Best dentist I have been to! I haven’t found a good dentist till now. Staff is very welcoming and made sure I was comfortable the entire time. Dr. Edalat is the best and he excplained everything I needed in steps and made sure he answered every question I had. Will definitely recommend this office to my friends and family.

I do not feel I could have found a better dentist. Talk about a great first office visit! Wonderful staff and office. The doctor spent a lot of time thoroughly explaining everything. I feel that this doctor really cares for the well-being of his patients! Thank you Dr Edalat!

To me fo my first experience, they seem very genuine and concerned about teeth and hygiene. Conversation is fun and as a staff seem very comfortable and trusting of one another.

Mojdeh R. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommended. I have always been afraid of getting dental work done. I have to say my root canal with Dr. Edalat was absolutely painless. My whole experience at the office was unlike any experience I’ve had in the past. Staff at the office were very friendly and that definitely made me feel more comfortable going into the treatment. I have now found my dentist for life ! Thank you Dr. Edalat.

I never thought I’d ever look forward to going to the dentist! I absolutely love Dr. Edalat’s office! Dr. Poria Edalat is so friendly, knowledgeable and personable! I love that he takes his time to listen to your concerns and thoroughly answers any questions you have. I also appreciate that he seems to have a conservative approach when it comes to your oral/dental health. I promise I am not exaggerating! Customer service is excellent, and everyone is extremely efficient here. I’ve never had to wait longer than 5 minutes for my appointment.If you’re new to the LA area or just looking for a new dentist, I can’t express how much I love and recommend Dr. Edalat. I’m already looking forward to my next visit!

Omid H. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


What an experience. Just started going here recently and I am very happy with my decision. The staff is friendly, very informative, and the wait time is minimal. I definitely recommend this place! Thanks Dr. Edalat and staff!

L. J. from Huntington Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Edalat couldn’t be more recommended since he corrected a filling done by prior dentist.  The filling was too deep and kept me from biting down correctly.  Since he made the change, I can eat properly.  Thank you Doctor!

I avoided going to the dentist for 5 years due to a phobia and bad experiences in the past. I finally came here on the recommendation of a neighbor and I’m so glad that I did. Dr. Poria Edalat is a very patient, kind and skilled provider. He didn’t try to sell me on any unnecessary procedures, and I appreciated his conservative approach to treatment (he was willing to try filling on a deep cavity instead of going for a root canal treatment). I am finally getting over my phobia! Thank you Dr E!

Erica V. from Highland Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


The doctor was awesome!!! When it comes to the dentist I’m beyond petrified! But I must say that the doctor did an awesome job ! The staff is great friendly and make u feel comfortable!! I would recommend everyone here !! Thank u every one for making me feel comfortable!!! If anyone need a great dentist go to Monterey dental !!! You won’t regret it !

Pouriya E. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is ace. I was looking for a new dentist. I did some internet research and this place looked great because they had pictures of their team on their website. Turns out… they are awesome! Each person on staff was kind, polite, and helpful when ever I had a question. Turns out I needed 4 crowns! They worked my appointments in before I had to travel and did a free follow up to adjust my bite. Also, they can print crowns right in the office so they make sure it fits, matches your teeth, and you don’t have to wait for 2 weeks. They even sent a lovely handwritten thank you card to my house after my first visit.

Sean T. from Northeast Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


So here’s the thing… I’m no spring chicken. For 25 years I’ve had an extreme fear of seeing a dentist. When I was 24 I went to a noted dental office in Hollywood. Great rep. etc. However, they filled my mouth with metal, they were very invasive and aggressive, and the result was a deadly abscess. The work was done on a Friday so I spent the weekend in so much pain I had to go to the emergency room. My blood was poisoned and they said I probably wouldn’t have made it until Monday. I returned to the same dentist only to have them hold me down and use a long needle to take care of the issue. I ask you… would you ever see another dentist? Not me. All that changed earlier this year.  So did my self esteem. Why? Because they were more like therapists than your average garden variety dental staff. I was embarrassed by how I allowed this phobia to control my life and my ability to smile. It only took a few inexpensive visits to make me whole again; both mentally and in terms of my overall health. Everyone has noticed a difference but they can’t quite put their finger on what brought on this notable change. I guess with Yelp the secret is out!

Vicky P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great dental service! We were able to make an appointment the same day we called and have already set up future appointments. The appointment itself did not take long and all the employees were friendly. I would definitely recommend this location to a friend or family.

