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

★★★★★

I highly recomment this dentist.  They are the most professional and comfortable dentist office I have gone to.  I have had 2 other dentists tell me what I needed to have done and knew it, but he showed me with pictures of the cracks and mercury in my teeth exactly what needed to be done and how much it would cost, step by step.  Very usefull and up front.  I have pain in one tooth and cracked teeth from mercuy fillings all over my molers.  I have read so much about how bad these mercury black fillings are and how we all had those as kids, if you are over at least 40 or so, not sure when they stopped, but not good for your body.  That is what I like most about this dentist, all about your overall health, which starts in the mouth friends, read up on this.  I have bad headaches and hoping getting rid of this mercury will help, I have tried just about everything else, but even if it doesn’t I know I will be healthier without poisen leeking into my system.  Plus I am scared of dentists, but not Dr. Vancamp.  I have had some very bad and painful experiences, not that here!

I became one of Dr. Van Camp’s patients when he first took over the practice — I had been a patient of the previous dentists.  There was a dramatic change for the better when Dr. Van Camp and his team took over.  Linda is the best dental hygienist ever — she keeps things in check so they don’t get out of control.  Dennis in the office will battle your insurance company until they pay for what you need.  Jose, Dr. Van Camp’s assistant, puts you at ease and knows what he’s doing.  Yesterday they placed two 3/4 crown/veneers put on my lower front teeth because I had managed to wear away all the enamel over the years –what an immediate difference.  All this in the matter of one morning — no waiting at the lab or having temporaries needed because they have the ability to mill their own crowns/veneers.  The end result: a happy (and better looking) smile from me.  Dr. Van Camp and his staff are professional without being stuffy and always make me feel comfortable and like they have my best interests at heart.  I highly recommend them.

I’m new to SF and also had not been to a dentist for a number of years.  So not surprising that I needed a fair amount of dental treatment.    I initially went to another dentist who’s service was disappointing and recommended some significant treatment (surgery).   I decided to get another opinion and went to Dr. Van Camp. What a great move on my part!    Not only are the “regular” services delivered by a great friendly and accommodating staff (cleanings, etc.), John has recommended some alternative treatment protocols which could mitigate the need for surgery. I also appreciate the attention John gives to his patients, even for visits that are just routine cleanings.   While I do not think I will ever enjoy a trip to the dentist, the thorough, friendly and quality service that John and his staff deliver makes it all somewhat less “painful”.

I never thought I could get excited about going to the dentist. Well, Dr. Van Camp proved me wrong. First off he’s the sweetest guy you’ll ever come across. He’s got all of the amenities like warm gel wraps for your neck and biscotti, etc. His hygienist Linda is not only a hoot but she’s fast, painless and does a great job. The office is totally tricked out with all sorts of high-tech dental stuff. My last dentist screwed up one of my fillings and my tooth took a turn for the worse. Dr. Van Camp said I needed a root canal. Eeeeks! No problemo. It was like getting a filling. It was not only fast and painless but from looking at the x-ray I don’t think it could be more perfect. The kicker is that he CNC milled the crown in the office out of a solid piece of ceramic instead of giving me a temporary one and then having some lab do it. The thing fits like a glove. I’m considering having him tear all of my teeth out so that he can just make a full set of perfect crowns. He’s THAT good. If you go and see him tell him I sent you.

I had laser gum treatment with Linda the hygienist about 3 months ago and had my follow up appointment last week. I have always had a problem in the past with bleeding gums. Being someone who cares about my health and smile, I never understood why. Well, this is the first time since I can remember ever having gums that don’t bleed and a good check up. It was easy and comfortable. My teeth and mouth feel great! Dr. VanCamp’s a mercury free dentist and I can’t wait to have these ugly black fillings replaced. I am definitely telling friends and family. Modern, convenient and the friendliest office I have ever been to. And most importantly…they care. Two thumbs up.

