For several years I looked for a licensed physician to administer corrective cosmetic fillers to my lips. I was in a car accident that resulted in mild paralysis of the muscles around my mouth and nose, and needed to find the right person to help restore my smile. A few months ago I was referred to Dentistry For Life by the practice's office manager. I am incredibly thankful for having been referred to Dr. Rostami's practice as I now finally have the beautiful smile I lost long ago. Dr. Rostami was caring, compassionate and a wonderful listener. She chose the product that was best tailored to meet my needs, and I couldn't be happier with the result of her technique and expertise. Furthermore, Dr. Rostami thoroughly explained the procedure and what I could anticipate going forward. My experience was enhanced by the calm atmosphere of the office and the supportive and attentive help from the office manager. She made all administrative aspects of my appointment run smoothly, making it possible for me to focus on my procedure without worrying about paperwork or questions once I was finished. In addition to restoring my confidence, the experience was an exceptionally pleasant and comforting one. I'd highly recommend Dentistry For Life to anyone seeking a practice to service cosmetic and/or dental needs. I will absolutely be returning in the future, and look forward to my next visit.

I have regular perio hygiene appointments at Dentistry for Life every three months. This keeps my teeth, gums and mouth disease and pain free. Katie did a superb job with my perio and teeth cleaning yesterday. I then had a exam with Dr. Rostami - it was thorough and we discussed a small procedure to address an area behind an incisor. What I love about Dr. Rostami and her team is that their emphasis is to prevent dental disease and to address minor problems quickly. This keeps me pain free and my dental costs lower. I recently had a hip replacement. When anyone has a joint replacement your orthopedic surgeon's office works closely with your dentist's office. My doctors at Penn and Dr. Rostami coordinate my care very well. It is nice to have that peace of mind. It is also great that Dr. Rostami can treat her patients for everything from preventative procedures to the most complex - fillings, root canals, crowns, bridges, implants. Her practice also offers sedation dentistry. I like knowing that Dr. Rostami can treat me for my dental needs. The office is also spotlessly clean and tastefully decorated. That means a lot to me!

I was a patient of Dr. Dubin's (JFK Dental) before they moved here and eventually he retired. Leanne - the office manager is just terrific.

We moved to the "burbs - so I don't come here any more - but I was a patient for years and had some great cleanings by caring hygienists and staff.

Love. This. Practice. (Miss Dr. Dubin, though - he is living the life in Mexico now.)

Dr. Rostami does amazing work! I've been seeing her for a few years now for regular cleaning, Invisalign, and just completed veneer treatment as well. Dr. Rostami is meticulous, patient and really cares about her clients. When she was working on my Invisalign and veneer treatments, she thoroughly explained each step and always made time to address all of my questions, something I have not experienced with other dentists. She even called me back during the holidays when there was an emergency and also followed up the next day to see how I was doing and scheduled for me to come in. The office is always clean, welcoming and you will be greeted with a big smile from all the staff members. I highly recommend Dr. Rostami and her team of professionals for all dental care.

I have severe dental anxiety that kept me away from the dentist for many years, thankfully, Dr. Rostami's team welcomed me and exhibited a level of patience and understanding that helped me get the dental care I so desperately needed. I didn't have any pain during the procedure, and am very grateful for the care.

Going to DENTISTRY FOR LIFE was a revelation. Dr. Rostami and her team of professionals are fabulous. From the moment you arrive, they make you feel welcomed and safe. You get the feeling this is a good place, were you will receive incredible professional care . And.....TOTALLY PAINLESS. YES, NO PAIN!!. Starting with Rachael greeting you at the reception, then Le Anh, the manager. Lisa and Ruben assisting Dr Rostamy in doing restorative work to perfection. It is a dream, believe me.

If you were ever put off by other dentists, this is the place for you. They offer all dental services and provide sedation for those of us who have fears. I love this place! The entire experience is amazing. Each member of the staff is wonderful. I highly recommend them!

As quick prelude to this review, I am very (overly) fastidious about my teeth and smile. Upon my relocation back to Phila last year, I began searching for a qualified dentist who would and could provide me the high level dental care that I was requiring, including cosmetic dentistry.

After many visits to other area dentists, I was very comfortable with Dr Rostami. She was extremely diligent in her approach, listening to my goals in replacing a 4 unit front bridge and 4 crowns. Her follow up with the lab and with me directly, really assured me the smile I was looking for. She made additional recommendations that helped even improve the look, and hence my expectations. The fit and appearance of her work was truly outstanding. The whole experience resulted in amazing results.

I researched many dentists, and many had simply a lot more Yelp reviews than Dr Rostami, (one in the same building) but you will find that she is by far the best. If anyone one wants to talk with me personally, please contact the office to obtain my number. I will be more than glad to discuss.

In addition, the staff of Dr Rostami is also excellent. Her staff assistants are extremely knowledgeable and professional. The dental hygienist was completely careful yet very thorough. The office staff is very accommodating, and worked around my travel schedule, as well as helping me with billing questions, and alternate payment plans.

Tremendous dentist and staff.

