I’m one of those people who hate going to the dentist. But then I went to Bayview dental and it changed my life. Always gentle cleanings, awesome staff and Dr Niknia is so honest! I went to a dentist who told me I needed a deep cleaning and cavities filled. I then got a second option (because I’m very good with my teeth) and Dr Niknia said I didn’t need any of that. I trust him 100%! One more bonus…the view of the bay is amazing when you’re getting your teeth cleaned. I have sent many of my friends there and they love it.

I love going to a doctor or dentist that sees me at my appointment time. I made the appointment because I had a cavity that needed to be filled. I was in and out of their office in about 35 minutes. The staff is great, super personable. I take my children to this dentist too, it is actually remarkable. I have never known a child to beg to go to the dentist. All of my children ask me every couple of weeks, “is it time to go to the dentist” They love it there, crazy I know…. I highly recommend Dr. Niknia to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Best experience you could ever have at the Dentist. The location is amazing. Each room have double doors that open to a nice terrace overlooking the Harbor, so you get to see the water and enjoy the sail boats while you get your teeth cleaned. Combine that with great service form the staff and an amazing bedside manor with Dr. Niknia, you can’t go wrong! Highly recommended!

I just had a deep cleaning here and it was one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had at the dentist.
I’ll let you read that sentence again.
The staff at Newport Bayview Dental is great. Totally on their game, very well organized, and plugged in to the insurance details. I knew exactly what I was going to pay before the appointment, which is a (sadly) unusual level of transparency.
My hygienist, Diana, is super attentive. She checked in with me throughout to make sure I was doing all right, and she really did a great job making sure that she got everywhere she needed to during the cleaning. And she managed the pain thing like a champ: at one point, I actually couldn’t tell if she was cleaning my upper teeth, or my lower teeth.
Dr. Niknia does a great job too. He has a cavity laser, which will make you feel like you’re both in space and in the future at the same time. He also speaks with you like you’re an adult (again, sadly unusual) and is clear with you about the consequences of not flossing. (The consequences of not flossing are deep cleanings and/or periodontal disease.)
So all in all, a super great experience, and I didn’t even mention the harbor view from the exam chairs, which is the cherry on top. Give them a shot – you’ll be happy.

My husband and I drive for about an hour each way to go see Dr. Niknia at his lovely Newport Bayview office. His staff is amazing; friendly, prompt, professional. The office is located in a stunning spot overlooking the water, and that in itself is a treat… you simply forget that you are in a dental office. It is like having a mini-vacation.
Dr. Niknia is very knowledgeable, generous with information he shares with each patient, truly professional yet very friendly and easy to talk to. It is kinda hard to believe, but I actually look forward to my teeth cleaning experience. Wish there was a six-star rating, just for type of occasion.

My husband and I have been going to see Dr. Niknia and his awesome staff, for years. I actually like going to the dentist, if it is this crew! They are very honest and trustworthy! There isn’t any reason to not refer them to everyone!

Jennifer P. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Niknia is the best dentist ever!  I don’t  really look forward to going to the dentist as I have a very sensitive mouth/teeth, but he (and his assistants) are very gentle.  Plus, he has a great view, which relaxes me and calms me down.  I would recommend him to anyone looking for a dentist.

Mary O. from Fallbrook, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had horrible dental experiences- who hasn’t. But forget about past fears…Dr Niknia and his staff are extremely nice and do whatever they can to ensure you’re well informed and as comfortable as possible. They are extremely proficient and efficient in detail to all aspects of dentistry and periodontal procedures. Bottom line: Rest assured you are in very capable, compassionate, and professional hands.

Angela S. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to Dr. Niknia for a cosmetic procedure (laser gum contouring). Him and his entire staff were extremely helpful and kind. He really wants to create the smile that YOU want. Not only is the office in a great location (literally you can see the water), but also very affordable. I will definitely be going back to him in the future for any other work.

Matthew K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Niknia and the team at Newport Bayview Dental are awesome.  I went in for a cleaning this week and had a very favorable experience.  The staff was very helpful and friendly, the quality of the teeth cleaning was top-notch, and they took my insurance, which covered all expenses.  I have no complaints and would recommend using Dr. Niknia to anyone living in the area looking for a dentist.

Jeramee W. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kaveh Niknia and his wonderful staff are the best! I hadn’t been to the dentist in a very long time and I knew I was going to need a lot of work done. I was recommended to Dr. Niknia and then realized my long time friend, Samantha, worked at this office also. The entire staff is outstanding and they do an excellent job explaining what is going on. I had a root canal that was honestly almost enjoyable because of the amazing view they have. Their office looks down into the Newport harbor, so the views very easily took away the fear I had of going to the dentist. I highly recommended Dr. Niknia!

