It has been YEARS since I have felt so good about a dentist and his office. The entire staff is so welcoming. The billing is done perfectly and Theresa is so accommodating. For example, I was urgently in need of a crown before moving up North. They got me in right away. They also had me in and out with a new crown within 2 hours. Dr. Kluss was a perfectionist when creating my tooth and he showed me every step of the way in its developing stages. I was so impressed. I will now drive down to San Juan Capistrano to continue going to Dr. Kluss. Thank you so much Absolute Smile, you are so true to your name.

I can’t say enough about this dental office, they are all awesome! From Thersa who greets you at reception, to Patty helping assist and making you feel comfortable, to Dr. Kluss who explains everything in perfect detail. I had a crown replacement and they had the technology to build my crown right then and there. No waiting for the lab to get my permanent! I will surely be telling everyone I know about this honest, and thorough practice!

(…)Dr. Kluss is very professional. I don’t usually need much work or anything, so he just comes in after the cleaning to look around and make sure all is well with my teeth. He filled a cavity for me once and was so super gentle that I didn’t need to be numbed.

I’ve never experienced “up selling” from anyone at the office. I love that! NEVER have I heard the words: “you could use braces”, “you could use whitening”, “you should get xyz done for a bunch of money”. Never ever have they tried any of that.

The office is in a great location. A nice little shopping center close to the freeway. And, it is superbly clean! The whole place is really nice and modern without a spec of dirt anywhere. I feel like they are extremely hygiene conscious.

I hope I can keep coming here for a long time!

I am usually not one to write a review but I am so impressed with Dr. Kluss. He has PAIN FREE injections and always makes me feel comfortable. He also has an amazing staff. His assistant Patty is so funny and makes you forget you are even in a dental chair! Thank You Absolute Smile!

Dr. Kluss has been my dentist for years. He is a great, conscientious dentist. I am confident he will do a great job on my teeth whenever I need work done on them. All the work in the past has been quality work. The office staff is friendly and makes me feel like family.

This place is awesome. They all know what they are talking about and they make you feel good about the treatment you might need. You know and feel that you are in goods hands just by talking to them.
Top notch over all experience.

James B. from Fallbrook, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Kluss for close to 18 years.  He and his entire staff have always made me feel as though i am there most important client. I would highly recommend Absolute Smile.

Lizzie M. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was sent to Dr. Kluss by another dentist to have a same day (…) crown. When I called I had a three day availability to get an appointment and they got me in the next day. When you walk in the office is clean and the staff is friendly.
Dr. Kluss is highly skilled as you can tell after watching him work. He is. It there to update you on unnecessary dental services. He does quality honest work. I am
So happy with my experience with Dr. Kluss and staff that I will move my entire family to this practice.

If you want to feel good about visiting the dentist I suggest you try Dr. Kluss. He and his entire staff are friendly, professional and take the time to answer questions in detail. I always have a pleasant visit.

My family & I live in the South Bay but we travel to see Dr. Kluss.
He does a great job & I love the staff at this office.
Thank you for your wonderful service over the years.

Sandee D. from Barnstable, MA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely hate the dentist ( nothing personal) that is until I found Dr Kluss and Company!! I actually look forward to seeing them.  He is the best!! the girls in the office and his assistants, and hygienist are awesome. I have had some very bad experiences with both dentist and office personnel. If you are looking for a dentist or unhappy with your present situation don’t hesitate to call them!

Arnold F. from Diamond Bar, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a dentist and what a great staff.  All so professional and knowledgeable. They make you feel like you are part of the family.  I needed a crown and usually it could take weeks and a couple of visits.  However, Dr. Kluss has this new amazing 3 D system that allows you to see exactly what is going on and makes the crown the same day.  It was amazing.  I went it and within one hour I had my new crown.  I highly recommend Dr. Kluss to anyone needing dental work.

Truly a fantastic experience….
Starting with Theresa and the logistics end of getting my appointment and payment handled with ease. There were no unnecessary hoops to jump through, nor any surprises at time of payment. She is a fantastic communicator, which is important to me because, I am someone who has avoided appointments with other dentists because of the lack in “people skills” by the receptionists in their offices, and if anything Theresa makes the opposite true, I now want to keep coming back.

