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

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


I was in horrible pain, and I had been to this dentist in the past however, had not been able to go back due to switch of dental Ins. carrier. I was seen at Western Dental and they had me back and forth for almost 3 months amd weren’t able to figure out how to properly treat me. I decided to come here again and as soon as i came in they immediately took care of me just as i remembered the staff here is so compassionate and helpful! Dr Hwang’s years of expertice and knowledge cannot be mistaken, he immediately knew what was going on and put me out of my misery, and he did it with such ease and compassion, he has an awesome sense of humor to top it off and knows how to comfort you, he knew exactly what he was doing from the start. I am so glad to have been able to see him again, and i will not ever go anywhere else again!

Beatrice H. from San Mateo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hwang and his staff are always courteous and thorough. Even though I moved away from LA 5 years ago, I still make it a point to see him. I had no problem getting an appointment for an emergency root canal and crown. I was nervous about it but Christina the dental assistant eased my anxiety. She quickly took my xrays and got me ready for the dreaded root canal. The procedure was quick and painless. The  Angel Dental group has its own lab on site so I was able to get my crown made and fitted very quickly. Dr. Hwang called to check up on me the following day. I’m very happy with my result and thankful to this office

Arwen K. from Rowland Heights, CA (Source: Yelp)


I like the place because they have a huge selection of magazines in the lobby. Although the parking is a little inconvenient, i really like the clean and organized feeling when i enter the office. Even though the place looks expensive and luxurious (just like any koreatown dentistry), they are reasonably priced. When i got my whitening done, the female staff was really nice and constantly checked on me to make sure i was taken care of. After the laser whitening, i got a personalized whitening kit to use at home. Even though it was hard to find the parking structure, they validate for free all day, so i was able to grab lunch after. The office has been in the same location for a decade and i think they will be open for business for a long time

Sam K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever. got my braces here (at 25 years old) and Dr.Hwang kept me informed of every step of the process, charged a good price and made it an overall comfortable experience. I also got my wisdom teeth removed here. Their staff is friendly and know how to make you laugh when you’re in severe dental pain. Angel dental group for the win!

Christine K. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to many dentists before coming to Dr. Kent Hwang, and he’s by far the absolute best. Not only is he super friendly and proactive in discussing procedures/concerns at length until you’re comfortable, he’s very precise, careful and knowledgeable in procedures and takes utmost care to ensure it is as painless as possible. Not only that, he pays great attention to how it looks afterwards to make sure that it not only is the best quality work, but also looks great. The entire staff at Angel Dental group is extremely friendly and welcoming – in the 10+ years since I’ve been going to both locations (Torrance and LA), I have never had anything but an amazing and smooth experience. I’m a huge wuss for pain and was always terrified of the dentist, but Dr. Kent and Angel Dental Group has completely changed my perspective and erased my fears. For the record, I’ve had multiple, many procedures done with Dr. Kent (he’s redone and perfectly repaired a bad root canal job done by a previous horrible dentist, cavities, deep cleaning, crowns, onlays — I have bad teeth sorry), and they’ve all been very easy, surprisingly painless and smooth with no problems afterwards. Dr. Kent and Angel Dental group are the best. Lifesavers. There’s no one and no place else I would trust with my teeth!

Daniel Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been getting our dental care through this office for several years.  We are very satisfied with all aspects of their office.  Their staff are very friendly and accommodating, Dr. Hwang is not only highly skilled, but is very personable, caring, and trustworthy.  I would not hesitate to recommend Angel Dental Group to anyone seeking expert care and a friendly touch

Crystal L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I needed to get my wisdom teeth extracted, and my friend recommended Dr. Hwang. My procedure was oral surgery– my wisdom teeth were laying on its sides and still in the gums. I got all 4 wisdom teeth extracted, and Dr. Hwang made the very scary procedure as comfortable as possible for me. He explained everything as he was going to do it and ensured the whole process was quick and painless!


Nancy K. from Castro Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Glad that they have this location open during this quarantine period.. had my dental done before all this and sutures from that time was starting to bother me and Torrance location has been closed for the time being,  so it was great that they were able to see me to remove the suture and continue my treatment i needed.. will be back as long as they are still open

Claire Y. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to be dragged to this dentist with my uncle and cousins for their appointments all the time when I was younger. Recently, my wisdom teeth were bothering me because they were growing out so I decided to stop by this dentist to see if they were able to extract them. I walked in and was greeted by the most amazing staff ever, they told me that it was very much possible to extract them in a breeze. I made my appointment for the end of the week. Coming in at the time of my appointment, I was feeling very nervous about the whole process. They took my x-ray and had me fill out some forms, since I am still a first time patient. Once I met the doctor, Dr. Kent Hwang, he made sure to reassure me that it was going to go smooth and I had nothing to worry about. Honestly this was my favorite “dentist experience”, he extracted two of my wisdom teeth within 15 minutes.. 15 MINUTES!! This guy makes miracles happen! This is the place to come to not only for wisdom teeth, but for everything!!

