We had an emergency did not have a local dentist, the staff found me a spot immediately and a great dentist.  After that, we see them as often as we can for the best care, best price, efficient, friendly, and most important competent staff.  I recommend them all the time. Best ever!

Possibly the best customer service I’ve experienced with Michael and always above and beyond care and information with Dr.Kari Hong and Dr. Tapp.

Who falls asleep while getting their cavity filled? I did. Thank you Dr. karri Hong for giving this sleep deprived mother a little TLC this afternoon. Much needed!

The other day I was on my way to the dentist for my semi-annual teeth-cleaning carrying along my crown which had sheared off while chewing on something hard. My hope was that it might help in the creation of a new crown. Instead, my wonderful dentist, Cristine Tapp, thought she could cement my crown back, which she did, eliminating the time, expense and discomfort of creating a new crown. My sincere thanks to her and Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry. They are the best! Frances P.

The office is well organized, no waiting time. Extremely clean and with complete equipment for all need, make the visit very easy, pleasant and comfortable. Especially Doctor Kary Ann is very gentle on any treatment making it painless. Everything works very efficiently from the appointment, reminders, visit and support for payment with insurance. Extremely professional and pleasant.

I love Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry. I had been told by my previous dentist that I had cavities that needed to be filled but I hadn’t gotten them filled. My family switched dentists and when I mentioned this to Dr Hong she said that I had not cavities and didn’t need any fillings. I feel like I can totally trust Dr Hong and I love her whole practice!

First time patient at Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry and I had a lovely experience. Every person that works here is so nice and attentive. I ended up having the most detailed teeth cleaning in my entire life. My hygienist, Kristi V. took her time to give me a complete and thorough cleaning. My teeth were an entire shade whiter after my cleaning. Thank you, Kristi!!! This was my first time at a doctors office where I didn’t feel rushed so they could get to the next patient. That’s rare and really means a lot. Michael, the office manager is so kind and patient answering all of my questions on the phone and in person. And lastly, Dr. Hong took her time to cover all of my concerns. Best dentist office I’ve ever been to.

My whole family have been long-time patients of Dr. Hong; her office is clean, her staff is friendly and professional, and we are more than happy with the great care we all receive there. From cleanings and fillings to teeth whitening, Dr. Hong’s expertise is superb and we highly recommend her.

Who thought I would love going to the dentist?  I enjoy every time I see Dr. Tapp and Dr. Hong and team.  Not only are they professional and great at their job, but they are kind and caring, which makes the visit enjoyable.  And then there’s Michael!  He really knows his stuff.  He knows my insurance more than myself and is always a joy to work with 🙂

Lyndsay W. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this Dentist office years now and I’m still impressed with the staff and also the care I have received. I had an implant put in over a year ago, and long story short it failed during the last step and had to be replaced. The second time around it was perfect. With the staff knowing that I have fears about needles and my strong gag reflex they are very patient with me. Thank you Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry.

Bob B. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family had trusted our dental health to Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry for decades. Their staff are friendly and professional. They provide a level of care that makes you feel like you are dealing with friends who really care about your welfare. I have had emergencies and routine care and would not go anywhere else. I can recommend them without reservation

Daniel J. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)


After being oversea in Italy with no dental coverage for three years, I came home and called to set up seeing Dr. Tapp again. Before I could get in for my regular check up, while I was on leave visiting family in New Mexico I broke a tooth. I called The Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry Office and explained my situation, they found me appointment for a quick temp repair and then scheduled to complete work in a short time afterward. The modern equipment is fantastic. No more gummy (gag me) mold for crowns, The new tooth mapping device imaged and ordered my crown which was install a hour later. If you want to be cared for as a family member this is the place to visit. Fantastic service, professional staff. I will bring my grand children here.

Linda C. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at the Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry  for over 35 years.  The friendly service that I receive from Michael and Carol is unmatched.  The office and equipment are very clean. Dr. Tapp  has been very GENTLE which is very important to me!  I recommend that you give them a try.  You won’t be disappointed.

Even though I have lived in Los Angeles for several years now, I recently made a special trip out for a ZOOM teeth whitening appointment. I first got ZOOM whitening at TO Family Dentistry back in 2011 and I was so pleased with the results, and am very pleased again. The staff is helpful and friendly and even let me know about a rebate I could apply for!

Reneę D. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Most of my experiences with dentists have been unpleasant till I’ve come here. The staff is very friendly nice and never makes you feel uncomfortable or self conscious. Coming in I have had neglected my teeth and they’ve turned them bright white getting out almost years worth of damage, also giving me tools to reverse damage. Not only that but overall there’s a television you can watch while getting your teeth done making sure your experience is comfy. the staff is actually invested in their job making it overall very professional and personable. They know what they’re doing and they do it thorough and well.

Revati B. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Tapp and Dr Hong are amazing. They are so gentle, friendly and happy to answer all my questions. I am so happy that we found them. My husband and I, both love going to them. Michael at the reception is really great too. We recommend them to all our friends.

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


Dr. Hong and Dr. Tapp are great dentists.  They staff at the office are always friendly and the cleaning is always done precisely.  Dr. Tapp even helped diagnose my tongue disorder.  I would highly recommend their office and them as dentists.

Kathleen C. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Thousand Oaks Dentistry for years and have seen both Dr Keri Hong and Dr Christine Tapp.  The dentists as well as the hygienists and office staff are very kind and professional.   I appreciate that they don’t recommend dental work that isn’t necessary.

