Hello there! I want to share my review here because My first visit was amazing! Dr. Steve Tassone has a great office, very clean and I felt comfortable being there! By the way, they have massage on that chair you sit on when they do x-rays and dental work!!))) All assistants of Dr. Steve were very professional and very friendly. I have been to 3 dental offices, looking for a specialist who I can trust to make my smile better. And I’m very happy I found this place! Consultation is free, but Dr. Steve Tassone was very attentive and took his time to listen to my needs. I can’t wait next week to start the treatment!

Dr Tassone and his staff are exceptional in every way. From the friendly, warm greeting as you enter the office, to the care and concern for your comfort and well being throughout your visit. The center has state of the art facilities and all the latest technologies to offer the best treatment options available. Dr Tassone is so professional, yet warm and personable. My appointments never feel rushed and he makes time to answer all my questions and concerns. He is always reachable and follows up to check on you after treatment. The staff at New Smiles are wonderful. They are highly trained, very thoughtful of your comfort and support Dr Tassone exceptional well. Because of the care I receive there, from the front desk, hygienists and the amazing dental technicians, I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Thank you to all at New Smiles !

Thanks to Dr Tassone at “NEW SMILES”  I now have a beautiful smile. My teeth were crooked and crossed over until Dr Tassone suggested that I have my teeth straightened using the Invisalign clear braces system. I am so happy with the results. Our family has been going to New Smiles Dentistry for over 25 years. I can see why he has been voted “Best Dentist in the South Bay” for the last 7 consecutive years. When I visit the office I feel like I am visiting family. The staff is knowledgeable and experienced. He takes the time to listen even when he is busy. I highly recommend Dr Tassone as an excellent and trustworthy dentist.

Just became a patient a few month ago. Had some extensive work done. Dr. Tassone’s team checks all of the boxes for us. Staff has a very friendly, upbeat vibe. Dr. Tassone is both a highly skilled professional, yet very warm, caring person. Equipment is all cutting-edge A very comfortable environment that genuinely cares for the patient. Don’t usually hand out endorsements, but have already recommended this practice to others. New Smiles sets a very high bar for the dental profession.

Dr. Tassone and his staff are outstanding! My whole family have been patients of Dr. Tassone for over 15 years and couldn’t be happier with the treatment and service we received. Dr. Tassone gave me a great smile with veneers. I get complimented on them all the time. If you’re looking for a top notch dental practice, you have to check out New Smiles Dentistry.!

Steve Tassone and his staff are truly incredible ! I had a dental emergency today, and he and his staff stayed a few hours after closing to help me. It was so sweet of them, and I truly appreciate their kindness. Great Dentist ! Great Staff ! Gorgeous Office ! Thanks to Steve Tassone, I will have a nice weekend with beautiful teeth.

Lee D. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


As someone who dreads going to the dentist, I have found Dr. Tassone to be a godsend. Not only is he the consummate professional with excellent technical skills, but most importantly for me he is a superb communicator with a chair side manner that is calming, reassuring, and logical so that it engenders trust so I can relax. He is never hurried, takes the time to answer every question fully (I ask a lot) and always explains what he is doing and what to expect next. My fear of dental pain dissolves and I find myself trusting him to get through the process with a minimal of discomfort. I have never known him to be anything but upbeat, positive, and cheerful and he genuinely cares about people as is evident by the things he does for others outside of his practice. His upbeat attitude carries over to his entire staff who are cheerful, friendly, and buttoned down to a T. When you walk into his spotless office you feel welcomed and I give the highest recommendation to Dr. Tassone and his team. Thank God his is still reasonably young and won’t retire for a while.

In addition to being professional, knowledgeable and attentive, Dr. Tassone and his team are genuinely nice people! This is why I have trusted them with the dental care for myself and my family for more than 25 years. Great people, great service, great office, great location.
If you are shopping for a Dentist, look no further!

First off – I really don’t like going to the Dentist… But If all my experiences were like going to New smiles, I might not be so reluctant to go. Dr. Tassone and his crew are absolutely top notch in everything about the experience. Clean/modern/friendly/helpful and the work is always a lot more gentle on my mouth than other dentists. I would give 10 stars if I could!

