BEST DENTIST EVER!!!!!!!! We came here because we were in a Pickle my boyfriend broke his front tooth and we needed a Dentist ASAP we called there after hours line and the Doctor called right back he said he would get us right in he took us right in 30, mins later my boyfriend was in the chair and numbed the office manager came in as well to look up all my boyfriends insurance info online went over all the fees with us and wahlah a hour and  a half later he had a new tooth lol…. The temp tooth they put on looked as good as the permanent veneer did and the best thing ever is it looked so natural and real plus i dont have to look at a man with a broken tooth. They did such a good job I now am a patient of Doctor Kline and had my Veneers done and couldn’t be more pleased with the Doctor and the friendly staff they make you feel right home. I would definitely refer my family and friends here. Thanks Doctor K

My first visit and it made me glad I gave them a try. From the taking of the x-rays, the exam and cleaning to the crown prep work, all involved from Dr. Kline, to Juliana, Mary, Cookie, and Crystal, it was a pleasurable and personable experience. I highly recommend them and as someone who has been visiting dental offices for decades that is saying something.

Dr. Kline and his entire staff are the BEST!! They are warming, caring, professional, and personable, listening to you explain your needs, and providing knowledgeable solutions.

Hate going to the dentist?  Manhattan Beach Dental Center will make that a thing of the past!  Lovely staff, caring professionals, tender empathetic care (with even a touch of inhaled anesthesia if you need it!)  They take all kinds of insurance, with good advice about that.  Very fair prices.  You’ll be glad you did, and even look forward to good check-ups!

I’ve gone here for the last 10 or so years and never had an issue. Wait time is always minimal, staff is always kind, and the dentists are great. Would recommend it for anyone looking for a dentist in the South Bay.

Lola S. from Chula Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend this dental office.  The staff is always very friendly and are very good at following up with you.  A friend of mine recommended this dental office.  I have been going here for almost a year and feel very comfortable and know I’m in good hands.

Dr Kline is all about patient comfort. We all know that going to the dentist can be an unpleasant experience. Dr. Kline has the empathy to realize that and the compassion to do something about it. The attitude of Dr. Kline and his staff is always relaxed, calm and positive. Dr. Kline is a human being…and he treats his patients and staff as fellow human beings. He’s earned 5 stars.

Dr. Kline is the best dentist I’ve ever had. He and his team assure your comfort during sometimes unpleasant experiences. He prices procedures in an affordable and reasonable way. Whether he likes it or not, he’s got me until he retires!

Sabina was fantastic! Great laugh and fun conversation and as always it is great to see Dr. Klien! I’ve been going to Manhattan Beach Dental since 90s they do great work!

I have my teeth cleaned and inspected 3-4 times per year by a dental hygienist, and my teeth X-rayed and inspected once a year by the dentist. This level of attention is necessary as gums recede at my age. I highly recommend Manhattan Beach Dental Center for the quality of service that I have received from Dr. James Kline and his staff for over 30 years. In addition to the periodic care, occasionally, a tooth will need to be pulled and bridged, or a tooth capped. These dental operations were performed painlessly with accuracy and have provided years of good service.

There aren’t many times when you can say that your dentist is a singing dentist. Dr. Klein sings in a barbershop quartet, if I’m not mistaken, and you can definitely hear it in his voice. He’s a kind and gentle dentist, straight to the point, and eager to get your pearly whites looking and feeling the best they can be. I actually drive 18+ miles out of my way from home and work to see this dentist. I’ve been going to his practice for a little over a year now, through times with and without insurance, and haven’t been displeased yet. They have flexible payment terms if your insurance doesn’t cover certain items. I absolutely love that I’m not lectured about my teeth. I know I don’t floss, at least I told you about it. He treats adults like, well, adults. I usually visit him about four times a year for my check-ups and cleanings due to personal details that I’d rather not get into, and have always found it quite refreshing that the staff knows me not just by name, but also remembers details about my personal life that I’ve told them. They asked about the cruise my mother and I went on, they ask about work, we joke about things. It’s very personable and a welcome change from the austere black-and-white world of HMO type facilities. I always have fun with my dental visits. The hygenists are great sources of advice for keeping your teeth cleaned. I knew that I was brushing wrong because well, who does pay attention to that? But, I didn’t know just how wrong it was until I was put on the spot and told to brush for my hygenist. Wow, eye opening experience. She helped correct my brush placement, and it did drastically improve my teeth for the next visit. The prescribed rinse and brush technique clinique improved my teeth and gums in just three months. Appointments are flexible. The office is very organized, clean and neat. The staff is always happy and upbeat. And your main Dentist sings. How can you possibly beat that? Parking is in the rear. I found it best to turn off of Sepulveda and take Oak to their parking lot. Much less crowded and easier to maneuver than Sepulveda.

