Dr Santos and her team are nice, efficient and just great. The office provides little treats and snacks, there is never a too long wait. My son was 2 when he first went and they really worked well with him and explained everything and even tried it on his hand before his mouth.
Office is clean and there is always parking.

I moved and needed a new dentist. Every staff member was very professional but also friendly from the front desk staff, to the hygienist and dentist. The hygienist had a gentle touch which is hard to find! Even when just doing a cleaning, most hygienists I’ve had leave my gums bleeding. Not here. Nice, clean place.

I have been going to Doctor Santos’ office for about a year now and I have nothing bad to say!!! When I first came in to this office, I had not been to the dentist in YEARS! I was so afraid because of previous bad experiences in other places, and I was also afraid I wouldn’t be able to afford getting treatment done because my insurance covered so little; but I am soooo glad that I took my chances and called to make an appointment. From the moment I stepped into the office, her staff was so friendly and accommodating. They made me feel so welcomed and did not make me feel bad for having taken so long to go back to be seen by a dentist! Ha! The wait to be seen is never long, I have gotten so much work done this past year: deep cleaning, wisdom teeth extractions, to the most current project being my adult braces; but through all those treatments and visits I have never felt any pain or discomfort! They are so good about setting up either a Carecredit account and in house dental plans that as a college student, I don’t have to stress about paying for everything upfront. If you are searching for a new dentist, I would HIGHLY recommend Dr. Santos and her great staff! 🙂

I’m so glad I found Dr. Shirley Santos! I was greeted by office staff with a smile and they were very helpful in answering any questions I had. Dr. Santos made me feel at ease and continuously checked on me during my procedure to make sure I was comfortable. The office was very clean and all of her equipment looked state of the art! I don’t think that you will find any other dental office as wonderful as this one!

K. N. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Santos and her staff are amazing! I had a broken tooth, and she worked me in that same day! I was a new patient, and when I walked through the door I was immediately put at ease. I don’t think I have ever been to a dentist that is more caring. She was so thorough, and explained the needed procedure in detail. I knew exactly what to expect. Not only is her office extremely professional, and her dental work impeccable, but the entire staff is fun! It’s a happy office! There are not many dentist offices you can say that about! I highly recommend Dr. Santos.

I think I’m not different than most people and HATE finding a new dentist.  My old dentist moved to Oregon and I had no choice.  I went to Dr. Santos today and her office is beautiful, new and totally clean inside.  They are friendly and even though I need some work done, I did not think their estimate was over the top.  I think her prices are reasonable and I would recommend this dentist highly.

I was looking for a new dentist close to where I moved to. In the ValuePak from the mail I found a Coupon for Dr. Santos. I made a phone appt. and as soon as i walked through the door I could feel the friendly atmosphere. The usual fear of dentist was gone. I personally like the sense of humor the staff have and the hands on work that Dr. Santos does. I just had a regular cleaning and she did the work herself. Not a hand-me-over to someone else bit. Yes, I very much recommend this dentist.

Changed my dentist because of her. Very professional. Staff are friendly and knowledgeable.  Keeps you at ease. Very thorough, detailed oriented and informative about procedures you need to have it done. Explains to you what procedure your insurance that doesn’t cover. Here is my story,  I am a new client here. I dumped my previous dentist for more than 10 or 15 years because of how they treated me. Don’t get me wrong my previous dentist was great and all…office was all up to date, its just I wasnt given enough information that I need for my procedure to have it done. I had a root canal that “was old and infected.” My previous dentist told me that I need to hve my root canal extracted and have an implant done…and its expensive $$$$ to have it done. I will refer you out to see a specialist… That was the only explanation I got. I just disregard it for my tooth was not bothering me. Came to Dr Santos because my wisdom teeth were bothering me. Referred by the CEO where I work. My plan, was to have my wisdom teeth to be just extracted and thats it. Here, at Dr. Santos office, they told me same problem about my infected tooth where the root canal was and the procedure that I need. She told me and her assistant Maria the few options I have, to have this procedure taken care of. Yes! It is expensive. They provided me few options to pay through payment plan or  Care Credit. My insurance paid for all the extractions with a small difference i hve to pay out of pocket. Never heard of Care Credit…they explained it to me in details. Tooth implants are considered cosmetic surgery. Dr.Santos also told me “the one who will do the procedure, will be Dr. Aguila and he comes to my office even though he has his own clinic.” A+++ there. Once, all payment arrangements are taking care of…booked me to see Dr. Aguila in immediately. Dr. Santos did my yearly cleaning first prescribed antibiotics and pain meds until I see Dr. Aguila.  Dr. Aguila is amazing. I didnt feel any pain when he injected the lidocaine. I was awake in my procedure from extractions to the placement of my implant.. (Oh yeah,  I had all my wisdom teeth removed the same day as well). Lots of pressure but pain free. He has very light hands. Very professional.  Awesome Dentist. To make the long story short, I had the procedure done. Extractions done, bone graft done (due to bone loss), and implant done… and now I am just waiting for my crown to be in placed by Dr. Aguila. This is five star indeed in my book. You will not regret it.
