High quality, very respectful team work
Dr. Kawano didn't just fill a cavity. He analyzed my teeth and realized one lower tooth as too sharp and cut into the upper tooth so that over time a hole created in the upper tooth. He not only fixed the cavity, tricky as it was a back tooth, but he fixed the lower tooth and took pictures to show me what the damages were and what I can do moving forward to avoid the issues in the future. Clearly this was an issue for years but no other dentist corrected the teeth mismatch prior to today. He also expressed his view in a way that didn't make me feel like I failed in my hygiene. I truly appreciated the experience as I felt he validated me as a person and he respected his role to make my body better than it was. I highly recommend this dentist and his staff since I felt everyone wanted to take care of me.

Excellent professional and very personable towards me, the patient. Dr. is very informative about my check up and very patient on listening to my concerns. I feel absolutely comfortable with my new dentist. The doctors assistant’s were very kind and helpful. All took the time to let me know beforehand everything that was going to happen during my visit.

High quality service
I had a crown prep on one tooth and a build up on a second. Both Derek Kawano and Chrissy Bishop were very kind, and always asked how I was doing. The discussions with Derek were great ( informative to options. Thanks

Very friendly, and very professional!
I came to Dr. Kawano's office on a referral, first time yesterday, and I am very happy to report that it was the best dental visit for me in a long, long time! I was not bored with an dental office "routine"; I did not have to wait in the waiting room forever (you know how some offices are like that); Debbie in front office was wonderful; meeting Crissie in the back was also wonderful; easy, friendly personality, not overbearing, I felt like I've known her forever! Then, meeting Dr. Kawano was also very nice; very personable, knowledgeable and thorough with his care. Very easy to talk to, does not make you feel like you have the worst teeth on earth!!! And then I met Kim the hygienist-great lady! My teeth feel SO good after cleaning!!! Thank you! Overall, wonderful experience, did not disappoint, highly recommended!!! Thank you guys, see you soon again!

Professional and informative
I am going to need a lot of dental work. Dr. Kawano and Crissie were extremely supportive and informative. They actually listened to my questions and concerns and were never judgmental. Debbie in the front office has been amazing while she and I both tried for nearly 2 weeks to get dental records from another uncooperative dentist's office. I was skeptical due to some bad past dentistry, but I am impressed.

I was impressed the procedure only took 30 minutes. I budgeted at least an hour and a half for the visit. I also like how the numbing process has improve over the years. I can remember large (or what appeared to be large) needles to numb the area. This was back in the 1960s & 70s when I was a patient of Dr. Kawano;s great uncle. Staff is always cheerful and pleasant.
