I cannot say enough about this place! I had been referred to this office by my co-worker who raved about this dentist mentioning how efficient, modern and educational Dr. Taheri is. For starters, I am not one to go to the dentist willingly but I knew it was time to find a new office after my prior dentist could not accommodate my work schedule so I decided to give this place a try. The receptionist, Liz was so nice and helpful with all my questions to setup my appointment and patiently listened to my needs. On the day of my appointment, I was able to get a cleaning with the hygienist, Arissa who took the time to educate me on the importance of my overall oral health and did an amazing job on my deep cleaning that I am looking forward to my next visit with her to finish! I had my exam afterwards with Dr. Taheri. He took so much time explaining what would be best for my needs and how easy the process would be that I completed my crown that day! I couldn’t believe I was able to get everything done and even more shocked they had a machine that will complete my crown the same day!! Wowww!!! A super plus since I’m limited on time as is. I am so happy I found this gem of an office that I am recommending my family and friends to give them a try as well! You will not be disappointed if you’re looking for a great office with an amazing staff!

We started coming here 6 or 7 months ago. Due to health problems, I was in need of extensive work. Dr. Taheri has been great. He takes his work very seriously, and does a beautiful job. My daughter has dentist anxiety and a history of brushing difficulty. He is not judgmental at all, and he’s helped her to improve her dental care. He also believes in pain-free dentistry. My daughter is no longer terrified of going. I also want to say that I’ve been to several dentist offices where they examine you, then a “closer” comes in and starts trying to sell you on expensive elective procedures. Mayo Dental is not a mill. It’s a small, intimate office, and they all care about your comfort and well being. We are very happy with Mayo Dental.

I remember first coming to this dentist office to see Dr. Taheri about a year ago when I ended up chipping my tooth! It was an very awful time..walking around with a piece missing on my front tooth- luckily Dr. taheri and his team were able to fit me in the next morning of the incident to have it fixed ! Everything about this establishment is professional, hygienic and relaxing in many ways ! (everyone knows the dentist can be intimidating at times) Dr. taheri is now where I go for my family, and of course my own teeth maintenance/ needs !  I would definitely recommend him!

Darcy S. from Valencia, Santa Clarita, (Source: Yelp)


Dr Tahari has been treating my husband and I. He has treated us for the last couple of years. We are so pleased with his work. He has done Implants on my bottom teeth. I use to have the most embarrassing smile because of my teeth. He has taken care of my teeth and did a beautiful job. I am so happy that we found a dentist that cares 100 percent about the care he gives his patients. I am so proud of referring him to my friends and anyone that needs to have a great caring Dentist. My smile is beautiful thanks to the wonderful staff at May Dental. My husband and I are forever grateful we walked into his office. I hope if you need a dentist you will set up your appointment at his office.

Very nice office, nice staff and Dr. Taheri does great work! I hate going to the dentist, but this office is very calming and serene feeling, like a spa. A bit on the sterile-feeling side perhaps for kids (we’ll find a different pediatric dentist). Like most dentists, they tried to “upsell” me on some procedures that weren’t necessary, but weren’t at all pushy about it. I went for my annual cleaning, and another time for a repair to an old filling. I was very pleased with my experience having the filling repaired — normally I dread any time the dentist comes at me with tools, but Dr. Taheri and his staff were kind, and did a great job of making me comfortable and completing the procedure quickly and (relatively) painlessly.