Ryan H. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Niknia and his staff are amazing. First off his office is on the water in Newport Beach. When getting your teeth done you’re staring at the water and sailboats. On top of that his staff are always very welcoming and engaging which makes you feel great and wanted there! My personal experience over the last three years have been great. Dr. Niknia took me through the process of getting Invisalign which is something I’ve wanted for years. It took about 15 months which is exactly what he said from the beginning, and my teeth look great! I couldn’t be more happy. Also, I have never like the teeth cleaning process with all the tools etc, but this staff does a great job of making it painless. So many small things like warm clean up towels and more to make it a high level service and dental office. Thank you guys!

I have always been terrified due to awful experiences, immediately I walked in with tears dripping from my face. Samantha who greeted me calmed my tears and settled my anxiety. Then I was sat in that dreadful dentist chair, again with the tears… That is until Dr. Niknia walked in. Not only his words, but as I shook he placed a comforting hand on my shoulder. Instantly he calmed my nerves, I was given the option to take a break but to be honest with the good Doctor I didn’t need one. When you lay in that dreaded chair with the light sitting above your face you feel no blinding light, but you may gaze though the grand windowing looking onto the most beautiful scenery. I won’t write a novel but I absolutely could. In short, I am paying out of pocket to have the comfort of knowing that Dr. Niknia genuinely cares for my well being.

I’m very fearful of the dentist so the friendly atmosphere and the bay view really helped me keep calm. I had a couple fillings repaired and it was done very quickly with minimal to no pain. Both the dental assistant, Samantha and Dr. Niknia were very quick and gentle, they also checked on me several times to ask if I was doing ok. My main concern was post-op sensitivity, which I experienced the first time I got fillings and there has been no sensitivity whatsoever. My jaw is a little sore from keeping my mouth open, which is to be expected and Dr. Niknia preemptively communicated this as well so I knew what to expect. I would highly recommend Dr. Niknia and I’ll continue patronizing this office as well.

Courtney G. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Niknia for over a year now and I have always had positive experiences. They have a comfortable waiting room with beverages and a tv. Their staff is always friendly and always greets me with a smile. Kylie who works at the front desk has always provided me with all the information needed to make informed decisions about procedures. She is knowledgeable on insurance which is helpful to a young adult like me! I would recommend this dentist office to anyone.

Theodora S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Looking for a dentist was, for me, a nightmare.  Luckily I stumbled upon Bayview Dental.  I’ll admit, I almost passed it by as another ‘cosmetic’ dental office, thinking that they wouldn’t focus on taking care of my teeth and try to upsell me on elective services.   Couldn’t be happier to be wrong!  Dr. Niknia and his staff are wonderful!  Very caring, know their stuff, and do not try to load you up with unnecessary services.  They even accepted my insurance, and I had no out of pocket expenses for the visit.  The office is beautiful too.  If you’re looking for a dentist, stop looking and give them a call.

Sunday, three days ago, 6 pm… I was hanging out with my wife. All the sudden, searing pain drops me to my knees. My wife suggests that I go to the emergency room. I believe the emergency room is a waste of time unless it’s an aneurysm. I pop an Ibuprofen and bet on it not being an aneurysm.  
All night, I’m in agony. Multiple times an hour, I wake up, consumed with debilitating pain in my left brain that lasts 3-5 minutes. I thought I was going to die. Careful not to freak out other people, I cancel all clients and hold my schedule until further notice.  
I was scared.  
First thing Monday morning, I went to my primary care doctor. He sent me to the Hoag Emergency Room. The ER staff did a CT scan, said I was normal, offered me pain pills, and told me I had a headache. They referred me to a neurologist for 1:30 Wednesday (today) and gave me a prescription for pain medication.  
ER takes all day and tells me = you have a headache. No ‘expletive’ Sherlock.
I opted to not numb the pain because it would limit my ability to communicate the problem going on in my head and make good decisions. I wanted to be able to figure out where this pain was coming from.  
Fortunately, my wife heard me out.  It seemed there was a possibility the pain was from a dental issue as my mouth felt achy the whole day prior to the searing pain. So, we coordinated with my dentist, and set up an appointment first thing Tuesday (yesterday) morning. My grandfather had died of cancer eating away at his face, which could be traced back to a sinus infection, which could be traced back to a toothache. So I went to my dentist (Dr. Niknia) yesterday before my neurologist appointment today. (Neurologist appointment postponed indefinitely)
My dentist is so awesome and so is the staff!  He immediately informed me I needed a root canal due to an infected tooth with a dead nerve.
Dr. Niknia fixed me up with a root canal. I am 100% better. My mouth is sore, but I don’t care. I’m alive & don’t have a neurological disorder. I just had a toothache. (Still, toothache can kill a dude.)
I still believe that the ER is a waste of time, but my dentist is the best investment ever.  
If you are looking for an awesome local dentist, that cares, is fair, cool, does excellent work, takes insurance, and has a great support staff… look no further than Dr. Niknia & Newport Bayview Dental!

Vicki C. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Niknia has been my dentist for years and my family also.  He is up on all the best and newest techniques.  His staff are just lovely and every appt is on time.  They send texts to remind you of the appointments ahead.  New digs are lovely and great parking.  Tori is my hygienist and she is a perfectionist and lovely person too.

Can not praise this practice more.  They treat me with so much respect and I appreciate it at my age.

