I was referred here by my dentist as he was on vacation, WHAT A BLESSING!  I’v worn dentures for many years and I knew I might be getting close to having a new set made, and sure enough the other night I bit into a piece of toast and felt something weird.  Sure enough I felt a crack in my upper plate from front to back.  They repaired my plate the same day, I don’t remember that plate ever fitting this good!  As I;m reading all these reviews, they are ALL accurate. Thank you Shamlian Dental Family

The Best: Revitalization, business and work ethics, orthodontic learning and exceptionally straight forward clear-fact dentistry I have experienced. There is always something you would prefer done differently, in any service, right? Here is something special, not a service, a trust..a guarantee. Most people think of doctor care as “Only if I’m forced, the most unpleasant encounter in life, they’re all the same” me too. Not anymore.

best Dentist in fresno. I have severe anxiety when it comes to getting dental work . Dr Shamlian makes you feel comfortable and stress free. the office is relaxing and everyone working there is professional and so sweet.

Dr. Dennis Shamlian and Dr. Chris Shamlian both worked on and repaired an old dental implant and saved me a few thousand dollars in the process. Staff is very professional and pleasant. I appreciate their dedication to providing excellent dental service and working with me to meet my financial obligation.

I broke my tooth off Friday night of Labor Day Weekend. I read about it on the internet and realized it was a dental emergency. I called about 10 “emergency dentist” offices but the only staff that answered said I had to make an appointment for Tuesday. It was painful and I was surprised I couldn’t get service. I am totally relieved tonight (Sunday) that I found the Shamlian’s office. The dentist answered the phone Sunday afternoon and gave me sound advice (no pressure). I normally don’t like going to the dentist and have avoided it because of bad experiences. I decided to drive up (from Visalia) and I am completely relieved tonight. I got a root canal and temporary crown installed in a few hours. Both of the dentists worked on me and made sure I was comfortable and happy. It was a great experience for me. Thank you Shamlian Dentistry!

A nice clean office in a great part of town! Plenty of parking, nice big operatories, and there aren’t a million patients in the waiting room. He’s not contracted with my dental insurance, but his staff still bill my insurance for me and I get the reimbursement check in the mail. I have had plenty of crappy dental work in my life and I am tired of having to redo everything. His fish tank is pretty awesome – lots of pretty fish.

Best dentist I’ve ever been to! Dr. Dennis Shamlian is the most knowledgeable and experienced dentist I’ve been to. Not only does he really know what he’s doing, but he can do it all. My previous dentist told me that I had a cavity that went down to the gum line and was so large I would probably lose the tooth. To be certain, he would send me to a specialist’s office for confirmation, but to expect that the tooth would be extracted. That was bad news. I’ve seen the consequences with my folks of losing teeth, and believe me, it doesn’t improve the quality of those “Golden” years. Anyway, before that dreaded appointment, I went to visit relatives in Fresno and they suggested that I have Dr. Shamlian evaluate my tooth. He did. He said it was no problem to save it! Needless to say, I was happy to get that news and he was true to his word and saved the tooth. He was fast, efficient, walked me through every step while going through the procedure, and made me feel very comfortable. This was huge for me because as a kid I had such a terrible experience with several dentists and an abscessed tooth that I would immediately begin to feel my pulse race just at the thought of seeing a dentist. Dr. Shamlian not only restored my faith in that there are some true dental professionals out there who know what they’re doing, but are intuitive with their patient’s needs and concerns. I now make it a point to reserve my dental visits for my trips to see my relatives in Fresno.

Dentist Shamlian is very professional and even dies follow up calls.  Highly recommended!  My 18 month fell down and knocked her tooth almost completely out on Saturday night around 10am.  After the ER said she did not need stitches he recommended calling a dentist and I looked for 24 hour open dentists.  Dentist Shamlian was the only dentist whom returned my call and gave me very much needed advice after stressing about my little girl being in pain.

