Patient Testimonials

Had a good time - Pam G

At my last visit, I was impressed with the speed my cleaning was done. Hiring a new assistant and using the computer to record my info is really a time saver! Even though I had not forgotten my appointment, it was nice to receive a reminder text message from you. The dental appointment of which I am not overly fond usually, was pleasant, comfortable, and quick. I actually had a good time.

Pleasant, punctual and professional - Hart N

It was as usual a pleasant, punctual and professional appointment... from Fran to Lois to Dr. Maher.
I appreciated the thoroughness of Lois and the extra examination of my throat and mouth and the explanations of Dr. Maher.
It was as if David had never left... he sure has a great successor!

Comfortable and welcoming - Tracy J

Comfortable and welcoming family type atmosphere.

The best dentist I've ever been to - Anonymous

Dr. Maher is the best dentist I've ever been to. He is prompt and professional and above all kind.

The best experience that I have ever had with a dentist - Jim G

Dr. Maher filled a cavity today. My appointment was at 9:10. He took me right on time and the procedure took only twenty minutes. I left the office by 9:30. Moreover, it was painless. He has perfect numbing techniques so I felt absolutely no pain from the novicane injection. It was probably the best experience that I have ever had with a dentist.

Always enjoy - Joan M

Always enjoy you, glad Dr. Gabor found you to take the reins.

Everyone is very nice - Zachery K

On time, everyone is very nice, in and out which works for us. Dr. Maher is great, he answers questions and I trust his suggestions and inputs in regards to my kids teeth.

Friendly atmosphere - George D

Great people, latest technology in a friendly atmosphere.

Wonderful office, great experience - Anthony H

Wonderful office, great experience. Dr. Maher is a great dentist and wonderful person.

I highly recommend this office - Anonymous

I think his hygienist staff is highly skilled and all have a great, but professional, bedside manner. Dr. Maher is fantastic--he's supportive, friendly, a good listener, and most importantly, he knows his stuff. I feel very good about the care my family receives from his office--from my 85 year old father to my twenty-something kids. I like that he has been trying to update the office infrastructure. The new reminder system needs some tweaking, but I'm most grateful for the plentiful appointment reminder options. I highly recommend this office.

Dentist's office is nothing to be afraid of - Anonymous

Lois was so patient and kind to my two-year old during her first appointment. She was fussy and nervous but Lois took charge. Lois even sacrificed her back by cleaning and polishing my daughter's teeth while she was sitting up because that was how my daughter felt most comfortable. She showed her each instrument and how it worked and even let her do her own suctioning. Who knew the dentist's office could be fun?
Dr. Maher was sweet and kind. He gave her lots of praise and helped her feel confident and happy about her teeth. Great with kids.
Overall an excellent experience that will ensure the dentist's office is nothing to be afraid of for years to come.

Good dental work - Sandra C

Lois is super, Fran is amazing; she is a real asset to this practice. Dr. Maher is good on follow up, checking mouth for possible cancer or other problems. Sherry (a consultant? referred to Dr. as Dr. Mark. Puhleez! Patients are not kiddies.) Sitting at front desk tries a little too hard; let patients interact with Fran without inserting herself. Good dental work. Not necessarily better than J. Wong, Brookline, MA, but good. I definitely recommend M. Maher.

Pocket reading of nine may need to have that tooth pulled - Joe C

The pocket reading of nine may need to have that tooth pulled and have an implant inserted. Right now it is a bit sore fm being poked and if it continues I'll get in touch w/ you next week to asked a fix.

Great preventive care attention - Kathryn C

Excellent qualifications, personal attention, practical advice and great preventive care attention.

Wonderful job with no pain - Steve R

Your hygienist (sp?) did a wonderful job with no pain except the normal sore gums for a couple of hours after my visit. Fran you will be missed and enjoy your leisure time.

Very good dentist - Barbara B

Dr. Maher is a very good dentist and I have had many dentists in my 81 tears. A year ago, he installed a complicated 4 crown bridge.
It went very well. He strikes me as being very skillful. He also has a pleasing personality and uses state of the art equipment, digital X-rays, and 3 dimentional scans to construct crowns.

Friendly staff - Nikolai D

Friendly staff, clear explanations, great experience.

Friendly group - Ken J

What a friendly group! I really look forward to seeing the entire staff every six months.

Clearly explains your options - Ross A

He clearly explains your options and doesn't push any unnecessary procedures. Would recommend him to family and friends without any hesitation.

