If you are need of a root canal…this is the place to go. I’m a BIG CHICKEN when it comes to the dentist and getting work but here at Modern Dentistry they make me feel so relaxed. No pain, no discomfort. Watched one of my favorite shows while it all happened. Always feel like family here. I love it! Recommened it! And now I can’t wait for my next appointment. That’s how great this Dentistry is!

If you are looking for an excellent dentist that goes above and beyond for her patients, Dr. Thai and Lakewood Modern Dentistry is the place for you.  I have been a patient for over a year now and I wouldn’t dream of going anywhere else.  I have had everything from an emergency abscess to root canals performed.  I have been seen in emergency situations, but never at the expense of or before the existing daily appointments.  Dr. Thai has stayed late and met me at the office on what would normally be a “closed” day.  I have always been treated with courtesy and respect.  It is true that Dr. Thai’s office is aesthetically beautiful and she does have a Keurig Coffee station in the waiting room.  Dr. Thai wants everyone that enters her establishment to feel comfortable.  Whether your in the chair watching Netflix waiting for the numbing to take effect, or sitting in the lobby waiting for a family member, Dr. Thai has you covered.  Some people would call that superficial garbage, but I call that being considerate of your clientele.   So, if you want an honest review from an actual patient who has spent countless hours in Dr. Thai’s dental chair, her it is.  Or, you can look for those who always know someone in the business who knows more or does it better and feels that they are justified in leaving a nasty review out of spite.

Janette G. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


First of all the whole office is very clean. They are also abiding by all safety precautions due to COVID-19. I felt safe the moment I walked in. My two kids and myself had our temperature check before going inside. I also loved that they made sure no one else entered the lobby to ensure our safety.   The whole staff is amazing and I was truly impressed with your phenomenal customer service. Dr. Thai was also incredible she  took her  time and made sure to  focus on all my needs. I extremely satisfied with Lakewood Modern Dentistry it was our first visit and we are happy we have Lakewood Modern Dentistry as our primary family dentist they met all our expectations.

Really like this dentist. Very new modern equipment and lots of high tech bells and whistles. Nice docs front desk staff. The only downside is their decor is some cookie cutter template they picked out of a catalog but hey.. they are dentists not designers.

Louise A. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Haven’t been to the dentist for 6 years and I was on the lookout for a new one. I came here because my boyfriend just recently went here a week ago and had a great experience. After having my appointment today, I felt the need to make a yelp review because of the wonderful experience I had as well. First of all, the clinic looks very modern and clean inside. It looked like a spa more than a dental office. Every room has its own TV and Netflix so you’ll always feel entertained! I was so engaged with watching 3 episodes of Gossip Girl that I didn’t even feel the typical discomfort and pain from getting dental work. And trust me, I’ve always hated going to the dentist because I hate seeing all the needles and sharp tools going into my mouth. With Netflix on, I was so distracted that I didn’t feel much discomfort at all. Dr. Thai and her assistants were super nice and amicable. While they were working on my teeth, we were all just laughing about the show “Friends”, talking about Disneyland, and how Dr. Thai’s youngest daughter still believes in Santa Claus. I felt really comfortable with Dr. Thai and her staff and she addressed all my concerns and answered all my questions in a genuine and non-judgmental manner. I had a wonderful first visit here and I look forward to come back in 3 months for my next appointment. I DEFINITELY RECOMMEND DR. THAI!

Thomas B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai has been nothing but amazing when it comes to helping me with a couple of issues that I’ve had this year.   The most recent issue was when I cracked one of my teeth on a Sunday morning.   I was in so much pain I couldn’t stand it.  I called first thing Monday morning and they were able to get me in on the same day.   She was super busy that day as well, but still took the time to numb me so my pain wasn’t an issue.   She actually stayed open later for me and she ended up removing my tooth and my pain.   I don’t usually give reviews but I think this place is well worth it.   Her staff is always friendly and helpful, the office is super clean and pleasant as well.  Thank you again Dr. Thai for taking care of me and getting rid of my pain!

Christina E. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughter received dental treatment from Doctor Thai on August 5th, 2016. She is 14 years old. She was very impressed with the way Doctor Thai treated her as a patient. She also said that she was very comfortable during the procedure. We have been to other dentists in which sh felt uncomfortable because the Dentist and their assistants were talking in other languages while the treatment was being done. She had absolutely no complaints and left feeling great!!!! Thank you, Doctor Thai…. we will be back.

