“Dr. Olaru is simply the best dentist I have ever had in my 30 years of life. What does that mean? For starters, Dr. Olaru is most interested in what is ailing you. Most of the times we go to dentists because we have to and Dr. Olaru understands that, and wants to cure/fix/treat whatever pain you are in. Second, Serban made me feel like I was a partner in my treatment. We discussed all options and he even took some of my suggestions without the arrogance found in many medical professionals. I highly recommend Dr. Olaru.” July 23, 2007

“I have been Dr. Olaru’s patient since 2006. At the time his office was in Marysville WA and despite the fact that he moved to Coeur d' Alene, Idaho, I still come to his new dental office and his awesome staff. Dr. Olaru is an excellent dentist, extremely knowledgeable, up on the latest dental findings and discoveries of his profession. Dr. Olaru has an extensive experience in AlloDerm Dental Grafting, and he healed the severe gum recessions on my upper teeth. It was a real success, and I am extremely grateful. Dr. Olaru and his efficient staff always treated me as if I was the only patient they have and visits to his office were always a positive experience. I highly recommend Dr. Olaru and his staff.” July 2, 2011

I LOVE the office staff. They are so nice. And I have been busy taking care of my children's teeth and now

that they are more or less grown I need alot of TLC myself. And I have been to other and I left their office

overwhelmed and ashamed. Dr.Olaru was kind and said "caring for my children is a badge of honor, not

shame. " I left feeling better both physically & emotionally and am now on my way with Mountain Oral 

Care to taking care of my teeth. 1 appt. down and many to go, but many THANKS to Mountain Oral Care!

I needed to have a root canal in a tooth that was fractured and was looking for a dentist that would be capable of doing an implant, if I decided to go that route. My general dentist in Sandpoint recommended a root canal "specialist" in CDA which after reading his reviews decided to keep looking. I found Dr. Olaru's website Mountain Side Oral Care and called his office. Turns out that the Dr answered the phone because his staff was out to lunch. He spent a good 20 minutes on the phone with me answering all of my "hypothetical, what if questions" I decided to make the appointment and I am so glad I did! During my appointment Dr. Olaru patiently explained all of the options I had and also had his Office manager Kathy, breakdown the cost options of each option... going over in detail, several times, what the insurance would cover and what my out of pocket expenses would amount to. We wound up extracting the tooth and preparing the space for an implant. Everything went without a hitch! Sure, lots of pain and swelling due to the level of infection but... everything the Dr. said would happen did... By the 5th day I was right as rain. They checked in with me during my healing process and provided me with the Doctors cell number in case I had any questions or concerns!! Prior to my initial examination (due to several factors) I was very clear that I would have to have extensive work on my teeth which Dr. Olaru confirmed. There was no preasure or sense of force or urgency to do anything other than deal with the issue at hand. Not once did he say anything that made me feel bad or negative about the condition of my teeth (I have really bad teeth). He took the time to create a comprehensive long term plan so that I could begin to proactively prepare for future treatments. Also, everyone in the office was extremely kind and gentle and patient. It was one of the very few times I felt like they were truly there FOR me and not like I was some faceless "procedure" and "payment". I highly recommend Dr. Olaru. His chairside manner was exceptional and he and his staff are just Really, Really kind and caring people.
