This level of trust is not earned lightly; it is a direct reflection of the quality, precision, and care we put into every treatment. We see each referral as an acknowledgment of our dedication to excellence in dental care.

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.
