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

Peter D. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a youth club basketball coach located in the Long Beach community and my wife and I were searching for a dental practice near the South Bay. We all needed check ups, cleanings and other work and my son needed braces. My family had just moved to Redondo Beach and we didn’t have a clue where to go. After researching and walking into local dental offices unsure of which practice to schedule, I remembered a very special father and son (the father was a dentist) that I had the pleasure of coaching, his name was Dr Tim Verny. I immediately contacted Dr Tim and took my family to his office. Since our 1st visit, Dr Tim and his staff of professionals at Hawthorne Dental have been magnificent. The practice is run in a highly professional manner in which everyone is made to feel comfortable with the many uncomfortable procedures one can encounter at the dentist. If you are unhappy with your current dental experience or need work on your teeth, I highly recommend bringing your family to see Dr Tim and his wonderful staff to Hawthorne Dental for any and all of your dental procedures…this is very special practice.

Hawthorne dental is an amazing office, Dr. Kim and Dr. Verny are both very patient with me and I really appreciate that. I highly recommend coming to this office. The staff is so sweet , and they treat you like family. I’ve been a patient here for 5 years and all of my family comes here that is how much I trust them. Since my first visit they were kind and professional and made me feel welcome. I’m so thankful I found this office. Thank you guys and keep up the good work!

Alex L. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best dentist experience I have ever had.  Dr Verny was recommended to me from a friend at work and even though I work in BH and live in the valley I drove the extra time to Hawthorne and it was worth every minute.  Maria performed a top notch cleaning and Dr Verny gave me two crowns and filled several cavities.  My recovery time was very fast and the work was done with confidence and all of my questions were answered.  I always felt like a priority and the front office was every friendly and best of all efficient!  If you want to feel good about your dentist experience, go here.  It’s worth checking out.

E. S. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are like me and dread going to the dentist due to the excrutiating pain; this is the place for you. After avoiding my regular franchise dentist due to pain that left me traumatized and in fear for the past 2 years, I decided that it was time for a deep cleaning. I actually had insurance but the pain of having the needle inserted for numbing kept me away. Well, this dentist took my needle insertion pain from a level 10 to a 3. He was extremely patient and kind. I knew my teeth were in bad shape due to deep cleaning neglect but unlike other places it wasn’t over exaggerated and I did not feel shamed. They were clear and honest. The dental hygienist that cleaned my teeth did the best deep cleaning and polishing that I have ever had performed. I nicknamed my doctor the “tooth whisperer” because of his needle insertion numbing technique that I am sure he has shared with his colleagues. Believe me when I say that this has been the best dental experience of my life. The receptionist are also very courteous and kind. “Sometimes you wanna go where everybody knows your name, and they are always glad you came”. This is the place! Yes, it is very clean.

Rebecca M. from Pico Rivera, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hawthorne Dental and Braces is the BEST! My daughter was so nervous about getting her Braces. Mary made her so comfortable by being very patient and explaining everything step by step.  Dr. Verny and Dr. Mian made me feel at ease by thoroughly explaining my daughter’s treatment plan and answering all my questions. I love this place. My daughter left with a smile and looking forward to her next visit.

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


I was looking for an orthodontist for my son’s braces. I found this place on the Internet and decided to check it out. So far the impressions are great! The staff was very friendly on the phone and during check in, and in the doctor’s consult. We new all along that my boy’s teeth need some serious straightening, but Dr Verny showed me on the X-ray exactly what the problems were and how to fix them. Best of all, the payment worked out for my budget! And the were able to start on the same day. Great job so far.

Irene T. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE my dentist! He’s very personable and great at putting me (who is very nervous about going to the dentist) at ease. I really trust him, and he’s maintained my teeth in great condition for the past 5 years. There is also an orthodontist in the office, and my daughter is currently getting her braces done there as well (very reasonable prices!). They also have an oral surgeon (my daughter needed a procedure done before her braces) and a gum specialist in this office, which is very convenient. I highly recommend Dr. Verny. Can’t say enough good things about him, and this is years after looking for a dentist. I’m so happy I finally found one that I love that I wanted to share it with you. The office staff is great too. They are super helpful and very friendly. Just a great experience overall

