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!!

Wow! Dr. Skuben is hands down the best dentist I have ever seen in my 27 years – and I have been to A LOT of dentists. He took the time to sit down and thoroughly explain to me everything that I needed done and the reasons why as well as the options I had for the treatments needed. I have no dental insurance and he was very understanding of that and was able to set me up with a realistic and doable payment plan. All in all – I have found my dental practice and could not be happier!!

Dr. Skuben & his team are the best! He’s passionate about his work, he does a fantastic job, he uses the most current technology & their office is really cool looking. They really care about theirs patients, I had called & left a message on a Saturday afternoon after I broke part of my tooth & they called me back immediately & gave me an emergency appoint for that same day. I was shocked & very impressed. I highly recommend Dr. Skuben.

Addie C. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough about how great this place is. I have been afraid of dentists my entire life. I realize it’s completely irrational but, nevertheless, I am terrified to walk through the door. Because of my fear I haven’t been to a dentist in quite some time. Today, that all changed. I got the feeling my life wouldn’t end when I walked in to the comfortable waiting room and was greeted by the cheery receptionist. I could see back into where the offices were located and it was clean and organized. I was prepared for a painful experience but received the exact opposite. The staff is professional and the environment is calming. The tools used are up to date and Dr. Skuben made me feel at ease.

Megan D. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I’ve been a patient here for a little over a year and it’s been a pleasure being their patient. They’re so accommodating to my schedule and they make sure I leave feeling happy and satisfied with the dental and orthodontic work. My smile gets better and better with each visit and I can’t wait to see the final product! I definitely recommend this place to anyone and everyone who wants to improve their smile and make sure that their dental hygiene is on point!!

He is the best dentist I have ever used. Very hi tech and personable. Trained in the latest procedures and utilizing the latest equipment. I was looking for an implant. It is almost impossible to find someone who is competent and reasonably priced since there are so many places doing this procedure. I spent literally hours researching it. Based on a recommendation from a friend I chose Dr. Skuben. I am so happy with the results that now I am using him as my regular dentist. I cannot give him enough praise.

Zakiyya P. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


First of all, this place looks amazing. The office is clean, modern, and relaxing. They’ve got games, magazines, and even things to do for young children. The receptionist at the front was helpful and served us right away. She was even nice enough to help search for my dental insurance because I literally for the life of me could not remember.
In terms of the actual experience the doctor went above and beyond. He is a natural people-person and shows genuine care and concern. Both my mom and brother also love this place. Definitely will be recommending to my family and friends!

Nicole G. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Skuben is such an awesome dentist! He is very nice, patient, and gentle. His office has very beautiful pictures of the beach/ocean. It’s a nice and calming feeling being there as much as it can be for the dentists office. They have new up-to-date equipment and technology. If you are looking for a great dentist you should give this place a shot!

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.

Haylee W. from Meridian, ID (Source: Yelp)


(Doctor) Peter was fantastic… Some how be continues to amaze me with his skills. I have been suffering from a tooth ache for a week and do ally couldn’t take it anymore and called the dr on Halloween night at 5 and then answered! Got me in ASAP and in less then 30 mins the pain and my wisdom tooth was gone! I cousins believe how fast the whole process was. Peter is amazing I will continue to refer all my friends and family to them!

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


Another great visit!! I love all the James Bond style tools that this place has the offer. Today we took a three-dimensional video of my mouth and then after we were done I got to take a look at my mouth and jaw bone in a three-dimensional format, it was awesome!

I broke an older crown and today Dr. Peter fixed it. I did not feel the Novacaine shot at all. When I say not at all I mean not at all.I was in and out in about 40 minutes and I’ll be back on Thursday to get my permanent crown to be talked.

The price was more than fair and the service was excellent. The staff is very family oriented and I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love this place.

Melissa D. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Skuben is awesome & so is his staff.  I chipped a tooth on a Saturday afternoon & left a message on their voicemail hoping to get in Monday morning and was stunned that I received a call back within an hour and they came in on a Saturday to fix it.  I was thrilled. He uses all the latest technology & does great work.  You won’t be disappointed.

