Dr. Jamie Sands is the best at what she does! Her staff and well as herself make you feel very welcomed and make going to the dentist enjoyable. I am convinced she is the best in the business. Dr. Sands likes to take care of any of my problems before they become a bigger issue. That’s is why I have absolute trust in her diagnosis. Not only does she work as a preventative and restorative dentist but she also does cosmetic! She’s a triple threat. She has an eye for perfection and my teeth have never looked so good. Part of my great oral health also has to do with the amazing hygienist at her office. I’ve seen multiple hygienist there and I’ve loved each one of them. You don’t just get a cleaning and leave, they educate you and give you tips on what kind of home care you should be doing. I’ve never had a bad experience at her office. The staff seems to love their job because they get along so well that you even feel a part of their little family. I have recommended and will continue to refer friends and family!

Dr. Sands is a genuinely amazing doctor. The thing about her abilities that is SO WONDERFUL is how she can take a mouth that other ‘top-tier’ dentists have worked on and improve it to an unbelievable degree, using any of the many holistic methods that she has been trained in, and basically FIX all the bad or mediocre pricey dental work you have had in your life, making you beautiful. Her work actually makes your face beautiful, like it always would have been with a healthy and even and gorgeous-looking mouth. She has a profound grasp of aesthetics. She does not do lousy patch jobs, she actually FIXES your face. If you are looking for a dentist that will improve your life quality, do yourself the biggest favor you can and go to Jamie Sands.

I went to Jamie Sands over 15 years ago and never looked back. You know when you have found something and you think “Is to good to be true?” This is not the case with Dr. Jamie Sands ….. She is very true and thankfully a practicing Dentist where I live. Even if I was to move away from Los Angeles, I would certainly return to have her office work on my teeth, no question! Dr. Sands is at the top echelon of her field. Jamie knows everything about her profession and it shows. Jamie’s knowledge is mindblowing. Her focus is unlike any other dentist practicing and she delivers incredible results. She is rock solid in her knowledge and care for her patients. I never was afraid to see the dentist all my life, but Jamie Sands brings about such confidence and knowledge that you simply can’t help but LOVE going to the dentist.. The enthusiasm is real..

Dr. Sands provided exemplary service for both of my sons. Both of them had issues ranging from bite problems to needing veneers and fillings. Her attention to detail, empathy for the patient and results are spectacular. I recommend her team for your entire family.

Dr. Sands is amazing. She treats the underlying issues to make sure your problems are fully solved, not just treating symptoms. She makes sure everything is perfect, and makes sure you are completely happy. And she provides CARE. She has amazing bedside manner. Her staff is incredible too. And Jolie is the ONLY person in my life I have ever had a pleasant (and even enjoyable) experience having my teeth cleaned by. I hope she never retires! Whether you just need a cleaning or your entire mouth rebuilt like I did, come here, they will treat you like family! I cannot say enough wonderful things about Dr. Sands and staff. Feel free to find me on facebook and ask for my story and photos of my teeth if you like. 😀

I cannot recommend Dr. Sands and her team enough. I am no stranger to dentistry and I am also a perfectionist. So when I had to find a new dentist in Los Angeles to help correct issues with my smile that stemmed from an accident I was in many years ago, I was not going to settle with just any dentist. I started seeing Dr. Sands almost two years ago, and from day one she and her entire team made me feel extremely comfortable and welcome. After she provided me with my treatment plan, I knew she and I were on this dental journey together and that I was in the best hands there are. Through the ups and the downs of restoring and perfecting my smile, Dr. Sands was there to guide me if I was not sure about the next course of treatment and she went above and beyond to help me accomplish my treatment plan with the very hectic and travel-heavy work schedule that I have. When my treatment called for additional support from Periodontist and endodontists, Dr. Sands coordinated the entire treatment and demanded the same attention to detail that I not only expect of her but that she and her team expect of themselves. I am so happy with the outcome of my treatment, and although my treatment plan is complete, I will continue to go back to Dr. Sands as my dentist for cleanings and regularly check-ups because her team is second to none

Jamie Sands is the best Dentist I’ve ever had without a doubt! She is a perfectionist and it shows not only in her work but also how she speaks to you. She is always professional and works to give you a pleasant experience with every visit. Her staff is also intelligent, careful, and easy to talk to as well. I needed Invisilign because my teeth were small and filled with gaps. The end result was an amazing smile and compliments everywhere I go! I have recommended her to my friend and she had an outstanding experience with them as well!

