THIS IS A LONG REVIEW PLEASE READ IT ALL!!! They have been in business since about 2005???? What?? Are you kidding me??? I have been in this area all my life, never known about them. I have gone to many dentist office at my age 41, it’s been a lot of dentists! Never in my life have I been to such a place where there is genuine caring, lovely people. I have to say that I really am impressed, and in sheer amazment how gentile and warm the entire office is to me and others. They constantly ask if you are ok, they care about your well being. I had to cancel a few time due to my busy schedule and they are so accomidating. I had to reschedule my appointment due to a little soreness but most of all I’m under a lot of stress, I am in the midst of a move , so my days are insane and that can cause my healing process to slow down. I had a call right away from the hygienist asking if I needed anything to just call. And so caring she said she just called to see how I was doing, INSANE! I truly love this place. Thank you, to all of you at bay dental. My new dental home!! Much love. Sylvia Estrada-Garcia.

I’ve been a patient here ever since I was a kid. The staff has always been friendly and patient. I’ve had bad experience with other placed that have given me anxiety but whenever I go back to Bay Dental it is as if I’m home. Went in yesterday for an extraction and everything was great. Alonzo and Dr Pandya were beyond patient and understanding. Everything was over within 5 minutes. Thank you all for such great service.

I was there today for my teeth cleaning what a excellent job she did took her time and very gentle I couldn’t believe I was so relax I almost took a nap.Same with having my teeth ex ray very gentle and when they was finished with me. My Dentist came in to check on me and wanted to make sure I was ok. They treat you like Family.And very clean . I can’t say enough about Bay Dental.

Oscar G. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best experience I have had at a dentist. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. They made me feel very comfortable my first visit and explained everything clearly. Everything is clean and pretty basic dental decor. I love the flat screens in each dentist chair, makes you feel more comfortable and entertained during waits. The Dr. (Dr. Pandya) was very friendly and welcoming as well. He is very quick and professional. Best and quickest service I have had for multiple fillings. Will come back for sure.

I have now taken my mother and my neighbor, both in their 80’s and both afraid to go to the dentist. Both of them are no longer afraid of the dentist because Sunen Pandya is an EXCELLENT dentist. He put them at ease, spent enough time explaining to them their condition and the recommended course of action. His staff is courteous and helpful. I highly recommend Bay Dental Center.

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


I went back to have an implant done. Dr. Pandya and his team took care of my fears and doubts. Then the work began. Dr. Pandya performed the surgery and the whole team of dentists and assistants was spot on during my treatment. It has been more than a year and the implant feels like the original tooth. I will keep recommending them.

Janet Mazes-Martin (Source: Google)


This is the best dental office I’ve ever gone to. The staff are knowledgeable, caring, kind, and professional. I consider them all as part of my extended family. They’re also very patient with people, like myself, who are a lit’l bit uncomfortable/ uneasy/ anxiety when dental service are needed…sometimes I can be a big baby O:-).  I don’t have those uneasy feeling/experiences anymore. I thank God for leading my family to them. Keep up the excellent work Bay Dental.

I have been a client at Bay Dental Center for quite some time and have been very satisfied with the quality of work and the friendly, helpful attitude of the staff members. I have had implants done at this office and was very impressed with the attention paid to detail and to my comfort, and after care. Post procedure, the doctor called me at my home to check that all was as expected and to make sure I was following their post surgery instructions. Bay Dental Center is a wonderful facility with all the latest technology available and very highly trained doctors. I would highly recommend them for all your dental needs.

V. H. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I had an infected Wisdom tooth, and could not eat for about 2 days. I did not have a regular dentist (or insurance), and i broke down and  called 1 800 Dentist. Well, they were really nice, and refered me to Sunen Pandya at Bay Dental Center. I was so scared of going to dentist, that i almost did not go. On monday, i had an short exam and got a prescription for some medicine. Two days later i went to have the extraction done, but his staff was very nice and they reassured me. I even got to watch a movie in the chair while waiting for the dentist. The procedure took all of 5 minutes, it  was painless and he explained what I need to do in the procedure. I had hardly any pain and barely any blood loss after the extraction. (This was an extraction, not  an oral surgery.) They offer a payment plan, but you have to be eligible. I love this dentist and am going back for a follow up. I recommend this dentist to anyone!!

Cindy G. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very pleased with finding this Gem! Staff and Dentist are friendly and very professional.  Very thorough.  Give you wonderful options for payments.  I chose as I go because I have a health equity card for medical and dental expenses. Very happy I chose this dentist.  So many options out there but this is the place if you want great work done.

I had a amazing experience today with Dr. Sunen Pandya! I had an emergency situation to which he was able to accommodate promptly. Our situation was a difficult one as we needed to get a crown done and within hours he was able to give me a permanent crown! Dr. Pandya is a true professional and that reflects in the quality of his work and attentiveness. His hard work is truly appreciated and we look forward to our next appointment with him. (Hopefully this time with an advance notice.