Lauren B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Skuben is amazing!! I’ve moved around a lot and have unfortunately had to find several different dentists in my life and Dr. Skuben is hands down the best dentist I have ever had! He was extremely thorough and spent a lot of time going through high tech photos and x-rays of my teeth with me. Hope – the hygienist was extremely friendly and super knowledgeable and helped me understand all kinds of reasons why flossing is so important (not that I didn’t know already) but she explained it in a way where I was really motivated to floss haha! So funny but she was amazing and I’m sooo grateful that I found this amazing office!! The receptionist – Sarah was also very sweet. All around this place is fantastic and I would recommend it to anyone looking for a new dentist!

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.

Giselle Marlo (Source: Facebook)


I highly recommend this practice. Both of my children received their braces here and I have shopped places based on focus, product, and price. The Doctor sees you every time versus an assistant at other places. Very personable practice. Beautiful teeth and happy children!

Brittney Stauffer (Source: Facebook)


Newport-Mesa Orthodontics & Family Dentistry has an amazing team they are all so friendly and are very dedicated to their patients! I’m so happy I went here for my braces and crowns my teeth look incredible and I get so many compliments!!

David S. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


(Doctor) Peter has helped me many times with my nasty teeth. He has repaired two crowns of mine after root canals destroyed the teeth. He has also put two new crowns on my molars. He is very concerned dentist. I highly recommend him and his wife.

Everyone at the office is warm and welcoming, making the entire experience a breeze. I usually have anxiety with dentist offices as I have had very bad experiences in the past, but I am always well taken care of here.
There is never a doubt that everyone always has MY best interest in mind, so I can trust what they say and do.
It also helps that all the equipment and technology is advanced, I’d never seen half the things in that office before coming the first time!
Dr. Skuben is the best in every way, and Hope and Sarah are as well! I have nothing but good things to say.

After our long-time family dentist died last year, we were referred to Dr. Skuben. Let me tell you, folks, he is amazingly good. I have never met a dentist who is totally up-to-date on the latest technology, both in dentistry AND in all categories. His skills and knowledge are unquestioned, and he surely must of passed the dentistry school course in “Chairside Manner.” His staff is professional and friendly, and his office environment is like a visit to a serene aquarium or avery. Oh, and in case you are wondering, he is reasonable and fair when it comes to fees, etc.

You get the picture? It is too bad all dentists can’t measure up the high standards that Dr. Skuben follows. When it comes time to decide who your new dentist will be, your choice of Dr. Skuben will be a no-brainer.

Mario F. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience! The staff was always friendly and courteous.  They are very flexible with scheduling and always managed to accommodate my hectic schedule.  The pricing was very competitive and I would highly recommend them.  I owe many thanks to these people for my perfect smile.

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


Best Dentist office around. The office staff is extremely nice and helpful. The dentist is extremely gentle, has the newest most amazing technology, but also teaches me something new about caring for my teeth and gums every visit. He also gives recommendations of fun family events around town that him, his wife and daughter enjoyed that my family can enjoy as well. The whole staff truly goes above and beyond!!! Highly recommended!!!

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


For those of you looking for a new dentist or just wanting to change to a better dentist… this is the best place ever!!! I have moved around a lot out of state so have been to a number of different dentist and I have always left dissatisfied or ripped off. But now I am a happy patient. My husband, myself, and my 2 kids have been coming here for about 4 years now and we have all been so happy. I have never been treated so personally anywhere else like I have here. They make you feel like family. If I ever move out of state, I will continue coming here. That says a lot! They also do orthodontic here too so that makes it extremely convenient with my kids!!! It’s ran by a husband and wife that are the friendliest people that you will ever meet.

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.

Dr Skuben and team has done a wonderful job for our family. From emergency work and orthodontics for my son to completely reshaping my bite to ensure I can now properly chew food. Dr Skuben makes patient care and comfort the top priority, taking the time to get everything just right. I give him and the team the highest possible recommendation for new patient

Been going here since 2014 and have never had one complaint. With a family of 5 and two sets of braces, this is our family dentist without a question. This office is a no brainier for both adults and children.

