My experience with Dr. Taylor was amazing! This is coming from the most difficult patient for dentistry. Dr. Taylor has been the only dentist to be able to get any work done to me while awake in the last twenty years. She is patient, kind , understanding, has a great heart, and takes her time with you so that you feel calm enough to proceed. I can never thank her enough for what she has been able to do. Dr . Taylor is the only person I will be going to from now on! Thank you!

Dr. Taylor is amazing.  I was missing several teeth, and therefore suffered from low self-esteem, never smiling, and avoiding social functions whenever possible.  Dr. Taylor changed that.  She not only took the time to keep me updated on my progress, but she took the time to check in on me after the work was done.  She gave me the ability to smile again, which is life-changing.  I can’t say enough good things about her.  I would absolutely recommend her for your dental needs.  You will be very happy with her work!

Dr. Taylor is the BEST dentist ever! ( and I have been to many before I found her!)
She goes above and beyond to make sure that you are comfortable. If you are experiencing any anxiety, she will take the time to help you through it, or will find another way to do the work that doesn’t cause you distress. Also her work is beautiful and flawless.

I highly recommend that you call Lauren ( who is just as kind and helpful as Dr. Taylor) to make an appointment! You will not be disappointed!

I never mind going to the dentist now! Everyone in the office is kind and accommodating. Dr. Taylor takes time with each patient and always makes sure you are comfortable. She will forever be my dentist. My 16 year old daughter just said the other day she likes going to the dentist because the staff is so nice and Dr. Taylor is the best- this means a lot coming from Someone who is 16!
I recommend Dr. Susan Taylor whenever someone is looking for a GREAT dentist! She is extremely knowledgeable, friendly, funny and cares for her patients.
Lauren, the office manager is awesome too!!

Daniel J. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely first class. (…)Dr. Taylor and her team went out of their way to correct the work done by others. They even retook certain scans at no cost just to make sure I was fully cared for.
I then had 3 cavity treatments and the team were awesome. So patient, caring and skilled. They took their time and a 2 hour treatment including cleaning felt like literally 10 mins as they did everything to make me comfortable including playing my favorite music!! 🙂
I really consider these guys the best in the business and will be referring everyone I know there from now on.
Thanks a million!

Richard M. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I cannot express enough appreciation for the professional, personable (and patient!) welcome to this practice. Lauren, the fantastic Office Manager, treated me as if I were a priority long-time patient in regard to quick scheduling, Insurance, etc. – I was a convert before even meeting the Amazing (and equally patient) Dr. Susan!

Slightly overwhelmed by the thoroughness applied to my situation, which, although very important to myself from an aesthetic standpoint, surely doesn’t rank with the more elevated applications of Dr. Susan’s Cosmetic talents / Restorative expertise. Impatient to get back in the chair and finish getting improved; yes, I’m actually looking forward to going to the Dentist!!(…)

Eric C. from Carpinteria, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taylor is without question the best dentist I’ve ever had treat me. Not only is she an amazing dentist, but she and her staff are not only incredibly professional but genuinely nice and very caring people. Although I recently moved away from Newport Beach, I have every intention of continuing to make the trip back for cleanings and treatments. If you’re someone who dreads visiting your current dentist (as I was), I would strongly encourage you to schedule you’re next appointment with Dr. Taylor. She and her staff will likely change your thinking.

Dr. Taylor is so warm, friendly and professional. She reviews all options with her patients and it’s very apparent she truly cares about her patients and the results she provides. I highly recommend her.

Kayla W.  from Corona del Mar, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I came to Dr. taylor to have 6 veneers put on, and the whole process went amazingly smooth. But what is really special about this place is that I have never been treated with such care and detailed precision. They spent over seven hours on what should have been a relatively short appointment perfecting every minuscule part of my veneers since I am so anal about perfection and kept wanting tiny changes. They worked well into the night but what’s truly amazing is that they never lost patience. They spent over 7 hours late at night adhering to my every wish and remained the incredibly kind and funny women they were throughout the whole process. I cannot recommend them enough(…).

Jessica L. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr. Taylor is honest and will not push any procedures on you.  I could tell she loves what she does and is very knowledgeable.  The office is new and has state of the art equipment.  Usually, new equipment equals higher prices, but my bill was surprisingly low.  Dr. Taylor and her assistants made sure throughout the whole process that I was comfortable and not in pain.  She was also very accommodating of my schedule and took extra care to make sure my crown matched my natural teeth color.  

Thank you Dr. Taylor, Lauren and staff!  You guys are simply the best.

