A simple Google search ("best Oakland dentist" or something like that) brought me to Uptown Dental and I could not be happier. I was looking to change providers because I wanted to find a smaller practice (my previous provider was a large office with multiple dentists) as I prefer to see the same dentist on an on-going basis. Going to the dentist can be stressful, and seeing someone who, over time, has gotten to know you and is hands-on familiar with your history makes a difference. Happily I have discovered Uptown Dental. My first time experience here has been fantastic and I was here for some not-so-fun things: a deep cleaning and a crown. I received excellent, considerate and compassionate care from Dr. Thomas and his wonderful staff (Kateryn and Ana). There are other good things: Dr. Thomas is UCSF-trained (this is a Big Deal and means you could not be in better hands), proximity to BART, and it's located in one of Oakland's cool neighborhoods. If you are reading this as part of a search for a dentist, look no further --- I highly recommend Dr. Thomas.

Excellent, Professional with great customer service
Customer Service is a big deal breaker for me. My first meeting with Dr. Thomas was professional, courteous, and efficient. I believe Dr. Thomas will exceed all of his expectations with the customer service I received. Plus he has a sense of humor and that always helps!

First time with Dr. Thomas
I used to go to Dr. Chan(retired) and I was a little afraid to go to a new dentist however Dr. Thomas explained everything and I felt very welcomed. Very friendly environment!

Gentle & Friendly!
Chris was so gentle! He would ask me to move my head so that he had the proper angle to work. I think that’s smart. He always said, “thank you,” when I complied. Hehe I am used to a bit of manhandling - it’s something I am accustomed to and understand is a part of working in someone’s mouth, but I did not experience that with Chris! He explained things in simple and understandable ways, but without any pressure and judgement. He might actually get me to start flossing!

First Dental Visit with new Dentist
I must say that my dental experience with Dr. Thomas was actually quite pleasant, if you can call going to a dentist pleasant! He took the necessary time to get to know me, which adds a nice personal touch. I have been a patient of his predecessor, Dr. Victor Chan, since 1988 and he was a great dentist. It's always hard to get used to a new medical/dental practitioner. And, especially the dentist, which is not an easy office to visit. I actually felt very relaxed while he conducted my dental exam. I always feel that if I am relaxed (in anything that is not exactly fun), I always get a positive feedback and actually don't dread it nearly as much. My exam went well and no major problems have arisen, for which I am glad! I would definitely recommend Dr. Thomas to anyone I know who may be looking for a dentist, much as I did for Dr. Chan over the last 30 years.

This is the most comfortable and accommodating dental office I have ever experienced. The staff is warm and friendly as well as professional, and Dr. Chan is knowledgeable, thoughtful, caring and gentle.
