Dan F. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist in Orange County:  I’ve been to many dentists in the OC.  I also come from a family of dentistry (daughter dental asst, ex-wife has a dental school). Dr. Rodd is just a great dentist.  First of all, and honestly, he is old school, low tech. This is the GOOD NEWS. The office isn’t the latest state of the art;  he doesn’t pass along high prices to pay for a hi-tech office with lots of expensive crap. He has an amazing touch, awareness, and NO PAIN. He does most of the work himself with no assistant, and is constantly making sure you’re comfortable.  He’s also very reasonably priced. Cleanings, crowns, fillings…  I’ve had all with him.  He doesn’t talk you into anything you don’t need. His patients are loyal, like many years and drive miles to see him.  I’m going to him for the rest of my life no matter where I live.

Dr. Rodd is a fabulous dentist and does wonderful work! He is patient, kind, punctual, an active listener, and genuinely cares about his patients. I would highly recommend Dr. Rodd to anyone looking for a true professional who is an expert within the field.

Mike G. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


You can not find a more caring hands-on dentist than Dr. Rodd. He and his team go to great lengths to make me feel welcome, comfortable and safe. I have had eight veneers added over 10 years ago with no problems and i have never regretted it. He is available by cell phone after hours for any questions or emergencies and is willing to work with my busy schedule. There are no other dentists in his office and I know he will go far beyond the expected to enhance and protect my smile. He remains at the top of his profession with knowledge of cosmetic and restorative dentistry and his office is unsurpassed with state-of-the-art technology. He also still gives back by teaching at UCLA and is everything you would need in a cosmetic dentist.

Chet R. from Lake Arrowhead, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Rodd for over 8 years for all my dental needs. Dr. Rodd is the most professional dentist I have ever experienced. He has performed at the highest level of integrity in all our dealings. He has reworked a number of my teeth under his 5-year warranty without question. Additionally since I travel quite often Dr. Rodd has always been available to help when I needed information or help in an emergency.  The best!!!

Kissandra J. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Honest, Caring and Exceptional Work! Dr. Rodd, is a dental Rock Star!
I have crazy anxiety when it comes to dental visits, as many of us do.  In the past, I jumped from one dentist to another.  Searching for a better experience. I didn’t know it was possible to leave a dentist chair and Feel Amazing! But now I do! The office is so relaxing, the kindest staff and all the work is done by Dr. Rodd.  He takes his time, talks with you privately and really helps you understand your dental needs. I still have some anxiety before my appointments (because of years of fear) but his calm mannerism and tranquil environment remind me, I’m in good hands. He provides creative ways to make sure each patient is truly comfortable.  Not many of us get to leave the dentist chair with an ear-to-ear grin and the insatiable need to shout from the rooftops…I love my dentist!!  I do! That’s how awesome I feel after every visit. Thank you Dr. Rodd, you’re my dental Rock Star!

My husband first started going to Dr. Rodd a number of years ago.  I have always been uncomfortable in the dentist’s chair and hadn’t been to a dentist for a few years when my husband suggested I try Dr. Rodd.  So glad I took his advice!  Dr. Rodd is very calm, caring, and extremely polite.  He isn’t happy unless you’re happy.  It’s nice that he does the cleanings himself personally—you know that he really knows your teeth and mouth. You get the benefit of his great knowledge as he carefully explains each procedure exactly.   Our adult children go to Dr. Rodd, too.  We are all very pleased with his caring staff as well.  There’s no need to go to any other dentist—-Dr. Rodd is the best!

David M. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd is a great professional. He is knowledgeable and attentive to client’s needs. Equipment used is state of the art. Staff is friendly and helpful. Most important to me, the work done is always top quality.

Nilu K. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went from despising going to the dentist (my mom just told me a story about how I bit a dentist when I was little )  to loving my dentist. I’ve been going to dr. Rodd since the late 90s and I don’t see myself ever switching. He’s super nice and patient. I’ve had multiple fillings and none of them hurt. Yes, the sound still gives me goosebumps, but no pain! Plus he really only performs a procedure if necessary. I’ve been grinding my teeth and got worried. I went in and asked if I need a mouthguard. He checks every time and says that my grinding isn’t severe enough but he keeps his eyes on it every time I visit. Bedside manner and customer service is what sets him apart from anyone else. Did I mention that I’m willing to drive at least 30 mins to see him? Totally worth the trip! I recommend him to everyone. Plus his office staff is super friendly!

Amy S. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rodd has been my dentist since 1985. He is very gentle and extremely caring. He goes above and beyond to make you feel comfortable. He has excellent bedside manners. He is a true artist and a fantastic cosmetic dentist. His staff are very professional and take care of you right away. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. He makes temporaries for your teeth that are really beautiful while you are waiting for the actual crown or veneers to get ready. Once you are his patient you can never go to another dentist!

