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

Graeme M. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to dred / fear dentist visits. For the past 6 years I have been coming to this practice, and the combination of the high levels of expertise, the enormous competence, and the warm, supportive nature of everyone who works there have transformed my whole perception and experience of dental treatments to one of positivity and the elimination of fear. I cannot speak too highly of the people who work at this practice. They are all caring and patient orientated. I feel so fortunate to have this amazing team taking care of my dental health.

Jerry R. from Sylmar, Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was seeing Carl Farless, D.D.S. for a few years, very good, and he retired and Arthur Jordan D.D.S. took over and has been doing a fantastic job of taking care of my dental needs since. I trust him and his decisions to do what is necessary and in my best interest. The same staff are also in my trust, caring, gentle and excellent. I am very pleased with all of their work. Jerry

Amy C. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


The last dentist I had was just okay. I decided to give it another shot and out of a few candidates I had, Dr. Farless was one of the more fairly priced dentists for regular cleanings (that’s all I’m interested in… for now, hopefully). I was kind of nervous (I generally think less expensive means worse), but I was pleasantly surprised. The staff was friendly, I got seated right away, and the cleaning was comfortable. As a side bonus, now I know of a good dentist to go to in case of an emergency.

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


I’m nervous of ANY procedure! – Most Dental Practices make it obvious they don’t want to deal with patients like me! NOT true of THIS place! THEY are an awesome, compassionate,impressive group of HIGHLY PROFESSIONAL STAFF. They go ‘ABOVE & BEYOND’ for patients. ALL OF THEM! My daughter has been going there for years & recommends it as THE best – So Do I ! They inspire COMPLETE CONFIDENCE IN THEIR EXPERTISE! They earn TEN out of 5 stars!

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


Dr Farless has retired since my last review, so felt it was time to refresh my last review! Though I was sad to see Dr Farless leave, he left the office in wonderful hands. Dr Minas, Rose, Angela, Michelle they all make sure patients feel comfortable and at ease. I’ve hated the dentist my whole life, until I found these guys. I no longer put off my appts, and look forward to maintaining the health of my teeth. This office is a gem of a find. It’s no thrills, no nonsense just solid people who care about their patients, and are great at what they do. Quite rare these days.

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


I’ve been a patient for almost 3 years. I’ve been treated by Dr. Minas, Dr. Jordan and Dr. Gregorian and trust all of them explicitly with my oral care. I had a botched root canal fixed, crown replaced, filling repaired, Invisalign and numerous cleanings. Angela is my hygienist. I feel really lucky because a good dental office is incredibly hard to find. EVERYONE is professional, friendly and knowledgeable. I plan to stay with them until I move out of LA or croak. They are that good!! P.S. I have Delta Dental PPO.

Terie H. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Jordan, Dr. Minas and their entire staff! They are also very kind and very understanding. Their work is impeccable! Extra perks are that they have one late day, great for after work appointments and they are open on Saturdays! I highly recommend them! They are awesome!

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


Let’s be honest: no one likes going to the dentist. NO ONE. Including yours truly. But one of the effed up realities of life? The longer you put off going to the dentist, the greater your chances of having BIG problems. Like that toothache you thought was just a cavity? Oh hell NO. That mother effer is gonna get all root canal on your ass. I learned the hard way a long time ago, don’t procrastinate when it comes to your teeth. You never win. NEVER. Having learned my lesson, I go for my regular cleanings. Get my x-rays every couple years. All the stuff you’re supposed to do to take care of your teeth. So last year when I started feeling like something was up with my tooth? No biggie. I’ve had the cleanings and the xrays. It’s probably nothing. Yeah. Not so much. I went to Dr. Farless to get it checked out and eff me it had passed from ‘cavity’ to ‘root canal’. As we all know, root canals are hateful and horrible and straight up medieval torture. And hella expensive. So I put it off. And put it off. Until I woke up one day and my mouth was on fire. No one to blame but myself. I called to make an appointment with their specialist. However, he only comes in every other Saturday. So I’d have to ride it out for another month. That next month, waiting for my appointment, my life was a living hell. I beg of you, no matter what you do? Do NOT put off dental visits, check ups, or whatever work they tell you needs to be done. Man up and take care of business. Ignoring it won’t make it go away. Satan will laugh at you, and your tooth will feel like it’s being blasted with the fires of a 1000 suns. Now here comes the good news: Dr. Gregorian, the root canal specialist. First of all, he’s pretty foxy. Like ‘Bad Guy in an Action Movie’ kind of foxy. Although I did see a big gold wedding band on his finger, so I think he’s taken. Don’t go barging in there trying to hit on this guy. Just let him work on you and admire his hotness quietly to yourself. Here’s the other good news: he’s really good. No joke. I was a huge nervous wreck when I walked in there. My stomach was in knots. I felt like I was gonna throw up and sweating like a whore in church. I took a little Xanax to calm my nerves. That helped a bit, but not much. I told him before he started that I was super nervous. He was so sweet about it. He knows most people feel this way about root canals. He waited patiently while I got my iTunes on and tried to relax. The only bad part? He had to give me one last numbing shot directly in the tooth before he started. Guess my system had a reaction to it, because out of nowhere my heart started racing. I wanted to bolt straight up out of the chair and run the hell out of there. I freaked out and signaled to him that I needed to get up. He helped me out of the chair and I walked it off. After about 5 minutes, I calmed down and was fine. Once he got started, it went pretty smoothly. And it really didn’t take that long. Maybe an hour, hour and a half? Overall, I was super impressed by him. Would definitely recommend him to anyone. Especially to the scared-y cats out there like me.

