I’ve been a patient of Dr Hamaty since he opened in Yorba Linda in 2006. My entire family sees him. We moved several years ago and now travel an hour just to see him. My daughter and I refer to his office as the Spa. He is very gentle. I just close my eyes and relax knowing I’m in good hands. Even getting the shots for local anesthetic is almost painless. I don’t know how he does it! We see Julie Leahy for cleaning. She is wonderful. Again, sweet, gentle and entertaining. I also had my teeth straighten by Dr Hamaty using Invisalign. A great result!!!! I had my teeth whitened there using Zoom. Investing one hour was well worth it! My teeth look so much better. Anyway… I highly recommend Dr Hamaty and Julie. Especially for those who are stressed about going to the dentist!!!!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hamaty’s for years now. He is the best!! From the get-go I have felt truly cared about…his work is impeccable, he treats you like family, remembers you personally…it’s a friend who is working on your teeth! His office is spotless and beautiful and the staff are amazing! Julie, the dental hygienist is also amazing!! Again, you have a friend cleaning your teeth! My smile and I truly love these people!

FG. J. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hamaty has been my dentist for over ten years, and I tell everyone that I LOVE my dentist!!!  His entire staff is wonderful.  The office is beautiful.  And, I’ve never had a negative experience there.  Even when I had to have a tooth extracted he was awesome!  I would highly recommend him.  No matter where you live…he’s worth the drive.

Dr. Hamaty’s team is terrific, welcoming and service-oriented. All are exceptional, including Mollie and Elvia. Hamaty and team not only offer great dental care using the latest technologies, but possess a welcome sense of humor. I had some veneers done a couple of years ago by Dr. Hamaty and they are wonderful. I highly recommend this dental team!

Amanda G. from Los Alamitos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hamaty and his staff are amazing! They are professional, relatable and always super nice. I enjoy coming to this office for all of my cleanings and dental work. The staff does a great job of reminding me of my appointments and scheduling future appointments at times that are convenient for my schedule. In addition, Dr. Hamaty always explains the procedures he is doing in a way that I can understand. I HIGHLY recommend :))

Dr. Hamaty and his staff are highly professional, from the greeting you receive upon check-in, to the excellent care he provides. He genuinely cares about his patients and does all he can to ensure they are comfortable during treatment. Five stars to Fernando as well. Always a pleasure to have him working with Dr. Harmaty. I highly recommend this office.

Carly D. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been about 7 years now that my family and I have been visiting Dr. Hamaty and Mrs. Julie Leahy. I DEFINITELY recommend them to anyone who is looking for very friendly and kind professionals who will give you the absolute best service possible. Every time that I have been worked on here, has been a very positive experience, and I leave with my teeth feeling squeaky clean, shiny, and refreshed. Mr. Hamaty is sweet and genuine, and exceptionally good at his job. Julie is amazing! As well as doing a perfect cleaning job and check-up, she is pleasant to be around, and gentle. She is very great to have a conversation with, and will make you forget your phobias of the dentist’s office. Everyone there is dedicated to their jobs, and they run a very smooth operation. Overall, this is by far the best office around, and I highly recommend it.

Stacy S. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Richard Hamaty DMD and Julie Leahy RDH and the amazing office staff are seriously the best!   They are all always so kind, funny and efficient.  Calling to remind you of your appointment, asking about your family, extremely patient yet they get you out of the office in a timely manner. Plus the office has been updated and is always clean. I have been going to this office for over 20 years and I always leave in a better mood then I started.  How many people can say that about their dentist office?!? Julie did my cleaning today and as always she cracks me up but most of all my teeth feel like a million bucks. Thank you

I’ve been going here for as long as I can remember and everyone has always been so professional and kind. The hygienists have always been very personable and friendly. Same with Dr. Hamaty, he is always asking to make sure you are doing well and have no pain. When he does the numbing shots I rarely, if ever, feel anything. Overall, a great clean place to have your teeth cared for and checked on. Definitely recommend!

