★★★★★

“One of the best dental offices I have had in my life” Every time I go my visits are pleasant and I get the best care available, the staff is top notch and are always making sure that I am kept up with all of my appointments and cleanings. I know that people get afraid when they hear that they need work done, but at Desert Dental you can be rest assured that your visits here will be comforting and stress free. I actually catch myself snoozing when work is being done to me so that right there is proof that they are one of the best out there. Located in North Hollywood next to Leash, the parking is ample, office is one of the most stylish I’ve ever come across, and the staff are super friendly and courteous!. If you are looking for a dental office that won’t scare you away from getting your work done on your teeth trust me this place is what you need you’ll thank me later.

Desert Dental! The staff here is amazing, I’ve had nothing but positive expiriences from them and I’m happy to finally have a Dentist I can trust. Shervin is the hygienist who takes care of my cleanings and leaves my teeth so fresh and healthy! Scheduling is a breeze and is accommodating to my busy schedule. Thank you guys for making my dental work something to look forward to!

Five stars are what they deserve from bottom to top. The crew is very professional. They made me feel like a family. I can eat anything I want, since the doctor put my implants. Oh what a feeling!!!!!! Dr. Brian is very precise, gentle, careful and generous as well as Dr. Bita. Lisa, Marlem, July and the rest of the team are as sweet as they can be.

★★★★★

I met Dr. Brian Shahangian as a second opinion for a possible root canal and crown. My prior dentist retired and this was an important decision. I am a physician and quite picky. Dr. Shahangian made me feel at ease right away. He explained the game plan and it made complete sense. The entire surgery and crown placement went well! 4 months after I am without any pain with a solid crown. Thank you Dr Shahagian and team! I am recommending you to all my friends and family

The best dentist in L.A and every time I visit they make sure I leave with my mouth feeling fresh. They have great customer service and are always nice and make you feel comfortable. Their rates and prices are also very affordable and work well with your dental insurance. Clean and modern updated office. If you ever have a issue with your teeth, check out Desert dental.

★★★★★

An extremely well run dentist office. From the front desk to the dentist work it seems everyone working here does their actual best to help you as much as possible. When something with my insurance doesn’t clear correctly they do everything in their power to correct it before contacting me. The dentist and assistants are pleasant to talk to (and that makes a big difference when doing certain procedures) and simply do quality work. You can hear it in the tone of their voice how much they care about your teeth. A rare find if you ask me. Time and money well spent at Desert Dental.

Kalomoira Z. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I recommend Desert Dental highly because everyone there is very caring, calm and friendly. I’ve been going there for over a decade (my husband too) and Dr Bita, Dr Brian, Julie who cleans our teeth, and even the lovely helpful ladies at the front, Marlem and Lisa, are wonderful. Whoever you’re dealing with always is considerate and listens to your concerns (any one of the above people!) and I often ask a lot of questions and they always reply thoughtfully without rushing me or forcing me into anything. Generally, this is a very good dental group to go to. They know what they’re doing, and you hardly feel any pain at all ! If you’re nervous about going to the dentist, this is the one to go to.

Elisabeth B. from Toluca Ter, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I switched to Desert Dental Group sometime before 2006 as a result of a terrible experience with a ‘celebrity- by referral only’ west hollywood dentist’s inability to treat a degenerative back molar (after three excruciating attempts to fix it at my cost). Not only is Desert Dental close to home by comparison, but more importantly, they were able not only to address this difficult area, but since then have continued to treat it as sensitively as the worst attempt ever made. Since my awful experience with the west hollywood ‘celebrity’ dentist, and my switch to Desert Dental, visiting the dentist is again stress free and fearless. I have the Drs. and hygenists and their attention to their patient’s particular needs to thank for this.

I have been coming here for almost 4 years now and I must say I won’t go anywhere else. I am continuously recommending this place to family and friends. Staff is very friendly and professional. Dr. Brian Shahangian explains every procedure in great detail and is genuinely interested in giving you a healthy smile.