I never thought a dental experience could be this great! I have been in for a few different procedures /services. First a 90 minute conultation, an extremely thorough cleaning by lisa, a whitening treatment by Jose, and a few fillings. I have always been terrified of the dentist and a major nervous reck with sharp objects and drilling sounds anywhere near my face, but everyone there really knows how to put you at ease, make you cozy and truly deliver a relaxing experience. I just received four fillings that were completely painless by Dr. John Van Camp and am so amazed with how easy it was for me, 2 hours later i felt like it never even happened!! Seriously, that is a big deal!!! The facility is really clean, nicely decorated, has relaxing music, and fantastic customer service. They are very knowledgable, have top notch technology and equipment, and take lots of before and after photos that you can see right then and there giving results right before your eyes. Since coming here i have been much better about taking care of my smile, and  I never thought i would say this, but i can’t wait to go back for my next cleaning!

I highly recommend Dr. VanCamp and the staff at Respect Your Mouth. Forgive the melodrama, but Dr. VanCamp gave me back my smile.  My husband had been seeing Dr. Van Camp for years and recommended him when I was looking for a new dentist.  I came in with some much needed work and they immediately put me at ease and I felt confident that I had found the right place – and I was right.  Dr. Van Camp recently finished replacing all my front crowns and they look beautiful.  To say Dr. Van Camp is a perfectionist is an understatement. He did not stop or settle until he thought my teeth looked fabulous. All in all – a great experience (at the dentist!).  The entire team (Dr. VanCamp, Linda, Jose, Dennis) is fabulous.

★★★★★

I’ve been a patient with Dr. Van Camp for the last five years.  By far the best dentist and team I’ve had.  They might not be the cheapest dentist around but you get what you pay for. They have the latest digital technology,  cool spa like environment and I love the friendly staff- Dennis, Linda (hygienist) and Dr. Van Camp himself.  They have made small adjustment to prior work, like my Cerec fillings for no extra charge and they stand behind their work.  Dennis always explains at every visit what my anticipated copay is, after an estimate of how much my insurance will cover.  On several instances he’s been able to get them to pay for a larger portion than they normally would. I’m glad to have gotten rid of the old mercury laden amalgam fillings- YAY.   They also been very generous in regularly donating dental supplies to Rainbow World Fund, an LGBT based humanitarian aid organization that I volunteer with which distributes medical and dental supplies to places such as Guatemala and Mexico.

I have been going to Dr. Van Camp for over 7 years. I was referred by my wife who came home one day and said you won’t believe the great experience I had at the dentist. They are friendly, knowledgable and very professional. In my previous dental plan Dr. Van Camp was considered out of network. So I pay a little bit extra to get excellent service. A few years back I thought I should go to another dentist in network. The other dentist was like going to Walmart. It was so bad, that other dentist nearly had me spend a considerable amount of money on something that Dr. Van Kamp knew was the problem right away because he knew my history. I highly recommend Dr. Van Camp’s dentistry to anyone.

Dr. Van Camp has been my dentist since he opened his offices close to Union Square in SF. I just had another successful appointment on Thursday and feel compelled to share about it. Dr. Van Camp did an implant 3 month ago and this was the time to fit the crown. I am terrified of any kind of dental work, but the calm office and amazing Staff help a lot. Dr. van Camp was his usual competent and assuring  professional and even took care of filling that seemed to have fallen out on the way. I probably was clutching my teeth to tight. ;-). The visit was longish but only uncomfortable a few times and I reappeared from the 14th floor of the Post Street building with a much more confident smile, no pain whatsoever. Shoes shopping afterwards was l Successful as well. Mission accomplished. Thank you, Dr. Van Camp, Jose and Denis for all the kindness, support and amazing treatments over the years. I am planning to get my teeth  leaned by you all until I’m 80. He promised.

Dr. Van Camp is incredible! So kind and knowledgeable. He and his staff do an amazing job at making you feel comfortable and accepted no matter what hell is going on in your mouth. I’ve been in a few times now and they consistently are just lovely. The space is clean, calm , beautifully decorated, and there is complimentary tea, coffee, and pelligrino to drink while you wait.   Dennis at the front desk does a wonderful job of collecting payment without making you feel uncomfortable, and the doctor’s assistants are so kind! During my last visit I got a little light headed and freaked out after the Novocaine.  They immediately gave me a warm lavender wrap to calm me down and gave me juice to sip on to calm me before continuing. Never have i experienced such amazing dental service!

