What an amazing experience! The office is beautiful. The staff is excellent and lovely people to talk to. Dr. Curfew is an great dentist and takes pride in his work. I appreciated him following up with me later in the day to make sure everything was good with the filling he replaced. Thank you all, I look forward to my next visit.

Dr. Curfew is an amazing replacement for Dr. Harrell. I was nervous about how such an amazing dentist could be replaced but the transition was flawless. I love Dr. Curfew and his work. I can’t say enough good about this entire staff. As I’m writing this I remember always being nervous about the ethical behaviors of dentists, claiming work needs to be done when it really does not. Dr. Curfew and his staff have my complete trust, you’ll feel the same as you come to know them too

Absolutely the best! Love this team so much! They make going to the dentist so painless and enjoyable. I have had multiple cavities worked on and there literally is zero discomfort or pain. The office is beautiful, they have TVs above each seat that play relaxing outdoor shows (or your request). They also have handled my kids dental needs and my kids literally request and look forward to the dentist. This place is a gem to all of San Clemente!

I went to another dentist in town and was told I needed some heavy dental work. I decided to get a second opinion from Dr. Curfew and I’m so glad I did. The price of my dental work was better, and his office was so accommodating to someone like me who hates going to the dentist. I’ve been through my fair share of dentists over the years, and I’m happy to say I’ve finally found one that is competent, manages pain well, and is sensitive to the needs of the patient. I couldn’t recommend him and his staff more highly.

Dr. Curfew is an excellent dentist. He is gentle, efficient, knowledgeable, and he made me feel comfortable. In addition, he is kind and personable. I highly recommend this dentist!
Lastly, the office ladies were sweet and made every effort to accommodate me. I had a filling fall out and they got me in immediately. They were all so very kind!

Sarah V. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son loved the treatment and customer service he got from this dental clinic. Everyone was friendly he said and very accommodating. Dr. Curfew took real good care of him and the office went out of their way to schedule a cleaning for him as soon as someone had cancelled because he had told them he was leaving for college and initially all cleanings were booked for a month or so, we really appreciate that kind of care. Thank you, we have found a new dental office for the entire family

San Clemente Smiles is great.  We’ve been taking our family here for years and are super happy with the friendly staff, beautiful facility, great skill and care of Dr Curfew and ability to handle most insurance matters quickly.  Highly recommend!

I will look forward to having my teeth cleaned here in the future. The office is very clean and modern and the staff is extremely professional. They have over 40 years combined experience. Michelle cleaned my teeth and Dr, Curfew spent time with me and made me feel right at home . Please give them a try for your next appointment.

Kialy O. from La Quinta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today I had my very first appointment at San Clemente Smiles. Wow…. best “dentist” experience ever! I was greeted with the sweetest lady in the front desk, had the best teeth cleaning with a cute, young hygienist and to top it off, Dr. Curfew was amazing! He is easy to connect with and so knowledgeable and handsome! Thanks for this awesome experience and I will definitely be back in 6 months!

Dr. Curfew took over for the greatly loved Dr. Harrell and I’m sure everyone wondered how could anyone come close to giving the same type of care. I get asked all the time by people in the community if the “new” doctor is comparable. I randomly had the conversation today as I told my customer that I’d meet with him when I was done at the dentist. When my customers father-in-law (a dentist) retired, the family started going to Dr. Harrell. Anyhow Dr. Curfew is so good I’ve forgotten about Dr. Harrell (Sorry Harrell). I can’t say enough about Curfew and his entire staff. When I show up for an appointment it feels like I’m visiting family (you know the good family members that you actually like).

Annie J. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Curfew and his team go above and beyond to make their patients comfortable and happy! We were patients of Dr. Harrell’s for years. Fortunately my entire family, including my kids have had great experiences with Dr. Curfew since he took over the practice. Recently I had some worrisome and painful teeth problems. Dr. Curfew and his team got me in right away and did everything they could to fix my issues quickly and efficiently. My fear of getting work done has turned into immense gratitude for this kind, honest, and gentle team of professionals. From the women at the front desk to Lisa, Michelle, Christian, Lynn, and Kelly…and those I can’t name…EVERYONE treats you as a friend. I’d recommend this dental office to everyone in the San Clemente/South OC area!

