Dr. Shimizu is excellent! I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs braces. Dr. Shimizu believes in giving back to the community and he is part of the Smile for a Lifetime program. My son was very blessed to be a recipient of this program. My son had a wonderful experience with Dr. Shimizu and his staff. Everyone there is very kind and professional. My son wore braces for 16 months and just got his braces taken off recently. Now, my son has more self-confidence and can’t stop smiling! We are going to miss going to the appointments because we never leave empty handed. Dr. Shimizu’s office always has something to give to their patients. For Mother’s Day, all the moms received a flower. For Thanksgiving, they gave out Thank You cards. Recently, they gave out free tote bags. They also give out free cookies! Thank you Dr. Shimizu!

This place is GREAT. I’ve experienced orthodontics in Japan and India. Both were the most renowned (& super expensive) orthodontist in each country, but my teeth continued to move after the treatment. (my upper and lower teeth contacted in inappropriate way after the treatments, but they said it’s normal and finished it) You don’t have to worry anything like that in the treatment of Dr. Shimizu. He and his staff’s frank & professional service will never disappoint you. Their treatment is PERFECT. You should think yourself very fortunate if you’re living in South Bay Area. You can just drive a few miles and meet the best orthodontist in the world.

Both of my children have been treated by Dr. Shimizu. I appreciate the openness of the office and the fact that I can go back and sit with my child(ren) during the appointment. I feel like I really had a chance to get to know the entire office team. From the moment that you walk in the door, Dr. Shimizu’s office feels different from other offices. It feels very comfortable and welcoming. While the coffee bar and warm cookies are a definite bonus, the bottom line is that Dr. Shimizu is an excellent orthodontist.

This is the first time I’m recommending an orthodontics establishment online… But Shimizu Orthodontics is so AMAZING that I would gladly SING their praises from the highest rooftop!! Dr. Shimizu and his dedicated team work MIRACLES trust me!! They do an OUTSTANDING job – which everyone can/will see by their miraculous results. The team must’ve been hand-selected and composed of some of the finest human beings on earth. They SINCERELY care for their patients’ well-being, and for their patient’s families. Such a wonderful team that works together like a very-well oiled-machine geared towards creating happiness to anyone that is fortunate enough to be in their presence. Me and my wife have been here many-a-times, for our son, they took care of him like he was their own child, they took care of us – like we’re part of their family (which I realize now – we are)… This place is full of wonderful souls, and on each visit we’ve got to experiences each and everyone’s kindness. I love their honesty, their sincerity and their warm/kind personalities – Dr. Shimizu’s aura reflects across the entire office which is always super-clean, very well furnished and super inviting (just like the staff). I have felt nothing but ‘LOVE’ and true INSPIRATION from them each visit – Just by seeing how well they treat everyone (and each other) – I’ve always left truly inspired with a feeling of “how wonderful this world is!”. It’s rare to find so many beautiful human beings and kind souls under one roof – who sincerely care and do a FANTABULOUS job: Here is a wonderful place that does JUST THAT! Big shout of respect out to the staff: Kelly, Gabrielle, Sarah, Daisy, Charlotte, Pam, Jaime, Rachel, Iesha, Susi and of course the main man himself – Dr. Shimizu If the ratings allowed it, I would give Shimizu Orthodontics 100 stars!! – Highly recommended by me and my family… They’re AWESOME!! You’ll see why!

Dr. Shimizu is awesome! He is a really well-respected orthodontist and provides great results and experiences for his patients. Whether you are an adult patient or the parent of a child seeking orthodontics, you would be wise to select his office for either braces or Invisalign. He is that rare doctor who always has time for his patients, enough time for each as an individual. It’s obvious that he is simply a really good person. I can’t imagine why anybody would go anywhere else.

★★★★★

I went to Dr. Shimizu on a recommendation from my dentist. I had postponed getting my teeth straightened since my teens for over 20 years, and suffered from poor gum health due to overcrowding. Other orthodontists recommended extraction of 4 teeth and expensive re-doing of an existing bridge. Dr. Shimizu advised that he would be able to achieve the same end results with only 1 tooth extraction, and preserving the existing bridge. After nearly 2 years of successful Invisalign treatment, I am very happy to say that he achieved everything that was promised. Family, friends, and my dentist are all amazed at the transformation. He is someone who is extremely good at what he does, and takes pride in his work. The staff is very knowledgeable, and courteous. Highly recommended, worth every penny!

