To create a positive experience for every patient, Dr. Anthony Yamada has chosen a team who share his passion for excellence.
All members of the team work together to make each patient's visit as pleasant and easy as possible. From clinical to business staff, each employee makes time to meet patients' needs. They answer questions, point them to more resources when needed and, for those individuals who are anxious during dental visits, offer reassurance when needed.
Unlike other dental practices, we include a periodontist on our team. Periodontists offer specialized care for diagnosing and treating gum disease, cosmetic problems and placing dental implants. Patients with complex cases often find that treatment by a dentist and periodontist working in partnership is the best approach.
We want our patients to think of the dental office as a friendly place that makes them smile. Our team makes that a reality.
