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

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


Dr. Rita is an excellent dentist; in fact, I rate her skill level noticeably above all the American-trained dentists I’ve ever gone to (she was trained in Russia). She’s the best (most accurate) at giving numbing injections I’ve experienced – other dentists sometimes have required 2 or 3 shots to numb the area properly – not her! . Not only that, she works on Saturdays and into the weekday evenings to accommodate her patients. Also, she does some of the routine cleanings herself – doesn’t just lay that off on an assistant.  She’s very reasonably priced – does the same (or better) work as the high priced guys for much less money.  I know this from personal experience.  A  very nice person to boot. I totally disagree with the bad review given by johnny V.  I had a root canal at Dr. Rita’s office and she brought in a specialist to do it and she assisted.  She’s very professional and I’ll keep using her as long as she keeps practicing.

Dr. Rita has been an absolute life saver this past week! I was chewing on some Milk Duds and the caramel pulled my crown out. My tooth was so sensitive and it was difficult to eat anything. I wanted to get it taken care of right away. Dr. Rita was able to squeeze me in and get molds for a new crown the same day! I was in and out in just an hour. The new crowns just came in today and I couldn’t be happier. They fit perfectly! Dr. Rita and her staff are also super friendly. Great customer service and excellent work. Thank you so much!!

dr. rita, i cannot say thank you enough for the dental services you have provided me.  i have avoided visiting a dentist for years  because past experiences were painful and inferior services rendered.  coming to you, dr. rita, for the first time i can say i enjoy my dental visits.    your dental skills are above the bar.  no one can hold a light to you — you are the light that shines above everyone.  i rate your services, skills, and professionalism a shiney 7 gold stars (lucky 7).
yelp limits my rating to five stars

Dr.Rita,….YOU ARE THE BOMB-TASTIC BUSINESS!!! Which is why when anybody even mentions the dentist I never hesitate to jump in & sing your praises (& pass out your card lol). My co-worker sent me to you, now my family & friends are all loyal customers & they love you just as much!! You are gentle, thorough, do excellent work, & try to make me as comfortable as possible. You are very kind (especially kind to my wallet!), and have a beautiful spirit….thank you, Thank You, THANK YOU!!! and I’m not forgetting your awesome staff either! Love you all so much!!!

Thomas U. from Lake Elsinore, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita is not only a great dentist and dental health specialist, she is a wonderful person as well. In all the years of dental care I ever needed or routinely received as maintenance, I’ve never been as comfortable as in Dr. Metrikin’s chairs! I moved to Lake Elsinore since I retired but will continue to make the drive to West Hollywood to be treated by her! Gaiana and Shake are the greatest office staff/dental assistants I ever met as well and there’s never a problem to accommodate a punctual and reliable appointment! Never had to wait for any unreasonable time to be seen when I had an appointment and was seen immediately in a couple of emergencies! Dental care just doesn’t get better!

Timothy A. from Indianapolis, IN (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita has significantly improved many years worth of damage to my teeth and given me a smile I can be proud of, and there’s still more to do! Of the dentists (and doctors, actually) I’ve seen in my life, Dr. Rita is the most gentle, patient, and kind I have ever had the pleasure of seeing. I am moving home to Indiana next week, and the person I’m going to miss most is my dentist. I NEVER thought I would say that about a person who drills into my teeth, but she’s amazing. Your search for the perfect dentist is over as soon as you walk into her office. Visiting the dentist used to be terrifying for me, but now I look forward to it every time. Thank you, doctor

