"Dr. Chinnam is an excellent dentist with a thriving practice in Soquel, CA. Her approach to dentistry is supported by modern equipment throughout the office, that is staffed by some of the nicest people I have met. Dr. Chinnam's approach to dentistry is extremely gentle and reassuring for the patient, whilst at the same time most thorough in all aspects of dental hygiene. I hesitate to say that a visit to a dentists is a pleasure, but in this case it as close to pleasurable as one can wish." - Barry Weavers, PhD
"Let me start by saying I really don't enjoy going to the dentist, I never have but continue to go for the good of my teeth. I must say that Dr. Chinnam and her team have completely changed my dental anxiety. Its crazy to say, but my cleanings actually feel good, if that's possible. If I need anything else done that goes beyond cleaning, Dr. Chinnam always goes above and beyond making sure that I'm comfortable and relaxed. Even my kids don't mind getting their teeth cleaned, and that's saying a lot. The office is relaxing, and the gals that run the front desk are so accommodating with my schedule. I consider them friends and am always flattered when I walk in the door and they make me feel right at home. Thank You Dr. Chinnam!!!" - The Treadwell's Family
"While in Dr. Chinnam's office for a cavity filling, for some reason my mouth wouldn't take the shot of Novocaine. Several shots were needed to fully numb the area, and throughout that fairly unsettling experience, Dr. Chinnam made me feel secure and comfortable as she displayed patient confidence and took care of me until my mouth cooperated! Kat assisted the Dr. seamlessly and her fun smile and personality helped keep my mind on our jokes and not on what was happening. Coco is another friendly assistant in the office who reached out to me and made me feel welcome. Deanna handled all my business upfront at the desk with professionalism, a genuine smile and competence. This dentist's office is a place you'll want to go, because of how excellent the care is, both for your teeth and you as a person. Now that's something to smile about." - Michelle Martinez
