Fantastic Dentist. Dr. Lee and staff are absolutely the best. Friendly, professional and caring. Dr. Lee has all the latest and greatest technology. Made my crown in the office while I waited – no need for a second trip & his price was super reasonable. Digital x-rays to reduce exposure to radiation, laser for fillings. They have never suggested services or procedures I didn’t need. The office is convenient and has a nice vibe. My wife and kids were so impressed that they left the dentist they had been seeing for 20 years to become Dr. Lee’s patients.

Laura M. from Foothill Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Le and his staff are fabulous. My husband and I have been going to Dr. Le for many years and could not be happier. He is very thorough and concerned that his patients get the best care possible. He has state of the art equipment and loves to be current on the cutting edge technology. Dr. Le is forthcoming about concerns but will let you know when dental issues can wait. The staff are very mindful of insurance and really try to work with you to get the maximum benefit allowed. I would highly recommend giving  Simple Tooth a try.

Dr Le cares about the work, not only that it is done right but it is done as perfectly and as expeditiously as possible. He reminds of an old craftsman who polishes a part that nobody will ever see just because he knows it’s there and it too needs to be done as well as possible. His dental practice is all digital in the best sense, which lets him dispense with impressions and molds in favor of a high tech optical scanner and in house CNC fabrication of one piece crowns while you wait. One gets the impression that he is not in it for the money but he sees it as a calling. He has cable in every room which is nice but the screen is in the wrong place so it is not visible as soon as he reclines the chair into the working position.

Dr. Le has been the best dentist for my entire family. My daughter has anxiety about everything, and Dr. Le and his staff have taken her through appointments with patience and empathy, even hand-holding when needed. Dr. Le’s hygienist Gina is a gem. Everyone in the office benefits from Dr. Le’s leadership, as everyone pays close attention to details and is very caring and professional. Tina, who manages the scheduling, has always been flexible and accommodating with my appointments and the staff is consistently ready for me at my scheduled time. My appointment today went like they always do – friendly staff, professional service, inviting atmosphere and top tier dentistry. Thank you, Dr. Le!

Beautiful modern office with decent prices! Dr. Le & his staff are the most humble and personable I’ve ever met! Dr. Le is a great person let alone dentist, he personally takes care of you. I had a procedure done and Dr. Le followed up twice, which other dentist calls you to make sure your doing well? He takes the time to listen to your needs and tells your straight forwardly if your a candidate or not, does not try to sell you something knowing the outcome will not be positive. I felt very confident and comfortable being around him and his staff. Without hesitation, I recommend the simple tooth! You’ll be glad you chose Dr. Le as your dentist, he won’t disappoint!

Samantha A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot recommend Dr. Le enough. I had an accident over the weekend and chipped my two front teeth. I was devastated and was looking to find someone who could fix it and fast. We found Dr. Le through a Lake Forest message board and he did not disappoint.

I reached out on his personal line and he got me in for first thing Monday morning, even though the office was completely closed. The entire procedure took only an hour and a half and it was the least invasive dentist appointment I have ever had. The laser technology he uses eased my anxiety and Dr. Le was willing to answer any and all questions I had.

The office itself was also beautiful, clean and high tech. I am so happy with Dr. Le’s work, no one knows that my two front teeth have caps and they look identical to what they looked like prior to the accident. I will definitely be seeing Dr. Le regularly moving forward for all my dental needs.

Dr. Le is like an artist of teeth repair— his work is very high quality. He is also a very nice person, as are his staff. We are very happy a friend recommended him 2 years ago. I highly recommend Dr Le to anyone in need of a dentist.

Carol G. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Let me tell you that from the moment I walked in the door it was friendly and professional front office.
Gina my dental hygienist was more than thorough and I knew I had found a great office. After she was done I met Dr Vu Le. Very professional also and direct.  He asked what my expectations were as far as my dentistry.  No pressure to bring forward anything I wasn’t interested in.  He did a thorough exam also.
I was so happy I made my 6 month appointment!

Michelle D. from Foothill Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Le was referred to me by a local oral surgeon after some really awful experiences with other dentists! I have never looked back.
He is incredibly honest, thorough and conservative, which I love! He has a very welcoming practice – his staff are friendly and highly trained and attentive to detail.
This is as good as it gets!

Lee P. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)Dr. Le and his staff are Always very honest. Gentle. And very caring(…). Do yourself a favor and stop searching and just make an apt to go see Dr. Le and his team! They’ll treat You right. Trust.  I’ve referred my family and boss so far and they’ve been super happy as well.

