Dr. Frial has been taking care of my kids teeth for the past 4 years, and we’re in the home stretch with my son. He required two phases and my daughter one. They now have the most beautiful teeth I’ve ever seen (of course I’m biased), no kidding! Dr. Frial and the office staff were so easy to work with, very flexible and accommodating. Dr. Frial spent time explaining everything that was happening with their teeth each step of the way. He was also in communication with the kid’s dentist, so they were in agreement with the best course of treatment for their situation. During the beginning of the COVID-19 quarantine my daughter needed an emergency adjustment. Dr. Frial made arrangements for us to meet him in the office during this difficult time when his office and all other ortho offices were closed. Allison was wonderful, the office manager. She was patient with all my insurance questions, and even helped me understand the complicated process to use my Flexible Spending Account to help pay off our balance a few months ago. The quotes I received from Allison at the start of their treatment plans remained the same throughout the course of their treatment, and I never paid another penny.  And one more thing…Dr. Frial and the staff took the time to get to know my kids, baseball, softball elementary, middle, high school, and all their other activities. Frial Orthodontics is a dental care team that treats you like family. Thanks, Dr. Frial!

Yesterday my daughter finished her orthodontist experience with getting her braces off! With two children over these past 12 years of care with Dr Frial and his staff we have only been shown professional, highly educated and friendly, helpful staff! Anyone looking for a honest, caring Orthodontist Please give them a call!

We love Dr. Frial and his staff. Everyone is so friendly and they explain the entire process. All three of our children have had braces so we feel like we have known Dr. Frial forever. We would recommend him and his staff with no question. Thank you for the years of beautiful smiles still to come.

It is a pleasure to write a review for Dr. Frial and his staff.  They make it easy and convenient to attain the smile of your dreams.  Dr. Frial came recommended to our family through our trusted dentist.  In my opinion, he is the best orthodontist in Orange County.  He’s a perfectionist and takes great care to help each patient have the best smile possible.  He’s also kind and gentle to each patient. The staff is always welcoming and helpful.  They do everything to accommodate schedules and billing.  Through the years, I felt as if I got to know each and every person in the office.  They are all so friendly and personable. Dr. Frial treated both my daughters.  They did phase one when they were younger and phase two as they matured.  They both have perfect smiles.  He also straightened my teeth using Invisalign and performed a miracle with my teeth.  This was my third (yes third) attempt at straightening my teeth.  No other orthodontist came close to the outcome Dr. Frial achieved.  As a fifty-year old woman I never would have dreamed my smile could look better than when I was in my twenties.  Thank goodness he is a perfectionist.  I love my smile. My youngest just got her braces removed.  We were so happy to have our last child’s braces removed, but with that came a little sadness.  We had visited their offices every month over a period of six years and I’ll miss the wonderful personalities and smiling faces whom I’ve come to know.

I am so pleased we chose Dr. Frial as our orthodontist.. Dr. Frial came highly recommended to us. He is professional, very personable, friendly, knowledgeable, and took the time to explain the treatment provided. The office staff is kind, accommodating, they have a beautiful office, conveniently located, plenty of parking, and modern equipment. They all deserve the highest review.  I really can not say enough wonderful things about our entire experience. We were thrilled with the final results. Our son just completed having  braces and retainers. As parents, it is one of the best investments and gifts we can give our son. He has an amazing smile for life and his confidence has grown. Thank you Dr. Frial and staff for making something families tend to dread going through, turn out to be a pleasant and timely experience. We also found your prices to be comparable and less than competitors. All around , a terrific investment!

I didn’t wear my retainers as a kid, so there I was, 20 (!?) years later with crooked teeth. My dentist recommended Dr. Frial’s office, and I’m glad she did. Dr. Frial and his staff are great! For about 18 months, I went to Dr. Frial for Invisalign treatment. The staff is so, so nice and it feels like family. Everyone is wonderful. They helped me get all set up with insurance and billing at the beginning, and then I made all my payments online – super easy! I went to the office every 6 weeks or so for new Invisalign trays. I always went during school hours so I never had a late/delayed appointment. The office is all very high-tech and it runs like clockwork. My appointments were in and out. Dr. Frial is great and answered all of my questions along the way. He’s a perfectionist, which I appreciate because my teeth look GREAT now  – better than I’d hoped. I don’t think it’s totally unusual for an adult to do orthodontia, but if you have any reservations about being an adult at a kiddie doc, don’t worry. This place is just as welcoming for grown-ups as it is for the kids. Overall, I would 100% recommend Dr. Frial and his awesome staff to anyone in need of braces/Invisalign. I also recommend that you diligently wear your retainers when you’re done with treatment so that you don’t have to do it again!

