I was referred to Dr. Patel by my boss at work and I am so thankful to have found a dentist that I actually enjoy going to! The entire office is so warm, friendly, and knowledgeable. I’ve had multiple root canals/crowns and they made the entire experience PAINLESS. Super organized, helpful with insurance info, and all around awesome people. Go see them, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Patel and his staff are truly outstanding. I came in after a very, very long time of not seeing a dentist. Needless to say, I’ve needed quite a bit of work to get back on track. Although I was embarrassed about letting things go for such a long time, Dr. Patel was extremely kind and took a great deal of time to discuss treatment options with me. Not only is he extremely knowledgeable, he’s also very practical and personable. This rare combination really gives him an edge and makes visits pleasant. His staff is equally competent and personable. I could not recommend him and his practice more highly. A few appointments in, I’m almost on a regular maintenance track again and my teeth look terrific!

Excellent dentist. He is nice, knows what he’s doing, and you can trust him! So glad to finally have found him!

I am fairly new to the area of Aliso Viejo so i have been looking for a good dentist for a few months now.  I visited Aliso Smiles yesterday and i was quite happy with the service that was provided.  My appointment was at 1 pm and i was in to see the doctor at 1:10 which is about the time i finished writing all the patient information paperwork.  Dr.  Patel is a great dentist,  he took the time to explain everything in detail and i was really happy with the attention i received during the routine cleaning.  overall, the staff was friendly, the doctor was competent and it was a really good experience.

My entire family utilizes Aliso Smles. We actually drive from San Diego to see Dr. Patel because I believe he is the best. He is thorough, kind, caring and his staff, especially Diane is the best! My son is 3 and he loves the treasure chest of prizes after his visit. I can say this is a top notch experience and I truly appreciate the whole office. Always a pleasant experience.

If you dread going to the dentist, if you have had a bad dentist before, even if you are just looking for a new dentist, then you have found the right place. You will be very impressed with Dr. Patel and the team’s professionalism, knowledge, and kindness. I am actually looking forward to going in to get my teeth filled. My wife has been going here for years and every time she goes she comes glowing with excitement from how nice everyone is at Aliso Smiles. They are great on all aspects including pricing. I highly recommend Aliso Smiles.

My first visit was great.  I had to find a new dentist quickly because I had broken a tooth and they accommodated me.  I’ve been looking for another dentist since I wasn’t too fond of the one I found earlier and I don’t normally switch provider unless I have to.  I would say that the staff are great, friendly, and professional.  The office is clean, modern, high-tech, and inviting.  Dr. Patel is down to earth and did a thorough job and explained to me what happened with my tooth.  He also informed me some of the things he noticed with my other teeth.  I will definitely stay with this group for my dental needs.  I would definitely highly recommend Aliso Viejo Smiles to anyone looking for a great dental office.

I have been going to the same dentist for over 25 years- but with his schedule changing, it was becoming too hard to try and take of time from work to schedule appointments with him.  Enter Aliso Smiles- I had heard awesome things about them and my experience last night did not disappoint.  I love the fact that they are open late one night a week as it allowed me to make an appointment after work without the hassle of getting time off approved.  I was a little nervous just because I really do love my past dentist and didn’t know what to expect.  Well- I was blown away- The entire staff, from the front desk, to Dr. Patel and Cindy- everyone was so nice and made me feel great.  I had xrays first and Cindy was awesome explaining everything to me, then Dr. Patel came over and introduced himself and went over my xrays- he has a great bedside manner and made me feel extremely comfortable.  The cleaning was SO nice- I love having my teeth cleaned and they used a totally different technique that was 100 times faster than my last dentist.  The entire appointment less than an hour and I left with super clean and polished teeth.  I cannot wait to go back in June- I HIGHLY recommend going to see Dr. Patel! Both my fiancé and I love him and his entire staff!

I’ve been going here for a few years now, and I love the service that I have received each time. Dr. Patel is fabulous and easy going, and his staff is a treat to see/work with.
They have TVs to entertain you at each station while you wait or have work done, and also the little touches like the sunglasses they provide so that you aren’t blinded underneath the lamp while they work on you are much appreciated. Dr. Patel is always thorough and quick – my biyearly cleaning took less than thirty minutes, and I felt well cared for.

Dr. Patel and his office Staff (Gina and Jenna) are absolutely amazing!! i have never been to a more caring Dentist or Dentist Office before and i would highly recommend them to anyone.. in fact i have recommended them to my BF and numerous co-workers to date. The skill and knowledge Dr. Patel has is great and he makes sure you know as much as he does about your own mouth, which is very refreshing because most barley even speak to you, let alone go above and beyond to explain. The technology and general office environment are also worth noting as the Dr. does everything he can to stay on top of the most recent advances, and the office is inviting and clean. He is ultra gentle and very sensitive to how you are feeling while in his chair/office. If you ever have any questions or issues with dentists, i urge you to come and give Aliso Smiles and Dr. Patel a chance and see if you don’t turn into a believer too! 🙂 Thanks guys, looking forward to my check up this month!!

