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

Guita S. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Atakhanian has been my dentist for the past 20 years! When I first moved to Glendale I asked around about for a good dentist for myself and my daughter who was 10 years old at that time. I was referred to Dr. Atakhanian. She has taken the best care possible of my daughter and myself throughout the years. I have referred many of my family and friends to her and they have all been very happy with the quality of her services. She goes above and beyond the call of duty to put her patients at ease before performing any procedure. I dare say she is the best dentist I have ever been to.

I highly recommend Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian! I have been her patient for many years and I can confidently say that she is the best at what she does. She always keeps herself up-to-date in her field, provides easy to understand explanations in everything she does and most importantly, as a patient, you can see she loves what she does from the way she works. From the moment you walk in, her and her staff, especially George, make sure you feel at ease!!

Melissa M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Atakhanian and her staff always give the most wonderful dentistry experience. They’re extremely kind, caring, and compassionate while also being professional and take the problem head on. I am so glad to have found a dentist like them. Dr. Atakhanian is always kind enough to explain the situation and does the greatest work you’ll ever see while being very attentive. Gevik and Ivette are amazing too. The whole crew also knows how to bring a smile and a lot of laughter to the room. I’m really thankful for them!

Sona S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where to start? Dr. Atakhanian is an AMAZING dentist. I love visiting them and who actually likes going to the dentist George and Ivette are so kind and so helpful…I don’t usually write reviews but today I feel inclined to. I had to take my son with me and he was bored in the waiting room. George had given him chips and kept talking to him to pass the time. I came out mid-treatment to find him sleeping on the chair. The doctor told me to take him to one of the rooms where he could sleep comfortably. She even brought him a blanket! My son wasn’t having it, he got scared so Ivette brought a chair and a blanket to the room I was in and said he could wait there for me. George even came to ask my son if he wanted the window opened. Everyone was so sweet and attentive, my 5 year old later told me it’s fun going there. I’m humbled by the treatment they gave us…not only are they all very professional but they are amazing human beings. Thank you Dr. Atakhanian, Ivette and George for being so wonderful.

I have been a patient with Dr. Atakhanian for several years now and she has been the most understanding, and knowledgeable Dr. that I have ever been with. She’s very detailed and treats her patients like family. I highly recommend her to anyone who needs a professional, knowledgeable dentist. You will not be dissappointed. 

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


I’m really scared of any type of needle but Dr. Clarisse has the softest hand and made me feel very safe and secured. I didn’t even feel any pain! She’s the best dentist I’ve been to and also the sweetest person i know! I recommend her to anyone who wants to get the job well done and have a great time at the same time!

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


We’ve been going to this dentist  for several years.  She is the best dentist we’ve ever had, and we switched dentists quite a few times before we found her.  We have eight kids, so believe me, we are there a lot just for check-ups.  She is really great with kids. There is lots of parking, and the waiting room is really nice and comfortable.  She doesn’t overbook so there are never loads of people in there like at some dentists, and works out her scheduling so you don’t have to wait long, if at all.  She won’t get you to do any unnecessary work; when I first went to her, my previous (expensive and slow) dentist had insisted that I needed a crown replaced. Dr. Atakhanian checked, and said it was fine, no replacement needed at that time.  That was four years ago.  I still have it, and it’s still good.  Most importantly, her actual dental work is excellent, but not only that, her office is well run and it’s just pleasant to go there.  She’s also a really caring person, an honest person, and she’ll do what’s best for you, not what’s best for the insurance company or for her.

Christine B. from Columbus, GA (Source: Yelp)


Had such a great experience today with her and her whole staff! Was referred by a friend/ co worker and she didn’t steer me wrong. I have serious anxieties when it comes to going to the dentist and from the moment I walked in I was very comfortable and at ease! So far I’m sold on highly recommending them to any future patients!

Renia S. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian for many years now and she has always been amazing. Her and her staff are very polite and super friendly and they always make sure that I have all my questions answered. I’m always seated at the time of my appointment sometimes even 5-10 minutes earlier. Dr. Clarisse is very professional and I have recommended her to many people and they had all been satisfied with the results, as so am I!!! Overall she cares about her patients and the outcome… she makes my dental visits very pleasant.

Lolita N. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Atakhanian did another three filling for me today. She is very experienced. Does an amazing job and fast. Lunch hour got a beautiful smile . The staff is very friendly and courteous .  The dr.’d assistance Evet truly cares for the patient as well as the dr. Does . And has been there as long as I remember . About ten years . My boys teeth looks so shinny. Even after two weeks cleaning.  Thank you.

