Marie S. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Patel for 4 years now at the Laguna Niguel office. I have had 5 implant surgeries with Dr. Patel. I have bad teeth like my parents and implants have just been great for me.  Dr. Patel did an excellent job. I have had zero problems. One implant is on a front tooth. The tooth and the color looks great. I’m so happy with my teeth (…). Dr. Patel is an excellent dentist.

I was first introduced to Dental 2000 from my friend Narat & they advertise in the local newspaper. I was looking into getting a implant for myself & my fiance. Dental 2000 has a wonderful staff! Doctor Patel really took his time to thoroughly explain the entire dental implant process. He is very knowledgeable and his staff is the best! The entire office really goes above and beyond for you. If you need a dental implant don’t hesitate to call them, Theresa their front office is such a doll! Thank you dental 2000 for giving me my smile 😉 back!

I have had a wonderful experience with Dr. Patel at Dental 2000. I go to his clinic for my routine dental checkups, and when I had a dental emergency in August 2012, he was able to fit me in after regular office hours and fix my chipped tooth and knocked out filling. I haven’t had any issues since. Dr. Patel is a compassionate and highly skilled professional who offers unbiased advice while putting his patients at ease…great dentist and I highly recommend him!

Shaan B. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been currently going to this doctor for many years now, and I have been amazed of the customer service and the helpfulness of all of the staff members.  Their hygienist especially made me feel welcome and taught me about the ways of good dental hygiene. Out of all the other dentists that I have been to, Dr. Patel helped me and did not regard me as another money maker. Overall this dental 2000 is a must.

Fauwaz H. from Orange, CA (Source: Google)


Everything I wanted in a dentist! I highly recommend him! Very professional, very knowledgeable, very caring, a perfectionist when it comes to his patients teeth and sensitive to not recommending things I didn’t need. An overall pleasing and comfortable experience!

Kari G. from Ontario, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Patel has regained my trust in dentistry. He walked me through the whole procedure and it was painless.  I was terrified but the staff is very friendly and funny especially Maritza.  My implants are amazing! I can eat and I saved a lot of money, which for a college student it’s important. Dr Patel was great. I am completely forever staying here. He has gone above and beyond. He educated me on dental implants and has given me the confidence I needed, in regards to my teeth.  Thank you, Dr Patel, for doing my awesome dental implants!

Kevin T. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the best dental experience that I have ever had. I haven’t been to the dentist for years because I was nervous about a past experience a few years back that left a bad taste in my mouth. After meeting Dr Patel and Nicole the treatment coordinator, I was at ease with how they treated me. I had a great experience and it was cheaper than anyone else around. I will recommend them to friends and family. Good Prices and Great Service! Thank you Dental 2000.

Thank you dental 2000 for easing my dental implant experience! I don’t remember the procedure at all. Thank you Bridgette for making my time at the office a awesome experience you rock.

Pam Peace Kumar (Source: Google)


I like this place a lot. They did my implants so nice and perfect . All appointment were so nice. Special attention . Hygiene good. Staff so nice friendly. Bridget is awesome, she goes out of her way to help. I had great experience there. I will highly recommend this place.

Chris U. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would just like to say that I hate the dentist. Nothing about going to the dentist is fun. You know you are going to have to sit in some chair while the assistants and dentist do their work and it most likely will be painful. That was my experience with every other dentist exam I have had in the past. Recently I went to Dental 2000 and right away Ellie greeted me with a perfect smile (that.s a good sign at a dental office) and provided me with water and magazines while I waited. Dr. Patel saw me on time, again this is a rarity in my previous experiences with dentists, and he was very cool, calm and collected. My cleaning and whitening process went quickly. This atmosphere made for the opposite of what I was expecting, it wasn’t bad at all! I was actually out ahead of time and I would definitely recommend Dental 2000 to anyone else. Thank you again!!!

Mamon A. from Torrance, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was a little nervous going to see Dr. Patel based on a referral, last time I did that I had a lot of pain and I have my own dentist in LA, but my toothache was so bad I needed to see someone quick! He was awesome I felt no pain and did very great work, Nicole was very friend and assured me everything would be alright. They gave me a good deal and I am very happy with his work!

I’ve always been afraid of Dental routines, the pain is unbearable, but thanks to Bridgette and the Rest of the staff a Dental 2000 that worry is now a fleeting memory, the saved my life while keeping the cost low! Thanks Dental 2000 you’ll definitely be getting a Christmas from this guy tho year!

George G. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had 3 implants completed, whitening, fillings, etc. and I love this office. Previously I was am extremely reluctant and anxious dental participant, however, the staff, professionalism and pricing is outstanding. Maritza is awesome! You have to love her! I highly recommend Dental 2000!

