Teeth that are broken, worn, or otherwise misshapen or damaged are often topped with crowns, restoring their shape and function. All-porcelain crowns, as opposed to metal or porcelain-metal hybrids, offer the most pleasing, natural-looking appearance. #DentalCrowns

Dr. Tau strives to preserve as much of your natural tooth as possible. When restoration is required, he plans aggressively so he can treat you conservatively. Using artistry and science, Dr. Tau effectively mimics mother nature and provides you with teeth that are healthy, comfortable, functional, and durable.

Severe cases of advanced decay, broken and missing teeth, loose teeth, and resulting pain in the head, neck, jaw, shoulders, and back may benefit from full mouth rehabilitation. This uses a combination of techniques to restore or replace every tooth in the mouth.

Always, always prompt for appointments. Tv, warm towel, snacks, lip balm... These are just some of the added personal touches that keep me coming back.

Excellent review by Diane Dearie Perfetti, via Facebook

I had several issues to deal with in the past week regarding my teeth. I called to make an appt and was fortunate to get an appt that same day. I must say Dr. Tau and the staff are incredible!! Extreme professionals all in one office! Tammy at the front desk was extremely nice and sweet, also, Michelle, she was just as pleasant and extremely attentive. I had scaling done by Rosemary who was a complete sweetheart!! Thank you all for an excellent experience! I have already recommended a close friend/family member! I will be returning in 6 weeks for a follow-up! Thank you guys for such a positive experience!

Dr. Leonard F. Tau is pleased to announce to all his patients, friends, neighbors, and the local community that he has been recognized as an Invisalign® Premier Provider, placing him among the top five percent of Invisalign® practitioners in North America.

Invisalign invisibly straightens your teeth with a series of custom-molded aligners. Invisalign is the virtually invisible way to straighten your teeth without braces, using a series of clear aligners for about two weeks, removing them only to eat, drink, brush and floss. As you replace each aligner with the next in the series, your teeth will move- little by little, week by week - until they have straightened to their final position.

Excellent review by Samantha,

I had my first appointment with Dr. Tau on Tuesday and all of my dental fears are now gone. I had an amazing experience and all of my anxiety and fears have gone out the door. I'm finally excited to start this dental journey I've feared for so long. Thank you for listening to me and making this such a positive experience.

Excellent review by James O.,

I have been going here for the last three-four years. PCDE is simply amazing inside and out.
Dr. Leonard Tau is a GREAT dentist and business developer. He makes you sure you understand and feel comfortable with the procedures and pricing.
But it is really his team and staff that puts the Excellence in this office. It is all about the little things. They are very inviting and accommodating to your needs or anxiety. They really work hard to make you feel at home. They explain what they are going to do before starting. And they periodically check if you are okay. I never waited more than a few minutes to be seen. The office has all the amenities, water, coffee, tea, snacks, TVs while you get work done.. If that matters to you.
With my busy schedule it is hard to find GREAT dentists who work on the weekends. A lot of dental places don't have weekend hours, but they accommodate late hours twice during the weekdays. I recently moved to California, but still come back.
If you need cleaning without insurance they have a very reasonable pricing plan. If you need INVISALIGN, this is the definitely the place to go.

Today, I went for a routine cleaning with Rose. She is a wonderful hygienist! She is super thorough and most importantly gentle, especially when scaling around my tweet and gum lines. Luckily, I didn't need any work done today but Dr. Tau checked my teeth and is a superb dentist! He is super knowledgeable, technologically advanced and extremely gentle! Especially good at easing those with dental anxiety! Look no further for your new Dr. Tau and his staff today!

Fantastic experience every single time! I have an anxiety disorder and I am BEYOND weary of dentists. This is the first place where I don't feel like my fears are being belittled. They really do take it slow and it's NEVER as bad as I imagine it would be every time. Absolutely recommended.

Ha!! I have to laugh at myself.. just wasted $1200!!! I ended up in this office for a second opinion on implants that I had placed years a highly anxious state... about dental work. I was referred by this office to a dental implant specialist up the road... but not before I left having agreed to buy snap on veneers that would cost me a measley $1200.. being promised that these veneers would work better than my temporary flipper and allow me to EAT with them in..WAS I A DUMMY!!.. I walked right into that one. I was shown another patients and what it would look like. I hastly agreed. After waiting a month, I picked up veneers that looked NOTHING like the ones I was shown. Yes they hang on to my teeth fine but eating is much more comfortable with my very old and much cheaper flipper!! Should have done my research.. Much cheaper and more quality products available online!! Truly profits over patient care!! Don't ever plan to go to a dentist while being in a highly anxious state without a designated financial advisor. Ha!!

I love Dr Tau & his staff I been a patient for a few years recently my insurence changed & had to go else where for a cleaning I have to say my teeth did not feel clean & it was a fast visit. I was definitely disappointed so I went back to Dr Tau for a REAL cleaning. Oh boy the quality can sure make a difference. I'd rather pay out of pocket then go else where! Thanks Dr Tau & Staff!!!!!

Painless needle! I first visited Dr Tau several years ago. What's kept me going is the professionalism and their painless needle. I've had two sittings which required numbing and Dr Tau's recipe is the best I've ever felt, because I didn't feel anything. I'll be visiting Dr Tau for years to come.

I recently had a procedure done at Dr. Tau's office. The procedure was a bit involved. Dr. Tau explained what needed to be done. I feel comfortable and confident he will do his best for me. His staff is kind, courteous and knowledgeable. Thanks to Dr. Tau and his staff I am now pain free. I would recommend him to everyone.

Everyone is extremely nice and care about patient comfort. They work well together and help out as much as possible. I have read some of the bad reviews and I am in no way affiliated with the office nor was I asked to write a review. I rarely write reviews but felt a need to today. I knew I was going to be late today and called in right before my appointment. Tammy was very nice on the phone, and said it was okay. When I arrived I apologized for being 12 mins late and once again Tammy said it was okay. I was stuck in traffic that caught me off guard. Not only that, I spent two hours there where they happily fit me in for teeth cleaning which I was very happy about since my appointment was just for a Invisalign scan. The hygienist Rosemary was very nice, knew what she was doing and for the first time ever I was introduced to numbing gel that made it completely pain free. Everyone was very nice. The only negative I have is that I got a slight sense of negativity when I asked about pricing (since I was told I needed a filling). I'm not rich so pricing and trying to reduce my cost is important. I'm sure everyone looks at cost and shops around before committing. So that's the one thing that could be changed a little. Overall though it was a very pleasant experience and I highly recommend them.
