Dori C. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


My entire family has been coming to Dr. K for years.  He takes the time to explain everything and was even great helping my kids feel more at ease.  His staff is always very friendly and anytime I have called asking for a document, they are quick to email me the same day. My daughter got her braces through their orthodontist and we’ve been so happy with him as well during the process.  I recommend Elite Smiles to anyone looking for a local, attentive dentist and staff!

This is the best dentistry in Valencia hands down. I am pretty sure the person that wrote that this is the worst place they have been to needs to be medicated..I have had zero issues, everyone I know goes here and has had nothing but great experiences.

John K. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to Elite Smiles….First impressions: Clean, extremely professional offices……The first person I met was Dr. Koutsoukos, he was smiling and very warm in greeting me. The paperwork was necessary but not confusing. Every single person I came in contact with throughout the visit was kind and friendly. I simply can’t say enough GOOD about my visit (and I am not a fan of dentist visits). I was never made to feel guilty, they were simply there to help me and my situation. Dr. Koutsoukos was great….he listened to me and explained all of my options as well as giving me his honest suggestions going forward. It was a very very personable and informative visit. I like this Dr. and I trust him. Then came Jessica to explain all the insurance nuances involved. Once again I cannot stress enough how personable and caring these folks were through the whole visit. I wish I knew the name of the young lady who did the x-ray’s because she did I great job as well. (My apologies on that one) Cutting to the chase, this is a professional group…and I am not one who gives out praises willy-nilly. I cannot see how anyone wouldn’t find the atmosphere professional and the caring obvious…. I am looking forward to my further visits (never said that before) J.Kenney

Snow Orthodontics is the best. They always make me feel so special. They take the personal time with each and every patient and even if they are running behind on calling me back I know that I am going to receive the best care possible. They keep me informed on my progress and the girls make me laugh all the time. I actually look forward to going to my appointments. My treatment is almost finished and I couldn’t be happier with the results. Now I have the smile I always dreamed of. Thank You!!!

Tammy K. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. K and his staff are really nice and treat you like a friend not a patient. They listen to your concerns and look at your best interest. The office is clean and relaxing; you don’t feel like you’re entering a “dentist office”.

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


Dr K is one of the most positive people I’ve ever met!!! Oh yeah – he’s a great Doctor too! He was a customer of mine, then I became a patient and I’m REALLY happy to have met he and his staff! From the minute I walked in (even on the phone before) I felt relaxed and comfortable. I had an issue – solved. 1st class treatment from start to end! I’m telling everyone I know to come here! Thanks Elite people at Elite Smiles – they all have Elite Smiles!

Kristin H. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t write reviews but Elite Smiles’ fantastic customer service inspired me to get on the computer and write.  We have been going for a year now.  Family of seven…kids from 3 to 17.  Two have braces.  Dr K, staff, front counter folks, Jessica are fantastic.  We are a picky family and to please all seven of us is a big deal.  Front counter is responsive, likable, honest, and are in engaged… Rare now a days.  We have other friends that go here to and like it too.  Finding a good dentist with a staff that wants to help make things easier for you is hard to find.  When you come in you are greeted, given eye contact and are either helped right away or they let you know they are working on getting to you.  I would recommend them 100%.

Willie N. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Elite Smiles has given me a wonderful new smile.  I have veneers now and boy do they look great.  It’s the best thing that I have every done.  Dr. Koutsoukos is the absolute best at what he does.  Smart, funny and an outstanding dentist.  I would recomment him to anyone and everyone.

Yana Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really like my visit to Dr K. at Elite Smiles. Instead of the expensive crown he gave me a great looking filling at an afordable price compared to other offices. The work he has done is of a really high quality and he is an excellent dentist. A dentist like this is so hard to find, and I highly recommend Dr K.

Eleni M. from La Cañada Flintridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for a while and it has been great. The receptionist is very friendly and efficient and since we are family friends with the head dentist, it makes it feel so much more fun and makes for a better experience. Also, they clean things very well and they have individual rooms for each patient which makes it so much better. Also, they have very convenient and plentiful parking in the lot out front. The procedures are timely and efficient and are done with expertise and care. Everyone knows what they’re doing and it makes for a smoother time. I would highly recommend coming here.

Bonnie R. from Valencia, Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love to come here. Unlike other dental plan offices. Dr. K is a true professional. Family atmosphere and long term staff. No oversell… Just great honest dentistry.