Thomas U. from Lake Elsinore, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita is the greatest dentist I have ever visited. I was unhappy with my previous dentist for many reasons and was looking around for a new one. One day, while still living in West Hollywood, I got a flier from Dr. Rita’s office in the mail. Her office being only half a mile away , I thought I try to go there. From the first moment I felt good going to her office. Gayana, the receptionist was very friendly, quiet and professional and once I met Dr. Rita I had no doubt I would be in good hands! During the past (almost) three years, Dr. Rita repaired a lot of my problems. I was in big trouble with infected root canals, cavities, need for two bridges and a couple of crowns. Dr. Rita fixed it all with great care and a gentle touch! No matter how complicated, she took care of me. Dr. Rita’s experience, high level of professional ethic and absolute competence in her medical and technical field make her one of L.A.’s top dentists in my opinion. Even when I had a very painful emergency, Dr. Rita took care of me the same day, never mind that her schedule was full and her office was packed with patients! After my emergency treatment, she even called me before the weekend to check that I was OK to get through the weekend as comfortable as possible. Can’t beat that! Dr. Metrikin, her assistant Shake and Gayana are almost like family now! I love those three ladies and their common goal to help their patients, get top results with treatment and have healthy clients leave the office! Don’t let that simple nondescript strip mall location fool you! Behind the door of that simple setting works a powerhouse of dental experts nonpareil! Thank you Dr. Rita, Shake and Gayana! You are a unique team. Thomas U.

Dr. Rita Metrikina is a skilled professional and a very nice and caring person. She extracted my infected shaking molar and I did not experience any pain. She called me few times after this procedure to check my condition. She also made a root channel and a prosthetic three tooth bridge for me. The work was excellent. Her office staff people are polite and caring. I continue my treatment with Dr. Metrikina. This time she did a root canal in my another tooth. Again very neat and professional work. Again no any pain or discomfort, no any pain feeling even when Dr. Metrikina did an initial injection. She has great hands. Thanks!

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


My whole family (wife, daughter and myself) have been Dr. Rita clients for 10 years, and counting to infinity. From teeth cleaning, crowns, root canals – she is the best of the best. Extremely tender hands, up-to-date technology, and a big smile of a professional, confident in herself. Plus big blue eyes on beautiful face. Once my daugther has had a weird swelling on her gum; I called her office. Dr. Rita was leaving the next day to Paris for vacation, dropping by only for half an hour. But she agreed to wait for us, figured out what it was, gave valuable advices how to treat us, didnt’t charge us a dime! Should I say it worked as a charm? Today my wife didn’t feel well, waiting for her turn in the office. Dr. Rita asked her a couple of questions, and figured out a problem – sugar level drop, cause my wife skipped breakfast. Dr. Rita fed her chocolate and hot tea, in ten minutes my wife was good enough to endure root canal procedure. Well, in the hands of Dr. Rita – it’s almost a pleasure. You might say, I little bit in love with her. Nonsense! A lot! U’ll be too, when u see her in person. I was devastated, when my daughter needed braces, and we had to look for someone else; Dr. Rita is not doing them, unfortunately. We are her forever clients till death (or taxes) do us apart. P.S. Her crew is very attentive to smallest needs and pleasure to have around. Highly trained professionals. Strongly recommended. You can park on the street or at neighbouring Ralphs lot. Johnny V -. My wife has had root canal done today with flying colors. And it can’t and shouldn’t ‘come close to LOOKING like a tooth,’ it’s a ROOT CANAL! Bad brain and dirty tongue.

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


Dr. Rita made a set of absolutely beautiful veneers over my front teeth! I’ve gotten so many compliments!! Just a fantastic all-around dentist and office. I must admit, usually I can’t stand going to the dentist’s office, but her touch is very gentle. No pain at all. I shopped around before making up my mind. This office gave me the best price. Not once did I feel rushed and I truly felt taken care of. Dr. Rita personally called me at home the evening after procedure to make sure I wasn’t feeling any pain. She was so nice and very professional! Quite a rare combination. And by the way, all my appointments were after 6 pm …very convenient. I would recommend this dentist to anybody.

