Douglas D. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a firm believer in “you get what you Pay for” and I want a Beautiful smile that looks like it was done in an absolutely high end dental office- And that’s just what I got.

Dr. Larijani and his staff were extremely thorough, and yes they did bring up every single thing I needed done to my teeth. But I appreciated it, had it taken care of and my smile shows the difference. ( As a business owner myself, I applaud the thoroughness and non pushy feel to their office sales)

I felt the difference in the office the moment I walked in. Dr larijani was professional yet hilarious, making me always feel right at home. Each one of the staff members greeted me with a smile, and the office is full of good looking professionals. That may sound shallow, but it makes the difference for me. Lexi was a great help in my process and made me feel very comfortable, explaining everything as we went along, and she was super sweet.

From my initial phone call to consultation, to X rays, Whitening, deep cleaning, exam, and finally my veneers, It was a great experience with absolutely nothing negative along the way.

Thank you all, I am in love with my new smile.

Nick M. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough about Dr Larijani!! He is kind ,gentle and more importantly fair. Everyone in this office has been incredibly friendly,outgoing and overall genuine. Dental work is never fun but these folks know how to make it so pleasant that you almost forget you are there for that dreaded cavity !
I would like to add special thank to Ms Amber Dental Hygienist at this office , every time I visited it’s been amazing, she know what she is doing. She is exceptional and highly recommended!
Thank you Santa Margarita Dental Group.

Our family has been going to Dana Point Dental for over 15 years! They are always professional and meticulous, leaders in their fields ( from the dentists, hygienists, dental assistants, to the terrific front office) but at the same time caring and friendly, they treat us like family. My children grew up with them and not once was ever apprehensive about going and they all have beautiful smiles now.  We love you!

My friend of 22 years introduced me Santa Margarita Dental and they were hands down the best dental office I have ever been to. Eddie, Reza and the rest of the staff there are so friendly that you feel like you’re going to visit friends not going to get dental work done. Doctor Larajani is very funny and makes you feel relaxed in the uncomfortable situation of being upside down in a dental chair. I will never go to another dentist now that I have been to this dentist. They have a new family member for life.

I’m so happy to have such an Awesome Dentist! Dr L is so nice and kind and makes me feel safe in his hands. To not be afraid of the Dentist is such a great feeling. Everyone there is so nice and friendly and helpful. Just a Great experience all around. My daughter is also a patient of Dr. L and she feels the same way about him. Now we will bring my granddaughter in too! I recommend them highly to everyone I know

Courtney P. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


After years of fearing going to the dentist, I have now found a dental group that puts me at ease.  Dr. Larijani is a compassionate dentist, making sure dental visits are a positive experience rather than painful and scary.  I had four crowns done and had zero pain or that nerve feeling when drilling.  I cannot recommend more highly, Dr. L and his staff, they are the real deal and definitely a place to go if you fear going to the dentist.  Thanks Dr. L and staff.

Dr L. Is a true master of Art when it comes to his work. He is gentle, kind and always makes you laugh and feel so comfortable. He won’t let you leave until his work is perfect and I really admire that. He is truly one of the most amazing Artists and Dentists I have ever known! Thank you everyone at the office for always making me feel like family!

Very pleased indeed! From my very first visit at Rancho Santa Margarita Dental Group. I was made to feel welcome and comfortable both by the friendly staff and the pleasant environment of the office. Dr. Larijani is an excellent dentist. He took the time to listen and to explain every procedure he was doing. He explains the pros and cons of the treatment so that I can make an independent and informed decision. Dr. Larijani is the first dentist who paused to ask me if anything hurt and it was the first time I had totally pain-free dentistry. The entire staff are considerate, caring and great professionals. I would highly recommend Rancho Santa Margarita Dental Group!

Paul M. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Larijani and his staff have looked after me since I moved to CA in 2007. The majority of the work has been “preventive maintenance” like cleanings and small cavity fills, but there were three more significant pieces of work that I needed to have done in the long term (onlays) as a result of cracked teeth from sporting injuries. Dr L and the business staff were very patient with me in scheduling the work when I was ready, and actually assisted me to change dental insurance to one who best covered me for the treatment I needed, and then we set about scheduling the work over a two year period. In addition, Dr L and team were very good at putting me at ease with the procedures being performed since I was still a bit shy of the dentist based on some previous bad experience some years back. All the major work is now completed and I look forward to returning to my preventive maintenance visits. Good job all round!

Amazing dentist. Loved the office staff from the front desk to the doctor. Everyone was amazing. I highly recommend!!

Michael D. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just got my teeth redone at the office. All I can say is the smile makeover has changed my life. For so long I keep putting it off. Partly because I couldn’t find anyone that can do the job right. Dr. L is not just a cosmetic dentist, he is a artist who settled for nothing but perfection! I can’t stop smiling now. Thanks for your professionalism and caring, Dr. L. I’m your patient for life.

