So here’s an update, a good one though, so don’t be alarmed 🙂 lol I love this dentist office because they are always so kind and honestly j live how you can watch T.V. while you wait In your actual room. I honestly referred my whole family to this dentist! I really like how fast and gentle he is as well as thorough! It’s difficult for me to trust a dentist but Dr. Tajik is the very best and he is always smiling 🙂 thankyou for helping me with my teeth and letting me know that my hygiene is on point ahahaha 🙂 !!! I’m always so excited for my appointments with him!

I am beyond grateful to have Dr. Tajik as my dentist. From the moment you walk in you know you are cared for, in capable hands & in for a painless procedure. I trusted Dr. Tajik with a cosmetic case that was very sensitive to me…a case that was rejected by other dentists in the past, but he took on and worked on me for months. His professionalism, intelligence, patience, dedication, generosity & hard work has changed the appearance of my smile, my look and my life forever! I truly am a new person. The staff are wonderful as well! I recommend Modern Smiles to everyone.

Dr. Kaz and the team at Modern Smiles Dentistry did a truly amazing job on my veneers. I had about 20 veneers in total that needed replacement. Dr. Kaz was meticulous during the entire process starting from the initial free consultation and smile analysis to the mock up veneers, the laboratory and final delivery of my new gorgeous veneers. He was very particular and detail oriented while being sensitive to my needs. Getting dental work done is stressful but having a handsome dentist with a fun personality made it a breeze. If you are looking for a cosmetic dentist that has a great eye, cares about his work and patients he definitely is the one .

Morgann C. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


I had a free consultation and it was great. Very short wait time. The doctors office was very neat with good parking. The staff from the front desk lady to the doctor was amazing. The front desk lady was so kind and polite in person and over the phone. The doctor was very honest and didn’t try to talk me into getting anything I didn’t need. I am looking forward to getting my Invisalign with this dentist. And hopefully they will start accepting medical soon so I could make this my primary dentist.

I’d like to start off by saying I have never had a better dentist than Dr. Tajik. He came highly recommended to me by a close friend, and I was not disappointed. He was pleasant, informative, and spent time to give me options on how to manage my TMJ and cavities. I’ve seen several dentists in North Hollywood and I believe he is the best one.

RW. M. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Really enjoy the atmosphere and staff here! From the Receptionist at the front to everyone in the back, super nice people! By far the MOST HONEST Dental office I’ve ever been to! I was under Doctor Tajik and Lucy’s care. Both were extremely professional and friendly and gave me a great deal of unbiased information about my dental health. It was definitely an educational experience for myself to say the least. The procedure itself (I was in for a deep cleaning) was done extremely well. I felt NO PAIN at all, and got a complimentary dental examination done as well. Furthermore, the results of the cleaning itself were EXCELLENT. They really took their time from scraping in between the teeth to polishing and every other step in the process. I will definitely return for other dental services.

Fabian R. from Northeast Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Tajik is caring, skilled & knowledgable at his craft. Right from the jump when I spoke to him at my first visit I knew I had made the perfect choice of coming to him for my dental work. Got couple procedures done that I needed and now going to get Invasalign treatment. Couldn’t be more happy and grateful with Dr Tajik and I know he will deliver a great overall smile for me. Great and friendly overall staff with a great vibe. Plan on coming here for years to come. Would recommend to everyone.

I had gone to the same dentist for a longtime and due to my recent move had to find a new dentist. I came across Modern Smiles in North Hollywood after searching online, researching their reviews and checking with my insurance. From the first call to my actual visit, I loved my experience here. Nicely put together place, very gentle and caring dentist. Dr. Tajik sat there for an hour answering my questions explaining things. No pressure to start anything, and it felt like they were simply happy to have me there. I got my prophy cleaning and will be back to do some whitening. Thanks Modern Smiles for getting my teeth ready for the summer 🙂

Amazing dental office located in North Hollywood. Dr. Kasra is very professional and nice. He does amazing cosmetic work and is very affordable. His staff are very pleasant and nice. They all made me feel so comfortable. I will be going back to start my invisalign treatment soon. Highly recommend Dr. Kasra and his practice to everyone.

