I recommend Dr. Tau and staff for all your dental care. I had been reluctant to go back to the dentist after a bad experience elsewhere but Dr. Tau and all his staff made my dental treatment comfortable, pain free and successful.

Thanks and I'll be returning.

You were ready for me at the time of my appointment, which I really appreciate. Your facility is very clean, well-lit and modern. My hygienist was skilled, gentle and friendly. And you gave me a reasonable action plan for beginning the replacement of my many over-the-hill fillings. Thanks! more »

Great atmosphere, it really makes a difference that they go the extra mile to make what is sometimes an unpleasant experience as comfortable as possible. I think a lot of businesses do this and more medical/dental offices should follow the model. I liked Dr. Tau, I thought he was very personable but also very honest and upfront about what you need and what you don't need. Most importantly, they explain to you what you will be charged and what your options are before doing any work or charging you for it, they make sure you know exactly what you are getting yourself into before moving forward. I'm a new patient, so as always time will tell, but if first impressions mean anything, I walked away impressed. more »

My experience yesterday was wonderful. Everyone in the office is very friendly and completely professional. Only had a bonding yesterday which was a pleasure considering I can get pretty scared while in a dental chair. The real test will be when I go back next week for real dental work. I will let you know. more »

Extreme disappointment!!! In March of 2012 I spent over $3,000 for a bridge, which I was told by Dr. Tau was of the best quality. Approximately 18 mos. after the bridge was installed, the fascia broke away, leaving the original tooth showing. When I informed Dr. Tau of this issue, I was told that his office would only cover 1/3 (a third) of the repair and that I would be responsible for the difference. I chose not to have the repair done at that time. Now, just a few short months afterwards, the entire bridge is about to become dislodged. I was referred to this office by a friend, but after my first visit, it was clear to me that making money was more of a top priority than providing excellence in dental care. However, he thinks nothing of pushing patients to give his office a 5 star survey. Like I said, very disappointing!!! more »

I have never been to a better dentist. All the employees were welcoming and charming. The office was incredibly accommodating from pain levels to tv channels. I appreciate the professional and personable nature you find at Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence. more »

A more complete review will come after my Invisalign treatment is finished, but I'm in shock that angry customers would choose to ignore Dr. Tau's dental recommendations and then vent about it on Yelp. The man is incredibly straight forward with pricing and he's doing you a favor if he suggests a more expensive solution to a real problem when he feels like it's the best one for you.

He flat out told me that I didn't have a need for expensive reconstructive surgery on my jaw to get straight teeth as long as I used a comparatively cheap Invisalign treatment. If these negative reviews were consistent or viable, wouldn't he go out of his way to tell someone sensitive about his/her teeth that he/she needs extras to make more money?

Pay no heed to these negative nellies. You will have an amazing experience with Dr. Tau and your teeth will be in amazing hands."

The staff at Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence was above and beyond friendly! They made me feel very comfortable walking into the office. I was coming from South Jersey and was running a little late however, I was greeted with a smile by Dr. Leonard Tau himself and then filled out my paperwork. I was just going in for a teeth whitening procedure and one of the staff members, Melissa, made me feel at ease and she was so friendly and outgoing! She checked to make sure that I was ok and if I needed anything else while I was sitting at the dentist chair. Also, the atmosphere in the office was very welcoming and warm. Before I left the office, Dr. Tau made my visit top priority. He was very reassuring and had an awesome bedside manner! They really care about my teeth! I would definitely highly recommend if you're in the market for a dentist, don't look any further he is right in your neighborhood! more »

I came to Dr. Tau for invisalign Feb of 2012, and became his lifelong patient. After the Invisalign, I received the Kors whitening treatment. Well to say the least, I have a new smile. His staff are the nicest and most patient ladies I have ever dealt with. Dr. Tau is very efficient and organized. He knows what you need and is always willing to work with you.

If you want a new smile, give him a try or if you have a problem, he will fit you in, always.

After a not so satisfying experience with my previous dental office, I read many five star reviews on Doctor Taus office online. I decided to give it a try and I was NOT disappointed. Dr. Tau along with his staff are very personable. As soon as you walk into the office, your welcomed into what seems like family and not just another appointment. Dr. Tau has already explained my needs, why they happened, and preventative care I can use at home. I've received advice financially on options available to me and there is no pressure. I'm excited to continue my relationship with the office in my future appointments. more »

I have had a dentist phobia for years and neglected my teeth for years because of this. I suffer from panic attacks and really could never bring myself to go to the dentist. Not to mention years ago my last experience at a dental visit was not good at all. Needless to say--i knew i needed to go my teeth were not looking nice at all and i had pain on both sides of my mouth for a long time. I found Dr. Tau's office by googling "dentist for cowards in Phila" and i found Dr. Tau's info. I emailed Dr. Tau and he immediately got back to me. I went to his office, had xrays and was told i needed some work done due to all the neglect. I went on Monday and Tuesday of this week and got the work done and i must say I did not feel anything!! i was completely comfortable and not stressed at all! Dr. Tau and his staff are excellent! They made this experience awesome for me!! I never thought in my life i would give a dentist a good review. Well--i'm giving a great review because i now know i can go to Dr. Tau's office and be comfortable, and i know there is no pain involved at all. I overcame a huge phobia and now i will always stay a patient of Dr. Tau's and never ever neglect my teeth again. Thank you so much Dr. Tau, Rose, Michelle,Alex!! You treated me so good and did wonderful work and the best part it was painless!!!! I can't thank you enough! more »

The dental hygienist did a good job of cleaning my teeth and answering all of my questions. Really satisfied with the outcome of the cleaning. The exam room was equipped with television which I thought was nice as well. Overall, a great experience. more »

One of the best experiences I have ever had at a dentist. Caring, kind and considerate would be words that come to mind when talking about Dr. Tau. I needed a new denture but was lacking some of the necessary funds and he allowed me to pay for treatment over a short period of time. He listened to my concerns and issues that I had and he waved his magic wand and now I have the smile I have always dreamed of. Recommend him highly. Thanks more »

Dr Tau smoothed out a sharp edge on a canine which was injured 29 years ago when a car hit me while I was on a bike ride. A few weeks ago the tooth edge became sharp. Now it is nice and smooth making my tongue & me quite happy. more »

I had my first visit today at the center for a check-up and x-rays. Everyone that worked there was very welcoming and professional. The hygienist, Rosemary, was very pleasant and did a very thorough job cleaning my teeth. I unfortunately had one small cavity but Dr. Tau took care of it that very day and it was absolutely painless. I definitely plan on returning and recommend others to try this place out for their dental health needs. more »
