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

Kris K. from South Redondo, Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arbab is the only reason why I go to the dentist at all!! The staff makes it so easy and convenient to make appointments and are so nice and friendly too! I get reminders for appointments and can text in to schedule making it simple. I have had multiple procedures done and all were done so smooth and I have no complaints with pain or anything! I’m grateful that I can take care of my teeth young thanks to Dr Arbab and unbelievably helpful staff! I highly recommend this for all people but defiantly for men hesitant on the dentist! The only dentist I will go to and I have been to a few in the South Bay.. wish I could give more stars they deserve the recognition!

At a routine cleaning, hygienist Shawna and Dr Arbab quickly diagnosed a cavity, scheduled a convenient follow-up appointment, performed the work comfortably with local anesthetic, and have had no issues since. Friendly and helpful office with such a caring and professional expertise is why I have been a patient for many, many years.

I have the upmost respect for Dr Arbab and her staff. There’s no one better in the business. Dr Arbab is so incredibly knowledgeable and talented. Her, confidence makes you feel at ease the minute she walks into the room and greets you. (Same goes for the front office!) Moving to the S. Bay in 2004, I just happen to have one of her staff as a neighbor. My new neighbor said “Hey, if you ever need a dentist, let me know”. So I did. I have been seeing them for 13 years now and have recently moved to Encintas, CA (100 miles away), but still insist on seeing Dr. Arbab for all dental maintenance and care. I am very lucky to have met the Doctor and to be a patient of Roya Arbab DDS. She has made such a difference in my life. I can’t even put it into words. Thanks for everything, all of you!

My husband and I have been patients in this office for 30 plus years.  then we were so grateful to have Dr. Arbab take his practice.  We now reside in Georgia but return to Hermosa Beach to have Dr. Arbab and her staff meet all our dental needs.  South Bay residents are very fortunate to have such quality dentistry available.

I can’t say enough good things about the staff at the desk and my hygienist, as well as Dr. Arbab. I’ve been going to this location for years and highly recommend them. Their professionalism, ethics and knowledge are 5 star.

I enjoy my visits with Dr. Arbab and her staff! It is like one big happy family. They are all very professional and are experienced. They are willing to work with you and your insurance. The office is conveniently located and easy to get to. Thanks all!

Jane H. from Rancho Palos Verdes, CA (Source: Yelp)


Who likes going to the dentist? I do…Dr Arbab changed my life, seriously. I have worried about my teeth all my life. I have  a hybrid implant bridge in both the bottom and the tops of my teeth. They say the window to your soul is your eyes, I think the window to you heart is through your smile…. Thank you Dr. Arbab and all the wonderful staff

Merle Ann F. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr Arbab is the best dentist.  I was her patient at USC when she was getting her degree for being a prosthodontist. I got dental implants.  I went every 2 weeks for two years.  After she graduated I followed her everywhere that she had an office, from San Diego to Santa Barbara and now to Hermosa Beach.  I live in Las Vegas now and drive all the way to Hermosa Beach because I don’t trust any other dentist with my implants. She is a perfectionist.  Thank goodness she is 25 years younger than me, because I know I’ll be gone before her.

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


Can’t list enough superlatives about Dr. Abab & her staff. As luck would have it, I had 2 dental emergencies over the past week. Dr. Arbab responded immediately to my calls & texts, even over the weekend, and fit me in first thing this morning. Dr. Arbab is experienced, professional, patient & a superb listener. Dr. Arbab honestly has the patient’s best interests at heart and is not driven by just the almighty dollar. Additionally, her staff is experienced, flexible and very professional. This is one of the best office staffs that I have ever dealt with. They bend over backwards to accommodate their patients. Bottom line, I count my luck starts that I have Dr. Arbab & her staff in my corner ! I travel all the way from the middle of LA to continue to see Dr. Arbab because the service that her & her staff provide is well worth going out of my way. Thank you Dr. Arbab, Cherie, Erica and all of the staff there. I love all of you. David

James V. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arbab is a very compassionate dentist with a very gentle touch. I have always felt very comfortable with her. Never one bit of pain. All the dental hygienists are extremely gentle and thorough. Everyone in the office is so friendly and efficient. Dr. Arbab and the hygienists are always on time. I won’t ever leave.

