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

Rachel R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been lucky enough to have “Dr D” as my and my son’s dentist for the past 5 years.  The office keeps track of when we are due for appointments and calls to schedule so we are always on track with our cleanings and exams.  Upon entering the office, we are greeted by friendly and professional staff.  There is a light-hearted fun vibe in the office, immediately drawing us in to a cheerful and relaxed environment.  You get the feeling that they make an effort to know and connect with every patient.  Also the office is overlooking the airport, which is interesting to watch for any age patient!  Ever since my son’s first dental visit at age 4, the office has strived to make him feel special and important, even though initially he was very nervous and fearful.  Dr. D has a special quality that is hard to describe.  He is warm, highly professional, jovial, with a gentle hand and he is a calm clear communicator.  I always recommend Dr D.  He is absolutely the best dentist I’ve ever had.

Dr. Downs has been my dentist for over 20 years. I have always received excellent care from him and his office staff. This is a genuinely caring and non-rushed dental office. There is jazz music playing in the background, a great view from the office and every one there seems to truly enjoy their job. I highly recommend him for maintenance dental care, fillings, veneers, dental cleanings, etc. He did my veneers a few years ago and I still get compliments on my beautiful teeth to this day.

Such a amazing experience and such wonderful people. I would definitely come back. I have horrible anxiety when it comes to the dentist but they all were super patient and just nice ! Thank you Dr. Downs and all your staff..

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


I’m just starting to write reviews of every place I have been to…. I use yelp for everything, so it’s only right I contribute…. Sad to see someone had a negative experience with the Dr… But I have had nothing but positive experiences.  I’ve actually been going to him for several years, and the rest of my family has too.  I decided to move to NYC, kind of randomly actually, and had to have emergency dental work done. Dr Downs took care of everything… He even had a lab tech make me a rush crown before I Ieft… And he got rid of the stains on my front teeth.. Important because I’m an actress.  The office is nice and you can watch the airport.  It’s about a month later ( I just had to renew my subway card) and my teeth look and feel great. I got a call from the Dr. making sure everything was ok with my crowns and asking whether I had any issues.  WTF!  This never happens. I will def be flying to LA for my dentist visits! A good dentist is hard to find… Plus my spouse went to UCLA and I think that’s where he did dental school.  UCLA pride!

Sharron F. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I so sad too see a few bad reviews, I am so glad that I did not allow this too make my decision to not go. The staff was nice polite as well as professional, and Dr. Downs was patient and professional, and his work was out standing!!!! Love this place will return too get the rest of my work completed!

STELLAR DENTIST OFFICE. I am loving my new dentist office!  I was so happy that Dr. Downs was in my network. The front desk staff is very accommodating and polite. They were able to fit me in for a visit within just a week. They also have a system that sends you text and email reminders for appointments. Sam was my dental hygienist during my first visit for a cleaning. She is very gentle and always explains what is happening so there’s no surprises.  Miguel handled my x-rays and my crown placement.  He is super cool and very funny. He’ll take your mind away from the pain. Dr. Downs is an amazing dentist. He made sure that I got to meet with a colorist for my crown so that the colors match perfectly. He pays attention to all the details and that’s important. PROS: – Super friendly staff – Modern equipment – Wifi available – Accepts many insurance companies (Cigna and Care credit are the ones I know of.) – Quality dental work. CONS– None. If you’re looking for a new dentist, give them a call. You won’t be disappointed!

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


I always have a great experience at Dr. Downs’ office, as far as dental visits go.  The office is nice, clean and comfortable.  Everyone on the staff is very friendly and personable.  Whenever I have questions about my insurance (which is often as my company’s dental plan is a bit confusing), the staff checks it out and explains things quickly and clearly.  I love the technology provided for the patience benefit!  Once, I had a dental issue and after explaining it to me, Dr. Downs also pulled up a short video explaining the condition on a monitor right at the dental chair.  They show you your x-rays at your dental chair immediately after they are taken.  Great customer service!

Dr. Downs’ Dental office is state of the art, comfortable, convenient, courteous and always vibrant. He has a great demeanor and it has matriculated throughout his office. As a client there for 10+ years, they have always been reliable & reasonable, too. And now that we now have a 9 month old daughter, Dr. Downs’ office will be our entire family’s office for a lifetime.

I cannot begin to thank this office for being so caring and kind. It’s always a pleasure to come to this office and feel welcomed and your greeted with a smile. Dr. Downs is down to earth, kind and funny. He’s gentle while working on ur teeth and he makes you feel like part of his family. I’m glad I found a dentist that’s caring and not all about making his pockets fat. I am a Gederal employee and they blessed me today. I cannot thank the office for the good deeds they are doing for all of us in this crisis. Thanks again Dr Downs and staff.

