First of all, I NEVER write yelps, but I felt a strong need to write one about this office. Doctor Agarwal is more than an orthodontist she is truly looking out for the well being of her patients. She cares about everyone around her.  She’s very close with her staff and extreamly knowledgable. She relates to you as a mother.  She hours on is to do what’s best for everyone. Always upbeat and positive.  I absolutely love this office I have never experienced anything like this before. So yes, if I could give this review 10 stars I would but it only allows me to go up to 5!

Doctor Divya and Dr. Peter Skuben are the best. Spent 2 years going there for my braces and it was always a pleasure and good experience. the clinique is very clean, latest equipment and very professional people at there location. will recommend this place to everyone. Note : I had an under bite problem, and had other orthos telling me the only way to fix is going through a surgery, but Doctor Diviya fixed with regular braces and rubber band and lot of dedication… Thank you

My daughter Veronica has always been insecure about her smile since she was in 3rd grade. We finally decided to do something about it and take her to Newport-Mesa Orthodontics with Dr. Agarwal. Since the day we showed up at the office we were treated great. Everyone was so welcoming and understanding. Over the process of 2 years, Veronica finally got the smile that she wanted. She couldn’t be happier with the results. She can finally be confident when smiling. Me and my daughter are beyond thankful for all the hard work Dr. Agarwal and her team have done.

This was my first time visiting this dentist office and my experience couldn’t have been better! They saw me as soon as my appointment time arrived and were very quick yet thorough with all steps of the process. I would highly recommend visiting this dentist to my family and friends in the future. All around fantastic and professional staff and my teeth have never looked cleaner!

Safina Motiwala from Irvine, CA (Source: Healthgrades)


I have been a patient of Dr. Agarwal since May 2014. After 2.5 years of treatment, I can say that I could not be more pleased with my results. I used to have a giant overbite with completely crooked teeth. Being a sophomore in high school at the time I was hesitant to have braces for events like prom and graduation, but Dr. D, Martha, Victor, and the rest of the staff made the process so simple and painless. The staff treated me and my brother (who was getting braces for a second time) like family.

Ryan B. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of both Dr. Agarwal and Dr. Skuben. They both put a lot of care and attention to ensuring I felt comfortable and at ease about my care. I’ve always been sensitive about my teeth as an adult, but felt right at home with both, with absolutely no judgement. Dr. Skuben is a pro. I had to have two crowns placed, and the whole procedure was seamless. I’ve been a patient of Dr. Agarwal for a couple months now, as I had braces put on my bottom teeth to address some overcrowding that was affecting my bite. I have already noticed a huge difference in just over a month, and both Dr. Agarwal and staff have been super accommodating scheduling me in to address any issues I’ve had. Definitely recommend Newport-Mesa Orthodontics and Dentistry! They really do make you feel at home :o)

Carolyn D. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I finally found a fair price for my braces! I’m so happy with the whole experience- the staff are courteous, kind and cheerful, and the atmosphere is calm and soothing. I enjoy my visits (which says a lot, anyone out there who has had a fair amount of dental work knows what I mean). As a working professional, the clear/white brackets are a lifesaver. I feel that everyone in this office genuinely cares, and they take pride in their work. I would definitely recommend this office 100%.

My experience at Newport-Mesa Orthodontics and Family Dentistry have been wonderful. I had heard about them through a friend and she really enjoyed her experience and so I decided to get a free consultation. Every time I step foot in the building, I feel very welcomed and valued. I have been going to this office for about a year now for orthodontics as well as dentistry. My teeth are looking great and I get compliments all the time. Not only do they do a great job, they are very flexible with my schedule and never keep me waiting. The location is great as well (right off the 55 freeway). I highly recommend going to Newport-Mesa Orthodontics and Family Dentistry.