Rob D. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I switched over to Dr. Arbab from another local Dentist in Manhattan Beach. Dr. Arbab and her staff are professional, always on time, and very organized. I changed dentists because I felt the other dentist was gouging me on unnecessary work done on my teeth. Dr. Arbab focuses on prevention, and cares about her patient’s health. Highly highly recommend!

Hallie K. from Pacific Palisades, CA (Source: Yelp)


I like this office because it is warm and professional  and Dr Arbab is an excellent dentist with lots of experience.  Dr Arbab is also extremely kind to her patients.  I have been going to her for years and I like her so much I drive 25 miles to get my teeth cleaned and see Dr Arbab for checkups and teeth fillings. I get a lot of compliments on my teeth and I give Dr Arbab all the credit:  she showed me how to whiten safely and easily at home, she filled my cavities with no pain and she solved the bad bacteria in my mouth which was causing decay.  When I needed to get my receding gums fixed, she recommended an excellent doctor.   Dr Arbab makes the best, most realistic crowns I have seen so definitely go to her for cosmetic dentistry.  I have seen her work and she is fantastic!  She went to USC and that is one of the best dental schools.

Tana H. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Arbab has been taking care of me and my family for years.  This is the best dental practice in the South Bay.  She is extremely knowledgeable and caring. My daughter had serious dental issues and Dr Arbab not only handled it but made my daughter feel extremely comfortable.  She hires the best and most talented staff. The dental hygienists do a great job of cleaning your teeth.  Her office staff are wonderful to work with and they always greet you with a smile – for good reason too!  They all work in a fantastic office!  You will not go wrong with this dentist.  She is wonderful and I always look forward to going.

Caroline F. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Roya Arbab and her staff are hands down the best dental group in Southern California.  Who doesn’t like looking out at the ocean when they are getting a filling? 🙂 They have the most up to date equipment and such a clean, comfortable, and inviting facility.  Their receptionists are so wonderful and friendly. I’ve always struggled with my teeth and gums.  Since seeing Dr. Arbab for the past few months, I have noticed a significant difference in both for the better.  My gums no longer bleed when I brush or floss!  I drive 35 minutes each way for every appointment.  I hate driving more than 10 minutes to go anywhere, so that is saying something.  It is worth every minute.   It is hard to find good dental care these days at an affordable rate.  Trust me, look no further.  Dr. Arbab and her hygienists have changed my life. Thank you so much.  You have a client for life. 🙂

Chris A. from Nashville, TN (Source: Yelp)


Good group of people here, they really seem to care about your Health and your teeth.  They also have some great views out of the windows!  While I have since moved out of the area, I’d go back to them, and will look for a place like theirs out here.

Joe H. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I, my wife, and my two adult daughters have been going to Dr. Arbab since she took over Dr. Knott’s practice some years ago. We have been very pleased with the service all around. Yes, as someone mentioned, the prices are a bit stiff, but given (a) the litigious nature of our society, (b) the sense of entitlement to super-human healthcare that all of us seem increasingly to feel, and (c) the cost of running a facility like a dental office, I am rather amazed that we have not all been priced out of the market for dental care. For the service she provides, Dr. A. is  probably no more expensive than the rest, and with her overhead, I doubt she is getting rich off of us.

Dr Arbab is an outstanding dentist with a calm demeanour and patience, who explains the diagnosis and treatment options and is willing to address all your questions and concerns . She has performed everything from a minor filling to complete mouth reconstruction for me. I believe that before and after pictures may be available at her office. I would strongly recommend Dr Arbab and her supporting professionals including front office personnel. I moved to Georgia but fly back for my dental care.

