Meet Dr. Tau

Philadelphia Dentist

Leonard F. Tau, DMD

Dr. Leonard Tau has practiced dentistry since 1999. Dentistry is in his DNA, as his father had a home office in New City, NY, where Dr. Tau grew up. He is a graduate of Tufts University School of Dental Medicine in Boston, Massachusetts, where he received his DMD degree. Dr. Tau next continued his education by attending an Advanced Education of General Dentistry at UMDNJ in Somerdale, NJ. Dr. Tau always wanted to own his own practice, but decided to first hone his skills at a group practice in Lansdale, PA for 5 years before establishing the Pennsylvania Center for Dental Excellence in March, 2007 in Northeast Philadelphia.

Dr. Tau’s focus is on general, cosmetic, implant and reconstructive dentistry. He is certified in Invisalign®, which are virtually invisible aligners that move your teeth. After more than 18 years in dentistry, Dr. Tau remains passionate about offering patients the latest in technology, which you will notice upon entering the office. Above all, Dr. Tau’s primary focus is patient comfort through painless dentistry.

Dr. Leonard Tau was honored to be recently chosen as one of Philadelphia’s Top Dentists by his peers in Philadelphia Magazine. What sets his Northeast Philadelphia dental office apart from other Philadelphia dentists is the time he takes with each individual to understand their needs and goals. Dr. Tau’s restorative practice provides services which include filling replacement with non-metal alternatives and a full range of cosmetic treatments. The cosmetic procedures include: KoR® Deep Bleaching, cosmetic bonding, porcelain veneers, implant dentistry and same day non-metal crowns and bridges with CEREC.
