist was located and it was too far to drive to. So I chose a dentist that was close to me, which was Dr. Saghatchi. I'm very pleased with my choice!

The entire staff was welcoming, professional, and put me at ease each time I walked through the door. I needed a bit of work done on my teeth after not going to the dentist for over 6 years (several fillings, a crown, possibly a root canal, etc). Dr. Saghatchi explained everything he was doing, and went over all the possible options for me to get my mouth the way I want it. I'm so happy with my teeth and with the care I received at Newport Dental Group.

From the first time I contacted them for a broken tooth they have gone out of their way to make sure I was comfortable. I am extremely scared of dentists in general due to some horrific experiences in my past. Josie, Rose, Hamid and Dr. Saghatchi were especially attentive to my fear and now I can go there and be relaxed and confident there won't be any more bad experiences. I am halfway through an implant, and have referred them to a few people and will continue to do so - thanks Newport Dental Group - you are the bomb!

I am a long time patient of Dr. Saghatchi and have always received excellent care. When I was a new patient Dr. Saghatchi worked with me to develop a treatment plan and when faced with making a decision about dental work needing to be done he takes the time to explain all of my treatment options. The staff at Newport Dental Group is friendly, courteous and professional and have worked with me in submitting my FSA claims. Newport Dental Group also gives back to their local community by supporting charitable organizations. I would recommend Newport Dental Group to anyone needing a good dentist.

As I grew older and lost contact with my old dental group I found a new one of high interest. Newport Dental Group has taken care of me and my brother in much respect and kindness. They are gentle with your teeth and are very good with business. I was introduced to Dr. Saghatchi and ever since, I've been comfortable with my choice. He is a very nice doctor and knows exactly what he's doing. I never regret a visit to the dentist and look forward to the next appointment. The staff at Newport Dental Group is super friendly and easy to understand and make business with. Thank you everyone at Newport Dental group! I appreciate all that you've done.

Amazing! From the first impression I received when I called them to get information about their practice, to the several times I've been in to see them, I really am pleased with the service! Not only is the entire staff very friendly, but they go the extra mile to ensure you have a pleasant visit, everything from comfort to making certain your dental insurance covers your procedures to the max! I actually enjoy going to the dentist, and it's a bonus that I live in the area! I am very happy to have found them, and recommend their group highly.

On my first visit Dr. Saghatchi had to perform a root canal on my aching tooth. I had never had a root canal and was a little worried but Dr. Saghatchi was very good at checking in with me frequently during the procedure and made me feel comfortable by administering additional Novocain if I was feeling any sensitivity. Overall it was a good experience. It should be noted that Dr. Saghatchi is very versatile and can perform many different types of treatments. A typical dentist may send you to another specialist to get a root canal, which can be a hassle because that requires a separate appointment at a difference location. Dr. Saghatchi was able to perform all the treatments I required at that location.
