I was referred to this office by one of my coworkers who said they are the go to office for cosmetic dentistry.  I am so glad they recommended them.  The office is clean and the staff was very nice and welcoming. I saw Dr. Matt Friedman to fix one of my front teeth that had ended up chipping pretty badly.  He was able to repair it that same day and it looks as if nothing ever happened.  I was even given a freshly baked cookie upon leaving. I think this office sets the bar for great dental care.

Look no further than Friedman Dentistry for the highest level of care, operated by two skilled dentists, Dr. Matt , son and father.  I have seen definite proof that these guys are the absolute best in their field.  Dr. Matt has treated me with superior dental care, using a beautifully executed combination of his knowledge and creativity.  The outcome of the situation that landed me there has exceeded my expectations.  I really felt cared for.  Every personal concern of mine was treated with understanding and dedication. This high level care radiates throughout the whole atmosphere.  The technology and equipment is state of the art, the finest medical equipment available with impeccable cleanliness.  The setting is completely comfortable, with calming classical and jazz music playing quietly, and any additional entertainment one could hope for is readily available, each chair complemented with Netflix and music availability.  The entire staff is friendly and knowledgeable, making each visit pleasant.  Dentists can be scary to trust, but I would tell anyone without hesitation, no matter the complexity or difficulty of the situation, to put their trust into these guys.  Dr. Matt has earned my absolute recommendation and thanks.

The Friedmans and staff are some of the nicest people I’ve met and extremely professional. You can tell they are detail oriented by just looking at their practice. The dental office is cutting edge, immaculate beyond anything I’ve seen, and very well designed. You almost feel like you’ve stepped onto the set of a cool science fiction movie. They’ve got iPads hanging over you as your being worked on. If Apple designed a dental office, it would look like this. Such a gem of a practice.

I cannot say enough good things about  Matt Friedman, and the staff at Friedman Dentistry.  They are truly a cut above all the rest.  I actually look forward to my visits.  I have been a patient for close to 15 years and have never once been unhappy with the professionalism or the care.  That in and of itself is pretty remarkable!   Recently, Dr. Matt straightened my teeth with Invisalign.  It was painless and easy.  Most importantly, he was able to save and straighten a tooth that several others I spoke to would have pulled.  I feel more like an extended member of the family…than a patient.  I highly, highly recommend them!

I have been going to Friedman Dentistry for 11 years; I love them and would not go anywhere else! The facilities are impeccable, the staff is wonderful and pleasant, the doctors are amazing and extremely diligent. Plus, you can even watch Netflix while getting your teeth cleaned. Overall it is always a great experience and I am beyond thrilled with the work.

I am nearing the four year mark of treatment with Friedman Dentistry and my movie star smile is almost done. I couldn’t be happier.Dr. Matt has really put a lot of effort and creativity in to recovering my mouth from an unhealthy mess. I have one last tooth implant and a crown.Having such a difficult case Dr. Matt had to really think outside the box and his innovation and expertise really came through for me. I couldn’t help but notice a nasty and scathing review about him and I can’t believe those words to be true. As someone who has been in treatment for almost four years all of my experiences have been the exact opposite. Dr. Matt helped make my wedding picture smiles the kind you can brag about.

Lael B. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Matt provides excellent dentistry and has an artistic talent that takes dentistry to the next level. I would highly recommend Dr. Matt and Dr. Mark to anyone who wants to witness the merging of technology and artistry in a dental setting.

David S. from Agoura Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred here by a friend for an issue I was having with my sleeping device to help with mild apnea. First of all, you feel like you’ve walked onto the bridge of the Enterprise…Star Trek style! It’s an amazing office…just a wonder to behold!  Then the staff are fantastic. So sweet and helpful. Samantha was in charge of me and she couldn’t have been nicer and so charming.  Dr Matt, the son of this Father/Son practice, was so calming, knowledgeable and charming also.  He knew what to do and is making me a new device.  Samantha also said they would do their best to file with my insurances and see if I can get reimbursement.  The whole thing was a most enjoyable experience!  Highly recommended!! UPDATE I have been meaning to write this but life just got away from me!  Since I wrote the review, Samantha tirelessly worked on getting not only my primary insurance to pay up…but also my secondary!  This office not only feels like the US Enterprise, their work is amazing, Dr. Matt is as charming and informative as you could want, and the staff…notably Samantha, are just fantastic!  She seriously was at this for months! And she got the perfect result from her diligence and commitment! I couldn’t recommend them higher, if I tried!

