Today I had an emergency appointment because one of my teeth broke. It turned out I needed a crown. Because they have the latest equipment, they were able to treat the tooth, make a crown and have me back to normal on the same day. Thank you so much!

Today was my first visit at Carmel Mountain. I had a great experience, even for it being my first visit. The staff was friendly and professional and so was the orthodontist I spoke with. I've had a few consultations with other orthodontists but have continued to search for the right orthodontist for me. I was very pleased with my first impression of Carmel Mountain and I went ahead and made my first appointment for my orthodontics treatment with them. I'm excited to get started! I would definitely recommend them to anyone else looking to perfect their smile!

Dr. Lee is great and all of his staff!!  Me and my family have been patience there before my youngest was born ... that's more than 8 years!
They are always kind and never had to wait for more than 15 minutes ... most of the times is less than 5.
Not only they have good costumer service but they are very good in everything they do. I specially love Lauren when I have to go for cleaning but all his staff are great.
I highly recommend them

Very professional and easy to work with. Carmel Mountain Dental Care is very good at being able to work around my school schedule. They have fun give aways, and my teeth have never looked better. I see Dr. Lee but I have seen other doctors on occasion and they have all been great. The appointments also never take too long (cleaning and exam in under 45 minutes), and they let you pick what you want to watch on Netflix.

I usually hate going to the dentist because its soooo scary :( HOWEVER, after going to Carmel Mt Dental Care, my fears and worries have gone away, thanks to the wonderful Dr. lee and Dr. Moeckel. They have been so great and pleasant to talk with about the procedures that need to be done and made filling my cavities a pleasant experience. The entire staff including the front desk are so friendly too! The dental hygienist, Mandy, is the bestest person ever!!! She is the definition of amazing.

I really appreciated all of the personalized touches (my name on the whiteboard, blanket, sunglasses, chapstick, brief questionnaire of what you expect from your appointment to make it more personalized,) and was happy that they offer a discount annual membership plan to uninsured patients.

I'm very excited to come back here! Definitely has my stamp of approval.

Such an exceptional Service by Juliette for my first appointment. Very entertaining, energetic and professional. I never got bored while my teeth are being examined and cleaned. Dr Moeckel is so professional and detailed as well. She lets me know the whole plan from start to finish. They aim to give the best of their service and in the end it's beyond satisfaction. The environment is so clean, fresh, and wonderful. I would definitely recommend!

A great place to go. I recently switched my family over to this practice b/c it's closer to our home. The office is clean, the staff is very personable, and it's a very high tech office - you can watch TV/videos while you're teeth are being worked on!

These are amazing dentists who actually care and work hard to make you feel safe and comfortable. Dr. Lee helped me fix issues I had with work done by another dentist and I'm very appreciative of his care. Come here for work done on your teeth that make you not dread going to the dentist.

My hygienist Christine did an amazing, thorough job and not only that she was very nice to talk to. She was very genuine and kind and made me feel very welcomed. I was so use to my old hygienist, who would just hurt my teeth most of the time and I was never really sure if she was doing a good job, but Christine not only made my teeth feel very clean after, it was painless and relaxing!

Dental office is always clean.  I feel like it is pretty hi tech in comparison to other offices with some of the most up to date items out there.  I like the fact that you can watch a show or listen to your favorite station during your appointment & that they offer items to make you more comfortable.  They truly care about their patients!

I was referred to CMDC over a year ago by a friend who raveD about Dr. Lee and his entire staff. Like many people, I have always dreaded the dentist. Since becoming a patient at CMDC I no longer put off my cleaning appointments. In fact, I look forward to them. The office is beyond clean and inviting. The amenities offered are top notch. I love being able to watch an episode of Friends or The Office while getting my teeth cleaned. All of the equipment is state of the art which helps appointments go by quickly and efficiently. Their staff that handles insurance is knowledgeable and so very helpful at assisting me maximize my benefits. I love CMDC!

Dr. Saade has been so honest about the work I need done in my mouth. He's always so gentle and gets the job done in a timely manner. His assistant Mariana is so nice as well. I have always hated the dentist but these two have made my last few visits easy and comfortable.

Leaving a review for my husband since he just can't stop talking about how amazing the staff was! Lol We found Carmel Mt Dental on Yelp and scheduled an appointment for his deep cleaning. He HATES going to the dentist and always has bad experiences, so today I was surprised when he called me to thank me for scheduling his appointment for him! He says the staff were all extremely friendly! Carmel Mt Dental didn't try to overcharge him and didn't recommend he do work that didn't need to be done, like most dentists do. Refreshments were available and he left with a cute little parting gift! Will definitely recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing dental experience!

I have been a patient at CMDC for 3 years now. This place is truly a gem and I will not go anywhere else! I have seen multiple hygienists and two different dentists, they have all treated me with the best care, respect and great service. I have a lot of sensitivity, they keep that in mind and are gentle. They truly go above and beyond for their patients and I no longer dread the dentist! Thank you!

I decided that it was time to find a new dentist that was closer to our house. Immediately I turned to Yelp. I was impressed by the amazing reviews, so I had to check it out. This place is so wonderful! I was welcomed over the phone from my first phone call. That staff is so nice! This dentist is the most upscale and nicest dentist I have ever visited! I was constantly asked if I needed anything from water, to a blanket, and even chapstick! I got to watch Netflix during my appointment too. The welcome bag was such a nice touch. This dentist surpassed my expectations... the BEST customer service. Highly recommend!

Looking for a new dentist is hard to find... Don't be fooled by the exterior of this business. I must say the location isn't ideal but the service received, the location is the least of your worries. Many people like myself are not fans of the dentist..
Not in this case..You're instantly impressed with the DA, RDA and Dentist. They're amazing and make your treatment plan to set your needs. I definitely felt comfortable during my visit. All my questions and concerns were addressed. Thank you again for a complimentary whitening when checking in on Yelp!

One of the best dentists & hygienists I've ever been to!  Even the receptionists at the front desk were very nice (which seems to be rare these days).  The whole team is very understanding, kind, and responsive.
My husband (boyfriend at the time) didn't have dental insurance, and they had a great special going on for x-rays, cleaning, and exam which was very affordable.
I would highly recommend!  You can tell all of the staff take great pride in their work.  It's very much appreciated from a patient's point of view :)

My recent cleaning was fantastic and who says that!!!! I missed a few appointments so was less than thrilled when I finally schedule my appointment, and then was called to come in sooner if I wanted to (great cancellation waiting list). I had a semi-negative attitude and Lauren W did not fret. Her interactions with me were top-notch and I quickly shifted my view of being there. She took time to acquaint herself with me, told me everything that was happening, and worked with me when I was having trouble. It's been almost two weeks since my visit, and my teeth and gums and doing so much better with the treatment plan I left with. Thank you Lauren for making this a good experience. I am scheduling my kids with you and made an additional recommendation to someone else.
