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

Tom N. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best Dentist I’ve ever visited in California! Extremely gentle, cheerful, & professional service -and very important in this scary pandemic time – very strong cleanliness protocols. I didn’t know that such a thing as a dental patient mask exists, but they broke out a fresh new, disposable one and put it on me (covering eyes and nose) before the work began and kept it on throughout. I was afraid to go into a dental office in this day and age; I only went in when I couldn’t stand the pain in my tooth anymore but I am soooo glad that I did, and wish I’d gone in sooner!

Angela L. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


You have no idea how nervous and scared I was to try yet another dentist after having multiple traumatic experiences that caused me to not go back to the dentist for 2.5 years. EVERYONE in this office is so friendly and kind. The best part is how gentle the doctor and the hygienst were to me. This is what I’ve been missing in a dentist. I’m so thankful. They also didn’t make me feel guilty for not seeing a dentist for so long. They not only worked on my teeth and gums, but they also educated me. Yes, we all should know the basics of taking care of our teeth and gums, but I found out some things that I didn’t even know. The explained the procedures and payment in detail and worked with me and my insurance to so I would know exactly what was the insurance would pay and what I would have to pay. I actually look forward to going back to them on a regular basis becuase I feel like they really care and I know that they’ll work with me to help me keep my teeth in optimal condition. THANK YOU DR. LONTOC AND TEAM! Remind me to take pictures with guys the next time I come. 🙂

I have been a patient of Dr. Cecilia Lontoc since she started her practice in Torrance. She is the best. She is very professional, and caring. I referred my friends and relatives to her and they love her, too.

Laura P. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


In my opinion, Dr. Lontoc’s office is going above and beyond to ensure her patient and staff wellbeing during this unprecedented time, Covid-19. Her staff communicated with us in advance the new protocol and when we arrived. We were able to see her even during this closed time due to an emergency dental event. They are amazing!

Haven’t been to the dentist in a while. But the staff at Cecilia Lontoc’s office has been warm and caring to a new patient like me. Got a chance to be helped by Doctor Pham, who was cool enough to explains the entire process while answering my questions. I will be looking forward to returning back to this office real soon!

Noel L. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Lontoc and her staff are the Best! Friendly and accommodating. My daughter was scared to have her loose baby tooth pulled out but the Dr. and the staff talk to her and didn’t rush her to decide but by talking Her, she trusted them and let them pull it out and the best thing is she didn’t feel a thing even without anesthesia. Thank You Dr Lontoc and to your staff

Its very rare to find a dentist that is honest and upfront about procedures, pricing, etc, so finding Dr. Lontoc was truly wonderful. Her staff is always super and both my husband and I had had great experiences everytime we’ve gone for the past 3ish years for different things.

Iris T. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Google)


Dr. Lontoc has been our family dentist for over 25 years! I couldn’t imagine going to any other dentist. She cares genuinely, and have an unmatched professionalism and skills that sets her apart from other dental practitioners. Over time, I have seen her dental office’s gradual improvement in order to keep up with technology. She now applies the latest technology in the dental field. Not only her dental office’s ambiance is soothing, but one could also be assured that each and every staff are professionals and treat patients with an utmost caring. Please make an appointment soon.

Front office is Always professional and answers all of my many questions with a smile and patience. The doctors are always thorough with the explanation of treatment and no up selling. Prices are very reasonable too! I found a good place, I’m very happy! Thanks Dr. Lontoc!!

Dr. Lontoc gets to knows her patients, which to me sounds awesome bc not all doctors care. She is smiley under near all the PPE as well as her staff. Me and my husband moved out to Fontana but still we choose to drive out to Torrance when its our time to for our appointment with Dr. Lontoc. Thank you for your service!

Loi C. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was there last Saturday and people there are so nice! No words can describe how happy I am to find a great dental office. I love how they take care of me specially Rachel and Dr Pham. Thank you so much and see you guys soon!

Everyone is very friendly and professional. Dr. Lontoc is very nice and explained the procedure with me. She is extremely good with the needle. I didn’t feel a thing. I highly recommend this Dentist and dental office.

