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

Vickie D. from Lake View Terrace, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Stephen Howard aka Dr Supertooth is wonderful. 23 years ago my son got his 1st teeth cleaning there and when it was time for him to get braces he took excellent care of him. He would call and check on my sons progress after he pulled a tooth or adjusted his braces, he always talked to my son whenever he made those calls.  I started going myself many years later. Made sense to me if my child was so comfortable I would be too and I was and I still am. Only dentist I have ever gone to that does a cancer screening after your teeth get cleaned. I feel like everyone there really cares, we always share stories about our families. YES I AM A FAN!!! VERY SATISFIED WITH EVERY EXPERIENCE I HAVE HAD THERE!!!

Ross Z. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for years, because the dentistry is outstanding, and everyone is very friendly. When I get my teeth cleaned, I actually enjoy the experience because everyone is kind and engaging, but most importantly, I leave with cleaner and healthier teeth than I walked in with. Also, theyve always had some awesome video games in the waiting room!

My family has been going to Dr Howard’s office for over 25 years and I wouldn’t trust any other dentist to my families dental care. My 92 year old mother who had horrible dental care with prior dentists wanted to pull her teeth out. Dr Howard and his staff took care of her and treated her like a princess. This was a huge blessing. Additionally, his staff are caring and compassionate as well. They are all like family to my family.

My family, my whole family have been coming to see Dr.Howard for at least 35 years,,he is the best for all ages ,we will never go too another dentist unless Dr. Howard recomends us to.  We trust his word, and his work. Even now our adult children, still come to see Dr.Howard, he was their first dentist as children. The staff is wonderful, and very good at what they do. I never have any pain with any of the procedures i have gone through. My children have never said they dont want to go to the dentist, never.

I’ve been seeing Dr Howard since I was probably 10, when I called him Dr. Supertooth. He’s been consistently attentive, knowledgeable and honest. Along with his staff, he has delivered high quality care for the entirety of my relationship with his office. I’d strongly recommend him to kids and adults alike.

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


Dr. Supertooth is the best! He explains everything he does. He makes sure you are always comfortable no matter what you are getting done. And, he’s super cool. He takes care of my whole family. The entire staff is nice & kind which is super important for a dentist office. We all have only had good experiences. The office values your time and you never have to wait for your appointment. They are the best!

Shelly S. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Howard has been a fabulous dentist for my husband, son, daughter and myself for many years. People comment on our daughter’s smile all the time. It’s beautiful because Dr. Howard is a fantastic orthodontist too and did great work on both of our children. His expertise combined with his warm friendly personality make we want to refer him to everyone. His staff is also very sweet, professional and make you feel good about being there.

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


Friendly, understanding, knowledgeable, kind and patient. Can’t say enough good things about this place. :)) So happy i found them! My son is disabled and it has been hard to find a dentist that is not only willing to accept him as a patient, but also has experience with kids with disabilities. The doctor and the staff were amazing with him. They’re located in a nice area, nice building and beautiful office. 🙂

Heather S. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I always have such an Amazing experience with Dr. Supertooth! I find all aspects to be positive from each person in the office being so warm and wonderful to work with, to the treatment being handled diligently, comfortably & successfully. It’s so great to look forward to going to the dentist! So Grateful and I would recommend everyone & anyone to Dr. Supertooth!

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


I have been going to Dr. Howard’s office for over 25 years.  When i was a child, he would dress in a cape and tights and it was a very pleasant childhood experience.  He is the best dentist i have ever been too!  The office staff and dental hygienists are very nice and remember me every time.  Dr. Howard has filled small cavities without the use of novocaine and i never felt any pain.  I recommend this dental office to children and adults, i never had the typical “fear of the dentist” because all of my experiences here were wonderful.

Nicolette A. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Dr. Howard’s office all my life. He and his staff (especially Kim) are all amazing. They take their time with every patient and have always given me lots of attention and care. I got my braces here and my teeth are perfectly straight now. I highly recommend to everyone!

Pam G. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I took my kids to Dr. Supertooth for years & years.  He was great for them!  My son needed most of his baby teeth pulled by the dentist because for some reason they didn’t come out on their own.  My son ALWAYS had a positive experience from this dentist’s office.  Very strange & sad to read other Yelp comments that they didn’t have the same kind of positive & fun experiences my children did from this dental office.

Dr Howard is a wonderful dentist/orthodontist. He has fit both my daughter and I with Invisaligns and explains each and every procedure or cleaning in a way that’s easily understood so that you’re not wondering what’s going on. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I would recommend Dr Howard to anyone in need of a honest and knowledgeable dentist or orthodontist.

