Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Howard D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kathy Zahedi and her staff are the best! If you are reading this, contemplating having dental implants and feeling a bit nervous, I am writing to reassure you. Go for it! I had one of those flipper false tooth gadgets for quite a few years, and never liked it. It was always catching food and needing a nightly soak. Ugh. I wasn’t sure about taking the plunge. Then I cracked another tooth on an orange pit, and that was it. I decided to have three implants all at the same time! It was much easier than I expected. The results: I now have three perfectly shaped new teeth, held in place by magic titanium screws. It’s good to be alive in the 21st century when such modern miracles are possible. I can’t say enough good things about this wonderful dentist and her superlative team. Thank you!

I’ve known Kathy outside her dental practice, and because of her gentle and kind nature, I recently decided to change dentists and give her a try. Her sweet nature carries through in her practice and it shows in her friendly and happy staff and her satisfied patients. I dreaded yesterday’s appointment, as I only have bad memories of getting fillings as a child and how uncomfortable, and often times painful, they were. With Kathy, not only did I not feel the shots but I felt zero discomfort during the drilling and filling procedure. I’m so happy with my new dentist and I have no intentions of leaving her. By the way, Kathy’s office is beautiful, immaculate and professional. Once you get inside and sit in that chair, waiting for Kathy, you’ll be amazed with the gorgeous views all around.

I called last minute because I was having bad gum/tooth pain and they were able to squeeze me in and even stayed later to make sure I was taken care of. The office is beautiful, the staff is very nice and friendly, and the dentist did a great job at resolving my issues. I highly recommend Dr. Zahedi and Dr. Grace for those looking for an exceptional dentist!

Ive been coming to dr zahedi for over 15 years. She and her staff are great. She cares about me. She never does work that does not need to be done. She uses the best labs and the times i need a crown, it comes out perfact the first time. Great dentist and great staff.

All the staff and doctors are amazing. They sincerely care about their patients. I moved to the valley but I am willing to drive all the way to Santa Monica because of the great care I receive there!

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


Dr. Zahedi and staff are fantastic! I have had sensitive teeth and chronic dental problems my whole life. I have struggled to find a dentist who is gentle and sensitive to my anxiety, but who also does exactly what is needed, and does it well. My entire family goes to her and is always there for us when we need her. She is wonderful about being flexible with our crazy schedules and you will never feel like she is rushing through treatments to make it to the next guest. The whole staff is patient and very nice. You will not be disappointed. I promise!

As a patient of Dr. Zahedi for over a decade, I’ve come to appreciate that she is a kind-hearted person and perfectionist as a dentist. She confesses to loving her work. In addition to her caring and expertise, Dr. Zahedi takes advantage of the most up-to-date technologies to ensure the patient’s comfort and health. An aspect of this attention to the patient’s comfort is having a root-canal specialist, Dr. Fahid, in the same dental office.

I have been treated by Dr. Zahedi for an extensive amount of dental work, including removing all amalgam from my mouth and getting several crowns. Dr. Zahedi is an excellent, intelligent and skilled dentist. She is very lovely, gentle and extremely caring in everything she does. She makes every effort to make the experience as positive as it can be, accommodating whatever concerns come up. Her entire staff is also excellent, very skilled, kind and helpful. I highly recommend this practice!

Dr. Zahedi and her staff are a highly skilled, compassionate and professional team. I have a long dental history and approach a new dentist with some trepidation. But I felt immediately at ease with Dr. Zahedi and her team: they talked through my history, listened to my concerns, and outlined a treatment plan that feels holistic and well informed.

Karen Share (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zahedi and her entire staff are terrific. My daughter and I are both patients and we are both very happy with all the dental work she has done. My daughter has had some complicated issues to treat and Dr. Zahedi could not have been more caring and compassionate. I have had several different dental procedures done all with good results. Her staff, including the front desk and assistants, are all friendly and professional.

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


My first experience with Dr. Zahedi’s office was years ago when I broke one of my back molars late one afternoon and didn’t have a current dentist.Someone from my work recommended her office and later came to fifnd out that many of my coworkers go there. I called her office after hours with a message explaining my situation and much to my surprise I promptly recieved a call back, without me even being a patient there, and asked me if I needed immediate attention. I told them I wasn’t in pain or discomfort at that moment, and I was assured they could see the folowing day. Finding and going to a dentist has never been easy for me. I am a total dental chicken and hadn’t been to the dentist for a number of years because of my general fear of all dentists. Upon entering the office, and then the ever fearful dentist chair, they greeted me with a very friendly and welcoming reception. They took the time to explain everything and to make me comfortable. I joked that they must hate patients like me but they took away the fear and embarrasssment I felt when I first walked though that door.

Excellent service. Dr Zahedi and her staff are wonderful. The atmosphere was very pleasant and I am very pleased with the service. Dr Zahedi you are the best!

