Lekesha W. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you so much Redondo Beach Dental Group. My experience here with my grandmother was such a great one. We fully enjoyed the helpfulness of the staff and the patience with the doctor. I came to this particular dental group because I heard such remarkable reviews from one of its staff members that I’ve trusted for years. And after our time here I must say, “I was not disappointed at all with the outcome.”  Dr. Stalley is a very knowledgeable dentist and ultimately shared that knowledge as he worked on my 91 years old grandmother. I was so impressed with the work that he did. Not once was my grandmother scared or afraid. She sat back and relaxed and trusted the work he provided. The facility was amazing and the price for the work he did was well worth it! People say you get what you pay for and I can honestly say, “I got my money’s worth!”  Thank you again Redondo Beach Dental Group you did an awesome and amazing job. Special shout out to Dr. Stalley for implementing such a great place and to his assistant Tina that worked diligently with him throughout my grandmothers process.

Finding a new dentist is always hard especially when you don’t know anyone else that can recommend one in your area. I found this place on Google and it had a few reviews so I gave it a try and couldn’t be happier! The staff on the phone were so nice and helpful and cheery when I booked the appt! They also sent follow up text reminders about my appt and emailed the forms ahead of time that I would need for the first appt.  Going in for the appointment was even better. Everyone working was incredibly kind and took the time to explain processes and findings and also educated me as the appt went on. I would highly recommend this place to anyone looking for a new dentist office!

Going to the dentist had been a big phobia in my life. However, I do have to say this place has changed my experience with dentists completely. Everyone in this place is a sunshine. They are great professionals but most importantly, great people. The customer care is outstanding. They follow up, they take care of you, they make sure you understand the procedures and the billing. They are very sensitive to the fact that we are all busy and is important to respect time. Highly recommend this Dental Office.

Heather C. from Newport Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming here for 15 years and have nothing but incredible things to say about every single visit. Their office is immaculate, staff is friendly and consistent. You can tell they treat their staff like family which speaks volume about the character of their management. Front desk staff is genuinely friendly and always does a great job of getting appointments that work for your schedule. Dr Stalley has taken care of me since I was in college, I am now I’m my mid 30’s. Numerous fillings, Invisalign, my first crown. Through all of his I have felt safe (I hate needles and get super nervous) and always feel like I’m getting exactly what I need. He is ahead of the game when it comes to medical advances as well, so you have top of the line treatment. All in all, make an appointment and their office will speak for itself. I really appreciate businesses that are run like this that set the bar for heir industry and for customer service in general. THANK YOU!!!

I can honestly tell you that the Redondo Beach Dental Group is the best of the best. Dr. Stalley and Dr. Pino are top notch dentists who are experts in their field. They are both extremely professional, courteous, knowledgeable & patient. Both doctors go way above and beyond what I would expect from a typical dentist. They are nothing shy of Fantastic. Their front office staff is always very pleasant and they always greet me with a warm smile. I have been going here for years and I plan on remaining a loyal patient for years to come. Keep up the awesome work guys!

Debra D. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stalley and his staff provide the best dental service I have ever experienced. They are consummate professionals both perfectionists and kind compassionate human beings. Each member of the staff (dentists, assistants, hygienists, and office staff) is credentialed, capable and dedicated to providing the highest quality of service possible. The most exciting thing about Dr. Stalley and his staff is that they embrace and are enthused with continuing education and new technology. The ability to provide better standards with less discomfort and more time efficiency really thrills them. Due to this commitment to their profession, I have benefitted, not only by their high level of professionalism, but also by being able to enjoy a full range of services including: general dentistry, orthodontics and periodontics. I am grateful that I am patient of Dr. Stalley proud to highly recommend Dr. Stalley and his staff for those who are interested in the best dental care available.

Dick B. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


Like many other reviewers, I have been with Dr. Stalley for longer than I can remember.  Throughout that time, he and the staff have consistently been the best in the South Bay if not greater Los Angeles. ALWAYS thoughtful, caring, and professional. Several reviewers also note that Dr. Stalley is constantly ahead of the curve technologically as well.  My latest trip actually required that tech: a super accurate three-dimensional placement of an implant that could place the thinnest of implants in an area of bone that only the most modern equipment could even find. Keep on smilin.

