Dr. Barakat is far more than an amazing orthodontist; she is warm, professional, and personable. With each appointment, I always felt that I was her only and top priority. Dr. Barakat was so efficient and constantly reassured me throughout my entire treatment process. She had me looking forward to my Ortho visits! My wedding day is approaching soon and I can proudly smile with my beautiful straight teeth all thanks to Dr. Monika Barakat!



Dr. Barakat is AMAZING! Our son, Austin, has been in braces on and off since age 11, through both phases 1 & 2. The day he met Dr. Barakat (in the latter part of his journey) literally changed his experience of wearing braces. Her professional attitude and genuine kindness allowed him to feel comfortable and enjoy his visits. He loved her! You’ll understand if you have a teenage boy, because that doesn’t happen very often.

Austin plays high school and club basketball which is a very competitive sport, which is not a good combination while wearing braces. During a specific tournament game on the eve of Thanksgiving, Austin was hit in the mouth, subsequently knocking his tooth out of the socket. His braces were the only thing holding his tooth in place. He was unable fully to close his mouth and was in a lot of pain. We made the dreaded emergency phone call to Dr. Barakat, who so kindly dropped her holiday grocery shopping and met us at the Scottsdale office for immediate treatment. We were uncertain if he would eventually lose the tooth in the process, but she did an outstanding job of keeping him calm and literally saved the tooth. He wasn’t able to eat for a few days, but he later made a full recovery. Austin was so thankful of her generosity; he, on his own, took her flowers to show his appreciation. (Awww…) That was over a year ago, and to this day, his tooth remains healthy and intact. Austin had his braces removed last week (at age 17) and thanks to Dr. Barakat, Austin has a beautiful smile! She is truly a blessing and we highly recommend her to anyone in the search of a wonderful Orthodontist!


Dr. Barakat is awesome. When I first went to see her, I was so nervous. My teeth were turned, crooked and overlapping. I wasn’t sure what to expect.. What Dr. Barakat did to my smile is totally amazing. I am not going to lie, having braces is an adjustment but, within a short amount of time, I could see a big change in my teeth. Now a little over a year and a half of her working on my teeth and me sticking with what I needed to do, my smile looks amazing. Dr. Barakat is very dedicated to her patients and wanted me to be happy with my smile. I am so very happy and love the results! I feel so thankful that she is as dedicated and determined. I know my smile will be beautiful when all is done. She always said, I had a beautiful smile but she was going to make it better. She truly did. Thank you so much, Dr. Barakat. I love my smile even more now!
