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


I hadn’t been to the dentist in a few decades, but I had cracked a tooth in half and needed to have it fixed. I found Dr. Mahooti online and her reviews were outstanding, so I called and explained my situation. Her administrative staff were great. They gave me an appointment right away. I have to admit, I was seriously not looking forward to getting in the dentist chair after 20 years of not visiting the dentist. Fixing my tooth wasn’t easy, it required a root canal and a crown, and initially the thought of going through all that scared me. Now that it’s done, I see I had nothing to worry about. I was consistently in very kind, capable hands. Dr. Mahooti is pretty terrific. She’s kind, understanding, and extremely professional. So, my fear of going to the dentist is now a thing of the past. Thanks Dr. Mahooti. I’ll be seeing you soon, and on a regular basis from now on.

The staff is kind and warm. Dr. Sheila Mahooti is very professional, courteous, friendly has a great bedside manner. The office is nice and comfortable. The wait was not long before I went in for my invisalign consultation. Very thorough with explaining the procedure. There is a parking structure with paid parking, no validation. However most patients park at the surrounding stores or meters on the street and walk in.

This was my first visit to this office.  I live in CT but had to see a dentist in the Sherman Oaks area and my son-in-law, who goes to Dr. Mahooti, strongly recommended that I go the see her.  He was right! The office was able to schedule my visit quickly and Dr. Mahooti was able to do the first of the two visits for a new crown right then and there.  The office is bright and cheery. All employees are very professional and talented in the work that each is required to perform – from the front desk to the dental assistant and, of course, Dr. Mahooti. I left their office with a temporary crown and will return in two weeks for the final placement of the new crown.   I highly recommend her practice not just for cleaning but for the placement of crowns.  It was a pleasure!

I’ve been incredibly lucky to find Doctor Mahooti and call her my dentist! She has guided me through my lengthy Invisalign process with genuine care, professionalism and expertise! Whether a simple cavity removal or a lengthy treatment, I’ve always been incredibly satisfied with the results! Her staff is friendly, her office is very clean, and she always checks on you after a consultation though a text or phone call to see how you feel. I recommend her whole-heartedly for all your dental needs!

Dentist Sheila Mahooti and her AMAZING assistant (who’s name escapes me!) at Signature Smiles L.A. are as good as it gets!  They took EXCEPTIONAL care of me throughout the whitening process. (I went for 4 sessions on the bottom teeth, 3 on the top). They checked in with me frequently to see how I was doing and if I was experiencing any pain. My comfort (safety) was truly their overall priority, and that made me feel very secure.  In addition to being given very clear post-whitening instructions, Dr. Mahooti even did a mini check up of my teeth and explained the problem of my receding gum lines and how to address the problem.  But I guess the REAL proof of the pudding rests in the INCREDIBLE TRANSFORMATION they made to my teeth! (See before/after picture below!!) In the past, I have never been able to get my bottom teeth white by using whitening strips or even the dental trays. But Dr. Mahooti was able to get them optic white!  Dr. Mahooti and her assistant did an astounding job and I highly recommend them!

Madinah A. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I google dentist offices to find the best one, and I loved everything that Dr. Sheila Mahooti, the website, and office staff provided for me!  Mahooti really takes the time to explain in detail regarding your dental visit.  The staff was friendly and welcoming!  The office is clean, beautiful  and I am always happy with the results after each! I like how after my first visit she personally sent me a follow up text/email regarding my visit and welcomed me to the Signature Smiles of LA Family!

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


Had been looking for what seemed like forever to find a dentist I could trust with my teeth.  So happy to have found Dr. Mahooti!  Professional, and thorough examination in a clean and comfortable environment aside, Dr. Mahooti is always checking in to see if theres to much pain, or if I’m comfortable, etc.  This sort of patience and compassion is exactly what someone such as myself, who has never felt very comfortable with sharp pointy things in my mouth, absolutely needs while in the confines of a dentist chair.  Needless to say, I highly recommend.

Easy and flexible scheduling, and (most importantly) excellent work. Has taken care of myself, spouse and mother, and everyone has been very happy. We always receive a followup text or call to check in after any work. Highly recommend.

Alex M. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


WOW! Love Dr Sheila Mahoot and her amazing staff! They really know how to make you feel comfortable and truly go above and beyond with the level of service. There state of the art equipment is also superb. Couldn’t ask for anything better! My husband and I have upcoming appointments for invisalign woohoo!

I went in for a routine cleaning, and I was told I would have to get fillings and a root canal, which I’ve been told before by another dental practice. The costs were very low compared to other places I’ve been. The office is very clean, the receptionists make you feel welcome, the dental assistants are very careful and kind, and the dentists explain everything that will happen and make sure you feel safe.

My experience was great at Signature Smile. They are very professional, very honest, and friendly. The office is very organized and clean. I recommend them to everyone who wishes to have a professional and honest opinion.

