The dentist and entire staff are the absolute best. They are unfailingly kind, helpful, and sensitive to their patients. Aside from doing a great job with routine dental work, Dr. Tapaltsyan does an expert job on more complex procedures and has repaired botched dental work my husband had done elsewhere. I am really glad I found Berkeley Hills Dentistry.

Dr. T and staff are amazing. I had to get a number of things done over multiple visits and needed to be fit in at the last minute several times. They were excellent at accommodating me. Everyone consistently answered all of my questions very well and I felt totally comfortable with everything. Highly recommend.

I absolutely love this dental office. From the location to staff to quality of work, they are truly unparalleled. Dr. Tapaltsyan designed and completed a full set of veneers for me about 3.5 years ago and while it was nerve wrecking, I can’t imagine having gone with any other dentist. I constantly get compliments on my smile, my mouth is healthier, and I feel a thousand times more confident to smile showing my teeth. I am now living in Southern California and always make an appointment for a cleaning when I’m in the Bay visiting. If you are considering any major work, I’d highly recommend and would be happy to answer any questions about my experience.

Sure this place is nice, clean, professional, and upscale vibes. But this is 100% the best dentist for kids! I’ve been taking my kids here for about a year now and they LOVE it. This is my dentist too but for kids, it’s amazing. Super easy parking, and my 4 and 5 year old love the vintage elevator.

I always feel very welcome here. Great vibe and latest technology and equipment. They have gone above and beyond to fit me in for emergency dental work and quickly reply to any questions or concerns through text and after hours phone. The offices are conveniently located for parking, very clean and everyone is very professional. Nice views from many of the chairs. Dr. T, Kat, Marina, Sonja and the whole staff are exceptional.

I recommend coming here, my appointments are always scheduled accordingly with many reminders sent to me so I don’t forget. The crew is very friendly and I feel like I really don’t have anything to worry about when I go esp when thinking about different what I need to get done. I can ask all my questions and feel confident making decisions about what to go through with for dental care. I’ve been coming for 2+ years and would recommend getting your dental hygiene checked here!

This has to be one of my best experiences at a dental office. This is my first visit to Berkeley Hills Dentistry, having relocated back to Berkeley recently. Everything was so efficient and I was in and out of the office in less than 45 minutes, from checking in and going through my paperwork to the cleaning. Dr. George Ibrahim was great and so were the entire staff.

Excellent staff, both medical and front office. Scheduling has been easy and they respect customers’ time: I rarely wait much upon arrival. Equipment seems up to date (e.g., they make crowns and night guards using 3D scanning). Treatment feels pragmatic: doing what’s needed, without frivolous suggestions. Glad to have found this practice.

I have been a patient at BHD for several years. My teeth have never been cleaner and in better health. Dr. T is knowledgeable and thorough with an excellent chair side manner. His hygienist Shoo is so gentle. When she cleans my teeth, I practically fall asleep. The office location is convenient and there is plenty of parking. I have had prior dentists over many decades. Dr. T. and his staff are the best by far.

Not one to normally write reviews, but this felt worthy. I have a had a lifetime of major dental issues over the years gave me me a phobia about dentists. When my front teeth began to fail me I knew it was time for major work. I began researching different dental approaches and offerings, I came up with what I wanted from my dentist.1. A single dentist to perform the work2. A dentist who has experience in this procedure.3. Someone who uses the latest technology to assist in the process.4. Transparency in costs.In my search I found Dr.Tapaltsyan, he checked all the boxes for me.Initially what really won me over was me submitting my picture to him for an online evaluation. In two days he emailed back a personal video of himself walking through his initial assessment and estimated cost. He even referenced me by name a couple of times which I appreciate, he gave me assurance that he was the dentist for me. For my first appointment Dr T did a thorough exam and I agreed to move forward with arch replacement. I admit I was very nervous but the procedure went smoothly and was one of the most painless experiences I have had at a dentist. Dr T, Kat, Anna, Elyse and the entire team really have there act together. I highly recommend Dr T for anyone who is considering major dental implant or arch replacement.

I recently moved to Berkeley, I had a dental issue arise (inflame 😂) and BHD took me as a new patient. They scheduled me for a few days out, and called me to fill an earlier cancellation; I was most grateful. Dr George took good care of me. I came back a few days later for a regular cleaning. Don’t be deceived by the building. This dental practice is a hidden jewel. Front desk staff, hygienist, PA, and DDS, all professional. I recommend without reservation.

