Dr. Montoya is outstanding! I have PPO dental insurance plus I take exceptionally well care of my teeth. My advice: Don’t feel entitled to the best of materials if all you have is low income Medi-Cal/Denti-Cal and then blame it on the dentist when you don’t care for your teeth the way you should al year long. Take ownership of your bad habits! I have no idea why people complain about $ 200 dental bills and copays while they are willing to pay $ 800+ for iPhones. I have been going here since 2015 and I am as happy as I could be. I get treated very well because I have a positive attitude.

Dr Montoya is great, very thorough and explains everything to you. She has a very gentle hand, I take my 2 children (3 and 5) to her and they don’t cry. Office staff is very corteous. Great experience.

I adore this Dental establishment!!! Everyone is very informative, and extra patient with me. I’m such a big ball of nervousness when going to the dentist. They literally baby step me during a procedure. I am so scared and happy when I go. Scared because of nerves, happy because I know I’m in good hands. I highly recommend !!!! I’m proud to call you my dental office. This dental office is gonna rid me of my dentist phobia because of how gentle everyone is This office, is a really huge blessing I’m truly grateful Thank You!

Most professional and organized dentist visit I’ve ever had. The receptionist were very resourceful and helpful. The dentist was so nice and gentle with my teeth that I did not feel a thing . I had a wisdom tooth extraction done in under a minute. Highly recommend.

Dr. Montoya’s staff are very professional and pleasant! I am not a fan of having any work done in my mouth but Dr. Montoya was also very professional and very informative. She is 1000% better than the last barbaric dentist I went to and I will be going back! Grateful to be able to go to her.

Dr. Montoya was very pleasant and professional, even with a busy office first thing on a Monday morning. She took the time to explain my X-rays and further treatments. I was made to feel very comfortable and at ease, even though I had been guilty about not seeing a dentist for over 5 years.

The office was very busy upon arrival and had an extended wait due to a 2 hr last minute appointment. Dr Maia and her staff were extremely polite, helpful and i was given the most in depth experience that i have ever received. I felt prepared walking out of the office for future visits.

Wonderfully professional, friendly and gracious staff. Everyone does her job efficiently, knowledgeably, and with good humor. It is a lovely office. Never more than one or two people waiting in the office. They know how to schedule to get everyone in and out in good order. Dr. Montoya is very professional. She explains what needs to be done and has taught me good dental hygiene that no other dentist has every told me — and I am 59 years old.

I was very pleased with the service, she was very pleasant and professional. She answered all my questions and the staff was very friendly and inviting. I would highly recommend the office to family and friends.

The waiting room was packed and I at first I thought of that as a bad thing. Then I realized these are people that are either new patients like me or returning patients. Either way they chose Dr. Montoya office. When I met Dr. Montoya she introduced herself right away and had such a pleasant attitude the entire time. I’m the type that has a bunch of questions and Dr. Montoya and her team was eager to answer them all. I was very satisfied with not only the service but the prices as well and look forward to returning to Dr. Montoya for future service.

I love this place.. the staff are super nice and helpful they took the time to answer all my questions that I had about my insurance. I had worked done with Dr. Montoya and like any adult I was freeking out, (on the inside of course) but she made me feel relaxed and calm. I did not feel a thing which was great Im so pleased with the results. I love my smile its perfect !! :). I now take my two children who are 7 and 3. They both like going to see her, I like that I can be in the room with them the whole time. I didn’t think my 3 yr old was going let him self but Dr. Montoya was patient with him and he did very well on his own. Thanks Dr. Montoya and staff for every thing!!. I will recommend my family and friend to this office.

Came to see Dr Montoya for a second opinion and she was very informative, even provided additional information that my assigned dentist did not mention. However services that are OOP are quite expensive. There’s only one receptionist so it’s understandable why there’s a wait. The staff is incredibly kind and accommodating.

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


Great place to come if you sincerely care about your teeth. Dr. Montoya is friendly and very experienced. Her staff are always organized. This place is super clean and professional. I highly recommend anyone looking for a good quality dentist with affordable prices to come here.

I had an issue and they got me in right away. The front office staff was so courteous and informative. Doctor Montoya was patient and helpful. The procedure was almost painless and so fast! She is a professional. Thank you guys I’m so grateful! ❤️

Tyler S. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am kind of appalled by the comments . I have the biggest fear of the dentist !!!! But choosing and coming to this establishment was worth the fear. Everyone in the office made me feel comfortable , answered all of my questions and walked me through. Not to mention my extraction was fast and painless ! My tooth was all jacked up . I just wanna day thank you . For taking care of me same day I was literally dying .

First of all, I hate going to the Dentist, Doctor, etc. But I started going here when I first moved to LA. And I came here literally because it was 5 sec from my Apt. Their services are top-notch honestly, Always ask for Dr.Montoya, She’s my Fav. I go there every three months for cleaning (Cause of MY Stupid Braces) but Everytime I go, its a breeze and super smooth. She explains to me everything in detail so I can understand. Even had all 4 of my Wisdom teeth pulled, I could do it 10x again, easy. Breeze. A lot of people here are complaining about their prices, the ugly lobby, the crappy chairs, the horrible channels that are on the TV, and how its always cold in there, But this is a Dentist, in fact this is a really good dentist in a Shitty Location. I moved to west-Hollywood and I still go back there every time. I can easily find a “Better” dentist in my area but just like finding a Barber you like coming back every time for the past 5 years you just know. Bottom line if you wanna watch TV @ the dentist stay at home or go to the movies, if you wanna cheaper price go buy the DIY kit at CVS and clean your own teeth, if you wanna sit on silk chairs buy them yourself. But If you want 100% top of the Line Dentistry work done for you or your kids, I would take them here. Thats it. Good bye. If you read this far, I commend you for I am not a grammarian. 🙂

Dr. Montoya has been a god send and I am so incredibly grateful to have found hear so close by. I have brought my entire family here to see Dr. Montoya. She was incredibly gentle and that made me very comfortable. Her office staff was also incredibly professional and worked with me via phone and email to book appointments and were mindful of my time. When I arrived I was able to get seated quickly. I used to dread coming to the dentist and now I am happy when I book an appointment knowing I am getting the best treatment and that my family is too.

I had scheduled an emergency appointment this morning due to a nasty, toothache. Through Zoc Doc, I was able to find an awesome dentist close to my job. This dentist office is absolutely the epitome of clean and super professional. I was a new patient and they treated me like I was a patient for years.

ALL the staff were VERY friendly, and provided information that I needed, without making it seem as if I was a bother. And Dr. Montoya is WONDERFUL! I felt at ease, and well informed about my future dentistry needs and the dental care I will be receiving, which is such a relief after MANY yrs of dealing with the complete opposite.. THANK YOU to all at Dr. Montoya, and ALL at FLORENCE FAMILY DENTISTRY!!! And, I HAVE ALREADY recommended Dr. Montoya to friends and family!

Professional, clean, and quick. Basic cleaning was super fast, but got the job done. Pricing options were explained to me clearly along with what my insurance covered. In and out in a breeze, and parking was pretty decent too.
