Dr Neil Mcleod DDS is the best Dentist I have ever been to in my entire life. Granted I am only 26 at the moment. However, I have had my 4 wisdom teeth extracted by a horrible dentist that hurt me and created damage to my nerve in my chin 2 years ago. I had a horrible cavity that needed a root canal and when I found a female dentist I thought was gentle and non-painful, I was sadly mistaken. She performed the root canal therapy and sadly left me in extreme pain. I had to see Dr Mcleod as an emergency patient on a Sunday. Not only did he put aside his personal life to help me out and get me relief from pain but he was kind enough to do it on his day off right after a funeral. I cannot thank him enough. He relieved the pain immediately. Not only that, he TAUGHT me about my teeth, helped me to understand what was going on more than ANY other dentist had before and he was able to prescribe treatment that is helping me get better. I am now recovering from what the female dentist did when she performed my root canal (as I am still suffering from her quick patch job that left me in pain) thanks to Dr Mcleod. He has earned a client, a patient for life! I can’t wait to return. For the first time, I trust a dentist! I NEVER thought I would say that. I can’t believe how amazing he is and it shows in every aspect of what he does. He truly CARES for people and for the overall health of the individual. I LOVE his style and technique (not to mention his accent). I will continue to see him for all my treatments and cleanings. I look forward to seeing him again. If you want the best dentist ever, make an appoointment to meet him. You won’t regret it. He is simply the best. And he focuses on preventative measures to help prolong the life of the treatment received. I really appreciate that. He is different from other dentists and even if I move, I will travel just to see him for my dental work. Thank you again Dr. Mcleod! You are amazing!!! 10 STARS! Thank you, Sarah F

Mere words simply do not do justice to how wonderful Dr. McLeod is. I feel privileged to be his patient for over 20 years. Everything he does, he does right the very first time. Such passion for his work! His dentistry truly lasts a lifetime. I recently decided to have him straighten my teeth through the Invisalign system, and I could not be happier. I have a tricky bite issue, and Dr McLeod has worked tenaciously with Invisalign to give me a perfect smile and a corrected bite. Seriously, he makes you feel as if you were his only patient! His staff is incredible, friendly, always on time. I thank God that we are so blessed to have Dr. McLeod. (And his poetry is incredible…it will make you emotional!) Thank you, Dr. McLeod!

Forrest J. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


January 2018 I had a loose dental implant and had moved away from San Francisco where i’d had it done by Dr. David Blende back in 2010.  I emailed Dr. Blende there and asked for a recommendation of someone to see in L.A. He got a hold of Dr. McCleod, who personally called me right away and set it up for me to see him first thing the next morning. To remedy things took the better part of a very comfortable, pleasantly humorous, and highly informative hour.  He explains thoroughly and even offers one a mirror to watch what he is doing.  I have come away so impressed today that I have immediately sent both Drs. thanks for their respective roles and am now adding this Yelp recommendation right away. Oh. and Dr. McLeod and staff are warm and friendly and do not keep patients waiting.

How many people have the good fortune of finding pleasure in the experience of visiting a dentist?  I am one who now does.  In the time that I’ve been in Dr. McLeod’s care I’ve watched myself go from being yet another skeptical, reluctant, white-knuckled dental patient clutching the arms of the dentist’s chair, to someone who trusts and believes in the value of good dental care, someone who actually looks forward to and enjoys visiting his dentist’s office. I’ve come to feel entirely assured and confident in his professionalism. Add to this, like icing on a good cake, the comfort and ease I feel under the spell of his fine manner,  wit,  stories,  poetry,  interests and music. What a package! He is an extraordinary man and I count myself fortunate that our paths have met. So thank you very much, Dr. McLeod. It’s been an unexpectedly good experience being in your care. The work you’ve done for me, especially bringing back together in harmony no’s 8 & 9, my front teeth, has changed for the better an important piece of how I express myself in the world. I’ve checked my smile, held it back out of a twinge of self consciousness for an awfully long time.  I wasn’t terribly guarded about it, but it really had been a long held trauma. Now I catch myself smiling frequently, even just to myself, with a new found confidence thanks to his encouragement and good work.

