Dr. Sam has been fantastic. He and his staff have been friendly, informative, and done great work. His place is clean ,well lit, comfortable, and has TVs on the ceilings for patients.

I needed a couple crowns, had an infection that needed a root canal, deep cleaning, and a filling. I barely felt any pain at all. Most of it was the initial injections of painkillers. They always kept me informed on what I needed done in what order, and what they were doing while working on my teeth. Dr. Sam checks with me during procedures to make sure I’m okay and not in pain.

Going to the dentist is always been stressful for me and Dr. Sam makes it much more bearable to the point I don’t dread going to an appointment. He has also helped me in terms of coming up with payment options and plans to help me get the most done without causing me to go broke. I strongly recommend Fresh Dental and Dr. Sam.

Dr. SAM is the best dentist ever!!! I had a tooth infection on Mother’s Day, every dental places were closed. Fresh Dental came up on Yelp and I called to see if I have any luck. Dr. Sam picked up the phone and he said they were closed at first.After knowing that I have an unfinished root canal tooth by my previous dentist, and it looks like its infected cause my whole cheek had swollen up. he’s willing to come back at 8 pm and open the dental just for me!!! The place is clean, nice vibe and great design. Dr. Sam is very detail oriented, he explained everything step by step and make sure you are comfortable with it. He care about his patients. I don’t have insurance and can’t afford the payment like in 1 whole payment, Dr. Sam is willing to arrange different payment options for me. Dental Appointment was always a nightmare since I was born, after coming here to Fresh Dental, not anymore. They have a great membership plan too! If you are still hesitating, just give them a call or drop by their place. You’ll know what I’m talking about. <3

My visit to Fresh Dental set a very high standard of how other dentistry clinics should be! There is plenty of parking and I immediately noticed how clean and modern the space is. I was able to watch Netflix while waiting for my teeth whitening procedure to finish! Dr. Sam and his assistants were all very sweet and accommodating throughout my visit. I am extremely impressed with everyone I met and absolutely love the results. Thank you, Dr. Sam!

Best dentist I’ve ever been to by miles. Dr. Sam does great work and helps make things as easy as possible. I’ve had a couple crowns, an infection that needed a root canal, a filling, pulled a couple wisdom teeth, and cleanings and I’ve experienced at most a tiny amount of pain. He came up with payment options and which things were a priority to help me get the most out of my money.

The office is clean. comfortable, has TVs in the ceilings which was a first for me. I find a nature documentary can really help distract from the unpleasant noises of the drills.

I strongly recommend Fresh Dental. The staff is awesome, friendly, informative, helpful, and does great work.

First of all you walk into a beautifully designed boutique style practice that’s looks so effortlessly luxurious yet casual. Second the staff is relaxed and joyful. And best of all, Dr. Sam is tranquil, confident, and super caring. I had a deep cleaning done with lidocaine shots and he went the extra mile to administer the shots in the most pain free way possible.  Numbing gel first, then preloading, then initial superficial numbing, then deep numbing. Felt like a little pin prick and that’s about it. My teeth were cleaned better than ever before and my gums were not doing too well on my right side but after the cleaning they are looking brand new!

I can’t recommend Fresh Dental highly enough. I’ve had dental issues most of my life so I have had a lot of experience with dentists. My brother spoke highly of them and said I should go. Very glad I listened to him because now I’m in less pain then I have been in years. Dr. Saesim is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. I usually get pretty anxious at doctors and dentist but between the doctor and extremely friendly staff I had an easy time being relaxed. By far the most comfortable I have been during any procedures is here. My teeth situation isn’t great yet they never made me feel bad for it only try their best to get it improved. Plus the prices and hours are great. If you are looking for a new, closer to home, more flexible hours, or aren’t completely satisfied with your dentist definitely should try Fresh Dental.

Had deep cleaning done with Dr. Sam and his staff. Very comfortable and modern environment. Very friendly staff. Procedure went very well and I will definitely be coming back. Thank you!

Brandon A. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would give more stars if I could! First off, this office has such convenient hours and such a great sense of urgency. I called on a Sunday morning after calling many other places in agony over an infection, and Dr.Sam was so friendly and accommodative and saw me right away! He had me taken care of from the get go with superb service and might I add a very cool-looking welcoming office! Also, he referred me to an amazing specialist that same day.

I never have left a dental office feeling excited to come back before this, and that says a lot. I’m glad that I found this place and am recommending it to my friends and family!

