Dr. Watson has a fantastic staff of professionals. They are all caring, thoughtful and well trained. It is a friendly and comfortable environment. I always believe I am getting an honest assessment of my dental needs. Been going for years and am very fortunate to have found them. I'd give Leslie a plug but I don't want her to overbooked!! 🙂 Okay, she is awesome...

5 star rating Dr. Niven and Staff January 2016.What I discovered here.From Marta at reception to every single one of the staff, I have never seen a practice or business where every one of the team made such a positive impression on me. You comprise the most efficient and polished group of colleagues and professionals I have ever had the pleasure to be served by. While my care took months, and a team of Doctors coming in from outside the practice, all made made me feel like I was the only patient! This kind of a team is almost impossible to create.This fact speaks to the incredible talent and demeanor of one of your leaders. I have not had the pleasure to meet Dr. Watson--I feel sure that he is yet another Dentist here that walks on water. I understand the bosses surf, yes?The Navy had my husband stationed in Naples, Italy when it came time to update my dentistry and get my fourth set of 10 Crowns, upper front. The American Naval hospital housed a dental clinic with limited resources. Got my first set of crowns and pontic after two years of braces when I was 11, dealing with upper canines genetically missing. Prior to that I had minor oral surgery in 1950--the point is I have kind of been there and seen that in the dental medical practice. Since then, being a Navy family moving every two years to a different state or country the family received Dental care from a vast variety of practices.When my husband retired in 1987 we relocated to Laguna Beach. By then I was back in the workplace and a colleague recommended his dentist when I needed help for what became a root canal. What has this to do with you? I remained with that practice for 27 years. Had an upsetting experience with the dentist that caused me to look elsewhere for dental care.Some of you know I have been in International Business traveling the world at least 75% of each month. Had a root canal procedure while in Canada, and often needed dental care while on the road.I believe in networking. Ask enough people for help and you get led to the right place. Sooo, I was at a handmade chocolate store in Laguna Beach, and mentioned to the woman behind the counter if she knew of a good dentist. (There is a moral here.) Coincidentally, she had been in the dental business years ago and told me, find a graduate of UCI! She said they are the best.Googled for UCI grads--interviewed three in Newport. My business practice (I ran International Expansion for Coldwell Banker Real Estate) teaches a process to follow when attempting to deal with any issue needing resolve. Listen to UnderstandDiagnosis Current StateDevelop a plan to deliver solutionsSchedule the delivery of the planDeliverMeasure the successMonitor the situationImprove the planand then, start the process all over.By now I am convinced you are all wondering what the heck I am talking about.The only Dentist that followed this cycle of "diagnosis" happened right here with Dr. Niven.Instead of taking me into the chair to start looking in my mouth, he consulted and asked questions in the consultation room! What a unique idea! He was told of my disappointment with my current dentist, and heard most of the history I have just presented.On the next visit he took X-rays and told me I had 10 cavities, under crowns! I was in plain language shocked! I also needed 7 root canals as the cavities were invasive. and--he presented me with 3 alternative plans. (Refer here back to my list of resolving issues.)To keep this letter from becoming a term paper, I will close.I am now the proud owner of 28 new shiny porcelains. Took awhile but you all were instrumental in making a very upsetting issue bearable.Dr. NIven, you are blessed to have the team around you. And to the team, you are all blessed to be working with a man of his talent, skill and personality. Wishing you all a healthy and fruitful 2016.