I have never written a Yelp review, but I am so thrilled with my experience with Dr Brandon Curfew and all of his staff that I must.  I’ve been a patient for only a few months, but he has solved so many problems that I thought were chronic.  The lastest was today, Saturday, when a bridge just fell out of my mouth.  He and his assistent both came in on Saturday and permanetly cemented it back in place.  I walked out of the office completely fixed within about 2 hours from my initial call.

I was nervous about seeing a new dentist since we were new to the area moving from Illinois but everyone from the front office, to the assistant and hygienist to the dentist himself were very friendly, knowledgeable, and kind with state of the art equipment in a beautiful office setting to give you a great dental experience. Thank you, Dr. Curfew and staff!

Presley W. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is really amazing.  I had trouble making an appointment to see my regular dentist during COVID and went looking for another dentist.  I made an appointment to see Dr Curfew on a friends stellar recommendation and everything she said was true.  The front office staff are lovely and incredibly welcoming, my hygienist Jackie was very easy to chat with and did a very thorough job of cleaning and examining my teeth.  Dr, Curfew was kind, spent a lot of time with me as a new patient and ,clearly, is an expert in his field.  My husband also had a great visit, now time to start scheduling the kids appointments here!

Cynthia G. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


As soon as you walk in the door everyone makes you feel so welcome. The staff is very helpful with any questions you may have. I feel very confident that I have received the best dental care. I always leave with a smile. Thank you everyone at San Clemente Smiles!

I really appreciate the care that my family and I receive at this dentist office. I have always been anxious but since I’ve been having my teeth cared for at this office, I walk in with a smile and walk out with a smile. Very professional but warm, caring people from the front office to the dentist chair. Thank you

Dr. Curfew and his staff are a top notch crew. All of the hygienists I’ve experienced have been extremely gentle and polite and Dr. Curfew is one of the kindest straightforward professionals I’ve interacted with. I get my teeth cleaned here regularly and have also had Invisalign and teeth whitening done here. I highly recommend this team for all your dental needs!

I can’t say enough wonderful things about this office. I have been with them for a very long time, and they treat you like family! It’s such a nice environment that I actually was MORE relaxed after I left their office. Not many people can say that they find their dentist relaxing! They are always understanding and kind and they do BEAUTIFUL work. AND I have never had a single painful experience with them. Seriously. They are FANTASTIC!

Matt F. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Curfew and the entire staff did an outstanding job. This was the best dental experience I have had. They are extremely nice and welcoming people that make the experience enjoyable. I had not been to the dentist in over 2 years and was very nervous. I recently moved to San Clemente and the office got me an appointment with short notice. I walked out of there feeling positive and feeling good about returning to the dentist on a frequent basis. Highly recommend.

Dave F. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to the dentist in 12 years. They did a great job of making me feel welcome and relaxed. Really liked this company. No pushy sales pitches. Kind, pleasant people. Great customer service. Our whole family is happy with Dr. Brandon. I got a cavity diagnosed and fixed in one day. Super fast. No pain. Also, seemed like a very modern and clean office

Absolutely LOVED my cleaning here yesterday. Service is phenomenal, prices are fair, and they are easy in helping you make the right decisions. I will be a long-term patient at San Clemente Smiles

I was a patient here when Dr. Harrell was at the helm and honestly hadn’t been to the dentist for a few years. I’m a bit of a “dentophobe”. Well, I popped a filling out 3 days before leaving on a trip and really hoped that somehow Dr. Curfew and his team could “squeeze” me in for an emergency repair before my trip. Left a late night voice mail in hopes I would hear back when they opened the next morning. Much to my delight, I got a call from the office at 8:45 the next morning offering me a slot for “2:30”, which of course is the perfect time to visit the dentist (lame joke- “tooth hurty”). I arrived and was taken care of by the staff and met Dr. Curfew all of whom eased my “dentophobe” fears and treated the issue quickly and were very informative. I strongly recommend these folks if you want to find a kind, gentle, knowledgable dental practice right here in San Clemente! Thanks everyone! You saved the day!

