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

Christina B. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Lam for almost 8 years. Outstanding in every way. I commute for over an hour to see her – she will always be my choice for dental care. I had many problems/difficult situations that Dr. Lam handled perfectly. She is excellent with fearful patients (me) and has wonderful instincts and judgment about what the patient needs. The entire staff is amazing. Julianne is incredible and has helped me through many challenges with decisions about my teeth. I can’t say enough good things about everyone in the practice. Highly, highly recommended

I have been subjected to 40 years of “old school” dentistry that left me with the usual fear of dentists and pretty poor teeth. Dr Lam reversed all that. She had the patience to restore both my smile and my faith in dentistry She is so gentle and patient. She truly cares about each and every patient She get’s excited about the “perfect crown”, which I have never experienced before. So now, while I do not love going to the “dentist” I maintain my teeth knowing that I have the best dentist ever

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


I have been seeing Dr. Lam for about a year and a half and have been ecstatic with the results.  She is very gentle (I’m a huge baby when it comes to my teeth) and a pleasure to visit.  Dr. Lam’s staff is amazing as well. I broke one of my fake front teeth out (Saturday night)  and Dr. Lam was out of town on vacation for the next week, so I found myself in quite a pickle.  However, I walked in Monday morning, and Julianne, Dr. Lam’s assistant was able to help me right away.  I feel blessed to have a dentist that I can trust, let alone an office full of staff that I trust just as much! Thank you again Julianne, I am getting married in two weeks….so that missing front tooth would have really cramped my style in the pictures.

I have had the pleasure of seeing Dr. Lam and her staff for almost 14 years. I always enjoy my visit with them. Dr. Lam has helped me establish excellent oral hygiene, and my teeth and mouth have never been cleaner. Most recently, she did a new kind of procedure on my two front teeth to remove large white spots that I had since the teeth came in as a child. I look like a totally new person now because of Dr. Lam. Thank you Dr. Lam!

Dr. Lam is everything you want in a dentist. She’s super friendly yet attentive and very professional throughout your entire visit. She makes you feel right at home as her attention to details puts you right at ease while she works her magic. Julie Anne and the hygenist are also always super nice and helpful at answering all your questions. Whether you have insurance questions, or even general dental questions, they’ll be sure to take care of you. Dr. Lam always puts her patients first with the BEST service. I definitely recommend her to all my friends for all of thier dental needs!

My entire family has been patients of Dr. Lam for over four years now and every time it’s been a great experience. Even though we moved out of the LA area two years ago, we still make the hour drive up there because she always does a thorough job and is honest with you about what you need to work on to keep your teeth in better shape. She’s also great with my little brother so she’s a great dentist for kids too. Both hygienists are also extremely nice and thorough when it comes to cleaning your teeth. Overall, her office has a very relaxed, soothing vibe and all the staff members are super friendly!

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



I generally don’t like Dentists, but Dr Lam is the exception. She is both personable and professional. My teeth are terrible, but she takes good care of me from root canals to cavities. On my last visit I got a thorough cleaning and she checked me out thoroughly for any new cavities. It was fast and painless. I’m not a big fan of going downtown, but she is worth it. Now my girlfriend and I are dedicated to staying with this dentist. After a bad history of “Marathon Man” type dentists she’s the one to feel “safe” with

Harriet R. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love Dr. Lam…she not only cares about your health and your teeth but she also cares about you as a person.  I am one that hates going to the dentist but I went to Dr. Lam after a high recommendation from a friend…she is the best dentist I have ever been to in my life!  As soon as she walks in to greet you, you immediately feel at ease.  You can really see how much she loves what she does and it is demonstrated in the care she provides to her patients.  I would highly highly recommend Dr. Lam…no need to look further for your dentist…go and see her!

