Excellent service. Not overly pleased with past work done here in the past but Dr Chang is the best. Great at explaining everything. She did a difficult molar extraction with minimum discomfort.

Great service. Made an appointment from bad tooth pain and got in for service on the same day. Called the general number and the customer service agent was extremely nice and went out of her way to help me. When I came into the office everyone was really nice and so was the dentist and dental assistants. Just a great expierence for someone like me who dreads going to the dentist. Also kudos to the office manager, she is super nice!

I have to admit my first experience this place was not that great because they canceled my surgery the day before and I was all prepared. I have really bad anxiety when I go to the end dentist and this just added to my frustrations. But the second time around I was happy that they worked with me because I was originally quoted one price and upon return I was quoted something that was almost double my original quote. I was told that it was due to management change. After expressing my frustrations the office manager and the oral surgeon managed to work with me and got me a much more reasonable price agreed on with my extractions. So since I allowed for Redemption from my first visit that I wasn't very happy with I was able to be more satisfied the second time around.

Everyone was extremely kind and very concerned about keeping me as pain-free as possible. As someone who is usually afraid of going to the dentist, I can definitely recommend the all-woman office of Gentle Dental in Mission Viejo.

Dr. Chang did excellent work replacing 2 veneers on my front teeth which is obviously very important! She was gentle and efficient. She did some fillings today and I will be back to get rest of my work done. Staff is more than helpful and Sandra even more so.
