Patient Testimonials

Z.A. (Pasadena, CA)

Dr. Tarakji is one of the best oral surgeons I’ve been too. He’s genuinely smart and knows what he is doing. He makes good recommendations benefitting the patient always.  I felt comfortable and confident about the treatment I received for my teeth. I would highly recommend him.

I am a repeat patient of Dr. Matthew  A. Tarakji, DDS, Maxillofacial Surgeon.
I am writing this blog because Dr. Tarakji indeed is the best Dental Maxillofacial specialist that I was blessed to stumble upon. After he reviewed my medical history, he took all efforts to call my concerned doctors, explained and discuss his findings with me and execute the best treatment for my teeth and whole being. I went under his care with the least discomfort, with techniques he learned and developed I have never felt before, i.e. with minimum impact or smooth extraction compared with all of my previous dentist. My last extraction from another Dentist before, took a long time and I thought my head is going to explode. Doctor Tarakji continued on monitoring my blood pressure, I even relaxed during the process because of his competence and the trust he earned while extracting my tooth.

The previous graft Dr. Taraji performed on me in the past was so successful that even though I did proceed with the implant with another Dentist, all I heard from that dentist is accolade for the good work, for the healthy and infection free graft Dr. Tarakji performed.

The best thing I experience with all my best doctors are that they are all amiable, gentle, does their research, and  cares about their patients well being. I could tell in Dr. Tarakji’s demeanor that he shares the same attributes with all my best doctors. I believe this is not only innate in their nature,  but also indicative of how well they were nurtured and raised by their loving parents.

I was referred to Dr. Tarakji by my general dentist for wisdom teeth extraction.

Experience: Dr. Tarakji was very welcoming, friendly, and easy to talk to. He explained the entire process and made me feel at ease about the procedure. He was not pushy at all and allowed me to make my own decisions (decided to take all 4 of my wisdom teeth out and decided on nitrous oxide/ laughing gas vs general anesthesia). He made sure I was doing well during the entire procedure, asking if I could feel any pain and if I was doing okay. After the procedure was over and the laughing gas wore off, he checked in and discussed follow up care with me.

Follow-up: he called me the night of my procedure to see how I was doing! I didn’t pay for either of my follow up visits and both were quick and easy. He was very good at answering all the questions I had, and I never felt hesitant to ask the many questions that I did.

Office: the office staff are nice too and the location is easy to find. It’s located in the tall medical building on Hawthorne and 190th. Plenty of parking.

Overall: I had a good experience overall and I definitely recommend Dr. Tarakji! If you are not sure of which oral surgeon to choose, just call and ask for a free consult… I’m sure he’ll make a good impression.

I highly recommend Dr. Tarakji if you need an implant.  He made sure I understood the process, time and cost involved regarding implant placement.  The surgery was painless.  It feels like I have my real tooth back!

Dear Dr. Tarakji & Staff,

Thank you very much for taking very good care of our son.  You removed his wisdom teeth.  All 4 of them.  You were wonderful during and days following the surgery.  We appreciated you genuine care.

Dr Tarakji was very patient with all our questions and concerns before and after my daughter’s wisdom teeth surgery. He called to check up on her in the evening of the surgery.  The staff is very friendly and helpful.  I highly recommend Dr. Tarakji.
