Dr. Soltani is a true gentlemen with a calm smiling demeanor that will put your dental anxiety at ease. As someone who has long grappled with dental anxiety even the thought of a routine dental appointment would send shivers down my spine. However my recent dental sedation experience at American River Dental not only alleviated my fears but also transformed my perception of dental care entirely.From the moment I stepped into the office I was greeted by a warm and inviting atmosphere that immediately put me at ease. The reception area was adorned with soothing decor soft lighting and comfortable seating and a wonderful saltwater fish tank. The receptionist Nicole welcomed me with a genuine smile offering reassurance and understanding as she guided me through the initial paperwork.Before my appointment I had a consultation with Dr. Soltani who took the time to listen attentively to my concerns and explain the sedation options available to me. Together we discussed my medical history anxiety triggers and different treatment plan options. Dr. Soltanis compassionate approach and thorough explanation instilled a sense of confidence in me knowing that I was in capable hands. He reassured me that I would remain comfortable and relaxed throughout the procedure monitoring my vitals every step of the way.Fast forward to my treatment day. Before I knew it the procedure was complete and I was gently roused from sedation by the caring dental team. As I gradually regained full consciousness I felt a profound sense of relief and gratitude wash over me realizing that I had just undergone a dental experience unlike any other. Not only had the sedation dentistry effectively managed my anxiety but it had also provided me with a level of comfort and relaxation that I never thought possible in a dental setting.Reflecting on my experience I couldnt help but feel immense appreciation for American River dental that had made such a profound difference in my life. Their dedication to patient comfort expertise in sedation dentistry and compassionate care had truly transformed my perception of dental visits. Thanks to their exceptional service I left the office with a newfound sense of confidence and a brighter outlook on my dental health journey.

TLDRUnder Dr. Soltanis leadership at American River Dental the transition from Dr. Acheson has resulted in a complete lack of respect and communication with patients. Despite promises of follow-up inquiries about orthodontic treatment went unanswered with staff making excuses and Dr. Soltani refusing phone calls. This disregard for basic customer service makes this practice unworthy of your business.--------------My experience with American River Dental under Dr. Soltanis management has been nothing short of a nightmare. After Dr. Achesons retirement the transition to Dr. Soltani was accompanied by a complete overhaul of the front office staff signaling a shift in professionalism and patient care.Despite discussing orthodontic treatment with Dr. Soltani in January and undergoing scans the promised follow-up never materialized. Instead I found myself endlessly chasing answers only to be met with empty promises from Nicole and Tara who seem to excel only in lip service.Frustrated by the lack of communication and mishandling of my case I requested a follow-up with Dr. Soltani only to be told that he refuses to take phone calls and insists on in-person visits. When I expressed my disbelief the staffs response was nothing short of dismissive. Eventually they requested I email Dr. Soltani because he said he values me as his patient and would like to resolve the issue. Spoiler alert - he never replied.Its clear that Dr. Soltani and his team have forgotten the fundamental principle of customer service. Their blatant disregard for patient concerns and refusal to uphold basic standards of communication are appalling.Save yourself the frustration and seek dental care elsewhere. American River Dental under Dr. Soltanis leadership fails to value or respect its clients making them unworthy of your business.Needless to say Ive ended my association with ARD and am now happily receiving care from another practice.

My sister-in-law visited this practice and was humiliated when she expected to be treated with compassion. Instead of receiving a professional exam they told her to stay off of WebMD and stop self diagnosing. It took 10 days for the office manager to reply to emails about the service. Patient care is NOT a priority here Do not recommend.

It always bothers me when I come across health care service workers that lack compassion and professionalism. Imagine coming into this practice worried and confused and expressing that to the staff only to be told that you need to stop self diagnosing yourself based on WebMD. Frustrated and humiliated you reach out to the office manager and are left without a response for 10 days. I would never recommend this poorly run office to anyone.

I am Iraj. I have been in the clinic once and everything went well that time but after that I have called them several times to get an appointment and do the treatments they advised me to do. Every time I call them they say the Dr is busy and we will call you back shortly. But they never call back. Here I would like to say that there are so many good dental clinics in the city and I am wondering that if you do not admit a patient for treatments due to any reasons why not just tell Why you do promise which never happens. I dont recommend here for dental treatments. Thanks

Dr. Soltani is a miracle worker He carefully studies imaging to create a plan and the sedation dentistry was incredible and easy. His office staff and assistants are top notch and make you feel comfortable and welcome from the first step in the door. I highly recommend Dr. Soltani his practice. Thank you

This was the first time in years that I have been to this office. This appointment was for my disabled adult son. Everything was handicapped accessible and the entire office of professionals were very kind. The doctor was compassionate and listened to my son whom has had bad experiences with dental work. I feel this was a good visit and the start of a great relationship.Thank you for such a nice experience
