" Dr. Son and his staff always provide a thorough and comfortable experience in what can be an uncomfortable circumstance-dentistry! He has great knowledge and integrity and cares for the whole person, not just teeth. "
" Dr. Son was an answer to a prayer for me. As I was traveling full time across the country, I experienced a major tooth ache and needed immediate attention. After visiting with 2 other local dentists in the San Clemente area, both of which highly recommended a root canal, Dr. Son saved the tooth by suggesting Ozone therapy. My pain went away after one day and my tooth isn't compromised with foreign materials and the traumatic effects of a root canal. Terry at the front desk was also a very informed resource in helping me understand my options before I met with Dr. Son, and she worked with me to fit me Into their very busy schedule. If I lived in the surrounding Irvine area, my entire family would be regular patients of Dr. Son. I highly recommend his office."
" Dr. Son is such a great dentist! He is very patient and kind and his staff is so friendly and compassionate. My last dentist could not numb my mouth and would get upset with me, but Dr. Son uses more advanced technology with a type of drip and also figured out why I wasn't numbing. I love that he uses ozone water and understands the whole body connection to the teeth through Naturopathy. My teeth look great, which is the bottom line. I personally don't like going to the dentist, but Dr. Son and his staff have helped me through this and made it a more positive experience. I highly recommend Dr. Son and his staff to anyone looking for a dentist! "
" I appreciate Dr.Sons knowledge, experience and sensitivity to arrive at a place in his career where he is breaking with tradition in dentistry to really serve the whole patient, and the holistic approach to each person. "
" Dr. Son is not your typical dentist! Loved his approach, whole-body understanding of how the teeth and dental health affect overall health (especially autoimmune). I appreciated that the initial consult was thorough with plenty of time for questions & some education. Very much looking forward to coming back and referring friends/patients! Thank you!! "
" Doctor Son and his staff are "TRUE PROFESSIONALS" on every level. EVERY aspect of my experience while in his clinic was actually quite pleasurable. I had six hours of work done and had a ton of mercury removed. I drove from Encinitas (San Diego) to Irvine based on the recommendation of top holistic practitioner from Los Angeles. I have been in the Medical Industry for twenty three years, so I do know what I am talking about. I was extremely comfortable during my entire procedure. I think I feel asleep at some point during the second procedure. I was so comfortable, relaxed and experienced NO PAIN. Even the day after...nothing, no pain or the slightest discomfort. And remember...I had a lot of work done. I was surprised when Dr. Son personally called me the day after checking on me because I didn't even think it was necessary, but he did. I felt great! It was such a pleasure working with Dr. Son and his entire staff. I will continue to see Dr. Son for hygiene and check ups. I feel like I am in very very good hands under Dr. Son's roof. THANK YOU Dr. Son! "
"Dr. Son is the absolute best at making sure you feel ZERO pain. His numbing process is the equivalent of breathing. You just don't know when the process has started and then your gums are numb. So True! Thankfully, I have good teeth but about 12 years ago my gums were receding.
I had the procedure done to fix the problem, it included stitches, very uncomfortable. Well, they were receding again; I needed to have them treated. I asked what his treatment was, I didn't want tissue taken from the roof of my mouth; more stitches. He told me he does a procedure that will not allow my gums to ever recede again. No stitches! When I was in the chair for the procedure, I asked Dr. Son if it was going to hurt (I don't think about those kind of things until the moment arrives), I never felt the injections to numb my mouth AND after the procedure my mouth was just a little sore for a couple of days .
That's it! Dr. Son uses oxygen with his procedures which definitely speeds up the healing process. He is on top of the latest technology looking for the finest methods to treat his patients. My husband has been going through Dr. Son for extensive treatment over the last few years; I think he feels like he is a part of their family. The staff is wonderful, very kind and professional. Terry, Office Manager is an absolute doll, I look forward to seeing her. We live in Corona but we will always drive to Irvine for the best dentist treatment(s) anyone could expect.
I highly recommend them!! "
"Dr. Son is a very skilled and knowledgeable dentist. Better yet, he is friendly and you can tell he cares. His staff all made me feel comfortable and well taken care of. From the moment I came in for my first visit 4 years ago I knew I had found a great office that I could count on for my dental care."
"What will likely matter most to people, Dr. Son is the absolute best at making sure you feel ZERO pain. His numbing process is the equivalent of breathing. You just don't know when the process has started and then your gums are numb. Sounds too good to be true. That's the feeling I get every single time I go through the process.
