Excellent dentistry in O.C.!!!! Dr. Basem and the hygienists are the finest professionals in the area. Mady never let me forget the appointment, sometimes I don’t reply the phone but she never gives up on me! They’re very good at explaining all procedures. Prices are very competitive and you get high quality. O.C. Smile Dental is highly recommended on my part. Me and my daughter get all of our dental work done there. I have gone through many dentists and I’m happy I finally found one that I will continue seeing for a very long time.

I have been a patient of Dr. Airood for more than 10 years. Dr. Airood is kind, gentle, patient and a very good listener. Dr. Airood worked on my crown to my front tooth and was very patient with me knowing how picky I can be when it came to my smile. He recommended a great Orthodontist for my braces and was very gentle when it came time for my teeth cleaning while wearing them. He always greets me with a big smile and a hand shake and ask how I’m doing. He takes his time, answers questions and provides healthy advice. I have recommended him to my parents, siblings and friends and will continue to highly recommend him. He is a great Dentist and he takes pride in his work.

Dr. Airood is the best dentist around. He is extremely knowledgeable and professional. His staff is very friendly and helpful. His office is super clean and upscale. I’d rate it 10 stars if I could!!

Sara S. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Airood and his staff are amazing. Normally, who wants to go to the dentist?! Nobody right! Well Dr. Airood has been my dentist for several years and he is so kind, gentle, and extremely thorough. The amount of care that he gives his patients is on different than any dentist I have ever been to. I have referred my family, friends, and even co workers to him. He is the best!

Rami M. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit and I was a little nervous to try a new dentist since i was not very lucky with the previous dentists I have, what I can honestly say that this office including the staff and the amazing dr. Basem well deserve a five star. The office look classy and super clean, they make you feel comfortable. This is the first time I meet dr Basem and i can certainly see myself going back. I am also sending my family to this office. Thank you very much Madi and thank you very much Dr. Basem.

I have been visiting OC smile dental since 2018 and I would say they are the best team I ever met.
Dr. Basem Airood did my crown and fillings .He was very precise and quick.He really cares about his patients and recommends only the apt treatment.
The front desk receptionist Maddy is very friendly and she works with your schedule to make appointments.
She makes sure to let you know all the coverage and costs for the treatment well in advance.
My husband too did his yearly cleaning and checkup here.
Overall I would recommend this dental office for their outstanding services.

Nigar F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I HATE going to the dentist…but this has been the only dentist I have ever been to in my entire life who is responsible for giving me a positive experience!  He is extremely knowledgeable, professional, and gentle.  My elderly parents go to him, my siblings, my husband, and even my nephews see this dentist.  He is the only dentist I can recommend!

Fariba F. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Airood has been my dentist for over 5 years. In my opinion he is one of the best dentists in Orange County.  Knowledgeable and professional . His staff very nice and customer service oriented.  My entire family are the patient of Dr. Airood. I highly recommend!

J. B. from Pittsburgh, PA (Source: Yelp)


This is absolutely my favorite dentist ever. Dr. Airood is able to make you feel at home and at ease. I think that is extremely hard to achieve as I’m sure a lot of people don’t like going to dentists. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. Every time I make an appointment, I am seen in less than 5 min.
Dr. Airood is the best in regards to a dentist who always wants to help you unlike most dentists these days. I love that I’m always explained everything that’s being done to my teeth in detail which is also very important to me.

Cathy G. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr. Basem Airood and staff are the best! Dr. Basem Airood is so gentle and explains everything so well. I’m usually terrified of needles and dentist but he has made me feel so comfortable. Once you call to make your appt. Maddy will make sure to call you to confirm the appt. she’s super friendly too! Office is nice and clean and they will not make you wait! Definitely recommend this dental office!

Mona A. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bassim has been my doc for 6 years. I couldn’t ask for a better dentist. I have got my teeth cleaned many times, he does a great job. Your teeth stays white and clean for a while. I have tried other dentists, a couple of days and your teeth goes back to the way it was. Also, I got a root canal, fillings for some of my teeth and molars and a chip on my front tooth fixed all with Dr. Bassim! He is amazing if anyone is looking for a great dentist that does a fantastic job on your teeth. All the staff members are really friendly they make you feel like family and welcomed.