Fran K. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


TERRIFIC! I was recommended to dr tasssone by my dermatologist … I had been a patient of another dentist for over 30 years but my last visits with this ‘other’ dentist results in my crown falling off…. 3 times! So I decided to get a 2nd opinion from dr tassone … i explained to him my ‘guilt’ at having to see another dentist i offered to pay for the xrays and consultation because i told dr tassone that if his recommendation was something other than simply re-cementing the crown (which i would pay dr tassone to do) — then i would go back to my other dentist to do the work (since i had already paid a small fortune for the crown) well, dr tassone is sooooooooo gracious! he did not want me to pay for the full set of xrays (took at least 20 minutes to do by his very capable assistant) or the consultation … dr tassone has ‘class’ ….and integrity i’d HIGHLY HIGHLY recommend you see him

Tiffany I. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Tassone and his staff are so nice!!  I’ve been going to them for about 2 years and I’ve never felt like they’re trying to push extra services on me which is much appreciated. They’re always very nice and my wait times are short. With covid, they’ve still been very accommodating and kind. I initially went just for Invisalign, but I liked them so much I stayed for my dental check ups as well!  I highly recommend them!

I had an amazing experience despite needing to get a filling…lol! I walked in and was greeted by name and with smiles from the receptionist. The doctor was running a few minutes behind schedule however, Michelle checked in with me to make sure that I was okay and kept me informed until i was called back. This showed me that they respected and were considerate of my time. Dr. Nemeth was amazing! There was no pain during or after my procedure. She is always pleasant and her assistant was very knowledgeable. I would recommend New Smiles Dentistry to anyone looking for a great dentist!

Remee McNulty (Source: Facebook)


love this dentist! Dr. Tassone and his staff is wonderful. Dr. Tassone has always done my cosmetic dentistry and my teeth always look amazing! He is very talented , and has an extremely good bedside manner. I highly recommend him. You won’t be disappointed.

I had a front baby tooth that required extraction and I decided on veneers. As any good yelper, I scoured the internet for a veneer extraordinaire. Dentist veneer pictures left me skeptical. I found Dr. Tassone through patient’s before and after’s and I was sold. Dr. Tassone is sweet with excellent bedside manners. Beautiful office, easy parking and his staff is downright pleasant. My dental work: tooth extraction, bleaching, gum contouring and bridge for my soon-to-be missing tooth. Visit 1- Consultation, X-rays, and discussion of my expectations for veneers. We looked at photos of veneer shapes while Dr. Tassone offered his professional input. My visit was free and 1.5 Hours. Visit 2- Wax up (mold to create 3-D veneer model) OPTIONAL and worth it. Included bleaching trays and bleach. It will be two weeks to receive the wax up from the lab. My visit was $395 and 1.5 Hours. Visit 3- Wax up 3-D model viewing. Reviewed a model of my teeth/gums covered in the veneer style I picked. I held the model at different angles and inspected it. I was provided the treatment cost and payment options. My visit was free and 2 hours. Visit 4- The worst visit to date. 1 Tooth pulled, 8 teeth prepped for veneers, 2 teeth had gum contouring. My visit was 7 hours. No pain, no gain! Painful and payment day lol. Visit5/6- Extra visits due to my tooth extraction.

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


Steve Tassone has always taken care of me. I had problems with my teeth he fixed them and gave me a great smile. I get compliments all the time. He has always made time for me in emergency situations. Even gave me his cell phone number and has met me at the office during non workdays or work hours. His staff is one of a kind. Always greeting me with a smile which makes you feel comfortable and mind at ease. I would definitely recommend seeing Steve. I am truly great full of his knowledge and what he has done to better improve my life. Thank you Steve and your wonderful staff.

I was really happy my first visit with Dr. Stephen Tassone. He was replacing a crown kept having pain he would text and check up on my pain level he ended up having to do a root canal. He is so kind and considerate and makes sure I was comfortable during the procedure. I love the staff they are all very friendly also worked with me on payment plan that I could work with. I will continue see Dr. Tassone for future dental care!

I have been with Dr.Tassone over the last 12 years… I lost him for a while due to his move to his new beautiful location… I finally found him and feel like I won the lottery!!! If you want the best dentist in the south by this is where you want to be! I cannot say a bad thing about Dr.Tassone. His the best of the best! Thank you for my beautiful smile!!! He can take care of ANY dental needs. Fantastic staff and service!

First visit at New Smiles. I was extremely impressed with the office. I was immediately greeted. The staff was very friendly. The office is beautifully decorated. Extremely clean. The dentist was surprisingly thorough, I’ve never had a dentist check for potential cancer lumps or check my jaw. The Hygenist was friendly and did a great job as well. I found my new dental office. I highly recommend New Smiles

Being a fairly new resident to Southern California, I was forced to embark upon the task of finding a new dentist. My partner who has been a patient for 25+ years of New Smiles has had nothing but professional, honest and top-notch quality dentistry. So, that is  why I drive from Yucaipa (Inland Empire) to visit the best dentist office I have had since departing WA state. Such friendly, sincere, honest staff from the dental assistants to the staff oral surgeon and of course the top guy, Dr Steve Tassone!!!

