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

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


I haven’t been to the dentist in over two years due to my insurance getting cut off, etc. So when I received Tarzana Smile’s brochure in the mail, I was skeptical. But I decided to go ahead with an appointment since all of these reviews were all positive. And Dr. Garo Ourfalian and his team did not disappoint. From the time I called in to make an appointment to when I left their office, they made me feel welcome, comfortable and confident. The receptionist was very sweet and welcoming. The hygeinist took her time, was thorough and made sure to be gentle with the areas in my mouth that were sensitive. She did an expert job where as other dentists that I have visited always rushed the cleaning process. They also gave me the best options to continue with more appointments at the lowest cost possible. I look forward to my next appointment!

I had a horrible tooth ache! Dr. Ourfalian helped me, although I had to have my tooth pulled he did such a great job. I had no pain during the surgery or after. He really cares, he called me to make sure I was ok. I really like getting my teeth cleaned, Anne was very gentle. I will always be a patient at Dr. Ourfalian’s office.

Kat M. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I decided to update my review from a 4 to a 5 because Dr. Ourfalian rocks!! He called me personally to see what he could do to provide a 5 star experience. Honestly, if I were a shark I would have requested a free service, but I value his sincerity and meticulous work. Yes, I am still annoyed by what occurred the last time, but his work is definitely worth 5 stars. Dr. Ourfalian is The Man to see if you are looking for the best dentist ever!

I had my teeth straightened using invisalign with Dr. Ourfalian. It was easy simple and fast. I am very satisfied with my end result. I totally recommend him and his office they’re AWESOME! I love their hygienist Ann and Tina they both are very nice and very Gentle.

Looking for a good dentist is like finding a good mechanic. There are many out there but not that many are great,affordable,and honest. Using yelp really helped me find Dr.Ourfalian and I wanted to share my experience with others. He’s a wonderful Dr. and really makes sure that whatever you’re having done will be as painless as possible. He has a wonderful attitude that actually makes going to the dentist a pleasurable expierience.I also  like the fact that he takes the time to explains the procedure and welcomes any questions. Also I would like to comment on the office staff (Amy,Jessica,and Kate) who are extremely friendly, courteous  and completed my pleasurable expierience .

Dr. Ourfilian and his staff are very friendly and professional. he takes the time to explain procedures and treatment options. he does true quality, and professional work. He is very thorough and makes sure you are completely satisfied before you leave. I have gone through many dentist before finding Dr. Ourfilian and his staff and they are by far the best. A very honest family friendly feel.

Dr. Garo Ourfalian and his staff a well-qualified team with experience and exeptional level of care and professionalism; most important he communicates well with patient about pros and cons of treatments and procedures and recommends what is the best for your oral health. if you are new in the area and looking for a good dentist you won it to yourself to make an appointment with him.

Vahagn M. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am proud to be working with Dr. Ourfalian. There are not so many great Dentists out there in this field. He knows whats best for the patient and will approach to each patient in most professional manner. I am his main cosmetic laboratory and we’ve done many wonders. In Dent Studio Inc. dental laboratory strongly recommends Dr. Garo Ourfalian

Maral S. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


It is evident that Dr. Ourfalian is great at what he does. I knew from the first appointment that he was the dentist I would go to again. I was always nervous about going in to the dentist, as most people are, but I felt at ease and assured that I was in good hands. I highly recommend this dental office to all, it is clean and a great environment to be in. Thanks Dr. Ourfalian!

Nairy S. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ourfalian is a great dentist he is very patient, cheerful, wonderful personality and the most important thing he is very honest. He also does a very good job in cosmetic dentistry too. I had a fear from dentists since i was a littler girl, my first visit to Dr. Ourfalian i forgot about the fear and he did my root canal with no pain at all. He was very gentle and patient with me. I recommend him to every one that needs honest and professional dentist. I love the hygienist too. Also, I love being in the office because it’s very welcoming and the staff are very friendly.

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


I am not a review type of person, I actually will have to create a profile to this this, I still rather ask to people I know and trust about places and services, which it is exactly how I have ended up at Tarzana Smiles. Well I must be honest I am beyond impressed with the honesty of these folks really blown away but their simple English talk without trying to sell me stuff or to impress me with big words. Let’s face it, nobody likes to go to the dentist, it hurts, it is uncomfortable, we are all the same…but when a dentist tells you that there isn’t anything that wrong with a tooth and he would not do anything to it if it would be his tooth and takes the time to explain to you how things went and why, well that is a honest man and he has earned my respect and trust regardless what uniform he is wearing. Not to mention the very nice people working for him that are just example of kindness and really willing to help you, simple folks working! Overall fantastic experience.

Helen Z. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Ourfalian for over 13 years. He and his team have done anything and everything to help my family and I. I’ve had basic dental work to teeth needing to be pulled to emergency dental implants. They always make you feel like family and Dr. Ourfalian is the simply the best at dentistry. Jessica, Tina, and Vickie are essential to the team. They always assist you with figuring out dental plans, payments, or anything you need help with. They’re truly an exceptional team and I bring my entire family here and will continue to indefinitely. Thanks Tarzana Smiles!

