Not a ton of time on my hands, so here goes- my veneer story.I've been wanting veneers for many years. I had small teeth, some gaps, and a lot of gum, but never took the leap. My coworker got veneers and they looked amazing! They were so amazing, I decided I should also take the leap and get mine. I went to my friend's dentist and can you say sticker shock It would have costed the s..."

"Dr. Choi is fantastic! I came from a dental office where you had to make appointments months in advance. However, Dr. Choi's friendly staff was able to fit me in right away. Dr. Choi is extremely knowledgeable, he listened to what I wanted, and he made me feel comfortable about the upcoming procedures. I am so glad I found this office. I highly recommend it!"

"The staff at Dr. Choi's office are very polite, helpful, and professional. The hygienist was very knowledgeable and informative. I was made to feel very comfortable. They even asked if I liked the background music. How considerate is that?"

"My experience with Dr. Choi and everyone that works at Smile By Design in Irvine was absolutely excellent. Dr. Choi and his assistants took the time to carefully explain exactly what each stage of my dental implant surgery entailed, and I couldn't possibly be happier with the results. 10/10 Thank you so much!"

I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist!"

The office is clean and super high-tech! I love the fact that you can get all your dental needs done in one day. They are accommodating to their patients needs.  Thanks again for all your help Dr and team!!! Keep up the great work!"

"I have had many wonderful experiences from Dr. Choi's office, and that is a miracle in itself since I dread all dental work. I typically have to take a sedative to just get a filling. I recommend his office for anything from cleaning to the major stuff. I have sent my husband and a couple coworkers here and they too were really pleased. His office is immaculate, his staff is professional and they all have amazing energy that makes typically crappy dentist visits tolerable.I found his office online when searching for a specialist to correct my jaw pain. In the last year he has replaced a pre..."

"I have been seeing Dr. Choi now for close to a year, and I’m at the end of a long and arduous full mouth restoration. I interviewed several Dentist/Prosthodontists to do the work, and after much research and investigation on the subject of orthodontia, crowns, and veneers, I finally settled on Dr. Choi. It was quite a leap of faith because I literally knew nothing about him prior to meeting him other than from reading his reviews, which I always take with a grain of salt. My first impression of him was that he was friendly, professional and seemed well educated in his field. His office w..."

"I have received excellent dental work from Dr. Choi. He is a great listener which enables him to serve me well. In addition to the BIG dental work, crowns, etc. the office does general dentistry: cleaning, check-ups, fillings, etc. It's amazing, he manufactures crowns right in his office - NO MORE TEMPORARY CROWNS!!! I'm very busy so this saves me so much time. I recommend Dr. Choi completely."
More
"I’m so grateful that my co-worker recommended me to Dr. Choi. I went in for a second opinion on a broken tooth. He is a Prosthodontist who is an expert in the restoration and replacement of teeth. He gave me three different options for restoring my tooth. Everything was explained to me and they discussed pros and cons for each option. A lot of dentists are very pushy but Dr. Choi explained all possible options and let me decide what I wanted to do. I was told that they can start the treatment right away and my crown will be ready within 2 hours! No more temporary and weird tasting i..."

"I recently have had several dental procedures done here including implant, implant removal and replacement (prom a prior sub-standard dental office) as well as the regular cleaning and "light duty" work. I have had a wonderful experience with each visit. Dr. Choi has state of the art equipment and skills along with an immaculate office environment and very friendly staff. I struggle through getting any dental work done and they have me feeling at ease every time. I would highly recommend this office for anything from the regular checkup to major dental procedures!!"

"It was a pleasure meeting Dr. Choi and his staff. They are nice and professional. Dr. Choi is an incredible dentist who did my implant in about 30 minutes. What else can you say about a dentist who has performed over 10,000 implant cases? He is also a very personable and generous person. I went for my implant consultation back in July of 2015. His staff took a full mouth Xray and bite registration. Afterwards, Dr. Choi discussed with me all of the necessary procedures that I need. He was very patient in answering and addressing all of my questions and concerns. Although it was not ..."

