I will never stop singing praises for Dr. Kuske and all of her staff. They were kind, courteous and absolutely compassionate. I had a broken tooth that was causing issues and severe anxiety around dentists and dental visits. Upon being greeted at the front – she immediately told me they were aware of it and the staff were all warned. She chatted with me for a few minutes about anxiety; her own and mine. When Lynn brought me back, she was so wonderful. She told me that she was aware of my issues and asked me thoughtful and easy to answer questions. She walked me through exactly what was happening. She encouraged me, was kind, but not condescending. When Dr. Kuske arrived, we spoke for a few minutes and I was the most at ease in the dentist I had ever been. We talked about what would be best for me. She truly catered to everything she could. I knew going in having the tooth removed was what would have to happen, she agreed. It was out in no more than 15 minutes. The numbing needle she gave me barely felt like anything. I can assure anyone who has anxiety about the dentist that this is the office for you. Go. Get your teeth done, you won’t regret it. I’ll be booking my next appointment soon.

We have been seeing Dr. Kuske for two years now.  Dr. Kuske is an excellent technical dentist, but also brings an outstanding bedside manner. She is friendly and very honest. She is not one of those dentists that want to remove every old filling or do unnecessary work. Her office is run efficiently and the entire staff is both professional and courteous. They keep you informed of any work, the cost, the insurance coverage and what your options for everything are.  On another note, we recently moved over our son, who has special needs, over from the pediatric dentist to Dr. Kuske. She made what should have been a rough transition, very easy.  He felt very comfortable with her.  This is not common for him, with any new people, let alone a dentist.  This is a pretty big deal, and not all adult dentists have this ability.  Without question, I would not only recommend her, but will also recommend her to our network of parents of special needs kids.

I visited Dr. Kuske’s office yesterday for the first time as a new patient. I was very nervous as it was my first time going to a new dentist in 20 years. Both Dr. Kuske and the dental hygienist who cleaned my teeth (Camille) were incredibly kind and open. They were very honest about cleaning procedures and walked me through my teeth Xrays to show me that my teeth looked great! I felt well-taken care I’d and treated fairly. I’ve found my new dentist!!! So grateful to Dr. Kuske and her team.

(…) I called Dr. Kuske’s office and spoke with Rosemary who asked all of the right questions upfront and scheduled an appointment for the next afternoon. I thought… well that was easy. When I arrived, I was greeted right away and after a brief wait, I was taken to the exam room to meet with Dr. Kuske. It was such a relief to finally find a doctor who spent the time to fully understand what I needed and what I wanted from my dentist.  By the time I left that evening my immediate reason for being there was taken care of and we had an action plan in place. Since then all of my follow-up visits have gone extremely well. If you are looking for a dental office that is professional, caring, knowledgeable, friendly, helpful, flexible and understanding, then I highly recommend you go see Dr. Kuske.

First time to Dr. Kuske, and couldn’t be happier.  I was a few minutes early to turn in my forms and twice was apologized for the wait.  Very friendly front office staff, the hygienist was terrific, asking if I had any issues with my teeth and taking care to answer my questions about my teeth.Dr. Kuske herself was wonderful, warm, friendly and did a fantastic job of explaining the X-Rays they took, what we were looking at, how that related to cavities, caps, etc. I would definitely recommend this to anyone looking for a new dentist.  Oh, and the late hours (…) are great for working professionals.  I made my appointment online, and they were great about texting me reminders

Nancy L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kuske and her whole office is as pleasant as going to the dentist can be.  Well run office, from reception to hygienist; to the doctor herself.   Virtually pain-free and will work with you on payments;  if you have something big going on.

Dr. Kuske is the absolute best dentist I have ever been to. I get extremely nervous sitting in dental hairs and she was gentle and was continuously making sure that I felt good and comfortable. After, a terrible last dental experience I’m happy to say I have found my new dentist. Highly recommend her to everyone.

Maggie G. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Kuske since 2010 and absolutely love her! She genuinely cares about her patients and is always as gentle as possible. When I expressed my fears about getting my teeth worked on, she was very patient and has helped me through all of my appointments.

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


Lucky for us West Sider’s that back in the day, while working really hard on her way up, we had the pleasure to have Dr. Kuske commute to us for excellent dental care, and she’s amazing! And thankfully for her, she was able to stay closer to home, and even open her very own practice! Of course, that meant we up here in LA had to then make the commute to see her, and let me tell you, she is so very worth the drive!! Thank you, Dr. Kuske & staff, you all are so amazing and simply Super!! I highly recommend Dr. Nicole Kuske, DDS, for all your dental health and needs, she rocks!!

Nicole S. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Kuske is our family dentist-she is great! She makes sure to explain everything so it’s easy to understand and is really gentle. My four-year-old son gets excited about going to the dentist because of Dr Kuske. He was a bit apprehensive when he found out it was time to visit the dentist, but after she examined him, he felt right at home. He thought it was great to see his adult teeth under the baby teeth on the X-rays. If you’re looking for a super friendly dental office with a gentle, honest dentist, Dr Kuske is the one to see!

