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

Debbie P. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dental service! i started going to image dental a couple years ago and have been very pleased. i had ( a different dentist) before and (was not happy). This place is nicely decorated; it has comfortable chairs and big flat screen tv in each room. I usually hate going to the dentist but this place makes it bearable. Dr. NGO is very friendly and knowledgeable. The staff also friendly and caring. I never had to wait for more than 10 minutes before they take me in. My appointments were always on time. The Dental service was least painful than any other places I have been to. I have had cleaning, fillings, retainer adjustment, and teeth whitening done at image dental and the results were good. I never had any problems afterward. I would highly recommend image dental!!

I have been going to Dr. Ngo a coupon years now. He is the best dentist I have ever had. He is so kind and professional and really cares for his patients. I usually hate going to the dentist but Dr. Ngo makes the experience so easy and painless! He always spends the time to explain procedures in detail and makes sure that you’re comfortable throughout. The staff are friendly and helpful and the office is modern and clean.
You won’t find a better dentist, team, and office! Highly recommend!!!

I’ve been seeing Dr Ngo for over 9 yrs, he really is the most caring and honest dentist!  He’s well experienced in dental implants and all aspects of general dentistry. My front implant is still solid as a rock since he first placed it 9 years ago!

Chad S. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ngo was great.  His prices are reasonable and the technology and time spent with me were beyond impressive.  The vibe and staff were great.  He also sees kids which was great to learn as I’m moving my whole family to his office.

Dr. Ngo and his staff were excellent. Just switched here and was blown away by the technology and how clean it was. Dr. Ngo was very detailed and I really felt like he took his time to really give a thorough exam and guidance. Moving my whole family over to here and he is open on Saturdays!

Brian T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ngo and his staffs are professional, courteous and caring.  I always get a reminder call or via text before my office visit, which I feel is a great customer service that other dental office does not offer.   The office is clean and the ambient is very soothing and warmth.  My 12 years old doesn’t mind going to see Dr. Ngo because she feels @ ease and relaxed when he cleaned her teeth.  I have also recommended my sister-in law and they really like Image Dental professionalism and care to details.

My wife Sharon lost a crown on Saturday afternoon. Apprehensive that she might not be able to find a dentist in Newport Beach, she found Image Dental and Dr. Steve Ngo on the first try.
The receptionist was wonderful and even took care of Sharon’s service dog, Abby, while Dr. Ngo and his assistant glued in the crown. He was very professional but yet very warm and reassuring. It was a very positive experience at a very reasonable price.
Not all dentists are alike.
Dr. Ngo happens to be one of the best!

I grew up always having dozens of cavities. We went to many dentists and each time I went to get holes drilled in my teeth my fear of dentists grew. Some were nice but weren’t particularly skilled, some weren’t nice and weren’t skilled, but Dr. Ngo somehow manages to be genuine in every single short interaction, all while being an extremely skilled and truthful dentist. I now refuse to visit any other dentist, and my fears have lessened by a lot, mostly due to the compassion, comfort, and skill the staff here provide. Everyone here, including the dental assistants, are fantastic.

I’m a picky person, especially with such deep fears of dentists, if your insurance covers it I recommend coming here.

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


My husband and I both go to Dr. Ngo, he is an excellent dentist and really nice. I came to him to get a crown fixed from another dentist and was very happy with his work. The location is great, the technology is amazing and the staff are very friendly.

Sydney C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great office. Amazing treatment and care! Environment light and friendly. Dr. Ngo and staff really attends to the patient’s needs. Definitely recommend to all.

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


I went to Image Dental for two (dental implants) and both procedures went very smoothly.  Dr Ngo was very knowledgeable and explained to me in detail the procedure he was about to performed.   Dr Ngo’s professionalism and mannerism made me very comfortable and I would go back to use his service anytime.

I thought the office had really cool state of the art technology and was very impressed with the xray system which allowed me to see the xray on the computer screen a couple minutes after the xray was taken.

Scale of 1-10, I would rate Dr Ngo’s office a 10.

