PATIENT REVIEWS

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

Tara B. from Wilshire Montana, Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

So happy to have found Dr. Nikman. Not only is he great and talented at what he does, but he preserves integrity, a trait that is essential in the dental business. He saved me from a place that had been scamming me back and fourth for months trying to get the most money out of me. Thankfully dr. Nikman was honest and redirected me to the right service that was beneficial for me. In addition, I had a wonderful experience whitening my teeth with the zoom procedure. My teeth are down to the lightest shade possible! I will definitely be going back to Dr. Nikman for any dental work.

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman, is so kind and gentle, efficient, and honest.  I have a cracked tooth that needs to be fixed and my last dentist said my only option was 4 veneers.  Dr. Nikman gave me additional options and said “I would love to charge you for 4 veneers, but I think you have easier, cheaper alternatives.”  The office itself could use some updating, but I will definitely be referring friends and going back myself.  Drawback – they don’t validate parking and the garage gets expensive!.

I’ve been with Dr. Nikman over 20 years. That should be enough testament to tell you how great he and his team are when taking care of patients. He and his staff, Shahla and Suzy, are always nice, attentive, and thoughtful about making me feel comfortable (along with the office’s euphonious intermezzo-ish room music, which is definitely a plus). They are truly skillful and professional and explain to me every detail of my diagnosis and condition, answering any of my questions about my teeth even if some are unduly simple. Further, they always give me several options about what I should do if any tooth needs to be treated. I highly recommend his team’s service to any reluctant have-not tried patients who think of a dentist experience as a “burdensome, painful” one. They will change your biased concept completely. The nicely renovated newly installed wall design with soothing nature landscape images of the elevators in the medical building is quite well-done. Also, the Chicken Caesar Salad at Café Brio on the ground floor is good, too. I always get that in order to have my parking ticket validated on the way out!

★★★★★

This may be the first review I have ever posted about anything. I have been seeing Dr. Nikman for many years. I am one of those people who hates having sharp objects in my mouth anywhere near the vicinity of my gums which, unfortunately, is the heart and soul of dentistry. One of the first things I noticed is that Dr. Nikman has “soft hands,” meaning that even though the sharp objects are in there, he knows how to control them in such a way that it doesn’t hurt. His office has always been friendly and welcoming, and at the same time professional. Also, Dr. Nikman is super patient and candid about explaining what is going on and is never pushy about upselling. I would absolutely recommend this office to anybody looking for an excellent dentist.

Laszlo N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman is the proof that “no pain, no gain” is just not true. Me and my wife have been there with problems that needed a perfectionist, like Dr. Nikman. You can rest assured, that you will not leave the office with a work done less than 100% percent accuracy, and perfect quality. Suzy, the receptionist is always on the top of scheduling, working with your insurance company, and all that with a smile. Shahla is the perfect assistant to Dr. Nikman, looks like she knows everything, and they understand each other with the Dr. sometimes without even saying a word.
I can only recommend Dr. Nikman’s services!

“10 YEARS!  10 FREAKIN’ YEARS!!” (okay, stole that from Jeremy Piven in “Grosse Pointe Blank” and dated myself all at the same time, but that’s another story…) Ten years my wife and I have been seeing Dr. Nikman and do my white teeth shine, or WHAT!  He has been terrific.  Fair, honest, and GOOD (ie:  “PAINLESS”!) Yesterday he cleaned our teeth and found a filling (at my age, no less, and I don’t eat sugar, what gives with that???).  But it was a pain free filling and for that I thank you, Dr. Nikman.  Always a pleasure to see you! My wife and I will always be indebted. Kerry & Joan. Please allow this post to be read by anyone searching for a professional, PAINLESS dentist who is just a great guy!! (He also happens to know every rock song ever sung – go ahead, test him!!).  I think you will very happy – my wife and I are.

I was referred to Dr. Nikman’s office through a friend. Every Dentist that I had gone to previously, had said that I need traditional braces in order to correct my bite and that Invisalign was not an option for me. I am a performer and I can’t be on stage with braces. Dr. Nikman was able to work with Invisalign to correct my bite with “invisible braces” when no one else was able to. He is also very reasonably priced, especially for being located in Brentwood. I continue to have my regular cleanings and check ups at his office and I am very happy with his work.

Beth S. from La Habra, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman is wonderful! He is so kind and gentle. I’ve been a customer for 15 years (wow!), and now my husband goes to this office, too. We have insurance through our employer, and Dr. Nikman’s office takes care of everything. I’m a big chicken when it comes to doctors, so you can believe me, you’ll be very pleased with your experience here. No pain. No worry. Just nice people who care about you. The best you can get.

