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

Debbie C. from Frederick, MD (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I were on vacation in Hermosa Beach.  I was scheduled for a root canal when we got back the following week.   Unfortunately my tooth began hurting before that.  We called Dr Pahan’s office and he fit me in that afternoon.  The office staff was so nice and made me feel very comfortable.  Dr. Paqnh examined my tooth and showed me pictures of the tooth at every stage.  The tooth had an old mercury filling and it was cracked.  Dr. Panah removed the filling and examined the tooth to make sure the entire tooth wasn’t cracked down to the nerve.  He cleaned out the decay. There was a bad crack in the tooth and my decision was to either have it extracted or have it crowned.  Dr Panah convinced me to keep the tooth. He has this special procedure that when he numbed my gums I felt no pain, He prepared my tooth for temporary crown and told me to come back the next day to have permanent crown.  When I came in the next day he actually was able to make the crown in his office. He even let me watch the crown being made and showed me how it was glazed and fired in the kiln.  I was out of his office by noon and able to enjoy the rest of my day.  Normally to do a crown procedure would take 2-3 weeks, but Dr Panah did it in two days so I could make my plane trip home.  It was an excellent experience and I would recommend Dr Panah to all my friends.  He certainly keep his patients involved in every step of the procedure and make the patient feel very comfortable. His staff was really nice to work with. I will definitely return there to have any more dental work done.

Out of this world service and attention to details. We have been patients of Dr. Panah and Dr. Askari for years. Today my wife popped off an old metal crown while on vacation. We called them and they stayed on the phone with us until we purchased the temp adhesive and popped it back in. I have not seen this kind of service and care anywhere else. We were walked through the whole process from cleaning the crown to applying the adhesive and putting the crown back in. They even “face timed” with us to make sure things were right. All at no charge. Can not recommend better dentists or a more personable care.

Jessi A. from Manhattan Beach, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My entire experience with Dental Esthetics has been phenomenal. It all started with me wanting to improve the way my smile looked, so I called several places and even got a feel for other dentists. None of them earned my trust like the staff from Dental Esthetics and Dr. Panah have. Wendy I believed set me up with the earliest appointment possible to get into their office and I really don’t have any regrets. They send you text alerts or email alerts to remind you of your appointment.(pretty awesome) My appointment was right on time their was no wait time. Their office is really nice and it makes you feel welcomed and making a dentist appointment really comfortable. My routine check up with Dr.Panah wasn’t so routine. He went through my entire mouth and checked for other problems that might exist. Dr.Panah always explains every option possible and isn’t looking to getting into your wallet I feel he sincerely tells you what’s needed. We set up a plan for all the work that I wanted to get done. Currently I am 3/5 steps away from finishing everything that needs to get done and already my confidence in my smile has increased 100%. Thank you staff from Manhattan Beach Dental Esthetics and Dr. Panah for doing an amazing job for me and I will be referring to you guys as much as possible.

Celeste T. from West Jordan, UT (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Panah makes a dental visit easy and as comforting as it can be. I don’t know anyone that likes dental work and I am no different, but the care Dr. Panah gives is exceptional. The staff is amazing! Friendly, courteous and the ease of checking in and making light conversation makes a difference of what service is supposed to be like. Evelina suggested this office to me and my family and we have not been disappointed. One of my favorite things about this team is their yearly charity event that offers specific services for free to the public while the entire staff volunteers their time on their day off. Dental care isn’t cheap. Staffing for a dental office isn’t cheap. Dental equipment isn’t cheap. Dentists aren’t cheap. To have services provided at no cost to those that cannot afford these services is definitely a blessing.

Margie A. from Vallejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying that I am a dentist-phobe…Dr. Panah, and his team were above and beyond patient, kind, and treated me with the utmost of respect!  They answered all of my questions – which I had put off asking until almost the day before the appointment, made sure that I was 10,000% comfortable, and could feel absolutely nothing before they started the work, and through out the procedure, were both solicitous and encouraging! I so wish that I had found them 5 – 10 – 15 years ago!

