I cannot say enough great things about Dr. Bradford and her staff.  Everyone in this office is welcoming and professional.  Dr. Bradford is knowledgeable, friendly and caring and so is the staff.  The office is impeccably clean and runs on time- i have never had to wait.

Dr. Bradford and Dr. Pham are amazing doctors and their staff is fantastic! I highly recommend their practice, especially for Invisalign treatment!

Harveen D. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is amazing! The staff…. classy ladies! From the minute I walked in I was treated in a friendly and very gracious manner. My procedure took some time and throughout the process the staff inquired about my comfort level, my pain level, if I needed anything and they took their time, not rushing it. Like most people I dread having work done on my teeth but the team at this office made it a pleasant experience. Thank you so much for your gentle care, you are all wonderful!

Thank goodness for the doctors and staff at Premier Dental- total blessing for me and my family.  These are the first doctors to give me sound advice about straightening and whitening my children’s teeth.  Both Drs. Pham and Bradford are up to date on latest products and procedures that are necessary for my family to have the best dental options available.  Dr. Pham even taught at USC Dental School for may years.  For this knowledge I am forever grateful!  My oldest son has very soft, discolored adult teeth with very thin enamel.  Therefore, I have chosen Invisalign to straighten his teeth while simultaneously using the trays to whiten.  The results have been amazing in a relatively short amount of time!!  And for the first time my son is not covering his teeth when he laughs or smiles- writing this almost brings me to tears!!!  I do feel that traditional braces would have caused too much damage- which is probably why other dentists recommended veneers after braces.  But, I just couldn’t wrap my head around a full set of veneers on a such a young boy. The Invisalign allows him to throughly clean his teeth during treatment- Genius! My younger son has a cross bite and I was advised numerous times that he will need two sets of braces- the first set to open and widen his jaw at age 8!  This common procedure requires turning a key and cranking that space open- dear lord!!!!  I have since been advised of another option with Invisalign- his cross bite is not too severe and can be corrected with a more gentle option when he is older.  Phew!

My whole family comes here to get our teeth taken care of. We know we are in good hands with both Drs. Pham and Bradford. My husband had Invisalign done with them and his teeth look so good that I might consider doing it just to straighten my teeth a bit more.  Awhile back, Dr. Pham noticed that I was grinding my teeth and set me up with a night guard to protect my teeth and remind me to not grind. It even helped get rid of some headaches I was having. If you need a good dentist that you can trust you don’t need to look any further… make an appointment.

Dr. Bradford is simply the best. She’s been our family dentist since my kids were in grade school.  The staff is always friendly and welcoming. The office is bright and clean.   Dr. Bradford does quality work and is quick and efficient.  She is always great with my kids.  Very gentle and patient.  She’s been able to meet the entire family’s dental needs including invisalign for both my kids.  I highly recommend Dr. Bradford and Premiere Dental of South Orange County.

Dr. Duc Pham is a great dentist. He is very caring and gentle. I’ve been coming here for a couple of years now and my teeth are doing great. Whenever there is a problem or potential problem he really takes the time to explain things and make sure I understand what is going on and what I need to do about it. I never felt like I was being bullied into something like with other doctors. If you want a good dentist, go see him.

Ric C. from North Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Duc Pham is a very friendly and caring dentist. It’s easy to talk to him and provides clear explaination of your dental care and condition’ I switched to Dr. Pham after I learned how good he was in taking care of my wife’s dental needs. He also has a good, caring, and professional staff.
My wife and I highly recommend Dr. Pham for anybody’s dental care needs.

Amaya H. from Melba, ID (Source: Yelp)


My daughter and I had the opportunity to undergo the Zoom whitening treatment while in CA recently. Dr Duc Pham made the procedure fun and comfortable. He did warn us that we may experience some discomfort either during or after in our teeth, so we were not mislead at all. I however did not experience any during the process only after periodically during the day but it is normal. My daughter already has pearly whites and she was impressed. I however had years of coffee and nicotine stains on my teeth. I now look like I have youthful clean white teeth (almost movie star like). People who know me really see a difference. Did I mention that we both had a dental exam with Dr Pham as well, I must get my lower left crown replaced asap. To an excellent dentist, Thank You!

