I have been coming to this office for ten years and have been very happy with the service and friendly staff. Dr. Tashiro is very thorough and runs an honest practice. I have been very surprised by how gentle he is. I have always had a great experience here. The front office is very easy to work with and flexible. I used to go to other dentist that would try to do gouge me and do unnecessary work. Dr. Tashiro takes the time to really explain what’s going on and lets me know my options. The office is clean and parking easy. I will continue to bring my family here for years to come!!

I came to Dr. Tashiro with my first ever cavity.  He made a nerve-wracking (no pun intended) situation a completely tranquil one.  He was calm, relaxed, explained what he was doing each step of the way, and made me feel like I was in good hands.  When the procedure was over all I could say was, “That was it?!”  He didn’t even have to numb me and took care of everything seamlessly.  Thank you, Dr. Tashiro (and staff!) for showing genuine care and putting my jitters at ease (:

I signed up for yelp just so that i could share my great experience with this Dentist.  This is my first review, so I appologize for mispelled words or gramatical errors. I have major anxiety when it comes to the dentist.  I avoid it all cost.  However, I had what seemed like a possible cavity.  I was reccomended to Dr. Tashiro from my friend.  Although I live in Irvine, I traveled to him because she said he was great. Well she was right!  As soon as I sat in the chair, my anxiety was eased.  Dr. Tashiro was so gentle.  He reminded me to take long cleansing breaths.  And even though he warned me that I would feel “a little pinch” with the needle, I didn’t even feel it.  His hands were incredibly steady.  It made me feel comfortable knowing he has been practicing dentistry for a long time. His staff was excellent as well.  He worked seemlesly with his dental assistant and the receptionists were incredibly professional and accomodating. The office was clean and I really like that he has a digital xray machine. I will be going back to Dr. Tashiro for all of my future dental issues and would highly reccomend him to anyone.  Especially those with anxiety about dentists.

Dr. Tashiro is very friendly, caring and personable.  He takes time with his patients and makes you feel at ease.  This is very important for someone like me who doesn’t like dental visits.  Everyone in the office is friendly and relaxed, so when you enter the door, you feel very comfortable.  Lindsey, the hygienist, is extremely gentle and attentive to your needs.  And, she explains what she’s doing and makes sure you are happy and comfortable. Try Dr. Tashiro out, you’ll be glad you did!

Debbi F. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic dentist & GREAT personality – Dr. Tashiro cares about YOU! I was a bit hesitant when my dentist retired, but I decided to stay and try Dr. Tashiro.  I have never been sorry that I did.  Poor guy walked into a can of worms (so to speak) with my teeth.  He works with YOU to decide what to do, explains everything and then, the perfectionist he is, makes sure that the look is good.  Near the end of “our ordeal” I talked to Dr. Tashio about two veneers for my front teeth… he did them and they are beautiful!!  I get comments all the time and I’m not afraid to SMILE anymore!!  His stiff are the most heart-warming girls you will find.  They took have a “CARE” attitude.  Try Dr. Tashiro for yourself… find out what I have.  Dentists don’t have to scare the hell out of you. I run a non-profit and it is important to look your best when giving a presentation or meeting with patients.  Don’t be scared!  You’ll be HAPPY!

Priscilla U. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a deathly fear of dentist. Was drilled as a child while strapped to a chair and given no numbing agent. So needless to say, the sound of a drill or smell of a dental office is unsettlinf for me. Or was. Thanks to this office my 30 yr old self doesnt resort back to a 5 yr old scared child. The service is great. The front desk help Carmen is polite, professional and friendly. The parking is plenty. I would say this place has a clear understanding of the insurances to expecrt, the work to be done, and they treat you like a good family member. Glad to have finally found my dentist forever home.

Linda O. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Got worries about going to the dentist?  Well, not at the office of Dr.George Tashiro!!!   Dr. Tashiro and his staff are  friendly, courteous and have the patients best interest at heart. . To soothe patient worries,  Dr. Tashiro  fully  explains  all procedures before beginning any dental process.  He also guides the patient through the procedure, or if you prefer, you can listen to music or watch TV!!!! Dr. Tashiro and the staff encouraged me to get veneers and that procedure changed my life.  Now, when I speak at conference,s etc, I am not self conscious anymore about my teeth.  Thanks to a payment plan, the procedure was completely affordable!    GO!! You will be glad you did!!!!!

