My wife has been going to this office for several years, and she raved about it even more after it changed ownership, so now I have my appointments here, too. I have seen both Dr. Thai and Janet for several visits since Oct. 2014. I am very impressed by the sights as well as the smells and sounds (classical music playing – nice), and Maria at the front desk has been very courteous, helpful, and patient in reviewing both of our plans and how it relates to insurance coverage. I needed to have a deep cleaning, split into 2 appointments for each side of my mouth. Janet did one side and Dr. Thai did the other. For that level of procedure, I have never had it be so painless at any other dentist. They are both great at putting you at ease, and they check in frequently to make sure you’re not in any pain. Both they and the other staff in the room have a great chemistry to know, for example, with me making a slight gesture that I need to swallow or use the “saliva sucker upper.” I am also impressed by their equipment – you can tell they want to have the latest and best to give detailed info to their patients and have accurate, up to date records on file. I needed to monitor how my gums were doing after the deep cleanings, and they quickly pulled up an overall “before and after” for all teeth to let me know about trouble areas. Finally, I love that their rooms have big windows that face the mountains and the Santa Anita racetrack. Very picturesque, allowing you to forget where you are. This is a clean office with knowledgeable and capable staff – one that works to ensure that care plans will be carried out smoothly for both your schedule and your wallet. Five stars are not enough for Arcadia Dentaldontics.

I LOVE Yelp, it’s my go to source for everything. However I don’t usually write many reviews, but when I find something so wonderful I can’t help but to share. I will be honest, I’m scared to go to the dentist. The sound of the equipment makes me nervous and cringe, but I do go regularly to keep up with my dental hygiene/health. I’ve been to my fair shares of dentists and I know how hard it is to find a good dentist. Fortunately, there is a new dental group in the building where I work. I was referred to them by my co-worker.  Dr. Michael Thai is the general dentistMy first impression of the office was that the staff was very friendly and made me feel very comfortable.  When I sat down for my first appointment, I immediately noticed the wonderful view outside the window of the San Gabriel Mountains. It was a pleasant distraction and helped me feel more at ease. On my first visit, I met with Janet, the dental hygienist, she took some X-rays of my teeth. Janet was friendly and very informative. I found out that I had been brushing incorrectly this whole time. She showed me how to properly brush & how to floss the hard to reach areas in the back. As I mentioned, I’ve been to many dentists, but this was the first time anyone showed me the proper way to brush. Then I met Dr. Thai, he took a look at my X-rays and then he checked my teeth. Dr. Thai was very thorough, patient and very nice, which is very important to me since I was a bit nervous. I had mentioned to Dr. Thai that I had worn braces in the past, but that my teeth moved back after many years. He said that Dr. Julie Whang is an orthodontist and that he would have her take a look. Dr. Whang came in for a consultation and examined my teeth. She was very informative, friendly and gentle. She told me that if I don’t continue to wear my retainers that eventually teeth will move back. What?! It would have been nice if my previous orthodontist would have informed me of this very pertinent information. So many years have passed, so it’s too late to go back and question my previous orthodontist.  when I sleep, so my teeth don’t move anymore. I have insurance, but I was still a bit worried that the retainers would be a lot out of pocket. Surprisingly pricing was very affordable. I’ve been to my share of dentists, but Arcadia Dentaldontics was different. Dr. Thai was not like the other dentists. I wasn’t just another patient and they weren’t just trying to make a quick buck. They were very professional, thorough, honest and they truly cared about my dental health. I’m so glad my co-worker recommended them to me. I now have a wonderful dentist and orthodontist that make me feel very comfortable and so I don’t feel so intimidated or anxious when I go to the dentist anymore. And I won’t be visiting any OTHER dentists in the future, I’ve found my dentists.

I have been with going to this dental clinic for over twenty years and have seen at least two times in change of ownership. Despite of change of management, the quality of service remain superb. Janet is an amazing hygienist. You’ll find her friendly, an experienced expert and does a real thorough job of cleaning. Dr Thai is really a friendly expert in dentistry.  Coming out of this dental office I always feel like getting a new bill of health. I really recommend this dental office to anyone.