★★★★★

I only reserve five stars for the very best, consistent experience. Dr. Shimizu and his staff are very professional. He clearly puts effort into making his practice effective and patient-friendly. I was in one morning very early, and I could overhear some of his morning staff meeting. People were LAUGHING. What staff is laughing at 0730? These were happy people, and it showed in their work. Every step of the way, Dr. Shimizu told me exactly what was going on, in words I could understand, without being condescending. I recommend Dr. Shimizu’s practice.

★★★★★

Dr. Shimizu is AMAZING! Not only is his office location super convenient, he offers the latest technology. But most importantly, he obviously LOVES what he does and it shows! You will receive the highest level of patient care at every step of your treatment, and Dr. Shimizu is a MASTER with Invisalign. You will be so happy you chose Dr. Shimizu if you’re in the Bay Area- I HIGHLY recommend him!

Dr Shimizu and his staff makes the braces a very pleasant experience. My kid looked forward to his appointments. He did a great job with my kid in straightening his teeth. He was also always available on calls in the first couple of weeks which is the hardest when my kid started his brace to answer any questions or give suggestions on how to manage the pain.

Sunny C. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)

Dr Shimizu is an excellent orthodontist. Very calm, competent and professional. His office, the staff are all top notch. We visited a few orthodontists before making our selection — We were very impressed with the doctor and his team, and were pleasantly surprised when the price quote came in lower than the others. We have been very pleased with the high level of care provided. A wonderful office to work with, always responsive, easy to get in for an appointment in case of emergency. He does not nickel and dime you – they charge you a flat rate upfront, but offer the cadillac of care for what they charge. Some orthos charge extra for xrays (or send you to a third party where you have to pay extra). Here we paid a flat, pre arranged amount up front, and a year later (endless appointments later) we have not had to pay a dime more for anything. What we love: – Dr Shimizu and his staff are experienced, friendly, calm and very professional. Everything seems very calm and organized. – They charges were fair, and in line with other quotes we received – you never feel nickel and dimed – in fact the price seems fair for all the time they give you. – Doctor is very experienced and competent. He knows his stuff! His staff is also excellent. Friendly, caring and good at their work – They never push extra treatment or services – With the ortho treatment, we find ourselves here at least once a month — and love how clean, calm and modern the office is. They always have fresh coffee, tea. cocoa and warm cookies (ironic for a dentist!). These little touches make the kids excited about coming in – and are a convenient and thoughtful touch for parents on the go. Lots of little touches make this a special place. We have been very pleased with our experience here. I wish all doctors were as pleasant and wise as Dr Shimizu. Highly recommend.

My son had his braces put on here and is now going through the motions of his appointments and adjustments and such. The initial consultation was great. I met with Jamie and she was professional and knowledgeable. She explained all options and what treatment would be best for my son. She was very helpful. Dr. Shimizu is also great and a pleasure to deal with. He is great with the kids and tells them exactly what he is going to do. Front desk staff is also friendly. The whole staff is really great and accomodating when it comes to booking appointments. Forrunately, I have dual insurance with the hubs so the fee was less. A big plus is they have a fully stocked coffee bar! They have a keurig with an array of coffee, chai, teas…hot water for hot chocolate and freshly baked cookies for the kids after their appointment. I can’t help but to indulge in a coffee or chai when I take my son to his appontments. I highly recommend this place to anyone!

Beth C. from Santa Clara, CA (Source: Yelp)

We interviewed three different orthodontists for my daughter and felt the most comfortable trusting her treatment with Dr. Shimizu. His office is really nice and actually fun to go to. All the employees are extremely cheerful and professional. They even serve warm cookies. The whole team does a great job of catering to the kids and making them feel comfortable. Also after talking to all three orthodontists, I had the very highest level of confidence in Dr. Shimizu’s experience and expertise. We’ve only been going there for about 6 months but so far it’s been a pleasure!

It was the first time we visited Dr. Shimizu.  He gave me the impression as a very competent, professional and truth worthy doctor.  My daughter really likes him as well.  I got all the information I needed by the end of the visit.  I’m impressed with his straight forward, honest and efficient style.  He told me my daughter doesn’t need any orthodontic work at this point. I will definitely go back to him in the future.  Thank you, Dr. Shimizu!!

