I’ve been going to this office for many years and love the family feel to it. Everybody’s so kind and welcoming. I got a chance to try the ozone therapy with my cleaning recently and I noticed my gums are a lot pinker and healthier. Dr Abdulla said the ozone kills viruses bacteria fungus and parasites, so I said , go for it. It’s great. I actually feel like I have a cleaner mouth. Thank you Dr Abdulla and Jackie for your continued care! I’ll be back.

Ann Abdulla is very compassionate. She is by far the gentlest dentist I have ever had. She takes away the “fear” of going to the dentist. I highly recommend her. She will be my dentist as long as shes still in practice.

I can’t say enough great things about the office staff – they are caring, professional, and they make you feel like you’re one of their friends. Don’t hesitate to make an appointment if you need any dental services or you experience sleep apnea

Diana J. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Abdulla to have two fillings replaced.  She was very gentle and kind.  She talked me through every step and I felt no pain.  My fillings are perfect!  I have also gone in to get my teeth cleaned.  The hygienist was excellent.  Her front office manager is also great.  She was very helpful in sorting out my insurance.  Dr. Abdulla will be my dentist for a long time

Kerney T. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always snored very loudly.  I tried many different solutions, but with little relief.  When my wife started talking about sleeping in another room, I knew I had to do something.  When I saw Dr. Abdulla, she indicated that there can be several reasons for snoring, but it can be remedied.  Sometimes very easily. I had previously had a sleep study that did not indicate there were any major problems, but Dr. Abdulla suggested that a dental device (i.e. mouth guard) could solve the problem.  She was able to take the molds of my teeth that day and with 2-3 weeks, I had the mouth guard. What a difference!  My wife said I barely snored the first night and it only took one adjustment to eliminate the snoring completely! Dr Abdulla accepted my insurance and I only had to make the co-payment.  No surgery, No sleeping is a certain position or other remedy.  Just a fast, simple solution to eliminate the problem.  It has been a year since I got the mouth guard and it is still working!  My wife believes that Dr. Abdulla is amazing! I would recommend Dr. Abdulla to everyone.  She is friendly, professional and very knowledgeable.  If you want to stop snoring or see if you can get rid of your CPAP machine, call Dr. Abdulla and she how she can help sleep and live better.

I’m so happy that Dr. Abdulla has branched into Holistic Dentistry, which is so important for meeting the needs of my Functional Medicine patients. It has been very difficult for me to be willing to refer my patients to many other holistic dentists in Southern California, whose integrity and “holistic” practices have been unacceptable. Oral devices are usually my patients’ first choice when diagnosed with mild sleep apnea; it has been good to learn how many patients with severe sleep apnea can have better management by using both oral devices and CPAP.  For both sleep dentistry and holistic dentistry, Dr Abdulla’s knowledge base, ethics, and thoroughness are simply excellent

Noor A. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went into Dr. Abdullah’s office for my first TMD treatment today. She first provided me information around helpful exercises and what foods to eat/avoid. I appreciated her willingness to take the time to explain to me what I should do throughout my day to ameliorate my symptoms and lesson the pain. After provider these explanations and accompanying handouts, she worked on both sides of my jaw and used a variety of methods to relax my muscles. She answered all my questions about these methods knowledgeably, helping me to understand how and why they were helpful to my condition, which also helps me to know how to deal with my symptoms outside the office. Eileen, the dental assistant, was very gentle in the process of getting an impression for my splint. All three of the staff I met today – Dr. Abdullah, Eileen, and Jackie, the office receptionist, were very kind and helpful. Thank you again Dr. Abdullah, Eileen and Jackie

Robin D. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am thrilled with my results!  Dr. Abdulla has helped me with my sleep apnea.  I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea and was avoiding the cpap machine.  She suggested I try the dental guards as an alternative.  I am sleeping through the night and I am not yawning in the afternoon.  I wake up ready to go.  
Thank you Dr. Abdulla and your wonderful staff for your help

Diego L. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t landed in better hands. I was diagnosed with mild sleep apnea and my cardiologist recommended Dr. Abdulla. From day one , as I walked in her office, has been a calming experience. Her staff (Patricia and Jackie)…are also outstanding, making sure all the time that you are ok. I tried the cpap machine in the past and I couldn’t use it. This device works miracles, I sleep better and I can take it with me when I travel for business. She also offered me a weight loos program that I couldn’t do due to a personal chronic illness, along with the sleep apnea  device, but I heard that it worked for many people.
So one night, I had a toothache, and I got Dr. Abdulla’s cell number, so I gave her a call asking if it was Ok to take certain type of meds for the pain. She called me a few minutes later suggesting a different medication for my pain. A truly savior…an excellent professional who cares about her patients and not like the others that want your money only. I will go back to her for any dental problems in the future, with my eyes closed. A great professional and a great dentist.

