Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

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


These guys changed my life. I cannot express that with enough emphasis. They literally changed my life. You know that thing about you that you can’t really shake the feeling of hating? Hopefully most of you don’t have it but I suspect a lot of people do… You know, you’re like, god, I’m so awesome except for this one little thing. I hated my teeth for years. Like, hated. Hated smiling. Hated pictures. Hated hated hated. They weren’t even that horrible but I’m such a teeth snob about women I was sure there was no way anyone could find me attractive with my two stragglers. And then in my LATE teens my parents agreed to pay for braces. Greatest blessing of my life. So we went to three or four consultations and the orthodontists performed various tests and we received quotes that ranged from 5-10k. Most of them said I would need surgery to fix my alignment issues. Most importantly we just didn’t click with any of the docs. So we got a referral to Drs. DiGiovanni and Cook  and the stars, in fact, aligned. They were the least expensive and offered the most logically sound solution. No crazy jaw realignment surgeries. No craziness at all. I seriously could not recommend them more. Everyone in their office is super friendly. They walk you through the process. Answer all your questions. I’m not sure if they still do it (I’m assuming they do) but they used to work out a payment plan. Seriously top notch in every way. The joy that I experienced after my braces came off was almost inspiring enough to make me want to become an orthodontist. It brought me more joy than any other event or series of events that have ever occurred in my life. When all was said and done, I felt like a new human. They told me later that they took my original impressions to their industry night where they talk about tough cases. Their colleagues all agreed I needed surgery. And then they busted out my final impressions gansta style and blew away their colleagues with the course of treatment. These guys are brilliant. If you don’t like your teeth, you will after they get done with you.

I am simply in awe! Talk about a well organized practice that makes you feel welcome from the minute you make the initial call. I took my son to an ortho a few years ago and lets just say that the results were less than acceptable. He mentioned that most of his friends at school are a patient of this practice and we should make an appt with Dr. DiGiovanni. I am VERY glad that we did! There was no pressure and in fact Dr. DiGiovanni recommended that we do minimum work to fix our concerns. I highly recommend this practice to anyone who needs an orthodontist. The transparency and the genuine care trickles from the top down. Everyone’s goal here is to make you feel welcome, comfortable and earn your trust. Professionalism, integrity, warmth, and much more!!! Thank you Dr. DiGiovanni and team! Alex & Pasha D.

Pierre W. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went into Dr. Digi office not because I needed braces, because I did not like how my lower teeth grew in as a child.  Let’s just say they were straight to most people, but not too me.  The staff did not see any need for me having braces, but since I was not satisfied, the staff and Dr. Digi did whatever it took to make me happy with my lower teeth. Kids must love going to Dr. Digi office for the game room, playing on the iPads and all the the prizes that can be won.  If you are looking for an Orthodontics office that takes good care of you and/or your kid(s) no matter what your Orthodontics needs are, Dr. Digi and Staff is the 1st place one should visit.

Sandra J. from Lake Balboa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE DR. DI GIOVANNI, HIS STAFF AND THIS OFFICE!!!  I have always dreaded going to any dentist, but Dr. Di Giovanni changed all that.  As an adult I needed braces due to a bite problem and it was overwhelming for me.  However, Dr. Di Giovanni, who seemed to just sense my apprehension, spent so much time with me to explain all my options.  He and his staff are so warm and genuinely caring.  It is so comfortable and the personal attention you receive is so rare. Additionally, the office is absolutely gorgeous and spotless (I’m a total clean-freak!).  Now I have beautiful straight teeth, a perfect bite and just can’t say enough about how impressed I am with Dr. Di Giovanni and this office!  When my children are old enough this is the only orthodontist I will even consider. The best!  Just the absolute best.

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


Dr. DiGiovanni and staff are so wonderful!! Two of my kids have been to Dr. Di and I am so glad that I made the decision to bring them to his office. The office is beautiful and organized! The staff is so incredibly friendly and accomodating! They ALWAYS explained everything to my children so they never had any fear of the step by step procedures. They have a wonderful rewards program so they kids can earn points for good grades, brushing teeth, birthdays, etc. Most of all, the kids teeth are BEAUTIFUL!! If I could give them 10 stars, I would!