Monica D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Absolutely wonderful! I’ve always been rather good with keeping up with my yearly cleanings. Thus, it was that time of the year again and I decided to visit Modern Smiles after a dear friend of mine recommended me. I made an appointment for a cleaning and Sadie (the hygienist), did an amazing job! I’ve never had my teeth cleaned so thoroughly before! My teeth/mouth never felt so clean before!!
Side note: the massage dental chair was a plus!!

Lisa K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow! I wish I could give this place more than 5 stars. An absolute class act! Immaculate, modern, organized, friendly, patient. I had been postponing a molar extraction for a very long time because I don’t have dental insurance and of course I was imagining that it would cost a fortune and be terribly painful and of course that I would have to wait forever for an appointment. They called me back the very next morning and set up an appointment. There was NO wait. Free parking. Dr Tajik was amazing. It was inexpensive, painless and quick. I am not exaggerating and I cannot praise them enough. This was a pipe dream compared to what I’ve experienced in the past. I read reviews before inquiring and the reviews were all extremely positive. Now I know why.

I highly recommend Modern Smiles. Dr. Kasra Tajik is one of the best cosmetic dentists I’ve had the privilege to meet. I first met Dr. Tajik while he was studying at USC Ostrow School of Dentistry. Since then he was highly recommended by his piers and professors. Besides the impeccable work and work ethic that he does, he will makes sure that you will have a great experience.

Melissa T. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I heard about Dr. Kosdon’s office through my colleagues at work so he came highly recommended.  I usually don’t stick to one dentist b/c I’ve never really felt warm & fuzzies from any of the previous ones I’d seen so wasn’t sure how it’d go.  From the get go, the staff was always so helpful, took their time to explain charges, payment options, etc.  As for my teeth, I smile a lot and one thing I’d always wanted to fix was how out of line my teeth were.  Dr. Kosdon recommended Invisalign and after a year I got the results I always wanted.  That was about 3 years ago…and I’ve loved everything about my experience there that I’ve still continued going there and will continue to.  I have recommended him to my friends as well and they’ve all been happy with their experience.  Not sure what all the 1 star reviews are about on here that you may see but I can tell you that I’ve NEVER encountered a bad experience there nor have ever felt uncomfortable, taken advantage of or rushed with my visits.  I only wish I’d have heard about his office years ago.   Best dentist ever!

Francisco E. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am one of those that cannot stand the dentist, maybe childhood issues, maybe nerves, pain. Had a broken root on a wisdom tooth, that kept on getting infected and making me miserable. After calling the office, they gave me a same day appointment, tried to save my tooth and ended up taking it out (due to the root that was fractured). For the extraction and failed root canal, I was given Halcion, one pill before the procedure, well I have to say, did not knock me out, but I was not grabbing the chair rests like I was going to be launched into hyperspace. So, not a pleasant experience, but my issue was taken care of, so I am grateful for that. Don’t remember when was the last time I felt so good after a dental visit. Do I recommend them? YES I do, Dr. Saad has magic hands, and her staff is just awesome. I am thankful to have found them

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


De.Tajik and his staff are so sweet and understanding of your feelings and do their best to ensure you that everything will turn out okay. I have had a tooth extraction else where and must I say nothing compare to the work that was done here at modern smiles. It has only been a couple hours from three tooth extractions I had earlier today and feel very little to no pain at all just minor discomfort. I would highly recommend coming here for any procedure you need done. 10/10

Niu S. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


After having a horrible experience with my previous dentist, I decided to change my dentist. I was referred to Dr. Tajik through a friend of mine and I am so glad I took the step to see him. Not only he was so considerate about all the concerns I had previously with my tooth, but he was also so generous of his time to explain all the option moving forward and the pros and cons of each which was so precious for me given that I had a very much opposite experience with my previous dentist. I had a painful, infected and full of composite tooth that had a weird angle as my previous Dr failed to diagnose it as a dead tooth!! Dr. Tajik made sure to get into the root in a way that was harder for him given the angle but better for me as there was a possibility of causing more damage to the very little remainder of the original enamel. It’s hard to find a caring dentist, I am truly grateful for his gentle, creative touch and the peace of mind he brought me in the process. One of the best decisions I ever made! Thank you Dr. Tajik for being trustworthy, supportive and professional =)

