Yep, like everyone else, I love going to this dentist! Dr. Ana is so warm and friendly. She even greets you with a hug  (only if you want one of course!) She goes out of her way to make sure you are as comfortable as you can be in a dental chair…applying lip gloss, safety goggles…whatever you need to make your visit comfortable. And she does excellent work. So far I have had cleanings, a filling and a repair. Going next week for a cap replacement. So glad I found Dr. Neihoff and staff. I think you will be too.

I highly recommend this clinic. Doctor Neihoff is an excellent dentist, very empathic and available for her patients. She’s extremely knowledgeable, approachable and talented. I have utmost respect for her. Doctor Niehoff has taken excellent care of me over the years — from little woes to emergencies. Her clinic manager, Kathy is quite awesome too!

I recently broke my tooth so I looked on Yelp and discovered the great reviews for Beachside Smiles. Upon arrival Kathy the receptionist welcomed me with a huge smile and made me feel very comfortable. The business is very clean, relaxing and has a lot of great art work throughout. Dr. Ana came to the front and greeted me, we then went to one of the dental chairs. The office is wide open and most dental supplies are confined to the immediate area. They have x-rays performed as you sit in the dental chair. You don’t need to go from room to room like some dentists.  Dr. Ana explained everything before she began and offered a variety of ways to fix my tooth. She consistently asked if I had any pain or discomfort while looking inside my mouth.  She is very gentle even when grinding teeth. The procedure went over without a hitch. Dr. Ana and Kathy are awesome. I enjoyed every minute at Beachside Smiles. I will recommend this Dentist to everyone. Thank You young ladies for a job well done.

Dr. Ana is honestly the best dentist anyone could ask for. After hearing my sister rave about how great her dentist was, I decided to make an appointment with Dr. Ana even though I absolutely hated going to the dentist and had not been in quite awhile. All I can say is my sister was absolutely correct! Dr. Ana is the best! It was such a pleasant experience that started as soon as I walked into the office and was greeted by Cathy (the receptionist) who is awesome and such a pleasure to talk to. I have gone back every six months for my routine cleaning and not one time have I had to sit in the waiting area because they are always on time with my appointments. For anyone who is hesitant to go to the dentist (like me), Dr. Ana is the absolute best to go to because she will make the experience quick, easy and quite enjoyable!

Dr. Ana Niehoff has been my family dentist for many years. She is so friendly, caring and gentle. She always spends extra time to make sure I understand my treatment. Her staff Kathy and Lisa are also very friendly and always make me feel comfortable. I am very lucky to have her as my family dentist. Most highly recommended!! 🙂

I’ve been seeing Dr. Ana for 3 years now. You’re not supposed to looking forward to a enjoyable event when you go to the dentist, but when you know that Kathy in the reception will greet you in the nicest way, and that Dr. Ana will treat you using the best dentistry skills you’ve ever experienced, it does not sound so crazy anymore. (And if I’m crazy, at least I seem to be in good company based on what I read in the other reviews for this dentist office.) I also find that the conventional pain management is excellent on it’s own, and since it’s enhanced by Dr. Ana’s great personality and sense of humor, you’re in for a virtually pain free experience.

Dentistry at its best. My hubby starting seeing Dr. Ana Niehoff because her office was located close to his work and he found her five star online reviews. Skeptic by nature I was a bit hesitant to change dentist but did so at the urging of my hubby. I am soooo glad I did. I’ve been seeing Dr. Niehoff for about 1 1/2 years now for routine cleanings. She makes taking care of your teeth easy. She is doing a crown for me now. I was dreading the crown and felt like curling into a ball and start rocking at the first sound of the drill but my fear turned into a big bunch of nothing under Dr Niehoff’s care…. the process has been PAIN FREE. I’m going out on a limb here revealing my secret. Dr. Neihoff also injects Botox and Juvederm with absolute precision. No more long trips to Beverly Hills (sorry Epione Cosmetic Laser Center). I’m uncertain if Dr. Neihoff provides this service for individuals who are not patients in her practice but her gem of an office manager, Kathy could provide that information. Go see Dr. Neihoff, you will be happy you did. There location is easy access and there is plenty of free parking.

Dr. Ana is a wonderful dentist. She and her staff are super professional but also very friendly and put you at ease. Her office runs on time which I LOVE! I am in and out in a timely manner. I have been going to her for about 5 years. I have had cleanings and a couple of fillings. I am very happy with all the services I have received. I highly recommend Dr. Ana!!

