The staff here at M Dental are very welcoming! I came here for an ortho consultation, and I was very well informed by Dr. Paul Kim about my facial anatomy and the various types of treatment that were offered to correct my problem. I was actually quite fascinated to learn about how braces worked too. I felt comfortable with myself and wasn’t pressured or embarrassed about options to choose for my orthodontic treatment. On the same day of the scheduled consultation, the process was very enjoyable and quick. They were able to get in paperwork, X-rays, and even dental cleaning for me, and Dr. Kim and Amy fit on my braces for me. I’m looking forward to future appointments with the staff over at M Dental and I’m pretty excited. :]

M Dental is hands-down the best dental practice I’ve ever been to. I have EXTREME anxiety about the dentist, even just cleanings, and when I moved to the Fullerton area about 3 years ago and was looking for a new dentist, Dr. Paul very patiently answered all of my questions. I’m sure I drove him absolutely nuts, but he was incredibly empathetic as was the entire office staff. I’ve seen them for several cleanings as well as a crown replacement and a deep cleaning, and all of my experiences there have been wonderful. I also find them to be very honest about the dental work you actually need done. Highly recommended.

I was looking for a place that did both dental and orthodontist service in one place and found M Dental Group. I made an appt for my son and I. When I went in for my appt, the place was very clean and they had social distancing in place and took your temperature. I was comfortable. The staff was very friendly and made me feel at ease and kept making sure I was okay. I had to go through dental and orthodontics that day and it was the most comfortable I’ve been at any dentist. During my son’s appt today, I can tell he was comfortable as well and not scared. I will be coming here for all future dental needs. They also work with you financially as well to make sure what you need done is affordable. I recommend this place if you’re looking for a dentist or orthodontist that is professional and very hygienic.

I’ve been seeing M Braces for about 9 months now. I came in for a consultation about braces and ended up getting them. I was so hesitant about getting braces because of the way I’d look but I ended up loving them! I choose the ceramic ones so I don’t have so much metal in my mouth and it definitely helped with the cosmetics side. I just had my 9 month check up and my smile is almost perfect. Dr. Kim and staff have been so helpful and patient with me when it came to questions and concerns about my braces. I’m almost done with my braces and so excited to see the end results!!

I’ve been with M Dental since 2017 and after five fillings, two wisdom tooth extractions, and more than ten cleaning/check ups, I’ve only been pleased with painless, organized, courteous, communicative, and professional service. At my first appointment, I did paperwork with reception, x-rays with a technician, check up with the dentist, cleaning with a hygienist, and financing with an employee, and the process across the board was smooth, and ever since then, I haven’t had any billing or waiting issues, haven’t been in discomfort and had my concerns quickly addressed, and I never dread a visit. I really appreciate being able to reliably take care of dental work with as much ease as I do here and I trust I’ll be in good hands going forward.

Jung K. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Beautiful dental office!!! Architectural landmark in the city of Anaheim. I am amazed how detail-oriented doctors are. I and my wife were very pleased with orthodontic consultation for my daughter. State-of-the-art facility and 3D x-ray machine could provide most comprehensive and accurate consultation. We have been to different orthodontic offices in the past, but MBRACES gave us totally different experience. Erin is the office manager and she gave us different options for our financial situation. I feel like they truely love their patients. I really appreciate all the staffs and I would like to recommend MBRACES to my neighbors.

Christian Z. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I REALLY REALLY don’t like going to the dentist. But I had a crack in my tooth, so I knew I should get it checked out. When I came to M Dental the process to get me checked out was awesome. BUT when they let me know that I had to get a root canal I FREAKED! The team walked me through the procedure and did a great job at calming my nerves, worries, and letting me know exactly what they would have to do. Dr.Paul did an AMAZING and painless root canal. Thank God! The only painful part that was very minimal was when they numbed my tooth. Seriously, I think going to a dentist as a kid I think traumatized me. The team at M Dental made this such an amazing experience that I can not wait to go back and finish up other things they recommended. I look forward now to going to the dentist!

I never been happier with a dentist. Dr. Paul is hands down one of the best dentist with best equipment. He is very thorough and extremely knowledgeable and I feel very confident recommending him. He has amazing staff and clean beautiful office with very comfortable parking. I will be bringing my children here too. THANK YOU DR. PAUL FOR BEING MY DENTIST.

