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

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

★★★★★

Dr. Banaria and her staff are awesome! She is the best dentist I have ever gone to and I’m not exaggerating. Dr. Banaria was recommended by a coworker. Thank you Yvette! I just had a crown put in today. It was painless. The doctor is patient and gentle. She takes the time to explain what she is doing and why. She will answer any questions you have. She has great chair side manner and is adept at easing a patients’ fears. The staff is friendly and helpful. I think the best part is that you can listen to any music you want to using headphones while the procedure is going on. So if you want an honest and caring dentist with a wonderful staff, do yourself a favor and call Dr. Banaria’s office to set-up an appointment. You won’t regret it – I didn’t

Dr. Vivian Banaria is very professional. Her office is welcoming and staff very friendly and attentive. Dr. Banaria services are provided with lots of attention, patience, and never rushes. She is always available to answer questions, even over the phone. I drive many miles to make sure my family gets the best care possible.

She is amazing.. Soft gentle touch.. Dr. Banaria and her staff make you feel right at home.. have the best time when its time for my routinely checkup. Have been coming to her for 2+ years and wouldn’t trade her for a new dentist.

Min D. from Central LA, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

AMAZING. Normally I’m incredibly sensitive but this dentist used a numbing gel so it didn’t hurt at all. The process was quick and the dentist was very gentle and kind. I haven’t left my apartment much since covid so I was worried about going to a dentist but they were really great. I was the only one in the waiting room. Anyway, I can’t recommend them enough! Also, usually with new dentists I get the scam that they want to do a deep cleaning. I don’t need one because I get clean every 6 months like clockwork. This dentist did not do that. I know I can trust her and I will be coming here from now on! I guess they really space out the appointments.

G. R. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

My new dentist!! Love the fact you get to relax watching videos while they work on your teeth  Dr. Banaria has such delicate hands, you don’t feel a thing! Even the shots were painless  bringing the family back

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

★★★★★

I recently moved to LA and needed a new dentist and I was lucky in finding Dr. Banaria. Her offices are clean and modern. She is super friendly and very gentle.  She will even play Netflix for you while you’re getting you work done!  They also have awesome promotions going on (free teeth whitening!) and even discounts for those who don’t have insurance. Also, she is open on Saturdays which is awesome if you work during the week! I highly recommend her.

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

★★★★★

Just amazing! Everyone who works here is so incredibly sweet and thoughtful. Dr. Banaria is so gentle, i couldn’t recommend her enough! With medi-cal it’s tough to find a doctor that you can really trust and feel comfortable with and this whole team wows me!

Luisa C. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

We came here for our family appointment as new patients. The office is so nicely decorated and inviting. The assistant who took our xrays is so gentle and fast. When Dr. Banaria did our cleaning, we are so impressed. She’s very detailed. My husband and I absolutely loved it! BTW it was our daughter’s first time in a dental office, she is 2 years old and had a great experience. They’re so good with kids too. Fortunately, no cavities for all of us. We’ll definitely coming back in 6 months.

★★★★★

Every visit is always exceptional. Dr. Banaria and her staff have made visits to the dentist a pleasure. They are very attentive to detail and have beautiful “bedside manner”

Margaux B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I found my new dentist and I will be recommending others to go to her as well. Dr. Banaria explained everything in detail and had outstanding bed side manners. She was also gentle and thorough with the cleaning. I’ve been scared of going to the dentist ever since I can remember but the whole staff was extremely helpful in making me feel comfortable. They’re also very professional and efficient.

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

★★★★★

I hate going to dentist but simply amazed with dr Banaria she has patience and soft hands when putting anesthesia and doing procedure. She did an emergency root canal and I didn’t feel a thing. I also took my 5yr old and she didn’t even squeak or move made her feel so comfortable I was amazed there was no need for any other sedations like at other dentist do now a days. This is our new dentist love it highly recommend this office very clean and staff are also very nice.

