First, we’ll take digital photos of your teeth. These photos will allow you to see parts of your mouth you’ve never seen before, and will aid Dr. Khanani in determining your dental needs. We offer the latest in digital radiography, which means more comfort, better accuracy, and less radiation for you.

Janet A.

So happy that Dr. Waterfall chose Dr. Khanani to take over the practice when he retired. Dr. Khanani is a top-notch dentist with an old world bedside manner. He always shows the utmost concern for a patient’s comfort and called me in the evening after getting a crown put in last winter and after an emergency visit recently to repair a broken tooth  I would highly recommend Dr. Khanani and his friendly and caring staff. If you are looking for a new dentist you won’t find a better one in the area!

Michael V.

"Dr. Khanani recently fixed a cavity for me and the whole experience was a breeze.  Upon completing the work Dr. Khanani insisted that I call if I have any questions or concerns.  He even followed up with a phone call and text message that evening to make sure that I was pain free.  I can tell that Dr. Khanani is very passionate about his work and I would highly recommend Khanani Family Dental."

I want to change the perception of dentistry by building relationships based on trust.
