Dr. Laura & Staff are absolutely WONDERFUL!  Every appointment has been a delight from the check-ins & friendly chats with Lisa & Alexa (at the front desk), to a thorough cleaning by Shelley, my hygienist.  I leave smiling after each visit. I recommend making your next appointment prior to your departure, as appointments fill-up fast and it’s obvious why; they are great!  I appreciate the attention they give me and my many questions.. 🙂  They are helpful and diligent; they know their stuff.

Brian Q. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Laura and her staff for almost two years and couldn’t be happier with their services.  Every time I’ve walked through the door, i’m always greeted by the staff with smiles and warm welcomes. The wait is never long and they’re work is quick and precise.  I’ve never had any issues whatsoever.  My teeth were in rough shape when I started seeing them, but now they are the healthiest they’ve ever been and its because of Dr. Laura and her team.

Wendy P. from Buena Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Manuel and her staff have, by far, created the most professional, gentle, and welcoming dental office my family and I have EVER been to! It is a pleasure to go into the office, see the staff’s smiling faces and know that our visit will be a positive experience, no matter the procedure being done.  My family and I will forever be patients with Dr. Manuel.

When my dentist of 20+ years abruptly retired 2 years ago, I was referred to Dr. Manuel by a friend and while apprehensive, I went for a routine appointment and found myself very comfortable immediately. The staff, and Dr. Manuel, are friendly and professional , whether it be a teeth cleaning, filling or crown. I’m happy to recommend her to anyone who is looking for dental services!

Dr. Manuel has it all. The office is comfortable. The staff is friendly and efficient. She is very knowledgeable and communicates in a very informative and respectful manner. I always feel as if my interests come first when receiving care by Dr. Manuel or her staff. The office provides friendly reminders of appointments.

Thanks dr Laura and staf

Stephanie L. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE this office. I’ve honestly never met an entire staff that is as sweet and welcoming as this crew. They make coming to the dentist fun. Dr. Manuel is so down to earth and awesome as well. I still don’t like getting my teeth cleaned, but they make it a lot easier. My husband enjoys the office too

Martin B. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Laura’s office in Naples for a couple of years now and………. she is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had!! I use to be the guy who dreaded going to the dentist and my teeth suffered because of it. Now, I find myself going in on days when I’m not even scheduled because the staff is so amazingly friendly. The office as a whole is what makes the experience so great. Also, for someone who has a busy and often unpredictable schedule, they are beyond accommodating and understanding! I highly recommend Dr. Laura and her amazing staff if you’re looking for a new dentist!

Shawn H. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


First off, may I say going to the dentist is a total phobia for me. I discovered Dr. Laura and her staff and am so glad I did. The moment I walked in the door I was made to feel welcome and comfortable. I was greeted and taken back by Ashley who did my X-rays. I have a trigger gag reflex and Ashley was awesome. She actually had someone else snap the X-ray so she could immediately remove the apparatus rather than have to walk back in (it was only about 3 feet but it made a tremendous difference). THAT is not only great customer service, it is amazing compassion. Dr Laura immediately put me at ease. Dr. Laura is engaging, friendly and a fantastic and very knowledgeable dentist. She explained my options and came with treatment plan. If you are looking for the most amazing dentist and staff ever, look no further than Dr. Laura and her awesome staff.

Heather M. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


She couldn’t be more wonderful. Really. I was referred by a great friend who needs a lot of cosmetic work, and I do as well. I tried her out with a small crown fix–and she completely blew me out of the park with her perfection. If you don’t see her, you’re truly missing out.

W. W. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


My friend broke his front teeth and went to her to fix them and she did a wonderful job as the veneers look so natural.   When my dentist retired I went to Dr. Manuel to fix my front tooth where the bonding was chipping and she did excellent work. My old dentist suggested 10k in veneers and Dr. Manuel said that I have good teeth and suggested invisilign and bleaching instead of veneers which is half the cost of what my old dentist suggested.   You can see she cares more about your teeth and health than profiting off her patients.  Her staff are all caring and knowledgeable and seem happy in their jobs.  I highly recommend Dr. Manuel.

