Dr. Kurimoto is a great dentist.  He and his staff treat you like family.  When I come in for my six-month cleaning, Dr. Kurimoto remembers our whole conversation from six months prior and asks all about my travels and my family.  He is extremely knowledgeable when answering any questions I might put forth about my teeth and gums.  His staff takes their lead from him and are just as kind, caring and very gentle while working on my mouth.

I cannot thank this place enough for taking such great care of my teeth!! For many many years I neglected to go see a dentist because of my fear and all of the terrible experiences from the past… Finally, with recommendation from several people, I started coming here for both general dental treatment and teeth cleaning, and this place completely changed my perspective. They are so good at what they do and now I love going to the dentist 🙂 This place is by far incomparable from all of the dentists I’ve visited, both the dentist and the dental hygienist are caring and very informative about the treatments. I highly recommend it!

I can’t begin to tell you what a fantastic dentist Dr Chris is! I’ve been his patient for about 8 years and he’s the best dentist I’ve ever seen. He’s very detailed and explains everything about procedures. I tell all my friends and acquaintances about him, he’s just that good. I like the fact that there’s plenty of street parking as well as in the lot, the office is very comfortably decorated. The staff puts you at ease the moment you walk in the door. I know you will just as pleased as I have been.

Thanks to your site (Yelp), I was able to find Dr. Kurimoto last year.  My 88 year old mother was in dire need to have her upper dentures adjusted.  Due to her illness, she had loss quite a bit of weight, causing her dentures to be loose.  Dr. Kurimoto did an amazing job fixing the problem.  Lupe, at the front desk is the sweetest too.  I now take my entire family for our dental needs (cleaning, cavities, & such). They’re all very pleased!

Making an appointment to this office was very easy and they are open on Fridays and Saturdays -the days I am available. The staff are nice, friendly and helpful. The dentist was very knowledgeable to her profession and she was very nice. She had no available assistant at that time and she did all the works to me without a problem. I know I’ll be there for a long time.

Zac U. from McKinney, TX (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been absolutely and irrevocably terrified by the evil dentist, however Dr. Kurimoto helps ease the tension with his friendly demeanor and deft hand. He is the type of person that wants to make you comfortable so feel free to be open about what bothers you or scares you. Last BUT NOT LEAST, I want to exclaim from the heavens how bloody brilliant Mizu is at cleaning teeth! Not only that but she is so incredibly nice.

Meilani K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to see Dr. Kurimoto for a general teeth cleaning. I only had to wait a few minutes past my appointment time. His office is clean, and the front desk is very nice. I was pleasantly surprised when Dr. Kurimoto cleaned my own teeth instead of the hygienist. He was quick but thorough, and VERY friendly. He even gave me a bunch of recommendations for local eateries. Highly recommend!

M. S. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kurimoto is an excellent dentist! i am so relieved and blessed to have found him and his wonderful staff. every procedure I’ve had done has been painless -and all the fears i had about dentists beforehand, just dissipated. he fixed my teeth, my confidence and self-esteem:). so so grateful. i will recommend him to everyone:) thank you so much for all that you do to help people!

Connie P. from San Jacinto, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Christopher Kurimoto is the BEST dentist. We have been patients for over six years. My husband, myself and my sister have never been disappointed with their professional services. We live over 100 from Glendale but happily make the trip from San Jacinto twice a year for our cleanings. If we ever have an emergency we call and they ALWAYS try to accommodate our needs. The office staff, especially Lupe are very nice. Thank you all for your pleasant, efficient, professional personal services. You all contribute something to making our teeth happy! Sincerely, Connie and George Eckmann

Lucky V. from Philadelphia, PA (Source: Yelp)


Been seeing Dr Kurimoto on off 7-8 years. I had horror stories of dentists claiming I had multiple cavities and my crown was falling out. He’s honest and will tell you what you need-not oversell anything to make more $. I trust Dr Kurimoto with my major work. I had an explosion in my mouth from a deep cavity close to the nerve and I went in for emergency work, a root canal, and crown. He worked with me and was very fair. Recently moved out of state and came back, had a cleaning in Orange County. They claimed I needed Invisalign because it would affect my jawline longterm. I drove up to see him recently, his opinion was I didn’t need it and again they’re trying to oversell. He even made me a mouthguard for sports for free and gave me impressions of my mouth to take with me wherever I end up.

