I am age 70 and have been with Dr. Arellano for more than 15 years. He is the only dentist I have seen who is happy to present his approach to dentistry. And he is the only dentist I have ever called, "my dentist." He is the only dentist to recommend a special cleaning program to prove if I know how to keep plaque off my teeth. (Now I do, and only have them cleaned twice a year.) I do not have insurance and he is more than kind about my time payments. I have severe emphysema, and after he recognized dental signs that I was experiencing sleep apnea, he encouraged me to speak with my brilliant immunologist, who in turn said she was so grateful. She ran her own nighttime breathing tests and now I am on oxygen at night. But things will get even better, because Medicare will cover several sleep apparatus and Dr. Arellano can arrange everything. His office staff is the absolute best. If you know you will have an upcoming procedure, they will let you make payments before the dental date! Dr. Arellano and his entire Office Team of Specialists are worth your time and money, and more importantly, will help you keep your teeth.

Dr. Arellano is a GREAT dentist! He does beautiful and thorough work and does not push unneeded procedures. Highly Recommended!

I've been a patient of Dr. Arellano for about eight years, he's the fourth dentist I've had in SF and I went through the first three in less than three years. So I'm particular to say the leat. I've had Dr. Arellano work on several crowns, a few fillings and even a tooth whitening job. Always as pleasant an experience as a visit to the dentist can be. He's been ultra professional, quick, painless(!) and he's an all around nice guy. Not too chatty, but very personable - just the right mix. The rest of the staff is awesome as well - from May (sp?) at the front desk always calling me with a reminder 24 hours before my appointment, to the highly competent staff of hygienists - they're all total professionals at what they do. Would recommend Dr. Arellano and the staff to anyone looking for a new dentist.

I've been coming here for about three years and they are fantastic! Very thorough and holistic intake that they update every visit. Everyone who works there is really nice and helpful and scheduling is always easy. They also offer complimentary teeth cleaning to regular clients on occasion. I'm not a huge fan of going to the dentist but this is about as painless as going to the dentist can be. Highly recommended.

I have been a patient at this office since 1986. Recently, I had an emergency on a Sunday, and Dr. Arellano called me back immediately, and met me in his office to attach a loose front tooth cap. The staff is exceedingly helpful and supportive. They are very proactive about preventative tooth care, and are aware of the latest innovations in all aspects of dental cosmetic procedures. I recommend them enthusiastically and without reservation!

Well... I've been a patient of Dr. Arellano for twenty-five years. More notably... I engaged the good doctor when I lived in the Richmond District near GG Park, but since 1992, I've been living in Alameda. Also, the dental insurance I've carried over the years from job-to-job did not consistently list Dr. Arellano as "in-network". Nevertheless, he is still my dentist. His advice, professionalism, periodic scolding, good humor, and impeccable skills have kept me coming back. He is committed to keeping-up with the latest technology. Several years ago when implant technology matured, Dr. Arellano coordinated a lengthy process with an oral surgeon to complete my treatment. Needless to say, I have been quite satisfied with the result. The offices of his practice are pristine and state-of-the-art. The staff is flexible, polite, accommodating, experienced, and share the doctor's good humor - most important for a dentist's office. You can't go wrong...

I can't let another moment go by without thanking you for the work you did on my smile this year. These veneers are so organic, so subtle, and so effective! This was truly money well spent. The holiday photos have just come back, and in every one of them, my smile is bright and confident-exactly what I asked you for! And these photos were taken in a casual situation, without controlled lighting - just imagine what this will look like on-camera in a professionally lit context!

Several years ago I had my teeth whitened. I do drink coffee, tea and red wine so shortly after the color seemed to go back to my original color. Recently Dr. Arellano did what he called "deep bleaching". I can't believe how great my teeth look and they have stayed white even though I continue to drink coffee, tea and red wine. His assistant, Alicia, did most of the procedure and she was great. Made me feel very comfortable. I would recommend this office to anyone!!!

Hands down the best dentist I've ever had. Thanks to a former co-worker's recommendation, I've been in great care for the past 2 years. Like most, I am not a fan of dentists & the pain they seem to inflict on me, but Dr. Arellano is soooo goood. I usually brace myself every time I have to get a shot in the mouth, but just yesterday, he gave me the BEST SHOT EVER! He was elated that I told him too. It was super gentle. I asked if he changed his technique (not that the other shots were ever horrible... just not this good), but he just stated that different parts of the mouth require different levels of care due to sensitivity. In all other respects he is also awesome. And, his staff is amazingly nice & on point... Mei especially & I forget the dental assistant's name that usually helps Dr. A (a young & very sweet Latina/White? chickadee). I also have Debbie as hygienist, and she is cool beans. She tells me how it is and what I need to do to make it better.

I had done veneers and invisalign in 2009. During that time, Dr. Arellano and his whole office staff provided excellent services. They accommodated my busy working schedule and still ultimately followed the treatment plan. In terms of the procedure, I am very pleased and happy. Dr. Arellano did meticulous work with his gifted talent. His patience and well manors made a person like me smile graciously. It's beyond "Thank You" that I can express myself on how much I appreciate Dr. Arellano. I like Dr. Arellano's high level technique skills, people skills, and calm friendly office environment. I always tell my friends how good he is. Just look at my beautiful teeth. The staff is also very professional, friendly, and I couldn't ask more than what I had experienced with each of them.

