Nicckie R. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of the Hales for over 20 years and I highly recommend this brilliant team!   The staff, support team and hygienists are an absolute pleasure –  like me – Stephanie, Debra and Xochilt have been with the practice for many years, which is an incredible testament to the professionalism and work ethic of the office.  Dr. Suzi is my primary dentist and she is attentive, sharp, takes preventative measures, and is an expert in her craft.  As someone with a previous history of major dental issues, it has been tremendous to find a place that I really enjoy visiting and absolutely trust that the care I am receiving is the best

Both my wife and I have been coming to Dr. Brent and Dr. Susie Hale for 15 years, and now my children come here. They are amazing dentists and caring people. Debra my dental hygienist has a gentle touch and does a wonderful job cleaning my teeth to make them sparkly white. Even when I didn’t live on the Westside I would go out of my way to drive to their office because they are worth it. Recently I had my teeth broken playing water polo and I was in the middle of a trial. Dr. Brent came in during the weekend, fixed me up like new. It would’ve been difficult doing my closing argument if I looked like a jack-o’-lantern Highly recommended, five stars

Mark D. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hale is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. She is technically excellent and very careful about  making the patient (me-who’s terrified of going to the dentist!) comfortable

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


I procrastinated finding another professional who could measure up to my wonderful Dentist who had retired…..What a blessing! I was referred to the Hales. Seriously, stop searching for anyone else. You will not be disappointed.  You will actually not mind “Going to the Dentist” and feel secure that you have found “The Best”!

I have been to several dentist in Los Angeles till s friend referred me here. We love this office. Not at all stressful to get a cleaning. To hygienists and doctors are amazing here and so gentle.We used to live close by but now drive from Thousand Oaks because we like the office that much

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


I’ve been coming to Dr. Hale’s office for over 4 years…and I will keep coming even though my job moved from Santa Monica to Burbank. The entire staff is super friendly and accommodating. Appointments almost always start on time (when does that ever happen?!), and Dr. Hale is super funny! I recently chipped my tooth and they got me in the office the next day. You can’t even tell I chipped it because Dr. Hale is like Picasso for teeth. This is your dentist!!

Connie R. from Oceanside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have just move the area and was referred to Dr.Brian and Susan Hale by a friend. I had what I thought was a dental emergency and was able to get an appointment on the day I called. The entire staff was friendly and gracious .After a X-ray  was taken, Dr. Brian Hale examined my mouth and found no serious condition, my pain was related to my Trigeminal Myalgia. I was only charged for the x-ray. I have found a new dental office and made an appointment for cleaning. I am pleased to be a part of this dental office

Kelly B. from Financial District, San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I always have a pleasant experience seeing Dr. Susan Hale for my cleanings. I moved away for a number of years and when I returned to LA I automatically returned to Dr Hale for my teeth care

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


I highly recommend Dr. Hale and his staff to anyone that is in need of a dentist. I have never been to a dentist office where the staff were so welcoming and friendly. They make you feel comfortable, explain everything thoroughly, and overall do a fantastic job. I went in for a regular cleaning and set of x-rays only to find out that I had cavities for the first time ever. They explained all of my options to me and made me feel at ease through the whole process

Jennifer Q. from Santa Barbara, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this dental office for over 25 years….discovered them on 1-800-dentist of all places. I look forward to my dental appointments every 6 months…Dr. Susie is so amazing, always has been. We did Invisaline… Best thing I ever did! And she made it such a pleasure. So encouraging. Stephanie and Deborah her assistant and hygienist are the best. I cannot endorse these professionals enough…and when Dr. Susie isn’t available, there is always her husband, Dr. Brent who is equally as awesome! The only thing I don’t like are the Florida treatments, which they stopped doing because I told them I didn’t like it! Such a fabulous experience!

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


The doctors Hale are knowledgeable and thorough professionals, one of the reasons my husband and I have been returning for more than 20 years.  There is never a feeling of being rushed and explanations are presented in terms that are specific yet not in medical jargon unless it is spelled out for us who do not have medical degrees.  My questions are answered fully. There office is a positive model of what starts at the top, trickles down.  The entire professional staff and office staff are welcoming and helpful in everything they do. I feel fortunate we were introduced to the office by our dentist when he retired

Deborah R. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


For years I have received excellent care from both Dr. Hales as well as the dental hygienists (especially Debra). Additionally, when needed I have gotten appropriate referrals to other excellent providers. All of the staff are friendly and professional and I very much appreciate when Dr. Susie takes the time to explain my options and provides me with general knowledge that helps improve both my oral and overall health

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


Here’s a warm “thank you” to Ada Lee for the care and expertise. she’s given me over the years. Seldom is it said that a dental visit is enjoyable,  but in her case it really is.  Excellent dental care combined with an old friend’s warm concern for the owner of the teeth. Her glass menagerie deserves all the space it can get!

