What our patients are saying...

Dr. Yokoyama, a rare practitioner of holistic dentistry, uses state of the art X-ray equipment to minimize exposure to radiation (1/10th of normal dental x-rays), a strict mercury removal protocol (goggles for you, full x-ray apron with neck piece, added oxygen in the room, dental dam, vacuum, etc.), laser equipment to reduce gum growth interfering with cavity removal, and a lap top computer to show you your x-rays and additional photographs of your teeth so that together you can prioritize needs and explore options for addressing failing root canals, cavities, amalgam embedded in the gums, etc. He is a kind and compassionate dentist who listens well, responds thoughtfully, and then gets to work — gently but with a laser-like focus. I learned about Dr. Yokoyama here on Yelp, and figured with that many good reviews the guy must be pretty good. Not pretty good — great.

Love this place, which is weird to say about a dentist office and I have seen ALOT of dentist since having my daughter a few years ago. I just had my teeth cleaned there today by Heather who is amazing and so nice and caring. The dentist even dropped in to say hi and ask how I was doing he is very compassionate and really cares about his patients. They just moved offices and the new space is nothing short of beautiful. Its so clean and they take being holistic to a whole new level, you really feel like like they are helping you there. The front office is great and really friendly. I bounce back from orange county and LA but am going to make sure I only see this dentist.

Dr. Yokoyama is the best dentist I have ever been to, and I have been to several. His staff is extremely friendly and his services are reasonably priced. Unlike many dentists I have been to, he never turns on the hard sell for unnecessary procedures. I like this dental practice so much in fact, I have moved from Los Angeles to New York, and I still come to see him when I am in LA on a business trip or otherwise.

I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Yokoyama and his team. I came at the suggestion of my naturopath as part of my overall healing process (dealing with auto-immune and toxicity issues). He and his team were attentive, informed, considerate and took the precautions I felt necessary to ensure my safety. I am so grateful to have been introduced to Dr. Yokoyama....he has literally changed my life for the better.
