Absolutely fantastic dental experience! Loraine is the most sweet, gentle and meticulous dental hygienist I’ve ever had! My teeth and mouth feel so fresh, and so clean clean! Now, thinking about doing Invisalign and veneers with them. Can only sing praises of Advance Dental Studio!

Love this office! Best dental care I’ve ever received! Very accommodating and patient and to top that off the prices are fair. Hands down the most painless shots I’ve got to date. Dr. Gal and Dr. Tamir are just awesome! Highly recommended!

Edan E. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


My first time at this dentist, and I havn’t been to a dentist in years due to the fact that i have a fear of them, and I could never feel comfortable enough or happy enough to keep going.  Though it was my first time it felt like I’ve been going there for years they made me feel so comfortable explaining detail by detail on what is exactly going on, the procedure was quick gently handled, and painless. I recommend to any one and any one who has had the same fear as I. Come check this place out ASAP!!! (Great Deals) and most of all never felt so comfortable at any other dentist before .

C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I had a dentist in Beverly Hills for years and then they just became too expensive and too far away to deal with. And, we’ve tried lots of dentists since, none of them that we felt comfortable with for one reason or another. Then, we found Dr. Tamir, Dr. Gal and Rosie at Advance Dental Studio right in our own neighborhood. And what a find it was! The professionalism, personalized service, and sincere care about us as people they’ve shown is unheard of in this day and age. We are delighted to have them as our dentists. We recommend them highly. Truly the best we’ve met in a long time.

Dr Gal is a wonderful dentist! She took out an old crown I had to replace with a new one. I was very anxious at first but she knew how to calm me down and reassured me that it was an easy process and that I woundnt feel a thing. I can say it went smoother than I had anticipated and in a timely manner. Within a week I had my new crown! Not to mentioned the beautiful crown she used that blends nicely with my own teeth. The crown is a master piece! I can imagine what my new teeth coming are going to look like. Looking forward to do 4 veneers in the front and 2 in the back with her. Il update this review once I get that done. Im happy I chose her as my new dentist now! Thank you Dr Gal I appreciate your time and effort.

Veronica A. from Valley Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


Would give her 10 stars if I could. Love everything about the doctor. She is super patient with me, they have right prices and she did an amazing job on my new front teeth crowns. I couldn’t have asked for a better job. Best money I ever spent. Thank you!!!

Curtis R. from  North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I took a chance on Dr. Gal because of positive Yelp reviews, so it’s only fair that I report back that her five-star reviews are all deserved. I’m not a big fan of going to the dentist – I get anxious about it even. But as soon as I got there, Rosie was so welcoming and friendly that she put me at ease. They had gotten me in on the same day, by the way, because I could tell that an amalgam filling in a big ol’ back molar was leaking, and if not fixed, wouldn’t be pretty or fun. So, I was grateful they could get me in right away! X-rays were done, and then Dr. Gal sat down and examined the offending tooth, plus all the rest of them, confirmed that I did need a crown, but everything else looked great and the crown was really all I was going to need at this time. Now – I have been to at least two dentists here in the Valley that have both tried to upsell me on procedures or treatment plans that I didn’t thing were necessary – so the fact that she wanted to only do what was necessary made me very happy. No push for a “deep clean” or Fluoride treatments, just what I needed. I was able to schedule the crown prep for a few days later. They told me to schedule an hour for the crown prep and I thought it would surely take longer – other crowns I have gotten have taken up to three hours – but it was even less than an hour. The only thing that hurt was the first prick of that novocain needle – and even after that wore off there was just minute discomfort. She was gentle and fast and has a great manner about her…it’s obvious she loves what she does and she cares for the people who are in her chair. One week later, I got the permanent crown – again, so much faster than other places I’ve been, where it takes two weeks – and she got it in with no problems – just a little bit of adjustment and it fit perfectly, looks great. Rosie was able to work with my insurance, too, so even my wallet was spared the pain! I’m scheduled for a check up in 6 months and will actually look forward to it. Highly recommended!

