I was in need of a few implants and after visiting a couple of doctors I finally decided to get them done with Dr. Manesh. I can truly say that he knows what he is doing. He is very professional and does his best to make the patient feel comfortable through the entire process. It has been a few months now since my procedure and I couldn’t be happier with both the results and the continued help from Dr. Manesh. I have visited his office for follow-ups and have still continued to receive amazing service.

From the moment I walked through the door I knew I had come to the right place. With modern state-of-the-art equipment and technology throughout I felt confident I was going to be well cared for, and I was. My implant procedures were seamless and I had no pain or discomfort at all following.
I highly recommend Dr. Manesh and his staff.

Dr Manesh at Mission Dental is simply the best dental implant doctor I’ve ever met! Along with his immaculate brilliant workmanship, Dr Manesh is also really passionate about implants and enjoys the process of fixing those teeth. Dr Manesh has a positive professional vibe, and relaxes you from the start. You know you’re in expert care. The two implants Dr Manesh installed, have turned out so well! If you want the best, look no further. In the event I might need another, I’m definitely going back to him.

The two implants Dr Manesh installed have turned out so well! The last procedure (implant installation) was very comfortable and under 20 minutes. It was effortless, no stitches either. It’s been two days now and there’s no swelling or pain. I’m so happy. If you want the best, look no further. In the event I might need another, I’m definitely going back to him!!

I began treatment with Dr. Manesh over a year ago. My case was complicated. Dr. Manesh eased my anxiety about dental treatment in general immediately. He has been professional and knowledgable every step of the way. Dr. Manesh and his staff have been accommodating with my schedule and have been innovative with treatment and timelines. I am thankful to be a patient of Dr. Manesh. He is one of the leading specialists in the implant industry in the US and is “to the second” educated in all aspects of both Zirconium and Titanium implants. I am almost done with my treatment. I would highly recommend Dr. Manesh for Implant Dentistry.

I had a dental implant and bone grafting by Dr. Manesh. I did lots of research before deciding he is the best around for zirconium implants. I am very pleased with the results. I think Zirconium is a better option than Titanium. Most dental offices want to go titanium because that is all they know. The natural way to go is Zirconium.

Wonderful experience with Dr. Manesh and his team, Sandra, Kim and Lesa!!  A big thank you to them for making me feel comfortable, the process easy, and their warm welcoming smiles really calmed my nerves. I had a crown lengthening done and was a bit nervous about the whole thing but they were all so professional and encouraging, letting me know all was going to be OK. The procedure itself was fast and painless. Dr. Manesh working quickly and made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire thing. If I need anything else done in the future, Dr. Manesh and Mission Dental Implant Center is where I will go. Highly recommend 🙂

I came to Dr Manesh to have an extraction and implant done. He and his staff are completely professional, courteous and friendly. They were patient and thorough with my questions and made sure I understood and was comfortable with the whole process. Can’t say enough good things about this Dr. and his staff. Highly recommend!

(…) Dr. Al Manesh saw me for an emergency then and I have been a loyal patient of him since then. He is upfront with his treatment plan and always explains things in a simple way so even I could understand them. Both myself and my wife are now happy patients of this practice. They are especially good with dental implants in the Mission Viejo office and use both ceramic and normal titanium implants. We have both types in our mouth and never had any trouble with them. The staff are also quite nice.

Today I went to Dr. Manesh for a consultation for a dental implant. I was very impressed by every single person who greeted me, took an x-ray and checked me out. Dr. Manesh was very professional and kind. He took the time to show me what needed to be done and told me in detail what to expect. It was definitely one of the best experiences I’ve ever had at a dental office and I look forward to having my implant done with him.

Diane L. from Laguna Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) Dr Manesh was patient understanding and very supportive The extraction was easy and his use of packed cells in the gym heading was fast and comfortable. 3 months later getting the implant I was nervous but it went ok and I don’t even feel it any different than my natural teeth.
I highly recommend their services Everyone on the staff are warm and supportive, professional and responsive to all my questions and concerns Going for dental care isn’t easy for most people but they do their best to make it as comfortable and food as possible.

Pete G. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Every experience I’ve had at MDIC has been positive. I feel comfortable and confident in every aspect of my visits, past and present. Both Dr Manesh and (partner doctor)  make me feel at ease, as does the dental hygienist. I would recommend MDIC to anyone in need of periodontal care or implant work.

