Hi, we just switched dental insurance plan and have to find a new family dentist as former our dentist is not in the network. Do you have any family-friendly dentist that you can recommend? I've looked on reviews on this site but found none in San Jose area. Thanks!

What can I do next?

So What Happened?

Hi everyone, thanks so much for all the recommendations. It's great to know there are many wonderful dentists around. We've decided to go with Dr. Ron Matsuura as he is the only one covered by our dental plan. Thank you again.

I would recommend Dr. Wolkstein (either Dr. Phil or his son Dr. Gregory) as a pediatric DDS and Dr. Richard Farrington as a general dentist. They are located on Blossom Hill Rd. in San Jose (close to Hwy. 85), Dr. Farrington is very gentle and his practice is well established. Office phone number is: ###-###-####.
Good-luck!

Hi. My children and I adore our dentist, Leslie Sugimoto. He is in the Evergreen area of San Jose. While he doesn't market himself as a "Family" dentist, he and his staff are very gentle and they all obviously really like children. They do a great job and the office is a calm place, if you have a nervous little one. Address: Dr. Leslie Sugimoto, 3151 South White Rd Ste 211,San Jose, CA 95148

I don't know if he takes your insurance, but I love my dentist in the Almaden area. He is gentle,personable,communicative, and has a great staff. He is Dr. Robert Jennings located on Crown Blvd.###-###-####) I'm very picky about dentists and anxious about dentists in general, so I'm so glad I found a dentist I trust who won't hurt me or overcharge me.
Good luck finding a dentist you feel comfortable with!

My family and I (three kids now 16, 14 and 7) have been going to the Monterey Dental Clinic over on Monterey Highway in the shopping center of the Walmart. It is a female Doctor's practice and she does excellent work. She takes regular insurance plus Tricare. My kids have been going since birth and we have been going for over 10 years. D.

S.,
First, I would recommend a pediatric dentist for your child...they are much better suited and the offices are more inviting than a regular family dentist. My son goes to Dr.Adolfo Barrera and he is great! I also have friends using Dr. Gregory Wolkstein who comes highly recommended.
For general dentistry for yourself and husband, Dr. Richard Farrington is great! Good Luck!

For our children (now age 6), we really like Dr. Randy Ligh on Bascom Avenue in San Jose. We adults stayed with our long-time dentists, but found they didn't do well with children. Dr. Ligh doesn't see adults, though, so if you are looking for one dentist for the whole family, he is not the one. His office does see children through teens (and braces).

I love Dr. Yoshida on Saratoga Ave, near Westgate Mall. I went to Dr. Ralph Yoshida as a child, and my daughter goes there now. His son, Dr. Brian Yoshida is also an awesome dentist, and is in the same office. They are a pediatric dentist, so are geared for kids. I've seen older teens and adults in there too, so you might want to ask if they see the whole family, or how that works. ###-###-####
