Cute Smile Dental knows how to treat its patients right!! Dr. Akraa is wonderful at what she does. Of all the dentists I’ve had in the past, she is by far the best. She makes going to the dentist not feel like a hassle or a chore. I’ve been going here to get regular check-ups with my family and they’re always on top of it when it comes to great service and treatment. They have lots of services to provide, including Invisalign scanning and applying! One thing that you should know, though, before coming is that parking is a bit difficult outside of the office. It’s valet and the lot is usually sort of packed. This shouldn’t stop you from going though! Check out Cute Smile!

I’ve been a loyal patient for over 9 years absolutely love Dr. Akraa. She’s the best at what she does. wouldn’t go anywhere else. She just always makes the process pain free fast & easy. The staff is amazing, have toddler who has not started school an the staff was always kid & friendly would watch over my 4 year old with no hesitation.

This review is long overdue. A dental visit/treatment experience can’t get any better than at Cute Smile. The dentist herself, the staff, the technology — all A! Dr. Akraa is always ahead of the curve when it comes to her craft. Continuously undergoing training and passing on her newfound learning to the benefit of her patients — like me! I also love that her clinic has convenience gadgets that help make one more comfortable during treatment. The staff is friendly and genuinely concerned about you; that’s how I felt. Plus, Dr. Akraa herself is really gentle and easy to talk to. One of the great things I left behind when I left California is the service I get from this clinic. I recommend it to all I know to this very day. Thanks for my cute smile, indeed!

Dr, Akraa has been my dentist for over five years now. She not only gets to know you but will recommend the best treatment for you. She moved to a new office several months ago and it is very clean, ample parking, and simply more upgraded then the last office. Office and back room staff is polite. I’ve done Invisalign there and every other treatment recommended for by the dentist. Thank you for five years of great service. I would recommend family and friends.

Dr. Akraa is a highly skilled dentist. She has a gentle touch, and is very knowledgeable. I have had root canals, crowns, implants, teeth cleanings, and routine fillings all with little pain and quality results. I would highly recommend her service. Also, her staff is very professional and skilled It is comforting to feel that you are in good hands.

Kathy H. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for almost 10 years and love Dr. Akraa. She is loving, caring and very gentle. I have been bringing my daughter to see her for at least 5 years and my daughter is so relaxed with Dr. Akraa because Dr. treats her with gentle loving care. I also have referred my family and friends to her and they love her as well. My insurance doesn’t allow me to go to her so I pay out of pocket but she’s worth every penny! You’re the BEST, Dr. Akraa! xo!

Sylvia K. from West Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Akraa is the most professional, experienced, and well educated in the lastest procedures.  She is caring and gentle.  You can put your complete trust in her care. I’ve been going to Dr. Elly many years and have always recommended her to all my family and friends.  If you are looking for the best and most complete dental care – call Cute Smile and make an appointment as soon as possible, you’ll be well taken care of.

Jennifer M. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I honestly don’t know where to begin with how happy I am with the service my family gets at Cute Smile. I went to a dentist years ago who told me I had 12 cavities. Clearly I was extremely concerned seeing how I have been told all my life how great my teeth are. I decided to seek a second opinion and was referred to Cute Smile by my boss. From the first visit with Dr. Akraa and her team I was instantly sold. She takes the time to describe what they are doing and gives me tips on things I can do to see an improvement in my teeth. I can’t honestly say I have ever had a concern about anything since switching. A huge thank you to Dr. Akraa and the whole cute smile staff for the outstanding service and level of care I receive during each visit.

Brittany S. from Belleville, NJ (Source: Yelp)


I could not be more happy with my experience at cute smile.  I was a first time client and will definitely be returning!  The dentist is one of my least favorite places, as I cringe with the noises and having things in my mouth.  Every staff member at cute smile made me feel so comfortable throughout the process.  On top of that, it was my first time of my seven years in LA being happy with my results.  I’ve had bonding on my front two teeth that I’ve needed fixed for years.  I’ve left disappointed from every other dentist I went to in LA.  This was the first time I left feeling proud and excited of my smile.  I am so grateful for everyone at cute smile and would recommend it to everyone!

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


I been coming to her for the past 10 years me and my family. Dr Akraa and her staff are very professional. when its time for my cleaning or my family cleaning they call us a month ahead to schedule an appointment. I love coming to her office if i have an emergency they always see me right away. they take their time to explain for any treatment i need.

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


I was very lucky to have met Dr. Akraa at a time I was looking for a new Dentist.  They are just the most professional and friendly group you’d ever want to experience. I personally am not a fan of dentist so this was a wonderful experience for me with state of the art equipment and not much pain. Dr. Akraa is one of the most caring gentle dentist I have ever been too. I also have to mention that everyone that works for her are the best!

