I was so impressed with my visit today! I've been a patient here for about 3 years now and really only needed regular cleanings and a few cavities filled, but I recently was experiencing pain in my gum. I figured it was a stuck popcorn kernel but when I went in to get it checked out I still felt nervous and apprehensive that the dentist wouldn't be able to help me or that it would end up being expensive. 20 minutes later I left smiling from ear to ear and telling everyone about how this was the best dentist visit I'd ever had. I loved how quick and efficient my dentist was and how she explained everything that she was doing. I had called that morning asking for the earliest appointment possible due to the pain, thinking they'd maybe fit me in if I was lucky in a few days, and had an appointment scheduled for three hours later. This will remain my dentist for as long as we live here and I am definitely sharing it will all of my friends!
I have always been afraid of going to the dentist, but, I must admit that after being assure of the things that needed to be done, and being in such a relaxed setting I felt all of my tensing leaving. I am glad that I made the decision to have the work done. Best one I made. Thanks
They seem to care about your dental care. When I have questions they either answer them or find the person who will.
The dental work is great. I like that they are now upgrading it looks like it will turn out to be great.
I was not able to go to a dentist in over 3 years, my husband and I saw Dr. Prat recently and he was able to ease us back into treatment. He has some high tech camera and digital x-rays that allows you to see what work we needed. His dental assistant did not speak much but had a gentle touch and a pleasant smile. Overall an excellent professional experience. Considering that he is undergoing some remodeling, Dr Prat and his staff where worth while to go to.
I've been going here for the past two years, and for someone who has dental anxiety, they've been really good to me. They take their time, explain everything, and plus I get to watch movies. I really like the staff too. They always have a smile on their faces. Looking forward to my six month check up. : )
Had an emergency and immediately they were able to squeeze me in. The receptionist was awesome and helped expedite things by pre-verifying my insurance before my appointment. She was able to tell me my co-payment accurately so that was there was no surprises when i left the office. I love that they were chart-less and the x-rays are digital. they definitely need to remodel the place, but I believe that is in the works. Other than that, the staff had great hospitality and solved my problem painlessly.
I have always found Dr. Prat and his associates professional, friendly and caring. The staff has always fitted me in when I had an emergency and very helpful about unexpected changes in my scheduled appointments.
The new treatment suites are state of the art, calming and very nicely appointed for patient comfort. Dr. Prat choose an open suite floor plan rather than closed rooms which I like as it's very airy and light. All you need do is ask for a private consultation and you will be accommodated.
I never found the treatment rooms to be anything but acceptably clean. Yes, the offices were becoming very worn and tired, but for a reason. Piedmont Ave is a protected historic district and it has taken many years for Dr. Prat to receive approval to renovate from the committee. As a business person I can understand why Dr. Prat would make do as long as possible. It's disingenuous to complain about prices and expect him to spend money on carpets that are to be removed. Had you bothered to ask he would have cheerfully explained his plans to upgrade and expand. Even so, The Dental Touch has been digital for a number of years and was not lacking in state of the art equipment or treatment options. It is completely up-to-date esthetically now as well.