Dr. Son is very patient and genuinely gives off a positive comforting energy.
I've been maybe 7 times and each time I leave grateful."
"I've been a patient of Dr Son and his team for 10 years - and I can't see myself ever wanting to find another dentist. Dr son and his team are always professional, always on time and the experience of perfection is bar none."
"We have been going to this dentist for many years and have always had a great experience. They are professional and kind and always get the job done. The technicians are really gentle with your teeth and nice to talk with. We will be coming back!"
"Always a pleasant experience! I've had my wisdom teeth taken out here, and I've also had implants done, and of course routine cleanings. Dr. Son and his staff make you feel at home when I usually get anxiety from visiting other dentists. I actually look forward to visiting Dr. Son and his staff for my routine cleanings!"
"What an amazing office and an amazing group of people!"
"I have been a Dr. Son fan for about 5 years. I have had a lot of dental work in my life and so I feel like I’m a bit of a Dental Expert. Dr. Son is the best. I like the way he explains things to me so that I really understand “why.” His office is very professional and yet everyone there is so friendly and helpful, I always feel like I’m visiting my friends. It’s not the kind of office where you sign in and take a seat. They know me when I walk in and they really make me feel like I’m the only one there, lots of personal attention. I’ve sent my family and some of my friends to his office and they are fans as well."
"They score 5 stars for everything: professionalism, atmosphere, quality of service, customer service, and just darn willingness to help.
First, the important stuff. Dr. Son personally attended to me, unlike other dentists who pawn you off on their multitude of staff and only stare at your x-rays for 5 minutes. He had 3 or so other patients going on and as far as I could tell, he was spending a lot of time on all of them!
The staff were all amazing. They were welcoming but not insincerely so, friendly and inquisitive, but not pushy, and professional and efficient. I did not wait at all and was promptly attended to as soon as I finished paperwork. I waited for Dr. Son for at the most, 5 minutes.
I want to also give their very nice office manager an additional bonus. I filled out my paperwork in a separate side room where afterwards she asked some standard first-visit questions; I thought that was a very nice touch to put patients who need to fill out paperwork and answer questions in a separate room, rather than across the counter as most doctor's offices do. Not that I mind that, I just think this was a very nice and classy touch. It was that extra something that made me feel I was not just another patient swinging through the door.
My consult, which was about growing jaw pain due to grinding, was lengthy and informative. Dr. Son went out of his way to explain to me the biomechanical reasons behind my pain and the methods of treating it. They even handled the billing part of it magnificently. Their office, which is out-of-network for me, was more than happy to call my insurance to check for me if the cost would be higher, lower, or the same in or out of network. (I would like to add that being paranoid and suspicious by nature I furtively called my insurance company to ask the same questions. The answers concurred perfectly).
Lastly, and this may be a personal thing, I love the fact that I went through an entire visit without having 50 million things pawned on me. "Yes, I know my teeth are crooked no I don't want Invisalign." or "Yes, I know my teeth are a little on the yellow side, no I'm not interested in brightening."
Overall, if you're looking for an Irvine dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Son and staff. I'm just sad they are out of network so I may not be able to continue with them (damn you American health care system!) but based on this amazing 1st visit, if my insurance ever changes, I'm there."
"I went to Dr. Son as a new patient. I was kind of worried because I had not been to the Dentist in quite some time. I knew that I needed a dental cleaning in addition to some rather extensive dental treatment. Dr. Son went over all of my options for treatment with me. He was very thorough. Dava was so helpful and supportive. Dava took time to make sure that all of my concerns and questions were answered by the Dr. and my Hygienist. I had some gum issues due to the fact that I had not had my teeth cleaned in over 2 years. Dr. Son and his team started in on my treatment right away, restoring my gums to a healthy condition. Dava assisted me in applying for CareCredit, a program that is interest free upto 12 months. This is great because I can divide my costs in to 12 monthly payments and not have to postpone my necessary dental treatment. I found Dr. Son and his team to be caring, warm and friendly. Most of all they are a group of professionals committed to making a difference. I will recommend Dr. Son to everyone I know."
"What an amazing experience! Best exam and cleaning I have ever had. Every detailed and everything was explained as they went. The entire staff was friendly and said Hi, and made my experience comfortable! Totally different from any other office!"
"Even getting a cavity filled was painless! Dr. Son, in my opinion, is the most up-to-date and best dentist I have ever visited!"
