Dr. Brain has been my children's dentist for over 12 yrs we stopped seeing him due to the complaints I heard from others and my children started to dread their dental appts. And asked to go back to their regular dentist.. that should go to show children love the environment the staff is always smiling and helpful Dr. Brain is patient and kind to the kids and we are always in and out in 20 minutes.. I don't understand where all the negativity stems from, but I will say my kids will continue to see him and his staff of hygienist as long as he is in business!!

This Guy is a TOTAL PSYCHO!!!!! If you take your child to him you are an ignorant TERRIBLE Parent!!! He is an OLD SENILE MAN who PREYS on CHILDREN. I am a 36 year old Mom who used to visit his office as a child. I am still TRAUMATIZED by the treatment I received at his office. Parents and children are not making this stuff up. STAY AWAY FROM THIS PSYCHO WAR VETERAN!!!!!!!!!!!

I am really surprised to read anything negative about Dr. Brain. I was recommended to him by my best friend who's son struggled at dentist appointments until he came to Dr. Brain. The office staff treats me with kindness ad respect. My son always fears a filling a little, but just smiled when he talked about Dr. Brain.

They do great education on amount of sugars in juices, ect. As a nurse, I am aware that the result of juice in baby bottles and bottles in bed is causing serious decay issues in children, so please be skeptical of the negative posts on this dentist. I suspect it is not the full story.

I am glad to take my son to him.

Dr. Brain is amazing. I have three children. My oldest has had major dental issues and is a chicken. My middle child has no issues and is strong. The youngest had major issues and goes back and forth between being strong and being a chicken. I have not had to put the oldest under for treatment since we started going to Dr. Brain. They all love him. I can't say enough great words about him, his staff, and the care my children receive. Contrary to what others have written regarding unnecessary treatment, my children have actually had less since we started going to him. My oldest two haven't had cavities in years. The youngest, who has bad teeth, has been able to get the treatment done in the office not in a hospital put under. In fact, he suggested that when we take our middle daughter to an ortho that we go to several to compare and to prevent any ortho Dr. from adding any unnecessary treatment to her plan. He's amazing. His staff is wonderful. My children are happy and not afraid of the dentist.

Worst human ever!
Prays on children and families in need, and charges the state insane amounts of money to mess up your childes smile for his/her childhood.
He did full on oral surgery on our child after he said he was just going to cap a couple problem teeth.
Then after the surgery told us that we must have really not taken care of his teeth because he needed them all done.

Dr. Brain is so friendly, he has a great smile, a smile of LIES!
Our little one year old (5 years ago) needed a dental check up, and so we pick Dr. Brain.
He was doing some looking around in his mouth when we were notified that he might need some fillings and caps, at one years old...
So we did as we were told and scheduled an appointment.
He wanted to put our son under so it would be easier for my son (I'm sure that wasn't the motive now).
After waiting in a hospital room for four hours, our son came out with a complete metal mouth. All molars had been capped and all teeth in the front were drilled. Yeah, I'm 100% positive our little boy didn't need a single tooth drilled let alone all of them. I'm sure the $80,000 he charged our insurance had something to do with it.
Come to find out this dirt bag does this to lots of children. Way too many. We just ran into a girl the other day with the exact same mouth as my son and we asked where did she go, and the answer was doctor Brain.
Well the only thing that smarts about Dr. Brain is the life long disappointment in myself for trusting this douche bag.

We just moved to the area and I was very nervous about finding a new dentistfor my son. Along with meeting a new dentist he also had his first cavity. He was very anxious about getting a filling, but Dr. Brain and his staff were amazing. They had him in and out in 15 minutes. Dr. Brain talked to him thru the entire procedure and kept him relaxed. When we left my son said it was fun! I would recommend him to anybody, he is GREAT with kids

Dr. Brain has been has been a miraculous fixture in our lives. He has been there when we needed him and has performed expert surgery on our small child. He has also managed to do this extensive work without trauma to her. We extend our gratitude to his staff at the office and hospital as well.

