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

I first went to Dr. Sheldon about 20 years ago on a recommendation.  I liked him immediately. I found him to be personably professional, genuinely caring and wanted to fix my teeth and send me on my way. I’ve also learned over the years that he’s a true perfectionist with a patient-first attitude.   I’ve tried other dentists closer to home but they don’t match the quality of work Dr. Sheldon can deliver…everything from cleaning, crowning and yanking!  He’s worth the drive and time for me.  HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMMENDED!!

Dr. Sheldon is an amazing person with a beautiful personality and best job done ever. A friend recommend him to me and my family become his patients since then. He is doing a beautiful job and he is always on time and doing the job done. I had my front teeth implant done in his office. He did a wonderful job and nobody knows they are implant. He has a very friendly office staff and overall they all are very professional and nice. I definitely recommend him and his office to all my friend and family.

Dr. Shelden is the absolute best dentist. My family has been going to him for 10 yrs. He is a perfectionist which is very important to me. His novocaine injections are amazing they never hurt!!!! We  Dr. S…he evn lets us play dentist Lol

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


Dr Shelden is impeccable. I don’t need to say much more than that. He is friendly and exceptionally knowledgeable in his craft. Very accommodating to my schedule and just needs as a client. The staff was equally as impressive. I’ve never felt quite as comfortable in a dentists office before. All of the service aside, his work speaks volumes. He meticulously turned what was a train wreck in my mouth into something that makes me happy to smile again. Eager to return to continue the magic. Thanks again Dr Shelden and to the girls!

If your dentist happens to be Dr. Ross Shelden, your teeth are in excellent hands. I first met Dr. Shelden when his office was located in Studio City (that’s over 20 years ago). I now live in Santa Clarita and would gladly travel much farther to get his exemplary care. Whatever you need to have done, whitening, bleaching, veneers, fillings, crowns — you know without any doubt whatsoever, that he will provide the best, expert skills in the business. To top it all off, he is patient, honest, respectful, genuinely interested in people and their concerns. He is never patronizing, a quality that is such a relief to experience with someone on whom you depend. Always looking for the way to save the tooth whenever the situation presses for the decision, you can rest with the peace of mind that the options that he presents are for your benefit and satisfaction. After all these years of his help with my now pearly whites, I have decided that it’s about time that I applaud and recognize this expert professional and marvel at my luck at having found him so early in my tooth-care journey. I really should have written this a long time ago. It’s about time. Sincerely, Kathryn Teena Manticos-Spizzirri

Dr. Shelden & his staff are the absolute best!  I make the drive from the westside and it’s well worth it.  I’ve never looked forward to coming to a dentist until I found this office through a friend’s referral.  Dr. Shelden takes time explaining what’s going on and is very thorough.  He genuinely cares.  His Dental Hygienist is very gentle and does a complete cleaning without pain.  Sandra up front is very kind and always answers emails and calls in a timely manner.  They all make you feel welcome and comfortable every time.  Parking is as easy as it gets, or there are plenty of meters around.

Daniel S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ross Sheldon 5 stars, 100% recommended as a professional, honest, friendly dentist and all around great experience. This is the guy you want to get the job done correctly the first time. Not all dentists are good & difficult to find a great dentist around town-this guy is great and has awesome recommendations for any kind of dental work necessary. Great experience and very happy with Dr. Sheldon and his crew.

Dee N. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shelden is THE BEST  I didn’t have a regular dentist anymore.  I was referred to him by a friend.  I cracked my wisdom tooth.  It HURT…BAD.  His office got me in right away.  Basically no wait in his waiting room.  He saw the exact issue immediately. We decided to pull it out.  I was a bit worried…but let me say I felt NO PAIN or discomfort whatsoever ! The actual extraction took 1-2 minutes.  It was so fast.  I’m referring him to ALL my family and friends…and now I have a wonderful new dentist that I will go to regularly without my childhood dentist fears. Thanks Dr. Shelden…See you soon for a cleaning !