Allison S. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to this dental office for more than 20 years. I started going to Dr. Stalley and stayed with him because he was the first dentist who could care for my teeth without hurting me. When he gives you novocaine, he first does a wipe of a topical anesthetic, then a stronger topical and finally the shot itself which he administers so slowly you never feel any pain at all.  And I’m a big baby! I get my teeth cleaned by Jill (3x/year) and she gives me a blanket (they keep it cold in there), a kid’s sized bite block to keep my mouth open so I’m not sore, I put in my headphones and then goes at it. I get so comfortable that I’ve actually fallen asleep when she’s working.  Note the big baby part! You won’t believe all of the above if I don’t give one criticism, right? The only thing I’ll say is that they often get extra excited about new high tech procedures and techniques, but they don’t give me a hard time if I decline. I don’t have a lot of places I’d give 100% marks to but Dr. Stalley, Jill, and Al the technician do a fantastic job

Janismarla R. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I can’t say enough wonderful things about this dental office–Dr. Stalley and the entire staff make you feel so COMFORTABLE and RESPECTED. He listens and spends any time necessary to explain why he feels you need the dental work he recommends. He does meticulous work and even gave me his home telephone number if I needed him after a procedure! There is NEVER any pressure. They go out of their way to make your experience a positive one, including your choice of watching DVDs or listening to your favorite CDs while they work on you! I feel very fortunate to have found this dental office. I will continue to go there and recommend Dr. Stalley and Redondo Beach Dental Group to anyone looking for a GREAT dentist and a POSITIVE dental experience!!

I would highly recommend this place. The staff is very courteous and friendly. Place is very clean. Appointments are sometimes hard but not difficult to obtain to meet your schedule (I think it’s do to the high clientele they have which gives you an idea that their service is great!). The work they’ve performed on my family has been great! No complaints. They make their own crowns and fit them on the same day which is perfect time saver.

Alex H. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time at this dental office and I must say it truly lived up to the reputation. My wife was recommended this place by one of her coworkers and recently I told her I thought I might need a root canal and or wisdom teeth pulled. We both called today and were able to score an appt in the afternoon. The staff is very kind and welcoming. The tech whom name escapes me gave me a little tour which was kinda neat and took my X-rays. She was very pleasant and sweet. She made sure she wouldn’t cause any discomfort to my teeth since I already told her what was going on. Anyways I told the doctor my problem and he said they could get it fixed ASAP and I was gonna schedule my appt for the following week. Right before I was gonna leave the room he came back and said “You know what I can’t let you just leave you came in pain and I want to help as much as I can. Hopefully it’s the best case scenario but if not we will get it started anyways.” So he did, 2 hours later and he did the best work possible. Better than another dentist office which I visited early last year which will remain unnamed. I left the office super happy and, you guessed it, without pain!!! Dr. Stalley truly loves his craft and his work speaks volumes. Tina his assistant was wonderful and the front desk was truly amazing. Working in customer service, I can truly appreciate this kind of care and attention. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. Thank you Dr. Stalley and ladies for your wonderful work.

You do not realize how awesome a dentist is until you have to go elsewhere. I have been going to Dr Stalley and the team at RBDG for many years, then last year I was out of town and had to have some minor work done – oh my!!! All I can say is I could not wait to get back so I could see Dr Stalley again. Not that the other dentist was bad, just not as good as Dr Stalley. The staff is professional, friendly, helpful and the doctors are gentle, kind and so knowledgable. I always feel SAFE when I visit them. I drive over an hour just to go, so you know it is well worth it!

