A year ago I came here after chipping one of my front veneers. It was just before the Christmas holidays and I was getting ready to head back to Europe for two weeks. I was really worried about having half a tooth missing the whole time. Doctor managed to squeeze me in at the last minute. When I arrived at his office, I was greeted by very friendly staff, and Dr. Michelle herself even came out to say hello, which straight away put me at ease. As for the tooth repair, all I can say is she is an artist! Although it’s only temporary, and I’m having to be really careful about biting with my front teeth, you can’t even tell there was a chip. I got a quote for having the veneers replaced, and one of his staff members is currently working with me to see whether my insurance will cover some of the costs. LA SMILES DENTISTRY are out of network for my insurance, but I would still highly recommend them.

I definitely had one of the best service at this dentistry. Coming in, the front staff was very friendly. I called for an appointment, and they were nice, and they did not disappoint. My appointment was right on time, and it was hassle free. the dentist was very nice and made the operation as smooth as possible. In and out, it was a breeze. I am definitely coming back here.

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


I went to this office many years ago and I really like the office set up. It was very convenient for me but unfortunately they didn’t accept delta dental PPO at that time. They used to only accept delta dental premier which was a more expensive dental plan. I recently received a letter from the office informing me that they are accepting delta dental PPO now. Since I was not satisfied with the dentist I have been seeing for a while, I took the opportunity to go back to LA Smile. The best dentist I have had so far. The office is very organized and professional. There is no wait time. You can tell from the way the office is run that they do high quality dental work.

Penelope L. from Lincoln Heights, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


We were cautious at first to visit a dentist especially during COVID, but we felt very safe when reading over they have taken precautions having HEPA Filters in their office not just air-conditioning to improve air ventilation, antimicrobial mouthwash before start of procedures, and a few other steps they have taken to reduce the risk of transmissions between patients and staff. Second it help that they have done my brother’s root canals a couple of years ago and told us to that they are very good at making it PAINLESS and at a FAIR price. So we ended up here first to help with my sister tooth that cracked that same day and ending up calling them to schedule a visit that same day which ended up needing a root canal treatment. Again you expect a root canal treatment to be very painful but they did OUTSTANDING work on not making it painful at all for her. She is wearing a temp crown for now until she receives her crown in a few weeks so far it’s been pretty soon. A good heads up for those looking for treatment, probably best to do a whitening before getting that crown because a permanent crown don’t work well with whitening treatments. So in that case, she did the zoom treatment and then chose the shade color of her crown. It was all very new to us but we are very happy that they listen to our concerns and answered a lot of our questions. As for me, I did end up going here for an emergency wisdom tooth extraction shortly after my sister’s treatment. They are a lifesaver as I was having trouble eating and sleeping due to the pain I was getting from the wisdom tooth and they did all of very painless! Thank you to the amazing dentist and staff for the wonderful experiences and helping us on our treatment plans during a time of need and quality care.

I had a fantastic experience. As soon as I walked in the room, I was greeted very nicely by the receptionist and although I was originally nervous, she made me feel comfortable. The service was outstanding and I left very pleased by the results. I’ve already made my next appointment. I’d definitely recommend them!

Noah R. from Ocean Park, Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


There really isn’t anything negative to say about the experience (other than the loud drilling noises but I assume that’s unavoidable). The dentists are all extremely nice and careful with you at all times. They make sure to get to know you and check in on how you’re doing constantly. At other offices you feel a pressure to keep my mouth open and keep going no matter what, but you always feel like you can stop at any time. Doctor Michelle is unbelievable as are the rest of the team. Would highly recommend for you and your family!

Lydia R. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a very picky person. I came to this office because my dad advised me to. Since day one I’ve loved it. I’m very much afraid of needles but every time I had to get a shot they made me comfortable. Everyone in the office is very professional and friendly. They treat as family. Always greeted with the smile. Every dental procedures that I advertising done has been top notch. From this day forward I don’t see myself leaving this office. I recommend this office for whatever procedure that they offer specially dental implants. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to be seen. You guys are great! Thanks for everything.

Nick Korvi (Source: Google)


Had a great experience visiting this Dentist. The staff was very friendly and made me feel comfortable throughout the visit. I’ve had bad experiences at the dentist in the past and been afraid of needles since I was young. I needed a filling and had to find the best in the area. The prices were very reasonable and my insurance covered most of the costs! I was also treated to a teeth evaluation in which I decided to get my teeth cleaned. I would definitely recommend Smiles Dentistry to anyone that wants their teeth cared by professionals. 5/5 stars.

