One thing I always make sure is that I have a good dentist because I like to keep my teeth in good condition! I’ve been a patient of Dr. Mendoza’s for a little over 6 years. I came across this dental office because of the proximity to one of my previous residences. I enjoy the hassle free scheduling-lately they’ve began implementing more texts and online profiles to make/reschedule appointments which is great for the busy person! Dr. Mendoza is great! He takes his time getting to know you and your pearly whites! very patient, makes sure your questions are answered and that you are o.k during procedures. He’s funny and professional. He has made his office aesthetically pleasing & provides a relaxing environment which helps those who aren’t too thrilled when they visit dentists. April is great! I’ve had the pleasure of dealing with her since my first appointment, she’s always available to answer insurance coverage questions as well. Lauren is awesome too! She made it possible to get me in twice when I had a dental emergency. I’ve referred family, friends & co-workers to their practice because I know they will be taken care of.

My two greatest concerns whenever I move to a new city are finding a new barber and finding a new dentist. it took me a while to find a barber that i like here. however, when it came to finding a new dentist in Long Beach I got it right on the first try. The staff at Dr. Mendoza’s office are all wonderful. they were more than helpful with any questions that i have had in my encounters with them and have been completely transparent with me. which i can appreciate. the environment  is super relaxing and if I could stay on the couch in the waiting room all day, i probably would (it’s that comfortable.

I have a genetic condition and have required extensive dental for over 40 years. I have been seeing Dr. Mendoza for about 10 years now.  His work is precise and professional and he works with the utmost care and quality. Equally important is that he and his staff are wonderful people. They treat you like a family member and will go out of their way to be flexible and accommodating. My husband recently needed to find a new dentist and came home after his first appointment with Dr. Mendoza with noting but praise for the doctor and his staff.

Doctor Rudy Mendoza is Amazing his work can only be described as impeccable ! You rarely ever hear anyone who looks forward to dental visits! I truly can make that statement  Love the professionalism and efficientn of his staff. I highly recommend Dr. Mendoza , plus the decor let’s not forget to mention the ambience of his office ‘fountains ‘air purafiers and treasures from all around the world ! You must visit.

From my entire life, this is the best dentist I’ve seen. Dr. Mendoza is extremely cordial, nice, funny, and professional. This was my follow up appointment today and I was seen by his hygenist (forgot her name she wears glasses) and she was super sweet. While she was cleaning my teeth she kept asking if everything is okay and made the experience less painful as she could. The office itself is SUPER ZEN! I love the Japanese garden view and the water fountains in the front. The seats are also so comfy I could have fallen asleep. It definitely helps if you have anxiety about visiting the dentist, Dr. Mendoza’s office is the most welcoming. His staff is friendly as well and does their best to help you out. I highly recommend seeing him if you need dental work!

Today was my first appointment with Dr. Mendoza. He was very kind and gentle, explaining some trouble spots that I will need to watch. Norma is very friendly and nice to chat with, and Kim is sweet and a thorough hygienist. I’m glad to be able to get my teeth whitened in the office! I look forward to being a regular patient here. Thank you!

Andrea D. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the BEST dental office around! I chose Dr. Mendoza to be my new dentist this year after neglecting my oral hygiene for far too long. From my very first visit when I knew I had to have a root canal to my most recent visit for a cleaning, I have felt well cared for by Dr. Mendoza and his team every time I walk through their door. I never thought it would be possible to look forward to my next dental appointment, but now I do! Dr. Mendoza has a great personality, and I’ve done more laughing and joking with him than wincing or feeling scared while in his chair. Norma is awesome–so caring and professional. Shout out to Corina for scraping three years of plaque off my teeth and tolerating my endless questions about dental health. April at the front desk is a gem. The whole team feel like my newest friends. If you’re wavering about which dentist to choose, you’ll thank yourself for choosing Dr. Mendoza.

Spencer L. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


Folks, I visited Dr. Mendoza this morning and I am now a forever fan. Dr. Mendoza explained every procedure that he was going to perform and told me that if I ever felt pain to hold up my left hand and he would stop immediately. Long story short, even though I was in his treatment room for a long time (due to my own oral health mistakes) I don’t have any pain after my treatment, and although I am far too old to be ‘gung-ho’ and do something stupid, I didn’t miss any of my fantastic life at home with my wife and 2 relatively behaved canines. Two thumbs up! for Dr. Rudy Mendoza. P.S. Norma and April and Lauren are fantastic too!