My whole family have been long-time patients of Dr. Hong; her office is clean, her staff is friendly and professional, and we are more than happy with the great care we all receive there. From cleanings and fillings to teeth whitening, Dr. Hong’s expertise is superb and we highly recommend her.

This is the only dentist that made a filling feel good!!! OK, no dentist is that good, but I’ve been a patient for more than 35 years, first with Dr Jerry, then his daughter, Dr Kari. They are the best!!

Susan C. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to TO Family Dentistry for a couple of years now. After 30 years at another dentist, Dr Tapp and her technicians have been repairing problems from the past and moving forward with truly excellent care of my teeth. I recently visited her during the COVID crisis. As always, I found their modern office to be spotless and sanitary. I felt completely comfortable being treated by her during this trying time. Dr. Hong has treated my son for about ten years. He got over his anxiety of dentists here. I also would like to add that Michael at the receptionist desk is extremely helpful and accommodating.

My whole family goes to Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry. The whole staff there is nice and friendly. Plus they do very good dental work too!

My crown popped off and I needed to have it replaced. Being new to the area, we don’t have a dentist. I called four offices near my home including, Dr. Hong’s office. First, Michael, the gentleman who answered the phone, was exceptional and the reason I set my appointment with Dr. Hong. He was organized and polite which sadly is not the norm. Second, when I arrived, I was taken straight back, no wait time. Third, the assistant, was excellent. She knew exactly what she was doing. Fourth, Dr. Hong was meticulous and patient. The crown didn’t just pop back in. She took her time and was willing to work with it until it felt right in my mouth. Finally, back to Michael, when I checked out he’d already handled all the insurance so it took just a few minutes. Will definitely be coming back to Dr. Hong’s and bringing the family. Update: My husband, son, and self have all been back for checkups and cleanings. My son has had some additional work done. If anything the care and service we’ve received is better than my first visit detailed above. So happy we found this dentist.

Everyone TO Family Dentistry is amazing! I always have a great experience whenever I go. Everyone should go see Dr. Kari!

Kate L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am super-sensitive when it comes to dental work! I am so glad to have found Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry – I truly appreciate the way Dr. Hong and Dr. Tapp accept my high level of dental stress and work with me to alleviate it. Everyone is their office is kind and caring, especially Michael who runs the front office. He always has a smile and a kind word. Furthermore, he is very knowledgeable about insurance and that is a huge help. If you’re looking for a dental team that understands anxious patients, is friendly, and does great work, you’ve found them!

Cindy L. from Newbury Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Moved to Thousand Oaks three years ago and needed new dentist. Dr. Hong and staff came highly recommended and did not disappoint. They are caring and efficient. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for competent dentistry services as well as convenient hours and location.

Issy I. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone is fantastic at this office! Michael is so friendly and always goes out if his way to help with appointments and even bill breakdown if I have questions. And Dr. Tapp is so incredibly knowledgeable and empathic . I’ve been to other dentists, as I’ve had lots of dental work done in the past, but Dr. Tapp is hands down the best.

Paula L. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry by doing a search of “best dentist near me” and they did not disappoint! Dr Tapp is very thorough & takes the time to explain & answer questions. The entire staff is very good & patient with little kids, my son being 3 at his first visit, and thoroughly enjoying it! The dental hygienists are great & fast! Michael at the front desk is very helpful, especially with insurance questions and billing – I’ve never had any issues with scheduling. I couldn’t recommend them more!

Steve R. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


We started using Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry a year ago (Jan 2019), based on a friend’s recommendation, and we have been very happy with it. The dentists are knowledgeable, skilled and friendly. The office is clean, comfortable, and easily accessible (& parking is free). The staff are very professional… especially MICHAEL the receptionist and scheduler (probably handles a variety of office tasks). Michael is exceptionally friendly, professional, helpful and efficient, something we really appreciate as we have been to other great dentists whose front office staff were NOT so agreeable which made us dread going to the dentist more than having our teeth worked on!

Teri A. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hong, Dr. Tapp and the entire staff is so attentive and personable each and every time I go in for a visit. Highly professional and very informative, I so appreciate how well they take care of me and truly listen to any oral issues I have.

Amilia N. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry is great. I had recently moved to the area and had a filling that fell out one night. After reading reviews, I called them first thing the next morning. They were really accommodating and were able to fit me in that morning since it was bothering me. Everything was fixed and I was out of the office by noon. The staff is really friendly and knowledgeable. After having my filling replaced, I scheduled a cleaning. Every time I’ve been in, they’ve been so courteous and prompt.

R. B. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Hong and Dr Tapp are very professional and precise. I have been going to them for the past 5 yrs and have been very happy with their service and treatments. My wife is also very happy with them. I recommend them to everyone.

Dante D. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Hong for about 2 years now. I can’t recommend this dentistry enough! All of the employees are very kind. They know exactly what they are doing and are extremely thorough every time I go in. The front office is always filled with a joyous Michael. He is patient and willing to work out any problems that might come up. Plus, he always has a smile on his face! Fantastic place!

Pam K. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


We moved to Thousand Oaks three years ago and fortunately found Thousand Oaks Family Dentistry. No need to look further. Their knowledge and efficiency is a breath of fresh air. I’ve never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen and they are very accommodating.
