Dr Mungcal is a great dentist!  I had a crown a few months ago and he did an excellent job.  He was quick yet thorough  and the whole procedure was done at one time in his Manhattan Beach office.  I love the whole staff.  They are very efficient and knowledgeable in their fields.  I especially love my dental hygienist, Marie.  She is gentle yet thorough and never rushes you.  Your teeth are then checked by Dr Mungcal who makes sure to ask you if you have any questions or concerns!  Just love this office!

I am the poster child for being afraid of dentists after a bad experience with a dentist over 10 years ago. So when I finally found the courage to go to a dentist, this one was recommended to me. After explaining my history with dentists to them and being very uncomfortable and on the verge of having an anxiety attack, this staff was very patient with me. They gave me a warm blanket, soothing talks and tissues to dry my tears as I went through the dental procedure. They even sent me a SIGNED birthday card from the entire staff.

I love this location. I’ve been coming here a little over a year. I did my Invisalign treatment here. Done already and i was satisfied at the end. The staff is very friendly, caring and funny. Always go out of their way to give you great service. Shontae is my favorite one though. I always want her to clean my teeth because she does an amazing job at it. We always talk about random things about life, she’s like a friend. Haha. Any way, I highly recommend this location.

Downtown Dental is the best dental office in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles! I just got 3 fillings done by Dr. Mungcal and his assistants Susie and Alex, and let me say that they were terrific!!! No pain and my teeth feel better than ever! I ate some subway after treatment and did not have a problem 🙂 Thank you so much to everyone at Downtown Dental for taking such gentle care of me and making me feel at ease!!! Cannot wait for my next dental appointment 🙂

I care about my teeth. Deeply. And I care about my teeth health as much as any other part of my health. That’s why I came to Downtown Dental. I’m new to Los Angeles, and a friend of mine told me to check out Downtown Dental. He said they were the best dental office in LA and I took him up on his recommendation. He wasn’t kidding. From when I walked in the door to when I left I felt supported and cared for. The wait time was very short, the cleaning itself was expertly done, and I learned more about my all around dental health than I have from any other dental appointment. I’d specifically like to call out Priyam, who cleaned my teeth and talked me through some things I was worried about. Also, I received more detailed and direct advice than “you should floss more,” although that was part of it. I didn’t have a lot of problems with my teeth, but I feel motivated to be as clean and healthy as possible… Like my hair, I want to keep all of them… In short, I’ve found my Dental Home Base in Downtown Dental. And I’ll be getting another cleaning with Priyam in half a year! NOTE: Something else I didn’t expect, but was very happy about was a follow up the next day to check on how things were going. Again, I’ve never received this level of service from a Dental Office and they’ve won a loyal supporter.

Downtown Dental is absolutely fantastic. I’m literally 36 hours out from having two of my wisdom teeth removed, and my friends and family are surprised at how well I’m doing. The procedure was painless (with the exception of a pinch from the needle used to numb my gums), and I have had no swelling or pain post-op. Dr. Mungcal is friendly, smart, and attentive. He checked in on me throughout the procedure to make sure I was doing okay. He makes the time to answer my questions, and I feel comfortably knowledgeable about what needs to be done after speaking with him. I also have to mention the excellent rest of the staff. Everyone is really friendly and tries to make your dentist experience as pleasant as possible. Susie is awesome. Allison, one of the hygienists, is also really great. I had seen her previously for a deep cleaning (which was also painless), and during my wisdom teeth extraction, she came in to say hi–even though she wasn’t working on my procedure. Brandy is also friendly (notice the pattern!), as she called me the day after the extraction to ensure I was doing okay. I seriously cannot recommend this dentist office enough!

Downtown Dental has the best customer service out there! They made me feel comfortable and there all friendly so it made it so much easier for me to get dental work done. Shout out to Patty and Allie who made it all so simple from setting an appointment to painless dental work!! I recommend this to anyone who really care about there dental hygiene, they have easy payment and work with your schedule to make it easier for you.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.

If your looking for an efficient friendly office… Downtown Dental is the place to go. Everyone at this office is really nice, I like how they take the time to answer any questions that I had. They took my dental insurance which makes everything easier. What I appreciate the most is that they have a parking garage and validate for my entire appointment. The doctor and dental hygienist were thorough. I recommend this dental office to anyone who needs a new dentist!