Looking for a great orthodontist? Well look no further, Dr.Shimizu is best. Our son had his braces on and off in 9 months! He had a great experience and was so happy to have his braces off before starting high school. Our daughter is now in her second phase of braces. She started there when she was 9 and had her braces on for 12 mos. Even though she was a little scared at first all the assistants made her feel so special and Dr. Shimizu was so gentle with her,she would get excited to go to the office. Her treatment went so great the first time that when it came time for her second phase she wasn’t worried at all. Dr. Shimizu and his staff are amazing! I have referred several of my friends and family and they all love him too.This office is top notch and we are glad to have found Dr. Shimizu. Oh and they have a great little coffee bar for the parents and cookies too!

Eric K. from San Ramon, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I haven’t come to the conclusion if I’m going to need orthodontic work… but it’s not due to the visit, the information, or the exam. I went to Dr. Shimizu on recommendation from my dentist, to figure out if the work that I had done previously with another orthodontist was something that could/should be finished. the office was clean and neat. The staff prompt and friendly. The examination that I had was throrough, transparent, and informative. I am fully in possession of everything that I need to make a decision, and what I can expect of the financial, treatment, and ongoing maintenance commitments are. If I do decide to get work done… it’ll be with Dr. Shimizu. 5 stars just seems a little excessive in that I haven’t had the full experience.

★★★★★

My son had his first orthodontic visit in this practice and I was very impressed with the staff, the doctor and the cleanliness of the office.  Upon our entry we were greeted happily and felt welcomed into the office.  Jaime the treatment coordinator was amazing. She carefully explained a treatment plan for my son. I was intrigued by how an orthodontic office worked and she happily gave me a tour of the office.  The clinical staff were very friendly and most importantly my son felt very comfortable in the environment.  I was especially impressed that Dr. Shimizu took time to get to know my son. He talked to him about  his grade and subjects he is learning in school.  My son openly talked to him about his interests and that made an impression on me.  I am excited to start treatment in this practice and would recommend this office to any of my friends.

All Around Great Office, Staff and Orthodontist He really knows his stuff. He is a kind ortho. and good with kids. His office is a joy to visit for parents and kids and there is always a contest or something fun going on. Do Not–I repeat–Do Not try to go to a place that you heard was “cheaper” because you will pay in the end when you are unhappy with the results or the doctor and, even worse, getting braces put on a second time. Seriously, think about all the braces horror stories you’ve heard in your lifetime. Trust me. Go Here.

Dr. Shimizu is one of the most brilliant orthodontists in the country! I am a colleague of his and am regularly impressed by his clinical expertise when discussing complex orthodontic case situations. He chooses solutions for his patients that keep their best interests in mind. He cares about their experience and their outcomes. Your smile is in great hands here!

★★★★★

Dr Shimizu is the absolute best! We have been extremely happy with his and his staff’s services for my 3 children and myself, but the most amazing part of all is the work that he did on my nephew who arrived from France 2 years ago with severe jaw and bite problems. After over a year of treatment with Dr. Shimizu, my nephew has now returned to France and the local dentists over there are totally blown away by the results. Thanks Dr. Shimizu for all your help and patience, and we’ll see you again soon with additional family members and friends!

Superior orthodontist I have had the pleasure of working with Dr. Shimizu over the past six years. He is an extremely dedicated doctor who is an innovator in the field of orthodontics. As a fellow orthodontist I frequently get advice on difficult cases from Dr. Shimizu. I highly recommend any prospective patients to get an evaluation at Shimizu Orthodontics.

I first saw Dr. Shimizu back in 1993 for my first round of braces in an attempt to correct the “Madonna-sized” gap between my front teeth. Five some odd years later I emerged a beautiful butterfly, with a totally awesome mouth full of perfectly straight teeth. Six years later I returned to Dr. Shimizu’s office to have a permanent retainer fixed, he did so promptly and efficiently. Now another six years later I returned for the same broken retainer ( likely a result of my hygienists scraping too hard on the cement holding it on!! )… AGAIN today, he fixed it with no questions asked. The things I love about this office: -Super cool, updated office, full of fancy toys, and plasma screens that enchant you while you wait. -A receptionist that really likes her job, and knows her stuff.. she’s not just an appointment setter, which I love. -I practically feel like family when I’m in there, and I LOVE the Dr. Shimizu remembers from me as a kid. -The technicians are all super up-beat, and seem like they really love what they do. -Dr. Shimizu’s knowledge, and experience. The man is a genius, and he really cares about his patients. -Lastly, There are cookies for you when you leave!!!! LOVE THAT! Any child coming to this office is going to have a hay-day with the cookies, gum, and pencils coming home with them. Any parents (or adult) coming to this office will have the chance to enjoy a cup of coffee or tea while they wait…. The hospitality is better than most hotels!!! Overall, if you are looking for an orthodontist for yourself, or your child, look no further! This is the only office I’ll ever come to for Ortho work. Hopefully one day when I have kids, Dr. Shimizu will still be practicing, and knowing my husband’s teeth, not to mention my own, we’ll be taking our kids over the hill to see Dr. Shimizu!

