"I recently was involved in a Bike accident where I sustained many injuries, one of those injuries being my front teeth being knocked out. I was worried, depressed, stressed about finances & in a lot of pain. Luckily after making some calls I was referred to the offices of Dr. Patrick Yoshikane, & I am so fortunate I was. The offices knew my emergency & they were able to fit me in first thing in the morning to make sure I was okay & to fix my issue with my teeth. Upon arrival I was greeted by a wonderful staff who were so attentive, professional, & kind. My injuries were painful, I was upset, hurt & in shock still from the trauma & they did everything they could to make me relaxed, comfortable & at ease. The staff even took time to go over billing options so that I would be able to make it work with my finances which really was amazing to see them go above and beyond to breakdown & explain everything vs most places that just send you home with forms. After meeting with Dr. Yoshikane he reassured me I was in good hands & they were going to help me..... & they did! I left feeling like a new person, able to smile again & feel this burden of depression and stress lifted from shoulders. Every moment spent there was great, each person from their staff was so attentive & caring & answered all my questions, helped me, & made me comfortable. Also their follow up after my appointment has been so impressive & leaving the office I knew I found my new permanent Dentist office. Thank you so much again Dr. Yoshikane & Staff!!! Each of you helped me in my recovery so much & I look forward to seeing you all again & calling your offices my permanent Dentist home."- C.M. / Yelp / Nov 08, 2019
"I can't sing enough praises for Dr. Patrick Yoshikane and his team! Of all the dentists I have ever had, there is no other that can hold a candle to Dr. Yoshikane. I have been going to him for almost 2 years. Every time I go there, I always feel like I am at home with an on-call, personal dentist. I consider them like family that I could trust. I always have a great time, filled with laughter. Dr. Yoshikane's work is high quality, and every details, from their use of technology, super friendly knowledgeable, fun staff, to the ambiance. The best part is that my mouth is not swolen or feel that my face got punched from a couple of root canals. He is very gentle. He takes great pride in his work and treats his patients like the way he wants to be treat as a patient himself, with the utmost care. I trust him a ne his staff completely! They also work with me on prioritizing of what needs work on my teeth. Dr. Yoshikane and his team are a diamond in a ruff. Precious!"- J.S. / Yelp / Dec 08, 2019
"Dr. Yoshikane is amazing! I went in Friday morning to my dentist in south Orange County and found out that I needed a root canal. Since my general dentist does not do them. I was referred out to an endodontist who was very pushy and way overpriced. I called my husband in tears and he reached out to Dr. Yoshikane who totally took care of me. First of all it was Friday his day off and he said how quick can you get to my office. I went straight in. The office staff was warm and kind and did everything they could to help me be comfortable. Even when Dr. Yoshikane gave me shots to numb me I could barely feel it. I was in and out within 40 minutes. His service , dedication, perfectionism and commitment was amazing. He even reached out to me over the weekend to make sure I was doing okay. I would highly recommend him to any friends and family."- S.H. / Yelp / Oct 14, 2019
"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 staff continue to provide their utmost care with each visit. Their 1st class service is consistent. I have been coming here for 3.5 years. After the services and great quality work I get from Yoshikane, he and his team have earned my complete trust to care for family’s dental health. I transferred my kids’ dentist to Dr. Yoshikane because of of his quality work, great care, honesty and integrity. There is no pushy sales from him nor his staff. They genuinely care and take great pride in their work. If you are not a patient of Dr. Yoshikane and his team, you are missing out of quality work and care!"- J.S. / Yelp / Nov 09, 2020
