My two children have been patients here for approximately 12 years and the Dr. Kevin and Dr. Lee are the best, very friendly.  My kids ENJOY going to their appointments as the staff is gentle and positive in their approach. The office staff is always helpful.  I recently had an issue with my insurance and Kelly went above and beyond my expectations to resolve the issue. Thank you so much for all you do.

This is the best, most reasonably priced, pediatric dentist we could find. We were referred here by a friend and we have not been disappointed. The staff is friendly and professional. My son had to have 4 rotten baby teeth removed a number of years ago and we went to 3 other pediatric dentists before finding this one. After insurance, the lowest price we could find was over $3K. We were actively seeking a better price when our friend referred us here. We ended up paying less than $1,000. The service is better here. The staff is extra friendly. My kids actually love coming here. The work done to my son’s mouth was very quality and he experienced no pain. I have nothing bad to say about this place. Everyone here definitely goes above and beyond. We have been going every 6 months for the last 5 years and have never had a bad experience. Highly recommended!

Best pediatric dentists!! Dr. Kevin & Dr. Lee are top notch. We absolutely love them and their staff! They do exceptional work and always welcome us with such great energy. In addition to regular maintenance appointments, Dr. Kevin has removed two teeth for my daughter over the years and he always makes sure she’s comfortable during the process. It’s always been a pleasant experience for her. They are very personable, professional, and the office is hygienic. Wouldn’t go anywhere else.

Dr. Kevin is awesome! We have been going to Dr. Kevin for 13 years now. My 3 kids love going to the dentist. Dr. Kevin and the hygienists are always super nice and gentle. Even the ladies at the front desk are kind and helpful. Many times they have helped me look into my insurance plan and answer all of my questions patiently. You are greeted with a friendly hello and a smile. The office is really nice and super clean. We highly recommend Dr. Kevin!

This office is just amazing. Dr. Kevin is great with our girls and answers all my neurotic questions with a smile. His staff are gentle and encouraging with the girls as well. They are always able to complete the cleanings and exams with no fear, our kids actually love coming here and look forward to their next visits to get tokens for toys. The office design helps with the kid friendly decor, the TVs with Netflix at every station, and allowing parents stay with their children. They always fit you in if you have a concern. Dr. Kevin is thorough yet conservative in his treatment recommendations which I really appreciate. I can’t imagine taking our children anywhere else. First class care and service, and they take our insurance!

Amazing service. My daughter gets anxiety easily and they were amazing. She left smiling and has no fear to come back. Fast and efficient and everyone is friendly and helpful.

Zoe B. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


We were with our last pediatric dentist for over 10 years.  He was great but his front office people could never get our billing correct.  We eventually had enough and went through the hassle of finding a new dentist for our kids.  Some friends recommended Ladera Ranch.  We started going to them and never looked back.  My kids actually look forward to going to the dentist now, no joke!  Both dentists are very friendly and soft spoken with the kids which keeps them calm.  My little daughter had to have some intense work and they were able to do it without Nitrous Oxide.Happy to report that they have never messed up our billing either. 🙂

Dr. Hszieh is very attentive and caring with all of his patients. We have been taking our daughter to see Dr. Hszieh since she was 2 yrs old and every experience has been great! To put my daughter at ease, Dr Hszieh would explain each step to her before he proceed. Waiting area is filled with toys to entertain the kids. The office staff is always very helpful. Highly recommend!

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


After a horrible experience with our last dentist we were filled with trepidation to begin acclimating my son (who has autism) to a new practice.  From the moment we met Dr. Lee and Dr. Kevin our fears were put at rest.   They both have the most amazing bedside manner with the kids, especially children with special needs.   They made the experience so comfortable for my son he goes for cleaning without any sedation any more.  They do an excellent job and are not looking to add procedures that are unnecessary.  Wonderful place, highly recommend.

Aubra-Nicolle R. from Coto De Caza, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been taking our kids to Ladera Pediatrics for about three years and we LOVE them! Both dentists and all the staff are amazing! The kids even love going to the dentist! Best dentist I have ever been to, hands down!

Jodie W. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Google)


We’ve been see by both Dr Kevin and Dr Lee. They and their staff are great with kids. My kids love it and wish they came more often than twice a year! Clean and modern office. Plus, they have enough chairs for all my kids to be seen at once. Highly recommend!

Holly S. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone here is wonderful with kids and parents. The office is clean and has a lot to entertain/distract the kids while getting treatment. I highly recommend it (and even drive quite a distance to get here).