Mandana J. from Highland Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very clean office. Staff are Super friendly and make you feel welcome. I have seen many dentist in my life time and I can with ease say that Dr Edalat has been my favorite. He takes his time to explain and I had tons of questions and he sat and listened and answered. On my way out I booked an Appointment for my daughter and my husband as well. See you guys soon. 🙂

Eva N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best experience I’ve ever had at the dentist! I’ve had the biggest fear to go to the dentist for more than 10 years, and my teeth are the result of that. They need a lot of work, but I have found the perfect dentist for that. I feel very safe and I trust the entire team 100 %. They are all so sweet and considerate, and they explain everything in details, to make sure I understand what is about to happen. I’m super embarrassed of my teeth, and I still have a lot of appointments to go, but I can’t wait to see the final result – hopefully just in time for my wedding. I am definitely going to recommend Monterey Hills Dental to everyone I know!

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


I really appreciate the people who work at Monterey Hills Dental. The front desk staff is very courteous, friendly and professional.The Doctors are knowledgeable, patient and also friendly. I recently had oral surgery there and the doctor was very quick and efficient, the nurse was so  amazing with helping me stay calm. I appreciate that so much because I’ve had such terrible experiences in the past which have caused me an immense amount of anxiety about dental work. I truly feel safe there.

Tammy A. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


I originally was Dr Lewzuchs patient and recently met The new doctor, Dr Edalat. He were very thorough, gentle and took his time . I feel very comfortable being under his care and will be continuing coming to this amazing office.

Rio R. from Porter Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love our new dental office! I have 3 kids and I am very careful to make sure I got the right dental office, based on some previous bad ones. I did my research and actually went and visited them myself the first time to make sure it was good for my kids. As soon as I entered there was a friendly staff greeting me and I signed in and was asked to wait few minutes for the doctor. I was 10 min early so I sat down and waited. Right on time, I was asked to come in and went to sit down in one of the dental chairs. From there I got to meet Dr Edalat, what a gentleman!! we chatted for little and I explained to him Why I was there. Fast forward, I took my kids there and the experience was amazing, kids were happy and doctor Edalat was gentle and very kid friendly. Kids like him as well. I scheduled our next dental appointment on the way out. Everything was just great, I had no negative experience. Highly recommend this dental office and if you have kids don’t think twice this is the dental office you want to take them to!

I am sure there are people like me out there that this review will help. I’ll try to keep it brief. I had a traumatic dental experience when I was 14 due to not being numb. After that, just thinking about going to a dentist made me cry. I’m now 26 and my teeth were bad enough that my desire to get them fixed trumped my phobia of dentists and their drills. I’ve spent the last 3 years reading reviews online looking for the Los Angeles dentist I would eventually go to when I worked up the courage or when the pain became too unbearable. Dr. Edalat stood out because he consistently received great review after great review. I figured he’s got to be pretty good it people are giving him 5 stars after he had drilled in their months. I finally bit the bullet and called for an appointment. To my shock, the woman on the phone said I could come in the same day. Mentally, I wasn’t prepared for that but I went anyway. 2 hours after calling to make the appointment, I was in the chair with Dr. Edalat getting a temporary crown. It didn’t hurt at all. I didn’t even feel it when he gave me a shot of Novocain. I was proud of myself for even going to a dentist but I was kinda kicking myself for putting it off for so long, and for being terrified of something that ended up being pleasant and over before I knew it. I was thinking about was I was going to have for dinner while he was drilling my tooth. Today I had a root canal done on my worst tooth. It didn’t hurt either. The only uncomfortable part was having to keep my mouth open the entire time. I’m almost in shock by how painless my experience at this dental office has been. This is the exact opposite of the experience I had when I was in. I’ve been worked on by all 3 doctors here, and they’re all great. I’ve already recommended this place to two of my coworkers and I’ll continue recommending him to anyone that hints they need some dental work. The price (in uninsured) is wayyy less than what I thought I would have to pay (which was also part of the reason I’ve been putting off getting my teeth fixed). I know the feeling of thinking your teeth are so bad the dentist will shame you when you finally to go to one. I know the feeling of being so afraid of the drills that you tense up anytime you hear a power tool. I know the feeling of having to keep floss picks in your purse so you can keep the holes in your teeth clear. I just love, love, LOVE this place and that’s something that I never thought I would say about a dentist. I’m leaving this review in hopes that someone like me will read it and pick up the phone to do the right thing for themselves. I know the struggle of not being able to chew on both sides of your mouth. I’ve spent 10 years chewing on one side and not by choice. I can relate to any of you that think your teeth are a disaster or those of you that are terribly afraid of dentists in general. I can relate because I was you 2 weeks ago. Now I’ve had a friggin root canal and I’m a few more appointments here away from having perfect teeth. I promise you, you have nothing to worry about at this dentist and you will be so happy when you leave here. There is a reason why Dr. Poria Edalat has so many 5-star reviews. Your only regret after coming here will be having not come sooner.

