I had came in with a very bad toothache and I had no idea why. Dr Dounel was able to identify the problem right away and gave me a solution fast. I was in and out of there in no time and the reason for my pain was gone. Him and his employees are very friendly and attentive to any situation that presented to them. He removed my wisdom tooth in a matter of minutes and made it as less as painful as it can be

I absolutely love New Smile Dental…. I have never experienced service quite like this. Staff is very professional and always willing to give information when needed. The dentist is by far the best I have ever had. My whole family comes to New Smile Dental. There is no pain, and you are in and out. Nice, clean, family feel environment. Honestly you can go to work or to the gym after your visit. There is no extensive recovery time needed. I encourage everyone with a busy schedule to book your quick and fast dentist appointment with New Smile Dental

Excellent service. I was seen within an hour and a half after calling about a broken tooth. The office was short staffed, but I was still taken in and taken care of in less than one hour, and never felt rushed or unappreciated. I will be coming back for all of my future dental needs!

I absolutely hate going to the dentist because I get anxiety. But I absolutely love my dentist and his assistant. They are a great team and have loads of patience for a difficult soul such as myself. They genuinely care about how I feel during the process and that makes it easier for me to go through the process of drills and sharp tools in my mouth (which I truly hate) I live in The Antelope Valley but will drive to have them do any dental work I need just because I’m comfortable there

One Saturday night I was having crazyyy tooth pain, I couldn’t even eat, sleep, or talk. I googled a 24 hour dentist and this was one of the top results so I called without much hope but to my surprise Dr. Michael Dounel answered himself and scheduled me in first thing Sunday morning. I have never had such a pleasant dentist experience especially during a time of such nauseating pain. He was able to locate the source of the pain and extract my tooth within a few minutes! Even scheduled a complementary check up a week post extraction. I haven’t had any problems since then and I definitely found my new dentist for life! Very clean and welcoming office, really makes a dentist office feel comforting. Best doctor experience I’ve had! I would recommend Dr. Michael Dounel to all my friends and family he’s amazing at what he does!

Rebecca F. from Harbor City, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I originally made an emergency appointment with this dentist in the parking lot at work, without looking at any reviews or any information. I’m so happy this is where I wound up! I had 5,yes FIVE, teeth that had root canals, but no temporary crowns, for 9 months. I had given up on trying to eat and didn’t ever see an end to the issue because crowns are very pricey. Dr Dounel was able to open my Care Credit line to be able to cover all five crowns, a filling, and a cleaning that was done before we started any of the “real”work. I had 4 appointments over 4 1/2-5 weeks, and I have all five crowns! Each appointment was efficient and easy! I am so grateful that I got to get all of this done, at a far more reasonable amount (with new insurance) than I had been quoted previously at other dentists. Thank you Dr Dounel and a special shout out to his assistant Jeremy, who is attentive and funny, which makes dealing with the dentist less stressful!

I had a root canal done at another dentist and about a month later on a Sunday,. I was in the worst excutiating pain ever where the root canal was done. So I called all over to every dentist on Google including the so called 24 he ones. New smile was the only one to answer the call. He came in at 5pm Sunday, pulled the tooth and I was a happy man. That was 3 years ago and I’ve been coming here ever since. Office is nice and clean, free parking, quick, and does good work

I’ve always been afraid of having a wisdom tooth removed from all the horror stories I’ve heard. I had a terrible toothache and was able to be seen here. They took care of me quickly and flawlessly with no pain. Walking out a happy man. Definitely returning for more work to be done

Larry H. from Hollywood, FL (Source: Yelp)


I was in Los Angeles on business when a tooth became infected with unbelievable pain.  I did some research on a Saturday, and couldn’t believe the amazing dentist I picked.  Dr. Dounel was kind, considerate, professional, and he waited until I could get there from my hotel.  The office was immaculate and well equipped, and he talked me through the entire process and procedure to have the tooth removed.  I knew immediately that I had made the right choice!  He didn’t rush anything, he continually checked to make sure I wasn’t in pain, and he gently removed the old broken tooth.  I have another old tooth that needs to be removed, and I am making plans to do that with Dr. Dounel on my next business trip to Los Angeles.  He is the best!

