Best filling ever! Did I just write that? Yesterday I had a filling done by Dr. Yassa and her amazing assistant Jasmin. It was fairly painless — only felt the uncomfortable pinch of the anesthetic injection (which wasn’t that bad). That was the worst part. The rest was easy and painless! I had a cavity wayyy back in my mouth. It’s that hard to get to lower right molar. It was urgent to get it done way before quarantine and I stalled on getting it done for months. Then due to COVID-19, I waited it out even longer. Well, Dr. Yassa made me feel comfortable coming in to get my filling even though we are all still concerned about the spread of coronavirus. Dr. Yassa is hyper sanitary and takes extreme precautions to make sure each patient and all surfaces are clear of potential infection. Even the pen to sign the agreement is sanitized in front of you. Gloves, masks, hand washing, sanitizer, it’s all super clean. Do not worry about going to the dentist during COVID-19 here! You are in good hands. I had first started coming to Encino Family Dental with my youngest daughter for her checkups and cleanings, and now I’m glad to say that I’m also a patient! Excellent care and great professional work by a very kind and caring dentist.

Our family dentist recently retired and I put off finding a new dentist for months because I thought it would be impossible to find a dentist who was as kind, patient and competent as our previous dentist, but then I found Dr. Yassa. She is very personable but also professional. Our whole family now sees her regularly. My husband, our four kids and I have all been very satisfied with our experiences. Dr. Yassa takes time throughout the exam to explain what she sees as well as provide treatment options based on her experience. Highly recommend!

You can not find a more competent,gentle caring dentist than Dr Yassa! Put me at ease and confident, that I was in the best hands possible!! Her assistant makes you feel like family! And does everything to assist in all your needs as well! I’ll only see Dr Yassa from now on!

Eliza S. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


What a great dental experience! I went in for a general checkup. She does the cleaning herself — not like other places where a tech/assistant does the cleaning and then the dentist comes and checks it. She is thorough with gums and plaque. Just wonderful.

Danielle J. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


If I had the option to select a thousand stars I would.  Dr. Yassa is a stellar and Phenomenal dentist.  Her assistant is wonderful and caring as is the front office staff.  My teeth feel amazing and it was the best cleaning that I have ever had and I will return in a few weeks for a few fillings. The office is well appointed and spotless.  I highly recommend Dr. Yassa if you are looking for 5 star service and a fantastic bedside manner 🙂

Laurie T. from Valley Glen, CA (Source: Yelp)


We have been patients of Dr Yassa since she opened her practice. My two children actually like seeing Dr. Yassa and getting their teeth cleaned. Her office is very calm and serene and her support staff is lovely.  She is the upmost professional and even makes after office phone calls to check in after dental work. We are so pleased that she’s our Dentist. If you’re looking for a new dentist, please call her now!

Joshua N. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t tell you enough how forever grateful I am to Dr. Yassa. For the last year, I had been experiencing severe tooth pain following a deep filling. After going for a couple of second opinions, I found Dr. Yassa on YELP and the rest is history. As a fellow Physician, I can understand the importance of a bedside manner and making the patient feel comfortable. Dr. Yassa gets an A+ for this. After doing x rays and seeing how much pain I was in, she gave me the option of starting my root canal just to relieve the pain. Once she did that, my pain got remarkably better and today she completed the root canal. She is so meticulous and gentle and takes away your fears of dentistry right out of you. Plus she has Netflix playing on tv’s on the ceiling so it keeps you distracted throughout the procedure. Her prices are incredibly fair and are lower than most. I plan on going back for my crown and will be sending my wife and daughter to Dr. Yassa. Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

Marina C. from Encino, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Yassa and The Staff at Encino Family Dental is probably the best dentist and office I’ve ever been to. I was so nervous of the dentist prior to becoming a patient. but when I came in for the first time I was greeted with warmth and love and I felt like I was part of the family already.  And the fact that i can watch The walking dead while i get my teeth fixed is a great plus.  Great Dentist, Great Staff, Clean office, and works with your schedule as much as possible.  I have been there x10 in the last 3 years and i have never had to wait for my appointment to start.

Scott S. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who knew you could become buddies with your dentist of all people?! I was referred to Dr. Yassa by a good friend who happens to be an orthodontist… and wow, at my first cleaning we hit it off while watching “Stranger Things 2” on Netflix on the TV on her ceiling above the dentist chair! that’s right Dr. Yassa has Netflix on the ceiling… can’t beat that can you? I didn’t think so. Needless to say, Ive been afraid of the dentist my entire adult life, but now, its like swinging by to see family. Make an appointment, you won’t be disappointed!

