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

Alison G. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am very please with this dentist.  I made an appointment here to get a second opnion on my teeth.  Earlier that week I had seen Askari with Media District Dentistry and Braces and was told by him that I needed a deep cleaning and had 8 cavities.  Since it turned out he wasn’t in my dental network and would have maxed out my $1,500 dental coverage with 6 fillings costing me $1,200 for the rest of the work he said I needed I decided to get a second opnion in my dental network. I am so glad I got a second opinion (and so is my wallet).  Not only did they check right away if I needed a deep cleaning when I asked (I didn’t) but they also very friendly.  While the cleaning hurt a bit more then it probably should have I was just happy to get one as the other place insisted I needed a deep cleaning.   Then Dr. Ananian came in and told me that the film x-rays from the other dentist weren’t very good and asked if he could have digitial x-rays.  I asked how much that would cost since I had just got xrays done and knew my insurance wouldn’t cover another set.  He went and got the price and made me a deal, he said that if they do the digital xrays and it turned out I had 8 cavities then he would not charge me for the xrays, otherwise it would cost me about $110. I said fine, I figured even if it turned out I only had 6 they’d already saved me a lot more money by insisting I didn’t need a deep cleaning.  Dr. Ananian could have said I had 5 cavities or 7 and got me to pay for the xrays and got the money for doing the fillings.  But no.  He told me I had NO cavities, just one tooth he wants to keep an eye on. It is so nice finding an honest dentist.  Dr. Ananian gains nothing by telling me I had no cavities other than gaining a patient (and if I can refer people to him I will). Plus he’s a Star Trek fan, which my inner geek loves.

One of the best dentist’s offices in the valley. All the staff are friendly and caring and the doctors are as well. Not the type of place that will try to up sell you on every service. They truly tell you what you need and give you options to consider. Highly recommended!

Brooke D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


IT has been a delight to go to Ananian Dental group. They are kind and thoughtful. I just recieved a birthday post card from them. I first went in on a Saturday as an emergency patient. He saw me right away and calmed my nerves. I had been told that I needed a lot of work done years ago and having many bad experiences in the dental offices I stopped going to the dentist until one Saturday morning. The pain was so bad that I had to go in.
Dr. Ananian was so sweet and caring. He noitced how scared I was to be there. He talked to me and explained everything to me. First of all, I didn’t need all the work that I was told I had to get done. Second of all, he gave me a very generous discount. The office was so sweet that they didn’t collect money from me. They didn’t know me but I left without paying that day. When I called them back to ask for a discount I was given a great one and I was told I could pay a very small amount monthly. Dr. Ananian called me back to make sure I was doing Ok. He really does take his time with you. I have been there several times already and I have to tell you that he is as patient as the times before. He knows that any dental noise frightens me so he hands me my headphones so I can listen to music. I mean there’s TV there too but I prefer not to hear any noise. After he is done with a procedure, he still talks to me and tells me what to look for and explains everything all over again if I need him to do that. I can’t stress enough what a good doctor he is and a great human being. His hours are great because they start from 7am! Also, his office is clean and very organized. The staff is sweet and they are as caring as their boss. Dr. Ananian treats his employees very well and I like seeing that. They seem like they are very happy to be working there. That’s a big plus for me. He is very generous with the supplies he gives you. I often ask for toothbruhes/paste  for my kids and husband and they always give me extra goody bags Also, their toy chest is one that I have never seen before. They have awesome toys for kids and books!!!!!!! His waiting room is full of magazines and something that I have never seen before. They have books for kids and interesting fact books for kids and adults. It is an experience to go there. All the doctors are great but Dr. Ananian is my favorite. I have never written this long about a place but I have never felt so strongly about a dental office or a doctor. He is on call all the time and I have heard he shows up on Sundays if a patient needs him to come in. Our whole office adores him and I know why. I totally recommend this place.

Dr. Ananian has been my primary dental provider for the past 10 years and I am very happy with the service of he and his staff. He is always personable, welcoming, and thoughtful about what is necessary to keep my teeth and gums healthy.

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


Both my husband and I switched over to Dr. Ananian after going to our previous dentist who was recommending unnecessary, expensive procedures.  We are so happy with the way Dr. Ananian has treated us.  He is honest, informative, and helpful.  So far, all of our visits have been pleasant and pain free.  There is never a wait at his office although there are many patients being seen.  The place is clean and the staff is professional.  When my husband needed a specialist, Dr. Ananian referred him to an wonderful surgeon.  We are both going to stay with Dr. Ananian for a long time and I will recomemnd him to anyone who wants a great dentist.

