Our Family of 5 have been using the services of Gardena Family Dental for almost 2 years now. Dr. Yamazaki and Dr. Lana along with the ladies that assist them and the front desk are very friendly and always greets us with a smile. Going here is hassle free, the wait time is very minimal – you get in and out after your appointment. The Doctors are very thorough and detailed when a procedure is needed or recommended. I have 3 teens that no longer have the fear of going to the dentist. The entire staff helps you feel comfortable and at ease when you visit. My family loves and appreciate there genuine attitude. We are not just another number or account for them. We would highly recommend and trust there services for you and your family. Keep up the Great Service Gardena Family Dental!! The Ah-Hong Family.

I found this dental group via google search for someone that would do emergency dental work without insurance, and I’m very pleased I gave them a chance. The front office staff are amazing and super helpful, the assistants are friendly and very competent, and Dr. Yamazaki is simply brilliant- I’m afraid of needles, but when she had to use Novocain on me, I never even felt the syringe. It’s a very talented group that I’m definitely going to keep seeing in non-emergency situations!

(Original) Siempre es un placer ir a este consultorio dental el personal de la oficina es muy amable y l@s doctor@ que nos atienden no se diga… excepto el día de ayer alguien que atendío a mi hija hubo algo que voy a discutir.

Can’t speak for the other 3 doctors, but I like Dr. Yamasaki. She’s calm and professional. Her dental assistant, Linda, is friendly and nice. Mirna at the front desk is very competent and helpful. All in all, a great dental office to go to. I’m even recommending my wife to come here.

Me and my gf  have been going to Gardena Family Dental the last few years, and they are the best Dentist office I have gone to. Out of the 4 different dental offices I have used in my life they are the friendliest and most efficient in getting me in and out. Shout out to Myrna at the front desk who is always warm and welcoming.

My family and I have been coming to Gardena Family Dental for about 2 years now. We visit monthly, due to the fact that both of my daughters have braces. Every time we visit the staff is very welcoming and courteous. My girls NEVER had complaints. In addition, never a long wait. We highly recommend them!.

Lorena P. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and I have been coming to this dental office since we moved to Gardena a few years ago. The wait time is minimal but there are some wooden educational toys in the waiting area to keep the little ones entertained if they get restless. Limited parking is located behind the building that must be accessed through the alley. However, there’s usually plenty of public parking on Gardena Blvd itself. The front office staff is friendly, professional and always accommodates our needs/requests.

Love this dental office! Small family dentist, short wait time and everything is thoroughly. Braces and children’s specialist offered. They even offer dental insurance. Great for the whole family.  I recommend this dentist to all my friends and family.

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


First off I would like to say how warm  and welcoming the front and back staff is . I hate my teeth and need an implant . Going to the dentist is embarrassing for me. But Gardena family dental makes me feel very comfortable and that embarrassing feeling goes away. The dentist I saw was new well from the last time I was there. She was so awesome! I travel all the way from Santa Monica . And I can’t wait to go back and fix my teeth! Definitely recommend to come here.

Going in there for the first time feels like someone let you in on an amazing secret. The reception room / lobby is serene with a view of the garden. Very neat and the children’s interactive toys look tidy. The staff is accommodating and experienced, specially when it comes making children feel at home and less anxious; which was something I very much appreciated when I brought my child in. Even the tone of their voice makes a child welcome and feel a part of a cooperative process. The equipment available for the services rendered are state of the art and very clean, down to the TV monitors. The imaging results were almost instantaneous. And everyone worked in a very fluid way that shows finely honed skills and familiarity with their patients as well as the nature of their work. Dr. Yamazaki was very reassuring, detailed and spoke in a manner that is easy for me, and my child, to understand. The staff also explained procedures and the functions of each tool before using. A novel approach but it gets the job done smoothly. My experience was unlike any other family or children’s dental office, as it has been the best – both for me and my child.

I have 2 young children and needed a new dentist. I reviewed and visited 2 other dental groups before deciding on Gardena Family Dental. The staff was very welcoming and supportive of my children. Dr. Yamazaki and Dr. Polido was very professional and worked well with my children. The staff took their time to explain everything. I am so glad that I found this office and highly recommend Gardena Family Dental.

Diana M. from Compton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very nice and welcoming office, it was so easy and fast to get my appointment.  The staff and Dr. Answered all my questions and didn’t leave the room until I completely understood why I need to get my treatment.  Not to mention I didn’t have to wait long for them to bring me in the room.  My previous dentist would take about an hour after my appointment time to bring me in or to even acknowledge me. Loved this place will be recommending my friends and family here.

Well, that was very nice. I’d been searching for a dentist for about a month now. My insurance company was giving a lot of referrals but non of them were working out for one reason or another. One turned out to be deep in the Ghetto! Nothing against people that have to live in such places or even the very nice staff that worked there but… was like something out of a really bad movie. A scary, violent movie. So….I searched for another week and stumbled on Gardena Family Dental here on yelp. I was still worried about what I was going to find after past experiences here in Los Angeles. As you can see by my “Rating”, those fears have been crushed by this dental office location, staff, cleanliness and the amount of time the dentist took with me and all my (many) questions. This was the third dentist I have seen in about six months. The first two insisted I needed surgery, the second one said I had cavities. The dentist I saw today at Gardena Family Dental said that not only did all my teeth look okay but that I looked in great health as well. Now I have the feeling that the first two dentist were looking to make a quick buck and Gardena Family Dental was just calling it as they saw it. The best things about Gardena Family Dental: 1. Easy to get to. 2. Easy parking. 3, Easy setting appointment and initial paperwork. 4. Short wait to be seen by doctor. 5. Doctor explained clearly and fully, what she found/ didn’t find. 6. Doctor answered all of my questions and didn’t rush any part of the examination or consultation. I definitely will return!

The staff are professional, helpful, and friendly. I’m extremely self conscious about my teeth, but the staff at the office make things easy going. They take their time to explain their procedures and answer any questions that I may have. They are also extremely flexible with making appointments!

Joana A. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


The office is great. I love the staff very friendly and professional.. I have been with them for two years now. My braces experience has been lovely. Dr. Yamazaki and Mirna are great. Mirna works with my work schedule. She understands the pain I feel when work gets in between and I have to call 4 times a week to reschedule. You guys are great… thank you for the care.

Karin T. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


My children have been coming to this dental practice for the past four years. I have always been very pleased with their dental care. They get checkups,  cleanings, x-rays, and sealings each time.   So far my 11-year-old has no cavities, and neither does my 8 year old. I am trying to get insurance so that I can go to them too! Kind, with a family feel to the office. Not too big, not too small. Just right for a small community.