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

I’m an extremely satisfied fan of Dr. VanCamp’s practice of healthy dentistry. He’s a smart and caring dentist who’s helped me take better care of my teeth for over 15 years. I completely trust his advice and, inevitably follow it–including replacing mercury fillings; having some crooked teeth nicely straightened; dealing with a cracked tooth; and getting the oral cancer check-up. I am now happily used to painless, modern, smart dentistry, thanks to Dr. VanCamp. And just one more thing. Dr. VanCamp’s dental hygienist, Linda, and his receptionist, Dennis, have shared Dr. VanCamp’s commitment to being kind, professional and efficient partners in taking care of my dental needs. Literally and figuratively, my teeth are in good hands with Dr. VanCamp and his team. It all works! Give it a try!.

★★★★★

I have been a patient of Dr. John VanCamp for over 10 years.  He helped me regain my confident smile.  I had a partial denture that I was never happy with and Dr. VanCamp was able to replace it with porcelain implants.  They are much healthier and function like my regular teeth.  I couldn’t be any happier with them.  His holistic approach to dentistry is what made me follow him throughout all these years.  He also replaced all of my mercury fillings safely.  He uses the CEREC technique so that he is able to make your porcelain crowns and onlays while you wait.  He even does a custom staining and glazing so they match your teeth perfectly.  So convenient!  In addition, his staff makes sure you always have a relaxed and comfortable appointment.  They even provide lavender shoulder wraps and warm towels.  I also had Invisalign treatment to correct my bite.  It was an easier experience than I had expected.  Make sure to contact his office if you are looking for a new dentist who does it all.  His biological dentistry is the best!

I went for my first visit to Dr. VanCamp for an infection in one of my wisdom teeth. Usually I get very anxious when going to the dentist but this time was different. Since I got there I felt relaxed. Not only the office feels like a realm of peace, but also Dr. VanCamp has something that makes you feel that everything is going to be alright. Also, Dr. VanCamp is surrounded by an excellent team that makes you feel comfortable all the time. BTW, thanks Dennis for being so attentive in my first appointment! Dr. VanCamp checked my wisdom tooth. He saw clearly that was an infection and gave me what I need it. He also gave me further indications to keep my wisdom teeth in shape until their extraction. Few days after my visit to Dr. VanCamp my tooth didn’t hurt anymore. Now I am looking forward to go for my next visit. Thanks Dr. VanCamp!!

I’ve been going to this dental office for about a year now and love it!  Dr. VanCamp removed all of my mercury fillings and replaced them with biocompatible porcelain… My smile looks amazing and I have never felt better since going through his metal detox program! I rewarded myself with an in-office whitening that brightened up my smile like you can’t imagine.  Great results! I just got back from my regular hygiene and exam appointment.  My teeth have never looked this good and the confidence they have brought me is amazing. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. VanCamp and his staff.  They’ve helped me to achieve better oral health… I’m a patient for life! P.S. I’ve referred some of my coworkers and they all agree going to Dr. VanCamp has changed their opinion of going to the dentist – in a good way!

Hands down the best dentist in SF.  If you are looking for  a dental team who incorporates the latest in technology and materials in a comfortable, relax environment then look no further. The entire team is professional, personable and even cool – very refreshing! I hadn’t been to the dentist for a couple years and knew I needed some hidden dental work – which they easily detected.  They took the time and walked me through each procedure I need to have done.  The DA sat down with me and he helped me strategize on the treatments I need as soon as I can do them and things that I can hold off doing – there was no pressure having anything done. I finally feel that I found a great dentist who will make sure my teeth stay healthy while working within my means.

