I am grateful to have been trusted with 28 years of caring for patients in the community of Newport Beach. At this point in my career, I am privileged to practice Endodontics because I want to, not because I have to.

With our new office, Integrity Endodontics, we have invested in all of the most current technology, instruments and materials. I am excited as I look forward to continuing and growing our relationship for many years to come!

Carrie began dental assisting with Dr. Buoncristiani in 1995. I'm pretty sure that she was still in pre-school way back then :^) She loves her family and spending time with them. Carrie also loves animals and working out. Born in Chicago, she came to Southern California in 3rd grade and loves the beach and sunshine.

Cindy loves spending time with her family. In her spare time, you may find her at the beach, hiking or at the gym. She loves dancing and music. You just might see her pulled up at a traffic light next to you dancing in her car with her music turned up really loud!

Dr Buancristiana is very knowledgeable at what he does. I am very thankful to him and his staff for assisting me with my root canal. Thanks to his expertise I am able to chew on the left side of my mouth again. He has an outstanding staff, facility and equipment. Very clean. I highly recommend his services to anyone needing a root canal. Thanks again!

As a dental specialist myself, I select who I see for dental work very carefully. I can honestly say that Dr. Buoncristiani's practice lives up to its name - he operates with high integrity and all aspects of his office/staff run like a well-oiled machine. Dr. Buoncristiani and his staff did a thorough exam and CBCT of my tooth and although my tooth had a crack and could not be saved, he explained everything very clearly and graciously answered all of the questions that I had. Highly recommend!

This staff is wonderful, especially Nora! The endodontist, Dr. John Buoncristiani, made me feel comfortable, and was very personable and professional. I went in on a Friday Afternoon, I had root canal completed and I would recommend, if ever needed, he's the Doc ! I am in the medical profession and he was very Quick, painless, informative, professional! And.. The office is beautiful!

ALWAYS, ALWAYS THE BEST! Care, experience, works cooperatively. I adore John. He is also my quarterback on my sons long term care to a maxiofacial injury and maintaining his tooth health as long as possible, until it will be time for a permanent solution. Knowing he's a parent and wants to spare my son from embarrassment, I picked up on immediately. I just had 2 root canals, prices very comparable, but you'll get the best care and treatment with him the team at Integrity. It lives up to its name.

Dr. Buoncristiani is the absolute BEST! I've had my share of awful dental experiences, but never here. He was able to repair my tooth and actually avoid my needing an implant. Love the guy!

Dr. Buoncristiani came highly recommended by a few very respectable peers in the dental industry. They all said he's highly qualified and performs great Root Canal procedures, and they assured me "that I wouldn't feel any pain" and "that I'd get a quality result". The verdict is...It's true!! Dr. Buoncristiani (and his assistant Nora) took me from A thru Z, while explaining every part of the procedure clearly and compassionately at my consultation. Then came my procedure (which I was stressing about because of a bad root canal procedure memory from many years ago). My procedure was performed perfectly, with No Pain Whatsoever!! If you ever need a root canal, go see Dr. B at the Newport Endodontic Group. He and the office get an A+ from me.

Dr. Buoncristiani had utmost bedside manner as he was very kind and incredibly sweet. I tend to have anxiety at the dentist, but I was instantly comfortable when I met Dr. Buoncristiani. I really appreciated his gentle touch. He was so QUICK yet thorough, and explained everything in layman's terms! The office is gorgeous and I even had time to grab food and enjoy a brisk walk around fashion island thereafter! Location, location, location! Lastly, I was pleased to hear that Doctor takes time out of his busy schedule to commute all the way to UCLA to give back and teach at the university. This is my favorite thing about him.

Let me start by saying that I have a huge fear of dentists based on a very bad experience I had when I was younger, so I am very picky about anybody putting electric drills in my mouth. I had heard really good things about Dr. John Buoncristiani from some friends, but I was still very nervous, especially since I was going to him because my last root canal from another dentist had failed and it needed to be redone. Wow, what a difference from what I was fearing. Dr. John and his staff were amazing! They took the time to comfort me and explain the entire process in detail. The office and equipment was top notch. Everyone was super friendly and efficient. Best of all, everything went well and they were right when they said that it should be painless (I honestly did not believe them). I have nothing but great things to say about Dr. John and his team. I will absolutely use them again if needed...although I hope I never have to!
