This dentist was ok during my first year or so of coming to him. Office is clean, organized. The wait time is almost zero. They see you right away which is great but ....Then one day ( I believe my thirdyear of coming) when I showed up for my treatment another dentist walked in and told me that he would be my dentist from now on. Dr. Katayev himself would no longer be working with my insurance. No letters, no email, no calls. Nothing to notify me of such a change. Then when he realized I wasn't too happy he said ''he could'' accommodate me and see me ( as if he was doing me such a favor). But this is not even the worse! Dr. Katayev's behavior seemed really odd last year (2016). You could scroll down on this page and see some other reviews about his bedside manners. He was very rude and had ZERO patience. One day as I sat on the chair to do 1 crown he did a SECOND crown without even asking me if I wanted to do that second crown that day ( opposite sides of the mouth!). He was rushing , acting aggressive and throwing his tools on the counter as if he was mad about something. The water was dripping from my mouth all the way down my neck into my shirt and no one would wipe it. When he finished, he left the room without saying a word to me until I noticed the temp crown was EXTREMELY high and had to be fixed otherwise I wouldn't be able to talk or eat. He then returned to the room to fix it but with an attitude as if I was wasting his time ( if he had done a proper job he wouldn't have to come back and fix it!) He was obviously having a bad day and taking it on me, his patient. The crowns were absolutely terrible and I had to take painkiller for months! I totally regret doing crowns with him ( 5 crowns!!). The way he applied anesthesia on my gums was BARBARIC to make it light.The gum area was sore for weeks afterwards . Also, he and his staff speak Russian (or whatever language they speak) the entire time ( not professional at all!). I could write soooo many things here. Last year, I saw 2 ladies very upset about him in the waiting room ( one actually wrote a review here. Her review is 100% accurate because I was actually there when she had her experience). This doctor only cares about money. He does not care about your teeth at all. The staff is terrified of him. Everyone can see that. I decided to stop going to him after last year's horrible experience ( I am making it brief here as I could write a book about it!!!). I would not recommend him at all. At first he may try to be nice to you. But after a few appointments or years you will see it for yourself. There are so many dentists in the city!!! Don't settle for someone like this!

Problems with communication, and as a result he gets a bit annoyed if you don't understand what he wants you to do. However, he tries to contain himself, but it comes out anyway. For someone who is sensitive about provider's tonesduring a time when you are very nervous and feels a bit helpless. Additionally, my gums were in pain this morning from my new dentures, not sure if it will be as comfortable as my old ones, and if he will have the patience to work with me through this.

I am usually nervous about going to the dentist, but after my first appointment with Dr. Katayev I feel so much better about coming here! When I first arrived I noticed the front desk staff was extremely warm, friendly and accommodating.Almost as soon as I came in and had finished the paperwork, they were ready to take me in and I was thrilled. I went in for an Invisalign consultation; the doctor explained to me in great detail what needed to be done and how to proceed. My insurance parameters were taken into consideration, and my finance concerns were addressed, which I very much appreciated. The front desk staff went over a payment plan with me and said that they would work with me in financing the treatment, which was so relieving to hear. I really appreciated the fact that they took the time to listen to and answer all my questions. I will be returning here to proceed with the treatment and am now at great ease about going to the dentist. I highly recommend this office!

On my first initial visit his chair side manner was not up to par; on this particular instance, while sitting in the exam chair and my mouth propped wide open and dental instruments in my mouth for initial exam, he keptreferring to me by calling me another patient's name, so I corrected him and of course he apologized and that is when he realized and said he was looking at the wrong dental chart which was mounted electronically on display in his sleek upscale dental office. On my last visit, there were some mention of a payment that required attention and the way the matter was handled and addressed was inappropriate and unprofessional. I never received an official billing statement for services rendered nor was there a courtesy phone concerning recent charges that occurred within the past 7 day of my last visit and how the overage of that service unfortunately was not going to be covered by my insurance and how payment arrangements needed to take place prior to arriving to my next follow up visit. On the day of my next visit, I was caught like a deer in headlights when I was strong armed to make a payment right then and there on the spot before entering the patients exam room to complete my follow up exam for denture adjustment. I was appalled. The outcome of this situation, billing invoice paid in full, follow up exam completed, a release form signed by me, electronic dental exams obtained and future appointments canceled.

I am surprised why doctor Kataev has such good reviews, from my experience he is very unprofessional. It seems like the facility mostly cares about how to charge your Insurance for procedures which you didn't ask for. I went to seedoctor Kataev in order to do filling for one of my teeth. He also recommended some procedures. Only recommended, it is not like I have to do it immediately, I didn’t have any pain in that moment. I agreed to fix my 15th teeth, and I was not sure if I will do everything what he recommended. I made my second appointment at 9 am ( before work) in order to fix 15th teeth. Doctor Kataev actually wanted to do a root canal and put crown after, but he said the filling might work as well. I asked him to try filling first. He was doing something for 30 mins. After he was done fixing 15th teeth, he removed my 16th (wisdom) teeth even without asking me - if I want to remove it in general, or if I want to remove in the morning BEFORE WORK. Once he was done, he didn’t even tell me, what he did with 15th teeth, if he did crown or filling, he just left fast. Once they asked me to pay for procedures, I only there realized what he did with 15th teeth. I was really upset and mad, that he removed my 16th teeth without even asking me, since I had important stuff to do at work in that day, and I couldn’t do anything. I need to take 3 days off after that, because my face was really swelling, and pain went directly to my ear. I personally have plenty of issues with my stomach now, meaning it is not good for me to take any painkillers or antibiotics, and I mentioned it in papers which they gave me to filled up. It seems like they don't even review it! Because I need to take antibiotics now for the teeth and I really don’t want to do it. I feel like it is really unprofessional removing the teeth on the morning without my permission!

I expressed my concerns to Dr. Katayev about having a tooth extracted to fit a partial bridge. He met with me twice AND called me to answer further questions (I'm a delight in the dentist chair) and on the day onthe procedure, he worked a bit and told me he could fit the bridge without doing the extraction. I was beyond thrilled. I was in and out in the exact time scheduled, didn't have to wait too long, and the who experience was extremely positive.

my experience with the doc is 2 years ago to remove my wisdom teeth. after he found out my dental plan, he split the procedure into a few parts to potentially charge more. at bedside, he was rude and hard totalk to. After he removed my tooth, I requested to see it, he was impatient and just gave me a glimpse before taking it away. The experience was impersonal.

This review is long overdue, I have been a patient of Dr. Michael Katayev since 2013 and I am satisfied with his dental work. Before Dr. Katayev I experienced my share of "chop shop" dental clinics, who ruined my smile anddid mediocre dental work. Since coming to Dr. Katayev's clinic my dental problems have been reduced.Dr. Katayev and his team make my visits to the dentist office less dreadful! He has done teeth cleaning, and minor dental surgery for me. I like the fact that he does the initial teeth cleaning and not a hygienist.
