Since the pandemic, many people have postponed their routine check-ups or dental services due to various concerns and I was one of them. However, my recent visits have changed my perspective. I was really impressed by the safety protocols in place. Dr. Frame’s office has gone above and beyond, and the level of precautionary details shows that “Patient Safety” is not just a bottle of hand sanitizer in this office. They designed a workflow that really integrated the hygienic aseptic process into every step of patient care: When I arrived, the temperature was taken and a list of questions was asked to reduce the chance of admitting high-risk patients. The waiting room and the hallway are never crowded. And every time I arrive and leave the office, I noticed other patients leave and arrive, which tells me that this office is controlling the patient flow to reduce the number of patients at any given time so that social distancing is much easier. All office staff wears masks, chairs and glasses are sanitized in-between patients, shared cabinets are no longer used, personal items are placed on countertops that are wiped clean each time used, mouthwashes are provided before and after the services, and hand sanitizers are provided on your way out. I appreciate the level of detail and thoughtfulness they have shown and not to mention the amount of extra work this office has put in place in order to provide everyone with peace of mind for each visit.

Am always nervous when visiting a dentist due to childhood phobias of the drilling and such. This was my first visit to Dr. Alan Frame’s dentist office which was highly recommended by a very good friend. A friend who’s never failed me in all of his recommendations. True enough my very good friend again comes through. The dentist visit went extremely well. Dr. Alan and his staff made me feel very comfortable and relaxed. The dental work done was painless which included a root canal, etc. I, highly recommend Dr. Alan Frame for anyone looking for a dentist

Lovely staff, beautiful office space, and exceptional dental care. I always feel as if I’m off to the spa as opposed to the dentist for some self care …. and with a beautiful smile no less! I highly recommend Dr. Frame and his talented technicians to anyone looking for the best.

Each visit is pleasant with Dr. Frame and his staff. I choose to take a little further drive for myself and my three boys because we enjoy going to our appts. Julie, the office Manager makes us feel at home the minute we walk in all the way until we are scheduling our next visit. We love the the state of the art office and equipment as well as every one of Dr. Frames employees! We are definitely life time patients!

I went for deep cleaning appointment today. Had a wonderful experience, no pain at all!!! All thanks to Dr Alisha. In my life of (29 years) I had never been to a dentist before. Recently started having some sensitivity issues so visited Dr Alan Frame and the team. My overall experience in my consultation appointment was very delightful. Everyone was taking extra care of me as I was very nervous and scared. In this consultation appointment, I was told that I need a few things fixed. One of which was that deep cleaning was needed for my teeth. Watching all the youtube videos related to this really made me nervous. Today, when the day finally arrived, I was getting even more scared. But Dr Alisha calmed me. She explained me really well, my options of how to go about deep cleaning such that I would not feel any pain. And throughout the deep cleaning session, she was very gentle and continuously checking up with me and encouraging me to make sure I was doing okay. I was really impressed by her, and I was happy walking out, as there wasn’t any pain that I experienced. This appointment really made me lose my fear of dentist to a great extent. Thanks Dr Alisha, and Dr Alan Frame and the team.

I started with Dr. Frame recently when I needed to have a tooth extraction in an emergency situation. I have had a fear of dentist since the beginning of time and this was no different. I had not been to a dentist since the age of 18. Dr. Frame is the most down to earth, tell you like it is and caring dentist I have ever encountered. He is very good at what he does and tells you to simply raise your hand if you want him to stop. I like how he tells you everything he is going to do and what to expect. Super great Dentist!! His office staff is very informative and will walk you though what your medical insurance is and will pay for, which is helpful in making an informed decision. Additionally, this office will not pressure you into an up-sell for services you do not need. If you want a place where you will be treated properly and fairly, well then this is the place for you. I will be going to Dr. Frame from now on. For the men out there, Dr. Frame’s staff is very pretty as well. Jason Liebig

I have seen Dr. Frame since he took over the practice in 2001.  I’ve actually been coming to this same office since 1974.  Dr. Frame and his staff are outstanding!  The hygenists and office staff are always very pleasant and friendly.  Julie and Wendy in the front office have always been very helpful and accommodating.   I’ve had crowns and old fillings replaced and general cleanings/oral care – all without incident.  I highly recommend Dr. Frame and have done so personally many times.

