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

Javier R. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was terrified of the dentist until I found this dental office. I was referred by a co worker and was the best referral I’ve ever received. From the moment you walk in to the office until the moment you go home, you are treated like a VIP. You are a patient not just another$$. Everyone is a professional to the full extent of the word. They are very patient and will answer all your questions you have at any point of your experience. I don’t know how many times I jumped( no pain, I’m just a chicken) and the doctor will give me time to recover with no attitude or me feeling like I was rushed to get over it. They work with any schedule and will even call you if a patient with an earlier appointment cancels just to give you an option to come earlier. I love my dentist and I can’t believe I’m saying that! I whole heartedly recommend Select Dental Practice

This is the only dentist I will go to. Dr. G is amazing. He’s very kind and always asks if your okay while he’s working on you. A lot of dentists don’t do that. He has always been really good with my son as well. If you go on a Saturday expect it to be very crowded. During the week is best. I moved to New York and got a bad cavity right before my husband moved duty stations to Texas. So when we got to Texas I found a dentist that looked very nice. He wanted $1,500 to fix my cavity. Obviously I didn’t have it. I always didn’t want anyone else touching my teeth other than Dr. G. Lucky we moved back to Cali and he’s able to fix my cavity! His staff is very kind as well. Very sweet ladies

What a great experience at this Dentist. Not only was the waiting very minimal, but they did an amazing job on my deep cleaning, and helping me out with my cavities. My teeth look as good as new. I truly believe they went above and beyond to help me have the best Dental experience. I would absolutely recommend them to anyone. See you in six months doc! Thanks!

Esperanza M. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Guedikian for years now, there is no dentist like him. After going to several places and having bad experiences, I was recommended to him by a co-worker and been going to him ever since. What’s better than a dentist who takes their time to explain and go over your treatment with you. I have to say Dr. Guedikian is the best I’ve ever seen. I didn’t get charged with ridiculous amounts of co payments or anything in that matter.  Being an HMO insurance holder is very hard to come across a Dr. That won’t charge me an arm and a leg for the kind of treatment I needed. But thanks to Dr. Guedikian I can now smile and be happy not only about my teeth but my pocket to. Thanks again Dr. Guedikian looking forward to seeing you and your wonderful staff in 6 months

Marisol H. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


By far the best dentist I’ve been too. The staff is so kinda and caring they really take care for their patients. This was my first time coming to a dentist in four years because we all know going to the dentist can be pretty frightening. The doctor is by far the best and so kind and he really knows what he is doing and shows he cares for all his patients. So glad I can finally say I found an amazing dentist I can count on.  Came in to get two fills and by far got the best experience

Cindy W. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Loving the service here, starting with walking in Veronica was nice and welcoming. I had questions, she helped me answer them all. She asked for my ID and information i sat back down and she kindly walked around to the waiting area to return my ID, other offices would call your name to walk up to grab it yourself, but she saw i was busy filling forms out so she came to give it to me. As i was called to go inside the staff was quick and came in every so often to let me know updates on when the Dr. would be coming in. Dr. G himself is a quick and efficient worker i got in and out of there on a good time scheduling. He was very nice gave me a little container to place my nose ring in before taking my xrays so i wouldn’t lose it. He knew exactly where my teeth was hurting after looking at the xrays and did a awesome job on my filling and cleaning. I will be back for more work in the future with select ! Parking lot is a little small but there is definetly many street parking spots! Overall yes, i would tell friends and family to come here!

