PATIENT REVIEWS

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

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

★★★★★

Okay so since my last review, which wasn’t too long ago, I felt my review should be updated based on recent experiences. I am in the process of making my husband a patient — he has major health issues, so getting dental help can prove difficult (doctor calls, etc.). The entire staff has gone completely out of their way to help us go through that process and ensure my husband gets the proper, safest dental care. Further, all the ladies there were super friendly, personable, and thorough. They really explained the situation and contacted his doctors. Also, they are helping me figure out a longterm and reasonably priced plan. My husband has a true phobia of dentists, and they even made him feel comfortable. I feel comfortable referring friends and family.

They are extremely efficient, all the newest technology and super passionate about dental health. I’ve had a cavity, a chip, whitening and deep cleaning done and love them. They have a digital dental health chart they show you for each tooth improvement from visit-to-visit, very motivating. LOVE the dental tech/associate! I had no idea my previous dentists were lacking (they were perfectly fine), but Century Dental is WORLDS apart.

I’ve had a lot of bad experiences with other dentists, but Century Smile has really turned that around for me. The entire staff is so friendly and kind, and when I had to get a root canal and a wisdom tooth extracted they made me feel so calm and really took care of me. I can’t recommend them enough to everyone who asks for a dentist referral at work and with friends.

★★★★★

Just like everyone else i hate going to the dentist because it’s scary and painful. When I went to Dr Talaie at the culver city clinic the first time I had a crack in my tooth and gum infection and lots of cavities and when she explained the process to me I thought it’s going to be so bad and painful, but she made it really easy and pleasant and she explained every step in the process so I’ll know what’s going on. Also she’s really fast and her work is painless. She never let me wait  and she’s always polite and smiling which is very important to me and makes it easier and more pleasant to get my teeth done. I highly recommend this office and Dr Talaie.

If you are looking for friendly, honest, and affordable oral care, you need to go see Dr. Talaie and her staff. They were able to squeeze me in for emergency services, relieved my pain and fixed my broken tooth. Dr. Talaei showed me actual pictures of my teeth (not just x-rays which I can’t even understand) and explained why I needed to care better for my teeth. It was also really nice to be educated on the preventative measures I can take to keep my teeth healthy. My teeth have definitely found a new home!

Lanae P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Amazing! I’m super happy I found this place. I had a horrible dental experience at a previous dentist a year ago which left me with an infection and the need for a root canal (gag). So when I was in need of an emergency visit, they were so nice. They’re staff is seriosuly the best, they’re all so sweet and helpful. My root canal wasn’t even bad at all, I don’t even get the whole big ordeal that comes with it, it was a total dream compared to most of the dental visits I’ve had at other places. And of course, I am in need of a few other things, but I have no problem at all with that. Typically I would be confused and freaked out by the high cost and tooth problems dentists throw at me, but evething was explained so clearly and I even got a little color coded map drawn of my mouth of the important work and stuff that can wait, which makes my wallet happy as well. Dr. Talaie and all her staff definitely deserve credit for being awesome.

I have beed a patient of Dr Maryam Talaie for over 10 years. She is the absolute best!!!! Extremely professional and honest in all aspects. She always spend adequate time explaining the options, plan and procedure, and everything turns out as discussed. No surprises. She is an artist not just a dentist but a dentist that treat teeth as art. Moreover, she has a superb staff!!! She and everyone there are super friendly, kind, wonderful professionals that do the job VERY WELL and obviously like doing it because every trip there has been a real pleasure. Thanks so much Dr. Talaie, Jarvin, Janine, Channel and Victoria for making me look great!!! And Michael for being so helpful and professional. I could not recommend her highly enough!! Also she is a USC Trojan!!!!!! THANKS!