Racelyn P. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love coming here. The decor is so soothing to the eyes and the staff is always so friendly. They make you feel comfortable with being at the dentist! Whenever I have to come to get my teeth cleaned or for any other reason, they always make it a point to make sure that I’m always comfortable 🙂

Melba H. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr Thai for awhile and she is an excellent dentist! I had implants placed and have very few issues. I would highly recommend Dr Thai for anyone is a concerned (afraid) of the going to the dentist  Her office is absolutely amazing I feel like I’m in Spa, very relaxing and contemporary. Not to mention the staff is very friendly, caring and will work with you! Shout out to Dr Thai, Renee and Caroline…

Alison T. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing décor!! I felt like I was in a spa. Everything looks beautiful and elegant. Other than that, Dr. Christy Thai was very helpful and made me feel extremely comfortable. I live 45 minutes away but the drive is worth the service. I actually look forward to going to the dentist now.

Valerie M. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai was very welcoming. The staff Renee was great! I am really happy with my choice. The place looks amazing. Very cozy and modern (like the name). Did not have to wait long. Registration was quick and efficient. I recommend this place to everyone. Thank you for a great experience

Emilia I. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just went for my first dentists appointment in quite a while and leading up to it I was a little apprehensive.  So, given that this office accepted my insurance and looking at other reviews I decided to give them a try.  I have to tell you that from the moment that I arrived I felt very comfortable with their service.  Everyone was very kind and gentle, which I really appreciated.  Dr. Thai is very thorough and she is a nice lady so I was really pleased.  My treatment plan was easily accommodated, so if you are on a budget it greatly helps out.  I don’t like hard sells and I never felt pushed, so it gives me the impression that they are genuinely interested in your health.  It is also a nice perk that their office is very pristine and has a great atmosphere, but if a practice isn’t good, that doesn’t matter.  In this case you get the best of both and you get to watch Netflix in your chair while your being worked on, what can be better than that!

Derek T. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a great experience with Lakewood Modern Dentistry.  I went there for a second opinion because its hard to trust a dentist now and days.   After comparing my prior recommend treatment with Dr. Thai’s treatment.  I decided to get my treatment done at Lakewood Modern dentistry because the staff was very professional and their service gave me a feeling of “family” and not just a client ($).   I ended up getting a deep cleaning and a crown.    I’ve been to a lot of dentist.  Most the dental offices that you come across sees a new client ($).  Cause of that reason I’ve done my research about dental treatments and the consequences of not having treatment done.  Reading some of the peoples yelp about Lakewood Modern Dentistry makes me laugh, because if you need a deep cleaning and not get it done its just sad. Some people just don’t care about their health.  Imagine the bad breath, and bloody gums when you smile.   THANK YOU  DR. THAI AND HER STAFF FOR THEIR EXCELLENT SERVICE.

Gerardo B. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


Overall, the service I received right from the beginning to very end was way beyond my expectations. Dr. Christy Thai came highly recommended through a coworker of mine, & I must say that I am so glad that I made the change when I did. The office staff was extremely courteous and knowledgeable as they answered all of my questions. Dr. Thai was an absolute breath of fresh air and I would definitely recommend her practice to anybody currently seeking a new dentist. The office is extremely clean and modern. The overall feel of the lobby & the exam rooms are very welcoming & relaxing. The treatment provided by both the dental assistants and the dentist is virtually painless all the way around. On a scale from 1-10, I would give Dr. Christy Thai’s practice, well let’s just say its beyond the scale’s rating. Dr. Thai is phenomenal in her work & her staff is equally as professional & friendly. I’ve never said this about a dentists but I have to admit I am definitely looking forward to my next appointment 🙂

I was referred to  Lakewood Modern Dentistry by our Pediatric Dentist, .  Dr. Christy Thai for more than 15 years and she does exquisite dentistry. H she was a provider of my dental . plan so I made the appointment.  Wow. So gentile while being thorough. Now I am sure our family has the best General Dentist in Dr. Thai and the best Pediatric Dentist

The staff is so very friendly and compassionate. I could not get over how clean and new the office looks and the stations are awesome. The latest digital X-ray imaging, Netflix while the treatment is taking place, the delicate and sensitivity the doctor and technical staff have was very impressive. I felt at ease and relaxed( if you know me then you know THAT almost impossible). They take almost all PPO plans and are very concerned about finances and the out of pocket costs are very reasonable and acceptable. I have neglected my teeth forever and the need was now and I have every confidence and comfort knowing I’m in good hands. They worked out a very well detailed treatment plan and spread out all of my treatments to accommodate my schedule and finances. I now have a real dentist office I can call mine. I recommend everyone to go visit, get a free exam and enjoy the modern dentistry practiced there.  Ask for Renee when you call and tell her I recommended you. No more runarounds and bait n switch stuff here. Dr. Christy Thai is the owner and dentist. Call them- you won’t regret it. They love Tesoro people! We are in the plan.

