Patient Reviews

Dr. Yap and his staff are like no other dental provider I’ve ever been to. From the moment you walk in the door you feel as if you’re visiting family. Everyone is so kind and happy every time I visit. My grandmother, mother, and now I, have all been patients under Dr. Yap’s care.

He is wonderful and gentle and explains every detail to the patient before doing anything – something I appreciate greatly, since I’m a generally nervous patient. I cannot recommend his services highly enough!

Amber in Rancho Santa Margarita

We have been patients of Dr. Yap’s office for 10+ years. Dr. Yap’s office is amazing! The staff treats you like family, and go over and beyond care for your teeth and gums. I’m confident that Dr. Yap and Dr. Chen not only work to prevent gum disease, they are concerned for your overall health.

The hygienists and assistants are gentle, and thorough. Seri and Linda are patient, friendly, and fun with my kids (my 7 yo says he prefers going to the dentist over a haircut… he has willingly sat in that dental chair since he was 2!) Not only this, Terryl at the front office is super sweet and is willing to answer all your questions. I highly recommend this office!

Jessica N.

In my adult life, I have never found a dentist that I felt 100% satisfied with. Finally, that has all changed! It was so very pleasant going to this office. The staff is all so kind and personable. They truly took time to get to know me and explained everything they were doing so thoroughly.

These are honest, good people. Go, and this will be the place you’ll want to return to again and again.