I recently became a patient of Dr. Talaie/Century Smile. I came in for a routine check up and cleaning after neglecting my teeth for a long time. Dr. Talaie and her staff took such a great care of me. Jarvin, the hygienist, made the deep cleaning, a tolerable process, even managed to have some laughter. I also had a wisdom tooth extraction and Dr. Rafiee, the periodontist, was amazing. Upon coming home after the extraction, I had some bleeding, and Dr. Rafiee stayed on the phone with me to make sure I was ok, and even offered emergency services if I needed, and it was already 9pm. Century Smile, they defintely go above and beyond. Thank you for making me not hate dentist visits! Dr. Talaie, I will be seeing you soon for my fillings and teeth whitening.

My upper partial broke in half. I called and they got me in the same day! Everyone was friendly, helpful, and really cool! The office manager worked with my insurance and I’m getting what I need. I’m so thankful Century Smile was the for me! I’d recommend to everyone!! Update: I got the same day dentures he and I’m really satisfied! I’ve had them for 3 months now and just got them resigned this week. I’m moving out of state but I highly recommend this office! Thank you to EVERYONE!!

★★★★★

I’m really shocked by some of the posts I’ve seen. I’ve been Dr. T’s patient for 3 years and she has always been very professional. She has yet to make me feel bad about my teeth or my failure to take proper care of them. She explains everything thoroughly and does an amazing job, minus the pain. Yes, NO PAIN!!! I’ve gone to other dentists who have been sooooo cheap with their novacain that I cried the whole way through my procedures. BUT not Dr. Talaie, she makes sure you’re comfortable. I’ve had a root canal done, crowns and partial crowns, deep cleanings and have always been happy with her work and the work of her staff. Gabby her office manager is a sweetheart and so is her hygienist MarMar. Awesome work, awesome staff! Thx, guys!

Came in yesterday for wisdom teeth extraction. I’ve been experiencing a lot of jaw pain and couldn’t chew so I wanted it to be ASAP. Made an appointment on Wednesday and came in Thursday and got my wisdom teeth extracted. Took me in right right at the time of my appointment so there wasn’t any lag. I did probably too much reading on WebMD but century smile dental did a great job at answering all my questions patiently. Appreciated that a lot. Local anesthesia. All in all, overall a positive experience here although I couldn’t have imagined saying this (I hate going to the dentist) Parking is easy & free

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

Have been here several times with excellent results! The first time I came here it was because I had cracked a tooth all the way to the root while eating a chocolate bar. They had to remove the tooth. It was sad but also funny. Then a year later the same thing happened to the tooth in the same spot on the other side of my mouth, but I came to the office in time, and they were able to save the tooth! It was very exciting for me. That was over a year ago, and the crown that’s there now is in beautiful shape. As far as talking about procedures and pricing, I find them to be more than reasonable. When I got the crown, the receptionist went through every option with me, telling me what I could realistically expect from each one while also considering my budget. I didn’t choose the most expensive option, and they gave me a break on the price because I pay out of pocket. My experiences with the doctor and the rest of the staff since then have always been great. They are friendly and fun to talk to, which makes routine trips to the dentist almost pleasurable 🙂 Also, the office is cute, calming, and welcoming. It even has a Keurig coffee machine. I love those things. And don’t miss the free parking lot right next to the building!

I hate the dentist. I am a grown man and I don’t think anything scares me more. Needless to say it has been a few years since I have been. However, the dentists at Century smile made going to the dentist as “pain free” as it could be. They were careful and thorough while not being pushy or trying to upsell me. I was there for almost 3 hours (as I said, it had been a while) and they did everything they could (offering me headphones and more novocaine than a horse) to make it go by as quickly as it could. I left feeling like I had a new set of teeth and actually wanting to do the upkeep to make each subsequent (and more frequent) appointment as easy as possible. For a scaredy cat like me, if you gotta go to the dentist, this is the place. Also, they worked with my insurance to make the process relatively pain free on my wallet as well.

