I joined Yelp just so I could review Dr. Ben Karabell. Easily the best dental experience you can have in the South Bay. I have unfortunately had to see a lot of physicians in my life, and this is the only office I actually look forward to visiting. The whole office has come to feel like family, and I am so grateful that they are in my life. Kathy and Darci in the front office – I don’t even know what to say. They have become a favorite of mine when I’m there, if nothing more than to just have a chat. They work with me a ridiculous amount when it comes to payments, making the most out of my dental insurance, squeezing in appointments, and much more. I genuinely love them. Karen, my hygienist, is amazing. She’s old school, and comes with a wealth of experience. She is always attentive to ongoing issues before I even have to bring them up. She never hesitates to call the Dr. when needed, and I am so looked after by her. My teeth always feel amazing after she is done with me, and I am delighted I have found a hygienist I have been able to stay with for the last 4 years. Dr. Karabell is patient, kind, gentle and informative. I have significant dental issues, and he has never once made me feel rushed out of the chair. He has never made me feel stupid for asking what was quite possibly a stupid question. In fact, there have been times when I am told to come right down because there is a spot in my mouth that is bothering me. Dr. Karabell cares about me, Joey. He cares about my health. He is interested in my well being. Absolutely none of that is feigned. Even when I have had to have some larger work done, and have been fearful, the fears have always proven unfounded. I have never felt a thing with Dr. Karabell, and trust me, I’ve felt many-a-thing at other dentists/periodontists. As long as this practice is practicing, I will never go anywhere else. One final note: Dr. Karabell and staff touch people beyond dentistry. I had a special needs employee at my job, who was also a patient before he moved out of state. After one cleaning, they had something for him. A bag of helpful items that included his own sonicare toothbrush. They go above and beyond. Like I said, it’s truly a family, and you would be re-missed to not give them at LEAST one try. If you need a dentist, why not try a dentist that has views of the ocean, top of the line gentle care, a family atmosphere, and charitable staff To pass on them would really be a loss.

I have never had a better Dentist than Dr. John Shafer. First, Dr. Shafer is the kindest Dentist I ever had. Second, his dentistry is the best there is. He knows what he’s doing and is extremely careful while working on your teeth. He has always fixed me up especially when i had pain. I trust him with all my dental needs. Dr. Shafer is very knowledgeable in dentistry and he does everything with 200% of his effort. Also, his staff is AMAZING. From the moment you walk in, you are welcomed with a greeting and smile. From the receptionist to the dental assistants – you will meet caring and friendly people. I would highly recommend Dr. Shafer and his entire staff to anyone looking for a GREAT Dentist.

Dr Karabelle is nice gentle and a caring Dentist. I truly hated going to the dentist and wasn’t happy with the one I was currently going to. My husband told me to make my next cleaning with his Dentist, Dr Karabelle. I no longer have anxiety going to the dentist. His Entire staff is amazing and actually listens to what you are saying. What Dentist calls in the evening to see how you are doing? Dr Karabelle does!!!

It took me years to find a dentist that I felt comfortable with; even more so one who treats his patients kindly and carefully as Dr. karabell does. He’s efficient, let’s you know what you need to do on your own time to maintain great, healthy teeth, and he does it pain-free! Though I live in the Los Angeles area, making my usual dental trips to Hermosa beach is worth it due to the great treatment and wonderful staff at Dr. Karabell’s dental office. Handsome, efficient, and pain free–never do you get a great combo like this for a dentist!

Dr. Karabell has been my dentist for the last 5 years. He is very good and I have referred multiple people to him over time and all have been very happy. He is very personable and cares about his patients. He also has very friendly staff, including skilled dental hygienists, working at his office. As a bonus, the dentist chairs have a nice view!

The Dr. Karabell team are the “go to” for dentistry in the South Bay. You will not be disappointed. How is the dentistry work there? …outstanding – from fundamental to out of the ordinary needed care! How about the staff? …hard to find a team (so experienced!) around Dr. Karabell that is better and more personable. My family has been going to Karabell Dentistry since the beginning. They ALL truly take care of us, …and will take care of you and your family. …good people!! I highly recommend Karabell Dentistry.

