I think Dr. Mayeda is the best dentist in town!! Going to see the dentist had always been a terrible experience for me until I found Dr. Mayeda. I love the way she clearly and concisely explains everything she is doing. Joan, the receptionist, is absolutely wonderful in every way and very efficient. Yesterday I had my semi-annual cleaning and the hygienist was excellent - gentle and thorough. The office is so clean and neat - and it doesn't have that "dentist office" smell! I've never liked going to the dentist, but I faithfully keep my appointments with Dr. Mayeda and I feel like they take excellent care of me.
