Dr Khorsandi is a most professional, an expert oral surgeon I have ever met. For three years I was suffering from dental implant malpractice with its dire consequences. Hopefully with expert doctors we could eliminate all lethal problems ;  extraction of the failed implant, infection of IAN nerve, etc, etc. However, one problem lingered; I had terrible  clicking in my jaw following the pain in temporomandibular joint , which doctors diagnosed as TMJ. No. It was not. It was a misguided  diagnosis not indicating  the real source of the problem. Dr Khorsandi detected a hard abscess on the implant metal left from previous infection, and also a  bone recession. Dr Khorsandi had performed a most difficult and challenging surgery cleaning up the dental implants, bone grafting them from anew. My jaw clicking disappeared – I feel a perfect balance in my mouth, which before was slanted. I can not thank enough Dr Khorsandi. Dr. Khorsandi is a  man who would detect the problems and give you back not only your health, but also your human dignity and self -esteem  treating you as his own.

I cannot write enough about Dr. Khorsandi! I had my two gum grafting surgeries with him and he did an amazing job!!! I was so scared about the procedure and results, but they are better than I ever expected – fast recovery and beautiful, natural looking gums! I was very fortunate to find him and I highly recommend his practice to anyone seeking the highest level of dental treatment!

A few weeks ago I went into Dr. Sam’s office to schedule a gum surgery that I needed. From the start, he made the process very simple and easy and the work he did was excellent and healed quickly. He ensured that I was comfortable and that everything well perfectly and he even followed up with me via a phone call the day after to make sure that I was feeling better. I highly recommend Dr. Sam to any and everyone!

I highly recommend Dr Sam S Khorsandi. Thank you.

Dr. Khorsandi has excellent skills and is very pleasant. If you have any questions, he takes the time to answer them. He performed an implant procedure a few weeks ago. I was amazed that the implant was painless. I took one pain pill on the first day. There was no need to take more. He also takes good care of my gums. His entire staff is very knowledgeable and very pleasant. I am a very happy patient. I highly recommend Dr. Khorsandi to anyone.

I would highly recommend Dr. Sam to anyone who is wants to improve their appearance and overall confidence, they should consider dental implants. I had lost several rear and front teeth due to gum disease and saw a denture plate in my future. Because of my fears, I thought that implants would be an extremely uncomfortable procedure, but, with Dr. Sam’s technique there was a minimum amount of discomfort. I was considering dentures, but, when presented with idea of dental implants, it was easy for me change and start the dental implant work. I have several dental implants, front and rear and it was not as uncomfortable as I expected it to be, plus Dr. Sam works quickly and considers the patients overall comfort during the procedures, so that there is a minimum amount of discomfort. Overall, I am totally satisfied with my implants. My diet has improved, I can eat healthier, salads, nuts, meats, all that I had to give up before, since all my molars were is such bad shape. Before, smiles were not a part of my profile, now, I just can’t wait to show off my brand new smile from ear to ear.

I was so nervous to get implants. It sounded like it was going to be something painful. I’ve had friends tell me horror stories about their implants, but I’ve got to tell you that I am not exaggerating when I say this was a walk in the park. Dr. Khorsandi was so kind and so gentle that I didn’t feel a thing. I was amazed at how pain free this was. I will definitely be getting more implants and I would never let anyone but Dr. Khorsandi do the job.

Vivian S. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so blessed that I was introduced to Dr. Khorsandi. It actually happened after an implant complication where my bone did not heal and my 3 implants failed to take. I was a mess durning my consultation with Dr. Khorsandi just not knowing how could this situation be repaired.  He calmed me, explained that he will make sure that this  is repaired correctly and that he’s not going to let me cry anymore but only start to smile again.  He is so gently and caring to his patients. The following day after my surgery he called in the morning to check to see how I was feeling and to make sure I picked up my prescriptions.  I wish that I can give him more than 5 Star Rating.

After becoming Dr. Khorsandi’s patient, I started looking forward to going to dentist appointments! Dr. Khorsandi is attentive, professional, takes great care of his patients. In fact the amount of care I have gotten could only be compared to the amount of care one would get from the members of the family. Dr. Khorsandi made me feel comfortable before and during the procedures, explained all the options and checked what was covered by my insurance prior to scheduling anything. Dr. Khorsandi did bone grafting ridge augmentation & reconstruction plus implant surgery and I am very happy with all of those! His assistants, office staff and dental hygienist always made me smile and took genuine care and contributed to a calm friendly atmosphere. All in all, it is a great pleasure to be in this warm, caring and knowledgeable environment.