Jeffrey K. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough about Dr. Hamaty. He has been taking care of my family since we moved to Yorba Linda over 10 years ago. My kids are now 14 and 17 years old and rave about Dr. Hamaty and his staff. They have had a filling or two, but never experienced any pain or discomfort, and my wife, who has a very low pain threshold, raves about Dr. Hamaty, and Julie his dental hygienist!
Dr. Hamaty and his staff go above and beyond the call of duty. The doctor even offered to stay late or come in on the weekend when my wife cracked a tooth! (…)

I just started going to Dr. Hamaty and I really like him. He’s very gentle and has a wonderful calming personality. His office is super clean and his staff is really nice. I’d definitely recommend going to him if you’re looking for someone new!!

Brandon Danisi (Source: Google)


10/10 would recommend. I am the world’s biggest dental coward after numerous prior horrible experiences. This guy is a master of his craft, incredibly gentle, and listens exceptionally well to any of your concerns. The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable, can’t speak highly enough about all of them.

Leilani Carpenter (Source: Google)


Dr. Hamaty has been working with me for over a year with a very complex situation. What I have found is that rather than just jump into a treatment, he has monitored the problem, he has referred me to check alternatives and has tried the least invasive treatments first. Finally, we settled on the best course of action and to date, the new crown has greatly improved the situation. I now am almost totally pain-free. I am so grateful that, though it has taken some time, I am finding relief. I wouldn’t have wanted it any other way….someone taking their time to check alternatives and to study the situation. Dr. Hamaty and his staff are always putting the care of their patients first. He also frequently calls to follow up on his work. I appreciate that!

Nolan T. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for years now and the experience has always been great. Dr Hamaty is always friendly and looks forward to seeing his patients along with making quality conversations with them. Everyone here is quick, efficient, and gets you in and out in a matter of no time! I definitely recommend coming to see Dr Hamaty, you won’t regret it. Best dentist in town!

C. L. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hamaty has been our family dentist for some time now and we couldn’t be happier with him. Dr. Hamaty and his staff make going to the dentist as pain-free and fun as going to the dentist can be. He is very good with children and both my son and daughter love going there. I’ve never sat in the waiting area for longer than 5 minutes and making a follow-up appointment is fast and easy. I had the pleasure of getting my teeth cleaned today by Samatha. She was the best. Easy going and professional. I would absolutely recommend this office to EVERYONE.

Moved to Yorba Linda 2 yrs ago and was traveling back to LA county for dental work. I recently had open-heart surgery that left me anxious about anything medical. I asked neighbors for a referral, but no one was very pleased with their dentist. I took a chance, read the reviews and Dr. Hamaty’s credentials and had a crown replaced. Dr. Hamaty is friendly, skilled and quick. The removal of the crown was truly painless and a temporary was fitted. There was no anxious waiting or time wasted. No pain and in and out without delays makes me think I found my new dentist. The new crown was fitted in place on my second visit in about half an hour and feels great. I am so grateful for the first experience after my heart surgery was so positive. Thank you, Dr. Hamaty and staff.

Dr. Hamaty and staff are fantastic! I, always, feel very comfortable and confident going to them. They are concerned about how you are doing through the whole exam or procedure. They are very concerned if you have any pain. They are like family and they make YOU feel like you are part of this wonderful “family.” I have been going to them for such a long time. I have never had a problem. Has anyone ever said that they enjoy going to the dentist?! I enjoy this one!!

Sharon Carter (Source: Google)


Dr. Hamaty is the best dentist ever!! I went to him after my tooth broke. I hadn’t been to a dentist in a long time from fear. I found him after reading a lot of nice reviews and he hasn’t proved them wrong. He fixed a chipped tooth. Fixed my broken tooth. Replaced my silver fillings and all were painless. The way he does the Novocain makes it very painless and easy. So much so that I moved my kids from their dentist to him also. They never give me a hard time about going to the dentist even to get teeth pulled or cavities filled. Dr Hamaty makes my kids feel at ease. And me too! If you are looking for a kind dentist who is not going to order things you don’t need and is painless including their cleaning hygienists, then Dr Hamaty is your man!

