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

E. W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun has been my dentist for the past 32 years. I will follow Dr. Sun no matter where she goes, and she’s not allowed to die before I do!!! Dr. Sun is driven by her extreme passion and perfectionism for dentistry and orthodontics. That’s also how she treats all her patients, with exceptional care and love. But her best quality is her integrity and compassion for people. I also love how the office and the bathroom are always super clean!
Dr. Sun you are absolutely the bestest of the best!

Pauline W. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun has been my dentist for 30 plus years. I came to her with a severe case of TMJ. When I first saw Dr Sun, I had had years of pain in my jaw and neck, with an audible click when I chewed. Dr. Sun advised me to wear a custom made occlusal guard which she made for me. I have continued to wear the guard, which she periodically adjusts for me even though I no longer need it as I am pain free and my jaw is perfectly aligned. I understand that surgery is often the treatment of choice for this condition. I am happy and grateful to Dr. Sun for curing my TMJ. She is an amazing dentist, professional and extremely skilled in her profession. She is the best as far as I am concerned.  She has a loving and kind nature and is extremely intelligent. You will not leave her office disappointed.

Alicia C. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a phenomenal experience at Dr. Alice Sun’s office for an annual cleaning. She is professional and very experienced in her line of business. I am getting married in May, and I have started my laser teeth whiting. Already in the first treatment, I am see multiple shades whiter. She was very accommodating with my work schedule and even found time to get me in the same day. She was such a fantastic person and I would recommend EVERYONE I know to go to her If they want to get a great cleaning and know that you will get what you pay for. Five star rating from me and I will continue to go to her for all of my appointments from here on out. Thanks Dr. Sun!

Yesenia C. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start off by saying I use to hate going to the dentist until I found Dr. Sun. I have been going to her for a couple of years now and I absolutely love how gentle and caring she is! She explains everything so thoroughly and she is great at making me feel so comfortable. She is one of a kind and what really sets her apart from other dentist is her HONESTY and INTEGRITY which speaks volumes. She really feels like part of my family. Even though I now live in Texas I always make sure to make my appointment to see her as part of my bi-yearly visit. She is hands down the very best!

Elvi D. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun is so nice and genuine. She actually LISTENS to what you need. The office is easy to find with lots of parking. I have never been to a dentist where they take the time and let you know what they are doing step by step. She helped not only myself but my brother as well. I recommend her to anyone who doesn’t like going to the dentist because she makes you feel comfortable!!

Sara G. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun is one of the most honest, trustworthy, gentle dentists there are. She looks at everything not only he teeth. She takes into co side ration the jaw, nose, skull, and facial structure. I had a terrible dental experience with braces about four years ago and I came to Dr. Sun to treat my mouth and she hasn’t been able to help me to get to a place where my teeth are finally healthy again and we are working on my bite after the braces I got from the other place messed me up really bad. She is the only one I trust now. Seriously recommend her, wonderful staff, excellent dentist.

Stephanie T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun is an expert in her field!  Not only is she very kind and compassionate with all of her patients, treating them like family, but she also is incredibly smart and is very up to date in her knowledge of dentistry and orthodontics.  I really appreciate how she considers the whole person when treating her patients!  She is currently doing amazing ortho work on my 3 daughters.  One of their cases has been very complicated, and Dr. Sun has persevered with so much patience! No other dentist would have taken the time and effort to save a tooth!. Dr. Sun is honest and trustworthy and she loves what she does, and it shows! My whole family loves her.(my parents were also her patients….my daughters are the 3rd generation of our family being cared for by Dr. Sun!),  She has our highest respect, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Sophia C. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun is an amazing dentist with many years of experience. She tells it how it is without using scare tactics. She has been helpful with my Mom’s sleep apnea, helping her get a custom mouth guard (which as the person who has to hear the sleep apnea I can testify it has reduced significantly). I’ve also consulted her for teeth straightening, telling me I’d probably have to pull teeth and the long-term effects of it. I had no idea at the time that this was a common practice and even though I wish it wasn’t the case I’m glad she was straightforward and told me the situation – educating me – versus having me go to someone else and learn last minute that I’d have to have teeth pulled while being tied into another process. Thank you Dr. Sun. 🙂