I visited Dr. Alan Frame for the first time yesterday and he filled a cavity that was really bothering me. Now I can’t stop looking at my teeth in the mirror! It was on my front teeth! He did an amazing job! You would never know there was a cavity there before. His entire staff were all so friendly and professional and they made me feel at ease; and the receptionist was so sweet! They also cleaned my sons teeth and he loved Dr. Frame and his staff as well! Also, I feel that Dr. Frame really knows his craft! He’s been practicing for 25 years! I want to thank him and his entire staff for welcoming us! I highly recommend Dr. Alan Frame! We have found our new dentist!!!

I should have posted two years ago when I took my 85-year-old mom into see Dr. Alan Frame the first time. My wife and her 97-year mom are long-time patients. But today, I am posting for the first time as a few days ago my mom had an urgent care need. I called, and we were in – That easy. Well, not completely as my mom is in a wheelchair, which didn’t matter as their new dental offices with ample parking made this easy. As did the staff. And a root canal later, the pain was relieved. I did not know Dr. Frame could perform such procedures. Now I know there are different types of root canals. Mom is happy, we are happy, so I am finally posting a long overdue recommendation, with 5 stars. Thank you, Julie for getting us in so quickly. I am Mike Angles of west San Jose.

Barry and Carol M. from Los Gatos, CA (Source: Yelp)


We are very pleased with the dental services we have received from Dr. Frame and his excellent staff.  We have been going to this office from the early days with Dr. Weiner (more than 20 years ago).  The office is very professional, helpful, calming if you are nervous, concerned about patient comfort, and thoughtful in the way that they provide services.  Their prices are comparable to the prices we check with other offices.  Many, many of our friends and co-workers also go to Dr. Frame and his staff, and are very pleased with the results. Plus they are very helpful with insurance filings.  Try them for your check-ups, teeth cleaning, fillings, teeth straightening, bonding, or other work you may need.  You will not be disappointed.

Jennifer M. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


One of my biggest fears in the dentist, but I actually trust Alan Frame’s office. It is the nicest facility I have seen, they are very professional, and have very updated equipment. I will not go to another dentist anymore. I also love my dental hygienist, Belin. They call to follow-up and are very communicative.

Dr. Alan Frame and his team helped me with my problem in a very prompt manner. They conduct themselves in a very professional yet friendly manner. Their new offices are comfortable, well equipped and very sanitary. I came in for an evaluation and an estimate but they were able to help me solve my problem that same day. Friendly staff. They explained everything very clearly. Highly recommend this place.

This is my 2nd review of Alan L. Frame, DDS I was sitting on my couch and eating lunch when i unexpectedly chipped my FRONT TOOTH. I was not in any pain and no nerves were exposed. I immediately called to set an appointment to fix it. Julie set me up with an appointment the next day. Super great customer service. The next day I was received by Belen remembered me and welcomed me back. April brought me her station and she also remembered me and we had a pleasant chat asI was sitting in the massage chair and Netflix was put on for me (again, AMAZING customer service) . I was in and out of the office within 45 minutes and the experience was great overall. I ALWAYS recommend Dr. Frame to all of my co workers and friends.

Fantastic dentist, and office.  I just had my teeth cleaned during covid, and felt very safe because apart from all the regular safety procedures, each station is located in a room with a door, and has a HEPA filter; you are nowhere near other patients.  Dr. Frame and his team did an amazing job making me feel safe, and of course, the cleaning was excellent as always.

