Dr. Nakagawa is the best dentist around the area. I have always had weak teeth and always seem to have a cavity here or there despite flossing everyday and using the latest Sonicare toothbrush. As you can imagine, going to a dentist is not my idea of a good day. My fears of pain and anxiety were assuaged by the relaxing atmosphere and demeanor of Dr. Nakagawa. My husband and I love her! This year we decided to save a little bit of money and chose HMO for our dental insurance. We were saddened to hear that Dr. Nakagawa does not accept this plan. We have gone to another dentist in the area and it was not the same! We are counting down the days till the end of the year when we can switch back to PPO coverage and see Dr. Nakagawa again. She is that much better.

Like many other people I have my own dentist nightmare stories. Not anymore! As a matter of fact, I had to have a very old filling replaced yesterday and I can honestly say I left with a smile. She has never recommended anything that I don't need which two other dentist did in the past. Everyone in the office is friendly, especially Dr. N., and my family goes to see her as well. Each dental chair has a floor to ceiling window so you have a relaxing view. I hope she never retires because I may have to let my teeth rot, yes she is that good.

Dr. Nakagawa replaced old fillings without my consent or knowldege. She just told me I had cavities that needed to be filled. When i got home i noticed that my old fillings were gone. When i confronted her about it she just said its her policy to replace old fillings. Be careful. she's a charmer but not the best dentist. I've had to have the fillings that she refilled replaced 3 times in the past week.

I know this doctor: 8 months

Dr. Nakagawa did a bridge for me that was just outstanding in terms of matching my natural teeth - she gave me a beautiful smile! She's really nice and her office staff is very understanding of the stress of going to the dentist.
