If an interrogation style bedside manner is what you’re looking for, you’ll love Dr. Taranov. Just my opinion, but I found him to be quite rude and arrogant. I don’t think I’ll be going back. Jack the dental hygienist was great,however. He was gentle yet thorough and very pleasant. The office manager either did not understand my insurance or had other motives. She explained that my insurance only covers cleaning and X-rays. That’s not true. Just be aware and talk with your insurance company before going. If you dare.

The dentists who work here are very impatient. They like to get things done quickly and get frustrated when you start to ask questions about procedures they are doing on you. It was so bad with one dentist, I requested anew one for future appointments (who wasn't much better). On top of that they're work isn't very good. I had a crown put in at this office that kept popping out. One dentist ended up putting it back in and shaved it down so much that it had to be re-done altogether! It was redone by Dr. Taranov who I hoped would be the best dentist there, but that crown also ended up coming out just weeks after being put in. The dentists here are the worst I have ever experienced both in bedside manner and dental work.

I am happy to find a doctor I can rely on. I am confident in his judgement and professionalism. He tries to make the process as less painful as possible. I got a new bridge today and am very satisfied withDr. Taranov’s work. I would like to compliment the office: bright, clean, well organized. Every time I visited this office, I did not have to wait at all. I also like the fact that the office participates in ZocDoc. It is convenient. I give Dr. Taranov and his office the highest mark.

many weeks went by after my initial appointment which was highlighted by creating space for a bridge in my mouth but weeks followed before I received it which was not necessarily the doctor's fault. Now I have a bridge but aremaining tooth underneath the bridge he hollowed out is decaying ever so slowly with difficulty chewing without a low level of pain occurring so I will soon need a follow up visit to the same dentist

I was highly satisfied with my visit to Dr. Taranov. First, he saw me right away, according to the scheduled time. Second, and most importantly, the procedure that promised to be very painful, was done as gentle as possible. I am happy to find a dentist I can rely on.

Dr Taranov was quick and to the point. He outlined a plan of action for some high priority work I need done and his staff was excellent in mentioning some potential issues with my insurance. The hygienist did an excellent jobwith my cleaning, as well, and was friendly and comforting.

Dr. Taranov was extremely patient with me as I was extremely nervous with the procedure being done. I tried to warn him how horrible I was dealing with pain and drilling and once we got started my anxiety kicked in andhe was so kind to wait and talk me down from being so nervous. He explained to me that he wouldn't let me be in pain and that really was what I needed to hear! Very appreciative.

Honest, personable, knowledgable...He got a thorough history of my teeth/oral health. Addressed all of my questions & concerns regarding my teeth. Easily could've said I needed work done regarding one issue I brought up (as other dentistsdid prior to him). Instead he told me it was something that was fine to wait on & see what, if anything, arose with it. He discouraged me from spending a couple thousand dollars on something he thought was largely unnecessary at the time. It's now over one year later, and that tooth is in excellent condition. He was right about everything he said!! This was after at least two dentists had pushed me to spend a few thousand dollars to correct this "issue" they said would have me in severe pain & damage to my teeth & jaw. What those dentists said rubbed me the wrong way so I sought another opinion from Dr. Taranov. I felt like he was more honest & knowledgeable about the issue right off the bat. I'm immensely grateful I found him!

I had a cleaning and three cavities filled here. The lady who did my cleaning was a nightmare who bullied me and called me a baby while I was spitting buckets of blood and I actually think she chipped one ofmy teeth with her brutality, but unfortunately I do not remember her name. She was blond. The dentist was fine- I hardly spoke to him, he sat in the room by the chair and spoke to the hygienist as if I was not there. No complaints about the actual work done with the fillings.

Before even seeing this feedback request, I was telling my friends that the bedside manner in Dr. Taranov's office was spectacular. The people were friendly and the service was fast, efficient and thorough. I went in the middle my workday andI was back at the office in no time. I drink a lot of tea so staining is a problem for me. I can honestly say it was the absolute gentlest cleaning I have ever had and she did a phenomenal job in a really short time! I have already begun recommending them! Thanks!

Dr. Taranov was fine. The other dentist who did a filling for me is the one that I found an issue with. He was a bit rushed and far too nonchalant with just getting through everything and not caring. I alsodidn't find the work done to be of that great of quality. Left my teeth feeling a little off.

I thought Dr. Taranov was great, as well as the hygienist and her assistant. Except for the extended wait time (appointment was called for 4:00, and I waited until around 4:45), the entire experience was great and I would definitely recommendthis practice for anyone looking for a friendly yet professional atmosphere. Especially loved the music that was played.

Very well-run office and professional staff. They seemed a bit rushed, and I had to wait (briefly) at several points both before and during the appointment (for the x-ray technician, for the hygienist, for the doctor). I will definitely be back for my future dental needs

First time at a dentist, thought everything was great but they make you wait a lot in between everything. My regular cleaning and visit by Dr. Taranov took a little under 2 hours. Besides the waiting, I would recommend.

Dr. Taranov has the worst bedside manner of any medical professional I've ever been to! He made fun of me when I couldn't remember what kind of electric toothbrush I had and was all-around incredibly sarcastic and rude. The hygienists wereequally rude. I have very sensitive teeth and the hygienist was very rough with my mouth. She basically just told me to stop moving and deal with it when I would twitch in discomfort as she tried to clean various sensitive teeth and she was very rough with my mouth. Dr. Taranov seemed knowledgeable enough but I would NEVER EVER go back.

It was a first visit so I will reserve permanent judgement, but it had been a while since I've been to the dentist and it my teeth showed it. Dr. Taranov used a neat camera and the x-rays to show methe problem areas and I'll be returning for more work. He seemed knowledgeable and friendly while at the same time being precise and thorough.
