I am not fond of any medical personal, doctors or other.  But Dr Comfort is a very nice and competent dentist.  I have spent many hours at his office having multiple work done.  He and his assistants are always concerned with my comfort, and strive hard to make sure I am okay.  If I was new to town, I would be very grateful to be recomended to him.

Hi, I am not from Mammoth but was passing through, chipped a tooth while eating at Slocums (great food), and visited two dentists in town to try and get an appointment the same day it happened.  The first office was a Dr. Schrager who didn’t seem to care about getting me in even though he didn’t appear to be busy (I can see why).  The second office was a Dr. Comfort.  Oh, my goodness.  I love this dentist.  I wish I lived near Mammoth so I could send my whole family.  They were kind, caring and compassionate and even helped me fit the treatment into my budget.  Dr. Comfort even gave me a call that evening to check up on me.  Wow.  I can’t say enough about these guys.

This place is the most compassionate dentist office I’ve ever been to. I’ve had a lot of dental trauma in the past with other dentists, since a lot of times I don’t numb correctly, and they made me feel safe and at ease. Dr. Comfort does phenomenal work! He is very knowledgeable and will take time to sit with you and give great information. Liz was with me through all my work I had done (which was A LOT), and she was absolutely outstanding. She took such good care of me. The whole staff is just amazing! Thank you guys for all you do! ♥️

After researching the local dentists in Mammoth, I decided to see Dr. Comfort based on his qualifications and broad spectrum of services he offers. I was impressed with how professional the Dr. and his office were from the moment I called the office. I scheduled a teeth cleaning/exam and was very happy with my hygienist, Holli and how thorough my exam was with Dr. Comfort. I had one small cavity which I scheduled to have fixed the following week and it went very well. No pain, not even with the shot! I am now taking my whole family to Dr. Comfort and am very confident that he will take good care of us all! I highly recommend Dr. Comfort if you are looking for a new dentist or wanting to switch from another dentist in Mammoth!

I must say that for the 1st time I’m impressed by Dr. Comfort. He was so knowledgeable about my needs and efficient in his assessment. I have never been comfortable in the dentist chair and he was very professional but more importantly to me, efficient and I felt that this was the right place to be to have my procedures done 1 time, done right. Highly suggest Dr. Comfort to anyone who wants it done correctly the first time!

We were with my family in Mammoth, Ca  last week and had a blast . The weather is perfect , the time we were spending was flawless until my grandpa out of the blue got a strong  toothache . We called Dr Christopher Comfort  after 6pm and he called us back himself  and took my grandfather in and toothache of the tooth issue. Thanks God we have doctors like this , to accommodate people even after hours and do a great job. Anybody who will go to Mammoth visiting i will tell to keep his name in mind just in case 🙂  Thanks

S. M. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient for some time now of Dr. Comfort’s and I couldn’t be more pleased with him, his staff and his dentistry. It’s funny when I read through the other reviews because most all the negative ones are either referring to something from years ago or the majority of them are from people that hadn’t been to the dentist in years and are upset that Dr. Comfort found  several cavities! Really? Don’t shoot the messenger, brush your teeth! Anyway, I think it was a little tough in the beginning for Dr. Comfort to be a newcomer in the community, it’s not exactly easy to get accepted by the people in this small town, I know, I was a newcomer here once too and it’s tough! I think that Dr. Comfort is one of the most experienced and educated Dentist’s this town has ever had, especially when it comes to cosmetic dentistry, and the locals should be lucky to have him. The other dentists here don’t come close to the level of expertise that Dr. Comfort has.His staff is always there to help too, especially Liz in the front, Laura who is Dr. Comfort’s assistant and Ivonne, his hygienist.  I recommend that if you’re looking for a dentist in Mammoth that you make up your own mind, I’m sure you’ll end up as happy as my family is with Dr. Comfort’s office. (P.S. I have a small child that LOVES to see Dr. Comfort)

My hygienist was knowledgeable, friendly, and had an excellent chairside manner. There was a very friendly vibe in the office and everyone I encountered had a very positive attitude. A great group of people who put the patient first.