Overall I had a great experience and Lakewood Modern Dentistry. Right when you walk in you ate greeted with a warm and pleasant attitude. Everyone is wonderful and professional. As much as I am afraid of the needles, Dr. Thai has a gentle touch, swift & precise. The office has state of the art equipments and a TV for each station so you can relax. Thank you & God continue to bless all of you!

William M. from Temple City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I appreciate the staff at Lakewood Modern Dentistry. Everyone is professional and extremely courteous. They explained everything clearly and thoroughly, and made me aware of my options, without me feeling there was any pressure one way or the other. The facility is extremely clean and smells nice, not like a typical dental office smell. I am so glad I found Dr. Thai as my new dentist.

Eric R. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great place to be at especially it’s a dental office. Great ppl In the office and Dr Thai is great with your teeth. waiting room is awesome and homie. The patient rooms are clean and all hi-tech equipment. The best part of it is when you’re waiting and getting your teeth done you can watch Netflix 🙂 sure it’s a modern place but the workers are friendly with a smile (Naz, Carolina, Denise & Dora) and (Renee) works with you with payments & scheduling. My overall experience there is above and beyond what I expected. Great Job Lakewood Modern Dentistry. Will refer family and friends.

Christina D. from Paramount, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can not stress how much I love this place!!  I will forever be a patient of Dr. Thai and will be sending all of my family and friends to her office.  Everything was explained in great detail.  The office is immaculately clean and beautiful.  Like the name says, it is Modern.  Especially the equipment.  I couldn’t believe some of the things I was seeing.  I am actually looking forward to going back!  Never thought I’d say that!

Cindy N. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came across this place because I needed to pick a new dentist due to my insurance. Kinda based it off of pictures but once I stepped foot into the establishment I was greeted by such warm and inviting decor and not to mention staff. Dr Thai and staff are awesome. I got my teeth cleaned as well as some fillings and I’d have to say I left quite satisfied even though my mouth was numb. First of all the establishment has all the state of the art equipment that makes visiting the dentist easy. All paperwork is paperless and on the computer. When the take you to the back and you’re seated in the dentist chair you’re there for good, X-rays were taken right in your seat because they had a machine that was able to be pulled out the wall and then put away. Pictures were also taken with a camera as big as a pen and immediately uploaded to the computer. While in the same chair they have an over head TV with Netflix and tons of movies and shows for you to choose from to distract you from whatever work you’re getting done. When you’re done with whatever procedure they give you a little care package every time with toothpaste, toothbrush, and floss. I’ll be coming back here to get my teeth cleaned and hopefully not any more fillings.

Michael C. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to LMD for years and love it.  Dr. Thai and her staff are fantastic. I got Invisalign here and love the results. The staff is friendly and personable.  If you are looking for a great dentist with a great staff this is the place.

Martha C. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I been coming to Dr Thai for some time ,I like to share my experience at lake wood modern dentistry with you Office is very modern , clean and soothing , Staff is friendly a bit busy because they multi task but that makes it more personal since you see more regulars and they get greeted by name. Coming from a person that didn’t like going to the dentist due to horrible experiences from other places I like to share that Dr Thai is very patient understanding when it comes to what your options are  I like the fact that she answers questions and doubts and she’s very knowledgeable at what she does … I always leave happy I have been to other dentist offices where service is not professional Price wise well you can’t put a price on your smile ,that’s  priceless , we all have different ranges on what you like to invest in your smile Don’t hesitate choosing this office you will be please Do make an appointment Thank you Dr Thai n staff for fixing n and saving my molar

