I don't have a negative thought about Dr. Dapper. He is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. I assure I have been to many. Dr. Dapper is kind & sincere. He explains what and why he is doing a procedure a certain way and will always answer my questions and calm my fears. I've been a patient for 10 years and drive on the 5 south about 130 miles round trip for my appointments. He's that good! Great dentist, great staff, happy patient!

Dr. Dapper always does an excellent job.... He was our dentist in the 1990s, and when we moved to another state, we missed his great service and expertise. Now that we are back in SoCal, we’re so happy to be able to Have him as our dentist once again. His staff is friendly and professional.… Thanks to Everyone.

See my review of 8/2. Dr Dapper & staff are still the best! I had a cracked veneer that had to be repaired. He put it on in 1997 & they usually last about 10 yrs -- so this one was 20 yrs old! Good lifetime for a veneer!

How many people can say I am happy to see my dentist?! I am one of them and this is because Dr Dapper makes always time to listen to me and help me to have the best care I expect. My dental condition is complicated and every time an emergency occurs he was there for me. He brings together high knowledge in field of dentistry and a calm, kind personality. I am fortunate to be his patient.