Best dental experience I've ever had. I called during the early morning for an emergency appointment and luckily they were able to see me that same afternoon. Got me patched up and sent me home in less than an hour. The staff is very friendly, professional, and informative. All of my questions were thoroughly answered and I finally had peace of mind. 10/10 would recommend.

Went in for my for my first dental appointment in years, so didn't know what to expect. Everyone was friendly, and I wasn't made to feel badly about waiting so long to come in. The office was clean, and bright and I felt like I was in good hands throughout my entire visit. I will need to deal with some deferred maintenance which is to be expected. A type of mouth guard I haven't tried was recommended, and I want to get some minor chips restored. I am glad to have everything I need done in one place!

I called during Christmas week to schedule an emergency appointment to address a lost filling in a wisdom tooth. Amazingly, the staff was able to arrange an appointment the following afternoon, though they cautioned it would only be to evaluate the situation, not to repair the problem.I arrived for my appointment, was promptly seated in an examination room, and was able to see Dr. George within minutes.He not only evaluated the problem, but he actually repaired it on the spot. He also discussed my options for more comprehensive treatments should the situation recur, though he did not push (nor actually recommend) a more expensive procedure.Dr. George and the Berkeley Hills Dentistry staff were professional, cordial, and wonderful to deal with in every respect.An excellent experience throughout.

I had life changing experiences here. I suffered from SEVERE dental anxiety, hadn't been to the dentist in over 20 years, and my teeth or what was left of them, were so poor I was having a difficult time eating. I ended up getting full mouth implants, and honestly couldn't have had a better experience. The doctor and ALL of his staff, (especially Kat) are the nicest, most understanding, least judgemental, professionals you will ever find. From easing my anxiety, explaining every detail, employing the best and latest technology this facility and the care received from it are incomparable. Top notch dental work is just the begining of what these people do and the difference it has made in my life.

Everyone is very professional. I received good dental care with efficiency that was above the mark in my experience. The dentist used high tech instrumentation that helped me regain n ability to chew and n both sides of my mouth; something I had not been able to do for almost four years. It was expensive and worth every penny, it’s my mouth. Deep sigh of relief. I hope all that was done holds and stays consistent with which all my dental care so far, was received. I highly recommend Berkeley Hills Dentistry.

Wow, what a wonderful dental experience. We’ve been shopping around in North Berkeley for a dentist for a while and have tried several. Some are dirty, some unprofessional, some unpleasant.We finally came to Berkeley Hills Dentistry and it was really great. We established care (x-rays and cleaning) for myself, my wife, and our 2 year old son. It was a nice, clean office. All the staff, from the front desk to the hygienist, to Dr Tapaltsyan were really stellar. They were professional, thorough, thoughtful, and very skillful.I could not recommend them any more!

I decided to have full mouth implants versus dentures. I was looking for a permanent solution that would improve my smile & be hassle free as I travel abroad a lot .I did a lot of research before choosing Berkeley Hills Dentistry. I felt extremely encouraged & reassured after my initial consultation with Dr. Tapaltsyan.The procedure went extremely well & I am over the moon with the results. The kindness of the staff & aftercare has been above & beyond.Thank you Dr. Tapaltsyan & Berkeley Hills Dentistry for the excellent service, kindness and most of all for giving me a confident smile which I longed for for many years.John R.

I came to this dental office for some years and it's always been good. When Doctor Talpatsyan took over it became even better. He teaches at UCSF. I have very sensitive teeth and when I needed a root canal I was very nervous as my teeth are sometimes hard to completely anesthetize. This time my root canal was so peaceful that when I left I immediately came back with a beautiful orchid from the shop downstairs I was so grateful! Cleanings are also great!

Cannot say enough good things about this office. Everyone is so nice and professional. The doctor is super skilled. They took me in on short notice to repair a chipped tooth. Thanks to the doctor’s magic hands, even myself can not tell and feel there was a damage.

I had complete dental implants, upper and lower, which is quite a detailed process. I had previously checked out a few places, big chains who claim to do everything in one day. But Dr. T was careful about explaining why that may not be my best choice based on my specific dental health and age. At every step of the way I felt informed, had all my questions answered in detail, and the doctor called to check on me after each major step to make sure I was tolerating the process.One’s smile and dental health are important and I always felt uncomfortable about my teeth. Now I get compliments on my smile all the time. Probably because I’m smiling more! Those close to me have seen the biggest change in my confidence and self-esteem. The Berkeley Hills Dental team are an amazing group of professionals, but they’re also compassionate people who really cared about my feelings along the way.

