I have been going to Dr. Anderson for 35 years. He has always been there for my whole family-Mom, Dad, Sister, her kids, and my kids. Hes been my dentist my whole life. My kids have been seeing Dr. Denette since they were toddlers. She is awesome with kids and grown ups!! The office staff Sandy, Kelly & Linda are the best! We love them, they are GREAT PEOPLE!! Best dentists and best office staff!

Judging by trying to get an appointment, it appears I am not the only patient that finds this particular dentist “just what they are looking for”. Assisted by an equally qualified assistant -Kelly- Dr Denette Anderson will fill your dental needs. All my kids have seen this doctor over the years, as well as me. Pricing is very reasonable, quality of work is the best, and you always seem to have fun in this office. How could you not, Denette and Kelly are fun, upbeat and positive, and the kids love this unbeatable pair. Steve in Seal Beach

This review has been a long time in the waiting. My wife first started coming years ago and finally convinced me to go. It has been the best move I’ve made. Dr. Denette and her staff have been fantastic. My hygienist Ally is amazing and between the 2 of them have been getting my dental needs in place. The front desk is very helpful and accommodating.

Alex H. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was lucky enough to be probably one of the last clients that Merle took on! I seriously think that because back then and by back then I mean like 10 years ago he was already thinking of retiring! He knew his stuff It’s and old school vibe on his side of the place. He has since retired and his daughter who was on the side now runs the whole place I just thought I would write a late review beside it deserves It Carol was also great hygienist and she retired with my prior dentis

Stephanie T. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Denette for several years now. Its been my experience that her staff are quick and courteous, and the Dr. and technicians are excellent at their jobs. I find the pricing to be more than reasonable, and the front office is wonderful at working with your insurance to make sure you don’t overpay. I’ve never waited more than 15 minutes to be seen, and feel like the Dr. and technicians all listen to concerns without rushing.

Violet K. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Denette has been treating our family for several years now. She is amazing with both adults and children. My daughters (8 & 5) have only gone to her for their dental work. The love visiting her office because they have no idea that a dental office can be a “scary” place (not to mention the toys and costume rings they get when they go there…) My girls have had to have (unfortunately) several fillings and Dr. Denette has been able to do them all with out anesthetic…That’s right NO shots! It’s important that my girls have good experiences at the dental office, but they also offer late hours for working adults, our hygienist, Suzan, is amazing, and the rest of the staff is wonderful too! Top notch place! I highly recommend Dr. Denette!!!

A. G. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Tavernakis for years and was devastated when he retired, and skipped dentist visits for a while for fear of a bad experience. So glad I finally went to see Dr. Anderson. She is at least as good. Everyone was very caring and attentive and accommodating to my fears. I get to wear the x-ray apron the entire time because I find it very calming, and they’re not making a fuss about it or mocking me. Everyone always explains in detail what is happening, so I know exactly what to expect – the dreaded drill sound, or the exact same sound but now it’s just to polish the tooth, a little mini-saw to make sure the filling is separated from the adjacent tooth so I can floss, now there is going to be a little bit of water, etc. Also, I just got my first bill that showed how much my insurance paid, and that Dr. Anderson could charge me up to $111 – but they only charged $56, and included a handwritten explanation. How awesome is that?!? I’m re-doing all my fillings and crowns this year and am happy to not have to go any more dentist-shopping.

Charlie H. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Denette is the best and Kelly her assistant is super nice. Her side of the office is like a party every time I am there. Happy people laughing at each other and professional. Glad I am in their care. Front office staff are great Sandi and Linda are both helpful and caring. Thanks Ladies!

Lis A. from Signal Hill, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Anderson for more than 10 years. He and his staff are always friendly and professional. I have never had any negative issues to contend with. I always enjoy the hygienists because they are very personable. Dr. Anderson is very nice too. I have also had some work done from their periodontist. I needed a root canal while I was pregnant, and Dr. Larsen was excellent.

