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

I have had exceptional experiences with Dr. Hinds and his staff for over a dozen years.  I have had my teeth cleaned regularly (I used to hate this because my gums were sore for several days, but not so with the hygienists here, who are just the best!), cavities filled, crowns installed and some cosmetic work done.  Dr. Hinds is quite thorough and the  results of his work exceptional.  HIs temporary crowns fit so well that you would think they are the permanent ones. He is surrounded by a wonderful and knowledgeable staff who help make for a most pleasant experience.  I would not think of going anywhere else.  Bob C.

I have been a patient of Dr. Hinds for over ten years. I had crown work done on Monday and I have to say from start to finish it was perfection. The injection was painless. Dr. Hinds and his staff explain each step as they are working. It is always a smooth appointment, exactly on point from what was discussed and simply a pleasant experience. It just feels like home. I could not be more appreciative to receive such excellent care each time I visit. Thank you Dr. Hinds and staff

My family has been going to Dr. Hinds for 25 years. They are perfectionists. Always professional and clean. The friendliest staff. I often find myself staying a few minutes late just to chat. Conveniently located off the 73 and near the 5 freeway.

Dr. Hinds has been been my dentist for many years. I have received the best dental care available with the least amount of stress. He has an amazing reputation in the area because he has consistently provided quality dental care to his clients. The hygienists and office staff are top notch as well. They are the most friendly, most professional group of people I’ve ever experienced in any medical or dental office.

I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dental work. I had a lot of dental anxiety when I was younger but Dr Hinds has changed all that. Whether it’s a crown, a filling, or just a cleaning, I am always taken care of and the experience is always pleasant. Everyone in the office is super friendly. I highly recommend this office to everyone I know.

Ellie S. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hinds for over 15 years.  He takes excellent care of my teeth, even scheduling immediate emergency appointments when I’ve had an unfortunate event like chipping my front tooth.  He’s kind, gentle, and meticulous, and keeps my teeth looking their best.  And his office staff is amazing, too!

Sue Z. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


very efficient Courteous staff, Dr Hinds is the very best I had a very thorough exam and X-rays and cleaning today, I know that I am always in the best care with Dr Hinds all of these 25 years of professional,exceptionally knowledgeable dentist. He is a perfectionist who has great concern for the well- being of his patients. Kirsti did a thorough job on my cleaning. I highly recommend them to everyone you would never be disappointed in the care you receive. The very best!!!!!

Dr. Hinds is an excellent dentist. We wouldn’t consider going to anyone else for our dental care. Everyone on his staff is warm and welcoming and efficient. We have been his patients for all the years we have lived in the area, nearly 20 years.

I have been a patient for over 25 years and can unconditionally endorse Dr Hinds as a great professional and practitioner in Dentistry. I have had many procedures over those years from simple hygiene to full crowns. They have been consistently painless and done right the first time. I think his best attribute is the day after: While anyone can load you up with local anesthesia and make the procedure painless, it is the next day where he excels — my experience has been virtually no discomfort in the areas where he has done his work. And that is one of the things that makes him exceptional.

Kim F. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I moved here from the East Coast in 1992, I asked a friend for a recommendation for a dentist.  She recommended Dr. Hinds.  My family and I have been patients ever since.   The front office staff are welcoming, accommodating, and professional.  The hygienist does an awesome job and couldn’t be nicer.  Dr. Hinds is always kind, friendly, and puts you at ease.  He explains everything that he is doing as he goes along.  His work is perfect, or you don’t leave his chair.  There is never any pain involved because he is so good at what he does.  He is the ultimate professional but treats you like a friend. I can’t say enough about this dental practice.  If you try it, you’ll be a patient for life!!!!

Debby S. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hinds and Staff are, without a doubt, the best! From the moment you step into their office, they treat you like an old friend. Dr. Hinds has a calming, gentle way and is full of knowledge.  Each staff member always has a sweet smile, gracious hello and are always accommodating. It doesn’t stop when you leave the office. There is always a follow up call making sure your visit and treatment all went well. Look no further, I high recommend!! 🙂

We have been patients of Dr Hinds for over 20 years now, over my 60 years I have had several dentists none of them are near the caliber of Dr Hinds who has given me the best care he is exceptionally knowledgeable, and he is absolutely a perfectionist. His expertise is well known in the dental community. And an expert in implant and cosmetic dentistry. His staff is pleasant, efficient, and truly professional.

Katie K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hinds and his staff are the very best. Even after moving out of Orange County, I still make the trip back to his office for their professionalism, expertise, and friendly attitude. When I was young, I slipped and broke my front two teeth completely in half. Dr. Hinds did the sculpting of the bondings himself and said they would last “maybe 5 to 8 years.” Well over 15 years later and I just got the bondings replaced (by him, of course). I value his skill and experience immensely.

Susan G. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


i highly recommend Dr. Hinds as a truly professional, personable and talented dentist. His attention to detail is impeccable. Dr. Hinds is continuously updating his practice. He provides updated progressive techniques and technology. My husband, children and i have been loyal and satisfied patients for 25 years. His office staff are friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable. I feel truly confident trusting our family dental care with Dr. Hinds and his personable staff.

Kristy G. from Katy, TX (Source: Yelp)


We have visited Dr.Hinds for years now! Dr.hinds and his staff make the experience of going to the dentist much more comfortable and they work hard to keep you at ease. There staff is Amazing and so nice! Being a cash paying customer for myself and kids, the staff let me know the best options to take to meet our dental needs. I will (and have) recommend Dr.Hinds to all of my friends and family.

