Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

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


I used to cover my mouth when smiling until Dr. Shapiro gave me the most gorgeous, amazing, perfect, natural looking, strong, comfortable teeth to smile with!.  Because two of my adult teeth did not develop properly, I needed a bridge, cap, etc. etc. covering most of my upper teeth since my twenties, and I had never been happy with them.  Dr. Shapiro changed all of that.. Not only is she a top notch dentist, I could really feel that she cared about me and her only concern was to give me beautiful, healthy teeth!!  Although I’m no longer in San Fran, Dr. Shapiro will be my dentist forever.

My husband and I absolutely loved Dr. Shapiro and miss her after we relocated. She was awesome about letting us know about little issues and asking if we want to tackle them right away or schedule around to use our FSA dollars efficiently. We never had to wait on appointments and the team is so efficient that most of my cleanings were 30 minutes flat.

Dr. Shapiro’s office is amazing. There is something about that hook scraper that gives me the willies and I always dread going to the dentist but my first experience had me looking forward to getting my teeth cleaned again. The building that the office is in is a bit weird and is very dated. Once you are in the actual office though, everything is updated and very clean. The view of the bay is amazing from the windows you look out of while getting your teeth cleaned. The staff was extremely friendly. I really appreciated Zora, my dental hygienist, as she was really thorough in explaining everything that was going in my teeth. The experience was perfect. I wasn’t sold on any expensive procedures or products but instead left really understanding what I need to do at home for my teeth.

Great first experience with Dr Shapiro. Was slightly weirded out that it was in a mall/galleria, but felt much better as soon as I walked in. Jeff, the patient coordinator was super friendly and professional – and the office itself is super clean, modern and nice. All of the equipment seems extra nice and new as well. Dr Shapiro was wonderful. Took time to really explain everything she thought and was doing, and he approach was that dental work is all preventative, so she doesn’t rush to suggest expensive treatments you don’t need. Cleaning was swift and thorough, and the Xray system is digital – so it’s nice to see the images pop up on the screen instantly. And I can’t lie, it doesn’t hurt that she is a fellow Eastcoast transplant. I always seem to prefer my doctors from the east coast. Solid experience overall and will definitely be a regular patient.

Dr. Shapiro and her team are fabulous! I just moved to SF and was in search of a new dentist, which can always be a scary endeavor. I was very lucky to find Dr. Shapiro! Scheduling an appointment was super simple, and the office is nice and in a convenient location. My cleaning was very easy and pleasant, and they even have Netflix to make the process go by quicker! Dr. Shapiro and her team are attentive, knowledgable, and professional. I recommend them 100%

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


By far, hands down- the BEST Dentist I have ever had in my entire life.  Not only is she thorough and honest, she genuinely cares about you as a person.  You can tell she became a Dentist for all the right reasons- and she is a damn good one that’s for sure.  She tells her patients what they need and what they don’t need rather than recklessly suggesting dental work that is unnecessary, costly and painful.  She makes you feel comfortable in asking questions and definitely has no gimmicks or tricks up her sleeves.  By word of mouth to family, friends and coworkers- everyone that I have recommended to see her has agreed with me: she is AWESOME!  I’ve had my fair share of horrible Dentist experiences (to say the least) and I thank my lucky stars for ending the agonizing grief by finding Dr. Shapiro!  I realize people dread going to the Dentist (naturally) but I can honestly say that my visits with her are always a pleasure.  Her staff is amazing as well.  Can’t go wrong with this Dentist- you will definitely become a fan.

Lea is a fantastic dentist. I have had cavaities filled and she also did my invisalign so i saw her quite often. She is very professional, detail-oriented and she wears her compassion for her patients on her sleeve. She even helped me get replacement aligners when I melted mine in hot water trying to clean them. I have been going to her for a few years in New York and i couldn’t believe my luck when we both moved out here. I recommend her to all my friends and you to dear reader.

This was my first trip there. Holiday was awesome to meet as I walked in and great to talk to. Leah and Dr. Shapiro had excellent bedside manner and Dr. Shapiro was incredibly friendly and seemed genuinely interested in getting to know me. The cleaning was quick and painless and I got to watch The Office while they did it. New favorite Dentist!

Holly L. (Source: Zocdoc)


She was awesome. She was thorough and explained everything that was going on. Her entire team was really friendly and kind. Not to mention, patients get to watch Netflix which was an unexpected surprise! It made the whole dental process less nerve-wrecking for me. Great first appointment. Looking forward to see her again in the next 6 months.

Cody M. from Corte Madera, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came here to Leah Shapiro after a few years of neglecting my dental care. I was pretty anxious about getting my initial cleaning and check up but she’s made the whole experience so painless and easy. Her commitment to detail and openness to input are priceless as well. The staff in her office are also incredibly kind and knowledgeable They put me at ease the minute I walked through the door. So happy I stumbled upon Leah’s office! I’ll be coming to her for everything from now on.

Yesenia R. from Richmond, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental practice definitely deserves a 5 star review. Dr. Shapiro is informative and thorough when explaining a procedure. All of her technicians are super friendly and knowledgable. Silvia at the front desk is so helpful and very sweet. Best dentist I have ever had!!

Tessa D. from El Cerrito, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Shapiro. She’s had several opportunities to upsell me on procedures — I wouldn’t have known if they were really necessary — but every time she has taken a conservative, budget-conscious approach that has proved over time to be the right course. Plus she’s really fun to talk to and never makes me feel like just another mouth. I’m so glad a friend recommended her!