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


Just had my first appointment with Dr. Atakhanian, and I’m impressed.  She did the cleaning herself (instead of a technician) and with the ultrasonic pick did it quickly and efficiently.  As opposed to the cleaning tech at my old dentist with the manual pick, which makes for an excruciating experience.  On the screen Dr. Atakhanian showed me where any issues were, and pointed out something no other dentist had noticed that explained why I’m getting a food trap between two teeth.  She also promised a more than fair cash price for fixing a couple of fractured teeth and fillings.  Mostly she takes the time to explain and show you what’s going on.

Ana'ar M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Atakhanian is a caring, kind, and knowledgeable dentist. She is cautious about drug combinations and interactions. My mom has osteoarthritis and was on a special medication. She needed an extraction, but Dr. Atakhanian made sure to wait until the drugs are flushed out of her system to extract the tooth. She’s always been very kind and attentive to my mom. She makes her feel happy  and respected. Her staff is very friendly and helpful. They answer your questions, follow up on any outstanding matter and very respectful and warm. The doctor has even called me a few times to discuss my mom’s condition. I’ve rarely had an experience like that with any doctor.

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


Look no further because this is the greatest dentist’s office out there! I can honestly say that I avoided going to the dentist for about five years because when I thought of going to the dentist I just imagined having to go for four hours to do a filling and leaving in pain. This was the only thing I was used to, until i went to Dr. Clarisse’s office. From the moment you walk in, the staff is very friendly and welcoming. You will feel as though you have known every single person in the office for years. After a few visits, I have probably had over six fillings done by Dr. Clarisse and I barely felt a thing. The whole process was so quick and easy that I couldn’t believe I was done. Highly recommend Dr. Clarisse to anyone looking to get any dental work done!

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


Best of the Best! I forgot my fear of going to the dentist 5 minutes after I arrived. The staff is AMAZING and they make you feel like family right when you walk in…I have to have extensive work done, and it was obvious from the beginning that Clarisse knows what she’s doing, and does it well. She took the time to go over everything in detail with me until I was comfortable with the procedure. The wait was short and she does not double-book like most dentists do. The place was clean and the equipment current. They have extended hours which makes it easy for me to schedule my appointments consecutively, and are even open on some Saturdays!! I was hesitant to take that 30 min trip to her office, but I’m glad I did…even got a goody bag! If you’re looking for the best dentist in the Valley – you’ve found her! **I never write reviews – but this was well deserved**

Rene O. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Doctor Clarisse for over 10 years now and I can honestly say I have always had a great experience. She takes her time with every procedure she has to do and her work is great. Definitely recommend her.

Araz S. from Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


I think Dr. Atakhanian is amazing! I’ve been going to her for about 10 years. Being her patient, I learned that quality of care is her priority. She makes sure at the end of the day her patients are taken care of at her best. Procedures so far she has done on my teeth are root canals, fillings, and dental repairs since I always took care of my teeth. Thanks to her!! I just did my first crown and lovee itt. Still got a bunch of teeth left to fill again and another crown.  In general, she is friendly and wants to also get to know her patients. I recommend.

Arnie A. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian loves what she does. Being a dentist and helping patients gain that beautiful smile they want and deserve is what she works for. Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian takes her time with her patients not only to explain the procedures, but she also takes her time to give patients who have fear of being on the dental chair ease. My experiences have always gone smoothly at her office therefore I recommend her to all my friends for regular checkups emergency situations  and cosmetic dentistry amazing work!

If you are looking for a dentist that has the state of the art dental equipment, that keeps up-to-date in her profession, is very knowledgeable, then Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian is the right dentist for you. Watching her work is truly a craft. She makes it seem so effortless and creates such an at-ease environment for the patient and that is a true marker of a knowledgeable dental professional. Dr. Atakhanian made my crown in her own office using Cerec which only took approximately 40 mins rather than sending out to a lab. That was a huge convenience for me and I loved it. I highly recommend Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian!!!

