Newark Smiles exceeds the standard of care in the dental world prior to, and continuing on, since covid 19. Speaking as a patient who has served in the dental field for 20 years, their level of cleanliness, professionalism, and state of the art care makes them stand alone in their field. I have never met a more united team, who collectively care for the well being of the patients and staff in all aspects of their practice. Every decision is made with intentions to provide a positive and safe experience for everyone who walks in their door. The genuine approach to treat every person they come in contact with as if you were family, is the grass roots mentality that has credited their growth and positive reputation in Licking County. If only 10 starts was possible for this review.

Dr. Shah LITERALLY saved my teeth, after a botched procedure from a (former) dentist I was seeing put me in constant pain. Thank you for being the hero, Dr. Shah!!! In addition, Dr. Shah has called me after every procedure (it was a multi-step process to reverse the damage), just to make sure I was doing alright. That is pure class, caring, & professionalism. I did my research before finding a new dentist, and I can tell you, this one is the BEST. I strongly recommend Dr. Shah & the entire Newark Smiles team, as they are all amazing!!

Dr. Shah and his staff are AWESOME people. I recently had to get a few cavities filled and mentally I don't do well with the process. However, Dr. Shah was a very caring individual that helped me through this process. He and Mandy (who filled the cavities) were polite and very pleasant individuals to be around. I can't stress enough how they made my experience so easy due to their positive personalities and excellent work ethics. Newark Smiles is my new home for my teeth and I'm very thankful I found them! Newark Smiles is what you'd expect a dentist place to be - kind, compassionate, energetic, happy, & driven! They exceeded every one of those! Glad I found them!

-Hans H.

They have treated me so well for so many years. I really appreciate everything they do and how kind they are. Every worker I’ve ever encounter has been a joy.

-Barbary S.

The entire staff is so willing to do whatever is needed to make you feel at ease. I was in for an issue that happened over a weekend. The squeezed me in and were able to get me fixed up!

-Kimberly G.

These are the best people, super friendly, very Thorough and very gentle. I would 100% recommend this dentist office to everyone because they truly are the best!

-Katie S.

This is the best dentist office around! Everyone in the office is extremely kind and makes you feel so welcomed. I came in as a new patient from another office and I was treated like I had been coming in since I was a kid. Dr. Shah is so patient and makes being at the dentist as painless as possible! I highly recommend Newark Smiles!

-Melissa P.

Dr. Shah and Hutchins go above and beyond to make you feel unique and individual. Special touches such as follow up calls after procedures and "thinking of you" cards after an illness show how much they care for you as a person.

Cap came off my tooth on a Friday afternoon. I called and they told me to come in. Got there about 2:15p. I had 2 of my grandkids. A tech watched them while the cap was fixed. I left after the 3:00p closing time. Everyone was so pleasant. Could not have had a better experience!

-Marianna C.

Thanks to the staff at Newark Smiles I now have a beautiful smile. I never realized how many different styles there were to choose from and the staff helped me pick out a style well-suited for me. Dr. Shah even called to check how I was doing after each procedure. The staff ladies were as excited as me about this change. Thank you Newark Smiles!

-Linda R.

Had an exposed nerve on a back tooth. The doctor was very low key and friendly. I was in and out in 30 minutes and had very little pain. Recommend them highly. I am going back for another extraction next Friday. I highly recommend Newark Smiles. Great “professional” service !!

-Roger H.

Had a super cleaning at the dentist! Everyone at Newark Smiles is friendly and makes even going to the dentist fun. The toothpaste you gave me to use is already helping my sensitive teeth. Thanks

-Sue G.

First visit with Dr. Shah involving filling or work other than regular cleaning visit. Done in about 2 hours with crown in place. Dental assistant was excellent. Crown color excellent, tooth coverage to gum excellent. Dr. Shah even called the next afternoon to see how everything was. Impressed with Dr. Barickman's choice to add Dr. Shah to the office while he transitions to retirement. I should be set into retirement for myself for hopefully many years

-Thomas G.

I was somewhat nervous since the last time I had to have any dental work done was years ago. Today I had to have a crown prep and even though it was a two hour appointment, I was made to feel comfortable and I absolutely felt no pain. The crown was made right in the office & my tooth was completely done when I left. Dr. Shah and staff were wonderful! Thanks to all

-Joy F.

Hands down the best dental office I've ever been to.  Dr. Shah and his entire staff are absolutely amazing!  Looking forward to many more years of being a patient here.
