Kind Words From Our Patients

I have been a happy patient of Dr. Yamaguchi’s for over 16 years and HIGHLY recommend her! She is extraordinarily gentle, skilled, perfectionistic in her work, cutting-edge knowledgeable and gracious. A special word to those who are afraid of shots - she is absolutely MAGICAL; she administers them so expertly I never feel them. I have needed many crowns over the years, replacements of many mercy fillings received decades before going to Dental Arts & Wellness I have such confidence in Dr Yamaguchi’s professional judgment, quality of work and gentle touch that when I’m in the dental chair I am utterly relaxed (without sleep medication). Every crown and filling she has created has been perfect! In addition to the excellence of their work (which is most important in my opinion), Dr Yamaguchi and her team are wonderfully warm and caring. If you are feeling anxious and avoiding the dentist, you will be doing your health and smile a BIG favor in scheduling with Dr Manami Yamaguchi and her team at Dental Arts & Wellness!

Dr. Yamaguchi will be my dentist for as long as she practices. She gives comforting and practical advice. I had gum bleeding for years and she told me “you know, your GI tract is one long tube” and it clicked for me that If my gums were bleeding, the rest of my gut was probably inflamed as well. I switched to IF and Keto to experiment and I went from, in her words, “a blood bath” to NO BLEEDING for the first time in my adult life. Our health is all connected and I’m forever grateful. Also, she upgraded one of my crowns & it feels so much like a molar with all the right crevices. She knows what makes a smile beautiful and is an expert in her craft.

I suffered with psoriasis for 9 years, did a lot of cleansing and was psoriasis free for 3 years. Then I go to my old dentist to fix a cavity, and they removed some old amalgam and added new. After that day, my skin became super itchy and all my psoriasis came back been suffering with psoriasis another 3 years because during that time I had a baby and breastfed and I didn't want to do any detox till now. I decided then and there to get rid of all of my amalgam but do it correctly this time using a safe protocol. I searched around and found dental arts and wellness. I removed half of my amalgam and one week later without changing anything in my routine, the psoriasis on both knees and one elbow went away. I removed the other remaining half of amalgam and one week later the last of my psoriasis on the remaining elbow went away. I thought things usually get worse before they get better but in my case it got completely better. I am now 100% psoriasis free and I know it had to do with the removal of all the amalgam that the body absolutely doesn't like. This dentist is the best and her assistant is great too, I highly recommend everyone go here. I will be getting crowns here too because they make them BPA Free here.

I haven't been to a dentist in probably a decade. I'm young have always had nice gums. Well, I went in finally to see Dr. Yamaguchi and am thankful I did. I had a deep clean procedure and some laser therapy. Don't wait any longer this practice is nice and the staff are very friendly. I get text reminders and everything. Thanks again Dr. Yamaguchi and staff.