Bryana O. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever! They helped my daughter who was in horrible pain. They took us in explained everything and was straightforward no messing around and got the job done. Thank you Doctor. I appreciate your office. You truly care about your patients.. including new ones. I’m very thankful that you helped us.

Linda W. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow just wow! They got me in same day, I had a tooth abscess and was in excruciating pain. The doctor was one of the most thorough dentists I’ve ever encountered and he made me feel so comfortable. He was realistic with my budget and made me feel at ease. I will for sure be coming back here for all my dental needs.

Vicky M. from Fresno, CA (Source: Google)


The first time I met Dr Shamlian was on a 3-day weekend when I was in a jam with my 6-year old daughter. She was in immense pain with swelling on her face. She had been to one of those dental buses that come around to the schools (BAD IDEA!!). They removed one of her fillings because they said it was cracked, and then they replaced it. Dr Shamlian came up on-line and I was so happy when someone answered the phone on a Sunday morning. He met me at his office within 45 minutes. He took an x-ray of my daughter, said the infection was under the filling, and she was in desperate need of a root canal. She was not an easy patient, being 6 years old, and was in a lot of pain. She was crying and wouldn’t keep her mouth open big enough. He was very patient and stern at the same time. He told her he can’t work if she’s crying and that she had to stop so he could finish. As soon as he took out the filling, the pressure was released and my daughter felt much better. He finished the root canal and we were on our way. It was a little costly, but what do you expect on a 3-day weekend in an emergency with a child!! Thank God he was there for us!!

I haven’t been to a dentist in so long and never knew how to be really treated And valued. I will keep coming back to this dentist and see Christopher again. I couldn’t be more happier with the care I received. Thank you guys with this hard time going on. Thank you guys for being there for me.

Madeleine Y. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really can’t say enough about my visit to this place. Caring Gentle Fast Great patience service! And available when other providers go home and ask you to, “leave a message” when your freaked out or in pain! Excellent family practice and all inclusive makes it easier to have any and all work needed done in house; no extra trips or specialists they are located in this office. Well organized and beautiful comforting surrounding.

Rebecca S. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my follow up for my extraction with Dr. Chris Shamlian, and his and the rest of the staff’s friendly bedside manner exceeded my expectations. I received 2 calls from his staff before this check up to see how I was doing. That just goes to show the level of care you get with this office. I go back in a month for the final check up, and will start the beginning of the rest of my dental work (which will be extensive). This office clearly has top notch equipment and offers so many services, I am actually looking forward to working on my smile. Like other reviewers have said, you get what you pay for.

I get so anxious going to the dentist due to some bad experiences. Dr. Shamlian is so friendly and upbeat. He explained everything and talked me through the work he was doing. I even mentioned that I can’t have epinephrine if I get dental work and they believed me! My last dentist gave it to me and I still felt all the pain. I HATE cleanings because of receding gums but Dr. Shamlian’s dental hygienist Rebecca was so gentle she didn’t have to numb my gums. His front staff is also friendly. We have switched everyone in our family, including our daughter, to Shamlian Family dental. I won’t go to anyone else! Thank you to everyone at Shamlian Family dental!

Paula S. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


Called at 7 o’clock in the morning on a Tuesday after being in pain all night. They had me in a chair within 30 minutes. Explaining all my options and even writing a diagram for me to understand. Got a cost upfront which was wonderful. They were also friendly and nice and put me at ease. Called to check on me the next day. I highly recommend this office.

This office has a Wonderful and experienced group of masterful dentists! The office is so calm and clean and the dentists (a Father-son-daughter team) are highly trained and provide excellent treatments. Dr. Dennis Shamlian is a Master of the Academy of General dentistry with over 40+years experience.

Lisa T. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Shamlian was awesome. I was camping and 5 hours from home when I experienced terrible tooth pain. I called from my tent at 730 in morning. I was seen as soon as I got there. The office staff was incredibly kind and helpful. Thank you 24 hour Dental Care in Fresno!!! I felt better the instant I left the office. You guys rock!!

