Patient Testimonials - Charles“The treatment was easy, fast and effective, and there was no pain at all.”

“I came to Saddleback Dentistry because my teeth were crowded and crooked. I found everyone to be kind and warm-hearted, and they always have a smile on their face. The doctors are so nice and helpful, and they really listen to you. The dentist was fast and I was amazed by how quickly I could see my teeth getting straighter. I am so glad I made the choice to get braces. It boosted my self-confidence and self-esteem. The treatment was easy, fast and effective, and there was no pain at all. I have so much more self-confidence now!”

Patient Testimonials - Monika“The doctor was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and committed to giving the best treatment.”

“A friend referred me to Saddleback Dentistry when I had a dental emergency, a broken bridge. Right from the first phone call I knew I had found the right place. The front office staff were extremely friendly and very helpful. Within an hour of calling, I was at the office being seen by Dr. Conkle. He explained what needed to be done in a very concise and informative way. Because of the information I received, I was able to immediately make up my mind as to the treatment I wanted.

“The doctor was very professional, knowledgeable, friendly and committed to giving the best treatment. From the first implants, to the temporary dentures, healing and new dentures, it was a journey with the best possible ending—receiving my permanent dentures and being able to eat whatever solid foods I wanted to eat. Thanks to my treatment, I now have the ability to smile with confidence. I wholeheartedly recommend Saddleback Dentistry. The staff and the doctors are the best. Thank you, Dr. Conkle, for giving me my smile back!”

Patient Testimonials - Renee“I now have a healthy mouth and beautiful smile.”

“I started coming to Dr. Garcia at Saddleback Dentistry 25 years ago. I like the staff and Dr. Garcia so much that even though I moved to Los Angeles many years ago, I continue to drive back to Orange County for all my dental work.

“Dr. Garcia is very detailed and the staff are warm and friendly. I always feel welcome here. I have always been more than happy with all the work I’ve received, including cleanings, root canals, crowns and the beautiful veneers Dr. Garcia did for me.

Patient Testimonials - Ivette“The dentist was very friendly and gentle …”

I started coming to Saddleback Dentistry two years ago. I had a gap between my two front teeth, which I disliked, and decided to get a consultation. The doctor went over all my options and explained everything thoroughly. I decided to get Invisalign to correct my smile. The whole process from beginning to end was very fast, about five months. The dentist was very friendly and gentle when it came to his dental work. I am so happy with the results and very thankful to the doctor and his friendly staff. Now I have a beautiful, straight smile.”

— Ivette, Invisalign

 

Patient Testimonials - Julie“I could not be more thrilled with the results.”

“After a lifetime of dreading going to the dentist, I’m so thrilled to have found Saddleback Dentistry. After some poor dental work by another dentist, I had a missing tooth, and my cousin and her husband insisted that I try Dr. Garcia. I noted immediately how friendly and attentive all of the office staff were. Dr. Garcia was very friendly and took the time to answer all of my questions, explain the procedures in detail, and address all my concerns. He also uses modern technology.

“I am so happy with the care I received and could not be more thrilled with the results. Saddleback Dentistry is the whole package—great service, great expertise and great results. From the start until the end, from the front office staff to the expertise of the dentist to the finished product, the entire experience was outstanding. I found the prices to be extremely reasonable for such a high quality of service. I am very grateful. Now my smile is bigger and I have more confidence! It was truly the best dental experience I have ever had.”

— Julie, Dental Implant

 

Patient Testimonials - Debra“I’m extremely satisfied with all the work I have had done …”

All-on-4 patient“I can smile without covering my mouth, and I get constant compliments on my smile.”

“I went to several doctors to decide where to go. Dr. Conkle is the most informative, took the time to answer all my questions and made me feel comfortable. I was still a little leery, but after each appointment I was more and more sure that I had made the right choice. His staff was also amazing throughout the whole process.

“I am 100% satisfied with the results. Absolutely NO complaints throughout this procedure. I feel like a whole new person with my new smile! It has given me a self-esteem boost. I can smile without covering my mouth, and I get constant compliments on my smile. I couldn’t thank the office enough!”