I have to say that Dr. Hamaty and Fernando are like 2 partners dancing! They each know exactly what is coming next and what tools to use! I recently had 5 (yes 5) fillings and Dr. Hamaty is effective and gentle. If you are scared of needles like me, he is the BEST SHOT-GIVER in the biz!!! So gentle. The lovely women who sit up front are accommodating and friendly, and even have helped me entertain my children during a cleaning. I will be with Dr. Hamaty and staff until he retires, and then I am hoping that Fernando will be my dentist! Thanks all! Keep up the honest, hard work.

Judy K. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Hamaty has been our family dentist since he moved to Yorba Linda and we love him. He is very professional and friendly. He doesn’t try to push you anything you don’t need. He makes sure your not in any pain during any procedure.Julie his hygienist is great. She is friendly and never seems to rush you and does a great job. Our daughter and her family moved to England years ago and always make an appointment with Julie each summer when they come to visit to be sure they get their teeth cleaned by her.

Austin W. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been with Richard Hamaty for about 12 years and I have nothing but great things to say about this business! The staff are very friendly and feel as though they’re members of the family. Richard Hamaty and his team are very well educated and super nice and helpful. As for their work, they’re amazing and really know how to care for their patients. The office itself just had a remodel and it looks absolutely stunning! Their amenities include comfy chairs, tv, magazines, AC, bottled water and a great experience!
If you’re looking for a dentist, do not hesitate to try Richard H Hamaty DMD!

Julie is very gentle with cleaning and Dt. Hamaty is very gentle with any teeth problems I’ve had worked on! I just had a filling the other day and my mouth was never sore even after numbing wore off.

Mackenzie S. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a teenager who doesn’t love going to the dentist, but Dr. Hamaty and his staff make my visits a pleasant experience, leaving me with nothing but a smile as I walk out the door. Dr. Hamaty always makes sure he is very gentle while he is working on me, and makes sure I am comfortable at all times. Julie, my dental hygienist, not only cares for my teeth, but also my personal life, making my appointments full of conversation, which makes them go by super fast. She also uses good flavoring to clean my teeth;) 10/10 would recommend this dental office.

I had avoided going to the dentist for over 2 years before a friend recommended Dr. Hamaty, so I gave him a shot. He quickly alleviated my concerns (both treatment-related and financial), and provided me the work I needed in a professional and effective manner. He worked with my insurance to make everything affordable and even accommodated my unpredictable work schedule. Also, his entire staff is extremely helpful and friendly. Thank you, Dr. Hamaty!

Adam B. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Richard Hamaty dentistry for a few years now and couldn’t be happier with the service and care they provide. Julie is my hygienist and does a wonderful job every time. Always providing quality care and attention to my teeth and gums, she is both very friendly and professional. I feel like I am getting the best dental care every time I come in and I appreciate the tips and suggestions she makes to improve my gums and teeth. The entire staff is great and creates an environment where I don’t dread going to the dentist. Dr. Hamaty is great and always straightforward with me along with being very nice and always professional. Thank you for being such a wonderful dental practice!

Dr Hamaty is the best!! Everyone is in our family goes to him. Julie, Molly, they are all great!!! Wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else. Between Invisalign, whitening, bi-annual cleanings and occasional fillings, we have all had great experiences. They are personable and fair and extremely professional!

(…) I was referred to Dr.Hamaty by my mother’s coworker. The first thing Dr.Hamaty had me do was rate my happiness with my teeth. He then mapped out all the dental work needed for me to have perfect teeth. He then told me what work needed to be done in regards to the health of my teeth and mouth and what would be cosmetic. Dr. Hamaty showed me precisely how much each procedure would cost and what my dental insurance would cover and what it would not. When I first started seeing Dr. Hamaty, I was a single mom w/ dental insurance but limited income. I needed to get a root canal desperately but I was hesitant because it would cost (too much) outta pocket. Dr.Hamaty allowed me to split it up into a few payments. I now enjoy going to the dentist. I adore Dr.H, Julie and all the staff!!

