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

Angela F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


First of all I don’t know of anyone who wants to go have a root canal. I had complained for years about a previous root canal, but no one listened because the assumption was I should not be able to feel the tooth. However, there was sensitivity and the right amount of pressure on the tooth caused discomfort.  He listened and identified the problem. My experience with Dr. O, was first rate, and I have nothing but good things to say about him and his staff. They are all very personable and professional with down to earth friendliness.  They genuinely care about the patient. I cannot sing their praises enough. In my many years of going to the dentist, I have never had one to give me a  numbing shot without novocaine, and yet I felt absolutely no pain when getting the shot. This doctor knows his stuff and knows where to stick the needle for maximum patient comfort.  I highly recommend him. In fact, Dr. O is so good at what he does, I feel asleep in the chair during the procedure without any drugs, except for the shot to deaden the area. He just asked me to trust him, which I did. It was the most positive experience I ever had in an endodontist’s chair. He has my vote, and the best part is he told me to return in six months for a free follow up exam on his work,  to make sure teeth are doing well.

I was recommended to Dr. Odabashian by my cosmetic dentist. I was not sure about Dr. Odabashian, so I went to his website. I normally didn’t go to a doctor’s website, but I have been doing so lately. I needed to learn more about him and his work. I liked what I saw, so I kept my appointment. I’m so happy that I did. I learned a few things. One, he tells you everything you need to know. Knowledge is very important, and Dr. Odabashian is detailed. Two, he used a microscope to do the root canal. Did you know that it’s very important that they use one? I was having the same tooth done, that a previous doctor did not do correctly. I had a bad infection and could have lost my tooth. Your teeth are very important, so getting it done right the first time is important. Dr. Odabashian has great deal of knowledge, and knows the importance of a tooth to a patient. By coincidence, another family member was referred to him by a different dentist. We are both very satisfied and truly happy with the experience. The staff is also amazing. The two members of the staff that I normally see are Lilia and Ingrid. Amazing women who listen, care, and ALWAYS have a smile on their face. It’s such a relief knowing I can trust them. I recommend all Doctors to recommend Dr. Odabashian, and all patients to see him. From a very happy patient.

Dr. Odabashian is very professional and friendly.   He was very helpful in assessing my problem. I am very grateful that Dr. Odabashian was available and able to help me.  Would highly recommend this dentist’s office. He is thorough, professional, attentive and want you to be as informed on the process as possible, which i found refreshing.   He was referred to me by my husband, who is also very happy with his work.  No one really wants to go to the dentists, but if you have to go Dr. Odabashian will take good care of you.

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


I highly recommend Dr. Odabashian.  I have been to see him countless times.  I have VERY bad teeth.  He has done at least 3, if not 4 root canals for me.  He has always been more gentle than any other dentist I’ve ever been too.  I’ve never been in ANY pain during, or after a procedure with him. He has always been easily accessible, and always willing to see me on short notice. Dr. Odabashian and his entire staff has wonderful bedside manner, and remember our conversations from previous visits, no matter how long ago they were. I know most people are concerned with price.  Trust me, I’m as cheap as they come. Dr. Odabashian is probably in the higher range, but before you say “no” to this, let me explain why even I, the cheapest of the cheap am a convert. I have had bad root canals done from other dentists, only to have to have them RE-done.  I thought I got a bargain, well, it turns out that you get what you pay for. Dr. Odabashian may be a little more expensive, but with his expertise, gentleness, and all around care that he takes of his patients, it’s worth the extra money.  I have piece of mind knowing that his work will last me a lifetime, unlike many other dentists out there.  Dr. Odabashian is the real deal.  He has won awards for his work, and on top of being an endodontist I feel completely comfortable with, he is a pleasure to be around, as is his entire staff.  I can’t rave about him enough.  In fact, this is my first review on yelp EVER, and he deserves it!  If you have any questions about him, feel free to ask, as I would gladly share anything I can about him.

Kristina D. from Moreno Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Odabashian by my Dentist Dr. Lew at Chinatown Service Center Dental Center. I was nervous to get a root canal,  Dr. O and his staff made me feel very good about the procedure by explaining every thing to me before and during the procedure.  I was presently surprised that after the procedure I had little to no pain and was able to eat dinner within 4 hrs. If you are looking for a skilled and highly professional Endodontist then go see Dr. Odabashian!!

