“Dr. Hekmat is terrific! He has been my family dentist for many years, not only taking care of me–but my wife, sister, mother, brother-in-law and mother-in-law, too! Warm smiles and compassionate, skillful and concerned care from Dr. Hekmat and his staff. He’s very calm and really relaxes you when he’s working. Visits to his office are always like visiting a member of the family! Highly recommend!

I found Dr. Hekmat to be extremely caring, and honest. He did a great job with my crown and night guard. I would recommend him highly. Even though his office is on the highest floor of a Wilshire Blvd. high rise and I bet the rent is very high, he charged me very reasonably

I cannot recommend Dr. Hekmat strongly enough. I have problem teeth (countless cavities and SIX root canals!) and had been struggling to find a trustworthy, conservative and insightful dentist I felt comfortable with. I first visited Dr. Hekmat for his opinion on a tooth that had recurring pain, after hearing rave reviews from friends and family who had been his long-time patients. I had already visited two other dentists and my endodontist – none of whom could figure out the cause, since I had already had a root canal on that tooth. Dr. Hekmat took extensive x-rays and asked me a ton of questions to try to pinpoint possible causes – not only for this one tooth, but the recurring dental challenges I was experiencing. He suggested that it might be my bite as well as an old root canal that had not been completed correctly. He adjusted my mouth guard as well as evened out a couple of my crowns to adjust my bite. I started having relief just a few days later. He continued to monitor me bi-monthly over the next six months and only then did he suggest that we move forward with seeing an endodontist to consider redoing the root canal. The endo he recommended was phenomenal and he successfully retreated my original root canal. Throughout the process, I have continued to receive phone calls from Dr. Hekmat, checking in on my pain, progress and any concerns. I have now been a patient for almost two years and see Dr. Hekmat and his wonderful staff three times a year for cleanings. His bedside manner, compassion and overall knowledge and experience is unparalleled by any other professional I have visited.

I’ve been going to this dentist for over 10 years now and he’s a great dentist. Doesn’t try to scam you or anything, and fixes a problem when he spots one. Had to get an emergency extraction for a wisdom tooth with a deep cavity, and the entire procedure took about 10 minutes with NO adverse side effects. Very clean office as well, and the receptionist Sandy is AMAZING!

Dr. Hekmat is awesome! I have had soooooo much dental work all my life and I can say he is absolutely the best. I don’t know how he does it, but I never feel the shots! Very gentle and soothing, which has been so important with having major work done like crowns and bridges. Plus he’s got amazing staff at both offices – Downtown LA and Westwood – so you have lots of options when scheduling. You’ll never want to go to another dentist after him.

I love Dr Hekmat and his entire staff (hi, Sandy)! My family and I have been patients of Dr Hekmat for over 20 years. I have heard how some other dentists make you get services like root canals when the service isn’t really needed. Dr Hekmat is the most honest dentist you can find. He will never recommend any services that are not required and always offers the best service ever. Plus, he really cares for his patients! I broke my front tooth a few years ago on the weekend –I called to leave a voicemail for Sandy (the office manager) to get me the first appointment on Monday. Within 30 minutes, Dr Hekmat called me back himself and offered to come in on that day to fix my tooth!! I have recommended Dr Hekmat to friends, co-workers, and extended family — and each one of them have thanked me for it!

Friday afternoon before a holiday weekend, my dentist is out of town and I have a dental emergency. My dentist referred me to Dr. Hekmat.  I called and they told me to come in. I am not good with change and was hesitant to go but I did. The minute I walked through the door the office staff made me feel like an old friend. They were absolutely lovely!  When I met Dr. Hekmat, I knew I was in good hands. He was so gentle and efficient!  Thank you for taking such good care of me!

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


I went to see Dr. Hekmat for a 2nd opinion on recommendation of a friend. It is so difficult to find a dentist that doesn’t just do procedures to line their pocket book. Dr. Heckmat had nothing to gain from me yet he took his time to give me his opinion free of charge. I went to see him not only once but he also offered another free follow up appointment which I took advantage of. I insisted on compensating him for his time but they didn’t take my money. But more importantly than the no charge was that I felt in honest and experienced hands. Not only did he save me thousands of dollars and the pain of a root canal, he also thoroughly explained things and treated me with the utmost care and respect. A dentist with great experience, strong ethics, value and just a selfless good human being. Although he is not in my neighborhood I won’t hesitate to drive his way for my next dental exam. Thank you

Dr. Hekmat is the most companionate dentist I have ever had. He did an emergency root canal surgery in non-office hours, and followed up the next day to ask me how I was feeling. He has been my dentist for 25 years, and I recommend him highly.