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

★★★★★

Dr. Bavaria has been our dentist for about 3 years now. She is extremely caring and makes sure you leave her dental office being one hundred percent satisfied.  Her staff is super friendly. Her office is immaculate and everyone makes you feel welcomed

Joseph Benjamin S. from East Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Generally, I am a bit worried going to dentists because I had a terrible experience with my first dentist. However, Dr. Banaria is everything I’ve ever hoped for. I called to set up an appointment  with her, but no one answered at first. However, I got a call back on the same day and was able to set up an appointment. I believe I spoke with Dr. Banaria herself, and she was very patient with me being a first-time client. Dr. Banaria’s kind and welcoming aura will put you at ease, and you’ll know right away that you can trust her to take care of your dental needs. On top of that, her staff (shoutout to Connie and Maria) are incredibly sweet and professional. Their accomodation skills are truly top notch. Her office is also neat. Usually, dental offices scare me, but the ambiance in her office is so relaxing. I am so happy and blessed to meet Dr. Banaria! I will definitely come back and ask my entire family to go to her for all our dental needs. P.S…whoever gave her a bad review is a hater

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

★★★★★

She is my favorite dentist!!!!! Teeth cinching thing is in the past with Dr. Vivian Banaria. I seem to have problem with getting numbing to work but she really takes her time to make sure my gums are really numb before starting her work with me.   And that’s huge relief for me as I really hate to feel that needle poking sensation with your nerves. And she does through job, which is like bonus for me.   I think having updated equipment also really helps.  She always shows me what and how job was done by actually showing me worked on tooth with small mouth camera connected to screen.  It’s like now I know how my teeth actually look like.

Alma O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I have been a patient of dr vivian for 3 yrs, im so happy with her and her staff. dr. is very approachable and light-handed. i will for sure be a long term patient and so will my family .we all come here . i always recommend her to my friends and family because i know they will not be disappointed. thanks dr vivian!

Enid L. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

She is the best dentist I have visited in the past 4 years, she is professional, so is her staff, everyone is kind and very helpful, makes you feel at ease and at home, she explains what she is doing, gives you the option to choose and ask questions, It’s refreshing to meet people like her and her staff, they are like a breath of sunshine, or that craving you have fulfilled after searching. I would highly reccomend her, in fact I already have. I would give her an award myself if I could, she deserves it, she has people skills and professional interaction, I can tell she loves what she does, and takes her time to ensure your satisfaction Kuddos to her, I am sure she studied hard and God is in her, Thank you Dr. Banaria

Brittany V. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Absolutely love coming to this dentistry! It’s has such a friendly and welcoming environment! Dr. Banaria is absolutely the best! She’s so gentle when she’s working on you and makes you not cringe whenever you come here! I’m happy whenever I have to come in! Here staff are so amazing too! They definitely make sure your comfortable while your waiting. They are so friendly! This dentistry is definitely a place that everyone needs to come too! Definitely worth it!

Dr Banaria was terrific. We scheduled an appointment for both of our kids (ages 9 and 15 months) and she accommodated then back to back. She took a lot of time and care in examining both of our kid’s teeth and gums. She was super helpful and caring the entire time. The office itself was clean and inviting. The waitroom was cozy and even included a machine with a variety of teas and coffee to brew. I highly recommend her and will be coming back myself.

Dr. Vivian and her staff are excellent.  Dr Vivian is so caring with my kids and they feel welcomed and cared for.  My personal care is great and the best dentist I have been too.

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

★★★★★

She has been mine and my father’s go to dentist. The staff is friendly, herself is friendly and she always makes sure if you’re okay. It’s small, not busy which is perfect. This is a good dentistry and a very welcoming staff. Forever coming here.

John A. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

Dr. Banaria and her staff were incredibly friendly and personable. My x-rays were effortless, and the cleaning was thorough. Dr. Banaria spotted 2 cavities that my previous dentist hadn’t addressed, so I’m very fortunate to have booked an appointment with her. I would highly recommend Dr. Banaria to my friends and family!

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

★★★★★

When asked for a dentist referral, I ALWAYS say, “Dr. Vivian Banaria”! Many of our friends and family have become her patients. Dr. Banaria has the lightest touch. Root canals with her are no biggie. You’ll be able to eat a burger that night (believe me, I’ve done it!). Dr. Banaria is extremely thourough and takes the time to explain her diagnosis. You never feel you’re being rushed. I even look forward to my cleanings with her – my teeth feel so smooth and are so shiny afterwards. I can’t rave enough about her and her staff. Everyone is very friendly and you are instally put at ease upon arrival. She is our super star Dentist of choice!

