Donna B. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Lakewood Smiles for about a year and a half now.  I have not been happy with the last few dentists I have been to, and being a nervous dental patient, I put off finding a new one.  A really old gold crown falling off a tooth forced me to start looking for a new dentist.  When I saw nothing but 5 stars on all the Yelp reviews, I felt I had found my new dentist.  I checked my insurance, and they took it.  YAY.  I called them that day.  They were able to get me in right away.  Their name – Lakewood Smiles – is perfect.  Dr. William was amazing.  I no longer felt I had found my new dentist, I knew I had.  I needed to have the tooth pulled; she was caring and gentle.  I needed to have some additional work done on two other teeth, she was great.  The entire staff is wonderful.  Daniel patiently explains treatment plans and insurance.  Myra is great assisting Dr. William, making sure I am comfortable.  My last visit a few days ago for my 6 month cleaning and check up, I met Dr. Girgis and Sharon, who are new to the practice.  I had an old filling that had deteriorated and the tooth had a bit of decay. Dr. Girgis was wonderful with the drilling and setting in the new filling.  It is on the gum line in the front, I cannot see it all!  Sharon was patient and on the mark with the xrays.  I am so happy I found Lakewood Smiles.  Take some time and read the reviews.  Trust me, everything everyone has said, I say, “Ditto!”  Lakewood Smiles — Dr. William, Dr. Girgis, Daniel, Myra, Sharon, you are all great.  Thank you.  Looking forward to seeing them in 6 months for my next check up and cleaning

Lakewood Smile and staff are amazing! Every one makes us feel like we’re family always so sweet and friendly! Service is superb, Love Dr. Nancy and assistant. Front desk Daniel is super helpful as well also love the calm feeling when you come in to the office. It’s never hectic hurry up type feeling. We’ve been coming here for about 5 years now and we always receive the same awesome service

The staff is very friendly. Treatment was very very good. It’s hard to find a good dentist I’m glad I came here. I had deep cleaning done. I’m not a huge fan of needles, the Dr has a tool vibrates and distracts you from the poke. It was super easy and pain free. Definitely recommend it

Jonathan L. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)



I know it’s not the norm to love going to the dentist, especially with the amount of work I’ve needed, but seeing Dr. William is always great. She, and her entire staff, are down to earth and make every visit amazing. She makes sure to explain everything in an easy to understand way and makes you feel like you are her only patient. I highly recommend them!

Nancy R. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. William and Lakewood Smiles. For most of my life I had a large gap in between my two front teeth. Some people said it added character, others said it was good luck, my family said it was trademark… however, I just didn’t like it. I wanted to change it for most of my childhood and all of my adulthood. I saw many orthodontists and many said it either couldn’t be done or would have to be done at very high cost at a minimum of 2 years. Those were traditional braces – Invisalign would of course cost even more. I didn’t have that kind of money or time. I was really discouraged and began to give up on the idea of braces… UNTIL I went to see Dr. Nancy William and she explained to me that she offers a service called 6-Month Smiles, which is basically short-term cosmetic braces that match the color of your teeth (so most people won’t even notice you are wearing them). They were a very reasonable price compared to traditional braces and were only expected to take around 6 months so I decided to go for it. I can’t say enough good things about Dr. William and the care she put into my teeth. As if all of that is not enough, Dr. William also has an incredibly warm and endearing personality – she makes you feel like a friend and not just a patient. I LOVE my new smile and I owe it to Dr. William and Lakewood Smiles!

I am both thrilled and amazed….just goes to show that sometimes the very thing you are looking for is right there in front of you. This Dental practice is incredible! We decided to try it as it is literally only blocks from our home and we liked the fact that Dr. William is the only dentist in this practice, so when you make your appointment with her, it is her whom you receive. She is delightful as is her entire staff. Warm, friendly, patient, and sincere. There is no rushing or panicking, the Doctor takes her time with you, is very gentle but also very confident. I am thrilled we found this jewel in our own backyard!

Yvette T. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin of how amazing Lakewood Smiles is? Professional, clean, friendly, kind, and one of my favorites,  painless! All the doctors at Lakewood Smiles are great! Dr. Williams takes her time and really cares about her patients. My kids and I have been going there for 2 years and the service has been consistently impressive. The entire staff demonstrate what a healthy, positive, and skilled work environment should look like. Thank you Lakewood Smiles!

