Patient Reviews

She is amazing! I have terrible dental phobia and I don’t feel anxious when I see her. Thorough, professional, knowledgeable and just the nicest person!! You will love her!

-Kathy G.
Best dental experience I have had ever! Dr. Ishii spent a considerable amount of time in my initial exam for an implant and subsequent implant itself. Never waited at all for both of my visits.