The hygienist did an excellent procedure for me. She was very professional in the way she she interacted with me , always explaining what she was about to do. Her concern for my safety and comfort was evident because she made sure if I was okay. My husband and daughter had high praises for the hygienist. They told me too that she had gentle hands, no pain at all.

I made the decision to select a new dentist office and choose Dr. Tamir’s office after much research. In addition, I liked how the office felt when I walked in and the staff was warm and accommodating. Yesterday (12/14/17) was my first appointment with the Hygienist and I was a bit nervous about the quality of her work. She assured me of her 20 years of qualifications putting me at ease. WOW – to my surprise I received the best cleaning of my entire life (71 yrs. old). She was very gentle and caring asking me how I was doing which took away any anxiety. Mandy is the best Hygienist anywhere!!!!!!!!!! Glenn B

I always get excellent service with Dr Gal!!!!  She has rescued me MANY times!!!!!  She and Rosie give always make me feel like I’m cared about!!!!  If you’re looking for a dentist, this is the place to be!!!!!!  Thank you Dr Gal!!!!  I have my smile!!!!!!!  Whooo hooooo!!!

Benson G. from Gadsden, AL (Source: Yelp)


I saw Dr. Gal for an exam and cleaning when I was living in LA a couple years ago and I have to say it was by far the most pleasant experience at a dentist’s office in my life. I also got a cavity filled on that day, so that should speak volumes about the friendly professionalism of Dr. Gal and her staff. I had nothing unusual done on that day so I can’t speak to complex procedures or whatnot, but if I needed an exam/cleaning in LA this is absolutely where I would go.

Brent S. (Source: Zocdoc)


Personally, I drive TWO HOURS from Palm Springs to Whittier to see this dentist. After much research, the prices are right and more importantly the customer service is excellent. I literally saved MORE money driving two hours (including gas) and his services then I would have if I used a local dentist in Palm Springs.

Ekaterina P. from Burbank, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would like to say Thank you so much Dr. Gal. She rescued me and my tooth from bad pain. I visited her office three times and got totally new tooth, she made root canal, cavity filling for next tooth, and ceramic crown. I was so scared about crown because i was able to change my front tooth, but Dr.Gal explained all details and shown me example of crown, they chose the right color. And now anyone can not notice that i have artificial tooth. Dr. Gal and her staff are so friendly. Highly recommended!!!

Nathan S. from Valley Village, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Having had Dr. Gal place 10 completely natural looking crowns in the front of my mouth qualifies me to crown her as the best dentist I have ever had.  She was as gentle, kind, and skilled as possible.  She renewed my smile as my own teeth were eroding away.   Insurance refused to cover my crowns, but Dr. Gal took that under consideration.  Now my teeth look amazingly real and age appropriate.  I receive compliments about them once again.   My hat also off to Rosie, the dental assistant and front office manager.  She is as sharp as it gets.

Cory B. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


I have disliked and avoided going to the dentist for years after many bad experiences. My opinion of dentistry has flipped completely since working with Dr. Gal and Rosie at this office. Simply put – they are FANTASTIC. If you’ve been searching for a good dentist it is my opinion that you stop searching and make an appointment immediately. Seriously! Dr. Gal’s pricing is very fair and straightforward. I’ve been extremely impressed. My time at their office has not been all fun and games either. I’ve had some serious work done… but it has been the most stress-free experience ever and that is because working with Rosie and Dr. Gal has been so great. Thank you both for your hard work and for all the laughs! Cheers

Jocelyn G. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience in this dental office, the staff members were friendly and helpful, the place is very clean and organized, and the dentist was gentle and communicated well.  i found this place because they accepted care credit which helped me pay for my treatment.  I will definately come back for another visit.

