Dr. Castillo and everybody in her office are terrific both professionally and personally.  Thanks to them, I am on a path of much better care and preservation of my dental health.  I went to her after five months of pain following some work done by my former dentist who was unable to address the problem.  She took care of the problem with patience, understanding, state of the art technology, personal compassion, and fine tuned skill.  They really took the time necessary to educate me about the better care of my teeth and gums, and she fixed my bite so that I can eat normally once again.  I cannot recommend her and her staff highly enough.  If you go to her office, you will feel truly cared about and you will experience a new higher standard of dental care.  Overall, I had a very pleasant and lovely experience, and my wife has decided to become one of Dr Castillo’s as well.

Dr. Castillo has been our family dentist going on 15 years now. My most recent visit to fill a cavity, she was on time, was beyond thorough and made sure throughout the procedure I knew what to expect and wasn’t in pain. I was out within an hour. Her staff was also pleasant and helpful.

Carmen Castillo is an excellent dentist that put me at ease and properly diagnosed my prior dentists mistakes as I assumed. I had implants put into my mouth and they are way too small. None of my teeth matched on that side and it resulted in throwing off my bite. She is trustworthy and knowledgeable. I recommended her to many people already and my daughter loves her too! Thank you for such excellent service

I have been a patient of Dr Castillo for THREE years and I love the professionalism, the cleanliness, and the passion of dentistry that everyone exhibits, plus it’s walking distance to the beach!!!!!  They always see to it that I am comfortable and they always explain to me what they will do before they do it. I am well pleased with my dental work results. I have always had a beautiful smile, now I have a “CELEBRITY” smile with the replacement of my OLD SILVER fillings with CLEAR fillings. ~I would give six stars if I could

Dr. Castillo and her staff are very professional and helpful in managing my broken tooth. They were thorough in describing procedure that I would be undergoing. I felt very comfortable and relaxed during my procedure with the care that was given. I love the clean, modern look to the clinic and exam rooms. Dental chairs are comfortable which helps you to relax. Plus, the Bose headphones let you listen to music or watch movie on Netflix during the procedure.

I have been seeing Dr. Carmen since 2011 and she is really great. I love the way that she runs her business. Everyone in her office always seems cheerful and friendly.  Having been to many other dentists in my life, I have seen poorly run dental offices and can really appreciate a great experience as a patient.  I have had cavities fixed by Carmen and I also had the Invisiline procedure to fix some crooked teeth.  Carmen did a great job and was very responsive to any questions or problems that I brought up.  I highly recommend Dr. Carmen.

What can I say-  Dr. Castillo has saved a number of my teeth and treats me like family.  I used to be terribly scared of the dentist but Dr. Carmen always takes the time to explain the process and does incredible work.  She is like a hummingbird, gentle but precise.  I’ve been seeing her for many years and would not trust anyone else with my teeth.  I would highly recommend you make an appointment at her office and find out why you don’t need to be scared of the Dentist ever again.

The new office is truly fabulous. To put into perspective how amazing Dr. Castillo is, I fly down to LA from San Jose just to see her. Would not want any other dentist. The relationship I’ve formed with her and Kim the hygienist is second to none. I’m so grateful to be a part of her practice.

Great service. Everybody was super nice and accommodating. I really appreciated how much Dr. Castillo and her hygienists communicated with me. I understood everything they were doing and why. Gorgeous, modern office, too!

Rich A. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Carmen since 2005. I have been impressed since day one when she interviewed me in regards to my previous dental experiences. She and her staff are all professional. I would recommend  Dr. Carmen for your dental needs.

Sarah B. from Lomita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Castillo and her staff are efficient, kind, and do a great job. They are flexible with their appointments and don’t have a long wait period for appointments. The staff is extremely gracious and polite, and Dr.Castillo is extremely professional and knowledgable. I highly recommend her to anyone in need of a great dentist.

I am a family dentist in Los Alamitos, CA and have been seeing Dr. Castillo for about 7 years now. She always makes me feel welcome, and her hygiene department does a great job of cleaning my teeth and helping me maintain my gum health. I would highly recommend Dr. Castillo to anyone who wants to be pampered with the best care around.

Jeff F. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Carmen and staff are the best ever.  She has performed complex dentistry on me, as well as routine maintenance and the results are always amazing.  I compare her approach to that of an artist, because that is the kind of care and effort she puts in every time.  She wants you to feel great, look great and have the very best result each time.  She also figures out a way to get you in to the office if you ever have an issue that occurs outside of your normal appointment.  I wouldn’t put my family of five in the care of any other dentist.  Her office and staff are on the cutting edge with new procedures, as well as making sure you are really comfortable during your visit.  As an added bonus, my family has never had to wait in the lobby for longer than a couple of minutes before the appointment, and we’ve been seeing her for 12 years!  If this isn’t the best place to go for your dentistry….then I don’t know what is.

Always an amazing experience with Dr. Castillo and her staff. I never have to wait too long, there’s netflix to entertain you while you wait AND while the procedure is going on, if you prefer. The professionalism and the friendliness of the staff left such an impression on me, it’s always a pleasure seeing them. I highly recommend!

Karen N. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Carmen has been my dentist for many years. She really cares about your oral health.The staff is very personable and professional. The dental office is very clean and dental equipment is up to date. I love to watch a movie while getting my teeth cleaned and at the end of your treatment you receive a hot towel to clean your face. I have never been to a dental office so knowledgable, professional and you can really feel how much they care about your teeth and you as a person. I’ve been to many dentists and I can easily say that Dr. Carmen is the BEST dentist I’ve ever been to. I would highly recommend Dr. Carmen for your dental needs.