After never having a cavity or any sort of dental procedure, I broke my back left molar really bad and didn’t know if it could be saved because I was missing about 1/4 of the tooth. Dennis at Dr. Van Camp’s office immediately made me feel welcome and reassured me that I didn’t need to be petrified of having dental work done. I had done my research and upon meeting Dr. Van Camp, I immediately knew I made the right choice.  His passionate tone when he told me that he would do whatever it will take to save my tooth made me feel so much more relaxed and confident about having the procedure done.  He gave me all options and talked me through what he suggested as the best and alternative routes we could take. I didn’t realise that they could do everything there on the spot and was pleasantly surprised that I was going to have my tooth fixed right then and there. When I had a slight freak out after they put the device in my mouth that helps you breathe during the procedure, Dr. Van Camp was very patient and reassuring with me that all was going to be ok.  I was able to make it through the rest of the treatment with flying colours! I went back for a follow up two days later and everything is healing amazingly.  Just in case, Dr. Van Camp gave me his mobile number and told me to call him if I experience any problems whatsoever. I can’t even say how grateful I am that I still have my tooth and I would highly recommend his practice to anyone seeking the highest of dental care professionals.  Dr. Van Camp and his staff did everything in their power to help me, and I have no doubt they will do the same for you. (I am even going to come back in for tooth whitening after my travels, and will be a regular patient with check ups and cleanings from now on instead of having to seek emergency dental care).

I have never had even a good experience with a dentist. I never had a dentist or staff try to get to know me or care who I am until I walked into Dr Van Camps office. From the minute I called(spoke to Dennis) and explained that I was losing my insurance they treated me like I had been a patient for years. The entire staff made me feel super comfortable and I never felt like they were pushing to upsell me. The office space is very impressive with a spa like feel and the work area is filled with high tech computer equipment(no paper needed!!). Dr Van Camp explains everything while he is working on you. They are all dog lovers(super important in this city)!!!  I have been in 3 times in the last 2 weeks and go back in 2 weeks for my free teeth whitening. If you need a new dentist…CALL THEM! you never have to look for another dentist again(unless you move).  PS The doctor even called me to check up on me.

It’s important to me that I have a gay friendly dentist office. I have never felt so comfortable. Dr VanCamp’s office is new, modern, high tech and I feel like I am in a spa. It’s like no office I have ever seen. Lavender shoulder wraps and hot towels make me feel like a million bucks. Safe mercury removal is also very important to me because I wanted all my old fillings replaced with porcelain. Dr VanCamp appears to be one of only a few dentist who practice safe holistic dentistry. I was so happy with the results that I decided to have my missing tooth replaced with a porcelain dental Implant. It went smooth and painless. Metal free dentistry is important to me so knowing that Dr VanCamp is a porcelain implant dentist brings me great comfort. I eventually had my Braces and tooth whitening done by Dr VanCamp and my teeth look amazing!! The office is very high class and everyone there is so wonderful!! I recommend Dr. VanCamp to anyone who is looking for a good alternative cosmetic dentist.

If you’re looking for a dentist and dental staff that’s 5+Stars, I highly recommend VANCAMP DENTISTRY!  After twelve years with my former dentist,  I was looking for a more professional atmosphere and office with  higher quality treatment.  As soon as I entered the office, I felt a calming presence.  Candles lit, healthy refreshments offered, a beautiful decor., and a staff that is absolutely fabulous!  It reminded me of walking in to a nice Sense Spa.  Dennis at the front desk is a gem.  Very professional and genuine, highly qualified in all areas of office management, insurance, and an excellent communicator who is pursuing a dental career himself!  Linda, the dental hygienist was super. After only one minute in the chair for my first cleaning, I felt like I had known her for years. Jose, the dental assistant has a very handsome and calm demeanor and is very professional.  I appreciated not only the aesthetics of the office, but the extra special touches that this office provides:  keeping your lips moist during the procedure 🙂 and a ‘warm face towel’ 🙂    as a final touch!!   Now, Dr. VanCamp…Whoa!  I’ve been going to the dentist since I was a child, and this was “by far” the best experience in a dental office that I’ve ever had.  I’m talking leading edge technology (which I love).  All forms, documents-paperless! easy- to-use computer technology.  State-of-the-art equipment~same day crown replacement, and most importantly for me, friendly, professional, and a sense of calm compassion and respect from Dr. VanCamp. He has a great team, and they all work very well together.  I am an elementary school teacher and one thing that I practice and model with my students is teamwork and respect.  During my procedure today, I noticed Dr. VanCamp’s communication with his staff and assistant Jose. He was very complimentary to his assistant; always thanking him for every bit of assistance that was given.  I was kept well informed throughout the process and experienced no pain!  Dr. VanCamp is pleasantly strong in appearance and has a calm, gentle, sensitive, and professional touch! I am extremely happy that I made the move to VANCAMP DENTISTRY this week, and I highly recommend him.   I’m looking forward to my next visit.  Jimmy Harrington.