Edgar P. from San Fernando, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Downtown Dental for over 8yrs. I got my teeth straighten, a root canal with the crown done the same day! My teeth have never looked so good! Kris is one of the young ladies you will meet and she takes good care of you she truly cares about your dental fears. I can say Dr Mungcal is the Dentist for all my family. My mother just got her teeth done and she can finally eat corn and enjoyed it! My two kids get three teeth cleaned and enjoy being in good company! 9So happy to be a patient of Downtown Dental!

Natalia L. from Montclair, CA (Source: Yelp)


Downtown Dental has by far been amazing to me their team always makes me feel at home, especially their Receptionist Jessica Is so warm and welcoming!! I was nervous about having the new doctor (Dr. Ray) work on my fillings because I was so used to Dr. Mungcal but Dr. Ray is so gentle and makes sure I am doing okay through out the process I would definitely recommend him and let him work on me again! Their dental assistant Susie is amazing on making sure I’m okay as well! Thanks guys!!(:

I’ve never had a dental experience like this before. Everyone was super friendly and genuinely cared about each patient. They remember you and make an effort to follow up after your visit. I’m moving to a different city and they even offered to ship medicine to my new address! Definitely would continue my dental services here!

Janet H. from Westchester, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just want to thank the staff at Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions for making my visits so welcoming and comfortable. Marie is the best  dental hygienist ever!!  Kris and Tracy are always so helpful and knowledgeable, amazing. I had a perfect crown done by Dr Mungcal, it was smooth and painless. A great group that works together well.

I’ve been coming to this dentist for years, as it was convenient for me when I worked in Downtown L.A. Now that I am retired, I still go there, because they have taken such good care of me. Dr. Mungcal is very friendly, patient, thorough and professional. His staff has always been great. They are equally warm and professional, and I feel like I’m among friends whenever I go there for a visit. I strongly recommend Downtown Dental!

Marie G. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommend using Downtown Dental for all your dental needs! I just experienced a deep cleaning and the Dental Hygienist, Priyam, was very gentle and performed an excellent job on my teeth and gums. The staff are super friendly, helpful and knowledgeable, not to mention Dr. Mungcal is very patient and thoroughly explains what procedures will be performed to insure a healthy beautiful smile! Thank you very much Downtown Dental, in just one cleaning, I’m very happy with my results.

Jessica Lima (Source: Facebook)


Most updated equipment ive ever seen in a dental office, pain less wisdom teeth extraction and comfortable throughout the entire process. Dr.Mungcal, Lali and the entire staff make a great team!! Thank you Downtown Dental!

Diamond L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff over at Downtown Dental are so friendly & welcoming, omgoidness I really had a great experience, I went in with cruciating pain thought that I would of had to take it out & was also scared about the procedure to do root canal & crowning because of all the bad/ negative advice I was getting. However I gave it a shot was nervous but gotten it down, easy, no pain whatsoever, only took the ibroprofen because it was prescribed. The doctor was so gentle, was out of there in no time. Now I’m myself again after getting the root canal & crown done. Thank you guys sooo much. definitely recommended!

Christopher J. Barsoumian (Source: Google)


All staff members and medical personnel are extremely professional and catering specifically to customers specific needs. I have referred family members and friends and we all will be going back for future work. I am pleased that you can have a crown created and fitted on your tooth the very same visit bypassing the need to be fitted with a temporary crown and therefore returning for a second visit to complete the work. Thank you Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions for your honest care and wonderful dental work!

I‘m in Invisalign had 4 crowns and 4 root canals done, no pain and quick and easy! My teeth have never been so white, my mouth feels so fresh, my gums don’t bleed and I stopped clenching and grinding. Great office, fun staff, good music, they pay for parking and they really take good care of their patients !

Ismael A. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Don Mungcal. My dental implants and my new permanent teeth is perfect…and my smile is beautiful. My 9 dental implants all sit very well I feel like they’re my natural teeth. I would definitely recommend Downtown Dental And Dr. Mungcal for dental implants. Thank you also to Dr. Mungcal’s professional staff for their kindness and help. You all rock!!

