Our Unique Approach

One Size Does Not Fit All

Each person that joins our practice is unique. Your experience at our office is important to us. We take the time to get to know you, hear your story, and customize your treatment. We deeply value your trust and want you to feel at home.

Our Process

We don’t base our recommendations on what dental insurance coverage dictates, or what is deemed “good enough” by the industry. We’re serious about delivering top tier service and care that is as unique as you are.

School is Cool

Dr. Taura and the entire team continually update and expand their knowledge and skills based on the most recent scientific studies. We deliver evidence-based dentistry based on what works and has worked for special situations like yours. By doing so, we increase the longevity of your teeth.

Teamwork Makes the Dream Work

We love what we do but we can’t do it without each other. We value the teamwork between each other, specialists and with our patients. Navigating through customized treatment plans can be daunting. Don’t worry, we’ll do it together as a team.

You’re Welcome Here

We are sensitive to everyone’s stories. Being embarrassed about the condition of your mouth is normal and we’ll help guide you towards health without judgement every step of the way.

Eat an Apple Until you’re 100

“An apple a day, keeps the doctors away.” Our duty as dentists is to make sure you can eat an apple every day to stay healthy. We think long-term. The recommendations we make to reduce your specific risks are with the goal of maintaining your smile for the rest of your life.

patient stories

“I've been a patient of Dr. Taura from the day he opened his present dental office in J-Town and have been very pleased with all aspects of the dental care that he and his friendly and helpful staff have given me.”

Jeff A.

“Very friendly staff, on time with their scheduled appointments. While waiting for your appointment, the sound of their fish tank soothes you. And I simply love their chairs for their clients, they massage you while having dental work done. And if that’s not enough, once you leave the dental office there’s Japantown to hang out at after.”

Chito A.

“I could not be happier with my experience at Dr. Taura's office. Every single person was friendly, completely dedicated to their job, and showed real professionalism toward their patients.”