I’ve searched for a while to find a good dentist in my area. I saw the reviews for M dental so decided to try them out. The dentist and staff are very professional and helpful. I had a root canal which is no fun but the dentist did an awesome job with very minimal pain. I definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a good dentist.

Alex R. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


his is the first time I have come to the dentist in years. The team here at M Dental Group took care of my family and I without any worry. They also gave very good consultations for braces as well as are very helpful and communicative when it is time for an appt or any work that needs to be taken care of. By far the best dental office I have ever been to.

Pika-Sus A. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Mbraces is actually the second place i go for ortho treatment.  I hated my first ortho spot (western dental) for various reasons.   I decided to leave and came to this spot from the reviews here and glad i did.   They have a nice staff here that greet you right when you walk in. I would always come out from western with pain after treatment for some reasom but here i dont.  Im not afraid to go to my appointments anymore knowing that these guys will treat me like they would to a family member (good care at a cheap price). Cant thanx then enough

I used to dread going to the dentist so much that I’d only go if I was in pain, but that changed when I started going to M Dental. The dentists there are gentle, ensure your comfort, and don’t waste your time, so I actually go regularly now. Not only are the facilities modern and clean, but everyone there is kind, helpful, and friendly- I even get a happy birthday text every year! I’ve been going there for a few years and they go above and beyond to make sure that my teeth are in excellent condition and that I’m satisfied with the results. I can’t stress enough how wonderful this place is. Check it out, you won’t regret it!

Joseph Y. from Northwest Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t recommend this place enough. I’ve been a patient here for about four years now and finally got my braces off. It took a while but if I had to do it again, I would definitely come back here. My smile was one of my biggest insecurities and I can finally smile again without any worries. The doctors here definitely know what they are doing. The staff here are all very nice and made me very comfortable. They are very good at sending reminders of your next appointment, which significantly helped with my scheduling. I definitely recommend this place to everyone!

I had an excellent experience with M Dental! M Dental feels like home! I haven’t been to the dentist in 3 years and have generally always had a bad experience, but M Dental evidently puts patient care as their number one priority. The front office, staff, and doctors are all very professional and tender to the patient’s needs and comfort. I love that M Dental does away from the stereotypical dental office appearance – dull, boring, and nerve-wrecking. It feels like you’re walking into an inviting, warm coffee shop to meet a friend. M Dental definitely puts the M in Modern. I love coming here and I always look forward to my next visits. You should definitely consider coming here for your next check up, I guarantee you, you will not be disappointed. Have a great day! 🙂

Hi I felt good and comfortable in M Dental Group, because everyone was nice, and assured that I get a close look at the dental work to be done on my teeth, with an x-ray that revealed some of the careful measures the doctor had to take to avoid coming in contact with some nerves in the gums, something exclusive of M Dental Care. I found this kind of care for their patients teeth to be more modern than other dental offices. I felt good after the treatment, for having my 2 of 4 impacted wisdom teeth removed from my mouth. Nonetheless there was some pain, but the reason why I write such a positive experience is to reflect on some of the relief I felt to know what was inside of my gums and how severe my dental case was when speaking of removing my wisdom teeth, specifically the ones near my jaw. At the time I realized I had more of a chance for things to come out better here than on the other dentist office, because I was never told that the treatment could hurt so much until I came here. M Dental Group had a solution to the bottom impacted teeth seemed reasonably possible at the time, even though the other place was not all that bad either, it is just that the latter (previous place) never told me how sensitive the nerve is on the wisdom teeth, and how only one of my bottom teeth should have been taken out, instead of the 2 they were telling me to have taken off the same day. I am due to go back later in December to have the other 2 impacted wisdom teeth removed, and thus far my gums don’t hurt, and I don’t have any pain. Well, both places were sound, but I feel M Dental Group is the smarter choice for being more informative, and because I would imagine people need a dentist who has a gentle approach to avoid any excessive opening of the mouth with the hands, since this is detrimental in the comfort of patients like kids, seniors, handicaps, etc. Alright, well that is all I have to say, and Thanks Alot M Dental Care!

HJ. C. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are searching for an orthodontist, search no more! Dr. Kim is one of the most patient and kind people I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, and his staff is just as 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. Kim spent a lot of time explaining everything I asked of him (and I ask A LOT of questions!). My teeth look awesome and I am ecstatic with the results! I would not hesitate to recommend Dr. Kim and his team to anyone and everyone looking to improve their smile. You will be treated like a member of the family and not just another paycheck. I felt like they truly cared about me as an individual and I will definitely be bringing my kids back when they are ready for braces. Thank you guys so much and keep up the good work!!!!!

