Where do I begin, this review has been long overdue. I’m not much of a “poster” but need give credit when credit is due. It’s important to share great experiences, especially at a dental office. If you are like me and hate going to the dentist, LAX Dental will change that. I was delighted with the service I received from LAX Dental every single time. By far the BEST dentist’s I have ever been to. Dr. Vahedi and Dr. Sammy helped me in numerous occasion’s. I’ve got several root canals and cavities fixed. They also helped with a great consultation for invisalign. I finally have straight teeth now! And it didnt break the bank 🙂 The staff was really helpful and it always feels great walking into a new clean office that uses the latest high end technology. They worked with me on a payment plan and my insurance to cover the cost on all of my procedures. All of the Doctors really had a pleasant attitude and the the Dental Hygienist, David always does such a great job with his cleaning. He is knowledgeable and explains exactly what he is doing. Overall, if you are looking for a full service dentist and are in the Inglewood area, LAX dental is a great place to get that million dollar smile. I only wish I knew about them earlier, unfortunately in the past I have not had the most pleasant experiences with other dentist but these guys really made me feel comfortable and I walked out every feeling that they really cared and I was not talked advantage of. Again, if you are looking for an honest dentist that graduated from a top school you need to go to LAX dental for a consultation. The wait time was short and had plenty of parking.

Man I hate dentist because of the pain and the needle but this dentist office is amazing. They treat you respectful with good customer services they work around your hours and dates for appointments and the doctors are great. If you need extractions are filling or what ever, you won’t fill the horrible pain that comes with the procedure and their efficient.

My experience at LAX Dental was outstanding. I wish I could remember who referred me to this office. Dr. Vahedi and his staff went out of their way to make sure that  I received the treatment needed and that I experience no pain during the procedure . In addition to being attentive to me , they went out of their way to make my husband comfortable and assured him that I would be well taken care of. Customer service is vitally important in today’s market place. We have so many options when it comes to dental care. Besides the technical and medical knowledge that is needed to provide care, expressing human kindness, compassion , and respect will always produce loyal and happy clients!
Thank you LAX Dental! Alaiyo and Rodney Taylor

I honestly hate going to the Dentist, but I got my Invisalign taken care of here and I loved it. Dr. Vahedi is great and will work with their patients and their budgets. He is very easy to talk to. The staff and ALL of its Dental Assistants are super nice and welcoming. I have been a patient here for over a year now and everyone remembers my name and welcomes me once I walk in, it feels great. They always have a small talk with you that does not make you feel uncomfortable at all. When placed inside a room, the TV is turned on for you to watch whatever channel you desire. There is a lot of parking available. The place is nice and clean. A clean restroom available, also two TVs. Small rooms are available to talk about any financing. Only problem would be that sometimes you do have to wait a while to get called in or seen but after that things seem to go pretty smoothly. It would be a good idea to make an appointment in the morning or late, close to their closing hours. (If you can) Overall, it is a great Dentist and Orthodontics and I am more than satisfied with the work that has been done here.

I came down from Alaska and my tooth broke on the flight down. My very first day in LA and I didn’t know who to trust with my tooth. After a bad experience at Western Dental, I found LAX Dental. They saved my tooth and were very awesome to work with. Very professional and kind. They were very open on the price and the office staff was amazing. They made me a crown very quickly and it fit perfect. They have my business when I’m here in LA. Thank you.

My occurrence with the staff was great and loved the dentist but be prepared to wait! Even with appt. I love Dr. Vohedi and Dr. Sammi (or Sammy). I came to this dental office from a referral from my sister. She’s gotten a root canal here before and highly recommended it because of Dr. Sammi…so I went ahead and made an appt since I was having horrible pain because my nerve was exposed and had a bad cavity on another tooth. Chocolate…why must you hurt and satisfy me at the same time? Any who, I went in without insurance (I applied for the Care Credit card and was approved…try that if you can). Dr. Vohedi came in and helped me and I was hesitant as my sister recommended Dr. Sammi but Dr. Vohedi was direct and really nice. He started immediately on my root canal and spread it out with a few sessions because of my schedule. During the root canal, he and the assistant would always make sure I’m okay and talk to me to make sure I was comfortable and not completely bored.The staff in my opinion is really great. The dental assistants are sweet and always make you feel comfortable and make small talk that isn’t uncomfortable. The dentists are comforting and really cool. My only con about this place is probably the wait. They get really busy and walk to and from different rooms while trying to accommodate everyone. Some of my appointments didn’t have to last that long but did because of other people in the office. I would highly recommend this office but maybe clear your schedule for the day or make a super early appointment to get it out of the way.

