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

Dr. Greg Stern is SO FABULOUS that I travel 120+ miles to see him!  I visited 4 local dentists (in the Temecula area) and had serious problems every time.  After contacting Dr. Stern via telephone and his ingenious ability to solve my dental problems over the phone that the local dentists were unable to even diagnose in person, I decided to make the commute.  It has been well worth every mile! LUCKY YOU if you live in Santa Monica and/or the LA area…you MUST see him and his staff! He has the most gifted hands….and is sensitive to the patients’ needs. His dental assistant puts me at ease and the office manager makes everything a breeze!!

Dr. Stern is an amazing dentist. He’s honest and kind and takes the time to explain what he is doing and why he is doing it. I felt like he really cared about my teeth and he gave me the most thorough cleaning I have ever had. The staff and hygienists are also wonderful. I highly recommend him.

My whole family goes here. I finally got a chance to meet Dr. Stern. He goes above and beyond what any other dentist has done during a normal cleaning in my 32 years of life. I was amazed at how detailed the examination was. He truly cares about his patients. Great first impression. Will be swinging friends to him. His front office, Eileen, is super sweet and makes sure to check your insurance benefits for you prior to your visit.

5+ star review from one lucky patient. I was so scared to pull out my wisdom  tooth. If you Google  wisdom tooth extraction, you will see pictures of swollen cheeks and bruised eyes. This did not happen to me at all. And, after leaving Dr Stern’s office, I never took a pain reliever. I could sleep through the night and next morning after the procedure I was in the gym like nothing happened. No pain at all! How awesome is that? The whole process including waiting for anesthesia to work took about only 40 minutes. And by the way, the tooth was broken in half so there was nothing to grub on one side, the gum was shaped a bit strange, but Dr Stern was able to remove the tooth carefully and fast, closing the area with two stitches. Yet no swelling after! I bought Tylenol and carried it in my purse for two days but I never opened the box. This is a doctor who not just knows his job, but he loves his jobs. I could tell that!  My friend said that I need to see the best dentist for my toothache and he sent me to Dr Stern, and he was right! And the whole team is great!

Dr Stern and his staff are the best!! I lucked out working next door to them in Santa Monica for years, getting to know them as neighbors and as a patient. They’re all super nice and professional. They were very gentle with me and dealt better than most with my terrible gag reflex. I continued on for a bit after their move to Westwood but the drive became too difficult after I also moved further away.  I appreciate them sooo much more now since I’ve moved out of the area and am stuck searching for a new dentist!! I only wish I wrote my review sooner. I highly recommend Dr Stern.

I am an oral and maxillofacial surgeon that works with Dr. Stern.  I know first-hand how detail oriented and knowledgeable he is.  He is extremely thoughtful regarding treatment planning of dentistry and has a great chairside manner.  It puzzles me how anyone could give him anything but a 5 star rating.

Dr. Stern is far and away the best, most thorough, knowlegeable and gentle dentist I have ever had.  His staff is friendly, knowledgeable and so, SO pleasant – they really turn a stressful (for many) health care experience into a breeze.   I recently went to him because he’s literally about 100 paces from my office in Santa Monica, in the Colorado Center (previously Yahoo Center – across from the Water Garden on Colorado Avenue at Cloverfield).  I was delighted to find a dentist so convenient who came recommended by a friend from work. Unfortunately my insurance didn’t cover his office, but I decided to pay out of pocket for an exam and X-rays because I had FSA (flexible spending account) money burning a hole in my pocket and I’d rather give it to this dentist and get something out of it then let our horrid government just TAKE it from me by year’s end.  But I digress… Exam was hands down the most extensive and thorough I’ve ever had.   Dr. Stern actually read and asked some questions about my medical history (a first from a dentist in my experience!).  He checked every tooth, on both sides, for gum recession.   They did like, 20 x-rays on me and identified a filling that had come loose and started decaying (my previous dentist’s shoddy work!).  So, I came back the next day (again paying out of pocket with FSA funds rather than going with a “free” option on my dental HMO plan) and Dr. Stern removed the errant filling and refilled it with no numbing and NO pain.  I was absolutely amazed.  Floored. As long as I have teeth in my head, I will entrust Dr. Stern to help me care for them. If you are looking for a truly outstanding dentist, you cannot go wrong with Dr. Stern and his wonderful staff! In case you need more convincing:  my last dentist told me I had decay in my wisdoms and she wanted to remove them all (at once, no less).  Terrified, I balked and then just ignored the “problem” for a year.  After my exam yesterday I specifically asked Dr. Stern how my wisdom teeth were.  His response – “they’re just fine”.   Asked him if they needed to be removed – nope. SO happy I didn’t listen to my old dentist, who was clearly trying to fatten her wallet with a superfluous procedure that would have been terrifying and painful for me. Dr. Stern is THE man when it comes to caring for your pearlies!  If you choose him you will NOT regret it and your teeth will LOVE you for it!