I love Dr. Lam and her staff I’ve been going to her for years. She is very knowledgeable and gentle. I never have to wait more than a couple minutes when I arrive for my appointment. Julieanne is awesome!! Amber is great at cleaning teeth — very gentle and nice

Maria M. from Beaumont, CA (Source: Yelp)


As soon as you walk in you are welcomed into an office full of serenity and greeted by a warm smile from Julianne. Both Dr Lam and Julianne take their time with each and every single patient and make sure the patient understands what is needed and what exactly is done. Julianne goes above and beyond to not only assist Dr Lam with your restorative procedures but also pre-authorize the treatment so a patient knows $ numbers before scheduling next appt. Dental offices are NOT obligated to let you know what your patient portions are and what your insurance coverage is. Technically patients are responsible to figure that out but they do it for you in order to ease your day, Anyone who has a complain about Julianne does not understand the measure this woman goes through everyday with switching from front desk to back office duties. Julianne is Dr Lam’s 2nd hand and she keeps the office running smoothly for Dr Lam. I had the greatest pleasure knowing both Dr Lam and Julianne for 5 years and I can tell you that because of these two ladies especially with Julianne’s different office roles , I have been able to take on more responsibilities and learn more about how to help run an office. My professionalism and stay on sharp skills I owe to these two women and I have to say “Thank you” Dr Lam and Julianne for your hospitality and care that you have both given me!

This dental office not only does wonderful work, but they’ve never kept me waiting for an appointment and their staff is awesome! Funky modern decorations distract you from procedures, not to mention the TVs in each exam room for the viewing pleasure of the patient. Being from Maine, I’m used to small-town care where doctors actually take the time to talk to you. It’s great that I was able to find such a place in CA

I had been to a different Doctor in Redondo Beach and was told about some work that needed to be done. I wanted a second opinion, so I was referred to Dr.Lamm by my brother in law who is a dentist as well. He highly recomended her as she was a class mate from USC, the best one in his opinion.  I totally agree. She saved me from an unnecessary crown and found two other urgent problems. I have never waited more than 5 minutes. The staff is friendly and very courteous. I wish I had gone to her a long time ago because she would have saved me from some other problems that have gone unnoticed

John H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Lam for almost 10 years now and have been very happy with the service that I’ve received all these years from her and the rest of the staff! I first went to see her because I was experiencing major issues with one of my molars.  It turns out that I had cracked the molar and she did what she could to save the tooth.  I had a lot of bad experiences with the dentist I grew up with because any procedure would turn out to be painful, so I was very pleasantly surprised when Dr. Lam focused on making sure that any potential pain was managed.  She made sure that I didn’t really feel anything and the first few procedures were painless. Unfortunately, my molar turned out to be a more major issue (this is what happens when you don’t go to the dentist for years) and I wound up having to get an implant.  Dr. Lam, together with the periodentist she recommended, did a great job removing the old tooth and putting in the implant.  I haven’t had any issues since then. I’ve now been seeing her the better part of 9 years and I only have good things to say.  Her demeanor (along with the rest of the staff) has always been friendly, cheerful, concerned and professional.  After all these years, I feel like part of the office’s family.  I recommend Dr. Lam to anyone that is looking for a dentist, particularly in the DTLA area.  I will be a loyal patient for as long as I’m in the LA area

Doug P. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to many dentists in my life, and I have to say that Dr Lam is top of the list. She’s done really good work on my teeth, and actually got me flossing (something previous dentists couldn’t do). Julianne has always been very helpful as well, and squeezes me in when I’m in pain, and works with me to find which plan best suits my financial situation at the time. Would def refer friends to Dr Lam

John Fisher (Source: Facebook)


Dr Lam is a fine dentist. Working within the financial constraints of my teacher dental insurance Dr Lam has managed to fix problems on 8 teeth and to help me manage maintenance of the rest of my teeth until such time we can address those problems. I thank Dr Lam for my dental health