This is bar none the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist. Dr Patel is kind, fun, puts you at ease within a second of meeting him. The atmosphere of the whole office is serene and warm. The dental hygienist Cindy is fabulous to work with as well. The receptionist is kind and inviting too. Can’t say enough the overall relief and happiness I feel at having found such a great dentistry team.

I have been seeing Dr. Patel and his staff for 6 years now. I admit I’m one of those extremely anxious patients that when dealing with me you really have to go that extra mile. Dr. Patel and his friendly staff have done that. With each appointment I have to say I’ve gotten so much better and frankly that’s due to how caring and understanding all there are, each time they see me. They are the best and have won my trust.

Ty P. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our experience at Aliso Smiles was great! The staff is super friendly and welcoming. They called us back immediately and attended is right away. Dr. Patel was really great with my daughters. He explained everything well and also told is what to expect next time. We were very happy with our visit!

Katee D. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


A comfortable office with very friendly and gentle staff in the back. Dr. Patel is a great dentist and very personal. Hard to find a dentist that cares for your mouth as much as you do! Comfortable prices as well. Had my teeth cleaned recently and it went so well. Found my dentist – and i travel 45 minutes to see him!

Dr is great and the staff is amazing. I use to be scared of the dentist but after going here … I’m good!!!!! Awesome office.

Kevin Arlic (Source: Google)


Dr. Patel and his staff make the experience of going to the dentist actually enjoyable. He has a very good bedside manner, in which he makes me feel at ease that I am in capable hands. He always explains what is going on with my teeth and how I should work to avoid making them worse between visits. The T.Vs in the rooms are also a great distraction while Dr. Patel fixes my pearly whites.

I would highly recommend Aliso Smiles to anyone that is looking for a dentist that they don’t dread.

Kevin W. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down my favorite dentist I’ve ever been to.  Took a couple years off between cleanings and with a new insurance policy I was looking for anyone to help start taking care of my teeth again.  Read the reviews and when I called to schedule my first appt.. Diane in the office was super nice and upfront with all new patient information.  

Dr. Patel was nothing short of amazing.  I ended up needing a lot of work.  Long story short since day one he has been completely honest, knowledgeable, very professional, and a genuinely nice person.  Will continue to get my teeth cleaned here and will recommend anyone here looking for an awesome dentist!

Andrew M. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Your search is over. Dr. Patel is your new dentist. Unbelievably professional while also being vulnerable and comfortable.The friendly office staff are your new best friends who will keep you updated at every turn! Honestly, I’ve had (very extensive) work done here in the last 6 months (don’t wait 6+ years to go to the dentist), and EVERY SINGLE visit was divine. I hate pain, and he always made sure I was fully physically separated from it. Two root canals that were seamless and having me play soccer the next day! He was even flexible with my busy work hours to make it happen. Seriously, you’d be doing yourself a disservice if you don’t go there at least once to experience for yourself! DO IT. Literally, right this second . . . before eating more candy . . . .

I have had the worst experience with dentists in the past. Dr. Patel, I am happy to say is the best dentist I have ever been to. He makes sure you are 100% comfortable and that you understand things before he proceeds with anything.

The results of the work I needed has been phenomenal. My smile looks so much better! 😀

I have to say I was so scared of the dentist because of past procedures I had done and have gone wrong. Dr Patel makes me enjoy going to the dentist, I KNOW I’m in good hands when I sit in that chair.

The staff is equally amazing! Very kind and attentive.

Thanks Aliso Smiles!

The whole business is amazing from the receptionist to the Dentist. Dr Patel has a great sense of humor & knows his way around a drill. Our whole family loves this practice. Always a pleasure going in for my cleanings.

Julie P. from Kirkland, WA (Source: Yelp)


New to the area, I chose to get a dental cleaning at Dr. Patel’s office based on the great reviews I had read and was not disappointed. The staff was excellent – friendly and knowledgeable. Dr. Patel was very nice and took the time to carefully explain everything to me and listened to my questions. I felt very comfortable during my visit and would recommend Aliso Smiles to anyone looking for reasonably priced dental care from friendly, caring professionals.

Phenomenal service. The doctor and staff, greet and treat me as a family member. the equipment is leading edge, including a camera that captures images as the basis for discussion.

Jeremy Gomez (Source: Google)


Dr Patel is incredible and takes good care of me whenever I go in. The times I have had to get some serious drilling done, Dr Patel has made sure I was not in any pain.
He is well worth the drive I take from Upland to Aliso Viejo to see him.

Jason R. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental office ever!  Every dental or medical office I have been to, I have to wait in the waiting room, which I hate, because I feel I made an appointment to be seen at a certain time.  Well, at Dr. Patel’s office, you are seen at your appointed time.  Dr. Patel and his staff are not only punctual, but professional and pleasant and personable and friendly.  They make you feel comfortable and welcome.  

Dr. Patel is so great at explaining everything that was going on in my mouth.  He showed me detailed pictures and blown up digital x-rays on the monitor, so there was no question in my mind what he was describing to me.  He is so patient and obviously intelligent.  And he is not pushy about getting all the work done at once, I can take my time, which suits me financially.