Starship Dentalprise. Seriously. It’s like stepping into the future, all white walls, glowing blue lights and thick glass doors that open with a whoosh. If it’s cutting edge in dental they have it: 180 degree xray, digital macro photography, 3D teeth scanning and crown making. They will even give you a big glossy print of your xray and tooth photos. All this might be cold if it weren’t for the warm human element. Derin, the dental assistant, couldn’t have been more charming. Dr. Mark, while expressing concern for the state of various teeth in my mouth (including one growing in a somewhat alien nature), wasn’t scary just matter of fact, and clear about what needed to happen and in what order. Crown prep visit: About as easy as a dental visit gets. The Dr. Mark uses a robotic anesthesia needle which literally caused no pain at all, nor did it freeze half my face. You can watch Netflix, or listen to music, and before you know it, the drilling is done. The doc 3D scanned my teeth with a wand-like scanner (painless), and will send that data to the a company that uses CNC machines to mill lithium silicate ceramic into crowns that are supposed to fit perfectly. I hope so! So far everything’s been great. Oh–and when you leave you get a delicious cookie! UPDATE: Dr. FRIEDMAN MAY HAVE SAVED MY LIFE. That’s a lot to say for a dentist, but he truly may. He’s so thorough in my scans and photographs, that he found an odd lump on my upper palate. He referred me to an oral surgeon who did more scans, then referred me to a neurosurgeon who said it’s good this was caught when it was, or it could have lead to very serious illness. And throughout, Dr. Friedman has personally called me three times to follow up and see how I’m doing, a very caring thing to do. No other doctor, or dentist, ever noticed what he immediately spotted, and apparently it’s been going on for years. So thanks again, Dr. Mark, for being a mensch as well as a pro! To be continued…

I used to have severe anxiety about going to the dentist.  I am so glad I found Dr. Matt at Friedman Dentistry.  I was able to get my needed treatment in a comfortable and caring atmosphere. I will definitely be recommending them to the rest of my family.

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


I have been going to Dr Matt Friedman for over 8 years. I always get compliments on my teeth and am so thankful for his level of expertise and professionalism. His office is exceptionally clean and the staff is so professional. I would never consider going anywhere else!!! Thank you Dr Matt!!!!

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


My experience here was amazing! All staff was super friendly and attentive. Dr. Matt took care of me and did a wonderful job! I highly recommend this office to anyone in the valley as it is by far the best!

Amy B. from Ventura, CA (Source: Yelp)


After having a horrible experience with another dentist I finally decided to try Dr. Friedman.  He is very knowledgeable, caring and makes sure that his work is quality.  He was very through and wanted to make sure that I was happy with the outcome.  Thank you Dr. Friedman for caring!

Richie S. from Reseda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an appointment today at 9 and I was blown away with the technology that thy have at this dental office. I felt like walking in the starship enterprise. They took a video of the procedure and added that to my file. So I can see after what they did and what problems I had with my chipped tooth. I will definitely refer my family and friends here.

Dan D. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


These guys are creme de la creme.  Expensive, no question, but if you want the very best, no one comes close.  Don’t be fooled by some of the Beverly Hills dentists that overcharge and whiten your teeth to look like Kabuki theater. If you want the best dental experience of your life, an experience that, dare I say, you will actually enjoy, GO SEE THEM.

Ron G. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friedman Dentistry is what dental offices strive to be, professional and caring with beautiful offices. I found the employees to be very cheerful and kind. I would recommend Friedman Dentistry with full confidence that your experience will as good or better than mine since that is the way they operate.

Jason S. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Ive been going to Dr. Friedman since i was 16 years old (im now 37!).  One of the things i love and appreciate about him is the personal care he gives me.  He knows my teeth, my general health, how strong my gums are etc… He personalizes his treatment so that it’s specific to my needs.  He doesn’t just fill a cavity to fill a cavity.  Because he cares to learn and know what’s going on in my mouth he can determine when the right time for everything is.  And most of all, he is smart and precise, and he has the most insane equipment.  Everything is state of the art.  Right down to the apple tv i watch for 30 min as my teeth are being clean.  Makes the time fly by.  He’s the best.

Erica K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I finally found a great dental office!  Both Dr. Matt  so kind and truly care about keeping your teeth and gums in tip top shape.  I can’t say enough about how clean the office is and how nicely I have been treated at my recent visits. I also just completed Invisalign with Dr. Matt and I couldn’t be happier with the results. I had braces when I was younger, however, my teeth started to move over the years and Invisalign did the trick! I am getting married in a few weeks and my teeth look beautiful. My new smile has made me more confident and I can’t wait to see how my photos turn out!