David C. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Excellent dental group. My journey with RBDG started with needing an emergency root canal. I called their emergency line on a Saturday and Dr Stalley called me back within 5 minutes. Since then, I’ve been a dedicated patient to improve my dental health. Prior to my root canal visit i hadn’t been to a dentist in ages. My first regular visit they took pictures and x-rays and set up a dental plan with me and explained every detail and pricing of it all.  The office is a little small but that’s fine. All the staff is very friendly and non judgmental whatever health your teeth are in. They’re very gentle and always make sure you are comfortable.  They have all the latest technology and even massage chairs while you wait! Parking can be a bit tough unless you go in the morning. I suggest parking on the street.

Hillary A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a loyal patient since moving to LA in 1996!  The friendly, knowledgeable staff and Dr. Stalley are wonderful and caring enough to go through procedures and billing issues with you to make you feel comfortable.  I smile with confidence with them on my side.  I have had my wisdom teeth pulled, cavities filled and many cleanings and check ups throughout the years with their state of the art equipment and gorgeous offices.  They are top notch!

Steve Kalafut (Source: Google)


When I moved here I knew I would need major dental work done, so I shopped around locally to 4 Dentists offices, and chose RBDG. 2 years later, I am still confident this is the best care I could possibly receive. They are professional and customer focused from the waiting room (where I’ve never waited 10min) to the dental chair to the finance handling. Treatment comes with an explanation of options and justifications for each, so you know exactly what you are paying for and why. Dr. Stalley and Dr. Capio have been excellent in handling my extensive work, which includes fillings, orthodontics, and a dental implant on my front tooth. I highly recommend to everyone!

Katja Glass (Source: Facebook)


I’ve been going to RBDG since 1985. I’ve never had anyone else work on my teeth. Thankfully, my teeth and gums are healthy, but much is attributed to their thorough maintenance schedule of cleanings, exams, checkups and my overall home care. The staff over the years have been great. My hygienist, Nora, is terrific and Lorri and the office staff are friendly and courteous. Thank you, Dr. Stalley and staff, for many years of dental care and I hope for many more years of healthy teeth, gums and to keep smiling. Thank you! Katja Glass

Chrissy O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Stalley as a dentist since my teens, and all I can say is that I refer all my friends from out of town to him.   He’s gentle, I never feel any injections or discomfort when he’s worked on me, and he always explains everything he’s doing and why he’s doing it in detail – sometimes too much so – way more than other doctors I see.  I don’t feel that the previous reviews reflect any of my experiences there.  He’s a USC dental school alum, and when I see him, he’s always talking about some new conference or seminar he’s going to for some cutting edge treatment.  If you want the cheapest dentist in town, he’s not that; he doesn’t cut corners on quality to save you a buck.  And he does have other  dentists  at the office (who seem to be slightly less $) that some of my friends have gone to see, and they’re happy with them from what I can tell.  To say he is a used car salesman of dentists, sounds like someone has some kind of agenda..

I was experiencing an excruciating and serious dental emergency. It was late and their office was closed so I contacted their emergency line. Dr. and Mrs. Stalley graciously stayed several hours past normal operating time. They were extremely professional and genuinely cared about my well-being. A day after they called to follow up with me to make sure i was feeling okay. I highly recommend this office. Dr. Stalley is now my new dentist!

Frumencio C. (Source: Google)


Dr. Stalley performed a fantastic job on my dental implants. The implants look and feel great. He was very professional from the initial consultation to the final installation of the crowns. His approach were holistic and his methods were systematic. Everything was planned, deliberate and intentional which left nothing to chance and no guessing. His caring and professional attitude gave me confidence that it was going to be done right which put me at ease. He was very meticulously focused and didn’t stop until the final implant procedure was done just right even if it meant working overtime. Furthermore, his dental clinic is well equipped with the state of the art equipment and machines. Also, his dental assistants and front office personnel were very friendly and provided impeccable service. Dr. Stalley and his staff always greeted me with heart-felt smile. I was in good hands and felt like I was part of the family and not just a patient. This has made my dental implant experience a very pleasant one.

