My fiancé was in soooo much pain and nobody was willing to work with his insurance nor take him regardless of how much pain he was in… Until he found Design Dental Group. They were extremely helpful, helped him get all his insurance situated and ever helped him figure out how to make payments! We are extremely thankful for everyone in that office!

Dr. Amini and his group are very friendly and professional. I am very happy with the quality of Dental procedures I have received. One of my favorite qualities of Dr. Amini and his staff is they are always willing to listen to your dental concerns and they act quickly and professionally for providing a solution to your Dental needs.

I had been looking for a local new dentist for months. Received a marketing flyer in the mail and made an appointment. I was impressed with the cleanliness of their office, and the service was beyond my expectations!!! Everyone was professional, knowledgeable and caring, and made me feel so good about my visit. I’ve now found my new dentist – YAY!!!

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


Dr. Amini and Dr. Farzin are the best.  I use to hate going to the dentist, but now I don’t mind it.  I am a very difficult patient, and get gag reflex during X-rays and examination. They are very patient with me and work around my anxiety.  Dr. Amini works fast but is very thorough. They did a great job with my fillings.  Also I can get in and get out fast. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes if that to be seen. Everybody is very friendly and make you feel comfortable and cared for. Regarding price, they are fair and will work with you and your budget. I recommend them to my family and now my grandparents, mom and husband all to there too.

Design Dental Group provide excellent dental services specializing in general dentistry, prosthodontics, and implants. The doctors and the staff are professional, kind, and respectful. It is a friendly family oriented office. I give them ten stars.

Friendly making me feel very comfortable. Explained everything to me and I felt no pressure. Cleaning was gentle and not painful like my last dentist. I think they are modern and skilled.

Dr. Amini and his staff are great. I am from out of town and had a dental emergency. They took me right in and did a complete procedure of pulling a tooth doing a bone graph and placing in the stem for an implant all in one visit. Very impressive and very caring.

I have a really busy schedule and this office accommodates me above and beyond what I’ve ever experienced by staying late, allowing long appointments to get more done, and the technology they use is impressive. If I could recommend Design Dental at a10-star I would.

I was referred to Design Dental Group by primary dentist because he was out of town when I chipped my tooth. Design Dental Group squeezed me in the same day to fix my chip. I am beyond happy with the result. My teeth look better than before! Thank you DDG for the boost of confidence.

I have reviewed this dentist before but he keeps on exceeding my expectations. My wife is having a bridge replaced and the attention to detail is quite honestly incredible!! I have never seen my wife’s teeth look so great. A kind patient doctor who treats us so well. I only wish I had his patience.

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


My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Amini for around 3 years. I initially went to see him after being “sold” things that I did not want or need repeatedly by my previous dentist. On my first visit for a simple cleaning Dr. Amini discovered a problem that I had not been aware of. He recommended an implant. My immediate reaction was “Oh NO, here we go again, another dentist that thinks I am an ATM”! However, Dr. Amini took photographs of the tooth and explained the risks to my health so well that I decided to go ahead with the treatment. He was gentle and considerate and took his time with me. I hear many commercials offering same day implants and mine took over 9 months. During that time I visited frequently while Dr. Amini examined the bone graft and only proceeded when the site was ready. After that I brought my wife to see him and she was delighted with his gentle caring style. If you want fast and cheap and don’t care about the consequences then avoid this practice. If you want a caring considerate doctor who is passionate about the work he does and continues to invest his own time in furthering his skills and knowledge then this is the man for you. I have read some of the negative reviews here and it sounds as though these patients definitely wanted quick and cheap. For me, I will continue to receive the excellent care that Dr. Amini gives to my wife and I.

The whole experience in Design Dental office is very pleasant and you would never be disappointed! Because you don’t have to ever been sitting waiting. They are always on time , the place is extremely clean, the staff is very friendly and accommodating. Dr. Farzin is friendly and do her best to answer any questions you have. Most of all, I have never met another dentist like Dr. Amini, with so much Knowlege and expertise and I can say it with confidence because I have been in dental offices most of my life. He is polite, caring, extremely patient and will explain everything, if you are curious to know, his diagnosis is always 100% accurate. I would highly recommend him, especially if you need an implant !!

