I just had a replacement crown and a brand new crown installed at this office and, as always, the experience was a breeze. These are the nicest, most considerate, and most professional dentists I have had in 76 years of having teeth. I would recommend this office with absolutely no hesitation.

Front and back office staff are warm, friendly and professional. I have routine dental cleaning and any other work done here. I won’t go anywhere else. Dr Pakune is gentle and thorough. I highly recommend her for families especially children.

I went to Dr. Paukune for a consultation after having various complications and difficulties with previous dental work. Dr. Paukune is very patient friendly and was very concerned for my well-being due to ongoing dental issues. Her assistant, Michelle(?), was very helpful as well. The front desk woman, sorry I forgot your name, was very helpful on the phone and in the office.

My first visit was very good. I have been living in Green Valley for over ten years and gave up on finding a GV dentist and continued going to California to a dentist whom I like a great deal. But the current travel situation (June of 2020) made me want find a good local dentist and I think I have succeeded. I’m very happy. Thanks.

I was SO blessed when I found Dr. Paukune 14 years ago, and I have referred ALL my friends and family to her. We have ALL been very happy as she is thorough, gentle, professional as is her staff. Office is immaculate, has the latest technology, very convenient as centrally located midtown, and I just can't say enough NICE things about her and her staff!
