Dr. Begino is my go-to-dentist for all my dental needs.  He is very knowledgeable, honest, friendly, and will explain what he is doing/ and answer any questions before he works on you.  He takes his time when he works on you and has super gentle hands.  I had a exam, cleaning, and some fillings done and did not feel any discomfort throughout the entire procedure.  I wish more dentists were like him.  I highly recommend this office.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Ruben Begino for my routine check-ups and cleaning for the past several years. I’m so thankful I found him. He is by far one of the best dentists I know. He is kind, thorough, and takes his work seriously. I wouldn’t go to anyone else!

My Mom needed a same day appointment due to an infection and Jaqueline at the front desk was extremely helpful.  She walked my mom and I through the process. My mom was able to be seen right away and received immediate help. The staff was extremely polite and attentive. Thank you Bristol Family Dental Center

Another great visit, doctor made sure my crown fitted correctly and had sent it back to the lab to get the correct spacing between the teeth, all the work that I’ve had done at the dental office has been excellent the doctor pays attention to details, would highly recommend this dental office they do and beyond excellent job!

Jason K. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)


This guy saved my teeth! I had problems with my gums and they are way better now.  His dental assistants are friendly too.  Oh, and his equipment is pretty modern such as ultra vibrating deep cleaning…not the old scrapers (although I would think most dentists stopped using the old scrapers by now).

Angel V. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing with some of the best people I’ve ever met. Once I open the doors to enter the building they always manage to put a smile on your face and never let you leave disappointed!

Nel G. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentist really takes his time to make sure I’m comfortable & not feeling any pain. That is huge for me. I’ve never had a dentist that cared so much!

Caroline S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live in San Diego but travel to Orange County for this clinic. Their front desk staff is so nice! I am treated so well. Seems like the office is very modern and very well taken care of. I was made to feel at ease by Dr. Begino. He’s the best dentist in SoCal! I got a lot of work done and was not able to pay for it all up front. Lupe was able to help me finance my treatment in the best way possible for me and my budget! She is so awesome and has the best personality. She made me feel like I was the most important client they had! I’m sure she does this for everyone but she is great! Great clinic, great dentists and awesome office staff! Very highly recommended for sure! Just came back to Bristol Family Dental and was helped by Dr. Vu. She is so talented and knowledgeable, she really has a great hand and does the best deep cleanings. Jackie, the office manager is always so nice and helps explain my insurance coverage.

I went to Dr. Begino after having a terrible experience with a Dentist so I was somewhat resistant to the idea of having someone inspect my teeth again. He was patient, understanding and really explained the issues I was struggling with. I like that he and his staff are bilingual and are affordable. I feel like I am being taken care of and would recommend Bristol Family Dental Center to my family including my grandmother.

Mari B. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excelente service,I’m so glad of found this place to take care of my daughters teeth…se habla español y me siento confortable que sean bilingües,una atmósfera muy profesional y muy respetuosa…las instalaciones están limpias más importante los Doctores contestaron mis preguntas y demás personal muy atentas …al llegar a la recepción me atendieron muy cordialmente y rápido además son muy flexibles en cuanto a las citas también se adaptan fácilmente a mi horario.

I’m very happy to have found this kind & caring dentist for my son.  as a mother, my utmost concern is that my child feels safe and comfortable during any type of medical exam.  i can honestly say that both dr. begino & his entire staff were excellent.  my first impression of this office was via roxanna on the phone.  she was extremely courteous and thorough in explaining everything to me. i asked her lots of questions, and she patiently answered each one. when she put me on hold, she was very kind about it, and i never felt like i was being rushed the dental assistant who did the xrays actually made it fun for my son.  i heard lots of questions & laughter while he was getting them done.  the hygienist who did his cleaning was great and even happily changed the flavor of the polish when my son said the first one was “funny”  🙂 the office manager went over my billing in a friendly manner, and explained what my options were.  because this dentist is well known for his calm & professional chair-side demeanor, he can be booked around 3-4 weeks in advance. he is worth the wait. if the word dentist gives you goosebumps, i encourage you to try this office out.  i think that you will be pleasantly surprised as i was.  my son actually asked when he could see them again.

I had an incident at a restaurant where I bit into a bone that shouldn’t have been in there. I came in with terrible pain and they said I would have to wait. The office staff was very kind and warm. Very clean and smells good. From the outside you may be questioning if This is a reputable place because it is in a rough part of town and the sign is a little outdated. Don’t judge a book by its cover!  This place is a place you want to go if you are in desperate need of dental care. They sent me to see the dentist and he was very gentle and kind. I am a very good judge of character and been to many dentists. This dentist cares about people and doesn’t just want your money. He wants you to be healthy, love your smile and pain free!  Please give Bristol Family Dentistry a chance. You won’t be disappointed!!!!  One other thing I will mention is that they take children and adults so you can get all of your appointments done in one stop. I didn’t hear any crying from the children that were there and they seemed very good with them. Again. Bring your family in and give them a chance… by the way they accept Denti-cal!!!!!

I came here for the first time and was very satisfied. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the doctors were excellent. Will be coming here for all my dental needs.

I have been a patient of Dr. Begino for more than 3 years and have nothing but the most respect for him and his staff. Everyone in the office is friendly, the dental assistants are great; more imortantly, Dr, Begino is the best dentist I have ever been to. He takes his time, explains things very well, he is very gentle and just seems like an all around great person. I have seen him as a patient with great insurance and also as a cash patient and there is no difference in the quality of care I have received. I have had my fair share of bad experiences with dentists to say the least. The dentist I went to prior to finding Dr. Begino told me the only option for a tooth I was having a problem with (it had a previous root canal) was to pull it and get an implant; lots of cash for their office!!! I wanted a second opinion; therefore, i was seen by the head doctor in the same office who told me the same thing… I was going to lose my tooth! I am a fairly young person and much too young to start losing my real teeth. So, long story short, I was refered to Dr. Begino by a friend. It was the best thing I have ever done! Dr. Begino refered me to a root canal specialist who was able to re-treat the tooth I was previously told had to be yanked. The other dentist never even told me this type of specialist existed; even after repeatedly asking if there was any other option than pulling my tooth. Overall, I could not be happier with this dental office. It is rare I yelp and I hope my experience is a testimony if you are looking for a great dentist, look no further than Dr. Begino.
