Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Hooper’s for the past few years, and without hesitation can say that she is the best dentist I’ve ever had. The practice she has built is top notch not only in the care they provide, but also in the procedures and staff they’ve built across office admin and hygiene, and more recently, the very thorough PPE procedures they’ve put in place due to the pandemic. Historically, I’ve hated the dentist. All the drilling and picking and grating sounds give me panic, and I’ve always felt that I was at the dentist’s mercy to do as they see fit given my lack of true dental knowledge. Dr. Hooper dispels this panic and mistrust, first through her very warm, calm and caring bedside manner. Secondly, she explains issues in easy to understand terms, educating on teeth/mouth anatomy, and outlining the various treatment options and pros/cons of each. And furthermore, as treatment is outlined, she works with her staff to ensure that you are informed prior to service on costs associated as well as insurance details. Thank you Dr. Hooper and PDG for your always phenomenal care.

I lived in Utah for boarding school for a couple years when I was younger in Provo Utah and the doctors office and dentist , (some of them out there ) we’re super super nice and ,like you know, they kind of like treat you like family. its 20 years later now, and ive never encountered anything like that since or gone anywhere where people were even close to that nice or really even very nice at all. (as far as doctors and dentists go) Im 35 years old now I live in Los Angeles these people at premier dental group were nicer than even the people in Utah and I mean they seem to do a great job too. it was my first time there so so far they’re going to great job and I would recommend them to anybody and everybody above anybody and everybody. go try them out youll see.

**They have excellent PPE and safety procedures in place, protecting their patients and their staff.** I’m a new patient at Premiere Dental Group. After not having a great experience at a different dental practice, I was determined to find a place that only provided the best dental care possible. Dr. Hooper and the staff fit the bill. Everyone (from the doctors to the administrative staff) is kind, efficient, and highly skilled. I will confidently refer friends and family to this great dental practice.

Who likes to go to the dentist? I do! Ever since I found Dr. Hooper and her staff! I’m usually nervous when I get teeth work done, but the peeps behind the front desk are so sweet and Dr. Hooper is so professional yet funny! Needless to say, I now look forward to coming in twice a year for my dental check up! Thanks Premiere Dental Group!

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


I’ve been visiting this office for years and love the service! Everyone makes you feel welcome and the kind staff can help alleviate any pre-dentist jitters. For anyone else wondering if you can actually find a quality dentist on Yelp, you totally can! This is how I found Premiere Dental Group and they’ve lived up to the hype!

I’ve been going to Premiere Dental Group for my entire life. When hearing about all of the adjustments they had made due to COVID-19, I thought to myself “I already felt safe and like I was in a very clean environment before – I wonder how they’ll be able to make it even better!” Of course, they went above and beyond to be thorough with checking that patients and employees are safe. Keep doing what you’re doing!

I really quite love this dental group! I went to Dr. Hooper deeply afraid of dentists largely from a very bad experience with a previous dentist who failed to properly medicate the tooth area before drilling. Read… incredibly painful. She took the time to acknowledge my fears and worked to gain my trust by explaining my dental situation and her recommendations. She was calm and confident as she detailed her process. Honestly, I couldn’t have had a better experience. Not for nothing… I was also really happy to support a female-owned practice. They are really, really good at what they do. Don’t go anywhere else. This is not a paid ad. Ha. No, really… it’s not. When it comes to your mouth and dental work. Find good references and go to the best. They’re in that “best” group.

Zuzanna P. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m officially in love with my new dentist Dr. Hooper! I’ve never had the luck of having a dentist who’d take time to explain some of the teeth nuances to me. She’s so thorough and knowledgeable, my teeth are in good hands. And don’t even get me started on the cleaning & xrays! In San Francisco, it always felt rushed, and sometimes brutal. I don’t think my teeth ever looked this clean. The cherry on top? The front desk ladies are the nicest!

Literally the best experience I’ve ever had at a dentist. The staff at reception is super kind and helpful, communication is clear, concise, and timely, and the dentist here are truly magical. The experience is extremely tailored for each patient, and the jokes, entertainment (Netflix while getting work done!), and other things to take your mind off a potentially not-so-enjoyable experience were greatly appreciated. Highly recommend all around!

