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

Lybroan J. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Burnett has been my dentist for the past 3 years. He has provided excellent service, and more importantly, he has created a great relationship with me (and all the other patients I’ve seen in the office). Like most people, I get apprehensive about visiting the dentist, but I always look forward to seeing Dr Burnett and his staff and it feels like family when I arrive. In addition, Dr Burnett uses the latest dental technology to increase patient understanding, allowing us to see more about our teeth and importance of hygiene. I highly recommend Dr Burnett and his team.

First time patient. I should start by saying that I HATE going to the dentist. This experiance has changed that for me. From the very beginning, the entire staff was courteous and professional. The dentist was very personable and explained everything in detail. The dental assistant got my X-Rays done quickly and with minimal discomfort. The office manager, whom I had spoken to on the phone to set up my appointment, remembered me. Honestly, the entire team made me feel like more than a patient. Highly recommend.

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


Today was my first time going to Dr. Burnett and his staff.  I really dislike going to dentist especially because they always shame you on your teeth. This was the first time I ever felt comfortable talking about my teeth and not once felt judged or shamed. The entire office staff were helpful, friendly, and kind. Dr. Burnett explained everything out and set a plan to continue building back the health of my teeth, which no other dentist has ever done. I truly recommend Dr. Burnett and his staff.

Jessica L. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Burnett is a wonderful person who really explains what is going on in a simple manner. He does such a great job with walking through the process and plan while talking to me about my needs and intentions. The staff has such warmth and phenomenal customer service and follow up. The staff and Dr. Burnett hold me accountable for reaching out and has provided such great expectation setting. I am so excited to get my health in order and encourage everyone to come here! I was referred by my colleagues to meet with Los Angeles Dental Arts. They have exceeded my expectations!

Casey C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went in to Los Angeles Dental Arts to see Dr. Burnett with high expectations and understandable reservations. I asked myself “who really wants to go see the dentist?” and if you are like many you go see the dentist when you have an issue.  Dr. Burnett and team took high tech x-rays, explained my situation, consulted with me on a plan and went about solving it. I came in with two old and cracked fillings and left with two new fillings made in their office with something I can describe as nothing other than dental wizardry.  I also had gum issues we devised a plan to correct. Stay tuned for more details post next session. That being said, if you want/need dental assistance I give Dr. Burnett and Los Angeles Dental Arts 5 Stars, go see them you will be happy with your care.

Ethan P. from West Adams, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had a wonderful dental experience at Dr Burnett’s office. I know, its somewhat an oxymoron to have wonderful and dental in the same sentence! However, my expectations were eclipsed so I felt compelled to share. I had decay of a tooth that required an onlay procedure. Dr Burnett’s office now offers a CEREC machine. CEREC is the unique CAD/CAM system for all-ceramic restorations in one single appointment. Dr Burnett was very informative, showing me the scan of my mouth he created through the computer, then walking me over to the CEREC machine and letting me watch as the machine formed my onlay (CEREC machine created my tooth filling in less than 11 minutes). One visit and procedure completed; in and out the chair in less than 1.5 hours. Previously, a similar procedure would have taken two visits. One visit was important to me because I didn’t have to take off of work two times. Only about 10% of Dentist offer CEREC technology in their offices. If you’re interested in the one-visit procedure, I would definitely recommend contacting Dr. Burnett’s office. The staff is extremely friendly and helpful and can answer any questions you may have.

I visited Dr. Ted Burnett at the Los Angeles Dental Arts office in Inglewood, California for a second opinion on a fractured tooth.  He gave me a detailed analysis of my situation and a recommendation for treatment. Dr. Burnett is kind and very knowledgeable and I was very relieved by our conversation and impressed.  So impressed, that I changed dentists immediately!  This is a great office with state of the art equipment and great service.

