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

Melissa H. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ho is very adept at making you feel at ease from the moment you sit in her chair. That’s important, but more importantly is that she apparently knows what she’s doing. I’ve seen her for a variety of dental procedures and they always seem to come out fine, unlike some of the horror stories I’ve heard about other dentists. She’s very knowledgeable about her profession, well read & traveled. Therefor, she’s never short on interesting stories as she’s working. I give her an A+ and highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Sheldon K. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


We met Dr. Claire Ho ten years ago . We have stayed patients of Dr. Ho even though we now live 100 miles West of her office. The quality of professional care is far above other Dental offices we have visited. There has never been any unnecessary services performed and Dr. Ho takes the time to explain the patients treatment plan with alternatives. The office staff have always been professional, polite and helpful. Dr. Claire Ho is concerned with the health of each patient and is a doctor you can trust with your family’s dental care. We would recommend Dr. Claire Ho to everyone.

Aaron J. from Emeryville, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who says you can’t have a good time at a dental appointment? I’ve only had one other dentist growing up. After moving to LA I finally scheduled a dental appointment with Dr. Ho and man did she make my last dentist look like amateur hour. She took her time with everything–cleaning very thoroughly, teaching me about what exactly she’s doing, and really getting to know me as a person and not just as a patient. During the education process, I also learned that my previous dentist was lying and cheating me of money by performing basic cleaning services and calling them something else. It is so refreshing to have a dentist who is personable, transparent, honest, and just genuinely kind and looking out for you. Let’s not forget her assistants Teresa and Cathy. My first interaction with the office was when I called in to find out whether or not if my insurance is covered at the location. Teresa was super proactive and kind and called in to my insurance to double check for me and called me back within the hour to explain my overall coverage and book an appointment. Cathy, on the other hand, took my X-Rays. She was a perfectionist when it comes to her work and did a wonderful job while keeping everything lighthearted with a friendly and laugh out loud conversation. From picking up the phone and calling to leaving my appointment, my experience was 10/10 every step of the way. I can’t actually believe I’d ever say I look forward to going back in 6 months for my next cleaning!

David T. from Pacifica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I moved here about 6 months ago and this is the first dentist I’ve gone to here. I think Claire is the best dentist I’ve been to. I don’t think I’ve ever had a real proper cleaning of my teeth. Every place I’ve been to cleaned my teeth for like 20 minutes and that’s it. She took her time and cleaned every part of every tooth. She explained everything about dental hygiene and teeth in general while she was cleaning my teeth I felt smarter when I left there haha. Everyone is super friendly that works  there I felt very comfortable right when I walked in I highly recommend this place!

Sue H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Claire Ho is the kindest, most honest and skillful dentist I have ever seen (and I’ve seen plenty).  I often felt like I was helping other dentists buy a second home or yacht.  Dr. Ho is totally ethical and would never do unnecessary work.  She even gave me the option today of not doing a filling for a tooth that had lost the back enamel (although I chose to have it done).  I have seen her for years and cannot recommend her highly enough.

Destry S. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


My dad was a dentist and made me feel very comfortable all my life until he retired a few years back and I’ve had to find alternatives. I liked my NYC dentist quite a bit, and when I moved recently to the Marina, and had a crown chip off, I was worried about who to see. Dr. Ho squeezed me in since I was so worried about my tooth, then turned out to be a really really great dentist! Totally down to earth, caring, sincere, and helped me immensely. Also, her staff that I met were amazingly helpful – Angie, Kathy and Cynthia. Thanks to you all for a terrific experience, I feel like I’m in good hands.

Meital N. from Playa Del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ho’s devotion to patients is praise worthy, to state the least. My father visited from overseas and had a loose crown. When I called her office, late in the afternoon, she understood the situation I was in and instructed her staff to schedule my dad for the last appointment that day. As a former patient who hasn’t been treated for a couple of years, I was struck and touched by her kindness. In a heartbeat, she saw and treated him, accepting overseas insurance and allowing him to enjoy the rest of his visit. I could not be more greatful for her professional ways and genuine care.

