Every person I spoke with at the office, including Dr. Tomizawa, was so cheerful and professional. I honestly have never had a better experience at any doctor's office. Dr. Tomizawa was thorough and quick while still taking the time to getto know me as a patient. She laid out several preventative care options but was not pushy at all with treatments - which is something that I have felt at other practices. The icing on the cake was that the staff took the time to sit down with me to discuss how billing worked on all treatment options so I could decide if it was right for me. This is something everyone should be doing! Dealing with insurance and medical billing if usually such a pain but this approach was clear and very honest. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

I can see exactly why Dr. Tomizawa has such great reviews, she is very warm, welcoming and personable. She really takes her time with you, not like other dentists who come in for a quick minute at the end of yourappointment. She explained everything thoroughly and helps you come up with a good game plan for the future.

The treatment was fine, cleaning was good but she was a bit rude and had a hard time answering my questions. Not because she didn't know the answers but I thin she just was tired and didn't feel like answering to me. I will give her another try.

I was told I needed 9 cavities filled and 2 root canals at my routine cleaning. I was surprised to hear this bc I had no pain. Went and got a second opinion and was told my teeth were perfect andhad no cavities. Enough said....I won't be returning. I don't appreciate an office trying to rip you off.

Always so terrific! She cleaned my teeth this time and did a wonderful job. Most importantly, she encourages better dental hygiene without it being a lecture - I know I could be better about flossing and more regular with my dental visits (2x vs 1x a year)

They were great before but they've been implementing some new procedures even at the dental cleaning level that's fantastic, including small things like goggles for your eyes. They've also stepped up preventative care, and take the time toexplain everything and walk you through the reasoning behind things like flossing! Also Dr. Maiko now speaks to every patient even during a cleaning!!

Excellent. As someone who hadn't been to the dentist in a few years, she didn't make me feel guilty about it - was very friendly and informative and was more interested in recommending dental work that would be best for mein the long run rather than just what would allow them to bill the most -- highly recommended!
