Marenda M. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank the heavens for Dr. Shawn and his staff. I had a traumatic experience at a dentist 7 years ago and haven’t been to a dentist since (I know ..yuck). Well my gums started bleeding and I realized it was time to face the dentist again, I looked at many different dentist and their reviews before choosing Century City Smiles. First off going to their office, they screen you before entering to make sure no patients possibly have corona virus which I appreciated during this pandemic. Then I get to the office and the front desk was very sweet, they have complimentary water if you need it in a mini fridge in the lobby. My appointment was at 12 and they got me in a room very quickly. I explained to Dr  Shawn my fears and past experience and instead of getting frustrated with me he was very patient and sweet. I was then taken to get my x-rays done and although this is never comfortable, the friendly and talkative nurse that did my x-rays made it fly by. We even shared some laughs (never thought I’d laugh at the dentist ). Finally Dr. Shawn came in to chat about my teeth and I was surprised to learn I had no cavaties. Dr. Shawn  then explained how we were going to get my teeth back to perfect hygienic health and even cleaned away superficial tartar build up on my teeth (he even gave me 2 doses of gel on my gums to help with the pain). Dr. Shawn  was very sweet and would make sure I was okay at all times and even showed me the before and after of my teeth. I’m scheduled to go back for a deep cleaning and normally I’d be terrified but I’m actually not for once. My teeth look great and I feel so comfortable putting my dental health in this place. They even gave me a special mouthwash to help my sensitive teeth until my next appt to make the cleaning even less painful. Truly a wonderful dentist and staff, I can’t thank you enough for your patience with me today and making me feel safe at the dentist again. Thank you Century City Smiles, you have found yourself a life long client . UPDATE: I have been using the mouthwash as directed and brushing my teeth after every meal then flossing and I’m happy to say the bleeding in my gums has already stopped and the swelling is done completely! That’s all from one quick cleaning.. I can’t wait until my deep cleaning (crazy for me to be saying this) and to be able to see the change that will bring. Thank you again Dr. Shawn and his wonderful staff!! If only I could give 10 stars!

My family and I are so happy we have Dr. Saidian as our dentist. He sincerely cares for our well being and doing the best for my family. Our daughter had a rare dental condition, he searched and found us the best dental surgeon with whom he called before and after her surgery to ensure she had the best care. He truly goes above and beyond.

The team at Century City Smiles is very friendly & willing to work with the patient to meet their dental needs. I have never felt more comfortable at the dentist & I am so lucky this office is located conveniently across the street from work.

Morgan S. from Houston, TX (Source: Yelp)


From routine teeth cleanings, to a root canal, and now my wisdom teeth.. CC Smiles has taken care of me every step of the way! Their office is so helpful and efficient: always making sure I have everything that I need, and handling my insurance claims for me. My appointments go very smoothly, and Dr.Shawn always does a fantastic job. I have never experienced any difficulties or pain with my procedures. Highly recommend!

I highly recommend Dr Shawn! Very knowledgeable and experienced.  His hygienists are friendly. And sanitation protocol is in place for COVID time.  He works with you on payment. Ask about his in office “insurance plan”. Where routine care is included. And discounts given on services that may be needed. His front office staff is also lovely.

Steven A. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Shawn is a compassionate and empathetic dentist. Going to the dentist is not my favorite thing to do in the world, but Shawn made the process feel like a breeze. Above all, and most importantly, Century City Smiles is more than fairly priced for their services. I recommend Dr. Saidian’s office, A++!!

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


By far the best dental office I have been to. So happy to have found Dr. Saidian my whole family enjoy getting our teeth cleaned and examined in this office friendly front office staff gentle staff my 8 year old and 6 year old like to go get there teeth cleaned and go for checkup. Dr. Saidian is honest and explains everything to you so that it’s always your choice to what step to take next. Overall excellent experience highly recommend. This is my families dental office for life!!

Evan J. Kopelson (Source: Google)


Great staff, super friendly, and Dr Shawn is the best. He’s done 2 root canals and 3 crowns for me so far, and his work is first rate. What I like best is that he communicates clearly, always tells me what he’s doing, why he’s doing it, and when I have questions or feedback he’s a good listener and really cares.

