I had a teeth cleaning appointment two days ago and the dental assistant who worked on me was nice, but very hard on my teeth. I already have weak enamel, but she was being very heavy handed with the metal tools and scraped both my teeth and my gums too much. When I said "Ouch" after she scraped my gum, she tried to act like it was because I didn't floss enough. My teeth felt fine prior to the appointment, but after ward two of my teeth felt sore and were much more sensitive to cool water. I am no longer Dr. Ohira's patient because of this experience and would not recommend them.
As a military kid moving around I've had 20 Dentists in my life. Most of which were private practice dentist. Dr. Ohira is by far the best Dentist I've had. He is very approachable and willing to go the extra mile to make it affordable (e.g., modifying my old mouth guard after I had a dental filling so that I didn't have purchase a new one). He is awesome!
