 Marlborough, MA Dentist - Reviews and Patient Testimonials - Dr. Sanjiv Nehra

Over the years Dental Associates of Marlborough have received many positive, first-hand accounts from just some of our satisfied patients. On this page you can see why so many have trusted Dr. Nehra and our talented staff as the best dentist in Marlborough! 
Experience was the best, as always.
I am so elated that by following Chris Martin’s advice I was able to abate a worsening condition which is now improving and will not require painful surgery.  As a business owner myself,  I would be elated if I could manage my business as efficiently and professionally as you manage yours.  I’m not easily impressed and I’m really impressed.  Thanks to Kristin, Pat, Barbara, Chris Martin(I love her) and of course the Big guys, Dr’s. Ahearn and Nehra.
With sincere regards

My family and I have been patients of Dental Associates for many years and have always received wonderful care from everyone in the office. However, last month Dr. Nehra went so far beyond the call of duty, I felt compelled to share my experience. My wife and I have three children, two year old twin boys and a one year old boy-so needless to say, our household is quite a busy place. Last month, we went out for the first time since having children to celebrate my wife's birthday and came home from dinner to find that one of the twins had fallen, knocking out a tooth and badly damaging another. Furthermore, we were unsure if he had broken the bone just below his nose. Keep in mind that it was 8:30 on a Friday night, our son was upset and in pain, and the hospital emergency room recommended that we wait until the next morning to see a dentist. This is where the story becomes remarkable. My father in law looked up Dr. Nehra's phone number and called him at home. He explained what happened to my son and Dr. Nehra felt that it shouldn't wait until the next day as the hospital recommended. In a display of genuine concern and pure humanity, he asked that we meet him at his office as soon as possible so he could examine my son. It was after 9:00 PM by the time we met him. Dr. Nehra was so kind, warm, and professional, not just with my son, but also with my wife and me. Dr. Nehra was calm and steady despite being surrounded by the chaos of my screaming son and his blubbering parents. He took the time to establish a gentle rapport with my son and even made balloon animals which put us all at ease. Dr. Nehra gave my son a full examination, including X-Rays, and determined that the damaged tooth could not be saved. Odds were that the tooth would have fallen out shortly on its own, but Dr. Nehra was concerned that he could have choked on it or that it could have caused him distress or pain if left in. This is where the story becomes more amazing. Dr. Nehra must have called in all the favors he collected during his career and brought in an oral surgeon, Dr. Euger Lin, to extract the tooth and stitch up my son's damaged gums. Now remember, that it is close to 10:00 PM on a Friday. Throughout the entire ordeal, Dr. Nehra and Dr. Lin were calm, supportive, kind, and incredibly gentle. At no time, did either doctor even hint that they were inconvenienced. Instead, they showed genuine concern for my family's well being. They expertly guided my family through one of the worst experiences we'd ever had and I'll forever be grateful to both of them. In our new world of shoddy service, low expectations, and impersonal relationships, Dr. Nehra showed real humanity and compassion that I didn't think existed any more. Dr. Nehra is a true professional and I cannot imagine trusting my family's dental care to anyone else.

I had an amazing experience at this office! Staff was friendly and professional. They made me feel very comfortable. They were up front about costs and procedures. I would definitely recommend Dental Associayes of Marlborough.

Daniel C

The entire team is top-notch - professional, talented, and so pleasant. As a long-term patient, I feel like they are extended family and have always been so thoughtful. Fabulous practice, can't imagine ever going anywhere else. I recently had a crown and it was such a joy to get it all done in one visit!

Leslie A

My latest appointment was a check up, my hygienist, Kris, is always awesome and I have to admit that it's definitely because of Dental Associates that I don't need anything extra done at this time. They really help you get your teeth to the best level they can be! I look forward to going to them and I'm so happy to be smiling openly again because of them.

Robert B

Excellent place to go for any dental issues! They're well organized and run on-time. I've always had the best (and gentle!) care since I've been going there. Highly recommend them.

Dorothy C

So after almost 10 years of not going to the dentist, I was finally convinced (suckered in) to going to Dental Associates of Marlborough. BEST DENTIST EVER!!! My first visit as a consultation was actually pretty good, and my super mega cleanings were painless, Thank you Martha!! And Now I just had a filling, on what was apparently a pretty gnarly cavity, in and out in 45 minutes, no pain, just the annoying drill, but you get over it... Dr. Nehra, you're awesome!!! Really!! I hated the dentist, and with one fell swoop, I enjoy my dental visits!! Thank you!! If your reading this people, and you need a new dentist... seriously don't think about it... just go... you will thank me!! I'm thanking my girlfriend every time I go!! From the Office ladies, to the hygienists, the Dr. Nehra himself... could not have a better staff! Thank you all sooo much!! -Ty

Don B

Every time I have been in to Dental Associates of Marlborough, every single employee has been heartfelt, kind, and fun. The staff at this office provides a level of service far above any other office I have been in for years. I bring my 4 year old son here, as well as go for myself. They are phenomenal with kids, my son looks forward to going to the dentist! I have anxieties about dentist due to bad past experiences, but they are always understanding of that and every time I leave I am smiling. This business is truly a gem in Marlborough

Very Pleaseant and a wounderful experience. Pleasesd to have found such a great Dentistry. Everyone is extremely friendly and Knowledgeable.