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


I have been to many dentists over the years and Dr. Stalley and his team are by far the BEST! I have been going here for over 8 years and have no plans to change dentist ever. I joke and say my mom gave me the bad set of teeth as I can almost get a cavity from drinking water – so staying atop of my dental hygiene is imperative to keep these pearly whites intact. Dr. Stalley and his team are meticulous and catch issues before they become issues. They are great about sharing new dental routines I can employ to keep my teeth and gums healthy.   I always feel like I am getting the latest and best treatments available as Dr. Stalley ensures the team is current on the newest technology and receives regular training. I left L.A. 3 years ago with a completely healthy mouth and was seeing a dentist in my new city regularly – still getting cleanings 4 times a year.  I began having issues again and unfortunately came back to L.A. with several dental issues despite regular visits.  Needless to say I called Redondo Beach Dental upon returning to L.A.  I always knew Dr. Stalley and his team were a cut above other dental offices and this proved it!  I strongly recommend you make this your new dental office.

Joe L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a sudden toothache that was getting worse by the hour. and called Redondo Beach Dental Group. Even though they were double-booked for the day, they squeezed me in on short notice. Their normal working hours typically end at 4:30 pm but they worked an extra hour to perform an emergency root canal on me late on a Friday afternoon. It would have been difficult for me to  get through the weekend without that treatment because an infection was spreading fast. They also scheduled me for the last portion of the procedure on the following Monday. They have done excellent work for me for the past 17 years since Dr. Stalley was the only practicing dentist there. Since then,  Dr. Stalley has hired a team of talented dentists and professionals  and good care is even more readily available. They really came through for me and I really appreciate them.

Lou Shapiro (Source: Facebook)


I’m very cautious about dentists. This group has given me every confidence, & more than exceeded expectations. I’ve had all kinds of work. Cleaning, cavities, scans, crowns, bridgework, … Their work is superior – & I’ve seen a wide variety of practices. I couldn’t believe how quick & perfectly they replaced several old crowns. Their hygienists are gentle, friendly, extremely competent, … & they taught me even better hygiene than I had already achieved. They can provide every service. And, they’ll steer you to the best pro for the task. They also remedied the suffering I’d endured for many years due to sensitive teeth. There can’t be better.

Taylor K. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Redondo Beach Dental and seeing Dr. Stalley for over ten years. They are always on the forefront of new advances in dentistry with a very modern approach. Their customer communication is excellent and you always know exactly what type of work they recommend, why, and how much it will be out of pocket, in advance. I’ve seen prior dentist that seem more like a bad car mechanic doing unnecessary work. With their advanced cameras and technology, Dr. Stalley is always able to show me exactly what is wrong and why it needs to be fixed. I recently had a crown put in. Two things on this procedure: 1, They are able to make the crown themselves and have it be a one-day procedure, as opposed to many other places where they put a temporary crown on, the actual crown is made at a lab, and then a second appointment is needed for the fitting of the new crown. And 2, though this makes for a long appointment (3 hours), you have the option to watch a DVD from their decent sized selection which helps take your mind off the uncomfortable parts of the appointment and pass the time quicker. The staff is always professional and very helpful. Nora is my hygienist and I highly recommend her.

Sheri F. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient at Redondo Beach dental group for over 20 years because they are the best…Although the staff has changed, they remain professional, courteous and efficient…I highly recommend Dr. Stalley and his team, they are simply the best.  after an extraction I joked with him and said, “If I did not need my teeth, you could pull them anytime”. The experience was that painless…Thank you to Redondo Beach Dental Group.

Kyrstie S. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I phone interviewed dentists while looking for the right place when I first moved to Redondo Beach! I had a wonderful conversation and was invited to come and tour the facility and to see first hand that they are a group of people who enjoy their work and have fun. Fun? Dentist? What? These would not be words I would use to describe the dentist… its more like fear, anxiety, and made to feel bad. So needless to say, I was intrigued. Laurie was right! But more importantly than fun, I felt like I was in partnership with my hygienists to get my mouth back in shape! The dentists I have worked with there have taken the time to explain things to me without making me feel bad for having a cavity. They have also been there when I needed them.  I was 7 months pregnant and had a concern for a pain in my mouth and what problem that might present for my baby. The on call dentist met me in the office on a  Sunday and was professional enough to ask me to bring someone withe me, which put me at even more ease. After my son was born, they allowed me to bring him into the office for cleanings. I never thought I would right a review for a dentist, let alone a good one, but the folks at Redondo Beach Dental have EARNED every star! After moving 20 miles away, I still make the trek! Each and every staff member has contributed to altering my experience of going to the dentist!