Taralynn B. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m deathly afraid of the dentist and after not going to one after quite some time, I bit the bullet and went. I was recommended here and I couldn’t be happier. They’ve made me feel comfortable since day 1 and for a while there, I was there every couple weeks just fixing previous work. The staff is nice and the docs are super super great and compassionate and gentle. I still hate the dentist, but not nearly as much because of these guys.

The J. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


All staff were extremely professional and very friendly Great Front Desk Dr. K. was wonderful – explained things completely – so thorough that seeing him for a second opinion saved us hundreds of dollars

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


I cannot say enough about how wonderful Dr. K and his staff are. I am sad to say that I have moved out of state and wish I would have brought Elite Smiles with me. Not only is everyone at this dental/ortho practice friendly but they also know what they are doing. Dr. K fixed a deep filling in one of my molars and did an excellent job with the filling and set me at ease when administering the novocaine. I am pretty fearful of dental work, so I was surprised he could calm me down as well as he did. The office is super organized, clean and the equipment is state of the art. They have a designated billing/insurance specialist which makes everything so much less confusing for the patients. I highly recommend setting up an appointment if you need a dentist/ortho.

Jacob N. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. K is amazing!! Super gentle. I hadn’t been to a dentist in a very long time because I was scared. Dr. K made me feel comfortable no pain they work with you. Just an all around great dentist!! Never going anywhere else!!! My dentist for life!!! If I can give 15 stars I would!! Thanks Dr. K and all your staff!!!

Christy S. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband Robert and I have been going to Dr. K for about 5 years. We love him, his office and his staff. Last week my husband had a sore tooth so I called Jessica and she fit him in the next morning. Turns out he had a broken crown. This was stressful as we were leaving in 3 days on a 5 week vacation. Dr. K put in a temporary cap and called to see if the crown could be rushed. Amazing! The crown was in on Friday as promised and Dr. K cut his lunch short to fit my hubby in. In the end.. We are on vacation and my husband has no pain. This office goes above and beyond the normal business practice. Dr. K really cares! BTW, he also has a great sense of humor! We really enjoy his staff and his office is immaculate.

Jaci W. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a true fear of the dentist disease. I have a hyper active gag reflex like no other and it makes a dentist visit very challenging. I was absolutely terrified to go to the dentist so I didn’t…for like 10 years. Finally I emailed Dr. K’s office and just explained the situation. They said not to worry they would just see what I’m capable of. They were amazing. The guy who tried so hard to get my X-rays was so patient and nice and Dr. K was awesome. He didn’t scold me or treat me like a child. He was patient and would stop whenever I needed him too. He does sedation dentistry so that’s my plan for the work I need done.   It was so much easier than I thought it was going to be. I would definitely recommend him for anyone who has a fear of the dentist!

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


You know you’re in the right place when the front desk is genuinely nice and you can feel the camaraderie amongst the staff. Kindness is contagious. Expert, above and beyond helpful and cheery is how I would describe Dr. K (as his staff calls him!). I cracked my ancient crown yesterday and frantic about how I would chew on my upcoming vacation a week away. Dr. K moved heaven and earth to help me do just that: skipping lunch, requesting a rush on my new crown from the crown makers, squeezing me in for my follow up again on his (and his assistant) lunch hour because no other appointments were available.  You’re a treasure!!  Thank you SO MUCH!!

Karen Mcnulty (Source: Google)


Dr. Koutsoukos made me feel for the first time NO FEAR when I had to walk in to a dental office and sit down in his chair. Dentistry is painless and now I have no anxiety! Best thing that could have happened to me!

Tammy H. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. K is AMAZING!!  I am petrified to go to the dentist.  Which is why I have delayed going for so long.  I need A LOT of work done.  He was kind and calm with me even though I was shaking in his chair.  He went over what needed to be done and didn’t try to “force” me into getting tons of work done before fixing the immediate issues.  This has never been done before.  I was very pleased, to say the least.  When it came time to meet with the Office Manager for my treatment plan…well let’s just say I was pleasantly surprised.  The fees along with my insurance were incredibly reasonable.  This was the first time I left a dental office not feeling defeated.  Thank you so much to Dr. K and his amazing staff for making this very scared grown woman feel comfortable and confident in going to the dentist again.  I will be going back to achieve the amazing smile I deserve. I highly recommend Dr. K and Elite Smiles

Smiley S. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been going to Dr K for over a year now for various different things that i wanted to get done. What started out as a cracked tooth turned into a complete overhaul because Dr K walked me thru what was happening with my teeth, and physically showed me with xrays & photos, and we talked about my options and what my end goal was. I have hated going to the dentist my whole life, but from the minute i walked thru the door and met Jessica & Michelle, to Dr K and all his wonderful staff members, i was at ease and talked to as an adult and not just some patient. Top Notch! Thank you!