This is an amazing dentist office. I haven’t been to a dentist in quite some time due to the pandemic, but everyone here was extremely nonjudgmental. The overall cleaning went great, I was checked-in with often to see how I was doing, if I needed anything, etc. The doctor and dental assistants were really knowledgeable and thorough. The receptionists are amazing too, so bubbly and kind. I highly recommend!

Alright, pardon the wall of text but I had to leave a review! This place has been across my family business for years so I thought I’d check it out to get an estimate for implants. Basically, I saw Dr. Tapaltsyan (I call him Dr. T) for full mouth implants after getting a few consults from the area and in SF, which I wasn’t too thrilled about. It was imperative to find someone who could do everything in house, and had experience with the implants (hello, major surgery!), but also use some of the new technologies I’ve seen to make it as lease invasive as possible.Having years of dental issues I’ve definitely developed a phobia of dentists, resulting in you can imagine next, which is why my constraints were so important.I saw that Dr Tapaltsyan’s office checked off all my boxes, so I setup an initial virtual consultation, which was free. Dr T took the time to review all my concerns and sent me a custom video back, which included an estimated cost. I was happy to get some transparency so quickly, and avoid going into the office (hello, anxiety).Tldr: Subsequent surgery and recovery went really well and the staff, including Dr. T we’re all super nice and patient with my situation. I’m stoked about the result, mostly because it was painless and a really smooth experience overall. I highly recommend this practice for anyone who is interested in major dental implants or any other dental work. Don’t worry about your anxiety, you’re in good hands, I wish I did this sooner!

I had not been to the dentist in 5 years. I had a lot of plaque and overall my teeth weren’t in great shape. I made an appointment here, and they were more than wonderful! They took the time needed without making me feel bad and got me set up with a good plan. I highly recommend this dentist office for anybody.

THANK YOU Berkeley Hills and Doctor Tapaltsyan. I've had 3 implants done simultaneously and I am so so happy with the results. I highly recommend! You will not find a better dentist or implant specialist in the bay area.Here's my story: I live in San Francisco. I researched implant dentists all over the bay before making a decision. I was in bad shape, in serious pain mostly from my own neglect over the years (I'm 57) but also from having a dentist who made things worse. The pain was chronic and then, on a camping trip (to Death Valley no less), acute. My old dentist recommended root canal. I had my doubts (pretty sure he gets a referral fee) then went to other dentists who examined the x-rays and said root canal would never never work. Poorly trained dentists abound!All to say, if you are in a similar situation I am more than confident to recommend Berkeley Hills. I honestly feel they are at the top of their game in all of the bay area. In my situation there was no quick fix. The doctor knew how to reduce the pain immediately which helped and then the work began over a series of appointments and stages. I needed a bone graph. Whole process took bout a year. The doctor is incredibly knowledgable and works to preserve existing teeth. In my case I did need three implants. Now I have a full set of teeth and operating at 100%. It's been a couple weeks since I finished up and every day I wake up in gratitude. Go to this dentist!A final note about cost. I'm not wealthy. I paid for it with a combination of out of pockets payments, a loan from a friend and with dental insurance. The office staff (amazing!!!) printed out a schedule of payments when we knew what needed to be done. Comparatively the prices are within bay area prices. I did consider doing the cross-border run to Mexico but when you add up the cost of travel, time off from work, the fact that you can't just have quick check ups, and the gamble of randomly choosing a dentist, it didn't seem worth it in the end.I wish everyone great teeth!!

I've had numerous appointments here, each with different kinds of dental work done, and every experience has been wonderful. I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to my teeth and also dental work in general, but this practice works hard to make the experience as quick and as painless as possible.Dr. Tapaltsyan is gentle and efficient, keeps you updated throughout any work, and frequently makes sure that you're not in pain.The receptionists are some of the most friendly I have ever met; they will work hard to find a convenient appointment for you. They will also advocate for you with your insurance company if need be to ensure you get charged a fair price for any treatments.

