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

(…) Dr Sahafi had made me feel so welcome in her office. I have never felt like an outsider, considering I only work there as a sub DA. This holds true, too for her patients. I have observed her deep connections with them and its always inspiring to see her personal interactions with them. They always laugh and chat and tell stories and catch up. Dr Sahafi treats all her patients with genuine warmth and kindness. She is very thorough in her and is quite a perfectionist. I have worked for many dentists in my entire career as a dental assistant, and never had I encountered a dental provider who TRULY CARES about her patients. She is a family person, and this also reflects back to the patients. Hence, Dr Sahafi treats her patient like part of her family. She takes time explaining all the procedures and really makes sure that she has answered all their questions. Dr Sahafi has a vast knowledge about dentistry, and what I notice and really like about her is she is never idle nor complacent. She strives hard to always educate herself and keep up with the latest dental technology. Dr Sahafi is a master of her own craft, an artist, and a leader. I feel very fortunate to have found Dr. Sahafi and her team and have no reservations in highly recommending her services. I vouch for Dr Sahafi’s skills and professionalism, 110%.

As far as the type of service you can expect, well first of all Dr. Sahafi is a great communicator and clearly outlines your options to provide you with the best possible care. Furthermore, she ensures proper follow up; if you have any concerns after a procedure she will fit you into her schedule immediately. It’s really refreshing to experience a medical professional that really cares. Over the years, I’ve also been impressed with Dr. Sahafi’s constant drive to utilize new technology. I’ve had a couple of crowns done, now they can even create the crowns at their offices – no need for a temporary, all can be done in one visit. To summarize, if you’re looking for a great dental practice, look no further than Dover Dental!

Dr. Sahafi is a wonderful dentist. She is always ready to greet you with a welcoming smile. I’ve never had to wait in the waiting room for longer than five minutes, and I am always more than satisfied with her work!

Stephanie H. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Facebook)


Dr Sahafi and all the staff at Dover Dental are wonderful! I have had many issues with my teeth from implants to bridges and when it comes to my mouth I am extremely sensitive. Dr. Sahafi is always extra gentle and makes sure that I am comfortable and relaxed during each and every procedure, she has never hurt me like other dentists have in the past. The office is clean and peaceful and the staff is always beyond sweet and welcoming. Dover Dental is a great place to get any dental work you need done and I have recommended them to all my friends and family. 🙂

The staff is so nice. Kate Sahafi runs Dover Dental is an extremely talented dentist. She is a game bar fee all the way, and I’m proud of her. Love you all

I had the pleasure of working with Dr. Sahafi and her staff as a fill-in for one of her hygienists who was out of town. What a wonderful dental office, not only is the staff incredible but the office is spotless, and the patients are some of the nicest people I’ve worked with. I have been filling-in for offices around orange county, feeling discouraged of the way offices are run, and patients are treated. Working only 1 day with Dr. Sahafi and her staff made me realize why I chose my profession again, and it is so refreshing to know with so many scams out there, she is an HONEST doctor!
As a hygienist- my review counts, especially because I  am behind the scenes. I know where I would want to be treated, and I would 100% choose Dover Dental for any dental needs.

I have been with Dr. Sahafi for about 5 years. My kids and my husband both go every year for checkups and cleanings.  We have never had any recommendations to replace fillings or do unnecessary work! Dr. Sahafi and her staff are professional and friendly and provide a warm, safe, clean environment.  She is very ethical and a great dentist!

Darlene R. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


No matter what I am visiting for, 6 month check-up, root canal (lord help me), or whatever my teeth need Dr. Sahafi and her team are #1. They are knowledgeable, personable, and prices are more than fair. I don’t feel people are able to say this often but I LOVE MY DENTIST!! Thank you Dr. Sahafi and to your staff who are as exceptional as you are!

Nima B. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Sahafi was a fantastic dentist, her staff was super fun to talk to and made me feel like I was a lifelong customer from the first visit! Plus, they made billing really easy, I never really had surprises to worry about, which is nice when you’re a college student. Will definitely go back!

Doris W. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love coming to this office. Yesterday I had a cleaning, X-rays, and whitening. I only had to pay for the whitening because every year I buy Dr. Kate’s insurance. At my age, 86, and because of all the meds I take, Jonelle, Dr. Kate and I decided I should come in every 4 months. Good choice. I don’t want to lose teeth.