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


LOVE Dr. Ho.  I have been going to her for 3 years now and she’s the best.  Everyone in the office is very nice, welcoming and friendly, putting you at ease and comfort.  Dr. Ho is personally involved in all procedures and completely inspires confidence.  She totally “saved” me from the clutches of an unscrupulous hack of a dentist that I should have yelped before patronizing (he has 1 star and deservedly so).  Helped to put my mouth back to great health. I don’t mind the office move either.  It is worth driving the extra mile.  Finding a dentist you trust is worth her weight in gold.   Dr. Ho is great.  Open wide with confidence.

Brent B. from Marina Del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Are you tired of the fast-food, conveyor belt plaque removal factories that are most dentist offices these days?  Are you tired of languishing in a fluorescent lit dungeon, reading a Time magazine from 1986, for hours on end while waiting for your “appointment”?  Are you tired of playing Russian roulette with which dentist the Mothership will assign to you every time you visit?  Do you want to be treated as a person instead of that annoying object the Office Manager must get through in order to obtain your insurance card for those billable procedures? If you answered yes to any of the above, then Dr. Ho is the dentist for you.  Imagine a dentist that values your time as much as hers, that doesn’t double book appointments, that does your cleaning personally and that surrounds herself with a friendly, efficient office staff. Well, stop imagining and go see Dr. Ho.  I relied on Yelp to find a new dentist and am delighted to have found this one.  It does my cynical heart good to know there are still healthcare providers that practice their craft with pride, skill and genuine care for their patients.   Dr. Ho is a fantastic dentist,  and I cannot recommend her highly enough

Leslie W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I think I went to see Claire Ho about 4 times in less than 2 months. Was it because I needed a lot of work on my teeth or because I want to be her friend and the only way was to keep making appointments…? But really, Dr. Ho is super nice and totally trustworthy. I’ve had some really bad experiences with dentists not being trusthworthy and so lately I’ve had a string of 3-4 dentists. But look no further, I’ve found Claire Ho. She’s not trying to sell you on anything, just gives you an honest opinion on your teeth. I was confused about some of the charges regarding my insurance and she worked with me to figure out exactly where it was coming from and I learned a thing or two about my dental coverage. Thanks! Her staff is really awesome too. Kathy is so nice and friendly, you’ll think you’re just chatting it up with a friend. Her office isn’t open on Fridays but she takes appointments until 7 on Tuesdays, which is convenient for me. Be sure to park in the Ralphs lot across the street and walk over.

Meg B. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


Ms. Claire Ho is my dentist for life. I’m pretty sure that she’s the most thorough, friendliest dentist ever to exist, not to mention her awesome hygienist, who actually invited me over for Thanksgiving Dinner with her family to “see how it’s done”. I was blown away. It’s now been 2 years since I’ve been to visit Dr. Ho, but not for not wanting to! Waiting for my insurance problems to finally go away is torture, because I’d very much like to get an appointment, but I’m not letting anyone but Claire touch me! I’ve sent three or four other people there and they rave about her as much as I do. Plus, every recommendation I’ve given her, I end up getting a thank you card in the mail with some free movie tickets. Win-win situation, unless now, 2 years later, she’s so popular I can’t even get in!!!!!!

Nas N. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best Dentist I have ever had. There is a Dentist 1/2 mile from my house and Id rather travel the 8 miles to Dr. Ho’s. Dr. Ho and her team are so sweet and thorough. You can tell that she really cares about her patients! Dr. Ho and Kathy were very gentle and patient while helping me get through my first cavity filling, which ended up being painless! The entire team works hard and I tell everyone I know that is looking for a Dentist to come to Dr. Ho!

Fred S. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going in for regular check ups and cleaning for a few years now. Just went to her new location which is further for me but I don’t mind because she’s great! Professional, down to earth, genuine, nice. Some Doctors have a tendency to oversell you on procedures to make more money…not her. She’s super honest and laid back when it comes to that. Overall, great experience every time!

Douglas E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am not one of her patients, but she squeezed me in on an hour’s notice when I had an emergency while visiting LA.  Very pleasant and informative.  Reasonable fee.  Assessed my problem and quickly found me a nearby oral surgeon who would also take me right away.  Within 3 hours of walking in to her office, I was walking out of the surgeon’s with my problem fixed.

