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

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


I have had terrible experiences with many dentists and have ignored going for a check up all together for a long time because past dentists have either over charged or the work they would do on my teeth would not make my teeth feel better, but this place is GREAT! I decided to give SmilesLA a chance and loved it. The staff is very welcoming and it feels like you’re with family. My first procedure was a root canal. It was painless and I felt a big difference after. I would definitely recommend this place to someone else. I read past reviews where the dental office wouldn’t call back and scheduling appointments was a pain but I am going on my fifth appointment and haven’t had this experience. It’s been great for me.

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


I’ve been waiting a while to post this review I wanted my treatment to be finished before I did. I will have to say that I was not disappointed Dr. Elyson and all the girls at the office are amazing always attentive and always willing to work with my crazy work schedule but most importantly Dr. Elyson was always looking out and making sure that everything came out the way I wanted with careful planning as well as being honest with me which is rare to find many places treat you like an assembly line and this is definitely not the case here they never rush you nor pressure you to do anything and always look out to make sure you do what is best for you. I don’t really ever take the time to post any reviews but I am beyond pleased with the results of everything I had done!

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


I started my treatment on 9/10/15 under the care of Dr. Michel H. Elyson. Prior to this my last dental visit was about 5 years ago. I never liked going to the dentist. Everything about it scared me. The idea of a stranger having access to my throat didn’t sit too well for me, esply in those cold seats. The wonderful ladies at smiles la changed all that. They are vary professional and friendly. From the greetings to walking me out and everything else in between. I’ve made really great friends with them all. This sounds like a 180 but I really loved my results. My teeth was my worst feature and one that I was most insecure about. Rarely do I ever smile for photos or laugh out loud afraid that they would be seen. Not only do I smile more but my attitude in life has changed. One of the best investment you can make is your smile because it stays with you where ever you go. Special thank you to the amazing Dr. Elyson for his beautiful work. He made the process as painless as possible and he was there to explain every little step. I love my new smile. Another special thank to Angela who was there for me from the beginning. She walked me through all the process and helped me get things done. She got my back from get go. I recommend this dentist office 100% weather it’s for you, your grandparents or kids. Smiles LA has a smile for everyone.

Today I finished my dental treatment – Dr. Michel Elyson gave me the smile I have been wanting that no other dentist could ever deliver. I am extremely thankful for all his wonderful and amazing dental work he provided. Not to mention I am able to smile with confidence. Thank you so much Dr. Elyson, Angela, and the entire team. I am extremely blessed.

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


I was looking for a dentist for the longest time to treat my 17 year old daughter who is dental phobic. I found this dentist on yelp due to their excellent reviews. Not only was the entire staff nice, the treatment my daughter received today was exceptional. From scheduling my dental appointment with the front office Bandi, to the office manager Ángela who gave me all my options. Now where do I start with the dentist. Dr. Michel Elyson is very professional, thorough, and sweet. He explained my daughters treatment to me he would inform me about my daughters progress during treatment, and assured me that my daughter was doing fine during the process. Especially me being extremely nervous about my daughter being sedated. Well I can say my daughter had the best experience she doesn’t remember a thing during her dental visit. I will definitely bring my entire family to Smiles La due to the exceptional service they provided for my daughter. I want to Dr. Elyson and the entire staff. Thank you. Edith.

Emory E. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. E, for a long time.  He has always explained every procedure in detail and gave me several options.  The office staff is very accommodating even though I’m a student, they help and work around my schedule. Every one greets me with a smile.  Their office is very clean and updated.  I have sent my family and friends and with one visit they have come back and told me how impressed they were with the level of treatment they have received.

Monica I. from Turlock, CA (Source: Yelp)


I give this dentist office 5 stars from Dr. Elyson to Front desk Bandi. They are always accomdating our family needs. Angela is always attentive and no pressure on the finacial. Many times weve been helped with appts and seeing us in short notice in urgent matters. If your nervous seeing a dentist this office will make you feel comfortable and excellent patient treatment. Juan &Monica Ibarra.

Alejandra V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Elyson for more than 10 years. He is a talented, highly skilled dentist. I’ve had him work on everything from basic cleanings to root canals, veneers, and invisalign treatment.  On top of that, his staff is warm, welcoming, and professional. They always look for ways to accommodate patient schedules and find affordable options for procedures. When I lived on the East Coast, Texas, and Northern CA I always waited to be back home in East LA to go to Smiles LA. And now that I live in West LA I drive to East LA because of the quality of service. I wouldn’t see anyone else! Thank you Dr. Elyson and Smiles LA team for everything you do for your clients!