Rachel R. from California (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Laura for about 9 years now, her and her staff are professional, friendly and accommodating. It’s nice to have a dentist that really cares about her patients. There are many times that I need early appointments because of my work schedule and there is never an issue in fitting me in at the crack of dawn. Their work is top notch and they have fixed my all of the dental issues that I’ve had. I couldn’t recommend them more!

Ingrid P. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is one of the best dentist experiences I have had in my life. Everyone at Dr. Manuel’s office is very friendly and knowledgeable. This was my first visit here and I am happy to announce that this will be my dentist as long as I live in LA. I felt safe the whole time and very well treated. I also got a nice little “goodie-bag” with samples for my specific needs. Will recommend!

John M. from Vero Beach, FL (Source: Yelp)


It had been a while since I’d been to Naples Dentistry, and I recently paid a return visit to address a pain issue.  Dr. Manuel has added an associate, Dr. William Grella, whom I saw.  Staff was friendly, and Dr. Grella gave me the advice I needed.  His knowledge and integrity are most impressive.  He is a great addition to an already splendid practice.

Aly S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t know why this is listed as Manuel Laura… Her name is Laura Manuel. This is the best dental experience I’ve ever had. Dr. Manuel is really down to earth and easy to talk to, as is the rest of the staff. Everyone is very sweet and I like that all of the dental stations seem more open. Basically instead of separate rooms, there are partitions separating each chair. This may not be everyone’s cup of tea if they want total privacy, but I personally really love it. Dr. Manuel and all her staff is amazing and I am so glad I was referred to her by my coworkers.

This whole office is wonderful. I came in very timid about my dental work- the entire team was nothing but accommodating. The office is pristine and everyone is very professional. They have great dental plans that show you your path, diagrams, etc. They are great at reminding you of your appointments as well (text, email, and phone call). I recently had to get some cavities filled and the experience (which is usually horrifying to me) was nothing but pleasant. The team was talking me through the whole procedure and were very sweet. Dr. Manuel referred me to another doctor for my wisdom teeth removal and he was wonderful as well! I love Dr. Manuel and her entire team!

June Y. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Hands down. The BEST dentist I’ve ever been to. That’s saying a lot. I’ve had my teeth drilled, pulled, capped, and other unmentionable cruelty happened to them – and I can’t recall ever having a bad experience here. Dr. Manuel is professional, attentive, and efficient. The office is small and intimate, which is very welcoming. Not only is it her, but the entire staff are the same way – gentle, attentive, and very very good at what they do. Can’t say enough good stuff about this place. :0) I especially dig the tranquil scenery panel that’s placed above each of the examination chairs so that when you’re looking up, you’re not staring at a piece of drop-ceiling. haha

Tiffany G. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Another Yelp review I am catching up on, and just have to say that Dr. Manuel is by far the very BEST dentist I have EVER been to. The staff is on top of everything, helpful, and kind, on the ball all the way. the place is clean as can be and there have been some dentist’s office I have literally gotten out of the chair and left due to the filth of the office or some I have never returned to simply because the dental assistant kept cross contaminating everything…Just because they have a license on the wall doesn’t always mean the care or are even clean Dr. Manuel and the staff there never cease to continuously impress me. I always feel at ease and relaxed knowing my teeth are in good hands.

My dentist retired so I asked my friend what dentist he went to and he recommended Dr. Manuel. She fixed his front teeth after they broke and they look so natural. I had no idea he had veneers. I went to Dr. Manuel to fix my front tooth where the bonding was chipped and she did an excellent job. My previous dentist had suggested 10k worth of veneers but Dr. Manuel said that I have great teeth and shouldn’t ruin them with veneers. She suggested invisilign and bleaching which is half of the cost of veneers. I am so happy I found her! Also, she has a wonderful staff of smart and genuinely nice people that seem happy in their work. Her office is a little far for me but totally worth the drive for a top dentist that cares more about your teeth and health than profiting off her patients. I highly recommend!