I remember 34+ years ago sitting in your dental chair. Driving to my appointment my mother assured me "you like going to Dr. Brains office) to calm my nerves, and when I arrived your staff always rememebered my name. (I know how important charts are.) After I was ushered back by your smiling nurse, you always made me feel like a rockstar. You may not know it, but your kindness, professionalism, good humor, good mood and courteous manner taught me a great deal about customer service and friendship. Hopefully I can make each person I come in contact with, even if for just a moment, feel like they are the most important person in the world. You made me feel like that. Thank you.

Most dentist will not or cannot handle children or adults with autism or other behavioral disabilities. Dr. Brain, on the other hand, has dedicated his practice to helping disabled kids.

If we lost Dr. Brain, children's dental care in Tacoma will suffer dramatically. I hope that one day people will retract the harmful reviews that have been unnecessarily generated.

I believe that Dr. George Brain has been grossly misrepresented. I have been taking my children (several who are disabled) to Dr. Brain for over 15 years. Some my children are autistic with server behavior issues. Dr. Brain is professional in every regard. I font believe he is capable of hurting a child. In fact, he is gentle to a fault and children are rarely traumatized by a visit to this caring dentist.

Some adults arent as lucky as my son. They carry phobias/fears of dentists to the point where their dental health is neglected for years. Dr. Brain deserves 100% credit for my sons beautiful smile! The reassurance Dr. Brain provided me cant be measured. I believe he is an outstanding credit to his profession.

Dr. Brain continued to reinforce positive experiences and excellent dental care for the next 12 years. Dr. Brains expertise as a childrens dentist is the sole reason my son overcame his fears and never felt any anxiety when it was time for the orthodontic work with Dr. Kochich and the continued excellent adult services received from Dr. OConnor.

Naturally, my son needed to have regular dental appointments as part of his childhood health care. I didnt know how Id ever find a dentist who would understand my over fearful child - who now had a very negative memory of his only encounter with a dentist.
A friend recommended Dr. Brain. I made the appointment and was pleased to discover my insurance coverage was not the primary concern of the receptionist. I promised my terrified 3 year old I would stay with him during the exam. The appointment began with a warm greeting from Dr. Brains office personnel. They were extremely understanding and cooperative when I apologetically explained why I needed to be part of the exam. Dr. Brain never blinked an eye when both mother and toddler were waiting for him. He was a magician! In less than five minutes my son was relaxed with Dr. Brains expertise and excellent understanding of treating apprehensive children. The exam was comprehensive from the point of excellent dental care, but more important; it resulted in a life-changing attitude about dental visits for a frightened little boy.

I personally had Dr. Brain as my dentist growing up and now have three boys who see him. Our three year old whom we adopted last year is very hard to manage, very anxious and hyperactive. I was amazed when he had a filling done in speedy time, and came out proud and smiling. I think that Dr. Brain is a very special Dentist!!

I am a 35 year old mother of two small children. I started as a patient of Dr. Brain when I was 4 or 5 and continued until I was 16. He was a fantastic dentist. I can remember being very frightened when I was new to his practice and I cried hysterically. He whispered so that I had to stop crying in order to hear him. (I trick I use today with my children... I works wonders.) I never cried in his office again.When my daughter turned 3 I noticed that one of her front teeth was gray/dull in appearance. It turns out she inherited very soft teeth from her dad and needed a lot of work done. I took her to Dr. Brain and they took good care of her too. I didn't have dental insurance, but they worked with me on a great payment plan.Dr. Brain is a wonderful, caring dentist. I highly recommend him.

I have 2 special needs children that see Dr Brain They were afraid of dentist. They went back there and the staff was gentle with them. Dr Brain was gentle too even when they put up a little fuss. When Dr Brain was done he called me back to explain what was done to them and how well they did. My daughter is being referred to a Orthadonist because she needs braces. He even answered any questions we had about our childs treatment. They even like how the get a new tooth brush dental floss and pick out of the treasure chest. I would reccommend him to anyone. Also if you have special need children he is good with them.