I was in need of a dentist, since the last time I’ve gone to one is roughly over 10 years ago. I was researching and found Dr. Kuske’s practice.  After contemplating whether or not I should make an appointment. I decided to do a walk in to see if they accept new patients. Everyone in the office is super nice. That’s a plus for me. I’m all about customer service, and they all went above and beyond duty. Dr. Kuske made sure I was comfortable, and explain everything very clearly. She is a sweetheart. She really does care about my well being. I am so glad I decided to go to this practice vs. all the others.

Melissa P. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Kuske and her caring staff provide such a wonderful, personalized dental experience. Dr Kuske is so friendly and takes time with me each time I come in. She is very knowledgeable and professional but caring at the same time. Camille is a great hygienist and also makes a great effort to provide a custom experience and so friendly! Love that everyone each time I come in makes me feel welcome and cared for with my dental needs. The receptionist is also amazing! Very clean office and they are always on time, highly recommend!

Nicole S. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


My appointment with Dr. Kuske today was nothing short of EXCEPTIONAL! I’ve been in California for 3 years and I have struggled to find a dentist that I trusted and felt comfortable with. Dr. Kuske isn’t pushy and uses innovative techniques without being unconventional. She is honest and offers many options when addressing your plan of care. From the minute you’re greeted by Charlotte, the office manager you are welcomed and touched by so many friendly and compassionate personalities. Charlotte on the spot was able to answer any questions I had about my insurance coverage and upcoming appointments. Camille was my dental hygienist and I’ve already requested to see her for my next cleaning. She is knowledgeable, compassionate, warm and welcoming, and thorough in all that she does. She made my cleaning and treatment an ease.  Camille explained everything before she did it making nothing unknown. She also filled me on all that the office offers including teeth whitening and Invisalign.

Dr. Kuske is a very caring person. Her Dentistry is exceptional! Always looking out for her patient’s best interest. I highly recommend Dr. Kuske.

Cindy C. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t think anyone really likes going to the dentist, but Dr. Kuske makes the experience about as good as it’s going to get.  I can’t say enough to good things about her.  She makes you feel as though she has all the time in the world for you and she thoroughly answers every question.     She is always very friendly and kind, as is the entire staff.  Plus, she always lays out every option available for any treatment you might need- not just the most expensive one – and carefully explains the plus and minuses of each option.  You won’t be sorry if you choose her as your dentist.

Dr. Nicole Kuske! I may very well be Dr. Kuske’s ‘oldest’ patient. Really. I have known and been a patient since her USC Norris Dental School years. Dr. Nicole is a highly qualified and skilled professional with a strong patient bias. She listens attentively to patient concerns and develops patient treatment plans accordingly. I have NO reservations in recommending Dr. Kuske, colleagues, and staff. I trust fully Dr. Nicole Kuske.

For me, Dr. Nicole Kuske is the best dentist I ever met before. I went to another dentist to fix my front tooth but she didn’t do it. I was very frustrated and Dr. Nicole Fixed it. She is very professional and patient. I am so happy I found her again. My trip from Torrance to Mision Viejo was worthy. Highly recommend!

Daniel O. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are someone that’s terribly afraid of the dentist like me, this is the place to go!! I have not been to a dentist in over 10 years because I’m afraid of getting my teeth worked on. (…) I had to get a shot to numb my mouth for what they were working on for me – I honestly didn’t feel it. Dr. Kuske said “okay almost done” and I was still waiting for her to start it. I was expecting pain and discomfort at some point during my procedure, but it never came. The entire team is efficient, super friendly, and extremely talented. The end result couldn’t be better, too. Honestly, guys, don’t look any further, this is the place to go.

My first visit and I could NOT be happier! EVERYONE. In Dr. Kuske’s office is a gem! I am one of those who is deathly afraid of dentistry and the people in this office were incredibly compassionate and patient with me! After 10 years of not seeing a dentist (and I know I’m not alone here), I was very anxious about this check-up. Dr. Kuske and her staff were extremely thorough and explained everything they did and what needed to be done. I cannot recommend them enough! I have found my “forever” dentist and am overjoyed!

I’ve been going to see Dr. Kuske since 2010 and I’m so glad I found her. She’s the most gentle dentist I’ve been too and she really cares about her patients. Dr. Kuske explains everything well and is understanding of my fear of dentistry. Highly recommend!

Going to the dentist is not high on anyone’s list of fun experiences but if you are looking for a knowledgeable and caring dentist and staff, look no further. Dr. Kuske and her team of hygienists are terrific! Gentle, caring and pain-free procedures are what come to mind. You are not made to feel like a “number”; they take their time, explain the next steps and show you that not only do they like what they do but they care about making the experience as pleasant as possible. The front staff is equally amazing – Rosemary is wonderful. She followed up after the procedure to make sure everything was alright and that I was not in any discomfort. Thank you Dr. Kuske and staff for keeping a smile on my face.

I actually work in the dental industry and was referred to Dr. Kuske by my boss that’s been in the dental industry for 25 years. There’s a reason why he referred me to her. She’s great! She’s honest, kind, a great dentist, and she’s extremely smart. If you’re looking for a new dentist like I was, don’t even hesitate, just go see Dr. Kuske. I’m going to have my wife go there too. Thank you Dr. Kuske. I’m looking forward to getting the rest of my work done from you.
