The only dentist you’ll ever need or want. I found Dr. Vicken just after he opened his office.  I was in need of a root canal and my insurance had just changed.  I was recommended by a coworker and went right away.   I should tell you that my previous dentist was in a really fancy office and passed out regular doses of pain.  He told me that this root canal had to be done by an expert As it was “a hard tooth to get to” and “definitely a specialty job”. So I came to see Dr. Marganian for a standard cleaning during which he asked if I wanted him to do my root canal. I answered “sure” a half an hour later I left with clean teeth and a completed root canal. The best part of it was that there was no pain at all! Since then, my wife and I both visit the office several times a year and they take very good care of my children as well. My kids have seen Dr. Marganian their whole lives and have no anxiety at all about going to the dentist. Imagine that! No matter your issue, this is the dentist you want on your team.

I always enjoy my visit to this dentist. Me and my family have been Dr Vic’s patients for over 10 years and we have not experienced anything we can complain about. The staff are all so friendly, They give everyone undivided attention. Dr Vick’s practice has expanded over the years and there are 3-4 hygienists that work there as well. No matter what type of work you have done Dr Vick makes sure he has also Reviews all work done by others. So if you see someone else you still see him as well. This is a family oriented practice and his wife works with him as well. The office is very clean and he even serves coffee in the lobby. He is an honest dentist and does not over charge. So if you are looking around for a dentist I highly recommend this office. He will even make arrangements to work extra if you have an emergency that can not wait and if he is on vacation he has another dentist that takes his patients so you never have to been in pain

I’ve been going to Dr. Vicken Marganian since even before my dental insurance was covered (about 10 years or so).They have a great staff but most importantly knowledgeable and caring dentists. I always enjoy my visits. If you are looking for an honest, clean and professional dentistry, this is the place to go.

Vicken and his team are absolutely phenomenal. I used to hate the dentist, and to be fair it’s still not my favorite thing on earth but he makes it about as easy and painless as possible. Instead of just sticking a needle in your gums and letting it all out he numbs them, and goes in rounds so even when you need the full numbing you hardly ever feel a thing. His hygienists and office staff are hilarious and super nice, they always have TV running in front of the chair, and they are very organized with phone reminders, and text reminders. You will be hard pressed to find a better Dentist team, and I am always happy to recommend anyone to this wonderful place!

Our whole family has been going to Dr. Marganian for more than 15 years. We have, without fail, found him to be talented and thorough, and every member of his team to be friendly, caring, and professional. Additionally, Dr. Marganian has completed all of our families oral surgical needs, including crowns and root canals with precision and excellence. I had the option of referral to an oral surgeon for my root canal but preferred to have someone we had immense confidence in do it, instead. He took very good care of me.  I am so thankful to call “Dr. Vick” our dentist

I have been seeing Dr. Vick since 2005. A family member needed an emergency procedure and while calling dentists, Dr. Vick was willing to come help us at his office on a Sunday. Over the past 12 years, I have seen him through cleanings, fillings, 2 root canals, 2 porcelain veneers, replacing old (silver) fillings and crowns, and this week he just completed my son’s first dental procedure. I grew up having tons of dental work and orthodontics. I have moved around a bit and I’ve had at least 10 different dentists throughout my lifetime. There is no one I trust in my mouth or near my kids’ mouths more than Dr. Vick. His bedside manner is perfect, procedures are painless, and he’s just genuinely a nice guy. I didn’t see him for TWO years (busy with my babies), and when I returned there was no guilt about missing 4 cleanings. He just said “Hi, it’s great to see you. How are the kids?…” I even went to another dentist once (just because I was working on the other side of LA and it had been so long since I’d had a cleaning). That’s when I realized that I would never see anyone but Dr. Vick again. This other dentist recommended $2500 worth of work (I didn’t have insurance at that time). Also, she didn’t even realize that my front teeth were fake until I told her (Dr. Vick did a phenomenal job on my fake front teeth)! I brought the xrays and results from that dentist to Dr. Vick and he did his own examination, took photos, and xrays.  Finaly he said that he agreed with about 1/3rd of her recommendations! Everyone in Dr. Vick’s office is kind, knowledgeable, and gentle! They really want to make sure that you are comfortable. He is fast too…I can’t believe how quickly I’m in and out of his office! Thank you Dr. Vick!!!