Most pleasant - Terri D

My recent experience at Dr Maher's office was most pleasant. I was anxious about having two teeth worked at the same time. The receptionist was very communicative and helped put me at ease and Dr Maher was excellent about explaining each step of what he was about to do and what I should expect to feel. It was reassuring to find people who showed a genuine concern for the patient. I would highly recommend Dr Maher.

Teeth cleaning went well - Steve L

On time, answered all questions, very clear communication of what needed to be done (and the costs involved). Teeth cleaning went well!

Absolutely fine - Sheila D

Absolutely fine...clear instructions, clear prognoses, pleasant experience all around.

Very professional - Steve L

Dr. Maher was very professional in his approach and treatment plan. He was able to prep the tooth, and make the crown in one visit.

My teeth have not looked this good - Brad M

Dr. Maher was able to save a cracked molar by putting on a crown. The crown was a perfect fit and completely blends in with the rest of my teeth.
Dr also noticed that I had a dark front tooth (from a childhood accident) that was getting darker through the years. Dr Maher suggested a root canal and internal bleaching would likely remove the darkness. In a couple of appointments the darkness was completely gone! My teeth have not looked this good in over thirty years.......

Very professional yet fun to work with - Peter A

Dr Maher and staff are very professional yet fun to work with!
He explained the recommended procedure to be done in a concise manner!

Fabulous dentist - Marcia M

Dr. Maher is a fabulous dentist. He is very conscientious and caring. You cannot find a more meticulous and cautious dr. in the bay area. My husband and I and all our referrals are very happy.

"Painless" Dentistry - Thomas S


All is well - Irene R

Dear Dr. Maher
It’s been a week now with my new teeth and I'm happy to say all is well and I don't even notice them. Thanks to all your meticulous planning. They are also nice and smooth a blessing to an inquisitive tongue. Thank you.
Your patient Irene Renkas
P.S. I never give 5 stars for anything as there is no perfection in life.

Dr. Maher and his staff are superb. They do a wonderful job and they are always so helpful to us.

Friendly staff, yet I questioned the competence level - Anonymous

I would like to say that my experience was disappointing. Friendly staff, yet I questioned the competence level. From the minute I got in the chair to do my x-rays, the dental assistant talked me into a frenzy about my personal life, residence, job title, etc. But could tortured my mouth, clueless of how to do x-rays so he called the dental hygienist in first, then the dentist. The dentist examed me and told me first the hygienist would so my cleaning, but then he would go ahead. Horrible cleaning, stated "I don't go heavy on the drill"...and when I got home...STAINS still visible...he didn't even scrape each tooth stating "you don't have much build up. Cheap talk, no walk! :-(

Almost as good as my regular hygienist - Jack K

You did almost as good as my regular hygienist, and I was pleased to meet Sharon and Dan.

Always been taken care of very well - Anonymous

Dr. Maher and his staff are wonderful. I have been coming here for 12 years (with Dr. Gabor), and have always been taken care of very well. I continue to recommend Dr. Maher to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Offer viable options - Thomas S

Helpful, reassuring, effective, immediate appointment, sufficient time to evaluate the problem and offer viable options.

Highly recommended!

Good job - Imre H

She did a good job. Thank you.

Friendly and caring - Ellen E

I feel fully confident in the skill and expertise that Dr. Maher and his staff provides our family. On top of that, his office is friendly and caring.

Able to fit despite a full schedule - Linda F

One of my Gold Crowns fell out. (I grind my teeth at night.) Dr. Maher was able to fit me in on the same day, despite a full schedule.

People enjoy working together - Caron H

Attention to detail, asks good questions, responded to my questions...people enjoy working together...the latest equipment, all upgraded to computer, X-rays show immediately on screen in examine room. Dr Maher will you consider running for President of the United States?

Dental procedure one could almost look forward to - John D

Mark and his staff make a dental procedure an event one could almost look forward to.

Enjoyed the background program - Richard I

Enjoyed the background program during the cleaning.

Quality of care is top-notch - Kathryn C

I drive 3 hours to get my dental care from Dr. Maher. The quality of care is top-notch. The staff is friendly and capable. The equipment is modern, and appointments are on-time. Can't recommend them highly enough.