I have had a fear of the dentist since I have been a young boy. Dr. Ananian has made my visits very comfortable for me. He listens and takes his time. I never feel like he wants to do a quick job and let me go. He is very friendly and a calm person. He has saved me a lot of money over the years. He returns his phone calls and is on call on the weekends. If I have had an emergency, they take me the day of without any problems. The work he does is the best that I have seen. His office is always super clean which is a must for me. He is a very generous doctor and the toothbrush,paste and floss you get at the end is an added bonus. Hope he never retires. I recommed Dr. Ananian to all my friends and family.

The best dentist and staff. You can tell not only Dr. Ananian is an awesome dentist but a kind human being. His employees love and admire him. He’s a true gentleman and a patient doctor. My kids love going to this office and of course love all the goodies they receive. My husband used to have a phobia when it came to anything dental, but feels at ease with Dr. Ananian.

Mary A. from Downtown, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


We are SO happy with Dr. Ananian and his staffs service. My son was nervous to get his teeth checked but they sent us a children’s dentist book to read beforehand and once we got there everyone made him feel so comfortable. They gave both him and his little sister toys and light up toothbrushes. The professionalism and thorough check/cleaning while making it “fun” is so appreciated. Thank you Ananian Dental for making the whole experience a positive one. We can’t wait to go back!

Stephanie B. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going to them for more than 10 years I absolutely LOVE going to the dentist. Yes, you read that correct; I look forward to my appointments. This group is professional and amazing. They never do anything more than they need to. I found them after another place lied and said that I needed thousands of dollars of work–which I knew was BS–so I went to these guys in 2006 and have been going twice a year ever since. I don’t have dental insurance either and they are super affordable.

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


I used to dread going to the dentist office, but with Dr. Ananian it’s always a pleasant visit. I get my teeth cleaned by Vergine who’s thorough, gentle, and keeps me comfortable. Dr. Ananian takes time to check my teeth and explain things to me. Highly recommend!

Awwno O. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is wonderful, I’m not much for visiting the dentist. Every time I go I get bad news so I guess not going as often as needed and bad news come hand in hand. I give this place a 5 star, although I do have a few issues and was anticipating pain (I hate pain) dr Ananian was virtually painless. I hardly noticed him pricking my mouth with a needle the size of my arm … I even waited for some pressure pain so I can flinch a little like “no please stop” but I felt NOTHING! Aside from the lack of pain I’m really impressed with his work my tooth looks great if feels firm he did exactly what I wanted gave me straight forward logical advice. Also no wait. Yes a lot of places always make me wait even with an appointment , not here they take patients in timely matter. Impressed.

Ast G. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Ananian is the sweetest dentist. He’s kind, caring and has so much patience. He doesn’t over diagnose and takes his time with you . He answers all your questions and explains everything throughly. He does Invisalign which is a huge plus. I totally recommend him. His staff is great and very helpful. It’s odd to actually love going to the dentist but I do with Dr. Ananian !

Wendy O. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


My neighbor recommended Dr. Ananian a few years ago.  I’m sure glad I got that referral.  I had been traveling to West Covina for a gentle dentist there.  I’m not much for Dentists, so it’s not high on my list.  Dr. Ananian and his staff are kind and gentle. He’s also an ‘artist’.  I needed fillings on two front teeth that would be visible and their ability to color match my teeth was nothing short of amazing.  I’m impressed with this group.  I wish I had found them 20 years ago.Try them, you won’t be sorry.

Amy D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This guy is the bomb! I am very hard on dentists and doctors and it has taken me a very long time to find a dentist that I like going to. Dr. Ananian and all of this assistants are AMAZING. They are gentle and instead of criticizing problem areas on your teeth, they show you where they are and how to improve them. They are always friendly and never judgmental. They are also incredible accommodating schedule-wise. I have been a loyal patient for almost 2 years and have recommended him to a number of friends who also love him!

Annie Minassian-Leigh (Source: Facebook)


He’s a sweetheart for all ages. He doesn’t shove treatment plans down your throat and saves you money. He’s very conservative when diagnosing and does really well with patients with phobias. He’s awesome with kids and so loving ! The office is clean and organized. Love this dental office !!!! I

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


Dr. Arbi Ananian is a fantastic dentist . He’s friendly and compassionate . I would recommend him to the world. He’s office is organized and clean. Everybody is friendly and he tries to save you money. He’s absolutely the best and if you have any type of a phobia he’s the dentist for you . And it’s a plus that he does Invisalign !

Kelly Roberts (Source: Google)


Dr Ananian is amazing! His staff is very professional and the office is clean and very organized. It is very easy to get in touch with on the weekends and I know he works on Saturdays but if you have pain in the middle of the night you call his emergency phone and he calls you back. Also, I did Invisalign with him and I am very happy with the end results he is caring, sweet and very knowledgeable. I would totally recommend him to everybody. If you have any type of dental phobia, he is the doctor to see.