Had a wonderful experience with Dr Stern today. He is always honest and thorough and makes his patients at ease. His office was taking all the precautions during this pandemic and I felt safe and at ease during the visit.

I absolutely love going to Dr. Stern’s office. I really do! I know I am getting the best dental care and everyone is so nice and they really care about you. I’m so lucky to have had Dr. Stern recommended to me years ago. You are the best!

I had a cavity filled by another dentist and it had been giving me trouble fo the past few months. Dr Stern fixed it. He is patient. doesn’t recommend things you dont need and does a great job. he took 1.5 hours to fill it and my teeth feel like nothing was wrong with them!! i love the office staff and I would definitely recommend him. he is totally awesome. And his staff is absolutely great!

Dennis D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a great practice. I’ve seen different hygienists, all excellent. The front desk, absolutely professional and so nice. And of course, Dr. Stern is amazingly good. He has the perfect demeanor, he instills a trust that is rare and his dental work is top notch. Very highly recommended.

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


Dr Stern and his fabulous staff have been cleaning my teeth twice a year for 5 years and they all rock.  This week, I chipped my front tooth with a fork and thought for sure this would be the end of my perfect smile.  Dr Stern is a magician!  He fixed me right up and the chipped tooth looks like nothing ever happened to it.  I was so amazed with the outcome!  I totally trust Dr Stern to keep my whites pearly and healthy.

Best dentist office ever! Staff is so nice and helpful. They never try to push any services and I 1000% trust them. I have asked for services that any other office would say OK just to make some money but this office really wants what’s best for you!! If you’re looking for a honest doctor, which is rare to find in LA, look no further.

Lori S. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down the absolute best!!  Had an infected tooth and They squeezed me in at 4:00 on a Friday!  Who does that?  Dr. Stern does!  Plus, Eileen, office manager, is the nicest and most caring person.  I cannot say enough Great things.  I love the experience so much that I drive from Calabasas to Westwood!  Thanks for everything Dr Stern.

Luisa R. from Pacific Palisades, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The office staff is courteous and responsible.  I felt completely safe undergoing dental work in their offices.  Dr Stern is thorough and conservative and the best hygienists.  I’ve been with the practice for 20+ years….

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


So i had a HUGE cavity on my molar and i was afraid to get a crown yet when im still in my 20’s. So Dr. stern removed all of decay and recreated one of my tooth basically. He does care about his patients genuinely. So thankful he took care of my tooth so wonderful!  The best dentist for sure

Dr. Stern and his staff are simply the best in town. If you hate going to the dentist, you won’t anymore. Dr. Stern has such a fantastic chairside manner and is unbelievably gentle and accommodating. I didn’t feel any pain whatsoever. I can honestly say that was the easiest, gentlest dental procedure I have yet to experience; and I have had a lot! Also, if you need a thorough and immaculate cleaning, ask for Stacey. She is also absolutely stellar!! I could not be happier. Try this office and you will enjoy seeing your dentist too!