I have been seeing Dr Panah for close to a year now and have nothing but great things to say. Most recently I had my remaining 3 wisdom teeth removed and it was an excellent experience. I had heard horror stories regarding wisdom teeth removal and experienced nothing like that. I had local anesthesia performed (numbing shots to my gums) so I was awake during the entire procedure. It took about 45 mins for the actual work and about 90 mins in total. Dr Panah prepared me on how to care for my gums during post operation and I have had zero issues. I would highly recommend Dr Panah for his work and dental recommendations. Thanks Dr Panah!

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


Dr. Panah is the best in the business!  I don’t live in the area but I will travel without hesitation to visit his office. My last major work was getting all 4 wisdom teeth extracted.  Dr. Panah recommended I get them all done at once so that I don’t have to deal with the anxiety and recovery on multiple visits.  But it was completely my choice.  I decided to do all four and was scared to death! I don’t like sedatives and had opted out of the “laughing gas”.  However, the day of the procedure, Dr. Panah had the gas on standby for me.  His staff was great, checking on me to make sure I was calm.  But I was so nervous that I opted for the gas and they were all extremely patient with me.  My fear was that the numbing medicine wouldn’t take and I would feel pain.  However, he made sure that it settled in and checked on me at least twice before starting the procedure.  Once he did the extractions, I couldn’t believe how quick and painless it was.  I ended up feeling silly about being so nervous. Dr. Panah is patient, explains everything thoroughly, and makes sure you are comfortable.  He also doesn’t rush through anything which is very important.  I really feel like a valued client and I appreciate him and his entire staff.  They are all very kind and professional.  And the office is beautiful!

Jason S. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family, wife and 2 kids, have been coming here for over 4 years and we could not be happier.  Dr Panah and his staff are amazing.  They are professional and friendly.  My wife and I have a lot of mercury fillings that are, over the years, being replaced by porcelain inlays and the treatment is done in one visit!!  All of his dental equipment is world class and even root canals are done in house and in one visit!! My kids age 10 and 12 are treated well and do not complain when they need a cleaning or a treatment.  I highly recommend dental esthetics if you are anywhere in the South Bay.

Lori S. from Corona del Mar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I purchased a cleaning via Living Social for another Manhattan Beach Dentist and although my x-rays were fine they suggested that I get my old fillings redone and a night guard – costing over $1500!!  Not having dental insurance I was just going to get one tooth redone because I currently don’t have that sort of cash just laying around.  Two days later I heard about Dental Esthetics doing a community program so I went, and I was soooo glad that I did because I found my new dentist! First off, for a dental office to give back to the community and help others in need is just heartwarming.  They helped over 120 people that day, me being one of them.  In talking with the dentist, they were very honest with me about what NEEDED to be done, what was preventative and what wasn’t even necessary.  Honest and Trustworthy. The procedure was super fast and basically painless…just a tiny pinch from the novocaine shot and that was it.  I wasn’t even sore later and my new filling is smooth and amazing!! On top of it, they said to schedule a time after the new year and since I came to this event they would work with me so that I could afford to have the other services done.  I mean REALLY??  I was so touched that I started to cry.  Even thanking people when I left I had to work to hold back the tears. I am so grateful that such gracious and talented men and women are in business and hope that their business thrives!!  AMAZING dentist, wonderful staff, and my new dental home!

Rod A. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t believe how much time I spent going to other dentists. Dr. Panah is always so calm and collected, and really treats you like a friend or family member rather than a client. I can’t begin to thank him for all he’s done for me. Especially the last time I visited him, he noted an abrasion in my mouth that I had told him was a recurring thing from my childhood. As every other dentist in the past had brushed this off, Dr. Panah persisted, he insisted I go to an oral surgeon that he referred me to, and it turned out that this minor issue I’ve had since childhood, which I thought was totally harmless, could be a bigger deal than I thought. I am still in the process and the details would probably bore most people, but I just have to thank Dr. Panah for his persistence and care in pushing me to take care of this, as it is something that could have developed far worse, without proper attention. Thank you Dr. Panah!