★★★★★

Dr Karabell and staff are the best!, from scheduling appointments to keeping our teeth in good health. My family and I have been seeing Dr Karabell for years. I like that he lives here in our community and like how he has always done a good job of breaking down my options. It’s nice to know when I need a good dentist that  Dr. Karabell and staff are close by.

Mike J. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Karabell and his entire team of professionals are simply the best dental practice I’ve been too. My wife, father and I have been going to Dr. Karabell the last few years, he’s always provided us with the best and most thorough care. His team of hygienists are so gentle and experienced, thanks Karen! If there’s ever a dental issue that needs to be addressed, Dr. Karabell explains all our options in an easy to understand manner and then delivers as promised. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Dr. Karabell for all your general and aesthetic dental needs!

I have always had a very good experience with Dr. Karabell. He is always very professional but down to earth and easy going, treats you like a family memeber. His diagnosis has always been spot on and any work needed was performed with a gentleness that i have only experienced with a few dentists in my life time. The whole staff there are awesome, i would recommend them without hesitation especially if you fear the dentist, Dr.Karabell will put you at ease and change your opinion on dentistry.

Dav J. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

What a great practice! Dr. Karabell really knows what he’s doing…he’s super professional and thorough. I came in for multiple cavity fillings and recently an emergency chipped tooth! He made sure to squeeze me in to take care of my tooth and he did a superb job and took his time to make sure it was perfect! Everyone in his staff is very kind & polite and I always have such a great & pleasant experience. I feel so lucky to have have found his practice in my neighborhood and will continue to go back for all my future dental procedures!

Kryslynn W. from Compton, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Excellent patient care. He eases all my nerves. I come in gripping the chair with nerves and leave relaxed and relieved.  Dr. Karabell is very big on daily flossing! Would recommend him to any one.

Elijah A. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Dr. Karabell and the staff are so incredibly thorough, professional, well mannered, and filled with helpful dental tips; to top it off, you don’t even feel like you are missing out on the south bay vibe when you got the beach view from your dental chair. Highly recommended.

★★★★★

If it wasn’t for Dr. Karabell and his entire staff, I would not have the smile I have today. Period. The wisdom, guidance, patience and perseverance that he has displayed in regard to my oral health is unrivaled by any medical professional I have ever been seen by (& unfortunately that is a lot). His front office staff are one of the delights of my visit, and my hygienist displays genuine care for my well being. They care about me. I’m not just a number. Dr. Karabell is one of the biggest blessings in my life… and yes, I’m talking about my dentist. Throw in an ocean view, and you have no reason not to pay him a visit. Trust me, you won’t regret you did.

Liz F. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

You couldn’t ask for a better dentist and hygienists.  My children had a great experience (what kids have that).  We had a slight billing hiccup, when dr karabell heard about it, called me straight away and all was resolved. The office is spotless, he is charming and he’s a great dentist.  And the magazines are current. He takes pride in his work and the customer service he offers.  That’s not easy to find.

I have been going to Dr. Karabell’s office for years. I have refereed a few people as well and they have all loved the care and service at his office. Their whole process is a very profession and friendly experience. They have been flexible and very good at communication. Most importantly they have provided great dental service.

★★★★★

Dr. Karabell is the best. I’ve been seeing him for over 10 years, well before he had his own dental office. He’s just fabulous. He did an amazing job on my veneers and I have movie star teeth. His manner and demeanor is always pleasant. He’s easy to talk to, like he’s a buddy you’ve known forever. Yet he’s the best dentist I’ve had in the 46 years I’ve been alive, and I’ve gone to many dentists in my day, most not worth the paper their degrees are printed on. I’ve sent my closest friends and family to Dr. K and I highly recommend him to everyone who wants the best dental care with an awesome dentist at an affordable price.