I am 58 years old and I have been going to Dr. T for about one year now.  This is the “GREATEST” dentist office I have ever been to and I have been to a lot of dentist in my 58 years. I am in “shock” over what some  of these people have said about Dr. T and her staff.  Dr. T is very professionally but she tells you the truth about what is going on with your teeth.  If you don’t want to hear the “truth” I suggest that you don’t go to Dr. T. When I first saw Dr. T and her staff I had been unemployed for 3 years and I had that gum disease really bad and was in a lot of pain because of it. Her office manager “Gabby” who is absolutely “wonderful” and who cares about every single patient that walks in that office worked with me to make payments so I could have deep scaling done. I honestly don’t know what I would have done if I had not found Dr. T and her staff. Gabby goes above and beyond for Dr. T’s patience and I’m glad to have her on my side.  Trust me she is in no way a neck snapping tattooed finger receptionist. First of all she is the office manager and a damn good one too! I am now getting ready to do some major dental work with Dr. T and her staff and I could not be happier. I know I am in very good hands. I have had many crappy dentist in the past so I know what a good dentist is and what isn’t and Dr. T and her staff are the GREATEST. On top of that I have never been to a dental office where I was offered coffee and water in the lobby like Dr. T has for her patience. These people with these horrible comments about Dr. T and her staff are very “unhappy” people and are not going to be unhappy wherever they go. How dare you try to ruin someone reputation after all the schooling they have been through and all the work and effort it has taken Dr. T to  build her business.  Just remember “what goes around comes around” and you will get yours too.  These people are such liars.  I have never gotten one text message or one phone call about my appointments, and I have had a lot of appointments.  I get one email a week before to confirm my appointment and then one email the day before my appointment as a reminder. Unbelievable these people. All I can say is, Dr. T their is a lot of sick people in this world and unfortunately they found you. If you are reading my comment please do not let these idiots influence you in any way.  Go meet Dr. T and her staff for yourself.  I can tell you with “great” confidence that you will be “very” happy if you do! I’ll see you tomorrow Dr. T for my new crowns!

I am from NYC and upon moving to LA was super duper fussy on who I choose as my dentist. I recommend this office for anyone who is seeking quality dental care- guaranteed! Dr. Talaei is intelligent, personable, and detail oriented. The front desk calls the insurance to make sure you are aware of everything related to billing so you aren’t caught off guard. Caring, efficient and everything is explained to the tee before doing the procedure. Glad I was referred to her on the West Coast and super happy with the experience. An incredible dentist! If you are looking for a great dentist don’t hesitant on choosing Dr. T and Century Smile Dental!

When I moved to Los Angeles 11 years ago, my teeth were in pretty bad condition. The first dentist I went to was a nightmare. Then I came to Dr. Talaie and she fixed EVERYTHING. She’s also calm, pleasant and explains things very well. All the qualities you want from a dentist. The office staff has always been friendly. They are also great at helping people understand all the options. They care about helping me find the best insurance and solutions for any issues I’ve had. This is my dentist for the long haul!

Allie A. from Eatontown, NJ (Source: Yelp)

I just recently moved to LA and have been seeing the same dentist on the east coast since I was a little girl. I needed to schedule a dental consultation to get my wisdom teeth checked out since I was starting to feel some discomfort. The overall area is super cute right off of Venice Blvd in Culver City. Parking was easy to find and navigate. The office is adorable inside. They offered free water, coffee, juice, etc and great magazines. It’s a smaller practice, but I loved that it wasn’t in a huge corporate building – made it feel more homey. Dr. Talaie was so welcoming, honest, caring, and all around professional during my first visit. The wait time was very short (10 minutes) and the MA took my x-rays right away! Being a foreigner in the area, I’ve never felt more welcome and at home! I’m so glad that I went to Century Smile – I’ll be going here for a long time!

My experience was nothing less than a pleasure. The work I had done felt more like going for a hair cut than the dentist because it was so painless and relaxing. I researched a few dentist and came across Century Smile. I needed two wisdom teeth pulled, root canal, and a cavity filled. I was far from excited for what was to come. All the work was done in one appointment, it went so well at one point I asked the Dr. if it was now time to pull the teeth and he said it was already done. I was back to work the next day. The Dentist are true professionals and I’m happy to say I’ve found a dentist I can feel 100% comfortable going back to and sending my friends and family too.