Maya F. Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family and i have been going to this office for many years. I always thank them for the outstanding job they do. When I came to this office my teeth were in vary bad shape, they were ably to restore the damage and help me maintain my teeth so i wont need unnecessary dental work. they gave me solutions to help me fight cavities and reduce my dental work. We have found a Dentist that cares about us and not his pocket. Dr. Elyson’s work is not only a work of art, but also affordable.

Diana P. from Montebello, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my visit again.  They moved and have a brand new office.  They have pictures here on yelp. I loved it.  The dental assistants are so helpful and remember me by name.  The dentist understands what I need and fears I had before with another dental office. I have recommended my niece now too and she will be returning.  I really recommend Smiles LA if you are looking for a new dentist.  They really make you feel comfortable.  Wanted to post my pic and couldn’t, sorry.

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


I have been coming here for over 3 years. I was completely terrified of the dentist and in fact cried on my first visit. I did plenty of research on other dentist locations and decided to give Smiles LA a try. I am so happy I did.  I cannot recommend this dentist place enough. The staff makes you so comfortable in fact they make you feel like you have been friends for years. The Drs know exactly what they are doing and are very patient. I was able to get invisalign and I know it was the best decision of my life. Thank you everyone at Smiles LA!

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


I was referred to Smiles La by one of my family members. I was always afraid of the dentist. After meeting Dr. Michel Elyson I felt at ease not only was he sweet, he is so professional and explains all my dental needs in such a manner that made me feel so comfortable. The staff is so nice from the moment you walk in. I brought my whole family to Smiles La. I want to thank the wonderful staff and Dr. for their professionalism and taking care of all my dental needs. You have a patient for life.

Junior M. from Sunnyvale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am glad I was able to locate this place a couple years ago. Since day one, the staff have been amazing. Dr Elyson has worked on my teeth every visit and he is fantastic. Bandi, Angela, Maria and everyone else there are hilarious, welcoming but most of all pleasant to be around. Honestly they are sooooo amazing that when I went on my “work expedition”, I would fly all the way back to Los Angeles for my check ups. That is how good they are.

Priscilla M. from Goleta, CA (Source: Yelp)


I would like to start off this review by sharing how highly impressed i was with not only the work of this dental office but the hospitality as well. the hard work and integrity in this office is very hard to find in other dental offices and i felt very comfortable with everything. from how well dr elyson explained things to the product of his work. i came to dr. michel elyson to see if he could help me w my special case of an implant and he is the first dr of dozens that i confidently felt holds the perfectionism and patience that i am looking for.

Alexander Malus (Source: Facebook)


I finally finished all my dental work after not being able to smile for years. Dr. Michel Elyson fixed all my teeth I’m so thankful for all the dental work he provided on me. I am more confident I’m able to smile and take pictures without hesitation. Thanks to Angela for always helping me with all my appointments and the entire staff always being so comforting. Thanks guys!!!

Crystal N. from Del Mar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Just transferred over to Smiles LA! The staff is great. Family friendly to say the least! It was my son’s first time getting a check up there. The staff greeted him from the door and convinced him he’d be alright to go without mommy. They played a child movie on the tv during his exam and gave him a toy! To get a 3 year old to be excited about his dental exam was impressive! And I appreciated this the most. Also, very fast and attentive with patients. My exam was fast and Dr. did a great assessment. I also needed a minor oral surgery that they got approved through my insurance in an impressive time frame. I’m able to get this work done before returning to work. Staff that go out of their way shows the care they put into their career and profession, it matters. Highly recommended! Clean office as well.

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


I would like to start off by saying this dentistry has the utmost professionalism and world class customer service I have experience at any dental office. I’m sure many people are like me, trying to find a dentist that you trust and can go to. I was looking to have 2 of my left wisdom tooth removed (one surgical and the other an extraction) I called and was immediately provided all the information about the procedure. From the pre-medication to the post recovery steps. We were also able to schedule an appointment that was convenient for me since I work full time. The extraction went perfectly and I was anticipating some pain for the next couple of days but surprisingly, no pain whatsoever! I would highly recommend Smiles LA to any of my family, friends, and co-workers because they took great care of me and I am happy to say that Smiles LA is my permanent dental office now!

