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

Dr. K, and all of the staff – Fabiana, Lily and all dental hygienists I’ve seen – are amazingly professional and courteous and do a great, great job. They’ve helped me in the long-ish process waiting for veneers by putting in new temporary teeth 3 times and always have been super-responsive even though I know I must be their most needy patient ever! I wouldn’t think of going to another dentist!

If you want to be treated like royality go to AVALON DENTAL CARE. 23541 Avalon Blvd. Carson CA. 90745 I love them all so much. They have been working on my teeth for a while but everything was done yesterday. Linda was always there when I needed her. Lupe and Debra never went to far. When I called any of their names they magically appeared. I was a bit anxious about getting shots in the front teeth and Lupe was there to hold my hand until it was over. Dr. Karin did a wonderful job and Dr. Kellishadi was always there to help. Rosie is awesome too. She never treated me bad. When I said that I looked ugly Rosie and Linda always reassured me that I wasn’t. Debra and all of the staff are sweet as pie and I’d never go anywhere else. So LINDA, ROSIE, LUPE, AND DEBRA thank you for caring about me! Love you all

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!

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

First visit : I was able to see how patient and professional the staff carried themselves. Very friendly and explained everything thoroughly Second visit : same thing and also a clean dental office is a plus Third visit : I had to get my crown done scary right?! Not so much, especially after the horrible experience I had with a previous dental office, this was a breeze! Dr was awesome made my fears come to an end did the job with her amazing dental assistant! Then the finale!!!! 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

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


This office continues to amaze me.  I went in for an emergency visit on a Friday evening. They said they will see me and may wait a little. They also added that they wanted to enjoy my weekend not having to worry about my tooth ache. How awesome is that. This office is amazing. I will never go elsewhere. They so made my weekend. Thank you

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


I chose this dental office based on a friend’s recommendation. I had a tooth that had been hurting for over 2 months and I have been ignoring the pain. Finally, one day I couldn’t take it anymore and called . Dr. Kelishadi saw me the same day, was warm, kind and thorough, explained everything and answered all my questions without rushing me, I knew I have a lot of work that I’ve been putting off and she didn’t make me feel bad about it. I told her money was an issue so she prioritized my treatment and told exactly what needs to be done now and what I could wait on. I felt she was very honest and genuine

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

I needed an emergency fix on a chipped tooth, and was seen by Dr. Davani, I believe. She was swift, dextrous, helpful (and honest) about all the options available. The women at the front were charming, and very thorough in explaining how costs and insurance broke down. I will absolutely be back

G S. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I give this office a five star. I’ve started going to this office since last November but I waited to get some serious work done to write a review. You won’t find a better dentist anywhere than Dr. Kelishadi.  In fact, I don’t know how to write this review without sounding like another reviewer… I finally find my DENTIST. Seriously, she’s an absolute artist when it comes to teeth. When it comes to dental issues, I’m not the most stoic of patients (and I may have spent some time worrying myself into a panic by looking at worst-case-scenario pictures on Google Images) but Dr. Kelishadi and her staff are always soothing and matter-of-fact. I’ve never been in any pain during any of my dental procedures and I’ve always been thrilled with what she’s done. Her office staff always does their best to work with your schedule and get you a timely appointment. And, my favorite thing ever, they can send you appointment reminders by TEXT as someone who never checks my voice mail (or answers my phone), this is such a plus. I might never be excited about having my teeth drilled or my face numbed but Dr. Kelishadi and her staff make the whole process a lot more relaxing and pleasant. You’ll feel like you’re visiting friends (who just happen to work on your teeth.)I always greeted with smile every time I walk in, Thank you Linda for making me feel like family. BTW, they have this floss card that is perfect for your bags…ask and  they give it to you for free, never seen one like it before

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

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


Expriences 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

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

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.

As an adult, I never contemplated the possibility of having to get braces. Sadly, the thought had to cross my mind when I was told I needed them. But the bright side to all of this was that Dr. Kelishadi was my dentist and I knew that it was going to be a good experience. I now have braces for about a year more, but there have been no complications thanks to Dr. Kelishadi.

Melissa Fitterer (Source: Google)


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

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

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

Michelle D. (Source: Zocdoc)


This was my first visit and I arrived a little before my appointment time and right as I sat down to fill out my paperwork I was called in. Awesome! They were so nice, gentle and informative. The office is beautiful and very clean. I’ll be back. 🙂

This is a fantastic dental office…. I have never been to a dentist wherein one doctor specialized in so many different procedures….. This doctor has all of my respect… And thee staff are phenomenal….. From the doctor to yhe dental assistants to the front desk….. Great customer service…. ❤ love it . my mom, son , neighbor and i go here.. Wouldn’t change a thing.

This place is great! It is neat and organize. All staff members are so nice and friendly. The front desk staff (Linda & Rosie) and the team members who assists the doctors provides such excellent customer service and will definitely make you feel very welcome and comfortable. I had my wisdom teeth removed by the doctor and her assistant in year 2015. They both were great and did an amazing job. Just recently (7/2/18), I had a deep cleaning done by this wonderful, amazing, and super kind woman name, “Eman.” During the procedure, she was very patient and caring. She waited and made sure I was completely comfortable enough prior to starting the procedure. Eman did a terrific job and would HIGHLY recommend her for deep and regular cleanings. I left the clinic feeling satisfied and happy (: Over all, I would definitely recommend this place

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

Amanda C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love love the service here! Everyone is always so friendly! Every time I come in they always make you feel so welcome. Came today with my daughter and they were so nice to her better than the dental place we had gone to before here

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

The assistants/hygienist were both very very friendly and very efficient. They were honest about my teeth and gave good advice. I have a lot of anxiety going to the dentist for who knows what reason, so it definitely helps when the dentist is friendly, warm, and helps me relax. I don’t feel like Dr. Kelishadi was very personable or warm so I felt a little tense but she gave good feedback as well. The office is warm, friendly, clean, and uses top notch technology. I’ll definitely stick with it

Wayne N. from Hartley (Source: Yelp)


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

Tera S. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Kelishadi for years now and had always had a pleasant experience. The staff is very friendly, both doctors are very compassionate, ethical, and experienced. They always try to avoid unnecessary procedures and prices are very reasonable. I have had many procedures done including my last tooth implant which feels great now after 6 months

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


I’ve been to many dentists over the past 20 years, and I used to hate going to dentist, especially the last experience I had with my previous dentist cost me a lot of money and a lot of pain, with a bad result. My daughter recommended Doctor Kelishadi and after six years with her I know I will never go anywhere else, Not even for cleaning. She is like an angel with an angelic face and touch, very patient. All people from my office including our president and partners are her patients. I found out from our secretary. She really cares about my needs, and she is very honest and that is very important to me especially when you know you can be taken advantage of. Overall I highly recommend Dr. Kelishad

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.

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

It was great. I loved the Hygienist that cleaned my teeth. They recommended some additional work since I had not seen a dentist in a long time. They are fast, efficient, and nice staff. The office and equipment is very nice and modern. I would recommend her and her staff to anyone that I come across looking for dental work