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


I love this dental office.  I was referred to this office by friends who run a dental lab.  They assured me that I would get the very best care here and I did.   When I talked to Sochi and made an appointment I felt very welcome here.  She went out of her way to accommodate me. A lot can be said of first impressions. The front desk sets the tone for how you perceive how professional the office is.  Sochi’s greeting is very warm and welcoming. Then when I met Dr. Susan Hale and Dr. Brent Hale, I knew I was going to get the very best dental service.  They are both very personable and got right to my problems. Last year,  I saw Dr. Susan Hale for the first time.  She gave me a terrific examination.  This year,  I saw Dr. Brent Hale, I had broken a tooth and he took me as an emergency appointment.  He referred me right away to an excellent dental implant center because I needed an extraction and implant.  He made sure I got the immediate care I needed. I would highly recommend both of them. I have already referred my relatives to this office.

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


I have been a patient at this practice for well over 20 years and cannot say enough good things about this office. Drs. Hale and their staff are not only excellent at what they do, but they are honest, caring, kind, and can always help solve any issues that I might be having with my teeth. All of the specialists they have recommended to me when I needed them, were terrific as well. Drs. Hale and staff are very professional but also warm and welcoming. People think it is funny when I tell them that I love going to my dentist! I feel good knowing that I can trust them with my dental care as well as with the rest of my family (husband, children, in-laws, etc). I have referred several friends and they are also very happy with this practice.

Bunny A. from Playa del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Susie Hale is fantastic. I have been going to the office for about 7 years now. I have had a lot of dental work done. All the work has come out fantastic. I can’t say enough good things about the beautiful cleanings I have gotten. All the dental hygiene are excellent The people working at the front desk are extreamly helpful. If you’re looking for an excellent dentist this is the place to go.

Tough C. from California (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely top flight in every respect. Professional and considerate–and that’s just the staff! Dr. Susan Hale is very experienced, competent and talented. I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dental health. The service I receive as a patient AND a customer is extraordinary!

Lisa S. from Pacific Palisades, CA (Source: Yelp)


I wish I could give Dr. Susan and Dr. Brent Hale a dozen stars. I have been a patient for nearly 25 years and could not have received better care. I was in dental crisis a few years ago, when a large bridge broke and a tooth anchoring it cracked. Dr. Brent came in on a Saturday to get me out of pain. On Monday morning, Dr. Susan called to direct me to specialists she had contacted on my behalf. She set up appointments for me and was there when I met with one specialist.  I needed a team, because my case was complicated. The process took more than a year to complete, Dr. Susan was with me every step of the way, and I could not be happier with the result. The specialists she selected are the best of the best, according to a casual friend who has a local dental practice. My brother practices dentistry out of state, and he marveled at the work that was done, saying it surpassed anything available to people in the area in which he lives. The Hales’ office staff is friendly and professional. Dr. Susan and Dr. Brent are highly skilled, caring people who stay current in their field. I found them through 1-800-DENTIST and consider myself blessed. As a child, I rarely smiled, because when I did, people often made fun of me, because I am missing three of my front five teeth on the upper plate. Thanks to Dr. Susan and Dr. Brent, I smile often now

I have been a client since 1987 and have watched your kids grow up with mine. It is rare to find a dentist that you feel is part of your family in addition to giving excellent dental service. It is well worth the trip from Phoenix to LA to continue to see you guys and get excellent care.

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


Hale and Hale DDS is the best! I am very particular when it comes to finding a good dentist. Dr. Hale is always upfront with me about pricing and making sure that it will work with my insurance. They never try to recommend anything I don’t need. I’ve been going to them for the past two years and get two teeth cleanings a year

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


Drs. Susan and Brent Hale are fabulous, caring, talented, empathetic dentists/people.  And if I knew any more positive adjectives, I would use them here. I have been going to them for about 12 years.  They have filled, whitened, capped, and cleaned my teeth as no one else ever has done.  Besides being gentle and thorough, they give OPTIONS.  No other dentist I know does that.  Most dentists say, “this” or “that” has to be done, and that’s it.  Both of the Hales give OPTIONS. Isn’t that the right thing to do?  Cheap they are not, but you get what you pay for (and I have no dental insurance), and I must say that they earn it. BTW: I developed a tooth ache Sunday night.  Called their office Monday a.m., and was in their chair before 11 a.m. Oh yes, another word to describe the Doctors Hale:  ACCOMMODATING.

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


I absolutely LOVE this office. When I first moved to LA, I got a bunch of recommendations for dentist from people at work. I tried a lot of them. They all sucked. One guy even suggested that he immediately replace all of my silver fillings (because they’re leaking mercury). I knew I was going to like Dr. Hale because she went to Northwestern for Dental School (prestigious / in my hometown!) and her hygienist is also from Chicago. (My own weird bias, but for some reason, it seems to work for me…) I’ve been going there for probably twelve years, and have gotten probably the best dental care of my life. Deborah is an amazing hygienist and takes so much time and care with my teeth. And Dr. Suzie is kind of a miracle worker.  In all this time, I think I’ve had one cavity and one filling to replace, and both times, the work was painless.