Antoinette L. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate to admit I had not been to the dentist in years. I always had bad experiences prior to this dental office.  I must say visiting this office was great.  The whole staff put me at ease. Obviously I needed a lot of work and they were awesome.  I had work done from the deep deep cleaning, to having 2 teeth pulled, having a root canal done and yes a new partial.  I was there every Thursday faithfully for about 5-6 weeks and I actually began to look forward to my visits. All I can say is I have a dental office for life now. I will continue to get my regular check-ups and teeth cleaning. I can’t say enough about this Dental Office from the moment you walk through the door. What a great team!!

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


I went online searching for a new dentist. I came across Doctor Burnett in Westchester and as soon as I got to the office. I knew I had made the right choice. His staff was courteous  and professional. And for the first time in any visit, I filled out forms electronically! Doctor Burnett was very cognizant of my needs and explained the entire process step by step. I felt very well taken care of. I plan on making him my permanent dentist and will highly recommend his office to others.

I am very pleased by the service I receive at this location. The staff is friendly and attentive. Dr. Burnett is skilled and patient. I would recommend this dental office to everyone.. Recently I agreed to have dental implants installed. I was very skeptical about the entire process. I was reassured that it was much easier than the horror stories I may have heard. I still had my doubts. Prosthodontist Dr. Peabody was scheduled to install the implants. He is very calm, soothing and reassuring about his work and process for the implant procedure. The anesthesia was implemented and the work began. I followed the directions for post surgery. I had no problems with the recovery. I didn’t miss anytime from work. I did not miss anytime from life. I continued the next day just like I never went to the dentist the day before. I have another implant to install. If it wasn’t for finances, I would have it done right now! I would recommend to anyone to have this procedure done at this dental office Dr. Theodore Burnett requesting Dr. Peabody for the implant procedure. By the way, his nickname is San Diego.

Ines V. from Westchester, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Burnett is the best, I  love him dearly. He is professional, funny and an amazing human being. He takes time to listen to your concerns and he explains everything with loving care! He is great with children too. Being a father himself, he has so much patience and knows exactly what to tell them so they feel comfortable. When I go to his office I feel welcome by everyone there. Everyone treats you with so much love and respect that is really a pleasure to go.

David S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I want to say my experience here was AMAZING, top of the line customer service hands down. Starting from the front of the office to the back treatment areas and even on your way out. Everyone is greeted from the time they make eye contact. They take time to genuinely get to know you, the energy here is great and healthy. I have already recommended extend family to go. Thank you Dr. Burnett, it all started with your phone call in welcoming me to your practice, your professionalism is OUTSTANDING. Keep it going my brother much respect.

Dr. Burnett and his staff have exceeded my expectations. The staff are so kind and make sure I am held accountable for coming in and following through with the appointment. Dr. Burnett is a wonderful person who makes everything simple and wants to uncover what needs and intentions are and collaborating to make a plan of action. I encourage everyone to come see his office and be a part of the LA Dental Arts family!

T. L. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Burnett and has team have taken excellent care of our family’s dental needs since 2011. The office staff is kind. Roman the hygienist is patient, gentle, and kept my deep cleaning as close to pain-free as possible. I felt not one Novocain shot administered. The music is also pretty cool.

Willa S. from Iron Mountain, MI (Source: Yelp)


All of the employees were incredibly kind and patient people. I really enjoyed meeting Dr. Burnett. I received thorough treatment with a lot of useful explanations and letting me know what’s happening with my teeth. I will absolutely be back.

Wayne H. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Burnett and his entire staff provided exceptional service. The office is well appointed and comfortable. There was no wait time, and the greeting was perfectly hospitable. Once in the treatment gallery, there was a tremendous experience provided by the state of the art equipment. Dr. Burnett took time to explain the X-ray images, courses of treatment, and a review of my dental history based on his examination. As a teacher and leader in dental science,Dr. B. Presents information clearly and thoroughly. He does so with consideration of the human element, patient comfort and cost. I will definitely be back!! Thank you.