Eileen R. from Valley Village, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheldon is an excellent doctor. What I love the most is that he does not push you to have work done. He and the entire staff are wonderfully warm and caring. In fact, I had a bad slip and fall, and my face slammed into a wall.  I was taken to the hospital by ambulance and was released five hours later. I was very concerned about my teeth because they hurt and I had a big gash in my mouth. So as soon as I walked out the hospital door I called Dr Sheldon and asked if could fit me in. He said Come in immediately!  I’ve never heard that from a dentist’s office; usually you have to get an appointment. So, thank you Dr. Sheldon!

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


I can honestly and enthusiastically say that I’ve never had a dentist quite like Dr. Sheldon. I first began visiting his office as a child, and twenty years later, he’s earned my loyalty as a patient. He’s incredibly charismatic and puts you at ease, and is quick and efficient in his treatments. His charisma, to be honest, that’s probably one of the best assets as a dentist. He knows what he’s doing, he knows that you probably want to get out of there as soon as possible. So he’s quick, he’s efficient, and oh look he just cracked a joke so hey you just forgot he’s about to drill a hole in your tooth. I’ve been to several other offices out of necessity, and honestly, never again. I’ve had basic cleaning and dental work botched to the point that I couldn’t open my mouth without being in intense pain for weeks, and for the two decades I’ve been visiting Dr. Sheldon, this has never happened to me, even in more rigorous procedures. I’m in the process of having two wisdom teeth being pulled out (one after the other. It’s fun.) And I wouldn’t ever, ever trust my care to anyone but him. So, if you’re looking for a dentist who can make you feel comfortable, is speedy, and is trustworthy, I would say to look no further. You’ll always feel welcome in his office, and the drill is just a bit less scary in his hands.

Dr. Sheldon has been our dentist for close to 30 years and I would never switch! His work is impeccable for both dental health and anything cosmetic -both of which I have needed in the past. He really gets to know his patients and keeps a close watch on your needs. Several years ago I broke the front of a tooth and, in a panic called him. He stayed well past his Saturday office hours in order to beautifully repair my tooth. This is a friendly, easy going office headed by a dentist who obviously takes great pride in doing beautiful work.   .

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


Dr. Sheldon was recommended to me by a coworker to fix a broken tooth. I got a quote from another dentist who wanted to do a crowning for $1,300 but Dr. Sheldon was able to fix my tooth for $399 with a much less invasive procedure to repair by tooth. Everyone who works there was very nice and I was never in any pain. He is a very honest man and I will definitely be back!

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


We have our choice of any dentist in the Los Angeles area, but we have selected and remained with Ross Shelden because of his high standards as a dentist and the way he maintains his office.  His staff is very professional, friendly, and helpful.  He has guided and helped me maintain my teeth in top condition.  He also has a friendly personality.  He has the latest equipment, and I have had little or no wait time for my appointment.

Nancy R. from Encino, CA (Source: Yelp)


When my husband & I moved to Encino 11 years ago, we tried several different dentists in the area and were so disappointed in the lack of caring and poor dentistry. We were referred to Dr. Sheldon and wow! He’s the best dentist ever! And his staff is awesome! I can’t say enough about their compassion and the genius work that Dr. Sheldon has done on both of us. And he validates parking! Look no further if you are a scaredy-cat (like me) when it comes to dentistry…best experiences ever in the last 10 years!

Jessica M. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fortunately I was referred to Dr shelden by a friend for a consultation  on my front teeth and a broken crown. I wanted porcelain veneers because the bonding was old, Well not only did Dr shelden do a BEAUTIFUL job on my front teeth he also replaced some old leaking silver fillings with white fillings, His staff is AMAZING!! And the cleaning is the BEST I have ever had. I was surprised the cleaning with the hygienist was a whole hour!! Thank you Dr shelden and’ your wonderful staff  I can’t wait to go back for my teeth whitening!!

Farah K. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheldon is an amazing person with a beautiful personality and best job done ever.  A friend recommend him to me and my family become his patients since then.  He is doing a beautiful job and he is always on time and doing the job done.  I had my front teeth  implant done in his office.  He did a wonderful job and nobody knows they are implant.  He has a very friendly office staff and overall they all are very professional and nice.  I definitely recommend him and his office to all my friend and family.

