Dr. Atapour was excellent! She was warm and friendly during my visit. She ensured to explain what she was doing along the way. The front desk receptionist was also warm and welcoming. The dental assistant was very helpful and attentive to both myself and the doctor. They didn’t try to sell me on treatments or modalities I didn’t need. I felt very well cared for. I have referred my whole family to them now.

Our family loves the service, the friendly atmosphere. Dr. Atapour is not only professional but she is very personable. The rest of the staff are very friendly, warm and accommodating. I would definitely recommend this dental office to everyone I know

Dr. Atapour’s excellent work, her always-current and experienced practice are a few reasons all members of our family trusts her and do not hesitate to travel from out of state to receive dental care. We know, from many years of experience that after regular dental care, or tooth restoration at Model Dental, you will want to smile!

When I first came to Dr. Atapour, six years ago, I was another afraid patient with sick teeth. Not only she gave me the best professional advice to get my teeth in the best health possible, but she did it with the human touch that only a friend can bring. Two implants, two crowns and so many other minor issues later I feel like not only my smile changed but my confidence about my oral health changed too. Dr. Atapour always makes me feel everything is possible. Even today when I arrived to her office with a cracked tooth after munching organic chips, she put the world aside to take care of me. That is why I give her Clinic 6 (SIX) stars, because this is the best dentist I have ever had.

I am writing this review to help encourage people who (rightly so) may be hesitant to get dental work done during COVID to get your work done here! I have interviewed 4 Dental offices in the Columbia Ellicott City area. This office by FAR is the most intimate space= One dentist, One assistant, One receptionist= least exposure! The office is pristine. The Dentist Dr. Atapour is very sweet, kind, meticulous and thorough. Her staff is sweet warm and inviting. They do not allow anyone inside until your appointment which keeps you safer as well. This Dentist has SUCH a sweet demeanor and the office environment feels so safe that I *happily paid CASH instead of going to a dentist who accepts my insurance! I wish you all the best during these trying times! Sincerely, Ms. Lee

Dr. Atapour and the entire staff are prompt and professional. I’m in the chair at my scheduled appointment time and Dr. Atapour tells me exactly what the plan of care of is. She is straight to the point, informing me of what’s best for my dental health.


This is the BEST place I have ever had dental care. Dr. Atapour is warm hearted, caring, patient, professional and goes above and beyond what is required. My family and I have been going here for almost 6 years and we LOVE her!

I really needed a location that was closer to my job. I found them on google with great reviews and located only 2 buildings up from my job. Had a tooth pulled and it was an easy process. Going back in 6 weeks to start my long term dental care. Love them and would recommend to anyone.

Dr. Atapour is my main dentist, she is a splendid and very intelligent individual. Every time i have gone to see her she has gotten to me very quickly and her prices are reasonable. Model Dental Clinic is a tremendous office to make your main dentist as well.

Our family has been going to Dr. Atapour for many years and have been very happy with her quality work. The office is very convenient with plenty of parking in Columbia.
