Dr. Ara Gulesserian is hands down the BEST Dentist I have ever been to, and I have been to a few. The office is professional, clean and has a family friendly feel to it. They are fast paced so they take you in right away and do the job quickly, painless and diligently. I can honestly say Dr. Ara. Gulesserian delivers true 5 star service and is an asset to dentistry

Lovely attentive staff. They always pay close attention to patient needs and are very prompt in calling patients to make/reschedule appointments. The doctors are wonderful and kind and their practice is professional and personal. I highly recommend ProviDent’s doctor Ara and Doctor Ani.

Monique C. from Alhambra, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ara is the best!!! I have been to several dentists over the years and they were not trustworthy let alone very gentle. Sorry but I’m sensitive with my teeth and I tend to take care of them so when dentists come up to me saying I have poor teeth, it throws up a red flag; not over here. I was referred by one of my supervisors to come in and see Dr. Ara. Right away the staff dental assistants and most of all Dr. Ara were all helpful, welcoming and most of all reassuring that I was in good hands. Looking back I’m so glad I received this referral and go to this dental office for all my work. I even referred my parents, and they have the worst case scenario for teeth. This past year I have had wisdom teeth pulled, cleanings, fills, and even a root canal and all taken care of right away and followed up if needed. If there is ever a concern or discrepancy (usually never) they are more than willing to assist me. Thanks to Dr. Ara and his staff I don’t dread going to the dentist and actually look forward and happy to refer him to my family and friends

Willow D. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great service! Call to book an appointment and it was as easy as it sounds. Then on the day did not have to wait more than an acceptable 5min and they were super sweat offering water and tea while you wait. The consultation went smoothly and I have already a treatment booked. Can’t wait to start it. Thank you Burbank Dentist!

Like most I do not enjoy going to the dentist, having rather bad experiences in the past. However, I’ve been a very satisfied patient for many years…there’s no one else I’d trust my teeth to! Dr. Arthur Gulesserian is a gentle, caring man with excellent dental skills. He is sensitive to my low tolerance of pain and makes sure I’m pain-free. His staff always makes me feel welcome, comfortable and relaxed.Thumbs up for ProviDent Dental Group!!

Ashlee H. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ara’s office has been my dental home for many years now. It truly feels like family here and I couldn’t be happier with how all of you have treated my dental needs and wants. A special shoutout to my reception gals for always making me smile!! You guys are THE BEST team and my teeth are truly grateful for each and everyone of you. Thanks for all that you guys do! It doesn’t go unnoticed

Alejandro R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you’re in need or just in search of a new Dental office, look no further. Recently made the switch after moving to Burbank and couldn’t be any happier with my decision. Dr. Ara and his staff are all friendly and helpful, especially Alma at the front desk and Amy the hygienist. 10/10 would recommend this place to friends, family and strangers alike.

A. T. from La Cañada Flintridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this office.  I have been going to DR Ara for the pst 18 years , I do my cleaning every 6 months and they do a wonderful job, the place has been remodeled now and looks wonderful and clean.  Staff is awesome and friendly , they always accommodate my schedule . I have recommended Los of people hear and everyone has called  me to thank me and say what a wonderful job they do.  All my employees now also see Dr Ara

Arsineh B. from La Crescenta, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this place… I’ve been going to Provident Dental for years for regular cleanings and cavities.  I’ve been wanting to do Invisalign but was a little hesitant and considered going to an orthodontist instead.  But after talking to Dr. Ara about it, I felt comfortable that he’s an expert at that too.  I’m so happy I did it!  The office is very professional and timely.  Most importantly, they were very flexible with my timing.  I work in Brentwood so I’m not the easiest scheduling patient, but Dr. Ara went out of his way many times to take me at times that worked.  Now I’m done and my results are great…Thank you Dr. Ara!!

