I have a fear of going to the dentist.  I had work done in the past to get a white smile and unfortunately it was not done correctly which has cause my bite to be off, nerve damage to my tongue, gaps in my crowns and even speaking problems.   Now am trying to get my teeth/mouth healthy and have realized the hard way that not all dentists are the same.   Finding one that is detailed (I believe a perfectionist – thank you Dr Dapper!)  and truly cares about doing the very best for their patients has been hard to find.   Dr Dapper took very good care of me and really has taken his time to do it right (which takes more time/money from him), with his attention to detail.   He and his awesome staff are great communicators and made me feel comfortable especially with my fears and very sensitive mouth.   Thank you Dr Dapper for caring so much about what you do and how you do it.   I am very excited to have a healthy smile and bite – I am in awe of you!

Dr Dapper and ALL his office staff are amazing. Great job on my crown. He is friendly and skilled. Dr Dapper is also very honest and knowledgeable. He has displayed his expertise while helping my husband with some extensive dental work.

Dr. William Dapper is the best dentist ever. He takes a lot of pride in his work. He always does the extreme best job he possibly can. He is very talented. I have been going to him for over 30 years. He did a great job for my daughter who was born with a Bilateral clef lip and palate. He changed her bridge to individual teeth. He is outstanding. He always does a great job for

Dr. Dapper has been our dentist for a long time. He was my Dad’s dentist, my brother’s dentist, my dentist and now my kids dentist.
He is skilled, efficient and his work lasts. But it’s his friendly manner and easy going personality that really keeps us coming back. Come for the toothache; Stay for the banter. He’s pretty awesome

I just hope he never retires or moves. Best dentist in the world.

Have been seeing Dr Dapper for over 25 years.  Both of my children were seen by him during their entire childhoods.  He is extremely professional, knowledgeable and caring.  On top of all  that his staff is phenomenal.  You won’t find a better run practice anywhere is So Cal.

I came here as a 2nd opinion , my crown fell off , and I went to the first dentist and he told me that I needed to have an implant..and that I had a bad infection.. I walked out with the crown in my hand. I called my husband and he told me about dr. Dapper .. I talked to a lovely girl on the phone and she squeezed me in that day, I came in and the dental assistant was so friendly and made me feel comfortable .. Dr dapper came in and checked out my tooth and said it was bad he cleaned out my tooth and made sure I wasn’t having any pain and gave me meds to fix my issue , I have an appt to fix my issue ,. He was so nice and helped me right there .. I highly recommend him if you don’t have a dentist you love..

Teeth and crowns look perfect and fit together perfectly. Care of patients is a priority as well as their comfort. I feel very fortunate to have Dr. Dapper as well as his finely groomed crew treat me.

Amazing dentist, AMAZING CREW!!! If you’ve never been to see Dr. Dapper you should go just to meet the ladies who really run the place. Nice people, considerate, thoughtful, and just a lot of fun to hang around with. They make going to the dentist fun again!

Dr. Dapper is extraordinary; the absolute best dentist you could ever meet. Can’t say enough about him!

Dr dapper is professional, skilled and has an excellent bedside manner. I’m extremely scared of shots and haven’t felt one that he has given me yet. You definitely get what you pay for. Five stars for sure.

I was in so much pain and needed an emergency root canal, and Dr. Dapper and his expert team came to my rescue! I was nervous because it was my first root canal, but everyone treated me with kindness and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire experience. Somehow, they turned an unpleasant experience into a pleasant one, and I have since been going to his practice for all my dental needs. Dr. Dapper is truly a dentist you can trust and his staff really cares, they will answer all of your questions and make you feel at home. Highly recommend!

Dr.Dapper is the most talented dentist I have ever known. He genuinely cares about his patients and goes above and beyond to get incredible results. Not all dentists have the background and knowledge that he has or the eye and artistry to make your teeth look their best. He is a perfectionist and I highly recommend him.

There are not enough words to describe my feelings and appreciation for Dr. Dapper.
He is by far the most amazing dentist I have ever met. I have met many over the years.
He is kind, patient, gentle, explains what, why and how he has to do a certain procedure.
I have done everything from implants, root canals, cavities, cosmetic dentistry ( he’s the best) to fighting off periodontal issues.
He also gives the best novocaine shots ever!
I drive from the San Fernando Valley to San Clemente on I -5 South, about 150 miles round trip for my dental appointments.
That in itself should tell you how good Dr. Dapper is.
He and his entire staff are a pleasure.