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


I grew up with bad experiences with rough dentists. I only went every few years because it was so unpleasant to me. My teeth were unhealthy even after deep cleanings. My first visit to Dr. Ho several years ago, she spent two hours on a normal cleaning with me. She explained to me that I don’t qualify for deep cleanings, and I realized that my prior dentists only did it for more money. There are so many reasons why I am so grateful for Dr. Ho. She is the perfect dentist: smart, funny, open, caring, highly ethical, on time, and pretty! I now drive 25 miles to see her. I don’t think I could find a better dentist in LA.

Sandra A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Definitely the best dentist I’ve ever had in my life and have met!!  She is so patient, so smart and makes you feel very comfortable.  I actually found her through Yelp and researching for a dentist because I was new to LA at the time and I am fearful of dentists (and have had very bad experiences).  I cracked and broken my two front teeth after flipping on my bike during my ironman training and I needed a professional, SKILLED dentist who knew what they were doing to fix my two front teeth (and to make my two front teeth look REAL, FLAWLESS, and like the others). The crash was painful and I was so nervous about getting my two front teeth fixed that it just scared me to find and go to a brand new dentist. BUT after all these great reviews from the people – I went and, BOY, I was NOT sorry.  She was AMAZING and great with me.  And I am not easy!  She walked me through every procedure, kept me in the loop about what she was doing, explained everything to me as she was going and was just SO PATIENT with me… I am a super perfectionist and these are my two front teeth so you know I’m gonna be a tough customer!!  She was SO GOOD, she too is a perfectionist and worked and worked with me to get my teeth exactly right and perfect so you can’t even tell that they are fake!!!  I mean, she was a perfectionist right there with me to get the shapes right, the colors right (to go with my other teeth) and to really make them look flawless!!  And I am telling you, my teeth are FLAWLESS!!  NO ONE can tell they are fake, they look at my smile and compliment how perfect my teeth are !!  It’s really awesome!  I actually now feel comfortable and less fearful of dentists because of her – and as long as I can continue only seeing her!!! 🙂  There are some scary dentists out there, I know – but she really is the perfect dentist.  She CARES!!!!!  She really, really does and that’s what makes the difference!  I HIGHLY recommend her and you won’t be sorry.  Amazing dentist, really great staff as well – everyone is so nice and kind.  I will be going to her FOREVER and even taking my kids there – if I ever have any! 🙂  AWESOME AWESOME AWESOME and I can’t express it enough!

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


I know that 99% of HMO dentists are incompetent! I decided to try my luck after my boyfriend signed us up for free HMO coverage. The fillings I had done were wrong. The treatment was painful and I didn’t get my free cleaning after I had asked for it. I went to see Dr. Ho ( who is NOT an HMO provider) and she fixed EVERYTHING! my teeth look beautiful and she couldn’t have been more understanding. She is a master at the craft and is extremely knowledgeable. Not only is she very capable, she explains everything as she goes so there are no surprises. Everyone needs to visit this dentist, she is nothing short of amazing. I could go on and on about how wonderfully honest and competent she is but you should stop reading reviews at this one and GO SEE DR. HO!

Andrew T. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I first went to Dr. Ho about 5 years ago on the advice of my friend’s girlfriend (now wife).  I’ve since moved significantly further away, but make the trek to Marina del Rey twice a year for my cleanings. I really like the fact that Dr. Ho herself generally does my cleanings.  I feel like having an actual dentist (who used to work as a hygienist) is a great combination.  My old dentist would just come in after the cleaning and look at my teeth for a few minutes, but I really appreciate how Dr. Ho basically looks gets to look at my teeth for the entire time of the cleaning

Juliet H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you need a dentist, I recommend Dr. Claire Ho! I am embarrass to say I haven’t been to a dentist for a couple of years and was scared and dreading the visit. Dr. Ho didn’t criticize despite the fact that my teeth were in bad shape… Dr. Ho was exactly what the other reviewers mentioned, she’s professional, personable and honest. I was nervous but she put me at ease by explaining step by step about what she was going to do next and made sure I wasn’t in any pain before she started the procedure. She’s a perfectionist and does a great job with finesse. What I most appreciate about Dr. Ho is that she does mostly everything herself.  My past dentist would assign me to different staff for different procedures and though I understand the importance of the business aspects, they lacked empathy… Dr. Ho genuinely cares about each of her patients. The office is clean and good energy flows throughout. Her staff Theresa is also so wonderful and friendly Dr.Ho will be my forever dentist!!