Julia T. from West Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gulesserian is a wonderful dentist and the office staff is amazing.  Everyone is attentive and extremely kind.  Everything is explained throughly. Thank you for your thoughtful care and overall expertise in my dental well being.  Every dentist in this office is wonderful.  I highly recommend them

Peggy M. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been afraid of the dentist and I’m very grateful to find Dr. Ara. I was introduced to him by my uncle when I was looking for a professional dentist to remove all my wisdom teeth. I’ve had such a great experience like I’ve never had it before when it comes to dentistry. I’ve also worked with Dr. Ani, she’s amazing. Dr. Ara, Dr. Ani and the front office staff are very professional, knowledgeable and friendly and I HIGHLY recommend them to everyone who’s looking for a good experience and good quality work. Thank you for caring about your patients. Peggy

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


Dr. Ara is by far the best dentist! I LOVE the whole staff there! He has been my dentist for about 10 years now. Growing up, I had many, many teeth problems. Had many different dentist too. It seemed like the more I went to the dentist the more problems I was having. I kinda think a lot of dentist are the cause of many problems in your mouth. After Dr. Ara became my DDS I completely stopped having all major teeth problems. Actually, I’ve had no problems at all. Of course, I spent the first two years seeing him regularly because he had to fix and redo my whole mouth. I even had an implant done. I love Dr. Ara!! His wife works the front office and she is really awesome too. He is also so freakin hilarious, as well as very honest. I look forward to many more years of being his patient. Even though he keeps telling me to take care of my teeth because he won’t be a dentist forever. I know he will! Thank you Dr Ara, Yvette, and everyone else there!

Monica-Mony G. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I personally have been affraid of the dentist since I was little. However, I love this dental office. All the staff are friendly, professional and kind hearted. Mentally they make me feel at ease. As far as caring for my teeth….they have state of the art equipment which makes everything smooth and easy. The dentist are gentle, precise, caring, understanding, professional, knowledgeable, and all around the best. I recommend them to any and everyone. They are the best better than all the rest. I’m grateful to have found them 8 yrs ago and will never see anybody else. Thank you to the staff and dentist for making me comfortable, at ease and making me proud to smile. Xoxo Sincerely, Monica Smith

Artin A. from Encino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I know it’s not an exiting subject, but when you find a dentist you trust, there is no better feeling. I have seen Dr Ara and Dr Ani for over 20 years. I can’t say enough about them. I have my entire family coming here. Thanks for everything doc! You and the entire staff are awesome every time

Angela V. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


We highly recommend Dr Ara and his team. Great dentists, beautiful office, little to no wait, quality work and a kind and caring attitude. They have been taking care of my entire family for a few years now. So happy a friend recommended him. Also Dr Martin the oral surgeon is amazing, had my second visit with him this morning and this wonderful doctor checked in with me this afternoon just to see how I was doing. Truly above and beyond

Pamela G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best day of my life was finding Dr. Ara and Dr. Ani.  They are the most caring and skilled dentists that I have ever gone to.  I needed a lot of cosmetic work done that other dentists had totally screwed up., While most dentists will say that they do cosmetic dentistry, they are not qualified for it.  Dr. Ara and Dr. Ani are not only great cosmetics dentists, but are wonderful in everything they do.  They are so thorough and kind, that it makes it a pleasure going there.  Their office staff is the best ever; everyone so kind and welcoming.  Office is lovely. My teeth look absolutely beautiful.  I am so happy with them and I found them through their reviews on Yelp.  If you are looking for top, professional dentists to go for regular dentistry or cosmetic, this is the place to go. They work so hard for you to make sure that everything perfect. I highly recommend them, and I will be one of their patients for life! As far a I am concerned, the are the absolutely best!

John M. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always hated dentists. Stemmed from many horrible experiences from the past. That fear is now gone. These guys are professional, friendly and efficient. Extremely satisfied and my irrational fear has now disappeared. I wish I knew about these guys earlier. The dentists at the Provident Group are some of the most knowledgeable and delightful people I have ever had the pleasure of doing business with. My only regret is that I didn’t know about these guys would’ve saved me a lot of pain and suffering. Thanks guys and see you soon… Hopefully not though. But if I need to, you guys are it

Joseph F. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 17 year old, 12 year old, my self and Bride, we all love this doctor…he is patient and explains things in normal terms. Correction, my sis-in-law was the one that recommended us to Dr. Ara..can’t say enough good things about him and his staff.(Tanya and Yvette)

