First, I am afraid of the dentist and this is the first dentist in 20 years that I haven't been afraid of. The first visit was with the hygienist for a cleaning. I think her name was Karen and she was very nice and gentle. Dr. Katz came in to check my teeth and everything looked good. Then about a week after my visit, I fell and chipped a tooth. The front desk girl got me scheduled right away with Dr. Katz and He did a great job with my front tooth. My husband says he can hardly tell. Thank you Dr. Katz. You are a rockstar dentist!
My daugther hearts Dr. Katz office and she is always happy to go. She was afraid of the first dentist she saw when we lived in Duluth but since we started going to Dr. Katz, she is just fine. My husband is a business guy with no time for anything and somehow the front desk person gets him in every 6 months. We had some insurance problems when we first moved to the twin cities with our daugther being covered but the front desk person worked it out with our insurance and everything since that has gone really smooth. Okay, my whole family hearts Dr. Katz office.
Pros: great place
I just want to say thank you to Dr. Katz for taking such good care of my elderly parents over the years. My mom has been in and out of the hospital for many months now and Katie at the front office has been great about scheduling and Dr. Katz has just been a god send. He has taken such great care of her from the filling she needed last year to the extraction that he just completed for her last week. And then there is Dad. Dad is 94 and thinks Dr. Katz is just swell. He has been going to Dr. Katz for many years now and it really helps that Dr. Katz can deal with an aging man that may be a little grumpy most days. My dad is always smiling and uplifted when he comes out of his appointments with Dr. Katz. There is a bond between them. Dr. Katz seems to be great with all the patients I have met in the lobby while waiting for my parents during their appointments. Also mom and dad just adore Katie at the front. She seems busy all the time but when you come up to her she is always forced on you and makes you feel important. She is a good worker, I can tell.
Just a thank you to our great family dentist,
I give Dr. Katz the highest rating. I have been going to his practice for 8 years and only stopped because I moved out of the state. It is going to be a challenge to find this kind of care in my new home city! The staff is always friendly, they always do a stellar job on the cleaning, and I am always especially impressed by their remembering of all the little details in their patient's lives, having babies, changing jobs, etc. I have recommended all my friends to them as they are impressive is all areas!
Pros: Best Dentist
Dr. Katz and staff are friendly and caring professionals. Dr. Katz is extremely competent, meticulous, and skilled in dentistry and patient care. Over the years I have had fillings, crowns and cleanings. All done without problems or stress. This includes work done for my hubby and children. I would recommend Dr. Katz based on successful treatment, advanced,clean and comfortable facilities,smart and well -trained staff, and a philosophy that pays attention to detail from the top all the way down.
Dr. Katz did a filling for me last week, it was done well. He is a professional and honest dentist. During the procedures, I didn't feel pain and it was a success. The facilities is clean and the staff are really nice. I like to recommend Dr. Katz to my friends. My partner and I have been very happy going to him for many years now.
Pros: great customer service
Dr. Katz is a great dentist. He is professsional and caring. When I am in his chair I feel I am the only one on his mind. He is charismatic and trustworthy. He has me his patient of 10 years in mind. We have a great patient/Dr. relationship. I see him around town ever so often and He and his wife Karen who is my hygienist are such nice people. They are a lovely team. I believe he has two other hygienists as well however I have only seen Karen for my cleanings. She is a great hygienist. My teeth always feel so clean after my cleanings. I don't want to even eat after, that is how clean my teeth feel after a good cleaning from Karen. Dr. Katz has done a few crowns and fillings for me. It was painless and he was great about explaining everything that went along with the treatment from what he was doing to the cost/insurance. The front desk has changed a little over the past 10 years I have seen Dr. Katz however the girl they have now (i think her name is Kathy or Katie) is really nice, smily, great at greeting people when they come in and always willing to help with any questions I have. She is a great addition to Dr. Katz's office. If you are looking for great dental care I would make an appointment with the doctor and staff I have trusted for 10 years now. :)
Pros: The best dentist I have ever seen
I have been to other dentists and have always come back to Dr. Katz . In the last two years I have stayed with Dr. Katz and have had 2 crowns done by him and had him fix 2 other crowns done years ago by other dentists. I am so glad that there is someone like Dr. Katz in this world to fix the dental problems that I have. My wife and I have always had good luck with Dr. Katz and his staff. There has been a few times that I have not wanted to come to the dentist but with Dr. Katz I don't mind coming to the dentist. The girl up front makes me feel at home and then Mary his assistant comes to get me and Dr. Katz comes quickly in the room and then the treatment and then I am out the door. The front desk girl takes care of the rest with insurance and I just wait to get the bill from their office. I am glad that my wife decided that we should just stick with Dr. Katz. Wife, you were right on this one. However if anyone knows a good MD let me know.
Pros: good dentist
I was extremely fearful of going to the dentist and put it off until I was in alot of pain. His office manager was able to get me in the same day when I called with a toothache. Dr. Katz explained everything to me and he got me out of pain with such a gentle and light touch! I will not be afraid to go back for my follow up appointments.
Pros: Dr Katz was very patient and caring with me.
Dr. Katz has been my dentist for years now. He is a great dentist. His office is nice and the staff is friendly. I am glad I found a great dentist to go to.
Dr. Katz has been my dentists for many years and I highly recommend him to anyone looking for friendly, high quality service in a family business atmosphere. Dr. Katz has the most gentle touch of any dentist in the area and really takes his time to make sure every patient gets the attention they deserve. He also has the most reasonably priced services and he accepts most types of employer provided insurance. Dr. Katz is the best!
Pros: Dr. Katz is personable and friendly
I just got my teeth cleaned today. My teeth feel super clean and I don't have to come back for another 6 months. Great dental visit. I love the local feel of Dr. Katz office and they are always so fun and cheerful when I come to get my teeth cleaned.
Pros: Best teeth cleaning in town
Great Dentist. That is all that needs to be said.
Pros: Dr. Katz
I do not recommend visiting Dr. Katz. He walked into the room, did not introduce himself, and started digging around in my mouth without so much as a greeting. He only spoke to the hygienist except to tell me that I had 5 cavities and needed to floss. Since I floss almost everyday, I got a second opinion from a well respected dentist who said I needed 3 fillings. Not great, but at least I won't be getting 2 unnecessary and expensive fillings. Maybe he's fine for some people, but if you're at all fearful or like a friendly, personal experience...go somewhere else!
Pros: Convienent with friendly hygienists
Cons: Unprofessional dentist
I would recommend Dr. Katz to everyone that is looking for a quality dentist. Dr. Katz is a great dentist and the staff is always professional and cheerful. I have always had a good experience when going to this dental office. I know the office takes most kinds of insurance. The office is located right behind Erik?s bike shop on Texas Ave in St. Louis Park, MN.
Pros: One of the best dentist in the metro area
Cons: if you have to see a dentist why not a good one
