Dr. Afshar is my dentist for life! Like everyone else I am very nervous about seeing the dentist. Coming here I was just as nervous, but had a huge infection. From beginning to the end of the procedure – everything was explained and almost no discomfort. No one looks forward to seeing their dentist, but this office is top notch. Everyone who works here is caring and will make you feel at ease including Cindy. I agree with all the great reviews here on Yelp about this office and wish they had a higher rating then 5 stars.  Like I said, this is my dentist for life!

Jose Z. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


1st dental visit in about 16 years, the staff is very friendly and professional; not to mention the Doctor who makes you feel very welcome. Nice Clean office and fast prompt service. Im never the type of person that will sit down and rate or review anything online, but i had such a pleaseant experience that this dental office deserves 5 stars and a word of recomendation from anyone who takes their business here. Ill definetly be back for any further dental needs.

Excellent dental practice, the name says it all! Really I could not be happier with my mother’s experience here. As my mother’s english is limited I am always the one scheduling appointments for her and talking to people on her behalf. When she complained that her back tooth was sore and aching, I immediately called up Gentle Dental because it is close to where she lives and was able to get an appointment in the morning the next day. That shows me that they truly care about helping people and are not slipshod when it comes to customer service. I understand that most places will make you wait a long while for an appointment, but they understood that my mother’s matter was somewhat urgent and they did not delay in seeing her. Also, when she arrived the dentist was very honest and thorough and explained to her what was really going on with her teeth. She did not try to upsell her on whitening  procedures or anything unnecessary which was also greatly appreciated. Also, their pricing cannot be beat, $39 for an exam and x-ray! I’m so glad i called this place and anytime I need anything in regards to oral care I will stop by here. Customer for life!

Dr. Kia Afshar is amazing!!! Great with kids my 15-13 year old sons haven been seeing for 9 years . His always honest and does an amazing job on the them. We love to the office Brandy is very helpful too. Always has a smile on her face.

Gabriella E. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Jaw dropping! The best dental staff in all of SFV, friendly and efficient customer service! I felt very comfortable here and best of all my experience here was fast. Because nobody likes going to the dentist. However, the dentists here make you want to return. Dr.Kiabod was gentle and swift with the extraction process of my back teeth and now I am pain free! Thanks Corbin Gentle Dental! 5/5

Shaunndra C. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


We never have to wait to be seen as Soon as we talk in the door Our dental experience is so smooth the whole staff is very friendly and Dr Afshar makes you feel so

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


Best dentist experience in a while!!! Background: I had a filling fall out & went to a random dentist I found on Yelp. After an xray and exam, they told told me I needed about 3k dollars worth of work – including a crown, wisdom teeth out (I have no insurance so that was a bummer)… Which I kind of was confused about since I had gone to a dentist about 5 months before & the only real issue they told me about was filling stuff. I know I have to get my wisdom teeth out eventually (they haven’t broken the surface) but that’s not what I came in for and they hadn’t been bothering me at all. I really just needed to eat w the left side of my mouth again. Anyway, I hesitated to go back right away because i needed to save money. My partner tells me to check out his dentist because they’re Gentle (lol they really are) & trustworthy. Remember I still have a hole in my tooth… The first dentist didn’t do anything about it yet. I come in with only an exam planned at Gentle Dental & was met with kindness right away. I was also told the first dentist had the wrong tooth marked on my chart for where I needed work, & a crown wasn’t necessary at all. They gave me my exam & a temporary filling in about 20 minutes. I’ve already paid the $500 for my next appt where I’ll get 2 fillings & a cleaning. Im glad to be taking care of the stuff I need to right away & am not being overwhelmed by a $3000 bill. I’m stoked because I already feel way better and all it took was an exam. Pretty awesome.

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


My family and I love coming here – and that includes a 9 year old and 3 year old. Matt does a great job of getting them ready and situated with their cartoons of choice while they wait for the doc You know they are the best if a 9 year old is excited to go to the dentist. They are always accommodating to my family’s needs. Brandy is amazing – she always answers all my questions . I don’t think I’ve ever had to leave a voicemail or have to wait for a call back. They never push for any unnecessary work like other places.