Kathy A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I want to Thank Dr.Patel and his wonderful Staff! For helping me and just really caring for myself and all my dental needs! I was in extreme need of Dental Implants and I decided I had put it off for way to long! Luckily i was referred to Dental 2000! by a coworker. They have really helped me and allowed me to regain my self confidence and SMILE. Thank you to the entire office and a special thanks to Teresa.R! For following up with me throughout it all.

Vanessa G. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start of by saying how Amazing the Dental 2000 staff is! They have a new girl in the front I believe her name is Teresa! she is polite and courteous. I had called inquiring about there implant promotion and she was able to go over all the options and offered to help me with my new dental insurance enrollment coming up. Doctor Patel is a fantastic implant diplomat and I am ecstatic about starting treatment with them. I would highly encourage anyone who needs a implant to visit Dental 2000!

First off , I have had a lifelong phobia of going to the dentist , regardless of the procedure. I always inform the staff of my condition wherever I have had an appointment. Most of the time it seems like my fears fall on deaf ears as I don’t feel they take me serious or try to ease my anxiety. This was the case at every dental office I had ever been to until I visited Dr Patel’s office in Irvine… From the minute I walked in I was treated with respect and made to feel very comfortable throughout my procedure. I have to give a special thank you to a young lady named Bridgette who was very hands on and so integral in making me comfortable and relaxed and made it the least unsettling dentist visit I have ever had. Dr Patel was also wonderful and I recommend this office and there staff to anyone looking for a dentist in the area.

Marilou A. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred by my friend who had his dental implant in this clinic 2 years ago. I have a very positive impression during my 1st visit especially with Bridgette who is in charge of the amount I need to pay. We are talking about dental cosmetics which is very costly and Bridgette is very accommodating and extra funny. The other staffs – Teresa and Sheila are likewise nice. I am looking forward to my next appointment and hoping that with these wonderful staff and competent dentist… all my procedures will be successful.

Have been using Dental 2000 for all my dental work and check ups. Dr. Patel is very friendly and comforting, as the dental chair can be scary. I appreciate the time he takes to explain what needs to be done without pressuring me. He was able to give me a great rate for Invisalign treatment. I wouldn’t imagine going else where (…).

Anthony Kirit (Source: Google)


Bridgette was just perfect. She was very professional as well as easy to get along with when talking to us. We were offered great service from the moment we walked in until the moment we walked out of there. The work was exceptional and I now have a new smile. I couldn’t be happier with this place.

Pianaka F. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and TC (assistant) are a great team!!!! Very nice and caring. Pricing are beyond reasonable!! If you haven’t given them a chance to get in your mouth I suggest you start now! You won’t find a better place! Quality, care, clean, and always happy! Now we can keep smiling  SoCal!

Dr Nimesh & (partner dentist) are everything you would want in a dentistry office and much more. They are professionals at the top of their game always excelling in the latest techniques and implementing modern technology into their office space. Every time I have been there, the staff has been friendly and courteous.

Sara P. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Patel and his team are fantastic. (…) Dr. Patel was able to find the best remedy for the problem for way less.  (…) I went for my next cleaning and there were no cavities.  He didn’t try to push anything on me.  I left there feeling like I have the best dentist.  Very polite, friendly, and helpful all around.  I’ve passed his card to all my friends…and will continue to refer him.

Great office and friendly staff. I lost a back tooth awhile ago. A implant was really needed due to not being able to chew. Dr. listened and took into consideration my fear. Gave me medication to make the visit easier on me. I had quotes from previous office. For all my services received, it was a beyond great price! Even got the CT done in office. The girls were so friendly and answered all my million questions. This place is so great, I now get my cleanings done every 4 months with the hygienist (who is beyond awesome). Thank you Dental 2000 for making the experience so pleasurable.

DS. T. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Google)


Dr. Patel, is the best dentist I have ever experienced in my life. I usually hate going to the dentist, as does my husband, but he made it an enjoyable and informative experience. Luckily, our (…) insurance is accepted by him, because he is the only dentist I have been able to drag my husband to. Even when we paid out of pocket his prices were very reasonable for several cavities and a cleaning. Definitely recommend this dentist for anyone normally afraid of the dentist.

Mitra N. from Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always had a problem finding a good dentist, and finally after years I found him! He is a magician when it comes to his work! He did a sinus lift, bone graft, pulled my teeth and did my implants in one day! And the recovery has been so well! His work is so gentle and after the surgery I didn’t have that much pain. The pricing is so great and for years I couldn’t afford doing this work on my teeth until I found this doctor! His personality is amazing and it’s a blessing I found this this doctor. Thank you so much Doctor Patel, I’m so lucky to have found my new permanent dentist!