Delcia Villatoro (Source: Google)


Truly truly, I love this Dentistry, I have never been scared once having to go to an appointment. Even my six year old daughter looks forward to her appointment she is not scared. Literally everyone is super friendly and kind, the service is top notch, pain free, quick and I feel well cared for. I have to drive 30-45 min out of my way to get there because I live in La sometimes they are soooooo work it. I would recommend to anyone

Rosy G. from Sun Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Ara for giving my kids and I a beautiful smile we love coming to your office to get our teeth cleaning or any other type of work done your staff is always so nice and helpful we love Alma she always does her best to work with my busy schedule you guys are my five + stars

John L. from Montebello, CA (Source: Yelp)


My son and I have been coming to Dr. Ara Gulleserian at ProviDent Dental Group for over 5 years. I highly recommend Dr. Ara and staff because they CARE about their patients. They are gentle, caring, knowledgeable, skillful and have a state of the art facility. We feel and are treated like family. If you are looking for a great dentist, do yourself a favor and give them a try and you’ll be the ones writing this recommendation next. Best, John P. Liu

D. L. (Source: Zocdoc)


The staff was very friendly and helpful. The doctor explained all of the procedure and made sure I was pain free. The doctor was very approachable and kept making sure I was comfortable throughout the procedure

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


Dr Gulesserian has done several procedures for me and each time it has been better then the next. Unfortunately, he was sick in bed this time that I had broken a tooth. The office scheduled me to see Dr Toomanian instead. I was incredibly satisfied and impressed by the work Ani Toomanian did. I thought she was going to have to pull my tooth as the prior fillings had really thinned out the walls of the tooth, but she was able to replace and upgrade the fillings so that I can keep my tooth. AMAZING work!
Thank You

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


Dr Ara is the best dentist I ever had. Last Christmas I was dying of a tooth pain and tried to get in contact with any dentist that would see me ASAP. But as expected no one was available so my friend recommended me Dr Ara. He called me and scheduled  a appointment  the next morning and removed my molar that was very damaged. Witch was so kind because I figured he would be with his family. But anyway… Since then I been coming here regularly to make sure my teeth are good. He is such a caring person that makes sure you are comfortable with every procedure.  The staff are  really nice girls and they always call you to remind you of your appointment.  Plus the facility is very clean and organize. I love love love coming here. Thanks Dr Ara

Yvette G. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Ara for years, I decided to move my 10 year old boys from their Pediatric Dentist to Provident Dental Group since the office is much closer.  I don’t know why I didn’t do this sooner- both of my boys went in for a tooth extraction- Dentist and staff was AMAZING! They took the time and patience to explain the entire process to the boys since they were clearly nervous and scared of the procedure.  Both boys felt no pain and it was a seamless process.  I cant thank the Doctor and staff enough- Awesome job you guys!! (as usual)

Russell C. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


Used to come here back when I used to live at Avalon at San Fernando. They worked on my typical general dentistry. Annual appointment and cleanings etc. Unfortunately I live in Orange County now, but if I ever move back I’d make this my go to place. To start, they have really nice people at this location. Great service and a good level of understanding. They kept everything very simple throughout the whole process whenever I would come here. I’ve seen some of their cosmetic dentistry work too and they do a really great job at that as well. It’s also very conveniently located right next to the mall. So I typically stop by the Burbank town center. They got a great spot, as well as a great surround area. If you’re looking for a place to get your dentist work done I’d recommend this place! Thanks again guys!

Chris E. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a pleasant experience today . We got to see Elvis ! , Aka Dr. Ara . I must say the staff and Doctors are extremely friendly and professional. I never would of imagined my kids looking forward to coming here . It must be the toys or the gentle hands of the physicians , probably both

Eric S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not only is this the best dentist office in town but it’s the best dentist office that I have every had.  Great service!  I love these guys!  Been going here for 20 plus years.  Highly recommend this place

Stephanie B. from Elmhurst, IL (Source: Yelp)


