My experience at Manhattan beach dental solutions was amazing. Dr.Lee took his time to explain the procedure , he made recommendations as far as options for anesthesia and I am glad I followed his advice . Before the my appointment, they sent me preference sheet   I mentioned I would like a blanket. It’s like a spa , sure enough i was offered a blanket . These kinds of details are the ones that make the difference in making you feel comfortable. Valerie did my cleaning and I was amazed, it required patience and time. I was beyond happy when I saw how clean my teeth were , they look like I had them whitened. Fernanda was also amazing. She took my xrays but made me feel very comfortable through out because she explained the process well. Definitely will recommend if you are looking for excellent service all around .

Registered Dental Hygienst Valerie was superior. She was thorough and explained everything as she went along. She was also gentle in the more sensitive areas of my gums. She also had good suggestions for better dental care. Dr. Lee was very good as well. He found a couple of teeth that need follow on repair. The entire operation inspires patient confidence. They are also very nice people.

So for the past visits that I have done I was always greeted with a family vibe. The employees are great especially Gladis, Kris and Nataly. I Also think Dr.Lee is a great guy because he takes the time to get to know the client such as myself and he  as well as all the staff that I have and haven’t mentioned make you feel comfortable and at home. Plus it’s right next to the beach come on now you can go there before or after you’re visit it’s a win/win. But yeah that is all I have to say.

Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions I’m very satisfied with my experience at this practice. 1st time visitor treated like a long time patient. Beginning with my first call the friendly staff fit me in that same day to repair a chipped front tooth. Great location, clean office and no wait time, very nice. Dr. Lee, thank you! I am lucky to have found you and will continue on with your practice. My repair is perfect, your explanation of options appreciated, and your positive energy is refreshing. Tracy explained my benefits clearly and was receptive to my questions. That was a welcome difference from other offices I’ve been in, typically informing me after the procedure. This office provides end to end top shelf services. Without hesitation I’m stamping, “Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions” with a 5 star rating. This rating is applied across the board.

This is the way a dental practice should operate. Very professional and a wonderful team really focuses on the patient. They have the latest and most effective technology on hand, making any visit an effective use of time.

Dr Lee and Fern are AMAZING!!!  I chipped a back molar over Memorial weekend and I was going to lose my insurance in 3 days… long story short, everyone in the office was just so friendly and helpful!  America called me back and scheduled an emergency appt for me. Deana helped me with my insurance.  I’ve always been afraid of the dentist, bad childhood experiences.  Dr Lee was so patient, thoughtful, and methodical.  He was gentle and explained every step before and during the procedure.  If Dr Lee were my dentist when I was a kid, I would definitely NOT be so fearful. But I want to give a special shoutout to Fern!  She knew how extremely terrified and nervous I was (I was gripping the blanket and dental chair the whole time).  Occasionally, she would squeeze my shoulder or hand, to let me know everything will be ok, that she’s there and I am in good hands.

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


You can beat getting your teeth cleaned and being one block away from the beach!! Marie and the entire staff are great and made my experience pleasant!! Highly recommended as a dental home.

I’ve been going to Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions my whole life. The friendly and professional environment keeps me coming back each year. Tracy at the reception desk is very helpful and so sweet. Marie is an exceptional hygienist with years of experience. Though there has a been a change of dentists recently, I will still continue to go. Dr. Lee has proven to be an excellent replacement. I have had fillings done by Dr. Lee and he is extremely gentle and efficient. You can tell he cares about the patient’s comfort and is knowledgeable about his work. I recommend Dr. Lee and this dental office to anyone!

I used to hate going to the dentist so much but Dr. Lee changed my perception about dentist appointments. Him and the staff are so friendly and it makes it pleasant to be around them, I’m no longer anxious when going to the dentist. Also he has done amazing work on the health of my teeth and on some fillings and a chipped tooth. He is so gentle and has great communication regarding what he is doing and what needs to be worked on. Best dentist I’ve ever had!

Monkichi O. from San Pedro, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend Dr. Lee. He is my current dentist and he is warm, welcoming, thorough and knowledgeable. Dr. Lee took time to explain every steps in the composite filling procedure and he listened to my concerns regarding local anesthesia. Best of all: I didn’t feel any pain at all and it was fast so I get back to work.

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


Dr Lee is the best dentist I have ever been to !! He replaced a crown for me today plus did my deep cleaning of gums .  His technique in giving me the local did not hurt one bit .  He is explained every step to me and was so kind .  He is genuinely a very nice man and a terrific dentist .  I would recommend him to everyone .  I have to admit I am always nervous about dental procedures , but not anymore as long as I have Dr Lee !!!

Dr. Lee is professional, responsive, competent, and courteous just like the rest of the wonderful staff. He does excellent work since the dental work I had done didn’t need any further adjustments after the first time as I’ve experienced with other dentists where my bite was off and painful, the tooth was shaved so sharp where it kept cutting me, and severe soreness. I did not have any of that since he knew what he was doing. I give Dr. Lee a thumbs up recommendation!

Brennan L. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience all around. Very nice facility and staff is amazing.  I had two crowns done and 4 fillings replaced. Dr. is very careful and detailed, took his time and did great job. Facilities and technology is all of the latest stuff which makes it all much easier. Don’t have to do temporary crowns and all of that jazz. Did it all in one 4 hour procedure.

