Kathleen was incredibly kind and easy-going. She ACTUALLY informed me of what was going on and how to prevent (other than the usual flossing or brushing recommendations). I have never had a better experience at a dentist. Highly recommend.

Great first time visit - professional, friendly staff; comfortable, clean space. The cleaning was very thorough, and the dentist/hygienists were responsive and careful if I expressed discomfort. I ended up waiting more than I planned tobefore my appointment, as I didn't realize I hadn't given my insurance information when I filled out the online forms. So I would have appreciated a call to provide that information ahead of time, to reduce wait time at the office. Overall great experience!

Excellent! Dr. Marcelo was friendly, informative, and didn’t skimp on time spent explaining exactly what she saw in my X-rays and pictures of my teeth. I was also impressed that the dentist herself did most of the cleaning. Unlike other dentistsI’ve been to in SF she was thorough and clear during the visit and didn’t try to con me into extra procedures or unnecessary extra visits to the office. Her assistant Helen was friendly and helpful as well. Definitely recommend.
