I would just like to thank the staff at Raymond Mangigian Dental Office. You tried your best to accommodate me on such short notice. You called me back as soon as you had an opening. I was able to locate a Children’s Dentistry that accepts HMO. Blessings, Felicia

For years if not decades the dentist has been a must do/should do/hate to do experience. And the shots were the peak of a routinely crummy experience. Until Ray Mangigian. Although he’s a very sweet guy his skill at making this whole process comfortable and pretty darn easy is the best I’ve ever known. Hell, it’s the best anyone I know has known. And the shots are weirdly painless. How does he do that? Actually, I don’t care. Just keep doing it.

If I could give them 10 stars I would!  I love the entire office, the staff, the environment, the treatment options are fabulous.  My husband has been going to them since he was a teenager and brought me in after we got together.  I used to have major anxiety about going to the dentist but not anymore.  They put all my concerns to rest.  I actually enjoy seeing them twice a year to catch up!  Now we bring our niece here and her teeth look so much better, they take pride in their work and the quality is top notch.  We drive 45 minutes from our current home just because they are the best.  The you Dr. Mangigian and Staff!

I’ve been to a few dentists in my time, due to my long addiction for things that are bad for your teeth.But I’ll have to admit Dr.Mangigian is the best I’ve ever been to.I’ve been a patient of his for 12 yrs. now and I get my teeth cleaned by his hygienist every 4 mon.A UCLA grad. of their school of dentistry,this guy has a steady hand.The original “painless potter”.I’ve had some bad experiences with dentists in the past,most when I was a kid.But Doc. Ray is gentle and easy.Sounds more like a date then a dentist visit. If your looking for a excellent dentist for yourself or for the family(by the way he’s excellent with kids) slide into the dental chair of Dr Raymond Mangigian. He also plays saxophone in an all dentist jazz band called “Open Wide”.Now that’s cool!

I have been a patient Ray Mangigian’s for the past 24 years. He is without question the best dentist I have seen! My Wife and children have also seen him for many years. His staff is excellent!! I actually look forward to going to the dentist after having some very bad experiences earlier in life. I highly recommend Ray and his staff for all your dental needs.

Shannon J. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I first went to Dr. Mangigian about 17 years ago after a LONG time not going to the dentist. I was in great pain and I needed to be seen immediately. I called 1-800 -Dentist and asked for a referral to someone who was gentle and OK with dental-phobic patients, whose native language was English, who’d been to a school I’d heard of, who was close to my home, and who could see me SOON. They referred me to Dr. Ray Mangigian and I’ve been going ever since. He is really a great dentist, the hygienists are great, and the office staff is helpful and friendly. Their office has an AMAZING array of magazines in the waiting room, but you won’t have much time to read them because their office actually runs ON TIME so it’s unlikely you’ll have to spend too much time waiting. I can’t recommend Dr. Mangigian and his office highly enough!

Natasha K. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I located Dr. Mangigian through my insurance dental directory so of course I was skeptical in the beginning.  I visited two other dentists prior to Dr. Mangigian and I no longer have to search for a great dentist.  I am very lucky to have found Dr. Mangigian on my own without any referral.  Not only is the office very friendly, the hygienists and Dr. Mangigian are very professional and excellent at their craft.  I have a beautiful smile that will last for years to come.

Nothing but the best with Dr. Mangigian and his team. They understood my needs and made the experience smooth even with two fillings. He was able to take care of cleaning and the fillings all in the same appointment. Dr. Mangigian is caring and gentle, great qualities to have in your dentist!

I can’t believe how good this dental office is. I have always had horrible experiences with dentists. I needed to find a new dentist and Dr. Mangigian was recommended to me. I have never had such a good experience with a dentist EVER! I was in a few weeks ago and got my teeth cleaned (best job ever). I needed a crown and had the first appointment. Unbelievable! I asked for nitrous oxide, which I got. I never felt the novacain shots, never had any pain, left with my temporary crown. That night I never felt like I had even been to the dentist. Usually, I would have a sore mouth and be uncomfortable for a few days. I didn’t have any issues at all with the temporary crown. Just got the permanent crown put in easy and painless. I wish I would have found this dental office a long time ago! Dentist and all office staff are wonderful!!

Dr. Mangigian is an excellent dentist. His professional demeanor and skill are above par. The staff are friendly, kind and accommodating. Since my initial visit, Dr. Mangigian and staff have not deviated from providing excellent service. I have recommended him to several family members. Thank you Dr. Mangigian, Suzie, Laurie & Raquel for all that you do.

I saw Dr. Mangigian in Dec of last year i was impress with the dental work he had done for me. He is a great doctor reasonable. Prices on any dental work. the staff was very friendly & show great customer service and made me feel so comfortable while i was there. I would definitely. recommend anybody that looking for a good dentist.

I have been a patient of Dr. Mangigian for over 13 years. He is a true professional. He cares about his clients and has an excellent staff. Appointments are always kept and on time, which I appreciate since I am always running from work or to my children’s school activities. The work that they have done for me and my family is excellent and we have always had a pleasant experience. Dr. Mangigian is the best dentist ever and I refer all my friends and family to him. Thank you for the years of wonderful work and dedication to our community!

