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.

The premises were very clean and comfortable, and I had a very short wait time. Dr. Taranov moved quickly and was always concerned that I was not in pain, and worked hard to make sure my visit was a success.

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 job with my cleaning, as well, and was friendly and comforting.

He is nice but his staff is not very professional. They make you feel like you are an annoyance when you walk in. He on the other hand does seem to know his craft. Maybe he can hire friendlier people.

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 and he 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.

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 and I 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!

I really like the practice and have recommended it to my co-workers. my only dislike is that you only meet DR Steven the first appointment or if you have a severe case. I am normally seen younger dentists on their staff.

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 also didn't find the work done to be of that great of quality. Left my teeth feeling a little off.

The dentist was great, however, I did have to wait long and the office was pretty quite. However, it is convenient to my office and for a yearly check up exactly what I need.

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 dentists did 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 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 recommend this 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

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 of my 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.

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 were equally 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 me the problem areas and I'll be returning for more work. He seemed knowledgeable and friendly while at the same time being precise and thorough.

The staff and doctor were friendly and knowledgeable. The experience would be improved by 2 stars if they invested in improving the waiting room experience (design a logo, better signage, better seating, remove the photocopied framed warnings, better art work.

The appearance of the office was not what I expected, it was very nice and clean and spacious. The staff were very friendly and honest. The made me feel like I was in good hands and I was. Once I saw the dentist I was no longer nerves. He made me feel comfortable. He was to the point and honest, that's what I like!!!!! The best part, they take kids so I will be making an appointment for my boys!!! They have a patent for life now!!!

Few places accept my insurance and I've had some exceptionally disappointing experiences in the past. This place was clean, well-maintained, and most importantly, the employees were patient and friendly and happily worked with my insurance company to resolve a billing issue for which they were not responsible. It was a very pleasant experience and I would absolutely recommend them.
