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

Dr. Peter is great! I have always been terrified of the dentist from going to this butcher In NYC. Dr. Peter was so good with my tooth extraction! I felt zero pain. I wasn’t nervous, I totally trusted him because of the way he conducts himself and that he explained every single step of the way and took his time. I’m hooked. I want to get all my teeth fixed now! And the best part is I’m not afraid it was actually a good experience and I never thought I’d say that about the dentist. He also gave me a very easy payment plan. Thanks so much, guys!

I’m usually weary when going to the dentist because I’m very particular about the materials they use due to autoimmune issues I have. I called Dr. Peter’s office and to my surprise, they had BPA- and Bis-GMA-free filling materials which was exactly what I was looking for. The procedure with Dr. Peter went really well and Mario and Denise were amazing. I’ve recently went back again for a cleaning with Emi and appreciated her gentle touch. She understood that I prefer a more holistic approach to my health so she educated me on different products I can use for my oral hygiene. Thanks, I’ll be returning!

Dr. Peter and his team are EXCELLENT! I am very impressed with his knowledge and willingness to educate me on how my hygiene habits are affecting my teeth positively and negatively. He also gave me great advice on things I can be doing at home and in my daily routine to improve my dental health! His diagnostic and treatment technology is unlike anything I have experienced before! Additionally, my procedures have all been done remarkably quickly and efficiently! Looking forward to recommending ALL of my patients and friends and family to Dr. Peter!

I had my prep today for porcelain veneers. Not only did I not feel anything at all, but I was comfortable and stress-free the whole time while I watched Netflix. My teeth look beautiful. Dr. Nguyen is amazing and the best dentist I have ever been to. I am so glad I listened to other reviews and came to his office. I would never say he was amazing if he wasn’t. Believe me, you won’t be disappointed.

Dr. Peter and his staff at Genuine Dental Arts are the best. Always friendly, professional and courteous, Dr. Peter is calm, kind and willing to take the necessary time to explain any findings and necessary procedures, discuss or recommend preventative measures, and answer any and all questions. I highly recommend Genuine Dental Arts.

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


Best dental experience I have ever had and I’m an ex-dental hygienist! I’m very selective when it comes to dentist and hygienist and I can seriously say Dr. Peter is a one of a kind dental professional … which hard to find! I’m so grateful I did!! Dr Peter is conservative, gentle, honest and caring !! Everything I look for in a dental/medical Dr. Thank you Dr Peter and staff who are equally wonderful!! His Hygienist is awesome and possibly better than I was!!

Brian N. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in today for a cavity fillings and was in and out with 30 minutes. I’m impressed by the efficiency from start to finish of my visit. I am always warmly welcomed by Mario and never waiting too long to be seen by Dr. Nguyen. The dental work itself if great, trust me, I’ve been to many other dentists and the quality is not up to par of this office. I would highly recommend friends, family and strangers to get the dental work done here, you will be completely satisfied.

My family have been going to see Dr Peter for the past couple of years and could not be happier with his service. Dr Peter is very patient and thorough with his work. His office is very well maintained and staff is exceptional, big kudos to Mario and Stacy. Highly recommended !

(…) The office was very neat and cozy and I was greeted with such great energy. Dr. Nguyen was very friendly and informative which put me on ease right before the exam. Emi did such a great job of cleaning my teeth. She made sure I was comfortable during the process. The exam and X-Ray were quick and painless and Dr. Nguyen advised me of what I needed to keep my teeth in tip-top shape. Overall, great experience. I would definitely come back!

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


As someone who has always had an extreme phobia of the dentist, Dr. Peter set my mind at ease. He performed my first cleaning in roughly 5 years and did so with patience and grace. He is the real deal! On account of not seeing the dentist in 5 years, as expected, I have a LOT of cavities but Dr. Peter made sure I understood the process and settled my anxiety for my upcoming appointment. I feel incredibly fortunate to have come across such an amazing dentist after all the crap and trauma I’ve dealt with through the years. Yay!

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


Dr. Nguyen and his staff are awesome, we feel totally at home, my family and I have been coming over here for a few years. Dr Nguyen is very knowledgeable, personable and I highly recommend his services.

Dr. Peter and his staff are amazing! Dr. Peter is very good at what he does and his staff is very friendly and comforting. Dr. Peter gave me a smile I can finally be confident about! I couldn’t be happier with my new smile!! I highly recommend visiting Genuine Dental Arts!

Karlee I. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Peter is the best dentist I’ve seen and I will always be a client of his. I’ve had routine cleanings and dental work done by his office and I’ve always received top-notch service and professionalism. He makes you feel so comfortable there (even for me and I usually hate the dentist). Dr. Peter and Maggie answered all my annoying questions and kept reassuring me that it will be okay despite my dental anxiety. When I went in for two cavities, I was actually relaxing and ready to fall asleep by the end of the procedure. He always lets you know what he’s doing when he’s doing it. Definitely does not make me feel like he is just out for making money like a bunch of other dentists I’ve seen. Genuine Dental Arts is the best and I recommend Dr. Peter and his staff to everyone!

