Bliss J. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


BLISS gets her CROWN!!!  Dr. Follette is the greatest dentist ON THE PLANET!!!  I love her!!!  There is nothing to be enraged about when visiting her office.  It is spotless!  Her staff Athena at the front desk and her assistant (forgot her name!) are wonderful!  Rhona is the best technician ever!  And she is gentle and part therapist.  And Dr, Follette, like any queen, takes the crown.  I am a terrified patient, and she crowned my tooth like a true savior.  I am so grateful and no longer in pain.  Thank you Dr. Follette for giving my tooth and health back!  I LOVE YOU!!  From Bliss Jones…writer at www.enragedwoman(dot)com

I searched for the right dentist after moving to Santa Monica eight years ago and would say I hit the jackpot when I found Dr. Follette. Everyone in the office is friendly, punctual, and most importantly… professionally skilled. You don’t want to mess around when it comes to your teeth/mouth. Dr. Follette takes care of you because she cares about you.

Dr. Follette and her staff are great! I have been a patient for some years but recently needed dental work done because I cracked a tooth. She made the repair painfree. She is dedicated, caring and gentle. I know that I’m in skilled hands when I’m in her office. I highly recommend her for any dental needs!

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


Dr. Follette and her staff of highly specialized personnel are the best in the west and the best in Santa Monica. I wouldn’t even consider going anywhere else and I am so happy that I am getting the best quality dental care that I could possibly get.

O.M.G! Years and years and years and years of searching for a Dentist to feel absolutely comfortable with. A dentist of which you didn’t tell yourself prior to the appointment “Let’s see how much this one wants to stiff me for” My son and husband found them, my husband raved about them. I was dubious of course, but what an absolutely delightful experience. This is a great practice with great staff, knowledgeable, skilled, and considerate. You can tell a lot from first impression, smiling and approachable receptionist/assistant, I think her name is Joy, my hygenist is a star, (I’m embarrassed I’ve forgotten her name, I’m terrible with names, is Rosa?) I have this gummy lump growing, which I had removed before I came to the states in 1991, it slowly returned and has been a littler bothersome over the years. I’ve been to numerous dentists, since arriving here, not a single one has ever made mention of my lump beyond, “hmm, how long have you had that?”. Dr. Follette, came and looked and photographed and xrayed and poked and scrutinized. How’s that for concern. So happy my husband found them. Thank you Dr. Follette DDS and team!

Dr Follette has been my and my family’s dentist since I moved to California years ago. She highly skilled, if not artistic. Her staff is always friendly and accomodating. I have my choice of dentists and would never think of switching. Mark J Kelly, M.D.

K S. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t praise Dr. Follette and her staff enough! Not only have I received excellent care over the years, Dr. Follette saw my elderly mother (who is not her patient) in an emergency situation and took care of her as if she were her own mother. After examining her, Dr. Follette immediately connected us to outstanding professionals in oral imaging and surgery and my mom is now back home in good health. Dr. Follette coordinated the oral surgeon close to where my mother lives in Orange County (talk about connections!), and we were so impressed with his credentials and how we were able to get in and out of surgery all within 24 hours. Thank you Dr. Follette, from the bottom of my heart

Dr. follette is one of the best dentists in LA and she is the real deal — knows her stuff and is VERy compassionate LOVE this dentist. She is kind and compassionate and REALLY CARES about her patients, MORE than making tons of $$$$. So refreshing

I was the first appointment of the day and had to provide insurance info. Still started right on time. Dentist is very hands on and does a lot of the work herself. She explains what she is doing and why, and is focused on patient comfort. Also, she focuses a lot on the gums and not just the teeth. Great provider.

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


If you value your time and money, definitely go to Dr. Follette! I cannot praise this office enough! Making an appointment is easy and the wait time when you come in is just a few minutes. I hate to admit that I hadn’t been to a dentist in years, but the technician was so thorough and knowledgeable that my nerves settled immediately. Dr. Follette was awesome! Some dentists are so aggressive, seemingly choosing pricey procedures to correct small problems, but Dr. Follette is honest and really cares about her patients. And the BEST part: she uses new technology to fill cavities where you don’t need numbing! Not only was she able to fill my two cavities in the same appointment as my cleaning, I didn’t have to wait several hours to get the feeling back in my mouth (and you can eat right away.)