Ara H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I managed to fall and face plant on the cement during the earthquake and I damaged my nose, my lip and chipped my front tooth. I was devastated because I just started booking shows in Hollywood and it looked terrible. I went to Dr Rita for help. She did x-rays, cleaned my teeth and told me she could fill my chipped tooth. I didn’t know what to expect bc it was a sharp angle and the a front tooth is very noticeable. When the nurse gave me the mirror to see how it looked, I was absolutely amazed!! So much so that I burst into tears because they were perfect. I didn’t even imagine they could look so great again. Not only did my front teeth look normal again, they actually looked better than before. I couldn’t even see where the chip was anymore. Dr Rita helped me get my confidence back after a traumatic experience. She was so kind and understanding. She’s wonderful to work with and she’s so talented at her craft. I had some bonding done years ago and it was very noticeable, but Dr Rita’s work blended perfectly. I’m so happy to have found her.

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


I love Dr Metrikin.  I would pay my copay just to hang out with her and be soothed by her kindness! The location is not great and neither is the parking, but Dr Metrikin and her staff MORE than make up for it. As I mentioned, Dr and her staff are incredibly nice.  She does not try to upsell you on unnecessary procedures (which seems to happen SO MUCH in recent years.)  She isn’t booked out weeks in advance and even has some evening appointments.  She also had me in and out for an incredibly painless filling in less than 15 minutes!

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


I would like to thank from the bottom of my heart the staff and Dr, Metrikin for giving me my smile back.  I am a 46 y/o male who recently moved to Venice, California  two years ago to do some work in “the industry” as a on-camera host. I have had to wear full upper denture as the result from a car accident twenty years ago.  I broke my current one and could not fly to Florida for another where I had the other made.   I shopped around out here and after a very frustrating two months time all around I ended up at Dr. Metrikin’s by accident.  I am sooo glad I did.  She eased me and told me I would have my gorgeous “Hollywood” smile back in no time and proceeded to focus on just  and nothing else that.  Being a happiness coach, my smile is the most important thing in my life.  She had the quickest turn-around with no additional try in’s than any other dentist I have had before her.  They were also half of what other places quoted me. She did not try selling me additional services and would only let ME focus on one thing at a time as I am wanting implants soon. being new to California and seeing a dentist on almost every corner overwhelmed but I am so glad I ended up here.  It is well worth the drive for me.  They are always on time and sometimes early which is also UNBELIEVABLE to me out here so I tried to give the same respect.  I TRIED I said..  They even understood my one time tardiness.  They also cleaned up my lowers like they have never been before to match the tops.  Long story short because I could go one, If you are looking for a great professional cosmetic team. THIS IS IT!! You can truly tell by the vibe of the place they care about you and not the money. I am not a long reviewer on here for time management purposes, so the fact that I am taking the time in my life to praise them like this with my extremely busy schedule says so much in itself.   I am including a photo of my WONDERFUL teeth and can’t wait for them to start my implant work.  I will give an update on them laterr. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU !

Isabel P. from Miami, FL (Source: Yelp)


Been with this wonderful dentist since I moved to LA 8 years ago. She’s wonderful, always attentive and you don’t need to wait long for an appointment or when you come in to the office. Did so many things with her like root canal, wisdom teeth, cavities, whitening and cleaning and always Satisfied with the results and service. Not only that, she also offers great and affordable prices. Love you DR. Rita

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


Absolutely amazing. I havent been to the dentist in YEARS. one day, out of no where, I had massive pain in a tooth. Went to a nearby dentist who checked me out, and told me I needed a root canal. After seeing a few more, I went to Dr. Metrikin, Crying my eyes out. I was so so so sad, and extremely frightened by pain and dentists, due to something going wrong during a wisdom teeth surgery when I was 17. Dr. Metrikin was very kind towards me, but real, saying “All the men are the babies! you wont feel a thing!” along with lots of other reassuring procedural information. Each visit I felt more and more confident, and even during the novicaine shot today for my root canal, I was all smiled before, during and after I left the office. the day of, I was an absolute wreck. very sad, in many tears, no pain, just afraid. Her staff took a minute to really get down to my level and use some “motherly” love on me; they got me a cup of cold water, and after i was brought down a little bit, she calmly explained that in order for the success of the procedure, I should try my best to breathe deeply and relax. These people are pretty used to people like me! It was apparently 1-2 hours apiece, but it felt like 20 minutes each way, no sedation, no problem. Before you know it, Dr. Metrikin will say “we are all done!” The office is cozy, and you will really gain a personal relationship with the staff, and they work together so well! Dr. Metrikin and her wonderful staff helped me get over my crippling fear of dentists. oh by the way, I came all the way out from Venice for her services! Thanks again!

