Went to Apple Dental today as a referral from my insurance and received excellent service!  The receptionist and dental assistant were VERY nice.  Dr.Min did a deep cleaning on my teeth with no numbing, very gentle hands. He explained what needed to be done to my teeth and maintenance without being pushy and trying to sell me extra services.  He also gave me a little education and was very sincere. Would highly recommend! I’ll be back in 6 months!

I’m surprised this place doesn’t have many good reviews. I recently started coming here last month and I have been very satisfied with my treatment. The dentist is great! He takes the time to explain the procedure and is very thorough with his work. He’s also friendly ! Plus his receptionist is super welcoming and Helpful overall my experience here has been great and I would recommend this place to others looking for a dentist near by.

People seem to put off needed dental work, because of bad experiences.  Don’t put it off any longer. You must come to Dr. Derek Min at Apple Dental.  Such a comfort to find a Dentist that really cares about you and your teeth. Dr. Min is very humble, polite, friendly, gentle, and explains everything in simple terms. He tells you what to expect during procedures.  He is a perfectionist and does an excellent job. He will be OUR DENTIST FOREVER!  My Husband and I are very satisfied and happy we found a dentist who really cares. Jennie and Angel Dockter.

I just love love love Apple Dental.  Dr Derek Min is upfront and knows exactly what he is doing. You will never think twice of going to your  dental visits again Dr Min is gentle . I’ve been going to Dr. Min’s dental office for years. Receptionist and assistants are very helpful and sweet.  I would definitely recommend Apple Dental. Thanks Dr. Min. Silvia Martinez.

I’ve had my share of bad experiences with several dentist offices in the SoCal area, and must say Apple Dental has restored my trust in a dentist. At my first visit I was surprised at how attentive Dr. Min was. He took the time to explain what my issues were and what our options would be. He even took time to go over basic dental hygiene techniques. And believe me, you may think you are brushing correctly but you’re not! He’s also pretty punctual and so far I’ve never waited more than 10 minutes past my appointment time. The dental assistant is professional and her and the Dr. work well together. The receptionist is always friendly and willing to go above and beyond what she has to do. She will greet you by name and always asks how you are doing. Overall, this place is amazing. You always leave with your mouth in great condition and the knowledge that whatever you needed was taken care of. If you’re unsure about coming here, just do it! You will not regret it.

First time at Apple Dental I’m a very nervous person. I don’t like to go to the dentist. Dr. Min was very nice and kind to me he let me know he wouldn’t hurt me and not I will feel pain. Wow was I shocked felt no pain when he injected me and felt nothing at all. The nurse Mari was very kind. Definitely I would I come back and bring my family and friends. Thank you Dr. Min and staff  Julia G.

Mary F. from La Verne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never had a good experience at any dental office. With that said, finding the right dentist that cares and has patience for dental fearing people like myself is extremely important. Dr. Minn and his staff made my first visit at Apple Dental extremely smooth, welcoming, and painless. I actually left hugging Dr. Minn, great dentist and such a nice kind human being! If your not local, this dentist office is definitely worth the drive!!! The staff are a rare find, genuinely warm caring people. Highly recommend!!

Anisa B. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to see Dr. Min since I was 10 years old! He is INCREDIBLY gentle and is always straight forward with you. Elvie and Crystal are the sweetest and make sure I am aware that I have an appointment coming up! Dr. Min and his staff are patient with children and know how to sooth them. I LOVE LOVE LOVE APPLE DENTAL!

like most people i absolutely hate going to the dentist but here dr.min took away all my fear and anxiety of going to the dentist. Great customer service and friendly receptionist. Didn’t overcharge or charge me for something i did not need. This dental office will assist you in making a trip to the dental office something you no longer dread but look forward to.

Esme R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My client and I are very happy with Apple dental!  I am a caregiver for an elder woman and she was nervous to go into a dentists office. I told her I could do some research on yelp for her.  After looking through a list of dentists around our area Apple dental was the best reviewed. I also checked her assigned dentist and it had terrible reviews.  We went ahead and switched her from her assigned dentist to Apple Dental. We went in a couple weeks later and had to fill out some paperwork but as soon as dr min  started with her he was asking questions about her health to make sure everything was good before starting the cleaning. And my client and I really appreciated that. Once he started cleaning the teeth he took his time. When finished my client was very pleased. She told me doctor min was being very careful as she came out of the office smiling. The secretary is very knowledgeable and very nice. I heard her offering water/ soda to the other patients while they where waiting and that showed a lot of professionalism. We will be coming back soon. Thanks apple dental for the great experience!

