Lad Dentistry has been my dentist for a many years. I am able to take good care of my teeth because of them. The services are excellent and very reasonable rates.The facility is extremely clean and very well maintained. I am very happy that I have them as my dentist. I would highly recommend them to anyone who is looking for a reliable and dependable dentistry.

Dr. Lad and his staff were Awesome Again as always! The level of attention and professionalism is very comforting especially during these most uncertain times. The Lad Dentistry Practice is very Covid-19 conscious and the steps and processes they have implemented made feel very safe and comfortable at their office. I have been a patient for almost 10 years now and will not consider any other dentist practice at all. Thanks again for a very comfortable and positive experience!

If you are looking for a professional and up to date dentist in Temple City area, you are in the right place.  I have been Dr. Chiman and Sunjay Lad’s patient since I moved to TC in 2009.  When I first went there in 2009, I had a chipped front tooth that couple dentists had tried to repair for me but didn’t last. Dr. Sunjay repaired it once and it is still intact to now!  And they have great hygienists, all of them are sweet, meticulous and always gave me the best cleaning.  Since 2009, I have my teeth cleaned twice a year, one root canal and three crowns done by Dr. Chiman Lad.  No complication. I am staying with them as long as they stayed in practice. I have referred both my children and husband (but my husband is also seeing a periodontist on regular basis) and couple people to them. I am in the healthcare profession as well and I know what is a great running healthcare practice. This office is definitely best of the best. They care and reasonable and you are definitely in good hands.

I recently took a professional head shots for my commercial websites and one of my favorites is the photo in which I’m showing the wonderful smile I feel I owe to the great aesthetic work of Lad Family Dentistry. I have been a patient of theirs for going on 40 years, and never thought that at 67 I would be so confident of my smile. In addition to how they make me look, I always enjoy how I leave feeling well cared for and happy, since everyone from the father-son team of the doctor Lads to the lovely ladies in the front office to the assistant technicians are positive, caring, and a pleasure to be around. Small wonder, I leave with a smile both on my face and in my heart! Thank you, Lad Family Dentistry 🙂 Trudi Knoedler San Gabriel, CA

Drs. Chiman and Sunjay Lad have thoroughly prepared to provide safe and high quality dental services in the new COVID-19 world. Drs Lad have taken all precautions for minimizing risk and maximizing safety for their staff and their patients…everything from socially distant waiting spaces and workflows, shielding when interacting with front desk staff or in the office space, closing every other treatment area to allow for extra distance between patients receiving care and extra masking and other protective gear that goes above and beyond what I understand are patient care guidelines. Thank you, Dr Lad and Dr. Sunjay for bringing an important service back online in a way that gives your patients and staff a sense of confidence and safety.

Tim N. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a brand new patient and I very rarely write reviews but I do need to say making a appointment here was one of the BEST  decisions I have ever made….This is by far above the best dentist I have ever been to.  Top notch sevice and professionalism!!!!!! Dr lad and his staff are my heroes and now I have the smile I’ve always wanted……Thank you

Paul S. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ladd senior is great dentist. I had some work done on my teeth to fill the space. He did an outstanding job bonding the area. I have gone back 3 times for bonding over the course of 5 years and every time is outstanding. For my medical dental visit he pawned me off to his son. But I am ok with it. Dr. Ladd is older and can’t see every type of patient. Needs to enjoy the golden years!

Gentle, compassionate, and patient. Highly recommend Chiman Lad. Understands differing pain tolerances; that enduring pain is not a measure of “manliness” – it is an indication of stupidity. Gone are the days of biting a bullet or a belt to alleviate pain. It has been proven that if one experiences less pain during a procedure, one will heal more quickly.

Norman Sauvé (Source: Google)


My wife and I have had the very best care for many years. The modifications that were made a couple years ago to include state of the art dental equipment have proven the Lad Family’s continued commitment and desire to be the best Dental Office.

Runee P. from Metairie, LA (Source: Yelp)


I really love this dentist office, to the point that whenever I fly back home to visit, I will squeeze in an appointment even though I have tried other dentists in my new home state. Literally every single staff member I have ever dealt with has been very pleasant and personable. Both Dr. Chiman Lad and Dr. Sunjay Lad are very professional, will answer any questions and concerns you have, and make you feel very at ease. Another big plus for me is the office is very punctual– you make your appointment and you’ll be in at the time you sceduled with hardly (if any) wait time

Eileen S. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Lad Family Dentistry for at least 5 years, but probably longer, and can’t recommend them enough. I see mainly Dr. Sunjay, the younger Lad. He is always friendly and thorough. The office itself is newly remodeled and modern. When I had to get a filling done, they had this machine for the numbing shot that slowly administers the anesthetic and practically painless. As a child, I remember that was always the most painful part for me, the old school injection. Highly recommend!