Ahmed A. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bassam is a very professional and an excellent in what he does. My family and I, have been going to his clinic for the past 4 years for different things (like cleaning,removing  wisdom tooth, crowns etc) and every time I go I come out pleased and happy. His staff are super friendly and they keep the clinic clean and tidy. I give him 10 out of 10 for his overall work and for his efficiency. I’d definitely recommend him to anyone.

Mayra L. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just got out OC Smile Dental and by far it was the best dentist experience I’ve had. I have visited many offices before so have a lot experience at the dentist. I love that all the staff is very welcoming and very comfortable environment. Dr. Basem Airood was also very comforting and explained everything in a way that is easy to understand. I will come back again, and recommend this dentist office to anybody in the area that is looking for a dentist !  
They are also amazing with children. My two kids were seen and they also had an amazing experience. They were not scared d or nervous at all, may I add this was their first time at the dentist. Thank you OC Smile Dental team.

Ali E. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Airood is exceptional at what he does. Very friendly, patient and always explains the process step by step. I just had my wisdom tooth extracted by him and after all the horror stories I had heard I was very concerned. It was a walk in the park. Incredible work! Office is modern and exceptionally clean and the staff is awesome! Would def recommend!

Irina T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family been coming to OC Smile Dental since 2014 and we couldn’t be happier. My kids love gentle and fun approach and actually like their teeth being checked. Dr Airood is very gentle and careful.
The front office is ver clean and modern. Staff is very helpful and nice. I highly recommend this dental office!

Dr. Bassem is amazing. My family has been coming here for years and we have no intention of ever changing dentists! He communicates great, very honest, works with you and explains everything you need to do to get your teeth and gums healthy. For awhile I had really bad gums before coming here and my prior dentists never really helped me understand but between a few deep cleaning sessions and really following his instructions my gums never bleed when I brush. He and his staff are fantastic.

Kriti P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I first visited OC Smile Dental almost a year ago when I found that my gum was always bleeding and it was the best decision I have ever made. Dr. Airood is very kind and honest and you can see that he’s super experienced. My gum has become much better now. The location, atmosphere of the clinic and more importantly, the entire staff of OC Smile Dental makes me happy that I chose the best dental service in Irvine. Highly recommended!

Absolutely amazing office! The doctor was so professional and made me feel very comfortable and at home. I had at least 17 teeth pulled and didn’t feel a thing! I have full dentures and absolutely love them … and I’ve had nothing but compliments about them. I come back all the time just to say hi!

Tim B. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to work 1 block away from OC Smile Dental in 2011 so this was a very convenient location. That’s when I met Dr. Airood and his team (Chris, and Cindy). Now I am driving there from south Orange County, and would not trust my, and my wife’s teeth, to anyone else. The doctor is very patient, knowledgeable, and gives clear instructions. One thing that I found extremely different from other dentists is the TVs that are playing Food Network as if to remind us why we need to keep our teeth healthy (but ask Chris and he might give you a real reason.) 🙂

Lamar T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just got my teeth done because i had an accident 13 years ago i was so embarrassed and insecure smiling and now i can’t stop smiling and i have been a loyal customer to this office for years for a reason! I am really picky about a lot of things and have trust issues but i trust this office with my life!!! best dentist i’ve had, his work is phenomenal!!  The staffs is also astounding as well they all work very hard to make sure you leave the office with a huge smile on your face.

Jennifer Sawyer Carlsson (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Airood is so kind and caring and does excellent work. He is patient and takes his time to explain everything he is doing. I surprisingly feel very relaxed there. His front desk did a great job getting me in to see him as soon as they had a cancellation. I was so grateful because I lost a filling that was done before he was my DDS.

Ashlee S. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


First off I would like to say thank you to Dr. Airood for doing an awesome job on my bridge. I had a broken bridge that had fell out (had been 3 years & was afraid to go back to the dentist that had put it in) and it needed to be replaced. The work he did is phenomenal!!! I can’t thank him enough.  Was my first time coming to OC Smile Dental and I can honestly say this is the only dental office I will ever go to. I have been terrified of the dentist for many years due to a bad experiences, but Dr. Airood has changed that for me and I am very appreciative of everything he and his team has done for me. He constantly asked if I was ok and made sure I was not feeling any pain & explained everything in detail about the procedure. The customer service was awesome. Right from the moment you walk in you’re treated like family. Dr. Airood has given me my smile back.

Dr Basem has been my Doctor for the last 5 years. He is very experienced, knowledgeable and respectful and I recommend him to everyone.

