I was super nervous to go to a new dentist after moving into the neighborhood. I’ve been in Newport Beach for 3 months, and of all the great things this city has to offer, Dr. Desai and her team have been the highlight of my transition to the area.  From the get go, as i was greeted at the front desk, i felt a sense of welcoming calm.  Dr. Desai was incredible. We had an amazing conversation for a long time that had nothing to do with dentistry!  Just getting to know each other.  But once she put her loops on, she was all business.  You can tell that she’s a expert.  Only as i came to write this review did i learn thats shes a professor at USC.  Wow!  #girlpower I worked in dentistry for 5 years and one thing that i thought was awesome was that Dr desai uses top notch dental material.  That stuff aint cheap, but trust me, it makes a difference!  I’d much rather pay a few extra bucks knowing that I’m getting grade A materials in my mouth. Thank you Luminous Smiles for making my experience amazing.  You’ve got a patient for life!

I don’t normally leave reviews but I felt like I had to. First, the office is so beautiful that it feels more like a spa than a dental office. At this Covid time, they have done a great job making you feel safe starting with the virtual waiting room. Then, the staff are so welcoming and friendly. They make every effort to put you at ease, after all, who ever wants to go to the dentist! And then Dr. Desai is so thorough and explains everything in detail so you know exactly what’s being worked on. She has the latest technology and takes great care in making you feel comfortable every step of the way. I highly recommend Dr. Desai to anyone who is looking for a dentist who genuinely cares about her patients.

I’ve had quite a few bad experiences with dentists in the past, ranging from shoddy work to superfluous diagnoses, so when I moved into the area, I wasn’t necessarily jumping at the chance to start the process over. After seeing the incredible bridgework Dr. Desai did on a friend of mine, and hearing her rave over the experience, I decided to give Luminous Smiles a go. In addition to her straightforward and informative approach to the issues I personally had, Dr. Desai was also fantastic with my children. After a rough experience at another local office, they both left their appointments smiling and happy. The office is sleek and inviting and they were happy to work with me on my schedule and took the time to walk me through my insurance premiums. Dr. Desai genuinely loves her craft and it shows on all levels.

Regan W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit seeing a Dentist in many years.  Needless to say I was nervous..  From the beginning to end, the assistant Terry and receptionist Lisa were awesome and super nice. When I sat down with Dr Desai, she was great and explained everything to me in a very caring way that was easy to understand.  Being a dentist visit, it’s never really a great experience, but I have to see, Dr Desai and her staff are really good and I will recommend them to all my friends, family and associates.

There is no question as to why you should choose another dentist or office! Dr. Desai is professional, funny, and puts you at ease with all procedures. She doesnt force you to do anything that is not needed, she just builds on your knowledge of how and what is happening. I never felt pressured and knew more about my teeth than ever. Her work is immaculate and you can tell she does all that she can to make sure everything is perfect, start to finish. Her team is just as accomodating as her and works hard to make the proceudres flow. My veneers and crowns and new smile have changed my life, I cannot thank her enough. Look NO further folks, this is your place!

Alex M. from La Palma, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the moment I walked in the office everything went so smooth! Everyone in the office is so sweet and very helpful. The X-ray tech was so very nice and very gentle during all of the x-rays. Dr. Desai is an amazing doctor & very knowledgeable. She gave me a full in depth look at my teeth & what we could do to make them even better with a really interesting 3D machine. My cleaning went well also. The hygienist was very sweet & took her time with my teeth. I think this was the best cleaning I have ever experienced. I highly recommend Dr. Desai & her office for all of your dental needs!

Pamela R. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Incredible patient care!  From the phone contact to the office environment, everything is designed to consider the patient.  I don’t know anyone who LIKES going to the dentist, but Dr. Desai makes the process as good as possible.  She takes infinite care throughout, from the initial examination to the execution of the work.  She is the first dentist that has developed a long-range plan and who took the time to explain how some things, like the movement of teeth over time, can impact the thinning of the enamel.  She is also really good at making the process as pain-free as possible, between watching Netflix movies during procedures and the excellent administration of local anesthetic.

Punam B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Desai is the best dentist I have ever had. She is detail oriented and explains her treatment plan thoroughly while ensuring her patients understand what is going on. Her office staff are friendly; the office is clean, chic, and comfortable. It feels like I’m right at home! Dr Desai is patient and has the most amazing bedside manners I have encountered from a health care professional. She really treats you as if you are her own family member. I am also having her treat my moms as she has a lot of work to be done; Dr Desai is not only making sure her teeth are healthy and well preserved –but making them look aesthetically pleasing so my mom can have a confident smile again! I certainly recommend anyone and everyone to check out luminous smiles!

