There are not enough positive words, that I can adequately express what an amazing experience I have had with Dr. Makhoul and his art for dentistry. The gentleness, the kindness, the caring are all adjectives that go unsaid. It is the true gift that he has and he strives for to make his work perfect. He makes sure that the foundation; which is the gum tissue and bone support, are completely sound and healthy. When he does a crown; his margins of how that crown fits, is so 100% perfect. That "perfect" fit is so important in making and keeping a tooth for life. He uses only THE best equipment and materials, which is also so very important. He will take a film of that crown after it is seated, and he will show you how perfect that crown fits. The quality and the art of dentistry is truly a gift. Every dentist is intelligent and gifted. Not all dentist are gifted with "having the hands." Let me tell you how important that is! I have worked in the dental industry myself, for 30 years.

Legitimately Yolie is the BEST. Like, nothing beats the best. She's sooooo cool, pretty, smart, awesome, and I love her so much. She gets the job done! I first moved to Mission Viejo as a 22-year-old, and when I moved up closer to Tustin, I stayed loyal to this dentist because Yolie is THE BEST. I'm always so clean and refreshed after she cleans my teeth. I go home happy after I see her!

Had a follow up meeting this afternoon to get an impression for a “flipper” to replace an extracted tooth. Staff was ready for me at front desk and prepped me right away . Dr Makhoul came in took measurements and took the time to explain the procedure, how it works and what to expect after insertion on next visit.

no need to fear I had a huge cavity to be filled and we were hoping to save the tooth and avoid a root canal. After lots of work and painless drilling he was able to save my tooth and with no paid. They even have a device to stop your jaw from cramping as it was a tooth in the rear. Dr. Makhoul is sympathetic and patient as are all his staff. I highly recommend them. Yolie is their dental hygienist and she is the absolutely best.

I had today a deep cleaning with laser for my gingivitis I know it is not painless care because the other dental office where I was before and do it traumatized me so much that I refused to see him again. this dentist who treated me in the makhoul dental office, was very courteous, professional, explaining to me in detail what she was going to do. I did not feel anything during the anesthesia and during the treatment. I left this dental office reassured, happy, not at all stressed and relieved to have finally found a good dental office, which is difficult to find these days.i recommend this dental office ,all the staff are nice, polite, professional and courteous

For some people the dentist is an awful experience. Whenever I have to go in for a cleaning, filling or anything else, I never feel anything close to this. From a welcoming and tentative front staff, to awesome knowledge hygienists and assistants, you know that every aspect of the team is top notch all the way to Dr. Makhoul himself. Best dentist office I have ever visited. No plan to ever change. They always get you in super quick too!!

Wonderful and Highly Professional Dentistry I've been going to Dr. Makhoul for about 7 years now. Although nobody likes going to the dentist, he and his staff have always made the visits as pleasant as possible. In my most recent visit, Dr. Makhoul placed two crowns on implants. The operation went smoothly as expected, and the crowns fit perfectly; they feel like my own teeth. He and his staff are highly professional and very warm and friendly.

I've been going here for about 10 years now. Dr. Makhoul is awesome and so is his staff. They whipped my dental situation into shape patiently and pain free. (I need alot of attention and they never disapoint) Even with the current pandemic, which closed their office for a bit, Dr. Makhoul has reopened with newly purchased equipment and has taken extra steps to protect both his patients and staff. I'd also like to make a special "shout out" to Yolanda for making my regular cleanings hassle free, much better than they used to be.
