What our patients say
Thank you very much to Doctor Yamaguchi... My teeth had a lot of mercury fillings and were leaking, gently she took care of them and they look wonderful. The staff is noteworthy as well because they are rather attentive and precise. The front desk women are always looking for ways to accommodate the financial end with programs they offer. Please try Dr. Yamaguchi you'll smile bigger...
Meeting Dr. Yamaguchi, DMD and her talented staff was a wonderful experience. I would say that this dental experience exceeded my expectations!!! Dr. Yamaguchi is both compassionate and cutting edge. She is a front runner in the use of laser treatment to help end the progression of periodontal disease and through her continued education, Dr. Yamaguchi consistently offers her patients choices in current up-to-the-minute methodologies. Dr. Yamaguchi, DMD and her staff, with big smiles, offer up their talent, education, patience, and heart each day. Their devotion makes a visit to Dental Arts & Wellness feel more like a happy hour or meeting friends at Starbucks!! And you often leave with a goodie bag of dental swag!!! I believe with this team, I will be able to keep my pearly whites forever! Smile
"I would just like to share my experience. I had discovered that I was having health issues due to my Mercury fillings. I started to research ways to get them removed. I found a few practitioners in Oregon that followed the “Smart Protocol”. Removing Mercury fillings can be very dangerous because of the mercury vapor. I consider myself a “difficult customer” because I had lots of questions and was very nervous about getting them removed. When I went in for my initial visit I had 3 pages of questions to ask Dr. Yamaguchi. Dr. Yamaguchi spent over an hour with me detailing the procedure and asking more specifically about all the health issues I was having. I genuinely felt like she cared about my health. At the end of her talking about the procedure (an hour later), I pulled out my questions specific to the “Smart Protocol” and started to read down them to ask her questions, I realized she answered every single one before I even had a chance to ask her any. I was really impressed, I walked in there nervous and a bit scared, I walked out feeling confident and excited to get my mercury fillings removed. After leaving the office, Dr. Yamaguchi wanted me to do a specific test independent of her office to check for allergies to any material that would be replacing my mercury fillings. After I got the results and sent them back to the office, she called me the next morning personally (I have never had a doctor call me personally, its just a nurse or front desk usually) and told me she went over 70 pages that night of literature to select the best option to replace my mercury since I have so many sensitivities. I was again really impressed that she took the extra time to do this. I cannot see any other health practitioner in this field or any other field going the extra mile like she did. On the day of the removal, everything went better than expected. She followed the Smart Protocol to the T. After the removal we checked our bitewing xray to double check every spec of the amalgam was removed. I had a great experience and will be a life long customer."