Gina Elody (Source: Facebook)


They were diligent in their efforts to keep us safe from being exposed to Covid 19.. They are great for families with children, very clean nice facility. I like that I can trust that they care about their patients and they aren’t just trying to get more money for unnecessary services/procedures.

Shirley W. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Google)


I’m back in good hands after a few years move away.  Thank goodness Dr was able to see me right away!  Staff as always is accommodating, pleasant, sensitive to your needs, kind and with a smile.  Dr T remembered my health from 6 years ago.  He is willing to do what makes you happy, but really cares about your health and what’s really necessary.  The new office is fabulous!  If you’re a dental chicken, try this office.  They are NOT a mill, cranking out patients for profit.  They are family.

Bri R. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


I originally went to a well known dental office in Beverly Hills to inquire about getting veneers and a crown lengthening (removal of excess gum tissue). After paying a few thousands for the gum surgery I was not impressed! I decided not to get my veneers done there. I found Dr. Tassone online and went in for a consultation. He redid my gum surgery for 1/4th of the cost! and I also got 4 veneers done for the same price of 2 veneers in Beverly Hills! My gums look great (much better than what the other guy did!), and my veneers look amazing and natural! Dr. Tassone is a perfectionist and does an amazing job at delivering professional high quality work! The staff is also very professional! Wendy does an amazing job with the temporary veneers! She does a great job of modeling the temps to look very similar to the permanent veneers. No one will ever know that they are temps because she is that good at what she does! BOTTOM LINE: Save yourself some TIME and MONEY and avoid Beverly Hills dental offices! Dr. Tassone will provide the same quality of work if not better for a reasonable cost! Don’t be fooled into thinking that Beverly Hills is the only way to get great veneers! I am so glad that I found Dr. Tassone!

I’ve been going to New Smiles Dentistry for over 15 years and have no intention of leaving anytime soon. I now live over an hour away, but I still make the drive to the office for Dr. Tassone and his kind staff. They always do great work, are compassionate with the work they perform, and quickly answer any questions I have. I would definitely recommend New Smiles Dentistry!

Bruce W. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is a quality Dentist I am a Dentist myself(retired). I have known Dr Tassone for over 20 years and he has been my Dentist for over 10 years. I am very satisfied with the service that I have received from periodic cleanings to major restorative work. He has literally saved several of my teeth. I know a quality office when I see it and I highly recommend this Dentist. Bruce J Walker, DDS

I’ve been going to Dr. Tassone for over 20 years! I have to say, he is amazing at his ability to make you feel comfortable. He and his staff are extremely professional and caring. After having veneers, my self confidence has soared and I get compliments on them weekly! This is the best thing I’ve ever done for myself. If you are ever thinking about any kind of cosmetic dental work, Dr. Tassone is the man! Their general dentistry, hygienists and front office staff are also top notch.

I have always known that Dr Tassone was a wonderful and caring dentist but this week he and his office staff demonstrated why they have been voted the best in the South Bay. On the way to work this week, I tripped and fell and broke/chipped my two front teeth with lip and gum damage. After I assessed that there were no broken bones, I immediately called Dr. Tassone’s office. He said that he had a busy line up but if I didn’t mind waiting, he would fit me in. This was an immediate relief because I didn’t know the extent of the damage, my teeth were a mess and I couldn’t do anything until I was seen by a doctor. When I arrived, I didn’t wait long at all. Both Dr. Tasssone and his staff were concerned for my well being and they took me back to do x-rays and gave me ice packs. Next, Dr Tassone gently worked on realigning my teeth and correcting my bite. After that he had his amazing assistant Wendy, bond and repair my teeth. He also made an afternoon appointment with a specialist to examine my jaw further. I was able to leave that morning with my smile beautifully repaired and the security of knowing that all my injuries were being expertly addressed. I can’t say enough about the superb treatment I received from Dr Tassone and his staff. His fast response alone was a major blessing. If you want a superb dentist, go to Dr Tassone. The level of caring, expertise and professionalism at New Smiles Dentistry is unparalleled.

