My previous dentist had told me I needed a root canal asap. I decided to seek a second opinion, and this is how I ended up at Ladera Ranch Dentistry. My experience has been AMAZING! Kristina, at the front desk, is such a warm person who has the ability to calm any nerves. She had the ability to instantly relax me. Helen, the office manager, also has a very calming nature. After my consultation with the doctor, she spent over a half an hour talking me through all of my options, until, finally, I came up with a dental plan I chose, one which I was completely comfortable with!
Dr. Rivera is the best! A mom of two, she has a nurturing nature with gentle yet confident hands. She checks in often to make sure pain is minimal and you are as comfortable as possible. Marco is also fantastic. As Dr. Rivera’s assistant, he brings further calming presence. He is gentle and caring.

I had 4 fillings done a month ago and Dr.Chamberland did a great job. Now I finally had my wisdom teeth extracted last week and I’m so happy I found this place I was put to sleep to do it so it was so easy. They made me feel so comfortable, honestly the entire staff did a great job. I just told my brother he is next, he needs to go then too!

I have been going to Ladera Ranch Dentistry for my 6 month check up and cleaning for the past 3 yrs and I always have a very pleasant visit. The reminders for my appointments are very helpful and always appreciated. Due to my very hectic schedule, I tend to forget about my appointments, sounds funny but true. Everyone is very competent and very friendly here, from the front desk, assistants, hygienists and the doctors. This office is always seem to be in sync with the past paced technology, from their ipads and digital xrays, they are just awesome. Very efficient service from check in to check out. I have referred a lot of my friends and family here and all of them are always very happy with their experience; all the time.  If you want a friendly and efficient dental office, Ladera Ranch Dentistry is the place to go. Satisfaction guaranteed. =)

I have been going to Ladera Ranch Dentistry for 10 years and LOVE everything about the office! Great staff, spectacular customer service, always friendly and accommodating when making my appointments. The doctors have such integrity, they never try to suggest treatment you do not need. That is the major reason I have been a patient for so long.

We’ve been coming for several years. Service is excellent. Everyone is very nice and professional, appointments are always on time and without delays. They have late appointments available as well as Saturdays which is very convenient. Highly recommended!!! 🙂

I’ve been to so many dentist over the years and i have NEVER had such an enjoyable experience!!!!! From the minute i walked in with Shana at the front desk, who was extremely friendly, to the doctor who made it very apparent that she was not pressuring me to make a costly decision right away but would keep an eye on the issue from a previous dentist, to my all time FAVORITE hygienist I’ve ever met…Rich!!!! He was so kind hearted, especially because i had a my child with me who has never been to the dentist and i didn’t want her to be scared, and Rich showed her everything he was doing and made it so fun for her!!! I didn’t get the name of the woman also in the back that gave my little one balloons and a goodie box which made her so happy!! I will definitely be going back for all of my dental work!!

We’ve been coming for a few years now. I must say they are the best dentistry in south OC! Service is always at its finest, always so welcoming. And did I mentioned they are great with kids? Love how they have a little play area. All the dental Staff and office are very professional and kind and they make your visit very easy and comfortable always on point they also have Saturday’s available which is very convenient for me and my husband. I highly recommend Ladera Ranch Dentistry. Come and pay them a visit you won’t leave disappointed . 5+ stars for sure.

Ladera Ranch Dentistry is a great place for your dental work. Myself along with my family, grandparents and girlfriend have been coming here for over 2 years now and always had a great experience. The office staff is all very friendly and welcoming that goes in hand with the spacious, clean and well decorated office. Rich was my hygienist and he did a great job and was very thorough in his work. Last year I had a mouth guard made for night grinding and the guard is still holding strong! Overall great office and highly recommended for all your dental needs!

We brought our 13 year old daughter here to have a few teeth pulled. She was a little nervous on the way but when we arrived the staff made her feel at ease. Dr. Rivera was amazing with our daughter, as was everyone else that assisted us. We will continue driving from Tustin to Ladera Ranch Dentistry. It is worth the trip.

