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

David E. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)


We love Dr. Yap and the entire staff!! They are friendly, professional and personal. We especially appreciate Dr. Yap’s care and concern. Our kids (6, 4 and 2) love it here and are always excited to come and see Tessa and Suri for teeth cleaning. They make it fun and comfortable for the kiddos.

(…) I got my dad to go too and he had a dental implant done by Dr. Yap that he has needed for years. He was so thrilled with his new tooth he wished he had done it long ago. He could not wait to show everyone his new smile. Seeing the impact this dental office has made within my own family truly makes my heart happy. The confidence I have knowing we are in good hands is priceless (…).

BEST dentist- I mean clearly!! Definitely worth the 45 minute drive to go here. They are always willing to work with my crazy schedule and have always seemed to figure out what ridiculous thing my teeth decide to throw at me. HIGHLY recommend!

My family and I love Dr. Yap’s office! They have done a great job with my 3 year old’s visits. They are patient and gentle with him. The work I have had done in the office has always been painless and they try to make you as comfortable as possible. No matter which dentist or hygienist you see, you’ll have a pleasant experience.

I had a very complex dental situation because of previous surgery done by another dentist out of the country. I came to Dr Yap for him to place the implants and crowns but also to add cosmetic as needed to hide the lost gum I had from the past surgery. Dr Yap was extremely detailed, careful and thorough. He did a perfect job. When I had another issue later..a late adverse effect from that past surgery he immediately spotted the issue and referred me to an excellent oral surgeon. His early detection helped prevent other problems. All of his staff are wonderful too! Nice, caring, patient, experienced. This practice is A+!

I’ve been seeing Dr. Yap for the past 10 years and definitely recommend him. He takes his time with you and explains things in detail and answers all questions. The hygienists are friendly, thorough, and very gentle.  I would recommend Dr. Yap and his office to everyone.

Jennifer B. from Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist in town! I am a mother of five and I would be comfortable with all of my children being in their dental chairs. Dr. Yap and (partner dentist) care about you. They want what’s best for you. It’s not just about the money. They won’t charge you for unnecessary work. A good mechanic and a good dentist is what every family needs. Definitely choose this dentistry!

Great family dentist! Our whole family goes! We have 5 and even my 4 year old had his recent appointment with Tessa, the hygienist, and she is sooo awesome! He did everything all by himself (without me even standing in the room with him) including x-Rays, cleaning his teeth, and special cavity treatment with fluoride. My son impressed me but I know it’s because of Tessa he felt so comfortable. And Dr Yap is professional and great! Can’t go wrong!

Alex U. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental care out there! Dr. Yap and his staff are simply amazing. When I call or come in they all know me by name. They make the experience so personable and friendly every time. I recently had a baby and they sent me a beautiful card to welcome him into the world, and on my last visit they even gave me baby mouth cleaning gel(safe for babies) to get him started on his dental care. I have since referred people to him and I will continue to bring in my family. Great atmosphere altogether!

MJ. G. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this team/family! I drive all the way down from (a long-distance) twice a year to see dr. Yap and my two hygienists (…). Would recommend them to everyone!!!! Don’t hesitate to make an appointment, you’ll love it.

My visit to Dr. Yap’s office was one of the best dental office experiences I’ve ever had. Every aspect was friendly, positive, professional, and informative. The care I received from everyone was exemplary, and their use of modern technology makes for a super pleasant time in the chair.
(…) I recommend this office with no reservations.

Thea Y. Huang (Source: Google)


My kids have been coming here for a year and a half. First with happy visit and now with teeth cleaning. My kids really like the staff. From the receptionist to the dental assistant to the dentist. Great staff and pleasant visits.

Update: we come here every 6 months and my kids go in without me now. They have been treated like family here. Staff is very friendly and helpful. Staff gives a lot of good tips and advice on how to brush kids teeth to avoid cavities.

Natalie L. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing the staff at Dr. Yap’s office for 10 years, my husband and my young son are also treated at this office. We are always happy with the care we receive here. Cleanings are done with ease and your teeth feel great when you leave. When I’ve had cavities filled the work was painless.

The staff is amazing and accommodating with my toddler. Thanks to the staff at Dr. Yap’s office my son is not afraid of getting cleanings. Looking forward to many more years with Dr. Yap’s office!

Benjamin F. from College Station, TX (Source: Yelp)


(…)The entire staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Yap has done an exceptional job anytime I have needed a filling. And the whole office has a warm atmosphere like being around family. In the past before this office I did not like the dentist office very much. But now I don’t mind at all coming to this dentist!

Kelly Miller (Source: Facebook)


Been coming to this office for years and find Dr. Yap and his staff very professional, friendly, helpful and an overall positive experience. Not a big fan of going to the dentist, but they have a way of making your visit painless. I highly recommend them for the whole family!

Anna M. from Garden Grove, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best DDS ever!  I have been a patient for 29 years.  I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else.  They make you feel like family.

Matt F. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist I’ve ever had.  Extremely friendly staff at all levels. Getting cavities fixed is never a pleasant experience, but the professionals at Dr. Yap’s office make it as good an experience as you could ask for.

Cyn W. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


My dental office is the best. After many years of inadequate care which resulted in the loss of 5 teeth, I found Dr. Andrew Yap and the office staff who are amazing. They use the most up to date equipment and take into account your personal foibles such as sensitivity to the ultrasound cleaner.

