From Our Patients:

"Fabulous. I had a great experience. Great friendly staff and very caring and thoughtful. Dr. Yamada did an awesome job to ensure that I had a good dental experience. I've already recommended Dr. Yamada to my co-workers."   Angelic S
"They were the kindest, most gentle dentists I have ever taken my kids to. My kids were so happy with them that they keep asking when their next appointment is."   Asherdee S
"Dr Yamada is a great professional! He takes the time to explain what the problem is and what options are avilable. He won't push you to do anything that is not needed just to make a buck. He even does the cleaning himself and he does a geat job! I don't usually like going to the dentist, but with him I felt comfortable. Unfortunately I had to move out of state and can no longer see him. I haven't found anyone like him where I currently live. I would definetly recommend him to family and friends!"   Dohee K
"They were great! I really enjoyed my visits. Dr. Yamada was very knowledgeable and kind. "   Danielle T
"I still go to Dr. Lem every 6 months. I am very happy with your referral. Thank you! "   Marla W
