Yes, Dr. Ganzha is absolutely confident when it comes to a discussion of the needed procedure. It’s not because she wants you spend more money.  I had a dispute with her, used other dentist and spent even more money only to realize how Dr. Ganzha was right!  Since then, I go only to her despite a 15 miles drive.  Actually, she is saving money for me.  Recently, I had an emergency case and asked receptionist over phone to squeeze me in the schedule. Entire week was booked. Then I asked if doctor could call me – and she did. After conversation, doctor scheduled an appointment after her usual business hours, and provided excellent treatment.   Thank you very much, doctor!  And thank you from my son Greg, who is in UCSC now.

Great Service! I went to Dr. Ganzha’s office and saw 4 people waiting. My last dentist always had an empty reception room with TV running. Here it was clean and welcome but busy. It scared me for a moment. But then I realized perhaps the people waiting are like me. I did not take care of my teeth for the whole year (for that matter many years) and then before the expiry of my insurance I wanted to get an appointment with a GOOD dentist, wanted high quality and proficient service and wanted it fast, How many more people in the waiting room were like me? May be all of them… Dr. Ganza was great, casual but no-nonsense. She came in and told me up front that it was going to be hectic and offered me to come back in Jan when she could spend more time. I needed to make sure I understood reasons why two teeth were hurting next to each other. After I got up on the dental chair for the first time after mannnnny years, Dr. Ganza took only one x-ray and showed it to me. Just one small x-ray! She explained and I saw it that it was one tooth that had a cavity from the back (not visible in my bathroom mirror, but boy was it clear and big on the x-ray) and that had cut in deep to the root of that tooth causing sensitivity for the next tooth as well. I did not know one tooth root can create pain in another…I was prepared to spend money for both of them. Dr. Ganza did not want my money for the second tooth. “Your other tooth will be fine after we take care of this one,” she said. “You also need to stop drinking your caffeine free Coke.” Very smart. No other dentist had asked me about my eating habits in the first five minutes of talk. And I did not know Soda speeds up cavity. She cleaned it up, put medication and filled it, and asked front desk to put me in schedule to come back in Jan. I am not sure I could get better and more honest service elsewhere. Best of all, she is a total pro. I have not gone to my previous dentist for last few years because his explanation changed for the same problem every time I visited and it hurt when he treated me. I was told that dental treatment is painful by its nature. I had accepted it. I did not know I could get sleep dentistry – you sleep, Dr. Ganzha does the work and you wake up with all work done. To be honest, I did not do sleep dentistry this time. But the way she treated me in this appointment, there was no pain. She gave me one shot, and it did the work. I have set up my appointment for the sleep session (sleep dental treatment is called sedation dentistry, as per front desk, I am learning). Overall great experience. I wanted an appointment with a pro. I got it. I wanted high quality treatment. I got it. I wanted to feel comfortable and welcome. I got it. Best of all, I came prepared to spend money (my copay) for two teeth. Dr. Ganzha did the job for half. Happy New Year to you and your staff! -Brian

Dr. Irina is an excellent dentist and very pleasant and efficient and surprisingly quick all the girls in the office are very pleasant and cordial and make you feel at ease when you walk in the door first time in extraction hardly any discomfort she will be my dentist from now on good hours also for the office

Yolanda P. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love love love this place. I have my whole family coming here. Even have my coworker coming here. If you are looking for a top quality dentist with affordable rates this is the place. I recently got two crowns done and it was $500 cheaper then what Western Dental wanted to charge me. And I have to say they did a great job. The staff here are super friendly. From the front office assistance to the chair side assistance and both of the dentists. They are all great.

Thinh-Charlie H. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dental you’ll get in San Jose. You walk in and everyone is friendly, they make you feel so welcome. I’ve been to a lot of other places and its not close to this one. They answer all your questions and they educate you on what you need to know to keep your teeth clean/healthy. If your looking for a dental place this is the place to go! Don’t look any further. Just sign up here.