Serene N. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taylor’s office is truly the best dental office I have ever been to. I came to this office after dealing with complications from an oral procedure that was improperly done by another dentist. Dr. Taylor took the time to explain exactly what was wrong, what could’ve caused it, and how to fix it.
Also, every other office I went to made me feel like I  was being hustled. Not here..Lauren went above and beyond dealing with my insurance company and got me a (great price).
I’ve been to A LOT of dentists and the level of service and caring here is unparalleled. I look forward to being a life long patient.

Katherine Everett (Source: Google)


I started seeing Dr. Taylor 4 years ago when my tooth cracked in half! It was the worst… I had put off seeing a dentist for almost 7 years. I had such bad experiences.

Dr. Taylor & Lauren (her assistant – she’s also awesome) immediately took me in and helped me get it all fixed up. She is very gentle, extra careful, and LOVES what she does. I didn’t have to get a root canal because Dr. Taylor was so careful that my cavity was just to the brink of hitting the root, but through her careful work she was able to get rid of the bad without making me get a root canal.

I now live in (a different city) and fly home to Orange County just to see her. I will never have another dentist again! No matter where I live!

Chris T. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Professional, classy and job well done! My experience with Dr. Taylor was nothing less than superb. From the quality of work done to the bedside manner, my experience exceeded  my expectations. After a series of appointments and the great work that I received, I am most certain this will be my dentist for the long run. I’m comfortable to bring my wife and children to an office that operates on this type of level of professionalism. The team as a whole are great and I could not have been made to feel more comfortable while I was there. Looking forward to my next appointment…never thought that I’d say that;)

This is not your everyday Dental office. Dr Taylor and her office manager Lauren care more about you as a patient than any dental office I have ever experienced. They understand when you need help and are always there with care and compassion above and beyond the call of duty. My son had a dental emergency and he wasn’t even their patient but they knew me and took amazing care of him. Dr Taylor works miracles like an artist on a canvas. You will not be disappointed.

Nicholas Martin H. from New Orleans, LA (Source: Yelp)


I am so glad to have found this dentistry!!  Susan and Lauren are so professional, empathetic, courteous, conscientious, and all around warm people. There should be more professionals like them ! The office is so beautiful you could mistake it for a spa lobby when entering.  As a matter of fact, I’m going in for ANOTHER visit to have an examination, cleaning, and fillings. I don’t live anywhere near the office, but Taylor Cosmetic and General Dentistry is certainly worth the commute and I will recommend it to all who will listen.

Laurie T. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr Taylor is the only one I’ll trust anywhere near my teeth from now on!
She and Lauren at the desk both make you feel so welcome and cared for! Dr Taylor is beyond gentle, and kind! She understands dental anxiety and goes out of her way to find solutions and get you through it!!
I highly recommend her!!!!

After several years of putting off a visit to the dentist, I scheduled an appt with Dr. Taylor. The first visit was just a consultation. What I got out of that was some great info for choosing an insurance company and a list of upcoming treatments. Dr. Taylor broke everything down and explained what was going on in a way which was very easy to understand what, when, why, and how. And gave me some options too.

First appointment down and about a half a dozen on the horizon. Another thing down is my anxiety level for the next visits because this dentist and her staff make you feel as comfortable as possible.

I’ve been seeing Dr. Taylor since last July when I saw her on an emergency basis for a tooth that had been hurting for a while. I tried all sorts of home remedies but nothing worked and my infection started moving down into my jaw! I told a friend how much pain I was in and she recommended Dr. Taylor to me who ended up seeing me late on a Friday night. It turned out that the infection was so bad she had to pull it- right then and there! She didn’t send me away with a prescription- she took care of me and I am grateful. I’ve been seeing her ever since for cleanings and fillings. She is friendly, compassionate, and highly knowledgeable. I truly recommend her to anyone and everyone.

Elizabeth G. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I went 6 years without seeing a dentist prior to showing up at Dr. Taylor’s last year. I walked into her office with an abscessed tooth and recessed gums. I had been picking at the abscess to get it out of my mouth; if only it were that easy to do my own root canal. To no avail; I needed to see a professional and who better than Dr. Taylor? No one is better than Dr. Taylor. The team at Dr. Taylor’s worked diligently to get me the right care and the right time.  I was nervous, I was told to see a oral Surgeon who did have to extract the tooth due to the damage, but guess who has a healthier, happier smile now? Me!
Together, we have worked out a schedule to ensure the health of all of my teeth and gums are in tact so I can live a longer happier life. I know what to expect when I arrive, I look forward to sitting in that chair with the cozy blanket, listening to the music of my choice and knowing when I leave; I’ll look and feel better than when I arrived. After all it all starts with great oral hygiene, regular Check-ups and cleanings, right?!
Remember how I said I have a fear of dentist followed by a laundry list of self-centered fears? The fear of pain, embarrassment, and loss of control is manageable because I am communicated to and feel part of the decision making.
I recommend Taylor Cosmetic Dentistry to all of my family and friends!

