Dr George Ambus, DDSThe weirdest appointment of my life
The weirdest appointment of my life. On my end, prior to the appointment, I had the X-rays sent, filled out his gobs of paperwork and sent someone my insurance information. I then chased them around asking if they’d gotten everything and they asked me to resend EVERYTHING and then finally made my appointment early as hell 9:30am on Saturday. I came in only to be bombarded in the chair with Dr George Ambus’s questions (like which teeth had the cavities? I can’t see an internal cavity! how many did you say there were? Four, for the millionth time they told me four!).
Dr George Ambus showed me paper print outs of my almost brand new X-rays and said they aren’t clear. Maybe use a computer to look at them since they were sent as high quality images?! Dr. George Ambus continued to ask me questions about my X-rays, I’m not a dentist, why would I know any of these answers? Coming in for a cavity filling should be routine. Dr Ambus said that this was a “consultation”, (imo weird and uncomfortable non productive consultation) and that his office would connect with my old office (like they should have already done prior to my FIRST VISIT) late next week and then call me. Okay, tolerable,
clearly you’re gonna wait another week cuz I’m not a priority but fine. Shit hit the fan when as I was out the door with no work done at all, he said “Hey but if we don’t call you, you call us okay?” Um no. Don’t worry you won’t see me again, quack. Still can’t shake the awkwardness of that appointment, what a horrible experience. He called me and blamed his support staff after I left a message saying that I will not be back in so don’t bother doing whatever it was you claimed you do before my second trip over.
Pro tip: How about don’t schedule new patients you are not at all ready for cuz you’re just gonna freak them out?! None of it makes any sense. This was all so unprofessional. Left with nothing done and no plans to ever return. What a colossal waste of my time. Anyone know a good dentist?!Maybe I had too high of hopes, I did my research and was willing to deal with a lot to get the appointment. I’m literally envious of the other user’s experiences here since they all seem to be the complete and utter opposite of mine.

Dr George Ambus is legit
Dr George Ambus is legit. His Yelp is filled with so many five star reviews Yelp has to refresh it everyday. The idiot who is calling him a dirty scam made a made take during the appointment and is probably broke because this person cannot afford to go to another good dentist.
I have been going to Dr. Ambus for 25 years and needless to say that besides the fact that he is professional and has a high degree of integrity, he is also a very sincere person.
After going to several dentists in the San Francisco area we were referred to Dr. Ambus.
After going to several dentists in the San Francisco area we were referred to Dr. Ambus. I was pleased with his ability to convey in layman’s terms what the situation was with my teeth and gums. He explained clearly what was occurring, what was causing the different issues and his recommendations as to how to repair deficiencies.
He actually let me look in a mirror as he showed me the different things that needed to be addressed with my teeth. I felt like I understood not only what needed to be but also why and also what would happen if I chose to not repair some of the different things going on. I felt very well informed and able to make the best decisions on the order in which to proceed with my dental healtcare.
My son recommended this office and I'm so glad he did.
My son recommended this office and I’m so glad he did. I had developed a sudden infection and had to see a dentist urgently. This office was able to fit me in right away, the front desk and scheduler were great.
Dr. Ambus was super kind and careful with my problem which he solved in a matter of a couple days. The follow up appointment was very pleasant and in all, I think I’ve found my new dentist. I highly recommend this office…and the extra bonus: plenty of free parking for patients
Dr. Ambose and his staff are by far the best dental office I've found in the bay area.
Dr. Ambose and his staff are by far the best dental office I’ve found in the bay area. They are very prompt to work you into the schedule of your in pain. Unlike the three other dentists I’ve fired this year doctor Ambrose doesn’t seem like hes trying to fuck me and my insurance over I legitimately think he cares I would give there practice 6 stars if I could
they create appreciable friendly atmosphere.
Defiantly i suggests my friends and everybody, Dr. George Ambus’s professional dental job. Moreover, along with great efforts that he and his team put for patients, they create appreciable friendly atmosphere.
