I just got back from my second visit with Dr. Pulkrabek and his team at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, and I’m still blown away. They’re so brilliant, considerate, and on time. Best of all, they really know what they’re doing! Dr. Pulkrabek made sure his work looked flawless and that I liked it all while making sure I was comfortable during the procedure. They are now my new dental service provider, and I hope to keep going for years!
I strongly recommend Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ, especially Dr. Pulkrabek! I chose this dental practice because they had so many great reviews, and they were so on point! From the front desk to the exam room (receptionists, dental assistants and Dr. Pulkrabek), everyone was nice and competent. Dr. Pulkrabek carefully watched the work his assistant did and thoroughly and clearly answered my questions. He was also very hospitable and went the extra mile. It was a fantastic experience!
Dr. Pulkrabek did an amazing job redoing my teeth - it was painless and executed perfectly! They look absolutely incredible, and I’m so glad I can say Dr. Pulkrabek did it all! The staff at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ are rock stars, and I think everyone needs to go to them as a patient at least once to experience it for themselves. As usual, Dr. Pulkrabek did a great job and made sure I had the best dental experience. Try them out once, and you’ll be a patient for life! At this office, dentistry is an experience. I will always recommend him to my family and friends. Thanks for keeping my smile beautiful, Dr. Pulkrabek.
Everyone at Family & Cosmetic Dental is intelligent and warm. I’ve had everything from cleanings and cavities filled to cosmetic dentistry work done by Dr. Pulkrabek and his incredible team. They always treat me like family, and they always make sure I’m relaxed during procedures. Of course, they also make sure I love the results. My fiance also goes to their Phoenix location and has also had a great experience there. The office is spotless, and parking is hassle free. I highly recommend them to everyone!
Dr. Pulkrabek and his staff took care of me today at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ, and I was so thankful for their service. Dr. Pulkrabek was very patient with me and answered all my questions. He is very smart and so kind. I’ll for sure go back!
I just moved to Phoenix, AZ and decided to check out Family & Cosmetic Dental for the first time. I was pretty amazed at how great the experience was! Of course, I had to fill out new patient paperwork, but it was a pretty seamless process. They had some of it already filled in based on what I told them over the phone when I scheduled the appointment. The staff is very warm and informative. Everyone seemed highly skilled and efficient. The exam was comprehensive, and the hygienist did an amazing job cleaning my teeth, especially since I was a few months overdue. Dr. Pulkrabek had a proactive approach in regards to my ancient fillings and receding gums. I love that he took the time to explain his logic, review x-rays and pictures with me, and made sure that I understood how much it would cost before going through with any treatment or procedure. I don’t usually like going to the dentist, but this office made the experience pretty fantastic and pain free. I love how much they care about their patients and their desire to get ahead of dental problems!
After my husband’s awful dental experience, I decided to search for a new family dentist. The reviews about Dr. Pulkrabek and his staff at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix were spot on. From scheduling the appointment to the exam to check out, it was a wonderful experience. Dr. Pulkrabek is very skilled in his field and is now our new family dentist!
After going to Dr. Pulkrabek at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, I now realize my previous dentist was very old fashioned. Dr. Pulkrabek used some new technology that I have never seen in any other dentist office. Plus, they weren’t just rushing through cleaning my teeth; they were very thorough and examined my overall oral health, which included looking at my jaw muscles. They were detailed and explained everything thoroughly. They taught me so much about my teeth and gums, which never happened at my old dentist. Plus, they were very kind and pleasant to talk to.
I’ve been going to Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ for years and always have a wonderful experience. Aside from regular cleanings, I asked Dr. Pulkrabek to replace all my old metal fillings a few years ago, and he did a great job. He doesn’t overcharge, and my insurance covers all my cleanings except for the $17 fluoride treatment. From the receptions to the dentist to Dr. Pulkrabek, everyone at this office is inviting and timely.
Dr. Pulkrabek and his staff went the extra mile to ensure I had a great dental experience! I found Family & Cosmetic Dental on Doctors Network, and after reading all the great reviews, I scheduled an appointment at their office in Phoenix, AZ. There was a bit of a miscommunication, but one of his appointments cancelled last-minute, so he personally cleaned my teeth! It was the best cleaning I’d ever had. He said his hygienists are even better at it than he is, so I can’t imagine how awesome they are! While I was there, he set me up with a night guard and gave me a few tips on how to take care of my teeth and how to prevent future issues. He also filed my teeth in a few spots to make my bite feel better (free of charge, too!). This isn’t your average dental office. I love them and would recommend them to anyone!
