My Favorite Dentist

(58) General Dentistry
"My husband started seeing Dr.Macaulay a few years ago and I followed suit. Recently he retired and Dr.Yadav took over. He's great! Unfortunately, I don't have the best teeth (yay genetics!) and I've needed quite a bit of work. He's patient, caring, always checks in to make sure you are comfortable. Really sweet guy. And the office staff is great, too. Everyone is really friendly and kind. Nobody likes going to the dentist, but everyone here makes the experience as pleasant as humanly possible. Definitely recommend. :-)"
More
"Dr. Yadav did a great job making me feel comfortable. My teeth are cavity free and feel great. Dental hygienists Renae and Debbie were very careful to make the cleaning process as complete and pain free as possible."
More
"My experience with doctor Yadav and his staff has been exemplary. All procedures are well explained and performed with professional gentle attention. I am very pleased with their service and I highly recommend them."
More
"My overall experience was really good. Everyone in clinic is really friendly. Dr. Varun Yadav is my primary doctor and he is really great."
More
"Great & friendly doctor and staff."
More
"Love this dentist! I've been coming here for years and it was a really smooth transition when Dr. Yadav came in. Excellent customer service and kind staff all around. All the hygienists are wonderful! They give great tips on small things you can do to improve your dental/gum health. Definitely recommend!"
More
"I highly recommend anyone who wants to experience a friendly professional atmosphere and a great service. Dr. Yadav is a great dentist and a nice sweet person, you will not forget his smile! He is very honest about treatments that can help you. I was having issue with my teeth and I text him about it.  I got a immediate response and, a follow call later to see how I was doing. The dental cleaning done by Nhien is the best her work ethics is amazing.The care and the dedication she puts in her work is beautiful.I crave for her dental cleaning! The reception are full of nice people! Antoi..."

"This was my second visit here and everyone has been fabulous.  Very helpful, very accommodating of my crazy schedule, and my teeth feel so much better."
More
"I am terrified of going to dentists and I highly recommend "my favorite Dentist". The doctor explains everything extremely clearly and is very gentle."
More
"I could not recommend Dr V higher than I do. A few months back a tooth treated by other dentists had to be extracted. I was in terrible pain. He received me on a short notice, patiently explained my options and put in place a treatment plan (including an implant which was not possible in this office before). Since then I visited his office a couple of times. He is always making sure I am comfortable during procedures, he is very personable and his staff are the kindest I've seen. Also, I have to mention Debbie who has been my dental hygienist for years and who is doing an amazing job. Going..."

"Friendly doctor and friendly staff. Dr. Varun explains the conditions with teeth very nicely. Staff super cool with appointments and insurance stuff."
More
"These guys are super friendly, they feel more like family than a dentist. Making every appointment easy and entertaining. The place is very clean and well kept. The rooms have a tranquil feel and completely remove any stress that was had from getting dental work done. 100% reccomend to everyone!"
More
"Great dentist. Super friendly and great bed side manner. Would refer hom to anyone. Had a crown done here. I hate going to the dentist but he makes you feel very comfortable."
More
"I've been a patient of this office for over 15 years and I highly recommend it. The staff is so friendly and professional and they help keep my teeth healthy and bright! Dr. Yadav is very thorough and pleasant. I look forward to going to the dentist!"
More
"Dr. Yadav has been such an awesome caretaker for my teeth! He has done a fantastic job taking over for our prior family dentist. His chair side manor is wonderful and he's very enthusiastic whenever I come in for a visit. Looking forward to his expertise for my various and annoying dental issues!"
More
"We are new patients to Dr V. He took over when my previous dentist retired. After seeing my dentist for over 15 years, we were a little apprehensive about seeing someone new. However Dr V made it a very comfortable experience. He is very gentle, knowledgeable and efficient. The transition has been seamless and easy. I recommend him!"
More
"Since their transition, My Favorite Dentist has maintained an impressive level of transparency and respect towards their patients. While there are changes within the business, Dr. Yadav, the hygienist, and the receptionist have been nothing but kind, professional, and informative. It is quite a far drive for me, but I don't mind for such exceptional service. I am excited to continue being a patient and seeing the business grow and flourish."
More
"I highly recommend this office! Dr. Yadav and his staff were amazing during my first visit.I am extremely happy and highly recommend you pay them a visit if you're looking for an attentive, friendly, and professional dental office."
More
"Dr Yadav, made me feel comfortable and relaxed for my first dentist visit in years! His assistants did great with cleaning my teeth, his staff was professional and eased all my anxiety I had about insurance stuff. At the end of my visit Dr Yadav told me about the next steps and I look forward to visiting the office soon for all my oral health needs."