Heather M. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Digiovanni and Dr Cook were referred to me by a friend. I have had appointments at both the Newport Beach and Laguna Beach offices and wow are they beautiful! They are definitely geared toward kids with fun video games and free gifts as incentives for good hygiene. As an adult patient, I appreciated the multiple magazines and delicious beverage bar. They even have a separate adult section with bigger comfy chairs if you wanted some seclusion. The offices are very clean, high tech and professional, I appreciated that the staff acknowledged me when I would come in for appointments and would say “hi”. I also really appreciated that they would make sure I wouldn’t wait too long, and on a rare occasion, if I did have to wait, they would accommodate me immediately. Even though I never mind waiting a few minutes it always made me feel like they thought that my time was important too. The offices are always busy but I have to say that the staff always seems really happy to be there, like they truly enjoy their jobs and they are all very chatty and fun. Everyone I encountered was perky and smiling, the staff and doctors were very thorough and knowledgeable and nice! Most importantly above all is that my teeth are absolutely perfect now, not just better, but perfect! I am very happy, it has changed the whole look of my face. I don’t normally take time to write reviews but this worth it.  I would highly recommend them.

Tom D. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


4 members of my family have been patients of Drs DiGiovanni and Cook with excellent results.  The staff is highly professional, caring and pleasant to be around. Orthodontia is a significant investment of time and money, so I recommend that you research and compare alternatives. Our experience with Drs DiGiovanni and Cook was most positive.  2 daughters had full orthodontia in 2 phases.  My wife and I chose Invisalign.  All treatments were completed in the forecast time, with smiles all around. In my case I was hesitant to deal with the inconvenience of adult orthodontia, but I’m very pleased with the results.

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


Dr. DiGiovanni and his staff are amazing. The office is a tightly run ship. It is spotless and professional at every turn. When we showed up there, my son’s teeth were a mess–I was worried nobody could fix them! Dr. DiGiovanni did a fantastic job and now my son’s teeth are gorgeous. Dr. DiGi and his staff took what could have been a really unpleasant experience and made it easy and painless. Thank you, Dr. DiGiovanni! An extra star should go to one of his assistants, Raquel. She’s fabulous and very patient.

Andrea F. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. DiGiovanni and his staff are the best!  Carla is always so helpful and friendly on the phone.  All of his orthodontia assistants are patient and kind.  My kids especially like Wendy and Erica.  Dr. DiGiovanni is always available to his patients.  He goes above and beyond to meet their needs.  He is also a must supportive member of our community, sponsoring fundraisers for the schools, AYSO and NBLL.    We all owe our bright, beautiful smiles to you, John.  Thank you!.

Brittney B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an amazing experience with DiGiovanni and Cook Orthodontics!!! I am still currently in my braces so you can send me a message about any questions you might have! I am 19 years old. I never had braces when I was younger, and I was starting to feel very self conscious about my smile. First off, I have to say they are the best orthodontists ever. I shopped around before picking DiGiovanni and Cook and no one else compared to them. It was super fun, I enjoyed all of my visits! They have the best waiting room I have ever seen. The staff is soooo nice and friendly, I personally had Dr. Cook as my Ortho and she was great, I noticed results in my teeth ( I had a bad gap and when I closed my mouth it looked like my mouth was still open 😛 ) Within the first few weeks my bite dramatically changed and its still changing! My teeth are almost perfect now and i have a short time to go, but i was surprised at how fast and easy my treatment has been. They work with your school and work schedule, im working and in college currently so this was a definite plus for me. They have the most advanced technology currently available, and are constantly researching new ideas and going to conferences to have the best orthodontic technology/services available. I must also say that they do a different variety of options to choose from, invisalign, “Invisible” ceramic braces, traditional metal braces, etc. and all of the services are reasonably priced plus they fix your braces for FREE at anytime if you break a bracket or rubber band, no questions asked!! …that was the best part for me because I love hard candy, chewing/crunching ice cubes, and sticky foods so I was getting mine fixed often haha. Another thing they do is a point/reward systems which is pretty cool, they let you earn points for different things (they give you a huge list) and you can cash in your points for awesome prizes (Disneyland Passes, Nordtroms gift cards, iPod touches, and almost anything else you can think of..the list is gigantic!) Over all, I HIGHLY recommend DiGiovanni and Cook Orthodontics, they really are the best in their profession.