This office was beautiful and immaculate. Not only that, but everybody at Dr. Panah’s office was so nice and friendly! From Daisy, in reception, to Jessica, who did my x-rays, to Dr. Panah herself. I felt well-informed about everything that happened in my appointment, as well as being very well-taken care of. Definitely highly recommend!

Henry K. from Yorba Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live in Orange County but decided to drive all the way to Manhattan Beach to see Dr. Panah.  My friends kept telling me I should see this dentist in Manhattan Beach whenever I would complain to them about what a horrible job my previous dentist did on my crown.  I was immediately impressed when I walked through the front door.  Nice décor, state of the art equipment, and a very friendly staff  Dr. Panah explained to me in detail what the best course of action was.  He gave me some options, but he steered me to go with the most cost effective method based on my dental history.  He is very honest and trustworthy, he was able to save my tooth.  Now it’s as good as new and it didn’t break the bank.   Dr. Panah is hands down the best dentist I’ve seen.  The only negative experience here was the long drive back home in traffic.  Despite the distance I will now make Dr. Panah my permanent dentist.

Nini T. from Falls Church, VA (Source: Yelp)


I purchased a teeth cleaning on Groupon and very happy that I did. I was being honest with them that I am not from California and that I am flying back to Virginia soon and will not be able to use this Groupon before it expired, the receptionist was very sweet to squeeze me the following week. *The receptionists are all very sweet and nice. *The doctor appear to be caring and knowledgeable. *My oral hygienic is very sweet and nice also but her cleaning skill wasn’t too superior. If she can be a bit more detail in cleaning and actually giving me a cup of mouth wash for me to rinse instead of saying we are done and said I can go check out with a lot of yucky stuff in my mouth ^_^ would be great. I end up having to ask her and she said I can do that in the restroom if I like. I think she is new to this but her customer service is great. Bottom Line: I definitely would come back here again as I do travel here a lot and planning on moving to the area anyway. I would recommend this place / this location to my family and friends in the area.

Nan F. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best Dentistry in California, Dr. Panah and his staff make you feel like family. I had horrible stories and was scared to death of the dentist and the pain I would feel. My teeth were in really bad shape, he listened to me and my fears my first visit, by the time my follow-up happened we had already started establishing Trust between myself and his whole staff. I would recommend anyone to come any of his offices. The moment you walk in you feel comfortable with his staff. The are all just great people and truly care about you. Don’t miss out If you feel a little something or it’s time for your cleaning pick up the phone you won’t regret it.

Shawn R. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I came in with a referral for Dr. Panah from a friend and she’s right in saying he’s probably the best dentist in the South Bay. I was supposed to have an extraction but thankfully Panah’s trying to save them and ran more tests. Fingers crossed it’s referred pain. During the procedure, he made sure the anesthetic was working before proceeding with plenty of time for it to do its thing. There’s a lot of tech in the office too. The isoline thing is like this snorkel that keeps your mouth open and tongue away while providing suction. And they have this camera thing to show you what they’re working on. Panah uses it to explain each step of the procedure before he does it. Very, very cool. (They also have an automated ceramic milling machine for faster crowns!) The only issue you might have is the price. My previous root canal and crown cost around 2.5k; a cheaper place costs about 2k. This place is going to set me back about 4k. But I think it’s money well spent. Office people were nice. The techs and assistants were superb and friendly too. If you want your teeth properly done, this is the place to be.

Andrew M. (Source: Zocdoc)


Had no clue what zoc doc was and this was my first time finding a dentist through it. I was pleasantly surprised as they were super friendly and professional, go check them out if you have any doubts. Keep in mind though my wait time was great but may have been do to me visiting an hour before close, so nobody else was really there.