“NO ONE LEAVES HERE WITHOUT A TOOTH”. I feel slightly emotional writing this long overdue review about Dr. Taheri and his amazing practice, May Dental. Maybe it’s because I’m pre-menopausal so bear with me. I found Dr.Taheri a few years ago after a botched tooth canal job on my then 14 or 15 year old daughter. Unfortunately I selected the closest dental place that took her state insurance – denti-cal. This is normally unlike me as the crazy, devoted and loving mom to 3 amazing people but I digress… either way it was horrible experience (but that’s just another review!). The ONLY great thing to come of that (yes, I’m a glass half full, not empty type of girl) was having to perform the initial missing due diligence and finding Dr. Taheri and his amazing staff! By the time we consulted with him on her botched tooth canal it was no longer salvageable and the word “malpractice” was being thrown out there by my legalshield attorney. So, that was the beginning of a valued family dentistry relationship with me and my 3 kids! So now fast forward to present. One of my front teeth broke off aka one of the teeth you can see clearly no matter what I’m doing broke off!!! While I don’t consider myself vain per se, I do take pride in the way I look and present myself and when this happened I CRIED then I texted Dr. Taheri on his emergency text number on a Friday night! I mean this WAS an emergency after all!!! He texted me right back!!! He is not normally opened on Saturdays but told me he’d see me there the following day. So, i did what any normal girl would do! I thanked him profusely including offering to name my next child after him – that is of course if I could even birth another one and then proceeded to camp out in front of his office door earlier then appointment time – definitely venturing on the edge of stalker status. This man is amazing. I was sitting in the chair and he’s bending over looking for something in a drawer while explaining my 2 different temporary options and he reassuringly adds, “don’t worry Josie, NO ONE leaves here without a tooth”. Oh man! I had to hold back tears! I was going to be okay and I wasn’t going to look like a crazy woman while I arrange getting an implant etc… I ended up selecting the clear tray option as seen in the photos. This man had to manually mold and prepare this tray – I apologize for the non-dental lingo but let’s just say I had to come back HOURS later to pick it up. I’m a nosy but very interested person in general – I mean knowledge is power right? So I had him explain the whole process when I went to pick-up the tray… and I knew then that the price he charged me was extremely affordable for all the work and time it took him. Dr. Taheri is a very humble and kind man but he doesn’t spend a lot of time looking for kudos so this is my only real way to thank him! So, if you’re looking for a family dentist, he is also a trained and qualified endodontic doctor and a graduate of NYU dental school – I’m a New Yorker, born and raised and I know that it’s NOT easy to get into NYU! I don’t want to neglect to mention that his staff is also the best! I especially love his dental assistant Edwin! He’s SO sweet too! My kids always have a great experience going there! Thank you Dr. Taheri for taking care of us so well!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

This place is clean and well maintained. What a dental office should be. Dr. Taheri and his staff are excellent. The Dr is very soft and well spoken and makes the process much easier. I always loved going to the dentist but recently had an infection from a failed root canal from another office. I was very sad to lose a tooth but now that a couple months have passed, I feel so much better. There was no pain during the pulling process or at any time after. I also did Invisalign with Dr. Taheri. It was not for aesthetics (though he specializes and does that very well). It was for an incorrect bite and front gap. I am able to chew my food properly and have no more pain after waking up at night. As a bonus, my teeth really do look fantastic now. I wasn’t doing it for looks but my teeth look significantly better. I will always see Dr. Taheri as long as I live here because it is hard to find a dentist you can trust. Thanks!

I first went to this dentist office after called about 5 around Santa Clarita. Either those 5 did not have Saturday appointments or plainly never called me back. I nearly gave up. But one day in the mail I receive an ad for this dentist office so I thought I would try. When I called Mayo Dental the very first time, Lupe, the office manager I believe, firstly actually answered the phone unlike the other unnamed dentist offices. Since this was my first time using dental insurance, she took down all the information I could provide and she said she would call me back. Honestly, I thought it would take a week or so due to my luck thus far. She called back in 15 minutes with all the info in regards to my coverage etc!! I made an appointment right away.  My first appointment there was for xrays and an exam, Dr. Taheri noticed the decay in some of my teeth and offered fillings, without having to wait weeks for another appointment he did it right there at that time! I havent been to a dentist for about 10 yrs (when I had braces when I was younger) so I was very nervous about the fillings. He explained the process and any sensations I would have. As they set up for the procedure, I stayed in the chair and happily watched whatever I wanted on netflix. During the procedure, Dr Taheri was very attentive to any reason I felt I needed to take a break. He was very patient and kind. After procedure, he laid out a plan to relieve my periodontal disease as well as wisdom teeth extraction and invisilign. Now, let me say first he did not push anything on me. He explained everything well and I am the one who asked for invisilign. I was not pressured at all which also put me at ease. He showed me my teeth on xray as he explained everything very clearly. My appointments were set for wisdom teeth extraction (2 and 2, not all four at once because he noticed how tired my mouth gets), as well as a deep cleaning. When I went in for the extractions, they let me watch netflix after I received Valium, as I was very nervous. During the extractions, he explained what he was going to do so I would not be too shocked with unknown things happening in my mouth. After that procedure, I called 4 or so days later due to pain and he text me back! He was concerned and said he would take me in that very day. Since I had class, I didnt think I would be able to but he said he could take me at 8pm after my class. Just fantastic!! After he did whatever he needed to do, I am not a dentist but I think it was the meds for dry socket, I was pain free.  I went in today for my cleaning and like the other three times, the office staff and dentist techs and Dr Taheri all were pleasant as usual.  I rave about this office and all its staff to my family and co-workers and they think I am such an oddball to look forward to going to the dentist. When you have a great dentist and staff, then why not look forward to an appointment that will help your health of your teeth?!  Thank you everyone at Mayo Dental….I will see you soon

