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


I have been coming to this dentist for over 10 years. Dr Kelishadi was my first dentist but she moved to the other office. She was amazing but now practices at the other office. Dr Davani is now the dentist here. There is no one else I would let do my dental work. I actually am terrified of the dentist but she has done all my fillings, and root canals and honestly they have been pain free. She waits until the numbing medication has taken full effect before as starts the work which is so important. I come every 3 months for a deep cleaning with Iman and she is great. She is gentle and takes her time. I love the office staff.. Linda and Rosie handles all the insurance and appointments and is on top of everything. They make sure I am on top of all my appts and procedures if I need them. They also get back to you quickly. The office is always clean. Couldn’t ask for a better place.

Excellent! The best experience at the dental office I have ever had was at Avalon. From making appointments to get my implant. Doctor Marjan Kelishadi is very knowledgeable and professional. She is a really good surgeon. I had lost lots of bones in my jaw. She grafted bones in order to do implant a few months ago. She extracted my tooth. She did an implant.I didn’t have any pain and just had a pain killer the day after the surgery. She also did crowns for me. All she did was Great work. Her staff are friendly and her office is very clean and up to date.

I’ve been a patient at Avalon dental going on 7 years and I couldn’t go anywhere else! I love the amazing staff. Lidia and Rosie make me feel like I’m at home when I come in for appointments. Deb and lupe make sure I’m settled in and comfortable before I see the doctor. Iman is the best hygienist and never fails to keep my mouth clean. Last not but least, I’ve had both Invisalign and braces treatment with Dr. Davani and Dr. Cao and they both are attentive and informative with any questions or concerns I have with my teeth. This place makes me love going to the dentist to get my routine check ups and cleanings! They’re like family to me and will continue to make me feel good and smile showing off my beautiful teeth!

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


I love there work and they have great customer service . They have the best doctors to work on your teeth. They make my dental experience less stressful…it’s always a place I loved come to. Everyone that’s looking for dental care service I recommend you guys/gals to schedule your appointments today . You will feel like your at Home.

Lauren M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff here are wonderful! So friendly and professional. I called to make an appointment and let them know I would be coming on my lunch break, the woman said she would make note of that and get me in right away. When I arrived I was greeted by an extremely friendly staff who got me in and out and were so mindful that I had limited time since I was on my lunch break. The dentist was wonderful too! I was concerned that a stain on my bottom tooth was a cavity, but the dentist said it was not necessary to do a filling and that she’d keep watch of it and observe how it looks on my next visit. I haven’t been back because my insurance has changed to denti-cal, but I called the office and they let me know how I can talk to someone at denti-cal and get it changed so I can go back to their office…I can’t wait, I love this dental office, especially compared to the one I’m going to now.

My son needed braces but he was afraid people would make fun of him. He refused to get normal braces. At Avalon Dental Care, the dentist suggested Invisalign. With Invisalign, my son finds that it is easier to clean than regular braces. Also, he can eat whatever he wants. We are grateful for the suggestion from the dentist, and my son loves that there is a way to straighten his teeth clear and easy.

Linda S. from Artesia, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist I have ever been too. My kids really enjoying seeing Dr. Davani. She makes them laugh and they feel really comfortable with her. The assistants are great. Both my kids really like debra. The girls in the front are very sweet and explain treatment  in detail. I highly recommend this office. Give it a try and you will never go elsewhere again. 2 thumbs up.

Rhea E. From Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for my impacted wisdom tooth. The doctor prescribed me antibiotics for the swelling to go down. Then a few days later I had my extraction. I was a tad bit nervous. It’s was painless and the doctor helped me feel at ease. The whole staff is so nice and helpful. They helped me get my insurance situation figured out because I had just switched carriers due to a new job.

Rachel L. from Redondo Beach, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today is my second appointment and if I could give more  stars I most definitely would. I’ve been going to different dentist since I was a young child. I had taken a few years off due to no insurance and anxiety. I had a friend refer me to Avalon Dental. My experience has been wonderful, Linda and Rosie have made getting authorizations so easy. They are on top of all my referrals and authorizations. If you are from the area or even out of the area, look up Avalon Dental, I promise you will not be disappointed.

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


Front desk staff was very friendly & helpful. Compared to my previous dental experience they were really helpful and took the time to inform me on the things I needed to know and were able to answer all my questions. I will definitely be back! Next up getting my wisdom teeth taken out. Also the dental assistant who took my X-rays was very gentle and light. 10/10 experience from start to finish. Wait time was considerably way better than my last experience as well.