Tuan P. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


I have found my service at Premier Dental have been great and satisfactory.  The care is very professional and gives you a sense of confidence that they will take care of any needs there is to be done.  I fly once a year to have my dental needs taken care off.  I don’t just let anyone take care of my many dental needs.   I would highly recommend and refer anyone to the office.  Thanks again.

Miren H. from Melba, ID (Source: Yelp)


About a year and a half ago I was in the Orange County area for a while and had the oppoutunity to have my teeth whitened at Premier Dental.  I have to say that I will not ever forget the service I received while I was there.  Dr. Pham explained the process and gave me a quick check up as well.  I received some terrific pointer as to how to maintain my new pearly teeth that have kept them white even after over a year.  Even though I get complements all the time on my smile (not so sound vain), I have been thinking of going to get them redone (as I cannot give up the coffee).  There is only one place I will go and have this done.  Thanks for leaving an incredible impression on me Premier Dental of South Orange County.

I have a new and great dentist now. It’s so hard to find a good dental practice. I moved here 3 years ago and have now a great and gentle dental office. So happy

Yesenia M. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


My kids love coming to the dentist here. Very professional. Very happy with out dentist and now my husband that had never seen a dentist is his 42 years is coming and has nothing but good things to say.

Dori O. from Laguna Woods, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dental office.  The staff are incredibly friendly, knowledgeable, professional, and considerate.  Dr. Pham is wonderful at his profession and has a very caring attitude towards his patients!  It’s great to come here for my dental care.  Patient for life!  Dori

Kathryn H. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently found Premier Dental to have my teeth whitened, very pleasant experience with great results.  The office and staff were terrific so I went back for cleaning, x-rays and exam with Dr. Pham!  I was very happy so I scheduled my daughter for the same and met Dr. Bradford.  Dr. Bradford referred us to an orthodontist and felt very confident with the information they gave.  The office staff followed up a personal “Thank You” note and would definitely recommend Premier Dental to others looking for a great family dental office!  Just need to get my husband in!

Jasmine M. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so grateful after going to numerous dentists, I finally found the BEST dentists! Dr.Bradford and Dr.Pham are both professional and knowledgeable. My daughter has Invisalign and it has been a great experience. She now has a perfect smile. My husband had to have a lot of dental work done. We have been extremely happy from the dentists work to the front office staff. The girls up front are wonderful and the office manager is the sweetest most helpful lady. She always takes her time to make sure we understand what is being done.

Jennifer B. from Rosholt, WI (Source: Yelp)


Both my husband and I loved Premier Dental of South OC.  We’ve recently moved to Central, WI…but we loved going to Premier Dental while we were in Orange County.  The staff is remarkable…they treat you like family.  The office is impeccable.  We actually loved forward to our dental visits.

Aaron F. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friendly, thorough and never have to wait.  Everyone is very professional and extremely competent.  They are very comprehensive during an exam and I never feel rushed.  Consistently good hygienists.  The front desk is amazing too.  Always a warm welcome and have paperwork done before I even reach the desk as I’m leaving and have a great understanding of the insurance options. A+

Shamrock G. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental practice is professional in every respect – from the front office to the dentists themselves.  What my former dentists wanted to charge frightened me somewhat so I started asking family who they use and came upon Premier.  The dentistry fee of Premier was less than the previous dentist and this included work not recommended by the former dentist. GREAT VALUE, especially if you have no Dental Insurance.  Watch out for a dental practice that changes hands through retirement; the new owners have to pay off that purchase price somehow.