Lynn O. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a satisfied client of 7 years! Thanks to 1-800-Dentist, they connected me with only The BEST Dentist in Long Beach! Dr. Mendoza is incredibly experienced, uses the newest technology, and really looks out for the best interest of his clients. He keeps an eye on my old fillings, will be proactive when he anticipates a problem, but won’t proceed with anything unnecessary. I love his sense of humor, too! He’s like the cool uncle you wanna sit by the bar with & share adventure stories! Lol 😀 I’ve had to come in more frequently during my first years due to my bad genes and wear-n-tear, so I quickly got on a 1st name basis with everyone there! April runs the front desk & has to be the one to break down any extra costs. Norma, the assistant, is super nice & nurturing! And there is a new, younger dental hygienist, Kim Ngyuen, who is beyond kind, gentle, yet thorough! They will call to remind/confirm your appointment about a week in advance as well. As soon as you walk in, you’ll get a sense of tranquility with the sounds of mellow music & water fountains flowing through out the place. The zen garden, therapeutic aroma and Eastern decor also really set the mood that there’s nothing to be anxious about! You’re in excellent hands at Dr. Mendoza’s dentist!

Lindsay G. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mendoza is amazing. His entire staff makes you feel at home, and he truly cares about his patients. He has seen me after hours last minute when I was freaking myself out over a possible infection. He made sure I had all my questions answered, and was always there for any other inquiries I had! His office worked with me financially and allowed me to break the work I needed up so I could afford it. I felt NO PAIN at all when getting my work done. 100% would recommend! Have another appointment next month, and don’t even have the “white coat syndrome” like I used to. This office is amazing and Dr. Mendoza is the bomb.

For some reason, even though I’m pushing the big 30 I still have baby tooth. Its in the back so nobody notices it, until I start showing it off at parties anyways. There is no adult tooth underneath, and if I lose it, I’ll be forced to either have some kind of bridge work done, or get a fake tooth implanted. Neither sound fun, and for some reason I’m kind of fond of my baby tooth, we’ve been together a long time, so when the dental hygenist (who is actually a dentist herself) told me i had a huge cavity not on the top or even the side of the tooth, but on the bottom along the gum line, I started to get real nervous. Dr. Mendoza checked out the Xrays, confirmed her finding and asked me what I wanted to do. He didnt flinch or fuss when I said “keep it”, he just got to work. While he admitted it was a challenge, and at times seemed genuinely perplexed by my freak tooth, he did save it. Apparently baby teeth and adult teeth are different in many ways, including the nerve endings. Aside from saving my baby tooth, he also cleaned up all the little tiny chips years of extremely agressive childhood teatherball playing had caused. They were tiny and I had really never even noticed them until he pointed them out. I also never wore my retainer, so some of my teeth’s former straight glory had been lost. I was nervous when I heard the file, it sounds kind of like a drill, but 10 minutes after he started, he told me he was done, and showed me my newer straighter grin. Since then I’ve been smiling at everyone, and everything, every single chance I get!

I haven’t been to the dentist in a very lonnnng time. Now that I have benefits through my job, I have been on a search of a new dentist and came across Dr. Mendoza’s office. I had my first appointment for an exam on my wisdom teeth and the service was beyond excellent! April and Kim are so sweet and very welcoming. Norma is great as well and so helpful. Dr. Mendoza made me feel very welcomed as a first timer and answered all of my questions and concerns. I also love the atmosphere of the office. It’s so zen and relaxing and makes you forget you’re at the dentist. I also love the zen garden — a nice touch of detail! I’m so happy I found a great new home for my teeth!

Todd Z. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr Mendoza for over 10 years and I cannot say enough great things about him and the amazing staff!  From dental emergencies to cleanings to dental devices I always feel extremely well taken care of.  The entire Staff is friendly, professional, thorough, and caring.  Also, the office is serene and beautiful, and making appointments is a breeze.  By far the best dentist I have ever seen!

Billy K. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Haven’t been to the dentist in a while and decided to get my teeth checked. There were a lot of options in LB near my apt but i decided on Dr. Mendoza’s office because something about just felt right. Im glad i did because it was one of the most laid back dental exeriences ive ever had. Everyone here made me feel very relaxed. I unfortunately had a cavity and Dr. Mendoza fixed it right up. It was totally painless and expertly done. Thanks again for the great service!

Roschelle B. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have known Dr. Mendoza for over 15 years, and he is simply the best! What I appreciate the most is that he explains things thoroughly before, during, and after every procedure which helps put me at ease since I know exactly what is going on. He is very professional and ensures you are comfortable and not experiencing any pain. The staff is also warm and accommodating — overall, a great team!

Dr Mendoza is the best dentist I have ever had! He truly cares about his patients and it’s as if he knows his them for years! His staff, receptionsits, hygienists etc are all very helpful and extra accommodating to their patients. I found him through my insurance who recommended him because he was close to my area. In the past I would go to Fullerton or Orange for mediocre dentists however, Dr. Mendoza is the cream of the crop. I have gotten cleanings, deep cleanings, root canals, teeth whitening and night guards from him and everything has been GREAT!! Thanks Dr. Mendoza!

