Dr. Sarafian is an amazing dentist who truly cares about his patients and makes an effort to serve their needs. He and his staff are very professional, and provide great service at very reasonable prices. This office truly is a family, I would not consider going anywhere else!

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


I have known Dr. Sarafian for about 20 years. Before I met him, I was going to another dentist who told me that I had no choice but to have my tooth pulled. After hearing about Dr. Sarafian from my friend, I decided to get a second opinion. Dr. Sarafian treated my tooth and 20 years later I still have not experienced any problems. Dr. sarafian is a kind and conscientious professional who truly cares about his patients. I would definitely refer him to all my friends and family members. Thanks to Dr. Sarafian and his friendly staff for their great service.

My kids & I have been clients of Dr. Sarafian’s for 4 years. He has always impressed me with his kindness & bright smile. He takes time to speak to my kids and make them feel at ease as well as thoroughly explaining all dental needs to us.  Even though we moved out of the area , we still keep Dr. Sarafian as our dentist & highly recommend him to anyone in need.

Dr. Sarafian has been my dentist for over 20 years and my daughters for 16 years now. If your looking for one of the best dentists around and for someone who cares about you and your family, this is who you would want to be your dentist. Want to talk about experience… he is pain free. I’ve had many others in my life and I drive out of my way to come back every time for my daughters and my dental needs. All I can ever say is great things about this dental office.

Olivia B. from San Fernando, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Sarafian is my all time favorite dentist! I’ve been going to him for over a decade and have not had 1 bad experience with him. When I got a new job I lost my Medical and chose HMO not realizing he wasn’t in my dental plan I suffered a whole year with another dental office which by the way was horrible and I mean HORRIBLE!!!  They gave me a silver cavity “by mistake” when I asked for porcelain. As soon as my policy was over I payed the extra money and switched to PPO so I could go back with him, yes he’s that good! Friendly staff, clean office, great location with lots of parking & awesome hours including Saturdays which is super convenient. Why would anybody want to go else where???

Dr. Norman Sarafian and staff are the best in the whole San Fernando Valley. Highly recommend. They are very helpful, attentive to your needs, very nice and always want you to feel comfortable with any procedure. They are very professional when it comes to explaining what treatment your receiving before and after. Been going to them for 15 years. We love them.

This is hands down the best dentist I have ever been to. Staff is extremely friendly, nice, and professional. The dentist explains everything to you throughly, he is very gentle when doing the procedures. I recommend everyone here, you will not be disappointed. I’ve never been so happy to of found an amazing dentist.

Grisel G. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great doctor very professional and friendly. Took my kids for a cleaning and the doctor and his staff were very gentle and caring. The doctor took the time to answer all my questions. We all had a great experience. They even gave my kids some little toys and a toothbrush

Best Dentist I’ve ever been to. He is far more interested for your Teeth’s Health, rather than your Wallet. Won’t do un-needed procedures if not absolutely necessary.

Darling G. from Sylmar, Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to give five stars to this dentist office in Sylmar. The doctor did an amazing job!!! He was very gentle. Their employees are the best! They are so friendly I felt like I was talking or seeing a friend that I’ve known for many years. The office is always clean and their office environment makes you feel at home. Honestly, if you live in the Valley and you are looking for a dentist with insurance or medical. You should try this place! You will have no regrets!

Kathy M. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family has seen Dr. Sarafian for over 20 years for all dental needs. Dr. Sarafian has always been reasonable, kind, patient, and thorough with his work. Unlike some other dentists, he does not “make up” reasons to perform unnecessary dental work and is very trustworthy. Saturday appointments is a big plus too. I also like the way he asks, “Are you OK?” in the middle of the work to make sure the patient is comfortable. I highly recommend Dr. Sarafian to any person, child or adult, for all dental needs.

Frank K. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve been coming to Brite Smile for few years now. Dr. Sarafian is a dentist who is professional with his work, sensitive to the needs of his patients, and accommodating to each of our needs. My wife fusses over everything and he meets her needs other than giving her the okay to have unlimited amounts of Hershey Almond bars. He explains every procedure and doesn’t proceed until his patient is ready. We like that about him. He doesn’t rush through the appointment. He seems to understand that to some or to the majority of us a visit to the dentist brings angst. If you are looking for a dentist, you have visited the review that will tell you that…..Dr. Sarafian is the one you should visit for your dental needs…he really does care.

Caring and knows dentistry. Very gentle with kids. Highly highly recommend him.

Linda L. from Van Nuys, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love Brite Smile ! I am not a big fan of going to the dentist but with Dr Sarafian and his staff it’s always a pleasant experience I have been a patient for over 15 years. I will continue to refer family and friends to Brite Smile

Dr. Sarafian and the team are excellent. They provide you with the needed information and provide excellent service. I am glad I chose this location and I look forward to future visits.

The best dentist hands down, dr Sarafian is the so nice to his patients. Above all that he’s very keen to helping you out and works with your schedule and his Staff of nurses who help him aren’t those serious monotone people who just stare at you they actually care about you and will remember if you become apart of their dentistry. He is very helpful when it comes to figuring out Insurance’s and methods of payment and he is very gentle when working with his patients teeth. Just had deep cleaning and was almost completely painless so highly recommend him. Works good with children and all ages have been coming to him for years.