Brad C. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Patel uses the very latest technology and techniques. This saves a lot of time and money. After shopping around for an implant I was skeptical that his prices were so much better than my old dentist. I soon learned that Dr Patel can do in one visit that elsewhere takes two or three visits working with multiple specialists. Dr Patel is simply more efficient and passes the resulting savings on to his customers. On the people side his staff are very friendly and helpful. So much so that my entire family now relies on Dr Patel for all our dental care.

William L. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I put off going to the dentist for over a year and boy do I wish I would have found this place much sooner. From the moment I walked in I was treated very friendly. Went back for X-rays and turned out as I feared I needed some major work done. DR. Patel took special time to make sure I knew exactly what I needed done. He was also so positive and energetic, it really made me feel comfortable. I only had that day off so they made sure to get me taken care of then and there. When it came to payment I was worried about my limited budget but Ellie worked with me and I left wearing a huge smile. I highly recommend this dentist and his office to my friends and family!

Izzy B. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m the type of person who avoids the dentist. Just from past experiences. I was recommended Dr.Patel by a friend. The second I walked in, I was greeted by a welcoming staff. I got an X-ray which was painless and quick. Dr.Patel was very detailed when it came to explaining the treatment needed. I was explained the cost of my treatment in a professional and private manner. And now I must say thank you Dental 2000!! I recommend to everyone.

Edgar Mendieta (Source: Google)


We love Dr. Patel! He is so nice and did a great job answering our questions and making us smile. He is a great dentist!!

JeanAnne L. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Google)


My visit to Dental 2000 today was one of my personal best experiences in any dental office ever. Bridgette and the staff helped me feel completely heard and understood what I needed and provided that care with so much compassion. I’ve been going to Dental 2000 for almost two years. I’ve experienced everything from a deep cleaning, filling, crowns and even 2 implants. I have never had any problems with any of the doctors and they’ve given excellent care and have helped me feel healthy and confident about my smile again. Today only confirmed my love and appreciation for this practice. If you’re looking for a group that truly cares about the well-being of their patients; this is the place.

Jigar P. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel is very personable and made my teeth look great. He did what a dentist should do and that’s to locate the problem, educate me on the problem, and then fix the problem at a reasonable price. The staff was friendly too. No complaints. Got in, got out, good experience.

Mia P. from Chula Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve going to Dr. Patel for a few years now and he’s the best.. I’ve had a root canal done and let me tell you I was as nervous as heck, but he was patient and explained to me everything he was doing, and he understood my anxiety. now all my family goes to him and I wouldn’t go anywhere else.  the staff  in the front is very professional and I’ve hardly had to sit around in the waiting room like most Dr. places, hats off to their ability to  schedule  patients.  I would highly recommend Dr. Patel and his office to anyone and have done so on many occasions.

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


Let me start off by saying I haven’t been to the dentist in years so I was somewhat apprehensive about going even though I needed some work. But from the moment I arrived for my appointment I felt at ease by Dr Patel and his staff. Excuse the pun but I actually left with a smile on my face 🙂 And it didn’t hurt that his prices for crowns was very competitive compared to other dentists I talked too! I might have to start going to the dentist more often! Thank you Dr Patel!!

I had a really good experience at Dental 2000. Staff was very friendly and attentive. I came into the Dentist to get a root canal for my front tooth which would require a crown. Root canal went very smoothly. He initially put in a temporary crown while they ordered the final crown. They were able to match the color of my other teeth perfectly. Honestly can’t even notice that it’s not a real tooth! Overall my experience was great. Would recommend to others.

I had a good experience at this Dentist. Staff is friendly. I had to get a root canal done on my front tooth with no issues. I’ve also gone in to get my teeth cleaned and whitened. Was done pretty quickly and seemed thorough. I’ve had numerous visits with Dr. Patel and each of them have been great.

Araceli A. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently visited Dental 2000 and I had a very pleasant experience at this Dental office. The Dentist and staff are amazing. They made me feel right at home.  They answered all of my questions and I felt no pain at all. After my  severe dental work, I was able to continue with my daily activities without any major pain whatsoever!! The staff is quick and courteous!! They are a modern office with computers screens up in every room so that one can monitor their own 3D X-rays. They also have video games for kids to enjoy while waiting for the dentist.  I will continue to refer my friends and family to Dental 2000. Please visit them you will not be disappointed!!!
