Dr. Hutchinson & her staff are AMAZING! I work for an ortho office that works closely with Dr. Hutchinson and when I needed to go see the dentist, I knew I’d have to go to their office! I’m fearful of the dentist and Dr. Hutchinson was so sweet and kind but I also loved how she was direct about what the game plan for treating my teeth. Gina was the assistant that worked on me and she was very kinda and gave great instruction. Audrey at the front desk was also extremely helpful, a total ray of sunshine! I love this office and their patient care process is very professional and still feels like they care about their patients. So thankful to have had the great experience and look forward to furthering treatment 🙂 Thank you ladies!!!

I had the pleasure of working with Dr Christina Hutchinson in Oklahoma, she is gentle, has excellent clinical skills, & provides honesty regarding her treatment recommendations to her patients. She was loved & missed by her patients & staff here! You would be happy to call yourself her patient or staff member!

Dr. Hutchinson is absolutely amazing. A true artist. She fixed some bonding gone wrong that I had from a previous dentist, and it looks better than I imagined. She’s professional and a great person.

Best dental cleaning ever. I felt like I had a thorough check and great explanations. I’m also wearing Invisalign and the dentist followed up with my ortho to check on a few things. Highly recommend!!

I was referred to this office by a friend when I was new to the area. I have been very satisfied by the dental care and atmosphere of Hutchison Dental. Dr. Hutchison and her staff are friendly, kind, down-to-earth, and take the time to explain things and answer questions. Additionally, administrative and billing issues are handled thoroughly and with professionalism. Plus, the physical location is beautiful!

I’ve been going to Dr. Hutchinson for 7 years or so, and I have to say, the best Dentist I’ve ever had. A very personal practice, as all her team members are just great! As far as Dr. Hutchinson’s skills and professionalism, it just doesn’t get any better. I’ve gone in for check ups and cleanings, to crowns and more complicated dental procedures, and all have been as good as they can be for being in a Dentist’s chair. Also, extra high marks for her at times going above and beyond what the traditional dentist would do. Like some other have said, if the system allowed more than 5 stars, she would get them!!!

I’ve been to Dr. Hutchinson twice. The first time was for a consult, cleaning and referral to an oral surgeon. This most recent visit was to settle up for the years I avoided regular visits to the dentist. I booked back to back appointments so I would only have to dread one morning. I had my cleaning and then 4 cavities filled (don’t judge me ). If you couldn’t already tell, I am not a fan of dentists or the dental experience. I do everything I can (including owning my own dental kit) to avoid regular visits. Turns out actually going to medical school makes a big difference in diagnostic skills. It also helps to be able to see inside the entire mouth. I really like this dentist, staff and office. This is the first time in my life that I’ve seen a hygienist twice in one year (she’s awesome!) and I intend to keep my next 6th month appointment. Dr. Hutchinson is a perfectionist when it comes to dental work. She is highly skilled, extremely knowledgeable and if that wasn’t enough, she’s also pretty funny. I laugh every time I’m in the chair which is a new experience for me. During my 4 fillings today, I felt zero pain and laughed. What more could you ask for?

M. B. from Malibu, CA (Source: Yelp)


BEYOND 5 stars ! I have had tons of fear issues with dentists so the fact that I am religious with my cleanings and appointments says SO MUCH for the professionalism / quality / kindness and CARE that a patient gets when encountering this amazing dental practice – Thank you SOOOOOO much ! You are all awesome !

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


Been going to this dentist for years, Hutchinson took over two years or so ago and she’s fantastic. Staying with her and her amazing staff because they care and work hard to keep me smiling with pearly white clean teeth! 🙂

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


Best Dentist and office staff!!! Thank you Dr Christina Hutchinson for being the most knowledgeable, thorough, gentle and patient caring Dentist! I appreciate everything that you and your staff do to accommodate your patients. I wish my insurance would pay for more teeth cleanings in a year because I would be in more often than only twice a year- and thank you for getting me in when I had a tooth ache recently! You are the best and I will definitely refer more friends and family to you!

Jack M. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been with Dr. Hutchinson for several years now. Total professional. Appointments always start on time, she explains everything, cares about your comfort, and does long-lasting & superb work.