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


Definitely had a great experience at my first visit to Dr. Burnett. The office staff was very professional and friendly. The receptionist was very welcoming and Cynthia who handles the billing is a sweetheart! The office space is very clean and comfortable. Dr. Burnett or Dr. B as referred to by the staff, was very informative and professional. He is willing to work with you depending on your insurance or financial status, which is awesome because I don’t have dental insurance so the costs can be very steep. Dr. B. had me in and out in no time. I would highly recommend scheduling an appointment and trying him out!

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


I have been seeing Dr. Burnett for my entire life and not only has his work always been flawless, but he is also the friendliest, most comforting dentist you will ever meet. No matter what the problem is, he always immediately knows how to solve it and he is so cheery and hilarious while he does. Its honestly fun to go to the dentist because he and all of his assistants are so engaging and helpful. I would recommend him to anyone!

Dr Burnett is a gem. I’ve been seeing him since the early 2000s and I continue to be impressed by his work. His staff is amazing. The office is lovely and Dr Burnett’s chair-side manner is brilliant. He caters to fearful patients. I often joke that I both love him and I hate him…but only because I hate needles. I’ve only been appreciative even when it wasn’t good news. Dr Burnett is honest and a joy to be around. I’m really going to miss him when I move away. I wish him and his entire staff nothing but the best things. All happiness and success into the future. Until we meet again.

I had a great experience at LA Dental Arts. Dr. Barnett and the wonderful staff there really let you know that each patient is special to them and will do what they can to give you the best experience possible. The work they do is gentle yet thorough and they have use state of the art technology that allows them to do almost any procedure in house. I was so impressed that they had equipment to make my porcelain inlay right there in house, so instead of 2 or 3 visits I got all the work done in one. I will say some of the technology makes for a little more expense, but it is so worth it! Not to mention it’s a Black Owned Business!!! It made me so proud to see an office full of People of Color!!! If you’re looking for a great dentist, please go see Dr. Barnett, you won’t be disappointed!

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


Dr. Burnett has been my Dentist since I’ve moved to LA. in 2012. I asked a friend in church where to go for quality dental care; her teeth were beautiful. She proudly referred me to Dr. Burnett. The care that my family received was professional, consistently excellent, with state of the art technology and technique. Treatment options are carefully explained and promptly completed. The staff is well trained and eager to help. Dr.Burnett is knowledgeable, caring and personally involved with each patient. Even patients who are hard to please will appreciate Los Angeles Dental Arts. – Rev. R. Hansome.

Emma W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like a lot of people I get massive anxiety when going to the dentist and it has taken me 5 years to find a great dentist in LA. Dr Burnett and his team are just incredible. They are so professional and do a really great job but more than that they are fantastic people, charming and funny which really helps to put your anxiety at ease. I feel like I’ve won the dentist lottery having found this team, so much so that I actually look forward to going now!

Sevag D. from San Fernando Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


After trying multiple dentists over the past several years, I finally found the best one. I have plenty of problems with my teeth, so I am constantly in and out of dentists so I have a good basis of comparison for dental offices. Dr Burnett and Dr Kotchounian are the best! They are very friendly and funny people who make a visit to the dentist office as non-terrible as it can possibly be. The hygienist Katherine was also very helpful in explaining how to maintain clean teeth and very quick and gentle in the cleaning process. I learned a lot about my teeth and the difference in flossing with the picks or with the string. Their office is very nice and clean with lots of new high tech equipment and great views out the large windows from your dental chair. I had a couple fillings put in and a cleaning done, and it all went pain free and quick. I usually hate the needle, but I somehow barely minded it this time. I Highly recommend LA Dental Arts to anyone looking for a new or better dentist!

Dr. Burnett is a fantastic dentist and a very charismatic man. First, he makes you feel at home, very relaxed which is not normal in a dentist chair. He thoroughly explains each procedure, the time frame for completion, and the total amount you will be billed. After each treatment, he escorts you to the receptionist and gives you the next appointment date. We talk like we’re old friends, and that makes me feel very special. Other than my uncle in North Carolina, he is the best dentist I’ve ever had.

