The Chan dental squad is the best! The front desk girl, Katie, is always smiling when I walk in and has a way about her that makes everyone who walks in smile too! Not to mention, she knows the office like the back of her hand and is incredibly thorough with the financial side of things. Victor is a great guy and is also always laughing and genuinely seems to be having a good time at work. Lynette and Elissa are amazing too; very thorough, knowledgeable and friendly. And last but not least, Dr Chan is the man! I really hate going to the dentist but this dude makes me feel right at home. He turns on the TV, leans me back and busts a couple jokes before going to work and is always willing to explain to me what’s going on. I really feel like I’m taken care of when I have to come in here and I actually don’t like leaving because it’s such a friendly atmosphere. Definitely recommend checking the office out at least and I’ll be referring all my friends and family to them!

I cannot say enough good about this office . This has to be the best dental practice in Southern California . Dr Chan is outstanding, kind and professional . His work is excellent and always pain-free. My teeth look so much better after my recent appointments, including my teeth whitening , which Mario administered expertly. The whole staff is excellent including Elisa who is my longtime hygienist and Morgan , who always greets me with a smile and a kind word . With the current Covid crisis , I nevertheless feel 100% safe under their care ; they are dealing with this extremely professionally . Thanks to all of them . On a scale of one to ten , I give them a twelve .

I have absolutely nothing but 5-Stars for Dr. Chan and his staff! I am absolutely fearful of the dentist, have had many very bad experiences in the past, but today that changed. From the smile the moment I arrived, to the x-rays, cleaning, and then the talk with the doctor to devise a plan of treatment. I was given smiles, reassurance, and the gentle kindness a person fearful like me needs. I would, without question recommend this office. Update, I have now been to the office a few times. I’ve had a cleaning, and then we started the process of a crown and today I got my first crown! Every step of the way has been calm, friendly, and painless! Lynette gives the most amazing cleans but I love her for the shots! Victor is just wonderful! He puts me at ease and communicates with me every step of the process which helps my nerves. Dr. Chan is fabulous and the best dentist I have ever been to, and I cannot forget Katie who puts you at ease the moment you get there with her warm friendly smile and hello! Without a doubt, without question the best dental office!

Had a really great experience on my first visit to this office :). Staff are very helpful, knowledgeable, and friendly, and the offices and overall facility are very clean and welcoming. My hygienist, Lynnette, and Dr. Chan were both very thorough in walking me through all the procedures, assessments, and next steps for taking care of my teeth. I couldn’t have asked for a better first visit to the dentist! Thank you all! Will definitely be recommending to friends and coworkers.

Dr. Gregg is a great dentist, knowledgeable, and professional. The staff there are also exceptional. They truly care about you and your teeth. My favorite hygienist is Elissa. She is great, and cleaned my teeth super well. All my appointments have been right on time and I’m in and out without any delays. They have plenty of parking, and a very modern office. I highly recommend them.

★★★★★

Never thought I’d say this about a dentist, but what a wonderful experience! Dreaded looking for a new dentist after my prior retired and so put it off for a couple of years. Found Chan Dental through my MetLife provider directory and they have been incredibly friendly and professional. From the front office staff-to the hygienists-to Dr. Chan himself! He explains everything in detail so there are no surprises. The new patient registration process is all done online which worked seamlessly. Quick and efficient as well-went to have two fillings replaced during my lunch hour and they finished and had me on my way with time to spare! Totally recommend Dr. Chan and his wonderful team to anyone seeking or looking to change their dentist!

I had a bad day fishing the Big Island in Hawaii when I bit down on a Lays potato chip filled with poke, and tiny morsels of sand snuck into my mouth… Next thing I know I feel one of my teeth just collapse into 10 small pieces in my mouth, Uh Oh broken tooth and not feeling so Aloha on my last day in Hawaii nei!!! It just happened to be one of my old metal fillings from back in my Navy days that was aching, slowly deteriorating, and it was just time to get it fixed up… I went straight to my go to dentist! Dr. Chan!!! Today I had my root canal and a filling done with zero pain! Yes, I fell asleep and was on a good snore nap time! Let me tell you that I have seen his practice over time just get better and better and better through the years. Dr. Chan has brought in all the state of the art dental technology and equipment that makes everything so much better for all his patients. The office is clean, comfortable, and very welcoming! I have even witnessed the staff improve from good to great, and then to excellence in customer service! “Good Morning Sunshine,” as soon as I walk through the door from reception, to his professional dental techs, and the dental hygienist that always gets my smile bling in’… This practice is the best in the Southbay area if you are looking for a dental practice in Torrance or willing to drive for teeth and excellence in service then Dr. Gregg Takashi Chan, D.D.S. is the one for you. I’ve been going to Dr. Chan for years now, and I was even a patient back in the day before he had taken over the practice from Dr. Yosh! I have had fillings, crowns, and now a root canal! Zero pain and such a friendly, comfortable, affordable, and professional experience!!!

