Great for moms with kids

I live in the Metrowest area and was referred to West Somerville Dental Associates and absolutely loved it. I got a crown but I took my kids in for cleanings. One got sealants and another had a cavity. They have a train table and DVD player in a kids space (huge for moms). They gave me an ipod to listen during treatment and a hot towel to wipe my face afterwards. I felt like I was in the Ritz Carlton. The best part is they took my insurance and I had no copays for my kids. And they gave me free whitening with my new patient exam. It is worth the drive moms!


New Owners & Dentists

Dr. Bourgeois is gone and West Somerville Dental has new doctors who are awesome! They remodeled and it looks beautiful. My crown is great and I felt no pain. I have since brought in my wife and kids. This is back to what it used to be and the neighborhood is very happy!


Satisfied Customer

I had not been to the dentist in over 10 years due to previous bad experiences with dentists. However my friend recommended West Somerville Dental so I decided to give them a try. They were very accomodating to my schedule, quite professional, and their low pressure and caring attitude made me feel totally comfortable.

I had complete x-rays and cleaning, and have also scheduled a follow-up visit for some additional deep cleaning to catch up on the 10 years of preventive care I missed. Overall they did a good job of explaining the condition of my teeth and offered realistic and practical advice for how I could take better care of myself. So far I'm quite satisified with their care and have already recommended them to others.


Great experience

I have been seen at West Somerville Dental 3 times now and have also taken my kids in for cleanings. I have never had to wait long, I was put at ease (as much as you can when holding your mouth open for drilling) and the care was thorough and fast.

My kids like the dentist and dental hygienists they saw. Their treatment plans were explained to me and I was given options on how to proceed.

I appreciate all the staff who made my experience a positive one.


Loved it!

I needed a crown and I have braces. They were able to call my orthodontist and make arrangements to access my tooth and do the crown and put my braces back in the same day, back to back appointments. The staff was very nice and I felt no pain. They use digital x-rays and they showed me exactly what they were doing and explained why. Dr. Alvi is very smart and made me feel relaxed. I took my kids in the following week for cleanings. They loved the train table and childrens DVD player. The receptionist even played with my son while I was in the back with my daughter. Great service. Thank you!

Dr. Bourgeois is a rude, arrogant and selfish businessman... NOT a caring, kind person as a dentist should be. I have never had such a horrific experience in my life. Please spare yourself.

Terrible. Save your time and your money and go somewhere else. Total incompetence and when they make a mistake, you pay and not them. Trust me.
