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

Leslie L. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had braces at 19, but due to lack of wearing a retainer and my wisdom teeth coming in, knocked them all out of aliment again. Dr Kimball saved the day. I got the Damon system and what a difference in experiences! The brackets were clear on top and very comfortable, the metal brackets on the bottom were nice and small. And best of all, pain was so minimal even after an adjustment. A few teeth were sore here and there but NOT my whole mouth like the first time. And the results? AMAZING. My teeth look and feel perfect!! Anyone who wants straight teeth, this is the place to go. I only recommend this Orthodontist office. Great staff, two locations and a they create wonderful smiles. I would get them on again if needed because I know it wont be a horrible and painful experience like when I was a teenager on the late 90s. Get started on a better smile, you will not regret it.

Dr. Kimball and his office staff are incredible! They are caring and professional and always helpful. My daughter went to Dr. Kimball for braces a couple of years ago and we are so pleased with the results. Her teeth look beautiful! Every appointment with Dr. Kimball was handled quickly and efficiently. New appointments were always set at a time that worked with our schedule. It is a pleasure to go to Dr. Kimball’s office because everyone is so friendly. Thank you Dr. Kimball!

I highly recommend that you take your child to Dr. Kimball!  He is simply “The Best!”  His team is phenomenal, kind and so supportive!   My daughter’s teeth are “perfect!”  We drove up from San Diego for our appointments because Dr. Kimball and his team are that good!   They offer great snacks and Icees, too!  You won’t be let down and you will be beyyyond satisfied.  My daughter has beautiful teeth and a beautiful smile and we can only thank Dr. Kimball and his team for that!!

Kris G. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a wonderful experience. I “interviewed” 4 Orthodontists in the area before choosing Dr. Kimball & his team. Dr. Kimball had the best price and also a plan that was the least invasive. The kids occasionally get to spin a point wheel (if they’re doing what’s asked, brush, floss, wear their rubber bands, etc.) and they accumulate points for special rewards at the end of treatment !! They usually have a sweet treat for the kids and/or siblings in waiting area and water or hot chocolate, coffee and tea for the adults too. We received notch service from start to finish. Financing was easy and affordable. All the gals in the office are so nice and always make you feel at home and very comfortable. Come to Kimball first, you will be impressed.

Dr. Kimball and the staff are always smiling, friendly, and most of all very professional. My kids get excited when they find out we are headed there for an appointment. They love all the extras like the video games, cookies and hot chocolate, “Mom likes it too”! From the moment you walk in the door you feel such positivity from staff and patients alike. I am so happy we chose Dr. Kimball, as our many years of orthodontic visits have been such a pleasant experience!

Damon N. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Its not often I’m driven to write a good review, but my experience so far has completely exceeded my expectations. From the moment I walked in the front door, I have felt like a valued customer. The office is very nice, beyond what I would expect from a dentist office, the computers and machinery is clean and new, and everything is well organized. Without even talking to anyone, I knew I could trust the service here. Talking to the staff only made me feel more comfortable, and welcome.  My consult was fast and informative, and I didn’t get the feeling that I was being sold anything I didn’t need. The staff is friendly and has (on 2 occassions) stayed a little late to accommodate my busy schedule. The actual braces have been painless and without problem, making me wonder why I have heard so many negative things about having braces. I would highly reccomend Dr. Kimball to anyone entertaining the idea of getting braces.

Courtenay C. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kimball and his staff have been such a blessing to me! I am an adult who is completing my first-ever orthodontic treatment and I feel I have been in the best hands possible for this journey.  I never feel old or out of place and everyone at the office is super friendly, professional, warm and knowledgeable. Dr. Kimball is so laid back and kind and I feel really comfortable being honest with him. He is so experienced and knows so much so I’m excited to see my end result!

Dr. Kimball and his awesome staff have been a big part of our lives for several years. After bringing my two daughters in for their appointments, I decided to get braces for the first time in my mid-40s — it was one of the best things I ever did for myself! My youngest daughter is just about finished with her treatment and the three of us will have matching beautiful teeth. We have gotten to know Dr. Kimball and his staff very well and they are a terrific group of people. They are experts in their field and they are clearly a tight group of coworkers — a well-oiled machine! Of the current staff, special thanks for Tanya, Sue, and Georgina. We miss Lindsay, Melissa, Sandra and Suzette. Thanks for everything, Dr. Kimball and staff!

