"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."