Mary Ann L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


DentalPhobes, Horray!  I found a great dentist for us.  Dr. Theodore Burnett and his well-trained staff are patient and understanding and will work with whatever problems you have.  It took me a few visits, but I was finally able to get through an entire procedure (including all that drilling!) without needing a break every minute.  Dr. Burnett does what it takes, including singing songs and telling funny stories,  Although I couldn’t laugh out loud during my last visit (not wth a drill in my mouth!), I was smiling broadly. If you’re looking for The Best, whether you have trouble sitting through dental work or you jusr want the best professional in the field, go see Dr. B .. . The Best . . . Dr. Burnett. Smiling Radiently, Mary Ann Link

Janaye G. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


First let me start off by saying I’m terrified of the dentist; so much so it’s near high anxiety levels of terror. It’s been about 6-8 months since my last visit. I went in for my exam and was greeted with a smile. There wasn’t a long wait and Rob explained to me everything he was going to do before he did and made me feel very comfortable. I didn’t have to go to another room for my X-rays which I thought was cool and the X-rays weren’t unbearable. I then saw Dr. Burnett who was very reassuring and also explained to me how my visit was going to go and that he’d talked to me at the end of my visit. The next person I saw was Roman and just like Dr B. and Rob, he explained to me what he was going to do and why he was going to do it. After he was done he gave me my options and Dr. Burnett went over everything at the end of my visit. What I liked most was them not dismissing me being scared of the dentist. They were not frustrated or annoyed that a grown person was scared. They made sure I understood what was going on, the treatment options and what they thought the best course of treatment was and why. And it was clean which is the most important! There was no dust on the window, no build up in the corners or dust on my chair and I looked! I would have left immediately lol. Needless to say I booked my treatment visit and have found a dentist office I can home. Even tho they won’t put me to sleep like I want them to do & Roman photobombed my picture (lol) everything else outweighed that. I’m definitely happy and had very very little anxiety by the time I left. If you’re looking for a home for your teeth I’d recommend Dr. B

Steven G. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Theodore Burnett and his staff at Los Angeles Dental Arts are an phenomenal bunch of dentists. I went in for a normal teeth cleaning but after Theodore Burnett’s recommendations, I received a deep teeth cleaning and laser treatment that had my teeth looking whiter and brighter than ever have. They are also always very kind and courteous, and I always feel that much better after every visit. Highly Recommended.

I found Doctor Burnett by searching Google. As a transplant to Los Angeles from Ohio finding quality and convenient medical care has been frustrating, challenging and disappointing…even with referrals. With indifferent expectations I booked an appointment online (just 3 days before) was confirmed and went in. Without getting into too many details and despite the amount of work I had ahead of me, the entire experience was caring, informative and professional living up to the amazing reviews I read online. The care team (Maria, Gabe, Cynthia, Roman and Doctor Burnett) were all warm and on point in their approach and service. The quality of expertise, tools and technology were none that I’d seen before and having the Doc walk through each component was to say the least, impressive. We even shared a number of laughs throughout the visit and I was able to watch the 3D creation of my new porcelain sealant in office, which took only 6 minutes (as opposed to multiple separate visits and lab time in between). If you’re looking for quality, advanced and premium dental care please check out Dr. Burnett and his team. It’s such a relief to have ‘stumbled’ upon such a gem. Ps. If you’re driving and plan on using the garage bring $6 for parking.

I’ve been going to Dr. Burnett since he was over on Santa Rosalia and near Stocker in a small office that he clearly outgrew.  I love Dr. Burnett and his team.  They are awesome.  Some how, some way, a bunch of people with great attitudes, personalities and knowledge of their craft came together and became the team they are.  Although, I hate going to the dentist, (who doesn’t) I really and truly enjoy the staff, from Dr. Burnett to his entire team.  Yeah, I might be drooling on my bib and slur when I talk while being treated, but I’m dying laughing while I’m there.  Thank you Dr. B and Staff.

