I literally just happened to see the sign and walked in off the street one day. Let’s begin with the front office staff. They are warm, kind, energetic, and very professional. They kept saying, “Don’t worry, we’ll take care of you.” They have family friendly videos so my 4 year old daughter loved the atmosphere as well. After her wonderful appointment, she was able to sit in the front office to watch videos, while I had my appointment. Next the dental assistants are fun, caring, and welcoming. If you are nervous about gong to the dentist, this is the place for you. They are very professional and informative as well. They really know their stuff. Loved the conversation. It was my daughter’s first time at the dentist and the technician played with her and let her see all the tools and really put her at ease. She had a great time at the dentist. Lastly, Dr. Park is super informative. He did a full inspection of my teeth. I am one who hadn’t been to the dentist in a while and needed to have ALOT of work done. He really took the time to come up with treatment and services that would address my most urgent needs, while letting me know which services could wait for more observation. He wanted to see if cleaning and care can reverse some of the less concerning areas, but will keep an eye on it in the future. The whole staff together is a well oiled machine that truly cares about making the customers feel good during services. They are professional, informative, and most importantly, work with your budget. I thought I was going to have to pay an atrocious amount of money, but the prices are more than reasonable. Thank you for such a wonderful time.

I’ve been coming to this Dentist facility for the past year and I have nothing but positive things to say about them. From Dr. Park to the entire staff, everyone is so kind and professional. Procedures and visits are always handled in a swiftly manner which I’m happy since I have to go to work.— Extremely important!! With this COVID-19 issue……The entire staff follows strict regulatory guidelines for the safety of their patients – minimizing the amount of patients inside the facility and everyone interacting directly with patients wear masks and face shields. Everyone else ensures to wear their masks. I felt very safe and comfortable during the procedures. Totally recommend this facility!

She was very nice and explained everything and made me feel comfortable with the treatment and the treatment plan she put together . My husband and I loved her and will definetly be returning for all our dental needs.

Coffee L. from Orinda, CA (Source: Yelp)


One of the best dentist I ever had! Got my final wisdom tooth pulled and had no pain / super quick recovery compared to my previous experience with another dentist that removed my wisdom tooth. The doctor is very knowledgeable and also very friendly. I told her that I have an interest in going to dental school in the future and provided great insight and advice, which was really nice of her. She even allowed me to shadow her during my undergraduate years which I really appreciate it. It allowed me to have better understanding of the field of dentistry. I love the staff here as well. The front office / front desk staff and back office staff are all friendly and very welcoming.

My very first experience started at the phone call with receptionist Alexis. She was very soft spoken, helpful and kind. The appt with hygenist Angeli went just as great, she was attentive, kind and had my 4yr old daughter engaged every minute of the appt including while cleaning her teeth. Then when the dentist Dr. Kara Park did exam, she was also just as amazing as her staff. I loved our first visit and looking forward to our whole family to be treated by Dr. Kara Parks and her staff st Mission Grove Dentistry. Thank you, The Pena Family.

I have a regular dentist who is excellent but he doesn’t do orthodontia.  After a bunch of years I needed a new orthodontic retainer and checked dentists in my area through Yelp.  After reading the reviews, I picked MGD and was not disappointed.  Very courteous staff, sparkling office and equipment, and Dr. Park was cordial and professional.  Her tech staff was also friendly, skilled, and efficient. I’m seriously considering making this my new dental office.

Mariko R. from Moreno Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a new patient here, and for my first visit they’ve definitely left a positive impression. Before coming, I read the other reviews and was excited to meet the staff. They’re just as nice as everyone else has said! Alexis and Becky were very helpful when explaining things to me. Dr. Parks was also very informative and made sure I knew exactly what she was doing before she did it. Lauren is a great hygienist, very easy to converse with! Made me feel like we’ve been friends for years. Looking forward to coming back for my next appointment.

I am so pleased with my experience at Mission Grove Dentistry. Like many others, I suffer from dentist anxiety. However, Dr. Park and her staff were excellent. Lauren, the hygenist, was personable, funny, gentle and thorough. She made me feel so comfortable. Dr. Park was very kind and throrogh. I would absolutely recommend this office 10/10 times.