I was a new patient and had a great time in my first appointment. My hygienist was very friendly and informative the whole time and Dr. Chan was great. Not a long wait at all and the reminders they send you are very helpful.

Sylvia Lopez (Source: Google)

★★★★★

Dr. Chan and his staff have been very helpful and friendly. My visits have been very pleasant. I feel they have been very attentive to my dental needs. For example, they have given me advice on how to take care of my teeth better, especially with flossing and how to use a water pick. Overall, the staff is professional and knowledgeable. They are also understanding of when I need to make and cancel dental appointments.

Dr. Chan and the staff are very friendly and helpful.  Elissa – my hygienist , is experienced and keeps up with modern dental technological advances (as does Dr. Chan).  She is very thorough with her services and always teaches me things that help to refine my care routines for best results.  If you saw my teeth when I first started coming to their office over 10 years ago and see them now you would see what I already know – they are good at what they do.  I have complete trust in them and for these reasons I continue to make them my Dental care partners.  Thanks folks!!

Great place to visit if you need some dental cleaning or check up. I haven’t been to a dentist for a couple years since going the dentist is scary. Dr. Chan will make you feel at ease and will explain everything into details. The office staff is friendly and professional and will accommodate your schedule. I had some tooth ache and i didn’t want to wait and see if it would get better on its own. I was recommended to see Dr. Chan and the staff was able to accomdate me so in short notice. Dr. Chan explain to me everything in details so I wouldn’t be afraid. He’s a very knowledgeable and kind, so I felt comfortable asking him questions. (I’m not in the medical field so medical terms is a foreign language). If you’re looking to get a deep cleaning I highly recommend requesting for lynette. She’s kind and friendly and is able to explain everything in details. She’s also gentle so no sore gums afterwards. Overall the staff are extremely friendly and helpful.

I was looking for a dentist in Torrance as I didn’t want to travel up to West L.A. anymore where I used to live. Dr Chan was recommended to me. I googled him and he had great reviews; and I’m happy to say my experience has supported the reviews I read. My experience with everyone in the office has been great from the moment I first reached out to their office and spoke with Elizabeth and Katie, to getting a really great cleaning from Lynette and a fluoride varnish from Areli, to my checkup with Dr Chan. Everyone is so nice to deal with and they took the time to explain things and answer all my questions, and they really made me feel welcome!

I just absolutely love everything about this office. Dr. Chan is wonderful and always makes me smile. I came to this practice literally fearful, and in tears with fear, but they absolutely changed me, I kinda like going to the dentist now! Lynette is wonderful, and I love getting my cleaning with her too! The rest of the staff is awesome, and so accommodating!!! I basically just can’t say enough about how you should all come to my dentist!

I have recently moved down to LA and needed a dentist to start up regular appointments. I found Gregg Takashi and his squad through a coworker and ZocDoc. After 3 appointments I have really seen that they take an evidence based approach to diagnosis and treatment, which I appreciate, and their explanation as they perform work really helps comfort and keep you engaged. The process was very smooth and Katie at the front desk was able to be flexible with scheduling and was knowledgeable to provide answers to all my questions without asking Gregg or others – a well rounded crew.

Keiko F. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Chan is great! I have to say that Dr.Chan gave me a pain free shot. I needed a filling done. The office staff was so accomodating, they had a cancellation and since I was there, they took me right away after my cleaning and crinical exam appointment. I will surely refer my family and friends to this office.

★★★★★

First time at this office and Dr. Chan was my dentist. He was very professional and made my experience at the dental office great! During my exam he explained everything to me so I could understand what was going on and made sure I was comfortable throughout my exam. His office is very clean and his staff was quick to help. I also got my teeth cleaned and his dental hygienist did a great job in cleaning my teeth. It was probably one of the best cleaning I’ve had. I would definitely recommend anyone who needs a good cleaning and thorough dental exam visit Dr. Chan!