Yvette P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I chipped my front tooth. I do not have insurance and thought for sure I’d have to take a trip to Tijuana to find anything affordable. Nope. This office is sparkling clean. The staff is professional and kind. Took me in right away and I left with a perfect smile at a more than fair cost. I can’t recommend them enough.

Meladie S. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long overdue. Now that I have sometime to write an official review for Dr Sam and his staff.

Long story short, I came into his office on a Thursday evening at 9 pm right after work. I had an extremely painful toothache which resulted in having to getting an emergency tooth extraction that same evening. I didn’t get out of the chair until 12 am (they close at 11 pm, sorry guys) but I had an outwardly good experience as Dr Sam and his staff made sure I was comfortable and didn’t experience “too much pain” during the process. I must say that Dr Sam is a trooper for taking his sweet ass time removing my tooth. His staff were also very patient with me and held my hands during the entire process.

I healed very well a few weeks later and we had discussed about either having a bridge or implant. I kept going back and forth with my decisions, but for the temporary replacement, I have a fake tooth that looks real and it fits comfortably.

I would highly recommend seeing Dr Sam and visiting his beautiful office!!!!!!!!

Dr. Sam and his team at Fresh Dental are amazing! Dr. Sam is very knowledgeable and listens to his patients needs. He makes sure that you are well taken care of every step of the way, including following up after any work is completed on your teeth! The office staff and dental hygienist are also very sweet and helpful! I recommend Fresh Dental to all patients!

I came in for an exam and cleaning. The office is really nice and upbeat. The staff was very friendly and inviting. Claudia and Tiffany were super friendly. After filling out a few forms on an iPad, I was taken back immediately to the treatment room. Dr. Sam then came in and went over everything with me and explained things in detail. I then got my teeth cleaned. The whole procedure and appointment went very well. I was able to watch netflix while getting my teeth cleaned. I would def recommend this office to anyone and I’m glad I came in!

I ended having to get a crown and I’m so happy with it. It looks perfect, I bet no one could ever tell it’s not my tooth!

The staff was very kind. The office is nice, clean, organized and modern. I had a very pleasant experience and the TV screen (Netflix) on the ceiling helped me relax. I also got free samples (toothpaste, toothbrush and two type of floss). I already had a cleanup and will go back to replace some fillings.

Tida T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing experience! Dr. Sam was very welcoming and professional. I absolutely loved how sweet all of his staff members were. The clinic is very clean and modern. I was able to watch Netflix while waiting for my teeth whitening procedure to finish! I enjoyed my experience here and would highly recommend Dr. Sam. Thank you Fresh Dental for a wonderful experience! Will be back again!

Joe L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sam is a caring and honest dentist. To be honest, nobody likes getting poked by a needle and getting drilled on, so no dental experience is really any good for me. But what I like about Dr. Sam is that he takes pride in his work and makes me feel like he will do his best. Other than the doctor, the office is really new looking and clean. It makes me feel good that the doctor is keeping up with the new technology (compared to other dentists I’ve been to who are outdated). I’d recommend this place to others!

My experience at fresh dental was very positive. The office is located very close to the freeway exit in a nice complex, easy to locate. When I arrived for my appointment time, Dr. Sam and Tiffany welcomed me at the front desk and they already knew my name! (From appointment I assume). I had my teeth whitened and was little nervous but Dr. Sam explained very thoroughly, gave me opportunity to ask questions, took time to explain about x-ray of my teeth, and made me feel comfortable. Tiffany was also excellent and made sure I understood everything, explained step by step of what she is going to do, and made sure I was doing ok during the whitening. I am happy with the result of whitening. Even with my sensitive teeth, I was able to go through most of the whitening treatments pretty relaxed because I was watching TV on the ceiling. I will continue whitening treatment/maintenance with take home trays. The office was very inviting, clean, and cozy. It made me feel like I am at a nice cafe. I highly recommend Fresh dental and Dr. Sam and his team with Tiffany, and Claudia at front desk. Everyone was very kind and approachable. Thank you very much!

Dr. Sam and his team are amazing not to mention the office has a very fresh vibe . I took my mom today and even though it was Easter Sunday, Dr. Sam took great care of her with a lot of care. She loved the way he was extremely reassuring and put her at ease. She keeps saying that if she wasn’t a visitor to the area, she would have absolutely been a regular patient of Fresh Dental and she’s encouraging me to come here as well 🙂

Sarah W. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


My friend referred me to Dr. Sam, and oh boy was he good! He was very patient in listening to me explain my discomfort and assured me we will get through this together. He was very kind and made me feel comfortable and could trust him with my problems. I’m very happy with the experience and will definitely recommend him to anyone seeking professional dentist in Santa Ana.