Penny L. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Taheri’s for some months now & I’m always impressed by the amazing service I receive. Dr. Taheri is beyond thorough with his work & I am always confident in the treatment he recommends and provides. The office is always kept clean & I’m greeted with smiling faces the minute I walk in the door. The staff is friendly, considerate, and professional. I love going to May Dental & I recommend this establishment to everyone in the area. Tell them Penny sent you!

Linda R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Mark Taheri, dentist at May Dental is the best, most knowledgeable, kindest and fairest dentist my family has ever gone to. First took my granddaughter, age 6, about 7 years ago. She has high excites , would scream and would not even let a dentist look in her mouth. Dr. Taheri was so patient and gentle with her, explaining each thing he was going to do, in such a soft and caring manner, he won her over. He always lets an adult stay in the room with a child, which I cannot say that for most dentists.He has since gained the business of 7 of our family members, and we all are very satisfied with this pain free dentist. His assistant is also wonderful

Courtney H. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can not begin to express how grateful I am for May Dental, Dr. Taheri and his staff.
They are my dental heros! No matter what I always have a wonderful experience every time I have visited this office. Dr. Taheri just extracted my wisdom teeth, I was a bit nervous but Dr. Taheri and his dental assistant made sure I was comfortable and at ease throughout the entire procedure. It was fast and essentially painless. I couldn’t believe how great of experience I had here as compared to hearing stories about other dental experiences with other dentists. They went above and beyond at May Dental what I could have asked for. I can’t wait to come back for my whitening next time!

Dante C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taheri and Staff are all top notch. We have never had a positive experience with a dentist in the past until we went to Mayo Dental and met Dr. Taheri.  We can tell you this much….you will not feel like cattle being pushed through.  Dr. Taheri takes his time, ensures you are comfortable and is genuinely caring about your comfort and the dental work he performs.  He took time to ensure that our impressions were perfect and that the temporary bridge was comfortable and looked great asthetically.  He was so gentle that I became so relaxed I think I fell asleep in the chair.  Wow, and we even received a phone call from the office to ensure that we are both doing well. My husband and I are both thrilled to finally find a dentist that is professional, caring, educated and most importantly strives to provide the highest quality work and service. If you are in need of a dentist, we highly recommend Dr. Taheri.   You will not be dissapointed!

Addy M. from Lake Hughes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I visited May Dental yesterday to get a second opinion on my tooth. A few weeks ago, I visited a dentist and did not have a great experience. I was referred to May Dental by a family friend. I have never been a fan of the dentist, especially after my expierience a few weeks ago.My fears started to disappear as I talked with the friendly staff. When Dr. Taheri came back and explained my X-rays and what I needed done, I knew I had made the right decision getting the second opinion. He explained everything in such great detail and even showed me on the X-ray and in my mouth what was happening. He was so gentle, I didn’t even feel the shot. Even when he was doing the work, I felt no pain. I left the office smiling which never happens and I am so happy with the work that was done. If you are looking for a great dentist, look no further!

Joy B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I must confess that the going to the dentist has never been my favorite thing.However I had to book an appointment with Dr Taheri for a RCT.I dreaded the upcoming appointment with trepidation.I must say I was surprised at the outcome! It was a whole new  painless experience. The  ambience was amazing,my fear walked out the door the second i stepped into the clinic-friendly and efficient staff were on hand to attend to me. I must say I am now a #teamMayDental# fan and I will difinately recommend to anyone with a tooth problem.