My periodontist from Palm Desert recommended Dr. McLeod when I moved to LA five years ago, and I could not be more thrilled! Dr. McLeod is a talented cosmetic dentist and periodontist. I feel extraordinarily confident in his hands, and there is nothing I take more pride in than my smile. Dr. McLeod cares about his patients. He is extremely thorough in his examinations, has a gentle touch, and is expert in all cosmetic procedures I have undergone. Also, Dr. McLeod never pressures his patients for any dental procedures. For example, he pointed out that I have an old childhood filling that is failing, but rather than press to redo it immediately, he suggested we keep an eye on it and check it at our next appointment. He also suggested I wait to redo a very expensive retainer to see if I can get more time out of it. The icing on the cake is that I feel a sense of warmth every time I am greeted by him and his friendly staff. I could not recommend him more highly to my family, friends, and anyone looking for top notch quality dentistry in the LA area with very reasonable prices.

Dermot M. from Rancho Mirage, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. McLeod for the past 15 years, shortly after my arrival in California. In my youth, dentistry was far removed from what it is today so suffice to say I did not keep my teeth in good condition. The result was that eventually I had to have my teeth removed and dentures fitted. There is always apprehension when one hears that one needs dentures – visions of Great Aunt Mary’s teeth popping out at the dinner table came to mind! But the experience was amazing!  There was some initial pain after the extractions but it was tolerable. Then we had to “chase the dragon” as Dr. McLeod says, as the dentures settled in to my mouth and any tiny points in the denture felt like a hot needle going in to the gum (!), but he was always available at any time to fix the problem. Since that time I have continued to be a patient of Dr. McLeod and I would highly recommend him to anyone who needs any dental care whether a small procedure or, as in my case, a large one. But how would I sum up I experiences with Dr. McLeod? I think of him every time I munch on an ear of corn or an apple – and unless you have had loose teeth you just don’t know how good that is! Thank you Neil 

Lori T. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr McLeod is the best dentist I have ever had!  I spend years and a lot of money with a big name Beverly Hills dentist only to live with pain, decay and shoddy workmanship.  Yes, Dr McLeod will give you the big picture and dentistry is not cheap, but if you care about your health…not to mention your appearance, I suggest you see the best.  Dr McLeod is hands down THE BEST IN THE BUSINESS.  His staff is caring, attentive and knowledgeable.  For the first time in my life I look forward to dental cleanings and checks ups. For all the window shoppers out there looking for the cheapest price you do not belong with this gentleman, because he is an artist.  You get what you pay for in this life and thank goodness I found the best!!!

I can’t say enough about Dr. McLeod. I have had issues (putting it mildly) with my teeth all my life. I have been to so many dentists. All they ever seemed to do was take my money and leave my mouth the same or worst than when I came to them. Finally, I meet Dr. McLeod. He always did what was best for my teeth not what costs the most to fix. 20 years later, thanks to Dr. McLeod, I not only still have my teeth but I have been pain free for the first time in my life and I get complements on how beautiful my teeth are, something that eluded me until I came to Neil.

I have been seeing doctor McLeod for over 30 years. When I first walked into his office, I was deathly afraid of dentists, based on years of painful and frightening experiences with dentists. I now look forward to visits with Dr. McLeod. His work is flawless. I recently had a crown come off, so saved the crown. When Dr. McLeod cleaned off the area and looked at everything, he said he’d done such a good job in the first place (more than 20 years prior), that he could now cement this original crown in place, and off I went. His work lasts forever.

Stop looking for another dentist right now. Dr. McLeod will solve all of your problems. Well, at least those that concern your teeth. The day before New Years Eve, I chipped my front tooth more or less in half. I was in Texas flying back to LA on NYE, and I frantically called about 20 offices trying to find someone who could squeeze me in on the holiday weekend. I got off the plane and had a lovely message from Carol from Dr. McLeod’s office saying that, yes, they could take me right then and there. No other office said such a thing. I drove right over, and a couple of hours later, my tooth was as good as new. His examination of my mouth was the most thorough I’ve ever received, and the dental work was phenomenal. This man’s experience has clearly served him well. He knows what he’s doing and enjoys doing it. He truly does have a gift. I highly, highly recommend him.

