For the most part, things were okay. The main issue was that I had to come back for a cleaning. I was really excited to get my teeth cleaned after two years, and all we did was an Xray for a90 minute appointment. Additionally, I thought it was weird that my teeth profile was being shot with an old digital camera & the assistant was using these metal clips to pull my lips for the pictures. It felt unusual. Lastly, the pricing seemed a little expensive.

Fantastic team and office, with an incredible front desk that makes the entire process welcoming and smooth (especially on handling the insurance piece of things).

I moved to SF recently & needed to find a new dentist. A friend recommended Dental Aesthetica & I'm so happy I found this place. Their beautiful modern office is located near my office in the financial district. I was seenon time and the assistant, Melissa, was very friendly & gentle when she took my x rays. My cleaning & exam were done by Dr. Nishimori, it went very smoothly. He recommended a night guard due to signs of grinding & it really helped me. My partner says he doesn't hear me grinding my teeth @ night and I no longer wake up with jaw soreness anymore. I would highly recommend Dental Aesthetica to anyone looking for great dental care.

I recently moved out of the city to the East Bay, but continue going to Dental Aesthetica for my dental work. I'm a perfectionist when it comes to my teeth, and I trust no one other than the dentist here. Iwas having sensitivity and it turns out one of my old fillings I've had since a child fell out. Dr. Nishimori was very thorough in explaining my condition and showed me pictures of the tooth with the missing filling. They were able to reduce the filling the same day, and I no longer have sensitivity. I've never had an issue with insurance or billing @ this office. We all know understanding insurance can be very confusing, but Mari does a great job answering any questions I have and clearly explains what is covered and what is out-of-pocket. It is a far commute for me, but definitely worth the quality dentistry done here.

I hadn't been to a dentist in about 3 years and when I came to see Dr. Nishimori my teeth weren't in the best of shape. I had a very deep cavity and I was worried it had hit the nervebut he was able to save the tooth. He is very professional and friendly. He always makes sure that you are comfortable and he is very gentle. The office is modern and beautiful. The rest of the staff is very helpful and very nice throughout x-rays, cleaning, etc. I highly recommend Dental Aesthetica and Dr. Nishimori.
