Family & Neighborhood Dentist

Looking for a new dentist? We understand how challenging it can be to feel completely comfortable with dental care. We know it takes a lot of courage for many patients to make that call and schedule a dental appointment. That is why our mission is to help create an environment and culture of compassion and humor to put our patients at ease when they take that important step to improving their dental care or looking to improve their smile. 
Our care is comprehensive which means we don’t just treat one tooth, we examine your whole mouth, to make sure your healthy mouth contributes to your general health. We aim to establish long-term relationships with our patients so we can better understand their needs. We listen and hear our patients first.  We want to understand our patients and what their past experiences have been to match the right treatment for them. We don’t judge our patients if they haven’t seen a dentist in a long time and we will go the extra mile to make sure your visit is fun, full of laughter, and relaxing. Going to the dentist shouldn’t have to be a dreaded ordeal! 
Give us a call or send us a message if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule an appointment. Together, we can help you achieve your goal of good oral health and a fabulous smile to be proud of!  
We also take your health very seriously and have implemented COVID-19 protocols for the safety of our patients, staff and community.

  • Ben C., 5-Star Google Review
    "I'd vote 6 stars if I could! Dr. Zeynep Barakat was terrific! After several years of not seeing a dentist, I was a bit nervous. But Dr. Barakat and her do-everything assistant Alena were professional, gentle, knowledgable, and very good at explaining everything they were doing and seeing while working on my teeth. Humorous too! They have some great up-to-date technology to help them and were great at describing their progress at every step. As Dr. Barakat described my prior dentistry history, it was easy to see that she valued the artistry she found there - a good sign of what is important to her in her own work. While I only required a cleaning this time (again, gently performed), I'll certainly be back as a long-term patient. Thank you 32 Dental Arts!"

    "Everyone is wonderful here. I've become less nervous and fearful of my dental appointments ever since seeing Dr. Barakat. They're timely, I'm never waiting after I check in and if I communicate a need to be out by a certain time they always give me pointers on the best time to schedule and they are great at keeping to it."

    "I've been going to 32 dental arts for almost 4 years now and I've always had the best experience with Dr. Barakat and her amazing team. I came in with chipped teeth, cavities, and teeth that weren't cared for in multiple years (college years). She was there every step of the process to help and explain everything and anything I had questions or concerns about. The hygienist Aaron (or Erin?) Is wonderful and definitely makes getting my teeth clean a breeze for me. Never any pain and I always leave with a bright white smile. The office is also very nice and cozy. Dr. Barakat decorated each of the rooms in a different season-themed so it definitely gets me calm and relaxed walking in. Overall if you're looking for a new dentist's office, this is the place to go to."
