about intraoral cameras
An intraoral camera provides a broader and comprehensive dental evaluation. By using one of these small pen-like tools, Dr. Patrick Yoshikane may have a much better, high-resolution view of your gums and teeth. An intraoral camera can capture all angles of your teeth and gums that can be viewed on a connected screen. It can also provide a more precise diagnosis and allow you to fully understand your condition. The intraoral camera system may also be used during a procedure to provide Dr. Yoshikane with a greater visual. During your initial consultation at Patrick Yoshikane, D.D.S. in Orange, CA, Dr. Yoshikane will show you the advantages of intraoral cameras to supply a more precise dental exam and treatment.
"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 is amazing! I can tell you from my very first visit. I have found my forever Dentist.I had prior dental work done and I was totally unhappy with my results. I really didn't like to smile much. I had a cap on my front tooth and the post underneath was black and my prior dentist didn't clean it up so you were able to see it through the cap Dr. Yoshikane was able to clean up the post and made a cap that looks so real that you cannot tell it is fake. From my experience this man will not let you walk out of his office unless he is happy with his work and you're happy. I recommend Dr. Yoshikane and his staff for all your dental wants and needs."- F.O. / Yelp / Oct 04, 2019
"I'm new to the OC area, and found this place.. thank God I did!! They took care of me from the second I walked into the door. I came in to fix a chipped tooth, and now it looks better than it ever did! The ladies at the front desk are angels on earth.. they sent me off with FRESHLY BAKED COOKIES. Wow, it is so rare to walk into a business and be surrounded by such genuine and caring people like this!! I will be back in December for a good ol' cleaning. I've never said this before in my life- IM EXCITED FOR MY NEXT TRIP TO THE DENTIST! Thank y'all for everything Update: I went back to Dr. Yoshikane for 3 cavities.. he filled them all in under an hour! I had no pain, and was even laughing while he did it because he is so good at making you feel calm and comfortable. His assistant is so sweet (just like everyone else in the office), she even gave me a blanket because I was nervous. Turns out, I had nothing to be nervous about! THANK YOU"- L.P. / Yelp / Sep 09, 2019
"Dr. Yoshikane is a true artist! He does such beautiful work and is 100% committed to his clients and the quality of his work. He really makes you feel comfortable and has a wonderful and supportive staff. When you have dental work done, you want it done by a perfectionist. That’s is Mr. Yoshikane."- J.M. / Google / Sep 30, 2019
"I have been going to Dr Yoshikane for several years now. He provides excellent care with the most advanced technology. If you ask him "how does this work", or "how are you going to do that", he will patiently explain. I have had a lot of dental work done (fillings, crowns, extractions, root canals and an implant) and I have always had the best outcome with Dr Yoshikane! The front staff are wonderful, as well as the hygienist. Pricing is not any higher than any other dentists I have been to and.... THEY HAVE COFFEE AND FRESH BAKED COOKIES!!!! So I leave with a coffee and a cookie! Can't get better than that!"- H.A. / Yelp / Aug 28, 2019
