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

John H. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very courteous the moment I walked in the door. I haven’t been to see a dentist in a while and was a little anxious…they made me feel comfortable and took care of all my dental needs. I was given proper care and had everything explained to me in a way I could understand. It’s a little far from where I live, but worth the drive. Lastly, I’d like to say that my hygienist, Christina was super cool. Her and everyone there were very friendly.

My 7 year old daughter had her permanent teeth beginning to sprout while her baby teeth were still intact and barely wiggling. By the advice of Dr. Michelsen, we went in immediately to get her two bottom teeth pulled. As it turned out, her permanent teeth were not doing their job of pushing up her baby teeth and her baby teeth roots were still intact. It would have probably been months until her baby teeth were wiggly enough to pull at home. Dr. Michelsen was very informative with the both of us as to why her teeth needed to be pulled. My daughter was nervous but after sitting in the chair and watching a favorite program her nerves were calmed. Dr. Michelsen was gentle and so sweet. Everything was taken care of promptly and my daughter walked out very happy and proud to have her first teeth out! Thank you Dr. Michelsen for your advice and getting us in so quickly! You are the best!!

Dr. Michelsen is a wonderful dentist. She and her entire office staff are very friendly and do incredible work. I had two chipped teeth and a gap in front that made me not want to smile or speak without covering my mouth. The doctor put on seven veneers, and they look absolutely amazing. For anyone who is self conscious about their smile, don’t wait! I cannot stress enough that this is the right place to go.

I give this dental office and dentist 5 stars

Dr. Michelsen is a wonderful dentist. Going to the dentist always makes me anxious but she explained everything she was doing and made sure I was comfortable. Her office staff is simply AWESOME!!! They were so helpful setting upcoming appointments and offering/informing me about their in-house insurance, which is a fabulous deal.

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


came in for a cleaning and X-rays for the first time. Susan who did my x-rays and my cleaning, did an excellent job. She was very gentle and efficient and explained all areas of concern. After the cleaning was over, Dr. Michelsen went over all areas involving my current condition of my teeth and what procedures to be done, by showing me the x-rays and photos of my teeth and gums. She was very personable and professional at the same time and detailed in her analysis. The entire staff was very friendly and accountable. I look forward to getting my teeth taken care of by Doctor Michelsen and her staff!

Ray G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to this dentist twice and I been treated with the best hospitality and great service from the staff and especially Dr Michelson they have made me feel so relax and comfortable with all the procedures they done I don’t like going to the dentist but this Dentist and office  really knows what they are doing I highly recommend this dentist if and when you need something done

Doctor Michelsen is one of the sweetest Dentists I know. And I know a lot being that I have a family all in the dental career field lol She explains everything to you, never comes off as pushy, and is very conservative by diagnosing the way she would with her own kids. When you find a doctor that treats you the way they would their own family, is when you know they are a keeper 🙂 Her staff is amazing, all super friendly and positive vibes all over! I love Penny and what she is accomplishing with her wonderful team. Definition of a dental family and dental home! Super excited to start my Invisalign here, I recommend everyone to go to this office

Amazing dentist and office staff! I was welcomed warmly and put at ease immediately. I had an emergency, and they were able to fit me in right way. It took awhile to get fixed up, but they worked tirelessly to get it all done. I was sent home with good instructions for after care and even received a follow up call from Dr. Michelsen to make sure I was dong well. I will use this office for all of my dental needs from now on. Highly recommend!!

Victoria E. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred here by my manager at work after telling her about my bad experience at my previous dentist. Once you walk in you get a great vibe already. Staff is super friendly and they always have a smile on their face. Gentle on cleaning and procedures and shows concerns to making you feel comfortable throughout your entire visit.

Michelle F. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let’s be honest, a trip to the dentist can be nerve-wrecking. That’s how I felt in the past, but after visiting Dr. Michelsen I now feel way more at ease. I called them a few weeks before to schedule an appointment for teeth whitening. The moment I arrived at the office, the staff were very friendly and welcoming. It was my first time there so they were nice enough to give me a mini tour around the office. Everything was organized, clean, and neat- definitely a good sign! They showed me to my room and informed me that Dr. Michelsen will inspect my teeth before starting the whitening process. When Dr. Michelsen walked into the room, she had a big smile on her face and introduced herself. She told me about the process, what to expect, and the aftercare for my shiny teeth. The 2 hour whitening process was painless and I pretty much didn’t want it to end. I was too comfortable sitting in the reclined chair with my headphones on, lights dimmed, and binge watching “YOU”… it was as if I was catching a film at the movie theater. I almost forgot I was at the dentist, except the occasional check up on my teeth every 20 minutes to monitor the whitening. Overall, Dr. Michelsen and her staff are amazing! They made me feel comfortable and reassured that I’m in good hands. I’ll be back for my next cleaning and whitening!

