Dental Group of Orange County
After contacting the Dental Group of Orange County and speaking with Ericka I booked and appointment and was originally seen by Dr. Quyhn for my implant consult. The staff was super friendly and gave me the highest level of service. X-rays were digital, so they were instant and very clear. After going over the options for services it was decided we would move forward with the implant. Ericka explained that she would contact my insurance company for possible extended benefits coverage and recommended that I go get a CT Scan so that the procedure could be done accurately. I agreed and had the CT performed at an outside lab that I was familiar with. The lab happened to also be the one that they recommended, so that was comforting. After the results of the CT were received Ericka and her team had a bit of a communication issue, but eventually it was resolved. I have to state that even though we had a break down in communication, Ericka went above and beyond to make things right. So much to the point where her sincerity convinced me this was the right dental provider for me and my family. Her generosity and ownership of the issue was truly outstanding. Upon arriving to begin my implant procedure I was extremely nervous. Other dentists had me worried about the procedure, sounds and process of drilling into my jaw, but Dr. Dang was very confident and reassuring. He reviewed my CT scans and determined that I was a specialized case because of the thin jaw bone where the extraction would be made. He gave me full disclosure and informed me that there was the potential for breakage of the inner jaw bone and what would need to be done if that happened. He also stated that he would be extremely cautious and slow so that he could do the best possible to prevent that from happening. The tooth to be extracted had a root canal more than 10 years prior so his fears of breakage upon removal were accurate. To his credit, he walked me and Dr. Quyhn through every step of the procedure prior to and during the process. His verbal narration assured me I was in good hands. With that trust in place he was able to extract my broken tooth in one piece with a slow steady removal. This prevented further damage and he was able to begin the implant after the inspection of the empty socket proved to be capable of accepting the implant. He cleaned the socket thoroughly and began the drilling process. In my mind I expected a high speed painful drill considering I was under a very low dose of local anesthetic. I was completely wrong. The low speed drilling feel unusually, but it was free of any pain. After a few drills and x-rays he determined the socket was properly prepared for the bone graft and implant. He completed the process, installed the healing cap and sutured the area. The procedure offered up No Pain ! All I felt after was pressure and the Ibuprofen was able to alleviate the swelling which was causing the discomfort. I am absolutely ecstatic and I am looking forward to finishing the process in a few months when the area heals. I'm even contemplating installing a second implant in an area where a tooth had been extracted over ten years ago. Two other dentists gave me the option, but not the creative expert solution that Dr. Dang offered that was minimal in treatment. I will now have my entire family visit this dental group and with this experience I will continue to refer my friend, family and anyone that is in need of dental work.

Mark O Bedard DDS
I have been going to Bedards Dentistry for about 30 years although Bedards was the first dentist I ever saw as a child I went to many in between and am so glad I went back first seeing father Bedard and now Mark Bedard. Maria has been cleaning my teeth all of this time. I would not want to go to any other dentist. I have been to one while they were on vacation once and the prices were much higher. Mark is an excellent dentist and is very gentle. If you can go to a dentist and almost fall asleep while they are doing a filling, you know you're going to someone who knows how to work with their patients and has a gentle approach. All of the staff at Bedards is excellent and has been with him many years which is a testiment to the kind of business they are. You will be treated fairly and such a friendly atmosphere.

Brookhurst Dental Group
I discovered Brookhurst Dental Group from a Groupon. I had regular dental insurance and a dedicated Dentist for years before losing my job, thus dental benefits. With a random Groupon I came across this Dental Group and am now a patient for life. It is completely out of the way as I live in Chino Hills and this office is located in GG, but the service and skill have made me committed to this dental group. The staff are amazing: Trina, Alfred, Brenda, Lysette - all committed to your satisfaction, comfort and making this critical aspect of ones health affordable. I have recommended many of my friends from South Orange County just because of the exceptional service and care!

The staff was very efficient and personable. The equipment was very modern. For once, my X-rays were digital, not on some weird film. There is plenty of Free Parking (Disregard the signs, they are only if you stay for more than 3 hours) Dr. Dang did a great and thorough job, I'm very pleased.

Vo Oanh Dr
She is a very skillful dentist. I did not feel any pain for teeth cleaning and refills.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