Noel L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lontoc’s personalized care is top notch. She provides all her clients the BEST experience, Clean, healthy gums and teeth is just an extra reward when you visit her clinic. The staff are competent and respectful to everyone even providing the kids extra favors. Visit her clinic and you’ll thank me later

As always, the best dental office I’ve been to in all my life. Run by a combination of the most experienced, courteous & hard work people ever.

Margaret M. from Lawndale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr.Lontoc and staff are very friendly and professional. No need to look elsewhere, if you do; when return her staff will graciously welcome you back. I could not be more satisfied with the care and service they offer.

Gurgeet Aneja (Source: Facebook)


Can’t thank Dr Lontoc enough. I’ve been coming to Dr Lontoc’s office for several occasions, and have always felt rejuvenated and relived – from scheduled cleanings to dental emergencies Dr Lontoc has always been there for me. Dr Lontoc’s care and compassion far exceeds any other physician’s. Recently, my mom – who’s visiting from overseas had a dental emergency. Dr Lontoc accommodated us the very next morning and took care of it. Even though my mom isn’t her established patient. Thank you Dr Lontoc for making my day, once again. Gurgeet

Ed C. from Chino Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


My family has been loyal patients for more than 20 years now and we kept on coming even though we moved to Chino Hills primarily because of the great service and care afforded to each one of us. Dr Cecilia Lontoc has always been wonderful and extra caring and exactly knows what we need. She is not only our dentist but considered a part of our family. She is surrounded by a great staff of smiling and caring people. You can’t be in a better place for dental care other than Dr. Lontoc’s :-)…

My lower back molar crown came off Thursday July 2 afternoon while eating. I left a message at the dental office and they called the next morning and offered an appointment Monday July 6. Since my appointment on Wednesday had been canceled (rescheduled from April), I was able to see the dentist, get xrays, and the postponed cleaning. I brought the crown with me. The tooth and the crown were intact and the crown was recemented. The entire appointment was pain free 90 minutes. I sm so glad to have Dr. Lontoc! Everyone who works there is like family, so polite and friendly.

Kelly Cram (Source: Google)


I found Dr. Lontoc on Google…she had a lot of excellent reviews so I made an appointment and because of a cancellation, I was able to get an appointment that same day. As soon as I entered her office, I was assisted with some paperwork by a very pleasant staff person. She was totally awesome. When I finished my paper work, I was led into the dental room with the dental assistant who was as kind as the first person I met there. She took exrays and then Dr. Lontoc came in and I thought she was highly knowable and was able to help me. She was just as kind and gentle as her staff. I am supposed to followup with her in a week…at that time, I will make an appointment for a check up and cleaning. I have never written this long of a review but I know how difficult it is to pick a Dentist. If this helps someone trying to find a dentist, it is well worth the effort.

Always a pleasure going to see Dr. Lontoc and her staff. I enjoy getting my teeth cleaned there and for years I would schedule a 3rd cleaning and that cleaning wasn’t even covered by my insurance. Highly recommended dental office.

Michael F. from Lomita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m a new patient that selected Dr. Lontoc’s practice because of the excellent reviews I read on Yelp.  I ended up having two crowns set and I couldn’t be more impressed with everyone at the Dental office. And I mean everyone!  From the staff that greets you when you arrive and schedules appointments, to the technicians and hygienists. Everyone was super nice and a pleasure to deal with. And Dr Lontoc and Dr. Pham are fantastic!  I’m so glad that I found them!

Thuan H. from Kailua-Kona, HI (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lontoc has been taking care of my whole family for more than 10 years.  She is a great dentist, and really care for each and every her patient.  Both of my kids love to see her, they have been going her since they were three year old. Her office is equipped with the latest technology. Her hygienists and staff are friendly. They always tried their best to accommodate our appointment time. My mom, my dad, my kids, my wife and myself are extremely happy with Dr. Lontoc.  We have recommended many of our friends and Co-workers to her.

Erica Shyann M. from Carson, CA (Source: Yelp)


I couldn’t express how great this dental office is. All the staff are kind and have great customer service skills. As soon as you walk through the door you are greeted by several of the staff members; never have i been ignored. Dr. Lontoc is amazing! I always feel comfortable and know they will do an excellent job. I would highly recommend Dr. Lontoc’s office to anyone.