Brad David Reed (Source: Google)


I’ve been to a number of dentists in my time (let’s just say I’ve had a LOT of dental issues), and Dr. Sands is easily the best dentist I’ve ever been to. Perhaps the most important difference that I’ve noticed between her and other dentists, is that she seems to love her job. I think that is most likely why she excels at it. She is extremely knowledgeable about her craft, and demands a higher standard from her staff and from her self. What’s great is that she is able to do this while also being extremely personable. Her chair-side manor is warm and reassuring, and I’m not sure I’ve ever been to another office where every single person in that office is so super nice! She’s not the least expensive dentist out there, but hey, “You get what you pay for”. If you’re going to spend a little extra on something, spend it on good health.

Dr. Jamie is a terrific dentist. Thorough, caring, uplifting. It’s always a pleasure to be in her office, knowing that I am in the very best hands and being cared for by her and her very professional and polite staff. I have some complex dental issues due to treatments in my youth, and Dr. Jamie has handled them with extreme care, seeking second opinions, consulting with colleagues and never taking the fast and easy way out. I highly recommend her practice.

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


I’ve been seeing Dr. Sands for 9 years. She not only knows my name when she sees me in her reception room but remembers my 3 kids too. Over the past decade I have referred friends and family who all say the same thing… she is kind, dedicated and thorough. She cares about each patient and their OVER all health. She doesn’t miss a thing…ever. If you want comprehensive, preventive care at a really high level of expertise this is your go to place.

Jolie G. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had the most AMAZING experiences with Dr Sands and her impeccable, highly professional, state of the art office. The staff is wonderful, always friendly and courteous and willing to attend to all of my needs. Dr Sands is not only, highly educated, extremely motivated, and has an eagle eye sharpness for detail and aesthetics, she continues to make my oral health a top priority. She may not be the most inexpensive but If you are looking for a proactive, preventive care dentist this is the office for you! Do you want your work done cheaply or correctly? I will choose Dr Sands every time!

Zoe Corwin (Source: Google)


Visiting the dentist can be a stressful experience…visiting Dr. Sands’ practice is the complete opposite. From Dr. Sands’ professional and caring approach, to her fantastic staff, to the beautiful office space – I always leave feeling great about my teeth and really positive about my time at the dentist! Dr. Sands cares for my whole family – including my aging dad – and they feel the same way. I’m posting b/c I know it’s hard to find a good dentist. I’ve recommended several people to Dr. Sands – all have thanked me.

Matan W. from Düsseldorf, Germany (Source: Yelp)


I came in to do a full in-depth cleaning as well as a filling for a Cavity I had. Won’t lie that going to a dentist is never my highlight, but with Jamie it made things so much easier. The staff are wonderful and kind, always with a smile and ready to help or explain anything. I cleaned my teeth with Rhina who was amazing. Every step of the way I was spoken to and explained what are the next steps to be taken. I even got Beats headphones that I connected to my phone to hear music so that I would here the cleaning and scraping parts. Genius! Dr Sands and Sandra did my fillings. The procedure was pretty quick and clean. My tooth where the filling is Unnoticeable the color is similar to the rest of my teeth and the shape fits perfectly my teeth line. Thank you to the whole team for saving my teeth. There are things you don’t change in life, Dr Sands and her dentistry is one of them.

Robin M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr Sands for a year since I left my previous dentist of 30+ years.  I was impressed by the comfort and professionalism of the office.  All the staff is long term and are good at their jobs.  Dr Sands’ office is both efficient and just comfortable.  I felt valued and well cared for.   Costs are explained up front and the work is done cost-effectively.   I am very happy to be a patient here and recommend the practice.

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


Jamie and her entire team are absolutely amazing. I had been having a couple of dental issues (mostly cosmetic) that my previous dentist could not resolve. From the moment I walked in the door, Jamie made it her mission to find a solution for me–which she did. In addition to being highly skilled and thorough, Jamie and her team are extremely pleasant to work with. And the new facilities are not only nice to look at, but they house cutting-edge technology in the field of dentistry, all of which facilitates the delivery of top notch care to her patients. I couldn’t recommend Jamie more highly. My wife has already switched over to her and I have encouraged many friends to do the same.

