Sometimes you find a real gem that you can’t wait to share with your friends and family — Dr. Hamel and his staff are one of theses gems that I have shared many times. I’m usually pretty hesitant to go to the dentist, but the feeling at this dentist office is so relaxed and easy going — a lost touch nowadays. I’m not interested in gimmicks and tricks when dealing with my teeth — I’m more interested in skill and knowledge — something Dr. Hamel and has his team prove every time. I recommend them very much.

Let’s be honest no one likes to go to the dentist. Dr. Hamel is without a doubt the best dentist I’ve ever been to. He’s a funny guy and he makes it easy. Not to mention his prices were very reasonable. Staff is very professional and they get you in and out, without you feeling processed!… I am glad I went with him as I don’t have insurance. Heck of a nice guy too!

I know I am somewhat prejudiced being Dr. Hamel’s sister, but, Ian is a great Dentist and helps me at the drop of a hat, never chides me, well chides me a little but all in fun. I know he is very professional,kind, through, and respectful to his patients and does great work! Also I have heard him on action may times. You will be very happy to go to Dr. Ian Hamel DDS for your dental needs. Halcyon Hamel

Admittedly, Ian Hamel, DDS is my uncle. He’s also a brilliant dentist. Dr. Hamel has been my dentist since birth and has dealt with some my most unfortunate dental accidents – like the time in 2nd grade that a boy on the monkey bars kicked me in the mouth and chipped my newly acquired front tooth. Even though I was sobbing incessantly before getting to Dr. Hamel’s office, as soon as I sat in the chair, Uncle Ian and his staff calmed me into sweet submission. The tough procedure of repairing my heavily chipped tooth didn’t bother me in the least since Dr. Hamel and the hygenists are so funny and nice:) In the 6th grade, I saw an orthodonist for braces who remarked that the repair of my chipped front tooth was the “most skillful he had ever seen.” Since I’ve moved out of the area for school, I’ve seen other dentists out of necessity. EVERY ONE of them has complemented the filling on my front tooth and they all were impressed the the sealing procedure that Dr. Hamel had done to my teeth as a little girl (to prevent cavities). To that effect, I’ve only ever had ONE cavity – and only Dr. Hamel caught it. My other dentist didn’t see it show up on an XRay, so I drove 300 miles home to get my uncle to fix it. Thank God. Go see him.

I don’t know anyone who likes the dentist, most people say it is ok or are completely terrified. Unlike getting a haircut, which I love and some people are terrified of a communal fear of the dentist seems to be natural to the human race. With that said, Dr Hamel is pretty great, tall guy, deep voice, friendly, firm hand shake. He is very thorough, quick and professional. He will tell you what is wrong, if anything, what you need, if anything and how to fix it, if it needs fixin’. I have been to other dentists who want to do everything under the sun to make some money, Dr. Hamel does what is necessary and let’s you know why as well. As long as I live in Burbank or relatively close by I will continue going to Dr. Hamel. Thanks again YELP! another amazing recommendation!

After a HORRIBLE experience with a different dental office when I first moved to Burbank, I was desperate to find someone I could trust. I found that person in Dr. Hamel and his wonderful team! I’ve been seeing them for a few years now and everyone phone call and office visit is a delight. They are so easy to talk to about any issues and all are very knowledgeable in what they do. I have not had dental insurance for years and the rates are reasonable for those uninsured. He doesn’t try to upsell me on things and he doesn’t rush into “fixing” a potential problem. Instead we wait it out until the next appointment and see if the issue has changed at all. Other dentists would jump right into a filling, but he doesn’t waste my time or money. Plus, he’s one of the kindest people you’ll meet.

I have been going here ever since I was a little kid. The staff here are the best and Barbara is the nicest person who will clean your teeth. She ways tells me about her travels and makes my experience more enjoyable. Hamel is very professional and does an excellent job. If you need a dentist, this place is recommended.

If you’re looking for the best treatment for your tooth, you’re at the right place. Dr. Hamel is really great at what he does. The treatment is quick and not painful. I had implantation. He did it in the most efficient, painless and flawless way that leave you with ear to ear satisfaction smile. Definitely recommended for those looking for the best dentist service that is painless.

Ive been going to Dr Hamel for years now. I’ve recommended him to my old co-workers, my mom and friends. They all love him and his staff. Ive always loved the friendliness, warmth and kindness ive received all these years. They reassure you before hand of any procedure and let you know what is and isnt covered right away. i appreciate that. If you do pay out of pocket, well their prices are affordable and they will give you payment options. i just had my appointment today and they sanitize, clean and follow all covid procedures. I cant stress just how great they are and im thankful for them.