Natasha T. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

This place is amazing! I’ve been here twice and I’ve already referred 3 ppl. They’re all very friendly and the office is really clean. My treatment with Dr. Brian was painless. I’ve been seeing Julie for my cleanings and she’s super nice, very gentle and explains everything in detail. All positive things about the entire staff. Always smiling, friendly and helpful.

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

★★★★★

I’ve been a patient of Desert Dental for a few years and I have always been satisfied with the amazing service I’ve received from everyone. With my busy schedule I often have a hard time remembering appointments. The staff is excellent with reminders and giving me different options for payments. I hate having fillings done (i’m assuming nobody likes it) and when Dr. Brian did my fillings I didn’t feel a thing. REALLY! My last dentist would use up to 5 shots of Novocain and I would still feel it. Dr. Brian would use one shot and do more than one filling. No pain what so ever. Most importantly I was able to watch “Law and Order” while having it done. This is one of the most organized and kind dental or doctors offices I’ve been to. Nothing but great experiences.

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

★★★★★

I have been going to Desert Dental since 1994 and I absolutely love the entire team. Coming from many years of bad childhood dental experiences, I developed such a fear of dentists that I really hated to go, so for many years I as a young adult, I didn’t. I then found Desert Dental through a recommendation from my sister. As soon as I walked in for the first time, all my fears were put to ease and eventually evaporated. The entire staff is friendly, caring and compassionate.  I have not had a bad dental experience since. I have been taking my two kids there their whole lives and also recommend them to everyone I know.
Desert Dental has completely transformed my smile and made all my teeth and gums much healthier. I cannot thank them enough for all they have done for me. And actually enjoy going to my dentist now!

This dental office was initially recommended to me by a friend which have been a patient for years. I was always treated with courtesy and the outer most respect of my time, as my friend has expressed to me originally in his recommendation. I had some cavities treated and needed a crown on one. The dentist explained to me the problem with my tooth and walked me through the various options. The procedure itself was relatively free of pain. The office itself is highly modern and uses the latest equipment; pretty cool to see my teeth on a computer. In all I will recommend this office to anybody.

★★★★★

Wow! Costumer service is everything I found this dental office on yelp and was impressed by the ammount of great reviews.. Now I understand why!! This place is so proffesional and service oriented Two years ago at Weho I got an estimation for all my mouth probleme to be fixed – 3,500 I got everything over here for about 1,500$, including whitening and a kit to maintan the results at home They made sure I was happy all the way. The DR is super kind and proffesional. Nayele thank you for taking such a great care of me Will recommend highly to my friends and family!

★★★★★

I’ve been a patient and fan for over twelve years! I found Dr. Gian and his team and my teeth have never been happier. I absolutely love going to my dentist and his team of hygienist.  Excellent chair-side manners, gentle and meticulous hands, superb and on-point advise, affordable, prompt appointments, and friendly smiles.  They also offer the latest technology so you’re sure to be given the best advise for your dental concerns. Do it! You too will have healthy and happy teeth..

Love this place ! I came in as a new patient today . Lisa so was so lovely and gracious over the phone taking my appointment and advising me on the perfect bleaching gel . She sold me on making an appointment with them ! Julie , their dental hygienist  is incredibly meticulous and OCD in her work( just like myself )  and takes her time  to educate you on your teeth  ! Never got such a perfect deep cleaning until today . Dr . Brian takes his time to go thru each X-ray and tooth and doesn’t bother with up selling you on any work . Super friendly and personable

Suzette F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I’ve been coming here on and off for over 20 years, both with and without insurance. I’ve had several crowns and fillings, as well as cleaning and whitenings. Both doctors are very kind, efficient and knowledgeable. The hygienists are gentle and thorough. Their pricing is competitive with other dentists. Whenever I have went to a different dentist, I always come back here, as they know my history and don’t recommend excessive treatments. Thank you and I’ll see you at 4pm for my fillings today!

Ezra L. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

EVERYONE HATES GOING TO THE DENTIST. But! I have been coming to this dentist for over 3 years. They are the best at what they do. I had horrible experiences with other dentists to a point where I question if they were legit. Dr. Brian right away took me in and helped me understand the work that needed to be done. I had the work done and I can tell you I have never been happier. I enjoy coming to this office and being greeted by his wonderful staff. I always recommend this dentist to my friends.