Candy H. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I went to Dr. Sun a year ago, I was in terrible shape.  I had so much pain in my jaw and in my teeth, which was due to clenching my teeth for years.  I was unable to sleep and so exhausted, I felt like I would have a nervous breakdown.  Dr. Sun spent a long time with me that day asking me questions about my history and my pain.  She quickly began treatment on me by giving me mouth pieces to help relieve my pain and to fix what was wrong.  The devices were hard to get used to, but a year later, I am no longer in pain and I’m sleeping soundly again. Thank You Dr. Sun!!!  If you are suffering from this kind of pain, I urge you to call Dr. Sun immediately so she can help relieve your pain and give you back your life.

K. D. from Omaha, NE (Source: Yelp)


I have been blessed to have Dr. Sun treating my two boys for their orthodontic needs.  I first met Dr.Sun at a dental conference, where she was able to prove the untreatable/challenging orthodontic cases can be treated.  She emphasized the importance of jaw development using the oral and facial muscles and that the TMJ cannot be ignored.  She made very difficult or hopeless cases treatable.
I am a general dentist and asked Dr. Sun to look at my boys because my youngest had signs and symptom of sleep apnea.  At 8years old he as still wetting is bed and had difficulty concentrating at school.  My other son was always on the grumpy side.  After a few months of treatment with Dr. Sun.  My 8 year stop wetting his bed and his grades improved.  My older son was happier and more affectionate to everyone.  Dr. Sun changed my boys lives and made them healthier and happier.  I can never express her enough gratitude, she is an Angel to myself and many others.
Dr. Sun truly lives up to her name, she shines light to all who will listen and gives hope to those suffering from oral facial pain, sleep apnea, TMD and much much more.  She is an beacon of excellence and one to emulate.  I would recommend Dr. Sun to anyone!

Stephanie T. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have known Dr. Sun for close to 30 years, and I truly believe that qualifies me to give her a recommendation. She has been my dentist all of these years (other than the years my family lived out of state, before relocating about a year ago….and we did not waste any time getting right back in to see her once we moved back!)  Dr. Sun is an expert in her field!  Not only is she very kind and compassionate with all of her patients, treating them like family, but she also is incredibly smart and is very up to date in her knowledge of dentistry and orthodontics.  I really appreciate how she considers the whole person when treating her patients!  She is currently doing amazing ortho work on my 3 daughters.  One of their cases has been very complicated, and Dr. Sun has persevered with so much patience!  My girls enjoy their time at the dentist so much that they actually look forward to going!!  I know that is unusual!!  Dr. Sun is honest and trustworthy and she loves what she does, and it shows! My whole family loves her.(my parents were also her patients….my daughters are the 3rd generation of our family being cared for by Dr. Sun!), She is one of the main reasons that we are so thrilled to be back in the OC.  She has our highest respect, and I cannot recommend her highly enough.

Candace C. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was fortunate enough to meet Dr. Sun when our daughter was a toddler.  Our daughter had an underbite.  Dr. Sun suggested retainers (that worked as expanders) to open her mouth and prevent her from having to wear braces or have teeth extracted later.  Now a grown young women with a beautiful smile…  she did a similiar regimen for our son, he too never had to wear braces and is grateful for his straight teeth!!!  Thank you Dr. Sun

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


I have been going to Dr Sun 30 + years. She is awesome. Great work ethics, caring, honest and gentle. She greats you in the waiting room and always has a smile on her face. She uses nothing but the best materials for great long lasting work. Also, she is amazing with my kids. They love going to see her because they have so much fun. My family has never had any problems with any of the work that we have had done with her.