Ragen G. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bradford has been our family dentist for about 13 years now.  We live in North Orange County and chose to make the drive because she and her office staff are always so nice and welcoming to the patients.  I am not one who enjoys going to the dentist, but Dr. Bradford is gentle and wants to make sure you are comfortable while being seen.  I also have to sons and have taken them to see her.  She is great with kids!!! My boys really love getting a prize from the treasure box for no cavities.  If you are looking for a great dentist, I would highly recommend  Dr. Bradford!!!!

Rob R. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pham and his crew are super friendly, efficient, and knowledgeable. They do a great job and will help you work out any scheduling or billing issue. I’ve been coming here for a few years and have referred other friends who love the place as well.

Nancy K. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


AMAZING DENTISTRY! I have been to so many dentists in the past. They either made me wait for hours, or my teeth were not properly fixed and I had to end up going back to someone else to fix it. Premier dental I can’t say enough good things about them!!! Wondering experience every time I had been there (almost 10 years now), on time, staffs are friendly and knowledgeable about anything you ask. Dr. Bradford and Dr. Pham are the simply the best dentists ever!! They are detail, professional. I can’t ask for any better dentist

Erin M. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Pham and his staff are AWESOME!  Both my husband and I have been going there for several years now and we can’t say enough good things!  They are always accommodating and flexible.  The customer service is outstanding.  The dental care that we receive there is superb!  All of the staff are warm, friendly, and genuine.  Highly recommend!!!

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


This review is for all the Yelpers who want to have a superb and professional dental experience. I am not a big Yelper but I wanted to take time and give Premier Dental a big FIVE. I was recommended by one of my family members to visit Premier Dental. I have been coming back ever since my first visit. The astounding Dentist I see is Dr. Duc Pham. He always gives me a Five Star dental experience. He is well educated and I think is of the best in his field of work. Also, I would like to point out that I always feel comfortable with my visits. Especially since, I am always nervous and hard to please about getting my teeth done therefore I have been to other Dental offices and have never been this satisfied. This is by far the BEST. I get my teeth cleaned frequently, occasional fillers, and got an amazing teeth whitening service. After the teeth whitening, I smiled confidently and received many compliments. Further, Dr. Duc Pham always makes me feel satisfied with my visit because he is very helpful with any concerns I have and genuinely cares for his patients

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


I am currently going through Invisalign treatment and couldn’t be happier!! Dr. Bradford and staff are amazing and so informative. I always feel so comfortable and at ease from when I walk in the door to when I sit in the chair. The hygienists are superb and Dr. Pham always has a smile on his face. I look forward to visiting this office and have urged all of my friends and family to become patients here. I refuse to go anywhere else and really enjoy all the extra perks of being a patient at Premier Dental of South Orange County. If you’re looking for something more from a dental office, then look no FURTHER, this is the office for you.

Carl H. from Boise, ID(Source: Yelp)


I visited premier Dental to see Dr Pham.  I hadn’t been to a dentist in 12 years and my teeth were in very poor shape.  (I have a strong fear of dentist)  Dr Pham took his time to explain to me the procedure and the following care I would need to get my teeth and gums back into good shape.  He and his staff put me at ease from the moment I walked in.   One of the hardest things for me when going to a dentist has always been getting the shots to numb my mouth (this just plain hurts!)  somehow Dr Pham was able to distract me with out my realizing it and give me the shots with zero pain.   The procedure went very well and was done in less time than I expected.  The staff was great, easy to talk to and like I said above put me at ease.  I read some of the reviews below and I just don’t believe that there is any way a person could leave this office with any feeling other than that they were treated with the utmost care and received the best service possible.

