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

Janet L. from La Cañada Flintridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


This past week was my first visit to see Dr. Cook, and I was there to get impressions done for the crowns that will be made for two implants. I have always been very pleased with the care I’ve received from the two hygienists Susan and Lucy (Dr. Cook’s sister and niece), the dental assistant Gloria and the office staff, and this time it was really nice to get to know Dr. Cook. Everyone in the practice is warm, friendly and competent. Everything went very smoothly with the impressions, and Dr. Cook did all that was necessary to explain the procedure and make sure I was comfortable. I will return in three weeks to get the crowns and for teeth cleaning appointments in the future. I wanted to add that the practice is taking all of the necessary Covid-19 precautions to keep all patients safe.

I met with Dr. Garcia, a newer dentist at Dr. Cook’s practice, for a cleaning and general examination. She was very thorough and personable during the exam. Her casual bedside manner helped me feel at ease in the dental chair, which is not always easy for me. She patiently addressed all of my questions at the end of the exam. Overall, this was a successful dental visit and the front office staff was pleasant as always. I will be recommending Dr. Garcia to my friends.

SUCH kind and great people.  The staff really made going to the dentist enjoyable and Lucy did such a thorough and wonderful job cleaning my teeth.  I hadn’t been to the dentist in about two years and it was like I had a new set by the time it was over!  I also don’t have dental insurance, but they had a great deal for $99 to do a cleaning, x-rays, and cavity checks!  Keep up the good work!

Another wonderful visit to Dr. Cook’s office! (Yes, such excitement for the dentist.) He is an excellent dentist and takes time with his patients.  Dr. Cook is more than competent and the staff are friendly and caring.  I always feel like I’m a member of the family.

Dr. Eugene Bock, at the office he shares with Dr. Steven Cook, has been my dentist since 1978. I’m from a little town back east without access to such professional care. So over the first few years Dr. Bock repaired all the problems in my mouth. (He’s even my respected oral surgeon’s dentist as I found out when I broke a tooth and needed an implant) Normally, all I need now is twice-a-year cleaning by Dr. Cook’s gentle and painless hygienists.

Janine W. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Cook has been my dentist now for over 15 years. It’s been a family operation since his dad started it years ago. Now it’s his sister and his niece too. And they have the most friendly efficient support to help you ( shout out to Rena at the front desk). Not only is it mostly family but they make you feel like family as well.  Rena at the front desk. Don’t let the small town charm of everyone fool you as they also have the most up to date equipment . You can get a cap done in one day!!! Or in my case 3!!! No one likes going to the dentist but Dr Cook and his staff will make it as easy as possible for you.

Felicia T. from Raleigh, NC (Source: Yelp)


All I can say is that my 2 year old let them clean her teeth! My child won’t even walk through a doctors front door, without a fuss. The staff is amazing, kind, professional and amazing. I am moving to NC and plan to come back to LA for my cleanings. Seriously.

I have been coming to Dr. Cook and Susan for over 15 years. Dr. Cook is wonderful and so is his staff. They are honest, great at explaining things and take great care of my Mouth. They are up to date on all the latest oral care. I love them!!

I love my dentist. I have been going to see Dr. Cook and Susan for many years. They are the nicest people and very gentle and extremely effective in their dentistry practices. I actually love going to see them! I highly recommend them.

Liz L. from Westwood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had my first appointment at Dr. Cook’s dental office yesterday. I had no idea what to expect even though I had read the good patient reviews. Since I was a new patient Lucy took a full set of X-rays of all my teeth. Normally when you get x-rays those things that hold the X-ray can be kind of painful. Lucy did the X-rays quickly so was not uncomfortable at all. I had my teeth cleaned by Lucy the dental hygienist as well. She was terrific. It was pleasure getting to know Lucy as well.  After that Dr. Jennifer Garcia came over to check my teeth after my teeth cleaning. She was terrific as well. The office staff was really nice. The parking fee for the garage was only $7 I am used to paying $15 – $20 for parking at my Dr’s appointments. That’s a great deal. FYI -You can easily park on the street as well.

Chris L. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going to Dr. Cook for a few years now. Great dentist, does very good work and the staff is very knowledgeable when it comes to insurance billing. No one likes going to the dentist but it’s even worse when the staff does not know how to bill and you have to spend your time getting involved when you are asked to pay what insurance covers when billed correctly. Parking is easy too, no need to drop $20 to park in a Gucci office buildings underground. That kind of rubs me the wrong way when a co-pay is less than it costs to park at any doctors office and they don’t validate.