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


Ten years ago, a terrible boating accident left me with an implant and two crowned teeth. I had seven dentists at that time and was terrified of sitting in that chair ever again until I met Dr. McLeod. I wanted to get my teeth replaced and whiten my smile for the past couple of years, but kept putting it off because of fear. I chose Dr. McLeod to complete this procedure because of his great reviews on Yelp, the awesome team at his office, and his trusting demeanor and positive attitude. He did not disappoint!! Dr. McLeod and his team replaced my teeth and whitened my smile within an incredibly short period of time. I am so happy with the results and would absolutely recommend him to anyone. The best dentist I have ever had, and I have had a lot.

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


One Sunday afternoon I was flossing and in an instant there went my old composite fillings.  Prior to this (for a few years) I was having issues with sensitive teeth and every time I went to the dentist they would “drill and fill” and say that “this should do it.” and if it did not, I would need one or more root canals. Nice.  Unfortunately the sensitivity never truly went away and I avoided the dentist for a 4 years.   I made the big decision to look for a new dentist.  I literally stumbled upon Dr. McLeods website and reviews and decided to call him up.   The offices are sparking clean and the equipment is state of the art. The entire staff are friendly and super knowledgable in what they do.  On the first visit Dr. McLeod meticulously looked through my mouth and teeth, noting all findings.  I needed two crowns but not a root canals because Dr. McLeod went in and removed all of the decay that other dentists had missed and just patched.  As much as i dreaded “major work” being done this ended up being no big deal! I was very comfortable through the entire procedure and after. I appreciate everything that Dr. McLeod and his staff did and they made it clear that they want each patient to keep their own teeth healthy for life.

Susan K. from Sun Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


When my childhood dentist retired, I took my time to find a new one. I found a replacement that is probably the best in the country.  I am confident to recommend my dentist, doctor Neil McLeod who practices on Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood.  He takes care of my whole family, and has abolished my children and my husband’s fear of visiting the dentist. Dr McLeod has the latest technology that helps to keep his services up to date, and yet he seems to have all the old world charm of a family doctor ready to come in for an emergency at the week-end, and willing to take his time to do his artistry carefully as if time did not matter. If you are looking for a good dentist stop you have arrived.

Luke T. from Lompoc, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. McLeod is there when you need him.  Even on a holiday weekend.  I recently had a dear friend in need of emergency care on a Sunday afternoon.  I was able to help her out by contacting Dr. McLeod and setting up the appt.  Because of Dr. McLeod’s professionalism and passion for what he does, she was able to recieve the care she needed and be relieved of her pain.  I can’t say enough how much it means to know there are Doctors who truly care still out there.  Thank You so much Sir!  What you did was amazingly appreciated.  I would recommend Dr. McLeod and his practice to anyone after this experience.  He is truly an example of reliable and kind hearted.

Claudia L. from Ariel, WA (Source: Yelp)


I went to Dr McLeod, as per a friend’s recommendation (and after seeing what an incredible job he did on her teeth!), to have veneers put in on both my top and bottom  teeth. Now mind you, (like most dental work), veneers are not a “fun” procedure. But if there is anyone who could make it a comfortable experience, it’s Dr. McLeod! This man goes to great length to assure the comfort of his patients and is one of the warmest and most charming people I have ever met. As far as the outcome on my teeth: his work is ABSOLUTELY impeccable! My teeth are stunning, this man has improved the quality of my life GREATLY by giving me the confidence to smile and be proud of my smile! AND he called after procedures to see how I was feeling! Such a personal touch in an increasingly impersonal modern existence. I highly recommend him to ANYONE!

