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

Louie B. from Lake Elsinore, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was visiting my cousin who lives in the bay area over spring break and a filling came out during my trip. She gave me the number to Dr. Krogan and said they’re awesome and should be able to get me in right away. My tooth was throbbing and it felt like something worse was going on. Luckily they were able to get me in the next day. I walked in to this place and was actually impressed…my second thought was holy cow this is going to cost a ton. Turns out it was just a filling that was needed. I even expressed my concern that it felt worse than just a filling and he assured me it was just that. The front staff was very friendly and they informed me of my insurance coverage and gave me the cost upfront. I get extremely nervous about the dentist but they made me feel comfortable. I asked them if they had time for a whitening treatment after the filling and they were happy to do so! Super impressed with the doctor and staff so for anyone looking for a good dentist in San Francisco I highly recommend Dr. Krogan

Hands down the most thorough dental check-up I’ve ever had. I didn’t even know dentists look for the things he looked for. He was friendly, extremely informative and patient. I weirdly can’t wait to go back to see if my oral health has improved as per his recommendations.

D. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kogan is one of the best dentist. he is attentive and cares a lot about his patients. He will not recommend things that is not needed. This staff is nice and professional. They will show you that they care. The clinic is nice, ambiance is good. It’s like you are in a spa compare to a regular clinic. You;ll be able to relax while waiting. Will recommend to a lot of friends.

Ynu G. from Belmont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I did two fillings here and everything was done very well. The process was very well organized, from them verifying my insurance benefits ahead of time and letting me know how much the treatment would cost me before I even come-in. Staff here is amazing, kind and friendly. Doc is very professional and with skills of a surgeon. He is straightforward and very knowledgeable. And spa treatments are a great treat that makes going to the dentist much more pleasant.

Very Professional and competent staff…and a stress free spot…candles, music and a facial massage with warm towel… Shadowed Dr.Kogan, for three days and it was so great, he is by the book guy, speaking as a dental professional. He starts procedure by giving full information and give the client a full control.

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


You’re in very capable hands with Dr. Kogan and his team.  I’ve been a patient for over 3 years and haven’t had any issues during the 12+ visits I’ve had.  The team performing the dental work has always made great efforts to ensure that I’m not in any discomfort.  Dr. Kogan has also been very good about taking time to answer any questions I’ve had.  The peaceful spa environment is also a plus.  It really is a relaxing experience!

Ahmad J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started going to the SF Dental Spa years ago, after some unpleasant experiences with other dentists. Dr. Kogan positively impressed me from the very beginning. His professional care, thoroughness, and knowledge are provided with a very high standard unparalleled to my previous experiences . His office staff are friendly, helpful and always with positive attitude. I never get worried about remembering my appointments, because I am always promptly reminded on by the office.

Jeff Miles (Source: Google)


SF Dental Spa is the best dental practice I’ve ever been to. l had a crown placed by Dr. Kogan a few months ago. It fit perfectly from the first try and it it looked absolutely natural. The whole experience at this dental office is amazing: from the herbal tea in the beginning of your appointment to a massage by a real spa therapist at the end of the appointment. I love coming here, everyone is caring and friendly. Dr. Kogan is a very compassionate and skillful dentist. The only minus is it gets crazy around there during the games, their office is only a block away from the Ball Park, parking can be a pain in the butt on those days. Tip: park at Safeway across the street and get your parking validated.

Mike C. from Sandy, OR (Source: Yelp)


I hate dental offices. But San Fran dental spa is not your ordinary dental office. Dr. Kogan and his wonderful team created this wonderful oasis where you can take a nap, watch a movie or listen to the music while getting your pearly whites fixed. I came to see Dr. Kogan on the recommendation of my brother. He and his family have been going there for many years and they all rave about this dental spa. I wanted to replace my amalgam fillings with white composites. Dr. Kogan took his time explaining what’s involved in the procedure and its pros and cons. I felt absolutely comfortable with Dr. Kogan’s expertise and decided to go ahead with the replacement. It took three visits to replace all of my amalgams and the result was outstanding. The entire team, from Mary at the front desk who stayed on the top of my insurance coverage to Ming, the dental assistant, who was so sweet and gentle during the procedure and massage lady who was just wonderful at working my tired shoulder muscles after the procedure was done. My mouth is metal free now and thanks to Dr. Kogan feels fresh and healthy. There was zero sensitivity during and after the treatment. Through out the procedure, he made sure I was comfortable. He asked me several times if I was tired and wanted to take a break. Dr. Kogan is a master of his craft – highly skilled, highly knowledgeable, I can’t recommend him enough. My only complaint is that they stopped confirming appointments by phone calls. They send you reminders by email and text, but I miss those good old phone call reminders rom my dentist:)