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


Ever been scared of visiting the dentist office? Yeah, me too. Until I found Dr Ourfalian and his girls at Tarzana Smiles. Now, every time is a piece of cake and look forward to my appointments with Dr Ourfalian and staff. Dr. Ourfalian is hands down the best desntist out there (I’ve jumped around from dentist to dentist because most of them are rough). Been with Dr Ourfalian going on 2 years now and looking forward to many more years to come. Insurance or no insurance, this facility is worth checking out. They set me up with their in-house dental savings plan when I first visited on a chipped filling emergency.

Bita A. from Tarzana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I regret not getting the small cavity under a crowned tooth fixed earlier but Dr. Ourfalian kindly scheduled me to fix the problem immediately. I like how everyone at the office has a smile and there is this brightness and sincerity permeating the whole office. It’s not easy to find an honest dentist so now that I know one, I’m happy to recommend him to others. Thank you Dr. Ourfalian and all the staff for your good works.

Vicky O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ourfalian is the best dentist I’ve ever been too.  He was very informative about everything he was doing, extremely professional, and gental with my teeth.  The staff that greeted me were very nice.  I was seen as soon as I showed up for my appointment.  The teeth cleaning was thorough and quick at the same time.  Dr. ourfalian gave me a treatment plan before recommeding that I spend a bunch of money on a mouth gaurd. (i.e. I grind my teeth in my sleep, and he suggested a mouth gaurd, but instead of trying to push me to purchase one, he suggested doing many things before purchasing the gaurd, like not watching TV before sleeping, and winding down for at least an hour prior to sleep, not eating certain types of nuts, or brushing my teeth after eating lemon flavored foods or lemony foods)  I really liked that he took the time to explain everything to me.  He’s very knowledgable and talked about different studies that have been done regarding the subject of bruxism.  I would definetly recommend him to others.  I had fillings done about 2 years ago, and was very happy with the work done.  He is a skilled dentist and very nice!  thanks 🙂

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


I actually found Ourfalian through my intensive yelp searches & I’ve not been disappointed by any of my visits over the last few months.  I’ve not had a good Dentist in years & so relieved to have found someone as patient, caring & has a true passion for what he does. I always feel good about his work and even the referral he had to send me to for some more serious work at one point.  All good experiences, especially coming from someone who’s childhood dentist lost his license for torching kids – yes, me included. I have nothing but good to say about Ourfalian & his staff.

Mary W. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found a great website for supplemental dental coverage called AFFORDABLE CARE DENTAL online and was asked what city I would like to go to for dental work, I said Tarzana Ca. I was then connected to this office DDS Garo Ourfalian and had a nice chat with the secretary Zoya who is a darling of a woman. I needed some emergency work and within 1 hour i was there and in less time than that was treated and complete with the dentist’s recommendations. I was treated very well.  Garo was so nice to talk to and be around. The Assistants were very cool and pleasant.  I will continue going back here to this dental office. I was very satisfied with the service I got. Plse go here if you need a good honest dentist.  David from Calabasas, Ca

Dr Ourfalian is great! He is very kind, very professional and really cares about the quality of his work and the services they offer. Jessica, Vicki and Tina are all amazing. They make the visits enjoyable, they are always very kind and friendly – and are always super professional. Excellent, excellent. Ten stars!!

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


Excellent dentist. Dr. Ourfalian and his staff treat patients with the utmost care and professionalism. He is a knowledgeable and caring dentist who makes every effort to ensure his patients are happy.  I can truly say that thanks to him and his staff, my smile truly does reflect my inner beauty. Thank you, Dr. Ourfalian!

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


I have been searching for a dentist for a long time!!!! Since I was a kid I have had horrible experiences. But I have finally foung an awesome dentist. Dr. Ourfalian listens to me and is so understanding of my fears. I came into his office expecting to run out of the chair but I was pleasently surprised. He made me feel so in-control of what was going on. He took his time explaining every step. That didn’t only make me feel at ease but it also help me understand that I must floss more. Let me just say that Dr. Ourfalian and his staff enjoy thier profession as much as they care about you as an individual. I am very greatfull for the wonderful experience. I thought I wouldnt ever say this but “I love going to the dentist now”.

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


Dr. Ourfalian & his staff are some of the sweetest people I have ever met. They are always professional, courteous & accommodating. I have never been in that office without laughing, which is always a plus when you are at the dentist. His office has ALWAYS run on time, I have never waited for more than a few minutes to be seen. He even waited for me after hours when I was trying to get there from Beverly Hills because I was in so much pain. I have been seeing Dr. Ourfalian for a few years now and will never see anyone else again. I have needed extensive work including root canals, crowns & bonding, all which has been exceptional. Unlike many dentists out there, Dr. Ourfalian makes sure that you are completely comfortable throughout the procedure, even stopping to give you more novacaine or just a break if you need it. The bonding that was done on my front teeth was amazing, truly I never thought that they could be corrected. A million thanks to him & his staff for everything they have done for me.