I have been a patient of Dr. Bock for over 30 years. I have trusted his knowledge and ability over 4 decades. Dr. Cook and Dr. Bock have merged their practices and created a perfect environment for me to transition over to Dr. Cook when Dr. Bock retires. Dr. Cook and his entire staff have won my confidence and I look forward to a great dental relationship!

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


I am so pleased to have Dr. Cook as my dentist and his sister, Susan, as my dental hygienist.  They are both friendly and thorough.  He replaced the caps on my two front teeth and was very understanding when I could not handle wearing a mouthpiece meant to assist with sleep apnea.  His front staff is also friendly.   I recommend Dr. Cook’s team without reservation!

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


Dr. Jennifer Garcia made my dental visit easy, painless, and even pleasant! Thought I needed a filling, but she discovered I only needed a chip smoothed out, and an adjustment on another tooth. I’m new to this office… I had two instant crowns made by Dr. Cook a few months ago, and then got a quick appointment with Dr. Garcia yesterday. I’m really happy with both dentists, and might even request Dr. Jennifer Garcia in the future!

Linda B. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cook is my family’s dentist so when I moved to LA, no question about it. I met Dr Cook.When does someone say, “I enjoy going to the dentist”?  Well I do. Each time I go it’s a chance to get in touch with each other and to learn about our respective families.  Susan and Lucy are wonderful hygienists and cleanings don’t hurt.And, of course, we go to get our teeth fixed by the most professional and greatest dentist ever. He doesn’t hurt either.

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


I love this place. So clean and literally everyone genuinely friendly, especially Susan! Her cleanings are awesomely fast and thorough. She also makes me feel really good about not having any cavities, like makes me want to keep up the good work ‍

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


Just went back to Dr. Cook yesterday to have some crowns put in.  They design and make them RIGHT THERE.  It’s beyond cool that you don’t have to mess around with the temporary crown and go back.  They look fantastic and feel great!  I can’t tell they’re crowns in the least. We also made a plan to get my teeth and smile looking great and healthy.  I’m so glad to have found Dr. Cook and his team!  Thanks to all.

Lisa L. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cook and his staff are the best!! Our family dentist for over twenty years for all our general dentistry needs and referrals. Truly exceptional service. So pleasant and never a moment of discomfort. We would never go anywhere else!

Jean Brennan (Source: Google)


The whole office staff gets five stars from our family: from the desk staff to the hygienists (who are Dr Cook’s sister and niece, Susan and Lucy, the kindest, gentlest cleanings I’ve ever experienced). Also his partners Dr Garcia and Dr Bock, all provide excellent care! My grandmother went to his father in Westwood, and our fourth generation is still going to this family practice. Highly recommend!

Jilly H. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen Dr. Cook on a few different occasions this time for extensive procedures. Not at anytime from entering his office did I feel uncomfortable or worried about anything I was having done or worried about sanitation, unprofessionalism in any way. Dr cook did three crowns and a cavity filled.  Susan Schneider did my cleaning(a fabulous job. Best ever) while my crowns were being made (in the office). No need to return as there is no temporary crowns!!!! My teeth look great on day two and have no swelling, no bruising, no pain and will continue to return to whom I think is a really top notch dentist and crew.
Thanks JIlly

Margarita S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Whenever I go into Dr. Cook’s office I feel like I am among family.  I feel relaxed, well taken care of and grateful for the work Dr. Cook has done on my teeth.  The whole office is very professional and efficient, yet, at the same time, kind and concerned with every one of the patients that walks into the office.  I highly recommend this practice for any dental work!

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


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Kenneth Cook and Dr. Steven Cook since 1969.  I’ve grown up with Susan and Dr. Steven Cook and their families.  I can’t imagine going anywhere else.  It’s like coming home when I go to the dentist and they are the best!!!

I love the staff at Dr. Cook’s office. Everyone is so nice and helpful. I had my semi-annual cleaning a while back and it was one of my most pleasant dental experiences ever. Susan was super informative and Dr. Cook was the same. Had a small billing miscommunication and the office staff cleared it up immediately. Went in recently for a free invisalign consultation and that was great as well. Rena called my insurance provider to get answers to my questions before I even left the office. All in all, very happy to have Dr. Cook and his team as my dental providers.

If there is any better dentist than Dr. Steve Cook, I have not met him or her in my 74 years. His father, Ken, was also a superb dentist, but Steve exceeds even his father’s skills, in my opinion. Also, he is fortunate enough to have a gifted dental hygienist, Susan, who conceals her enormous knowledge of dentistry behind a mask of “just doing my job.” When I pass away, I will recommend to all of those on the other side that they should have their dental needs checked every six months by Steve and Susan.