Dr Manesh is a great periodontist! I’ve had a couple of quick and painless procedures performed by him, and he is truly one of the best. Even when administering local anesthesia, the process is smooth and is not as painful as past procedures that I’ve had. The staff in the office are always friendly and efficient. I would definitely recommend him to any and all who come across Dr Manesh when looking for a periodontist

Rita F. from Blackstone, MA (Source: Yelp)


Five months ago I had my first surgery with Dr. Manesh which was a very difficult surgery that required sinus lifting and replacing 3 Zirconia implants. I’ll never trust anyone’s work but Dr. Manesh’s work. He’s a good man, and a great dentist. Hands down the best dentist I have ever been to. His work is excellent, GENIOUS  Dentist like Dr. Manesh is rare to find.    THANK YOU DR. MANESH!

Jonathan S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr Manesh because my friend referred me to Mission Dental Implant Center. Everyone was super friendly and the dr spent quite a bit of time with me explaining the procedure that I needed. I scheduled the appt for two weeks later and I can honestly say it was painless and best of all, comparable in price to other dentists I had called who didn’t offer titanium implants. I’m definitely going to refer Dr. Manesh and staff.

When it comes to dental implants, Dr. Manesh is one of a kind. HE IS THE BEST DENTAL IMPLANT SPECIALIST. My wife and I have been going to him for years and have always been satisfied 100% with his dental work. Dr. Manesh has excellent bedside manners and his supportive staff have always been helpful and accomodating.

(…) Mission Dental Implants has just the best support staff ever. Dr. Manesh is the most caring and superb doctor. I have complete confidence and I have a great experience in spite of extractions and implants. I am very happy that I have Dr. Manesh. I highly recommend Mission Dental Implant you will be quite please with their service (…).

(…) Finding a dentist that specialized in zirconia implants was not easy, as a matter a fact all dentist where I live tried to talk me out of getting zirconia, simply because it was something they were not trained in or did not provide. Luckily I found Dr. Al Manesh, I was so impressed with his beautiful office, his professional office staff and most importantly with Dr. Al Manesh. He made me feel very comfortable and was very patient and thorough in answering all my questions and concerns. When I left his office I felt reassured I had made the right decision in choosing a zirconia implant and knew I found a very qualified and educated dentist that specialized in zirconia implants to perform my procedure. In my experience, my implant placement was painless, It fused quickly to the bone, my crown was fitted perfectly, the color match was precise and most importantly I had no complications. I am very happy with my zirconia implant! I can tell by my experience that Dr. Al Manesh is a perfectionist, who takes great pride in his work and truly cares about what is best for his patients. I am very grateful to Dr. Al Manesh and his office staff for making my experience a positive one.

Dr. Manesh has done fantastic work on my implants. I had two baby teeth that had to be replaced with implants. I also have a metal allergy and with the ceramic implants that’s not an issue. I am very happy with the process and they look and feel great! Dr. Manesh has a very professional staff and an elegant atmosphere.

I went to see Dr. Manesh to have my front tooth replaced. I was nervous about having to deal with the embarrassment of losing a front tooth at this stage in my life and didn’t know what to expect. Dr. Manesh and his entire staff were excellent in their customer care throughout my treatment. I left there with an awesome temporary that looks exactly like my natural tooth! I don’t feel self-conscious at all in public or in my professional interactions. It is like having my own tooth back and I never skipped a beat.
I would highly recommend The Mission Dental Implant Center to anyone who is looking for excellent patient care and results!

Dr. Manesh took care of an implant and bone graft earlier this year and I trusted him to take care of me now. Staff is very friendly and my concerns are addressed appropriately and in a very timely manner. Thank you.

(…) Dr. Manesh is a caring doctor with great expertise in his field. I have to get 2 bone grafts and implants, one of each side of the mouth, so the doctor recommended that I should do them one by one so at least I have one good side to eat while the other is healing. I did my right side graft 1 week after consultation and finally did my left side yesterday. The whole experience is definitely scary but having an excellent doctor like him does help ease the fear. As I was laying on the surgery chair, I was so glad I chose him. Personally, I don’t think the process is simple at all, it requires a lot of experience. He drew my blood and centrifuged to use at the grafting site. He cut and collected bone from one site in my jaw and placed at the implant site then sew everything up. There’s absolutely no pain but you can hear the scraping and feel the pressure. These are the moments that I’m so happy I went with an experienced doctor.
(…) Don’t hesitate to see Dr. Manesh for a consultation if you are looking for a great periodontist. All of his staff are very professional, friendly and helpful. It’s hard to find a caring office like that.

My experience here was amazing. I had tooth resorption and due to wanting to wait to handle it until after my wedding, it appeared I waited too long and was in agonizing pain. I called Dr. Manesh’s and spoke to Kim. She was so sweet and understanding, you could tell she actually cared! She got me an appointment the next day despite them being booked, since I was in so much pain. During my consultation, the dental assistants Deirdre helped Dr. Manesh go over my options. They were both very sweet and thorough. Sandra went over financing with me and even got me scheduled for surgery the very next day! The surgery went great. Only took an hour and I am so thankful to be in relief from the pain. I couldn’t sleep, eat, work or anything until I came here! The surgery was completely painless. Dr. Manesh and his staff are absolutely amazing and the sweetest people ever. Thank y’all so much.