Y. Y. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I had a deep cleaning here. The dentist is very detail oriented, gentle and caring. They constantly check on you. Staffs are very friendly. There was no wait time in the early morning. Would be nice if they open after 5pm or on Saturday. To be frank with you, I kinda regret at the beginning that I scheduled a deep cleaning in the early morning(7:30am) on my birthday. I was like, why the heck did I do this to myself…hahaha But it turn out not bad at all. I pretty much just nap on the chair while the dentist did the cleaning. Now I am starting a new year with clean teeth =) Thank you, Dr Chan. I will be back.

Stephanie, the hygienist was very nice and explained everything so well for me to understand. She had no issue with all the questions I asked and was able to inform me about the ways to handle my issues. Dr. Chan was nice, he came in to verify what Stephanie said and it made me feel like they both cared about the well being of my teeth. Mario was the one who saw my daughter and for her first time ever visiting the dental office, she enjoyed it and was not scared. It helped that Mario explained everything that would be done and used to her, he even let her pick out a toy from the treasure chest after. It was definitely a great visit. Will recommend this office and staff to family and friends!

I have been with Dr Chan since he opened his office and have continued to be impressed with the level of care that is provided by him and his staff.  His dental care continually improves in both technology and techniques and his office administration hums silently but efficiently in the background. Furthermore, they are all so friendly and caring that I actually enjoy going to the dentist. (Shoutout to Elyssa, the Best Hygienist Ever!)

★★★★★

Dr. Chan is the best!! He gives honest recommendations as though ” i was his sister”. Their latest addition to the office Elizabeth is a dental “concierge” I’ve never heard of such a position, but it’s a genius! I over heard her giving a tour of the office to a new patient. Love my hygienist’s Elissa and Lynette, they are positive and patient even when I don’t follow up with my home care. Did i mention their convenient location???? I can get my cleaning done on my lunch hour. Thank you Dr. Chan and office!

★★★★★

I am so glad I found Dr. Chan’s office on Yelp. I have not been to the dentist in about 5 years. Recently I started to have some sensitivity in a tooth but turns out the dental hygienist Lynette said I just needed some cleaning and plaque removal. I was also told I do not have any cavities. I am glad this dental office did not try to over charge me for anything and was honest with me. Everyone is soo nice and welcoming. I am just happy I finally found a new dentist office!

Dr. Chan is a great dentist with a great friendly staff. Dr. Chan is very good at explaining everything and has wonderful bedside manners. I was referred to him by my periodontist and I like how they have communicated together to come up with my best care. I also recently had a teeth cleaning and the dental hygienist was so gentle and made what is usually a dreadful experience more pleasant. I am so happy I found this practice as I always have teeth issues but don’t dread it quite as much now knowing Dr. Chan will fix it with care.

★★★★★

Dr. Chen was very professional as well as his staff. The doctor was very knowledgeable and honest in my evaluation of tooth pain. He referred me to the right people to look at a possible bigger problem. He and his staff were very friendly. He has state of the art equipment and a very clean environment. I would recommend him to anyone who needs a dentist.

★★★★★

I love this Dentist!  I usually hate going, but Dr. Chan and his amazing staff turns an ordinary dental visit into a very pleasant experience.  Today was my fourth visit and Dr. Chan replaced my old crowns very quickly in office.  Dr. Chan’s state of the art dental equipment lets him fit the crown and then make it so there’s no waiting.  I can’t say enough good things about this dentist. I’m so happy I found him.

I have been a patient at this office for a long time under Dr. Yoshioka. The transition to Dr. Chan was smooth without skipping a beat. I feel as though Dr. Chan is always up-to-date on current dental trends. All the hygienist’s and staff are knowledgeable and friendly. Common conversations can flow easily making the visit feel less intrusive. I am always learning something new with each visit like new or better techniques with taking care of my teeth in between checkups. I get options on how to handle the next round of “major” dental work or ways to try to prevent the work altogether which is important to me. In the past, I have stopped seeing Doctors in any field because they wanted to push through with certain procedures without any options. At this office, Dr. Chan tries preventative maintenance before going in to fix the issue himself. I don’t get the feeling that it’s “$$$’s per tooth” here, and that’s really comforting.