How can i describe in these few words what an amazing find we have in Dr Christine Hutchinson! my daughter went from dentist to dentist for over 10 years with nice dentists that promised everything and delivered nothing but misery and shoty work. myself i don’t trust dentist any more from all the bad ones i have had in 50 years and my daughter’s bad luck with dentist. out of desperation of needing yet another dentist as my daughters implants where failing from previous dentists bad work, anyway we found her via YELP and she DOES WHAT SHE SAYS SHE WILL DO, she makes sure her patients are happy, she goes the extra mile for ALL HER PATIENTS! so i have lived for 63 years the ugliest teeth because no one could come up with an idea to fix them but even more important no other dentist i trust. but Dr Hutchinson always was there for my daughter and then for two years i have been asking for her ideas on my teeth, i told her i was to old at 63 to do braces and i wouldn’t tolerate the misery that braces bring as i am extremely sensitive in my mouth/teeth. finally it was time to take the plunge and put my teeth in her hands- i totally trust her! I have my temps in until Friday but they are the nicest look i have ever had, i have to learn to smile again! Friday i get my permanents and i know she will do whatever it takes to make sure all my sensitivities are addressed and i will walk out of her office with an amazing smile! just so you know how serious i am with trusting only her i drive 3-4hrs round trip for my visits! it’s not easy but SHE is worth it! do your teeth a favor and go talk to her to see how she can help, she DOESN’T PRICE GOUGE like other DDS she does her best to keep price down (not cheep, just not inflated) i could of had my much of my dental work covered if i had gone to in network dentist but it’s not worth the savings (even though money is tight for us right now) saving 6k just doesn’t cover the years of misery that is possible (just ask my daughter). Thank you Dr Hutchinson

As a new client in Dr. Hutchinson’s office, I have to say that I am very impressed. From the moment I entered her office, I noticed that her staff has been well trained, as everyone was very helpful and friendly, but still remained very professional. I was also very impressed with Dr. Hutchinson as a dentist, as she has a very professional demeanor, she performed a very thorough and thoughtful examination, and most of all, her report of findings made it clear that her dental knowledge is much greater than most dentists, as she explained my problem in a way that none of my prior dentists ever had. My problem is pretty severe, so Dr. Hutchinson referred me to a great periodontist, with whom she’s had follow up consultations regarding my treatment plan. So after she reviewed with me all of my options, we have agreed to a treatment plan and I feel very comfortable in moving forward with care that I’ve been afraid of and have put off for years. I will definitely encourage all of my family, as well as my coworkers and patients (I am a Chiropractor) to seek dental care with Dr. Hutchinson, as she clearly cares about her patients.

Dr. Hutchinson is indeed the finest dentist I’ve ever met and is simply incredibly talented as a dentist, very creative with cost effective treatments and most importantly, I trust her (and staff) more than any physician I’ve met over many years (67 y/o). She provides great professional referrals when appropriate and Dr. H is responsible for curing my sleep apnea!!! She is so high tech, absolutely on the cutting edge of everything in her realm and I drive 50 miles each way to see her for my dental needs. I highly recommend her to anyone seeking professional dental help and sleep apnea issues.

Vanessa R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am absolutely thrilled to have Dr. Hutchinson as my dentist. She is a true professional who cares about her patients. She did some bonding on my 4 front teeth which turned out ‘beautifully’!!! She is a true artist with the bonding cement. She is a perfectionist. On my recent orthodontist care I was not receiving adequate care and I asked Dr Hutchinson for a 2nd opinion. She immediately took pictures of my teeth and made a list of items left undone with my invisalign treatment. She become my personal advocate and spoke directly with the orthodontist on my behalf on a few occasions. This was not her responsibility, but she actually cares about her patients, even when the treatment is being done someplace else. I trust her entirely and give her and her staff the highest rating.

I was rather skeptical when I received a letter from Dr. Robert Murphy announcing his retirement from dental practice….but he couldn’t have found a more worthy and professional replacement than Dr. Christina Hutchinson! I could see from the start when I met her about 2 years ago that this gal knows her stuff and is familiar with all aspects of her profession. She will even take time to answer any questions and share dental trivia when she has the time. The hygenists (in my case Nichole) are equally as caring, as is the staff (Roxanne & Audrey). And for me, their office is an easy half mile walk from my house. So if you are looking for a better dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson!

