This is a fantastic dental office and staff. The staff is friendly and warm. If you are afraid of going to the dentist this is the place to go to. The Office Manager Deborah Shaaban was wonderful and took care of all of my papework and was warm and had a wonderful professional attitude. Hector took all of the digital pictures of my teeth and did a wonderful job of it Dr. Ruiz came in and met with me and I felt at ease right away because he is so calm and his presence was reassuring to me that my teeth will be taken care of. I look forward to my teeth cleaning with JoAnne and working with this dental office to get my teeth in tip top shape. Sincerely, Kathleen Somers

On my recent check up to the dentist, I walked in to the office and was immediately greeted by the friendly staff at he front desk. I got checked in fairly quickly and waited under 5 minutes before being walked in to my room. Debbie was friendly and did an amazing job showing me around the office, showing me the advanced technology they use and introducing me to her fellow staff. She took me to my room and made sure I was comfortable before the next person came to see me. My hygienist Connie introduced herself before she started my cleaning, she was very sweet and made sure I felt no discomfort whatsoever during the cleaning process. She took her time and everything went well. Aside from my cleaning I needed a little work done, and that’s where Dr. Ruiz, came in while I was with the hygienist to check on me. He took the time to ask if I felt any discomfort in my mouth. (which I literally felt nothing-this was a pain free process- thank you). Together they worked cohesively in making sure my teeth came out great. Once they were all done they made sure I was well and I went on my way with no discomfort at all. My overall experience with this dental office hands down was amazing. Thank you to everyone that made this happen. See you all next visit!

Great office with the friendliest staff. I have major anxiety about going to he dentist, but was immediately put at ease upon arrival. Everyone was so kind, reassuring and thorough in explaining everything to me from treatment plan to exactly how much things would cost according to my insurance plan. Thankful to have found this office!

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


It is strange to write a rave review for something as generally horrid as visiting the dentist, but I simply have to. The staff and dentists at this office are incredible. From check-in with Debbie to their top of the line technology in the hands of Hector and Dr. K… Tens across the board. They can handle any dental issue with a friendly, helpful, and professional attitude. Come in and have your mental perception changed too.

I’m sure I’m not the only one who doesn’t get excited at the thought of a dentist appointment but this location really turned that around. From the off Debbie was extremely friendly and showed me the great facilities. My first appointment was a robust assessment and treatment plan that i have been following to get my teeth where they need to be. Every staff member and dentist i have interacted with has been extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and takes the anxiety out of dentist visits. I would highly recommend to anyone who is searching for a new dentist after taking a break from visits for a while just like myself. No judgement and excellent treatment options.

The entire staff is SO welcoming and friendly. I left the office feeling energized and happy because of the spirit of the staff. Everyone is incredibly knowledgeable and supportive. They do absolutely astounding work and I have all of the confidence in the world in their abilities. My teeth have never felt cleaner, my mouth has never been healthier, and I’ve never looked forward to going to the dentist more.

Dr. Ruiz and his staff offer the most extraordinary and professional service! I’ve been coming to this office for nearly 20 years. Dr. Ruiz retransformed my smile with his masterful job and instilled a great self esteem. This has helped me tremendously in my profesional and personal life! By feeling good about myself I can help instill confidence in others. Even tough I now live in the East Coast, I still make it a point to have my annual appointment at Dr. Ruiz’s office, because of their impeccable care and top all around care of his staff. I strongly recommend this dental practice to anyone!

This dental office is like no other! Every staff is helpful and very nice and warm. Doctor is great, he makes you feel at home and is perfectionist to your advantage. They make sure you’re feeling ok and you are getting way more than what you pay. Daisy is also very nice and just as meticulous as the Dr. Ruiz. Office staff are very helpful and informative. I recommend them with no hesitation at all! Two thumbs up.

JaynDebbie S. from Palmdale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been looking for a new dentist for quite some time until I was referred by a friend to Dr. Ruiz and his Associates. I truly had the most positive dental experience. Very nice office,high tech and most of all clean! The service was exceptional and the staff was very knowledgeable….. Debbie and Patty found the best way to maximize my dental insurance and Patty got me right in to see the Hygienist too. Not only does Dr. Ruiz do superior dentistry he explains everything throughly. You leave feeling educated. I will continue to drive from Palmdale to Burbank to be seen by Dr. Ruiz. Best Wishes Jay S.

