Verified Patient Reviews
She was very nice and the person who did my cleanup (Michelle) was great!
She was so great and the office is beautiful!
Dr. Shapiro is very cordial; explains procedures thoroughly beforehand; provides running commentary throughout the procedure so that the patient is not surprised by what's happening; asks the patient throughout the procedure if s/he is comfortable. I feel well-taken care of at her office. Yuni, her assistant, is also very capable and provides excellent customer service.
My husband and I absolutely loved Dr. Shapiro and miss her after we relocated. She was awesome about letting us know about little issues and asking if we want to tackle them right away or schedule around to use our FSA dollars efficiently. We never had to wait on appointments and the team is so efficient that most of my cleanings were 30 minutes flat.
Dr. Shapiro is the best. She cares about her patients. If you are not a patient,, you need to come to your senses and do yourself and all of your teeth a favor.
Probably my favorite dentist of all time. She's so kind and I love how she thinks about the least invasive solution first.
Dr.Shapiro isn't a good sales person. Deep clean instead of regualr clean, not smart
Quick and painless. Joy!
Dr. Shapiro and her team are fabulous! I just moved to SF and was in search of a new dentist, which can always be a scary endeavor. I was very lucky to find Dr. Shapiro! Scheduling an appointment was super simple, and the office is nice and in a convenient location. My cleaning was very easy and pleasant, and they even have Netflix to make the process go by quicker! Dr. Shapiro and her team are attentive, knowledgable, and professional. I recommend them 100%!
Best dentist appointment I've ever had. Thorough, quick, enjoyable. Great energy from the entire staff.
Excellent visit all around. Dr. Shapiro and her team are fantastic.
I love that Dr Shapiro is the person who does the whole cleaning, not just a hygienist. She is prompt, efficient and friendly!
It was my first appointment and everything went well - they office is well organized, fast & efficient. Plus, it was cool to be able to watch Netflix with headphones during the cleaning - definitely a nice distraction!
I really appreciate Dr. Shapiro's no-nonsense approach -- she's direct and professional. She give you realistic options and honest assessments. She's like an honest car mechanic -- once you find her you'll want to keep her forever.
Amazing. Dr. Shapiro makes going to the dentist fun. She is the best dentist ever.
Such a great first visit to Dr. Shapiro. She helped me feel relaxed and at ease (no easy task for a dentist!) and I felt fully confident in her skills and knowledge. The rest of the staff were also incredibly friendly and competent. Highly recommend!
A little bit of a wait; however, got me out in time. Great staff and everyone was very pleasant!
I legit look forward going to my dentist appointments with Dr. Shapiro! She is a adorable, fun, and knowledgable! Best dentist ever. I've been her patient since 2015 now!
very knowledgeable staff, efficient visit, and NETFLIX while you get your teeth cleaned! amazing!
Lea was excellent! I'm not a fan of going to see a dentist and she asked right away how I was feeling and made sure that I was comfortable. Holliday was great as well! She offered to put on Netflix for me, but I think choosing to watch Arrested Development was a mistake. Trying not to laugh while someone is cleaning your teeth is pretty difficult.
The office is pleasant. Lea is great and her assistant as well. The receptionist is also super resourceful. Everyone was great! You also get to watch netflix while getting your teeth cleaned =D
Dr. Shapiro was very professional, accurate and she took the time to explain me everything was going on during the visit and make me comfortable . All the personnel was very kind and competent.
Fantastic. I'll recommend to everyone!
I think her staff was helpful, friendly and nice. Lea Shapiro is friendly and knowledgeable. Thanks!
Watermelon lip balm sample... nice touch!
Love Dr. Shapiro's office and her treatment. Quick, personal, effective, and in a very modern (if small) facility.
Staffs are amazing and Dr. Lea Shapiro is amazing!!!! LOVE this place!!!
This was my first trip there. Holiday was awesome to meet as I walked in and great to talk to. Leah and Dr. Shapiro had excellent bedside manner and Dr. Shapiro was incredibly friendly and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me. The cleaning was quick and painless and I got to watch The Office while they did it. New favorite Dentist!
Dr. Shapiro is amazing. Very thorough and professional. She takes the time to put you at ease and answer any questions. Highly recommended!
