I’ve trusted the care of my teeth to Dr. Wallace and his staff for 20 years.  He is an outstanding dentist.  I highly recommend Los Alamitos Dental Care for your general dentistry needs.  Michelle and Shelby are two of the hygienists at Los Al Dental and both have excellent skills.  The office accepts early morning appointments and offers an optional in-house dental plan for those who don’t have dental insurance.  Los Al Dental cares about their patients.

Dr. Wallace is a personal friend from childhood. I’ve been going to him for the past 22 years. I initially began seeing him simply because he was a friend, but honestly, he’s the best dentist I’ve ever had in my life. It was really hard letting him look into my mouth that very first time because I knew I needed a lot of dental work, but now after having many cavities filled and several crowns later, I wouldn’t trust my dental work to anyone else. I trust him 100%! He is the best! Also, Connie has been my dental hygienist for the past 22 years. She is absolutely the best also! Lucky me to have the best dentist and the best hygienist on the planet!

I Have been a patient at Los Alamitos Dental care for almost a year now. It has been by far the most professional & stress free experience! The receptionists are all very friendly! My mom has always stressed her dentist visits, I referred her to Los Alamitos Dental Care and she said it was the best experience, Dr. Wallace is great at taking care of his patients. Thanks Los Alamitos for taking care of not only myself but my mother & my sister as well!

I now live an hour away from this clinic, and they don’t accept my HMO, but I still go here because it is a GREAT facility. Everyone, from the dentists to the hygienists to the assistants to admin, has always been very accommodating with appointment scheduling. They have been my savior twice when dealing with crown issues. Their out of pocket prices are pretty fair, as well.

Incredible. Everyone on staff is happy and looks like they enjoy their work. Dr. Wallace was absolutely friendly, professional, and experienced. All my questions were answered. I was treated with great overall care.

My 3yr Old Daughter Addison had her 1st dentist visit with Dr Wallace. She loved every minute & how special she felt throughout the entire office/staff. The next morning…Addy said, I had so much fun & I want to invite him over. Great impressions are set with my daughter & with her parents. Thank You Los Alamitos Dental Care! Addy’s Mom & Dad.

It’s hard to just write about how amazing my dentist (Dr. Wallace) is without giving the entire staff an amazing review! I have not had one bad encounter and everyone goes out of their way to make you feel comfortable and that is exactly what I needed . I have had some terrible experiences in the past with different dentists which terrified me and I put off going to the dentist because of This fear. I was able to explain everything I want to do to make my smile Beautiful and also everything I was afraid of and Dr. Wallace was extremely understanding and helpful. He explains everything he plans to accomplish and he is very thorough with you. I can promise you this, I will never choose a different dentist! They have a new patient for life and I couldn’t be more excited for what’s to come! Thank you to all the staff at Los Alamitos Dental Care!

I was recommended this dental office maybe 15 years ago. The quality of care is amazing. I have sent numerous family and friends this way and all have loved the doctors as much as I have. Dr. Winer has a very gentle hand and communicates every step of the way to make nervous patients like myself at ease. I trust him completely. My children have seen doctors Hahn, Zell, and Wallace- all are great with kids and are informative and make proper recommendations for the best interest of my children. I always speak highly of my dentists and the front office staff. The entire office makes the dental experience a positive one.

April N. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff at Los Alamitos dental is outstanding!!! Been coming here for 10+years but today they saved me a lot of money. I set up an appointment to get a consultation for a root canel at another office when I questioned said office on their $147 consultation fee to see if that fee would go towards the work being done and they said no it would not. I walked into Los Alamitos dental for advice and they not only found me a different office to go to they also found out that the other office was out of my network which they never told me that was the case. I’m so grateful for the staff going above and beyond for me.

Christina H. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Los Alamitos Dental Care for several years now and have never been disappointed. The staff is professional and friendly. Paula the dental hygienist keeps my smile bright and healthy. She does great work. My experience with Dr. Winer has been amazing! His work and personality is stellar. A real Gem! Couldn’t keep him due to a change in dental insurance with my job. I was sad, however Los Alamitos Dental Care had other Dentists to accommodate my new Dental plan. That’s how I met Dr. Wallace my current dentist. I’m so happy I was still in good hands as both of these Dentists are well experienced and Caring. Excellent Dentists! Thank you Dr. Winer and Dr. Wallace for my Great smile! 🙂

Shelby S. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Google)


I’ve been going to this dental office since I was 6 years old, to this day have not had any complaints. Dr. Wallace and his staff are always amazing. The front desk staff is accommodating and will work to fit you in. They also help with getting your next appointment scheduled while waiting. Like I said Dr. Wallace is awesome, he explains everything he does in full and is happy to answer any questions you have. Seriously the best Dentist out there! Thanks Dr. Wallace and staff for always making my visit to the dentist fun!