Lydia B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you’re looking for an exceptionally talented dentist and a staff that will take care of your every need, then look no further than Dr. Desai and her outstanding team at Luminous Smiles! I have nothing but great things to say about this practice. After bouncing around from dentist to dentist for the past 10 years, I can finally stop looking now that I’ve found this practice. From the moment I stepped into this beautiful office, every person working there made me feel like family. Dr. Desai took the time to listen to my concerns, offered her recommended treatment plan, and also provided me with alternative treatment plans to choose from. I ultimately went with her recommended treatment and I could not be happier with the results! I can finally smile with confidence! I appreciated Dr. Desai’s honesty and all the time she spent alleviating my concerns along the way. I never once felt rushed and she exudes professionalism in all that she does. I am so incredibly happy with the treatment I received and I have referred many of my family and friends to her. Thank you Dr. Desai for a job well done!! Can’t tell you how much I appreciate you and your wonderful staff!

Sagar P. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had an amazing experience at luminous smiles. For starters, the  office has been completely made over post covid.  When you arrive, you call the office from you own personal “virtual waiting room”.  Staff called me when they were ready and immediately took my temperature. After, they took me STRAIGHT into my private treatment room.  I’m a germofobe, so this is huge for me post-covid.  Dr. Desai is the best dentist I’m ever had.  Kind and gentle but also super knowledgeable.  The best part is that they had a high tech air filter suck up particles right next to my face as my treatment is going.  (Remember, I’m a germofobe). All in, great experience once again.  Would recommend anyone needing a fabulous dentist, friendly staff and a super clean and sanitary environment to go to luminous smiles.

Cristy B. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My personal experience at this office was beyond amazing! The staff member on the phone call was so personable and accomodating. Then I came into this beautiful practice and it felt so home like. The dentist goes out of her way to greet you before anything is started. I’ve completed my  treatment and my mouth feels perfect! Dr. Desai still always greets me with a smile at my recare appointments and is always so excited to see me at every cleaning! Thanks for my healthy and happy mouth!

It’s been a few years that my family & I have been patients of this office. With the COVID pandemic, I’m sure many are fearful of going back to the dentist. Your fears should be allayed at Luminous Smiles. Dr. Desai has all the appropriate protocols in place to maintain a sanitary environment to treat your dental needs! The number of patients/people in the office are minimized to only those w/appointments. Temperature scans and health questionnaires are required at each visit. Dr. Desai even mentioned she purchased a few new air evacuation systems to decrease the amount of aerosols produced during treatment. Hate having impressions taken? No worries here! She has a cool dental instrument that scans your teeth without that gag-producing impression material! So easy. So simple! Don’t place your dental health in the backseat…it’s even more important to stay on top of your oral health to maintain a healthy body! As an RDH, I am picky about who I trust to keep my teeth and my family’s teeth healthy and in tip top shape! You’ll have high quality, trustworthy, and gentle care with Dr. Desai at Luminous Smiles!

Punam B. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I visited Dr. Desai at Luminous Smiles today for the first time. When I first walked in, it felt as if I had stepped into a spa but instead of getting my nails done I was about to get my teeth done! From checking in with Manny the receptionist to having x-rays completed by Jennifer the hygienist to having an through exam with deep cleaning with Dr. Desai, everything was absolutely perfect. The environment is calming and relaxing. Not something you would expect at the dentist office. There was a moment I dosed off as I waited for my mouth to become numb from the anesthesia. In my previous visits to a dentist office I would have been sitting there tense and clutching onto the chair. Dr. Desai is thoughtful in her process, she explains everything clearly, she is gentle and diligent during the procedure and you can sense her passion for dentistry. Worth the drive and every penny. I have found my new permanent dentist!!!!

Dylan S. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never felt more at ease and confident in my treatments performed as I have felt here! Dr. Desai genuinely cares about her patients and discusses all treatment in detail with options.  The work is meticulously done and never rushed. Thank you for making all my dental visits so exciting and uplifting.  if you’re looking for the BEST dentist, this is the place!.

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


I had heard about this office from a friend and how great it is but me but me being my skeptical self had reservations. So… I call and the lady Lisa that answered was patient with all my questions, she was so helpful and knowledgeable about my insurance she made me feel welcomed so I scheduled my first appointment. I gotta say I made the right choice. The first experience was amazing. You walk up to the door where Lisa greets you and takes your temperature (COVID-19!) and walks you in. Your then handed to the assistant who walks you into the room. Then Dr Desai comes in and right away I knew for sure I definitely went to the right place. Dr Desai was sooooo nice! During the exam I felt comfortable and at ease. Dr Desai explained what I needed and did not mind any of my questions. The office is super clean, bright and beautiful. Lisa pointed out the photographs of actual patients who Dr Desai had worked on that are up in the office, and after seeing them I can’t wait to get started with my work, cause if I’m going to look as good as those people just watch out!! Highly recommend this dental office!!From the first call to the end of the appointment I was super impressed. I will be pushing everyone I know to go see Dr Desai. You all go too!

