"First of all...I don't like going to the dentist! Maine Center for Dental Medicine is a good experience. They do a very good job and I always learn something new every time I go. The wait time is always reasonable and everyone there always seems happy and it is a positive atmosphere. Dr. Khan is terrific, my hygienist Mary Lynn is the best! And Nia takes such good care of keeping all the billing and insurance straight. I am very pleased with all aspects of this office. So if you don't like going to the dentist...give them a try."

"It is always a pleasure getting my teeth cleaned with Mary Lynn!"
"Everyone was helpful"
"Friendly and fun place to be, as far as the people are concerned. Very efficiently-run office. Greeted by the dentists personally while in the waiting room."
"As always, the care provided by the Maine Center for Dental Medicine was excellent. Jake, my dental hygienist, is a true professional who always pays close attention to the details in order to provide the best care possible. That professional attitude extends throughout the Center's staff - the other people that I interacted with during my visit (front desk, billing & dentist) provided the same high level of care."
"Everyone was so pleasant, helpful and friendly. Gail and Dr Imam did a great job and explained everything so I understood! Very professional!"
"Ever since I've been going to this office I have felt as though they truly care about me as a patient. They go above and beyond any other dental office I've been to. Very thorough, I never feel rushed out, very holistic and affordable. Jake always spends a lot of time with me and is so kind and efficient. Amazing dentist office! I've never liked going to a dentist so much."
"Everyone at MCDM is patient centered; it's nice to walk in and find everyone smiling and happy. Mary Lynne is a gem. I always feel like a member of the family when I am there. Thanks for the great care!"
"My experience with this office was nothing but amazing. From the receptionist who was friendly and helpful and saw that I had been entered into their system so the Professionals in the other rooms knew that I was there. The Doctors of the practice acknowledged I was there and was concern that I was not feeling well. The Dental Assistant came out and directed me to a chair so I could be waited on and then she made sure my medical information was correct in their system. She asked about my concerns. Afterwards the doctor was made aware of my issues, and came into the room as soon as possible. He took the time to see what needed to be done for of my teeth and surrounding areas. When I went to check out the receptionist was very pleasant, and she took the report from the dental assistant and scheduled an appointment for another time. The next day the office manager called to see how I was feeling and asked if they was anything I need from them to feel better. This office goes out of their way to see to their patients teeth and wellness of the mouth, and they check surrounding areas that are connected to the mouth as a whole body wellness. I would recommend this office to any one who is looking for a well informed, friendly, and professional practice. They will not be disappointed."
"My experience with a dental hygiene visit with Mary Lynne Ryder impressed me with her skill and knowledge. My teeth received the best care they have done anywhere: the most up-to-date, careful care, and focused on optimizing the individual experience and promoting practices that will lead to dental health. Thank you!"
"I've been going to this practice for about 20 years, first with Dr Vermette and now with Dr Kahn. They have done great dentistry as well as Mary Lynne as my hygienist. I prefer a biological practice so this works well for me. I've traveled an hour each way all these years, now live in Florida but arrange an appointment when visiting Maine."

"All my life I have hated to go to the dentist but I have to say my visit was great. There was no fear and my check-up was over quickly."
"MaryLynn was running behind and although I was more than willing to wait, Jake came out and offered to see me. I love the atmosphere and the folks at Maine Center for Dental Medicine!"
"Yesterday, I had a crown done with Dr. Khan. I am nervous with every single dental procedure but Dr. Khan's wonderful disposition and happy attitude always helps put me at ease. He was excellent and the bonus was I had all the prep work AND crown made and put in the same day. As I always say, it is a long drive for me to the dentist, but it is well worth it. I completely trust this staff and highly recommend them to anyone! I've been a patient there since I was probably 4 years old and think I will be for life as long as they continue to be as advanced and excellent as they are!"
