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

Brigitte S. from Los Alamitos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was introduced to Dr. Marvizi when my dentist that I used before retired. It takes time to build trust to a new doctor especially a dentist when your smile is on the line and you face the costs for crowns, implants etc. I have to hand it to Dr. Marvizi and his staff for quickly building that new relationship with me as his patient. I fully trust his quality work, efficiency, knowledge and expertise option . Having friendly staff that accommodates me in so many ways makes a difference too. For example I usually see him at his Long Beach location but a crown came lose and I needed immediate help. Maria at the Los Angeles location fit me in even though his schedule was booked solid. It was well worth my longer drive from Orange County and Dr. Marvizi took care of my problem in no time. Thank you to all that made it happen.

The Dentists here are awesome! Dr. Lahmani is down to earth, personable, gentle and he goes above and beyond in all he does. The offices are clean and the staff was all very professional. Other dentists make you wait forever- wait in the waiting room, wait in the chair, etc….. well, not Dr. Lahmani! This was the first time in my life that I was ever in and out of the dentist in 2 hours or less. He is pretty much the opposite of all dentists I have interacted with…..I mean that in a very GOOD way! LOVE him and highly recommend!

Linda L. from Jasper, GA (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic, thorough, friendly dental practice. The entire staff is educated about the various dental and payment procedures and walks patients through the full process. They are quick to explain the steps of each procedure and make sure that patients are comfortable and understand what is going on at all times. My favorite dentists of the many I’ve seen over the years, due to their level of professionalism, warmth, and expertise. I feel that I’m in good hands, as they know what questions to ask, explain everything thoroughly, and keep the patient as the top priority. Also great about following up to make sure you remember your appointments

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


Dr. Marvizi has been my dentist for most of my adult life. He has not only quickly and efficiently dealt with infections and root canals and crowns but he has transformed my badly formed teeth over the years with cosmetic dentistry. People always comment on what a great smile I have. The other night, I broke off a tooth, which he had capped 20 years ago, and I had a 10 am appointment the next day to address it. I think 20 years is a good run for a bad tooth. I am terrified of dental work, but Dr. Marvizi gives the impression that everything is easy and takes 15 minutes. “Piece of cake” is his usual response, and he is so good that he’s right. He does not push procedures and “watches” problems over time until he believes that something has to be done, so there is no unnecessary dental work going on in his office. The staff are excellent; down-to-earth, straightforward and oozing with great customer service. Dr. Rayhan is like the mother you never had, soothing, patient, adept

Jane M. from Glendora, CA (Source: Yelp)


The care I receive at all locations is tip top ! I have been seen in long beach and the L.A office . The staff are so kind and extremely knowledgable ! Dr Marvizi is gentle , amazingly kind and extremely professional and gracious . I drive 1 hour from the other side of Pasadena to see him because of all the reasons I have given . I can’t speak highly enough of them …

Nikoletta L. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Marvizi is amazing! Accurate, not wasting his time and your time, get done everything what’s needed to be done in a short amount of time. Knows what’s he’s doing for sure! It was a pleasure meeting with him, he is a truly kind and funny person whom looks after the patients. He finished my root canal last week and I was just sitting there… no pain, no discomfort at all and he makes you feel comfortable during the whole time. If you have any dental problems THIS is the place to go!!

Davina F. from Reno, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rayhan and Dr. Marvizi are my 7th dentist in Los Angeles. I am so thankful for them. They have helped brighten my teeth, and they are always sensitive to my pain level. Also, the staff is amazing!!! I used to be afraid of cleanings since they always made my gums sore, but I love my cleanings at this office! Thank you to Dr. Rayhan, Dr. Marvizi, Sima in the reception, and all the staff!

Alexandria P. from Rock Island, IL (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough good things about Rayhan & Marvizi! I’m from VA, and I was visiting my sister in LA when I started having pain in a few molars. My sister recommended Rayhan & Marvizi. They immediately fit me in for an appointment, cleaned my teeth, looked at recent X-rays, and helped me figure out what the problem was. They also helped me figure out what was causing the problem, and a solution for both the short-term and long-term problem moving forward. A special shout-out to Sima, the office manager, for taking care of scheduling, billing, and expedited lab work — she really helped me out. I found all the staff to be really wonderful people. I’m feeling blessed that I was able to connect with such a competent and nice dentist’s office while I was traveling!