Outstanding! We’ve been patients of Dr. Hinds for about 16 years and have never experienced such care and professionalism. If it isn’t perfect, you don’t go out the door no matter how much of his time it takes. His injections are purely perfect; you’re totally unaware that they’re happening. His staff is warm and caring, giving you pillows and blankets, anything to make you comfortable. There are no compromises for your comfort and well-being in this practice. It’s simply the best!

Carla C. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)

Dr. Hinds has been my dentist for over 20 years. He is an artist! He just finished putting new veneers my four front upper teeth and they are beautiful!!! I love them and I can’t stop smiling!  He is a perfectionist and has so much experience you know for a fact that if he does your dental work it will be turn out great.  He is gentle and patient so if you need to be numbed before a procedure you can relax, it won’t hurt.  Thank you Dr. Hinds and staff for your professional and kind treatment for many years.

Dr. Hinds is a dentist’s dentist. Very good with tricky and difficult procedures. No pain or anxiety because he explains what’s happening at every step. His staff as well are very well qualified and do an excellent job. You will not be disappointed and you will end up with a very comfortable set of teeth. Congratulations!

Our family has been with DR Hinds for many, many years. His judgement and skills as a dentist are out standing. Some of us are retired, yet we trust and refer him. WE enjoy the front office personnel for their kindest to us. We always have a written copy of all services to be performed.

Thank you Dr Hinds

Dr Hinds and his staff have been consistently great. Not only is Dr. Hinds kind, thorough, and gentle, he is also very professional and stays on top of the latest education and practices. This inspires both trust and satisfaction in his patients. In addition, the office is well-run and welcoming and the entire staff, from the front desk to the technicians, seem to enjoy their time together as well as their time with the patients (not always an attribute in a dental office).

M. Ross S. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kenneth Hinds has been my dentist since 1992 and will be until the day I pass away. This review is based on 25 years of spectacular treatment and outcomes by Dr. Hinds ! I moved to Florida in 2013 and to this day I fly back to California for my checkups and treatments when needed. I chose Dr. Hinds when I moved to California in 1992 based on in-house recommendations from the Dentists on staff at our company. The point I am making is that I also know the industry side of the dental business.I had major work done due to my own neglect and stupidity. Dr. Hinds made a plan and then worked the plan. I have had teeth extracted, bone grafting, numerous implants and many crows to correct and bring back a fantastic smile with a beautiful set of teeth ! Writing reviews is not my cup of tea and have written less than 5 in my 62 years on this earth. I felt compelled to give credit where credit is due ! It says it all when my now wife that I met in Florida also travels to California to see Dr. Hinds. the number of great comments we get on our teeth is truly remarkable !! My wife is a professional athlete and competitor in the fitness world as well as holding a current beauty pageant title and competing for a major title this year. Yes, her teeth and looks are not only important, they are critical !!!!!!!! Dr. Hinds is the professional to see if you care about your outcomes and looks………..

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


It was suggested to me, by my son, that I visit Dr. Hinds. I was so impressed by his professionalism. He was so caring and concerned about my dental needs. He sat down with me and patiently guided me through what he could do for me and made it realistic and affordable. He is quite an artist. He wants things perfect and believe me, his work is BEAUTIFUL!!! His staff is so helpful, thoughtful and very efficient!! I highly recommend him. Sincerely, JoAnne M. Laguna Niguel.

E. B. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)

Elizabeth D. from Lakeside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Hinds for 15 years. That in itself shows how well he and his staff have taken care of my dental needs.

He has redone my smile!! It is always a ” pleasure” to go and see Dr. Hinds and his staff. If searching for a Dentist, Dr. Hinds is more than worth checking out!

I have been going to Dr. Hinds for about 12 years. His knowledge and experience make him the best in the business. He is the ultimate perfectionist. He and his staff make sure you are completely comfortable during your procedure. If you ever have any questions or concerns he and his staff are always there to help. It is always the friendliest place in town.

Dr. Hinds completed a very complicated 5 unit bridge for me. His meticulous work was perfect for me. I especially like his “bedside manner” when he explains what he is doing in real time. I recommend him without reservation.

Larry S. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I/WE have been a patient of Dr. Hinds for over 20 years. We travel over 60 miles to have his dental care for my wife and myself. He is the best dentist we have ever had complete a  procedure. He is consistently the ultimate professional. His experience and vast knowledge along with his continuous office updates make it very pleasant to visit for his services. His current staff, are the very best and are concerned  professionals. Follow up calls to check on recent procedures are always made. If you require the best, look no farther, this is where you need to be seen.

Roxanne E. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are looking for the absolute very best Dr. Hinds is your only choice.   Not only is he exceedingly experienced, his standards include  only one option; perfection. He takes his time explaining every procedure, so no surprises.
He has been my dentist for many years-never anything but the absolute best outcome and I have sat in that chair many hours. The office staff is as friendly and accomodating as he is. Simply a very pleasant environment all around.  You wont be disappointed.

Dr. Hines and their staff are “always” so kind and accommodating! I have had numerous appointments over the last several months and my service experience is always top quality. Dr. Hines is so thoughtful in the work he does — you can tell quality is his always his number 1 priority. I wish I knew about Dr. Hines years ago 🙂
