Check out what some happy patients are saying about us:

I’m so happy I found this place! From the moment I walked in I felt like I was with friends and well taken care of. The front office staff, x-ray technician, dental hygienist, Evie, and Dr. Dugas are all amazing! I’m not a fan of x-rays but I was really impressed with the x-ray technician’s kindness and patience. She made it bearable! Their technology is state of the art and it was cool to see the digital x-rays of my teeth. I came in for a consultation but they were able to also squeeze me in for a cleaning. I also liked how Evie explained everything in detail to me. Lexie at the front office double confirmed my insurance coverage and clearly explained costs and coverage. Finally, Dr. Dugas was very kind and also explained everything to me in great detail and discussed my options. He is trustworthy and very professional and I will be coming back to this office for several procedures including bonding, replacing old fillings and new fillings and may consider teeth whitening in the future.

(…) Found ‘new’ dental team at South Coast Metro Dental very impressive: Office manager explained everything clearly regarding potential costs, following an enlightening first session with Dentist, who projected x-ray images of all teeth, and explained the entire condition of every tooth, including gums. Learned more about my dental condition and dental history than ever knew, or imagined- thorough education in a brief span of the dentist’s professional time. The hygienist went over my first office-visit, ‘dental questionnaire’ with a fine-tooth comb and together, with the dental assistant and the dentist, they caught areas that needed to be addressed: ie., need to take antibiotics prior to dental treatment ( I had rheumatic fever as a child, and they checked to see if I needed a new antibiotic Rx to be ready for next scheduled dental treatment; they also noted that I take Actonel Rx -to ward off osteoporosis-they alerted me that this category of Rx has a side effect (could cause damage to bones in the mouth such that one needs to be ‘on the lookout’ for any signs of mouth bones problem.) I feel secure and more aware than ever, in the care of South Coast Metro Center for Dentistry & Implants (…).

(…) I couldn’t be happier with my decision. The staff are attentive, caring, friendly, and go over and beyond in following up with their recommendations and services. I ask question after question and they not only patiently answer me, they address me by name and make me feel like I’m a person that matters. Thank you, South Coast Metro Dentistry & Implants 🙂

I’ve been coming to this office for about a year now and I have to say Dr. Dugas had his staff are truly terrific. Their office is always clean and has accommodating hours during the week for people like me who rather be seen after 5 pm. Thank you South Coast Metro Dentistry & Implants!

(…) It all starts with a smile. I want to believe that we all long for the perfect smile. That is what Dr. Dugas and his staff have given me. The gift of beauty comes in so many forms, at the end what is true is how one feels. If we can greet the world with a smile then the rest is achievable. Thank you Dr. Dugas and to Everyone on your staff for the gift of a perfect smile.

South Coast Metro Dentist is hands down the best place to go for any dental work in the Orange County area. Dr. Dugas is extremely professional as well as Anton, and they both make sure the patient feels comfortable and relaxed. Sherri was incredibly nice and amazing with setting up my finance plan, and even called to remind me of my appointments. The office is new and everything is clean so there’s nothing but positive things to say about my experience at South Coast Metro!

I’m very impressed with the treatment I’m getting. Dr. Michael is very knowledgeable, explaining everything into detail before treatment and gentle. Not that much pain when he works in your mouth. Good place to go.

I’ve been seeing Michael Dugas for several years so it was a no-brainer to travel to his new office at South Coast Metro Center.  Dr. Dugas went above and beyond what I expected when I recently needed to “catch up” on some work I had been putting off for too long.  Not only did he repair my teeth, he actually worked to improve my bite while making me proud to smile again.  He’s the best!  Thanks Dr. Dugas!

So Happy to find the dental office of my dreams. Everyone treated me like a VIP, from the front office, to assistants to my dentist Dr. Dugas. The whole experience was 5 stars and the dentistry was an involved bridge replacement of three teeth. Thank you all at South Coast Metro Center for Dentistry and Implants for making me feel part of your family!