Premiere Dental – is always a great and pleasurable experience… this last visit – Dr. Hooper – on others, Dr. Newman – both are great, knowledgeable, funny and highly skilled. The staff is equally affable and fantastic to work with and… catch up… It is a family.They have taken very good care of myself and the various mouths i feed for many years…. Yeah. 5*… Always – even when a chomper hurts coming in… Always great care…

Adorable. This is the most friendly dental office I have ever been to! They were right on time, called me by name and were just generally friendly and fun! My dentist, loved her! I seriously thought we should be friends… even with her digging around in my mouth! After my apt. I got follow up hand-written notes thanking me and reminding me of my next apt. Bad News: I have cavities… the first ones of my life Good News: I get to go back and see my new friend the dentist! I even told my sister about them… and she loved her too! NOTE: If you decide to go put down my name as the recommendation, I’ll get a $5 Starbucks card 🙂 haha

Me and my entire family have been coming to Premiere Dental for many years. They are the absolutely best dentists & staff in all the land! Not only is their work excellent every single person who works there is super nice! It is a reflection from the top. Dr. Hooper and Dr. Newman are the most caring and wonderful people in addition to being amazing dentists! Also their network of dental specialist are the best.

Heidi P. from Greenville, SC (Source: Yelp)


Love how funny- Dr. Hooper and receptionists are especially when they talk about how much they love chocolate chip cookies. It makes me feel more comfortable around them, because they are REAL people. Boyfriend tried it- on my call he went to Dr. Hooper and was taken back by how professional and skilled she was with the gum line assessments. Recommendations- when something is a miss in the mouth these dentists are very laid back, no pressure, no “we need to do this now or else” type of attitudes. They make a recommendation and let it be your call. No money hoarders here. Message “Come In…Relax…Learn”

Dr.s Hooper and Newman are the most professional and honest dentist’s I have come to know. They are kind, knowledgeable and understanding of each patients needs. The staff are always friendly and accommodating. Especially Gaby and Angie! I recommend the office to all of my friends and family.

I can’t say enough good things about Premiere Dental Group! I’ve been a client of Dr. Hooper’s for years now. In fact, I’ve referred several colleagues to her. She is top-notch in every aspect! From expert care to bedside manner, I am confident in her professional knowledge & ability, and grateful for her honesty & integrity. Moreover, the entire staff there is stellar! The oral hygentists are gentle and thorough (shout out to Erica), and the front desk crew is simply delightful! If you’re in need of a dentist, look no further than Premiere Dental Group!

Dr. Hooper and Dr. Newman are both amazing dentists. Their state of the art facility is exceptional. The dental hygienists and the support staff are knowledgeable, friendly, and professional. Extensive dental work that used to require several appointments can be done in one appointment. I have had a crown done from start the finish in a couple of hours. This truly is one of the finest offices you can take everyone in your family to for their dental needs.

I’ve been a patient for 10 years. Cannot imagine going anywhere else. Dr. Hooper and the entire staff at Premiere Dental are wonderful. They’re professional, highly skilled and take excellent care of their patients using the latest technology. All this while being kind, warm and fun. Luckily for me, I opted into their text/email reminders so I never miss my appointments. Thanks Premiere Dental!

I was waaay over due with some serious dental issues. Finally went today after losing a cap. Thank God I found Dr Hooper and her staff. From the first call to the moment I left the office with cap recemented, I knew I was blessed to have found this practice. Thorough, warm, friendly and efficient. I cannot recommend Dr Hooper and this practice enough.

Dr. Hooper is simply, THE BEST! She has the best bedside manner, makes me feel comfortable, and always accommodates emergency visits. I recommend her to everyone I know. I’m very picky about my dentist as my mom was my dentist until I moved to LA, so having someone new poke around in my mouth was a change for me. But Dr. Hooper is wonderful, and if you are looking for a new practice, PLEASE visit her. She makes going to the dentist a very pleasant experience. Can’t forget the entire office staff, the hygienists, assistants… EVERYONE there is wonderful.

Juliet Lorenzen (Source: Google)


I cannot tell you how much I enjoy coming here. It really makes my day to spend time with all the kind and caring people who work here, no matter what dental work I’m having! Everyone is so professional and always so thoughtful about their patients. The only drawback is parking, it is quite costly to park in the on-site lot, but I do it because Premier Dental is THAT good!

Amy C. from Grand Haven, MI (Source: Yelp)


My daughter (age 17) and I have both been seeing Dr. Helen Hooper for many years – since my daughter was quite young. She is really wonderful with both of us Her office is run primarily by women and they are all terrific. If you see Dr. Hooper, please let her know I recommended you to her. Amy

Bobby C. from Atlanta, GA (Source: Yelp)


I have found my dentist. (Insert sound effects) Dr. Hooper is awesome! On time or early, every time and zero pain, and I do mean zero. Bring your music on your phone or iPod and sit back and relax, in just a few songs Dr. Hooper will tell you its all done. The front desk ladies (Linda, Gabby and Tabby) are an absolute joy to work with, They are all super friendly and always helpful. It turns out I don’t really need all the work my last dentist tried to tell me I needed. So glad I waited, and asked around. A friend told me this was the best office in LA and now I know why.