Jesica M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been attending Dr. Tashiro’s office for over 6 years and my experience is always great. It is nice to arrive and be greeted by Carmen at the front desk. She is always helpful with regards to my billing and does not hesitate to explain things to me. The staff in the back are excellent and being in the office for hours does not seem as long since they are always keeping me informed as to what is being done. I do not hesitate to go to this office whenever needed. I always leave with a smile.

*EXPIERIENCED* CLEAN OFFICE * FRIENDLY * Dr. Tashiro is a great dentist with lots of experience! (About 30 years) Recently my younger sister went in for a small filling and did it pretty fast followed by a root canal, and so far so good! He did local anesthesia and made sure she was comfortable and ready for the shot. (Makes me believe he would be great with young children.) We went in for a filling, but also noticed a problem developing in her X-ray that her previous dentist either ignored or missed, which needed a root canal! So she went in a couple weeks later and that went smooth as well. My sister will need to get her teeth straightened so it was nice to find out that his office offers all sorts of services including Invisaline, as well as implants, and even teeth whitening.   The website is great too, it has all the info a new patient needs to know. Such as all the services he provides, insurance accepted, payment plans, before and after photos, explanation of procedures, how to keep your teeth healthy, and other useful info.

John S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tashiro and his staff are amazing. Most comfortable I’ve felt at a dentist since I was a kid going to my families dentist in my home town. The facility is clean, staff is warm/welcoming and above all kind. The Dr himself, always remember myself and past conversations we’ve had, even after the first apt when I just met him. He keeps up on his current events and sports, so you will always expect a good conversation.

Phimpha M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been seeing Dr. Tashiro for a little over a year now. I waited to write this review since I don’t usually stick with a physician or service for more than 3 months. But Dr Tashiro and staff has made me feel very welcome and taken great care of me. Believe me I needed work done. The office is extremely clean. Staff is friendly- Som, Carmen and Lindsey (hygienist) these ladies are the best. Dr Tashiro himself will put you at ease once you are on that scary dentist chair. He will explain every procedure and treatment in great depth. Answer any nervous questions you may have. By the way Dr. Tashiro and staff are foodies themselves so they understand if your teeth needs that extra cleaning. Thanks for making my smile brighter and healthier, one visit at a time.

Melody C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tashiro is caring (good bedside manner) and honest. I’ve had a lot of work done at his office, and there were a couple instances when he could have insisted that he work on my teeth (so he could profit).  But, for Dr. Tashiro, it’s obvious that patient care comes first, so he appropriately referred me to specialists whom he felt could better treat my problems. I really appreciate that.  I was also self-conscious and uncomfortable with the state of teeth, but he never made me feel bad about it– that trait is very important to me.  His staff is awesome.  They’re friendly, organized, very helpful. Carmen and Shelley makes the insurance and payments process very easy  (for example, Carmen looked up the insurance phone # for me as opposed to an office manager at another dental office who didn’t offer and waited while I fumbled around looking for it). Lindsey has been great with cleaning and helped me feel at ease when I found out I had to get braces. Som (the dental assistant) is gentle, calm, and has good bedside manner as well. It had been awhile since I had seen the dentist, and I’m so glad that when I finally did, it was with Dr. Tashiro.  Thumbs up!