(…) I was getting my teeth cleaned, the hygienist was thorough, and made nonjudgmental recommendations on how I could further improve my oral hygiene. As I got my fillings, the doctor was super gentle and attentive, while remaining professional and narrating his actions to keep me updated on what’s going on. They also send many reminders about appointments, which is just perfect for forgetful people like me. I have already recommended this dental office to my sister, and she is very satisfied with it so far as well. All in all, I found my experience with this dental office very pleasant, though normally I just hate going to dentists.

Happy to have found such a great sentist so randomly picking from an insurance providers list. Dr. Dugas and everyone else there are friendly and helpful. If you live in the area and can’t decide on a dentist, here is your place.

Melissa M. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dugas took on the task of fixing shoddy and damaging dental work I had done in the past.  I needed time-consuming work done and Dr. Dugas was very patient, gracious and provided excellent care and dental work. His gentle demeanor and calming nature puts you at ease immediately and minimizes any stress you may have. There is no doubt at all that the work I received is professional and exactly as it should be. Perfect. I am finally at a place with my dental care that I feel good about it and I will only return to Dr. Dugas for any dental needs. He gave me hope and made it happen. His staff is so nice, welcoming and professional and will work with you to accommodate your schedule. It just doesn’t get any better than this.

Honestly, I’ve been amazed at this place the two time I’ve been here. They were able to work with me to get my checkup and get my wisdom teeth removed in a very short time. Their dental office has really broadened my view on what a modern dentistry office should be and I would recommend anyone to go here. Dr. Dugas himself has been super informative on both visits.

H. C. from Signal Hill, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love going here as much as someone can love going to the dentist. Everyone is professional and honest. They answered all my questions and were fast. They were so sweet with my 2-year-old daughter who had her first exam here. Thanks, guys!

One of the best dental experiences I’ve ever had! The staff is professional, extremely knowledgeable and friendly. They have a variety of tools at their disposal to keep you updated. I was happy with the text service they offered that dealt with any inquiry if you had any.

Dr. Dugas is hands down the best there is. His professionalism and attention to detail is worth the drive from Long Beach. Thanks, Dr. Michael Dugas!

Great family dentist, excellent staff, they’re amazing. Always hard finding a great dentist, but definitely this is the place. Always leave with a smile on my face.

Fastest dental experience ever – everyone was super friendly and responsive. They recommended a bunch of services to me without being pushy, and explained the benefits for each of them very clearly. Would recommend!

Griffin A. from Costa Mesa, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very professional and caring staff! I have had awful experiences with the way dentist offices have practiced in the past and South Coast Metro Center for Dentistry and Implants exceeded all expectations. I recently had my wisdom teeth removed from this location and the procedure went perfectly. They had constant communication with me to follow up after my procedure to make sure I was recovering well. I am so grateful for how they have treated me from the moment I walk in all the way through to when I leave. I absolutely recommend them!!!

Fred E. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was treated with great hospitality at South Coast Metro. Dr Dugas was very informative and trustworthy. The staff was also very pleasant and helpful. I would highly recommend South Coast Center for Dentistry for all of your dental needs,

I love to go to my dentist at South Coast Metro Dentistry & Implants. They treat me like family. The front office with Lexus is always so warm and welcoming. The hygienist, Even, is professional, caring, and efficient. I won’t have my teeth cleaned by anyone else. 5 Star office all the way around.

Nezar A. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


The entire staff have been extremely helpful and clear in explaining everything they are doing. They also take the time to explain everything shown on the X-rays, to help prevent further issues. The staff is helpful, friendly and direct with everything, good or bad. Place is really clean and they play good music to help get your mind off things while working on your teeth. Definitely recommended!

Melissa S. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) The first appointment went well. Dr. Dugas took his time to listen to my past history, and was reasonable with his recommendations. I appreciated that. Not trying to oversell anything. He has your best interest at heart. Subsequent visits were just as friendly. Lexis is very personable and treats you like a person, not a patient.  I referred to my family. They call and check up on you afterward and really care. Good followup. Thank you!!!
