Boonka C. from West Oakland, Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


i was referred by a previous dentist to itani and i must say the staff was amazing…. my teeth were rotted, crooked and i had a retainer in the top front that needed to be thrown away! he suggested i get a deep cleaning first, then he extracted the rotted tooth,  then shaved down 2 in the front and made me a temp… my teeth were so horrible b4, everybody love the temps! lol dr itani said “this is only the beginning” i have to get a root canal and fitted for my permanent crown bridge next week…. this means so much to me because for years ive been talked about n laughed at… they made me feel comfortable and now my life is already starting to feel better

Dr. Itani is an amazing talented dentist. He has been treating my family and myself since 2007. He Is extremely passionate about his work. Thorough, detail oriented, meticulous, clean, creative and most of all gentle with the procedures. Years ago, I consulted with several dentists regarding my father’s teeth treatment plan and all recommended to pull all his teeth and place a denture. Dr. Itani was the only one that had a great plan to save his teeth without getting dentures. With an innovative procedure, he placed couple of implants and built a bridge with attachments to the front teeth. That was a successful solution as It gave my father confidence to smile again and show his beautiful teeth. He could chew comfortably enjoying various foods. Thank you Dr. Itani for this fabulous transformation! I trust no one else with my teeth as I have ongoing treatments. Dr. Itani is meticulous and detail oriented especially when it comes to aesthetics, selecting colors for crowns and various styles for the implants. The results are always perfect Prior to commencing any work, he provides a detailed affordable dental plan with all associated costs related to each procedure. While working on the teeth, he is extremely gentle. You don’t feel the anesthesia needle going through the gums. He walks you through step by step, explaining the entire process. His extremely attentive assistants, always make you feel comfortable in the dental chair. They are a wonderful and professional team and the hygienist does always a great thorough work. His office is very welcoming, elegant, always impeccable and immaculate. The wonderful staff is extremely friendly, nice, helpful and always run on time. You cannot get any better results and I highly recommend Dr. Itani’s office for providing premium dentistry and exceptional care.

Phil S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani is my favorite dentist.  I’ve been his patient for many years now and will keep up my appointments with him because I feel confident in his knowledge and expertise in treating my dental problems. He has a very light hand, he explains first what to do to save and protect my teeth, he is very considerate with my feelings, makes me feel unafraid during the process, he is very understanding, kind and very patient. My wife was able to overcome her fears of going to the dentist since she was treated by Dr. Itani. He has a staff of adorable ladies; they are very friendly and accommodating and makes you feel comfortable when you are there. They take you in right away even before your appointed time; also they give you some goodies after treatment to care for your teeth. The office is always clean and the interior decoration is classy and in good taste

Tom W. from Petaluma, CA (Source: Yelp)


I consider myself a very practical consumer when it comes to dentistry. I thought one dentist was as good as the next, they all use the same tools, right? Well, it seems this is an incorrect assumption. Working in Petaluma, I saw a Petaluma dentist for several years who seemed to be OK. However, when I had a dental emergency like I did two weeks ago, my normal dentist was simply not available to help me. I don’t think she could have helped me anyway– I had a broken tooth and was in considerable pain. My wife swears by Dr. Itani and the entire staff at Itani Dental and insisted that I give them a ring and not wait until Monday to see my normal dentist. So, on a Friday evening I called Itani Dental and was on the phone with Dr. Itani within minutes. I could hardly believe a dentist would make himself so available to his patients. Dr. Itani scheduled my appointment for the very next morning (Saturday) and fixed my tooth efficiently and painlessly. I really cannot recommend Itani Dental and the kind Dr. Itani enough. Even if you have another dentist, see Dr. Itani once and you’ll never go back to your old dentist. Not only did Dr. Itani go out of his way to help me in an emergency situation, his office seems to have much more high-tech equipment than my Petaluma dentist. This surprised me, as I thought dentists carried the same hardware, but it appears that my other dentist was using methods and hardware from the early 90’s! Dr. Itani and Itani Dental deserve the glowing reputation they have attained on Yelp and I owe them a lot for the superb customer service and professional work they did for me. Itani Dental has to be one of the best dental practices in the Bay Area, period.

This was the best dental experience I have ever had. Dr. Itani and his staff are friendly, professional and caring. They worked with me to make an appointment last minute and around my work schedule. I was able to send in my paperwork ahead of time and walk right into my appointment. The entire appointment took less than an hour with a consultation. I will definitely be going back to Itani Dental, I have already set up my next appointment!