Dr. Frial and his staff cannot be beat!  My second child just finished his orthodontic treatment with Dr. Frial.  Like before after treatment of the first child was complete, we are fully satisfied and thrilled with the results.  Everyone is professional, highly capable, and has the patient’s best interests at heart.  My third child will soon be ready for orthodontic treatment, and I have no hesitation whatsoever planning for her treatment with Dr. Frial.  Three for three!  No regrets.

My younger son just finished orthodontic treatment today. Dr. Frial and staff were amazing throughout the years that both of my sons went through orthodontic treatment. They always run on time, explanations of treatment and cost were clear, scheduling was painless, and Dr. Frial and staff were always curteous. Great results. I highly recommend Dr. Frial and staff.

★★★★★

This review is long overdue, but better late than never!  Hands down, Dr. Frial and his staff are absolutely amazing and top-notch. My son needed braces and his dentist referred me to Dr. Frial.  After the initial consultation, I knew I did not need to go anywhere else.  Dr. Frial was informative, patient, and extremely thorough.  He gave a clear explanation of the process my son would have to go through and the reasons behind the treatment.  He didn’t scare me into thinking my son’s situation was so desperate nor did he treat the situation lightly.  He gave me the facts and his diagnosis — and there was so pressure to make any decisions right then and no feeling that he was trying to ‘sell’ me services that I didn’t need.  I went home and talked to my husband that night, but I knew I wanted to go with Dr. Frial.  I was also extremely impressed with his office staff and their organization, punctuality, and friendliness.  Just an excellent operation all around!  My son has now been through his phase one treatment (expander, spacers, braces, retainer) and is now in phase two. I still stand by my initial opinion of Dr. Frial and his office — truly exceptional.  They worked with me through financing the payment of the treatment, they are always on time, they are available when I call or have any questions or concerns, and my son’s care and treatment by Dr. Frial has been phenomenal. I couldn’t be happier with everything. Investing in braces, etc. is a huge commitment and you want to feel confident in the doctor, office, and the treatment plan.  I am more than happy with Dr. Frial and his staff and very grateful to all of them!  When it comes time for my younger son to see an orthodontist there is no question I will be going to Dr. Frial again.  I have also recommended a few friends here and they have had the same experience.  I have heard people say he isn’t the cheapest but to me that was never my first priority. I would highly recommend Dr. Frial!

Dr Frial is awesome!   He has taken care of both of my children for phase 1 and phase 2 and their smiles are beautiful.  We couldn’t be more pleased.  He goes above and beyond.  Once my son’s bracket came out of his expander on a Sunday and Dr Frial so kindly came in when the building was closed to fix it so my son could be more comfortable.  He and his office staff always go above and beyond to accommodate my challenging work schedule for appts and for their care.  I definitely recommend Dr Frial!.

Dr. Frial and his his team are absolutely wonderful. Starting with a comprehensive plan Dr Frial and Allison explained multiple options for my treatment. I knew upfront exactly what my treatment entailed, the cost, and the timeline. I was given what my insurance would cover. I am thrilled with the results! Office visits were a joy with his enthusiast team and I never waited longer than a minute – everything was so easy! The care that Dr Frial and his team provide is truly something that is so hard to find now a days! Can’t believe I waited so long!!

★★★★★

We have used Dr. Frial for both of our children’s braces and they have turned out excellent. We had a tragedy with our daughter’s mouth while she had the braces on and Dr. Frial came to the rescue. She was in a jumphouse and did a flip, unfortunately landing with her knee to her mouth. This caused severe trauma and the teeth were dangling from the braces (otherwise the front teeth would be missing). We called him late on a Saturday night for emergency help and he met us at his office around 9PM to stabilize the teeth. He then went with us to the oral surgeon’s office for the final reset of the teeth that night. Fortunately he saved her teeth from this accident and went above and beyond to make sure my daughter was taken care of in a professional and caring way (even though it was late on a Sat evening away from his family). If we would have gone to the ER, time would have been wasted and she would probably have lost her front teeth. I completely trust Dr. Frial and would highly recommend him to anybody needing a caring orthodontist who provides the upmost care to his patients.