I didn’t think it was possible to step out of a dentist office smiling.   In fact, I walked in grumbling and thinking the next hour or so of my life was going to be torture.   But the state of the art technology and the uber cleanliness piqued just a tiny bit of my interest and excitement to see what fun gadgets they have behind the swooshing sliding doors.  And boy was it like the next generation Apple lovers heaven. So you would think that in such a nice office there would be an air of portentousness…. Nope!   Everyone was like really, really nice.   Moving forward to the tough part, the part that makes me sweat, the part that makes my heart beat a little faster… The dental work!   Well, let’s just say that Dr. Matt Friedman was a dream.  The only perspiration I got was from watching the suspense of Emily Thorne plotting her next move on the show Revenge.   Friedman dentistry gives you your own personal headphones and Netflix!  Dr. Friedman was so gentle and easy that I didn’t really notice he was there however I was a bit perturbed that he was also fast since I didn’t get to watch the end of the episode ;-). The pièce de resistance was the homemade cookie that Dr Mark Friedman bakes every morning for his clients as they leave. Yeah I said cookie and I liked it!

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


It is so clean and high tech that I think I could eat off the floor. The dentist and hygienists were so nice and helpful to me and would cater to my personal needs. I would recommend them as your first option while looking for somewhere to use as a normal dentist office!!!

Lauren B. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Matt and  at Friedman Dentistry at the best! They are so thorough and kind and real dental experts. They helped me avoid totally unnecessary gum surgery (that other dentists suggested, for the completely wrong reasons it turned out) and they have taken great care of my teeth. They are honest, hardworking, and trustworthy. Their office is state of the art, and their staff is top notch. You can even watch movies and television shows on Netflix while they work on you! And they give you cookies when you leave. What’s not to love? They make going to the dentist fun.

Pam G. from Valley Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Friedman is not only a miracle worker, in my opinion he is one of the best dentists, period. I have been a patient for 30 years and I trust him with my whole family. He can make the most complicated and difficult dental procedures easy (and PAINLESS, very important), and he also has the amazing talent of making ANY teeth (no matter how damaged) look good. He is incredible. He explains everything, you know anything he does is only with your best interest and he makes going to the dentist a good experience. I very highly recommend him to anyone who wants their teeth to look good, and feel good. Pam G

Greg H. from Valley Village, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Simply best, most caring, professional, and thorough dentist around. Always friendly and puts their patients first. Highly, highly recommended. Been going for years and will never change.

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


Really, 5 stars is all you can give?! This team deserves way more than ‘stars’. Dr. Mark and Dr. Matt gave me back my self esteem and really there’s no amount of ‘stars’ to properly communicate that, a million stars would still not be enough! I, like most, loath going to the dentist. I always feel inferior and uncomfortable laying back in those torture chairs while a man behind a mask pokes around in my mouth. Unfortunately, however, I was born with undersized teeth (thanks dad!), thus requiring some trips to the dentist for bonding. I was always told the bonding was a temporary fix until I got old enough to get veneers. It was a maintenance nightmare! The bonding would chip and discolor often so I just go use to not smiling. How sad is that!? Time went by and now that I’m in my late twenties I revisited the idea of restoring my tiny teeth with a more permanent solution. I was ready for veneers, but had two obstacles to cross first: 1. Finding the right dentist & 2. Finding the courage to go! I did my research and knew that Drs. Friedman were the best, mastering esthetics and dominating the veneer front. These were my guys without a doubt, but I was still TERRIFIED to actually follow through. I took a deep breathe and we took everything one step at a time. First, my consultation. Dr. Matt evaluated my teeth and his recommendation was to revisit orthodontics first. He explained that my bite functioned correctly, but to ultimately have the best cosmetic results, the positioning of some teeth needed to be tweaked. I understood what he was saying, but after four years of braces as a kid, I had no desire to this. He listened to me (which in itself is so rare these days!) and said that we can forego the ortho (only because my bite was correct!) and move forward with the veneers. Second, design time! I knew I gave him a challenge by not doing the braces, but he was up for it! He designed my veneers on some software in his office and showed me where one would be ever so slightly larger than the other and a slight space would still be open on the right side. I could tell he wanted to make sure I understood everything before we took the next step. Even with these two MINOR discrepancies, my teeth would still look a million times better and I was ready to move forward. Next, my appointment. Although I was excited to smile again, I was EXTREMELY nervous for the actual appointment. The Netflix was a sure distraction, but ultimately the nitrous and Dr. Friedman’s expertise is what put my nerves at ease. The chair I was in (which is memory foam and sooo comfortable btw) probably has my hand prints embedded into it because I was gripping it so tight while waiting for the injection, but guess what, I DIDN’T FEEL A THING! Their method for delivering anesthetic through a computer controlled ‘wand’ is AMAZING! I never felt the needle, which was one of the parts I feared the most. The entire experience was the exact opposite of what I was expecting! I was relaxed and laughing during my appointment, WHO SAYS THAT ABOUT THEIR DENTAL VISITS?!?! Just two painless visits, and like magic, I now have a smile to die for! I’ve literally gotten a compliment about my teeth every day since I left Friedman Dentistry. At the risk of sounding cheesy, I really feel like Drs. Friedman changed my life. There isn’t a price tag you can put on someone’s self esteem and honestly I feel a million times more confident. Smiling without covering my mouth is a freedom I’ve never felt before. They have a fancy office and all the skill in the world to back it up. I’ll recommend Friedman Dentistry to everyone who listens! Bravo, Dr. Matt, Bravo!

