I love Dr. Shapiro! She pointed things out to me that three other dentists had said were no big deal, but actually are impacting my dental health. Highly recommend!

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 FSAdollars 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 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 iscomfortable. I feel well-taken care of at her office. Yuni, her assistant, is also very capable and provides excellent customer service.

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%!

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 forme, but I think choosing to watch Arrested Development was a mistake. Trying not to laugh while someone is cleaning your teeth is pretty difficult.

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 lessnerve-wrecking for me. Great first appointment. Looking forward to see her again in the next 6 months.

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 Iwas 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.
