Hard to believe one can actually look forward to visiting the dentist, but in this instance it's true....

In the time I've been his patient, I have always been treated with the utmost respect by everyone in CitiDent, but the tone is obviously set by Dr. Amini himself. His first concern has always been my care & comfort, and not just the obvious issue of pain management. Like most of us who need more than routine dental care, finances are the next issue, and he and his staff are right there to work with me and my insurance company to overcome any obstacles to receiving necessary care in a timely fashion. Even when things don't go quite perfectly - for instance, the occassional appointment scheduling mix-up (for which I usually bear some responsibility.....) - CitiDent has been more than accommodating in correcting problems.

The results of his care and concern are obvious in my smile, but not just the teeth themselves. It's the way I feel knowing that a truly professional practice supports my dental health. I highly recommend CitiDent and Dr. Amini to anyone needing dental care - and, in my opinion, it's worth the trip into San Francisco for the best care around.

After making an appointment online 4 weeks prior, I was notified at 4:50PM the night before by email that my appointment was cancelled, without explanation, and that the next available appointment was 5 weeks away. This was after my wife and I had been receiving dental care here for the last few years! The dental care is good, but I prefer to go to a dentist who cares about his/her patients more and doesn't run a practice like a money-making machine.

I had my permanent teeth by the time I was five, and within a year I fell face-first over my bike and broke them both in half. Ever since that day, I've had to return to the dentist repeatedly to replace these teeth. After a recommendation from a co-worker, I went to Ben Amini at Citident to have these crowns replaced. My teeth has never looked BETTER!!! These teeth are so comfortable and match the rest of my teeth perfectly! On top of that the office is great, everyone is in a great mood; ALL the time. My favorite part of visiting Citident is listening to "Liquid Metal" on XM radio while getting my teeth fixed. If you live in San Francisco, and have teeth, there is no reason NOT to go to Citident.

Pros: EVERYTHING!!! Great staff, close to BART and MUNI, skillful expertise... best.. dentist...ever

Cons: They don't do taxes?

Dr. Amini has been my dentist for the past 2 years.

I have had extensive work carried out. I have been a bit of challenge but Dr. Amini has been so thorough and his work absolutely first rate. My teeth look better than I ever could have dreamt of. I can't thank Dr. Amini enough - [when I first saw my new teeth it was like a scene from the Swan!].

The entire experience at Citident is fantastic - it feels like a really tight knit team all with a consistently friendly manner - from the warm welcome from the receptionists, through to the modern, clean treatment areas and not forgetting helpful Naz in billing.

I recommend Citident to all my friends and my mother is coming over from England in the New Year to take advantage of the wonderful treatment [and the weak dollar!].

I have been seeing Dr. Amini for a little over 3 years. I always have a positive experience with him and his office staff. Recently, I had a 10 year old crown replaced. I WAS AMAZED AT THE DIFFERENCE IN QUALITY between the two crowns. The first one was to big and didn't match the other front tooth. It stood out and was quite noticeable. Dr. Amini, not only matched the size perfectly, he sent me to the lab so that they could customize the match and make the tooth look exactly as the other front tooth. I've never been happier. People have already noticed the change. I would recommend Dr. Amini and his practice to anyone who wants high quality work done at an affordable price and demands great customer service. I THINK THAT'S EVERYONE!!

This is the best dentist I have ever been to. They are always on time, efficient, thorough and friendly. They also the time to check your insurance coverage before performing extra services and let you know the cost so there are no surprises. This dentist also uses the best technology.

Dr Amini is one of the best dentists in the Bay Area. I always had problems with my teeth in the past. I just wasn?t borne with strong teeth. Unfortunately on the top of that I went through some dentists that were nothing but butchers that did a horrible work in my mouth that needed to be replaced in a matter of months. I?m talking about bridges and crowns that had to be replaced up to 3 times at my own expense. I?m talking about thousands of dollars. I get irritated just by writing about it because it all came out of my pocket because I didn?t have dental insurance. Then 10 years ago I met Dr. Amini. He?s been my dentist ever since. He is not only one of the nicest guy you ever meet but one of the best dentists as well. He has a very high tech office. Great location right off Bart or Muni. The office is clean, cozy and you can even access the internet while you wait to get numb. His staff is professional and friendly. They have a little camera that takes picture of your tooth and you can see on a screen. Dr. Amini tells you exactly what?s going on pointing to the image, your options and gives you the best advices. He is a Virgo with extremely attention to detail. The work he does is beautiful and he will match the fillings exactly with the color of your tooth. You will leave his office with a great smile on your face.