Sandy F. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wisdom tooth was aching. I was in line at Walgreens getting tylenol then I realized the dentist said open 24 hours.I called the dentist he took my insurance Information and let me know what my copay was over the phone. I had an appointment in an hour. I got to the office, signed in and he went to work on me immediately. I wasn’t there long, my tooth got pulled and I received prescriptions for pain meds. This was not my first visit here. I have a regular dentist that I was being loyal to, but the quality of work and the availability schedule at new smile dental has won me over. I made an appointment for a deep cleaning before I left. I reccomend New Smile Dental because they do quality work, their available 24 hours a day, and the process is fast and convenient

Just walked out from having my wisdom tooth removed…and I must say…it was wayyyy easier than I expected. Yes it stung for a second but hey it’s a wisdom tooth. Its my fault I took so long to get it out. Especially after my Mom passing away from cancer recently, I dont do well with operating rooms. But the Doc did sooo well he helped that tension go away with being very professional and friendly. I highly recommend this dentist. And it also only took like 20 minutes for me as well

Jesse H. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Michael Dounel, was amazing. I came in no wait and was seen right away. He diagnosed what the problem was and gave me two comfortable options. Eventually I went with the option to take the tooth out. Let me tell you about that! Dr. Michael Dounel numbed my mouth so I wouldn’t feel any pain during the procedure and that’s exactly what went down. Painless tooth removal. Oh and the best part, the tooth removal was done under FIVE MINUTES! I couldn’t believe it! Let me give some credit to my boy Jeremy as well. He was there assisting Dr Michael . He made me feel comfortable and relaxed throughout the whole process. I will definitely recommend this dental spot to anybody who needs dental work.

Dr. Dounel is AMAZING!! He was on-time and made me feel so comfortable. His work was amazing as well! I heard he is amazing but did not realize to what extent until I went in. Absolutely recommend him!

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


I was in so much pain on Saturday night desperite I started searching for a dentist that would be open on Sunday (not to many dentist are open Sundays) long story short I found Dr. Dounel.  I called first thing Sunday morning, surprisingly Dr. Dounel answered the phone and was able to see me that day.  Upon arriving he greeted myself and my boyfriend with the biggest smile. Gave me the standard paper work and even before I could finish he got me into the exam chair. Took the xrays and explained everything that needed to be done to get rid of my tooth pain. Prior to him starting he went out to get my boyfriend so he would explain the procedure to him. Doctor is very friendly, professional, understanding, and compassionate.  His mom works with him, she is so sweet and made me feel comfortable. Highly recommended!!! Will be going back!!

Ana S. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Dounel is simply amazing. I was having the most excruciating pain on one of my wisdom teeth. I thought I would have to wait until Monday to call my dentist until I came across New Smile Dental. I called and within the next few hours I was greeted by Dr. Dounel. He explained everything that was going to happen, and after 5 painless minutes I was out of there with a smile on my face. If you’re looking for a dentist New Smile Dental is where you should go. Thank you so much Dr. Dounel

Excellent! I was in agony, had a broken tooth, needed removed. I called, and they said come in immediately. An hour later, Michael was taking care of me. My new dentist! I already referred my mother to Michael. I recommend him to you too. Give them a call, you will be pleased

I’m EXTREMELY satisfied with EVERYTHING about this dental office. This is a long review but it’s worth it. I had bad pain coming from my wisdom tooth. And i found this amazing dentist through google. So I gave them a call because I couldn’t take the pain anymore and let me just say how impressed I am from start to end.  Right away I was able to see someone and get my X-ray done which was FAST AND SMOOTH! He then explained everything to me. He made sure I understood the procedure that was about to be done. And made sure I was comfortable with EVERYTHING. When the anesthesia was applied, I didn’t feel anything and I was so happy because ( generally all needles hurt ). Throughout the procedure I didn’t feel anything what so ever. Literally everything went smooth. Micheal Dounel D.M.D is the best!!!!! I’m definitely referring all my friends and family to this amazing dentist office! Thank you!!

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


I was having pain in one of my molars and right now with all this covid stuff its hard to find a dentist that will take you in right away or even check you. I found New Smile Dental on here and they took me in, in less than a week and got all my work done within a week. I am satisfied with my work. The dentist and assistants are very attentive as well

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


This morning I woke up around 6:00 am with excruciating pain on my left top molar, called this amazing dental office at around 7:00am and made an appointment for 10:30 same day and took me right in doctor Michael made me feel comfortable throughout the whole procedure NO PAIN NO NOTHING! Love their custom service, cleanliness. I would definitely recommend this place 10/10 🙂

I came there for a cleaning and was serviced right away. Dr. Dounel paid attention to my teeth on my next visit over a year later, and indicated to me that my teeth were not as clean as the first time. This attention to detail sets this dentist apart from others I have visited in the Inglewood area

Dr. Michael went out of his way to help me after hours. He was the only dentist in a 15mi radius that responded. I was having an emergency and he definitely saved me on this one. Thank you Dr. Michael.  On my Second visit I was able to see the location in full operation. This place has a great feel, verry friendly and responsive staff. You guys are great!