I find my visits to Century Smile Dentistry are always a positive experience. The Staff is professional & cordial. Dr. Maryam radiates competence & Rrofessionalism. The cost & prices are reasonable and flexible. I’ve had some seven or eight Dentists in my life to living in different states & countries over many many years. I would rate Century Smile an A+ experience and put it as NUMBER ONE! Gratefully, Dr. Thomas Hedberg, Ph.D., LMFT.

I had the same dentist since i was a kid and thats all I know about  dentists. I use to avoid and hate going there. Everytime, it was a heavy bill and a whole day of losing work and sitting in the waiting area, till last year that my Dr was out of town and I had to look for a new dentist…After coming to century smile my world  change.there prices was almost half of what I was payin and and this time ther was no waiting around.the stuff are super friendly and professional, and the Dr was even nicer.She exam and give me the best edvices and more important of all helped me to quit smoking and i love her for that more than anything.Dr talai is now mine and my family dentist and we are really happy to have her.HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

I’m actually shocked by the previous reviews of Dr. Talaie. I found her extremely professional, nice and very good at what she does. I found this place through a Groupon for whitening and stayed with them. Finally a doctor who didn’t try to force extra work on my gums or teeth that I didn’t need and she actually took pictures of each tooth that had a problem and showed me live the issues beyond any doubt. When I was told odd the work that needed to be done, not only did she recommend what is more urgent and what can wait until I can afford more work done, but her office even helped me get a great credit line for it and now I’m paying it over one year no interest. Also, she had to numb one side of my face both up and down and she was the most gentle at doing that that I’ve ever experienced. I never even felt the needles going in. On top of it all, I never wait more than five minutes when I get to the office and everyone who works there is personable, nice and professional. I’m recommending her to all my friends.

This office is awesome from the reception all the way to the amazing owner Dr. Maryam Talaie. The staff is very inviting and so nice it makes you want to go there every day just to see how their day is going. Not to talk about the pain free amazing job Dr. Talaie did. I had veneers done and needed some more work done on my other teeth. Needless to say I have finally found a dentist home after years here in Los Angeles. Dr. Talaie and her team really are something special. The time they took to make sure I was ok and actually breaking down what they were doing was amazing. Dr. Talaie is without a doubt the best dentist around!

I visited Century Smile while on my trip from Australia. I was referred to Dr. Talaie by a friend, who’s also their patient. Had the best experience at this dentist office over all! As soon as I stepped into the office I had a warm welcoming from the receptionist Janine. She made sure I was checked in properly and had everything verified before my appointment. She never let her smile die from her face. Then once I was seated, Dr. Talaie was very sweet and informative. Always made sure I was comfortable during my visit. Lastly, upon checking out, they were very helpful on trying to get the best deal and payment arrangement possible. I would highly recommend this office. Best experience from front all the way to back staff.

I hate going to the dentist… but Century Smile and Dr. Talaie are absolutely AMAZING.  It is almost impossible for tears not to stream down my face when sitting in a dentist chair – but they were able to make me feel safe and comfortable. The work they are doing on my teeth is top notch and I wouldn’t go to any other dentist in the world.  I have dealt with a lot of dentists – and my teeth are in terrible shape – and although it is all so overwhelming to think about all of the work I need done- Dr. Talai, Mar Mar and Gaby were all able to figure out a plan, help me fit it with my financial situation and keep it from ruining everything. I can’t say enough good things about these guys – they are the best and I love them!!

I’ve had a GREAT experience at Century Smile, starting from the first day, when I wandered in without an appointment and they fit me right in. They were much more thorough with x-rays and testing my gums than previous dentists, and I really feel like I’m in good hands. After a meeting with the hygienist, everyone at work thought my teeth looked so white, and I didn’t even do whitening!  I feel more informed about my teeth and am working on stopping my grinding at night with their help.  They are extremely nice ladies who understand that dental stuff is expensive. It feels like they really care.  I’m a happy customer!!  I will update more after my deep clean and after I get my mouth guard (if I remember.