Dr. Frame has been our family’s dentist since he started his practice. He is always meticulous, skilled and makes his patients feel relaxed and welcome. Going to this office can actually be enjoyable! His staff members are highly qualified, appointments run on time and everything is squeaky clean and sanitized.

Marissa B. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just can’t thank Julie the office manager and Dr. Frame for their quick and caring response to an emergency that I had with my daughter, it was after 8 pm, I called the office and got a response from Julie immediately, they were both on stand by  as I was in the emergency room to see if I had to bring my daughter in to try and save a tooth
Luckily I didn’t need to bring her in that night, but was at the office the next morning. I appreciate the quick response and the sincere concern they both had, the willingness to drop what they were doing if they needed to, to meet me at the office, that’s what I call dedication and customer service.
Thank you Dr. Frame and your wonderful team

I really enjoy the staff, the location and the practice! Dr Frame is the best dentist I’ve had in my adult life. It’s very modern and clean with massage chairs and TVs in each room to help you relax. The staff and Dr explain everything and make you feel at ease. Dr frame is very personable and genuine. He answers questions before, during, and after the procedure to help make you feel at ease. He’s got a client for as long as he has a practice from me.

I come from a family of dentists. It took me awhile to find one I liked after my family members no longer practiced. Dr. Frame is always very attentive and listens. My last visit was for a cleaning and his excellent hygienist found a chipped molar. Dr. Frame fixed the molar without any discomfort. My bite is spot on. I highly recommend him and his whole team, especially Julie who is amazing with customer care and support.

Joseph E. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Frame is one of a kind. As a patient, I could not expect better treatment from my dentist. Dr. Frame and his staff are extremely professional, caring, and friendly. When I sit in that chair, the doctor and his assistants, take extreme measures to make me comfortable. They prepare and inform me about each and every step they take. Give breaks and always ask if I am comfortable. If you are looking for the best and most professional dentist, someone who is trustworthy, friendly, caring, with a smooth touch (very important when working on your teeth), An awesome staff, Dr. Alan Frame is your choice!!!

Elizabeth U. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Frame off and on for over 10 years. I hate having to go anywhere else – only forced to when insurance changes. However, his office is willing to work out payment. They educate patients on dental health and the best way to pay the bills to ensure ongoing dental health. As far as treatment goes, Alan Frame is very knowledgeable and I have complete confidence in him and his staff. He hires good people who are caring and highly skilled. I took my teen-aged son to him recently for a second opinion. I am forever thankful that I did so! Dr. Frame spent time with us and addressed our concerns in his naturally easy-going, professional manner. Whereas the other dentist was going to charge me over $2K for a minor biopsy! Dr. Frame’s office gave me a reality check for the procedure. The office is newly remodeled and so inviting and comfortable – don’t hesitate to see this Dentist. I highly recommend the office.

I trust Dr. Frame and have always been satisfied with the service that I have received from him and his staff. I am a longtime patient and I love his new office. I recently had a very good experience with Alysha the new hygienist. I would recommend this dental office to all my friends and family!

Dr. Frame and his staff are incredible. Always so friendly. Even my 5 year old enjoys going to the dentist. I also did Invisalign and am so glad I did. Dr. frame made sure I was completely happy with the results and got me the smile I wanted when 3 other places told me I couldn’t achieve what I wanted without taking out more teeth. He is knowledgeable, and listens. The offices are comfortable and clean. Since Covid they take special care to ensure safety. Can’t recommend enough.

Drake L. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend Dr. Frame! From the start the young ladies at the front desk were very professional! Very welcoming and a lot of energy. After a very short wait time they brought me back to the room where I was going to be getting my teeth cleaned and after my initial inspection they informed me it would be a few minutes before I could get my Botox shots which I didn’t have a problem with. Instead of me sitting there on my phone they handed me the remote to the tv and I was watching Netflix passing the time which was very cool. Lastly for my Botox shots, the previous dentist I went to decided to go deep sea fishing in my cheek with the large needle full of Botox causing me to pass out. Dr. Frame was very gentle and I barely even felt the needle. Quick, easy, and painless! Like I said before highly recommend this place for all ages!

