I cannot begin to explain how happy I am with my new smile!! Dr. Wheatfill not only did an amazing job and took his time turning my very crooked front teeth into a movie star smile, he explained everything he was doing and made me feel extremely comfortable every step of the way. Dentists have always made me nervous, but I would recommend to absolutely anyone that they should use him. I came all the way from Arizona just to see him! If I could give more than 5 stars, I would, indeed 🙂

Love Dr. Wheatfill and staff. Very friendly and take great care of their patients. I was referred by my colleagues and have referred others and glad that I recommended him. He makes sure that he gets to know you and your concerns about your feelings of being there. He calls after every visit to make sure that you are ok.

(…) Dr. Wheatfill is top-notch when it comes to dentistry. Not only is he, himself, friendly and personable, he does a great job resolving any issues we have had over the years. Even though he doesn’t profess to be a pediatric dentist, he has also worked on all my kids (ages 2-15) with great results! My kids actually look forward to going to see him! After having any work done, he always calls afterward to make sure you are feeling good and happy with the results. Through the years, Dr. Wheatfill has recommended other top-notch specialists in our area when it comes to other required professions, such as an orthodontist or an endodontist. I have ALWAYS been thrilled with the recommendations. I wholeheartedly recommend and trust Dr. Wheatfill and his staff.

(…) my previous dentist recommended giving up on the implant and doing a bridge. I was so disappointed. I didn’t want a bridge, I wanted a functional implant. So I called Dr. Wheatfill and told him about the situation. He agreed to try to help me to get the implant functional with a new abutment and crown. So with the help of an X-ray, Dr Wheatfill discovered that there was an after-market sleeve in the implant that was preventing the abutment from fitting into the implant. He was able to remove the sleeve, the abutment was fitted and a new crown put on!!! It’s perfect. I’m so grateful to Dr. Wheatfill for his skill.

If you are looking for a good dentist, I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Richard Wheatfill!!!  Dr. Wheatfill has been my dentist for nearly 40 years and has treated me many times even with some of the difficult dental challenges I have had.   I think Dr. Wheatfill is an EXCELLENT dentist.  And besides, that,  he is a genuinely good guy!

Dr Wheatfill and staff are just amazing! They are caring and compassionate. I speak for my husband as well, he literally hates dentists but when he met Dr Wheatfill he was really nervous but Dr Wheatfill made him feel relaxed and comfortable. I have been in the dental world for 35 years and Dr Wheatfill and his staff are by far our favorites!

Dr. Wheatfill helped me get over my anxiety about being in the dentist chair that goes all the way back to my childhood! I trust him, and so does my whole family! Donna the hygienist is great as well as the whole office staff, they are a great team!

Dezarae K. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Wheatfill is as good as it gets! It’s as simple as that. My husband and I have been taken care of by Dr. Wheatfill for the better part of 20 years now. The veneers were perfectly made, the dental work performed has always been top-notch and the attention you receive from Dr. Wheatfill and his Staff make you feel like you’re family. We both really appreciate the care and concern he gives during and after visits to make sure everything is ok. We wouldn’t go anywhere else! Thank you Dr. Wheatfill!

Alex C. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down to Dr. Wheatfill and his team. I was finally able to update my dental insurance just so I can go back and see him. Doctor Wheatfill explains to you step by step what needs to be done and I like that because the last place wanted an arm and a leg to do stuff I’ve never even heard of, didn’t even understand the procedures. All I wanted fixed was a broken tooth. Dr Wheatfill explained in detail what we can do and keep my mouth healthy (…).

After having so much trauma as a child, I’m so grateful I have found Dr. Wheatfill’s office! He is caring and actually cares about your dental health… I have been under his care for about three years and every time, I sweat on that chair like you might not even understand, but I trust him, he makes sure I am okay first and foremost! I have come crying to his office thanks to my TMJ problem (played basketball growing up, so you know how that goes) and they took me in and prescribed medication, they were so empathetic and caring.

I have been with Dr. Wheatfill several years and have never had a disappointing experience. All of his staff are very friendly, helpful and kind. I would not hesitate to recommend his office to any of my friends.