Jessica H. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Iv been a patient with M Dental Group for years now. Each and every visit, i feel welcomed and every does their job professionally. I’m very satisfied with all the service M dental group has provided. Both doctors are super friendly and professional. Staffs are very friendly as well. The facility is neat and is very organized. I’m getting my braces here and Im very satisfied. I definitely recommend M dental group!!

Brittany D. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started coming her in 2012 and even though I moved to San Diego, I make the drive to see Dr. Paul. I’m a baby when it comes to getting shots of any kind, but I don’t even feel it when Dr. Paul has to use a numbing agent! He recently replaced a crown I had done at a previous dentist and what a difference! I never noticed that my old crown was too high for my bite. I was always biting on the crown first and over the years I just got used to the uncomfortable feeling (mostly because I hated going to the dentist for anything other than a cleaning). After Dr. Paul replaced the crown I’ve had significantly LESS headaches and it looks beautiful! You’d never know it was crown just by looking in my mouth. Not only will you receive great care from the dentists at this office, but you’ll receive great customer service from the staff. Once I walk in the door I’m immediately greeted (by name because I’ve been going to this office for a while). They treat you like family which is a rare quality in this day and age. THANK YOU M DENTAL!

Since the first day of visiting this dental group, it has been a blessing for me to have a dentist like Dr. Kim. The staffs here are caring patients as they walk into the office. During this Covid-19 time especially, they put their all effort to maintain a safe environment in order to protect patients and their staffs. I was guided to sit 6 ft apart and led to a separate chair when I was treated. Most staffs here are bilingual, so don’t worry about the language barrier. I’m sure you don’t want to have any misunderstanding between you and a doctor. Here, they answer all your questions kindly. Jenny, the manager is very friendly. Before they intervene any treatment, they always explain what they are going to do. I appreciate their thoughtfulness.

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

I had many bad experiences at the dentist when I was a child because I had so many cavities and weak enamel. But when I switched to this office in 2015 I was so happy I did. I have had both Dr Paul and Dr Janet do orthodontic work on my teeth and I enjoyed working with both of them and appreciate how the appearance of my smile has evolved! Also, everytime I go in for a cleaning or routine visit the front office always welcomes me. All the hygienists that I’ve had work on my teeth are all so sweet. I’ve never had a bad experience, they always try to make me feel comfortable everytime and I highly recommend them to anyone who wants a healthy, shining smile!

Nanci V. from Northwest Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is awesome!!! I walked in very sadden by the way my teeth looked when I smiled and these group of people helped me regain the confidence  of smiling again and making me feel myself! They helped me with monthly payments that fit my budget, also great with reminding on your next appointments! All my kids come here they all braces I highly highly recommend this dental office for who ever is looking for an amazing smile! Stop by(:

I came here after I had a dislocation of one of my front teeth with no idea about how I could fix my situation. Other dentists that I had consulted left me feeling helpless with no good solution to fixing my smile. It was obvious from the information I was receiving from this office that they had my best interests at heart. Dr. Kim has made my smile perfect, better than it has ever been, while entirely retaining my own natural tooth that had suffered severe trauma. Thank you Dr. Kim!!

Lauren K. (Source: Google)


Dr. Kim is the BEST dentist ever. I have an extreme anxiety about dental treatment but after experiencing M dental Group, I feel a lot more comfortable now. He explains step by step what I’m doing and why I need the treatment and gives all the options possible. I can truly feel how much he cares about his patient. Also, the facility is so beautiful, clean and modern and all staffs are nice and friendly. I have experienced so many dentist but Dr. Kim is the BEST! I’m so glad I met Dr. Kim and he saved my life. I highly recommend M dental group to anyone who needs dental care!

Alexa D. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


After going to several consultations (including my regular dental office!) I decided to start my braces at M Dental. I had braces when I was a teenager, but teeth had started to shift as I got older. Reasons I chose to go here: – Everyone at this office is so sweet and friendly! They were able to get me a consultation appointment very quickly. – The doctor went over several options (Invisalign, traditional braces, braces with accessories) and explained each process in detail. I also felt like he took his time to examine my teeth which I didn’t feel in most other consultations. – They have all prices up front!! It’s on a paper with set prices depending on which treatments are available to you so you aren’t stuck with only 1 treatment choice. This was one of my biggest reasons for choosing this office. Most other offices just come up with a price on the spot and nothing is broken down. – It’s so clean and modern, especially in times like now with COVID. You are required to sign a wellness form and temperature check every time you come in. Bonus: I had to rush the initial appointment to get the braces installed and everyone knew I had to be out of the office at a certain time. How amazing that they actually cared about my time restraint. As a second round of braces, I’m so happy I chose this office. Good luck to all starting their braces journey, you won’t be disappointed here!