Linda S. from Artesia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve known Dr. Kelishadi for over ten years and know how wonderful she is with kids. My little ones were just there last month and walked out smiling. When a child has an injection and a tooth pulled and does not know it. That just shows how great Dr. Kelishadi is. My kids could not believe it that they had a tooth removed even after they saw the tooth, they had to look in a mirror to see that the tooth was missing. Even then they were still shocked. My son was 6 years old at the time now 7 and my daughter 5. Dr. Kelishadi also has an amazing staff to back her up. Dr. K , & Dr. Davani thank you so much for the care you give my familyand I. Linda Sanchez, Artesia, CA.

Doris M. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental experience I have ever had.  I had a lot of stuff done, I mean, scary stuff – but it was a very positive experience.  The dentist was professional but friendly and the staff is great. Honestly, I would recommend this dentist to anyone who is afraid of dental work; I love the atmosphere of the office and the work is excellent!

Jaz R. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today I went in for an extraction and filling and first time getting something done here. I loved the service treated me really good!  My mom actually recommended this dental office it’s literally down the street from where I live I actually walked home witch was great. I recommend this dental office to everyone if your looking for a dentist that’s good at doing there job, on time staff is great also at helping you out this is one you should go to. Thank you Avalon Dental for helping me out I appreciate your service!

Jesse E. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time at Avalon Dental Care and am already treated like a regular! Both assistants at the front desk were super attentive and they got me out of the office within an hour. (Which I think is great  because I had to fill out paper work.) I googled this place because I live down the street and was happy to hear that they accept Medi-Cal. I would recommend this office to any one in the Carson/Wilmington area… Definitely good to know that we have a reliable and careful office, close to home.

Rocio C. from Harbor, Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental office in the city of Carson. Even though I live in Gardena don’t mind driving here for My Appointments. My Son & Me have Been coming to this office for couple years and Like the Staff members specially Rosie who is amazing, answers all questions and concerns. Dr.Davani is very nice, professional and gentle. I recommend this office to Family, Friends and Anyone Else Looking for a Good Dentist.

Linda the receptionist SOOOO funny and sweet, had me laughing even with a numb mouth lol I really enjoyed conversing with the staff and the overall visit! Totally recommend this office with more than two thumbs up.

Rachel Lujan (Source: Google)


I had such a wonderful experience at Avalon Dental Care I have been telling everyone about them. I was taken in at my appointment time. The dentist was very nice. I have some messed up teeth but never felt judged. Linda in the front office was very nice and helpful. She has a lot of knowledge. I’m going to book my daughters appointment and my dad’s. Very professional, very clean and both front and back office staff were friendly.

Awesome ladies at the desk, really nice and friendly. They always make me feel at home and not nervous about the dentist. My cleaning lady is badass and cleans my teeth up well. My dentist is really nice and sweet. Totally recommended this place. Nice to know they take medical, cash and card. Thank you!

Kathleen T. (Source: Zocdoc)


She and everyone on her team are amazing. I really like the vibe of her practice and everyone’s energy. After all these years, I can’t believe it took this long and for me to move to the south bay to find the best dentist for me. I had got a cleaning and check up because my teeth were in pain after my pregnancy at another dentist. They did an awful job, they told me that my teeth were just sensitive. They still hurt, so I decided to try another dentist. I’m so glad that I did! She found that THREE of my teeth were broken still had tartar buildup. I probably wouldn’t have any teeth left, if I hadn’t chosen her. She’s very fair on what your insurance doesn’t cover, too. I will be going here from now on.

The staff are fantastic. Super friendly and personable. The type of place where you walk in and they know who you are and treat you like an old friend. They always put my mind at ease whenever I had a question, very knowledgable. I didn’t hesitate to ask a question because I knew they would have a detailed answer for me, no matter how stupid I felt the question was. I got braces and went through the whole ordeal with this group of individuals. Made it easy, especially if I managed to break a bracket and had to swing by to get it replaced. All I suggest is to always call ahead and you shouldn’t have any problems. They work with your schedule, the hours they are open are fantastic. Every dental office I have been to in the past closed around 5 so it made it difficult to get any dental work done. I would definitely recommend this dental office.

Ali A. from Malibu, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the greatest experience at this dental office. I believe someone really cares about this place from the way the office is laid out to the way they treat you and care for you. They thought about everything to make you feel comfortable and at home. I would definitely recommend this dentist to all my friends and will take my kids back.

Reza F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Recently I went in to get my teeth cleaned and fix my root canal the dentist was very gently and did a very clean job. So far i have referred all my family to them and they love it. I have very sensitive teeth and hate the dentist, but this experience has changed my mind i recommend them if your looking for someone that cares and has gently hands.