My experience today was awesome. Loren that cleaned my teeth that I hate having done, was wonderful. Heather was fantastic in explaining everything I needed to know with regards to payment, from the front desk to dr. Park, I highly recommend this office. another visit today july 5, I have never gone into this office without seeing smiles, and warm welcome. wait is always short. had the wires on my braces tightened, again, everything is explained as they are working and they always make the visit as easy as possible.

Julie T. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so please with my experience. Dr. Park is very kind, thorough and gentle. She didn’t seem rushed and made me feel important. Lauren, the hygienist is excellent! She is very personable and kind. She made my experience enjoyable actually. How often can you say that about going to the dentist? She was thorough and gentle during my cleaning but made me laugh and talked about things to keep my mind occupied. I feel like she went above and beyond.

Robin N. from Ontario, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first appointment with Mission Grove yesterday. I’ve been to many good and bad dentist offices, but Mission Grove is by far the best office I’ve ever been to. As soon as I walked in the receptionist was very friendly and explained all of the first visit paperwork in detail. I felt very comfortable signing the paperwork. The x-ray technician was friendly as well! She took me back and for my x-rays taken quickly while answering any questions I had. Dr. Park then came to my room. She spent a long while with me discussing my history, my concerns, and what my expectations and fears were. She took time to get to know me as a person so she could better understand the kind of care she needed to provide for me. She’s very personable and kind. She explained to me everything she was looking at and why, and if she had concerns. She justified every recommendation for treatment thoroughly. I had a deep cleaning on half of my mouth. It was very reasonably priced and not that painful. Lauren was awesome! She makes you feel like a regular immediately. I’m so glad I came across this dental office on yelp. The good reviews were not wrong!

After completing my 14 months with braces I couldn’t be any happier with the outcome and the service that I received here. Every month I would go I was greeted and had to wait very little time to be seen. My kids would always end up having to go with me and they too also noticed how clean and friendly the staff here always was. I will be a returning customer and be recommending my family and friends to this dentistry. Thank you Mission Grove Dentistry staff.

Adam G. from Elk Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


The downside to the services provided are as follows: Pricing is ridiculous. If you are not an experienced negotiator you’re going to. Pay full price. I will not mention names but there is one person there that entire job description is to upself, scare patients into getting treatment and charging as much as he/she believes the patient is able to pay. I’ve had a procedure done and paid $1,000 after haggling over the price from $ 1,400.  A frisbee of mine had the exact same issue bit too long ago and he paid the entire $1,400. The doctors are great though and I highly recommend this spot provided you negotiate pricing ahead of time.

Just would like to share that this Place is spectacular, friendly, fast service, nice environment, etc. The attention to details, quality of service and professionalism at this practice are Excellent. They have been caring, always asking if i felt comfortable during the procedures and great customer service since the moment you enter this place. “Kudos Mission Grove Dentistry” Luis R.

Their employees are so caring and super friendly. Honestly when it come to my family care I’m very picky. Their employees are super professional and very trustworthy. I feel like a family every time I go there. I can recommend it because I been coming here for more than 4yrs!!

George P. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my second visit to this particular dental office. As of now I have been very pleased with my care. I came in for a cleaning that was delayed due to COVID-19. When I came in I was glad to see they are taking precautionary measures. They took my temp, asked a few questions and I was ready to go. Something I was not expecting was the air filtration device next to me as they worked on me. All in all I had a great experience and plan to come back again.

I’ve always been afraid of going to the dentist but the people here are so kind and make the experience a lot more easier than any other dental office I’ve been too. I’ve been a patient for almost 2 years now and every visit has been great. Positive and friendly staff no matter who it is and they all make sure to do the best every time.