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


Every single staff member in this office was absolutely wonderful! Daisy at the front desk is knowledgeable and sweet.  Dr. Bita Binesh was kind, caring & compassionate and the techs were all thoughtful & gentle. I am so very grateful to have found Redondo Beach Dental Arts. Even the office itself it wonderful; it is beautifully designed and immaculate!  It takes a lot for me to actually write a review let alone make a recommendation but these guys have absolutely earned it. I can’t say enough wonderful things about them. So if you need dental work done Redondo Beach Dental Arts is the only place you should go.

Julie S. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Dr. Panah for the last 11 years and he has always provided me with the best dental care. He has kept my smile looking great over the years. I came in today for an implant and he extracted my tooth quick and effortlessly. I had never liked the dentist like most people but Dr. Panah’s care and staff’s friendliness made me look forward to seeing the dentist. They treat their patients like family which is what put my mind to ease. He has done 4 dental Implants for me so far and each one have gone very smoothly unlike the previous dentist I had done an implant with. Thank you Dr. P for the great care over the years and look forward to many more!

Jeremy Akers (Source: Google)


Dr. Panah is simply the best. You will be hard pressed to find anyone else with his amazing technical skills. However, even more impressive is the fact that I always feel like he genuinely cares. That word encompasses so much and it is hard to describe how at ease he and his excellent staff make you feel when you arrive and then all the way through whatever it is you have to get done. I highly recommend Dr. Panah and MB Dental Esthetics!

Chris Maloney (Source: Google)


Dr. Panah is the best dentist I have been to. He treats you like a person that deserves to know the details of your case. He will explain the Anatomy and Physiology behind the pain for which you seek treatment. He is a Clinical Proffessor at USC which is why I decided to go to him when my insurance changed. He has a very clean office with the most up to date equipment including 3D printers to make tooth caps. Daisy at the front desk is a true proffessional at her craft. She is very transparent and informative with billing, and remembers who I am. There are helpful text message reminders for appointments. Daisy is quite organized and flexible with scheduling. The staff of dental aesthetics are also very proffessional and seem to be in step with Dr. Panah, anticipating his next move. Thank you for the great care that I received over the course of the last year with a teeth cleaning, cavity, and root canal. Chris.

The staff is amazing. Dr. Panah is the best dentist I have ever had. I have major anxiety when it comes to the dentist and they go out of their way to make me feel comfortable. The office is top notch and very clean w. a modern twist. They have all of the new machines in house to make it a one stop shop. I don’t normally review online but my appointments have made me feel like a part of the family. I highly recommend this dentist office. 5 star for sure

R. E. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


MAGNIFICENT…I was a worst case scenario. 5 cracked teeth, thanks to silver fillings,. Crooked worn down teeth. Extreme , and I mean EXTREME pain with dental procedures, bad crowns etc.., horribly gone wrong root canals, leading to a life time ( I am 45 ) of what I thought was just torture, (even with former dentists I liked ) until I found Dr Panah and his incredible team in 2009. My  former dentist  even sent me flowers because she felt so sorry for me because I was in so much pain! When I went to Dr Panah , the first time,  I was shaking so hard they could tell I had some serious bad anxiety and real pain…Then ,one by one,  he transformed my teeth, my smile and my relationship with my teeth and dentistry. I feel like going to the dentist is  a happy and exciting event now -and my anxiety is gone. No more valium to sit in the dentist chair. Go ahead. Ask him. These wonderful people have really changed my life, they are all super supportive , I am almost done with invisalign and every day I am thankful I found Dr Panah! Seriously I even had a molor that was almost not able to be rescued. I considered just having it pulled. He saved it. I am still shocked that my anxiety is gone and the pain is gone and my teeth are almost straightened. You can not put a price on this. He  really is the best Birdie E.