He made a partial denture appliance that I have used for almost two years now to great success. My mouth is now healthy and whole. Do not hesitate to make an appointment with the entire crew at Dr. Yap’s practice, you won’t regret it!

I have been coming to this dental office for nearly 30 years and have recommended them to many friends. Everyone is friendly and helpful. Tessa, my hygienist, is the BEST. I always look forward to visiting her. I have received only excellent dental care from Dr. Yap. Thank you to the whole staff!

Makenna Schinderwolf (Source: Facebook)


I have nothing but all around amazing things to say about Dr. Yap’s office and team. Every single person in his office is so friendly and makes coming to the dentist a fun experience. I have been a patient at this office since I was a kid and have always had positive experiences. I feel lucky to have always had a great dental team.

Aman S. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for a cleaning today and this is the best experience I’ve ever had with a dental hygienist. This practice is very detail-oriented and Tessa is truly passionate about dental hygiene and education. Will definitely be back!

Kevin L. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


(…) I took her at 4.5 and my son at 2.5. They did a free happy visit where they can learn about the tools and sit in the dentist’s chair. My daughter did so well that her happy visit turned into a cleaning. She had such a good time she came home and played dentist at home. My son wasn’t ready for a cleaning but at least he didn’t leave in tears.

Fast forward 6 months later. I prepped the kids for their next visit. My daughter again did great and was even ready for her (digital!) x-rays. This time the team got in her mouth and did some scraping but were gentle and so friendly. My son was gently introduced to the tools (Mr Counter, Mr Thirsty, etc) and next thing you know, he was getting some stubborn tartar scraped off without any complaints/tears/etc.

Needless to say I’ve been thoroughly impressed by Dr Yap and his team. They are friendly, professional and super kid-friendly. What a relief to know my kids’ teeth will be taken care of without stress or dread of going to the dentist.

Nancy C. from Stanton, CA (Source: Yelp)


My visit with quick, in and out for crown placement!!  Dr. Yap and Linda took great care of me, he takes his time to ensure my crown fit nicely, many rounds of grind to left, right, tap tap tap LOL… front, back, tap tap tap  🙂  making sure the fit and feel were perfect.  Linda worked just as hard to make sure I’m comfy, well Vasolined up!!  Always asking if I’m okay, thank you!  Yeah can’t go wrong with this office!!  Dr. Yap and his team are amazing, I’m glad I found a “home” office.  We’re at a point where, there’s little to fix, because he fixed everything!!  Highly recommend this office!!

I have been going to Dr. Yap and his wonderful staff for several years now. Since I had gone through chemo my teeth really suffered greatly. The staff has been so caring walking me through the different processes to get my teeth back in shape. I have never liked going to the dentist however, going to see Dr. Yap has helped to change that. Still nervous, but no longer afraid.

Alfred C. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Andrew Yap and team provide excellent service. I want to thank them for being professional and helping me get my smile back. Very clean facility and great atmosphere all around. The staff is amazing and very friendly, I recommend this place. It was easy for scheduling and they open early so you can get appointments in before work.

Kelly M. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yap and his staff are the best! I have been going to his office for a long time and have no intention of ever leaving. Everyone is so professional and they always make you feel welcome. Tessa, you are awesome!

Cecilia Palmer (Source: Google)


It’s so nice to feel recognized and comfortable with a local business. Drs. Yap and (partner dentist) are cutting edge professionals with a staff that is just as friendly and welcoming as you could ask. They know who you are and care about what’s going on with you–not just your dental health, but your life in general. The offices are clean and quiet, and there’s a real family feel as photos of the staff flash across the monitor in the waiting room.

Makenna S. from Walnut, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have nothing but all around amazing things to say about Dr. Yap’s office and team. Every single person in his office is so friendly and makes coming to the dentist a fun experience. I have been a patient at this office since I was a kid and have always had positive experiences. I feel lucky to have always had a great dental team!! Highly recommend if you are in search of a good dentist or if you have young children! Great for families.

Dr. Yap and his staff are always welcoming and friendly. I appreciate how Dr. Yap is thorough and at the end of my appointments, he updates me on issues that they have been observing and things to be aware of. Thanks Dr. Yap!

Anna K. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very warm and professional staff. They stay up-to-date with current dental practices and explain everything in understandable layman terminology. They really help us strategize getting all our 3 kids in together on off-school days so that we can minimize pulling them out of school (important for my high schoolers).

Carolyn Laurin (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Yap has been my dentist for over 10 years and I cannot say enough about him!! He’s a perfectionist, has all the latest dental technology, a wonderful staff and a very warm and inviting environment!

Nancy Chau (Source: Facebook)


This is a great family!! Since meeting Dr. Yap and his team back in 2010, I would not go anywhere else! Dr. Yap answers all my questions, his team is warm and welcoming. I used to be scared of going to any dentist, but no longer… thanks everyone!! (…)

Aaron P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for a few years now and everyone is so kind and caring! Some of my friends dread going to the dentist, but since I have been coming here I actually enjoy it. When I move out to Irvine, I still plan on making the drive there because their service is so great.

Dr. Yap’s dental office is the most professional operation I have ever experienced. Terryl, Tessa, Seri, Linda, Dr. Chen and Dr. Yap were all super friendly and enjoyable to be around. Treatment consisted of a cleaning, x-rays and 3 replaced fillings… and to my surprise I never felt any pain. Pricing for services rendered I found extremely competitive. For anyone in search of a new dentist, I definitely recommend giving Dr. Yap a call.
