Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Justin B. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a severe phobia of needles, and I have never felt more comfortable than under Dr. Yu’s care when I needed a cavity to be refilled. He is very personable, and his calm confidence got me through the worst part of the operation – the Lidocaine injection – without any issue. He went slowly and checked with me continuously, but still finished early (probably due to his technical proficiency). I truly felt he cared about how I was feeling and did his best to make me feel comfortable from start to finish, something I have (sadly) scarcely seen in this line work. He generally seems down to earth and has no issue explaining what he is doing and why. This is obviously subjective, but I felt he was far more honest than any other dentist I’d been to. This is how every dentistry practice should run – who needs to upsell when being honest brings in a bigger stream of patients? In summary, thank God I have insurance that allows me access to such a great dentist.

I still can’t say I like getting dental work done, but Yu is absolutely my first choice now.

Grace O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot be any happier and thankful that I finally found a dentist that I completely trust. I have been going to him for the past 3+ years and he always delivers above my expectations. The most remarkable experience is for the permanent fix of the two crowns that I had to get redone over and over again when I was as my previous dentist from TX. He explains the whole procedure so that you are left with no questions and also provides a very thorough examination when you go for your regular check-up and follow-up. It is hard to express how much I appreciate this man as all the great experiences are continuously being added incrementally (which is the reason why it took me so long to write a review when I want the world to have the same great care as I am getting). I will always go see Dr. Sean Yu as long as I can!

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


I’ve been coming to Dr. Yu for dental work for almost two years now.  Prior to my first visit I hadn’t been to a dentist in years so I have to admit I was a bit worried, however Dr. Yu’s professionalism and kindness put me at ease.  I initially came in for a tooth extraction and since then I’ve been back for checkups and cleanings and I always feel like my teeth are in good hands (now there’s a weird phrase). Dr. Yu is friendly and knowledgeable, and referred me to a great orthodontist when I decided to get braces.

His office is clean and his staff is also very friendly. I am confident in my 5 star rating of him, and I’m happy to find that other (internet users) feel the same way.  Would recommend.

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


I am a bit overdue on this review.
Dr. Yu is awesome.  Very personable with great Bed side manners.  Staff is great and very professional.  They don’t try to take advantage and play games to upsell maximize out of pocket costs for their patients like some offices that I have gone to.  He is a Family man with a beautiful family.  My 3 girls and wifey are all under his care.  Don’t mind going to see Dr. Yu because I know I will be under great care and helps to know that I won’t blow the bank seeing him.  =)  Actually have scheduled to see him this Wednesday about a chipped molar X0.

TinTin R. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu is the best! He does not push treatments that are unnecessary. He is very personable and very pleasant. He treats you so nicely that you will feel guilty not flossing your teeth every night (NO ONE EVER MADE ME DO THAT). The fact that he have some Saturdays open is also perfect for me.

During my cleaning (yes, he does my cleaning too!), he would let you know ahead of time what he would do, would explain what it does, and would constantly check on how I’m doing. How amazing is that?! I’ve been to hygienist who will keep going despite the fact that I’m choking on my own blood and saliva already (gross, I know).

The little extra i pay for a (my dental) insurance is definitely worth it. I highly recommend him!

Alex F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sean has been my dentist for 3 years.  He does outstanding work and runs a great practice.  
He’s professional, honest, and extremely knowledgeable.  I highly recommend Sean if you need a great dentist.

I highly recommend Dr Sean Yu for dentistry work. He’s professional and honest with a great staff. Appointments are ALWAYS on time never waiting around they definitely have their scheduling perfected.

Cheyne T. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu is the best dentist! He is extremely nice and as a perfectionist, will make sure you get the best results as possible for your teeth. I used to hate going to the dentist, but Dr. Yu always makes me feel comfortable and relaxed. He even sent me a card after I got my wisdom teeth out at Dr. Kim’s which was very thoughtful. The only thing is that this place gets really busy so make sure you make an appointment way in advance!

Hyunkue K. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have met Dr Yu only two times, but I can already tell he is exceptionally honest, professional and caring dentist. I’m very impressed and 100% satisfied with his treatment. He takes time to thoroughly explain all the options, and he doesn’t rush patient for unnecessary treatment. His treatment was very skilled and comfortable. I feel lucky to have finally found a dentist I can trust. Thank you Dr Yu!

