Patient Reviews of Coastal Smile Design
Dr. Karen Parvin, your family dentist in Chesapeake, VA
"When my dentist of 15 years retired, I was forced to find a new practice. I was happy to find Dr. Karen Parvin's practice close to my home. I was even more excited that this new, state-of-the art dental practice accepted my insurance. The most pleasant surprise of all happens every time I walk into this practice. Dr. Parvin and her staff are friendly and professional. They really listen to you and make sure you understand your options. They truly care about you and your dental health. I have always been pleased with Dr. Parvin's work. I can't imagine going anywhere else!"

"Undoubtedly the VERY BEST you can get, hands down. Have been with their team for three years and my family and I couldnt be happier. Karen and her staff really care, its obvious with every communication, every visit."

"I have had EXTENSIVE dental work done in the last seven years. While not all of my experiences were bad, the most recent was awful. My father called up Dr. Parvin right after my experience was finished with the other dentist. Dr. Parvin set me up to come in the very next day to have a consultation. I am not exaggerating when I say this was the absolute best experience with any doctor I have ever had. She took the time to explain and inform me of things I never knew. Her, nor her staff ever made me feel pressured or ashamed of my dental phobia. I do not need a second visit to know Dr. Parvin will be me and my families new dentist. The whole team, atmosphere and process was positive from the very first moment. Thank you!!!!"

"Renee performed my first cleaning in 10 years and over two separate appoints my teeth look like they have not been neglected for so long it was great! DMD Karen Parvin did an exam and we discuss the next stage in my care for restoration and the level of comfort and understanding by the entire staff makes Coastal Smiles the best dental practice my wife and have used. Happy Holidays!"

"As a patient, about 1.5 yrs now, it's by my private observation and consistent experience at Costal Smile Design, Dr. Parvin and her team are a group of wonderful and most caring professionals who really "get it!"
My experience, beginning with scheduling of appointment to arriving for treatment, onto patient handling, and finally, leaving with the proverbial lollipop has never been anything short of great and enjoyable!
They get it because it seems they've spared no expense in the area of ensuring their customer's comfort level is reached! And I do mean that sincerely. They use state of the art advances to communicate, avail amenities of quality like java and bottled water. Everyone is always smiling, friendly, attentive, and ab..."

"My dental visit was outstanding from start to finish. The receptionist greeted me by name, and checked me in quickly. I was escorted back to the operatory on time and greeted by Dr. Parvin who completed a very comprehensive exam and then left me in the capable hands of one of her hygienists. The hygienist was gentle but thorough. In fact, she was so gentle, that I nodded off a time or two. After, my cleaning was complete, the receptionist scheduled a follow-up appointment and I was on my way home in one hour. Dr. Parvin and her team provide a comfortable, modern, and friendly atmosphere in which they deliver world class dentistry. Dr. Michael Lewis"

"If you want a dental staff that treats you like family and cares about you... this is the place to be!

I recommend them to friends every chance I get!!!"

"Dr Parvin and her Staff are very professional. My exam/cleaning took about an hour and a half, which was longer than anticipated, but for very good reason. This was my first visit to Coastal Smile Design, so there was the paperwork. Also, the exam included a cancer screening of the neck/throat/jaw area, and photographs of certain teeth were taken for comparison to future exams (wear patterns). Then the "normal" exam/cleaning happened. (Why are other dentist's satisfied with just "normal"?)
Dr Parvin and the dental hygienist took the time to explain and discuss along the way. I felt that my dental health was the important issue the entire time, and that's important to me. Robert"

"As a new and somewhat nervous patient, I was pleasantly surprised at how kind and welcoming everyone is at Dr. Parvin's office. They put me at ease and made me feel very comfortable from the moment I walked in the door. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable and Dr. Parvin was easy to talk to."

"This was my first visit to a dentist in several years, so I was nervous to say the least. Dr. Parvin and her staff were great. Everyone that I encountered was very friendly, accomodating, and easy to talk to. My "new patient" appointment was very thorough and everything was explained to me in detail. I honestly didn't have any questions or concerns upon leaving. The office is very modern and comfortable. The front office assistant, Beth, was extremely helpful with understanding my insurance benefits and estimated expenses for this visit as well as near future visits. Overall, my visit to Coastal Smile Design exceeded my expectations and I will be referring my husband and other family members to them as well."

