It seemed like I spent an hour in the chair & only had an exam. I was left alone for extended periods without an explanation.

Dr. Hira Chughtai is a very qualified dentist Id give her 10 stars if I could. Thank you Dr. Chughtai

She - and the hygienist - fantastic! The make receptionist, as well.
Best experience ever!
Really enjoyed Dr. Chughtai - She was very informative and helpful, and was very kind.
AS A NEW DENTIST TO ME I WAS ANXIOUS HOWEVER SHE WAS WONDERFUL, VERY CONSIDERATE AND CARING, THOROUGH, ADDRESSED ALL MY CONCERNS, I WAS ONLY IN MILD DISCOMFORT DUE TO THE NUMBING MEDICINE NEEDING TO BE USED BUT SHE CONT. TO ADMINISTER ADDITIONAL DOSES IMMEDIATELY WHEN I VERBALIZED THE SENSATION OF DISCOMFORT. SHE DID A VERY GOOD JOB IN PROVIDING CARE TO ME. I WILL DEF. SEE HER AGAIN.
She is constantly explaining what is happening during treatment. I appreciate that.

Best dentist ever experienced
very professional down to earth staff
Very confident & knowledgeable.
As in prior visits it was very good
She was an excellent dentist. I liked that she constantly explained what she was doing!
Dr. Chuggtai smoothed out my cracked tooth so I could be comfortable until we start the crown.
excellent service will patronize this location in the future
first time seeing this dentist and it was seamless. she seems very nice and profession. thorough with her examination. couldnt ask for anything more.
So friendly and thoughtful, ensured me multiple times that she would stay away from sensitive areas of my mouth.
good experience made me happy!
Dentist not caring or helpful when I explained I had high anxiety going to the dentist, kept telling me Im fine and it will only take 15 mins. - When I was there over 1 hour!
Being my first experience with this dentist, she took her time. Answered questions, and was very thorough.
I very much like this dentists thoroughness, always concerned about my comfort level during procedures and friendliness.
she explained everything in great detail.Made sure I was very comfortable and not having any discomfort while I was having procedure done. Loved her work ethic.
This was my first meeting with this dentist but I was 100% comfortable with her. She has great bed-side manner (if that is what its called in dentistry!) and I feel that she is very kind, professional, and made me feel welcome.
Dentist is great.
Filling a cavity, it went just fine, no problems.
I really think Dr. Chugtai is great.....her team is wonderful as well
Superb dental staff at your Franklin location.
Concerned that Im still having pain. Worried I may require further treatment.
i would never see any other dentist at this office!! she is the best
The dentist thoroughly explains what she will do & is open to any questions or concerns I may have. Both the dentist & the assistant were concerned for my health after treatment. I felt very they went above and beyond making sure I was okay.
This was my first visit. The doctor stopped and answered all my questions. I felt very comfortable.
I would have liked more information on the subject I came in for
Everything was explained before and during the procedure.
I just love her and her team. Good people, (great dr.)
The dentist was very knowledgeable and nice. Answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns. I will recommend her to all my friends and family. (Excellent experience.)
She was amazing. It took me longer to get numbed up, and she was so patient with me. I was starting to get a lot of anxiety that it wouldn't work, but she was able to calm me down and make me feel comfortable!
Dentist was very thorough and kind.
Very understanding Dentist
very courteous of my pain level. had no pain!
Options were revealed.
Everything was explained in great detail. I enjoy learning & understanding why we need the procedures we do - Root canal.
I really didn't have any prior experience with this dentist so it's hard to rate her
dentist was great
I only saw a dental assistant for impressions on this visit
My concern over 1 tooth was not addressed - I'll have to come back again.
Dr. Chugtai always makes sure that I understand what is going on. She is very compassionate and personable. I actually look forward to my dental visits.
was only seen for 5 minutes and father was not taken back with her so they had to re-explain in the waiting room to him as to what was needed.
She is a very pleasant dentist.
I felt very comfortable with the dentist and her assistant
i trust my dentist like I do my mechanic but like a mechanic I feel the dentist goes with the worst case scenario which is usually the most expensive.
Dr. Chughtai is very caring and concerned. She was very understanding.
I like my dentist and thus far I have only had a few interacts, but so far so good.
The dentist worked with me to consider lesser expensive options to those quoted for my dental needs. Very much appreciated.
Dr Chughtai was very personable, very good bedside manner, explained things very well, and suggested conservative treatment which I liked
Dentist took to long with the treatment the first time I was there, the temporary tooth only lasted 1 day and not the 2 weeks. The next day I was there for the other temporary tooth she burn my mouth with the light.
Pleased with dentist
very easy to talk to
Hira Chughtai was polite as she explained each step of the procedure right before & during the procedure. She was EXCELLENT!
The Dentist and hygenist were great!!!
My experience with the dentist was good. This was a first visit and there were no concerns to discuss at this time.
I was in quite a bit of pain because of an abscess tooth. Dentist was very considerate of that and very careful when examining that area.
Half of filling came out 4 days later
The dentist and the staff was very professional. Very pleasing.
I don't trust dentists.
An excellent dentist. Thorough and professional.
Very good, clear and helpful explanation of procedure.
She made it very easy to understand the procedures and what she would be doing at this appointment and the next.
This is the first time seeing this dentist.
They are awesome!
I can't say enough great things about Chughtai and her assistant. I was ashamed of my mouth and they made me feel not ashamed the answer was let's get you feeling better and fix your teeth.
The best part of this experience compared to the last two was I thought this dentist was FAR more thorough and did a better job too, even checking not just once but multiple times. I felt like the last two attempts to fix the same issues (filling, pain, etc) was all over the place and what lead me to come back numerous times to correct my teeth. I will now only see this recent Dentist/visit and no longer the past one for fillings and such.
Dr. Chughtai is the best dentist ever! I am deathly afraid of the dentist and I went without nitro for the 1st time because I believe in her. Dr. Chughtai is better than nitro.
My dentist explains all - asks if I'm OK as she is working. Makes sure all my questions are answered before I leave that chair.
Probably the best dentist I have ever had at Dental Associates
Very Comfortable Experience Overall...
Everyone was very friendly & repeat. It was a very good experience.
A very pleasant & good experience.
Great experience. Great dentist.