I had such a wonderful experience with Dr Saidian and his amazing staff! From the second I walked into the office, everyone was extremely kind, caring, and professional. Dr Saidian has the best bedside manner and made me feel completely at ease he entire time, continuously checking in with me and explaining every step of my treatment. He was very capable, honest, and gentle in every way. I did Zoom teeth whitening and could not be happier with the results! I’ve gotten more compliments than I can count about my smile this week. Thank you so much!

Hanad M. from Tustin, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you so much to this office for the most pleasant dentist visits I could have! I had just about the easiest wisdom teeth extraction here as well. Dr. Saidian and his team are wonderful and incredibly capable. I look forward to being in their care. 6-star office!

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


I love this place! Dr. Shawn Saidian, Priscilla, Kathy, Vic and everyone I’ve interacted with here are always so kind and fun to be around. The care is perfect: gentle, thorough, and efficient. They are also great at explaining things clearly. It is now a pleasure to go to the dentist’s. I highly recommend Century City Smiles.

An absolute gem of a dentist! Very professional and accommodating staff. Easy to schedule and lots of available free parking. I’ve always been treated with the utmost kindness and respect by this office. Very gentle and skilled Dentist who takes the time to explain all options. I would highly recommend this practice for anyone looking for a great dentist who produces excellent work with minimal pain.

Joshua N. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had my first appointment with Dr. Saidian’s office and am happy to say I found my new favorite dentist! He and his staff were exceptional, took their time, and answered any questions I had throughout the appointment. Dr. Saidian even missed some things that my last dentist did. Better late than never! I highly recommend anyone who is thinking about switching dentists or needing a dentist to try this office out. It made going to do the dentist a lot easier.

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


I have never liked going to the dentist, but after my recent experience here I won’t be going anywhere else and am relieved to have found a quality, trustworthy dental office for the long term. Before even going into the office a HUGE benefit is how easily accessible the office is from Santa Monica Blvd., and the fact that there’s free parking on site–no small thing for any business in LA, let alone a dental office. Having bounced around a few different dentists through the years this office is a cut above the most, without being extravagant to the point where you feel like you’re paying for the overhead. It reminds me of the dental office I went to as a kid–feels like it’s been there forever but equipped with state of the art technology. I mean really: my exam room, which was private, had a big screen HDTV. One minute I was watching cable tv, the next minute they were using it to show me instant results of X-Rays they took of my teeth! The dentist there is also the kind of dentist you want. You’re not dollar signs to him. He actually cares about your well being and won’t try to sell you on any services you don’t need. When you know what a racquet the dental industry can be, knowing you can trust your dentist is the biggest relief of all. But perhaps the best part of my experience was the hygienist, who I would describe as legendary. It was the best hygienist I’ve EVER had. I would return to this office if for no other reason than for her skills and services. I’ve never had better. In summary, if anyone asked me to recommend a good dentist, this is the only place I can honestly recommend.

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


I had an appointment today at 12 and when I arrived I told them I was in a rush because I was on my lunch break and they responded very nicely to that. They all worked together and did what they could in the little time they had. Nancy did a gentle and great job at cleaning my teeth. The new owner at the practice who is also the dentist there was very sweet are caring. He saw that I needed work done and even said he’d stay late one evening to work on me and/or come in on a weekend for me despite closing at 6pm on weekdays and being closed on weekends. I’m excited to be coming here. I highly recommend.

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


Dr. Shawn is very knowledgeable, thorough and listens to the patient.  His hygienist, assistant, receptionist and staff are extremely competent and friendly.  I would highly recommend this dental office.  The office is clean, well equipped and convenient.

I am usually afraid and apprehensive of going to the dentist, but all of the staff and Dr. Saidian made my visit very comfortable and pleasant. I Went in for an exam,xrays and cleaning, i was treated respectfully and asked if i was ok or had questions throughout the procedure. I was able to get the run down on how my teeth were looking and what the best plan of action would be next. After putting off going to the dentist for awhile now, I’m glad i found a great dr. And staff to help ease myself back into regular visits. Highly recommended.