Educational - Terri D

My last routine dental cleaning wasn't routine. It was actually educational which I appreciated. I'm not a flosser, so I expect the usual "you should floss" message. But this time, someone actually educated me on why I should floss. Showing me the tartar build up in the x-rays they took helped too. It was refreshing and it worked. I've been making a point of flossing more since my appointment!

Dr. Maher is a well-trained, experienced dentist - Richard F

Dr. Maher is a well-trained, experienced dentist. He runs a very modern practice with great support staff. I have had routine oral hygienist services, fillings, two "routine" crowns, and the oversight of an implant process through his practice (Dr. Maher diagnosed, recommended an implant specialist -- who did a great job --and then fitted me for the crown for the implant). I am very satisfied with his work. He is thorough, provides excellent explanations, and as important he is gentle.

Great experience - Alicia S

Great experience - thank you!

Visit went well - Joan B

My visit went well and appreciated the friendliness of the staff from Sharon, the receptionist to, Lois, the hygienist; sorry forgot the D.A.'s name; maybe David? (who was very nice and listened to my concerns regarding X-rays); and, of course, Dr. Maher. From my point of view would appear we have a long relationship to look forward to.

Very efficient and helpful - Nancy M

All staff are Great! Very efficient and helpful. They made me immediately comfortable with the decisions made re my care and took good care of me.

Staff is very friendly - Jackie L

The staff is very friendly and Doctor Maher is very thorough and knowledgeable. He explains what needs to be done in the mouth and how he is going to proceed with treatment.
The Hygienists are experts and after a visit with them it's like you have a new mouth.

Fun and pleasant experience -

The upshot of a successful office visit remains the professional aspect of all employees.
Dr. Mayer, Kathy, the hygenist, and the front office (Don't know her name, sorry) contribute mightily to this success.
All instill confidence and, additionally, make it a fun and pleasant experience.

Office visit was a pleasure - Anonymous

As usual - the office visit was a pleasure. The cleaning was done in on time, in a pleasant and professional way. Dr. Maher was helpful in providing future directions for dental care.

Highly recommend to all my friends and family - Steve K

Would recommend them to anyone seeking dental care - Judy F

My crowns make me feel regal - Jim T

my eye teeth see 20/20
my wisdom teeth tell me to come back
my crowns make me feel regal
my porcelain feels like Lladro
my smile shows my satisfaction

Fantastic experience - Jatinder S

Fantastic experience. Due to frequent moves due to school/work I have had a number of dentists over the years. Dr. Maher is easily in the top two, perhaps the best I've ever had. I like the small office and his personalized attention. I also like that he explains every step and can make a crown on premises. His office does not feel like a "mill." I also like that he explains all options available and gives his opinion, but ultimately let me choose the direction I wanted to go. Have recommended him to two friends already.

Always a pleasant experience - Florence L

Going to Dr. Maher's office is always a pleasant experience.

Great experience - Margie M

We had a great experience! Thank you for taking care of all of us so well!

Staff was friendly & welcoming - Julie K

I don't think I'll ever be a fan of going to the dentist, but the staff was friendly & welcoming. It felt like a safe place to be. I wouldn't bring a child there... no toys, no form of entertainment other than reading, and nothing fun to look at on the walls for children. Music would be nice to hear in the office or maybe a tv in the waiting area to take your mind off of being in a place you don't want to be in. Just a recommendation/constructive criticism.

Superb job - Marcia M

Lois did a superb job on my teeth. Dr. Maher and Sharon are wonderful. Glad to see Dan working there and learning.

Constant communication - Karla G

I have been uncomfortable going to the dentist ever since I had a bad experience 8 years ago. I switched to Dr Maher a couple of years ago and had to have a cap and a cavity filled. All of my trepidations were unwarranted. Most importantly, there was constant communication as to what the procedure had in store and how I was doing. He asked for my input and I walked away feeling great! I think that fear I once had is finally gone. Not only that, but his office is technologically up to date and I had ONE visit for the cap! He made it right in the office. I will definitely continue to see Dr Maher as my regular dentist.

Always available - very frank and honest - David K

Always available - very frank and honest about what procedures should or should not be done. It's always nice to know someone is there when you need them and you can trust their opinion!

WELL DONE. Keep up the good work.

Does a great job - Sandra C

Lois is wonderful. Does a great job.
Woman at front desk--new Fran?--has settled down a lot and is much easier to take early in the a.m. She's really nice, but is very energetic! For non-morning people, that can be discomfiting. Glad she's calming down. Nice and seems competent.
Like the thoroughness of Dr. Maher's part of the visit. I feel confident that he is actually on alert to any changes or issues that could be problematic.
Lots of new toys--er,--technology.