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


I feel so blessed to have found this dentist!  Dr. Metrikin is one of the best dentist I have ever meet.  Her team is extremely talented and professional.  They truly understand the art of gentle dentistry.  The office is clean, bright, and cheerful.  Appointments are always on time and the work is superior to many other dentist.  I have since moved out of the area but I drive back to Hollywood from downtown because they are that good!  I have had a root canal, fillings and cleaning regularly over the past 7 or more years.  Every service is consistently professional.  As an R.N. and patient, I recommend her without hesitation.

Maggie M. from Redding, CA (Source: Yelp)


Before Dr. Rita, I had experienced the normal symptoms of entering into a dentist office – sweat, anxiety, tears, fear, and worst of all, severe tummy aches. The very idea of a dentist is terrifying – a person entering your mouth and drilling holes in your pearly whites. I have hated all dentists throughout my life, until…I met Dr. Rita. Dr. Rita is an amazing woman, not to mention absolutely beautiful. During ANY procedure – whether it be a check up for a quick cleaning or a root canal due to a wisdom tooth gone bad – Dr. Rita is attentive, precise, and caring. She is always gentle in any procedure and will always do anything and everything to make sure that you are comfortable and not in pain. Most of all, Dr. Rita is a MASTER at giving anesthetic shots. Her hands are made of gold when she administers the shots because not only are they effective and spot on, but they are also so perfectly done that you can’t even feel them. I personally am a huge wimp when it comes to anything that has needles. Knowing this, Dr. Rita will take the necessary extra time to make sure that my shots are completely painless. Additionally, Dr. Rita’s staff is amazing, Her right hand woman, Gianna (sorry if I misspelled that) is an absolute sweetheart. She will accommodate any schedule and will do her best to make sure that your appointment is set to your needs. She is also completely welcoming and helpful during the procedures. She is compassionate and truly cares about the well being of every single person who she greets at the front door. I have been coming to Dr. Rita for many years now. I started there when I was a child and I honestly could not even think of going to anyone else. After all of this time together and the utmost respect given to me and my entire family, I feel that Dr. Rita and her staff are not my doctors anymore, but they are people I can call family. I never would have thought that going into a dentist office would feel so warm and inviting. Thank you for everything that you do, Dr. Rita and making sure that my pearly whites stay healthy and clean. 🙂

Dr Rita is the best and his entire staff are bright and caring professionals. You can feel it immediately when you walk in that you are in the best hands. I recently moved to Irvine and I found Dr Rita on Yelp for a teeth cleaning The service was very quick and I can feel/ see the difference right away! So far I have no complaints about this place and I couldn’t imagine a more perfect dental office! Another thing to note is that they open from 9:30 am to 6 pm. Which was perfect for me since I work full time from 8am to 4:30pm and made it in time before they closed. Highly recommended!

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


I went into Dr. Rita to get a routine checkup and teeth cleaning as she lives close to my house and was very pleased!  The receptionist was very nice and made it easy to schedule the appointment and worked with my insurance company without a problem.  Dr. Rita was very thorough, honest and even took photos on the spot and showed me the issues with my teeth.  I feel that she went above and beyond as a dentist and that is why I have chosen to go back to her to get veneers.  I am very excited and will surely post photos of her work when it is complete!  I would highly recommend Dr. Rita and her staff.