Djordjo M. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing work from Dr. Tony! While I was studying abroad in Europe, I had a root canal infection that dentists over there couldn’t resolve, but Dr. Tony managed to clean up the infection and prepare me for an implant. The preparation as well as the follow-up were very thorough and clearly explained. As usual, I felt no pain whatsoever, and, more importantly, Dr. Tony explained everything he was doing and presented me with all the options and their risks and benefits. I couldn’t ask for more!

Bryan N. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been going to Design Dental Group for about 5 years now, they are the BEST!! My son had an incredible fear of the Dentist after a horrible visit with a children’s dentist. Dr. Amini cured that with 1 visit! He took his time, was caring, and very gentle. Now my son LOVES to come and see Dr. Amini!! I had some old work done from my childhood that Dr. Amini fixed and I really liked the fact that he was very conservative about it. He did such a good job that you can’t tell which tooth is fixed! Best Doctor, staff, and office by far!!

Aarash M. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Nice and friendly family dentistry. Very detailed oriented and friendly dentistry. Well educated and knowledgable doctor who as well connected to academic environment.

Excellent doctor and everyone in office! Highly recommend ! Affordable price for veneers and professional work done for mine! Very happy to choose this office in Newport Beach!

Angela B. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


NEVER have I ever actually enjoyed going to the dentist….until I found Design Dental. The doctors and the staff are all so caring and personable! I feel like I’m catching up with old friends every six months or so and I can’t wait to find out what everyone’s been up to! Dr. Amini is so gentle and observant. He’s saved me from having work done by catching things other dentists wouldn’t have even bothered to check! When he pulled my wisdom teeth I can say I was pretty afraid of how painful it would be…he was so gentle I didn’t feel a thing!! Absolutely love this place from the doctors all the way down to the front desk staff!! EVERYONE here is always so positive, nice, and polite!! I truly feel I couldn’t find anything better! Design Dental you rock!!! Thank you for making something I used to DREAD before so completely enjoyable now!! 🙂 🙂 🙂

Dr. Amini and Dr. Farzin are very professional. Their work is impeccable. They pay attention to details and always think about what is in the best interest of their patient. Their staff are kind and thoughtful, making going to the dentist a pleasant experience.

Had tooth pain. They got me into the office quickly. After a thorough exam, Dr Amini felt there were a few options. He started with the less invasive one. Worked perfectly and quicker than expected. I now have a new dentist!


Lynne D. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE this office!! Dr. Amini’s chair-side manor is outstanding, he is great at calming the nervous patient. He is genuinely polite to his patients AND his staff. (working for a doctor myself, those things get noticed) It’s obvious that he loves what he does, and he is excellent at it.  I have,  and will always recommend Dr. Amini, he is truly something special!!

I’ve been to a lot of dentists and I have never had as good of an experience than with Dr. Amini, his wife Dr. Mahin Amini and his office staff. Everyone is so friendly and caring and you can tell how passionate Dr. Amini is about helping his patients! He has helped my wife and I with multiple Dental issues and always spends time answering any of our questions and putting us at ease. I also appreciate his gentle hands! I’m in a business where I have many clients and have referred them to him and they all say the same thing about how caring, professional and good he is with them. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a very professional, honest, caring dentist that you can trust.

5 star! The experience of Dr. Amini’s professional dental service is Amazing. When you are with Dr. Amini you don’t experience any pain or anxiety in his practice. His diagnosis is the most accurate and he know the best procedures to meet your needs. Your teeth will function the best and the cosmetic is the best. My wife has had the best implants in his office and my fillings and crowns are amazing. I am very appreciative of his service!

Doctors know what they are doing. They are kind, understanding and generous. Doctors and the office staff make you feel welcome even when you have not been in office awhile. Definitely recommend this dental office.