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


Dr. Sands is wonderful ! I’ve been putting off seeing a dentist for many years due to other health issues but I’m so glad I found dr Sands. I was very nervous about getting veneers because I didn’t want them to look fake. I’ve seen so many people who have them too big, too white and fake looking. Dr. Sands was very professional, detailed and comforting during my visit. She did an excellent job with my veneers. I’m extremely happy with the results. They look very natural. The office staff is also very friendly and professional. Highly recommend !!

Dalton Day (Source: Facebook)


Dr. Sands has been a pleasure to work with from day one. She is constantly worried about her patients needs and what works best for them. She makes it feel like you’re her only patient for the day! I would 100% recommend Dr. Sands to anyone looking for anything from routine hygiene checks to special requests!

Yvonne Reyes (Source: Google)


Dr. Sands makes your visits at the Dentist very easy. Her staff members are awesome from Edith in the front to Jorge and Sandra and her awesome hygienist. Dr Sands is very good with her anesthetic you don’t feel a thing you dont even feel the needle going in. They offer you nitrous which is great if you have anxiety being at the Dental office. So if fear is stopping you from going to the Dentist you need to give Dr. Sands a try.

This review is well overdue. My first appointment was an Invisalign consultation 7 months ago. Dr. Sands clearly explained the entire process needed for my case and made me feel right at ease. I am going for check ups every month to monitor my Invisalign progress and enjoy going there. I would highly recommend anyone considering ortho work to use Dr. Sands and her amazing and friendly staff!

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


Dr. Sands is amazing at her job!  I brought my son who had a bad job done the week before at another dentist.  We had no appointment, but she was able to take him in immediately.  Like an artist she rebuilt the tooth, gave us an informed plan of action for the next few steps needed, along with a referral and advise for our particular situation.  As my son transitions to adult dentists, she worked with a perfect balance of gentle care and direct advise that gave him a strong sense of comfort and responsibility.  The quote that stuck in my mind near the end of our visit was, as she is perfecting the edges of his new tooth and asking him to feel the bite,…..”is it perfect?”, then she works on it some more, “is it perfect now?”, then another little grinding, “how about now?”……she made sure he understood…”you know in dentistry, it can only be perfect, short of perfect is not good enough!”….he let her work until he said “…it’s perfect!” She made us feel so comfortable after such a hard experience the week before.  I am grateful for Dr Sands and her friendly team, they made a hard week of dental trauma melt away into warm smiles and gratitude.  Thank you for doing what you do so well!

Last week I had dental treatment done by Dr. Sands. The experience was pleasant and professional. The office runs very efficiently both in the front and back office in addition its a beautiful. Dr. Sands takes her time in explaining the treatment. She is patient, pleasant and professional. Overall for having dental treatment it, is was the best experience so far and painless !

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


Dr. Sands and her team have changed my opinion on ‘going to the dentist’. It used to be a painful and disheartening process. The people, the place, the team- and particularly Dr. Sands herself- are incredibly warm, expert, and inviting. The best part? The transformation of my smile…I don’t just look better, I FEEL better without nagging headaches and jaw pain! This is a holistic and yet deeply scientific approach. Dr. Sands treats each person (and their mouth) as an individual, and has boosted my health while beautifying me. My before-and-after smile pictures are….so good I can’t believe it, the whole line of my jaw has changed for the better as well. I recommend this practice to ANYONE in the LA area looking for cosmetic work that is top-tier in terms of both luxury and expertise. This place is for people who truly want THE BEST. Thank you Dr. Sands!!!

Dr. Sands is the greatest dentist. I love that she explains everything in such great detail. she answers all my questions and makes sure i understand everything before leaving her office. she’s kind and caring towards her patients and makes sure you’re as comfortable as possible before starting any procedure.I’ve had some work done and her anesthetic shot doesn’t hurt at all. She also did my invisalign and i couldn’t be any more happier. i love my new smile. She and her staff always makes me and my family feel welcomed. I highly recommend Dr. Sands dental office

A visit to Dr. Jamie Sands’ dental office is like a visit to a luxury spa, except your teeth are the ones getting pampered. Every detail from the warm, aromatherapeutic towels offered after a visit with the lovely hygienist, to the plush waiting room suggest a five star practice, and my experience here was exactly that. I have always loved my smile, but Dr. Sands took my teeth to the next level. I look forward to many more visits to Dr. Sands’ dental practice over the coming years and many more reasons to smile, brilliantly.

