I was not able to go to a dentist in over 3 years, my husband and I saw Dr. Prat recently and he was able to ease us back into treatment. He has some high tech camera and digital x-rays that allows you to see what work we needed. His dental assistant did not speak much but had a gentle touch and a pleasant smile. Overall an excellent professional experience. Considering that he is undergoing some remodeling, Dr Prat and his staff where worth while to go to.
I've been going here for the past two years, and for someone who has dental anxiety, they've been really good to me. They take their time, explain everything, and plus I get to watch movies. I really like the staff too. They always have a smile on their faces. Looking forward to my six month check up. : )
Had an emergency and immediately they were able to squeeze me in. The receptionist was awesome and helped expedite things by pre-verifying my insurance before my appointment. She was able to tell me my co-payment accurately so that was there was no surprises when i left the office. I love that they were chart-less and the x-rays are digital. they definitely need to remodel the place, but I believe that is in the works. Other than that, the staff had great hospitality and solved my problem painlessly.
I have always found Dr. Prat and his associates professional, friendly and caring. The staff has always fitted me in when I had an emergency and very helpful about unexpected changes in my scheduled appointments.
The new treatment suites are state of the art, calming and very nicely appointed for patient comfort. Dr. Prat choose an open suite floor plan rather than closed rooms which I like as it's very airy and light. All you need do is ask for a private consultation and you will be accommodated.
I never found the treatment rooms to be anything but acceptably clean. Yes, the offices were becoming very worn and tired, but for a reason. Piedmont Ave is a protected historic district and it has taken many years for Dr. Prat to receive approval to renovate from the committee. As a business person I can understand why Dr. Prat would make do as long as possible. It's disingenuous to complain about prices and expect him to spend money on carpets that are to be removed. Had you bothered to ask he would have cheerfully explained his plans to upgrade and expand. Even so, The Dental Touch has been digital for a number of years and was not lacking in state of the art equipment or treatment options. It is completely up-to-date esthetically now as well.
I have been a patient at the Dental Touch since 1998 and haven't had any issues. Dr. Prat has always presented me with detailed printed treatment plan and costs and explained in detail what was required and options. I originally went to The Dental Touch as it was in my PPO network and nearby my workplace.
Our previous dentist was like dentist to the stars. They cost a fortune and were always trying to get us to bleach our teeth and buy overpriced fancy toothbrushes. We switched to the Dental Touch several years ago because they were less expensive and not so much into marketing.
I am impressed by how extremely nice, knowledgeable and professional the entire staff are.
I've been treated by four different dentists at the Dental Touch, and they have all been very competent and thorough. They take time to show me photos of my teeth and explain what's going on, which I appreciate. Dr. Pratt recently did an excellent job of putting a crown on one of my teeth. It looks and feels great! He also took the trouble to show me how to floss properly, which no one has ever really done before.
