Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

I’ve been going here since they opened in this location. At the time, my office was in the same building, and now I’m down the street, so I was attracted by the convenience. But I’ve continued to go back because they did good work and were reasonable in respecting what I wanted.I work in the neighborhood, and this has been my dentist for at least a decade. They’ve always been exceptional, from check-ups and cleaning to, most recently, a very challenging tooth extraction. I’ve used lots of dentists, and Dental Arts is as good as any, and better than most

I found Dr. Slamat and Dr. Tak when there were first opening their practice back in 2005 and when I started a new job in Downtown LA. Dr. Slamat is by far THE BEST dentist I have ever had. I don’t even work in Downtown LA anymore (not since 2006) but I make the trip to see Dr. Slamat–that’s how good he is. Dental Arts Dentistry was my go to before my son was even an idea and now this 12-year old is Dr. Tak’s patient. Even my husband is now a patient. During COVID-19, I’m especially impressed with their sanitation procedures, pretty much serving only 1 pod/family/patient at a time in their practice and then disinfecting everything–including the air–before the next patient. I’ve had 3 different dentists in between (from moving back to the SF Bay Area, then back to LA) so I can tell you with certainty that they’re the best dentists I’ve ever had. Unless I have to move out of town again, I’m staying with Dr. Slamat until one of us kicks the bucket in 50 years or so.

I don’t know what happened, but I somehow went, ahem, multiple years without going to the dentist. I finally decided to come in after seeing a wisdom tooth start to emerge. Obviously, I would need more than just a regular cleaning after such a long time. I ended up undergoing a deep cleaning. Walter: Walter was hilarious! I’ve NEVER been afraid of the dentist. In fact, I 100% enjoy going to the dentist. It was always a fun experience for me, but I had some very slight apprehension this time around, being that I was WAY overdue. Walter was a funny dude and he made the x-ray process easy and was gentle during my cleaning. Dr. Tak: Dr. Tak was awesome! Despite the more rigorous cleaning I needed, she was still very gentle, checking on me in case I was experiencing any pain associated with the deeper cleanse. I didn’t really experience any pain at all, come to think of it. I simply laid back and let them do their magic. Dr. Tak and Walter also did a wonderful job re-educating me on good dental habits to use moving forward. Overall, a 5 star experience. Will be coming back for my next cleaning! Nathaniel P.

When I lived in L.A., I went to Dr Tak every six months for about six years or so. On one occasion, I scheduled a last minute appointment for the next day due to an unfortunate bicycling accident in which I broke at least half of one of my front teeth. They scheduled me for the next day. A filling was sculpted in the shape of the rest of one of my front teeth, and it has lasted for 3 years so far. Everyone is very nice and the practice is run in a very honest manner. I have since moved to Portland, but I highly recommend this place.

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


Been going to see Dr. Tak and more recently Dr. Slamat (for a procedure) for a number of years. They are very professional, always on time, and super nice people. They always make sure they explain everything they are doing and why they are doing it. I’ve never felt pressured or “tricked” to get extra procedures done. Once I went through a few procedures from me not having been to the dentist for a few years, it’s been really smooth sailing since. I now go every 6 months for my routine cleaning, and I actually don’t dread going to the dentist anymore. If you’re in the Downtown LA area, I would strongly recommend them. The parking is tough (as it usually is in DTLA), but there is a target (7th and Fig) down the street where you can park and get your parking validated and pay only a dollar or two. It’s a short walk over to 6th and Hope. The parking in the same building is not validated, and it’s a bit pricey, so I would advice against parking in the building. I’ve recommended a few of my coworkers to them, and they couldn’t be happier.

I hadn’t been to the Dentist in probably 4-5 years when I started going to Dental Arts. That was 3 years ago, and I’ve probably (and this is no joke) recommended 15 people to them since then!! Both Dr. Slamat and Dr. Tak are thorough, friendly, and professional, and the Assistants are just great (Walter is an avid snowboarder). The office is state-of-the-art and immaculately kept. Here’s my favorite part: everything they do is up front, honest, and in a totally relaxed atmosphere. After my first visit, Dr. Slamat talked over a long-term strategy for the health of my teeth (including eventually removing my wisdom teeth), and let me know he was happy to work with my insurance and budget needs. Even though I’m not working downtown anymore, I gladly make the trip to see them every 6 months. I cannot recommend them higher.

