Kimberly M. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


These are very uncertain times and when you cant sleep due to tooth pain you are completely desperate. We called our family dentist Janet Rofoa DDS. Turns out not only was my wisdom tooth impacted a cyst had formed below it. When Janet saw my mouth she knew there was no putting this off. In a few hours she found an anesthesiologist and an oral surgeon willing  to come in just for my case. Upon my arrival i was tested for the Corona Virus as was everyone who worked in the office that day. That put me at ease to see a few people in the office (she has a staff of 15 people normally). Janet knows that going to the dentist brings on PTSD from a childhood bad dentist experience and she always goes the extra mile explaining things throughly until i am ready to proceed. I had given up on ever finding a dentist that had  patience, empathy and understood anxiety. My mom and grandma used her and encouraged me to try her. I am a customer for life. I cant say enough for her kindness and her staff is also warm and friendly.

Camille D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Janet is the best dentist in the Los Angeles area – by far! She has been more than accommodating and kind to my family for the more than 30 years that we have known her. She is an exceptional dentist who always ensures that I am comfortable and checks regularly to make sure that I am not in pain as she knows that I am scared of going to the dentist. You can just tell that she just wants you to be happy and have a great experience in her office. We have had nothing but amazing encounters with Janet and her staff as the service is always thorough and caring and her office as it is always so clean. My family and I would never see anyone but Dr. Refoa!

William T. (Source: Zocdoc)


It was excellent! At first I was disappointed because my appointment had to be rescheduled because they had technical issues, but they were sincere. And when I came back they took me right in! No wait! THEN I found out the pain I was having was because I needed a root canal! NOOOOOOO!!! BUT – not only did they perform the procedure THEN and THERE, but it went flawlessly! I’ve had times in the past when the dentist has to inject me 3-5 times before I don’t feel pain. Here it was once! I am happy with my service!

Lily G. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I never thought that someday I would be saying this about any dentist, but Dr. Refoa and her team have made it so enjoyable and pleasant whenever I had to come for visit, that I actually like coming to a see my dentist. They are very professional, caring, and consciously gentle with their patients. Dr. Refoa even take care of my children (they call her auntie Janent) and my husband. We fly from New York to California to see her as our dentist. We have tried other dentists in New York, but no one can stand up to Dr. Refoa. We as a family strongly and without any reservation recommend her to anyone that is looking for a dentist.

I just had the most extraordinary dental cleaning experience at JJP Dental. I went in for my cleaning and was anticipating anxiety accompanying the pain and discomfort which typically go hand-in-hand with having my teeth worked on. From the moment I sat in the chair and started engaging with Dr. Amir a sense of calm and trust came over me. He was so present with me and listened intently to my concerns making sure that he interacted with me and worked on me in a way that was sensitive, compassionate and professional. I felt that he was completely connected to me, my experience and what I was dealing with. His intuition was astounding. The level of accuracy and procedural integrity where the highest I’ve ever experienced. And for the first time in my life I did not have to be numbed to have my teeth cleaned. And, I did not experience any pain, discomfort or anxiety during the procedure. JJP Dental delivered on their promise to provide the most extraordinary dental care and Dr. Amir is a total expression of JJP Dental teams commitment to their patients. I highly recommend JJP Dental for all your dental care needs!

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


I have been going to Janet Refoa’s office for over 2 years now and the staff here really make you feel comfortable.  I had Alyna do my first cleaning and that was the best cleaning ever.  Jason is extremely funny and always in a good spirit.  Mojdeh has a great personality and was very gentle when she removed my crown.  They are also very flexible when it comes to your financial situation, so I will definitely come back here again.  Thank you Dr. Refoa!

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


Last Friday my front tooth broke off. My dentist was out of the country for 10 days. I was referred to Dr. Refoa and she saw me right away. Within a short time I had my beautiful smile back. I am so pleased and happy that I made her my dentist and she is helping me make up for a couple years of neglect. Her prices are reasonable. Not only is she an incredible dentist, she is an amazing human being. I would recommmend her to everybody. Don’t be fooled by the Beverly Hills address. She is very reasonable!