Brandy V. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent service and dentists. I had a terrible toothache that started yesterday and was even worse today. I called Advance dental this morning and they saw me even though I was not a patient, it was SUNDAY, and I didn’t have an appointment. I am TERRIFIED of the dentist and usually take A LOT of anxiety meds before an appointment. This time though, I’m pregnant and can’t take anything. Dr. Gal put me completely at ease. Unfortunately, I had to have an extraction which she did quickly and painlessly. She offered to write me a prescription for pain meds which I refused due to being pregnant. She informed me if I changed my mind I could call her ON HER CELL PHONE and she would take care of me. I’ve never had such personal and caring service from a dentist office before. I wasn’t a patient before, but I certainly am now. And both my husband and I are going in for cleanings in three weeks. I didn’t catch her assistants name, but she was also very kind and caring and managed to squeeze me into their busy day.

When I first arrived, the lobby was almost filled. I thought this was a good sign. The front desk team was so sweet and polite and explained the reason for the wait being that on Tuesdays they have a specialist there and stack the schedule. Once I got back to see the doctors I had 3 in the room. They were all so attentive and took so much time to talk to me about my treatment case. They really were candid and open about anything I wanted to know. They quickly followed up with amazing pricing and even offered a discount if I paid it all in full. They saved me over $7,000 from previous quotes at other dentists. I am so happy and so excited to have this work completed under their care and plan on referring them to anyone needing serious dental work

Excellent workmanship, did a lot of work in my mouth and everything is perfect, affordable prices , happy environment and a gorgeous doctor…. recommend this place to my entire family and friends…very Happy I found this dentist.

Anth W. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


2 years ago I was told I needed about $3000 worth of dental work and would suffer great pain if I didn’t follow their recommendations. I naturally ignored their hard sell and just recently came across Dr Gal. No nonsense, in and out in 30 mins, and said my teeth were great and didn’t need anything done to them. Such a relief to find a great dentist who isn’t interested in padding their bank account with BS services. Very pleased 🙂

Brent B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot find the words to describe how great my experience at advance dental studio was. First off, they are affordable, and definitely worth double what they charge. From the moment i walked in i was greeted very politely and was treated with the upmost respect throughout my visit. Dr. Gal and Dr. Tamir are running an amazing business here and even though i hate being in a dentist office, i actually enjoyed my experience and i have never been so satisfied with how well i was treated, and the work shows for itself. From cleaning, to diagnosing, to treating my dental care, they are TOP OF THE LINE. I will continue by business with them and i am almost looking forward to my next cavity (; do not bother looking anywhere else in the LA area for great dental work and hospitality.

This is a great dental office. The office staff are very friendly, the dentists are professional and thorough and the office is clean and updated with state of the art technology. Nadia, the technician was great and helped put me at ease. Also, April was very helpful and proficient with the paperwork. I definitely recommend this office!!

Dani Rojas (Source: Google)


This is the only place I go to get the job done! I’ve been coming for about 2 years now because not only do they do treat you with the upmost respect, but they definitely make you feel appricated. I do reccommend this place to my friends and family!

Pam M. (Source: Zocdoc)


I love the staff at Atlantic Dental, they have never surprised me with a crazy bill and there bed side manner is 100% genuine. Dr. Tamir and Dr. Paz do outstanding cosmetic dentistry as well tackling any other challenges placed in front of them

