ROUTINE EXAMS + CLEANING
When you first visit our dental office, you will receive a dental exam, oral cancer screening, and treatment evaluation. Prevention is vital to your dental health, and is most easily accomplished through routine daily brushing, flossing and regular dental appointments. Our team is dedicated to making sure that you feel comfortable, whether you’re in the office for a regular check-up or full-scale treatment.
Porcelain Crowns, Bridges and Veneers are beneficial, whether a single tooth or full mouth rehabilitation. Proper restorations can fix broken, fractured or chipped teeth, protect root canal treated teeth and help you to keep your natural tooth structure for a lifetime. We are proud to practice metal-free dentistry. Your health is our primary concern, while making your smile both bright and healthy.
If you are not proud of your smile or your smile is discolored, we can help you rediscover your smile! Dr. Lester has several different options to whiten dull teeth.
MISSING TOOTH OPTIONS
If you are facing the loss of one or more teeth we have several options for you. Dr. David Lester will work with you to find the solution that best fits your needs.
If your fear keeps you from getting the dental care you need, sedation dentistry maybe your answer. Gentle dentistry aided by Nitrous Oxide can alleviate anxiety during your dental procedure. Patients with dental phobias can relax knowing they will have a positive, more comfortable experience. Nitrous Oxide is completely safe, does not interact with other medications you are taking, and allows you to drive yourself to and from your appointment.
Dr. Lester is kind and comforting, placing emphasis on proper maintenance and care of baby teeth. This is instrumental in creating good chewing habits, proper speech, and holding space for your child's permanent teeth. Educating parents and children is important to keeping teeth strong and healthy. Tracking growth and development will lessen the chances of tooth decay.

MEET OUR DOCTOR
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. 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.”
