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

I have been coming to this practice since 2000.  The original dentist was great.  When he left the practice, I was a little nervous what to expect.  But thank goodness Dr Patel is great as well!  Very hands on and the work I have had there is top notch.  His staff is great as well.  I lived in LA for awhile, tried a dentist out there, and had a bad experience.  I drove from LA to Yorba Linda to this office.  I now live in Moreno Valley, and same thing, tried a dentist out there and had bad experience again, and now I make the hour drive to have the peace of mind to know that I and my choppers are going to get the best treatment and service.  Highly recommended!

Dr. Patel is the definition of a stand up guy. I made a last minute appointment and he was able to accommodate me. My visit ran well over the allotted time and into his lunch plans and he didn’t make me feel an ounce of guilt. I felt he gave my teeth the attention they needed and didn’t rush me to get out of his chair until he was 100% happy with the results. Also, my wife is a dental hygienist and she knew they could have tried to “up-sell” me on my treatment, but sure enough Dr. Patel didn’t. I should also mention the assistant (whose name I forgot to ask) was equally great. I highly recommend this office.

Dr. Patel and staffs professionalism is much appreciated. They are very detailed in their work and it shows! They believe in doing things right the first time. They show a level of being perfectionists in their line of work. I trust them with my teeth and the rest of my family’s teeth. My daughters have braces and they were able to work around them without a problem. They are a Six Star in my book!

Lisa B. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to a lot of different dentists so far in my life and this one is EXCELLENT!  Now I won’t go to anyone else.  My whole family goes here.  His staff are awesome and very friendly.  Dr. Patel tells it like it is.  He’ll narrate what he’s doing, making the patient feel more comfortable.  I no longer am afraid of the dentist.  I still don’t like it when I need something done, but knowing he’ll be doing it makes it a lot easier to get through.  A++ . Thank you SO much Dr. Patel (& staff!)  You’re AWESOME!! 🙂

I recently started going to Dr Patel for my dental care after 18 years of military dental care.  He gave me some very honest feedback about the care I had been lacking all those years and within a week, any neglect on the military’s part was taken care of by him.  He did excellent work and explained all that he was doing very well.  He also gave me a few lessons in care for my teeth and gums that no one ever took the time to explain to me before.  Lastly, when I asked for a second opinion for my wife (who is still in the military), he took the time to examine her mouth and let us know what care she would require to bring her oral health to the same level he had brought mine to.  We are very pleased with the care and honesty he provides.

Been coming for 17 years, wouldn’t dream of letting anyone else work on me. Dr. Is excellent,  Alot of pride in his work. Liz the office manager always on top of your schedule and your medical ins. You know your in good hands with Linda who is the Dental Hygienists,  I always feel she thorough and is meticulous with her work.

Margaret R. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down by far the best dentist I’ve ever been too. I always walk out of this office pain free. His staff and Dr . Patel are absolutely amazing. I was hesitant to go back after I heard the original Dentist I had passed away and I have to say that Dr. Patel works on my teeth just the way they were worked on before. That is no joke and I know the original owner which he’s very good friends with would be really proud of his work. It feels like home when I go there and everyone makes me feel very comfortable. I would recommend this dentistry to everyone I know . Thank you for always taking care of me Dr. Patel and staff . You are all amazing !!! My teeth today after leaving feel  good as new and my sensitivity is gone so far and feel great!!! It’s nice to drink cold water again and eat comfortably

I’ve been using yelp for years, but had never wrote a review for a business before today. Dr. Patel was recommended by a friend and at first, I was anxious. I typically do not have good experiences and end up leaving appointments, with past dentists, exhausted and in pain. Dr. Patel completely changed my opinion of how dentists can be. His staff made the appointment the day before (totally last minute), which was amazing! And I was seen as soon as I arrived (double points in my book). Dr. Patel made the cleaning easy and his staff made the X-rays a piece of cake. He discovered I had a few cavities and I was not pleased. I didn’t want to make any additional appointments and I have a slight fear of needles… Actually, let’s be real, I cry just by looking at a needle. Dr. Patel was actually able to fill my cavities that day (WOW) and the numbing shots? What shots? I did not feel the needle! Dr. Patel is a great conversationalist and was able to distract me before the numbing shots. And I honestly felt only a pinch. It was so easy. I was nervous for nothing. In total, I was in and out in an hour and a half. Dr. Patel also contacted me, a few hours after my appointment, to see how I was feeling with the numbness. NO OTHER DENTIST HAS EVER FOLLOWED UP WITH ME. Triple points in my book!!!!

