I had such a good experience at Dodds dental. I went there for clear correct to get a couple of my teeth straightened out. Every-time I called to make an appointment the front desk ladies were very sweet and accommodating. Also, when I got there I never had to wait because Emily and Dustin Dodds were on time. I am a full time student, so paying for my clear correct was very concerning for me. However, Dodds dental takes care credit so it made paying easy if your insurance doesn’t cover anything. The front desk helped me set up my payments and gave me all of the info I needed. Overall, everything was excellent! I will definitely be going to Dodds dental even after I am done with my clear correct trays. Also the aesthetic of the office is super cute, and comforting.

You will be impressed with the professionalism and kindness received at this office. Had a wonderful experience at the dental office today. Dr. Dodd’s and his assistant Shane were outstanding! Calmed my nerves for the dental procedure of replacing an old crown. All of the staff is pleasant and kind. Communication was great in all aspects…appointment time reminders and any balance remaining, etc. Left the office with a smile on my face!

I’ve had quite a few dentists over the years, all of them pretty excellent, but I have to say that Dr. Dustin is the best dentist I’ve ever had. He transformed my mouth! After years of dealing with serious work that needed to be done, and was constantly put off, he tackled the problem, and the result is nothing short of astonishing. Thumbs up for a real artist!

Dr. Emily Dodds is great, very professional, and always working to get the best possible dental outcome for me.  Both Dr. Dustin and Dr. Emily are US military veterans and run a tight operation; they don’t keep me sitting endlessly in the waiting room like some previous dental offices have. Janet at the front desk is always helpful and Kelly, the hygienist, does a fantastic job keeping my teeth clean and my gums healthy.

I literally never write reviews, but I have to say I’ve never had such an amazing dental experience in my life, and I’ve been to a few. They almost never make you wait for longer than 5 minutes which is always shocking to me when I have to wait over an hour at other places. The Dr. Dodd is awesome and explains things super well. Their technology is pretty top of the line and super cool. Their dental assistants are super friendly and helpful. The Cleaning — it was like a super fine detail clean. Like I’ve been going to the drive-through car wash my whole life, and I’ve finally experienced what a detail clean is.

Dodd’s Dental is the absolute very best! They are professional, friendly, knowledgeable, gentle, and caring.  I have 2 kids (6 & 12) and they absolutely loved the way Donna and Kelly (dental hygienist) cleaned their teeth! (Which was a first for my kids) The staff was patient and warm. The kids got to look at there X-ray and be apart of the dental cleaning experience.  They thought it was awesome! Thank you Dr. Justin & Emily Dodds. We will see you in 6 months.

I’m a new patient at Dodds Dental and the doctors and staff are quick and efficient!! I was fitted for a night guard on this visit. The impressions were quick and easy and the price is just right!! Doctors and staff are friendly and helped make the appointment quick and painless!

Patty E. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dodd’s has been my dentist since I relocated to the area over 2 years ago. The staff is wonderful and accommodating, and the doctors are very professional and friendly! In the past I have not been comfortable at the dentist but this office has made dental visits easy for me, even with procedures outside of regular cleaning. Good advice for my particular issues and my teeth have never been happier or healthier. I recommend them to anyone who asks.

I recently moved to Long Beach and needed to find a new dentist and I was a little nervous because I had some less than great experiences with other dentists in the past. Dr. Dustin and the team of hygienist turned out to be fantastic. They answered every question I had and have been very accommodating and easy to work with. Unlike other places I’ve been, I’ve always felt welcome at Dodds Dental. And I have to say, the results have been fantastic. If you need a dentist, I wouldn’t hesitate to call – Great team!

Kealan S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Started searching for a dentist of about 10, narrowed it down to 4, then finally decided on Dodds Dental and so glad I did. Without insurance they helped me by offering a program through Kleer to help pay for the number of things I needed fixed, but that was the least they did, I’m not a fan of the dentist, but Dr. Dodds is a true professional at his craft and the staff is a reflection of that. Shane’s assistance only made the visits easier. I would highly recommend Dodds Dental to anyone looking for a new dentist.

My husband and I always have a great experience at Dr. Dodds. The office is beautiful and the staff always friendly and professional. Teeth cleaning, cavities and crowns have all been an easy experience at Dr. Dodds. If your new to the area, or looking for a new dentists, give Dr. Dodds office a call, you will be very happy.

Kealan Southwick (Source: Google)


Not a fan of the dentist, but these guys couldn’t have made it easier. Not only were they able to help with the cost through Kleer, Dr. Dodds couldn’t have been more light handed, thorough and calming. The staff is great too, very eager to help. Shane’s assistance only made the visits easier. I would highly recommend Dodds Dental to anyone looking for a new dentist.