I love Dr. Mangigian. I’ve been going to him since I was in high school. I tried a couple other dentists out after I started working but I came back to this office. The staff is great and they do a superb job!! I even convinced my husband to switch to him and he loves this office too!!

Laura Lee (Source: Google)


Dr. Mangigian is always very kind and very gentle. I have had a lot of trouble with my teeth – for as long as I can remember – but he’s been great to take care of any issues that have come up and always makes sure his patients are as comfortable as possible during any procedure. And just to top it off, Dr. Mangigian remembers each of his patients and what’s going on in their lives, and shows genuine interest in you as a person when he sees you. Great Dentist!!!

Dr. Mangigian has really worked wonders for me! I was in bicycling accident and lost my front teeth, he was able to fix a horrible retainer that was made for me by another dentist. Now my teeth look better then they originally were! I am extremely happy with the end result. I would like to add that the big scary needle that almost all people are scared of…. well he numbs the area with a cream so that the needle does not hurt! Can you really ask for anything else?

BEST DENTIST EVER. I can not find words to express how relieved I feel, after getting a root canal done by Dr. Mangigian. After many bad experiences with other dentists, I put off getting work done for years. I ended up with some severe problems, which made me all the more anxious in attempting to find a good dentist. At Dr. Mangigian’s office, the whole staff’s main concern is your comfortability. I felt virtually NO PAIN, and the second I felt anything at all, they numbed me up more and I felt nothing more after that. I can’t say enough good things about this place. I, of course, highly recommend going here; especially if you’re anxious about seeing a dentist- these amazing people will take care of you.

The entire staff is very nice and friendly, it’s more like a family than a dentist office. Most everyone in the office makes an effort to say hello and share their warmth. Bad experiences with dentists in the past leave me very wary and full of anxiety, but Dr. Mangigian (and his staff) are very attentive, concerned with the patient’s experience and comfort, and are professional. If you have to go to the dentist, this is a great place to go.

I love Dr. Mangigian. I’ve been going to him since I was in high school. I tried a couple other dentists out after I started working but I came back to this office. The staff is great and they do a superb job!! I even convinced my husband to switch to him and he loves this office too!!

Dr. Mangigian has been our dentist for at least 15 years! He is very nice, thorough, light handed. The office is always very clean. I am always apprehensive before going to a dentist but Dr.Mangigian and his wonderful staff make you feel very comfortable that you’d feel so relaxed once you’re sitting on that dental chair. SUPER DENTIST – 5 stars out of 5!

Heather S. from Placentia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mangigian is the best dentist out there. I’ve been going to him since I was in high school. After I started working, I switched to other dentists but I never liked them as much as I liked Dr. Mangigian so I quickly came back. We even moved farther away and I still make the trek to Lakewood because Dr. Mangigian and his staff are just the kindest and gentlest office out there. I even convinced my husband to go here and he loves the office! You wouldn’t go wrong in checking them out!!

Gerita W. from Fairfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love Dr Mangigian and staff. They are friendly, technologically up to date, and informative. I was referred by a family member and have never left. I recommend any and everyone to just try them and you will be convinced. Plus, I just recently had my first crown done and I felt good during the procedure and even after there is no comparison to their service and ability to put the patient first.

Robyn V. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Mangigian’s for over 15 years now.  15-years ago, my wife and I were looking for a dentist in the Lakewood area that had great skills with young children; we had two boys ages 5 & 7 at that time.  Dr. Mangigian was recommended to us by some friends.  What a find!!!  Great staff all around!!  If someone is looking for a dentist in the Lakewood area, I always recommend Dr. Mangigian.  He is great with kids and adults.  Thank you all!!!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Mangigian for over 20 years. I always enjoy visiting with the kind and compassionate staff and my teeth are in great shape. Dr. M is a great dentist and I feel very fortunate to have him as my dentist. Everyone is so friendly and professional that I actually look forward to going!

Kathleen Oneslager (Source: Google)


I used to cringe when I needed to visit the dentist. Dr. Mangigian and his staff changed all that! The entire staff makes you feel like family and treats patients accordingly from making the appointment until they walk you out after the work is finished! They take pride in their work and this filters down to the patient’s happiness in the work completed. I am a very satisfied customer!!

Tina R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


5 months ago I picked Dr. Mangigian due to his high online ratings because I needed a major dental work, had not seen a dentist in years and had no one in mind.  I am very grateful I made that choice.  Dr. Ray is professional, he does quality work, he is very gentle and most importantly, unlike other dentist I’ve seen, he’s not about profit.  I was surprised from my first visit that he tried to work around my budget and save me money because I did not have insurance and had to pay cash out of pocket.  I had to have put in crowns on most of my upper teeth in addition to root canal, cleaning and bleaching.  His stuff is highly skilled, professional and very caring. They see you promptly, you never have to wait in line, and also they call you, email you, and leave you messages for appt. reminders.  Not to mention they have free wifi and are very kid friendly.  If you are in need of cosmetic work, Dr. Ray is your man.  I’m also taking my 10 yr old there now because they are virtually painless and very gentle.  I can not praise this dentistry highly enough and strongly recommend them for all your dental needs.