I have been a patient for over 30 years. Dr. C. Lad, and now his son, Dr. S. Lad are excellent, professional dentists. I have always had a pleasant experience in a very comfortable environment. I have recommended several people to them and they are all happy with service they have received. I never have any “fear of dentists” going to Dr. Lad. Everyone in the office is pleasant and cheerful. Their service is of the highest quality.

Richard D. from Franklin, TN (Source: Yelp)


From the minute you walk in to the minute you leave you feel like your in the Best Hands POSSIBLE!!!! No one particularly likes going to the Dentist but they make it as easy as possible .I’ve been traveling from Nashville for 20 years to continue getting my teeth Clean and receiving various treatments. The whole Team is amazing ,and there new facility … State of the art!!!….Way to knock it out of the Park!!!

Ron P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to several dentist in my lifetime and some of the procedures Dr Lad used are some of the most advanced I have ever seen. The attention and service from the entire staff at Lad Family dentistry is also among the highest. I moved to California 7 years ago so when I first came to their office I needed quite a bit of work done. I was able to get all of the work done in just a few visits, if I needed to change one they always found me an appointment that would fit my schedule. Dr Lad has now convinced me to come for regular check-ups and take my home dental care to a new level.

Nothing but the best…service, staff and doctors. I have been going to Dr. Chiman Lad (renamed Lad Family Dentistry with the addition of Dr. Lad’s son, Sunjay Lad, DDS–a proud day for Dad to be sure) for over 35 years and I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else for my dental care, even though I travel almost 90 miles round-trip for each visit. The entire office staff is very genuine, friendly and caring, and they treat each patient as if they were family. If you want a dental office that is willing go “above and beyond” in the care of their patients, then you have found it with Dr. C. “Old Guy” and Dr. S. “Good-looking Guy” Lad (nicknames courtesy of my 93-year-old mother, who is also a long-time, 35+-year patient) and their staffs. After your first visit to their newly remolded, expanded and updated office and you meet the staff and experience the highest quality dental care you will ever receive, you definitely won’t want to go anywhere else–ever!

S. H. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Both Drs. Chiman Lad and Sunjay Lad are fantastic dentists. I’ve been using the Lad Family Practice for 10+ years and have always enjoyed going there. Here’s my quick summary that I share with friends: Semi-annual cleanings: – Teeth are always cleaned properly and painlessly (no stabbing at your gums!) – You can have a conversation with both Chiman and Sunjay, and the hygienists – The hygienists and support staff know you by name (and almost voice on the phone) Dental work (cavities, etc.): – Quick, low-pain, and clean work – Sunjay will explain what he’s doing in your mouth and why it matters (if you ask) – They will let you know when they are doing something that might hurt or requires you to be still. They won’t just jab you or force your head into a position. Essentially, both Chiman and Sunjay are exactly how you wish all doctors were: great bedside manner, on-time appointments, great work. This is a family run practice that takes pride in their work. They also donate their services both in LA and abroad for those in need. A few other details: – Easy parking behind the office – Easy access from Temple City, Pasadena, Arcadia, San Marino, San Gabriel, El Monte, Rosemead, and other areas (Rosemead Blvd, Huntington Drive, Temple City Blvd) – Great hours (for before and after work and school) – Optional text message reminders and confirmations for appointments

I have been going to Dr. Lad’s office since I started at my last employer in 2002 and they are wonderful people. Since then, they’ve remodeled to a very modern, comfy and clean practice along with another Lad… “Young Lad” as they refer to Dr. Lad’s son, who’s a great addition to the team. Both are very caring, gentle, honest and personable which is more than what you can ask for in a dentist… really. I of course absolutely recommend them to everyone with a big smile – teeth and all. 🙂

Dr. Lad has been my dentist since he began his practice in 1977. I grew up in Temple City and although I no longer live in the area I continue to drive a long distance for my dental visits. Honestly, Lad Family Dentistry doctors & hygienists are the best! The staff are friendly, courteous & professional. They practice gentle dental care, your oral health is of utmost importance to the entire team, no high sale pressure for procedures not warranted. I promise you, if you make an appointment with Lad Family Dentistry you will never want to go anywhere else!