I am happy with the professionalism and friendliness of Dr. Tashiro and his amazing staff! It took me years to finally find a great dentist. I’ve been in Long Beach for almost nine years and been through many dentists. I took a chance with Dr. Tashiro and it paid off. I’ve been a client for under a year, and had numerous work done (fillings replaced, cavities filled, and two front crowns replaced). My goal was to find a dentist that is professional, relatable, and excellent at his craft. I had my two front crowns for 20 years and finally had them replaced. I am particuliar (to say the least) and Dr. Tashiro was patient, kind, and made me have the best smile possible! Even with my doubt of color matching of the front teeth, he allowed me to go directly to the lab and continue until I WAS SATISFIED! He made sure I was happy with the final product (my two front teeth). Bottom-line; happy and glad to have him as my dentist/artist. Lastly, I want to make sure to give credit to Carmen (office manager), she made each billing experience manageable. I always had every dollar accounted for so I could use my insurance to the last penny! Som, thee (RDA) is awesome. She listened to my crazy stories and always made sure I was comforatble with all procedures. Her input during my crown process was reassuring! Lindsey (hygienist) was my first initiation to the offce, as it was three years since I had seen or found a dentist that qualified for my picky standards. She is thorough and kind. Bottom-line is this office is the best. If you want to feel welcome and taken care of then I highly endorse Dr Tashiro and staff. Take the chance. I did! Thank you again! Matthew (Long Beach)

Tristan L. from Seal Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tashiro is by far the best dentist I’ve been too. Not only is his staff friendly but they make going to the dentist fun. Every time I’ve been there, they seem to take that scared feeling away and make you feel comfortable with the procedure. He has a great office which was quite roomy, I definitely would recommend him to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Karen H. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


The service with Dr. Tashiro cannot be replace! I’ve been coming here for years now and I’m completely satisfied with his service. The staff is always so welcoming and friendly. I definitely recommend him for all you dentist needs!

Val T. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is awesome!!! I love the way Dr. Tashiro and the whole staff welcomes you everytime we step in the door. My family and I have been coming to Dr. Tashiro for many years now, he always makes our visit very pleasant and at ease. I am very happy to see a dentist who truly cares about his patients needs. I believe  Dr. Tashiro is the  best dentist in Long Beach by far… :))

My wife & I have been going to Dr. George Tashiro for many years, even going back to when he graduated from the University ot Southern California. He always has done an excellent job on every aspect of our dental needs in a very caring & highly competent manner & we would highly recommend him to anyone.

Melody K. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place.  It’s a little Dentist Office in Long Beach off Atlantic and Wardlow.  The staff is SUPER friendly and the parking is convinient.  I hate the dentist but Dr. Tashiro makes me feel comfortable here.  Did two recommendations already 🙂

Liz V. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tashiro is amazing, I have been going to him for many years now and I wouldnt want to go anywhere else. His office is always nice and clean, his staff is awesome and friendly but most importantly they make you feel at ease and comfortable. I hate the dentist but Dr. Tashiro makes my office visits a whole lot easier. I totally recommend him for anyone who needs a good, caring denitst!!!!

Kaitlin O. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Recently had to have a cavity filled which required a shot to numb the tooth. I’m not the biggest fan of needles, and felt very uneasy about getting a shot in my gums. However, all of my anxiety was for nothing. Dr. Tashiro first numbed my gums with a topical treatment, and let it soak in a good ten minutes or so. When it was time for the dreaded shot, I didn’t even feel it! Not one bit. Dr. Tashiro had numbed my gums so well, I felt no pain what so ever. After receiving the shot, we waited another 15 minutes or so to let the medicine really work, then got down to business. Within 20 minutes my cavity was filled, and I was on my way with my day, pain free! Cavities are not pleasant, but Dr. Tashiro and his team made it a pain free experience, which is what is most important! And a big thank you to Carmen for reminding me about my appointment and getting me scheduled for the next one! If you’re looking for a new dentist office with friendly staff and a fantastic doctor, look no further, you have found it here!

Raul Z. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wanted to see a Dentist for a routine check up. I moved to Long Beach and wanted someone close. I scheduled a appointment and was seen very promptly. I was very happy with his polite, great customer service staff. My teeth were X Ray, cleaned, and examined all in a quick manner. Dr. Tashiro explained in detail and gave me many options to better my smile. I took his advise and now get compliments on my teeth that i once wasn’t sure that was nice. My teeth are white and i feel confident when i am at work and at meetings. I now talk highly about my dentist to others that ask. He is affordable and reasonable. His knowledge and experience in alot of procedures as in teeth bleaching, invisalign, and other cosmetics needed to suit all your needs is above alot of other dentist office i have been to over the decades. I recommend you give the office a call and see how he and his staff can help you better your smile. Thank you Dr. Tashiro so much for everything. I feel like a new man with my smile. See you soon for my scheduled appointment.