"I have had numerous bad experiences in the past with dental visits which left me terrified to go to the dentist. Even working up the nerve to call for an appointment was scary. However; I knew that if I did not start receiving regular dental treatment, I may lose my teeth eventually and became tired of being in constant pain. When I found Dr. Parvin's website I felt immediately relieved and knew that this would be a good visit. I was right!!! The minute I walked in the door and was greeted as if the staff had known me for years instantly calmed me. The atmosphere was so relaxing and the office beautifully decorated. Dr. Parvin introduced herself and when she sat down with me to examine my teeth she took her time and was so genuin..."

"The service I experience today was excellent. The atmosphere was excellent. The staff was friendly. I had my teeth and gums examined from x-rays, pictures, etc. They explained everything to me from today's visit. Afterwards, they cleaned my teeth and explained different things about flossing and brushing."

"Great Dentist! My kids get excited when it's time for a dental check up and cleaning...that about sums everything up! :) Being one that panics about going to the dentist, I didn't want my kids to feel the same way. Great dentist for when the are just a little too old for the Pediatric dentist anymore. An easy transition and great to get the whole family done at once."

"My husband had been told by our previous dentist that he needed three cavities filled. We decided to get a second opinion with Dr. Parvin and we are so glad that we did. She was very thorough in her examination & recommended filling just one of them. We really appreciate going to a conservative dentist & trust that the best decisions are being made on our behalf. Everyone in the office is wonderful. Thank you!"
by Amy B (January 18, 2013)
"My dental visit was even more than I had hoped for. My husband had gone for his visit before me and told me how beautiful and updated this office was...... and he was right! Dr. Parvin has an "office" for patients to fill out and electronically sign documents (no more clipboard and pen), digital x-rays, massage chair, t.v., coffee bar, and the best........ an awesome staff! If you want the best dental care you need to make an appointment with Dr. Parvin now!"

"It was a great informative first visit. The office is very modern and high tech. I do not think they missed any details. The staff was very knowledgeable, personal and sensitive to my family needs since we have a son with Down Syndrome. What a great way to start the new year!!! Looking forward to being a long time patient."

"Overall, an excellent experience. Professional throughout the entire appointment. Some dentists are a little rough when cleaning plaque, but Dr. Parvin did a superior and gentle job. Plus their office is very modern and up-to-date. Care is very personal, and I would strongly recommend them to anyone seeking a superior dentist in the Hampton Roads area."

"MY VISIT TO COASTAL SMILE DESIGN WAS A VERY PLEASANT ONE. THE STAFF WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL. DR. PARVIN DID A THOROUGH EXAM, X-RAYS WERE TAKEN AND MY TEETH WERE CLEANED BY THE DENTAL HYGIENIST DURING THE INITIAL VISIT. THE OFFICE IS HI-TECH, EQUIPT WITH DIGITAL X-RAYS AND AN INTRA-ORAL CAMERA WHICH WAS USED TO TAKE PICTURES OF MY TEETH. I WAS ABLE TO VIEW THESE PICTURES ON A TV SCREEN MOUNTED OVER THE DENTAL CHAIR I WAS SEATED IN. I WILL DEFINITELY RETURN TO THIS DENTAL PRACTICE FOR ROUTINE EXAMS AND CLEANINGS, AS WELL AS RESTORATIVE TREATMENT."

"I was extremely happy with my visit to Coastal Smile Design. Beth, at the front desk, was very welcoming and helpful. Tracy, the hygenist, was very personable and explained what would happen during my visit from start to finish. She was also great at polishing my teeth and made the experience very comfortable. I was very impressed with Dr. Parvin's knowledge and "bed side manner." She took plenty of time with me explaining procedures and answering my questions in great detail. My overall experience with Coastal Smile Design was very positive and I will return for my 6th month checkup without a doubt."