My headline says it all - and no I do not normally take time to write reviews.
The fact is I am a 54 year old male who had significant dental problems after years of fear of going to the dentist. I met Ben Amini in 1998 and liked him but was panicked. We discussed pain - and he does have completely pain free expertise with teeth.
After that first visit, I have been a patient for 10 years! Get this - my teeth were so bad, I started out with several root canals. Not one bit of pain ever! Ben and his super sharp team have - over a decade - built me a new set of porcelin teeth - and given me the ability to smile BIGTIME!
You will dig the style and the surroundings as well as the people. The office is super San Francisco contemporary. Each of the chairs has internet, plasma screens, email capabilities - and XM satellite radio! IHis clients are as diverse as San Francisco.
The Team is the best. They take insurance and help you maximize benefits. They work with your schedule. They are no-doubt THE STATUS DENTIST OFFICE! Walking into Citident is a reprieve from the outside world - almost spa-like. Citident - Ben Amini is a brilliant professional who can do everything from pulling a tooth to doing an implant to building you the whitest brightest smile in San Francisco - er in California - er in the USA!
Got any more questions? My name is Bob Babbitt. I'm the guy who now has the nice smile and super white teeth!! If you want to call me, I authorize Citident to give you my number.

Pros: Everything - location at 22 Battery - near Montgomery BART

Cons: not one

I was very much amazed how painless and hazzle free visits to dentist can be. Other Dentists can learn a lot from Dr Amini. I actually found the process from my initial phone call to my actual visits to his dental office extra-ordinarily pleasant. He is extremely knowlegeable, very personable, and goes out of his way in providing extra service. My opiniion of him and his practice is based on several visits to his office. I am usually reluctant in refering friends and family to any practiioner, but in Dr. Amini's case, I have eargerly refered friends, family and my adult son to him. It was a joy to have discovered his dental practice and without any question my search for a GREAT dentist is over.

The procedures was fully explained to me and all alternatives considered. In addition every aspect of the insurance converage.. including options were thouroughly explained ..
I highly recommend him- Shehu

Many of us have had the experience where we felt we were going more to a mechanic than a dentist. Citident is the only dentist that I?ve been to in the city that I know I will receive high quality service and at a fair rate.

I?ll be honest. Twice, when I was with out insurance, I took some advertised dentist?s introductory offers in an attempt to save some money. Once, I could tell during the check up they missed a cavity and I came running back. The other time, I could tell the ?other? dentist was trying to sell me the London Bridge, and again, I came running back to Citident.

Dr. Amini?s office has always focused on building a relationship with his clients. His staff is always friendly and he creates a comfortable atmosphere for his clients. I?ve always had my options clearly presented to me and have always been giving the opportunity to make an informed decision and participate in my own care.

Also, his office has always happy to work with me when needed.

Frankly, this is the only dentist I?ll go to. And I?m always recommending his office to my friends.

Best Regards,

Seth Breedlove

Pros: Always cleary explains options in a non biased way. He understands the long-term relationship is what is important.

I found this office online based on the recommendations and great reviews. Everything from making the appointment to my experience during my visit and examination was a five star quality. Everyone there is very nice and Dr. Amini is really nice and professional and informative. The office is very impressive with the latest technology in dentistry. I was very comfortable and did not feel any pressure from the treatment manager/coordinator, unlike some other reviews here. I am very glad to find this dentist because it's not my most favorite thing in the world, but these guys actually made it fun.

Pros: Friendly, Professional, Clean, In-network with Insurance

Cons: None

I just relocated to San Francisco and broke my veneer on a Sunday. I searched on line and located Dr. Amini and was able to be seen by him the very next day.

The office is very modern and nicely appointed. The staff was accommodating and helpful as they registered me in their computer system. I was seen almost immediately after checking in and my veneer was immediately addressed in the modern exam room (they have flat screens on every dental chair). He examined my broken tooth, took an x-ray (digital) and looked inside my mouth with a digital camera and was able to recommend the appropriate treatment.

He determined that another veneer was able to be done, saving my tooth from being grinded away and crowing it, something I was afraid of.

The procedure was very quick and professional and I was able to listen to music as he worked on my tooth. The dental assistants were very knowledgeable and very efficient, I was literally in and done in less than an hour, temporary and all. He even made a custom temporary which looked as good as my other veneers (yes, I have nine more, but they are MINE). Thanks to Dr. Amini no one noticed anything happened and could continue my day to day activities without being self-conscious about my tooth being cracked in half.

The office was clean, modern and classy. The dental chairs have internet access (you could surf the web or check your email if you have time) and was immediately attended to by an assistant. Dr. Amini?s bedside manners were very professional, personable and knowledgeable. Although I saw him for any emergency, I was seen and treated like I have been a patient of record for years, very VIP.

