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

I really love this place.  The staff is so friendly and accommodating. I’ve been with them from the start in the Valley location, and for many years prior in the Manhattan Beach location, even when I lived far away.  Just always had good care and a great experience. Love that they send me reminders and always give me a new toothbrush too ;).

Aaron U. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely love Modern American Dentistry! I’ve been a patient of Dr. Gabe for several years now and I’ve been a happy patient from the beginning. Dr. Gabe is great and the whole staff is wonderful. Let me tell you that this is not your run of the mill dentists office. I know that going to the dentist can be an intimidating or scary experience for some but everyone at MAD make you feel so comfortable and at ease the entire time. So much so that I actually look forward to going to the dentist now. Kenitha in particular is my favorite hygienist! If you’re looking for a new dentist; someone you you’ll feel comfortable with and can trust Dr. Gabe and everyone at MAD is just what you’re looking for.

Dr. Gabe is my dentist, and he’s amazing!. I’d like to take all the credit for how good of a dentist Gabe is, Since I have been his mentor since long before he decided to go back into dental school. But it was his hard work that allowed him to become the  talented Dentist  you all hopefully come and visit often. Today Dr. Gabe did a bone graft in an area where I lost a molar. I’ve had terrible teeth my whole life, due to a vitamin D deficiency. Dr. Gabe is placing my implant and working with my new associate dentist in Manhattan beach Dr. Omar. My whole goal with modern American dentistry was to have different generations of Dentist share their knowledge and help each other. Gabe was a perfect example of a young person who helped me with his knowledge of technology, and I helped with showing him the pitfalls of the early years of dentistry and how to avoid making unnecessary mistakes. Dr. Gabe is a talented surgeon and when the Novocain wore off there was only mild discomfort. Though I know the procedure was rough he was beyond gentle. I am definitely biased but I think that Dr. Gabe is one of the best dentist around and I’m honored to have had a hand in helping him become the compassionate talented caregiver he is today. Send your friends and family, he is kind compassionate and caring. (We also have an  amazing snoring and sleep apnea program)

My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Gabe for the last four years and both he and his staff are really incredible. They always explain everything to you carefully and never pressure you into treatment you don’t need or want. Dr. Gabe is really skilled and takes great care to be sure you don’t experience pain during dental procedures. Plus they always take the time to check up on you after if you’ve had any sort of problem or major work. I’ve been to a lot of different dentists in my life and he is by far the best. Highly recommend him!

This place was awesome! I had not gone to the dentist in a few years because i had moved and not sure who to choose.  I decided to go with modern American dentist and Dr. Gabe along with his hygienists were the best.  I never had a dentist go into such detail with their findings and suggestions. I have never had my teeth cleaned as good as how the hygienists do here. You will not be disappointed at all.

Alonzo F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I only have absolutely wonderful things to say about this dental office Dr Gabe. Sincerely takes care of his patients. The office and the staff are incredibly welcoming… The entire group as a team, make certain.. you are aware and  completely kept in the loop.  Throughout your treatment and time there. Very calming. I have completely enjoyed my experience with them and I think that the new office is wonderful… I would recommend him to anyone, whom ever has any Dental needs…

Kimberly S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


My second appointment with Dr. Gabe and his team was again outstanding. The receptionist was super helpful, sincere, and friendly; Denise, the dental hygienist was terrific and gentle, and Dr. Gabe himself was efficient and personable. I’m impressed every time I come in.

Nicole Klein (Source: Google)


Dr Gabe and his staff are phenomenal. I found them through my dental insurance site and couldn’t be happier. My cleaning and exam were quick and efficient. A few weeks later I called for severe pain in my jaw and head and they got me right in. I was worried I’d need to find a TMJ specialist. Dr Gabe said I didn’t need to see a specialist and that I had been wearing the wrong night guard for years. He had a new night guard made for me and I have been headache and jaw pain free since the first night I wore it.  Dr Gabe even made me a temporary night guard to wear until my new one was delivered. Dr Gabe and his office have saved me a lot of money I would have happily paid to a specialist. I feel very lucky to have found them. My husband is on a different dental care plan and I am switching him to mine so that he can see Dr Gabe as well. They are that good.

I became a patient’s of Dr. Gabe when my former dentist stopped accepting my insurance. I am so glad to have met Dr. Gabe and his wonderful staff. I am always in need of dental care and it’s very important for me to find someone that I can trust. Dr. Gabe is very knowledgeable and gives feedback and direction that are in his client’s best interest. I trust his judgment and decisions about my dental care. He is incredibly caring, friendly and approachable. I highly recommend Dr. Gabe.