Nelson P

I brought 2 young boys in for the cleanings. For the 2 year old, it was his first time visiting the dentist. They were immediately at ease when welcomed by Pat and Kristen in the waiting room. They loved grabbing a water from the fridge in the waiting room too :) The time in the dentist chair was interactive and fun for them! I'm so thankful for the positive experience and continue to refer friends to your practice. THANK YOU!!!

Julian B

I had not been to a dentist in many years and because of some pain in my mouth, was compelled to make an appointment. I found Dental Associates of Marlborough via a Google search, and all of the reviews were positive. Now I know why. The office was clean and modern. The staff was friendly and helpful. It was a pleasant experience from start to finish, and I always felt as if I was in the hands of professionals.

Brian L

Fabulous, as always! Such a kind and courteous staff, and always top quality care and follow-up! Cannot imagine a better dental team! You always feel special with this team! 2

Leslie A

Dr. Nehra and team were FANTASTIC! I had a filling 2 months ago and I'm legitimately not in pain. They made sure to explain everything to me. They were great!!!


I love this place! The staff are always friendly no matter who ends up working with me. It is a clean and welcoming place and they are in the process of redoing each room to correspond to a different Boston sports team, which is a great idea and looks amazing! I recently moved to a town about thirty minutes away from this location but instead of finding a new dentist, I decided to stay with Dr. Nehra and his staff. Thanks for always making my experience a pleasant one!

happy patient

By far the best dental practice I have ever been to! The staff are so welcoming and provide the very highest care to their patients. I cannot recommend them highly enough! Dr nehra is the most wonderful dentist and I no longer dread visits to the dentist!

Kelly H

You're simply the best dental practice I have ever experienced which is why I keep coming back and talk about you all the time.

Always an excellent and professional experience with the entire staff at Dental Associates. I learn something new every visit and feel like I have a team on my side concerning my overall health.

Tina L

I have been going at this office for few years and I have never been disappointed. The staff is very friendly, go above and beyond to help you out. The doctor is very gentle and careful. His work is amazing and he would personally call you to make sure you are feeling weel after a procedure

satisfied patient

It was a hygiene visit. Martha was excellent. She was professional, friendly & timely.

Michael S

From the the ladies in the office to Martha, and of course Dr. Nehra, it was the most Comfortable I've ever been at a dentist. Considering of course the last time I went was over 10 years ago, I haven't been happier to go to the dentist, they weren't looking to say you need to do this and do it now, they want to legitimately help. That's hard to find and I'm glad I went. Thank you guys! You're awesome!

Tyler J

As a new patient of Dental Associates of Marlborough this year, I'm impressed with the knowledgeable, caring, and conscientious treatment I've received to date, including a personalized plan, advisement, and preventative and restorative procedures. I'd definitely recommend Dr, Nehra and his staff to family, friends and associates.

Doug E

The staff are very friendly--actually nice to go to the dentist.

new patient

I travel nearly an hour to continue seeing Dr. Nehra and his staff because they are outstanding! Friendly, courteous, prompt, all in a great, updated facility with the latest technology. They make going to the dentist something to look forward to instead of something to dread! Highly recommended.

Jayme S

Great experience as always. Love Martha! Thank you!

Kristen M

It is always a pleasant experience at DAoM. I appreciate the time they spend with me and my children, and how they thoroughly explain how to adjust our habits to improve dental hygiene.

Ann L

Martha and Dr Nehra are excellent and I had a good checkup. Pat is also an amazing receptionist, she even called to let me know about parking in advance and gave me extra information about the whitening process; I think I will do it next time in March. Thanks!

Abby T

The entire staff at Dental Associates of Marlborough are always welcoming and just the nicest bunch of people you will ever meet!! The staff strives to meet our needs and couldn't be more helpful. We wouldn't go anywhere else!!

Michele P

I felt welcomed in which was very important for me. Also you were not taking decisions for me and let me decide about my health. This made me feel that we can work together in future.

Sohini G

Highly recommend!!! I've been coming to this office for over 24 years. It was wonderful then and just keeps getting better every year! Great for all ages.

Carol P

Another great visit! Love everyone in that office:) In fact, we are moving to Colorado but will be planning our dental work around visits home so we can keep our relationship with DAOM.