A family friend referred Dr. Comfort and he instantly became my favorite dentist. Him and his staff are very nice and because no one likes going to the dentist, you’d love to know he’s very fast. I didn’t have insurance at the time but he gave me a great cash price.

James D. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


Jim Dessert This guy changed my life. For over 20 years I would suffer from severe sinus infection 2 or 3 times a year. I always thought that it had a connection to my teeth, but no doctor or dentist could figure it out. On a few of these infections I would end up at the hospital with an IV of a powerful antibiotic for several hours. On my first visit with Dr. Comfort I was so immediately impressed by him that I asked him to make my mouth right, basically cosmetics. When he got into the work, he not only made my teeth look good, he also discovered that I needed 7 root canals. The guy knows how to read an ex ray. He found what others could not. That was 2 years ago, and I haven’t had a sinus infection since, and believe it or not my overall health has improved. Even my cholesterol dropped 20 points, and my heart doctor from Reno says that what Dr. Comfort did is probably why. Dr. Chris Comfort is the best.

Veronica P. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Comfort and his staff are absolutly wonderful! The service is friendly and very personal. I went in after years of not seeing a dentist and of course I had cavitties and needed multiple things done and Dr. Comfort’s staff were compassionate and helped me along. Appointments are easy to make and the cleanings are great! Can’t wait to go back for more!

Megan S. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not usually one to write a review, but I felt the need to write one about Dr. Comfort  and his office after my last dental visit. The whole experience was very pleasant which is not always the case when you have to go to the dentist. I had a teeth cleaning appointment with Heidi who was very informative and gave me some good tips on flossing that have made it easier for me to pick up the habit. Then Dr. Comfort came in and did an exam. I found him to be quite personable and funny, I didn’t feel any pressure to have a lot of dental work done, but he did let me know about some areas of concern that he will keep an eye on and check the next time I was in. All in all, the staff was friendly, the office was efficient and I felt like Dr. Comfort likes what he does and knows what he’s doing. I highly recommend him and his office for your dental needs.

Cleland H. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a very good experience with Dr.Comfort. I went in for a way overdue cleaning. As a new patient, I did have x-rays taken. Gilann cleaned my teeth, and made me feel so comfortable that I inquired about future procedures I have been putting off…getting my old silver-colored fillings removed, because they were cracking my teeth. Since the price was reasonable, I went ahead and scheduled an appointment for the next day to have 4 fillings replaced. Dr.Comfort was super nice and was humming while he worked, which makes me think he likes what he does. Claudia assisted and made sure I was comfortable. Sure, there were times I had saliva built up or there would be some facial discomfort, but nothing I haven’t experienced with getting other dental work. Just part of going to the dentist. Dr.Comfort has a nice touch and personality, and I’m glad he’s my new dentist.
I liked my smile going in. Now I love it.

Jim K. from Truckee, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Comfort is world class. Moreover, he is cutting edge when it comes to dental technology. His staff is also first rate. Amber helped me through a complex insurance situation in a very courteous and professional manner. A very professional and pleasant experience highlighted my visits.

Stephanie L. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Comfort is a one of a kind dentist, so knowledgeable with the trade and gentle to the touch. His office is soothing (go in Thursday’s to enjoy the island music of Hawaii). To me it’s important for a dentist to give options based on affordability, budget and of course, the latest technology. I recently went to Dr. comfort to use his services for Invisiline. He is affordable and extremely knowledgeable about the service of orthodontia.  When was the last time your doctor really talked to you and listened to your concerns about procedures?  Dr. comfort spends time with each patient to really understand what’s needed and what would work best for budget, aesthetics and need. His office is easy to make an appointment and his hours are good for the working Individual. His staff is friendly and his name says it all. Update: office is still one of a kind, ambiance is great and chose to do some cosmetic options to whiten and brighten my smile. Thank for a fantastic experience.

My experience with Dr. Comfort and his staff was awesome! They are a very compassionate crew and I will be coming back in the future for my dental needs with Dr. Comfort for years to come. Thank you!!

