Ratings for Dr. G. Tatra
Dr. G.S. Tatra has made going to the dentist like visiting good friends. The front staff are wonderful and friendly and the hygienists are professional and warm. My wife and I are long time patients and we have consistently recommended the practice to everyone we know. My recent crown replacement was another example of his great work.
Dr. Tatra and his team are awesome! Very professional and gives honest advice. Just had a root canal, he made sure everything was done done professionally and I was comfortable through the procedure. Dr. Tatra cares about his patients as he calls them to see how they are doing after appointments!
Exceptional professionalism. Dr Tatra's office is well organized, efficient, competent, and patient centred. My husband, son, and recently myself have received care from him, and, consistently, it has been excellent. He presents options, noting costs (short term and long term), to consider, and is honest. He is conservative and cautious. we are new to Victoria, after having one of the top dentists in the country in Ontario, so I am thrilled and relieved to have found a great dentist in Victoria.
All my life I've had severe anxiety over going to the dentist, but Sunny and his staff have a way of easing my nerves. He constantly checks in during the procedure to make sure I'm not in any pain, even 4 hours after I've seen him, Sunny calls me to check in again and see how my pain is. He's an outstanding dentist. I would highly recommend him and his staff.
I've been going to Dr. Tatra for a year and half now. I'm never disappointed by the outcome after wards. He listens to what my needs are and if I'm close to going over my insurance we create a plan that works best for me so I don't end up having to pay much out of pocket. He's such a great and helpful dentist. He even has his personal number on his cards so you're able to reach him at all times of the day. I would recommend him to anyone.
I am from vancouver and new to victoria . My friend has recommended me to see her dentist Dr. Tatra, and I am glad she did . I find him professional and taking his time to listen to my concerned . I would not hesitate to recommend him to any one I know. His receptionist Aileen is very helpful in finding appointment time even for an emergency . I have had my teeth cleaned by Heather and Rachell and they were both amazing . I find Dr Tatra very personable & professional as he took the time to explain everything and gave me options for short term and long term treatment. He even called me the evening to see how I was recovering . 👌 Thank you Dr. Tantra and the staffs , Michelle Nguyen :-)
Worst dentist I've ever had, he seems nice at first but later on is extreamly rude. Once I went in just for a cleaning and he said that if I didn't get my cavity filled that day then I would have to find a new doctor, I had work so I couldn't and he didn't understand so I left. Would not reccomend him to anyone! He doesn't care about his patients only about making money.