I had a wonderful experience with the entire staff of Berkeley Hills Dentistry. I have a great deal of anxiety going to the dentist. Dr. Tapaltsyan walked me through the entire procedure, which helped calm my nerves during a root canal. Kat, at the front desk is so bubbly and nice. Definitely recommend them for anyone who wants to do sedation dentistry to overcome dental anxiety.

Another Incredible visit to Berkeley Hills Dentistry 🙂 I had my teeth cleaning done and let me just say.My oral hygienist, Gina, was nothing short of an artist.I’ve never,I mean never, been able to sit in those dentist chairs & not clutch the armrests & lock my feet together in stress.Gina’s craftsmanship,chairside manner & sheer Awesome ability to do her job was remarkable,truly.I Literally,did not even flinch once the entire time (unheard of for me) as Gina’s ability were able to do All the work on my teeth & I didn’t even feel her working on my teeth. It was extraordinary! Thank you Gina for an incredible job!

Oh my god I love this place. My first time in I showed up on the completely wrong day and they were kind enough to see my anyway, on a Friday afternoon no less.

Dr Tapaltsyan is by far the best dentist I've ever seen. My first visit was a tooth infection because the previous dentist did not fill the root correctly, then he was able to save a tooth that 2 other dentist wanted to pull because they could not get my bottom jaw numb.He's very efficient, does excellent work, knowledgable, his staff are the nicest people. Im so lucky to have found this dentist

I had my first appointment with Berkeley Hills Dentistry today and they were so incredibly helpful! Everyone is nice and on top of it. Also Kat is amazing and so sweet. She helped me with booking my appointment and getting the new patient process started and even with my insurance. She made it so easy. I wish there were a Kat at every doctors office!

Came to find this office because of a chipped tooth, they saw me within an hour and got it taken care of. I liked the doctor’s knowledgeability and the front office’s warmth and kindness so much, I scheduled a cleaning with them. To no surprise, their hygiene team is also excellent! My cleaning was lovely. Thank you to the entire team.

Dr. Dashiell and her staff were excellent! I had a fairly lengthy procedure and was never uncomfortable. Dr. Dashiell was careful to explain each step. She is clearly devoted to her work and seems to go the extra distance to provide high quality care. Highest recommendation!

Excellent dentist office. I hadn't been in years. I was busy, they were nice to me. Of course I brush and floss 2x's daily, keep the dentist away that way. Going to keep these as my Dentist office for a while now. Hard to find good professionals, with such a well run ship that has excellent bedside manners. 15/10 would recommend to anyone thinking about getting a new dentist.

Wonderful experience! The whole staff is extremely welcoming and professional. Dr. Koppel has been my dentist for years and I was heartbroken when I heard he retired and definitely a bit apprehensive walking into my appointment with Dr. Dashiell. Having just had my appointment, I see now that my fears were groundless. She was undoubtedly one of the kindest, most efficient and truly talented dentists I have ever met. Two thumbs way way up.

During my one year stay in the Bay Area I was recommended to see Dr. Tapaltsyan when my filling chipped. My tooth was bothering me and I needed to be seen quickly. The receptionist was very pleasant and helpful. She sensed the urgency in my voice and gave me an appointment within two days.Dr. Tapaltsyan and his staff were absolutely wonderful. They were very accommodating. I am glad I was able to fix my tooth before it got worse. Dr. Tapaltsyan's chair side manner is great. He was very gentle and thorough. I highly recommend him to my friends and family.I went back a few weeks later for a thorough exam and cleaning. I am thankful for my friend's recommendation to see Dr. Tapaltsyan.

Dr. Tapaltsyan is a former instructor of mine at UCSF School of Dentistry, whom I worked with quite frequently while I was a student there. Although he supervised my own work, he often performed procedures on my patients while demonstrating techniques. My patients appreciated his speed, especially when he would sit down to make things look so easy. Because he is a UCSF alumnus like myself, I know that he was trained well as it is one of the top dental schools in the country. Because I've seen him treat my own patients, I know he is a skilled clinician. He has mentored me through difficult cases that many general dentists do not have experience in.My brother was in need of a dentist in the Bay Area for a root canal and his previous dentist was not able to do the procedure. I immediately thought of Dr. Tapaltsyan. He was more than willing to accommodate my brother into his busy schedule, while also doing exceptional work. He called to check in that day and a week later to see how he was healing.It is not easy to find a well-trained, skilled, and compassionate dentist. I have worked under many instructors during my training at UCSF but I would trust Dr. Tapaltsyan with any of my family members and myself.