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

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman and his staff are the best!! He somehow cured my life long fear of dentists. I informed him it had been a while since I had been seen by a dentist and was afraid due to a possible cavity. He not only offered a stuffed animal and ear buds, he waited until I was comfortable and numb before performing my filling. I was shocked when he was finished and couldn’t believe how gentle was. I felt like he was was extra cautious and really took his time. I am so grateful to have found him.

Federico F. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman is the best, period. I always been terrified just with the idea of getting a dentist appointment. He did an awesome cleaning job, completely painless. He also did a whitening procedure (Zoom) and I see a terrific change every time I smile or take a picture. Because of the bleaching I had to do a veneer on my front teeth because I broke it when I was a kid and there was a noticeable difference on my old crown but now you can’t even tell the difference. I was scared about the anesthesia, needles and that stuff but Dr. Nikman is a professional. I barely felt the needle or pain. He was very understanding and patient. Honestly I don’t see myself going to another dentist, I am very happy to have found him.

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

★★★★★

Just to start off, I am TERRIFIED of dentists. I had a very bad experienced with a root canal a few years ago that turned me off to the idea that any dentist knew how to deal with my apprehension of making an appointment, and how to handle my sensitivity towards such an invasive procedure. The mere thought of visiting one drives me to tears, and I’m not even dramatizing that. A few weeks ago the nerve on one of my molars was exposed and very irritated and the pain was unbearable. I decided that it was time, unfortunately, to book an emergency visit to the dentist. My mother goes to Dr. Nikman, and she assured me that he’s the best dentist that she’s ever had (she has the same fears of dentistry that I have). I sit in the chair with tears in my eyes and my anxiety was over the roof. Cue Dr. Nikman, who walked in and gently guided me through what he needed to do for the tooth. It was definitely a root canal, and instead of doing everything in one fell swoop, he explained that he’d perform the procedure in a few appointments. First of all, I have NEVER had a dentist be so transparent, informative and reassuring as he has been. My previous root canal took over 6 hours to perform and the Dentist doing the procedure was fast and careless, without explaining anything to me. Nikman, however, was very open in showing the X-Rays of my tooth and going into detail about what needed to be done, which I was incredibly thankful for. He was slow and gentle and asked me if I needed more anesthetic frequently. If I had any questions he was prepared to answer them in full detail, and if I needed a break he was there to assure it was completely fine. Now it’s definitely going to take a few more visits for me to get over my fear of Dentists, but I’m very happy that I’ve finally found someone who cares about my teeth and my wellbeing. Instead of trying to squeeze me of all the money I have to have a fancy bill at the end of the day, he’s there to make sure that the patient is comfortable and is getting the best service available. His staff is also incredibly friendly and knowledgeable, very kind to all who walk in. Billing is easy and there’s no fuss. Very clean and welcoming. I definitely recommend Dr. Nikman to all who have had bad experiences with Dentists in the past. He’s a godsend!

Jonathan R. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman has been my dentist for about two years now. He is really great. All the work he has done (in my case, deep teeth cleaning and tooth fillings) is flawless. Besides that Dr. Nikman himself and his staff are very welcoming. There is a great atmosphere in his practice. Also, unlike other dentists, I never had the feeling that Dr. Nikman wants to sell me something I don’t need or overcharge me for anything. And I know what I am talking about. When I needed a simple tooth filling, I went to several dentists and got quotes. First, for every upfront exam I had to pay 80 to 100 Dollars, only to get the quote. Then, two of those dentist told me I cannot have a filling, I need a complete new veneer. FYI, a filling is about $200 and a veneer about $1500 (a cheap one). Dr. Nikman said right away it would be a pity to put a veneer on my otherwise totally healthy tooth. He gave me a filling and surprise, two years later, still no problem with that filling. I can only highly recommend Dr. Nikman!

Me and my wife have been seeing Dr. Nikman for some years now. We couldn’t believe that a visit to a dentist can actually be a pleasant experience. Dr. Nikman, and his staff are the best. He makes you feel comfortable, you immediately feel the trust, and the caring environment. Suzy courteously works with us on promptly arrange our schedules, and makes adjustment if required. Shahla (assistant) and Dr. Nikman work as team like a precision swiss watch. I live relatively close to the office now, but even if I have to move, I won’t hesitate to travel to see him if needed. When you visit Dr. Nikman, you feel like a family member.