Lissette H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a very cautious/nervous person when it comes to dentist. When I first met Dr. Yassa I felt comfortable and confident in her skills. Her office is clean and inviting. They go the extra mile by placing TV’s in each room for you to watch while getting work done. Their prices are great and they have always been honest if we have a credit to our account. I normally park across the street in the Office Depot parking lot so that I don’t have to pay for the buildings parking. My kids were the first to have work done with her and she has always been available when we needed her. Even during an emergency visit where my son had broken his front tooth. She came in after hours with her daughter and took care of him. I am so grateful for her kind nature. I then started using her as my dentist. I needed a lot of work done and she took care of all my needs and always called the day after a procedure to see how I was doing. I am so glad I found a caring dentist who really works with your needs.

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


Encino Family Dental is such a great place for the whole family to receive dental care.  I was looking for an honest, straight forward and kid friendly dental office that I could go as well as my children and was able to find it with Dr. Yassa.  I have been more than happy with the office’s friendly and professional services.  I highly recommend Dr. Yassa for any dental needs wether it be for you and/or you family.

Craig W. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had plenty of Dentist’s over the years but none are as good as this one. I found it through a friend and hands down it’s the best. The staff is great and very welcoming. I love the TV screens above your head  as it keeps your mind on something other then the work being done. Also all the equipment is state of the art.

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


I am usually not a fan of the dentist at all! I was looking for a place close to work and I happened to come across Encino Family Dental. I first went in for the usual cleaning and x-rays, then spoke about treatments, etc. Came back two weeks later for some fillings and was in and out of the office in an hour and a half! The receptionist, Jasmine, is really nice and thorough. Dr. Yassa is just as amazing! After getting some dental work done, you would not expect to get a call from the doctor the next day and I was surprised to get a check-up call on how I was feeling. The office is clean and you can enjoy some Netflix while getting your teeth worked on. I highly recommend!

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


I was referred to Dr. Yassa by a friend. Her office made my appointment right away and was very accommodating with my schedule. I needed my wisdom teeth pulled and Dr. Yassa made the whole experience very pleasant. She made sure I was always comfortable and did her best to get me in and out very quickly and efficiently. No one likes going to the dentist, but when I have to go back I’m glad to know that I will be well taken care of.

Ramy E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr Yassa by a friend who highly recommended her. I wasn’t sure if it made sense to drive from West LA to Encino to see the dentist, but was I glad I did!  Dr Yassa was very thorough, had very gentle hands, and answered all my questions. Her office was really clean and her staff was super friendly!  I was thoroughly impressed by everything I saw, and would comfortably recommend her to everyone I know. Dr Yassa’s demeanor was so engaging, that after seeing Dr Yassa in action, my 6 year old son actually asked if he could have his teeth examined. Even without an appointment Dr Yassa made the time to examine and clean his teeth!!  All in all… A TOP NOTCH dentist, in a 5 star practice!!

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


Amazing, friendly, CLEAN, professional dentist. I have not been to a dentist in a while and i came in for a cleaning and xrays. Dr Yassa was so kind and 100% genuine. Did not at all try to upsell me anything I didn’t need. The cleaning was done quickly and thoroughly. Staff is so friendly and make me feel welcomed.Iv been recommending this dentist to my friends and family because its the nicest dentist iv been to. Thank you Dr.

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


Dr Yassa is amazing! I was referred to her by my husband. Ever since moving to California, it seemed that the dentists here were all about the up sale and not about what I needed or wanted. That is not the case with Dr. Yassa. She evaluates your teeth, listens to what you want and comes up with a plan that works you. You can tell that Dr. Yassa really loves what she does. You never feel rushed. She takes the time to answer all you question and during treatments she is always touching base with you to make sure that you are not feeling any discomfort. She even calls you a day or two after treatment to make sure that everything is okay!