I just had my first consult and surgery at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ. I am so amazed with Dr. Pulkrabek’s patience in explaining the procedure to me. He was able to look at my xrays from the exam and diagnose me quickly. Plus, the cost of his service is unmatched by any other dentist I’ve been to. But what really impressed me was that he only charged me half of what other dentists were going to charge for the same procedure, which saved me thousands of dollars! The other guy was going to charge me nearly $1k for just the anesthesia. The surgery went really smoothly and as planned! It didn’t hurt that much and the price he quoted me was on point. I healed quickly, too. The only thing I need to do is get a crown on the implant because his job was just to put the screw in. Now, I need to go to my usual dentist for the crown. They also cleaned my teeth at this office, and they did a great job. Two thumbs up from me!
I had two rotten teeth that needed to be extracted, and Dr. Pulkrabek at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ did such a great job. Except for the slight pinch from the numbing shot, I felt absolutely no pain during the procedure and little to no pain while I was healing. The staff was welcoming and efficient. Plus, the dentist office is the most beautiful office I’ve ever seen!
I was referred to Dr. Pulkrabek at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, and I’m so glad I listened and went to see him. I have a ton of dental issues, but Dr. Pulkrabek walked me through the perfect treatment plan to fix them all. He’s so considerate and highly skilled but not strict. The staff here always makes me laugh, and they’re very kind and detail oriented. They always follow up with me to ask how I’m doing after my treatment, and they even answer my calls after hours when I have questions. Parking can be hard to find sometimes, but they never try to rush through my appointments.
I was referred to Dr. Pulkrabek in Phoenix, AZ because I needed a crown lengthening. The environment in Family & Cosmetic Dental was soothing, and the procedure went really well - no issues! The sedation was lovely, and they took excellent care of me. I’ll be back if I need any other periodontal work done!
I just moved to Phoenix, AZ, so obviously, I needed to find a trustworthy dentist that I could go to for the next few years (or maybe the rest of my life). Initially, I went with Family & Cosmetic Dental due to where they were located, but I was so amazed at how warm and welcoming the staff was - from the receptionist to the hygienists to Dr. Pulkrabek! I’ve already told everyone about my great dentist's visits, so if you’re new to Phoenix or need a new dentist, I highly recommend Family & Cosmetic Dental!
I just moved to Phoenix, AZ and really needed a dentist. I Googled dentist offices near me and found Family & Cosmetic. As soon as I arrived, the staff was wonderful. I was really anxious, but the receptionist calmed my nerves. Thank you for that! And thank you to the hygienist who cleaned my teeth. Dr. Pulkrabek was very helpful. The office was busy, but he patiently explained all the problems he saw. You can tell he treats each patient this way, which is fantastic. Plus, the view from the dentist chair wasn’t too bad either.
Dr. Pulkrabek is the best dentist near me! He’ll put your mind at ease and make going to the dentist an enjoyable experience! I have been seeing him at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix for many years and have referred him to my family and friends. He’s an expert in his field and very careful, and his relaxing attitude reduces my anxiety. He is definitely a perfectionist, which is actually a good thing when it comes to dentists and does everything perfectly every single time. He far exceeds the skill and performance of any other dentist I’ve been to. Going to the dentist is usually never pleasant, but when you have Dr. Pulkrabek as your doctor, it’s pretty fantastic! He’s so funny and has an upbeat attitude, and you can really tell he cares about his patients. The person who manages the office and schedules appointments is awesome, too. I’m so fortunate to have found them, and I’ll never let any other dentist take care of my pearly whites!
Highly recommended! Due to my traveling lifestyle, I hadn’t seen a dentist in 4 years and had a lot of cavities. Dr. Pulkrabek and his staff are highly skilled, relatable, and caring. My gums were always bleeding whenever I brushed my teeth, but after two deep cleaning sessions, the bleeding stopped and my teeth were as healthy as ever. Hands down, Dr. Pulkrabek is the best dentist near me. He is patient and thoroughly explains the procedures he needs to do and never tries to make me do anything I don’t really need. I’m so lucky I found him at Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix, AZ!
