I'm thrilled with how fun visiting a dentist can be for my 1 and 3 year olds. But most of all, Dr. Chand encouraged my daughter to stop sucking her thumb. It was like magic. I love them. Jeanne Walker, San Juan Capistrano

Thank you so much Dr. Lee and Martha for your kindness and gentleness with my two children Carter and Kasey. They look forward to coming to the dentist and it is always a positive experience for them. Thank you all for taking the time to explain what is happening to put the children at ease. We could not do it without all of your help! Kim, Mission Viejo

Dr. Wu is a very sensitive, caring and technically excellent orthodontist. My 8 year old has a strong gag reflex and Dr. Wu was able to relax and distract her many times throughout the process. The front office staff is friendly and flexible as well. We were very happy with the first phase of her orthodontic treatment. Shelley Hollander, Newport Coast

My two children had a very pleasant first visit. We were all treated with much kindness from a very friendly staff. Dr. Chand spent time explaining procedures to my children and to us. We are happy we found you! Kirstie Halka, Aliso Viejo

My children love coming to Dr. Lee's office. Everyone is so helpful, happy and kind. It is a great experience for kids - no fear of dentists here! Julie, Laguna Beach

We really like this office and the staff is the very best. :) keep up the good work! Sandra Valdivia, Mission Viejo

Dr. Wu & staff are the best in the business. Office staff is on the ball, working as a team to make the process smooth. Kyle Turner, Aliso Viejo

Both my boys (ages 2&4) LOVE Dr. Lani. She is sweet and supportive and talks to my kids in a way they understand and respect. My 4 year old likes her so much, he's asked if she can be his "regular" doctor, too! Tracy Bidsi, Huntington Beach

Going to the dentist is never exactly "fun" but this is a sunny, upbeat office with a friendly staff. Thanks for education and care with a smile. Jayne Lewis, Irvine

I am so grateful for finding you all! I have been to three different dentists with my kids & none of them have given me the feel you all did. The experience & warm welcome I received stepping through the front door was enough for me. Topping it off was my 4-year-old saying "Mama, I like the dentist!" when we got into the car. That's enough to "sell" any mom on a dentist for her kids! Vidette Vanderweide, Laguna Niguel

We definitely chose the right dentist! My daughter is five & unfortunately she had some major work done. The doctors & staff were so good to her she couldn't wait to go back. She was even chanting "Dentist, Dentist" on the way to a dentist appt. They were very informative. I was and am very happy with Capistrano Children's Dentistry. Anika Schuda, San Clemente

I think Ethan couldn't have gotten a better experience with his orthodontic treatment than he did with Dr. Wu. Thank you for providing orthodontic treatment at your office (along with general dentistry). Sylvia Carson, Lake Forest

Our experience with Dr. Wu and the staff has been wonderful! They are always professional, caring, and quite knowledgeable in their orthodontic care. My daughter, Yasamin, was always put at ease from the beggining of getting her braces to the end. We feel a part of the family when coming here. Thank you for a great experience.Ellie Marvasti, Trabuco Canyon

We absolutely love the friendliness of this office. We tried several dentists for our 4 and 7 year old boys but were never really satisfied. We love that it is never a long wait and that our appointment times are so prompt here. We moved to San Juan Capistrano but don't mind the drive and will continue to stay with this office. Dr. Lee is great! My boys love it here. Adriane, San Juan Capistrano

This office is outstanding! We love Dr. Lee and Dr. Chand. The office is clean and the kids actually get excited to come to the dentist. You all do a wonderful job and I wouldn't make a change. Thank you!Helen Baxter, Irvine

Love your office! Everyone from front reception to the Dentist to the decor of office is amazing.Shally Entezam, San Clemente

Dr. Lani Chang was really great with Stephanie. She made her feel very comfortable and explained the procedure to her. It was a great experience. She was kind and friendly. Very professional.Gina Frechette, Irvine

My one and a half year old had a great first visit! He went straight to the toys in the waiting room, which was a great way for him to feel at ease while waiting. Once inside the exam room, it was bright and colorful with Mickey Mouse playing. When he felt a little uneasy when the dentist inspected his teeth, everyone was so accommodating-gave him a balloon and a toothbrush to hold. The dentist, Dr. Chand, was very patient, answered all of my questions and offered great advice! Brandi Casteel, Laguna Niguel

We began our relationship with the exceptional pediatric dentists at ICD in 1999. The care my 2 children have received has been nothing short of exceptional. Though we have since moved to South Orange County, our first and only choice for pediatric dential care is Dr. Lee and her dedicated staff. Not even recent changes in our dental insurance, specifically ICD not being preferred provider , could cause us to seek a different dentist. Dr Lee and her staff are the "gold standard" in pediatric dental care....Exceptional dental care, patient & loving dentist & staff...these are all hallmarks of ICD.Elizabeth Tambini, Foothill Ranch