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


Dr Zahedi and her entire staff go above and beyond to ensure your experience is nothing less than exceptional. From the moment you walk in the room you’re greeted with a warm smile from Gail and it continues throughout your dental journey. I’ve referred several friends and colleagues to her office and they too are equally as impressed. OH! and the view is pretty amazing too. You won’t regret trying it out 🙂

Kimberly Petrick (Source: Google)


This is my first time encountering her and I must say, simply put, she is wonderful. Dr. Zahedi is attentive, informative and professional. I’m confident that she will make the best decisions individually tailored for me. Thank you for a wonderful first experience!

Camille L. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience at Dr. Zahedi’s dental office was hands down one of the best I’ve ever had. The office has most of the latest dental technologies available on the market. I was thoroughly impressed with the clinical and administrative staff. Everyone was knowledgeable and friendly. Gail, the office manager/treatment coordinator was clear and concise with assisting me with my financial responsibility. Dr. Zahedi and her care team made me feel welcome and heard regarding all my dental concerns. I would absolutely recommend Dr. Zahedi’s dental office. They offer a variety of dental specialists for your convenience i.e. endodontist, periodontist, and oral surgeon. I didn’t have to go to several offices to accomplish my dental goals.

Kathy and her staff are always very thorough in explaining procedures/treatments and are very professional, quality products always. I’ve been going there for about ten years now (2008-2018). Even though I live now in OC, I’d still rather go to Santa Monica to see Kathy as my Dentist.

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


To say I hated the dentist  in my case was an understatement, but Kathy was the exception  to the rule.  She has single handedly  transformed my experience with dental  work. Her kind, professional and exceptional  approach sets her apart and is the reason my family and I drive across town to book an appointment.  She is easily the best dentist in the city and makes each of her patients  feel and look great. 5 stars!!!

George Acevedo (Source: Google)


This is the best dental office I have ever been to! The whole staff is so caring and professional, they take the time to understand any issues you’re having and don’t do anything rash. In my experience this is rare, so often doctors throw out solutions with out thinking of other repercussions. If you’ve had unpleasant dental experiences in the past, issues with your teeth, or even if you need routine care, I highly recommend them!

Gigi B. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Kathy Zahedi, DDS & Associates !!!! I needed new Dentures and wanted quality work and an honest out of pocket cost.  Because of past experience with Dentists, I am extremely cautious.  I am very happy with my new teeth and the whole process I went through to get them !!!   Everyone working there is friendly and professional.  You will be glad you found this place, I know I am.   Thank you again,  Gigi

Cade D. from Pleasanton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Zahedi and her amazing staff are some of the best dental professionals I’ve ever experienced. They made me feel comfortable and welcome as soon as I stepped in the office. I  will always refer Dr. Zahedi to anyone who needs advice on where to get dental work done.

What an amazing dentist! I have been going to Dr. Zahedi for a very long time. I have referred many people to her practice and they all love her. I think what is pretty extraordinary, is the fact that she has always been extremely gentle and caring and I have never been in pain. The second thing I would mention, she is a perfectionist. She really takes the time to make sure every detail is done correctly. Lastly her staff are always sweet and fun.

Eamon Jafari (Source: Google)


Dr. Kathy and her staff are amazing! Everyone is so sweet and willing to go above and beyond to assist. I went there to fix a cavity, which she did without issue. The technology she uses at her office is definitely cutting edge too and makes dentist appointments as painless as possible. The view from the patients window is beautiful too, so it’s easy to ignore any potential pain—usually the biggest hurdle with going to the dentist. I’d definitely recommend her to others and have already recommended her to several of my friends and family. Thank you again!!

Mindi Rivin (Source: Google)


Dr Zahedi and her staff are the best. I was extremely phobic of the dentist before seeing Dr Zahedi. She made me feel safe and at ease with her calm and professional demeanor. Now going to the dentist is a great experience- and my teeth look fantastic. I highly recommend her and her excellent staff!

Danny C. from Upland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had a lot of extensive work done and needs to be done still.  I must say other dentist have had a hard time with me because I don’t get numb very easy.  My pain tolerance is very low!  I was in a lot of pain when I first contacted Dr. Kathy Zahedi.  She was highly recommended by a friend.  I have been coming to her since that day.  She is very gentle, friendly, and very professional.  I highly recommend her and her team!  I have seen two different oral higentist, an oral surgeon, and a root canal specialist.  All have been very professional and friendly…but most importantly, they have been very caring and gentle.  They will work with you if you can’t pay everything up front…as this is my case.  HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!!!

Always a professional and caring experience at this dental office. Dr. Zahedi and her staff are the best! They’ve been taking care of me for over 20 years. I wouldn’t even think of going anywhere else for my dental care.

Peggyanne McClellan (Source: Google)


Everyone at this office is so nice! Dr. Kathy Zahedi is amazing and everyone is so patient and really make the dental experience easy and enjoyable!