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


This office it’s amazing! From the moment you call in to make an appointment Cindy the font desk lady is super nice, knowledgable and efficient. I been coming here for a few things and I was terrified due to other awful experiences, but Dr. Kiabod Afshar and his assistant made me feel so comfortable and safe. He always had taken the time to call my other Dr. (the one that did the root canal) to make sure they were working together on my issue. I really appreciate that he always take time to numb me well and I have never experience any pain in his care. I can finally say that I am not afraid to go to the dentist! I guess the name is right they are GENTLE! By the way, I recently went for a cleaning and it was amazing, I felt as if every tooth could breath.

Brenda E. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


10 stars at least! I have had a lot of dental work done at Corbin Gentle Dental and I have never felt so cared for or important to a dental office as I do here. Every single person who works here knows me and cares about me. They listen, they suggest, they work out issues that arise, and all the time they focus on what I want and need. I feel like they would do anything possible to help me have the smile I want. This feels like what a dental experience should be like at all dental offices. Sadly this is a rarity among dental offices and I am so glad my entire CA family comes here.
Get your teeth healthy here!

Enisha B. from Richmond, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have to agree with my fellow Yelpers about Corbin Gentle Dentistry. This was the best dental experience in my life! Dr. Afshar and the team are super nice, thorough and honest about what dental care is needed and your options. I had my annual checkup and some fillings redone and everything went wonderfully. There was no pain and Dr. Afshar talked me through it all. I also like how they offer music or TV during the visit to make it more relaxing. I love this dentist and can’t say enough good things about this practice. And they take my insurance

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


After searching for a good orthodontist/dentist I finally  came a crossed Corbin Dental…
I have never been more impressed with how clean and welcoming a dental office. Its modern, beautiful and the staff is superb! I feel I struck gold finding them. Especially after my last dentist who charged me all limbs of my body for work done on my teeth.
I was having issues with my front bottom teeth. I was thinking I was going to have to get braces again because I failed to wear my retainer… But I model so this wouldn’t be acceptable. and they came up with a great solution and I walked in and out with a great corrected smile. I highly recommend them on environment, staff, cost and overall experience.

H. B. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Finding a good dentist in Los Angeles is about as hard as finding a good man. As far as dentists in the San Fernando Valley goes, this place is the best and I’m ready to settle down! They are the ABSOLUTE best! They are professional in every sense of the word! They are gentle in their approach and they always make sure I am comfortable. Sometimes I feel like Dr. Afshar has my records memorized because he knows exactly what’s going on when he looks at my teeth. These guys are extremely smart and helpful! Oh, and they do EXCELLENT work on my teeth. This place sets the bar in professional dentistry. I wouldn’t trust my teeth to anyone else!

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


First off I’d like to note I have been to many dentist/ortho’s that were a drag going into. Many places I had been previously were overpriced and all staff including front desk and dentist/ortho doctor included were all so grumpy/irritated, or uninformative and quick to hurry you out… Corbin Gentle Dental is the total opposite!! Everyone there is so great! My whole family goes here and we all have been very satisfied. Jackie is super informative and helpful. Dr. Afshar is so nice, and the two Dr. Zand’s (mother and daughter) are also great! Lets not forget their assistants, especially Matt! Not only does my whole family and I know we are getting great service from a tight knit team of professionals, but you can tell they are dedicated to their work and the dynamic of the whole staff has a great energy. Teamwork is key!! The place is very clean and organized, happy soothing music plays throughout the building. All procedures, such as cavity refills, extractions, cleanings, and ortho work has been done to our satisfaction as well. I got braces put on by Dr. Zand in Oct 2013, so I frequent here every month now.  I love going in and always feel great leaving. I am a full time student, so money for me is tight, but they are very competitive/super reasonably priced. The pricing was so good that I cancelled my dental insurance because I was paying more for it than what I would be paying out of pocket, even with ortho work!! You wont be let down here. My family and I highly recommend it. 🙂