This is a great dental office. The dentist & staff are very helpful, caring & cheerful. But above all of that, the work is done in a high quality manner. If you are on a budget this is the place for you. They’re pricing is very fare & they work with your income to base a payment plan that works for you. Quality work, nice people great dentist & affordable pricing…. What more could you ask for. Oh & they’re office is extremely nice & updated with recent technology based tools & instruments. Very soothing vibe with a sophisticated elegance.

Jessica H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this place! Staff is super friendly and really care about their patients’ needs. Dr. Sammy really took his time during my cleaning and made recommendations on how I could better take care of my teeth. He is a little forward and is strong to express his thoughts, but it’s only because he is so knowledgeable and has been doing this for many years! Dr. Vahedi is super friendly and attentive. He answered all of my questions and even took the time to show me how to floss properly. Thank goodness I had no cavities, but will be coming back again very soon for bleaching. Would highly recommend this place to anyone who is looking for a great team of people who know dentistry.

Nicie H. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to say this is the best dentistry I’ve ever been too. I have a major fear of getting work done. Due to my fear and no insurance, I didn’t have regular check ups for a few years. So now I have many problems. I came in to just get a filling because it had fallen out a few months ago and now I had  major pain, turns out my tooth was infected. After the xrays I was told I needed 2 to 3 root canals, 2 crowns and a deep cleaning and it would come out to a few thousands. I started freaking out and was crying before even getting into the exam room.  Dr. Vahedi was very compassionate and understanding and was able to calm me down. Plus he was gentle while working on me. The dentist assisting him was great as well. The staff was wonderful, nice, professional and got me in quick, they helped me with financing. My whole experience was wonderful, I definitely recommend this dentist office to everyone.

Sean G. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


Long story short: I have had three procedures done here. 2 of them, the owner worked on me and things went smoothly. 1 of those times I had an asian guy work on me and he was pretty rough, gave me light bruising because he had my jaw clasped open too long, too wide. Besides that roughness, I am confident in this place is the best I can do for the money I paid. I had an extraction of 2 wisdom teeth on separate occasions and another cavity filled on my last visit. I went to “regular” dentists and these fools were charging me 3 times as much money. One business in San Pedro wanted $800 for the extraction, I was not amused. I was going to have to go to Mexico to have this done, but thanks to this business I was spared. The office is beautiful, and seems pretty new. Most of the people that work here seem to speak broken english. This was worrisome for me at first, but realized after speaking to the owner that he was articulate, educated, and he was very proud of his business. This gave me confidence and was really happy I found a dentist that was willing to charge a low fee without insurance. I was going to give three stars at first because my jaw was sore for 2 days after the extraction. I realize I am using a discount service and I should expect it to be rough around the edges for paying 1/3 of what everyone else charges. Then I realized how happy I was to have my emergency taken care of, professional enough to keep me coming back for more. Note: To all the people rating this dentist low for not keeping a schedule… You get what you pay for. I have seen these guys in the back rooms being cautious and trying to hurry going between clients. I would not say they are understaffed, but they are very popular and unlike a “regular” dentist they will try to see the most people they can on any given day. The other dentists make too much money and have have so much time on their hands they can easily keep perfect

Prior to coming here to LAX Dental, my bottom gums were inflamed and bleeding every time I brushed my teeth. Dr. Vahedi, David, and Blanca were very compassionate and kept coming in to check to see if I was ok. They worked with me and approved me through care credit…..made it affordable. They all did a fantastic job and was recommended from Mia (friend’s wife) and would refer anyone else. Best Christmas gift ever!! Thank all of you for your professional service. ^_^ Wish you all a Happy New Year.

