My kids have seen Dr. Aka for close to 14 years and our experience has always been positive. The entire staff, from the reception desk ladies to the hygienists and Dr. Aka himself, is very welcoming and friendly. I don't recall my kids ever coming away from a dental visit saying anything negative about their time in the dental chair. Dr. Aka is very personable, like a close friend or great next door neighbor. The office location is convenient and we are able to get appointments that are convenient for us.
My boys have seen Dr. Aka since we moved here 11 years ago. He is a wonderful kind hearted Dentist. I have a fear of dental offices and he made me feel right at home. My boys enjoy going for check ups. We are so lucky to have found such a wonderful dentist.
My son was 4 when he started seeing Dr. Aka and he wasn't the most cooperative child to put it mildly. He can be very stubborn when he doesn't want to do something. Dr. Aka's stuff really knows how to soothe and pacify a child. My son now loves checking his teeth and he is looking forward to a little toy he always receives there. When we had to have a bit of more work done on his teeth, we tried another place, but they weren't even able to make him lie quietly while they were looking at his teeth. So we went back to Dr. Aka and everything went just perfectly. They really know how to work with kids and they are wonderful people.
When we moved here over 10 years ago our daughter was a toddler. I took her to meet 3 different pediatric dentists in our immediate vicinity and Dr. Aka's office was the only one in which she seemed to be comfortable. We love Dr. Aka and all of his staff. Each person we have encountered has been so kind and caring. And patient! Dr. Aka and our hygienist Celeste do a great job with our daughter's exam/cleaning which was especially difficult when she was a very scared toddler/preschooler. When we needed referrals for orthodontia and oral surgery Dr. Aka sent us to equally kind and competent people. We wouldn't even think about going elsewhere because they are the best and we are very happy to have found them. I highly recommend Dr. Aka's practice.
Great dentist and office! Both of my sons have been patients of Dr. Aka and his wonderful staff for nearly 10 years. While many don't like going to see the dentist (myself included), they actually enjoy their bi-annual visits. I highly recommend Plateau Dentistry for Children for pediatric dental care.
