Dr. Edalat and staff were very professional and courteous. I have been to about three dentists in the last 5 years (I move a lot) and I can easily say that this office surpasses the others. Not only was it extremely easy to reach the office and make an appointment but the receptionist seemed to be very knowledgable and extremely nice. I had many questions and she was able to answer them and if she was unsure she went out of her way to clarify. The wait time was very quick (probably 10 minutes) which I was truly surprised by, being a person that ends up waiting more than 40 mins when going to other dentists! Dr. edalat was very personable, professional and knowledgeable. The cleaning went well and I ended up fixing 3 cavities that were bothering me and the whole process was explained very well! (Major points cause I like to know what a dentist is doing rather than blindly trusting them) To my surprise the only part that was uncomfortable was the initial shot but otherwise no discomfort and Dr. Edalat made sure to check up on me as the process continued! Wow I usually don’t write this much, anyway Dr. Edalat is great and I believe I have finally found the dentist for me! I also recommended Dr. edalat to a coworker who says she had a great experience and will be going back again

Marlen E. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Edalat and staff are super friendly. Went in for an emergency because my molar had cracked and they were able to do treatment the same day. I consider myself young and lucky to be able to save my tooth thanks to Doctor Edalat. We will continue to make my routine checkups

This Dr is very nice and does great work. Explains everything before doin any work. I recommend this Dr highly. I live in Pasadena and I’m willing to travel from a far he is very nice, staff was very nice as well

Anahita K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was my first visit at this office. The moment I walked in the staff greeted me.  The wait time was short and everything was well organized and clean. The doctor was very friendly and explained everything in detail. The office staff were very helpful.  The work done on my teeth was excellent. I will definitely return and recommend friends and family

Steve M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Whittier Dental Clinic is changing the way I viewed or generalized all dentist practices. I have completed my first half of my treatment, with the second one coming tomorrow, and by far it has been a pleasant experience at the dentist office. I can say, I have found my new dentist office. Thank you all at Whittier Dental Clinic

Parisa T. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have super sensitive teeth and every time I need to get a cleaning I need to have my mouth numbed especially since the dental hygienists sometimes are not as gentle and knowledgeable!  Not only is Dr. Edalat’s office one of the most affordable good care dental practices I have ever been to, he also does the cleaning himself!!! He’s gentle and good:) this office, unlike many other dentists does not try to rip me off and offer me unnecessary dental care.

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


Great service! Dr and staff are very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend for the whole family. Continues to be outstanding in every aspect.  From the time you make an appointment, and all the way through, the care, the customer service, the knowledge of the staff.  Simply Outstanding! Thank you!

Maria C. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently went in for a cleaning and teeth whitening with Dr. Edalat.  My overall experience was really great considering it was my first time coming in.  I was very impressed with the staff who immediately made me feel welcome.  There was nearly no wait time between the time I walked in, filled out paperwork, did my X-rays, my cleaning, and my whitening.  Hands down, it was probably one of the most enjoyable dental experiences I’ve had yet.  Dr. Edalat did an amazing job at ensuring I was comfortable, answered all of my questions, and was 100% satisfied with my results.  I’m definitely going back for my next cleaning… and whitening.  Thank you Dr. Edalat and staff for my whiter and brighter smile! You guys are the BEST!!

DeLana M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first visit with Dr. Edalat yesterday and may I say this visit went way better than expected. I had been in search for a dental office closer to Whittier (my home). I also went in looking for professionalism, and welcoming smiles, and communication, what I was drawn to from my other office out in Los Alamitos. I got all of the above. I was very please. The assistants were so NICE! EVERY LAST ONE of them were, and the Dr, he explained everything to me thoroughly and precise. I really appreciated that! I got my teeth cleaned and I had a molding done for my crown for a chipped back tooth. My temporary was put on yesterday as well. this ALL took only 3 hours, when it could have taken longer but they didn’t stop working on me until I was pleased and done! Thanks to all the ladies there that provided me with the warm welcomes and the smiles and the knowledge of everything I needed to know. I have an appointment to go back in two weeks to get my permanent crown put on and im inquiring beaching! Thanks for making my visit worth while! I do recommend this office for anyone who is looking for a nice dentist office like I was. 🙂 P.S. I have never went to a doctors nor dentist office that offered Netflix to watch during your visit, THAT WAS SO AWESOME!

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


I needed a root canal and checked prices. A specialist wanted $1490 for only the root canal. I Googled and found the  Dr Edalat. He did an outstanding job and I was able to get the  crown and rootcanal done there. Highly recommend Dr.Edalat!!

