I have been coming here for years, since the previous owner, and I am very happy with Dr. Shepherd and his team. I recently had some old ugly mercury fillings replaced with natural tooth colored fillings and got started with Invisalign and I am so happy with my results! Dr. Shepard is kind and funny and makes you feel super comfortable, and I am already seeing results from Invisalign just two months after getting started. Thank you Dr. Shepard and Mirtha!

We have a new fantastic family dentist in Fountain Valley. Dr. Shepherd is very efficient, accomplished, and gives his patients complete dental work satisfaction. He recently completed a complex bridge procedure for my wife and we are both very satisfied. He performed the entire procedure without any discomfort. I am very happy with his work and will continue to see him for all of my future dental needs. He is very personable and explains everything in detail. Great dentist!

I have been going to this Dentist Office since I was a little girl. Recently the practice was taken over by Dr. Shepherd and I have been so happy with my experience. The staff is very friendly and professional. I love Mirtha! She has been my hygienist since I can remember. I honestly look forward to my dentist appts! We have recommended all of our family and friends of all ages to make this their family dentist office. All have been very happy with their experiences. 🙂

I am always welcomed by a warm and genuine staff, from the office personnel, to the assistance, to Martha the hygienist and Dr. Shepherd himself. I trust their expertise am always pleased when leaving. Most recently, I needed a filling while having a routine cleaning. After Dr. Shepherd’s examination per request of the hygienist, I asked if the filling would be possible to do during that appointment time. He obliged. In doing so, we did not discuss cost. Within the hour of leaving the office, I received a call that the additional charge for the filling would be refunded as we did not discuss any charges. That is 100% top notch service!!!

Dr. Shepherd is an amazing dentist! After visiting his office for my consultation, he made everything clear and answered all the questions I had. He is a very approachable and outgoing dentist. I would highly recommend visiting Dr. Shepherd because he’s simply an awesome person and dentist!

Great dentist office.  The assistants are kind and are always able to work around you, especially with financial issues.  The dentist is not only good at what he does, but goes out of his way for his clients to make sure they are doing ok.  I would recommend this place to everyone.

The dental experience I receive is always second to none. I always feel welcomed when I come in for my appointments. What makes the visits even more pleasant is that Dr. Shepard, Mirtha, and Jessie always take the time to explain in detail the treatment and ensure my understanding of the process before proceeding. Thanks for your honesty and service!

I’m so glad I found Dr. Shepherd. His office is clean, pleasant, and comfortable. I’ve never had the experience of looking forward to going to the dentist… UNTIL NOW! With pleasure I recommend Dr. Shepherd to all my friends, family, and coworkers!

My wife and I our patients of Dr. Shepherd and think highly of him and his staff. We always feel at ease at the office, and the service is second to none. Everyone in the office is very knowledgeable and courteous.

I’m a periodontal patient, so I’ve gone to many dentist offices in my time. I like this dentist more than the others I’ve gone to previously. I’ve known the dental hygienists there for years, and they do wonderful work, as it’s needed with my gum problem. The dentist noticed I was grinding my teeth so they got me a night guard for bruxism. Jessie is an awesome office manager, and gets me the best appointment times available. She is also great at communicating with my insurance company for me. I bring my son here too. No one looks forward to a dental visit, but all of my visits here were painless. Thank you.

Robin M. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am not a good dental patient but Dr. Shepherd’s office has been fantastic. I needed 2 crowns and a filling and I was so comfortable and never felt any pain. Usually, my anxiety is sky high.  Nothing but rave reviews.  Also, they were up front with the costs and friendly when setting up appointments. Nothing but 5 STARS from me!

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


I am so glad I was referred to this office by my friend.  Dr. Shepherd and his staff are friendly and knowledgeable.  I felt comfortable and well informed during his examination. I have very sensitive gums; the cleaning was surprisingly pain free.  Jessi was helpful explaining my dental benefits.