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


Seriously, I have NEVER enjoyed myself at the dentist until now. I can’t believe how friendly Dr. Ho and the entire staff of the office were. I hadn’t been to the dentist in 3 years (I know..I know) and Dr. Ho didn’t make me feel like a criminal and was very gentle in how she gave me pointers on how to avoid similar issues in the future. I felt so welcomed at the office and surprised how personable Dr. Ho and her staff were. Everyone was extremely knowledgeable and explained my insurance coverage details and the next steps for my teeth.  I have never experienced such a welcoming, yet professional dentist office. I will definitely be back (I hope with improved teeth and gums) and I will make sure my fiance makes an appointment. I definitely recommend giving this office a chance. You won’t regret it!

Kevin N. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ho and her staff are amazing! My fiance’ has been going to see her for some time, but I went today for a cleaning before our wedding this upcoming weekend. Her staff and she got me in with little problem, got me set up, and took care of me!  The thing I loved the most about the experience is that her office is like a small town feel in a major city. They treated me like a person and a client versus just another patient in from off the street. Dr. Ho did the cleaning and chatted with me the whole time. She is very personable and easy going. I am not a big fan of going to the dentist, but her staff and she did not shame for cleaning habits or try to sell anything. They took care of business and got me set up for my next check-up and cleaning. What an amazing group of people! This is a great example of patient care!

Al L. from Playa Del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I remember looking for a dentist a few years back. Meg B.’s Yelp review was on point about finding a good mechanic in Ed Little in Culver City, and she had left another 5 star for Dr. Ho. As it turns out, shes was 2 for 2, in my book. Just a few points. For most of my life, cleanings usually involved hitting the sensitive parts of my teeth with the scraper. I don’t think she’s done that once. Dr. Ho is very meticulous and conscious about getting the job done right, without pain. Years ago I had recessed gums that would bleed. She recommended a deep cleaning with Dr. Horowitz. That changed my life, as after the process, he basically taught me how to brush my teeth correctly (focusing on the gums). My gums have been healthy since. And to re-iterate, the entire staff will make you feel like family. She moved her offices from Marina Del Rey about an year ago to Westchester, but I’ll drive wherever she goes, because like a good trust-worthy mechanic, great dentists are hard to find.

Gary G. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Talented, Careful, Friendly, and just plain GREAT! I am a new patient who has waited until after my procedure was complete before reviewing. The office has a relaxed, friendly feel that is immediately noticed. The talented work of this very sure and steady dentist is preceded by her telling you everything that she is doing, step by step. Dr. Ho has a very warm heart and it shows in her careful and considerate approach. I feel like I have made new friends as this dental office now feels as comfortable as home. If you need to see a very bright and careful dentist then I would suggest you give her office a call. You’ll thank me and on that note: Thanks to the other reviewers that helped in my choice.

Brian P. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the best dentist I’ve ever met.  I moved to Los Angeles last year and had a horrible experience with the first dentist I went to: a five month saga that involved 3 fillings, 2 crowns, and finally a root canal all on the same tooth!  Needless to say I never wanted to go to any dentist again.  Last month I moved to Marina del Rey and since it was time for a checkup decided to give Dr. Ho a try.   As the other reviews point out Dr. Ho is a class act.  She takes the time to explain everything she does and even goes over your insurance plan with you pointing out what it does and doesn’t cover.  She also does all the work herself which is very reassuring.  I am happy to say I don’t dread going to the dentist anymore!

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


I have been to Dr. Ho several times, and she and her staff are great. My first visit to a dentist in a couple of decades obviously required a couple of follow ups, but Dr. Ho never lectured or nagged, just prodded. I have had a couple of cavities filled, and after one filling I felt a bit of pain. I called the office and Dr. Ho volunteered to stay late or even come in on her day off to take a look at it, no questions or payment reuired. (Thankfully the pain subsided and wasn’t an issue after that). I highly recommend Dr. Ho!