Chris J. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying Dr Carmen Castillo and staff are the very best I’ve used in my 64 years. Although I’m relatively new they treat my like a long standing patient / friend. Dr Castillo fit me in when I was in extreme pain even though I didn’t have an appointment. And this was how it all started. She took the time needed to remedy the situation (didn’t just rush through). She was kind, caring, and a consummate professional. It doesn’t stop there all the staff has the same professionalism. My Hygenist Jennifer is my heart, she makes a procedure that nobody looks forward to almost a joy. Michelle, Dr Castillo’s assistant is such a loving person, she always makes me feel special. Maria, Sarah every staff member I have contact with let’s me know I found a gem when I found this practice. But I’m not done, their cleanliness and sterilization efforts are beyond reproach, and with COVID-19 it’s above and beyond. I cannot give Dr Carmen Castillo and her staff and practice higher than five stars  but they are worth much more than that!! God Bless them all!!

I am very particular about who I see for medical care and I have been a patient of Dr. Castillo since 2006 and have been though not only regular exams and cleanings, but also fillings, and more complex matters like cracked tooth issues and molding of mouth guards.  Local politicians that know the professionals in their area originally recommended Dr. Castillo to me. She is a dentist to go to if you like the old-fashioned personalized dental care as opposed to the impersonal out-of-the-box corner or shopping center dental care.   She takes a personal interest in her patients and starts each day with a meeting with her staff to discuss the patients coming in for the day and possible treatments.  She is also very particular about the people she hires to work with her.  Her staff works as a team and everyone is very pleasant and informative. For me, she even interrupted a long legal holiday weekend and broke away from her family to meet me at her office to relieve a severe tooth pain I encountered on a plane trip.  Other Dentists I called while on the trip out of town refused to come to the office and at most would just call in a prescription.   On trying to decide what to do with a problem tooth, she took time during her lunch hour and end of the day on multiple occasions to talk with me about the options so that I could make a decision. She never makes you feel rushed and is always willing to give you her best opinion. It is amazing to me that people will drive from Los Angeles to San Diego for a vacation, but when it comes to their teeth, a trip to Manhattan Beach to receive superior dental care is too much effort and they will just go to whoever is closest to home or whoever their insurance recommends.  I have moved all over the Los Angeles area from Redondo Beach to Beverly Hills, but I always drive over to Manhattan Beach to see Dr. Castillo. I don’t write many reviews because few deserve and it’s time consuming, but after many visits to see her over 4 years, I can state with confidence that she is one of the better Dentists in the Los Angeles area.  While no one likes going to the dentist, the mood, atmosphere, and location of her office almost makes you look forward to your next appointment. Folks always ask me what the professional fees are for their services:  An oral exam by the dentist is $38.00 and a Prophylaxis (cleaning by the hygienist) is $110 as of March, 2014 and they take most forms of credit/debit cards.

I have been a patient of Dr. Carmen for about 11 years. My children and my husband are also patients of Dr. Carmen. We all find her and her staff to be very hard workers, helpful and informative. Also, we find everyone to be very gentle and we experience no pain! I am very grateful that my children have such a positive experience with their dentist and staff!!!

I don’t normally review anything but restaurants. However, the service, professionalism as well as the excellent explantations from Carmen Castillo were so good that I felt compelled to express my satisfaction and complete support for this office. I highly recommend this group. If you need a dentist or if you just want a better one this is the place to go.

KT. B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Castillo and staff provide superb service at all times. I’ve been coming to this office for about 5 years now. I’ve always been terrified of the dentist office. The sound of  the drill, the smell, just everything scared me. I have had several painful encounters with incompetent uncaring dentists. When I was provided Dr. Castillo name from my aunt, I decided to try it one more time. I’ve never been a person to go to the dentist on a regular basis. I’ve always had great insurance but only saw the dentist when I was in pain. Flash forward… My very first visit with Dr Castillo was very comforting. Dr.   Castillo sat me down in her office and spoke to me empathically and advised me that she would be gentle with me and would explain things to me as she performed any services. I felt comforted. She relaxed my fears and I received services at her office. The staff were great as well. They offered me a blanket to cover my legs, they provided me with a hand paraffin treatment and asked what movie or music would I like to listen to or watch while receiving my services. I was very relaxed and surprised. As Dr. Castillo performed the services, she explained everything that she was doing, which comforted me as well. I’ve been continuing to visit Dr. Castillo for the past years and would not want to see any other dentist. Thank you Dr. Castillo, Sly, Jennifer and other staff for handling this big cry baby with tender loving care. You all Rock!!!!  Btw, Dr. Castillo removed one of my molars due to it cracking, I’m doing well and excited to leave this review to share the gem that I found in Dr. Castillo’s office.

Amazing dentist. It’s not like the visits you had when you were a kid. Dr. Carmen is talented, friendly, gentle, and patient. Her hygienists who clean my teeth regularly are great too! The staff is well organized and nice. The office interior is designed in a cute cape cod style. It feels like home! And I can’t wait to get my teeth cleaned. They have paraffin hand dips and a movie all ready to go while you are getting cleaned. And at the end they have a hot towel and lip balm! YES! Dr. Carmen how did you know that I need that lip balm at the end? So thoughtful! It’s the little things… At Christmas the staff have a Christmas Tree Ornament decorating contest and the patients enter to win a prize by guessing which ornament is the best. It’s so nice to see the staff and the patients involved. It’s definitely a great dental experience to look forward to.