I’ve had such an positive life changing experience at Newport-Mesa Orthodontics!! Beautiful results in my new smile!! ❤️ Doctors & support staff have shown their experience in their craft. Always friendly and professional. They’ve helped my son feel comfortable, making him laugh & talking to him throughout the entire process. My own Ortho treatment has been as comfortable as possible with amazing results! I am so excited to recommend anyone seeking any type of dental procedures or just as simple as a quick cleaning. Thank you again Newport-Mesa!!

Victoria F. from Omaha, NE (Source: Yelp)


I had a fantastic experience here! I started my orthodontic treatment approx. 2 1/2 years ago and just recently got my braces off a few weeks ago and I couldn’t be  happier with the results! It exceeded my expectations. The entire staff has always been extremely professional and the facilities are always very clean. They always worked with my schedule whenever I needed to come in. I would highly recommend coming here because of the friendly staff and reasonable payment plan.

Last month I went into Newport-Mesa Orthodontics a check-up as a new patient. The office looks very organized and is setup with modern technology and equipment.  I was super impressed with the professionalism of the staff.  Sarah made the check-in process super simple. My dental hygienist, Hope, performed my teeth cleaning and I could tell she did a great job! I’m super happy with the service and I highly recommend this dental office.

I decided to have my teeth straightened here because of the great service and atmosphere. It’s a very personal dentistry, meaning you will get all the attention you need and form a good relationship with your orthodontist. The results were also great, and my teeth straightened out beautifully. I strongly recommend choosing Newport Mesa Orthodontics!

I’ve known Dr. D and Dr. Skuben for years and they are the greatest team you could ever trust to have your teeth cleaned! They treat you like family and truly care about you. I’ve never had such a great experience before. They sit down with you and ask about who you are and what your needs are. They’ll always work with you if you have any concerns. Dr. Skuben is all about high tech and is truly enthusiastic about all the newest technology and equipment… The office is so family friendly and amazing. Highly recommend. 🙂

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


Dr. D and the entire team at Newport Mesa Orthodontics are friendly and helpful. In addition to being a nice group of people, Dr. D took her time to educate me on some aspects of my oral health and orthodontic options. I’ve never liked going to the Dentist but I don’t feel that way about going now. I would give 6 stars if I could!

I have got tooth cleanings, my daughters braces, and cavities filled here. This place is nothing short of amazing. Right from the latest equipment where I can see three dimensional images of the entire mouth, state of the art facilities, and the warm atmosphere here, this is the only dental office is at a level that is far beyond others. Also Dr. D is very very qualified, she has her DDS from Colombia University, and her Ortho from Boston University, which are both Ivy League universities. It is a pleasure to get treatment from such a highly qualified orthodontist/dentist.

Angela D. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I brought my son here to get his braces. He got them off today, and Dr. Divya Agarwal did an amazing job with his new smile. My experience coming here has always been a positive one. The staff has always been friendly, and professional along the whole process. I will continue to come here for future dental checkups.

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


I had an amazing experience with Newport- Mesa orthodontics!! I had braces for 1 year and 6 months. They made me feel very comfortable throughout my treatment and made me feel at home every time I came in for a tightening. I am so pleased with the staff here, very welcoming and attentive to your needs! i would recommend this place if you’re looking into getting braces, they are the best on what they do! Thank you! I love my smile!

The staff treated me and my brother (who was getting braces for a second time) like family. The ambiance of the office is so vibrant and inviting. The front desk immediately greets you by first name and offers any type of refreshments. The doctors also greet you with a warm welcome right when you walk in. The stations are very clean and not cluttered at all. Putting on the braces was not a tedious process as they used custom fit braces that molded to your teeth immediately. I was able to eat solid food within a couple of days. The staff made sure that the brackets were maintained at every checkup and were also very speedy at the checkups. They use innovative tools to make the process more streamlined and painless. They are also very flexible with their appointment times. If you need to cancel last minute, they will make sure to schedule another date immediately and will follow-up via text and calls as well. They are also very accommodating to my brother’s college schedule as he goes to go school in NorCal. Overall, the staff is professional and I would recommend this place to anyone. Dr. D and the rest of the staff have changed my future because I have a straighter smile. If you don’t believe me, look at my before and after to see for yourself!