In the world of Dental insurance, it’s often that we don’t get to choose our dentist but rather the insurance company choose it for us. In my case, I was given a short list of dental offices in my area and I lucked out on my selection. The first time I walked into Century Smile, I was welcomed by a group of friendly smiles. It has been almost 5 years since my last visit. Although I floss and brushed daily, it’s inevitable that they found problems. It turned out that I would need extensive work which involves extraction and implant. And with the help from their billing department, I switched to PPO, opened a flex account through work, and 2 years later, I now have an implant/ new tooth and my gum health has improved a great deal. I stayed with the same dental hygienist and he’s friendly and gentle with this touch.  All and all, my experience has been wonderful and I highly recommend Century Smile.

I have been Dr. Talaei patient for years. I love this location the most. The staffs are friendly, they follow up with you as you desired. I have very sensitive gums and in the past I have been to multiple dentists which they didn’t have my interest at heart. Dr. Talaei has the best of her patients at heart. she wants them to have healthy mouth and teeth and they are NOT money making machines for her. She has taken care of my sensitive gums for years and I have the painless experience of my life. She has become our family dentist and she has earned my recommendation.

I use to dread going to the dentist until I came to Century Smile and met Dr. Talaie and her wonderful staff! My experience from day one was a breeze. I have sensitive gums and am usually in a world of discomfort at the dentist but with Dr. Talaie gentle touch I no longer fear my check ups 🙂 The office is fully equipped with state of the art digital x-rays and fancy screens where they can zoom in and you can see what’s really going on with your teeth! After having such a great experience I have referred friends, family and co-workers to switch their dentist and see Dr. Talaie! My best friend had also fear going to the dentist as she hadn’t been in over 10 years or so and now she can’t stop talking about the great experiences she has had at Century Smile! All in all every visit is a pleasure and leaves me wanting to show off my pearly whites! Thank you Dr. Talaie & your amazing team!

I have had few different dentist and definitely Dr Talaie has been my favorite. I Trautt her suggestions and I know she is looking for my best interest and doesn’t wanna make money of me by suggesting unnecessary cosmetic. I can say I love visiting my Dentise and I look forward for my cleaning appointments and looove hearing that my teeth are in the best shape ever… also I love the free parking-the juice fridge- their online booking and confirmation system- the friendly staff- the experience dental assistants- the great prices- the clean & warm office and operating rooms and most importantly the fact that I know I’m being worked by the top and best dentist ever ” Dr Talai”… oh god I can’t stop writing^_^ oh and my goodie bag that I get after every visit.

Thank you Dr. Talaie! Entire staff is professional, courteous and polite. I highly recommend this dental office. I brought my father in for a lower denture and Dr. Talaie took the needed time to get this denture done right. My father is happy and has the confidence to smile again and enjoy a life that having teeth can bring. Century Smile was recommended to me by a trusted family member and I’m grateful for that recommendation. Thank you Century Smile! God bless you all.

Okay the short version: Extremely sweet, helpful staff. Dr. Talaie is really nice and funny and thorough. They have payment options and they really seem to want to help. They take most insurances and they are quick to see you. Waiting room has water, juice boxes and coffee. But I was only waiting for a few seconds really. I really like this dentist and I will be staying with her. Now the long version: I haven’t been to the dentist in a while, and I will be honest: I am not the best at taking care of my teeth. I brush twice a day and I floss often, but I don’t get check ups as I should. I drink too many acidic things and I neglected recommendations back in my teens and now I am paying for it. Despite all that, Dr. Talaie was really kind about the problems I have. She showed me exactly where things were on my xrays and photos. Sadly, I need a lot of work, but I don’t feel like it was any kind of scam to get me to pay more. She showed me EXACTLY where the problems were and gave me several different treatment options at different prices. She also had advice on how I can get the most out of my insurance, and how this will be the easiest on my pocket book. I have heard the same thing from previous dentists, so I know I should have handled these things before. I am not a fan of dentists, but this was actually a pleasant experience. No one likes to hear that they have stuff to work on, especially since all dental work in the USA is pricey, but this was the first time I went to the dentist and I was not only treated like a person, I actually had a very nice experience. I’d recommend this practice to anyone. As one last note: I want to add that Gabby at the front desk was INCREDIBLY nice and helpful. She was a sweetheart and a half and REALLY REALLY kind about explaining things to me in normal terms.