Susan J. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had multiple procedures done including extractions, implants, root canals and cosmetic crowns. Dr. Panah is so knowledgeable, kind and gentle. I have been to multiple dentists that did not know what they were doing and he was able to correct their mistakes. I highly highly recommend him!!! I now have a beautiful smile and it was an *almost* painless procedure. He is THE BEST around ( including the famous Beverly Hills DR’s). PS The rest of the staff are wonderful as well!

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


It’s hard to trust a dentist, especially when you are new to a City or State and haven’t had any great recommendations. I randomly choose Dr. Panah’s practice because of its location and figured I would take a chance. It’s a decision that I will never regret. I’ve had multiple treatments there from a root canal with a crown on my front tooth to ceramic onlays. No one can even tell my tooth had work done on it. Dr. Panah does exceptional work and his staff is extremely friendly. Honest and upfront with what good work will cost, but it’s totally worth it. Going to the dentist isn’t a nightmare anymore!

Leitina S. from Salt Lake City, UT (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin!! Dr. Panah and his staff are amazing! So friendly sweet and patient. I went to a Charity Event that they have every December, Its their annual Christmas event. Everyone in their office volunteers a day to give back to the community and offer free dental work. FREE!!! And I love FREE! Everyone loves FREE!  It’s a free cleaning, filling or extraction. Dental work can be very expensive, but with this annual event that they have every year, I just had to take advantage.  One of the things that I look for when visiting an office, is their staff. Let me just say that his assistant, Evelina, omg she is the She didn’t treat me like a patient, but more like family. She was very patient and had a big smile when I walked through those doors. She made me feel at ease, I haven’t been to the Dentist in years! So this was my first visit in a looong time.  But, my visit was more than I could ask for. Dr Panah is amazing! He really takes pride in what he does and absolutely loves dentistry. He really cares about his patients. He communicates with me every step of the way to let me know what’s going on.  Definitely one of the best experiences I’ve had with a dentist. They are all wonderful and I couldn’t recommend a better group of people!

Adriana E. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t believe I was seeing other dentists before. My husband started to seeing Dr. Panah for a dental emergency and loved him. Then I recently had a root canal done by him. All I am going to say is, I was falling asleep during my root canal procedure! Dr. Panah is the most professional, gentle and caring dentist I’ve ever seen. His assistants are also great. You don’t wait for your appointment, he’s always on time. They don’t try to sell you anything or push for expensive cleanings. The office is a state of art facility. Katherine at the front desk is extremely nice and very professional. And they are 7 minutes from my house! I am a super satisfied customer and I recommend Dr. Panah and his team 100%.

P. M. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr Panah for pain in a molar with an existing crown and root canal from 30 plus years ago. Once the infection was reduced with antibiotics, Dr Panah carefully removed the old crown and is working on filling adjacent cavities and replacing old crown with a new and better fitting model. Dr Panah is very sincere and I trust the work he is doing. His staff are extremely accommodating and friendly as well. From my recent experience I would definitely recommend Manhattan Beach Dental Esthetics.


