Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Robert M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr. Khodai. I went in for a regular checkup and she found 2 cavities which gave me a nervous chill of curiosity as to how much pain will be suffering. However, Dr. Khodai made me relax and the procedure went through without much fanfare. She filled the cavities and explained what she was doing to comfort my nerves. To me, that was the best experience in dentistry in my life. Dr. Khodai is by far the best dentist I have ever visited. She is knowledgeable and very experienced. I could see that she cares for her patients and wanted me to feel comfortable. The office is extremely clean and modern. Her staff is very nice and friendly.

Great prices, excellent service, unbeatable! Dr Khodai is the best at what she does. My teeth look and feel excellent. The staff was very caring and helpful. This is the best place to go for dental work, no doubt!

Everyone is the office is very professional and attentive to detail. It shows that Dr Khodai and her staff truly care about their patients. I would definitely recommend Barranca Dental.

I just finished up my first surgical procedure for my first implant. Dr. Khodai and her team are by far the best in the industry. I was scared. They gave me every comfort I needed. Assurance, orange juice and personal stories that made me truly understand they know what we go through. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. ❤️ If I didn’t hug all of you, consider yourself hugged.

I love Dr. Khodai!!!  I would not go to any other dentist and the work she has done so far is perfectl!  Even if I moved to LA or SD,  I would still make the drive.  I have been going to her since 2009.  I have an etensive amount of work to be done, and she has been very flexible and practical with the scope of work to be done.  She is always in a great mood, has a heart of gold, is a total perfectionist, and I have never experienced any pain from the proceedures during or after.  I can honestly say that I look forward to my appointments and seeing her staff whom I love as well.

Chris T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist EVER. Period. My whole family has been going to Dr. Khodai for over five years now. She tells you straight what you need done and/or addressed. She does not oversell you products or upsell services that you don’t need like other dentists in the area typically do.Dr. Khodai is very personable and takes a lot of different types of insurance.  Chances are she takes yours! Very flexible with appointments and is very accommodating.

Just had a crown and could not be more pleased with the experience from start to finish. I was never even remotely uncomfortable and was frequently entertained by Dr. Khodai and her amazing staff. Gratitude.

We love Dr. Khodai and her staff. She is so knowledgeable and caring. She always takes the time to explain what she’s doing, and really listens and helps to find the best solution to any dental problem. She helped us find a minimally invasive solution to my daughter’s problematic teeth. We highly recommend Barranca Dental!

I had a great experience with Dr. Khodai! I had not been to the dentist in a while and she was so polite and personable! I would absolutely recommend her, in fact, I am booking an appointment for my husband very soon!

Dayna Murdock (Source: Facebook)


Dr Neda Khodai and her staff, are amazing and a joy to visit. Dr. Khodai is the most talented and artistic dentist I have ever had work on my mouth. My teeth are absolutely beautiful and I can’t praise Dr. Khodai enough. If you want a wonderful experience with beautiful and healthy teeth you need to go see Dr. Khodai at Barranca Dental Excellence!

Maria T. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Khodai is the best! I went to see an ortho specialist today who complimented a crown Dr. Khodai did for me and also complimented my filings and said she did such a good job that he couldn’t tell which teeth had fillings.I started going to Dr. Khodai 4 years ago and now several of my co-workers and even their spouses go to her too.Dr. Khodai evaluates your teeth, then explains plan of treatment, then gets to work. And she’s a crack up. Love going to see her.

Lawrence B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate dentists….Ive had 3 root canals, 4 crowns, over 20 fillings, and a bunch of other stuff done.  The weird thing is, i use state of the art toothbrushes, floss daily, fluoride mouthwash (twice a day), and sleep with a night guard yet I have the most cavity prone teeth in the world.  So being that I’ve tried out just about every dentist of every size, color, and sexual orientation…I can safely say that Dr. Khodai is awesome.  Definitely honest and gives you great advice.  Bottom Line:  Dr. Khodai is a cavity fighter.  In this recession, its time to get your work done ASAP.

