Dr Kahng has been my dentist for about a year now and she is very caring and personable. She has a very gentle touch and I see her every 6 months for a cleaning. She never tries to sell me on anything that is unnecessary and my visits never incur any extra charges. Overall being a patient at this office has been seamless. The office reminds me of my appointments and Dr. never rushed through my cleanings. She only has one patient at a time and I have never even waited in the waiting room. Very refreshing compared to some of the corporate offices. Highly recommend!

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


I’ve had a bunch of bad dentist experiences, but Dr. Kahng is finally the dentist I’ve been searching for. She was so nice and explained everything really well. Neither she nor any of her staff members tried to force me into any services I didn’t actually need. This is huge. Every other dentist I’ve tried in the past six years has tried to bully me into things I don’t need (deep cleaning) or am not interested in (braces.) Dental work is never something anyone looks forward to, but I had the best experience here as far as my time with OC dentists go. Thanks, Dr. Kahng!

I had a great visit with Dr. Kahng and her assistant. After moving to the area less than a year ago, I wasn’t looking forward to trying to find a new dentist. I definitely lucked out! They were both friendly and sweet and made me feel very comfortable. I’ve always had issues with my teeth being very sensitive, but Dr. Kahng was very gentle and I didn’t have any problem at all. After the cleaning, I felt my teeth were cleaned better than any other dentist visit I can remember. I highly recommend her, and I will definitely return.

Dr. Kahng is one of the best dentists I’ve seen and I highly recommend her services. She is extremely knowledgeable and genuinely cares about her patients. After receiving my treatments, Dr. Kahng has always taken those extra steps to ensure I feel comfortable before leaving her office and she provides me with enough preventative care information so that I can keep a perfect smile.

Dental Assistant was very fun, friendly and comforting. It was nice to not wait in the lobby, they got me into the chair very quickly as soon as I walked in for my appointment. My first day I brought my paperwork filled out and we were ready to go. After the XRay, Dr K explained every procedure very clearly and gave me all my options for long term dental work. She also had good advice and made it easy to understand. She took out my old metal fillings and the new ones turned out great, only took one hour. Dr K also followed up the next day to see how I was doing. It was the perfect experience!

Dr Kahng is amazing. She is so personable and does really well with children as well.  She is upfront with fees and took my insurance (…). Her office is very serene.. She actually spends time with you instead of running around everywhere. I’d highly recommend her if you want an honest dentist.

Kyndell N. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I received a routine cleaning and my boyfriend received a deep cleaning and a cavity filling (his teeth are not the greatest). After his appointment his teeth have never looked better/cleaner. Dr. Kahng was extremely nice and inviting and the dental work was not only thorough, but painless. She knew exactly what she was doing and was good about informing me and my boyfriend of the work that was being done.

I definitely found my family dentist and sent my mom there already!

Keep up the good work Dr. Kahng!!

Hazel C. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kahng is the best dentist I’ve seen thus far. I live in West LA and I commute to her office in the OC because her service is unmatched. She is a professional but at the same time personable. She pays attention to detail and thoroughly explains her process. There is plenty of parking and her office is clean. I highly recommend her services.

(Doctor) Joyce is awesome, went in 4 a cleaning yesterday… i usually 100% hate going to the dentist but this time was great!!! I know i suck and make it difficult for whoever is doing my teeth but she has a way of explaining why she is doing everything and what she was doing and not just doing it and telling me to count to 3. Good experience actually, highly recommend, nice staff.

I had a very pleasant experience with both Dr. Kahng and the assistant. They were friendly and caring, taking enough time to do a thorough job. Dr. Kahng was very gentle with my teeth and I felt comfortable during the time there. Office was clean and inviting as well. I would highly recommend her to everyone I know.

Amra B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kahng is so amazing. Best dentist I have had, I am so happy that we moved dentists. I never wait and she always does such a good job while never hurting me.

Excellent dentist! I’m impressed with Dr. Kahng’s professionalism, her state-of-the-art equipment (ultrasonic cleaners; digital X-rays), her care in performing services, and the friendly comfortable ambiance of her clinic. She does excellent work and makes me feel comfortable while there. Highest recommendation.

Dr. Kahng is the best! I just love her personality! Most doctors brush over complex dental procedures as if i went to dental school Dr. Kahng explains complicated procedures to me in a fun way and in a language that I can understand. Im usually afraid of the dentist but she makes it a pleasurable experience. Thanks Dr. Kahng!

