Dr. Tess Raymundo-Laurente, DDS is such a great dentist. She is very thorough pays attention to every detail. So glad I have a PPO insurance that Simply Dentist accepts I’m not going any place else ever. Highly recommend you give this place a try.

Went to see her for a tooth that had been bothering me for a while. Ended up needing a root canal. She referred me to a great group in Pasadena for this work. But during my visit she was friendly and very helpful. I’ll definitely be going back for my regular maintenance work. Office was clean, staff was friendly, overall a great experience.

I’ll be the first to admit I have had every excuse in the book why I haven’t gone to the dentist. And then I ran out of excuses and just had crippling anxiety about going because it had been so long… that being said, during COVID-19, I woke up with a bump on my gum line and a very sensitive tooth with pain. I went through my insurance and cross referenced on Yelp and I am SO glad I found Dr. Tess. Her office staff was so nice on the phone and were able to get me in, even though they were only seeing emergencies. I met with Dr. Tess and she did xrays and explained to me what was wrong. She was so lighthearted and kind through the whole appointment. I am so happy to have found a dentist that is calming and not anxiety ridden. I know I need a deep cleaning but I won’t be putting it off when all of this craziness in the world is over. Oh, and the best part is that this is the first dentist office I’ve ever been to that doesn’t have horrible photos of teeth everywhere and before and afters that are daunting. Thanks again, Dr. Tess and staff!

Tess is the first dentist I have ever liked. She remembers me and my problems well and asks about my family. I feel like she cares which is a rare trait. She takes the time to make sure I’m properly numb, all the time that I need. What I mean by that specifically is she cares about me, not getting me in and out fast. Money, I don’t feel like she is greedy. I have met dentists who will do everything they can to fill your head with fillings to charge as much as possible. Tess seems to be very honest and does as much work as needed, but also presents options for the future when it looks like a problem is developing. Finally her work, I’m no dentist but from a patient’s POV it seems like excellent stuff. My crowns feel good and look great.

Personable, gentle, and has reasonable rates. Has great “bedside” manner. Would highly recommend. She is fairly busy but will try to see you soon for more urgent issues.

This review is long overdue. I’m lucky to have found Dr. Laurente. Lucky because she’s such an amazing dentist which we rarely see now a days. She’s very nice, smart and caring. Her clinic is always very clean and her staff are very friendly. I hate going to the dentist but not since I met Dr. Laurente. She’s very gentle, she explains everything to you; her process and every single details she’s doing. And she makes sure you are absolutely OK after getting a procedure done, I mean she would literally send you a text message!!! How amazing is that???! I’ve convinced my husband to come see Dr. Laurente and now he’s also a big fan.

Lisle W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I used to positively hate the dentist. They don’t listen, they want to be done with you, they don’t explain. That has all changed since coming here. Doc Laurente creates a calm environment- no rushing around trying to get you in and out of chairs. She takes the time to listen, explain and discuss. Also very clean and professional. I have terrible anxiety issues and getting fillings done is usually just horrible. She took her time to make me comfortable, went at my pace, even offered to turn something on for me as a distraction (they have Netflix to help with the kids but it works just as well for anxiety). I have complete trust in her and that she will make choices to keep my mouth healthy and happy. I’ve seen her several times now so I know it wasn’t just a lucky, one time fluke; this is how she runs her business every day. I highly recommend Simply Dentistry to everybody, but especially those who have had issues with dentists in the past and/or get anxious

Diana S. from Wilmington, NC (Source: Yelp)


Kind, compassionate and knows her stuff! Doesn’t try to upsell unneeded procedures or products. Highly recommend Dr. T and her staff. A great asset to the community!

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


When I first yelped this dentist, and saw that there were only two reviews, I was skeptical. But I went with my gut and made an appointment with her anyways. I am so glad that I did!! The Dentist was so friendly and helpful in explaining everything I had a question about. She was willing to work with my schedule and get me in fast! A great calm atmosphere as well! Love it! So glad I found this gem!

Meghedi H. from Tujunga, CA (Source: Yelp)


No one really like going to the dentist, but when going to see Dr. Laurente it feels like your going to see a friend. Her staff is very friendly and welcoming. I have gotten a few cavities filled and not once did I feel anything. She has a gentle touch when doing her work. I didn’t even feel the shot she gave to numb be out. She does great work that I have referred my whole family to her.

G. R. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


We’ve had Dr. Laurente since we moved to Burbank 5 years ago. She is (hands down) the best dentist my family has ever had! Patient, personable, and generous is how I can best describe her. She does INCREDIBLE work,  AND is a genuinely kind human being. We recently moved to Alhambra, and still drive the 45 minutes or so to get to her for all of our dental needs. Her staff is friendly and make you feel comfortable. What else can I say? The best!

