  • My family and friends have been coming here for years, I would challenge you to find a more quality Dentist, not only a friendly office but a young Dentist with old school ethics, it's not about chair time and money, His margins on restorations are true and closed, only the best dental gold is used.

  • Dr. Eckl and his staff are all so friendly! It's a great office for small children, they make them (and the terrified adult) feel so comfortable. Dr. Eckl himself is as friendly as they come, he's very honest and thorough which is very appreciated! If you're in San Clemente and looking for a amazing dental office, this is definitely your place 🙂 Total package!

  • THE BEST DENTIST AND STAFF BY FAR!!!!!!!!! My experience with dentists over the years has made me never want to go back. I always have felt like I was dealing with salesmen and have been very taken advantage of in the past. Dr. Eckl is very conservative, yet honest. He explained everything very well and with such patience. It made me feel very comfortable with my dental care. The staff is always friendly and extremely helpful. I highly recommend this office and I am so thankful to have found such a great Dr. for my family. My 2 year old keeps asking when he can go back!
