I have never experienced such fantastic dental care as I have at Dr. Vetter’s office. It feels like I’m having a spa day when I’m there for my teeth cleaning and exam. A massage chair and essential oils are just part of the special treatment. They are incredibly caring and very thorough in their practice, I can’t say enough about them. I always look forward to my visits!

Dr. Vetter is amazing…your first visit with her is approx. 2 hours long.  She takes any necessary   X-Rays (if you have current X-Rays from your previous Dentist, she will request the X-Rays to be emailed to us)
She then does a very comprehensive oral exam, and between the X-Rays and very thorough exam she will form  her clinical  diagnosis, explaining everything as she goes along.
Then the best part, she does a very and detailed cleaning of your teeth (she was a hygienist first and then attended USC for her doctorate in Dentistry.   She will explain her findings and give you options for treatment- NO upselling and no pressure to accept her treatment plan. If you decide to do nothing, she just explains the consequences of non- treatment or explains different options.  When I left her office I felt like that dental visit was the most complete dental visit I had ever had in my life!!
If you want honesty and excellence, please go see Dr. Vetter-you won’t regret it!!

I used to be afraid of going to the dentist until I met Dr. Vetter. She made going to the dentist a wonderful experience! She was so personable and friendly. She made me feel so comfortable and cared for. I highly recommend her to anyone looking for a dentist who is not only knowledgeable but who has staff who goes beyond the call of duty for her patients.

Dr. Vetter and her team are outstanding. Dr. Vetter is very caring, knowledgeable and thorough. The staff is very friendly and kind. I would highly recommend Dr. Vetter for your dental needs.

Kristy Vetter, DDS recently did some work on my 72 year old mother at the Runnymede location. While my mother is a senior, she is definitely independent and headstrong! She mentioned that Dr. Vetter has a great rapport with her patients, and the way she spoke to my mom was as if she had known her for years. The treatment my mom received didn’t go as smoothly as was hoped (tooth pulled, new bridge needed), but the staff at Runnymede were quick to attend to her needs. We understand that sometimes thing do not go as perfectly as planned, but the Runnymede staff were pleasant and diligent in taking care of her. In the end my mom is very pleased with the work done, complications and all!

Dr. Vetter and her Team are top notch when it comes to cosmetic dentistry. Irene is an awesome hygienist….doesn’t over look anything!!! They all go above and beyond to make sure your comfortable and getting the best care possible. I would recommend Dr. Vetter and her Team to everyone I know…..I must say I’m very particular about my teeth. Last year Dr. Vetter updated my 6 veneers across the top and I can’t tell you how fantastic they look. Everyday and all day long people comment on my teeth, but NOT for standing out like 6 fake white chicklet pieces of gum, but for how natural and beautiful they look!! Dr. Vetter really knows her stuff!!!(…)

I have been to many dentist since my mother started taking me every 6 months at age 5.  Recently, in the OC area, i was frequenting a dentist that was very inferior.  I finally listened to a friend’s recommendation and went to Dr. Vetter.  She was AWESOME.  She takes great care.  She is so friendly and truly services her patients as friends.  I would give her a 10+.   Her work is excellent and she explains everything to your satisfaction.  I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!

Diane S. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I switched my dental care to Dr Vetter last year. I cannot say enough great things about her. She is caring, kind, and gentle. I have been more than pleased with the entire office staff. I’ve had cleanings, a crown replaced, and I’ve got Invisalign. That I don’t mind going to the dentist now says something, I’m a lifelong dentist hater, Dr. Vetter has made me a happy patient!

Toni G. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never done a yelp review before I met Dr. Vetter. After working in the dental industry for  30 years, I have finally found my home.  My first crown was done by Dr Vetter on the tooth that has been bothering me for 3 years. It is now my favorite tooth. I already smile bigger since Dr Vetter is closing the gap between my front teeth with Invisalign. Best experience that I have ever had in a dental office, and I have had a lot of good experiences in a dental chair.

Wendy C. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vetter has been our family dentist for over 20 years and could not be more pleased with her expertise as well as her friendly staff!
I recently had laser teeth whitening in office and am absolutely thrilled with the immediate results.
Basically a quick hour procedure that is pain free and thorough. Left with sparkling teeth and full trays for touch ups.  
Would highly recommend Dr. Kristy Vetter for any dental procedure big or small as well as cosmetic

Asil S. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr. Vetter is the unicorn of dentists. I had a procedure done that required anesthetic shots. Now I’ve gotten plenty of these shots in the past and they hurt each time. It doesn’t help that I’m terrified of shots. I don’t know what type of magical powers this Unicorn Doctor possess but I didn’t feel a thing!! Seriously. She also doesn’t pressure you into paying for additional treatments. If you need something done, she will tell you all your options and not just the most expensive one, as many dentists do. Nancy, her dental assistant, is also great!(…)

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


Dr. Vetter and her entire office staff are great.  I’ve been there twice now, and she makes you feel as comfortable as possible.  I had a filling done this morning, and I can honestly say it was the least painful experience at the dentist ever.  I would highly recommend.  You won’t be disappointed.

