Best staff and highly skilled Dental office Dr. Samara has the best office and Dental practice in Orange County! The positive impression starts with his receptionist Nicole – upbeat and very competent. Never had a billing or scheduling issue ever. Dr. Samara has great skills. It is clear that this is not his first rodeo, and I and my family have presented him with some unique challenges over the years. Clearly one of the most proficient dentist I’ve met. An often overlooked professional in most offices is the Hygienist. I need routine treatments and the Hygienist Nicole is exceptional. Wonderful disposition and very gentle and through care every time with her. I can’t sing enough praises. Most of my friends have complained about lousy service or bad attitudes at other Dental offices – not here. I always feel welcomed and appreciated. Give Dr. Samara and his team a try.

Sands Dental Care is by far the best dentist office I have ever been too. I had some tooth pain and they were able to fit me in the same day. Everyone win the office genuinely cares about you and does whatever they can to make your life easier. I can not recommend Santa Dental Care enough!

Raja N. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Would strongly recommend Dr Samra and his team. He is a thorough gentleman and come across as a person who cares about your well being – and does not try to sell you on the next best thing in dental care. Our hygienist Nicole is awesome. Overall a great experience.

I love this dental office. Great hours for working parents. Straightforward dental care with no frivolous “upgrade” hustles. Our young boys go here and they’re wonderful with them too! Ask for Kurin for cleanings – literally the best cleaning I’ve ever had.

Lisa L. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had neglected my teeth for years because of my fears. Dr. Samra was so patient with me and talked me through what was going to be the best for my health and my teeth. After his recommendation I did extensive cosmetic dentistry on my teeth, loosing lots of my own teeth, having to get partials, and caping my front teeth. I absolutely love my new smile. Dr. Samra and staff made this whole journey so pleasant and easy, they do genuinely care about you and your smile! I now have the best Dentist Office ever and see them routinely every 3 months to keep up with my dental hygiene.

I heard about Dr. Samra from a friend after having a severe painful ache on my front tooth and had to take over 8 painkillers to make it stop, turned out to be a root canal. I went to Dr. Samra and couldn’t have been more happier with the results and the care he took of it! Before going into his office I heard root canals are extremely painful, one of the most painful procedures and didn’t know what to expect. Under Dr. Samra’s care I had absolutely no pain during the whole procedure! And even after ….it is common that patients will take painkillers after a root canal because of the throbbing pain ….he prescribed me a bottle and I didn’t even take one!! So pleased and finally the pain was gone… And his office looked like a resort, the ambiance everything was incredible! Great dentist, great guy, and knows what he is doing…he has been doing this for over 25 years!

Dr Samra and his lovely team squeezed me in last minute for a minor emergency. We’re new to the area and didn’t have a dentist chosen yet. Not only did they help accommodate my schedule, they took great care of me, made easy thoughtful conversation and even fit in my cleaning while I was in the chair! Highly recommend!!

We love going to the dentist in our family because Dr. Samra and his team always make it a pleasant experience!! The front desk is always welcoming and friendly and the hygienists are equally engaging and good at what they do. We highly recommend this practice if you are looking for an excellent dentist, a highly trained and professional staff and an easy to find and park location! Both Nicole’s and Dr. Samra are WONDERFUL!!

Susan D. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samra is one of the best, I realized that after spending a few minutes with him at my initial consultation.  I have recently had to have quite a bit of work done due to years of neglect and experiences with bad dentists.  I had to have crowns, filling replacements and a root canal all previously diagnosed as needed for years but I have been unable to find a dentist I trusted enough and felt competent to tackle all of the work.  So I just ignored it until I could no longer ignore it.  My relocation to South Orange County and a relatives recommendation led me to Dr. Samra.  Over the last few months we worked to a plan and my budget to bring my dental work current.  Thanks to Dr. Samra’s competency, I no longer grind my teeth, have a terrible overriding metalic taste in my mouth all the time or have unnecessary eruptions of tooth aches ruining my day.   The fact that he is just so kind and concerned for your well being are wonderful extras.

Grew up (as many people did) fearful of the dentist. I can now say I faced and overcame my fear with the most positive experience. Ed Samra and his hygienists know what they are doing. Excellent service and work done. Very calming if you seem tense, and work with you rather than against you. Highly recommend their professional dental services!

Jessica T. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just renewing my appreciation for this office. They can always get me and my family in with all our different schedules. Lunch times, evenings, Saturdays. The staff is always pleasant and polite. It’s great to see the same hygienists over and over. Dr. Samra is gentle and is a perfectionist with his work, my teeth have never looked better. I actually look forward to my appointments.

