Love Dr.Tamminen! I've been seeing him for the last two years. He is friendly, caring, and patient. I have always been afraid of dentists due to an inability to freeze properly. He has always been extremely understanding and thoughtful!

Dr. Tamminen (and this whole office, really!) are excellent with kids. After taking our 4yo daughter there for an urgent exam (her backmost molars are ground down and she developed an infection), I decided that I had to get my 9yo and 7yo sons there too. They were gentle and friendly with my daughter, letting her push all the buttons on the chair, etc - just letting her get a sense of the environment and feel like she was in control so that she would be more cooperative, and she was! And just today, in a cleaning and checkup for the two boys, my 9yo (who has sensory issues and cried before at the feelings of a tooth cleaning) - well, he was quite perfect in his cooperation and clearly completely comfortable. And my 7yo, after being able to sit nearby and watch his older brother's appointment, opened his mouth for a dental office for the first time ever! You'd have thought he was an old hand, he was so easygoing and cooperative about the whole thing. I am very happy with this office and definitely recommend them if you have kids that are skittish about the dentist. They take their time making the kids comfortable.

I did the wisdom teeth removal by Dr. Tamminen. I asked several family dental clinics but they can't conduct the surgery for me. So in the end, I went to TCL Dental Care, because there are no reviews on google map for this clinic. But it turned out Dr. Tamminen is very professional and skillful. Within an hour, he did the surgery for me. And I felt no pain and no sleepy afterwards. If you know you have wisdom teeth problem when checking your teeth x-ray, probably you should go to dentist around age 16-18. I would recommend this for wisdom teeth removal based on my experience.