I would recommend Yorba Linda Family Dentistry to anyone looking for a new dentist including my mother who I referred last month. Dr. Patel and his staff treat their customers, as I am sure they would want to be treated. My family has never had a bad experience and they are always willing to work with you to make sure you get the quality of service needed to take care of any dental issue you may have.

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


I hate dentists! But I had a great visit with Dr Patel, he was able to remove my coffee stains on my teeth and patch up a sensitive area and I was out the door in 30 minutes.  I normally have a really hard time at the dentist’s office so I dont go very often, but this was as good as it gets (for a dental appt) and will definitely come back.

Dana K. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and staff are top notch!  Myself, husband, and son have been his patients since the beginning of his practice.  Not only is he very personable, but more importantly, he is a perfectionist!  I recently had a crown replaced and he made sure it fit and looked perfect (handed me a mirror so I could check the color).  Elizabeth is super sweet at the front desk and also assists him.  Please don’t hesitate to come see them!  By the way, they have made some beautiful changes to their office — it’s a very pleasant place to have dental work

john h. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dentist’s nickname is drill&fill. He never found a tooth he wouldn’t put a filling in. Cavity or no cavity. Got a great smile doesn’t he? You would too if you were raking the dough he makes. I give him him the 5 stars for being such a good business man. So if you need a dentist to do a complete unwarranted makeover on your teeth, you came to right man! His office motto-there’s a sucker born every minute .Don’t forget your wallet!

Yagnesh V. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


Phenomenal work and excellence to detail. Like many others, I hate going to the dentist. However, after much pain and eating only on one side of my mouth for far too long I had to find somewhere to go.  After reading the favorable reviews on here I gave Dr. Patel a chance; and I could not have been happier.  Dr. Patel has helped me to devise not only a reactive treatment plan, but a proactive plan to help out my grill.  I can’t rate Dr. Patel high enough!  Thanks, Doc!

Kathleen I. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started going to this dental office about 30 years ago when Dr. Pathak was there. Dr. Patel is the ideal person to take Dr. Pathak’s place. I now take my children there as well. Some dentists don’t do as well with kids as others, but Dr. Patel is excellent!  I’ve even moved out of the area and still drive out a few times a year for him!  He is such a perfectionist, I never worry if I’m leaving with mediocre work.  Elizabeth has been there since I started going on the 80s and is the most helpful person! HIGHLY recommended dentist!

Riaaz F. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m usually not one for writing reviews unless I have a really good or bad experience. In this case it was exceptional!  From registration at front of house all the way through to seeing Dr. Patel and his assistant Liz who was equally amazing. I went in for a routine clean and polish and transpired I needed a couple of fillings which I’m grateful they were able to do at the same time saving me a lot of time and effort. The treatment was quick and effortless with Dr. Patel giving me a detailed synopsis of my teeth. The service was affable! Dr. Patel has a great team working with him, they made me feel right at ease, they were polite, personable and attentive to my requirements. You get a true sense of the “family” dentistry when visiting his surgery. Keep up the great work guys!

Monal H.from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel is great! If I could give him more stars, I would. The previous owner of this practice unfortunately passed away and Dr. Patel has done an awesome job of taking it over. He is incredibly personable and always listens to any concerns I have.  He doesn’t try to rush through his appointments and takes his time explaining procedures, treatment, and different options that are available to me. I love that he is so thorough and precise and truly cares about his patients. I will definitely be coming back to see him and would recommend him to anyone looking for a good, trustworthy dentist in the area.