Lynn C. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


My grandkids had their braces done here, now I have them! Dr Kimbal has a very caring and competent staff, and they all seem to love their job! I recently lost one brother and a another brother was critically ill, consequently I had to change my appointment, and when  I explained why they could not have been more kind… Then I received a lovely note in the mail …..then when I finally made it to my appointment, they gave me a GORGEOUS orchid plant! I was blown away. ( and I was very teary) This was all so very genuine! I LOVE this group! And my grandkids all have beautiful teeth (pretty soon mine will be too).

Robert S. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Imagine getting braces at 45 years old in order to get your 11 year old daughter to get them too. We are better off for it too! The people at Kimball Ortho are exceptional. You see it in every experience and interaction with each person.  At first I wasn’t so sure they were genuinely “that happy”, but despite all my suspicions I wasn’t able to find any evidence to the contrary.  I would hire any of the people there to work for me in an instant. My final exit review included X-rays and uncomfortable closeup photos of my very open mouth. I was fortunate to have Kira take me through the indignity and she made the entire process as comfortable as possible and actually kinda’ pleasant.  She’s a great example of everything that is right with this place and these people. I recommend them 100 percent!

L. T. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter has only had her braces on since August, and I am amazed at the changes already!  Dr. Kimball and his staff are so warm and kind, they make the process easy.  I also really love the way the educated my daughter about what would come next, as well as how to care for her braces.  When she did have a wire snap, she knew just what to do.  No worry or fuss.  They are really a terrific team.

Kimball Orthodontics is a pleasant experience from beginning to end, which says a lot for any dentistry related treatment visit! After seeing the brilliant smile Dr Kimball achieved for my teenage daughter, I went into braces for the frst time to correct my bite and overcrowding. Having all of my wisdom teeth, I wasn’t expecting to be able to keep those and correct my crowding but Dr Kimball was confident I had the space. At this half way point of my treatment, my teeth have been flared to make space, and my teeth are in line for the first time. It has been a process and I cannot wait to have the brackets removed to reveal the panoramic smile Dr Kimball is known for.

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


Dr. Kimball put my second set of braces on my teeth when I was 61-years-old.  I was nervous to go through the process that I had been through as a teenager once again.  He assured me he could make my smile beautiful again within 12-18 months and he delivered on his promise.  The staff was always so friendly and professional, always on time and made it easy and comfortable to complete my treatment.  It was a pleasure to have Dr. Kimball as my Orthodontist again.  His father was my orthodontist when I was a teenager.  What a coincidence!  Thanks Dr. Kimball and staff for the great treatment!

Jeney B. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


We were always very comfortable with Dr. Kimball and his staff. My 2 daughters completed Phase 1 before we moved out of the area. The results are beautiful! My oldest daughter has gone on to Phase 2 with another Ortho in our new area. Her treatment has been much easier because of the careful work done by Dr. Kimball. My second daughter’s mouth is nicely aligned and will only need cosmetic straightening once all her adult teeth are in. We were very pleased with the treatment plan and services recieved and would happily recommend Dr. Kimball to anyone in need of orthodontia.

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


As a new patient evaluating various orthodontic offices, my timid nine year old felt comfortable and confident about using this office and team of professionals.  As a parent with schedule constraints, I especially appreciate the availability of office appointments in comparison to other orthodontists we used that had limited availability which ended up prolonging the treatment period.  The staff and office are very professional & my son is excited about the incentive program, a great idea.

Danielle Grady-Oyhancabal (Source: Facebook)


We have been going to Dr. Kimball for years. He came highly recommended through mutual friends. He has done an amazing job with my girls. My daughter Tiffany had a severe stage 4 underbite that he corrected through braces. First stage completed today for my younger daughter Gia. Thank you for all you do Dr. Kimball and staff!! 5 stars all the way!!

