    I had a great experience with this dentist. I went in for general cleaning and it was the first time i experienced a dentist doing the initial cleaning himself! I hate having to wait for the doctor/dentist they completed my full x-ray exams and cleanings within an hour! The office is also really nice.

    Though a bit far out if you live in Central/Downtown Austin it was a pretty quick drive. It was a great office, clean and modern. Dr. Nazim Shahi was efficient and kind. Staff was very nice.

    Dr. Nazim’s office was sparkling and clean with a great atmosphere. I was greatly warmly and felt like everyone was very accommodating. The doctor and his assistant were very thorough and collected a lot of information about my health history. They were clear about their recommendations and plan for moving forward. Would recommend.

    I have never had such a thorough dental exam. Dr. Shahi was wonderful and very thorough with his exam. Typically the cleaning is done my the dental assistant, but he did the whole cleaning himself. The staff were lovely as well, and the space is pleasant.

    Wow! We've been going to Austin Modern Dentistry for almost a decade because we were too lazy to switch. Every time we went in for a cleaning the staff was different, which wasn't a good sign to me. Why go somewhere for years when you don't have one dentist who knows you and your history? My sister switched to Dr. Shahi using Opencare, and I followed suit after she raved about him. I had a great experience as well, and, hands down, the BEST CLEANING I've ever had in my life. Next up is getting our mom switched over! We're never going back to Austin Modern Dentistry!

    From someone that has a bit of a fear seeing a dentist I had an amazing experience with Dr Nazim Shahi and his office staff. The office staff is a true first impact of an office. So excited to have a new dentist after 15years. Thank you Dr Shahi

    I am so glad that I also referred my sister to Dr. Shahi. I visited him this morning and he was incredibly thorough. Unlike other dentists where I felt mostly handled by other staff with a quick pop in from the dentist who seemed like he/she was already halfway out the door the minute they walked into the room, Dr. Shahi asked lots of questions and gave me the opportunity to ask lots of questions as well. He even came to the front and reviewed next steps during checkout as well. My mom just had an appointment last month at our old dentist, but 100% her next appointment will be with Dr. Shahi. My sister is already booked for January.

    He was very through and although some dentists would have gone ahead and done work on me, he was more concerned about getting me the right help. He even came out personally to escort me to the room I would be in and was concerned about my medical conditions.

    Dr. Shahi was great! Although he speaks at a rapid rate of speed, he is very knowledgeable and explains everything very clearly and thoroughly. I like that he uses both xrays and pictures to enhance his explanations. He is very thorough and detail oriented. He also seems like a genuinely warm and caring person. His staff is great and the hygienist did a fantastic job! I’d highly recommend this dental office.

    Dr. Shahi was very friendly and accommodating. I had not been to a dentist in many years, but he and his technician, Ivette, put me at ease and helped me understand the importance of maintaining good dental health. He was informative and didn’t come off as lecturing me.

    Dr. Shahi is incredibly professional and excels at keeping you involved during the cleaning and check-up procedures. I felt at ease the whole time, and he took great care to explain what he was doing and why in a digestible manner. The rest of the staff at Central Texas Oral were very friendly and willing to help me navigate administrative stuff. I certainly plan on going back, it was a phenomenal experience.

    I had a really great first appointment with Dr. Shahi and team. Offices were easy to find with abundant parking. I received initial paperwork via email well ahead of time so I was able to bring them with me. The appointment itself was efficient moving from the introduction, x-rays, check-up, cleaning and checkout very smoothly. Dr. Shahi was informative and easy to talk to. Glad to have found my long-term dentist in Austin!

    The doctor took the time to sit and chat in his office before any x-rays were taken or dental work was performed. Dr. Shahi also went through my x-rays with me in detail and answered all of my questions.