The Mission Grove Dentistry office recently provided me with excellent service in every way. First, the receptionist informed me of the COVID-19 precautions in the office. I felt reassured that the office inquires about recent travel and symptoms. Because I have quarantined completely except for the essentials, meaning I waited to return to the dentist, I was a little nervous. Nonetheless, the staff and the doctor made me safe and comfortable. Second, it was also a plus to know that the office also can explain everything in Spanish too. I will certainly recommend this office to my Spanish speaking friends and family. Finally, the actual dentist work impressed me. The doctor took the time to explain preventive care techniques, the ways to improve my smile, and encouraged me to ask any additional questions. Overall, my experience was exceptionally good, and as a new person in the area I feel fortunate to have found this office.

Christina N. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Park and her team are amazing! I brought her 2 little girls that were scared to death of the dentist and they instantly overcame this with the gentleness and patience of the staff. We have been seeing Dr. Park for 5 years and I have never been treated better at a dentist. They are extremely accommodating of my tricky schedule and their payment plans are so helpful. I recommend this office to everyone I know for general dentistry and ortho.

Yomaira M. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I could have not made a better choice than to bring my mother to Mission Grove Dentistry. My mother moved to a new city and was in need of a new dentist as she was experiencing some discomfort. I searched on Yelp and thanks to the great reviews that this business has it made me feel confident in making an appointment. I visited their website, made an appointment on Monday evening and by Tuesday morning I received a call from their office confirming my mother’s appointment. My mother and I arrived at their office on Wednesday day of her appointment. Office waiting area smelled pleasantly, it was clean, offered a little station to make yourself some green tea and had a tv to entertain patients while waiting. Alexis greeted us and helped us get started with paperwork and answered questions we had. She was just so sweet and helpful. I don’t remember the name of the young lady who assisted the doctor who was also so kind and very knowledgeable explaining procedures to my mother. Doctor was so awesome as I was there to witness everything. He was gentle and  took the time to explain the diagnosis very detailed and understandably. My mother is very satisfied overall. We definitely recommend Mission Grove Dentistry.

I just relocated from NY to CA and needed a new dentist. My insurance network listed this facility as an option but I double checked on Yelp that it had good reviews. I read many positive reviews and sure enough. Customer service was second to none. My initial check up was excellent; they took my X-Rays and prepped me for the Dr’s analysis of my teeth. They listened to my concerns and they provide me with their recommendations and plan of action. It was a through examination and afterward, I sat down with a scheduler to come up with a plan and follow ups. I am so impressed with how organized, friendly and professional everyone was. I totally recommend this facility. They have brand new equipment and a state of the art full mouth x-ray machine. Lastly, this is a one stop shop dentistry facility in case you need oral surgery.

Tony C. from Perris, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone at Mission Grove Dentistry focuses on treating the customer with the upmost respect and are always making everyone feel welcomed. Their staff is very knowledgeable  and explain the process beforehand and during to make you aware of what is going on. They are clear about everything they do and I would highly recommend this location to anyone!

Usually and generally speaking, when the majority of people have to go to their dentist and have some dental works done, they’re so nervous and not to mention they procrastinate it. I on the other hand love it truly and genuinely to go for my dental health and required works to the Mission Grove Dentistry. Dr. Park is an excellent and very knowledgeable dentist. She explains very throughly and informs patients about their conditions and offers the best options and advice. She doesn’t like to offer the patients anything other than what they really need to do for their dental health. She doesn’t like to advertise about any products/procedures that patients don’t need unlike few other dental offices in the area. The dental higenists , Alexis and Lauren are absolutely the best ones that I have ever had. I always feel so comfortable in their hands. So bright and competent. While undergoing the procedure, they always ask me about my comfort status and any need I have. I never experienced any discomfort under their care. Patricia and Mindy are very nice and kind and I like them so much. I love Heather the Office Manager who always Provides me with enough information and never neglects my concerns and calls me when I need her to help me to make the best appropriate decisions about the financial procedures. She is a Very remarkable, gentle, knowledgeable, kind, reliable, and most understanding office manager I have ever come to know. Becky who has joined this remarkable team recently, is so cute, very nice and very friendly and fun to talk to who has always greeted me with charm whenever she welcomes me to the office or answers my calls. Honestly, my family and I are so blessed to be having such a wonderful team at the Mission Grove Dentistry. Love you all.