Al D. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to several dentists over my half century of life.  I have some really bad experiences that always makes me feel really uncomfortable when even getting a cleaning.  I went to Doc 3 years ago for the first time.  Wow, great experience.  Why?  He understands how he is perceived and tries to put you at ease right away.  He explains in detail what he is going to do.  Lets you know if something is going to be painful or uncomfortable.  The Novocaine shots, are barley noticeable.  Unlike past experiences.  The other great thing, he work fast and gets you out of there faster than I have ever experienced.  That you Doc!  Highly recommend for kids as well. He did work on my granddaughter and was terrific.

Dr. comfort is the man! They actually care about their patients. phone calls to follow up-never had a dentist do that before. The staff is amazing and knowledgeable! If you live in Mammoth lakes this is the guy for you

Elizabeth G. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am ready for the next needle, thanks to your gentle touch. This dental office is terrific! Dr. Comfort was understanding with my dentophobia. He is very professional, he takes the time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice. I personally went in for an extraction. which was absolutely painless and for which I am very grateful.
-My kids are now Invisalign patients with Dr. Comfort I highly recommend Dr. and his staff for kids and adults. My gratitude for Dr. Comfort and his staff goes beyond the stars!
When you find the best, you keep it! Sincerely, EG

Chris is a very caring dentist. And, the fact that he is accredited with the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, speaks volumes. I know what it takes to get your accreditation with the AACD because I am a dentist and I’ve been through the rigours of being tested by the AACD. It’s not an easy thing to attain and I know many dentists who have failed. If you have any cosmetic dental desires, Dr. Comfort is your go to guy!

William P. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went in for a cleaning today. The hygienist was professional and knowledgeable. Recommended I get a sonic toothbrush and waterpik to provide better dental care for myself. (I tend not floss as much as I should and still have 2 of my wisdom teeth which I find difficult to get at with a regular brush). As for Dr. Comfort. I find him to very personable/professional. I hate going to the dentist, but he always seems to put me at ease. Explains what he’s going to do and is very thorough. I’ve read the poor reviews from other folks, but have never experienced any of the negative comments? I’ve had several procedures. (3 crowns, 2 were repairs because of previous poor work from another dentist, 2 fillings and a root canal). Those procedures were expensive, but what dental procedures aren’t? I never had any problems making appointments and the office staff and dental assistants are very friendly.

I love, love, love this doctor. I’ve been coming to Dr. Comfort for almost 3 years now and the service is consistently great. He is honest and NOT greedy. His stuff is always warm and ready to help. I am lucky to have found him.

Wilbur C. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had suffer over some dental issues for last 2 years.I was getting distraught for my toothache.That was to a great degree agonizing. I was not ready to drink occasion the chilly water.Then I chose to go to “Christopher J Comfort” , He advices me a few hints and recommended me with extraordinary care. Inside 1 week, the terrible torment simply gone! I really appreciate his hospitalization.

Ryan L. from Malibu, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a new patient who was expecting nothing from a mountain side doctor, I must say that for the 1st time I’m impressed by a Dentist, he has since become my full time dentist and worth the effort to go up and see him. He is actually a fully accredited Dental specialist from San Diego county. I needed a few big jobs including a Root Canal, and a Bridge which I had put off for years. Dr. Comfort was so knowledgable about my needs and efficient in his assessment. After his in house exam and ex rays that I was comfortable with him continuing my needed procedures. I have never been comfortable in the dentist chair and he was very professional but more importantly to me, efficient and I felt that this was the right place to be to have my procedures done 1 time, done right. Highly suggest Dr. Comfort to anyone who wants it done correctly the first time! Great office, Hi-tech, enjoyayable as a dentist visit can be.

