Overall Dr. Gregg is WONDERFUL!! His explaination of why they do not accept insurance is ok - they don't want you the patient to feel restricted to what the insurance company wants you to have done - but at the same time, when you're talking 1000's of dollars, it can be a determining factor.

Dr. Gregg has wonderful bedside manner - he is always attentive and gentle and will work through anything with his patients. Even after an extensive proceedure he called us at home on the weekend to see how my husband was feeling and to make sure everything was ok.

At times when there were dental emergencies - pain, chipped temproaray filling etc. he either squeezed us in first thing the next day or even came in over the weekend to help us out.

His office staff could leave more to be desired. His dental hygenist needs to constantly be reminded "suction" as she often lets her patients drown. Not a Dr. Gregg issue - but definatly would not come here to see the hygenist!!

They do submit your insurance paperwork for you, but they do not keep you informed of its progress, and after our 1st reimbursement payment was sent to the office, the office manager did not alert us to this and simply put it in our file as a "credit" - definatly did not ask us about this and had made the same recommendation with our 2nd reimbursement check from insurance. It has been made clear that since you have to pay everything upfront - and then wait for your insurance to reimburse you, that we did not want any more of our money being given to them as a credit on our account.

Again, Dr. Gregg is amazing and wonderful with his patients, however the office and other staff can indeed leave much to be desired!

My friend referred me to Dr. Gregg when I was in college when his practice was relatively new. He's always given me such great care that when I got married, I converted my husband to Dr. Gregg! Now my three kids go to him as well. It's always a pleasure to see him and his staff. I couldn't ask for a better dentist. Thanks for everything Dr. Gregg!

Great dentist. The first dentist I've ever been to and most likely the only one I'll go back to. Great chair side manners, I'm horribly afraid of needles and I had no problems at all. Painless and very friendly, I recommend him to anyone in the area.

Like everyone else, I dread that card in the mail telling me I have to make an appointment with the dentist. Dr. Gregg has made me change my mind about dentists. The ads in the paper advertised "Gentle Dentistry" and they actually do practice this. Dr. Gregg was very gentle on my sensitive gums and gave me some tips which have helped tremendously. Kudos to him for changing my mind about dentists!

This practice is also known as Gentle Family Dentistry.

Dr. Gregg has a wonderful "chair-side" manner and explains everything he's doing in easy to understand terms. I had a cyst on my gum and he cut it off and cauterized the area. I never felt a thing. There is a TV/VCR at each chair and a great selection of movies for young kids through teens (and even adults!) to distract you if you don't want to think about what's happening.
Everyone who works in this practice is so caring that I actually look forward to going!
My husband refuses to go to anyone else and will continue to go to Gaithersburg from Winchester, VA when we move. We've referred friends and family who have all been very happy with the service/treatment they received.

PROS: Least pain possible - VCRs to distract kids - VERY Caring professionals
CONS:

Dr. Gregg Taira saved me as an adult worried about my dental health. Before I ever saw him, my dental health had suffered from the stress and trauma I carried with me since I was a child when I had been sent to a rough and uncaring