I’m writing this to let others know what an incredible experience I had at Beachside Smiles. Dr. Ana, her office staff and dental hygienist were all very personable and professional at all times and her office equipment is very much state of the art.  Over the years, I’ve had dental work done by other dentists that left me with pain, discomfort and other problems needing further work. Not so here. Dr. Anna’s empathy, professionalism and attention to details and concern for patient comfort is quite exceptional. Her laboratory people are also top notch. Both when you enter and leave here you are smiling, comfortable with your choice to be treated by the exceptional Dr. Anna and her staff.

Doctor Ana and Kathy (office mgr) are amazing. They are compassionate, wonderful people. My whole family (including my teenage daughter) feel completely comfortable and anxiety free in Dr. Niehoff’s hands.

Tara K. from Carmel, IN (Source: Yelp)


Came here for the first time and had a great experience.  The dentist (Ana) was great.  Very warm and friendly person.  She also acted as my hygenist for this visit (which I don’t think is always the case, but was for this visit).  It was a very thorough cleaning.  The facility is clean and inviting, and conveniently located in the Bristol Farms shopping center with plenty of parking.  Glad to have found such a great dentist!

After 25 Years I was really nervous to go to any other dentist other then my family dentist who i’ve known my whole life but Dr. Ana was beyond amazing. She was so friendly and so pleasing to talk to that I forgot how much I usually dread getting my teeth cleaned. Staff was just as friendly! Thanks Dr. Ana I can’t wait to come back! 🙂

Diane M. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m so glad I found Beachside Smiles.  My husband and I both see Dr. Ana Niehoff.  We have both had experiences with dentists who flit in and out without really getting to know you. These impersonal dentists are also the ones who tend to not care if what they do is hurting. Dr. Niehoff is not one of those dentists. She is outgoing and friendly and tries to get to know her patients. She is also a very thorough dentist. She does not simply look at your charts and your teeth and leave. Her office is clean and the staff is warm and professional.  A major bonus is that we can make a 7:00a.m. appointment and not have to make up time off from work.

My family and I have been patients of Dr. Ana Niehoff and Beachside Smiles for several years and highly recommend this office. Dr. Niehoff, Kathy and Lisa are truly amazing, sweet individuals who really care about their patients. Dr. Niehoff possesses the highest integrity and has never recommended treatment unless absolutely necessary. I could not be more satisified with the dental work provided to my family and I.

Rich A. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Ana does excellent work and has the rare ability to make you look forward to a visit! Yes, it is anxiety and she always goes the extra mile to make sure she explores all the possible avenues for your dental needs. I know this personally as I have had major complications not related to traditional dental care. In addition Kathy, who is office manager, is a delight to work with! I should not forget to also mention Lisa who really takes teeth cleaning and maintenance very seriously but in a most friendly and informative way.

Michelle W. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best Dental Office I have experienced in the Southbay.  Right when you walk in the door you feel welcomed.  The staff there is wonderful and make you feel at home.  The cleaning is so delicate you don’t even feel like you are having your teeth scraped.  They are informative and on top of any questions you may have.  I have tried a few other dentists over the years and this office with their delightful “bedside manner” will be my go to place for teeth for years to come! Thanks so much- Michelle Wattles

I’ve been entrusting my gnashers to Dr. Ana for five years and am happy to recommend her as an excellent dentist and a delightful person. Not only is she extremely gentle and competent in her procedures, but the whole practice is beautifully run from reception to dentist’s chair. Highly recommended

This is my second year of going to Dr. Ana’s office. Last year I was there five times due to the extensive work I needed to get back to where I’m not afraid to smile. I originally picked her office due to the proximity to my work but soon learned that this coincidence was the best thing that could have happened. Dr. Ana and her staff, Lisa and Kathy, are beyond proficient in dental care.  Kathy, Ana’s assistant and just about the sweetest woman, works with you to find the best day and time for office visits and helps with any health insurance questions.  Lisa, ninja dental hygienist, takes on every teeth cleaning as a personal project where the absolute must be achieved and does so with the gentlest touch.  And last but definitely not least Dr. Ana is the best dentist I have ever been to. As I mentioned I had extensive work done which could feel overwhelming but not in her office. She answered all questions and guided me through the entire process. And of course, did an amazing job in restoring my smile. Her skills reach beyond dentistry; she’s a perfectionist when it comes to her work and just an amazing human being. Best combination.

My family has been seeing Dr Ana for a few years. What a wonderful change from the dental clinics that we had been forced to use in the past. Going to Dr. Ana’s is like stepping back in time. Kathy greets you personally when you arrive in the very comfortable lobby. Dr. Ana is always on time and cleans my teeth herself! It’s so refreshing, after years of dentists who just peek at your teeth after the hygienist is finished,to have a dentist who really gives her personal service and time. There’s usually an appointment within a few weeks however Kathy works with our crazy schedule and even calls us if there is an earlier cancellation that pops up!