Cameron M. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient/client of Dr. Arash Panah’s since 2006, so this review is based on 6 years of experience thus far. Top 3 reasons as to why this is the THE ONLY Dentist I go to: 1. Level of Expertise.   Dr. Panah is just an outstanding dentist who does excellent work.  He graduated from USC Dental School!  That, in and of it by itself carries a lot of weight; And then you learn that Dr. Panah graduated 1st in his class out of 127 people.  That’s a far cry from some guy posting a plaque from obscure schools that make taking online classes at University of Phoenix seem respectable.    Granted, this may not always translate into competence, but after talking to Dr. Panah about 10 minutes regarding your teeth, you’ll come to realize he knows what he is talking about.  After watching him personally design your new crown on the computer right in front of you, you’ll come to believe it. 2.  State of the art equipment:  If you hired the best Hollywood set designers to build an ideal dental office of the future, it’d look something like Dr. Panah’s office.  Flat screen TVs that will keep you entertained in each room are instantly converted into monitors where Dr. Panah will show you digital X-rays of what he is doing, while taking close up photos with fiber optic cameras.  That’s another thing:  Maybe like me, the nerd in you also enjoys knowing what exactly he is doing.  For the past 6 years, Dr. Panah has been really excellent about giving me detailed scientific explanations of what he is doing, and why is he doing it. 3.   Friendly Doctor & office staff.   Every single person in the office, including Dr. Panah, are gregarious, friendly, and personable.  I really don’t want some pompous doc putting pricks in my mouth without explanation.  And I’d presume the the last thing you want after getting your teeth drilled is a rude employee throwing condescending remarks at ya. Fair Balance:  This office is a bit more expensive than some of the other offices you might go to.  Then again, you want the best dentist, maybe you have to pay a little more.  I have previously done the cheaper route.  Most recently, I’ve had to have root canals that another dentist had done years ago “Retreated.” I then to pay for new crowns on those teeth.   The way I see it, you save 1000s of Dollars in the long run by paying a few extra hundred bucks now.  Final Verdict: 5 Stars. At Dental Esthetics, you know you’re getting someone who is the best at what he does with Dr. Panah.  Oh yeah, and completely unrelated, he loves talking about the Lakers so that’s just a personal benefit for me.   He is very personable as mentioned.  Pay him a visit, even if you’re a Celtics fan.  He’ll still treat you right.

Jennifer F. from Redondo Beach, CA  (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arash Panah and his staff are outstanding and his office is state-of-the-art! And he accepts Delta Dental HMO insurance which is extremely reasonable. I had to have 3 wisdom teeth removed last week and I was a positively petrified to have it done. He prescribed 2 Valium for me to take just prior to the procedure to put me at ease. He removed all 3 wisdom teeth in about 10 minutes and I was absolutely astounded with how quick and simple it was. The pain was minimal after the local anesthetic wore off, and I woke up with ZERO pain and swelling the next day! I was truly giddy and amazed! And I’m so relieved that I finally addressed this dental issue as I should have years ago.

Masao L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dentistry at its finest!! I hate going to the dentist but Dr.panah and his staff made me feel very  comfortable for me to over come my dental fears! Everybody from the desk receptionist to the dental assistants and dr’s are very nice! They make you feel like family once you step into the office. I came in with a broken tooth. Not only were they accommodating with my schedule. Dr. Panah made my crown on a computer and was able to seat my crown on the same day! I will definitely be recommending Dental Esthetics to all my family and friends.

Best dental experience every single time. Dr. Pannah is so knowledgeable and inspires confidence. I never thought I could relax in a dentist’s chair, but I am never nervous with Dr. Pannah. I have been going to Manhattan Beach Dental Esthetics for years, and have always been welcomed warmly, seen quickly, and attended to professionally. I also LOVE an appreciate how they check in to my insurance and can let me know ahead of the cost of any treatment. I feel truly lucky to have found this group, and have recommended them to many of my friends and colleagues.

Alyssa O. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Panah and the whole Manhattan Beach Dental team are so unbelievably kind and helpful! Groupon brought me here but their amazing service is what keeps me coming back…and believe me, they see me here a lot! Dr. Panah easily fixed  what I thought was permanent pain i’ve been dealing with for the last year or two. Yes, it was quite a hefty bill, but a long term, 30 years + solution with a 5 year guarantee and payment options if you prefer. And guess what, no pain! He is skilled to make even the deepest of fillings feel like a walk in the park, and I know my fillings…definitely know my fillings! I feel very taken care of here at Dr. Panah’s and I definitely appreciate how informed their whole staff is. To think, this whole time I was flossing ineffectively…no wonder I kept coming back with cavities! They don’t assume you know everything about your teeth, so they take the extra time to make sure you understand what is going on on both ends, yours and theirs. It’s all about meeting half-way!