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


I honestly can’t say enough greatest things about Dr. Rita and her staff. First and foremost: thank you for being great Doctor and a wonderful, kind person. I know for a fact, it is a rarity these days. Secondly: thank you for saving me nearly $2,400 that another dentist wanted me to pay him for the problems that I’ve never had. I mean, this might sound silly, but thank you for your honesty and professionalism to spend near an hour with me and not finding any need for fillings and root canals! I consider myself very lucky to find this Dentist here on Yelp. But what impressed me the most, as I arrived for my appointment a bit earlier, and while sitting in the waiting room, I started a little chat with the lady and her husband sitting next to me. To my total amusement, they told me they drove all the way from Vegas to see Dr. Rita… As crazy as this sounds, they said, at the end of the day they save money and receive great service. Thanks again Dr. Rita!

Let me start this by saying before visiting Dr. Rita, I hadn’t been to the dentist in years. My last major dental visit was uncomfortable and they kept trying to upsell me on procedures. It felt less like a dentist visit and more like a business transaction. As a result of the pain and pushiness, I developed a phobia of visiting dentists. My gf finally pushed me to see a dentist, which is how I ended up in Dr. Rita’s office. I’ve been seeing her regularly ever since! I explained to the receptionist about my fear during my 1st visit and everyone was very good about calming me down and educating me about the process. Dr. Rita has a good bedside manner and is very gentle. I have sensitive gums and I never felt any pain during my routine teeth cleaning. The cleanings are thorough and my teeth feel squeaky clean after. Extra plus is I never feel pressured to get any treatments done or upsold on anything.

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


Dr. Rita is an excellent dentist and very moderately priced too.  I’m 64 and have gone to any number of dentists over the years and overall have found her to be the most skilled.  Her technique for administering novocaine is pinpoint and the least painful and most effective I’ve ever experienced.  When I needed a root canal she arranged for it (she has a specialist come in while she assists) at a cost that was about half that of a typical expensive Westside dentist.  She’s also very patient and good at showing you exactly why and where the work is that she feels must be done.  If you learn a few words of Russian it’s a nice gesture although her English is just fine.

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


I have been living in LA for over twenty plus years now and have always struggled going to the dentist’s office because I could never find one that didn’t terrify me. This made me procrastinate and allow for a lot of my teeth to become sick. I was sent an angel in the form of doctor Rita Metrikin who was not only save a lot of my teeth and done a fantastic job doing so, she has also elevated many of my fears of going to the dentists office. Her care and attention for her patients needs is amazing, treating everyone with the utmost care and gentle approach. Thank you for everything!!!! Your AMAZING!

Steve F. from Montebello, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a Patient of Dr. Rita Metrikin for about, close to a decade now.  The previous Dentist who owned the practice at this location trusted Dr. Metrikin with the their patients (of which I was one of their best patients for over 13 years).  And I will never leave!  Cause Dr. Metrikin really treats every patient individually with great care and flexibility. You will never find what this dentistry offices does.  Where other dentistry offices don’t consider your feelings and concerns.  Believe me you’ll be happy to come see Dr. Rita in Hollywood.  You wouldn’t believe how personable she is (including her staff, who are also warm, thoughtful and very considerate as well.   You would think no one in Hollywood is personable.  But you’ll just never know until you meet Rita.  Your spirit and your smile will be lifted! I live far away and I will go all the way to Hollywood to see her.  It’s worth the trip.  Bon Voyage to those who come!   Thank You Rita for your kindness!

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


I first met Dr. Rita Metrikin when I lost my old crown, and nobody wanted to fix it because I did not have a very good insurance. When I called to the office heard that I was welcome to come anytime, I felt that I found somebody who really cares about patients coming to the office. I was right. All my life I had a dream to have a Hollywood smile, but I got very tired of hearing it was not possible because my teeth were yellow and in very bad condition. Guess, I just have not found a dentist who was right for me. A few years passed by, and I have smile of my dreams without any cosmetic surgeries or veneers. I just found a wonderful dentist who really cares about her patients and makes them feel special by providing the highest professional services possible. When I come to Dr. Metrikin office, I know that I always welcome. It starts from phone call where receptionist always greats you with respect and friendliness, and it continues with professionalism, care, and support of Dr. Metrikin.

