Please read all of the reviews before you base your opinion on lotus dental. A majority are in favor of the office for a reason. If you notice most of the bad reviews are due to individual problems that don’t occur to everyone nor does it reflect this office’s capabilities. Ive always experienced positive encounters each time I came in. Dr. Son is incredibly knowledgable and is always very factual as to what his plan at the moment is and how it will benefit me. Not only that but he offers the best deal around, so expect others to jump on the offer. This could explain why others think the wait long to be super long but the office has done really well lately as to booking within limits and I have not needed to wait more than 10 minutes at the most. Which is understandable because sometimes other appointments go on longer than normally planned. The staff is all super friendly too! They remember me each time I come in and are all super personable to talk to. I’ve been coming here for a year and a half and have already seen a significant difference in my teeth. I couldn’t have imagined going anywhere else. Thanks Lotus Dental!

If I would have known Sunday they would be so professional then I would wouldn’t have needed to suffer through excruciating pain coming back and slowly subsiding to attack fiercly. Missed two appointments Sunday so made very patient Monday at 2 and by 4:30 I was stunned 3 extractions, cleaning of teeth and consultation were completely professional and quick.

I just had my braces taken off and I’m grateful with Dr Son Nguyen and staff. It was the best decision I made at Lotus dental specialist I was treated  like family and not a dollar sign like at other places. From the minute you arrive you are greeted with a smile and are welcomed. Everyone at Lotus Dental really care  and want you to meet your goals of a constructive and beautiful smile. I wish I could name all the staff that look the time to take care of my smile but everyone had a role in taking care of my teeth. I will be recommending new candidates and achieve that beautiful smile. It’s never to late to have perfect teeth. Thank you Lotus Dental Specialist!!

This place is so amazing! You can tell that the staff really cares about you. They are very nice and always take care of me. I love it here and I want to come back and visit! This is the place where I got my braces done. I love the results of my teeth. I would highly recommend anyone to get their braces done here! This is because I value the service and kindness of all the employees that work there. Also, I just wanted to point out that everytime you check in you get a free toothbrush! I’m honestly so satisfied with my teeth they look so perfect. I wanted to do braces for a long time now. I’m so happy that I finally made the decision to do it. Also, I’m glad I chose this place to take care of me and my teeth. They answered all of my questions and concerns before we started with any of the procedures. Overall I would rate the service and kindness 5/5. I would also rate the results as 5/5. The interior of the place is also very nice and just gives off a very professional vibe. This is the place to go to for braces if you’re in the area! Highly recommend.

First talk about the registration and waiting for service: I would give it a 3 star due to wait time. But to be fair, when you go to a good restaurant without reservation (my case) you will expecting wait time. With a lot of patients with appointments it shows they are doing something right. Second: talk about the actual services, I have my teeth cleaned. After the service done, I ask the lady did the cleaning for her name, so I can specifically ask for next time. Yes. It’s five star excellent service. I did have breaching. I enjoy my relaxing music on my phone while waiting for the procedure done. It’s over one hour required. I feel it like a breeze. By the way, it will be sensitive for over 24 hours. And when getting home, make sure use a straw to drink your wine so your pristine bright white teeth does not get stained (This trick I learn from my wife). It’s a five star service. Then I have my crown done. Yes, it’s sensitive. You will feel it. But the dentist and his helper get me thru easily. And another dentist gave me a temporary crown. It fits perfectly. The following 2 weeks, I came back for the permanent crown. It’s also a pleasant experience. It fits just right, another five star service. Third, talking about price. I’m new patient. They charge 39 for cleaning, x-ray, and examining. For breaching, they charge 99, and for the Crown, 600+ something…. It so reasonable for the service they have done. For the price, they also get my five star review.

An C. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommended this place for any service you may need. They got everything that will help you smile differently. I’m taken off my braces next week been having braces for about 20 months so therefore I’m excited!! Doctors and staffs are friendly and really helpful. Making appointment or rescheduled dates are really fast and easy. They don’t just have orthodontist but other services as well so it’s pretty convenient.. If anyone looking for the best spot to get braces or any type of dental care that you would need I would recommend this place to get it done at. You won’t be disappointed.