The staff and the treatment I received at LAX Dental on both a personal and professional level was beyond exceptional. The office and equipment are clean and you can really tell that the entire staff genuinely cares about the well being of their patients. I feel as though I’ve found found my “forever” dentist with them. I highly recommend LAX Dental, trust me you will not be disappointed.

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


Great experience with this dentistry. I had been looking for a dentistry that had its own dental hygienist when I contacted them they were able to accommodate me the same day to come in for the start of my cleaning. I also met with Dr. Vahedi the same day he thoroughly took the time to check all my teeth and give his honest opinion of things I need to get done and what the steps will take the achieve them. I have had the pleasant experience yet and the staff is very friendly and welcoming. Dr. Vahedi did an amazing job on my front tooth and what a difference! I am exceptionally happy and would recommend anyone else who is looking for a good dentist. Dr. Vahedi also takes pride in his work and ensures that you’re satisfied. 🙂

For a an extended period I was ashamed to date, or even take pictures. In short I was downcast and failed to see how a new smile could improve my social life. Sound corny, right? But, it all changed when I heard about LAX Dental clinic in Inglewood. Both Dr. Sammy and Dr. Vahedi went to work on my dramatic cosmetic makeover. The rest is history because now I have a new girlfriend that simply adores me. The cost was reasonable and the staff will readily provide financial options that are tailor made for your budget. Yes, I am a satisfied customer. Thanks again Dr. Sammy and Dr. Vahedi I’m going to invite you both to my wedding.

First I had to understand my dental hygiene, diet as well as other health factors plays a role in the health of my teeth/gums and the dentist is not to blame for my lack of check-ups. I could not have an attitude with the dentist so I prepare myself to be patient as a “patient” when visting the dentist.  I have been to serveral dentist in the past 20 years and realize how important having the same dentist preform my dental work in order to have teeth look uniform and aligned.  Dr. Vahedi has worked exceptionally well allowing me to prepare financially and crediting me for services needed to be completed at a later date when I was able . Some of the services done at LAX Dental by Dr. Vahedi are extractions, bone grafts, cosmetic and have upcoming appointments for cosmetic work.  I am confident in Dr. Vahedi and his staff but realize how important it is for me to do my part in the health/maintenace of my teeth. Blaming the dentist, complaining, having an attitude was all an excuse to blame someone else for my lack of dental care.   Also, Cindy and the entire office staff at LAX Dental are doing a great job assisting patients who come in pain with dental complaints and expect to be seen immediately.  I am not the only one who needs dental work and should not expect the staff to accomodate me for my attitude and laziness at maintaining healthy teeth/gums. My dental care is my responsiblity and since I call to make the appointment I should respect the staff who is there to assist me.

I’m very terrified of the dentist and I’ve been avoiding it for some time now and after very terrifying experience when I was young. I tried my best to avoid the dentist until I got a massive toothache last month. I was referred here by one of my friends that was super satisfied by the way she was treated and mentioned that I go see them. I called their office and I was given a same day appointment to have my tooth looked at. Since I didn’t have insurance they offered me a free dental X-ray and Examination.   Later that day I went in with my toothache and as soon as they saw me in terrible pain the Dr. Vahedi asked them to let me in the back right away to see what was going on. The staff was very sweet and caring, very gently the took a few X-rays from my mouth and Dr. Vahedi immediately walked in to see why I was in so much pain. After looking at my X-rays Dr. Vahedi let me know that I have a very large cavity that has reached the nerve and he needed to perform a Root Canal to relieve the pain. Since I was in pain he felt very bad and asked I needed some anesthesia so that I can pay better attention. With very gentle hands and caution he had me numb, I had no idea if he even gave me a shot. I was so surprised to have someone numb me like that. Anyways, I was given the cost for my treatment which was pretty fair, then I was taken to the treatment room to have my Root Canal started. I’ve had a root canal before but non like this. Dr. Vahedi was super sweet and nice, he worked gently and and make sure I was comfortable at all times. My molar root canal to about 45 min from beginning to end, and I didn’t feel a thing. They even upgraded the crown for my molar to “Metal Free” aka Zirconia without additional cost. I highly recommend Salud Dental to everyone, they are great. Thank you Dr. V for changing my mind about dentists. All and all , The office is clean and has state of the art equipment. The entire staff including  Dr. Vahedi  were very attentive and friendly. Dr Vahedi really cares for his patients ! I definitely recommend this place !!