Donnita M. from Rancho Mirage, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr Ourfalian for a second opinion because the other dentist I went to said I needed all kinds of work done.  After discussion with Dr Ourfalian we agreed that none of the work was needed unless I had some problem with the teeth in question.  Several years later and no problems.  Also while I was at the office Dr suggested that whitening my teeth would improve my looks and WOW what a difference.  Dr Ourfalian was very thorough, gentle, explained everything so I could understand, and did a great job for a fair price.  Everyone in his office was very nice as well.

Nicole E. from California (Source: Yelp)


There are a lot of Dentists in the SFV, but Dr. Ourfalian is by far the BEST dentist I’ve ever had.  He’s competent, gentle and caring.  He always makes me feel comfortable when I’m in the chair, not to mention he always has a pleasant demeanor.  He makes dentistry a breeze! I have already recommended him to many of my friends and they are totally impressed with his work too! Above all, I think it’s important to trust your dentist, and Dr. Ourfalian is truly the most HONEST Dr.  I’ve been to.  His first priority is you and your dental health then comes everything else.  Wish we had more Dr.’s like him!

Bob K. from Camarillo, CA (Source: Yelp)


No pain.  None at all.  And a cheerful, friendly demeanor.  Dr. Ourfalian takes the time to explain what is wrong, what are the options, and what his recommendations are.  I am a minimalist and he understands that and helps by not doing anything unless it is absolutely necessary.  I would recommend him to anyone, family, friend, even those not so friendly.

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


I’ve been going to Dr. Ourfalian since February now and I can honestly say that his practice and staff are amazing! Everyone there is super nice, incredibly helpful and most importantly, CLEAN. I hadn’t gone to the dentist in a few years and was honestly embarrassed. I explained this to him and his staff and they were not judgmental at all! They quickly made me feel comfortable and now actually make me look forward to my visits. If you’re looking for a dentist, I promise, you will not be disappointed!

Diane S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My dentist retired and a friend referred me to her dentist. Had a fantastic experience, I know the dentist ouch right, but no. It was great. Parking is easy, no pay. Office is clean and Jessica was prompt to get my paperwork and put me right in. Tina was my hygienist. She was kind, considerate. Walked me through everything she was doing. Had patience with my ocd issues. She was thorough with each of my teeth. She got everything off and cleaned out. My teeth feel great. You can tell she really loves what she does. Vicky took all of my xrays with the newest technology. She was fast and efficient. The dr came in and I was able to see all of my teeth on this handy pen camera device. It was great. I’m so grateful to find a dentist office that truly cares about my needs and I just have to hand them my insurance card. So easy and carefree today. Appreciate them all.

Chantal W. from Encino, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ourfalian and his staff are nothing but the best! As a young adult starting off on my own dental insurance and moving to a new city I knew I needed to find an affordable, trustworthy dentist. I have never really liked my teeth and have had terrible experiences with dentists in the past but now I can honestly say I don’t mind coming to the dentist and I feel much more confident about my smile and my oral hygiene thanks to them. I had a minor infection and the Dr. got me in the same day and explained everything to me. They are affordable and professional. I moved further away and I gladly drive over 45 mins because I now don’t see myself going anywhere else

C. B. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fabulous!!!! Dr. OURFALIAN is just the BEST. His staff is wonderful, especially Jessica, she is very compassionate and understanding. Dr. O is very kind and very professional. He does amazing dentistry. He did cosmetic dentistry on me, and WOW it looks terrific. If you want a great dentist with really good dental skills, then go see him. Don’t waste your time with pushy overbearing dentists; go see Dr. Ourfalian. My husband and I love the hygienist; she is very gentle and she does a great job. I just can’t say enough about this dentist. Don’t hesitate about this dentist. If you go see him he will be your dentist forever. Easy parking and he validates your parking.

Dr. Ourfalian and his team are great! They provide excellent service and are not always trying to up-sell you. I value his honest opinion and compassion. His rates are reasonable and they will do a cleaning and check up all in one visit. Today was my third cleaning with Dr. Ourfalian and I will be recommending him to all my friends and family because I am totally impressed with their services. Thanks for being authentic and such a wonderful person Dr. Ourfalian!

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


Saw Dr. Ourfalian last week for the first time. Although his findings for my husband were very very bleak, he still had an amazing outlook for him and made us both feel like he could really help. I would highly recommend him, he is so friendly, spends a lot of time getting to know you. He even offers a dental insurance for his patients.

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


Dr. Ourfalian is the BEST Dentist I have EVER had. My husband found him in the middle of the night when I had serious dental emergency two years ago. He came to my rescue!

I can’t not say enough good thing about him!!! Very Happy Patient! Mercedes