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


Dr. Ngo put my nerves at ease and explained my treatment in detail. Answered all my questions and helped me understand what I need and why it needed to be done. Thank you!

Daniel B. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


It was my first visit, and my teeth are smooth and clean.  The x-rays and cleaning took about 45 minutes to complete.  This place is very clean and the people are very nice and thorough.  They used a large flat screen to show a close up of my teeth which was really cool too.  No complaints here.

Terry S. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Ngo since he opened his Newport Beach office. It is a small, clean, modern office with friendly, attentive staff. Dr. Ngo is a wonderful dentist. I have had several procedures done by Dr. Ngo including a root canal and tooth implant, as well as regular cleanings.  He is very gentle and never tries to pressure you into have any dental work done. Dr. Ngo always explains different options. I have never had any discomfort during or after any work he has done. His dental assistants are pleasant and knowledgeable. Did I mention there are big screen monitors with your choice of Netflix?    
I have never had an issue with my dental insurance. Of course I always request that they check coverage with my insurance before any major procedure, which the assistants cheerfully comply.
I highly recommend Dr. Ngo if you are looking for a dentist in the Orange County area.

Tanya S. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I bring my whole family here and the whole office is great. Very professional and gentle. The kids love going to dentist! Hands down the best experience I have ever had. Easy to get in for appointments. Staff is awesome and office is super nice.

Luz H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ngo and staff were so great at helping me. I was worried my treatment was going to cost an arm and a leg but it was reasonable and mostly covered by my insurance. Dr. Ngo was very friendly and highly professional. I was very pleased with the dental work and looking forward to keeping this office as my new provider.

Tracy S. from Frisco, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Ngo for the past 2.5 years on the recommendation of my friend and he has been so great!  He is so kind, informative, and is easy to understand.  He uses the latest technology and all of my procedures have been painless (no needles!).  He just took off my braces and now I have the best smile 🙂  I take my daughter to see him and she also loves seeing “Dr. Steve”.  My dental insurance changed recently (…), so I have to pay a more to see him now, but I don’t even mind since I know that he is doing what is necessary to take care of me and my teeth for a lifetime.  The office is clean, the staff is friendly and efficient, and I can always get an appointment when I need it.  I have been to many other dentists, but none even compare to Dr. Ngo. I drive half an hour to see him, but it’s well worth it!!! I recommend him to all of my friends!

Jones C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is by far the nicest dental office I’ve ever visited – in decor and in service. Trisha at the front desk is as sweet & helpful as they come. She recently called back just to check up on me for a gum problem I had & make sure I was able to get the specialist appointment scheduled quickly.

Lauren (pretty sure of her name) sat me down just a few minutes after I arrived (I’ve never had more than a 10 minute wait here) and made sure I was comfortable (the huge HDTV on the wall in front of each dental chair doesn’t hurt for that matter).

Dr. Ngo then took over, asked about my kids (remembering I had 2 yr. old twins), and proceeded to get to work. Each time I visit, he has been very friendly and descriptive about what’s going on and what needs to be done. The office has state of the art technology, and Dr. Ngo has a way of making me feel completely at ease in an environment that I have historically been very apprehensive about visiting. Keep up the good work, folks – it is VERY MUCH appreciated!

Dr. Ngo is a great dentist in Newport Beach!! I’ve been going to him for all of my dental work for over 5 years now and he always takes care of me. He’s crafted a beautiful smile for me and for that I am very thankful. He’s very skilled and has access to some really high-tech equipment that will impress you. Has to be one of the best dentists in Orange County area.

Cindy W. from Santa Rosa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing Dr. Ngo & entire staff. My first time, won’t be my last, maybe the best cleaning  I have ever had! Gentle & thorough! A great office, highly recommend !

Hoa T. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Image Dental is wonderful. The staff are very friendly and helpful. The office is clean and spacious. Dr. Steve is very knowledgeable and takes time to explain everything. He uses modern technology to make the experience as painless as possible. There is hardly ever a wait time. I come at my appointment time and within 5 minutes I am inside. Once inside, I am attended to in a timely and professional manner.