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


We can all agree that getting dental work done sucks. But I have to say — this was actually a good experience! Had a root canal done on a tooth that was in bad bad shape. I was super comfortable – felt no pain. It was quick and in weird way – kinda relaxing. Once my insurance renews — I’m going back get everything else done! Can’t thank Dr. Jordan and Dr. G enough. Highly recommend!!!

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


I’ve been a patient at this office for over ten years and I always feel very taken care of. There’s a great energy amongst the dental team and I feel I’m getting excellent care. I have a complicated case, where Dr. Jordan had to work together with my periodontist and orthodontist for years. He was collaborative and patient throughout the process and made it as painless as possible for me. I surely reccommend Dr. Jordan. And of course we miss Dr. Farless and thank him for all the years we were in his excellent care.

Leo J. from Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Jordan for over a decade now, but was my first time visiting this office.  I was really impressed with the office to say the least.  Staff was super friendly yet very professional.  I was taken in at the exact time my appointment was scheduled for.  I noticed how detailed oriented this office is from the beginning of my session with them.  Each teeth is measured individually and records are kept to see any ongoing trends with your teeth and gum in order to get a head start on preventive processes if need be.  My overall experince with my visit was amazing and I can’t wait to return again for my check up in 6 months.

Leonard R. G. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family have been patients with Dr. Farless and Dr. Jordan for 26 years now.  They are a part of the family.  My boys have grown to men and they are still their dentists. I highly recommend them.  And there’s always good music playing, too!

Dalita J. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I use Yelp all the time but I’ve never posted a review, been wanting to but usually after few hours life catches on and you forget! So tonight kids are sleeping I have few min of relaxing time by myself so I looked back and reflected on the week that past by, thought to myself what was the most positive thing I did ? One answer came to mind after few years of not visiting the dentist got a recommendation through a friend to make an appointment with Dr Jordan for a cleaning and an exam. Obviously very nervous about what I was gonna find out. The Staff was amazing helpful made me feel like I’ve known them for years! Angela was my hygienist she was amazing my teeth feel super clean I almost didn’t want to eat anything to get them dirty. Dr Jordan did my exam his the nicest dentist you can imagine! Mellow informative extremely caring and knowledgeable. Bottom line my first review! Highly recommend my family are next so happy with my experience! So happy that there are still dental offices like this where you feel like you are part of a family and you are not just another number! You guys have e a patient for life thank you !

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


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Farless for almost 20 years. I can’t imagine going to any other dentist-he knows what he’s doing! His staff is caring and thorough, his prices are very reasonable and everyone in his office is always in a good mood. I’ve sent many friends to Dr. Farless, and they have all become loyal patients. Dr. Farless ROCKS!

Lita M. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Jordan for years! This place is amazing! The front office staff is so friendly and everything is so clean. It’s not a surprise that a visit to the dentist is not the most pleasant experience but Dr. Jordan is so gentle that your anxiety goes away. I came once with the worst tooth ache and left with the biggest smile on face, literally!