Kevin P. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 2 daughters love their dentist and have never seen anyone other than Dr Arash. My oldest is 13 and youngest is 11 and just typing this is killing me how fast time flies. My kids have never had to have the dread I felt as a kid and the entire staff has a wonderful “bedside manor”. everyone is friendly and warm. I noticed a few complaints about pricing and I’ve personally never had an issue knowing there are some places that may be cheaper but not everyone wants to shop and Walmart just because the price makes your wallet smile. I don’t thing he brags about it much because I heard it from his brother but he graduated from USC at the very top of his class and even used to teach there after graduating. I think you mostly get what you pay for and I have no complaints about paying a bit more for the best. I recommend him to everyone.

Kim B. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been extremely happy with this dentist’s office. I found this dentist after coming from Hermosa Smiles Dentistry,  where I had my first terrible dentist experience and felt like the dentist was a slick salesman. Going to Manhattan Beach Dental Esthetics was such a relief and a refreshing change. Every single employee, from the front desk staff to the hygienists to the dentist, has been so friendly, down to earth, professional and knowledgeable. I have been taught better techniques for cleaning my teeth. And very importantly, I have NEVER felt as though they were trying to up-sale me. During my last visit I was pregnant and Dr. La Pham was so gentle and considerate of my needing to take breaks and change positions. They even brought me a pillow. She said that she has brushed peoples’ teeth standing up if necessary. I was so impressed to hear that they go to the homes of home-bound people to provide dentistry. Unfortunately MBDE is stopping taking HMO’s. I like them so much I’m going to look at going on a PPO plan so my family can continue coming here.

Paul D. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was my first visit to a civilian dentist after retiring from the U.S. Army. Throughout my life I have experienced many dentist and many through my time In the military. Dr. Panah and his staff were far above what Is considered excellent. He also came  highly recommend from family members (over five) and was really pleased at how pleasant and respectful he and his staff were. From the time I walked In the door to the time I left. My experience with most dentist Is an attitude that you do not really matter and there to take you money. I was given a good cleaning and was given many choices and  advice regarding  my dental issue (not one that would cost me a big dent In my wallet).  This was a good experience and do not plan to go to another dentist. I have spoken to many In the area and for the most part the dentist in the area are below average. This Is concerning MR MARC S. you have way to much time on your hands and write about the job he did NOT how you decided to become “ACE VENTURA” and did you low budget back ground check on his credentials. Its obvious  that you have a “PERSONAL” issue with the Doctor and not a professional one. MR MARC S. you failed to mention YOUR credentials so we In the “YELP” community can review. I’ve met people who graduated at the top of their class and they could not figure out how to load a weapon or use a can opener. Your fixed on the where Dr. Panah went to school and what place he came in. I’m not sure If you know this BUT just because you went to a top ten rated school does not mean you as a graduate are “top rated”. Are you aware that others went to those schools that you slammed and being “below average”? I personally know people that went to those schools and graduated and they seem to be doing just fine. MARC S.. and CHURCH S. (something tells me that this is the same person) both need to rate the service not the school someone attends. Something tells me that Dr. Panah will be having my teeth for a very long time and from the looks of It, I’m not the only one. So I ask my fellow yelp’ers to ignore MARC S. & CHURCH S. and check out the DR. and you’ll see that he will be worth the visit. Oh I failed to mention while I waited he had a child around the 12-14yr old range and I was shocked how good he handled the kid and his parent. Having two nephews, now my brother and I have the dentist issue solved. DR. Panah and his staff get two thumbs up and what the heck two big toes too!*** UPDATE*********MARC S. Has failed to mention that CHURCH S. ACTUALLY RECOMMENDED’S DR. PANAH AS WELL this Is a direct quote from his YELP review (check it out for yourself to verify)… “Modern dentist know NEW technology which drives the PRACTICE. This guy is a saint who helped me. Anything goes I completely recommend & endorse Dr. Panah & his wife also a DDS”. MARC S. GET YOU FACTS STRAIGHT BEFORE YOU TYPE SUCH BOGUS INFORMATION AND GET A HOBBY…YOU CAN BEGIN FIRST BY TELLING THE TRUTH!