★★★★★

Excellent. Dr. Vivian is the best dentist I have ever had. She has the lightest touch and explains procedures in great detail so you understand. I always recommend her to family and friends. She is a wonderful dentist with the most amazing bedside manner.

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

★★★★★

I’ve been looking for a good dentist for years!  My mother in law recommended Dr. Banaria and now all my family comes here. We’ve all had major work done. Both with and without insurance. Love her dental hygienist. All so sweet and efficient! Recommend to anyone!

Margaux B. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

From the moment I walked in to the moment I left, I had a great experience. The front desk (Brenda?) was really sweet and Dr. Banaria and Connie (I believe that’s her name) were very clean and thorough. The entire process was very professional and they were efficient. It’s not easy to find an honest dentist who gets the job done right. I’m sticking to this one! 🙂

Fiona H. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

This review is long overdue. I have been a patient for a year now and I’m never going to anyone else! Dr. Banaria and her staff are always so accommodating and gentle and they put up with my quirks! I ask for regular breaks during lengthy procedures and they’re so patient with me. Happy with all the services I have received here.

Shannen R. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

This dentist is the best dentist I’ve ever seen. She genuinely cares about her patients and their oral health. Being a Medi-Cal patient, I’ve had my share of bad dentists. She does not judge you and also has very fair prices if your insurance doesn’t cover it. I only wish I knew about her years ago. Would have saved me a lot of headache. Thank you so much.

Victoria M. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I highly recommend Dr. Vivian Banaria, she has the lightest hand, I barely feel any pain. Staff are very professional and nice. And the best part is the office is open on Saturdays. If you’re looking for a new dentist try Dr. Vivian, she gives the best honest care for all your dental needs.

Adalyd R. from Baldwin Park, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr Banaria is not only very professional but has a very gentle way of providing treatment. She is excellent both with children and adults. All three of my children used to be scared of the dentist and since coming to Dr. Banaria they no longer fear the dentist! Thank you for your wonderful service and the care with which you treat your patients.

L. C. (Source: Zocdoc)

★★★★★

Dr. Banaria and her staff are very warm and welcoming. Her treatment and examinations are very gentle and thorough. She is very mindful of the patient’s pain levels. If you have any fear of dental treatment, Dr. Banaria and her staff will assure you. I’m glad I found Dr. Banaria

I finally found a great dentist’s office! I’m so happy! Relieved! You know that numbing shot? The one that always makes me weep like a baby? Dr. Banaria’s administration of it was hardly even noticeable. I didn’t cry! I ALWAYS cry! I chose this office because of their no/low BPH fillings (Clearfil), but also based on my call with the male receptionist who so patiently answered my panicked questions. But my two visits there so far have been absolutely stellar. The office is very clean. There is no wait. They have no trouble negotiating with insurance or setting appointments. Everyone I’ve met there has been polite, efficient and kind. And they accept Denti-Cal. But what I really want to stress here is the quality of care with Dr. Banaria.  This is what I love about her work: She gives the shot with the lightest touch I’ve ever experienced. She explains in plain language what’s going on and what she sees. She offers a plan, but also isn’t forceful about procedures. She has never shamed me about the state of my teeth. She listens. She isn’t rushed. But also the procedures seem to take no time at all. I feel confident in her skill and knowledge. Today the assistant dropped the little mirror thing on the floor while they were working on my teeth. Dr. Banaria picked it up and left the room, returning with a new mirror, still in it’s wrapping. I’m telling you, this place is legit. It’s a sterile, well orchestrated business with a calm, highly skilled doctor at the head. So if you’re like me and have been avoiding the dentist because of past bad experiences, give Dr. Banaria a call. You’ll be in good hands.

Thank you so much Dr. Vivian! Super gentle and comforting. Im terrified of going to the dentist. You made the experience not scary. Very “ mom like” which made it easy to trust her and get a that no anxiety experience. Very professional and warm. Would only come to her for my dental needs.