"Dennis Macaulay redrilled and refilled one of my cavities last year that was bothering me. I had gone to two other dentists before him and they could not fix that filling. Dennis Macaulay did such a great job on the filling and it no longer bothers me at all. He also does not do unnecessary fillings which is really important to me. The whole office is friendly, nice AND does really great meticulous work. I can't remember the names of the hygienists but I've had a couple different people and they were gentle, effective and knew their stuff! If you have a sensitive spot they really are carefu..."
More
"I've been coming here for years, tried other dentists and then come back.I have strong confidence in Dr MacAulay's skills. Also, I've noticed a number of times that he's done his best to control costs.Debbie is my hygienist and she's great."
More
"I really appreciate the warm, friendly staff at Dr. Macaulay's office.  When I show up for an appointment they see me right away, make sure to answer all my questions, and do a very professional, thorough job.  This week I had an appointment with Dr. Macaulay for a small filling and it was so interesting talking to him about his work.  He takes the time to explain why and how things are done.  It's clear he's been doing this for a long time and you are in very good hands with Dr. Macaulay and his staff."
More
"We have been visiting Dr Macaulay for the last two years. He is very skilled dentist and the whole organization is very professional."
More
"I have been coming here for quite a few years and have always been very satisfied with the treatment from Dr. Macaulay, Dorothy, and Debbie.  I see them every 6 months and actually enjoy going for my routine check up.Dr. Macaulay recently fixed my chipped front tooth and it looks amazing!!  They were very good about fitting me into the schedule.  The procedure was painless and took less than 30 minutes.  I'm very happy to have my smile back.  Thank you!"
More
"Dr. Macaulay has been my regular dentist for several years, but until recently, I had no need for any of his services besides regular cleaning.  But due to a recent experience, I am now extremely impressed by his technical skill, meticulous work, and his drive to stay current with latest developments in dental materials and procedures.While out of town some time ago, I chipped a front tooth, which apparently was difficult to fix -- a very narrow surface to attach the repair material to.  Another dentist (who came with recommendations from friends, so I don't believe he was incompetent) trie..."
More
"I decided to visit Dr. Macaulay's office after developing some pain in my tooth that was treated for a root canal by some other Dentist. I was not happy with my other dentist because she procrastinated tooth filling resulting into yet another 'potential' root canal. Dr. Macaulay did a series of X rays and understood the problem and went over the issues with me and described to me very patiently the steps I should take to address the potential root canal. It has been a great experience since then. I visited him thrice and everytime I have had a wonderful experience. Dr. Macaulay is a great d..."
More
"Dr. Macaulay is the best dentist I have been to in my life. He made a crown for me and everything was so smooth. Thank you Dr. Macaulay!"
More
"What a dentist!  Dr. Macaulay has terrific chair-side manner.  He's extremely gentle, professional, reassuring, and friendly.  His staff is outstanding.  Donna & Debbie, the hygienists, are super nice and do very thorough cleanings.  Dr. Macaulay won't ever scare you with exaggerated opinions of your teeth and related expensive procedures.  Instead, he's very conservative, always choosing to wait on treatments if possible.  Counter to Pratik K.'s review regarding billing problems, I and my family (my wife and two sons also see Dr. Macaulay) have never had billing problems.  Seamless.  We ch..."
More
"I want to write review for Doctor Macaulay for so long but I have so much to say about him I was not sure what I should write! He is very patient and calm, always answering all your questions! I like how he is (when explaining the treatment you need) giving you few options! I like how he always call me back when I have an emergency!But this is why I fall in love with him and his team... Years ago my little nephew has to have feeling done to his tooth... My sister panick and ask me to take her son to Doctor Macaulay... From the moment me and my nephew walk to this ofice somebody was "giving ..."

"I finally understand how anesthesia is supposed to be applied to the tooth/mouth area. The needle is supposed to be inserted slowly so the numbing agent in front of the needle has time to make the area in front of it numb so you don't feel pain. If the injections hurt when numbing the mouth then find a better dentist. Very meticulous, takes time to look at xrays and think. Not a high volume shop and not careless. Very good staff, all helpful with wonderful cheerful personalities. Businesses are successful because of the quality of the people running it. This business is no exception to othe..."

"One line summary - Best dentist in the bay area. I have lived in the east, peninsula and now the south, hard to beat Dr. M and his "D" team. My relationships with dentists are in line with Woody Allen's relationships with his girlfriends (young), Shaq with his weight regimen or any classic love-hate relationships. I would love to have perfect teeth, but hate the work that is involved in getting there. Before I met Dr M and his "D" team, Debbie (The Ultimate Hygienist), Donna and Dorothy (Dr M's wife as well the Front-office person), my gum-lines score were always deeper than our country's b..."