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


Dr. Ruiz & Associates is the place to go. Deb and all the front office staff are so helpful. I am usually afraid to go to the dentist office. Dr. Farris and everyone that I have met helped me get over that fear. I am going to be a lifetime patient.

Karen Goudeau (Source: Google)


I’ve been a patient with Dr. Ruiz since 2004 and I’m so happy to say that this is my dental home. I have gone to this office for all of my dental needs, from my routine cleanings to my wisdom teeth extractions. Dr. Ruiz has always had an exceptional team that makes sure I am well taken care of! Dr. Hassan, the oral surgeon, recently took care of my wisdom teeth and Dr. Mar helped me get rid of my cavities, and they were so nice. I was so surprised how I felt nothing during both procedures and how they made sure I was comfortable the whole time. I will always trust Dr. Ruiz and his associates with my smile and helping me keep up with my oral health.

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


Like so many other poeple I always nervous going to the dentist, thats not the case with Dr. Ruiz Dental Office. The office is Very welcoming and professional. The ladies at the front desk were very helpful. The dentist was personable and answered all of my questions. Over all a great experience! BONUS points for free wifi in the waiting room

I’m so comfortable going to Dr. Ruiz and associates. The staff there is super nice. They breakdown everything for you in easy to understand terms. Dr. Maar is also super helpful. This is my dentist for me and for my family. Give them a visit and you’ll see why.

Lisa L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


If you are looking for a great dental experience look no further. Dr. Swell and staff will have you smiling again! What are a warm and friendly staff. They are very punctual and professional. Thank you Dr. Ruiz and Associates. Lisa

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


I truly Love this office, friendly and knowledgeable staff. Best experience I’ve ever had in tooth worked done. I wished I’ve heard about Dr. Ruiz before. I was one of those people that would get scared just by hearing the word “DENTIST” from previous dentist offices. But after coming here and getting some cavities filled and tooth pulled, I no longer feel scared but happy and comfortable knowing that I’m going to people I can trust. I love the front staff…5 stars. And love the doctors…5 stars.

Jharod H. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ruiz & Associates are an amazing group of professional people. When you walk in the door you’re greeted by two amazing women Debbie and Marion, the whole team treats one another as family and you become part of that family when you choose to be a patient. They all sincerely have your best interest at heart and I always look forward to any appointment I have with them. I highly recommend coming in for any of your dental needs.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Ruiz for several years now after being referred by a family member. Immediately I was attracted to Dr. Ruiz minimally invasive approach to dentistry. Dr. Ruiz cutting edge techniques together with the highest level of hospitality and professionalism from his staff has kept me loyal to his office. Truly, my only regret is having not come across him earlier.

UPDATED 2/12/2020 – it’s now been 3 weeks since my wisdom teeth extraction, and honestly, the staff were so amazing at taking care of me. Awesome follow up appt the week after, and I’m so grateful for everyone that works there. My mom is going to visit the office too for a cleaning, since she saw how great they were at taking care of me. The staff definitely made the process of visiting the dentist so much easier and calmer! As a person that has anxiety of people touching my teeth and stuff, it was just a really smooth process through and through. Awesome customer service right as I walked in from Debby, such a gem! And to top it all off, Dr. David was really great at helping me and recommending my next steps. Not particularly excited to get my wisdom teeth removed, but with the staff, I know I’ll be in great hands

I highly recommend him and his stuff thumbs up

Joseph G. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was hands down the best experience i have ever had in a dentists office. Every single person was nicer than the last, and I was never left waiting. Everyone took the time to explain to me what they were doing, what was going on in my mouth, what it meant, and what had to be done. The guy who took my xrays was also incredibly patient with me, even though I am terrible when it comes to having that sensor in my mouth. I’m very thankful to have found this place, I’ll never have to look for another dentists office, because I found the one.

If I could give 10 stars, I would! I came to Dr Ruiz and Associates after not taking care of my oral hygiene for many years! I was very anxious but was greeted by the most caring and compassionate team. From the front desk to meeting Dr. Ruiz, every person treated me with dignity and went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and knowledgeable about the work that needed to be done. I have had three appointments so far and my teeth have improved drastically. I also brought my young kids in for their appointments and both kids were cooperative and engaged – which is an achievement for a dental office! If you are looking for quality care and a comfortable, encouraging environment, look no further.