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


I have been going to Dr. Sun for the past couple of years and have received nothing but the very best treatment. Never have I met such a honest, caring, and truly profession dentist. All of the work I’ve had done by her has been long lasting, unlike work I’ve had done by other dentists in the past. I’ve had temporary fillings done by her that’s lasted longer than some of the permanent fillings I’ve had done by other dentists. Furthermore, she is more than happy to not only discuss the work she is performing on you, but also educate because she actually cares. Dr. Sun is also hands down amazing with kids, and I have been bringing my daughter regularly. My daughter actually looks forward to dental visits now as Dr. Sun provides such a positive atmosphere for kids. It always brings a warm smile to my face when my daughter is brushing her teeth by herself and happily humming a tune she picked up from her visit to Dr. Sun. This always reminds me how lucky I am to have such a wonderful dentist!

MariJo T. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family of 6 having been going to Dr. Sun for over 20 years.  My four children all required orthodontic work, 2 needed extensive work.  I have logged in many hours at her office and can only praise the difference she has made in the dental health of my kids.  Prior to her, I sought out a pediatric dentist in Long Beach so my kids would have positive, non fearful experiences with dentist. Unlike myself, who cries at the thought of a dentist visit.  The first two years with one child was spent trying to undo everything that was done wrong!!!!  Not only has she made the kids experience a positive and healthy one but has dealt with my lifelong fear of the dentist.  Dr Sun meet me at 1 o’clock in the morning to perform an emergency root canal.  I don’t think any other  dentist would have every gone above and beyond like Dr. Sun.

Pj A. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Sun is AMAZING! For the longest time I was searching for a dentist for myself and my kids. We came across some that seemed to only try to make a quick buck off of us. One of my coworkers raves about her, so I booked an appointment as soon as possible, and we’ve been with her since. Dr.Sun takes great care of my son! Sometimes the dentist can be scary for kids, but he loves going to the dentist and it makes my job as a mother easier since I don’t have to drag him to the dentist office. She reassures you every single time that she’s there to help and it shows in the work she does and how she does it. She’s very flexible with scheduling, and always does what’s best for the patient, she’ll try her best to accommodate your needs as much as possible but is honest if some don’t work for her.

Celeste R. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun is amazing. She literally saved me. I was suffering from chronic jaw pain, 24/7 for several months. When I came to her, she knew almost immediately what was wrong. After taking some scans, she confirmed I was having TMJ issues, and was able to recommend the proper treatment for me. One day after wearing my mouthguard, my pain was completely gone! She has been so informative, and truly cares about the health and well-being of her patients. I’m so grateful to Dr. Sun for everything she has done for me.

Lachesis C. from Richardson, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun is an excellent dentist and especially expertise on TMJ issue. Her treatment and dental appliance are very helpful. To be more specifically my pain reduced dramatically after her treatment. I was pretty upset before met her. But her treatment and warm attitude helps me a lot. Definitely recommend to people suffer in pain. Thank you Dr. Sun!

Ricco R. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Few times in life do you come across a health professional whose strongest motivation is helping others. Dr. Sun is not only incredibly gifted in her practice, she has a true heart for people and considers every encounter with the patient and opportunity to serve her community. With that being said, Dr. Sun has been caring for me for over a year. She has performed cleanings, extractions, fillings, periodontal treatment, and orthodontics (braces). What I appreciate most is her perspective on overall wellness. She educates her patients and empowers them with the knowledge necessary to maximize and preserve their health. Rather than simply treating the symptom, she teaches you how to address the cause, even if it compromises her profit. She is ethical in her practice and moral in her judgment. I trust her and wish all healthcare professionals at her integrity.

Jene'a D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our whole family of 5 have been going to Dr. Sun for 25 years. She is the best dentist ever. My children have been going to Dr. Sun since they were 5 yrs old. They’ve had molars removed surgery. She does such a wonderful job they felt hardly any pain. It never lasts for more than a day if they felt any at all. We tried going to other dentists, but Dr. Sun had to redo what they worked on. We recommend Dr. Sun to ANYBODY!!!

