Dr Sazgar helped finish my tooth implant and did a fantastic job! I highly recommend her! She and her staff always made me a priority no matter how many times I came in or called. From the office staff to the hygienists and dental assistants to the doctor herself, everyone always made me feel right at home!

Dr. Terteryan is a knowledgeable , skilled and proficient dentist. The staff —both front office and back—is courteous and friendly. The office is clean and the environment is warm & welcoming. I highly recommend Couture Smiles—you will not be disappointed! Thank you for the excellent care.

Lisa S. from San Marcos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am not a calm dental patient. I was extremely happy to find that the entire staff made my many visits as enjoyable as possible. I love my hygienist! She is friendly and professional. She is also very patient with my many issues. All of the assistants are amazing. They work so hard to make sure that you are relaxed and comfortable. Dr. T took the time to explain and allowed me many breaks (I have TMJ) I would highly recommend this office. Although I prefer NOT to have any work done, it’s awesome to know that when I do, I won’t need to worry about the care I receive.

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


I have been to a couple of dental practices and I can say that Dr. T is by far the best dentist out there!! He is knowlageable, friendly and very funny! Ive been a patient here for two years and all I have to say is the people at this office care about your well being and esp. oral health. Oh and his hygienists are very nice and up to date with the latest research, esp. his hygienist Ellen she is very friendly and thorough. Hands down great office and great staff!!

Amazing Dentist and staff. Best experience I’ve ever had at any dental office. The staff was kind enough help me with my baby and two kids so we could all get cleanings on the same day. I am so fearful to them and highly recommend this practice.

E. C. from Lake Balboa, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


In all the years of going to the dentist I have never had an experience like the one at couture smiles. Although I’ve only been a patient for a year, I can honestly say Dr. Terteryan is the best dentist I have ever had. He is professional, personable and honest. His quality of work is a cut above the rest. There is a certain level of comfort when the patient, hygienist and dentist rapport makes you feel like you’re more than just a client. The staff is always so welcoming and helpful from the moment you walk in to the moment you walk out. I feel fortunate to have FINALLY found such a great dental office.

Martin M. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


My excellent oral surgeon, Dr. Jensvold, referred me to Dr. Terteryan when I need to get cosmetic laminates on my front teeth, which had been injured in a  Brazilian jiu jitsu mishap.  My teeth now look better than ever.  I’m going out to get some head shots done … I’m ready for Hollywood!  Thanks, Dr. T!!

I love this office – the staff is great, everything happens in a timely manner, the staff team together in a very supportive way to the benefit of the patients. Every detail is attended to and the dentist is honest, competent and supportive. Thank you!!

I was recommend to Contour Smiles, from a close friend. As soon as I walked in, Mayle and Irma at the desk greeted me properly with a smile, I was also greeted by Jan and Paige! I had my cleaning done first and the hygienist Nisha was so accommodating and gentle. Listening to my dental history and my current concerns regarding my teeth, I was introduce Dr. Teteryan who performed a thorough exam giving me several options for treatment plan to give me what I wanted. Dr. Gordon stopped in to collaborate and came up with a game plan regarding implant treatment for my missing teeth. Moving forward I can now have the healthy good looking smile I’ve always wanted. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tonya P. from Hidden Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found Dr. Armen by word-of-mouth… and he is excellent. This was probably the best experience I’ve had at a dentist. I moved here from Ohio and needed a new dentist because my front veneer fell off. He fixed me up as good as new. The whole staff is very friendly and makes you feel right at home. I love the fact that he explains everything he’s going to do before he does it and makes sure it’s ok with you. They walk you through everything. Also, the office is very bright and clean. I highly recommend Dr. Armen and his staff. It is nice to have a dentist who cares as much about my comfort and is so good.

My family of 6 are have been going to Couture Dental Group for 20+ years. Whenever I walk in door the gals checking you in are kind, and always smiling, too a thorough cleaning and dental care I’ve been completely satisfied with every visit. This team of professionals are exceptional with excellent quality of care. I highly recommend Couture Dental Group.

Long term patient and constantly impressed with the care and service. Great for cosmetic as well as serious issues, also for general care and maintenance. Friendly office staff works well with insurance or self-pay patients. Convenient location. Good pain management with techniques to eliminate pain from all procedures (but not always follow up pain!). Highly recommended.

Steve L. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been seeing Dr. Terteryan for several years and I just saw Dr. Sazgar who has taken over his practice. The hygienist had found a crack in a tooth and said I might need a crown. Dr. Sazgar examined me and said she didn’t think a crown was necessary and that it should be watched to see what happens. She was extremely friendly and easy to talk to and took all the time necessary. It’s comforting to be in the hands of a dentist I trust.

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


I had my doubts about this place but Dr T is incredible! I was referred to him by my primary doctor. He’s extremely sweet, detailed, honest & his staff is incredible. I feel very comfortable with Dr T & everyone at this office. Every time I walk into the office I feel welcomed, make myself a coffee from their self serve bar & grab a bottled water. These guys are amazing. Highly recommend!

