ok this is a bit of a confession.. I really hate dentist visits.. like a swift kick to the a$$ when you're not expecting it.. I just hate to go..
But I decided to go after my BF told me it was either the dentist chair or freeway for me. SInce the BF has been going to the same dentist for years, he booked an appointment for me during his last visit..
Right from the start, DDS Kaufman and his staff were kind and honest and really put me at ease. I have had many bad experiences in my day with dentists, so I really appreciated the time they all took to make me feel comfortable and to explain everything..I can't believe that I actually rather enjoyed my visit here. Really great staff and I will be a regular 6 monther from now on.
And it turns out, no cavities!! Just a cleaning and I was out the door!

I am somewhat conflicted about my opinion about this dental practice. On one hand- the staff and Dr Kaufman are really nice and personable. I was almost at the point of choosing Dr. Kaufman as my new dentist since I'm new to this area and needed a local dentist. Based on yelp reciews and some personal recommendations, I've decided to try him out with cleaning first, then move onto more complicated issues such as completing an implant. Unfortunately, we never got to the point of doing the implant work due to sloppy follow up by him or his staff. Re: cleaning- it had some shortcuts. The ultrasound was never used. The xrays were taken without me authorizing the procedure and the charges. The gums were really hurting for a week after the cleaning. That has not been the case with my old dentist.
So after the cleaning I make an appointment to start the implant procedure. The appointment was 3 weeks after the cleaning to allow Dr Kaufman to gather all info from my oral surgeon and order the supplies for the implant. When I arrived in his office for my appointment neither he nor his staff knew why I was there. The information was never requested- the materials never ordered AND he was blaming his front office staff for the mistake which is not very nice. To make the long story short- It looks like I have to drive back to sf each time to use my original dentist. But I suppose it's worth it. And btw- Dr Kaufman's charges for the implant procedure are 15% higher than my sf dentist. Although that wasn't the deciding factor. I just really wanted a dentist who is on top of things and knows his patients needs

Simply the best! Dr. Kaufman is personable, thorough, and knowledgeable... simply a master of his craft! I travel from Vallejo to San Rafael to see him, and there is definitely no other dentist that is worth the headache of Highway 37 traffic.

For over ten years I have been a very happy client of Dr. Kimball Kaufman and his team. Check-ups, fillings, replacement of really od fillings which were breaking, and a cap. Great people, state-of-the-art equipment reasonable rates.
When numbing is required, Dr. Kaufman knows the right spot to knock out only the area he is working on and the doses wear off pretty quickly without lingering pain.
I have referred a number of friends and co-workers to his practice and they all have become regulars.