Going to the Dentist is never something you look forward to, but after my 1st visit to LRD yesterday, I honestly am looking forward to my next visit. They were super courteous and professional, with a clean and up-to-date office. Rich, my hygienist, could not have been nicer and done a better job. I highly recommend them to anyone in or out of the area. A+

Took my 3 year old son today to get an exam and cleaning. He was very happy with the huge selection of toys in the waiting room. Dr Rivera was really great with him. Talking about Spiderman and having him open his mouth to look at his “Spiderman” teeth. Marco came to brush his teeth and with a little more super hero talk they all got brushed. All in all, I am very impressed with this office. They have great patient care and obviously love what they do. I like the “No Cavity Club” wall. Makes kids motivated to brush and floss.

Needless to say, I’m not a big fan of going to the dentist and always viewed it as one of those necessary evils. I will say my visit today was painless, carefree, and really informative. They took the time explaining what they were going to do and showing me results via a tiny camera that took pictures of my teeth. Because nobody wants to grow old with a mouth full of rotted teeth, this visit really hit home and I felt that they had my genuine interest in everything they said. Again, dentistry is one of those necessary evils so you might as well pick someone who knows what they are doing and puts your mind at ease.

WOW! The entire staff and Doctors at Ladera Ranch Dentistry are AMAZING! Not just great – but exceptionally great! They made me feel like I was the most important patient they had all day! It seemed like their main concern was that I be happy and comfortable. They were incredibly kind and patient and went out of their way to make certain I understood everything that was happening. I can now honestly say I love going to the dentist! If you are looking for an amazingly positive and enjoyable experience at the dentist, this is the place! Even my children were dazzled!

Excellent care as always!  Thank you for taking such great care of our son. To this day, we drive over an hour just for our son to be seen, and cared for by you guys . We would trust no one else with our sons teeth and have not since 2009. Thank you, The Millers

I went to my dentist appointment at Ladera Ranch Dentistry and I had a great experience!!!!! I normally hate going to the dentist but they made my experience a great one. The doctor and assistants were nice and answered all my questions/concerns. Everyone was friendly and professional! The office overall was very clean and sanitized. I will recommend them to all my family and friends!

I had not been to the dentist in years and had a tremendous amount of fear. There was no need for me to be anxious, as they were extremely gentle, took measures to make it painless and were very kind and understanding. So great to finally find a dentist office I can trust. Thank you!

I have been going to this office for a really long time, I had my braces completed here.. Dr Mogavero is a great Orthodontist. I also have had all of my cleanings and dental work done here. I pretty much have grown up coming to this office, I started out here so young because my wholes family comes here.  I am grown up now and have a really pretty STRAIGHT smile thanks to Ladera dental and Ortho team!!!! Also I think it’s really neat that they always participate in events in Ladera Ranch & give out gifts and things in raffles. This is a really cool office. Oh and all my friends at school come here, I used to see everyone from school in the office when I would go in to get my braces adjusted.

I had lost my front crown and immediately got on the phone with Ladera Ranch Dentistry. They were able to schedule me an appointment that same day; within the next couple of hours actually! Dr. Rivera was compassionate regarding my dental emergency. I am actually grateful my initial crown fell off, it was 20 years old and this new one that Dr. Rivera completed fits/feels/looks so much better. Even the temporary that Marco crafted for me felt better than my original crown. I am very satisfied with the work that they completed for me. Also working with Helen on paying for the procedure was great, she explained everything clearly and in layman’s terms. Thanks a lot to everyone at Ladera Ranch Dentistry.

Excellent service all the way around!! The staff are very nice, accommodating and knowledgeable.  The dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth was very nice and gentle with my cleaning! I appreciated him doing a great job!!

I’m normally one to avoid the dentist, I just never had a great experience going to one until I became a patient at Ladera Ranch Dentistry. They are just so welcoming and professional and they actually made it a pleasant experience. Now I can keep up with my routine cleanings and exams without dreading them. I’m so grateful I found them. Plus their hours are very convenient.