Bill Delis (Source: Google)


A friend recommended Dr Akraa and her staff after having horrible experiences with my previous two dentists. I have been coming to Cute Smiles Dental for many years now because Dr Akraa is very professional, knowledgeable and honest. I appreciate all that she and her staff do for me and my dental health and I would highly recommend Cute Smiles to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Erwin Y. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just want to rave how wonderful, caring, and the amazing professionalism in which all the staff and the Dr. Akraa carry themselves with. My old filling on my molars had broken off and they were able to see me right away. I have never felt so satisfied going to the dentist office who has been so warm in welcoming me and getting my teeth back on a healthy track. Thanks a million, Dr. Akraa and staff, you guys are all wonderful people.

Bill A. from Agoura Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen many dentists, but I can tell you, when it comes to good work ethics, honesty, and professionalism, Dr. Akraa wins them all. I have been seeing her for three, or four years now, and I have zero complaints. She has always gone out of her way taking care of any issues, always listened, and never minded going the extra mile to do what’s right for her patient. She loves what she does, very pleasant person, and puts her patient concerns above her own. The office is very clean, high tech, comfortable, and above all, the staff is very pleasant and they make you feel at home. I highly recommend her practice for anyone looking for a DDS with high professionalism and wonderful ethical standards.

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


I highly recommend Dr. Ilham Akraa and her staff at Cute Smile Dentistry. They are a highly professional, skilled, and dedicated group of people. Not only are they flexible in providing convenient appointment scheduling, but also offer convenient payment plans.  I mainly appreciated the individual attention and the patience that all of the staff demonstrated while working on my teeth. I can honestly say that the services provided are prompt and are “pain free.” Thank you Cute Smile Dentistry!

I don’t know how long I’ve been coming to Cute Smile but with that being said I wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Honestly, they’ve set the bar high. Dr. Akraa is amazing. She’s makes sure and stays up-to-date on the latest technology and information within her industry. She cares for her patients or at least I feel that way and that has been my experience with her. The girls in the office are friendly and LOL funny. I enjoy talking to them not so much the dental work/cleaning. I’m forever grateful to the person who referred me to this dental office. I can’t wait to go back and see them again…if they’re reading this…”I’ll be back [soon]!”

My daughter and I recently came in for a cleaning and exam. We have been coming to this office for many years. We feel we are in very good hands. Dr. Akraa is great, as always, and on top her game. She uses advanced technology and gives the best advice. The entire office is very clean, organized and staff is very friendly and professional. We’ll definitely keep coming back.

I’m a big fan of this dental office. My friend referred me to Cute Smile and from the minute I called to when I first met them in person I was always treated with an upbeat and positive energy. It doesn’t feel like a cold, dreary, and scary dental office that my dad used to force me to go to as a child. ha ha ha… rather its bright and cheery. Really refreshing. I can’t say I like going to the dentist all the time, but in this case, I kind of do. I’m glad I found them. Be sure to ask them for the free smile make over pictures. They showed me a digital image of my teeth what it would look like if I did some cosmetic work to them. That part was an interesting experience they provided for me.

My family and I have been coming for over a decade ! My experience continues to be the same. My family and I are so blessed  to have such Dentist it is definitely not easy to trust just in anyone when it comes to yours and your families health. Therefore I’m extremely bless to have found the perfect dentist for my family, specially a dentist who knows exactly what we need and makes our dental visits easy not only to understand what’s going on as far as our dental treatment goes, but also to keep us calm during our dental treatment as well. Dr.Akraa is sooo amazing! Staff is friendly, very professional, knowledgeable, caring and accommodating. I recently called to schedule an appointment for my 15 year old son, although his schedule is crazy due to school, sports and what not. I called explained to staff was able to scheduled same day appointment within hours of calling. We are greeted by such friendly staff. I work for the public and I know what excellent customer service/patient care is.. All I can say is keep up the great work and kudos to Dr. Akraa and the rest of cute smile staff!  Highly recommend to everyone,  You will definitely have a great experience, I promise you will consider her for all your dental treatment needs. Thanks To Dr.Akra & CuteSmile Staff.

Dr Akraa and team are amazing! They take time to work with every patient, impeccable work, always willing to help and work with patients. Office has short wait times and flexible with appointments. Makes you feel like you are part of the family. I live an hour away from the dental office but won’t go anywhere else. The best dentist and team!

Had my 6 month cleaning with Sophie today. She was very sweet and did a thoural job. She used the scaler and the ultrasonic as well. She’s chatty and great customer service. I was in and out even with seeing the Dr in an hour. Free parking and you wear a mask up until your service. They also have every other chair blocked off in the waiting room.

Marjorie O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a new patient referred by a friend who has been going to this office for years.. The staff were so nice.. Daisy was very pleasant.. Dr. Akraa was patient in explaining the procedures that can make you look great  but most specially she makes you feel she will take of you.  Carol will provide all payment options to make it light on the pocket.. They make you feel calm and chill(specially for someone like me who is always all sweaty and nervous in a dental office)..  I will definitely be back Thank you ladies.. see you soon!