Barbranne H. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not only the friendliest staff but all very professional. The dentists and assistants are all 5 stars. I have a lot of fears from the horrors of past dentists, pain, shots, etc.. Not here you will find the most considerate and amazing dentists here, the least amount of pain and very careful if injections are needed. Up to date modern equipment, no sending stuff off to the lab and gagging on the horrors of that temporary crap in your mouth. Plus they guarantee and stand behind their work, something many dentists claim, but do not.

Sylvia S. from Keaau, HI (Source: Yelp)


Looking for an experienced and compassionate dentist? Dr. Stalley is definately the one?  I have been a patient for almost 20 yrs and it just gets better with time.  Dr. Stalley LOVES what he does and it is demonstrated in the SKILLED and BEAUTIFUL outcome of his work. He is continually staying ahead of dental technology. My veneers and caps look like my own teeth, however more beautiful. My experience is one of such great appreciation. Dr. Stalley explains (in layman terms) what your X-rays represent. He shares with you what he is going to do and why. Even during the procedure he checks with you that all is well. Bottom line he REALLY listens to you and any concerns you may have. The staff is professional and courteous and the energy of the office is pleasing, comforting and clean. Most have been with him for many years which is a reflection as to how he treats him team. In need of a dentist RUN don’t walk to see Dr. Stalley.  You won’t be disappointed!

Peggy Phuong T. from South Redondo, Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Stalley’s office for years. I have recommended Dr. Stalley in this forum, but it has been so long ago, I would like to give an update. Dr. Stalley and his entire staff are still the best in my opinion. They are very attentive and caring. Dr. Stalley has tremendous experience in dentistry and it shows. He also invested a great deal back in his business with all the latest and greatest technology to make his patients’ visits as comfortable as possible. I am a really big chicken when it comes to dental treatments; yet with Dr. Stalley’s gentleness, all of my treatments were great. By the way, I also really love my dental hygienist (Kathy) and Dr. Stalley’s dental assistance (Alena). Dr. Stalley told me about the PerioGel treatment for my teeth and it has been a game changer for me.

Teri S. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Every single appointment has been a pleasure. The staff is professional and friendly, our hygienist is great at explaining each step to both kids and adults, exams never feel rushed and they seem to truly care about their patients. Last year, our insurance coverage changed dramatically and RBDC was no longer in our network. As a result, we had to visit a new dentist and it was a total nightmare. I already knew RBDC was awesome, but now I have an even greater appreciation of their commitment to outstanding customer service after experiencing the exact opposite! There seem to be a lot of good dentists and I know for sure there is at least ONE terrible dentist, but if you are looking for a GREAT dentist, you’ll find it at this office. A bit of advice: if a dental practice has less than a 5-star YELP review…keep looking. When people take the time to post pictures of botched dental procedures and go on to write scathing reviews, it proves how important good customer service is. GO WITH YOUR GUT when you see several negative posts. Avoid all of the potential problems by simply visiting the Redondo Beach dental Group. I mean, check it out–ZERO NEGATIVE REVIEWS!

SS. W. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s an amazing dental clinic. My hygiene did a great job cleaning my teeth with no pain. The office is also very bright and professional. I felt relaxed and calm during the whole visit. They are also great at handling financial/insurance paperwork. They always let me know how much I need to pay before my visit. Unlike the dentist I had before, I paid them co-pay on the day of my visit and then I receive unclear bill in my mail a month later. It doesn’t happen at Redondo Beach Dental Group. They tell me how much my insurance covers, how much I need to pay out of my pocket, get my service done, and don’t need to worry about financial aspect afterward. I feel like I can trust them. Highly recommended!