Kappy W. from Lassen, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started to go to this dental office  from 6 weeks ago,  because it’s  close to my work. Now I decide to stay with this place, because they genuinely care patients, from Dentists  to front desk staff, handling matters professionally with my best interests in mind. I went in with a bad tooth ache, within a few minutes Dr. Ganzha diagnosed me with needing a root canal done. The next day when they started the root canal realized I had some issues requiring specialist’s treatment,  they referred me to a specialist without any delay, along with detailed suggestions. Now that my root canal is done, I’ll go back to Dr. Ganzha for the crown and other treatments. Dental health is part of my overall health, this is the place I can trust.

Emmie C. from Union City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I brought my daughter here to this office for the first time yesterday. Having worked in the dental field myself, I’m picky about which office I take my family to. I was so pleased with the office, staff and the dentist. I had both my kids in tow, a toddler and a 9 month old. The ladies up front were so nice and friendly and the dental assistant was so patient and great with explaining everything to my daughter. The dentist was great with my daughter as well. The office is clean which is very appealing to my eye. Definitely recommend it. It was a great experience overall.

Brian H. from Mountain View, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Irina is not for everyone, let me start there. But what I will say is that she is clearly passionate about her work, and is very demanding of the performance of her staff, and takes the quality of her work very seriously. Her accent is a little thick, I think one other reviewer mentioned this as well, it was not a barrier for me, but I manage a team in China remotely so I’m used to dealing with cultural differences. She was willing to negotiate better rates for cash patients which I am. to be clear – they do accept insurance (someone else was using insurance while I was waiting) but for those of us without insurance. The rates are fair and affordable, and when I explained that I’d be will to pay in full up front, she did offer a discount (for which I was appreciative) Bottom line – I would not be going back if I didn’t think they do great work. they do. got a cleaning and a filling. very professional, very quick service and in the end the doctor is great. If you are looking for a “warm fuzzy feeling” like some of those sedation dentistry places where the dentist takes them-self too seriously. This is not it. If you want a skilled dentist who is professional, takes pride in her work, and provides her service at a good value – this is a good option.

Venera Y. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I were Dr. Ganzha’s patients for over a year. We were happy with the service. Dr. Ganzha is especially good with kids. My boys used to be afraid of the dentist and would always cry. Now they are much more calm and relaxed. The staff is also polite and laid back, which makes the visit to the dentist very much at ease. My entire family got our teeth fixed. We are looking forward to every visit.

Julie H. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Irina with severe pain.  I was able to schedule an appointment for early Saturday morning.  It turned out that I needed an extraction that was complicated.  Dr. Irina would not let me leave with just antibiotics to solve the problem short term, but insisted I stay to address the problem long term.  I have a great fear of dentists but Dr. Irina and her staff made me feel comfortable from the beginning and I left today with a long term solution to my problem.  I am so lucky they are only two blocks away.  They checked with me every few minutes to make sure I was OK.  My problem was serious and the solution was serious.  Dr. Irina and her staff did everything they could do to make sure I was comfortable and informed.  The very highest marks for this dental practice.

Billy N. from Palo Alto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely wonderful! I started going there recently and have to say the experiences keep getting better and better. I’d recommend this place to anyone wanting very professional efficient dental work done with a straight to the point caring knowledgable dentist and staff, who take pride in their work, professional and are super friendly. They all know whats going on with the patients without seeming to have to check with each other (i think what im trying to say is they keep great communication with each other in regards to their patients which is a big plus..)This place is a must go if youre nervous about going to the dentist and dont know where to start or are nervous about going..they completely put you at ease about it..Just go there and they take care of you!:-)They (Dr Ganzha, Maria, Marvin and Christie) are a terrific help and im glad i chose to start going there!

Sam M. from Fremont, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very good dentist. Previously I had gone to Smile Care and they were trying to push a $200 teeth whitening package (which my insurance was not going to pay). I went to Dr. Ganzha, using a referral, and she did a deep cleaning job in 15 minutes. My teeth are almost white, and I saved 200 dollars. I highly recommend her to anyone living in SFO Bay Area. It is worth the drive.