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


This is by far the best dental office I have visited. I have been with Dr. Marvizi for 5 years and I have received excellent care. The offfice staff is professional, efficient and friendly. The quality of dental service is great. When I came to Dr. Marvizi my gums were a wreck from years of poor dental service. Now my gums are healthy. Last year I had the Invisilign braces, and I had a superb result. Now I smile as often as I can to show off my beautiful straight, white teeth!! If you want excellent care, you want to see Dr. Marvizi.

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


My long time dentist, Dr. Nakaeya, (and I know I am mis-spelling it), retired maybe 4 years ago and sent me to the Rayhan & Marvizi office telling me that ‘they have the same ethics and standards as he had and he trusted them to take good care of his patients’. I did not fully believe this as I am not young and therefore have had extensive experience with Dentists. However I went in and tried them out. I have been amazingly, refreshingly, pleased with the entire office. I have no dental insurance. I pay out of pocket. They are not the cheapest and they are not the most expensive dental office I have been to. Rather they are somewhere in the middle. More importantly they do a great job on my mouth and are caring and friendly and accomadating in their dealings with me. I talk a lot and that is not easy when your mouth is full of insturments and hands but they take the extra time, patiently, to let me express a thought or an interest. They seem very well trained to me but more then fine skills, I must say that Dr. Marvizi is an artist. He also tells me each thing he is about to do and asks often if I am doing all right. I want to add that If I were wealthy I would pay Kim to come to my house every day on her way to or from work to give me mouth care. She cleans my teeth once a month and keeps a check on the healthy progress of my gum disease. She is gentle and thorough and kind. The office staff are all warm and concerned and helpful. Dr. Lahmani took care of me for most of the last 4 years and has been as careful and good as any dentist I’ve ever known. Oh, and one time a few years into treatment I was in pain and had to call the office in the middle of a holiday evening. Dr Rayhan spoke with me and offered to meet me in the office. I said I could wait until morning as driving at night is not safe for me or the rest of the world. Dr. Marvizi met me there about 6 AM. Meanwhile Dr. Rayhan spoke with me extensively about my symptons and we decided it was inflamation and I took the recommended over the counter meds for this. Well let me wind this up; clearly, with serious dental problems, four years leaves me with more stories then you need or want to hear. Let me just say I recommend the entire staff for their proffessional humane care of my teeth and my whole person. i actually look forward to my appointments and anyone reading this knows that is not easy to say about any dental office.

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


I went to Dr, Marvizi a few months ago for several implants , cut the story short , I am updating my review and giving this people 5 stars because of Maria. Beside the good doctors , She is very professional and is super nice with her clients. Her efforts are very much appreciated and she is an asset and credit to this dental offices .

Mollie Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I only have good things to say about Dr Rayhan and Dr Marvizi. They have such friendly staff and Sima is so helpful with scheduling. I have been coming here for a few years now and just found out about their dental cleaning plan. It’s much cheaper than insurance and I look forward to getting it at my next appointment.

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


I visited with my fiancé and right off the bat I was greeted with a warm smile and friendly conversation. Thanks to Maria I quickly forgot I was at the dentist office. I felt right at home. Although I was waiting for my fiancé to get her cleaning done, I was impressed at their professionalism and balanced with hospitality. Definitely coming back to set up my appointments.

Lu G. from Altadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming here for over 20 years and I Still remain very loyal. Dr. Rayhan & Marvizi are AWESOME!!! Sima and Rebecca are EXTREMELY Helpful and they’re Always very attentive. The doctors and staff care about my needs and concerns. The entire staff will answer any and all questions that I have without hesitation. They are Truly GREAT!! HIGHLY Recommend !

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


I love everything about this dental office and I’ve been a patient for 25 years and would never go to any other dental practice. This is a kid friendly practice so the entire family can be treated. If you have any concerns the staff is knowledgeable, can answer all your questions and will make sure you are comfortable and informed before starting any procedure. I would recommend Rayhan & Marvizi to any and everyone.

