We build lifelong relationships with our patients, and promise you’ll be treated with kindness and respect throughout your appointment. Our team of skilled dental professionals are here to handle all your dental care needs, whether you need a routine checkup, teeth cleaning, a root canal, oral surgery, or want to improve your smile’s appearance with cosmetic dentistry. We’re also available for emergency treatment as needed.

I was traveling for work and Christmas when my crown fell out unexpectedly. I was nervous handling this situation when away from my primary dentist, but I knew it had to be corrected immediately. When I called, reception was warm, friendly and very efficient. The person I spoke with remember the minute details of the conversation and repeated key points back to me, which validated I selected the right place. Once I arrived, the paperwork was ready and it was easy to completed with Marlo. Erica took me to get X-Rays, and she took the time to hear what occurred as well as get to know me. We had very personable conversation until I met the dentist. I have a wonderful dentist in my home state, and I was surprised how utterly fantastic Dr. Nishikawa was. She introduced herself and efficiently began reviewing my situation. She made me laugh and had a wonderful, calming manner. From beginning to end, my stressful experience was so comfortable and personable that I saved their contact information to see them next time I’m in town. I HIGHLY recommend this dental office and dentist.

I had a crown done today. I was so worried it was going to hurt as I have not had any dental work done for years. The dentist was great. I felt not one bit of pain. This place really lives up to its name😀

The doctors and the assistants here are so incredibly empathic and understanding of people with dental anxiety. I used to avoid the dentist's office like the plague but the staff here has made feel comfortable enough to actually show up for my cleanings and exams. I always leave feeling like my smile is cleaner and brighter.