MUST READ!!!: It’s been about a year or two since I’ve been to any dentist due to the scary experiences I’ve had with dentist in Long Beach. When I say scary I mean heavy handed non caring dentist who just go to work for a check and Try to finesse you for every dollar. Now Lakewood Modern Dentistry changed my fear to a warm, welcoming, Excellent  experience. When I walked into the office I was blown away from the inside decor to the warm welcoming receptionist greetings. They had complementary coffee and water, and the facility was super clean!!! Dr. Thai greeted me as I was was nervously waiting, her warm smile and confidence in her voice made me feel at ease. When she began my work she was asking me if I was okay. She actually cared about how fearful I was and walked me through every step of the procedure. You Can’t ask for more right?, Wrong. Then walks in Carolina who I believe was her assistant and began to make me feel even more comfortable in my own skin by explaining what’s being done and how to prevent further damage to my teeth. They informed me so much I feel like I can become a dentist haha. After my procedure was done I was afraid my mouth would be in so much pain after the local anesthesia wore off. I healed in no time, with little to no pain. I am extremely blown away by the professionally at this location. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS LOCATION!!! The prices are reasonable and the staff is truly one of a kind. Check this place out for yourself you won’t be disappointed. See you ladies in a few months for my follow up and cleaning. You guys rock!!

What a delightful surprise we got when we had our first appointments with Lakewood Modern Dentestry. Struck first by the simple elegance of the waiting room, we were then impressed with the personable and professional interaction with the staff. Dr. Thai herself is incredible. She communicates clearly and concisely, in the most caring and reassuring manner. She’s both competent and gentle. The equipment is so modern that it’s nearly futuristic. This is what dentistry would be like on starship Enterprise. As an extra bonus–and pleasant distraction–you are allowed to make a selection from Net Flicks to enjoy during your procedure. Finally, the proposed treatment plan, including cost, is printed out. The staff reviews each item with the patient.

Bryan B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Always a pleasure going to Lakewood Modern Dentistry. Our whole family switched to LMD a couple years ago and have never looked back. I recommend them to anyone looking to switch dentists in the area. They are fantastic!

Phil W. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai and her professional staff are courteous, knowledgeable, friendly, and empathetic. I’ve never been a big fan of visiting the dentist. Something about large and sharp tools being jammed into my mouth may have a little to do with that. That being said, when I go in for my regular check-up/teeth cleaning, I know I’m in safe hands with Dr. Thai. She’s great with her patients (as is her staff) and I always feel like they are going to take care of me. It TOOK a long time to find a dentist I was comfortable with. I thank my lucky stars and my teeth for the exceptional dentistry talents of Dr. Thai.

Melissa P. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been almost a year since I first visited Lakewood Modern Dentistry, 3 crowns, a few cavities, a cleaning and a wisdom tooth later I am still happy as ever. Dr. Thai has taken me last Minute when I am in so much pain I am in tears. they are so accommodating and understanding & willing to do everything they can to make you feel better and fix your teeth. I’m surprised by the review I’ve seen indicating that her and her staff are not caring and only in it for the money because that couldn’t be further from the truth. Dr Thai really cares about her patients and will do all she can to help you. I always get a call back if I leave a message or Dr Thai is busy. They thoroughly go over the suggested treatment plan with me every time and allow me to make the best decision for myself as what I want to do and what I an afford to do. They’ve even been kind enough to help me with payment plans in tight financial times. I’ve said it before but I really won’t go to another dentist after finding them gem of a place

I LOVE Dr Christy Thai and her team. They are so professional and friendly. I was anxious at first because I had a bad experience as a child but Dr. Thai kept me informed every step of the way. Since I had such a GREAT experience at her office, I’ve recommended her to my family and friends. THANK YOU DR. THAI FOR YOUR EXPERTISE!!

Seiji S. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Thai and her team are simply the best.  I’ve been a patient of Dr. Thai’s for about 6 years and have entrusted her with everything from general care to complicated implants.  In fact I trust her so much that my children are also her patients (and they enjoy watching Netflix while in the chair).  She genuinely cares about her patients and never tries to “sell” any unnecessary procedures.  And it’s remarkable how polite she is given her impressive credentials and considerable success.

MUST READ!!!! I had such an amazing experience with DR. Thai, and everyone that’s works here. From Jessica at the front desk to Carolina her assistant (who is just as knowledgeable as most other dentist I’ve came across) my experience was AMAZING from start to finish. I had got my wisdom teeth extracted and had NO DISCOMFORT during the procedure and little to no pain after. The whole time I felt so comfortable especially because they were walking me through the process. Letting me know when I would feel a small light pinch to pressure. I’m just personally blown away by the work being done here I am 29 years old and have seen many dentist. DR. Thai is the beat one I’ve came across so far and now WONT go anywhere else. Thank you guys so much for the experience and professionally! You have a life long client now.
