Check out what some happy patients are saying about us:

Asawari D. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family has been blessed to have a caring dentist like Dr. Neela Ghatnekar. We have been going to Dr. Neela for dental care for over past 5 years.
We switched to her when my younger one was 2 yrs old and we had a traumatic experience with other so called pediatric dentistry practice. My little one was traumatized with that visit so much that he started struggling even with brushing. It was no fun for anyone..

I was so relieved when we finally started taking him to dr. Ghatnekar. Within a couple of visits, my little one started getting comfortable with her and started trusting her. Since then all his dental problems have been under control.

Even today, Dr takes time to make sure kids get comfortable and relaxed before starting their exam. Now kids trust her and they cooperate which makes dental exams go smoothly. Dr. makes a followup call the same or next day to make sure everything is good. Who does care so much for patients?

Dr. Ghatnekar is very knowledgeable and gentle. Her staff is excellent and they always welcome you with smiles.

To all who are looking for a trustworthy and caring dentist, I would recommend Dr. Neela Ghatnekar in a heartbeat.

Best dental office experience ever!!
It had been a while, so I wasn’t sure what to expect. I had a coworker highly recommend Dr. Ghatenekar. Making the appt was simple. Carmen worked with my busy schedule & I went in a few days later. Carmen was at the front desk when I arrived & welcomed me in with a beautiful smile. I warned Roger, the dental assistant, that I gagged on X-rays….he made it very fast, Thank goodness!! I apparently had 3 cavities…
BEST PART EVER…didn’t feel the shots!!! No Joke…i was DREADING that part for nothing!!!She was soooo gentle & nice & actually took the time to explain things!!!
Even scheduled a 6 month check up!! Thanks again to the whole team!!

This dentist is without a doubt, the best I have EVER been to. I highly recommend this place, they are caring, patient, kind and genuinely want to help. THE BEST! =)

We have been seeing Dr Neela for many years now. She is such a kind Dr. An amazing dentist who is always gentle and thorough. She explains everything in detail and takes the time to answer any questions and listen to any concerns. On top of regular dental work she also did my Invisalign.
Her assistants are gentle and professional but also friendly and funny. The front office staff is on top of things and always sends a reminder before your appt so you don’t forget.

Larry C. from Rowland Heights, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing experience! I am so privileged to have found this dental office. It’s located in Anaheim Hills, in a very clean and beautiful building right off the freeway. Upon walking in, I met with the receptionist was was not only professional but very informative. She knew exactly how to handle my questions and make me feel at ease about everything. Also, I need to give a big THANK YOU to all of the staff here who are so friendly. I also am really thankful to have met Dr. Ghatnekar who is one of the most kindest and skilled dentist I have ever met. I can’t wait to get treatment done here and am so impressed how this office functions as a well organized team. I can’t stop racing to my friends about this place. Thank you Dr. Ghatnekar for being so kind and gentle. Also thank you for giving Anaheim Hills and it’s a surrounding area top quality dental care.

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


This experience called for it. Dr. Ghatnekar and her staff go above what you would expect from a visit to the dentist. Not only does she do an excellent job in her procedures, but ensures that you get the best care possible. She’s very passionate about what she does and it’s very clear through her work and attention to detail. Would definitely recommend.

I have been absolutely petrified of the idea of going to a dentist for 14 years. I made an appointment with Neela Ghatnekar DDS because I chipped my tooth. The entire time, her and her staff treated me kindly and were so patient with my nervousness. I had such a good experience that I made another appointment to go have some other things taken care of. Thank you so much to you and your amazing team who truly made me feel safe and unafraid.

Arianna M. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghatnekar has been nothing short of amazing to my whole family and I. There are 4 of us and we all love her. She is very quick and thorough with her work, no pain the next day, and makes payments easy and affordable.

John Rejniak (Source: Google)


I am impressed with the meticulous quality of the dental work being done, the caring and professionalism of the entire staff, and it’s my opinion that I could not have done better. I’m very happy that I was able to select this dental practice. Moreover, I’m forgetful. I get text messages and/or phone calls to remind me of appointments, which I appreciate.

Laura P. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was my first visit to Dr. Neela J. Ghatnekar office and Carmen was very nice and welcoming. Laura the dental assistant was amazing she explained everything in detail about the conditions in my mouth so I had a much more clear and understand. The doctor make me feel like I was part of a family there . I referred my family to go here and I would refer anyone to go come to this office if you want to fully understand  Thank you so much to all the information, and I will do my very best to keep up my teeth

I usually don’t post about how amazing dentists are but Dr. Neela Ghatnekar is the best dentist in the world. I have absolutely terrified of the dentist my entire life until Dr. Neela came into my life. My whole family are patients at this office including my special needs son. I wish i would have met her a long time ago for my dental treatment. Now yes I do work for her but I’m not saying it because she is my boss its because she is an amazing at what she does. I love her as my dentist and plan on having her help me keep my oral health in tip top shape.

