Nitrous Oxide Sedation
Zoom!® Tooth Whitening
Dr. Mitoma was born and raised in Oakland, Ca. He graduated high school at the age of 16 and attended Pacific Union College in the NapaValley. He then relocated to Southern California and received his Dental Degree from Loma Linda University. Dr. Mitoma worked at a clinic in Stockton for a number of years, seeing thousands of patients and perfecting his root canal technique. In 1996 he opened up Arroyo Park Family Dental in Livermore. He was one of the first dentists in the Bay Area to offer CEREC crowns that could be milled at chair side and cemented the same day. Dr. Mitoma loves what he does and enjoys staying up-to-date with the latest developments in dental technology. He is an extremely skilled dental practitioner and performs even the most complex procedures. He has a delicate injection technique and often receives compliments from his patients. His confident and gentle manner has allowed him to gain the trust of patients with dental phobias and help them overcome their fears. In fact, many patients who had once needed medication for dental-related anxieties no longer need the medication in order to have their dental work completed. In addition to being an extremely skilled dental practitioner, Dr. Mitoma enjoys the great pleasure of being married to Dr. Nakamura. It's no wonder patients feel like family when they come! The family owned and operated environment takes the impersonal clinic feel out of the experience, and leaves patients at ease and feeling more assured of quality care.
Dr. Mitoma is also a major in electronics, a technology enthusiast, and a dedicated sports fan who is always rooting for his favorite teams: The Oakland Raiders, the Oakland Athletics and the Golden State Warriors. His other passion is cars, and he enjoys reading automotive magazines and knows makes and models of all cars ever made. He is an avid runner who averages 35 miles/week and has completed several marathons. He is a three time finisher of Ironman, an endurance race that starts with a 2.4-mile swim, then a 112-mile bike ride, finishing with a 26.2-mile run. He has also been a board member for the Pacific Crest Greater Swiss Mountain Dog Club since 1999. In addition, Dr. Mitoma demonstrates his musical abilities by playing the piano and singing in a men's choir.
Dr. Nakamura grew up in Southern California near Disneyland. She worked as the character "Snoopy" at the amusement park Knotts Berry Farm while attending Cal. State Univ. Long Beach. In 1991 she received a B.A. in Biology and started Dental school at Loma Linda University. During her schooling, she worked in the dental field as a dental assistant as well as a member of the front office staff. Before starting her own practice she gained experience and knowledge of the dental business by working in many different kinds of dental offices. After graduating, she relocated to Northern California, where she associated in practices in Burlingame and Berkeley, before buying the Tracy practice in 1999 with Dr. Mitoma, her husband and business partner. Dr. Nakamura is especially good with children. They are not intimidated by her small stature and are able to respond well to her. She has a number of patients who have been visiting her since the age of three and still enjoy coming to the dentist. Dr. Nakamura loves oral pathology and diseases of the mouth. She has taken an extensive amount of continuing education in this specialized field. Her injection technique is very gentle and many patients comment on how they didn't even feel it. She is excellent at diagnosing and finding problems before they begin to cause pain. Dr. Nakamura has been a certified fitness instructor since 1989 and has taught all types of aerobics (spinning, step, kickboxing). She currently teaches a hip-hop class at a private gym in Oakland. She also started playing the drums in 2002 and is now playing in an all girl band. In addition to spending two days a week practicing dentistry, Dr. Nakamura also manages the office, her rental property, her household and her 2 daughters, Taryn and Scarlett. She loves animals and has a bull terrier named Bhree. Her hobbies include traveling, dancing, biking, hiking and her latest passion, cake decorating.
"We have been patients of Dr. Nakamura and Mitoma since my son was a toddler. He is 11 now and we still see Chris and the gang every 6 months. I love this dental office because everyone is so friendly and rarely is it painful. The doctors and hygienist are so wonderful with kids. Thank you Jessie, Edward and the rest of the gang!"
"Typically when you look up the word 'Dentist' you will see the meaning 'pain' then the sound of a drill shrieking in your head and the thought of a SHOT in the mouth, OUCH!!! I don't know about you, but that deterred me quite a bit from a dentist office for regular visits.
I've needed extensive dental work for years, but couldn't get past the 'old meaning of a dentist'. When I found Dr.'s Mitoma & Nakamura, I was very impressed, first I spoke with Chris the receptionist, who demonstrates the real meaning of 'customer service' which seems to be a rare quality these days, I asked several questions in the which Chris had every answer.
When Dr. Nakamura came in on my first visit I couldn't believe she was actually the dentist, she greeted and spoke with me as if she knew me for years, each of her assistants have the same bedside manner, I felt so comfortable they understood all my fears and had a resolution for each; when there was drilling they provided me with a list of movies to pick from, a head set that had a little TV screen in case I didn't want to watch the big TV, with nice little speakers to cover my ears; Yes! REAL Movies with stereo sound on the head set, I actually enjoy my visits. When I was cold they provided me with a blanket!
Our old dental office would have to send us to several different dental offices to have certain procedures done which added to my procrastination in getting my teeth fixed; Dr.'s M & N are a 'one stop shop' extractions, root canals, cosmetic dental work, partials etc. with very good quality.
Dr.'s M & N both have a gift when it comes to the dreaded shots; my husband and I both did not feel a thing. The Dr. would numb the targeted spot then let you tell them when it's time to stick that dreaded needle in or to give you more numbing stuff, they go at your pace which in our experiences was very rare with other dentist.
My husband and I have sent family and friends to them and we are just amazed that a dentist office has a staff that isn't just professional, but all around nice people."
"I have been bringing my kids to Dr. Jessie's office since 1997. I love the staff. They are always friendly, helpful and take time to talk to you. I have referred several friends to our dentist and they all call and thank me. We love you guys!"
"To anyone who has a fear of the dentist please rest assured Dr. Mitoma and Dr. Nakamura will put you at ease. Their entire staff makes me feel comfortable a trip to the dentist is now almost like going to visit family! I actually look forward to my dental appointments. And this coming from someone who was so scared of the dentist I did not go to one for over 20 yrs. I can not say enough about how professional and caring everyone in their office is, they actually care."
"I have been coming to this dentist since 1989! The staff always makes me feel comfortable...and like they can't wait to see me at the next 6 month check up. They are always timely and work around my schedule as much as they can. Thank you so much Dr.'s Mitoma and Nakamura and all the girls."
"All the dentist and staff are absolutely wonderful! I have not been to the dentist in years because of my fear, and now I enjoy coming. Even my 8 year-old son, who used to have to be sedated and strapped to a board looks forward to coming to the dentist! We will never go anywhere else!"
