How can a visit to the Dentist be warm and pleasant?  It is when you visit Dr. Katz’s office.  We go back over some 30 years!  I’ve always been afraid of going to the Dentist, so I searched long and hard for a Dentist I could trust.  When I first visited his office…a long time ago, he immediately put me at ease.  I needed extensive work, he informed me of what I needed and what he was going to do.  His personality, and professionalism let me know I could trust him. And his staff treated me like they had known me for years.  Today I am still his patient.  The warm and friendly environment has never changed even though he’s a leader in his field.  The staff is friendly and patient and they still make me laugh.  His work is excellent.  I need some work done on my teeth but I’m not shaking in my boots, I know I’ve got the best of the best.

I first went to see Dr Katz after a friend recommended him. What I really like about him is that you get the feeling he sees you as a patient, not a cash cow, which is the feeling I get way too often from other dentists. It’s the same feeling I get at Jiffy Lube. I go for one thing and then they find a dozen problems that need “immediate” attention, and when you don’t follow their advice and 2 years with no problems pass by you get the feeling they see you with the word “sucker” written on your forehead. Same with dentists, but not with Dr Katz. He always gives me an informative rundown of what needs immediate attention, what can wait, and all my different options and their possible outcome. I have never had problems with his work, which is why I keep coming back.

Hey hey Dr. K!  Doctor Katz is the man. he has a great touch and a clean office and a friendly staff. Although I have NEVER had a cavity in my life, Dr.Katz cleans and admires my teeth. They are that good. When you have perfect teeth, you want a perfect dentist and Dr. Richard Katz is perfect. And you have to love the architecture of the building. The only dentist I will EVER use. Sincerely, Robert Vaughn Herndon IS Black Sunshine.

These guys are AMAZING!!!!  Kindest staff ever!  I went in for a deep cleaning.  I was really dreading it, as all of the cleanings I have had in the past were very painful.  Not this time.  The hygienist was very gentle, and took her time.  They even gave me a complimentary bottle of mouthwash.  Highly recommend! Thank you Katz Dental Group!!

Had a serious gum/ toothache but hadn’t been to a dentist in a few years as my last was always trying to upsell me and I just stopped going as my teeth were fine for years. Until they weren’t. I read Dr. Katz’s reviews here and decided to give him a try. Went in today and he checked out the situation. Could have upsold me easily, but said “I think you just need a good cleaning to resolve this gum issue, let’s schedule that and then watch it”. Didn’t even charge me for the evaluation. Very impressed him. I have a new dentist.

Jared K. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr Katz for almost two years because I was working in the area. I always had a great experience here and they took good care of me. It was always easy to make an appointment and get in and out in the morning before work. I even got their teeth whitening treatment and it worked great. I recommend if you are looking for a great dentist in the area.

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


I’ve been going to Dr. Katz for 25 years!  I honestly can’t remember how I found him.The office is very clean and his staff and hygienists and warm and friendly.  I recently had four 25-year-old crowns replaced and though it was a long process, Dr. Katz did a great job and always kept me informed about what was going on. They always give you a free toothbrush after a cleaning, and I love their pink building with a giant tube of toothpaste on the front! Nice waiting area, magazines and free coffee.

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


Dr. Katz has been my dentist for over 27 years. (We were just kids back then.) Before I found him, I tried four other dentists, but one visit to Dr. Katz resulted in a life-long relationship.  My smile says it all. Thank you Dr. Katz !

Rachel S. from Hollywood, FL (Source: Yelp)


Came here today for a cavity. Hardly had to wait before being brought to a chair,  and had a speedy X-ray. Hardly felt the anesthesia needle. Dr. Katz was entertaining and the cavity was filled and work was completed before I could start to get anxious. I felt no pain!  hope I don’t need any more dental work again, but if I do, I’ll come back here.

Pam T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Katz and to Dr. Parsons for decades! They are kind and wonderful dentists.  I wouldn’t be still going there after all these years if I didn’t think so.  I have had all kinds of work done over the years and my entire family has gone and still goes to them. I would highly recommend this dental office.  Natalie does a great job with her cleanings, too!  Love them.

Michael G. from Chestnut Hill, MA (Source: Yelp)


I decided that a wanted a new smile. Natural looking with white teeth. I had seen several smiles that Dr. Katz had made and I made my decision. I travelled from Boston to have Dr. Katz make my smile. I had 18 crowns done-8 on the top and 10 on the bottom. It took several visits over several weeks. Even the temps looked perfect before the permanent crowns were made.  Dr Katz is a perfectionist, he s an artist and he made each visit comfortable and pleasant. I am THRILLED  with my new smile! Compliments from everyone on how great and natural they look. Thank you Dr. Katz! You are the best!

Chris K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently had a complete upper made by Dr. Katz. It’s perfect, I love it, the color is just right and Dr. Katz was really nice. I’m squeemish around the dentist and he put me right at ease and made me feel comfortable. I also had my teeth cleaned by his hygienist, she was super sensitive and super nice. Last but certainly not least, Dr. Katz was very reasonable price wise. I highly recommend  him and think of him as a friend.

Joseph F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Have been going there for years. Great work, very friendly  and most important honest, giving you choices instead of trying to squeeze as  much money as possible. A rare quality in the ” dentistry” world. Love the guy!

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


I have used Dr. Katz for years now and wanted to finally a write a review to let everyone know how I really enjoy the service.  I have always been fearful of dentists but everytime I go I really enjoy the service.  He is so funny and turns it into an enjoyable experience. Also they always can accommodate my busy schedule and go out of their way to ensure that I get the best experience.

THE BEST! Dr. Katz Dental group is skilled, educated, honest, and incredibly kind. The doctors and staff go above and beyond to provide the absolute best care for their patients! They have done wonderful work for our family & every friend I have recommended them to. Katz Dental Group will truly take care of you, I highly recommend this amazing dental office!!