Been Going to many dentists over the years with a lot of dental work. I would highly recommend Dodds Dental. I’m not a friend of the office staff or the dentist. I have never had crowns installed with the fit and precision that I experienced at this dentist. They only do what’s necessary, and do not try typical tactics that I’ve experienced in the past. I’m sending my entire family to this dentist and would suggest if you are looking to make sure you put Dodds at the top of your list to give them a try. Couldn’t be happier.

Moved from the north of the county and less than thrilled about visiting our dentist’s office there. Picked Dodds out of convenience, but how lucky we have been! Staff is amazing. I had one dentist and my kids had the other. Both earned high marks. This is most important for the kids as they were particularly dissatisfied with our previous dentist. Facilities are top notch with convenient parking right in the building.

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


Dr Dustin Dodds is a master at his craft. He’s precise, fast yet has attention to detail. He also is conservative about what needs to be done to address your needs. The entire staff is friendly and professional. I’ve been a patient for years and recommend Dr Dodds to all m my family and friends.

We hit the jackpot with Dr Dustin and Emily Dodds. The office just had a major renovation done and it looks fantastic. The staff is super friendly and goes out of their way to accommodate where possible. Being new parents to an almost 9 month old we want to instill good oral hygiene habits; Dr Emily and Dr Dustin help make that possible by educating us. We are grateful to have found a great personable dentist in the neighborhood.

I had a wonderful first experience! They took care of me thoroughly and made me feel confident in my dental health and comfortable in my surroundings. Their office is so welcoming, and not intimidating or pushy like other dentists I have visited! I am definitely giving Dodd’s Dental 5 stars! Also, come to find out my mom visited Dodd’s dental years ago and she also said she loved their office and appreciates their work!! Thank you to all the staff there for their hard work and great welcome!

This was the best dental office experience I’ve ever had. They were friendly, comforting, and validating. From the welcoming first call to meeting Madison upon walking in, to working with Shayne who was very accommodating and attentive on x-rays in preparation for the appointment, to the calming and informative Dr. Dustin Dodds constantly checking in with me throughout the dental exam, this was an excellent overall experience. Dr. Dodds made me feel at ease, unlike many other previous dentists. I look forward to coming back to this office knowing that I will be treated kindly and fairly. What a great team! Highly recommend!

My experience at Dodds Dental was wonderful! I recently moved to the area and was very overdue for a check-up/X-rays/cleaning. The office staff was helpful and Dr. Dodds was extremely professional and welcoming. It’s clear everyone here has your best interests at heart and wants your experience to be enjoyable. The office itself is clean and has a great energy for anyone looking for a positive dental experience. Happy to be calling this my new dental office!

Joni S. from Westminster, CA (Source: Yelp)


I felt very welcomed as soon as I came in through the door. The office was nice and clean, and the service I received was outstanding. The staff is great. They are very professional, yet personable, and really care about your health.  They actually make going to the dentist enjoyable. I got my teeth cleaned better than ever and had a cavity filled, all while watching TV, without any discomfort at all. They are in a great location with plenty of parking.  This was a fantastic experience. True quality the whole way through. I would recommend this office to everyone!

Ashley W. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is amazing!! My daughter had several procedures done at Dodds Dental with Dr. Emily Dodds.  Let me just say if your looking for someone to trust with your children its her.  Dr. Emily was great with my daughter.  My daughter never felt the injection, nor had any pain. The dentist had some cool distraction strategies.  They also have t.v. in the rooms for distraction as well. That was a plus for my daughter, so she wouldn’t move around. Over all the office is great.

As a newer patient who had the same dentist for as long as I can remember, I wasn’t sure what to expect when choosing a new dentist after I moved out of state. Based on my experiences over the last year, I highly recommend Dodds dental to anyone looking for a new dentist. Every single employee makes you feel welcome and comfortable throughout every visit. Staff is very knowledgeable and they truly want what is best for your smile. The staff is friendly (not to mention hilarious). Definitely check out Dodds Dental!

I hadn’t been to the dentist in YEARS because… well it’s the dentist. When we arrived to Dodds Dental I was immediately impressed and comforted by the office and staff, everything was clean, organized and they had cute decorations for the holidays which is just something I like to see at places like this. The staff was all super nice and helpful and answered all questions and got everything done quickly for us. As far as the actual treatment and clinical part they were absolutely amazing! They took time to explain everything they were doing, explained what was going on, pros/cons etc and most importantly they were not eager to beat up my teeth! Part of the reason I hadn’t been to the dentist in so long was because I felt they were quick to say I had cavities or needed procedures or just did things they said were necessary. Dodd’s Dental and Mr. Dodds himself was so generous and gave a game plan of what they were looking at and what was going to be done, didn’t feel uncomfortable or like they did anything overzealous. Very comforted and impressed and I won’t go anywhere else.

