I enjoy coming here for my regular appointments and check-ups. Dr. Doostan and the staff were friendly, easy to talk with, and attentive. Whenever I came to them with a problem, they were so responsive in developing a treatment plan and helping me resolve it. I kept up a beautiful, healthy smile thanks to them. So happy with my dentist!

Spencer K. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was glad to find this Dentist, as I recently moved here and have been looking for one. The staff were friendly and Dr. Doostan was knowledgeable and helpful. When I went for a cleaning it was quick and simple, and they did not try to convince me to have any work done I didn’t need. They have a computer monitor in front of the chair so that the patient can see their X-ray and imaging results. This is the first dentist that I have been to that does this, and I liked being able to see what they were talking about when discussing my teeth.

I was very impressed with this Dental office.  The receptionist was very nice and I was seen very quickly by the Dentist who was very professional.  The hygienist was very passionate about her work and completed a very thorough basic cleaning.  Her advise was genuine and is being followed today.

Diane F. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Having a severe abscess on a Sunday, this Dentist answered his cell phone for emergencies and gave me the first appt. on a Monday. This is the best dentist I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. He is professional, highly experienced with the kind manners and gentle touch.  After this episode a year later, same thing, different tooth. WOW, I have never been so happy to know this office. Skilled in all aspects. Up to date ex-rays and planning for my Healthy Smile. What would I have done without your expertise? Thank you dear dentists and staff. You are truely the best dentistry ever. Go to this office and you will be treated well!!

Can you say Sweet? Bought a groupon and went in for xrays and cleaning. Knew I needed some other stuff done. Reception was very friendly…and made me feel very comfortable. I told them I hate going to the dentist and they went out of their way to make me feel at ease. I had deep cleaning and then Dr. Afshin Doostan, came to check on my teeth. He was very sweet and gentle during the check up.  I will be back in two weeks for some minor dental work and give you a better update. I feel good about this place and about the Doc:)

Wow! I think I have found an honest dentist! I used to go to Western Dental bc that was the designated company for my insurance. Every time I went in for a cleaning they said I had a cavity. I would go in 6 months later and I would need another filling!  They last time they did the filling they chipped my tooth and still made me pay for it! I came in to Healthy Smiles and had my teeth polished and cleaned. The staff did a great job! And victory– No false/over diagnosis of cavities!  They also don’t take a million pictures for xrays and they have a digital camera they use as well. I have never seen that. Found that to be pretty neat. Dr Doostan and another dr cleaned my teeth. Dr. Doostan remembered that I rescheduled last week because my grandmother had to go to the hospital and asked how she was doing. I was very touched and impressed that he remembered. The cleaning went smoothly and the entire process was pleasant. Thank you Healthy Smiles!

Hands down the best dental experience I have ever had. Ever. Do you know of any other practice that would fill a cavity discovered during a procedure for free simply because it was in the same area? Likely not. Not only did they take care of one of my cavities free of charge, but they also refunded my groupon when they found out my insurance covered me — adding the value of the groupon toward my out of pocket expense before billing my insurance. Additionally, I came in for my appointment at 9am and discovered my appointment wasn’t until 4:30 and they took care of me…on the spot… No questions asked. Nt sure where the error was, but they treated the situation like there wasn’t an error to begin with. These guys really know their customer service and that is KEY! Both dental assistants were so nice and welcoming, and the practitioners themselves were informative, professional and above all — gentle. I’m usually the kind of person that clings to the arm rest on the seat, but this was so ridiculously painless and easy I couldn’t believe it. Come to this place if you’re seeking an amazing dentist — really, you won’t regret it. I’m not the kind of person to write a review on this kind of service, but damn….they’re really that good! The building itself is a little sore on the eyes and some of the equipment inside looked a tad bit dates (shout out to the televisions in the patient area that looked like they were from the 90’s!) but I could really care less. Nice people, great service, fantastic dentists. Highly recommend.