I’ve known (partner dentist) 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. 🙂

Chad P. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone at Newport-Mesa Orthodontics is awesome! I have been coming here for five years for teeth cleaning and just finished orthodontic treatment. Dr. Skuben, (orthodontist), Hope, and Victor are very friendly and helpful. I never wait long to be seen and everyone knows my name. Recommend for anyone who needs great dental and ortho care.

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!

Judith C. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place!! They are very helpful . I had my first wisdom tooth extraction here and it was actually a very good experience. no complications. I also had a crown placed somewhere else and complications with it. The dentist here was able to figure it out and I can finally chew on that side. best dentist ever!!

Jill O. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am the biggest fan of Newport Mesa Orthodontics and Family Dentistry!  Dr. Skuben the BEST dentist for families!  He is by far the most amazing, talented, gentle and honest dentist I have ever encountered.  He does not push unnecessary dental x-rays or fluoride treatments – which I appreciate beyond belief.  My daughter, who is now 5, first visited Dr. Skuben back in April 2014.  She was terrified of visiting the dentist, and it took a lot of prep work to get her to go.  Not only did Dr. Skuben and his team make my little one feel completely comfortable, Dr. Skuben was a complete goofball (in a good way!) and even had me cracking up!  He blew-up a glove to make it look like Mickey’s hand, and thoroughly explained all of the dental equipment, how it all worked and the step-by-step process of the exam so my daughter would feel comfortable.  And most importantly, my little one received an A+ cleaning and exam.  Even though Dr. Skuben can be silly for kids, he is an expert & professional when it matters most.  We adore him and his practice.  Also, if you do not have dental coverage, their prices are extremely reasonable. Highly, highly recommend!!!

The Newport-Mesa Orthodontics and Family Dentistry are responsible for my beautiful smile makeover, or as my friends say, her “million dollar smile.” You can trust their work; they are honest, dependable, & they want you to look beautiful. They get 10 Stars!!

Mary Fahey-Goldberg (Source: Facebook)


I have been seeing Dr Skuben for more than 2 years and have had excellent care. I have always been afraid of seeing a dentist but he puts me at ease every time. I highly recommend him.

Cristina Serna (Source: Facebook)


As usual, I had a great appointment with Dr. Skuben. Prompt service, personal attention. Love this place! Newport-Mesa Orthodontics and Family Dentistry has an excellent dentist whose main priority is making sure his patients are comfortable and get the best dentistry he can offer.

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


The best place in orange county for all of your dental needs. From ortho to implants to regular cleanings. The atmosphere is very zen here. You instantly feel a wave of calm come over you when you walk in. Staff is very kind and helpful. Both Dr’s are highly qualified and genuinely kind and compassionate. They have all cutting edge equipment and top notch service.  No need for anxiety here. My grand daughter and I are super grateful to be a patient here.

Dr. Peter Skuben shows great interest in his patients and makes the visit very pleasant. He has the latest technology in his equipment which makes dental cleaning and implants a more efficient process. I feel very confident in recommending him to others.

Orthodontist Dr. Divya Agarwal and dentist Dr. Peter Skuben work together to make your total oral care convenient and rewarding. Our doctors and capable staff work to provide a family-oriented, individualized care experience where everyone knows you by your first name. Dr.Peter Skuben was born in Czechoslovakia during a time when the iron curtain ran across Europe and separated communist Eastern Block from the freedom in the West. His family escaped communist Czechoslovakia when he was 10 and eventually resettled in California. After finishing highschool he majored in Electrical Engineering. While working for Raytheon on the Joint Strike Fighter jet F35 he learned many hight tech skills that would later become invaluable in deploying the latest dental technology. After a few years, Dr.Skuben quit Raytheon to pursue a new career in Dentistry. He graduated from the University at Buffalo Dental School and immediately started taking advanced courses to expand and sharpen his skills. My goal is to provide the best patient experience with the latest dental technology in a friendly family atmosphere. Technology advances have made dentistry a very visual profession. We live in an exciting time for dentistry where a lot of new technologies are slowly crossing over from other industries. It is for this reason that I’m always attending both Dental and Dental Lab conventions several times a year to anticipate what is coming around the corner. I invite you to stop by and chat about what the future holds for dentistry!
