My family has been going to Dr. Tjoa for many years. Even though he is a great dentist, I am still terrified of having dental work done! I put it off as long as I could and had to go in to have a crown replaced. Dr. Tjoa is very gentle and jokes around to lighten up the situation. I didn't even feel the shots and he talked me through all the work he was doing to ease my thoughts. Also he was able to make the permanent crown in the office and complete to job the same day! The hygienists are awesome also! One of them uses a trick with salt to stop my son from gagging during xrays. No other dentist office even child dentist offices did that. They just gagged him until he threw up! We love Dr. Tjoa and his staff!
