So I walked into Bixby Knolls Modern Dentistry quite reluctant and skeptical due to having bad experiences from past dental offices.  I have spent a lot of time dentist hopping and so I knew that they would be a disappointment similar to all the other dental practices.  The front office staff was really professional yet down-to-earth (not snobbish).  James, the tech was AMAZING! He is a cordial, friendly, and patient young man.  He explained everything along the way, explained all the machines prior, changed gloves accordingly, and wiped everything down. I found him to be quite positive, jovial, and genuine. Then the moment came, when the front office staff would walk into the room and tell me about all the expensive additional procedures that I would need.  Surprisingly, (different from my last dental office where I needed to pay $368.00) my total fee was $14.42 using my insurance for all my periodontal care…..  And the dentist! Can you believe that he was gentle AND personable.  My cleaning actually did not hurt 🙂 I was not anxious in his care, nor did I have to raise my hand or bite the equipment due to sharp pains, or suffer a facial spray bath from the mouth hose.  They took their time and did a great job. My husband’s appointment was right after mine and he typically HATES the dentist experience.  He came out smiling with his goodie bag and vowed that he will now be seeing the dentist regularly.  I decided then and there, to schedule my 11 y/o son’s appointment so that he can finally have a great dental experience as well. Oh! and the office with all its equipment are new and clean.  What a wonderful experience; I left feeling rejuvenated with a spring in my step and a song in my heart. Thank you Bixby Knolls Modern Dentistry!

My mom referred me to this dental place and I must say the staff is very kind and warm welcoming. Layla the receptionist helped me out a great deal. I don’t have dental insurance and she was able to work with me. THANK YOU Bixby Knolls Modern Dentistry. Keep up the great work.

They are awesome real polite and the procedure was painless. I had one cavity on my wisdom tooth pulled out, second one decade pulled out and the third one was a done graft. I am completely happy with this place. I RECOMMEND THIS DENTISTRY.

I was really sad to leave my dentist in Orange County because I really liked him and his staff, but I am really glad I found this dental office near my new place. Dr. La-Pham is very nice, professional, honest and I was very comfortable communicating with him and asking him questions. He took his time explaining all of my concerns, and treated me with respect at all times. Doctor is honest, does not try to sell you any unnecessary treatments or procedures. He reviewed my X-Rays and said your teeth look great, come back for a cleaning in 6 months and keep up your good oral hygiene. I asked about bleaching and he said to wait a little (since I just had my braces removed) and he said I could come back and check out their whitening kits or buy some crest strips at the store. Hygienist is very sweet, took her time cleaning my teeth and made sure I was happy with everything. Dental assistants were also very nice and accommodating, they kept checking in on me to make sure I was okay. The girls in the front are nice as well, even though I was one of their last patients I never felt rushed. The complete opposite, they were very understanding of my work schedule and the fact I work in LA and the traffic to get back home is crazy. Oh they gave me a bag with floss, toothbrush and floss which is perfect to carry in my purse. Thank you Bixby Knolls Modern Dentistry, I’ll be back in 6 months.

Today was my first time coming to  Bixby knolls Modern Dentistry. They were very kind and caring  and made me feel so comfortable. They are truly modern like the name says with modern equipment and techniques.   Dr La Pham was very   Personable.   This is my new dentist for sure!!!

Elizabeth V. from Southern California, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have found a dentist that I am going to be coming on a regular basis! The office is very clean and inviting.  Everything, from the furniture to the technology, is new and up to date.  In this technological world, it is great to see this dental office has embraced technology to improve patient experience and better streamline the registration process.  From filling out medical history forms to signing documents, everything is done on a hand-held device and on digital signing pads.  The front desk individuals are pleasant and are efficient in checking me in. The dental assistants are patient and personable! They take the time to know you as an individual while prepping you for the dentist.  They are knowledgeable and make you feel at ease. Dr. La-Pham has a sense of humor yet professional and passionate – He is thorough in his work and makes the dental experience painless and enjoyable. He made sure I was comfortable and took great care and time in explaining x-ray results and the procedures needed. During the procedure, he would stop to ask how I was feeling. Overall, I am very satisfied with my treatment plan.  I HIGHLY recommend this dental office to anyone who is in need of dentistry services. This dental office does have specialists; an endodontist and an oral surgeon.

I just moved to this area and was looking for a new dentist. The office staff and dentist team have exceeded my expectations. The dentist is very thorough and explains my procedures. He is very gentle when giving shots and it was not uncomfortable for me. As far as payment options they are great. They really work with you and listen!

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


Finally, I found a great dentist! Went in to get a crown after I left my previous dentist in complete disgust! The office is in a great location, office staff great, and Dr La- Pham was teriffic! I explained my situation and he installed the crown THAT DAY! I knew dentistry could be easy, I was just reluctant to change dentists for whatever reason. The whole experience was easy, they took my insurance, office and equipment was modern, and most of all they LISTENED! I cannot recommend this place enough. If you think your dentist is bad, go here and they will make you a happy customer.