Robert P. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so pleased to have found Dr. Ganzha and staff, I give them very high marks on the job they perform. I went to Dr. Ganzha with an emergency procedure and they took care of me right away, and it didn’t cost me a fortune. I highly recommend Dr. Ganzha and her awesome staff! Very high standards and clean facility. The staff are always very friendly and helpful. My personal thanks to all of you who work at North Capital Dental Care.

How can I not write a review about my dentist!?! I’ve been coming here for about 10 years now, and I only have positive comments! The doctors here are super nice and they take their time to explain everything to you, but who I love most is one of the super cool receptionists here! Her name is Maria! She has been there as long as I can remember, but she makes me feel comfortable in the place I dislike the most. I really don’t like going to the dentist because of my childhood memories, but Maria gives me a reason to go get my teeth checked! She is really good about looking into your insurance and explaining the finance part too. I also wish I knew the name of the dentist/dental hygienist that helped my daughter. Once I find out, I’ll edit this review, she is an angel and made my daughter feel safe and comfortable. She explained step by step what they were doing to her tooth. She went as far as giving my daughter money to buy something for doing such a great job. She even bought her a gift. I’ve never met anyone like this in my life. I loved this place so much I recommended my entire family to go here! Oh, this place is in a plaza with a jiffy lube and the parking area is limited, but I haven’t had any trouble with parking so far. That’s all, I should really make an appointment for a cleaning since I’m writing this review!

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


Dr. Ganzha is such a caring dentist. My mother and I both go to her. She really takes the time to make sure you’re comfortable whenever she is working on your teeth. I appreciate how she is not judgmental and how she looks out for my best interest. She also is very great at explaining treatments and options in a way that I can understand. Her staff is also very friendly with excellent customer service!

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


HANDS DOWN BEST DENTAL OFFICE I HAVE EVER BEEN TOO! I am a particularly difficult patient, with sensitive teeth, root canals, the whole 9! I have had awful experiences before of not being numb enough before procedures at other offices and still being operated on.. Dr. Irina and Dr. Rahman are EXCEPTIONAL dentists EXQUISITELY patient and fast! My root canal was completed in less than 90 mins with ZERO pain! The friendly staff scheduled me for an emergency root canal for the very sane day! Of u want the most professional, caring, patient and efficient experience with an amazing staff and the absolute best dentists in all of San Jose, make North Capitol Dental ur next stop! BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCE YOU’LL EVER HAVE!

Don W. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I avoid the dentist at ALL costs. Nothing against the staff but I just cannot stand having my teeth worked on. It finally caught up with me and I had a cavity that needed to be take care of ASAP. I came into Dr. Ganzhas’ office simply because it was very close to my house. I ended up needing a root canal, which the words alone made me quiver. After about an hour I was all done and ready to go. I barely felt a thing! Dr. Ganzha does amazing work and actually LISTENS to her patients unlike a lot places I’ve been. I’ve had two wisdom teeth and one other tooth extracted, with barely any pain or inconvenience. The only thing I’m not stoked about is the wait. Twice I’ve had to wait an extra long time and didn’t quite know why. Other than that, this is the best dentist I’ve ever been to and recommend everyone that is looking for a dentist to come here. Not to mention the receptionists and other staff are extremely nice. It’s nice to be treated with respect these days!

Tony N. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate the dentist, but u love going here. Super attentive , friendly, and welcoming! I just got both of my wisdom tooth extractions today they told me up to 1hr for both. They were super quick and gentle took them about 20mins for the whole procedure. Had a bad experience in the past for one of the lower wisdom tooth. I would recommend anyone to come here as your regular dentist.