Rose F. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Healthgrades)


My family has gone to Dr. Howard for over a decade now. One of my kids has a fear of Drs., Dr. Howard & his staff are kind & patient with him and ease him through check ups & cleanings. My other son had braces & again staff & Dr. were very accommodating & helpful, my son’s teeth look great. We recommend his services.

Nicholas K. from Lake View Terrace, CA (Source: Yelp)


Cool doc, friendly staff, modern techniques including oral cancer screening. Class A building, office has great soothing view. Parking isn’t free, but you can park in one of several shopping center lots nearby and walk over. Very kid-friendly, too. Gotta love Dr. Supertooth.

Virginia Z. from Northridge, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent! Dr. Howard is the best! He is always detail oriented and very professional. Both Dr. Howard and all his dental hygienists are very skillful in their work and very caring towards all their patients! Very happy to have him as my dentist & orthodontist!

The office is so calming. Very inviting. They were already getting acquainted with us before my son’s info paper was done. They are not just an office. They really care about each patient care and go the extra in extreme dental cases too reassure you everything is going to be just fine. .

dr supertooth is the BEST, even if your kid nips him (HARD) on the finger… he is cool as cucumber. He offers in office general sedation! wit the help of a anesthesiologist, your babe can be fully out while he works his magic. He is kind, patient and great his with kids. he ROCKS!!!!!    He doesn’t wear the cape anymore, he and his wife are pretty hip in a Hollywood way.

Yasmin A. from Campbell, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going to Dr. Howard since I was a kid! The staff there is always friendly and kind. They take time to get to know you and make you feel comfortable. Dr. Howard is very knowledgeable about his field of study and is always willing to answer questions. Highly recommend he and his staff for any dental work you need!

Jordan H. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going here all my life. Moved away for a while and tried multiple different dentists before coming back to Dr. Howard. He’s always been honest and professional. Everyone is super nice and honestly, I feel like they’re part of my family. Disappointed to see some negative reviews since I would send people there without thinking twice.

Gerad G. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just recently went to Dr. Howard a couple of days ago for my daughter.  I have been going to him for the last five to six years.  But just the other day I had to take my daughter to get a tooth pulled.  The day before my daughters appointment, my daughter kept me up all night because she was scared.  I kept trying to reassure her that there is nothing to be scared of, I got tons of teeth pulled.  I can tell you enough good things about Dr. Howard and his staff.  When you are there they make you feel at home.  I highly recommend Dr. Howard and his staff, they are amazing.

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


Been going to Doctor Howard for almost thirty years.  He isn’t just a dentist for children, but adults as well.   He and his dental hygienists are very friendly and very good at taking care of the patients teeth/gums/any other mouth part.  I recommend his practice and service very highly.

A. L. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have gone to Dr. Supertooth (aka Dr. Howard) since I was 2.  He and the staff are warm, sweet, and always patient.  They are incredibly meticulous with their cleanings and when I referred a friend, she was amazed by how well they did their job.  It says a lot that I have gone to Dr. Howard for my twice a year checkups for 31 years now and (so far!) am one of the only people I know of with zero cavities.  The girls there do a great job, and he is a really nice man who makes you feel at home.


At Dr. SuperTooth, we provide you with superior dental healthcare from general family to cosmetics. We know that going to the dentist can be a scary experience and ensure our patients have the best experience possible. As a patient focused practice, you are our main priority. From initial appointment to our patient follow ups, our patients are in great hands. My Tarzana practice is centrally located in the San Fernando Valley. I have been here since 1977. My General Dentistry training was at New York University. Immediately thereafter I continued at Boston University School of Graduate Dentistry. My most recent educational endeavor was through the International Association of Orthodontists for whom I'm now a Senior Certified Instructor. Along the way I have earned various Masterships and Fellowships in Children's Dentistry and Orthodontics. I have a wonderful staff who have ALL been with me for a very long time. Please call to set up your appointment. Don't wait for a toothache, which I will be happy to treat, usually the same day. Dr Howard has been “working out” forever. He has competed in marathons, half marathons and triathalons. Today, his training partner is his wife, Nancy. Together they run, bike, weight lift, kayak, horseback ride and ski. It’s a great way to spend time together, and be outdoors. Diet is a daily concern for Dr. Howard. With all the exercise, there is a need to have adequate, healthy caloric intake. Foods high in refined sugar, and carbs, are kept to a minimum. Protein intake occurs twice daily. He believes that proper diet management is important for an ongoing healthy life. Besides his dental practice, which has been ongoing since 1978, Dr. Howard likes to read (preferring non-fiction), does three crossword puzzles daily, and spend as much time as he can tending his garden (predominantly cactus and succulents). Nancy and Dr. Howard are “dog” people. Their current “child” is Sunnie, who is a nine year old Golden Retriever. He loves to hike, play catch and most importantly, snuggle.
