Dr. Gharib and his staff were superb. My pain in my tooth intensified over a couple of days and was super painful and I didn't know how much longer I could tolerate it! I needed help, fast. Fortunately I was able to get an immediate appointment with Dr. Gharib and his helpful staff which made me feel comfortable right away. Dr. Gharib walked me through the process, was very calming and described all the sensations so I would know what to expect. It was comforting and I felt I was in good hands. Dr. Gharib even called me later that evening to check up on me. So happy with this quality service. You don't know how relieved I am to be free from this pain! Thank you so much.

Dr. Saman R. Gharib and his team is really great. Sam is the most kind endodontist I've ever seen. He is also very professional. He explains every step he is taking in details. I recommend all my friends to go to Sam for endodontics procedures.

I feel so lucky to have been referred to Dr. Gharib by my dentist. His office was able to get me in within 50 minutes after I called and immediately found the problem with my tooth. He was able to perform a root canal right then and I left the office pain free. Dr. Gharib and Sharon and Christina were very kind and caring making sure I was comfortable at all times. I couldn't recommend Endodontics of Orange County more highly. I am very grateful to them for the great care.