Stephen B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr Rudy Mendoza for over 25 years. I originally met him on one 1-800 dentist and had no idea what I would be in for. He is a true artist and cares for his patients. I had some very major gum disease issues which through his guidance have since been healed. In addition, his cosmetic dentistry has been outstanding! At a party I had a cosmetic dentist comment on how natural my teeth look and he thought that I had no work done. Go DR. Mendoza!

Jason Mullen (Source: Google)


Nasty impacted wisdom tooth, turned into dry socket. Doc saw me a number of times on short notice (24 hours or less), saw me once when the office was closed, checked in with me after each procedure, referred me out next day to specialists. And he’s a riot to talk to. Amazing people. This is my forever-dentist

Shannon P. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Mendoza’s for a couple of years now. Let me fill you in on my dental history. I had not been to a dentist since probably kindergarten or 1st grade. My single parent household did not have much money as I was growing up, so we would only go to the doctor for emergencies. And once I became a working adult, I never had health insurance at any of my jobs. When I finally obtained a job with benefits, I still put off visiting the dentist because I was afraid of the out of pocket costs. I had heard horror stories of out of pocket payments, even with the help of insurance. I knew I couldn’t put it off any longer because in 2018 I developed a sizable hole on the top of one of my back molars. I did a lot of research on dentists before I called Dr. Mendoza’s office to schedule an appointment. I explained that I hadn’t been to a dentist in nearly 30 years. They were very reassuring, and I had an appointment lined up in no time. It was my first time getting dental x-rays, which showed how much damage my tooth was suffering. I would need a root canal, which they would be able to perform right away. Dr. Mendoza was so kind and gentle during the process, and always made sure I was ok and comfortable throughout. He made me laugh, and dispelled any fears I had. He took the time to ask me questions about myself, and get to know me as a person. I was surprised at how painless the procedure was!!! Now that I have had a root canal, I can say I would rather have a root canal than deal with a lot of other things in life LOL! Before the procedure started, April at the front desk brought me the invoice showing how much I would have to pay out of pocket, apart from my insurance coverage. I literally started crying, I was so grateful, because the price was so much less than I had feared! Dental work is not cheap, but it was way more affordable than I had ever imagined! I returned to the office a couple weeks later when my crown was ready, and had it installed. I like to refer to it as my bionic tooth. I have been back to the office regularly for my biannual cleanings. It is always a breath of fresh air to see April, the dental hygienist Teresa, and Dr. Mendoza. They truly treat you like family, and are some of the kindest people I have ever met. I wish all doctors and staff, and people in general, were as wonderful as they are! At the time of my writing this, I recently lost my job. They moved up my next biannual cleaning to see if my insurance would cover it before it ran out. It did not, but again, the out of pocket cost was incredibly affordable. I left the office that day feeling deeply cared for, as I do whenever I leave Dr. Mendoza’s office. So even though I don’t know when I will have insurance again, I feel good knowing I can still go in for whatever dental care I need. And did I mention they have a zen garden?!? The energy in the office is so calming and serene. The decor is gorgeous, and many of the items you see there have been contributed by Dr. Mendoza’s patients. It is my favorite Dr’s office by far. If you are scared of the dentist, scared about the cost of dental work, or are just looking for a new dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Mendoza and his incredible team! I truly could not have asked for a better doctor, and am so grateful to have found him! They are THE BEST!

Talia R. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Mendoza and his staff are professional, knowledgeable and thorough. They were so accommodating during a recent dental emergency, went to great lengths to get me in quickly and I’m forever grateful that something I’ve dreaded would be an ordeal was made so easy and seamless. Check up and cleanings are always thorough, which I love. The office is calm and lovely, parking is a plus. The doctor himself is wonderful- friendly, knowledgeable and does wonderful work.

Kiki D. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Mendoza for over a year now. Everything from my general cleaning to my aligners has been been a breeze. Dare I say relaxing! The entire staff is incredibly inviting and on top of their game. April is a gem and will take excellent care of you. Since I started with Dr. Rudy I have straighter, whiter and brighter teeth! If you need a reliable, friendly, and easy to work with Dentist, this is the place!

Johnny C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Mendoza and team for many years.  First thing I’d say is Doc has made going to the dentist something I used to dread to something I feel good about.  For dental problems small and large, Doc shoots straight, doesn’t “oversell” you, and the work he does is first class…..if something is not just right, he takes care to make it so.  Doc and team make you feel like family.  I have recommended many friends over the years, and they have all been pleased!

Will A. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t ever use yelp, but I wanted to share my experience with  Dr. Mendoza and his staff. I had put off going to the dentist for a long time, which made me even more reluctant to make an appointment. He and his staff immediately put me and ease and made me feel comfortable. He explained every part of procedures and treatments very clearly and answered all of my questions. His office is a very warm and friendly environment. I wish I had not procrastinated going to the dentist after my first appointment. I feel Dr. Mendoza is a true “find” and I wanted to share my positive experience and thank his whole office.