Nicole C. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Apple dental has the best staff.I’ve been going for a few months and I didn’t have knowledge on how my insurance works and the girls helped me and answered any questions I had. They all are so friendly and nice. I also couldn’t pay for some of the work and they set up payment plans. Dr. Min was extremely patient and gentle with shots. I often fear dentist but I had a pleasant and painless experience with this one.

Sugey J. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I a very shock that this place does not have great reviews?? I have had nothing but great experiences here. The doctor is very honest and to the point the girls are very helpful and nice.
If I could I would give them 10 stars, I had a horror experience before coming here and they made me feel at easy again where I can trust a dentist. Don’t be fool by this other reviews I had this dentist for the past years and had to change due to my insurance benefits but glad I am once aboard again!!

Leslie R. from Manhattan, New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Min is a fantastic dentist, I have been coming to him since I was 3 years old and I’m now 20. Even after moving out of Azusa years ago, we continue to go to Apple Dental due to their incredible patient care. I have never had anything but a great experience here, Dr. Min is very professional, kind to patients and has always made sure my teeth were healthy. I highly recommend seeing Dr. Min and his staff at Apple Dental for an exceptional dental care experience.

Dr. Min is so great…i’ve been his patient since i was 3 years old i will never switch. he’s very gentle and cares about his patients comfort. He’s very honest and never tells me to do things i don’t need. He doesn’t over charge and his work is nothing but the best. Overall, if you need something done or need a good dental office, this is the place.

Jessie Saenz (Source: Google)


This dental office is by far the best one I’ve been to my whole life. As a fearful patient, I was looking for a kind dentist and caring staff. Apple dental has it all. They take there time with you and Dr. Min will give you all the time you need. And he will make sure throughout any procedure you receive that you are comfortable. The office is small and clean. And staff are always professional but personable. The waiting room has interesting magazines and their bathroom is clean. My brother convinced me to see Dr. min 6 years ago after avoiding the dentist for more then 10 years. But since then, I go to every check-up and now my husband and son go there. I’m happy that when I finally decided to take care of my oral health, that I went to such a wonderful place. Thanks Apple Dental, see you in 6 months 🙂

Walter C. from Diamond Bar, CA (Source: Yelp)


The professional service rendered by Dr. Derek Min has been excellent. Compared with other dentists I have visited in the past, Dr. Derek Min excels in good quality dental service, honesty and his passion to ensure your total satisfaction.

Kristy M. from Glendora, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to Apple today…..the doctor & staff were so at-tentative, caring & professional but my number 1 compliment definitely goes to the caring doctor. He knew I didn’t have alot of money & worked with me once again (like he ALWAYS does) & saved me over $250.00!!! I couldn’t believe it! No other dentist that I have ever went to was willing to work with me regarding price. This doctor is more concerned about your overall well being than the “almighty dollar”! I’ve been with Apple for over 10 years & will NEVER go to another dentist. Ever….

Shirley S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


More than a five-star experience. I came here on the recommendation of a very satisfied patient of Dr. Min. So very happy to have found this place. Sandra at the front desk is sweet, kind and professional. The doctor’s chair-side manner is gentle and oh so calming. I actually overheard him successfully easing the fears of a very nervous child in the next room. SOLD!!! I am convinced that he won’t recommend unnecessary procedures – AND I felt absolutely no pain or discomfort from the numbing injection to the filling and the placement of my temporary crown. Although I have no fear of dentists, I would highly recommend him to those of you who have a fear of dentists. I am a very, very happy patient. Will keep you updated.

(Translated by Google) I thank Dr. Min for saving my tooth because if I went to another office they would not give me the decision to take off or do a nerve treatments but with my Dr. Min I saved my tooth without doing expensive treatments. (Original) Le doy gracias a Dr. Min por salvado mi diente porque si fuera a otra oficina no me ubieran dado la decisión de quitarme o hacerme un tratamientos de nervio pero con mi Dr. Min me salvo mi diente sin hacer tratamientos caros.

Gricelda A. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Min has been the best dentist that I’ve had in the past 8 years. I’m very happy patient that i have recommended my whole family. I’m also a foster mom and I’ve brought over 20 foster kids and my kids are very happy y with Dr. Mi  and his staff members the gilrs are very nice and helpful Thank you Dr. MIN and gilrs.