The hygienists and Dr. Wheatfill are wonderful, thorough and care about their patients. Kelly did a great job on my 3 year old’s first-ever visit. Thank you!!!

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


I have been coming here for over 10 years!! Dr. Wheatfill and his staff are great! He is a very kind and well-experienced doctor. He makes everything as painless as possible! his staff are always kind and do some of the best teeth cleaning! 100% recommended!!

Very friendly staff that work in a very professional setting. Dr. Wheatfill was very thorough in explaining the treatment and my hygienist Kelly was also very nice and professional. If you’re looking for a new family dentist I recommend Dr. Wheatfill’s office.

Excellent and friendly staff that take time to explain everything to you. Dr. Wheatfill takes the time to speak to each of his new clients and listens to their concerns. Great place to go to, especially if you are anxious about dental work.

Dr Wheatfill has an amazing touch in the dentist industry. I have been to 10 dentist maybe more. He has been the only one I have trust with years of work needed. The staff is just as amazing. Wanna feel at home? Don’t like going to a dentist? See Dr Wheatfill and all your worries about a dentist will go away! Thank you Dr Wheatfill for making me feel better about my smile!!!

By far the best dentist in town. I hate going and being in pain after. Not with Dr. Wheatfill, its pain free from the beginning to the end, even when you get home pain free. Check him out if you get a chance.

Sherry Zimmerman (Source: Google)


(…) I had never been treated with such compassion, and understanding ever in my life, they explained everything to me how important your teeth are, and the procedures I needed done. I explained that we are having tough times, and can only do what our insurance allows, and Brenda the one that handles all that business has been amazing and understanding and makes sure that each procedure is covered. I am so grateful to everyone there, to Jillian, and her understanding, Dr. Wheatfill and his sense of humor! Oh and ya, no pain, none! I almost fell asleep while he was doing a root canal! What? I am not kidding! I trust them completely, I am 52 years old and wish I found them a lot sooner than now! My kids are the lucky ones, because they did, thanks to me! haha So bottom line anyone looking for a dentist, a really good dentist, Dr. Wheatfill is your man! He is a good man and an excellent dentist! Also, he treats his staff, with compassion, him and Jillian work so well together, I really do appreciate that!

Dr. Wheatfill is amazing! He knows how to give you a shot so you’re not uncomfortable anytime from the beginning to the end. He has a heart ❤️ of gold and I am so thankful he is my dentist. Having been a cancer survivor my teeth have taken a beating also I used Fsomax which caused me some very deep cavities. I have seen a lot of dentists over the years he rates a 10 in my book! Thank you Dr. Wheatfill for taking such good care of me! He also has an amazing staff and a beautiful office!

(…). I for one hate and dread the dentist. But Mr Wheatfill and his team have totally changed my outlook on how I view dentist. Best experience ever. Usually when they numb you up so the dentist can do work, hurts. Richard Wheatfill has his own trick were you dont even feel it at all, and once the work is complete and you go home, you dont even need a pain pill, which is pretty cool if you ask me. Do your self a favor and go see this dentist, you wont regret it, I promise. Thanks you guys.

Another good visit and another good result. Dr Wheatfill has been our family dentist for a number of years. He and his staff are excellent, friendly and make a trip to the dentist office nice and easy always with excellent results

Cash M. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) My judgment of any medical practice is based upon the following factors:
Knowledge and Skill
Genuine concern and empathy
Office Environment and Demeanor of employees
Respect for the  patients time
Reasonably priced
Dr. Wheatfill scores a perfect 5 stars in all of these categories, and in addition, he went above and beyond the call of duty to take care of someone who is not even one of his regular patients.  Well, I certainly consider myself one of his patients now.  I am very impressed and grateful.  I have more dental work that needs to be addressed, and Dr. Wheatfill’s practice is the only dentist office I will consider.