Both Holliday and Lea were amazing from our first greeting to follow up. This was the best first dentist visit I have ever had! Excited to have found a dentist I really like.
Lea and her team are great- highly recommend!
She was awesome. She was thorough and explained everything that was going on. Her entire team was really friendly and kind. Not to mention, patients get to watch Netflix which was an unexpected surprise! It made the whole dental process less nerve-wrecking for me. Great first appointment. Looking forward to see her again in the next 6 months.
Dr. Shapiro was easy to talk to and seemed knowledgable. Her staff was very kind and accommodating when I was late for my appointment due to public transit. Really appreciated it, I will be back!
First time appointment, went in for a routine cleaning. Dr. Shapiro and her staff were excellent.
Great visit! Staff was all very friendly and I had a very pleasant cleaning with Dr. Shapiro. Will be going back again very soon, and hopefully continue for a long time.
Amazing place with amazing service! Dr. Shapiro was really friendly and the staff was awesome too. They even let you watch Netflix while your teeth are being worked on
Great Dentist! Always super friendly. They have a TV if you want to use it, and will chat if you'd like as well. The dentist suck, and these guys don't.
She was great!
She is the best! I first went to here with an emergency situation--I hadn't seen a dentist in 10 years. She was so helpful, empathetic, and positive. Now I never miss an appointment with her.
I absolutely love coming to Lea! Lea and her whole staff are amazing - highly recommend them.
Really liked my first visit with Dr. Shapiro! Overall a great dental experience. Dr. Shapiro was very friendly and answered my questions patiently and clearly. Being able to watch Netflix during my teeth cleaning was a nice touch -- I suggest watching the documentary Planet Earth to make the experience more relaxing.
The entire staff is awesome. Very pleasant experience.
I don't like going to dentists in general, but Lea and her office were exceptional. First, I arrived a half-hour late (my fault). They did not give me a hard time at all. In fact, they were totally understanding, and I was sitting in the patient chair within a minute. Also, I have a horrific gag reflex, which Lea and Teresa handled quite well. I have an issue with a tooth that I need taken care of at a later date, and I look forward to seeing Lea again. That's right -- I'm looking forward to going back to a dentist!
Dr. Shapiro is very nice, and does almost all the work herself -- an assistant gets you set up and does some polishing at the end, but you get a lot of time with the doctor.
Great visit. Everyone was very nice, social and good service.
Incredible. Recommending to everyone I know. Best dentist experience yet. Bonus points for Netflix during my cleaning.
Second time visiting Dr Shapiro, a real pleasure (As much as a visit to the dentist can be a pleasure...)
The whole staff was out of this world amazing. Very clean office, staff was very courteous, polite and professional. Would absolutely recommend this dentist.
By far, the most pleasant dentist appointment I've ever had. Dr. Shapiro was very cordial and explained all the procedures carefully. Everything was very efficient as well.
First dentist visit after 2 years and I've finally found mine in SF! Quick, clean, friendly. The entire staff makes you feel right at home.
My recent visit was exactly what every dentist visit should feel like!! Front office was nice, I had a great conversation with the wonderful and professional Holiday (sp); a great interaction with the beautiful and friendly assistant, Miriam; and I felt Dr. Shapiro was sophisticated, thorough, lovely and engaging! I can't wait to go back! My teeth are in good hands.
Great Dentist- Very helpful and not intimidating.
This is office to be highly recommended. Lea Shapiro is a straight forward, professional dentist with a personal touch that is no non-sense yet compassionate. The staff is friendly and well informed, appointments are on time. Overall a positive experience.
Just all around Fantastic!
It was a fantastic experience! I thoroughly enjoyed the staff and they made me very comfortable adjusting to a new dentist.
Dr. Shapiro was fantastic as were all the staff at The Dental Suite. She was warm, professional and accommodating to both my schedule before the holidays and also to my "dental anxiety". Would highly recommend!
Dr Shapiro and her staff were SO friendly and welcoming. I loved it!
Dr. Shapiro and her staff are amazing! I called to see if I could get in early and Jeff texted her to come in so I could. Great explanations, very attentive, listened to me and was honest and candid in her (conservative) care recommendations. Great dentist and dental office.
Great visit. Staff were all very friendly and accommodating. Lea was informative and made the visit easy. Highly recommend.
