Since we live in Bloomington, there are many dentists in our immediate vicinity. However, we want excellence in our dentist, which we have found in Dr. Douglas Talus, rather than just a convenient location. His dental office is a bright, clean welcoming place where our presence is immediately recognized. If there will be a slight unintended delay in our appointment, we are notified immediately. His hygienists and assistants explain any necessary procedures. If Dr. Talus finds something out of the ordinary must be done, he carefully explains options available to us. We also appreciate how thoroughly he examines our mouths to detect any possible problems.
We have complete confidence in Dr. Talus and have never been disappointed.

I have trusted Dr. O’Halloran with my family’s dental care for over 35 years. The quality of his work and his respectful demeanor keep me and my family returning and feeling well cared for.
Dr. O’Halloran has a friendly, caring manner that helps put one at ease. He takes time getting to know you, your family, your general health and your teeth. With his family focus and promotion of preventative dentistry Dr. O’Halloran gently teaches oral health without lecturing or criticizing. The specialists he has referred us to have also been high quality professionals. When treatments/procedures are necessary, Dr. O’Halloran explains the need, suggests a plan and gives alternatives. He listens to and is considerate of your concerns. My family and I have benefited from Dr. O’Halloran’s professional expertise and wisdom. We value his care.

Dr. O'Halloran has been the primary dental care provider to our family of five for over 25 years. Over that time, he and his caring staff of professionals at Rhode Island Dental have been simply fantastic to work with. He is knowledgeable, professional, personable, and truly compassionate about the dental and personal well being of his patients. We are happy to have started working with Dr. O'Halloran and heartily recommend him!

Dr. Talus, also known as Dr. Gentle, is the most honest and caring dentist that I have ever known. I drive 25 miles for my dental visits when there are dozens in the neighborhood and I wouldn’t use any other dentist.
Dr. Talus has been our family dentist for many years now. I am so impressed with the individual compassion and competence of Dr. Talus and the entire staff at the Rhode Island Dental Clinic. Everyone works so hard to provide the very best care. I thank Dr. Talus and his team for giving us not only healthy but fabulous smiles!
I have been going to Dr. O’Halloran for almost 40 years! He took care of my two sons as they were growing and always steered us in the right direction, whether we needed braces or wisdom teeth extracted. When I moved out of the area 8 years ago I tried different dentists but no one compared to Dr. O’Halloran so I returned to him. He is extremely kind, capable and makes going to the dentist as enjoyable as it can be. I have 100% confidence in him!
I’ve known Dr. Talus since my son Alex was 3 years old, he is now going off to college. He said to me, Mom how am I ever going to get my teeth cleaned by someone as nice and gentle as Dr. Doug? I said, Alex you are so right, he is The Best; thankfully we have you scheduled before you leave for Montana. We have 3 other children who think so too! Our other kids will even ask me throughout the year if it is time for us to go to see Dr. Doug. We don’t know where we would be without him; he makes our smiles look beautiful as well as makes us smile!
We have been patients of Dr. O’Halloran for over 14 years. What started as a close and convenient location for the two of us, turned into our family dentist that we travel to from the northern suburb of Champlin, with our three sons (ages 9, 9 and 7). The whole staff is friendly and welcoming. Not only do we trust the comprehensive and comfortable dental care, but also feel we are treated as “family” from the time we sit down in the chair until the time we leave. The staff makes every appointment convenient for us in order to limit the amount of visits we have to make, especially if something “special” needs to be done. Rhode Island Dental is the only dental office we have brought our children. They have treated each of them with thorough, calm and reassuring care. We realize we could find a more convenient office for our dental hygiene needs, but Rhode Island Dental has proven that we shouldn’t. We feel blessed that we have found a dentist who is fair and helpful in so many matters pertaining to our dental health.

We have been patients of Dr. O’Halloran for 34 consecutive and uninterrupted years. We knew immediately that he would be our dentist for a lifetime. He is an outstanding practioner with excellent diagnostic skills. His work reflects his character and attention to detail. Dr. O’Halloran has a wonderful personality. He is a good listener, has a great sense of humor, and is a calming presence while in his chair. His staff and assistants are also excellent.
Dr. O’Halloran is, simply the best!