Chris B. from Zürich, Switzerland (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mahooti was by far the best Dental experience I’ve had yet.  Her and assistant Angela were very attentive to my needs and provided an ideal experience when I needed a crown for an upper tooth.  Would highly recommend.  Dr. Bina performed a root canal here as well and was also as good as it gets.  Root Canals are not fun but this one was painless and fast and both Dr Bina and his assistant made it very tolerable. Thanks!

Anh L. from Roseville, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheila Mahooti is amazing! I came to her for Invisalign and have zero regrets. She is knowledgeable and very caring. I could tell that results on her patients are really important to her. 100% transparency on her side with cost and what she’s doing and why she’s doing it. She’s also very flexible. I wanted to start my Invisalign right away and she let me do my cleanings and x rays the day of right away so I could do my imprints to went the model of teeth in and get the retainers as soon as possible. Overall, just amazing!!!

Brenda V. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here to see Dr. Mahooti for a crown and I have to say that she is by far the best dentist that I have ever gone to. She was very informative and kind. She also gave me a lot of options to choose from. Dr. Mahooti listened to me when I decided on an option of my own instead of pushing anything on me. I drove over an hour to be seen by her and I would definitely recommend going to her for any treatment. I am very happy with my dental crown. Dr. Mahooti has been very attentive as well by checking up on me by messaging me after every procedure.

I have the worst dental anxiety! I went in for an exam/cleaning and found out I needed a lot of major work done! I was soooo beyond nervous but everyone helped calm my nerves, and the dentist was so extremely gentle! I no longer have anxiety about the dentist!

Ariana S. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy that I chose Dr. Mahooti as my new dentist. She is so incredibly sweet, knowledgeable and friendly. Her office is also super clean! She made me feel comfortable right away and answered all of my questions promptly and with ease. Dr. Mahooti really knows her stuff! I ultimately had a great first experience today and I’m truly looking forward to our next appointment. Who would’ve ever thought I’d be excited to go back to a dentist office?! P.S. Great location and easy parking — just an extra plus!

I highly recommend Dr. Mahooti of Signature Smiles of LA for all you dental needs. Dr. Mahooti has a special skill of being very thorough, while also being very gentile. I have had two visits now, and both have been very relaxing as I know I am in very capable hands! Dr. Mahooti also follows up with you after your visit to make sure everything is fine, which is very comforting to know she truly cares.

I went in to get my crown replaced. I am very impressed with Dr. Sheila and her team. Such a wonderful, friendly office that provides high level dentistry work. I am extremely picky and notice every flaw, so when I tell you the whole process was seamless, it means a ton! I would recommend Signature smiles to anyone. The crown turned out perfect, fits amazing, the process didn’t hurt a bit, the coloring is seamless, and was affordable. Thank you to Dr. Sheila and her amazing team! Easily the best dentist I’ve ever been to.

Pamela S. from Valley Glen, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Sheila Mahooti is amazing! I am completely satisfied with the work she performs along with the professional courtesy she provides. She works with your schedule to set up appointments and follows up after your visit to make sure everything is well. I highly recommend her and I am happy that I found my dentist!

Katherine M. from Monterey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Mahooti is the best. She is so warm and an expert in her field. I am terrified of the dentist and have put off going for many years. She helped me calmly tackle it one problem at a time and worked with me financially, allowed me to be realistic and upfront about what was possible.

Lani B. from Encino, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mahooti is amazing.  Not only do some of my teens have checkups & cleanings with her, but she also does teeth whitening.  She has always texted afterward to make sure my kids are doing okay after their procedures.  We love her & have recommended her to friends.

Julie Wilson (Source: Google)


I have been in LA for 5 years now, and have tried multiple dentists only to be disappointed in all of them….until I found Dr. Sheila Mahooti at Signature Smiles! She is amazing and thoroughly examines your teeth instead of just glancing over them. Her communication style, bedside manner, and overall professionalism makes her the best dentist I’ve ever had. She’s also very good about using the right amount of novocaine so you don’t feel any pain but you’re also not numb for the entire day! Dr. Mahooti is now our forever family dentist!

Debby T. (Source: Google)


Dr. Mahooti and her team are the best. They’re always great with me and make sure I’m comfortable whenever I’m getting any treatments done. I just did the ZOOM teeth whitening and I highly recommend it for everyone. 🙂 The teeth cleaning I get are always great too and my teeth look and feel so much better!

Marina B. from Encino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been moving around a lot the past two years and so have had to go to many different dentists for my 6 month cleanings. Dr. Mahooti was by far the best one I have seen! She was very nice and friendly while meeting me and took the time to discuss everything. She didn’t make me feel rushed or like she had other things to be doing. She had a lot of helpful recommendations to keep my teeth healthy and didn’t try to up-sell me on anything like a lot of other dentists. I am happy to have finally found a dentist I want to return to!