Mikie F. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love dr. mcleod.  i’ve loved dr. mcleod for over 25 years!  he had red hair when i first went to him with terrible gum problems.  he was charming and funny, but when it came to my teeth, he was dead serious.  he asked me if i had children or nieces and nephews.  when i replied that i had two small nieces, he said, “if you want to have your teeth when you go to their weddings, you’ll have to completely change the way you take care of them!”  i heeded his advice, i go to him religiously twice a year for cleaning, and i brush and floss regularly.  i still have my teeth, my gums are healthy and pink, and dr. mcleod will be my only dentist for as long as he continues to practice dentistry! he is quite a guy and quite a dentist!!!!

Kevin M. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. McLeod exemplifies service!  I wish everyone in a profession that deals with people could learn from his incredible example.  He is also the best dentist I have ever experienced on top of that.   Dr. McLeod was my dentist growing up as he was my parents before that but 15 years ago I moved from LA to Orange County and started a family of my own.  My 14 year old son had some poor dental work done on a deformed tooth about a year ago by our local dentist in Orange County.  This was clearly difficult work because this dentist was actually pretty good and admitted he couldn’t get in there to do the job properly.  On Easter Sunday the cap of that tooth popped off while we were on a family ski trip in mammoth.  I called the best dentist I knew, Dr. McLeod, in the hopes that we could make an appointment to get it fixed up proper.   Now this was Easter Sunday when I left a message at the office hoping to talk to someone on Monday.  Low and behold I get a call later that evening from Dr. McLeod directly.  I was shocked.  He asked if I was in trouble and after hearing about my son got his schedule out and made us an appointment for the next afternoon.   Dr. McLeod spent over 2 hours with my son fixing up this very challenging tooth and my son didn’t complain once, incredible really because he has been terrified of needles and dentists.  Today he has a new gold crown that I know will last him a lifetime (and he has a new found interest in hygiene as a bonus, something you can’t help but acquire after a few hours with Dr. McLeod.   The quality of Dr. McLeod’s work and level of service is so impressive we are making the drive up from south Orange County to Beverly Hills for our 2 other children and if ever we need serious dental work done it will be done by Dr. McLeod.   I can now that say we have 3 generations of patients of Dr. McLeod in the family and couldn’t be happier.

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


Dr McLeod is the epitome of the Bible verse: Titus 3:8 The saying is trustworthy, and I want you to insist on these things, so that those who have believed in God may be careful to devote themselves to good works. These things are excellent and profitable for people. He pays attention to all details. As an educator I appreciate that he explains the reasoning, the chemistry and how the technology that he uses supports creating the best fit for the work he is doing. He truly uses technology to improve his practice down to the precision of the use of anesthesia practice. I appreciate that he calls to follow up on how my family is doing after treatment.  I love that I get to choose my background music  And so appreciated is the cleanliness of the entire office.  Mary at the front is terrific to stay in touch about appointments and Sandra (?) is very caring.  She won’t let you leave without making sure all is right.   We have been going to a dentist for years that does not match most of these descriptors.  I’ve stayed with her because with a decent size family and living paycheck to paycheck the cost is much less.  Dentistry has felt like a bit of a luxury.  This experience has been helpful in my thought process.

Dr. McLeod is the real thing! Before going to Dr. McLeod, I was getting my cleanings done at one of those new, trendy dental office chains with fresh out of dental school doctors that send you home with a cute brush box and frankly care more about their Instagram followers and stylish office than making sure your mouth is healthy. I made the switch to Dr. McLeod after searching for a doctor with great reviews and years of experience, and I was not disappointed! He was also able to get my husband in on short notice for a second opinion after we were quoted hundreds of dollars of unnecessary dental work to fix a bad filling done at a different practice. Dr. McLeod not only avoided unnecessary work, but my husband hasn’t had a problem with his fillings since. He also helped relieve his jaw pain by shaving down one of his molars a bit, something no other dentist has recommended or found a solution for. So simple but something we apparently couldn’t get anywhere else. You will not regret going to this office – his desk staff and hygienists are also very pleasant to work with.

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


Dr. McLeod is a true professional who loves his profession. While getting my root canal therapy, I felt very relaxed because every step along the way, Dr. McLeod lets you know what to expect. I was surprised when I did not feel a thing when he gave me the anesthetic injection. His work was so good that after the procedure, I went out to dinner with a few friends with minimal discomfort in my tooth. He goes out of his way to make sure your experience is as comfortable as possible. Thank you Dr. McLeod!