Kerri T. from Las Vegas, NV  (Source: Yelp)


I want to take this opportunity to write a review on Dr. Mark Taheri and May Dental. I had relocated to California for several months and found I needed dental work after having my front teeth chip. I found Dr. Taheri by going online. I went to him and he took me in immediately and handled my troublesome issue. I liked he and his staff so much that I actually rescheduled to get major cosmetic and basic work done. I have been to good dentists and bad dentists. Dr. Taheri is by far the BEST dentist I have EVER been to. Not only is he on “top of his game” with his knowledge of the most updated procedures and products; he is by far the most gentle and pain free dentist I have ever been to. His shots were almost painless. (and I had to have several since I got my 6 front teeth veneered). His work was impeccable. I am in the entertainment industry and it is vital that my smile be beautiful. He was truly and artist as he made my teeth perfect! He reshaped and made my teeth the very best they could be. I consider it a blessing to have found such a stellar dentist with such a compassionate staff. He will be my dentist from now on. I actually don’t even live in CA anymore but will always return to him for my dental needs

Paul G. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I normally would never give a 5 star, unless it’s really good food, but this was worth it. Yep, just pinched myself, not dreaming. I actually found an honest, great dentist. I had some bad dental experiences in Valencia, like the last one who told me I needed 5 cavities filled and wanted to charge me a billion dollars (I guess the fillings were made of adamantium steel and I would also start self regenerating after they did their procedure). Long story short, I found Mayo Dental. He was able to take a heavily opinionated, super skeptical, anti-dentist Italian and actually make him like dentistry again and enjoy the process (and I got a root canal). Dr. Taheri may speak quietly and seemingly looks young (I guess he eats Wheaties for breakfast), but he is very experienced. While my face was going numb and I started to drool on myself, he was sharing his experiences. He has done some hard procedures and has worked on the front lines of tough dentistry. He is a perfectionist, which is great in this profession, and seems really passionate about what he does. Lastly, his pricing was actually reasonable. No one likes to pay for an annoying tooth, but he is honest and won’t try to sham you into getting more than you need (Like six phantom cavities filled).

Danny O. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was recommended by a friend to try out May Dental. With her knowing I hate the dentist and everything surrounding their processes she pushed me to check them out. I am very happy I went. From courteous staff at the counter to a really professional DDS Mark Taheri who runs the office, it was very easy to let he and his team do the work that was necessary. I chipped my 2 front teeth on some food from a restaurant and I needed to get them repaired asap as it made me very uncomfortable to talk or smile as I was self conscious. DDS Mark and his team made me feel right at home throughout the entire process. Place was very clean and very friendly. I will drive out of my way to Santa Clarita to get my work done here.

Laura Steaner (Source: Google)


This place is a total scam and fraud. My insurance covers 100% all treatments and had been double verified for a coverage. Dr.Taheri tried to extort from me $1 for my visit, really?How low is that? Also , after my cleaning treatment he supposed to do my full mouth an oral exam and he refused to do so ..His statement was, well why would I do the exam , if most likely you go to other provider to fix the problem. My insurance was charged that that for the full oral exam as well. Stay away from this scan artist!

Kristina M. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Based on my personal experience and the amount of dental work I have undergone in the past, I can decipher between an experienced, well-rounded dental surgeon from a doorknob who claims to know what he or she is doing while attempting to rob you dry.As a first time patient at May Dental, I must say I am beyond impressed and relieved.  Prior to Dr. Mark and the staff who attended to my dental procedure, I had never witnessed and experienced such empathetic medical practitioners.  Not only was Dr. Mark extremely meticulous and compassionate, his staff was particularly conscientious and careful during my procedure.  What more could anyone ask for when undergoing the most uncomfortable dental procedure!As we are all aware, it is VERY difficult to find a dental surgeon you can confide in and fully trust.  Blissfully, I did not have to work with Dr. Mark.  Dr. Mark worked with ME and accommodated to my difficult dental demand.  I could not imagine going anywhere else.  I assure you, you will not have a greater experience than one at May Dental.  Thank you Dr. Mark and staff for making my experience worthwhile and alleviating my fear of dentistry.  I shall see you soon!