Annie L. from South El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to select dental since they opened and i love the employees they are so nice and helpful. (they bring me blankets when i’m cold) they always make me and my family feel welcomed and at ease. my daughter was terrified of dentist from the last children’s place i took her too now she loves dr.g he is very patient with me and my kids. i have referred all my family now we all go to him. thank you dr.g for being an awesome dentist el monte needed you

Rosalie C. from South El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


One of the most BEST dental office ever! Came in with extreme pain from a root canal that wasn’t done right from ANOTHER dental office right away dentist explain everything to me and very attentive fixed the problem! The lady who did my X-ray very attentive during X-ray to prevent me from having more pain. Front office was very informative of my insurance coverage and explained everything even difference from cavity fillings on what covers what doesn’t cover even showed me visuals of what I decide to choose how it will look. The best informative staff very kind feel like I walked into a place with so much care like family. Great job office definitely bringing back my family! Good cost for amazing even calls you next day to see how you are doing just very good doctor who really has passion for his job not just the money like other dental offices !!!

Mario A. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a few trips to this dentist because of a bridge I needed ..I never had one before so I was scared no joke ..well let me get to the point ..after all the treatments and canceling of my appointments and rescheduling of my appointments they were awesome..super awsome.. I recommend this dentist to anyone who wants quality work done ..thank you guys so much for giving me my smile back

Rebecca O. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let Me Start Off By Saying Dr. G & His Staff Are Amazing!  Im The Type Of Person Who Is terrified Of The Dentist && To Be Honest I think I Have Finally Found A Lifetime Dentist Office, Dr. Ortega & Dr. G Have Both Worked On Me & They Have the Most Gentle Hands Ever And always Ask If Your Okay To Proceed, The Work They Do Is Also Great & The Prices Are Incredibly Very Affordable, And The Staff is Amazing & Seriously So Sweet . . The Receptionist Always Answers Any Questions With No Rush. . If You Need Any Dental Work For a good Price & Good Vibes This is the Office To Be At Highly Recommended , And Before You Leave Dr. G Always Makes sure You Are comfortable & Let’s You know You Can Go Back If You Feel Anything Needs To Be Adjusted.. 5 Stars Well Deserved !

Gloria A. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would highly recommend Select Dental! Their choice in maintaining a professional and caring staff is evident through , Dr.G, Lupe, Sophie, Veronica, literally everyone! I have never been to a dentist where they care so much, while being extremely affordable! I have very sensitive teeth because of whitening strips, and Dr.G made sure I was very comfortable and pain-free with any procedure he did! Every time I had a question about anything they were doing to my teeth, each staff clearly and patiently explain everything to me. I Will never look for another dentist, I have found the one!

Adriana V. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recommend Dr. G and his staff to anyone who want and needs professional help! Prior to attending this office I was dealing with a horrible dentist office they couldn’t figure out that I need a root canal I went it and right away Dr G figured it out gave me a fair price and treated my problem he fixed what my other dentist office couldn’t! To anyone who has had a bad experience with other Drs and they have left you traumatized without wanting to go to a dentist go to them they are all caring and gentle and guaranteed to take care of you! Thanks A lot Select Dental Practice

Jose G. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a bad tooh ache and I was unable to find any dentist that would see me right away and as soon as I called Select Dental they made me an appointment for the very next day. They found that I needed a root canal and since I really hated going to the dentist I thought this was really bad but my whole experience with Select dental and Dr. G was great. they took care of me and my tooth ache. My insurance didn’t cover all the work so they worked with me and helped with a very affordable payment plan. I would highly recommend Dr.G and his staff to anyone. they are very professional and friendly

Drew S. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. G and his team are awesome!!!  I wouldn’t trust my teeth with anyone else.  From a regular cleaning to a recent visit for a crown I’ve had nothing but great experiences with him.  The staff are friendly and Dr. G is very attentive and does a great job of making you feel comfortable.  Coming from a dental chicken who avoided going to the dentist, I’ve never felt better about having to go to the dentist.  And I almost forgot to mention his prices are very competitive.  If your looking for a dentist or even a second opinion I suggest giving Dr. G and his crew a try.  Highly recommended!!!  Thanks again Dr. G!!