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


I Grew up In England with notoriously bad dental practices, And also did 4 years in the US Air Force with equally bad work, and still always loved going because you are supposed to come out of the dental office better than you went in…For 27 years of my life (since I was 6, and until 10 years ago) I have not had a good dentist until I found Hale and Hale. This is by far the best dentist I have ever been to and they are just plain fantastic. I have had maybe 15 dentists in my life and this office is amazing and the work they do is top tier. Not only all that but it’s basically a totally painless visit, on your mouth, in your head and in your wallet. Love, Love, Love this Dental office and all the staff. I can’t say enough good about them so I shall stop now 🙂

Karin H. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who likes to go to the dentist? I do! Dr. Susan Hale, her husband and their entire staff are wonderful. Everybody is friendly and professional – you never have to wait. The dentist discusses your options with you, gives you time to think about your solutions and next procedures before you make any decisions. Dr Susan even saw one of my relatives who was visiting from overseas when she had dental problem and didn’t charge us! I love my dentist 🙂

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


I came for a cleaning my first time off the recommendation of a friend. She told me that everyone was friendly, professional and the facilities were clean and she was 100% right. From the receptionist to the hygienist to Dr. Hale, everyone was very friendly and honest as well which is important to me. In terms of parking (which is extremely important in Santa Monica!) you can do metered street parking or there is a structure on the side of the building but you have to pay. Overall, one of the best dentists I’ve been to and I highly recommend them!

Jonathan R. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Not having a dentist in L.A. after moving from Chicago 18 months ago and continuing to see that dentist on regular visits back, I noticed a chipped tooth and wanted to get it taken care of. My wife sees Dr. Susan Hale and recommended I go. Called and actually got an appointment with Dr. Brent Hale later the same day. It turned out to be a minor issue, but Dr. Hale took care of it free of charge and had a really nice conversation all the while. I will definitely be back. Thanks so much!

Jessie N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to see both Susan and Brent Hale for over 15 years and have only amazing things to say about their practice. They are wonderful people and exceptional dentists, and I trust them to give an accurate diagnosis and appropriate course of action. There’s no up-selling, just a clear and considered approach.  My eight year old daughter switched from a pediatric dentist (with children’s movies & toys galore) to Hale & Hale and she loves them too. She even looks forward to going to the dentist for which I am truly appreciative. True, I wish the office was closer to where we live, but we are happy to go across town to see the Hales.

Maya L. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family has been going to see the Hales for years and after just starting with them I see why. Their friendliness makes going to the dentist something fun and I love my smile.  I feel comfortable and blessed to be in their capable hands!!

Gayle H. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been with this office over 25 years. Wonderful patient care specially in the event of an emergency. When it comes to emergency they can assemble a group and you hit the ground running.

Lisette P. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Friendly, calm, and excellent clinicians and office staff all around. I am no longer afraid to go to the dentist! I love my dentist, Dr. Susie Hale and my hygienist Deb Ayala. They have my best interest at heart always. I trust them implicitly. I know that I receive high quality treatment and great referrals if needed. Thank you so much, Hale and Hale!

Kelly T. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Dr. Brent for 17 years, not just because he is handsome and funny, but because he tells you the truth, doesn’t up-sell products to you, he has your well being ahead of his own and of course, because he is super knowledgeable and keeps up to date with current technology.  I’ve had everything from cleanings to root canals. I highly recommend them both!  Dr. Susan has filled in for Dr. Brent when needed and I love her as well for the same reasons.  You get a 2 for 1 deal!  Also, their staff and hygienists are amazing and very gentle, warm and kind

Anne Ling (Source: Facebook)


I have been going to this office for about 20 years now and my children are patients here too. The doctors, assistants, hygienists and office staff are just wonderful so I feel very comfortable recommending them to everyone I know. People think it’s unusual when I say I love going to the dentist! Not only do they take good care of my teeth but they are also helpful, kind, very knowledgeable and experienced. Highly recommend!

Gary F. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been seeing Dr. Susan Hale for about 20 years. Everything has always gone well. Her recommendations are just that – I’ve never felt pressured to have a procedure done – she offers the pros and cons and leaves the decision up to me. The entire staff is courteous and efficient. Any work she has done has held up with no complications involved. Highly recommend!

Judy F. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy being a patient of both Dr. Hales! Ada Lee is my long-time hygienist for at least 23 years and don’t know where I would be without this wonderful team! Their front office and all assistants are friendly and always helpful. Highly recommend!