The first time I met Dr. Saesim, I was smiling through literal tears. I had an agonizing tooth ache that ended up being an infection. They took me in same day, telling me over the phone (on a Sunday!!) to get there as quickly and safely as I could and they would take care of me, and that’s exactly what they did. I work in the medical field and was (prior to my experience here) very VERY skeptical of the business practices of dental offices. In the past I had been lied to, scammed, taken advantage of, and left with more problems then going in for. I began to avoid dental care at all costs, solely because I couldn’t find a dentist that I could trust. That has all changed for me after my first visit to Fresh Dental. They took my discomfort seriously and I was immediately put in a chair and Dr. Saesim worked his magic. I’ve never met a staff who is more gentle, more aware, more upfront, or more informative. If I have questions about billing, they will show me the entire breakdown of the costs and insurance details. If I have questions about my dental care, Dr. Saesim walks me through every possible option and their individual pros and cons and then… get this… LETS ME DECIDE what I think is best. They never push for an up sell or try to encourage a more expensive alternative. This is a dentist who is doing good and honest work to genuinely help people; when I didn’t think there were any of those left in this world. Thank you Dr. Saesim and all your wonderful staff for everything you’ve done for me and continue to do for me.

Also; this wasn’t just a one time visit. I think I’ve been back like 4 times already. We’re tackling every and any dental issue I have now, because I found a place I can trust. I’m never going anywhere else!

I’d like to highly recommend this place for people who find themselves dealing with a sense of dread related with a visit to the dentist. I’ve been Fresh Dental twice for whitening and treating cavities and here’s the things you can expect when you go there : First, kind and friendly staffs (Tiffany and Claudia) are gonna greet you and serve you with a beautiful smile. Second, the atmosphere of dentistry reminds you of being in a modern coffee shop. Everything looks good and neat. You can also enjoy watching TV on the ceiling during treatment. All of these thing are not just only for looks good, but also for making people feel comfort and relax. Surprisingly, I wasn’t in pain at all with my cavity treatment! The last and the best part of experiences at Fresh Dental is Dr. Sam’s way how to help patient with anxiety. He is so calm, very attentive, generous and willing to know any concerns most patients might have. I felt like he treated me more than just a patient so then I was really thankful for that. I’d like to say all of the people in town should try to check this place out for your dental checkup and for sure it would be a pleasure moment for everyone 🙂

I’ve known Dr. Sam for a while and I had dental works done by him before. He is very nice and honest and I fully trust him with my dental needs. I’ve had a chance to visit his new dental office and this place is modern and beautifully designed. Staffs here are also really nice and personable. They made me felt comfortable the whole time I was there. They even offer personal selections of Netflix and pillow during treatment! I would highly recommend Dr. Sam for anyone looking for a dentist in Santa Ana.

I came here for teeth whitening. I’ve had a couple friends come to this office and they were all happy with the results so I decided to give it a try. I just got my braces off today and I have a big event tomorrow so I wanted to try teeth whitening for the first time. First of all, the office is really nice and the staff were very friendly and warm. Dr. Sam and Maria walked me through the whole procedure. I was a little scared at first but they quickly made me feel comfortable by allowing me to take off my shoes, get comfy with a cozy blanket. They also gave me the remote to watch Netflix while I was laying back. The whitening session itself was comfortable. Dr. Sam and Maria were very gentle while performing the procedure. I watched tv and they turned the lights off so it was relaxing. After it was done, I saw the results and was super happy!!! They got so much whiter! Now my teeth are straight and white! I would highly recommend this office!

I came in for a checkup and cleaning. Dr. Sam was thorough and cleaned my teeth real well  I came on a Sat afternoon and appreciate their flexible hours.  I also really enjoyed watching Netflix while getting my teeth cleaned.  It was a very good way to distract me. The office is nicely designed and refreshing.  I highly recommend this dental office.

Mikia K. from Loma Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had an amazing experience at Dr. Sam’s office, even though I’m deathly afraid of having anything teeth related done. His office is so beautiful and inviting, the staff was friendly and helpful, and Dr Sam was nothing but professional, honest and thorough! The tv screen directly overhead was super helpful in distracting me while getting a much needed cleaning. If you’re looking for a friendly, honest dentist in a beautiful office, look no further!