Dee V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found this doctor in zocdoc and after seeing his yelp reviews I was comfortable enough to make an appointment, I have a regular dentist in Encino but the drive becomes a nuisance. I showed up and was greeted kindly, and seated within an ample time. The doctor came in and greeted me, I can tell that his assistant had already briefed him on my concerns and background because he came in knowing me a little. We chatted for a bit, went over my needs and concerns then he stepped out. The treatment coordinator went over my treatment and at no point was she pushy, this is a big plus. I come from dentistry myself 20 years assisting and managing heavy operations. I’m adamant about not being pushy with your patients (you catch more bees with honey). Doctor came back in for my cleaning which was thorough. His bed side manner is impeccable and he talks to you with the utmost respect. Overall, I had a great experience here. I even made a 6 month appointment. The coordination and hand off from assistants and doctor were there, I hate having to repeat myself to the doctor when I already told the assistant my issues, this was not missing. You’re doing a great job here, and I plan to bring my family soon

Steven E. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a Whittier resident who was looking for something close and convenient.My old Dentist retired and have really never found a good replacement. I have a crown that was to big the bite was long. I notified my old Dentist about this being he installed this crown. He informed me that he can shave down the crown, that didn’t work now he wanted to shave down my real tooth under it. I told him the deal was to keep my real teeth! Wth? Dr Edalats office was close and really friendly. I told him what’s going on and they recommended a new Zorconium crown. Price for the crown was good, and it fits amazing.  I no longer h ave jaw pain. That was the main idea.

Cathy W. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for several years and although I hate the dentist I keep going back! They have never hurt me and I have had alot of work done. Dr. Edelat promised me that my teeth would be perfect when he was done. I will continue to go there, great staff, great Dentists!

Josie L. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was very happy with my experience at the dentist. I felt very relaxed and was reassured everything would be okay and that I will be okay. Everyone was friendly and made me feel comfortable. I haven’t had a good experience with any dentist until I came here. I was so anxious, but they were great.

Arlene G. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is awsome !! The Dentist is caring & has great knowledge. He gives you all the information on the care (treatment ) that you may need. The women in the front office from . Nancy. To all the women behind the desk are awsome sweet, kind & caring . I have NEVER had a bad experience

Rachel (Source: Healthgrades)


Dr. Poria Edalat is wonderful! He is very caring and clearly wants to help his patients. He is very friendly and will explain everything to you. Dr. Poria Edalat takes his time with his patients and makes sure they are comfortable. I’ve always been seen in a timely fashion and the staff are very friendly. I loved my experience here and will be coming to Dr. Poria Edalat as my permanent dentist.

Milly B. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Definitely the best dental office with the nicest and very professional staff!! I lost part of my tooth and Dr. Edalat was able to help me in just a couple of hours although his office was super busy that day!! He fixed my tooth with no pain and took pictures before and after to show me what exactly he did. He also explained everything he did and told me how to take a better care of my teeth. There was absolutely no wait between the time I walked in, filled out paperwork, did my X-rays and got my tooth fixed. Dr Edalat did an awesome job!!! I’m definitely going back!! Everyone in the office was very friendly, super helpful and made me feel very comfortable! I highly recommend this dental office!

Emilio G. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is so kind and caring! You walk in, everything is clean and you are greeted right away. The atmosphere is very welcoming and they don’t treat you as if you’re just another sale! The dentist is very busy, so sometimes there is a small wait, but it is definitely worth it after he helps you with everything you need. Nancy is very informative and makes you feel taken care of! I recommend this dental office to everyone! 🙂

Zayra H. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went in last week and I can only say this is the best dental office. As soon as i walked in i was greeted by the girls in front desk who are super nice and friendly and make you feel at home. I was called in, saw the dentist and it al went great!!! Definitely going to come back. I will most definitely refer family and friends. Staff is bilingual so that’s awesome and convenient for many!

Elenie E. from La Puente, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love this office the staff are amazing they make sure you always feel great and taken care of! They treat you like close family, I highly recommend this office you won’t regret it 🙂 thank you so much Dr. Edalat and Nancy for being so amazing

Jonah Waltz from Whittier, CA (Source: Healthgrades)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Saman Edalat for years , he is amazing !! He always cares for the needs of me and my family . My kids have been seeing him since they were 1 year old and I have never heard them cry even once . Simply the best !

Ruth L. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental office by far. My daughter loves going and she’s a nervous wreck. She likes that Dr. edalat explains everything to her. She needed a root canal and like any other 13 year old she was nervous. While in treatment dr edalat would explain to her what he was doing and I think that’s what made her calm. Communication is key and this office has it. It’s great to find an office with such great service

Rio R. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a little pain in one of my teeth. Called Dr edalats office and they gave me an appointment the same day. Same friendly staff on the phone and when i got there. Place is always very welcoming and clean. Dr edalat looked at my tooth and did an X-ray and determined i had a cavity. The whole procedure was quick and it is awesome to watch tv/Netflix while he is doing his job. After i was told to wait few our before i eat something. My pain is gone and i am once again thankful to dr edalat. Nice work and thanks a bunch!