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


My daughter has been a patient of Dr. Kimball for over 3 years. When we were told by her dentist that she was going to need braces, Dr. Kimball came very highly referred from several sources. During her first appointment we were told that my daughter wasn’t quite ready for braces so we should come back in six months to check again. I was so impressed with Dr. Kimball because he put the needs of his patient first. After another six months, we were told again that she wasn’t ready. However, six months after that, the time had come to put the braces on. Dr. Kimball’s staff was so helpful in providing the information I needed regarding the braces and payment plans. Dr. Kimball and his staff are always so friendly and helpful. It has been a pleasure to see them for my daughter’s appointments. Her top braces were removed this month (hurray!) and we’re hoping her bottom braces will be taken off next month. I truly appreciate all the care and time that Dr. Kimball and his staff have put into my daughter’s treatment and ensuring a perfect smile!

We bring our 10 year old daughter to Kimball Orthodontics and it has always been a great experience. The kids love to come, even my younger son enjoys going, and they do a wonderful job of making it a memorable and fun place to be. My daughter’s teeth look so much better, they did a wonderful job! My daughter loves to tell people about how awesome Dr Kimball is! Thank you all for making it such a great experience for our family!

I waited 20 years to get braces and I picked Kimball orthodontics for many reasons, but it wasn’t until I met Dr. Kimball that I realized I was in good hands. He has two separate locations one in Laguna Niguel and the other in Laguna Beach and they are absolutely beautiful and the staff matches the scenery. I’ve always been treated with nothing but respect and I’ve always been greeted with nothing less than a smile or laughter. Aside from both offices being immaculate they are in my opinion one of the most technologically advanced orthodontics offices I’ve ever stepped foot in, I have two sisters lol. I could not speak more highly of the staff or of Dr. Kimball, they are nothing but professional and just generally very happy people. Every time I walk out of that office I walk out happier than when I walked in. Thank you Dr. Kimball and I would like to say thank you to the staff that worked so hard to keep my teeth straight.

James M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


By far the best Orthodontice I’ve ever been to. I have been to 3 other places before coming here, and each place wanted me to have at least 2 teeth pulled before having braces put on. Dr Kimball did a thorough diagnosis, and explained to me I need no teeth removed. Removing teeth is a last resort. His expertise left me at ease, and I was eager to get started with Braces. My braces have been on since June 2008 and are almost ready to come off. I will have had my braces on for almost 1 year and 4 months, with NO TEETH PULLED! I Highly reccomend DR. Kimball and his higly experienced staff.

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


Dr Kimball and the staff at Kimball a Orthodontics have given my son a perfect smile and a great experience throughout the process. They have been patient and kind while taking the time to explain the process each visit. They keep a very nice clean office and waiting room including a game rooms and refreshments for you while you wait. All four of my kids have come here for braces and they have all had a great experience!!

Lisa Dupont (Source: Facebook)


I have brought all 4 of my daughters here and LOVE LOVE LOVE this office and the amazing staff! Dr. Kimball is kind, fair and will do what ever it takes to get your kids teeth EXACTLY where they need to be. You can trust him and his honest opinion! Thank you Dr. Kimball for taking such great care of my daughters. I must also add, Dr. Kimball has been kind enough to allow two of my teenage daughters to volunteer at his office after school as part of one of their classes at DHHS.

As one of 4 children raised working class, braces were not an option, not even a dream of mine. I do recall the teen years and covering my smile alot of the time. It wasn’t a question as to getting my girl the braces she needed and so a dream began,(a little one). At 55 I got my braces and I am really pleased that I made the decision even at my age to do it for me. I got the great-est care possible with Dr Kimball and his team whether it was the financial,unscheduled oncall appt with Sue, I can’t say enough. I am a recent graduate, YEAHHHH!!

Cheyenne P. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


We were referred to this office by my sister in law. So far, everyone has been professional and really friendly. We enjoyed the initial tour. We like that there’s a station for brushing your teeth before your appointment. And the complimentary cookies and drinks are a nice touch. I also appreciate the rewards program. The consultation went smoothly. The treatment plan was explained clearly.  I like that we can confirm appointments with a click of a button via email.  We love Tanya! She usually sees My daughter at her appointments and she is wonderful! I only wish someone could help My daughter figure out how to work the game room. Other than that, we love this office. We are glad we chose Dr Kimball for my daughter’s orthodontic needs.

