"Dr. Yoshikane is awesome! I got a complete crown job (all of my teeth) and they are so beautiful. Now I look at myself in the mirror all day. (With a paper bag on my head of course, but with holes cut out for my eyes to see and my mouth to smile.) Seriously, I had gotten crowns before coming here, and they looked awful in comparison (I wasn't aware how unprofessional they were until Dr. Y edumacated me about 'em). They didn't look natural. My new teeth look 100% natural, they are translucent and do not have a fake, opaque white color like my last crowns. Worse, my old crowns were too thick and were pushing up against my gums, which were swollen and almost purple (no discomfort but as Dr. Y's photos showed me they sure didn't look healthy). The new crowns fit perfectly. My gums have a healthy pink color again! They also have a really smooth surface that feels nice on the tongue, no sharp or rough edges. And although they fit really snugly together (as they should), it's easy to floss, the floss snaps in and out. Dr. Yoshikane is unbelievably meticulous. He insists on multiple fittings to make sure that the crowns are perfect before cementing them in. Last dentist didn't do that. One fitting, and in they went. Best part is the sedation (I think they called it oral conscious sedation - ?). No needles; you take it orally (duh). Then, you're out for the most part (I was sawing logs, probably drooling too) and don't remember what happened, but if they ask you to do something you're able to hear and comply, before drifting off again to la-la land...or buzzsaw-land in my case... Dr. Yoshikane is supported by a terrific staff who are all dedicated professionals. They came in on weekends and once worked on me -all day long-, from the morning until horribly late at night (10 pm). I really appreciated that!! On top of that, as a token of their appreciation they sent me a $100 gift certificate to a nice restaurant. I never had a dentist do that before. Finally, it's not cheap (my last dentist was), but it's worth every penny. It doesn't get better thatn this. If you want quality workmanship and professional treatment, you will not be disappointed. Guaranteed! (Sorry for the long rambling review -- ADHD)"



"I would have to say Dr Yoshikane is one of the best dentists I have been to. He is very efficient and explains everything to you so you can understand it. You can tell by the way he works, his overall objective is to help his patients and to keep a healthy smile. He is so gentle and I can never feel anything when he is working on my teeth, not even the numbing part! Usually at any other dentist I can feel the needle :(  Dr Yoshikane and his staff alway make sure you're comfortable and taken care of. You can even get a blanket if you're cold!  That's awesome! I just want to fall asleep after I see him because I'm so relaxed. How many times can you say that after you see a dentist?!?!  He is even great with kids! That's a plus!  If you want a great experience and a great team working on your smile, go see Dr Yoshikane! I also love Linda his office manager! She is a great asset to that dentist office!"



"Let me start by saying that I absolutely do NOT like going to the dentist. After being referred to Dr Yoshikane by a friend, I decided to give him a try. His staff is so friendly and knowledgable. My first appt was very thorough and my cleaning was the best I've ever had. Even their chairs are comfortable! Dr Yoshikane does everything he can to make your dental experience pain-free and enjoyable (if I can use that word for the dentist). I had a root canal and 2 crowns done. No complaints, no pain. He even offers sedation dentistry. I highly recommend Dr Yoshikane if you are looking for a good, friendly, knowledgable, and skilled dentist!"



"I've had a really hard time finding a good, reliable dentist. On the recommendation of a work colleague I went to Dr. Yoshikane and his team. I'm so SO happy I did. From the minute I talked to wonderful Blancha (I hope I spelled it right Blancha!) on the phone I knew it was going to be a great place. I chipped a tooth and was kinda freaking out about it but Blancha scheduled me almost immediately for X-Rays to see what was wrong. Dr. Yoshikane himself is just fantastic. So personable and explains every procedure he's doing. Angel, Shirley and Cherry were also wonderful! This office also adds little touches that makes you feel like they really value your custom, things like a coffee or tea when you leave or a lip balm if your lips are chapped during a procedure. Honestly I'm so happy, I can't recommend it enough. I just hope not tooooo many people go here so they still have space for me ;)"



"Dr. Yoshikane is an amazing dentist. He is really nice, professional, and gentle.   My orthodontist recommended a frenectomy after my braces were removed.  I was very nervous.  I met the doctor 1 week ago for the first time when he cleaned my teeth. My parents told me that I would really like him.  I instantly felt comfortable because he is so nice and he took the time to get to know me.  I gave my mom a thumbs up to have him do the frenectomy which is the removal of the fold of skin under the top lip. Doctor took the time to explain to me how the frenectomy is done. I felt a little nervous when I arrived for the procedure today and Dr. Yoshikane noticed this and made me feel very comfortable. He kept my mind busy with stories and stopped to ask me if I was ok.  I didn't feel a thing!   I have no pain and no swelling. I would recommend Dr. Yoshikane to anyone who needs a dentist.  The people in his office are very nice too. He even called me at night to check on me. I give Dr. Yoshikane 5 stars!"