Paulette M. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just started going to Apple Dental its a small but well run office…..I really likes this after being at a larger office and kind of getting lost in the shuffle….Dr Derek Min is a great dentist very much interested in you….He did my cleaning and I had never had a cleaning done so well…..He also had to redo a root canal that I  had done years ago,he is so thorough during the whole procedure he took many x rays to make sure it was done correctly…He is very calm,gentle and professional. I would recommend apple dental to anyone….You will be greeted by Sandra on most days…..and know your in good hands….

Amy L. from Glendora, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Min and his staff are great! After being scammed by Nu Vision Dental in San Dimas I was really leary about picking a new dentist. This time I yelped different offices and found that Dr. Min had outstanding reviews (unlike Nu Vision who has nothing but comments about their scams- wish I had thought of yelping them beforehand!). Anyways, I made an appointment and was pleasantly surprised at how friendly and helpful the staff was. Went to my first appointment and explained to Dr. Min that I had been scammed by my last dentist so I had a lot of doubts about dentists. Boy did he change my perception. He is TOTALLY legit. No scams, no extra work needed, no ortho recommendations, no urging to get cosmetic bleaching, no demanding you buy their electronic toothbrushes. All he wanted was to fix my issues that never got fixed by my last dentist. I am very satisfied with the service here and will continue to be a patient. Take it from me, I know firsthand what it is like to be conned by a dentist and you DONT have to worry about that here!

Jessie S. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Min knows what he is doing. You are in good hands when you enter his office. And when he says you need something done, you can believe him. Because sometimes I feel certain dental offices will try to say you need things done to get more money in their pockets. Every time I’ve gone in his staff is courteous and friendly and have always been helpful if I had questions or concerns. I was/am a big chicken (yes, I still shed tears in the dentist chair) and  Dr. Min listened to my worries and made sure I was always comfortable. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I recently moved far away and I am still willing to make the journey.

Sugey Z. from Irwindale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I been coming here since late 90’s he is the best dentist. He really cares about your teeth, he never takes advantage of your insurance. Very honest dentist and tells you how to care for your teeth. Dentist like him are very few, he’s the best!

Jose J. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to a few dentist, but none were as good as him. The man has the softest hands and literally did not deliver any pain. PAIN FREE, what else can you ask for. He even explained the whole process to me, which put me at ease.  Highly recommend him.

Chris A. from Industry, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for 15 years Dr Minn is one of the best in the industry. He has a lot of patience and is extremely caring. I highly recommend apple dental for all your family needs. A+++

Kim G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience!! I needed a new tooth, and well, the dentist gave me a great one!! Now I can smile again and feel confident everywhere I go. The doctor’s hands are that of an angel and the receptionist, named Sandra was just the sweetest, welcoming young lady! Being a lady myself I couldn’t help but notice how well put together she was! I couldn’t have had a better experience! I can’t wait to go back and continue having my teeth treated with ease and care. I’d recommend this place to anyone looking for a dentist that’ll make you feel like you’re not getting your mouth ripped apart but being taken care of gingerly!

Elena R. from Baldwin Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Apple Dental for 16 years. Dr Minn is one of the best and most importantly honest doctor you can find which is very rare in this industry, I found that the hard way. If you are looking for professional and honest person Apple Dental is the place to go for your dental needs. i highly recommend Dr. Minn and his staff. A+++++++

(Translated by Google) All I can say about them is that all the staff is very attentive and the doctor does not even say, take my children there for a long time since babies and now they are young and we still take them, they do a very good job and the super clinic clean, we are very happy with all of them. (Original) Todo lo que puedo decir de ellos es que todo el personal es muy atento y el dr ni se diga , lleve a mis hijos ahi por mucho tiempo desde babies y ahora son unos jovenes y aun los llevamos , asen muy buen trabajo y la clinica super limpia , estamos muy contentos con todos ellos.

Stephanie S. from Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Min is an excellent dentist!! I high recommend him to everyone!!! As he administered my injection I did not feel it at all, now that was AMAZING 3/22/2019 came to finally get my crown done. ANOTHER painless appointment. I Love how Dr Min takes his time with his patients and explains what he is doing.. can wait to get my permanent crown.


We are a very honest office, we never overcharge and will never perform unnecessary treatments. We’ve been at this location for 20 years. We do quality work, no questions asked. Dr.Min is most famous for his painless injections and how he handles patients with care. We are child friendly, we don’t usually give injections for children’s fillings and nervous patients who come to our office leave happy and no longer nervous towards dental work anymore. We educate our patients on how to brush and floss so well that they will no longer have dental issues.