Karin M

Staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. Fit my son in for an emergency when he wasn't even a patient -but he is now, as will we all be! Dr. Nehra was wonderful - took his time and was very friendly, making both my son and I feel comfortable. Thanks!

Melissa E

Another great visit! It was a routine cleaning/checkup, but while I was there, they were able to squeeze in a fitting for a mouth guard so that I wouldn't have to make another appointment, which was so nice! I have always seen Kris for my cleanings, but this time I saw Martha. Both are fantastic and so personable! And Kris even took the time to come in and say hello and ask how I've been. :-) And, of course, Dr. Nehra was great, as always! And he also took the time to ask me how I've been. Everyone really makes you feel like you're right at home. It's wonderful! Thank you!

Tracilynne P

Chris M is a great dental hygienist. She is thorough and takes time to explain all the issues going on in my mouth and the implication they have on my general health. I appreciate the concern that she takes toward me and all the members of my family who go to Dental Associates of Marlborough. Dr. Nehra also takes the time to explain what needs to be done and why. I've seen quite a few dentists in 60+ years and Dr. Nehra is clearly in my top two. After our experience in Northboro, Dr. Nehra and everyone at Dental Associates of Marlborough (Pat and Kristin) have been phenomenal.

Bruce R

Always a great experience! A warm welcome at the reception desk, a great cleaning, a check-in with the dentist, and on my way. Also, I recently referred a friend to you. He had a great experience, and I was thrilled with the referral gift. Thanks for taking such good care of me, my family, and my friends!

Nia B

I appreciated Dr. Nehra's very gentle touch and his step by step explanations of the procedures he was using. I felt well attended to.


The entire team is professional and compassionate. Dr. Nehra is an expert at what he does: explaining processes in a clear and concise manner, respecting his patients, and showing empathy for patients' needs.

Gabrielle B

As always, my visit was exquisite. I have never waited very long to get in and get started. I always love the atmosphere of all the employees. When I am sitting in the chair, I enjoy all the great conversations with my favorite Dr. and assistant team, Dr. Nehra and Kristine. I have always felt welcomed and never pressured if I needed to change something. Like I have told them while I was there, I have never had a dentist, where I looked forward to my next appointment.. Never Change Team!!

Jeff H

This is a wonderful office that is everything one hopes for.... Friendly, knowledgeable, and Dr. Nehra is amazing!

Wendy S

Going to the Dentist is always a pleasure. From the moment I arrive everyone there is pleasant and professional. It is really nice how Dr. Nehra spends the time to get to know each one of his patients. I would recommend it to anyone.

Jen D

First of all: every office in the world needs a Pat like you have at your front desk! She is awesome and every time I walk in I feel like I'm walking into an old friend's place. Dr. Nehra- thanks for everything! You're an awesome dentist and going to your office is not as anxiety inducing as it has been going to other offices. You have an excellent practice and I tell everyone to go there!

Kevin S

Very professional and efficient but yet very friendly and relaxing. Martha and Dr did a wonderful job.

John Y

Another check up, saw more changes. They continue to evolve their practice and renovate their space to ensure they offer their patients the best treatment options / experiences in the rapidly changing field of Dentistry and oral health. Awesome staff, keep smiling.

John S

Always a pleasant experience. Never thought I would be saying that about a visit to the dentist! From the moment you walk in, the receptionists are comfortable to deal with and always greet you with a warm smile. The hygienist made me feel relaxed and did a very thorough job in explaining all she did while covering whatever might need more work on my part for future success. The doctor reinforced what had been discussed and answered all my questions. Overall, a very professional group of people who make me comfortable each time and, because of this, I return for every appointment without hesitation.

Janet S

I'm so happy because I finally founded the best team ever I want thank you all of you for the amazing treatment Everybody is so nice and professional and HAPPY :-D

Mychelyne O

I have generally had bad experiences with dentist offices, however the staff here remember my name, are interested in knowing me and my family, and are always thorough. They understand the importance of dental hygiene while staying in tune while staying in tune with today's fast paced world.

Josh L

Dr. Nehra and his team are exceptional! I have never enjoyed going to the dentist as much as I do coming here- from the warm welcome of the reception team to the friendly dental assistants and hygienists, the whole experience is really great. Dr. Nehra is knowledgeable and personable, and takes his time with his patients and makes sure they are comfortable and informed. I highly recommend this office!

Kevin S

Love Dr Nehra and the staff....always cheery, caring and professional. For someone who has fear about going to the dentist...this is a great fit for me, they make it a good experience "always"!!!

Marie O

They are all awesome. I forgot I have panic attacks when I see the dentist. They treat me like a friend just stopping by for a chat. They keep me comfortable do excellent work and educate me on my dental care without being condescending or mean. I love them all and think they are great.


I would highly recommend Dental Associates of Marlborough to everyone. All the employees are professional and very kind. Most importantly they use the latest technology in dental work. I rate them 5 stars with no hesitation.

Don B