First time coming here and it was amazing. The experience here was like no other dentist, Communication was that it’s finest! I help you and suggest the best for you! Everyone is super friendly Will be coming here for my next follow ups Also I will be recommending my friends and family here ! thank you Leslie and the rest of the staff amazing work!

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


This place is the best. Let’s face it, no one genuinely “likes” having their teeth scraped or getting a crown but it’s necessary for your long term health. I get the impression that the ladies in the office totally get this and they do their best to make the best of this situation. I’m super busy due to work and they patiently work with me to get me scheduled. When I arrive, there are always smiles and a warm greeting. Now the equally important topic: the dental services. In one word: perfect. Seriously, I really liked The previous dentist for all the same reasons so convincing me to stay was no easy task but in the end, Dr. Michelson won me over. She is gentle and knows what she is doing and talks you through the steps to put my mind at ease. The technology in that office is also pretty amazing. I watched them 3-D print my crown and it was a PERFECT match. Seriously, if you need a competent, compassionate dentist, look no further.

Denise J. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really love all the women at Michelsen Dental, have been a patient here for many, many years and they just keep getting better. I’m not just a patient but I’m greeted as a friend. The staff and Dr. Michelson collaborate to give me the best service possible. Anyone who is contemplating using Dr. Michelson should do so without reserve!

Rajiv G. from Foothill Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just went to see Dr. Michelsen and her hygenist Susan.  I can’t say enough about Susan.  She was very kind and gentle.   She made me feel very comfortable throughout my deep cleaning.  She explained in detail everything she was doing and motivated me to take better care of my teeth. Thank you.

My son had oral surgery to remove his wisdom teeth. As always, the staff is friendly and helpful in scheduling the appointment, greeting you on arrival and making you comfortable. Dr Michelsen is skilled, gentle and caring. She is compassionate and always recommends the best course of treatment. Oral surgeon Dr Tran was exceptional in explaining the procedure, handling the procedure with skill and efficiency, and with instructions for after care. He is also very caring and called the next day to follow up. Whether your dental issues are minor or serious, I highly recommend Michelsen Dental for all your needs. I take my entire family and love their services.

Sue J. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Michelson is an amazing dentist.  I had an old crown that was cracked.  No temporary required…She made a new crown and I was out with no pain within 2 hours.   Just went after the office re-opened due to the COV-19 for my cleaning and check up.  No issues.  Staff is very helpful and always open to discussion on options…

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


Back at the dentist today and what a great experience. This office is the absolute best around. Lesley, Yanely, Liz and everyone I interact with on my visits are exceptional people who always make me feel welcome and appreciated. Today I met a new team member Robert and he’s just as great. I also had a deep cleaning today and got to meet the Hygienist Vanessa, which is what prompted me to leave this review. Vanessa is so good at her job and has an incredibly kind demeanor. She explained the way gums and bacteria interact in way that I’ve never really understood before. She did an amazing job with my cleaning and I honestly look forward to the next time. It feels great to care for your teeth and even better when you have a team of specialists that are on this level. It’s no wonder why Dr. Michelsen takes such pride in her practice and staff. This dentist office is stellar! And thank you Dr. Michelsen, you are the absolute best dentist around!

Roshan G. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been going to Dr. Michelsen since last 7 years from other offices in orange county to the current office in city of Orange. The first thing I liked the office that is super clean and very modern look, secondly her staff is genuinely nice and very sweet. When you meet Dr. Michelsen she is even super nice. She meets you with smile on her face. I normally go there for regular cleaning, deep cleaning and minor dental issues. Once I went there for major root canal surgery and tooth extraction where I was even more impressed and very satisfied. Looks like to me she is very intelligent, sharp and very careful dentist for her younger and aged patients. She also follow up regularly.

Matthew A. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dentist. I had like 15 cavities and got them all filled here. Did one side of my mouth in a day and I am going back to do the other side tomorrow. Super friendly receptionist and staff. They let me watch Netflix on their TV because dentists can give me anxiety sometimes, and Dr. Michelsen herself even paid for a Lyft for me to get home, as I didn’t have any way to get back. Being a college student it’s easy to lose grip on dental hygiene, but I’m hoping to move forward and get myself fixed up with the help of my new dentist. Absolutely great place.

Esther M. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here to get a normal cleaning, re-fill my fillings, and to have my wisdom teeth extracted. The first impression is of the clerical employees and both are very kind. Dr. Michelsen replaced my fillings and she was very gentle/personable. She also made a great effort to make my teeth bite exactly how it was before which I GREATLY appreciated. My wisdom teeth extraction was done my Dr. Tram. I honestly don’t know what it should feel like BUT I do know that my roots were hooked and close to nerves due to waiting too long to pull them (I am 27) yet everything went very well. Dr. Michelsen did follow up and she was extremely patient and informative. I freaked out over what I thought was an infection and, same day, she checked out my gums and explained the healing process of new gum tissue. Her reassurance definitely eased my mind. Overall, I really appreciate this place and would recommend it to anyone that gets freaked out over a trip to the dentist.

