I wasn’t sure what to expect; this was the first time I have gotten this procedure done. I’m a big baby when it comes to dental treatments. Dr Solooki   was patient and put me at ease. He suggested I listen to music during my root canal and even provided headphones because I forgot mine. He made sure during the procedure that I wasn’t in pain and thoroughly explained everything I needed to know. I would definitely recommend him to anyone in need of a root canal!

Compared to other dental visits.. Dr Solooki visit was straightforward and efficient. This dentistry actually offered X-ray scans without billing or charging me anything. Asked me questions on what I want to get done and gave his honest recommendations too. And he never rushed the consultation. Other dental visits has always been about telling you what you needed done.. After listening to my current dentist (no longer going to be) on what I needed done, I ended up losing more. My general dentist recommended and did fillings on a tooth that looked fine, (only to see the tooth cracked/split in half to the roots within the month), now the tooth has to be extracted and an implant done..

I have 2 months left and I’m done with my invisalign. I thought I would wait to write my review for this office until I was almost done to make sure the little plastic trays actually work and straighten teeth. They work, my teeth are pretty much almost perfect. Not sure what will be happening in the last 2 months but I’m really happy with the look right now. Really happy I picked this office. Everyone is ALWAYS so nice when I come in. One thing to remember is if you’re getting invisalign DON’T LOSE YOUR TRAYS, keep an eye on them when you take them off. I put my trays on my McDonalds tray while I was eating and when I went to throw my food away… boom the trays were in the trash too. Went to the office and they had to order a new set for me, and it took a week to get it from invisalign. My fault for eating McDonald’s I guess. But it did delay for a few days and caused an extra visit. The parking is free too so don’t forget when you’re going to park in the Biltmore hotel valet. Great dental office, If I ever need invisalign again in another life I’m finding Calm Dental again.

Dr. Solooki has a wonderful calm demeanor and excellent skills. I only wish I’d found him sooner. Office staff are friendly and efficient and his assistants are well-educated, methodical and caring. I’ve been to dentists who just want to run up the bill with unnecessary procedures and expensive upgrades, but Dr. Solooki talks me through the pros and cons of different approaches and treatments and then I can make the right decision.

THE STAFF HERE ARE AWESOME!!! so friendly and so helpful,It was my first time going there today and I went with my cousin and our friend and their welcome was so warm and inviting it felt like we knew them for years. They really know how to treat their customers with class and care, not to mention the office is really clean which is very important to me.Thanks guys you guys are the BOMB!!

Afraid of the dentist and you have a toothache.  Go to Calm Dental in Los Angeles.  Dr. Solooki is the kindness dentist you will ever meet.  He is almost painless. The staff is wonderful.  You will enjoy every visit and you’ll want to come back every  six months to get your teeth cleaned.

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

★★★★★

I must say this is the best dental office ever! Starting with the staff… Dominique,  Danny, Gus, Dr. Solooki, Darwin and new added staff member Alejandra.   I got my braces here and completed the whole process, I love the results! They were very accommodating in scheduling my appnts to suit my schedule. The environment there is very unique unlike other dental offices where they don’t even talk to you. Everyone has a very awesome and cool personality. They really take time to ensure you are happy with your treatment and visit and they even take time to get to know you. Dr Solooki is an amazing dentist and he and the team makes you forget that you’re at the dentist office… You have to come to this office to experience it for yourself. I know that I found my denstist office forever.

As with pretty much everyone else, it took a few months of waiting before I got to have my appointment. While I would not say that any dentist visit is worth the wait, this was definitely the best dentist experience I have had in a long time. Office is clean, appointment was on time, they have up to date technology!

I’ve been going to Calm Dental for 2 years now, I’ve switched insurances and it was still effortless to continue care with Dr. Solooki. He’s a kind caring man and I’ve always felt comfortable with his staff and his recommendations.

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

★★★★★

I always enjoy going to this dentist office, the staff is very friendly and always treats me nicely with a smile. I like going to this office because when I walk in I’m greeted and taken care of right away, the dental office is clean and it seems like they stay up to date with all their equipment because everything looks to be brand new. My overall experience is great and I plan to continue going back.

Tiffany Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I had my first appointment  after about a year since leaving my last dentist (Zen Dental). Office staff here is great and helpful, and the hygienist I had was very friendly and professional. Dr. Kafe is a cool guy who clearly cares about patients. He and the hygienist let me know about every tool and all the new technology (cameras, mostly) they were using. After the cleaning, the hygienist loaded me up with a ridiculous amount of freebies: toothpastes, floss, floss threaders, etc. And after I mentioned I had a baby girl at home, he gave me a kids toothbrush for her to play with. Then the receptionist was friendly and I walked out without having to for a fluoride procedure that is not covered by insurance.

