My family LOVES Dr. Moraga.  He’s an excellent dentist, very gentle and nice.  When administering the shots, he’s especially thoughtful about making sure that they’re almost painless.  He’s conscientious, efficient and never, ever makes you wait like so many dentists.  His staff is wonderful and the offices are bright, roomy and comfortable.  We had been without a dentist since our doctor of many years retired and I was very concerned about getting another great dentist.  Worries are over!  I highly recommend Dr. Moraga.

I have been going to Dr. Moraga since the day he opened his practice. He has taken care of my kids from baby teeth to adulthood. He cares for his patients. He has always been kind and professional. Dr. Moraga also hires very good dental hygienists who have always done a great job. Staff is always professional.

I have been coming to this place for many years and I won’t let another dentist touch my teeth. Dr. Moraga is the best doctor I’ve ever had, and he’s so patient with his patients. I never leave on a bad note, they always make me so happy.  The staff is always so fabulous by asking if you need anything, rescheduling times if something comes up, and on top of everything. So I thank you guys so much for everything you do! I’m never leaving you!!

This will be my fourth & last Dental group in the Santa Clarita Valley in 5 years.  I am very picky when it comes to Doctors & Dentists & have no problem going to tons before I find the right one.  Well I definitely found the right one here!   Setting up an appointment time when I needed it was simple.  Filling out the paperwork was fast & easy.  The front office manager or receptionist was very pleasant & friendly.  She complimented my hair style & of course compliments will always win my praise…:-)   After filling out my paperwork I was taken in right away for a full mouth of xrays.  While xrays always suck no matter where you go, the hygienist was gentle & very caring making sure I was comfortable at all times.  She did a very thorough & meticulous job cleaning my teeth & even focused on areas I had been concerned about that had started to badly stain from a new product I started using.   Dr. Moraga came in after wards & did my check up.  There was no trying to sell me on cosmetic work (braces…I’m 35 really) that DIDN’T need to be done or selling me on removing my wisdom teeth even though I have never had a problem with them like all the other dentists told me I HAD to do.  I was told they would continue to monitor the wisdom teeth and if & when they became a problem we would deal with it.  I was out of there in an hour.  It was just that EASY!!!     Thank you Copperhill Family Dental!  BEST DENTIST VISIT EVER!  See you in October!!!

My wife went here first and told me how great it was, so I had to check it out myself too!
It was hard to find a dentist that doesn’t make you sign an arbitration agreement, but this place does not. I’ll never go to a place that does, I like having my 7th amendment rights intact, thank you very much! Not that I can think of a reason to sue a dentist, especially one as nice as these guys. The staff was very nice and appreciated our business. They even had TVs that you can watch while they go to work on you! How cool is that?
5 stars! Really great Dentists, you should give them a shot.

Can’t believe I am saying this but I can’t wait to go back here!! I came here through the reviews I read on Yelp especially one who had been to the same dentist as me and was disappointed with the other dentist. I was in alot of pain, got an appointment same day, met the friendliest staff and the dentist was awesome. He sat and talked to me, recommended a specialist, called the specialist and within 10 minutes I was on my way to see the specialist!! They were awesome too. After being a dental assistant for 18 years I feel like I can evaluate easier than others and these people are tops!!

Elissa N. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start off by saying that I have been to numerous dentist in the SCV and I have never found one that I have liked till I went to this dentist. They are all super friendly, the office is nice and comfortable, and they are quick! One thing I have always hated is when dentists over book and you are sitting waiting for them to start and hours later you are finally leaving after just getting a basic cleaning. This was not this dentist…I walked out within 45 mins…I couldn’t believe it! Another thing is they go over everything with you and they don’t try to charge you for things you do not need. I have found my dentist and I am super thrilled.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Moraga for about 10 years now so this review is long over due. He’s done extractions, crowns, fillings and everything in between for me. Always very minimal pain, quick and easy. They are all so friendly. My experience is always pleasant. I’m so grateful to have a dentist I trust after having not so great experiences elsewhere. His staff  make it easy to schedule appointments, you don’t have to book weeks/months out and payments are easy. Thank you Dr. Moraga and your wonderful staff!

Brenda H. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Morago And his staff were very professional, nice and compassionate. He gave me a discount due to not having insurance. Took me in same day and since I had to have a crown he did a temporary crown same day to ease my pain. Squeezed me in the same day and the wait was not over 10 mins from the time I walked in until I saw the Dr. I highly recommend this Dentist and his office.

Love going to this office. There’s never any wait, the staff is very efficient and friendly. You can tell it’s a family business that cares about you as a person, not another ‘copay’ or patient file. Dr. Moraga is great. He’s very gentle and down to Earth. There’s no constant upsell like I saw at a lot of the other dentists I went to in SCV. The best part is that you know that your next appointment will be with the same staff and dentist! No revolving door of dentists coming and going!

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


Dr. Moraga is hands down the best dentist our family has ever been to!   I took my son to a children’s dentist and he freaked out (autistic).   Took him to Dr. Moraga and he watched a movie in the chair and didn’t care that his teeth were being cleaned!   The whole experience is pleasant and professional.  I have referred over 20 happy patients and will continue to!

Melissa G. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Dr. Moraga’s office for 4 years. He and his staff are really wonderful for my whole family, particularly my 4 year old son. Dr. Moraga suggested that my son start coming to the dentist with Mom and Dad when he was about 2 so, that way, when it came time for his own appointments, it would not be a place that was foreign and scary to him. You know what? That technique worked like a charm! My son went for his first appointment and was totally excited. The staff are also amazing. After a few visits they completely remembered us and now even recognize me by voice and first name on the phone. What a gem of a place!

I have been looking for a dentist for a couple years now.  The last one I had seemed like she was always trying to sell me something and that made me uncomfortable.  I just want my teeth cleaned, not a sales pitch!  We came across Dr. Moraga by chance when my husband had a severe toothache.  The office is 2 blocks from our home so we decided to give them  a try and the staff and Dr. are wonderful!  They saw my husband and told us what needed to be done and said they would keep an eye on the costs so we won’t go over our insurance maximum.  They really made my husband feel comfortable and he’s not too fond of dentists but he loved going here.  Now I’ve made appointments for myself and my two daughters and for the first time ever I’m looking forward to going to the dentist!!
