From the get go, parking was easy. This is a big plus for me since that can be a pain in the ass in much of LA. The paperwork was a breeze and the X-rays were the most comprehensive I’ve ever had. Despite the place being busy, everything happened fairly quickly and the staff who I dealt with were real cool–vibes were on point. Dr. Karnakova did a great job and I felt super refreshed after the cleaning. I do have to floss more apparently!

Today (06/25/2018) was the first time I tried this new place and I am extremely satisfied with their care. The staff is welcoming, friendly, and professional.  And I believe everything is by appointment, which is worth it as I was there no longer than 40 minutes. Thank You Cal Dental Group.

Everyone is so friendly and especially patient with me while I’m being a wimp about my sensitive teeth. I’ve been in for 4 cleanings in the last 2 years and have zero complaints! Parking is easy which is a huge Plus

Anastasia K. from Century City, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Karnakova is my primary dentist and every time I leave her office I am feeling more confident than ever. The Dental Office itself is very welcoming towards the patients and there is beautiful decor out in the waiting room. The office is ALWAYS in top-top shape and leaves me excited for my next appointment. Dr. Karnakova is the sweetest women you’ll ever meet !! VERY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!

Megan M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time going and what a great experience! I have gone to the same dentist for the past 27 years, but since moving to LA I had to find a new dentist. The team was super friendly…Perfect hours so I was in and out in plenty of time to get to work on time…Very efficient cleaning of my teeth! Plaque free and now will be going here every 6 months! Thank you all 🙂

Demetrius H. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Glad to have found this gem of a office! From the beginning I felt welcomed and everyone at the office was pleasant. The entire staff engaged with the patients, and made my experience wonderful. I am normally a person who does not do well at the dentist, but Dr. Karnakova  made my procedure as comfortable as possible. I will definitely be coming back to Dr. Karnakova for my future dental needs

Chloe B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was one of those delinquent patients that hadn’t been to a dentist for 4 years. And then I broke a tooth and needed a dentist fast. I discovered Cal Dental on Yelp. Everyone at Cal Dental made me feel relaxed (especially Angie V. at the front desk). And my Dental problems were quickly solved. Not to mention I got a great deal on a cleaning, x-ray, and exam! Thank you Cal Dental 🙂

I was really nervous about my wisdom teeth extraction, but everyone was friendly, and my experience was overall pretty painless ! I was surprised how quickly it ended !

Katherine A. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Just got a root canal and the procedure was painless ! I was nervous but everybody was so nice and accommodating that it made me feel less nervous . i knew I was in great hands . The staff was amazing and so was the dentist . Overall I had a great experience .  I will definitely come again and refer this place to family and friends !

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


I’ve been coming here since I was a little kid and love everything about them. If I were ever scared they always found a way to make me feel better. Nice people, great job, and always have a smile on theirs faces letting me know that I’m always welcome. Thank you for your time and effort for giving me the best smile

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


Came in for a crown and had a great experience! First off the receptionists were very patient and helpful  with all of my questions and when it came down to the procedure Dr.Karnakova couldn’t have been more thorough. Very sweet and knowledgeable woman. She really took her time and made me very comfortable. I definitely found my new dentist, highly recommend Dr.Karnakova!

Vlad K. from Queen Anne, Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


It took literally less than a minute to extract my wisdom tooth and it was painless! The staff is nice, knowledgable and humorous. If you are looking for a reliable dentist this is the place to be. You won’t regret it!

Carmen S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Honestly, hands down the best dental place I’ve gone to. Ever! As a person who has PTSD from passed dental offices / dental surgeries… finding the right dentist is extremely important for me.. and isn’t always the easiest!! I found Cal Dental Group with my insurance, and then i looked them up on yelp and google. With raving reviews, I had to try them out. I’m always skeptical, but everyone said they were amazing! I hadn’t had a cleaning in a couple years (I’ve moved several times – out of state – and then Covid hit), and was having some issues with my gums, and they were able to get me in right away with no issues. Everyone from the front desk, to the dental assistants, to the dentists… are extremely kind and generous. They really do make sure you’re happy no matter what the circumstance is. I’ve had a really hard time since I moved to LA back in October and then with Covid hitting a few months later, and I’m moving into another apartment, they did everything they could to help me out. I can’t rave enough about this business. If you’re looking for a dentist, look no more!!! This is definitely the place to go to