D. S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Laura is the best.   I knew her back in the days of her advanced residency training, and even then, her work was incredible!  Great interpersonal skills, dental technique second to none and attention to the smallest details in all aspects of the appointment.  If you’re looking for a dentist in the Long Beach area,  your search is over.   As a medical professional, I give Dr Laura the highest possible recommendation.  More than anything, she’s just a great person.

Don K. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


About a year ago the fake teeth I had in the front of my mouth for nine years began to loosen, as I had outgrown them. When I began to slightly panic, I frantically searched the internet for a reliable dentist in Long Beach. On every list I scanned, Laura Manuel, DDS – Rosedale had unanimously strong reviews and several mentions of an award. Upon arrival, I was greeted with smiles, confidence and an immediate plan to fix my mouth properly in the shortest time-period possible, with an emphasis on longevity and aesthetics. Every visit to the office was quick and efficient, but still felt as if everyone’s full attention and care was focused on me until I left. The skill and precision displayed by both Dr. Laura and Dr. Will was, in my opinion, unparalleled by past experiences in my life. Replacing the front teeth of one’s mouth can be nerve-wracking to say the least, but I was always reassured by the knowledge and moral support from every staff member there. I now have a fantastic set of permanent teeth which I could not be happier with, and it is all thanks to everyone at Laura Manuel, DDS – Rose dale. I couldn’t be happier with my overall experience and I eagerly anticipate future visits (which I never expected to say about a dentist office!). I urge anyone searching for a dentist in Long Beach to end their search now and head straight to Laura Manuel, DDS.

Rod B. from Huntington Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Laura is the best! She’s very knowledgeable and has a great bedside manor. Lots of technology in the office (def not an old school dentist). The front desk staff is always a pleasure to deal with. They have made a lot of improvements to handle the Covid thing effectively. I have friends that have gone to Dr Laura for years and they finally got me to switch over to her. Glad I did. Hope you do the same.

Christina E. Gentilini (Source: Facebook)


I started going to this practice back when Dr. Lander owned it. I loved it then and have been so extremely happy with Dr. Manuel’s care since she took over. She has great “bedside manner” and has even has made my extremely dentist-phobic husband (he had some very bad experiences as a kid) comfortable going in for his appointments. I can’t recommend her and her practice enough!

Cambria H. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had a wonderful first experience here.  I had been dreading a long overdue visit to the dentist for years.   The facilities are lovely, the tech state of the art, the wait time was nothing.  Dr. Manuel was kind and thorough as were her staff.  Lisa Marie and Shannen took great care of me.  I dare say I am looking forward to my next appointment.

Monica D. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Laura for about a year and I love it! The staff is amazing and everyone is extremely nice and professional. I received Invisalign treatment along with regular cleanings and have never had to wait more than 5 minutes when I get into the office. I’m greeted warmly and almost immediately escorted to the station. Dr. Will is awesome too! My husband, who HATES going to the dentist, had a great experience with Dr. Will and doesn’t mind going to his regular cleanings (which is a big deal). I’m really happy with this office and refer Dr. Laura and her team to everyone I know.

I don’t even know where to begin with my review of Dr. Manuel and her team other than to say that I absolutely ADORE them. I needed an extensive amount of dental work when I relocated to Long Beach, and I’m so incredibly fortunate that my co-worker recommended Dr. Manuels’ office. My co-worker boasted about how amazing they are, but based on prior dental experiences, I was skeptical. In previous dental experiences, I was treated like a number, shamed by the doctors about my teeth, and the dentists always tried to upsell me a new product. I showed up to Dr. Manuels’ office feeling nervous and embarrassed, but I was immediately put at ease. Besides the fact that her office is beautiful and accommodating, each member of her team possesses a warm, friendly demeanor, and they all have a great sense of humor. Dr. Manuel and her team are absolute professionals, dedicated to performing the absolute highest quality work, while also establishing relationships with their patients. I love that they are perfectionists and they never let me settle for anything less than their very best work. They demonstrate integrity, compassion, and regardless of what I was in for during each visit, I never dreaded going. Who knew going to the dentist could be so damn pleasant!? 🙂 I’d gone through the majority of my life never being able to smile, or covering my mouth when I did. After my dental work, I had to teach myself how to smile without covering it. With my new smile also came a newfound confidence that I attribute to their amazing work. Thank you Dr. Manuel and your team, you have undoubtedly changed my life. I am forever grateful.