Mike L. from Karlsruhe, Germany (Source: Yelp)


Getting braces as an adult was a great decision and I’m glad I did so with Dr DiGiovanni and his friendly staff. Before moving back to San Francisco I working in OC on an extended contract, where a colleague highly recommended Dr. DiGiovanni. So, after reading the more recent Yelp reviews I decided to have a consultation with him. He was very thorough and presented me with different options. I appreciated the detail he wen into and I decided to go for it. I’m really glad I did. Dr Digiovanni and his staff made the stressful process actually an enjoyable experience. His staff is knowledgable and friendly and the office modern. I am really happy with my results and recommend this office to any adult seeking braces.

Sundra S. from Corona Dl Mar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our entire family has had orthodontic treatments (Braces, Retainers, Invisalign) with Dr. Digiovanni. Our relationship with him and his very professional staff has been over a period of 10 years now. He is an exceptional orthodontist and has always given us the most complete and up to date care. I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND him and his staff. Never was I ever pressured into anything, in fact at times I was told that treatments for my children would be less than I expected and I have always appreciated his conservative nature. Once we had an ortho emergency and his staff stayed open late until we could arrive, it doesn’t get any better than that!!! The BEST Orthodontist in Newport Beach is Dr. John Digiovanni.

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


Dr Digiovanni’s office is probably the most hi-tech interactive office in the area. It is also very professional, respectful and fun for kids and adults. As adults if we need braces we usually put it off. I was no different, I put off braces for so many years and finally decided to do them. My treatment was unbelievably fast and painless. Anytime I had a question or concern, it was as if he already knew what I was going to ask. I don’t have kids old enough for ortho treatment, but this has to be the best place for kids to get treatment. TVs galore, video game room, and contest. Not to mention PSP’s right on the treatment chairs and TVs in the ceiling while your getting treatment. – office staff is very professional and friendly. Most doctors office personnel are just the opposite. – never any scheduling or billing issues. This is a huge one! How many Times do you go to the Dr. Office and your appt is at x-time and you sit there and wait n wait… That doesn’t happen here.

Samantha M. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best Ortho in town! Wonderful staff who are kind and patient and always so friendly. 5 stars all the way, fabulous office and fun atmosphere. Most up to date technology and now can even offer in house x rays. Marvelous follow up with personal calls checking in on patients and email updates. Cannot say enough about this Ortho practice. All three of my children have been through Dr. Digiovaani’s care and his love of his profession coupled with his attention to detail and the fact that he is also a Dad of three sets him apart from the rest!

Lisa Stevens Wegner (Source: Facebook)


If only there had been orthodontist offices this amazing when I was a kid! I love not only the cool frills like the video game room and tvs on the ceiling, but also the reward system for the kids and the fabulous personalized service. Dr. DiGiovanni and his entire staff are so caring! Thank you for a fabulous experience for my daughter!

Fran G. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


What an all around great experience my family and I have had over the past 5 years at Doctor Di Giovanni’s Office. My 2 children and I have all been in or currently are in treatment and have found the office consistently to be friendly, professional, efficient and produce beautiful smiles. The office is beautiful and welcoming. From the moment you walk into the office you know it is a special place. You’re always greeted with a friendly smile from the assistant to make you feel welcome. There is a computer that you type your name into and like clock work you are greeted and seated for your appointment. In 5 years I have never waited more than 5-10 minutes for an appointment and we are usually seen on time and out on time. That alone is impressive from a doctor’s office. The staff is amazing. I need to mention Wendy in that my daughter is very fearful and she always jokes and laughs with her and she even bought her a toy. But all of the staff is notable–well trained, friendly and gentle.  I appreciate Dr. Di Giovanni spending time each visit to talk to us about our treatment. I admire his style in that he is very interactive and friendly and very professional. On more than one occasion he has called or emailed us to follow up on treatment. Great experience, customer service and beautiful smiles. All you can want and more from an orthodontist!