John C. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Samra is always conscientious and does what is in the best interest of his patient, going the extra mile, consulting with or referring to other specialists when needed to map the best course of treatment. The staff is great – our family enjoys our visits to Dr Samra’s office.

John P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 8 year old boys and I continue to have great experiences with Dr. Samra and his staff.  Not only with the quality care but the bedside manner.  One on my boys has sensitivities to light, sounds, taste and has been no problem at this office. The hygienist walked him through every step with outstanding professionalism and patience.  Glad we found this office.

Lisa M. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I are moving back to the Midwest due to a job change. If we could bring one person with us, it would be our dentist. He is the kindest,  most gentle man. He also helped my Mom with her dentures. She had them for forty plus years and had never had them cleaned or adjusted. Once the bacteria was removed and they were custom fit to her mouth, she smiles all the time and she can eat an apple! She never knew they could fit so well! He and his staff are truly amazing. We will truly miss them.

I was so grateful that Dr. Samra was available for a Dental emergency on a Saturday because I was in unbearable pain. I was seen immediately and treated with such professional courtesy. Even though I needed serious dental work they didn’t judge me or make me feel inferior for having issues. They were very reassuring and even thought I don’t have insurance they provided me with a great affordable rate. Even though I was in pain when I got there I was treated so well and made feel so comfortable. I was in and out and left feeling no pain! I highly recommend Dr. Samra’s office for their great patient service and professionalism. Also the office is super clean and high tech. I have nothing but great things to say about this office and recommend them to everyone whether you have perfect teeth and just need a cleaning or like myself and need a lot of work done. The whole staff is great also very kind and courteous!

Rob G. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a great experience I had at dr. Samar’s office!!  Such a clean nice office with such a rad, helpful, and fun staff. They made me feel so comfortable! Being someone who’s scared of the dentist this isn’t easy. Nicole, the dental Hygienist did such a great job. She’s easy to talk to, so nice and pretty! I felt like a vip. Highly recommend to a friend! Coming back for sure.

Dr. Samra and his team are exceptional. From start to finish the staff makes you feel comfortable and at home. Dr. Samra does exceptional work and talks you through each step so you are prepared for the procedure. I have a huge fear of the dentist and Dr. Samra and team really helped me slowly overcome that by their thoroughness and constant care!

Larry H. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr Samra for over 10 years, and have always been impressed with his ability to do my needed dentistry efficiently and without any pain. I have had three bridges done. I would suggest the non-metal bridges which look great and really last. His staff is great, very accommodating, and always laugh at my stupid jokes (a real plus!).

Francie T. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samra, in my opinion and my family’s is the best! Before I started going to Dr. Samra I found myself cancelling appointments due to the fear of dentist!  Once, I actually, about two and half years ago, we found Dr. Samra, I actually now look forward to keeping my appointments. He is the most gentlest, kindest, efficient dentist I have ever been to in my 73 years of life.  He takes care of all my dental needs, professionally, thoughtfully and caring!  I personally and highly recommend Dr. Samra for your dental needs! he is conveniently located in Ladera Ranch!

Such a pleasant experience. Quick, efficient and thorough. Everyone is professional and communication is excellent. The office is clean and has a great atmosphere. The technology they use is cutting edge oh, if I have questions they educate me as to what’s going on with my teeth. I highly recommend them, Samra Dental Care

Been visiting Dr Samra and his assistants for over 12 years. I have always appreciated care and detail the team offers. Everyone from front desk to dental assistants over the years has been great. Dr Samra always sees and checks work before I leave. I moved out of the area and still chose to stay with the doctor.

Cathy K. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samra has cared for me and my family’s dental health for the last 7 years since we relocated to California.  I have had extensive dental work done by Dr. Samra, and I continue to be impressed by his skill/expertise, as well as his genuine, authentic approach to building client relationships.  He and his entire team, are always warm, friendly, smiling, and make you feel like you are the most important client of the day.  It’s not easy to find a great dentist, and I’m grateful to have found him.  I appreciate his commitment to excellence in his work, and the work speaks for itself.  I can’t recommend him enough to anyone needing dental care, from check-ups to cosmetic dentistry.  He has helped my family and I in every aspect, and we remain incredibly loyal to him.

Kim H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have had nothing but good experiences for the past ten years.  Even after moving from Ladera Ranch to Irvine almost 5 years ago, we continue to drive the distance because we are always pleased with everything from the professional and friendly staff to the consistently gentle, thorough, and excellent care we receive for optimum oral health.  Highly recommended!

Mona E. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samra and his staff are professional, courteous, and extremely warm. I had my teeth whitened by him, and I am constantly told that I have a beautiful smile. I have referred many of my friends to Dr. Samra and they have all come back very satisfied.