Jahan R. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a broken tooth and needed to get it fixed as it was causing pain! And I wasn’t too happy with my previous dentist so I did my research and decided to see Dr. Peter. They were able to work with my schedule and got me a timely appointment. The visit was seemingly painless and he repaired my tooth quickly. The office is very modern, the staff is skilled and friendly and Dr. Peter does great work. Highly recommend it!

So glad I found Dr Peter and his team. Always professional. Always kind. Amazing with my scared little girls. I send everyone here!

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


I have to start by admitting that it had been a while since I had been to the dentist, so when I came here for the first time, they had their work cut out for them.  I was very pleased with their location, the building they are in, and the overall appearance of the office.  It was very clean, contemporary and well organized.  The girls were very friendly and Dr Peter was very nice.  I had the works done, full x-rays, a full exam and we set up a treatment plan that would cover the next few weeks.  Over a series of visits, I had all my cavities filled, all 4 quadrants deep cleaned and I even had a wisdom tooth pulled.  I must say, they have all the cool tools here.  They have this little vibrating thing that makes it so you don’t even feel the needle going in.  They even have the machines here to make crowns and things like that in the house.  That’s new for me, I am used to having to wait a couple of weeks for things to be made.  They also have a whole setup so you can watch movies with wireless headphones while they work.  It’s great!    They did great work for me.  Very careful, very clean, and virtually painless.  I didn’t even need painkillers after the wisdom tooth!

Dr. Nguyen is very knowledgeable in the latest practice and technology needed for a painless dental treatment with great results. His staff is likewise very well trained in the dental field and in helping out with your particular issue. I’m very pleased with the level of attention I received from Dr. Nguyen as well as with the dental care.

Gabriel R. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Google)


Awesome environment. Dr Peter and his staff are amazingly welcoming and the office is very chic. They always played walking dead for me or pandora while they worked on my teeth. I will definitely be back and recommend them to all who ask me about where to go get dental work done.

Beth I. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Nguyen is the best dentist. HE takes his time to explain everything in a way that makes me feel calm. He has a delicate way of handling my teeth so I always feel safe in his care. He has made my teeth look so beautiful and he really loves what he does. It is the only doctor I look forward to visiting with. His staff is so wonderful and so professional as well. I highly recommend Dr. Nguyen as a dentist. I recently moved an hour away and am still going back for my treatments.

Stephanie F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Peter is great! He fixed my teeth! He has a great cosmetic eye and is very kind and goes out of his way to make patients happy. Always feel comfortable and love the staff here, Mario is great as well. They are all easy going and flexible. I recommended him to my fiancé and friends. They also have high tech stuff I haven’t seen in other dental offices, it’s modern and they have a TV you can watch over your face and pick what u want to watch- pretty cool!

Dr. Nguyen and Maggie were incredibly patient with me and we’re more concerned with getting me out of pain than in payment. I was in severe pain and they talked me through it every step of the way. Maggie held my hands, continued to coax me through my panic attack for 1 1/2 hours. Neither of them was going to let me leave without helping me. If you have issues with dentists you need to come and see them. The topical they use to numb your mouth works very well. I’m not sure how many injections he had to make but I never felt even a pinch!! He pulled 8 teeth and I never felt any pain at all. I hope that you will go and see them if you need any dental work done before you lose all your teeth like I did. I have sent friends to them and they all agree that this is the best dentist they have been to. Thank you for everything Dr. Nguyen and Maggie!!!

The Dr and Staff are Amazing. Great restorative work and smooth cleaning. Happy to be coming by here regularly

Dr. Peter Nguyen, Mario and now Emi always do a fantastic job. I have been coming here for four years for quarterly tooth cleaning and other dental services as needed, including repair of an implant and chipped tooth. This is the best dental service I’ve ever experienced.

Brian N. (Source: Zocdoc)


First of all, I have not been to the dentist in a couple of years. Yes, it is terrible but fortunately there were no major problems. So I was a little hesitant about the visit. When I first arrived in the office I felt very comfortable and my nerves subsided which is a good impression. I was well-received by the reception and was seen by the doctor within 5 minutes of my check-in. I came in for x-rays and clean-up. My overall impression of Dr. Nguyen was good, I could tell that he has practiced his craft well and my visit quite pleasant. I’m usually a little uptight when going to the dentist but my visit wasn’t so bad. I would recommend anyone to this office and to this doctor. He did a great job and my smile is brighter than ever 🙂

Yena K. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely amazing experience – I have always hated the dentist before coming here but Dr. Peter and his staff were so friendly, so efficient – they have incredible equipment that literally makes the process painless. He also took the time to explain every step and answer every single question I had… Recommending Genuine Dental to all my friends and coworkers!

