In 2010, however, I was dissatisfied with his treatment in extracting my daughter's wisdom teeth. During the consultation, he barely looked at the x-rays, and spent most of the time chatting about non-medical issues. On the day of the extraction, his receptionist (his wife) told us that if the doctor deemed it necessary to apply grafts to speed up healing, it would cost $300 per graft. Dr. Kawahara had never mentioned that to us during the consultation. Dr. Kawahara apparently found it necessary to apply a graft---on a 17 year old girl. I was very unhappy that: (1) we were given no notice of the graft issue; and (2) no real explanation of why it was necessary--no graft was used on my teenage son four years previously. I would not go back to Dr. Kawahara.