Arthur L. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was looking for a dentistry that accepts my dental insurance and also opens on Saturdays. When I called for the first time to make an appointment, the receptionist asked for my insurance and told me that she would call back to confirm the appointment. She called back really soon (in less than thirty minutes) and told me that my insurance is accepted and confirmed the appointment for last Saturday at 3pm. At the visit they took detailed xrays of my teeth and checked for cavities. I also had my wisdom tooth extracted at the visit, along with treatment for a cavity. The place was packed with people waiting to see the doctor  and I totally understand that they were busy because it was a Saturday afternoon. Overall my experience at Angel dental group was superb and beyond what I would normally expect from a dentistry in koreatown

David G. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


I have dental insurance through medi-cal, and my assigned dentist did not have any appointments available when I needed to go, so I came to Angel Dental as a cash patient. They took exceptionally good care of me. I was concerned about my teeth yellowing, but I was  hesitant to bleach them. The dentist said that my staining was external and could be removed with a simple cleaning. Then she did the cleaning herself!! I have never been to a dental practice where the dentist herself was kind enough to do the cleaning! It was the most thorough cleaning I’ve ever had in my life and I left with shining white teeth again, no bleach necessary. The outside of the building and the sidewalks near the office are really dirty and there are sometime homeless people hanging out on the block, but don’t be mistaken- this office is immaculately clean and the staff are top-notch professionals

Sharon L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Started going here since last year and I was so happy with everything. Wish I knew about this place before. Dr. Kent Hwang is my favorite. He is the best and I can always depend on him. I went to take all 4 of my wisdom teeth out and I was very scared, but he made me feel comfortable and in the end, nothing hurt. I would highly recommend this place for any treatments. The receptionist are all very nice, especially Chrissy. Definitely going back

Theresa V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love, love, love this dentist.  I had an issue with an implant that fell out and got infected and my dentist recommended Angel Dental Group. Not only did they alleviate the infection but he saved the implant as well! All staff here are very professional and welcoming and use the latest technology from the minute you see your name posted on the welcome sign to when you walk out the door. They even have a space for you to brush your teeth stocked with toothpaste, floss and toothbrush is available to purchase if necessary. I felt like I had been coming to this office for years! I highly recommend!

David Wooram S. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kent Hwang is uncle-like most-friendly DDS ever! Very organized office with great young generation mind clinics, technicians providing the best supportive service and guides making me & my wife’s healthy smile! I would like, love to spread the words about him to all friends out there looking for right DDS! Just share the word ‘Wooram’ sent you there~ he will start with the brightest smile on you and supporting your healthy smile. And… don’t be scared for your treatment LOL

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


I’ve been taking my daughter to Angel Dentist thanks to my cousin who’s also been going since she was a kid. All the staff and dr’s are all so nice and polite! Staff members always makes sure to accommodate to your needs and convenience. All the dr’s knows how much ppl hate going to the dentist so they make sure to give the least amount of pain as possible. I highly recommend Angel dental office if anyone is looking for a new dentist!

Steve C. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


As much as I hate going to the dentist, the experience I have at Angel Dentistry makes it more than tolerable. Dr. Kent is the nicest guy with the best demeanor. He makes everyone feel at ease and is very caring throughout the procedures. I’ve gotten implants, root canals and done all the preventative care through here. I’ll never go anywhere else. I highly recommend it for anyone squeamish (or not) about going to the dentist

Theresa V. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hwang and his staff always do such an amazing job! I do not say this lightly as I have a medical diagnosis of panic and anxiety disorder. The staff and Dr. we’re very attentive and followed my cues to make sure I was comfortable as can be. (After all, I was having a failed implant from another dentist removed. So, as comfortable as I could be.) Afterward, Dr. Hwang took the time to explain and show me photos of how it went and why the first implant had failed.  This dentist and staff are amazing! I highly recommend!