Ryan S. from Camillus, NY (Source: Yelp)


It’s been more than a few years since I’d been to the dentist, and I did have 4 cavities so I knew I was going to get what I deserved. However Dr. Neela has restored my faith in dentistry not being a painful experience. She was kind, up front with everything I did and did not need, and most importantly she was gentle. I barely felt the needles and the whole thing went off without a hitch. She was fantastic and the staff were amazing as well. I couldn’t be more impressed.

Emily D. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


As someone who had bad experiences with dentists in the past, I was reluctant at first. I felt pretty silly after my first visit, because Doctor Ghatnekar is an incredible dentist that goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. The environment is friendly and she simply wants to help you achieve that perfect smile. It’s 16 miles one way to her office, and I’m happy to make that drive because she’s the only dentist I’ve been satisfied with.

Dr. Ghatnekar is both highly competent and compassionate. I brought in a friend with dementia who needed a lot of dental work done ; extractions, root canals, crowns and false teeth. She did it strategically and with great patience. The front staff and dental assistants were also very warm and welcoming every time we came over several months.

Grace K. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had no problems scheduling an appointment here in a timely manner. Dr. Ghatnekar was super nice and so was the staff. Love this place!

Amazing experience with this office!! Staff has worked along with my insurance to provide me with the best dental health! Staff also has great energy and always very warm and optimistic! 🙂
Very happy to have a dentist I enjoy going to!

Jenn M. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience was great. I needed a crown on my front tooth & was concerned with how it would look, but Dr. N was very professional and used the newest and best materials to make sure that my tooth looked natural and better than it did before & she did everything she could to keep my costs low. I am very happy with the way it turned out

I brought my daughter here to get a filling, mind you she is 4! Dr. Ghatnekar and her staff we’re so warm and welcoming to her she felt safe and secure! Before I knew it they were finished and my daughter actually enjoyed her time spent getting a cavity filled! Thank you so much for making my daughter feel like she could trust you and for helping her first experience getting major work done on her tooth a great one!

This dentist office is great! From the front desk to the hygienists, everyone is very friendly and professional. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen, they are always prompt with their appointments. Dr. Ghatnekar is very nice and very good. She always makes you feel comfortable with whatever procedure you are having done, and is very detail oriented with her work. I would highly recommend this dentist office to anyone looking for a family friendly dentist.

Kevin C. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have horrible teeth. She has never put me down or said things to make me feel bad about it. Shes working with me to be healthier teeth wise. So far I’ve had 4 teeth removed. She was aware i was super scared, so we talked about everything and i asked a out Nitrous. She is always making sure I’m good as shes going everything, basically pulling and putting the stitches in. Her assistant? Roger always makes me relaxed and checks on me. This is a great office to go to. The front desk people are nice always and  help me get times with her when i can get there. 30 mins from work and 45 mins from home. She calls to see how things are going and reminds me of what to do next. She has given me her cell number to ask questions if needed.

Dr. Ghatnekar is very caring and thorough. She genuinely cares about giving you the best possible treatment. The staff are very warm, friendly and engaging. They never fail to remind you of your appointment and are very good at moving the appointment at a later time if on short notice. There is practically no wait time. I am very satisfied with their quality of work.

Xavier C. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dental office I have been to, out of the 5 or 6 I’ve been to in my life. Dr. is a great dentist, she really helps you make the correct decision for your dental health while working within your financial abilities. She is also extremely gentle and puts a lot of effort, physical effort included, to the point where I am often surprised how quickly work is completed and at the painlessness of the numbing shot. All in all best experience you can have going to the dentist.

Crys D. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was so nervous coming to my appointment to get my fillings but I totally siked myself out.  I love love Dr. Neela.  she is so gentle and comforting. The shot to numb me wasn’t even painful because she is  so gentle and just knows what she is doing. I didn’t feel anything tugging and she didn’t shove her hands in my mouth like previous dentist I’ve been to. Everything she does is with ease and perfection.   She was truly meant to be a Dentist, she loves what she does and it shows.  Her work is amazing! if you need a dentist try her out you wont be disappointed.

