Transformative Dental Experiences

Dr. Okui changed my mind about so many things with my teeth. I went from some pretty bad looking teeth so getting a few replaced. I also got a root canal from Dr. Tatsuta. Both are excellent. I never am uncomfortable. They make me want to keep up with my dental health.

Painless, Expert Endodontics

My experience was outstanding. My options for treatment were discussed in a way that allowed me to make an informed decision. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. Dr. Okui did an excellent job – what a wonderful professional! He called me the same evening to see how I was doing. His office called the next day to see if everything was going well and if I had any questions. All in all, this was an excellent experience.