Karen H. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vetter and staff are highly professional and trustworthy.  Best dentist I have ever had.  Dr. Vetter has the most amazing way with children and none of my three were ever nervous or scarred to go to their appointment.  That speaks volumes!!!

Robert P. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been dentist phobic. Consequently it’s been over 20 yrs since I had a dental check up & teeth cleaning. I saw two dentist prior to finding Dr. Kristy Vetter which wasn’t a good experience as I felt that my fears were annoying. Therefore, I saw Dr. Kristy and although I wasn’t on board with having deep teeth cleaning I went ahead and had it done. Dr. Kristy’s approach approach alleviated (most of my anxiety) by taking the time in answering my questions, being gentle and letting me know ahead of time what she was going to do. So, I feel incredibly fortunate to have an excellent, compassionate, dentist with a great professional and friendly staff. I highly recommend Dr. Kristy.
Thank you Dr.Kristy

Dr. Vetter has been my family’s dentist for 10 years and I wouldn’t go anywhere else. I’m a big chicken when it comes to dental work – I just have a sensitive mouth and gums.  But Irene, one of the hygienists in the office, does an outstanding job. She’s very thorough but gentle.

Dr. Vetter is terrific – she always gives advice about what should be taken care of right away and what can be watched for a while. There is never any sales pressure. You can tell she has the best interest of your teeth in mind – nothing more.  I hate getting shots, but she has a way of doing it where I barely feel it – and I feel everything when it comes to my gums. I almost don’t even think about it anymore when I know an appointment is coming up that requires a numbing shot (almost…). But thanks to regular visits that doesn’t happen very often.

Dr. Vetter is a great dentist and runs a great office. She and her staff are simply outstanding.

Robert E. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family of 5 have been going to Dr. Vetter office for more than 10 years.  There staff is polite, courteous and efficient. I would recommended Dr. Vetters office to anyone who is serious about dental work.

Professional and friendly staff. Calm environment and I love the results thus far.

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


Several years ago, I began looking for a new dentist.  I was frustrated with “Brand X” dental clinics – the ones where you get a new associate every time you visit.  I knew a local Endodontist, and asked for a referral.  Without hesitation, he strongly recommended Dr. Vetter.  I have been her patient for two years and have been impressed with every aspect of the practice.  Starting with the highly knowledgeable office manager, Loann, every employee is top notch.  The hygienists are meticulous and take time to ensure thorough cleanings.  All of the employees have been with the practice for years, and the camaraderie is obvious.  Dr. Vetter herself started as a Dental Hygienist and takes a holistic approach to dental care.  She and the other employees are actively involved in local study groups with other dentists and are up on the latest techniques.  Recently, I brought my elderly mother for a consult.  Dr. Vetter’s staff helped her with a new set of dentures, and have worked tirelessly to make sure they fit perfectly.  Everyone is kind and they go out of their way to accommodate patients in urgent situations.  In dentistry, like other services, you get what you pay for.  Dr. Vetter uses the highest quality dental supplies to ensure a safe experience and the finest result.  I feel very lucky to be a patient in her practice and would recommend Dr. Vetter without hesitation.

Mary S. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kristy Vetter is amazing!  My family started seeing her about 6 months ago.  I was blown away by how thorough she was with each and every one of us.  The diagnostic tools that she uses were never even offered to us at our old dentist’s office!  We were presented with treatment plans and given the opportunity to decide what dental work to pursue and what to delay.  She was able to solve problems that had been ongoing for many years.  I was particularly impressed that even on the day that I had a lot of dental work done, that I was not even in pain that afternoon.  The mood in her dental office is genuine cheerfulness and it makes it a great place to go.

I would recommend this office to everyone! Dr. Vetter and her staff are amazing. I always know I am getting the best quality dentistry from a staff that genuinely cares about me.

Found Dr. Vetter by absolute chance after moving here from Colorado. I’ve had LOTS of experience with dentists over the years and Dr. Vetter is the best dentist I’ve had in 30 years.. Hands down, best I’ve ever found…

Christine L. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started seeing Dr. Vetter about four years ago after my dentist moved.  I’ve gone to the dentist consistently for most of my life so thankfully I have very few dental issues.  That being said, as I get older, there have been some things that have needed to be addressed.  Dr. Vetter does an excellent job explaining what’s going on and different ways to address any issues.  Also, I’ve never been to an office where the hygienist is so involved.  Prior to going to Dr. Vetter’s office, I would have my exam and talk with the dentist and then the hygienist would come in and do the cleaning – very rarely having any type of in-depth conversation.  That’s completely different with this office.  Even as an adult I have learned so much about different ways of brushing, flossing and overall dental care.  