Cathy V. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently had an appointment for my first crowning this past Wednesday. The office was really good about sending a reminder via text to confirm the appointment. Parking was so simple and convenient, I loved it! The minute I arrived into the office I was immediately greeted by such a great and welcoming staff! I was actually seen right away and was explained so thoroughly with how the procedure was to take place. Any questions I had were always answered with complete comfort and knowledge. Dr. Mungcal, Kris and the whole staff were so informative and had helped me to understand the condition of teeth and how to continue to care for it. As for my crowning, after explaining how the process works, I was fascinated and at awed with how fast and smoothly it went. Dr. Mungcal and Kris worked so well as a team. I was pretty nervous at first but the procedure was not bad at all. I was so comfortable the whole way through and trusted the whole process!! My crowning came out so perfect! It looks and feels natural as if nothing changed. It fits perfect and my bite feels normal. Thank you so much Dr. Mungcal and Kris!! You both were amazing!! After my numbness went away (an hour or so), I did feel a tiny bit soreness, but seem to be very normal considering after having a tooth crowned (which eventually went away without me even noticing it). I was able to eat later in the day and didn’t have any discomfort at all. I was good as new and carried on. By Friday afternoon, I received a follow up call from Kris to see how I was feeling. I thought that was so genuinely thoughtful and I appreciate how much Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions care for their patients. Was way cool. I’m so grateful to have such a great dental team to help take care of my health and SMILE!!  You guys are ALL AMAZING!!! Thank you!

This place was so calm and relaxing. I’ve never had a positive experience at the dentist before this. Between genetics and lack of dental education I do not have the best set of teeth. Every place I have visited previously made me feel embarrased about my abnormal teeth. Not Downtown Dental! They took their time and gave me a detailed explanation of what was going on. Then we discussed what we could fix and how we could fix it. They had financial options I was comfortable with, and spoke in terms I could understand. I asked a ton of questions and they we DELIGHTED (I was definitely impressed.) to answer them all. I just moved to LA and finding a dentist at Downtown Dental has been one of the least complicated processes since moving here. They were available over the phone and online. They were also able to see me urgently as my wisdom teeth started to come in unexpectedly. I highly recommend this place, especially if you are like me, and avoid the dentist due to fear or embarrassment. I am much more confident than when I walked in!

This place is ace. I moved to LA a few months ago and was looking for a new dentist. I did some internet research and this place looked great because they had pictures of their team on their website. Turns out… they are awesome! Each person on staff was kind, polite, and helpful when ever I had a question. Turns out I needed 4 crowns! They worked my appointments in before I had to travel and did a free follow up to adjust my bite. Also, they can print crowns right in the office so they make sure it fits, matches your teeth, and you don’t have to wait for 2 weeks. They even sent a lovely handwritten thank you card to my house after my first visit.

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


My name is Eulinda I am a patient at downtown dental. They are an awesome group of people. I am probably the biggest chicken with a severe dentistophobia (fear of the dentist) The team is super patient , kind and understanding. I have been a patient for almost two months now the longest time I have seen the dentist in my life. I can honestly say it has been an almost painless experience besides my MEGA fear I almost like the dentist now my last dental visit was October 2015. Dr Mungal and his staff are really good at their business I am facing my fear head on their alright with me I appreciate you downtown dental thank you and good night You get the gold star for your service to ME your super star patient I have dropped the Mic and walked off stage

Lynne W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today I went in to get my fillings done. I opted out of anesthesia because I wanted to go enjoy Taco Tuesday after. I figured I’d rather best through the pain than forgo delicious tacos that I wouldn’t be able to taste with a numb, slobbery mouth. PLOT TWIST: There was no pain at all and the entire experience was actually quite comfortable. Easily the most amazing and least stressful dental experience I’ve ever had. Thirty minutes after having two cavities filled, I’m stuffing my face with tacos and margaritas with no numbness or pain. Will definitely recommend this place to family/friends, especially those that have dental anxiety. Very professional and very patient-focused. Amazing people! Cheers!

Love coming to visit all the friendly people at downtown dental! Came in, got a smooth checkup! Come to downtown dental for all your dental needs! I love Allison, my hygienist! Kris is the so helpful, she answers all my questions! If you’re looking for a fantastic, thorough dentist, look no further, Dr. Mungcal and his team are the best!

Mike S. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Downtown Dental for about 5 years.  I have always found the staff to be very friendly and willing to explain the procedures.  Everyone from Doctor Mungcal to my hygienist, Priyam, to other members of the staff genuinely care about my comfort and check in regularly during procedures.  I have had a fair amount of work done and Doctor Mungcal is efficient, knowledgeable, and does great quality work!  Great choice for a dentist.

