If I could give this office 10 stars I would! Everyone in the office is so friendly and so willing to answer all of your questions. But most of all COMPETENT! I had a wisdom tooth that started hurting. My mother had a tooth pulled here a couple of years ago and I remembered it being a pleasant experience. So I decided to go. The doctor and the assistant were really able to communicate with me through the whole thing and were quick and efficient. The whole process of pulling out the tooth including the novicane was 40 mins! And the best part is I had absolutely no pain after the novicane wore off at all. And they go above and beyond and give you a free post operation visit to make sure it’s healing properly.  I couldn’t recommend this office more, it made something that I was dreading for years and thought was going to be horrible experience, into something easy and painless. I can’t thank all of you enough!!

Although I was originally scheduled only for a single cavity filling, Dr. Sahakyan was happy to perform my two other cavity fillings and a teeth cleaning since her later appointment had been cancelled. Additionally, she was very communicative about what she was performing on me to ensure I would experience minimal pain and was well informed about all the necessary steps being taken. Thanks for a great experience!

Today was our first experience in My Dentist, with Dr. Sahakyan and everything was just perfect. Dr was so patient and kind with my 6yo son. Kids will never be scared to see a dentist, if they met Dr Sahakyan)) Staff was amazing, too. They scheduled us very easy and quickly. Thank you everyone! We’ll come back, again!

Jamil G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stella & Dr. George are very kind and professional dentists. They and their staff are very accommodating with schedules and make sure to keep me fully aware of my options. Even though I originally started with Dr. Lin & Dr. Lu, I feel that their family left the practice in great hands.

My Dentist Burbank is located on Riverside bld. in Burbank. The dentist and the dental staff are very nice and knowledgeable. I went there for a root canal and cleaning. Kimberly the dental hygienist was so nice to me when cleaning teeth. They told me, because I drink too much coffee I need to do cleaning more often. So I go to one of their offices every 4 months. It is so nice to be back at the My Dentist Burbank and see the best dental team again.

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


Ive been in so much pain for months now because of my wisdom teeth and I had difficulty finding a dentist I trust. I heard so many amazing things about Dr. Sahakyan, I made an appt with him within a day, and the following morning he squeezed me in for surgery! I didn’t feel a single thing and I recovered within a day.  The entire staff is extremely caring and sweet, and they made me feel very comfortable right away. I am SO impressed with how amazing this experience went and I’m finally pain free! Thank you so much Dr. Sahakyan and the entire staff.

Bruce L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been coming to this office for years when when in December 2017 my previous Dentist in this office was was in an accident and did not survive. The office finally found Dr. Sahakyan to take over the practice and I decided to give them a shot. I have been coming here for all my appointments since then and have always been treated in a timely and professional way. I don’t have dental insurance and have to pay 100% of the costs to find his prices reasonable I recommend My Dentist Burbank Dr. Sahakyan and his staff are outstanding.

Elizabeth M. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I highly recommend My Dentist Burbank!!! Dr. Sahakyan and his staff are wonderful! The staff is always friendly and accommodating, my appts always start on time and Dr. Sahakyan is very professional, trustworthy and knowledgeable!

If you look a dentist in Burbank, then look no further. Dr. Sahakyan has a new office in Burbank. It is located next to the freeway. Dr. and his great stuff were so helpful when treating my crooked teeth. I got Invisalign and am proud of my smile now.

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


Dr. George from Smile Makeover of LA was my 1st dentist here in USA since I came from the Philippines and I wasn’t seeing a regular dentist back there my teeth needed a lot of work. When we schedule a consultation Dr. George and the Team are so professional and friendly. He explained everything and he give us choices and inform us what’s gonna happened and the cost. I got braces, implants and bridges, so I was seeing them for I think 3 years if I’m not mistaken and they take care of me all those years. Miss Tanya is my orthodontist who take care of my braces, She is so sweet and nice and Miss Rita also take care of me during my visits who is so professional and lovely, Miss Mildred at the front desk always welcome me with a big smile every time I come and visit, she take care of the schedule of my visit. The waiting time is 5min.max, most of the time no waiting. I’m so lucky that I found them and trusted my Oral needs. My family, friends and workmates are also a patient of Dr. George/Smile Makeover of LA. I got my Beautiful Smile now. I still have my retainers on and we move to Bay Area now I’m still planning to go back to LA just to have my Oral needs done with them. Thank you Dr. George and Team Of Smile Makeover of LA for taking care of me and my friends and family. I miss you and I definitely recommend you guys for a job well done . Keep it up.

