The team at Dr. Amo is amazing!!! I always put off coming to the dentist, then when I come in, I wonder why I didn’t come in sooner!! They are helpful and understanding and caring! My girls look forward to coming in and seeing these amazing people! This is definitely a family environmental and I am grateful that I was referred to them so many years ago! Thank you Dr Amo and team! You are all wonderful!

Don’t look any further. Top notch dentist, and staff.
This is home for me. This office makes everyone feel like family.
Quality. Perfectionism and compassion

If you want the absolute best dental care, this is the place to go.  Dr Amo’s credentials are stellar and his experience & knowledge are abundant.  Add that to his skills and you have one of the best dentists in Orange County.  His staff are so nice and kind too.  I feel like family when I go and I go 4 times a year for regular cleaning and checkup.  Have been doing this for more than 10 years! Cost is above average but so is the service and skill.  Highly recommend Dr Amo.

Just picked up my night guard from Dr. Amo. He & his staff go above & beyond to make you feel comfortable. Very accommodating & even validate parking!

I have been a patient of Dr. Richard Amo’s for now going on 8 years.
I came to him after my insurance sent me to a (different dental office) or some other multi-located horror chamber of oral torture.
The one I was sent to had dirty dental chairs; and the “hygienist” and the dentist were anything but! And the walls were visibly dirty. Used things and plastic containers were stacked in just outside a closet door that couldn’t close cause it was so full.
After sitting in the chair and having the hackles on my next stand attention – I simply got up and told the assistant I would not be staying. I handed her the bib and simply walked out.
This AIN’T that!
Now don’t get me wrong, I was trepidatious. I had heard these people were really nice by everyone I asked. Since most ALL my dental experiences have been less than appreciative, I wasn’t so much doubtful as resolved to feeling some pain and having to block out Dustin Hoffman & Sir Laurence Olivier! (WATCH Marathon Man!)
But, I took a chance. My mouth hurt.
When I walked in I was approached by the receptionist/office manager, Tenae.
She sets the time for the whole experience – so you know it’s going to be a breeze.
From early in the appointment I felt this would be a good match.
Then I was introduced to Angela, the hygienist & wife of Dr Amo. Talk about a cohesive transition. She was very cool. Also careful not to cause any discomfort and was friendly and gentle.
When I met Doctor Amo, it was also very soothing. He made it so by being specific on what I was going to experience and he left no question unanswered before it was even asked. Talk about knowing what your customer needs and addressing it before they even tell you. He’s precise, accurate, and extremely charactered.
Everyone I’ve met there has been really nice.
Corny as it’s going to sound – you feel safe here. I have since the beginning and still do some 8 years later.
So if you need an honest dentist who isn’t some cheap pseudo-replica of Steve Martin, the masochistic dentist in Little Shop Of Horrors! Come see Doctor Richard Amo, in Fullerton, CA.
Tell them Chef Will aka The FoodPro sent you.
Smile BIG!!

Dr. Amo and his staff are amazing! I was never a fan of going to the dentist, and had a bad experience with a previous dentist upselling services and not really hearing that we were not in a position financially to go ahead with them. I found Dr. Amo through my husband and family, and am so grateful that he’s taken me in. I’m no longer afraid of the dentist. My daughters are five and seven, and they love him and his staff as well. They are patient and kind, and always prompt and available!

Love this place and love these people! They always do great work on me and make me feel so comfortable. I’ve been with them for years now and don’t plan on going anywhere else. This is a great spot

Sarah S. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love them!! Been coming since I was a little girl and as an adult have hated every dentist but them!

Danielle S. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amo has been my dentist since I was 3 years old. He is the best of the best. He treats every single person that walks through his door like gold. He is an amazing dentist and he really loves what he does. Everyone in their office is great! Angela is usually the one that cleans my teeth and they are always PERFECT when I leave. If you go to Dr. Amo any fear you have of the dentist will dissipate and you will look forward to coming in and visiting them every six months!!!

Dr. Richard Amo DDS and his highly skilled team of hygienist and front office manager are unquestionably the BEST of Orange County.  My family have been patients for 20 years.  Pain free care!

Your oral health and history is equally as important as your medical well-being.  Because of Dr. Amo’s continuing care, we have been able to keep our natural teeth, free of any chronic dental issues, and learned to practice preventative daily care.  The office atmosphere is welcoming, always an honest opinion about dental diagnosis and treatment needs, and convenient scheduling.  

Am especially grateful to Dr. Amo for his respectful care of my 88 year old father who was experiencing severe tooth and gum pain.  And his fair assessment of what could be realistically done.

If you are looking for the BEST and RESPECTED dentist in oral care, call Dr Amo’s office and schedule an appointment right away.  Dr. Amo is your trusted partner in managing all of you and your families oral health care. He has been and will continue to be my family’s only dentist!

Dr Amo leads a skilled friendly staff. Very organized, on time appointments. Family friendly atmosphere. Easy parking.  He is an excellent dentist

Ann L. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for years and Dr. Amo and his wife are absolutely amazing at what they do. I really think that they are the absolute best in town! I just had some teeth filled in where I had previous cracks and my smile looks absolutely beautiful.

I really have nothing but amazing things to say. They are organized and every time I go to the dentist it is an amazing experience.