Very pleased with all aspects of the care
Very professional and knowledgeable
Not to confident in my dentist, but she is very nice. First had a crown, then came in for discomfort, (which I stated I think I have an infection) was told I did not, following week at next appt told I had an infection, next appt told I needed a root canel or tooth removed. I have been in pain since June 2014. Have not been able to chew on the right side of my mouth since June 2014.
Staff explained my treatment in full detail. Very good!!
Explained what I could & should have done. Gave me options.
I would recommend to everyone!!
everything was well done.

iI am very happy with the service provided.
The dentist is very caring. Wonderful lady
Awesome experience - thank you!
Great team - great job.
They were wonderful.
I enjoyed my detist and her staff they were wonderful!y last visit was the best dental visit I had ever had!
That's why I chose Dr. Chugtai - superb communication.
All of my questions were answered thoroughly and professionally. She made me feel very confident in the other doctors I would need to see for my implant.
Absolutely loved my dentist and dental assistant, but I hope the staff doesn't continue to push things on me that I've already declined.
She stayed behind me and talked to me....from behind the dentist's chair. I didn't appreciate that she never came and addressed me face to face.
Very good dentist - really impressed by her thoughtful!
I feel very confidant with dentist
Awesome staff! Best I have ever experienced!
Very thorough! Gorgeous staff and facility!
she was really good! hope to have her every time I come in!
I am from out of and had a toothache. I was a patient of Dental Associates in the past so I called to see if they would help me. Everyone I came in contact with was very helpful, friendly and professional. It was a very good experience.
very happy that she explained everything and what the outcome may be before any work was done....gave me several options and procedures and I made the best decision I felt that was best for me....last thing I need is work done that I don't really need or want...along with high cost dental expenses....
very pleasant and caring. I feel comfortable with her
Absolutely loved having a female dentist.
When dr. examined me after cleaning - noted a cavity. I asked if she could do it them - was told in about an hour - I decided to wait & 1/2 hr later I was seen.
EXCELLENT EXPERIENCE! Everyone was so friendly and I love my dentist - she was nice and gentle
everyone was very helpful and kind.
Everything went as well as could be expected for a tooth extraction.
Very kind & considerate.
Love Dr. Chughtai!!!! Her & her staff are the BEST.
Everyone was real nice. I guess I got there too early. Everything was explained.
Did not see the dental hygienist, per my request.
Explained everything to me.
Everyone was very professional and very helpful.
Facility was cleaned again while I was there finishing up my exam.
The experience was very painless so far and I would highly recommend D.A. to others.
Proper equipment was worn by the staff to protect me at all times.
Payment issues were very well explained to me.
My previous dentist (for 10 years) can not take the insurance my husband carries at this time. Unfortunately and a result of it, we have to choose a new provider. We choose Dental Associate. I am not happy that there was not flexibility in their schedules especially for the first time patients. I have to wait more than a month for my first appointment.
I tried to contact the clinic by phone to change the time of my appointment and I was not able to make to get in contact with no one. I dont like the cooperate system.
I am not happy with the cleaning of my teeth. Unfortunately because of insurance issue, I had not be able to go the dentist for almost two years. consequently, I know that, I really needed my teeth cleaning by a knowledge professional hygienist. Hoping to have an excellent service, we chose Dental Associates, but so far my first appointment was not what I expected. The time that the hygienist took to clean my teeth was only 10mins. I even mentioned to her an area that I had concerned, and she said that it was clean. I went back home, I used a purple tablet to reveled the unclean areas of my teeth and it showed that some of my teeth need it to be clean. I can floss my teeth at home and not paying for it. Usually I feel my teeth, my whole mouth clean after a cleaning, this time my teeth did not feel clean after that appointment. The hygienist never provided of education on oral hygiene.