Rohany L. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Fresh Dental! I went in last week to get my teeth cleaning &whitening. The beautiful lady in front of the office greeted me with a big smile and the warmest welcome. The staff ( I believe her name is Tiffany) she is very kind and polite. She kept checking on me while I was having my teeth bleaching.
Dr. Sam was very professional while having consultation with him. He explained me in a very clear way what kind of treatment was necessary. Thank you Fresh dental for taking a good care of me. I’m very happy with my new smile!

I had a tooth emergency whereby my tooth started bleeding due to an infection. It was the evening and Dr. Sam was about to close, but agreed to see me when he heard that it was bleeding. I went in, and there to greet me was Dr. Sam and Tiffany (his dental assistant). Their office is modern and clean – it looks like it was taken out of a magazine. Both were so down to earth and made my experience comfortable (including giving me a blanket while I was getting treatment). Turns out, I needed a root canal. I was in so much pain that I literally begged them to consider just doing the root canal that evening, and they DID. I’m so grateful that they took time out of their evening to ease my way. I was very nervous (had a traumatic dentist experience as a child), but they comforted me throughout the 2-hour treatment, and I was able to watch a movie on Netflix to distract me. The root canal was painless, and now I’m tooth-ache free. Thank you Fresh Dental, especially Dr. Sam and Tiffany, for being there for me!

Dr Sam and Tiffany made me feel super welcomed! They were friendly and went over options I had without any pressure. Dr Sam was very patient and listened to what I had to say. Also, I have to say the cleaning has been the most gentle cleaning I have ever had!

Mikhail A. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sam Saesim and his team are awesome! I went in today with a chipped front tooth looking to get a filling to get my smile back.  Not only did he perfectly execute the filling (the color is awesome, it’s smooth, and looks natural), it was painless and quick.

His staff, Maria and Tiffany are equally as awesome. They’re friendly and attentive, and I can honestly say that this visit was FUN. I’m incredibly happy with the result, customer service, and the environment.  It’s awesome.

I went their and had my teeth whitening and fillings done. I was very happy and impressed with the excellent services and professional dental treatments of all Fresh Dental staffs. Dr. Sam is very attentive and thorough. He took time to explain me about my teeth x-ray and photos and provided me a lot of useful information and suggestions. He’s also very gentle with his work especially when it came to the scariest part for me,anesthetic injection,which surprisingly was painless under his hands. Two thumbs up!!!!
Dr. Sam’s assistant,Tiffany, is very nice and sweet. She explained everything she was doing and made sure I was comfortable throughout the whole process. They did put me at ease so I didn’t have to worry about anything just relaxed and watched Netflix with my preferable program.
The result, now I have a brighter smile and more confidence. Thanks to Dr.Sam and his awesome team.

Ellen S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve known Dr. Sam for about seven years, and I must say he is a very kind and honest person.  The office is clean and modern with pleasant staff and happy patients.
Dr Sam and his team are very professional and accommodating from the moment I dialed their number to make an appointment until completion of my visit.

If you’re looking for a dentist, give it a try at Fresh Dental! Dr. Sam ensures you’ll be treated well and have a pleasant experience as he hopes to change some of the negative experience patients may had at their past dental visits.

Robert Nagano (Source: Google)


I went in as kind of an emergency visit, they were able to see me right away. Dr. Sam was very informative and upfront. He seemed genuinely invested in my dental needs and was very helpful since I haven.t been to a dentist in an number of years and have a lot of other medical issues. Very clean welcoming office, I think I found a new dentist to move my family to.

Sophia Aceron (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Samuel is by far my favorite dentist! He has great talent and people skills. He’s really great at what he does and he goes above and beyond to make sure you’re comfortable and happy.
The staff is very friendly and attentive. They are always there if you need any help or to answer any of your questions.
Love this place! Definitely would recommend to my friends and family.

Laura M. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Sam and his staff are friendly and do an awesome job! I have had my teeth cleaned, two crowns and whitening and couldn’t be happier. The office is immaculately clean and up to date with modern technology. I have recommended several of my coworkers and friends to check it out.

Irma Elizabeth Mariscal Aizprúa (Source: Facebook)


Thank you Dr. Sam for your willingness to come and check my toothache in your day off!
Highly recommended place! Excellent and friendly service ( Tiffany and Claudia) . The office is new, modern and very clean. I’m happy that my problem is solved! Grateful to my friend Lydiana who brought me