Doug M. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Follette was recommended to me almost ten years ago, by a crazy Aussie nurse.  It was a good call. Carol and her long-serving staff are the most warm and caring people I have ever encountered in dentistry.  They are thorough, professional, and offer treatment options to match with needs and desires of the client.  This is a true home-town family dentist.   I am proud and happy to give them my highest recommendation! ;~D

Great vibes, low wait time and clean teeth. Like any good dental office they do offer some ancillary/extra services which you can politely decline. They didn’t pressure sell or anything which is appreciated. Thank you!

Danny W. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is my first time writing on yelp and after all of my work that Dr. Follette performed on my teeth I couldnt help but not give her 5 stars. Dr.Follette has taken care of my entire family for years and she always makes sure you understand what she is doing and why she is doing it so you dont ask yourself questions while she is performing her procedures in the chair. She referred me to an oral surgeon who did a wonderful job for my wisdom teeth, then once everything was healed i came back to get my teeth bonded. I was in by 9 out by 12:30 with a perfectly natural looking new smile. Dr.Follette will go above and beyond to help you by any means necessary and her team especially Rosa is the best you feel like you have known them forever. Do yourself and favor and next time you need dental work done or need to refer someone to a dentist they will be more than happy to have Dr.Follette’s care. Thanks again Doc for the amazing work on my new teeth. 🙂

Such a great place, yes it is a tiny office but who cares when the staff and the dentist Dr Follette is amazing. I felt well taken care of and everything was explained.  I’m so happy to have found this place and i fully recommend going here.

Dr. Follette is wonderful! She took good care of me during my office visit. She was personable and very tentative to the teeth cleaning. Her staff is also very friendly and efficient. The office is cozy, so you feel comfortable right away. Even hearing her work with other patients, she is just great!

Fabulously friendly and professionally superior staff. They always perform at the highest levels and are the best priced dental providers in town who never sell you crowns/root canals/fillings or suggest misc work unless it’s absolutely necessary

Randi H. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Follette for two decades and have never had a bad experience (which I can’t say about other dentists I’ve had in the past). I now live overseas, but every two years when I visit California I always schedule an appointment with her. She is definitely world class!

Kelsey J. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down, the best, more honest dentist in LA area. Won’t tell you that you need extras done just to take your money like some other dentists I’ve been to. She’s realistic and very trust worthy. I had bonds done to my teeth which were more affordable than other dentists who quoted me in the area. They came out gorgeous and have lasted now 6 years without any issues. I highly recommend her especially since honest good dentists are hard to come by these days….

Karl S. (Source: Zocdoc)


I was a couple of minutes late–but they didn’t give me any problems. Saw me right away and still had me completed before the next patient arrived. She performed the cleaning herself, which I’m not used to–but appreciated the extra dedication. No complaints, overall!

I had the same Dentist for 30 years, and finding someone who would be as patient & understanding of my dental phobia was not easy. Dr. Follette & her staff actually had me smiling when I left, compared to exiting in tears as I often have. They have compassion, not just tolerance for dental chickens. Plus I really think she only does necessary work, so as not to subject already fearful patients to more discomfort.

Lindsey Reeves (Source: Google)


Dr. Follette was so great! She was able to see me on the same day that I requested an appointment, which I really appreciated! She was knowledgable, friendly, and very efficient and effective at correcting my cavity and broken tooth. I am thankful to have found such a great dentist on the Westside and would highly recommend Dr. Follette!