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


So here you are, looking at for a good dentist in the 91601 Noho area. I left my Beverly Hills dentist and started coming here. Dr. Carl is the nicest and most personable guy ever. There’s a few things that are hard to find in life: A good mechanic you trust, a good hair stylist, and a good dentist. Well I found the good dentist, but I’m still looking for a mechanic. Anyway, seriously, try this place. They don’t price gouge, they are friendly and fun. They’re flexible and work with you. If you need a root canal, the specialist comes in on Saturdays, Dr. G will hook you up. Dr. Carl really especially likes (stolen from a 4square checkin) if you eat Oreo cookies directly before your appointment and don’t clean your mouth. Go here, stop looking for dentists, these guys are my spot until I move away.

Carmen G. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


This guy is a miracle worker! I can’t believe I have waited this long to write this review. I was in LA this summer for a much needed vacation when I had an unfortunate dental emergency. I perused yelp for the best dentist in the area and made an appointment. I told them it was an emergency and they took me in right away. I don’t have insurance, but it was still pretty cheap compared to what I pay here in Chicago. Everyone in the office was really nice and I felt comfortable in a dental office for the first time in my life. Every time I visit the dentist, I consider letting my teeth fall out. I wish I could teleport this guy to the midwest. Do yourselves a favor and switch doctors, you won’t regret it.

Chadej J. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Farless and his staff are by far the best in the business! I’ve been utilizing their services for quite a few years now and have never had a bad experience. Everyone is super nice and very professional. I want to also mention Angel who is one of the dental hygienist on staff. After having my teeth cleaned by him, I would have to think twice before letting anyone else clean my teeth. He’s thorough and gets the job done without killing your gums. Rose who is a dental assistant is AMAZING. She’s welcoming and super nice as well. My only problem is they are out-of-network for Metlife/Metropolitan, so the out-of-pocket expenses are starting to bruise my pocket. That being said I may have to seek services elsewhere with the exception of cleaning. LOL

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


If you’re postponing getting a cleaning or you have any little concern on one of your teeth and havent been in for the last 6 months (since Covid) … Please don’t wait another day. Make an appointment to see Dr. Jordan without delay! I called on friday and I was given the very next day, Saturday appointment. I’m so glad I went. With all of us homeschooling, puting my kids before my own care, I kept postponing getting a checkup and my tooth started growing black decay. Dr. Jordon took care of it that day. Painless, and as usual with exceptional care. My two teeth are white, bright, and healthy again. I feel soooo much better. The entire staff are completely following safe practices with medical grade face shields, masks etc. I promise its absolutely safe to get treatment done in this office. I cant say enough how great all the office staff is. Go get a cleaning here asap!

Ti R. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been patients for over 25 years. First with Dr. Farless and then, Dr. Jordan. We do not live close now but we still make the drive because of how great these doctors are, not to mention the rest of the staff. Very professional, friendly and they care about you as a patient. They do what is best for you as a patient. No pain, ever. We are always very comfortable no matter what we are having done. Dr. Jordan explains everything clearly as he goes along. Love this practice. Have recommended them many times.

Claudia C. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


A friend of mine recommended I give this place a shot after I was continuously dissatisfied with the dentists I would visit. SO glad I did. A dental office isn’t always the most anticipated of places to go, let’s be honest – but I will say that I’ve never felt more at ease with a dentist and my only regret is not finding them sooner! Super professional staff and all-around good experience.

Zoe C. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOOOOVE Dr Farless!!!! I can’t tell enough people about him, and how comfortable and at ease he makes me feel when I need to go in. My biggest fear was going into a dental office…I DO NOT MIND at all now. Dr Farless has changed my prospective…he’s very friendly, caring, and is very direct when it comes to informing me of my dental care…no pressure and never any unneeded services! I recently had some cosmetic and whiting done there, and i gotta say….my teeth look awesome!!! Customer service is not dead! Thank you Dr Farless and crew, you guys are great!

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


Dr Jordan & dr Minas are both excellent dentist, nice bed side manner, very knowledgeable, very competent and detailed Customer service is excellent, I am always impressed by my visits, that are used to be difficult to schedule, they make it easy 🙂 Thank you to staff & Michelle 🙂

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


Albeit,  we really miss Carl,   But these  two dentists,  Jordan & Minas  are very good  at their craft & very cool.   Rose the 5 STAR Dental Assistant  is still there  and  she is a  delight to behold.   The hygienist who cleaned  my  teeth is  Cari  who is  also  outstanding, friendly and  Fun!   Has  the best time  going to the dentist  believe it or not.