Dr Kluss is undoubtedly a highly skilled professional, that is evident in the existing reviews. But I want to suggest to readers of this review, that the intangibles of his practice, like honesty and integrity as a professional, allow you to leave each and every appointment knowing that you were treated with dignity as a client, and had just experienced care by an individual with your health/well-being in mind, rather than their wallet.

Brian G. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


A dentist you can trust! Love coming here knowing that they will not recommend something that doesn’t need to be done unless it absolute has to. I have heard and experienced horror stories through my wife of other dentist doing the opposite. I would recommend them to anyone and everyone. I live in (a different city), and I drive here because of the people that work here and the experience that I get. I’m sure I could find a dentist local to (where I live) but ever since I have entered their door 9 years ago, I would never go anywhere else. And Theresa is so genuine and welcoming it makes me feel like I’m their only patient!!!

Autumn R. in Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Such an amazing experience going here! I’m not scared of the dentist but who really likes going lol
this was the first time going to a dentist in 5 years !! I’ve only gone to the place where I went as a child for teeth cleaning so I was a little nervous!
BUT I had no reason to be the staff here is fantastic !!! They take excellent care of you, from when you walk in the front desk lady is so nice! she is so personable and really wants to make your time here perfect!! So let’s talk about the cleaning!!! well who likes the scraping, not me haha but they have this amazing new tool that cuts the scraping down by at least 50% !!! It took her about 25 mins to clean my teeth with the new tool and I was very grateful!
Needless to say I will be coming here even if I have to drive far!

Great staff !!!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kluss for more than 12 years and have always received the same excellent service each and every time. Teresa and Dr. Kluss treat each patient like a welcome friend or family member. Your comfort level and concerns are always their first priority. And when my 84yr old father who was on blood thinners needed urgent dental care, Dr. Kluss was the ONLY dentist I would trust with his care. Thank you Dr. Kluss and Teresa for the excellent service, care and concern you show each and every patient!

Gray C. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience as always.  Dr Kluss and his staff are very kind and gentile.  Couldn’t ask for more in a family dentist!  Thanks guys!

Ronda T. from Sonora, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the most wonderful experience getting a crown. Yes, that sounds odd. It was painless, I watched Dr. Kluss create my new tooth before my eyes, AND I was out in an hour. Besides the fact this was an unexpected crown in which they were able to squeeze me in before we moved up North(…).

Dr. Kluss and the Absolute Smile team do a great job taking care of me and my teeth on every visit. The dental assistants and office staff are extremely personable and accommodating. I have had my dental work and checkups here for two years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

I love Dr. Kluss and staff!!!  Thersa always has a smile and makes me feel so welcome.  I would not go anywhere else but here.

Thank you Dr. Kluss and staff!!!

Barbara B. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


Collette took full mouth x-rays and cleaned my teeth.  She is very thorough, helpful  and friendly.
Dr. Kluss is very knowledgable and efficient.
Theresa is very friendly and efficient at the front desk.
It is the best dental office I have found in San Juan Capistrano area.
I appreciate all of you in this office.

We are very happy with our Dentist, Robert Kluss. Both my husband and I have had the best dental care. We seldom every wait in the outer office, all the staff are friendly and helpful and our teeth feel and look great! Anyone looking for a good Dentist will be glad after the first visit. We highly recommend Robert Kluss.

Dennis C. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who likes going to the dentist? I can actually say my visits to this office is very pleasant. The staff make you feel very welcomed. Teresa and Patty are great to work with and acknowledge you as a person rather a number. The Dr has extensive knowledge with up to date procedures and addresses your every concern. My wife hates going to the dentist but they are truly gentle for the procedure she went through. I wouldn’t chose any other dentist, you guys rock!


A graduate of USC School of Dentistry, Dr. Kluss earned his Bachelor of Science degree in Biochemistry at UC Davis. Shortly after completeing his graduate work in 1987, he started his dental practice in Mission Viejo. Dr. Kluss keeps up with the latest advancements in dental care through continuing education having undergone several hundred hours of additional training in all phases of dentistry. A participating member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry(one of the most prestigious organizations in cosmetic dentistry), he is also a current member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the Orange County Dental Society. Dr. Kluss incorporated Cerec technology into his practice six years ago and enjoys being able to make and deliver crowns in a single visit. He says, "My patients are amazed at the process and are excited to watch their crowns being made all say that they would never have a crown done the old way again!"