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


I’m so happy to have found Smiles La. Dr. Elyson is just awesome. It was important for and my family to find a dentist I can count on. Dr. Elyson and his staff go above and beyond to make my family and I feel at home. The office is super clean, unlike so many others I dread taking my family to. Angela the office manager goes out of her way to help you with all the insurance and financial,  not to mention I didn’t pay anything thanks to Angela when in previous dental offices I would always get charged for procedures we never had done. Kathy, and Sara both are very pleasant and warming and provide excellent service. Bandi is sweet and greets you the moment you walk in. Kind and gentle are just a few words to describe Dr. Elyson. This office is the best. Thanks Smiles La

Bambolina M. from La Mirada, CA (Source: Yelp)


WOW! AMAZING staff. Everyone is EXTREMELY friendly & accommodating. Walked in nervous, thinking I never want to see another dentist in my life. But EVERYONE made me feel welcomed & listened to my needs. Had a root canal with 0 pain. Needless to say they have the BEST dentist & staff in town!!! Forget Western dental or others. Here patients are first not your $$$. THANK YOU SMILES LA for making me feel special.

Desiree B. from Brea, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time here and i fell in love with this place. I heard of Smiles LA through a church member and I wanted to try it out. I  drive all the way from Brea. This office is immaculate clean and the staff is so sweet and comforting. First time meeting Dr.Elyson. what can I say about Dr. Elyson he’s so sweet and professional answered all my dental questions and put me at ease, all I can say is he’s so awesome he even took care of my dental treatment the same day. Not one dentist I have visited in the past has ever done that for me. I cant wait to return for my 6 months check up, I loved the care they provided for me. Thank you Dr. Elyson for your wonderful care, I want to thank the girls at Smiles LA for their kindness. Thank you.

Brianna F. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


This dental office is by far the best one I have received treatment from. The office provides all of the dental services you need! From the moment you walk in you feel welcomed and are attended to. The whole office team is amazing!! Angela, Bandi, Maria, Kathy are all great! Dr. Elyson, who is my primary dentist does the best work! I do not feel anything when receiving treatment, which is always what I look for when choosing a dentist! I was always switching dentists’ because of the pain I was put through, but after coming here for 2 years with treatment being completely painless; I am glad I have found an amazing dentist!

Louie P. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just took my son to Smiles La for the very first time, and felt like I have been with Smiles La for many years. Their staff is outstanding, polite, and friendly. Angela their office manager made all ends meet when it came to my insurance, she treated my son like he was her own. Very kind, sweet and understanding of how to deal with a scared son. Not only did they help get my insurance approved, they also treated my son immediately.  Dr. Michel Elyson did an exceptional job on my son. I will continue to go to this dental office because of the great experience we had with the entire staff. I truly recommend this dental office to anyone. Thank you Smiles La for your dental care.

Victor G. from Pico Rivera, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found this place by coincidence. I was driving to work and saw this place, it appeared to be a new place because I had never seen it before. I called this place to ask what insurances they accepted, fortunately mine was one of them. From speaking to Bandy on the from to walking in and being greeted with a smile from all of the staff. This place already had an A from me. Then I met Dr. Michael Elyson, it was there that I new I had found my new dentist. I had the best dental experience here. Definitely a place I will be recommending to my family and friends.

Esteban V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was reffered here by a family member after having bad experiences at other dental pratices. My frony tooth was in serious need of repair. 1st time client, now a forever loyal client after the great care I recieved, done the same day, thankfully relieving the severe pain after a painless root canal. The praticioners are personable & proffesional, making sure all needs are met. Very knowledgeable, feel free to ask any questions & concerns.

Adolfo H. from Avalon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have always had a fear of the dentist. With hesitation I made my appointment at Smiles LA. The day before my appointment I got a reminder from a very friendly girl, and the day of my appointment I was greeted and assisted by a very kind staff. Overall I had a great experience with the office. Dr. Elyson calmed my fears, and did an excellent job. Looking forward to my next appointment.