At last a well managed, well equiped and well staffed practice where you get explanations in plain English. Did not get the news I wanted to hear but we now have a plan for long term solutions to my dental problems. And they take Care Credit. I’ll be back with more remarks in the near future.

★★★★★

The relaxing and accommodating setting, the friendly and super efficient staff and the amazingly attentive dentist left nothing to worry about on my part. They seem to have somehow gotten rid of as much clutter as they could without losing functionality; Everything looks optimized and as electronic as possible, and they showed a great deal of flexibility in moving my appointments around and making things work with the least amount of frustration. Both the staff and Dr. Khaef (my dentist) were also a lot of fun to chat with. As for the dental work itself, everything was clearly explained to me beforehand and things went very smoothly and painlessly during the procedures. My crowns are perfectly in place and I’ve had no problems whatsoever since. The prices were also counter-intuitively reasonable given the quality of their work!

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

★★★★★

I was used to a very average family dental practice, before I got spoiled at Calm dental. Newest equipment, latest technology and cleanest dental practice I’v visited. Very professional and friendly. The dentist made sure I understood all my options and offered a great “in office discount program” I can no longer go to my old dental office. It would be like eating cup of noodles soup when I can get a tasty filet mignon steak for the same price ! thanks guys. awesome work.

Cecilia B. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Going to the Calm Dental Office was a surprisingly wonderful experience for me.  Like most people I exhibit apprehensive feelings about going to the dentist.  I also have an aversion to pain in general.   I was in a lot of pain when I arrived at Calm Dental but their staff was caring and put me at ease immediately.   Dr. Khaef was a consummate professional with impeccable chairside manners.  I had to have an extraction and I was very scared.   He put me at ease by talking to me literally through the whole procedure.  He explained to me that I was ‘in control’ of the procedure and what to expect next during the surgery.  When I needed him to stop during the procedure he did so without pause and was very patient with me.   I want to take this time to say ‘thank you’ to the Calm Dental staff for a job well done, with special gratitude to Dr. Khaef.   Thank You!

This team is the best. Their office and staff is warm and welcoming. They are transparent and honest, and put their patients needs first.

I’m staying in Los Angeles for the summer. I needed a dentist for a (overdue) cleaning. I heard about Calm Dental from a co-worker and I have to say… GREAT EXPERIENCE. In fact, it made me want to come home and write a review. Not only did I recieve my cleaning in a friendly and professional atmosphere, but my dentist offered me a FREE BLEACH service. These guys are truely about customer satisfaction, rather than trying to squeeze extra pennys out of me. Needless to say, I was very happy with my clean white smile (and my wife didnt complain either 🙂 ). I might consider driving back to LA next time I need a cleaning ! Thanks Dr. Khaef.

Everyone here is extremely nice and help to put you at ease. Very thoughtful and vigilant staff, from those on reception to the dental nurses to the dentists themselves. Plus in the waiting room they have a massage chair, a paraffin wax hand treatment (free!) while you wait, and Netflix to preoccupy you when you are having treatments done. The pricings are not bad either. I am always very impressed. I recommend!

Dr. Salooki has been my dentist for years and I would never want another dentist. He is amazing! He is super detailed and has taken great care of my dental work, and I have a lot of work to get done. I love his expertise and can always trust him with his advice. Recently I left an email after hours regarding a swollen tooth and Dr. Salooki called me back within an hour and had my prescription ready the same night. Amazing and kind dentist. I would highly recommend to any new patient. Trust me, the best dentist you will find out there.

Great staff and absolutely a delight to interact with. I’ve never been to a dentist office that has such a great energy and attitude toward their patients. They really do take care of you and make you feel super important. Recommended!

Friendly staff and great service. I didn’t feel judged for the problems I was having and they took the time to explain everything to me clearly before proceeding, particularly my out-of-pocket costs.

