Emergency Dental Care Reviews
"Absolutely the best dental experience ever! Traveling for business in Orange County, I found myself having a serious dental emergency in the middle of the night. I found these folks after a little online research and called at 7:00 AM after they opened. They told me to come in right away and they would work me into the schedule. As suspected, I had a pretty serious infection and needed a root canal. Within an hour or so I walked out of there feeling great. Everyone from reception, dental assistants to Dr. Yoshikane was awesome! Friendly, professional, caring and compassionate. Reasonably priced, super clean, just everything about this awesome place and staff was remarkable!"- J.K. / Yelp / Mar 06, 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.

"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