Kerri H. from Winston-Salem, NC (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for 10 years and I’ll never go anywhere else!!! The best service… Always the latest technology being used… They are great communicators via email, phone, text, whatever you prefer! I have been so blessed by all the staff who remember me personally and always check in with me.  Dr. downs is the best!!!  Five stars all the way.  Highly recommend.  PM if you have questions.

Sally S. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is an excellent dental office with very caring staff. Dr. Downs is a patient, gentle and caring dentist with a great deal of experience. He is never rushed and is genuinely  caring about your well being during a procedure as well as afterwards. I have received great dental work for over 10 years and never had to have any of the work “redone”. There is great jazz music playing in the office,a great view from all the dental chairs and easy access parking underneath the building for $6.00 per 4 hours in LA! I highly recommend him!

I don’t like going to the dentist but Dr. Downs and his staff made me feel so at ease. They took care of my dental needs and told me everything that they were doing and they continually asked if I was okay . I have several more appointments but will face them with no fears because of his staff.

Bonnie L. Bradford (Source: Facebook)


I kidd you not when I say that, I am the biggest baby when it comes to actually going to the Dentist Office, and Dr. Downs understands me completely. I have been treated by him since 1991 and I refuse to go anywhere else. I get the very best care there is in all of L. A. County. Thank you Dr. Downs, you have the most professional Staff. My smile is so bright and attractive and I feel so confident when I have singing engagements or just speaking to others. You have a patient for life!

Imani R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. David P. Downs for 25 years. He is a doctor who takes pride in his work. His goal is to provide his patients with supreme service. Your dental work will be implemented with empathy. It does not matter if you are a long-time patient or new to his practice. The doctor believes in embracing all of his patients as one big family. His staff also embraces his tenets of professional and personal care. Which leads to my wanting to compliment one of his dental hygienist. Monica personifies what Downs Dental Corporation is all about: Providing A-1 service and taking the time in getting to know your patients. Monica-like his staff-will greet you with a smile and with a personal touch. She remembered my dental hygiene challenges during my previous visit and complimented me on my flossing/brushing/rinsing during my last visit. Monica also took the time to inquire about my progress with exercising. It’s the little things (asking me if I am still working out) that show that this dental practice even cares about you outside of their dental office. Downs Dental Corporation is more than a group of essential workers. They are a loving family who in turns sees their patients in the same light.

Absolutely love Dr. Downs and the staff at Downs Dental Corporation…If you are looking for a Great Dentist with an outstanding staff who are making sure everyone, including themselves, are safe during this Pandemic. Thank you for taking good care of my dental needs…YOU GUYS ARE THE BOMB!!

What I love most about Dr. Downs and his staff is that everyone treats me like I’m important and I matter. If I need any procedures done besides routine cleaning, I’m assured to be comfortable and well cared for. The office is clean, his dental technology is up-to-date and used effectively, and I don’t go broke to maintain my dental health. Dr. Downs is personable, knowledgeable, and respectful.

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


I just returned from my last appointment with Dr. Downs.  As always, I found the office staff to be cheerful, supportive,  and professional.  I was immediately welcomed by the receptionist and the friendly staff members greeted me as they passed by.  The hygienist was caring and took the time to show me how to take steps to ensure my complete dental health.  Dr. Downs himself, as in past visits, listened to my concerns and discussed my options in a thorough and caring manner.  The sense of humor and the pleasant demeanor of all the staff made the visit a comfortable one.  At Dr. Down’s office, payment options are discussed in privacy and the staff looks for ways to minimize the impact on patients.  I found Dr. Downs’ office to be top notch, as I have found them to be for the nearly 30 years that my family has trusted our dental needs to them.  I could not imagine going to another dentist.  My highest recommendation goes to Dr. Downs Dental.

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


For me, trips to the dental office are usually not fun.  However, going to Downs Dental is not so bad!  I like that I don’t have to wait long before someone to calls me to go to the back, appreciate how they comfort me (and gently rub my shoulder) right before a shot and like that I am constantly asked if I am OK during procedures.  I have had Invisalign, bleaching and other work done here and my teeth look GREAT.  I get compliments on my smile all the time. I have referred lots of ppl to this office but felt that it was time to share my experience with the general public.  Those who write negative reviews for this office are probably just all-around dentist haters or unhappy ppl.

Melanie L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s probably important to say that my dentist was my father until he retired several years ago.  After searching for a replacement  (admittedly not an easy task) I found Downs Dental.  I was pleased with the office and the staff as soon as I walked in.  Everyone is professional and friendly, and the office is always spotless, with state-of-the-art equipment.  Most importantly, Dr. Downs is an amazing dentist. Over the past 6 or 7 years that I have been a patient, Dr. Downs has performed several procedures, including root canals.  Without exception, he always takes time to explain treatment options and makes me feel comfortable asking questions. I never feel rushed and have always felt that Dr. Downs is genuinely committed to delivering the best possible care. Once I began going to Downs Dental, my husband followed.  Over the years we have recommended several family members and friends.  Without exception, each person has thanked us. If you’re looking for an excellent dentist, trust me, Dr. Downs and his staff will take great care of you.

