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


I LOVE Dr. Spillman! I can’t go to any dentist. I don’t like going to the dentist. I wish I didn’t have to go the dentist at all – but as it turns out, I need a lot of dental work. And I need a dentist I can TRUST and one who is very gentle, confident, skilled, and communicative to keep me calm and actually IN THE CHAIR while the work gets done. Dr. Spillman is all of these things and more. She is great at her job – she teaches me about my teeth and discusses the best course of action for my dental care. She puts me at ease and cares about my level of comfort during any procedure, plus she knows what she’s doing and gets it done with precision and expertise. I feel so grateful to have found a dentist who is supremely professional and committed to excellent dental work AS WELL AS one who CARES about me as a person and makes the whole experience of going to the dentist so much more enjoyable. I highly recommend Dr. Spillman – you’ll be so happy that your search for a great dentist is over

Dr.Spillman is the best. She is gentle, thorough, honest, professional & does an amazing job!! I had two front teeth done by her & now I am back to smiling again. No pain or discomfort during or after. So thankful I got a referral to see her

I was with her predecessor, Dr. Teri Gibson, for 33 years.  I was crushed when Dr. Gibson retired.  I felt safe and genuinely cared for, which is why I stayed with her.  Fortunately, she could not have selected a better practice partner and successor than Dr. Spillman.  Dr. Spillman is thoughtful, caring, professional, and reassuring.  Here’s to the next 33 years!

Dr. Spillman’s office is very welcoming and relaxed, and her staff is friendly and professional.  Dr. S is truly gifted with her hands, her knowledge and her manner. She knew that I was anxious, anticipating pain, and she went out of her way to make sure I was comfortable.  She described what was coming next, even suggesting that I close my eyes so I didn’t see the syringe.  When it was all over, having felt nothing, I said to her that I have had manicures that were more painful!  My children have ‘graduated’ from their pediatric dentist and I will definitely bring them here.  What a find, right in the heart of Westwood, West Los Angeles

Dr. Spillman is as good as it gets.  I screened and reviewed 45 doctors (not kidding) each one with have some billing scam or trying to get you to do treatments that were not needed.  Just as I was about to give up, I stumbled on her I decided to give her a shot.  One of the best choices I have ever made. The last dentist that I had seen for 3 years did such a bad job with cleaning that I wound up developing periodontic decay which caused my teeth to start moving.  Despite the rather large gap, my former dentist wanted to do bonding to fill the gap. Dr. Spillman correctly identified the problem and made a point of explaining and showing what had happened.  I wound up needing two gum surgeries, a year of orthodontics, 3 cavities filmed and a new crown. She is seriously awesome.  Bringing my 80 year old pop to see her now too. Thanks Dr. S!!!  xoxoxoxo!

As a kid, I had no qualms about going to the dentist. That has changed! As an adult, it is not something I enjoy or want to deal with. I must say that after visiting Dr. Spillman, my adult anxieties about the dentist chair are gone. Dr. Spillman is extremely patient, gentle, honest, and thorough. Dr. Spillman takes the time to discuss the condition of your teeth with you. She will decipher what treatments or procedures are urgent vs. those that she would like to monitor over time. I feel at ease with Dr. Spillman and the entire office staff. They are not after your money, just good oral health!

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


If you are looking for an amazingly knowledgeable dentist that will treat you with the most respect and care, Dr. Spillman is your choice. This is a small office with huge character and extremely nice staff. I had the pleasure of visiting this office twice and each time I was amazed about the level of care provided by at most professionalism, kindness, and exceptional concern for my comfort

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


Dr. Spillman is the best dentist I’ve ever had.  She’s skilled, kind and super personable.  Had two fillings today and there was zero pain.  She has a special technique and gave me the shot today without me feeling it…not even a pinch.  What I like best is that since she knows I have dental anxiety she goes out of her way to make sure I’m feeling o.k. before, during and after the procedure.  She gives lots of explanations of what she is doing and why. A big plus is that she doesn’t try to up-sell.  I’ve had plenty of dentists before that want to do unnecessary cosmetic procedures.  She just wants your teeth to be healthy.  But, she can also make them pretty if you want…ask the bonding on my front tooth!  Everyone in the office is also super welcoming and highly competent.  Street parking can be tight, but there is a parking structure around the corner from the office and on Lindbrook Dr. that has parking ($6.50).  The restaurants in the complex downstairs from her office are good (I think its Italian Express) if you’re hungry after the appointment

Dr. Spillman is the type of dentist that you would send your entire family to (in fact, much of my family goes to her!) She is beyond knowledgeable, offers conservative treatment, and makes the process soothing and comfortable. My 25 year old bonding was yellow and had a cavity. Most other dentists wanted to do veneers but she just quickly and painlessly replaced my bonding and matched it to my teeth. It looks amazing! She is honest and very hard working and will only do the work that you need. She has a boutique practice with incredibly talented and dedicated staff as well. She has golden hands!

Stephanie S. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Spillman is an excellent dentist.  She is thorough, gentle, patient, and knowledgeable.  She makes going to the dentist easy and my teeth are in excellent shape thanks to her.  Although I do not live close by, Dr. Spillman makes the long drive worth while!

Bob Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m glad my search to find the perfect dentist is over. Dr. Spillman and the office manager, Kathy, make you feel comfortable and right at home as soon as you walk in. The staff is professional, courteous, and treat you with utmost care. Dr. Spillman is very caring and attentive and exceptionally knowledgable. With her gentle touch, you will feel at ease during any treatment. She is honest and trustworthy, and will never push you into having any unnecessary treatments. I will definitely recommend Dr. Spillman and her staff to everyone looking for an ideal dental clinic

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


When dealing with a dental practice, being welcomed, treated and cared for by a professional and very courteous office and staff is crucial. Dr. Spillman, her front desk personnel, hygienists and dental assistant provide exactly that – a professional, caring, personable and most importantly informative atmosphere. Whether I get a teeth cleaning or a filling, everybody always ensures my comfort, keeping me updated on what is being or needs to be done providing any explanation I require. I appreciate the smaller, personal office, where I am not a number but a person, people know me when I arrive and the goal is the best care, not getting it done the fastest, while putting each patient at ease. Dr. Spillman ensures my comfort and that I am aware of what procedure is necessary; she is attentive to detail and provides follow-up care. My dental cleaning sessions reflect the same competency and attention to detail. Side note – ensure you come early enough to adjust for UCLA traffic and find street parking; call the office if you have an issue; they are able to make a recommendation close by. And –  you might enjoy a stroll or bite in beautiful Westwood village after your appointment!

I was recommended to Dr. Karina Spillman and I was more than impressed. She is not only highly caring and well trained, she takes such interest in the patient’s needs and is highly expert in keeping as much of the patient’s tooth when doing a crown. Dr. Spillman is the best dentist I have ever had and I refer my family and friends to her. Laurie Wynn Golden ps: I had no pain during the procedure and the crown is perfectly sealed to the gum line. Need I say more
