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

Simply the best. I first came to Dr. Silkman’s office years ago with significant jaw problems (8 years of orthodontia as a child had pulled my jaw badly out of line, and the bone then grew into that position, leaving me with a permanently distorted jaw, impaired circulation, pain, and other TMJ issues). Dr. Silkman’s expertise and remarkable gentleness have helped immensely. Even more, he’s concerned for the well-being of the entire person, and has offered nutritional suggestions which have made a huge difference in my overall health. His dental hygienist, Simone, is also the best I’ve ever used. Her exceptional skill and sensitive touch mean super-clean teeth without discomfort. And even the front desk people are always courteous, helpful, and friendly. I feel truly fortunate to have found this dentist and the outstanding level of care he and his staff provide.

Dr. Silkman, is an excellent skilled dentist. After getting taken by other dentists that basically just want to crown my entire mouth. I went to Dr. Silkman. He was able to save quite a few of my teeth with no crowns! A lot of dentist’s just want to bilk your insurance carrier and do the most expensive procedure, but not Dr. Silkman. I have been seeing him for over 8 years now and absolutely no complaints!

I can’t recommend Janine enough.. she is such an amazing massgae therapist – so knowledgeable and professional. Janine helped me get over a chronic back pain and I am forever grateful. I highly recommend seeing her

Londin W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Driving home from my first appointment with Dr Silkman, I took a big exhale knowing I found *MY* dentist, the one who would care for my teeth for the rest of my life. If I ever have to move away from LA, I will fly back just to see Dr Silkman. My teeth matter and he’s the guy I trust with them. Not only is Dr Silkman a genius, he is also the most energetically-sensitive doctor I have ever met. He was able to save me from having a crown I didn’t need. He was able to stop intense sensitivity I had been suffering for over a year in one single appointment using light therapy. And, he was patient, kind and caring. I’m so happy I found him.

Dr. Silkman is not just a good dentist who corrected many problems, some caused by previous dentists.  He is excellent in his holistic and natural approach of how dental work affects the whole body.  Recently with a device he designed solved a painful bite problem I had.  His well trained staff is competent and treat patients with kindness and respect.

Cam E. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am happy to have found Dr. Silkman. He was recommended to me by my natural-path doctor. Let me count the ways that I appreciate him! His kindness and gentle touch have healed me from my past less than desirable dental experiences. I feel very confident in the integrity of his methods and diagnosis. I have never felt so good about the condition of my teeth. His entire office staff are warm, accommodating and highly professional. I do have to drive several hours in traffic to get there but it is so worth it!

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


I’ve had problems with sensitivity in my gums for years.  I was fortunate to meet Dr. Silkman at a wedding.  He gave me a number of recommendations and I just had the best, easiest, most pain-free cleaning I’ve ever had…and I no longer have to use chemicals to achieve these results.  I live out of town so I can’t personally go to Dr. Silkman’s office, but the fact that he took time out of enjoying a wedding to give me advice, and the fact that his advice has proven successful, shows me that he’s the guy I would recommend if you’re on the west side of Los Angeles.

I’ve been going to Silkman for several years now. I’ve had a history of dental “challenges” and have had most procedures one can have. Thus far, Silkman is the only dentist I’ve actually looked forward to visiting in my entire life. I don’t like feeling pain and Silkman is very gentle and concerned in that dept. His staff is friendly. He won’t do unnecessary work on you. He doesn’t like pulling teeth, or using toxic materials. So if you’re looking for bargain dental work, he’s not your guy. However, if you want a quality experience, Silkman’s going to cost a little more, but it will be worth it.

Carrie M. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Silkman for about 13 years now and he’s the best!  I went originally because I was having symptoms of a possibly very difficult health issue.  I had found him after going to a holistic Doctor who recommended I get my fillings replaced.  I found Dr. S and have been a loyal patient since – and have been healthy ever since as well.  His office is friendly, helpful and care.  I would recommend Dr. S. to anyone looking for a great dentist who cares about your health!

