Terry O. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely wonderful experience!!! All the staff are very welcoming, friendly, and helpful. I usually feel uneasy about going to the dentist but I felt comfortable with being there. Dr. Tehrani was informative and did a great job with my crowning. His overall great energy and personality kept me in good spirits during and after my procedure. It was my first time there and won’t be my last! I recommend this dentistry and Dr. T’s work to anyone and everyone

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


I was recently referred to dr Tehrani by a friend. From the moment I entered, I was greeted by the receptionist. There was no wait, just the time it took me to fill out the forms. This is very unusual because my previous dentist had long wait times. Dr T spent a lot of time explaining my condition and what had to be done to move forward. The hygienist was great. This was the best cleaning I’ve had in a long time. Few appointments later and my teeth feel great and healthy again. The office is clean and the equipment looks new. I highly recommend this office. Currently just started braces with their orthodontist. No more Hassle of having to go to different offices since they have a specialist for all the different specialties. Thank you all, you have a patient for life.

My former dentist was so horrible that maybe this review has a bias… But frankly since I started to go to Dr. Tehrani I have been extremely pleased with both his services and the competence of his staff. Very personable, friendly, not pushing into you getting some gold fillings. Nothing bad to say about him. Also what I really appreciate is that they are extremely punctual which for me is probably one of the most important factor as I HATE to wait

SB. M. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Tehrani’s for about 8 years, after moving from my dentist of 22 years from the west side. The move had to do with needing someone closer to my home, when my children were little.  I found myself extremely lucky to have found a quality dentistry in my own backyard.  Dr. Tehrani is a true professional. He also “saved me” during a dentai emergency a few years ago.  Dr. Tehrani and his entire team are warm and friendly. His dental hygenists are very personable and do a thorough job.  The office is clean, well run, and the scheduling is seamless…No wait time although they are busy.  I highly recommend Beach Citiies Dentistry, Dr. Tehrani and his team.  Plenty of parking

I love Dr. Tehrani ! In addition to great dental care, I just finished my Invisalign, and my teeth look perfect again. I am now going to bring my son to Dr, Tehrani and leave Dr. Holden whom I have never been happy with.

Wendi S. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


The whole office is friendly and professional. Going to the dentist has never been my favorite pastime but Dr Tehrani makes it as pleasant as possible. I never have to wait! Can you believe it? When does that ever happen at a medical office? Over the years I’ve been to many dentist and this is by far my favorite

Edna M. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful dentist and great staff.  It is the only time I have gone to a dentist and had a happy feeling when I walked into the office.  Staff is friendly and dentist is terrific.  My neighbor raved about this dentist and she was so right.  I recommend Dr. Tehrani most highly

Amy N. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Tehrani for years, so this is long overdue. 1) His office is clean, and the front desk is organized and friendly. Wait times are typically very short, too. You can tell a lot about a doctor’s office by how the front is run, and this place wins 5 stars for that element 2) His hygienists are very thorough, and don’t try to guilt trip you if you have some plaque buildup. Other places I’ve been, I feel like I was constantly defending myself: “Yes I flossed, I promise!” 3) Dr. Tehrani is caring, thoughtful, and personal. He is extremely professional (I never feel like he’s trying to sell me on something), and just an all-around great healthcare provider. 4) Added bonus: free parking. =)

Absolutely love Dr. Tehrani. My daughter was having some problems after having her wisdom teeth pulled by another dentist and Dr. Tehrani followed up with the dentist to make sure my daughter’s issues were addressed. He is the BEST!!

Sofia J. from Lomita, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is so great the girls are really nice and  friendly. the Dr is amazing and very patient with my Winnie self. I had a bad tooth that was very infected and painful he took care of it the same day I was able to be seen he has gentle and made me feel better in no time kept checking to see how I felt. thank u !!! after going back once the infection was gone I needed a root canal done the Dr that did it was super nice, gentle and explained everthing she also took her time not in a rush to be done with me, Did I mention I fell asleep not once but twice will she was performing the procedure lol.. wow. it does cost more than other offices but the work is wayyyyyyy better than other offices and its done right the first time I will definitely recommend this office and will continue to use Dr Tehrani as my personal dentist thanks for all u do

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


Obviously it has been close to 4 years since the last review and considering that I have had my fair share of experiences with dentists, I have to say that Dr. Tehrani is by far one of the best.  He is friendly, professional, and consistently looking out for his client’s best interest.  His staff is great and I have no complaints!! He even has helped my son with his phobia of dentists.  I cannot recommend him and his staff enough!!