I couldn’t give a higher review for a dental/ortho office! The entire staff at Newport-Mesa are like family! They are all incredibly professional and so friendly. Not only that, but their services are the best I have ever received in dental and ortho care, truly! Dr. Skuben and Hope have the newest tech that makes the procedures so smooth, easy, and painless. Dr. Agarwal is also the sweetest, coolest dentist I have ever met! You never sit around waiting for long like at other offices I have been to. Even my wisdom teeth removal surgery was SO fast and painless and I felt so taken care of. Dr. Skuben even used this infra-red healing technology that speeds up recovery and it totally worked wonders. My friends and family were shocked at how fast I looked normal (within just a few days!). Thank you Newport-Mesa staff for all your wonderful work and dedication!

I started my journey 2 years ago to get braces on. I was a little hesitant because I was almost 40 at the time making the decision to get braces. I have been coming here for 2 years and I have had an amazing experience. Everybody here from Dr. D to all the rest of the staff treated me with care and were extremely gentle with my treatment. I’m coming to the end of my treatment and I’m actually going to be sad to not come here for my monthly adjustments. I would highly recommend coming here for any dental or orthodontic work! 🙂

B R. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great Experience! Best Quality of Professional Care! Everyone is very kind, friendly, and very professional. A very family friendly dentist and orthodontist office. We are so thankful we have found Dr. Skuben and Dr. D! Our family was searching for a dentist office that would meet all our dental and orthodontist needs and we found it! They are very caring and informative and really take time to explain and truly care about your teeth. They are wonderful!! The staff is so kind, extremely helpful & sincere and just wonderful!! Our entire family feels extremely comfortable and at ease and knows we are in the best care at Newport-Mesa Orthodontist and Family Dentistry.

My kids Shaheen and Sonia got their braces done here and their teeth have come out absolutely great! Everyone here is so kind and accommodating, I’ve never had any issue with them. If my kids ever have a mishap with their braces (or anything) they will take them in right away and make sure it’s solved. My kids are very satisfied with their braces journey with them and the outcome! Will continue going to them !

Got my braces here for 2 1/2 years overall I enjoyed my experience with them they were very patient and considerate. Always made sure that I was okay with the additional procedures that I had to get done they made sure I was making good progress and addressed other dental issues that I had, after i got my braces off i was very pleased with the results and felt that the whole process was worth it.

Victor C. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great company…..  I am an adult child in charge of my parent’s wellbeing not an easy job to partake on while also raising your own family.  I called the company and Elizabeth answered the phone at which time I knew that her knowledge and understanding of my needs were at the top of the chart.   I sent my folks to the office and Martha was a wealth of information for them.  Martha informed them of their needs and was instrumental in ensuring that my parents received the service they required.  The Doctors were kind and compassionate in caring for the ones I love, thank you.  I was able to rest at ease that my parents were being taken care of by a professional, caring, and loving Dental Office

Best Orthodontist in the Newport/Costa Mesa area! First and foremost, let’s start with the office environment. The office is very clean and welcoming. The examination rooms have these beautiful wallpapers and lovely lights on the ceilings that make you feel at ease. The staff is very kind and courteous. Now let’s talk about the professionals. Dr. Divya is the sweetest person in the whole world and to put the cherry on top of the cake, she attended Columbia University’s College of Dental Medicine (Ivy League), so she really knows her stuff. My son and I both needed braces and Dr. Divya laid out a comprehensive plan for each of us. I explained my goals and she helped me achieve those goals using a calculated approach. Moreover, I knew my son needed palatal expansion and I didn’t even have to tell her, she knew right away and she laid out a plan to improve his smile and facial posture. In the past I always dreaded going to the dentist, but Dr. D and her staff were always so wonderful and welcoming that I always looked forward to our visits. I will continue coming back here for all my dental needs!