David A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow May Dental was deluxe! Perfect service. Clean, Quiet, and Comfortable. Dr Mark was the best dentist I’ve ever seen. My teeth look great, I feel great ! Im 100% Satisfied all together with my treatment. The secretary and hygienist were very professional and polite. This establishment is a perfect example of what every business in America should be like. Thanks guys!

Michael M. from Mid Central, Pasadena, (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taheri and his team are incredible. All staff are always welcoming and making appointments is easy. Every procedure I’ve ever had there has been painless, and the results are always outstanding. Dr. Taheri has a passion for the work, and that reflects clearly in the results. I’m so grateful, it’s thanks to him and his team that I now have healthy teeth, and a smile that I can be proud of.

Trisha Lyle (Source: Google)


Dr.Taheri is a sweet kind hearted Doctor! He truly cares about his patient and for their well being. I recall one time I had a problem with a temporary that happened to fall off over the weekend. Scary right!!! I called his office which was closed but left a message. He return my call and said to meet him in the office in two hours to fix the problem tooth. I was completely blown away that he came in on his day off to fix my tooth. So if you are looking for a new dentist he’s your pick for sure!

Alia Alfia (Source: Google)


Let’s just say that if I had to travel to see Dr. Mark Taheri from another country, I totally would. He is the kind of doctor you can trust and he takes care of every single detail in his work. I felt as if he knew exactly what bothers me. His assistant Edwin also did a great job. He attentively took care of something I didn’t think needed to be done. Sometimes, as a patient, you simply don’t know what is right and what is wrong and it is difficult to pinpoint, although you try. With May dental, I have a reassurance.  Initially I was looking for a dentist with innovative equipment since we are living in the 21st century. Well, he’s got it. I was also looking for a dentist who practices from a minimally invasive point of view. Well, he does, from my personal experience. He also takes time to explain everything to you so there are no questions in your mind when you go home after the appointment.  I was fearful of my previous dentist and wouldn’t let him do the job on some of my teeth. With Dr. Taheri I have confidence. Quality and minimally invasive dentistry is what I can thank him for.

Ana S. from East Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the first time I have written a Yelp review for anyone but it is deserving. I had nothing but great experiences while going to see Dr. Mark Taheri. His team was great and he did a great job explaining everything that he was doing and listening to what I had to say. He kept me calm during all of my appointments and answered all of my questions. After seeing many different dentists I can say that Dr. Mark Taheri and his team are the best I have seen and I will continue to go there and would highly recommend them to anyone

Ryan S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just wanted to express how I have the best Dentist in the world. I came into his office with doubt, fear and most of all uncertainty. A year ago I had no hope in the world that I could ever have my teeth fixed. As my Dentist Dr Taheri has been with me every step of the way. I would refer him to anyone. He is best! He cares and the staff are amazing! I have no worries that I will have the most beautiful smile again. Thank you for everything from the bottom of my heart. I truly believe you and your staff are the best! Beautiful Work so far. I would have him as a lifetime Dentist. You have any doubts or any issues with your Teeth he will guide you the right and best way. Thank you.  Patient Darcy Smallwood

Rosario L. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taheri has been our dentist since we’ve moved from Illinois in 2012. I found him in Google when I was looking for one in the Santa Clarita area. I am thankful he is the one I found. I am doing this review in Yelp because this is where I go when looking for a good restaurant, service offices, etc. Dr. Taheri is very professional, thorough, honest, perfectionist and helpful. We had a problem one time with our insurance not approving something and he took the time to write to the insurance to justify the charges for the services rendered himself. Another time was May Dental had my denture done and when the fit was off because it was done by a new worker he had it done all over again gladly and willingly. I will definitely recommend Dr Taheri of Mayo Dental! He is a good person

Nicholas D. from Mount Hope, KS (Source: Yelp)


Though I haven’t been with May Dental for a long time, I can say Dr Taheri and his staff has been nothing but excellent towards my family and I. We had been screwed over by our previous dentistry practitioners but May Dental is without a doubt the best decision we have made for a dentist. I highly advise anyone who wants a welcoming staff and a stand up job of dental work to come. They treat you with respect and consider every aspect of what is best for your teeth. They always show you with kindness, and if nervous, make you feel relaxed and comfortable. May Dental does what needs to be done for your teeth and does not take any steps without the consent of their costumers.