Arpi M. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a very pleasant experience with Dr. Tajik and his staff. I was very anxious about the appointment and the procedure, but Dr. Tajik was very patient and calm which made me feel very comfortable.  Dr. Tajik’s staff was also very helpful and kind and they made sure I was at ease for the 4  1/2 hours I was there. Dr. Tajik is very professional, he takes the time to explain what needs to be done and provides valuable advice, it’s not easy to find a good dentist and I highly recommend Dr. Tajik and his staff.  Thank you for my new smile Dr. Tajik!

Victoria J. from Valley Glen, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Tajik is the most professional, cordial and knowledgeable doctor you’ll ever come across. From the moment I walked into the office, I knew I was at the right place. I had a terrible experience at another dental office in Universal City. They made the worst possible set of crowns. It was uneven, bulky, poor quality, poor functionality, gaps behind the crowns, uncomfortable, incorrect color and so much more. Luckily, I met Dr. Tajik and he made it right again! The appearance and functionality of the crowns he presented are simply amazing. You will never know that I have crowns as it looks like my original teeth. I couldn’t be happier after the nightmare I had to go through with the other dental office. I can’t express my level of happiness and satisfaction with Dr. Tajik!!!

Tai K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had tons of teeth work to get fixed. I couldn’t afford it because it was so much work. I was in possible trouble of kidney and liver issues from decay. Multiple cavaties and root canals. Possible implant surgery. My father left me a little money thank God RIP Dad, and I was able to afford getting all my teeth fixed over a period of 3 months. I was able to apply for Aetna Vital dental savings plan which thank God Tajik took! And omg he is a such a loving soul to have taken this insurance because I saved so much money and was able to get whole mouth of teeth fixed with my budget and it was going to exceed my budget and be about 20k+ withoput this insurance being accepted! I came to Dr Tajik with my mess of a mouth. I had perfect teeth until 30 and then everything caught up with me in my 30s. This man and his Angel team of assistants fixed EVERY problem in my mouth. I have perfect teeth now and not one of them feels anything but natural! It is a MIRACLE!! I have no issues with chewing or things getting stuck in my bad teeth like before and now I actually kind of enjoy eating again! Dr tajik is a gentleman, a scholar, and a true genius! This man can do the entire process from cleaning to difficult dental surgery in one place! No waiting to go to different Dentists and Dental surgery specialists who charge you outrageous money and bill you behind your back. NOT Tajik’s office! Total integrity! Thank you Dr Tajik and your amazing Angel team. I am so grateful it is hard to put into words! See you soon!

Govind R. from Echo Park, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I could not have been happier with my experience here. Dr. Kasra did a phenomenal job repairing my chipped front teeth. He addressed all of my questions and concerns beforehand, something that is very rare in the world of dentistry, and he really took the time and care to do an incredible job on the cosmetic work I had done. The office staff was also very thoughtful and helpful, making sure that my teeth are in good health and I’m educated on what I need in the future. I’m happy to have found my new dentist.

Therese B. from Magnolia Park, Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is without a doubt the most important review I have ever written. I have had a fear of dentists for 15 years. I mean intense phobia. I have been having a really bad toothache for weeks now. I went and visited Dr. Tajik and his amazing staff. They could not have been kinder. However, I made 2 appointments and bailed on both of them. Well, to day at work, I am a teacher, I bit into a walnut bread..the pain was beyond excruciating. The tooth crack leaving the nerve exposed. I have never, I mean never felt pain like this. It was like someone was sticking the drill in your mouth hitting the nerve. I could not walk or talk. I called my husband and he drove me directly toModern Smiles. No appointment nothing. I was in a ball sobbing. Dr. TAJIK took me in and immediately numbed my mouth. It was heaven. I needed a root canal ASAP. He was booked up but skipped his lunch to take care of me. On top of that, he said to come in every 2 hours if I needed to be numbed again. Then…the root canal. You do not understand my level of fear. Guess What? Not one single ounce of pain. He is amazing. The oral hygienestwas amazing, the front desk was amazing. I came out dancing! Now I can get all my teeth done . This has been a crippling fear, I mean crippling! I never thought this was possible. Big fat hugs to all of you. My entire family is now your clients. T