Absolutely HAPPY camper here !!!!!! Today was my 3 visit to Dr Laura’s office My first thought was super friendly and really clean ( good signs). Her front seat staff is professional and helpful answering many questions , making sure I felt safe and welcome. ( relaxing waiting area ) The only thing I noticed was that every client received the same level of care . I’ve gotten my teeth cleaned twice before here and enjoyed the care every time . Today was my first time getting some intense work done and DR Laura and her staff had me so relaxed and taken care of. I didn’t feel a thing. Her patience and love for her craft was felt in everyone little application to my teeth . She has a gentle but intention touch . I knew I was in good handles. I am grateful to a great team of professionals this is Dr Laura team… I look forward to our next visit ! (Weird that I enjoy the Dentist ) You will too !!!

Jennifer T. from Washington, DC (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Manuel for a few years now and I would refer any loved on to this office. The staff are always professional and they run an efficient system. I have had many dentists and have experienced other competent services and also have had dental traumas (burns from chemicals, dry socket) and it has been hard for me to find someone I trust to take care of my dental needs. I am so relieved to have found this office. They are very personable and you feel welcomed each time.

John S. from Westlake Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


Are you looking for a dentist where you feel cared for and without that stereotypical fear of going to the dentist? This is the place. Dr. Laura and her staff are extremely pleasant and professional. They use modern technology to make the X-rays and cleaning as comfortable as possible. They are the rockstars of dentistry, so you do need to make your appointments well in advance, but it is worth it for the care you will receive.

Stephen M. from Lake Forest, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for the last two years and I can’t thank them enough for taking such great care of me every time I come in! They provide hands down the best service in town. They really take the time to explain everything that is going on and make sure you’re as comfortable as possible. I would highly recommend them to my family and friends. Thanks again guys!

Mari B. from Franklin, TN (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for years! Dr. Manuel is an awesome dentist. She’s personable and very attentive. Great work and doesn’t do any unnecessary procedures or work. Her staff is great as well! Everyone is always willing to assist you and make your visit enjoyable.

Nicole L. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live 45 minutes from Dr Laura and her practice but I love her and her staff so much that I’m willing to make the drive twice a year. I purposely opt in for the PPO insurance plan at my work so I can continue to see her and my favorite hygienist Joanne. They are the best around. Dr Laura is very honest and thorough. It feels like family when you walk in and she treats her patients with the same respect. I enjoy chatting with the staff when I come in, they’re always so welcoming.

Ashley G. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


6 stars! 10 stars! However many needed to drive home the point that this is the best dental practice I’ve ever been to. The facility is clean, modern and fresh, not like the stale and sterile vibe most offices give off. The staff is all friendly, personable and seem to actually care about what they do. Dr. Manuel is bright and genuine, so much more approachable than any of the stiff physicians I’ve encountered in the past. I’ve had problems with getting ‘sold’ procedures by previous doctors and Dr. Manuel actually recommended against what she explained as an unnecessary (and pricey) one. A dentist who doesn’t operate a practice like a shady auto shop? How refreshing!

This place is AWESOME!! High Tech Dental Office! Super professional yet friendly staff. Dr. Laura is just great! When i arrived I had many teeth issues. She did a great job of identifying specific issues to address and help me to prioritize them and slowly knock them off our list. I highly recommend this place. Two thumbs UP!

Marcus C. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is amazing. I’ve been going to this office for 3 years or more maybe and as reluctant as I am to go to the dentist from severe anxiety over the years and past experiences I can say this office has turned it around. Took 15 plus years to find them but I’m glad I was given the referral. I am grateful to this staff. The front office staff are so friendly, conversational, and super pleasant even in the early morning. It puts me at ease! Joanne is extremely nice and remembers every detail you tell her even years prior. Dr. Manuel was great and though I don’t see her much, Dr. Grella is what prompted this Yelp review. He walks you through each step which is what I appreciated the most. I love this office and recommend this to anyone looking for great dental care!