Arlet G. from Sun Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m very pleased with Dr. Odabashian. His staff are very nice and friendly I went in his office for an second opinion I was having a terrible tooth ache on a tooth that I had root canal on not by him. So I went to him for second opinion because the endodontist that I had work done on me wanted to perform surgery on my gums & his diagnosis was based on a x-ray I’m so glad I didn’t allow this endodontist to talk me  into surgery all he care is too rip people off stay way from visiting other endodontist. I highly recommend  this office Dr. Is super nice & full of experience he cares about his patients. Supper clean Office he saved me from unnecessary surgery. A+ I will recommend all my family & friends. You guys are the BEST.

Ye S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dear Dr. Odabashian and Staff, After a while you learn the subtle difference of being asked to write a review or personally willing to do so. Your unprecedented work, honest standing to Hippocratic Oath and professionalism gave me the pleasure of writing this letter of appreciation. You have treated a root canal for three months displaying, first, no superiority, secondly, not even once tried to prove your greatness. I felt that it is just because you do what you love. The same goes to every single member in your office, especially Lilia, Ingrid, Elizabeth. It was my honor to get to know all of you. The office full of quality people, endless knowledge and respect. Unhesitatingly, I will recommend your services to any one, be it a friend or a family member. Respects, Elizabeth.

Anna H. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just want to say how appreciative I am of Dr. Odabashian’s work ethic and diligence. He is really a perfectionist– a good trait for a dentist, and is completely no BS.  He says it as he sees it.  Good man and good dentist.  Highly recommend him.

Levi L. from Horsham, PA (Source: Yelp)


Yesterday evening I starting getting some tooth pain.  By midnight I was on the floor with pain.  This was some of the most excruciating pain I’ve ever had. I called his office at 9 when they open.  By 9:30 I was in a chair.  By 11:00 I had my root canal done. I am eternally grateful for their service.  I was seriously about to pull it out with pliers.  Quick and painless, also they were very nice.

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


My visit with Dr. Odabashian was probably the best dental experience I have ever encountered. The reason I was referred to him was due to a root canal that got reinfected due to my regular dentist not getting the tips of the roots and therefore got infected. I had to see Dr. Odabashian a few times because of the infection and he wanted to make sure it was eradicated before he could finish up and get the rest of the root canal that was left behind. His expertise and professionalism is top notch and I knew I was in good hands from the very first visit. His staff are phenomenal and their concern for their patients clearly shows by their attentiveness. I know for a fact that if I ever need another root canal done I will be reaching out to Dr. Odabashian for sure. Thank you so much Dr. Odabashian!!.

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


From the decor in the office, the reception, to the assistants and Dr. Nishan himself … you almost don’t mind getting a root canal. Let’s be honest, no don’t wants one, but if you need one then you can’t go wrong here. Effortless and truly painless. They go the extra mile to ensure your comfort.

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


I was referred to Dr. Odabashian by my General Dentist, Dr. Ariel Rodriguez of Starland Dentistry (Awesome general dentist, btw!!!!)  I was very nervous to get a root canal on my upper molar as my job is as a motivational speaker and I had a big speech the next day.  But Dr. R called Dr. O and they were able to see me and get the procedure done.  From the moment I walked into his office, I felt safe, taken care of, and respected.  Lilia, who runs the office, is a sweetheart. She is knowledgeable, patient, caring, and follows up after every visit.  Dr. O was amazing!!! He was very gentle, kind, and focused and his assistant Ingrid is incredible, too.  (Thanks for the cool sunglasses and the reassuring pats.)  Right after my first visit, Lilia explained everything I needed to know…incluidng that they were avail to be reached 24 hours a day!  WOW!  Talk about dedication to their patients and work. The next day, during my big speech, I chomped down too hard on my tooth and chipped some of my temp filling.  Yikes!!  I called right after and Lilia got me an appt RIGHT AWAY reassuring me everything was just fine.  Dr. O was VERY busy, but he took the time to see me to make sure all was well.  And it was.  Whew! I just returned from my second visit, getting my permanent filling in and everything was just as awesome.  The procedure was painless (I even complimented the doctor on how smooth he was getting my mouth numb) and quick.  They are all rockstars and help you through what could be a really horrible procedure.  Thanks, everyone!

The Doctor with The Lightest Hands! I Recently Had some discomfort with a tooth, Doctor Odabashian Put me under his Microscope & Performed a Miracle Procedure, My Root Canal experience was as pleasant as a walk in the park, Beginning with his pleasant staff and completed with the Doctors Masterpiece! Thanks Again Doctor Odabashian chewing isn’t  painful !

Farzaneh B. from Brooklyn, NY (Source: Yelp)


Excellent and trustable Doctor. Excellent work, excellent attitude and very knowledgable using the best in technology for treatment. Very supportive and helpful office admin. Lilia & Elizabeth are the kindest and they’ve been always very clear upfront about the price, insurance pay and procedure.