Best dentist ever! I don’t like going to the dentist, but Dr. Ann makes the process and treatment as smooth as possible. She is very gentle and is detail oriented. I can trust her to make sure everything is taken care of. Would recommend.

Anthony D. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


To heck with CPAP machines! I tried CPAP years ago and it didn’t work very well. In addition, who can sleep with the creature from ALIEN strapped to your face? Dr. Abdulla and her staff were able to get me in at the end of the year and they expedited the whole process in time for me to claim on last year’s insurance. Saved a lot of money!   This dental appliance is so easy to use. It’s also so small I can keep it in my pocket when I travel. A few years ago, I was fitted for a sleep apnea dental device by a different dentist. The device was uncomfortable, it kept breaking and the whole measurement and examination process was less scientific. Now, I’m able to sleep on my back! And I don’t worry about my breathing stopping. This is huge for me. I haven’t been able to sleep on my back since I was in my twenties

Kaitlyn H. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Abdulla and her staff are absolutely amazing! I started my tmj treatment a little over a month ago and after four sessions I am feeling incredible, and my headaches are completely gone! Dr. Abdulla as well as her team are compassionate, helpful, and really care about their patients! I could not have gotten any luckier, I highly recommend Dr. Abdulla! 🙂

Tony F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ann Abdulla runs a great practice. She is very compassionate with her patients. She takes the time to properly examine, clean, and repair teeth. She is also very gentle. I’ve had plenty of dentists poke and prod making the whole experience a nightmare. Ann does her best to make the experience as comfortable as possible, which reduces my anxieties of the  dentist. If I have any pain while getting a filling done, she will gladly stop and give me more nova-cane. She now even has laughing gas which I’m excited about =) Overall, I highly recommend Ann Abdulla. You will never go to a different dentist

Adrienne M. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. Abdulla for TMJ and sleep apnea.  I had recently got back from a trip and thought I had hurt my neck on a pillow,  I had been to see a chiropractor 3 times to no avail. She believed my neck hurt so bad from the TMJ.  (I just thought I had a clicking jaw).  I was going to go for physical therapy.  She said just give me 4 visits for TMJ and if you are not feeling better then go to PT.  My neck was feeling better after 2 visits!   My neck pain is gone and I am sleeping so much better since I started wearing the mouth piece for sleep apnea.  I highly recommend Dr. Abdulla!

This is the best office I’ve ever been to. The home-like and warm atmosphere makes me feel very relaxed whenever I go there. The professional staff and Dr. Abdulla really changed my life by attending to my sleep apnea and dental needs. Dr. Abdulla made me a sleep apnea device which helped me sleep a lot better. Her gentle approach and knowledge in the field makes me feel very comfortable. It has been the best decision I’ve made.

Bill P. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have suffered from Sleep Apnea since the early 1990’s when I was told I gasped for air at night. Had a sleep study performed and went with a CPAP machine for 7 yrs. Finally decided to have the throat surgery and was successful in getting off the CPAP machine. Well I got older and body/neck has changed, so I decided to look into a mouthguard. Found one that used plastic bands to work but was not really designed for the work I thought it could handle. Meanwhile my wife started to “Purr” louder and more often, so I told her she needed to look into this. She went to our PCP and she recommended my wife head over to do a sleep study. The place recommended Dr Ann Abdulla and she took impressions and guided my with with a personal mouthguard that when she used it the first night, I had to check to see if my wife was breathing. My wife awoke refreshed and no lunchtime naps were needed anymore. My wife then suggested I go to her. First meeting Dr. Abdulla was great & Explained everything to me. She took impressions and about 3 weeks later I got my mouthguard. I chose the adjustable one to fine tune it as I got use to it. Us men’s start to sag in our neck areas and this is where the sleep apnea affects us. It truly is a “Silent Killer” putting stress on you heart and raising Blood Pressure.
I give Dr. Abdulla Excellent ratings as someone that desires a truly “rewarding night of sleep”