I went to Dr. Brain when I was a kid and now I take my two children to him. He has been nothing but nice to myself and family in the 30+ visits at his office. I have never seen him be rude to a child, even if they were acting up. He is very professional yet he can make my kids laugh. They love going to the dentist thanks to Dr. Brain!!!!

I read the reviews and even called my dentist to chat about Dr. Brain before I took my daughter in today. I will admit I went to the office with some anxiety, and I told the office staff about my concerns. I came away very impressed with the staff and the doctor who was very kind with my almost 3 yr old daughter. I will take my daughter back in 6 months for a cleaning and have no worries with Dr. Brain as her dentist. I didn't even have to ask to be allowed with my daughter in office while he examined her teeth. It's very open and he answered my questions regarding my daughters dental care. I would recommend him.

Okay first of all, I was a patient of Dr. Brains for many years approx 19 years and NOT ONCE DID HE EVERY TOUCH ME OR DO ANYTHING TO HURT ME! I would recommend him to anyone and I will bring my children to him. I felt very comfortable with him as my dentist. My siblings also had him and my nephews and not once did any of them complain about him doing anything to them. He is a great dentist and he make children feel comfortable. His staff is great too they are friendly and they will answer any question you throw at them to their best ability.

To those that read the other reviews please remember if your child does require fillings etc, the child, for his/her safety will need to be sedated.

I was amazed when he had a filling done in speedy time, and came out proud and smiling. I think that Dr. Brain is a very special Dentist!!

I took my 3 year old son to a well known and highly recommended children??s dentist. His fee matched his reputation. Luckily, I was able to respond to his receptionist??s biggest concern (what type of insurance coverage I carried) when I called to make the initial appointment. I was left with the impression that without the insurance, I would have had to look elsewhere.
My son was extremely timid and shy in any new situation ?? whether it was a ride at Disneyland or his first visit to the dentist. This initial trip proved to be a disaster and very traumatizing for both of us. I was told I had to stay in the waiting room during the examination as ??mothers just make the child more upset.? His fingers were literally pried and uncurled from my neck as he was carried to the exam room. He did not stop crying or calm down as predicted. By the time I realized I had the right to be with him during the exam, he was sick to his stomach and was not responding to the ??great dentist.? We left the office with the same healthy teeth he had when we entered, a lecture on behavior expectations, a pricey bill and no balloon.
Naturally, my son needed to have regular dental appointments as part of his childhood health care. I didn??t know how I??d ever find a dentist who would understand my over fearful child - who now had a very negative memory of his only encounter with a dentist.
A friend recommended Dr. Brain. I made the appointment and was pleased to discover my insurance coverage was not the primary concern of the receptionist. I promised my terrified 3 year old I would stay with him during the exam. The appointment began with a warm greeting from Dr. Brain??s office personnel. They were extremely understanding and cooperative when I apologetically explained why I needed to be part of the exam. Dr. Brain never blinked an eye when both mother and toddler were waiting for him. He was a magician! In less than five minutes my son was relaxed with Dr. Brain??s expertise and excellent understanding of treating apprehensive children. The exam was comprehensive from the point of excellent dental care, but more important; it resulted in a life-changing attitude about dental visits for a frightened little boy. Dr. Brain continued to reinforce positive experiences and excellent dental care for the next 12 years. Dr. Brain??s expertise as a children??s dentist is the sole reason my son overcame his fears and never felt any anxiety when it was time for the orthodontic work with Dr. Kochich and the continued excellent adult services received from Dr. O??Connor.
Some adults aren??t as lucky as my son. They carry phobias/fears of dentists to the point where their dental health is neglected for years. Dr. Brain deserves 100% credit for my son??s beautiful smile! The reassurance Dr. Brain provided me can??t be measured. I believe he is an outstanding credit to his profession.
Thousands of children and parents have been a part of Dr. Brain??s career. I??m sure I??m not alone when I applaud his outstanding work.