Richard M. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Where do I begin? I told Dr. Neil that I didn’t like people poking around the inside of my mouth with sharp metal objects. He said, “I wouldn’t think that you would”. I told him I was a big baby, had a very sensitive head and low tolerance for pain. He said, “You will be very comfortable”. He then proceeded to do the most thorough and precise exam that I have ever had in my entire life. He good-naturedly explained that I had a less than winning smile, but that he could help fix that and then explained how he could fix that. He gave me options. He didn’t push me. He allowed me to decide my own path. And then he began to work. He extracted a broken impacted and infected molar. He performed a bone graft. He stitched me up. And yes, I was very comfortable and pretty much pain free. He explained the post operative care and scheduled me for a return visit to remove the stitches. All went extremely well and I would recommend him highly to anyone in need of dental care. You have my word on that. Richard A. Marcus Former Mayor – City of Culver City

Dr McLeod is the kindest man. I feel so lucky to have found such an amazing and talented dentist in Los Angeles. His knowledge for the latest dental engineering and the latest cosmetic technology in dentistry is quite incredible. I always feel nervous going to the dentist but you soon realize that you are in the safest hands with Dr McLeod, plus he and his staff actually make the visit very pleasant and enjoyable! I had major root canal surgery a year ago in which Dr McLeod saved one of my front teeth that was discolored and very weak. It was a 5 hour long procedure, but somehow he managed to save the tooth! The results are beyond belief. Not only did he save the tooth but he also managed to whiten it (something I had been trying and failing to do for years with my previous dentist). You cannot tell there is anything wrong with my tooth now and finally, after years, I can now smile properly again and with confidence! I have also had general check ups with him, a filling on a tooth and have just got a new bite guard to replace the old painful one I had from a previous dentist. i am so grateful to have Dr McLeod as my dentist. He may not always be the cheapest, although his prices are very reasonable, but he is, in my opinion, by far the most talented, intelligent and professional dentist (Really nice guy too).

Dr Neil McLeod saved my teeth! Years of horrible dentistry and neglected old fillings (my old dentist actually told me I have to just live with the pain!) resulted in multiple root canals with an endodontist who led me to the very talented and always entertaining Dr McLeod. My crowns are beautiful, natural, and the best part…I have had no pain for just about 10 years. Sandy is a top notch assistant -always on top of everything, extremely knowledgeable and informative. Add the very capable and compassionate Darlene (hygienist) to the mix, and my teeth are healthy and I haven’t had an issue in years. I get compliments on my smile all the time. Much thanks to you and your lovely staff, Dr McLeod, from the bottom of my heart.

I’m sure there are many people like me searching blindly on google for a dentist to handle an emergency and trusting customer reviews to narrow down their choices. This is exactly how I found Dr. McLeod. I’m grateful for the other online reviews which led me to call his office and want to add my name to the list of those who can’t recommend him enough. I’ve lived in Los Angeles for 13 years but had never found a dentist here, instead continuing to visit my childhood dentist on visits to my parents home. But when I chipped my front tooth I had no choice but to find someone local. A google search provided many choices throughout the West Side but I noticed Dr. McLeod had a significant number of positive reviews on google, yelp and other sites, so I called his office and he was able to see me that morning. I was greeted and led to the examining chair pretty much immediately. No waiting 30-45 minutes like most medical appointments. Dr. McLeod noted my chipped tooth and after a quick exam to determine what caused the damage (grinding and clenching my teeth) was on his way to bonding the broken tooth. I was in and out in just over an hour, no pain, and you’d never know I had any problem at all. The entire visit was very pleasant and Dr. McLeod and his staff put me at ease and were very straightforward about my dental concerns and the options and costs. I felt as if I’d been a patient for years instead of just minutes. Even more impressive, Dr. McLeod himself called me the following day to see how my tooth was doing and if I had any questions or concerns. How many doctors in this day and age do that? Just an outstanding experience all around. I’m sure there are other fine dentists in Los Angeles but I’m so grateful to have found Dr. McLeod and hope this review in addition to others around the net will lead others to the same great experience I had.