— Daniel Soto, All-on-4® New Teeth in One Day

 

All-on-4 patient“My new teeth look awesome, and I feel like I should not have waited so long to have the procedure done.”

“First of all, I am a ‘believer’, so I prayed about this for a long time. I’ve had partials in my mouth since I was starting high school, and finally they led to me having All-on-4. The treatment has been absolutely great. From the first consultation, the office has bent over backwards to accommodate me.

“I came in on a Friday, had my upper teeth all pulled and 4 implant posts put in. The procedure didn’t take long, and I got the pain medication which I didn’t use at all. Dr. Conkle called me at 9:15pm that night to check how I was doing and check on my pain. I told him I had no pain.

“The staff has treated me like I’ve known them all my life. I can feel the compassion and love. My new teeth look awesome, and I feel like I should not have waited so long to have the procedure done. I am not embarrassed to smile, and I’ve gained my confidence back.”

— Robert, All-on-4® New Teeth in One Day

 

Dental implant patient“I am able to smile and eat comfortably, when I couldn’t before.”

“Dr. Garcia is extremely friendly and professional. He is more than willing to take the time to answer any and all questions. The procedure was relatively painless and the results are better than expected. I am able to smile and eat comfortably, when I couldn’t before. I highly recommend implants over dentures.”

— Wayne, Dental Implants

 

Implant patient“I can’t recommend Dr. Conkle highly enough. He gets my vote and I will be indebted to him.”

“I respected and admired Dr. Ryan Conkle from the moment I met him. His formal and outstanding dental surgery training at USC coupled with his on-going professional skill enhancing training imbued me with a deep sense of trust and confidence. My dental repair which started with a “wobbly” root canal escalated with a serious and substantiated “worse-case” scenario that major repair on all but a handful of my teeth was in order. As a retiree, working part-time and slightly without dental insurance this seemed an almost insurmountable barrier.

“Dr. Conkle suggested I get a cost-analysis done by his financial advisor, and I did so. I learned that I could secure an interest free line of credit from CareCredit that would cover the cost of “repair” or implants to support both top and bottom. It was a long year but Dr. Conkle supported me every step of the way. He made phone calls after each major procedure to check on my well-being, worked happily around my work schedule. Never once did I have to go “without teeth” or miss a day or hour of work because of the procedures required.

“I was so pleased with the first stage of my treatment that I opted to do a final “permanent” implant stage. I can’t recommend Dr. Conkle highly enough. He gets my vote and I will be indebted to him. Go USC trained dentists!”

— Janice, Dental Implants

Dental implant patient“The doctor is extremely caring, patient and skillful.”

“I first heard about Saddleback Dentistry from a friend. My teeth were in very bad condition at the time.

— Daisy, Dental Implants

 

“I never would’ve dreamed my teeth could look this good.”

“When I first came to Saddleback Dentistry, I hadn’t been to a dentist in 30 years. I was very embarrassed about my smile, as I had lost one front tooth in an accident and twisted the other front tooth. I had very traumatic dental experiences from the age of four, so I was very hesitant and scared to see a dentist until I was 52.

“The staff at Saddleback were very professional and went above and beyond with helping me. They were all like family, constantly reassuring me along the way. The doctor explained every step of my treatment so that it was 100% clear to me.

“I’m not afraid anymore. My experiences with Saddleback Dentistry have changed my life. I never would’ve dreamed my teeth could look this good.”

— Patty

“They stay current on the latest industry procedures. Dr. Conkle is friendly and takes the time to explain the treatment. He’s honest with you and answers any questions. He even encouraged me to talk with other dentists before I decided—that sold me.

“I can smile now. I’m not afraid to have my picture taken, and I don’t worry anymore about what I eat. I can eat all kinds of foods now, even things I couldn’t eat for years.”

— David

“My dental implants came out perfect, just the right color. I have beautiful front teeth and a gorgeous smile at 78.”

“I came to Saddleback Dentistry in need of replacing implants in the front of my mouth. I found Dr. Garcia to be truly caring. He goes above and beyond and is very accommodating.

They let you know exactly what they’re going to do and what to expect, explaining everything before the procedure so you’re never surprised.