Dr. Tess Raymundo-Laurente, DDS is such a great dentist so far, the best dentists I have ever been to, She is so delicate her hands are like angel. The receptionist Sonia the most welcoming staff I have come across, every time I come, I feel like coming home my experience is great, I am super happy, I love my smile. Thanks to SIMPLY DENTISTRY

Linda N. from Sun Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Teresita Raymudo-Laurente is the absolute greatest. She really and truly understands what I wanted and what my concerns were. She is so lovely and gentle and I wouldn’t go to any other dentist.

Tim F. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr Tess’ for years and it’s time for another amazing review. – She does the BEST cleanings. Very thorough. Nowadays it’s hard to find a dentist that does their own cleanings. We talk for like 10 minutes about life, kids and work, before anything starts! She has NEVER pushed extra work on me, if anything she says, “it’s ok for now”. Dr. Tess is a very slow, caring dentist and her front office and assistants are the best. Stop reading and set an appointment. 😉 PLUS- very COVID Safe!

Rita T. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Tess for a few years now. She helped me out in 2014 when my student dental insurance was expiring and helped me take advantage of it while I could. Then I entered the workforce and was able to use sigma to remain a patient. I drive down from Arcadia but she is definitely worth it. Her cleanings are thorough, her office is immaculate, and her jokes are hilarious. Aside from regular cleaning she’s fixed a few chipped teeth for me and I have never had any issues with any procedures done by her. I have and will continue to reccomended Dr. Tess and her team to all family and friends in and around Burbank. Sonya at the front desk is also extremely helpful and prompt to answer my calls and any questions I have.

Kat C. from San Fernando Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m so bummed that my insurance no longer covers Simply Dentistry because they have become the best dental office I’ve ever been in. Everything in this office is well-kept and clean. Dr. Laurente and her staff are very trust worthy and reliable, and I’m now starting to realize how hard it is to find these qualities in other dental offices. Thank you Dr. Laurente! I will for sure come back to your office when my employer offers PPO again.

Rosemary O. from Pacoima, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is long over due! Dr. Tess is hands down the best dentist I have ever had in my life!!! I came to her with so many problems and she took care of my teeth like no other dentist ever has. She made sure that the necessary procedures were done and the most important ones first. I no longer suffer from pain and my smile is almost like it used to be. Sadly moved and couldn’t take her with me. And also she was amazing with my kids. Everytime it was time for the annual check-up she did everything to make them comfortable and made the process easy for them. Thank you so much for everything Dr. Tess!!!

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


I have found my dentist! I am so happy..I’ve never had a regular dentist that i go to and trust until now. She is so gentle and kind and cares about her patients. My gums bleed when i brush and floss. She gave me a deep cleaning and not once did i feel any pain. I told her my jaw cracks and pops and gets sore. During the cleaning she kept giving me breaks to rest my jaw and even massaged it, which made a big difference. I was entirely comfortable with her and am so happy i found her. She saw me on a Friday at 6pm and my next appt is on a Saturday, which works great with my schedule.

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


I want to become a new patient but your office phone listed is not in service and does not accept voicemail even….Referred by my coworker. Still want to make an appointment but I can’t get a hold of you…

Alycia G. from Santa Rosa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had some pretty extensive issues with my teeth and, in the past, have had some dentist make me feel less than because I wasn’t blessed with the perfect dental gene or the greatest dental insurance to cover all the necessary (and frankly..unnecessary) recommended treatments. I went on a hunt to find a new dentist after my insurance through work changed and I had a filling that needed to be fixed. Granted, the list was a bit limited, but I was drawn to Dr. Tess because she was really close by and was open on Saturdays!! That is always a bonus. My first appointment was to address the ongoing issues and for a cleaning. I was the first in on a Saturday morning and after filling out my paperwork, was taken right in. I had my children with me because I had no one to watch them and the staff and Dr. Tess were so accommodating. They brought out two chairs so that could sit by me and turned on the overhead t.v. so that they could watch while she took care of me.

I have finally found a dentist I look forward to seeing! Dr. Laurente and her amazing team  make sure I feel welcome, comfortable, and informed about every step she is taking.  She is meticulous with detail and has the kindest bedside manner I have ever experienced in a dentist.  For the first time in my life I can honestly say it is a joy to go see my dentist!

Janie A. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Well after many years in and out of the dentist chair, I have finally found Eureka in the Dental world! Dr T. Laurente and her staff are the BEST in the West and from my first encounter I knew that she is the one to look after all my dental needs! After a nightmare visit with a dentist in Toluca Lake who wanted to destroy my teeth and smile and LIFE, I ran to Dr Laurente and she said there really was not any shattering problem’s that I needed the deep cleaning, which she did for me as she played a film to entertain. I felt no pain or discomfort and actually every time I go to see her I feel as relaxed as if I have visited a 5 star spa! Her warmth and genuine kindness is 10 star and her knowledge and expertise and gentleness makes every visit like a homecoming! She will be my dentist as long as she in practice and I am so thankful to her and her extraordinary staff! It is so easy to book my next visit/with PLEASURE!!! Thank you for being here in Burbank!