Edward M. from Malibu, CA (Source: Yelp)


Last week I was able to get urgent appointment for a crown that was bothering me. Dr Olga Karnakova took a great care of me and I have to tell you she is a most caring doctor I ever met. My visit was absolutely painless and staff was very friendly which makes me very comfortable and relax. Highly recommend Cal Dental to anyone who is looking for great dentist

Adrian T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist ever. there is nothing more to say, except you are going to the best of the best and someone that prides himself in the practice of dentistry. any scary thing you thought about dentist or horrible things, you can throw all that out the door. if you have emergency teeth issues or anything related to the teeth, this is the ONLY place you should come. no pain, quick, affordable, professional, clean. 5 words to sum up this dentist

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


Amazing dental team located on Crenshaw Blvd, about half a block north of Olympic Blvd in Los Angeles. I love the Cal Dental Group!!! When I did not understand something, the professionals at Cal Dental would help me understand the information. The Cal Dental team were all very kind and supportive. I received phone calls prior and even post services. They just wanted to make sure I was doing ok or if I had any questions. Amazing right? Members of their team also speak Spanish and Korean 🙂 Cal Dental did not try to push or sell me services I did not need. They were kind and upfront about my situation and offered various options. They all worked very well together. I recommend their team and services to you! They can help you. Call now and tell them about your situation. Do not wait another day

Desi K. from Englewood, CO (Source: Yelp)


I hadn’t been to the dentist in about 3 years so I was nervous what to expect. Even just stepping into the building though, I was able to shake the nerves a little bit. The facility is very clean and comfortable. The receptionist was incredibly friendly. The cleaning was what I was most anxious about. It went quickly though– my hygienist definitely put me at ease and was super friendly. It didn’t hurt nearly as bad as I thought it would.  And they had a TV, so I wasn’t stuck staring at a brick wall for 30 minutes. The doctor was great too,  very friendly and I will definitely be back. Plus, the yelp deal is great!

Going to Dentist has never been my favorite trip since becoming an adult. I got on yelp and searched Dentist in K-Town & came across this one about a month ago (yes it took me that long to schedule an appointment as stated prev. Dental trips not my favorite). I called the office about a week 1/2 ago and gave my insurance information and got a call back within an hour and was scheduled an appointment. Both individual whom I spoke with on the phone were really nice and courteous. Scheduling my appointment was fast and easy. Upon arriving I was greeted by friendly faces and staff that demonstrated they like what they do I was called in got some X-rays and was assigned a room. The office is clean, the staff is friendly and the DR. Is super nice, friendly, funny and takes care of you. If you’ve been searching for a good, caring, welcoming and honest dental group this is definitely the place. I am happy to say that I have definitely found my dentist!!

I started to go to Cal Dental Group when Dr. Kim was the dentist. I had wonderful experience with him and his team. All the visits were very pleasant and efficient. The most recent time I went before the covid lock down , I found out the office had a new dentist. I am happy to say the new team was equally wonderful and caring. Dr. Olga was very thorough and took her time to do my exam. Ray was super kind and funny when he was taking my X-rays. The front office staff was always friendly and helpful. Every time I went, I barely had to wait as they always started the appointments on time. The office was clean and neat. If you are looking for a dentist, try this office!

This place is fantastic! Everything looks like new, clean, and fresh. The staff is professional and friendly, they got excellent technology, and on top of that, the prices are great! This place is a must!!

Hiba C. from Pomona, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you’re terrified of the dentist this is the place for you. THE NICEST STAFF I’VE EVER MET IN MY LIFE. First of all the office is structured beautifully, you’ll get to meet everyone. They’re very patient and will never rush you, they give you options and recommendations but will never push you to do anything you don’t want. My worst part of the dentist is usually the anesthesia and the gigantic syringe, needless to say, I’ve been here twice already and I did not feel a thing. Never experienced that before. It’s magic. I had all 4 of my wisdom teeth taken out, one impacted, the surgery went smoothly and I was 100% after the 3rd-4th day. They put me under local anesthesia which was perfect, it took an hour for all 4 to be taken out. Today I went back for my post surgery checkup and some fillings. Everything was great, even though everyone was running around and super busy they made sure I was well taken care of. I hate to see Saturday appointments go away in March but hopefully I’ll have everything I need to be done before then. Honestly, last time I went to the dentist was in 2011 these people never judged me for it. They know the struggle!!! As long as I’m in LA this clinic is my go to. If I had a 6th star I would give it to this team