Brooke S. from Tucson, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Lam for about 2 1/2 years now.  My first year with her consisted of extensive restorative work, that was already partially completed when I started with her.  I have very thin enamel and grind my teeth, and before I started all that work I had not been to the dentist in 3-4 years. I started the work with a dentist near my home, but when I changed jobs to an office downtown it became too much of an issue to take 1/2 day off to go back to the valley for dental work when I was going in every couple of weeks.  Dr. Lam is located across the street from my office so I figured I’d try her out – and I wasn’t disappointed. Dr. Lam did fillings, replaced old crowns, and also replaced old veneers on my two front teeth that were overdue and leaking.  Two additional veneers were added on either side of the two front teeth, as well.   I had the veneers done for structural reasons, not cosmetic, but she was still an absolute perfectionist about them and I must say that they look FABULOUS.  She also created a nightguard for me, and prior to having my veneers done I did have my teeth whitened, which went very well also. When having all this work done, I have many times claimed that Dr. Lam should win an award for her handling of the novicaine gun.  Dead  serious – you barely feel it! For the last 2 years my teeth have stayed in perfect condition.  I have been a model citizen when it comes to home care and have my cleanings done regularly.  I’ve been so happy with Dr. Lam’s work that I have systematically referred a group of my co-workers over to her and new employees usually hear about her in their first two weeks

I have been going to Dr. Lam for more than a few years now. She and her team are great. She addresses any issues I have, keeps my teeth white and looking good, and spends enough time with me on each visit to make sure all is well. Besides just being a great dentist, the office is great in that appointment times are always kept. I am seen at my appointment time with almost no waiting, so it’s easy to plan work meetings around each dentist visit. Thanks Dr. Lam and team!

Dr. Lam has always been very professional and thorough in her treatment of me. I have much confidence in her; she obviously cares about the dental health of her patients and encourages us to take good care of our teeth. Her office staff is also very courteous and efficient; wait times are short and regular maintenance visits take less than an hour

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


Dr. Lam is the best of the best when it comes to dentists.  I have been a patient of hers for over 8 years.  She is super convenient for those of us who work in downtown LA.  I am no longer working in downtown but still commute from the westside to see her b/c she is that good! I’ve referred many friends to her over the years.  Her office is modern, immaculate and quite cheerful (which is what you want to see when visiting a dentist’s office!).  Dr. Lam truly cares about her patients and takes as much time as needed to answer questions that you may have concerning your teeth.  She is punctual, which I appreciate as well.  She values her patients’ time. I have no reservations what-so-ever in recommending Dr. Lam to anyone who is looking for a really good dentist.

Chris P. from California (Source: Yelp)


I’ve gone to Dr. Lam twice thus far.  She takes the time to explain everything to you about your current dental situation and what and why she recommends certain procedures.  She’s very pleasant and sets one at ease, especially if they’re like me…terrified of visiting the dentist.  I’m glad I found her and will continue seeing Dr Lam for all of my dental needs

Ben K. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


We started going to Dr. Lam eight years ago and have NEVER ever been unhappy. She is careful and incredibly thorough, and always keeps you informed and in the loop. She’s fun and friendly, and I never dread going to the dentist anymore. Unlike some other offices, you know you’re always going to see Dr. Lam and get anything you need. Her staff is also friendly and super well-trained

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


Dr. Lam knows her stuff!  Not only was my experience great, it was also pain free.  I drive all the way from Pacific Palisades to see her. Her staff are very attentive, sweet and professional.  I highly recommend Dr. Lam as a Dentist and for all your dental cosmetic needs


Our priority is to provide a caring environment to focus on your dental needs and concerns. This office is committed to educating and listening to our patients so that we can improve your overall smile, esthetics, and well being. We focus on a comprehensive approach to treatment with not only a cosmetic concern for the teeth, but the stability of the gum tissue as well. Our office is located in the beautiful Fine Arts Building; a Los Angeles landmark built in the 1920’s and declared a historical monument in 1974. The exterior, with its ornate Romanesque entrance, arched high above decorative bronze doors was patterned after early Christian churches. The building features a magnificent two story entrance lobby of molded terra cotta and colored tile with a fountain surrounded by sculptured figures and seventeen bronze showcasing contemporary artwork. The Fine Arts Building is on the LA Conservancy Walking Tour. Dr. Carol Lam received her dental degree at the University of Southern California. Prior to establishing her private practice in the Financial District of downtown Los Angeles, she was in private practice in Newport Beach, California. Dr. Lam now lives in Los Angeles and has a very active family with two young boys and a golden retriever.