Ryan H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


i would highly recommend. ; – ) came here twice – for zoom whitening. the first pass made a nice difference. but i wanted that blinding white colton haynes kind of smile so i came back a second time (3 weeks later) for another treatment! there was definitely a difference with the first treatment. and i think the second made things even better although i notice the effects of the second treatment mostly when i’m outside in the sun, because i think that light has a different spectrum and visual effect on your teeth. or my teeth! but i did notice a visible and positive difference from each. the lab technician edwin who set me up here was very nice. just easy going as he goes about a basic but sort of awkward process as your mouth is stuffed with cotton, mouth guards, squirted with gel. then you pretty much sit there for three 15-minute sessions as a blue light is focused on the gel, which is freshly squired for each session. there’s a digital count down timer on the light head so you can see how much time has elapsed. i would suggest bringing ear buds (not headphones… i think they’d get in the way of the chair headrest and padding and you have to lay still a certain way right up against the mouth light) and just chilling there as the session goes by. i would not suggest bringing an iPad or thinking you’re going to watch things on the phone b/c you have to sit still and keep the light completely focused on your choppers. dr. gal stopped by during the process both times. she was busy with other patients but i appreciated her saying hello and at the end of the second routine, we chatted a bit. certainly a very pleasant dentist. just chill and nice. what attracted me here initially was the price, and also i chose a location in studio city even though spots in beverly hills are closer to me in hollywood. but to be honest i hate that beverly hills grind of generally difficult to find and expensive parking, everyone crossing beverly drive where all the medical offices are to their plastic surgeon or what not. plus in my experience it takes more time to get through beverly hills, park, fight the crowds in the always busy buildings, etc etc than it takes to just drive to the valley for a bit of calm and easy parking! i took quite a bit of ibuprofen before i went for this procedure, because i was sure it would hurt (your tooth sensitivity is way way wayyyyy up). i know people who couldn’t last the 3 treatments (3 treatments per session), and i know a bride who had her teeth whitened (not here btw…), and it was so painful she cried! for two days too! tbh i didn’t feel a thing during the process. afterward there is an occassional zing of pain shooting through your teeth / gums. but it was not at all unbearable or unexpected. anyway- beauty is pain so…! you’re gonna have to suffer a little! i can’t speak to the other dental services here but i’m sure they are good. the office is clean, professional, everyone i met on staff was nice. and the zoom is very well priced and effective. teeth whitening will probably be something i do every year of two. (maintain, the in-between with white strips.) this would certainly be my first choice for it. thanks dr. gal, edwin, and all!

Dana S. from Sawtelle, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Rosie at the front desk was super nice. She was very accommodating and knew what she was doing. Dr. Gal is a great dentist- she didn’t try to sell me anything like other dentists. She’s nice, honest, and finally a dentist I can trust to tell me the truth. Highly recommend!

Elizabeth C. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been meaning to write this review for quite some time. I’ve needed implants for years as I have/had baby teeth that never were replaced with permanent teeth. After feeling frustrated and overwhelmed by going to one consultation after another, I was referred to Dr.T by a friend. I immediately felt like I trusted him and that the quote I received was honest and fair. His wife, Dr. Gal, and Rosie were amazing as well. This is hands down the best dentist office that I have ever been to. I can smile now without feeling self-conscious. They really changed my life. I don’t think that I can express my gratitude enough. Thank you all so much.

Jon R. fron Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to this office and it surprised me of how amazing and affordable the cleaning was. The dentist was extremely nice, easy to talk to. I felt absolutely fantastic after my teeth cleaning. I will be returning for another cleaning soon. Thanks so much Dr. G.

Mina G. (Source: Zocdoc)


I had a teeth cleaning appointment today with Bina. She’s always professional, patient, and educates me on how to improve my dental hygiene. All of the staff are professional, friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this dental office to anyone interested in seeking dental work and maintaining good dental health.

This is my 3rd visit and I must say that I am most impressed by the professionalism of everyone that I’ve met at the dental clinic. Most accomodating and very courteous. Ms Sonia was superb! Dr Paz, very professional. If this clinic was mine, I’d reward all of them by way of doubling their wages!! Thank you very much

Daniel Y. from La Crescenta-Montrose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t ask for more…It was my first time here and was treated like I was a family member of their own….Very fast in the waiting room, I got there around 345PM…lucky it was just me the waiting room, I filled some papers out and was on my way to the dental chair in less the 10 minutes of walking in. I was really pleased =] Rosie the dental assistant was super nice, and made me laugh, I can tell she loved her work, I’m happy she was assisting me at the time =D We did x-rays and luckily everything was okay! after that i went to get my teeth cleaned by the doctor… after a few flashbacks from past experiences in the chair, I was happy to see that there was no power tools involved in this cleaning, and wow she didn’t a fantastic job on removed the plaque from my teeth. last Rosie polished my teeth so they could be extra clean… this wonderful experience all lasted about an hour at the most.. Thanks again for the wonderful services you all performed! =D see you next year Doctor!

