"Dr. Yoshikane and his staff are awesome. They have been my wife and her families dentist forever and have been my dentist for the last two years. They helped me out recently at the last minute with my wisdom teeth. I had been putting it off for 20 plus years because they never hurt and out of the blue the one on my upper left jaw became inflamed and began causing me pretty bad pain. I gave them a call and they got me in to check it out and after seeing the inflammation the set me up to get them out. Dr. Yoshikane asked me if I wanted sedation or local and I said local. I am not a big fan of sedation and dental work doesn't weird me out. The procedure went great and Dr. Yoshikane and his assistant checked on my pain level throughout the whole procedure to make sure I was not in pain. It was a great experience and I would recommend him to anyone local looking for a great dental office who does everything they can to help their patients as quickly as they can."- G.S. / Yelp / Nov 09, 2018
"Dr. Yoshikane and his team are friendly, informative and ease the anxiety that dental visits bring. Over the years I've heard many horror stories about wisdom teeth removal so when my turn came to finally part with mine, I was very apprehensive. Dr. Y took the time to thoroughly explain all the pros and cons, laid out a detailed plan then he and his team made sure my comfort and care during the procedure were top notch. Visits to the dentist no longer trigger anxiety attacks thanks to Dr Yoshikane's office."- L.M. / Yelp / Jul 24, 2019