Don W. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy I found this place. I avoided the dentist for 10 years due to my awful experiences at the dentist. First, let me just say they don’t make you feel guilty. Instead, you are put at ease immediately and feel welcomed and taken care of. II has a root canal that needed to be done so clearly not thrilled about it I have no one to blame but myself. They put me at ease immediately and made me feel it’ll be ok. After getting my root canal I must say it was actually the best experience I have ever had at the dentist ever. I plan to return to get some cavities filled but I must say  I finally found a dentist that will always have my business.

Matthew V. from Laguna Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing dental work by Dr. Huong Nguyen! Came out of the dentist with a bright smile. Great attitude and positivity the whole time during my appointment. Would highly recommend coming here for a check-up and dental work.

Dr. Nguyen has state of the art equipment and is very straightforward with treatment options. He has several options for financing if you aren’t insured or need a lot of work. The staff is friendly and they did a great job cleaning my teeth.

Dr. Peter is thorough, knowledgeable, friendly, and very gentle in his treatments. Highly recommend with a 10*+!

Beth G. from Ramona, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) Much to my surprise I found a dentist who not only helped my dental issues, but changed my perception of dentistry forever.  Dr. Peter Nguyen is an amazing, talented dentist.   Not only was he sensitive to my feelings from past dental trauma,  he also impressed me with his skill, artistry, and extreme patience.  He is always completely focused while maintaining such a calm demeanor when having to deal with a somewhat challenging set of teeth.  Furthermore, he inspired in me an appreciation for my dental health and well being, which I never even thought of as a possibility (…).

Alexis M. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) Dr. Peter is so gentle that you can’t even feel him numbing you. I was told I needed surgery to pull out my wisdom teeth and was in pain and Dr. Peter took them out painless in 5 minutes without having to put me under. He also makes in house crowns which are done immediately. Amazing work overall.

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


Dr. Peter is the best!  Very nice location, and the service is top-notch.  His entire staff is very knowledgeable and happy to answer any and all questions. I also loved seeing all the latest technologies they use to speed things up and give better results than I’ve ever had before.  Netflix on TV with headsets to listen while they work is also a nice touch 🙂 Strongly recommend Dr. Peter!

Laura O. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I only started to see Dr Peter since the end of 2016!!  I am happy to say that I go in nervous, but leave relieved. His technique is amazing. I always seem to have gums bleeding and it’s genetic from my family. I had a bad experience from my other dentists that makes me scared to go to the dentist. Dr Peter is very assuring and told me to go more frequently and I will be fine. I like his procedures that I have limited pain and he warns me if I should feel something.  I like the staff here. I would recommend him to anyone who is in need of a good dentist.

Tiffany T. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) Dr. Peter is super friendly and honest, does his best to give his patients a great experience. I loved being able to watch Netflix during my cleaning/filling. I’m really happy with my experience there and can’t wait to start my Invisalign treatment with them.

Katie O. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) I recently came in to get a refill on an oral topical medication to help with my canker sores. I get awful canker sores and I was in so much pain. Mario and Dr. Nguyen explained to me a new and quick procedure to help get rid of canker sores, in which they use a laser that can kill the virus as well as the pain. I had him talk to my mom since I was unfamiliar with this procedure and he explained it to her and answered all of her questions. She was on board with it, and I was desperate, so I gave it a try. I’m so glad that I did the laser treatment. I get pretty horrendous canker sores and I had two huge ones in the far back of my mouth. The pain was unbearable, but soon it was gone in five minutes! I couldn’t believe it. Incredible! I didn’t even feel a thing during the procedure, I was so shocked. I will definitely be coming back for the canker sore laser treatment. He also gave it to me at a discounted price (…), which was really nice of him (…).


Dr. Peter was born and raised in Southern California. In 2002, he graduated cum laude with a B.S. in Biological Sciences from the University of Californi of Irvine. Before committing himself to dental school, he took a year off to pursue his other passion for the fine arts. In that year he learned about all different types of art like sculpting, painting, ceramics and drawing techniques. “As a patient, I know what its like to be in a dental chair. I hated it. That’s why I do everything for my patients I wish was done for me” In 2007, he graduated with a D.D.S degree from the University of Southern California. After graduation, he was immediately commissioned as an officer for the US Army in Fort Drum, New York. While serving in the Army, he got a chance to blossom under the mentorship of many Army dental specialists. As a result, he was able to cultivate his art of dentistry. His passion for modern dentistry combined with his talent in the fine arts is what allows him to deliver beautiful lasting smiles. He usually uses his free time to catch up on pending patient cases such as implants, veneers, and crowns but also enjoys spending his weekends with his beautiful wife and children.