Terry I. from Sparks, NV (Source: Yelp)


Wow! I loved this dental spa! I had my first visit here yeterday and it was great. The office is beautiful, spacious and very, very clean. Even the bathroom is sparkling clean and beautiful. This place smells so nice, like a spa. Relaxing background music, cup of herbal tea, and you feel that you are in a spa. The whole team is friendly and professional. Dr. Kogan is awesome. Kind, gentle and knowledgable. I love that he practices Minimally invasive dentistry (read his bio on their website). So i had a couple of small cavities and he recommended to treat them conservatively with a combination of special topical medications that block the caries and stop it from progressing. I loved the idea of preserving my teeth fot life by nurturing and reinforcing them instead of drilling them away. So far my experience at the Dental Spa has been amazing. These guys are the best in town.

Joe W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow! I had never seen a dental office like this. Having had my share of bad dental experiences, i was in search of the dentist whose opinion i could trust. A friend recommended The Dental Spa, and from the first visit i was impressed. Dr. Kogan wowed me with his knowleage and patience. He really listened to me, heard my concerns and was able to address them with an intelligent plan and a sraight forward explanation that just made sence. The entire experience that Dental Spa provides is very calming, high quality and professional. They place big emphasis on patient’s comfort. They offer organic tea and mineral water. They have a spa therapist for quick spa treatments, and MASSAGE! I am not kidding , you can have a massage after your dental treatment. When they gave me massage after keeping my mouth opened for an hour while the dentist was fixing my two back fillings, i forgot all about my fillings and fell askeep right in the dental chair. I am telling you, massage after the dental procedure is the best thing that happened to dentistry in a long time. Their hygienist is great, very gentle and soft spoken. Front desk people are friendly and helpful. They work with your insurance and always inform you of your charges before-hand. You go into the procedure fully informed of what your insurance will cover and what you are supposed to pay. They do collect half of the payment upfront when you schedule appointments, which makes sence, they want you to show-up for your appointment and not waist doctor’s time. Dr. Kogan is excellent. He is very sharp and knowledgeable. He checks-up on you constantly during the treatment to make sure that you are doing ok. He asks you if you are tired and need a break and gives you as many breaks as you need. I never feel rushed by him and that makes me feel well cared for and more relaxed. All teatment that Dr.Kogan has done so far on my teeth has been great, felt comfortable right after anesthetic wore away and never ever hurt. The Dental Spa is located in the great neighborhood, a block from the Ball Park, a few blocks from Embarcadero. Often after my dental appointment, I take a pleasant stroll down to the Ball Park and along the Bay, enjoy a beautiful view of the Bay bridge and walk leasurely to the Ferry Building. I enjoy my visits to the Dental Spa. I had never thought i would say that about a dentist’s office. I recommend Dr. Kogan and the Dental Spa to all my family and friends.

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


Dr. Kogan is the best!!! He did veneers on my upper teeth – they are absulutely beautiful and look so natural. I can now smile wide and be proud of my gourgeous teeth. Dr. Kogan indeed is a master of his craft. So much attention to details, scrupulous work and human energy goes into into this process. He worked on my veneers until they were absolutely perfect. I love my new smile! Thank you doc, God bless you!

Elodie J. from Lafayette, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been great going to the Dental Spa, very friendly and relaxing place. I rarely had the time to enjoy the complimentary spa treatment after dental services but it was always nice to have the choice. Dr. Kogan is very knowledgeable and provided detailed explanations of issues I had and how to treat them. I definitely recommend the place.

Anna E. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow, I’ve never seen anything like this dental office. I was referred to SF Dental Spa by my cousin, later I found out that several of my co-workers go there too. Let me start by saying that they did a great jog designing their facility and creating a spa-like dental practice that has a fill of a five star resort. A huge water fall, a huge palm tree, candles, relaxing spa music, massage therapist. Wow! Now about the dental team – they are superb! Dr. Kogan is the most knowledgable and corkiest dentist I’ve met in my life. Anything you want to ask him, he’ll know the answer to. Definitely up-to-speed with all the latest advances in dentistry (and politics). I love that Dr. Kogan is a “minimally invasive” dentist (see his bio on their website). I had two cavities on my teeth, Dr. Kogan said they were small and could be treated conservatively. So he prescribed an ozone therapy with an herbal rinse and intense flossing (yea, I know, I hate the flossing part). Six months later – cavities have stabilized, will be closely monitored. Mind-blowing technology… The entire team is top notch. Everybody from the assistants, front desk to the spa therapist make you feel at ease. They also work with your insurance and make sure you get your treatment covered by your insurance plan. This has been the best dental experience in my life. Go check out SF Dental spa! You will understand what I am talking about.