Jenna R. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


FINALLY! I found a dentist that I actually like and can trust! Dr. Patel really explains everything for any treatment before doing anything. Office is super close to my house making it very convenient. Staff is AWESOME and very friendly. Great experience!!

Shawn L. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Patel and his staff are simply great all around people. From the moment you walk into the door as a patient they are extremely welcoming and always timely. Dr. Patel is very thorough with explaining exactly what he is going to do and his work is excellent. For someone that hates the dentist and loves candy this is a BIG deal for me to write a review. I would highly recommend him to any of my friends or family.

Ariel M. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Patel is very kind, generous and friendly. I completely trust him as my dentist and am very glad to be under his care.  The care feels very personal as he always asks how things are going in my life, remembers what I was last up to, and inquires how things are going. He’s very conscientious of my lifestyle from college student to recent graduate, which helps a lot regarding time and financial situations. The rest of his staff are also great, they’re considerate and kind and I also feel as if I’m in good hands with them as well. The hygienist is wonderful and I love catching up with her on visits. It feels like I’m visiting a friend and not a dentist when I go to Dr Patel. I’m very thankful I have such a great dentist.

Lourdes V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Myself and my family have been Dr. Patel’s patients for the last 3 years. I was the first to come to the office, after that I was sold. His staff is friendly, welcoming, and I don’t have to wait a while to be seen. Dr. Patel is so gentle, professional, and friendly. My son was at that time 11yrs old, he was horrified to go to the dentist, I had been taking him all the way to Pasadena to a child’s dentistry due to his fear.  He was very anxious on the first visit but everything went smoothly, he doesn’t like to come obviously but when his cleaning comes around it’s not a struggle. My mom is super sensitive when it comes to her mouth, I brought her in and he was great. Dr. Patel was sensitive to her pain and was very gentle, again he did a wonderful job.

Bryan S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like most people, I try to find any excuse to go to the dentist. I have tried many offices in my time, and I feel Dr. Patel’s office is a great find. They have Saturday appointments so I can make the drive from Huntington Beach without hitting traffic and taking off from work. His operation is very well run, efficient, and personal. He checked my wisdom teeth with x-Rays and did a routine examination and cleaning in about 45-60 min. Spent the entire time with me aside from taking the films. Great office.

Kristy Z. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


First off, let me say that I went to another dentist who tried to rip me off! Feeling confused and scared, I called my mom who referred me to this dentist. They took me in right away and didnt try to do all these procedures. Instead they were reasonable, decently priced, friendly and incredibly hospitable. I couldnt be any happier. Liz the front desk girl/dental assistant is so very nice as well as the dentist Smitesh! If you are looking for a dentist who cares about your well being and isn’t a crook and is a decent, patient person, this is your guy! If I could give this place more stars on the rating scale I would! Thank you Yorba Linda Family Dentistry! Highly recommend them!

Neha A. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


There is honestly so many great things I can say about him, but I’ll start with this, when you walk into the office it is very nice and clean, “less is more”! He is one of the absolute best doctors i have ever come across. His work is exceptional. The staff there is amazing! The staff explains everything very precisely and everyone is super professional!  I felt very safe and comfortable with Dr. Patel. he has a soft touch and not forcing anything, he explains everything in a very relaxed tone and when you’re in there everything is very laid back. He is an honest and respectful doctor. You can definetly tell he likes his profession. I would recommend this all the way!

Erin D. from Tustin, CA (Source: Facebook)


Dr.Patel is great and so is his staff. We have been coming to this office for almost 10 years   My entire family uses Dr. Patel and we have always been happy with his attention and professionalism.  Most importantly, he is gentle and makes sure his patients are comfortable.  Liz always makes sure we don’t miss an appointment and is so flexible when accommodating our busy schedules!

Allie K. from Wilmington, NC (Source: Yelp)


If you want a fine dentist who takes pride and is a perfectionist, Dr. Patel is your guy.  I have been his patient for four years and have been pleased with all of the work he has done for me.  Your satisfaction is his number one goal.  Dr. Patel is a nice guy with a great personality, too.  Like me, you will never go anywhere else!
