I've been to Dr. Diane R Murakami DDS twice. The first time, was for a filling. In the past, if I ever had a filling, the dentist always asked me if I preferred 'tooth' colored filling (so it doesn't look obvious you had fillings) or they'd simply default to tooth-colored fillings.

Dr. Diane R Murakami gave me a dark colored filling by default. This was irksome. Also, I she really wanted to pull a molar of mine that three other dentists I've had in other cities (and in SF) said not to worry about. It didn't feel like she was working in my best interest.

Also, the 2nd time I went to get my teeth cleaned, the dental hygienist had halitosis. Not bad breath, out right halitosis. I felt like my eyes were tearing throughout that cleaning. The absolute worst experience.

I will say, I was persuaded to try this dentist because of some review site that described the office and patient area as "spa-like". True, they use pastel-like greens, and it feel like you might be going to a get a manicure in a nicely designed office, but at the end of the day...I'd go to another office. In fact, I'm looking for a new dentist! My old one, Dr. Dean isn't taking on patients and I lost my spot there. Oh well.

I have been Dr. Diane's patient for several years. I've had regular check-ups and a crown done in her clinic and never had any problems. Dr. Diane is skillful and caring. Diane's assistant and staff are knowledgeable and courteous. Overall, the environment is not intimidating at all. The only issue is that you might have to wait to get an appointment. However, I generally call if I need to see Diane in a hurry so I've never had to wait more than a day. Overall, my experience has been relatively painless at the clinic