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


I came here for an emergency visit yesterday. Awful pain in my back molar had kept me awake the entire night, no pain medications had helped. I could not find a dentist who is opened in SF now during COVID 19. Then a friend of mine recommended to try her dentist, SF Dental Spa. I e-mailed them, they responded immediately. They scheduled a virtual consult first. Dr. Kogan was very attentive, asked a lot of questions and was able to diagnose the infection. He said I’d have to come in to see him in the office. They screened me for COVID 19 symptoms to insure I am healthy to be seen during the video call, then they screened me again when I walked into the office, measured my temperature and everything. Dr. Kogan had to open my tooth and drain the infection. He was very thorough and fast, the hole procedure took about 30 minutes. I did not feel a thing. With the COVID19 fears, I was very worried. But the doctor and his assistant were wearing all the protective gear, the office looked and felt and smelled very clean and sterile. I felt very safe. Most importantly, I am happy to report that since anesthesia wore off I have not felt any pain in the tooth. Dr. Kogan is the best, very competent and caring. The whole experience was amazing. I’ll definitely be back once things settle down.

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


Dr. Kogan was great. The care was great and it was always a low-stress visit yet I felt it was comprehensive care. 4 years of care. I see night guard comments as a negative here, I got a night guard while a patient here and have loved having it. I grind my teeth and it’s been helpful. So in my case it made sense. I never had invisalign pushed. My wife got invisalign, which she came into her first appointment intending to get – and she had a great experience on that side. We departed the Bay Area so no longer patients.

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


I’ve been seeing Dr. Kogan for about 4 years. My only complaint is that I had had a groupon dentist bully me into getting unnecessary fillings that make it impossible to floss, and when I started to see Dr. Kogan, he took a very close look at those fillings. He never said that they were unnecessary – Dr. Kogan was too polite about it. The only filling that I’ve had to deal with in four years with Dr. Kogan is a redo of one of my back molar fillings that had broken. Good dentists do very little work. Dentists always seem a little scammy to me, but I trust Dr. Kogan and he persuaded me to get my first mouthguard which has saved me from a lot of pain. Dr. Kogan uses some older tech but I have never been concerned about the quality of his work. He does scaling on my teeth every time himself so I know he is keeping a close eye on my teeth. Also, the pricing is extremely fair.

Hayley B. from Belmont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am terrified of dentists! Seriously … HORRIFIED! Dark small offices, with mad scientist waving a bombardment of scary devises at you. That’s of course, after you’ve been securely strapped onto a torture chair. I had my share of such dental experiences in my life. But recently the dark clouds moved away, the sun shinned through, and the heavenly gates opened, as I was introduced to San Francisco Dental Spa and the team of Dr. Kogan’s. Because of an extended stay abroad (and other less glamorous events), my teeth were in serious need of examination and detailed attention , and I was fortunate enough to be referred to this wonderful team by my medical provider. I was skeptical, but from the start I was pleasantly surprised. Everyone here were supportive, informative, thoroughly professional and gracious. And after a few visits (well, let’s just say a “few”), my teeth, gums, and surrounding structures are not only pretty to look at, but I can chew gum, aggressively rip meat from a bone with my teeth and drink liquids without soiling my shirt. From the warm and congenial receptionist greeting, through my consultations, recommendations, treatment … not to mention the very relaxing and ear pleasing tunes playing in the background during each visit, spa treatments, water and tea offering, steam towel serving… I’m now the owner of a beautiful and healthy smile and healthy mouth, and truly cannot recommend SF Dental Spa highly enough. If you’re seriously looking for a dental office to call home, which is warm, caring and professional, then look no further, come to SF Dental Spa and consider yourself fortunate to have found the best dental care provider in San Francisco.

Best dental practice in SF. Caring and friendly personnel . Help you with your insurance, check your insurance before you do the treatment so you know what to expect financially. Doctor is excellent, does quality work, all the treatment that he’s done on my teeth lasts without any problems. He is very professional and serious, I trust him 100%.