I was referred to Dr. Khorsandi and highly recommended. I am 64 years old and have had very bad experience with dentists. Whenever I had any work done It was always painful. I expressed this to Dr. Khorsandi he said you will not feel pain well thanks be to God he extracted a tooth pain free. I just left the doctor’s office for my follow up and I am extremely satisfied with his work. His staff is not only professional but very friendly. I had not been to the dentist for over 3 years. I will be a lifetime patient. When I was having my procedure done I was very nervous and the nurses were very nice and helped me through the process. Thank you again Dr. Khorsandi and staff.

To all of you who have been searching or considering and are in need of the best in Dental Services, especially Periodontal services, I highly recommend that you treat yourself to the best. My visits have provided me with great relief and satisfaction with my needs. I am happy with my smile and want to keep it that way. Thanks to Dr. Sam Khorsandi as well as his staff.

I’ve been putting off a much needed dental procedure for years. My consultation with Dr. Khorsandi and his thorough explanation is what made me finally say, “Yes. Let’s do it.” Dr. Khorsandi took the time to explain what was needed and why it was important not to delay any longer. My procedure was spread out over two visits and the care I received was wonderful. A next day phone call from Dr. Khorsandi after both visits was an unexpected gift. And I can’t forget his support staff. Everyone was helpful, especially the young ladies who operate the front desk. It may not be normal to say this about major dental surgery, but Dr. Khorsandi and his staff made it a wonderful experience. Skill and kindness are great ways to override fear and pain. Thanks everyone!

DR. SAMUEL KHORSANDI is an amazing Periodontist. I was advised over 3 years ago by my regular Dentist to be on the safe side and get checked out by a Periodontist. During that time, I went to three different Dental Offices and saw two Periodontists for evaluation. I was not happy with any of them. It felt like they were pushing me into signing an expensive contract which it turns out they were. My wife and I looked on Yelp and saw that two of the Dental Offices we had been at had a 1.5 star rating. Patients who wrote reviews said they were pushed into signing a contract and that poor work had been done. I decided to keep looking. As it turns out, I happen to mention to my hair dresser that I was looking for a good Periodontist and if he knew of any. He said he did and he mentioned Dr. Samuel Khorsandi. I gave the office a call and set up an appointment. The moment you walk into the office, you notice how clean and well organized it is. Christina will greet you at the front desk and take care of you immediately. She is delightful and really does an excellent job at keeping things moving. I had barely signed in when they called for me. It was a privilege to meet Dr. Samuel Khorsandi. His presence and character put you at ease as he is a very gentle man. He evaluated my situation and gave me a meticulous and precise diagnosis. I was pleasantly surprised when he told me how much it would cost. It was very reasonable for the work that had to be done. On the day of the surgery, again, Christina got me right in. Dr. Khorsandi is a top specialist in periodontal disease and I hardly felt a thing from the numbing to the completion of the surgery. Dr. Khorsandi is very gentle with his hands and he and his assistants make sure you are always comfortable and relaxed. Everything went great. He was fast, gentle and did an amazing job. The whole experience was very pleasant and I healed quickly with little to no pain. Dr. Khorsandi is such of a caring Periodontist he called me the next morning to check and see how I was doing and if everything was okay. I couldn’t recommend Dr. Samuel Khorsandi and his team enough. If you want the best in the business and someone who is gentle, caring and does excellent work, give Dr. Samuel Khorsandi’s office a call for a visit. You will be pleasantly surprised. They also have free parking in the back. I would give Dr. Khorsandi a 10 star but if 5 stars is all they have, he clearly deserves that and much much more. Robert S.

I have been going to Dr.Khorsandi since I was a kid. He is the most gentle and caring periodontist anyone could ask for. He has done some gum work on me and always does an excellent job and calls me the next day to see how I’m feeling. You can see he really cares about his clients!! To top it off; his prices are very reasonable and his staff is very friendly. I highly recommend his services.

Moe M. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Getting dental implants is a bit intimidating, but Dr. Khorsandi brings a smile to this reviewer!  As anxious as I was about removing a tooth and getting it ‘drilled out’ it was TOTALLY Painless. He practices Superior safety when arriving to his workplace in Downey with hand sanitizer to his PPE and even his staff following safe practices during this ‘crisis’ Phase 2 of getting the implant was also TOTALLY Painless….Wow!!  Very professional staff helping during the procedure is a plus from me!! I Will strongly recommend if you need any dental needs….Dr. Khorsandi is the Dr. to see and smile about!!