LaMont Julian W. from West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t be more satisfied with the quality of service provided to me by Hawthorne Dental. It’s my one stop shop for all my dental and orthodontic needs. The staff at Hawthorne Dental are always professional and courteous. It’s always a welcoming environment and they make you feel like you’re family. Hands down this is the best dentists and orthodontists in SoCal. The staff Lucy is the best. I would recommend Hawthorne dental to my family and friends and you know they must be exceptional  if I’ve taken the time out to write a review that describes their high level and quality of service. Thank you Hawthorne Dental for taking care of me. Overall, my experience at Hawthorne Dental has been a positive one and I would encourage anyone looking for a great place to handle all of their dental needs to give them a try…. You will not be disappointed! And by the way I drive from the valley, Sherman Oaks just to come here Hawthorne!

Ashley A. from Silver Spring, MD (Source: Yelp)


Where can I begin?! I found this place in April 2013 when shopping around for a good dentist that was convenient for me. When I came across Hawthorne Dental, I must admit that I was a bit apprehensive being that I was new to California and was unsure of the customer service. Once I made it inside, I was quickly put at ease! Before I can begin with the doctors, I must start with the front office. By far, they are the best group of people that I have dealt with since moving to CA! I do not know how they do it but they manage to know who I am by name before I even knew them! I do not mean by appointment, there have been a few times that I just popped in and regardless of who was at the front desk, they knew me by name. That means a lot to me. Along with the front desk, the staff is very patient and courteous. I tend to ask lots of questions since someone is doing work on my mouth. I even ask the same question a few times just for clarity. Even if one felt as if I was getting on their nerves, I would not even know it. My questions and concerns are addressed and I leave each time with full knowledge of my dental visit as well as what’s in store in the future. Professionalism is at its finest there. Have you ever been in a place where it is a bit surreal – thinking you’re at a friend’s or family member’s place? That’s how I feel when I go to Hawthorne Dental. You’re not treated as a patient. You’re treated as if you’re family. I like to talk so it feels good that the folks at Hawthorne Dental do not just care about teeth. They genuinely ask how you are doing or how your day is going. If I had one drawback, it would be the folks in the waiting area but who would say that’s an issue (this is really having to think or something “negative” but really is good to me)?! To me, it is assuring that Hawthorne Dental really knows what they are doing. The proof is in the pudding, folks. The amount of folks in the waiting area lets me know that I am getting the real deal and other folks are doing the same. To me, it seems as through the folks at Hawthorne Dental are meshed well. They all work together to ensure that I have the greatest care possible and share a good conversation and laughs along the way. I have had a great experience there and as long as I am in the SoCal area, Hawthorne Dental will be the place for me! I challenge anyone who reads this to give Hawthorne Dental a shot. You will not be disappointed!

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


I’m extremely satisfied with all my dental work done at Hawthorne Dental. Staff is very pleasant and accommodating, Dr.Verny is really knowledgeable and attentive, his work is precise, effective and quick, just like you want your dental procedures to be done. Other specialists are also top notch. I had a difficult extraction and a gum procedure with bone graft performed by Periodontist – excellent work compared to my previous experiences.

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


Me and my son had the pleasure of visiting Hawthorne Dental and braces today. The staff provided us with great customer service. I’m big on customer service. So kudos to them for being amazing. Hawthorne Dental and Braces is a clean establishment with lost of parking so don’t worry about that. We were 30 min late  and they were very kind and didn’t charge us a late fee. They have affordable braces and off a no interest payment plan  I think this is our new home.

Best dentist service my son got his braces and I did not have to pay any fee I don’t really have the money for this I heard of this place from a co worker it really is convenient I would recommend this for anybody if you don’t have the money this is the spot best dental service ever but I wish they would not have that long of a waiting time.

Lilly C. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Have been going to this dentist for a few years now. Really happy with him and the office. He’s a great dentist, really does terrific work. I’ve had numerous things done over the years: implants, crowns, fillings. All the work was done well and I’ve had no issues. The results are great and I’m very happy. I get compliments all the time on my smile :). My two younger sisters are getting their braces done at this office too. The orthodontist is great! I can’t wait for them to take their braces off and see the results. I can already tell that it’ll be great! I recommend this office to anyone looking for a new dentist or orthodontist.