Marissa M. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Desai is great and intelligent with her work. My first appointment consisted of the treatment I needed and my personal concerns. (Whitening and teeth crowding). I have had braces and never wore a retainer which is very common. And most of us don’t do much about it. During the exam she introduced Invisalign, I never considered Invisalign until She introduced this awesome piece of technology which scanned my teeth and showed me what my teeth WILL look like when treatment is completed. WOW! I have committed myself with Invisalign and cannot wait for the end results! Thank you again Dr. Desai for serving and believing in the art of perfection, and your welcoming team!.

Devang M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


likes going to the dentist?  Certainly not me!  Especially since I needed extensive work done on my teeth.  From the moment I walked in Dr. Desai’s office, I knew I would be well taken care of.  Her professional staff greeted me at the door and wasted little time in leading me to the dentist’s chair.  The exam room was packed with the latest dentist equipment and even had a streaming video to put my mind at ease. Dr. Desai came into the room and made sure I was comfortable during my entire procedure.  If you are looking for a dentist who is professional, one who takes her work very seriously and will make you feel like a member of her family, the you must visit Dr. Desai – I have no problems referring her office to anyone!

Dr. Desai has a beautiful office, it is very modern looking. Her whole team is amazing, especially Karen. Karen was very welcoming and attentive. She made me feel secure and at ease. When it comes to going to the dentist, I get really nervous, but Karen made sure everything went smooth. Dr Desai is very professional and here work definitely shows it. I highly recommend this place for getting any dental work done! you will not be disappointed.

After relocating back to the area my wife and I were looking for a new dentist. After asking around we were referred to Luminous Smiles by a trusted friend. After our first visit we knew we had found our new dentist! Dr. Desai and her staff are the best! They make you feel welcome and at ease from the moment you walk in the door. Dr. Desai treats your teeth like they were her own and has proven to be very knowledgeable in her field. Their office has all the newest technology and has a very modern feel while still making you feel comfortable. I know my wife and I will be patients of hers and her wonderful staff for many years to come!

Katie K. from Sorrento, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Desai is literally the best dentist I have ever had. I have suffered with teeth issues my whole life including missing two adult upper teeth creating large gaps. She took the time to show me videos and photos to explain why and what she needed to do to correct. She is honest, kind, and knows more about my personal life than any other dentist because she cares and asks questions to get to know me. My two kids have always hated the dentist but after my pleasant experience with Dr Desai I decided to bring them in. I warned her that they will likely cry but she was so excited to meet them anyways. Sure enough, they didn’t cry once and my daughter officially calls her the “world’s best dentist”. As for her craft, I have never had such a beautiful smile. She aims for perfection and takes her time which I appreciate. I recently moved to Florida but will be traveling to CA each year just to see her again for visits because she’s that great! High got recommend her for adults AND kids!

Nathan H. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


So true story…I first met Dr Desai almost 2 years ago at her primary residence. I’m not an anxious or nervous person but going to the dentist or doctor definitely makes me freak out. Not only was Dr Desai the the coolest friendliest and down to earth dentist I’ve ever been to, but her work and work ethic is impeccable. She’s not an old school kind of dentist which is awesome because she’s always on top of the new best techniques, way of doing things, brands, etc…long story short, I didn’t go back as scheduled and I really needed some more work as it was starting to cause discomfort and I go to the old spot and they tell me she doesn’t work there anymore. W out hearing anymore I immediately I asked ‘oh did she get her own spot?’ They said ‘YES’ and If u get to know her you will know why it didn’t surprise me to hear that. I ended up finding her OWN spot and whether its conversation or a cold towel on your forehead she will always be there for u. The new facility is amazing and I can even watch TV coming from the cowlings at the new spot. In end u can’t convince me to go to any other dentist. I’m glad I found her.

E. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always HATED going to the dentist. Its almost like a phobia. Going to Dr. Desai is my new GO TO dentist and I won’t be scared anymore. The experience was different than any other dentist office I’ve been to.  First off, the office staff is completely competent and professional.  Lisa was so helpful in walking me through all the insurance stuff, explaining the different options I have, etc.  The office is super clean and NEW.  Dr. Desai is informed in all the up to date technology. She doesn’t push it on you, but gives you her opinion and advises whether she thinks its good for you or not. Dr. Desai recommended Invasalign for me and I’m SO glad she did.  I also double checked to ensure that the price quoted was market value and it indeed was. You can tell she’s experienced, knows what she’s talking about and is genuine on whether it will be good for you or not.  If you’ve ever been hesitant about going to a dentist…please go see Dr. Desai. She will def put your fears at ease.

I’ve been going to Dr. Desai for a while now, and every time she’s done a procedure on my teeth, it has come out perfectly. With her work, I never have to worry about whether it’s going to be pretty good or good enough. It’s always great. She is very thorough in explaining what the issue is, how she’s going to treat it, and then making sure everything is in place and feeling like it should once she’s finished. She really makes an effort to make sure I’m comfortable and as pain free as possible during a procedure. If you’ve ever left a dentist that you weren’t totally satisfied with, you know what a relief it is to find one you don’t have to worry about visiting. Dr. Desai is an awesome dentist, and I highly recommend her.

I was a bit nervous bringing in my 2 year old son for his first dental appointment. I have tried brushing his teeth at home but he never wants to open his mouth. My son had never met Dr. Dimple Desai but they instantly had a great connection. My son was so happy to watch TV while he was getting his teeth cleaned. Dr. Dimple Desai was so gentle but yet assertive that my son enjoyed his first dental appointment. I highly recommend Dr. Dimple for your entire family. She is very meticulous and does top notch dentistry.

Greg I. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Maybe it’s just my vibe but the hardest part about visiting Doc Desai is the insatiable desire to carry an incredible conversation with her. Unfortunately, her hands are in your mouth 95% of the time and so you’re basically stuck on mute. Regardless, her casual demeanor, sophisticated intelligence, congenial disposition, and sincere empathy is worn on her white sleeves. There should be a lounge in reception for post-appointment drinks!  Not surprised at all that she’s accomplished the ’40 under 40′ for her profession. There isn’t tech in that office over two years of age. The staff is superb (Lisa calls and follows up on insurance claims, reaches out without prompt to better fit my schedule, etc.) The office is intensely covid-safe. All the hygienists are fast, professional, courteous. In addition to cleanings, I had Invisalign treatments done there too. My face is just… superb now. Thanks Luminous Smiles keep on rockin’.

I have never liked dentists, I get anxiety thinking about it and it’s even worse when I actually have to go in and see one. Because of this, I’ve been extremely picky when it comes to choosing a dentist. Before signing up for my dental insurance, I looked around for the best dentist in Newport Beach and then looked at their websites, social media pages, and most importantly, their credentials. The only dentist that I found in a 50 mile radius that had amazing reviews, a modern office and graduated from a prestigious school was DR. Desai. Upon walking into the office, I was immediately impressed with the decore, you could tell that a lot of time and energy was spent to give the place the vibe it does. I immediately felt st home. The check in process was a breeze (they use an iPad for this and paperwork). When I was called back I was immediately greeted by Dr Desai. She was warm and welcoming which is a feeling I’ve never had from a Dentist. I was seated and talked to like a human being. She wanted to know about me before my teeth. Once we were done the assistant took my X-rays and did a fantastic job being gently. He took his time, was energetic, and you could tell he truly loved his job and where he worked. Upon the x rays being completed Dr Desai and I discussed next steps. The only feedback I have is to make sure you have a lot of time the first appointment. I had set aside two 1/2 hours and was still in a rush to get out of there. The treatment plan was rushed through because I had a doctor appointment I needed to go through. I also don’t love that they want you to sign off on a treatment plan before you can take time to absorb it and ask to changes to the plan on timeline etc. then again this part was rushed so maybe it’s done differently had I had more time. I look forward to coming back and having Dr Desai perform work to get my teeth to where I want them to be.

I recently broke a veneer (front tooth- from another dentist) and was worried about getting it matched by someone else. Dr. Desai matched it perfectly and the experience was the best I’ve had with any dentist. She is a perfectionist and also kept checking in to be sure I was comfortable. Her office staff was friendly and efficient and the decor was exquisite:). Highly recommend!!

Lexie M. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I usually do not write review but I thought this place was worth writing one. As soon as you walk into the office you are greeted and welcomed, the overall aesthetic of the place is modern. I went in and the Dental Assistant Karen took care of my X rays. She worked fast and efficient which I liked. Dr Desai is such an amazing person and dentist of course. She makes sure to go over any concerns and questions one may have. The procedure was fast and painless. From start to finish everything was great!

