    I can't recommend South Coast Dental highly enough. They've taken care of my family for quite a few years now, and I'd never consider going anywhere else. Dr Larin is an awesome dentist, and her staff always take good care of us. Do yourself a favor and check them out.

    Had amazing 1st visit in over 2 years to dentist. After many x-rays, only required a cleaning. Excellent staff and dentist. Looking forward to next appointment in 6 months! Very gentle and through in the exam and cleaning. Great place for family and friends. They take Delta Dental insurance so if you are a veteran please check them out.