Reijun H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Kogan for more than seven years and will never go to any other dentist.  Every other experience I’ve had at my previous dentists are inferior compared to Dr. Kogan’s practice.  He pointed out things about health and appearance of my teeth and gum that were left neglected by other dentists I’ve gone in the past.  Not only Dr. Kogan very skilled, he cares a lot about his patients.  With his practice, I feel that my oral health and appearance of my teeth is at the best as it can be.  Not only is Dr. Kogan himself a very good doctor who is always pleasant to go to, his entire team of staff is wonderful.  Every single person at his practice is so warm, caring, and kind.  The complementary spa treatment is wonderful and I actually don’t even want to get up from the chair after the treatment, because it’s so relaxing.  The staff is so caring that they even remember my favorite spa treatment whenever I return!  Highly recommended.

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


Everyone knows, finding a great dentist can be really hard to do. It took me three years, going from one dentist to the next, just to hear another sales pitch. …Until I found SF Dental Spa. This place is incredible. There are so many dentists who will tell you that you need this or you need that for your teeth. I had dentists tell me that they want to do all kinds of treatment on my teeth, replace fillings with crowns, treat my receded gums with gum grafts, or to replace my $400 guard every 2 years, and I was getting sick of it. So when a friend recommended I check out SF Dental Spa, I decided to give it a try. That was 2 years ago and I’ve been so happy with the service I’ve received ever since. They are caring and thorough. They treat you like family. I have been having issues with a crown I got at my previous dentist and Dr. K been monitoring it for me. He adjusted it and made it comfortable and given me recommendations on how to preserve it until I need to get a new crown. They aren’t trying to rush procedures onto you. They really think about you as a person and give you the same advice they’d give their own family. I’m very impressed with SF dental Spa and highly recommend checking it out to anyone who is in need of a trustworthy dentist. Dr. K, Mary, Tamila, and the rest of this great team, you guys Rock!

Lisa P. from Belmont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a customer here since they opened this office over a decade ago. I have always received the best care by Dr. Alex and his wonderful team. Dr. Alex is an excellent dentist. He is honest and passionate about his work. He practices minimally invasive dentistry  and that’s very important to me. His recommendations are always carefully thought through, evidence based and with the main purpose of keeping teeth for life. My grandparents lost their teeth in their 50s They had to wear extremely uncomfortable plastic dentures and it  really affected their quality of life. I hope to preserve my teeth for as long as I can and I know that Dr. Alex is an expert at that. I love this place and recommend it highly. A few of my co-workers come to SF Dental spa and are very happy.

I’ve been a patient here for many years. I came here after several bad experiences at other dental offices and Dr. Kogan literally saved my teeth. SF Dental Spa is a group of wonderful professionals that are superb at what they do. If you are looking for a great dentist, I would recommend Dr. Kogan and his team with all my heart.

Oscar Feldman (Source: Google)


I am new to SF Dental Spa and Dr. Kogan. I had my initial visit and then two fillings done. Dr. Kogan is very caring and friendly. He has very light touch and easygoing personality. And most importantly I did not feel a thing. I listened to the music in the headphones and the procedure flew by very quickly. Then I got a massage by their spa therapist. Wow! Thank you SF Dental Spa for a wonderful service!

Ken L. from Belmont, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to see Dr. Kogan three months ago. Let me start by saying, he has the most beautiful office I have ever seen in my life. You feel like you are in a five star resort. The front desk is very sweet and nice. While you wait, they serve you water and organic tea. Then you meet Dr. Kogan. He is a wealth of knowledge. Very thorough and professional. He takes his time to examine your teeth, gums and jaw. Then he explains with the right amount of detail, showing the pictures of my teeth on the screen. He answers all your questions patiently and addresses all of your concerns. I am paranoid about my teeth and I am very cautious with the dentist’s that I let touch my teeth. Let me tell you this, my teeth are in great shape and Dr. Kogan confirmed it. But I have always had problems with my jaw and Dr. Kogan picked up on that very quickly. Instead of just looking for cavities on your teeth, he looks at the entire mouth and overall health. He was the first dentist who correctly diagnosed the root of my jaw problem. He prescribed a course of exercises for TMJ and my jaw. He made me a custom guard. Fast forward two months, my jaw feels wonderful – no pain, no tension, no cracking sounds when I open my mouth. Dr. Kogan is amazing, he is a true healer. I thank you Doc!