Lorie W. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been looking for a new dentist for a while. I was referred to Dr. Wallace by a friend who was very satisfied with her experience. My previous dentist was great and in my opinion hard to replace but just too far for me to travel to his office any longer. I found Dr Wallace to be very professional and communicative and really seems to love what he does. The entire staff and atmosphere is very professional, upbeat and and friendly. The hygienist was great and really helped keep me as comfortable as possible during my cleaning as my gums were very sensitive. Lastly, they are about a 5 minute drive from home. I’m super satisfied. I would definitely recommend Los Alamitos Dental Care

Floyd F. from Hawaiian Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been using this firm for five years or more. My Doctor is Gary Prinz. They are very competent and quite knowledgeable. Office staff is very knowledgeable and helpful. I have had a lot of work performed by them, from cleaning and scaling to an upper plate. I am completely satisfied with them and would recommend them highly. They accept credit cards, debit cards, and most dental insurance. Parking for the office is somewhat limited but usually space is available when I go there.

Pat P. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


After years of avoiding the dentist out of fear, the day came with excruciating pain, that I was going to have to see a dentist. I did some searching and reviewing online I came across this office and I am so thankful I did. My initial consultation was with Dr Wallace and he was very helpful in putting me at ease and taking the time to explain what I was going to need done to eliminate my pain as well as not condemning me for neglecting my teeth for so long. Turns out I was going to need 2 root canals and 2 fillings. They usually do the root canals there but, the my insurance did not have that Dr in my plan. Had the procedures done at another office that I will review also.(They were just as good as this office and have had no problems). My follow up visits with Dr Zell have been awesome. I had the two fillings and a crown done and have to say that my procedures have been completed with minimal pain and discomfort. My hygienist Mary Anne is great as well. I have completed all of my deep cleanings and have healthy teeth and gums. If you have fear of the dentist or just want a dental office that does great work with great people, this is the place.

I have been coming to Los Alamitos Dental Care for the past couple of years and I must say hands down best dental office I have had. Excellent customer service and appointment setups/reminders, as well as a warm and caring feeling from the hygienists and the doctors. They perform thorough exams for 1st time patients and every time I have come for cleanings they are excellent. Personally Dr. Kerry Hahn is fantastic – he has done a great job taking care of some old cavities and also done great work for some of my close friends! Abundant parking in the back of the building – huge plus

I have never felt so good in a dental office before. I have some hereditary issues that affect my teeth and when another dentist told me I would have to lose them all I was devastated and just kinda stopped paying attention to my oral care.  I wasn’t flossing like I should or rinsing. Had a toothache and came here since it is close to home and saw Dr. Wallace. He put me at ease and also let me know that most of my dental issues were fixable and while I did need to have a few pulled, I could keep most of them. What a relief!!!

Randy L. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been visiting LADC for a long time. The team, and I mean team, is very proficient with a smile and caring attitude. They have a ton of hygienist to choose from while the dentists are all local and home grown from either USC or UCLA Dental School. They take most dental insurance plans, so you should call first to check coverage, but this does not take anything away from the excellent service and kindness they provide every trip in. WOOHOO! It’s as good as it gets! I live in Irvine near UCI and make the trek all the way up to Los Al just to visit them. THAT’S how good they are. Happy Teeth Cleaning and Fight On!

Tim C. from Harbor City, CA (Source: Yelp)


THIS IS HOW DENTISTRY SHOULD BE!!!!!!!!!!! I’ve had two previous dentists before Dr. Wallace was recommended to me from a friend. First dentist was when I was growing up as a child. Really nice, but painful procedures and didn’t really explain much. Second dentist was when I moved out here to LA. Very impersonal and I didn’t feel comfortable. I finally checked out Dr. Wallace after avoiding the dentist for several years. I can honestly say I was BLOWN AWAY on my first visit. The entire staff is EXTREMELY friendly, non-judgemental, and I believe they TRULY CARE about their patients. I actually look forward to my visits because I know I will get a very personal, professional, and thorough visit. If I were running a dental office, this is how I would run it. No wonder they have a bunch of 5 star reviews.