Sean H. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Steve Ngo and his staff are some of the most caring and compassionate professionals that my family has ever had the pleasure to deal with. We’ve been going to him for dental care the past 12 years from the time he opened his practice in Las Vegas, Nevada and now in Newport Beach, California. Not only is the dental care totally top notch, but the whole experience is made so much easier by the wonderful staff and Dr. Steve Ngo himself. I highly recommend them for all your dental needs.

I’ve been going to Dr. Ngo for over a year now and I don’t plan on switching any time soon. This a great family dentist who knows how to deal with clients of all ages. I hated the dentist before I met Dr. Ngo but him and his staff make it an enjoyable experience!

Qui C. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been looking for a great dentist for almost 2 years now. My insurance network providers were all random pick of the draw, and they were awful horrible picks. But then I found Dr. Ngo! I had my fiance be the guinea pig and try him first and my fiance had nothing but good things to say.

Image Dental is very clean, new and modern. It has a calming waterfall at the entrance to ease people who may be nervous. The receptionist was sweet and wonderful to work with. The dental assistant was super nice and Dr. Ngo himself was very comforting and approachable. He did my cleaning start to finish entirely by himself, extremely thorough and gentle. I was never in any discomfort or pain.

Top of the line technologies. I was able to see my xrays and my mouth zoomed in on the big screen tv! There were bad news with my teeth, but I will definitely be back with Dr. Ngo, whom I trust will fix the problems.

Highly recommended.

I can’t tell you enough how great Dr Steve and his entirr staff is! Got me in for emergency tooth extraction, very caring, kind and professional. I highly recommend him!

Great location, great staff, and excellent Dentist. Dr. Ngo is gentle and personable with us and the kids. The kids actually don’t mind going to the dentist. It’s very clean and everyone is friendly!! The staff and Dr. Ngo is all amazing!

Rene A. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for a little over a year and I am always quite impressed with the professionalism of the staff.
Maria the hygienist was very friendly, always gives me advice to improve my teeth hygiene (she’s also very attractive haha)
The dental assistant Maria gives me courtesy calls every few months to remind me of my cleanings. Kind of nice not having to remember to schedule an appointment!
Overall I am left pleased with with their work and I will continue to have regular cleanings and dental work done by them!

Quynh N. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Beautiful office. My family and I love coming to visit Dr. Ngo. He and his staff are very professional, and the environment is friendly and warm. Definitely recommend.

Shelby R. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to image dental for two years, and dr. Steve is the best dentist I have ever been to!  When I chip a tooth, he gets me in on a same day appointment, and his staff is very friendly and helpful. I also have never been I recharged, and he has replaced my final metal fillings with composite “on the house” (…) I have nothing but good things to say about this office. Also, I was referred to this office by another dentist’s assistant who used to work here, so it was a very reputable source.

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


Dr. Ngo, Maria and the staff are the absolute best at what they do.   I have been coming here for close to 7 years and would never consider going anywhere else.    I get expert care with no pressure in a great environment.     My teeth are in tip top shape and I trust Dr. Ngo implicitly.

Patrick P. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I and my family have been patients with Dr Ngo for 8 years. He and his staff are very professional. They are friendly, kind and take excellent care of my teeth.
Definitely recommended .

Marie L. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Steve Ngo is a wonderful dentist.  He’s very straightforward in terms of his approach to the treatments.  He doesn’t recommend unnecessary procedures.  He takes the time to explain the treatment plan.  He’s very friendly and personable as well, and does not rush you.  And to top it all off, his dental assistants are all nice and efficient.  The ambiance is also very clean and zen. 

Natalie N. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I love everything about this dental office… Dr. Ngo is a great dentist, his staff is nice, and the office is new, clean and beautifully designed!  In addition you know that the doctor is up-to-date with the latest dental technology with all the high-tech equipment in the office! Not only is Dr. Ngo a talented, knowledgeable dentist, he is great with kids –  my little daughter actually doesn’t mind going to the dentist since Dr. Ngo is very gentle and patient, and the movies also help! In addition, my husband had some major cosmetic dental work done and Dr. Ngo did a fantastic job!  We’re very happy to recommend Image Dental!!!