Genny C. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


Such a lovely, relaxed atmosphere and wonderful staff and dentists.  It’s a pleasure to bring my kids here and they never make us wait.  Jo is beyond wonderful and I wish I had one of her in every doctors’ office I go to.  🙂

Sherrie B. from Anthem, AZ (Source: Yelp)


We took our 4 year old to see Dr. Kevin. He was the best dentist we have ever been too. Now all 4 of our kids see him yearly, and they look forward to actually going to the dentist! Great staff and very friendly atmosphere! Highly recommend.

Sean H. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son was eating popcorn, started complaining of rear molar tooth pain. Being that it was 8:30 at night and they were closed I messaged the office at 2AM through yelp asking for an early morning appointment, I had been up all night with a kid in pain. At 7AM the same day, the actually Dentisit Dr. Kevin called me and had my appointment all setup to get his tooth fixed that morning. My son was nervous about going to the dentist. When we arrived his name was on the board welcoming him as a new patient. The staff was amazing, obviously a reflection of the owners Dr. Kevin and Dr. Lee. They took X-rays and had him all setup in a private room. Dr. Lee, fixed and repaired his tooth my son didn’t move, cry or flinch, these doctors are top notch professionals that make the experience fun for the kids. The office is beautiful, geared toward the kids in every way. My experience was great, my son has had no more tooth issues.

Was referred to this Pediatric specialist since my four year old child had cavities and the family dentist could not perform treatment.  Even in this kid friendly, jungle themed environment my daughter was still uncomfortable with what would be her first dental treatment.  Due to the extent of dental work required and lack of cooperation from my child my only option was treatment under anesthesia which was a very uncomfortable choice as a parent.  The experience for both my child and me was better than I could have wished for.  Dr. Kevin, Dr. Richard and the office staff are great with kids.  I would highly recommend.

We love coming to this office! We’re fairly new to Ladera and feel lucky to have found this place. We just went today (June 2020) and we’re in the middle of all the COVID scare. They took our temperature, asked the right questions, and got us out of the waiting room. They also had the new air purifiers to help with aspiration. They are doing things the right way!

Cheri M. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I bring both of my children to this office. Everyone is so nice, friendly, helpful, and really make you feel comfortable. Office is beautiful and clean. There are tvs to keep the kiddos occupied while getting their teeth cleaned. They also get a little coin at the end of their visit to get a little prize. My youngest always looks forward to that of course.You can always count on this office to be trustworthy and honest. I will continue to go here as long as we can!

jenny T. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kevin and the whole staff is amazing here! We took our 2 year old here 6 months ago and again today and had great experiences both times. The office atmosphere is so fun for kids and they go above and beyond. When our son took a seat for the dentist he got to choose any show from Netflix to watch on his own tv, got a goodie back with a fun kids toothbrush/other essentials, and even got a gold token to use in one of their gumball-style machines filled with small toys! Highly recommend!

We love Dr. Kevin and the entire team at Ladera Ranch Pediatric Dentistry! My son went for his first checkup at 2 and has become quite obsessed with the “teeth doctor.” Everyone is so friendly and nice and professional at the office and I couldn’t recommend them any higher!

This is the absolute best place for your kids. We drive all the way from Long Beach just to have our three kids see Dr. Kevin and the staff Ladera Ranch Pediattic Dentistry. They are professional and the office is clean and set up in the most kid-friendly way with custom t.v.’s at each chair and a jungle forest-type decor. They give kids a coin to put in a toy vending machine after they’re done. The support staff is efficient and the front desk very helpful and accommodating. Dr. Kevin’s rapport with the kids puts them at ease and he’s probably the friendliest dentist you’ll interact with for you and your kids. 5 stars.

Ryan D. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have worked with Dr Kevin / Dr Lee for the last 5 years.  Until now, it had been the “typical kids cleaning and x-rays”. They did a great job both professionally and making the Dentist an enjoyable experience. In hindsight, we probably should have written several positive reviews. Last week our daughter had a horrible sports accident. We called the office and were told to come immediately to the office. The staff had a chair prepared for us upon arrival. Dr Kevin dropped everything and worked on her for the next 90 minutes. He took terrific care of her (and us) throughout the entire process. Dr Kevin acted with compassion as a Dr as well as with the kindness of a parent. He followed up that night to check on her progress, leaving us his cell number and telling us to call if we need anything. As fate had it, we needed a bit more help. So, we texted Dr Kevin at 730 AM on a Saturday, he immediately responded and we were in his chair at 830 AM….immediately relieving our daughters pain. We are so grateful to have Dr Kevin as our Dr and member of the community.