My Dad had a tooth extracted a couple days ago, and he had nothing but good things to say about everybody at Dr. Manesh’s office. I had been trying to get him to start the extraction and implant process for months, and when I talked to him after his appointment he said he didn’t know why he waited. The assistants were so friendly and he didn’t even feel Dr. Manesh numbing him 🙂 My Dad appreciated how thorough Dr. Manesh and the assistants were in regard to what to expect during and after the procedure. Thank you to the entire team for taking such good care of him.

I’ve had two implants with Dr. Manesh. I did a lot of research to find the best doctor for my Ceramic Implants. Not only does he do a great job, but he also teaches other Dentists how to do the implants. He is really good at what he does and I am so happy that I found him. I love my Ceramic Implants! Thank you Dr. Manesh!

Farideh B. from Laguna Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a very good experience with Dr Manesh. He implanted two teeth for me and one for my husband. he did an excellent job and I’m very pleased with his work. Confirmation of the quality of his professional work came to full light when I went for an annual check-up to my general dentist. I was told that Dr Manesh did a first-class job on my teeth. I fully recommend him without any reservation.

Renee M. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Al Manesh has been very kind, patient and professional from my first consultation almost 2 years ago. I have high anxiety with any kind of dental work as I have had problems with my teeth since childhood, despite meticulous care and regular visits and cleanings. As a result of these chronic issues I have had 4 teeth extracted with Dr. Manesh, and will be going forward with implants in a few months. He explains everything thoroughly and makes me feel at ease. I would not want to go anywhere else to have my implant needs addressed. His front office staff Lynda is always sweet and genuinely seems to be concerned and aware of all the patient’s needs, and every one of his nurses I have interacted with has been wonderful. I highly recommend this practice.

Rosa G. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


I took my brother-in-law to Dr.Al Manesh for a failing bridge which was done many years ago in Houston, Texas. I can’t say enough positive things about Dr. Al Manesh and his staff! They are professional, yet personable and really care about the treatment. Dr Al Manesh saw my brother in law the same day. We knew that he would need five Implants with was done. by him the very same day using a (reputable brand). We also noticed that he also uses Ceramic Dental Implants in his Mission Viejo office and is actually a leading periodontist with a specialty in Zirconia Implant dentistry. He was an excellent and incredibly gentle dentist and listened to us the entire time. We have a great respect for him and the treatment he provided on such short notice. His office is relaxing which is a must for any dentist. I would recommend him for any implant dentistry.

I need to start off by saying that I normally don’t take the time to write reviews on businesses but I felt I had to with Mission Dental Implant Center.   This office is great, the staff is very professional and friendly.  I had previously gone to 2 other offices and I was not only given the best treatment option at mission dental implant center but I was given the best price.  The office took care of all my insurance paperwork and I had a great experience with my overall treatment.  I highly recommend this office.

It seems like anything that can go wrong with teeth has gone wrong with my teeth so of course I wasn’t surprised when I was told it would be best to get an implant. Thankfully, my regular dentist recommend Dr. Manesh and I wasn’t disappointed. EVERYONE was very friendly and explained everything in a manner in which you can understand. Very professional office!! If you’re in need of an implant I would defiantly go to Dr. Manesh and staff!!!

I appreciate the combination of quality care and helpful information at Dr. Manesh’s practice. I am prone to gum disease, so thorough cleanings and knowing how to take care of my oral health between visits is really important to me.

Tommie K. form Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Manesh and his entire staff are true professionals. The technology used in his office and the procedures are the latest in dental implant innovations.
I highly recommend him.

I am forever grateful to Dr. Manesh and his entire staff. Was I scared ~ YES beyond scared. But, in the end he was able to deliver something much better than we expected. Dr. Manesh is an expert in his field. Look no further. SERIOUSLY. Thank you Dr. Manesh ~ I can’t wait for the end result.

Peter Liakopoulos (Source: Yelp)


I went to see Dr. Manesh for a tooth that needed to be extracted and replaced with an implant. I was very nervous and skeptical of the outcome due to the fact that it was one of my front upper teeth. I didn’t want a bridge and wasn’t sure how an implant would look in place of my natural tooth. Dr. Manesh explained to me in great detail the treatment process, surgical procedure and the type of implant that would be my best option to replace my soon to be missing front tooth. I am very happy with the look and feel of my new one-piece ceramic implant.

Rick H. from El Toro, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just recently had some implant work done from Mission Dental Implant in Mission Viejo. These guys did an excellent job and I couldn’t be happier. Their staff is super friendly and easy to talk to. I would definitely recommend them to any of my family or friends.
