Dentistry reviews in Elkins Park

    Taub's partner, Chess, had just died of a terminal disease he had been battling for a while (unbeknownst to patients).  Yet the office was organized, and a replacement for Chess was already named.  Transition was handled very well!
    And the hygienists (there are several) are all good/enthusiastic.  My only complaint is that prices are high--but this negative is outweighed by other plusses.

    I initially used another dentist at that location for my first visit, but did not feel we were communicating well. I chose Dr.Isdaner, and the change was remarkable. He is not one to rush, will explain the procedure in detail, address any questions, and is always concerned with your comfort level while he is performing the procedure.The dental assistants were also very kind, thorough and experienced. I had a full exam, one tooth needed a root canal. I got that done, returned and Dr. Isdaner fitted the tooth with a gold crown. My lower jaw line was "scaled and planed" due to some gingivitis. After the crown was adjusted to fit properly, it was affixed and I made another appointment. The last visit consisted of renewing three degrading fillings, and a complete polishing. He accepted my insurance, which helped somewhat. The dental charges seem about the same no matter where you go. His prices were right in the middle of the ranges I was quoted by other practices. It was money well spent-- the crowns and root canals are expensive, there is no getting around that. Lower income persons are simply priced out of the market. I was fortunate to get such a competent, honest, caring dentist who did accept what small amount of dental insurance coverage I did have. Some practices do not accept any kind of insurance anymore. Overall, it was the best experience one could expect. He will be my dentist of choice from now on.

    I was able to get an appointment at a reasonable time. I have been going there for quite a long time. When he comes into the room, he walks into the room and speaks to me face to face. He establishes that personal contact. I like that he does not jump to conclusions and takes things gradually. He doesn't make things sound worse than what they are. The office is pleasant, clean and friendly. They also upgraded their fish tank too. They went out of their way to make it very welcoming to improve the environment. It is colorful and relaxing. They also have up to date magazines.

    I first saw Dr. Tuman about 4 months ago. I went to see him because a crown (done by another dentist) broke and I needed to get it fixed.The bridge was over 14 years old so its not surprising that it needed to be replaced.
    Because of insurance it took a bit of time to get the OK to get all of the work done. Dr. Tuman accommodated me so I could get the billing done prior to year end.
    It was a big job. First there were a number of impressions or molds that had to be done. Then my 14 year old bridge needed to be drilled and chipped off. (Thank God for nitrous oxide) The worst thing about the whole procedure was the sound of the drill since the novocain and gas took care of any discomfort. I was in the chair for over 4 hours.
    I now have a temporary bridge and crown and Dr. Michael Tuman did such a great job that it actually looks better than the permanent one that was removed.
    My mouth is a little sore however Dr. Tuman offered pain killers which I declined. (Rethinking that now that the freezing is coming out)
    Overall, I was really impressed with the facility, the friendliness of the staff, the professionalism of all and the consultation that I had with Dr. Tuman. He took my concerns and opinions on what I wanted my smile to look like and if the permanent bridge looks as good as the temporary one, I'll be very happy.

    We have used her for many years and she is a fine dentist. It is well as the trip to the dentist can go. She is concerned, gentle, and responsive to the needs of her patients. For as long as she has been in practice up here, I think it is over 15 years.

    This was an overly long, extremely frustrating and needlessly expensive experience.I could easily pinpoint which tooth was hurting. He told me I had a and quot;minor crackand quot; at the very top of the tooth, and we agreed it was worth trying to re-do the filling as a step to avoid having to crown the tooth.The new filling provided no relief, so visit #2 was necessary. The new filling provided no relief, so visit #3 was necessary. At office visit #3, after more x-rays, I told him the pain level was unchanged. So we began the long process of making a permanent crown for the tooth. Multiple office visits ensued, each time accompanied by x-rays., for things such as impressions for the crown, a temporary fitting of the crown, and finally the permanent installation. At the beginning of each office visit, I would explain the pain level in the tooth was unchanged. I was told and quot;to give it a while, the pain will subside over a few weeks.and quot; My cost so far had exceeded $450.00. After over a month with no change in the pain level of the crowned tooth, Dr. Ireland finally told me that the pain must be coming from the nerve itself, and that I would need a root canal. Please remember, each office visit with Dr. Ireland, except the last, included x-rays. I was referred to Dr. Zicchinolfi in November 2012, and upon first seeing me he had two x-rays taken. In about a minute after the x-rays were done, and quot;Dr Zand quot;, as his staff affectionately refers to him, told me I had a cracked tooth. He showed me the x-rays, and you could see a line bisecting the entire length of the tooth. This was evident even to a novice such as myself. (I wrote a separate review of Dr. Zicchinolfi). He expalined the tooth needed to be extracted. I returned to Dr. Ireland with the news, and was never even offered an apology. I had to pay another $450 for the tooth extraction, which on top of all the needless work that was done on the cracked tooth, raised my cost of treatment by Dr. Ireland close to $1,000, most of this expense due to his inexcusable lack of diagnosing the cracked tooth at the very beginning of this ordeal. Needless to say, Dr. Ireland is no longer my regular dentist. I would never, under any circumstances, refer anyone to Dr. Ireland.
    impressions, temporary fittings, the a permanent crown was installed.
    Every office visit I would explain the pain level was unchanged. Each
    time I was told, and quot;give it a while, the pain should slowly decrease.and quot;
    After the permanent crown was installed, the pain level was the same
    after 6 weeks. Aonther office visit, more x-rays, and I was told and quot;You
    must get a root canal.and quot; That is when I went to see Dr. Zinchifoli, who
    in the matter of minute after looking at an x-ray his office took, and quot;I''m
    very sorry, but I can not help you.and quot; He showed me the x-ray, and the
    crack running right down the entire length of the center of the tooth
    was evident.

    I think that Dr. Greg Mauro is a great dentist. I actually drive 30 miles to go see him. I would say nothing but positive things about them. They are very courteous and responsive. He is knowledgeable. The facility is clean. They are prompt. The staff is knowledgeable and helpful. I think they go out of their way to care for your teeth. I don't think that Dr. Mauro tries to sell services that are not necessary. If he doesn't know the answer to something specifically, he will be honest and look it up.

    I have gone to Dr. Schaeffer since her current office opened several years ago, having followed her from her previous location where several dentists were employed (all good experiences there). I have a fear of dentists, born out of the past, but know that when I am at Dr. Virpi's office, I am among friends who will apply that gentle, feminine  touch. I have a favorite hygenist who cleans my teeth, keeping my mind occupied with stories about her family while asking about mine. Dr. Virpi does the same. She has done a cap for me and filled a few cavities over the years. The words patient, gentle, accommodating, reassuring, and responsive come to mind. Sweden's loss is our gain!

    I have had several cleanings and some fillings there.  The cleanings are always fine.  At one filling appointment I did have issues with the contour afterward.  They tried a few times to fix it but I just gave up because it wasn't helping.  Other than that, they have been great.  The staff is always friendly and nice to work with.

    I have been going to the practice for at least 30 years now. Dr. Kim has recently come in and he hasn’t been there for 30 years, but the whole group is excellent. He is very kind and explains things to you. He will also make sure you are comfortable. I am not nervous about dentists. He might do some cosmetic work, but I am not sure. I have just gone to him for regular work. I didn’t have any problems with my last visit to him. I would use his services in the future too.