Dr Slamat and Dr Tak are the number 1 dentists I’ve ever experienced in the U.S. or overseas. Why? Not only they take away all of your “Dentist Fears” through their smooth and well done processes, but no matter what you need to get done, they honestly care and are professionals at what they do. They’re very efective and you won’t feel a thing in your dental treatment. Great staff as well by the way, an ideal team to be around when you need a dentist! Kudos!! Dr Tak & Dr Slamat

I am not a regular reviewer but had to write something for Dental Arts Dentistry. And by that, I mean the whole team from Cindy, Walter, to Dr. Slamat, and Dr. Tak… I have been going to them for over 7 years now and they have been nothing but wonderful. Dr Slamat fixed all of my cavities and did the best crown anyone can ask for on my front tooth(!) that had to go through two root canals prior to him. Nobody can tell, nobody ever asked. I go to them for regular cleanings and check ups now and for once I feel like I am on top of my game when it comes to my teeth. The whole team has been friendly, attentive, and efficient at all times. I really cannot remember a single bad experience in 20-30 times I have been to the office and that surprises me in a city like LA. I also don’t remember ever waiting for my appointment, I never sat on a chair! If you are looking for invisible and durable fillings and crowns, have healthy teeth, and a great dentist for the long run, very highly recommended!

dr. tak is really great. it’s hard to find a good dentist in LA, or in general, because you just don’t know who to trust. i’m glad i found dr. tak and her office though. the office is very clean and modern. dr. tak is friendly and honest. i felt like i could trust them to make recommendations and felt safe that they weren’t just trying to rip me off. they were the first to tell me about my grinding issues. unfortauntely, they do not take HMO (-1 star).

I am a Dental Arts Convert for life. I have a troubled mouth and have been to many dentists – all of whom claimed they could help me but never fixed a thing.  Dr. Slamat and Dr. Tak are the best dentists I’ve ever been to. On top of their dynamite skill, knowledge of latest technology and professionalism – they are personable, kind and put you at ease. I trust them implicitly. They will do great work that functions properly and looks great when you smile. I cannot recommend them enough!

Quorum A. from Saginaw, MI (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend. All my coffee stains are gone. Superb filling and night guard. Best dental work I’ve had in years. High standards beyond all dentists I’ve been to. Spent time explaining next steps and answering all my questions. Very knowledgeable. Friendly and courteous staff.

Ashley C. from Denver, CO (Source: Yelp)


The office is clean and comfortable. Dr. Tak explained everything clearly and answered all my questions. They looked up all the insurance information for me and were up front about my portions. I’m so glad I’ve finally found a dentist I like! Great experience!

Drs. Slamat and Tak are professional, kind, and caring with his patients. I am grateful to have the opportunity to coordinate dental care and orthodontic services together. Drs. Slamat and Tak are wonderful dentists who provide high quality care in a modern and high-tech environment.

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


Just had a belated dental check up and cleaning visit. Dr. Tak was friendly and she took time to explain how my teeth were doing reviewing the xrays and pictures she took. Office was clean and organized. Had no problem with the insurance verification. I would be happy to recommend my friends to see Dr. Tak.

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


Dr. Tak is the best and her entire staff is amazing! I have been going to her for almost 2 years now and I would never go any place else. I have had over 6 dentists and this one is by far the best. Her work is impeccable and as someone who is very cavity prone and terrified of needles, I’ve never felt more comfortable with any other dentist. Whether you need regular dental services or cosmetic dental services she’s your gal. I’ve had both and she is undefeated!

Chin H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Never in my life did I imagine leaving a review for a dentist or dental practice. But here I am. Dental Arts Dentistry is the place you want to be if you’re extremely scared of dentists or anyone looking at or poking in your mouth, which I was for a very long time. I grew up not liking to sit in the dental chair. The whir of that metal instrument and the sound of scraping against teeth – yikes and ouch! But after four visits to Dental Arts in the last two months, I can say with confidence my dental phobia is slowly but surely exiting out of my psyche (lol). Met Dr. Han Tak about 15 years ago. Their practice was new at that time, their service was excellent but due to convenience, I went to another practice which turned out to be a waste of my time and resources. That other practice didn’t do much to improve my overall oral health as they were herding patients so fast, and providing dental plans that cost a lot of money with little benefit. I should have just stayed with Dental Arts. Fast forward to 2019, I decided to visit Dental Arts again. Saw Dr. Han again over the Christmas holidays. She provided a complete dental plan with reasonable rates. She explained the procedures patiently and was very professional. By January 2020, I was done with gum surgery by her partner, Dr. Slamat, and I’m definitely on my way to better oral health. What I liked best is that this office did not practice dental shaming. I’ve met so many dentists and hygienists who can be quite rude. Dental shaming is when they look at you with disdain after they have a first glance at your mouth. Dental shaming is when they give you that clucking of their tongue telling you in so few words but with expressive non-verbal cues how horrible you are for not taking care of your teeth. Why pay hundreds, or thousands, of dollars only to be shamed like this? Frankly, I never went back to those other practices after the dental shaming. Sure, I wanted to get my teeth cleaned but I didn’t need the shaming portion. Nobody does. Thankfully, there was none of that shaming at Dental Arts Dentistry. Dr. Slamat was very thorough and highly-skilled in his work. I was very nervous but he was able to work expertly while at the same time, effectively helping me manage my anxiety. He actually made the appointments fun. He explained the procedures very well and he was not in a hurry to run off to the next patient. I’m really pleased with the gum surgery – again, never in a million years did I think I can actually say that. There is minimal wait time at their office during appointments. They are also very responsive to text messages, in case of any dental issues or emergencies. The dental assistants were quite friendly and knowledgeable – shoutout to Cindy and Walter! Cindy was a wonderful dental assistant as she was very careful not to poke too much during those 2-hour gum surgery sessions. I really appreciate that, too. Overall, Dental Arts is a small practice but they take very, very good care of their patients. I hope the service continues to be excellent over the years.