Was a great experience! Had the onborading process been smoother this could be a 5/5. I was referred by my colleague and Dr. Moon and Janice were just fantastic! They were able to document and clean my teeth—only 2 fillings needed after not have been to the dentist in embarrassingly years. The minus 1 star was due to the hidden 20.00 fee for “PPE”. The woman who called to explain that my free visit would cost money also suggested I tie my service animal (puppy) up outside without having gone and asked the dentist. Also the 6 foot rule in their office does not apply in the front as a man was asked to press his body against the wall as I walked by, comical really. The PPE that I paid for was on the keyboard (used) to fill out information but not on the computer mouse ? All in all thank you Dr. Moon—that front desk staff needs some training. I’ll be back for those fillings soon! Thank you Dr. Moon and Janice for making my experience with Cecelia Lontoc nice and smooth.

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


Our family  has been going to Dr. Lontoc’s office for a few years now. The office is clean. Every staff member is always nice & friendly. The most important thing that we’re really impressed with Dr. Lontoc’s office is they are always on schedule. When your appointment is at 2:40pm, you will be seen at 2:40pm…not at 3pm or later like many offices we had been to in the past. We definitely recommend this office.

Dr.Lontoc is the best! Her hands are a gift from God. I have extremely sensitive teeth and I feel absolutely no discomfort during my cleaning. My 3 year old had his first visit with her and he was very anxious. She took the time to build trust with him by playing and counting with him. She was very animated and silly while at the same time teaching him about his visit. She showed him and let him hold the instruments. By the end of the visit, he was her helper and his cleaning was a success. I have been going with Dr.Lontoc for 12 years now, and I definitely recommend her to everyone! She is truly the best!

I hate going to the Dentist, but at Dr. Lontoc’s office I have actually enjoyed getting work done. They are a caring office and willing to help in any way possible to make sure you are comfortable and without pain. They help with the cost and are not just trying to make a dollar, they truly care.

Laura P. from Wilmington, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Lontoc is the most honest general dentist I have ever met; her professionalism, detail of work, and execussion is best to none.  Her staff – dental hygenist and dental assistance – are clear of work being performed and gental and take your anxiety and pain level into account when performing the dental work; specially with toddlers.  The office staff are sweet and detail when it comes to cost and work with you with payments.

Best dental office! Everybody is nice in the office. I am always looking forward to my office visits. The appointments always start on time. The entire staff from front to back are very knowledgeable and make you feel at home.

Jorge Aguilar (Source: Google)


If you want a pleasant dental experience then I would highly recommend visiting the dental office of Cecilia Lontoc. Every staff member is polite and very professional. I have never received any form of poor service. They always explain to you in great detail on what you need, when you need it and how it’s going to happen. They genuinely want to help you.

Anton Y. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was afraid when I showed up for deep cleaning, mostly from prior experiences. I was greeted with a friendly smile, The service was excellent. They were informative, and helped me to feel comfortable. I would recommend this facility to anyone, and everyone.

Dr Lontoc is always patient and explains everything. Her staff is top notch and very efficient. I signed in two minutes before my appointment, sat down for 30 seconds, and was called in to an appointment room. The Lontoc staff takes the stress out of my visits. I’m glad I chose them for my dental needs and health.

Desiree Christophe (Source: Facebook)


Front desk staff very friendly. Always a very clean environment. With this covid, they are following the guidlines. Back room staff, very kind, passionate about their work, always explaining procedures and give feedback on how to improve your oral health.. This is crazy, but I love love getting my teeth cleaned here. Staff always making sure I’m comfortable. And Dr. Lontoc is awesome.

Molly Butler (Source: Google)


Dr. Lontocs office is the only place I will go for my dental care. After a childhood of not knowing the dentist isn’t supposed to cause you pain and the difficulty as an adult to find dental care at an affordable price I’ve found the diamond in the rough!!! I recommend her to all my friends and family. No one leaves crying from pain, scared of the treatment, or feeling financially burdened. Her office staff is great and they will work with you to afford the care you need. I highly recommend her.

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


I am so fortunate that a friend recommended Dr Lontoc’s office over ten years ago!! I have had the best service- even personal time with Dr Lontoc as she consoled me after the loss of my daughter.  Everyone in the office make me feel welcomed and important- and they never forget a name!!!