Best experience at a dentist I’ve had for a long time!  I had an emergency, chipped tooth…and leaving for a two week vacation tomorrow.  I have never been to his office before, but he was the one who greeted me warmly when I walked in at 5pm.  I was in and out of the office in one hour. It seemed as though I had known doctor Klein and his staff for years.  Super friendly, efficient and professional.  Dr. Klein is a skilled dentist.  I got lucky, as I knew nothing about his office coming in!  Excellent!!!  I highly recommend!

Dr Kline and his staff are excellent. They are friendly and professional. The hygienists are very patient and gentle. Dr Kline is detailed, ethical and very efficient. I’ve been a patient for over 20 years and highly recommend this dental office. He’s the best around!

I love working at Manhattan Beach Dental Center since 1982! Meeting new patients and catching up with long time patients is what makes coming to work so enjoyable. Our large office is very comfortable and all the staff members are friendly and sensitive to your needs. Dr. Kline provides excellent dentistry with great care and attention to detail. He is a fantastic employer too, continually supporting our personal and professional growth, lifting us up when we need it, and always being more than fair and very generous.

I have been a patient of Dr. Kline since 1986. The overall service at Manhattan Beach Dental Center has been so outstanding that even after moving 350 miles away several years ago, I continue to be a patient there. Doug Gamble – Carmel, CA

Warm and friendly environment yet very professional! Dr. Kline is honest, very skilled, and takes a patient first attitude (no sales pitches). The hygienists and staff are top quality–I’ve been going here for almost 10 years.


My name is Dr. James M. Kline DDS, and it has been my pleasure to serve the South Bay for 38 years in the same location at Manhattan Beach Dental Center. A California native, I received my pre-dental education at Pasadena Nazarene College. At the age of 21, I started Dental School at the University of Southern California where I was graduated in 1973. As a result of their excellent training, I am very comfortable performing more involved procedures like Root Canal Therapy and Oral Surgery such as Wisdom Tooth Extractions. Continuous training allows me to provide Cosmetic and Restorative Dentistry. For your convenience, I have a Dental Laboratory on the premises. This allows me to work closely with the Dental Technician to fabricate the most functional and esthetic Partials and Dentures. I am also able to accommodate emergency Denture Repairs on the spot. As your General Dentist, I care about your dental conditions as it relates to your overall health and well being. Your comfort during dental procedures is my highest concern. I work at your pace and offer free Nitrous Oxide Gas. I remain committed to giving you a healthy and attractive smile with honest and conservative treatment while developing a long term relationship. My hobbies include traveling, fishing, Texas Hold’em, Swimming, and Singing. My passion is Barbershop Quartet Singing which I started at age twelve. It has allowed me to perform in concerts around the world for 40 years. Ultimately my Quartet won the coveted International Barbershop Quartet Championship in 2004. I have two children, both married, and a beautiful baby granddaughter. I have been blessed to serve this community and look forward to doing so for many years to come. I enjoy coming to the office everyday and I’m encouraged the company of my wonderful staff and patients. I look forward to meeting you. At our office, we have a relaxed atmosphere. There’s a open reception area that allows me meet, greet and answer any questions that our clients may have. We have a great play area for kids and many of our adult patients have a great time in our waiting room. On any given day, a spontaneous “party” can happen in the front area while serious dentistry is getting performed. We take pride in getting to know our patients and making them feel comfortable, like family, and not just an anonymous face off the street. This is what sets us apart from any other practice in the area. Sounds fun? Give us a call today!
