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


Doctor Jack is the Best Dentist in the world! He’s completely thorough in explaining what he thinks is the best treatment option for his patients. He has superior people skills and makes you feel extremely comfortable while he’s going about performing his duties. On top that, all of his office staff mirror his level of professionalism and naturally they make you feel like you’re the only patient in the world- at least I did. Wish I would have found Dr. Jack years ago! If you’re dentiophobic (dental chicken), LA South Bay Dental is the place for you. Thanks again Dr. Jack!


Dr. Jack is simply the best…he listened to my main concern, took the time to explain the treatment plan and made me feel at ease.  Once we got started with the dentistry part, he was informing me through out the process on the steps to follow and progress which i thought was great.  I did not feel any pain or discomfort at all and my tooth feels like its been untouched!!! He also  an incredible team of knowledgable staff that made the experience very comfortable.  Overall A+++ EXPERIANCE!!


Updated review (after Zoom Whitening and Crown replacement) Still the best dental office I have ever been to! I have completed my zoom whitening, up to stage 4 which was somewhat intensive but the results were amazing. I get compliments daily about how beautiful my smile is, something I’ve never heard in my entire life due to crooked teeth or chipped teeth. I have completed my Invisalign and now my teeth are perfectly straight. I have completed my crowns to fix my chipped teeth leaving me with a perfect smile! All of this was done with Dr. Jack and his staff Dr. Jack is highly skilled. I have completed my entire treatment and could not be happier. When you come to this office, they listen very carefully to what you need and make sure you get the results that you want. Dr. Jack and his staff will treat you like family and will provide you with a plan to ensure complete happiness with your dental needs. Thank you Dr. Jack. You are the best! If you have any dental needs or concerns, please go visit LA South Bay Dental. Take it from me who has had everything done and put complete trust in this office. You will be very satisfied and happy when you are finished!

I had a cleaning last week and just had a molar extraction while 7 months pregnant. Dr. T and his staff have all been absolutely wonderful. The office is nice and clean and calm. But it’s really the people that make this a wonderful place. The Receptionist, the Dental Hygienist, the Dental Assistants, and the Doctor–Everyone is so mellow and calm. It really seems like a great place to work. The Doctor was very thorough in the way he did my extraction. I feel he did more than the average dentist would do to make sure I was comfortable the whole time. He was really good at reading my facial expressions too. He knew right away if I was in a little pain and was patient while administering more anesthetic. He was always mindful of my pregnancy and that’s something I really appreciated. The prices are very reasonable especially because the service here is so great. Yes! I absolutely recommend this Dental Office. They have great reviews for a reason: They have EARNED them.


If I can give a 1000 stars I would say it wouldn’t be enough. Dr jack and team took care of me as if I was a family member. Every single employee treats you like a king/queen. I never been to any other dentist that goes far and beyond to make sure your teeth are in perfect condition and you are satisfied with everything. Now I am sending all of my close friends and relatives to Dr. Jack.


At 67 years old had my first wisdom tooth extracted due to cracking. Dr. Jack was great! He explained everthing he was going to do and from the injection to the end, there was no pain or discomfort. It’s been about 2 hrs since the procedure, the numbness has worn off and I have very little pain and very little bleeding. Please see Dr. Jack for your dental needs, him and his staff are freindly and caring. Thank you all!


Dr.  Takarlekian Is GREAT!  The staff is Awesome.   The dental hygienists are Amazing.   I’ve been going here for 10 years now and even though the Dr.  has changed,  the quality has not.  I’ve had a filling here and it was done with the utmost care and ease.   Pain free and clean.   Professional work for sure.   And his attitude and personality makes anyone at ease.   I’ve been using Cheryl as my dental hygienist and couldn’t be happier.   Very knowledgeable and friendly.   Overall amazing place


I’ve never liked going to the dentist but I have to say that Dr.Jack and his staff have changed my mind about going to the dentist. They are all so friendly and highly professional. I was recently feeling some pain on one of my teeth and I called the office, that same day I was in the office having that ache fixed. I am absolutely amazed with the service here. This is not a big business type of dentist office, this office has a very comfortable atmosphere that feels like you’re at home. I highly recommend coming here.


My entire family goes to see Cheryl Akagi and Dr. Jack. Both are professional, knowledgable and passionate about their work. From the moment you walk through the door, you are greeted with a smile and any of those dental anxieties are calmed. They provide a thorough cleaning and check-up for kids and adults (and scaredy-cats), and make great referrals when needed (my kids have a wonderful ortho now because of this office). This is an office worth seeing and everyone is great!


I went for another appointment to redo an old filling that was chipped. Dr. Jack did such an amzing work. Have not felt ANY PAIN NOWHATSOEVER! Professional, top of line equipment, and friendly staff! What’s not to like about this BEST DENTISTRY CLINIC IN UNITED STATES!! Thank you!