I absolutely love this Doctor. I love him so much that I pay out of pocket since they don’t accept my cheap insurance. I was 30 min early today for brackets removal and retainers.. I was in and out by the time it was my actual appointment time. Thank you Staff and Dr

Melina Paez (Source: Google)


I have never felt more comfortable at the dentist’s office. Angel Dentistry has been nothing short of professional, kind and trustworthy. They’re attentive and don’t make you feel like just another patient. Before coming here, I went to another office to get checked out for braces. Instead, I got a quote for cleaning, antibiotics, told that I had cavities and it came out to over $1000. I went for a second opinion at Angel Dentistry. Cleaning was covered by insurance, no need for antibiotics, and zero cavities. And I got a benign lesion removed which has healed wonderfully. I can’t thank you enough. xoxo, Melina

Michelle R. from Pasadena, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for a first time  wisdom tooth extraction and I Highly recommend this place! Dr Hwang and his staff were very nice and reassuring when I came in ( as it was my first time and many of my coworkers told me their stories.). He told me the procedure step by step and took them out clean and painlessly. The whole procedure took about 20 mins and I was able to go back to work and eat within that same day

Dolly R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Me and my entire family have been here for many years. This is the best Dentist Office you can find. They’re staff is high qualified and the place is beyond regular standards. It’s super neat, everything is well organized and clean. You can trust them on any dental treatment you need. I was very scared of dental visits until I met the Angel Dental Group. Everybody here makes you feel like family. Please come visit. I’m sure you won’t regret and your dentist visits  are always gonna be fun to schedule

Caroline C. from Orland Park, IL (Source: Yelp)


I go to Angel dentistry to get the routine cleaning and check up done every six months. The doctors are really nice and they speak fluent English and Korean, so I can communicate with them thoroughly and easily in both languages. The staff there are really nice, and the receptionists are extremely polite. I feel that the service at this office is well worth the money because they take about ten xrays per visit and actually show and explain to me about my oral condition. I have been to many other dentists in los angeles and orange county, but this place has me coming back for two years now. I would recommend this place to anybody that wants to get good quality dental services

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


I have been going to this dentistry since last year. Even though I haven’t made a visit to a dental office for about seven years until last year, I didn’t have any cavities and only needed a deep cleaning. This place has a gum-expert who does cleaning at a special level. So for the same amount of money I choose to come to this office rather than other offices in koreatown because of the cleaning specialist. The atmosphere at the office is nice with kpop music playing and lots of staff welcoming you everytime. I live in orange county and have to drive 30 minutes to get there, but I do it because it’s worth it

Clinton L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Angel Dental Group provides amazing dental care and esthetic services. I love drinking tea and coffee, but have been trying to get off the caffeinated fix and to get a fresh start I wanted to whiten my teeth. I was worried about all the stuff people say about in office whitening and how the sensitivity lasts quite a long time. I was reassured by the dental staff that the temporary post whitening sensitivity wouldn’t be that bad and to avoid cold and hot drinks for a few days. I have to say for just an hour and a half session, I love them! My teeth aren’t too bright and they’ve lost that yellow hue, yes my teeth were sensitive but it was worth it! Other than whitening, I’ve got a few cavities filled and my cousin has got a few crowns done as well over the past month, and the crowns look beautiful! Dr. Hwang, the owner, was telling me about his lab and the reasons he started it and I couldn’t believe he owned his own dental lab too. I know Angel Dental Group also has practices on Wilshire and in Torrance, but this is the closest location for me. Dr. Lee and Dr. Hwang have both provided dental care for me and they are so awesome. They always take a minute to ask me about my day and how I’m doing, just really fun guys. They work quick and I never feel uneasy or get that white coat syndrome. They definitely seem to know what they’re doing and I trust them. If I ever need an implant or any additional dental care I would definitely come back to Angel Dental Group. I want to get a cleaning around March as they say it’s best to get cleanings every 6 months – year. I have a few events I need to attend at the beginning of the year and want my smile to be shining bright. I will review the dental hygienists at that point

Eunice L. from Sylmar, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My whole family has been coming here since my kids were in elementary school and in braces. They are in their twenties and have their own insurance plans but still pay out of pocket to come here for their exams and cleaning. Dr. Hwang and his staff are that good! When we have a concern, Dr. Hwang and the staff listen and address it during the exams. The staff is very friendly, compassionate, and professional. The ladies at the front desk are on top of their game and keep me updated about my appointments. I have nothing but good words to say about Angel Dental Group and have always recommended them to my friends and family!