Jeff M. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long overdue..I have been a patient of Dr. Yu for over 2 years now. I cannot say enough about him or his amazing staff. He’s knowledgeable, nice, caring, professional, and a GREAT dentist. I have referred many people to this office and they all have had the same things to say about Dr. Yu and his staff. On many occasions I have asked to be seen same day and although they are always busy, they have always tried their best to fit me in between patients so I can speak to the Doctor. I am glad that I found Dr. Yu and I highly recommend him to any one who’s looking for a great dentist who goes above and beyond to make sure you’re cared for.

Tiffany F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred by a good friend to Dr. Yu since my old dentist retired.     Dr. Yu is very kind and he rather helps me to save my tooth than selling
service as the other dentist that I went for consultation previously.  Dr. Yu even offered me for a free second check-up to make sure that my tooth condition is not getting worse.  All the staff are very friendly and professional especially the manager, Angela. When I first called the office for an initial appointment, I was advised that all the teeth cleaning appointments were booked for the remaining of the year.  Angela remembered to call me and helped me to book a teeth cleaning appointment as soon as there was a cancellation from another patient.  Thank you.

I love everything about this office! The staff is amazing from the front desk to the hygienists to the doctors. I have been seeing Dr. Yu for close to 10 years! He is the most gentle and honest dentist I’ve ever been to. Everyone that I have sent to him has loved him too! So thankful for this office!

Andrew K. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Top notch.  I can’t say enough about Dr Yu and his staff.  Greater dentist and a great experience.  

Going to the dentist isn’t generally something that people enjoy, but the folks at Dr Yu’s make it as comfortable as possible.

I tried him for the first time a couple months ago and immediately booked him for a follow up in 6 months.  Just note that his schedule gets booked quickly!

Phyllis M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu and staff are the best in the universe! Our family has been going to him for the last 4 or 5 years. He’s gentle, compassionate and skillful. I needed a lot of work recently. He did a superb job fixing my complicated dental issue and then  worked on making a bridge and 2 crowns. I just had it finished this morning. Everything about it is perfect. Even the color is an exact match to my adjacent teeth. His front office assistants are wonderful. Angela is an “angel”. It may be difficult to get an immediate appointment but the wait is definitely worth it!

Angeline K. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everytime I come here I’m reminded of what a stellar dental practice Dr. Yu has here. He is so kind and compassionate. And it’s not just him. His entire staff is friendly, knowledgeable and genuinely cares about every single patient that walks through their door. Going to the dentist isn’t normally anyone’s favorite thing to do in the world but everyone here actually makes it such a pleasant experience. They are the gold standard!

Joonhee L. from Nevada (Source: Yelp)


I left Irvine about 3 months ago, and one of the things my family misses the most is his dental practice. He is the best dentist I have ever met, and ofc I have recommended him to everyone I knew. He will try to preserve your teeth by all means. Irvine is lucky to have him.

Angela C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sean Yu is as good as they come!  Him and his entire staff are really professional, and he never pushes treatments that you don’t need.  He is very honest, upfront, and conservative… so basically, he will do what’s necessary to get you treated, but won’t get too crazy with his recommendations.  When we come for dental cleanings, we leave with a goody bag of toothbrushes and floss too.  

Because he is so popular and well-liked, it can be hard to get appointments, and I usually have to get scheduled out months in advance.  However, for emergencies… like one time I bit down too hard on a chicken bone and my tooth chipped, I was able to come in that very day and get the whole thing taken care of within the hour.  We really couldn’t be happier with Dr. Yu as our dentist – he is the best!

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


By far the best experience.  I took my son to see him after chipping his tooth years ago.  Dr. Yu did consultation and procedure on the same visit.  Did exceptional work.  After the procedure he said he didn’t feel a thing.  No pain or anything.  Went back to our general dentist for his crown and he was impressed with Dr. Yu’s work as well.  Great follow up and service.  Thank you!!

Dr Yu and his entire staff are AMAZING! Best dentist ever! I moved to Florida a couple years ago and always tell people I want to fly back to CA for my dentist appointments. I’m the biggest baby when it comes to the dentist, however, Dr Yu and his staff made me comfortable and relaxed. Dr Yu’s chair side manner is professional and funny – he really cares about his patients!

I tried going to several dentist in the area, and I am one of those who always complains about everything. But I just couldn’t find anything about Dr. Yu or his office to complain about. As a matter of fact, now my whole family is going to him. You just can’t find a better dentist in O.C.