The dentists and staff here are very helpful and patient with my 91-year-old father-in-law.  They have fixed his mouth so now that he can eat most anything… Before that only soft food so it makes him very happy. When my husband is unable to go, the staff will come out and help me get him out of the car and help me get him and the wheelchair back into the car.  They go above and beyond what most people do. He doesn’t have insurance so they make sure and let me know what the cost is going to be before making appointments for him. Their prices are also very reasonable.I can’t thank them enough for their kindness and patience.

Ashlee M. from Moreno Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone here if very friendly. Michelle did a really great job cleaning and checking my imperfections. They all had great recommendations and the assistants were all very helpful as well. The place is in a nice location and the clinic is very clean. Dr. Park is a lady she is very nice and has a lot of knowledge and keeps herself updated on new techniques and procedures. Great place for dentistry.

Anthony S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was searching for a dentist for over year and a half, after my dentist of 10 years had passed away suddenly. The staff here at Mission Grove Dentistry are professional, polite, accommodating, and caring about patient wellness and long term dental maintenance. Feels wonderful to connect with another dentist and staff that I am comfortable and confident in. My recent crown replacements were flawless, my hygienists have been top notch, encouraging, and very sweet. I am bringing my niece here as well since she is looking for an awesome dentist! Big T.

Rusty P. from La Sierra, Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was able to see Dr Park for an emergency root canal 3 hours after I called for an appointment everyone was personable, professional, and friendly.  I have very sensitive teeth, and they did a good job of continually monitoring me to keep me as comfortable as possible..  I haven’t been fitted for a crown yet, but so far, I’m happy with the way I was treated..  I’ll definitely go back for further work.

I am a new client, and I was way over due taking care of my dental needs, because of a bad experience I had at another dental practice. I was very nervous, but Dr. Parks and her caring staff, quickly made me feel comfortable. After only 2 visits, I have already recommended them. I have finally found a dentist and staff that I can feel good about. Thank you, Dr. Parks and staff for getting me back on track, I truly appreciate the compassion you show me. See you soon!

Not fond of going to the dentist and it had been about 5 years. I read the positive reviews about Dr. Park and staff . I believe you not only need a dentist/doctor who is great at what they do but also personable and able to listen. PLUS, everyone in the office will set the mood of the whole place. Still went in a skeptic…..well I cant say enough positive things about Dr. Park, her amazing hygienist and the whole staff!! Would recommend her highly!

Carly P. from Moreno Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Mission Grove Dentistry for about 2 years now. They take my insurance and are affordable. The doctor’s are very professional and the staff is exceptional! They are SUPER friendly and I feel very comfortable every time I go. I got adult braces and my teeth are straightening out nicely and they take pics to document the progress. They treat you like family and I highly recommend coming here. Given the whole Covid situation they are extra clean and the assistants wear masks, face shields, and gowns.

Mary T. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve ever had and we’ve had many because we’re a military family. The staff is so personable, knowledgeable and thorough. Always friendly, helpful and the dentist is the same way. Open during COVID and they do everything you can think of to keep patients safe, no wait time in lobby! So happy we found this dentistry!

Kimberly M. from Fishers, IN (Source: Yelp)


I am not and have never been a fan of going to the dentist but I had to go. I will say that I have never been to a more personable staff and engaged dentist! Dr. Park was so gentle and listened to me and my fears while her staff were amazing, everyone addressed me by my name even though it was my first visit. I am so impressed and recommend Dr Park and her office to everyone especially those who have had bad experiences and fears of going to the dentist.

Rianna B. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going here for about two years and I have nothing but good things to say! The dental hygienists are so kind and knowledgeable! They always have me out in an hour or less! Also the doctors are awesome and had me in for cavity fillings the same day! If you’re looking for a new dentist spot definitely would recommend!

Adriana F. from Orangecrest, Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience coming back to the dentist was super great!! Mission Grove Dentist employees were amazing, very polite and super friendly. The environment was so peaceful and super comfortable. The area was amazing, extra clean and with lots of precautions. They were so professional,  but also they made me feel super comfortable!! Thank you Mission Grove Dentist I’m ready to come back in three months!!! Great job.