Mark T. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr Hamaty and Julie for about 5 years.  My teeth were in bad shape before now it’s clean and healthy!  Julie spends a lot of time detailing your teeth and she is always so upbeat and friendly.  Dr. Hamaty is a skilled dentist and super cool!  My whole family comes here and receives excellent care.  Molly is always professional and answers all billing questions promptly.

I highly recommend Dr Hamaty, our family loves him.
Two years ago, he put in a crown…last year during my regular check-up, I indicated to him that food was getting stuck next to that crown. He voluntarily offered to have the crown replaced free of charge so that I could be happy and not have any more problems. It has been perfect ever since. I really appreciated the “free of charge” replacement. That really confirmed what I already knew…he cares about his patients. He has been patient, kind and just plain awesome.

If you’re a coward, then this is the place for you! Dr Hamaty and his staff are so kind and gentle. They will go out of their way to make you comfortable and work at your speed. Erika (hygienist) gave me one of the gentlest cleanings ever. Thank you!

Dustin Martin (Source: Google)


When I moved to Yorba Linda I decided to change dentists. I have hated going to the dentist my entire life so I did a ton of research and found Dr. Hamaty on Yelp. He and his staff are awesome! I’ve been going here for over 3 years now. Started with a crown, that he did a great job on. Now I’m doing Invisalign (love having straight teeth), so I’m there every couple of months. I can now say I actually enjoy going to the dentist. Sounds crazy! It starts with Dr. Hamaty. He genuinely cares about his patients and it is reflected all the way through his business. I highly recommend Dr. Hamaty to everyone.

Terrific practice, friendly staff, clean and professional office. Dr. Hamaty is one of the nicest dentists I’ve ever met. He spent an inordinate amount of time getting me prepped and fitted “just right” for a new crown. Our whole family goes there.

Richard Hamaty has been, and will continue to be, hands down my favorite dentist of all time. There’s no one else like him. He’s kind, compassionate, warm, understanding, and takes the time to get to know each and every one of his patients. He tends to your needs (for me, I have sensitive gums and just an overall sensitivity to mouth work but he works gently with me), provides a listening ear, and never tries to force you to do something you don’t feel comfortable with.
Today he filled a cavity for me in record time and I felt NO pain or discomfort at all. He made sure to numb me enough to make it as comfortable for me as possible. I thank him sincerely for that and I’m eternally grateful for him (…).

Mari B. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Our family has been going to Dr. Hamaty for over 10 years. He is by far the best dentist I have ever seen. Whenever I have needed work done Dr. Hamaty listens to my concerns and uses an anesthetic that works well for me as I am very sensitive to Epinephrine, which is in certain anesthetics.
Dr. Hamaty takes his time and is very professional. I never feel rushed or that any procedure takes too long. He is gentle and makes sure that I do not experience any pain. DR. HAMATY DOES TOP QUALITY WORK.
My parents recently moved to Yorba Linda and they now see him too. He works well with patients that have Dementia, which is a real plus.
Also, I would like to mention that Dr. Hamaty’s staff is very friendly and professional as well. I appreciate that Molly, prior to any work being done, reviews our portion of the charges. Personally, we have never had an issue making an appointment or with their office accepting our insurance.


Dr. Hamaty studied Restorative Dentistry at the University of Pennsylvania, from which he graduated with honors. For him, his career choice was an easy one. “I became a dentist to help people and as a way to give back to the community.” After graduation he worked for a year at the University of Pittsburgh before moving to California. He worked in a general dentistry practice for a couple of years until finally, in 1999, he was able to fulfill his dream of owning his own practice.