Gavin Mortensen (Source: Google)


Contrary to most of my experiences at the dentist, my time with LA Smiles has been absolutely incredible. From the moment you walk in and are greeted, you know that you are in good hands. Anybody caring for you will tell you what they’re doing, and check with you to make sure you feel comfortable. Definitely was a nice change after some particularly bad service in the past. When I heard that this was the best dentist in LA, I VERY soon learned why after I made my first appointment. I can’t even imagine going anywhere else now, so do your teeth a favor, go here!

Geraldine P. from Bellevue, WA (Source: Yelp)


I really am so appreciative to such a good dentist and staff, which helped take my fears away for my dental treatment.  From the time I entered the office and was seen, which was very punctual till the time I sat down And was treated till the time I left I felt very comfortable and at peace. Dr M was exceptionally kind, friendly, professional, knowledgeable, courteous and skilled when she treated me. The dentist and all of the staff worked well efficiently as a team. I liked all of them. They were very pleasant and reassuring. I was impressed with the office and felt it was so modern, clean and high tech with really cool equipment. I am happy to know they do implants, extractions and treat gum disease with other specialty dentist’s that work there as well. I would recommend this office to anyone and they get 5 stars from me. Thank you again

Scott H. from Rockville, MD (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mazaheri did a great job with my cleaning and filling. The appointment was quick and painless. Glad to have found a new dentist in a convenient location in DTLA.

I am extremely happy and satisfied with the dental work done by Dr Afsaneh Mazaheri. She is very kind and very professional and I received an excellent treatment. I will recomend this doctor to all my friends.

LaKeisha M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I woke up in horrible pain today. Since relocating from Dallas I have been visiting several dentist in LA and the vibe wasn’t right. So I got online and looked again and found this place. Went in…immediate yes to the cleanliness! And the lady greeted me very nicely. they were sensitive to my pain and let me come in and get paperwork done as fast as possible so I could be seen. They have a great discount plan that helps save money! The doc that did the extraction was very gentle. Normally my mouth is all jacked up from rough dentists but he was cautious of that! I didn’t even know the tooth was out …so that numbing stuff was the real deal! Lol just a great experience and I look forward to happily paying my dental bill at LA Smiles from now on. Finally found somewhere that has fair prices and do good work. …now if only I could get some kickstarters going for this dental bill lol …any takers??

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


I had the best dental experience in this office. The office is tastefully decorated. The front office staff are pleasing , friendly and caring. The rooms are clean and bright, it helps my anxiety. The dentist is very proffessional and patient. this office offers the latest in technology.I love the option to be completely unaware while the work was done on me. For me the no pain and no memory of the work was a lbast. total treatment from start to finish is excellent, and the understanding of individual’s need was the best part.

Geena Attanasio (Source: Google)


I was skeptical about teeth whitening because of reviews I’ve read online but after visiting LA Smiles my mind was completely changed. My teeth look beautiful and white, they feel strong and healthy as well, not sensitive at all. I will definitely be returning here and recommending my friends! Thank you!

A. C. (Source: Zocdoc)


Came in today for an emergency visit. Dr Mazaheri was very profesional. She explained to me in detail what was going on with my tooth. She also gave me options to save my tooth. I am very grateful for her. I already scheduled my next appointment with her.

Angelo Dela Cruzz (Source: Google)


I came here for some general teeth cleaning last month. Scheduling with them was super easy and quick, no complications like I’ve had before with other dentists. I arrived on the date of the appointment and the staff greeted and I waited until I was called by the dentist to a room. After a couple minutes of waiting I had to switch to another room but it was no biggie, I liked the second one better lol. My teeth was then cleaned and the people taking care of me were warm and receptive to my questions. I had a great time and a great experience. As a plus this is also my roommate’s dentist and for months I would wake up to his loud teeth grinding at night. It was a problem. He had used night guards before but none were comfortable for him, however the night guard given by this dentist last week works like a miracle for him and me. No more teeth grinding and more sleep for me.

The best dentist and staff I have seen at a dental office. I have a huge fobia for dental drills and noises. They did everything they could to minimize my fear. Dr. M. made me feel very comfortable. She had great chair side manners. I recommend this office to everyone!

Summer Pohl (Source: Google)


As soon as I walked in the office, staff was warm and welcoming. Checking in was easy and I didn’t have to wait long at all to be seen. The rooms were all clean and organized. I was going in for my yearly cleaning and an additional cosmetic consultation. The Dr. was very thorough in everything he did and after examining my mouth, he assured me that he could fix all the cosmetic problems that I was worried about. In total, I was only there for a little under an hour and walked out happy!

