Yelp review 04/23/2015 
Great dentist and very caring staff! Was having issues with my insurance company and Lucy at the front desk went above and beyond to help me out!!! They always greet you with a smile here and make going to the dentist a pleasure!
Dr. Kanda is extremely friendly but also extremely knowledgeable. They use the latest equipment and technology here.  I actually drive out of my way to come here because it's worth the extra time!!  
Cant recommend them enough !
Dr. Kanda and his staff are truly impeccable! We relocated to the area recently and there is always concern when trying to find a new dentist you can trust. We were referred to Dr. Kanda and have been extremely happy with his gentle techniques and diagnostic expertise. He truly has your health and wellbeing in mind. The friendly and efficient staff make every visit a pleasure. We are grateful to have found a place we feel safe and cared for.

Jim, I always feel like I’m in great hands with you and Espy. Also, Becky is top notch. Extremely knowledgeable, helpful, and friendly. Erika was very customer oriented, friendly, and efficient in setting my future appointments. I’m not sure if she is a permanent or temporary addition to your front office, but her presence there is a net positive. In summary, Team Kanda’ is outstanding

Everyone was so nice and the environment was clean and comfortable. Dr. Kanda explained everything clearly and with patience. Overall a wonderful experience.

It is hard to rate a dentist appointment as excellent, as it usually involves pain and discomfort, maybe some terror. “Very good is a compliment and as high as I can go. Dr.Kanda’s staff is very knowledgeable and very friendly, and made things as comfortable as they could for me during my teeth bleaching. It’s not a lot of fun, but the results were good!


Everyone is amazing at Dr. Kanda's office! He always follows up with a phone call after every visit. The office is friendly, clean, and welcoming

Dr. Kanda is the best dentist we have ever been to. The staff is also very nice.

Parker R.

Everyone is very nice and the only way we could feel more comfortable is if you provided services in our home. EVERYONE is always very helpful. We really appreciate Dr. Kanda personally calling to see how we are doing after any procedure.

My parents were referred to Dr.Kanda by some friends and the three of us decided to schedule appointments with him due to his high praise. The entire staff is just a joy to be around. It's never a dull moment in the waiting room! The ladies at the front desk would chat with me, make conversation, and we all shared laughs! Definitely made me feel welcome while I waited for my appointment. Even during my appointment the hygienist and x-ray technician were pleasant to be around, they would talk to me step-by-step about what they were doing and made me feel comfortable about each procedure.When it's your first time going in to Dr. Kanda's office they make sure they understand how your teeth are built by taking photos as well as x-rays.When Dr. Kanda came in he was extremely kind and shook my hand. He looked at the x-rays and photos discussing with me what he see's, what his concerns are, and even a before and after photo of my teeth once it was cleaned (amazing the difference!). His practice is definitely in touch with the latest dental equipment using a special detector that can identify if a tooth has a cavity or not. Since I had not been to the dentist in a long time I got my first set of cavities (3) and had to come for two additional visits to get them taken care of.I was a bit nervous because they were my first and I was not familiar with the procedure. When I went for my fillings, Dr. Kanda was reassuring, extremely gentle, and eased my nerves. The teeth look completely normal, it's as if a cavity never existed.What amazed me most was that during the evening the same day after both procedures he called me to make sure I was doing okay! I was shocked! I didn't expect such kindness and reaching the extra mile just to make sure my teeth were doing well. That's not only a professional, that's a man that really cares about his patient's well-being.I saw the one bad review and I was surprised at the impression described. I haven't been to the dentist in many many years. If Dr. Kanda was just trying to find something wrong, he could have said a lot more to me and he knew my dental history.

Best. Dentist. EVER! Great office staff too. I know them all by name. Dr. Kanda texts you to check in, calls, everything. Even when I just get a minor filling, he checks in. I've been going to him for about 10 years and refer all my friends. They all love him. My mouth is in great shape thanks to him. I have perfect dental work that lasts. Also, he won't give you dental work unless you need it. There have been many years where he gave me a clear check up and didn't make appointments for procedures I didn't need. Dentists I had before seemed to just make up problems for me. He only addresses what you need and is never an alarmist. Other dentists gave me terrible anxiety, not Dr. Kanda. He is a wonderful, skilled, and intelligent dentist. He's superb!


Dr. James Kanda is an exceptional dentist who truly cares about his patients. His practice is nothing short of the best dental office I have ever been to.My wife has had a large number of dental issues over the past several years. As a result she has developed severe anxiety when it comes to any sort of dental work. This anxiety was exacerbated by trips to several dental offices where we were not treated well.We were extremely fortunate to find Dr. Kanda's office. During our first visit he took the time to listen to all of our concerns and really got to know us. He has a very amiable personality and a comforting voice that instantly puts you at ease. He never acted rushed, never talked down to us or dismissed our concerns, and always explained everything he was doing so we knew why he was doing it. Most important of all, he understood my wife's extreme anxiety and took it seriously, doing everything he could to make sure she felt comfortable on every visit. He would even personally call her the evening after a procedure to make sure she was doing ok.We visited Dr. Kanda's office at least a dozen times in a year. His office is clean, modern, and never crowded. Sometimes we had to try to schedule an appointment at the last minute, but he always managed to squeeze us in no matter how busy he was. His staff is extremely friendly and helpful, especially Lucy, who became our personal angel for helping us with insurance, scheduling, emails, and the like. Dr. Kanda's wife, who also works at the office, was always extremely friendly and comforting. She would personally do my wife's cleanings to help ease her anxiety, and it really helped a lot.Dr. Kanda and his staff regularly went above and beyond what I would expect from a dental office. I truly know that they cared about me and my wife and wanted the best for us.I would definitely recommend Dr. Kanda's office to anyone who wants a positive dental experience. His practice is, without a doubt, the epitome of good dentistry.

Very comfortable environment and friendly staff, sensitive to my schedule for appointment scheduling. Thanks!

My Hygienist is a pleasure. She is always so upbeat yet professional. No pain and a thorough job. Your office staff is friendly and efficient, reminding me of my upcoming appointments and making it easy to schedule and change. They are helpful in enabling changes to be made to my personal information and for making financial arrangements as needed. Including a dentist I know and trust it's always nice to visit the dentist - and not everybody can say that!

Barbara O.

Becky is so friendly and organized - I love seeing her smiling face when I arrive in the office. She is always able to answer any questions I may have and is a genius with scheduling. Edith is the best dental hygienist I have ever had the pleasure of meeting. She is so skilled and thorough, and has such a light hand that she never inflicts pain - a true rarity! Dr. Kanda does great work that really lasts and looks great. He is a superstar dentist!