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


I have terrible dental anxiety and from the moment I called and made my first appointment I knew this would be my dentist.  Dr. Taylor and everyone on her staff are genuine and caring. She has a conservative approach and gave me a plan for only what I needed done. Other dentists try to redo your entire mouth when you only need one procedure. They have sedation if needed and the office is clean and comfortable. I’m so happy I finally found my forever dentist!

Jennifer Brennan (Source: Google)


Dr. Taylor and her staff calmed my nerves and made me feel very comfortable. Everyone who works there is friendly and processional.

Dan B. from Laguna Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taylor rocks!!  I loved the ambiance of her office and the quality of the work.  I was a new patient and she got me in quickly for a cleaning, bonding (for chipped tooth) and whitening treatment.  The whole experience was excellent down to the comfort of the chair.  (Seriously, it’s the most comfortable dentist chair you could imagine).  I got treated like first class from start to finish, and her prices were very very reasonable.  Thank you EVERYONE at Dr. Taylor’s office.  :  )

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


(…)Dr. Taylor was super nice and friendly and really listened about what the other dentist told me and my concerns. After X-rays, Dr. Taylor really took the time to show me (on the X-rays and with a mirror in my mouth) what was going on(…). She took care of only what was truly needed (a few fillings and 1 old crown replaced). She did such amazing work that the fillings and the crown look exactly like my real teeth!

I totally trust Dr. Taylor – she’s a perfectionist and she only does what is necessary.

Shean S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taylor is the absolute “Best”!! She’s a wizard, my teeth are amazing, they look like they did when I was a teenager. “Brand New”

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


(…)Dr. Susan Taylor was recommended to me by a fellow agent and her office had me at “hello”.    That “hello” was from Lauren , Dr. Taylor’s office manager extraordinaire.  Love the Lauren and her smile.
Dr. Tylor even worked her “magic” with my new Veneers to straighten out my bottom teeth.   Now I can SMILE WITH MY WHOLE FACE!!
Dr. Taylor –  Professional, caring,  witty, concerned, did I say caring warm atmosphere(…).

Andrew L. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Taylor is a very gentle and friendly dentist. She is also flexible with her scheduling and has a great staff! I had to come here after an unfortunate event at a local Starbucks in which I chewed on some nut in a biscotti, chipped my filling off.

Dr Taylor was very accommodating and informed me on what was going on. She was very patient with my questions and I really appreciate the fact that I don’t have to wait when I get to my appointment on time. Dr Taylor has also been very accommodating with my schedule – which is great(…).

Jordan Davis (Source: Google)


Dr. Taylor and Lauren are the best! Lauren is so sweet and she goes above and beyond to help you in anyway she can. Dr. Taylor makes the dentist a positive place. I’m usually laughing while I’m there. I recommend them to everyone that I know. I will keep being a patient at Taylor Cosmetics and general dentistry.

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


(…)Dr. Taylor and her assistant Lauren were extremely friendly and informative. They were very straight forward and didn’t try to sell me something I didn’t need. For the first time in my life, it was a pleasurable experience to go to the dentist. I highly recommend them if you’re looking for a dentist in the Newport Beach area.

Nancy R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had broken two teeth surfing and wanted to see if I could save them.(…).

Dr. Taylor was extremely gentle and very careful with the
needle that would numb my lower gums.  She was a perfectionist.  She was able to save both teeth, one with a filler and the other with a crown.  She went to great lengths to make sure I was comfortable and pain free.  I honestly have never been to a better dentist in my life.  The nicest, most thorough and quality work.  I’m not kidding.
These folks are real real good at what they do.

BeVier-Yurkovich Danielle (Source: Facebook)


Dr Taylor and her staff are the best dentists around! (…)they sure exceeded my expectations. Dr Taylor has wonderful technique and bed side matter. She is knowledgeable and makes the experience completely doable. I actually enjoy coming to the dentist!

K. B. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing dental practice well run by great people.
Dr. Taylor is a pleasant, honest and a skilled dentist.  Her staff is kind and well-trained.  Location is convenient by Fashion Island.  Office has a terrific ambiance with modern equipment plus your choice of music while in the chair.
They do the right thing always and do it with class, compassion and kindness.
Highly recommend Taylor Cosmetic & General Dentistry for anyone seeking a new dentist.

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


Impeccable. Professional. Convenient.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Taylor’s for over two years and I have been thrilled with the level of expertise, care and humor in her practice.  I initially came to her in the early stages of pregnancy and she was able to treat my cavities using very little anesthesia due to her experience and sensitivity to prenatal care.

Dr. Taylor provides the highest standards of professionalism with a customer-focused flexibility I truly appreciate.  Thank you!