"We need some fish and wildlife magazines in the waiting parlor"
"Thank you so very much for all you have done for me over the years. You have always had my best interest in mind regardless of the situation. I have become an outspoken advocate of the removal of toxins from my system. The difference in my overall health has been incredible. Please do not hesitate to ask me to share my experience with anyone who might be having doubts about going through the removal process. It has been well worth the expense, time, and effort.

"A wonderful group of professional people. The atmosphere is very relaxing and my dental hygienist is the best!"
"As always an A++ rating with MCFDM. Wouldn't go anywhere else."
"As always, Jake was extremely professional and thorough."
"Dr. Imam, Nya, and Gail were all very attentive and welcoming today at my initial patient exam. They explained everything they were doing, showed me around the office so I could see what it is they do and how they do it, and discussed all of my concerns with me until I was satisfied and felt like I understood everything. They made me feel like I was included in my dental health, and gave solid advice on how to take better care of my teeth and overall well-being. They described future treatments and procedures in detail, and provided estimates so that I can make fully informed decisions without feeling overwhelmed. I definitely left smiling!"
"It was the coldest day of the winter the morning I arrived. Every person I dealt with was warm and engaging. The exam was the most thorough in terms of education and tests I have ever had. An over all excellent experience."
"This was my first appointment and I was so pleased with everything, from the hospitality (coffee at the dentist? Yup), friendly, chatty staff and the thorough exam. The technology is the latest...and Dr. Imam sat with me to talk through what my goals were. Delightful, most fun visit to the dentist I've ever had."
"Great job! Thank you Jake. Hope Mary Lynn is well soon."
"I broke a tooth and the office got me in same day. We made a plan and I appreciate all the kind and competent people."
"As always, cleanings are thorough, targeted and effective. Miss seeing Dr. Vermette but receive excellent care from all the staff."
"My experience could not have been better: reaching the office before it opened via voice mail, having a call-back, my emergency dealth with by staff/Dr. Kahn, and my always wonderful hygienist, kind, competent, skillful and intuitive! See you when the grass is growing and I hope not before then."
"Several years ago I underwent tests ordered by Dr Vermette to see what could and could not go in my mouth. As a result I been extremely comfortable as a patient and grateful for the extreme care given to my needs"

"We have been to over a half dozen dentists over the years and have never had a dentist or office that is so good with children. They are so amazing with all of our children. We have found our dental home!"
"Very friendly and professional staff ! Jake, you're the best."
"Our dental assistants were friendly, skilled, and informative making our visit enjoyable. We missed Dr. Khan."
"I would say that the Maine Center For Dental Medicine. was wonderful. I went because I had broken an edge of one of my teeth. I went thinking that they would just smooth off the sharp edges of the tooth. They did more than that. they repaired the tooth. Dr. Iman was able to do it with no Novocain to boot. I was one happy camper. You'd would love this office. The office personal is wonderful and helpful. The girls that help the doctors make you feel relax and welcomed. The office is really clean and pleasant environment to wait in for your appointment. They even have coffee or tea for you to enjoy if that is your choice. I would tell you that if you choose this office you would make an excellent choice for your health. I think they are one of the top dental practice in the state. You will be well taken care of."
"I had two fillings and a meeting with Jake on the same day, with about a half hour in between. Enough time to have a cup of coffee from your Keurig. I was pleased you had REAL half and half and a choice of natural sweeteners. I had an amalgam filling removed, and appreciate all the precautions everyone took to keep themselves safe, as well as me. It took a while to get the filling smoothed out on the bottom, but Dr. Imam was patient, and worked with me to get it right. I love the computer before and after pictures of my teeth; it makes me feel involved in the process. I had a wonderful appointment with Jake. She explained everything, and again, I felt involved in the care and management of my teeth. She was able to show me how I can use materials I already own (a waterpik) to improve the condition of my teeth and gums. I am sure my next inspection in twelve weeks will be much improved! A hygienist at another practice told me NOT to use the waterpik...I feel confident to use it after Jake demonstrated its correct use. I appreciate the holistic approach to teeth and the body, and use of natural medicine and supplements along with traditional treatments. I feel that this practice utilizes technology appropriately (not to much, not too little) to make the patient experience comfortable and successful. Thank you."