My 3 kids love Ladera Ranch Pediatric Dentistry. The staff is very welcoming and make my children feel at ease while getting their teeth cleaned and checked. Dr. Kevin is very knowledgeable and as a parent I feel 100% comfortable knowing they are in very capable hands with him. Even though I’m over 40 miles from the office I refuse to take my children anywhere else. They have never complained or cried over going to Ladera Ranch Pediatric Dentistry. Dental health is very important and I recommend the office to all my friends and family.

Wish these doctors were around when I was a kid.  We had the pleasure of seeing both dentists at this office.  Dr Lee last week for my 3 yr old & Dr Kevin for my 5 yr old today.  Both boys walked out happy and DID NOT CRY!  Both dentists are personable and caring…very easy to talk to.  It was awesome to hear my boy say that he had a good time at the dentist – weird YES, but I’ll take it over screams & tears.

Liz E. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t be happier with a pediatric dentist.   They always get us in right on time for wellness visits and even for urgent visits.   The staff and doctors are very kind and patient with the kids.   Every chair has a large TV with Netflix so they can watch what they want while they get their teeth cleaned.   Our insurance completely covers all of our visits which is also a plus.   They are always super easy to deal with and my kids actually beg to go to the dentist.   5 stars easily.

Kelly D. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 2 year old had an accident on Christmas night resulting in his two front teeth being bent forward. He was inconsolable with lots of blood and two very shifted front teeth. We weren’t sure if we needed er and after waiting on hold for our nurse hotline I called our dentist in desperation knowing they probably couldn’t help on Christmas night at 6pm. We left a message with Dr. Kevin and in 3 min or less our phone was already ringing with a call back. He was calm, kind, And reassuring. He had us send him a photo and  was able to meet is immediately at the office on Christmas night when he was with his family he showed up to help us. He arrived right away and got right to work. We are forever grateful and and thankful for his kindness.

Again, this is the absolute best place for your kids. We’ve been coming here for 4 years and we drive all the way from Long Beach just to have our three kids see Dr. Kevin and the staff. They are professional and the office is clean and set up in the most kid-friendly way with custom t.v.’s at each chair and a jungle forest-type decor. They give the kids a coin to put in a toy vending machine after they’re done. The support staff is efficient and the front desk personnel helpful and accommodating. Dr. Kevin’s rapport with the kids puts them at ease and he’s probably the friendliest dentist you’ll interact with for you and your kids. 5 stars.

Jennifer B. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Google)


We have been taking our 4 children here for the past 12 years. The staff has always been so friendly and helpful, but more importantly, Dr. Kevin and Dr. Lee are phenomenal. They are BOTH gentle, honest, knowledgeable and extremely good with kids of all ages. My son just had an emergency on Memorial Day and Dr. Kevin met us at his office within 30 minutes and not only  took care of his problem, but did it with a smile and compassion, never once making us feel like we were putting him out. I can’t say enough good things about this practice and only wish that there were a million more stars to give it! My children actually like going to the dentist, in fact my son was giggling throughout his entire root canal I give them my highest recommendation!!!!

Cathy G. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve been coming here for 10 years.  Both Dr. Kevin and Dr. Lee are amazingly kind and gentle.  My kids have had everything from simple cleanings every 6 months to more complex baby root canals and extractions.  Each experience has been great.  Doctors take the time to explain what they are doing throughout the procedures which helps keep the kiddos relaxed.
We LOVE Dr Kevin and Dr Lee!!

Jeff G. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Kids feel very comfortable. They have video games and movies to entertain while in the chair. My kids have been going here for 4 years and will not go anywhere else.

Tonya R. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Well…what can I say??? It was Christmas and my 2 1/2 year old grandson had an accident at my house. My daughter and husband were very worried about where to go…what to do. She called her dentist, Ladera Ranch Pediatric Dentistry and Dr. Kevin returned call within minutes!!!…on Christmas!!! He said he needed to see them right away after my daughter sent a picture of his teeth that got smashed back when he jumped off my couch. Dr. Kevin even brought his young daughter to keep my 4 yr old grandson company. He put on a movie for them in his office. My little grandson got all fixed up and upon leaving asked if he could come back to visit me. I’m still amazed this all happened on Christmas!! Thank you Dr. Kevin….You have a good heart!!!
