"I am a simple woman with a complicated mouth. Gratefully I found Dr. Nishimura in 1994 and have been seeing her ever since. I did stray once due to a move (40+ miles away), a new baby and working fulltime but it didn’t take long before I found my way back to her. When it comes to your mouth, excellence trumps distance. And excellent she is. Dr. Nishimura is well educated and keeps up with advances, techniques and procedures in her field. She has more certificates and diplomas on her walls than a drive in has speakers. If your to young to understand that analogy then Google it. She is simply exceptional in every way and here’s why; I’ve had some fine dentists in my 58 years. But fine is a funny thing. It’s just that, “fine” until you experience excellence then you surely appreciate the difference. Anyone who has ever had a bad tooth/teeth knows the value of an exceptional doctor of dentistry. So what makes Dr. Nishimura so exceptional? Last year I had a nagging toothache so eventually I went to see Dr. Nishimura. She did her usual and by that I mean conducted an extensive line of questioning before she even peered into my mouth. Following the examination, she didn’t just ask about my mouth, but asked about my ear, my neck and my level of fatigue. She suspected I had shingles, in my mouth, and advised me to see my GP who confirmed the diagnosis. What Dr. Nishimura “saw” was unseen to the naked eye and as my GP described, “barely perceptible “with magnification. Thanks to Dr. Nishimura, it was caught early enough that it could be treated. Here is an example of not only her expertise but also of her humanity. I had a very old (pre Dr. Nishimura) root canal gone wrong. I was in excruciating pain and I’ve endured childbirth, meningitis, tortioned ovaries and I could go on. The endodontist I had seen, although a talented clinician was less than useless when it came to my enduring pain and on Friday no less. Then I called Dr. Nishimura, who provides her cell phone number on the office-outgoing message by the way (yes, really). And she actually either picks up or calls you back. Suffice it to say Dr. Nishimura was responsive to my pain. Within an hour, she had arranged for me to see an oral surgeon who was able to extract the tooth and alleviate my pain (that day!). Trust me, the tooth was shot despite grand efforts to save the old girl. And..Dr. Nishimura called me later that night, and the next day to see how I was feeling! Who does that in this day and age? Who? Dr. Nishimura, that’s who. Kindness. Humanity. Expertise. Most recently her hygienist, Emily, noticed an odd patch in my mouth. Long story short, Dr. Nishimura made arrangements for me to see an oral surgeon (in her office!) who did a biopsy. I was told it would take weeks for the results but thanks to Casey, who stayed on it, I got the results MUCH sooner than expected. All’s swell but boy what if it weren’t and it had gone unseen? Thank you Emily. On the more mundane level of crowns, bonding’s, night guards, and invisiline (sp?) etc., she is a perfectionist and truly her work is pure art. Not surprising then to learn that Dr. Nishimura is a gifted artist and musician in her “real” life. If this whole dentistry thing hadn’t worked out I am confident I would have seen her work in galleries. She is just that good and one world so clearly blends into her other. Well I could go on but its time to floss. And so, if you are shopping for a dentist. Stop right here; you have just hit the jackpot."
Before anything, for me, excellence is so important with any service I use. I am not easily convinced, so this review comes from the evidence I personally have seen. I am extremely satisfied with my several experiences at Lexington Dental Care. First, the price is very fair, and no more expensive than what normal procedures cost. This is important to consider when looking for a dentist. Dr, Nishimura uses techniques that are not just cutting edge, but very efficient, with really good results (getting a tooth capped is done usually in 1 visit. I cannot tell you how much time this saves me. And the caps fit like a glove) I don't think I have had a more thorough cleaning (Emily) and the dental assistants (Donna) are excellent! Now, for me, what also helped was that even with major teeth problems, I have never felt uneasy. Dr. Nishimura and everybody in her office treats me like a person, and my dignity is respected. That also counts a lot. So, in conclusion, the cutting edge technology Dr. Nishimura uses with great precision, the complete work by all the dental staff, and the attention to detail and to the patient makes this a really good place to get work done. For me, the evidence is there. A great place for anyone who wants to get really excellent work done on their teeth.

Dr. Nishimura and I have been working on cases together for over twenty-five years. In that time I have had the opportunity to observe her careful attention to detail, helpful manner and thoughtful, caring treatment. Together we developed a team approach to treating patients with gum disease and replacing missing or hopeless teeth with implants, based on sound dental principles.
Brenda possesses all the attributes of an extraordinary dentist. She is both innovative in her approach to patient care and rigorous about using the latest and most effective dental techniques. She is committed to finding the best treatment, from the simplest to the most complex types of cases. Once a treatment plan has been developed in an analytical manner, Brenda is able to carry it out with the precision needed for an excellent result.
Brenda’s commitment to superior dentistry is obviously great for the patient. However, in working in a team approach, her desire for excellence has always challenged me to achieve my best result for patients, as well. This has been a winning situation for everyone, and I feel lucky to know and work with Brenda.

“I’m a middle aged male executive that has had a couple of challenging dental problems. I’ve always suffered from gum recession that left me with uncomfortable oral cold sensitivity since childhood. Despite two bouts with orthodontia, I’ve also been unhappy with the shapes of my teeth and the look of my smile. For over two decades I’ve sought a dental team to address these, including top dentists in the Chicago and Washington, DC areas. But to no avail. They addressed the recession with bonding, but the bonding never seemed to survive for even a few months, let alone a year. As for my unattractive teeth, they merely pitched me on expensive implants or veneers, which I rejected.
Then, quite by chance, I stumbled on Dr. Brenda Nishimura at Lexington Dental Care. In just one visit she completely eliminated the temperature sensitivity problem with very resilient bonding, which remains solidly in place after over five years. And perhaps even more importantly, in the process she very artfully employed bonding material to remodel all of my visible teeth, creating an entirely new and wonderful smile for me. I couldn’t believe how good I looked, and my smile is still a great source of pride for me many years later! No expensive implants or porcelain veneers were necessary. Those other dentists I tried over the years could learn a lot from Dr. Nishimura and her world class team!
And . . . oh yes . . . like most people I often avoided trips to the dentist for routine cleanings, since the procedures can be quite uncomfortable, especially for those of us with sensitive teeth. Well, Lexington Dental’s hygienists have developed a new technique for cleaning that involves the application of a topical painkiller early in the procedure, and now one can get a very thorough teeth cleaning and oral exam completely free of any discomfort. Ahhh!
Needless to say . . . I cannot recommend this office enough. Whether you just want a thorough and painless cleaning, or the rebuilding of your smile by an artist worthy of a world class sculptor, just go here!”
I am very fortunate to have the opportunity to work with Dr. Nishimura in the evaluation and treatment of patients exhibiting symptoms of head, neck and facial pain, i.e. TMJ, myofascial pain syndromes, headaches, etc. It is always a pleasure to work with her patients as I am confident they are receiving the best care possible from a very professional, knowledgeable yet caring and compassionate dentist. She is up-to-date on the latest treatments, as she frequently attends continuing education seminars and is always willing to share the information with me.
I have always felt that she values my opinion and input in the treatment of her patients, for which I am most appreciative! I have the utmost respect for Dr. Nishimura and am grateful for any opportunity to work with her. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. Mary Cronin, Physical Therapist