Ashley E. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful service!  Extremely helpful and FAST.  I called them late in the evening right after my back molar shattered, and was grateful when they told me to come in, even though their regular hours had just ended for the night.  I rushed to their office, and within about 30 minutes, was out the door again with a temporary crown, and an appointment set for a few days later to get the permanent one.  Dr. Shamlian did an excellent job, and the whole staff was kind.  I’m sure they were eager to get home to their families at the end of a long work day, but they didn’t show it–they projected concern, sympathy, and professionalism.  It was dark when I left, and a receptionist even walked my to my car to make sure I was safe.  I’m new to Fresno, and hadn’t anticipated needing a dentist this soon, but am grateful to have found this office.

Honest and caring. I can easily recommend Shamlian Family Dental. Please don’t hesitate to call them for your regular visits, or more in-depth dental work. Their staff is very professional and they communicate well.

Fantastic office! The staff and Dr. Shamlian are incredibly friendly. They explain everything well and really care about making their patients comfortable. Plus it’s so nice to see that Dr. Shamlian also treats his staff so respectful and goes out of his way to be nice. I highly recommend this office. I will never go anywhere else!!

Just before walking into your office today, I was nearly in tears from tooth pain. Thank you Doctor Shamlian for having such an awesome personality. And thank you for making me feel welcomed, and for taking this pain away. Your staff is awesome, such a friendly and professional environment. So happy to be a new patient.

Traci F. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


AMEN! I am a very nervous dental patient and therefore I go once a year for a cleaning and when I have a pain develop. This time I had a tooth ache that went up to my ear and actually made me dizzy with extreme nausea. My husband called on a Saturday evening and we were able to get an appt that night! They opened up just for me. I was so relied and so very thankful for Dr Shamlian and his staff. I went from pain close to childbirth levels to none. He was very thoughtful, courteous and kept asking throughout the process if I was feeling any discomfort.

Frank V. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been away from dentists for far too long, and because of it I suffered. On a Sunday it bothered me so much that I was getting to the point of pulling it myself if I couldn’t get relief any other way. I searched the internet for emergency dental offices and found this one, so I called and had an appointment to be seen a half hour later, on Sunday mind you. I went there to meet with the doctor who performed the extraction, that in all my experiences with dentistry was absolutely the best. Relieved from the terrible pain I can only say that this will be my dental office to go to from now on. I really, truly appreciate that he was willing to come out on a Sunday afternoon and help me. He is very nice, very professional, and really didn’t cause any discomfort that I was expecting when I got there. All I can add is a sincere Thank You.

Anna A. from Chowchilla, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just returned from a much needed dental visit with Christopher. Shamlian  DDS, I found the staff and Dr.Shamilian  to be educated, ( USC Grad),professional and friendly. The office looks like something out of Architectural Digest, only  different with has bright shiny clean state of the art  dental equipment. First class, you get what you pay for.

Ryan C. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a really bad dental infection from a broken tooth, called at 7:30pm for an emergency visit. I was seen by 9pm. I had the best dental experience ever and I believe I made the right decision choosing shamlian dental. The facility is top notch and so is the care and service. I’ll never see another practice again.

Cameron S. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)


During Thanksgiving dinner, 2011, I experienced a dental emergency causing shearing pain throughout my jaw that dropped me to my knees.  Dr. Shamlian and his staff sacrificed their Thanksgiving evening and precious family memories to attend to my dental emergency… Dr. Shamlian exemplified humility through his unconditional positive regard for a complete stranger in need at the worst possible moment… that I am truly grateful for.

Mike N. from Caruthers, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for good dentist so This is it !! The place is very clean . The staff is very nice and organized.they are fully equipped with new technology and material . they know what they are doing. I like them very much . I hope they will keep up this great treatment for all customers.