"I'm really sad that I can no longer come to Dr. Macaulay's office for my dental cleaning. I barely just found them maybe 2 years ago. The entire staff here is wonderful. Everyone is super nice and super friendly. They really take time with the cleanings and everything was pain free for me. I switched insurance providers and unfortunately, Dr. Macaulay is not one of the doctors that are in the preferred network. I am quite sad that I have to switch again!"
More
"I HAVE to apologize to Dorothy for the below review.  It was NOT Dorothy's fault in the billing, it was MetLife!  Our group number was changed and Dr. Macaulay's office was not notified.  Again, Dr. Macaulay is great along with his entire staff.  Dorothy was very paitent with me when I personally visited the office only to complain about my bill.Thanks Dorothy, thanks Dr. Macaulay.  I would recommend this office to anyone."
More
"This is by far the best experience I have had with any dentist.  I hardly felt anything when getting fillings done & Dr. Macaulay explained everything he was doing. He & his staff are very professional & friendly.  My husband & 9 year old daughter use the same dentist & we will keep seeing him even when we move out of Sunnyvale in a few months."
More
"Finding Dr. Macaulay (over 7 years ago) and his outstanding staff, was the best thing ever happen to me. He is the best dentist that I've worked with and he genuinely cares about his patients and his work. He provides the best dental service in Sunnyvale. It's a pleasure to call the office and talk to Dorothy to schedule an appointment. She is amazing to talk to, friendly , very helpful,and professional. Dawna (dent. assistant) - always friendly take the best care of me. Debbie ( Hygienists that I worked with) who give the most amazing cleaning with an" extra " pati..."

"This was my first visit to Dr. Macaulay and I can say that it was a positive experience. The staff was very friendly and genuine. I would definitely recommend this place to any of my friends."
More
"I became a patient of Dr. Macaulay in 2006. He had good reviews on internet and I decided to try it out. I don't regret. He offered me several treatment solutions that I haven't heard from the other dentists."
More
"Before moving here, I went to a family dentist for 18+ years - i.e. he was a member of the family!  Dr. Maccaulay and his staff are the closet I've come to re-creating the same type of atmostphere - informal yet professional and also a great sense of trust and care.  No pushy procedures, scheduling is great (I love the test message reminders) and they take care of all the insurance issues."
More
"Super super friendly staff and doctor. They are all really efficient and nice. I have spoken on the phone a couple of times with dorothy and she hooked me up with a good deal. I have been coming her for a couple of months now and even though its kind of a drive from san jose, it's totally worth it. Thanks guys! keep up the great work!"
More
"My first dental experience in this country back in 2006, was a nightmare, and I'm still recovering from that, but finding Dr. Macaulay (over a year ago) and his outstanding staff, was the best thing ever, when it comes to my dental care. He is by far, the best dentist (better than my life time family dentist from my own country - and I really liked him) that I've worked with and he genuinely cares about his patients.Coming from another dental office, where, almost every time I went in, I was seen by a different dentist (in spite of always requesting the same dentist), one of my top requirem..."

"Dennis is a great Dentist!  He did a crown on me last year.  Wonderful office."
More
"I found Dr. Macaulay on Yelp about a year ago, and with all his great reviews I decided to set up an appointment. My husband and I couldn't be happier with Dr. Macaulay and his staff. I have struggled for so many years with numerous dentists, never quite happy with the service or the quality of care. However, I knew after my first appointment I finally found a place I could feel comfortable. Dr. Macaulay is very caring, gentle, and very meticulous with his work. I highly recommend Dr. Macaulay to everyone!"

"Dr. Dennis is by far the best dentist I have ever been to, and as I've moved around a lot, I've had been exposed to several.Before we even get into the details of dentistry, I can start with rating the service. Everyone at the office is extremely pleasant. They've always remembered my name when I've visited and go out of their way to be friendly to me, though never in an intrusive or annoying way. I've never waited more than 5 minutes in the waiting room, and this is through 4 visits to his office.Now -- dentistry details. For those that don't like a painful dental experience, Dr. Dennis is..."

"If you're looking for a great dentist look no further. Dr. Macaulay and the staff in his office are terrific. They are helpful, thorough, and do a great job."

"A couple years ago Dr. Macauley was referred to me by my orthodontist who worked in close proximity to his office.  Dr. Macauley took care of a mis-aligned crown in just ten minutes.  My hubby and I have been seeing him ever since for regular dental check-ups and cleanings; his location in Sunnyvale is convenient to our jobs.  The dentist and his staff are so pleasant and efficient I have asked how much it would cost for me to come in for additional cleanings outside of my insurance plan!  I've always loved that smooth, polished and minty-fresh feeling after a check-up, ..."

"I would have to agree with other reviewers: this office is excellent. I only had a regular cleaning done, but they went into more thorough investigation to other issues that I brought up. I felt that my concerns were well addressed. I have recently started looking for a new dentist - my regular dentist is now too far out of the way since I moved - I will definitely be going here again. Highly recommended."