Jenny G. from Crystal City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dental office the Dr.’s are awesome. Always get my work done with Dr. Verny he is nice and gentle has a good hand you can’t even feel when he is working on you. Have also gotten cleanings from Dr. Kim he is great and funny nice person to talk to. Highly recommend this dental office staff is welcoming and lobby is always clean. They also have a cute little section for kids. Would definitely be bringing my kids and family members to this dental office.

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


Customer service is extraordinary. Everyone is very friendly. I’ve been coming to this dentist, since I can remember. I started with just doing my regular cleanings to starting my braces treatment. Totally worth it. Until, this day I still come here for my regular cleanings and anything else that may come up. I’ve even referred others to come to this dentist and they’ve been satisfied themselves. I personally am satisfied with all of my dental work. Dr. Verny does an outstanding job. Maria and Lucy are the best. Thank you to all the doctors and staff!

Lizbėth Maríę (Source: Facebook)


I went there for the first time last Tuesday just for a consultation. The personnel was so nice, attentive, and knowledgeable. I decided to get my braces done right then and there. I got an appointment for the Friday after that and they did an amazing job. I also referred a co-worker and she’s really happy with them as well!

Marcus N. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hawthorne Dental has been my dentistry for over 10 years. Very polite and courteous front desk staff. Dental hygienists who are very knowledgeable, respectful and display true professionalism. The dentists and orthodontists are very skillful in their respective field with good “bedside” manners. They explained course of treatment in a way that is very comprehensible and conveyed in a way without undue pressure. I am very comfortable and contented with this group and would recommend without reservations.

Tom Freeman (Source: Google)


Going to the dentist is never fun. I had huge Anxiety and these guys were excellent! Doctor Tim rocks! I’ve never been happier with my dental work. They made me feel comfortable and I had a major procedure done. My procedures were a lot of money and they were able to arrange financing that I could afford. Worth 5 stars.

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


So, I’m afraid of dental procedures​, usually;  so much​ so that I’ve avoided returning to dentists unless I was​ experiencing​​ tooth pain. Such was the case when I came in for my first​ appointment with Dr. Verny at Hawthorne Dental and Braces.  My gums were seriously infected and I’ve had severe bone loss due to years of poor oral hygene and drug abuse (I’m sober 11 years and counting, to​ date). Dr. Verny and his staff take VERY good care of me as well as my teeth and gums. I feel very comfortable and safe in their hands, which hadn’t​ been the case in the past. He’s laid out an awesome plan of action for conquering​​ my oral infection, and even within the very first visit (involving scaling, planing and deep cleaning), my gum bleeding has already stopped and in a few days I’m returning for gum surgery to heal the infection and start the process of implants! I’m totally satisfied with the service at Hawthorne Dental and Braces and recommend it to everyone, and especially those of us with a fear of dental procedures​.  Dr. Verny and his staff are compassionate, friendly and thorough​, and I​ appreciate​ them all so much! OH- and Dr. Verny’s staff also helped me secure credit funding for my procedures​, so I’m​ SUPER excited that I am actually getting this mission​ accomplished! Believe​ it or not, my trips to this dentist are now actually pleasant​ experiences! Weird, huh? GO SEE THEM!  You won’t​ regret it and your teeth & health will thank you! Michelle

Dr. Vermy is such a nice dentist but the finance manager whom I don’t know the name of has one of the nastiest attitudes I’ve ever encountered. She has no manners on how to treat new patients, thanks to her rudeness I seeked treatment elsewhere. Dr. Vermy shall put a stop to this so other patients don’t run away from this place.

Ashley B. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband has been going to Dr. Verny for years and has amazing things to say about him. I just got a cleaning by the dental hygienist Maria and Dr. Verny fixed my chipped tooth in less then 5 minutes and looks great! All the staff were so friendly and helpful, the office was very clean and updated, I couldn’t be more happy with my visit and would definitely recommend Dr. Verny to all my friends and family.

Adriana R. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Definitely recommend going to this dental ! So far the best and most organized and very punctual with your appointments ! I’ve recently had an aunt who was in pain because her molar was hurting and lived an hour away, we called in and they attended her immediately. They will also fit prices with you, inexpensive compared to other dentals around your community.

