I went there yesterday for a dentist appointment. It had been 20 years since I’ve been to the dentist. The staff there are absolutely wonderful I had x-rays done full mouth and then Dr. Green came in and and checked my teeth for cavities. Lucky for me I didn’t have any cavities, Then I went to see Becky Cain for her to clean my teeth. It was done in a timely matter and I really appreciate the great service that I got at Flagstaff dental I will be back in two weeks.

I had my tooth extracted under sedation yesterday. I can't believe how quick and painless it was. My husband said I was only in there about 10 minutes. I don't remember a thing. Today I feel ok, with slight discomfort, just taking paracetamol. I didn't need to be nervous after all! Thank you so much for doing such a fantastic job.

Customer Testimonials

Had my tooth out under sedation this morning. I was very nervous but I can honestly say the experience was absolutely so much better than I imagined. The nurses were brilliant and the dentist himself knowledgeable and kind. Don't pay any attention to any of the negative reviews. They were professional and I couldn't have asked for better care. Thank you.


Went here today for a wisdom tooth removal. There was not much left of it and it had to come out. I’m extremely nervous with the dentist. I went in this afternoon, nearly passed out in the chair (not even exaggerating!) 30 seconds after the stuff went in I was half asleep and didn’t care what was happening! All I remember is prodding and pulling. Then he stopped and I asked is that it? And it was done!
Dr Naveen Sunkada did a brilliant job and so did all his team, from the receptionists to the nurses. Sorry I was too out of it to thank you after, but thank you all very much!!


Would just like to say a massive thank you to Dr.Naveen Sunkada for the quick & painless removal of my wisdom tooth yesterday. I was extremely anxious & unsure on arrival that I would even be able to go ahead with the extraction, Dr.Naveen Sunkada was calm & patient & reassured me, along with the lovely dental nurse that all would be fine. He had my tooth out in 5 seconds max, husband was sat in the waiting room & couldn't believe I was done so quick 😀 it's now the day after & I haven't had to take any painkillers as yet & have no swelling, unbelievable. I was so worried after reading some of the negative reviews but would have no hesitation in returning here now, had been putting this off for months & even cancelled appointments. Thank you Dr.Naveen Sunkada.


I have used Azhar Bakhshi a few times for treatment. Each and every time he has looked after me and completed some extensive oral surgery. The nurses that support him have always treated me well too. I would highly recommend him. Very personal service completed with great empathy and professionalism. Also a great follow up service.


I feel as though I should leave a review as I was absolutely terrified of having my extraction. Especially after reading some of the negative reviews on here. I searched through all the reviews, for a review with my dentists name mentioned in it and couldn’t find any, this made me feel worst. I had delayed my appointment as much as possible. For some reason I am terrified of dentists and the bad reviews made this worse. I spent many evenings before my appointment in tears and arrived at my appointment in tears also. The nurses were fantastic, they made me feel at ease. I was sat in the chair and it was over with, in what seemed like seconds.
Dr.Naveen Sunkada extracted my tooth, In less than 12mins (according to my husband, I don’t remember) I didn’t have any pain during and very little pain afterwards. So there you go, anybody else that may be searching for a review for Dr.Naveen Sunkada. I would highly recommend him. He did the job, easily, efficiently and without causing me any pain. It was nowhere near as bad as I had feared and I’d got myself in a state over nothing, I wish I had the names of the amazing nurses as I would like to thank them for calming me down. Don’t be put off by the outdated building or the negative reviews. I appreciate that this is just my experience, but I wish I hadn’t delayed my appointment for so long, or let the reviews worry me so much. If I need any more extractions I will definitely be returning here. Thank you


This was my first time to have teeth extracted by sedation. Having had the scratch in the back of my hand, the blindfold placed over my , treatment began. I can honestly say that I felt no pain and or anything else. I was so surprised. All of the staff who attended to me during and after showed care and attention at all times. I do agree that bigger and better premises would be an asset to all.