Raquel R. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing. The entire staff was extremely helpful & kind (Tanya, Georgina & Laura to name a few). I’ve been wanting braces my whole life & am so glad I went here for them. Dr. Kimball knew exactly what I wanted with my teeth & Tami layed out my options for types of braces & payments which made it so easy to confidently move forward. Overall, you cannot go wrong going here. I highly recommend it.

Phoebe S. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Peter T. Kimball DMD! my sister had had him for when she got her braces, and my mom got her retainer there for her teeth. When I found out I was getting braces, I was sooo excited! I had wanted braces ever since my older sister had them. I had been looking forward to going to the dentist every visit just to see if they would say I needed them, and when they did I was so excited! When I went for the consultation, he was very nice and explained the specific purpose of the braces for my teeth. I took my x-rays and then he set up an appointment for May 6 2009 (yes I remember the exact date :D).  When I went I got the Damon System Braces and I found out there was a reward system. The reward system was for how well you maintained the braces, flossed, brushed, and wore your Kimball shirt. They also give you a little starter bag – which if you needed anything else, they would be happy to give you – which contains floss, a cleaner thing for the braces, a tooth brush with the cleaner thing on the end, wax, and a dental mirror. They recently changed the reward system and it is even better than it was before! You can get up to a $100 gift card! I live in Oceanside and we drive all the way up to Orange County just for this orthodontics! Thats how much we love Dr. Kimball and his highly trained proffesionals! The service is also wonderful. I still have my braces on, but Im getting pretty close to getting them off. I will surely miss Kimball Orthodontics when I get them off!

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


I almost never right reviews but, I will when it comes to service that is great! My family (sons) have been patients of Dr. Kimball & Staff for 10 years. I met him when my now 23 year old was 13 and again when my 12 year old was 8. Dr. Kimball and his staff have never been anything but professional, friendly and easy-going. I recommend them to anyone who is thinking about orthodontic work for their kids or themselves. We couldn’t be happier with the service and the results.

My twin sons, Cameron and Cole, have had their orthodontics work done with Kimball Orthodontics. Cole just got freed from the braces grip, and Cameron follows this month. As much as they will LOVE having them off, I personally will miss the visits and the TREMENDOUS staff that works at Kimball – ortho and front desk (you know who you are)! I love everyone working there (even Dr. Kimball, but he’s not as cute as everyone else), and will feel like I am missing part of my family when we’re all done and gone. That will be a sad day… 🙁 BUT – my kids will have straight teeth for a lifetime (or at least until they forget to wear the retainers)! Thank you ALL for those smiles (yours, and my kid’s). Great work! …oh yeah. And they have free cookies and coffee. Don’t forget the cookies.

We interviewed several orthodontists before deciding on Dr. Kimball and we couldn not be happier with our choice. His front office staff go above and beyond to accommodate appointments around school schedules and even when we had a bracket come loose they fit us in asap. The hygentists are always smiling, happy and gentle with my son. Dr. Kimball is very caring, professional and upfront with his treatment plan. I personally felt like the price was fair and the methods he is using are the latest technology; other orthodontic offices we interviewed didn’t have the pano X-ray machine in house and expected us to pay for X-rays, bring them back and then they’d give us an “estimate”. We have a two stage treatment and are only about halfway through with stage two but I highly recommend Kimball Orthodontics to anyone interested in fixing their smile.

Jessica B. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our 2 sons don’t hesitate when we head over to their orthodontist, Dr. Kimball.  Dr. Kimball and his staff are so friendly, patient, kind and care about doing the job right the first time.  It’s nice to know your children are in the hands of professionals!  Casey, and the rest of his staff are gentle, always explain what will be done to the children, and keep the patients comfortable. BONUS: The boys love watching all the skiing movies Dr. Kimball has while in the chair, it keeps their mind off whatever is going on in their mouths! THANKS DR. KIMBALL!!!!

My experience with Dr. Kimball has completely exceeded my expectations. From the moment I walked in the front door, I have felt like a valued customer. The office is very nice, beyond what I would expect from a dentist office, the computers and machinery are clean and new, and everything is well organized.

The actual braces have been painless and without problem, making me wonder why I have heard bad things about having braces. I would highly reccomend Dr. Kimball to anyone even mildly entertaining the thought of getting braces. P.S. Buy the retainer insurance when you get your braces off. I’ve already used it and it’s only been about a year.