Dr. Patel is the go to dentist!

Marci M. from La Verne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist has never been something I have looked forward to, until now. Dr. Patel and the staff at Aliso Smiles have made these two dreadful times of year easy (and yes, maybe even a little enjoyable). The equipment is new and high tech, the office is clean and modern, and the personal TV’s make my appointment go by even faster. I am glad I found Aliso Smiles.

Elizabeth E. from Laguna Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Patel since early 2011 and it is always a pleasure.  Now when can someone really say that about going to the dentist?  His staff is great, and he is always friendly and cares about me and the health of my teeth.  I would highly recommend him to anyone.

By far, Dr. Patel is my favorite dentist today and I have recommended him to family & friends. Every procedure he’s done, he has explained why it’s necessary, the benefits, the downside if I don’t, and any other options available.

Dr. Patel and his staff are fantastic, very friendly, and have made me feel comfortable with being there.

Ben K. from Cleveland, OH (Source: Yelp)


Excellent Dentist!  I am the typical guy who hadn’t been to the dentist in way too long and was reluctant to go for many reasons.  One of which the “trouble” I would be in with the dentist.  Dr. Patel was great at making you comfortable and explaining what I needed to do to get my teeth back in proper order and what I needed to do to prevent another “relapse” to neglecting my teeth.  

Dr.  Patel did an excellent job and I will definitely continue to get my dental care at Aliso smiles!

Chelsea W. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and all of his staff are so wonderful! I have been going to Dr. Patel for years. He is extremely patient, understanding, efficient, and professional. He is not only our family dentist for myself and my young son, but I have also referred friends to him who all have the same experience. They love him! I would recommend him to everyone.

Laura A. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to Dr. Patel’s office yesterday and LOVED him and his staff.  Nice, clean, and up to date office.  All dental chairs have their own TV.  He was very friendly and knowledgeable – education IS the best preventative measure.  His dental assistant, Melanie, was gentle and cheerful.  The front office assistant, Diana, was extremely helpful; she was kind enough to email me all my paperwork prior to my appointment, that way I could just bring it in with me.  What I also liked was how high tech their appointment reminders are.  You’ll get email reminders asking if you need to reschedule your appointment and or asking you to confirm it.  Etc, etc, etc.  What can I say?  I was impressed.

Dr. Patel and the staff at Aliso Smiles are amazing. I’ve been going here for a number of years and I can’t say enough good things about them. Dr. Patel is a one of a kind dentist. He listens to all concerns and questions and answers everything while putting your fears to rest. The state of the art of equipment is amazing! If you are looking for a new dentist, check out Aliso Smiles.

I’ve already recommended Dr. Patel to so many friends and family—such a great dentist and a wonderful person too! Plus, their staff is incredible! I’m not quite sure how Diana manages to stay so organized and friendly, but she’s sure to make your life a little easier whenever you step in the office. Thanks, guys!

Absolutely fantastic experience. Dr. Sajit Patel takes a very personal interest in every patient case, and this shows in the fact that he takes the time and patience to explain everything very clearly to his patients. He and his staff are always very helpful and together they try to make every visit more pleasant than the last one. I feel very lucky and blessed to have a dentist like Dr. Sajit Patel looking out for my dental health. Thank you so much, Sajit !!

You will find no better dentist in Aliso Viejo or all of Orange County, CA – which is an extremely competitive environment for top quality dentists. (who wouldn’t want to practice their science in such a beautiful place?) Not only is Dr. Patel a true dental professional, he is one of the nicest doctors I have ever encountered. His down to earth approach to dentistry flows through his entire staff. They are all kind and professional and know how to put you at ease as you sit with your mouth wide open as sharp instruments gently clean what your everyday toothbrush misses. Dr. Patel takes the time to talk with you, not just about your teeth, but about you. He wants to not just be the white coat (he doesn’t wear one) who cleans your teeth, but the trusted professional you can turn to when your teeth needs some TLC. Don’t waste your time being up sold by other dentists as you sit in the dental chair of mercy. Go see Dr. Patel, your teeth will feel as they have chomped their way to a dental spa.

Love my time with Dr. Patel. He is very informative and helps me make informed decisions based on the work I need completed.


To Dr. Patel, patient satisfaction is paramount. He continues to advance his skills, taking courses that allow him to remain on the cutting edge of innovative treatment options and new technologies. An interest in dentistry has been longstanding for Dr. Patel, who was inspired by his uncle, who was a dentist with extremely high standards of patient care. He has always enjoyed the artistic component involved in dentistry, and remains interested in the daily challenges that come from providing a valuable service to our community. Dr. Patel helps patients enjoy healthy, beautiful smiles, while ensuring positive dental experiences. We understand that there are those who avoid seeing the dentist due to anxiety. One of our missions is to change the way patients experience dental care. Many of our patients actually look forward to their visits! Outside of the office, Dr. Patel is committed to spending time with his family. He enjoys time outdoors in the beautiful Southern California sunshine, learning golf, or playing tennis or soccer. He also enjoys reading.