Moe N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I discovered downtown dental a year ago and I would tell you I had lots of issues with my teeth. And when I say lots of issues trust me a lot. I’d say downtown dental has helped me out with my issues. (1)What makes downtown dental special they take care of everything from A to Z in-house. There’s no other place you need to go, it’s a one stop shop,(2)the people,they smile across the board. When your tooth is hurting with those smile, the pain is definitely much less,(3) Katie cleans my teeth and she’s amazing. Very gentle and very good. Kristin always makes sure that everything is ready for me and when I’m running late or need something she makes sure she’s always there. Mara belle has always been there for me. And let’s not forget the Doctor himself because all of this would not be possible without him. I want to thank everyone in downtown dental organization. Thank you. I highly recommend this location.

The staff here on its own deserves the five stars. Everyone is so friendly and take there time to get to know you as a patient. There very easy to work with on what’s best for you in the long run with insurance and dental care. On top of them making you feel comfortable, you can tell that they actually care about you and your dental health. The parking is also super easy and they validate so you don’t have to pay. I’d highly recommend coming here!

This place has been my dentist my whole life and I won’t consider going anywhere else. Everyone is nice and accommodating and the doctor knows his stuff. I just had pinhole gum rejuvenation surgery and the results are awesome. The staff really looks out for your best interest and the doctor will assure you have a great smile…pain free too..

Katharine M. from La Crescenta-Montrose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been with Don Muncgal for almost 20 years.  Yesterday he examined and cleaned my teeth for me- I’m pretty sensitive, and he won’t do this as a rule since he has excellent hygienists.  But my first visit 20 years ago was about severe TMJ and Trigeminal Neuralgia.  I didn’t think there was hope.  I’m completely cured; was in a short while 20 years ago.  Since then I have had Invisalign braces, veneers, crowns- everything one would visit a dentist for.  Even a very scary episode with a growth which seemed malignant.  He referred me to an oral surgeon who had Dr. Muncgal remove the growth and send it out for a biopsy.  It was a nail-biter for me but it turned out to be benign. So, Dr. Muncgal is a dentist who is excellent in every skill in dentistry.  I can’t recommend him highly enough.  He’s a gentle artist, and his staff keeps him in line.  You won’t regret having him as your dentist.

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


I have been a long time patient of downtown dental and I used to HATE going to the dentist. The front staff is amazing!!! I really like how they text you to Remind you of upcoming appointments and they are excellent at verifying your insurance to give me an accurate copay amount… needless to say…No surprises. I’ve read some of the other reviews on here, and one thing that I want to say that Dr.Mungcal is very informative on what’s happening in your mouth. As a patient I decide how healthy or unhealthy I’m going to be. They never make me do anything I don’t want to do. I understand that their job is to make me aware of everything that could be wrong not just now but in the future and they help me understand that waiting could only make things worse but at the end of the day I decide how to prioritize the problems in my mouth. Needless to say I highly recommend this office if you’re looking for top-notch Dentistry with the most up date technology!!!!

I got an extraction here and they made me feel comfortable and always checked to see how I was feeling and doing ! Dr. Mungcal is easily one of the best dentist in LA.

Downtown Dental is the best! They provide fast, effective service. They also take the time to explain things in terms that are easily understandable. My hygienist Allison is great. I’m usually nervous going to the dentist, but she was very gentle. I will definitely be recommending Downtown Dental to all my friends.

Analisa M. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


At Downtown Dental LA they are a team of experts and they KNOW how to take care of you. I hadn’t been to the dentist in a long time and I was extremely​ nervous. I’ve been there for two appointments. Each time from the moment I got there, Brandi and Maribel welcomed me, guided me through my appointment, and signed me off with smiles. Kris and Shantae made sure I was okay during the whole process, shout out to Shontae and the jams to keep me calm during my cleaning. I had my first impressions done and Lupe made them a breeze. ​Dr. Don came in then examined my teeth and told me I had a few cavities… OH NO….So I came back for another appointment. Sussy, Lupe, and the Dr. made sure I was at ease during the procedure and helped me calm down, they were​ gentle and did an excellent job. I have trust in the team at Downtown Dental LA, I would recommend anyone who needs a good dentist to come here. They have the best quality team and equipment. They are also in the best location in DTLA, right next to museums and restaurants, you can make a day out of your visit to the dentist. Thank you Downtown Dental LA, I hope to see you soon for my next appointment!
