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


I’m sooo glad I found Dr. Yamane!!! My dentist had retired and I went to another in his office…even though they were nice and friendly…it was no longer a good fit. I’m extremely picky when it comes to my doctors that I go to. When I met Dr. Yamane…I knew I had hit the jackpot!!! She was so friendly and kind…I felt right at home with her.  I have some extensive dental work that I need to have done and she knew exactly the right treatment plan for me.  Her expertise and knowledge set me right at ease.  I’m so grateful I found her!!! Shout out to her amazing office staff!  Enden, Susan, Jenny and Maria ( the most amazing dental hygienist!!) Every time I call to make an appt or if I have a question…Susan and Jenny are always so kind and helpful..they are so friendly and fun…I enjoy talking with them when I come in for an appt.  .I really feel like I’m under the best care with Dr. Yamane and her staff.  I trust her implicitly and I know she always has my best interests at heart.  Thank you!!!! Maureen McLernon.

I give Dr. Anne Akemi Yamane and her staff the highest possible marks. She is extremely comptent, professional, and client focused. Her staff is personable and always works towards best dental hygiene for her patients. Most recently I had an emergency dental problem with my partial plate. Dr. Yamane was available for my emergency and the problem was resolved within 24 hours. If you are seeking a great dentist and with great staff support, put Anne Akemi Yaman, DDS Inc. at the top of your list.

My family and I have been patients at Dr. Yamane’s office for 20+ years. She and her staff have always been nothing but kind, accommodating, and professional. Dr. Yamane always checks in with each patient, and all the hygienists always make everyone feel comfortable. I would highly recommend Dr. Yamane and her staff to anyone in the South Bay area!

I’ve been a patient here for many years and I’m extremely happy with my service. Everyone in the office is friendly, good at their job, and genuinely care. Dr Yamane is truly a special person. Not only is she great at her work she takes her time checking on you and your family. Whole heartedly recommended to all.

Dr. Yamane, her dental assistant Maria, her receptionist Susan, and truly her entire staff are so professional, personable and thoughtful. I’ve been seeing her for more than a decade now, and they always go above and beyond to make sure I am well taken care of and have a positive experience. That hasn’t changed amid the pandemic. They’re also taking every precaution (and then some) to keep patients safe. She (and everyone else there) better not be retiring anytime soon!

Fantastic dental care! Dr.Yamane is so thorough and conscientious. She treats you like family. She gives clear descriptions and explanations. She focuses on cost effective dental care. The staff is so kind and caring. The entire office feels like family. I could never go to anyone else.

Great people. Everyone is very knowledgeable and extremely skilled. They work together to keep the process moving along and get you in and out of there quickly, all the while maintaining an extremely pleasant environment. Along with everything else, Dr. Yamane gives the best local anesthetics I’ve ever had — no pain; quick recovery.

My great grandparents came to Dr. Yamane’s father, now my grandmother and I go to Anne! They’ve taken care of my teeth since before I remember. When I was about 10 I fell off my bike and broke off the bottom half of my 2 front teeth, my grandma got ahold of them and they rushed into the office after it had closed to help me. Seriously who does that? Probably will never go anywhere else!

Great service from the time you walk thru the door. Well worth the drive from metro Los Angeles. Knowledgeable on how to care for your teeth as you travel down the aging trail of life. Even with COVID 19 Dr. Yamane and staff are able to maintain the the high level of service and safety during my visit.

My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Hideo Yamane and now Dr. Akemi Yamane (daughter) for over 30 years. Having moved to LA from Toronto, we asked a friend for a referral. We could not have been more pleased with the professionalism of all the staff and the doctors. I would highly recommend this dental office to all. We have 100% confidence in their work as well as their referrals to other dental professionals.

Matt R. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Yamane for several years. Dr. Yamane is friendly and professional. The dental hygienists are kind, caring, and gentle. I want to give special recognition to Jennifer who has been instrumental in helping to keep my teeth and gums in good shape. During the first couple of decades of my life, I went to a different dentist. For some reason, I felt like I had an adversarial relationship with him and his staff. This is not the case with Dr. Akemi Yamane and the wonderful individuals at her office. I feel like we are a team. This dental office has earned my highest recommendation.

