Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Dr. Abdel-Maqsoud is an absolutely excellent, kind, professional and experienced dentist.  He has been my dentist for over 15 years and been incredibly helpful in improving the health of my teeth and gums.  He is always concerned about the well being and pain level of his patients and makes various suggestions to improve oral health.  His aesthetic work (bonding and crowns) is also excellent.  His staff is friendly and helpful; and his dental hygienist, Denise, is absolutely terrific.  She, too, is gentle and helpful…always concerned about my oral health, and makes practical and helpful suggestions to improve the health of my teeth and gums.  This office is fantastic.  I would recommend  Dr. Abdel-Maqsoud to absolutely anyone!

One of the best dentists I came across. Very proficient, friendly and very skilfull. I experienced no pain and all gain with over 8 years of experience.

Betty N. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maq and his staff ROCK when it pertains to dentistry.  Also, Dr. Maq’s laugh is very contagious, truly demonstrating laughter is the best medicine.  Truly look forward to my appointments (as there is always enough gentle touch and novacaine used so no painful experiences).

Leah S. from Buffalo, NY (Source: Yelp)


I love this dentist! He was recommended by a few of my coworkers and I’m glad I listened to them. He was very knowledgeable and fixed issues with my teeth that I didn’t think were possible (old fillings, sensitive gum issues). The entire staff is very friendly and I was given the best teeth cleaning I’ve had in a long time. Would definitely recommend to anyone who wants to see an experienced dentist.

The best dentist, since I start seeing Dr. Maqsoud I never had teeth pain . And my teeth looks great . Thank you Dr. Maqsoud All office staff are great and very professional

Jamilett O. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have the worse fear and get the worse anxiety at any dental office till I started coming here. Not only is the entire staff so nice but the doctor makes me comfortable and doesn’t scare me. I will only come here and he is the best dentist I’ve met out of at least 3 others that I tried.

Jennifer W. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


The last time I had a root canal 3 years ago scared me as a vein in my back left cheek was injected and my cheek was as big as a softball. Also I have always been a very anxious nervous patient in the dentist chair. Alaa truly is amazing. I knew I needed a root canal for 7 months and as the pain grew I searched and found Alaa. I explained to his office administer I was terrified of dentists so she had me in the day before the procedure for a brief 10 minute introduction. I asked Alaa many questions and he was very knowledgeable. The day of the procedure he made sure I wasn’t nervous and kept coaching me through the worst fear of my life. He made sure I was never in pain and made jokes to make me feel at ease. He is amazing and now I will continue my several dental procedures with him. He and his staff were very kind, patient, and caring.

Joshua K. from Ann Arbor, MI (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit today and it was a really great experience. The staff was very friendly, helpful and seemed genuinely concerned about my comfort and health. This coming from someone who normally hates going to the dentist! Highly recommended!

Maribel F. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


For so long I was afraid of dentist’s. I’ve been coming to see Dr. Max for years and must say that he took my fear away. He is patient and always takes care of my son and I every time we come in. He has eased all of our fears in anything dental related. His entire staff is absolutely wonderful. Gina and Nina are wonderful at the front desk and Mona is amazing at doing the cleanings. He always runs on time which has always been important to me. I am grateful to have found such a wonderful dentist.

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


Amazing staff and so sweet!!! They genuinely care about you and educating you in order to prevent gum disease. I always feel welcomed and don’t “hate” going to the dentist. I moved about 45 mins away and I still come here and wouldn’t want to go anywhere else!

Janet I. from Newhall, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maq is our family dentist and is such a great one! He always jokes around and makes sure you’re feeling okay and pain free as possible. Staff are also nice and friendly. Every visit always has me feeling relaxed and taken care of. Very grateful for an awesome and wonderful dentist!

Derek M. from Venice, CA (Source: Google)


TL;DR is that this is a wonderful dentist and staff who are extremely mindful of your care. Virtually pain-free procedures. I’ve been to the dentist dozens of times throughout my life. I grew up going to the dentist for regular visits, mother emphasizing how much I should take care of my teeth, all that. But my chompers have been through a tough life. I’ve always been a Type A personality, so am always stressed-out. Consequently, I grind my teeth at night, so badly that you’d think I was imagining nothing but fits of rage. Seriously, in my dreams, I’m Donald Trump on a bad-hair day (“Stylist! My comb-over shows my true hairline. You’re fired! GRRRRR!”). The result is badly worn and chipped teeth, so I’ve had a lot of work done over the years. Dr. Maqs is easily the most comforting dentist I have used. I have seen him several times, most recently to repair a badly chipped molar. I came in that day in a near freak-out zone of anxiety, like borderline panic attack (note to self: switch to decaf), and the doc took care of Little Chippy with almost no pain at all. Really, if you’re a total wuss, this is the guy to go to.

Fabeha K. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started going to Dr. Maqsoud last year and I have to say it was one of the best decisions I have made! Dr. Maqsoud is a wonderful dentist. He is attentive, caring, and great at what is he does. He doesn’t just work away at your teeth, but instead while working he constantly checks in with you to ensure you do not feel the slightest bit of pain. The office is very clean and well-maintained. They also do a great job in reminding you about your appointments by calling you the day before/day of to remind you. Him and his whole staff are friendly and welcoming. I have already referred my friends and family. If you are considering going to the dentist, Dr. Maqsoud is your guy!

Gohar V. from Valley Glen, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been Dr. Maqsoud patient about ten years. He has helped me not only with dental work, but emotionally. My son broke his front teeth and I was going crazy until I talked to him. He was able to calm me down and the next morning saw my son and did an excellent job on his teeth.

