Family & Neighborhood Dentist

Our care is comprehensive which means we don’t just treat one tooth, we examine your whole mouth, and make sure your healthy mouth contributes to your general health. Don’t neglect your dental health during the COVID 19 pandemic! We have found an increase in dental problems during these stressful times including periodontal disease, broken teeth, and other oral conditions requiring attention. Just because something doesn’t hurt, doesn’t mean it is not getting worse. We take your health very seriously and have modified our office scheduling protocols for your safety. If you haven’t been to our office since we reopened our doors, here is what you can expect for your visit.

Don't hesitate to give us a call or send us a message if you have any questions, or if you would like to schedule an appointment. Your oral health is our priority and we will help you keep your teeth beautiful and healthy.


You are welcomed by a calming garden and fountain the moment you enter our building. We also have a Comfort Menu of items to choose from to help you relax during your dental treatment.

  • 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."
  • Heming D., 5-Star Google Review
    "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."