Ashley A. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Anderson is WONDERFUL! Over the years he has truly taken the best care of my teeth. I had to have 2 crowns done and a few fillings because my dentist I had growing up was horrible and I was scared to go to the dentist. Finally I came to this office knowing I just had to bite the bullet and get it over with. Not only was he gentle and quick but he really made me feel comfortable and not anxious one bit. Usually the worst part is getting the shot to numb you. His technique is so simple and he’s always right on point. They don’t over book the practice so waiting around would be the rarest of occasions. I just recently had a small filling done and they had me in and out in 40 minutes! 40 MINUTES!!!! Always a great experience here! If I could give 10 stars I would!

Yesenia A. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Before seeing Dr. Anderson I had not been to the dentist for about 5 years due to no insurance. I was sure my teeth were gonna need a lot of work but it turns out I just needed a couple of fillings. I love how nice everyone is and how professional they all are. Dr. Anderson is awesome! I felt ZERO pain and she finished up fast. I love that the wait is minimal unlike other dentist I’ve been to where It would practically be an all day thing for just a filling. I HIGHLY recommend this place.

Erika B. from Cypress, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended to Dr. Denette Anderson by a friend who has been going to her for a long time. I fall into the category as one of those people who went the dentist as a child, but hasn’t gone since late college when my parents’ insurance stopped covering me. Needless to say, I hadn’t been to the dentist in almost 5 years when I first went to go see Dr. Anderson this past August. The staff there was great. I was in and out in about 40 minutes for a cleaning and x rays. Dr. Anderson is nice, professional, and a real person with a family and a life, not just a robot dentist. I had an old filling that needed to be replaced and a new cavity that had developed. I went back about a week later for my cavity filling and it was quick and as painless as can be expected. I’ve got my 6 month appointment set up for February and I’m actually kind of looking forward to it since her office made it so easy.

Elaine C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I decided to try a new dentist in my area and a coworker referred me to Dr. Denette.  Dr. Denette and assistant Kelly are very professional and made me feel at ease.  On my recent visit I had to have a crown on one of my molars.  Dr. Denette made me feel comfortable through the procedure.  I highly recommend their office.

Carol D. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I will NEVER forget the first time I met Dr Denette – our son was about 1 1/2 years old and slipped in the tub and broke his front baby tooth.  Dr Denette was in Catalina that weekend but called us back (we were not patients of hers yet) and calmed me down …..21 years later…… she and her staff are part of our yearly routine – they are incredible….we love them all!!!

Rachele L. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t have enough nice things to say about Dr. Denette. I am terrified of dentist’s usually. She completely put me at ease. Her entire staff is very kind and I actually look forward to going there. I can’t believe that I could ever feel that way about a dentist. She is very efficient, affordable, and extremely good at what she does. Not to mention painless..I didn’t think it could be possible to feel this comfortable at a dentist.

James B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Moved to Long Beach and needed to find a new dentist (traveling to Laguna Hills was getting old with traffic).  Was referred to Dr. Anderson by a friend, and could not be happier.  I never have had to wait more than 5 or 10 minutes, and the entire staff is friendly and professional.  Dr. Anderson has a great personality, makes you feel at ease, explains everything in easy to understand terminology, and is extremely fair as far as cost.  What a relief to find such a kind and competent dentist so close to my house.  I trust her 100%.

Jeffrey M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate dentists, I mean I HATE them. As a result I found myself without even teeth to eat with, and could never ever smile. Finally just before I lost the ability to eat, even speak normally I started seeing dentists to help re-build my mouth. After 7 visits to 7 different dentists I had quotes to repair the damage. The lowest was 30k the highest was 35k, which meant I was doomed to go toothless eventually. Then a co-worker told me about a dentist who he said was the best he had ever been to. So I went to see Dr. Denetta, that was 18 months ago, now $9,000.00 later I have my speech back, a smile like I had as a teenager and the ability to eat steak, corn on the cob, basically anything I want. If you are scared of and hate going to the dentist, if you need drastic help she is who you should go see. The results are amazing, the cost was affordable. You cannot go wrong. I’ve never written a review for anything or anyone but feel compelled to do so in this case. CALL HER you will not be disappointed.

