I love this dental office!! I was referred here by my husband and had an amazing experience. Everyone is very friendly and you can tell they all love their jobs. I had a cleaning and some fillings done here and everything was painless. I also did the zoom whitening and had really great results. Dr. G is nice and personable and doesn’t make you feel judged like other dentists I’ve been to. I’ve definitely found my dentist for life and would recommend this office to everyone.

I made an appointment with Dr. Ghassemi after a bond had fallen out of my tooth. I was also informed that I would need a filling for said tooth. Throughout my visit everything was thoroughly explained and I was asked if I needed clarification or had questions. I haven’t been this pleased with a dentist in a very long time. I fully intend to return for any future dental work. And to top it off, my tooth looks perfect! Thank you!

Dr. Ghassemi and the Culver Marina Dental Group is by far the best dental office I’ve ever been to. The entire experience was so relaxing and I can tell that they really care about their patients. I highly recommend them to anyone with any dental anxiety looking for high-quality dental work. I can’t say enough about how great they are! You must see them for yourself!

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


I chose to come Culver Marina dental group a few months ago. I came here after reading all the great reviews and because they also cover dental-cal insurance. Dr. Pegah Ghassemi is wonderful, she works efficiently and is very informative. The staff is equally wonderful. Every time I come in for my appointment they make me feel welcomed. Awesome place with awesome people. Highly recommended.

Dr. Ghassemi is personable, professional and very good at explaining procedures. I appreciated her time going over my dental history and explaining why I probably had conflicting messages from prior dentists on beat practices. I felt 100% comfortable switching to her office and moving forward with a treatment plan. Her office staff are efficient and personable as well. I highly recommend Culver Marina Dental Group

Marcus H. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son just had a dental appointment for the first time in 2 years. After having a couple of bad experiences with other dentist we are really happy to have found this place. Dr Bahkhtiari has great bedside manners and is genuinely interested in improving your dental health. All staff is very friendly and helpful and i highly recommend this place.

Aaron M. from Venice, Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


Making my appointment as a new patient was quick and smooth. Before I knew it was time for my X-rays, exams and cleaning (all of which were incredibly thorough and comfortable compared to past experiences I’ve had. They spent extra time on problem areas and removing stains that other places had skipped over. The doctor was friendly, but more importantly clear and straight forward about my smile and what steps I needed to take to protect my teeth. They worked with me to try and make the visit as affordable as possible. I can’t wait to continue building a relationship with all the kind people here and improve my smile. Please give them a try, you won’t regret it!

Dr. Ghassemi and staff were just all around awesome. I had neglected my dental care for awhile but they were able to painlessly get me back on track. Everyone was very nice and helpful. Dr. Ghassemi has a great sense of humor! Thank you!

I needed some dental work done and found this office online due to all the 5 star reviews. After having some work done I can happily confirm they are the truth! Fantastic dentist; very gentle with her work and pays attention to detail. The people who do cleanings & rest of the staff also make sure things are correct & you feel really comfortable. I can’t imagine going anywhere else!

Vanessa K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love coming here. Truly! Dr. Ghassemi is professional, honest, welcoming and sweet. I always feel she has my best interest in mind — from time management to pricing to what procedures she recommends I may need immediately to others that she mentions for the future. I never feel pressure and I always feel well taken care of! The offices are newly decorated, comfortable and clean, and her staff couldn’t be nicer. Highly recommend!

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


Without question the best dental work and guidance I’ve received.  The attention to detail alongside the warm and friendly staff has driven me to write my 2nd yelp review.  It is such a rarity these days to have these kinds of experiences with a company or service provider and I am feeling very grateful that I was referred their way earlier this year. Pegah and her entire team have been absolutely awesome for both my surgery and standard dental care!  I am totally committed to being a patient here! Thank you again for all of the extra attention and awesome care!

Exceptional dental care, couldn’t be happier with the service I received. Three visits later I got all my silver fillings replaced with tooth colored composite and a deep filling replaced with no issues. Highly recommend Dr. Pegah and her amazing team!

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


First off i would like to say thanks to doctor Pegah and her team for doing an awesome job on my cavities yesterday. i have been terrified of the dentist  for many years due to a bad experience, but doctor Pegah has changed that for me and i am very appreciative of everything her and her team has done for me. The work she did is phenomenal! I can’t thank her enough. The customer service was awesome. Right from the moment you walk in you’re treated like family. These are amazing people. I can honestly say this is the only dental office i will ever go.

