I have going to Dr. George Zeitoune for almost 10 years. He is a friendly and competent dentist who takes the time to explain the procedures that he recommends. In addition, his receptionist and financial manager, Stacy, is not only super friendly, but always explains the financial break down of a procedure before you OK it. I have always had a positive experience and recommend Dr. George for your dental needs.

Dr George is the only dentist I have trusted my teeth to for over 7 years.  He’s a perfectionist, he really knows what he’s doing and besides that, he’s a really nice guy! Ok, it was a Sunday and I had a serious problem. I called Dr George, he met me at the office to take care of a really big problem. You gotta love this guy really!!!!

Christopher W. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George is very calm and explains concisely, I also see him around town very often so its nice to have that “small town” feel where everyone knows everyone!!!

I can not express my feelings towards Dr George and the amazing job he did on my teeth. I have been hiding from smiling for years to avoid showing my teeth that were dark, crooked and broken. I had previous opinions from other dentists but I was always anxious to get them worked on. After getting a consultant ion with Dr George about what can be done and the way he explained to me everything I felt very comfortable to let him work on my teeth. He had such a great chair side manner and caring personality during the treatment that all really went very well. My smile is back and I feel more confident to meet and talk to people. I strongly recommend that you meet him and his great amazing team who are very caring as well and are capable to make you feel comfortable. I will bring my daughter to get checked by Dr George because she get apprehensive about seeing a dentist. Dr George Zeitoune has a great chair side manner and will take good care of her Thank you Dr George for your continuous care and bringing my smile back. I can now smile with confidence and my gum feels very healthy and does not bleed anymore after you did my gum treatment. I never felt that great.

Dazzling Smile Dental Group and Dr. George are truly gems! I’m sad to see the bad reviews, as clearly these individuals have a hidden agenda. Dr. George made sure I understood every step of the process and work being done, in addition to explaining things to me as we went along. He and his staff are honest and fair. On top of being an excellent dentist who truly cares about the health of his patients, Dr. George is also a very kind man. Funny how the one star reviewers are shocked that a dental procedure hurt (obviously, is it supposed to be absolutely pain free? what an asinine thing to comment on).

Ebarsm Z. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


We had a very pleasant experience with Dr. George and his staff. I was very anxious about the appointment and any procedure, but Dr. George was very patient with me and spent a lot of time trying to make me comfortable and calm, Stacy (front office) was very helpful, kind and very professional, Dr.george always takes his time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice , It’s not easy to find a good dentist, I highly recommend Dr.George for you guys

Lisa K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. George for over 8 years. In that time, he has consistently provided excellent care of my teeth. A few years ago, I had a piece of a tooth come out while I was eating steak on a Friday night.  He adjusted his schedule to repair my tooth the next day. In addition, he takes the time to answer all my questions and concerns.   He is personable and makes me laugh.  The office manager, Stacey, is highly efficient and friendly, as well.

Cobi F. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George has been the best dentist that I have been to and I would recommend him to anyone. He is very smart and will help you decide what the best decisions are for your gums and teeth. I’ve had nothing but the best experience every time I’ve been there.

Lydia B. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr George is wonderful. The best dentist I’ve been to including pediatric dentists.
He has seen all 4 of my kids ages 22-14 and handled each one wonderfully.
I have been to the office many many times with each of my kids and each visit is pleasant, I actually look forward to it… imagine that!The entire staff has been warm, friendly and professional. I would recommend Dr George to my closest friends and family!Did I mention he’s hilarious? What a sense of humor! He makes the entire experience enjoyable!

Lorena G. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Geoge is an outstanding dentist.  I have had issues with a prior root canal and he was the first dentist to point out the problem.  He also knew right off the bat that I needed some other treatment done that others had never mentioned.  He understands my financial situation and has given me various options on how to save some money.  He is very patient and thorough, he explains everything to me.  His receptionist Stacey is the best, I call her all the time to clarify a few questions I have.  She always does a great job and is also very patient.  🙂 I would recommend anyone here 🙂

Candace C. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wouldn’t trust my teeth to anyone but Dr. George. I fly in from Hong Kong just to have Dr. George treat me. He calms any nerves I have and takes brilliant care. He is efficient and precise in his work. I now have a smile I didn’t think I could have. His team is fantastic as well. Very informative and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. George to everyone.

Robbie G. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tarek was genuinely caring when I came in with severe gum infection. I had bad breath every morning and I could tell I needed a cleaning ASAP. The doctor gave a very thorough exam using a digital x ray and a deep clean the same day. The doctor gave me a fair discount since I am a graduate student. The doctor prioritized caring for my health over a profit which made me feel cared for. It was more expensive then I had planned on spending for a cleaning, but was worth it given his thoroughness. I now know exactly the state of the health of my teeth, gum infection is cured, and he gave me aftercare products. The person taking the x rays was quick so as to minimize discomfort during the x ray and procedure. Dr. Tarek asked if I was OK during the procedure and I was. The assistant during the cleaning was really good at suctioning because I did not even have one instant of my gag reflex triggered as he was quick and efficient.  I will be back given the intelligent, caring, and quality service that Dr. Tarek provided during this visit.