Our 9 yr. old son, Diego, will be completing his treatment with Dr.DiGi and getting his braces off in a couple weeks. It’s bitter-sweet as the service and vibe of the office is SO AMAZING!! Dr. DiGi and his staff have done an amazing job branding themselves and creating an ideal environment to make the entire family comfortable. Diego has been excited for every appointment! Staff members willing invited us into the appointment and explained the purpose of each appointment, thus we’ve understood the entire process. Coming from the Surf Industry, I understand the importance of image, branding and service… the goal is to make each “transaction” seamless, Dr. DiGi & Dr. Cook have done it!!

Susan C. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. John DiGiovanni and his very capable staff always took the necessary time needed in completing every phase of the orthodontia process. Both of my daughters have had braces and still continue follow up visits 10 years later. Dr. John has a wonderful way of making the patient feel at ease during the long process. He encourages daily care and hygiene with motivating contests. His staff is very professional and informed me after every appointment as to the status of my daughter’s progress and next steps. Attention to detail is what impresses me the most. Both offices, in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach are warm and inviting.Many of my daughter’s friends have had their orthodontia work done with Dr. John. It’s the best of the best.

Karen T. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best orthodontist office!!!!  I love going in for my kids’ appointments.  I have 3 children that have been seen by Dr. Di Giovanni for the past 10 years.  Everyone in the office is very professional, helpful and kind.  My children especially love all the fun office games and videos.  I am so impressed with how smoothly the office runs and how little I have had to wait in the waiting room.  This office is so different than when I had gone for braces as a child.  I am even thinking of doing Invisalign for myself.  GREAT OFFICE!!!

Eren Bartolucci (Source: Facebook)


My son was in the middle of Ortho treatment elsewhere and we were completely unhappy so we switched to Dr DiGiovanni. Everyone has been so wonderful, caring, friendly, and they have great bed side manners!! My son is no longer afraid to go to his appointments and looks forward to his next visit. I will recommend Dr DiGiovanni to all my friends!!

This review was a long time coming. If you are looking up Dr DG, chances are that you or your child need braces. I met Dr DG as a 38 year old with a crossbite/ underbite. Prior to this, I had consults with at least 2 other Newport orthos (one of them was actually my child’s ortho), and all of them had the same general recommendation: to have jaw surgery which involved breaking my jaw to align it properly, and then get in braces for about 2+ years. I did NOT want to do this, at age 38. What I wanted was camouflage dentistry with sustainable results. (I discovered that this was an option because I became friendly with another dentist. Up until then, I didn’t even realize it was an option or I would have done it sooner.) I met with Dr DG and he was the ONLY ortho that got it. We did Xrays, went thru treatment and surgery options (yes, I fully understood and signed off on the risks and just to be sure, met with 2 independent oral surgeons – one that he recommended and another reputable one). I did a ton of research on the web, even watched a jaw surgery on Youtube (super gross, don’t do it)! I will not describe my specific treatment plan (you should understand your own, though)- but let me put it this way. About 18-20 months of clear braces and other stuff later, my teeth look awesome. They really do. I am so happy with the results, I get compliments all the time, and I would do it again in a heartbeat. Don’t get me wrong. I did not love being IN braces. But, I love my teeth now. And working with Dr DG made what would have been a not-fun experience, productively fun. Dr DG and his staff were a dream to work with. They were accommodating, caring, gentle when needed, quick with offering the Advil (ha!), fast when I needed to get somewhere else, flexible about fitting me in (even after hours) when “something just isn’t right” and always explained to me what was going on with my teeth and (the inevitable question at about 18 months)- HOW MUCH LONGER AND WHY. Always. Another always- I always saw Dr. DG at every appointment, so he had full mastery of what he wanted to do with this complicated case. He stayed as long as he needed to- could be 5 minutes (“OK, we’re on course here, carry on”) or he could be 25 minutes. I did not feel rushed. If cost is an issue, Dr DG;s quote for my treatment (the braces part) was exactly the same as everybody else’s. Or less, actually (since it ended up not involving the jaw surgery). Incidentally, I did not interview Dr DG for my children’s ortho care because someone told me that he was expensive. That’s just not true. I wish I knew then what I know now. Hope this helps!

Tracy P. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr DiGiovanni and his staff are fabulous!!  His office is very fun and welcoming and the staff is very efficient, professional and caring.  Dr DiGiovanni is top notch.  He is genuinely interested in each patient’s needs and spends time getting to know each patient personally and makes them feel very special throughout their treatment.  My boys absolutely love going to his office! I highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a caring, fun, efficient and professional office.