Dan S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have no idea where to start on saying how much I like Dr. Itani. First I have to say that he is like everyone else has said already a very personable and friendly guy, which for a dentist is very unusual in my experience. He listens actively to what you are saying and is very good about telling you what you need to hear and not what you want to hear, he also explains everything and makes a lot of notes for future visits on places to check out a little more closely the next time. His staff is also extremely comforting and friendly which also helps take away any nervousness you may feel going to see a dentist. Also, Dr. Itani and his staff have great senses of humour  and as you should be able to figure out likable.I also have to agree with an earlier review and say that Dr. Itani is the best dentist in SF and yes it feels weird saying that about a dentist.

Allison T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Itani and his staff have been incredible for me. I had an accident requiring emergency dental care during the height of the quarantine, and they were able to take me in that day. They provided excellent treatment – not only do I feel like my teeth are as good as new, but he has been great about explaining my prognosis and treatment plan. Dr Itani and all the other doctors and assistants I’ve seen here also made me feel very well taken care of. Dental work can make me nervous but they continually checked in to make sure I was comfortable, offered to stop any time, and explained all the steps of what they were doing during procedures. They also put an emphasis on making sure I was 100% happy with how my teeth looked and felt, and would respond immediately if I thought something didn’t feel right. I have felt more at ease here than any dentist’s office before. The office setting and receptionists are also great, and they have been top-notch at installing safety precautions and procedures as they open back up.

Lordex D. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani is a pro! He gets into you right away and addresses our situation in an instant. I just had an accident recently, I stumbled forward with my bike and smashed my face and teeth on the ground. I had 2 broken tooth, 1 tooth he repositioned and 1 tooth fell off completely out of my gums. When he saw me in the emergency that day, he repositioned my tooth right away and put a brace. I then had a follow up appointment with him, the day after tommorow and got into my situation on the things that needs to be done. He explained to me the outcomes and goals of having a traumatic accident with my teeth and told me the best possible solution for me to have. He put a temporary smile on my face and made my smile a way more decent look than I would have expected! He is very skillful on what he do and truly cares for his patients!

Jay M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani is the best dentist I have been to in the many years I have been going to the dentist. I have, for some reason, had an aversion to dentists but since going to Dr. Itani that has since subsided. The staff is very welcoming and always greets me with a smile. Everyone in the office is aware of my feelings about going to the dentist and they go out of their way to ensure I am as relaxed and help calm my nerves.  I have referred others to Dr. Itani and I know they will be taken very good care of as I am.  Two thumbs WAY UP!

Adal B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Since day 1 going to this dentist, Dr Itani and his staff made me feel at home and hooked me up with some seriously professional care. It wasn’t till I broke a tooth in Italy however that I had the opportunity to see just how much they care about me. I was quite panicked, trying to find a dentist in Lucca during the national holiday and getting a grasp of my options. I called the office in SF and they explained the options, gave me advice and even shared estimates over the phone. After getting it repaired in Italy, I came for an inspection and not only did they comp me for the price of a cleaning (great cleaning btw), but Dr Itani also took the time to shave my repaired tooth back to perfect shape so I could continue to wear my retainers. With his professional opinion and generosity I can finally leave my trauma behind and smile again like it’s a freaking Colgate commercial!

Anudari K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was sent to the emergency room on halloween night around 1-2 am…the doctors were trying very hard to get a dentist for me but found it difficult considering the date and time. I was fortunate enough that Dr. Itani came to his office and agreed to treat me which obviously shows his dedication. He was very professional and calmed me down considering the mental of state ive been in. He was efficient and precise considering i woke him up in the middle of the night. I went back regularly for check ups and everytime i come in, its a professional environment but also very friendly and welcoming. The ladies that work there are probably the nicest ive ever met! Also, loved how the text message notification works!!! Definitely recommend Dr. Itani and his staff!!!