I’ve been searching for a good dentist for a few years now and finally I found him. Finding a good dentist is not easy for someone who’s afraid of dentist visits. Dr Afshar was is the first dentist that didn’t use any scaring tactics. Unlike other dentists, he didn’t make up any problems I didn’t have. Already had one tooth extracted, and he planted the screw for an implant we’re working on.  For the first time I found myself going to the dentist without taking valume prior to the visit to help me relax. Dr. Afshar also worked with me on the price and I’m very happy with both his work and price. I highly recommend Dr. Afshar!  Wish I found him a few years ago

Nelson R. from Portsmouth, VA (Source: Yelp)


I have been in so far for an exam and a cleaning.  It was by far the easiest dental experience I have ever had.  The exam was painless and fast, and the cleaning was remarkably easy and effective.  Normally, I’m used to a cleaning that is arduous, long, and unpleasant.  Everyone on staff was knowledgeable and smart, and were able to talk to me about my dental care and what procedures needed to be done.  Excellent prices, excellent care, excellent people. Will be getting a few pre-cavities filled in the next few weeks.  Im hopeful that it will be a painless and easy experience!  Hooray for Gentle Dental!

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


Went in today for my first appointment and everyone was super nice! They made me feel comfortable and explained everything thoroughly. Such a HUGE difference between a good dentist and a bad one. My previous dentist was nothing compared to here. I look forward to my future appointments here! Great Job Corbin Gentle Dental! 🙂

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


The best dental experience i ever had!!! i woke up one day with an extreme pain in my wisdom tooth, and because of my bad experience with dentists which made me stay away from them for more than 5 years i tried tolerating the pain but it was unbearable, I finally decided to go. I have to admit that i was terrified, but after meeting Dr. Afshar who was super nice I knew i was in good hands, I had my extraction done in about 5 min. didn’t feel anything at all not even the shot he gave me before the extraction. and surprisingly  didn’t even need any pain killers after!! I loved how they have the rooms named and designed as  European Cities, they also offer you to watch a movie or listen to music during the procedure. Overall this place is above and beyond awesome, starting with Jacqueline at the front desk who greeted me with a warm smile, to Mathew and Peter (dental assistants) and last but not least Dr. Afshar who gave me this wonderful experience, and understood how i felt without me saying a word, and was very GENTLE during the procedure. I’m defiantly going back!!!   Thank you Peter( best friend/dental assistant) for referring me, and giving me this great experience 🙂

I had a great experience they got me in at the last minute and fixed the tooth that was bothering me. I will definitely be using them from now on and refer them to my friends and family. Highly recommend them.

Pakala K. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


After many years of abuse to my teeth i lost a bet to the wife and went to the dentists. I was super afraid of going but after my first few visits I was a believer again. Thanks to Dr afshar and Matt I can smile again without worries. Gentle is an understatement. They let me watch Netflix while getting my procedure done. The hardest part about the whole experience was trying not to laugh while watching a comedy.
Much mahalo guys !

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


I don’t mind giving these people my money. (I sometimes feel like tipping them a little extra. haha.)  ;D Wonderful business.  Wonderful people. Wonderful communication. Great hours. Everything and everyone is so good. I grab a handful of their business cards each visit so I can make sure the people around me get the pleasure of going to the best dental office in the county.

K. S. from Woodland Hls, CA (Source: Yelp)


I needed two teeth extracted and dreaded having to do it.  I went to GD because I needed a new dentist immediately, they were local and the online reviews were great.  As soon as I walked into the office, I had a great feeling, from reception to Dr. Afshar himself. Best of all, I had both extractions with only a bit of pressure and no pain, and was out of there in little more than half an hour.  All in all, BEST experience I could have asked for, and I have found a new home for future work and cleanings.

Alin G. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


As an individual who is terrified of the dentist, I must say my experiences with Dr. Afshar and Dr. Zand were painless. I had a cleaning, filling and extraction done by Dr. Afshar… and a root canal done by Dr. Zand…. both Dr.’s were extremely patient with me and were so friendly that it eased my fear! My teeth feel cleaner and healthier than ever. Overall, I had a great experience. This office is absolutely beautiful, the staff is friendly, and the fact that it is a family run practice makes it a warm atmosphere. I will definitely be coming here from now on.

Jay P. from Agoura Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Afshar and his staff are top notch. I have been coming to him for over 5 years, and couldn’t be happier with their service. I recently had an implant done by him and I was pleasantly surprised at how painless and easy the whole process was. If you’re looking for a great dentist, don’t hesitate to visit them.