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


Dr. Rita has been my dentist for about a year now, and I have to say that I’m really I found her! She is kind, patient and gentle – which goes a long way considering that I am really not very comfortable in a dentist’s chair. She has done a great job every time I’ve visited, ensuring that I had no pain or discomfort during my procedures. The other staff members are very kind and courteous as well. The last time I visited, I was  the last patient of the day, but traffic was holding me up. They were kind enough to stay late for me, finish filling my cavity and make sure that my experience was very positive. I plan on continuing to be a patient here for as long as possible. I would definitely recommend this dental office to my friends and family.

Tim D. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


Picture this: we are supposed to board a cruise ship from LA to Mexico on  Sunday afternoon last May. On Friday, I hit a thick glass balcony door at my friend’s house and broke one of my front teeth. My wife was terrified. I was hopeless. I called Dr. Rita’s office Saturday morning – they are closed. I dialed their emergency phone number, and she picked up the phone. Guess what happens next. She opens the office specially for me, works near an hour on the remains of my tooth. Then she calls some dental lab on Fairfax and tells them she needs a porcelain veneer overnight. They say “no way”. She explains and insists… Long story short – at 2 pm next Sunday I got my veneer installed. Beautiful job, by the way, looks much better than my original tooth :} Call it a miracle or doctor’s willingness to help – I don’t know. One thing I know for sure – what she did was almost impossible. Really great, great dentist and a sweetest person too.

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


I found Dr. Metrikin here on Yelp when I woke up with a swollen cheek and I needed help fast. Prior to her I had a dentist in Tjiuana but I couldn’t wait to drive down there with my swollen cheek. Now I’m staying with Dr. Rita, because not only does she have reasonable prices, and therefor saves me the trip down south but – and that’s just as important – she’s a really, really good dentist! I ended up doing my dental bridge here with her and the bridge looks perfect! The color is so natural, it feels great, and she saved my back tooth from a potential root canal in the process when she discovered that that tooth had a lot of decay due to a badly placed crown, when she prepped my teeth for the new bridge. She’s also a really nice person and everybody who works with her in her practice is super-nice and friendly. I’m so glad that I found her and I highly recommend her to everyone from now on. The practice is not one of these fancy places and neither is the building but make no mistake, this dentist is exceptionally skilled, and that’s all that matters. She is also very gentle and she really cares for your dental health, unlike many others here in L.A. who only care about selling you stuff. The practice is very clean and they also do their best to accommodate your needs with a flexible schedule, when you need them to. I am so happy that I found her.

Ana D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita Metrikin is the best Dentist in LA!!! I have known her for more then 10 years and she is really genuine, honest, caring and extremely knowledgeable. She does absolutely amazing and outstanding job and helped me to have a smile I dreamt about . It is so rare to find a Dentist that you just Love! I am one of those lucky patients!! Dr Metrikin always treats you like you are her only patient the whole time and make you feel so special! I am so exited for my new gorgeous smile !!!! She is simply the Best!!!! Thank you Doctor Rita !!!

Tristyn H. from Orlando, FL (Source: Yelp)


Very friendly receptionist. Very nice experience making my appointment. Upon arrival, I was a little sketched out by the location. Not exactly the nicest part of west Hollywood. But my insurance is accepted her and I just need a cleaning. I enjoy the music they play here. Along with the decor I feel like I’m in the 1950’s. For me, that’s a compliment. I first met with the dr. And she asked if I would like X-rays. It’s been a LONG while since I’ve be en to the dentist. “Does my insurance cover it?” Yes. Light me up! The dental assistant took my X-rays, she was quick and efficient. Found a couple of cavities  insurance fully covers that too?? Excellent! Made an appointment three days later. Cavities fixed and Dr. Rita was very sensitive to my sensitivity. She took the time to make sure I was comfortable and had enough Novocain to sit through the procedure. Sure the place is a little rundown without a lot of the bells and whistles. But the service and accommodating nature of this office will keep me as a loyal dentist goer.