David V. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Friendly front desk. Gentle and respectful dental assistant, Dr K is efficient but also communicative and sensitive to concerns about discomfort and anxiety – a good person.  warm towel at the end of the procedure is a nice touch.  They take and handle (delta) dental insurance (unlike some others who want you to pay full and get your own reimbursement – they take care of all of this).  Convenient to the N and T Muni Line and Caltrain; also, across from the Safeway so if you are (truly) having a short procedure and you need to do some grocery shopping, there is free parking).

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


Amazing dentitst! 10/10 I stayed in SF for two years on my work contract and I had a pleasure choosing SF Dental Spa as my dental office. It was the best dental experience in my life. I now live in Florida and am seriously considering flying in to see Dr. Kogan for my anual check-ups. And it’s coming from a dental phobe who stays away from dentists until something starts hurting. Initially I came to see Dr. Kogan for a sensitive tooth. Sparkling clean, beautiful, spa-like facilities. Dr. Kogan is very knowledgable and upfront. He takes a great care of his patients, he gives out this wibe of confidence and wisdome (even though he is pretty young, in his early 40’s). His lovely wife Julia is so sweet and always welcoming. The whole team of SF dental spa is wonderful! A lot of my co-workers go here and everybody is very happy.

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


I broke my tooth eating steak and was in a lot of pain. I called The Dental Spa, a pleasant voice answered the phone. She patiently listened to me panicking, then kindly suggested to take motrin and come to the office and they would see me imediately. I work two blocks away from the Dental Spa, so in 10 minutes i was there. There were three other patients waiting in the reception. The office is gourgeous, elegant and peacefull, you feel relaxed right away, you feel like you are in a spa. Receptionist kindly greated me and said they would see me shortly. By this time my pain got really bad. Assistant came out in a few minutes and took me in. She qickly assesed my situation, took some x-rays and said that doctor would be in in a few. She was a sweetheart, she was so gentle with her xrays not to cause me any more pain than i was already in . In a mean time i am sitting in a beautiful treatment room with a tv-monitor in front of me running beautiful pictures of diferent places around the world (i later found out that these were dr. Kogan’s travel photos), very interesting and entertaining. Dr. Kogan comes in in few minutes. Very tall and handsome;) Softspoken, he takes my last worries away. He patiently listens to my sobbing story, askes a few questions, reassures me that they would take a good care of me and goes on to examining my broken tooth. He was very thorough and informative. He took his time to explain the condition of my tooth – apparently the tooth was damaged badly all the way to the nerve and it needed a root canal, crown and a surgery. He explained diferent options including an implant, answered all my questions. I spent nearly three hours at the Dental Spa. Dr. Kogan had to perforn an emergency root canal on my tooth to relieve the pain, then his assistant placed a temporary crown. It was a very busy day for them, they had a lot of patients coming and leaving but i felt that i had all the attention i needed. Dr. Kogan was very attentive and caring. He numbed the tooth, took away the pain and the entite treatment was completely painless. After everything was done they sent me home with antibiotics so i did not have to drag myself to the pharmacy. I am going back to see Dr Kogan in two weeks and i am looking forward to it. The best and most professional care i recieved from a dentist in my life. Five star care. I recommend the Dental Spa highly!

SF Dental Spa is by far the most pleasant dental experience I have had in my life. My teeth were not in good shape after years of neglect and avoidance of dentists. Dr. Kogan spent several months fixing my teeth. There were a lot of dental visits but I am glad it was at the dental spa because they made my visits very easy, friendly and as relaxing as possible. Most importantly all treatment was pain free. Dr. Kogan always made sure I was comfortable and did not feel any pain. My mouth was treated with a lot of respect and I am greatful to Dr. Kogan and his team for the great job that they did.

Melinda G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have not been to the dentist in quite some time for a variety of reasons. My visit with The Dental Spa was really very nice. They were friendly and patient with me. I ended up needing a crown and they worked to make sure the sizing of it was going to fit just right and try to prevent further problems down the road. I appreciated their commitment to my oral health. I would recommend this dental spa and encourage their nice treatments to help make the visit that much more pleasant.

Tommy H. from New Almaden, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to SF dental spa with the pain on the right side of my mouth. The dentist who I had seen previously recommended a root canal and a crown. I came to see Dr.Kogan for a second opinion. After carefully examining my mouth, my face and my jaw, Dr. Kogan explained that I did not need a root canal or a crown, and that the problem was caused by my TMJ and the exhausted jaw muscles. He gave me the excersises for the TMJ/jaw, prescribed the meds and made a splint. The pain was cured and never came back. It’s been two years, and up to this day I am thankful to Dr.Kogan for saving me from unnessary treatment and pain. I’ll always be his patient and biggest fan.