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


Always patient, always kind and gentle!  I am super nervous about my teeth and any dental work that has to be done due to bad childhood dental care.  Dr. Arbab is wonderful and she always wants to make sure you are comfortable and at ease under her care.  She asks you questions to understand the problem and is very thorough in her diagnosis.  She also explains what is the issue, how she will fix it, and asks for your descriptions for the most accurate assessment of the problem.  I recently had a crown installed and she was beyond patient with correcting the bite and adjusted the tooth to make sure I felt normal after my dental work.  I am the worst at Xrays but the staff knows that and they know how to adjust their methods to work with me.  I feel that they really understand each patient needs.  I’ve been a patient of Dr. Collis and after he retired I stayed with Roya’s office.  The transition was smooth and the office staff is professional, courteous, and organized.  I would highly recommend Dr. Arbab’s if you are looking for a good dentist in the Southbay area.

Brian B. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Since The first visit, I have been treated like family.  The front office and the back office work in unison the entire time from the minute you walk in until the good bye at the end.  Dr. Arbab is not only the best Dr/Dentist in the South Bay.  She is the best Dentist I have been to in my 52 years.  Don’t what I’d do with out them?  Great Team!  Extremely knowledgeable, considerate, and Professional.

Patricia Taylor (Source: Facebook)


Very fortunate to have such a great DDS. We travel from Georgia to Hermosa Beach to have her care for our teeth. Worth all time and travel. Her dentistry is superior to all others in the South Bay. Dr. Arbab and her staff provide an outstanding service.

Nicole B. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Arbab for years and am very happy there! Everyone that works there is so friendly and warm, wonderful environment. AND I always feel I am receiving the best care you can find! If someone asks for a dentist Recommendation i don’t hesitate to send them to Dr. Arbab.

Jeff Towns (Source: Google)


I have been coming to this office since she started here. She is an outstanding dentist. The staff in the office and at the front desk are professional and the best as well. Everyone is top flight and first class. I highly recommend this office without question.

Lisa N. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience has been excellent with Dr. Arbab’s office.  The care is of the highest quality as she and her team are open to answering all of my questions thoroughly.  She gladly gives the time it takes to be sure patients are tended to compassionately and fully informed without pressure to make a decision on the spot for treatment.

Luis A. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is not just the best dental office in the South Bay, Dr. Arbab is the best dentist I’ve ever seen in my life. She and her team have an incredible bedside (chairside?) manner, and are incredibly warm and inviting. Dr. Arbab is not only insanely knowledgeable but explains the results of her exam, imaging, and overall findings in easy to understand terms that my wife and I could understand and relate to. She has a state of the art camera that shows me exactly what the problems are, and how she’s going to go about fixing them. She numbs me really well, and takes great care to ensure my comfort throughout my appointments. I’ve sent a handful of friends to her office, and everyone is equally thrilled. Her prices are very fair, there’s ample parking in front, and her staff is genuine, accommodating, warm, and on the ball. I couldn’t recommend Dr. Arbab’s office any more to the Yelp community, and truly wish I could give 10 stars… to a dentist, of all reviews! P.S. Not that you should ever go to the dentist for the scenery, but the views from the chairs onto the Pacific are unreal. Consider it an added bonus to your visit.

Fonda R. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Roya Arbab for well over 10 years now, she is professional and very good at what she does. All of the staff in the office are pleasant and professional.  I get compliments all the time on my teeth – can’t give a better review than that.    I recommend Arbab to anyone who is looking for a new Dentist or anyone who needs corrections made my poor dental work in the past.

Jane S. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been seeing Dr. Arbab and her hygienists for several years.  Dr. Arbab helped me with a dental emergency initially and her care was so professional and thorough.  Last year I completed Invisalign through her office and I am so happy with the results.  Amelia is a kind and thorough hygienist and the office staff Sherri and Erica are friendly and professional.  I highly recommend Dr. Arbab!

Christopher C. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient here for about 20 years. I recently had to have a molar replaced and decided to have the implant done after waiting quite some time. Dr. Arbab and her team took care of the crown and did an amazing job. I was nervous about how the results would look and to my surprise, I can’t see the difference at all in the crown and my other teeth. From the sizing to the care they took in assuring my bite was right and accurate, it was handled with care and concern. Thank you to you Dr. Arbab and your staff for always making my smile as important to you as it is to me. See you in 4 months! If you are looking for an office that gets it, will handle your emergency requests, change your schedule to accommodate long drives, and will take care of your dental needs, go see this office. Always nice from the front desk ladies to the hygienists and X-ray/whitening crew. Can’t recommend them enough.

