Patient reviews on third party sites such as RateMDs or Yelp can give
valuable feedback about dentists and dental practices. At Tappuni Dental,
we use this public feedback together with private feedback from our
patients to continuously improve our practice and maintain our patient focus.
Tappuni Dental, which opened its doors in 2011, has a few reviews
and RateMDs. We are very grateful for the positive feedback from our patients.
Before opening her own practice, Dr. Tappuni worked as a dentist in the San
Francisco Bay Area, during which time she received many reviews from her
patients at Family Dental
in Foster City. Family Dental is a practice with a team of over a dozen
dentists - making it a great place to interact with and learn from other
dentists, but challenging to locate the reviews that specifically pertain to Dr. Tappuni. We have extracted the Demand
Force reviews (typos and all) that specifically mention Dr. Tappuni
and reprinted them below for your convenience. Enjoy!

Family Dental is a wonderful dental office. It has a comfortable atmosphere
and the staff there is very friendly and welcoming. They also have great
business hours. My two favorite dentists are Dr. Hall and Dr. Tapunni.

“extraction & filling”
Dr. Tara Tapuni is a talented dentist when it comes to filings and extractions. I rarely if ever have any discomfort after either. I have recommended Dr. Tara as well as Family Dental several times.

“Excellent, sensitive, and highest professionalism of Dr. Tappuni especially and your staff likewise”
I continue to be very happy and impressed with my experience and treatment by the Dr. and staff of Family Dental!
Every time I come here, I have the best experience someone at a Dentist can expect. In fact, I'm not even afraid of going to the Dentist anymore because of Family Dental and Dr. Tappuni.

I come frequently for cleanings as I drink tea which produces much staining. Dr. Tappuni pays such attention to detail in order to remove all of my stains.
From my first visit 6 weeks ago till now I have had a very pleasant experience. All appointments have been on time and very little waiting. Dr. Tappuni has mad skills when it comes to her professional expertise in dental. She always has a smile and is very gentle. A++++ service and professionalism. Highly recommended.

information about my teeth thru visual aides, (pictures) She was very honest
and I appreciate that. My husband is will also come here. I really love my

“Having a Cap installed”
If you can enjoy haveing a cap placed, i did. Dr. Tappuni was skilled in her practical application of mounting the cap, and, she took the time to make sure everything fit perfectly and that I was happy with the result. I should not leave out that Dr. Javidan did the initial root canal with skill and understanding (I was a bit nervous). Very good experience.
johns, foster city
thanks to Dr. Tara Tapuni!
anna-angelical, Mountain View
I enjoy my visit and really like Tara. She is always so caring. I love the way
she cares for my gums and teeth. She's the reason I come to Family Dental.
joanl Foster City
Dr. Tappuni has been my dentist for a
couple of years now and I could not be happier. Granted, I have not needed to
have a huge amount of work done in my mouth, but everything that she has done
has been problem free. She is also really nice, such that I actually look
forward to going to the dentist.
“Excellent service from a very caring staff”
The staff of Family Dental in Foster City is
always very friendly. My dentist, Dr. Tappuni, has provided very gentle care
and an excellent dental experience. I had a wisdom tooth pulled yesterday and
barely notice it today!
I appreciate not only the wide range of dental specialties all under one roof ("...one stop shopping"), but also that the practice remains current with all of the latest technology. At the end of the day, however, it is one's relationship with their respective dentist that defines the experience. Tara Tappuni is the consumate professional...and very patient with my many questions. (You've noted by name below as "d. bruces" - not certain who that is...but I'm D. Bruce Shelton.)

“What a Great Place”
I think this is such a wonderful place. The receptionist was super sweet and she could tell I was tired and offered me water. Dr. Tappuni is always so gentle with me since she knows I am scared of the dentist and she pays extra attention to me.
tarad, Redwood City
Tara Tappuni is an excellent professional
mikhailg, Foster City
Best dental service I have had in over 30 yrs!!! Everything met my expectations - Dr Tappuni is so incredible, I made my wife switch dentists! Now, we actually enjoy going to the dentist :o).
“Consistently friendly, professional and gentle”
Both my husband and I have switched to Family Dental. The staff is incredibly
friendly, professional and gentle. In particular, we're both very impressed
with Dr. Tappuni who always remembers our previous conversation and is a
genuinely caring person. Neither my husband nor I have ever had to wait to
been seen and really appreciate the email reminders rather than postcards and
phone calls. FD has state of the art equipment, a clean, bright and relaxing
atmosphere. Also, it's nice to be distracted by your own personal television.
“Family Dental is great”
I had a great experience overall and my 5 year old san loves it too.Thank you Tara.
“Great Dentist and Great Facilities”
Tara Tappuni DDS is the very best!
I was a New Kid in Town fresh from LA looking for a trustworthy dentist to
help me with basic cosmetic dentistry. Through some other medical
professional I obtained the name of Dr. Tara Tappuni. First she LISTENED to
what I wanted, then she INFORMED me about my options then we DISCUSSED the
possibilities then she gave me her RECOMMENDATION. Of particular significance
was that she was realistic in picking out the color "shade" of my "new teeth"
so that they looked whiter and healthier but not so white that they looked
like they were glowing in the dark. I also came to her with some serious
medical baggage which concerned me and she followed up so methodically with my
former physicians that when she commenced the dental work I was 100% confident
in her abilities. The cosmetic result seems to be excellent but then a few
weeks later I needed unrelated fairly routine dental work performed and I
decided to trust her with it. Candidly, I thought she was too nice and too
focused on the cosmetic aspects of dentistry to be an excellent day-to-day
dentist but I was wrong --- she is just that thorough and compassionate ---
and her dental work was painless and successful. I have referred several
people to her and each has thanked me profusely. They take all types of
insurance and her staff does all the paperwork for you making it virtually