Dr. Kenneth Shimizu and his team were excellent! From start to finish, we had an exceptional experience. Dr. Shimizu is knowledgeable, takes the time to explain everything in detail, and never rushes an appointment. His team is lovely, and friendly, and we couldn’t be happier with the results of the orthodontic work.

★★★★★

Dr. Shimizu is the best orthodontist in his field. He is professional, honest, and really knows what he’s doing. My daughter’s teeth were really in need of braces. Her teeth were growing on top of each other causing pain in her jaw. We came to him when my daughter was just 9 years old, when I saw signs that she needed braces. He checked her teeth out and advised us to come back when she’s 12 because he didn’t want me to waste money and have my daughter go through treatment twice since her teeth would likely need to be fixed again later in her teenage years. I just felt like he really cared about my daughter. I consulted with another ortho just to get a 2nd opinion and he was in a hurry to put braces on my daughter. I realized Dr. Shimizu was the one for us and now after 18 months, my daughter has the most perfect smile. He has a beautiful office, wonderful, friendly, and professional staff. I will not recommend any other orthodontist, but Dr. Shimizu. He is just the best.

Dr Ken Shimizu and his entire team are the BEST! They will amaze you every step of the way, from start to finish and will exceed your expectations everytime! They truly set the bar for the utmost best orthodontic experience from your initial phone call til your treatment is completed. My family have been patients over the last 12+years (Dr Shimizu provided us three amazing smiles) I normally do not YELP, but feel this review is much overdue and truly earned. I would rate Dr Shimizu office **********10 stars!!!

Kasia G. from Carmel, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Shimizu is the best orthodontist! Along with his team of wonderful assistants my teeth 12 YEARS later are still perfect! As a 9 year old back in 2002 I was not thinking of braces at all. But I had no choice as my parents dragged me to get them put on. I had pretty messed up teeth because my baby teeth never voluntarily fell out; I had to get one surgically removed & as a result I had crowding and then crooked teeth. I had braces for 9 months to help with the overcrowding & then in 9th grade I would get braces again. In 9th grade as a freshman in high school I was like oh goodness no, so embarrassing! But I’d rather get it over with as soon as possible. 9 months later I had perfect beautiful teeth! Only 18 months total of braces & my teeth are exactly the way I want them to be! I see so many people get braces and then NOT wear their retainers because they are “not cool” or they are “ugly & inconvenient”. But honestly, in today’s society, having straight white teeth is important when making friends, getting a job, & looking presentable. Having braces is not too fun but at a young age I’d recommend it. Braces are a very good investment; but only if you choose to wear that $300 retainer EVERYDAY! I’m glad I chose (glad my parents chose) Dr. Shimizu as my orthodontist.

This office is the Ritz Carlton of Orthodontics. Make your appointment today so you can have your dream smile… you will not be let down!

This has been one of the best experiences I have ever received. Doc Shimizu has so much in-depth knowledge and openly shares it in a very objective way. I came in with a broken retainer. The doctor gave me all of the available options with the pros and cons with each and made his professional recommendation. I walked away with full knowledge of how to maintain a healthy smile. On top of the very informative visit the staff was amazingly friendly. I cannot say enough good things about dr. Shimizu his office and staff. I highly recommend this team and hope to send more people here to enjoy the same great experience that I received.

★★★★★

My experience with Dr. Shimizu was AMAZING — I would give six stars if I could. I have TMJ, which led to my jaw being offset and my bite being messed up as a result. My situation was in the realm of needing surgery, but I was able to avoid the surgery because of MEAW wires, a newer technology that helps guide teeth into the correct position. I am so incredibly thankful to Dr. Shimizu (and his entire office, honestly) for making the process of MEAW wires the most wonderful experience it could have been. His office is really the most welcoming office I’ve ever been in. Everyone is so unbelievably friendly and sweet, and the general atmosphere is so much more lively than any other orthodontist I’ve been to. All in all, Dr. Shimizu’s office somehow makes orthodontist appointments not seem like a chore. My appointments are relaxed and efficient, and I leave with a cookie from the waiting area.