Like many others, I have tried quite a few dentists before going to Dr. Nikman.  It has been a number of years since my first visit to his office.  Since then I have referred many of friends and family members to his practice.  He has proven time after time that he genuinely cares for his patients and is a great dentist.  Just by going to his office twice a year for cleaning and check up, he has been able to maintain my problematic teeth and gum for years now without needing any dental procedures.  He is the best dentist for me and my family – period.

Mark A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman is not only a great dentist, but he is a very nice man………I have found him to be very honest, fair, and he has great ideas………When I moved to LA several years ago, I was looking for a dentist and everywhere I went, I felt like I was being “SOLD”  dental work that I did not need……not the case in this office….I am so thankful to have found Dr. Nikman and I wanted to give him a “shout out” and say to anyone out there on the west side looking for a really good dentist that will tell you the truth, check him out….I dont normally write these reviews, so I hope that you found this helpful.

I had recently moved to Los Angeles from NYC and needed a good dentist. Dr. Nikman was referred to me through a friend after I chipped by front tooth. When I called his office, his staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and scheduled my appointment immediately. On the day of my appointment, I found his office easy to get to with available onsite parking. I was a bit nervous, never having chipped a tooth before, but Dr. Nikman was able to go over the procedure with me beforehand and set me at great ease. He was kind, cordial, respectful, and extremely qualified. His work was painless and the tooth looks great. He is an excellent dentist and I recommended him to all my friends.

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

★★★★★

Dr. Nikman did a great job fixing my tooth recently. I was always scared to death to go to dentists, and always tried to avoiding dentists until situation gets really tough. Same thing happened this time, I came to Dr. Nikman with huge hole in the tooth and I couldn’t chew on that side and it seemed terrible. So he installed me crown, which required about 1.5 hours of drilling and I can say that was the best dentist experience I ever had. After the first few minutes of being in the chair I wasn’t scared at all, which never happened to me in the past. So long story short, I will highly recommend Dr. Nikman to everyone who will ask me about good dentist and will become his regular client in the future.

I am new to Los Angeles and was looking for a Dentist that would be gentle and honest. I had heard from a number of people that Dr. Nikman’s dental office was a comfortable environment and that Dr. Nikman did great work. And they were right! Nobody enjoys going to the dentist. But I must say, Dr. Nikman’s staff and he himself, made my experience easy and comfortable. He didn’t try to “sell” me on a bunch of things that I don’t need. I am happy with the work I had done and the price that I paid. And I got a great promo coupon for referring a friend!

I’m extremely picky about my dentist– Dr. Nikman is the second dentist I tried after moving to Los Angeles, and the last one I’ll need to find. The office is easy to find, the office assistants are friendly and helpful. Dr. Nikman personally does the cleaning, as well as any dental work. He is patient and wonderful. He never asks a complicated question and then fills your mouth with dental tools! His work is gentle, sensitive to your needs, and fast. I’ve recommended him to several friends, and they’ve all been impressed. He is also extremely accommodating– my husband has had work plans change several times, and his office has always worked hard to work around his schedule. He’s even available one Saturday every month– when the building parking is significantly less expensive!

This is my first yelp review, ever. I created an account just so I could post a review of Dr. Nikman. I’m not surprised that all of his reviews are 5 stars. I’ve had this crazy irrational fear of dentists since I was a child. It was so bad, that even in my late 20’s, I had prolonged going to the dentist for almost 3 years. It wasn’t until I chipped a back molar last weekend, that I knew that I needed to suck it up and go. I was given a list of Dentists by my insurance and proceeded to Google several of them and their locations and reviews. Dr. Nikman was the only one who (1.) is 2 blocks from my office & (2.) had rave reviews on Yelp and other Medical rating sites. I couldn’t find one negative review. That was when I knew that I had found my dentist. I was a nervous wreck when I came in and was breaking out in hives. Dr. Nikman and his team were absolutely amazing and so kind and gentle. He walked me through each step and was upfront and honest. During the 1.5 hr procedure, he kept checking to see if I was okay and would give me little breaks in order to collect myself. I didn’t even realize I was clutching that cow stuffed animal like there was no tomorrow until it was over (side note: holding that stuffed animal really does help). I felt no pain whatsoever during the procedure. They are even great about payment plans. Since this was an emergency and I have a DMO, I knew I was going to have a high copayment. They let me split my bill in half and pay the remaining half in 2 weeks, which was greatly appreciated. I have to return to complete my procedure in a few weeks, but after my last appointment, I will definitely going in confident and knowing that I’m in the best hands. So unbelievably grateful that I found Dr. Nikman and his team. I will continue to be a patient for as long as possible.

