Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Maruko is an amazing orthodontist! I needed an orthodontist who could move my teeth and in a short period of time. I went to a different orthodontist before who could not get the job done and switched to Dr. Maruko. She finished moving my teeth in one year. I absolutely love my smile and am so grateful for her beautiful work! She is a great orthodontist who highly cares about her patients and will give you the smile you have dreamed of.

Our family LOVES Dr Maruko and her expert team and we have been patients for over 10 years! Both my son and daughter have been under her care for several years.  My daughter who was born with a significant underbite is about to undergo jaw surgery via our Kaiser plan however it has been Dr. Maruko who has successfully prepared her for this procedure and moment for several years now as we continued with her expert orthodontic care and waited for my daughter’s facial bone structure to mature.  Maruko served as a liaison between our dentists and the oral maxillofacial surgeon team and so I recommend her wholeheartedly!As for myself, she also assisted me with adult orthodontic care and have also been very pleased with the results. Can’t sing enough praises about Maruko Orthodontics!!

Having Dr. Maruko as my orthodontist was not only enjoyable but also inspirational! I always looked forward to my appointments because she and the staff are so welcoming and the way she runs her office is absolutely fun. The way she involves and her patients with her photography, social media, and events demonstrate how much she cares for her patients and makes them feel important to her. In fact, it is because of Dr. Maruko that I decided to pursue dentistry as a career in the hopes that I can interact with my future patients the same engaging way she does. I am currently in my first year of dental school and I couldn’t have made it without her influence! I am happy with the results from my braces as well. My smile is just as great as all the other dental students’s and I have Dr. Maruko to thank for that!

Dr. Maruko is a wonderful Orthodontist.  I was very satisfied with my orthodontic treatment in 2000 when I had my braces put on.  I was so impressed that both of my daughters have started treatment with her.  One of my daughters has a very specialized treatment plan including a palatal expander and Phase I braces because of her crowding on the bottom and top.  I had so many questions and fears, she was able to answer them all and made me feel very educated in all of our options and decisions.   Her office is beautiful and you really get the feeling she cares about her patients and their comfort.  My girls love seeing all of the familiar faces of their friends posted on the walls as well as all of the fun programs and games she has running all of the time (the Butterflies are my favorite!!). Checking in and out is super easy and efficient.  The digital X-rays and sterilization techniques are high quality and state of the art.  Her staff has been wonderful in reviewing hygiene instructions, making sure that my girls understand how to take care of their teeth while they have their braces on.  They make sure all of our questions are answered before we leave. I feel very comfortable with Dr. Maruko and her staff treating my girls while I enjoy some reading time up front.  My little one loves to watch the cartoons and use the coloring sets they make available.  I definitely recommend Dr. Maruko if you want the best treatment for yourself and for your children.

I had Invisalign treatment from Dr. Maruko as a high schooler and returned in my late 20s for updated retainers. Dr. Maruko’s office always felt clean and welcoming. The “check-in” logistics were impressive, especially when compared to other dentist and doctor’s offices that make you wait more than 20 minutes even if you have an appointments. With Dr. Maruko’s office, it was less than 5 minutes in ALL my visits. Dr. Maruko and her staff are extremely friendly and I specifically appreciate how they lay out all your options before proceeding. Although orthodontic prices in general may be high, all the treatments and procedures are done with the highest quality and care and I can honestly say that my experience here was all-around fantastic when it comes to customer care, promptness of service, and quality.

Danise O. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I could not be more pleased with Dr. Maruko and her thoughtful caring staff! My daughter’s teeth look great! I searched for the right orthodontist for over a year. I not only asked lots of questions but looked at the smiles of clients before asking for a referral. Dr. Maruko does an amazing job, has great credentials and is such a sweet person. She really makes us feel welcome and comfortable. I wanted my daughter to have a beautiful smile because it is so important in building self-confidence.  I was worried about her over bite. With Dr. Maruko’s skill she’s made amazing progress in just one year and I can’t wait for my turn! I know I made the right choice, have you?

Diana P. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maruko and her Staff are absolutely amazing to work with. They are courteous and Professional. I appreciate their commitment to time and honoring appointments. They offer a friendly reminder via text and email. This really helped as life can get busy for us all’s They provide incentives for patients to be on top of their duties. The office is always clean, lively and decorative with themes. My two daughters began their journey together and one of them just got them off. They both wanted braces and looked forward to their appts (we were lucky). Erica was always super kind and Profession with our questions and inquires. We will miss you all. Thank you for making the experience a great one for our daughters.