Andrew A. from La Palma, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not usually one to write reviews, but the care I recieved at Lakewood smiles is definitely something to brag about! With half of my  front  tooth  broken off and without a regular dentist I was facing a dental emergency. Based off  a family friends recommendation I called Lakewood smiles. Although they were closed the automated message directed me to dr. Williams. I explained my desperation and the urgency of my situation as I had to have this fixed before work that same afternoon. Although she had a book schedule she was able to fit me in. When I arrived at the dental office the environment and staff were warm and inviting. Despite having a booked schedule I had the staffs support and Care from the minute I walked in the door (It was truly a VIP experience). During the procedure Dr Williams made me feel comfortable and educated me on the process along the way. This took away the anxiety I I have experienced with other dentist in the past.At the end my tooth looked and felt better than before. The quality of care supersedes others. I highly recommend Lakewood  smiles!!!!

Doug B. from Sunrise, FL (Source: Yelp)


NOT a fan of the dentist, however, Dr. Williams and her staff are some of the kindest and most caring people that I have met in a very long time. They are very conscientious of your concerns and your needs and make you feel as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend Dr. Williams to anyone out there that does not like going to the dentist. I now have a renewed faith in going to the dentist especially with the care given at Lakewood Smiles

Hands down the best dentist that I have ever visited and I have just switched over from my other dentist of 10+ years. Dr. William was completely thorough in her explanation of what’s going on with my teeth and possible causes and best courses of treatment. They even explained the billing process so I don’t get a surprise two weeks after my visit. The staff are all wonderful and completely competent in their jobs. If they have room for you, I would highly recommend you come in for a check-up

Michael S. from Los Alamitos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I think they call it Lakewood Smiles because everyone here is always smiling!  What a great dental practice.  I never had a consistent dentist before this because, well, going to the dentist sucks!  The good news is that it does not have to suck any more!  Both Dr. William and Dr. Girgis are exceptional dentists who will always make you feel comfortable.  In fact, they are so exceptional that my wife and I drive over from Orange County just to come here!

Moamen R. from Montclair, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came in for a basic cleaning and Dr. William noticed that I might need a root canal, and sure enough, I called 2 weeks later. I was hesitant to say the least since had never done such a procedure, but I couldn’t be happier with the root canal and the crown. Dr. William was so kind, understanding and always had a positive attitude during my visits. She was very patient, explaining everything that needed to be done. I’ve told all my friends and family about her. Thanks Dr. William!

Holly L. (Source: Zocdoc)


I am a new patient and I was a little apprehensive. The office staff set me at ease. I typically have difficulty with x-rays but they made the process as easy and successful as possible. The doctor showed me everything she was doing and described in detail the work needing to be done. The billing people contacted my insurance and made sure that I knew exactly what the financial obligations would be and why. It was a lovely experience!

Elizabeth R. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


Amazing dental office! I never really liked going to the dentist, but I always have a wonderful experience here. As soon as you walk in, you are greeted with friendly smiles and quality service. The place is welcoming, professional, and very clean. I’ve been coming here recently and they all go above and beyond. Dr. Girgis is genuine, caring, and always makes me feel comfortable. He pays attention to detail and the results are always exceptional! Both Dr. Girgis and Dr. William are extremely knowledgeable and take their time to answer all of my questions. They really make you feel like family! I highly recommend Lakewood Smiles. I won’t be going anywhere else!

Amanda M. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is by far the best I have ever been to! As someone who is terrified of getting dental work done, I can definitely say this was the easiest and most comfortable experience I have ever had. I was fortunate enough to have both dentists check my teeth out, Dr. Williams and the newest dentist, Dr. Abraam Girgis. Dr. Girgis was so gentle and took his time examining and cleaning my teeth. He walked me through the process since he sensed that I was a little bit nervous, and consistently checked in to see how I was doing. I will definitely be returning to this office and highly recommend both dentists!

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


With three growing kids and and husband scared of the dentist it seemed like a good dentist was not in our forecast.  However Dr Willams and and her wonderful staff have proven this incorrect.  My husband has been there a few times and is booking appointments regularly.  My kids love the individual treatments they receive each time they go.  And for me, i love the flexabiltly, experience and atmospher of Lakewood Smiles.  We will always return to Lakewood Smiles

Angela R. from Phoenix, AZ (Source: Yelp)


I was so hesitant to visit at first because my past experiences with the dentist were hardly ever enjoyable. But Dr. William, Mayra, and Daniel made me feel so comfortable and always explained what was going to happen before it did. I’ve been coming here for a year now. My visits are usually after work and every time I look forward to seeing everyone because they are always pleasant and in a good mood so I get into a positive mood again. I definitely recommend Lakewood Smiles to everyone!

I made an appointment here last minute after Ismiles in Lakewood rudely treated me when I called their facility first. Overall I am happy that I ended going to Lakewood Smiles. The staff is very friendly and welcoming. The doctor will answer any questions or concerns you may have. They really dig deep into finding what it is that you want and need

Eve Mic (Source: Google)


Lakewood Smiles has gone above and beyond to exceed my expectations. Professional, clean, friendly, kind doctors and staff, and one of my favorites, painless! All the doctors at Lakewood Smiles are great! Dr. Williams takes her time and really cares about her patients. My kids and I have been going there for 2 years and the service has been consistently impressive. The entire staff demonstrate what a healthy, positive, and skilled work environment should look like. Thank you Lakewood Smiles!