Came here as an emergency patient. Was treated like a king. Was greeted right away. Seated pretty quickly and most importantly was able to come in as an emergency. I highly recommend this office as they truly educated me with what was going on.

First of all let me just say that like many of us I absolutely dread going to the dentist and I am one of those people who have hopped around to many different dentists through out my life just because I’ve never truly been satisfied… until I met Dr Ruiz and his wonderful staff especially Daisy his dental assistant and receptionist Erin. Dr Ruiz is extremely skilled and knowledgable… he is the first dentist to fill my cavity without causing me any pain or discomfort. Not only is he great at what he does, but he’s very professional, courteous and you can tell just by talking to him that he loves what he does and truly cares about his patients. I am in the process of getting Invisalign and I could not be more excited. I know he’ll make my teeth look fabulous!

Emmanuelle Z. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I‘m so happy I found Dr. Ruiz & Associates Dental office! I didn’t like the long waits and the rush I felt when I went to other offices. They use a less invasive technique and guess what?! Not every tooth needs to be a crown! All their staff members are nice and accomodating! I feel like they really care about me as a patient. Thank you! Highly Recommend!!

Michaela R. from La Cañada Flintridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great office! I personally don’t enjoy the dentist much until I came here. All the staff made me feel very comfortable with what needed to be done and the dr was very gentle. Very knowledgeable and friendly all around. Can’t wait for my next check up!

First of all the staff here is the most professional and courteous I have ever experienced in my life. I shall be moving ALL my family members here, including in-laws. I’m personally under the impression that, in this stage of the world, or era; whichever you may call it, people forget how important professionalism and courteousness is. Ruiz and Associates absolutely haven’t. God Bless ’em! Secondly, my mother went in for a partial bridge for her front teeth for aesthetic reasons, until she can get her permanent. They could not be more perfect. I just trust and love this dental office from the beginning, especially Erin, and I feel we are all and will all be going to be in perfect and safe hands. Thank you Ruiz and Associates for doing it RIGHT 🙂

I’ve always only had Dr. Ruiz perform my dental work- he is very personable and I’ve been coming to his Dental center for 10 years. Today I instead had Dr. Marr and his assistant Daisy – they were also excellent. Dr. Marr talked me through every step and kept calming me. The relaxing music playing was a good distraction. Alexis, who performed my X-rays earlier was great in making it as quick as possible – rushing in and out of the room before and after the X-ray was taken. I’m a big fan of Anna – the hygienist- very thorough and caring. The staff are all friendly and happy. It is a pleasure to attend their offices.

Ludwig C. from Agua Dulce, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was very please with their service I always been afraid of the dentist but with this guys were very professional to the point that I book my next appointment Hector was very nice took the time to explain everything to me I am looking forward to my next visit

Art S. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today was the first time I had been to Dr. Luis in his Burbank office for an exam and cleaning. I was very impressed with the staff who were very friendly. Deborah the office manager made me feel comfortable and Mary Ann the Hygienist was great. Dr. Fares who did the exam explained to me what dental work I needed done . I, being a dental technician for over 40 years and retired now, appreciate this group for being honest, caring and upfront about cost. I am giving them 5 stars for they have earned my trust! Thank you Team Ruiz at the Burbank office. Art S.

I had my veneers done by Dr Ruiz. They looked very good and felt very comfortable but some how one of the veneer chipped and my tooth looked less than perfect. Dr Ruiz took care of the problem and instead of only one tooth he wanted to replace both veneers so they would look even and perfect. I really appreciate that Dr Ruiz wanted to make sure that his customer is completely satisfied. I highly recommend Dr Ruiz to anyone who is looking for a good dentist.

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


I was initially very Sorry to find out that my regular hygienst, Ana, no longer works here or Dr Mar. However, the service I received from Azi and Dr fares was excellent. Azi is a very capable, gentle and caring hygienst and dr fares was kind enough to completely go over my previous dental records, taking all the time needed to answer all of my concerns. I will continue being a patient of this office for the forseeable future. -Rayner M. Burbank