Roger Y. from Aliso Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr Le for a few years now and am quite satisfied with the service I get there.  My daughter actually recommended him and we switched as my wife was not happy with our previous dentist.  The whole office provides professional, friendly, and excellent service.  Dr Le and staff stays current with the latest innovations in dental care and provides text reminders for appointments.  Overall, I would highly recommend The Simple Tooth to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Dr. Le and his staff are incredible! I just had a crown put in. There was absolutely no pain, the permanent crown was created while I waited, and in just over an hour, I was all done – no need for a temporary crown and an additional visit. The cost was incredibly reasonable as well. I have already shared my experience with family and several of my co-workers. I would encourage anyone to trust Dr. Le with their dental care.
I’d also like to thank Tina… she is so helpful and is a pleasure to work with!

Megan B. from Gibbon, NE (Source: Yelp)


The best experience at the dentist I’ve ever had!  Being new to the state, it can always be a pain trying to find a new dentist.  Not this time.  Everyone was so kind, I received great care and it was a pleasant experience!  Highly Recommended!

Emma W. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I drive 45 mins to see Dr Le and I’ve been a patient of his for over 6 years. (…)he is progressive in his adoption of new technologies while maintaining a conservative approach to treatment. His practice staff is competent and caring. Highly recommend!!

Lisa Jill Chambers (Source: Facebook)


For my family of six, Dr. Le and his staff provide unparalleled dental care and experiences. You won’t regret going to theSimpleTooth. I am thankful and relieved to have someone so skilled caring for our teeth.

Kari L. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Le for about 6 years now. I’ve recommended him to my husband and friends and everyone loves him. He’s very competent, keeps current with the new technology and doesn’t try to talk you into getting more work than you need

Amber B. from Clearwater, FL (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist that I have ever been to and even though I moved from my job that was near his office, I still make the drive to return there for my cleanings every six months. The office staff is very friendly and Dr. Le is nice and gentle. I never have to wait long and they do have Saturday hours once a month. The office is very clean and high tech- I even got to watch the playoff game this last Saturday while getting a cavity filled. He also shows you your x-rays on the monitor that is attached the the chair so that you can see what they see.
(…)Overall, he is a great dentist and I would recommend him to anyone that is in Orange County. He is well worth the drive and makes going to the dentist an enjoyable experience! Thanks Dr. Le!

It’s been a long time since I had a filling. With the laser technology Dr. Le is using, I thought it was really nice not to need local anesthetic, mouth dam, drilling, so, special thanks for offering and using this new technology. As a more general statement, the staff is awesome; I actually look forward to my visits and I have been a routine patient for the last 5 years. I didn’t plan to have a filling yesterday. Dr. Le had the time during lunch to do it, and asked if I wanted to have it done same visit. I appreciate the fact that I didn’t have to schedule another appointment to have the filling. Maybe not important to many people, but I am big on service, and I regarded the offer to have my filling done at the same time as my cleaning as being particularly service sensitive, as it’s always a challenge for me to take time off for appointments. Thanks!!

I am a typical male who avoids the dentist like the plague. When my filling cracked and I was experiencing some pain, I was forced (by my wife..haha) to call a dentist and get some help. My friends referred me to Dr. Vu Le and I’m glad they did because Dr. Le and his staff were so kind and compassionate. They squeezed me in last minute and took their time to take care of me and make me feel comfortable. Thank you Dr. Le 🙂

I. H. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…)I can trust Dr. Le’s expertise, honesty and always has the patient’s interest in his heart.   I also like his conservative approach.   I am so glad that my doctor recommended him to me after my tooth injury.  He fixed my teeth immediately and painlessly. I could not be happier.  I plan to have Dr. Le to be the dentist of my family.
The front desk manager Tina was also very helpful and sweet.

Madeline Maki Metcalf (Source: Facebook)


My family has gone to Simple Tooth for over 10 years and Dr. Vu Lee never seizes to impress us. His staff, office, and professionalism are as good as can be. Dr. Lee is always learning and growing his services which is very convenient for a busy life. I am a bit of a germ freak and love how clean the office is. But mostly, I have very sensitive teeth and Dr. Lee is always patient, gentle, and kind. I’ve never stayed with a dentist for so many years and, I’m pleased to say, I have no intention of changing anytime in the future! Thank you Dr. Lee!!!

Gina is a wonderful hygienist and Dr. Le is the only dentist I will see. I drive all the way from Huntington Beach because there’s no team better than Simple Tooth. Thank you also to Tina who always treats patients like they are friends stopping by to have dinner in her home. You guys rock!

Tashia Peterman (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vu Le is very personable and truly cares. A lot of dentists out there seem to be focused on how much they can make off of their patients. Dr. Le truly cares and doesn’t nickel and dime you or suggest treatments that are not necessary. His staff is wonderful and the environment is very relaxing. He also keeps up with all of the latest studies and technology in the field. He truly has a passion for what he does. A dentist you can truly trust.