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


Dr, Gabe is amazing and his staff is great. After my wife and I had our dental work done, we both got calls from the doctor himself checking in to make sure we were comfortable. It’s a relaxed atmosphere, all the staff are constantly smiling (maybe because they have perfect teeth…)  and Dr. Gabe thoroughly answered all my questions. He even let me hold a mirror up to see exactly what he was doing, all the while explaining each step. I doubt everyone will be able to do that, my work was cosmetic but I appreciated the lesson! I recommend them and I’ve been to other dentist in LA, this place is the best thus far.

Steven C. from West Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


The quality starts from before you even enter the office. Being able to do the paperwork online and submit it straight from the website was very helpful. I was greeted by friendly staff. I started off with a teeth cleaning that I normally dread, but it was a comfortable experience (which for me says alot). They have the latest technology for digital xrays and I loved the still pictures of the inside of my mouth (now I know what the dentist is looking at). Dr. Gabe was thorough in explaining what was going on. He also didn’t brow beat me for not being good about my flossing habits. Being a health professional myself — I appreciate a quality office — this is quality!

I love coming to this office! Dr. Gabe is super friendly and professional. My appointments are always on time and all my concerns and questions are always address at ever visit. I recommend this practice to anyone who want is looking for a family oriented practice and or just a friendly and conservative dentist near you!

Brian S. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went to visit Dr. Gabe for “burning mouth syndrome” and he did a great job of researching it and recommending doctors and reasons why it may have happened. I am very happy with him following up and even contacting another doctor to find out possible causes and then following up by calling me with the explanations. I will be seeing him for future dental work as a result of this great experience and look forward to his detailed care and service. He was able to show me digital pictures of how my fillings had decayed and needed to be replaced. The staff seemed very nice and attentive. The facility was very clean and had state of the art technology. There is even plenty of parking in the lot. Highly recommended dentist who actually cares about his patients!

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


I chose Northridge Smile Center based on Yelp reviews.  And I must say it held up to its reviews. I will say I am a very needy client.  I have very high expectations and crazy work hours and Dr. Gabe and his staff are always accommodating.  They are a very honest staff always giving you honest advice on care.  As I’m sure you all know there’s a lot of shady dentists out there. But take my advice this is not one of them!

Rohit R. from Panorama City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was my second visit at the Northridge Smile Canter, and one more time, my dentist, Dr. Gab Adorjan, proved that he is simply a genius and master of the art and science of dentistry. The reason as to why I keep coming here is because I am really impressed by his skills and brilliance, and want  people to find their true dentist, so they dont have trouble in their mouths.This doctor is able to understand you even when your mouth is numb, and you can barely talk. In fact, he would answer me at almost the same time I would  question him. Lot of times you find dentists, but your pain does not end, and even if it does, its temporary. But when your tooth/teeth get fixed by a good dentist, you eat, talk and sleep without any discomfort or pain. This place is simply awesome. I understand tooth pain, and so, want to encourage people to find their good dentist. If you need any reference, just try emailing me at

Kage N. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gabe and staff are absolutely amazing!! I went to his place from a dentist in Santa Monica who I also had a great deal of respect for. Dr Gabe is much closer to me however, and as it happens, turned out to be amazing!! Solved problems and made my teeth look awesome in a matter of a few months! Problems my other dentist just didn’t see fit to address for some reason. Not quite sure, but I’m grateful – I went for years dealing with problems that I thought I was just going to have to live with. He took care of them like they were no big deal. He and his staff are the best I’ve ever dealt with hands down…

Esibella T. from Stevenson Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a wonderful experience with Dr. Gabe and his staff, Everyone was friendly and professional. The office is clean.. I have had some bad experiences with dentists in the past like many people have, but my visit yesterday did not feel like those. I didn’t have to wait nor did was my appointment rushed. The hygienist did a throughly cleaning and both her and Dr. Gabe took time to discuss what was found during my exam and cleaning so that we could make a plan to address my dental issues going forward… I personally hate going to the dentist however I think Dr. Gabe and his staff will do their best to make it comfortable for me… they were all great.

Ryan Taylor (Source: Google)


Dr. Gabe is an excellent dentist. He took the time to explained every procedure he was doing. For example, when I did my fillings, Dr. Gabe was very supportive, and thorough when performing the process. He is a professional and has a naturally relaxing personality. I would recommend Dr. Gabe to everyone. He is the best dentist I have ever had.

