Dr. Melwani is great- especially if you are nervous about getting work done on your teeth. She was assisted by Dee.. who also did such an immaculate job of making sure I was comfortable, relaxed, and informed about the process. Dee has such a pleasant demeanor and fun energy. She was also extremely meticulous and communicative which helped cultivate a very trustworthy environment. Both women were direct but nurturing- stressing the urgency of the work I needed done but not making me feel bad about avoiding treatment for so long. I was not sedated at all for my procedure and both women did an amazing job of keeping me calm and worked really well together.

Nancy at the front desk simplified the very stressful financial process and made some helpful suggestions about how to prioritize future work. She was knowledgable about my case and was very informed about my procedure- so she was able to answer my million questions. This group works as a team.

Honestly- dental work is never cheap. But I think that this facility provides a value of service that surpasses the cost of the procedures. This is coming from somebody who doesn’t have a lot of $$. I didn’t feel cheated, pressured, or like I was being asked to overpay.

Every single person I communicated with made it clear to me that in the event I felt discomfort or pain after my procedure that I could come right back in and have my teeth looked at. I really appreciated this. I cannot emphasize enough how much I used to avoid going to the dentist and how much I look forward to working with this group to optimize my dental health. Thank you so much ladies!

5 stars all around! My family and I have been coming to Bayshore dental for 10+ years. Staff is welcoming from the minute you walk-in until you leave. Doctors are very thorough with their work and provide the utmost care to their patients. I’ve had a number of bad dental experiences – the whole staff has changed my outlook on coming in for teeth cleanings/fillings.

Another plus, they’ve always provided a cost break-down so you know what you’re getting into before its started!

(Other doctor), Dr. Melwani, and the whole team –  Thank you for the exceptional service!

(Other doctor) and Dr. Melwani are the sweetest! They both are competent and excel at explaining even the most difficult areas of dentistry to patients. The hygienists are absolute rockstars! Those assistants never stop working! And Nancy and Rachel at the front desk are the glue! His is an office I trust for not only myself and my family but your families too!

Dr. Melwani and the staff are so wonderful and nice. I feel as though they do go out of their way to provide good quality dental services instead of trying to sell a ton of unnecessary dental products like some other practices do. Appointments have always been on time. Parking is plentiful and free. Also love the welcome gift with a mug and dental goodies. The office is near Fashion Island, so the location is very convenient for running errands as well!

The staff at Bayshore dental are so nice and professional. The office itself is very relaxing and comfortable. I’ve been a patient with this dental office for years and they are always on schedule. They are friendly and schedule their patients so that you experience minimal waiting in their waiting room. I always receive the best care here!

I usually hate going to the dentist but after seeing Dr. Melwani and her team, I will be going back! She made me feel more than comfortable and answered any questions I had.

I’ve been going to Bayshore dental for many years. Not only are the staff very friendly and professional, they are also very caring with the treatments and procedures they provide. I can actually say that it is a pleasure to go to the dentist!  Yes, you read that correctly.
If your looking for one of the best dental practices around, I can not stress enough how fantastic this office is.  They will clearly discuss with you what the costs are and/or what insurance will cover, you will never get a surprise bill.

I have been a patient at Bayshore Dental for the last 6 years. The staff is so friendly and accommodating to my schedule. The dentists and hygienists are wonderful – helpful, honest, and friendly. I would recommend Bayshore Dental to anyone in OC. I moved to South OC and still make the 30 minute drive for my appointments, simply because the care is so great. Nancy at the front desk is so sweet and makes the scheduling/payment process easy and stress-free.

I can’t recommend Dr. Melwani and Bayshore Dental Group enough.  Outstanding experience with the entire staff, they made my experience relaxed and stress-free.  Booking and communication was a breeze.

Victoria P. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came in for a dentist appointment after two years and Dr. Melwani and her staff were excellent. I have had a fear of dentists for as far back as I can remember and they took the extra time to make me feel comfortable. Grateful I was referred to this office.

Nadia C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Bayshore Dental Group is a great primary to have! Their staff is always very friendly and it’s very simple to book an appointment or make adjustments. I do my twice annual cleanings with them, and have had nothing but a great experience with them.

There isn’t a toothbrushing station that you can use prior to the appointments like some dentist offices have, but they do a great job cleaning!

They also clean my retainer as well which always nice! If you’re looking for a new dentist in the area, book with Bayshore today!

Bayshore Dental is the best! I have been coming here for over 12 years, I highly recommend them for any dental needs, they will take care of you. Thank you (other doctor) and Dr Melwani!

I’ve been going to Bayshore Dental for 17 years and most of the staff has been there through all those years. They are, by far, the most friendly, knowledgeable and responsive group of people ever! I highly recommend Bayshore Dental for any and all dental service.

Marcia J. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


For 16 years I have been a patient of Bayshore Dental Group – since the month I moved from the east coast to California.  They are the best.  I cannot imagine going anywhere else.   I have told many friends about Bayshore.

Kim W. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Bayshore Dental is great. I’ve been going here for probably about 20 years. They are very professional, friendly and knowledgeable about dentistry. They have also helped me with a sleep appliance that keeps my snoring down so both I and my husband sleep better.