Randy G. from Montebello, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sam was attentive and professional during my dental visit.  Because of gum disease, 95% of my molars were extracted.  Full dentures were in my future, which I did not want.  After a consultation with Dr. Sam, he explained the implant procedures in detail to me.  My implant procedures were spread out over several visits, each one left me eager to proceed with completion of the process to see the finished product.  Also, Dr. Sam advised me that this is a process, since in my case there was extensive bone loss in several areas due to missing teeth. With Dr. Sam’s gentle procedures, I had extensive bone grafts before the actual implant process, feeling minimal pain.  After having a portion of my implants completed, I have improved my quality of life, I can eat and chew better.  No worries about removing, slipping, painful or lost dentures.  I actually lost a denture, since it was uncomfortable to wear and I would remove it at every possible chance.  I am thrilled with my implants.

The office of Dr. Sam Khorsandi at Downy Dental is absolutely amazing. From the friendly staff to the amazing, high-tech technology used at the office, it is always a pleasure visiting Dr. Khorsandi. His charismatic and caring nature assure you that you’re in the best hands, no matter what your issue may be. He uses and implements state-of-the-art technology throughout all of his dental procedures and always stays on top of all the medical advancements happening in the dental field. Dr. Khorsandi is, without a doubt, the only dentist I trust to work on my teeth. We have established a relationship for 25+ years, and I couldn’t be happier to have him as my dentist. He will make you feel so at ease and comfortable while thoroughly explaining his game plan/method for remedying any issue you may have. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Sam Khorsandi. You can’t go wrong!

Dr. Khorsandi is a great Periodontics.  I recently had Periodontal  Surgery and surprisingly I had no pain afterwards, just a little soreness.  Dr. K explained the surgery to me in detail there were no surprises the day of surgery. I followed my after care instructions and I healed beautifully.  The staff were wonderful they reassured me that I was in good hands and sure enough they were right.  Thank you so much!! I highly recommend Dr.K !

Did my gum grafting with Sam and he has done an amazing job!! It was a fast, easy recovery and fantastic results! No one can notice the area of the grafting – it looks like my natural gums! I’m so blessed to find Sam, I was afraid for years to go through with it and I’m so glad I did. I wouldn’t do it anywhere else – highly recommend!!! The clinic is very clean, organized and professional. The team is super nice and helpful. Really had a great experience.

Ellie K. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Khorsandi is very professional and has the best bed sight manners. He did a careful evaluation on my parents. They both are extremely satisfied and felt they were treated with the best care ever. He has gentle hands, you hardly feel anything! The front staff is very welcoming and always look out for the best for there patients. Dr K. always goes the extra mile for everyone. He called my parents for the entire week to check up on them. Dr. K is on demand for his patients, he will meet you anytime in case of any emergency situations. Extremely satisfied and would recommend to anyone who is looking for a true Periodontist.

Dr. Sam did an outstanding job with me. I brushed too hard, and as a result he had perform gum surgery on my tooth. I was concerned about the pain…ironically, i felt no pain?? I was very happy with the outcome! I have been coming for my routine cleanings etc since I was a little girl, and I will continue to go with them for future dental needs. Lastly, the staff is awesome!! That’s my reason for not going anywhere else.

C. C. from Palo Alto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Sam is the best periodontist I have encountered! I was so impressed with the extraction and implant procedure! Dr Sam was so gentle and kind that the whole procedure was pain free! The implant crown looks so perfect and beautiful! All his staffs are wonderful and very helpful! I strongly recommend anyone who has dental needs to go to Dr Sam!

Dr. Khorsandi recently removed my wisdom teeth, and he did an amazing job. He is very personable, and it is clear that he knows what he is doing. The procedure was quick and went smoothly. He used all of the latest dental technology, which greatly aided my healing process. My recovery was fast as well. I had very little pain and swelling following my procedure. I was back on my feet within two days, and a week later, I am basically back to normal. I highly recommend Dr. Khorsandi’s services.

Corinne A. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Khorsandi just finished putting in my tooth implant and all I can say is “wow”.  It’s the prettiest tooth in my mouth. I wish I could do all of them. It’s comfortable and the whole thing was pretty painless. Dr. Khorsandi is the best. Not only is he the kindest man but he is an excellent dentist. I love him and his staff.