The office is very friendly and also very professional - Phyllis L

I had never been to Dr. Maher before but when I called regarding a toothache they got me in the same day. The receptionist even called to get my X-rays from a previous doctor, and they cleaned my teeth the same day too. The office is very friendly and also very professional. I will definitely continue to have them do all of my dental work!

The Dental office was very clean - Anonymous

It was my first visit and I was very pleasantly surprised. The Dental office was very clean which you would expect but is not always delivered. All staff including the receptionist and Dr Mayer himself was very friendly. I did not feel under pressure to have any work done but trusted the information I was given. I had a filling replaced on my front tooth and am extremely pleased with the outcome.

Mark and his entire staff were wonderful - Michael W

Mark and his entire staff were wonderful. They didn't give me a guilt trip for not having been to the dentist in over two years, they explained every procedure, tool, etc as they used it, which made me more comfortable. My kids also loved coming here, as they got stickers. What more could you ask for?

Very happy with Dr. Maher and staff - Cassius B

Hygienist was very instructive - Sheila D

Hygienist was very instructive. She seemed to be doing a very good and thorough job. She was pleasant and made the experience a breeze.
However, I was surprised and taken aback when leaving to be asked for payment. In the 15+ years as a patient in your office (going back to Dr. Gabor) I have NEVER questioned a bill, nor have I been late with a payment, nor have I neglected to pay a bill. My payment record is beyond reproach. I would say lighten up with your fast-pay people and continue to request payment from your slow pay or no-pay patients.
Other than that, I am very happy with everything and everyone else!!

Very professional and personable - Chris L

Very pleased with Dr. Maher and his office staff. Very professional and personable.

Suited for dental patients of all ages and all dental needs - Steven S

This is the kind of dental office, complete with a Staff, that is right up my alley. One year ago my former dentist of 37 years retired and I was looking for that kind of family treatment. e.e, they treat you like family and become part of theirs. Sure found it there with Dr. Maher and his team, and I knew it would have that family vibe from my first phone conversation making my first appointment, and I made another appointment before walking out from the first appt!!
This is a ten! Suited for dental patients of all ages for any and all dental needs!
I am Steve, and I expect to go into old age without changing dentists again. I'll be a lifer with the goal of 38 years when I'm done. Thank you to the wonderful friend and neighbor who referred me.

Clients feel so much at home - Jim C

It's been decades that I have been sitting in those chairs on San Miguel and I thank god that my initial visit was with Dr. Gabor. He restored my faith in the dental health world by putting a healthy smile on my face in my heart. When he retired I was pretty sure that the calibre of dentistry I received could not be attained. WELL ,,, once again he was stellar in relinquishing his practice to an amazing DDS Mark Maher and his staff. Your receptionist Sharon is a pleasure to talk to and assists in every way she can. Mindy has cleaned my teeth with professional techniques and concern for my dental well being as anyone could want. All of your technicians make your clients feel so much at home ...Thanks to all of you!

Right choice of dentist - Judith H

My husband and I made our initial visit last week. The experience was excellent. All of the staff was very professional and friendly. We are very satisfied that we made the right choice of dentist.

Work has been more than satisfactory - Joyce M

I loved the service at your office. It was a joy to meet the staff and feel so comfortable. Dr. Maher's work has been more than satisfactory. No problems afterward at all.

Another great experience at Dr. Maher's office! My veneers got extra gentle care during cleaning; my teeth felt shiny and smooth; my spirits were lifted after a lovely conversation with the staff.

Staff was very accommodating - I was late due to traffic and they welcomed me with smiles. Jessica did my teeth cleaning - she was wonderful!

An Educational Cleaning - Terri M., El Sobrante, CA

My last routine dental cleaning wasn't routine. It was actually educational, which I appreciated. I'm not a flosser, so I expect the usual "you should floss" message. But this time, someone actually educated me on why I should floss. Showing me the tartar build up in the x-rays they took helped too. It was refreshing and it worked. I've been making a point of flossing more since my appointment!

Semi-Annual Teeth Cleaning, John D., Walnut Creek, CA

Mark and his staff make a dental procedure an event one could almost look forward to.

The staff as well as Dr. Maher himself deserve the highest marks for a great dental visit! They are always on time and make you feel so much like a member of their family.