Anne B. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to this dental office because I had an emergency (filling fell out causing sensitivity and pain.) My first impression were Eddie and Reza, both amazing! They immediately put me to ease and were easy to talk with. Then I met with Dr. L who was the same. He wants his patients to feel comfortable all the time, took his time to make sure I was doing okay (had a cracked tooth) and was so nice! Plus, he has a great sense of humor. I didn’t feel like a number but an actual patient. Never had that before at a dentist office. The second time I went in was to do a cleaning and put my permanent on. I wasn’t numbing up and ended up being there for a long time bc of that. Dr L and Eddie made sure I was comfortable 100% of the time. This office is simply amazing. I’m thrilled to know I have finally found a dental office that I will continue to go to for many years to come.

Now I no longer dread going to the dentist. The staff is friendly and inviting and Dr. L is the best. I just moved to the area not to long ago from Maryland so finding a new dentist wasn’t something that I was looking forward to but I felt right at home with the great people in the office which is to me a Very big deal.

Roberta A. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


We love Dr. L and the entire staff!  Like being with family when we go in for our appointments!  Both of us are in the final stages of our Invisalign braces and extremely happy with the results.  Our smiles are beautiful and our teeth and gums very healthy!  Amber has a gentle touch when cleaning our teeth and does a fantastic job!  Edie has taken care of us with our braces and he is wonderful!  …And, of course we love Reza – handles the important stuff – especially us!

Daniel B. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. L has been my dentist and my wife’s dentist for over a decade now.  I’ve had my fair share of dentists and this office is still my favorite.  
They’ve always been 100% respectful to me and the front office staff is warm and welcoming with any concern or question I have.  They always explain the insurance company estimate and make sure I understand the bills that go along with my treatment in the office(…).

Dr. Larijani and his staff are all excellent at their jobs. They are professional, friendly and always knowledgeable. I love that they care so much about the dental health of my family and me. I highly recommend them.

Reggae music on Fridays! Dr. L (because nobody ever says his full name) is kind and gentle. We moved to California in 2009. We went through dentist every 6 months for 2 years until we found Dr L. Finally a dentist who is attentive to the patient needs and not suggesting a bunch of cosmetic work. The whole staff is professional and courteous to my family’s needs.

This is the type of Dentist that you would expect to see in the magazines on airplanes. The environment here is calm, caring and as relaxing as can be for getting dental work done. The quality and craftsmanship here is unmatched on the highest level. The office is very clean and the entire staff is very nice and easy to work with. The office is never crowded and the work is never rushed all with patients in mind as they never overbook. I am always seen and cared for on time or early as the understated that your time is is important just like theirs. I often have to travel a great distance to get here, usually by airplane. Off all the dentist in the country, this is the one i prefer to go to because there isno substitute for quality. Of all the places that I visited and reviewed, I give this one the highest recommendations.

I had a routine cleaning , filling and mouthguard done and the process has never been as smooth (…). From the reminder the day before the appointment to the diagnosis to explaining the procedures step by step and finally taking time to answer questions with the biggest of smiles they have taken the entire dental experience to a new level.Thank you I appreciate it!!

Cody R. from Dallas, TX (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I just moved to Dana Point from Texas and were lucky enough to find Dana Point Dental Group. Dr. Larijani was so amazing. His friendly attitude and winning personality put me right at ease. I could genuinely tell he loves what he does and his patients. I was so impressed by all of his staff as well. What a phenomenal experience. I highly recommend this practice and Dr. Larijani and will definitely be using him as my dentist.

Christine V. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


On a recent visit to Dana Point Dental Group for a crown replacement and onlay, I had the most amazing experience.  Making this appointment was terrifying as I had a bad experience at a DIFFERENT dental office the year before.  Thankfully, I transferred my business to Dana Point Dental as Dr. Larijani TOTALLY put me at ease and before I knew it the procedure was done. But, the most important part was that I no longer fear going to the dentist.  I am grateful to Dr. Larijani for his patience and excellent service.  After my visit I came back for a cleaning and Kristina was very kind, professional and did an excellent job. I can’t forget to mention all of the lovely front office staff who are always and friendly and helpful.

Caitlin H. from Dana Point, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Larijani brought my overall happiness to another level! I sought out to find a dentist that would give me MY smile and Dana Point Dental Group gave me just that! Finding a dentist that I felt comfortable replacing my 4 top front teeth with veneers was intense pressure. As soon as I met Dr. L and his staff, I knew right away that I was in good hands. Couldn’t be happier with my results!