They are excellent! I’ve had enough dental experiences in my lifetime to know when I’ve found a treasure chest of a dentist’s office. From the moment you step in the place, you feel at peace. This is good, because who likes the process of getting tartar scraped off their teeth? Although, perhaps you do. Cleaning: My dental hygienist is Julie. She’s marvelous. She is the absolute best dental hygienist I have ever had. This is because you can tell she loves what she does. She loves sending you off with the cleanest mouth possible. She’s extremely focused on the cleaning process and remarkably gentle. Her demeanor alone makes you feel at ease. I always feel confident and safe under her care. I highly recommend you request her. The dentists are a sister/brother team and they are absolutely lovely people. In fact, everyone there from the front desk to the person who does your x-rays are kind and respectful. The place has a familial sense about it. Although, I don’t know what the latest dental technology is, with the level of comfort you feel here, I can almost guarantee they have the latest technology. I’ve been going here for 2 years now. They’ve got a lifetime client in me!

Alright so after horror experiences at Western Dental, my good friend recommended me to try out Desert Dental. She said they are phenomenal and just quite amazing with what they do. So I came in not expecting much, I got to meet two of the friendliest staff at the reception, and greeted me with a warm welcome. This instantly felt like a second home and not so much as an establishment. I went in here for two wisdom tooth removals and 5 cavities. I had not one complaint. I was honestly blown away by how pleasant my visit was overall. I’m definitely coming here again for all my future dental work! LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS PLACE!

Where to begin…? I’ve been apart of Desert Dental family since I was young lad. If you’re looking for a team of honest, passionate and sincere professionals that always have your best interest in mind, then your dental needs have found their new home. They always provide solutions for any situation and more importantly a plan to help maintain your overall oral hygiene. Do your smile a favor and join the Desert Dental Group, it’ll change your entire perception on the “trip” to the dentist.

I’ve been going to desert dental for about 14 years. I walked in one day with a chipped tooth emergency, they accommodated me right away and I’ve been a customer ever since.
Dr. Bita and Dr. Bryan are very professional and gentle. The office managers Lisa and Merlin are always so warm and friendly. I’ve had orthodontic treatment along with general treatment. They offer several services unlike some dental offices where they have to refer you out. They specialize in a ton of areas concerning dentistry. If you are looking for a professional, clean, safe place for dental treatment you’ve found it! Thanks guys for such a comfortable environment. They keep the office at a comfortable temperature, nice tv’s, magazines, they are very friendly and kind to my two girls Puma and Sanovia. The whole demeanor of the staff is super welcoming and professional!

I have to say that I am very pleased with the level of both customer service and professionalism that I have encountered every time I come to Desert Dental. The staff is always cordial and flexible in terms of making last minute appointments. Compared to past dentists I can see the treatment I receive is thorough and I believe my diagnosis all genuine. I would highly recommend this dentist and genuinely felt inspired to write this review after receiving top notch treatment. Thanks!

Dr. Brian and His Sister who is also a DDS  are wonderful . My Hygienist was very pleasant and painless with my deep cleaning . Marlem at the Front Desk will make you feel welcome and part of the Desert Dental family with her professional attitude and friendly disposition . I have been coming here for 7 yrs. and highly recommend .

★★★★★

From the front office to the dentists, it’s where I feel comfortable getting my dental care. They’re kind and trustworthy. Dr. Brian listens to my concerns and explains everything I want to know. I haven’t met friendlier staff than at this office. Marlem and Lisa are great. Erica, the hygienist, is best at what she does.

I’m really fortunate to have a dentist office like Desert Dental Group. I been a patient since 2000 and their done phenomenal jobs with my teeth, from braces to removing my wisdom teeth. Dr Brian and his sister Dr Brita are extremely knowledgeable and spend the time with their patients. They have a friendly staff who makes sure you are as comfortable as possible in every visit you make. After years of been a patient of Desert Dental Group I highly recommended to everyone.