So, I don’t write reviews. I just don’t. I’m not that person. Go ahead… look … i’ll wait. See, nothing. However, for Dr. Karabell, I felt compelled. This page needs more reviews. He isn’t just the best dentist I’ve ever had. It’s not just his employ of the best hygienists I’ve ever had either. It’s not just the best office staff I’ve ever had the pleasure of interacting with. It’s PHYSICALLY the best dental office I’ve ever set foot in. Honestly, who wouldn’t want to stare at the beautiful ocean while you are having your teeth cleaned or having work done? Beat that everyone else ever. But seriously, Dr. Karabell is patient, kind, gentle and informative. I have dental issues for days, and he has never ONCE made me feel rushed out of the chair. He has never made me feel stupid for asking a stupid question. In fact, there have been times when I am told to come right down because there is a spot on my tongue that’s bothering me. He inspected it, told me it looked like a burn, and didn’t even charge me for a visit. What a sweetheart. Yes, I’m a man who calls other men sweethearts. It’s how rad he is! Even when I have had to have some larger work done, and been fearful, the fears have always proven unfounded. I have never felt a thing, and trust me, I’ve felt stuff at other dentists/ periodontists. My hygienist Veronica is amazing. She is always attentive to ongoing issues before I even have to bring them up. She never hesitates to call the Dr. when needed, and I just feel so looked after by her. My teeth always feel amazing after she is done with me, and I am delighted I have found a hygienist I have been able to stay with for 5+ years. Now don’t even get me started on Kathy and Darci in the front office. I don’t even know what to say. I genuinely love them. They have become a favorite of mine when I’m there, if nothing more than to just have a chat. They work with me a ridiculous amount when it comes to payments, making the most out of my dental insurance, squeezing in appointments, and much more. I always look forward to seeing them, and getting their little reminder calls about appointments. The whole office has become like family, and I am so grateful to have found them. Mark my words, as long as this office is in business, I will never go anywhere else. One final note: Dr. Karabell and staff touch people beyond dentistry. I have a special needs employee at my job who was also a patient before he moved out of state. They would give him bus money, starbucks gift cards, and one time even gave me a bag of goodies for him. A bag that included his own sonicare toothbrush. All this is totally unnecessary behavior for a dental practice to engage in, but it’s important for me to note. They go above and beyond. Like I said, it’s truly a family, and you would be re-missed to not give them at LEAST one try. If you need a dentist, why not try a dentist that has views of the ocean, top of the line gentle care, a family atmosphere, and charitable staff To pass on them would really be your loss.

I love this place!! They are on their game when it comes to their Covid protocol. They made me feel safe and cared for. First time back at a dentist office in many years. I was very nervous to see one again. I was worried about feeling pain in my sensitive areas of my mouth. Also, that they would make me feel like just another person they needed to work on and move on like at previous places I had been to. It was all the contrary, everyone from the secretary to the main top dentist were kind, friendly and thoughtful. I didn’t feel rushed in anyway and they all took the time to hear me out and asked me how I felt at all times. Veronica Jara-Landeros did my cleaning. Veronica had such a great vibe and cared truly for my well-being. She was thoughtful and careful with how I felt in the dentist chair. She checked for any pain and temperature of the water she used. She also was a great educator on what I needed to change to improve my teeth’s health. She explained that I was brushing and flossing way too hard and aggressively. That it was weakening my gums and enamel causing me to have those sensitive areas in my teeth. She took her time to demonstrate to me on what degree I should be flossing and brushing. Crazy that I had never heard of this advice since I met her. I left feeling relieved and happy that I finally found a great dentist office I would look forward to visiting again.

I recently moved to the area and so impressed with everything about this practice! They are really taking extreme measures to stay COVID safe. I was greeted with hand sanitizer and a temperature check. There was no crisscrossing of patients, and everyone wears a face mask (they’ll even provide one if you don’t have!). Dr. Karabell is so knowledgeable and it shows that he genuinely cares for his patients!

