    Everyone so nice. Everything explained so well and in a way that I completely got. Low-key and relaxed office that puts you at ease. And it's nice to have windows to look out of. I've been looking for a permanent dentist since Dr. Kirby retired a few years ago and I'm thrilled with Dr. Cappelen ~ and plan on staying put.

    Finally! After trying for years to find a good dentist, who actually listens and pays attention to your teeth problems, explains the procedures, and is as professional as it gets with her work, i found her!! Look no further! She will now be our family dentist for a long, long time! Great staff too, of course!!

    Love visiting Dr. Cappelen's office. I never thought that having cavities drilled could be a relaxed, relatively painless experience, but she and her friendly staff managed just that. Thank you!

    If you are like most, going to the dentist is a day I'd rather avoid altogether. With DMD Dipa Cappelen and her well trained assistants in San Rafael my views have changed 100%. Together they have taken already exceptional care to a higher level. The level of COVID-19 preparedness impressed me in my last to visits. Honestly, I feel so relaxed, that I'm nearly asleep while they work. That is from someone who avoided dentist care for too much of my life, I am really comfortable with all the care. In the past I have had a couple of emergency procedures. She has fitted me in right away.
