Here’s why our patients are smiling about Dr. James Oei

  • This is by far the best dentist office I’ve ever been to! Dr. Lei is the sweetest, most compassionate dentist at Ideal Dental and Randy, office manager, is awesome! Both the Dr., and staff make you feel comfortable, take the time to thoroughly explain dental plan that fit your needs. They do their very best at working with your budget so process can get started which reduces the stress of a financial burden all at one time!

  • I can’t express enough, my appreciation for this office and staff. I’ve alway avoided dental offices for personal reasons (I don’t numb easily, or stay numb). But Dr Oei is amazing, caring, and PATIENT. He has always made me comfortable and believes me when I say I can still feel the pain. Previous dentists have told me I’m lying. I’ve had dentists “fire” me as a patient because they don’t want to work on me. Dr Oei truly puts his patients first. Thank You

  • I love this office! It’s clean and looks pretty new! The location is close off the highway and easy to find. The staff is very friendly and professional. They always make me feel comfortable and seem to go above and beyond in service. The doctor as well is very kind and comforting. He pays great attention to detail and has wonderful communication skills! I used to go from dental office to dental office not quite feeling like it was a good fit for me. But Ideal Dental definitely will have my business from here on out! This mostly has to do with the staff (Randy, Dr. Oei and front staff)