Frank A. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very professional dental office who actually care about their patients. YES this is the place you want to go if it’s been a long time since your last visit or you’re just  afraid of dentist. Let me tell you, Doctor Ray and is staff are the best, they actually show you all your x-ray’s on a monitor/screen, they explain the procedure they will do to your teeth. Don’t worry about the part when the dentist ” nums ” your mouth. IT DOESN’T HURT. He has a special technique, you won’t feel anything at all (the needle) !!!  Also, they let you have good headphones with your choice of music, you won’t hear anything (the drilling sound). I don’t have any dental insurance and Dr.Mangigian worked with my $$$ budget, he even gave me a break (couple of things he didn’t charge me for). I’m very very satisfied with the work they did, it’s nice to see that they will do anything to make sure that you can SMILE again. Keep up the good work, THANK YOU.

Mark L. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mangigian and his staff are great! My daughter was complaining of a tooth ache and when my wife called to see when would be a good time for having it looked at, they said right away! Fast service with a smile and making my daughter smile better as well as be able to eat without pain. Fantastic!

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


I have to agree with Jimmy Vs post. Dr Mangigian is the best dentist i have ever been to. His entire staff is very caring and very prefessional. The staff and Dr made every effort to make sure i was in no pain at all. I have never felt more comfortable in a dentists chair.

Chris Montrone (Source: Google)


In my time of coming here (8 yrs), not once have I ever had any issues making an appointment for any reason. Dr. Mangigian and his staff make you feel like family and always have the best interests in you. So as long as his practice is open. Dr. Mangigian will be my dentist for my family!!

Hello, my name is Tina. 5 months ago I was ashamed of my teeth and scared to death of going to a random dentist. All I knew was that I could no longer go on covering my smile or making sure my teeth don’t show when I laugh. I read every review on every dentist possible in the area (Long Beach/Lakewood) and put my trust in Dr. Mangigian’s high ratings. Today not only I give him and his staff 5 stars but I’m so grateful that I made the right choice. You could not find a more qualified and wonderful doctor (Dr. Ray), a more skilled and caring assistant (Katie), a gentler hygienist (Susie) and a more professional manager (Raquel). I never had to wait to be called in, everyone greeted me by name, they were prompt with making appointments, and always took care of any concerns I had down the line. On top of all that, they provide a top-notch dental work. I had crowns done on all my upper teeth, plus a root canal, and cleaning/ whitening. Every procedure was virtually painless and I’m looking forward going back for continuous work. I’m already getting lots of compliments, I can smile without worry and most importantly I got my confidence back. I am highly recommending Dr. Mangigian for all your dental needs.

I’m 40 and my parents have a Polaroid photo of me and my two siblings, hanging in their home when we were young enough to pick a prize from the treasure chest, adorning big pearly white smiles at this Lakewood dentist office. We never understood the stigma and fear of dentists that others spoke of because we were spoiled by the best dentist in SoCal. He and his team have always provided, for 3 generations of Blancos… my kids included, the most comfortable and enjoyable experience. I have only come to learn how good he his by seeking dental services elsewhere only to understand what others were talking about. I get it now. There’s a difference and Dr. Raymond Mangigian is the only man I trust in my mouth with sharp objects and power drills. Getting to know him, my theory is that the motor skills he uses in his leisure playing Jazz Saxophone transfer over into how efficient and delicate his hands can control a syringe or scaler. Think the speed of Doc Holiday, the smooth of Stan Getz and the sweetness of the Tooth Fairy. That’s what I’ve always known a dentist visit to be and why my parents drive from Brea, brother from Orange and my sister and her family drive from Whittier to see Dr. Mangigian. Ignorance of any other dentistry is bliss.

I started going to Dr. Mangigian last year and I no longer fear going to the dentist. I feel very comfortable and confident with Dr. Mangigian’s experience. He and his wonderful staff are always so very courteous and friendly. They are truly a team of professionals. If you have the need for a new dentist I would highly recommend Dr. Mangigian. Plus, no lengthy periods of sitting in the waiting room wondering when your name will be called. They are very prompt!

Dr. Mangigian is a fabulous dentist! He is very gentle which makes it a pleasant experience. He is honest and trustworthy, which is hard to come by these days! Before I went to him, I hated my smile because my front teeth are very short. He did veneers to make my teeth longer and now I love my smile. I even got to pick out which shade of white I wanted them. He did a great job.

I’ve been with Dr. Mangigian since he started in Lakewood (33 years ago). I would not go anywhere else and have recommended him to others. Excellent staff as well!

Gene Whittaker (Source: Facebook)


Dr Mangigian and staff are the best ever. The treatment is professional and courteous. The doctor gives you good sound advice for your dental needs. I’ve been a patient for 3 years and recommend this dental office highly.