Lydia Robinson (Source: Yelp)


I’m a big chicken when it comes to needles. No re-phrase, I just have a phobia. Honestly I found this place in a whom because my parents once were patients, but under previous owners. Since coming here, I have to say for now, IM NOT GOING ANY PLACE ELSE! You would have to come here for yourself. I just know, I’m a picky person, sometimes a little too judgemental. La Smiles has a patient for life. I would show you a picture of my pearly whites but my pic looks bad. But I love my teeth. I thought they were white, til I got a cleaning. Mind you, cleaning not whitening. I highly recommend La Smiles. On La brea!

G. Montero from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is great! The office is always nice and clean, you are welcomed with a huge smile, and feel welcomed. It’s really hard to stay on top of your dental health so they make sure to reach out and help you out with that, and they’re very smart about working with your insurance to minimize your out of pocket costs. I highly recommend them.

This is a great place. Finally, after many places over the years, I have a go-to dentist. I needed a cleaning and one filling, and I didn’t want to go to any of my previous dentists. I googled and found LA Smiles Dentistry, so I said let’s try it. And jackpot! No need to search for a dentist again. The booking system is professional and the responses are in timely fashion. The prices were competitive too. They applied my insurance right away. Everything went as smooth as a visit to a dentist should be. It’s not rocket science to be organized, professional, and respectful to your patients. Nevertheless, most places mess it up. This is not the case with LA Smiles Dentistry. I totally recommend this place, and I tell about them to my friends or colleagues whenever someone asks me whether I knew a good dentist. Finally, my answer is: Yes, I do.

absolutely love this office. did a fantastic job pulling my tooth they talked to me about my teeth and explained things so well. The ladies at the front always has a smile on and treats you with so much respect. The wait time is not long they take u right in. I love the office so much i will be coming back soon

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


I finally found a good dentist that isn’t making wait too long or procedures I don’t need. And when they give me a price it’s the actual price! I got a deep cleaning and it was not even painful. I would definitely recommend people to go. All the employees are friendly and it’s very clean. The only issue is location is tricky to get in. But once you figure it out it’s not bad. There is is parking tho big plus.

Dr. Mazaheri was very sweet & understanding about my fear’s of coming in. She was gental & proficent we are now communicating & making sure my dental needs are up to date, love coming in now & can wait to schedule my next app to get my clenning done. Thank you.

Eric O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place. Don’t care for dentists, but it’s a great local office. One of the best things about the Dr. is that she TELLS you exactly what she’s doing. Not just the “open big” that all dentists tell you but specifics like “I’m going to drill this tooth and you will feel pressure and hear the drilling. It should only take a minute to a minute and a half”. It lets me know how long the work is going to take and what to expect. This is very different from most other dentists and I greatly appreciate the communication from her.

Karol G. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have anxiety when it comes to dentist offices. I’ve had a lot of bad experiences in the past which has made me dread finding a new dentist here in LA. Well thankfully I found LA smiles dentistry. The staff is incredibly friendly and made sure I was comfortable during my entire appointment. Thankfully LA Smiles reduced my anxiety about dentists’ offices and I can book my next appointment with no hesitation

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


This review began as an entire page sharing my dental history and highlighting the many negative experiences that I have had at dentists’ offices in and around Los Angeles, but I decided to just get to the point. My chief issue is that dentists can never figure out how to numb me for scary procedures i.e., wisdom tooth pulling and root canals, so once, I had to have a wisdom tooth pulled while my were completely alive. I will tell you that because of what I have endured in my past, my preference was to NEVER go to another dental office in life, but in May 2019, I cracked a tooth while eating a bowl of cereal. You would have thought I’d just been given a death sentence. I was depressed and filled with dread knowing that I had to once again go to a dentist for something that was going to hurt really bad. I’ve traveled all over this county trying to find a dental office with caring and empathetic people who also had great skill in dentistry and would be able to numb me properly, but I wasn’t going to find this unicorn that I’d been searching for, for over thirty (30) years, so I decided this time–since it was going to hurt anyway–to go ahead and opt for convenience, so I tried an office less than a mile from my home. The name of the office: L.A. Smiles. I entered and liked what I saw. The office was immaculately clean, cheerful, and there was a kind of warmth about it that encouraged me. It started at the front desk with Robin and Rosie who welcomed me to the office as a first-time patient. I appreciated Robin’s thoroughness as she researched and outlined the provisions of my dental insurance, and Rosie’s positive spirit and attitude as she answered a few questions that I had and scheduled my upcoming appointments. I ended up needing yet another root canal. At that instant, I did not know that I would have the best dental experience in my life with Dr. Mazaheri–I was too busy being devastated when I heard the words “root canal.” My blood ran cold with fear and I began girding myself for what I was about to face. L.A. Smiles has a STELLAR team of expert dental assistants/technicians. Maybe four assistants worked with me at one time or another during my root canal treatment and subsequent deep cleaning. I regret that I do not have all of their names, but Cora was the last one to assist me. I have never experienced the level of care that Cora provided. Kindness goes a very long way with a patient who is fearful and she is both kind and genuinely considerate. She was absolutely perfect in her care of me as a patient. The highly skilled and gifted doctor who changed my life and has changed forever how I now feel about dental procedures is Dr. Mazaheri. She has a wonderful demeanor and was profoundly kind and caring. Also, she was successful in numbing me! That has never happened to be before! I cannot say enough “Thank Yous” to her for this new experience and my new outlook towards any future dental care that I may need. Dr. M. is truly remarkable! You too should choose L.A. Smiles for your dental office. It will be a positive and life-changing experience!