D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Edalat for the past four years, and I highly recommend him. I’ve been living in LA for the past six years, and my first two years I just went to different dentists. Two years ago, Dr. Edalat moved to this new location, but it was too far for me (almost 45 min drive without traffic). So, I tried a few other dentists that were closer to my house. I went from not having any cavities, to needing crowns or multiple cavities, according to some of those dentists. I never felt that warm patient-doctor relationship. I feel Dr. Edalat is an honest Dentist, and truly, genuinely cares about his patients. Therefore, I’m gladly making the 45 min drive back and forth every 6 month, knowing my teeth are in good hands. He takes his time to explain carefully what he is doing, and why he is doing it. Moreover, if there is a problem, then he gives me a thorough explanation of what is needed to get it fixed, and what happens if it is not fixed

Tomaj F. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hade problems with 2 of my teeth that my previous dentist hade done a very bad job on. The work of my previous Dentist resulted in one root canal and 2 crowns.  I called Dr Edalat and told him about my problems and he gave me a appointment the day after while Being very busy. The Dr did a complete check up, a root canal and preparations for 2 crowns in one appointment. Dr Edalat and all of his staff where very kind, caring and very professional. The clinic it self was very clean and hygienic. I had a vey good experience and I give Dr Edalat’s clinic 10 stars and I also recommend It to all my friends and family!

Monica A. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Can I give this place 7 stars? I love this dentist. The entire staff is awesome and attentive. I have lived all over the country and been to many dentist, so when I moved to LA and discovered Dr Edalat i was thrilled. Thank you!

Claudia M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have lived in Whittier for 10 years and currently switched to this dental office and I am very happy I did. The staff was nice and helpful. I have gone twice this year and both times have been a great experience

Avideh A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Edalat has been my primary dentist for years.  Dr.  Edalat is professional I always have a pleasant experience with his office. Front office staff is very sweet and efficient which is a huge plus . Dr Edalat is always personable and gives you practical advice with out pushiness

Faviola T. from La Mirada, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just became a patient of Dr. Edalat.  I’ve had the best experience from day one. I hadn’t been to see a dentist in almost 30 years because of prior bad experiences.  But when I recently broke a tooth and was in severe pain, I had to find a dentist.  He and his staff made me feel so welcomed and relaxed.   They explained in detail step by step what needed to be done and before I realized it all went well.  I now look forward to going to the dentist and can’t stop smiling when going for my follow ups.  I also got my husband signed up with them also.  Thank you Dr. and staff.  You are my heroes!

Amillie G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found this center through my dental insurance. From day one i have been so happy with the level of service and professionalism this dentist office has! Super friendly staff!! They actually listen to what your problems are and advise proper procedures to take care of what is wrong, and the best part THEY DO NOT PRESSURE YOU! I knew what i had and they confirmed it without them knowing i knew what was wrong. I did appreciate they listen to my finance and they really worked with me! I will recommend this place to everyone

Maria S. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)

Hmmm well its been a while since my last visit to the dentist but I can clearly say shaman edalat is the best dentsist I’ve been too unlike my past dentist (Newport dental) he actually works with you , makes sure you leave with satisfaction.

Brandon D. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is absolutely amazing with all the new state-of-the-art equipment including very friendly staff and reasonable prices on everything and sometimes when it comes to dental work it’s not always about the price it’s about who’s doing the work because it’s a permanent decision you have to make for work that’s being done in your mouth. Not only do I go here but now my wife does and a few of my friends, thank you guys very much for all the work you guys do and all the work you still have to do for me.

M. R. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this Dentist! I went to the Dentist office right across from Dr. Edalats Office they messed me up real bad and I had a major infection I ended up going to Dr. Edalats Office and I never left they are truly amazing and caring I  recommend Dr. Edalats Office to everyone that ask for a Denist Most of my Family are  patients and they are also good with Children I highly recommend

Robert L. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just moved in the area and I needed a dentist. After searching on yelp, I went in for a check up at Dr. Edalat’s office, pretty nervous (as I always am for a dentist) and the first thing I noticed was how friendly the staff was. Nancy greeted me politely as I checked in and as I sat waiting, she made conversation and helped me feel a little more comfortable. When Dr. Edalat finally saw me, he was friendly and gentle in my mouth as he told me exactly what I needed done. I had some questions but everything was answered and he took the time to explain what, why, and how he was going to do the work (something that other dentists have never done for me before). It made me a lot more comfortable at the dentist. I don’t write reviews often but I feel like this office deserves the time; if you live in the area, I highly recommend  going to Dr. Edalat for your dental needs.