Absolutely awesome dental office. Clean, sharp and very comfortable. The doctors and assistants treat you so kindly and they do amazing work. I can’t say enough except I would give them a 7 star if there was one.

Kathy Martin (Source: Facebook)


Fantastic service! What a caring group of professionals. You know you are in the right place when your twenty-year old looks forward to visiting the dentist when she’s home from school. Thank you, Reza and staff!

Stacey Taylor (Source: Google)


Dr. Larijani and staff are the best!!! I highly recommend this office. They are very caring and treat you like family!!

Sima S. from Laguna Niguel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was so fearful of seeing a dentist. I had to have extraction of one of my molars. And the thought of that was so terrifying to me. Dr Larijani gave me some medication for the night before and the the day of treatment. He made it so easy and comfortable for me that I could not believe it. I just remember how thoughtful and caring the assistant was. If you are fearful of getting any dental work done, Dana point dental is the place to visit. He is caring, fun, and funny, and he is an excellent dentist. I highly recommend him. Thank you Dr. Larijani.

Jennifer S. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had a very positive experience with Dana Point Dental. I had been avoiding going to the dentist for several years, because of bad experiences I had when I was a child. So unfortunately, my teeth were neglected as a result. My experience with Dr. Larijani has been great. He is a professional. He is extremely knowledgeable and compassionate. I felt comfortable and confident in his care. He almost made my visits fun. (If that’s possible). I found the entire team at Dana Point Dental to be professional and friendly. Natalie at the front desk is a sweetheart! I highly recommend this office!

Joy K. from Trabuco Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am not a huge fan of going to the dentist. After years of not going, I found Dr. Larijani. He is warm, friendly, and makes you feel comfortable in his office. If you have to go to the dentist, he is the one to see. Reza, in the front office, makes you feel welcome from the second you walk in the door. Amber, their dental hygienist, is very thorough. She always makes sure you are comfortable. She is a huge fan of flossing, so be prepared that she will beat that into your head one way or another! I now floss almost nightly because of her, and I’m sure my mouth is happier because of it. Another thing I like about their office is that I get a text message reminding me of my appointment in advance as well as on the day of the appointment. Overall, I am happy to have found Dr. Larijani and Santa Margarita Dental Group.

Awesome staff all around. Took the time to understand my anxiety and fear of the dentist and make me feel comfortable. Definitely recommend because the care and dental work I had done was the most positive dental experience for me.

Ruth Tobin (Source: Facebook)


Love this group. Been coming here for over 6 years. Everyone is so professional, friendly. I appreciate they keep to my scheduled appointments, on time. Never had to wait more than 5 minutes. I’m always leaving happy.

Barbara T. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr L at Santa Margarita Dental for over 10  years and he has always strived to make feel comfortable with the procedures being done and to do his best job possible.   I believe the reason I have stayed there so long is because over the years they’ve gotten to know ME and are sensitive to my needs. He shows me compassion, understanding and he listens to my needs.

Rok J. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a great place for all of your personal and your families dental care needs!  Dr. Larijani, and his team of caring and friendly staff have really mastered the art of putting the patient’s needs as their primary focus, and go above and beyond to provide a positive and relaxing experience!  I have super sensitive teeth, and no other dental office has ever gone to the extent that the team at Dana Point Dental has to ensure a painless dental visit no matter if it’s a cleaning visit or a root canal!  
I know how important it is to find the right Dentist, and don’t normally write reviews, but if your in need of any kind of dental work, and looking for a trustworthy, friendly, knowledgeable, and a surprisingly unique and positive experience, then look no further!
Dr. Larijani and his team will take great care of you, like they have been of me and my family for the past 5 years!  In fact, we drive from (a far distance) to Dana Point, because once you go DPD you would never want to go anywhere else 😉

Dr. Larijani’s office is my favorite dental practice in Southern California. He is an exceptional dentist who provides excellent dental care services. His team is a group of wonderful, great professionals. They go above and beyond to make sure your visit is comfortable, pleasant and relaxing. I guarantee that you will be in the best hands here!

Scott S. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I have been going to Santa Margarita Dental Group for over 6 years now and couldn’t imagine going to a different dentist. Dr. Larijani is fantastic, he goes the extra mile to make his customers comfortable and has your best interest at heart.
The whole team is very friendly and accommodating, Reza and Eddie at the front desk always make you feel welcomed, and the dental hygienist, Dr. Amber, does a great job!
Highly recommend Santa Margarita Dental, would give them 6 stars if I could!

Absolutely the best Dr.’s in Orange County. Always on time for your appt. and the technology can’t be beat. The receptionist is the best out there. He takes very good care of you and is super kind to patients. SM dental group is far superior to any other Dr.’s I have ever been too. Very very satisfied with this group…