My goal is to have my original teeth forever and I feel that I’m getting the best care to reach that goal.  From Dr. Vetter, the hygienists to the front office staff, they’ve all been great.  So much so that I drive out of my way to go every six months.

Edward M. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Kristy Vetter and her staff for about 13 years.  Dr. Vetter and her staff are exceptional.  If you’re looking for a Dentist, you will be extremely happy choosing Kristy Vetter, DDS.

Tyler B. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family decided to switch dentists about a year ago or so, and we have all been very happy with this choice! Kristy and her staff are super caring when it comes to each of our individual plans and explaining everything. I admittedly may have let my mouth health go *a lot* during my time in college… but I’m now seeing progress because of the course she and her team have set me on. My cleaning/filling appointments have all been quick and the staff very attentive/professional when working on me. There’s a very personal touch at this office which I don’t think my family has ever experienced before! Can’t recommend enough…

Sara M. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


‘ve been going here since I was a little kid, and I have nothing but fond memories. Not only do they do great work, but I am always treated with kindness and respect. Every experience in the past 15+ years has been pleasant and comfortable!

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


This is the best dentist office I’ve ever been to! I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kristy Vetter for many years and can tell you that I’ve been treated with great service each and every time I visit her office. Dr. Vetter is a superb dentist and is very thorough in her examinations and recommending the best treatment plan for YOU. Not only is her dental work top notch, but she is open and honest about how to best care for your teeth and gums, so that you can have a future filled with healthy dental cleanings and exams! I trust Dr. Vetter’s expertise and gentle caring advice she offers during my visits. On top of the excellent patient care I receive from Dr. Vetter, her staff of dental hygienists, dental assistants and front and back office personnel is more than a joy to be welcomed by when I arrive at the dental office. I’m always greeted with smiling faces and a friendly attitude, which reminds me more of visiting a long time friend than going to the dentist! Truly, a special group of people! Each time I leave Dr. Vetter’s office following an appointment, I walk away feeling like everyone in the office genuinely cares about me and my health, which is exactly how it should be. Everything from the staff, to the cleanliness of the entire office, to the comforts of the waiting room, to the amazing back massaging dental chairs, to the superior service, makes me feel 100% confident that I’m exactly where I need to be when in need of dental care! I feel lucky to have found Dr. Kristy Vetter and would recommend her services to anyone looking for quality dental care and a dental office that truly cares about YOU!

Had to change my dentist due to a relocation from (a different city). After a ton  of searching my wife and I found Dr. Vetter. Wow! Personable, professional, great demeanor, and pricing that was very competitive. Her advice is a water pic . Ha! Hope this helps someone.

Jackie K. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vetter is a top notch dentist!  She studies to stay on top of the latest advancements in the field and passes these onto her patients.  She is knowledgeable, kind and very gentle.  She will do everything she can to make the process as painless and as perfect as possible.  
Thank you, Dr. Vetter, for your wonderful service and very kind staff!

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


I have been coming to Dr. Vetter for about 10 years. I trust her entirely with all my dental work. She has always been very thorough and never in a rush. The office is clean and the staff is very friendly. You are treated like family from the moment you walk in. I recommend all my friends and family to see Dr. Vetter without any hesitation. She really cares about her patients and is exceptional. Thanks Dr. Vetter and staff for always taking such great care of me.

Bonnie M. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff was so helpful and courteous.  Dr. Vetter was very professional and through. She answered all my questions.  She explained what she was doing each step of the way.  Such a pleasant dental experience.  Thank you!!

Tina L. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vetter and her entire staff are not just friendly, they are absolute experts in dentistry. They are always thorough and precise (Dr. Vetter does not settle for anything less than perfection) and answer any questions I have, no matter how many.

Kevin T. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am usually deathly terrified of dentist!!  Dr. Vetter’s sensitivity and her patience helped me get through this. While I was in the chair my anxiety immediately left me, due to the comfort I felt with her.  Her and her team were wonderful and VERY helpful. I’m genuinely  excited to go back to her office. I have referred EVERYONE I know. All around GREAT EXPERIENCE!!!

Nat L. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vetter is very sweet, caring, punctual and professional.  Her work is outstanding- precise, thorough and minimal discomfort. Her staff is very helpful and welcoming. I’m so impressed, I’m switching my kids here from their pedodontist:) No scare tactics or sales pitches- a real dentist:)