Another successful treatment with my dentist!  My family and I have been patients here for many years.  We absolutely love our dentist and his staff. They are always friendly and inviting.  Dr. Nikman really knows his stuff.  I’ve never had to be concerned about his integrity or ability to properly diagnose and treat my family.   He’s never been “about the money” with me, but always honest when giving me my treatment options.  I wouldn’t trust my teeth, my family’s  teeth, or my wallet to any other dentist. We’re in good hands–like All State!

Let me begin by saying I HATE DENTISTS! A deep seated fear rooted (or root-canaled) in my youth when, because we couldn’t afford to go to an actual dentist, I went to a dental school for my dental work (where I often got less than A students). But the trauma was in no way eased when as an adult I went to real dentists who caused me real pain! I’m genetically predisposed to problematic teeth since childhood, and to a spinal cord condition in adulthood for which I’ve needed take myriad medications all of which give me severe dry mouth, only deepening my dental dilemmas. So.. my experiences with dentists have been many –all bad- until NADER NICKMAN. He is THE BEST, and one of the best reasons to have relocated to Los Angeles. Although from the start my visits to Dr. Nickman were pain free, for the first couple years I still gripped the sides of the seat, my shoulders scrunched to my neck; Finally my subconscious was convinced of what I already knew: that there would be no pain because Dr. Nickman is gentle as he is precise, as caring as he is talented (my beautiful smile is a testament to his artistry- veneers in front, crowns in back, countless filled cavities and a couple root canals in between). Dr. Nickman is a gem- a truly good man, who is also a truly GREAT DENTIST to whom I am eternally grateful.

I was referred to Dr. Nikman by a coworker about 15 years ago and he’s been my Dentist ever since. He and his staff always do a great job and his bedside manner is mellow, which I totally appreciate. I have never felt pressured to undergo any procedure and he always explains why a procedure is needed or why it might be better to wait. If you need a Dentist on the Westside, Dr. Nikman is a fantastic choice.

Kathleen T. from Sacramento, CA (Source: Yelp)

Before seeing Dr. Nikman going to the Dentist was unpleasant for many reasons. Even though I had health insurance my former Dentist in Santa Monica didn’t seem to know how to use any of my benefits towards my visits and I always felt I was paying more money than I needed to. Also, about 10 years ago I had many problems with sensitive teeth and gum issues, issues with old fillings that resulted in route canals. So seeing the dentist was painful and expensive. I have been with Dr. Nikman for more than 5 years now and my feelings about going to the dentist have completely changed. First, Dr. Nikman’s office associates know what to do in terms of billing. I trust them to handle things without me having to get involved and make a million phone calls to the insurance co.  For my gum issues Dr. Nikman suggested I try trays with a perio-gel solution and that with my soni care has been life changing. Now when I go to the dentist its short and without pain and I usually ask if we are done already. “Seriously, we’re done!?” I have seen Dr. Nikman for regular cleanings and preventative care and never anything close to cosmetic. Lately I have notice that a small filling I had on my front tooth from 10+ years ago was discoloring. During my visit today Dr. Nikman gave me options for how to treat it. In the end I opted to drill out the original filling and have it refilled. While he was working on it I noticed his skill and ease in fixing it and was relieved. Its my front top tooth after all. (Quite Frankly if it was anyone else I would have been nervous.) When he was done it looked amazing!!! I left the office with a spring in my step and my smile more beautiful than before. I work in Real Estate on the Westside so having a confident smile is key. Dr. Nikman has helped me to maintain my beautiful smile and not to dread going to the dentist. Dr. Nikman is professional, skilled and fair, but even more important he is a very nice and nurturing person. If you have had any chronic dental issues give him a try. Hopefully he can help you get on the right path as he did me.

Dr. Nikman is a great dentist.  He has been my dentist for about 5 years and has always given me conservative but complete care. If there are options, he lets me know and gives me the pros and cons for them.  He recommends the best treatment but doesn’t up-sell unnecessary things.  His fees are reasonable, especially for Brentwood.  His staff is very friendly and helpful.  I like Tatian, up front.  His back office assistant is nice as well.  They always take good care of me and help with my insurance.  I never can figure that out! Dr. Nikman is just a sweet guy who really cares for his patients and does great dentistry.  He is gentle and explains everything he is doing and why.  I’ve had some bad experiences with dentists in the past who have recommended things, only to find that I didn’t need them.  He knows his stuff and it’s really nice to know that I can trust him. I have moved all over since I began going to his office and believe me, it is worth the drive, not that I go often  Do yourself and your teeth a favor and visit his office.