Chris K. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend this dentist. They cost a little more than other dentists, but are much better and worth the higher cost. They have new equipment and the staff are knowledgable and very good at explaining medical facts to laymen. They are friendly, trustworthy, and do their best to help you. I had an accident at work where I had the half of my front two teeth knocked out. I called this dentist immediately after the accident and they moved their appointments around to accommodate me and see me same day within 3 hours of my accident. They repaired my teeth and now my front teeth are as good as new. Thanks! They also surprised me by showing me that I had a condition where a bone in my jaw on one side was longer than the other causing issues in my bite. Something that no other dentist had noticed and explained to me. Edit: After my accident, workers comp wanted me to provide alot of paperwork from the dentist so I could get reimbursed. I brought the paperwork over to Arcadia Dentaldontics and they filled everything out for me! Saved me $1,200. Thank you!

Evangelyn L. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai is far and away the most genuinely caring dentist I have encountered.  He is patient, highly knowledgeable, and considerate.  I’ve been to many dentists over the years due to my problematic teeth, but now that I’ve found Dr. Thai, my search for the “right” dentist has ended. My boyfriend and my boyfriend’s father are both patients of Dr. Thai and they insisted that I visit him after my previous dentist performed a root canal on the wrong tooth!  I am so happy that I took their advice.  One of the things that really makes Dr. Thai shine among his peers is that he sees you as a person, not a wallet.  He’s not interested in charging you for every little thing/follow up visit/etc.  He just wants you to be well informed about what’s happening with your teeth and what your options are so YOU can decide want YOU want to do in terms of treatment.  Of course, he will give you his expert opinion on what the ideal course of action is, but he won’t pressure you into high dollar procedures or try to take advantage of you.  He’s a straight-shooter and somebody I’m very pleased to recommend!

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


I’m not one to usually post reviews on yelp but this place truly deserves a positive one! My first time here, I got my semi-chipped front teeth aesthetically fixed by Dr Thai in the most simplest but economical way and It’s lasted for over a year. Recently I’ve had some issues with a tooth that will eventually need an implant- I came back here to see Dr Thai and he has been more than helpful by giving me several options to fix this area which has made me feel very secure and comforting knowing that it will be taken care of. They most definitely know what they are doing and they do it in the best way possible. Not to mention, the entire office is friendly and welcoming and will do the best they can to take care of you. I highly recommend this practice to anyone that has dental issues because as a patient I definitely feel I made the right choice by coming here and will continue to do so for a very long time!

Carolyn L. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Moving from a different city and due for my annual cleaning, I searched long for an exceptional dentist that also took my insurance. That’s when I came across Dr. Thai. Coming from a long history of bad dentists, I was very skeptical of all the marvelous ratings patients reviewed about him. However, my initial appointment with Dr. Thai and his staff was by far the most easy going and thorough procedure I have ever experienced in a dental office. Dr. Thai not only told me what he was going to do but he also explained why and how it was going be to done. He is always very polite, courteous, and always tries to do the best job possible without any pain. After years of having an old crown, Dr. Thai noticed that I had developed some decay (not something my other dentists have mentioned to me before and I get annual cleanings and x-rays). So, he went ahead and removed the old crown, thoroughly cleaning the tooth, and replaced the crown, precisely matching the enamel color to the rest of my teeth. Also, Dr. Thai and his hygenist were very gentle and helpful when it came to cleaning my teeth and gums after telling them I suffer from TMJ (not something I’ve experienced at other dental offices). I was fitted for a new night guard as well during my third visit and Dr. Thai gave me his best recommendation. It was a completely different night guard, not as bulky or stiff. This I could actually wear during the day time to help with clenching. Overall, Dr. Thai and his staff deserve 5 stars for being exveptionally thorough, polite, courteous, and generous.

Solange K. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


For amazing patient care, knowledgeable dentistry, friendly staff, and clean facility, this is the place to go. I cannot speak highly enough of Dr. Thai and his team. He is such a patient dentist that truly cares about you and your teeth. He does great and thorough work, and he tries his best to make things as painless as possible. From the wonderful front desk manned by Maria to the great dental assistant Carina (spelling?) who makes sure there is never too much slobber/saliva in your mouth, the staff is super nice! I like to joke that I go there just to hang out with them. I highly recommend this place if you’re looking for a dentist!

Holly S. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


I made an yelp account just so I can write a review on Dr.Thai. I love him. He’s one of the best. Talk about attention to detail, he is it. He is in the business of making people happy. He doesn’t half ass his work just to make a few bucks off of you. He care about his patients and their health. He answered all of my million questions I had and he gave me the break down of the what happen? Why it happen? And how can we fix it? What can we do together to prevent this? Who can ask for a better dentist than that?? I

Karla M. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai is very professional, explains in great detail every procedure and he and his staff make you feel very comfortable. The music they play throughout the office is soft and relaxing and I sometimes forget I’m at the dentist. Maria at the front desk always welcomes the patients with a smile; she is knowledgable and clearly explains the charges and what the insurance covers, so there are never any surprises. This dental team has changed my outlook and opinions about what a visit to the dentist should be.