Monica M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Changed my insurance and decided to choose this office since they were smack dab in the middle of my home and work. Totally love that they are open late two days of the week so that I don’t have to miss work. Dr. La Pham and his staff are definitely amazing and have made me feel comfortable each time I went. Did a dental procedure about a month ago which I was a nervous wreck, but Dr. La Pham and J made me feel better and even laughed about it after. Angela was also very helpful when it came down to getting authorization for the procedure and telling me what to expect my cost will be. On top of that, the office looks so nice and clean! I guess that’s where the “modern” part comes from for this place lol. Looks like this will be my official dentist office 🙂

Michael S. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hadn’t been to a dentist in about two years before trying this place out. I was weary of going to a place that just opened, but it was worth it. The staff was welcoming and accommodating. Dr. La-Pham was down-to-earth and transparent. The technology there made my old dentist look like they were living in the dark ages! The only downside was the fact that there was more work to be done on my teeth than just cleaning. BUT, my fillings and root canal procedure were way easier and faster than I could imagine. Definitely would recommend.

Kara T. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sooo I hadn’t been to the dentist in about ten years..(yikes I know) I was completely terrified and my nightmare came true that unfortunately, I needed a root canal. Their team from the staff, to the dental assistant, and obviously the Dr, made me feel so comfortable and safe. Getting a root canal sucks…but these guys made it as easy as it can be! Highly recommend!! Thanks guys!

Thai M. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t been to a dentist in about 7-8 years…and after coming to Bixby Knolls Modern Dentistry, I won’t let that happen again. Dr. La-Pham really educated me on the importance of maintaining healthy teeth and issues pertaining to my dental health. Everyone on staff was awesome and made an effort to provide the best services. Equipment and furniture was all brand new and it was super clean. Definitely a fun trip to the dentist, I would recommend coming here

Lin D. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr La-pham is one of the best dentist there is.  With modern technology in the office and very clean!  A young dentist who listens to his patients.  He explains everything that is needed and is very honest.  Can’t go wrong with him

Sarah Grimsbo (Source: Facebook)


With the advanced technology utilized at BKMD, I discovered I have a fully grown sideways wisdom tooth. I can’t believe it! Great first experience and already scheduled to be back in 6 months. Would def recommend!

This dentist office is amazing! Brand new location with state of the art equipment. I don’t like dentist offices at all, whoever, I love this place. They treated me very well and cared about about my condition. I actually look forward to the other work that I need done on my teeth. Kinh La-Pham DDS is the best ever! His technician James was great and was great to talk with. Karina and Angela were awesome as well. I can’t say enough great things about this place and the staff working there. I highly recommend this place to everyone.

Brenda R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never come into an office and felt so welcomed. Especially in the dental industry they are so busy with paperwork, payment & selling you something, that they quickly forget to keep the customer comfort in the center of what they do. The staff made my children and I feel as if we were a part of their community already. I definitely recommend this office to anyone who struggles with nervousness about going to the dentist or building trust after having a bad customer service experience.  They are professional, state of the art machines, do some of the work in house no need to send off to labs. Aylin and Dr. La-Pham were great with my children! I had never smiled and laughed so much in a dental office.

Trevor M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went in for a general check-up and a deep cleaning.  I was impressed everyone I encountered from the receptionist, to the hygienist, to the dentist.  Unlike the last dentist I visited, this dentist was a thorough as the student dentists were when I used to go to USC dental school. Highly recommended.

Annette Le Blanc (Source: Facebook)


The personal touch the staff gives in customer service. I had a tooth extraction and must admit I was not looking forward to it. But Dr Gonzalez and her assistant were gentle, patient and caring. Upon leaving the office I was given a personal bag with all the necessary things I would need to help me with my healing process. They even supplied an ice pack. This office is one class act in making customers feel appreciated.

Allyson B. from Pico Rivera, CA (Source: Yelp)


10/10 WOULD RECOMMEND! I put off going to the dentist for TOO LONG
Ended up needing 2 root canals to start. The entire staff was so patient in explaining every step of the process. I couldn’t speak any higher of the entire staff and my experience

Alex T. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love my new dentist office! I have had negative experiences with other dental offices, so normally I avoid dental visits. I gave this office a try and could not be happier. Dr. La-pham was amazing and I walked out feeling great. Staff is friendly and honest. Nobody appears to be selling you unnecessary services or products. Pricing was very reasonable for a deep cleaning and a couple of fillings. I experienced reasonable wait time and minimal pain.  Highly recommend

Brandon M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went in today for two fills and a teeth cleaning. I was honestly dreading the time when I had to show up and ironically time flew by and poof I was there lol. As I made that super slow walk to the doors to check in my mood changed immediately because I was greeted by the receptionist with energy and of course smiles. I love how modern the check in process is, honestly the most technological advance dentist I’ve ever been to along with the most open bright cleanest waiting room. After a brief wait it was my time to meet my manifest destiny. As I say in the chair I felt incredibly comfortable because I was welcomed and the conversation was genuine. The numbing agent worked beautifully and after the initial pinch of the dreading needle and half my tongue and lip went numb it was time for the drill. Honestly he moved quickly and efficient so I wouldn’t feel to much of any discomfort. After the full the teeth cleaning followed.Hands down the painless and fun time during the teeth cleaning the young ladie was so calm,cool and relaxed she talked to me the whole time while still being completely detailed oriented. I 100% found my dental home, as long as I have teeth I will always and forever go to this office I’m actually excited for my check up in six months