Today I had an emergency, my tooth had broken and Dr Dapper was completely booked. The staff was able to get me in within 2 hours. Last year I was a horrible car accident and had scheduled to have my teeth cleaned but was unable to since I was in the hospital. My brother cancelled the appointment for me. Then every once in awhile I would receive a call just checking on me. The staff is amazing and I trust Dr Dapper since he communicates the options prior to being stuck with a procedure you didn’t want.

By far, the BEST DENTIST I have ever had!!! Can’t thank you all enough!!!

Dr. Dapper is great. I went to him convinced I needed to have a tooth extracted and an implant. He sent me to (specialist dentist), an endodontist he collaborates with, and together they came up with a plan to save the tooth. Another endodontist would not do a root canal on this tooth, but (the specialist) took the time to really work to save it. Yesterday I went back to Dr. Dapper for some additional work on another tooth, and he and his office were very professional and friendly, putting you at ease in an environment we’d all rather not be in. I am so glad a friend of mine recommended him to me. Dr. Dapper really is the best.

Marci S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long over due!  I have been going to Dr Dapper for over 25 years.  He’s the best dentist hands down.  His attention to detail and knowledge is exemplary.  He did my veneers and I get nothing but compliments.  I always know that he will recommend the best procedures for my individual needs; since he always keeps up with latest technology and the latest dental innovations.  My family and friends are all very happy with Dr. Dapper’s care.

Dr. Dapper and his staff are awesome!!! His office manager Rosa is the bomb! Dr. Dapper is so gentle when working on you. He wants stuff perfect and he wants to know if something freaks you out or hurts you. I usually get major anxiety at the dentist, he is the first dentist that I don’t get it with. My husband just went to him and he couldn’t stop saying what a nice guy he was and what a great dentist he is. I drive 45
minutes to get to him, he’s that amazing!!!! I can’t recommend him enough!

Friendly doctor and staff. I recommend to all

Danny M. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Honestly I couldn’t be happier with my choice of pick. I came in here with an emergency with a tooth ache walked in no appointment or anything and they took me in no problem. From the front desk to the doctor to the assistants they were all great. I wish I could give more then five stars. Thank you guys.

Mark M. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a doctor myself I am utterly delighted with the expert care I received from Dr Dapper and his thoughtful and caring staff.

Tina Jenkins (Source: Google)


Dr. Dapper and staff go the extra mile for their patients. Their professionalism made my daughter’s dental experience wonderful. We felt that we got special treatment, and I suspect that every patient feels the same way. Dr. Dapper explained all of our options and patiently listened and responded to my daughter’s requests. My only regret is not moving to this office sooner.

Dr Dapper & staff are the best! I’ve been going to him for years! Most people probably wouldn’t say they enjoy going to the dentist, but I at least don’t dread it & they always take special care of me. Highly recommend.

Dr. Dapper is the only dentist we trust. In fact, we fly from Colorado to San Clemente just to see him. Is work is the very best. He is a great Dentist who cares about his patients and provides great work the first time.

Dr. Bill Dapper and his staff will give you the most thorough, honest, friendly and professional dental work you can find. They are the BEST!

There is no one better than Dr. Dapper and his staff. They are caring compassionate, and pain free. I really hate going to the dentist but Dr. Dapper has made it so easy for me to go regularly. His staff is the best.

Randy Bassitt (Source: Google)


Not only is Dr. Dapper far above 5 stars in expertise in dentistry, he is a compassionate and caring gentleman. I was in need of extensive dental work while in CA and spent about 12 hours in his care. I was a stranger to him and he fit me into his very busy schedule. He solved a long time sinus and head pain health issue that was connected to my teeth that no other doctor or dentist could solve. I am so grateful to have found him. His staff also are 5 stars!

Dr. Dapper and his amazing staff have been our family dentist for over 15 years. When I first met Dr. Dapper, my teeth were in a bad way and I had issues with eating as a result. Dr. Dapper had to reconstruct all upper and lower teeth due to years of pour dentistry and bad genetics. His work included; placing two implants, replacing 12 crowns, performed a sinus lift & bone graph and in addition, restored my smile using veneers . Because of his work quality and amazing chair-side manner, I knew I was in good hands. In the end, he gave me a smile to be proud of, restored a normal chewing ability and over all improving my quality of life Dr. Dapper is TOP NOTCH! I highly recommend him.

I love my dentist! I have been traveling from HB for 20+ years to see only him! He has an amazing staff that are very helpful and will always work with your schedule.
Dr Dapper is very gentle and takes great care of my teeth. I had to do several fillings today and he left me feeling no pain and my teeth look great.