Adam Z. from Renton, WA (Source: Yelp)


Absolute best in class! Both my wife and I had middle-age orthodontics done here and the level of care is top-tier. We’ve been dental patients of Dr. Skuben here for years, and finally went for Dr. Agawal for ortho and couldn’t be happier with the results. One of us was Invisalign and the other traditional braces. A fantastic Costa Mesa business!

Kirk P. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

Dr. Agarwal is fantastic! She was very thorough in every visit. Her team, Victor and Martha are also very well trained. They made my appointments very easy. She was also super understanding how soon that I wanted to accomplish this braces journey. She made it happen in time!! I am very happy with my smile and i thank her for treating small cavities that had built during the time I had braces on. I highly recommend her place for you!!

I came in to Dr. Dyvya to get braces on my bottom teeth. I had braces as a child but my teeth had shifted again so I wanted to get them fixed. The team here is great and very helpful. They send out text message reminders for appointments which is very helpful with my busy and constantly changing schedule. They worked with me on pricing and were able to give me clear braces for a price I could afford– making monthly payments. I just got my braces removed today after 5 months of treatment and my teeth look great! They gave me a permanent retainer on my bottom teeth so my teeth will not shift again. I am very happy with my results and would recommend Newport- Mesa Orthodontics to any child or adult.

Kaitlyn P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is AMAZING!! They have all of the most up to date high tech equipment and on top of that, literally the most friendly and fun staff you’ll ever meet! I got a wisdom tooth out last summer at this spot and they were really awesome about seeing me for multiple follow up visits when it was having a challenge healing properly. I also have been here for several teeth cleanings! HOPE IS THE BEST DENTAL HYGIENIST EVER!!! Literally. She is friendly, holds great conversation, and really cares for your smile! If I could give Hope 100 stars, I would!

I came here about a year ago.I am so happy I came here. I got a filling, 2 crowns, and braces for a year, which sounds miserable but everyone here made me so comfortable and easy. I love that at every stage all my questions were answered and that everyone here was kind and caring and always listened. Walking out today with straight, white beautiful teeth.

My son got braces a little over a year ago and they’re ready to come off. His teeth look perfect! We looked at another Orthodontist but my son, 13 at the time and myself liked that Dr. Divya Agarwal explained the process in detail where even he felt comfortable with her and getting braces. Her prices were very competitive as well. Dr. Agarwal and her staff have been amazing making us comfortable through this process. She’ll be our go to orthodontist as long as we need one. Thank you Newport-Mesa Orthodontist!

I do not recall exactly how I found Newport Mesa Orthodontics but I can say I am thankful I followed the path that led me to the beginning of my transformational journey. I got my braces, what most people would consider, late. I had been to other Orthodontist’s in the past but I would leave the office feeling worse! My case was very rare and I knew this as an adolescent. I was told time and time again by “professionals” that my smile will not ever be perfect even with the recommended procedures. I was given estimates that seemed completely out of reach, I was even rejected by some that just were not up for the challenge. I casted my insecurities aside and went on with my life, I vowed to never let my insecurities keep me down- and I didn’t to a certain point but it was that wall I kept hitting that wasn’t quite letting me live my life fully. Seems a bit dramatic now since finding Dr. Agarwal. From the beginning she brainstormed her ideas and assured me she can get the job done… and she did in less than the estimated time we anticipated! It was not the easiest first step I have ever taken but I had a team that was motivating, enthusiastic and excited to deliver! Thank you Newport Mesa Orthodontics- you have been my angels! Thank you for your encouragement and patience. Thank you for working with me along the way and thank you for finding joy in my happiness- I could not have asked for more. I am forever thankful and will forever be your patient. I am proud of myself. No matter what, why, where, when- looking back everything fell into place perfectly. I speak to the person out there, just like me- reading through EVERY single review for reassurance to move forward on treatment or to the person who needs an excuse to back out (you will not find it here). Your excuses are up… congratulations! Let your journey be as beautiful as mine was.