Brittnie A. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where to begin?! AMAZING DOCTOR! GREAT ASSISTANT! SUPER FRONT OFFICE! I have been coming to Lakewood smiles since 2013 and I wouldn’t go anywhere else! They are like family and I trust them 100%! The atmosphere makes
me feel at home with light music. I love that they know me for me not from my chart that says my name. Dr William is detailed and delicate with her exams and cleanings. And answers any and every question I have. Daniel is great with explaining payment and insurance coverage as well as finding the perfect appointment slot that works! I can’t wait to take my son to her when he’s 1! He already loves the office and the staff from coming with me to my appointments. I have referred friends that later come tell me how much they love them! I highly recommend them!

Richard D. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for about two year now and I must say I love it here. Great service, everyone is friendly there. Since day one they made me feel very welcomed, never had a bad experience. Daniel is friendly and he works around your schedule to set appointments. The dental assistant Mayra is very down to earth and friendly, shes so awesome! Doctor Williams is great at what she does and is also very friendly. Great place over all and I recommend to give this place a try

Tricia Montero (Source: Facebook)


We have since moved from Lakewood and I miss Dr. William and her staff. She is excellent! I took my children to Lakewood Smiles too and they loved her. I had questions with some work that a pediatric dentist wanted to do on my son and when I brought my son in to her she said that it wasn’t necessary, it was in a tooth that would fall out anyway. She is honest, kind, gentle and everything you’d want in a dentist. If you are thinking of going to Lakewood Smiles do not hesitate. You will not be disappointed!

Jade G. from Paramount, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a really good experience here. I went in today for two fillings, the staff made me feel comfortable and at ease. Dr. Williams was great, I would definitely recommend her. I made a good choice coming here

Scott S. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


HIGHLY RECOMMEND! The Best! They have Dental Vibe! I had not been to a dentist in 8 plus years because the pain of getting my teeth cleaned was not worth it and the shot they give you was even worse. Then I heard about Dental Vibe. After researching for a long time I came upon this dental office because they use Dental Vibe. What is Dental Vibe? It is this thing that vibrates while you get the pain numbing shot and it makes it so you do not feel a thing. I was not afraid of the needle, I was afraid of the pain the needle caused. What a great experience. I had 2 cavities filled and one quadrant cleaned. With the dental vibe I would rate my pain level a 1 out of 10. My previous level is a 12 out of 10. Dr. Williams and the front staff is very pleasant and accommodating.. Can’t say enough! I am going back to get 2 more cavities filled and the rest of my quadrants cleaned

Rishal R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


As a dental student at UCLA, I had the opportunity to observe a day in the life of Nancy William. She always considers the patients fears, anxiety and concerns during dental treatment. The office staff is really friendly and always professional. It was a great experience. I was particularly impressed with her work with Six Months Smiles!

Nevin S. from Saint Paul, MN (Source: Yelp)


I love this office! I went in for a cleaning/exam and Dr. Girgis showed me my xrays and explained everything to me. He did a filling for me and he did such a great job super painless! Dr. William and Dr. Girgis are so friendly and knowledgeable and really treat you as if you were a part of their family!

John M. from La Palma, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like many, dentists have been my demise and I have avoided visiting them often due to billing gimmicks and dentists who just put in minimal effort. I was experiencing teeth pain and had a friend refer me here. I checked the yelp reviews and was sold to give it a shot. “Wow” this place has exceeded my expectations. Front desk is exceptionally helpful and friendly making starting and between visits easy. The techs were great and gentle, they made sure i felt comfortable at all times and really took their time during my cleaning. Dr. William was outstanding, she took her time to evaluate my x-rays, explain and converse with me about my teeth. During my cleaning she was very attentive and took her time thoroughly with my teeth. If you’ve been to a dentist before you know that this often isn’t the case. After treatment i was given a run down of recommendations and a goodie bag of products! Lastly this place is very clear and informative they’re are no gimmicks when it comes to billing, finances and that i’m beyond satisfied with my visit to Lakewood Smiles, the doctors and staff truly are the best around

Theodore E. from Cerritos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I called initially and asked if they could accept my insurance provider, when they realized they could not they immediately offered me a chance for a free X-ray and consultation. They were so generous with their time and helpful in giving me an idea of my next best steps for treatment

Eva Marie J. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dental office!!!! Long story short I’ve been going to the same dentist for 20 years. And after seeing Dr. Williams 1 time, I am now a new patient. She is amazing!!!! I love how gentle, kind and delicate she is. I am so glad I found this office. My parents are thinking about coming for a visit also. I would definitely recommend this place!