Tera W. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just moved to Mammoth and the day before I left to come up here I had two crowns and two veneers put in my top front teeth. I knew the next day when I arrived in Mammoth my front right tooth was too long as it was scraping my bottom teeth when I talked, and that my bite needed adjustment. I was very lucky to find Dr. Comfort here in town who is a cosmetic dentist, which makes him experienced in working with crowns and veneers. At my appointment, he shortened my right front  tooth, scraped off leftover cement, and adjusted my bite. He also included another visit for adjustments in with my $65 fee. Two and a half weeks later I felt I needed the corner of my right front tooth adjusted and cornered off as it was scraping my bottom teeth when I ate. I was reluctant to have a new dentist adjust my front top tooth more, along with the one next to it, because these teeth are very important to ones smile and face. I thought of Dr. Comfort and I felt that after learning of all his experience, having met him, and after the last visit that I could trust him. As I sat in his chair I gave him my full and complete trust, had confidence in him, and let him work his magic. He fixed exactly what I wanted and needed and he understood and acknowledged all of my complaints beforehand. I walked away looking beautiful thanks to Dr. Comfort. I will always trust Dr. Comfort for all my dentistry needs in the future. He is a fantastic and professional dentist

I have been to Dr. Comfort for a few routine check ups and for a root canal. The staff and Dr. Comfort have always been professional and informative. I have never had to wait for very long in the waiting room (unless I was late for an appointment). The office is basic, but clean and organized. The Doctor is very knowledgeable and does excellent work, focused on patient comfort and pain management. There are some negative reviews of Dr. Comfort concerning his sales approach. I did not experience this. I think that he is just interested in patient’s dental health and cosmetic needs. I would highly recommend Dr. Comfort and plan to visit again for my next cleaning.

Root canal went very smooth and procedure was not very painful. Pre-op video was good to prepare me for what was going to happen, especially that the process could take two visits. Good temporary cap and precautionary instructions allowed me to still make a three day backpacking trip between visits with minimal discomfort and the final cap installation went well. Overall, pleased as can be considering I typically don’t care for going to the dentist. Staff was very pleasant and friendly!

5 star and very personable. Chris as he likes to be called, is great and very nice. His staff is excellent and even nicer than Chris. I was on vacation and going into the higher altitude cause pressure on my tooth which was most likely already going bad to get worse. To the point of an ER visit because nothing was open on a sunday evening. So monday morning call they got me right in and he took care of me within a few hours from start to finish. I wouldnt go anywhere else. Call them first. Also after the fact he did say to call him after hours and he would have helped me….now I know. Thank you again.

Allison C. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was a little nervous when I heard that my old dentist retired and that a new dentist bought his practice. I went in for my six month cleaning and exam and I was very impressed. The hygienist was on time, very thorough and friendly. I was given tons of information about my current oral health, areas where I can improve and what to avoid. I requested that I wait until the following visit to take check up xrays and I didn’t feel pressure to take them (like I did with the last dentist). I met the new doctor and found him to be very approachable and funny. I felt very comfortable and I am very pleased with my new Dentist. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Comfort and his staff to all my friends.

Sara P. from Mammoth Lakes, CA (Source: Yelp)


Never in my life would I imagine myself walking out of a dentist’s office joking about having another tooth pulled the next day because “it really wasn’t that bad!” To be honest though, it really wasn’t that bad! Liz and Amber were incredibly comforting and reassuring, letting me know exactly what was going to happen each step of the way through my  x-ray and exam as well as the extraction. My mouth is a bit small and narrow so it was a pain trying to get a good X-ray but Liz was so patient and kind through the whole thing.  During the extraction, there’s a tv to distract you, I had the privilege of watching an old Michael Landon western! I had my music going too and I’M NOT EVEN KIDDING… I couldn’t make it through the first song before Dr. Comfort had that nasty wisdom tooth out! This man knows what he’s doing! He was so quick and calm, I couldn’t believe it  was all over that fast. Between the calming atmosphere in the front, the amazing staff, and Dr. Comfort providing incredible work in a kind and professional manner, I am 10/10 recommending and returning!

Had a great experience with Dr Comfort and his team very professional had amazing equipment and even a TV on the ceiling to watch while you have work done very friendly clean space will definitely go back

Love Dr. Comfort and his staff! I’ve been taking my family to his office for a couple of years now and we’ve always had good experiences with Dr. Comfort and the office. I appreciate his caring attitude, especially with my teenagers, glad he’s in Mammoth!
