Can’t speak highly enough about my visits to Bright Now! Dental in Costa Mesa. From the moment you arrive till the moment you depart, the staff in this office make heading to the dentist so welcoming, comfortable, and painless.

Cristal, the office manager, is always prepared with your files and greets you with a sincere smile and gratitude. Luis, the dental assistant, is kind and patient and always willing to spend extra time to explain your treatment. Neven, the hygienist (and formerly a dentist in Egypt) is extremely experienced, friendly and knowledgeable (my teeth have never felt cleaner after one of her deep cleanings).

The shining star of the office of course is Dr. Sahawneh. She exudes competence, compassion, and character. She makes going to the dentist feel like visiting an old friend and is always checking to make sure you are doing alright.

Do yourself a favor and check out this office if you are looking for a quality dental experience (I know, sounds like a oxymoron, but it’s true!)

Neven my hygienist did a fantastic job on my cleaning. I had extensive tartar build up after not going to the dentist for 3 years. It was a pain free experience and my teeth feel great.

As a part of my treatment I decided to get veneers on my front four teeth that were chipped and had some fillings that didn’t match my natural tooth color. Dr Shorouq Sahawneh did a fantastic job working on my new smile. I was very nervous about getting this done and looking like I had four pieces of pez candies where teeth used to be but they look very natural. The experience was pain free and I am usually a very sensitive patient. I was in an out after a few hours. I highly recommend the whole Bright now team. Thanks  Neven, Dr Shorouq, Lewis and the rest of the staff. 5 stars!

I started going to Bright Now Dental in Costa Mesa a little over 6 months ago. I have had the best experience with Dr. Sahawneh, Neven, Luis, and the entire front office staff. They have been so accommodating and I am thankful to have found them. I am so impressed and satisfied with the work done by Dr. Sahawneh. She is gentle and kind and I highly recommend going to her if you are afraid of the dentist like I was! Neven has been my hygienist and she is amazing. She took her time and thoroughly explained what she was doing and why she was doing it. After 7 years in California, I have finally found a dental office I love!

Great experience….staff was sweet and caring. Made me feel at ease when getting all 4 of my wisdom teeth pulled. I was in and out of the office before I knew it.

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


Highly recommend this dental office to anyone needing work done! I hadn’t gone to the dentist in about 10 years and when I came to this office, I found out I had a ton of cavities and an infection in my gums. Dr. Sahawneh has done an amazing job with my fillings. She works very quickly and is always checking in to see whether I am feeling any pain. Neven is the hygienist here and she also does a great job–she’s incredibly thorough. When she finished cleaning my teeth, I instantly noticed a whiter smile. Their assistants, Brenda, Luis, and Pratna are all so kind and really make sure you’re feeling comfortable during your visit. Solid team, you can tell they really enjoy working here.

Thank you to Neven for a wonderful cleaning! She was able to remove all of the tarter and build up behind my teeth as well as giving me very valuable insights about how to take better care of my teeth and gums in the future. She was very friendly and extremely helpful. I will be back for her, and because of her, specifically.

Also, a big thank you and shout out of appreciation to Dr. Sahawneh for her friendly service and reliability. It is rare to receive such great, genuine customer service these days

Geoffrey G. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here for my regular check up, and found the place to be so full of energy and joy. I was first brought back by Brenda who was bubbly and kind. She made me feel good when asking me questions about myself. Then the wonderful hygienist, Neven, came in. She was so knowledgeable I thought she was the doctor. I had never considered teeth straighteners before, but with only a couple sentences I felt a real urgency to get them. I love Dr Sahawneh, she was so quick and helpful. Found a cavity and filled it on the spot and even joined my selfie as she was working. Pratna also helped me. She was very kind, always making sure I was comfortable and happy. Overall, this dentist office is my absolute favorite out of the plethora I’ve visited. I’ve never felt so comfortable at the dentist office and I’ve definitely never seen an office so efficient and alive. Thank you bright now dental, Costa Mesa for continually going above and beyond  my expectations. I look forward to my next visit.