Savannah B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Marvizi for more than 20 years. I am in the film business, between here and NY and whenever I am in NY, I always wait to come back here and have him do my work. He did veneers for me and they are gorgeous. He has exquisite good taste and does the most professional job anyone could ask for. The front office, run by Sima is so professional and I always know I am in good hands with all of them. Going to the dentist can be a terrifying experience, but Dr. Marvizi gives shots that you can never feel, and he is always using the highest technology in the dental world. My sister and her husband came out here from Louisiana and I took them to see Dr. Marvizi. They were stunned with the technology. Besides…..Dr. Marvizi is a fabulous dentist. He did work on Larry’s mouth that absolutely transformed his smile. Dr. Rayhan is also great. She is very caring and extremely patient with you. The hygienists are super knowledgeable and very good at what they do. When I read some reviews complaining about this and that….I am stunned. This dental office is the only place I will ever go. I’m so glad they became dentists. savannah boucher

June K. from Silver Lake, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to this office for the past three years and have never experienced a better medical service in my life. Dr. Rayhan, Dr. Marvizi and the rest of the staff have the utmost costumer service in mind. I always feel taken care of and thought of here. Usually people don’t feel great going to a dentist’s office, but now that I go to Dr. Rayhan and Dr. Marvizi’s office, I always feel at ease headed there.

Joel B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love u guys !!!!!… I’ve been coming here for like 4 years now and let me tell you there the best!!!!… they treat you like family and do the best dental work in town trust me I’ve had some work done and every procedure I’ve had has been pain free and fix on one visit. I visit every 3 months for a cleaning and my mouth stay on point!! If your out there looking for a dentist stop looking and come here! Love all of you guys there. See ya soon!!

Magdalena K. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I LOVE this practice! It was recommended to me by a friend, after I heard from another dentist in Beverly Hills that my teeth were falling apart and I needed 10 crowns. Dr. Marvizi gave me a clear estimation of the situation which turned out not to be that bad at all. He outlined what and it what order needed to be done. And the specialists they refer me to are just AWESOME and they’ll even make an appointment for you. The staff is great: Rebecca (assistant), Kim (hygienist) and of course Sema (office manager – she’ll always take good care of patients). Needless to say that I didn’t need 10 crowns but 2 within 3 years and NOT immediately and my teeth look and feel good.

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


Dr’s Rayhan and Marvizi are the only dentists I’ve ever been to. It’s probably not great that I’ve seen them more in the past 10 years than I have in the 10 years before that; but that’s a different story. They are beyond professional and accommodating. I can’t tell you how many times they’ve sat with me in the waiting room; patiently explaining procedures to me for the 1 millionth time. Their office manager Sima is an institution in herself. She’s one of the few people in my life, outside of relatives, that I’ve known for over 25 years. Sima, along with Becca, Jenny, Cynthia, Ana and the newest edition…Maria; they are all fabulous. They are kind of like office moms. Always teaching me better brushing and flossing techniques. I always get nervous when I come in and the warm chemistry between them has a way of making me feel safe and at home, almost forgetting I’mbat the dentist. All in all, the staff here is amazing. I literally couldn’t imagine not taking my own kids here someday. They’ve honestly become more of an extended family than my dental providers.

Julie W. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Why I Like My Dentists By Julie Webster I’m off to the dentist…lucky me To see the famed Dr. Marvizi A central location to go to By car, by bus or even by shoe Valet parking, in and out Taking care of our needs is what they’re about Maria greets me as I walk in the door And sympathizes if my tooth is sore The waiting room is nice and clean No time to wait or read a magazine The patient’s room has a panoramic view I am one of a privileged few The view of LA is a reason to go The Wilshire corridor spans far below He’s been my dentist for seventeen years Not once has he ever brought me to tears All this time he’s worked on my teeth I haven’t had one little beef He’s the BEST, so gentle and fast Forget other dentists from my past A more positive person I have rarely met Any fears I have I would quickly forget Every minute he asks “Are you OK?” No time to fret or feel dismay The background music is hard to beat I forget what he’s doing while tapping my feet He’s my “no pain” dentist, who knew there was such An expert indeed, he’s got ‘that touch’ I have had every procedure that dentists can do They all were a breeze, not once a boo-hoo With years of experience, he’s such a pro To anyone else I will NEVER go Dr. Rayhan, his wife, is a dentist too She’s gentle and thorough and cares about you Just to make sure that he’s kept in line His sister manages his office, she’s divine Sima handles everything to a tee But most of all she cares about ME She knows what to say if I need a lift When I bring a new patient she gives me a gift Assistants, Rebecca, Cynthia and Anna too Are so well trained, they know just what to do If by chance your cleaning is due Jenny, Rose or Haydee will take care of you Hot towels they give you when you’re out of the chair Just shows you how much about you they care I feel so grateful for their expertise My dental visits are now such a breeze They feel like the family I never had Just try one visit and you’ll be glad I LOVE my dentists and they love me To feel their love…just go and see