After consulting with 2 orthodontists, I was still unsure if at my age (in my 50’s) whether I should have braces or not.  My teeth needed it badly but dragged my feet for 3 years before making a decision.  So I went to see Dr. Frial, the third orthodontist I’m checking out.  I am so glad I did.  I felt ‘at home’, from the front desk to the treatment room.  After the first visit, I didn’t feel awkward that I was the only adult patient around. The office is run smoothly, professionally and with caring staff. Appointments are managed very well because I always get called right away on my appointed time.  Also, I am away a lot and I appreciate very much how Dr. Frial worked out  the treatment schedule to work with mine. I like how he is very detailed person. Above all, he made my teeth look so much better.   Sincere thanks to Dr. Frial and EVERYONE in his staff.  Would be glad to refer you.

★★★★★

Dr. Frial and his team are by far the best, most comprehensive and advanced place you can go to for orthodontics in Orange County.  The office staff is phenomenal, always friendly,  and professional on the phone and in person.  The atmosphere is relaxing, comfortable and extremely clean. They have a video game room for the kids to use while they’re waiting for their appointment even though there is basically no wait.  Everything is automated, and they use state of the art equipment.  Before the appointment an email link reminder is delivered and a button to click to confirm it.  When you arrive with your kids, they personally check in by clicking on their image on the screen. From start to finish the parents are kept in the loop. In addition, he also communicates with the patient’s dentist when he sees any impending problems. Our oldest son went through two rounds of braces and today is very happy with perfect teeth.  His little brother is almost done with his second round.  Both enjoyed the ability to choose the colors of the rubber bands on their braces, and even the option to have custom pictures and images inside of their retainers.  The early treatment they were given when they were young ensured there was enough room for all their teeth to come in properly, and using the latest techniques, Dr. Frial was able to achieve all of this without any surgery.  Being an associate professor at UCLA, he is always learning and applying the latest techniques. There were numerous times for both kids where emergency appointments needed to be set up for various reasons, and we always received immediate attention. Because they play sports, trying to organize and get them in as required is incredibly difficult.  I cannot stress enough how accommodating their staff has been with us along these lines. I highly recommend this office to the young and the old, and feel very lucky to have discovered them in time to allow both of our kids to have perfect smiles.

Great office from the front desk on! Everyone is so helpful and the office is easy to get in and out of, with plenty to entertain little siblings, water, good magazines. Although I rarely even need that because they are really efficient so our appt.’s go quickly. Dr. Frial is the best, he knows what he is doing and both my son and daughter had a good experience and beautiful smiles to show for it. Thank you Dr. Frial and everyone at your office!

★★★★★

Dr. Frial is a top notch Orthodontist. He’s very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. I can say the same for his front office staff. I had two girls go through braces and in those years, we have NEVER had to wait for their appointments. Everything is run so efficiently. There is something to be said about punctuality! Both of my girls had braces and they have the most beautiful smiles now. I could not be more pleased! I would highly recommend Dr. Frial to anyone who is needing braces.

Karen L. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I am an older patient, already having had braces as a teenager. Over the years my teeth had shifted so much that I was experiencing tooth pain probably due to a changing bite.  I was recommended to Dr. Frial by my dentist and couldn’t have been more pleased with the recommendation. He is very friendly, professional, and as others have mentioned , a perfectionist,  which is good especially when it comes to your teeth and smile!  His staff is the same, which helps to keep his office running so smoothly. I just finished my Invisalign treatment which lasted just as Dr. Frial estimated.  I am very happy with the results and feel confident that Dr. Frial would provide the same quality service to everyone. I would recommend Dr. Frial and his staff for any orthodontic treatment.

I got braces when I was 22 and am now 24 with them off! I had to pull my canines down since I still had 2 baby teeth and was pretty nervous for how long it might take and the process being difficult. Dr.Frial is the best him and his staff really know what they are doing and were really awesome they made the whole process go smoothly and I was never worried I was in the wrong spot. The office is beautiful and the front desk ladies are the sweetest ever!! I highly recommend them for efficient visits and friendly faces.

