After a couple of visits and my glowing reports to my wife about the quality and thoroughness of the work and the professionalism of the staff, I convinced her to switch dentists. Well she is completely enamored w/ his care (and she's a much bigger baby about going to the dentist than I am).
Can't recommend Dr. Ochev more highly.

My wife and I needed a new dentist here in San Rafael, and we were absolutely thrilled by the time we left Dr. Ochev's office. His staff were courteous and cheerful, the dental hygienist was gentle and very kind.
As my wife and I both went in at the same time, I had to wait a little while in the waiting room, but I was offered tea and reading material- it was very pleasant.
Dr. Ochev did an extremely thorough job with his tests and inspected far beyond teeth to get a good look at the lymph glands, jaw structure, gum structure, etc. The cleaning was equally thorough and we left feeling extremely happy to have met such a personable and down-to-earth dentist. Two thumbs (or five stars...) up!

My father was a dentist but is now deceased, so I definitely have an insider's perspective on dentistry. I spent a good amount of time looking for the right dentist and finally tried one who had a very high tech office, but I found that all the high end equipment is no substitute for a good dentist. He was rushed, sloppy and had bad "chair side" manner.
Dr. Ochev is the complete opposite. I'm so glad that I made the switch! Dr. Ochev is experienced, extremely gentle and makes high quality patient care his top priority. He takes the extra time to ensure the job is done right the first time. He even corrected the expensive errors made by the previous "flashy" dentist. I recommend him highly to anyone looking for top notch dental care.

I went to Dr. Ochev because I had a filling randomly fall out one day, leaving me with with a gaping hole in my mouth and about 1/3 tooth. Gross, I know but when I went into his office for my first appointment, I was greeted by a friendly front desk staff, the mold was taken for my crown almost immediately, a temporary was put in and I was back to work.
I only had to wait a week or so before returning for my permanent one. When I got there, I was offered an iPod, loaded with everything from Ah Ha to Zeppelin and a comfy set of Bose earphones to mute the noise from the drill which scares me, makes my palms sweat and makes my heart race. I was VERY impressed with Dr. Ochev's work. PAINLESS, SPEEDY and IMPECCABLE, not to mention, his office helped me choose a payment plan I could afford.
It is all the little touches, which constitutes the excellent customer service for which I am grateful.

Dr. Ochev is a terrific dentist and his staff is top notch. I'm a tough critic because I, like so many others, hate going to the dentist. It's one of those necessary things you gotta do but really would rather do almost anything else instead. After a horrible, pain filled experience with another dentist years ago, I'm simply afraid - afraid I'll feel that kind of pain again.
Bottom line, Dr. Ochev is a very, very skilled dentist. He's up to date on the latest in dentistry. His staff is fabulous. You as the patient are the priority. It's about making you comfortable; it's about taking care of you with kindness, professionalism and assurance. I still don't LOVE going to the dentist but they sure do make it easier.

I have been going to Dr. Ochev for many, many years. He is amazing! Not once have I felt any pain. I have gone to him for an array of procedures: bleaching, fillings, wisdom teeth extractions, and cleanings. He has always provided outstanding service--I would never even consider going to anyone else. In addition, Dr. Ochev got "Best in the Bay."