Andrew S. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Curfew and staff are amazing. They are really nice and welcoming into their office. Lacey the dental hygienist cleaned my teeth on my first visit and she was awesome. I didn’t feel a thing she was very gentle and always asking if I was ok. I went today and Dr Curfew fixed my 4 front teeth he did a great job and again making me feel very comfortable and relaxed. Can’t wait for my Invisalign to come in make my smile even better. Dr Curfew will always be my go to dentist as long as I live in San Clemente. Everyone should come here if you are in the San Clemente area.

Dr. Curfew’s office is the best of the best!!! Going to this dental office is a pleasure!!! The staff are all friendly, warm, caring and competent ladies who do a great job!!!!! Thanks Dr. Curfew and staff for making going to the dentist such a really pleasant experience !!

Dr Curfew is great. He has worked on all 3 of my kids and done really well with them. My 5 year old had to have a cavity filled and Dr Curfew was able to do it and my son didn’t even cry. It was a real relief to see that he was patient and made sure my kids were comfortable. Will definitely be going back.

Christine S. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I actually enjoy going to the dentist now! and that’s a miracle.  Everyone in the office is so kind and friendly and makes you feel so welcome.  I’ve had multiple visits this year and every single appointment starts on time.  I asked Dr. Curfew how he does it when no one else seems to be able to, he said that they truly make an effort to make it happen everyday. I love that this doctor and his entire staff treat their patients like our time is just as valuable as theirs is.  Thank you guys, for taking such good care of your patients, I appreciate you all so very much!

Ryan A. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Curfew is nothing short of amazing. I had a filling pop out on Sunday and his staff had me in Tuesday morning. I thought I was going to have to wait till the end of the week. Dr Curfew was thorough and made sure that everything felt normal before I was done. Thank you for excellent care and thank you to your friendly staff for a pleasant experience.

I have had lots of dental work growing up and am not a fan of going to the dentist. I have had many bad experiences at other dentist office. i decided to try San Clemente smiles. The staff was all very nice and the office is extremely clean. I had to get a root canal and Dr Curfew was very nice and explained everything to me and made me feel at ease. they also have your own big screen TV to watch NetFlix on while they are working on you which is a nice bonus. I recommended him to all my friends and family. Dr Curfew is a Dentist you can Trust.

Just took my twin 5 year olds in for their first cleaning and x rays. Lynn was so sweet and patient with them and made their first experience in the chair so easy. She had clever sayings and “tricks” to get the kids to do what she needed them to do. Dr Curfew was professional and kind. The office staff was very friendly and the office was clean and easily accessible. I was in and out in an hour and a half with smiling kids and a really great first experience. I will be recommending Dr Curfew and his staff to local family and friends.

Scotland R. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


The entire staff at San Clemente Smiles is so nice and professional.  They work really hard to schedule appointments that work for you, and do a fantastic job of billing with your insurance.  Dr. Curfew is incredibly skilled with procedures and treatment options.  He takes his time with every move and always makes sure you are comfortable.  Hygienists are all skilled and very friendly.  Our family has been going to this office for years and highly recommends it.

I just love this office! I always have a wonderful experience and feel so welcomed. I was able to meet Dr. Curfew yesterday and know I am in good hands. I had my cleaning done by Michelle who was super friendly and has a great vibe. Thanks Team, I would highly recommend this dental office to everyone I know.

David U. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Curfew is the best.  I moved from the Valley and could not see my previous dentist as it was to far from my home.  Dr. had patience to listen to the issues I was having with my jaw.  He gave me a game plan to address the problem.  The Staff was also fabulous.  I am so glad I have found a great Dentist in my new home

Dr. Brandon Curfews’ team at San Clemente Smiles are exceptional in every capacity.

From the ease of making appointments, to the friendly and professional ladies at the front desk, to the genuinely kind, caring and knowledgeable Dental Hygienist (Jackie) I cannot recommend this practice enough!