When I was in the military, I had a bad dental experience. Since then I have avoided the dentist all together. Just can't take the anxiety. That is until last year when I needed an emergency tooth extraction and Dr. Rostami was able to get me in immediately. She is hands down THE ABSOLUTE BEST dentist I have ever been too. So much so in fact, I'm actually looking forward to improving my dental health as her regular patient. She is so good that I feel very little pain and my level of anxiety isn't near what it used to be for dental work. All of her staff are top notch and the atmosphere is very relaxing. I don't know how she does it, but she is amazing.

Dr. Rostami and everyone in the Dentistry for Life office is AWESOME. I went to Dr. Rostami after searching the internet for a place to get the best veneers. I could not be more happy with my new two front teeth and owe it all to Dr. Rostami and her team. I had to go back a couple of times because I was not 100% satisfied with the one tooth as it stuck out more than the other. Dr. Rostami sent back the veneers two times because she wanted me to be completely satisfied and for no extra charge!!! Dr. Rostami and her team are so wonderful and were always invested in my satisfaction from the moment I walked into the door. I couldn't be happier with my new smile and am so thankful that I came to Dentistry for Life for my veneers. I would recommend them to all!

Quanetta Milburn

I never thought I'd use "love" and "dentist" in the same sentence. Finally, a dentistry practice I trust! Dr. Maryam and her team are fantastic and so friendly. They are professional and took the time to sit with me and explain all the ins and outs of the procedures I was scheduled for. I highly recommend this practice.

"The thing I've always wanted to say for many years is that I wish I knew about Dentistry for Life before 2003. I went to other dental offices and they were not as caring and concerned about my dental care. I regret that I didn't come sooner to Dentistry for Life because if I came sooner, I would not have had experiences with other dentists that didn't care about me. It has always been a pleasure working with the staff at Dentistry for Life and I thoroughly enjoy working with each staff member. I am very pleased with the response from Dr. Maryam Rostami when I experienced a chipped tooth and she was able to see me right away. My experience with Dr. Rostami has been great and I look forward to coming back for my next dental visit. If you are looking for a dentist who cares about you and is pain free, then I recommend making an appointment with Dentistry for Life."

"Dr. Rostami went above and beyond to help me get a nice smile. she is very gentle and compassionate. I visited her office for a gummy smile consult. she explained to me procedure step by step in details. I couldn't have been happier with final result. I highly recommend this office."

A friend of mine had recommended to Dr. Rostami, and I am so glad! I thought I would never be able to find a dentist that is so caring and genuine. I can compare her thoughtfulness to a dentist I had back in Hawaii! She's makes me feel so comfortable every time I have an appointment. I actually look forward to all my visits! I have had an extraction of some teeth, and a 'flipper' was made in no time, so I could keep my smile! I am awaiting to have dental implants as soon as my gums heal. Thank you to Dr. Akasha, who will finish the procedure, I'm not a bit afraid. I have so much confidence in their knowledge, and I truly am so fortunate to have them!

I'm afraid of the dentist and glad I found dr. rostami. the service and staff are excellent. It feels like home and I would recommend them to everybody. my brother in law referred me here and I have been a happy patient since.

Dr. Rostami took over the practice of my dentist who retired. She is very kind and gentle. I don't worry if something happens, because she is very caring and helps a lot fixing any problems I have with my teeth. Wouldn't know what to do without her help.

Dr. Rostami took over for my dentist when he retired. She is very kind and gentle. A very personable doctor, she explains what she is doing or what needs to be done. I highly recommend her.

Dr. Rostami is the exact right mix of friendly and professional. She explains procedures very well and answers questions completely. As a very experienced dental patient, I am impressed by her training, dedication and competence. During my most recent visit, she performed my annual oral cancer screening, checked a potential past problem area for infection, and re-cemented one of my bridges. Her chair side manner is spot on as well. She speaks to her team respectfully and that makes the atmosphere in the office calming. The office has a very high end modern look and is immaculate.

Mouth cancer treatment and exam. Dr. Rostami has a pleasant and gentle chair-side manner. I am comfortable when she is examining me. The exam for mouth cancer felt like a face massage. I would and have recommended this dental practice to others. My hygienist, Erika, also cleaned my teeth, examined and measured my gums and gave me an antibiotic treatment for my gums. Erika has been following my periodontal issues for over a year now and there has been significant improvement.

I had an implant and few crowns done. I avoided going to dentist for years. Dr.Rostami and her staff took the time to get to know me and put me at ease throughout the process. I am forever thankful.

I havent been to see a dentist in years,due to a bad experience.Coming to Dr. Rostami has been by far thee best decision I couldve have ever made.Everyone here is just just FABULOUS.......Im so excited and look forward to my upcoming treatments

I did fillings, cleaning and oral cancer check. Treatment was enjoyable with them and painful at the same time. I definitely recommend this dentist for others.

I have gotten a cleaning so far by this dentist and it was very quick and easy. Great place!

Tooth extraction , wisdom tooth extraction , cleaning and fillings . My experience with Dr Rostami has been a success and I have been looking for a dental home for a long time and I have finally reached my destiny . She is very patience and she made sure that I understood what was going to happen before we started . I was also amazed because of my past experience how everyone in the office smiles and is so friendly they truly made my decision when I first came in the door.
