I am definitely one of those people that is afraid of the dentist and often on the lookout for any “excuse” to postpone my appt. However, after switching to Dr. Bhuva my fears have been allayed. While scheduling my appt, the staff was able to answer all my questions regarding my insurance. Upon entering the beautifully designed office, the entire team, from the front desk women to the hygienist were welcoming and friendly. I did not even have to wait to be seen! Dr. Bhuva has a great chair-side manner, was gentle on my teeth, and very friendly during my exam. The office has all the latest technologies (digital xrays, etc). I did need some work done and she went above and beyond to explain the procedure to me in a way I could understand. It is evident that Dr. Bhuva is highly experienced, skilled, and intelligent (Harvard trained), yet she took the time to answer my naive questions and concerns in a calm and reassuring manner. I could tell she genuinely cares about her patients and did not try and sell me any work I did not need, but rather opted to take a “watch and wait” approach to any borderline issues. I have already referred all my friends in the area to her–she is the rare combination of both a 10 on technical proficiency and 10 on patient manners. I only wish I found her years ago…

I understand the Dentist isn’t a fun place for most, but every time I go here, it’s a pleasant, easy and informative experience. Their hygienists are professional, compassionate and incredibly smart. Yesterday, Inna took the time to educate me on what she was looking at in my X-rays, showed me the year of year change in one area, elaborated on the value of flossing (no lecture!) and how it could have prevented the cavity. I was so engaged, didn’t feel rushed and learned so much. Right there in the chair I complimented and thanked her for taking the time and interest in my future oral health. Definitely deserves to be recognized and worth sharing! Dr Buhva is great too, thankfully I have minimal experience with her, but know I’m in good hands when I go back for my filling!

Dr. Bhuva is awesome! I have had 5 dentists in my life and Dr. Bhuva is far and away the best. She is extremely professional and friendly and does a great job making you feel comfortable while you are undergoing any procedure. Her staff is top-notch and they always brighten up my day when I come in. They get you in and out in no time and are very flexible for cancellations or rescheduling. Location is ideal if you work anywhere in downtown SF. I cannot recommend her any more!

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


Don’t understand the negative reviews, as my experience was great. I was referred to by a friend, but on the night before my set appointment my tooth actually cracked (ugh!) I called their office first thing in the morning and they were able to rush me in for an earlier appointment to help care for my dental emergency. Dr. Bhuva and her staff addressed my issue immediately and I was able to get back on my feet soon after. I really appreciated their swift help and their no-fluff approach–I was in and out. It was straight to the chair for xrays, and then immediate support from the doctor, then I was on my way. For someone who really does not like going to the dentist, this place has put my mind at ease.

Everyone in Dr. Bhuva’s office was friendly, knowledgeable and made my visit to the dentist pleasant (is that possible???) From Karen and Clara at the front desk to my hygenist to Dr. Bhuva – everyone was awesome. I loved that my appointment started on time and felt that Dr. Bhuva gave me the most thorough dental exam I’ve ever had, it was fantastic!

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


Best dentist and service I could imagine! I came to Dr. Bhuva because I needed a dentist near my office and found the best team you could ask for. In addition to dental services I straightened my teeth with Invisalign and had the BEST experience possible. I had had braces in high school and, like a dum dum I stopped wearing my retainer, which caused crowding in my lower and upper teeth as well as a bite that made it hard to eat pizza or sandwiches. Luckily, Dr. Bhuva was able to straighten everything out, and although it wasn’t easy, the team made the experience as painless as possible and my smile has never been better!

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


This practice is amazing. Best dentist I’ve met in years. Just moved here and was overdue for a cleaning. Straight forward cleaning and reminder of how important oral hygiene is. My next check up was even better! Friendly and helpful. Professional and kind. Even recommended an awesome summer camp for my son as well as a pediatric dental practice. Much appreciated.

Today I just had the great fortune of receiving a truly great dental experience with Dr. Jasmine Bhuva. After receiving some quick x-rays, I ‘enjoyed’ a deftly executed and masterful cleaning by Dr. Bhuva. Despite having numerous dentists in the past, none were as cordial and informative as Dr. Bhuva. The practice space had a great vibe, view, and was equipped with the latest technology. I left with a hug, goodie bag, and dentist for life ;

Margaret M. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Working with Dr. Bhuva and her team has easily been the best experience I’ve ever had with a dental office. Dr. Bhuva is warm, knowledgable. and always took the time to answer my questions. The team are very friendly and professional. Scheduling is quick and easy and appointments always start on time. I cannot recommend this practice enough!