Debbie B. from La Crescenta-Montrose, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where do I start? I love, love, love this dental office for so many reasons. First of all the administration team is phenomenal.. Everyone is so professional, kind and caring.. They all really want to make sure you are taken care of from the moment you walk in their door.. Now for the Team of Dentists…. wow. They are above and beyond educationally trained and do an exceptional job on whatever dental treatment is needed.. Today I had a crown started and I was taken care of by Dr. Jordan. He is so kind and gentle. I didn’t even feel the novacane at all… I’m going back on Monday to have my teeth whitened and I can’t wait… oh, they did front veneers on my husband and WOW, he is a new man.. We both LOVE them. I can’t say enough about this team.. I give them a thousand stars..

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


I’ve been coming for a couple of years now, and the office is still top notch, friendly, professional, and DAMN talented folk. Dr. Jordan did an incredible job repairing the work of a previous dentist, and he fixed a chipped tooth. He was in and out in under 45 minutes and I was remarkably pain free for my afternoon shift (Both a good and a bad thing, as I was prepared to ‘call out sick’ if misery was in my mouth — instead I keep my work shift, which makes the boss and wallet happy.) Michelle was a great help in setting up a follow up, and everyone was all smiles. This is the ‘Cheers Bar’ of the dental community, where everyone knows your name. It’s remarkable when I casually mention something happening in life and  6 months later, they ask me how ‘fill in the blank’ went; how do they maintain that recall with so many patients. The other thing to note is how well run the office is – in all the times visiting, I never have to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. I remain a totally satisfied client.

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


Look no further! I highly recommend given that I’ve been coming to this dentist office since 2005! You will enjoy the environment and the people that work in the office. They are truly great people with smiles on their faces all the time. They all enjoy what they do and their work proves it! They work as a strong team and are the nicest people ever! Strong customer service with great work! Come here for excellent service and your teeth to be well taking care of! You will refer people to come here too!

Kr B. from Panorama City, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff and service here is great! Very professional. I would recommend this place if you want to receive an extraordinary treatment. Quality always! Angela is a wonderful hygienist so as my dentist Dr. Jordan

Ivy V. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient here for 5-6 years and have been extremely happy. I looked at a lot of local dentist reviews when I first moved to the area and it seems like there are a lot of sketchy dentists around here, so I was relieved to find an honest, caring group of professionals here. Everyone in the office is pleasant, welcoming and will make you comfortable if you are a nervous person at the dentist. They tell you what you need and they are not pushy or judgmental and they tell you what the priorities are so you can plan for care in the future. Thank Dr Jordan and team for your kind and professional service!

Micah R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was experiencing major pain and swelling stemming from a poor root canal that another dentist performed over a year ago. In an emergency Carl saw me and took care of the problem. I am majorly indebted.

Max Randy M. from San Fernando Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


OK…So I woke up with what I considered a “Dental Emergency”, with a Large Bridge coming detached from my Mouth…after an EXTREMELY frustrating morning, ATTEMPTING to find a sympathetic Dental office in the area, to No Avail…(Big Surprise there…)…I found THIS office on YELP. I called @ 7:30am!, and a VERY Pleasant Office Manager actually answered the phone!! (I had to confirm, that she wasn’t the “service”, I was relieved AND surprised). …Michelle made me an appt. for 9:30, I came in @ 9, did my paperwork and was IMMED. seen by the relaxing & VERY Professional Doc.Jordan and his Pretty, Professional Asst..(I realllly wish I got her name!) 🙂 Anyway..I have MAJOR & EXTREME dental “Phobias”…and was shaking when I got in the chair…The Doc put me at ease Immediately! Also, since I didnt have the funds, Michelle was VERY VERY understanding AND workable with me and my Girl…making it easy to arrange payment from afar…The doc fixed me up right away, and was VERY Meticulous & Gentle….Yay!!! I Found a Dentist (& office staff) that actually CARES!! …. & even though I freak out with any/all dental care….I WILL go back for the care I really Do need!! HUGE THANK YOU!!! …Goes out to Michelle, Doc. Jordan and the Dental Asst. PRO.. (SORRY for not getting your name)..Also, VERY reasonable rates,(thus far), ..for the non-insured…10 STARS!!!!