I found Dr. Maytal Gal through these amazing yelp reviews so I decided to write my own. I am so happy I found her and never thought I could be happy about a dentist. A good dentist is hard to find, let’s face it. But I did 🙂 I have been through so many other dentists and every single time I would get anxiety before going either because of the money I would have to spend or the pain and discomfort I might endure. I never have to feel that way again. Dr. Maytal Gal is quick, gentle and always on time! I have sensitive teeth and it has never been an issue when she cleans my teeth. In fact, she is sincerely caring about her patients that she even gave me free packets to use for the sensitivity issues I had been experiencing. If you have a fear of going to the dentist, I HIGHLY recommend going to this Dental Studio. I would give more stars if I could.

Joey S. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t agree more with the positive reviews. Going to the dentist isn’t ever fun. It can be very costly both financially and emotionally. I also believe finding a dentist as an adult isn’t easy. One, myself included, grows up going to a dentist our parents bring us to. We continue to go to that dentist until we move away or that dentist stops practicing and then we are off on our own. I was doing some searching online for a dentist with positive feedback located in Studio City. Dr. Gal seemed perfect and she was offering a special cleaning deal with free X-rays. I believe I payed $20. As soon as I showed up I felt at ease. Her special office manager / secretary couldn’t have been any nicer and helpful. Dr Gal introduced herself immediately and told me she would be with me shortly. Appointment time was kept punctual (this goes very far for the customer) and then after X-rays she didn’t hit me with a monstrous diagnostic summary for what I need to spend on my teeth and then send me to the “financial credit” sector of the office. That has happened to be in the past with two other dentist. “Oh you can’t afford $6000 worth of dental work right now? That’s ok we have our own financing institutions”. Talk about feeling ripped off. Six months later I received a follow up call from her office asking to come in at my convenience for another cleaning. Happily I did and received another clean bill of health. My girlfriend, ironically complained about her tooth the night before. I brought her along with me and told her id like her to meet my new dentist. She’s great. She came with me and Dr. Gal squeezed her in and gave her a check up and X-rays at no charge. Turns out she did have a small cavity. My girlfriend will be headed back in a week to get that taken care of. Did I mention that her whole family is in the Dentistry FEILD? All of her sisters are certified Hygienists. I look forward to having Dr Gal take care of my teeth for a very long time. Thank you Dr for your skill and service. Roll the dice on Dr Gal you won’t be disappointed.

Few days ago I was eating a tomato sandwich and my tooth chipped off! It was in the middle of the night and I spent all night looking for a dentist that could fix it. I called all of them and they were all a huge disappointment. I am a broke college student. I have insurance through western dental, but they truly suck. I would rather have my teeth rot in my mouth than have western dental operate any kind of work on my teeth. I called Dr. Gal and she took me in the same day! She’s truly so amazing. She took me in on her day off!! How many dentist do you know that care enough to take you in on their day off? I was a complete stranger who was in dire need of help and she came to my rescue. She not only fixed my tooth, but she was so kind and helpful. I have been to so many dentists over the last few years and each and every one of them lied to me and tried to rip me off. But Dr. Gal was very honest and answered every question I had. I went back to her today to have two fillings done and have my tooth fixed again. I was so stupid for wearing my retainers without having Dr. Gal fix them first! But she fixed my tooth again and took care of my cavities. Her prices are extremely reasonable. I will follow her everywhere she goes. Not even kidding. She’s truly fantastic. I am going to get an implant done this Sunday and the price for the implant was very reasonable compared to all the other dentists I’ve spoken to. I’ve been on the search for an honest dentist that would treat me like a friend and not lie to me and try to rip me off every chance they get and I finally found her. Dr. Gal, THANK YOU for everything. You are a remarkable person and I will be referring everyone I know to you. My bf is next 😉 PS. The shots did not hurt one bit. Dr. Gal is very gentle. If you want an amazing dentist make an appt with Dr. Gal asap! 🙂