I had heard many commercials about Van Camp on the 92.7 morning show and thought, “what the hell, I need a dentist and they are offering a free teeth whitening with cleaning, what do I have to lose?”  I couldn’t have been more impressed the minute I walked into the beautiful office.  Between the great office décor and the helpful staff, I felt like I was at a spa.  The staff is extremely competent and welcoming.  Dr. Van Camp is a really cool/professional dentist who has filled his office with a great staff.  My cleaning was quick and painless and I was given a simple, yet competent, explanation about my teeth.  I actually had to return shortly after my cleaning because I chipped a tooth.  They were able to fit me in quickly and worked with me to help lessen the blow of having to pay for some of the work.  All in all, this place rocks in every way possible & I would recommend it to ANYONE!  I’m just bummed I wasted years dentist-hopping in the City.

I have had a couple bad experiences with dentists. Even when I told them they were hurting me they kept drilling.  It was terrible, I was literally shaking in fear after the last dentist. He never did fix my problem.  Then a friend recommended Dr. VanCamp, although a little far from Marin county, well worth the time.  I decided to get all my mercury fillings out because, like Dr. VanCamp believes in 100%, that they are poisin and not good for our bodies, I would like to be as healthy as possible.  So each side has at least 3 mercury fillings.  Each side take about 3 hours, so I was expecting a lot of pain especially afterward. But nothing.  Not even with the shots.  No pain during or after  and I have completed 2 sides, all my lowers!  (2 appointments) He truly cares and makes sure you are doing ok throughout the entire procedure.  Even better, no temorary caps, he does it all right there in his office while you lay and relax for a while. I got dental insurance specially for this reason, but even with it, I had to pay for more than the insurance did.  But they were extremely flexible with a payment program that I am on now.  Then back to get the rest done. I can’t recommend him and his office staff enough for any procedure.

John VanCamp belongs to a small but growing community of holistic dentists who are aware of the impact (good and bad) that dental work and materials can have on the human body. I have had eight all-ceramic restorations with John in the last six months, and I am very happy with the quality of work. I feel no sensitivity, and teeth look and feel great. My main goal was to replace my old mercury amalgam fillings with new biocompatible materials. I recommend John because he follows guidelines on safe amalgam removal, uses the best currently available materials and technology, such as CEREC 3D, and practices minimally invasive dentistry, thus keeping as much of a healthy tooth as possible. Also, he is well experienced, knowledgeable, has passion for his work, and a pleasant attitude. Finally, I cannot recommend enough to have your amalgams safely removed and replaced with better materials. I started feeling better and better as the number of amalgams in my mouth was approaching zero.

I heard a commercial on 92.7 about Vancamp Dentistry in SF and decide to make an appointment. It was an incredible experience and I usually do not like going to the dentist. The office is very swanky and comfortable. Corrine in the front office was really kind and sweet. Dennis the dental assistant was very efficient and made sure I was doing ok. And Dr. Vancamp was sweet as can be and also very nice to look at. I got the most thorough check up with him. He went over everything in detail with me  and advised me on what he thought would work best for me. The appointment took about an hour. I am really happy with them and I know you would agree if you decide to see them. Julio.

I wanted to offer a write up on a great experience I had with this dentist.  I must have eaten something and I had cracked mI have been super bad a cracking my porcelain filling but when I contacted VanCamp dentistry, they quickly found me an available spot when I could come in and repaired it for me.  I liked their super attentive style and their ability to fit me with my busy schedule. They get an A+ for that.  The office continues to be very amenable to fit me in their schedule when I have a last minute emergency as well.