Susan K. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


After looking for a new dentist, I am very pleased to have found Design Dental group.  Everyone is friendly and when I arrive for my appointment on time there is no wait.  I find the dentists to be very thorough and professional.  Going to see the dentist is a pleasurable experience.

Leyla F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


When your a dentist and the only dentist that you trust is Dr. Amini, that pretty much should tell you everything there is to say! If your looking for a skilled, knowledgable and a honest dentist, he’s the one. A compassionate and professional team as well. I highly recommend this office.

Kendra C. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amini is the best dentist and I would recommend him again and again. The office is so friendly and they have all made me feel as comfortable as possible. I have a lot of anxiety about seeing the dentist but Dr. Amini is so gentle and does great work. I have had minimal pain. I also appreciate that he explains everything he is doing and patiently answers all my questions.

Nina K. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amini and Dr. Farsi, you guys are so awesome.  I’ve known these people for a decade and I can say that they are honest good people.  I’ve been in the dentist industry for a long time and they take care of you.  Thank you for being awesome and working with me always.   Bianca is so awesome too.  They are genuinely awesome people who care!  See you soon!

Every single staff member and DR in this office were the most pleasant I have ever met. It was a wonderful experience and I feel much more confident about the procedure I need to have done. My procedure was done today with Dr. Tony Amini. He is a very kind and caring dentist who wants to do things right the first time. Like the saying measure twice cut once. I had two implants placed in my back lower jaw line and I’m looking forward to eventually getting teeth there again. And a special shout out to the staff and dental assistants who put me at ease.

Dyllon W. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amini was exceptional. I came from having a bad experience at another dentists office to having a completely different experience here. He was able to help me with a chipped tooth problem that the other dentist couldn’t get done properly. His staff are friendly and helpful when you come in as well. He explains everything in detail for you to understand what’s going on. Worth my trip to drive an hour and half away to get the job done right.

Clement R. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had two fillings done yesterday and I could not be happier.  The dentist, Dr. Amini, was very nice during the procedure, ensuring I was comfortable and always checking to make sure everything was okay.  With the anasthetic, you feel a little weird (as though you’re probably drooling all over yourself) but they assured me I was not drooling nor that my face was going wacko.  Haha. The whole procedure was finished within an hour.  I had lunch a few hours later and flossed that night.  I’ll be back in six months for regular cleanings and for follow up. Note: if it’s your first time here, be sure to give youself enough time to find the place.  Most GPS units will drop you at a nearby movie theatre, but it’s around the corner from there.  If you get lost, they are very helpful over the phone to direct you to their location. Just FYI.

Dr. Amini is amazing, know him forever. He did my crowns when he was a student dentist about 16-17 years ago, they looked great then and still look amazing today! He is the best.

Djordjo Milovic (Source: Google)


Dr. Tony did a great job as always — quick, painless, and well done. It’s a privilege to have a dentist like Dr. Tony. Update: Dr. Tony just inserted an implant yesterday, and the procedure and my recovery have been great. Already the second day I feel no pain and there is no bleeding. Update: Next stage complete, and everything went super smoothly. Only the crown to go. It’s amazing how painless and easy Dr. Tony makes it all.

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


I did a lot of research before I had a dental implant, and I was still very anxious. I’d heard so many horror stories about the pain people had after having the procedure, that I almost cancelled the day of my surgery. I couldn’t have been more surprised with how painless it was. The procedure itself lasted about an hour, and was actually easier than having a cavity filled. I expected to have some discomfort after the numbness wore off, or at least expected to have some soreness the next morning (after all I did have a device screwed into my jaw bone!) But I felt absolutely nothing. If I hadn’t seen the MRI of the implant in my mouth, I wouldn’t have believed I’d just had dental surgery. The office is very professional and considerate, I got a call the next morning to see how I was doing. And I’ve been able to make all my appointments after 5pm, to accommodate my work schedule. I’ve also had 2 crowns replaced, and again had no soreness or pain. Amazing. I’m sure there are less expensive dental implants offered by other practices, but it is definitely worth paying a little more to get the very best.