Tawanna H. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been with this dental office for years. From the moment I entered the office and they provided me with a questionnaire with items such as: what has your experience been with dentists in the past and what is your comfort level. I WAS HOOKED! I have had regular cleanings there as well as several procedures and they have always taken good care of me. An elementary school teacher wouldn’t lie.

Alexandra L. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


The hospitality, caring, and sophistication of this place is truly what makes the doctors here an Inspiration to be a better person in life! My first visit they explained to me everything thoroughly. Every visit has been great ever since. I lived in the Southbay my whole life and dealt with a few dentists but none of them will EVER compare to Bay Dental Care’s efficiency and customer service!

Michael C. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sunen Pandya and his staff were friendly, professional, and a comfort to me during my implant procedure. His after-care instructions were clear and concise which were a great help during my recovery period. I looked at other locations for the same procedure, and felt comfortable enough to make the decision for Dr. Pandya to do the procedure at half the cost. If you are considering the implant procedure, don’t hesitate any longer. Please visit his office at 16910 S. Hawthorne Boulevard, Lawndale, CA. Trust and believe me, you won’t be disappointed. I would recommend Dr. Pandya to anyone.

Kristi F. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a fan.  I really don’t like going to the dentist.  I’d rather be any where else.  I get panicky after about 2 hours in the chair. The staff are pleasant and professional.  I had some pain due to the crowns I needed, but Dr. Pandya actually made two sets of crowns for me. One in the color I chose, and one in the color he recommended. It turned out he knew what he was talking about. My smile looks great!

Theresa J. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


My visit to the dental office on the 16th of November was a wonderful experience the employees there were very nice and very helpful when it came to explaining what was going to take place with my mouth especially this young lady named Adriana she was perfect her attitude made me want to stay there all day she was so nice and polite to me I wish there were more people like her in this world I will definitely recommend others to go there cause I will definitely be returning back there Thanks to all of the employees there ..Therese Jamison.

As someone who used to feel that any dentistry was traumatizing, finding myself enjoying my dental visits is remarkable! Every step, making the appointments – arriving to the office – whatever procedures – is met with professional, caring and friendly staff. They have provided me with extra gentle care, helped me overcome my fears ( and didn’t make me feel foolish for them) and restored my winning smile. This is the dental office you’ve been looking for!

Dr. Sunen Pandya & Dr. Toral Pandya (a husband & wife team) are simply genuine and caring human beings. They take care of their patients. My twin sister and I both go here with our work insurance and our mom goes here with MediCal LA Care. The quality of care we receive is equal and excellent for all three of us. We truly can’t praise this place enough because your care and attention is not insurance based. They will go to extremes to get you a smile that makes you proud. We love our dentists….and we’ve never said those words before.

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


Best dental office I’ve been to. They have very competitive pricing and don’t try to force up sales on you. I had them replace all of my amalgam fillings with composite. I was quoted $2800 at another office that is an obvious rip off(based on Yelp reviews), but this office quoted me $1800 and it is quality work. My girlfriend now goes and also received stellar treatment!!

Kenneth Patrick Wheeler (Source: Facebook)


As always, the professionalism and outright kindness of the staff is fantastic. I have been coming for years and I am fortunate to have a relatively pain-free experience every time. Today, the went above and beyond even their top-notch service by assuring me in an incredibly crucial area of need. The entire staff is the epitome of what all dentist offices should aspire to be. I have recommended family and friends for years and as today has proven, they are reason I will continue to do so for years to come! Thank you Bay Dental!

I could not recommend Bay Dental more! I have a lot of anxiety when going to any doctor’s appointment, so I typically avoid scheduling appointments until I’m in noticeable pain. I started experiencing severe pain in my right molars that was in turn causing massive migraines and ear aches. I called Bay Dental and they were able to get me an appointment right away. Once I got there, I was at ease to find that the protocols and measures in place due to COVID. After getting examined and taking x-rays they discovered I had 2 huge cavities that needed root canals and crowns. What I appreciated most about the doctor, is he told me that he could fix anything I needed, but what was most important to him was to make sure that we prevented this type of situation from happening again. After explaining that my depression leads to poor dental care, and my anxiety about coming to the doctor causes the issue to get even worse, he encouragingly told me that we could come up with a plan to make sure I was receiving consistent care that allowed me to feel comfortable and welcome at the office. Since then, I’ve had a 2nd appointment that included 2 more fillings and a teeth cleaning. The dental hygenist who performed the teeth cleaning gave me super helpful tips and information that I’ve never been told before. I also appreciate how their billing works. It’s very clear and concise. It lays out how much the procedure costs, what the insurance pays, and what you pay. They provide multiple payment options depending on the procedure that ranges from monthly payments, credit lines, partial payments (half and half), and of course payment in full. Overall, it’s been a great experience at Bay Dental. I’ve never felt more taken care of at a dental office before, and I will continue to get my dental care done here regularly.