It has been a while i had some work done.. I’ve been tryi g to find a good dentist. Until my friend recommended me to dr viken. He’s such a great person and loaded with energy, him and his employees  this is the secont time i visit this place and i leave with a big smile on my face, attitude wise and tooth wise lol. My first session was cleaning my tooth. I was actually enjoying it cz i was being entertained too i felt bonded with the doctor and his wonderful fun employees!!!

I like being reminded of my appointments and knowing the Dr. and staff are gentle and also efficient. I moved away for a bit and and tried other dental offices but couldn’t get the same friendly and professional treatment elsewhere. They weren’t concerned of my well being and only reminded when the next payment was due…that other office sucked! I’m never going back! I’d rather commute to see Dr. Marganian because I know I’ll be in good hands as well as my family. We like that they have a flexible schedule to suit our busy lifestyle. It’s hard to trust people nowadays so we’re sticking with Dr. Marganian and staff. I strongly recommend Dr. Vicken Marganian for your dental needs.

So happy to write a review for Dr. Marganian at San Gabriel Family Dental Center. HE IS A FANTASTIC, KNOWLEDGEABLE, KIND, PERSONABLE AND PROFESSIONAL dentist AND person. Dr. Margarnian makes sure you are getting the best service whether you are asking questions at the front desk, getting a teeth cleaning or a root canal! I was one of those that would try to avoid the dentist however I no longer have to avoid it going to Dr. Marganian!!!! THANK YOU DOCTOR, ANOUSH, AVIS, JOE……and all the staff! YOU GUYS ROCK!

Hourie M. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Marganian and his staff are absolutely amazing!  They make you forget about why you’re in the office in the first place.  You’ll get a full mouth x-ray, cleaning and a full consultation from Dr. Marganian on your initial visit.  The staff will prepare you a treatment plan and discuss payment options.  You leave the office with an ease of mind.  I highly recommend Dr. Marganian!!

Dr Vicken Marganian D.D.S. is one of the very best in all of Southern California! I live in Henderson NV., he was my dentist when I lived in Southern California. I travel from Nevada just because he’s outstanding and the very best! His staff is amazing and wonderful!
I recommend him to all my friends and family, coworkers…

I went to see Dr. Vicken Marganian about a month ago for my annual exam. He told me I had some cavities. I got half of my fillings done last month and have another apt tomorrow to do the rest. He was very nice and so were the dental hygienists and the front desk/receptionist girls. He is very charismatic and a great dentist. Good doctors are hard to find and I’m glad I found one!! When he put the needle in my gums for my fillings, I literally didn’t feel anything!! His technique is awesome!! He has magic hands or something!! I had a lot of questions about the pricing of the fillings and crowns. He told me the price of everything upfront. I would recommend this dentist to anybody.

My wife had pain in her teeth and is pregnant. The dentist we took her to did x rays, found abscess, and concluded it was too high risk. Instead, his solution was to “do nothing”. Thank God my cousin told me to call Dr. Marganian’s office. They saw her right away, took care of her, and she can’t stop raving about the experience. Thank you Dr. Marganian, I won’t forget it.

Best dentist in Pasadena. I’ve been a customer of Dr. Marganian for about two years now. He, his hygienists and the front desk staff are always friendly and professional. I go to this dentistry every six months for cleanings. I have also done a couple of fillings here. Only positive impressions so far. The only thing I don’t like is that I have to wait too long before I get invited to the hygienist’s office – once I waited for 30 minutes after my appointment’s time. Not unusual for the dental office but it doesn’t mean it’s fine.