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


My first root canal ever – and I am so grateful “Dr. O” was at the helm. I had been in pain for several weeks and was VERY nervous about the words “root canal.” The entire office was supportive and kind (yes, even holding my hand!). The procedure went smoothly. I am now pain free. Granted, I never want another root canal – but I know where to go if I need one. (His fee DOES include follow-up X-rays in the future to verify “all looks good.”.

Omer Tabel (Source: Google)


Dr. Nishan Odabashian practices state-of-the-art dentistry. Extremely fortunate I am to have received dental care under his gentle and masterly hands. He saved my molar from being extracted by a different endodontist, and he spared me from the agonizing and costly burden of an implant. I am grateful to him and to his entire team for the respect and first-class care they provided me.

Michael J. H. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wish I had pages and pages to go on about how outstanding this doctor is.  But not only the dentist himself, but  his entire staff. They are all so nice,  so professorial,  and the most amazing surgical technique! When Dr. O numbed me, I literally didn’t feel it! Not only that,  but the entire root canal procedure took about 20 minutes. How’s that even possible? Dr. O treated my tooth in such a way that after the root canal I did not require a crown.  He put a permanent filing on it and it’s been great ever since. And they even followed up to remind me I had a 9 month check up on the tooth. Look,  everyone wants the best dentist in the world and I  can clearly boast that I  have that dentist in Dr. O. The only bad thing about Dr. O, is that he only does root canals.  I with he did all my dental needs. Hey Doc,  too late to go back to school?

Sur P. from Griffith Park/Los Feliz, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to multiple dentists in the last two months trying to save a broken tooth and fix my other teeth while I was at it. it really sux how many professionals aren’t professionals but con artists, one dentist tried forcing me to do procedures using my insurance expiration date as leverage. Another kicked me out of their office cause I said I was going to get a second opinion, I felt their diagnoses were excessive of which it turned out I was right. I happened to randomly come across Dr. Nishans office, the staff was very positive and made feel comfortable and relaxed as though they knew i was paranoid with sharp metal objects in my mouth, I mean hey that’s how my tooth broke to begin with lol. The staff was amazing, made me laugh even though I bit Ingrid’s finger accidentally and almost puked on her, sorry Ingrid. The office was amazing, Dr. Nishan knows wasup, it was like a state of the art Swiss army Go Go Gadget dental kit lol, the only place I’ve seen using hand held X-ray guns, gyroscopic computer mouse’s and a bunch of other little things. They took tools from other fields like the camera used to look at people’s eyes and incorporated it too teeth, some clever thinking just to get a better look at my teeth 🙂 that was important to me, it verified that the doc was knowledgeable, that he can think outside the box and that he is detail oriented, unlike the prick that caused my tooth to break. They have a community give back special that started on 11.11.11 (that’s my anniversary date) and ends 12.12.12 again very clever doc, its professionals like you guys that are pushing dentistry too new heights. I give u guys 5 stars & 32 teeth.

There is nothing worse than preparing for a visit to the dentist, that is, until the dentist tells you that you need to see an endodontist.  Hence, my visit to Dr. Odabashian.  I was greeted by a very professional and personable front office person (Lilia) who immediately made me feel comfortable. Within a few miniutes I was brought to the surgical area where xrays were promptly taken.  Dr. Obadashian arrived momentraily, took my hand in a warm and welcoming way and we spoke for about 15 minutes. All my concerns were readily dispersed.  I was there for a gingivectomy and a root canal which can be quite a painful procedure, especially when the root is calcified and longer then expected.  Once Dr. Obadashian began the procedure, I knew that his expertise and gentleness would produce a pain free experience both during and after the procedure.  His spirituality and his approach to his profession must be considered on the highest level of excellence.  Leah S.

Amazing! this is office is the most professional office i have been to in quite a long time.  exceeds all expectations. Professional , curtious, informative, clean, Dr. o’s bedside manner is impecable. unfortunenately i had an accident that involved my front teeth, the office made me feel like my concerns where their only concerns and that somehow i would not have to worry about anything else once i stepped in the door (and i didn’t) ! micro-endo dentistry , the doctor and staff brought back the feeling of “i am a person”, that deseves the best care .   thank you.