My daughter Estelle just completed 2 years of orthodontic treatment at Beach Cities Dentistry and we are thrilled with the results. Her teeth look amazing and we are so happy with the care and attention shown to her by Dr. Tehrani’s office. Very highly recommended!!

Ian S. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tehrani has been great so far. The reason I stopped going to my last dentist is because they’re always trying to sell you something, and the front office staff went downhill. The office staff at Beach Cities has been very friendly and Dr. Tehrani wasn’t trying to get me to buy toothbrushes and other products which can obviously be found at Target for a fraction of the cost. He focused on what I was there for…. My Teeth. I’m glad to have found this dentist. I, like most people, dreaded going to the dentist. Dr. Tehrani made me feel comfortable and was very thorough during my visits.

Nestor L. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tehrani continues to provide excellent dental services.  They have implemented common sense COVID 19 safeguards.  The appointments are always on schedule.  The teeth cleaning is thorough and efficient.  The explanations regarding the X-ray and examination results are understandable.  Very professional and well managed dental office.

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


I have been going to Dr. Tehrani for 10 years. I always feel like I am in good hands with the doctor and his staff. They are friendly and make every visit very easy. I love how they send out reminders via text and email! I’ve never had to wait long to be seen and they work quickly all while doing a great job!

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


Dr. Tehrani is the most honest and professional dentist I’ve ever had. The hygienist (Samira) is very thorough and professional and also has a great smile all the time. The whole staff are just amazing. I would never go anywhere else!

Christal W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Beach Cities have taken great care of me and my teeth for years. Has always been accommodating, clean, and timely. Dr. Tehrani makes sure to explain what is needed and doesn’t recommend unnecessary costly procedures. Now he is taking excellent care of my Mother.

My wife has been going to Dr Tehrani for years and she sent me to him!! Let me just say that he and everyone in the office is amazing!!!!! Dr Tehrani did wonders on my teeth. I am 48 years old and I’ve had braces for the last year and a half, when they removed braces I did not feel like they were my teeth!!  They look SO AMAZING!!!! I am so pumped right now!!!!! Super amazing dentist and and staff!!! Do yourself a favor and see Dr Tehrani!!!!

I am a long-time patient of Beach Cities Dentistry. I have run the gamut of dental procedures; filings, crowns, root canals, and a very complicated implant procedure. I was within days of a routine dental cleaning when the COVID-19 virus caused the lock-down we have all experienced in LA county. So, when Dr. Tehrani was able to reopen for dental care, I was contacted immediately to reschedule my procedure. I am in a vulnerable group and I so appreciate Dr. Tehrani’s sensitivity to my status. Arriving for my appointment with the hygienist, Samaria, was safely garbed in PPE, full face covering and took my temperature and asked some pertinent questions regarding my health. The office was immaculate and the procedure areas were freshly sanitized and everything Samaria needed was in sterile wrapping. I felt completely safe and secure knowing the areas were sterile and my health and safety was foremost in their new protocols. Thank you Dr. Tehrani and Samaria, You Rock!

K. D. from Modesto, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my dentist for 10 years, I’m bummed I relocated because after my bad experience with others it made me realize how great Dr. Tehrani and his staff are. Very caring and compassionate. I would highly, highly recommend Dr. Tehrani, especially if you are nervous about seeing a dentist.

Susan C. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really love Beach Cities Dentistry. They are always accommodating and helpful and super nice. They also do orthodontics and my children have had a great experience While getting their teeth straightened. I would highly recommend them.

Kathy H. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Tehrani and his staff.  I am a nervous patient and they take extra time with me to make me comfortable.  I moved to Palo Verdes 5 years ago but still drive to see him because he is so wonderful.  I highly recommend this office because he is a great dentist and has wonderful staff.

H. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tehrani and staff are amazingly wonderful.  I have a trust in the Dr. and his staff. Everything is clean, neat, Dr. and staff are amazingly patient, gentle and kind.. as I have an innate fear of dentists since I was little (bad experience).  Gosh, Dr. Tehrani has been our family dentist for as long as I can remember — 15-20 years?  I’ve lost count.  Would not think of ever going anywhere else..    If that wine offer is still good, yes, I will take a glass… lol Dr. Tehrani has a very good sense of humor too

Chia Schuler (Source: Google)


Dr. Tehrani by far was the best dentist I have ever met in life. I was traumatized by bad experiences and did not see a dentist for almost 9 years before I met Dr. Tehrani, imagined all the dental issues I had at that point. He was extremely patient and kind with my fear and step by step fixed all my dental issues. I took his advice gotten braces and I have never been happier with my teeth. My husband and son have been going to him too! I am forever grateful for a dentist like him

Ron M. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


You couldn’t find a better office with more professional and caring staff. Dr. Tehrani is not only a great as dentist but also explaining the needed procedures you need immediately and what you can put off for future visit. You couldn’t be in safer hands!