Patrick . from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit and I am thrilled that I chose to go to Dr. Joyce’s office.  Dr. Joyce and her team were professional, courteous and enthusiastic about making my visit as good as possible. Every detail was explained to me before any procedure and my questions were answered honestly. All options were explained to me thoroughly so I could make an informed decision on future dental work. Dr. Joyce and her team make it a pleasure to visit the dentist and I look forward to my next visit.
Highly, highly recommended.

Joseph B. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to Dr. Kahng’s office. (…) Sue, the office manager, was very helpful with arranging my appointment and mailing the necessary forms ahead of time so I could complete them at my leisure. It’s a small, well kept, modern office. I went in for a checkup and a cleaning, which was done by Dr. Kahng and Nichole her assistant. Dr. Kahng was very gentle while cleaning and scaling my teeth and took the time to explain every step of the process along the way. Their equipment is state of the art. They took x-rays before the cleaning, and Dr. Kahng walked me through them on the monitor. I found her to be extremely knowledgeable, professional and friendly, making my overall visit a pleasant one. I could see her working well with all age groups.

I love Dr. Kahng! She is an amazing dentist and I really like her dental assistant too. They are both super nice. I use to hate going to the dentist and I was with my family dentist for a really long time. I moved to the OC and the drive to my family dentist took me over an hour. I use to be really nervous and anxious seeing a dentist until I met Dr. Kahng. She explains procedures thoroughly and follows up with phone calls to make sure you are ok. On top of that, she is very flexible and allowed my 3 year old daughter stay with me while I was having a dental procedure. Dr. Kahng and her dental assistant was so sweet to her too. I feel pretty confident with my dental visits now and I am not afraid anymore. If you looking for great dentist, try Dr. Kahng. She’s awesome!

Best dentist and nicest staff ever. I used to hate going to the dentist but now I actually look forward to it. The office was very high tech which I appreciated. I’m glad they took my insurance. Glad to have found my dentist for life!

Beautiful office with an amazing, intelligent dentist. Dr. Kahng is very precise and detail-oriented. Staff is also very caring and they make you feel comfortable when everyone knows the dentist’s office is probably the least comfortable place one can think of. Highly recommend this office to anyone searching for one in the area!

Katie L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an amazing experience coming to Dr. Kahng and the rest of her staff was also amazing!!! Dental work can feel a little awkward and nerve racking but right away everyone was super warm and welcoming and I always felt comfortable and taken care of! She’s extremely gentle and takes her time with you and is very attentive to anything you need or request! I felt so relaxed and my nerves were put to rest right away. I came in for a teeth whitening before a very important audition! It happened to by my first time ever doing a teeth whitening by a dentist and she was very informative about the process and what I should expect! I was beyond pleased by the results and went into my audition with a lot of confidence knowing that my smile would stand out! Highly highly recommend this practice!!!!!

From the moment I walked in, I was put at ease by the clerical staff, assistants and, of course, Dr. Kahng. Everyone was friendly and professional. I am extremely, extremely happy with the work done on me. I don’t go to the dentist as often as I should but I’m inclined to go more often now. I highly recommend this office!

Nicole S. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I are so excited to have found Dr. Kahng! After moving here from out of state, we we’re so worried about finding a good, reputable dentist. Dr. Kahng has exceeded our expectations! From the moment we walked into the office, Doctor and her staff were extremely kind and went above and beyond to explain all procedures that were taking place and most of all, made sure that my husband and I were comfortable during our appointments. I don’t think I have ever had a dentist with such a gentle touch and great bed side demeanor. Very clean, cute office with high tech equipment. If you want a outstanding dentist, then look no further!

Grace R. from Eugene, OR (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Kahng through a colleague and have really enjoyed my first couple visits as a client. Dr. Kahng and her staff are very informative and efficient with their time and you can tell they care and value their clients. The office is clean and it is a very friendly atmosphere. I have nothing but great things to say and would highly recommend their service to anyone looking for a good dentist in the area.

Lisa N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Kahng for over 2 years now and could not be a happier dental patient. I’ve always grown up afraid of dentists because a lot don’t explain what they’re about execute on you and don’t exactly show how much they care about the pain they inflict. She and her staff are extremely sweet and transparent about their procedures. They’re attentive to your pain level and practice gentle techniques that I had no idea existed(…).