Kim F. from Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough about this wonderful practice !! As soon as I walk in the door I am made to feel comfortable . The amazing staff is very knowledgeable and super friendly .  Dr Gabe is very contentious and sensitive to your dental needs . He knows how to put me at ease and keep me relaxed during my visits . Ive finally found my forever dentist ! I highly recommend this practice !

Dr. Gabe hired me to take some interior/exterior pictures of his practice when it was closed. As we were busy working on the pictures, someone walked into the practice not knowing it was closed. This person had questions about his tooth and needed help. Instead of telling this person that the practice was closed and to come back or set up an appointment, Dr. Gabe dropped everything he was doing and helped this person with his questions and concerns. He probably spent about 30 minutes just chatting with this person that he’d never met and I could tell that he genuinely cared about this person who just basically walked in without an appointment during closed business hours. I’ve worked with many dentists and I can tell you that most dentists in that type of a situation, would have told the person that the practice was closed and to call and make an appointment during business hours -but not Dr. Gabe. Dr. Gabe is just a stand-out individual. He’s very friendly and genuinely cares about people.

These guys are great.  I lost a crown overnight in DFW after flying from the east coast.  Then on to LAX.  Once there I looked for a dentist that was close my hotel and had a decent rating.   Well with 5 stars I called Dr. Gabe first and explained my situation.  The receptionist took down my insurance information over the phone and called me back about an hour later verifying the ins coverage.  Then they managed to fit me in the next morning!  Right there on the spot fixed the tooth and put in a temporary crown and put a rush on the permanent crown so it would be ready the next week when I was back in LA.   The temporary crown came off but since the tooth was fixed there was very little discomfort this time so I did not even try to put it back.   When he went to put the permanent crown on it was not so good (probably due to me moving the mold) and the gum had covered some of the tooth due the missing temp.   Again he fixed it right up on the spot and turned another rush  for the following week.  The following week I was in the chair less than 10 minutes.   The crown went in perfectly and the bite was perfect on the first try.  Just glued it up and sent me on my way!  Life is good but my regular dentist on the east coast has retired and I would definitely use Dr. Gabe long term if I could.   Maybe I will just need to make regular visits into Woodland Hills.

Anne B. from Van Nuys, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a tooth that needed to be extracted, and Dr. Gabe took his time with me, explaining why the tooth should be removed and what the procedure entailed.  He drew diagrams and answered all of my questions.  I have never felt so comfortable in a dental situation before — his office is beautiful and the equipment is state of the art.  Dr. Gabe clearly loves his profession and he cares about his patients.  And, free and ample parking!  It doesn’t get any better than this.

Initial consultation – excellent. Incredibly efficient online sign-up requiring no endless paper forms in the office – was in the chair fast, had x-rays and photos taken then talked to Dr. Gabe – who from my 20 or so minutes with him appeared to be very focused and professional (remembered minute details from my intake forms), listened intently, answered my questions, applied no sales pressure, and had a conservative, important things first, approach to what needs to be done. Modern equipment, friendly staff. Signed up for additional visits and work.

P. W. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Modern American Dentistry since it took over from my previous dentist, who retired. Dr. Gabe is extremely warm and engaged with his patients, both at a personal level and relative to their health. For me, he noticed wear from grinding and suggested a night guard, which I feel really has improved my sleep and pain/strain in my jaw. Further, Dr. Gabe followed up with a recording pulse oximeter to test me for sleep apnea to make sure that wasn’t the root cause. He took extra time to sit down with me, and go through the results, which showed no evidence of sleep apnea. Dr. Gabe takes as much time as is necessary to answer patient questions which is really exceptional in medicine these days. With respect to cleanings, my hygienist Kanitha is awesome. She is thorough, gentle, and friendly and similarly takes time to answer any questions I might have. I drive about 45 minutes from Pasadena to see Dr. Gabe and crew and I couldn’t be happier.

Nico F. from Mission Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for over 6 years now, the doctors may have changed, but the welcoming atmosphere which makes you feel at home and the people who work there make it such a great experience. I’m always in and out no matter what the situation is. I couldn’t imagine going anywhere else, this place almost makes you not mind going to the dentist, even if it’s for a bad reason.