Dr. Sahakyan is a great dentist and is also so great with children. My son goes in for his checkups & cleanings with no fear or apprehension. Mildred his administrator/receptionist is always so helpful and patient with my scheduling and the staff are all nice and welcoming. I usually only do x rays if they’re absolutely needed and avoid drugs whenever possible and he is always respectful of my views despite being a conventional dentist. He took protective protocol to replace an amalgam filling with porcelain and I felt safe getting the procedure done & I had no issues after the replacement. (I had a previous experience with another dentist years ago who was going to replace an amalgam filling with no dam or protection whatsoever, I actually had to ask for a dental dam.) He also was respectful when I declined Novocaine for a small filling. I could tell he preferred to do novocaine but he didn’t pressure me or belittle my choice. He did the filling so artfully that I was surprised how minimal the pain was.

Corey D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Dr. Sahakyan for a little over a year now. Recently I came in after sustaining a injury at work. I fell square on my jaw and was in significant pain whenever I’d try to eat. Dr. Sahakyan informed me I may need to have a few root canals but he had an idea to help alleviate that. Essentially, they shimmed my back teeth so when I bit down, contact wouldn’t be made on my front teeth. It worked great, my teeth has strengthened up and I’m no longer looking at 4-6 root canals. Highly recommend this office and the work the provide. Caring, friendly, and diligent.

Dr. George is a fantastic dentist! He explains everything and calms me down. This is so important because I have a ton of anxiety about my teeth. If he knows he isn’t the best dentist for the job, he refers me to the other dentist at his practice. She is also a fantastic dentist and happens to be his sister. I feel very at ease when I go in for anything because I know they know how to handle anxious patients like myself. The office staff and support staff is also excellent!

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


If you want a doctor and a staff that really cares for their patients, visit Smile Makeover of LA. I actually found Dr. Sahakyan through Yelp in March 2015, and now I am finalizing the completion of my implants and feel that it has been a year of amazing service. I had quite a few procedures done four fillings, 1 cleaning, and two implants, all executed quickly and and with the utmost care. I am a freelancer so dental insurance is not in my range, but with the help of their staff I was able to find a payment option that worked for me. Dental work is in itself costly, but once you find a doctor who cares and makes you feel comfortable, it is all worth it. And shout out to the ladies of Smile Makeover! Mildred, Rita, and Laura you guys are gems. Thank you!

I’m so glad i found this dentist, unfortunately had several bad experience through my life, had braces twice before. Dr George is an awesome guy, he is honest, listens, explained thoroughly everything, doing my invisalign treatment there, highly recommend to anyone !

Christine N. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got moved over here from the dental office in Glendale and their employees are just as nice and welcoming! Everyone is so kind and flexible, not to mention their handiwork. Their team is hard working and I came in and out of here in less than an hour! The lady that worked on my teeth gave me great tips and was very informative on what I should do to keep everything tidy. It was a great transition between the two offices.

Steve F. (Source: Zocdoc)


The doctor and the entire staff are first rate. Due to a change in our dental insurance, I searched for a dentist that was on the new plan and found Dr. Sahakyan around 18 months ago. I have since referred my wife, daughter and several friends and everyone has been happy with the choice. Everyone in the office is friendly, respectful and efficient. The dentist keeps me informed about my dental health, possible developing issues and how best to avoid problems, but does not urge treatment beyond what is indicated at the time. This is a great office.