I will definitely be a patient for life and highly recommend anyone needing a dentist to see Dr. Amini, he is not just a dentist but also an artist. I could not imagine my permanent veneer looking any better that what he made in five minutes as I waited, very impressive.

Dr. Amini has been my dentist since 1998, when he was practicing on Sutter Street. When he opened his practice in 2001on Battery Street, I followed him because he has changed my entire perception about going to the dentist. I was frightened of dentists and did not go to one regularly for most of my college years and professional life. I was a major project and he gently and proficiently fixed my teeth and took away all my anxiety and guilt that I was carrying over the years from not going to the dentist. Thank you Dr. Amini.

I must admit this was the best dentist experience I have had in my life. Dr. Amini was recommended by our HR person. They got my insurance break down before my first appointment and when I showed up they had everything ready. The office is very high-tech and clean. The before/after photo album of the patients that were treated by Dr. Amini shows some of the cosmetic procedures he does, and they look amazing.
The xray technician, Darren, is a very nice guy. He made sure I was very comfortable during the whole process. Dr. Amini is very informative and explains everything. The dental educational video and the camera, that shows the teeth while he explains, were very helpful. I am going back to replace some of my old metal fillings. I will write another review and tell you how everything went. I am sure I will have great things to say. So look for my next review.. next week!

Pros: Efficient, Gentle, Clean, UCSF Credentials

Cons: none So Far

I was surprised how unethical this place was. I had asked if my first appt. would include a cleaning and was told, "Yes" by the front desk. Instead of getting the standard cleaning, I was forced to hear about how I should get all sorts of pricey procedures. When I asked about the cleaning they told me they had run out of time and never do cleanings for the 1st appt. Essentially the front desk lied. During my cleaning appt, I was given the same sales pitch again. When I declined to sign up for the procedures, I was given the fastest teeth cleaning ever, w/o even a check up. It was appalling.

My experience with this dentist was very short. As a new patience I wasn't expecting to be treated in such way that I was forced to drop this dentist and go with an other one. The receptions/ assistants are rude. I called three times to make sure they had me on their file and they have always been unhelpfull and rude. One of them also suggested me that I was welcome to change dentist if I wasn't happy (are assistant supposed to say something like that) to a new patience?). When I asked her name twice she provided the wrong one. I wrote an email to the dentist directly complaining about how rudely I have been treated. He suggested to change my plan if I wasn't happy with the DMO. I don;t think that the assistant will be nicer with patiences or are they nicer only with PPO patiences. Not only the assistants are rude but the dentist is no happy to provide a service which he should provide DMO. I changed dentist as kindly suggested by his lovely assistant.

Dr. Amini and his staff made me feel very comfortable from the moment I called to make an appointment to the examination and procedures. He is extremely thorough and explains everything along the way, and his staff is very friendly and put me at ease. My billing and insurance were explained to me by the manager in great detail with patience. The hightech and top of the line equipment assured me that Dr. Amini is concerned with his patients receiving the best examination and dental work possible. I would highly recommend this office and I myself will be a life-long patient.

Dr. Amini,
I contacted your office to schedule and teeth whitening appointment yesterday. The associate I spoke with told me that the fee was normally $600. We discussed that I'd had the process 2 years ago, that I was using trays but wanted a laser touch up to get them maximum white. She asked to have someone speak to me further.

Today I received a call from a very confrontational woman. When I attempted to explain my needs, she interjected enough times that I asked her to please let me finish my thought. She countered and stated that she had something to say and to let her say it. She reiterated her initial comments.

I told her that I'd like to speak with Dr. Amini. She stated that she owned the practice and that you were her husband. I told her that was fine, that my reason for wanting to talk to Dr. Amini was to voice my disappointment in the way the call was handled. I had been very happy with the service I'd received and hoped to return. At that point, she hung up on me.

Suprisingly, she called me back twice only to berate me.

Sadly,

I made an appointment for an exam and teeth cleaning. I received my exam but they wouldn't clean my teeth, even though they polished my teeth. I challenged the fact that I believed having my teeth polished without a cleaning seemed backwards. They informed me that I would receive a teeth cleaning on my next visit. Meanwhile, I received a dental plan that included $2,800 of dental work needed in my mouth.

I was disappointed by the lack of attention to detail that Dr. Amini took. I paid $300...(also they make you pay up front before any service)... for an exam, xrays and cleaning and did not feel that he thoroughly examined my teethe or that they were cleaned to the level that I am used to. He also seemed very rushed and not like he really cared about the quality of work or making sure I was comfortable.