Alec K. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been with Dr. Maruko for a long time and just got my braces off a couple weeks ago. I needed to have jaw surgery last year, so the year before that I got braces put on. Now, being a year after the surgery, I got them off and I love my smile! And now, I feel better about myself. Everyone at the office has always treated me well. I’ve never once had a bad experience. They’re all friendly there! Now, I have a clear retainer that I think I’ll be wearing for a year or so… not sure. And yes Dr. Maruko… I’ve been wearing it all the time. XD My end result is great! Thanks to the work they did on me, I actually like smiling now! Once again, thanks Dr. Maruko, Nancy, and the rest of the staff at the office for everything! See ya guys soon!

Jen L. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Maruko has been very supportive of our son and provided a great experience. Her approach was much less invasive than other consultations we received and the results have been fantastic. His jaw alignment and teeth look great. Both Dr Maruko and her really awesome staff have been patient with our son and very encouraging. I would recommend her to friends and family. Another reviewer noted that it isn’t a ‘warm’ practice–our experience has been that Dr Maruko and her staff are very professional, care about their patients and are experts at what they do. They also have a great kid-friendly facility that is helpful for waiting siblings.

Melissa T. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Maruko and her staff have been wonderful for our entire family.  In fact, I am just leaving now after getting a needed adjustment with a wire and they were happy to accommodate me.  I was referred by my dentist and now I can attest to the fact that the doctor is focused on quality and precision and I would recommend her to anyone!

Brian S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son has been getting his orthodontic work by Dr. Evelyn Maruko for the past couple of years and we’d recommend her office to everyone.  Not only is it great patient care but the office has a calming feel with bright walls and big sunflowers all over the walls.  Dr. Maruko is very personal with her caring attitude towards her patients, the parents budget, and the world as a whole.

McNeil from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have worked with Dr. Maruko and her staff for over 8 yrs., and from the moment I walked in to that office, I felt  welcome.  The office is clean and state of the art. The office staff is warm and very friendly. Dr. Maruko is professional and very caring of all her patients. She provides unmatched service and is meticulous with all her work. I get to see first hand all cases from start to finish, and believe me when I tell you, everyone’s final case is beautiful. I have recommended her to many family members and friends and all have been completely satisfied.

Adriana T. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maruko is a talented and a highly professional orthodontist.  She’s also very kind and compassionate and works well with kids and adults.  Her staff is friendly and extremely helpful.  My daughter loves to come to her ortho appointments and enjoys all the fun activities available in the waiting room. I highly recommend Dr. Maruko.

Melanie S. from New Smyrna Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


Both my children have seen Dr. Maruko and we really like her and her friendly office staff. There are always activities for the kids in the waiting room – the newest is this infinity bracelet representing infinite possibilities available to kids!  Very please with treatment plans and service to date.  Thank you!

Raza K. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Both my daughters see Dr. Maruko. She is a wonderful orthodontist. Very good at what she does. Takes time with her patients. Very easy to schedule an appointment. They do there very best to accommodate my daughter’s school schedule.  Erica at the front desk is very nice.

Michelle G. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been coming to Dr. Maruko for many years and absolutely love her and the staff. They are professional and do so much to make the kids comfortable and their experience enjoyable. The results are amazing as well.

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


Dr Maruko has been our orthodontist for both of our girls. She’s done a beautiful job with both of them and both their treatments were done within the estimated time.   I like how they always explain every step and are very professional. Also we never have to wait, they’re always on time. The staff is always friendly and professional, and Erica is great! We highly recommend Dr Maruko & Co

Nicole S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been clients of Dr. Maruko for over a year now and are very pleased with the service received on all levels. This practice is very kid-friendly and has great incentives and reward programs for the kids to earn rewards for being proactive and maintaining their dental health. The facility is always very inviting, and decorated with local art from office contests. Also, they have movies, gaming, and coloring for keeping the younger ones occupied. Coffee, tea, and water for refreshments!

Meghann B. from Anaheim Hills, Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Maruko when I was a teenager for braces, along with my 3 siblings. She was so wonderful, my teeth were PERFECT! If I was a better patient and listened to her directions to wear my retainers I wouldn’t have had to come back as a 31 year old adult to fix the teeth that had moved back out of place . I am so glad I decided to come back to Dr. Maruko. She remembered me and my family and always asks how everyone is doing. She was able to get me fitted for a retainer and a night guard for my grinding (which I didn’t even know I was doing ). My teeth are back to their wonderful perfect pearly white straight condition Dr. Maruko takes such pride in her work, she does everything possible to make her patients look amazing and everyone leaves with the nicest most beautiful smile!