Daniel Lalonde from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Easily the best dental experience I have ever had! Dr. Yu offers a polished modern clinic, high degree of technical knowledge, and a remarkably gentle touch. His staff have always been friendly and super efficient, leading me to recommend him to several of my colleagues.

Jeanne D. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu is the best dentist ever, he is kind, and humble and very funny too! He takes the time to explain every procedure in detail which I really appreciate.  I have never looked forward to going to a dentist appointment until the last 4 years when I found Dr. Yu. His staff is the most professional and friendly group of people which just adds to the entire experience. The down side is, he is in high demand for general exams etc., but I feel if I ever had an emergency, Dr Yu would work me in.

Jacqulyne G. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely love this dentist! Always very friendly and professional. Great cleaning by the hygienist and that make you feel very comfortable.

Nedra C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu & his entire office are nothing but amazing! I had a rough time finding a nice dentist when I first moved to the area, but WOW am I glad I found them. The staff are so friendly and attentive, and I met and had a great conversation with Dr. Yu himself when I first visited their office. They are flexible in their hours & work with you to help schedule your appointments. I would definitely recommend Dr. Yu & his office for anyone looking to find a TOP NOTCH dentist 🙂

Jenn R. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

So nice, pain free, my whole family only goes to Dr. Yu!

Kevin F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sean is the best dentist I’ve ever had. He is truly outstanding! I found Sean on (the internet) a few years ago and decided to give him a try. Another dentist recommended hundreds of dollars worth of work, and I wanted a second opinion. Sean confirmed I really didn’t need much done at all, and suggested flossing to get rid of a cavity that was forming. He said he could fill it, but it would probably save me some money and remedy the issue if I simply flossed better. He even did a very small filling for me and wouldn’t let me pay him. Who does that these days!? I’ve recommended him several times and every single person who’s seen him has told me they couldn’t be happier. If you need a very knowledgeable, honest, and professional dentist, Sean’s your guy.

Blanca F. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu has been in our family for quiet sometime and the main reason we are still with him is because of his patience, good character, we all trust his judgement, great work with every member of my family.  The environment and everyone at the office is pleasant!

Hwa Eurie S. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu and his team are great! Everyone was very helpful and knowledgeable. Thank you for your professionalism and care!

Summer K. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


Such an amazing doctor and his staff is awesome. It’s nice to be remembered and taken care of. This review is long over due. I’ve been going to Dr. Yu for some time now, or what feels like it. Only because the team makes me feel so welcome. And Dr Yu is very good at explaining to me, in my language, what’s going on with my mouth. Thank you staff for doing such an amazing job!!

Rami E. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu is simply fantastic although dentists are my all-time least favorite people!!! He filled 2 teeth and installed a crown for me several months ago, and his work was great. He was also friendly and courteous and so were his staff and assistants.

Also, his charges were fair and he didn’t suggest or recommend any unnecessary filing or procedures, as most dentists are infamous for!!!  Although I would never look forward to my next cleaning and exam, or filling, he is now officially my dentist 🙂

Danielle T. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sean Yu is the most HONEST dr. I have ever met in the OC.
He will never lie or try to rush you into treatment you doesn’t need. All of the team are very nice and helpful.
Everything is Sooo clean and well maintained.
I visiting at Dr. Sean Yu every 6 months for cleaning and check up and they never told me to have any treatments or try to sell any kind of products.
I love Dr. Sean Yu office. Thank you so much for everything!

You will not find a better dentist anywhere. He cares and is reasonably priced. Dr. Yu also happens to be exceptionally skilled. I have experience with quite a few dentists, good and not-so-good, and Dr. Yu is the best. Hands down (…)

Sara K. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist ever!! I really cannot do justice in writing a review, one really needs to experience for themselves. Not only extremely knowledgeable but also just as sincere in his care and compassion for patients. He really goes the extra mile to make sure a patient is taken care of and happy. I really felt like Family in his clinic, all the staff are very welcoming and friendly as well. I went in for an emergency crown replacement for my front teeth and couldn’t be happier. I had a very complex case and an infection and Dr. Yu was extremely gentle and thorough in ensuring I had just the right treatment, the right foundation built, and the prefect crown produced to restore a beautiful smile. Really boosted my confidence and I love to smile and see it. If you’re looking for an expert dentist who is just as trustworthy and compassionate as he is knowledgeable, and you want beautiful healthy teeth, go see Dr. Yu!

Si B. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yu and his staffs always provides excellent service and exceptional dental work. Been going here 3 years in a roll.  And I always look forward to coming back.