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


I have been going to Dr. Kurimoto for around 2 years now. I am always hesitant about dentists due to previous experiences of being ripped off. With Dr. Kurimoto, I have never been asked to do any unnecessary procedures. He has always been up-front and honest. His staff is also professional and nice. When my insurance changed (due to a change of work), I made sure I selected a plan that uses Dr. Kurimoto. Really a great dentist and all around great guy!

Rina C. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


great dentist. very nice and professional. I am a extremely nervous patient but he makes me feel at ease. office is clean and there’s tv in the treatment room so it will take your mind off. he always have some treats at the counter. so I can get a little reward before I leave for being brave enough to see a dentist. crown work is amazing. teeth cleaning is very thorough.

Melon F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Kurimoto is an excellent dentist.  I would highly recommend his practice to anyone looking — my teeth have never looked or felt better since I started seeing him.  I have had several emergencies and he always makes time to see me and take care of whatever it is.  Lupe and the rest of the team there are all so nice great at their jobs; I always feel comfortable and in the best hands. My husband and I are both so happy to have found him!

Jill P. from Halesite, NY (Source: Yelp)


Been a patient of Dr. Kurimoto’s for at least a few years now and out of ALL the dentists I have been to in the LA area (probably 10 or so), he is BY FAR the best. Never once do I feel he is trying to upsell me on an unnecessary procedure or a product, so I absolutely trust him when he says something needs to be done. I had two different dentists tell me a tooth (one of my front ones) needed to come out since a popcorn hull got stuck in it and killed it, that it would turn black and fall out if I didn’t remove it and replace it with a new one, but then of course I needed braces to correct the crowding first since there wasn’t enough room for a new full-sized tooth, etc. etc. I sought a third opinion on the tooth. Dr. K told me the tooth might never turn black and fall out, so he didn’t see why we should do anything to it until absolutely necessary. My kind of dentist. They are also great with my 4 year old who seems to have inherited her Grandma’s lousy cavity-prone teeth. The hygienists are always friendly, thorough and fast. The office is clean and lovely. The receptionists have always been fantastic. To the guy “Christin” who got his name spelled incorrectly a few times – dude, lighten up. You have an odd name. I’m sure you’re sick of it being misspelled by now, but that’s not her fault. And you’re missing out on the rare, quality dentist because of your pettiness. (Lupe’s not doing your dental work, anyway!)

Thomas R. from Jacksonville, FL (Source: Yelp)


I feel very lucky to have found Dr. Kurimoto.  His office is immaculate, he has all of the latest technology, his assistants are exceptional, and best of all, he’s a caring and thorough dentist.  I’ve been to other dentists in the LA area who seem to only be concerned with padding their wallets.  Dr. Kurimoto isn’t like that.  He’s genuinely concerned with the dental health of his patients.  He will be the only dentist I’ll see as long as I live within driving distance of his office.  Very highly recommended.

Zeb S. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


2 friends recommended Christopher and as any parent will experience, we were a bit apprehensive towards our 4 year old daughter’s first cavity filling. I explained to Christopher that I wanted to avoid any kinds of drugs if possible. My wife and I feel strongly towards not using drugs whenever possible. Christopher listened to my considerations and clarified to ensure he understood. He agreed that when possible he also avoids their use. The filling went quite well, no drugs were used. He and his assistant were gentle and quick and my daughter did just fine. He recommended the best way to indoctrinate my daughter so she would be ready for a trickier filling on our next visit, which I very much appreciated. He is concerned for the patient in his chair rather than what they represent and that’s where we decided we loved him. Overall we felt he was awesome! Would recommend anyone and everyone to him. Great individual to work with and great with kids and takes time to explain what he is doing in terms they can understand. Thank you Christopher.