★★★★★

Both of my kids had braces with Dr Frial. He and his office staff, especially Alison, who explains all of the insurance stuff, are FANTASTIC. Aside from being a great orthodontist, Dr Frial is also very honest. He told us that our daughter was scheduled to start her phase 2 this fall but that honestly, she could get a retainer to maintain her current smile, if we wanted to go that route. Most orthodontists would have proceeded to phase 2 and greedily taken our money. Not Dr Frial! He’s honest and genuinely cares about each family’s well being!!

I have been going to Dr Frial for over 20 years! First for myself then all three of my children. I recently needed to visit to have my permenant retainer reaffixed. My retainer has been in place for 20 years!! Dr Frial and his staff esp Allison! Are wonderful!!

Our son just got his braces off from Dr. Frial and it was nothing short of an excellent experience. Dr. Frial is very knowledgable and professional. We trusted him through the whole treatment. He is personable, communicative and top notch in his field. His entire staff is as well. They are very prompt, warm and friendly. Thank you to Dr. Frial and everyone in your office for making it a great experience!

Currently a patient here and could ask for no better orthodontist and staff!  I interviewed four other orthodontists to compare doctors, staff, office, and scheduling hours, before choosing this one and know I made the absolute best decision. I have Invisalign now (got a great deal during their promotion last year) and it is amazing!  I actually had braces years ago as a kid but never wore my retainer, hence the do-over.  Invisalign is SO MUCH EASIER and PAINLESS!  My teeth are straight and aligned and look so much better in photos than before.  I even refered my mom (she’s over 60!) who now has Invisalign with me! Being a working professional, I really like that this office is quiet and clean.  For each appointment, I hardly ever have to wait to be seen.  If you want a caring and educated team, I highly recommend Dr. Frial’s!

I highly recommend Dr. Frial. My older daughter, Alyssa, had her braces removed and her teeth look beautiful. My younger girl is still in the process. Not only is Dr. Frial extremely competent, he is a kind, gentle and wonderful to work with. My girls have never had a bad experience. They have always left his office smiling. His office staff is top notch. They are always there to help in any way. He doesn’t over schedule appointments, so you are always seen within 5 minutes of your appointment time. Can’t ask for more than that. Why go anywhere else. Dr. Frial gets an A+ from us! Annamarie Warkentin.

Dr. Frial does beautiful work!!  He is highly professional, honest, and a perfectionist.  I went to several orthodontists for consultations before Dr. Frial.  Others were recommending surgery for my daughter, when Dr. Frial was able to achieve her corrections simply with Invisaligns.  Dr. Frial used braces for my son’s crazy teeth, and they now look absolutely perfect.  I couldn’t be happier with their results.  Dr. Frial is also personal and very punctual, his office is immaculate, the staff is warm, and they run a very organized office.  I always recommend Dr. Frial to friends because I am so confident they will be very happy.

Dr. Frial and his staff are wonderful! We were referred to his office by a friend and we had a very successful experience. My son had an expander and braces and Dr. Frial did a fantastic job. I appreciated that he was always on time, his office is very well-maintained and his assistants are kind and gentle. I highly recommend Dr. Frial to all my friends that need an orthodontist for their children!

Thank you Dr. Frial for my beautiful straight teeth, even at 68 years old!  Dr. Frial straightened my teeth with Invisalign’s and I am so happy with the results!  I always enjoy my visits with him and his staff.  They are exceptionally friendly and very professional.  His office is very organized and immaculate. I have never had to wait, was in and out quickly.  I would highly recommend Dr. Frial to anyone, especially if you’re older as myself and contemplating,   “should I do this at my age?” Yes, do it!  Thank you girls and Dr.

We love Dr. Frial and all of the staff! Their level of professionalism is appreciated. They clearly communicate expectations and procedures, give honest recommendations, offer choices, and office wait time is minimal. My son’s teeth look great. He’s very happy with them!

Dr. Glenn P. Frial’s office is professional, knowledgeable, efficient and friendly. As an adult that went through the Invisalign treatment, I must share that I am extremely satisfied with the treatment I received. The staff was very patient and understanding with me when I had a few setbacks with my timeline. Dr. Frial’s expertise in orthodontics gave me much assurance of his capability in working with any situation presented. I highly recommend Dr. Frial and his staff for orthodontic work. Expect to always be greeted with a warm welcoming smile!