AlKeesha B. from Victorville, CA (Source: Yelp)


I walked in lax dental with a broken  wisdom tooth in a lot of pain, at the time I didn’t know he is such a  good dentist but now I do.   Dr. Vahedi did a complete 3-d xray of my mouth and a chart  explaining what was needed to get my mouth healthy.  I want  to thank lax dental for their professional and  kind treatment, their friendly work  environment  and  for helping me to obtain a  payment plan to restore  my smile.  Also I want to thank all the Doctors  for doing great  work in the community  and most of all Dr. Vahedi for making me feel better  and for giving me my confidence back I truly appreciate you!

Samaria P. from Harbor City, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental facility is outstanding!!! From quality to affordable prices. I’m being going to them for over five years and they have always done an amazing job. I had two root canals,  deep cleanings, and invisaligns done at very good price. I’m also very happy because I receive so many nice compliments about my smile from everyone and everywhere I go. Dr. Vahedi is very good at what he does. If you are tired of going to dental offices where they make you wait for hours, dentists deliver poor dental work at a very high cost, or receive bad customer service, then don’t wait any more and go to this office. You will be glad you did.

John S. from Sarasota, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was traveling out of the country and had one day to get a root canal completed while staying at LAX.  I called the office early and they made me an appointment before hours and had my insurance completed when I arrived. The office is clean, professional, and they care about how long you wait and your comfort.  Their technology – digital xrays, equipment, etc. is all excellent.  Working in healthcare, I am familiar with the technology. I had a very thorough pulpectomy (root canal) – they knew I was traveling for three weeks and could not return until then.  I had the same procedure two weeks ago in Chicago and it was a sloppy 15 minute appointment that left me in pain for a week until it had to be repeated. This office really cared about getting it done right.  The dentist that treated me was obviously knowledgeable and quite capable.   They also submitted my insurance and even called me a cab.  Yes, they’re busy but I think that’s for a reason.  They are a really great office.

Sal G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Vahedi is very detailed and answers any questions you have. I am very happy that I decided to come here after being with another dentist for many years. I recommend coming here if you have any dental questions or concerns. Great staff who are kind and willing to help. Flor is very detailed on the insurance side of things and works to find the perfect plan for each patient. I highly recommend this place.

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


I came to LAX DENTAL on short notice and they happily took me in. Dr. Sammy khakshooy and Dr. Vahedi are both top, Proffessional dentists around. They give helpful advice. Their facility is nice and new and the staff were really kind. I explained to them that I felt weak because I hadn’t eaten much that day and they kindly offered me a protein bar and juice for the way back home. Highly recommended!!!!! I can tell you The drive from pico Robertson to lax is well worth it!

Jasmine A. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I truly recommend LAX dental! The staff is super friendly and don’t let me begin talking about Dr. Sammy and Dr. Vahedi. Previously I had gone to Tijuana to fix my teeth and that was a mistake! Luckily I found LAX dental. I have been a patient for three years and they are amazing! Don’t think twice about making an appointment!

B. A. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went back today and my child and myself had a way better visit. We didn’t wait long.The finance lady was nice and friendly.The first Dr. was very nice and made my child feel comfortable.The second Dr. & assistant also super nice.                    Years back my daughter had a very bad experience with a different Dental place (All Kids Dental Care)(in Hawthorne) they strap the kids down in close doors.That was the last time my daughter had work done. But today @ LAX Dental & Orthodontics they did good work and even tho my daughter was very nervous not knowing how it was going to go she left happy it went well and is comfortable going back. If my child is happy with the work done and had grate service I’m happy with that.

Maz V. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my 2 dental implants done at this office and they did an amazing job. I’m going on 2 years with my new implants. Unfortunately I have seen other dentist due to me living far away from this location, and the other dentist that did my check up even said that my dentist who did my implants did a wonderful job. That goes to tell you that the work is quality. I miss Dr. Vahedi and want to go back and have my check ups there again.