Kevin L. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Denette Anderson is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. She always takes the time to explain the process and she always does he best to get it done! She has provided hope when all seems to no avail. I will always come back to my dentist! Drop by and get your teeth cleaned or worked on.

We love Dr. Denette. She is very friendly, they offer reasonable prices and the personnel is so nice. My family is been going there for the last 21 Years.

Denette is absolutely fantastic. She sets a plan for you for dental care and fixes everything in a careful and thoughtful manner with dental insurance in mind. I am in need of extra Novocaine when I have work on specific teeth and she finds the exactly perfect combination each time so I do not feel a thing and I will admit, I am always super nervous for getting work done. I have had 4 or 5 crowns done by her now and they all went superbly well. My family went to her dad, Merle for about 40 years before he retired and Denette took over the practice. What I love about our dentists is that they care about the person; I think that is what sets them apart from everyone else.

Tina W. from Grass Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I actually drove nearly 400 miles to see Dr. Denette Anderson, and I am very glad I did! I was having ongoing, unresolved dental issues with my regular dentist up here. He referred me to an oral surgeon for a tooth extraction. I was told the cost would be nearly $400, that he probably wouldn’t be able to get me numb enough without general anasthetic, and he also said to plan on sitting in his chair for 45 minutes while he “drilled” it out. After a near-panic attack the night before the appointment, I cancelled the following morning and called Dr. Anderson’s staff. (I was referred to her by a friend of mine who lives near her and loves her work.) Dr. Anderson took care of my extraction for me in less than 30 minutes, and, including the x-ray, the total cost was only $125! I think I found my new dentist…I felt completely at ease while in her office…and her staff was excellent!

My kids and I have gone to Dr. Denette Anderson for years. I decided to take advantage of my medi-cal covered dental offices and save some money. Both Western Dental and Dr. Zak Dental companies tried ripping me off; telling me I had periodontal disease and several cavities and require a specific deep clean that is not covered by insurance. They wanted to charge me $1,000. I decided to call up Dr. Denette’s office and they had an appointment for the next day. Not only was the visit on time, and the service quick and effective, the staff are so pleasant. I was assured that my teeth only required a basic cleaning and there was no periodontal disease forming. If you want a trustworthy dentist, go to Dr. Denette Anderson. They are reliable and very reasonably priced.

Foster R. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My dentist of many years died and a dental corporation took over the practice. The new people overbooked, always a long wait and there was high turnover of staff, very rushed atmospshere, I never saw the same dentist twice. They were always pushing procedures that my insurance didn’t cover. When some work they did had to be redone, I decided to find a new dentist. Based on the recommendation of family members, I tried Dr. Denette. I’ve been seeing Dr. Dennette for a couple of years now and couldn’t be more pleased. Easy to get appointments, no long waits when you get there and the staff is always friendly. I’ve had no problems with her work.

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


I took all my kids (my 10, 5, and 2-year-old) yesterday for our cleanings. My little one was there more so to look at what I thought were cavities. Turns out, yes, he had 2 in his lower molars. I just want to let everyone know it’s not easy working on children, or adults for that matter. But my 2-year-old was treated with great care. They showed him the instruments they were going to use, and how they worked. He opened his little mouth and they worked their magic. No needles, no pain. He sat very still like a champ. They were able to fill his cavities and I couldn’t have been more pleased of how smoothly the process went. You guys are awesome!