When I walked into Dr. Kusdon’s office, I needed a ton of expensive and invasive care done. I was full of fear and anxiety about both the cost and the procedures. I will not even be able to put into words the kind, compassionate and informative care I received from every single person in his office. My on going experience with this office and the extraordinary, over the top care I receive here blows my mind. I’m so grateful to have found a dentist and staff that is the best in their field and the best kind of people one could ask for to care for them.

I have been coming to this dentist for as long as i can remember. I can honestly say that every single visit is very welcoming and efficient. Every single staff member is nice, attentive, and personable. They always explain what your procedure will entail, and if anything is wrong/unsatisfactory their more than happy to make any adjustments to perfect your experience. I live in bakersfield and make the drive every single time i have an appointment just because i know i wont be dissapointed in my experience. Overall would recommend to any one and everyone!!!!

Barbara W. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I inherited Dr. Kaz from Dr.Kosdan Sr. and Jr!  I really was hesitant about the transfer and didn’t know what to expect after being with the Kosdans for so long.  I was first introduced to Dr. Kaz through Dr. Kosdan and thereafter Dr. Kaz cleaned my teeth.  He was the best!  He has introduced me to procedures ad treatments I never heard of.  Yesterday he not only cleaned my teeth again, but he cleaned my son’s teeth as well.  Great personality, easy on the eyes and all should give him a try!!

Alma A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would give Dr. Tajik more than 5 stars if I could. Along with great care and expertise, he also has an exceptional staff. I met Dr. Tajik when he was a student at USC School of Dentistry. I was his first patient during that time and continued to be loyal to him all these years. He’s an amazing dentist that takes his patients seriously. Over the years he has done amazing work on me and still is….I can’t stop looking at my teeth on how pretty they look. Definitely recommend Modern Smiles!!!

Tyler M. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great! I moved to LA about a year and a half ago and saught a new, regular dentist in Modern Smiles. I have not been disappointed yet. Younger staff than I have experienced at other dentists (not that it matters, but some people may assume age equates experience), but they are all knowledgeable, nice, comforting, understanding, helpful, and skilled at what they do! They have lots of technology in their office too, which makes for a more informative appointment in my experience.

Denise B. from Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kaz and his team are amazing. They are professional, honest, down to earth, and up with the times of modern dentistry. 3d mouth scans? Heck ya! No more barbaric dentists for me! I’ve seen the light! Seriously though I’ve been going to this dentist for many years and I wouldn’t trust anyone else with my dental work, and believe me it’s a lot of work! I feel very comfortable knowing they are recommending the best treatments for me and that they are not trying to oversell me on things I don’t need. I’m finishing up my Invisalign treatments and I couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome and with the entire process. Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be avoided anymore! Go see Dr. Kaz

It had been years since I’ve been to a dentist because of a past terrible experience, so when I broke my tooth I was terrified because I knew the dreaded day had come that I needed to return to the dental office. So I had asked a friend and she recommended Dr. Kasra Tajik so i gave this office a try when I first walked in it was a warm and friendly environment after just a few minutes I was called back Dr. Tajik came in and explained my option in words I could understand and was very gentle and explained everything he would be doing because I had told him about my fear. Glad to say I have found my new forever dental office and I am extremely happy with my new crown!

Dr. Kosdon is the best Dentist I have every had. Upon my return from living in the UK for a few years my whole mouth was a complete mess. He sorted me right out and 3 years later and a set a vaneers I am beautiful now. His entire staff all work together as a team to make you feel very welcome. Simply put this man is an artist when it comes to your teeth. Even cleanings are done very well and I was a difficult patient as I have no pain tolerance. Everything he promised was delivered. He is so good that I continue to drive from Orange County to see him. I want to thank him and his entire staff for really caring about my well being. I want to personally thank Dr. Kosdon as well, because the girl who stares back at me in the mirror smiles whole lot more now! Someone else posted any reviews with 5 stars is fake. This certainly is not a FAKE Review. It took this man 2 1/2 years to get my mouth sorted out after living in that horrible country. I thought for sure I would end up in dentures at my young age. Not the case, my gums are healthy now, and I smile bigger than I ever have.