Sharise B. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr.Ananian’s office a year ago, and since then I have been very satisfied with Dr.Ananian and his staff.  The receptionist Aida is always very pleasant and greets you with a warm smile.  She will even provide a courteous phone call reminding you of your appointment.  Dr.Ananian is very thorough and provides simple explanations regarding any treatments that you may be in need of.  Dr.Ananian is very honest and will not recommend a treatment you are not in need of just so that he can gain a profit.  My eight year old looks forward to selecting a toy from the toy chest after his appointment.  Best of all Dr.Ananian’s office offers Saturday appointments is a huge convenience for a busy, working parent such as myself.

Lori G. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ananian is our family’s dentist and we all just LOVE him! he is super good with kids and my 3 year old loves going for her visits. My husband and I are also patients of Dr Ananian and are huge fans. He is very kind and gentle and truly understands that not everyone likes/or is afraid to go to the dentist and makes each visit super comfortable and as enjoyable as possible. He is very personable and explains everything very well and in great detail. I recommend Dr Ananian to everyone who is searching for a new dentist. The staff at Ananian Dental group is super kind and easy to deal with….very professional.

Best dental office in The Valley. Have been going to them for over 16 years, since they were partnered with Dr Carlson. My children ages 14, 12 have been going there since age 3. I live in the Santa Clarita valley, so it’s quite a drive for me, but the kids Do Not want to go anywhere else. They are kind, compassionate and extremely competent. It’s worth the long commute .

Sarah R. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


A rare gem in the dental field – this dental office is friendly, honest, & not interested in fleecing you.  They just want you to have a healthy mouth!  They are conservative in their assessment of cavities (in other words, they won’t try to fill all your kid’s baby teeth just so they can make money,) & they don’t push you into procedures you don’t need.  Dr. Ananian is very gentle & straight forward, & yesterday, Denise cleaned my teeth, & she is THE MOST GENTLE hygienist I have ever had clean my teeth!  She was so gentle, I didn’t realized she had started.  I could uncurl my toes & loosen my white-knuckle grip on my hands, because I knew she wasn’t going to scrape me death, causing me to bleed-out from my gums.  *whew* Before I came to this dental group, I had not been to a dentist in over a decade.  But when my bridge fell out, I had to go somewhere.  I was desperate, & 1800Dentist recommended I go to another dental office.  All I wanted was a temporary fix until I got some referrals from friends for a good dentist.  While this other dentist helped me with my bridge, he also told me I had 8 cavities & needed 2 root canals…  Needless to say, I wanted a second opinion.  Many friends recommended Ananian Dental group (formerly Carlson Dental Group.)  When Dr. Ananian’s assessment of my oral health did NOT include cavities or necessary root canals, I asked him about it.  He replied, only if I wanted those things 😉  Dr. Ananian saved me about $4500 & much, much grief.  I knew I could trust him.  I also take my kids here to see Dr. Esrailian.  My kids have never been fearful of the dentist, because the staff are so gentle & sweet.  Not to mention the toy chest 😉 While going to the dentist is not on my list of things I LOVE to do, at least I know I can go somewhere trustworthy & helpful.

Kaitlin R. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the most clean, honest and organized dental place I have been to. Dr. Ananian is a wonderful dentist who takes his time with his patients. He answered all my questions, returned all my phone calls and suggested less work and less money than I had been told I needed. Not only I saved a lot of money but also got the best care. I recommend this place to everyone now.

Sheila O. from Stevenson Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ananian has been my awesome dentist for countless years!! (I lost count since he took over from the other dentist who has a practice out of state now. I think I have gone to that location for 17 years now.) He is such an amazing dentist that I drive from Santa Clarita to see him. He is honest, very caring and always professional. I always have been nervous to see any doctor, let among a dentist, but Dr. Ananian specializes in working with patients like me who get nervous so that I feel comfortable. My last visit for a cleaning on April 10th was so positive that I knew I needed to write this review. The staff was so welcoming and understanding since I need later afternoon appointments or Saturday appointments to avoid missing work, if possible. They greeted me upon my arrival in a friendly demeanor and wished me well when I left. My dental hygienist took the time to let me know step by step what was happening during my cleaning. Then my consultation with Dr. Ananian was thorough yet painless plus done before I knew it. I have had to get root canals and other work that can be more than one visit, but Dr. Ananian makes sure to guide me in the process. If he is not able to do the procedure, he calls in top notch specialists to his office. The specialists are always professional, caring and guide me through the process, too. I have had to call Dr. Ananian with questions to feel more comfortable with different procedures and he will personally call me back or relay answers to staff to tell me. He truly cares about his patients by having open communication and being very positive. He is a preferred dentist with my insurance. 6 stars

Dr. Ananian has been our family dentist for a few years now and we couldn’t be happier! He’s restored my husband’s faith in dentists, my husband hadn’t been to the dentist in 20 years! He’s extremely knowledgeable, gentle, and kind. If you want someone you can trust, I wouldn’t look further!

