Dr. Aguilar did an amazing job removing my wisdom teeth! It took all by twenty minutes to get numb and have them extracted! I could not have been happier with his bed side manner and amazing skills as a dentist!! Milena also made me feel so comfortable and not nervous at all! You are in the best of hands when receiving dental care from this practice!!

 5 starsMargaret BCustomer since 2004

Doctor Aguilar and all staff are very concerned about the patient, careful in their treatment, and professional in their service. I've been going to this clinic for at least a decade after working with other highly recommended dentists who were all disappointing. I'm lucky to have found American Clinic Dental.

My whole family is so happy with Dr. Aguilar and his team! Such a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Our children used to be so nervous of going to the dentist. Now they are so comfortable, that they tell all of their friends to come to this office. Thank you so much for our amazing smiles.

As always, Dr. Manny Aguilar, wife Deena and staff were very friendly and upbeat. my appointment was for a cleaning which was covered by my insurance. The wait time was less than five minutes and the cleaning was professional and thorough. I was in and out in about 20 minutes.

I highly recommend American Dental Clinic. 5 stars!

5 starsApril BCustomer since 2013

My experience at this new dentist (for me) has been very good. To start, Latrice is awesome - very friendly, knowledgeable and professional - she has always taken the time to answer my questions thoroughly. Dr. Aguilar has also been very kind, professional and considerate. He is very gentle while he works and exhibits great patience. The rest of the staff here is equally friendly and professional. A very good team and a very good experience.

Everyone at American Dental has made my visits comforting and at ease.

5 starsJames MCustomer since 2012

My first visit to any dentist since moving here and it was great! I was referred to the office by Danielle who is my daughter's gymnastics coach and coincidentally is a dental assistant there as well. The Doctor was very personable and even took the time to show me everything he was seeing by using a handheld camera. He even did the initial cleaning and had the hygienist who was also very nice as well. In all it was a very good experience!

5 starsAnonymousVerified customer

The american dental staff is wonderful and friendly, so it makes the environment to walk into great. Dr. Aguilar is very thorough with what he is doing. He explains everything well and gives you options along with the outcomes which is also wonderful. I definitely recommend this place to others.

4 starsMargaret BCustomer since 2004

As usual Doctor Aguilar and dental technicians, and office management staff (Nina) were excellent. Questions were asked and answered professionally, with care, concern, and patience. Doctor Aguilar's skill in dentistry is apparent...a friend referred him based upon my concern with another diagnosis(previous dentist was going to do a root canal on my tooth); Dr Aguilar saved it. He's the best.

5 starsAnonymousVerified customer

Not only are the staff friendly but they are very accomodating. when I moved away they were able to send my invisalign trays to my new address.

5 starsMary WCustomer since 2009

This is the nicest staff I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. Courteous, kind and caring. Both Dr Miller and Dr Aguilar were gentle and respectful of my needs. The Office staff seem to go the extra mile to take good care of me. Since I am a very anxious patient, I was comforted knowing I was in good hands. I truly appreciated the kindness.

5 starsDanielle MCustomer since 2009

Neenah has been an excellent help. Also, I have always received the best service here than any dental office I have visited.

It has been a year now that I have been going to Dr. Noel Aguilar for basic dental work.  This year, 2012, I decided to have Dr. Aguilar worked on my upper front teeth for a complete change not only for aesthetic reasons but more for comfort and the ability to eat and chew my food better.  I have been wanting to bite an apple for a long while.  Not only do I looked great now for the perfect job the whole staff has done but my self esteem shot up immediately like a rocket for the results they promised to deliver.  DO IT NOW!!  For all of you who have been wanting to have a perfect smile, it will change your life.  These procedures are more than a wardrobe change but a gift from GOD for a very skillful dentist who share his talent to his patients.  Thanks to Mrs. Aguilar and the staff, my visits were all worthwhile.

I'm surprised to see a few bad reviews here. I find Dr. Aguilar and his staff to be very professional. I have going there for about 5 years. I am extremely satisfied with their service. Thanks guys.





As a mother of three it is so hard for me to provide extra money to treat my dental needs.... for so long I've been feeling so insecure about my teeth.. I have this over bite that every time i look at myself in the mirror... i dont see my self pretty enough... I can still remember when i was little girl. till now I will always get teast about my teeth... i will get called rabbit teeth, etc.. and even someone  close to my heart had called me buck teeth, or rabbit tooth... or if only have straight teeth i can close my lip .... It hurts me inside but i dont really show it off.. I can still remember before coming to america my mom took me to the dentist and tried to get my front tooth pull out. But i got away.... but inspite of my condition i've always try to take care of my teeth... until one day Dr. Emmanuel Aguilar mentioned about considering me getting braces... i was somewhat  relucktant to do it becfause it cost so much... But Mrs. Aguillar had work with me on how i can pay them.... And how I will look after getting my braces.... Finally i've decided to get it....YYYEEEYYYYY.... Reason is when i was in the philippines everytime i get a toothache my dentist will pull out my tooth... so I got 3 missing tooth ... 3 moollers are now gone so i got gap in between  my teeth... Dr. Emmanuel Aguillar took couple of x-ray and had showed me... so over time my tooth are now laying forward.. and he said if i dont take care of this i will loose my teeth... and i dont want that to happen.... I got them Aug. 4th 2011.  I'm now 35 years old... so by the time i'm done with this i'll be close to 38 years of age... To tell you frankly... I get more compliments about my braces... it boost up my confident and i've notice i smile more... And also during the procedure Dr. Emmanuel Aguillar and the staff are so nice to me... Made me feel more relaxed and i know i'm in a good hands... thank you guys... till next visit again i am looking forward on seing you all ... God Bless

I've been going to American Dental Clinic for the past five years.  Dr. Emmanuel Aguilar did an excellent job replacing all my crowns.  The clinic uses state-of the-art equipment and the entire staff are friendly and professional.  They're always accommodating especially when I had no dental insurance.


I drove all the way from Huntington Beach to see Dr. Aguilar about my tooth. I had a root canal elsewhere years ago, and apparently I got an infection beneath the root canal, which caused major swelling and excruciating pain (I wasn't eating or sleeping for two days because it hurt too much). Dr. Aguilar explained to me what was going on and what needed to be done to alleviate the pain and to release the infection/swelling that was building up way deep in my gums.
In any case, I have nothing but praises for Dr. Aguilar. He has light and careful hands and knew exactly what was to be done. His staff were all friendly and helpful as well, which is always a plus when you're already writhing in pain. I would definitely recommend Dr. Aguilar to family and friends.


My experience with Dr. E. Aguilar was phenomenal he explained the necessary procedures needed to be done his staffs are compassionate and professional.  He has such a gentle way of extracting my tooth that broke off almost level to my gum line. At the same time I have a partial denture that is very old and needed to be replaced. I have been wearing partial denture for a while surely I have never experienced such dental precision; one time measurement, one time fitting.  He gave me a brand new smile and restored my self confidence. Thank you so much...