This review isn’t meant for just Dr. Edalat, but his entire staff as well. In a city like Los Angeles, it’s seldom you come across the utmost courteous service, until you walk in the doors of Monterey hills dental. After several visits to this location, I’d be hard-pressed to say there’s a better group in the area, or in the city in general. In terms of what I got, I had wisdom teeth pulled and some fillings; all done under 30 minutes. No trouble, no fuss. Quick and painless. The keyword here is painless. Dr. Edalat and his staff made me feel quite comfortable going in. I’m not one to shy away from pain, so people who are more sensitive to such will feel incredibly safe in the hands of Dr. Edalat. There’s a reason why Dr. Edalat is seeing patients left and right. He makes you feel at home! He remembers details of my life that I don’t even remember.With so many patients, that’s quite a feat. He’s a warm and funny guy, and you can trust him with the pristine health of your teeth. If Monterey hills dental isn’t rated #1 on Yelp or any site, then they definitely should be. If I ever need oral care or anything of the sort, you can guarantee I’ll be going to Edalat.

They charge me $25 for a one time deductible every year. That’s ridiculous! I have full dental insurance which covers my annual teeth cleaning and I shouldn’t pay a cent! Perhaps they could’ve told me first before they cleaned my teeth so I wouldnt feel cheated! In addition, the dental assistant that did my x-rays and polish my teeth was terrible! She kept getting interrupted during my process by someone new. She should’ve waited until she’s done with me before you move on to other stuff. I am definitely disappointee because this place looked promising. Too bad, I’m never coming back here again!!*****UPDATE! 7/26/19*****Dr. Edalat have been nothing but kind and caring to his patients. After writing the above review, he immediately reached out to apologized for the mixed up clerical error. He invited me to come back to his office to get my deductible refund and also offered an in house bleaching for me. Overall, I really appreciate the effort he puts in to resolve my issue and has won my trust to come back for my dental needs. Thank you very much!!

An amazing experience every single time! In a world where we know that the dentist is the last place a person would choose to go, I would actually WILLINGLY make the trip again and again. From the initial contact making the appointment, I knew that the focus of this office was accurate and professional interactions. Dr. Edalat’s office is very easy to locate and has plenty of FREE parking availability. Upon entering, you will quickly notice the aesthetics of the waiting area, the amazing quality of customer service, and the overall feel of great vibes throughout his practice. The receptionist is very friendly and actually addresses you by your name. Dr. Edalat, I must tell you that at the completion of every one of my visits, I have walked away with the utmost satisfaction and appreciation for your services. It isn’t hard to see that you work so hard in an effort to ensure that each and every one of your patients leave your office with a smile.

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


I’ve been going to Monterey Hills Dental for the last couple of years and can honestly say its the best dental experience that I’ve ever had. Dr. Lewczuk and his staff were always extremely friendly and knowledgeable, ready to answer any questions that arise. Recently, Dr Lewczuk has retired and Dr. Edalat has taken over the practice. I will admit that I was at first hesitant with the thought of a new dentist (I really liked Dr. Lewczuk!). With that being said I was more than impressed by Dr. Edalat’s cheery, professional mannor. After he explained that I needed to have a cavity filled I decided to do it while I was there at the office instead of rescheduling. I’m glad I did because I’ve never had a filling go so smoothly or so quickly! Still in disbelief how little time Dr. Edalat took to complete the procedure.  Fortunately Dr. Lewczuk’s support staff remains at the office to make sure that all patients are taken care of. Thank you guys for everything, see you in 6 months!

I’ve been coming here for a few years. The management has changed but the personalities, professional image and customer service is exceptional. Atmoshere calm, recently updated and service animal friendly.. I’ve had cleaning, root canal and been treated with respect the whole time. Prices are the best for services rendered. Payment options available as well.     Will be a returning client.

Benjamin O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Truly glad I discovered this dental office, Dr. Edalat is such a great doctor and very nice. The office is sparkling clean and the staff is always welcoming. I’ll be bringing my kids here when I have kids lol. Yes I recommend this dental office.

Emily P. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


At first I was saddened to hear about the change in ownership at this office.  I heard about this office from a friend who was a patient here under the care of the previous dentist so naturally I was looking forward to being seen by him. However, to my pleasant surprise, I had a great experience during my first appointment.  I was greeted by a friendly receptionist and was given the forms to be filled out.  The transition from the font office to me being seated was quick and seamless.  When sat down I was greeted by Dr. Edalat who was such a nice and charming dentist who was very knowledgable and addressed all my conerns in a way I could understand.  For once I really felt that my dentist had a genuine concern for my mouth health, something that is rare to find these days.  Unfortunately I had some cavities but (never thought I would say this) I am looking forward to my appointment with the Dentist.. Highly Recommend!

