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

Nat C. from San Jose, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a long-time patient (17 years now!) of Dr. Cardona’s. Her team is as personable and professional as ever. It’s my first appointment to her office since the pandemic hit, and it went smoothly. Zero health concerns over coming in for a cleaning as her office is always immaculate. Giovanna is the best dental hygienist. Very thorough and great bedside manner. This is a wonderful team.

Adam L. from Oakville, Canada (Source: Yelp)


Great Dentist! Everyone in the office is so friendly and helpful. Dr. C does a great job about making you feel comfortable during your time there. The office is also very clean and modern. When I am there I know I am in great hands! If you are looking for a dentist in El Segundo, look no further than Dr. Cardona!

Patrick T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cuong Nguyen is the best dentist I have worked with. I found this clinic through my insurance provider and decided to try it out. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Dr. Nguyen was very good at explaining concepts and discussing my dental issues with me. He takes a holistic approach to how he sees patients. The clinic uses top of the line equipment to make sure you receive the best dental care possible. I would highly recommend this clinic to anyone looking for great dental care in the El Segundo area.

Cisco B. from Redwood City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Overall I’ve had a very positive experience here. I’ve spent a lot of time at the dentist and orthodontist throughout my life, and this has been my best experience so far. I (admittedly) don’t take care of my teeth at the level that I should. They were very helpful in terms of making sure that I know what I should be doing, but at no point did it feel condescending. Everyone was very professional, the service is great and the technology is top notch. I really have no complaints at all. If you’re in or near the El Segundo area, I would definitely recommend this to you. That’s basically all I have to say. Great experience. No complaints. That’s it.

Silvia and her team are great! I was in town on a business trip and found myself in need of unexpected dental care. The Beautiful Smiles tram was able to fit me in within a few hours of my call and their service was top notch! Such a pleasurable way to experience an unpleasurable event!

April M. from Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing from the minute you walk in. The front desk employees are so welcoming and professional. The office is super clean and the dentist is extremely professional as well. I have been coming here for over 4 years and have never once had a problem with my teeth. I highly recommend this dentist.

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


Love my hygienist Kelsey and my dentist Dr. Nguyen. Both are so kind and compassionate, make me feel super comfortable, and ask me lots of questions to make sure I’m taking good care of my chompers. I have awful TMJ and there’s always something new happening with my jaw because I grind so much due to stress — Dr. Nguyen always offers helpful solutions. Free parking with validation. I rarely wait more than 5 minutes to get called in. Front desk super nice/friendly.

Bill S. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My old gold crown fell off. My dentist office is closed. I need it cemented back on stat! Thank God I found Dr. Cardona’s office on Yelp! Close to work and they were able to fit me in within the hour! The ladies at the front desk were super nice and professional. And Dr. Cardona’s assistant was equally nice and professional. After a quick X-ray, Dr. Cardona did her thing and we were done in no time! Though I’m not a regular patient here, everyone made me felt welcome. Thank you Dr. Cardona and your staff!

Richard K. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Everyone is always very friendly and professional here! Their approach with the current pandemic made me comfortable coming in for an appointment as they always take sanitation and welfare very seriously. The staff are very patient and make you feel very comfortable no matter your reason for visiting! They are also extremely informative and can explain every step, to put you at ease and help you take the best steps to maintain and improve your oral health/care! If you see the hygienist I promise your teeth will feel amazing after! The facility is in a very convenient location and always has parking available.

Gregory P. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


The team at beautiful smiles is great! I had a crown done a (my first) and was nervous about the whole process. My new tooth turned out great and I have no pain whatsoever. Recently I cracked my back molar and Silvia was able to get me in immediately and fixed my tooth that day. I highly recommend Beautiful Smiles. They also offer teeth whitening, which I did, and it turned out great.

Mike M. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a whitening procedure today and it came out awesome, wish I had some before and after photos. Lisa did excellent job, and was very accommodating to my overly sensitive teeth. Andrea is great help at the front desk with billing and care instructions.

Vallorie C. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the most amazing dental office I have ever been too! Dr Nguyen is very detail oriented, explains everything to you and happily answers questions. The staff are very professional, very helpful and friendly. They go the extra mile with a smile. I love this office. You won’t be disappointed!

Jennifer V. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Jennifer Nguyen was very nice, she explained her self very well on what was going on with my teeth. Giovana was really nice and was very easy to understand! Kimberly was fast on taking my X-rays ! Everyone in that office is nice and caring

Abe E. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have a special needs young adult who it has been nearly impossible to provide dental care for. Until, that is, we discovered this wonderful practice. With patience, care, and just the right amount of pharmaceutical help, he has been able to sit in the dentist’s chair and get worked on for the first time in his life (in past everything had to be done in a hospital under general anesthesia). We love this place!!