Stephanie S. from Studio City, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sands and her team are incredible. That is a lot coming from me because I have always, and I mean always, hated going to the dentist. I get anxiety about it every time I have to go in. But Dr. Sands is way better than most. I was in need of a cosmetic dentist because I had chipped one of my front teeth about 12 years ago and needed a replacement cap; mine had been discoloring from age. Since I am in the entertainment industry, where a beautiful smile can land you a job, I needed someone who really knew what they were doing. I did a lot of research before going in for a consultation–which was free, I might add–and I was not disappointed. As soon as I walked in, Edith and the front desk crew knew my name and welcomed me with big smiles; it didn’t have that stuffy, dentist vibe I was used to. All of the technicians that helped get me situated were also so friendly, it was a great atmosphere right from the start. When Dr. Sands came in to consult, she made it clear that she could replace that one tooth cap easily with a veneer, but we also had a discussion about what else we could do to give me the best smile possible. See, if I had only done one veneer, that one front tooth would have been disproportionately perfect compared to the others. After a long discussion and plenty of time to go home and think it over, I decided to get veneers for most of my top teeth. Dr. Sands and her team were with me every step of the way, from the whitening beforehand, to bringing me in the same day if I had a problem with the temporaries, to calming me down when my anxiety about people working on my teeth flared. Granted, it was a long process because I had a good amount of work that needed to be done, but I could not be happier with the way my smile has turned out. It’s bigger, more eye-catching, more symmetrical, brighter, but it still looks like my smile. I haven’t had a single person be like OMG you got veneers, but I have had pretty much everyone notice that I looked more confident and endearing. I like that I have to tell people for them to really notice that the veneers aren’t my real teeth, because that means that Dr. Sands and her team did a remarkable job keeping the integrity of my smile the same. I’ve had the veneers for months now, and I haven’t had any trouble with them. Very much worth the time, effort, and price (which was quoted to me early and did not change). I still go in for cleanings every 3-6 months and I plan to for a long while. HIGHLY RECOMMEND

Ryan O. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Sands for a few years now, first going to her for dental cleanings, upping my dental game to veneers, and completing the cosmetic route with invisalign, I have experienced the highest level of customer service, and a genuine care for my well-being. Jamie is aware the dentist is a scary thing, and she alleviates this fear immediately through hiring a staff that is as friendly and authentic as her. I have recommended all of my friends to her and they have experienced the same thing. With my smile changed, Jamie Sands’ office has truly changed my life and given me a confidence and a brighter outlook on life. She cares about the entire process, from office visits to final results, and only works with the best staff and Dr’s she refers. I couldn’t be happier with the service Jamie and her staff have provided, and I would encourage anyone looking for a dentist to see her ASAP. Even if its been awhile since you’ve been to the dentist,you’ll never want another one once you become a patient of Dr. Sands.

SIMPLY THE BEST! CLEAN PROFESSIONAL OFFICE. PAINLESS PROCEDURES!. CARING, CALMING DOCTOR. I had a great fear of dentists and needed several crowns and extensive work. Dr. Sands talked me through my fears, made me feel comfortable and treated me as if I were family. Needless to say, I now LOVE going to the dentist! My experiences have been painless and fast. Dr. Sands ALWAYS follows up and checks in. She has a wonderfully calming presence and is a truly caring professional! The staff is just as wonderful, explaining everything from insurance benefits to easily scheduling appointments — and rearranging if necessary. The dental hygienists are also careful, painless and VERY thorough. The office is VERY clean. I have now moved my children to the practice. This week my 11-year-old daughter had her first cavity. Dr. Sands made time in her day to fill it quickly with no needles. My daughter didn’t even feel it. Truly painless. She will NOT share my previous fear of denitsts because she has the best! I highly recommend Dr. Sands and her practice.

Elizabeth L. from Valley Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


I saw Dr. Sands for an exam. It was 2 hours but it was the most thorough and amazing exam I have ever had. This Dentist knows her stuff and her staff is very friendly and patient. I have had joint pain and am a grinder. Instead of putting me into a guard she gave me options to address the underlying issue which is my bite. No one has ever even explained that my bite being OFF created the grinding habit.. She is also super preventive and instead of watching things she addresses them when they are small so in the long run I will have less dental work and less pain. LOVE HER!!