I have never had such an amazing experience with any professional office, let alone a dentist. Dr. VanCamp and his entire staff are friendly & down-to-earth, extremely knowledgable and motivated to give you the best treatment available. They take the time to educate you at every step, and make sure you’re very comfortable along the way. They utilize the most cutting-edge techniques, including creating crowns while you wait. They also give you steamed face towels and green tea while you listen to really good music throughout the studio. This is a spa-like environment which puts you at ease and makes you feel relaxed and taken care of. I love their whole-health approach and their mission to rid people of toxic mercury in their fillings. I only wish I’d found Dr. VanCamp years ago instead of wasting my time with other dentists that do sub-par work and just aren’t invested in the long term health of their clients. I am so happy with my teeth and my smile!

I had a great experience with Dr. Van Camp. The staff was incredibly friendly and the equipment was state of the art. Digital x-rays were awesome and everything was very comprehensive. I do (sorta) understand the reviews about feeling slightly pressured, but that’s what communication is about. Ask questions, it’s your mouth. Is something necessary? Or do they “suggest” it. For those who are upset that they don’t take your insurance…..well go to someone else! It’s not nuclear science. Some medical practices take certain insurances and some don’t. It’s just how it is.  Overall I had a great experience. I think they’re awesome.

I have always dreaded going to the dentist. Unfortunately, there was a time when I lacked dental insurance and during that time I began to experience various dental issues. As soon as I got dental insurance again, I searched for a holistic dentist and came across Respect Your Mouth. I remember my first visit – feeling nervous and expecting all bad news given the amount of time I went without seeing a dentist. However, my nerves were calmed by the friendly staff and their efforts to make me feel comfortable. The staff is excellent – quick, efficient, and pleasant. Yes, I did receive some bad news, but that was to be expected. But, with the bad news came realistic and reasonable solutions. I left there feeling good and every experience since has been great. Dr. Van Camp, as well as all the other staff, take the time to explain everything and answer questions/concerns. I can honestly say that I no longer dread going to the dentist….well, this dentist 🙂 My mouth has never felt better and my smile has never looked healthier!

I recently saw Dr. VanCamp and his team for the first installment of my mercury detoxification, i.e. replacing my toxic, out-dated amalgam fillings with safe, clean porcelain. I originally went in for a consult and received a set of xrays and a thorough exam by Dr. VanCamp. This was the first time I ever had a dentist show me the xrays and discuss each of my problem areas with me. I needed 6 total restorations– 4 were amalgam fillings that I wanted removed for health reasons (not only was the material toxic, but the fillings had over time caused my teeth to break and decay). The other two needed restorations were composite fillings that were causing decay and needed to be replaced. Dennis at the front desk worked with me after the appointment to prioritize the work that needed to be done and to set up a payment plan that worked for me. Otherwise, I wouldn’t have been able to go through with the treatment. He was also able to schedule my procedure only one week from the date of the consult, even though Dr. VanCamp had a very busy schedule. In the course of that week, some things happened in my personal life and I had to make some changes to my original plan for the first set of restorations– Dennis was more than willing to work things out and was very understanding. The actual procedure went great! I was quite impressed by the lengths Dr. VanCamp goes to protect his patients and staff from further mercury exposure. Sure, it was a bit uncomfortable, like all dental procedures are, but Dr. VanCamp and his staff continually checked in to make sure that I was as comfortable as I could be. Dr. VanCamp was able to make my porcelain inlays right there on the spot– a huge bonus! I was thrilled by the results when Dr. VanCamp shared before and after photos with me. He recommended that I take a few supplements over the course of the next year to help further rid my body heavy metal toxins– he even offered the first round to me at no charge. I’m 100% satisfied with my experience so far and look forward to getting the last few restorations completed in the coming months. Dr. VanCamp and his staff have been awesome communicators and have really responded to my needs and concerns. Dr. VanCamp even checked in with me a few days after the procedure to see how things were going– I’d never had a dentist do that before and I really appreciated it. I would recommended Dr. VanCamp’s Mercury Detox Program to anyone wanting a healthier and more beautiful smile!