Bita B. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahafi was amazing! Both her and her staff were so friendly and professional. They really helped me with my insurance and made everything so easy. I highly recommend coming here! I won’t go anywhere else!

Kendra P. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Sahafi at Dover Dental for almost 10 years now, after my sister came home raving about how wonderful she was. She is the most competent, professional, honest, generous and compassionate individual. Even when my insurance did not cover my visits to her I paid out of pocket because I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else.  Dr. Sahafi gave me discounts without even being asked. She is not only generous with her patients but she gives back to local charities as well. I work for a non-profit and Dr. Sahafi has always been proactive in asking how she can help and follows through on providing support.

Taylor P. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family has been going to Dover Dental since I was probably about 12 years old, Dr. Sahafi has treated my Dad, Mom, and little sister for over 10 years maybe even longer. I have been consistently satisfied with Dr. Sahafi and her dedicated Dental assistants. Her dental assistants are two of the nicest, caring people. I am not too good of a patient I must say I give them a hard time with rescheduling and they always take it with ease. I come in at my appointment time and they always take me right back. The exam rooms and the place itself is kept very clean and has great decor. The exam rooms also have very high-end equipment and a comfortable almost spa-like atmosphere. Every time I go there I am always happy when I leave.

Olivia O. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Google)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Sahafi for over two years and she is by far the best dentist I’ve ever seen. She’s super friendly and helpful and so is the rest of her staff. She came highly recommended by a friend of mine and I would definitely recommend her to anyone in the Orange County area!

Nilu K. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Google)


I am so pleased with Dr Sahafi and her staff. Not only they made special arrangements to see me on the requested day, which was the only day I could go to the office, they also made my day. Who would have thought going to the dentist to be so much fun? They are really fun and yet so professional. I’m so pleased with the results and highly recommend them.

A great dental practice with polite, caring and professional staff. I have been going to Dover Dental for more than 6 years and Dr Sahafi is just great. Highly recommend Dover Dental.

Dorothy S. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahafi and staff make a dental visit easy. The office is so clean and welcoming. I was pleased to have a crown made in the office. Great to do this in one visit, instead of a 2 week temporary and another visit.

Ray K. from Laguna Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dover Dental for several years now. I have been very satisfied. The staff is very courteous and professional. The doctor is very knowledgeable and takes her time to explain my options. I was never pressured to do any unnecessary procedures. Great office. Great staff. Great location. Thanks, Dover Dental.

Ryan W. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahafi and her staff are incredibly kind and professional.  They genuinely go out of their way to accommodate you and make sure your needs are addressed. The office environment is nice, the care I have received has been well executed and thorough.  I highly recommend Dover Dental (…).

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


I moved here from Hawaii 3 years ago and have been going to see the girls at Dover Dental since then. They have provided excellent service!! From cleanings to crowns they have always exceeded my expectations. Dr Sahafi and her staff are friendly and have provided painless dentistry to myself and my family. I would highly recommend them to everyone.

I love Dr Sahafi and all her staff!! I worked with her as a hygienist and recently retired but miss them all! She’s a wonderful dentist and it’s a happy place. Love to go see them all!!

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


We have been patients of Dover Dental for a long time now.  The staff is friendly and prompt, and the dentist Kate Sahafi is very nice and personable.  They do a great job with dental cleanings and work.  We have even had to call them for emergency work before and they immediately made room for us to rush in and were very caring and helpful. We definitely feel they have made a great effort to not only care for our teeth but also build a personal relationship with us.

Laura N. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Sahafi and Anette provide a dental experience that is stress and pain-free. The obvious and genuine caring they feel for their patients is so appreciated and important. Actually, the entire staff is the very best! I can recommend Dover Dental without any reservation!

Laura P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Facebook)


Love the ladies at Dover Dental!! Dr. Sahafi and her attentive staff had been taking care of me and my mouth for years. I’d definitely recommend seeing her!

Joe R. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was just in for a teeth cleaning and as usual, it was excellent. The hygienist was highly professional and thorough, but with that friendly, personal charm which makes the dreaded visit to the dentist fun and interesting. Keep up the good work.

Dr. Sahafi and her staff are just awesome! They have gone above and beyond for my daughter. I will be forever thankful

Diane M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dover Dental for 5 years and this was the first time I needed fillings. Dr Sahafi and her assistant were great. Two fillings in less than an hour and no pain. This office is great and I would highly recommend this office for all your dental needs.