It’s been almost 3 years and M Dental has always been the best! I never like going to the dentist. So I definitely dreaded looking for a second opinion after my old family dentist suggested I take out both my front teeth and get implants. He told me getting braces would make them fall out anyways. It was horrible. Needless to say, it was a definite “NOPE!” My friend recommended M Dental, and everyone at M Dental was so helpful, understanding and accommodating and very patient. It was definitely a wonderful experience. The facility’s are all bright and clean. And they have updated equipment and tools. The staff are all lovely, and they explain every procedure in detail step by step. I’m never afraid to ask questions when I don’t understand something. They helped me with my ortho and wisdom teeth extractions. (This is my second ortho procedures because my old dentist didn’t do it right). I trust them so much that I brought my mom to have her root canal here. If you want experienced professionals in a familial atmosphere, I recommend anyone looking for a dentist to give M Dental a try!!

Thomas N.  from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is great. Totally recommend if you’re in the area. Got my cleaning today from Jane and she not only did a great job, but also made sure her work was superb. I had a very pleasant experience and did not feel rushed out the door. – friendly knowledgeable staff – great customer service – clean and updated office, furniture, and equipment – clean bathroom – kid friendly Thank you Jane & M Dental!!!

Grace Y. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve wanted braces for a very long time but unfortunately haven’t been able to find an orthodontist that I liked and was honest about the work I really needed. I first came to M Dental Group because one of my crowns fell out. They were able to see me and fix the issue on the same day. I did not know thay Dr. Kim does and just figured why not set up a consultation for the next time I’m here. I have to say that I am so happy with my experience. Dr Kim was straight forward and answered all my questions thoroughly. The front staff was super nice and clear with explaining the financial plan in the event I decided to go forward with having braces done there. I signed the paperwork same day AND they even had time to do all my xrays and treatments I’m really excited for what’s to come in my dental journey here at M Dental Group. I will definitely be updating my reviews on how awesome this place is! 🙂

There are absolutely no words to describe how awesome Dr. Kim is! I am so thankful to have been introduced to this Mental Group! He saved my root cannel that had been infected because of another dentist in Germany and he really made my teeth like new and clean! I would definitely recommend all my friends and family to go to his dentist because he is a very intelligent, friendly, honest and precise person! You won’t find this combination anywhere else! THANK YOU SO MUCH DR. Kim for everything!

Just had a cleaning done this past weekend. And this is going to sound weird, but I actually enjoyed it. It was very thorough and gentle, which hasn’t ways been the case for me at prior dental visits. Ladies in the front were very sweet. Explained everything in great detail. The office was spotless! Great ambiance. When I checked in, felt like I was at a fancy boutique hotel! Met the doctor- Dr. Kim- who was very nice and provided a status on every one of my teeth! (Since this was my first time visit). He also used a pretty cool mini camera that took pictures of my teeth, from behind/below my teeth! It was a trip, actually, to see those photos. Very cool indeed! All in all, I had a great experience. Check in was quick. Office was clean. People were nice. Procedure was smooth. Can’t ask for more! Esp from a dental office.

I went M dental group for my son’s cavities and braces. The kid’s doctor is so friendly and they recently opened places just for kids. All the room have tv with animations for kids to be less nervous. My son was screaming and crying during the cavity treatment..but they were so calm and did the best job. I an happy with the braces, too. Everyone working at m dental is so nice friendly. I highly recommend this place.