First and foremost, let me begin by saying I have a severe dental phobia. As an adult its especially embarrassing because it isn’t something I can control. I have been asked to find other dentists numerous times due to it. Dr. Hekmat Kamyar is a phenomenal dentist. His patience and tolerance is what keeps me coming. He has done two of my root canals, dental cleanings, xrays, I mean the works. I can say with confidence and certainty that I would never go any where else. His bed side manner is above par and his team is supportive and pleasant to deal with. He’s just so good at what he does! I recommend him to the fullest!

I could’ve sworn I had raved about Dr. Hekmat long ago.. I’ve been going to Dr. Hekmat since either 2013 or 2015 and I send EVERYONE i know to him. I honestly cant imagine going to anyone else dentist. His entire staff is superb. Their bedside manner is genuinely the best coming here feels like visiting family- and I have a SEVERE and painfully embarrassing dental phobia so that says a lot. He has two locations so if you’re in DTLA you should definitely make him your dentist.

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


Dr. Hekmat is clearly an expert in the field of dentistry.  He is professional, efficient, and kind.  I had a dentist I loved for 20 years and when he retired I was heartbroken.  I searched for 6 years for a dentist of the same caliber and I am so happy I found Dr Hekmat.  I have had a few root canals, an implant, and several crowns and fillings, so I definitely know what I’m talking about!  His staff is topnotch too!!

I have been going to Dr. Hekmat for over 22 years now and even when I moved down to Orange County 12 years ago, I still did not change dentists…why? Because he is simply the best. He is honest, reliable, and does a fantastic job. I got my veneers done by him years ago and they look not only great but have lasted as long as they have with no problems whatsoever. He is not a typical dentist that tells you to get work done that you do not need. Few years ago I asked him to bleach my teeth and he said: “No, your teeth are white enough. There is no need to make them whiter”. Most other dentist would not only do it but encourage it, even if you don’t really need it! I know I can always call him if there is an emergency, I know when I go to him he does ONLY what needs to be done, and I know he would never overcharge me. What else do you expect from your dentist but being good at what he does and be honest! Thank you Dr. Hekmat for being such a great person AND dentist.

Dr. Hekmat is the most honest dentist ever!! I started going to him last year and he is the sweetest! He won’t ever suggest to do any additional work on you just to make an extra buck. I had previously taken my son to a children’s dentist who insisted my son needed crowns on two of his teeth, saying that the cavities were too big and a filling would just fall out soon after. When I took my son to Dr. Hekmat he said there was no need for crowns, and that fillings would be just fine. It’s been several months and the fillings are still there, haven’t fallen out at all. I love going to a place knowing the doctor is being honest and wont take advantage of you as a patient. His staff is also super nice and welcoming. Sandy the receptionist is courteous and friendly and always has a smile on her face. Aracely and Nathalie (the dental assistants) are gentle and very patient. Even though I dislike the sounds all the dental equipment makes, everyone makes me feel comfortable and I always know I’m in good hands when I’m there.

I’ve been going to Dr. Hekmat for years now. He’s one of the most amazing dentists I’ve been to–very professional and has done an amazing job at keeping my teeth up to shape! My nephew who is 5, has had such a difficult time with going to the dentist (will cry and scream and won’t let them work on his cavities!), so my sister decided to try Dr. Hekmat (she’s also a patient of his). Although he does not specialize in children, he was able to work in such a calm manner and my nephew was totally receptive to him, and let him take care of his activities. My family and I are still in awe at how he was able to do this. If you’re looking for an amazing dentist, do yourself a favor and go to Dr. Hekmat–you can’t go wrong. Also–has one of the most friendliest office staff I’ve ever seen. Sandy, the office manager, is just the best–so caring, professional, and simply amazing. Always makes sure to take care of everything for you.

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


Dr. Hekmat and his team are true professionals. He is kind and always has time to answer ALL of my questions and concerns. I began vi sting him after a a friend referred to me several years ago and I have not visited any other dentists since getting work done with him because he continuously provides me and my family with excellent work. I have had a root canal, crowns, bonding, whitening and removal of amalgam fillings with him and I could not be happier with his work. He is also totally available for emergencies, something other doctors shirk at. I was on my way to LAX when my front tooth (it was being prepped for a root canal) totally came off, I panicked, called him and drove myself to his office within a hour he had me all patched up. He never tries to sell you anything, he and his staff know my name and always make me feel welcome and calm the anxiety that comes with getting dental work done.
