I've been going to Dr. Tuft for 2 years now +/-. She is excellent. Explains everything, always asks if I'm doing ok, while she is working on my teeth. Her Staff is great! The receptionist is always so nice and apleasure to chat with. Cindy who works with Dr. Tuft is awesome. Everyone in the office is super great! I love that Dr. Tuft actually sits and "chats" for a minute, before she gets into "filling" a cavity or something of that nature! I highly recommend Dr. Tuft and her team. I'm going back to get my teeth whitened!!! Can't wait!

After relocating from LA, I had been to a few dentists before I found Dr. Tufts. She is a wonderful dentist; highly skilled and does a thorough job. Couldn't be happier with the services and fair pricing. Great location, nice views, and lovely staff. 5 Stars all around!

My visits with Dr. Tuft are always great! She's very kind and knowledgeable and her assistant, Cindy, is able to pass along a lot of useful information for post-appointment care. Both women, and Deb at the front desk, make my visits efficient and relatively painless!

I've been a patient of Dr Tuft since the early 80s. That itself should say a lot. I've had preventive care and treatments including crowns. All as painless as that sort of thing can be. She has a good sense ofhumor and a gentle touch. Recently, a bonded front tooth repair she done in the mid nineties finally failed after many miles of smiles. I understood that ten years was a pretty good life span for this kind of cosmetic repair and I got almost twenty. Dr. Tuft re-bonded the tooth and Leonardo DaVinci couldn't have matched the color any better. You can tell she keeps her office up to date with the latest dental technology and it is always spotless. Her staff makes good use of the web and telephone for making and keeping appointments. Her entire team is attentive and it's clear they like working together. Last but not least, the historic skyscraper at 450 Sutter is one of the most beautiful in San Francisco. The Art Deco lobby and marble lined elevators are a real treat. And the view from the dentist's chair 16 floors is quite soothing. Trust your teeth to Dr Tuft. .

I have been a patient of Dr Tuft's for many years and, as much as it is possible when the visit involves people poking around in one's mouth, I always enjoy the experience. Everyone is friendly, professional and dedicated to keepingyour teeth healthy and to making you comfortable while dental work is being performed. Dr Tuft is extremely knowledgeable and skilled, with an excellent eye towards esthetics. I can always trust her treatment advice.

The woman who did my cleaning, Angelica, was excellent. I really liked this experience at the dentist which is saying a lot since I hate the dentist.

Dr. Tuft was thorough in her cleaning, and answered questions that I raised. However, she did not provide information beyond what I had asked for. I was hoping that I'd learn more about general dental hygiene.

Excellent, but expensive. Twice as much for the same work as my dentist in LA and the other in NY.