Alicia L. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the moment I walked in, I was greeted by friendly people. Dr. Koutsoukos was great and when I mentioned how nervous I was of the dentist from previous experiences, he put my mind at ease by explaining everything he was doing and making sure I was “in control” and letting him know if anything bothered me. After my consultation, I immediately made my next appointment because I’m sure I’ve found my new dentist. The facilities are large and welcoming. Dr. K even took photos of my teeth so we could review them and talk in detail about how to proceed with each tooth! I was very pleased and I’m happy to find a dentist I’m confident will help fix my teeth and keep them healthy in the future.

Alyssa J. from Rosamond, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a very nice and professional office.  I like where it is located.  When I walk in they are very welcoming, I always get a smile from everyone in there.  They are very fast and the doctors are really nice.  I love how my smile is turning out, I am not afraid of smiling anymore.

Ted K. from Muncie, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr Koutsoukos is the best! I had a very positive experience dealing with him. His professional demeanor was reassuring and his friendly disposition put me at ease. Going to the dentist can be stressful for some but I had no reservations letting him near my teeth. I received a cleaning and he also renewed the seal on some of my molars. It became evident to me he knew his stuff because he only resealed the teeth that needed it. I really loved how he showed me detailed pictures of my teeth and explained to me what was going on inside my mouth. This was something none of my previous dentists had done to that point. The cleaning that followed was about as enjoyable as you can get considering someone is cleaning your mouth with power tools :p I’ve since moved down to LA proper since my last visit but I will be making a special visit to Valencia for my semi annual appointment.

H M. from Stevenson Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I reached out to Elite Smiles hoping that Dr. Koutsoukos could”fix” my crown. I was impressed by Dr.K’s ability to assess the damage and provide a solution. He successfully replaced my crown and since then he has performed other dental procedures, all without incident. Why Elite Smiles? As a dentist, Dr. K has the ability to assess problem areas (with the aid of digital x-rays) with clarity. He presents the evidence to his client and communicates his findings without hesitation. His thorough nature in investigating, problem-solving and performing procedures makes him an exceptional dentist. He is direct when he speaks, but never unkind. When performing a procedure he is focused, gentle and patient. As a person, Dr. K is a perfectionist. He takes pride in his work as was evident when completing my various procedures. If he is not satisfied, he WILL spend the time and redo at NO extra charge to his client. This level of integrity is rare. At the same time he does not try to upsell which is very commendable. Also, the fact that he doesn’t speak ‘ill’ of other dentists or their work is a testament of his good nature. Yes, he is a business owner and has many people to please which can be daunting, but he is a dentist first and in my opinion a ‘highly skilled one’. As a professional, Dr. K’s credentials are impressive. He has advanced degrees which include DDS, CAGS, FAGS and MSc. His specialty is in Prosthodontics and Dental Implants. He has also taught at the University level and is the owner of his practice. His team consists of specialists who are accomplished experts in their field. I personally have used Dr. Naim’s and Dr. Shannon’s services and have not been disappointed. Dr. K recruits the best. Elite Smiles is the place to go for all your dental needs. Dr.K and his staff (hygienists, assistants and front desk administration ) are all professional and welcoming. Jessica and Michelle have a great attitude and follow up whether you have a question about billing or whether you have just had a procedure done. Dr. K delivers results. His extensive training, work ethic and honesty are all criteria I believe that make a good dentist. Thank you Dr. Koutsoukos for being my dentist!

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


I drive from The Valley to Valencia and it’s definitely worth the drive. I enjoy coming here and the staff is super professional and friendly. The doc is super cool. Thank you Elite for all you’ve done for me through out the years.

Elizabeth D. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great staff, great doctors!!!! Everyone is very professional and friendly. So far the best dentists office I have been. I definately recommend them. Nelly was very friendly and polite, she made the process of switching dentist very smooth.Dr. K is very patient, polite and careful when doing the check up.