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


Let me start out by saying I’ve been fortunate in that I’ve always had great dentists. A recent move brought me to Dr. Thai, and even with all my good prior experiences, I’m really impressed!! The level of service and care that he and EVERYONE in his office shows is impeccable. My husband (who generally keeps to himself), said even he couldn’t help but smile and feel totally relaxed b/c Dr. Thai was so nice!

Jessica G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently had a teeth cleaning done by Dr. Thai and it was the best experience of my life. I typically stay very far away from dentists and I don’t go as often as I should because I have VERY sensitive teeth and they often are too rough with the cleaning and cause me a lot of pain. Dr. Thai initially started with the typical teeth cleaning device that makes that terrible zinging noise and I expressed that it was causing me pain and he told me not to worry and that he can do it manually.  Music to my ears!!!!  He cleaned every single tooth BY HAND using a different tool that was painless and made no noise.  I never knew this was possible or I would have requested this from every dentist I’ve ever been to.  He even managed to get the plaque out on my bottom teeth permanent retainer that I thought was stuck. I’ll definitely be back in another six months to do it all over again. Thank you Dr. Thai !

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


This place is really amazing. Scheduled an appt based on the yelp reviews for an ortho consult. Set that all up, the receptionist called to inform me my insurance would not cover treatment here but that the initial consult and xrays were free so if I still wanted to come in it would be ok, but just to be aware of the insurance issue. I decided to go just to see what was going on with my teeth and get a quote. The insurance issue is sad, but glad they still would see me anyways. I don’t think I will be going there just because my insurance doesn’t cover them, but if it did I’d be signed up already and I will highly recommend them to anyone who’s looking for a professional, friendly, clean, convenient office. Also almost no waiting time, most of the time waiting was because I needed to fill out my paperwork, so that was awesome. no frills/tvs in the dental office, but no need… The San Gabriel mountains in clear sight are more than you need to keep entertained in the down time. Absolutely gorgeous views.

I had a great experience with the orthodontist and dentist here. I highly recommend this office if you are looking for quality treatment with doctors that care about you. They are amazing! I rarely write reviews and I knew I had to for other people that may not like going to the dentist which is how I used to be.

Shari M. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


It was initially a shock to discover that my former dentist had sold his practice to Dr. Thai  but that shock turned into a real blessing!  The office has a very nice air and is decorated in good taste.  I was pleased that my hygienist, Janet was still there.  Dr. Thai is an exceptional dentist and his attention to the smallest detail has been greatly appreciated.  He did a beautiful job of replacing a crown on one of my molars. No one likes to have that done but he made the process comfortable. I was very concerned because my teeth were shifting.  Apparently, I was given the  wrong kind of night guard for my upper teeth.  Dr. Thai and his wife Dr. Whang who is an orthodontist tag teamed the problem.  Dr. Thai had the correct kind of night guard made for me and Dr. Whang had a retainer made for my lower teeth.  The combination is working beautifully!  Here’s the bottom line. They really care.  Their office staff is wonderful!  Maria is a doll.  I feel very well taken care of when I go there.

Kevin W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai and his staff are great! I had multiple cavities and a root canal done over several visits and each time the work was flawless. They are always good about rescheduling too if you need to. I was driving from Hollywood to Arcadia to have work done and it was well worth the trip. I plan on going back for cleaning and whitening.

Luci C. C. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I can’t believe I was lucky enough to happen upon this dental clinic. I came here after my partner was referred to Dr. Thai by the Ivy Institute. Not only Dr. Thai, but his entire team at his dental office are all amazing. Everyone is kind and patient. Dr. Thai is hands down the best dentist I have ever been to. He is well-experienced, honest, detail-oriented, and down to earth. He patiently explains every step of the dental treatment process to his patients, he takes his time to make sure that his dental work is done perfectly, and he will be upfront about everything that you will be going through as a patient. It’s difficult to put my feelings of gratitude into words, but I will never look back after finding Dr. Thai’s dental clinic. Thank you so much for diagnosing and treating my dental problems, it’s been a long journey (of experiencing subpar dental care from other places) and I’m SO SO GLAD it’s concluding at Dr. Thai’s clinic!!