Dr. Wheatfill is the nicest and the most considerate dentist I have ever gone too. He not only meets with you in his office to introduce himself and to let you know his qualifications, he also tells you about his family and how he runs things in his office. And after you have an appointment with him he ALWAYS calls the next day to see how you are doing!! 🙂 I have NEVER had a dentist do that to me. He is so thoughtful and wants to know if you are ok. He REALLY cares. Plus he is such a gentle dentist. He is so careful not to put you in any pain. I would totally recommend him. Everyone in the office is so friendly from Brenda in the office to Kelly the dental assistant. They are all so nice and so cheerful to everyone. One last thing is that they never tell you that you need more work then you do. They only do what is necessary for your teeth that need to be done. So happy with my dentist!

I have had the good fortune of having Dr. Wheatfill as my dentist for several years. He is professional, kind and reliable. I have complete trust in his work and advice. And is staff exudes warmth and competence. They make you feel like family. I highly recommend Dr. Wheatfill and his staff for your dental needs. You will not be disappointed.

My son has been going to Dr. Wheatfill for ten years.  We have always been satisfied with the quality of this work.  His office staff are all outstanding and easy to work with.

Dr. Wheatfill is not your typical dentist. He is straight forward, wants you to focus on prevention, and isn’t going to put you on a mega guilt trip if you aren’t a perfect flosser. 🙂 He recommends the work that is going to keep your mouth happy and pain-free. Thank you!

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


Great skilled dentist that is gentle and fast. The staff is wonderful and kind. Customer service is outstanding and concerned about your visit to dr Wheatfill. I highly recommend this dental office.

Lisa A. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) I went to Dr. Wheatfill for a 2nd opinion – boy am I glad I did! Dr. Wheatfill recommenced replacing my current filling before jumping to a root canal…makes me wonder why my previous dentist didn’t try that, as they were the ones that performed the filling, to begin with. Upon checkout, they took the time to go over costs and explain options with me, something I didn’t get at my previous dentist’s office either! I left there with a warm fuzzy feeling. This is a quality dentistry office! I’m going to have my husband switch to Dr. Wheatfill ASAP!

Debbie L. from Santa Maria, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr Wheatfield 25 plus years ago I live on the Central Coast now and have not been able to find a dentist I really felt comfortable with. I am traveling 300 miles just to go back to see him he put some beautiful crowns on my teeth 30 years ago that was knocked out when I was a young girl. I never have been able to find such a caring knowledgeable dentist as he is! I can’t wait to get back to see him I will follow up soon.

Kate E. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have gone to Dr. Wheatfill for over 20 years.  Kelly and Donna have cleaned our teeth while making the experience comfortable and very friendly.  Brenda, front office, greets us with a warm “come on in” and she is the last friendly person we check in with before leaving.  Dr. Wheatfill shows he personally cares for each patient, whether you have to see him for a follow-up tooth problem or not.

Ciara Delaney (Source: Facebook)


Everyone was absolutely WONDERFUL with our 8yo daughter. She has sensory issues and the doctor was so understanding. They suggested a solution that was less money for them, but a better solution for my daughter. I will be switching all my children over to Dr. Wheatfill!!

I have been a patient of Dr. Wheatfill for nearly 40 years. He an EXCELLENT dentist–I could not be more pleased with his services. He has always treated me fairly and with great expertise.. If you are looking for a dentist, I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Dr. Richard Wheatfill.

Sonia A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a new patient’s you don’t know what to expect when changing Dr’s after 20 years. I will start by saying that Dr. Wheatfill and his staff are the definition of what integrity, kindness and customer care should be. The detail in care and commitment to service is what sets them apart. My husband and I could go on and on but words can not express the experience we had and are so happy to have found him. We highly recommend this office to anyone who wants quality service and personal care!

I love coming here! I trust Dr. Wheatfill with my teeth. He has helped my husband and I always enjoy our visits. The staff is awesome as well!

If there is one person I trust to put a drill in my mouth, it would be Dr. Wheatfill. My husband and I have been going to him for over 10 years and we have referred family, friends, and neighbors to him. He is always staying on top of new dental technologies, but still maintains the feel of a family dental office, which I love. The best thing – if I ever have to get anesthesia, Dr. Wheatfill has a magical way of making it painless.
His office is clean and his staff is great. Kelly, his dental assistant, has done a great job with cleanings. Brenda, his office manager, is friendly and attentive. I wish I could give him 10 stars!