You don’t know what is amazing dental work until your pay the price for horrible dental work. Unfortunately this was a lesson I had to learn. Prior to going to Dr. Mark I was a client at a high end dental office in the Valencia area. I was under the impression I was getting great dental care. After many operations, two teeth subtractions, and thousands of dollars I came to the realization that the “high end Valencia dentist” was not caring for my mouth with integrity. Sadly I had already spent unnecessary money and had unnecessary operations. After searching the internet for a new dentist to help reverse the damage done on my mouth I found Dr. Mark Taheri. At first I was hesitant to trust a new dentist after having such a horrible experience with the last one, but after sitting down with him and hearing his genuine care and sympathy for my situation as well as desire to fix my teeth I was sold! Since that first initial meeting Dr. Mark has carefully fixed and healed my teeth. He has been quick to explain every step of every procedure and always faithful to ask me my thoughts and concerns. One particular time he proved his integrity to me by denying my request for a rootcanel (when I wrongfully thought I needed one). Instead gave me a lower cost fix when he could have followed my request and made a ton more money. On top of that he has successfully given me implants for the teeth that were wrongfully removed by my last dentist. My experience with Dr. Mark Taheri and his staff is nothing less then amazing! I not only like there service, but I TRUST their service.  I HIGHLY recommend everyone to go to Dr. Mark for their dental work

I got a custom made night guard from May Dental to protect my teeth from grinding and I’m extremely satisfied. The dentist explained to me that the purpose of a night guard is to decrease the forces of grinding and clenching. I grind my teeth at night and I once chipped a tooth! My night guard was custom-molded to my teeth, so it fits in my mouth without being bulky or uncomfortable. Super happy. I highly recommend May dental! I have also got deep cleanings and other procedures done here and I’m very satisfied.

Zamora B. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough other than I have been a    Dr. Taheri patient over 8 years . Never had bad experience staff always friendly and accommodating.  Office has never been sales focused with unnecessary treatment plans from Day 1.  That speaks volumes .  Sales is  common practice for healthcare providers/ denists that I have worked with in the  past. I don’t have before and after pictures but we have came a long way. Thank you Dr. Taheri. I receive compliments on my smile daily. Dr Taheri you have my permission to share  before and after.

S. D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very clean office. Doctor and staff are friendly and courteous. Been a patient for a year or so. Recommended my nephew visit Dr. Mark after his dentist said he needed a bunch of work done because he has chipped teeth. Other dentist wanted to do a bunch of fillings. Dr. Mark recommended to start with a night guard to safeguard any more damage and fillings wouldn’t necessarily be needed. Night guard came in a week later and seems to be doing the trick. Thanks Mayo Dental keep it up!

Soroush H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taheri has been my go-to dentist ever since we moved out to SCV. His honesty, professionalism and soothing nature keeps me and my family coming back for our dental needs. He is consistent with the quality of work he does, does not try to up-sell, and is truly dedicated to his profession. I am pleased to have him as my dentist for many years to come and have referred my family and my closest of friends to him and they have all come back to thank me for my referral. His staff is always caring and responsive to my needs as well. Moreen is always smiling and pleasant to talk to and I continue to look forward to my visits and catching up with some old friends:)

Marie D. from Studio City, Los Angeles, (Source: Yelp)