I found Dr. Denette based on a close location to my home and positive reviews on social media, and I am pleased! Don’t be put off by the very dated appearance of the building. This is a modern dental office with a crackerjack staff. The hygienist who did the cleaning was great and quite concerned about seeing me on time. I had to wait a few minutes to see the dentist and several staff checked on me. Based on typical experience at other providers, I had expected to read a couple of chapters in the book I had brought, but the wait was well under 10 minutes. The front office staff know exactly what they are doing, work quickly and efficiently–and they’re nice! What a change from a typical medical/dental office! I had a minor issue from work done by my previous dentist (which is why I was shopping for a new dentist), and Dr. Denette was able to address my problem. I liked her conservative approach. The prior work was not optimal, but since the work was adequate, Dr. Denette didn’t recommend ripping it all out and starting over. I also found that to be a refreshing change from other dentists who just want to start a list of all the procedures they can do and charge for.

These people here are the absolute epitome of what a remarkable excellent dentists office should be . This office should get 10 stars , so extremely professional , nice , and welcoming . Family owned and ran , and affordable (they will even work a Payment plan out for you ) I will never go to another dentist again . Merle is the perfect dentist , and an all around neat man . I highly recommend this office . And will be letting anyone I know who needs dental work done to go here .

J. A. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


There are 2 Anderson doctors father and daughter. My family and it have seen the daughter. She is a great lady. Very nice and personable. It’s a great office for kids. She talked with my daughter through her injection she gave her for numbing. And when the kids are done with the visit they get to pick a toy from the treasure chest.

Diana M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Now that I found Dr. Denette Anderson’s dental office, I will never go to any other dental office again. I can not rave enough about Dr. Denette and her wonderful and friendly staff. Dr. Denette Anderson is a family friendly dental office. They genuinely care about their patients and treat everyone as if they were a friend of the family. Dr. Anderson is very professional with a dynamic personality. Her assistant Kelly M. is extremely funny and will have you entertained to the point you forget you are sitting in a dental chair. Sande the receptionist is just as wonderful too. She works very hard to accommodate Dr. Anderson’s patients and treats everyone like a friend. I have been going for many years and can not think of any negative experience I have had with this office. I just wish every business operated the same.

Tracy F. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dentist ever!  Denette is so friendly and really cares about her patients.  After a bad experience with a dentist, I asked around and she came very highly recommended from a friend when I needed a cap over a new implant.  I have been going to Denette for about 8 years now.  I love that I can trust my teeth to her and that she will not advise unecessary treatments.  Her staff is great too.  I actually look forward to my appointments.

Jason C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr. Anderson to get a cleaning. What a friendly place. Everyone was very friendly from the moment I walked in. I’m was looking for a cleaning and I had a few questions for Dr. Anderson. What a great person if you’re looking for a place give her a call. She’ll make you laugh. Already forward to my next visit.

Everyone in the office is so wonderful and helpful. They’ve been doing a fantastic job on all my dental work.

Corey C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a hockey player who has lost my front teeth three times and need a lot of help.  Dr. Anderson has taken the time to give me all the attention my poor mouth needs to give me the results I expected from her and her professional staff.  I have told many people to see Dr. A. I have a lot of experience in Dentist offices and give this office a top rating.  She gets me in ASAP every time.  Rarely wait more than 5-10 minutes.  And she even calls me to make sure I am doing well.  Now thats a Doctor that cares.

Cynthia M. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Andersen for years. Not only is he a nice person, he is kind to his patients. Maybe the office did not like Lauren C.’s attitude and that happens where you do every thing you can to get certain attitudes out of your workplace. I know, I use to be a dental assistant we would sure had our share of grumpy people who expected the moon, yet were unwilling to pay for what it cost the doctor to do a great job. Dentistry is not cheap. You get what you pay for.  Anyway, I highly recommend Dr. A. He’s fun and has never been anything but nice to our family. He even came into the office twice for family members who are not his patients on holidays when they were suffering with toothaches! Now who does that?


I have been in practice since 1988. I practice with my Father. It's a family practice!