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


Doctor McLeod is the best dentist in LA. I had a bad luck before with a dentist who put me through a lot of pain with a crown. When the crown finally fell out( after 3 months of pain) I was given Dr. McLeod’s info from my friend. Dr. McLeod spent over 2 hours cleaning my old crown, disinfecting it, and making sure it fits. I had another crown put in yesterday, and I don’t have any pain. Dr.McLeod spends his time perfecting his work until the patient is satisfied. His staff is very friendly, and for people like me, who have limited finances, they work with me, tell me ahead how much I’ll be paying, and get my permission before Dr.McLeod does anything. I’m really grateful for this guy and his staff.

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


Dr Neal is an unforgetable dentist. Never in my life have I been to a dentist that takes his time and puts so much effert and care to help his patient.  He is so caring and so careful and inspects each tooth to the bone, as they say dots the “I’s” and crosses the “t’s”,. Never have I felt so comfortable to go to the dentist. I love going to the dentist now knowing that I wont have any problems in my mouth. He fixed a botched up root canal I had years ago, that I was having pain for so many years. I can finally go on with my day with no pain in my mouth.  He also has a very friendly personality and a very funny sense of humore, you can go to the denist and feel like you’ve known this man for many years. He is a wonderul careing man. Also, the staff is very very friendly, Especially Mary at the front desk. She is very pleasant and kind.  Anyway, I am very impressed with his professionalism and his kindness and care for his patients. I cannot say enough good things about doctor Neal McLeod.

Janet J. from Playa Del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. McLeod is the best dentist there is, bar none. He has treated me and my family for many years. He even cured my TMJ. I love the fact that he checks on us the evening after he has treated us. He does not stop caring for his patients when they leave his office.   Don’t be mislead by the only negative reviewer. Her 20 minutes experience is no basis for an opinion of the quality dentistry that Dr. McLeod provides. I have at least 5 crowns in my mouth that are nearly 15 years old and I have never had any problems with any of them. Dr. McLeod did all of them.  I had a painless root canal about 10 years ago. You can go get a second opinion but keep in mind that every dentist wants your business.  You don’t need to with Dr. McLeod.  He is the best dentist there is

Daryl P. from Scottsdale, AZ (Source: Yelp)


If you want a dr who TRULY cares about you then i would recommend dr mcleod highly. dr mcleod had patients who were moving away from the area. rather than just wishing them luck he researched who the best dentists were in the area they were moving. then personally called to ask about the practice to see if it was a good fit. i’ve been practicing dentistry for 15 yrs and have never heard of a fellow dentist going above and beyond the way he did. he not only cares about the work he did but about these patients future care as well. as for victoria’s comments she is way off base. every dentist charges for crowns the day they are started. seems like she wanted cheap dentistry instead of the best dentistry

Monday night I chipped my tooth while eating a candy cane. I FREAKED OUT. I stumbled upon Doctor McLeod on the internet that night, and I was in his office the next morning. Now I am not one who particularly enjoys going to the dentist, but I have to say that has changed now. Doctor McLeod is not only one of the funniest people I’ve met while living in LA, he may be one of the most charming people I’ve ever met period. He kept me smiling and laughing the entire time. His staff is also extremely friendly and welcoming 🙂 He fixed my tooth in a jiffy, and it looks PERFECT. I expected to have to pay an arm and a leg, but the cost was totally fair!! If you need a great dentist that you actually look forward to visiting with, he’s definitely the ONE!!!

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


I have been going to Dr. McLeod since the 70’s. Over the years due to changes in insurance I have gone to other dentist. Their work ethic never compared to Dr. McLeod’s. Neil’s work is impeccable.  He explains everything to you in detail. In all the years that I have been going to him he has never compromised his work. When I have had to have oral surgery he always calls in the evening to see how you are doing. In today’s world that is unheard of. There are not enough words to express my admiration and regard for his work. His staff is always there if you have questions. They could not be more kind and considerate. Neil has never let me down and has always been there for me in an emergency. I cannot recommend him more. He is amazing in every way.