Stephanie G. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shelden is GREAT at what he does. I’ve been seeing him for years and he does quality work. He is worth every penny. You expect to get what you pay for and unfortunately you don’t but  with Dr. Shelden you get it all, undivided attention, great service, quality work, I can go on and on. I recommend him to all my family and friends. So go see Dr. Shelden, believe me you won’t regret it!!

Peter Lee (Source: Google)


I’ve been going Dr. Sheldon for about twenty years. I moved to Santa Clarita, tried a couple local dentists. And after a couple of ho-hum experiences I made the commitment to return to Sheldon despite traffic and distance. If oral hygiene and dental health is important, he’s worth it. Healthy teeth, happy life! He’s given me solid advice/answers that explains exactly what’s going on in my mouth. Truly a ‘patient first’ doctor and does work based on healing and curing..everything else becomes secondary. His integrity, honesty, genuine friendliness makes him my dentist forever!

Karen R. from Chatsworth, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Shelden need SIX stars!  When the bonding fell off my chipped front teeth for the 4th time, my usual dentist referred me to a specialist for a veneer.  Luckily a good friend told me Dr Shelden did bonding on her teeth 20 years ago that is still there.  He squeezed me in the next business day and did the MOST kickass job!  It feels like nothing ever happened to my teeth in the first place and looked better than ever.  I’m SO happy!  It was painless and quick.  He completely RULES!  THANKS DR. SHELDEN!!!

Josh F. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheldon has been working with my family for many years, but has not been my only dentist. That being said, he is by far the most professional and talented dentist that I have experienced so far! He also takes an interest in his patients beyond just being a dentist. He is a higher- standard of dentist but can also be a friend and give good advice! If you live in the area and need a better dentist or a dentist in general, look no further.

He’s been keeping my smile healthy for 19 years. Nicest person too. The office is well run and always friendly. Beautiful cosmetic dentistry that is actually affordable.

Shelby Eisenberg (Source: Google)


My sister and I have been coming to Dr. Shelden’s office for years. Personally, I am not a fan of the Dentist ( as many people aren’t ), but Dr. Shelden and his team make me feel comfortable. I am very timely on my check ups (hypochondriac), so I am always getting my teeth cleaned and getting my yearly exams. I have never had to get a serious procedure like a Root Canal or anything crazy done, THANK GOD! I do come to Dr. Shelden for my teeth whitening though. I like to have a bright smile, and he does a great job. I wouldn’t go to any other cosmetic dentist in the area for these services. If you are in the los angeles or encino area, I highly suggest scheduling an appointment with Dr. Shelden and his team of experts for the best dental experience!

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


I moved to the area from out of state and have had difficulty finding a solid dentist until I met Dr Shelden and his team.  I’m pretty woozy when it comes to medical work, but I’m very impressed with this office.  Dr. Shelden is very personable and makes me feel comfortable in his chair.  He explains what is going on and what steps need to be done.  I’m excited I found him!

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


Dr. Sheldon, his staff and dental practice should serve as a model for dentistry, period! As a recent senior citizen arrival in California I required emergency treatment. In severe pain and panic mode I had never felt so lost. Enter Dr. Sheldon whom I found on Yelp. I guarantee his 5-star reviews are genuine. Thank you, Dr. Sheldon.

Warren C. from Reseda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Sheldon’s office for years. He is by far the BEST DENTIST EVER!  I am a complete dental wimp. His Hygienist pampers me and very patiently & politely puts up with my making her job much harder. On two occasions Dr. Sheldon rebuilt my broken molars like an artist. There was no pain. He’s sincerely very conscientious and caring and most important honest! Most dentists would have sold me a crown which I did not need because the teeth were healthy. Friendly staff too. He’s even reasonably priced. Look no further for a Dentist!!

Mauricio G. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Having lived in a number of different places in this great country of ours, I can definitely say that Ross Shelden DDS does exceptional work; but in an ironic twist, it was another dentist who probably gave him the best compliment.   I was in L.A., for work when a filling fell out and I found the good doctor by sheer happenstance.  He did such a good job that my regular dentist could not find the original cavity months later.  My  dentist expressed his admiration at the quality of work, saying that it was some of the best work he had ever seen. After moving down to Los Angeles on a more permanent basis, I of course have entrusted the care of my pearly whites for the last 15 years to Ross and have never regretted it!  My entire family now enjoys the first class and homey service his entire staff gives you on every visit. As far as I’m concerned I would gladly give him more than 5 stars If I could!