I can’t give enough stars to show my gratitude to everyone at Bright Now! Dental of Costa Mesa with special thanks to Dr. Sahawneh.

I recently had root canals and crowns done on my front 4 top teeth and the results are better than I ever imagined. After going thru a rough patch in life In which I neglected my dental hygiene I had become terrified to smile. Tooth decay on my front teeth caused me to constantly put my hand in front of my mouth and robbed me of my smile. After being encouraged by a family member, I came in to Bright now with a shattered smile and constant tooth pain.

After a initial visit with the friendly and knowledgeable staff they explained what could be done to fix the damage I had done. I have to say I was very nervous and worried about showing anyone what had become of my smile and I never once felt judged the whole time.  

After a root canal,which the team made as painless as possible, and temporary hand crafted crowns, I came in to get my permanent crowns. The results are better than I had ever expected. Now I can’t stop smiling. I didn’t realize how self conscious I had become and what an effect it would have.

Thank you again and I highly recommend Bright Now! Dental of Costa Mesa.

Love my dental office and the staff under Dr. Sahawneh! Where to begin…excellent patient care and it’s actually a pleasure going to the dentist…I know who says…but the staff is great Dr. Sahawneh is wonderful and very caring. Her staff are wonderful as well…Luis is awesome and knows his stuff..the Office Manager Cristal provides excellent customer service. Neven the hygienist is excellent she does a great job on our cleanings! All of the staff is wonderful…Overall my experience is 5 stars every visit!! Thank you Bright Now Costa Mesa team!!!

Kira R. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going here for about a year now. The staff is so friendly and helpful. Neven the hygienist is gentle, precise, and guided me through the cleanings every time. I’ve seen 2 doctors in the office but Dr. Sahawneh was my favorite. I had my wisdom teeth pulled and she was so calming and kind that I was not as nervous as I should have been. She simply numbed me and pulled my teeth out. I was shocked at how easy it was and they healed well. When I tell people about it they are shocked haha and wonder why I only did the numbing, but she is definitely an expert!!! Love this office!!! I’ve rarely had to wait and it’s a nice, clean office too.

Dr. Sahawneh is a marvelous and knowledgable dentist. I have been going to Dr. Sahawneh for the past 3 years. And her professional staff — hygienists and dental assistants — are also excellent.

Sam P. from Ocean City, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahawneh and Neven the hygienist were amazing. They took their sweet time working with me- Not once did I sense they were eager to to attend to other patients and finish with Mt treatment. Neven even stayed late to clean my teeth and gums, until I was 110% satisfied with them. I’m a coffee drinker and stain easily, but when I walked out, it’s as if I’d never taken a sip of coffee in my whole life. 5 Stars all the way. Beyond thorough and professional.

Neven the dental hygienist and Dr. Sahawneh do such great work with high attention to detail! I feel super comfortable coming here knowing they with always do their best to send me out with a great smile.

Calle G. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just finished getting a right front tooth filling which was done by Dr. Shorouq Sahawneh and assisted by Luis. I was nervous to have my front tooth worked on, but she did such an amazing job and I couldn’t be happier with my results. She is gentle and kind and makes you comfortable throughout the procedure. I had a root canal performed by her last week and I highly recommend her for any dental procedures you may need. Luis is very informative and they make a great team. Thanks guys 🙂

I had an appointment today at Bright now dental in Costa Mesa for a deep cleaning. Neven was my hygienist and she was absolutely amazing!! She took her time and thoroughly explained what she was doing and why she was doing it. I’m usually terrified of the dentist, but Neven made this such a great experience. She was so calming and gentle, I can’t say enough good things about her. I highly recommend requesting her if you make an appointment at the Costa Mesa location. Luis took my x-rays at my initial appointment and he was very kind and informative as well!