Ashley N. from Concord, CA (Source: Yelp)


WOOHOOO! I have found my DENTIST and I am taking myself, my hubby and son to this office !! Offered drinks, sincerly nice, super professional, clean office! I still feel excited almost hours later! I seriously have DREGGED the dentist since moving to San Francisco, (6+yrs)& after my sons visit today, my husband and I are going to book appointments for ourselves. Nice to know that you have an dependable dentist professional, with small town feeling of value & comfort ! The other dentist in the office was amazing as well.. They not only accomdated us super fast , their customer service is excellent. I am so happy to have a dentist for my family! HURRAY for Itani Dental ! ! I love the location and the building is great! This five stars is well deserved !

Cassie L. from Sausalito, CA (Source: Yelp)


As far as dentists go these guys are the best! I constantly dread the dentist and yesterday, other than the horrible news that I may have to have a root canal (AHH!) the experience was completely painless and really pleasant! I sat and listened to the Bachelor (don’t judge) on their free wifi and the hour breezed by. I had two fillings and didn’t even feel them and they did a great job. She checked on me constantly and I hate injections and honestly barely felt them. Having had bad exp with other dentists i can definitely recommend this place. Also they have amazing views of the city 🙂

Heather J. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


I never imagined that going to the dentist for a broken tooth could be such a good experience. I was visiting from NYC when my tooth broke and I needed urgent care. I was referred to Dr. Itani by another dentist that I googled, and thank God. From my first interaction with his staff I was relieved. They were able to see me right away and take care of the problem. Dr. Itani was knowledgeable and careful, and communicated his every move so that there were no surprises. What could have been a painful experience turned out to be just fine. I highly recommend Dr. Itani to everyone!

Kristianne M. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit to Dr. Itani last week, and it went great! The office staff is extremely friendly and they make you feel really comfortable, and Dr. Itani is a wonderful dentist. Many dentists try to push work on you that you do not need, but he is very straightforward and he tells you what is necessary, what is not, and allows YOU to make the decision for yourself about what work you want done. I also like how he takes his time with his patients and makes sure all of their questions are answered. You can tell he loves what he does. I am very happy with my visit. Thank you!!

Carla S. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down, Dr. Itani is the best dentist I’ve ever seen by a long shot. He is very professional and he spent enough time explaining to me what, why and how things could  be done until I thoroughly understood it. He put in two crowns for me and I was in and out in no time. No fuss, no muss, no bother. The result is excellent as far as fit, appearance and comfort. I couldn’t be more pleased with his work and I experienced absolutely no pain! By the next day or two I was chewing on both sides of my mouth and felt more comfort than I have in years on the side where he put the two crowns. His bedside manner is knowledgeable, professional, comforting, warm and friendly . He explains everything he’s doing as he goes along. He made it easy and comfortable. I can’t recommend him enough. Overall, it was just a great experience.

Cris A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am writing this review as a recommendation to any person who is looking for the best dental experience one can get. Dr Itani is the definition of a true professional which only compliments his genuinely apparent concern for each and every one of his patients dental hygiene. When I explained to Dr Itani and his staff that I am a college student with very little spending money, they earnestly reviewed my insurance plan, assessed my dental situation, and instructed me on the best ways to maximize its efficiency. Through every process Dr Itani himself took the time to explain each step to me in detail, not just dental procedures, but with billing and insurance as well. I’ve never felt in better hands than I do since I’ve become a patient with Dr Itani.  Thanks again

Trevor W. from Novato, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin? There really is too much to say about this gentleman doctor and his staff. Let me break it down: Dr. Itani the man – Dr. Itani is unlike any dentist you have been to. He is compassionate, friendly and goes out of his way for his patients. Now I pride myself in being able to read people very well and can smell a salesman in a labcoat a mile away, but Dr. Itani is a genuinely friendly man who really cared about my dental situation. He’s funny, personable and treats his staff with such respect! He and his assistant had such a friendly and effective rapport which made the work so much more comfortable, it was truly a unique and great experience. Itani Dental, the practice – Now, I hope I have conveyed how genuine and human Dr. Itani the man is, because his practice is imbued with the same exact characteristics. Every member of his staff is friendly and he treats them with complete respect. This makes for a very comfortable and friendly environment to have dental work done. Of course, all of the equipment and techniques they use are state-of-the-art. My situation: On top of having dark decay on my two front teeth, I broke a front tooth while eating nuts– Needless to say, I looked pretty bad when I smiled. As fate would have it, a day after breaking my front tooth, I received two job offers + interviews for the following week. Now, this front tooth missing was more than terrible looking, it also made me whistle when I talked. As my first interview was on Tuesday at 11am, and it was Monday at 5pm, I got ready to beg forgiveness of my future employers and explain my run-in with the business-end of an almond; however, my mother (who swears by Dr. Itani) suggested I call Itani Dental to see if they could help. I called after their hours said they had closed, they STILL picked up the phone and a very friendly secretary even put me on the phone with the doctor. He completely understood my situation, and said he and his staff would come in EARLY the next day at 7:00 am so that my work could be done before my 11am interview. I came in, had the extensive work done and was out of the office by around 9:30am with a shining white smile. I rushed from SF to Petaluma to conduct an interview, and, icing on the cake, I got the job! I owe Dr. Itani and his staff a lot and I hope anyone that reads this will seriously consider making Dr. Itani their regular dentist– not only are you supporting a truly friendly and out-going doctor, you are also benefiting from one of the most professional and patient-centric dental practices I have ever encountered. Thanks Dr. Itani and everyone at Itani Dental, every dental practice should look at you as a model!