"Dr. Macaulay is definitely not the closest dentist to either my house or my work, but upon reading his stellar reviews on Yelp I decided to go to him. My last visit to a dentist was 4 years ago and my teeth today are as pristine as Berlin in 1945. On a fateful day in Oct 2009, a molar gave in to a piece of well cooked pork rib and cracked. Upon initial inspection, Dr. Mccaulay decided a root canal is unnecessary, so today I went in for a filling. Dr. Mccaulay and his competent and courteous assistant Donna met me in the room 2 minutes later and started the hour-long procedure.The local..."

"Dr. Macaulay and his staff are beyond fantastic! He was my first and only dentist, and he's been taking care of my teeth since I was a tiny tot. Dr. Macaulay is exceptionally gentle and is really great at calming your fears if you're a dentist-o-phobe! :) The staff are never anything but nice and helpful. I've referred many friends to his office and I've heard nothing but great things about their experiences as well. Getting my teeth cleaned and other procedures done are not exactly my idea of a good time, but Dr. Macaulay and his staff make even the toughest procedure as pleasant as i..."
More
"I made an appt with Dr. Macaulay based solely on Yelp reviews and I wasn't disappointed in the least! I left my previous dentist because although the dentist was excellent, I had to wait at least 30-45 minutes every time I went in for an appt. At Dr. Macaulay, I was greeted promptly and wasn't kept waiting at all. The hygienists were very friendly and caring. Dr. Macaulay was very friendly and, in contrast to other dentists I have seen, didn't pressure me to schedule unnecessary procedures (teeth whitening, replacing silver filings, etc.). I felt that he was being completely honest with me...."
More
"This man and his staff are just *fantastic*!My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Maculay for a few years now.  While I have good teeth, I cannot stand the sensation of cleanings, and my husband is extremely dental-pain intolerant, but Dr. Maculay always leaves us smiling and feeling good.He is considerate and amazingly gentle, and does not flinch away from telling you what you need done.  He has a no-nonsense, compassionate approach to all his procedures, and he actually LISTENS to your complaints and questions.  His staff, from the hygenist to the receptionist, are bet..."

"I got an  infection from an impacted wisdom tooth. From yelp I found Dr. Macaulay. This man is a god send. They  got me an appointment at 9:00 am the same day. Took xrays and referred me to an oral surgeon. However, he prescribed me antibiotics and pain killers before sending me home. The entire office was very welcoming and friendly. I'm terrified of dentists and they all showed compassion and took the time to make me comfortable! As a new customer I have to give Dr. Macaulay a 5 star review. He and his office treated me wonderfully."
More
"I read all the reviews for this wonderful caring dentist. I totally agree with the others who have written their glowing reports about him . I too had a problem and was referred to a dentist by a neighbor. It turned out he couldn't fix the problem and referred me to Dr. Macaulay. The problem by the way was to reset a capt! I went to this nice dentist who happily cemented it and examined the rest of my problem. Restoring upper and lower teeth. Grinding my lower teeth down from a bad upper bridge work had to be fixed. He explained about the work needed and it was a year later that I..."
More
"I was a little nervous about coming here because Dr. Macaulay was in the network of dentists on my super crummy insurance plan.  However, I was pleasantly surprised.  The hygienist is really great.  One of the best I've ever had.  Dr. Macaulay is a good dentist.  I've had a few fillings done and one of them was a redo of a bad filling.  It was too tricky for the last dentist to do properly and it's been bothering me for years.  The good doctor fixed it up for me very nicely.  Also, he takes time to talk to you at visits.  I've always fe..."
More
"Dr Dennis Macaulay is the best dentist I've ever been to, and if you saw my teeth, you would know that I have been to quite a few. Rotten to the core, no doubt about it. Dr Macaulay fixed them all up, so I no longer have any complaints. As an added bonus, he helped cut down my flossing time by 13.33% by having my wisdom teeth removed. How about that?!"
More
"I love Dr. Macaulay!!!!!!I was recommended to Dennis by a friend who knew I hated my current dentist.  A new dentist was the best thing I ever got from this friend!  I am so pleased.  Who knew going to the dentist didn't have to be absolute torture.Dr. Dennis Macaulay is the sweetest and most gentle dentist I've ever come across.  His staff is equally as pleasant - they are always so happy and welcoming.  Dr. Macaulay's office is almost like the 'Cheers' of dentistry... when you walk in, Dorothy (the receptionist), greets you by your first name and always asks how y..."

"Have to update my review!  Dr. MaCaulay has been dentist going on 8 years now.  I have problems with needing frequent fillings, and Dr. Macaulay always spots problems early on.  They also recommended and helped me through post-care of a gingival grafting.Super-friendly staff, gentle and competent service.  They use the latest technology in the field as far as filling and bonding materials, but most of the equipment is a little older.  I hear they're getting some new equipment soon -- cool!  The office is clean and recently remodeled (was it something I said?) a..."