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


Select Dental has me & my family as their patients for life! Dr. Guedikian is very personable and informative including his staff. The atmosphere is kid friendly; meaning they enjoy your kids and are not bothered by their incapability of sitting still. They know how to handle them 🙂  They work with you and we feel very comfortable with everyone there. I’ve noticed they all have established relationships with their patients. So as soon you walk in those doors, Veronica will say, “Hi Mr/Ms….” I love that! Presentation speaks volumes to me too and I know I’m not alone. So search no more and check them won’t be disappointed. Tell them I recommended you

Daisy M. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to the dentist in years but I finally decided to get checked out. I had been bringing my kids for years now and I was always happy with the services so I decided to give them a try. I’ll just say that I am very pleased with the work I’ve got done so far. They are very gentle, nice and knowledgeable staff. The dentist is a very friendly person with people of all ages. My kids love coming as well. I highly recommend this dental practice to anyone looking for good service

Maria M. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I loved my visit! They are gentle, friendly and knowledgeable staff. I enjoyed how they went over every procedure with me.  Dr. G. is the best dentist I have ever been to.  Since I was a child, dental visits have been nerve inducing, but with Dr. G I feel calm and safe. My best friend, Lorena recommended his office and I’ve been going for about 3 years now. I appreciate their professionalism and mostly their kindness, from the receptionist and everyone else who works with Dr. G.  They are a great team

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


First time at Select Dental was last week and Dr. G was great. The anesthetic he used was a little bit to strong for me but as soon as he saw i was a bit uncomfortable he immediately stopped and made sure I was okay before proceeding. Dr G as well as his employees are so caring, patient, and friendly. Part 2 of my deep cleaning is today and I’m walking in knowing I’m in excellent hands. Highly  recommend!

Best Dentist, Dr. G. He’s very gentle and listens to his clients when working with them. I’ve been with his office since 2008-2009, Awesome Office, including Veronica & group who handles the front Area taking care of her clients with Excellent customer service ! Thanks Select Dental! ~ Irma S

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


I came in with a sever toothache my previous dentist couldn’t help me he wanted to refer me to an specialist for a root canal. A friend of mine recommended Dr G. /Select Dental Practice .She has been coming to Select Dental for years. I needed a root canal on my lower back molar. They took an x-ray Dr. G. Looked at it with no big deal. He has a lot of experience. He did the root canal and a crown with no pain or discomfort. Excellent doctor and staff. His staff assistant and front desk have been with him for over 10 years.  nice family atmosphere they treat you really good. Best of all your PPO insurance goes a long way. My Dental office for life

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


Pros: 1. Great pricing even without insurance. 2. Doctor and staff are all highly skilled and knowledgeable in all procedures. 3. Genuinely cares for his patients and hates to see people suffering from poor dental health. 4. Staff is friendly, warm, and always prompt with reminders. 5.EXTREMELY GENEROUS with anesthesia for those sensitive to pain. 6. Turstworthy, dilligent, and accurate. 7. Doctor is tri lingual and staff is bilingual (English and Spanish) Cons: NONE, My background: I had not been to a dentist for a long time and had no insurance. Shopped around for dentists in my area and was quoted for $8-10k. Couldn’t afford insurance for the type of work I needed done on my teeth. I started avoiding eating in general because the pain was getting severe. Sought out Dr. G when that pain got unbearable. He saw my teeth and knew immediately what needed to be done. He worked with me knowing I had financial difficulty. Every single dentist I have met before Dr. G, forced their “vision” of procedures on me. The type of fillings they wanted to put in my teeth, braces, implants, etc. On the other hand, Dr. G will tell you which teeth need immediate attention, but he will always lay out all of your options and let you decide. He even gives me the option to work on multiple teeth in one visit, which saves me a lot of time and money. Dr. G and staff, thank you so much for your hard work and improving my quality of life! *Ask for Janet or Veronica when calling, they’ll take care of you

Karen F. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


Wow, I dont know what dentist you all were seeing but the dentist my husband and I have been seeing since 2008 is fantastic. Both my husband and I had gum disease and our gums were a mess. We have had root canals, crowns filling, tooth extractions and cleanings. He has rid us of any gum disease. No other dentist was able to do that. Now my husdand and I are doing great. My last check up he said I have great teeth and just needed a cleaning and we have yet to pay anything for his services. I have never heard of any dentist charging 4k for 3 root canals. There is more to that story than what we are being told. Just sayin. As for Erica, if what your saying is true why wouldnt the dentist have said you had a cavity? After all woundn’t that be more money in his pocket do fill a cavity the other dentist said you had? Just a thought. Bottom line, we have had great service since 2008 without a penny out of our pocket.