Jason K. from Lynnwood, WA (Source: Yelp)


As someone who hates changing doctors/dentists, I have to say I am SO GRATEFUL that I took a chance on Dr. Matt! Hands down the best dentist office I’ve ever been to.  Friendly and experienced staff who did anything to make me comfortable, absolutely incredible state of the art office, and the option to watch Netflix while receiving treatment!  I would highly recommend Dr. Matt to anyone looking for a friendly/ experienced Dentist.

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


Let me begin by saying that I never viewed going to the dentist as an enjoyable experience. But after being referred to Friedman Dentistry and visiting Dr. Matt, my views have definitely changed. It was a very enjoyable experience to say the least. As soon as you walk in you are greeted by the friendly front desk staff. Then as you walk through the halls of the office you feel like you are walking through a futuristic spaceship. Like something out of a movie. Then you go into one of the rooms where you are shown to your chair to relax a bit until the Dr. walks in. You even have the option to watch Netflix while you wait. How cool is that? As soon as Dr. Matt came into into the room he made me feel right at home. He used the most advanced 3D scanning software to do a full analysis of my teeth and see what he was dealing with (LOL). He then went over my options in detail. The diagnosis was that I needed some deep cleaning and then had to replace a few very old veneers. The veneers were actually the main reason for my initial visit. After doing the cleaning I was ready for the veneer update (I actually had crown and veneer combination put in). Dr. Matt went over the new shapes and after precise color matching I had my new teeth put in. And they look great! I think even better than before, I am very happy with my new teeth and Dr. Matt did an exceptional job. I will be coming back to Dr. Matt for my future dental needs and would recommend him to anyone looking for a professional and knowledgeable dentist in the valley. Thanks Dr. Matt!

I first met Dr. Friedman in 1979, when I was a little daredevil who broke her front teeth while riding her bicycle.  He took me under his wing, understanding my disappointment about my new, awful appearance and how to help me to have a beautiful smile despite the root canals and dead teeth that resulted from my accident.  I haven’t lived in Southern California since 1989, but I make a point of having my cosmetic dentistry done with him whenever I need it, fitting it in around visits to family.  He is smart, thinks problems through, has a good eye, and has always had a lot of integrity.  Whenever I’d get work done where I was living, I’d inevitably have him fix it at my next visit home.  Dentists would claim they could improve on his work and they just couldn’t.  He just “knows” my mouth and its idiosyncrasies so well.  From time to time, I recall we would switch dentists as a family, looking for someone who cost less for checkups or something.  Inevitably, they’d start recommending a ton of expensive fillings and we’d realize again that Dr. Freedman was just worth it and go back.  He would never do a thing like that.  Ever.  He’s a great general dentist, and a great cosmetic dentist.  Enjoy!

This dental office is so clean and so high tech with Star Trek like doors, reminds me of the Apple store. Dr Friedman examines your mouth using a super high powered microscope… he even e-mailed me a short video with voice over about my cracked tooth.
Dr Friedman spends a lot of time with you and I never feel rushed he takes the time to explain and answer questions. Everyone in the office friendly and kind you can tell they really care about their patients. The hygienist I see spends about an hour cleaning my teeth (while I watch Apple TV) my teeth feel like glass afterwards they are so smooth, at my prior dentist the cleaning was pretty quick and my teeth never felt smooth like they do now. My experiences with Dr Friedman have been pain free he uses a computer injection for numbing which is pretty amazing. Great doctor, highly recommended.