Angie A. from Oakhurst, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the moment I walked in to this dentist office I felt welcomed. Everyone that works in this office is extremely friendly and caring. I had a chipped tooth and they got me in the next day. They did an excellent job on my cap! You could not even tell which cap was fake. And they even made my smile evenbetter! Amazing! Not the best pictures, but they matched the ridges and the opaque color to a T…I was super impressed! I would recommend these amazing doctors to anyone. I love that the father son and daughter all work in the same office…all USC alumni..How proud the father must be…Make your appt today. You won’t regret it 🙂  5 stars!

Mee E. from Chico, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you’re looking for the best gentle dentists in town please come here…I HATE going to the dentist because of a horrible experience…I was so scared I was shaking when I sat down in the chair…the dentist and assistants were so nice they made me feel so calm…I had a root canal done and it was the most pleasant experience at any dentist in my entire life I was smiling when I left and now I can’t wait to go back…who knew having such a great experience could change my mind about going to the dentist…I also had a deep cleaning and it was a cake walk…sugar free cake walk they do all kinds of different dental work here …they take delta dental PPO I believe so don’t wait until all your teeth fall out because you’re too scared COME HERE! And if some other dentist tells you they can’t save your tooth COME HERE!

Julie R. from Fresno, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is great I had a tooth ACHE and I called at 12am they had me come in at 1am Dr. Shamlian got me out of pain and able to sleep. Very detailed in explaining the procedure and walked me through every step as he did the procedure. This will be my new go to dentist! Thank you!!!!!

Haircare A. from South San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Shamlian and his team are the best! You all need to come here if you want the best dentist in the valley to work on your teeth. No waiting time, comfortable atmosphere, extremely experienced in all dental fields and painless. Every time I need dental work I make sure to come here. I have had a problem with going to the dentist and being scared because I have had a few mishaps in other dentist offices. When I first came here to see Dr. Shamlian I immediately felt safe and felt no need to worry. He is a 24 hour dentist and I came here in an emergency where my wisdom teeth hurt so bad my arm went numb ;( I got two wisdom teeth pulled out which was the quickest and non painful surgery I ever received. No swelling the next day so I went to school with no problems. The dentist is very polite and smart and treated me with care. I will ONLY be going to this dentist from now on. I will be needing a lot of work done to fix my smile and I am positive it will happen with Dr. Shamlian in no time. Next time I’m getting root canals done and I’m proud to say I can’t wait, lol. My smile will be perfect in no time.

A few weeks ago I cracked a tooth eating dinner on a Thursday night, and I was lucky to find Dr. Shamlian, who was not only open late, but had a free schedule as well. This office is 100% fully clean. Not a spot, not a blemish anywhere to be found, be it on the floors or in the restroom. That is very reassuring that they are certain to apply the same level of sanitation to their tools as they are to the bathroom sink. The staff is friendly, and any time I have had any questions, they have been more than helpful in working with me to come to a satisfactory answer. I have worked with both the elder and the younger Doctor Shamlian, and I have every confidence that they both are experts in their field. They have taken good care of my tooth throughout the root canal process, and they both explain what they are doing as they do it. I definitely feel like I got a lesson in dentistry just by sitting with my mouth open and letting them work. Their hours are almost unbelievable. On Wednesdays and Thursdays they are open until 7:30pm, and they open at 7am some days as well. This has allowed me to not only get immediate care for my broken tooth, but make no fewer than five follow-up visits without missing so much as an hour of work. Now… the billing. The billing has not been my favorite. I am having to pay with my credit card as I go, and they are sending my insurance company the bills, with the intent of having them reimburse me. I have never had a dentist do this before, and it is causing me a financial pinch, but to be fair this is also the first time I have used this dental insurance, so it might be my insurance company, which is why I’m not docking a star off this review. The bottom line is that the Shamlian family practice has saved me from tremendous pain, doing so in a very comfortable environment while sparing my sick leave at work. That meets and exceeds expectations on a number of fronts.