Audie Q. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Terteryan came recommended by my own primary doctor, which was the first reason I trusted Dr T. Like many people, dental procedure make me nervous. Dr. T made me feel calm and comfortable. He talked me through the process and checked my comfort level every step of the way. His staff is also very friendly and nice. I highly recommend Dr. T. I had my silver fillings removed and he uses procedures to ensure the fillings are not accidentally ingested.

Elea O. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


YOU WOULD BE HARD PRESSED TO FIND A BETTER DENTIST. This review is coming from someone who had her entire upper mouth redone. All back crowns and 6 veneers on front teeth. I AM SO HAPPY WITH MY SERVICES I DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO START. Firstly, on my initial visit, in a matter of a few minutes Dr. T corrected a bite that other dentists had told me couldn’t be fixed. And the same day my chewing was balanced, and tension in jaw relieved. Then we proceeded to replace old crowns. The Lab dr. T uses for crowns uses the same beautiful material used for veneers and is metal free, which i was ecstatic about. First crown came back, and the color wasn’t and exact match, so Dr. T promptly sent it back. He will not settle for anything less than perfection and has eyes like a hawk.

Kathleen C. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gordon has been my periodontist for more than 20 years and he is amazing!! He recommended that I see Dr. Terteryan for some general dentistry and I am so happy that I did. Dr. T and his staff were so fantastic! They made me feel very comfortable and did a great job resetting an implant crown and with my cleaning. I’ve always been afraid of the dentist and having work done here has alleviated all of my fears. I highly recommend this dental group for all of your dental needs. They are true artists and do beautiful work.

Who loathes a trip to the dentist? This guy! Who has nothing but good things to say about Couture Smiles? This guy!! I’ve been to dentists in the past and I’m convinced they took pleasure in causing you to make the most uncomfortable facial expressions when elbow deep in rearranging your mouth! This place really is great and the office decor momentarily distracts from the reality that cold metal tools and a chair are waiting for you on the other side. Professional, friendly, and just an all around wonderful staff. Thank you all for your commitment to helping me become a Colgate model again!

ON Tuesday March 17 Dr Sazgar Made a special trip to her office from her home to do a critical repair for me. I had the 4 tooth crown on my front lower bridge come off. It left me with a huge gap as well as two sharp pins that held them in place. In this critical time with the virus concerns being high, it was a exceeding thoughtful thing to do. Many Dentists have closed their practice for several weeks and I had no where to turn. The repair being made quickly allowed me to return to my life. I have been a patient of this office for may years and have always found them to be quite competent and friendly. Jack L.

Olga G. from Agoura Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr Terteryan for years and have had the most friendly and by far the best professional treatment . And Dr Gordon is such a gentle Periodintist. Would recommend this office to all.

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


Uggh. The Dentist! Going to a dentist is scary. Going to a cosmetic dentist to scarier. Going to a cosmetic dentist to REDO my veneers — well, let’s just say I was shaking with trepidation! My prior dentist rushed the process. My veneers were off color and too large. On a scale of horrible to perfection, it was mediocre. Who wants mediocre for a smile? I was referred to Dr. Terteryan and went in for a consultation. He spent more than 90 minutes with me and explained my options, including braces. More importantly, he asked an orthodontist from his building and another dentist from his office for second opinions. I left his office confused but armed with information. He didn’t pressure me to make an immediate decision. Also, he wasn’t thinking about making money. He told me what I’ve known all along– the best solution is 6-8 months of braces. If I choose to go with cosmetic surgery, he would use the best resources to give me a natural, comfortable smile. I decided against braces. I’m 36 and not about to go into hiding for a year. Dr. Terteryan and his team provided unparalleled service. They understood my work schedule and accommodating me accordingly. They guided me when they realized I was confused and not ready to make a final decision. They were patient. They were knowledgeable. They were personable.

Dr. T & Dr. Gordon are the best dentists. I’ve been going there for years and years. They’ve always been exceptionally nice and straightforward with all my work. I wouldn’t go anywhere else.

I was impressed by the friendly staff at Couture Smiles. From the moment I walked in, they greeted me with enthusiasm, and are genuinely nice people. They have the new digital x-ray machines that produce super sharp digital photos that can be enlarged to the size of the computer screen, so you can see exactly what the problem is. We were able to spot nerve infections in my teeth that my previous dentist missed because they use the old film x-rays that are the size of a postage stamp. This large size allowed us to see the source of the pain in my teeth,, and now I’ll be going in for further work. Dr. Terteryan is a very measured, calm and professional dentist, who explained clearly to me what my issue is, and is making every effort to preserve my teeth.

I was a new patient to the office after my previous dentist retired. Dr. T was highly recommended by a good friend who rairly recommends anyone unless they are VERY GOOD. Although I only had a routine dental exam and teeth cleaned and full mouth x-rays, I was very impressed with the office and the office staff. The whole office has a very calm, and very relaxed and very efficient environment. Dr. T was very friendly and noted a few things in my mouth and took the time to explain his findings. The office was very nice and the office staff was super friendly. The hygienist was great (very gentle). Love the TV’s while getting treatment! Overall great 1st experience!