Lauren Y. from Vancouver, WA (Source: Yelp)


I have gone here for the past few years and Dr. Tehrani is the only dentist I will ever go to. Period. He is so personable, very patient with my anxious, wimpy self, always checking to make sure I am comfortable and in no pain. He does such a great job very quickly and perfectly (other dentists leave stuff crusted on your teeth and you end up swallowing it or you bite down and your jaw feels weird). Prices are very low, especially for Manhattan Beach. I love the staff, too, especially Lindsay. Can’t recommend him highly enough!

Art J. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I switched my dentist from Beverly hills to Beach cities Dentistry when I moved to South Bay.  I am very pleased with Dr. Tehrani.  He restored my courage to see a dentist again.  One of the best professional caring ones in the field

Jonathan S. from Temecula, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down, Dr Tehrani is the best dentist that I have ever been to. If I could give 6 stars, I would. Both my wife and I goto him for our dentist. Dr Tehrani is a very technically skilled dentist with a great demeanor with his patients. He has tons of experience in dentistry and knows the best way to fix your dental issues. Any soreness that I may have had from treatments, goes away quickly. He also tells you exactly what he is doing every step of the way, which I very much appreciate. Not only is Dr Tehrani a great dentist, but he is also a great person. He sincerely cares for his patients, which is hard to find these days. When he heard that my father had passed, Dr Tehrani called me to personally pass on his condolences. That level of care for patients is unmatched. Always felt like I was going to see old friends when I had an appointment. He never pushes or “sells” his patients to pursue any treatments that are not necessary. There may be other options available, but doing those is compound to you, no pressure. He patiently walks his patients through the pros and cons of every treatment option in detail, which is great. Additionally, there is also an orthodontist associated with his office that comes in once a month, so that is super convenient too if you need that. The entire staff is great too, from the hygienists to Kelly in the front office, they will take care of you. I never had to wait more than 5 minutes for an appointment and they were always able to squeeze me in, if needed. Parking can sometimes be challenging on the top level due to Kaiser, but I have always found a space in the downstairs lot, when needed. I cannot recommend this dentist enough!!

Carrie B. from Wilmington, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 10 year old daughter was deathly afraid of fillings but yesterday she said post visit, “that was easy and painless”. I thought I would literally have to strap her to the chair and today she commented, “Dr Tehrani is the best dentist ever”. Thank you to the entire team for your patience and kindness.

Zoe M. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was the most enjoyable experience I’ve ever had at the dentist in 29 years! When your dentist makes your day it really says a lot. Go to this dentist!

Kari H. from Playa Vista, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


After 15 years, I had to find a new dentist as mine was no longer covered by my insurance.  I found Dr. Tehrani after much searching on the internet and on my insurance company’s website.  I am so glad I decided to start coming here!  The staff is so friendly, Dr. Tehrani is competent, friendly and does great dental work. I recently had two cavities filled and have had no problems with the filling work.  I also had a root canal done and the procedure was painless and done in about an hour. They don’t try to sell me services that I don’t need and I know their advice is trustworthy and valuable. I never have to wait more than 5-10 minutes before being seen and parking is so easy

Danielle O. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Tehrani is amazing!  And the office staff as well!  Very kind, personable, and they do great work.  I will recommend anyone to go to Beach cities Dentistry.  I have never liked a dentist so much!

Orlando C. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tehrani is the absolute best. Been going here for over a decade. If i moved to Alaska, I would fly down to make my appointments. I recommend him to all my friends, family and co-workers.

Christina Manos (Source: Google)


I’ve been coming to see Dr. Tehrani for 20 years and I’ll never see another dentist until he retires! At my first visit, he asked about my history, any problems, etc. I mentioned that I got headaches very regularly and he asked if I grind my teeth while sleeping. I had no idea but turns out that was the problem, he made me a soft mouth guard to wear at night and it really saved me, I am forever indebted to him! Aside from that, the technicians and front office staff are wonderful – very flexible and always on time, I never have to wait more than a minute or two.

Homayoon H. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Tehrani is one of the best dentists that I have seen and believe me I have seen many! He is caring, honest and does a great job! Since two years ago he has done a number of services for us from major restoration to cosmetics and everything was done in a very professional and friendly environment with reasonable prices. My whole family drives from Beverly Hills to see him and the trip is completely worth the experience and result