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


I have been a patient at this dental office for decades and can only say they are the best!  Dr. Zahedi is a wonderful, kind, caring dentist and I always feel I’ve been well cared for.  The office is run with extreme professionalism and even if they are running late (sometimes emergencies happen), they will work with you and try their best to make it up to you.  I have had everything from crowns and fillings to root canals, and have never had a bad experience. Like I said, I’ve been a patient of Dr. Zahedi’s for a long time and have recommended her to many friends, who have all experienced the same care and quality work.  I have also been a long time patient of Sue (the dental hygienist) who is also great!  Nobody likes going to the dentist, but the staff at this office all try to make it the best experience possible.

Very pleasant and relaxed office and staff. Friendly and professional. Knowledgeable, listened to my concerns and current (up to date) dental practices (not always the case). Dr. Zahedi is in sync with my dental needs and never shrugged at any of my questions or concerns.

Shayan Zahedi (Source: Google)


Very friendly staff and makes going to the dentist easy and fun. Kathy is super helpful and is an expert in what she does. I’d highly recommend going to her if you are looking for a dentist

Lee Harris (Source: Google)


I recently needed a crown on a molar tooth. My friend told me that Dr. Zahedi was good. So I gave her a try. She did a masterful job and managed every step. Dr. Zahedi was very concerned that I was comfortable throughout the entire process. I was also given some products on my way out to manage any soreness. There was none. Her staff was professional and explained everything so I had no questions or concerns. I highly recommend Dr, Zahedi!

Vernita C. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been searching for a good dentist for the past year . I moved to santa monica and found Dr.Zahedi through a friend . I am extremely happy with the staff and Dr.Zahedi .Her work was excellent and no pain Everyone  in the office is caring and attentive .Overall I had a great dental experience.

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


The most soothing, relaxing experience I’ve ever had at the dentist. I grew up being traumatized by dental visits, so going to the dentist after 6 years away wasn’t an exciting prospect. That said, Kathy Zahedi and her staff were incredible from the get-go. The office is beautiful, has a gorgeous view of Santa Monica, and everyone who works there is friendly and kind. Dr. Zahedi herself is so gentle and reassuring; even though my teeth are a mess and she gave me a mile-long list of work that needs to be done, she did so in a clear and empathetic manner. I never felt patronized or rushed. Honestly, the best and most calming/reassuring health care experience I’ve ever had. Highly recommended.

This office was great! The staff was kind and Dr. Zahedi was caring. I really appreciated that she took the time to listen to me, explain everything and had a nurturing temperament. I would recommend to my family and friends.

Sam Rath (Source: Google)


Dr. Zahedi is an amazingly skilled dentist. The general dentistry here is great but Dr. Zahedi truly sets herself apart from other dental offices when it come to procedures like dental implants, crowns, veneers and other cosmetic dentistry. I highly recomend her and her staff.

Greg Elliot (Source: Google)


Dr. Zahedi is my dental angel. After years of suffering at the hands of other dentists, I now feel well taken care of. She’s conscientious, caring, and almost nothing gets by her. I’ve moved since she became my dentist, but the drive back to Santa Monica is worth it. She’s the only dentist for me.


Dr. Kathy Zahedi has delivered compassionate dental care to residents of Santa Monica area for 20 years. During that time, she has built a dental practice with one goal in mind: To care for all of your dental concerns in one place with a team of specialists dedicated to delivering gentle, painless, and top-notch dental services. Dr. Zahedi has also completed a residency in dentistry at UCLA. She is also certified by IAOMT, to practice biological dentistry with a certification in safe ammalgam removal. At the same time, Dr. Zahedi believes in using all the high tech methods available to dentists such as CT scans, digital x-rays and lasers. Dr. Zahedi and her associates consider their patients to be extended family. Patients return that consideration by frequently recommending our dentists to their friends and neighbors. Our practice was originally established in the early '70s by Dr. Robert Weinstein and it has grown to where it is today solely by the kind referrals of our patients. They trust us with the care of their friends and family and loved ones because they know that we will work very hard to help them achieve their healthiest and most beautiful smile and that we will make sure they have the most relaxing, the most painless, and the most gentle dental experience. I am a general dentist and a children's dentist whose love of nature and peaceful spirit guide the practice. After graduating from the prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry at the top of my class, I completed a postgraduate internship in advanced education and general dentistry. I am deeply grounded in the Santa Monica community and is honored to be on the Advisory Board of Face Forward, Inc., an organization that helps battered women recover from their physical and emotional abuse. I wanted to be a dentist from my early teens. That was my goal. I graduated from high school as the class valedictorian, then went on to study as a pre-dental student at UCLA majoring in biochemistry. I was thrilled to next enter the prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry, where I graduated at the top of my class, and then continued a post graduate internship in advanced education and general dentistry. I have had the great pleasure of running my dental practice in Santa Monica for nearly two decades. I feel blessed to have such wonderful patients and I continue to try to provide them with the highest quality of painless dentistry possible. To me my patients are my extended family. I treat each one with the utmost attention, care, and compassion and have made sure that all my staff and specialists have the same philosophy. Our office has a uniquely relaxed and warm and efficient atmosphere--which our patients often remark on. This is the kind of practice I always envisioned.