I’ve been Dr. Ian Hamel’s patient for more than 25 years. Each and every time I go for cleaning or exams or even repairs, I find him and his entire staff to be professional, caring, efficient and skilled. Dr. Hamel himself is highly trained and a dentist who listens to the patient’s symptoms and uses an analytical approach to problem-solving. He spends the time necessary to diagnose and then repair the broken tooth, the cap that needs replacing and will take preventative measures and provide education to the patient when needed. Charlene, his office manager, and assistant office manager, Candi, and hygienist Martha, as well as dental assistant Sylvia, all play roles in the efficient operation of the office, its professionalism and its caring attitudes. Recently, I had a series of headaches that caused a local doctor to send me for a brain CT scan and a brain MRI test. Both tests were very expensive. The doctor did not call me back with the results. In the meantime, my pain seemed to be focused on one of my upper molars. I called Dr. Hamel’s office and they immediately suggested I come in to talk with him and allow him to exam the tooth area. He compared several years of x-rays on that particular tooth and noticed a shift/movement in its position. He took a new x-ray to compare the past ones with the current situation. After examining me, removing the previous cap, then testing to see if the tooth’s roots were still active, he gave me a mild pain injection and put on a temporary cap, creating a new one to repair the missing space from movement at a later date. He noted that the cause of the movement was my grinding of teeth during the night. He made an impression for a night guard, which I picked up a few days later, and he is replacing the temporary cap with a permanent one. Going to the dentist is not something many people look forward to. Going to Dr. Ian Hamel, even with a painful headache, turned out to be the right decision. His analysis and his skill and scientific approach combined to fix my problem. I did not need a brain surgeon. I needed someone who, like Dr. Hamel, listened to the problem, tested the site of the pain and determined the solution. All this in an office with a friendly and competent staff! What’s not to like?

This office is great, Dr. Ian Hamel is very friendly and his staff make you feel very comfortable. He’s very reasonable (I currently don’t have dental insurance) and neither he nor his staff ever once tried to upsell me on additional services. From someone who has been forced to frequent Castle Dental (the Jiffy Lube of dental offices) due to less than stellar insurance options, this office was a welcome change! I waited less than 5 minutes and I was never left in the chair alone for any longer than ten minutes, and only left that long for numbing solutions to kick in. I think I’ve found my new family dentist and will be sending all my friends and family his way!

I hate dentists! Or should I say, I hate going to the dentist’s. When my blinding toothache hit a couple weeks ago, I knocked it back with pain pills and let it subside. I crossed my fingers and hoped it wasn’t a sign of something else… but mental note: when you have a toothache, it means you need to go to the dentist. The pain came back so I decided to bite the bullet (no pun intended… okay, pun intended) and steel myself for the bad news. Turned out it was only as serious as a broken filling. He did say I might need a root canal, but when he started digging around he said that cleaning it out and replacing the filling might work, at least enough to delay a root canal for a year or two. I was surprised because in every other visit to a dentist, it was always a checkup, then come back next week, get part of the work done, come back next week again, and on and on. But Dr. Hamel took care of everything in that one visit — and it turned out he’s a HUGE fan of KFI too. Maybe that’s why he numbed me up but good. Highly recommended.

Dr Hamel is the best dentist ever. And all the staff are super friendly. Take insurance and have reasonable rates for the uninsured. Dr Hamel does General Dentistry here and has multiple Dental Hygenists on staff as well.

Danielle A. from San Carlos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came to Dr. Hamel for a 2nd opinion on a procedure that another dentist had prescribed.  Dr. Hamel was very expert…. asked what had been done to support the diagnosis, used up-to-date technology for the reassessment, and knew what had already been done in my mouth without my telling him.  I was impressed both by him and his staff.

Having found Dr. Hamel on Yelp. I figured it was time I wrote him a review. I have been a patient of Dr. Hamel for a little over a year and half now. He is an excellent dentist. He’s professional, polite, and understanding of your needs and concerns when you see him. He’s also easy to talk to, both as a dentist and as a person. On one of my last visits with him the two of us were talking about our current economy as he did my gold crown. I have never felt any pain while I was in the chair at Dr. Hamel’s and in today world of dentistry that is how it should be. Dr. Hamel makes sure you are completely numb before he begins working on you and takes his time with your mouth. The quality of work I have had on my mouth from Dr. Hamel is excellent. Over the past year and half I have been extremely pleased with Dr. Hamel and his staff. If you are looking for a great Dentist in the Burbank area or SFV, Dr. Hamel should be your go to.
