After my dentist retired, I was so scared of getting  a new dentist and staff. But the dr.’s and staff are wonderful.  They put all my fears to rest. They explain things and that helps. I even have my family going to them!

Ashley Nicole (Source: Google)


The staff is super friendly and they are always mindful of my time, I never spend more than a few minutes waiting. The facility is clean and modern.  I had a cleaning today and the hygienist was amazing. Always checking to make sure I was comfortable, kept the conversation going and answered the million and one questions I had about whitening now that I got my braces off. She even went looking to find me a sample of the specific toothpaste she reccomend for me.

Thank you Dr. Hatae for the completion of my implants. They were done to perfection. He made me feel so comfortable and explained everything before and during the process.

I LOVE Dr. Hatae!!! He is GREAT! My Children love him too! The office staff is amazing and friendly and the dental hygienists are wonderful too! I never liked the dentist…and now I LOVE it! I recently was seen by Dr. Hernandez and he is AMAZING too! I was having an issue with a crown which he adjusted during my appointment. The following week he called me to follow up and see how I was doing and confirm adjustment worked! BEST DENTISTS EVER!!!!

Dr Hatae and the team at Coyote Hills Family Dentist are the best of the best!  Their office is clean and their equipment is state of the art, however what makes the biggest difference at Coyote Hills is the people who work there!  Katy is my hygienist and is just absolutely wonderful! She is always  smiling and upbeat! She takes special care to let me know if there are areas of concern and always remembers that I hate cinnamon flavor and my favorite color for a new toothbrush is pink!  Dr Hatae is always pleasant and professional.  He always has a kind word to share.  Dr Hatae explains procedures and gives options for necessary dental care. Every person I have had contact with in their office has been a pleasure.   Sandy works the business end and is great about keeping you up to date regarding your account and insurance billing.  This is one terrific group and I don’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist in Fullerton or the surrounding areas!!

Coyote Hills is awesome! I have been going here for about 6 years after my previous dentist retired. Dianne was my hygienist at the previous dentist and I followed her and the rest of the staff to Coyote Hills. Dianne and the whole staff are extremely friendly and great to deal with. The office is very modern and they have all kinds of different technology. They show you your X-rays on a giant flat screen right in the exam room so they can show you and exhaling everything that is going on. Like the rest of the staff, Both Dr. Hate and Dr. Hernandez are very friendly and do a great job explaining everything to make you feel comfortable. I have recommended Coyote Hills to a number of people and everyone has nothing but great things to say about their experience.

Coyote Hills Family Dentistry is a warm environment that I am glad I came across. The office is clean and high tech but not so much that it’s intimidating. The staff is friendly and kind making you feel right at home from the start. When you step foot in the office your greated with a smile, which is a nice change compared to some places I have been. The ambience is lovely. Help yourself to warm coffee or cold water or both! The overall experience is nothing but pleasurable. I was never talked into things I didn’t need and the Dr. spoke to me in plain English. He gave me options and recommendations as oppose to orders of what to do. To sum it up, it’s great go now get that sore tooth fixed, fix that crooked smile, whatever you need just go to them and they will treat you right.

I FINALLY found a dentist!  My original dentist of 30 years had to retire due to health reasons. He’s the reason I could even walk into a dentists office without freaking out. Then he was gone. I tried no less than 3 dentists, including those who advertised as “gentle.”  After the first visit, every time, I was anxious/nauseous  at the thought of going back. Dr. Hatae, at Coyote Hills Family Dentistry was recommended by a close friend (also needing extra care).  I felt cared for the minute I walked into the office by the entire staff. I purposely didn’t write a review until after I had actually had some work done. Dr. Hatae took care of two cavaties AND I walked away with two brand new crowns. He was personable, caring and informative – always concerned about how I was doing.  I’m so happy I found Coyote Hills Family Dentistry!

I love the people at Coyote Hills Family Dentistry! The doctors and staff are so friendly and excellent at what they do. I have been going there for years. I have recommended my family and coworkers to go, and many have and love them too. They have state of the art equipment. They will discuss the plan to keep your mouth in good health, and there is never any pressure from them. You will not regret going to Coyote Hills Family Dentistry!

I have been a registered nurse for many years. One of the advantages of the profession is knowing who the best physicians are. If Dr. Hatae was a surgeon, he would be my top choice. A fellow nurse who I have the utmost respect for steered me to him. He is truly one of the best dentists in the industry. I chose to follow him from Covina to Fullerton when he moved his practice. The extra drive is well worth it. The first impression when you enter the lobby is that it’s clean, comfortable and well cared for. The staff at the front desk are very pleasant and helpful. The back office staff are professional, caring and knowledgeable. The exam rooms are spotless. Dr. Hatae, I am blessed to have you as my dentist.