Julie S. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience with your staff and Dr. from the first phone call to the moment I walked out the door was superb. I was treated like a queen and felt very comforted by the entire staff. I never like going to the dentist and this time was no exception. Having my teeth worked on is torture for me in that the whole time it feels like fingernails on a chalkboard and I’m holding my body with that kind of tension for the duration of the exam and cleaning. So, you can imagine how much worse it would be if the staff and Dr. were unpleasant. So thank you for making what would normally be a challenging experience a pleasurable one. I will be back.

Michelle G. from Cincinnati, OH (Source: Yelp)


I traveled 2,000 miles from Ohio and it was definitely worth it. Everyone compliments me on having the prettiest smile in Cincinnati. Dr Terteryan is a wonderful artist with a light touch so you never feel him as he works. I love smiling now and showing off my gorgeous teeth!

I’m impressed with their professionalism and service. Wait time is minimal. Quality of work has been tested over time as I have been with them for several years now. Thank you Couture Smiles. Because of you, I smile more 🙂

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


I wanted to share my experience with Dr Terteryan. I kept breaking my upper anterior teeth due to my grinding. After meeting with Dr T., we decided to do 8 veneers on my upper teeth. Being a cosmetic dentist myself, I had done a lot of research on who I would let work on my teeth. Believe it or not I am also nervous being a patient! Much easier giving a shot than receiving it! I was very nervous, however Dr T was so caring, patient & incredibly cognizant. I am so happy I decided to go with Dr T. My veneers look so beautiful. I couldn’t ask for more. I am incredibly happy with the outcome & it’s all thanks to Dr T. As a cosmetic dentist, I would absolutely recommend.

Ron Cammorata (Source: Google)


I thought Dr T’s knowledge, professionalism and patient nurturing throughout a procedure could not be matched. Yet, I was wrong. Dr Sazgar was every bit the equal to Dr T. The crown replacement procedure and cavity removal was the first service performed on me by Dr Sazgar. I live in Aspen so flying into town and having her do this procedure was anxiety producing. I was skeptical and believed no one could replace Dr T. Yet, I was wrong.

Cristina G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Google)


LOVE love love Dr. T and his friendly, caring, accommodating staff! I’m always wary when it comes to a dental visit- I’ve been scammed in the past.. being charged for services and items I didn’t need to begin with. I’ve never felt that way at Couture Smiles. It’s a relief being able to confide in someone with something so important as your smile! Pareya is my dental hygienist and does such a wonderful job. I leave the office with a bright & clean smile every single time! Recently got my wisdom teeth extracted by Dr. Gordon and the process couldn’t have gone smoother. The surgery I was dreading really wasn’t so bad after all. Thank you Couture Smiles for restoring my faith in dentistry & providing the best service with every single visit!

Julia W. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely love it here. Everyone in the office takes such great care of you and really takes the time to assess any issues and provide solutions. My family and I are all patients here and we have had nothing but positive and comfortable experiences. We love Ellen and highly recommend her if you are going in for a cleaning!

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


I get nervous when I go to the dentist! I always go to my cleaning appointments regularly. My hygienist is Pareya. She is fantastic! She does a wonderful job & is very gentle! On my last appointment I was given the opportunity to try a new dentist in the office. His name is Dr. Salmassian. It turned out that I needed to have 2 old crowns replaced! I just finished today having my new crowns put in. I was so nervous about having my old crowns removed but Dr. Sal was so gentle & made the experience so much easier than I believed it would be! He was incredibly concerned that I was at all times during the procedure comfortable!!! I love all the staff in the office! The girls up front are so friendly & lovely! Dr. Sal’s Irish nurse is THE BEST! Sorry I can’t remember her name right now but she is the dentist’s assistant & she is so kind & patient! I highly recommend Couture Smiles in Woodland Hills! Thank you to everyone there for taking such good care of me!! Love, Robin

Dr. Terteryan is the best in the biz. My smile looks amazing again and I am so happy with his work. The staff here is also so warm and friendly. So happy I found this office.. five stars!!!

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


I have been a patient at Couture Smiles for about 3 years now and I absolutely love the entire team! I have had an implant placed, crowns redone, wisdom teeth extracted, and preventive treatment care all at Couture Smiles. Dr. Terteryan & Dr. Gordon have a true gift in dentistry and it shows in their work. They are both perfectionist and very detail oriented which I greatly appreciate. They are very knowledgable, and always take the time to explain every single procedure beforehand. Mayte & Melanie in the front office are always willing to help patients coordinating appointments, understanding treatment plans, and explaining cost. The Couture Smiles Team takes pride in delivering quality patient care! The whole team is truly phenomenal & I highly recommend Couture Smiles for all dental work!

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


I can’t not say enough good things about Dr. Terteryan and all of the staff and doctors. I’ve been with them since the beginning. I’m the person that gets nervous going to the dentist and they always make me feel at ease. Whenever I have anything I’m worried about with my teeth Dr. Terteryan is always available. Dr. Gordon is doing my implant and is another great part of this practice. The dental hygienist are so thorough and are so sweet. The front office staff are always happy and helpful with everything. The dental assistants are the best.
Love this place and highly recommend using them.