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


I have been coming here for the last 6 years and it has always been an amazing experience. Let’s face it…no one likes going to the dentist, but the knowledgeable and friendly staff at Lakewood Smiles always makes the process as comfortable as possible. Dr. William and Dr. Girgis are both amazing at what they do. I have also been treated by the hygienist Candie and she is also amazing. Highly recommend coming here

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


I’m recently going through a situation where I have to switch dentists, and I was referred here by my future sister-in-law. I made my appt last week and she was able to see me today. From the moment I got there I was made to feel comfortable, and this is before anyone there knew who had referred me (long time friend of the dentist). The dental assistant was very easy going and friendly. I filled out all my paperwork, and when I realized I had not brought my toothbrush to clean up a bit beforehand, she gladly gave me a baggie of goodies with toothbrush, toothpaste and floss. I was so happy like a kid with her goodie bag, lol. I met Dr. William and she was warm and friendly from the get go. I went in for initial x-rays and exam/cleaning, but the cleaning will be done next appt because they took care of something I’d been wanting to take care of for over 2 years. Long story short, I got braces put on in TJ and I didn’t like the work they were doing. I discontinued going there and started going to a dentist in Bellflower. I hesitated on whether I wanted braces or not, but just recently asked them if they could remove my brackets (mind you, no wire or bands have been on them for 2+ years) and they told me I needed a release form from the dentist who put them on to “pass over orthodontic services” in a sense. But this wasn’t to continue orthodontic work, and they weren’t terminating any orthodontic work. I just wanted to remove brackets that were simply not doing ANYTHING! In my first appt with Dr. William, I was able to get what I wanted. I am so grateful to her for that. She is amazing and understanding. I’m so happy her office takes my insurance. I just wish my insurance would cover orthodontic work to consider their 6-month smile treatment. Anyway, if you’re looking for a dentist in the area, look no further! Tell them Cindy Ruiz referred you

I was overdue for a dental checkup and cleaning. I happened to see an advertisement for Lakewood Smiles in the Lakewood Community News publication that Lakewood and some Long Beach residents receive about once a month. Once I discovered how close this dental office was to my home (within walking distance), I immediately booked an appointment for the following week. This dental office is located on the fourth floor of the medical/professional building on Clark Avenue next door to the post office. Upon entering the office, I was greeted warmly by the lady sitting at the front desk, who asked me to fill out a couple pages of paperwork since I was a new patient. The doctor was still attending to another patient, so I waited for a short while before I was seen by the dental assistant to get my x-rays taken. The assistant was nice enough to raise the dental chair so that I could see outside the window and get a commanding view of Lakewood Center and Restaurant Row. 😀 Once all my x-rays were taken, I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Nancy William, who has a very friendly and calming chairside manner. Dr. William took the time to show me the results of my x-rays and I’m happy to report that my teeth and all the supporting bones and gums are still in very good shape! 🙂 All I needed was a thorough cleaning, which she proceeded to do. Once I was all done, the assistant scheduled me for my next cleaning in six months, which would make it the first week of May, 2013. Overall, I was quite impressed with Dr. William and her staff at Lakewood Smiles. The office is very well run and organized and everyone there is very warm, friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend this facility for anyone looking for a new dentist

Hello. I’m trying to understand what happened my appointment was changed to 9am this morning I was at your office from 850am until 1037 am . And now you are texting me saying I have an appointment for tomorrow the 7th at 9am that’s unacceptable and very unprofessional. 2 Tuesday’s In a row with no explanation as to why

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


I was pretty nervous about going to the dentist after having gone YEARS without a checkup but Dr. Williams, along with the rest of the staff, made it as pleasant as an experience at the dentist can be 😀 They work with you & make you feel not only comfortable but like an actual person, not just a patient. As a matter of fact, my mom, brother, and sister go to Lakewood Smiles too! I first went in a little over a month ago and major issues (deep cleaning & wisdom teeth extraction) have already been taken care of! I feel the best about my teeth that I have in years. Oh! And you wanna know one of the BEST parts. You’re not sitting in the waiting room for an hour! I don’t even have time to pick up a magazine most of the time. So, if you’re the type of person who doesn’t love going to the dentist I’d definitely recommend Dr. Williams. She makes visits to the dentist a lot more comfortable than I would ever have imagined they could be

T V. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Followed the reviews to Lakewood Smiles dentistry. I have always had a fear of dentists because of the pain and prior bad dentistry. However here I was relaxed, anxiety free, and well taken care of. They explain everything very thoroughly and continuously ask how the patient is doing. All the staff is incredible and professional. No more fear of the dentist for me, thank you Lakewood Smiles!
