"Steve Tiret has seamlessly transitioned me through associateship, partnership and solo ownership. I am always impressed at how quickly my concerns are addressed and his entire team is extremely professional. Not only does Tiret handle my accounting, they also handle my payroll and have given me wonderful referrals for retirement consultants and investment advice. I have referred Tiret to all my dental colleagues because their service and personal touch is unsurpassed. I sleep better knowing Tiret handles my accounting needs."
-Priya O'Callaghan, DDS (Oakland, CA)
"I've been a client of Tiret & Company for almost 25 years. My Infertility Center would not be here today had it not been for Steve Tiret and his team. Not only have they provided me with absolutely superb accounting service, but back in 1987, the team also put in place our business accounting system and developed our personnel manual. The same year, they also taught us a Communication Circle skills for personnel problem solving without which the business would have imploded from within a long time ago.
The advice I have received over the years has been priceless. My taxes have always been right on the spot and I have never been audited. I also appreciate the many referrals I have been given (lawyers, financial advisors, travel agents, etc.). They were all nothing but top notch people.
I really admire the work Steve and his team have done and am looking forward to many more years of our mutual relationship and incredible service!"
-Francis F Polansky, MD (Palo Alto, CA)
"It's been a journey, one that brought us friends. An experience, that went far beyond expectations one usually associates with an accountant. It's over 8 years now since the day we first met Steve Tiret to help us with our first dental office takeover. We have grown to four offices since. Steve and his team of awesome individuals have been there for us every step of the way - above-par professionals, always proactive with flawless execution. Anyone considering Tiret and Company, CPAs for accounting services - look no further. Do what you do best they will handle the rest. Strongly recommended."
-Gurjit Randhawa, DDS, MDS and Aneet Randhawa, DDS, MDS (Union City, CA)
"Several years ago I was considering becoming a partner in the purchase of a dental building and needed an accountant with experience and expertise in that area. A friend and colleague referred me to Mike Tiret with whom he had a long-term relationship. Mike and I had a very pleasant discussion after which he said he would analyze my practice data, tax returns, etc. and offer his opinion. Two days later he called to recommend the purchase and to tell me that he had scrutinized my tax returns and found I had a substantial amount of money coming to me as soon as he could amend and file them. Talk about great first impressions!
Now the results in this case shouldn't be considered typical or expected (LOL) but I can say without reservation that you won't find a better accounting firm than Tiret & Company. The client service is exceptional; if I call or send an email with a question, I get an answer that day and often within that hour. Tiret & Company isn't limited to dentists, but they have taken care of so many for so long that there isn't much you can do that they haven't seen or heard many times before and that is very comforting.
The entire staff is friendly, professional, and dedicated to making your practice and life go smoothly. I am sure this is because Tiret is a family business with a long history of making personal relationships a priority. Mike has been very helpful with our children's career paths and provided them with great business contacts as well as helpful advice. He is an unbelievable accountant and at this point an even better friend. I have been in dentistry for over twenty-five years and I can't think of a professional relationship that has been more beneficial to my career."

"I have been with Tiret & Company for 9 years and I am very pleased with their attention to detail. From my monthly reports to our semi-annual meetings and reviews I am confident they always have my best interest in mind. I have referred several colleagues and friends throughout the years and they have been thrilled with the high level of service they've received. They are a reputable firm and I couldn't imagine working with anyone else."
-Mamal Rahimi, DDS (Los Gatos, CA)
"I have been a client of Steve Tiret for 22 years, and in that time I have always received the utmost in professionalism and integrity from both him and his amazing staff. As a general dentist, i have found that Steve possesses a deep understanding of the business of dentistry, and doesn't hesitate to offer his sound advice. Besides being readily available and knowledgeable, Steve's friendly and engaging personality actually makes the business of accounting enjoyable!"
-Michele M Chalmers, DDS (Pleasanton, CA)
"I hate doing anything that deals with numbers. I just like doing my orthodontics, working with people and straightening teeth. I met Eric and Steve Tiret in 2008 and found them to be honest, working for the small business owner and very thorough with their work. Eric and Steve are very attentive to their clients' needs and take time to understand the financial objectives of their clients. They are great to work with and come highly recommended!"
-Sheldon Salins, DMD, MS (South San Francisco, CA)

-Debbie McDonnell (Kenneth Associates, San Francisco, CA)
"Tiret has been taking care of my accounting needs for more than 25 years. Initially, Tiret handled my personal tax accounting. When I founded a company, Tiret took on the company's accounting work as well. Over the years, our finance and accounting needs have grown in scope and complexity and Tiret has grown along with us, providing a range of services essential to the business. Mike Tiret, the partner we've worked with, has become a friend and advisor, and has helped us find additional business resources and establish banking and other key relationships. The close, enduring relationship we've had with Tiret has been an important factor in our financial well-being on both the personal and business fronts."
-Peter Schireson (Schireson Associates, North Fork, CA)
“Having a CPA who specializes in dentistry has helped me tremendously over the years. It means that I don’t have to educate my financial advisor about my business. When we get together, we have productive discussions about my practice and financial goals . . .”
-Dick Farrington, DDS, San Jose, CA
“Tiret’s personal attention to detail has always been very helpful to me. It gives me more time to concentrate on my practice.”
-Karl Brose, DDS, Santa Cruz, CA
“I switched to Tiret 15 years ago and have consistently received excellent service.

Tiret continues to watch out for my welfare financially as well as refer me to the right person for all my needs. It’s not a matter of just number crunching.”
-Richard J. Kramer, MD, San Jose, CA