Bennett W. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cook is a true professional, always striving to provide the best service and treatment for his patients.  In addition, he is a really, really nice person…always upbeat, always friendly, as is everyone else in the office.  Not that I like to go to the dentist, but it is always a good experience going to Dr. Cook’s office.

Ryan P. from San Fernando Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


You really can’t understand the caliber of anything, until you have something to compare it too!  Throughout my childhood Dr. Kenneth Cook, DDS was my dentist, and then his son, Dr. Steven Cook DDS after he graduated from USC.  I’m 41 now, and I probably stopped going to Dr. Cooks office when I was 20.  So in the last 20 years I have been to at least 20 different Dentists, for my wife, and for myself.  Some of them were “ok”, in that they seemed to be honest, fair, intelligent, all the things you hope the person you let into your mouth with metal instruments has.  Growing up going to Dr. Cooks office, I figured that every Dentist was the same, I learned, THEY ARE NOT!!!  I could go on, and on  about horror story after horror, even close to physically fighting with two different Dentists, but no, I don’t dwell on the past!  Long story short, it only took my 20+ years to figure out where the best Dentist in the world, to me, is!   P.S.  I don’t condone violence, nor was I the instigator of either of the two instances mentioned above!

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


Been coming to Dr. Cook and his team for about a year and half now. Very happy I chose them. Everyone on the team is super friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to explain things and answer questions. The front desk team is responsive and helpful as well. I’ve never had trouble making an appointment or rescheduling. Dr. Cook also gave me a recommendation for wisdom tooth extraction that I was very satisfied with. A+ all around for Dr. Cook and his team!

Harry R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was fascinated by Dr Steven Cook’s new crown procedure.  It took about 3 hours and I didn’t have to go thru the nasty tasting, making a mold process, worrying about ruining the temporary crown and then the  return visit for inserting the crown. The crown was made by taking computer images. One of the other machines, Sirona’s CEREC MC X milled the mold and another baked it to perfection! And I didn’t have to be glued to the dentist chair for the full 3 hours either. Thank you Dr. Cook and the rest of your team!

Jessica Mccrory (Source: Google)


Everyone at this office is truly amazing!!!  Having a rather large fear of dentists, coming here has completely changed my POV of what to expect in the chair! Everyone from Rena and Joan in the front office to the doctors themselves are just a joy to be around! The hygienists fully educate you on how to properly maintain oral hygiene!! Susan and Lucy are top notch rock stars!!!

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


I’ve been seeing Dr. Cook for many years, and highly recommend him and his staff.  It’s a small, family-type business, with a welcoming, friendly vibe.  But more to the point, the dental work is excellent and thorough.  Each appointment is a pleasure (as much as any trip to the dentist can be).  Plus there’s a Dunkin’ Donuts nearby on Santa Monica Blvd, where I go to reward myself after each teeth-cleaning.

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


I have been going to Dr. Cook and his sister Susan for my teeth cleaning twice a year and any other minor dentistry for probably the last 10 years or more and they are always kind and are the BEST at what they do. I would not go anywhere else. And Susan is the BEST hygienist. They are the BEST!!!!!

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


I can’t say enough good things about this business. Thanks to a friendly and competent staff, it’s always a great experience (and we are talking about a dentist office!!!). Susan is the best hygienist I’ve ever had. Dr Cook is really cool and Rina is very welcoming and funny.
I moved to North Hollywood but I don’t mind the drive. Totally worth it!

Wingfut R. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


He was recommended by a colleague many years and I have been going ever since.  Fabulous dentist, hygienists, and staff.  Easy to make and get convenient appointments.  They were always able to accommodate me when I had a dental emergency!  My whole family goes here and loves it!

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


I have never felt so comfortable with a dental practice as I do with Dr. Cook and his staff. I tend to have a low tolerance for dental pain. My fears and concerns are always been met patience, understanding and detailed explanations of the process required. I am confident that the regular care I receive from Dr. Cook, and his excellent hygienist, Susan, are keeping my teeth healthy and strong.

P. S. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friendly staff, easy booking, text reminders to confirm appointments. All around wonderful experience. My hygienist was very gentle and took her time. Update: I recently went in with my 2 year old and we had a wonderful experience. He felt comfortable, they made him laugh and best of all they got to clean his teeth. I would still recommend them to anyone of any age. Very friendly and just good!