Cemre M. from Ankara, Turkey (Source: Yelp)


One of the biggest fear of mine is having dental problems at the overseas. I am an international student in Los Angeles and my fear has happened. I was feeling super bad, taking 3 painkillers​ every day​ and it was getting worse day by day. Luckily one of my friends recommended​ JJP Dental. I met with Dr. Janet. While she was checking my teeth, she found out that I had two abscesses​. Dr. Janet directly cleaned up the worst tooth and gave me the prescription. After we have negotiated the price, she planned the schedule. Because the first thing to do was clean up the other tooth. After the cleaning process of both teeth. I needed to wait until I finish my antibiotic. She and my root canal doctor were rigorous about​ my teeth. They took a good care of me. Even the prices are high for an international student, I can totally say that they know what they are doing and they work carefully. I did not have any dental problems after the treatments. In a nutshell, I am thankful to JJP Dental.

Janet Refoa has been our dentist for twenty years. I have the utmost confidence in her expert abilities and have always found her and the staff to be professional and empathetic. When we have an urgent issue Janet has always made time to attend to us. We have transitioned our 19 and 21 year olds to her and just yesterday needed an urgent appointment for a wisdom tooth… and Janet made the time. No hesitation in recommending her!

Diana E. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I  have known Janet since 1980. I always had perfect teeth and no cavity, but suddenly, I  had developed Gingivitis, an early stage of gum disease.   A month before I met Janet, I had a shocking experience which caused me having depression, anxiety and sever gum bleeding.  I had consulted two other dentists in Beverly Hills and Santa Monica area prior to my meeting with Janet.  Both doctors had advised me that due to sever gum problems, my teeth had become very loose and could not be saved.  The alternative was to use dentures.  I was only 30 years old and could not believe my perfect teeth were to be replaced with dentures.  When I met Janet, she assured me she will do everything in her power to save my teeth and she kept her promise.  After a year of continued gum treatments, my gums had been restored from the puffy red and bleeding mess.  During the years, I had to have several dental works which included dental caps for my front teeth, but I had to keep my own teeth beneath the beautiful porcelain caps that Janet had made for me.  The caps did not change the appearance of my mouth.  Recently, I have replaced my wisdom tooth and surrounding tooth with implants and I am very satisfied with the results.    Today, after 34 years, my gums are healthier than those of just about anyone I know.   I still go to Janet for all my dental needs.  Needless to say, Janet always treats me like a family member and cares for my well being.  Personally, I think we all can use professionals who are experienced and caring and can be trusted at the same time.  Dr. Janet Refoa is one of those rear individual and I would highly recommend her.

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


Let me first say that the review that Ted B wrote on 12/3/14 was not true.  I was there in the waiting room and HE was stirring up trouble and made a huge scene.  The staff was professional and pleasant to him before and after the police arrived. As for me.  I love her work and her staff.  I recently had a family friend dentist over for the holidays and they looked inside my 92 year old Moms mouth that Janet has worked on extensively.   They said the work is amazing as Janet is trying to preserve my Mom’s mouth from cavities and extractions.  My family was very pleased an outsider gave Janet such a glowing report card.  I trust Janet so much that when my tooth had to be pulled, I am going to her for my implant.  In her office she has a perialdonest so everything can be handled under one roof.  Tooth issues are never fun but Janet makes it comfortable and she is very caring.

Manouchehr E. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Janet Refoa is PHENOMENAL. She has the most delicate hands, which is a critical characteristic of any dentist. She has been my dentist for over 30 years. Dentistry is truly an art and a craft which she has mastered and the customer service received here is phenomenal. I hate going to dentists, but truly look forward to every visit I have ever had with her. All the equipment is state of the art, nestled in the best area of beverly hills triangle, with convenient free parking next door. I can go on and on, but her experience and care for her patients speaks for herself. I would trust no one else with my teeth and am so thankful that I am always in such good care.

Carol D. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Refoa has been our family dentist for the past two decades. She and her staff have provided excellent dental care for us and I would not entrust my children’s dental care to anyone else. JJP Dental Practice is a trustworthy, professional and friendly establishment and a pleasure to be a patient of. I have recommended many friends to Dr Refoa over the years and they are just as pleased with the service, otherwise I would not continue to recommend her. Thank you Dr Refoa and staff for your many years of excellent service to my family.

