My husband & I are new patients of Ocean View Dental Care. I found their office through my insurance, located their wonderful website online, and then placed a call to their office to get a sense for the culture there. Their website gave a true picture of who these amazing, collaborative, joyful people are, their receptionist had me at hello! They were completely congruent with their online message. Both the website & receptionist made me feel almost like old friends! Warm, supported, comfortable & safe! I run a crazy schedule & much to my surprise, Dr Higgins has a policy to be on time for His patients…no waiting!!! I can do this! Several visits later, I have a beautiful new smile for the New Year, and my Husband is well on his way, too! After insurance, my initial care was surprisingly affordable! How great! Years ago, a celebrity, Irvine Dentist made me feel badly about my teeth and would not touch me for less than a fortune! What a difference! Dr. Higgin’s work is amazing & I’ve never felt better about my smile and the care we have received! He, and his wonderful staff gave us the best Christmas gift ever…two beautiful new smiles, great friendships and lot’s to smile about!

I love this practice!  We moved to San Clemente in early 2017 and I selected Ocean View Dental based on proximity and their professional appearance. The staff has won me and my family over with their friendliness, courtesy and attention to detail.  I have not had to wait past my appointment times and they are very efficient.  I would highly recommend!

I love Ocean View Dental!! They have the kindest office staff. They have never kept me waiting for my appointment. Their hygienist removed serious stains from my son’s teeth that previous dentists told me he’d have to live with. They are professional and never try to “up sell”. I’ve referred several friends and they are equally as happy. I can’t recommend them enough!

As someone new to San Clemente and in need of dental work, I searched thru many reviews of nearby dental practitioners. One review said that Ocean View Dental Care was the nearest thing to a Zen experience that they had experienced at the dentist… I Agree!… OVDC is awesome!… Dr Higgins and his team, the entire practice…all top notch! Thank You!, I love my new smile! You guys are the BEST dental care I’ve ever had & I will forever be thankful that I chose Ocean View Dental Care!!

I left my previous dentist after a number of years to join the Ocean View Affordable Dental Care Plan, and I am glad I did! I do not have insurance and their plan is better than any insurance plan I have found. After a few visits to Ocean View Dental Care I am sold on their quality and attention to every detail. They have all the latest and greatest technology, but best of all is the staff actually cares about their patients. Everyone I have dealt with has been first class and very friendly. I am actually looking forward to my next dental check up.

Dr. Higgins and his whole staff are amazing and very professional. I had a lot of work done before my surgery. I never felt any pain from the many shots i had, the deep cleaning or my crown. I would highly suggest OVDC. They definitely treat you like part of their family. Looking forward to my next visit. My husband and I are extremely satisfied we have found our new dentist.

Hands down the best dental care I have ever received, amazing customer service and friendly staff, excellent dental work, and I am super stoked on their whitening as well! If you are looking for a dentist in San Clemente, this is the place!

Probably the best dentist experience I’ve had. Dr. Higgins, Kathleen and the rest of the staff are fun, considerate, thorough and smart. I’ve recommended them to other friends and now do it publicly to you.

Best Dentist Experience ever for my 3 year old! We have tried a few different dentist in town a couple times and both times my son ran out crying afraid:( I was scared he would do the same here but no! He absolutely loved it!! The staff and the dentist were all so nice and kid friendly made my 3 year old son dentist experience one to remember! He was so happy to let his dad know how fun the dentist was and show him all the goodies he received including toothbrushes, toothpaste, floss and even toys from their cute treasure chest 🙂 I truly honestly do recommend Ocean View Dental Care to everyone looking for a great dentist experience for themselves and their families:)
Thank you Ocean View Dental Care For today’s visit with my 3 year old Monti we will be back in 6 months:)

Ocean view dental completely changed the way I felt about going to the dentist. Dentist trips used to make me stressed & fill me with anxiety but that all changed when I met their staff. I have never felt more comfortable in a dentist chair in my WHOLE LIFE! From Jackie at the front desk, their manager Monica, Dr. Higgins, Geni, and my amazing hygienist Kathleen, this was by far the easiest experience I’ve had. They were all so friendly and explained everything so well. Thank you all!

Honestly, no pain felt when getting a shot of Novocain yesterday. I can do thick needles in my arm when giving blood, no problem. But needles in my mouth?  Running for the hills. So I was very pleased to feel no pain yesterday. And the staff is awesome, every single one of them.

I was ruined at an early age by bad dental experiences and although I take excellent care of my teeth, I absolutely dread going to the dentist for even a cleaning. Today, I had the most unbelievable cleaning ever – unbelievable that it was such a comfortable experience. Kathleen has the gentlest touch of any dental hygienist I’ve ever worked with. She specializes in dental anxiety and has excellent bedside manners. It was the closest thing to a Zen experience I’ve ever had in a dental chair. And, no, there was no nitrous involved! Seriously, I usually squirm and flinch a lot during cleanings due to sensitivity but I was totally relaxed the entire time just waiting for the pain that never came. I simply can’t say enough about Kathleen’s skills. This was my second visit to Ocean View Dental and will certainly be back. I hesitated to write this review because I don’t want her to get so busy I can’t get in.

Great customer service, friendly staff and as a patient without dental insurance you cannot beat their in-house dental plan. It has been a life saver for our family! Thank you for taking such great care of us! I really feel our business is valued.

Clean and professional environment, friendly staff and what seemed like up to date equipment in a beautiful office. Had a great initial visit, ocean view was accommodation to my rigid work schedule and straight forward regarding my dental needs. Looking forward to the dental cleaning in a few weeks.

This place is awesome! I have had to get quite a bit of dental work over the last few weeks and I do not feel anxious or nervous coming here at all. They have a great team who is extremely friendly and caring. I will always choose Ocean View Dental for all of my dental needs.