Dee P. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place! Dr Ana is so fun, sweet and (most importantly) a great dentist! I started here recently based on a recommendation from another friend and so glad I did! I have had a regular teeth cleaning and I also needed a filling fixed and she has done both wonderfully. What’s also great about this place is Kathy at the front desk- so sweet and helpful! I couldn’t be happier with my experiences there- the best! Highly recommended!

Brenda J. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I referred a friend to this dentist, based on the reviews, and she loved the experience (she hates going to the dentist).  It was finally time for my checkup and I called and spoke with Kathy who could NOT have been any more pleasant!  She emailed me the required forms and followed up to make sure that I received them.   I went into the office and immediately felt at home.  Very welcoming atmosphere and Kathy was at the desk greeting me like an old friend. Dr. Ana performed all of the work and was so professional, likable, and entertaining.  At one point we were laughing with tears running down our faces.   I will definitely be back and will continue to refer friends to this practice.
A very positive experience!!

Laura O. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying, I LOVE going to the dentist.  I have loved it ever since I was young.  Leaving the dentist’s office with a mouth full of awesomely clean teeth is one of the best feelings ever!  So, keep in mind that the dentist is already a positive experience for me when I say that Dr. Ana is hands down the BEST dentist to whom I have been in my entire life.  She takes dental care to the next level. The receptionist Kathy is about the sweetest woman you’ve ever met, the new hygenist is KICK-A*# and Dr. Ana is truly one of the best out there.  The office manages to feel BOTH homey and welcoming and yet completely professional.  It is always SPOTLESSLY clean and smells wonderful.  Every single time I walk in the door and I’m greeted with the beautiful decor and Kathy’s smiling face I remember why I keep coming back. To top it all off Dr. Ana is GORGEOUS and manages to make everyone feel at ease.  If you aren’t like me and you don’t like going to the dentist, give this office a try, because it’s practically like going on vacation!  Haha!  🙂 I recommend Dr. Ana to everyone I know and can’t say enough positive things.  If you are searching for a new dentist look NO further.  You simply will NOT find a better dentist anywhere in the Beach Cities!!!   Get your pearly whites over to Beachside Smile ASAP and your mouth will thank you!

Carlie V. from Poway, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ana and her entire team are AMAZING!!! This is hands down the best Dental Office i have ever been to. It is so refreshing to walk in and be greeted by some of the friendliest people i have ever met. More importantly, Dr. Ana is INCREDIBLE at her work. I chipped my front tooth a while back, and Dr. Ana was able to completely fix the sharp edge of the tooth so that I didnt need a cap, and you cant tell it was ever chipped in the first place! I will not trust anyone else to take care of my teeth from now on. Also, Kathy will do whatever she can to schedule you for an appointment that works for you, even if you are super busy with work. 🙂

Dr. Neihoff is a gentle professional who offers more than routine dentistry. She is a component dentist first but definitely an artist with her ability to use Botox and Juvederm to reverse those nuisance signs of aging. Dr. Ana Neihoff not only takes care of the mouth, teeth, gums, and provides cosmetic improvement but she also understands those who want their appearance to look as good as their teeth. Dr. Neihoff has done three Botox injections over the past year for me and not once did I bruise or end up with the Oscar Night Freeze or any weird lop-sided facial feature. I just had my lips injected with Juvederm. My lips are naturally thin and nearly non-existent on top when I smile. I now have a noticeable upper lip that looks completely natural. I’m writing this review about 24 hours following injection and the slight swelling I experienced when I woke this morning is already gone. There is minimal bruising(I was able to cover with a light MAC tinted lipglass). I could not be happier! The forehead Botox injections I received at the same visit left absolutely no bruises or swelling. A million thanks to Dr. Neihoff.


Dr. Ana Niehoff has been crafting beautiful smiles for over 20 years. Her father was a dentist for 50 years and distinguished himself for the quality and care he gave to his patients. It was only natural that Dr. Ana would continue this legacy. Her sister is a dentist as well. Excellence is what one can expect when visiting her office. From the beautifully decorated space, to the quality and meticulousness of her work. “I always take time to listen to my patients”. Dr. Ana is passionate about the overall health of every patient. She has completed hundreds of hours of advanced training and postgraduate education to provide her patients with the latest technology in dentistry. She completed programs from Dr. John Kois, Dr.Frank Spear and Dr. Pete Dawson amongst many other highly accredited dental learning institutes. When Dr. Ana is not building smiles, she enjoys spending time at the gym, painting and having fun with her husband Dan and son Ian.