Hannah N. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love this orthodontist! I just got my braces off yesterday, and at the moment I’m watching my little brother get his on. The staff are all so friendly and nice, and I love how they explain to you what they’re doing as they go along, it’s very reassuring. For example, “this is a tool that takes the glue off, it will feel a bit windy and cold, if you feel uncomfortable at any time raise your right hand.” When i got my braces off yesterday, they handed me a bouquet of flowers and a big bar of chocolate and had me ring a bell while everyone clapped. The atmosphere of the office is beautiful and enjoyable. I really felt like I was in good hands the entire time. Overall, I would recommend this orthodontist to anybody in OC that needs orthodontic care.

Theresa C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great office atmosphere!  Wonderful staff that run on time!  Dr. DiGiovanni almost always would check on my daughter at every visit even if changing rubber bands.  So kid friendly with all the in office and out of office contests as well as sound proof game room and Ipads while you wait.  My daughter was only 8 so pretty scared – and now she looks forward to going and loved getting to pick colors of her rubber bands to fit the holidays or sports teams as well as now with her braces off, she got to have a little dog picture on her retainer!

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


Dr Digi is the VERY BEST!!!!!!!! His office staff from the first call to your last visit treats you like you are their only patient.  Great chair side attitude, very patient with sensitive scary cats, gentle and funny.  Office is gorgeous with a nice amenities bar.  Game room for the kids and always willing to get your supplies to you when you forgot to get them when you were in. I could not have asked for a better staff that supports Dr Digi.  Now if you could see my girls smile!!!!!  That alone is worth every visit and advice and care this office gives.  She has a million dollar smile for just a few pennies for the result!!!!  Don’t think twice book your appointment today for adults and kids!

AJ. E. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. DiGiovanni is an amazing Orthodontist- a perfectionist. All four of my kids have seen him and all had unique cases.  His staff members are friendly and competent. They go above and beyond  the call of duty.   Dr. DiGiovanni  has answered all my questions and has spent time with each of my kids.  His office is extremely clean and he makes it fun for the kids with video games in the waiting room, iPads to borrow, and incentive programs (prizes for kids who show up on time and brush well). Dr. DiGiovanni and his staff member always make my appointment enjoyable.

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


Two of my kids just got their braces off in the last month and I am finally on here writing a review. Dr. Digiovanni and his staff have been beyond amazing from start to finish in every aspect of my kids’ orthodontic care. While the end results are fabulous, the most unusual thing about this office is the happiness of all the staff. It just has a good feeling when you walk in the door and my kids never minded once going for a visit. They are so efficient, so professional, so extremely patient with our insurance companies (more patient than myself actually), so caring, so proficient and knowledgeable, and again, just seem happy to be there which really affects the whole experience. Kudos! Highly recommend! We will be back with our third kid when it’s his time.

Jonathan T. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son had a wonderful experience with his orthodontic work.  Dr. DiGiovanni and his staff were professional and did a great job. They communicated well and kept us informed on what was being done and progress of the work. I felt that Dr. DiGiovanni made every effort to keep the work to a minimum without compromising the results.  For anyone considering orthodontic work, I would recommend DiGiovanni Orthodontics.

Sulma P. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Dr. DG and the staff felt really homey. I loved coming in and using the brushing station and viewing all the quirky fish and underwater ambiance that was displayed throughout the office. The staff always greeted me with warm smiles and it was nice always seeing Dr. DG while I went around greeting the staff. When it came to my braces, the staff was always helpful in letting me know the best ways to maintain and keep them clean. It was fun experiencing wearing gold braces and mixing and matching the array of colors. They made wearing rubber bands in my teeth amusing because I got the option of colored ones as well. With excellent brushing and being persistent with my rubber bands, I was able to get my braces off four months early, right on time for college ID pictures. I loved going to every visit and having everyone get as excited as me on how fast my severe open bite and cross bite was disappearing. Dr. Dg really made it clear as what was going on with my teeth and made sure every visit counted. I was ecstatic when I finally got them off and was so thankful for being rewarded with beautiful flowers and chocolate by the wonderful Dr. Dgiovanni and his amazing staff. I couldn’t have dreamt of a better Dental experience.