Jill O. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Dr. Yamane’s office for at least 15 years and I am  going to continue to be until they kick me out lol. Everyone in the office is kind and caring from the front desk to the hygienists (loooove Jennifer!) to Dr. Yamane. They remember so much much about me when I come in – I feel like I’m not just a patient, but a friend now.  They don’t upsell – they just keep my smile healthy and bright! If you are looking for a gentle yet thorough team I would highly recommend this dental office.

Peter C. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


The front desk people are super nice, hygienists are great, and Dr. Yamane is a pro. Whether you need a simple teeth cleaning or a more serious procedure, this is the best place to go. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my chompers!

Danielle C. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like most, I have been seeing Dr. Yamane for years. Her professionalism and expertise are the best in the business. She takes her time to explain any new information, answers all your questions, and is genuinely interested in maintaining your health. Honestly, her entire team is pretty great. Every person in the office has a warm, positive attitude and cares about delivering the very best level of service possible. Beginning with initial contact all the way through post-visit follow-up, you can expect a seamless experience. I highly recommend this team. If you’re in the South Bay (or really anywhere else), you can’t beat ’em!

Tim B. from West Torrance, Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great staff and office!    Dr. Yamane continues a great tradition of family dentistry, as I was her late father’s patient for some years prior.  It took a few years to find this gem, but so glad we did!  They are very caring and helpful in promoting a healthy head of teeth.  The automated notifications of appointments are helpful reminders.  Wait times are minimal, but there’s guest wifi, charging stations, and assorted magazines to pass the time. The front desk associates are cheerful and ready to help.  The hygienists make visits anything but painful as they take great care around areas of concern.

Dr Yamane and her staff are professional, proficient, and very nice people. They are very considerate of the patient’s experience and possible discomfort level in addition to the financial aspect. They very willing to work with the patient, balancing timing and coordinating with medical insurance companies. I recommend Dr Yamane without reservation. I have been visiting this office for dental care for over 25 years and have no reason to look elsewhere.

Dr Anne Yamane DDS and her office run a professional, efficient, high quality, low stress, no pain dentistry office. I have been going for over 10 years. The oral hygienist does a wonderful job cleaning, spends the whole hour and my teeth feel brand new immediately after. I actually look forward to my visits, knowing my teeth are well taken care of, leading the better oral hygiene and overall health. My appointments are always on time, I have never had to wait more than 15 minutes on rare occasion, and usually the wait is more like 2 minutes. Amazing. I have never been upsold for fictitious work, over priced deep cleaning nonsense not a once, loose gums need surgery-quackery does not exist here. Recently during the Covid crisis, they were forced to revamp the office during quarantine. When they re-opened, I was lucky to be one of the first to return. New filter stations in every room, revised work flow, masks and shields to keep me safe. Having worked in a clean room for aerospace, this was a high tech setup.Impressive. It has been just over 2 weeks since my last visit, no issues. I felt no more at risk then a visit to the local supermarket. I recommend Anne Yamane to my friends and family with great enthusiasm. Easily one of the best dentists in the area.

Best dentist ever! Love her quality for perfection! Very caring and smart. She makes me feel very comfortable when she’s working in my mouth. The front office staff and assistants are very kind and friendly. I love the hygienists who clean my teeth. My teeth feel so great after. I won’t go anywhere else.

Dr. Yamane has an amazing staff, and she makes sure her office is always clean. I trust her with my dental needs. She is dependable, experienced, knowledgeable, and reliable. She has been our family dentist for many years. Her recent upgrades addressing the covid-19 are second to none.

Ruth Lopez (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Akemi and staff are treasures! And not just because of the, as always, great teeth cleaning and checkup this week. Days before on Saturday evening, my cousin, who had never seen Dr. Akemi, was suffering from an extremely painful dental problem and couldn’t find an emergency dentist available. i called Dr. Akemi and she saw her at 7:00pm, Saturday night! Cousin is on road to recovery. Also, felt totally at ease during this COVID environment. Safety and protection of staff and patients is obviously of utmost importance.