★★★★★

Dr. karabell caters to dental chickens like myself. The entire staff gives phenomenal service. I have been under the care of Dr. Shafer/retired of 30 years. It was a smooth transition to work with the new dentistry of Dr. Benjamin Karabell.  I never leave empty-handed the staff always equipped me with tools to use to keep my pearly whites glistening.

John S. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

This was my first time at this dentist. Very nice experience I will definitely be back. The staff is extremely friendly, and the place is clean. Rose did my cleaning she was excellent. And Dr. Karabell was very informative and nice.

Dave C. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I hesitated going back to the dentist after a long absence but this guy… this guy… he is great.  The whole office is welcoming and friendly.  You honestly feel as if their only concern is your well being.  I would give his name to anyone who is looking for a dentist.

The entire staff at Dr. Karabell’s office is awesome and very professional. From the scheduling of appointments to teeth cleaning, dental exams and dental work their attention to detail is underpassed! They currently have protocol in place to minimize exposure and limit the possibility of transmission of the COVID-19 virus and continue to make their patients feel comfortable and welcomed in their office. Dr. Karabell is efficient, caring and very professional when he’s working on dental issues, checking in with you as he’s doing his procedures to make sure you’re comfortable and what he has to do next. I’d recommend Dr. Karabell to anyone in the South Bay who is looking for a dental professional.

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

★★★★★

Excellent dental practice and staff, and Dr. Karabell is a class act with significant experience and a high level of professionalism and caring for his patients. His injections are absolutely painless and his hand skills, work, and attention to detail are impeccable. Highly highly recommend this family friendly dental practice!!

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

★★★★★

Ben and his team are as good as it gets in the world of dentistry!  Knowledgable, friendly, reasonably priced.  Great views from the office. Nice, newly-remodeled office interior with state of the art equipment.  Even got a Starbucks gift card the last time I was in.  Highest recommendation *****

Charlene N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

I had the best experience here! Dr. Karabell was so nice, warm, and comforting. And his dental hygienist is the best I  have ever had! She thought me so much from how to brush my teeth correctly to what type of tooth paste I should be using. She was very thorough and explained everything to me. I can’t believe I’m saying this but I can’t wait till I go back in 6 months for my cleaning!

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

I am incredibly grateful to Dr. Karabell and his team for their beautiful dental work, warm personalities, and inviting environment. I chipped my front tooth/crown at 6PM on Thursday night and looked absolutely crazy. After searching for an emergency dentist (most places close at 5PM), I came across Dr. Karabell. He and his Dental Assistant, Beatrice, saw me that evening at 7PM and got me a temporary crown in less than an hour.  No pain, no need for numbing injections, super easy-peasy.  This is exactly what I needed to help hold me over so I could go to work the next day without a chipped front tooth. I am so thankful that they were able to help me (I had already been to another office that was unable to assist and tried to schedule me for 2 days later). The front desk staff member was so kind, too!  The office is clean and has nice little samples/goodies out front. THANK YOU THANK YOU many times over Dr. Karabell and team!  I will definitely refer you guys!!!!  Sending so much love and blessings your way!

Dr. Karabell’s office runs like a well oiled machine. The staff are ALWAYS friendly, helpful, and attentive. Dr. Karabell is gentle, but quite skilled at what he does, so procedures have been pain-free. (That’s a definite plus!) He also seems to take a genuine interest in his patients and is easy to talk to. Lastly, everyone in the office takes care to follow the correct protocols so we stay healthy. I would highly recommend Dr. Karabell and his staff for all of your dental needs.

I decided to switch to Dr. Karabell after a negitive experience at another local dentist.  My neighbor told me that Dr. Karabell was the best!! She was not lying. Best experience I have ever had at a dentist. He did not try to up-sale me. The hygienist awesome. He was genuine with a great chairside manner and everyone in the office was so nice.  I have found my dentist for life!