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


Been a patient For almost 5 years in Hawthorne Dental and I absolutely Love it . Before I knew about Hawthorne Dental , I was pretty scared when it came dental offices and everywhere I would go it would be expensive until I came to Hawthorne dental . They have the best service ,you don’t have to wait for more than 30 min in their lobby room and their staff members are really nice . Also they have the best orthodontist you can ever have . The orthodontist did and still doing an amazing job in my teeth & couldn’t ask for a better treatment. Also the most important thing about Hawthorne dental is that the staff members treat like family but mostly with care & respect. One more thing if you ever meet Lucy ….she is the best at doing her job , if you have any concerns or you need help she is the best person to go to & she will help you a lot like seriously a lot so pls you guys check it out . Best dental office in the South Bay Area.

I love the service here. I would recommend this dental office to everyone. Everyone is nice and they do the job very well. I’ve been here since I was a child, my sister and both had our braces done here and we are very happy with the results!! The staff is very friendly and make you feel comfortable coming here. I recently moved to Ontario but continue to come here for all my dental needs. Thank you to all the members of the Hawthorne Dental team!! Keep up the good work!

Allen P. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I think every one who ever has problem with his teeth can understand me. During last three years I went from one dental office to another for help with my dental problem as a result of car axcident.I’ve got one surgery after another. Finally my ex coworker recommended me Hawthorn dental. It is a little far away  from my place but I decided to go. Now,when every thing finally ended, I can say my hope was reworded. Dr. Verny and all his staff was very attentive, respectful .  My 6 implants stay firmly and I successfully got rid  of temporary denture. Alan. Woodland hills.

Jason Z. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Found this AMAZING dental place through yelp the exact day when my back 2 teeth started to hurt. I called immediately (same day) and had an appointment the next morning with Dr. Verny. Very friendly and knowledgeable Dr. Verny asked me a series of questions that I answered which were followed by comforting remarks of why this may be occurring. “Hot Tooth” was the issue and within minutes Dr. Verny knew what needed to be done and was already working with his wonderful/amazing staff to take care of 2 root canals ASAP. I was scared/nervous/in pain but again Dr. Verny calmed me and took me step by step of what was to happen in the next few visits. I have never been happier with a dentist the way I am with this wonderful dentistry. I am glad to say that Doctor Verny and Team at Hawthorne Dental made my pain go away instantly and gave me a reason to not be afraid of the Dentist Office. Love this place and Dr. Verny!!! IM PAIN FREE!

Karen B. from Lomita, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff here is amazing! Always friendly, well organized and willing to work with us on scheduling and making sure my son’s visit goes smoothly. And they’re always doing fun things in the office to celebrate birthdays and holidays which makes the frequent visits and waits more enjoyable. The surgeons here are also great. My son had teeth extracted and they are exceptionally professional and compassionate. I’d recommend Hawthorne Dental & Braces to anyone whose kids need to go through braces. They make a scary and painful experience a pleasure!

Kathy L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr Verny for about 5 years now. He’s a wonderful dentist and person. I really neglected my teeth early on and started having problems later, but then I was really afraid of going to the dentist. Dr Verny really made me at ease and the way he gives shots is so painless! I can’t feel the needle at all. I can tell that he genuinely cares for his patients. My daughter recently got braces in this office as well. Wonderful experience. The staff couldn’t be nicer to her and she loves coming in for her regular visits.

Carmen G. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a tooth  shipped on Saturday. I left a voicemail and also emailed the office. Monday morning first thing when the office opened they called me. The staff were very friendly and happy to see me. They were very accommodating. Lucy was very empathetic and spoke with me about the insurance and financial options. Dr. Verny was exceptional. Always nice and professional. My tooth was fixed , no pain , no fuzz . I’ve been coming to Dr. Verny for over 16 years . He is the best . Thank you.