I was traveling to San Francisco from Florida when I got a severe toothache on a Friday evening. The hotel concierge gave me Dr.Itani’s contact information and I called the emergency number. Within minutes Dr. Itani called me back and called in a prescription to a pharmacy near my hotel. By morning the prescription had worked my tooth was feeling much better. His office followed up with me on Monday morning and I was seen at the office. This was exceptional service and I am very grateful.

Laura M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani is the best dentist in the world. I had a moderate dental phobia which had led to my putting off much needed dental care until I couldn’t wait any longer. He and Christian (the best hygienist ) never once made me feel ashamed or embarrassed about my teeth or my fears. They do great work and they go to every length to make sure the patient does not feel any pain. Dr. Itani is the best shot giver – I don’t know how he does it, but it doesn’t hurt. If you don’t have insurance, they will work with you to come up with a payment plan, or you can use Care Credit. The desk staff is really friendly, too. They don’t do endodontics so if you need a root canal they will refer you to another dentist in the same building who is really good too. So, no excuses! Go see Dr. Itani!

Martin S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani and his team take the fear and shysterism out of dental treatment. Friendly and professional, Dr. Itani will give your teeth a thorough examination using the latest equipment before undertaking anything. More unusually and what makes this dentist exceptional is the next step: he will sit you down, show you any X-rays, and go over in detail your options as to care, listing what procedures would cost and what their benefits would be. I initially went in with a fairly serious dental problem that had been exacerbated by previous treatments, and at no time did I feel that Dr. Itani was rushing me or trying to exploit my case whatsoever. In fact, because his team makes it easy to work with different insurers, the hourslong, meticulous work the dentist did on my teeth cost less than the slapdash treatments in skeezy offices I’ve suffered from in the past. The hygienists and office staff are as friendly as can be, and given the unbeatable location, I simply can’t imagine seeing anyone else for my dental needs.

AMAZING experience. I was on the hunt for a new dentist after my old one billed me twice for the same procedure….5 months after the fact. Yeah. (cough cough Young Dental SF cough cough) Anyways, Itani dental was AMAZING! I had an 8AM appointment and came early to fill out my paperwork and they were there! The cleaning was SUPER thorough and done by the dentist. I had a 10AM meeting and was worried b/c their checkups normally take 2 hours (so thorough!!!) They rushed it and took so many types of pictures and did so many tests more than any dentist I’ve EVER been to. The service was amazing, the atmosphere was spa like and I’m actually looking forward to my appointment in 6 months! They also accommodated my meeting time and made sure I got out of the office in time for my meeting.

Dr. Itani has been providing me dental care for close to 15 years now. I have had numerous dentists over the years. He is very good. He recently saved a crown. A previous dentists root canal caught his attention.. saw bone loss on xray.. referred me to a root canal specialist in same building. Root doc was an excellent referral. The job worked the bone is growing back. Dr. Itani helped me save money by putting a filling in that crown.. he did such a good job it’s undetectable to the naked eye. This is just an example if his quality of overall care. He explains things well and his staff is nice. Recommend.

Gary C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can not tell you everything that Dr. Itani and his great staff did for my 91-year-old mom in this small space, but I can tell you it was nothing short of a dental miracle.  We were afraid she was going to lose all of her upper teeth because the few remaining natural teeth she had were failing.  Dr. Itani found a way to make her a new upper set of dentures in spite of a bone growth in the roof of her mouth that would prevent the placement of a regular full denture.  And he did this, in her home, at a completely reasonable and competitive price. Mom loves Dr. Itani but he’ll never know how much what he did for her meant to me.  I would advise you so see him today whether you are 92 or 22!