Sandra Z. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I made the mistake of going to a dentist who recommended removing my silver fillings which I found out causes more damage then good, I subsequently needed to have root canals on all of the teeth affected by removing the silver fillings. I went to see Dr. Odabashian and had 5 root canals done out of 7 with absolutely no problem. I was experiencing extreme pain in my ears and neck. Dr. Odabashian was very patient and explained everything. I had absolutely no problem after and the pain on my left side was completely gone, unfortunately Dr. Odabashian no longer practices in Las Vegas so I had to go to another Endontist. I had yet another root canal done with completely different results, I have never written a review before but if you need a Endontist Dr. Odabashian is who you want to see. I will travel to California in the future.

Aleksander M. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Odabashian did a magnificent job on my root canal. Having undergone through the procedure once before with terrible results from a previous endodontist, I was surprised at the great results that this procedure had. The whole treatment was pain free and Dr. Odabashian was inquiring of my state throughout that time. The staff were very welcoming and answered any questions that I had of the root canal. In all, this is an endodontist I am bound to visit again for any future root canals.

Ange B. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr Odabashian. He redid 2 root canals for me and i couldn’t be happier. The root canals were originally done by a different dentist . I visited a few doctors who all told me that the root canals were performed so poorly, that my only option was tooth extraction. They also informed me that the roots were too close to the facial nerves and i was facing the possibility of losing feeling on one side of my face. Luckily i was referred to Dr. Odabashian and he was able to redo both root canals. He is very professional and dedicates the time required to perform the procedure to perfection. It was truly a blessing finding Dr. Odabashian and i thank him for saving both of my teeth. Dr. Odabashian and his entire staff are just WONDERFUL.

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


Dr Odabashian and his staff, Ingrid and Elizabeth, were first rate!  I’ve had root canals in the past and they were extremely uncomfortable.  Although never fun, this root canal was definitely doable.  The entire staff made me comfortable.  They’re excellent!

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


The BEST endodontic, root canal specialist. Dr Nishan Odabashian saved my hopeless helpless tooth from being extracted. His work is pain free and uses high tech equipment.

I will definitely recommend you to all my friends & family.

Tanith Q. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was extremely impressed and highly satisfied with my first visit to Dr. Nishan Odabashian’s Office. The two staff members that I met were extremely friendly and helpful. I came to Dr. Nishan Odabashian in an emergency visit. I was referred to him by my dentist Dr. Anna Harmandarian (She is also amazing!) because I was in a need for a root canal. This was my first time getting a root canal and everyone eased my fear. Dr. Nishan Odabashian was so gentle with the whole procedure. I was so astonish how the shot for the Anastasia felt a slight pinch and did not hurt at all. I was able to walk out of there with my tooth fixed and I highly recommend visiting him for a consultation. Especially if you need a root canal.

John F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred by my regular dentist to Dr. Odabashian for root canal work and was expecting discomfort and a long couple of hours but was unbelievably surprised to find that I was comfortable and as relaxed as can be given the procedure I was enduring.  So much so that I fell asleep while Dr. Odabashian was working on procedure!  The staff is great and was done very quickly!  Dr. Odabashian was always letting me know what was going on the whole time as well as the rest of the staff. Never thought a root canal could be this way.  Wow!

Lisbeth S. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a bad root canal and was referred to Dr. Odabashian. He treated the tooth meticulously for about 8 months till he made sure it was healed. I would highly recommend them. Everyone is friendly and super helpful.

Sid A. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never been to a more friendly and professional office. A great team and so gentle. My root canal went exceptionally well even though i was so scared i even made scared sounds. Dr Obadashian said just the right things to help me get through it. He has a wonderful sense of humor and even asked how my teddy bear was doing who i held on my lap through the root canal treatment. He is wonderful and all the staff are too. So competent and really fine! Thank you thank you for getting me through it and it didnt even hurt!! Love Sid, the artist.

Sero G. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to my general dentist for a mouth guard and he found some issues on my teeth from work done on them from my childhood. He said I would have to go to a specialist. I was referred to Dr Odabashian. Everything was professional, direct, and to the point. Work was done as efficiently as possible and wouldn’t take more than 40 minutes to an hour on average. Dr. Odabashian and his staff(Lilia, Raquel, Ingrid, Anna) were very kind and patient. They answered any questions I had and would schedule my appointments ahead of time even when I told them I had to meet a specific deadline due to my new hectic work schedule. I’m not sure how painful a root canal is supposed to be, but every time I left the office, I did not need any pain medication(Advil, etc); and the numbness from the injection wouldn’t last too long either. Would highly recommend to everyone. Thank you Dr. Odabashian!

Arto H. from Tarzana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Odabshian performed two root canals on two molars & retreatment.  He was very gentle, caring & competent. An almost painless experience! I don’t wish a root canal on anyone.  But if you need one, Dr. Odabashian is your man!