Rachel G. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was very anxious during my first visit, I hadnt been to the dentist in YEARS! but everyone was so warm and welcoming, they treated me as if I had been with them for years. Veronica is always so sweet and willing to answer any questions you may have. My two children (7 & 8yrs) got their teeth checked and cleaned, Dr. G was so wonderful with them, very patient. My daughter had a horrible experience with a previous dentist and even started to cry when she was having her x-rays done. Lupe was so great with her and gave her a lot of reassurance, my daughter felt a lot better afterward, so much so that when we walked out she said “I want this to be my new dentist” I had treatments done the following week and I’ve never been so happy I went to the dentist! My teeth were pretty neglected and needed a lot of work and Dr. G got right to it! He let me know what I needed to have done, and I said “just fix me”. TADA!! I still need some more treatments but I can eat! On both sides of my mouth!  thank you Dr. G! I’m actually excited for my dentist appointments now! I highly, highly recommend Select Dental and Dr. G to anyone!

Excellent service. Dr. Guedikian and his staff are extremely friendly and professional. The facility is clean everything is explained to you as if speaking with family. I will forever be going to Dr. Guedikian as my primary dentist. During my procedure I was always being checked on to make sure not in any pain. Perfect for anyone afraid of going to the dentist. Setting up an appointment is easy

Kristen H. from Rosemead, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. G and his wonderful staff have provided THE MOST pleasant experience I’ve ever received in a Doctor’s office, let alone a Dentist Office.  With an exam and X-ray the day prior,  we took care of about 5 cavities and 1 root canal the very next day! The pain and discomfort was NONE EXISTENT! Dr. G was so informative, so delicate, and professional throughout the entire 4.5 hour procedure.  Doctor G guides and communicates with his entire team as well as his patients throughout your entire experience which at the end of the day only added more comfort and clarity to my healthy smile! Thank you Select Dental!

Lisa H. from San Gabriel, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’VE been coming to this dentist for 3 years and ever since, I found out they are very reasonable in prices and with no surprise add on charges, Veronica the receptionist let’s you know exactly what your in for and that is such a relieve. she is very attentive and organized. Dr.G is very professional and definitely treats the pearly whites with much care. I feel safe and happy when I leave my appointment each time I go knowing they don’t try to sell things I don’t need and also are very much honest. AND MY TEETH GET THE CARE THEY NEED. I recommend this DENSTIST office if your intentions are to get exactly what u need with no extra charges what so ever

Jennifer L. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


My boyfriend came here to get his teeth cleaned. He had braces for awhile and had taken them off himself and had the glue still stuck on his teeth. The lady who cleaned his teeth did an excellent job removing all the glue. My bf is super happy and confident to smile now. All the doctors and the co workers were really polite and kind. My bf said he is definitely coming back to this dentist. Thank you

Rosie C. from Pico Rivera, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t even know why I haven’t written a review by now. Long overdue for sure. Dr. G and his entire staff is phenomenal. They always have a smile and are always greeting you. They go above and beyond with even the simplest thing as confirming your appointment. I’ve been coming to Dr. G for years. He is so gentle and makes sure you are good throughout the entire dental treatment. I have severe TMJ and continues to be very patient and takes his time until I feel better to continue. He is compassionate and very thorough with his work. He explains all the in and outs of what is the plan. Never leaving a question unanswered. His entire staff is just the same. Veronica (receptionist) is so efficient, always has a smile. Love her!!!! The dentist can sometimes be a scary place but even my son loves going to the dentist. He now has braces with them too and the orthodontist and her staff is awesome too. I don’t live nearby but it’s worth the drive