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


I received a referral from a trusted friend to bring my son to Dr. Sheila Mahooti.  I am so glad I did!   There was no “hard sell” for unneeded procedures or services with this dentist.  Dr. Mahooti is friendly and professional.  The staff was great, the communication was great, and the work they did on my son was great.  Dr. Mahooti will be my son’s new dentist and mine as well.

Keyla S. from Central LA, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Sheila Mahooti and the staff at signature smiles are truly amazing! They’re extremely caring of each individual client and really want to genuinely help you. I’ve had the best experience with the signature smiles team. Thank you for the pleasant and amazing experience. Sheila will constantly meet your needs in a timely matter and is extremely responsive. I highly recommend signature smiles of LA because they truly are the best in their field! A+++

Tina N. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I traveled quite a distance (in LA speak) to visit this office and I am sure glad I did! Dr. Mahooti really went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable, communicated extremely well, and best of all I honestly feel like I got the most thorough teeth cleaning to date. She had procedure for me to let her know in case I was uncomfortable or in pain, but surprisingly I had the least uncomfort in comparison to the many cleanings I’ve had throughout my life. Very well organized (which I really appreciated), laid back, and nice view in the office! (see pic). The one thing I will say is the assistant who did the polish after was a bit sloppy and it was getting all over my face but no big deal, lol. I would definitely recommend this office, Dr. Mahooti is a fantastic dentist!!

I love this office! The doctor and staff really put me at ease. I am very nervous for dental procedures. They were so accommodating! I appreciated how thorough they were, and the doctor explained everything step by step to be certain I was comfortable with the work being done. She was very gentle and patient. I found a gem of a dentist and a very caring dental team. I definitly recomend this practice!

I wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Mahooti for your dental work. I went to her office for a consultation to fix the appearance a crown I have on my front tooth because I am getting married this summer and I have been dreading the idea of having wedding photos with my tooth looking grey. This tooth has bothered me for years and has seriously affected the way I see myself in pictures and how I feel about my overall appearance. Rather than dismissing my fears of my grey tooth in my wedding photos – Dr. Mahooti listened to me and came up with a plan to fix my front teeth before my wedding day. In order to fix my grey tooth and make it blend with my smile, she recommended veneers. After getting the temporary veneers she followed up with me that weekend and wanted to know if I was completely satisfied with the results before I get my permanent ones – I mentioned to her that I loved the temporary ones but asked her if she thought one side of my teeth looked longer than the other and sent a picture – turns out my gum line is lower on one side of my teeth than the other – she then scheduled another appt for me to fix the temporary veneers and even out the smile line of my gums before I got the permanent ones. Her extreme attention to detail and making her patients wants and needs first make her a one of a kind experience in dentistry – I would recommend her to anyone and know that if you go to her you will be taken of completely!

Bruce G. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr, Mahooti is an excellent dentist! Her academic and professional credentials (which include being a faculty member at the prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry) are very impressive. But much more than that, she has a gift for explaining things in a way that is logical and easy to understand AND she makes her patients feel very relaxed and at-ease when they come into her office.

Ryan V. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Signature Smiles of LA is the place to go!  I was introduced through a ZOOM whitening special and then found that Dr. Mahooti and the team are absolutely amazing!  I have super sensitive teeth and she and the other girl continued to check on me every couple minutes and made sure I was doing alright.  Also, I noticed each time Dr. Mahooti came by to me and another patient near me, she called us by our first names and was just so personal and nice!  She is such a great person and very knowledgeable.  She also checked on me later by phone to make sure I was 100%!  She is such a great person and very knowledge.  I highly recommend Dr. Mahooti and Signature Smiles of LA to anyone in need of a great dentist!

I love this location! The young ladies up front are so professional and courteous! And then there is Andrea in the back office who is my Dental Hygienist is she a hoot? Very professional, very through, very careful and friendly to all her patients. Talks to everyone and makes your feel welcome! Thanks Kody Bonin for such a great job!!!

Dr Mahooti is amazing!  I highly recommend signature smiles of LA to anyone who wants to get the best treatment, but besides receiving top class treatment, Dr Mahooti and the rest of the staff that work here are very friendly and make you feel very comfortable.
When you’re cold, they offer you blankets, when you’re hungry they offer you food and drinks, honestly whenever I visit I am quite sad to leave because it is very homey (honestly), and this is coming from someone that once hated dental visits.  Thank you Dr Mahooti and all the staff at Signature Smiles of LA!

I am not a person who likes to do the social media thing but I felt that Dr. Sheila Mahooti and her assistant Gay deserve the praise and admiration they well deserve.  It was a quest of mine to find a good, honest, reliable dentist. I searched for a year with no success. My wife recommended Signature Smiles of LA. Based on my previous bad experiences with dentists, I was highly doubtful, at first, about going to see this dentist but at the end of the day I was so glad i did. Dr. Mahooti and Gay were very friendly. They made me feel at ease and honestly listened to my concerns , They both took care of my teeth in a professional and timely manner while showing a humorous side to their personalities.    I give them 5 stars!