Vikki G. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kurimoto is a great dentist.  Annik is a fabulous hygienist.  The office is well managed by Lupe; it is also clean, comfortable and has great reading material.   Going to the dentist is suppose to be painful, but visiting Dr. Kurimoto’s office is a positive experience because he is patient and very gentle.  I highly recommend his office. In addition to the kudos above, he offers free parking.  There are many dentists on Brand Boulevard in Glendale, and I have seen two other dentists.  Save yourself time and money and start with Dr. Kurimoto first.  You will not be disappointed and your teeth will be happy!  My husband and I are so devoted that we drove all the way up from the South Bay for our dental appointments – that’s two hours round trip!  But according to Dr. Kurimoto, he has a loyal following as far as Ojai.  I’m not surprised.

Janice D. from West Hartford, CT (Source: Yelp)


I just saw a bit of a negative review on Dr. Kurimoto, so decided to write today.  My husband and I have been patients of Dr. Chris for years, and his office and staff are professional, friendly and so easy to work with for me and my busy schedule. I agree with others that all services are provided in a manner that makes you want to go to the dentist. Dr. Chris does NOT look for things to do to you; he advises on your situation and provides options, many times saying “you are really fine, nothing needs to be done”.  He is up to date on all things related to dentistry, his equipment is state of the art, and he has great doctors and specialists to refer you to if needed. I recently had to have a tooth pulled and implant done, and couldn’t be happier with his referral to Dr. Babadjanian (a review for another day – GREAT!). When insurance wasn’t working correctly between the two billings, Dr. Chris wouldn’t charge me until he could get the out of pocket expense corrected – that is really going the distance and I am a fan for life of Dr. Kurimoto and his practice.

I’ve been going to see Dr. Kurimoto for several years. I get my check-ups and twice yearly cleanings. He’s friendly and has never pushed unnecessary work, contrary to a couple of dental offices in downtown Glendale. I don’t have dental insurance, but he gives me the insurance group rates. Staff is also great. Only downside for the cleanings is that they get booked really quickly. I would totally recommend him!

Don W. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just had my second visit with Chris and he’s an amazing dentist and has a very personable staff.  I especially enjoy his candor, either with me or with his other clients.  He truly cares about his patients and their oral health.  I have an extremely busy, busy life and he actually made the time for me today as a drop-in patient.  Who else does that?!?! Brilliant I say!  Again, his professionalism, approach to his patients, and his staff are simply above par – and I’ve had a few dentists over the years.  This guy is a keeper and I hope to have him continue with me into my retirement!

Edd B. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not sure who the 2-star reviewer is,but I’ve been a patient of Dr.Kurimoto for 8 years and I still have most of my silver fillings. When I asked him if they needed to be replaced, he always advised me against it. In fact, he told me that it is not worth drilling on the tooth if it is not needed, like when it breaks or there is a cavity. My family and I appreciate Dr. Kurimoto’s honesty. We have experienced a lot of dentists who recommend tons of dental work, but Dr. Kurimoto does not try to pad his wallet. I have not needed more than cleaning in years. The office is great, and the staff are genuinely nice. Highly recommended!

John P. from Simi Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


The first thing that you will notice when walking in is how little it seems you are in a dentist’s office and how much the atmosphere seems like a comfortable, casual living room. This theme permeates everything about the experience. – The receptionist is fun, happy and a delight to speak with, setting you at ease. For those who hate going to the dentist, this is a real help! – Doctor Chris is friendly, easy-going, and speaks in non-technical terms, taking the mystery out of what the dentist is doing to you. – The staff is all friendly and knowledgeable, the equipment is modern and in good condition, and they make great use of technology – digital xRays that use very low radiation. – And most important to me, they do not push unnecessary procedures on me. I can trust that the work they recommend is for my best health and not to pad the doctor’s wallet. Dr. Chris is one of the most honest, genuine people who I have met in this profession. I travel about 35 miles from home to visit this guy and I think that every mile there is worth it. I highly recommend everything about this dentist!