Patricia L. from Northridge, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gabe is not only knowledgeable and up to date in current dental procedures, he is thorough and careful. His work is so well done that my endodontist practically gasped when she saw the crown he had placed. He and his assistants are observant and monitor for any discomfort or pain and the dental experience are as painless as one can get.

Leslie K. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not a great patient. I gag. I clench. Sometimes on someone’s fingers. But all was good on my first visit to Dr. Gabe–on a Saturday, no less. Kudo’s to his assistant Hazel, too. She was on top of what the Doc needed before he needed it. Knows her stuff, which makes them a very strong, efficient team. And Dr. Gabe: patient, knowledgeable, professional and caring. He even called to see how I was doing after the weekend. NONE of my doctors do that!!!  I’m going back. And I’ll recommend  Dr Gabe and his team to all my friends.

Linda Neely (Source: Google)


I know that it’s unusual, but I look forward to visiting my dentist… Even though I go through some anxiety and sometimes some pain, it’s worth it because I get to spend time with people that I like to spend time with. It’s awesome to catch up with every staff member, they all have such warm personalities and love to share what’s going on in their lives. The facility is always such a pleasure to be in and the care and compassion from Dr. Gabe is always beyond what anyone could deserve.

Alan Cueba (Source: Google)


I have been Doctor Gabe’s patient more than a year now. He and his staff have always been very friendly and professional. Their dental hygienist is excellent and does great work. Currently I am having a tooth implant requiring multiple appointments. Dr. Gabe has taken the time to explain the procedure each step of the way. Great dentist. Great staff!

Jessica F. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


After shopping around for months. Going dentist to dentist, I landed at northridge smile center. A blessing, to say the least. The whole crew is awesome, they made me feel right at home. Dr. Gabe is by far one of the best dentist I have come across in a long time. Although young and relatively new in the field, was able to give me piece of mind and made me feel safe. Attention to detail, caring and passionate about his work. His ability to answer all my questions and put all my doubts to rest was priceless. He was even able to pin point the problem to my teeth deterioration, something that I’ve struggled with since having my children, ACID REFLUX. Yes you read right! Who would’ve known. Not me. But now I know. I will be undergoing a procedure for implants and I could not be in better hands. That’s the confidence that Dr. Gabe has instilled in me. I can’t wait to have my smile back. Looking forward to a great outcome.
Thanks guys!

Diane Z This is my first review. I felt compelled to write it.  I have been going to this office for a very long time.  When Dr. VanDuser retired I decided to stay and try the new Dr. out. The reason I stayed is because of  the wonderful staff.  Since I live in Valencia and the office is in Northridge that’s a testament to the staff….even if one of them is a diehard Angel fan and I am a diehard Dodger fan.   I was disappointed with the replacement Dentist and not happy with his work. I also noticed a change in the atmosphere throughout the office. I went back for cleaning last summer and noticed the staff was noticeably happier. I was then told that my new dentist would be Dr. Gabe.  He came in and spoke to me for quite a while.  I felt really good about him then and still do.  He has been wonderful!!!  I will, definitely, continue to go to him for my dental health. I am so happy to see the staff so happy again.   🙂

I cannot express how happy I am with this office and dentist. The staff is amazing so kind professional and helpful they explain everything and answered all my questions. Dr Gabe Adorjan is extremely knowledgeable and gentle he takes the time to listen and actually help. I would definitely recommend him to all of my loved ones.

The office is very compelling and attractive. The staff are very nice . Dr Gabe is very knowledgeable . He is honest and will only do treatment on what you need. I highly recommend Dr Gabe @ Moder American Dentistry.

We use the latest technology and the best materials to ensure our patients have reliable, long-lasting dentistry. Located in Woodland Hills, CA, our state-of-the-art cosmetic dental practice specializes in smile makeovers to give you the teeth you have always dreamed of. I grew up in a small village in Hungary. My hardworking and brave father relocated our family to the United States when I was twelve to seek better opportunities outside of the restraints of communism. Transitioning from a small community in Hungary and adjusting to the vastness of the United States was a huge cultural shift. It instilled toughness and resilience in me. My father's bravery--relocating our family to achieve a better life--instilled determination. Bullying in school, which I overcame through toughness, also taught me to be compassionate to everyone, no matter their background or challenges. I received my business degree from CSUN in 2001 and later graduated from UNLV dental school--choosing the latter because of its technology-driven dental school programs. It was here that I honed my skills and fell in love with the art and science of dentistry. My goal is to provide the best general dentistry and cosmetic dentistry in Woodland Hills, California.