John C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t think to write reviews because who cares what I think. You don’t know who I am or that my experiences are most likely not yours. But people tell me that yelp has helped them in the past. The best referrals are always from friends and word of mouth from people you trust. This is how I found Dr. Jasmine Bhuva, DDS and Dr. Bradley Shepard, DDS. many years ago. I have never had a bad experience. Sure, they ask if I would like additional services, but that’s what they are there for, to look after your teeth and smile. The bottom line is that they are professional in every way and I feel lucky to have found them.

Lizzy U. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bhuva is a fantastic dentist! A friend of mine recommended her and I have had an excellent experience with her and her staff. I went in a few weeks ago for my yearly check up and a cleaning where they discovered I had a cavity that we need to be filled. During my initial visit Dr. Bhuva and one of her assistance were super informative, telling me the best toothbrush to use for my gums, the best mouth wash and how to floss with a permanent bottom retainer that I have. When I came back two weeks later to get my cavity filled I was really nervous (unnecessarily so) it was only my second cavity and it has been years so I’d built it up in my head. Dr. Bhuva was super nice and gentle, the whole process took about 20 minutes and was 100% painless. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Bhuva to anyone looking for a stellar dentist in SF. She is located right by the financial district/SOMA so it’s convenient to go during work. They also are very timely, both times I was brought back to a room within five minutes of sitting down — very efficient!

Dr. Bhuva and her support staff were very warm and helpful. This was my first visit to the dentist on my new insurance and after a year-long hiatus so I was expecting the experience to stressful. However, I was pleasantly surprised by how smoothly everything went. I also appreciated how gentle Dr Bhuva was and that she walked me through every procedure. Will definitely be making her my new dentist!

Sunitha N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long overdue! I’ve been going to Dr. Bhuva and team for 2 plus years now and they constantly exceed my expectations. I’ve gone through many procedures from deep cleanings, fillings and crowns. It can be nerve racking because as a patient I have no idea what the best treatment could be that’s why it’s so important to have a dentist you trust. Dr. Bhuva knows exactly what she is doing and more importantly she really takes the time to explain everything to you and puts you at ease. You can tell she really does care about her patients. All this combined with some stellar hygienists and front office staff (you guys are the best) makes this the best dentist office in SF. Funny enough too I wrote this review up earlier this week and forgot to post it. Well, I just got a call from Dr. Bhuva – she was checking in to make sure I was doing ok after my root canal. Wow, didn’t think I could love a dentist practice this much. Amazing team and I seriously can’t recommend this place enough!

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


Hands down, the best dentist and team I’ve been to. Dr. Bhuva is incredibly sweet and so caring – during procedures, she takes the time to explain important things to you. The office is so clean and the front desk receptionists are so helpful and caring (thank you Hannah!) Every time I leave the office, I feel so grateful for finding such a fantastic dentist. Highly recommended!

Christopher C. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bhuva’s practice is the nicest dental office I’ve ever been to. For one, I didn’t have to wait.  I’m a busy person and I expect my appointment times to be held.  Next, I came in for a cleaning and checkup. I don’t appreciate being upsold other services and they didn’t do that. All the staff was very professional and courteous. Everyone from Lisa at the front desk, to Angela who did the thorough cleaning, and Dr Bhuva were great and friendly. Their office is also very high tech and efficient.  On time, thorough, and professional.  I highly recommend them.

David B. T. from Northampton, MA (Source: Yelp)


Always a very good experience. Dr. Bhuva is calm and friendly, explains what she’s doing and what you need to know. The staff are also personal and professional. Monica, the hygienist I usually see, always remembers my name and asks about my family. All of it adds up to an unusually pleasant visit to the dentist.

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


Recently moved to the city and was up for a dentist appointment. I chose to visit Dr. Bhuva’s office based on the wonderful yelp reviews! Customer service is excellent here. The ladies at the front desk are so friendly, helpful, and answered all of my questions thoroughly. My hygienist was Monica, and she was probably the most friendliest dental hygienist I’ve ever had. You can tell that she really cares for her patients; she is very personable and gentle. Highly recommended.

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


This practice is amazing!!! The staff is super friendly. The dental hygienist that worked on my teeth was very knowledgeable and explained a lot of things about proper mouth care that I did not know. My husband recommended Dr. Bhuva to me after I had gone to a dentist that I did not like. The previous dentist wanted to do an unnecessary root canal that Dr. Bhuva said I did not need. The office even sent my husband a bottle of wine for recommending me as a patient! Best dentist ever!

Vivek Shah (Source: Google)


Dr. Bhuva is absolutely incredible! Have been going to her for almost 15 years and she is a wonderful dentist. She’s patient, thorough and ensures any treatment is done right and that you’re comfortable in the process. Every time I go in, I know she will do what’s best. In fact, while many dentists may be quick to do expensive dental work, she’s the opposite. For example, I had a cavity but it was at a reversible stage; instead of filling it, she suggested that I take active care and that the cavity could be managed without having to fill it. She’s wonderful and so is her supporting staff. Highly, highly recommended!