Kelsey J. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghassemi is hands down the best dentist I’ve ever been to! I had bonding previously that was stained and cracked. I wanted a healthier, more vibrant smile so decided to replace my old bonding with veneers. After doing extensive research on experienced cosmetic dentists in the LA area, I decided to book a cleaning and consultation at Culver Marina Dental Group. When initially meeting with Dr. Ghassemi we discussed the benefits of veneers, the process, and my options for color, shape, and size. I felt like a kid in a candy shop! I get to pick out my dream teeth to create my dream smile that will last me a lifetime! The process was about 4 weeks from start to finish. I chose to have 8 veneers done because I wanted a full bright smile. I was also able to go down to the veneer lab and talk to the veneer manufacturer about the style, color, and size I wanted. He then custom makes them using the highest quality veneer brand (yes, I also did my research on brands as well because I was terrified of having horse teeth)! I just went in yesterday for my final appointment to have my bite adjusted. These veneers feel 100% like my teeth and I have no discomfort at all. I love my new smile and have that new sense of confidence when I smile that I was looking for. Compared to other doctors in the LA area she is priced VERY VERY fair, especially for how knowledgeable and talented she is. They have never kept me waiting more than 5 minutes at the most for an appointment.  I appreciate that they’re always good about being on time. The dental hygensits are so sweet and very professional. They remember your name and always make you smile. The office also was just remodeled so it has a very clean, modern, sleek feel which makes it that much more enjoyable to spend a good amount of time in. I will be a lifetime patient of Dr. Ghassemi and will refer all my friends to Culver Marina Dental. I posted before and after photos that I asked Dr. G to send me. BIG DIFFERENCE, right? I am in love!!

Kathy-Kerrie S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Omg!! I love the dentist! Who says that? Dr. G and her staff are amazing!
Besides being beautiful, she is the most knowledgeable and gifted dentist I have ever had.
She is very reasonably priced and is always conscience of my financial situation. She even performed my root canal and did a better job than the high priced Endodontist I had gone to in the past! Once she is your dentist, you will no longer have to worry about non essential referrals. My last guy was always sending me out for a periodontist referral and then An Endodontist referral, etc…. because he was networking with other dentists. That is fine to network, but I JUst couldn’t afford unnecessary treatments, Dr. G will let you know honestly what you really can live with and what needs to be done. Now my kids go to her and my husband even left his dentist of 25 years to be seen by Dr.G Do yourself a favor and just book your next cleaning with her.

Since the first minute I walked into Dr. Ghassemi’s office, I felt very comfortable. Everything is very clean. She explains things slowly and in a way that I could understand. She is exceptional with her hands. I barely felt the anesthesia despite needing many injections. I was pleasantly surprised by the fact that I felt very little discomfort in all the visits I’ve had. I cannot imagine ever going to another Dentist after getting treated the way I did. Dr. Ghassemi’s knowledge, professionalism, and communication skills are not something you encounter often. I highly recommend her and feel very lucky to have found her.

Blake J. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ghassemi is well qualified to practice dentistry on any and all kids from 1-92. It is apparent that she cares about each and every one of her patients equally, we are all treated with respect, and with the highest quality standards that Dr. Ghassemi demands from the entire practice. Dr. Ghassemi exceeds expectations with general dentistry, however, her cosmetic dentistry expertise is exceptional (Veneers, Whitening, etc.) and I sincerely believe that she’s responsible for a large portion of the beautiful smiles of Hollywood’s elite leading A-lister’s Dr. Ghassemi is also very beautiful, you could literally tell your child you’re taking them to see Princess Jasmine from the Disney film Aladdin! Love Blake, One happy satisfied patient!

Positive experience at this dental office for my son. The staff is very friendly and attentive. The treatment was explained thoroughly. What I like most is that they put me at ease (I have my own phobia of dental offices). Kid friendly!

Ben Miskie (Source: Google)


I completely trust her and her approach. She recently took over the Marina Dental Group practice and its like night and day. Have had cleanings and fillings. She’s easy to talk to, has real talent at what she does(she’s fixed other dentists work), open about her thought process and actions to take moving forward. Her office has new appointment systems now that send email reminders, and also has WIFI! Her transparency, communication skills, concern, have impressed me and I can easily recommend her. Updated Review: added some new pics. She’s still great, and she has really transformed this practice she took over. Check out the latest pics vs my earlier pics.

Michelle C. from Tulsa, OK (Source: Yelp)


I really enjoy my experiences; at culver marina dental group (staff) they are really are so patient; and always simultaneously meet my needs or requests as a client. They took me on as a (newcomer). I really appreciate thier efforts in my dental care needs.
I was able to email them a picture of a troublesome tooth and they responded with a quick response. Very professional services. Kind people (reality)

Kristina B. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a very good experience at this dental office. Dr. Ghassemi and the staff are all very accommodating and nice. I walked in as a new patient and was seen right away. Dr. Ghassemi explained everything I needed very well and I left feeling like I understood everything that was going on in my mouth. They even took pictures inside my mouth so I could see all the teeth they needed to fix. I never felt any pressure from the doctor to do work, she just really wanted me to be informed and I appreciate that.   Etni explained my insurance to me and everything about my financial responsibility was very clear.  Before coming here I felt very nervous about seeing a dentist but now I’m relieved I have found an office I feel comfortable with! The best part is they have free parking which is a big plus in LA. I look forward to coming back here!!

I make a commute from the valley to see my favorite dentist. Dr G and her team are very welcoming. She handles honesty with velvet gloves. Her advice and encouragement has already helpped me improve my dental hygiene. I’ve referred a number of good friends who too have had great experiences.