Just relocated and needed a new dentist. Was very concerned about trying a new dentist that was going to constantly try to upsell me on services….so happy to find Ladera Ranch Dentistry!!! Great experience from the moment I stepped in the office. Very well run and professional staff!! I scheduled my next appt already!

We have taken both of our girls to Dr. Cashman. He and the entire office staff are great with the kids and us. They explain procedures, are patient and thorough. The dentist is no longer a scary experience for our kids. And their office hours a flexible.

My visit today at Ladera Ranch Dentistry, was a pleasant experience! I have never enjoyed going to the dentist….in fact I dreaded it miserably in my past. I was surprised at how easy and pleasant this visit was. From sign in at the front desk, thru X-rays, cleaning and exam, every individual that I had the pleasure of meeting, was smiling, caring and acted as if I was the only client in the room. This office was highly impressive and made me believe that this should be my new dentist!! Many thanks to them for making my Friday morning one to “smile” about!

Friendly staff and I was able to get the work needed done on my teeth in a timely manner. I really enjoyed my visit and cant wait to return on my yearly check up….I highly recommend this office to anyone….

I just got my wisdom teeth out yesterday and the office was amazing! They called the night of to see how I was doing! The office is clean and beautiful and all the staff is very friendly! I just switched from a different dentist office and I couldn’t be happier where I am now!

Everyone at this office is great!! Rich the dental hygienist is the best!! My teeth have never… ever been cleaned that well. Everyone is so friendly and they make a trip to the dentist a positive experience instead of a dreadful one.

Ladera Ranch Dentistry is a great dental office in Ladera Ranch. Very nice office in a good location that’s comfortable and family friendly. All the dental and office staff are professional and nice and make the process very efficient, easy and comfortable. Great for adults and kids. Dr. Kimberly Rivera is great. And they take many dental insurances. I would highly recommend this dental office.

My family and I have gone to Ladera Ranch Dentistry for 9, plus years now. They are professional, friendly and have provided us all with great service through the years. Nana even goes to them now!! I’m grateful to have found them. I highly recommend them.

Double Crown! Scary Right!!? As scared as I was to come in. I should have done it 3 weeks earlier. I cracked a molar and knew I needed to go see Dr. Rivera. I hemmed and hawed stressed myself. Over nothing… Still as gentle and nice as my previous cleaning visits. All the staff here all knowledgeable and explained the steps. Answered questions. My biggest surprise came 1 day later. No pain I was only sore that night/day following. If you have work that needs to be done, I highly recommend Ladera Ranch as the place to go.

I had a wonderful experience at Ladera Ranch Dentistry. The staff was friendly and professional. The office is very comfortable and equipped for 21st century care. The dentist I saw couldn’t have been more caring and friendly

I consider Ladera Ranch Dentistry as my family dentistry. They have been mine and my whole family’s dental office for the past 5 years. They go above and beyond good service all the time. Reminders, text messages and emails regarding our appointments are very helpful. They always accommodate my family whenever we have emergencies. Everyone is very friendly upbeat and seem to have a smile on their faces, from the front desk, assistants, hygienists and the doctors. Quick but high quality service from check in to check out. I have referred a bunch of my friends here and all of them are very happy plus i get a reward for referring people. This place is awesome, try it out yourselves. 🙂

First time in this office and I had a GREAT experience! Staff was very nice and polite, very clean office. They had my insurance ready to go when I got there. The Doctor was very nice and answered all my questions. I already have my next appointment to finish the rest of my dental treatment!

The equipment is all state-of-the-art, that to me is one of the things that makes me feel comfortable. Every time I visit I’m impressed with how well the team works together when you go from each room in a smooth process. I just love the way everything flows when I’m there – and they always find a good time for my appointments. And of course the dentists and dental assistants are highly skilled, gentle and friendly. This is the friendliest dentist office I’ve ever been to – I have been coming for years now.