Dezzy L. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahawneh and the hygienist Neven Georgey made a lasting impression during my visit here. It was my first time going a few weeks ago and the staff was very friendly and made me an appointment the same day I had an unexpected crack in my tooth. They performed a
Temp crown on me which securely lasted me for the two weeks my porcelain crown was going to be made and I almost even forgot the temp was there! I received the porcelain crown yesterday and the doctor and assistant were very friendly and attentive and made sure I was 100% comfortable with the fit.
When I asked if there was time for a cleaning, Neven the hygienist stayed with me past closing time so get my teeth clean. To say my teeth look amazing is an understatement. She completely made my teeth look new and gave me proper instructions on how to take care of them.
I think it’s safe to say that I found my new dentist! 🙂

Bryanna N. from Boyle Heights, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was always told I had nice teeth, but when I noticed my front teeth were beginning to chip and crack, I went to my Bright Now for help. I have been coming here for years and the staff has always been amazing, so when dental assistant Pratna recommended Invisalign (such a sweetheart!), I asked for more information, and in less than a year, I am done! Shorouq Sahawnej, DDS, is an amazing dentist and definitely went above and beyond to make my smile the best it can be! Crystal helped me sign up for Care Credit so I can make payments that work for me, and explained all the financial details in a way that I could actually understand. Even the assistants are great, with Karen helping me get all polished up and Luis getting awesome before and after shots! I am so grateful for this wonderful team and look forward to coming back in for my next cleaning soon (which we should totally all be doing every 6 months!)

Bright Now Dental in Costa Mesa is the BEST dentist office I have ever been to in my entire life. Not only for myself but my kids as well. Two of my children have Invisalign and my son was the most recent one. He’s not the bravest kid out there when it comes to going to the dentist but the entire staff like always was so calm, caring and considerate that it made his experience so much better! They dealt with his crying and a little scream but that was him just being him. The staff goes above and beyond to make all my kids and my self feel so comfortable and welcomed I feel like family every time I walk through those doors! I can’t imagine a better place!! Thank you once again everyone at Bright Now Dental Costa Mesa for making my sons experience a great one and going far beyond my expectations!!

What started as a day from a horror flick ended with a fixed face.
I was power walking on my lunch at work today and tripped and slammed my face on the curb while launching bits of two teeth in several directions while gashing my lip open. Bloods everywhere. I called my mom as most 24 year olds would do since the last tooth I lost was nearly two decades before and I had always gone to her in that situation . She recommended Brite Now Den! Due to the emergency, they squeezed me in and 6 hours later I was nearly good as new! Sonia at the front desk is by far the sweetest human I’ve ever met…she was so kind and compassionate and truly worried about my deformed face. Karen took my Xrays and she instantly took all my fear away by telling me that she was impressed with how I wasn’t freaking out but she has seen a lot of awful accidents in her time and mine wasn’t the worst. Dr. Sahawneh performed my oral surgery, gave me a double root canal making the two most beautiful temporary teeth I’ve ever seen and reconstructed my lip by adding some much needed stitches! Karen was by her side the entire time and the two were constantly worried about my pain levels and my well being and made me feel like I was in great hands. The stayed well after there closing hours which I’m ever so grateful for them to be willing in such a last minute and traumatic situation. Today was pretty scary but man am I grateful that my usual dentist was closed and I chose to come here…. I’ll be coming here for now on.  I highly recommend Brite Now Dental to anyone looking for quality care, comfort, and compassion!