When I go to a dentist I want to treated with kindness and respect and I want the staff and dentist to be professional and courteous.  Healthy Smiles delivers on all accounts.   Last week I had a cap fall off of a back tooth and I was in some discomfort.  I called the office and they took me right in, as in drive here now, and fixed the problem.  It turned out that the tooth needed to be removed.  It was a long appointment but I received wonderful care. Thank you Dr. Doostan and staff.

Trixi M. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


What an amazing find! The service is great, all staff super-friendly, the cost is very fair and the wait time traditionally under 5-10 minutes. Dr. Doostan is very skilled, truly cares about his patients and I much appreciate his calm and relaxed personality. He won’t ‘push’ any procedure on you as so often happens in other dental offices who care mainly about their revenue – a refreshing concept… 😉 I have been telling pretty much every one I know about this dental office and if I could give 6 stars – I would! 🙂

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


Dr. Doostan did a terrific job with my daughter’s teeth. He was very patient and gentle. She has been traumatized with so many bad experiences with other dentists. So when we found out my daughter had to get her molars replaced we were worried. However, Dr. Doonstan got all of this done in one visit without a problem. We will be coming here from now on.

Tom M. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a new patient of Dr. Doostan. I had purchased a Living Social voucher for cleaning and x-rays. In addition to the x-rays, they took pictures of all my teeth. Dr. Doostan reviewed them with me and told me what work I needed. The team there is very thorough and professional. They helped me to obtain a Care Credit Card to pay for the costs over time since I’m retired an no longer have dental insurance to cover the cost of two crowns and three fillings. He is going to be my new regular dentist from now on. I would recommend him to anyone.

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


I found this office on Groupon. I was skeptical since I bought an exam/whitening package & fully expected them to try to get more money out of me. BUT THEY DIDN’T. The office was clean, neat. I only waited for about 10 minutes before I got called back. The office staff & dentist were very polite. They have a newer x-ray system that puts the pictures directly on the computer screen in front of you which was fast & pretty cool. They did a very thorough cleaning on me & when I was getting my teeth whitened, they put on a movie for me so I could relax in the chair. I will definitely be going back to this office.

Roxy H. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


i went to Healthy Smile with a LivingSocial deal for an exam and cleaning. i had a very short wait and was treated in a very polite and friendly way. Dr.Doostan’s assistant, the hygenist, and Dr. Doostan  himself were all very professional and took the time to explain what needed to be done and why.  Very pleasant experience.

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


Definitely highly recommend Dr. Doostan and his colleague. What a great and friendly office. I personally always was and still am scared of dentistry; but Dr. Doostan and his group made my visits as smooth as possible. He’s a very knowledgeable, genuine guys. If you’re looking for an honest dentist with dignity, bedside manner and knowledgeable, he and his group are the one you want them to take care of your dentistry needs.

Katie N. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have made it 30 years with ZERO cavities, and Dr. Doostan is the only dentist I will let anywhere near my teeth.  I came here initially on a groupon right when I moved to the area, and have been so grateful for the amazing referral through them! He is now my dentist for life.  From quick and easy cleanings to a fresh coat of sealant to keep my choppers intact, Healthy Smiles is the place to go.  I had a dreadful accident where I hit myself in the hammer from recoil (home improvement accident) on a holiday weekend and called and left a panicked voicemail at the office.  Dr. Doostan called me from home to make sure I was alright and offer to come in at his earliest and treat me! He is so kind, genuine, and honest…I would (and have) recommended him to everyone I talk to.  His staff is also SUPER-friendly, helpful, and kind and I actually enjoy talking with them when I come in.  I mean, really, who looks forward to the dentist? But I truly do 🙂

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


I’ve been going here for awhile now. There is parking in the back or on the street. Everybody from Dr. Doostan to the assistant to the receptionist are friendly. They give me a pretty good rate for my check up, x-rays, and cleaning considering I don’t have any insurance. I’m lucky I don’t have any cavities because I know that would cost a lot more…though I’m sure Dr. Doostan would give me a good rate if one ever pops up. It’s always easy to schedule a convenient appointment. The wait time is usually short. I went today for a usual checkup and I waited about two minutes until they called me in. The whole appointment lasted about thirty minutes. I love their x-ray technology where you can see the x-rays uploaded to the screen in front of you right after they are taken. They did a thorough cleaning and it felt good after wards. Two years ago I got my wisdom teeth extracted here and they did a great job with that as well. The procedure went smoothly and it didn’t hurt at all…except after when the meds wore off, but that is normal. I would definitely recommend this dentist.