I was a bit nervous to go to a new dentist and avoided it for a few years after moving to Long Beach. Turns out I shouldn’t have been, Dr. Dodd and his staff are a pleasure to visit and I look forward to it now. They helped me with some immediate problems and I’ve been going for over a year now. The prices are very reasonable, they work quickly, and I’m always satisfied with the result. Would highly recommend to anyone.

As someone who has nightmares of the dentist, I can honestly wholeheartedly recommend this place. Everyone is very professional and caring. Sarah did a great job making me laugh and helping me through the beginnings of the appointment. Dr. Dustin Dodds is extremely knowledgeable and kind. The hygienist who did my cleaning gave me thorough advice when I asked for it. Give this place a try if you’re looking for a new dentist!

David W. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this dental office for many years… from back when it was Dr. Dunsworth. When he retired and sold the business, he did so to a truly great team: Dustin and Emily Dodds, both DDS. The same super friendly staff remains plus some additions. They’re all wonderful and I’m sure I can speak for the other clients as well when I say that they do a magnificent job on everyone’s teeth. Here’s your family dentist team, and you could not find a better one.

Caitlin A. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love Dodd’s! I had a cracked molar right before leaving out of the country on vacation. They made it happen and fixed it for me so I could enjoy my trip. They are all so nice and know what they’re doing. I transferred from another practice not knowing what I was missing out on. Thank goodness I made the change.

I recently have had to get a crown replaced. Shane and Dr. Dodd did a great job putting the temporary crown on. They were gentle and always asked if I was OK and made me feel very comfortable! I’m going back today to get the temporary taken out and I do not feel anxious or uncertain about how it’s going to go because I know I’m in great hands.

I’ve enjoyed going to Dodds Dental for over forty five years when it was originally Dr. Vitz, and more recently now Dr. Dodds. Originally, I began because I had a fear of dentistry. The hygienist, Sherry, was so gentle I could relax and nearly fall asleep. I now have a new hygienist, Donna, that is just as careful. I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. They’ve taken good care of my teeth as I’ve transition from a youthful person to a well seasoned person.

I come from southern, Ohio. A small country town, to a huge new place not knowing a soul due to my husbands work. With little dental options back home, you get what there is to offer. I had a terrible dental experience as a child, and the dentist isn’t my first pick with health options. I was surfing the web for a great dentist whom I could feel comfortable with, and listen to my concerns. I decided to call, Dodd’s Dental! I first spoke with heather, who instantly made me feel calm and almost like family! So soft spoken and sweet, listening to my every concern and problem. She got me an appointment the very next day and I couldn’t feel more blessed or satisfied. Dr. Dustin and Sarah were both just as amazing, while explaining over and above. I also, had a cleaning just today with, Kelly, who too, made me feel relaxed and helped me throughout my experience. I love the family atmosphere and appreciate the opportunity to be a patient! I’ve been to the dentist twice in one week, and that is huge for me!! Even upon leaving, Long Beach, next summer when my husbands work is complete, I can definitely see myself making the trip back to California for all my dental care! Thank you, #teamDodd #youALLrock.

We have been going to this dental office for almost 20 years!! We love Dodd’s Dental! The staff is friendly and gracious! You can get your teeth cleaned and learn how to keep a healthy smile! They are great with my kids, too!! My kids LOVE COMING TO THE DENTIST and so do I!

I am a new patient to Dodds Dental, I was referred by my wife Danielle. I have not been to the dentist for some time now in all honesty, due to partial fear of going to the dentist. I have to say Dodds Dental team has been nothing but amazing, from their customer service to their detailed explanation of procedures that needed to happen. They educated me at the same time making me feel comfortable. Dodds is honest and I really appreciate that. I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for an amazing dentist.

Ali A. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the best dental visit at this office. The entire staff is so friendly and professional, and the both Dr. Emily Dodds and Dr. Dustin Dodds are extremely professional and knowledgable. I was late for my appointment and Dr. Emily Dodds took me in after being 25 minutes late due to traffic and did a through and excellent job with my teeth. She stayed late after the office closed which is truly remarkable, and much appreciated. You can tell that she actually really cares about her patients!! I can’t stress how wonderful the staff is here and how wonderful the doctors are at this office. I will be coming back for years to come!!!