Soooo, I needed a dentist bad. Woke up last friday and my mouth was killing me. I thought someone hit me in the face with a bat while i was sleep.  Come to find out i had a tooth that was on its last leg…lol…actually it was a tooth with a major cavity going on below the gum line. Its 2am and i needed a dentist like now!!!….I jumped up and began to google different dentist in my area. A few poped in with 24hr dental care but they were to far to travel in that amount of pain. I called a few of my folks and all i got was wait till later….I then began to look in my mail folder for a past flyer of some sort and to my surprise i found a NEW SMILE DENTAL FLYER….Wow!!!…I called Immediately and Doctor Dounel answered the phone. After hearing my distress he told md to come down now and he fixed the problem immediately!!…Now im not one to brag on others, but when it comes to a great dentist, great atmosphere, and caring people theres only 1 Dentist that i recommend!!!….New Smile Dental!!

Tamika C. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


OMG! I used to go here not sure why I stopped because He is AMAZING!! I had a dental emergency over the wknd (wish I would have called sooner) but he had me come right in and gave me all my options. Very patient, professional and the office is super clean.  The receptionist is GREAT! She has a comforting spirit like your mother! Did I mention he’s not bad to look at either! Lol! My #1 Dentist from here on out! Thx Dr. Michael

During this awful COVID crisis New Smile Dental got me in within the hour. My year old root canal from another dentist failed. Dr Dounel gave me all the options and was completely up front. The procedure was quick and painless. Thanks for being open for emergency procedures!

Thank you team New Smile Dental!!  Great team. Awesome Dr Dounel

Marshon M. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I called New Smile on 6/3/2019 in extreme pain requesting an after hour emergency visit. I am very choosy when it comes to seeing a new dentist but I had no other choice as my tooth was throbbing and I could not wait. I called, spoke w/ Michael Dounel, DMD, was given empathy due to the issue/ concern, and provided a same day evening appointment. I went into the office (very nice office by the way) skeptical and was VERY PLEASED and at ease! This will be my new dentist. PLEASE GIVE NEW SMILE DENTAL A TRY! I even referred my mother 🙂

Belle L. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came and saw Dr dounel on a weekend where I was having alot of pain.I heard of them through kjlh radio with Kevin nash.he started the rout canal procedure and got me out of pain.And I felt at ease.There was no pain and the staff was very nice.They communicated everything and clearly explained the whole procedure.I will be coming back to finish my root canal and crown.The dental assistant was very nice and helped me alot as I was very nervous with the procedure.The prices were reasonable as I had gotten root canals done before.They are available 24 hours a day and it’s good to know that I can speak to someone at anytime!

I was a new patient at this dental office in Inglewood, trying to support my community. And I had a previous dentist billed my Insurance during my most critical condition under going Chemotherapy treatments, for my cancer which had no cure. That dentist then had gotten paid for job they didnot do. Now I needed my current partial repaired and a upper and lower partial to be made. I went into the office, only the Dentist and a male staff was there. I was happy at the clean look, They edid my xray, and then the dentist filled my teeth he scale back after he finished, also scaled few of my teeth. He gave me the total portion of cost for my partial. I didnot know then, that he had not submitted a bill to Delta Dental. I gave a $550:00 deposit towards my denture. Then later on another time my daughter went in, as she is covered under my plan. They charge her a co’-pay. I got suspicious as we do not have co-pay. I called Delta Dental it was confirmed that we should not had paid a co- pay or the denture deposit, since the dentist didnot submitted an estimate for my partial. I received an invoice from Delta Dental showing that I received fluoride treatment, polish,. As there is God!! I never had fluoride treatment nor polish. I received some cleaning, a filling, impressions, and xray. I call and call left messages more than once, the Dentist never returned my calls. At one point the receptionist told me there were no file on me. The next time I called wanting my money back , the receptionist told me to come and pick it up on Friday. The next day I got a call from the receptionist that my money can not be returned, because they already started the work. I immediately call my insurance DD and was told the dentist or his office still didn’t send in an estimated billThis was then that the Dentist call me back. I know God is going to reward this Dentist for literally ripping me off. In December 2016 I was very ill and seems like I was dying. But God save me because I dont to wrong to people. But I want this dentist and others to know. God is not please when you rob the poor. I will be praying day and night with fasting how he took my $550:00 plus my daughter money. And I can “GUARANTEED” God will answer my prayer. Because Him God is a Just God. There is a thing that is called wrongful enrichment. And this is what this dentist did

Suffered a severe infection caused by my wisdom tooth over the weekend and needed assistance right away. I thought to myself “there is no dentist who operates on a Sunday afternoon, I will suffer! After a quick online search, Dr. Dounel’s on-call information was provided and he immediately responded after leaving a voicemail. With a great sense of urgency, he said he can meet me at his office right away (homeboy was with his family at the time, because…that’s what Sundays are for). In no time I was sitting in the chair with my whole mouth numb ready to get my tooth yanked out. Interestingly enough, the procedure took as little as 10 minutes, all without a dental assistant. Dr. Dounel really made it a comfortable and pleasant experience because I honestly didn’t know what to expect. Infection went away and I couldn’t have been happier. Thank you immensely Dr!