Tiffany M. from Playa del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Katz is incredibly professional while being kind and compassionate. I came to him needing expensive work done yet I had no money. He helped me out immediately and allowed me to make payments. He still continues to extend his hand out and help me. If it weren’t for Katz Dental Group I would still be in miserable pain with an abscessed tooth and other dental problems. The procedures I needed were done gently and virtually pain free. I highly recommend Katz dental group to anyone that is looking for a great dentist who Is gentle and performs exceptionally well. The office is clean and the staff is very personable. The office is even open on Sundays! I am forever grateful to Dr. Katz and his amazing staff.

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


I just moved to Los Angeles with my husband and three kids and needed to find a dentist to treat my family. I asked one of my co-workers and they referred me to Dr Katz. I was amazed when I walked into his office how positive and reassuring the front office staff was and was even more impressed by Dr Katz and his group. This is the only office that I have ever been to that have 3 general dentists, a pedodontist (who treats my kids) , an endododntist ( my husband needed a root canal ) ,periodontist and an oral surgeon ( my 17 yr old needs his wisdom teeth removed ). What a relief that I dont have to travel to 3 or 4 different offices to have my family treated. AND best of all- since I am working at a new job, its very hard to take off from work. DR KATZ IS OPEN ON SUNDAY!! I recommend Dr Katz and his incredible team to anyone. If youre looking for a great and caring dentist –then Dr Katz on Pico is the answer.

They re the best! I ve had alot of work done there-Cleanings, root canals, crowns nade in office while you wait And I had my smile redone with 23 crowns. Fantastic results! I am so happy. Great office- staff very friendly. No pain and very comfortable for all the procedures. I highly recommend Dr Katz and Dr Rosenthal for any dental needs that you have!

Colin F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been using Dr. Katz as my dentist for the past 4 years.  His front desk staff, team of assistants and dentists have always given me the best of dental care.  They are all very polite and professional.  I was referenced to his office by co-workers and I have also recommended his office to many friends and co-workers looking for a dentist.  They have all become long-time patients. His office is very clean and that is of HIGH importance for my standards.  From simple cleanings to getting cavities filled, his office can handle it all . . . and do so with ease.  I also recently decided to get Invisalign and Dr. Rosenthal, who has handled my treatments, has been a tremendous help. I’d highly recommend Dr. Katz, as he gets the job done, whether it’s big or small and does so without any pain.  He actually makes going to the dentist no big thing at all.

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


My experience here was amazing the dental office is simple and honestly that’s all you need.I went in for a second opinion because I felt like I was misdiagnosed with gum disease. Basically I did a cleaning special on yelp and I felt like I got screwed. so I needed a second opinion and they were on it they gave me a thorough examination. Turns out my teeth are perfectly fine and all I need is a deep cleaning.

A. Y. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


So happy I was lucky enough to find this place! I originally came in for a teeth cleaning and then requested a referral for an oral surgeon for a wisdom tooth extraction. Luckily enough, Dr. Katz recommended and referred me to their in-house oral surgeon, Dr. Israel, so I set up an appointment. I was extremely nervous since I have anxiety surrounding surgery and needles in general. Dr. Israel was immediately so accommodating, kind and easy to talk to, it felt like I had already known him for years. He also played Frank Sinatra (one of my favorites!) during the surgery which helped me relax and enjoy the moment. During the surgery, Dr. Israel was swift and made the entire nerve wracking ordeal  painless. The extraction was 100% easier and better than I initially expected, I could not be more thankful or happier. Their staff was also very friendly and professional!

Mo W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Katz is terrific. I called this morning complaining of a tooth pain and he immediately told me to come in and not to worry he will find time – I got there and his staff was extremely friendly and took me back immediately !  They were thorough professional and most of all made me feel at ease!  Dr Katz is kind, funny and a terrific dentist.  Highly recommend this office !

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


None of us are excited to visit the dentist, however if you have to go..THIS IS THE PLACE!!! The staff are extraordinarily warm, the hygienists here work hard to provide a deep cleaning with NO PAIN:) The Doctors are both amazing-my teeth are sparkling clean-actually looking forward to my next cleaning.

Evan P. from Carlsbad, CA (Source: Yelp)


He’s such a sweetheart of a guy.   I found Dr. Katz through a mutual friend and I felt very comfortable right away.   I keep my teeth in pretty good condition so I didn’t have a ton of work done outside of the basic cleaning, but what can I tell you….I can stop looking now.  Dr. Katz is my guy.

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


Richard Katz is simply the best dentist in town! His dentistry skills are far beyond the norm. A skillful technician with an artistic vision. A perfectionist! I had a recent concern about some enamel erosion which his expert hygienist Lila pointed out. Within minutes Dr. Katz performed his magic and the problem vanished. I visit Dr Katz’s friendly and convenient office in Rancho Park at least three times per year for a cleaning and checkup. I highly recommend Dr. Katz to all those interested in dental health & hygiene.

Gabrielle H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wonderful professional people on staff at this dentist’s office (on West Pico Blvd, just across from the Rancho Park Golf Course) with excellent service and dentistry work.  I had a crown fitted in an emergency visit  and then I choose to bring in  the rest of my family (paediatric dentistry) because I was so impressed with this office. I highly trust the work of Dr. Katz Dental Group.  There’s  convenient parking in the back and I have experienced very very reasonable attitude about pricing and payment plans.  I would highly recommend this office to anyone!

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


I recently went to see Dr . Katz for a cleaning. The staff is lovely, welcoming and very professional. I had x rays and a cleaning. My xrays showed a cracked crown and an old crown that needed to be replaced .Everything was done while i was there. I am so happy to have found this dental office !!