The absolute most professional office and best service I’ve experienced anywhere. Been going to Dr. Tereza’s office for years and she has always gone above and beyond to provide the best possible care. Very humble, understanding, knowledgeable, and always goes out of her way to answer any questions or concerns. I highly recommend her to anybody looking for quality care and trust her with all my dental needs!

Rene K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Cannot speak as highly as I would like to because words don’t describe my satisfaction. Dr. Kurimoto and his staff are honestly wonderful and they make going to the dentist enjoyable, literally. Delicate, non evasive, effective, and fast!  I have been going to Dr Kurimoto’s office regularly for about 3 years now and I love it. Literally unless I’m moving out of state, hands down he owns my business. Thank you all for such a wonderful experience! 10/10 every time I go. See you guys for my next appt!

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


Dr. Kurimoto and his team and amazing. I had to stop going because it was like being in a long distance relationship- driving from Santa Monica to Glendale was just not working out. I wish they had weekend hours, but I totally get it. If I ever move that direction, I’ll be back! In all seriousness, Doc is amazing. So friendly, so professional and so honest. I recently came from a shady dentist in the valley who told me I had 4 cavities and had a very traumatic teeth cleaning cost. But Dr. Kurimoto told me I didn’t have any cavities and I was just fine! I actually look forward to getting my teeth cleaned now. Thanks so much to Dr. Kurimoto and his team! I’ll miss you!!!

Rachel Q. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kurimoto is an AWESOME dentist. I went to him like 3 years ago and then had a horrible experience at Plaza Dental (only went to them for the location and convenience). First, I emailed him with my concerns about this other so called dentist and their recommendations that would cost me $1000’s, and he responded and gave me great information and advice. With his help, I was able to get some of my money back. He is not only helpful, but super friendly. My experience from Plaza Dental and his office was WAY different. His staff is super nice and friendly. My temporary crown from the other office was sloppy and done way too quickly – didn’t feel right either. The temporary crown that his staff made was carefully mixed, and molded to fit my tooth. It felt so much better and my entire experience was way better! After having a bad experience, you really appreciate dentists like Dr. Kurimoto who are honest, care about their patients and their teeth and take pride in their work. If you are looking for a great dentist, book an appointment!! I highly recommend Dr. Kurimoto!

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


first off, i WAS terrified of the dentist. i grew up with the worst dentist ever and absolutely dreaded going. …so i didn’t go for almost THREE years. yes, you read that correctly. i figured it was time to grow some cajones and find a new dentist for a much needed cleaning. enter dr. kurimoto. there was no judgement whatsoever, which really eased my nerves. they cleaned my teeth, did some x rays, told me how to take care of my teeth for the future, and fixed a cracked crown. dr. kurimoto is wonderful to chat with and his staff is even better! i felt right at home. i’m finally leaving a review because i’ve been in so many times to fix all of my previous dentist’s work. i’m talking probably 8 visits in the past 2 months! i’m SO thankful for this team, they’ve helped me out in more ways than i could ever imagine. dr. kurimoto truly cares (i even had to call him at 11PM for a dental emergency and not only did he respond, but he scheduled me for the first thing the next morning!) and does outstanding work. lupe (the office manager) is always cheerful, light-hearted, and really does look out for you. i can’t rave about them enough.

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


I had a severely painful tooth ache for two days and needless to say, it got worse and worse. I couldn’t sleep so I got up early in the morning and found Dr. Kurimoto. I went in to his office as early as possible and he helped me the moment they opened their door. He was great. The pain was relieved right away which was a huge blessing and after he finished the dental work, he gave me a really good price. All in all, I would say: Excellent service. Great dentist. Good price. Thank you Dr. Kurimoto.

Lulu K. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kurimoto is an excellent dentist and very kind and gentle. Since moving here from Hawaii, I have tried several dentist but every dentist always tries to recommend extra work and up sell me, and also suggesting night guards, etc. Dr. Kurimoto did also suggest a night guard for my teeth (I grind my teeth)  but was very honest saying that it is my responsibility to use it and if I’m not then don’t waste my money. All the other dentist before said I needed it but was very pushy about it and each visit I seemed to have surprise extra charges other than my regular cleaning and check ups. Since changing to Dr. Kurimoto, I never have gotten any surprise charges. 🙂 I chipped my tooth once eating nuts, and he fixed it for me for free!