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


As a child I have ALWAYS looked at teeth. Someone who prides their smile is attentive to detail…….That is exactly the service/care I received at Dr. Kosdon’s. Initially I just went in for my routine cleaning but hoping to establish a new relationship with a dentist in Los Angeles. Quite honestly I wasn’t sure I’d stay with Dr. Kosdon permanently. I have seen my childhood dentist for most of my life. However, it was time to go BIG!!! Dr. Kosdon was highly recommended and well known for his experience in Cosmetic dentistry-a few well know celebrity smiles helped! I was looking for a dentist with a cutting edge approach, someone who was going to provide top quality service without compromising care. Braces as a kid fixed my crowding but now was in search for a top notch smile. Although I had some questionable, old school dental work in my mouth, he never made me feel ashamed of it. Instead he listened to my concerns and long term goals, took xrays and a bunch of pics of all areas of my mouth. More than I’d like to see! But it totally assisted me in choosing to do a full mouth lift-that’s what I call it! Laura has hands down given me the most thorough cleaning. His clinical staff was very knowledgeable-not robotic and Judy was extremely helpful and went above and beyond in making this all happen. I am THRILLED with my new smile and appreciate the detail that went into creating it. Look out 2013 I’ve just made my best investment!!! Dr. Kosdon you have a patient for life.

Melissa S. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this office by a friend. She has been a patient of Dr. Tajik since he was in dentistry school at USC, so i trusted her judgement. I came in for a cavity, but was diagnosed with multiple cavities. I had not been to a dentist in about 10 years, because of prior bad experiences. I was scared, nervous, and anxious for my first visit! Dr. Tajik saw me and started a treatment plan to help me get back to a healthy smile. After my first visit I knew it was going to be a long process but i was confident in the treatment i would receive. Unfortunately i was not assigned to Dr. Tajik but I was assigned to Dr. Shahira and I couldn’t be any happier! I love her! I have completed 3 of 4 visits and i couldn’t be happier. Dr. Shahira and all the staff at modern smiles have been so patient and amazing. Dr. Shahira is so gentle and understands the fear i have every time i go in for an appointment. She is always asking how I’m feeling during my procedures and makes me feel very comfortable. I would highly recommend Modern Smiles to anyone as all the staff and Dr.’s are very nice and gentle. Take the word from someone who had not been to a dentist in 10 years because of prior trauma. Modern Smiles is amazing!!!!

I had such a a great experience here as a first timer!! This was my first time doing gum contouring and it was awesome. Completely painless, great results, great price, I loved the results. Super excited for the free touch up they include and to see the wonderful staff again! Dr. Saad was  the wonderful girl who did my gum contour, check her out 🙂

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


I love this dental office. I’ve never had a dental office treat me so well before! The staff and Dr. Tajik have always been super friendly and amazing. Going to the dentist is one of my least favorite things to do, but I’ve always felt at ease and comfortable with them. They’ve always gone above and beyond to explain any procedures with me and to make sure all of my questions and concerns were remedied. I highly recommend them and will continue to be a longstanding patient.

Lenno R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kas is heaven sent! This whole experience has been a blessing. The entire staff is extremely kind and caring. I came in with not an overbite nor an underbite but with an interference in my front teeth when I bite. The interference caused my tooth to chip off. The Invisalign program under Dr. Kas’s care completely corrected my bite and restored my face with a beautiful modern smile!!! I’m speechless. I never would have imagined myself being so full of joy and satisfaction with any dentist.  Period. But this dentist office is a gem and I highly highly highly recommend them for ANY dental issues you may have. Give them a call right away and get in there as soon as possible and give yourself the smile you deserve.