"Gotta admit I was a freak about coming in.  I have been missing lower tooth and have been told by several dentists I need tissue graph, bone graph and implants.  I'd been avoiding it for years but at this point had no other alternatives.  I was a nervous wreck and Dr. Choi and his crew, always calm and patient to all my questions.  I had the surgery done yesterday and barely feel any pain today!!!!  It was awesome!Why was I such and chicken and why did I wait so long?We definitely recommend Smile by Design"

All of the staff members are also very friendly and polite, the office atmosphere is relaxing, and all of the equipment is state-of-the-art. I had many problems with my teeth, so I tri..."

"Dr. Choi is an amazing dentist. I've always dreaded going into an appointment fearing I'd come out with my gums all beat up from the cleanings and such but Dr. Choi is gentle and very talented in his approach. His friendly demeanor is also a great quality about him that gives me the confidence to go back. Overall his entire team is easy to approach and talk to and that's a great addition to have when all you want to do is cancel with the dentist! :) they make is easy to go in and no longer dread the appointments!"

"After just finishing invislign, I noticed how years of grinding led to some damaged and uneven teeth. After looking through Yelp and reading all the fantastic reviews, I called Dr. Choi's office and set up an appointment for bonding. Needless to say, it was a very pleasant experience. The entire staff is extremely friendly, helpful, and supportive. I had the pleasure of meeting Angela, who took some x-rays and made me feel like I had been going there for years. Dr. Choi gave honest, friendly, and proficient service; I am pleased with the results and had a great experience."

"Until I met Dr. Choi, my dental appointments were always consumed with fear and anxiety. For the first time in my life, I have met a dentist who makes me feel comfortable. For several months now I have been in and out of Dr. Choi's office for a variety of dental work; invisalign, veneers, on-lays/in-lays and cleaning.  All of my procedures were painless and surprisingly there was no recovery process (not even sore the next day).  Moreover, his friendly staff is excellent to work with, as they are constantly accommodating my intense travel schedule. Quite honestly I rarely ever write reviews..."

"My family has been seeing Dr. Choi for over a year now. I would characterize his approach as very gentle and careful. He looks out for his patient's best interests in their dental health while not promoting the most radical, expensive treatment.  Dr. Choi goes above and beyond to minimize pain and discomfort which is very important for me, I'm so scared of pain! He has even called us later in the day after a procedure to check on pain levels. His hygenist, Nina, is excellent, thorough and a breath of fresh air. His front office staff, Mary and Michelle, are always cheerful and flexible when..."

"UPDATE: After paying for way too much for lots of dental work, only to have the same teeth pulled in the end, I had all but given up on area dentists (Irvine/Tustin), so much so I could not bring myself to see another until I could stand the pain no longer. I searched and even set a couple of appointments but was very uneasy, primarily with strong (not suggestive) upselling/pushy front end folks, so the appointments were canceled. I'm not sure why I hadn't found Smile by Design during other Internet searches, but this time I had a sense of ease even before the appointment was made! During m..."

Ill recommend this office to anyone and everyone looking for a quality dentist. Thanks so much !!"

"I waited until my dentil implants were completely done before doing my review on Yelp. I had a more complex implant situation, with the need to build up my jaw bone during the process. Dr. Choi spent a great deal of time studying the x-rays and my mouth.  He asked a lot of questions as to what I wanted and expected. With each office visit I gained more confidence in his expertise. And all through the process he was willing to redo anything if it wasn't exactly perfect for him or me.  I even brought my sister in when the final work was to be done and Dr. Choi was happy to have another opinio..."

"I feel compelled to write this review since the results of my veneers are amazing. My veneers look so natural and match my teeth perfectly. No one has been able to tell that my two front teeth are veneers. They actually look better then my natural teeth. The reason why I had to get veneers was due to my front tooth chipping, and this chip was not a small one either, but it was about 1/3 of my tooth!! I was devastated, and it was embarrassing when I had to speak to anyone, which lead to me speaking less and covering my month when I spoke. Even though it was around one week it felt like forev..."