Dr. Silkman’s practice deserves all the stars in the sky! It is such a special and rare place I have been moved to post my first yelp review. I don’t think there is a dentist practice like this– where it feels good to be there, where it feels warm and healing to be there. Dr. Silkman is one of the very few dentists out there who practices holistic dentistry, which means he understands that the health of your teeth are connected to your entire health and being, and he makes every effort to be as minimally invasive as possible in any treatment and to use the safest material possible. For Dr. Silkman, it also means to care for his patients from his heart. Dr. Silkman is so magical and connective with children, my extremely shy little son, who was four at the time, hugged him at the end of his first visit. Dr. Silkman is a very special and rare person whose deep dedication to his holistic practice and his authentic caring way evokes deep mutual trust. My son had to go through oral surgery, which went smoothly and beautifully. He had no complications at all and his teeth look beautiful. Dr. Silkman also has an amazing staff of assistants who are top notch, attentive, and helpful in ways we only dream about these days. We received daily follow-up calls after my son’s surgery for the first several days, and weekly calls for two more weeks afterwards to make sure he was recovering well and to answer any questions or concerns. At Dr. Silkman’s practice, part of the treatment is be genuinely cared for, and this is as important to him as his high standards for clinical treatment. I recommend this practice enthusiastically, wholeheartedly and with deep gratitude.

Dr. Silkman helped me tremendously, removing all the metal from my mouth over a 2 year period. He also supported my son and applied healthy orthodontics without removing teeth. He is kind, knowledgable, and committed to the health of his patients.

T. S. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can honestly say that Dr. Silkman is a true doctor! After great recommendation I went to see him for dental work but he changed my life for the better in many ways. I have been his patient for over 15 years, he has replaced over 14 mercury fillings and they are still doing great. He is so caring, gentle, very professional and has so much knowledge beyond just dentistry. He is an amazing soul and a healer! I am so glad to have found him and recommend him highly!!!

Glad to know Janine is teaching others how to be massage therapists. She is truly gifted. Able to work out any muscle troubles with excellence, even the most challenging of Cardassian neck cramps!

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


This is the most skillful under-the radar dentist you will meet. He is gentle, compulsive and detailed oriented and takes great pride in his work. I was referred to him by Dr. Khalsa ( who is one of the best eastern/ western) medicine docs in LA. Dr. Silkman removed all my metal fillings and and replaced them with beautiful white fillings . My smile is 100% nicer and I feel 1000% better knowing I don’t have those harmful mercury fillings in my mouth anymore. If you need a best dentist in the world he is the one for you.

George G. from Mission Viejo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Health begins in the mouth and when I wanted to have my amalgams removed I searched for the best biological dentist and found Dr. Silkman. As a health care practitioner I appreciate the expertise and skill that Dr. Silkman provides. I have been seeing him for 17 years. He sees myself and my family. I confidently refer him  to you. Make an appointment you won’t regret it. He is amazing!

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


You’ll never find a dentist like this one! He saved my life! He tested me for replacement materials for my 13 mercury fillings and after removing the old fillings safely and painlessly, replaced them with the diamond dust fillings which have lasted over twenty years so far. My health issues, fibromyalgia and EB resolved immediately and I am eternally grateful! Thank you, Dr. Silkman! Shae D’lyn

Best dentist in Los Angeles and one of the very best in the United States! Dr. Silkman replaced all my mercury fillings several years ago and I’m very happy I had that done. Mercury is very toxic so you need to find a qualified holistic dentist like Dr. Silkman who is careful to remove the mercury fillings in the safest way possible. He is also a proponent of the work of pioneer dentist, Dr. Weston A. Price, author of “Nutrition and Physical Degeneration”. Dr. Price taught that dental decay is caused by poor nutrition. I used to get new cavities every year or two and have gotten 2 root canals over the years. I haven’t had a cavity in over 8 years since I changed my diet to a WAPF diet (raw milk, cod liver oil, grass-fed meat and eggs, increased cheese, butter and cream), My teeth also do not have the sensitivity they used to have. The brown spots of decay on my front teeth went away completely and my teeth are much whiter and my gums are healthier. Not only that, but believe it or not, I had a chip in my front tooth that actually filled in! UPDATE: I no longer recommend the WAPF organization because they recommend fermented cod liver oil (FCLO) even though I’m pretty sure that stuff is rancid and toxic. Not sure why they keep promoting it. I still recommend a Weston A. Price diet though (just not Weston A Price Foundation). And I still wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Silkman! I went back recently and he fixed a food trap in one of my fillings. He does stellar work.