 Alen D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Through the years i have gone to many dental offices only to be disappointed with what other dentists have scarred me with. JJP Dental was the right place i was looking for. Dr. Refoa and her staff are very professional, intelligent,and precise. I have recently gone in to have a dental implant surgery performed along with a bone graft. I have to say it was easier then a walk in the park. I did not feel any pain. The Procedure was performed flawlessly with no errors what so ever. JJP Dental is the only establishment that i can say without a doubt is the one place i trust to work on my teeth. I am always happy to come here and i can honestly say that i couldn’t ask for a better dentist. Thank you JJP Dental for giving me that smile that i have always been dreaming about.

Suzan C. from Tulum, Mexico (Source: Yelp)


I just had to postpone yet another appointment with Dr. Refoa. No problem, no charge. Never is, and I’ve done this a lot. I’ve just perused some of the negative reviews and I truly can’t believe what I was reading. I think these reviewers might need to change their medication… First, I am always ushered in almost immediately upon my arrival. The staff is soft-spoken and very courteous. They even text me a reminder the day before the appointment. As for the Doctor, she is  warm, open and honest…  She negotiated a better price for my extensive work since I don’t have insurance and told me what I could hold off on now.  She hugs me when I arrive and leave, chats with me as a friend, and really does deliver painless work!   I’ve recommended others to her who are equally pleased with the convenience, quality, and prices at JJP Dental. There’s even a parking lot in the back so you don’t have to hassle– or pay — with Wilshire Blvd parking! So to those who claim there is yelling and other discourteous behavior at this office, I have never witnessed anything that even remotely resembles that. And I’ve been there many many times. Hmmmm… bad reviews — sour grapes or just sour people?

Richard K. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I waited way too long to find a new dentist  because I had a great one who had moved away a few years ago.  So when I finally found Dr. Refoa, she had big shoes to fill…and she and her staff did just that.  After my first consultation, I found out that I had been neglecting my teeth a little too long and had big problems. The x-rays showed that she had her work cut out for her and she said she might not be able to save a couple of them.  Well Dr. Refoa is not just a regular Dentist… she is a Dental Surgeon .  She rebuilt two of my molars which already had root canals and, as she informed me, were rotting away from under the crowns.  After she fixed them, and three other teeth, I could finally eat again… in comfort. She now has me on a much better dental hygiene routine, including regular cleanings to avoid problems in the future. So, thank you Dr. Refoa.  You fixed me up in no time with minimal discomfort and I’m very grateful!

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


Just had my first dentist appointment in over 4 years with Dr Refoa and i’m in awe of how easy it was. I had 6 cavities and i’d never had a filling before so I was super scared and having anxiety about getting them filled. Dr Refoa calmed me down so much and told me we didn’t need to do any today but they weren’t going to go away and if I was this scared, I should try to face my fears. I’m so glad I did! After the first filling she told me that 1 was done and I started laughing because it was so painless, I didn’t feel a thing! We did all 6 and it was no problem. I feel like I hit the dentist jackpot. I’m actually looking forward to going back to the dentist now… (never thought I’d say that).

True-fully I’m the baby of all babies when it comes time to visit the dentist for a cavity to be DRILLED and FILLED. Dr.Janet Refoa along with staffers Shiva and Mojdeh have gone above and beyond with handling the care of my smile. Dr. Refoa saved two teeth from root canals when other dentist were claiming it was the only route to go. While keeping the procedure painless her sense of humor lightens the mood that you forget that your having your tooth drilled. If your seeking a new dentist and sifting through reviews on their characteristics, please stop and read not one more. Take my word for its worth more than gold, when I say book your appointment with Dr. Janet Refoa and staff for your best dental experience.

Alyson C. from Central LA, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Refoa and JJP Dental Practice for a long time.  We know we can count on expert, pain-free care in a caring environment.  This week was no different.  My husband needed to be seen for an emergency treatment.  Even though the office has been closed due to COVID-19, my husband was able to contact Dr. Refoa, and she saw to it that he got the same excellent care we always find, quickly.  It really was easy and painless.  We are truly thankful.