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


I’ve been taking my daughter to boulevard pediatrics (same building) since she was born and they had fliers promoting Encino Family Dental for children and adult services. I was extremely unhappy with my previous dentist due to his lack of personality and friendliness and was on the hunt for someone new, so I called and set up my appt. I was greeted immediately by Jasmin and had the privilege of talking to her before my visit with Dr. Yassa. The office is gorgeous and very welcoming and the tv on the ceiling is another plus in my book. Dr. Yassa is very professional, but personable as well and I really appreciate her taking the time to ask me questions in order to get to know me. Between her and Jasmin I have found my new Dental home. During my procedures she made sure I was comfortable and numb and continued to ask me if I was ok (I had quite a lot done at one time). Also, I need a new mouth guard since I grind my teeth. I was given the price of a new one, so I can budget for it for the next visit. I didn’t feel pressured or manipulated into getting it right then!!!

I have been with Dr. Yassa for years now. She is gentle and very caring. My son is also a patient, he didn’t have good experiences with other dentists, but she definitely was an exception! I couldn’t be happier with Dr. Yassa, thank you for this fantastic experience…:)

Mason M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Dr. Yassa to anyone! I live in San Francisco but I had an emergency situation with a chipped tooth. Dr. Yassa got me an appointment quickly and made my tooth look as good as new. She really emphasizes a familial atmosphere at her office while also being very thorough. Also, her office is very prepared for the COVID environment and felt that everything was sanitized appropriately. If you’re looking for a new dentist in the SFV area, I would look no further than Dr. Marian Yassa!

Kevin C. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


GREAT DENTIST!! My oral hygiene and smile has improved immensely with Dr. Yassa’s guidance. A few years ago, I had Dr. Yassa professionally whitened my teeth (i would never use the whitening trays at home). Years later, my teeth are still pearly white due to this treatment and regular cleaning. A great dentist with a great staff that keeps my mouth healthy. A+ recommendation.

Rob S. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Yassa for over 4 years with excellent results! By far the best dental treatment I have ever experienced. I’ve never had a crown fit so perfectly! Dr. Yassa’s demeanor is very pleasant and caring and the staff is very professional. I’ve never had to wait for my appointments and insurance matters are handled efficiently.  Being treated by Dr. Yassa is always a very positive experience.  I definitely recommend Encino Family Dental for all dental needs!

Tracy Wiessbrod (Source: Google)


I highly recommend Dr. Yassa for everyone in your family. My children and I all see her regularly for teeth cleanings, check ups, and any work that needs to be done. My youngest daughter started to see Dr. Yassa when she was 18 months old, and now my kids are 6 and 9 years old. Dr. Yassa and everyone on her staff is honest, kind, and reliable. They somehow make an experience that has potential to be daunting or painful into a pleasant experience every time!

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


Dr. Yassa and  Annabel are two of the kindest productive young ladies on Ventura Blvd.  I use to drive to the Westside but for two years now they have been taking such good care of my family and I. There are no issues with parking, billing and the office is always nice and clean.  My little ones never dred going in for their visits.  Your Staff Rocks, thank you for all you do!

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


Dr. Yassa is a genius! She is warm, kind, knowledgeable, makes you feel so comfortable and she really listens to what each of her patients need. She goes above and beyond for her clients! I can attest to that myself! I have had many experiences with her as my dentist and each time she made me feel so cared for and went above and beyond the call of dental duty! She truly is THE BEST DENTIST in LA! Probably the world! Not to mention her staff as well, always so welcoming and kind, with great communication skills to boot! Lisa is the one i’ve seen the most and she’s so sweet! They have a TV in the waiting room, they use the best equipment, and are so nice and clean! Seriously…need I say more? If you are looking for a dentist that you will actually look forward to going to and one that never lets you down…look no further! She’s here and her name is Dr. Yassa! Thank you Encino Family Dental, you’re the best!

Annie R. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a person who suffers from dentist phobia, I was so pleased to find Dr. Yassa when I recently had tooth pain and had no choice but to be seen.  Dr. Yassa and her staff are incredibly friendly, gentle, and competent!  Dr. Yassa herself did my cleaning and thoroughly explained the findings from her assessment.  She also called me personally the day after a procedure to ensure that all was well.  I’ve never had this kind of experience with a dentist, and I’m so happy to write a sparkling review for Encino Family Dental!  (She’ll leave you with absolutely beautiful, sparkling teeth 😉 )

Anwar T. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I travel all the way from Pasadena to see Dr. Yassa.  She is an Amazing dentist with a light touch who shows care and compassion with a smile!  The office is bright and modern and her staff is super helpful and supportive.  If you are looking for that special dentist look no further.  Professionalism and personality abounds!