Theresa T. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had always gone to Dr. Sun for dental problem since almost 20 years ago. She’s one of the few dentists who really genuinely care about her patients. She has a kind heart and will go above and beyond to do what’s good for you.  She’s been looking after my whole families teeth for years and everyone in my family hold great gratitude for her.  Just try her for a simple teeth cleaning and you can immediately tell the differences between her and those other dentists who are like charging per minutes. She’s great with her hands, got eyes for detail, and willing to spend time on you regardless of ur insurance policies.  Sadly reccently I had moved away to work abroad and I can’t find any dentist as trustworthy as she is anywhere, so even though my company pays for free teeth cleaning twice a year, I always go to See Dr. Sun whenever I return to US!

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


My family has been seeing Dr. Sun for 1 year and we are very happy with her level of care.  If you enjoy going to a dentist that will spend a minimal amount of time with you and shuffle you in and out of their office, then Dr. Sun is not the dentist for you.   I love it that Dr. Sun does the dental cleanings herself instead of handing you over
to a dental assistant.  My children have been seeing her for their orthodontic needs as well. I saught Dr. Sun because she uses Myofunctional Orthodoctics [google it 😉 it works] My son had crowding teeth, no room for his adult teeth to come in, and an overbite/receding chin but after 6 months of myofunctional orthodoctic treatment, no more crowded crooked teeth! Her prescribed exercises for him also helped him improve and solve some of his Speech and Language issues.  Lastly Dr. Sun really cares about her patients and sees them as part of her family. We certainly feel that way and gladly drive 45 minutes to see her. If you want someone that will spend time on you and care for you then I recommend her.

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


Dr Sun is the the best dentist I have ever been too.  I have been going to her for over 20 years.   She has the highest integrity towards her patients and her work.  Always going above and beyond always making sure you are happy with the results.

Colby K. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to many dentist and always had trouble finding one who truly cares about my issues. I am so so thankful I met Dr. Sun. She truly cares about and has taken care of all my dentistry needs. She is very knowledgeable and has taught me so much about my dental hygiene. From cleanings, gum health, my orthodontic needs, and much much more. I am very glad to have found such a great all around dentist. If anyone is also looking for a great dentist, Dr. Sun is the one!!

Kevin S. from Brownsville, TX (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sun has been taking care of me from childhood all the way to college. Thanks to her I never had a fear of going to the dentist. She is always generous with her time and made sure that I received the best care. It was thanks to her that I can smile with confidence. She took my crooked teeth and gave me a smile that I always am ready to share. Dr.Sun makes her patients feel more than just patients. I can’t thank her enough.

Janet S. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


She’s amazing!!!! None like Dr. Sun’s work. I have been helping her for the past year and I have seen nothing but excellent work with every person that walks in her office. I have seen countless of people come in with pain and come back without pain. It’s amazing to see God’s work through Dr. Sun. She loves and treats all her patients as her very own family. I am one of those blessed patients to have Dr. Sun as my doctor. I recommend her 100%.

Sargon Y. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


After the work I have had done on my mouth, I can say that Dr Sun truly does care about people and your overall health as a person. I can appreciate the passion she has for her work (which is top notch), and the detail she puts into her explanations of what needs to be done. You’re not just a patient or a number when you consult with her. I am truly thankful to be under her care..