Raj J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


*I’ve never submitted a review for anything in my life.  But, I think Dr. Ho deserves to be recognized.* It is always a treat to see Dr. Ho.  She is by far the most conscientious, attentive, detail oriented, and skilled dentist I’ve ever been treated by.  I’m super picky about my teeth, and she is always at the ready to make the minor adjustments that I request.  I sometimes wonder if I’m costing her money because she’s dedicated to getting the perfect result versus watching the clock.   I’ve been seeing her for 3 years, and I can’t imagine going to anyone else.  Her depth of knowledge and her “wears her heart on her sleeve” level of caring transcends what I would expect from any doctor.   I honestly can’t say enough about how Dr. Ho has changed my view on going to the dentist.  I look forward to each visit, and she miraculously remembers every detail of what I’ve told her about my life in the many hours we’ve had together.   Are you scared of dentists?  Worried about the pain?  Don’t think they know what they’re doing?  Well, stop your whining and make an appointment with Dr. Ho!!

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


Really like Dr. Ho. She is sweet and positive – not at all super negative or pushy like most dentists I’ve come across. Always a pleasant experience. You can tell she knows her profession well and is confident, skilled and, yes, even passionate about dentistry. Also – I personally hate x-rays and when I decline them she lets me make the decision vs. trying to push me into something I don’t want like everyone else has. A friend of mine recommended her and I have never been sorry I switched.

Ana W. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


What? A dentist that actually acts like a real person? AMAZING! After a recent run of crappy doctors, I am thrilled with Dr. Ho. She is fun to be around and talks to you like an equal, not a dumb patient. She genuinely cares about making sure you understand what’s going on and makes you feel totally comfortable asking any question. I was also very impressed that she took the time to understand my dental and overall health history and asked me questions about my lifestyle as it pertains to my teeth. Also there was no waiting!!! I really cannot recommend her highly enough. The rest of her team is fantastic as well (hi Kathy and Sarah!) If you’re looking for a dentist in LA Dr. Ho is the absolute best.

Edwin C. from New York, NY (Source: Yelp)


Claire Ho is awesome.  I’ve always hated going to the dentist my entire life, and it had been about 2 years since I had been, so I knew I really needed to go get my teeth checked out.  She’s extremely nice and really takes her time with you.  She was really down to earth and friendly, and made me feel comfortable in her office, even though I really don’t like being at the dentist’s office. I always ask a ton of questions whenever I go to the doctor (and just every day in general), so I was doing the same w/ Dr. Ho.  Every little thing she did with my teeth, I would ask her about it, and she never got annoyed or tired of answering my questions.  Some people say I’m annoying for asking so many questions all the time x-(, but Dr. Ho had no problem with it at all!  She took her time to answer all my questions in detail and was very patient w/ me. When working on my teeth, she definitely took her time and did not rush anything at all.  She’s really thorough, and explained everything well so I was never nervous. Besides being a wonderful doctor; just like everyone else here has mentioned, she’s a great person.  She’s just really nice, honest, and funny.  I wish we were friends! She’s really chatty, which is a good thing, but she also knows when not to try and get you to talk (like when you have your mouth stuffed w/ dental stuff). Also, her X-Ray tech (sorry, i forgot your name!) is very cool too. I really need to come back here again.

James D. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


I found Claire through & All the positive reviews posted. I have to say… Claire and her staff were fantastic! I was made to feel comfortable and at ease throughout. Claire told me exactly what she was doing and why. She treats you as a new friend, not as a dentist – which really makes the whole experience that much easier and actually enjoyable! The reason for my visit was a cosmetic issue – my bonding on left front tooth had come off and Claire took me very last minute, which I really appreciated. I came out looking great and feeling great. Not one bad thing to say about my experience.

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


Dr. Ho is engaging, kind, and great at dentistry.  Her staff is professional and courteous.  I was so impressed at every level.  Additionally, I have PPO insurance but usually I still owe an extra fee when I go to the dentist, but Dr. Ho only charged the contracted amounts so my appointment was essentially free (if you don’t count my high insurance premiums!).  That was such a treat.   I would highly recommend seeing Dr. Ho because she is so friendly and she really listens to her patients.

