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

A. H. from Malvern, PA (Source: Yelp)


What a great experience! Anyone who is looking for a great dentist you have come to the right place. The office is super nice, up to date and clean. The dental staff – Hugo-  was beyond nice and walked me through the whole process. They took x-rays and photos of my teeth.  Dr Ahdoot came and checked out my mouth and was very nice and informative about what I needed done. He even cleaned my teeth. After leaving my teeth never felt to clean and shiny. A month later had to go back for two fillings and I was beyond nervous and they totally made the whole process bearable! So far so good! Having Netflix is an added bonus!

It’s been too long since my last dental visit. I was a bit nervous. Had a great first visit. Doctor Ahdoot and his entire staff were Professional and welcoming. I had a great experience from my initial call and through my visit. The office is organized clean and state of the art.I’m looking forward to my next appointment, in office teeth whitening. :))

Considering I’m absolute petrified of the dentist, I can honestly say that I’ve never felt more calm at a dentist. A very clean and calm environment. His staff is are so kind; both staff and Dr. Ahdoot provide incredible patient centered care. I look forward to returning.

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


In all of the years I have been going to the dentist (over 50), this is is the best Dentist, staff & facility by far, that I have ever gone to. They make what is not something anyone is excited about going to, the most pleasant experience possible. I can’t recommend Dr. Ahdoot highly enough. He is the absolute BEST!!

Eamon CohenI’ve been coming to Santa Monica Dental Care for about a year now and even though I recently moved out of the area, I will continue to come back. Dr. Ahdoot and his staff are always very friendly and professional and I feel confident that I’m receiving the best care every time I walk through the door.

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


Best dental experience I’ve ever had, hands down. The hygienist Hugo is super friendly, the Netflix right above the dental chair makes it enjoyable, and he was very gentle. I’m not kidding, I was getting cavities filled, and it was so gentle and easy that I didn’t even want to leave the chair because I wanted to finish the episode of “The Office” I was watching on Netflix. Can’t wait to go back, although hopefully just for a cleaning and nothing more serious. So happy I found Dr. Adhoot. He came highly recommended from family and friends as well. Thanks Dr. Adhoot!

Derica L. from Moorpark, CA (Source: Yelp)


They are super fast friendly and really gentle LOVE THEM!!!! Oh and you get to watch Netflix while you get your work done!!!! Sooo cool I just moved to Santa Monica and tried out SMD because it is right down the street from my house. I have had extensive dental work in the past and this was the FIRST dentist that I’ve ever been to thats not in it for the money!!! I have baby teeth and they didn’t want to pull them AMAZING!!! They’ve noticed all the work I’ve done in the past without me having to tell them.

Great experience overall, felt comfortable with the doctor and the entire staff! Great location with free parking. Excellent scheduling and follow up. Really appreciate the compassion and understanding of Doctor Ahdoot. I was comfortable instantly in this beautiful spa like setting. So happy to have found this amazing doctor, and so happy with my new smile! I would recommend this dental office to all my fiends and peers every time.

I was dreading my long-overdue cleaning when I walked into my first appointment at Santa Monica Dental Care. But Dr. Maurice and his team not only made the experience tolerable—they actually made it enjoyable. Will definitely be going back, and would recommend them to anyone looking for a dentist in the Santa Monica area.

Jackie R. from Inglewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing! First time here. I had a dental emergency and was seen same day. Although not fully staffed due to covid-19 the dentist and his assistant were great. I felt comfortable and not as anxious as I normally feel when I go to the dentist. Dr. Ahdoot is my new dentist.

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


This is my favorite dental office. The location is extremely convenient, free parking, and very friendly staff. I visit twice a year for teeth cleaning and every time I have a pleasant experience. Highly recommend!

Dr Ahdoot is very patient, honest, kind and very informative and knowledgeable. I feel comfortable seeing him every 6 months. Hugo and the brunette hygienist are the BEST I have ever experienced EVERY time. In my 31 years seeing dentists they are sweet patient and consistent which I understand its hard when you constantly work with the public so I appreciate the effort in being so nice but of course knowledgeable. I’ve been seeing them for about 3 years now. They are quick and thorough=efficient so I can be on my way and truly get the staining in between the teeth and on front and back of teeth out but are careful to not take any of the anatomy off my front two teeth that had fillings which I was highly worried about but they took the time for me to express that and repeat and assure me they understood and would not remove any of the shape :). They are just incredible to let you explain by being patient and do the job to perfection and not rush you out or. Treat you like a number. That is the difference between a long lasting lifetime patient with no anxiety to see their dentist vs others. See you in 6 months. Also parking is easy which is a huge plus!

Kevin V. from South Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I must say I just had a great visit at Dr Ahdoot’s office , and usually I have a hard time when it comes to getting in the chair. The staff was so welcoming from the minute I walked in to being greeted and Debbie the Hygenist was so sweet , & gentle she explained every step of the way to assure my visit was at ease. Also a great perk was the have Netflix so it totally distracted me from any noises while in the chair . Overall great experience ! Definitely coming back and referring others!