I first started going here years ago when another dentist did a botched job, and my fillings were popping out of my mouth. I can not say enough good things about this place! First off, the facilities are super nice, modern, and comfortable. The staff is great and you can tell they are always looking out for you. And most importantly, Dr. Gulessarian is amazing! He is always straight forward, kind, and helpful. He really knows what he is doing, and always does a great job. Also, something that matters a lot to me, is great with injections. I am terrified of needles to the point of crying and hyperventilating. When I informed him of this, he didn’t do the usual thing of trying to assure me it won’t hurt (which never helps, and only serves to upset me. It’s an irrational fear, no point in trying to rationalize it). He simply acknowledged it, and proceded very quickly and gently. He is probably the only person ever to come near me with a needle without me launching into a panic attack. So if you’re like me, going to see him is a must! I could go on forever about how great this place is, and how they make trips to the dentist something you don’t dread. My only regret, is that I’m moving far away, and he can’t be my dentist anymore. I have been ruined for all other dentists

Raffi G. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ara & Dr Ani as well as their amazing staff have been our go to for any of our entire family dental needs & even some dental emergencies. We consider them somewhat family. I’ve unfortunately had to go to other dentists due to insurance purposes, but soon after realized there’s no replacing their expertise as well as professionalism. Found myself running back to them after three years of tooth pain and grinding. There’s no replacing talent, and decided it’s better to pay cash knowing I’m receiving the upmost care, then have insurance forcefully send me to dental groups who are not even in par with them. Only after two quick & painless appointments, they were able to resolve the ROOT (pun intended) ofyears of agonizing tooth pain, and meraculiusly got rid of my severe TMJ pain that was resulted from it. They’re magicians when it come to dental hygien & professional care. My life was drastically altered for the better immediately following my last visit. I can’t thank you all enough

Adrine A. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I almost don’t want to write this review so not many people know about this place and I can get an appointment anytime I want. :)- All jokes aside, Dr. Ara is the best dentist I’ve ever had. I’ve been seeing him for over 7 years, and I haven’t had a single bad experience. He and his staff are kind, efficient, and hilarious! Forget all the anxiety about going to a dental office. You’ll actually be excited about your upcoming appointment. They’re super fair with their prices, never make you wait more than 5 minutes before taking you in, and Dr. Ara does amazing work in such a short period of time. Absolutely love this office and all the staff!

Jennifer L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. G and his associates gave me a chance to keep my teeth. I had gone to no less than 8 dentists here in the S.F. Valley and all of them did the very least on teeth and then when the teeth failed they would charge me crazy prices to cap them. Dr. G. replaced all of the metal fillings (yes the previous dentists left them) and gave a great starting point to maintaining the health in my mouth. If you want an opportunity to keep your teeth and care about how your teeth affect your overall health – go see Dr. G and his associates. A+

Skip P. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


The first time I visited this office I saw Dr. Ara. He was quick, pleasant, and did great work. The next time I came in, because a crown came off, I saw Dr. Ani Toomanian, who was a real pleasure and as excellent as Dr. Ara. Plus, she’s very happy and efficient and as beautiful as Sandra Bullock. Who’s knows, maybe she is Sandra Bullock researching a part for Horrible Bosses 3 because Jennifer Anison can’t do it, I don’t know. I saw Dr. Ani the third time and I have to see her a fourth time to get a new crown put on. Twist my finger. I’ve rarely been to the dentist in my life, who knew I’d look forward to it so much?

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


I love this dental group!  They are a wonderful bunch of professionals who genuinely care about the well being of the individuals they serve.  I have been to other dentists who just want to pull and cap larger cavities, this group here did everything possible to fix everything with as little down time as possible.  They saved a tooth that over a year ago another dentist tried to have me do a root canal on!  Crazy.  I have no more pain or any other issues.  They have a multiple x-ray (including very clear picture type) technology and with TVs facing the client so that everything is very transparent plus explained very thoroughly throughout the entire process.  I love this dental group and will continue recommending them to friends and family

Myriam V. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is one of the best offices I have ever been to. Dr. Gulesserian is a wonderful dentist! I have never been to a dentist where i dont experience pain while being worked on. He truly is a great dentist. I will defintely  recommend him to family and friends!!!!!