Well, I would like to say this is North Hollywood BEST kept secret, but the reality is it can’t be..lol Dr. G ( Dr. Brian ) is one of the most professional, personable Dentist I have ever encountered. He’s great with all ages ( Great with children ). I’ve been coming to him for over 10 years and have no regrets , just positive things to share. If you’re anything like myself, you want someone that really knows their art ( work ). He’s like a Bruce Lee with the skills the only difference is, he’s a Master of dentistry.  I always get excellent service, the staff is wonderful, kewl and down to earth. It’s important to have a relaxed comfortable environment at you’re Dentist and Doctor office. I have come across quite a few dentist in my life and he’s the only one in California that I will see. I currently live in New York and fly to California to visit my Dentist Dr. G. I’m all about real people doing real things and that’s rare to find in these time. So I will continue to fly back and fourth to the West coast just to see… You got it  DR. GGGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!! Oh did I mention he’s sister has excellent skills also.. Ahh and no, I don’t own stock in the company..lol I’m just saying.. Oh, to Yelp, can you make sure these message is seen and not discarded ( by mistake ).. Please don’t have me to yelp Yelp.. lol I’m just saying!!!

Loved the office. I’ve had several dentists in the past and i know how difficult it can be to find a good dentist that u can trust. Last year I was told I needed to have gum surgery and I absolutely didn’t want to go through that so I decided to get a second opinion. I heard about desert dental from one of my Friend so I decided to give them a shot. I was really comfortable from day one at Desert dental. After few non surgical gum treatment my gums are as healthy as it can get. I’m reeeeeeeally happy I avoided the surgery.

I’ve never felt as comfortable as I did sitting in the dental chair at this  office than I have at any other office. Dr. Shahangian is simply Honest, Caring,Friendly and most important of all extremely competent of what he is doing. Comfort is one of the main goals of this Dental Office and they accomplished this goal within my first . I’ve recommended all my family and friends and i’ve gotten the same review from all of them. The staff is amazing and they provide exceptional results The best dental experience

I am ashamed to say it, but the last time I visited Dr. Brian was last September for a regular teeth cleaning and checkup, and before that, I can’t even remember when my last cleaning was done. So horrible! The good news is that I am the type of person who ALWAYS carries a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss in my purse and I brush at least three times a day. No matter where I’m at, I make sure to brush! So that has kept me from getting cavities and the like. So when I visited Dr. Brian last year, I was very impressed with the facilities and the ladies working at the front (especially Lisa). She was friendly, personable, and when I called to make an appointment prior to coming in, she was very willing to work around my schedule. I was referred to Desert Dental Group by a coworker and I am so happy that I made the call, because Dr. Brian really knows his stuff! He performed a periodontal exam, which I had NEVER gotten done at any other dentist. Basically, it’s supposed to be routine with every cleaning and it was absolutely unheard of to me. He showed me how to properly floss my teeth ( I was doing it all wrong) and really took the time to listen to my concerns and provide his expert advice. With that being said, I scheduled an appointment a week from now to come in and have another cleaning done and perhaps I will be coming back to get a deep cleaning after that. I already referred my best friend and boyfriend! My road to healthy gums and teeth is set with Dr. Brian!

Marlem is the best scheduling coordinator ever!! Everyone here is quick efficient and sweet. I got to watch HGTV!!! That took my mind off of them working on my teeth. They did an impression for a night guard and that went really smoothly. It even tasted like strawberry. Yum 🙂 I used to live close and moved far away but still come back just because they’re so amazing!

I’ve been coming to Desert Dental since 2007 and absolutely love it! They straightened my teeth with Invisalign, so they were perfect for my wedding in 2009.  Cleaning by Julie has always been gentle and she’s so sweet. Dr. Brian, Marlem at the front desk, and the entire staff is the best! They feel like family. Case in point, I was greeted with warm hugs when I announced my pregnancy to them today. Oh, and I should mention the new massaging chairs while you get your teeth cleaned are a nice touch! They keep the place up to date (including medical equipment). This is the second renovation I’ve seen since I’ve been there.