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


I want to thank Dr. Ahdoot for taking care of my teeth.  I’ve had 2 tooth extractions and both procedures were pain free!!  The staff is very accommodating and helpful.  Dr.  Ahdoot is very good at providing a great experience at the dentist while providing very fair pricing.  I’ll be returning in a couple months for an implant.  I have nothing but confidence that procedure with go as smooth as my last 2.  I highly recommend Dr.  Ahdoot!!

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


I was reluctant to find a dentist here in LA.  I’m so thankful  for finding  Santa Monica Dental.  The team here is very accommodating and professional.   After a chipped tooth doc and his team quickly accommodated me and corrected my smile before the holidays

Dakota M. (Source: Zocdoc)


The entire staff was so friendly and made me feel so relaxed! I am always nervous about getting my teeth cleaned because they are sensitive but they were very gentle with me and my teeth feel amazing!

Taylor D. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never written a Yelp review before, but I had to make an account to share my WONDERFUL experiences at Santa Monica Dental Care. The whole team is fantastic and they always make me feel heard, like a priority and at ease. Dr. Ahdoot always takes time to explain what is going on with my teeth and does so in layman’s terms. His fellow employees are incredibly nice and friendly.  I have been recommending this practice to all of my friends. In the past, I have seen dentists who have tried to up-sell me on procedures or products that I did not need.  I had started to lose trust in the dental care system until I found this practice and Dr. Ahdoot. I trust him and his team wholeheartedly and know that they always have my best interest in mind.

My husband and I starting going to our new dentist, Dr. Ahdoot About a year ago and we absolutely love him. Dr. Ahdoot is extremely knowledgeable, honest, kind, patient, and is willing to take the extra time to explain every possible option. When one of my old route canals got infected Dr. Ahdoot and I decided an implant was my best option and he recommended Dr. Liu as my oral surgeon. Dr. Liu is the best oral surgeon I’ve ever seen ( and I have had multiple oral surgeries in the past!)! Dr. Liu is a true professional; he is extremely talented and knowledgeable and takes extra time to explain every step of the procedure so I always feel very comfortable. He also comes into the same office As Dr. Ahdoot so I don’t have to go to different offices to get procedures done! Dr. Liu also always follows up with me personally after my surgery to check in and I really appreciate that extra personal touch. Dr. Liu guarantees his work and is the best of the best; he pulled my old route canaled tooth out in one perfect piece! Overall I highly recommend Santa Monica Dental Care for you and your whole family!!! Thank you Dr. Ahdoot and Dr. Liu.

My favorite dentist office ever just the nicest staff and they work so hard to clean and take the best care of your teeth! I also was advised to do Invisalign and they sent me to a wonderful professional. I appreciate they they sent me to someone else because my issue was not just cosmetic and they really care!

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


I’ve been going here for about a year and THIS IS THE BEST DENTIST IN WEST LOS ANGELES.  Everyone is on point – super friendly, super on top of things in the front office and Dr. Ahdoot and his dental team are great.

Shaw Mangoli (Source: Google)


Dr. Adhoot is a fantastic dentist and the whole office is incredibly well run. I don’t generally have a fear of the dentist but you can’t help but have some anxiety. Dr. Adhoot puts you completely at ease, and his staff is knowledgeable and talented too. Scheduling is easy, especially if you need follow up visits. The office is really welcoming and comfortable, but I’ve never had to wait. I couldn’t recommend him more. Thanks Dr. Adhoot!

Dr. Ahdoot was great. I’ve struggled to find a good dentist in Los Angeles since moving here 6 years ago and finally found one I can feel good about it. His staff was super friendly and they fixed a difficult bonding issue with ease.

Brianna Lopez (Source: Google)


I Would 1st like to point out that i am TERRIFIED of the dentist & need a lot of work done since it had been a while since i’ve last visited the dentist but Dr.Ahdoot and Summer have made my experience easy and pain free as possible. Dr.Ahdoot took the time out of his busy day to follow up with me today after my root canal procedure. Summer always sends out two reminders for my appointments which comes in handy for us busy bee’s. I am surprisingly looking forward to my next visit

Larissa Pfoutz (Source: Google)


Best dentist I’ve ever had. Staff is all very welcoming and kind. I used to be afraid of the dentist, but I enjoy coming to this office. Dr. Ahdoot is very thorough and genuine. Whole office really cares, and its def a refreshing place to be for all your dental needs!

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


I am so glad I found Dr. Ahdoot! I work full-time and have a hard time making doctor/dentist appointments. Dr. Ahdoot came early just to see me, which I thought was super considerate. When I first walked into his office, I was surprised by how beautiful his office is. Dr. Ahdoot took his time to listen to all my concerns and explained everything thoroughly. He is very knowledgeable, honest, and most importantly caring. And it doesn’t hurt that he has a great sense of humor as well! I will definitely be coming back to see Dr. Ahdoot.

Chelsea K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Ahdoot has been my dentist for a couple years now. He is friendly and personable, gentle, and does great work. He is honest but doesn’t make you feel bad. He and his staff, Hugo & Summer, make you feel comfortable and right at home. They use new products and devices, have a pretty and inviting office, and you never wait long for your appointment.  Parking is easy and free in the garage underneath. And you always have a TV with Netflix to keep you distracted in the chair. Generally people dread the dentist but they make the experience where you don’t mind coming every 6 months to be taken care of. Highly recommend.