Soheil S. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My fiancé and I came to the Doostan’s office on June 2013. The experience was fantastic. I am very picky on teeth and I believe my teeth are my greatest assets on my face. The last time that I visited a dentist was 2 years ago for a regular clean up. Since my fiancé is quite scared from dentists and their work I went for the clean up first. She followed me to the office and the nurse came and did an X-ray on my teeth. Later the nurse showed me a cartoon until the Dr. came and visited me. He explained in very detail of every tooth and we decided to go forward with the regular cleaning. He was so very nice to do a deep cleaning on the house and without any charge. My fiancé was very satisfied with the experience that she had a cleaning the next week. The Dr. saw a few cavities that had to be filled (2 on the right-up and down, and 1 on the top left). The Dr. was so generous that when he find out that we are going to be getting married soon, he charged us as if we had dental insurance (very low price). The Dr.s were very professional, on time, clean, nice and fun to talk to. I would definitely go there in 6 months to get my teeth cleaned again. Thanks guys you are the best 🙂

Nick C. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dental office. I have been coming for dental work at this location for the last year or so and I have no complaints. The staff are lovely and the dentist are very knowledgeable.  I would recommend this dental office for the whole family.  They do great teeth cleaning especially if you get Deborah (she really gets in there). Lol.

I recently moved and needed to change my dentist. My previous doctor was awesome, and I wasn’t going to settle for someone less than that. My search finally came to end when I visited Dr. Doostan. His office was in great condition and definitely made me comfortable. He took his time with the exam and cleaning, addressing every problem. I can adjust to my new home better knowing I have a great doctor around

Rachel D. from Fenton, MO (Source: Yelp)


I lost my dental insurance when I moved to LA and needed an xray for a crown that was bothering me and a cleaning/check up. I found Healthy Smiles on GroupOn, $19 for an xray, general exam and cleaning. I couldn’t pass that up, so  I drove from Santa Monica to check it out. The overall aesthetics are a little dated, but that is probably my one and only critique. The receptionist could not have been more friendly and personable. Made me feel extremely comfortable right from the get-go. The hygienist who took me back was also very sweet, attentive and informative. Dr. Doostan was very thorough and took his time with me explaining the prices of the procedure I needed done and offered me several options in regards to payment/payments plans as it a very expensive procedure. I would absolutely recommend checking them out for an affordable check up and an overall accommodating and comfortable experience.

Eva V. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was seen as a new patient yesterday and I have to say I was very pleased with my visit/experience overall. As soon as I walked in I was greeted by staff. I have to admit I was nervous since I hadn’t been to a dentist in quite some time. Evelyn who is Dr. Dootson’s assistant worked me up and prepped everything accordingly for Dr. Dootson. She was very efficient yet kind at the same time which I really appreciated. (Evelyn definitely knows what she’s doing) My exam proceeded after and Dr. Dootson was very professional. Once finished I checked out with Heather who scheduled my next appointment. (She was awesome in explaining insurance information and breakdowns) Looking forward to seeing them again!

DeAna A. from Lomita, CA (Source: Yelp)


My boyfriend went here after buying a Groupon and could not have been more impressed!!   He sadly hadn’t been to the dentist in years due to his fear but they took great care of him!   The team there is totally professional and very friendly.  It was completely painless and very hi-tech.   I’m so happy to say that he will be back every 6 months as recommended.

