Outstanding, courteous customer service. I needed to have a tooth pulled, and the office brought in a specialist with 30 yrs experience as well as special, additional training in Germany and the U.S. Everyone in this office is superbly competent at what they do. The dentist herself, Maryam Horiat, has her degree in dentristry from UCLA, a great dental school. In addition to this, she has furthered her education in holistic dentistry and all related subjects, so you are receiving the best care available anywhere. We are fortunate to receive our care at Aria Dental.

Just experienced Dr. Horiyat's holistic dentistry magic, and I'm totally impressed! She's not just a dentist; she's like a dental wellness guru. From personalized care to natural approaches, my teeth and soul are happy. If you're into holistic vibes, Aria Dental is the place to go!
Dr Horiyat is the best of the best! She is highly knowledgeable in holistic dentistry. We searched out-of-state for pediatric dentistry with expertise in genetic defect, MTHFR. Dr Horiyat exceeded our expectations and gave us options for our 5 yr old that would not be genetically damaging for him. What a gift! We will recommend Aria Dental to all of our CA friends & family. Many thanks!
