This is the second time in about four years that I've visited with Dr. Tatra, and my first experience with him was very encouraging. I was having some serious tooth aches and he gave good guidance as to how to approach the problem seeing that I did not have a dental plan. His suggestions were very helpful and not pushy. I ended up going for an extraction on one of the teeth. I have a very fast metabolism and my last visit with a dentist in the Oakbay district was extremely painful and because of that situation, he took this into account before the procedure and made certain that I as kept comfortable during and after the procedure. That evening he even called me to make sure I was ok. A very kind man. This past week I went to visit Dr. Tatra's office again, and they continue to maintain a level of professionalism and friendly atmosphere in their office. I don't often give reviews but I have not had very good experiences at dentist offices in the past, but the atmosphere in Dr. Tatra's is one that he very much cares for his patients well being. He has state of the art equipment and is able to get a very clear picture of the condition of one's teeth with his, I believe it is called an infrared machine.. or something like that. With this machine he was able to give me a complete over view of the condition of my ivories and what needed to take to be done in order to get things to where they should be. Dr. Tatra makes every effort to be punctual with all his appointments. But understand, sometimes there are unforeseen things that happen, emergencies which he attends to. But also know that he will do his very best to accommodate you and you could be that person that needed attending to. Anyways, I just wanted to assure anyone that who is considering a visit to Dr. Tatra's office, that in my opinion, you can't go wrong with having him as a dentist. He and his staff will take good care of you.

Very accessible! I called him due to a concern while he was on vacation as I really wanted to touch base with him regarding a tooth we were watching that we suspected may need a root canal, and he actually called me back within 30 minutes of leaving him a voice mail. I figured I was out of luck as his phone went straight to voice mail, but he did call back. After talking for 10 minutes he re-assured me all would be fine and we will do a follow-up in a few days upon his return and called in a prescription while he was in Mexico for me just in case. He even thanked me for calling even though I had inconvenienced him on his family vacation. Very accessible and caring for those who are fortunate to have him as a dentist! very Highly recommended,

I am very pleased with my experiences with Dr. Tatra, as well as his staff. The office is flawlessly clean, welcoming and high tech. I came to Dr. Tatra for a second opinion and was treated with utmost respect and professionalism. He was able to address my concern, without delay, and explained exactly what the problem was, and how he was going to fix it. He is very careful, and makes sure that you're comfortable during the procedure. Best of all, if something is going hurt, even slightly, he is completely transparent about it, and will let you know. The receptionist, Aileen, took the time to explain my insurance coverage, and helped me make the most out of the benefits I receive through my employer. It makes me very happy to have finally found a dentist that doesn't give me an anxiety attack to visit. Straight up

The negative comments below are clearly unjustified and epic misreporting. This person must have spoken to Dr. Tatra and discussed his/her concerns in a civilized way. Full disclosure: I have had put few outstanding remarks previously. Sometime back, there came a situation which was a total misunderstanding probably happened unintentionally. After few weeks, I realized the fact and went back to Dr. Tatra and respectfully discussed the facts as I knew. It was very tough situation but Dr. Tatra stood with the facts and corrected everything. Not only that but he also himself told me what further things were which I would have never ever known and on TOP of everything, he went ahead and told me to waive all the fees. Where can you find such a dentist, please DO TELL ME????? Very had to find, to say the least. I can say with Authority that no dentist could have the professional courage and integrity to do as Dr. Tatra did. This a real time scenario and since then Dr. Tatra's respect has been double folded in my heart. This Dr. works so hard and is so thorough professional that putting bad remarks that have no grounds reflect the unjust and unfair mindset of the person or some ulterior motives, nothing else. My very complex situation is the proof of Dr. Tatra's upright professionalism. This person would have a right to express his/her bad feelings/review if he/she had met and discussed their concerns/issues with Dr. Tatra and if Dr. Tatra had disappointed them then they would probably be right to express their factual experience but slandering unilaterally using abusive and ill-advised statements about a dr who is one of his Only kind is not Canadian but seems from some dark corners of the planet earth. I feel offended when he/she writes about the hygienist. I have absolutely opposite experience and with extreme sensitivity {that has altered my quality of life since last two and half years, before I found Dr. Tatra from Internet} has been cared very professionally with great care by Dr. Tatra's hygienist. His whole team is fabulous. Since I found Dr. Tatra through the internet and RateMD, I feel strongly that its my duty to tell the truth to public at large. If people had not put up the good remarks on Dr. Tatra, I would have never been able to find him when I needed a real professional and a dentist of highest integrity to save my teeth and that was the time that I literally had lost the trust in dentists. I had no means but the peoples remarks on internet and on RateMD that helped me to put my trust in Dr. Tatra and his fabulous team. Public space like internet is a sacred place of trust and must be used with utmost responsibility. Baseless, Irresponsible and ill-mannered comments should be purged, I urge to RateMD management so that public is not confused and swayed by such egregious misreporting. Thanks Dr. Tatra and your team for your unmatched integrity and professionalism.

Dr. Tatra and the staff have been fantastic. I was extremely impressed with the thoroughness of the work done and the technology that allows me to see exactly what the doctor is seeing. You come away from any appointment understanding what your teeth are doing, and any paths forward. The procedures performed are always well considered and the rationale is provided through the use of images. Highly recommended!

I was worried I wouldn't find as good a dentist as I had in Vancouver, and my teeth are a huge priority for me. Sunny and his team exceeded all my expectations and provide even better care than I got on the mainland. His skill as a dentist has ensured that my teeth are always problem free and looking good. He personally checks them even when I'm just in for cleaning. Having the latest technology is a good thing, but when coupled with Sunny's skill it becomes a great thing. Thanks for keeping me smiling. Paul R