Elia H. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


We feel so fortunate to have found Dr. Ananian and his wonderful team. My son and daughter had their appointments last week. Everyone was so friendly and explained every step to my kids. They helped them feel comfortable and cared for. After their appointments, they got to chose a toy! Plus they each received a little bag with a tooth brush and tooth paste. Today my husband and I had our appointments. We decided to take all 3 of our kids and take turns getting our teeth cleaned. While I was getting my teeth cleaned and x-rays done, the office receptionist gave the kids some toys to play with and take home! Dr. Ananian has been the friendliest and most attentive dentist that I’ve been too. He answers all my questions and was very informative. After I came out, my husband went in. Not only was everyone already so friendly to us, but they made us feel so comfortable and not embarrassed that we had brought our three children with us. No one tries to push on getting procedures that are not needed. We have found our forever dentist.

Darwin D. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


We went on a hunt trying to find a good dentist that could take care of our family, then through much research we found these guys. We are so happy we found this place. There is nothing fancy about it, there’s no eye gouging on services, just good old fashion customer service. Come try them for yourself.

Brenda E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been nothing but pleased coming here.  Dr. Ananian made me feel very comfortable and not only did he listen to my concerns but also was very honest and gave me all my options. He’s very professional and took good care with me. The rest of the staff was very friendly too. Leslie the receptionist was sweet and made me laugh. She was able to work with my schedule for my next appointment and gave me a reminder. I’m so glad I found this place.

Robert K. from Westlake Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


I never thought I’d write a review of a dentist, but this guy is a gem. I usually go to Dr Rosen in Canoga Park, but I always felt like I was in the presence of a used car salesman.  Apparently I’m not alone from the reviews. So I chipped my tooth, and needed a dentist, FAST.  A friend recommended Dr. Ananian, and after a pleasant phone call with the staff (“You have a chipped tooth?  Let me talk to the doc for a second and see how fast i can get you in here.”), I was sert with my appointment. Staff was polite, professional, and had great personality.  The doc was calm, in no rush, and explained everything to me.  Front tooth chipped, so he explained what he could do now (basic fill), and what could be done in the future (veneer).  Explained cost, pros and cons, how long I could expect it to last.   No pressure, no upsell, no rush to get me in and out.  Just a genuine concern for the patient.  Sat with me after and asked how I felt, if I had any questions, etc. This is my new dentist.  End of Story.  =)

Jim M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really enjoy this place.  I started visiting Dr Arbi after a gap of 10 years and he and his staff were superb in their treatments.  I am 64 years old and tend to ramble on in my conversations, the staff laughed at my poor attempt of comedy with Dr Ananian trading barbs with me.  They made my time there a pleasant experience.

Linda B. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I heard about Dr Ananian from a friend at work.  I was unhappy with my previous dentist and felt I was being taken advantage of and was receiving unnecessary workd which resulted in a lot of out of pocket expense.  In addition I am somewhat of a chicken when it comes to dental work. I was pleasantly surprised and happy with my experience with Dr. Ananian.  He is gentle and does not try to have me do any unnecessary work.  All of his staff is helpful whenever I am there or if I call with a question they are happy to assist. Last year Dr Ananian had to refer me to an oral surgeon for a procedure.  Since I no longer live in Burbank he took his time to find me a surgeon in my area so I would feel comfortable.  Even though I do not live in Burbank any longer I have no intention of changing dentists as have now found one that make me comfortable.I highly recommend Dr. Ananian if you are looking for a dentist that is looking out for your needs and not his.  In addition his receptionist makes every effort to make your appointments at your convenience.   Linda B

Annette D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t know why my review was removed but for what it’s worth I’m going to try again.  I went to Dr. Ananian to get my teeth whitened initially, back in 2007.  Even though I was extremely sensitive to the procedure (low pain tolerance) the Dr. did everything possible to make me feel relaxed.  I still go there twice a year to get my teeth cleaned, nothing major, his staff always does the cleaning but he always does a final consult before I walk out the door. He’s got the BEST sense of humor which is so rare to find these days in anyone much less a Dentist.  He’s just such a nice person and he’s not going to BS you just to get your money. He’s a gem.