Linda K. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr Khodai about 2009. I have extreme anxiety regarding dentists. She is not only kind and understanding but is willing to prescribe something to relax you prior to treatment. This totally saved me! I recently began some intense work and still she is thorough, and gentle and does wonderful work. Her staff is just as nice and understanding of my fears and anxiety. Highly recommend!

Denise F. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Khodai is the BEST! She makes going to the dentist such a pleasant experience and I can honestly say because of her I don’t mind going to the dentist. She cares so much about her patients and works extremely hard to make sure that she and her staff deliver a high level of care. I strongly recommend her as our whole family has been going to see her for well over 12+ years and always receive amazing care.

Eleazar E. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended to Dr. Khodai via a friend, he raved about her work, so I decided to go and take my son too. The staff is very professional and nice. Waiting area and entire office is clean, they have a small fridge with waters for patients. We both got our x-rays done and our 6-month cleaning, I must say I felt the difference of what was done to me with my previous dentist and how Dr. Kohdai staff works. Definitely will come back for dental work and I highly recommend her.

I recently experienced a toothache and needed to find a nearby dentist. I found Barranca Dental online and saw many good reviews so I decided to call to see if they had any available appointments. Dr. Khodai and her team were helpful and I was able to come in for an appointment the next day. The service was great and Dr. Khodai and her team were very professional, nice, and made me feel welcomed. I was treated efficiently and painlessly, and now I no longer have a toothache. I think I found my new dentist, and will most likely be returning in the future. If you are looking for a new dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Khodai and her team!

Hillary H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Khodai for the past three years. I had a lot of dental issues (multiple root canals, cavities, cracked crown) this past year and Dr. Khodai and her team have helped me through all of it.Even people that are doing a teeth cleaning with a dental assistant, I hear her taking the time to greet them before working on her own patients. She is definitely a multitasker (answering questions from her employees, chit chatting with her patients to make them feel comfortable) but I promise she is 100% focused on you when you’re in the chair.

Jim H. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Khodai and her team are simply the best. All my family loves her and staff. The office is clean, the staff is friendly, and Dr. Khodai is an extraordinary dentist!

Elysse P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Google)


I can’t believe I’ve never written a review for Barranca Dental! I LOVE DR. KHODAI!! I’ve been going to her since I was a freshman in college. I had just gotten my tongue pierced and I fractured my tooth in the middle of the night. (YES, I KNOW… so so stupid). She fixed me up quick and I’ve been forever grateful. I’ve moved to LA, but I still drive all the way to Irvine because I can’t find any dental office as good as her/her staff.Her staff is informative and very helpful. Dr. Khodai never pushes you to do treatments but always makes great recommendations.

My family and I have been to Dr Khodai numerous times. She is honest, caring and truly and expert in her field. Her office is super clean and her staff are wonderful.

Dr. Khodai is very friendly and experienced dentist. I had done my crown reconstruction and cavity filling. It is been six months now for crown reconstruction and everything is good. I recommend Dr. Khodai

Adela I. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


I began having a toothache 2dys before going on vacation, which I hoped would go away.  I called Dr Khoda’s office and they were kind enough to bring me in right away.  Dr Khodai took care of my problem and now I’m able to enjoy a week at Acapulco.  Thank you Jackie for scheduling me an appointment in such short notice, thanks to Sandy who go me started and finished me off.  Thank you Dr Khodai for your great work and advice.  I love this place

I’ve been going to Dr. Khodai for several years now. She is a great doctor, very knowledgeable and has the best bedside manners. I came to her by recommendation after my crown work was completely botched by another doctor and the tooth underneath kept hurting despite of several adjustments. Dr. Khodai was able to find the problem and fixed it for me, no more pain or discomfort. Her office is clean and inviting and all the staff members are pleasant.

A very professional staff, and a very clean and nice dental office. Dr. Khodai is an experienced dentist who is also very caring. I have been going to this dental office for the last 15 years. And I would not go anywhere else.

Kelly Dippold (Source: Google)


Having just moved to the area, I needed to find a new dentist. Dr. Khodai was close to my new home, received good reviews, offered Saturday appointments and was part of my dental plan so I scheduled an appointment. All of the staff I met during my visit were extremely nice, engaged and answered all of my questions. Dr. Khodai spent a lot of time with me and offered great suggestions on how to take care of some of the dental issues I had been having. I had a great experience and will be a long and loyal customer!