Dr. McLeod is literally the very BEST dentist I have ever had in my entire life, and I honestly can’t imagine ever going to another dentist again. Once you experience the best in his field of dentistry, why would you want to settle for anything mediocre? I had a serious situation that needed immediate attention on a day that Dr. McLeod’s office was closed. A good friend of mine was able to reach him and arranged for an emergency office visit at short notice. This was my first time ever seeing Dr. McLeod, so I went to go meet him at his convenient West Hollywood location. Since I was a newbie, I wasn’t sure where to park. This courteous Doctor went above and beyond and was kind enough to meet me outside the building to direct us where to go! It is evident upon meeting Dr. McLeod for the first time that he takes pride in his profession, has a passion for what he does, and genuinely CARES about his patients well-being. I have never met a more honorable dentist. I always experience mild anxiety when visiting any dentist. I think I have a slight phobia of some sort… My heart starts beating fast, I get nervous, my muscles start to tense, and I am on the verge of panic… The moment Dr. McLeod introduced himself to me I felt an automatic sense of comfort. He is the consummate professional with a warm smile, friendly disposition, and a hilarious sense of humor. I was extremely impressed with the cleanliness of his charming office and the high-tech equipment he uses in his dental practice. I’m such a big baby when taking X-Rays because I have the WORST gag reflex. I was starting to panic… Instead of becoming impatient with me, like most dentists have done to me in the past, Dr. McLeod worked with me, gave me explicit instruction, and talked me through the process until I was comfortable enough to proceed. The X-Rays were done digitally, which made them ready to be analyzed in a jiffy. He assessed the situation and immediately got right to work. He is very thorough when explaining absolutely every little detail with your situation, ensuring that you are aware of what he is doing and why he is doing it. Dr. McLeod took care of my situation in an expedient and thorough manner, he was attentive, gentle, and went above and beyond what most dentists would do. He even chatted it up with my daughter for a bit and made her laugh… I highly recommend Dr. McLeod for all your dental needs! If you are looking for someone who truly cares about your dental health and you as a person, please look no further! I understand that no one “likes” going to the dentist, but I assure you, this Doctor will definitely change your perception! Even after all his great care, he followed up with me via email to make sure I was doing okay… How many dentists do YOU know does that? I sure didn’t! He truly goes the extra mile, and I am so very appreciative of that!

I came to Dr. McLeod’s office needing remedial work. I had stopped seeing my former dentist after he had some health problems. I needed old filings and crowns removed and replaced. We have begun a program of getting my mouth in top shape. The only thing good enough for Neil is perfect. I am paying more than I was before, but I am interested in a long term result and feel that it is well worth the price. I don’t want to have bad teeth later in life, and I surely do not want to be drilled on as an elderly patient. I think it is best to do the job once. Nine months ago I asked him what he thought about my lower front teeth that had gotten horribly crooked after I turned 50. He said that he could straighten them without pulling any teeth or braces. I still have 9 more months to go, but the device that he fitted me with has worked like magic. The teeth already look natural, but we are going for perfect. I am 100% satisfied.

“Finding a Dentist you can trust and like to go to ?”Impossible”, you say……..! Well, that’s what I firmly believed,  prior to having a dental emergency and by luck discovered this amazing physician. Let me tell you…. Once you have come to Dr McLeod’s office and  have been treated by him, you will agree with me…Dental Care and the Improvement of our Looks does not have to be a painful and agonizing experience!And he is the only Dentist you want to go to! Dr. McLeod’s Staff is exceptionally courteous, respectful and friendly, always follows up with appointment-reminders and is very easy to communicate with.The atmosphere at the office is very relaxed and welcoming, yet reads knowledgeable professionalism. Unusual for our time, Dr.McLeod is a true craftsman in his profession, who does not only take great care with each individual patient, but also takes the time ! His treatments go far beyond that of just “fixing” the immediate problem, he nurtures one’s awareness of the total well-being and how our gums and teeth reflect on what we might neglect in other areas dealing with our health, and offers help through referrals to possible other specialists, if needed.All done at the patient’s discretion. What I really appreciate, is that he never pushes you into a decision about treatment, but rather lays out the situation for you, guides you through options and explains in detail what your expectations should or could be….and then he gives you time to reflect on it and decide for yourself. Bottom line…. Pick up the phone and schedule your appointment with Dr.McLeod now! You will not regret it! It just might change your life!