Ken A. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I rarely do written recommendations, but when I experience something extraordinary, I feel that I should share it. Such is the case with my recent visit to Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions. I have been a patient of this dental facility since the early nineties. I have seen it evolve over the years into something special. It has always been cutting edge dentistry. Recently, I had my semi annual routine dental exam. Some serious things were discovered and I was advised to have them taken care of. Shortly after that, I returned to have these things taken care of . . . FOUR crowns. At one sitting. And, since MB Dental Solutions has the ability to make their own crowns in-house, I didn’t have to go through the tedious routine of having four temporary crowns done and later returning for the actual crown fitting which could involve more anesthesia. That’s a major advantage. Dr. Lee is one of the most talented, caring, dentists I’ve ever encountered. Constantly concerned with my comfort and well being. As well as being a genuine artist. His tooth color matching was awesome. Very important since two of the four crowns were my two front teeth. My friends find it hard to believe that I had four crowns done completely in one sitting. And, the next day feeling like nothing had happened. TEN stars for Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions . . . and especially Dr. Lee.

Fernanda; Was sweet, kind, and super professional. I’ve never had such a EDUCATINONAL, FRESH, CLEAN service anywhere else. Whoever picked up the phone was also the reason why I even came. So thank you team. Merry Christmas!

Deana H. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic staff who is very knowledge and truly cares for their patients well being. They understand that your oral health affects your health in general and are proactive in helping you to have healthy teeth and gums in addition to a beautiful smile. The office is very clean and comfortable. They take the time to explain things and make you feel welcome and safe. Was a bit nervous to go to the dentist at this time with COVID-19 and all but, they are taking every precaution to keep everyone safe. I highly recommend Manhattan Beautiful Dental Solutions.

Dental care was excellent. Appointment proceeded on time and Dr. Lee’s work was painless and Leslie is a great assistant. Very personable. They followed up with me next day as well to see how I was doing. Nice touch. I recommend 100%

All staff members and medical personnel are extremely professional and catering specifically to customers specific needs. I have referred family members and friends and we all will be going back for future work. I am pleased that you can have a crown created and fitted on your tooth the very same visit bypassing the need to be fitted with a temporary crown and therefore returning for a second visit to complete the work. Thank you Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions for your honest care and wonderful dental work!

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


Great service! I filled out a questionnaire online before my appointment where I specified I’m terrified of Dentist. And I feel they took that into consideration. The staff is phenomenal! All so polite and helpful making the ambience and experience comfortable. I highly recomend. Also the office itself is clean and they are in my opinion up to code which put me at ease specially during these hard times.

Jake F. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have used this dentist for the past several years. A few aspects of their service stand-out: 1.) Everyone (including the staff) is incredibly friendly and willing to go the extra mile for their patients. 2.) That same courtesy extends to their dentists, too. Not only are the staff dentists immensely knowledgeable, they are also very attentive. They will not hesitate to check-up on you after a procedure and are more than willing to answer any and all questions. Can’t say enough positive things about this place. Thanks again!

Angela D. from Charlotte, NC (Source: Yelp)


I came here to get a night guard made since I clench my jaw in my sleep. Dr. Lee took impressions of my teeth and did a great job explaining the reasoning for the clicking noises my jaw makes. He was very nice and helpful with giving me professional advice about my clenching problem. When he was taking impressions of my teeth, I messed up it about 2 times (either biting too hard or slightly moving my teeth), but he was very patient! He was very optimistic and open to questions for my entire visit!

Sara C. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Manhattan Beach Dental solutions for years and have loved it. Everyone is so welcoming and they do a great job of getting you in and out at a reasonable time. The staff is knowledgeable and give helpful tips to get you your best smile yet!

Cristhofer Capito (Source: Google)


absolutely the best dentist in town! I normally have a big fear to dentist, but I finally found a place where I can feel confortable and cared for. since the people from the front desk to the hygienist that assisted me. She made a wonderful job cleaning my teeth and I felt no pain whatsoever. I recommend Manhattan Beach Dental Solutions 100 %!!  if you need a dentist stop looking this is the place!

Just left the dentist for the first time in 15 years (yeah, I know) and it was amazing! Forgo your fear and make an appointment today!! Huge shoutout to the Downtown Manhattan Beach Mother’s day contest for collaborating with such amazing businesses for this opportunity, and to finally force me to get back in that chair! Winning a simple Instagram contest has just improved my quality of life tremendously! I can’t thank the doctor and staff enough for all the time and energy they spent with me today (and patience for my nervous babbling) going over my oral health and giving me such great solutions to some problems I’ve been avoiding for Years!  If you haven’t been, go! I had x-rays and an exam, but I was also able to take part in their newest 3D scanning “Itero Scanner” which was amazing! From the moment I walked in the door all of my nervousness subsided as I was greeted by staff with open arms and a lot of of laughs! Dr. “G” was super patient, thorough, and upfront about everything from my exam and walked me through 15 years of neglect! Thank you for that!! It definitely won’t be another 15 now that I have a local dentist who can provide such great information and options! Thanks again guys, here’s to fixing my smile, finally!