Michael L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate needles. I hate them. I’ve had 2 dentist in my 30 years on this planet that have the bedside manner and the skills to inject me with Novocain without my freaking out. She is one of them. I didn’t even know she did it. Aside from my phobias, Lea filled my cavity during my lunch hour and I was back to work quickly. If you work downtown, fear needles, and need a great dentist, see her.

Had a great first experience with Dr. Lea. She was really patient and caring while performing the cleaning. Her staff was also very kind and friendly. She gave me honest opinions on what services were needed to not blow up my insurance and be cost-effective. Would definitely recommend her to anyone looking for a new dentist or switching one.

Sam C. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shapiro is fantastic! I had to get several fillings completed and have always had a tough time with the numbing needle. I informed her of this fear and she was extremely warm and provided an experience that made me extremely comfortable with the whole process. I didn’t feel a thing! I rarely write rave reviews but Dr. Lea is deserving of these accolades and much more. Thank you Dr. Shapiro!

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


Dr. Shapiro is amazing! Kind, warm, & totally knowledgeable with everything that I needed since coming here in April of 2015. You can even watch Netflix while getting your teeth worked on. It’s super conveniently located, & the staff are super friendly & helpful. I can’t recommend this enough! In fact, I managed to get 3-4 of my coworkers to come here.

Dr. Shapiro is very cordial; explains procedures thoroughly beforehand; provides running commentary throughout the procedure so that the patient is not surprised by what’s happening; asks the patient throughout the procedure if s/he is comfortable. I feel well-taken care of at her office. Yuni, her assistant, is also very capable and provides excellent customer service.

Oscar H. (Source: Zocdoc)


Lea was excellent! I’m not a fan of going to see a dentist and she asked right away how I was feeling and made sure that I was comfortable. Holliday was great as well! She offered to put on Netflix for me, but I think choosing to watch Arrested Development was a mistake. Trying not to laugh while someone is cleaning your teeth is pretty difficult.

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


Lea is a wonderful dentist! She is very thorough, compassionate and attentive to the patients needs. I had a HUGE cavity in a tough spot that needed to be filled. I was absolutely dreading it and it wasn’t bad at all because she is so good! She also takes Delta Dental and Anthem Blue- both insurance programs I’ve been covered under and fully works with you to know what the costs will be. Dentistry can be so expensive its great to know that you won’t be taken to the cleaners for basic care. I think we’ve all had our bad experiences. I really appreciated her honesty and thoroughness. She’s also very personable, easy going and fun 🙂 You will look forward to your appointments.

Angelina A. from Hayward, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist I have ever had!! She was extremely professional and attentive and made herself very available to me after the root canal she painlessly performed on me. She is now treating both my mother and myself and we would both highly recommend her to anyone!  I’ve had a problem and fear with dental work in the past and I feel confident to say that because of Dr. Shaprio’s great work that is definitely in the past!!! I couldn’t believe how accessible she was to me and the fact that she was so thorough in following up with me! I wish I could recommend her to more people!

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


I had a great dentist in DC. Then a terrible dentist here (in a dirty office in Berkeley). And, starting today, I have a WONDERFUL dentist again – who takes my insurance (Delta PPO) –  and who is located IN my office building…SCORE! Dr. Shapiro is knowledgeable, firm, thorough, gentle, and a frustratingly engaging conversationalist. She is respectful re: insurance coverage costs and she needs clients – she just moved from NYC. I was really impressed. Highly recommended!

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


Lea Shapiro is amazing! My husband and I both go to her and love her! Her staff is very friendly and office is clean. She really cares about her clients and sincerely wants to help you as much as possible. She makes getting your teeth cleaned enjoyable, I look forward to it!

Really liked my first visit with Dr. Shapiro! Overall a great dental experience. Dr. Shapiro was very friendly and answered my questions patiently and clearly. Being able to watch Netflix during my teeth cleaning was a nice touch — I suggest watching the documentary Planet Earth to make the experience more relaxing.

S. S. from Larkspur, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everything here was made so easy, including my dental insurance details that Michelle kindly sorted out for me and explained what would be covered in detail and with kindness & patience. The office is super clean and intimate and I really felt cared for during my time there. I am normally not a fan of dental exams in general, but the level of comfortability and the helpful staff made this a positive experience. I also felt Dr. Shapiro was warm and friendly. I will definitely go back again. Thank you!

Sonya H. from Sausalito, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m really thrilled to write this review because Dr. Shapiro definitely deserves it! I was able to get an appt within 2 days and once I arrived, I was seen within a couple of minutes. Dr. Shapiro took time to listen to my aesthetic concerns with my teeth after Invisalign, as I had some bonding corrections that needed to be addressed. She has an eye for this sort of thing that not every dentist does. Once she was done, I couldn’t believe how good my smile looked. The smallest changes made a HUGE difference ! She offered different options as we went along with the procedure, made my smile look completely natural and above all, made sure I was happy! She even called me a few hours later to check in to make certain I knew she was available if I needed/wanted any more tweaks to the work she had done. Well, Dr. Shapiro and her team have definitely made me a happy patient and I look forward to giving her my business for cleanings and all other dental work moving forward! On top of it, the view it beautiful and calming, literally facing the water. 🙂
