Oakland Dental Care was great all-around!

Oakland Dental Care was great all-around! Friendly service and Dr. Bastani is knowledgeable, gentle, and trustworthy. Having been ripped off by dentists in the past, I'm picky about who I go to and I can highly recommend Dr. Bastani and his crew.

the last dentist i tried on my dental insurance plan was crap (ahem, family dentists), so dr. bastani's office was the next closest to me. i admit i was a bit nervous given my last experience... but this office was just fine! my appointment ran on time, the equipment was up to date, and everyone was friendly and professional. yay for finding a decent dental office!

By Kimberly T. on December 31, 2016 10:45 AM
I chose Dr. Bastani because of the reviews of other Yelpers, and I was definitely pleased. Most of the other dentists on my dental plan had horrific reviews and most of my coworkers have switched to different dental plans because of their bad experience with plan dentists, so I was a bit worried. However, I had a great experience. As others have mentioned, Dr. Bastani brought out his laptop and showed me the x-rays as he explained them, then did the cleaning himself. He was very gentle during the exam and cleaning, and he checked in with me to make sure I was doing ok. I've had other experiences where I've been told to "open wider", but here I was not asked to keep my mouth painfully wide. The dentist answered my questions and explained what he was going to do and the results. There was NO pressure at all to buy anything or come back for unnecessary services... He told me that I could go to an orthodontist, but that I don't need to and for my condition it's just a personal choice. He certainly didn't try to sell a deep cleaning or any other additional services

There is one thing i care about when i choose a dentist, handle with care. Dr. Bastani and his staff excel at that from the beginning to the end of each visit. Moving here from New York I was looking for a new dentist and found Oakland Dental Care thanks to its convenient location. Initially, I had my teeth cleaning done there a couple of times and considering that i am fairly sensitive to pain, the gentle hands of Dr. Bastani convinced me to actually get a tooth implant through him. I can say that the whole process went through smoothly and i am extremely happy with my new tooth and dentist. Needless to say, I will be back.

Parking is a little tough to find, but if you dont mind spending a few bucks you can pay about $6 for 1 1/2 - 2 hours right accross the street in a lot. Im a new patient, and since I had only a 4 day choice to make it to their office between a two week period they scheduled me with no problem. I am terrified of dentists but both Dr.Bastani and his assistants are calm, comforting and stand up to the meaning of "cool". Everyone EXCEPT the front desk girl get !00%. She has an attitude and tries to sell everyone toothbrushes even after saying no 2 times. Other than that, great office, great people.
It was difficult to get my initial appointment
By justin g. on December 31, 2016 10:42 AM
It was difficult to get my initial appointment scheduled (took 3 calls), but once I finally got to see Dr. Bastani, things went well. The Dr. was very careful & thorough and took time to explain all of my options. While some of the front desk staff, the intake process (wish they'd sent me all that stuff so I could've filled it out at home) and the static-y music could use improvement, it's really the dentist you're there for, and I consider Dr. Bastani worth going back for.
Dr. Bastani makes "us" who don't

After so many terrible dental
By marcia m. on December 31, 2016 10:39 AM
After so many terrible dental experience and can't bother with UCSF dental school I finally found Dr. Bastani! Met with him two weeks ago and he said I needed a filling and a regular clean (was told that by UCSF). Was nervous yesterday because 1. terrible experience with another dentist, 2. I had major back surgery and still find it difficult to lay back in a dentist chair, 3. I have TMJ and cannot keep my mouth open for too long. First he inquired if I had taken my medication beforehand, second I felt a slight prick when he was numbing me compared to the pain I usual feel in the past, third he kept checking in with me and forth he made me take breaks by closing my mouth ever so often. After my procedure I ask about a space (caused by my terrible experience) and he gave me the cheapest option. UCSF and other dentists has suggested an implant or braces. He opt for a bridge which is the cheapest of all three. Thank you Dr. Bastani for such a GREAT dental experience!!!
I switched my family to Oakland Dental Care
By francesca a. on December 31, 2016 10:37 AM
I switched my family to Oakland Dental Care due to the excellent feedback on other reviews about Dr. Bastani DDS. It took me a while to get my insurance in line but we finally began to use this practice about a year ago. My first work was extensive bridge replacement (long story not worth repeating). Dr. Bastani understood the problems (my gums have aged faster than I have - a LOT faster) presented by the work, did the replacement bridge, fitted me in record time and for a record fee (lower by 66% or the estimate from my previous dentist). I was very pleased with the work and have gone here for cleanings since - no more problems yet thank goodness. My husband just had a filling done by Dr. Bastani this week and is very pleased with the result. I highly recommend this dental practice which is located in downtown Oakland. It takes a while to get set up in the system if you have insurance as the office is not as automated as some but it's worth the wait. Excellent customer service from gentle and talented Dr. Bastani who seems truly to be a nice person. Feel free to contact me for more information. 5 Stars for Dr. Bastani, 4 stars for the inefficient start up procedure.