Steven G. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shelden has been my dentist for over 30 years. Always a great experience. He gets the job done and keeps my teeth healthy. You never feel like you will be sold needless procedures.He take pride in his work and it shows. Gentle and comfortable always. His staff is wonderful. Mo, the hygienist on staff gives the best cleanings ever!  It’s always great to hear Sondra’s voice on the phone. She does magic with the scheduling. She knows when I’m due for a checkup and works with my busy schedule. Never sat a waited as my appointment times are always honored. Love that! Everyone in the office gets along like a family and you can really feel that nice energy.

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


I found Dr. Shelden a year and a half ago, by reading his reviews myself. They were and are all five stars. Here is why – His office, the equipment, the wonderful ladies who work with him, and most of all – the quality of his work. All are amazing. He literally, is a real artist, and what to me seems so rare, he genuinely cares as much as an artist does – about his work. About the quality of his work. About doing it the best it can be done. It’s an odd thing to find that in a dentist, I had never seen it before. And he’s for real. Caring and masterful.

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


Update to my review. As previously stated I was recommended to Dr. Sheldon and I’m so happy about it. He’s ethical and fair and in my opinion, a perfectionist. His appointments start on time, no waiting around because he’s trying to work on multiple patients. The staff are informative and kind. After completing some deep cleaning and a crown Dr. Sheldon did some cosmetic work repairing an old chipped tooth and filling in a gap in my two front teeth. I had another dentist tell me the only fix was very expensive veneers. Dr. Sheldon said he could do the job for a fraction of the price and using the less evasive filler.  I couldn’t be more happy with the work, he’s an artist.

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


Dr. Sheldon is seriously the best! He is a true artist. I came from dentists in Santa Monica and Beverly Hills who were wanting to charge hundreds of dollars for unnecessary treatment. After being referred by a friend, I have been extremely happy with Dr. Sheldon. He has fixed two of my chipped teeth and has done an incredible job! You cannot even tell I had chipped teeth to begin with!!! He is extremely kind, intelligent and an artist when it comes to fixing teeth. I look forward to having him as my dentist forever and am so happy that my friend recommended him!!

Justin G. from Studio City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Been looking for a new dentist and after a few bad attempts I finally found a good one. A friend referred me and I couldn’t of been happier. He has all the new Technology. I was able to take a picture and show me the problem and also let me see what he was doing with more pictures when I asked. He is staff was great. And the seat was quite nice…. I know I sat in it for a few hours. He was even able to give me a shot without me flipping a table. He did great work on my two teeth.

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


I have been going to Dr. Shelden for about 8 years and he is such a talented dentist! He has fixed work that my previous dentist did a horrible job on and my teeth have been great ever since. He has given me a beautiful new smile with my Porcelain Veneers and I love it!! Over the years my entire family has switched from their dentist to Dr. Shelden and been extremely happy with his work. I highly recommend Dr. Shelden, he is the best when it comes to teeth and he is kind of funny too!

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


Dr Sheldon is the best! He saw me on an emergency appointment after I had a midnight trip on the staircase and busted out my front tooth. He and all of his staff our so kind and comforting, especially when I was in an extreme amount of pain. He has worked his magic and my tooth is perfect again! I couldn’t ask for a better dentist! I highly recommend him!

Greg B. from Agoura Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Shelden is a savior and does excellent work.  My daughter recently had a bike accident and broke half her front tooth off on a Sunday afternoon.  Dr. Shelden came to the rescue that Sunday afternoon and did his magic.  It’s like the accident never happened!  Ross has been our family dentist for over 20 years and has always been there when we needed him.  Our experience is that he really cares and loves his practice and his patients, so we say…Nobody does it better!

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


Dr Sheldon is the best doctor in the world!!! I don’t even go to a medical doctor regularly because I would rather come get my teeth cleaned regularly every 4 to 6 months!!! He is professional,he is the coolest if you want to have the best white teeth ever come visit Dr. Sheldon just check out mine which are all natural!!!! He is simply the best and beat out all the rest!