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


I hope this review will help those who fear seeing a dentist. My first dental experience was when I was in my early 20’s. My left molar was giving me so much pain that my mother ‘forced’ me to go to the dentist. She chose a dentist for me and I went. It was a horrible experience that I never wanted to go through ever again. Fast forward to now, I am in my late 30’s. My right molar was never removed. I have endured pain and suffering over the years in fear of ever stepping foot in another dental office. My husband got worried when I couldn’t tolerate the pain anymore coz I had splitting headaches, I couldn’t swallow and I’m just downright cranky. So he recommended Corbin Gentle Dental. My first visit was a consultation and a plan on how to proceed. You can’t imagine just how nervous I was. They had to recommend a surgeon to remove my infected tooth. After that procedure, I had go back to do deep cleaning. Dr. Afshar attended to me. I told him about my fears and he could tell just how nervous I was because I was perspiring in the well air-conditioned cubicle I was assigned. Dr. Afshar made me relax by explaining the procedure, talking to me about what he was going to do and that I could always tell him to stop if I couldn’t tolerate the pain. Once the procedure started, I hardly felt anything. It could be the topical but he has the lightest touch, in my opinion. He would stop to check on how I was doing, asking along the way if I was still comfortable and I was. I may have still been nervous but I slowly learned to breathe and relax during the procedure. My third visit, I still had the initial nervousness (I’m guessing is more psychological than anything) but as soon as I sat down and knew what to expect, I was more relaxed. The procedure went smoothly. Instructions were clear on what I needed to do and all I had to do was follow it and to see him again to check on how things are going along. Today was that day, my gums are healing nicely and I was told that if I continue with what I have been doing that I may not have to do deep cleaning again for some time, just quick check-ups. They definitely live up to their name. I may have had a bad experience to begin with years ago, but I definitely am not afraid now. I have another appointment to take care of other stuff and now I look forward to it. I want to have healthy gums and teeth but have always ignored the aches and pains for fear of a previous experience — no more. I highly recommend Corbin Gentle Dental. They’re not as expensive as you think and they are definitely 100%, no BS — gentle in every way.

M. P. from West Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about this office! Dr. Afshar is the best! His staff is so attentive and make you feel so comfortable. Dr. Afshar has amazing bedside manner. They have a variety of entertainment options while you’re getting dental work. Highly recommend this won’t be disappointed.

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


I love Dr. Afshar… seriously.   He explains things in a way that I always understand what he is saying.  He never try’s to sell me on something I don’t need and if he ever did suggest something, I know at this point he genuinely thinks I need it.   When I changed jobs and in turn got new insurance I even upgraded to PPO so that I could keep him as my dentist (it was worth it).

Lis B. from Hillsboro, OR (Source: Yelp)


I love this place! Been coming for years.  Moved out of Tarzana but still drive the distance to see Dr. Afshar! He’s very gentle and patient. His staff is amazing too! I would definitely recommend this place for those that don’t like the dentist!

Tim H. from Rio Rancho, NM (Source: Yelp)


My appreciation for Dr. Afshar continues to grow!  As a result of my first visit, I opted to go with a dental implant, which means the original tooth has to be extracted; something that had been a bad experience for me in the past with my wisdom teeth.  Not the case this time!  Calm office.  Gentle, thorough work.  Minimal post-op pain.  Additionally, Dr. Afshar removed an impacted tooth for my wife, who has had even worse experiences with dentists than I have.  She LOVES the professionalism and calm demeanor of everyone associated with this practice!  She also had an extremely positive experience with her extraction, especially with pain management! I know drive time is important for people, but practices like this are hard to find.  I’d willingly drive an hour if I needed to just for their services!  Best dental practice that my wife and I have ever experienced!