Our family loves this dental office! Dr. Vick has been our dentist for over a decade. Dr. Vick made sure I had a beautiful, white smile for my wedding day, my husband became his patient, he cared for me during my pregnancies, he’s seen all my babies for their 1st tooth, and continues to care for us all still. The level of care from the front desk to the exam rooms is top notch.  All the staff are very personable and caring. They feel like friends. I’ve recommended family to the office and will continue to do so.

Last month I was experiencing some tooth pain. I needed to see someone right away and because I recently moved to Southern California I did not have a dentist. I called a few recommendations but was unable to get someone to see me right away. I decided to google dentist near me and I found Dr. Marganian. I immediately called his office and a sweet lady answered. I asked to be seen that evening and to my surprise I was given an appointment for 5:30 on that evening. When I arrived I was immediately acknowledged by the front desk staff with a smile and a warm welcome. First impressions are always lasting impressions. I was given the paperwork to complete and without having to wait a long time Sevanna the dental assistant greeted me with warmth and invited me into the exam room. A few minutes later Dr. Marganian came in with his cheerful disposition and totally put me at ease. I was nervous because back in New York I went to the same dentist for many years and didn’t know what to expect. Both Sevanna and Dr. Marganian took such good care of me that I looked forward to my follow up appointments. Joe the dental hygienist is also amazing. The office is clean, inviting and best of all has an amazing staff. If you’re stuck in a rut like I was just give this office a call and you will be sure to have found a lifelong dentist. Thank you Dr. Marganian and staff.

Best dentist ever! Family like atmosphere and Dr. Vicken M is the best! I started coming here about 6 years ago when I had an emergency, they didn’t take my insurance so I paid cash. Even though they didn’t take my insurance at the time I still kept coming back. The service, friendly staff and just the overall care is amazing! My job finally switched insurance company and I am able to visit him while being covered. I don’t like going to the docs or dentist but they make me feel at ease every time that needle is coming my way. Thank you guys for always making me feel at ease.

So this morning after dealing with a major tooth ache I had to find a dentist.  I hate going to the Dentist however, the atmosphere in this place puts you at ease. The staff is great and Dr. Marganian is amazing, not only is he extremely knowledgeable and great at what he does, I honestly felt  0 pain.  I’ve had the worst experiences with other dentist and have always been skeptical of their work because I have never been to a dentist where I had a good experience.  I really did think that no dentist was a good dentist, until I met Dr. Marganian.  When my 2 co-workers, recommended me to him, I now see that they were not exaggerating about all the the good things they said.  I am soooo happy I have found the perfect dentist.  I am scheduled to see him again next week and I feel no fear for the first time ever.  Thank you Dr. Marganian.

This is the only dentist my daughter knows  and liked and she is now 19 and we have been coming here since 2003. They provide the finest care and the very friendly staff will keep you with a smile. Dr. V is very skilled and knowledgeable in dental industry because in the 11 plus years I have been here he has maintained the best of dental care bar none. If you are in a search for dental care you won’t find a better provider than Dr. Marganian.

I started going to Dr. Marganian about 10 years ago, when my mom recommended him. I’d been going to another office in Pasadena, that unfortunately had a revolving panel of dentists, which I hated. I’d never know which doctor I was going to see on my visits. Dr. Marganian and I “connected” immediately, and I’ve been a patient ever since. The staff is always friendly, and the tastefully designed office is always bright and immaculate.

I am not surprised that all the reviews are positive, however I am surprised that there are not more. I don’t like going to the Doctor or the Dentist but the atmosphere in this place puts you at ease. The staff is great and Dr. Marganian is a master at what he does. For the times I’ve been there, I’ve felt 0 pain and always left feeling better. It’s been a while and I should’ve gone back sooner but it’s time for me to schedule an appointment again.