Jay S. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Started working in SF recently, so have been meaning to find a dentist based out of this area since it makes it easier on the work schedule. Good thing I found Dr Bhuva, couldn’t be happier with the experience the other day. Usually I’m a bit skiddish on new dentists because often times they seem more like salesmen then dentist. Fortunately, Dr Bhuva wasn’t like that and I actually left the office feeling like I didn’t get ripped off. The building itself is an older one, but their dental office seems state of the art. The location is great if you work in SF as well. During my visit, I was in and out in about an hour and will definitely be going back in the future should my teeth warrant as such!

Jay D. from Lakewood, OH (Source: Yelp)


I should have written this review a long time ago. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Bhuva’s for the past 5+ years. Here is a quick bit of insight: 1) Monica – Do you have gum issues? Do you seem to keep having oral issues despite your best efforts? Monica is the most AMAZING hygenist! Before I met her I was brushing 3x a day and flossing after every meal, yet continued to have issues. She was able to diagnose my issues, identify my weak spots and teach me how to overcome them. You might laugh at my ignorance, but you also probably have gingivitis, and i don’t. My wife and I moved to Ohio and we still fly back to SF to have Monica clean our teeth. 2) Dr. Bhuva – Do you trust your dentist? I TRUST Dr. Bhuva. She never EVER tries to sell you some crazy dental product you don’t need or an unnecessary filling. She is all about doing what’s necessary. Honestly, i don’t even have to see Dr. B anymore because Monica keeps everything in tip top shape. 3) The office staff – they ALWAYS fit me in somehow. I have no idea, how they work their magic. I also appreciate all of the confirmation emails and calls. They are very fastidious. When I walk in they greet me by name and a smile. You can get down with Dr. Bhuva and Monica or get down with some donkey dentures. Your choice.

Hadn’t been to the dentist in years, but looking to get back on track. Dr. Bhuva and every one of her staff are amazing. I’m a couple of months into my Invisalign treatment (something I have wanted to do forever since my ortho left some gaps when I was a teen). I couldn’t be more impressed with each and every appointment and how smoothly everything runs.

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


I had been looking for a good, permanent dentist in SF for a long long time. Here are some things that I was able to accomplish in a smaller amount of time. -Grad school -Lived in 4 different neighborhoods -Met, dated, got engaged to, and married my wife I’ve tried numerous dentists. Some didn’t seem all that competent. Others gave me “hot box”-like high-pressure sales tactics, trying to convince me that I not only needed new work done, but that all my previous dental work needed to be RE-done. Dr. Bhuva is smart, friendly, and gives you the genuine sense that she actually cares about you and your mouth. She actually called a day or two after a routine cavity filling, just to make sure I was ok. SOLD!

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


I understand the Dentist isn’t a fun place for most, but every time I go here, it’s a pleasant, easy and informative experience. Their hygienists are professional, compassionate and incredibly smart.

Natalia M. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


I typically never write reviews, but felt that this definitely deserved one! Since I got Invisalign, as you can imagine I’ve been into the dentist office multiple times over the last year. And every time I visit, Dr. Bhuva and everyone at the office is super welcoming, friendly, and efficient. I was recommended to Dr. Bhuva over two years ago, and have had consistent good quality service every time. I highly recommend!

Eric Z. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Bhuva and her staff were all excellent. I was a bit nervous about going to the dentist because I had not been in a long time, and Dr. Bhuva was awesome. Both her, and her assistant have EXCELLENT chair side manner, and were very accommodating and comforting. Dr. Bhuva clearly explained everything she was going to do before she did it, and was a pleasure to work with.

Juan C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve ever had! I’ve never been a huge fan of going to the dentist (find me someone who is), but Dr. Bhuva changed that for me completely. Her calendar is usually very accommodating and I’ve never had to wait too long to get an appointment. The wait time at her office is also very quick, I’ve never spent more than 10 minutes in the waiting room, and I’m usually early to my appointments. All the staff there are friendly, easy to talk to, and very helpful. For every cleaning, her hygienist was very good and thorough. She also took the time to answer the many questions I had in a professional manner. I started using invisalign with her, and it’s been fantastic! She was always available by phone to answer questions. There was a minor hiccup in my invisalign use due to traveling, but she worked out a great solution. She even set up an evening phone appointment one day when I wasn’t available. If you’re looking for a new dentist, I couldn’t recommend Dr. Bhuva more!