Kathleen M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My orthodonitc dental work was recently completed at the offices of DiGiovanni and Cook, and I must say that I was delighted with the outcome.  Being an older patient, I wasn’t sure whether the time spent would be worth it, but I must say, IT WAS!  I love the way my teeth look now.  Thank you!  The staff, whether it be the front office, or chairside assistants, were fantastic, as well as the doctors themselves.  They provided the best possible care, with a very positive attitude at all times. The office is very modern, and  I definitely recommend the offices of Dr. DiGiovanni and Dr. Cook to everyone, young and old.

Jim B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


*I’d like to say that I typically don’t review places but after my experiences in this office, I decided that Dr. DiGiovanni did so much for my family that I just wanted to express my gratitude to him and his entire staff.  Without going into it to much, Dr DiGiovanni is a very caring person.  My family has had some tougher times with the Obama Economy and we were in a “compromised situation” financially.  The orthodontist that we were going to  would not work with us at all even though my child was in braces in his practice, my older was a previous patient there  and she dismissed us.   Not knowing what to do, we went to several orthodontists and noone would take my son’s treatment.  Until we had a consult in this office. Dr. DiGiovanni understood what we were going through, did not care about the money  and finished my son’s braces. The office is clean, hi tech and cool.  The staff is so fune, friendly and nice.  If you are looking for braces for your child, you should consider this office. Please contact me personally if you have any questions.

ADULT ORTHO MADE TOLERABLE  If you’ve decided to take the plunge and fix your teeth as a full grown responsible tax paying adult, this is really the only place to go. Dr. Digi probably treats 40% adults and really knows his craft. I feel very confident in his thorough 18 month treatment plan. His personality is really kind and he is very thorough explaining what you’ll be suffering through! (Braces are no joke!) I can’t wait for my result. Raquel is GREAT on the intake, she breaks it all down and is the kind of girl you’d like to go to have a cocktail with, bright eyed and funny! Joanne up front is super nice, will take great care of you and make sure you are stocked with plenty of wax. Kim, my RDA is an expert! She is practically an ortho herself! Alba, his office coordinator is sweet and on her “A” game always. Honestly, if you’re ready for the financial, emotional and physical commitment of braces or Invisalign, this is the crew you want on your team. Imagine if you had a really functional family, and after all the visits, you’ll almost see them more than family…than you want Digiovanni Ortho!

Dr. DiGi and his staff have treated all three of my children as well as myself. The experience has been top notch in every way. Their professionalism and customer friendliness is unmatched. I always felt welcome and well taken care of in every way. The set up of the office with tv screens on the ceiling at each station, games in the waiting room, and a coffee bar made going to the orthodontist a fairly nice experience. When I had to change or cancel appointments, the front desk was always so accomodating and friendly. I highly recommend this practice.

Bernie J. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a pleasant experience visiting your office is! It starts when you arrive in a beautiful waiting room, which is both soothing and comfortable, continues on with friendly and helpful conversation with your staff and ends with the professional care you treat your patients with — regardless of their age. Going to any dentist, even an orthodontist, is an experience most of us would rather do without, but sometimes you luck out with an office that really cares about your comfort and happiness. Thanks, Dr. Digiovanni. We appreciate you!.


Dr. DiGiovanni graduated from USC School of Dentistry and has been a certified Orthodontic Specialist with offices in Newport Beach and Laguna Beach since 1993. Dr. DiGiovanni has the distinction of being a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontists since 1997. He is an assistant clinical professor at the USC Dental School Graduate Orthodontic Program and a Continuing Education Provider. fish_appt.pngI feel very fortunate to have had the opportunity to provide orthodontic care to so many fantastic families in the Orange County Community over the past 20 years. As your orthodontist, my goal has always been to make each patient’s experience in our office as enjoyable as possible by providing the highest quality, state-of-the-art care in a fun, friendly and nurturing environment. It is my practice philosophy that outstanding patient care can only be achieved when there is excellent communication. This involves discussing treatment progress with you personally at each visit so you will always know how your treatment is progressing as well as coordinating your treatment with your dentist and dental team. In our office, we encourage open communication as much as we do quality service and care. We pledge to provide you a truly positive experience based on one-to-one personal care and the finest orthodontics available anywhere. A warm welcome to our orthodontic family and practice!