DR. GEORGE ZEITOUNE IS THE BEST DENTIST I HAVE EVER BEEN TO! I have been going to Dr. Zeitoune (I call him Dr. George) for over two years now. He is gentle and always takes his time explaining to me what I need and how he is going to accomplish my treatment. I have been to several dentists in the past and have never felt as comfortable as I do with Dr. George. I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone. Dr.George and his staff make my dental appointments a pleasant experience…and that is not easy to accomplish. I LOVE this dentist!

Lisa K. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. George for over 12 years. During that time, Dr. George has provided consistent high quality dental care. He always takes the time carefully explain the procedure and gives me options and timelines for my treatment. In addition, he has a great sense of humor and makes me feel completely comfortable. In addition, the office manager, Stacy, is so friendly and is able to answer my healthcare financial questions. Overall, Dr. George and his staff offer highly competent, professional, and friendly service and I highly recommend them to Anthony who might need their services.

Dean W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George and his staff are simply amazing!!! They have raised the bar so high by their professionalism,  courtesy, caring, honesty, and customer service. There is a lot of good dentists out there but trust me you will not find someone as caring, honest and enjoys his work like Dr. George you can tell by the way he explains and do his work that he really enjoys his work, I literally know Dr. George for over 18 years I followed him from one practice to another till he decided to devote all of his time for his faithful clients, I will not trust anyone else with my dental work… He is also great with the little ones Both My 13 and my 10 years old kids don’t mind at all going to Dr. George He definitely knows how to make them comfortable and laugh… :-)My 10-year-old chipped his front teeth and I took him to Dr. George same day he fixed it I swear till now it’s hard for me to tell which one he worked on he’s that good!!! Also I have to mention that his office manager Stacy one of the most polite professional office manager you will ever find.

Dr. George and his staff are always helpful and thorough! I always leave the office with beautiful pearly whites. I would highly recommend this dentist to everyone looking for a knowlegable dentist!

Helena N. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I broke a tooth, called last minute and was able to get in right away. Dr. George carefully examined my teeth and told me exactly what needed to be done. I was able to get it done the same day and he was able to fix my tooth with a filling instead of a crown, which was more cost effective and less time consuming. My new filling feels and looks great. The office staff was amazing

Dr. George is a very good dentist, he caught things my previous dentist missed. Very friendly and informative which I like.

Dr. George is an excellent dentist, he really cares about his patients. He is extremely thorough and explains everything as he goes. I would definitely recommend them to all my friends and family.

Mona A. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my follow up visit today and like all my previous experiences at this office it was very pleasant. Dr. George Is thorough and always takes his time. The office is beautiful and his staff are so accommodating. My teeth look and feel great thanks to Dr. George at Dazzling Smile Dental. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for quality dentistry

Kevin C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George at Dazzling Smile Dental is amazing. I had been seeing my previous dentist for many years until he stopped taking my insurance. I scheduled a visit with Dr. George and he was phenomenal.  I had undiagnosed periodontal disease which I had no idea I had. Dr. George spent a lot of time with me showing me pictures of my gums and explained what was going on and how the best way to treat my condition. Doctor performed a deep cleaning and also used a laser in order to get the best results. After my treatment my mouth incredible. I no longer have bleeding. My bad breath is gone and now that I know how to brush and floss correctly I feel like my oral hygiene is better than ever. I also had a chipped tooth that Dr. George fixed and it looks perfect. The staff was extremely kind and accommodating and the office was modern and clean. I highly reccomend Dr. George at Dazzling Smile Dental.

Mary Jane Black C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was my first appointment with this dentist.  I was very impressed with everything about my visit. The staff and the doctor were friendly, kind and patient as I asked many question. I felt right at home. The doctor took his time to explain everything to me so I understood what was going on and, he went out of his way to make sure I was comfortable and not in any pain. I am very happy with the care I was given and trust that he will continue to keep my mouth in good health and my smile beautiful. If you’re looking for an honest and professional dentist, one who will take good care of you, I would recommend you make an appointment with Dr. George at Dazzling Smile Dental Group in Costa Mes

Ron H. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for my check up with Dr. George and I mentioned that I was experiencing some bleeding while flossing and my gums were a little sensitive. Dr. George did a thorough exam and gave me a deep cleaning, he took his time and did an excellent job. After my procedure I am no longer experiencing any bleeding and my teeth feel so clean. I also had a cavity filled and like all of my previous dental work that Dr. George has done it feels great. Dr. took extra time to show me how to improve my brushing and flossing and he really makes me feel like he truly cares about my oral health. The office is clean. The staff is kind and accommodating and I’m so happy I have found a dentist that does such great work

I wanted to share my experiences that I have had over the years with Dr. George and Stacy here at Dazzling Smile. Stacy has the most pleasant personality and is always so helpful with any concerns I have. As far as Dr. George…very caring doctor who listens so very carefully with any problem that you are having. Dr. George goes the extra step explaining any questions that may arise. He truly cares about his patient’s well being. A few years ago I was having severe pain
with an extracted tooth. I called Dr. George on his cell phone. He had me meet him at the clinic. It was a Sunday afternoon.  He took care of the problem any the pain was gone. Excellent people…excellent care!

