Amazing! I was looking last year for a holistic minded dentist for major work on my teeth. After hours and hours of searching and speaking to offices mainly in (different area), I found Dr Son. His prices were much better than the holistic dentists in (other regions) and his attention to detail and kind heart put me at ease.
I literally almost fell asleep while having a crown put in, it was that pleasant. (I used the gas and the mouth piece that rests gently to keep mouth open while they work and act as a suction. It’s a genius invention that I haven’t seen at other offices I consulted with.)
His office staff and assistants are top notch and the hygienist corrected me on several habits no other hygienist had addressed in detail which I know will save my teeth from future work.
I suggest getting in with them before they become to hard to get a new patient appt. (That’s what happened with my holistic Endocrinoligist;)
Thanks Dr Son!

Dr. David Son and his entire staff are sensational and one of a kind. They are very professional; but at the same time, caring and understanding. The technology they use is incredible. I am a 55 year old woman who was born without 6 of my permanent teeth and because of this most of my teeth are capped and are over 26 years old. When I had my first consultation with Dr. David Son, I was suffering from an infection caused by a root canal. He informed me how bad infected root canals and metal fillings are and what I needed to do to have healthier teeth and gums. He explained to me that what was most important was to decide what to fix first and a plan on accommodating my budget. I ended up having 4 of my front teeth pulled and 2 implants put in. I do not like having my teeth drilled, but Dr. David Son’s mastery was remarkable and painless. He also took a sample of my blood before the procedure and put it in a machine to make stems cells from. He used the stem cells to help my gums heal faster. Also,  during the whole process ozone water was used. While waiting for my implants to heal, he had a temporary made for me to wear which is gorgeous. My experience so far has been wonderful and I even had my teeth clean last week with April, a Hygienist, which was amazing too.

I found a new biological holistic dentist, dr David Son. Had my second visit and my teeth feel great … very thorough cleaning and gum treatment. If your looking for a new dentist I highly recommend him.

What will likely matter most to people, Dr. Son is the absolute best at making sure you feel ZERO pain. His numbing process is the equivalent of breathing. You just don’t know when the process has started and then your gums are numb. Sounds to good to be true. That’s the feeling I get every single time I go through the process.
Dr. Son is very patient and genuinely gives off a positive comforting energy.
I’ve been maybe 7 times and each time I leave grateful.

My entire family has been going to Dr. Son and his staff for about 10 years and I have nothing but good things to say about the office. Aside from the general dentistry they have come through in those times when we had emergencies (i.e. one of our boys knocked his tooth out, etc.) and got the situation handled on off hours. Dr. Son is a nice guy and his staff is exceptional.

Always have a great experience at Dr. Son’s office. The staff truly care about your oral health and have given me a lot of great home care tips. They are very careful and thorough and can’t recommend them highly enough.

James A. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I usually dread going to the dentist, but Dr. Son and his staff always put me at ease. The employees and hygienists always make you feel welcome, not to mention that they do an excellent job on your teeth! I’ve had everything from implants, cleaning, and whitening done by Dr. Son and I always walk out satisfied. This is the place to go in Irvine.

Sandra L. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


We moved across country 2 years ago and I really wanted a homeopathic dentist, so any work and care would be done safely. Dr. David Son is the closest to that in our area. (He is a biological dentist.) You can tell that he really cares about his patients’ health. He is gentle, efficient, and makes every attempt for work to be painless. He treats both myself and my 2 kids. The front desk staff is super nice and helpful as well. They really take the time to explain the process and make sure you understand the procedure and costs involved. We love the hygienists as well. All super sweet and gentle. I love how they take the time to really explain to the kids (and give me an update) what’s working and where there is room for improvement. Great experiences overall.

Dava M. from Laguna Woods, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had two crowns replaced this week by Dr Son. The experience was fantastic. The first appointment was completely painless, which is a MIRACLE when having dental treatment done! I had “temporary” crowns that were comfortable and functional that I wore for a little over two weeks. Then I went back for another appointment to have the real crowns put on. Another painless appointment. (Thanks Dr Son!)  My new crowns are gorgeous. They are beautiful and they feel like my teeth, a perfect fit!
I can honestly say I love seeing my dentist! Dr Son is a ninja-master of dentistry and he does Biological treatment which is so much healthier for his patients. His staff are so friendly and professional, it’s like visiting friends whenever I’m there. I recommend everyone I know to Dr Son!