Manu A. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


This story is going to be about things falling into place. But first, a little background. It’s my second time visiting this place. The first time was for me and today (5/3/18) was for my mother which was almost an emergent situation. 5 stars for both experiences. After suffering for two weeks in pain due to oral infection, and definite dental decay, my mother (who absolutely is against going to the dentist finally agreed a couple days ago to go see a doctor. Now her HMO insurance had her with a certain dental clinic. I have been calling this office for a day and after no response, (Despite leaving voicemails and describing the need for urgency), I got fed up and called the insurance company, Delta Dental. (Shout out to Delta for also facilitating the process) They described that I can switch over to a new office and doctor now (instead of the first of the next month), as long as the office is okay with it. Luckily, Elite Smiles accepts my mom’s insurance. Series of events followed and now I am compelled to write this review. I called elite smiles and was greeted by an enthusiastic voice, named, Michelle. (I must say ‘enthusiastic’ because this is towards the end of their day and she sounded like it was 9 AM) Michelle listened to my request and immediately understood the tone of urgency in my voice. I had mom in my sight just feeling not so great, suffering in severe pain, lethargic and drained of energy and, therefore, it was important for me to find her an appointment quickly. It was 4:50 PM at this point. Luckily, they were okay with transferring her to their office and accept her as a patient. The perceptive Michelle also understood that she needed to be seen immediately and therefore got her in the same day. She says “I can have your mom in at 5:30 PM (50 minutes after the phone call). I am very impressed by their commitment to help and the wit to understand emergent situations. I was hoping for the quickest appointment possible but never thought, same day would be possible. We get there and mom goes in within ten minutes. We finally got to meet Michelle and her co-worker Nellie. They both showed compassion for her situation and were very sympathetic towards her situation and HELPFUL af. They do a complete check-up and tell her whats up. My mother is a very anxious person around physicians and dentists (just like the half the human race). I make this point because Dr. George Koutsoukos is compassionate, realistic and definitely puts in the effort to provide the best therapeutic options for the short as well as the long term. I could tell that my mom felt comfortable in this physician’s presence because she didn’t feel rushed. Also, Aaron was great and very helpful. TLDR: I just want to wrap up and say that this was a great experience for my mother. Nobody likes going to the dentist but its staff like this which makes the environment more welcoming for scared and anxious patient. Medical professionals have a tough job being objective and compassionate about everything and providing the best care for people in need. This office exemplifies these qualities.

Dr. Koutsoukos is the best dentist that I have ever found. I had tooth problems in Orange County and went to a local dentist for implant. There have been so mane issues so I decided to drive to Dr Koutsoukos when my friend recommended him to me. He did one crown on a broken tooth and another bridge crown on my implant. The surgery went so well that I did not even feel much uncomfortable at all. His staff are so very nice and professional. I highly recommend him to anyone looking for a precision treatment. I can’t thank him enough for ending my two years ordeal! Helen

Debbie B. from Tracy, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. K and his staff are excellent! Dr. K has good bedside manners and mindful of any discomfort you might be having with dental procedures. He does his best to make dental visits pleasant. Jessica and other front desk staff are courteous and I have never had an issue. I would highly recommend coming to Dr. K!

Stella M. from North Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Still pleasantly happy with the office. Clean and professional. The Dr. Is awesome and staff still great. I couldn’t help but read some of the negative reviews, wow some of you have a lot of time on your hands and nice pic of someone giving the finger. Is this is a joke? Couldn’t help but lol and comment.

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


I came here for a second opinion and glad I did. I was in need of a prosthodontist and there are only a few in Santa Clarita. Dr.K and his staff are professional and made me feel welcome. Dr.K answered all my questions and took his time explaining my treatment. Very happy and feel lucky i found this gem. Will recommend him to all my friends and family.

Nathan C. from Sahuarita, AZ (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dental office I have ever used in my life. Everyone I know goes here and nobody has anything close to a negative experience. The staff is fantastic with my 4yr old that has autism. I feel bad for people like Shannon who’s review I read which was ridiculously negative. You pay for services before they are performed unless you are paying with credit. Using your battle with cancer as an excuse is uncalled for..be mad at the world all you want for the hand you were delt in life  but you are wrong for blasting this office the way you did. Anyway, long story short, great staff from top to bottom. The office is always spic n span and zero issues with any pricing or dental treatment.   I would give Dr. K and his staff 10 stars if I could.