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


Rita is the best dentist in Hollywood. She is very caring about her patients and I have been coming to her for a few years because of it. Always fast, great staff and very knowledgeable. I am very grateful that my experience here is always stress free and Rita does an amazing job keeping me comfortable. Most of all I appreciate Gayana’s help at the front desk who tolerates my incessant rescheduling due to a crazy work schedule.

Michael F. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had one dentist my entire life and I was so nervous to switch to a new dentist after moving to LA.  After one visit to Dr. Metrikin, I would never go back to my old dentist.  I am so happy with every aspect of her practice.  From the time I walk in to the time I leave, I cannot say enough wonderful things about her and her staff!  I would never go anywhere else and if I moved, I would probably fly back just to get my teeth cleaned!  Dr. Rita is the best!

Oganes K. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rita and her staff are the best. She is very caring, attentive and knowledge dentist. I live in Palm Springs, but prefer driving to Hollywood to see Dr. Rita as I did not feel comfortable with a couple of local dentist I’ve tried before. My mother and sister go this office for years and I referred few friends to this office who are now thankful to me. Her hands are so tender, I’ve never really felt any pain. And she is willing to work around my schedule. Thank you Dr. Rita!

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


I have a really REALLY hard time trusting dentists or any kind of doctors for that matter. There never seems to be an in-between when it comes to them. They’re either REALLY REALLY great or REALLY REALLY terrible. Needless to say that I was having trouble with my teeth (they’ve never been that great), but I was avoiding doing anything about it so that I could avoid the pain of drilling and so on and so forth. However, with my upcoming wedding I decided that it would probably be best to go and have myself looked at. My grandmother was referred to Rita by a friend of hers and COULD NOT stop raving about her. I DO trust my grandmother so I decided to give it a shot. I was in love right away! Rita is so sweet and caring and really knows what she’s talking about, not to mention knows what she’s doing! Teeth are very important and the last thing I needed was for some random dentist to ruin my teeth before my wedding. This was NOT the case with Rita. I needed to have A LOT of work on on a few of my front teeth (root canal gone bad from my last dentist. OUCH!). Rita was as kind as could be and recommended getting a bridge. I trusted her judgement and we made an appointment to begin right away because it would be a big job. I was (STILL AM) so impressed by her work! Fast, efficient, and most importantly PAINLESS. She really is a master at what she does, and you can definitely see and FEEL the passion that she has for her job, which for doctors, I deem to be a very important quality if not THE MOST important quality. Rita is worth EVERY SINGLE penny because she gets the job done RIGHT! If you’re looking for an amazing dentist LOOK NO FURTHER! It doesn’t get any better than this! Thank you so so much Rita for EVERYTHING that you have done for me and for my grandmother. We will forever be grateful for you. And THANK YOU to your amazing office staff. Always so sweet and courteous. See you soon!!!!

I’ve been coming to Dr. Rita for over eight years now, and I can safely say this is the best dental office I’ve ever been a regular of in my life. She’s seen me through several root canals, repaired crowns that previous dentists didn’t do a great job on, and even extracted a couple of wisdom teeth (which was wildly entertaining because she had to climb on top of the chair to get enough torque to yank out my cro-magnon chompers). She’s done all of this with a fantastic chairside manner and gentle, precision touch. I feel 100% safe here. I’ve never been in the hands of a dentist whom I felt was more concerned with getting everything done right the first time. And while I miss her old assistant Clara dearly, her replacement is just as easygoing and personable. The elevator music might playing in the background might feel a bit stereotypical and drive some folks stir crazy, but I think it kind of adds to the charm of this efficient all-girl operation. The prices are quite reasonable, and if you have dental insurance they’re a downright bargain. I was also very grateful that Dr. Rita was willing to let me make payments on a couple crowns I needed during a time when finances were uncomfortably tight. But that’s really just a minor part of why I keep coming back. What matters most is that I feel very taken care of when I come here.