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


I wanted to update my review to show my absolute gratitude and respect for Dr. Atakhanian and her staff. I had to have three root canals and multiple fillings, and today I got two root canals and two fillings. I was absolutely dreading it, as we tried to do a root canal on my back molar and it didn’t work because it turned out that it was a “hot tooth”. We went ahead and did a root canal on my other tooth, which went splendidly. I felt no pain and Dr. Clarisse and her dental assistant Ivet made sure that I was okay the whole time. I got my root canal and two fillings, and she asked if I would like to try again on the hot tooth before referring me to a specialist. I said yes, and it went really well! I did my best to be courageous as she numbed me up, and after that it was smooth sailing. I have a tiny mouth and almost vomited because of one of the devices that had to be used to keep my mouth open and dry so that they can work on my teeth, but that is my fault and Dr. Clarisse and Ivet did everything they could to ease my discomfort and make sure that I am okay. I really appreciate that they take my dental anxiety into consideration and they are so patient with me. Even her receptionist Gevork is so sweet and he always jokes around to ease my anxiousness when I get there. Dr. Clarisse and Ivet stayed an extra two hours after they were supposed to go home to work on my teeth. I couldn’t be more grateful and I am not afraid of my next upcoming visit. Thank you so so much to everybody that works here, you are all wonderful.  Definitely found a dentist for life, and I promise that I will take better care of my teeth!.

Patricia C. from Sunland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Clarisse for several years now. I have multiple medical problems and she has shown compassion and understanding. While having my teeth whiten, the slow pace began to trigger an anxiety attack, Dr. Clarisse, began to massage my temples to relax me. She’s a kind person who really cares about her patients. I’ve been to five dentist before becoming a patient of Dr. Clarisse. Without a doubt, I’ve never experienced so little pain in the dentist chair. So if you’re looking for a compassionate, kind and “a little or no pain” dentist, I’d recommend Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian.

Aylin D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Looking for a dentist? Go to Clarisse Atakhanian. Hands down, she is the coolest and BEST there is! I’ve been going to her since I was a kid and I’m almost 30 now.  Like most people, I have a fear of sitting in the dentist chair, but Dr. Atakhanian makes you feel so comfortable and relaxed.  Her staff is also very warm and sincere.  It feels like visiting an auts’s house when I show up for an appointment, everyone is so nice!!! Last but not least, i must mention Dr. Atakhanian’s dentistry.  She is truly one of the best at what she does. I highly recommend her.

Brittney S. from San Fernando, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was originally referred by a close friend and normally I have such anxiety when it comes to going to the Dentist. But from my very first experience, EVERYONE was/is so welcoming. George and Ivette are amazing!!! Feels like my 2nd family.  I know I would be horrified anywhere else to get a root canal but with Dr. Clarisse, I am totally comfortable and ready haha! She’s quick, she’s extremely gifted in her line of work and LOVES her patients!! I haven’t had any issues with the work she has already done. She is always making sure I’m comfortable. She is the best!!!You won’t be disappointed!xoxo.

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


All my life, I have been scared of the dentist. There was one point in my life, that I refused going at all. Recently, my tooth was getting worse as time went and it was very embarrassing to smile or even open my mouth. I decided to go go Clarisse. At first, I was a nervous wreck, sweating, voice cracking as I spoke. She said I may need to do a root canal on on my front two teeth, but also said she will try to save them. Everyone told me that I’ll be fine only the shot to your gums will hurts. I laid down, she gave me the shot, which I didn’t even feel a pinch, and started. An hour later, I was done, looking brand new…literally. I did not feel one ounce of pain or even pressure. I am honestly SO GLAD that I went and that fear, what fear All gone. Thank you SO SO SO much Clarisse and Evette. You guys are amazing honestly. I can’t thank you enough. The job done was SO clean and accurate, I can’t stop looking at my teeth. Very clean office and amazing staff. Don’t get intimidated by Gevork(front desk), he is the most nicest and awesome person. Thank you guys!

Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian is an Amazing dentist. She takes her time with patients explaining precedures that need to be done and working with patients by helping them feel relaxed at the dental office. Dr. Clarrise is an amazing dentist as well because she loves what she does and because of her love for dentistry and helping patients achieve that beautiful smile she is amazing at what she does.

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


This is an extremely long overdue review I’ve been meaning to leave for our family dentist. Dr. Clarisse Atakhanian is one of the most professional, experienced, honest and personable doctors I’ve ever met in my life. There’s a reason her Yelp page has 5 stars, because she truly is the best in the area and generally a joy to be around. I love coming to the office for this very reason, because of the happy environment they’ve created. I go to her for regular cleanings, occasional cavity fillings and for when my tooth chips. They always take me in promptly for my appointments and I’m usually out of the office within 30 minutes to an hour. The staff is always personable, kind and very welcoming as well. PARKING. Available in the back, limited number of spaces. Possible to park in residential areas on the neighboring streets.