"The entire staff was friendly and professional. My appointment was on time and the information that I received was very helpful."
"I had been a patient of Dr. Vermette's practice for decades. When he retired I became a patient of Dr. Kahn. I am just in awe of the care I have experienced there. I went in for a cleaning with the incomparable Mary Lynn. I told her about a problem tooth and she immediately had Dr. Kahn check it out. When they knew I was about to have surgery, they were adamant that I was going to have that tooth fixed asap and it was taken care of that very afternoon! This practice will give you expert care in a supportive environment."
"I'm a physician who comes from hours away to get my dental care here. I've had dental care in several states and can say I've never been more pleased with my care than I have been here. This is the best place for dentistry in Maine, and perhaps New England, and well worth it."
"Each visit promotes my dental health and general health. Dr. Imam answers each question patiently and thoroughly. His practice and technology is state of the art. I am working on my master's degree in nursing and feel grateful to find holistic dentistry where the fillings are 100% safe. I learn something new in every visit too. Dr. Imam's team is also top notch, making sure I'm comfortable and explaining what to expect and why they use certain procedures. They are helpful and patient with my insurance and with booking appointments, and very considerate when weather or car trouble prevented me from keeping appointments."
"It was fantastic great care from the time I walked in the door till I left fantastic personal"
"I'm pleased to share... Maine Center for Dental Medicine takes great care of me and has provided the best service I could have ever expected, imagine right here in central Maine! I know I have the best!"
"My husband David and myself just had our 6 month visit with Jake, our hygienist on Tuesday, April 22nd. We were happy to see Nyla again at reception and missed that Cathy wasn't there. We are always so well taken care of by these two on our arrival and on our departure and from home when we need to change or make an additional appointment. We were seen on time, a little early even. In following Jake's expert and kind encouragements we are seeing improvements in the overall health of our gums and teeth. Dr. Sharma was able to fit David in for a quick dental fix. This was so appreciated that it didn't necessitate a second visit as we have a 2 hour drive to the office. Everyone treats us so well, and we are greeted like friends or family at the reception desk and by all who work here, even those we've yet to meet. We also meet great people in the waiting room! We refer everyone we know to this office because of the extraordinary dental care that we've received and the especially warm, caring people who work here. We also appreciate that the doctors are interested in learning from patients what holistic methods they are using on their own that work well for them. We are grateful for the very good care that David has received from Dr. Vermette that allowed David to keep some teeth that others would have given up on. We wish Dr. Vermette and his wife a very happy (semi) retirement and Dr. Kahn and Dr. Imam a very happy new home in Maine."
"It was an excellent teeth clean and dentist consultation. Highly recommended."
"it was a great experience, good job!!"
"Am very happy with the care from Dr. Kahn, the best in my long career in Dentists' offices. Gentle and patient and skill ful as always. Able assistance provided by Dr. Kahn's assistant. Have a big garen space to share if Dr. Kahn or his wife have some interest in gardening (organic for forty years) Also would like to plan a dinner sometime to welcome them to town in my house or another place nearby. Food choices? also welcome to to use our shop oven which reaches very high temps if you want to make some Nan or other dishes. Maine folks tend to give people plenty of space and privacy but we are also hospitable if people want to meet people. Let me know. Would also like to consider and organize the replacement of the metal partial with the nylon plastic version for just under $1000.00 quoted today.warm regards, albie barden"
"Usual good visit and treatment."
"Thank you Maine Center for Dental Medicine for another thorough hygienist appointment. You have helped me tremendously over the last 9 years! My fears of dental care have become non-existent, due to the professionalism of your knowledgeable team and commitment to the overall hygienic well-being of each individual patient! Thank you so much. LB, Maine"