I cannot say enough about this place. I visited for 18 short months, not once were my appointments delayed and I never even waited in the waiting room. Remember when selecting a doctor that an Orthodontist has completed his additional schooling and a dentist preforming orthodontics is not as qualified to move your teeth. Dr. Glenn P Frial  (Orthodontist) gave me the smile I have always wanted. My teeth are perfect and I never thought they could be. He changed my life. Thank you all at Dr. Frial’s office.

Wendy F. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)

Dr. Frial is amazing! He worked with both my children and I highly recommend him to everyone! My son had to have two sets of braces, one in fourth grade to move his jaw, and another in middle school to straighten his teeth.  His situation was hereditary.  My husband many years earlier had to have a long and painful jaw surgery.  Thanks to Dr. Frial, my son was spared the painful surgery and long uncomfortable recuperation. For my daughter, he was able to straighten her teeth and close the gap that was bothering her for years. Dr. Frial is one of the nicest people I know.  His office runs on time.  His staff is respectful, kind and polite.  The person in his billing office (Alison) was great to work with and explained everything well, helping guide us through the insurance maze. Also, his office is immaculate! Dr. Frial is on staff at UCLA and I feel comfortable that he is on top of the newest techniques available.  His demeanor is of a soft, quiet confidence that puts the kids at ease from the moment they walk in the door and see his smile. His office is designed to help kids feel comfortable with gaming systems in the waiting area and  comfortable chairs in the back. One thing that strikes me about Dr. Frial’s practice is that they are very involved in the community — sometimes when no one knows. He is quietly generous to youth and school organizations. If you have to shop around for an orthodontist, you must consider Dr. Frial.  I am grateful my kids had the opportunity to have him as their orthodontist.

My daughter was seriously scared of dentists, so much so that we went through four pediatric dentrists before finding someone that would make her comfortable. We were concerned about how she would do with braces but her dentist recommended Dr. Frial so we knew we were in good hands. While she was terrified the first few appointments but Dr. Frial was patient and her fear quickly subsided. That was three years ago. She has now completed two phases of braces and we couldn’t be more pleased with the results. She had an overbite and terribly crowded teeth and now her smile is gorgeous. The staff is warm and the office is professional and organized.  We never waited more than a few minutes to be seen and had no problem scheduling appointments.   We would highly recommend Dr. Frial as your orthodontist.

Dr. Frial has been great with both of my boys. I chose him not only because he came highly recommended from several friends, but also because he was very honest and upfront during our first consult, not trying to upsale unneccessary work. Both of my boys have beautiful smiles now, thanks to Dr. Frial. He is very knowledgeable and friendly, and explains everything very well. His staff is also very friendly and helpful. I highly recommend Dr. Frial!

Dr. Frial and his staff are so wonderful. They were always able to accommodate for scheduling purposes.

I have two sons who have received orthodontia treatment from Dr.Frial. I am very pleased with the end results for my 16 year old. My 14 year old is currently in the middle of his treatment plan and with every visit I’m reminded how professional, efficient and caring this office is and especially Dr. Frial. This last September 2nd, Labor Day Holiday, my 14 year old knocked out his upper incisor doing something not so smart around our pool. Within 45 minutes of the accident we were at Dr. Balasanian’s office, an oral surgeon on holiday standby and he aligned the tooth for reinsertion. To my amazement, Dr. Frial also showed up immediately to assist and reattach the damaged braces. I had two dental specialists working on my boy, on a holiday within minutes of the accident! I am forever grateful and pleased with both doctors’ compassion, kindness and expertise. Because of their dedication to their profession, my son has the best chance that the tooth will remain viable but even if in time it dies, these men did the best job anyone could ever manage. Thank you.

Make an appointment today and experience it for yourself!

Because of his service to the community, Dr. Frial was invited to participate in the Niguel Days Parade, which celebrated the city of Laguna Niguel. “It is not about straightening teeth as much as it is about building self-confidence and changing lives. I knew I picked the right profession after seeing the transformation of a timid woman who never smiled into someone who is full of life. It was the most gratifying feeling in the world.”