I, too, found this dentist on citysearch after recently moving to San Francisco. The staff was friendly and helpful from the beginning, and Dr. Amini is wonderful. There is a very friendly specialist on staff to assist with billing/payment matters, and the entire office is incredibly helpful in this regard. I will continue to see Dr. Amini.

I found the experience at this office very pleasant. The admin. staff were very friendly and got my insuance benefits prior my appointment. I was running a bit late for my first appt. and they were totally accomodating. they flossed my teeth and scraped my tongue ( never done that in a dentist office--very cool stuff), then polished my teeth before the examexam which was very comprehensive. We talked about my fillings, gums, and gaps . I had braces as a teen but now my teeth are getting out of line. Dr. amini is a certified Invisaline ( bad spelling) dentist. The staff helped me out a lot in the processing of my insurance. I just finished my appointment and replaced my yucky silver fillings with tooth colored fillings. No pain, look great. I highly recommend dr. amini, and can't wait to get my teeth straight again.

Cons: none

I was surprised by the "Walk-ins Welcome" sign that greeted me upon arriving at the office. The forms were very long, and asked more personal questions than I thought necessary. I was surprised that the Dr. Amini did not meet with me first to generally understand my current dental situtation. I had x-rays first (traditional, not digital), and an odd perfunctory cleaning (no scraping of tartar). He then looked at my teeth with the video camera, but never conducted a thorough exam (i.e. with a pick, looking at each tooth and the gums). He was perfectly pleasant and certainly knew enough about dentistry, but I left the office a bit worried about the dental treatment I had agreed to have.

In the end I decided to go to another dentist, who was far more thorough (along the lines I described above and expected).

I chose this office to get a second opinion about my smile. I could not afford to pay 15000 to get ten veneers and gum surgery. When I called to make an appointment the receptionist was very caring. My cosmetic examination with Dr. Amini was very comprehensive and he gave my several options including Invisilign. Without shaving my teeth as other dentists I went to recommended, Dr. aminni started me with Invisilign and I am currently wearing my seventh set and am very happy with the results so far. My teeth have actually moved and rotated so much they are not crooked any more. I still have six more months to go. My appointments are only once a month and twenty minutes at most. My boss is happy too that I am not taking a lot of time off work. I highly recommend this office. Thanks again.

I have been going to Dr. Amini's practice since 1998. I love the new office on Battery st. He has the same great staff over the years. Great bedside manner and he gives great shots--no pain at all. The new satelite radio option while on the chair. Great idea for patient comfort.

I was recommended to Dr. Amini by my co-worker who had her veneers done by him a few months ago, her smile was amazing. I went into my consultation and was greeted by a very professional staff.

During the consultation Dr. Amini placed some temporary bonding on my teeth so I could get an idea if veneers were right for me. I was instantly sold.

I was then explained all the costs up front and when the procedure was done I did not get hit with any "hidden costs".

I now have my Hollywood smile but they look so natural no one could point out what I did; I am very impressed by the whole process.

The office is the most modern and high tech dental office I have ever been. The staff was awesome and treated me like I was the only patient there. Highly recommended, Five Star place!!

I searched for a dentist from CitySearch and Dr. Amini was highly recommended.
The office is simply a state of the art. They had already obtained my insurance information and all my benefits ahead of time. Very efficient. I had one cavity, not bad for not seeing a dentist for four years. They accomodated me by giving me a choice to come back or finish it that day. I chose to do do the filling. The assistant gave me a selectionn of CDs to choose from. From vivaldi to Metallica. Once I was numbed up, they started the cleaning followed by the filling . I didn't feel a thing and everything went very smoothly. I really "enjoyed" my stay at the dentist, something I always hated. And I got my free tooth brush and floss. I highly recommend Dr. Amini and his staff.

Bad experience. The cleaning was done in 5 minutes. Very rush. The dark spots on my teeth surface was not cleaned at all. They didn't care. No tooth brush, or floss was given away at the end as most other dental office normally did.

Overall: Strongly Not Recommended. I'll never go there in the future. Never.

After being without dental insurance for almost 2 years, I finally decided to take care of my mouth the moment I was enrolled in this elusive benefit program.

I was referred to Dr. Amini by a co-worker after my previous dentist butchered my mouth, and filled a cavity (down to the nerve). Me being a dentists nightmare (read: moneymaker) with all my unfilled cavities, Dr. Amini and his staff have always been able to give me same day or next day appointments, I've been there about 5 times total. The facility is very modern, and the receptionists are very understanding yet highly professional.

Heres the best part - the mouth camera. a tiny camera is used during diagnosing problems (or lack off, for the lucky). So thats what a exposed nerve looks like. Just kidding, sorta.
Nonetheless, I give these guys a big recommendation.