Ali Q. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Frame is the best. He and his staff are always so nice and always see me right on time. I never have to spend time in the waiting room past my appointment start time. Their office is always clean and well kept. Each chair softly massages your back while you’re getting your work done and there’s a personal TV where you can watch whatever you want on Netflix. It even swivels to the ceiling when they lean your chair back so you can still watch. It makes going to the dentist completely bearable.

Katie T. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m incredibly impressed by how professional, efficient, and caring Dr. Frame and his staff are! I am a college student and recently had a problem with severe pain around a filling my regular dentist had done for me – being originally from SoCal, I couldn’t see my primary dentist and needed to find someone local, and quickly. After several failed calls to different local dentists, I found Dr. Frame’s practice and called about an urgent same-day appointment. The staff are incredibly helpful and understanding. Julie could tell I was in a lot of pain and found a time slot between two appointments when I could be seen – she also told me their website offers electronic registration for new patients to complete beforehand, which saved me a lot of time when I arrived. Dr. Frame was very friendly, explained the possible causes and treatments for me clearly and simply, and did what he could to fix/reshape my filling very quickly. I’m already feeling much better, and was in and out of his office in under a half hour! I’m glad to have found such a caring and efficient practice so close to campus. I’ll definitely be returning for future treatment while I live in the area, and recommending his services to other out-of-town students I know looking for local healthcare options.

Amanda S. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Frame is the best dentist I have been to by far.  I have been seeing him for several years now and he and his office staff have always been wonderful. In the past, I was always nervous to visit the dentist but Alan is very friendly, professional and always makes me feel comfortable. If you are someone who is hesitant to visit the dentist he will change your mind upon your first visit. I am very happy to recommend Dr. Frame. 🙂

Dr. Frame Review 8/29/2012 Ever since I was added to my stepmom’s dental insurance when I was twelve, I have never had a problem with any of the technicality behind Dr. Frame’s dentistry practice. I am not really much for complaints as it is like the rest of the people who posted some negative reviews on his practice and to that extent I would like to say that I have never once been treated poorly, offended or swindled for his own personal gain with any extra money towards unnecessary fixes to my teeth by either him or his staff. So far I have received numerous routine exam check-ups, cavity-fillings, cleanings and crown replacement from him. During each visit, Dr. Frame has always been extremely knowledgeable, offering great service and great work at a reasonable cost. He is always prepared in case of an emergency visit like when I busted my front tooth in half from falling on a treadmill (not my fault). He is always in good spirits with an up-beat attitude and has the friendliest personality I have ever seen. Dr. Frame treats his clients more like best friends rather than just patients who he makes money off of, and tries to do what is best for his patients in any situation. He really goes out of his way and tries to get to know his patients as well as he can, and it irritates me that some people are bagging on him about how he approaches his dentistry. He is always up front about the procedures he feels are necessary and always has laid-out options for everything, so don’t be frustrated with costs because dental work will most of the time be expensive, that’s life! In regards to the facility, the office is located off of Homestead, right next door to the court house, so yes it is pretty cherry and not a hole in the wall. Since I’ve been going there, it has never once been uncomfortable for me. I dig the chairs there a lot, every time I sit I feel like I am sitting on a cloud and the place is always clean to the bone. The only future problem I see with the dentistry there, even though I haven’t really had a problem with it, is the scheduling. They are pretty much swamped or booked all the time with appointments, so it can or could be hard making an appointment for yourself. However, being as much of a flexible person as I am, I have never really had a problem with any of that. Overall, I recommend him for anyone out there looking for a new dentist because he is that good. The great service and staff is worth every penny. Nothing more than 5 stars for this good sir and the enjoyable experience you will have from every visit. Sincerely, Dominic Campbell

My teenager was looking for teeth whitening (post braces removal) along with requiring new retainers. I called and was able to get an appointment the same week. We arrived and the COVID protocols were quick and easy. The office is beautiful and my teenager was quite impressed! Dr. Frame was able to engage and connect with my daughter making her feel at ease. The technology is state of the art and makes everything fast and convenient, paired with Julie and April providing us with great customer service!! It was an efficient visit and my teenager says she never going anywhere else! Thank you to Dr. Frame, and his awesome team! We’ll be seeing you soon!!