Janelle M. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been to Dr. Maq.’s office in the past and have always been treated very well. Today we called in with a emergency and we’re worked in first thing! We can’t explain the appreciation we have for service providers like this! I also want to say that the office staff has always done an excellent job of handling the dental billing and cleanings are always A+++

Kamil A. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maqsoud has been my dentist for many years. He is a great skilled dentist who performs quality work. He is very considerate of his patients, timely in his appointments, and thorough in his work. His staff is very friendly and responsive. His clinic is very clean. I highly recommend him.

Lori B. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maq has been my dentist for many many years and I hate the dentist but I LOVE LOVE Dr. Maq. He always makes sure that I’m okay and not in any pain and has always been there for me in any kind of emergency. I went many years without seeing a dentist because I had such a fear, but after coming here and dealing with his staff, who were so kind and helpful, I now come and get my teeth clean on time without the overwhelming fear that I had for most of my life. I love Dr. Maqsoud and I trust him. He’s a kind and gentle man.

Sahar A. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very honest dentist and we never have to wait. One of the best dentistry I’ve have been to for the whole family. Amazing vibes in the clinic. My daughter had a problem and had pain in her jaw. She couldn’t open her mouth properly, after going to Dr. Alaa my daughter is feeling much better now, she can move her jaw and he explained exactly what was the problem. Very understandable.

Lianne E. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Alaa Abdul-Maqsoud has been my dentist for 2 years now and i couldn’t be happier with any other dentist. He is always positive and keeps me relaxed and not worried. In my opinion they are the best dentistry. I recommend this dentist to everyone he is the best!

M. B. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


Being here is great because first of all, you don’t have to wait a long time to get in. It is very quick and it is very efficient. They always do a great job doing your teeth and making it white. If you ever need braces you should come here. Best dentist ever!!

Tommy E. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son is 15 now but has been coming here for years. I can safely say that he actually likes coming to the dentist because MAQSOUD always makes him laugh and he’s never had a bad experience. MAQSOUD is very knowledgeable and will let you know exactly what you need to do in order to have a great and healthy smile, albeit with a few jokes and good-natured teasing. The entire staff has always been very, very nice and makes you feel right at home. I would recommend MAQSOUD to anyone that needs a new dentist or is thinking of switching providers.

Jessica J. from Burbank, CA (Source: Google)


My family and I have been using maqsoud for about 2 decades now. I am now 26 and have been coming for almost 20 years myself. He is now and will remain the only dentist i can really trust. Hes very sweet fun and gentle. I can come in having a bad day with out him knowing and he can brighten uo the time that i have there. He’s always been someone i could look up to as well as Gina. Gina has been here even longer then ive been coming and she’s always been great and on top of appointments. Who likes to go to doctors i don’t but I can say I feel safe and comfortable in the chair at maqsouds. I know I’m in good hands and I’ve never had any problems here. I’m actually here today because of major tooth pain and even before they opened I left a message and the other receptionist nina called me back less then 5 minutes and I was able to get in. He has a pretty awesome staff in his office and I really cant complain. They are always greeting well no matter who you are and always clean as well. I havent been to every dentist but ive been in 2 handfulls of dentists most were media-cal but this genuine guy is by far the best and nothing could change that decision. Thank you for always being just a great office. It definitely takes halfthe stress off it really does. Its a small world afterall. One of these appointments we will go to Disneyland haha. Thankyou everyone at 508.

Kathy S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


There aren’t enough stars in the universe to rate the kind, gentle and skilled abilities of Dr. Maqsoud. I’ve been a patient of his for over two decades. Gentle and skilled; that’s all you need to know. The office is always clean and staff is always friendly. Gina keeps the business side running like a well oiled machine and has been with Maqsoud longer than I have been going to see him. I’ve never had an issue with billing, appointments, personalities or pain. Highly recommend!! …and the smile you see in the Yelp photo, is genuine. : )))

Ali E. from Newhall, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Maqsoud is amazing! Super friendly staff and always puts you and your wallet first- always feel like I can communicate when I am in pain and am never pushed into treatment I do not need. Highly recommend and as a bonus he is a super funny guy 🙂

Dr. Max has been our family dentist for over 20 years! He’s one of the most friendliest, funniest and compassionate people towards his staff and patients. Yet, he always maintains his professionalism. I would most definitely recommend him. You will never have to wait long. LOVE DR MAX!!!

Lorena P. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Max has been my dentist for over 30 years!! He is the best dentist of all times and would never change for anyone else. He puts 100% interest in his work and he has great friendly staff. Dr Max is friendly, funny and compassionate and pain-free. My mom introduced the whole family to him and I come all the way at from SIMI Valley, Ventura county to see him and i know that I’m in great hands!! I love Dr. Max!! He is awesome!!

Jacob N. from Napa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Dr. Alaa Abdel for more than 5 years now as my dentist. He’s great, funny, and appointments are always comfortable. Especially the anesthetic. No one is better at them than him. It’s always so localized and not like other dentists when my whole mouth is numb all day, is perfect. Now that I’m married my wife is coming to him as well and she loves coming here too. All of the staff are very friendly and helpful. We’ll be coming back for years more now too!

Suanne D. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Max is the best!!! I have been coming to him, ever since I moved to LA, 30 years ago!!! My parents have even gone to him, when they needed emergency dental work, on visits to the west coast! I wouldn’t go anywhere else!!!

Richard A. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot believe I haven’t written a Yelp review earlier for Dr. Max. He has been my dentist for over 25 years and is the ONLY dentist I will ever go to. His demeanor is one of a kind. He makes you feel so comfortable that you forget you’re having any kind of a procedure done. Every procedure I have ever had done has been painless. That is why I drive over 60 miles to see him. Like I said, I would never ever consider going to anyone else. If there was ever a dentist that deserves 5 stars, it would be him.