Patrick James (Source: Google)


Switching dentist is not easy. But Summer, Hugo and Dr. Ahdoot made it really easy for me. I left feeling very comfortable and with a good grasp of what dental work needed to be done in the near future. Dr . Ahdoot does a great job of explains and prioritizing procedures. I appreciate the experience I had at SM Dental Care

Jill T. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am sooo glad I found this place! The parking is easy, the staff is really nice and they’re real people, not L.A. fakes. Summer at the front office is super sweet, professional and explains everything very well. Hugo, the hygienist has a calm nature about him and explains everything really well. Due to my grinding, I’ve been needing a night guard for years. I’m sooo glad I finally found a place that didn’t rip me off for one! I paid for a night guard, X-rays, exam, coconut dental floss AND a cleaning for LESS than what other dentists were quoting me for just a night guard. I feel they really are fair here. It’s a super clean office with a professional and knowledgeable staff and easy parking!. And Netflix while you get your cleaning. What else could you ask for? I really don’t know. And as for Dr. Adhoot he really knows his stuff and doesn’t have an ego like many male dentists in this area. He’s patient and you can tell that he really cares about his work & his patience. And I like that he does the cleanings. I requested a hand scaling vs hydro scaling and he did such a great job. I’ m very, very happy here. Love it!! One more thing, he does amazing veneers! His work is the best I’ve seen and his prices are fair.

Everyone was very kind and took the time to educate me and empower me with options. I trusted and valued their guidance. Highly recommend going here- they even let you watch Netflix while they do your cleaning!

Rya Meyers (Source: Google)


Everyone here is the best! Dr. Ahdoot, Hugo, and Summer are always so warm and lovely. They really know their stuff and care about their patients. They are transparent with what things will cost and realistic and honest about treatments that are necessary vs recommended. I actually love going to the dentist and SM Dental Care is my favorite!

Karla D. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


This has got to be my first yelp review but I was truly impressed. To begin with, this place is beautiful! The environment is nicely decorated and has a welcoming feel not at all like being at the dentist. As soon as I entered the staff was very friendly and helpful with all the paperwork. Dr. Ahdoot is the best dentist I’ve ever had! He is very professional yet easy to talk to. He really tried to best to accommodate my needs with my budget. I definitely didn’t feel like he just wanted to take my money like I have at other places. His assistants are super friendly. Did I mention that I got to watch my choice of movie in netflix while all the procedures where being done.Overall great experience and I highly recommend to anyone.

Santa Monica Dental is AMAZING! It took me a while to find a great dentist around the Santa Monica area and now that I’ve found Dr Ahdoot I won’t be going anywhere else. Dr Ahdoot, Hugo, & Summer make the experience so pleasant. They are all extremely friendly and they make you feel so comfortable during procedures that are typically unpleasant anywhere else. Dr Ahdoot and Hugo always take their time and ensure that I understand every step of the procedure and that all of my questions are answered before they start. I’ve had quite a bit of dental work done lately and every experience in their office has been a positive one!

Stephanie B. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Loved my dentist visit! Gentle and painless. They are super professional and they don’t try to push things hat you don’t need. Also, their dental hygienist Debbie is the best in LA

Kristin Janzen (Source: Google)


Very friendly staff from reception to technicians. Dr Ahdoot is attentive, listens to concerns and finds the best approach to help solve dental problems. The office is very clean and the individual rooms are equipped with TVs so you can watch while the work happens. I’ve been for cleanings and dental work both pre-covid and now during covid. Their PPE and health screenings prior to intake are very thorough. There is plenty of hand sanitizer for everyone to use and all the staff are following every protocol to keep the office sanitized and safe for everyone.

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


5 stars across the board! Probably the BEST dentist out there. Dr.. Ahdoot and his team are wonderful!! Thank God you can drive someone where in LA and NOT have to worry about parking because of the 2 story garage below and yes it is free! I initially purchased a groupon to come in for a cleaning. Now, I haven’t been to the dentist in over 10 years… A little scary I know do I had to go in sooner or later. I checked out his website and all of the useful information located on it and felt even more comfortable with going in. Now Linda is the sweetest person! Everytime I go in there we laugh like we have known each other for years haha Wonderful team, fast and efficient. Didn’t have to wait very long and oh yea, you should print off the admission forms, fill them out at home, and bring them in before you arrive to help speed up your appointment! Dr. Ahdoot walked in and automatically shook my hand and greeted me! We had a small consultation which felt more like 2 buddies catching up on old times lol He is really laid back and so easy to talk to 🙂 I also love how they have  LOW radiation technology for taking x rays! Luckily after taking X Rays I only had 1 major cavity and needed some other fillings but thats it! They have a great payment plan as well to help with the cost. Well I can’t say enough about this place! Clean, quiet, individualized attention and simply the best experience. When I say there is no waiting there is no waiting! They are fast and Dr. Ahdoot knows his teeth!!! THANK YOU!
