Dr. Narkhede only sees one patient a time, guaranteeing a highly attentive and invested patient experience in which your personal oral health goals are the sole focus.
The first time you visit Dr. Pankaj Narkhede at our Lake Forest, CA location we will discuss your health history, past dental experiences, and any related anxieties you may have about dental care. Dr. Narkhede carefully listens to his patients' concerns and thoroughly answers all of their questions, lending his expertise to help them fully participate in their care.
To help us serve you best, we need to know what your expectations and needs are for treatment. Urgent concerns, like pain or a broken tooth, will be addressed immediately!
New Patients: Your First Visit
During your new patient appointment, Dr. Narkhede will carefully clean and polish your teeth using the advanced air flow powder polishing technique. Unique to most dental practices, Dr. Narkhede does the cleaning treatment himself instead of a dental hygienist. This way he can see each and every surface of the tooth and not miss any issues. Plus, he loves it!
The air flow powder polishing technique is a highly efficient technique that improves patient comfort by polishing without direct contact, pressure, heat or noise. If you are due for x-rays, we will take them beforehand.
Dr. Narkhede will discuss any important findings with you, and address all of your oral health concerns. If necessary, he will work on establishing a personalized treatment plan with you to get your smile back on track.
Evidence of gum disease or inflammation requires us to take a somewhat different approach. Before receiving a dental cleaning, your gums need to be healthy. The same day you visit, we’ll perform a full debridement and schedule a deep cleaning for another day. Our air flow powder polishing technique is superior to traditional periodontal treatments.
Your gums are the foundation to your entire smile. Keeping them healthy is important to your overall wellness, cardiovascular system, and respiratory health – and to your self-confidence!

By far the best! I've only seen Dr. Narkhede a few times however, I've seen several dentist in my life and never have I met a dentist like Dr. Narkhede. He is prideful of his work. You can tell by the effort he puts into each patient. He doesn't line them up out the door and jump from room to room. Each patient gets an individual block of time. Dr. Narkhede does all of his own work with one assistant. I've never experienced that at any other dental office. He is gentle and ensures you feel nothing. To top it all he has a great sense of humor and contagious laugh. I recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist with a more personal feel that does incredible work. By the way, I'm a cash patient. His prices are reasonable but I'd pay him anything to do the work I need. Make an appointment now!!! You'll love him!