I’ve been going to this dentist office for at least two decades. In the old days, the dentist was Dr Larry Yoshioka. He was a great dentist who taught dentistry at USC. One of Dr Y’s best students at USC was Dr Gregg Chan. Before he retired and sold his practice, he chose Dr. Chan to take over. In my experience with Dr. Chan, he is an excellent dentist who carries the torch of Dr Y remarkably well. Dr Chan has introduced new ‘upgrades’ to his practice. He has the CEREC computerized 100% porcelain crown system which produces on the site crowns in under an hour. I have several of these crowns and they are all very comfortable, look great, and are transparent to x-rays like real teeth. I just started Invisalign with Dr Chan. The price is very reasonable and I’m expecting to be very pleased with the final result. My favorite hygienist is Elyssa. She is fun to listen to as she cleans the teeth. She’s very thorough using both a water-jet piezo-electric wand followed up by conventional pick scraping. She succeeded in eventually teaching me how to floss properly so I no longer have mild gingivitis. All of the patient rooms at this office are gorgeous with floor-to-ceiling / wall-to-wall windows giving great views of the outdoor well manicured landscaping. The receptionist / business manager Katie is always friendly and very helpful with billing explanations. This is a great dentist office. Give it a try, if you haven”t already. I have no desire to go anywhere else.

I started going to Dr. Chan a few months back when I had a broken tooth and I’ve loved the office ever since.  Great staff, great front desk and always friendly!  I appreciate Dr. Chan’s attention to detail and how I’m always in ahead of my appointment time and out in a timely manner.  Great confirmation system through text is an added benefit!  Since then, I’ve had a teeth cleaning, filling and crown.  I’d highly recommend giving them a shot!

I visited Dr. Chan’s office after my tooth filling had come out the day before. I happened to be visiting my family in Torrance from the Bay Area and luckily he was able to see me that Friday morning!! I was so relieved to get an appointment on such short notice. When I came in that morning, his office was very nice and relaxing. His staff and the front desk girl were friendly and welcoming. Dr. Chan did an amazing job on my filling! I really appreciate his attention to detail and professional work. I was able to get my teeth cleaned and my filling fixed that morning to enjoy the rest of Labor Day weekend! I am very happy I found Dr. Chan and would recommend him to everyone!

Everyone in the office is friendly and vibrant! Elissa – my hygienist has taught me so much about the science behind taking care of my teeth. So, now I know what is good and what is bad. This has helped my tremendously to improve my overall habits and it is paying off with my teeth!! This kind of interaction makes me appreciate their services and keeps me coming back for more. Thanks Dr. Chan and staff. Keep up the good work.

She especially loved that they have a treasure chest where she was able to pick out a toy unicorn. Definitely will recommend friends and family to this office!

I only write Yelp reviews if the service is impeccable! This is an office that cares about their patients. The staff was so kind and made sure I had everything to make me comfortable during my visit. They even offered me a warm blanket when they asked if the temp was ok! Dr. Chan is super knowledgeable and explains anything you ask in normal terms so I understood why I needed a deep cleaning. I also liked that I could ask about cosmetic things without feeling pressured like I have at other offices. The office has the latest technology and reassured me that if I ever needed anything after hours they would be there! Best dentist in Torrance!

Elyssa is the best Dental Hygienist. She is very knowledgeable and explains everything she is going to do and she teaches you how to take better care of your teeth and gums. Dr Chan has the latest technology in his office and I like that he doesn’t push. He’s very calm and easy to talk to. The girls in the front office are very friendly and you don’t really have to wait long to be seen.

I am usually afraid of the dentist, they are my worst enemies. HOWEVER, Dr. Chan and his staff changed that for me. This is the FIRST time I’ve felt comfortable in a dental office before. Not only were they responsive to my sensitive gums during my cleaning, but were friendly and cleaned my teeth very well. My mom is a Dental Assistant (R.D.A.E.F.) and was also impressed by their work. Dr. Chan himself is the best dentist I’ve ever worked with. He explained everything to me before, during, and after my procedure. He was gentle and knowledgeable. Friendly, like his staff. This is the first and only positive Yelp Review I’ve ever taken the time to write, and it’s for a reason. Can’t say enough good things about this office. I drive from Santa Monica (Brentwood area) all the way to Torrance just to see Dr. Chan after he was first referred to me by other friends in the area. It’s worth the trip!
