I have low pain tolerance and is my first time to do filling with Dr. Nozaki, Image Dental; but because of awesome staff (esp. Holly) my anxiety lowered and Dr. Nozaki did a great, no pain filling.

I was afraid for nothing! Thank you all :-) GOD bless!!!
EXCELLENT!!! If you're looking for great dental care look no further than Image Dental. Friendly, Professional and Caring they strive for perfection. I've been with Image Dental for a number of years, and their superb quality of care remains number one! Dental excellence doesn't get any better than Dr. Nozaki and the staff at Image Dental!
Image dental puts patients first. This week, when I had emegency, they scheduled me within an hour. During the visit, Dr. Nozaki, assessed the problem, and provided a permanent solution, instead of taking care of it for the 'time being'. Appreciate the service, and attitude towards patients.

FAQs

  • Why should I choose your practice for my dental care?

    We believe dental care should be about more than just fixing teeth. It's about feeling comfortable, well-informed, and truly cared for. Dr. Nozaki is dedicated to staying on the cutting edge of dental technology, so you get the best possible treatment options. But we never lose sight of the human touch – your comfort and smile satisfaction is our top priority!
  • I'm a bit nervous about my first appointment. What can I expect?

    We totally get it! Our goal is to change how you feel about going to the dentist. We'll start by getting to know you and any concerns you have. Expect a gentle cleaning, a thorough exam by Dr. Nozaki, and probably some X-rays. We'll explain everything clearly and work with you to create a plan that puts you at ease.
  • Do you accept my dental insurance?

    We work with a wide range of popular PPO plans, including Delta Dental, MetLife, Guardian, and Cigna. The best way to know for sure is to give our team a call at (209) 955-1500. We're happy to verify your coverage and explain how to maximize your benefits before your visit!

  • I get major anxiety at the dentist. Do you have solutions?

    Absolutely! We understand dental visits can be stressful, and we're here to help. From extra-gentle techniques to laughing gas or sedation options, we tailor our approach to your comfort level. Our goal is to make your appointments as anxiety-free as possible, so you can actually relax while we take care of your smile.

  • What's the one thing I absolutely MUST do for good oral health?

    Brush twice a day, floss every night, and see us for regular checkups! It sounds simple, but this routine is your best defense against cavities, gum problems, and more. Cleanings and exams let us catch issues early, saving you from bigger, more complicated (and expensive!) problems later.
  • Do you use the latest dental technology?

    You bet we do! Dr. Nozaki is passionate about bringing patients the best of what modern dentistry offers. From digital X-rays for less radiation to 3D scanners for precise planning, we invest in technology that means more comfortable, effective, and long-lasting results for your smile.