My eight-year old son had a substantial gap in his teeth. Dr. Shimizu suggested a different theory than the first consultation we got and we decided to trust our instincts and to go with Dr. Shimizu’s approach. It was the right decision! After having the Bluegrass appliance for six months, the teeth were 100% straight and remained straight at 4-months follow up. No braces, no pain! We are glad we chose Dr. Shimizu.

Dr. Shimizu is awesome! He is a really well-respected orthodontist and provides great results and experiences for his patients. He actually teaches residents at UOP how to do orthodontics.  He is the kind of doctor who always has plenty of time for every patient.  You neverr feel rushed.  Whether you are an adult patient or the parent of a child seeking orthodontics, you would be wise to select his office for either braces or Invisalign. His office is really modern and high-tech.  It’s obvious that he is simply a really good person. I can’t imagine why anybody would go anywhere else.

I want to highly recommend Shimizu Orthodontics. My child is on the Autism Spectrum and is particularly sensitive about someone working in his mouth. We actually had to search hard to find an orthodontist and staff who understood and who could be sensitive, kind, and caring. Dr Shimizu not only did a more conservative approach (which works far better for my son) but also brings decades of experience to your child’s issues. He spent an hour explaining what was going on. He showed us visually and patiently answered all my questions. Understood how to approach someone on the Autism Spectrum. My son went from being terrified in general to looking forward to seeing Dr Shimizu, a major win for our family. The staff are also understanding and hospitable. Are you looking for an A+ experience? Look no further. Thank you, Shimizu Orthodontics. You can’t know what a relief it is to have found you.

I cannot say how happy I am after visiting Dr. Shimizu last Friday. For the first time I felt the Dr. was telling me the truth and not trying to dip his hand into my Bank Acct! (He actually said…if you have nothing better to do, than I will take your money) his like Yoda!!!! So sweet, humble and knowledgeable!!! So I went in for an Invisalign consult – a sweet lady takes some pics of my teeth with a digital camera, asks me some questions, and then calls in the Doc. The Doc reviewed everything and told me….”are you sure you really want to go through this again. Its not necessary you can just go the following , etc…..” All I ended up needing was a retainer and I was happy the Doc gave me a “clear pic,” rather than trying to tell me he’ll do some magic and correct my lil problems. THANKS Doc your awesome!!! I wish you had a twin who was a general dentist, so I wouldn’t have to go look for one.

Dr. Shimizu is the best orthodontist around and as an added bonus he’s a great guy and has a wonderful staff. I’ve worked closely with General Dentists for the last 30+ years in Santa Clara County and every general dentist I know refers their patients and families to Dr. Shimizu for their orthodontic needs.There is no secret why. He simply is the best. That is why I take my family to him and refer all my friends or anyone that needs ortho to Dr. Shimizu. Many patients are discouraged and giving up on their ortho care because it wasn’t done right. We have referred very challenging cases to him and he always has the answer on how to correct it. We refer young children, sometime before the age of 7, if they have malocclusion. In my experience, It’s typically someone who got a great “deal” on their ortho treatment that ends up with problems, which leads to more expense, as it often ends up causing complications and more time in braces. When it comes to orthodontics, you don’t want to be a coupon shopper, you can trust in Dr. Shimizu that you’ll have it done right the first time. My nephew was a preteen when he went for his evaluation to start his phase II treatment (we had done interceptive ortho (addressing malocclusion as soon as it’s detected is recommended) and before the appointment he was being quite difficult, he didn’t want braces anymore and by the end of the appointment he had a completely turned around his attitude and was disappointed he wasn’t leaving with his bands on that day! Scheduling was easy, it wasn’t long before we were back and able to get started. Ortho treatment requires many visits at regular intervals- but you don’t mind going back because the atmosphere of the office is fun and engaging Thanks to Dr. Shimizu and his wonderful team -both front and back office staff- for a beautiful smile with perfect occlusion!

The office of Shimizu Orthodontics is of extremely high, top notch quality work and compassion! You feel excited to go to your appointment because of the care you receive.

Almost certain you will choose this orthodontist and his staff for your care!