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


Dr. Le and his staff are God sent. Honest and always willing to work with his patients. Gina is the best hygienist and makes sure that your teeth are cleaned thoroughly, bye bye to tartar. Tina and Sheila are always so helpful. The office has a great atmosphere and very uplifting. I highly recommend Dr. Le and his staff for all your dental needs. They are just great people.

Michael Misilmeri (Source: Google)


Dr. Le and his staff are caring and capable. They use the latest tools and techniques to ensure I have a comfortable experience with the best outcome. I especially appreciate that they not only work diligently to ensure that I receive the best care in the moment, but that they always consider my long-term health in everything they do.

This should be your new dental office!

Elishia W. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Le and his staff are great! I would definitely recommend him for adults that are afraid of going to the dentist. He’s very patient and calm. He’s pretty funny too, even though he doesn’t laugh at his own jokes…lol which actually makes them funnier. My teenage sons go, and one is terrified of needles! He actually did really good, because he has tried to literally run from a doctor with a needle before. I was really impressed at how calm my teenager was. He actually said that Dr. Le is the better that all other doctors with a needle…so that really tells you how good he is.

Erik F. from Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Le is a fantastic dentist and the whole office and staff are great. He is very thorough and attentive and does exceptional work. He goes through all the options and refers to specialists when needed. Gina is also a fantastic hygienist. Everyone is very friendly. The office is clean and spacious. There are windows in the treatment areas for good lighting and a view. My whole family goes here and I recommend them for anyone in SOC.

Katie Jane A. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


There are few doctors appointments I look forward to – but a visit to The Simpletooth is an opportunity to hang out for an hour or so with friends. I have the utmost trust and respect for Dr. Le. Up selling doesn’t exist at the Simpletooth, and I completely trust his diagnoses and advice. Tina, the office manager, is wonderful and Gina the hygienist does an amazing job. My teeth are the best they’ve been and I can’t recommend Dr. Le to enough people. Thank you Dr. Le!!!

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


Dr. Le and Staff are really great people.  The professional and friendly service are top notch.  I very much love the new bright and roomy office space.  I’ve been a patient for ten years and I don’t dread going to the dentist.  I look forward to them…and that’s the Simple Tooth };^)’

David Worsley (Source: Google)


Dr. Le is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had!! I appreciate that he is up to date with the latest technologies and techniques. He and his staff are always efficient and kind. For someone who had developed a distrust of dentists over the years, I can say that Dr. Le and his office has restored that trust! I would definitely recommend Dr. Le to anyone needing a dentist.

Linda Hauter Kimble (Source: Facebook)


Best dentist in the area. He loves his work & is always researching for the best & latest treatments. He has passion for his practice & it shows in his work.

Linda Tokar (Source: Facebook)


I have been a patient of Dr. Le’s for many years. For my most recent visit, I was in the midst of a busy season personally, and the office worked diligently to find an appointment time that worked for my schedule. As always, Dr. Le and his hygienist were kind, professional and efficient. I was seen on time and was back on my way in a timely fashion. I have recommended Dr. Le to every friend who has ever asked and will continue to do so.

Vanessa Soto (Source: Google)


Went in for my cleaning with Gina. She did such an amazing job. She was very friendly, thorough, gentle and best of all had me laughing the entire time! I know imagine that…laughter at a dental office lol. During my cleaning a small stubborn stain was spotted when DR. Le came in to do my exam he confirmed it was a cavity. Fortunately for me he was able to do it same day as my cleaning and even better news I didn’t have to get numb!!! He used the laser which was painless and had me on my way in no time. I can not thank this office enough. See you guys in February.

John A. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I searched for a dentist in the neighborhood when I found Dr. Le’s clinic. I am glad I did because I never knew that a visit to a dentist could be such a great experience. I just had my first appointment for dental filling. It was actually really painless and quick. I have to go in again in a couple of days and I am actually looking forward to it. Glad I found Dr. Le and I want to thank him for everything he is doing for me.

Katherine Davis (Source: Facebook)


I have always hated going to the dentist, but Dr. Le and his staff have always made it an enjoyable experience! Thank you Dr. Le for being the greatest dentist ever!(…)

As of March 2010, over 1,600 people have come through our doors, mostly from word of mouth referral. I was born just months from the end of the Vietnam War. Our family fled the very last ships out of Saigon. Pre-school began with one English word, "no." I grew up in Mission Viejo and learned the rest of the English language at Capistrano Valley High and UC Irvine. Now I speak English fluently, and my Vietnamese has an accent. Go figure. I graduated from Loma Linda University School of Dentistry in 2002. I worked for various dentists all over the place before coming back to Foothill Ranch. I'm an active member of Saddleback Church and I enjoy spending time with my lovely wife, Catherine.