I have been going to this practice since 1977 and, even though I moved 25 miles away 18 years ago, I have continued to have my pearly whites cleaned and maintained by Coyote Hills Family Dentistry, partly because of Julie’s smiling face every time I walk through the door. I have seen many many changes over the years, from new offices to new dentists. However, this environment, by far, has surpassed the previous locales, and the practice is now state-of-the-art! I would recommend Coyote Hills Family Dentistry to anyone looking to go somewhere new or to change practices.

Myra F. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


My entire family is very pleased with Coyote Hills Dentistry. My husband and I, our adult children, and all our grandchildren receive kind and competent care by everyone on this team. The office staff is very helpful and friendly, the hygienists are competent and caring, and Dr. Hatae is very professional and knowledgable. I strongly recommend this dental office.

Patricia G. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Having retired and no further dental insurance, I was reluctant to have further dental care until it became necessary. (Bad idea to wait).  I am a retired medical professional and am very cautious on my selection of providers. I researched for a local dentist through several referral sources.  I ultimately scheduled and appointment with the Hatae Family Dental office. It was very close to my residence and in speaking with office personnel on the telephone, there were extremely helpful and professional.

Suzanne B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have total confidence in Dr Hatae and his entire staff. The office team is always warm & friendly –even when I’m running late! I live in Long Beach and work in Santa Monica, so traffic (sadly) is most always an issue for me. They accommodate me as best possible and always try to fit me in. (Thank you Patty!!) Dr Hatae is a great dentist who explains all options to whatever your dental issue may be and let’s you decide what best suits you. And I’ve been seeing Katie for dental cleanings (3x yearly) for nearly 5 years now and she is not only one of the best hygienist but such a lovely person. Julie in Accounting is a master in working with insurance companies and does all she can to accommodate you if you do not have insurance. I happily recommend Hatae Family Dentistry!

Can I give 1,000,000 stars? Professionalism, chair-side manner, great support staff, automatic reminders via text for appointments, nice office, friendly people, gentle hands, attention to detail, never a long wait, latest tech which improves service AND helps me have less visits! If there was an award for best dentists in California this team should win it! Dr. Hatae, Dr. Hernandez and their staff are so knowledgeable and so gentle that I walk out of their office feeling like I just left a spa. Hands down the best team I’ve ever been to. I’m 35 and have had a myriad of teeth issues since I was a kid so I have seen a dozen dentists across the country. They’re the best. They also have the newest technology! I can get crowns done in less visits because they can make them there! An digital X-rays on huge flat screens so I can see all the damage I’m doing to my teeth when I eat candy (oops! ) Oh annnnnd if you tell them you’re engaged they will set you up with free whitening (well last year they did anyway I can’t say for sure the promotion is still going on)!

Professional and great customer service. Everyone working here has an upbeat personality and really makes you feel like you are a member of their family. I have been coming here for a couple years after my family dentist of 40 years retired. I could not be more satisfied with the quality and level of care I receive. State of the art technology and attention to detail. Love this dental office.

Breanna Harte (Source: Google)


Hatae family dental is one of the best dental offices I’ve been to! I live in Colorado and when I am in town I schedule all my dental work here! Dr Hernandez is so amazing, kind and gentle! I didn’t used to like going to the dentist but Dr Hernandez has changed that! The Hatae family dental office has great staff! They are very kind and attentive to you, as soon as you walk in they greet you with the lovely front office staff. When they take X-rays of your teeth they are so nice sometimes other places just shove the piece of plastic in your mouth but at Hatae dental they are so much nicer and don’t hurt you. I just love getting all my dental work here and have even referred many other friends and family! If you live near by I suggest going to Hatae Family Dental for all your dental needs!

Michael G. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing technology and pure artistry in dental care.  Dr. Hernandez used digital imaging to make a 3D model of my tooth to create a crown while I waited.  A beautiful porcelain crown with natural coloring to match my other chompers, sculpted before my eyes and permanently fixed in my mouth ready to use as I left the office less than 2 hours later.  The offices are equipped with the latest technology and staffed by highly skilled and knowledgeable practitioners.  Dr. Hernandez let’s you know exactly what’s going to happen and then keeps you informed as he goes.  Great experience.

What an EXCELLENT experience. I had been avoiding dentists for a few years due to bad experiences after moving to southern California, but not anymore! Dr. Hatae and his entire team are top notch! They use cool technology and have amazing service. I have literally never in my life had a better experience at the dentist office, from the moment I walked in the door everyone was warm and kind .Mary was my oral hygienist, she was very informative, didn’t make me feel bad for being a terrible flosser and was very gentle. If you are looking for a good family dental office, please give them a call! Thank you!

