Dr. Yokoyama has done two implants for me and I have been incredibly impressed with his skill, demeanor and great office staff! Besides his skill, he is very friendly and a pleasure to visit. He got me in immediately when I had an oral trauma. I just can't say enough nice things. I highly recommend Dr. Yokoyama!

I came in hurting and left relieved. Dr Y and his staff removed two teeth and loads of infection and prepared me for bone grafts and implants. I was very concerned having had bad experiences in the past with dentists. I was pleasantly surprised when I was met with assurance, expertise, expediency, and genuine compassion. Dr Y is the best, and I trust him wholeheartedly. We are still working through the implant process, but I am confident and no longer anxious about what I will encounter. The staff is wonderful too—I highly recommend!