Best dentist ever!!! Dr. Shepherd and his staff are all top notch! They are welcoming and always make you feel comfortable, and he has the best bedside manners I’ve ever experienced from a dentist. Another great thing that I value is that they are always on time and don’t make you wait, yet they never make you feel rushed, they always take their time to explain everything and give you options. I know I’m in great hands here, I have had my fair share of bad experiences in the past with other dentists, and drive all the way from West Los Angeles to his office in Fountain Valley, but it’s definitely worth the drive, and I would highly recommend them to anyone.

Awesome knowledge of his practice. I was going to his father in laws practice and when I heard he was retiring, I was a little nervous at first, but I believe you should give others a chance. Dr. Shepherd knows what he is doing and knows what needs to be done. I have terrible teeth and he has helped me tremendously and has advised me if I am having pain, he knows if it’s teeth related or something else.

I was previously a patient of the former dentist, Dr. Bjarne Kavarnstrom.  When I heard Dr. K was selling his practice, I thought I would give the new dentist, Dr. John B Shepherd, a try.  I noticed that Dr. Shepherd was very similar to Dr. K.  Dr Shepherd’s staff was very pleasant and professional.  Dr. Shepherd was on time and made sure his patients didn’t sit in the waiting room reading magazines.  He was very “patient focused” and explained what he was doing, making me feel very comfortable.  I look forward to my continued relationship with Dr. Shepherd and his staff.

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


The staff is always warm and welcoming, and I trust their expertise. Recently I went in for a cleaning, and per the request of the hygienist Martha, Dr. Shepherd agreed that I needed a filling. I quickly asked if that could be done during this visit, and in the hast of agreeing, we did not discuss additional charges. Within an hour of leaving the office, I received a phone call that they will reverse the charge of the filling as we did not discuss it. I would say that deserves 5 STARS!!

I’m a periodontal patient, so I’ve gone to many dentist offices in my time. I like this dentist more than the others I’ve gone to previously. I’m not overcharged, and like the way I’m treated. I bring my son here too. No one looks forward to a dental visit, but all of my visits here were painless. Thank you.

Dr.Sheperd is a wonderful dentist. He uses all the new gadgets to make going to the dentist much easier than it used to be back in the day. I live in Laguna Woods and travel to Fountain Valley because I trust him that much. I don’t know about you….but it is very hard to trust these days and I guarantee you will feel the same.


As a fountain valley dental team we offer excellent quality, excellent customer service and never a double booked appointment. We pride our office with on time appointments, gentle treatment and empathy for the entire family. Don't like needles or shots? We utilize a Diode Laser that can do many cavity fillings without the need for the needle or novacaine. We are a small "mom and pop" dental office. No corporate Wall Street dentist here. Come in today and see how we are different, we are a classic dental office with modern technology. Dr. Shepherd’s professional life started off in construction in Orange County and Big Bear, where he built custom homes. While he loved being a carpenter he felt that he could provide his talents to a broad range of the community through healthcare. That is when he decided to return to school and pursue a career in dentistry. Dr. Shepherd knew that dentistry would be a natural fit for him – lets face it dentistry is construction on a micro scale. After receiving his dental degree at NSU’s College of Dental Medicine, Dr. Shepherd worked as an associate dentist in Las Vegas, Honolulu and the small Hawaiian island of Lana’i. During this time he had the opportunity to treat a diverse population and perform all facets of dentistry. Most recently, Dr. Shepherd’s career has taken him back to Orange County once again, when he purchased the dental practice of his father-in-law and mentor, Dr. Bjarne Kvarnstrom in 2018. He is committed to providing the highest quality of dental care to his patients by combining a gentle touch with clinical excellence. As a proud member of the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and Orange County Dental Society, Dr. Shepherd regularly participates in continuing education to make sure he stays up-to-date on the latest dental advancements. Dr. Shepherd now lives in Long Beach with his wife and son. When not at the office, he enjoys travelling with his family. Closer to home, he can be found at the beach, surfing, golfing and enjoying all that Southern California has to offer.