Great People, Great Skill, Great Service! We’ve been going to Dr. Stern for over 15 years and always tell people we know about him. We’ve had cleanings, cavities filled and my SO had a major implant after a failed root canal from many years ago.

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


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Stern for several years now, and I am extremely pleased with the level of service that I have received.  He is knowledgeable and communicative, capable and effective.  His office runs efficiently and the staff is very friendly and accommodating.  Literally, everything you need/want in a dental provider.

Tanya I. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Stern has all the qualities you want in a dentist. He’s calm and precise in his treatments and he’s conservative with the quantity of work to be done. He also doesn’t try to up-sell you all his office’s services like most other dentists do. He’s just a good dentist. “Shopping for dentists” is a very uncomfortable process. How are you to know what a dentist is like until they’ve worked on you? And, yet, who wants to discover a “bad” dentist that way? This is how I felt before visiting Dr. Stern on a friend’s recommendation. He really is good. It was a relief.

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


I recently broke up with my dentist.  I had been seeing him regularly since childhood and he was the only dentist I had ever known.  I was faithful.  Even when I went back east to college, I’d schedule my appointments around the summer and Christmas holidays when I was sure to be home.  And after college, when I returned to California and moved to the city, 50 miles away from my dentist, I still made the hour-long trek (oftentimes longer with traffic) twice a year to see my dentist.  But after 7 years of making the commute, the long-distance relationship finally got the better of me.  So I had to move on.  It wasn’t him; it was me. And boy are they right when they say that breakin’ up is hard to do!  So I decided to poll some friends on the westside to get some recommendations.  I finally decided to give Dr. Stern a try and I am so glad that I did.  It was a seamless and beautiful transition.  He is extremely thorough, knowledgeable, and friendly.  You really get the feeling that you’re in great hands and getting top-notch dental care.  He staff is all super-friendly and the hygienist that I’ve had (Judy) is lovely!  She is so meticulous and will make your teeth sparkle!  It’s a pleasure being in her chair.   I look back fondly on the many good years that I shared with my old dentist, filled with with cleanings, drillings, flossing and fillings, but I’m glad I finally moved on!  Dr. Stern and his staff have not only lived up to the standards of my old dentist, but they have far surpassed them.  He and his staff continue to to make going to the dentist a pleasure.

Rob J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have visited Dr. Stern around 4-5 times.  I know nothing about dentistry, but the most important thing is feeling like: 1) I receive quality care 2) I am not being over diagnosed or given too much treatment that is unnecessary. Dr. Stern’s office checks the box on both of these.  In fact, I moved to NYC 18 months ago and decided that I go back to LA enough that I will do my checkups during those visits at his office. If you work in the area, the convenience is off the charts, too.  Water Garden, Yahoo! Center, Universal Building…just float on over.

Steve B. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)


I agree with puja 100%. Dr Stern takes a lot of pride in his work. He works very hard to make sure everything comes out right. He will take the time to rationally explain what is going on with my teeth in a way that makes perfect sense to me. He has proactively called me at home, after a procedure, to make sure I was ok which is something that no other dentist has ever done. Best dentist and best dental office I have ever been to. Well worth the drive.

Ariel G. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have nothing but wonderful things to say not only about Dr. Stern but his whole staff as well. Dr. Stern is everything you’re looking for in a dentist. He is on time, genuine, honest, kind, gentle & down to earth. He takes the time to thoroughly explain any procedure and never recommends unnecessary work. I hope I never have to move out of Santa Monica because he’s the best!

brigid l. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Truly as good as it gets, what an amazing, kind, generous, thorough, thoughtful & great,  great dentist, I cannot express how brillant Dr. Gregory Stern’s work  is, he is committed  & has such pride in his work. You can totally trust this dentist, & his team is just as thorough & caring, your in the very best of hands. Talk about never fearing a dentist, this is how I feel every time I go to  this office.