I will recommend M Dental to anybody who is looking for dental or orthodontal services. I had braces in the past with my old family dentist, but after suffering some trauma to my mouth and not wearing my retainer my teeth began shifting back. I had a gap that started to appear between my front teeth. M Dental made me some clear aligners and after wearing for just a couple weeks the gaps already closed! I am very happy with them, and I will continue to see them for all my dental needs

Scott M. from Pomona, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist. I don’t like things in my mouth, you’re poked and prodded… just not a fun experience in general. But it’s a necessary evil – I get it. So, while I’m not going to say I enjoy going to M Dental (because it’s still going to the dentist)… I will say they’re the best dentist office I’ve found and have no plans on going anywhere else. I’ve been going to M Dental for several years now (maybe 4?). They really want what’s best for your teeth and it shows. If cost is ever a consideration, they’ll work with you to find a way to make it work. They’re pretty flexible with schedules as well. The place is super clean and although I don’t know the specifics, they seem to be on top of the latest and greatest innovations in dental work. I can be a little bit of a baby when it comes to pain – touch a wrong area and my whole body jumps and I’m practically shoving them away. They’re always super sensitive to that and go out of their way to make sure I don’t feel any discomfort. One thing that really sealed the deal for me was when I had an issue being taken care of on a Friday afternoon and I showed hesitation about making it through the weekend. Without asking Dr. Kim gave me his number in case an issue came up over the weekend when they weren’t open. That really stood out to me as I know not all dentists would do that. Anyhow I can’t recommend them enough. I moved out of the Fullerton area 2 years ago to Pomona and I still make the trek back as I don’t want to change dentists.

After moving to M Dental, I actually look forward to going to the dentist! I got braces here over the summer, but I’m in Boston for school most of the time so Dr. Kim and his staff have been very good with working around my schedule. Every visit has been an extremely pleasant one! I’ve had little to no pain after every visit, and that’s including braces tightening and a wisdom tooth extraction. The facility is clean and well-maintained. Everybody in the office is super friendly and knows what they’re talking about. Plus, they give you a neat travel kit with a toothbrush, toothpaste, floss, mouthwash, etc. I always tell my parents and all my friends how much I love my dentist and I really mean it!

Hands down the best dentist I’ve ever met. My husband has some of the most challenging dental issues to be treated, mainly due to the poor treatment done by our previous dentist, which has been going on for the last 2 years. My 37 yr old husband almost lost two molar teeth because of the malpractice and Dr. Paul Kim literally cleaned up the “whole mess” and saved my husband’s molars. A big lesson learned – when choosing a dentist, I think everyone should be very careful and have the same degree of seriousness and effort to find the best as you would do when looking for any other medical doctors for any illness. For me and my family, I want a dentist who really knows what he’s doing. Availability is also important. If he is friendly with a great people skill, that is a plus. Dr. Kim and his staff at M dental, are not only on top of things when it comes to dental treatment, but they are also very professional, accommodating, and friendly. Apart from my husband’s extensive experience with Dr. Kim in getting treated on his cavity on molars, I myself received orthodontic treatment from Dr. Kim, which took about 20 months and I was very happy with the result. Particularly, I was impressed by Dr. Lee’s passion and professionalism – he really goes above and beyond to get the job done and he really cares about his patients. Our 3 yr old son also receives dental care from Dr. Kim. Although M dental is not a specialty dental clinic for kids, their clinic environment is very warm and welcoming. Each treatment room has a flat screen monitor with a variety of programs including kids programs. Our son recently had an accident at his school while playing with his classmates and his two front teeth were almost knocked out by a hula hoop. When we contacted Dr. Kim’s clinic after picking up our son at school, he asked us to bring him in though he knew that we were going to arrive after his office hour. His staff waited for us after the closing hour and again, our son’s babyteeth were saved. It was another pleasant experience and I felt that Dr. Lee was treating my son as if he were treating his child. Some of the key points regarding Dr. Kim’s practice, which were demonstrated consistently on all of our cares are as follows: – His treatment approach is just right – his skills are top notch and he does an exceptional job, but never too aggressive. – He has a great bedside manner. Caring, passionate about his profession, and friendly. – If you aren’t so good with tolerating pain, he makes sure that you don’t feel pain during the treatment. – If you need to see a dentist on weekends, his clinic is open every other Saturday. Within the past 3+ years of coming to M Dental, we had to wait long(more than 25 min.) few times. I guess that shows this place is a popular choice by a lot of people. Try to schedule your appointment on days that they’re less busy. The front desk staff are very accommodating.

After receiving his Doctorate of Dental Surgery from the University of Southern California, Dr. Kim was appointed to the faculty at the USC School of Dentistry. His extensive experience and knowledge have lead him to teach in the Oral Surgery, Fixed Prosthodontics, Operative Dentistry, Diagnosis and Treatment Planning Departments at USC.