Via Garcia (Source: Google)


As someone with severe long standing I am no stranger to the dentist chair. I have been to countless dentists and Dr Saidian is the best I have come across. My son had his first appointment today and I cannot believe how honest, knowledgeable and kind he was. He is great treating children with special needs as well. I will be bringing back both my children back for braces (with his wife) which they desperately need and I will also be coming for major dental issues that I have been reluctant to have done everywhere else. Not just an amazing dentist, but a great person.

James K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Sometimes somebody does something and it makes you believe in everybody again.   During this Covid-19 lockdown, I managed to get a gnarly wisdom tooth infection that was really doing a number on me.  I almost went to the ER last night because my throat was closing on me.  I just needed a break and for somebody to help me.  Enter Shawn.  Within 3hrs of getting in touch, my tooth was out, my pain was GONE, and I’m at home eating something for the first time today.  I haven’t really slept since Thursday night and just beyond grateful to have my life back. Stuff like this shouldn’t go unnoticed, means the world to somebody in my position and should be the primary reason you call this office next time you need some help.   Most competent and wonderful people.

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


Dr. Shawn and his staff are absolutely fantastic. He and his staff are warm, welcoming, and reassuring. Dr. Shawn makes sure explain every step his is going through and explains why he makes recommendations in order to keep you informed. My experience with Century City Smile was  excellent and I would not hesitate to recommend him to my family or friends. Dr. Shawn has made it in a way that visiting the dentist isn’t a traumatic or even daunting experience.

It was very amazing. Cynthia takes her time to get know her patients. Dr. Shawn has done treatment on me & my family. We are very pleased with their work

Love this dental practice! Adore Dr. Shawn and his entire staff. Everyone is so personable, funny and of course professional. My teeth are happy and healthy and my gums, divine. I used to loathe having my teeth cleaned because of very sensitive tooth but Dr Shawn’s hygienist is fabulous.  Go here now and save those pearly whites

F. Tosh (Source: Google)


The best experience at the dental Doctor’s office.  I am each and every time grateful to this doctor for his heartfelt treatments. Also the dental cleaning is important with the dental office. The dental hygienist there is excellent, the best as well. I am also thankful to the office staff/receptionists there who are always polite and kind. I am so glad I found this dental office in LA.

Jocelyn S. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


I hate dentists. Like absolutely hate them. I think it runs in the family? Anyway, this is the first dentist I’ve ever really liked and trusted. So much that I let him take out my wisdom teeth and it was so smooth and painless! Dr. Shawn Saidian is the bestttt, and I feel like he really cares about his patients. My partner had a really bad wisdom tooth infection, and he was able to see him and fix him up so quickly! Super accommodating, kind, and professional! Can’t thank him enough!!

Jonathan O. from Pacific Palisades, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Saidian is a truly exemplary dentist.  I have been going to him for my dental care for years.  His bedside manner is great.  He explains all of the issues and procedures to you in detail.  It shows that he truly cares.  I recommend him highly to all of my friends and family!

Connie T. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I started going to Century City Smiles a couple years ago, and I have referred two other people to them, who have a history of being afraid of dentists but who have also been happy with them. Dr. Shawn Saidian and the entire staff are professional and friendly. They communicate well regarding co-pays and insurance, and from what I can tell they do not recommend unneeded dental work in order to make money. (I’ve had bad experiences both with dentists pushing unneeded procedures and with billing insurers for procedures I never got.) The office has new equipment and you can see your x-rays displayed on a screen in the room.

Paul M. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow! Dr. Shawn is the best! What an extraordinary doctor, with such a kind heart. He only has your best interest in mind. If you need a specialist, he will recommend you to the others in his league. Our amazing, talented friend, Kathy, his Assistant, has decades of experience taking care of patients just like you.  Dr. Shawn’s wife, Dr. Tania, is equally as kind and wonderful. Our whole famliy goes to Dr. Shawn . Our daughter sees Dr. Tania for her braces, who is so gentle and sweet to our daughter. Vic cleans your teeth to perfection! The entire front staff is just as wonderful. This is a pro team! We trust them, and they treat us like family. If you are looking for the best, look no further!