Susan P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Kogan for taking care of my teeth. I love coming to this beautiful office where everyone is exceptionaly friendly. I have been a patient of Dr. Kogan for over 5 years, and every time I come in, I am greeted with a smile, a cup of tea and a relaxing spa treatment. Dr. Kogan is very knowledgeable, attentive, and always finds time to answer my questions. Last year, I replaced my two front crowns, and they look phenomenal. I was very hesitant to start the work, because I remember how painful the process was 10 years ago at another dental office(not going to name names).  However, Dr. Kogan made my appointments very easy, fun even (I watched a very funny movie).  Everything was painless and easy: front desk took care of my insurance without a glitch, assistants made every effort to ensure that I am comfortable at all times.  The way this office works with my ininsurance is another reason I love them.  Their estimates are always correct, and there is never unexpected expense on my part.  I am so happy I found you, dental spa!!!!! Thank you for always pampering me and taking stress out of going to the dentist!

Clark C. from South Beach, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I saw Dr. Kogan for an emergency visit last week. Even though their office is closed for shelter in place, he and his assistant came out to see me. I contacted them by voice mail, doctor then saw me via their virtual consultation system and told me that I need to come in to the office because my infection was getting worse. In the office they drained the infected tooth, put the medication in and prescribed me antibiotic. During these crazy times you worry about catching the virus. Everything was extra sterile and clean, they used special masks and shields, I felt safe and happy. My tooth feels great, there is no pain. Dr. Kogan’s and his assistant did a great job – as always.

Kelly H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I know I am not alone in saying: I hate going to the dentist… They make me nervous and It smells weird. SF Dental Spa is different. They’ve figured out and fixed what’s wrong with most dental offices. Cool Branding: They feel solid and highly recognizable. Not your typical “mouth and teeth” logo, and the name even feels relaxing. Atmosphere: The waiting room is spacious and welcoming, it’s clean and chic with nice seating and decor. They offer you plain and sparkling water and hot tea. When it came time for the main event, I was seated in a nice room with huge windows that looked onto the street and people walking by. There is also a flat screen in front of you playing beautiful scenery from the most exotic places on Earth. Efficiency: Between the latest dental technology and their experienced team, Dental Spa isn’t messing around. There wasn’t a wasted moment, every appointment is very efficient, precise and painless. People: Everyone here is handsome or pretty with great skin and teeth, not to mention super friendly and professional. It’s like a commercial that became reality. Oh yeah, they fixed my teeth too 🙂

Kayla B. from Ontario, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came in for an issue with my lower right wisdom tooth, not because it was painful, but because it was growing out pushing forward against my teeth and if it didn’t get fixed basically my teeth would’ve decayed in that general area and would’ve shifted my teeth which are pretty much straight. So the doctor did mention my several options that could happen. One is to just have it removed or the other option was to place a wire between my wisdom tooth and the tooth next to it so the wisdom tooth will continue to grow, but straight out and not pushing forward. So for me I was really scared of going under to get a tooth out, so I went ahead and chose to have the wire placed to just help my tooth grow out straight. After a few sessions of readjusting the wire, my wisdom tooth has finally grown out and completely straight! It was a bit of a painful process, but it was all worth it for me to not having to go under. I just appreciated how comforting everyone made me, letting me feel like I actually had an option as to what I wanted to do, and letting me know exactly what was going to happen each step of the way.


Dr. Kogan is an expert in the art of cosmetic, general and orthodontic dentistry with a Bachelor of Science Degree from the University of San Francisco (1996) and Doctorate in Dental Medicine from the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry (1999). He is a member of American Dental Association, American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, California Dental Association, San Francisco Dental Society. Dr. Kogan is an Assistant Clinical Professor at the University of the Pacific School of Dentistry. He is on the faculty at the Department of Restorative Dentistry. Dr. Kogan has been named the top cosmetic dentist by the Consumers’ Research Council of America for the past three years. Dr. Kogan has dedicated his state of the art spa-like dental practice to his patients who are seeking to improve, renew, and rehabilitate not only their smile, but also their overall health. Dr. Kogan practices dentistry which takes into account the whole person and recognizes that dental conditions and procedures impact a person’s general health and well-being. The health of the mouth and the health of the body simply cannot be separated, Dr. Kogan maintains. With that in mind, Dr. Kogan practices Minimally Invasive dentistry, or Microdentistry. The goal of minimally invasive dentistry is to conserve healthy tooth structure. It focuses on prevention, remineralization, and minimal dentist intervention.
