    Everyone in the office is incredibly friendly. Dr. Itani saw a minor issue that other dentists have never mentioned and gave me some great recommendations. Also, the hygienist, I believe Dr. Adam was one of the most gentle hygienist I’ve ever had.

    Staff was very friendly; the X-Rays and exam was very comprehensive. I saw Dr. Smith, who actually went over the X-Rays with me. It was a very transparent process with no attempt to upsell me on anything I didn't need.

    The information they gave me, with insurance for dental work and what I may want to take into consideration was understandable, accurate and made available to me. They encouraged good practice for everyday dental care and they were flexible with an extended visit.

    Great, high-tech, and timely experience. Dr. Itani was really transparent and even showed me (via camera) what everything looked like. I'm new to SF and it's been difficult to find a decent dentist nearby. I'm glad I finally found one I can rely on moving forward.

    Felt like I was in really good hands. I appreciated Dr. Itani explaining and showing me my problem areas with a camera and my xrays. My dental hygienist also had tons of great advice to offer, tailored to my teeth and gum health. I can tell everyone enjoys working there too, it was a very positive and friendly office.

    AMAZING experience. I was on the hunt for a new dentist after my old one billed me twice for the same procedure....5 months after the fact. Yeah. Anyways, Itani dental was AMAZING! I had an 8AM appointment and came early to fill out my paperwork and they were there! The cleaning was SUPER thorough and done by the dentist. I had a 10AM meeting and was worried b/c their checkups normally take 2 hours (so thorough!!!) They rushed it and took so many types of pictures and did so many tests more than any dentist I've EVER been to. The service was amazing, the atmosphere was spa like and I'm actually looking forward to my appointment in 6 months!

    Amazing experience. From the front desk to the care, I'm so happy I found Itani. I was running so late bc of bus issues and they were very understanding, and flexible. The care was superb. I was nervous because I hadn't been to the dentist in two years. But Dr. Karim patiently answered my million and one questions. I also loved that the evaluation was done mainly with photos and x-rays - not the uncomfortable and nerve-wracking prodding I receive at most offices. I'm very impressed and happy to have found excellent care.

    Dr. Kamir was great for my first exam. He was gentle, kind, and explained everything in detail. If I had questions he immediately knew what to answer and made me feel comfortable. Kat was my hygienist and she was bubbly, friendly, and really cleaned these teeth! She went over my oral care regimen and answered all questions I had. I highly recommend Itani Dental! I truly look forward to my next visit.

    Dr. Itani's office is a friendly, comfortable experience. Every single employee I've interacted with was much more conversational than transactional. From reception to the hygienist to the dentist, I felt like I was apart of the family. Definitely the first time I've been relaxed at the dentist. Highly recommend Dr Itani's practice!

The whole process went much smoother than any other dentist visit I have had in the past, no complaints whatsoever.

    The entire visit was extremely efficient especially considering my first time. I liked the fact that they pre-approve all procedures with insurance before doing anything which reduces the chances for unpleasant surprises. The staff was excellent as was Dr. Woo. There is a big emphasis on explaining what is being done and why it is being done which is refreshing.
