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

Courtney S. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I drive all the way from Los Angeles every six months because they are that good here. They treat everyone like friend/family and have the most comprehensive cleaning I have ever had in my life. They are very gentle and truely want to know if you are experiencing the tiniest bit of pain so they can stop it and figure out what the problem is so that you have the healthiest mouth around. I had tried several dentist in Los Angeles who all said I needed crowns or wanted to charge excessive amounts for things I knew I did not need. Dr. Tanaka and Leong worked with my schedule and confirmed that I only needed a cavity filled and a cleaning unlike what the other places said. I was able to wear the Bose noise cancelling headphones they provided and did not hear or feel a thing the whole time they were repairing my very big cavity. Even if I lived in Australia or somewhere else, I would still come here to get my teeth taken care of.

Dr. Tanaka and Dr. Leong have been my family dentists now for about five years. I have nothing but great things to say about them, their staff, and their practice. A major reason why I left my original family dentists (had been seeing them for over 10 years), was because they started to find things that were “wrong” with my teeth every visit, despite not changing anything about my tooth brushing routine or diet. There was always something additional they said that needed to be done and eventually I took my business elsewhere. At Dr. Tanaka and Dr. Leong’s office it is the complete opposite. All the staff are friendly, they treat you like family, and are always extremely helpful. I haven’t had one bad experience at all. Additionally, they never “find” anything wrong with my teeth after every appointment. I know everyone hates going to the dentist, but I actually look forward to my appointments knowing full well it’ll be a pleasant experience. I would highly recommend them to anyone else in the area looking for a great team of dentists and hygienists.

I can’t say enough about Dr Tanaka, he treats you like family the minute you walk into the office. His staff have fun at work and make you feel at home as well. Dr. Leong also treats you as family, together with the staff, they make an excellent team dedicated to your all over health focusing on your dental health.

I have been a patient of Drs Tanaka and Leong for 22 years. They are thorough, practical, kind and compassionate. I am happy with the professional dental work they have performed for myself and my family. My husband and my three oldest children also are patients. I love the staff and they are the backbone of this practice. They are kind and efficient and very knowledgable. Laura Alger is a great hygienist. I can’t say enough about how this practice has met our dental needs.

My wife and I have been seeing Dr. Tanaka and Dr. Leong for several years. I truly hope they never retire! Let’s face it… going to the dentist is nobody’s favorite thing… but going to this office for dental care offers EXCELLENT service, both in terms of the best dentistry available and wonderful, friendly customer service. We highly recommend the Tanaka / Leong team!

Dr. Tanaka and all of his staff are a group of dedicated folks that love to laugh at each other and with their patients. They treat you like family and take a real interest every individual… My wife and I have been going to see them and Dr. Leong for over 10 years now. I have no plan to go anyplace else… They work very well with my insurance and with my limited finances… Terry Jones retired, fixed income.

Best dentists for 25 years running. Dr. Tanak his wife and their staff even opened the clinic on a Saturday for my dental emergency a couple of times over the years and did not send me to another dentist, we love our dentists!! Keeps up to date on the latest dental practices and technologies and the clinic is sparkling, immaculate and all the instruments sanitized. Jay.

I have been a patient with Dr. Tanaka for over 10 years now and would recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist in the Phoenix area. Dr. Tanaka is extremely nice and performs great work! Most of my family members also use him as a dentist and have never been disappointed. The entire staff is friendly, welcoming and knowledgeable.

. Tanaka and Dr. Leong are the best! The staff is first-rate, always asking about my dental and personal needs. I told Ray and Cindy that they should start a dental practice management company to teach other dentists how to hire and retain staff. I always feel very welcome. As for the treatment, both dentists are top flight. They continually take education courses from some of the best sources in dentistry today to keep their skills sharp and learn new techniques. I don’t have particularly good teeth and have needed crowns, fillings and gum work. All of the procedures were done well with a minimum of pain. In fact, both dentists inject the anesthesia so slowly that I feel nothing at all. I give Drs. Tanaka and Leong and their wonderful staff my highest rating and would recommend them to everyone. Five stars are not enough.

Peter S. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Drs. Tanaka & Leong for about four years now. This is a first-class operation in every respect. The doctors and staff are all extremely professional and exhibit a genuine care that can’t be faked. I have been extremely satisfied with the quality of treatment I have received over the years. Both doctors are fantastic, as are the hygienists (Thanks Yuni!) and the office staff. I truly appreciate that they tell it like it is and don’t try to stick you with unnecessary procedures. Kudos to all!

Awesome staff and service, my family dentist retired after going to him for over 20 years. I tried different dentist office for over 2 years then an oral surgeon referred me to Dr. Tanaka. They really do care about you. Their staff is always friendly and accommodating. One of the biggest thing for me was when I got my tooth fixed I did not feel the injections!! Excellent recommendation, I will be going there with my family for years to come.