Jamie Y. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient for almost 4 years now and (thankfully) have never needed to have any work done aside from semi-annual cleanings. Well, on a Saturday night I chipped a tooth.  I called first thing Monday morning and was able to come in later that day.  Apparently, I had actually chipped 2 teeth and Dr. Thai was able to get them both fixed and looking better than before.  I was worried about the pain because I had the same teeth fixed before and remembered it being incredibly painful.  I felt nothing other than the vibrations of the drills! The entire staff is wonderful so if you’re looking for a new dentist, this is the place!

Jessica T. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hardly ever write reviews for non-restaurants/cafes/eateries, but I really need to express my appreciation for this dental office and share it with the world. Quick backstory: I’ve been suffering from TMJ disorder for a few years now, and only until recently has it gotten so bad that I could barely eat or talk without pain shooting down the entire right side of my face. After researching some dentists in the area, I found Dentaldontics, with their professional website, and exceptional reviews. I quickly made an appt and the process for a new patient was so simple – I could print out the new patient forms online and just bring it to them. I was supposed to go in for a first assessment, where pictures and exams would be taken for Dr. Thai to assess what kind of treatment (if any) I would need. But since my TMJ was so bad, he focused all his time and effort into fixing that. By doing so, it showed me he truly cares about what I want and need from my dentist, rather than trying to fix other things that I may or may not need. Note: Dr. Thai is NOT a TMJ specialist, but his knowledge and experience with the subject is so extensive I like to consider him a specialist regardless of title. He has thorough research and explanations to support his decisions and is very comprehensive in the way he treats his patients’ treatments. Him and his assistant, Karina, make visits to the dentist rewarding – they put patient care above all else and TRULY listen to you and your expectations. I may sound a bit dramatic when I say this… but I am truly so incredibly grateful I found Dr. Thai and Karina. I thought my TMJ would be a permanent disorder I would have to deal with for my entire life – making it impossible to ever have a normal jaw ever again. But they gave me hope. Although TMJ is a very gray subject matter and there is no clear solution, I have faith that I will be able to live with it with a better understanding of what to do during which type of symptoms.   HIGHLY RECOMMEND. If you want to experience what true patient care feels like.

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


I highly recommend Dr. Thai and his office if you are looking for quality treatment with doctors that care about you. They are amazing! I rarely write reviews (as you can see from my profile) but I knew I had to for other people that may not like going to the dentist which is how I used to be. As previous reviews have noted Dr. Thai is patient and skillful. He has so much knowledge and you can tell he truly cares about you and your teeth. He teaches you as well so you understand your treatment plan. His office is clean and very friendly. It’s easy to make an appointment and they have great at reminders for follow up/cleaning appointments. Dental care is typically associated with pain and negative feelings however Dr. Thai and his office are changing the game. I always leave their office feeling better than before. My mind is at ease that I have taken care of teeth which is important part of overall health and wellness.

Tan T. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


When I was kid, a dentist had to pull out a tooth and told me to raise my hand if there was pain.  He did not use Novocain.  Of course it was painful and I raised my hand higher and higher crying hysterically.  He never stopped until the tooth was out.  This memory stuck with me ever since and I tried avoiding the dentist as much as I could growing up.  For someone like me who is afraid of going to the dentist from bad experience, the switch to PPO to try out Dr. Thai upon recommendations is something I will never look back on.   I have been using HMO dental insurance all my life and ran into poor dentist plenty of times.  Some do a rush job, some painful, and many try to sell you on procedures you do not really need.   This was my first visit at the office and I already noticed a difference in my comfort level.  Dr. Thai has good communication skills and this has been the most detailed teeth cleaning I have had. I am use to dentists finishing quicker and shoving me off to the assistant for polishing.  He answered all my questions.  They actually got me in within my appointment time.

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


I normally don’t right reviews but I feel that Dr. Thai is by far the best dentist I’ve ever used. Not only was he great, but it was painless and to me that is very important. Most Doctors don’t care if you feel pain but Dr. Thai truly cares for his patients. I was really happy with all the work done and I finally feel like I found the perfect place. Besides the entire staff being so friendly, I truly appreciate the front office Lady named Maria. Extremely friendly and I love the fact that she called me to remind me of my appointment. Kudos to everyone there, thank you for such great service.