Barbara Mintz (Source: Google)


The best dental experience in my entire life. This dentist is so skilled that you do not even feel anything she does. She is the first dentist that was able to get full mouth impressions. In the past, with other dentists, I chocked and turned purple. She is so skilled that it is a miracle. I have so much confidence in her. The facility is so modern and immaculate. State-of-the-Art!!! I am sending all my numerous friends and people I know to see her and benefit too. Why suffer when you have someone like her.

Karen W. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for over 7 years and am very happy not only with my dentist but the staff as well.  Everyone is very professional as well as kind.  I have recommended Avalon Dental Care to my friends as well as family members.  Some dentist will try to talk you into things that you don’t need but that is not the case here.  They listen to you and your concerns and explain what can and can’t be done.  Dr. Davani is patient and understanding and compassionate.

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


I’m not normally a reviewer, but I had to post a review for Avalon Dental. I’ve been to many dentists over the years, and after coming here I will never go anywhere else. I feel like the dentist really cares about my needs, and is honest about what I do and do not need to do. Honesty is very important to me especially when you know you can be taken advantage of. Plus the dentist does everything to improve your teeth! Not only does the dentist care, but every procedure I have had, from fillings to wisdom teeth pulls, cleanings, and crowns, have been gentle and virtually painless. I am always shocked when I wake up the next morning with no pain. To add to that, I believe the prices to be very reasonable. Overall I highly recommend Avalon Dental.

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


My experience there was great.   When I walked in I found the atmosphere to be very friendly and welcoming.   The dental assistant was very knowledgeable and helped me to understand the procedures that needed to get done.   The office staff, Rosie V., and Linda C. were exceptionally competent and professional in their demeanor.  They were very thorough in their explanation of my future dental work.   I am having cleaning, restoration, and re-crowning being done.   Dr. Davani is very professional and truly an expert in her field.  I just wish I had known about this place of business a long time ago.   They’ll be needing a larger building because they will definitely be growing and expanding..

I love have a cup of tea in the morning time. However, a couple years back, I was having as much as 5 cups per day. I was warned it would begin staining my teeth but that didn’t persuade me. But, guess what? It happened! Luckily, I didn’t have to live with my stained teeth for long. I made an appointment at Avalon and my dentist ensure that my teeth were white once again. I’ve slowed down on my tea intake but thought the ordeal, I found a trustworthy dentist.

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


Experiences are personal and sometimes it even depends on what side of the bed you get up ;-)….But, I’ve been going to Avalon Dental for 5 years now and have found their staff to be very professional and caring. The doctor has a steady hand and does a great job. The less pain you give me, the more you have me hooked. My grandma used to say: ” choose your doctor, mechanic and lawyer well”. I can’t say much about my lawyer but I’ve been really lucky with my mechanic and dentist. I like avalon dental and I give them 5 stars.

S. F. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went here as a first-timer, and I was really pleased with the service, from not only the friendly reception desk, but from the dental assistant that was there with me when I was getting my x-rays. As a child, I have always been petrified of the dentist, but this experience was a positive one. I wish I had more time with the dentist, however, to discuss more work I needed, but I was glad that she was professional about it. And they’re also very helpful with discussing what would be financially best for your pocket!

Zulma Z. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently began getting work done at Avalon Dental Care. I am happy with the service and work I’ve received. All the staff at Avalon Dental Care is friendly, helpful, and polite. I highly recommend Avalon Dental Care. It is easy to book my appointments, they are open late and open one Saturday a month.  When I go in for treatments they are always fast, gentle, and I feel close to no pain. I am happy I found a dentist I like and feel comfortable going to.

How much fun can having a tooth extracted be? I was in pain and the Avalon Dental staff told be to come in same day. Said there could be a wait as they were fully booked, and I did not care. Less than 5 minutes after I arrived I was called in. Dr Davani diagnosed the problem quickly and gave me the option to do an extraction today, which turned out to be 15 minutes later. Extraction of molar not fun, but Dr Davani is very capable and experienced. While it seemed like forever while it was happening, it actually was over quite quickly and two days later, pain relief was immediate and I have experience only slight discomfort from procedure as I recover. Have already decided to try to get back on track with regular check-ups and have scheduled a visit for early June.

Andrea M. from Federal Way, WA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing customer service by the beautiful ladies in the front desk and a such a relief to find a top notch dentist who knows what she is doing. Dr Devani was so gentle and the procedures were made so much less stressful because of her. I got to listen to music while getting my first ever root canal and it made such a difference on my experience. The rest of the staff was also so accommodating. You’ll be in good experienced hands!