Dr. Sooferi, Dr. Mazaheri, and all of the office staff are so kind and professional. The office has the most advanced dental equipment and everyone in the office do a fantastic job to keep the patients comfortable. All of my fillings, crowns, root canals, bridges, three implants and one extraction have been top notch and as comfortable as extensive dental work can be. Appointments are prompt and the $ quotes were very competitive for me as a private pay patient with no insurance. I paid the same amount as insurance based patients. I love this office and the care I received there. My sister tried Historic Core Dental Care first and referred me. I subsequently took my mom and referred my best friend and her two children. I highly recommend this practice!!!

I recently went to LA Smiles Dentistry for a cleaning. The staff was very kind and accommodating. The technician who did my cleaning was gentle and explained everything she was doing step by step! I was Out if the office in no time flat! I’m actually looking forward to my next cleaning!! Thank you LA smiles!

J. G. (Source: Zocdoc)


It was awesome! Dr. Mazaheri was very thorough- she explained and showed everything in my treatment plan. She was very gentle, had a great conversation other than dental things… made me feel comfortable. Highly recommend!

I’m a longtime patient at LA Smiles and have always found the staff and service to be patient centered and professional. The front office staff as well as back office staff show patience and concern whether it’s regarding financial matters or any procedures to be performed. There’s no such thing as “it hurts so good” but, two fillings took all of 10 mins and the anesthetic really didn’t hurt. LA Smiles is a winner in my book and if you don’t have insurance, you can purchase there at a seriously reasonable cost. Shout to Robin, Rosie and Geri and the rest of the crew!

Willie Scott IV (Source: Google)


I recommend this place if you need any teeth work done in the la area. The staff is welcoming, the environment is friendly and they will even help with all new porcelain crowns. It’s ensured you will receive the best service and leave feeling compeletey confident about your new smile. 🙂

I want to recognize  all the great dental work that has been done by Dr. Sooferi and Dr. Mazaheri on my brother and Me. Dr. Sooferi has seen many of my relatives for many years. A few years ago I took my younger brother to see him due to a major issue with his implant crown popping off continuously which was done years ago. Apparently, he had seen a few other dentists prior to this dental visit but no dentist could diagnose the problem and figure out why the crown keeps coming off.  It took Dr. Sooferi only seconds to diagnose the issue. Apparently he has been working with many dental implant systems and is very familiar with issues arising with dental implants. My brother has not complained since. Last week I finally decided that it’s time to go in for a check up and cleaning. Dr. Mazaheri was the general dentist at his office. Let me tell you, she is really great. She makes you feel very comfortable and really gives you the attention any patient needs when it comes to getting dental work done. Fortunately I had no cavities and a good cleaning was all that was needed. Thank you Historic Core Team for quality dental care. You have made a loyal patient out of me!!!!


Dr. Afsaneh Mazaheri earned her doctor of dental surgery degree (DDS) from the New York University College of Dentistry, which is widely considered one of the top dental programs in the world. She has been a practicing dentist since 2014 in Washington, DC, Virginia, and California. For eight years prior to this, she accumulated significant hands-on experience as a dental hygienist. While Dr. Mazaheri is highly skilled in all aspects of general dentistry, she is particularly passionate about cosmetic procedures. And, as a dedicated member of the American Dental Association, she is committed to meeting the organization’s high standards and to continually educating herself on the newest and best practices in the field. Outside of the office, Dr. Mazeheri enjoys international travel, fitness, cooking, and spending quality time with her family and friends.
