My experience with Dr. Bembey has been great… She explains everything that needs to done and makes sure you understand ... She cares about your overall well-being…. Her assistants also made sure I was comfortable and if I needed anything…. I am very happy with the dental work that has been done…. I have already passed on her information to a friend for her future dental work…
I was referred to Dr. Bembey by Dr. Michael Klein, a trusted dentist in Encinitas. Upon entering the office of Dr. Bembey/Dr. Yokoyama I immediately felt relaxed by the atmosphere and the Hawaiian music, as well as the very kind and friendly staff.
As soon as I met Dr. Bembey, I instinctively knew I was (finally) in the right place with the best Doctor. She performed a very comprehensive exam before gently walking me through the treatment plan. It's important to note I had seen three different Periodontists prior to being referred to Dr. Bembey, one of which who was highly rated for their use of the LANAP Laser gum surgery technique, however they did not even mention the LANAP and only wanted to perform very invasive gum flap surgery. I left that office in tears. As Dr. Bembey walked me through her treatment plan, addressing my very advanced periodontal disease, I was overjoyed to discover she would be using the LANAP Laser surgery. I went to the consultation trusting Dr. Kleins recommendation but had no idea she was a licensed LANAP Periodontist. For the first time in years I felt a sense of relief and hope knowing I was in great hands.
I began the first of two laser surgeries on May 27th and completed them on 6/8, along with two front teeth extractions and bone grafting in that area. Unfortunately, I lost those two teeth as a result of not staying on top of my periodontal gum care for far too long because I had developed severe dental trauma. Had I known Dr. Bembey 10 years prior, I'm certain I wouldn't have lost my teeth, however, I am profoundly grateful to know her now.
On the day of my first procedure I was admittedly very nervous. Dr. Bembey is perhaps the most patient Doctor I've ever known. She gave me all the time I needed to settle in, walking me through everything with so much care and attentiveness. Throughout the procedure she paused to check in with me, and as a result I had zero anxiety during the entire procedure. I expected to go home and have some pain but for the most part there is no pain associated with the LANAP laser surgery. It is actually rather mind blowing how easy and pain free the procedure and healing is. Returning ten days later to complete the LANAP and teeth extractions even surprised me as I was not nervous at all. This procedure was longer and more extensive because of the teeth extractions but again Dr. Bembey was absolutely amazing in creating the most caring, safe environment, which included her checking on me hours later when I was home.
As of today, I had my stitches removed and I'm all clear until my next cleaning in three months. I've never felt more positive about my health, knowing the very dangerous bacteria, infection and disease has finally been removed from my gums, no longer posing dangerous risks to other organs and my overall health.
Thank you, Dr, Bembey - from the bottom of my heart - for your impeccable care, knowledge, and treatment, for which my health is already, and will continue to be, vastly improved.
I had some wisdom teeth removed followed by oral surgery to repair my gums and Dr Yokoyama and his staff are excellent. These guys are awesome, everyone in his office is personable and professional and provide amazing care. I highly recommend Dr Yokoyama for your dental needs.
Dr. Yokoyama is an expert! He quickly and efficiently has helped me many times! I recently visited my dentist, who is very good, but we couldn't determine the source of my pain! Dr. Yokoyama figured it out in 10 minutes or less! He treated me, and I feel much. much better! I highly recommend him for all dental needs!
Late last year I had a visit with Dr. Yokoyama for gum grafting. Procedure was easier than having a cavity filled. Today, I had my regular check-up with my dentist, and he was blown away at how great the area looked. He said it was the best he has seen in a long time. Highly recommend him and his wonderful staff.
I recently visited Dr. Yokoyama to have my night guard remade. He came highly recommended by my friend and neighbor who is also a dentist. I was a dental hygienist for 20 years 15 years ago, so I have spent my life around dentists.
Dr. Yokoyama and his staff are super warm and friendly but mostly knowledgeable. I've had several health issues over the years and no one could actually pinpoint why it was happening. Not only did Dr. Yokoyama tie it all together but 2 days later he did corrective surgery to repair a problem I've had since I was little. He was very professional, kind, and compassionate and has called several times to check in with me.
I highly recommend this office for your dental needs!
I am an orthodontist and Dr. Yokoyama is the only periodontist in San Diego I would consider sending my patients to. He is without question the very best.

Dr. Yokoyama did an outstanding job on my gum graft procedure. My dental hygienist tried to guess which gum was grafted and she couldn’t because Dr. Y did such a great job. Highly recommend him and his considerate team.
I went to Dr Yokoyama yesterday for the first time. He was kind, warm, friendly and made me feel as comfortable as one can feel in a dentist chair. He was more thorough than the previous periodontist that i went to and I felt in good hands. His staff was also great. I will be happy to refer to him!
As a general dentist, I have referred patients to Dr Yokoyama for the last 25 years and have been pleased with the exceptional care he has given my patients. So, when I needed a gingival graft and a crown lengthening procedure, I knew exactly which periodontist to entrust with my personal care. The procedures were painless and the post operative discomfort was minimal. Dr. Yokoyama is an excellent clinician and his staff is extremely professional.
