I cannot put into words how wonderful Dr. Raffi Barsam is! I do have a personal story that might explain a lot, but this is not about me. Dr. Barsam is the most caring, compassionate, genuine man I have met (next to my husband of course). You often forget that he is the “Dentist”. He is professional, well educated, well practiced, and just all around AMAZING. I have visited a number of Dentists in my time; not a single one compares to Dr. Barsam and everything he does.
Of course, all of his supportive staff is wonderful. One of the things that stand out to me that is displayed by all the staff at this office, is how non-judgmental they are. It creates a sense of calm, safety, and positiveness. Thank you Dr. Barsam and staff for all you do and how you do it!

All of my experiences at Dr. Barsam’s office have been amazing. The treatments are delivered as promised and definitely get you toward your goal of a healthy smile. Dr. Barsam & his staff are always so friendly and do everything they can to accommodate you.

Everyone was super nice and very professional. My Dentist, Dr. Khorsandi he took his time to explain in details what was going to happen. The day of my surgery my dentist made sure I ready and explained what he would take place. After it was over he shared with me what he saw and corrected. He himself called me to see how was doing the next day and once again he explain how important it was to follow the after care instructions.

Cleanest office. Best dentist. I had a gap in my teeth my whole life. and was embarassed to smile with my mouth open. After one visit, Dr. Barsam changed that by using veneers. Now I can finally smile without being self conscious. I feel blessed. Thank you Dr. Barsam!

Professional,organized, and very friendly staff. Positive experience removing my teeth and I’m excited to start my braces journey. Lulu i thank you for recommending me to Dr. Raffi

My whole family comes! My kids love the staff and my daughter, who use to have high anxiety about the dentist due to another bad experience, is so comfortable with everyone here especially Dr. Barsham! He and his whole staff are so great with my kids. We come all the way from Pasadena and it’s worth the drive! I love seeing all the staff too! They are like family! It’s a happy place!

Dr. Barsam is by far the best dentist I have ever been to. His staff is a pleasure to deal with, his commitment to customer service is unparalleled, and he’s 100% there for his patients. I truly cannot recommend him enough.

Michael Klevens (Source: Google)


The BEST Dentist, hands down. The staff are extremely friendly and ALWAYS remember me. They make an effort here, and it’s apparent. They are polite and will listen to your needs. Dr. Barsam is very professional and fun. I got my Mom to switch from her long time Dentist to come to Dr. Barsam. Lastly I want to point out that I’m a Medical Device Sales Rep, I see the good, the bad and the ugly of Doctors and Dr. Barsam is above good, he’s great

Monica G. from Vestal, NY (Source: Yelp)


Were to begin.. Dr.Barsam is AMAZING!!!!!Such a caring ,compassionate and perfectionist doctor.  I  needed some dental work and have been postponing it for a very long time. Dr.Barsam made me feel good about getting my dental work done and was NOT pressured at all to get it done right then and there.  I should of just done it then, I finally did and WOW!!!! Im am very happy and please with is work, to the point that I cried.. (good tears). Will definitily send referrals his way and he will continue to be my only dentist..Can I say he is also very good with (tough) children!!!! He can handle pretty much everything. Once again Thank you Dr.B and staff for my wonderful new teeth!!! (Lol)

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


WOW! What am amazing place. Doctor Basam is super friendly, caring and knowledgeable. Donna in the front desk is very pretty, smart, helpful and always reminding me of my appointments the day before. I am proud that so many of my family/friends come here. Place is always spotless and clean. Shalom!

Dr. Barsam is an EXCELLENT Dentist and has helped ease my dental phobia with his superior techniques and kind chair side manner. His whole staff is incredibly nice and caring and truly efficient. They took me as emergency today when I developed excruciating pain on 2 of my back molars. Plus, I had a sore or an abscess from the infected tissue. I was a mess! I walked in literally crying. I walked out 2 hours later smiling after receiving treatment. I need to go back to continue treatment for a little bit but what Dr. Barsam and his team did was exactly what I needed. There’s no B S. His prices are fair and they don’t keep you waiting. 5 stars! Highly recommended!!