I just started with Dr Wallace and Kathy after 35 years with another who retired and sold his business. First meetings very encouraging. Cleaning recently was unusually great. I have more to do soon. And if Administrative performance (terrific) reflects dental performance, I will be in good hands.

I have extreme anxiety about going to the dentist. A friend suggested I try Los Alamitos Dental and I am so happy I did. Dr Wallace and the whole staff made me feel relaxed right from the moment I walked in the door. I didn’t feel like I was being chastised for not going to the dentist as often as I could. The dentist just said let’s move forward and and we came up with a great action plan. I whole heartedly recommend aloe Alamitos Dental if you are look for a great dentist for yourself and your family.

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


I am so grateful to have found a good dentist – who is genuine and professional. And everyone at the office is super nice and easygoing. It’s super clean inside too. I feel like I want to go back and hang out there just because everyone is so nice and friendly. I wish the whole world was like how it is in this office. On the business side – the way they treated the cleanings – the X-rays – they are very informative and tell you useful info – I learned many things while I was there on how to take care of my teeth better. And when I got my filing done – it was done really quickly and precisely – I knew I was in the hands of someone who knew what they were doing – and they were all so nice about everything on top of that. Also – the rates are realistic and reasonable – the pricing I am responsible for after my insurance coverage was insanely low as my insurance is quite average on what they cover…so cheers to them on that front I feel like I cashed in on some of my good karma to find this place and I feel like they are now my best friends as well 🙂 I truly am relieved / blessed / grateful to have found this dentist!!!!!!

Dr wallace is the best. ! I have been coming here for 17 years Dr Wallace is amazing and all of the staff are just wonderful . He has done my veneers root canals and fillings and any hygienist you see you will be pleased with . All of his staff are amazing the dental assistants and front office girls I have referred many friends to Dr Wallace he is very friendly and makes you feel at ease thank you to Los Alamitos dental care excellent service

Jennifer G. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Los Alamitos Dental Care for a little over two years. I come in for two cleanings each year. I always ask for Mary Ann to be my dental hygienist because she is especially knowledgeable about taking good care of your teeth AND she is extra gentle when she cleans my teeth. I trust her completely! I’ve recommended several of my friends who dread dentist visits to go to this dental office, so now I am recommending it to you too! They have excellent customer service and they give you courtesy calls to remind you about your appointments!

Katie C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Did you know getting your teeth cleaned ISN’T supposed to be painful??? Elizabeth has rocked my world! I only see her every six months but she always remembers exactly what’s been going on in my life and I literally always have a pleasant experience at this office, mostly due to her kindness and talent as a hygienist! I am about to be dropped from my parents’ dental insurance, so I freaked out a little when I was about to leave last week because I assumed that I would have to change offices…turns out they have in-office insurance that’s insanely affordable! I don’t even live near the office anymore and I still plan on staying there! Can’t say enough good things, I haven’t seen the actual dentist more than once in the 5+ years I’ve been going, which to me should be attributed to Elizabeth, her teeth cleanings, and her excellent dental advice! Are there more stars I can give??

I went in for a couple of fillings this morning and I just wanted to say thanks to Dr. Wallace for doing an excellent job!  Great bedside manner and all.  My whole experience here was great.  I called for an appt. the night before, got in first thing the next morning, and there was practically zero wait time, even with several patients in the waiting room before me.  It turns out that I may need more work on one particular tooth, but in the meantime, this filling did the trick and I no longer have any pain or sensitivity.  Yay!  I will absolutely be back for my future dental needs.

Recently switched dentists and my only regret is that I didn’t find this place years ago. They are by far the best dental practice I’ve ever been to. They have multiple dentists always available. They can make time for you on no notice, nights, Saturdays, and someone is always on call in case of an emergency. They charge less than any dentist I’ve been to for much better service, and the quality of materials and the skill of the staff is a cut above. I can’t think of a single thing I would change about this place.

Jay S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to agree with the many people who have complemented Dr. Winer and his staff. My experience is that I’m always greeted with a smile and a hello by my first name when I arrive at the office, and seldom do I have to wait more than 5 minutes beyond my appointment time. The environment is like visiting family. For my dental needs, I consider Dr. Winer a five star Dentist. His skills are excellent. He explains the problem and then the solution, and then proceeds with the work paying close attention to my comfort level. When he is finished, I know I have had the best dental work possible. On a regular basis, I now schedule visits with the hygienist. Dr. Winer monitors the work making sure any questions are answered and resolved.


We look forward to designing and maintaining your smile for a lifetime. Call today to reserve your appointment. We offer extended office hours, as well as Saturday appointments.