Kelsey F. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just left my first appointment with Dr. Kahng and I cannot say enough great things! I recently moved, and had to find a new local dentist. I loved my previous dentist, however I feel as though I left my appointment with Dr. Kahng knowing more about my teeth than ever before. She explained all photos to me, and made sure I did not leave without having answered all of my questions. I would highly recommend Dr. Kahng!

Mishell Chhay (Source: Google)


Dr. Kahng is the greatest! I loved how I came into the office for my appointment and I didn’t have to wait a minute until I was taken to her. She is so personable and was very thorough with my cleaning. It didn’t even hurt! (…) I have recommended her to my family and they loved her just as much as I did. Thanks Dr. Kahng!

John L. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit with Janice and Dr. Kahng today for x-rays and deep clean. Both were great and made it an enjoyable experience. Most impressed with the detail in the evaluation of my teeth and explanation of the necessary care to prevent future issues.

Adrian (Source: Google)


I would strongly recommend this Dentist to anyone. The experience and service are excellent! When you walk in Sue greets you with the warmest smile. The hygienists are awesome and place close attention to detail. I never been uncomfortable or felt pain because they are so attentive. Dr. Julianne is my dentist and she always gives honest feedback… because of this I have kept my teeth in a healthy status given I had problems with my past dentist.

Thanks to the staff and Dr. Julianne for keeping my teeth in such healthy shape!

Jen W. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kahng and the entire staff is amazing. I needed emergency services and everyone helped to get me looking great and back to work! They accommodated my scheduling needs, handled all insurance paperwork, rushed the lab services, and called to check on me after appointments.  I never felt rushed or uncomfortable. Dr. Kahng pays close attention to detail and is honest with her opinions and explanations.   I had only been to the office once for a cleaning before my emergency ( front tooth crown broke off) They use state of the art equipment and have massage chairs!   I am happy with my bridge and relieved to have a fast, permanent solution.
Best of all, they listened to me and treated my situation with respect and sensitivity.

Joshua Lee (Source: Google)


My experience with Dr. Kahng was great. She took the time to explain, and her work was thorough and yet gentle, without pain. I really appreciated her and her staff. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dentist!

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


Dr. Kahng is a fabulous dentist. She is very friendly and makes the dental experience pleasant. She has helped me take of my teeth better than I ever have before . The practice is smaller in size which I like. I do not feel like just a number. I highly recommend Dr Kahng if you are looking for a dentist.

Brad B. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kahng and her staff and Orange and Magnolia are absolutely amazing. Warm, inviting and kind. My experiences there have always been comfortable and relaxing, which is a rarity at most dental appointment. Very customer focused, they make dentistry … fun.

Cheryl S. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kahng and her staff are fantastic! She is always on time which I appreciate as a busy mom who works full time. I appreciate her professionalism and the fact that she does the cleanings and check ups.  I would highly recommend her to anyone.

Emil Kim (Source: Google)


Highly recommend Dr. Kahng, she is awesome! I recently visited the office and got a deep cleaning done. She did an excellent job and it was completely painless! Additionally, her and her staff are incredibly nice. I have already recommended her to my family and friends.

Sarah L. from Cleveland, OH (Source: Yelp)


To be honest, I was a bit nervous to get to the dentist since its been a few years, but it was such a relaxing atmosphere. When I first walked in, I was greeted by a chic and quiet waiting room. The office was playing calming spa music, and the whole place smelled amazing with diffusers throughout.

All the ladies who worked on beautifying my smile were so sweet and gentle! Dr. K made me feel totally comfortable and I never felt judged for a second, which is what I’m used to at other dentists!

After x-rays and a cleaning, I did a teeth whitening for an hour, during which they had a tv on the ceiling for me to watch Netflix! I couldn’t have made it through my 3 hour appointment anywhere else. It honestly felt more like a smile makeover/spa day with the girls, than a dentist appointment.

I highly recommend going here if you are nervous at the dentist and need a calm and gentle team working on you! I felt they put my comfort first every step of the way.

Dr. Kahng and her colleagues are extremely welcoming and sweet. They explain every single step being taken so that you’re comfortable and in the know about the procedure. I feel more relaxed in Dr. Kahng’s hands than any dentist I’ve been to before. I appreciate how thorough Dr. Kahng explains to your understanding, as I’d like to know the rhyme and reason to what’s being done. I can tell that everyone in this office loves what they do.