Barbara W. from Carthay Circle, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love, love, love being a part of the Rayhan & Marvizi DDS family! Yes, you read that right: “family” as this is how I’m treated (pardon the pun). From the moment I arrive, Sima and the Front Office staff warmly greet me. I rarely wait more than 5 minutes before I am in the chair of the trustworthy, competent and loyal hygienist, Jenny, as well as receive a personal greeting/check-in from Dr. Marvizi or Dr. Rayhan..just because! Both have done moderate oral procedures for me and they’ve been knowledgeable, patient and proficient at their craft. In this office, EVERYONE is friendly and has a genuine interest in the overall health of the mouth. I like to think of this office as a place I go to receive a “dental spa treatment.” Great service, flexibility, and genuine concern for their patients is why I’ve been coming here for 20 years (and hopefully more to come)

Kelsey D. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended this office from a very long time patient. I had some issues with my mouth guard fitting improperly (fitted by a different dentist) and they ground it down to where it fit my bite perfectly. I’m glad I went and got it taken care of because my night guard fits now, and isn’t causing any pain (which it’s supposed to prevent in the first place) they also measured my gums for free and didn’t charge me for the adjustment. Heave ensured I come back for a cleaning no problem because they are attentive and deserve good business. The staff is very sweet, and there’s a few funny ones in there! Thank you so much!

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


i went in here not too long ago to have one of the doctor’s check out my filling. I thought that there was something wrong with it, as it’s ben bothering me for months. It’s really sensitive to cold and every time I ate ice cream on that side i felt like my mouth might fall off. I came in with a long time patient of Dr. Marvizi and my mouth was checked out in not too long of a wait. I had to fill out a bunch of paperwork, but I haven’t been a new patient at a dentist so i figured I was out of touch a bit. After my mouth was looked at they asked my if I wanted to bring my night-guard in because I had mentioned earlier that it pinches a little bit when I try to put it in, no charge. I thought that was pretty nice of them, and considering they didn’t charge for the visit, I’d say that’s an excellent start to a future relationship. Needless to say my filling doesn’t hurt anymore, and I think I was just putting in my night-guard at an awkward angle, because it fits fine now! Thank you for checking out my tooth!

Eric R. Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was just recommended this dental office and have been sincerely impressed with the service and treatment from top to bottom. I felt they have been very direct with me about what kind of treatment I need and very clear about what they are doing to me and why, which I very much appreciate it. All the staff are very friendly and very professional. Plus I have been able to schedule appointments with a short turnaround, there is never a wait, and they always call to give me a reminder about my appointments, which is a lifesaver for me with my busy schedule. They are also sympathetic to the fact that my budget for dental care is limited and help me figure what is best for me based on what I can afford and what my insurance covers. So I highly recommend this office. Also, great convenient location smack in the middle of LA.

Crispin K. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Joe has been my dentist for the better part of 35 years! In that time I have learnt to think of him as a friend as well as a phenomenal dentist. I love him dearly and cannot speak highly enough of his work (or his sister, who runs the office :)) Thanks, Marvizi-Rayhan, you guys are a blessing in our lives!

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


I have been coming to this dental office for over 10 years, andI have been a patient of Dr Marvizi and Dr Rayhan. Everyone takes such good care of me and my teeth. Sima who runs the office is amazing! The dental hygienists are wonderful and do a great job. My most recent appointment I was treated by Dr Rayhan. I don’t like novacain and wanted just a topical local numbing. She was gentle and gave my breaks during drilling, preparing for my crown. She asked me how I was many times during the procedure. I highly recommend her and this place.

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


The best DENTAL office on the planet !!! I’ve been a patient/client for over 30 years!! Their dental treatment and prevention maintenance services are 2nd to NONE!! I still have ALL my teeth…and healthy gums! They can fix and repair ANY dental issues you can imagine…The front office support team are FIRST CLASS…empathetic to the emotional needs of the patients…very supportive in helping you maximize your dental benefits.

