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

I can’t say enough great things about Dr. Lam.  We just got California Care insurance and was able to get dental insurance coverage for my kids. We made an appointment at TRUSMILES dental and saw Dr. Lam. My kids loves her!  She is very sweet,  very knowledgable , very gentle and so patient. My 9 year old son (who is super curious) and my 6 year old daughter asked her so many questions and she took the time to answer them.  She is really good with the kids. Believe it or not, my kids keeps asking me when will they get to go back to get their teeth clean and for Dr. Lam to fix the “sugar bugs “.
I highly recommend Dr.Lam

I enthusiastically recommend Dr. Lam and her staff. Super dentist, very professional and caring. Our family is very happy with and confident in her care.

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


Dr. Lam is a caring dentist who has great knowledge about her profession.  She takes great care in everything she does.  She takes her time and does not rush making her very thorough.  She explains things very clearly and in terms that are understandable and provides all of the information necessary to make decisions about the treatment you are about to receive.

This place was absolutely fantastic! Ok, so I haven’t gone to the dentist in 13 years (ya seriously) as I’m not a fan of pain. For some reason I have always associated the dental office with pain, maybe its from all of that ortho I went through as a kid. So I tried this place out, they were having a special so why not. I went in and it was like I was part of their family. I told them how long it had been and it didn’t faze them, they just said lets take a look. X-rays, cleaning, exam, no problem. No pain in any way. What really helped was being able to watch a DVD while I sat in the chair, it took my mind off of where I was. It was so easy I asked them to schedule me for another appointment in 6 months. They said they would send me a reminder in the mail and give me a call when it was time. I highly recommend this facility

While i live in San Diego, i go to Trusmiles in Huntington Beach.  Why?  Dr. Lam is the best dentist i have found.  I have to admit in have family in Orange County, so i always tie in my appointments with a visit to my parents, but with the time that Dr. Lam takes, and the work that she does I know that i am getting good value and great results for my money.  Being a cash patient, i want to feel that i got my money’s worth and not feel like i just walked out of the dentist office without my pants.  My family and i are always happy to see Dr. Lam, and my kids love the place which makes it even better.

Dr. Lam is the best dentist. My family and I always go to her for all of our dental needs. She is caring and gentle and very skilled at the work of dentistry. Whenever I go to her for my teeth cleaning, it was never a painful experience. It was always fast and I came out with super clean teeth. She is super good and patient with young children. My kids are never afraid to go to her office. Overall, I would recommend her to all of my family and friends.

John D. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


These gals are really helpful, friendly, and honest.  They are NOT one of those shady dental places that tries to up sell you like an auto mechanic.  They have competitive prices and a clean environment.  Would def recommend

Ray S. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve ever had. This is my dentist for life now. Absolutely professional and explains everything. Dr. Lam really goes out of her way to explain and more importantly, is impressively accurate at avoiding pain. Now you know why I am never going to another dentist. She is so good. I hate the stinging sensation at some deep cleanings but with Dr. Lam I barely feel anything. Honestly I dont know how she does it but it is a testament to her skill. I originally went in expecting ho-hum dental work and maintenance but received thoroughly impressive results.

Shirley B. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


First off, I HATE the dentist, but Dr. Lam makes the experience tolerable. She makes sure that I am comfortable throughout x-rays, cleaning, cavity fillings, etc. Her assistant Monica and front receptionist are also the sweetest! Dr. Lam explains everything to me throughout the time and she is the best dentist I’ve been to.

Natali R. from La Mirada, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lam is very professional and kind. I had a great experience with her and her staff. She spent a lot of time with me explaining what I needed to have done and she gave me a lot of trust. I will definitely come back to Dr. Lam and recommend her to my family and friends. Very happy with the experience!

