This is not my first review for Dr. Hand. He is the best! I wanted a current review as every time I see him I come way confident in my smile.  He has taken care of my family with grace and TALENT. To Dr. Hand, dentistry is a love and an Art. I trust him completely. He keeps expanding his knowledge of the finer points and is up on the latest technologies. Together with his love of his work and of people…well, what can I say?
I’m one lucky patient.

AWESOME!!!  I was so impressed by Dr. Hand’s professionalism and ability to make me feel at ease.  It had been 3 years since my last dental exam (bad experience w/ another dentist) and I was really nervous about the work I would need to have done.  I was relieved that the exam, cleaning, and cavity I had filled were all a pain-free experience.  I appreciated Dr. Hand’s knowledge and his gentle nature.  He also didn’t make me feel like a horrible person for not having had a recent dental visit.  Dr. Hand has high integrity and amazing skill – two things I find extremely important.  I would recommend him to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Five stars barely begin to describe the combination of gratitude and good fortune that being a patient of Dr. Hand can generate.  Any competent dentist can take care of teeth.  Dr. Hand also cares for the whole person, and he demonstrates it in his administration of anesthetic, his continuing research on new techniques and in the admiration his staff shows for him.   Dr. Hand leads by example.  May his lessons spread far and wide.

5/22/19:I have been a long-time patient of Dr. Hand (Chuck) and have always found him to not only be a top-notch dentist, but a person who has always displayed the upmost courtesy and shows exceptional kindness, concern about your teeth, and displays integrity with what he recommends. These qualities are truly appreciated. When it comes to having a filling or crown needed, he first explains what is needed and why and how it will be done. He makes sure that the way he gives the shot to numb the area is barely felt and explains the reason why. Such a relief not having to be concerned that the shot would hurt. I have personally received a follow-up call from him a day or two after the work was done to make sure that everything was alright and to answer any questions that I might have. He is the best, and I am grateful to have him as my dentist! Douglas S.

There is nothing bad to say about Dr. Hand and the staff that work at his office. The care and detail to the health of your teeth is no less than expert, Huey who works the front desk is organized and kind. Parking is a breeze and Dr. Hand is so great. A billion stars!

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


Dr. Hand loves teeth… I’m not kidding, he gets SO excited talking about anything to do with teeth/gums/oral health. This is his passion. He was recommended to me by my neighbor who had seen Dr. Hand since he was a child. I’ve been going to him regularly for six years now and I could not be happier. The only thing I DON’T like is that he’s on the other side of town (Westwood/Brentwood area)… but it’s totally worth making the drive and parking is super easy. Just recently my dental insurance company refused to pay for a crown Dr. Hand made for me — something about it being too close to the time that tooth had been previously repaired. At any rate Dr. Hand was very upset about this — more upset than I was! And he wrote letters and emails to the insurance company — totally going to bat for me without me even asking. Cut to last night — two months after the fact — Dr. Hand calls me saying that he convinced them to pay and he was sending me a check! Oh my lord, he is THE BEST. Thank you Dr. Hand and staff!

Who wakes up in the morning and says, “YAY! I have a dentist appointment today!”? I do. Why?? Because I have the best dentist on the planet and his name is Dr. Hand. Dr. Hand is not only talented, passionate, gentle, caring, and sensitive, but he is also talented, passionate, gentle, caring, and sensitive. He takes so much pride and applies so much care in his work. He loves his profession and it manifests itself in how he lights up when you ask him questions about what’s going on during an appointment. He strives for perfection in not only his skills as a dentist, but for your comfort as a patient. You’ll never leave his office without feeling that you were given his utmost attention. He always calls the day after an appointment to check and make sure that you’re feeling ok or if you have any questions. He truly cares. I’m also fond of the rest of his staff, Huey, Myra and Adriana. They are all wonderful. If you ever have any questions about scheduling or care for certain procedures, you can rely on Huey. She has been working with Dr. Hand for years and understands the ins and outs of dentistry. Myra is a great hygienist who is always gentle and thorough. Lastly, Adriana has a great synergy working with Dr. Hand on visits that require a longer appointment. Dr. Hand is my dentist for life. He makes me want to go get cavities just so I can see him on a regular basis. 😉

Jamie H. from Tarzana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Hand and his staff are the best! Huey, his front office manager, is wonderful. His hygienist is soft-handed and very thorough. I’m not a very relaxed dental patient but the dentist and his staff are truly reassuring and patient. I would highly recommend this office!