Jamie T. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had some serious gum issues and Dr George took great care of me. His office staff are very polite and professional. When I go to my appointments I know I am going to get excellent service and some great comedy from Dr. George. I recommend him especially to those with complex conditions.

Aly I. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George is one of the best dentists I worked with. The clinic is very neat and super clean, staff very professional. In addition to regular check ups and cleaning, I had to do a root canal. The procedure was flawless and completely painfree. Overall, it is a great experience

Zaia Y. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George reconstructed one of my teeth that had little bone left on it.  All other dentists had given up and wanted me to get an implant immediately.  However, Dr. George informed me that he will fix it but it is considered a temporary fix.  Well it has been over one year and the tooth is still doing very well thanks to the great job and efforts that Dr. George did.  Dr. George is very professional and has a great clinic conveniently located in East Costa Mesa.  I highly trust and recommend Dr. George.

Travis C. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George is the best dentist that I have ever met in my entire life. Before going to Dazzling Smile, I had been suffering from a severe pain in the back of my mouth, specifically around my wisdom teeth. Naturally, I wanted to find relief, so I visited many other dentists in search of a proper diagnosis and a list of potential options. After going through the other dentists, they came to the conclusion that they would have to remove my wisdom teeth in order to stop the pain. So, they typed up the estimated cost, complete with an anesthesiologist and expensive professional equipment. Their treatment option would have ended up costing around $3000. But then, a miracle happened. I paid a visit to Dr. George and he looked at my teeth. Instantly he knew what was wrong. The problem wasn’t my wisdom teeth at all, it was periodontitis. In a matter of minutes, Dr. George CORRECTLY diagnosed my problem, while the other dentists completely MISDIAGNOSED it! So, with the help of Dr. George’s expertise, my pain began to subside very quickly. After he had worked on my mouth for only ONE session, my pain was alleviated 100%. Dazzling Smile is amazing, and simply put, Dr. George is a professional. If you are seeking an incredible dentist, along with quality and affordable service, then this is the place for you!

If you are looking for a good dentist then I strongly would reccomend Dr. Zeitoune at Dazzling Smile Dental. I have been a patient at Dazzling Smile Dental for over 6 years and now my entire family has also become patients of Dr. George. The office is beautiful and it’s very clean. The staff is great but the best part is the dental work. I have had all my dental work done at Dazzling Smile and have always been so happy with the results. My dad has never been able to get a good pair of dentures untill he went to see Dr. Zeitoune…for the first time in over 20 years my dad can actually eat what he wants and his dentures look great. My mom has had her dental work done there and now my sister, her children and my cousin. Great dental work and very nice atmospher at Dazzling Smile Dental. I stronlgy recommend this dental office.

Tina N. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a fairly new patient at Dazzling Smile, and overall I’m very pleased.  The staff is always attentive to my wishes on how I would like to proceed with my dental care.  Dr. George takes the time to explain everything very clearly, and I like that he doesn’t immediately reach for the needle to numb my entire face for every treatment.  Most treatments are performed with a swab and numbing gel.  Additionally, Stacy has been very helpful in attempting to get an oral surgeon referral from Delta Dental for me, although Delta has proven to be a pain in rear, her efforts are appreciated.  2 thumbs up!

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


Dr. George is amazing not to mention his work. I have been a client of Dazzling Smile for years and continue to be loyal due to the type of results Dr provides Dr. George is passionate and professional; he knows his business and takes the time to learn his patients needs to provide the type of service and quality work he provides. I have tried other dental practices and continue to come back become no one seems to provide me with the level of work De George provides. You are in good hands at dazzling smile and I would recommend my friends and family all the time. Thank you Dr. George for your work and your passion for your services you provide. You are amazing.

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


Dr. George did it again. 🙂 My annual check-up was a fun and enjoyable time. Dr. George is very knowledgeable and kind and makes going to the dentist a fun experience.  I am very satisfied with the service and his expertise. Thank you and see you at my visit.

Ayon P. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I usually dread going to the dentist, but Dr. George makes me feel at ease. I came in for a cleaning. The staff was great, I easily was able to check-in, no trouble. I waited a decent amount of time before heading in. His dental assistant Ashli was also very nice. I had no problem with this office, thank you for making my time worthwhile! I will be seeing you soon.

Devi A. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. George for about two years now. He has done a lot for me from cleanings to crowns and cavities and his work is amazing! His staff is also very friendly and caring. Would highly recommend Dr. George and his staff!

Diane N. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. George has been my dentist since 1999.  I have moved with him to every location because he is a perfectionist.  He wants your teeth to look great but he also wants to make sure you have healthy teeth and gums.  He loves his job and it shows in his work and how he takes care of his patients.  Stacey in the front office is amazing.  She is organized, efficient, warm, and friendly.  I highly recommend Dr. George and his office.
