Just wanted to write a quick review. I just wanted to say thanks for helping me with fixing my broken tooth. I though for sure it was going to be lost. Dr. Sako somehow fixed it and now I'm able to chew on it again. He told me to stop chewing ice but I'll try. Thanks

Before seeing Dr. Sako, I hadn't been to a dentist for over 14 years. I always feared the dentist since I was young. But because of a toothache, I had to. After getting my teeth checked it wasn't as bad as I thought. I did need some work but the fear factor was eliminated because he was so detailed in his work and explained everything well. I must agree with the previous reviewer that his prices are a little higher but it's worth it. I would gladly pay a bit more and be happy. His office is very clean and high tech. The wait isn't bad and the staff seemed nice. I told my Dad about Dr. Sako and now he goes there too.

I have to say that I'm a chicken when it comes to the dentist. It's up there with getting your hair colored. But seeing Dr. Sako makes it so much easier. His shots don't hurt and he's super calm and patient with me. I've been to a lot of dentists and he is definitely up there. His office is really clean and pretty techy with small cameras any stuff. Sometimes I do have to wait a bit during their busy times. Overall he's the best. Thank you so much

I was told I needed a deep cleaning that was not covered by my insurance and that would cost close to $600 dollars. I was also told that I had 5 "soon to be cavities" that needed to be taken care of. Each cavity would cost $15-25 dollars, however, they added a $45 desensitizing charge to each cavity that my insurance does not cover and is not required. They do not explain these charges to you and have a take it or leave attitude. I explained to the dentist I just wanted a normal cleaning and not the deep cleaning but he would not do that, so I left with out having anything done. In addition, they also tried to charge me $1200 for a crown that my insurance company verified that I should not be charged more than $180 for. They run this scam where they show you two sets of crowns... one with metal back for $800 and one full porcelain for $1200. The $1200 look great and the metal ones look like a pirate's tooth. I have a metal backed crown and it looks great and nothing like the junk they showed me. The office was very nice and they had all of the shiny high tech tools. Too bad they try to overcharge you and add un-needed services outside of your insurance to cover the cost of them. I will not go back and have filled a formal complaint with my insurance company regarding their unsavory business practices.

The doctor is more interested in being right than listening to patients, and solving their dental problems. He appears to have a very low understanding of general bite dynamics. I had to go to another dentist to have problems he caused fixed because he refused to admit that the problems existed, and refused to take positive action to cure the issue. His work inflamed other teeth, and could now lead to additional work that was not necessary before.

This doctor is very un-personable, uncooperative and treats his patients in a very condescending manner. He has no patience for in depth conversation regarding treatment, and refuses to consider any possibility other than his specific assumptions.