I would like to start off by saying I received no compensation/discount for this review because it will be so fabulous I know that will be questioned. Put simply, Dr.McLeod is hands down the best at what he does. I came from out of town scouring many websites to find a suitable dentist for the extensive work I needed done and was incredibly nervous about getting the chicklet-like veneers so common to Los Angeles. I began with an initial free consultation where he examined my mouth and teeth in it’s entirety and was incredibly knowledgeable and kind in explaining why I needed every procedure and in answering my (many) questions. He also was honest, telling me the bare minimum of what work he would have done on his own daughter versus what could be done later or wasn’t necessary. Dr. McLeod provided me first and foremost, with the most beautiful set of not only veneers but TEETH I have ever seen. He provided me with a full set on top and they look completely natural (what I was most concerned with). I came back to college without telling anyone and my close friends mentioned to me how fantastic my teeth looked, but had no idea why. He also performed eleven fillings for me (yes, eleven I have terrible teeth and a bad grinding problem). I am a total baby about pain, and I can honestly say this was completely painless. His right hand (wo)man- Sandy, was an integral part of this and also did a fantastic job. I never imagined in my life that I would enjoy going to the dentist. But after my (many) sessions getting my various procedures done, I got to know Dr. McLeod and the staff very well and can say from multiple experiences that every one has been fantastic, as I just finished my final one. Everyone is so friendly and passionate about you having the best experience possible. Should you have any problems, they are quick to let you in the next day to get it fixed without charge. Additionally, I received multiple calls from Dr. McLeod himself the night after visits where I had gotten extensive work done to check up on how I was doing. He gave me his personal cell phone number on the first visit as well should I need to contact him first after hours. His prices are reasonable – INCREDIBLY – reasonable for the area. However, the work he performs is quite truly, the Rolls Royce of dentistry. As an ode to this, he only accepts four patients a day to ensure he is giving each patient the time and meticulous care they deserve. My only tip regarding pricing is to go early and try to find parking somewhere other than the parking structure under the building. I know there is a close lot nearby that charges around $10. If you park beneath the structure, you will pay around $33 + tip for any visit that is an hour or longer. I never realized how bad my previous dentists were until I visited Dr. McLeod. I will never let another dentist touch my teeth again. Do yourself a favor and book an appointment with him the next time you are seeking dental work. You can thank me later. 🙂

Dr. McLeod is the best. I met Dr. McLeod at a dental conference this past month in Orange County. I am dental student in the Los Angeles area and was invited to attend this conference. I heard Dr. McCleod speak at the conference and I thought what he had to say was amazing. At the reception for the conference, I bit into a piece of pizza and my front tooth cracked. This tooth was previously bonded together from a basketball accident. I was sitting at a table full of dentist that were close by (within 20 minutes) and none of them offered to fix it for me. I went up to Dr. McCleod and asked if he knew anyone in the area. Without hesitation he offered to make the hour drive to his office and fix it for me that Friday night. A classmate and myself followed him to his office that night where he opened up his office and fixed it for me. Dr. McCleod is one of the most genuine, caring dentist I have ever met. He took the time to make sure that my tooth looked great after restoring it. The first shade he selected he didn’t like and took the time to change shades so it blended with my natural tooth so nicely. I am amongst dentists and dental students all the time and these professionals have a hard time seeing which tooth was fixed because he did such a great job. I would recommend him to anyone. Not only did he do a great job at fixing my tooth (and yes I critiqued his every step being a dental student) but he did it with a passionate caring heart. He made me feel so relaxed and welcome at his office. You can see the passion this man has for dentistry and it shows with his patient interaction and with his work. Stop looking for other dentists. This is the man for you!!!!!