Leslie C. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just WOW!!!! I suffered an accident as a kid which led for me to have dental trauma. I’ve met some very scary dentist throughout my journey. But I can finally say I met the one! Dr. Barsam did an excellent job. Not only does he have great bedside manner he is also very caring. Not to mention his staff are extremely nice. I recommend him for anyone looking for great dental care.

Before I found Dr.Barsam I would be so fearful of the dentist that I rarely went. After finding him and his amazing staff I try to go every 6months. I will not go anywhere else and I recommend him and his staff to all my friends and family. He really is the best!! Thank you Dr.Barsam and staff, best in LA!!!

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


Dr Barsam is the absolute best. I hadn’t gone to the dentist in over 10 years. He was patient and answered all my questions and alleviated all my concerns.  The results have been amazing. I have a smile that I’m proud of and my teeth are whiter than ever. Thanks Dr B!

Hakop Krpikyan (Source: Facebook)


I had a fear of going to any dentists, then Tammy referred me to go to Sherman Oaks Dental Aesthetics. It’s been 1 1/2 years I’ve been their patient and I can’t thank enough to Dr. Barsam and his wonderful staff. I am so grateful about the location and my outcome results.

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


Dr. Barsam is a needle in the hay stack, a hidden gem ECT! You name it. I’ve had Dr. Barsam as my dentist for the past 10 years. He’s very knowledgeable and can do practically anything. I have started my Invisalign journey but will need some cosmetics after I’m completed. I can’t wait to see and show off my new smile! Thank you Dr. Barsam for everything you do!

Today I went in for a consultation with Dr. Barsam. I just like many others do not like going to the dentist. However, I can not tell you how excited and thankful I am that I found an amazing dentist. The facility is clean, high tech and the staff very friendly. Dr. Basam made me feel very comfortable and all my questions were answered. I found my permanent dentist and I will be going back for cosmetic dentistry as they have many options to help with financing. Thank you Dr. Barsam & staff!!!

After a year of researching the right place to start my invisaligns, I was referred by my co-worker and without a dought Dr. Barsam was right place for me. The staff goes over and beyond to make you feel welcome, comfortable, their excited for you on your treatment. I highly recommend Dental Aesthetics

He is the best and the most reasonably priced dentist i have ever been too…he is amazing with kids and adult’s. Not to mention he is very easy on the eyes. His office staff and the environment is awesome.

Ellen G. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am always so pleased with the service I receive from the staff. Everyone is very friendly and professional, the office is neat and tidy, the procedure rooms are state of the art, and, of course, Raffi is always so warm and friendly. I have recommended this office to everyone who ever mentions anything dental! I have had extensive cosmetic dentistry performed by Raffi and have received more compliments than I can count! I also have a friend that I referred and he is extremely pleased! Keep up the good work!

The office staff is so sweet and inviting when you walk in. The dental assistants are always gentle and professional, and Dr. Barsam is the best! He will thoroughly explain any treatment needed and will make you feel at ease.

Aside from being conveniently close to home, this place and Dr. Raffi are FANTASTIC!! I am ALWAYS greeted with smiles and Dr. Raffi remembers the smallest details of my process, even if I haven’t visited in months! The reception area is always clean and smells delightful (not like most dentist office) and they have upgraded their space and equipment! I have a slightly smaller mouth than most ‘adults’ haha so I HATED going to the dentist but Dr. Raffi is so gentle and has the best techniques when working on my teeth that I have found a new sort of excitement whenever I have an appointment coming up. I was dreading having to put that purple mold stuff for my INVISALIGN but they don’t use that anymore!! They have the coolest 3D scanner that they use to create a 3D image of your teeth on a screen…HEAVEN!! I have been coming to this dentist for 2 years now and I can honestly say that to take the time to write a review is just another factor in the positive impact this establishment has made in my life. I am in the process of fixing my overcrowded teeth and I cannot wait to see the end results! You can rest assured you are in GOOD, CARING hands. Thank you everyone at Sherman Oaks Dental Aesthetics. You guys/girls are the BEST in the Business! *Side note: Dr. Raffi gets booked FAR in advance so make sure to get your appointment in, most likely during the week since he is always booked on weekends