The staff is excellent, takes time, explains things, and are all VERY FRIENDLY. I am so glad to be back.
my filling in the back when I am back in WI should be rechecked it looks 'patched' to me versus the other fillings.
Dentist was very understanding of my fears and demonstrated great empathy.
I made an appointment for help and was in extreme pain and all I got was worse pain because the dentist hit the exposed nerve I have with the dental pick and then just told me I would have to pain almost 10k tp proceed with treatment giving me help
The treatment was very good.
No meds. applied to gums before needle went in.
She gave me the "option" of doing the cap or the filling behind it and suggested starting with the filling. The cap was left for next appointment when I get a root canal even though cap and filling were scheduled for the same appointment that day.
Great experience. Liked the dentist.
Obtained pediatric x-ray material R/T previous problem with adult plates.
I was only scheduled for a cleaning, but the doctor took the time to explain my options in dealing with a chipped tooth, along with listening to my questions and answering them without hesitation or rushing through the conversation.
very great full having my dentist as my dentist.
Very capable doctor that shows above and beyond care and concern for the patient.
I had fear about how my tooth will look after filling, but I had very good experience with the dentist who clearly explained my options and also recommended best out of it.
Made me feel very comfortable
loved my dentist - she was awesome - explained every question I had
The dentist was very kind. I have not been to the dentist for 3 years because of previous poor experiences at another Dental associates. I was very pleased with the care and concern at this office. The dentist was nonjudgemental as I was very nervous
For many years I have had a problem with keeping a dentist appt. Within the first five minutes I felt very comfortable with the dentist here and knew she would be directing me in the right path for the best treatment for me.
Feel she did not listen to the full extent of where my pain was and how severe my pain was and misdiagnosed, and I remained in excruciating pain over the weekend which I tried to prevent, without medication.
Dr. Chugtai was very friendly, easy to understand and very helpful. I was happy she was able to find the time to see me at such short notice.
She found a lump and never checked other xrays to see if it was there before. Just ignore it, not happy at all. I now have a new dentist office.
she was very nice and let me ask as many questions as I needed to fully understand and feel comfortable.
Dr. Chugtai did a nice job on fillings (cavities) on that day.
I cannot say enough nice things about Dr. Chughtai. She is very kind and caring. Further, she does fabulous work. My teeth are beautiful again. Thank you Dr. Chughtai.
She never spoke with me - about my treatments.
I felt very comfortable with Dr. Chughtai
The Doctor has addressed all my dental needs.
I scheduled so I could see Dr. Chugtai.
The only time I remember her talking to me was to inform me I would now need a crown on a tooth I just had filled. The cost is over $1,000.00; I have no insurance, so this won't be happening anytime soon. I feel as though everytime I go to an appointmen
The dentist spent more time gossiping with the assistant rather than speaking with me. She hurried through the exam with little answers to my questions. In and out - way too rushed.
I'm am very frighten of dentist's she was very concerned.
The dentist and associate were very friendly and made me feel very comfortable during the appointment.
All was good.
Dr Chughtai was very thorough and personable. I have no doubt she will do a good job
She seemed lke a very caring person.
Really liked the dentist
The dentist was respectful, empathic and a good listener.
All over I was impressed.
Awesome dentist and hygienist. X-ray person was fabulous too. Receptionist was extremely helpful.