Kamal H. from Milpitas, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I have been going to Dr. Ganzha for years. I first came here because I concluded that my old dentist was gouging me… I left my old dentist short of them recommending reconstructive teeth surgery! Doc Ganzha takes great care of you! Most recently, my new dentist became Doctor D. who is absolutely amazing; as is the rest of the staff – who are very friendly and helpful. I went there with a problem, I came out as good as new. I strongly recommend Capitol Dental to anyone who is looking for an honest and excellent dentist.

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


Really good experience here. Dr. Ghanza is very kind, thorough and easy going. She worked with me with Denti-Cal and the staff is also super friendly and sincere. The office was clean and comfortable. And the cleaning was great! No messy spillage.  Hope to get real insurance soon and so I can come back here again.

Tonya T. from Oak Park, IL (Source: Yelp)


I am a veteran in dental treatment and dental client for life, because so many issues I have with my teeth. Dr Ganzha is the answer to my prayers and compensation for all my previous frustration and pain caused by my ex-dentists: for instance, one dentist left open margins in newly installed crowns, another one drilled my teeth till cracking (and had me signed papers they are not liable for that). Thanks God someone at work refereed me to Dr. Ganzha. Dr Irina Ganzha was/is a life saver – she fixed my crowns so no food getting stuck in there, now my crowns are functional and look even better than my real teeth. She did beautiful job picking color, shape, and was not hesitant to work through the process and adjust settings before cementing crowns. She treated and healed my swollen gums. She is soo patient, pleasant and truly gentle dentist! Dr Ganzha is extremely detail oriented and deliberate dentist – I consider myself a demanding or even extra demanding patient, but she over exceded my standards. Dr Ganzha earned my trust and she did my implant too. It took almost a year, but I got my tooth back! She did everything from implant to beautiful crown, everything perfect, painless and very very gentle. I highly recommend Dr Irina Ganzha if you are looking for a truly caring and high quality dentist. Of yes, she is affordable too, and not one of those dentists that would harass you for $40 copay long time after you gone from their office. She generously waived few copays for me, though I feel she deserves every dollar and more than she billed, on top of bonus and gratitude for life

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


Very wonderful and thorough dentist. One of the best I’ve ever had in my life. She’s very knowledgeable and likes to explain what is happening to your teeth. She’s not like other dentists I’ve had that just tell you what you have and not how you got it or why it’s there (ie bacteria, gaps in teeth, etc.) She’s very knowledgeable about preventive care. The staff are very conversational and friendly too! They always ask me how I am and make sure that everything is ready for me ahead of time, like paperwork to fill out. I came in for an invisalign consultation the very first time I was there. The staff were keen on everything about invisalign, and the dentist knew right away, just looking at my teeth, how long it might take to straighten them out. Fortunately my case is an easier one =) The first time I got my teeth cleaned here, I I looked in the mirror and they were VERY CLEAN. Even below the gum line was noticeably clean. Like I said, thorough. If you want grade A dental care, this is the place to get it. Even if it’s just for a cleaning, it’s worth it.

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


Dr. Ganzha and her team are awesome!  I just finished a 1 1/2 year Invisalign treatment with her and I must say I’m quite pleased with how my chompers turned out.  She’s a no-nonsense Dentist who really gets the job done.  The environment is friendly-Maria the receptionist ALWAYS has a smile on her face!  Christie and Raphiela are good too.  Check her out if you want solid professional dentistry.

Ashley G. from Enterprise, NV (Source: Yelp)


I’v been to many many dentist before…and I hate it! After reading other reviews I decided to make an appointment here. The staff is amazingly awesome!! The dentist is awesome too 🙂 I got 2 crowns done on my molars and I love them…they were a little cheaper than other dentist as well!! Affordability these days is major! I will definitely be getting the rest of my dental work here. I will keep u updated!

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


I have been to Dr. Ganzha’s office couple of times now for my Teeth cleaning. Dr Ganzha and her staff have been very helpful and informative, they are very caring giving tips on flossing, brushing etc. I would definitely want to go back for my cleaning/filling and would recommend based on my experience.