Patricia Nomura (Source: Google)


Visiting the office during Covid times turned out to be a very safe and positive experience. The doctor and her staff really know what they are doing as far providing an ultra sanitary space to practice They have worked successfully to upgrade office equipment, cleaning systems and procedures. I felt completely at ease and I am grateful for the services I have received from the Yamanes for over 50 years!

Jennifer Cosgrove (Source: Google)


My first cleaning since COVID. I felt very safe with the changes made for the office and the procedures. Thank goodness as we need to keep up the care of our teeth and gums. Dr. Akemi is professional and caring, taking time to go over all my concerns. Jennifer always does a thorough and careful cleaning. 5 stars!

Don Zukas (Source: Google)


Everything from the front office to the hygienists are excellent. I love the friendly staff and, although I can select an appointment with a specific hygienist, I prefer to let the office decide based on their schedule. I’ve never been disappointed. Dr. Akemi is caring and supportive of my specific dental needs. I always feel welcome here and I highly recommend this dental practice to anyone.

Y. Yoshimura (Source: Google)


Great Dentist! Dr. Yamane makes sure I am comfortable during the procedure and if major, she follows up by contacting me. Her Assistants and office staff are very helpful and easy to talk to, and the place always very clean. For the excellent services I receive, I give Doctor Yamane five stars.

Don Z. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Akemi for many years. Her staff are gentle, friendly and amazing.  Their care for me over the years has allowed me to maintain a healthy smile even after radiation treatments threatened my teeth and jaw. I cannot say enough about good things about Dr. Akemi and her team except to encourage you to visit for yourself and see what caring and friendly dentistry looks like.

Brooke H. from Seal Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been going to Dr. Yamane for years! The staff are always friendly and helpful and greet you with a smile when you walk through the door.. more importantly they are very careful when tending to my sensitive teeth and always make sure I’m not in any discomfort during cleanings. Dr. Yamane is very thorough and always explains things in a way that is easy to understand. She takes time to listen to my concerns and answer all questions so  my mind is at ease. She is very professional and passionate about her work and it shows through her practice. I would highly recommend Dr. Yamane for anyone looking for a great dentist.

May T. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Anne Akemi Yamane is not only a great dentist but also a wonderful human being.  She treats each patient with care & compassion.  Not only is she concerned about your teeth but also the overall health of your mouth.  Her staff is equally wonderful, they’re very personable, professional & highly qualified.  I have been going to her office for many, many years & am a satisfied customer.  I would highly recommend her to anyone that’s looking for a dentist.

Best care at any dental office in my life.
Dr Yamane is very confident and professional with her care and treatment of my teeth, and of my whole family’s dental needs. I appreciate the agility and gentleness of her hands the most after her dental care expertise. Her staff is very caring and professional especially during this Covid-19 pandemic by maintaining such a clean environment. This gives me a very safe and comfortable feeling to continue getting care from Dr. Yamane.

Rika Y. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been patients at Dr. Yamane’s office for many years (I’ve been going here since I was a child and I am now in my 20s). All of the hygienists are friendly and caring, and they always put your needs and wellbeing first. Dr. Yamane is attentive and caring, and she always makes time for all of her patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Yamane and her staff to anyone in the South Bay area!

Chanel S. from Harbor City, West Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yamane’s office is the best in the South Bay! I’ve been coming here for years and have never had problems. The staff is amazing! They are so friendly  and caring. A text reminder can be sent to your phone so you’ll never miss a cleaning! I’ve never had to wait, they are always on time for my appointments. Highly recommend this office!

Dianne Tartaglini (Source: Facebook)


I have been a longtime patient at this office for dental needs. I am usually fearful of any dental work due to sensitivity issues. Anne Akemi Yamane is always mindful of my fears and is extremely comforting to all dental fears and needs in her work. Virtually a pain free office. All the staff that work here are caring, very nice and provide excellent support. As much as I dislike any dental work, I would highly recommend Anne Akemi Yamane dentistry.

Kate P. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My last dentist changed offices and I wanted to go to one with easier access, and LOVED this office! Easy parking, located on first floor, and office staff was very welcoming. I don’t have many issues with my teeth but Alfredo was patient and gentle, Dr. Yamane was straightforward and professional and REALLY NICE, and Carolyn did a great job with the cleaning. I hope to go here for years and years and years.