Gwen H. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Cardona has been my dentist for several years and her work standard is high, her staff professional and friendly, and the office is well situated, modern, and pleasant. I have a smallish mouth and a sometimes jittery personality that Dr. Cardona and her staff always seem to take in stride. Dr. Cardona’s skill and personality makes dental visits as pleasant and anxiety free as possible. Most recently Dr. Cardona succeeded in replacing a front crown I’d lost. She had to match an adjacent porcelain over metal crown with the all porcelain crowns the office makes. The result isn’t perfect, but it is a pretty good match. She has also, in recent years, provided me with dental implants that I have to think twice about before remembering they are implants. And the implants were a pretty unscary procedure when she did them! I can recommend Dr. Cardona and the entire El Segundo Beautiful Smiles team. 🙂

JA. H. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t have dental insurance so I picked El Segundo Beautiful Smiles out of a hat and got super lucky. All of the employees were kind and funny and paid attention to every detail. They were accommodating and took their time. I never felt rushed even though their office had officially closed while I was there – and there were more patients left. I won’t single any one person out because they were literally all awesome. I will definitely go back, I recommend highly.

Jon V. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Myself, much like most people, don’t like going to the dentist at all. I was reluctant to make the appointment because it wasn’t an emergency but I decided to anyway. I went to get a cleaning done because I’ve never had one before and I really needed to get a crown recemented. When I first opened the door, Andrea greeted me right away. She was friendly and smiling the whole time. I filled out the new patient paperwork and then I was helped with my cleaning right away. Kelsey was the hygienist that cleaned my teeth. When it was all done, my teeth have never felt better and she was really nice and gentle with me the whole time. I was worried that it was gonna hurt cuz the machine was loud but she made sure it didn’t. I was scared for nothing. Then Dr. Cardona was the one to do the recementing. What a really sweet lady. She was very knowledgeable and made me feel really at ease about the whole situation. I admittedly need some more dental work done and she was meticulous about every detail and what needs to happen in the future. I ended up feeling very comfortable about my future dental work because of her. Our conversation was very calming. Instead of dreading going in and getting my teeth worked on, this place made me feel good about getting it all done. Lastly, and this might not matter to a lot of people, but the whole office was VERY modern and clean. I’ve been to a few dentists in the past and their offices felt old and musty and outdated. It was an awesome experience overall and I will definitely be recommending this office, and Dr. Cardona, to all my friends

AMAZING! I would highly recommend Sylvia Cardona and her team…They are extremely professional, state-of-the art technology, yet personable (TLC). I feel they are an “extended” family. The atmosphere is very comfortable and welcoming. Sylvia has done an outstanding job in selecting a fantastic team to complete her dental profession. Kudos!!!! I truly have the prettiest, whitest, brightest smile in town! Thank you!

Wow! So glad I found this place… friendly from the first call and throughout my first arrival. Friendly staff, knowledgeable doctor and hygienist. Very organized as well and break down all the costs thoroughly. Keep up the great work! Happy to be a patient of you all!!

Sandi Q. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place!! Always so welcoming and the staff is just amazing! I highly recommend this place, you won’t regret it. The dentist explained everything in so much detail and made me feel great with my decision. Looking forward to bringing my toddler for her check-up. Overall, great experience with such friendly staff! In and out in a breeze!

Teresa W. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


It was my first time visiting El Segundo beautiful smiles yesterday and I immediately felt very comfortable upon walking in. The staff is so kind and inviting. Dr. Csong was so nice and professional during my visit. I felt very calm in knowing I was with a trusted dentist. I am very excited to start a new dental journey here

Kari R. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is THE BEST dentist experience I’ve ever had. The staff is always so friendly, experienced and does an amazing job with the job at hand. I l’ve been coming here for about a year and have recommended this office to multiple coworkers. Now I actually look forward to getting my routine cleanings and have started taking better care of my teeth and gums thanks to their advice and help. I have nothing but positive things to say about this office!

Liliana Trujillo Hernandez (Source: Google)


I was recommended to these amazing people by two of my coworkers, and every single visit I’ve had here has been nothing short of EXCELLENT. From the service and work ethic, to the equipment, to the professional work done – after going through 3 (YES THREE) other dentists, I’ve finally found THE ONE. I’ve been so very well taken care of and the work has been on top of its GAME, continuously. Not to mention the appreciation I have for their HONESTY and overall INTEGRITY. Because they do an excellent job, I always leave El Segundo Beautiful Smiles with a more confident smile every. single. time. Thank you so much for all you do, ESBS Team!!!! – Liliana Trujillo

I have been a patient of Dr.Silvia.Cardona for over 20 years and she has always looked out for the best interest of myself and my family. She will always take the time to give me her best recommendation and advice and it has always given me good results. The staff is efficient and friendly and is very considerate of my needs. I would highly recommend this dental office. Thank You Dr. Cardona!