Kristina S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Atakhanian for many years and I could not be more thankful for the work she does. She is professional, experienced and most importantly, caring. I am probably her worst patient as it’s very hard to work with my schedule  yet she is always so patient and understanding. Thank you for all you do doctor!

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


Dr. Clarisse is amazing and very accommodating!  My son fell and cracked his tooth in half.  We had to find an emergency dentist and we weren’t even existing patients!  She saw my 11 year old right away and put us at ease with what he may need. Her staff was wonderful from George in the front office who has the best personality to her dental assistants who are all so sweet.  The Dentist was wonderful, caring and kind and very knowledgeable. Her equipment is very new looking or just maintained well.  She is open late which is great if you have a long work day and need later hours!

Helene G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband is terrified of dentists, so I was going as a guinea pig for him, and she is now 100% vetted! She is the nicest dentist I’ve ever been to! I went for the first time when I was pregnant, and we didn’t do the x-rays to be on the safe side, but she still cleaned my teeth and gave me her opinion based on pictures that she took of my teeth. We went over the pictures together and she gave me a detailed explanation of what she could see and what she thought was going on in the teeth without the x-rays. She and her staff are all very kind and made me feel comfortable right away.

Located on the 2nd floor of a building in a parking lot (yea, you read that right), it gives the feeling that the building is a chop shop. But Dr. Atakhanian is the complete opposite. She is one of the nicest people you will ever meet. She makes every effort to save each and every tooth. Her work is important to her and she is almost a perfectionist which I appreciate because you know that you are getting great quality work. She is candid, in a professional and polite manner, with her patients about their care without sugar coating it. Some may not like the fact that she is private practice and so she comes in for 10-15 min to work on you. Then she offers you a break so she can work on another patient but personally, I think it’s great. How many of us can keep our mouths open for 30-45 minutes for a cleaning? I appreciate the break to catch my breath, get a drink, rinse out, and back to the task at hand. Her office offers flexible hours (open late on certain days, some weekends) that I usually schedule my visits in the evening after a full day of work. The receptionists are friendly in calling you a day early to remind me of appointments. Prices: If you have no insurance, they are some of the most competitive out of pocket fees that you’ll find. I’ve been a patient for 6 years (2 without insurance) and it was great to pay cheap prices. Also, she works with patients to arrange financial assistance with a 3rd party vendor.

Evan A. from Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Atakhanian and her team are amazing. She has been taking care of our family for years and we couldn’t be happier. Everyone in her office is welcoming and kind. They are flexible with scheduling and really bend over backwards to give you a wonderful experience every time.

Elvis T. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Clarisse has been my dentist for over 2 years now. And I am very lucky to find a honest and perfectionist dentist. I have had couple dentist in the past, they were horrible. They lied and over charged me and my insurance. Sad thing is I have to redo the work they did. Dr Clarisse is very friendly and most of all very flexible with your schedule. If the job isn’t perfect she won’t let u leave. She takes her time with u and makes u feel like she cares. She keeps u entertained as she’s working on your teeth so your not bored. I have been getting really good complements on my teeth by friends and family.  I enjoy my teeth and ever since I have been coming here I don’t get teeth pain anymore. Her prices are fair. Remember you get what you pay for. I have a dentist for life thanks dr Clarisse.

I am very pleased with the care and attention at her office, from the receptionist to the assitants and the dentist herself. After my visit my teeth felt like brand new she is well prepared and very careful makes sure you are pleased with the after results. Super friendly people with a positive attitude and great conversations to have with. Would totally recommend them to anyone! ( I normally don’t wite reviews about any of the past doctors I’ve visited so I really felt I should let you know about their services.)


I have been practicing dentistry for 22 years. I truly enjoy dentistry. It has been my passion since I was a teenager. I graduated from high school in London/England, and then moved to the United Stated in 1982. Went to Glendale community college for 2 years, after which I went to UCLA for undergraduate studies and graduated with a B.S in 1989. While going to school I did volunteer as a dental assistant for a few years, since I knew that I truly loved to become a dentist and wanted to experience the field of dentistry and actually work in a dental office. working as a dental assistant confirmed my love of dentistry and gave me the green light to proceed with applying to dental schools, and luckily I did get accepted to university of pacific in san Francisco ( UOP) where I obtained my D.D.S degree. My patients have become longtime friends and I am very excited about learning and updating my knowledge every chance I get.