During a routine cleaning it was noted that I had a crown that needed replacement. I had noticed that in my flossing that the floss frequently caught and broke on that particular tooth. So I knew that I had a problem in that area. The good news was that Bay Area Dental was able to take off the old crown and install a new one in just 2 hours. They can do this because they make their own crowns right at the office.

Solid Customer Care.  I have been a patient for the past 8 years and my fiancé and now husband became a patient for the last 3 years. Dr. Sunen Pandya & Dr. Toral Pandya are an ‘Impressive Team’!  “Mabel” is truly one of the most gentle yet most detailed-results-oriented dental hygienist I have ever experienced and their dependable front office staff, especially “Maria” is loyal, tenacious and has amazing follow-through.  I travel all the way from Whittier to their office in Lawndale because although I suffer from Odontophobia, and, I have learned to trust Dr. Sunen and his team to provide me with the best space in which I can feel I am in excellent hands. I am been convinced for 8 years now that Bay Dental Center is a positively unique experience overall and you can count on me to highly recommend Bay Dental Center.  Thank you kindly for your expert customer care. ~Roxy Campos-Lara.

I love this place. You don’t really hear that from someone talking about a dental office, but all staff make u feel real comfortable. The dentist is wonderful. They cater to your particular needs. I Would recommend this dental office to friends and family. And whoever needs a caring and great dentist.

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


While this is a business, we have always had good experiences at Bay Dental. Honestly, one of the best cleanings I have ever had. We do not have dental insurance, so we are upfront about it. I can understand the ratings differences. We have had good service here.

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


I been avoiding the dentist for years, after the last dentist told me i needed gum surgery. So when i went to Bay Dental Center i was scared that they would say the same. But i was told that i didn’t need it, which was a great relief. I had a few cavities that needed to be fixed, Dr. Pandya Made sure it was almost pain free. Great staff and great service.

Tye B. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr Sunen for the past 8 years. He is a very knowledgeable Dentist whom has totally reconstructed my smile and made my teeth and gums healthy again. We are in the process of installing the implants needed to complete the restoration. My teeth were HORRIBLE when I started seeing Dr Sunen and I am totally happy with his professionalism and chair side manner. He explains all the procedures to me and why they are needed.  His staff is very helpful and courteous and the reminder calls are great.

I’ve been with Bay Dental for 8 years and love Dr. Sunen Pandya. I TRUST Dr. Pandya and his entire staff. I HIGHLY recommend Bay Dental Center especially to anyone who is frightened of the dentist… I use to be that terrified patient until I met Dr. Sunen Pandya. He is VERY gentle. Bay Dental cares about all their patients. They even sent me a text message saying Happy Birthday. I don’t know any Dr.’s office that does that. I actually look forward to every dentist appointment. They are the BEST in the South Bay. Thank You Dr Pandya and Staff.

I highly recommend, if you are looking for a Doctor who cares about you and your dental health this is the place for you. Their work ethic is unmatched from their friendly, attentive receptionist to their honest and diligent Doctors. For months we couldn’t find a Doctor who was able to place dental implants on my father in law until we came across Dr. Pandya and his team. They not only transformed his smile but also his life. He has this new self confidence and embraces his new smile.

Erick J. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friendly and great atmosphere. The staff is really helpful and the doctors there give you details of any work that needs to be done and let YOU decide what YOU want to do..I really liked that!!The prices are really good if you have insurance or not..They’ll take care of you…….Thanks Bay Dental!

Cirque Du Soleil Chef D. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first time here and immediately I was greeted by a cheerful receptionist. I filled out the necessary paperwork and to my surprise the wait was not more than 5-10 minutes. I was led into a very clean area to wait in the chair to get checked out. I was pleasantly surprised to find that they have the very best equipment here. Everyone is so friendly and informative. The Doctor was amazing. He sat down with me and thoroughly explained to me what was happening with my jaw and promptly referred me to a specialist. Honestly, this was the best dental visit ever. And you don’t get to say that very often do ya! Very happy~

They did an amazing job on my crowns. The staff is very attentive to your needs. I bartend and they always conform to my needs with my ever changing schedule. My front teeth were replaced and gap closed in one day. I’m only sore on my implants and they hurt solely because of my gums. It has been. Great experience. I actually never saw a day where I could honestly say my teeth were good. I didn’t get root canals finished until I came here. It was 5 years later and they helped me get a beautiful smile. This staff is amazing and would recommend to anyone.

Just great dentists and staff. Highly recommend to anyone. Been there a few years and have no complaints at all. They even do a follow up call the day after ur visit to see how u r. Even if it’s just a cleaning. Bay Dental Center is a 5 star plus rating. Thank you to ALL THE STAFF!!

Broke my crown on Saturday.  Just the porcelain so  no pain, not an emergency.  I called them Tuesday and made an appointment for Thursday (my first available time).  They saw me exactly at my appointment time.   Dr. Pandya had me out the door in 1 3/4 hours with a perfect new crown.  He is so good, I didn’t need anesthesia (my choice).  The crown that broke was over 30 years old from another dentist. Now they make the crown in the office.