I highly recommend this place. I’m very picky about dentists because I think it’s very easy for them to tell you that you need extra costly procedures. I went to another place first to check a potential cavity in one of my tooth and they told me I needed a very complex and expensive treatment. I went to Dental Arts Dentistry for a second opinion and confirmed it was just a cavity and got it fixed it pretty quickly. I also had a dental cleaning and everything went perfectly. I’m going back to this place to get my braces.

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


Hands down the absolute best dental office I have ever been to. I was going to cheap hmo dentists who kept claiming I had cavities and tried performing dental work I didn’t need. Been going to dental arts for 10 years now and 0 cavities or major dental work. They emphasize prevention and always do a great job to educate me on the latest techniques for healthy teeth and gums. My wife loves them and so does my 4 year old who actually loves going to see Dr. Tak for her cleanings. The entire family drives more than 20 miles including now my in laws and mother because they all have realized that Dr. Slamat and Dr. Tak are the best. Also much love to their dental assistants Walter and Cindy.

Juliana M. from Oakland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to both Dr. Slamat and Dr. Tak and both are outstanding. Some highlights: -My first visit Dr. Tak reviewed my teeth/x-rays/general dental hygiene one on one in her office. It was insightful and a great way to start a doctor/patient relationship. -Dr. Slamat was excited at the challenge to fix a problem filling of mine; you could really tell his passion for what he does. -Every procedure they’ve ever suggested has purpose and thoughtfulness behind it. -They’re both respectful when listening to my hesitations regarding any dental work. -The office is extremely efficient; their technician is fast and very friendly! He’s always a nice way to start the visit. -The receptionist has it together and is pleasant too. It actually excites me that I’ve finally found a dentist who I trust because that is no small feat. I couldn’t be happier.

Anthony D. from Playa del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kim Tak was awesome! She was very thorough and took her time going through the photos and x-rays with me. I went in for a routine cleaning and that’s exactly what I got. She told me about potential issues that may arise in the future, but didn’t pressure me into doing any unnecessary procedures right away

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


I’ve always hated the dentist. Always. But with Dental Arts Dentistry, I don’t mind so much. Dr. Tak is kind but very straightforward. She’s corrected my flossing and brushing too. They are usually very gentle and will even wrap you up in a blanket if you are cold. The few procedures I underwent that were above my pain threshold, I was told exactly what to expect so there were no surprises. Everyone there is friendly and the place is spotless–even the bathroom is clean from top to floor. Payments: I’ve always been told before any procedure exactly what my insurance is covering, etc. They broke down every number to me in all my procedures and having done my research, I know the prices are fair/comparable. Making appointments: Never had a problem–they always call with a reminder and I’m even able to make/reschedule appointments via email (convenient when I’m in the office/meetings all day). They’re very understanding with my reschedules. I will probably continue to come here as long as they’re here. I’m not sure about parking–you may want to call but I don’t think they validate. I usually walk there.

Without a doubt, one of the most caring, skilled and efficient dental offices I have ever been to – and I have been to a lot!  Dr. Slamat and Dr. Tak, a husband and wife team, are incredible together and complement each other’s skills in a way only a husband and wife can do.  The office is spotless, the atmosphere is quiet and relaxed, they take the time to make sure you’re comfortable, and charge you a fair price.  My husband, who had to have numerous extractions and gum surgery, absolutely hates dentists.  This is the only place he will go.  They offered him exceptional service, opening early for him, ensuring he was comfortable and secure, and took as much time as he needed to get himself relaxed for the procedures.  To top it off, they prepared a little care package, complete with chicken soup, to take home with him!  Can’t recommend this practice enough.

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


It appears you will either have a great experience or horrible…I have been several times now…and have been extremely pleased with their service…both Dr. Slamat and Dr Tak…Their dental hygienist are very friendly making me feel welcome and comfortable and the front staff is kind enough to schedule my next visit while following up with reminder calls which I find very helpful. I would highly recommend either one of these doctors!!!