Alexander H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really dislike going to the dentist, but Dr. David Son and his staff are wonderful! Everyone is always happy, and that makes me as a patient, very comfortable. For the most part, I try to avoid the dentist unless there is something seriously wrong with my teeth, but now I go every couple months on the dot for a routine cleaning. I have had work done by almost every hygienist there and they are all fantastic. I highly recommend this establishment.

Alex Ham (Source: Google)


Always a pleasant experience! I’ve had my wisdom teeth taken out here, and I’ve also had implants done, and of course routine cleanings. Dr. Son and his staff make you feel at home when I usually get anxiety from visiting other dentists. I actually look forward to visiting Dr. Son and his staff for my routine cleanings!

Dr. Son was an answer to a prayer for me.  As I was traveling full time across the country,  I experienced a major tooth ache and needed immediate attention.  After visiting with 2 other local dentist in (a different) area, both of which highly recommended a root canal, Dr. Son saved the tooth by suggesting Ozone therapy. My pain went away after one day and my tooth isn’t compromised with foreign materials and the traumatic effects of a root canal.  Terry at the front desk was also a very informed resource in helping me understand my options before I met with Dr. Son, and she worked with me to fit me Into their very busy schedule.  If I lived in the surrounding Irvine area, my entire family would be regular patients of Dr. Son. I highly recommend his office.

Joe M. from Brighton, United Kingdom (Source: Yelp)


Dr Son made a new snore guard for me and I couldn’t be happier. He guided me to go with the latest technology which is double hinged and extremely comfortable to wear.  It has been very effective in providing a more restful sleep for myself as well as my wife!

Dr Son was wonderful in the selection of the correct device, making the molds and the final fitting.  I highly recommend him and his entire staff from reception to assistant!

Matt R. from Apex, NC (Source: Yelp)


Came here for a cleaning and to replace an amalgam filling with a composite.  Dr. Son and his staff couldn’t have been nicer, taking the time to understand my needs and explaining the treatment approach and answering all my questions. I feel that they genuinely care for your well-being and take the time to do a thorough job that will last, rather than a quick fix like some other dentists.  Also learned a lot from Dr. Son.  I will definitely be coming back.

Joy C. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit with Dr. Son and I had an amazing experience. I was greeted and taken Back immediately! Nancy preformed a deep cleaning and ensured my comfort throughout the visit. Dr Son did a precise examination which I had never experienced at the dentist before. My overall experience was commendable and I recommend Dr Son to all Family and friends looking for amazing dental work.

Jen H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend Dr. Son’s office. Dr. Son does great work and is thorough with his exams.  Terry and office staffs are phenomenal. I had an emergency where my filling came off. I couldn’t wait a day or two since I had work. They were so accommodating, I was seen on the same day after they shifted their appointments around. I am forever grateful!!

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


Dr. Son & his office staff are professional from head to toe! From the moment you walk in the door you feel welcomed, informed, cared for, and appreciated. I would highly recommend Dr. Son’s office to anyone who want’s exceptional dental care!!

Sherry P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Son is the BEST, most committed to quality dentist I have ever had. He just removed all of the metal in my mouth and restored my teeth over four visits. I had my prior, non-biologic dentist in Newport Beach replace all of my amalgams a couple of years ago, but recent blood work came back showing high mercury. I thought maybe I had ingested some during the process, and I also saw that I had one amalgam filling left behind. I sought a biologic dentist to remove that one filling.

Dr. Son’s X-rays clearly showed remnants of amalgam in other teeth and also nickel in my crowns. I wanted it all out. He painstakingly removed all of the metal and restored my teeth, in a biologically safe way. Taking extra time and care, he also removed decay under long-time crowns and saved my teeth without damaging the root. He is thorough, loves teaching, too, and explained every step. He did nothing without my permission, and he was gentle throughout the process.