Sharon Gelfand (Source: Google)


Grateful for my friend’s recommendation when I asked her 2 years ago if she knew of a good dental practice!! The first time that I walked into Culver Marina Dental Group’s office I felt at ease. Extremely clean in the front & back, a calming waiting room & a helpful staff. Culver Marina Dental Group have advocated for me, for deep cleaning procedures which I really needed! The staff is supportive, friendly & caring. Most important of all, a trust Culver Marina Dental Group!!

Hayley V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had such a great experience with Dr. Ghassemi and her staff! Everyone was very nice and I really like that they talked about preventative care with me since it had been a while since I had a teeth cleaning. Dr. Ghassemi did a really thorough job on my teeth cleaning, checking in with me periodically to see if I was still comfortable. She was very transparent about costs and helped me prioritize what needed to be done, keeping my budget in mind. I would highly recommend this dental office! They are very nice and trustworthy!!

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


Our family’s dentist is Great. Everyone in the office is excellent and our whole family feels well taken care of.  My dental Hygienist today was Shauntelle, she pays special attention to detail. Rosa is very sweet and has a welcoming presence. Dr. Pegah is no nonsense and will tell you exactly what you need for your oral health. They text you reminders to come and have the nicest reception personnel. We moved and were considering changing Dentists but will continue to come here, it’s worth the drive.

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


Love this dental office! I can’t say enough good things about Dr. G and her wonderful team. That was easily the BEST dentist experience I’ve had. They frequently asked me how my comfort level was during my visits. Overall I’m very happy with the service!! Dr. G is the best!
Highly recommended!

Bob M. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


By far the best Dentist experience I have had to date. I was recommended to go here by a friend and boy was it worth it! I finally feel like I found the right Dentist in Dr Pegah Ghassemi. They took full X-rays of my teeth, did a deep cleaning, and  a comprehensive exam of my teeth. My teeth are now super clean!!! I highly recommend going to this dentist office for any/all of your dental needs. Thank you to the staff at Culver Marina Dental Group and Dr. Pegah Ghassemi!

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


Dr. Ghassemi blew my mind I had been using another dentist who did a extraction and flipper and I was in pain weeks later and lost my flipper right before I had to fly to a meeting . This was my front tooth So embarrassing. I left a message for Dr. Ghassemi to call . I have had her work on my husband and other family members and they loved her . She called me back and all her staff had gone home but she stayed late to see me and did an amazing job with my teeth and saw why I was in pain because the last dr didn’t get the root out and it got infected now my teeth look great and all my pain is gone . I love this dentist and want to go to her for life . She is very talented and has amazing compassion and wonderful communication And loads of integrity. Thank you so very much Dr. Pegah Ghassemi .

I have been going to Culver Marina Dental Group for over six years now because they are genuinely the best. I found this office after a terrible experience at Western Dental and immediately felt a sense of comfort knowing I was in good hands. The staff is always welcoming and warming; they explain every procedure before doing anything, and depending on the situation, options are given to accommodate each person’s needs better. Three years ago I moved to the valley, and due to the distance, I checked out a few different dentists in the area with decent reviews. After receiving bad service by rough doctors and being overcharged, I had to go back. Dr. Pegah Ghassemi is excellent, in my opinion, because she is compassionate, dedicated, and reasonable. I hate going to the dentist, but going here makes my experience that much better.

Culver Marina Dental Group is the absolute best dentist office I’ve ever been to. Doctor G is amazing; she helped take care of my teeth when I hadn’t been to the dentist in several years. Doctors/techs/office assistants are all very friendly and professional. You’ll never feel stressed about going to the dentist again.

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


I could not be happier with Dr. Ghassemi and the entire staff at this office.  It’s
an incredible value to find an intelligent, patient and compassionate doctor who
honestly cares about your health.  All of my questions were addressed to my complete satisfaction and my future care instructions were clear and concise.  The staff is both professional and personal, superb in every respect.  I watched a small child walk in with fear and leave with a smile, fantastic work doctor!  I certainly will not go anywhere else.

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


My sister recommended me to this dental group, I was a bit skeptical because I was always afraid of dentists. So I went and it turns out that the staff here are very friendly, made me feel comfortable and they work quick. They send email and text msg reminders about your appointments which is really helpful. Overall I’m really satisified with this dental group and I’m glad I listened to my sister.

Dr. Ghassemi is so friendly and will make you very comfortable for your dental visit. She is a highly trained dentist and capable of handling all kinds of dental treatment. I would definitely recommend Dr. Ghassemi to any of my friends!

Me and my girlfriend have been coming here pretty much nonstop since January and literally love it. We came here originally because of all the good reviews and could not ask for a better dentist. Both of us have been avoiding the dentist for years because of childhood trauma but now can’t wait to chat with Pegah about True Detective. We have been extremely comfortable with every procedure and have never felt pain from anything. We both had a lottttt of work to be done, way more than just cleanings and could not recommend Pegah and her staff enough! Will be coming here for all my business for as long as I possibly can!!

Dr. G has helped me transform my smile. I highly recommend her office. I’ve been doing Invisalign with her for the past year. I’ve seen a significant change in my smile and my bite. Definitely a self esteem booster. My smile also feels healthier since I’ve been coming to her office.