A. R. from Ontario, CA (Source: Yelp)


Beyond excellent service from the time you check in to the time you check out. I stopped in for an emergency. I cracked my rear right side upper molar eating a pb&j sandwich .. yeah anyway,  so Angela greets me, gets the x rays done (stat), & I see Dr. Elyson… advised I need a crown. Angela gave me killer price, agreed & signed.  Dr Elyson explained the process started I didn’t feel the needle some grinding , molding and measurements done, popped in the temporary crown and out 45 minutes I say at most. Faster than my dealer can service my car… Thank you Angela, Maria, Bandi, staff and Dr. Elyson.

Maira A. from Downey, CA (Source: Yelp)


All I can say is I wish I can give this office an additional 5 stars.. The office is very clean and as soon as you arrive you get greated with a smile. The staff is very professional from the front desk receptionist to the assistants that ask you questions until you meet the doctor they are all great.  I appreciated how flexible and dedicated everyone is with assistance.  The doctor makes sure that he answer all of your questions before you leave and that always shows that you care about your patients. Finally talking to the office manager made my visit even better. She goes above and beyond with her costumer service . Thank you Smile staff for making me have a awesome experience.

Mak Y. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


HONEST, is the best way to describe this office. I hated going to the dentist because i never knew if the work was truly needed. But when I tried LA Family Dental I saw how from the moment you come in you are treated like family. And the doctor truly cares. I feel very comfortable in their hands and know my teeth are very will taken care of.

Jennifer S. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient for over a year now, by far the best dental office. Bandi the receptionist is so sweet and kind always making sure I don’t forget my appointment and always accommodating me to my schedule and best interest. Angela the treatment coordinator as been amazing with helping me utilize my insurance and always guides me to make the best decisions for my oral health. Maria the dental assistant is is so helpful and always makes me feel very comfortable . Thank you Doctor Elyson for the amazing dental treatment you have provided me with I am so great ful to have found you, now my entire family is a patient now at Smiles La the best dental office.

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


I have been looking for a new dentist for a while now. My last experience with the last dentist wasn’t the best and they dismissed my questions like I should know the answer. I found Smiles LA on Yelp and I’m so happy I did. The staff is so friendly and welcoming. They have you fill out this dental and medical history questionnaire when you first go in. Once I was inside they started my X-rays and Maria finished them up. Maria went over my dental and medical history with me and took notes. Dr Michel H Elyson then came in and introduced himself. He answered all my questions and explained everything so I understood what was going on. Maria walked me to the front desk after so I can set up my next appointment. Her and Angela were so nice and helpful! I will definitely be recommending Dr Michel to my family and friends!

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


I Love this place. I’ve been to many dentist in my time and we all know these dental visits could be sometimes dredding. But with at smiles LA I have NO worries. I know I’m in good care. And I love my painless visits. They make me feel welcome here. So welcome that my whole family gets their teeth taken care of here. This includes my wife and two kids. Michel Elyson does a great job understanding the steps I want to take for a better smile and the staff is awesome in its own. Angela is great as well as bandi the receptionist at the front desk. I’d recommend smiles LA to any FAMILY.

Natalie S. from Bell Gardens, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Elyson is the “go to” dentist in East Los Angeles. I was referred to Smiles LA by a few co workers. First of of all its so nice to walk into this modern dental office with professional and friendly staff. Dr. Elyson’s office makes you want to visit the dentist more often,  his office is immaculate.  I just left the office, and I already can’t wait to go back. Dr. Elyson is on point, professional, thorough, and above all gentle. He made my appointment so pleasant. Thank you Dr. Elyson for your wonderful service and attention. I would also like to thank the entire staff for their care they provide. I can say I found my forever dentist.

Marissa S. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen numerous dentists with bad experiences who always wanted to over charge me for dental procedures I didn’t need. I was referred to Smiles LA through a friend. I scheduled an appointment with Dr. Elyson he was so professional and honest. I must say after being away from a dentist office for 2 yrs I came in expecting the worse. And still after 2 yrs of no treatment I come to find I have no cavities. The staff was great they made me feel comfortable as if I were at home. This made me happy again, being that I haven’t seen an office for so long. I love this place. DR Elyson made me feel so comfortable. I will definitely recommend.

Mario E. from Monterey Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife found this dentist thru Yelp. She came home raving about the place, that I decided to give it a try. She was right, the dentist Michel and his staff have great customer service. My kids feel comfortable going to the dentist and that is big for me. Because kids are honest, if they don’t like someone or something they are quick to tell you. I highly recommend this place to everyone. I have already referred a couple of friends.