Timothy W. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was never a fan of visiting the dentist until I found this dental office run by Dr Lam. I was always afraid of the pain associated with getting dental work done since I was a kid and never grew out of it until now. Dr Lam was very patient and professional. She assured me that my teeth cleaning and cavity filling replacement would be painless and she was right. She did such a fantastic job that I made my appointment for my next teeth cleaning visit immediately after I was done with my appointment. Dr Lam also saw my three boys. Of course they were fearful to visit the dentist but upon entering her dental office and seeing a cartoon showing on the tv helped get their attention. This office is definitely kid friendly and Dr Lam is great with kids!!! They have a tv hanging on the wall in front of the dental chairs so they can play a movie for the kids while they had their teeth worked on. This was great because it kept my kids distracted from what she was doing. She was very gentle and patient while cleaning the kids teeth. The cleaning and exam went so well for all three kids that they aren’t afraid to come back to the dental office. And afterwards, they got to choose a little toy instead of a lollipop like some other dental offices around town. This shows me that she cares about my kid’s teeth especially after she worked on them instead of encouraging them to eat more candy so they can keep coming back to get work done. If you are looking for a family dentist to see you and your kids, don’t bother going anywhere else. This office is extremely professional and caring. You won’t find a better dental office to visit and a better dentist that actually cares about your teeth more than Dr Lam!! She is definitely going to be our family dentist for many years to come.

If you’re looking for a place to get quality dental care then look no further! I had a wonderful experience at TruSmiles. Dr. Lam was very patient and spent a lot of time informing me of her actions and answering my questions. She doesn’t skimp out on explaining how the procedures will be carried out and uses a camera show me issues. There wasn’t a time during my visit where I felt rushed. I will trust Dr. Lam for my future dental care. The dental work was thorough and quality checked. She works fast and efficient. Making an appointment was painless and easy, I had my appointment the next day. The office isn’t overloaded with patients and I didn’t have to wait at all. They don’t overbook their office and make sure they have enough time for each patient. The front desk is very courteous and available to talk to. None of them had that “I don’t want to be here” vibe and they all made an effort to care to my needs.   I would recommend this office to anyone looking for a family dentist! It’s a family friendly place with employees that are trusting, careful, qualified, and patient! I walked away feeling like I received top quality dental care and that the dentist cared about my oral health!

Very satisfied with Dr. Lam, she was honest with my work that needed to be done and explained everything clearly. Very nice and clean office unlike other high volume dental offices that try to get patients in and out. Dr. Lam explained my options and did not pressure me at all. I can tell she cared about my teeth as she took her time to go over my oral health. She also accommodated me the same day I called when I was in pain. Highly recommended.

Linda Y. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been with Dr. Lam for about 2 years and we are still very happy. She is so patient with me and my kids and they love her! She is very through with her exam and explanations. My 14 years old teenager follows all her recommendations and has perfect beautiful teeth!  She gets so much complements for her  smile and it’s cavity free! My 12 years old son has a great smile and he is cavity free too!  I wish I had a doctor like her when I was a kid.  #happymom #cavityfree #awesomedoctor

Peter O. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Lam for the treating the dental problems that I needed care for and fro taking her time and patience to clearly explaining to me my questions and concerns.    Her assistant was also very professional and patience in assisting Dr. Lam with the dental treatments that I needed.   I am so glad that I found her office, which I originally went to because I know from previously being in the East Coast that Tufts Dental School is one the top ten best dental schools in the U.S. I am so glad that I made the right choice and went to Dr. Lam at Trusmile Dental after researching the world renowned Tufts Dental and Medical School in Boston.   I definitely recommend Dr. Lam to all my friends and co workers.

I’ve been to many dentists and gone through many procedures and this is my favorite dental place! The office is very clean and organized. The office is often decorated according to seasons/holidays, who likes a plain, boring dental office anyway! There is also entertainment for the kids in the waiting room, big plus! The receptionist is very nice and is great at calling to schedule/confirm appointments. Dr. Lam is VERY knowledgeable and explain everything so you have a better understanding during your appt. She does not hesitate to answer any question. I have tons of fillings and she was able to fix/redo the fillings from prior dental procedures-without any pain, she’s generous with the numbing if you just ask. I even have a questionable filling from a former dentist that showed up on the x-ray and she goes out of her way to figure the problem out. She’s also great with kids! Was very gentle during a check-up for my 2 yr. old. Gives out goodies for them! I live out of state now and am willing to fly out for checkups cuz she is the only teeth doc I would trust for dental work and advice!