Elizabeth P. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Follette and her team are AMAZING. I had to get 2 cavities filled and I told Dr. Follette that I tend to cry. She was super tentative and gracious. Dr. Follette prides herself in the way she can numb your mouth and it’s true. She was very into the details and making me feel comfortable: making sure that the cavity was cleaned SUPER well and that the filling was perfect. Rosa was her right hand during the cavity filling and has been working with Dr. Follette for 33 years! She was THE sweetest. I actually held onto Rosa’s arm because I have PTSD with cavities. She was so gracious and made me feel safe. And SEPI! What an amazing dental hygienist. I have honestly never gotten my teeth so cleaned in my life. GO TO THEM. Seriously. I felt like family after my visits.

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


Dr. Follette and her team have been my go-to dental professionals for 27 years.  Put quite simply, I will go to no one else.  Not only do I get the best dental care in the Los Angeles region (of that I’m certain) I feel like I’m with family whenever I walk in their offices.  Dr. Follette always takes the time to make sure her work is perfect; in fact, I know when I’m ready to leave the dental chair when she uses that word “perfect.”  She won’t compromise until the job is done perfectly.  The same is true of the entire staff; everyone in the office is absolutely fantastic!  Dr. Follette stays abreast of all of the latest dental technology and has incorporated the best of these into her daily practice.  You will never go wrong if you place your dental care in the gentle hands of Dr. Carol Follette and her team.

Natasha R. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Follette is great – very straightforward and really explains any treatment with you so you understand why it is necessary. Also, I feel like  a lot of other dentists push unnecessary treatment on patients, and she does not – which is so important. Also, her receptionist (Amy) is fantastic!

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


Except for a couple of dark, dank years when my dental insurance was mediocre at best, I have been a loyal patient of Dr. Follete’s for a long time. She and her staff are professional and friendly and very encouraging of me and my teeth. It is quite possible that the world’s most gentle dental hygienists work here. I dare call them nurturing and kind. You will too. Does they wish I would floss more? Yes. Do I wish I would floss more? Double yes. Are we all working together for optimal dental health? Triple yes. And I’ll be back in 6 months for my cleaning.

Carol M. (Source: Zocdoc)


I met Carol for the first time today and really enjoyed her personality. Should also mention that I learned a thing or two, namely the procedure called free gingivitis grafting and her recommended toothpaste and wash which were new brands for me.

Alaine M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Another great visit with Dr Follette- the whole office team is wonderful. I was seen right away and everyone on the staff was very friendly. Even though i hate dentist visits, Dr Follette and her team made me feel comfortable and relaxed. I received excellent care and will definitely be going back.

Hosein K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Follette is the best dentist I’ve ever been to.  She is conservative with procedures, professional,  and highly reputable. Other dentists in Los Angeles were trying to milk every dollar out of me and do unnecessary procedures.  Dr. Follette is truly a breath of fresh air and I am so grateful that she is my dentist!

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


Let me just say that this is one dentist who goes the extra mile — Dr. Follette really cares about what happens to her patients and their families.  My elderly mother who lives in Las Vegas needs some work done.  She’s nervous about it, so Dr. Follette took time to make inquiries on our behalf to make sure we end up getting exactly what my mother needs.  As for me, I always feel I’m in the best hands when I’m at Dr. Follette’s.  From getting my teeth cleaned to getting cavities filled, the work has always been first rate.  I know Dr. Follette really cares about my teeth and comfort.

Sara G. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Follette is the friendliest dentist! She did my dental cleaning herself (instead of using a hygienist). I’m not sure if she cleans teeth of first time patients only? But this way she was able to carefully inspect my teeth, and found a filling about to break and also examined 2 chipped teeth. She was very thorough in all her answers, and I get the feeling she is an honest dentist who does not take advantage of patients financially. Friendly, clean office with a nice and efficient secretary as well.

Thomas G. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Follette is a great dentist who really took time to help me with my problems. I have been having trouble with my bite and she took the time to re-construct my biteguard (that another doctor had built poorly) free of charge.

Bill L. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Might be my favorite dentist ever. Dr. Carol is a real person and a someone who really cares about her patients. She has heart, humor and takes the time to make you understand whats going on with your teeth and what options are available. Her front office person, Amy–is a real pro and sets a great tone for this office. You just feel like you are in good hands from the moment you step into this office.