Matthew M. from Northeast Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this dental office since I was a child. The staff has always been friendly and kind to my family. Dr. Lewczuk was always personal and friendly, with his retirement, a new general dentist would come in. My first appointment with Dr. Peoria Edalat, the new general dentist, was professional and time sufficient. He answered all questions with a clear and direct answer ( which is great!). Sandra and Marlyn, are still the same amazing staff that are helpful and friendly. They are personal in there interactions with all those who enter. Marlyn asked about my schooling and Sandra asked about my family. They both made me feel welcomed, a great refreshing feeling. If you are looking for a new Dental office, I urge you to consider Monterey Hills Dental.

Victoria C. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


What an awesome dentist Dr Edalat is. Talk about a great human being, he is so nice and really took his time to answer my questions (I was full of questions l) do to the fact that it was my first time at a dentist in a while. If you live nearby-worth a try. I got my exam and cleaning done and will be back next week for fillings. Thank you Dr Edalat and the staff for making my visit pleasant. My goal is to save money and get veneers done in next few months as I am getting married this summer and want that hollywood smile like the picture below.

Kendall J. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is the best Dentist I’ve ever  been to the new Dentist are fantastic Dr. Poria Edalat did a root canal and a crown he was great. I Feel and and look like a new person…The ladies in the office Sandra and Marlyn are very helpful and make sure you are comfortable and Happy while you are in their care i recommend them to everyone….once again thank you Monterey Dental  you are the best..

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


I just moved to this area and I was looking for a new dentist, and I found this office. I was greeted by Sandra in the front. She was very helpful and she explained everything to me about my dental insurance (at my last dental office the front was never this helpful). She got me an appointment the SAME DAY for my exam and cleaning. Dr Edalat was the dentist and he is very good! He went over my xrays with me, and he actually showed me what needed to be done. I also felt like he was very conservative, I have never had a dentist say to “watch” things. He explained some changes I can do at home to help improve and maybe we did not have to treat it! He was so caring, but still straight to the point. He did not make me feel bad about anything, rather he gave me good advised and realistic expectations. One week after my exam I had a visit for my filling. I have to say that was the BEST shot I ever got from a dentist. I did not feel (or taste) a thing! After that the procedure was fast and painless. I would recommend him to my friends and family for sure. I am so glad I stopped by this office, I am sure I will be a lifetime patient.

Nancy B. from Monrovia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am very pleased with Monterey Hills Dental. I was greeted by their friendly staff, Sandra and Marlene. My front tooth chipped after a minor accident and Dr Edalat listened to my concern and gave me options of how to conservatively and esthetically fix the fracture. I got my cleaning and tooth fixed and I am beyond pleased with the result. I can smile again!!! I highly recommend Monterey Hills Dental and Dr. Edalat without hesitation.

Joanna H. from Paramount, CA (Source: Yelp)


From the moment they answered the phone to my procedure I must say their customer service, cleanliness, professionalism and technology is AWESOME!!!!!!! I was soo nervous and I am soo happy! And have I mentioned they are very flexible? Bringing my family this week! Thank you to staff and dr. Very satisfied!

Like many people, I was nervous about going to the dentist after about 2 years of procrastination. Happy to say the experience was great, watched some scenes from Gremlins while I waited, the assistant was very friendly. Dr. Poria Edalat seemed very professional and welcoming, told me I had a cavity which needed filling, wasn’t pressured to get any unnecessary work done. Also got a deep cleaning which was quick and painless. Great space, will be coming back. Take care of your teeth, they’re the only ones you’ve got!

Graciela F. from Eagle Rock, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been a long time that I’ve visited a dental office. I was scared and embarrassed, but the dentists assistant and the dentist made it very comfortable and they explained everything with great detail. I was a bit confused that I didn’t get a cleaning with my visits. I do have work to get done so maybe that will come in the future.I recommended this location for friendly staff and professionalism.

Tara S. from Palm Springs, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just moved to this area and am so happy with Dr. Edalat and the staff here! I used to go to another dentist office that was further and after speaking to the dentist there he told me his family member has an office near me! Surprise, surprise the Edalat dentists are all great. The staff are very friendly and pleasant and the supplies and furniture are all clean and modern! Dr. Edalat is very nice, courteous and puts you at ease. Also parking is so easy and the area is very accessible. I work at USC so the drive was very quick and easy 🙂 Looks like many of the previous reviews are outdated. I don’t believe “Dr. L” or “Dr. William” work here anymore.