Robert J. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dentist Rudy Mendoza is the best dentist you’ll meet. Very kind and helpful with questions. You can tell he really cares about his clients. His staff are also very kind and gentle. Glad I found a great dentist close by too. And the calming zen rock garden views also help!

Brieanna C. from Stratford Square, Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


He’s such a great provider! He keep working on my sensitive teeth multiple sessions without charge until the issue was no longer there. He’s also very friendly and personable. Referred a friend and he was happy as well. Def recommend!

Dr Mendoza’s office is truly an oasis of peace and tranquility.  From the time I entered, I dealt with nothing but intelligent, competent and caring staff. Fortunately,  Dr Mendoza is the finest dentist I have ever dealt with especially since I was seeing him to correct another dentist’s errors. I received the best dental care, by the finest staff and was treated with dignity and respect.  I highly recommend Dr Mendoza to anyone that plans to keep their smile.

Ashley C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wasn’t happy with my last dentist and decided to look for a new one; thankfully I came across all these great reviews of Dr. Mendoza. On my first visit I not only felt very welcomed by him and his staff, I was also impressed by the clean and zen office environment and felt at ease with Dr. Mendoza. He is knowledgeable in a down-to-earth way and seems to have a holistic mentality, thinking of the entire person and body and not just ‘another set of teeth’.  All of his staff was wonderful and friendly. They explained everything they did while doing it (so important to me!), were calm and thorough, and transparent with their treatment plans. I was also pleasantly surprised he also offers whitening at a great price. I’m so glad that I made the switch!

Rachel C. from Apple Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had such an AMAZING first time experience at Dr. Mendoza’s practice. First impressions were inviting & calming. Each one of his staff members were so personable & I could really tell the loved working there. Dr. Mendoza made me so feel comfortable & made sure all my questions were answers. I’m so excited for my next visit.

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


I had two appointments here- one for an exam/cleaning and the other for a filling/x-rays. I had a great experience each time. Dr. Mendoza takes a personal interest in his patients; He doesn’t rush through the appointment and is very considerate (& funny!). I highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for an honest dentist that does great work.

Adrian T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is literally the best dentist I’ve ever been to and I’m very picky. Dr. Mendoza has given me several fillings and I have been totally satisfied with his work. The hygienists have also done great work for me. They go to great lengths to make sure you’re comfortable (asking if you want to adjust the AC, giving you an ipod with headphones to listen to Pandora, and all the rooms look out onto their Japanese style garden!) and they are always honest and friendly with you which is super important to me. This team has restored my faith in dentistry!

Nancy F. from Los Alamitos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Mendoza for over 20 years and there is no finer dentist in my opinion. Not only is he highly regarded as an expert in cosmetic and restorative dentistry, Dr. Mendoza is   just a great guy, warm and engaging and always willing to help. The staff is great too! April and Norma have worked with Dr. Mendoza for years and are very knowledgeable. New dental hygienist, Kim is a great addition to the staff using ultrasonic equipment for cleaning that really makes the experience so much faster and pain free vs. traditional cleaning methods. If you want a great dental experience I highly recommend Dr. Mendoza & staff.

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


I just started going to Dr. Mendoza’s office after a (too long) break between dentists. My initial impressions are great. The office offers a pleasant, calming environment, but more importantly all of the people I’ve seen and talked to so far have been really nice. They genuinely seem to care about the dental well being of their patients.  I look forward to seeing Dr. Mendoza and his staff for the foreseeable future.

Sandy T. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


There are not enough words to describe how amazing Dr. Mendoza is!!! I had a very bad Intermatic experience with Dr. around the corner at American Dental, and Dr. Mendoza corrected everything the other dentist did wrong. Not only was he kind and patient with me, he was also funny and very thorough in his explanation with everything he was doing. He is very knowledgeable and has been working for over 30 years. His office is extraordinary and gorgeous, there is even a Japanese garden that you look onto while having work done!! Prices are very reasonable and staff is so kind and patient!! I’ve never said this, but I can’t wait to be back!

I love this place! Every one is so friendly and the interior is very relaxing. I am very satisfied with the service. The dental hygienist is very sweet, knowledgeable and patient considering my anxiety of going to the dentist. Dr. Mendoza is very professional and listened to my concerns. I highly recommend this practice.

Elizabeth B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for a new dentist and looking up dentists on my insurance website at random. I decided to try out Dr. Mendoza’s practice and from the first phone call they have been nothing but helpful. Dr. Mendoza was friendly and thorough and both he and his support staff answered all my questions and made me feel comfortable. Also their teeth whitening service is only $50 which is a plus!