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


Dr. Refoa is an amazing dentist. In the past I avoided my old dentist like the plague which made me inherit a number of dental problems. Dr. Refoa has completely changed the way I feel about going to the dentist, with each visit, she always makes sure to provides me with comfortable service with the least amount of pain or zero pain for the past 3-4 years. She truly has restored my teeth to pristine condition. Her hands are very gentle and she is very smooth when doing actual procedures. What is also really nice is that Dr. Refoa takes the time to really listen to your needs and she gives her utmost care to make sure you walk out of her office with a smile. Overall, I am grateful to have her as my dentist and will continue to recommend my family and friends to her.

Taylor E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Even though I had a cleaning in mid-December, I called Dr. Refoa’s office to tell them I was concerned as to whether or not my gums were inflamed. Since I am pre-diabetic with higher than normal blood sugar levels, I am at higher risk for gum disease than the average person,–hence why I wanted to be double check to make sure my gums were in decent shape. I visited the office on Saturday 1/16. My appointment was at 10am, but I went early and arrived at 9:15 am because I had questions regarding the insurance coverage of my previous visit. Within 10 minutes of waiting, Alyna, one of the receptionists/assistants took me in their private conference room to discuss and clarify all my questions. Since Alyna knew I was seriously concerned about the present state of my gums, she asked Dr. Refoa to see me immediately to briefly examine my mouth. My gums, Dr. Refoa said, were slightly irritated, but she informed me that were no serious or costly procedures that needed to be done. From there, we decided to monitor my gums every 6-8 weeks to catch any onset of periodontal disease. I am so thankful that Dr. Refoa values preventative dental care and that she took time out of her busy work day to quickly examine my gums free of charge. She and her staff truly care about making sure you receive the oral care that you personally need!

I have been going to Dr. Refoa for all my dental needs for the last six years. JPP Dental does excellent work. My family, friends and Co worker’s tell me all the time how nice my teeth look. Several family members and friends are now going to JPP Dental for there dental needs. Dr. Refoa prices are fare and she always takes time to explain every procedure. Most insurance plans are welcome. So if you want a buetiful smile JPP Dental is the dentist for you. Peter M

David P. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to JJP Dental for about 3 years and give them my highest recommendation! I have had fillings, crowns, cleanings and an extraction. The are experts in the profession and know how to put their patients at ease. I like how they will not do anything unless it is absolutely necessary, and none of my dental problems have resurfaced (and I had a lot of problems!) Currently I am using “Invisalign”, which is a painless process for straightening teeth using invisible clear plastic appliances which fit over the teeth and straighten them in stages over time. I now have so much more confidence when I smile!

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

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


The Staff is great and very thorough from confirming my appointment and calling me to remind me and letting me know where to park. As soon as I walked in i was greeted with a warm welcome. my cleaning was great and my wisdom tooth extraction went really well. Dr. Janet was concerned with my comfort and asked me how I was felling through out the process. A friend recommended Dr. Refoa to me and I would recommend her to anyone in need of a good dentist.

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


5 stars  Anonymous Verified customer. Walking to this medical center it’s like walking to the park it’s relaxing refreshing and very quiet everybody smile especially a young lady at the reception which she looks like an angel. Surely cost you money to walk inside the dental office in Beverly Hills but not here they do take care of you and work with you especially I find out they have a payment plan which is very good. Real doctor referral is the fun part of this clinic I feel I’m talking to my sister she’s gentle she’s nice she’s caring and she’s expensive. So remember and I remember you’re at the most expensive city of Los Angeles. But dealing with this clinic it s worth it trust me I’m halfway to my dental problem and I will get back to you once I finish doing my teeth and finish paying my payment.

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


Dr. Janet Refoa has been my dentist and only dentist for 14 years now. I trust her and her work very much. I know that in case of any dental emergency I can count on her beause she is precise, kind and a caring person. She is also highly knowledgable and highly experienced. I was suffering from post-pregnancy dental issues that actually one night I had so much pain in a couple of my teeth that as soon as I told her, she asked me to show myself as soon as possible so her assistant gave me an appointment within 2 days and it was all taken care of that day. She has amazing staff, too, very caring. Thank you Janet for taking good care of me!!

I took my mother whom I adore to Dr Refoa after having awful experiences with other Denrists. My mom has Altzheimers which does make it more difficult however you would think a dentist has some patience. Dr Refoa is a true gem. She took care of all my moms dental cares. She made her the best partial I have ever come across. My moms had many over the years. My mom loves her. She makes my mom smile beyond. Her staff is so warm and loving and they really care. They are busy so you may have to wait but trust me. It’s worth it if you want a beautiful smile.