Jakub K. from Miramar, FL (Source: Yelp)


I just got back from my 2nd teeth cleaning and just like the first visit it went great.  I have been to 5 different dentists over last 4 years in Los Angeles, and I feel she is one of the best if not best dentists I had working on my teeth. I find it interesting that many people give her poor rating because their insurance did not cover work that was done on particular person’s teeth, or because they were charged a cancellation fee (keep in mind that in this office only Dr. Clair L. Ho does work on your teeth and nobody else) so if you cancel she needs enough time to fill that time slot, makes perfect sense, other Dentists have assistants doing cleaning or interns and I have experienced that (not worth it). All and all, I would recommend this dentist to everyone.

Chucheng H. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I must admit that the first glance of entering the office does not impress me at all. Everything is just what you expect to see in a dental office. It is just another office behind a small door located at a giant business building. (Yeah… it remind me a building in a movie, The Matrix (1999) ) However, the YELP has proved again its reviews are all true. I went here yesterday and had Dr. Ho taking care my teeth cleaning. I am very satisfied with her skill and the atmosphere in this office. Not to mention her assistant, Ms. Cathy, she is amazing. I never saw a people so friendly in my life. Anyway, I think “teeth cleaning” is just a common procedure that every dentist should be familiar with in his/her training. As a patient, my teeth has been cleaned at least twenty times and I know what’s going to happen in teeth cleaning. While someone try to clean your gum through scratching, in no way do you feel “comfortable”. Anyway, the very difference between her and other dentists is “reliability”. It’s hard to describe but you can feel that she does explain every steps that are going to happen and let you see your teeth before and after the cleaning. When you ask a question, she is indeed, careful listening. And more important, you don’t feel that your dentist rushes your cleaning for accommodating more patients . Anyway, I’m scared to see a dentist not because of pain but because of not knowing what he/she did to me 🙂 And she make me feel reliable on her treatment. “Reliability” is the most important thing I choose a dentist. However, there’s something you better know in advance. Here are some things you should know: – If you cannot find their office, look for “CHASE” bank. They are located in the same building. – They don’t validate parking, and parking fee is very very high. ($3 ? for 15 minutes, $16 maximum). If you are customer of CHASE, you may want to try to visit CHASE after the dental appointment and I believe CHASE validate your parking. (I am NOT CHASE customer, unfortunately) I will try to find a street parking next time. – They charge every thing at the day  you visit, no matter which insurance company you belongs to. Yes, they do accept insurance and they will help you to file a claim to the insurance company. However, they help you to get “reimbursement” but not charge insurance directly. In other words, be sure you bring a credit card with enough credit limit. – A cleaning and an examination  and X-rays might take first visitor 2 hours (or more) including writing some documents and questionaries.
– They will take a picture at your visit and put it on your file, so dress decently 🙂

I saw Dr. Ho back in July and was delighted with her, her office (great views!) and staff – all very personable and professional. It was such a refreshing change from the rude, conveyor belt style, multiple-doctor office system that seems prevalent these days (e.g. Manhattan Village Dental Group). She also didn’t try to push elective work or use other common tactics used by less scrupulous dentists to convince me that I would need unnecessary, lucrative procedures (something that happened to me at another LA-area dentist group and was later cited as unnecessary work) in order to milk my insurance.
On insurance, I didn’t have network coverage during my first visit but will for the next visit. Dr. Ho’s assistant was up front about my liability and didn’t try to obfuscate anything like one Yelper said she did. It is actually impossible for me to imagine them even doing something like that. It is very hard to find a good, honest, friendly dentist these days, and Dr. Ho has all those qualities. I recommend her whole-heartedly!

Tracey B. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


i went to Dr Ho as she is a fellow Mom at my children’s school, and I know her personally.  This can either be a good or bad thing depending on the job that is done…  I am happy to report that I won’t have to hide from Dr Ho in the car park as she did an amazing job.  Having had both good and bad dental experiences, I am happy to clasify this as a good experience.  She was very thorough, I liked the fact that she did the cleaning herself and she ‘showed’ me around my teeth so that I knew what each tooth looked like and what was right / wrong with it.  I will be going back and encourage anyone looking for a dentist who does a very thorough job with a very pleasant manner to give Dr Ho a try !
