Torrance Dentist - Richard T. Nishikawa DDS - Dental Care Torrance, CA 90505

Dear New Patient

A very warm welcome to you. The entire team would like to thank you for selecting our office to care for your dental needs.

Our goals are to provide each patient with the highest quality dental care in a gentle, efficient & pleasant manner and strongly encourage prevention of future dental problems.

Normally, the first visit will include an initial interview with the doctor to discuss your dental goals, a very thorough examination & a consultation. To assist with your diagnosis & treatment planning, we may also take any necessary x-rays, a series of dental photographs & possibly study model impressions. If needed you may need to be scheduled for a 2nd appointment for treatment presentation & further discuss options. At that time treatment costs will be discussed & any financial arrangements can be made with Cheryel. Please note the $50 Gift Card attached to this letter. Please feel free to use it on your 1st visit or for a future visit.

In preparation for your visit, please download the two (2) New Patient forms from this website, please complete both sides of each patient information & the health history questionnaire & bring it with you to your first visit. If you have dental insurance, please bring any information you have concerning your benefits. We will do our best to assist  you in receiving any benefits available from your insurance plan.

Please, do not hesitate to call our office at your convenience Cheryel will be happy to help. Our team is looking forward to meeting you.

What Our Clients Say About Us

  • "I woke up with a pain in my face that i could not ignore. I knew it was time for a visit. To my surprise, my Dentist did not call me back. I'm actually glad he didn't. I was given another dentist by referral so i decided to call. My visit was amazing. Friendly staff. Clean office. Inviting environment. And most importantly i left feeling excited to go back. All my fears of the dentist were gone. I suddenly had this feeling of everything is going to be okay and the dentist is not bad after all. I can't thank everyone here enough for making my visit not only satisfying but a good one!! You are awesome and i will refer you to all of my friends and family. Thanks again!!!"

  • "Best dentist anywhere! His staff is very nice and thorough. My teeth always feel clean and wonderful after a visit. He has the latest technology and does an exceptional job! I would and have recommended Dr. Nishikawa! He is an amazing dentist!"
    Ariel A. - Gardena, CA 12/18/2015
  • "Dr Nishikawa and his staff are so warm and welcoming. I Have been coming here for close to 10 years now. Everything is explained to me so I fully understand the procedure. I've seen his son, as well, and from what I experienced with him, the apple doesn't fall to far from the tree. His daughter in law, Daryn's wife, Dr. Camille is my children's favorite. My son had such a horrendous experience in another office and with Camille's gentle, caring nature he is always excited to see her. I would highly recommend this family practice to friends and family...and I have!"
    Annie J. - Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA
  • "Dr. Nishikawa and his whole staff are hands down the best. The paperwork was taken care of easily and quickly. As one who doesn't like dentists in general, Dr. Nishikawa is very gentle and easy going and makes his patients feel comfortable.
    Definitely would refer him!"