He also has the latest equipment, including films to watch during extensive work, which truly eased the process. His office staff is also kind, cheerful, and helpful. Although it was a rigorous process, I feel great about the quality work and service I received. I am sending my husband there next.

Mark A. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long and well over due! I should start by thanking the staff and Dr. Son for the amazing work he continues to give my entire family and I! From preventive care to restorative and my Botox! My kids love coming here, even though it’s not a totally kid friendly office. The gals in the front are so sweet every time they come in even if they don’t have an appointment. A treasure box and sugar free suckers! When I got my implant it was so painless and Dr. Son used a laser. That was pretty cool! You can honestly tell that Dr. Son loves his job and his staff loves every patient. I can’t believe they remember all my stories I tell them and my families names! I can honestly say I like and love coming to this office. I feel like family and truly appreciate the attention to detail I get and the state of the art care I get at this office without breaking the bank!

Janet K. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Son is gentle and skilled. Every single interaction with staff is friendly, polite and timely. I first saw Dr. Son over 2 years ago. He recommended a radically different protocol than any other dentist. Dr. Son patiently explained the importance of the protocol and then explained it all over again 2 years later. Last week I sat in the chair for over 3 hours to complete the first half. As soon as the numbing wore off I began to chew on my left side for the first time in so many years that I am having to reeducate myself how to do it. The physical benefits are profoundly rewarding and the emotional relief of knowing I finally found a dentist with whom I can trust is priceless (…)

Joe Mcbride (Source: Google)


Dr Son is a very skilled and knowledgeable dentist. Better yet, he is friendly and you can tell he cares. His staff all made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. From the moment I came in for my first visit 4 years ago I knew I had found a great office that I could count on for my dental care.

Cathie Henderson (Source: Google)


Love the great dental care and excellent ethical practice! I’m so glad I found this place!
Dr Son is a true professional. He cares about your needs and your comfort, and the office staff and hygienist are amazing too

Huy-Anh H. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


For 4 months, I have been struggling with an unknown facial infection. I couldn’t open my mouth(max len. 2in) and my jaw on the right side swelled to the size of large strawberry. Since then, I’ve been to 6 other doctors and none of them could explain my condition nor prescribe me treatment. I’ve been on antibiotics and tried many options, but none of them were solutions.

Just three weeks ago, my dad did some searching and we found Dr. Son’s office after getting a CT scan. I was diagnosed with actinomycosis. We heard about how the doctor uses ozone to treat various conditions, so we thought we’d give it a try.

Amazingly enough, after just the second day, my swelling went down and I could open my mouth a little bit more. After the fourth day I could open it up an inch and a half! If I were religious I’d say that this was a miracle. 🙂

Additionally, the doctor’s technique for injection was extremely painless. He numbs you up before treatment, but even the process of putting the needle in doesn’t hurt at all.

All in all, if it were possible I would give this place 5000/5. Friendly, caring staff, superb dentist, this place has it all. Anyone struggling with a case similar to mine should definitely check out David Son, DDS.

Michael D. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had several dentists over last few years and was very fortunate to find Dr. Son who I put my faith into solve my dental issues. I had 3 hour procedure with Dr. Son and his assistant and felt that they went out of their way to explain exactly what they were doing as it was happening. I felt no pain with the extraction or the implants and at last feel I have solved a potential big health issue. Thanks Dr. Son for a great job .

Thomas I. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Son has been taking care of my teeth for over 10 years, so it’s crazy that I haven’t sat down to write him and his staff a review. They are really amazing, he cares about my teeth and my safety and has been training and educating himself in natural and safe ways to take care of his patients .

I always make an appointment and they are on time, smiling and ready to help me. I think that the prices are good, I don’t have dental insurance, so I pay out of my pocket and I’m happy with the service I receive vs. the price I pay.

Thank you Dr. Son for keeping my smile beautiful!!