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


I’ve been coming to this office for 5 years now and will say that they are the most professional, welcoming, and caring staff I have ever received dental care from. Dr. Marvizi and Dr. Rayhan are highly professional, experienced and genuine. Their staff are awesome and will make you feel like family. Highly recommended. You will NOT regret it.

Julia Z. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


What a great experience!!!!! From the first minute I walked in I had a wonderful visit. The front office is very professional and helpful. Dr. Rayhan and Dr. Marvizi are excellent! I’m so happy I found this office. They are very caring and their prices are very reasonable.

Frank B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Even though I’ve had every major dental procedure possible — from several root canals to crowns, extractions, implants to an apicoectomy (look that one up for a scare) from several different doctors over the years — dental visits are still a stressful time. Most importantly of course you want problem-free treatment and to avoid any pain, and Dr. Rayhan was perhaps the most gentle consider it careful dentist I have ever had. The all female staff are pleasant, accommodating and knowledgeable who instruct you not lecture you. They get you in when your appointment is scheduled. Incredible vistas of LA, helping helping you to relax. Professional and pleasant from start to finish.

Myra G. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Marvizi & Dr. Rayhan and their staff members are absolutely amazing! This team genuinely cares about their profession and patients and will go above and beyond to make sure you leave satisfied. They have provide me with the best dental experience I’ve ever had.  This dental office is so accommodating and has always worked with my busy school/work schedule. If you’re looking for a place you can truly trust with highly knowledgeable, professional, honest, and personable staff members then look no further!

Katherine B. from West Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr’s Rayhan & Marvizi for 3 years, and have gotten great care. I have very sensitive teeth & gums and a painful jaw, and they are always careful and kind with me, especially through the process of getting a few teeth crowned. 3 months ago I had a ‘deep cleaning’ to address some early periodontal disease (deepening pockets, gum irritation & bleeding). I’ve had one deep cleaning before, 2 or 3 yrs prior, and my gums improved after, but I still had some areas of deep pockets. At the suggestion of the hygeinist & Dr., I purchased a Waterpik flosser- I got a travel one on Amazon- and used it every night before bed for the last 3 months, along with my usual brush & floss. At my last cleaning 2 wks ago I had the easiest cleaning ever, much less plaque, and the best gum health I’ve had in over 10 years, no areas of concern. So I’m totally into the Waterpik water flosser, go get one!

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


I love the service and attention to detail I receive at Dr. Marvizi ‘ office.  I have been going to this office for 14 years now and I cannot even believe it has been that long.  Dr. Marvizi is always honest and never sugar coats the treatment plan. I hate the needles dentist have to use to give local anesthesia and he is a master at it. Everyone has done an amazing job at keeping my teeth in my mouth.  Lol. Rebecca,  Dr. Lahmani, Dr. Rayhan and Jenny keep up the good work.  Sima and Shamika  (forgive if I spelled your name wrong) YOU GUYS ROCK! UNFORTUNATELY the only negative factor is the parking.  I try to get the early appointments so I can park next door for $6. Early bird gets the worm.

Angelique B. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not getting the right type of personalized treatment from your dentist. Try Drs. Marvizi & Rayhan! I have been a faithful patient of them for over 20 years! This husband and wife team are like family to me and have taken care of all of my family members as well. Dr. Marvizi is like a breath of fresh air for a dentist. No stoic, bland, “open your mouth” talk….He’s fun, personable and is always up to date with the latest in dentistry. Most importantly he gingerly caters to cowards. The LA office team of Sima and Shameka make all the more reason to have them as your new dental office. They are more than professional, they are kind, friendly and extremely knowledgeable and professional. Not to mention they have worked there for years. They truly make you feel at home from the first call into them to simply using the restroom. Take my word for it, you will never go wrong being cared for by this team. They are amazing!


Dr. Marvizi has been in the dental private practice sector for close to 30 years! He thrives on making strong connections with his patients, and he gets pleasure watching families mature through their dental care. Dr. Marvizi received his BA from UC Berkeley in Physiology/Anatomy. He went on to the University of the Pacific to receive his DDS, and he graduated from the Misch Implant Institute. Aside from these accomplishments, Dr. Marvizi contributed to advanced occlusion research from Frank Spear at the Seattle Institute and from Terry Tanaka and the Dawson Institute team. But that’s not all! Dr. Marvizi continues to learn cutting-edge techniques in the dental field, delivering the highest quality care to his patients.