I had a truly amazing experience working with Dr. Nikman. He did a great job fixing my front bottom tooth by doing a  root canal and internal whitening procedures, as a result I have my tooth back with no need to put an expensive crown on it, and he removed a stain that has ben a problem for me for a long time. Root canal procedure was done fast and with NO pain at all, even numbing was done professionally and fast. Dr. Nickman is very gentle, careful and detailed oriented, always ready to answer your questions. The staff are friendly professionals. I receive a reminder on my phone and email every time I have an appointment, and I never have to wait before sit in a chair. Also, Dr. Nikman is flexible and allows me to pick time and date that will actually work for my schedule. I really appreciate this! I’m very happy working with Dr. Nikman’s team so far, and I would and will recommend his services to all my friends and family members in future.

I moved to Los Angeles about two years ago and needed to find a new dentist. A friend of mine told me about Dr. Nikman, whom I’ve visited twice now.The first time, I went in for a check-up, but ended up having 3 cavities  fixed at a very reasonable rate. I felt very comfortable in his practice, and he has a really lovely staff. His assistant Patty is adorable. She is so funny and distracts me from any dentist fear that might arise, haha. I went back last week to consult Dr. Nikman about getting some Invisalign braces – a friend of mine just got them, and she paid like USD 10,000 for one year. He was very informative and fortunately, the price range he quoted me was much much lower, which goes in hand with the information I found on the Invisalign website. So, I will go back in a few weeks to get my Invisalign started, and I am so excited!

Dr. Nikman has been my family dentist for years. I feel so lucky to have such a careful, smart, and caring dentist who I can trust. He’s always clear about all my options in getting a treatment, even those that may reduce the total that I will spend. I have had lots of fillings done by him and, even years later, I have had no problems with them. He constructed whitening trays for me, and I continue to get compliments on my beautiful white teeth :). He has even helped maintain my retainers to keep my teeth straight years after getting braces with a different doctor. As for his prices — he’s always been more than fair, whether or not I’ve had insurance! So, whether you need just a check up or are having serious dental grossness, go see him already!! Tip: for those of us who can’t make time during the work week, Dr. Nikman is kind enough to make appointments on saturdays once per month! Street parking is available in the residential neighborhood adjacent to his office building.

I hadn’t been to a dentist in years, because I was scared. A friend of mine finally persuaded me to try her dentist, because, she assured me, “I’m a big scaredy cat too.” So I sucked it up and went. My first time in Dr. Nikman’s office, I found myself sitting in the chair, tense, and a very kind looking man with a gentle voice says, “here, would you like to hold this?” and offers me a stuffed animal. What am I? A kid? No. This childish manipulation won’t work on me. But I take it to be polite. At some point, I realized I was gripping the thing for dear life (the exam hadn’t actually started yet). So I try to relax, and OK, the stuffed bear, or whatever it was, does make me feel better. We chat about my mutual friend, and I get my exam done. That’s what I remember from my first dental visit with Dr. Nikman, circa 2004. Note what was missing: -pain-tears-unpleasantness. Am I saying there was zero discomfort? No. As I said, I hadn’t been to a dentist in years – I’m sure I had issues. And Dr. Nikman is a dentist, not a magician. But he is EXTREMELY gentle, and cares about how you are doing when you’re sitting in his chair. He checks in with you, warns you when something unpleasant is about to happen, and makes it as quick as possible. Did I mention I didn’t have dental insurance? He’s sensitive to that. His staff is also great. Nice, friendly, efficient people. I think they reflect well on him. There are plenty of good dentists out there, I’m sure. But Dr. Nikman is also a wonderful person. Dr. Nikman is still my dentist, and I’m proud to say I don’t require the services of the stuffed bear anymore. But I think it’s still there if you need it.

I have been a patient here in this office for a few months now and I must say I am impressed! The Care ive received being the fearful one that I am was amazing. The Back office Assistant is awesome and friendly and made me feel very safe and welcome.

EXCELLENT….EXCELLENT…EXCELLENT DENTIST AND STAFF. I have had the best detal experiences at this office than any other dentist in my 55yrs of visiting the dentist. Dr. Nikman is gentle, kind, caring, and most of all he does great quality work. I had Invisalign completed and full mouth veeners placed and I am so pleased with my smile now; I can’t stop smiling. The front office staff and assistant were patient, kind and supportive with me because I am a dental coward. As a new patient coming from a referral from a co-worker, I also received a $50 credit toward any service. I am going to tell all my friends to come to my dentist. They are all great. THANK HEAVEN!.