Dr. Pulkrabek is a lifesaver! I’d been looking for an affordable dentist I could trust, but I couldn’t find anyone. Visiting the dentist was never a great experience until someone told me to go to Family & Cosmetic Dental. I did do a bit of “dentist hopping” before finding the right one. Dr. Pulkrabek never tried to push unnecessary procedures, and he was truthful and direct. Plus, he’s really funny! He even suggested I get braces. I definitely needed them, but I couldn’t find a dentist that would provide stress-free ortho work. I’ve been seeing Dr. Pulkrabek for a few years. Though the commute is a bit much since we are on opposite sides of Phoenix, it’s worth it because I know I can trust him. I’ve seen a different hygienist with every appointment I’ve gone too, but they are all great at their jobs and fun to be around. My husband even loves seeing Dr. Pulkrabek, which shows how great he is. I mean, who says they like going to the dentist? But we do! Make an appointment - your teeth with thank you!
Dr. Pulkrabek and his office (Family & Cosmetic Dental in Phoenix) are amazing! As soon as I arrived, the staff was so upbeat, informative, and inviting. They made me smile and feel so comfortable. My cleaning with my incredible hygienist was simple, quick, and productive. Everybody I spoke to was so authentic and welcoming that I didn’t want to go. I could have had a great time all afternoon just sitting in the lobby. Today was my second cleaning, and just like before, everyone remembered who I was and was so inviting and warm. Dr. Pulkrabek and his team were detailed and kind. They took their time and made sure to catch every little thing. I feel compelled to tell everyone how incredible Dr. Pulkrabek, his staff, and his office are! I love this dental office, and I’m fortunate to be one of their patients! If you’re even considering switching dentists, switch to this office! You won’t regret it!

I stumbled upon Family & Cosmetic Dental when I moved to Phoenix, AZ a few years ago. I have all wonderful things to report about Dr. Pulkrabek and his dental team. Everyone is very sociable and skillful, and the wait time for my appointment was only a few minutes. In addition to excellent patient care, they also don’t try to upsell you on unnecessary services, and the office is just gorgeous. Between all that and Dr. Pulkrabek’s upbeat, positive energy, going to the dentist is actually really enjoyable!
This dentist office is beautiful, and the staff is wonderful. I’ve never had a problem with scheduling an appointment and they even send out text reminders so that you don’t forget your appointment. Their practice may be small, but they do quality dental work and treat like a human being rather than just another person in the chair. I had to have a filling replaced and this Phoenix dentist did a great job and explained everything he was doing thoroughly. I took my 15 month old daughter in the other day and they were very patient and kind to her.
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Pulkrabek and his staff for a little over a year now, and I’ve been very impressed by the service I’ve received. They are very professional and know what they’re doing.

My elderly mother was in a lot of pain so I was looking for a dentist in Phoenix, AZ who could take care of her. A lot of places are only concerned with how much money they can make on you and didn’t have appointments until the end of the month. After doing research on Doctors Network I was very lucky to find this place. They listened to the concerns I had about my mother and were able to see us right away. I work in health care, but this was one of the only doctors I’ve ever come across who genuinely seemed to care about his patients. Everyone here, from the front desk people to the dental assistant were all very kind. Relieving my mother’s pain was their top priority. I have made this place my regular family dental office, and now my kids go here too. Thank you, Dr. Pulkrabek and everyone else at this dentist office in Maryvale. They even make sure you get to car OK, that’s how great and total their patient care is. It is truly amazing.

General Dental Care for the Whole Family in Phoenix, AZ
General dentistry is as essential to your smile as brushing and flossing your teeth. For example, preventive appointments are necessary to avoid dental issues such as tooth decay and gum disease. At our Phoenix, AZ dental office, Dr. Pulkrabek and our team offer an array of general dental procedures to help your family enjoy a lifetime of healthy smiles.
The Value of General and Preventative Dentistry
For your smile as well as your physical well-being, prevention is the best medicine. Therefore, the primary focus of family dental care is preventing dental diseases from developing in the first place. Besides brushing and flossing your teeth every day, professional dental cleanings and exams help stop the development of bacteria-rich plaque. Other procedures, such as tooth fillings, dental crowns, dental implants and implant supported prosthesis, and more, can also help you address existing issues before they worsen.
Caring for Your Smile in the Long Run
At your general dentistry appointment, your dentist will thoroughly inspect your teeth and oral tissues for signs of trouble. If any are present, then he or she will discuss your options for treatment to stop the problem from worsening. However, ensuring a lifetime of healthy smiles will still rely on routine visits with your general dentist.
