I went to Dr. Tau and had a deep cleaning and scaling procedure done, and there was a major issue where I was told one out of pocket price before, and another much higher out of pocket price after the first half of the procedure was completed. I was extremely upset, but they did fix the problem and take responsibility quickly. I was charged the original quoted price for the first half of the procedure, and because of the mistake they did the second half for free. Hopefully they learn from this issue and don't do this to any customers in the future. While I probably will not be returning I do appreciate their efforts to fix the problem. Also, I will say that the dental technician Rose who worked on my teeth and performed the actual procedure was fantastic. She's extremely nice, and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Despite all of the issues my teeth look great thanks to Rose. more »

What a scam they are running at this place. They are money hungry con artists. I was told I needed a deep cleaning scaling procedure. Dr. Tau told me that with my insurance I would have to pay about $560 out of pocket for the entire procedure. I went today to have the first half done. After the procedure I was told that the out of pocket cost for one half of my mouth was over $700, but that they had given me discounts so all I had to pay for the one side was $560, double the price I was quoted a week ago. I was then told that they had had a very hard time getting in contact with MetLife, but conveniently they were finally able to get in touch with them while I was there having the procedure done. They said it was at that point that they discovered that my insurance wouldn't cover as much as they thought. They should have had all of that figured out prior to doing anything, and I was under the impression that they did. I was never told they were having any trouble with the insurance. My husband and I have both had other more extensive procedures done with the same insurance and we've never had to pay anything close to that out of pocket. I've never even had to pay a copay at other dentists. When I complained and said that I wasn't paying that much the receptionist just started pulling random numbers out of the air asking me if I could pay $500 and then "how about $300?" I was supposed to go back tomorrow to have the other half done, but there's no way I'm going back there. When I said I wasn't coming back the receptionist responded "I figured that, I already took you out of the system." Now I have one half of my mouth done, and don't know what to do about the other half. What a joke this place is. Stay away unless you enjoy throwing money away. more »

My friend was getting deep cleaning done at this office. She was told up front that she would owe $560 out of pocket. She understood that would be her cost and proceeded with the procedure. After they finished the one side of her mouth they told her that the other side would be an additional $560 out of pocket. She was never explained that up front and now her total cost jumped to over $1,100. When she asked for an explanation, they told her that her insurance did not pay as much as they thought. Again, she was not explained this up front and now stuck with this bill. When she asked to speak to the Doctor Tau he was not at all understanding and was actually very rude. He said it was not his fault and blamed it on the insurance company. And he actually said this, "You know, most people aren't as concerned about money or the prices of things like you are". Umm who are those people? So if you aren't concerned about your hard earned money this place might be for you. For everyone else, stay away. more »

Everyone always compliment me on my smile now of days thanks to DR.Tau and his awesome staff because before visiting them I never ever smiled showing all my teeth. I had my Invisalign done here and people stop me everyday to tell me my smile is great more »

Awesome first time experience. Dr. Tau was very thorough, and talked on my level to explain the work that needed to be done. Having had negative experiences in the past has kept me from getting work done, but I'm completely confident that my experience with Dr. Tau will exceed my expectations. Thanks! more »

I needed some dental work done recently and found Dr Tau through a google search. I was greeted warmly and given a very detailed form to fill out. We did an X-ray and he showed me a few problems I had. We quickly scheduled my next appointment for a filling. I felt very comfortable and at home at this office - that is saying much because no one likes the dentist. I was not offered the paraffin wax, blankets etc that were mentioned in the intake form. I'm not sure why because I didn't ask either also, the prices were a little steep. I am looking for a new, permanent dentist close to home.Dr Tau seems like a good fit but I will wait to make that decision after a few more visits. more »

Dr. Tau and his team gave me the best service. They are extremely knowledgable and will do anything to find the solution you are seeking.
If you think you can't afford good dental care, mak
e an appointment with him. He is one of CareCredit's partners and offers payment plans to his customers.
Couldn't say enough about Dr. Tau. Book an appointment with him, today!
FWIW this is not an endorsed review; just a happy customer paying the favor with a referral. :)

Dr. Tau and his staff are excellent. I have been coming since December of 2011 and I am completely satisfied with the treatment I have received. I love my invisalign progress so far. Mine was not an easy case but they have worked hard to insure that I am satisfied. The teeth cleanings are thorough and painless. I would not go anywhere else. more »

I could not be more satisfied with Dr. Tau and his team. They are focussed on quickly finding their patients solutions. This is my 1st week wearing Invisalign and I couldn't be happier with them. I've read a lot of reviews online regarding Invisalign about the importance of finding a quality dentist/orthodontist for your treatment. I highly recommend Dr. Tau if you're in the Philly area. If you aren't local, he is well-connected and could find you the best dentist to do your treatment.
Nothing's better than having trusted care.

Thanks Dr. Tau!

Dr.Tau is a great business man. He has revolutionized the detistry practice by innovating software to ensure consumer satisfaction. But what really keeps me content with his practice is his staff. His staff is great, very friendly and informative. My favorite is Michelle. She always welcomes me with a smile and an upbeat personality. Makes me feel welcomed. After a couple of years with my invisiline treatment, i feel confident with my smile. Thank you Dr. Tau and staff for a good experience. more »

Finally a personable and friendly staff! Very welcoming upon entering. Dr Tau took the time to spend with me and go over my treatment plan and explain the procees, and thoroughly discussed payment options-letting me make the decision on my treatment instead of pushing me into any option. The staff was warm and welcoming/friendly as well. So happy I found this office and a positive dental experience! more »

I came to the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence with a groupon for Zoom whitening. I have had the procedure done before so I knew what to expect. The doctor came in to give me the OK and was pretty rude and seemed rushed. Immediately after, I was pressured into buying custom trays with a bleach kit, so as to suggest if I didn't spend additional money, I may not be happy with my results. The technician was friendly, but she didn't come to check on me at all besides after the beeping from the machine indicated that each 15 minute session was complete, and several times the actual machine was applied to my mouth improperly and slipped out of place, likely causing me to not have optimal results. Unfortunately, no one was around to assist me with this issue, although there didn't seem to be any other patients in the office. I basically have nothing positive to say other than the groupon was a gift so it cost me nothing and my teeth seem to be a little bit whiter. I will not be back - I'm sure it's not tough to find a dental office in the Philadelphia area better than this one. more »