I’ve been going here a little less than a year now and I have never had a bad experience here. Not only do they do a splendid job but they are all such kind people. I recently had a crown put on one of my teeth. I experienced some bad aches months later and I called Dr. Jack and he squeezed me in right away and fixed my ache right away. Love this place.


Dr Jack is One of a kind dentist !!! I wish I can give him 10 star and +,   Dr Jack is very honest, professional and amazing, His staff is highly qualified. Thank you Dr. Jack for taking care of all my problems I have not felt great for many years, thank you for the excellent work, and thank you for taking care of my kids. you are the best.


Most people hate the dentist for whatever reason. I have to be honest, I was one of those guys who hated the dentist. LOL!  My wife had been coming to his office for many years and it was time for me to get a new Dentist. Their location is conveniently located off the 405 and across the street from Alondra Golf Course. They have free parking available located in the rear of the building. The staff is fantastic. They are very kind, professional and most of all they make you feel comfortable. Dr. Jack Takarlekian (AKA Dr. Jack) is awesome. He is very thorough in explaining your procedure. If you are in need of major work he will give you options that won’t break the bank. I recently had some work done and he was excellent. He is gentle, professional and his work is fantastic. He is NOT trying to upsell you with expensive procedures like some other dentists. He is an honest guy. If you are living in the LA or the SouthBay and are looking for a dentist Dr. Jack is your guy. I would highly recommend him.


I moved to California and my 6th month here I needed a root canal. Dr. Jack was thorough and seemed very trust worthy. After my procedure not only am I happy I can’t imagine going anywhere else. He is a very kind man and a true professional. I got a cleaning from his hygienist first, and she was very experienced and friendly. I would recommend this dental office. Thanks Dr. Jack.


Great service, Great staff. I had a very bad experience with my previous dentist where I had a very painful procedure. He did not num my mouth properly… Dr. Jack was very nice, he took his time to explain what he will be doing to my tooth. He made sure I did not feel any pain. It’s great when your dentist is actually taking his time to provide all the information that you need, versus jumping from one patient to another because he is very busy and has no time for you.


I have always experienced anxiety regarding dental visits. Well, as usual the dentist and staff at LA South Bay Dental eased my fears!!! Dr. Takarlekian (or as my kids say “Dr. T”) and Gina are two of the best in the industry. My Crown became loose (not placed by this office) and of course I was concerned about the treatment plan. Dr. Takarlekian patiently provided me a thorough consultation, explaining all the possibilities and options. The procedure went GREAT!!! I’m pain free…. Thanks LA South Bay Dental for providing me with 100% patient satisfaction.


Dr. Jack is an amazing dentist!  I’m new to the area and was recommended by one of my coworkers and I have to say I was definitely impressed.  First of all, the staff is pleasant and professional and just around an exceptional team. Upon making my appointment and having my visitation with Dr. Jack, it was refreshing to find a doctor that thoroughly cared about my well-being. He is extremely knowledgeable, personable, informative and not only takes his time with every visit but he is very easy to talk too.  He went through my x-rays and told me step by step all the procedures that need to be done and actually answered all my questions/concerns. You can tell he really takes pride in his work and is meticulous with every step of the procedure. So happy I found a new dentist! Dr. Jack and his team are truly the best!!


Dr. Jack has the skill and qualities for being an excellent dentist:  Competent, professional, caring, ethical, and friendly.  Such an incredible dentist who makes you feel at ease as he explains his techniques very throughly and ALWAYS has the best interest of patient comfort.  What a gentle man who cares deeply.  He has state of the art technology, his staff is professional and efficient.  His hygienist’s, make teeth cleaning easy-peasy.   If you are looking for an honest competent dentist, then Dr. Jack is the one to see.  I know I couldn’t be any happier with his care and professionalism.  He takes paitent care to another level.


This is the best and most professional dental office I have been to. The staff is amazing (not exaggerating)! Dr Jack is wonderful, thorough and detailed. I appreciate how he explains everything so I understand, especially because I ask a million questions. They truly are an amazing team!


Where do I begin. I was introduced to Dr. Jack through a friend and I’m so glad I found him. Dr. Jack takes the time and doesn’t try to rush you and make the whole dentist nightmare a walk in the park. Throughout the procedure he constantly kept in contact with me making sure I was in no pain whatsoever. I will recommend Dr. Jack to all my friends and family. Thank you for being so awesome A+


Dr. Jack and his team are the best! He has such a gentle hand and makes sure your comfortable throughout any procedure! I’ve been to their office several times and this office really shoes professionalism and experience. I wouldn’t go to anyone else & recommend Dr. Jack to everyone!