Emanuel Ruiz (Source: Google)


All my appointments with Dr. Sands have been made quick and easy! I have never met any doctor, not just dentist, that had genuinely cared about all my needs. She takes her time to explain every procedure and puts you at ease. The office is very modern and clean and all the staff is friendly. I truly believe Dr. Sands is the best dentist in the Valley.

Amy DiBianca (Source: Google)


Dr. Jamie Sands is by far the best dentist I have ever met. I have been seeing her for almost 17 years now! Not only does she have an amazing bedside manner, she is incredibly conscientious about comfort, tooth sensitivity and keeping the experience as pleasant as possible. Her office is beautiful and spotless and has state of the art everything including personal televisions you can watch, iPods to listen to, or whatever you need to relax. Furthermore, she is an artist. She did my veneers years ago and we worked together to get a result that we were both thrilled with. And she wanted me to be thrilled. That was her priority and she won’t accept anything less. I love my veneers and both my husband and I adore Dr. Sands and her entire office staff…warm, caring, and beyond professional. 10 stars!!!!

Erik A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Right off the bat I’m going to say; Dr. Sands is an artist with the teeth. Truly I’ve been blown away with her attention to detail in every step of the process in helping me to restore the health and cosmetic restoration of my teeth. Even in how Dr. Sands and her staff communicate with each I was impressed. They seem to have a sincere happiness about the work they are doing and a clear respect for each other. That says volumes to me about the intent behind the work. Additionally Dr. Sands genuinely took the time to explain everything that was happening to me; what course of action was needed and how to keep my teeth healthy. Regularly she’d ask if I was feeling any discomfort. And in all of my encounters with Dr. Sands there was always a patient , nurturing and personal quality to her work that I find to be almost singular in my history of seeing dentists. I’ve had about 5 visits and there are about another 3-4 to go in order to get my teeth back to being nice & happy again. I’m so stoked to visit them and that to me is a sure sign of what a fantastic job they are doing over there. “I actually LOOK forward to visiting them!” Highly recommended.

I’ve been away from the area for several years since Dr. Sands completed my major dental work of crowns and veneers. I’ve seen a few different dentists since that time and all have given great compliments to the work of Dr. Sands. When I recently lost a portion of a crown (from my childhood dentist), I immediately booked an appointment with Dr. Sands. I was welcomed back into the office as if it had just been a few months rather than years!

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


Dr. Sands has been caring for our family for many years – including my aging father. We are all very grateful for her excellent care and oversight of a lovely practice with fantastic staff. I’ve recommended several people to Dr. Sands’ practice – and they have all thanked me! It’s no secret that many people are nervous about going to the dentist – so I thought I would share this unsolicited feedback from my 13-year-old after recently leaving the office after a cleaning and check up. “You know mom,” she said in very matter-of-fact tone, “Dr. Jamie is a really good dentist” (emphasis on the “really”). I think she was reflecting on Dr. Sands’ super professional but also incredibly kind & gentle approach. If a teenager approves…you know Dr. Sands is top-notch!

Kim Canter (Source: Google)


Dr. Sands is an excellent dentist. Her staff is extremely competent and professional. Her office is state of the art. And most importantly, Dr. Sands is completely dedicated to giving each of her patients a perfect smile. She did bonding on my front teeth and whitening. She is meticulous, has a great beside manner and is very gentle. Her results are incredible. I have referred many friends to her and everyone is extremely happy with her work. I highly recommend Dr. Sands.

DG. H. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Sands for 5 over years now. Dr. Sands and her fantastic staff have changed my life!!! I have always been insecure about my teeth and smile and over the course of the last 4 years she came up with a plan to fix my teeth that was affordable through a payment plan and I have never looked back. Jamie and her entire staff are always welcoming and attentive to my every concern and question the minute I walk through the door. The best way to describe the your experience at Jamie’s practice is “family”…Dr. Sands treats you like family. You know you’re safe the minute you walk in the door and Edith greets you. No matter if you’re getting a teeth cleaning or a full set of veneers you are in great hands and there is NO ONE BETTER in the business. I get more compliments on my smile since i’ve been a patient of Dr. Sands…and it’s no surprise why! Recently I’ve had a bunch of migraine issues and it’s been in part due to a fractured tooth that Jamie’s office helped find. She’s been available to me by text, phone, email to make sure i’m ok. Dr. Sands is the real deal…she truly loves what she does and cares about those she treats. Look no further…Dr. Sands is the best dentist around and good hearted person.