Tina N. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Sun since I was a child. Now Dr. Sun is helping my children. My son Noa has an under developed chin that was not growing at the same rate of his face. His jaw was receded 30%.  It really made him self conscience. His teeth stuck out like buck teeth. His side profile his lip protruded out because his teeth stuck out so much he looked like Gomer Pile. The kids teased him to the point he refused to speak, smile or want to go out in public. He had anger issues from being frustrated. He had hard times breathing at night and bad asthma. I could go on. Dr. Sun took my son under her care and approached us with a vision she had to correct his problem. She is very positive and loving in her hands on treatment with the kids. Dr. Sun created orthodontic appliances that helped force Noa’s body to move into a correct form. He had to really work on chewing and developing his jaw muscles. The body started to cooperate and his jaw started to grow into the correct place. The appliances also straightened his teeth. The idea was to retrain his bodies way of thinking. Sort of a muscle memory and stimulate the body to grow into its proper space. During this period .I saw my son go from hiding his smile to smiling and laughing all the time. He played a lead role in his 6th grade class as Thomas Jefferson and his body language is like night and day. Noa now stands tall, makes eye contact, jokes, flirts with girls, and is the clown in his group of friends. He is a Honor Roll student and very outgoing. His confidence has soared tremendously. Its all due to Dr. Sun and her vision, her plan of care and the exceptional treatment in my son’s care. His profile is now very strong and handsome. I have so much to thank Dr. Sun for. She literally brought the smile, and confidence back to my little boy who was broken/and bullied by his peers. His Asthma is almost non existent, he has no more problems breathing at night because his airway is now open and not pinched off like it was on his first visit with Dr. Sun.  We love Dr. Sun and Highly recommend her skills and services she provides. She cares so much and is passionate about what she does and let me tell you it shows. My children are living proof. Talk about a miracle worker. Dr. Sun is Awesome!.

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


Dr.Sun is the best dentist. Not only is she compassionate she is truly honest. She all about what’s best for her patients. Dr. Sun wants to save you money whenever possible. She isn’t out to gouge you in any way. She will come in at all hours of any day to help you with any dental situation. She works weekends and even holidays. She follows up  with her patients  after a tough procedure to make sure you are doing well. She is just truly a genuine kind lady with the biggest heart for all of her patients. I highly recommend her for all your dental needs, young or old.

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


Shes honest, She truly cares about her patients and shes a very sweet lady. The best part of Dr. Sun is her main concern is you and your teeth. She will never steer you in the wrong direction and shes always there to help. Beware of other dentist who might only be in it for their checkbook, Dr. Sun is a great Dentist.

Colin P. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr Sun since I was a little kid and could not imagine trusting anyone else with my smile. She is kind, but more important she really has a passion for her patients and field. Over the years she has created a family atmosphere in her office and I have always been confident she is giving me the best care available.

Budi S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Caring, compassionate, perfectionist and above all, HONEST. I’ve been the client of Dr. Sun for over 2 decades and  for the whole family of 4.  Her knowledge and professionalism of dentistry are beyond call of duty. My children had “deformed” teeth and now under her care they are perfectly aligned. This is the last honest dentist in Huntington Beach, and we are proud to associate ourselves with her. Do you want a honest, non biased and perfect treatment for your teeth, come and visit Dr. Sun.

Bishoy B. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Never have I been to a dentist as honest and caring as Dr. Sun. She puts the patient’s health above all other things and her knowledge in dentistry is astounding. She makes sure you understand what she’s treating and how it affects your overall health. Instead of immediately resorting to drastic procedures, she tries to find the best solution for the issue and practices preventative care. I’ve gone to her for braces, wisdom tooth extractions, cleanings, and fillings and I have never once had a complaint. She is an amazing dentist and I would recommend her to anyone.

Jenna M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to many dentists and have been traumatized and scared to go back to the dentist. Once i met Dr.Sun, i no longer felt that way anymore. She is so sweet and makes you feel comfortable. She knows how to make you feel special. Many other dentists always tell you something wrong everytime you go in and visit just to get more money, but Dr. Sun tells you the truth and only tells you what you have to get done only if you really need it. She really knows what she is doing! i can trust her with anything. I highly recommend coming straight to Dr. Sun for anything you need!

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


Dr. Sun is the best! Out of all the doctors I’ve been too, she has been by far the most compassionate and intelligent doctor i’ve met. My entire family has been going to Dr. Sun for years and she has done dentistry and orthodontic work on my kids and wife.  She is really great with the kids and my children actually looks forward to their dentist visits! If you are looking for a dentist that is honest and truly has the patient’s best interest at heart, then Dr. Sun is the way to go!