Sam G. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Kurimoto for over ten years now, and he’s been an absolute blessing.  He is attentive to his patients’s needs, has a gentle touch (especially with with the scary needles part – you seriously can’t even feel the injections!) and is just amazingly skilled at his craft.  Lupe, Annik, Ingrid and  the rest of their friendly team make each office visit a genuine pleasure.  I’ve recommended my entire family to Dr. Kris, as well as many friends, and will continue to do so in the years to come.

Bret I. from Saint Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


The best dentist there is in the entire LA area……and I’ve been to ALOT of them! My wife and I have been patients of Dr. Kurimoto’s for a few years now and there hasn’t been a time when we’ve had anything other than a great experience. You’ll find the office to be clean and comfortable, with great magazines to read. Dr. Kurimoto and his office staff are extremely nice and easy to talk to and Dr. Kurimoto is also highly competent as well. Teeth cleanings I’ve had from other dentists have left me in pain, but Dr. Kurimoto’s method of cleaning is extremely gentle in addition to being effective! In addition, even though I know I’ll eventually need to have some wisdom teeth pulled, I really have appreciated how Dr. Kurimoto has not given me the “high pressure” that other dentists have and instead has allowed me to make the decision as to when I get it done. We recently moved from Glendale to the South Bay so we no longer live near Dr. Kurimoto’s office and because gas is so expensive we had considered finding a new dentist in the South Bay. But today we went back to see Dr. Kurimoto for teeth cleanings and we both felt it was worth the one hour trip. Yes, we could have found a different dentist within walking distance of where we now live, would have saved on gas, and would have saved the two hours of time that we lost on driving. But we would have lost Dr. Kurimoto and after our appointment today we were reminded why he’s the best dest Dentist in the LA area. After my appointment today, I told my wife “I’m sticking with Dr. Kurimoto until the end” and I really mean that. If you’re searching for a new dentist, you can’t do any better than Dr. Kurimoto.

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


I’ve had my share of dentists and Dr Kurimoto is the best I’ve had in the LA area since I moved here in 1996. I started going to him last year and I will continue to go to him. He’s very informative, friendly and seems to really care. Probably the most important thing – next to fine dental work – is he doesn’t try to push any extra products/services on you.
Highly recommend!

Armik D. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Easily the best dentist I’ve ever had. Initially, my wife and I were looking for a dentist near by and we looked on Yelp and saw some good reviews. Having had bad luck with dentists in the past, we were skeptical. That changed within minutes after meeting Dr. Kurimoto. My wife and I have never had a dentist who cared so much about our overall experience. Our only concern is how we’ll get to Dr. Kurimoto if we move too far away.

Veronica V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


After trying out various dentists it feels great to finally find one I love. I’ve been going to Dr. Kurimoto for almost 5 years. He is a great dentist, very friendly, his staff and office is friendly and professional. He is the first dentist to actually numb me so well that I absolutely do not feel a thing.  The oral hygienist was thorough yet gently when it came to cleaning my teeth, especially my gums. I have recommended Dr. Kurimoto to many of my co-workers and now my husband is a fan.

Pas K. from Cheviot Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


A few years ago, my fiance had a horrible toothache, and we visited several different dentists, but Dr. Kurimoto was the only one who properly diagnosed the problem as a tiny crack in the tooth. It seems that all the other dentists had misread the x-rays and missed the small crack. The dentist placed a temporary crown on the tooth, and patched the crack (or I think that’s what he did, anyway), and my fiance felt so much better! After being in agony for over a year, he was finally able to chew again on the left side of his mouth. Dr. Kurimoto  was friendly, funny, and extremely knowledgeable and competent- everything I had been searching for in a dentist. After that incident, I  started going to him for all my dental needs, and I have never been happier with a dentist. I usually hate going to the dentist, but when I do have to go, I’m happy that I have finally found one that is both competent and friendly