Emme W. from Ladera Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have finally found a dentist that I can truly put my trust in.  From basic fillings, to working with my nervous 7 yr old daughter, to changing my entire smile with veneers and crowns, Dr. Samra has done the best job I have ever seen.  He always make us feel comfortable, welcome, cared for and his attention to detail is amazing.  He really goes the extra mile to ensure that everything is done perfectly.  My husband, mother and step-father all love him too!  The staff is also incredibly accommodating and welcoming.  
I know that Dr. Samra really cares about his patients and I recommend seeing him to everyone and anyone!

Alice Jung (Source: Google)


When I switched dentists due to my insurance change, I was almost scammed out of $1,500 because they told me that I needed to get 7 fillings and a new crown. Since Dr. Ed Samra was my dentist before I gave him a call to express my confusion and he told me to come for a free consultation. He explained that I did not need 7 fillings or a crown and even let me know that my insurance should cover white fillings (the other office was going to charge me – cash only). If it wasn’t for Dr. Ed Samra, who is by far the most caring and ethical dentist I know, then who knows what might have been done to my teeth. Thanks Dr. Samra!

Estela E. from Montclair, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a fearful person when it come to dentists.  Even just a cleaning is stressful for me due to traumatic experiences as a child.  However, Dr. Samra is wonderful, once I voiced my concerns he took extra special care of me.  I have been going to him for some time now and have had several procedures done. Couldn’t be happier!  His staff is excellent, they work with my dental insurance and a keep in contact with me regarding appointments.  Its a great office and I’m glad to have found them.

Suzana T. from Los Alamitos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently had 3 wisdom teeth removed my Dr. Samra at the same time. NO SWELLING AND NO PAIN. The next day I was able to speak at a huge presentation.  Only took painkillers the first and second day. He made me feel very comfortable as I was nervous about getting all 3 removed at the same time, also because this was my first experience with him. TURNED OUT TO BE A MUCH EASIER PROCESS THAN I WAS EXPECTING.
one of the best dentist experiences i’ve had!

Kamal A. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ed Samra and the entire team at Samra Dental Care in Ladera Ranch are the absolute best!  Dr. Samra has been my dentist for over 13 years, he is very gentle and caring  and everyone at his office is always warm and friendly.  I highly recommend Dr. Samra, he is awesome and very professional.

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


Once again, Dr. Samra proves that he has the premier dental office in OC. Efficiently brought me in with no waiting and performed required services painlessly and with expertise. If you are new to the area, or are looking to upgrade your dentistry experience, you cannot lose with the office of Dr. Samra.

Adriane G. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Samra and his wonderful staff!! I first went to Dr. Samra a few years ago for the first time. I was SO impressed with my overall experience at his office from friendly staff, quickly confirmed my insurance, easy appointment making (love that they are open 7am – 7pm and send appt texts), my hygienist did a beyond amazing job cleaning and polishing my teeth and Dr. Samra is kind, knowledgeable and makes me so comfortable coming to his office. My insurance changed with current company after my first two visits a few years ago. It was devastating for me to find out my new insurance assigned me a dentist vs. where I could pick my own dentist. I went to two other dentists my insurance assigned me to and no one could even come close to Dr. Samra & his team. I am VERY pleased that my now new insurance has brought me back to Dr. Samra and his fabulous team! Once my insurance changed, they were the first ones I called to see if they accepted my insurance so I could come back! I truly believe finding an excellent dentist is a rarity today and I am very grateful with professionalism and excellence of Dr. Samra and his team!

Taryn H. from San Juan Capistrano, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samra and his staff have been so great! They were there for me during an emergency dental situation – a dog head butted me and knocked my veneer off! Everyone was so accommodating and seemed to genuinely enjoy what they do. I made them my regular dentist and am so glad I did. Scheduling is easy and they send text reminders too! Highly recommended.

Amanda H. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently switched to Dr. Samra’s office and I couldn’t be happier! From the first impression from the office manager, Nicole, to my new favorite hygienist, also named Nicole, Gabrielle the dental assistant, and certainly not least, Dr. Samra. Everyone is so sweet and accommodating.  They are open late, on Saturdays, and send reminder texts which is so great! Thank you so much Dr. Samra and Staff for always providing the best service!!

Anne C. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Samra has been my dentist for 25 years and I would not think of seeing another dentist. He is knowledgeable, caring, thorough and just an all-around decent doctor who I trust with my smile. An extra bonus is that his office and dental staff are efficient and competent. I am very grateful that I made my way into his office many years ago.