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


Today was my first appointment and I got to this dental practice due to one of my dearest friends – soul sister – priceless referral, as her whole family are patients there (her teenage girls since childhood) claiming Dr. Doostan has “angel hands”. Now I know why. They are kind, honest, truly caring and clearly excellent professionals. I was impressed by everything: technology, personable staff, service, great hygiene… Heather is so efficient & helpful, so is sweet Evelyn. Dr. Sam, how amazing, he made my heart smile. Dr. Doostan, indeed a gifted doctor. Their willingness in working with me to accommodate my financial needs was superb and definitely a soothing element in my overall experience. I am so truly grateful to have found them!!!! All dental practices should be like this. Worth the hr drive!!

Shirley C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


BEST DENTIST EVER – DR. DOOSTAN! Heather, the receptionist is so personal..really feels more like a family, than dental office. I made a dental appt for a different office thru my insurance in september, was given a december date. To my surprise, the first appt. is only preliminary, then they schedule a cleaning for another month and a half away. My gums were sore and bleeding, so I went to another office for an appt. was given 1 for 3 weeks away. After exam/xrays, was determine need deep cleaning and because 20 years ago, I used to be premedicated for heart problem, said needed doctors release to perform without. I asked could I get just regular cleaning, they said no, is only really polish, can’t do without deep cleaning. Desperate, I called Healthy Smiles where I went a year prior. Was told could come in following day! Quoted me a discount rate, based upon our history/relationship. They are not the place assigned to by my insurance, but this rate is great. Meanwhile, I found a groupon for $19, even more affordable, so purchased. But when I called Heather she said groupon only good for 1st time patients, and since I already used one, groupon should not have let me buy another, I should ask for refund. Upon asking, she agreed to just deduct the price I paid from their original discounted rate for me, to avoid the hassle of getting a refund. After Dr. Doostan took partial xrays/exam, determined no cavities, but said need deep cleaning and quoted me a discount rate for that, but quite more than what came in for. He did not try to force but based on medical expertise and bone loss, I knew this was necessary, I use to get them quite often. However, unlike the other dental office, he could still give me a regular cleaning..which in fact was very good…and got rid of a lot of tartar buildup and brought relief. Then I discovered my insurance would cover basic cleaning at this location, so it would actually be free instead of even the discounted rate. When Heather asked the dentist what to do about the groupon I purchased she was going to apply to my bill…he simply said “I’ll just refund that to her.” Just as sweet and kind, with no complications, he uttered those words, to my great surprise, So, as I checked out, indeed Heather handed me a check for the amount I paid for my groupon!!!!!!@!! Amazing!!!! While so many try to talk you into services, go by the book/contract, etc. he went beyond normal business practices. Though he is running a business, it is indeed more than a business to him…and he actually cares for his patients! IF YOU NEED TO GO TO A DENTIST GO HERE AND RELAX!

After avoiding the dentist for over 15 years, I was afraid of what the consequences of many years of neglect would entail. However, my concerns and anxiety were soon allayed as Dr. Doostan patiently and thoroughly  explained the work needed to bring my oral faculties back to par. He is fair, honest, and not one to push unnecessary or extraneous procedures. Most importantly, he has a personable demeanor and is never condescending- traits that extend to his staff. I’ve been seeing Dr. Doostan for 3 years since, and plan on staying on despite a 20 mile commute. Highly recommended!

Amanda D. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really appreciate doctors who explain what they’re doing and why they’re doing it. Entire staff was very accommodating, professional, and warm. They made suggestions without being pushy and I felt their treatment plan was very reasonable. They gave me options, told me realistically what could be put off and what should be done sooner, and their prices were very fair. They didn’t leave me waiting, told me exactly how long everything would take and made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I really prefer these types of practices over fancy offices that charge you more for everything just to keep up with the overhead. I will definitely be back.

