I met Dr. Sakurai 25 years ago when she was filling in for another dentist, and just prior to setting up her own practice. I believe she was born to be a caretaker and she has the ultimate bedside manner, accompanied by an upbeat personality with a gentle sense of humor. It's always a pleasure to be around her and her staff. For dental chickens she's the best. Last year I left Santa Monica for the desert 140 miles away, but I still do a 280 mile round trip from Joshua Tree to Santa Monica to see my dentist who I trust 100% for her expertise. This is as good as it gets for a general dentist!

AMAZING! I had a very frustrating situation and Dr. Sakurai and her office came to the rescue! I called over 20 dental offices in Santa Monica and Dr. Sakurai’s office was the ONLY one that even listened to my story and was willing to help me out. Many offices basically didn’t want small procedures or fixes that didn’t make them much money and didn’t want to because of a “covid” risk. I was only calling because it was an emergency, and last time I checked, dentists are health care professionals. I came to California for a month long internship when an old filling fell out. I don’t have dental insurance and a consultation at another dental office quoted me $6500 for two root canals and refused to put in a temporary filling until I could come up with a plan. I needed a temporary filling to hold me over until I could get back home and get the work done. After speaking to the receptionists at Dr. Sakurai’s office, the Doctor herself called me to find out what my situation was and how she can help. She even allowed me to bring my xrays from a previous office and consoled me that we will figure out a temporary fix over the phone. Today, she fixed both my teeth with a temporary resin filling and ensured me that it should be fine until I can get home and get the proper dental work done.

I've been in Santa Monica for almost 24 years now and I tried many recommended dentists before I found Dr. Kari Sakurai. I've been going to her for a year and a half and have nothing but great things to say. When I came to Dr. Sakurai I was already on guard because so many dentists have told me I needed things that I didn't need. She's honest and gives options that are affordable and reasonable. And her work is excellent....and did I mention how clean and comfortable and painless my visits have been! And she always has the top-of-the-line state-of-the-art equipment. If you're looking for an excellent Dentist in Santa Monica.....you can stop looking!!