Mary M. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my follow up appointment today for deep cleaning and laser. Another wonderful experience! 🙂 Everyone takes the time to give you a warm greeting and a smile.:) They make you feel welcome throughout the entire visit. You never feel like just another number.
Neven is a true gem! Her years of experience truly shows by how she handles each tooth with tender care and gentleness. She also provides education and information throughout the entire process to promote better hygiene. She did an outstanding job with cleaning my teeth-they look and feel amazing!
Dr. Sahawneh your wonderful personality and professionalism is truly infectious because your staff mimics your caring nature. You are beautiful inside and out. Your Kindness goes a long way and I appreciate you and your staff for practicing that.
Pratna-thank you for taking the time to fix my temporary crown-you’re patience is a true gift. To top it off you’re so nice! 🙂
Cristal-thank you for managing the office so well. You wear many hats and doing such an awesome job keeping the office running so flawlessly.
Anyone looking for a new dentist/dental office this is the place to go-you will be treated with the utmost care and compassion…Again, many thanks to all of you…beyond blessed

Very grateful for the high level of care! The hygienist is the best I have ever gone to. My teeth have never felt so clean and she was amazingly gentle.
I’m at the end of my Invisalign treatment and couldn’t be happier! Very proud of my teeth and I can’t say enough good things about the friendliness of the staff.

Tiffaney C. from Camarillo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Neven the hygienist was great and Dr. Sahawneh are amazing! The office is so efficient. They take the stress out of going to the dentist.

Aileen Schlissel-Lanch (Source: Facebook)


The best dentist. She is amazing. She knows her stuff and is super caring. She really loves her work and can do almost all dental work in-house without sending you to other specialists. Excellent.

Rich C. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to many dentists but I’ve never experienced a staff like this.  Dr Sahawneh makes you feel at ease the moment she meets you.  I feel  assured knowing that the quality of work is going to be top notch.  There’s no shortcuts and the attention to detail is what I admire most about her.  

If you are going to get a teeth cleaning, do your teeth a favor and go see Nevin the hygienist.  The pride she has in her work is something to be admired and she gave me the best cleaning I’ve ever had in my life.  Thank you Nevin, my teeth feel so great!  

Of course this is a positive review, but really the whole staff make you feel good every minute you’re there.  Maria, Pratna, Luis are all happy people who genuinely enjoy what they do.  And that’s something pretty special if you ask me.

Less A. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t believe how much whiter my teeth are after my first deep cleaning.  Dr. Sahawneh removed all the build up and stains then the hygienist Neven was so delicate and easy going during the gum cleaning. The assistants are also very sweet. I have to give credit to everyone at that office. The office manager is also very sweet. I’m even going to start Invisalign soon so that’s exciting. I definitely recommend this office to anyone that’s looking for a great dentist and office team.

Jason Haddadin (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Sahawneh is the best dentist I’ve met. She is caring and knowledgeable. Her office and staff are amazing and they always help me with my dental needs and budget. I totally recommend this dentist for everyone.

Genevieve Y. from Artesia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had my second appt with my hygienist Neven is amazing! Her deep cleaning was thorough and gentle with very impressive results. She takes great pride in her work and really cares about her patients well being. She did a maintenance deep cleaning and then polished my teeth. I can now see the clean gap between my gums and as always she leaves them whiter and cleaner then before. I’m already looking forward to my next visit with her. Truly a pleasure to get my cleaning with her, thanks Neven your the best.

Kaley L. from Gilbert, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Today was such a different experience for me ! Normally i dread the dentist  but every time i come see Dr. Sahawneh and Neven Georgey they make me feel apart of the crew here. Even though I’m terrified of needles and drills they comfort me as I start to freak out. I’m grateful they were able to get me right in before I get married in December . Thank you for helping me love my smile again!

Also huge shout out to the staff (all of you) for putting up with my crying sessions every time I see a needle. Y’all are the real MVP’S

Laura N. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was very anxious when my crown fell out and when I called the dentist office they made me feel so at ease. They got me in the same day and Dr. Sahawneh who is all of my kids primary dentist looked at my tooth informed me that I needed a new crown. The front office staff made it so easy to get financing for me and I found out same day that I was approved. They scheduled me to come in ASAP to get it taken care of.
When I came in I was nervous but only because I don’t usually do good at the dentist office. When I was taken back they did X-rays and then started to work on my tooth and Dr. Sahawneh is AMAZING at her profession!! I didn’t feel a thing I wasn’t nervous anymore she made it so easy and was checking on me the entire time to make sure I was ok. I no longer have a fear of going to the dentist. It was the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist thanks to Dr. Sahawneh!! Thank you Bright Now Dental!!