Nina C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


A friend referred me to Dr. Hand and now I know why. I wish I could rate him with a 6th star. Dr. Hand is the most informative, honest and caring dentist I have ever been to. Not only does he do a thorough examination, he educates you at the same time. And did you know that not all cavities have to be filled? Oh, and I’ve never had a dentist do an additional thorough mouth exam checking for any abnormalities other than my teeth/gums until I met Dr. Hand. He also referred me to an excellent oral surgeon to get my all 4 of my wisdom teeth removed. Dr. Hand even called the oral surgeon prior to my surgery to discuss what he found in my original exam. Who does that?? smart + honest + caring = my permanent dentist

I had a wonderful dentist for 20 years that was on Montana Avenue and he retired. OMG! (I thought) It’s so hard to find a dentist you are totally comfortable going to and extremely hard in Los Angeles. But I was referred to Dr. Hand and I am happy to say that he is the best dentist I have ever been to in my 50 years of on and off dental problems. I call him Happy Hands because he has the best and most caring approach to dentistry! He really loves the profession he has chosen. He explains things very thoroughly and even more amazing, he calls you after your appointment to see how you are feeling! In LA, that’s incredible. His receptionist and dental hygienist are wonderful and as upbeat as Dr. Hand. He’s the best, so if you are in search of a dentist you will keep until HE retires, he’s your man.

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


most mind-blowing great dentist in the world. really. thought my last dentist was the best. even traveled hours to see him. but after meeting Dr Hand I realized there was no comparison. he treats everyone he sees like his own children. in the 5 or so years I’ve been going to him I’ve never had anything but perfect teeth. and the cleanings are the most thorough ever, no matter how long it takes they clean your teeth till they are perfect.

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


I was referred to Dr Charles Hand by a friend, and since then, I lost my fear of going to the dentist. Dr Hand’s caring, gentle manners of approach include explaining involved aspects and reasons concerning his advanced solutions for remedying his clients’ dental matters. Dr Hand consistently up-grades his professional practice in accord with high standard technological advancements regarding his dual fields of general and cosmetic dentistry. Dr. Hand’s skillful artistic visual-perception combined with perfectionist achievement modes accord with his character, reflecting a natural artistic aptitude. These qualities extend to his visual aesthetics past-times such as photography/ visual-compositioning, film-making and more; on par with professional quality standards. In my experience, it’s rare to encounter a sincere, caring, compassionate and talented dentist whom people can confide trust in like Dr Hand. His warm, fun-spirited and enlivening personality in compliment to his gentle, perfectionist, caring professional manners incite anticipating dental appointments. Dr Hand’s diverse subject matter knowledge and interests can fascinate as well as enlighten every personality in a variety of conversational topics which infuse a cordial ambiance during dental procedures. I’m grateful for knowing Dr Hand and for his expert knowledge, professional skill and gentle manners throughout all of his dental procedures.

I have known Dr. Hand for over 20 years. He is kind and gentle, up to date with the latest dental treatments and materials. He has an amazing eye for esthetics creating beautiful and functional smiles. Best of all he is honest and very passionate about giving his patients the best comprehensive care.

Steve T. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you hate going to the dentist, then you’ll LOVE going to Dr. Hand. I’ve been his patient for about 20 years and…..believe it or not….I actually look forward to making an appointment. Coolest dental nerd you’ll ever meet with a greatest of bedside manners. His entire staff is fantastic and getting work done is so easy and painless that I have trouble not falling asleep in the chair. I’ve had everything done – cleanings, fillings, a bridge, you name it. Every time it’s a piece of cake and Dr. Hand really makes you feel like you’re part of the process, not just a patient. He’s a true artist who won’t settle for anything less than perfection, too. Love this man!

David F. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hand is simply the best. He clearly loves what he does and it shows… I’ve had the occasion for a lot of dental work over the last 13 years that I’ve been seeing Dr. Hand, and he makes it a pleasure to go to the dentist.

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


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hand for 8+ years now. He has such a broad range of skill and talent. He understands all aspects of dentistry. His approach has always been to show you what’s going on, draw, give examples, and discuss pros/cons. He’s really pragmatic. He also has a wide range of specialist referrals that he can send you to. The labs he chooses are great. His assistants are really talented as well. Dr. Hand is such a friendly guy – a delight to visit. I always leave there feeling better. Huey works the phones / scheduling and definitely adds to the experience. She runs the show. My one complaint is that their phone line blocks caller-id when they call you. If you ask Huey nicely, she’ll unblock just for you. 🙂

Chip B. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


I called Dr. Hand today because my son moved to West LA and is looking for a good dentist.  I feel very comfortable referring my son after speaking with him.  He took the time to explain the procedures he does for his patients, and all he does to help them keep healthy teeth without unnecessary dental procedures. He seems to really care about his patients as well.

Matt R. from Hidden Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Hand for over 25 years. I used to fear the dentist becasue I can’t stand sharp pains but he has an incredible touch and technique and now I don’t mind going at all. Even better than the lack of pain is Dr. Hand’s bedside manner. He is incredibly nice and seems genuinely interested in what is going on with my work and family. He and his staff are always very warm. I have referred several friends and family members to him over the years and every one I have referred speaks glowingly of him and can’t thank me enough for the referral.

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


After moving to Los Angeles from New York I needed a new dentist. I was referred to Dr. Hand. Dr. Hand is very nice and very professional. He is really passionate about dentistry. I am extremely sensitive to tooth pain and he triple checks to make sure I am completely numb before he starts drilling. You can tell everyone enjoys what they do at the office. His dental assistant and receptionist are equally as friendly and they are always smiling.