Jake C. from Norco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit yesterday, and it was amazing. Dr. Son and his staff have a great way of explaining dental treatment. I came home for the holidays from Delaware and his front office staff was able to accommodate my crazy schedule, while I am in town.
I was referred by a friend that goes to this office and I am so happy I made the drive because it was well worth it. I was able to have my teeth cleaned, digital x-rays, exam and some decay removed in the same day with out a hassle. There was no “selling” here like I have experienced in the past at other offices, and they cared about what my goal was. Dr. Son’s skills are very high! He discovered that my last dentist didn’t fill a few of my teeth properly that could have caused decay under my fillings, thank goodness he found them. He showed me in the x-rays and photos of my teeth, exactly what he was talking about!
I highly recommend anyone go here! You will not be let down!

We have been going to this dentist for many years and have always had a great experience. They are professional and kind and always get the job done. The technicians are really gentle with your teeth and nice to talk with. We will be coming back!

Howard G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have gone to numerous dentists over the years yet never one like Dr. David Son and that is why I am writing this review.
Earlier this year I needed emergency care for an infected tooth.  I called in the morning and was told to come right in. They took care of me immediately and spent the time needed to successfully complete their work.  Also, I just received a cleaning and it was actually a pleasant experience.  All of the nervousness I used to have about going to the dentist is gone!
The staff and state of the art equipment give them the ability to take care of the needs of their patients. Dr. Son’s knowledge of dentistry is amazing. He has suggested and done work for me and I will go nowhere else.  
Finally, I want to say for anyone wanting a dental experience that will exceed your expectation, call Dr.Son.

Steve Y. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


THE FIRST CLASS BIOLOGICAL DENTIST PERIOD!! Dr. Son’s dentistry is impeccable and his staff is most amazing. They are in a different league. I feel very blessed to have found him, recommended by my most trusted physician. Owing to Dr.Son’s skillful dentistry and use of OZONE, I now have healthy mouth with no missing tooth. Thank you so much, Dr. Son and his wonderful staff!

Haeyoung H. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I flew (a long distance) to see Dr. Son as I had more than a few dental and medical issues. My friend from Newport Beach has been raving about him, and she had convinced me to make an appointment with Dr. Son who practices holistic dentistry. At first appointment, I was convinced that I made a right decision. He is not only an expert on dentistry, but has a vast knowledge on naturopathic medicine. I have never met more caring doctor than Dr. Son. He removed all my mercury fillings safely with special equipment and I was wearing an oxygen mask throughout the procedures to prevent from inhaling mercury. It is amazing how good I feel after removing all the mercury in my mouth. Thank you so much Dr. Son and his wonderful staff! I will not hesitate to fly over again for any dental care in the future. It was more than worthwhile.

Agustin G. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just came in to get a wisdom tooth extracted after my routine bi-yearly cleaning and I must say… wow!
The most painless and easy procedure I’ve ever had done. The cleaning is always fantastic but the extraction was flawless. The good doctor might as well be a magician! He walked me though what was going to happen and then began. Before I knew it… DONE! Couldn’t be any happier. If you need dental work, definitely come here! Good work, good people, good service. Till next time!

Amy M. from Laguna Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Son and his staff are always so welcoming, accommodating, friendly and professional. They make me feel like family when I go in for an appointment. Dr. Son is always so thorough in his exams of my teeth and mouth that I’m confident any health issues that may arise would be caught quickly by him and his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Son and his staff.

Alex H. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr son is the best dentist I’ve ever had experience with . He has excellent bed side manner and is so sincere with his approach. The office does not try to up sell you , they instead developed a plan that was affordable and effective. I’m so thankful I found him and really value his sincerity and skill .

Duane van Heerden (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Son and his team for 10 years – and I can’t see myself ever wanting to find another dentist. Dr son and his team are always professional, always on time and the experience of perfection is bar none.

Tara H. from Anaheim Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I can honestly tell you that he has gentle hands, makes sure you’re completely numb before drilling, talks with you and explains what he’s doing throughout the procedure and he does have a good sense of humor. I haven’t experienced any unbearable pain after a procedure; but he offers his after hour contact info in case something was to happen.

Since my first few major repair visits, I have gone back for routine cleanings and x-rays, nothing else has popped up since and no repair has been needed on the work that he has done! To me that’s quite a testimony to his expertise and follow up care that I do at home now.

Bottom line: I would recommend anyone and everyone to Dr. Son. He isn’t cheap; but he is worth every penny!