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


I would like to appreciate Dr. Refoa and her staff for great job that they done for my father. one morning my father woke up with severe pain on his upper left tooth. I took my father  to the dentist and  he recommended for extraction and new partial denture. as my friend recommendation we went to Dr. Refoa`s office for second oponion. Dr.Refoa diagnosed for Root Canal and as a result saving that tooth. Root Canal done at same day without any pain and complication. My father was well taken care and did not have any problem later on and beside that he was very lucky to save that tooth. I would rocommend Dr Refoa to everybody as a great dentist who is passiante about her career.

Dave M. from Lake Balboa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to see Dr. Refoa for over 20 years. for anyone to command that kind of loyalty is a testament to their virtue at what they do.
while i’m a friend after years of caring and wonderful service, i am not a padded review. i’m a self-supporting artist with a bank account to match, and much needed dental work over the years. i have always had to seek someone i can afford, using insurance, loans, my own bank account and at times charitable help.
despite being one of the top dentists in the business, Dr. Refoa has cared enough to go out of her way to make sure i can afford needed work. i have often searched to see if there were more affordable options, and after checking costs, was moved to see how much she was extending herself to help me afford what she knew i needed done. i’m not advertising her as a discount dentist, but she has always cared and made sure my medical needs were met. i had a front tooth implant put in this last week that had been needed for decades. the cap no longer would stay on, and it was time. the speed and lack of pain, professionalism, all were astonishing. as for me, i am the worst patient, acting like i’m in the infamous scene from ‘Marathon Man’. i was further astounded at how caring empathetic they all were, the doctor handling the extraction and implant, and the assistants. what i didn’t find out until a day later, when Dr. Refoa herself called to ask how i was, was that she had been concerned. not over the procedure, but knowing what a frightened child i am over dentistry. she said she had talked to the doctor involved, and let him know my terror and trepidation (despite having had 2 other implants with her that went well). she had called me to make sure everything had gone well. when i heard she had talked to the doctor about dealing with my nightmare fears, my eyes began to tear. as someone who has the deepest fears of dentistry, and a bank account of extreme modesty, i have nevertheless been well-cared for and served by Dr. Refoa and everyone in her office. i cannot recommend her more highly professionally, or as a caring person.

Nicole B. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


First you walking and to see all this smiles to welcome you from  Hilda(the receptionist) on ………..is already such a big plus in A BUSINESS!!!…………..the energy is already there and then  they gave e emergency apt the day after my call!and this IS not the first time! they know i am  very scare of dentists;and each  staffs  treat me  with respect and so much confidence!.. as a x-vice president of the Beverly hills chamber; working with so may business in Bh all the way to NY…..i have no other way to say “CONGRADULATIONS AND BRVO” to  Dr.  REFOA and here staff! so until then, ;i will see them”ONE TOOTH AT THE TME”  hum……….! NICOLE

Bill B. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a nice office: good/clean atmosphere and professional/friendly staff. The amble practice was able to accommodate full x-rays, a cleaning and cavity-fill all in one appointment: very convenient. Dr. Refoa’s skill-set was evident and excellent: she was able to uncover and correct a few issues before they became medically invasive and cost prohibitive. One small redundancy: They have online check-in but the staff makes you do a medical history again when you visit – so you may want to skip the computer exercise.

Jay S. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


This practice is amazing! State of the art equipment. From the dentist Dr. Janet Refoa to the receptionist Hilda and everyone else that works there, there is always care and consideration in any action. The practice proposed a comprehensive treatment which was partly covered by my insurance, so they arranged a monthly no interest financing and they billed my insurance for me. I experienced no pain, neither in my mouth nor my pocket. I highly recommend this practice to anyone looking for a great dentist and a great dental experience.

Anastasia N. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Refoa is awesome. I first started coming to her when I had a dental emergency, one of my front veneers popped off. Having never seen her before but having been referred to her, I was so happy she came in first thing on her day off to see me and fix my tooth. It looks awesome. Now after coming for well over a year, I don’t hate going to the dentist. She and her team are great, cleanings are painless and they’re all super professional. I highly recommend.