TO WHOM IT MAY CONCERN: I want to share that my dental experience with Dr. Arellano, DDS, and Dr, Hahn, DDS, has been exceptional and their supporting staff both efficient and friendly. With my holistic slant toward medicine and dental care, the Doctors have provided excellent alternatives to support and improve my dental and overall health. I highly recommend their services.

Manny is very personable & polite. His gentle approach performing hygienist procedures placed me at ease. I mentioned that to Mei and she said he has received many compliments. With my recent visit to your office for routine cleaning and your web page , I had to make comment. He mentioned a veneer would cosmetically enhance the chips I have on my bottom 2 front teeth. I thanked him for the consultation and explained my situation of a previous attempt to repair them. His positive approach and demeanor is a value to and for your staffing.

When I went to Dr. Arellano I had been told by a Periodontist that I needed to lose three teeth due to gum disease. I was also in constant pain. Dr Arellano acknowledged my panic and grief and suggested laser surgery. Now, two years later, I still have all my teeth and I even have bone regrowth on some of them! Debbie is my hygienist and she is fast, gentle and lovely to chat with. She also recommends home care specifics. I have gotten over my terror of dentists thanks to the amazing and caring staff at this office. This also includes Mae, the incredibly friendly and personable receptionist. I cannot recommend them enough...

My procedure was a repair for a chipped bonded tooth. Dr. Arellano and his assistants were very attentive during the procedure, and I was satisfied with the result. Dr. Arellona provides a comfortable environment that is friendly, and he always answers my questions whenever I have procedures done. I think the staff is very professional and I appreciate the reminder phone call I receive before my scheduled appointment. Overall, I am satisfied with the service I receive, both from the staff and Dr. Arellano.

Dr. Arellano, I wanted to express a note of thanks for being a part of your team the past 9 years. I have thoroughly enjoyed my time of employment here. I appreciate your expertise in the field as well as your passion for dentistry. Your professionalism, perfectionism & thoroughness is a gift. Your skills as well as those of your staff cannot be compared. I know I will never find an office w/the same unified goals that makes an office so pleasant, clean, organized & efficient. I truly value and appreciate all that I have learned here & can now feel confident that I possess some of the best training and highest skills. I regret having to leave "my home", by will have the fondest memories. I hope you have continued success & that you find a sufficient assistant to fill your team.

For years I have gone down town for my dental cleanings thinking that the attention down there was the best. Today I went for a cleaning with Annie Lam at the office of Leo Arellano. She was careful, attentive and very nice. Although I am not a fan of teeth cleaning as I have gum recession, Annie made it easy and the staff throughout the office is cheerful. Best of all is how CLEAN the teeth are now. WOW! Thank you!

Hi Dr. Arellano & staff, Welcome to Anna and Jonathan. Also I would like to thank Dr. Arellano for his previous volunteer work in Jamaica and the fact that he is returning. I think it is wonderful when someone can share the gifts that they have with those in need, in this case his gift of dental skills and people skills

Initially, I thought commuting from Oakland to San Francisco to go to the dentist was absurd. However, I was thoroughly convinced after my first visit that traveling to the City was well worth it.

Dr. Arellano and his team are so appreciated! It's incredible to be able to receive thorough and quality care with him, and also be in the presence of the kind and genuine person that he is. In my few visits to the office, it is immediately clear that the goal is to make the client feel comfortable and taken care of. Instead of brushing off seemingly complicated elements of my own dental hygiene or jaw pain, Dr. Arellano takes the time to break down and explain what is happening in my body and what may have contributed to it. He takes a refreshingly preventative and strategic approach to dental health care.

Leo is a wonderful dentist. He always takes the time to explain everything thoroughly and what options are available. He enjoys his work, but also interacting with people. Mei in the office keeps everything running well. Most pleasant dentist office ever!

Dr. Leo has been my dentist since I was in college. That was 30+ years ago, my how time flies! His warm and caring personality is always comforting. He always knows how to anesthetize to alleviate pain, very professional, very experienced. All his staff, especially Mei, are also outstanding. They make me feel like part of their family.

Every visit to Dr. Arellano's office is a pleasure. From the welcoming reception staff to the hygienists to the great man himself, I feel completely cared for. His newsletters are both informative and entertaining. Dr. Arellano is not only extremely competent, but also very approachable as a person. He has a wonderful sense of humor and is truly interested in his patients' lives.

Leo is a superb dentist on many levels. Individually, he has a perfect balance of technical sophistication and warmth. He listens when you talk and takes you seriously. He is honest but never unthinking or unsympathetic. He presents you with alternatives and accommodates your response to the greatest (and healthiest!) degree possible. In addition, he must be an excellent colleague because his hires display the same values that he does. I don't know what filter he applies to applicants -- but I wish more medical offices used it! His entire office staff are comfortable and relaxing. A trip to this office is not at all "a trip to the dentist's office."
