    Univ. of the Pacific, Dugoni School of Dentistry
    Their new facility is downtown right next door to the 5th and Mission street garage, so parking is easy. I���ve been going there for 6+ years, and every two years or so I get a new student dentist assigned. She did a thorough teeth cleaning, and exam. I like that they explain things, and have some of the latest technology. For example, a device that senses how much bacteria is in the mouth. Everything is supervised by an instructor. This adds some time to the appointment, because you must wait for the instructor to come by. But I feel comfortable everything is carefully done, aiming for high-quality work. My dentist replaced an old filling, which had a crack. I had to come back another day to have the filling done, since time was short the first day. I have dental insurance, so I only paid a small copay of $20. Checkups (appointments) come every 6 months. Sometimes they aren���t so responsive between appointments. I wanted to check if my x-rays had arrived, but still haven���t heard back.

    Kami, Dr. Barry G.
    It went very well. I was able to get a same day appointment. Dr. Kami, his staff, & the hygienist Ariel were all very lovely. Mr. Kami's bedside manner is A+, & he has a very calm & lovely demeanor. I plan to go to him for my next dental cleaning.

    Boriskin, Dr. Joel M.
    First off, Dr Boriskin retired a couple of years ago, the current dentist is Dr Yeh.
    My wife and I have been with this practice for decades.  Dr Sosin, who we loved, retired and handed off to Dr Boriskin, who has handed off to Dr Yeh.  We are very pleased with Dr Yeh.  Besides just being a nice guy, he does careful, quality work, and explains everything he is doing.  I have seen him for two or three fairly minor fillings now and have been well pleased.  Most recently, I called in two days ago because an ancient filling had fallen out.  I got an appointment for assessment the next day, and it turned out he had time to fix it the same day.  Next day service - pretty good.  Our daughter sees him too and takes her kids (our grandkids) there.  Recently one kid took a baseball in the face.  The first call was to Dr Yeh, who came in with an assistant outside of normal hours to assess.  Our daughter thinks he is a saint.  The support staff - assistants, hygienists, office staff - are terrific too.  They have always handled insurance and payment issues smoothly.

    K. Michael Murphy and Associates
    I really, really disliked this office. First of all there was the constant lecturing and scaremongering from the dentists and hygienists. I'm not a child. Just give me the information. It's absurd to talk to a grown man in the condescending way that they did. Secondly, they were constantly trying to upsell me, constantly recommending other procedures. The schedule on which they wanted my teeth cleaned was absurd (every three months!) and every time I went in there was something else they wanted me to do. They also tried to sell me a water-flossing kit right there in their office! Multiple times! That's some used-car-salesman type stuff right there. Medical practitioners need to understand that we trust them to use their best judgment re: what we really require, and that they shouldn't abuse that trust by recommending unnecessary things. I also constantly experienced confusion with them on the billing. Every time I went in, I wanted to know beforehand how much it would be, and every time when I came out it would be more than they had said it would be. They were always like, "Oh, that quote we gave you was just for half your mouth, but since we did your whole mouth, it's twice as much." Ugh, what a terrible place. Do not go there.
    (Only plus side was that it was a very clean office with lots of fancy equipment in it. If you're a hypochondriac and are not price-sensitive, then maybe this is the place for you!)

    James T. White DDS & David C. Yongue DDS
    I have been going to them for a while now. They are very professional. They are very good at what they do and I can really rely on them. Scheduling an appointment is fine. The office is like a home; nothing fancy but just right for me.

    Eckhard, Dr. Daniel C.
    He is wonderful and we have been going there for years. My whole family goes to them. The staff is very professional and the office is efficiently run. They are very personable, sympathetic, and I just love them.

    Andrew Rowe DDS
    He is very good and I highly recommend him. He is very busy sometimes that it is hard to get an appointment. He is very personable and helps with what will be done. I have been seeing him for about 2 years. His staff is great. He explains all the procedures. I have never had any problem with. I had to call him once to find out what my part of the bill was.

    Wong, Dr. Terence C.
    Dr Wong is the dentist for my 95 year old father. All of the office staff we have dealt with are very kind and accomodating. He is wheelchair bound so they are very helpful in getting him into the dental chair and comfortable. The hygienists are very thorough and efficient. Dr Wong is very kind and understanding of the issues of the elderly. He is very conservative in his treatments and does not push things that he feels aren't necessary. He is always conscious of my father's limitations and age. He oftens mentions his elderly father and treats my father as he would his own. We are very happy we found Dr. Wong.

    Aaron Escalante DDS
    I was seen on time by the dental assistant who did a series of full mouth xrays. I was then given a thorough examination by Dr Escalante. Dr. Escalante is always friendly and kind. I have been seeing him for the past 12 years. I was then seen by the dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth. She was very efficient and gentle. She is always on the look out for any problems with my teeth and has often caught things that should be taken care of before they turned into something larger.

    Haynes, Dr. Bryan D.
    It went fine with Dr. Bryan D. Haynes. I have been going to him for probably about 12 years. I have used him because I have another dental plan. It gave me a discount so I used him for that. I just kept using him because he was convenient. I trust them.