Recently my great dentist for decades unexpectedly passed away. I began the process of asking around and found it was like throwing darts to find a good dentist. You’ll be surprised of other people who are also looking for a good dentist! Let’s face it, why do we go to the dentist? Receive “Grade A” superior dentistry in a pleasant comfortable atmosphere! Good leads came from a long career semi-retired dentist who supplied a list of “Grade A” dentists he knew. One dentist on the list provided was Dr. Tassone who he himself goes to. It was explained that Dr. Tassone provides superior dentistry, has a highly experienced staff and a pleasant office atmosphere. I gave Dr. Tassone a try. Look no further! “Go to the dentist the dentist goes to” My experience was what I always expected from a top notch dentist. Truly a fantastic experienced staff and nice atmosphere as soon as you walk in the door. High quality dentistry along with a superior level of teamwork provided will keep you smiling! Go ahead and give Dr. Tassone and New Smiles Dentistry a try and protect one of you most important investments, your teeth!

I’ve been coming to this dentistry for all 22 years of my life. When I was younger, I was actually completely confused when other kids said they hated the dentist since I loved my dentists so much. Needless to say, New Smiles is professional, friendly, understanding, and very inviting. It’s never been uncomfortable for me and every person i see coming in for, and leaving, appointments is always smiling.

I have been a patient of Dr. Tassone since I was very young and couldn’t imagine ever switching dentists. He’s one of the best! Always treating my mom and I with the utmost respect. His staff is so friendly and consistently asking if everything is ok or if you need anything. His new office is very nice with comfortable dental chairs and beautiful pictures of the beach everywhere.

Karen L. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


We left our previous dentist a couple of years ago due to various reasons but mostly because they always pushed services on us that seemed unnecessary. We sort of neglected our dental health for a little while because we were so frustrated. We found Dr. Tassone just this year and have been 100% happy with him and his staff. I’ve needed a couple of crowns replaced, these were quite old. The procedures went great, as great as dental work can go! I know Dr. Tassone has us as patients for life now. I am highly recommending him to my son & his family, and anyone else I know too. The office staff is really nice, friendly, efficient and welcoming. Not all dentist offices have front office staff that are this way at all. The office is bright and you just feel like you are in a good place.

Dr. Tassone and his 5 Star staff have kept 3 generations of my family smiling!! With a focus on long term health, Dr. Tassone’s care and attention to detail continue to exceed all expectations. If you are looking for a new Dental Care Center, New Smiles Dentistry will leave you smiling!!!

Steve Tassone is absolutely phenomenal. I ate some holiday goodies (my bad)and cracked a tooth. In desperation I called Michelle on Monday morning who is an absolute angel and she told me that Steve was on vacation. Steve called me while on vacation referred me to another dentist but I refused because I know and trust Steve. It would just be a few days till I can absolutely smile. I got an appointment for Thursday morning at 8 AM and there was Steve smiling at me but I could not smile back. After an hour and a half I walked out of his office and smiled like I normally do. Steve Michelle and Wendy are so professional and make it so much fun when you’re in a crisis. Wendy is a true professional and so easy to talk while your mouth is wide open! I’ve been seeing them for 26 years and I will continue so my teeth don’t fall out. Thank you Steve Tassone and his whole staff at New Smiles Dentistry

I have been going to New Smiles for years. You arent stuck waiting, which I appreciate. Dr. Steve is very professional and explains in detail what needs to be done without trying to upsell you with things you dont need. He is easy going and the rest of the staff is friendly and accommodating.
You cant go wrong in choosing him as your dentist.

Smart Smile is right between kick boxing and Party City can’t miss it. When scheduling my appointment I was expecting for it to be months out like other practices, but to my surprise it wasn’t! Interior is fresh, vibrant and laughter flows throughout the halls and it was an amazing experience. Having knowledge in the dental field as I’ve worked in ortho I knew what specific questions to ask prior to booking my appointment. I stated that I would like to have the following completed: X-rays, Cleaning, Updated retainers, possibly Invisalign to correct UR8 and trays for whitening! After speaking with Jennifer she assured me that the Dr. would be able to address all my concerns. I arrived to my appointment and after sitting in the chair the Amazing hygienist Jenean (sorry if I butchered your name) asked what I was seeking out of today’s appointment. I explained and to my surprise the Dr. was not available to see me when that was the main importance of my important. I was only disappointed because when leaving work early you have to capitalize on your time to make sure all is taken care of. At the end of the appointment my hygienist apologized and reassured me that on my next visit the Dr. will be present. I look forward to having all questions answered upon my return regarding corrective retainer or Invisalign.