Haneen A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen Dr. Itani for the past four years and what a great doctor . I just went last weekend He spent an hour with me on my initial exam, patiently explaining everything he thought needed to be done.  He is very focused on patient education, he does not recommend unnecessary work, and he always outlines all of your options. He has flexible work hours even in the weekend, very friendly tells nice stories, work with your money budget and the most important thing is that you walk so happy with the result in your teeth. I can’t say enough great things about him and the entire staff. I highly recommend Dr. Itani.

Cindy L. from Santa Cruz, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani is pretty great! Had to have two cavities filled recently and Dr. Itani made it the quickest, most painless experience I’ve ever had. He was really informative, incredibly kind, and made me feel like I wasn’t at the dentist. He brought me water when I started coughing and showed a lot of empathy — Checked up on me before, during, and after he applied numbing. He thanked me for doing really basic things (like opening my mouth bigger) and made me feel really safe and comfortable. Legit one of the best dentists I’ve had. Only feedback I can share is their front desk communication can be confusing or lacking, but that’s easy to ignore given the wonderful service!

Janis R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Itani’s office since 2013, but this is the first time I needed to see the man with the name on the office door for a crown… and I couldn’t be happier with his level of care throughout the entire process! I typically have no issues when it comes to dental work – your typical fillings here and there…. but last month I experienced incredible pain only when I ate and it hit tooth #30 just wrong… haha. I called Dr. Itani right away and upon first inspection, he detected it could be a hairline fracture but said he wanted to cross out all possibilities and referred me to a root specialist. Funny, because he circled the general area to see if the other doctor could confirm his findings “without telling him.” (I’ll write a review about Dr. Nguyen after this =) Anyhow, after that diagnosis, we determined I would get a temp crown and see how it went another week, then either get the root canal and crown or just a crown. (The process is interrelated, so might as well kill two birds with one stone if  you are already in process of crown). I determined the root canal was the best way to go and in the midst of waiting for that appointment, my temp crown broke! Omg.. I was having a cow and called Dr. Itani’s office right away. His office staff scheduled me the same day (I think he took a shorter lunch) and another temp was installed. Fewwww In the next weeks I got the root canal and waited for it to heal. Went back to Dr. Itani who installed the permanent crown and it was a beauty! He managed to make it fit my retainer and it matches all my other teeth perfectly. Well done!! The best part of Dr. Itani is his bedside manner. Throughout the process he explains what is needed and why, answers all your questions, mentions the worst case scenario as a possibility, but will do his best to avoid it. During the dental work, he preps you on what he’s about to do and what to expect to feel. This helped me feel comfortable and trust that he knew what he was doing the entire time. Moreover, his assistant was attentive, kept me clean and relaxed with a little chit chat here and there =) I think I should also mention that they always run on time! The office is clean and always has nice orchids or flower arrangements on the mantel. I happen to love the light easy pop music playing in the background, and they greet you with a smile and ask if you need water or anything to help you ease into the appointment.  I have a sensitive nose and it’s nice that the office does not smell like a hospital, haha. They keep current records and explain when you will have a co-pay or not before you leave. Everyone is very professional and kind. If you are in the market for dental work, I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Itani and his wonderful staff.

Anthony D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani does house calls.  He has been coming to our house for about 3 years to perform dental work for my wife who is bedridden and suffering with depression and dementia.  He is so caring and expert with my wife’s dental problems.  I really love him because he gives my wife the absolute best care.  I know how great he is because we had another home care dental service which was unsatisfactory.  They were so bad we looked for someone else and were really fortunate to find Dr. Itani.  If you have a loved one at home who needs dental work performed in your home you really should contact their office for a visit; you won’t be disappointed.

Teresa Z. from Saint Louis, MO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani and his staff have been taking care of my teeth for the last 6 years. They are fantastic!  I am not a fan of going to the dentist but they make it fun and help me with all my anxiety. I feel so taken care of and at ease at the dentist now. Dr Itani is honest and knows his field so well. He helps create a preventative plan for your teeth to help avoid any unfortunate events with your teeth in the future. This also helps decrease my anxiety. I am so happy I found him and even though I’ve moved I still drive an hour to see him.

