Two Generations of Dentistry, over 50 years Experience!


Dr. Lester is a native of the City of Orange and a second-generation Doctor of Dentistry. His father, Dr. Gary Lester, served this great county from 1963 to 1996.


Dr. David started as Dr. Gary’s assistant in the late 70s—when he was just a teenager.  He attended St. Catherine’s Military Elementary School and is a proud graduate of Mater Dei High School. He then went on to receive his Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from Cal State Fullerton and was an award-winning student at UCLA School of Dentistry where he graduated at the top of his class.

Since 1989 Dr. David has been creating beautiful smiles and relieving dental distress throughout the community. He has treated many patients since they were children and now treats their children! Because he has known most of his patients and their families for over four decades, he considers them not to be just patients, but true friends and family.

Dr. David considers himself to be patriotic and all American! As a young teenager, he worked at McDonald’s in Santa Ana and during college he sold season tickets for the California Angels. (AKA the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim)


Dr. Lester is a life-long member of the Academy of General Dentistry and belongs to the prestigious Stuart Gnathological Group of Laguna Beach. He has lectured at ULCA School of Dentistry and was featured as a “Top Doc of Orange County” on the Doctor Oz show.


Dr. Lester has three adult children—all three are graduates of El Modena High School and each is now a college graduate as well. They are truly his pride and joy. Dr. Lester enjoys playing the banjo and the trombone. He loves traveling  and is a huge fan of “The Walking Dead.”