I’m not one to write these reviews usually, but after reading the horrible review (by dj r. in Burbank, Ca., if I remember correctly) I couldn’t help myself. I think dj must have gone to a different dentist. What was he doing coming all the way tom Westwood from Burbank anyways? Well, I literally just came back from my appointment. The only reason I came to Yelp just now is that I was hoping to remind myself of his hygenist’s first name. She was so sweet and my cleaning was actually a good time for me. Sadly there were few reviews here and no mention of her name. But everyone at Dr. Silkman’s office is as personal as you can imagine. And not fake personable, either, but the kind where if they ran into you outside somewhere they might take the time to say hi and chat and see how you’ve been. My appointment, to be clear, was enjoyable, easy, free of pain, personable and reasonably priced. I couldn’t say enough about them and I’m happy to be going back (I and my gf have been clients for about 8 years now, I think). I can’t recommend Dr. Silkman more.

Wendy K. from Westlake Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had a LOT of dental issues over the last 10 years and really wish I had been seeing Dr. Silkman – I believe I would have avoided much suffering…  But back then I didn’t know enough to appreciate his expertise or be willing to pay what it takes to for someone so skilled.  IMO he’s reasonably priced for a fabulous biological dentist (aka is skilled and caring enough to do what’s best for your teeth, jaw and overall health & wellbeing.)  Years ago I had mercury fillings removed from someone who “thought” they knew how to do it well but they were wrong and I got Mercury poisoning.  I also got Invisalign braces from someone else who “thought” they knew how to adjust my bite and care for my teeth, but I had 4 teeth die in the next 4 years after the mercury fillings were removed and the stress of the braces and mercury affecting my immune system was too much for my teeth…  🙁  Dr. Silkman in contrast knows & cares about people & your teeth & health – holistically.  I’m super sensitive and he is very careful with chemicals.  He understands about the importance of the bite for deep sleep & overall health.  He understands the risks with root canals and mercury fillings and potential health effects and helps you make the best choices.  I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Silkman – he and his staff are super caring and sweet.  I leave his office feeling better than when I got there…  Trust me – you & your teeth are worth it!!

Dr Silkman is a very special dentist. He practices a holistic approach to dentristry which is more integrative in nature and considers the rest of your body and how his work will impact your overall wellbeing. As an example, even when doing the basic cavity filling, he investigates the reaction your body has to each particular chemical that will be part of that filling and finds the one that your body does not have a negative reaction too. Makes ense, doesn’t it? Since that particle will become your permanent fixture for the next 10-15 years and what’s in it could leach into your body or into your food…but I have never heard of another practice that is so dedicated to finding the best and most harmonious solution for you. Before finding out about Dr. Silkman’s practice, I’ve had a lot of dental work done. Coming from an Eastern European style of dentistry (or lack thereof in not so olden times), I have to look for the best in the field. I truly believe that “this is the one for me”. He and his staff are extremely helpful and knowledgeable and sweet. They manage to make a dental appointment the most relaxing hour of my day. And can I just say, my teeth look and feel amazing!!


Our office provides biological dental services taking into consideration whole body health and wellness. We also provide functional orthodontics and T.M.J. services to improve jaw / head / neck alignment as well as emphasize nutritional information to help patients understand truths about decay and tooth breakdown, and consult in overall lifestyle improvements with a network of top allopathic and alternative practitioners in many of the health and wellness fields. After all dental health is part of overall health. Dr. Raymond Silkman has been providing holistic dental care to families for 25 years. His approach considers the interrelationships and influences of body structures, organs and systems as well as the overall nutritional and emotional health of each patient. These typically reveal the underlying causes of dental issues such as decay, periodontal disease, dental crowding and more. His incorporation of alternative health modalities has helped patients bring about profound changes in their well-being. Dr. Silkman’s protocols also include safe removal and detoxification of toxic dental materials, conservative approaches to restorations, functional jaw orthopedics for proper jaw development and care for TMJ and orofacial pain. Through nationwide lectures and his writings, Dr. Silkman educates about how prevention far outweighs the cure. He especially encourages mothers to be aware of the critical importance of nutrition during preconception and pregnancy – stages where the foundation for a child’s entire lifetime is laid. Dr. Silkman’s practice is based in Brentwood, California.
