I've been going to Dr. Murakami's office since I was in elementary school. Over the years, he's expanded his practice to include cosmetic dentistry (haven't used). He and his staff has done a good job keeping my teeth healthy. The most extreme procedure I had done was a crown. That experience was no problem and no pain even though I though there would be. He's probably near retirement age but he is grooming a new dentist to take his place. I've meet the new dentist once and he seems like a good guy although I haven't had any procedures done by him.