John E. from Valley Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai is one of those rare medical professionals you come across in your lifetime that is so adept at their craft, that you’ll follow them anywhere. I have bounced around to a lot of dentists over the years, some good, some bad, which is why I’m so glad I stumbled upon Dr. Thai. I used to have a dentist in Santa Barbara that I liked quite a lot. When I moved here to Los Angeles, I struggled to find anyone even close to the same caliber as my dentist in Santa Barbara… so what did I do? I kept driving up to Santa Barbara every 6 months for my checkups. That’s how important it is to me that I find a quality dentist. Eventually someone was kind enough to recommend Dr. Thai to me. Since meeting Dr. Thai, I can safely say that I have never been to a better dentist in my life. If you’re having problems with a tooth, or just need a checkup, the only advice I can give you would be to stop wasting further time on yelp, and make an appointment with Dr. Thai, right awa

Tim Z. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr thai is very patient and caring in general. He explains everything in detail. Very honest guy. Office is very clean and the staff and front lady Marie is also very nice. They did a lot of work for me and this is coming from someone who hates going to the dentist. I highly recommend him.

Hanh H. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr thai is a honest dentist I can trust.  I have a problem with my molar and he is able to explain all the the pros and cons of treatment and not just try to sell you something.  He truly takes the time to educate and inform his patients about procedures and services.  He is one of the better dentist i have been to in the sgv, after trying a few in the area he is the only one I would trust to work on my teeth.

Rafael M. from Duarte, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a patient at Arcadia Dentaldontics, I can simply say that I have been very pleased on a variety of levels.   First of all, the staff is very friendly and they will work to accommodate your scheduling needs and they take the time to explain what the costs are for your respective treatments.   Second, I’ve been having my teeth cleaned at this office by Janet for years and she is very thorough and is genuinely concerned about my teeth’s well-being. Lastly, Dr. Thai, much like the rest of his team is also thorough as he takes the time to explain what the issues may be with your teeth.  Moreover, Dr. Thai ensures that you understand your treatment options and he does not push you towards a treatment that is either not needed, or a treatment you may not comfortable with.  Basically, he is honest and wants to help you with your respective teeth issues. In short, I am happy to be a patient at Dentaldontics and recommend them without reservation…see you in the waiting room.

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


I love the staff and dentists here! I have followed them for years through various locations. Great and friendly staff that remember your name, are caring and make sure you have a great experience. I know people drive from really far away for the excellent care you receive here. And their conservative philosophy aligns with mine so I know I won’t get any unnecessary treatments and they care about the preservation of my beautiful smile. Pros: -Great location near freeway -Never busy – they keep a tight calendar, so don’t miss your appointments and if you must cancel, do it way in advance -Excellent staff and oral care -Clean and relaxing facility -High tech – they were able to interact with my full team of doctors (surgeon, ortho) so everyone is on the same page

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


Dr. Thai is a true patient advocate. Working in healthcare, it’s rare to see a doctor truly care about the well being of their patient and not settling for mediocre. I followed Dr. Thai from another dental office because he really cares about you as his patient. I had to suffer through many dental treatments in my life and I can remember no other dentist that stood out like Dr. Thai. He watched out for me by getting a second opinion when the first specialist couldn’t “find anything wrong” but I continued to suffer from pain. He spoke to the second specialist by asking more questions than I knew to ask as a patient and got my first specialist to refund part of my treatment payment since insurance wouldn’t cover it the second time around. He also constantly reassured me that as his patient I was his priority and would ensure that I received the best possible care from the second specialist. How awesome is that?? Maria at the front desk is amazing. She is very accommodating with the schedule and such a sweetheart. Dr. Whang is the orthodontist and is working with me to straighten out my teeth with Invisalign. Dr. Whang is very patient and easy to talk to. She demands perfection and like Dr. Thai won’t settle for less. The entire staff, from the dental assistants to hygienist, are really great. Dr. Thai is one dentist I will continue to follow and refer to friends and family.

Lane H. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you want a highly skilled and personable Dentist, you cannot go wrong with Dr. Thai! I am so impressed with how he put me at ease and answered all my questions, he really goes above and beyond, demonstrating how much he truly cares about his work and patients. He spent extra time with me during busy a office day, not wanting to rush the process of getting that perfect color match for a crown, (and being in the entertainment industry it was double appreciated). His staff, including Janet, who does a beautiful job with teeth cleanings, while keeping you entertained with her great humor and fun stories, really makes the time fly. Maria, who runs the administrative side of things, is an absolute ANGEL who helps you navigate the crazy world of “insurance vs. out of pocket” with great compassion and patience. When you combine it all together, you are left with a feeling of, “Wow, going to the Dentist wasn’t a bad experience at all”! In fact, I can’t believe I’m saying this, but it was actually pleasant! I highly recommend this office! I even travel from Sherman Oaks to Arcadia b/c Dr. Thai is totally worth it!