I love Dr. Tanaka, Dr. Leong and the Staff. I have been coming here for over 10 years. They all make you feel so comfortable and welcomed each and every visit. Very professional and just a nice relaxing atmosphere well getting dental work done. I recommend to all who is in need of any type of dental work.

This is the best dental office in the valley, bar none! Not only are Dr Tanaka and Dr Leong both excellent dentists, but they are beyond professional and have put together an amazing staff of dental professionals. The admin staff treats us patients like family, and they bend over backwards to work with my schedule which takes me out of town weekly. I’ve had everything from dental cleaning, to cavities filled, to crown work done and it’s all been great. I bring my whole family here, and wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. If you’re looking for a new dentist office, look no further!

Laura P. from Buckeye, AZ (Source: Yelp)


My husband has been going to the practice of Dr. Raymund Tanaka and Dr. Cynthia Leong for about seven years. I was seeing another dentist because a friend had referred me to her. My husband kept wanting me to switch to this practice, but I am too loyal I suppose. In April of this year, I had an accident that resulted in major damage to my front bottom teeth. I knew at that time, I needed the real experts and so I made an emergency appointment with Drs. Tanaka and Leong. When I entered the office that morning, I instantly felt at ease. I knew I was in the best possible hands and that I would be well taken care of. I had complete trust in the doctors and the staff. They were so sensitive to my fear and showed great empathy and patience. They were able to stabilize my injury with a temporary bridge which also relieved the intense pain. They also took time to walk me through the next steps and options explaining that I needed oral surgery followed by reconstructive work. They also referred me to Southwest Oral Surgery for the extractions and bone graph (also amazing; see my Yelp review). I had the oral surgery today, and my follow up appointments for the reconstructive work with Drs. Tanaka and Leong have been scheduled. The staff is incredibly efficient, professional, caring and at the top of their respective professions. This practice functions like a highly tuned machine. There is a strong cohesion among the team and such a sense of harmony and well being when you enter the door. They love what they do and it shows! I have never experienced a dental practice this. They are so special! I HIGHLY recommend the dental practice of Drs. Tanaka / Dr. Leong and team

Just replaced 2 old crowns on front teeth. Put it off for years because hadn’t found a dentist I trusted to do this delicate work. Knew there wasn’t much tooth left and wanted to avoid implants. Raymund Tanaka came highly recommended by others in dental field. Watched his TEDx Talk. Was impressed with new patient exam, prophy and knowledgeable explanations. So, decided to trust Ray’s assessment that there was enough tooth base for crowns. He was correct. Also visited dental lab Ray uses – it’s first class. Ray’s standards are the highest. His work was meticulous, unhurried, and assistants well-trained. Know we finally found the right dentist for us and it’s a big relief. We also have high standards and know “BEST” when we see it.

Drs Tanaka and Leong stay on top of the latest information and technology and make your time in their chair as comfortable as possible. They and their staff help you feel welcome, like a member of the family! We’ve gone to them for years, even after moving to the other side of town. Trust me, it’s worth the drive!

Last week, I stopped by Drs. Tanaka and Leong’s office and told the staff I had a part time toothache. Instead of making an appointment, Dr. Leong immediately checked my mouth and had a work plan in just a few minutes. It is always a pleasant experience to go to this dental office even when you have discomfort! Dr. Tanaka, Dr. Leong and staff are super!

Simply the BEST! Have never felt more comfortable in a dental office! From the front office staff to the Hygienists, Dental Assistants, Drs Tanaka & Leong, you will not find a more friendly, caring, thorough, & professional dental office. They take their time to explain diagnoses and procedures, and make you feel very comfortable. They have a gentle touch, do outstanding work, and deliver painless anesthesia injections too! All of the staff members have worked there for many years and that speaks volumes about an office. I highly recommend Drs Tanaka & Leong and their dental practice!

Dr. Leong and Dr. Tanaka are by far the best dentists I have ever visited! They make sure to answer every question I have in-depth and provide me with all of the possible treatment options and information I need, which has always made me feel exceptionally reassured in making dental care decisions. They and their staff also make the atmosphere extremely inviting and friendly so whenever I have a check-up I always feel comfortable during my visit!

My family has been going to Dr. Tanaka and Dr. Leong for many years. We would refer them to anyone. Dr. Leong spotted some dental issues with our son that would require braces. Had she not caught the issues he would have had major issues now as a grown man. In going to the office it is like visiting fun family members. All of the staff are very happy and personable and both doctors make you feel relaxed when working on you.

Very professional & approachable dentists and staff!! I trust them with all my dental procedures & decisions. Dr. Tanaka & Dr. Leong have been practicing for over 29 years ( could be longer) and it shows in how they manage their practice. I am a very happy patient and strongly recommend them.

Kari W. from Peoria, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Have been going to Dr Tanaka for about 15 years. I have had nothing but the very best care there. They don’t do any unnecessary treatment, make sure that you are completely comfortable every moment. The whole staff is amazing. My kids now all go to him as well as many of my friends!