I was referred to Dr. Downs after my dentist retired. Here is why his professionalism has exceeded my expectations. 1. Skills, attitude and attention to details are on a par with Dr. Lawrence Paxton’s. Many consider Dr. Paxton one of the top five dentist in Los Angeles during the last 50 years. 2. Staff is diversified and well trained. They clearly are reflective of Dr. Downs’ commitment to delivering the best dental care based on his client’s personal needs. 3. Office is well organized and the music ranging from Jazz to Motown allows one to take a journey down memory lane. 4. Every effort is taken to remind you of your appointment via phone, email or text. Adjustments are made quickly when necessary. 5. You are contacted for feedback about your visit before the end of the day. Needless to say, Dr Downs and his Staff receive my highest recommendation, Henry Ealy

I have been a patient for more than 30 years. Dr. Downs has improved his dental practice and services year after year. Great place to have the dreaded dental work done, great staff, great practice and procedures and great views from the dental chair. Clearly his practice is first class.

We are now in a lifetime relationship!! I absolutely loved my dental visit. Dr. Downs is AWESOME and his staff is AMAZING!! I will now recommended all of my friends who are looking for a new dentist to definitively make an appointment.

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


Dr. Downs has been my trusted family dentist for many years. I hate painful experiences at the dentist and Dr. Down’s staff takes the extra steps to ensure the experience is as comfortable as possible. You are immediately greeted by his warm reception staff as you enter and the friendliness continues as you move to the patient treatment room which have windows allowing a bird’s eye view (from the 11th floor) of the planes landing at LAX. Dr. Downs has a good sense of humor takes time to show you diagrams, videos and/or tooth models to explain your condition.  The treatment staff always is patient to ensure comfort during the treatment process. Payment and treatment options are fully explained by staff. Any questions following treatment receive immediate and full attention. My family members also have full trust in Dr. Downs.  I gladly refer them to Dr. Downs for all of their dental needs. In short, Dr. Down’s office is everything I expect in a dental office and has continuously exceeded my expectations.

I was impressed with the courtesy and friendliness of Dr. Downs’ staff even before I met him. Once in, I was impressed with the up-to-date facility and equipment. Once I met Dr. Downs, I was totally sold! Everything was explained thoroughly so I could make my own decisions with no pressure. Definitely a five-star rating!

Lydia J. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Downs office by a coworker who suggested I try her dentist after I told her of horrible experience I had at another dentist. I called Dr. Downs office and the young lady that answered the phone was very helpful and informative. She was able to get me an appointment rather quickly and assured me that I was in good hands. On the day of my appointment his front office staff was so professional and courteous and that professionalism carried over to his back office staff.  Dr. Downs explained what I needed to have done and answered all of my questions, I am a bit of a dental chicken and I really appreciated his patience with me. This office is great and I am so thankful to my coworker for the great referral.

Johnny D. from Rialto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had an appointment at Down’s Dental today (been going there for 10 + years) and i just realized all this time, i have never regretted going to my dentist appointment there. They are very efficient, very professional, and very considerate of my time. If you are dreading going to the dentist, and really tired of getting poor service, I advise you to give them a call and set up an appointment. For years, I have been driving from Rialto, California to Los Angeles, just to go to the dentist and never regretted it.  Recently , My wife was complaining she was tired of  the poor service at the local dentist and after several complaints, this year she  finally decided to take the drive to Los Angeles to visit Down’s Dental. Now guess who is also a patient of Down’s Dental!!! As a matter of fact my wife and my kids have become patients of Down’s Dental, and we are all singing the same tune. Down’s Dental is the best.

I’ve been going to Dr. Downs Dental for over 20 years. My kids are patients, now my grand kids are patients. I have referred so many family members. They are professional, thorough, very high tech, neat and clean. I greatly appreciate their excellent friendly service and amazing technology. They ROCK!!

18 years I’ve been dealing with Dr Downs and the Downs Family of professionals. During this time I have received nothing but the best service the top notch equipment and Personal Touch make it impossible for me to go anywhere else to pay for my dental work. Dr Downs himself is a intelligent personable individual that truly cares about his patients. And he’s funny too! when you see him ask him about darkled and look at the expression on his face. as long as I have teeth Doctor Downs and his staff will be the only ones working on them.

I very seldom write reviews. Can’t say enough good things about my Dentist Dr. David Downs. This review should’ve been written almost 6 years ago when I first was introduced through a great friend. For example he explains what needs to be done in great detail with honesty and integrity. Throughout the years I’ve never been uncomfortable with pain or even long waits in the dental chair. I’m really greatful to have found this UCLA Dr. who is a perfectionist like myself.  I’m sure if they were running a car business, or another Dr. practice they would still carry the same ethics, honest and professionalism practice. I’m so glad to have found my Dentist for life.! If I could I would give them six stars. Keep up the great work!