Tracee J. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


As an adult over 40, I have always wanted to make adjustments to my smile/teeth and Dr. Maruko came highly recommended by my dentist. She and her staff explained every step of my ortho plan from the beginning to the end. Having braces is not an easy process but Dr. Maruko and her staff (Sage, Marsha, and Erica) were fantastic! I always enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere, music playing and staff singing.  Dr. Maruko is a perfectionist, the staff are well trained, and now that my braces are off, I am 110% excited about my results.  I would definitely recommend Dr. Maruko.  Thank you so much!!

Devon Mike M. from Castle Rock, CO (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maruko is a great orthodontist!  I took my daughter here when she was 11. Dr. Maruko was very nice and gentle and so was her staff. She explained the treatment very well. She is conservative in her approach and does great work! The practice itself is very friendly and family focused. I would highly recommend this practice. If you are in need of finding a good orthodontist, for kids or adults, don’t hesitate to call them.

Anastasia K. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maruko is a perfectionist and a very knowledgeable orthodontist.  Dr. Maruko treated my son in stages which was a long process, however, his teeth, bite, and profile are now perfection.  She knows what she is doing and won’t finish a case until she reaches perfection, unlike other orthodontists’ resulting in teeth moving back to original position shortly after completing treatment.  Dr. Maruko’s staff are friendly and helpful and the office is very kid friendly.  I highly recommend Dr. Maruko.

Lynn P. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maruko is doing a great job with my complex case. I had braces as a child, and am amazed how much treatments have advanced. My treatment should take a total of two years. I was quoted the same amount of time elsewhere. Dr. Maruko is very detailed oriented and she holds her staff to a high standard. She is a talented doctor who takes her profession seriously. I hesitated getting braces again as an adult, especially because I wear a night guard. Dr. Maruko made it possible for me to wear the night guard simultaneously. I’m looking forward to a wonderful result!

Eddy R. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing work by Dr Maruko. She is very professional, efficient and knowledgeable. I am an adult and I needed an orthodontist that would be able to move my teeth properly without damage and after very short years, I’m almost done! The office is very clean, the staff is very friendly and professional. I highly recommend Dr Maruko to anyone looking into getting braces that are affordable, receive excellent service and most of all, great results.

T. F. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Braces and Lasik are two of the best investments to make for yourself besides your education. We are happy with our children’s ortho progress and care at Dr. Maruko’s office. Erika at the front desk is patient and kind with the children and me too!  Dr. Maruko has some degree in Latin from Harvard on her wall!

Joy D. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maruko worked on my son’s teeth for 41/2 years and she’s now working on mine.  She’s always been enjoyable to work with and her staff are always pleasant, positive and very responsive.  She has had turnover but is always able to find a great staff to work with her.  She is a perfectionist which means timelines may need to be altered to arrive at the desired goal.  This happened with my son whose teeth relapsed shortly after his braces were removed.  No one could have predicted that but with patience, Dr. Maruko was able to correct it.  Needless to say, I’ve been happy with Dr. Maruko and her staff and would highly recommend her practice. One more thing….the appointments are scheduled efficiently so they are always on time.

Nicole M. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started orthodontic treatment with Dr.Maruko back in 1999. I had jaw surgery in the middle of treatment and she communicated well with the surgeon and I love my end results. I recently back in the office due to needing a new retainer and everyone is very pleasant. They even occupied my little ones with coloring books and crayons! I would recommend Dr.Maruko and actually I have, twice!

Michael M. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dear dr. Maruko, my name is Michael moroneso . I’m a former employee from 2005 and i’m currently in dental school. I thank you for all the education you provided and were great to work with. I recently lost my x-ray certificate in a move and was wondering if you had a copy or could tell me what school you sent me to, for I have forgotten. Thank you for all you have done and I can only hope I get to work with someone as talented as you again.

Adria K. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Supper clean and inviting place to be. The staff are awesome. They are very knowledgable and can explain things so that I agree I and even my 8 year old can understand. I found about this place through a trusted friend and she said all the kids at her kids school come here and are extremely happy with not only the service but the cost as well. I agree Maruko Orthodontics is about quality and perfection when it comes to your mouth and fortunately for us they are not the most expensive around.

Shakeel A. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our daughter has been seeing Dr Maruko for about a year, she is excellent, very polite and explains everything in detail . Our daughter who has always been afraid of going to the dentist does not have that fear any more after we started the treatment with Dr Maruko. The office staff is superb, the office manager is a true example of what the front office staff should be like in every business. We would recommend Dr Maruko to a family , friend or any one looking for an excellent experience.

Marci H. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter has been a patient for a few years. We  always have attentive and amazing interactions with Dr. Maruko and her staff. The office has fun contests, are polite and respond quickly to messages and questions.  My daughter feels comfortable and enjoys the environment.  I highly recommend Dr. Maruko and her team. Thanks for all that you do!