Lucinda Wright (Source: Facebook)


I thank my friend who recommended Dr. Khodai to me several years ago. She is so attentive to dental health and comfort in treatment. I’ve never dreaded going to my appointments. I continue to recommend Dr. Khodai for her care and expertise and the entire practice for their friendliness and competency.

Hal Steele (Source: Facebook)


My wife and I have been coming to Dr. Khodai for over ten years – even after moving further away from the office. We consider it well worth the drive. Dr. Khodai is simply the best, and the staff is always super friendly and helpful. I’ve recommended people to the practice, and know they are happy as well. I’ll certainly continue to recommend Dr. Khodai, knowing that everyone will receive excellent care.

Marion P. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dentist and all of her staff, I have Nadine as my hygienist, and both Nadine and Dr Khodai give comfortable shots  I feel comfortable going there for treatments and feel I am being given good advise and the best of treatment.

James J. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sunday night, my daughter, age 7, at bowling she tripped and fell face down.  She broke both of her permanent front tooth, one only has half remaining, the other 2/3.  We called Dr. Khodai, and she came right a way from her busy Sunday schedule. Her help and care is way beyond the norm in dentistry.  She gave us guidance toward what action our family need to take for the night and action plan for the next day.  We are truly grateful for her presence and care!Monday morning, Martin Luther King’s Birthday, after seeing a Endodontic Specialist (Recommended by Dr. Khodai) we came to Dr. Khodai’s office at around 10:00AM, without an appointment.  Within 5 minutes, she is able to see us and start reconstruction of my daughter’s two front teeth.  She was really careful and took her time to complete the reconstruction, and the result is exceptional.  Besides the science, the procedure she performed is more of an art.  The cosmetic repair looks just like my daughter’s real teeth a day before

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


I’m deathly scared of the dentist.  I go rock climbing, sky diving, and i’ve even bungee jumped once.  For some odd reason, id rather plunge towards the earth from 10,000 feet in the air at terminal velocity than have my teeth checked.Then I met Dr. K.  She and her staff are kind (and very pretty) and great at keeping at ease.  I went in for my first check up in several years and had to get a deep cleaning and 2 fillings.  Dr.K was super gentle and i barely felt a thing.  I guess I have to go back in 6 months for a check up but I’m glad that I found her.

Jaclyn C. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Khodai for over 13 years and I can’t praise her enough. I recommend to her anyone who needs a Dentist in the area. I had a lot of anxiety when it came to Dentist and from the first visit, she made me feel at ease. I have the best care and my dental health is an A. I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Khodai!

Vicky N. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Khodai is a wonderful dentist and so are her staff!  I have been going to her for over 11 years, even when I lived in LA for about 8 years.  I moved back to Irvine, and so glad that I did because I’m now close to her again.  I completely recommend everyone to go see her. Her work and care are impeccable!She has taken great care of me and my teeth and smile.  Just recently this week, one of my molars chipped.  Thankfully I wasn’t in pain but also thankfully Dr. Khodai was able to see me within 2 days.  She fixed my tooth pain-free​.Thank you, ​Dr. Khodai and to all of the wonderful staff, especially Jackie!  You are all the best!

Sienna E. from Grand Terrace, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had some previous bad dentistry where the dentist was sloppy and left part of my silver filling under my new white filling. It bothered my gums a lot l & food was constantly trapping. My friend told me to go to Dr. Khodai, but I live in Victorville so I was hesitant. Since my friend swears be her, and I’m tired of sloppy, expensive dentists, I called. They got me in that day for not only the filling I needed, but accommodated my long distance driving by adding a dental cleaning, an exam & full set of X-rays to this appointment.

Jagan R. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been visiting Dr. Khodai for the last 6 years. So far I have no complaints. My family of 4 visit her every six months. Their staff are very friendly and helpful. I had no billing issues or appointment challenges. I usually plan my appt 4 months in advance. We take our kids for one off check up as well. We are extremely happy with the care we receive and we talk a lot about kids school and education. Would recommend her services to anyone.
