    I feel so lucky to have met Dr. Tamura. I found out after 25 years of seeing my dentist that he never took x-rays or told me about any of my dental problems. Dr. Tamura has explained everything thoroughly and I five star everything he has done. He is amazing and I am happy to have him as my dentist.

    My regular cleaning following a crown a month ago! My only complaint is that if the lab makes a mistake ( wrong size crown) I have to wait yet another 2 weeks; their error, they should move me forward, no?

    From the informed, efficient and friendly office staff, to the hygienists and Dr T himself, I can't say enough good things. When I first came to Dr T, my teeth were a mess, the result of years of second-rate care. Now, routine check-ups are consistently trouble-free: the work's so good that the only person who suffers is Dr T himself as I haven't needed work in over three years! The price of being so good is success and happy patients!

    Each time I visit Dr. Tamura, Shauna, and Myeisha, I feel safe and completely informed when making decisions regarding my dental care. They explain everything clearly and make my dental treatment easy to understand. They take great care of their patients, and I couldn't be happier with choosing Dr. Tamura as my dentist.