Joy S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve just met Dr. Itani and his wonderful staff once. Once because we’ve decided to  switch dentist within our network provider. Unfortunately Dr. Itani is not. However we stiil try and see how much is the difference having out of network.. It’s way too high. Lucky those who has insurance that covers his practice. Anyway, this is my first time to make a review here in YELP since this is where I’ve discovered Itani Dental. The staff were amazing, very good bed side manner. They will explained everything in detailed ( no signs of irritability or impatience) same with Dr. Itani , he would give you alternative and understand your financial capabilities. He is not a pushy marketing style dentist. He would explain everything within your level so my 14 year old boy knows his teeth condition and treatment needed. Hope I would have the same one in replace of him. I wish he would be under Delta Dental PPO.

Taylor B. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani is the best dentist I’ve ever had! They are very transparent about billing and provide an itemized bill before you get any procedures done in order to help patients budget and prepare for these expenses. I also appreciate that they’re open late on weekdays and are even open on Saturdays — a perfect place for working professionals! Their equipment is very advanced and they even provide photos of your teeth that need work (they even take the time to explain why each tooth needs work). Most importantly, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Itani goes the extra mile to make you feel comfortable. There’s a reason why they have 5 stars on Yelp!

Traci R. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Itani and his staff were super nice and it was an amazingly good experience (how often does someone say that about a dentist appointment?). I recently moved to San Francisco and had been living here for all of two weeks when I lost a porcelain veneer on one of my top front teeth. I looked like a freak!  I found Itani Dental on Yelp and emailed them on a Friday night. They called me the next morning (Saturday).  When I called them back, I was able to be seen the same-day (within a few hours).  I arrived at their office and in less than an hour, I had a temporary crown that matched my existing veneers perfectly. Dr. Itani did a fantastic job. Unless you looked closely, you wouldn’t have known it was a temp! I was amazed! His staff were great, as well, and I really like them (also, they were helpful and flexible in terms of payment arrangements).

M L. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I really ought to begin by saying just how obsessed I am with getting my teeth cleaned.  I LOVE it.  I’m the kind of patient who freaks out a dentist because of just how much I enjoy that fresh, clean, wonderful feeling of a clean mouth.   That said, Dr. Itani and his team not only met every expectation I had, but they they exceeded my hopes of how the whole experience should be.  Dr. Itani is personable.  He looks you in the eye when he’s speaking with you, treats you with respect, has a great sense of humor, and always explains what he’s doing – how and why.  And… he takes my insurance (yay!). I was disappointed to learn that I had some decay and needed some fillings… and worse… my first cracked tooth, requiring a crown (gasp!!).  I never thought I’d be writing a 5 star review for anyone doing any kind of work like that on my teeth, but here I am, vouching for his compassion, gentle hand, underdstanding, precision, and outstanding ear for listening to the patient.   It wouldn’t be fair to close out the review without giving  their space of Dr. I’s hygenists is outstanding.  She’s gentle and also explains everything that she’s doing.  She’s also great about checking in to make sure you’re not only OK, but also comfortable while your mouth is being worked on.  Kassy is Dr. I’s stellar receptionist.  She is so sweet and seems to know more about my insurance than I do because she actually  had the patience to talk with them and help me figure it out.  Kassy broke down all the costs and helped me figure out my payments.  She’s genuine, thougthful, and very helpful.   Whether you’re new to the area, or just looking for a dentist that will rock your work, Dr. Itani and his outstanding team are the end to your search.

Dr. Itani,  and the rest of the team at Itani Dental are the simply the best in dental care. An accident left me with a lot of intensive, multi-step, dental work and I couldn’t have chosen a better doctor and team to get back the smile I wanted. Dr. Itani is extremely focused and a perfectionist at his craft. He is great at always keeping you in the loop on what he is doing and why. He also understands how integral your teeth and smile are to your overall confidence and appearance. He and the rest of the team are always patient and helpful with any and all of my questions. They also have time and time again been flexible with scheduling around my crazy schedule and anything that may come up. Teresa has been essential in dealing with my insurance company and spent countless hours ensuring I was reimbursed. Overall, I couldn’t be more pleased with the type of care I receive with each visit to their office. Thank you all so much!