Michael L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Top notch office facility in the heart of Little Saigon! The doctors there are highly trained and experienced. So is the staff from the reception desk to the dental assistants. They all live up to your expectations. I would highly recommend Lotus Dental Specialists to anyone who had not so good experience going to a dental office in the past. You will be amazed of the level of professionalism they exhibit the minute you step into their office. Michael L.

Liah D. from Santa Fe Springs, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got my braces three months ago with Dr. Son and I am very happy with the service, every time I go I don’t have to wait that long. My braces are comfortable and perfect for my needs. I love the office including their cleanliness and the staff from the front to the back were very nice and they all gave me a nice experience. I would recommend this office to everyone as for my experience was quite wonderful.

Darlene T. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Lotus Dental deserves these 5 stars because every time you enter the building it is very clean and the vibe is always happy. The workers are very kind and never fail to have a smile on there faces. The wait is rarely long since the workers are always hard at work calling in patients and getting the job done while still having a positive attitude leaving every patient content when they leave. Lotus dental is always busy meaning they have many kids and adult costumes meaning this place is a very positive, great place to go. I recommend Lotus Dental to everyone in search of planning to get braces because they get the job done and are always focusing on each costumers journey of braces.

Angelo V. from Artesia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve heard so many great things about Dr Son Nguyen . The person  who scheduled me over the phone was really nice her name is Theresa. When I came in, they were so nice and friendly . I was taken back right away . Amanda is Amazing !!! She is so nice and really made me feel welcome . She explained  everything so well in detail.When Dr Son Nguyen came in he was very nice and he did the exam and looked at the photos with me and explained me about my case, and told me his suggestion for the treatment. I liked that he explained to me and pointed to me in photos what’s going on. He really took his time and made sure I was comfortable. I really love the attention and time they took to explain to me.

Chris M. from La Mirada, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are searching for an Orthodontist, search no more ! Dr Son Nguyen is one of the most patients and kind people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and his staff  is just amazing. From the second I walked in the door for the first time until well after my braces came off , I was always greeted warmly and felt very comfortable in the office. Dr Son Nguyen spent a lot of time explaining everything is asked of him ( and I ask a LOT of question ) My teeth look awesome and Ian ecstatic with the result I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Son Nguyen and his team to anyone and everyone looking to improve their smile. Thank you guys so much .

Shirley R. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Son Nguyen  and his staff are awesome ! Since the first day when I called to inquire and ask about consultation ( YES , it’s free) everyone in the office is courteous and Amanda  , Jenny, Theresa the cheesiest . Dr Son Nguyen is humble , patient, attentive, super sweet and explains everything so well. I don’t ever regret finding this place. Appointments here in Westminster location are NEVER a long wait. Facility is clean and definitely love the big screen tv on the reception area. Affordable plan , affordable price for Invisalign. Dr Son does a great job and really looks out for us to have that beautiful smile. He’s simply the best! I will highly continue to recommend  Lotus dental specialist to my family n friend

Amy N. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Lotus Dental has a clean and friendly environment. The orthodontists are very kind and gentle when handling teeth. Everything is very organized and done at a fast pace. I have had not only good experiences, but great experiences with my braces and how my teeth look now. I’m very satisfied with the work that has been done here. I highly recommend Lotus Dental not only for braces but for cleaning as well.

Maham M. from Artesia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to many dental places and this has to be the absolute best. Everyone is so friendly and so welcoming, especially Vicky and Erika who aee so kind and wants the process to be as painless as possible. The place is so clean and is so quick without forcing one to get extra things they don’t need. They want you to have a beautiful smile and I wouldn’t recommend any other dental place other than this one! I have been to so many places and none of them were as friendly and as easy as Lotus!

Winston N. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Lotus is a great facility with a great faculty. They have not yet cease to give me astounding service. The office is incredibly clean and up to date. The clean,white theme they utilized certainly enlightens the environment. Despite being populated with a plethora of clients they still manage to make my visit fulfilling under a reasonable amount of time. Something that really accentuates the satisfaction Lotus is able to provide are the iPads available for kids to keep them entertained. Overall it’s a great facility that I would highly recommend to all citizens and netizens alike.

Richard G. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


We were recommended Lotus Dental by word of mouth to have a braces consultation for our grandkids. We were concerned, not only about skilled care, but compassionate service. The kids have visited a few dental offices over the years, and they usually come home feeling stressed from their harsh experiences with the assistants, who spend the most time with them. Now, months after having their braces applied, the kids are actually excited to have their braces adjusted, due to the gentle and attentive care they receive from their dental assistant, Martina. It’s nearly a 50 mile drive to Lotus Dental, but we find it well worthwhile.