Going to the Dentist they say is never fun…Well that adage  is proven completely wrong at Respect Your Mouth under the leadership of Dr.Jon Van Camp. This is what dentistry should be all about – spa like atmosphere, fun, well trained and professional staff who are just cool…no better word for it – they are all just very kind and cool people.  The work performed is done in such a relaxing manner that even with  four items in my mouth while replacing old metal fillings, I literally feel asleep. That is how relaxed I was!  and isn’t that how it should be at the dentist. Anyway – this is the Dentist and the experience my teeth have been looking for! So happy to be a patient and can;t wait till my next appt. Thank you for a great afternoon, I feel truly well cared for, especially my teeth. Holistic dentistry with a spa influenced experience, latest technology combined with a truly lovely staff… Much appreciated. Lili Murad.

Dr. VanCamp and his team are very professional and willing to go out of their way to make sure you are taken care of.  While visiting SF, I had a dental emergency occur mid-morning on a Friday.  Dennis, the office manager, was able to schedule an appt for me with Dr. VanCamp that afternoon.  My appt was after the last regularly scheduled patient for the week; however, Dr. VanCamp and his staff had no issue staying late on a Friday to see that my emergency was resolved.  They did not rush the procedure or compromise the quality of care when they could have otherwise already started their weekend.  Overall, it was a great experience and I certainly recommend Dr. VanCamp to anyone in the SF Area.

When I see my dental appointment reminder I actually look forward to it. Believe it! Dr. Van Camp and his awesome staff — Dennis, Linda and Jose — all go above and beyond. I’ve been a happy patient for 7 years. They’re highly professional and organized with great service. They do everything they can to make you feel comfortable. The lavender spray and music stream really provides a calming atmosphere. Plus, they use the latest technology and seem years ahead of other dentists I’ve tried. One day my crown broke and I called Dennis. Right away, he fit me into the schedule with an appointment that same day. I went home pain free with a new permanent crown.  And they didn’t charge me to have it replaced. I will continue to recommend Dr. Van Camp bc he and his staff truly “Respect your Mouth”.

Like many others out there, I have had my share of dentist horror stories to the point that I was pretty afraid of all of them.  Dr. Van Camp changed that.  He and his staff are compassionate and thoughtful, and made sure I was comfortable with everything every step of the way.  I have been in for an initial consult, cleaning, and free teeth whitening (thank you Fernando and Greg at Energy 92.7!), and then my follow-on appointment to replace two aging and disintegrating fillings was today.  I have had terrible trouble in the past with novocaine not really working on me, but they made sure that I was well anesthetized and didn’t feel anything!  He truly is the best dentist I have ever personally been to, and I would recommend him to everyone!

I wanted to share an amazing experience with you all. I was in SF for work when I ate something that knocked my crown out. I had to visit clients and couldn’t do so with this gap in my teeth. I called Dr. John VanCamp, who was my dentist when I lived in SF and asked if he could fit me in and even though they were booked, they did. He stayed late just help me out! Even though it was not during his regular hours he and his staff were still so sweet to me and they did X-rays, examined my mouth, repaired the crown and even cleaned my teeth. They could have told me sorry we can’t help but they didn’t. It’s rare and a pleasure that Dr. John and his staff make you feel like you are a person and they value you and don’t look at you as you are just a number. So if you are in the marketing for a dentist, I HIGHLY recommend Dr. John and his practice. You won’t be disappointed!!

RESPECT YOUR MOUTH. My amazing first experience. You enter the marble clad stylized mid-century modern office on the 14th floor of a beautifully restored union square building 490 Post.  Doctor John VanCamp (adorable) takes many extra steps to insure your comfort including eucalyptus scented heated chest pad, refreshing warm towels, relaxing music, and very comforting staff. I felt like I was at a luxury spa. Most importantly treatment was fast and painless.  My emergency broken tooth was treated same day in about an hour. Thank You Respect your Mouth ! I’m so grateful to find a dentist I can trust and look forward to going to.