Trusmiles Family Dental is a nice dental clinic to have your teeth cared, Dr. Lam was very nice and carefully went through all of the procedures that I need in my last week’s visit to her clinic. Also, her assistant, Karen was nice too.  I had my teeth X-rayed, cleaned, fluoride treatment and cavities filled with great satisfaction. Yes, I would recommend Dr. Laura Lam’s dental clinic to my family and friends. Update 10/28/14: I went back to Dr. Lam for the cavity fill which had been done 10 days ago. There is some roughness in the cavity fill which has caused my dental floss torn coming through. Dr. Lam was carefully went through the roughness and showed me the issue and did the process of smoothing that rough fill. I appreciate it. Thanks, Dr. Lam and Karen.

A great dentist and staff.  I had a great experience with Dr. Lam , Who actually spent a great deal of time with me, unlike my prior dentist who are usually spend about two minutes with me after having my teeth cleaned by the hygienist.  Dr. Lam spent  time explaining my X-rays and what issues I may have in the future and why.  

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


Dr. Lam at Trusmiles Family Dental is fantastic! She took the time to explain the procedures, it was painless and very thorough. On top of it, the office is clean and modern, and easy to get to (right on Beach and Slater). If you are looking for a dentist for your whole family, come here. You will not regret it.

Twee T. from California (Source: Yelp)


As a Yelping enthusiast, I want to continue to enjoy delicious food and drinks, so I take really good care of my teeth. And let’s be honest, it’s also a vanity thing, haha 😉 Dr. Laura Lam is such a warm, happy and friendly person and so is her staff. Her practice is very fast and efficient. I never have to wait much after check-in. Cleanings are done herself so it cuts down on the time in office because you don’t have to wait for the dentist’s evaluation after the dental hygienist is finished with you. She’s professional and always takes my questions kindly and seriously. Coming here feels less about necessary clinical procedures than it is about seeing someone who cares about you (your teeth particularly) after six long months. I highly recommend her if you enjoy personable healthcare—a rarity these days.

Candy K. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love taking my 3 kids here! We’ve been coming here for a couple years now and they are honestly the nicest people and very honest.  My kids have never “dreaded” coming here.  We’ve never felt uncomfortable and they’ve never told us that we can’t accompany our children.  I would recommend them to anyone!!!

Kristi L. from Glendora, CA (Source: Yelp)


The BEST dentist I’ve ever been to.  She is a sole practitioner, so you only see one dentist, unlike the dental mills that seem to be the norm nowadays.  She does not double schedule her appointments.  Because of this, you are the only patient being seen.  This helps keep your appointment customized and you have her full attention.  She also has Saturday openings by appointment only which helps with busy schedules.  I especially appreciated Dr. Lam’s honesty in giving me choices on filling by son’s baby teeth.  Thought they had cavities, he will be losing them soon.  She gave me less invasive choices, rather than simply filling the cavity to make money. I have all my family coming here now.

Sarah W. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I needed a dentist for my long time problem molar and some parents at school recommended Trusmiles Family Dental to me.  The first visit went very well.  The office was clean and the receptionist and staff were very friendly and helpful.  Dr. Lam was very gentle, she took time to exam my teeth and patiently explained to me what needed to be done.  I needed a second visit and was able to schedule the appointment right away after the inlay was delivered to the office.  My molar was fixed at the second visit.  Dr. Lam did an excellent work.  So happy with the result!  She is professional, extremely knowledgeable, helpful and kind!  Highly recommended!!!

Mayra M. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Awesome receptionist, very professional. Her assistants are always helpful and gentle. Dr. Lam is amazing! She’s very detail oriented and takes time to address any questions or concerns I have. She’s also honest in any concerns she might have. Office is very clean and the atmosphere is welcoming. I’m glad I tried her office

Zack K. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lam is very skilled and professional. I was extremely comfortable and felt confident that I was in good hands the whole time. The office is immaculate and the staff are all very warm and friendly. I believe they genuinely care about their clientele.  Dr. Lam is patient, attentive and focused. I’ve never had a teeth cleaning and filling with such precision and skill. I experienced no discomfort whatsoever. Karen is a great assistant and also very attentive. Veronica, the receptionist, is also warm and friendly. This is the best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist! I will definitely recommend Dr. Lam to my friends and family.
Thanks for doing such a great job!