This was our first time here.. I have to say this office is amazing!! From making the appointment to the visit today for our cleanings… they were amazing! Very easy to talk to, my son was in the next room getting his cleaning while I was being examined and they kept me informed about everything they found and what he needed done.. estimates for the follow up dental work we needed were prepared very quickly. Office is set up very nicely , very clean and my dentist and hygienist were amazing!!

Redondo Beach Dental Group is the epitome of excellent and professional service. Dr. Stalley goes out of his way to accommodate my schedule, even though his is even busier, and he always takes the time to answer all the questions I have (and make sure I understand the answer). My Invisalign results with him have been fantastic so far. The rest of the staff is really nice as well. I would definitely recommend Dr. Stalley and Redondo Beach Dental.

Jacqueline Nelson (Source: Facebook)


I called for information because I had learned of a cutting edge technique they offered because I was looking to change dentists. I was very impressed with Lorey who answered all my questions and suggested I come for a free consultation. I was emailed paperwork explaining the policies of the office, and my health history, etc. The consultation was awesome, I was given several options and assured the quality of service was outstanding and was shown an in house insurance plan.

Mike Maddalena (Source: Google)


Dr. Stalley and his staff are the best. From the moment you walk in you know you are in good hands. I fly back from Nashville for any large procedure because I know Dr. Stalley will never hurt. I have never been to a dentist where you were given a shot and not feel it. Dr. Stalley is amazing and you never feel his shots. I wish he would have been the first dentist I went to, that way I would have never feared going to the dentist in the first place. They also make their crowns in house so there is no having to come back multiple days to have your teeth fixed. Thank you for taking such good care of me.

Danielle G. from Pacific Palisades, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Stalley and the rest of his staff are amazing. My whole family has been going here forever, literally my whole life. Every time anyone ever needs a dentist, I recommend RBDG to them. Dr. Stalley is gentle, enthusiastic, and a perfectionist. I moved out of the country and flew back just to get dental work. I won’t trust anyone else in my mouth!! He has done regular dental work for me, ie cavities, as well as implants. One implant is in the very front of my mouth, and no one can ever tell that it is fake! Such good quality work. Plus the front office staff are amazing! Cannot recommend them more!!


At Redondo Beach Dental Group, we believe in providing the “fine art of dentistry” through technology and experience. We are a dedicated group of friendly and patient-oriented doctors, hygienists, assistants and support staff who believe in doing our work right the first time and treating our patients like family members. Many members of my team have been with me for nearly 15 years and have been recognized professionally by their peers over these years. I count myself lucky to work with every one of them. Born and raised in Los Angeles, I currently live in Rolling Hills Estates with my wife, Laurey, who is also my new patient concierge. We have three grown children, all of whom are married, and have four grandchildren with another one on the way. I enjoy traveling, golf, backgammon, learning foreign languages (I am fluent in German), outdoor water sports, swimming, boating and cars, both antique and exotic. I am involved in various community fundraisers as well as volunteering one day a week providing dental care to the needy through the nonprofit Children’s Dental Center of Greater Los Angeles. I believe in the true and lifelong art of dentistry and am most passionate about helping and empowering others to be healthy and understand their dental needs. It has always been my goal to see my patients healthy and disease-free. I accomplish this by sharing my knowledge one-on-one and delivering high-quality dentistry. To me, dentistry is and always has been exciting and challenging because every person and clinical situation is different. I see this as an opportunity to build a personal relationship with every patient and provide them with the best possible care. New technology and clinical innovations in dentistry are progressing at an amazing rate. I believe it is imperative to stay current through continuing education in all aspects of dentistry. I have consistently completed hundreds of hours of continuing education over the past decade and was honored to be the recipient of the USC School of Dentistry’s Outstanding Commitment to Lifelong Learning Award. In 2010, I also became an associate fellow of the American Academy of Implant Dentistry and hope to soon become a diplomate in the coming year. In the 30-plus years I have been practicing dentistry, I have had the opportunity to expand my knowledge in several different areas. I have conducted clinical research in my practice using lasers and CAD/CAM technology, published in the California Journal of Dentistry, and lectured on porcelain veneers, laser dentistry and computer-guided implant dentistry throughout the world.