Courtney M. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was the first time visiting a dentist other than my childhood dentist. It was an amazing and comfortable experience. From check-in to leaving the office,  the staff made me feel very relaxed. I initially went in for just an exam, xrays, and a cleaning but ended up needing to get several cavities filled. They explained everything to me and even showed me pictures of how bad some of the cavities were. Throughout the process,  Dr. Doostan and his assistant made sure I was comfortable (she even held my hand as Dr. Doostan numbed my mouth). Overall,  I had a wonderful experience, even though I ended up needing more work done than I initially had thought. I would recommended this office to all my friends and family.

Kelli M. from Lomita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough about this dental practice. I have been going to this dentist for about 5 years. They are truly amazing. From Heather, the incredibly friendly receptionist, who is always willing to help with questions and billing to Doctor Doostan, who is so great and takes the nervousness out of seeing the dentist. My 15 year old son doesn’t even mind gong, which in itself is amazing.. I have referred a few people, including my daughter for my grandson, and everyone was very thankful with the service they received.  When you are looking for a family dentist, I would highly recommend Healthy Smiles in Lawndale. You won’t regret it.

Amanda Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just left the Glendale office. I’m very very happy with everything. I purchased a very inexpensive Groupon for a cleaning expecting to have to say no thank you 100 times to more expensive treatments but that didn’t happen at all. Dr. Afshin was pleasant and professional. Dentist work is scary for many people including me and I felt very comfortable here. He was gentle and sweet and the staff was very friendly. I’ll be back in May! Thanks for everything.

Kayla B. from San Pedro, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Don’t let the aesthetics of this place fool you. All of the staff were warm and welcoming. I had called this morning and was able to come in this afternoon to fix my permanent retainer that had come loose on one side. The hygienist was sweet and thorough, and the dentist gave me multiple options for my retainer. He ended up bonding it back in place and added extra support. I’m going back next week to have my teeth whitened. Overall great experience and affordable prices for those who don’t have insurance.

Candace W. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Doostan for a couple years now. He has always done the best work for us!  Even in emergencies, the office will squeeze us in there with no problem!  The ladies in the office could not be sweeter, and they really work with you to get everything you need done at a price you can afford.  After a pulled wisdom, Dr. Doostan actually called me himself later that night to check on me and make sure I was still doing okay.  Could not recommend this office more!!

Noo T. from Hidden Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


My visit to Dr. Doostan’s office was very smooth.  He did two fillings with laser, which I did not feel any pain.  He did not even numb me, so no needles.  I did not hear any drills in my mouth!!   Very gentle and caring from the beginning to the end.  And the price was very reasonable.  Since I am a very fearful person, I’ve looked around and compared prices about laser in dentistry and Dr. Doostan’s office offered me the best and most reasonable price for the laser work done on my teeth.

Ameena J. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


A 19-dollar Groupon lead me to Healthy Smiles Premier Dental.  Heather, who provided a positive first impression when I called to schedule an appointment, was congenial, sympathetic, and encouraging.  Evelyn, who was helpful, attentive, and amicable, took the dental x-rays, and showed them to me onscreen with state-of-the-art technology, in the comfort of the dental chair.  These x-rays provided a handy reference when Dr Sam, who was friendly, patient, and considerate, thoroughly explained preventive and optional dental care.  Dr Doostan, who was polite, courteous, and conscientious, provided an outstandingly thorough teeth cleaning, which successfully removed most of the stains from my teeth.  The only reason that he could not remove all of them, he explained, was that the irremovable ones had reached the dentine.  The quality of his work was excellent, and he was generous with his effort and time.  Many thanks go to him and his staff for the exceptional care and service

Sarah S. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff was so nice from front desk to doctor!  I got the Groupon because I do not have dental insurance so I thought I would try it out for super cheap.  They were willing to work with me financially because I have to pay cash.  My experience was so wonderful that they will be my primary dentist!

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


I love Dr. Doostan and his staff.  I have been going to him for over 10 years.  He is very professional and courteous. His staff is also very accommodating.  I lost my dental insurance in 2013 when I lost my job, and since I have been a patient for so long, he gives me discounts here and there.