My most recent visit to Lad Family Dentistry was June 1, the week after local businesses started opening during the pandemic. Social distancing and mask-wearing was impeccable, and I was phoned a week before my visit to be certain I was not ill and in need of cancelling. Temp was taken upon entering, hand sanitizer provided, and I felt I was in a safe, COVID-free environment. Of course, my teeth cleaning was great, as it has been for the over 40 years I have been a regular patient at LFD. The best service, the best people, and I highly recommend them!

Teresa K. from Arcadia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for over 16 years! My co-worker told me about Dr. Chiman Lad. Before coming here I was deathly afraid of coming to the dentist. Dr. Chiman Lad was gentle and kind. I even look forward to coming! I remember thinking the only thing he could improve was that his clinic was outdated. They have since completely remodeled it and they did an amazing job! Dr. Sunjay Lad, Dr. Lad’s son, joined the practice and he is also the best! Our kids come here, too. They have never had to go to a pediatric dentist because Dr. Sunjay is so great with them. I have recommended them to by closest friends and I will continue to do so. Thank you, Lad family dentistry for taking such great care of my kids and I!

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


I have never liked going to the dentist. All the stuff that goes in your mouth and your jaw hurts at the end. Ugh. But Dr. Lad changed all that–both Lads. They are wonderful, I’ve been to many dentists due to changes in insurance and these two are the best. They are kind, empathetic, and professional, their whole staff is. They treat you like family and make you feel welcome. Everything is spotless and you can tell that they take great pride in their office and work. Cleanliness is next to godliness, especially at a dentist’s office. Another wonderful thing is that you never wait more than five minutes, ever. This is what makes them so special: they value you and show it by never making you wait for them. I don’t usually do yelp reviews but I found this practice through yelp and I am so glad I did. If you have a fear of dentists this place will take that fear away!

Heidi A. from San Dimas, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office since I was a child. Even though I have since moved from Temple City my husband and I make the drive back for the excellent care we receive. The staff and Dr. Lad (both)  are amazing. Everyone is kind and competent. The office is clean and beautifully decorated. You will receive excellent care from everyone. I have had many procedures done over the years and highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a great dentist.

It was my first time going back to see my favorite dentists since the pandemic started and I was a little nervous since I haven’t been getting out in public too much. If this is your situation, you can rest assured that you’re in good hands with the Lad Dentistry team. I was called the day before my appointment to answer several health related questions to make sure that I wasn’t coming down with anything that I would bring to their office. I pulled into the parking lot and called the office and was able to get in right away. The first thing I got after saying hello thru my mask was a shot of hand sanitizer on my hands followed by a temperature check. I had just driven in from Orange County without using air conditioning on a pretty warm day and my temp was 100 point something. However, after a few minutes in their air conditioned office, my temp came down to a more normal 98.7. I was there for a routine cleaning and some x-rays and everything went well with no complications. So a happy ending for me as I had no cavities. The moral of the story – don’t put off going to the dentist. They are following all the established precautions and protocols to keep you and them safe.

As usual since 1991, this current cleaning visit was very pleasant and professional. The cleaning included full mouth x-ray using very modern digital equipment, very gentle and complete cleaning, a checkup by Dr. Sunjay and hygiene and issue related consultations and informative explanations and options. Note I am retired and pay out of pocket and find this visit affordable and allow me to continue using my dentist of many years

David L. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had some sort of dental problems most of my life and I have seen many dentists through out the San Gabriel Valley. One day I needed something semi-emergency and I found LAD FAMILY DENTISTRY! I am so glad that I did. NEVER before have I had the level of quality that I am experiencing at LAD Dentistry. Beautiful very clean environment that feels very welcoming and comforting especially for a dentists office. A warm and friendly staff at every level of care, from reception to office staff, assistants, hygienists and the Doctors themselves. It is truly an amazing experience to have the feeling that your dentist is your friend and partner in your dental care and they truly want what is best for you! GREAT JOB LAD FAMILY DENTISTRY!!!!!

