I am so happy that I found Dr Affara’s dental practice. He and his staff are professional and sincerely caring of patients comfort. The dental work that I have had done is amazing. I was embarrassed to talk or smile because of the problems with my teeth. I now feel better about myself. I look better. Thank you Dr. Affara.

If I could give 6 stars I would. Dr Affara is awesome. He and the staff are very friendly and very caring. They always make you more than comfortable from the massage chair, neck pillow, video glasses to watch a movie, chapstick, etc.

I have been going to Dr. Affara for many years and can truly say that he is the best dentist I've ever had! Not only is he a consummate professional who does exquisite and meticulous work, he is very caring and empathic and attentive to even the slightest discomfort you may have during any procedure as are the rest of his staff. His injections are truly painless (and I have very sensitive teeth.) He brings state-of-the-art dentistry to his practice using computer generated x-rays to guide his procedures and has an iPad with VR goggle that makes you feel like you’re sitting 3 meters from an large screen T.V. to watch Netflix movies and shows on a head-mounted display (HMD) while you undergo treatment!

I cannot say enough kind words about Dr. Affara, his staff, and my experiences at his practice. My family and I are treated like royalty every visit.
Jul 12, 2018
Fantastic care from start to finish. This is a great practice and I look forward to spreading the word! The patient is the main focus with a lot of surprising amenities such as neck pillow, vibrating chair, was offered a warm blanket and netflix but most importantly Dr. Affar. He is gentle, knowledgeable and has up-to-date equipment.

I am always nervous about the dentist, but right from the start, they made me feel comfortable, welcome and appraised of everything they were working. Dr. Affara was welcoming and supportive.

Smile Designers is a well run practice. In the years that I have been a patient each and every appointment has gone smoothly from scheduling to follow up. The office folk are wonderful, I have never had to wait beyond my scheduled time to be seen. Dr. Affara and his staff always check in regarding my comfort, understanding etc. during the appointment....they are a great group !

Everyone I met was very pleasant & friendly. I was informed on my dental situation and how they could help. As well as remind me; the importance of flossing daily. Thank you

Everyone on Dr. Affara's team is the best! Jenny is a great receptionist who uses all the social media tools to offer reminders of appointments which I find invaluable. From cleanings to exams to complicated procedures, all are virtually pain and stress free. Dr. Affara and the team really know how to let you relax and feel comfortable as they explain each segment of the procedure as it goes forward. You couldn't ask for a more professional and kind, easy going experience! Highest possible recommendation is well earned!

I've only been once for an emergency visit when my regular dentist was closed and this team was so friendly, so nice and so warm. Dr. Affara is sweet and kind. I am strongly considering changing dentists...
Sep 15, 2015
The staff is courteous, professional and very calming! Dr. Affara ensures pain free procedures.
Jul 24, 2015
Jenny is a great receptionist. Her idea to have appointment reminders sent via text was so creative and convenient! My dental hygienist (sorry, I forgot her name AGAIN...she's from Amesbury) is very knowledgeable and personable. She takes great care of my teeth and always puts the entire appointment at ease. Dr. Affara is a great dentist. I've been with him for many years because I trust he's doing the very best possible for the preservation of my dental health. Looking forward to many more years with him and his staff!
Jul 22, 2015
I have had the pleasure of having Dr.Affara and his team take care of all my dental needs for the last 10 years. Dr. Affara and his team are extremely polite and highly knowledgeable. They take the time explain what to expect with every procedure, making you feel comfortable about the work being done. They will never do any work that is not necessary. The hygenists are very thorough and do a great job at cleaning your teeth. I would highly recommend Dr. Affara and his staff for any dental procedure.

I've been seeing Dr. Affara for over 5 years now. Everyone at his office has always been friendly, accommodating, and a pleasure to deal with. The dental work itself is great and they always show a genuine desire to ensure you're comfortable during any procedures. Last but not least, I had some extensive work done at one point and the office provided a payment plan that was reasonable and affordable. I would highly recommend this office to anyone.
May 29, 2015
There isn't anything i could recommend to make Dr. Affara practice more comfortable or services than he offers already.He has been my dentists since he opened in Salem. His staff are always friendly and make sure your visit is the best experience. His safety and good health practices are of the highest standards and that is so important to all. He's the best dentists I've had and was recommend to me by my daughter who rates dentist for those exact reasons. Frank M. Peabody

you made the time to fix what needed to be fixed and made me feel comfortable during the entire procedure...thank you!!
May 19, 2015
Everyone I encountered yesterday was very professional. I sincerely appreciated the way I was greeted by Jenny. I apologize but cannot recall the names of the person who cleaned my teeth and the person who took the x-rays (I'm getting old!). Anyway, they were both excellent! Again, thank-you!
May 12, 2015
In all honesty Dr Affara and his team are superb. I have referred several people to smile designers because of Dr Affara.