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


I have never felt pressured or unsure of the necessity of the treatments. Prices were up front and never had add on’s or changes. The staff was so friendly with my daughter and helped her through the process like pros. I loved the appointment process. They would contact me and made it so easy for a busy mom to get the appointment as well as get in and out of the office on time. Our family has enjoyed Dr. Kimball and his office staff so much and appreciate the transparency and easiness of the orthodontic process. Thanks so much again!

Zach W. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t recommend Kimball Orthodontics any higher.   All four of my children have gone to Dr. Kimball and we don’t have any complaints.   They are very professional.  There are two offices for your convenience, one in Laguna Niguel and one in Laguna Beach.   They have a video game room for the kids, the kids earn points and can use those for prizes, and kids check in on iPads.   The staff is very friendly.   They offer multiple options for payment or payment plans.   Definitely recommend this orthodontist.   He’s a great one.

From day one to the last, I’ve noticed several things that stand out: The office runs consistently on time, not once were we seen late. Positive, family like environment…everyone seems genuinely happy to work here. I constantly hear conversations happening between office staff and patients about life in general but the questions asked don’t come across superficial and contrived. There is a real interest in the person. It’s a peaceful place to be. There is music on low and a video with no sound on all the time. With the common noises of the office, it’s almost surprising that it’s not distracting or even overwhelming but the balanced levels are great…. I really appreciate the tips and tricks you pass on to my daughter. It’s obvious you’re educating her at every opportunity. You’re nailing your mission statement list posted in the entry. Congratulations!

Jennifer B. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


After several years of checking in every six months the time had finally come for my son to get braces. Everyone I have ever dealt with at Dr Kimball’s office has been friendly and professional. From making appointments to reviewing the treatment plan, the staff goes above and beyond to help. Tanya was awesome. She answered all our questions and made both my son and I feel comfortable. I would highly recommend this practice to my friends.


Dr. Kimball of Kimball Orthodontics is the leading Laguna Beach orthodontist for braces and Invisalign. As an expert Laguna Beach orthodontist, Dr. Kimball has treated a variety of conditions with Damon metal braces, Damon clear braces and Invisalign. I fell in love with orthodontics as a child when my father, Dr. Stanley C. Kimball II, also an orthodontist, gave me the opportunity to make his retainers and other orthodontic appliances. After learning that I had a real artistic gift, I focused my efforts on learning to be an orthodontist. I grew up locally, attending El Morro Elementary, Thurston Middle School, and Laguna Beach High Schools. Directly after high school, I attended Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, and served a (two-year) mission for my church in Puerto Rico. I earned my doctorate at Washington University, where I graduated top in my class. I then went on to specialize in orthodontics at Marquette University, graduating with honors. What makes me different from all the rest is I understand that every face, like a snowflake, is unique and different. As an orthodontist in Orange County, CA, I carefully custom design each smile with my 10-Step Kimball Smile Analysis. This – combined with my experience, knowledge, and careful eye for aesthetics – allows me to enhance whatever makes you special by making your smile the very best it can be. Over the last 25 years, I have had the fortunate opportunity to provide tens of thousands of patients with beautiful, panoramic, natural, healthy smiles. By utilizing state-of-the-art orthodontic technology and techniques, I take pride in ensuring that each patient enjoys maximum comfort and the shortest treatment time possible. I am passionate about sharing my expertise with everyone, and I’ve had multiple patients travel from all parts of the country to experience the Kimball Orthodontics difference. Kimball Orthodontics has also been featured in many prestigious magazines, including Parents and Family Fun, for our excellence in orthodontics. I am a lecturer and leader in orthodontic software technology and the author and creator of WaveOrtho. I am the only orthodontist in the world who has designed and developed a comprehensive Orthodontic Practice Management Software to efficiently manage every aspect of an orthodontic practice. You can find it running my own practice, as well as many other premier orthodontic practices throughout the world. During my free time, I enjoy distance running. I have completed over 30 marathons, including the prestigious Boston Marathon 9 times and 2 full Ironman races. I also enjoy surfing, snowboarding, skiing, golf, spending time with my wife (of 30 years!) and 3 children, my new grandson “Nash”, and hanging out with my six brothers.