★★★★★

If you don’t like going to the dentist, especially if you put it off for a while, this is the place for you. The high ratings are well deserved. I called the morning of July 3 and was able to get a same-day appointment to fix a painful dental situation. My anxiety lessened with each minute I spent there. The entire staff was pleasant and professional. They clearly understand that some people dread walking in. Nevertheless, I was offered several options for my procedure (molar extraction), and it was taken care of before they closed the office for the holiday. It is worth noting that Dr. Salooki administered the local anesthetic with such precision that I didn’t feel the sagging numbness that often accompanies lidocaine. It was truly a pleasure to have a tooth extracted here. I would trust them to perform any procedure. #FightOn

My husband and I are both patients who are extremely happy with Dr. Solooki and his team. My experiences there have been nothing but pleasant. No wait time, always thorough and always a pleasant visit. Love that they have free valet parking especially since they are downtown and it can definitely be hard to find parking! On my most recent visit- I was extremely nervous- removing 4 wisdom teeth! I was extremely hesitant to use general anesthesia and this is why I chose Dr. Solooki to remove my wisdom teeth since he was going to use local anesthetic. They made me feel extremely comfortable with my decision and reassured me to have no fear. The procedure went AMAZING! I thought I would be in extreme pain for day and my face would look like a chipmunk for days! Fortunately for me, the swelling subsided in a few hours and I have minimal pain (more of a feeling of an uncomfortable feeling in my mouth- I did after all just pull out 4 teeth). Dr. Solooki and his assistant really made sure I was comfortable throughout the entire procedure. I was extremely happy doing this procedure with him.

Today was my first appointment at Calm Dental. I had a deep cleaning with Dr. Poneh and she did such an amazing job. I felt little to no pain during and after my visit. I’m actually looking forward to my next visit on Wednesday. Will recommend to other friends/family.

I found Dr. Solook by word-of-mouth and he is excellent. As a native Californian, I’d normally be hesitant to share information re: a good doctor – because let’s face it – it’s hard to get an appointment! However, I now live in Portland, Oregon, and no longer use Dr. Solook so I’m willing to fill you all in: he’s professional, knowledgeable, friendly, and treats his patients like people, not numbers. Also, he took the time to explain my dental problems- and didn’t assume that I couldn’t understand dental concepts because DR doesn’t precede my name- I appreciated his courtesy and respect….

Jasmine B. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)

I don’t know how much they are getting paid there but it must be at least $70 an hour because everyone is super happy/nice. I walk in and I get a massage (via massage chair) and get offered a beverage for free!(I certainly asked).  Everyone is super happy and they always smile. I seriously thought I was going to get a $10,000 bill or something because everyone was trying to put me in a good mood. I got my freaking hands waxed afterwards?!? Who does that? I’m a guy but you know what they say, “if it’s free then it’s for me.” The working staff is diverse, attractive and down to earth. I went in for a consultation and asked if I could start my treatment for invisalign that same day and they did it! We talked about college and ice-skating to top it off they googled restaurant that is apparently amazing seeing that I was from out of town…I’m talking about printed it out and everything… I want to go back… I might just chip my tooth or something.

Is this place really a dental office? It’s more like a resort. The name says it all. If there was one place that has frightened me since my childhood is paying a trip to the dentist. The staff were incredibly friendly and made me feel like I was at home.

My hats off to Calm dental. This is a great dental practice. I was having trouble with a painful toothache. It wasnt a problem after numbing it very gently and identifying the root cause swiftly. Iv been told a wide range of diagnostics from many different dentists, From TMJ to a rotting tooth, they were all wrong. The Dentists at Calm dental told me where the pain was coming from and took care of it. I now realize the deeds of dentist from Calm Dental. He was talking to me to keep my mind off the pain. He actually instructed me on how to fix my computers screen saver which i was struggling with. Thanks for solving both problems : my toothache and my broken screen saver !

My wife made a mistake and booked my appointment for the wrong date. Just as I was about to loose it, their accomodating staff spoke to the dentist and they were able to squeeze me in with out waiting much.
I was quite surprised how quickly they were able to get in to a dental chair, as busy as the place was. The doctor and assistant were both extremely friendly and funny.. Dentist explained the procedure clearly and reasured me it would be a fast and painless. And Indeed it was..
To top it off, prices were very reasonable.

BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCE BY FAR! I’ve never commented on Yelp before, but its even more rare that I come across a business of professionals that  do their job 100% and beyond. The Staff at Calm Dental go out of their way to work with you and decipher which things are the most necessary to fix . Yes, everyone is in business to make money, but it makes all the difference when the staff love their work environment  and field of interest. Everyone is super friendly, which eliminates any awkwardness what so ever during your visit. Everything is kept very professional. I cannot forget to mention that it was the most soothing dentist/doctors office I’ve ever been in. Very clean with TOP OF THE LINE technology.  I get really antsy at dentist visits but the hygienists are very caring and let you know of everything thats happening while the equally friendly dentists are working in your mouth. I’ve been back a few times now and staff always remembers you and is an even better experience every-time I go.