This was honestly the best experience I’ve had at a dentist before. I just changed insurances so I was already pretty stressed with trying to find a new dentist not knowing how it would be, and they really helped make it so easy on me. Dr. Frame really takes the time to evaluate everything without cutting corners. He did multiple things to check gum/teeth health that I’ve never had done anywhere else. He also does a great job of talking through what he’s doing while he’s working on your teeth. It’s so easy to see that he loves what he does and puts a lot of thought and effort into his work. After I had my teeth evaluated, they took the time to print out a sheet showing my what work I would need done, what the total prices are, what insurance will probably cover, and an estimate of what I would pay out of pocket. Dental work anywhere can be really pricey, but they help section everything out where it’s easy to digest. They also offer different kinds of payment plans if needed. Then I got a root canal a couple days after my first appointment and it was the easiest root canal I’ve ever had hahah There wasn’t any pain, I got to watch Netflix while it was happening, and Dr. Frame was really considerate of how I was feeling during the whole thing. AND on top of that, he called to check up on how my tooth was feeling later on! So yeah, I wrote a lot but it was a really great experience and I plan on keeping him as my dentist. PS – They also take your temperature at the door and ask a series of covid related screening questions. I appreciate them going the extra mile to maintain a healthy environment.

Dr Frame is the nicest dentist I have ever had.  He is accommodating, kind and makes sure you are well taken care of.  You get to watch your favorite shows or hear him talk about fascinating topics while he’s working on your teeth.  He has a beautiful office with kind and professional staff who always glad to assist with questions.  I highly recommend Dr Frame!

Mariah M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Frame for a very long time and have always been taken care of. Especially during this time, they have gone out of their way to get me in and out for cleanings while taking the safety precautions needed. Always done in a timely manner and the staff is consistently so sweet and helpful. They take cleanliness very seriously, which makes me feel safe in their care. Julie is one of my favorites, always happy to be greeted by her!

Casey R. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m 8 weeks in with my Invisalign treatment and have been very impressed with Dr. Frame’s office. His office staff is very efficient (shout out to his office manager, Julie!) and Dr. Frame is awesome. He has top of the line equipment and an excellent staff that is uber efficient and really friendly. Two of my colleagues recommended me to Dr. Frame; I’m glad they did!

Jojie Alvarade (Source: Google)


Dr. Frame and his team have been supportive and responsive with my and my husband’s needs. They give us options to help us figure out what is best. It also helps when a member of the team has had similar experiences. Gives us reassurance. I personally have TMJ and need braces again. So I chose invisalign because although it is more costly, it better suite my needs. They set me up to do monthly payments. They gave me suggestions for TMJ. The technology and equipment is pretty cool. The office is pretty new and comfortable. They always have YOU in mind, asking about my comfort level during any procedure. They are all smiles there, especially Dr. Frame. He also has a good sense of humor. Now that COVID19 hit, they too have taken precautions and are prepared. I had to find a dentist near home because my previous one was located in East San Jose. Glad I found Dr. Frame’s office and this was from local flyers in the mail.

Kaj O. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friendly staff, beautiful office and a welcoming experience.  Everyone explains things in detail, doesn’t have a problem clarifying and helps me feel at ease and informed when I make a decision. Been a patient for almost 2 years now and I can say I’ve found my dentist. Dr frames friendly and genuine, he goes the extra step to make it feel personal and like he cares. I highly recommend this dentist office and actively mention it to friends and co workers who are in need of dental work and cleanings.
