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

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


Had a wisdom tooth causing me a lot of pain and Dr. Ami and Dr. Kweider were amazing. Just as much as Angel and David.They took care of me quickly, super kindly, and checked up on me afterwards. Didn’t try to up-sell me on a bunch of work, they really cared about helping me feel better.
I’ve had bad experiences at other places, and had a little panic attack, and they calmed me and went above and beyond. I’m forever grateful for them and feel comfortable going back to get more work done.
Definitely recommend them, especially when you appreciate the gentle yet direct approach.

First visit went above and beyond well. Making an appointment was amazingly fast. Anita, great job. Getting in was just as fast. And the staff is very friendly. I was in Dr. Ami’s care expeditiously. She handled my issues with TLC and I appreciate that. She did the immediate work needed and that my insurance would let her do. The fillings I needed repaired felt awesome right away. No pain at all. Thanks so much. So far I am very pleased and plan on returning to her practice in the future.

8 months ago I have been seeing Dr Ami as my dentist for 10+ years. After she moved to South County I followed her after I tried a local dentist who messed up a tooth. I refer all my family and friends to her. I drive from Riverside to see her with my kids because we refuse to be treated badly and overcharged by other dentists. I will never go anywhere else for dentistry. She is the best.

I came to Dr. Ami after getting a quote for over $10,000 from Avalon Dentistry just across the way from her office. She used the new modern equipment to come to a fast conclusion that I didn’t need half the things Avalon Dentistry said I did. I had her do the few things that made me see the dentist in the 1st place and all is well – for a fraction of what Avalon wanted to get from me by way of a fraudulent prognosis. I know for some uneducated people the new equipment can be alarming, sending up all sorts of “red flags” but with a short internet search these new things should not be that scary. I have referred many people to Dr. Ami because unlike most dentist in this area, she actually knows what she is doing. Also, quick note
Some people love to give negative replies because it makes them feel powerful when in their own lives they feel weak. This is easy to check by looking at all their postings and negative ratings on everything from doctors to donuts.

Trabuco Hills Dentistry is made of real professionals. Dr. Ami is just amazing and she is my favorite dentist, period. She’s caring, she is not causing any pain and she is always interested in learning more about you. Her work is really quality driven at all times. The staff is friendly and they keep you aware of your appointments all the time. I am highly recommending  Trabuco Hills Dentistry!

Dr Ami and her team are kind, patient, pleasant and organized. My kids and husband were very much afraid and had anxiety before meeting Dr Ami. She explained everything from the exam down to why the kids need to get the sugar bugs out. (Cavaitis) Her office is so clean and doesn’t smell like a dental office. Her handshare gentle and you don’t remeber shess working in your mouth. My kids noticed that right away and love Dr Ami. They feel like they are just visiting Dr Ami and want to grow sugar bugs just to go see her. I don’t think of going anywhere else.

Dr Ami has the best touch when it comes to dentistry.  I went and got a root canal at my lunch and came back to work and people cannot believe I did not have any pain.  If you’re looking for a clean efficient dentist this is the place to go!

The most genuine dental team I have ever come across! Dr. Ami is kind and honest in her treatment plans, and does not quote me with extravagant treatments that other dentists have. My family goes to her and couldn’t be happier with her and her entire team. Angel at the front desk is patient and thorough in her follow up with the insurance companies and is always prompt in updating me! I initially went to Dr Ami through a referral from a family member, after I received quite the run around with expensive quotes from other dentists. Dr Ami helped me and I haven’t looked into any other dentist ever since! The office is extremely clean and the atmosphere is positive and welcoming 🙂

Dr Amy is awesome, her fees are fair and her staff is great. Very rare to find such good customer service these days. Thank you Trabuco Hills Dentistry for giving me a comfort level visiting the dentist.

I had written review some weeks ago. Now, I am getting back to give a review on a dental visit. It took me a while but, I did manage to go back to Trabuca Hills Dentistry for a teeth cleaning. I am very satisfied with my visit. Needless to say, Melissa and Jesus, were as nice as they were the first time. first  Dr. Ami, did my cleaning and she was calm, competent and very knowledgable about dental care. I felt confident that I had received a very good cleaning. I also came away with the impression that Dr. Ami, handles her Dental Office with integrity and honesty. If I am in the area again in the future and need a dentist, I will go back to Dr. Ami.