Mary D. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience at this dental office. I was recommended by a family member and have referred many since then.  One of my worst fears is going to the dentist and I seriously suffer from anxiety before and during an appointment, however, this Dr. is so patient and his office staff are amazingly kind and understand my fear.  I will continue going to this Dentist and I will continue referring friends, family and co-workers.

Lisa Q. from Honolulu, HI (Source: Yelp)


The staff is so friendly! Lindsey was my hygienist  and was so amazing! I will actually now be taking my kids here because of her and Dr Tashiro. Very knowledge and so helpful! So happy I was referred here!

Rebecca H. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I should start this reveiw by saying that I have a HUGE fear of the denstis. Have for years which is why I have so much work that needs to be done. I was referred to Dr. Tashiro by a coworker. My inital consultation I was nervious and felt a little ashamed that I had waited so long to see a dentist. Not once did Dr. Tashiro or any of the other staff make me feel bad. Dr Tashrio even said that his goal was to get my teeth healthy and keep me comfortable so that I continue to return. We went over the extensive amount of work that needed to be done and priortaized them together. He asked what I was most concerned with, and he actively listened. I just had my second visit and spent a few hours there. Dr Tashiro was very meticulous in the work that he did. He made sure I was completly numb and when he knew I would feel vibration or any different sensation he made sure to tell me. He explained the process well so I never felt like I didnt know what was going on. After the visit I got sick (which i found out was due to a stomach virus that my son and his father both had) and both him and the office manager Carmen offered to drive me home to make sure that I got home safe. I look forward to continuing my dental treatment with Dr Tashiro and will make updates with my visits.

dr.tashiro and his staff are the best in the west and you can forget about the rest, a painless dentist who knowns his business and his staff is excellent and friendly who do their in a way that make you feel that you are part of the office crew,i will recommend him to family and friends.

L. K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tashiro and his staff are really great.  They’re all really friendly and make going to the dentist a better experience than one usually thinks of when it comes to getting your mouth poked at.  I feel comforted and reassured when I get confirmation I haven’t been taking as good care of my teeth as I should have, and I get great advice and explanations on what to do or what procedures I may/will need in the future.  I also have gotten interesting information from them about other treatments like strengthening topical creams, etc. It’s nice to hear about recent innovations and options beyond the boring typical brush, floss, filling talk. I have to get a cavity fixed soon (i’m so disappointed in myself), but I’m comforted that I’ll be in good hands.

I woke up in even worse pain than ever before since this whole entire week of discomfort caused by my lower left wisdom tooth. Unfortunately, due to the complexity of my wisdom’s tooth growing sideways, I was referred to a surgeon who could do the extraction next week ! I met Dr. Tashiro, Carmen, and Som today & they have been nothing but helpful and kind. He prescribed some pain killers until then. Other than that, Dr. Tashiro is easy to talk to and really cares about your well being. I decided to come in to his office because 1)they were the only ones open at 8am 2)high ratings on yelp. I have to make him my new dentist because of his kindness & his helpful caring staff. Plus it beats driving to Rancho Cucamonga to see my other dentist.  I look forward to keeping my teeth at its best in the future with Dr. Tashiro & would highly recommend him to anyone

Emily P. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr. Tashiro on Yelp and so happy I did. He is a great dentist along with his entire office staff. Everyone is so nice, helpful, and flexible. Dr. Tashiro knows what he is doing and helps you understand each procedure. I would definitely recommend this dentist office and know you will be in good hands!

Lindsey G. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Throughout the past few years I’ve seen a few different dentists, and Dr. Tashiro is by far the best I’ve been to! He makes sure to take care of any problems I’ve been having, while also referring me to other specialists. He really does his best to ensure that each patient has the best dental care possible and that the patient understands what’s being done. The entire staff is friendly, comforting, and extremely helpful. My entire family sees Dr. Tashiro and I wouldn’t recommend anyone else!