Bob G. from Palm Springs, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been coming here for years..great people here. I’m probably the only person in the world who doesn’t mind going to the dentist or getting cleanings. Over the years I’ve had 7 veneers, numerous fillings, cleanings, crowns, … no complaints. And I’m sure in the years to come, I’ll be having more mouth work.

Hilary M. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dental practice. They are caring, diligent and thorough while being affordable. Too many Hollywood practices try to up sell you on cosmetic dentistry but I have never experienced that here .  Both Farless and Jordan are exceptional. I highly recommend them!!!!

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


My husband and I have experienced so many a frustrating and uncomfortable dental visits BUT when we found Dr. Farless’ dental office by word of mouth, it’s like Eureka!  There is really light at the end of the tunnel!  We just loved Dr. Farless, Dr. Jordan, Angel, Rowena, Jennifer, Michelle, Angela and Rose!  Great staff, great service, great office atmosphere (does not feel like the typical cold, dental office at all!) I think we are in for the long haul!

Caroline C. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Farless deserves more recognition than a “5 star” rating scale to describe how amazing he is. I’ve been his patient for at least 17 years. Prior to being under his care and the incredible care of his hygienists, my husband and I had been to countless dentists. I can remember back when we moved from Studio City (where Dr Farless office is located near) and moved to the San Fernando Valley 12 years ago. The day I attempted to get a cleaning closer to home at unnamed office. I figured, just this once ill just go for a cleaning nearby to home…I can’t begin to say what “a can of worms” I found myself in. (But it actually didn’t surprise me) By the time I left this “anonymous named Dr” I had a list of urgent treatments I needed from crowns that needed immediate replacements because of supposed “infection”, and of course two root canals were on the list. I thought that’s peculiar… I went back to Dr Farless and discussed this other Dr’s “recommendations”. Not surprisingly..Dr Farless in his usual calm and professional way assured me by examining me and my x rays that none of the items suggested were at all necessary, none not one! The reason I am Yelping Dr. Farless today is because I recently (been another 11 years since i researched finding a dentist ..only to help a friend who has HMO dentistry covered) My adoration for Dr. Farless has risen to the surface again. I cant express enough how much I appreciate ..and there are absolutely no words to express how blessed my family is to have and know such a trustworthy Dentist. Dr. Farless is honest, patient, gentle, humble (and the BEST novocaine shot giver in the dental world 🙂 There are still dishonest dentists out there. I had to walk my friend and I, out of two dentist offices that accepted her HMO dental insurance. Both offices made excuses that they couldn’t give her a cleaning. That she needed a “deep cleaning” which of course is not covered by insurance. She too received a list of emergency root canals needed before they would even allow her a cleaning. The first office did her X-rays and would not clean her teeth unless she agreed to pay for a deep cleaning. Let me explain to you what an HMO deep cleaning is, its what Dr Farless would give you anyway, that’s already included in your insurance, but Dr Farless’ “deep cleaning” is called “yearly cleaning” 🙂 and it’s done by every single one of his amazing hygienists! Jennifer, Angela, & Angel. I ust had a cleaning today by Angel, he did an excellent job! How long does your hygienist take to clean your teeth? Angel spent at least an hour scraping. This “yearly cleaning” would make your mouth feel like it just won NASCAR and you’re Jeff Gordon (I had to use a race-car reference in Dr Farless’ honor 🙂 So this long overdue compliment is here on yelp..the office staff gets a “I’m Dr. Farless biggest fan” earful on a yearly basis, so now here it is, in-print! We are so grateful to have a dentist we can trust and appreciate each of the incredible staff that are each so caring. Thank you Rose for also taking such good care of us all these years. Dr. Farless you definitely know how much we love and respect you. I can’t stop complimenting you and thanking you every time i see you or bragging about you in conversations that include dentists or teeth. I’m pretty sure everyone that knows someone in my family and extended family coworkers, and friends know who Dr. Farless is … I just wish there was something more we could do to show our appreciation. If there was an apple award for Dentists you would get the prize. God bless you Dr Farless, and your entire staff. Thank you!