Because of my extreme fear of dentists, I had stopped going to them in my early 20s. In the 80s, my husband suggested that I visit his dentist, Dr. Chiman Lad. It is through Dr. Lad’s expertise, kindness and patience that I have been able to overcome my fears. I am now 76 years old and have been able to retain most of my teeth. I now travel from Oregon for Dr. Lad to take care of all my dental needs. I love his staff too. They are always friendly and professional. I would add an extra star rating if I could.

Aaron K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to the Lad Family Dentistry my entire life and have never had a bad experience, even when my teeth need some more serious work. It confuses me when others are apprehensive about going to the dentist because of the various forms of discomfort that other dentists’ offices invoke, but I’ve never experienced anything of the sort here. Just friendly, highly-skilled professionals who truly care about their patients.

Sevak A. from Glendale, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never had a such thorough and complete dental exam before. Dr. Lad took his time to examine my entire dental and gum anatomy to identify possible diseases or areas where careful monitoring will be required to reverse or prevent further damages. Dr. Chiman Lad is a true professional and a passionate health care provider. He always offers the least invasive and financially reasonable procedures for both cosmetic and medical needs. For example, by other dentists I was always offered an expensive and very invasive veneer to fix a small chipped tooth. But Dr. Lad took care of it with a simple composite filling in a quick and painless 45 minute appointment. I wish I had met Dr. Lad long before but he is mine and my families dentist until he retires.

Dr. Lad provided excellent service when he did a resin surface procedure on one of my teeth last week. Dr. Lad made it a painless procedure and I was on my way in no time flat. I also had my teeth cleaned and X-rays taken by one of Dr Lad’s staff which was done smoothly and efficiently. I would recommend Lad Family Dentistry to anyone looking for dental service. They provide great service and have a great staff.

I have been going to Dr. Chiman Lad and Dr. Sunjay Lad for 3 years, and I am always impressed with their friendly, thorough and skillful care. I have been to many dentist over the years, and the Lad’s consistently deliver 5 star dental care. For once, I actually look forward to going to the dentist. They truly make you feel like you are a part of the family, not just a patient. The staff is equally professional, friendly and efficient. As long as I live within a hundred miles of Lad Family Dentistry, they will be my dentists.

Scott J. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


When i visited Dr. Lads Dentist office for the first time i was very impressed with how the staff and the Doctor where so professional. I went to the Doctors office for a cleaning and a tooth extraction i thought it would be painful but i was suprised that it wasn’t. Dr. Lad took very good care of my problem and very honest about everything i needed in the future regarding my gum care. If your looking for a Dentist i would recommend Everyone to go see Dr. Lad he is the BEST Dentist around. And a Great Dentist is hard to find these days.

Dave C. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to say as a person who as dreaded the dentist since I was a small child, there has never been an event in my life that has caused me more anxiety than a trip to the dentist! I’ve never been to a dentist where the anticipation of pain did not have me beading with sweat before I opened the office doors, and believe me, I have been to way too many dentists in my life. Where on earth did Dr. Lad come from??? The first time in my life I actually did not encounter pain. The moment I walked into the Dr.’s offices, I was greeted by warm friendly staff. My appointment was on-time. Everything was explained to me in a way that I understood the procedures and again everything was painless. I would recommend Dr. Lad to everyone. He truly is the best dentist I have encountered in my life. There is no one that I would ever go to besides him. I can’t thank him and his staff enough for the special care and attention I receive everytime I have an appointment.

Holly Q. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


The office is beautiful, the staff are friendly and both Dr. Lads are incredibly kind, skilled and honest! I have been going to this office for decades – for good reasons.  My kids love and trust everyone in the office as well, and actually enjoy going to their dentist appointments, which is no easy task for young children.  They are the only dentists that I have been to that I highly recommend.

I felt very safe getting my teeth clean. There were no surprises in the procedures they explained prior to my appointment. I waited in my car until my hygienist was ready for me and then they called me to come in. When I entered the office, I was asked to wash my hands and take my temperature and review if there were any changes to the questionnaire I took over the phone when I confirmed my appointment. They asked me to call back should I develop any of the covid 19 virus symptoms in the next 14 days. My hygienist, Danielle wore a mask, gloves and at times a plastic shield while cleaning my teeth and Dr. Lad wore a mask and gloves during his exam. I was asked to gargle with hydrogen peroxide before Danielle began cleaning my teeth. She explained that the hepa filter is a bit loud and that there was also a UV light to kill any germs in the room I was in. While making future appointments, there was a large glass panel between us and all staff members were wearing masks. I thank the entire staff for taking these safety measures.