Elizaveta Z. from Hidden Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Doctor Sahakyan is super detailed and caring dentist. He replaced my old crown and I cannot be any happier with a smooth process and a great looking result! I have been a patient of his Glendale office but recently attended this location due to my work schedule. The staff is as nice and accommodating and managed to fit my appointment to get things done at the soonest. Highly recommend this clinic!

Diana A. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Sahakyan is the best dentist I’ve ever been to. I don’t know anyone that looks forward to seeing the dentist, I personally dread it each time.  After my recent experience with him I would trust him fully and not drag out coming back when needed. I recently switched to him after a pretty bad experience with my last lower wisdom tooth removal, it caused me to wait years before taking out the other one. I just my extraction done early this AM and he is my far the most skilled and patient DDS ever!!! Dr Sahakyan stopped MULTIPLE times throughout my extraction just giving me time to stay relaxed and have a break. I had ZERO pain both with the numbing process or extraction,  he took my tooth out in one piece, so skilled. I had my consult in Glendale and extraction in Burbank and his entire  staff at both offices were always welcoming and kind. It is evident they take the cleanliness and hygiene very seriously ESPECIALLY due to covid and it was clear they are taking every precaution possible and then some when treating patients. I literally worked myself up over nothing. Thank you Dr Sahakyan and staff for the best experience I’ve EVER had at a dental office, I’ll be back for a cleaning soon.

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


My braces treatment is done and I couldn’t be happier! I’ve never been more confident with my smile. Thank you sooo much to Dr. George for taking good care of my teeth, as well as Tanya, Mildred, Rita and all the staff who were always the absolute nicest! I have now recommended them to my mom (who’s had horrible dental work/experiences in the past) and she sincerely loves them! If you’re looking for trustworthy orthodontics treatment/dentist, I highly recommend Smile Makeover of LA 🙂

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


Dr. Sahakyan and everyone in his office are fantastic! I went to several orthodontists and each one was quick to run down the price and then quickly leave the room. Dr. Sahakyan sat with me and explained all of my options clearly and concisely. He is very kind and he really cares about each and every patient. He was very meticulous and worked very hard to make sure my teeth were perfect and this would be a long term permanent solution. Everyone in the offices is so fantastic and even though I was very picky with my teeth (as I’m sure most of us are) they worked with me with courtesy and joy. It really was a pleasure to go in and see the dentist, and it made overall experience so great. They really take care of you here. Pro tip: there’s parking in the back.

Weng C. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommended. All staff are good very accomodating. The Doctor is excellent, making his patient relax during treatment. I had a very good experience in my dental procedure same with my children. They have modern equipment too.

The most painless experience I’ve ever had at a dentist was at My Dentist Burbank. Everyone was very nice and helpful. They didn’t keep me waiting. I went in for a cleaning. Dentist took a look to make sure they gave me all the information. I will be visiting again for all my cleanups. Highly recommend.

Bonnie F. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been terrified of going to the dentist, since I can remember I’d always be crying and hiding behind doors trying to get avoid any kind of dental work lol I’ve been coming to see Dr. George for about 5 years now, I’ve never had a dentist that makes me feel so at ease! He’s gentle and always explains what he’s going to do before doing it. Mildred is amazing, she always takes care of me and my appointments and my insurance and everything! Rita is also wonderful! She finishes up my cleaning and is also really gentle and thorough. If you’re looking for the best dental team, look no more! You won’t be disappointed!

Stacey A. from Sunland-Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Second visit and it was great again! Both the hygienist and the Dr. Each was different from last visit as I kept forgetting to make an appt so took whoever was available soonest. However, it’s comforting to know that there’s flexibility with who I see and know that I will receive great care from both Doctors and their hygienists. Each hygienist I’ve seen had a great touch and skillset. I should note I’d been coming to this office for 17 years when the husband/wife team were in a tragic accident and did not survive. I absolutely adored Dr. Lu as a person and as a dentist so I was very skeptical for whoever would follow her, but I’ve been very happy with both of the Drs that have continued the practice. What a huge relief!

