I’ve been going to Dr. Miyazawa for the past few years and have been very satisfied with everything his office has to offer.
The staff is very friendly and accommodating. Cleanings and check ups are thorough, and plans for future dental work are discussed and explained clearly. Appointment reminders and last minute openings are sent via emails and/or text messages depending on your preference. Their office also offers notary public services to patients, though I’m not sure if it’s available during all business hours or by appointment.
It’s obvious that the staff genuinely cares about their patients and making them feel comfortable during appointments. Prior to getting your teeth cleaned or getting some dental work done, patients are offered a hot paraffin hand wax, which softens and soothes your hands. They also provide a mini hot towel facial massage at the end of the appointment. On a more personal level, they even checked up on me after hours and sent me flowers after a lengthy, complicated dental procedure.
So if you’re looking for a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Miyazawa!
Dr. Miyazawa has been our family dentist since shortly after moving to Oahu in 2006. We have found him to be very professional along with his entire office. We now view him as a friend along with being our dentist. I have recommended him to friends who have found him to be just what we promised them – a true professional dentist!
I do recommend Dr. Miyazawa if you’re looking for a dentist. You won’t be disappointed.
Thank you so much DR. MIYAZAWA and his wonderful staff (Mama) (sister)
I visited Dr. Miyazawa recently for an “emergency” case because I somehow managed to chip not one but TWO of my front teeth. I was desperate to find a dentist during the COVID crisis and was beyond thrilled to know that the office would take me the same day! From the front desk, and the dental assistant, to the Dr. himself, this was one of the most impressionable appointments I’ve ever had. I was very candid about my insurance situation given the COVID impact and the office was able to work with me to find a resolution. I thought I would just go in for a consult, but walked out with a smile on my face and new non chipped teeth. Such a kind Dr. and staff, and I will be sure to come back to this office !
I’ve been a patient of Dr. Miyazawa’s for over 10 years. No matter what the visit is for I always receive 100% the best professional care.
Dr. and his staff are so warm and welcoming the moment you step into the office. They have a way of truly making you feel like you’re family.
Plans and procedures are discussed with you before hand, so there’s no surprises. Everything is explained clearly.
Appointments are easy to get, if not same day, some time that week. This is so convenient with a crazy schedule.
You can expect to feel pampered! They do hand waxing for softer hands while getting your dental work done and a heavenly mini facial massage with a warm steamy cloth.
Up to date technology for instant X-rays and care. Clean front and back office.
I highly recommend Dr. Miyazawa if you’re looking for a professional cosmetic dentist.
Dr. Jeff puts his patients as one of his top priorities. I haven’t gotten that from many other dentists. I fly from island to island for my appointments.
To my surprise, when initially calling his office for a consultation, I was transferred to him immediately. Talk about quality care and integrity.
I highly recommend Dr.Jeff.
I just left the dental office right now and let me tell you, they are all top notch! It’s my very first dental appointment on the island since I just moved here. The front desk staff is super friendly and I even got a tour of the facility and met the team. My hygienist was super nice (forgot her name), but she checked to see if I was doing good throughout the entire process. Once finished, Dr M. introduced himself to me and asked if I had any questions about my appointment. I go to the dentist every four months and this was one of the smoothest cleanings I have ever had. Thank you very much and you’ve gained a new patient! I’ll see you all in four months. Mahalo.