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


I’ve gotten everything done here from cleaning, filling, root canal, and even dental implants (ouch). This place has friendly staff, skilled dentists, free validated parking which is why I’ve referred a lot of family and friends here. They’re open 6 days a week which makes it easier to make appointments. Yes, there are a lot of dentists out there, but I highly recommend Angel as it has been around for years with reputable skills

Hector L. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just a few of days ago, I found myself making an appointment to see a dentist. It’s something I’d never done before. Moreover, for a doubt/discomfort/ question type visit rather than the usual dentist visit where my dental health is in deep jeopardy. That would be because after 4 visits to this office, one of which being a 2.5 hour surgery, I’ve started to feel confident that these people put my heart and fears before all else. Dentist or otherwise, if you find yourself in front of people like these, you trust them with your life and you never let them go. Needless to say everyone in this office that I’ve encountered is severely competent as well

Deeds D. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Me and my entire family have been here for many years. This is the best Dentist Office you can find. They’re staff if high qualified and the place is beyond regular standards. You can trust them on any dental work you need. I was very scared of dental visits until I met the Angel Dental Group. Everybody here makes you feel like family. Please come visit. I’m sure you won’t regret and your dentist visits  are always gonna be fun to schedule

First off, endless applause to to all the lovely looking ladies working their butts off in the front room until late evening! You guys are on top of your shit and super welcoming at the same time. The face that you guys are open till 8pm some nights is unreal and extremely nice for people like myself who work late. The waiting room itself is in top condition, super clean, and comfortable. Also nice to see all the certificates all the wall to ensure you that you’re being dealt with by a dentist with plenty of credentials. Now for the juicy part. The X rays where super quick and smooth haha the technician was direct, quick, and nice, thanks dude! Now to patient room with the lovely music of my choice (they let you pick your own music while you wait ) the assistant set me up and we had a causal conversation about the x rays of my teeth. He totally knew his stuff and called out the cavity I had before the doctor came in. Dental assistant for now, but not for long haha The doctor (forgot his name) shortly came in after the assistant left along with Caroline (super pretty assistant/coordinator) and gave me the news. I had a cavity and a featured tooth in which they immediately told me the best steps to fix them before they worsen. Not only did they explain what needs to be done, but were straight up about the financials, insurance coverage, and other options. I felt like I was in good hands and being helped by an establishment that wasn’t focused on purely making money, but making sure the patient is aware of everything. Definitely my best experience at the dentist! Thanks again for staying open late and catering to those 9-5 workers! Thanks again!

My favorite dentist! I’ve had a few dentist in my time and they are the best. I now live an hour away with LA traffic and I still commute in just to see them. They are reasonable, fair, patient and dont try to rip you off or give you treatments you don’t need. They do a great job with implants and chipped tooth as well. My teeth are happy because of them

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


I used to be pretty scared going to the dentist for general work, but Angel Dental Group has completely changed that perspective. Dr. Hwang is an amazing dentist and is thorough with his work. Before even starting any procedure, he’ll go over all the options you have, review any sort of risk involved and give you solid recommendations based on your situation. He’s even accommodated me on short notice (I’m talking seeing me within an hour) when I’ve had issues with my teeth. Dr. Hwang is extremely knowledgeable in his craft and I highly recommend him for any dentistry needs

Steve B. from Lansing, MI (Source: Yelp)


I had to have an emergency tooth extraction. At 7pm I was in excruciating pain. I called the office and they were open late and agreed to see me last minute. The staff was amazing, helping to get me in while they stayed after the office had closed to make sure I was taken care of. I was very worried about experiencing pain but the dentist took great care of me without sedation. I was pleasantly surprised. Great experience, all things considered

Katie J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Angel Dentistry is most reasonable in price and service out of all other dental office I have been to in K town.  Their staff is so kind and comforting. Especially their manager Kris was just simply amazing how she explained treatment and cost so easy to understand.  I didn’t have to worry about being ripped off with Kris unlike other dental offices how they make you pay for unnecessary treatments I’m not aware of.  Dr. Hwang is professional, patient and even funny.  Best dentist experience ever

Laura X. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Angel Dentistry for 14 yrs. and I LOVE Dr. Hwang, Sue (dental hygienist) & the rest of his staff…!  Dr. Hwang is professional, patient, friendly, and thorough and even takes time to see how you have been in the last 6 months!  He uses a kid glove during the treatments and is careful that you are comfortable and not feeling any pain.  Sue is the best– she leaves my teeth spotless — and I actually look forward to going in to get my teeth cleaned.  I worked in the same building that Angel Dentistry is located in and when I moved jobs…you guessed it, I chose to drive from the WLA to Koreatown because no one else touches my teeth.  Nice office, variety of magazines, staff who remembers you and where you traveled last summer, and even a blankie if you need it.  They are the best!  Wish I could give them 10 stars!

Jonathan A. from Central LA, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is an excellent dentist to go to. They have really good customer service 10/10 and the wait is short. The people in the front counter will make sure you are helped as soon as possible. This dentist is a good place to go and get ur teeth either worked on etc. Overall this is a good dentist with good service and they can get the job done