Kyha V. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t like knowing I have cavities or that I need to brush/flush more. It’s like, a hit to my self-esteem to be told that my hygienes aren’t up to par. That’s why I don’t enjoy going to the dentist. I’ll go once a year for that annual cleaning but that’s it. Was referred to this dentist by a friend and from last week’s experience, I think I just might go to the dentist two times a year now. Made an appointment over the phone with Angela. Came in the next day, completed new patient paperwork and was seen by the dentist within minutes. He was very thorough, explained why my tooth was hurting (exposed tooth gum, not cavities so yay!) and answered all my questions regarding tooth care, at home-whitening kits, etc… At the end of my session, he gave me a reusable bag that contained a toothbrush set and this very pricy whitening kit (i googled it, retails for ~$60). Would I come back? Yes! Those whitening kits make the visit worthwhile! On a serious note, great/friendly staff and very knowledgable dentist. It’s a new office and everything is very modern and well-maintained. There’s even a kid corner with an iPad for them to play with. Snazzy!

M. A. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love! Love! Love Bixby Knolls Modern Dentristy.  And yes!  You can quote me! Historically I am a patient who suffers from high anxiety based on prior treatment. Consequently I was quite negligent in my oral health due to the fact that I would only visit the dentist in emergency situations which is what brought me to Bixby Knolls Modern Dentistry. I have nothing but praise for this establishment. Everyone in this office from the front office to the Dr’s demonstrate nothing but the epitome of professional and customer service. There is a warmth and professionalism that I have never experienced with a dentist. These Dr’s provided professional and painless care in resolving all of my issues. The team has my full trust and confidence. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!

Julius K. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


True to its name, “Modern Dentistry,” it has state of the art equipment, paper-less eco-friendly registration, and friendly staff. I went in with a tooth ache and left in a few hours able to eat again with no pain. Dr. La-Pham isolated the area of pain and didn’t numb my entire face when using the Novocaine; usually a sign of attention to detail and good training. I’m going back for implants and will update on that. UCLA produces yet another skilled Dr. – fix your teeth here!

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


I just left from my cleaning and let me tell you how much i actually loved this place . I have braces on and havent been the best with cleaning so i was nervous. As soon as i walked in i was greeted with a smile and was taken right after i did my paperwork . super super clean in the waiting area . Did i mention i was nervous lol .. I was taken back for xrays and the dental assitant instantly made me feel comfotable she made me feel like i was her friend .we were laughing and joking which made the proccess go by that much faster . next was the actually cleaning. Which i was told i needed to clean better especially having braces and was given some great tips on how to do so.

As i was paying i was given a little goodie bag and even some coupons for dental products… I love this place everyone is so kind and efficent ..would deffinetly recomend to anyone !!!! My teeth look and feel amazing

Craig J. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I could rate this place 10 stars that would still not be enough to say how great they were. They made my wife and I feel comfortable. They were fast, professional, and very personable. I am glad to welcome them into the Bixby Knolls community and I can’t wait for my next dentist appointment! Now, how many people can say that?

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


Dr. La-Pham is great – very friendly and skillful. This is evident in the very modern equipment as well as his abilities. It really put me at ease.  Everyone in the office is friendly. Really felt like I was being treated like a human and not a just a customer. The office is brand new and very clean.

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


Afraid of the Dentist? Is your mouth a HOT MESS?! Looking for non-judgemental people who make you feel comfortable before you even SEE the Dr.?! Well this is the place for YOU! From the moment I walked in and met Angela at the front desk, I knew I was in good hands! She was very kind and understanding when I explained why I hadn’t been to the Dentist in some time! Her kind demeanor made me a little more comfortable before I went back with Aylin (loved the way she spelled the name! Eye-leen), but I digress! She was SO friendly, listened to my fears and didn’t make me feel like the big baby I was! This made me feel even MORE at ease. So by the time my UCLA GRADUATE doctor came in, (sorry Trojan fans, don’t hold this against him cuz he’s amazing!), his calm demeanor put me at ease right away! Dr. La-Pham was pleasant and more importantly, NON-JUDGEMENTAL! He has assembled a TEAM of WONDERFUL, caring and competent staff members and I was COMPLETELY PLEASED with my completed dental work! I’m even going back in September for an extraction and I hope the Oral Surgeon is as fantastic as the rest of the staff! Listen, I’m not a family member posting this so you can believe my review without reservation! And if you took the time to read this entire post, I SALUTE YOU! Now get out there and get your “grill” fixed! Sincerely, A satisfied coward!

Dr. La-Pham and his staff put the care into dental healthcare. Who knew that going to the dentist doesn’t have to be scary? Instead, I felt empowered to own my dental health after leaving this office!