I just want to say that the staff here are amazing , I haven’t personally been here but I was looking for an office who could get my sister an appointment since she was having pain and I spoke with lissete over the phone . She was so nice and understanding she referred me to another office who would be able to see my sister on such short notice. Any receptionist could’ve just said no we can’t see her , figure it out , on a Saturday. But she helped me by referring us to another office and who would work our financial status . Amazing staff

Nicole D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been his patients for years and I recommend him to everyone. My kids refuse to see anyone else. Great office location, parking and staff is amazingly on top of things to make you feel at home. We love it here.

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


Dr. Olga is the best! I was kind of nervous coming in since it’s under new management but my experience went very smooth and easy. I had an amazing experience with the staff and especially Dr. Olga who’s super sweet and nice! Overall my experience was a 10/10 I highly recommend this practice

Charlie B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


HERO’S* A person(s) admired for achievements and noble qualities* One who shows great courage. I had a old filling that fell out and was in pain.

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


Cal Dental Group is *Under New Management*Wow, the staff here is exceptional! Their customer service is beyond anything I’ve experienced. I had a lengthy conversation with their staff and found that the business is now under new management. This was clear to see since they provided genuine care for their patients. Dr. Olga is also wonderful and my appointment went so smooth! She is professional and thorough. Plus, I felt comfortable the whole way through and am extremely happy with her work. I’m so glad I found this office .. they’ve gained a loyal client!

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


Went in for a chipped tooth. Waited for about ten  minutes. Friendly receptionists, friendly dental assistant, friendly, efficient and professional doctor. Great experience overall for a dentist visit

Erika H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dentist! The office is modern and clean with ample parking. The doctor and his staff are patient and professional. They worked with my insurance and explained everything in detail. My anxiety going in was very high and they really took very good care of me. I highly recommend Cal Dental

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


Everyone at Cal Dental Group under the new management is truly amazing. You won’t find another group who actually cares about you as a patient like they do, and they do everything they can to find the best solutions for you and your dental health. Dr. Olga and her team are a badass crew of professionals!!

Sahar A. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I very seldom write reviews but this is deserving. Dr. Karnakova has made going to the dentist something to look forward to. She has always made me feel comfortable and secure, as well as having great communication with me. After seeing many different dentists I can say that Dr. Karnakova and her team are the best I have seen and I will continue to go there and would highly recommend them to anyone

Andrea S. from Berkeley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist I’ve been to so far in my life! Not lying. My tooth suddenly began to hurt, and so a friend recommended me to this dentist office. Turns out I needed a root canal! Contrary to what I believed, my root canal operation was… painless. Sure, I jolted 2 times, but honestly, this was the best dental experience I’ve had. Getting braces hurt a hundred times more than getting a root canal! The staff is very friendly as well 🙂 Treats you as a patient should be treated: with respect and care

Anthony P. from Compton, CA (Source: Yelp)


The environment from the workers is great. They treat you like family and are very friendly. I get excited for my next visit cause I know I’m in good care with them. Been with them for many years and they have been great with my siblings and myself. We never had any problems with them. They are the best 🙂

Ansel M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everything in this office is remarkable; doctors, staff, friendliness, and cleanliness Dr. Karnakova and her staff are amazing!!! I highly recommend!!!!!!! Covid safe, the office had a complete makeover with super air scrubbers filtration and space age air purifiers. Come check it out. This place was always super clean but you can eat off the floor after the makeover. These previous reviews don’t make any sense. Ive been coming here for months even after the ownership switched. Dr. Karnakova and the staff are an amazing new addition


Dr. Olga Karnakova received her dental training at the prestigious Moscow Stomatological Institute and received her dental degree in 1991. From 1991-1996 Dr. Karnakova was one of the first dentists in Moscow to provide mercury-free composite fillings in her thriving private dental practice.
