Personally, I drive TWO HOURS from Palm Springs to Whittier to see this dentist. After much research, the prices are right and more importantly the customer service is excellent. I literally saved MORE money driving two hours (including gas)and his services then I would have if I used a local dentist in Palm Springs.

When I first arrived, the lobby was almost filled. I thought this was a good sign. The front desk team was so sweet and polite and explained the reason for the wait being that on Tuesdays they have a specialist thereand stack the schedule. Once I got back to see the doctors I had 3 in the room. They were all so attentive and took so much time to talk to me about my treatment case. They really were candid and open about anything I wanted to know. They quickly followed up with amazing pricing and even offered a discount if I paid it all in full. They saved me over $7,000 from previous quotes at other dentists. I am so happy and so excited to have this work completed under their care and plan on referring them to anyone needing serious dental work.

It was very tedious I had to fill out paperwork again despite the fact I already filled out on Zocdoc. The receptionist says she was not seeing my online form. Then when I was done filling out she was able tolocate it. It was very frustrating to see I told her that it was already filled out.

Wait times have exceeded one hour the last two times I have been seen. This last visit I waited one hour and 40 minutes for a 5 minute visit to remove sutures from my gum. Besides that, it was very professional.

I made the decision to select a new dentist office and choose Dr. Tamir's office after much research. In addition, I liked how the office felt when I walked in and the staff was warm and accommodating. Yesterday (12/14/17) was myfirst appointment with the Hygienist and I was a bit nervous about the quality of her work. She assured me of her 20 years of qualifications putting me at ease. WOW - to my surprise I received the best cleaning of my entire life (71 yrs. old). She was very gentle and caring asking me how I was doing which took away any anxiety. Mandy is the best Hygienist anywhere!!!!!!!!!! Glenn B

It was my first time here, but I have decided to make it my home dentist. I loved the staff, I loved the cleanliness, and I loved the atmosphere. Great customer service, and excellent care. They truly care, and want thebest for you. I felt that the moment I had the first conversation with the secretary. Thank you for a smooth operation, and for helping me all the way through.

Dr.tamir has to be one of the best doctors I've ever been to. He was so patient, a good listener , very knowledgeable and uses the state-of-the-art equipment. His bedside manners were excellent and didn't rush me. He answered every questionwith extreme respect and patience. You can tell he loves his work and enjoys working with people. I highly recommend him and his team. Just walking in his office observing the staff one can tell that it is an excellent working environment and everyone is happy and shows respect for one another. I feel confident with any treatment that I will receive their.

You couldn't pay me to step foot in that office again. I scheduled a cleaning and didn't receive one. I went into the office and filled out the new patient paperwork; I waited about 20 minutes before being seen. I thanwent and had x-rays done on my teeth, followed by pictures of my teeth. I than waited another 20 minutes for the dentist to come in and look at my teeth for about 30 seconds. I was than told I had to come back later to have my teeth cleaned. (The purpose of my visit) Total visit time: 90 minutes and still no teeth cleaning.