Shyam Jani (Source: Google)


Having been to many dentists over the past several years, I can say without hesitation that Dr. Desai and her team stand out far above the rest. Dr. Desai is incredibly knowledgeable and skillful, especially her attention to detail. She firmly believes in quality work and will do whatever it takes to deliver a perfect end result. She went above and beyond for both me and my wife — seriously, I’m still amazed at what she was able to do with our smiles. She took the time to explain every aspect of the dental procedure, making sure all my questions were addressed. She worked efficiently but thoroughly, and I didn’t feel a thing the entire time. And she followed up with me multiple times over the next several days! She truly cared about how I was doing. Seriously, if a perfect dentist exists out there, it is definitely Dr. Desai. If you are looking for a pain-free, smooth, and professional dental experience with results that will last you a lifetime, look no further.

Dr. Desai is one of THE BEST DENTISTS in town! I explored many dentists, opinions and options to help me with my smile makeover. She is not overly radical and loves to save enamel. I would call her the enamel queen! She does not want to over prepare my teeth to make them into small veneers. Her knowledge, science background on teeth and her extensive education to stay up to date clearly shows! She walks you through her recommendation and why. She uses all up to date products and knows WHY the products are legit to use for longevity of my teeth. Her eyes for for a new smile is impeccable. My teeth were minimally prepared and bonded with thin gorgeous veneers wherever needed and the rest were bonded with composite. She has amazing hand skills and a true artist. Chose your Dentist wisely, I did and and I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Desai!!

Chris H. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an issue with a crown that was a few years old and I was referred by a close friend to Dr. Desai. Being that the office just opened, it was obviously spotless but it was also the nicest dentist office I have ever been in. You can tell that they really care about a patient’s first impression. Overall, Jennifer and Dr. Desai were extremely friendly and made sure that I understood everything that was happening. Even with a new crown and some minor gum surgery, the most challenging part of my visit was filling out the paperwork. My son also went in for a cleaning and the overhead TV really helped him be calm during his appointment.

Bree H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you’re in the need a great dentist, then look no further! My family and I have been seeing Dr. Desaj for a couple of years now. My son, then 4, hated going to the Dentist until he start seeing Dr. Desai. She has the best bedside manner, she always informs my son of her next steps which makes it easier for him.  Plus he gets to watch his favorite show on the tv while getting his teeth cleaned. Prior to coming to see her, I embarrassing hadn’t been to the dentist is years. Last year, I had to have her replace a partial porcelain filling. I had to receive multiple shots but Dr. Desai was so gentle that all I could feel was a little pinch. I respect her, trust her and know she is giving us and providing us the best dental care. Plus her office is beyond cute and her staff is knowledgeable and kind.

Nancy G. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I walked into Luminous Smiles because they were advertising a Grand Opening $99. Teeth whitening special. Dr Desai and her staff are friendly and welcoming. Since it’d been three months since I’d had my teeth cleaned she recommended I get them cleaned prior to the procedure for better results. I’m glad I did. Dr Desai assured me she’d give a great cleaning as she had been a dental hygienist for 7 years, deciding to become a dentist and working her way through school. Her cleaning was excellent. I’m glad she pointed out I’m brushing too hard. Dr Desai showed me how to more effectively brush to avoid further gum loss and she showed me on my arm how I’ll periodically feel my teeth have a 10 second reaction to the whitening procedure. Glad she did as the few times I’ve felt it I was prepared. My teeth look great!

Our previous family dentist was my close friend but after he moved out of the country, we really struggled to find a new dentist, we tried a couple dentists but only ended up with disappointments, my 9-year-old daughter had a very bad experience with one of them, she was traumatized to go to dentist again until we found Dr. Desai. Dr. Desai is such a wonderful dentist who knows and wants only the best for you and your family, my daughter loves Dr. Desai, it was such a big relief that I finally found the right dentist for our family, especially for my young child, and not only is Dr. Desai awesome but so is her staff! Lisa is extremely patient and helpful, she always goes over everything in detail and answer every insurance questions for me, and the assistants are also very kind and welcoming! I highly recommend Dr. Desai and her team!

Jessica J. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in to Luminous Smiles beacause a friend of mine had referred me and kept bugging me to get into the dentist( mostly because I have had bad experiences) I am so glad I came in. Let’s start with the office. It’s beautiful! And is up to date with all the cool technology for dentistry. And the staff is great! Manny was so helpful in the front office and Jennifer her assistant is sweet and gental. And Dr.Desai well she is amazing!!! She used an infra oral camara and got some pics of my teeth, and we talked about what the game plan is going to be for the work I need done. For my weekend away and for a little added sparkle to my smile I had a gem added to my canine tooth, and I absolutely love it!!!.