Dr Barsam came highly recommended by my spouse and mother in law and! They were both right. What a lovely team and what a great doctor. The minute I met him I felt comfortable. He took time to listen to my issues and fixed it in no time. Found myself a really good dentist here. Thank you 

Stephanie D. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


I use to hate going to the dentist and avoided it. Dr. Barsam’s office has changed all of that. The staff is so helpful! Dr. Barsam is gentle and careful and i actually relax. He notices any discomfort right away and always checks to make sure i am doing okay. As a result of my visits I am taking significantly better care of my teeth. Now I understand the importance of trusting your dentist, when you do, it’s far easier to show up!

Going there for more than 6 years & loved Dr Barsam … I live in Long Beach & it takes me more than 3 hours of driving every time to go there & back … last 6 years was a good run till today that they rejected to see me for some miscellaneous stuff just for being 17 minuets late … not the best way to treat your long time customer … time to change to locals closer to where I live .

Haik D. from Valley Glen, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was recommended to Dr. Barsam by a friend of mine also by his brother in law. I’m so glad that they did because I hate going to the dentist and going to him is not bad at all. He is very gentle and makes sure your ok during the whole process. His entire staff is very kind and friendly and seem to work together very well smooth operation . I brought my son and daughter here and my wife already has an appointment. It was my kids first visit to the dentist and I was surprised on how comfortable they made my kids feel. I have found my new family dentist and I will be coming in to finally get all my teeth fixed correct.  I have already recommended Dr. Barsam to a couple of my friends and would recommend him to everyone.

Great dentist! The staff are friendly and always remember us. They make an effort here, and it’s apparent. They are polite and will listen to your needs. Dr. Barsam is very professional and fun. My whole family comes here and we love it! I never had fear of dentists, but here I activately want to come!

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


The entire team of professionals in this office are terrific. I have been coming to Dr. Barsam for over 13 years and even though the office is 12 miles from my home and about an hour through traffic, I have no plans of leaving! Thank you Dr. Barsam and Team!

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


This dentist is simply amazing. He did a great job and I left at ease. I am usually nervous about going to a dentist but Dr Barsam is the best. The girls in the front helped me as I was leaving by calling my prescription into the local pharmacy in Encino and it was ready before I arrived. VIP service is what you get with these guys.

Brian F. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Barsam is definitely worth the 25 mile drive I have to endure since moving out of the area. Before discovering Dr. Barsam 7 years ago, I had tried 4 dentists looking for someone at least close to competent. Dr. Barsam has clearly exceeded those expectations if I & countless others have taken the time to review him

Dr Raffi is the kindest, nicest dr I have ever met ! He is caring, he is Patience, not overbearing. He listens and hears all the concerns and addresses them. Great staff! great office! great care! Great dr!

I’ve seen Dr B since 2005. I recommend all my friends go to him. He is the best dentist you will ever meet. Honest, conservative, gentle, and practically pain free. You will not be disappointed. He is like family!

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


My husband and I have been going to see Dr. Barsam for about three years now and he is an excellent dentist. HIs staff is great too! They are all so nice and do excellent customer service. We are moving out-of-state and are sad that Dr. Barsam won’t be our dentist anymore. I thought by writing this review someone else would come across it and choose him. He is so personable and does great work. He filled some of my cavities and also took out my old metal fillers that were failing. My teeth are doing great, as are my husbands. If you’re looking for a dentist, I highly recommend Dr. Barsam. Honestly, you won’t be disappointed