Okay first off we would have never come across Dr.Burnett had my husband not broke his tooth recently and needed to see an emergency dentist ASAP out of normal working hours. So happy I found a service that was able to connect me with this office and got us an appointment way early in the morning the next day. Everyone here is great! Very professional, friendly and above all very CLEAR with setting expectations. Aside from the staff and the awesome Dr.Burnett, they have this crazy cool “witchcraft machine” that takes a porcelain cube the size of a sugar cube and can make you a new tooth that’s designed on the computer by the doctor right in the office. In less than 15 minutes! See! Witchcraft machine! For those who are familiar with replacing a tooth, you may remember having to bite down into a clay piece to make a molding of your mouth that has to be sent off for a week or two for them to design you a new tooth. The dentist takes 3D images inside your mouth and designs a new tooth or a missing piece and fits it right there in the office. The process took about 2.5 hours and you are done. You don’t need to come back to get fitted or readjust anything. Amazing! This office is great for working professionals who don’t have a lot of time. By the way, my husband had a flight to be on in the afternoon that day and Dr.Burnett promised to get him in and out and in time for him to get home and pack- and he did. The Mr is so impressed he had asked me to switch his dentist that he has now to Dr.Burnett. Smile!

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


I love when people in any industry are personable and care about you, not just the money they will get from the service they are providing. Dr. Burnett and all the staff are so friendly. They care about every patient that walks in the door. Everyone is so kind and professional. It makes going to the dentist sooo much better.

Summer S. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Believe me when I say I’d rather get hit by a bus than go to the dentist – any dentist. However, the friendly faces of the caring staff and professionalism I’ve grown accustomed to at this place make it a lot easier to come in to keep my grill up to par. The ladies at the front desk are always warm and welcoming to me and my young son. Cynthia in the back office is so sweet and comforting especially when I see my dental bills ;-). She’s willing to work with me and I appreciate that. Roman is an awesome dental hygienist. He’s professional and cool. He helped to ease my anxiety of getting a deep cleaning by talking me through the process. He also distracted me with the jams he had playing in the background. And last, but not least, Dr. Burnett – the BEST dentist I’ve ever had. He’s not only great because he uses the latest dental technology. He’s great because he makes you laugh and ALMOST forget what you’re really there for. I highly recommend Los Angeles Dental Arts to anyone looking for a dentist who sees you as more than just a set of teeth. At this place, they treat you like family.

My visit today was awesome from the time I stepped into the office, the receptionist greeted me with a warm welcome even when preparing to take care of the protion of my bill it was amazing that we were laughing as I paid (now who does that). Then here comes doctor “B”. My favorite dentist in the whole wide world. He is super, kind, well mannered, responsible and delightful as well as funny. He plays music for me because he no I am affraid (coward). Dr. “B” is kindhearted shows concern in my dental care.

First of all, leave your COVID-19 worries behind when you enter his office!! They are state of the art when it comes to protecting their patients and themselves. Friendly and kind, and Dr Burnett uses state of the art equipment. Understand, going to the dentist is not my idea of fun.When you need a crown replaced, it’s done in one trip! No temporary. No second trip to his office. This is my second one and no adjustment needed. Dr. Burnett takes time to explain everything he will be doing. For me that was so important as I am not a fan of dental work. I’m always going to be stressed when going to see him, but that’s my stuff…He is calm and caring as well as the entire staff!!

Gretchen A. from Gardena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Burnett is one of the best dentist in Los Angeles. He takes his time and explains everything that’s going on with your dental health and he is truly passionate about what he does. Along with Dr Burnett he also has great staff that make you feel welcome and very friendly. Dr Burnett also provides all your dental needs in a one stop shop so there’s no need to go anywhere else. I highly recommended you give Dr Burnett ‘s office a call today. You will be happy you did.