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


I’m not a fan of going to a dentist, but I had a problem that I needed to be seen for ASAP. I have a PPO insurance plan, so I could see Dr. Arbab despite her office being outside of my network. Her and her staff have created by far the kindest and most caring/comfortable dental experience I have had. While I did have to pay up front for services, I felt the amount I was charged was fair and more than worth the personal attention I received by Dr. Arbab and her staff. Regarding the negative reviews, I experienced none of these problems, but I consistently made it a point to understand what procedures were being considered for my treatment and to double-check with the office staff regarding what I would be charged. I will definitely be coming here for my routine cleanings and future dental needs.

Anne F. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Dr Arbab is the best dentist ever.  I have been going to her since she was in school at USC. I was her patient there for 2 years.   I’ve followed her to every city she has had a practice.  I have lived in Las Vegas since 2002 and am still going to her.  I have invisalign now so have to see her even more often, plus some extensive dental work.  I’m in my 70’s and am still doing the drive to her. She is very patient and understanding.  Her work is perfect.  My hygenist in Las Vegas thinks Dr. Arbab does great work.  As for the prices she charges, don’t forget she is a specialist not a general dentist.

Dana S. from Fort Worth, TX (Source: Yelp)


I cannot say enough good things about this place. I am very scared of the dentist and as soon as I walked in the front staff was nice and made me feel at ease. They were also very careful to make sure I was parked in the right place so I did not get a parking ticket which was very considerate. The hygienist that cleaned my teeth was very nice and always made sure to ask how I was doing and if I was comfortable. She also gave me new tips to help improved my flossing that I have never heard before, and was kind the entire time. Upon taking x-rays  the Doctor informed me I had a small cavity that needed to be filled. Due to my busy schedule and leaving for college she squeezed me in and got it done right then, and made me feel comfortable as I was extremely nervous. Amazing place, friendly staff, GREAT doctor!!

Dr. Arbab is a knowledgeable, caring, talented DDS – and in addition is an artist in this profession. Her communication with patients is without equal and makes me relaxed, comfortable and understanding of the procedure…..VERY important for a dental patient! Painless and best of all….makes teeth beautiful. She has a team of experts serving patients with her and they all know just what to do to make “going to the dentist” a pleasure rather than a scary event. Great front office, A+++ hygienists and dental techs. How lucky I am to have her as my DDS….and it is worth the long drive to see her.


Dr. Arbab earned her Bachelor’s degree in Biology from UCLA in 1985. She obtained her Doctorate of Dental Surgery from USC (now Herman Ostrow School of Dentistry of USC) in 1989. She then acquired a post Doctorate Certificate in Prosthodontics from USC in 1991. Dr. Arbab was an associate clinical professor at USC School of Dentistry for over 7 years. She transitioned to private practice in 1996. She maintained a full time private practice in Santa Barbara, California until 2002, at which time she moved to Manhattan Beach, California in order to spend more time with her family. She started her practice in Hermosa Beach in 2005 and has been in the same location for the last ten years. In her current practice, she cares for her general patients as well as patients referred for specific prosthodontic care. As a Prosthodontist, Dr. Arbab specializes in the replacement of missing tooth structures with veneers, crowns, implants and dental prostheses. In fact, prosthodontists are the original “cosmetic dentists” since they wed esthetics with dental function. Dr. Arbab is committed to providing her patients with excellent and comprehensive dental care and dentist check ups in an environment that is extraordinarily caring and highly personalized. Her compassionate care is driven by her desire to optimize her patients’ functional and aesthetic dental outcome. She utilizes the latest technology in conjuncture with her extensive clinical experience to address each patient’s individual needs and interests. Dr. Arbab is a member of the following dental societies: American College of Prosthodontics, Academy of Osseointegration (dental implants), American Dental Association, California Dental Association, Western Los Angeles Dental Association and Newport Harbor Academy of Dentistry. She is also the director of two local dental study clubs. Dr. Arbab has been married to her husband for 18 years. He is an Emergency Department physician at Providence Little Company of Mary Medical Center in Torrance. They and their son lead an active life of exercise, cooking, skiing and traveling.