Daniel C. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bhuva is the best dentist in America. My somewhat detrimental philosophy for going to the dentist is: do so when things start to hurt. Close inspection revealed my fangs had been accommodating something not unlike trench warfare. Not good. Unperturbed, Dr. Bhuva went to town on the ol’ chompers, and had them back to pearly white status in no time. She is kind, friendly, and as gentle as someone wielding a drill and pokey-thing can be. Thanks to Dr. Bhuva and her aweseom team I am at least 300% more smooch-able. Also, she has a pair of badass sunglasses that she swears are for the bright light, but I’m convinced it’s just to make you feel cool. I might have to gnaw on some concrete for an excuse to go back.

Stuart S. (Source: Zocdoc)


I’ve only had one appointment with Dr. Bhuva so far, but she was incredibly thorough. She did full x-rays of my teeth and explained what the x-rays meant. Her practice is definitely one of the more technologically advanced dental practices I’ve seen- the x-rays came up on a computer screen right next to my chair. It was very cool. She was very friendly and asked me a bunch of questions about myself. She even gave me a little dental kit as a gift for my first visit. I would recommend her.

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


Dr. Bhuva is hands down the best dentist I have ever had. She is very candid yet caring and she does incredible work. She is unlike many in the industry that rush and don’t take the time to explain conditions – she on the other hand is extremely patient. I would recommend Dr. Bhuva without any reservations at all!

Mitchell L. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bhuva is an excellent dentist, and I am glad I found her! I had a bike accident in which I badly chipped two of my front four teeth (#9 and #10). Dr. Bhuva put crowns on both teeth. She takes a lot of pride in her work. She would not cement anything unless it lives up to the highest aesthetic and functional standards. For what its worth, my mother works for a dentist in New York (who had been my dentist my entire life before I moved to the Bay Area this year). He is not one to give compliments, but even he had to admit she did a great job.

Lesly A. from San Leandro, CA (Source: Yelp)


First of, I want to start off by saying this is the best dental office I’ve ever been to. Dr. Bhuva is very gentle, attentive to your needs, very light with her hands, constantly checking in to make sure I was okay, making me feel at ease while working on my teeth. She did fillings and Invisalign and she explained what should be done first and why which was very helpful. She makes sure you’re happy with the results. The staff is friendly and helpful. So, overall she’s the best dentist all around, hands down on her work! I highly recommend her to others. Dr.Bhuva does solid work and truly cares for her patients! Thanks, Dr. Bhuva

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


This review is long overdue! Dr. Bhuva is hands down the best dentist and she truly cares about her patients. Dental work can be intimidating, but Dr. Bhuva always takes the time to answer questions and thoroughly explain any procedures. The front desk staff is great, too. Lisa, Clara and Hannah are always great at helping to schedule appointments and calling to remind you a few days prior. I recently chipped my front tooth on a coffee mug at work. Of course it happened at the end of the workday, and I thought I would have to live with it all weekend until I could schedule an appointment. But Dr. Bhuva and her staff came to my rescue and had me in the chair and fixed within 20 minutes of my call! I couldn’t believe how accommodating they were, and it really says something about their practice. Because the office is located downtown, it makes it really easy to make lunchtime appointments. If you are looking for a dentist in the financial district, this is the place!

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


I had a great experience with Dr Bhuva and her team! I’m a new patient and was greeted warmly at the reception desk with a handshake from Hanna. I had already filled out my new patient forms online, so I didn’t have to wait at all once I arrived. After checking in, I met my hygienist Monica and she too greeted me with a handshake. (Everyone in the office is great and friendly) Monica was very thorough in the cleaning, while still being very gentle, and explained what she was doing next every step of the way. She always made sure I was comfortable. After my cleaning I had an annual exam/consult with Dr Bhuva. She too greeted me with a handshake and I always felt welcomed and cared for. Dr Bhuva didn’t rush through the consult and answered all of my questions. Overall an awesome experience and I’m looking forward to my future visits.

Erin C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Bhuva! I found her through ZocDoc originally and have been seeing her for the past 2 years now. My husband also goes to her and loves her. I’ve had some bad experiences with dentists in the past and when we moved from the south bay I was really sad to leave a great dentist we had found down there. So much so that I was considering making the hour and a half drive just to keep with him. But, now that I found Dr. Bhuva I don’t have to! She’s been great for regular checkups and the real test came today when I had to get 3 fillings done. She was a pro, I was in and out of there quickly and with no pain. The office staff is also wonderful and they always ask to see pics of our daughter. They really take the time to get to know their patients – calling everyone by name. If you need a new dentist, definitely see Dr. Bhuva and her team. She’s in the financial district, but also really close for Soma residents.