Sherry L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Sahakyan was very patient with my mom for replacing her front tooth crown. My mom didn’t speak English and I was not with her, so Dr Sahakyan and his nurses was patiently FaceTime with me for the interpretation. Highly recommend this doctor and his office.

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


Dr. George Sahakyan is truly incredible! I would give an infinity amount of stars if this app allowed it! Not only did he make me feel super comfortable, he also worked with me financially. I was so frightened to get the work I needed done & his office took me right away during a dental emergency. I was in so much pain & he helped me immediately. I am now no longer afraid & I truly consider Dr. Sahakyan & his family friends! He actually cares about my teeth & his work and does such a wonderful job that there are never any continuing problems like I previously had going to my previous dentist. To Dr. Sahakyan this is more than just a business & it’s difficult to find people who truly care about your well being nowadays. I’m truly grateful to have met him & his practice! Thank you so much for your love & care!!

This is great place to get my teeth taken care. Dr. Stella is very professional and efficient in her work, as well as very thorough. I have gotten teeth cleaned, fillings and had a crown replaced, as the old one needed replacing. Dr. Stella and Rita work well together and are very knowledgeable on taking care of one’s teeth. Scheduling is very easy, as well as payment plans for those “bigger” dental handlings. I am very happy with their service and highly recommend their services to anyone that want’s top personal care for their teeth.

Dr. Sahakyan was a fantastic dentist during my two visits for a deep cleaning and fillings. I’m embarrassed to say it had been way too long since I last visited the dentist, but the doctor put me at ease right away and provided me with some excellent dental care. He took time to explain what I needed and why, and during the procedures, he and his excellent staff treated me very well, even though I was a bit nervous about getting local anesthesia, which turned out to be quick and easy. Can’t wait to go back in 4 months for a regular teeth cleaning and show them how well I’ve been flossing!

Dàra G. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sahakyan and his team are nothing short of amazing. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted with friendly faces and warm smiles by the front office ladies Mildred and Susie. And in the dental chair, I was treated with care, sincerity, and thoughtfulness by Dr. Sahakyan and his dental hygienist, Rita. I’m so glad I found them! Definitely would recommend!

One of my teeth broke while I was chewing a gum. It was so strange because I never had a pain. They showed me CEREC crown technology and explained advantages of it. The whole procedure took 2 and half our. Before I had to go 3 times for a crown. Thanks a lot. Nice front desk staff, had to wait for 3 minutes 🙂 Thanks a lot for the CEREC crown

Mari A. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m deathly terrified of going to the dentist. This was my first time at Smile Makeover and I am so happy with Dr. Gevorg Sahakyan! I needed a crown over my root canal and even though it was a long procedure, it went by so fast and painlessly! He was so patient and kind, and also his assistant Irina is amazing. When I had to keep my mouth open for what seemed like eternity, she kindly put Vaseline on my lips to keep it from being chapped. Ah the little things! Will definitely recommend to anyone. Now I’m not scared of going to the dentist. Plus he so cute.

Amazing…. Dr Sahakyan exceeds all expectations, did set such a high standard , I don’t think I’ll be able to see any other dentist ever…. my experience was so smooth , everybody are so nice and friendly , I assure you , give a shot to Dr George G Sahakyan , you’ll be hooked up good for your teeth health & your smile !!!

Irina karagyozyan (Source: Google)


Thank u Dr. Sahakyan for the great experience and quality work you have done on my teeth. He has a light touch and has a naturally lovely personality. He took the time to explain every procedure he was doing. Very reasonable prices, professional and friendly staff. I highly recommend Dr. Sahakyan to everyone.

Michael P. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been a bit nervous around dentists. However, Dr George and the wonderful staff here make me feel at ease. Dentistry has come a long way in the past 20 years, and with all of the modern conveniences combined with a kind and caring staff, I enjoy my visits now more than ever before! Highly recommended!