Coby B. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) As a person with needle phobia, I can be a nervous patient. Dr. Rodd is understanding, gentle and has a special technique for helping distract me from injections. There is even a TV with soothing music and imagery in view of the patient’s chair. My husband has a habit of tolerating pain, he’s a rugby player, and Dr. Rodd takes the time to make sure my husband is actually comfortable and not just taking the pain “like a man.” Dr. Rodd noticed that my niece’s front 3 teeth were rotting from the gum line and fixed them after a MediCal ‘pro’ in Vista improperly capped them, and for that we will be forever thankful to Dr. Rodd.
The level of clean in the office is superior. And the waiting room decor and views are gorgeous. Although there is hardly ever a wait, there are up to date, clean magazines to keep you entertained. The staff are on the ball and always willing to go the extra mile to make sure we are taken care of. They send out reminders which is a bonus in my books. They also hand out a dental care package after every visit. To the next 13 years! We look forward to it!

Audrey R. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Rodd for many years, and will continue for life.  I actually look forward to my office visits as Dr Rodd has the best sense of humor and we have many stimulating conversations beyond dental needs.  
Dr. Rodd and his staff besides being professional, are very warm, sincere and caring.  Always on time, top-notch equipment and lives up to the “gentle dentistry” claim.

Erica G. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd & his staff are simply the best. The staff are so friendly & helpful: Dr. Rodd truly cares about his patients & will go above & beyond to make sure you are comfortable. I’m a total nervous nelly when it comes to dental work & every visit, he is understanding and kind. I would recommend Dr. Ian Rodd & his staff to anyone!!

Saba K. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a fantastic dentist!
I’ve been with Dr. Rodd for many years now and he never stops to amaze me during my visits. Not only is he meticulous and professional in his work, but he also provides a very comfortable and relaxing atmosphere and makes you feel safe (as safe as one can feel in a dentist’s chair). Aside from my regular cleanings and check-ups, I’ve also had fillings and veneers redone that other places have managed to screw up.
The office staff complements the Dr. and his office very well.

Grant E. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family has been to numerous dentists over the years but none as professional, polite and as comfortable as Dr. Rodd.  He has an old school approach, hands-on, explains everything thoroughly and does not try to upsell patients on un-needed things.  Also and most importantly,  NO PAIN with Dr. Rodd.  He’s affordable and comfortable and that’s all we needed!!

Melissa H. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


There’s an old saying “We get old too soon and smart too late,” and as a senior citizen, it applies to me.  I was wrong to believe that flossing only before bedtime and brushing twice a day would ensure good dental health.  It took an in-depth evaluation and a deep scaling procedure by Dr. Rodd to make me realize that my lackadaisical approach to dental hygiene was bringing me closer to major periodontal disease.  A simple thing like flossing and brushing after every meal and keeping up with regular dental cleanings can really make a difference in one’s overall health.  Kudos to Dr. Rodd and his conscientious staff!

It had been a very long time since I had gone to the dentist. I have to admit, I’m one of those people who are afraid to go to the dentist. The consequences of course presented themselves as a terrible toothache. I found Dr. Rodd online and I made an appointment.
He was so kind and gentle. He took great care of me and I just fell in love with the place. I’m no longer uncomfortable about going in for a dental checkup. I couldn’t be more thankful, my teeth look and feel great. The office is comfortable and the staff is very friendly.
I completely recommend this dentist to anyone. Please come check for yourself, you will not regret it. Amazing level of quality and service. Everyone here is very professional.

K. O. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rodd is a fantastic Dentist in Dana Point. He is the only medical office I have ever been to that starts the appointments ON TIME!!! Every time I go into the office for my appointments the office staff greets me warmly and is ready for me! I look forward to going to Dr Rodd because it’s never a waste of time! 🙂

Brenda B. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd is the most talented and caring Dentist you will ever experience. I have needle phobia and other dental fears but Dr Rodd has helped me become a person who enjoys my regular dental checkups and even less fearful of real dental work! His ability and skill are both artistic and lasting. I would fly in to see him if I were to move away. No joke! Funny, kind and handsome, Dr Rodd is a wonderful human being. The staff are equally great and I give this doctor and office FIVE STARS!!

Linda N. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rodd is the best! I have very sensitive teeth which caused a real fear of visiting a dentist. With his patience and gentle manner I am doing much better. I can now get regular cleanings and maintaining my teeth is no longer the nightmare it used to be. Can’t recommend him enough!

Sheila D. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rodd is a great practitioner. His chairside manners are great, he is very accommodating and will never try to upsell anything. He does all the work himself and is a very personable guy. He even sent me a card when I had my baby! What a find!