Aqil T. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Neela was amazing! Came as a first time patient (admittedly a little bit late but they still took me). Helped me with what I needed. The whole staff was very nice and it was a very easy process. Explained a little about the intricacies of insurance and what was best for me too. Super quick, no excessive wait time. Best. Ever.

Susan Yada (Source: Google)


I have been going to Dr. Neela for many years now. She and her assistant always make sure you are comfortable during whatever procedure you are having done. Her office staff is also very helpful with answering any questions you may have about the procedure or the billing. I highly recommend Dr. Neela.

Lynn S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve had in years. My family is very happy with her and her staff. The wait to be seen is never very long, and she really cares about her patients.

Excellent woman, doctor and customer service. Thank you for the Invisalign service.

Alan C. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghatnekar is an exceptional dentist and a great care provider.  She is not only extremely competent, but has an extraordinary level of empathy for patient outcome and comfort.  She has redone a number of my fillings, fixed several troublesome spacing/shape issues and installed two inlays.  The inlays were done as opposed to root canals with posts and crowns to preserve as much of my original teeth as possible. Through all procedures I experience minimal discomfort and, for the first time ever, no “post-Novocaine” boomerang effect.  She is careful to minimize trauma to your mouth, gums and other tissues while working on your teeth. Very happy with her services.

Amazing dentist!! Best one I have EVER been to. I know that seems like an exaggerated claim, but I mean every single word! Friendly, fun, helpful, caring and here to serve with a smile! Highly recommended!

Douglas M. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t usually write reviews but I think more people in the Anaheim California area should know about Dental health of Anaheim Hills (Monte Vista Dentistry). Before I moved to California in 2007, I haven’t been to the dentist in nearly 10 years. Yes I am one of those people who are scared of the dentist. It first started in 2010 when I had an infected molar that was given me so much pain it was keep me up at nights. One morning I got up and the pain was so bad that I started looking for dentist. A neighbor of mine recommended Dr. Neela Ghatnekar of Dental health of Anaheim Hills I called Dr. Neela and explained to her the excruciating pain I was in. She told me to come down right away and she would take a look. As soon as I arrived I gave my name to the receptionist and Dr. Neela left word with her that as soon as I came in to bring me into one of the examination rooms. While I was waiting for the doctor to come in I looked around the examination room and everything looked brand-new. The machines, the paint on the walls, the countertops and cabinets were all spotless. Saying that this examination room was clean is an understatement…… it was spotless When she came into the examination room she introduced herself and started the examination right away and concluded that I had a infected molar and it needed to be removed . I had myself convinced that it was going to be an extremely painful extraction. To my amazement it was painless. I figured after the Novocain wore off that the pain would come back and again I was surprised that all I had was a little soreness. No pain just a little soreness. I had no dental insurance and again I was surprised on how reasonable the bill was for the amount of work that she had to do. I just had another painless extraction and a bone graph too and Dr. Neela had recommended me having a partial made since it was a front tooth. I was very impressed by the quality and precision fit of the partial and even more impressed by the price. If you’re like me and are scared of the dentist Dr. Neela of Dental health of Anaheim Hills is the person to see. 

Yiayia C. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


So far so good! I’ve neglected my dental health for years and I have a dentist phobia so needless to say I was VERY worried about this visit. I finally have dental insurance and Dr Neela is the only dentist for miles that accepts my insurance. Despite the extent of work needed, poor insurance and limited funds, Dr Neela went above and beyond to make this work! She’s extremely gentle and tells it like it is. She discussed all my options and negotiated with me on price and payment schedule. Her work so far (I still have more to do) has been excellent! I’m not afraid to continue and I’m motivated to take better care of my teeth. I’ll post again a few months after all the work is done so stay tuned.
Her support staff have all been friendly and skilled too!

Rick V. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


To start, the desk staff was fantastic and very accommodating. The office and exam rooms were super clean and organized.

I was in for an exam and cleaning this morning and it all went very smoothly. The doctor was great. Very quick and thorough with her work yet still gentle. My previous dentist was very rough and I often left with a bad taste in my mouth (figuratively).

After the exam and cleaning, the woman at the front desk walked me through the work I needed and educated me on the procedures and why they needed to be performed using pictures and x-rays of my own teeth.

I will definitely be returning for my follow up visits and I won’t be neglecting my 6 month cleanings anymore.

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


I paid my first visit to the office for an exam and consultation on some discomfort that I’m having. I appreciate that they treated me with empathy and respectfully as a human being instead of a patient. Every single thing was explained to me in simple terms. Every single question was patiently answered. The visit didn’t end until they were satisfied that I had every concern taken care of. This will be my new dentist and I won’t hesitate to refer friends and family moving forward.