I think he is fantastic. I mean really. I even moved to Santa Monica and still go see him in Newport. That’s how valuable a good dentist means to me. I even love the little details in the office, like watching the fish when you are in the chair (you’ll see, just look up!) Great staff, always friendly and welcoming. Besides for the fact that I actually don’t like going to the dentist, this is as pleasurable as it can be!

Daniel W. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best Dental experience probably ever. Had the best “cleaning tech”(not sure if that’s what they are called) super friendly staff. Tori(probably mis-spelled) was great. Talked the whole time, sung, cracked jokes. Will be requesting her again for sure.

In my opinion if you are not getting your teeth cleaned here, you should. Bringing the whole family for round 2. Dr. Niknia was super nice and informative. Explained it with an iPad and pictures. Will gladly let this place put their hands in my mouth anytime ;o) in Thanks for the awesome dental experience!!

Steve M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to over 10 different Dentists in my lifetime and have enjoyed 3 root canals, at least 7+ Crowns and countless fillings. Needless to say, I’ve experienced my fair share of pain.

I recently changed to Dr. Niknia and for the first time, I had a Crown done and it was the BEST dental appointment I’ve ever had! I didn’t feel a thing the whole time! A wonderful experience, a fantastic staff and a great location, overlooking the Harbor!

Sam D. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Niknia and his staff are the best. I’ve been going there for years and continue to go even though I no longer live in the area. The beautiful view from the dental chair practically makes you forget that you’re at the dentist.
I hate going to the dentist and they do a wonderful job of explaining procedures to make you feel comfortable. I’ve recommended Dr. Niknia to so many people who have then done the same to others. I can’t say enough great things about Bayview Dental.

Angelina Arturo (Source: Facebook)


Every single staff member was super friendly and personable! I had a great experience and loved the view! One of the best dentist experiences I’ve had!

Jordin E. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to Newport Bayview Dental multiple times and could not be happier with the atmosphere, their amazing work and insightful staff! Everyone must go see Torey Carlyle, dental hygienist. She is absolutely amazing and you walk away pain free and your teeth smoother and whiter than ever! Newport Bayview Dental provides you with a dental office with a gorgeous view, family environment and they take care of you as if you were a part of their family! No need to be scared about your upcoming appointment if you schedule it with Torey Carlyle!!! Don’t wait until the last second, go get your teeth cleaned with amazing service!
Go See Torey!!

Victoria S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


WHAT? Loooooove their office. Had my first visit today and the reviews on Yelp are true. This office has a WONDERFUL staff (not to mention fun), and the Doctor is sooooo sincere, genuine and positive. He was very attentive and thorough in explaining everything. The X-rays were not uncomfortable at all as their office is highly modern and outfitted with some pretty fancy technology. I was searching for a new dentist closer to home and I found them. Look no more!
Even without the perfect view of Newport Harbor, I’d still go to see Dr. Niknia and his staff. I really don’t have anything bad to say about their office. Great experience.

Chris S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always avoided the dentist…up until now.  Dr. Niknia is by far the best Dentist i have ever met with.  He performed a root canal on me and i was in no pain.  Best dentist in the world.  Staff is great.

Davri S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went for my first visit yesterday, have been to a few different dentist over the years, but Dr Niknia has, by far, been the best! Great dentist, explains everything in a way us non-doctors can understand. Had to have three cavities filled but he & and his staff made the process painless and fast. The Front/Back office staff are amazing!

Kevin P. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going  here for about 5 years now and my experience is always the same…amazing.  Everyone in this practice is extremely friendly and helpful.  Dr. Niknia takes his time to explain things and really cares.  I’m always super happy with my experience.

It was awesome! Almost fell asleep cos I didn’t feel any pain. Thank you Dr. Kaveh!

Yuri C. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had THREE cavities today. So cavity-prone!!! But thanks to Dr Niknia, it was painless and seamless. Just so appreciate the work he does, and for the team that is super friendly and helpful. Thanks! Hopefully I won’t have cavities in my next check up though!

Kimberly M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Nicest staff ever! I have never had such an amazing dentist-related experience! I highly recommend this doctor.

Lisa G. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Niknia is amazing! He is kind and warm and he listens. He NEVER hurts me! I used to lose my mind in fear before I saw the dentist. Can you believe I actually look forward to going to the dentist now? ! His staff are all so sweet and friendly. And if you enjoy the water and relaxation like I do, there’s no place else to get a nice open air view of the bay while you’re having your dental work done. I will never go anywhere else again!

Katie C. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start my review by saying that I absolutely hate going to the dentist. I have very sensitive teeth & gums so a dental cleaning or cavity is my worst nightmare. But Dr. Niknia and his staff are wonderful. The dental cleaning technician was very thorough and gentle, as well as friendly. I had one cavity that Dr. Niknia had to fill and it was the quickest, most painless process ever. I’ve had cavities filled in the past and found the experience to always be miserable. But at the end of my appointment, it didn’t even feel like I had any work on my mouth done (other than slight numbness of course) (…).