Alberto R. from Pomona, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to many different dentists in my life. I had developed a sort of fear of going to a dentist. Someone recommended I see Dr G. Well, after 5 years being with him I can honestly say the fear is over. The whole staff at select dental makes you feel welcome and the work done is top notch. Best part about it, you have control over everything. Just raise your hand and the staff stops. My wife, my kids, moms, pops and in laws all are with Select Dental and say nothing but good things about Dr. G. I highly recommend Select Dental practice. The only downside is parking is a little tight, but they don’t overbook so I have never had issues with that

Hans H. from Baldwin Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been coming to Select Dental Practice for years now!! I moved from El Monte to Irwindale a couple years ago and I still drive to El Monte for dental services because I love this place! Veronica the receptionist is nice, friendly and always has a smile. She makes me feel very welcomed every time I come in. Dr. G is great! He has treated my 2 younger siblings as well. I have never had a problem. They always work around my busy schedule but always accommodate me to theirs. I work in DTLA so my commute is long but they still manage to work with me. Walk-ins are always welcomed and the past times that I’ve called to go in without appointments they take me in. The wait time is not long and the services are great. I am content with Select Dental Practice and will continue coming here! I recommend everyone to try this place you won’t regret it! A big Thank you to all the Select Dental Practice staff and especially Dr. G!

Sandra G. from Upland, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was in a lot of pain and a co-worker recommended I went here. I knew I was going to need a root canal, but it turns out I also have cavities. My insurance didn’t cover anything, but they work with you and allow payments. From the minute I walked in they were attentive and friendly. The wait was non existent since they had me finish the paperwork while the doctor saw me. Although, I had to return to finish the root canal, I got painkillers from them and that helped until my next visit which was that same week. I highly recommend this dentist, they’re all very courteous and friendly, and will go out of their way to help you out and work with your situation. I even took my mom there, and my brother also started going

Sandy L. from Azusa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended this place by my coworker. I came in as a first time patient emergency pretty much and they helped me right away! The staff is very friendly and so is Dr. G. He makes sure you’re not uncomfortable and answers any questions you have. He also goes based on your insurance! I have PPO so he did what needed to be done right away and it only cost minimal out of pocket. The rest he said he will do once my insurance is active next year Jan. I’m so glad I came here. I will for sure keep on coming. My dental experience was very good here

Janis K. from South Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this Dentist compared to all the dentist spots I’ve been to not only are all the staff extremely kind but Dr. G is very caring and makes sure to get the job done correctly and efficiently. As soon as you come in there are a variety of magazines provided so you can read while waiting and there is also a plasma television to distract you while waiting to get seen. I came in today with a huge fear because I knew I was taking care of my two cavities that I had and one of the nurse told me not to be scared and that I was in good hands. She even gave me tips on how to floss better and avoid cavities for the future. I am very glad this is my go to dentist and I would 10/10 recommend everyone to come here. I can’t wait to come back 6 months from now to get my new check up!

Diana C. from El Monte, CA (Source: Yelp)


I love this dental office. All the employees are so nice and helpful, not to mention, Dr. G. Hes a great dentist. I was always so scared of the dentist, but one day, i couldnt take the pain i was having and went in as an emergency. They took care of me right away. The Dr. put me at ease right away, and did the treatment on me. I didnt feel anything. He was always so concern of how I was doing thru out the whole process. He did a great job.  I now bring all my family here, they always make you feel welcome, as if youre part of their family

Cristal R. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to this dentist twice and they’re always very kind and informative. Dr. G works to make sure the patient is comfortable throughout the procedure, he has a light hand which is very crucial for me. Other dentists have always been rough. The dentist assistant, i think her name is Christine, went over the insurance costs until I completely understood and wasn’t at all annoyed or impatien