I am so happy and impressed with this office. I had a deep cleaning and Eddie was so gentle and friendly while he was working on me. Dr Michelsen was so amazing, explained what I needed in detail and was so gentle. I had my teeth whitened and Maria the assistant was wonderful. She explained everything to me in detail. The results are amazing. I love my new smile. My next move is to straighten my teeth with clear correct. I finally found my dental office. Thank you Dr. and wonderful staff.

Dr Michelson has the ultimate chair-side manner. It’s easy to see that she is intelligent and very knowledgeable about her dentistry, but she is also gentle and considerate of time and my needs as a patient. The staff is efficient, knows and uses modern tools and technology, and prices and insurance acceptance are reasonable. For something that very few people look forward to like a dentist visit, these attributes are about as good as it gets.

Sonia G. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter went to Dr. Michelsen today because she had to remove a tooth, and Dr. Michelsen was very nice and gentle to her. When she was doing this she kept a movie on of my daughter’s choice, so she wouldn’t pay attention to what Dr. Michelsen was doing to her teeth. The staff was very nice. I would highly recommended her to anyone because of the nice and gentle hands for any age.

Monica A. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I admit I don’t like going to the dentist, even for a cleaning! I get nervous! Also, I don’t like change. So when Dr. Keiser retired and Dr. Michelsen took over his practice, I was hesitant about seeing a new dentist. But she is wonderfully understanding of my crazy fear of dental work. When I had a crown replaced and 3 fillings, she’d stop to make sure I was okay! She has a calming manner in treating her patients. Her staff is very friendly and professional. Also, during this time of caution with Covid-19, I felt very safe having dental work in her office. I would highly recommend Dr. Michelsen!

Jane F. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Michelson Dental has taken very good care of me and my husband and enjoy both the care we get and the friendliness of the office. Appointments are on time, which is huge. Just returned for a cleaning since COVID reopening and the care of the office was wonderful. Masks, social distancing in the foyer, disinfectant available. Felt totally safe.

Dee A. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came today for a deep cleaning and other procedures. I appreciate the follow up since my first visit and consultation. Leslie is great with communication, she was on top of ensuring I knew my treatment plan and was ready for my appointment. Dr. Michelsen is also thorough in her explanations of the treatment that I need, she is also welcoming and made me feel comfortable . Ed did my deep cleaning today and he let me know what he was doing every step of the way, also very comforting. Brooklyn was fantastic also. Overall, everyone at this practice does their job to make sure you are cared for. Great experience and I will definitely be back for all following treatment!

Dr. Michelsen and her staff are the best! I worked specifically with Christina for my cleaning and she was super informative, knowledgeable and super friendly. I have quite a few things going on with my teeth, which I knew and was kinda scared to really deal with, but Dr. Michelsen and her staff (Liz, Leslie and Yanely) worked with me and my current situation and made me feel very at ease. You can’t go wrong choosing Dr. Michelsen as your dentist!

Lanny Van Eman (Source: Google)


My first visit to Michelsen was fo a crown consult. The telephone and front desk experience was clear and concise and friendly. I had a chance to work with Dawn, the assistant before seeing Dr. Michelsen. Both were extemely professional and they gave me the ” bad news ” in the best possible manner. Overall, my interaction was very good. I’m hopeful that they can solve my challenges.

Jyoti R. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Michelson is a god send !! I came to her extremely worried about my gums, as I have been experiencing quite a lot of bone loss. My gums are eroding away, even to having one of my teeth moving. She was super kind and patient with all the questions I had to ask her. Not only did she do a diligent job with my deep cleaning, she gave Me great advice on how to improve my gums. I decided to give her advice a try. 3 weeks later and my gums have turned pink and look super healthy! She also found a solution for that slightly moving tooth. Today, she helped me with my huge cavity. She was gentle and it didn’t feel like I was dreading being on the chair. Thank you so much Dr. Michelson!! I would rate her a 10/10!

Janelle F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office on and off for about 7 years. I moved away from the area for little bit, but as soon as I moved back, I made my 6 month appointment here. Everyone in the office is always SO friendly and makes going to the dentist as enjoyable as possible. They are always willing to discuss options and are not pushy at all. 🙂

Rafa Garcia (Source: Google)


This is a very friendly office and the staff makes you feel very comfortable . They explain what your options and give you complete details on your procedure . I highly recommend this dental office for your dental work . This is my 6 visit here and I plan on staying with this dentist for future dental work This dentist really cares about her clients I was shocked when I received a call from her asking how I was feeling after my procedure the next day I highly recommend Michelsen Dental

Dennis F. from El Monte City, El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Michelsen Dental is a very well run dental practice. They really treat you very well, giving you great individualized care and making you feel apart of their family. They also have a great front office that give you up-front costs and work with you and insurance companies to come up with good payment plans and options. Dr. Michelsen and her team have helped me with cleanings, cavity fillings, and even Invisalign teeth alignment. I highly recommend.