Wow,totally shocked to read the previous reviews of Dr Talaies office staff and of herself.  I have lived in the LA area for 15 years and have always trusted friends and co-workers advice when seeking new services (whether its for childcare, dry cleaning, a good mexican restuarant or dentist).  I have never been let down. I live in the South Bay, however, spoke with several people who presently go or have gone to Century Smile in the past.  The sheer fact that they drive as far as redondo beach to go to her Century City office is already a testament to her great services. The office is beautifully decorated with an assortment of beverages to choose from.  You will barely have time to enjoy a drink because the wait time is minimal.  I am a physical therapist and am used to hearing patients complain of LONG wait times at  drs offices. Every member of Dr. Talaies staff was professional, from their dress, to the knowledge of the dental procedures as well as billing/insurance questions. I had never had a more extensive x-ray panel done which was followed by a very thorough explanation by the doctor.  I was able to ask my questions and get them answered as well.  Together we set up a plan for the work I needed as well as in the order of priority it needed to be completed in. I have 4 young children who presently have no cavities. =) Presently their insurance sends us to another dentist. However, I know in the future should they be needing additional services than routine xrays or cleaning, I will NOT hesitate to take them to Dr. Talaies office! Sincerely, Erica F, MS,MPT

The staff are extremely friendly and helpful. I had been always scared of dentist visits. This has changed since I visited this place. I have been a regular for a year and have all my long-postponed issues fixed. Everything looks clean. The environment is relaxing. Both the dentist (Dr. Talaie) and the hygienist (Javior) are nice and skillful. I am comfortable with working with them and their assistants. I am very glad that the dentist Dr. Talaie recommended the night guard to me. I didn’t like that idea (and price) at the beginning but finnally agreed to try it after putting my partial crown, which became sensitive due my my grinding at night. It is the best thing ever! I can’t believe how well and relaxing I am able to sleep now. I will wake up in the middle of the night if I forget to put it on. I am happy with my laser treatment, recommended by Javior. I did that a year ago while I had sever tooth bleeding issue. I did have to have cleaning done every three months, but I don’t have any bleeding now (very mild toward the end of 3-month period). It was over my budget with my HMO insurance at that time but I am glad about the result. I believe in investment in health. That goes a long way. The Receptionists (Micheal in 2016 and Gabbie in 2015) are very patient in explaining the details of insurance/claim/ procedure/payment. All in all, very good experience. I will recommend this place to my friends.

My sister recommended Dr. Talaie. I am very happy she did. I haven’t been to a dentist in years. Dr. Talaie and staff made me feel very comfortable and confident I was in good hands. Dr. Talaie is so nice and extremely smart. I need a lot of work done and feel I have chosen the right Dentist to get the work done. The staff are also very helpful and friendly. Someone cancelled a deep cleaning appointment and they called me to ask if I wanted to take it. The office is also very updated and super clean. Parking is very easy.

After I read all the negative reviews I fell into a perplexed state and asked myself “Could there be another Century Smile in Culver City with another dentist by the name of Dr. Talaie? I just couldn’t believe how much my experience differed from that of the other Yelpers. I entered Century Smile’s office and was greeted with utter hospitality, after I checked in I was offered the choices of a complimentary juice box, a cup of tea, a cup of coffee and/or a bottle of water. I was also offered the option of using the office’s lap top to surf the net. After a few minutes I was called in for my appointment, being that I was there a few minutes early, and greeted by Dr. Talaie. I was flabbergasted by what was said about Dr. Talaie by the other Yelpers when I found her to have a very nurturing and caring quality about her. I was nervous before my dental procedure began, as it had six years since I had last had dental work done, I communicated my anxiousness to her and she was quick to reassure me that every thing was going to be alright and proceeded to do her job with the gentleness of a mother’s touch. In conclusion to my review, my experience at Century Smile was by far the best experience I’ve ever had at any dental office.I’ve recommended Century Smile to all of my friends and family.