Karen Q. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not gonna lie: this was probably the best dentist experience I’ve ever had. I used to hate thinking about going to the dentist (who doesn’t?), but after today, I’m actually looking forward to my next cleaning (can’t believe I just said that). Getting my teeth cleaned and x-rays were painless compared to my past experiences.

The entire staff is amazing and so nice! Dr. Airood was very patient with me and my questions, and I didn’t feel like he was rushing with me at all. The office is really clean, and their equipment is very modern. I took a chance on this place and didn’t regret it at all. I highly recommend OC Smile Dental! 🙂

Cathy Z. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Basem Airood is amazing I have been going to Dr Airood for about one year when one day my bridge came loose in my mouth. The bridge was over 20 years old and needed replacement. Dr Airood had to take precautions to save what little was left of my teeth under the bridge. His expertise save the teeth and was able to attach the new bridge. He is one of the kindest dentist I have ever meet and he explains everything to you! He even gives advice ( and samples) of what to use on your teeth!! He is truly amazing!! Also Chis the hygienist is the best I have ever had clean my teeth. Cindy who works the front desk and does appointments is the sweetest and she go’s out of her way to  check insurance for you. I am so happy to have found such an excellent dentist and staff!   It should be rated 10 stars!!

Dr Airood is so Amazing!
He does a great job and he’s the nicest human ever ! I never felt any pain while getting my root canal or cavities ! Also he does a great job with timing. Receptionist is really helpful ,
She got the appointment which works the best.
Thank you OC Smile ! I’ll always come back to you guys.

Claudia I. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dentist. He replaced several of my old crowns and bonded a front tooth that had a chip. He was always extremely kind, patient, and soothing. I, like many people, have dental anxiety and he made me feel so at ease. The new crowns are so much better and I have no more pain from my old ill-fitting ones. And the bonded tooth came out perfectly. I would highly recommend this dentist to anyone. I’m only sad that my insurance no longer covers them.

Tiffany H. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


OC smile is amazing! I’ve been coming here for 5 years and the staff is awesome and always friendly, Maddy is one that always helps me and works around my busy schedule! Dr. Airood does a great job at making my teeth look amazing as I have needed a lot of work. Thank you guys for everything you do!

Monica P. from City of Industry, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Airood is professional and knowledgeable. He takes time to answer every question and concern I have and even helps me save money on treatments without compromising the quality of his work. I have been his patient since 2010 and during my each visit there I always hear other patients complimenting Dr. Airood. Awesome Dr., upscale office, friendly & helpful staff, I definitely love it here!!!!

Tammy C. from Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Basem Airood is amazing. He has been my family’s dentist for over five years and everyone’s smile and the health of our gums and teeth have drastically improved. Before I started coming to his practice, I was embarrassed to smile my big smile. Now, I smile without hesitation – as much as possible. I am grateful for Dr. Airood and his amazing team. I love the quality of the care that they provide. Dr. Airood has always cared about getting my teeth healthy. Thanks to him, my teeth and gums look and feel great.  Dr. Airood and team- you are still amazing! I wish you all many blessings in this New Year.

Omair Q. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Airood for nearly a decade now  He’s a true professional. Soft-spoken, well mannered, and takes plenty of time to explain everything to you.  I’ve had numerous fillings and even a tooth pulled by him.  He’s a master at his craft.  The support staff is great as well.  I’ve never had an unreasonable wait time when I arrive for my appointments.  All the equipment is state of the art and the clinic is immaculate.  You feel a sense of confidence as soon as you walk in that you will be taken care of.

Kerry C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter and myself both were seen at this office and we had a really great experience. The office is clean and the staff is very friendly. I felt very comfortable while receiving my x-rays and I actually understood everything that they explain to me while looking at the x-rays. They were very thorough and made sure to take their time. Even when it was past closing time the receptionist made sure to explain everything to me in full detail. I am very happy that my daughter and I received such great services. If you are looking for a new dentist, your search has ended!!!

Robert M. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Airood for about 3 years now.  By far he is one of the best dentists we have ever had.  He ensures our dental work is pain free, whether a routine cleaning or a more involved procedure, and the entire staff is great!  I highly recommend OC Smile and Dr. Airood!

My first visit here has been a delightful experience.
Dr. Basem Airood is very thorough and gentle in his approach. Mady at the front desk exudes the level of care that this practice offers. Chris and Myra – dental hygienists, are equally dexterous and thoughtful.