I have been very pleased with the treatment in this office especially in a difficult/urgent situation. Both Staff and Dr. have been so very patient, comforting and helpful. Took excellent care. I definitely recommend!!

Michael Marnier (Source: Google)


Dr Shawn and his supplier of world-class veneers did a fantastic job on my upper teeth. So good, I had him do the lowers done, too. I now enjoy a beautiful, natural-looking smile. All smiles delivered with the highest quality by Century City Smiles.

Jessica S. from Central LA, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t have dental insurance and they made sure to take care of me. I would definitely recommend them to anyone that wants a clean environment, fast service, and honest service. Dr Shawn is personable, down to earth, and upfront/open about what precedere needs to be performed.

Summer B. from Chevy Chase, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shawn is amazing and so is his staff! They are professional, empathetic and efficient. The wait time is limited and the procedures are quick/painless. For the first time in my life, I have no qualms about going to the dentist. Highly recommend!

M. L. (Source: Zocdoc)


I get periodontal and orthodonic service from Century City Smiles. They genuinely care about my dental health. I’ve regularly gone to other dentists, but since I started at Century City Smiles, my dental health has significantly improved. They give practical advice and feedback, work to fit my schedule, and make visits pleasant. I would highly recommend to others.

Cathy Rauch (Source: Google)


I have an implant procedure. All of it has been wonderful. Staff, doctors, information is excellent. I was a bit scared of pain and length of procedure, but it was really fine. It all went smoothly and relatively quickly. It is the day after the procedure, and I have no pain or discomfort at all. I also really appreciate how warm and friendly everyone is in the office. I feel well cared for. thank you

Jenny I. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve never gone on the internet to review a DENTIST of all businesses, but I was truly blown away by the care that I received at this office. I am a new patient as of yesterday, and I went in for cleanings with my fiancee. I get cleanings routinely, but with a different dentist. Dr. Shawn and his staff took the time to give me a full hour cleaning. Wow! In all of my 30 years of going to the dentist, I have never had a full hour with the care and professionalism this office provides. The doctor was within arm’s length, and the hygenist, Vic, was so careful and precise. They uncovered some dental work that I need to have done that no other doctor had uncovered. Dr. Shawn was honest and sat down with me to go over my dental records and make recommendations for fillings, and not only tell me but SHOW me why the work was needed. He did not push me to do any work. The visit was so informative. My husband and I are so happy with our visit. The doctor put me on a dental plan for the next 12 months and I will be going back to him to start the work. Their office also offered payment plans and reasonable pricing which i especially important to me since I do not have dental insurance! Highly recommended.

Zoe B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Century City Smiles since before Dr. Shawn took over. Although it was always a wonderful place to go for dental work, Dr. Shawn has made it so much better! The staff is wonderful and SUPER knowledgable from the front office ladies, to the dental tech, Kathy, to the dental hygienist, Cynthia. They all know what they’re doing and take time to get to know you, your mouth, and make sure you understand what’s going on. Dr. Shawn is the exact same way. He is patient and wants to know exactly what your needs are and what you hope to get out of your visit. He’s flexible and willing to change or add treatments (fillings in my case) depending on what you want to do. He’s not pushy at all, and you can tell that he is genuinely in this because he loves what he does. Even after the first two appointments he knew my name and remembered the gist about me. I’ve been to other dentists in LA in the past and only felt like a dollar sign to them, that’s not the case as Century City Smiles. They’re genuinely kind and caring people who want the best for your oral health. Dr. Shawn is overall a conservative dentist and won’t push you to get work done that you don’t need, which is something that is super important to me. The whole office is very honest and trustworthy.   I can’t recommend this place enough! Logistics: -Accessible with a free private parking lot, occasionally full but usually a spot, otherwise metered street parking is usually available -Easy to book appointments! -They have in-office dental insurance which is a life saver for me! -Super nice people -Usually offer water, tea, coffee while you wait -On-time never waiting more than a few mins to get seated usually -In house instant X-Rays, no need to wait or have to come back -TVs in every exam room that they’ll set to whatever you want -High tech teeth camera thingy which is crazy cool -Also super clean and well organized
