★★★★★I had a wonderful experience at this office. Everything went very smoothly, from scheduling an appointment to the procedure. They even checked in with me a few days after the procedure to make sure I was doing ok at home. I needed to get a lot of work done, and the staff was very helpful in guiding me through what the best way was to go through my dental insurance to minimize out-of-pocket cost. Would highly recommend.

★★★★★ I brought my eight year old daughter to Braces San Juan Capistrano, and without reservation, this is the BEST orthodontics office she has ever been to. My daughter always sees Dr. Akhavan and thinks he is fantastic in both her expertise and personality. The entire office is extremely friendly and very helpful. If you need a dentist, this is where you should go. From the moment we enter the front door until we close the door behind us, our experience has been 100% positive! Try them, you'll see!