Mondo F. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


First, I wanna start by saying how amazing this place is. I’m not one who loves the dentist like i’m sure many of you out there don’t, however the staff here at Bright now dental made my experience one that is off the charts!!! This experience was utterly amazing! My newfound hygienist Neveen is awesome. She was so informative as to what was going on in my mouth as to why I was in need of a deep cleaning. Also I was tremendously nervous about the whole procedure as I do not attend my dental appointments as often as I should. That is an understatement however she made sure I was comfortable the entire time. After today I will see my new hygienist Neven for my follow-up cleaning in three months with no hesitation.

In addition, Dr Sahawneh diagnosed me with no cavities and sign me up for Invisalign to correct my bite as I have a gap between my two front teeth and explain why having a correct bite is super important in the Preservation of my teeth for the future. Furthermore I can’t believe how affordable the work that I had done was. I’ve often heard horror stories of very costly dental work that was done improperly. I would recommend this office to anyone Especially If you’re looking for an amazing dental staff and quality work.

I just completed my Invisalign treatment and will soon be moving into retainers. I want everyone to know what a great experience I had at the Bright Now! Dental in Costa Mesa. Every member of the team is so warm, welcoming and professional! I couldn’t be happier with my new smile. I was an “ortho relapse”, which means I didn’t wear my retainer like a good girl when I had braces years ago, but Dr. Sahawneh and her team were fabulous. They didn’t lecture me – they were my cheerleaders! They made it a very easy process. If you’re looking for a great Invisalign dentist, this is the place to go!

Alicia T. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahawneh and her team are super amazing, I went there for the first time to get what I thought was a filling to my wisdom tooth but it was extremely damaged she had to remove the tooth, She’s a great dentist, she explained the entire process from the beginning to the end it was quick and painless, I also wanted to say a special thank you to her assistant Brenda she was so awesome.

The entire staff at Bright Now is very professional and they really made me feel super comfortable and entertained during the entire process. The location is easily accessible, parking is never an issue, the facility is pristine, and the most current technologies are being used. I highly recommend this place- there are great folks working there and they all make you feel like family! Thanks, ​guys.

Kevin K. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time at this dental office and everyone was really nice.  I never have any cavities so I wasn’t afraid of that but my teeth have been getting pretty stained from all the coffee and tea I drink.  They suggested a deep cleaning because of plaque buildup.

The hygienist named Neven came in, introduced herself, and said “you might want to take before and after pics.” I thought ok sure lady, and declined. It was completely painless and I am not even kidding my teeth are legitimately whiter!  They look completely different and now I am disappointed I didn’t take her advice and take before and after pictures…. There was this visible stain in between my two front teeth that I’ve had for years and every dentist said I needed to do a round of whitening.  Neven got rid of it!  I honestly could use a round of whitening but I am definitely happier with my smile 🙂

The Dr Shorouq was the dentist I saw for my exam and she was really nice.  I’ve been considering Invisalign for a while and she made a pretty compelling case for it.  The office also has a lot of ways to make the payment more affordable!

Had an appointment for teeth cleaning with Bright Now. I haven’t had my teeth cleaned in a 3-4 years so I was prepared for a deep cleaning which as many of you know who have experience this procedure is not the most painless. My appt was at 11:10 and finished by 1:10. Neven Georgey my dental hygienist spent a good hour and half making sure I was comfortable and felt no pain during the procedure. She did a fantastic job through out the entire process.

Jacqueline S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


My first time at Bright now! Amazing experience. I had a deep cleaning with Neven Georgey and she was awesome! Very gentle, I didn’t feel a thing and my teeth look beautiful! Highly recommend especially to people who hate getting a cleaning like myself!