I am not a fan of going to the dentist, but I do not mind going to Coyote Hills Family Dentistry. The staff is always very friendly and happy to help, whether on the phone or in person and they genuinely care about your wellbeing. Wendy is my hygienist and has been for some time. Hopefully for as long as I have teeth, which will be forever if I keep coming here. I had a fairly long period of time where I did not go to the dentist (student with no money or insurance – grad student/over 24), but the office was super nice when I came in to get myself back in shape. Now that I’m a regular my teeth are in great shape.  The office also has all kinds of technology with instant x-rays that can anticipate any potential cavities early in the process. I also have an online profile and receive a couple of text messages to remind me of my appointments. The office is nice (looks much nicer inside than out), clean, and very spacious. Even the rooms with dental chairs have plenty of space and have televisions.

I have been coming here for years now. The waiting room is very welcoming with an aquarium that looks like a picture frame. Keurig coffee maker and small fridge full of waters. The rooms are very comfortable with multiple monitors showing X Ray’s and or movies if you are having a procedure done. The staff are all great and very fry. I would highly recommend this office!

Kerry M. from Fullerton, CA  (Source: Yelp)


My daughter was born with peg laterals; essentially very small teeth next to her two front teeth. She has been self conscious of her smile for years because of the gap created by those teeth and the smaller than average size of her permanent teeth. At 12, she was referred to Dr. Hatae at Coyote Hills Dentistry. He was able to reconstruct the peg laterals to appear natural and fill the gaps left by those smaller teeth. When we left Dr. Hatae’s office that day my daughter cried and said, “Now I don’t hate my smile. I was so insecure before.” There are no words to express my gratitude to Dr. Hatae and his team for giving my daughter a smile that she loves and that gives her confidence.

Lenny K. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the fourth dentist I’ve tried in the last 10 years, and I couldn’t have been more impressed! No “upsells”, just professional, extremely knowledgable and very kind treatment.  All the staff were warm and caring, and Dr. Hatae was amazing. I’m “dentist phobic”, and in the past have always left other dentists (no matter the procedure done) with my stomach in knots.  This was my first appointment with Dr. Hatae, and I left relaxed and ready for a nap!   Dr. Hatae was recommended to me by someone I met while walking – a chance encounter. I have never seen this person again, but truly wish I could thank her. I am so glad I made the decision to follow her advice. I have another appointment in three weeks, and don’t feel the sense of impending doom I usually encounter. What a blessing!

I have been a patient since the beginning and I simply love this dental office! The staff are so friendly and they go above and beyond! I recently had some cosmetic dental work done and Dr. Hatae wanted it to be perfect for me he kept at it until I was completely happy with the results! They are like a family to me when I go in there… is it too weird to say I actually like going to the dentist? 

Marida P. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hatte is an amazing dentist.  I can’t imagine trusting anyone else when it comes to my dental care.  He is very knowledgeable and his offices are state of the art.  My hygienist Katie makes visiting the dentist easy.  I am so appreciative for Dr. Hatte, Katie and everyone at Coyote Hills Family Dentistry.

Coyote Hills Family Dentistry is amazing! Professional yet fun staff who are so welcoming, you wouldn’t even think you’re there for the dreaded dental work. The office and equipment is modern and high end without cutting into your wallet. I also receive friendly text reminders or random openings that may work for my schedule. Talk about convenient. I recommend them to all!

My entire family is very pleased with Coyote Hills Dentistry. My husband and I, our adult children, and all our grandchildren receive kind and competent care by everyone on this team.

Ask for Dr. Chris Hatae, he’s the BEST!!! I’m a loyal patient and so is my family, including my teens….we all look forward to our visits! I personally have been treated by all of his hygentists and they are all fantastic!! My husband and I have been having some challenging/trickier work done by him and he is the guy! He explains and explains in thorough with each procedure, before, during and after. He has the cutting edge technology that gives instant and fabulous results. Most importantly, he says and backs up what he says whole heartedly. He is all about the patient as an individual, he treats me as a valued person with valuable time. I never have to wait and he gets me fit right in during his full day when I call and have an emergency! He couldn’t run his office smooth as silk though without Julie and Patty, they are exceptional!!

I’ll admit, I’m the type of patient that doesn’t like the dentist. After many years of avoiding the necessary visit I finally went to Hatae Family Dental. I’m so glad that I did for the following reasons: the staff is always friendly from the moment you walk in, the hygienist is super gentle, the billing department is extremely helpful and explains all services so I can properly bill my insurance and lastly my teeth are healthier than when I first arrive. The doctors genuinely care about you which makes your follow up appointment easier. Thank you Hatae Family Dental for helping me overcome my fear. **HIGH FIVE**

And any oral procedures needing to be done, Dr Hatae is always thorough in explaining step by step and answering any questions I might have! They have my 100% confidence and trust. Proud to recommend them to all my friends, family and colleagues!