Betsy B. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to a dentist in quite some time reason being, always a bad experience.  I have had a life time of issues when it comes to getting to that dentist and then the disappointment afterwards.  First, I must say that the office staff was so kind and helpful even with my having to cancel two appointments before I actually got there. They remained kind, patient, and understanding. Upon my first visit my B/P was not the best in fact it was a bit scary but I knew it reacted from my fear of dentists and what was to come. I had to convince the staff I was fine and it was just my issues and the fear kicking in. It did resolve itself quickly because of the surrounding environment. Dr. Pham was very professional with a great beside manner. Coming from the medical profession I desire and look for those qualities in a practice. I am thrilled with the work he did on my four bottom teeth, they look great!  For the first time in a lifetime of bad dentistry he has turned me around to a positive attitude and great experience in his chair.  I now look forward to my next appointment.

Sesile A. from Whittier, CA (Source: Google)


I was recommended to try Premier Dental and I am so happy with all of the care I have received in the past few months. Dr. Bradford is knowledgeable and so sweet!, as well as her staff. I definitely recommend!

Jennie W. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad that I found Dr. Bradford!  She is an awesome dentist!  She is on time and cares about your teeth and what is going on.  She is always super friendly and her staff are fantastic as well.  When you arrive for your appointment you never wait for more then a minute or two.  My boys and I see Dr. Bradford and my husband sees Dr. Pham.  He is great too!  If you are looking for an amazing dentist who is honest, caring and extremely knowledgable then see Dr. Bradford or Dr. Pham.  And it’s a bonus that Dr. Bradford taught at USC!

Keith S. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Premier Dental.  Dr Pham, Dr Bradford and their staff have created a warm atmosphere for thier patients.  Without a doubt, I feel like they care about each and everyone of their patients.  They go above and beyond to make each patients’ experience unbelievably plesant.  They make sure that you are not only comfortable but well informed so even scaredy cats like me don’t feel nervous about going to the dentist. This weekend, way after business hours, I had an accident with my tooth.  Dr Pham responded to me within minutes of calling his pager.  He instantly made me feel less concerned about potential problems or concerns with my tooth.  He even came in and met me in the office to take a look at my tooth.  I truly felt like he was a friend who wanted me to be comfortable and healthy.  Without any reservation, I recommend Dr Pham and his team.

Kimberly A. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Premier Dental for over seven years now.  Dr. Pham is the best dentist that I have ever been to.  I originally came to him with horrific dental work and pain; and he corrected everything.  He is meticulous and very detailed in perfecting teeth.  The staff is extremely friendly, helpful and always looking out for the health and longevity of your teeth and gums.  It is very hard to find a good dentist and I plan to be with Dr. Pham for life!   🙂 Thank you to the wonderful staff at Premier Dental for always making something as unpleasant as going to the dentist a truly wonderful experience!

Teresa H. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Pham I cannot to thank you enough for everything that you have done for me. After months and months of a terrible unexplainable headache and exhausting all my options (primary care physician, ent, neurologist) I decided to finally pay a visit to my friends dentist Dr. Pham. Dentist for a headache? Yes, I thought it was weird too. He did an exam and X-rays and came to a conclusion that I have TMJ issues and along with a nasal infection it was the cause of my headache. He gave me a night guard and antibiotics and I’ve been headache free ever since. I cannot be more grateful. Just when I was beginning to lose hope and sick of Drs. appointments. So honest and caring. I will be recommending you to everyone I know. Thank you very much!!

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


Nice friendly staff.  They were very thorough and showed me the dental work that needed to be done which I really appreciate.  I would highly recommend this dental office to anyone looking for a new dentist.

A. S. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was easily one of the best experiences I’ve had with any dental office. I was there today for a routine cleaning & diagnostics. The entire process was just perfect. The staff is amazing. Tara, their hygienist, did an extremely thorough job with the cleaning. I had some inter-proximal stains and she took the time to manually remove them. Dr. Pham went through my x-rays and pointed out each and every anomaly and provided practical treatment options where necessary. Sjana, their coordinator presented the treatment options after working with my insurance co., but did not push for any unnecessary treatments. This was my first visit at Premier Dental, and it seemed that staff there puts patient benefits first. “ethical & thorough dental office”… now that’s not easy to find!