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


I can only say amazing things about this place. I love the whole office! To start off it is very clean and well kept. It is also a very professional environment. The doctors all have great people skills which is an unusual trait to find in dentist as I have visited quite a few and it was not always pleasant. The pricing is fair, and you get amazing results and to be honest, you get what you pay for. I shopped around before I came to them and did my research and they are reasonably priced. I love working with Dr. Afshar he walks his patients through every step of the way which is very important to me as a patient. You can tell he gives above 100% to the patients in his work. He is also a bit of a perfectionist which is not a bad trait in someone when they are doing work on you! He checks in during treatments and procedures to make sure if you are doing ok or need a break. He really puts the gentle in Gentle dental! A true MVP. I can not say enough good things about this doctor. I also love all the assistants because it feels like they know the patients and they do! I always work with Matt who is uber professional and is always friendly. Matt is consistent and confident in his work while assisting the Doctors. I call them the dream team. I have had fillings and extractions and Dr. Afshar made it seem so effortless when I was nervous and anxious. He is also very good at relating with his patients. I am now in the process of orthodontic treatment with Dr. Zand. Since I am new to braces I have been having trouble with my wire and they are always glad to help if I need it. I am glad to be taken care of by a team of true professionals and I highly recommend this office for all dental needs. I am always talking about Corbin Gentle Dental and all of my friends and family. All are excited to go get their work done there. Bonus for patients: They offer Netflix and Pandora to keep you distracted during procedures. Always a plus!

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


This Dental Practice is by far the best I have ever encountered. Everything about this place is superior to every Dentist I have ever seen in the past. From the very first visit; The Office itself was clean, organized and welcoming. The office staff is articulate and accommodating with everything from scheduling to payment plans and explaining the process in its entirety. They are always prompt, organized and on time, not to mention very, very friendly and blatantly transparent about how straight and clean their intentions are as a business. The biggest perk to me though is The Dentist Himself. Dr. Afshar is by far one of the most professional, intelligent and articulate doctors that I have ever worked with. He has a very no-nonsense, results oriented approach but also a cool, calm and laid-back demeanor. He’a simply and solid, well-rounded guy. He prioritizes my comfort and education on the procedures above all, which is very important to me. He and his staff really take the time to explain everything to me about the process and options in a very coherent way. Nothing happens here until YOU feel well-versed on it all and comfortable about moving forward. YOU pull the trigger and feel in control about everything that happens. This dental office is the first EVER to have made me feel truly educate on my oral health, it’s maintenence and longevity. I really can’t say enough about how much Corbin Gentle Dental has transformed the “dreaded dental work” into something not only manageable, but enjoyable as well. I don’t easily hand out compliments but this place deserves every one a then some!

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


I have been a patient at Corbin Gentle Dental for about 10 months for orthodontics treatment. They are really great with maintaining a relationship with their clients. They know your name, you don’t feel as if you are just another customer. The staff is great they seem to always be happy and the assistants are knowledgeable and make the tightening process (taking off and the putting on of the ties) painless. They have great pricing and they don’t nickle and dime you after you have broken something. They also don’t  over diagnose you like my previous dentist (he said I had six cavities and i was suspicious so i went here for a second opinion and it turned out i only had one). The office is comfortable, it is modern and clean on the inside, they have a variety of technology for dentistry at their disposal. I didn’t know what to expect when getting braces but, they have made is easy and convenient for me. This is a great office and I highly recommend it to anyone.

Gary A. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Both Dr Afshar & Dr Zand are kind, compassionate and gentle dentists. I have been privileged to work with them on many removable dental cases, and the care and attention to detail of their work is second to none. Take it from someone in the dental industry, these folks are first rate !!

Gaby J. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist I have ever been to. Dr Afshar saw me today when I had a emergency and was super kind and quick in his work. He very attentive and made sure I was comfortable. The office is super cute and they actually let you watch movies or listen to music on personal headphones while they work on your teeth. Would recommend this office to any friend.

Jessica G. from Wake Forest, NC (Source: Yelp)


All the reviews on this place are  definitely spot on! Everyone here is wonderful from the moment you walk in first meeting Cindy at the front office to the dental assistant and both dentist they all have your best interest in mind! The ease of setting appointment getting prices having your work done asking questions they are on top of it all and they make everything so easy and comfortable! Earlier today I had to have 4 teeth pulled I was so nervous but thanks to Dr Afshar everything went perfect I hardly felt the shots and so far I am not having any pain !! He did a great job !