Tara B. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seriously been all over the valley, to some awful butcher dentists over the years. Thank goodness for Dr. Yassa! I’d been avoiding going for over 2 years, my anxiety was through the roof! Dr. Yassa treated me so very kind and was so very personable. I will be going back and I will be referring my friends. Thank you Dr. Yassa and Encino Family Dental

Kevin W. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Many have Yelped about how wonderful, professional and engaging Dr. Yassa is; they are absolutely correct! My review perspective centers on her technical skills and standard of treatment. I arrived on her doorstep by referral and necessity, having broken an incisor (fang) off at the gum line. While I was horrified and embarrassed by the actual event and my new gap-toothed grin, she took everything in stride and devised a short term fix with a combination Invisalign/prosthetic program designed to realign my existing teeth and create adequate space for a permanent implant. Along the way, she evaluated other dentistry opportunities made possible by my lifetime of avoiding dentists. Here we are nearly three years down the road and she has had the opportunity to practice her skills in extraction, root canals, updating old fillings, replacing old crowns, placing new fillings and general maintenance tasks such as the initial deep cleaning, ongoing maintenance cleaning and on and on and on. Dr. Yassa’s treatment plan that we devised and agreed upon early on in the process has come to fruition, with the permanent implant now in place and indiscernible from my natural teeth in shape and coloration. Regardless of the challenges in my case, whether structural or cosmetic, Dr. Yassa has, over time, proven to be more than a match, exhibiting the highest degree of expertise, professionalism and empathy. We still have a few projects left; once they are completed and we move into the maintenance portion of our program (can’t wait!) I will remain a customer/fan for life.

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


I have lived in California for 20 years always switching dentists. Not than any of them were bad. They just weren’t outstanding and to be remembered. I had probably the best time I’ve ever had at this dentist. I was gripping and expecting at least a prick of a needle and i think i psyched myself up because nothing happened. It was awesome and i watched Netflix the whole time during my deep cleaning. If you don’t go here, you’ll regret it. Oh this place does need a simple name change to not be confused with another dentist practice. I vote E.F.D. Sounds hip. Easy to remember. Or E.F Dental.

Talea N. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yassa is a Highly Professional Dentist.  She is very punctual, efficient, and thorough with her dental evaluations.  As dental work can be very expensive, Dr. Yassa comprises an affordable dental plan free from pressure tactics….She is Honest!  She cares about her patients and the quality of her work. I was blessed to find Dr. Yassa after my gum lengthening surgery.  Although it was the end of the year, she did not hesitate to add me to her schedule.  She was willing to remove my stitches and complete my treatment.  My previous dentist had opposing qualities so I cannot express what a relief it was to find Dr. Yassa!!! The office staff is very friendly making sure you are comfortable at all times …. and for people who are nervous they offer movies via Netflix :).

Ramez E. from San Clemente, CA (Source: Yelp)


It is difficult to find a dentist and dental office focused on patient care and the patient experience.  Dr. Yassa, her staff and her office are exceptional.  We took our 3 year old daughter to her for her first dental exam and cleaning.  Dr. Yassa was patient, engaging and accommodating – she took the time needed for my daughter to feel comfortable.  Not only was the cleaning painless, my daughter left the office excited to brush and floss.  In fact, she regularly reminds me how Dr. Yassa taught her to brush and floss, and won’t skip a night. We plan to bring the entire family to this wonderful practice. I have strongly recommended her to family and friends.  Aside from the above, the office is absolutely flawless, with the newest technology.

Amy B. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Yassa and her staff make going to the dentist a pleasant experience, every time. She is so kind, patient, gentle and most importantly caring. She will never push any unnecessary treatment on you and really takes time to hear your concerns. The office is extremely clean and well taken care of. TVs in each room, along with a smoothing playlist really creates a calming environment for your nerves and makes you forget for a second that you’re at the dentist! Although I don’t live too close to the office, I wouldn’t trust anybody else with my dental needs like I trust Dr. Yassa. Thank you for everything!

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


I recently had a deep cleaning done with Dr. Yassa. She is the absolute best. I was very nervous and she completely understood and was patient with me. She also gave me a mini water bottle. She was very gentle and careful with me and still did the job perfect! I feel so much better. I wasn’t even sore or in pain afterwards. I’ll definitely keep coming back here for my future cleanings. Thank you Dr.Yassa!!!