Janice S. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I give lotus dental a five star because they are very nice people I love everyone here. They are the reason I have a perfect smile on my face now. I have straight teeth. they always do their job correctly.  never have they messed up on my braces or anything. always so careful when they put my Ruber bands and wire they make sure everything is perfectly fine and that my mouth feels perfectly fine I have been going here for a year now and I love it they do their jobs well everyone is so friendly very glad I chose this dental to go to .

I have been coming to this dentist since about 3 years ago & the moment I first stepped in I loved it. The staff is very welcoming & they do a great job at making you feel cared for by always remembering your name. I came to this dentist for braces & every month I was excited to be there. I have had my braces off for about 9 months now but today I went in for extractions of all 4 wisdom teeth. The doctor was fantastic! I didn’t feel any pain & he did an awesome job of asking how I was doing. He also helped me by distracting me because I was very anxious and nervous. Will continue to come here for any treatment & I definitely recommend to everyone!

Seattle C. from Downtown Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I come to lotus for both Invisalign and general dentistry. I can’t say enough good things about this place! The office: super clean and modern The staff: everyone from the receptionists to the technicians to the doctors are super personable and accommodating. They’re flexible with schedule changes and really friendly, everyone has made me feel like I’m part of the family. The place is always really crowded, and I usually come on weekends. I’ve never waited more than 20 minutes to be called in and the doctor is no-frills about Invisalign. He checks your progress quickly and sends you on your way, which I really appreciate. I’m about halfway through and I’m already happy with my result, I can’t even imagine how it will look when I’m done! I drive from LA to come to their San Gabriel office, and it’s well worth it. Plus they’re open on weekends, which is a huge plus for me (:

Ernie P. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place ! They’re are absolutely helpful staff and they do a great job to ensure I get the dental help I need. Every time I go I am seen right away with no wait time. The ortho staff that works in the back Ileana, Vicky, Gladys, Claudia, Flor, Andy, and Dr.Son are the most helpful people there, they always answers any questions I have and works with me almost every time! I came in for braces and so far for the last 6 months I have seen a big improvement in my teeth, I am truly satisfied with these results. Overall great staff and great place.

Vanlong H. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


My case is too hard case. Last 10 years the other Doctor told me that I have to take out at least 3 tooth then I was scary and walked away! 10 years later I listen Dr. Son talked show on the radio and I made appointment for consultant… Finally I decided to braces then I convince my wife also follow me to do braces too! It about 2 months later. Many thanks Dr. Son Nguyen who saved all my tooth with his hard working time and try his best. Staff are friendly…

Jenny Diep (Source: Google)


Office clean, well organized, nice and polite staffs, Doctor who ever take care of his/her patient is really 100% focus on performance; not one man band run the show from patient to another in between, let patient sit and wait. Very professional in lotus dental. And the very good team in reminding patients of their routine checkups or treatment appointment, office is clean, equipment new and high tech. And they don’t mind changing cloves frequently! This is high light to me because I scared of touching something and go back to your mouth.

Lovely M. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Son Nguyen , Vicky ,Claudia , Nancy, Gladys , Sean and the complete lotus dental staff I thank you for your great service and professionalism. I had my braces approx 22 mos ago they were removed last Saturday . From my initial consultation forward staff has been awesome . I’ve been greeted with nothing less than smiles and the staff actually know you by first name.One of the most impressive experience is that I have never waited longer than 10 minutes to be seen and Dr Son Nguyen check my teeth first then his great assistant will adjust my braces my favorite asst Claudia and Vicky you guys are pro Thank you for my perfect teeth and wonderful smile

Chris N. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone was friendly and helpful! I went for a checkup and informed them that I do not carry dental insurance, and they were so understanding! They gave me a thorough checkup, told me what’s wrong and what’s needed to be done next, and gave me a price quote AND  discount. I will be checking in with them soon for my follow-up, and we’ll see what happens. So far, so good 🙂

Danielle T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I do love my Italian dentist there (I am so ashamed but i am very bad with long complicated Italian name).  He is so experienced, nice and kind.  He is so far the best dentist i have found in my entire (long) dental history.  I had a lot of crowns done here as a new person in the area and the office and staff are nice and helpful as well.  Overall a very well run and competent place!

