Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:


By far the best dental appointment I have ever been to, I had drilling and fillings done with no pain. I really suggest coming here for anything to be done, Dr. Gabot-Heyman and her assistant Yadira are very kind and professional. By far the best experience at the dentist I have ever had.


Every staff member is courteous eager to help and personable. Dr. Gabot is the most gentle and caring dentist I’ve been to, and I’m not a young man! so I’ve been to several.
Everyone here does whatever it takes to care for a patient in pain as quickly as possible, outstanding service, thank you!


Dr. Gabot and her team at Dana Point Dental is one of the best, I’ve had an extraction and teeth cleaning done there and am very pleased with their services and the results. I highly recommend Dr. Gabot and her team at Ocean Ranch Dental for all your family dental needs.


LOVED IT!! Upon arriving they gave me some papers and they talked to me as I was filling them out so when it was time for me to go on it didn’t feel like a  stranger to stranger thing. I felt very comfortable. They made sure to keep me informed with everything they were doing and explained things to me as they were going. I felt little to no pain. It’s definitely a place I will keep going to when needed (It was also my first time going  alone since I just turned 18) Dr.Gabot and the staff were so helpful. I really loved this office. I’m so glad I found them!


Dr Gabot-Heyman is a wonderful dentist. Even my, normally scared, 8 and 6-year-old daughters were at ease with her. And were quiet while she worked on them. She was able to help me even with so short a notice when I had a problem with my crown. I recommend her to all.


I’m so glad I came to see Dr. Gabot for my dental emergency. She was kind and gentle. The treatment was also conservative. Highly recommended. I also felt very safe with their COVID-19 procedures for safety.


I have been coming to this dentist office for years and I can 100% say this is my favorite place for dental work, everyone is so nice and kind, makes me feel very comfortable, I definitely recommend coming here for your teeth!


Dr. Gabot and her staff were the perfect example of friendly and professional. I needed a second opinion regarding a procedure another dentist recommended, and Dr Gabot not only fit me in right away, she gave me a much more thorough and comprehensive evaluation, explaining in detail not only additional options, but what each option would entail, cost, and the long-term outcome.  The office is in a great location, and her whole staff very knowledgeable and friendly.


Dr. Gabot is the nicest, most gentle dentist I’ve ever been to. I have been her patient since she opened her practice in Dana Point. No one enjoys dental work but she makes it as tolerable as possible. Her staff is equally personable and friendly. I appreciate that she doesn’t try to sell me on procedures I really don’t need, as others have done. Simply, the best!


Dr. Gabot and her staff are incredibly talented. Getting dental work is not often a pleasant task, however, they are very experienced and welcoming! I have been coming to this office for many years now, along with a majority of her clients, and have not a single complaint. The office is clean, comfortable, and in a great location. (…) Dr. Gabot is trustworthy and kind and I absolutely recommend coming to her practice.


Dr. Gabot is amazing! She is patient and cheerful at every visit- and my family is FULL of ‘tough customers’! She walked me through a cracked tooth and filling as an adult who’s never had a cavity before (and was being a big baby about it), has a treasure chest for the kids, and runs on time. She also works with my child (who has a lot of anxiety and sensory issues- and has gone through several dentists who were unable to work with him) patiently and calmly. Even better, she acts like that’s no big deal and all in a day’s work. Let me tell you: it’s a BIG deal for my family!


Caring and understanding. The staff and Doctor go out of there way to meet all your needs. I am very pleased with the timely service and friendly faces. I would recommend this office to my family and friends.


I went in for a teeth cleaning today and was so relieved to be in the care of Dr. Gabot. She is extremely sweet and professional and she handled me with such ginger care. I really appreciated it because I am such a wimp when it comes to the dentist. I highly recommend this her to everybody.


I recently switched to this dental office and I love it! The staff is super friendly and dr. Gabot-Heyman is super gentle which is perfect because I’m more sensitive than most. Definitely come here for all your dental needs!


Omg the best!  My boyfriend just went in and it turned out he needed more work done then expected and she didn’t blink an eye to doing the deep treatment!  Absolutely love the doctor!  She is very gentle and to the point!  Esther was so sweet in helping with appointments and insurance!  So thrilled this is our new dentist and turned out she is right next door!  Thanks guys.


Dr. Gabot-Heyman is awesome and full of Aloha.  Our 3 children, my wife and I extremely happy to have switched and found such a great dentist.  Her chair-side manners will keep you relaxed and informed.  The whole staff has also been great.  Very happy.  Aloha and mahalo nui loa!


I was looking for getting trays to whiten my teeth at home. I called several dentist in my area and was fortunate to have found ocean ranch dental. They were able to schedule an appointment for the next day. When I arrived, Esther greeted me and got me in the chair in a few moments. The technician came to do the molds. I think his name was Reagan, but not sure with speaking through a mask. He was fantastic! Very personable and turned out to be the one making the actual trays. I was shocked and delighted that they called in just a couple of hours to say I could pick them up! Other places said it would take a week. Very reasonable price and excellent, excellent service! I highly recommend this office for all your dental needs.
