I have TMJ (a painful jaw disorder that is aggravated by dental work- esp. if jaw is held open for extended periods of time) and going to the dentist for me is usually a real problem AFTER the visit. When we moved to Oakland I was pleased to find a dentist nearby and thought we would give him a try.

First allow me to say, this is no large scale operation... just the dentist and his wife (receptionist and general helper), but all of my appointments have been quick, efficient and both of them are very friendly and put you at ease.

There is no hygenist- Doc. Smith does everything from x-rays to cleaning and check up. Is the the most gentle plaque scraper in the country? No. Is he quick and efficient with minimum of trauma? Yes. I have had fillings (never even felt the needle for the novacaine- even though he did not use topical anesthetic first), my husband had a wisdom tooth extracted (very little discomfort during or after procedure) and we have both had all the routine services multiple times. Best of all- I have had no jaw discomfort because I am in and out of there quick, quick, quick!

So, if you are looking for a pediatric dentist- probably not. If you are looking for the latest high-tech gadgets or someone to hold your hand while your teeth are cleaned- keep looking. But, if you are looking for solid basic dental care and want it close to home, you might want to give Dr. Smith a try.

PROS: quick appointments, nice staff,
CONS: no frills