Mishel L. from San Luis Obispo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Pleasantly surprised! This office was great: ran on time, clean, thorough, informative, and I think the pricing was pretty fair (with my insurance). Dr. Jennifer was gentle and explained what she was doing, step by step, which made me feel more at ease. The other staff members were also very professional and friendly. I was not pressured into any treatments, and they provided me with a print out with what they recommended. Thank you ladies!

Tim S. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Summary: Top notch service all-around, excellent technology, friendly team and convenient parking. Getting set up as a new patient was easy – called the office, they emailed me forms to complete and bring for my cleaning. Parking was convenient w/ secured parking that was validated at the office. Waited only a few minutes before having x-rays taken. Staff was friendly and worked quickly/efficiently. Hygienist (Kelcey?) was thorough and gave me a heads up on her process. Dr. Jennifer went through additional advice / suggestions for me before wrapping up.

John S. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had another outstanding visit today. During the Corona virus I was able to see Dr. Cuong Nguyen with 24 hours of experiencing a tooth ache. He was able to quickly resolve my issue. He is most competent with an abundance of people skills. My go to dentist! Also, the staff goes the extra mile to provide patients with exemplary service!

Dr. Jennifer Nguyen is providing my care. Prior to her (at the El Segundo Beautiful Smiles Clinic), I had been going to the same dentist for at least 25 years. I left my old dentist and clinic because their procedures seemed ineffective and dated regarding my goal of long-term improved and sustained dental health. Dr. Silvia Cardona’s clinic is modern, bright, appealing, and seemingly up-to-date with current equipment and protocols. The options they offer are a welcome change from my old clinic’s procedures and equipment. Dr. Nguyen is a very bright and pleasant dentist who discussed all of my options and answered all of my questions. I’ve had three detailed procedures conducted over the course of a year, and she completed them quickly and mostly painlessly. For my third and most recent intervention, she listened to my concerns then adjusted it from her original recommendation, which was more acceptable and helpful to me. Kelsie V. cleans my teeth and my gums. She is gentle, thorough, painless, and informative. She is also fast. She took less than half-the-time as my original dentist, and without the anesthetics. Their office staff are welcoming and friendly. Andrea S. was very helpful in devising a dental plan that actually caters to my requests, which works very well for me. Along with Lisa R., they are effective in achieving my goals. They are an important part of completing my dental plan and care. Their office name says it all: the El Segundo Beautiful Smiles Clinic. I am very happy with their dental care. Thank you, Dr. Nguyen and staff. Thank you, Dr. Cardona, for an excellent team.

Dr. Cardona an d staff OMG!!! These ladies know how to treat a customer I suffer from anxiety and panic attacks for over 20 years and have neglected to see the dentist because of that doctor Cardona and staff made me feel so at ease and so intentive it made it easy for me not to freak out and run out the door it’s been so long since I’ve been to the dentist due to my fear of going in and having some work done . going to the doctor Cardona place OMG The place is amazing clean nice friendly staff and state of the art equipment they were so accommodating to me dr Cardona is going to start off by doing baby steps so I am more comfortable with going and not so panic stricken So if you’re looking for a dentist and you’re like me panic stricken doctor Cardona is the way to go Thanks ladies

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


I just had work done at Dr. Silvia Cardona’s dental office they treated me great considering I’m a huge baby with a ridiculously small mouth and hate going to the dentist. They definitely made my experience a good one, going to schedule regular cleanings here. Also they’re office has really fancy equipment very new clean and patient friendly.

Leslie R. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of El Segundo Beautiful Smiles since their prior location, a few years back. Elyssa and Liza (front desk) are always very warm and welcoming upon arrival. The office itself is inviting because of its cleanliness. Giovanna, one of the hygienist’s does an excellent and thorough job of cleaning your teeth, and the Drs., Cardona and Neglia are very knowledgeable. They take the time to answer any questions or concerns you might have. I have not had the opportunity to work with some of the other staff, but I’m sure they’re just as effective.

Arnette T. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is undoubtedly the BEST DENTIST’S OFFICE EVER! I don’t know who makes the staffing decisions, but everyone is both personable and professional. Are they trained or born that way? I’ve only been going since late spring, but my smile has undergone a transformation and I look forward to more positive changes in the near future. My history with dentists’ office is not good – but at last I know that I have found a perfect fit for me & my family. Call them with the knowledge that you will not only be treated well, but also will receive excellent dental care.

Judith D. from Palm Desert, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Cardona and her staff are the best. I found Dr Cardona as I was working in El Segundo 3 years ago. Now I drive in from Palm Desert. Her staff is very professional and Dr Cardona is doing an amazing job on perfecting my smile with veneers and implants. While dental work is pricey, I feel she recommends the best procedures to make me look the very best and does not try to oversell me. I have always had a great fear of the dentist; but with her state of the art equipment – I won’t say it is a breeze, but it is much better. Do your self a favor and make an appointment with Dr Cardona…trust me – you will look like a million!