Andrew T. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Nice clean office.  Looks like all new and advanced equipment..  Great customer services..  I had an extraction done here a while ago..  Dario was assistant to the doctor that performed the extraction…  He assured me that this facility was top notch and that everything would go just fine. I’m very pleased with the services..  If you go in for any work make sure to ask for Dario

Michelle L. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had braces for over 6 months and this place is very nice and the wait isn’t very long. The doctors are very kind and this place is very clean. Before, getting braces i was quite scared but it didn’t hurt very much and they made me feel very at ease. I definitely recommend this place. My favorite person that changes my wires and brackets is Vicky so i definitely recommend her.

Ngoc N. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I felt like this place has been my home ever since I walked into these doors for the past year and a half! I always feel welcome every single time I entered through these doors! I am here for braces and my sister referred me here! Dr. Son is the greatest orthodontist I have ever met! The staffs here are friendly and full of energy! The facility here are clean and well organized! I can’t wait til I get these metal babies off and see the great results that everyone has done for me!

Liam L. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


The dentist gives fast service with quality since the facility is fairly larger than any other dentist I’ve visited. They try to accommodate to your own personal schedule and actually care for your well-being. Even if the waiting room is full, the wi-fi keeps patients entertained, but usually the wait time is really short.

Kathlyn M. from Fountain Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would definitely recommend Lotus Dental for anyone who is thinking of getting braces. I have gotten my braces on and off from Lotus Dental and it was a great experience all in all. Everyone is very kind and does their job diligently. Im very glad that i chose to go to Lotus Dental because my teeth are much straighter than before and the process was, in no way, disrupting my daily schedule.

Gracey M. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Looking for a doctor who listens to your concerns and wants to help you achieve the result you want, a staff that cares to alleviate any stresses, and practice where all feel welcome? Lotus Dental Specialist is your place. Dr Son Nguyen is fantastic and all of his staff Vicky, Nancy, Gladys, Jules, Claudia, Sean  are always so friendly and helpful . I’m so glad that we were referred to them because they made the process so easy. I have Invisalign my teeth look great . I recommended them to all of my friends who are dreading the years of braces. Almost sad to see it end:)

Mario M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son has been receiving services in lotus dental specialist for about few months now. Dr Son Nguyen himself called to check on how my son doing after his braces were put on . When my son needs to be seen immediately because of his wire coming out of his braces or because wire is bothering him , they have for the most part  been able to see him that day to take care of the issue . This office is always clean and they have the state of the art technology .Im very happy with the service my son has received so far and I will use  Dr Son Nguyen for any of my family ortho needs.

Bryan H. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Whether it’s an appointment for braces or for a regular dentist appointment, Lotus Dental is the perfect place for either. Firstly, the environment is very tidy and organized all throughout. It’s visibly obvious that they make sure to keep an aesthetically pleasing space so that patients know that they care not only about their service, but the way the place is kept as well. The assistants as well as the dentist and orthodontist are very friendly and treat their patients with the utmost care and respect. Their priority, of course, is to ensure that patients get the best service and are satisfied with the results which they accomplish completely. In addition, everyone is very friendly so it doesn’t feel awkward and the visit itself is much more enjoyable that way. I would highly recommend Lotus Dental for any orthodontic or dental treatment as it is top notch in all aspects.

Khanhlinh N. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Vicky is super nice to me when I come in for check up . We talk a lot about what I eat and she gives me advice on keeping my teeth clean. I am wearing Invisalign right now and it’s working perfectly. There is little to no pain, but I just need to keep it clean. I sometimes am too lazy to take off my tray when eating so my teeth get a little stained from the candy and Thai tea. But still, it’s no worry because when I come for my check up and to pick up new trays, I ask for them to clean it for me and they give me a quick polish. Vicky gave me a polish today and now I feel more confident when smiling because there are no more stains. Absolutely a five star!

Richard L. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is very professional. The practice is very clean and if you have an appointment they normally take you in right away give or take about 5 minutes so it’s very efficient if you just want to get in and out. The Dr. is very helpful when I asked them questions about oral hygiene. They took the time to educate me and explain ways to keep my gums and teeth in tip top shape. The receptionist are friendly, informative, and they help you right away. My visits have been great so far and hope that my experience will help you gauge a better dental office and experience.