This has  been a great experience so far. A doctor referred me to Dr. Abdullah. I have sleep apnea and have become intolerant of the machine. So now I have a new dental guard, which I’ve been wearing faithfully for one week. I went in to have it adjusted and come to find out, the hinge is defective. Dr. Abdullah noticed this. Her office sent it right back and cannot wait to get it  back from the company in NY. It’s already helped me tremendously and I’m sleeping better than I have in years. Imagine when I get it adjusted! Thank you, Dr. Abdullah and staff. Very caring and knowledgeable , Jacquie and the front office lady have been great.

Anne P. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so pleased with the results of my ProSomnus dental guard for my  sleep apnea. Dr. Abdulla was recommended to me by Hoag Sleep Center following my sleep test results. I truly wish I would have done this sooner! My husband wishes I did, too 😉 I definately sleep better and do not require a nap to get thru my day. I found Dr Abdulla to be very knowledgeable & compassionate in her approach to treating my sleep apnea. Jacquie is very helpful and friendly at the front desk. The office is calming and efficient. I highly recommend Dr. Abdullah

Peter H. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me add another 5 star review to Dr. Abdulla’s Yelp. I had sleep apnea and for the last few years have used a cpap machine. To say that I disliked the machine would be an understatement. Dr. Abdulla and her staff were just terrific. She made me a plastic mouth appliance for the s.a. It was done in about 5 stages over a period of weeks…..I would use each stage for 2 weeks and then move on to the next stage. If I used that miserable cpap. machine for 4 hours a night I was lucky. Now I use Dr. Abdulla’s oral device all night, every night. The sleep apnea is now history. I couldn’t be happier.

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


Firstly, I want to say that seeing Dr. Ann Abdulla was a life changing experience for me and I am very grateful to her and the staff.  I have had diagnosed sleep apnea for over 14 years and have been using the c-pap to treat my disease.  over a year ago I was so discourage to be tied to an electrical outlet to get a good night sleep. So I went into my Kaiser Doctor and was referred to Dr. Abdulla to be fitted for a dental device for sleep apnea.  The whole process was a bit discouraging for me because upon adjusting the dental device I had an outer ear burning sensation and this caused me to have to be titrated at an extremely slow rate.  i wanted to give up but I didn’t because Dr. Abdulla and her staff is very kind and always called to remind me that I had an appointment the day before.   So when the device was adjusted to a level the Dr. Abdulla was comfortable with, I went to Orange County Sleep Center to have a sleep study.  After my results came in I saw my primary sleep doctor from Kaiser and he was very pleased with my results.  My study showed scientific proof that my apnea events went down from 10 events an hour with c-pap, to 3 apnea events an hour with the dental device.  My Kaiser doctor told me that my sleep apnea disorder is clinically resolved with the dental device.  I am so happy that I perseverred and I owe that solely to the professionalism, honesty, and kindness of Dr. Abdulla’s office. If I would have gone to my other dentist, who I no longer see, to get my dental device I would have not followed through to the end.  I recommend anyone who has sleep apnea in the Orange County area to see Dr. Abdulla and see if the dental device is a solution for your sleep apnea.  She  told me that many clients have better results with the dental device compared to c pap.  Also, I just started to see Dr. Abdulla for dentistry as well.  I ended coverage with my previous dentist in San Clemente.  I now see Dr. Abdullah and discovered that me previous dentist was dishonest.  I kind of felt that before but now I am certain.  So, I appreciate you, Dr. Abdulla, and your staff.  You have truly changed my life.

I have been going to Dr. Abdulla since I was very young. Recently I have been having TMJ problems, to the point that it was becoming difficult to chew my food. I started TMJ physical therapy with Dr. Abdulla and was already feeling much better after my first session! She is very gentle and has the right technology to bring relief (ultrasound and laser acupuncture were part of my session). I will definitely be back for more TMJ sessions!