Nina P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s so hard to find a dentist that’s honest , gentle and does amazing work . Thank you to Dr. Sarafian and his team for always looking out for my best interest and an doing amazing job on my teeth . If you’re looking for a dentist don’t hesitate to call Dr. Sarafian . He is the best !!!!!!

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


Dr. Sarafian is the best it gets! I have been coming to this dentist since I was a little girl and when I had the decision to switch dentists I decided to stick with him because of how comfortable I am there. Ive always hated the dentist, like most people, but Dr. Sarafian is very skilled at making you feel relaxed and comfortable as he tells you everything he’s doing before he does it and is easy to talk to. He remembers me and my family by name and always asks how my family is and asks me about school and everything which makes me feel like he actually cares. I definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for a dentist or wants to switch over to someone who will make them feel comfortable and actually cares. Its easy to get appointments and I never wait longer than 3 minutes to be brought into the room to be seen.

Michelle S. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been taking my grandson to Brite Smile since he was 2 he’s now 7. The Dr  and his staff make him feel so at ease. Dr Sarafian is great with him I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else and would recommend him to anyone that needs a dentist

For me, I feel very fortunate to have had Dr Sarafian perform my extensive dental work from dental implant repair/surgery, extractions, bridge work, bone implant, a very timely procedure. He explains each procedure clearly and confidently. He and his staff offer a very warm and inviting environment…Trust and go for your dental needs, you won’t regret it. John R.

I am 27 years old and Dr. Sarafian has been my dentist for my entire life. Throughout all of my appointments and check-ups with him, both as a child and as an adult, I’ve experienced nothing but great work and professionalism. Highly recommended.

John J. from Sylmar, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The doctor and staff are so friendly and made me feel welcome in their practice.   They are up front with any cost prior to starting any work.  Though they aren’t totally computerized,  they still provide outstanding care.  They are very good with children as well.

Virginia P. from Sun Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love there customer serve the doctor or the wife will call you if your calling after hours they will make sure they will accommodate you for your appointment at anytime, if they are available . Recommending doctor Sarafian very GOOD doctor. His very thoughtful and worries about his patients!!!

Rosanna Perez (Source: Google)


I’ve been coming here for years for adults and children. Honestly he’s great with both. He takes the time to care and really make the children comfortable. This is not the kind of place where they make the parents sit outside and the kids have to be inside alone. You can stay with your child the whole time and he talks your child through the whole process. It’s the best dentist ive found in this area.

Marisol Graham (Source: Google)


I was in need of a dentist for my kids, Dr was great with my kids very patient, Staff was very friendly great customer service and ver clean. My kids didn’t feel a thing. I’m so glad I found them WILL definitely be back.

Casto F. from Sylmar, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Norman Sarafian is an astonishing dentist. He’s extremely understanding and explanatory when it comes to your dental hygiene and dental health. The staff is very friendly and kind. They are all very welcoming and trustworthy. Highly recommended

Lourdes B. from Lake View Terrace, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been coming to Brite Smile for the past 6 years or so. Dr. Sarafian and his staff have always been very helpful whenever we visit his clinic. I take my housemate who is blind and she is a pain at times as she wants to know everything going on around her and is rude about it. She makes blunt comments and at times make demands when dealing with others. Dr. Sarafian has met these challenges with an upbeat, professional, caring, and willing attitude. We changed dentists because we found our past dentists to be unsympathetic, non-caring, and ignorant to the needs of those with disabilities. Dr. Sarafian is just a kind and good person who happens to be a dentist. He knows the quirks of my housemate and works with her to alleviate any discomfort or misunderstandings of her treatment. We thank him every time we visit because he is making the dreadful (just because he is a good dentist doesn’t mean we love to have dental work done) experience as less dreadful as possible. We recommend Dr. Sarafian and his clinic wholeheartedly and know that you will get a compassionate person sitting next to you ready to make your dental needs met.

the dentist was good as always and he is always gentle when he does deep cleaning and other things to your teeth glad I found him

Best dentist in business, we’ve been with them for years and they treat you good, they do what they have to do and everything comes out perfect just how you wanted it, 1-10 rate it a 10

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


I was referred to bring my daughter to Dr. Sarafian by family members. My daughter loves coming here!! I like that even after a root canal, teeth extractions, and multiple fillings my daughter says she felt no pain and loves coming back to dentist. Interestly enough, my daughter prefers coming to dentist over her primary care Dr. any day! I liked Dr. Sarafian so much that I decided to switch over to Brite Smile Family Dentistry as well! I have now been coming here for years myself & I love coming here! Dr. Sarafian is very gentle and takes time to take care of every patient even when his office is busy. Aside from Dr Sarafian being so great, his staff is super friendly, and they are so flexible with scheduling as I have a hectic work schedule. They work around my schedule so I can be seen at the same appointment as my daughter. I would definitely recommend both children & adults, and everyone else in the family to visit Dr. Sarafian’s office to see how great he is for yourselves! 🙂