Mel C. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is an amazing group of dentists and hygienists in a clean & modern office. I’ve been going to see Dr. Hooper and her staff for over 3 years now and am always so pleased at the professional, kind, gentle, and personable approach they take to caring for their patients. Be prepared to be a fan of going to the dentist after your appointment with this group!

Kelley B. from Flower Mound, TX (Source: Yelp)


So you know it’s a five star review when you return home from getting a filling, and your first thought is “wow, I so need to yelp this”. Yep, straight from the dentist chair to the computer. Dr. Hooper and the entire office staff are amazing! So great, friendly, and professional with flawless results. I have been to Dr. Hooper several times now, and not only is she a perfectionist and produces a smart smile, but she really cares. Every time I come in, she not only remembers details like where I work and to ask about my sister’s job interview, but last week told me I converted her into a Yelp user as well. It’s kind of like catching up with old friends, if your old friend had a drill 😛 Best – No pain at all. Constant reassurance. Good conversation (so its a bit one-sided with all the instruments in your mouth!). Flawless results (she even checks to make sure you can floss perfectly on the tooth she is working on or corrects it). CARING. Also easy to schedule an appointment. I just can’t say enough about how great they all are!

I love and respect Dr. Helen Hooper as my dentist. I don’t have dental insurance and I have been blessed with healthy teeth and I trust that Dr. Hooper provides the best preventative maintenance dental care for me. The dental hygienists and staff are nice and friendly. My teeth feel fabulously clean and fresh every time. Dr. Hooper values my teeth and my smile as much as I do! The ambiance of the office is fresh, clean and modern with a calming beach theme that fits so well with the adjacent marina. She is definitely worth the drive to Marina Del Rey. Check out Premiere Dental Group. Trust!! You will love it!

I’ve been going to Premiere Dental Group since I was in high school and have loved it ever since. Everyone is beyond friendly and very professional. They even remember the smallest details about your life that even you yourself may have forgotten. The people and the service is what makes Premiere Dental Group shine like my teeth that they take great care of!

Ryan U. from Northeast Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is great. I have never seen a festival of estrogen that gets along so well. You can really tell that they have a great work culture of respect, fun, teamwork, and above all, smiles. I give them a 5 star rating cause they have great service and each time I go in there, they have me cracking up.

I’ve been going Premiere Dental Group for about 6 years! Dr. Hooper and the staff are amazing. The service is always top notch and the staff is always kind and helpful. I have meetings that pop-up sometimes and they’re very accommodating with re-scheduling. When you do get in the chair, they do everything they can to make you comfortable–they even have iPads and headphones on the chairs so you can watch Netflix or listen to your favorite music. Thanks for always taking care of my pearly whites Dr. Hooper!

Sarah O. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient with Premiere Dental for more than 10 years, and I am certain of this: The patients are lucky to have Dr. Hooper and the AMAZING professionals at Premiere Dental. I used to be afraid of the dentist. Now, I actually look forward to going! You won’t find a nicer group of caring, trustworthy and committed people. I’ve sent at least a dozen people to Premiere over the years, and every single one thanked me for it. They are simply the best!

I’ve been a patient for over 20 years and even though I moved over 30 miles away from the office, I keep going back. My husband and kids are longtime patients as well. Dr. Hooper and Dr. Newman are both excellent dentists who go the extra mile to cater to the unique needs of my family. The team of receptionists is the best — friendly, kind and patient, especially when it comes to scheduling. The hygienists and assistants are very professional, gentle and personable. If you’re looking for a great dentist your search is over.

I know…who rates a trip to the dentist as a five star experience? Well, when it comes to Dr. Hooper and her staff it’s a rating well earned. There’s virtually no waiting when you arrive and the care you get from cleanings to more complex dental work is the best I’ve ever experienced. Why should you believe me? Well, I moved to Florida from Santa Monica back 2016, and I still fly back to LA for my dental care (3 times so far). Premiere Dental is with the trip.

Barbara Leifer (Source: Google)


I can’t speak more highly of Dr. Helen Hooper and the Premiere Dental Group. Dr. Hooper’s warmth, genuine caring and superb skills make dental visits a much less stressful experience. The office staff is polite, competent, and caring; they never fail to be patient and courteous. In the almost ten years I have been going here, I have never had less than a positive experience. Ten stars!

This office is the best! The dentists, hygienists and staff are all so amazing, friendly and caring. They take their time to assure you’re informed about your treatment and comfortable through it all. You always hear people say they hate going to the dentist, maybe they’re just going to the wrong one, because my experiences have all been wonderful! I look forward to my next visit.