For about 5 years I put off going to the dentist, because my last experience was so dreadful. I recently added dental insurance to my health plan thinking it was about time to at least go in for a check up and cleaning. So I did one of those “insurance searchers” and found May Dental that was close to my home at the time. My initial plan was to just go in for a cleaning/check-up to see if I even wanted this dentist to do additional work. From almost the first moment I felt very comfortable. His soft spoken nature is comforting and he takes the time to explain each procedure in detail. I don’t know how he does it, but he makes you feel like you are the only client he has that day. All questions asked are answered — in detail, and I never feel like I’m being rushed out of the chair. The other thing I really appreciate about this office is that my wait time was NO wait! And all the other times that I have been to this office, the longest I had to wait was “maybe” 5 minutes. This shows me that the office is respectful of your time and I’m always greeted kindly by whom ever is at the front desk. I won’t go into various details on my numerous visits to this office since discovering them this year, but I will share my last one. It appears the last dentist I had put 2 crowns on my last 2 back teeth and told me they did 2 root canals. Come to find out, they did one crappy root canal and just put a cap on the other tooth and never did a root canal on that tooth, which in turn, cost me to loose that tooth. The other tooth that they did a root canal on was such a shot-y job, that Dr. Taheri had to re-do the work of another dentist that should have never had to be done. It is amazing nothing real serious happened to me as I had been walking around with this throbbing pain in my jaw for a few years every time I would go for a walk thinking it was heart related. I would have not discovered this if it hadn’t been for Dr. Taheri’s order to detail and getting to the “root” of the problem. The bottom line: I am no longer in pain, no longer have the throbbing in my jaw that I have been dealing with off and on for the past few years. As for the other tooth that had the crappy root canal, it had so much infection that I lost that tooth, but have an option to get an implant in a few months. I am so impressed with this whole office, that I have told so many people about them, including my primary physician! I NEVER have EVER recommended a dentist in my life, because frankly, who wants to recommend pain. LOL. But if you are in pain, THIS is the dentist to see. And even if you just want to get a check up or maybe teeth whitening – this is the dentist to see. Oh, and one last thought – they are up to date with the latest technology. If you need a crown for instances, there’s no waiting for two  weeks to get it and have to wear a temp, NO, they actually make your new crown right there in the office! How cool is that? If you’re up to it, you can even watch your crown being sculpted. Ok, maybe I went a bit over board on my enthusiasm for this dentist, but hey, I’m in my 50s and have never experienced the top professionalism I received from Dr. Taheri and his staff at May Dental. Oh, and another last thought — I don’t live in Santa Clarita anymore, but told Dr. Taheri that I would drive to Santa Clarita from where ever I lived, because the his care is well worth it. Thank you May Dental!

I’m a sensitive person and I have been searching for a thorough and sympathetic dentist to fix the chips on my front teeth. In the past I was always told veneers were the way to go but I couldn’t bear the thought of shaving my teeth to slap porcelain on top of them, not to mention the heavy cost associated with them. My teeth have never been perfect but I did not want to have small chips on my front teeth. I hoped I could a dentist that can find a way to even my front teeth out without having the burden of doing porcelain work. With the special bonding technique he was able to line up my teeth without removing any of tooth structure. My teeth look straight and they look so natural. Volla!! I am now obsessed with my teeth and show them off whenever I laugh. Thank you Dr. Taheri, amazing work and thanks Lisa for making my transformation so smooth. This place is not your cheap run down factory, the dentist takes pride in his work.

Let me start by saying I DO NOT normally leave reviews.   In this case, I was so impressed that I felt Dr. Taheri deserved to be acknowledged.  I previously left a positive review for Dr. Taheri but without notification Yelp deleted it.  I do hope that this time, Yelp will allow my review to remain published! Dr. Taheri is my Marcus Welby MD.  For those of you too young to remember … Marcus Welby MD was a show on television.  He was portrayed as a Doctor that always went the extra mile for his patients, cared deeply, and provided exceptional service and care.  Now of course, I always hoped to find a Dentist and a Doctor in real life that practiced with such integrity, expertise and caring.   Finally, I have been fortunate enough to locate Dr. Taheri who possesses all those qualities and so much more.   He is a professional, a perfectionist that takes his time, always confirming that you are comfortable and not in pain.  In my case, he created a bridge for me.  The bridge fits absolutely perfect, no pain or discomfort at all and the color match is true.  Lisa from his office, even provided a follow-up call to check that my bridge was comfortable and that I was satisified.  Wow! Dr. Taheri’s equipment is all top of the line.  There are no shortcuts or cheap material or equipment used here.   He is an artist in scuplting the perfect replacement crowns and bridge.  He in my book is one of a million…..and I am so glad to have found him by reading all the postive reviews in Yelp! If you are in need of dental work…..I highly recommend him.  You will not be dissapointed! Thank you Dr. Taheri!