Pavid K. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


SIMPLY THE BEST. Dr Hutchinson is not just a dentist, she is so well rounded and skilled in her knowledge. I have always been skeptical of dentists, but she really put me at ease. She takes the time to listen and explain you procedures, alternatives, etc. I was recommended to this office from my ENT. Our initial consult was to discus sleep apnea, and after a few appointments and trusting my health with her, she is now my #1 recommendation to friends and family. She is honest, smart, approachable and helpful. If I could give 10 stars I would. This is the type of dentist that even if you relocated to another city, you’d make the special trip to come back. I feel so grateful to have found her.

Michael K. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I needed a local dentist and I looked to yelp for help like we all do and I’m so pleased they introduced me to Dr. Hutchinson. Dr. Hutchinson and her team are extremely professional and knowledgeable. They were fast, friendly, and it was painless (pun intended). Thanks doc!

Nathan B. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first experience at Hutchinson Dental today and let me just say that it was hands down the best experience at a dentist that I have ever had. Started off with my first phone call to make the appointment and Audrey helped me set everything up hassle free to include contacting my insurance and getting all of my coverage information for me. I called on Monday and had an appointment for the following Tuesday morning. Upon arriving at Hutchinson Dental, I was able to meet Audrey face to face and she immediately took my paperwork and I was called back to the room in less than 5 minutes. Once in the room they took X-rays and Dr. Hutchinson was in the room within 30-minutes of me walking in the door. She talked me through the entire process, showing me all of my X-rays, and answered any of my questions with ease. Then Marie, took me back for my cleaning where she, just like the Dr., talked me through the entire process and was more than helpful with any concerns I had. The teeth cleaning was as painless as it could possibly be and Marie was great throughout the entire process. I knew that I had come to the right place and before leaving I scheduled my next two appointments. I highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson and her entire staff! Thank-you

Dr. Hutchinson is the best cosmetic dentist I’ve ever found & I’ve been to a lot! I will follow her anywhere – she doesn’t just have a great eye, but she works with you to make sure whatever she does you’re happy with. I’ve been with her for about four years and cannot say enough good things about her and her team.

Kevin K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Hutchinson and her team are the best you can find anywhere in the South Bay. Beth is the coolest and super helpful. Today my appointment was with Sabina who really cares/gives great tips for a better smile! 🙂

Michael G. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am extremely pleased with my visits to Dr. Hutchinson. Her experience in both Traditional and Cosmetic Dentistry are why I sourced her in the first place. I could tell right away in my initial visit that I wanted to be a patient of hers. She was thorough and strategic in determining my dental needs as well as aesthetic preferences. Appointments are easy to schedule and her staff from the receptionists to the hygienists are great. So far I have had full Check-Up & X-Rays, Cleaning, and 4 Porcelain Veneers. I was terrified of ending up with ‘slap-on-smile’ veneers that look big and fake and chunky like some dentists do. I am so impressed with the amount of detail that went into customizing the veneers, they look so natural and beautiful. I highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson for any type of dental work and am so grateful to have found a Top Dentist in South Bay.

Jared T. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hutchinson Dental was referred to me by a friend. Best dental office ever. Dr. Hutchinson explains everything beforehand and is extremely gentle. During procedures, she takes pride in her work, and renders painless work. If you are wavering about dentist work, don’t… Go see Dr. Hutchinson and her staff, and they will take care of you 100%

Tracy R. from Bristow, VA (Source: Yelp)


While visiting family in Long Beach from the east coast, my 7 year old son fell and broke off the bottom half of his front (permanent) tooth. My sister in law quickly called her dentist, Dr. Hutchinson. Grateful to get an immediate appointment and panicked about the state of my son’s mouth, I would have been happy with any old dental professional and did not expect anything close to the great pediatric dentist we have back home. Well, I have to say I was beyond thrilled with Dr. Hutchinson. She was very friendly, knowledgable, and most importantly kind and gentle with my very nervous child. She put him at ease and explained everything she was doing, and only began when he was comfortable. She x-rayed and photographed him, and reattached the broken part of the tooth. She took my email address so she could send those pics to share with out dentist back home. I highly recommend Dr. Hutchinson! If we lived in the area, we would definitely return as regular patients. Since we live 2,000 miles away, all I can do is write this review and hope others read it. Thank you, Dr. Hutchinson!!

I love Dr, Hutchinson !!!  I just returned from having my second crown.  My first crown was a horrible experience – it was with another dentist in Westchester.  Dr. Hutchinson’s crown looks better than my original tooth !  I love that Dr. Hutchinson is confident & calm & explains everything & has such a gentle touch !  No pain in her care !  I love her !!!
