Frequently Asked Questions

What is the usual wait time in your dental office?
In our office, your appointment is your exclusive reservation and we do not over-book. We will have everything set-up and ready to seat you on time. We want to ensure the most pleasant visit from the minute you step foot in this office to the smile on your face when you leave. We are so committed to being on time that you have a guarantee. If you arrive on time, you will be seated within 5 minutes of your reserved time, or you will receive a gift card and a personal, sincere apology from Dr. Sakurai.

Will there be discomfort?
We do everything we can to make you as comfortable as possible. This includes cushioned chairs and flat screen TVs in every room so you can watch movies and concerts during your dental procedures.

Does picking an Invisalign dentist matter?
Although the Invisalign procedure is created through a computer aided technology, your Invisalign dentist's participation is very hands-on. Because every mouth and desired results are different, Invisalign creations are a case-by-case matter requiring a lot of the dentist's knowledge, experience and expertise. Luckily, Invisalign has done the homework for you. There are less than 30 dentists in the world that Invisalign entrusts to teach their system and Dr. Sakurai has been on faculty since 2007 lecturing all over the country and internationally. Dr. Sakurai has worked hard and is proud to have earned this prestigious distinction. When looking for an Invisalign provider, experience matters!

How much will it cost?
With such a general question, it is hard to guess how much a procedure will cost since each patient and needs are all different. We offer free consultations for any procedures and reserve ample time for you to speak with Dr. Sakurai. Your consultation time gives you the opportunity to have one-on-one personal attention with Dr. Sakurai and to have all of your questions answered. He will give you a detailed treatment plan and go over all options and possibilities based upon your specific desired results. After you feel comfortable with the treatment plan, we can go over the fees and work with you on various payment types, if necessary.

Do you offer any incentives?
We love giving back to our patients and try to offer as many specials and deals as possible. It can vary from supporting an organization, to an opportunity to donate and give back to the community or any deals we can pass on to our patients. Often we like to support a good cause and get our patients involved. In the past, in appreciation of our patients, we have been able to offer free iPods, gifts, raffle drawings, free procedures, gift certificates and even cash back bonuses!

For current specials, you can always visit our Updates and Specials page.

What can I expect?
Depending on what your dental office experiences have been from the past, we can dispel any negative fears and encourage positive memories. Our staff's goal is to shatter any stigma the term "Dental Office" has earned throughout the years. You will be greeted by a friendly staff, and with "no wait" reservations, you will be escorted to an ample DVD selection of current movies and concerts. During your procedures, you will be seated in our comfy chairs to enjoy your entertainment selection, leaving with an enjoyable experience and feeling better about your smile.