Patti C. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd is well trained (UCLA Dental school), seasoned and practical.  He listens to your concerns but is not shy about expressing any misconceptions as it relates to any treatment plan. I love that he does his own cleaning.  His demeanor is very pleasant.  He has corrected and improved many years of improper dentistry by others.  Going to the dentist is not my favorite thing to do but Dr. Rodd makes the experience so much better!  His staff is very complimentary to his own style.  It is with pleasure that I highly recommend him

Margaret D. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Rodd for over 10 years.  He is a superb dentist and very nice, professional and personable.  He’s very gentle and aware of the patient’s comfort always.  He always shows me what needs to be done and gives several payment options.  If needed he will refer me to the best professionals in the field.  
I would highly recommend Dr. Rodd for all dentistry, including cosmetic.

Judy B. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would recommend Dr Rodd to everyone. He is professional in every way.  He knows how to help his patients with intelligent dentistry and caring.  he makes you feel comfortable and secure in that he knows what he is doing.  There is no pain involved.
His staff is made up of professionals, all willing to be of assistance.

Patricia H. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd has kept my teeth, gums and mouth healthy for many years. Any dental problems are taken care of. I can ask questions and he will always take the time to explain in a way that I understand.

Erika K. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd is an excellent dentist and a genuinely kind person whose friendly, warm manners put you at ease. He explains everything that he is doing and answers your questions clearly but without talking down to you. His staff is equally professional, helpful and friendly. I was very happy with my visit and I would definitely recommend him.

Dr. Rodd is the most professional, down to earth, meticulous and capable dentist ever!  His friendly staff is on top of what’s happening and the whole atmosphere makes going to the dentist a breeze!!! (…)

Arthur T. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Rodd since 1999.  He has always treated me in a respectful and competent manner.  His staff remembers me by name and I am left with the feeling that I am more than a file folder.  Dr. Rodd has been openly collaborative when choosing potential treatment options.  I am very pleased with the quality of the dentistry I have received for the past 15 years.

Amy S. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


The BEST DENTIST in the area with excellent and very professional work ethics, genuine care for his patients and very reasonable fees. He is a true artist. I’ve been his patient for the past 12 years. Everyone always compliments me about my smile and it’s all thanks to him. He is patient, kind and very gentle and asks me a million times how I am doing while he is fixing my teeth. He is the kind of dentist that remembers your name and who you are as a person not just a patient. The office is modern and has a beautiful view. The staff is also very friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr. Rodd.

Dale N. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Rodd and his staff are awesome! I’ve been a patient of Dr Rodd’s for over 10 years and have always been treated kindly and respectfully by all who work in the office.  The staff goes out of their way to make sure you feel welcomed and comfortable while visiting. Mary, the office manager, also goes beyond the call of duty making sure all insurance paperwork is properly submitted. Dr Rodd himself, is a kind, kind individual who always makes sure I am pain-free during visits. I actually “enjoy” my trips to the dentist. Thank you Dr Rodd and staff for taking such great care of me and my dental health!

Clivette K. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodd is the most amazing dentist. He has a caring and friendly staff. His office is immaculate with a serene feeling. Dr. Rodd is professional and knows how to make his patients feel comfortable. Scared to get a shot at the dentist? Don’t be. He is the only dentist who can give a shot and you can’t feel it at all!!! We even take our teenage daughter to see him now instead of a pediatric dentist and she just adores him. Would recommend Dr. Rodd 100%.

James H. from Palm Springs, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a long-time patient of Dr Rodd. I drive over 100 miles to be cared for by him.
His skillset and chairside manner are beyond compare with any other dentist (or doctor for that matter) I have used. I really appreciate it that Dr. Rodd does the routine cleanings himself, without a hygenist. This way, he gets a detailed look at the condition of my mouth. Dr. Rodd offers a great warrantee on his work, but I have never had to worry because he is SO competent and talented (…).

I have had some very unpleasant experiences with dentists, the most recent being the worst….a friend recommended Dr. Rodd and told me that he was in Dana Point which is pretty far for me to drive but she said he was worth the trip…..BEST DENTIST I HAVE EVER SEEN. I will make the drive for my cleanings and fillings. He is honest and gentle with a great bedside manner, which I require in a Dr. and haven’t been able to find. I am extremely picky and I highly recommend him….his staff is also excellent and made me very comfortable…..I got lost on my way there and the receptionist was so friendly and patient.

Roxie B. from Albuquerque, NM (Source: Yelp)


Very professional and conscientious dentist.  Extremely aware of the patient’s concerns.  My dental work looks great and came with a 5 year warranty against breakage and discoloration.  That was very impressive.  The staff is also professional and proficient in what they do.  The ambiance of the treatment rooms is peaceful and almost Zen-like.  A friend of mine recommended Dr. Rodd to me and I would recommend him to all my friends as well.  The professionalism of Dr. Rodd makes it well worth the 45-minute drive from my office in Orange.