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


I was recommended to Cute smile by one of my co-workers years ago, only to find out my two sisters have been coming here for years, Go figure. They kept this hidden gem from me. Front desk (Lidia), is always helpful and greets u with a (Cute Smile) 🙂 . The entire staff is always professional, friendly and always welcoming. Dr. Akraa is excellent, professional and highly knowledgeable. She’s gentle and a perfectionist which I like.  I’ve had several cleanings, a crown replaced, and a several resin (white) composite fillings, I can say I’m very satisfied with Dr Akrra’s work and skills.  I highly recommend her dental office, to anyone looking for a new dentist in the San Fernando Valley who is highly regarded and qualified.  Dr. Akraa has a winning Team.

Mamdouh E. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best service ever. Friendly staff. Great to work with. They are terrific. Carol was amazing as she offers you water while you wait and even ask you for anything to make you more comfortable. Office is super clean and friendly with state of the art equipment.  Thank Dr Akraa for all you do for our family and children who are now adults.

Cristina G. from Encinitas, San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Akraa is the best. I definitely love her and the experience she offers. She never disrespects anyone or judges. Usually other dentist have a judgmental tone. But not Dr.Akraa. She always goes the extra mile to ensure I am happy with my teeth. It’s funny but she always remembers everything I tell her.

Gerardo B. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


I just recently moved from Florida to Beverly Hills and my friend who lives here referred Dr Ilham Akraa. The whole staff was very helpful transferring all my information over the phone. I was able to get an appointment right away. Like most men from my generation I panic at any dentist location. Dr Ilham and her staff make me feel so calm and relaxed. She gave me the diagnosis with some alternatives and the same day she was able to proceed. I’m so Happy to find this place because I tried so many dentist and she is amazing. I was born and raised in Argentina and I have been living in 7 Major Cities in USA, traveling a lot for business, trust me that I experienced many different Dentists… Dr Ilham is THE BEST I feel a big relief knowing that I can trust my buccal health in Dr Ilham and her staff’s hands…I highly recommend CUTE SMILE DENTAL

Cann’t say enough positive things about Dr. Akraa and her staff! They are professional, yet personable and really care about my health and happiness. Working with Dr. Akraa and her staff is always a pleasant experience! They are great about working with my busy schedule and they always follow up with sincerity and thoughtfulness after my family’s procedures. I highly recommend working with Dr. Akraa.

Called to make and appointment for a teeth cleaning. The person that answered the phone was very polite and was scheduled for the next day. I went to my appointment the next afternoon that I was scheduled for and was greeted with a smiling face. I was given some forms to go over and not even 5 minutes and they were ready to see me I was really impressed with the easy process. Thank you Cute Smile.

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


She is awesome , very professional , caring and with a lot of integrity. Difficult to find this days in some Dentists. I really like to come to her because I Know she will take care of exactly they way that I expected , I tried different doctors before and honestly I could be happier that’s why I keep coming back to her and bringing my kids as well.she has a good workers as wells but she always will go hands on to make sure is done right! Thanks doctor.

Bonnie O. from Roswell, GA (Source: Yelp)


Our family of 6 has been CuteSmile patients for 12 years. We just moved out of California, and will miss this office more than I can say. Dr. Akra is always so accommodating and patient with my boys. She was even able to help my 5 year old get over his fear of dentists after a traumatic experience with a “pediatric” dentist. Her work is always top notch. The root canal that she did for me 12 years ago has never given me any problems. She has seen us through many dental issues, and she always fixes them right the first time. Her staff is friendly and helpful. Hoping that we can find a practice like this again in our new city!

Words cannot even begin to say how amazing this office is! From the second you walk through the door your greeted with smiling faces and a warm hello. Each and every single time I go there not a single person walks by without saying hello. Aside from the staff Dr. Akraa is not like anyone you will ever meet. She takes time to truly know each of her patients and regardless of how busy the office is she still takes a few minutes to sit and talk with you. I’ve had extremely bad experiences with previous dentists and to say I was anxious my first visit would be a vast understatement. Every time I go there she makes sure I’m comfortable before anything even begins. I highly recommend everyone to this office if you want a quality experience with a true professional. Thank you for the amazing experience and congrats on the beautiful new Office!

Dr. Akraa & all members of the staff are friendly, knowledgeable, and professional. Usually you feel scared or dread coming into a dentist office, but not this one. They make you feel comfortable the moment you step in at the reception area and when they perform the dental procedure. They have high-tech facilities and the location is convenient as they have free parking at the back.

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


Great service from Dr. Akraa and the ladies in her office (special kudos to Maria & Emily!!). They are very hospitable & caring about their patients. Didn’t feel pressured to get any unnecessary service. They use high-tech stuff and Dr. Akraa clearly explains whatever is needed to be done so you don’t feel so scared about the procedure or about being ripped off for getting a service you do not really need.