Jacklyn G. from Harrison, NJ (Source: Yelp)


Love them. Like family.  Ive had my braces for about 1 year and 3 months.  this review is way overdue.  This was my 3rd consultation for braces, and by far the best visit.  I expressed to Dr. Verny that I’ve always wanted braces since I was a teen, but never could afford them.  We talked, came up with a payment plan that was suitable, and literally got me in the next day to get started, installed my brackets! It was a push for me to do it, and I’m so glad I did.  Every visit has been awesome. It’s like family. They have always accommodated on my appointments or cancelations. Every one is so friendly and nice, and always greets me by name when I walk in.   They even recognize my voice over the phone when i call. All my adjustments are pretty quick.  In and out.  There’s no waiting in the waiting area for your appointment.  I can go on my lunch break, get seen, adjusted, and out the door, back at work within an hour.  I did both my dental and ortho work here. I highly recommend hawthorne dental for all your dental needs.  I Love love them!!!!! If I can give it extra stars for rating I gladly would. Lucy and Maria are my faves.

Jonathan C. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m sitting in the chair at Hawthorne dental right now just got fitted for my crown and Dr Verny  no pain today, I really call it the place that is really has sensitivity when it comes to your comfort when doing the many procedures to give you that beautiful smile.. I have been coming to Hawthorne Dental for the past I don’t know 10 years or so, The staff is professional and courteous, I have also sent other to this office because they work with you to insure you get the best care possible both in billing and services rendered. I hate pain and I am sure you do too that’s if your a normal person, So I say that to say this nothing is pain free but Dr Verny has on many occasions minimized it to the best of his abilities that I no longer mind get work done at this office….Thanks to all the staff and especially those behind the scenes that make it all happen like clock work….Please call them you’ll find everyone is polite,  pleasant and professional and willing to go that extra mile for you… and tell them I sent you.

V. S. from Tarzana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very very pleased! A lot lower price than 3 other places I have visited and a lot nicer people. Doctor Tim is like a magician. He did 2 root canals and I didn’t feel any pain. Doctor Tim called me in the evening at home to see how I felt after. When I later came back for a crown fitting, I only had to wait 5 minutes before being taken in to see the doctor. Also the office is super clean and all equipment looks like new. I notice these things because I am paranoid about cleanness and I felt really comfortable there. My friend recommended Dr. Tim to me and told me that when he called Dr. Tim during the long weekend because he was in pain, Dr. Tim came from home to open the office and help him.  Most people are afraid to go to the dentist, but after my experience with Doctor Tim my dental phobia is gone.

Efrain M. from Willmore City, CA (Source: Yelp)


‼‼‼‼If you want to know how they treat their clients, read this.‼‼‼‼ First off, this office changed my life in April of 2010 when I started my orthodontic procedure (braces). I was never confident with my smile until after this event in my life. I want EVERYONE to know of my most recent experience with Dr. Verny’s office. It’s in a great location (Marine and Hawthorne, next to the Jacks). The front desk staff are always nice, helpful, and informative. Upon walking in, you’re always greeted with a friendly voice and smile. They work well with my insurance and will assist you in acquiring  financing if needed. This office is a one stop shop. They can help you with braces, implants, and cosmetic procedures. They have several doctors, Dr. Verny, Dr. Kim, and Dr. Talia, specializing in different fields to be more effective. Dr. Verny will sit down with you and talk about your custom procedure. He will show you your X-rays, point at problems, and let you know the best way to go about it. If he is not sure on a specific, he will get a second opinion and have one of his specialists take a look. After my orthodontic procedure, I strayed from my path and precluded the care for my teeth. As a result, I developed numerous cavities and fractured 2 teeth. This called for an extensive procedure, crafted to my needs. It included several root canals, crowns, tooth extractions, and implants. I am close to being done, and am pleased to report that I felt NO pain whatsoever. This is VERY important to many, especially to me. My siblings also had procedures to address their needs and  are also receiving orthodontic treatment. They are happy, and are frequently inquiring me as to when their next appointment is.


Edgar C. from Central LA, West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good positive things about Dr. Timothy V. and his staff, specially Maritza in the front desk. She is professional, yet personable and really shows care about my health and happiness. Working with Dr. Timothy and his staff is always a pleasant experience. They are great about working with my busy schedule and follow up with sincerity and thoughtfulness after my procedures. I greatly recommend working with Dr. Timothy v. And staff. Thank you all!
