Not to be biased but Dr. Mo gives painless shots!! Yes, painless!! He makes sure there’s numbing gel in the area and when he administers the anesthesia it’s slow so you don’t feel it at all. I’ve been to other dental offices and the Dentists will give the shots really quickly and painfully. Clean, modern and tech savvy office. I’ve had the same day CEREC onlay and although it takes a while  it’s one visit and no temporary to worry about. I also had to get a Zirconia crown done which was made by an outside dental lab and it looks and feels just like my natural tooth. Staff is really friendly and will tell you the process along the way so you are aware. Fabulous experience!!

Professional, courteous, and gentle as always. The whole staff makes sure the comfort level for the patient is at the maximum level. Very much appreciated as I am a “dentist coward” and will avoid coming if I worry about the fear factor too much. Not any issues here, though, they know how to make me feel safe and as comfortable as possible at all times. I really appreciate all their efforts, I know it isn’t easy. I always HIGHLY recommend Dr. Mo to all my friends and relatives.

Best team and dentist out there! Dr Mo and his staff are so well trained in dentistry! They have the newest technology and equipment and have the best bedside manner. I went in and had two teeth drilled to almost the nerve (zero pain!), filled with partial crowns (made on the spot!), and out in less than 3 hours!! Who does that?!? Dr Mo! He was always asking how I was doing, letting me know the steps involved, and was just very pleasant and understanding. Floss and brush your teeth folks but if you happen to need dental work then go to Dr Mo

Karen B. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am scared of going to the dentist, but this was the BEST dental visit I ever had….the office is hi-tech and the staff is so friendly and comforting that I forgot where I was. They have a wonderful medspa too so I could get a facial after I got my teeth cleaned. What a great way to get all my beauty work done at the same time. The skin care line they used changed my skin after 3 days…I look younger! I can’t wait to go back!

NEVER had a better dentist. I am a BABY. But finally went in to meet my fate. Yet, I barely felt the needle, and once I was good and numb, had three cavities drilled and filled in less than five minutes. Came back for two more – SAME THING. Now this SHOCKS me because I have literally hit the roof with dentists not giving me enough Novocaine and hitting a nerve with the drill. I sweat and clench my fists. But now I can breathe easy. Thank you SMILEWORKS!!

Kenisha D. from Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I love the dentist. I had tge same dentist for 25yrs before he retired. When I was first referred to Dr. Mo I was excited to try someone different. Dr. Mo is unlike any other dentist Ive been to or heard of. The office is really warm and friendly. The intake is REALLY thorough (questions about your medical history prior to cleaning), but they definitely take care of you here. If you have insurance that they cover, I highly recommend them. However, if you’re like me and don’t have the insurance to cover them, I’d inquire about the $449 one time payment plan (you pay for 3 cleanings and it includes X-rays), otherwise you can end up paying a fortune out of pocket! The office has specials on Zoom whitening and it works! A $600 service cut in half is definitely worth it!

Vance M. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I noticed almost all the negative reviews are due to insurance issues, and I can’t relate to that. Elaine was very careful when I booked my appointment to let me know about how much everything would cost, and to verify my insurance was covered before even coming in for my first visit. Dr. Mohindra and his staff made my exam, cleaning, and fillings an excellent experience. The first thing they did was take pictures inside my mouth, then they showed me my full set of teeth and pointed out exactly where and what was a potential issue – then what should be done to correct it. Sounds simple I know, but that transparency and putting everything in easy-to-understand terms made me feel safe and confident about the work that needed done. The team was extremely friendly and they certainly know their stuff. I home to keep coming here for a long time, and I highly recommend this place to anyone seeking a new dentist!

I am usually not to excited about going to see the dentist. This place makes me feel good. I am impressed by the latest technologies this place uses. No more waiting a few weeks for a permanent crown. It is done on the spot.

Smileworks’ Dr. Mo is one of the few dentists where I can confidently say truly cares about his patients. Almost every dentist I’ve been to tries to push dental procedures and orthodontics and periodontitis, etc. Sometimes, it feels like they’re more of a salesperson than a dentist. Dr. Mo, on the other hand, never tried to push me to get another service. He stuck to the facts and gave me options without trying to sell them to me. The best part? His services are affordable! I just had a root canal and was going to get a crown at a different place. When I asked about how much Smileworks’ same-day crown service was, it was half off compared to the other place! Not only are their services affordable, but Smileworks’ receptionists Julie and Elaine will work with you to get you in as soon as possible and have a full understanding of how insurance works. If you live in Redondo Beach or its surrounding areas, I can full heartedly recommend Dr. Mo and his office

Mustan A. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was impressed with the level of care by Dr. Mo and his staff provided on my very first visit  –  very thorough and super professional.  The dental practice appears to be of a very high calibre –  including state-of-art  equipment, office/clinic facilities, patient  support with insurance, appointments and detailed and full responses to all frequently asked questions

Anonymous from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


WOW! That is really all I can say. I have never had a dentist email me after an appt to see how I was doing!! Dr. Mo you are an awesome Dentist and person I am so thankful you are at Smileworks…it’s the only reason why I came back. Now with you the way you pay attention to your patients I will NEVER go to another dentist again! That goes for my kids as well…we are lifers Dr. Mo!

Dr. Mo is such a caring and wonderful dentist! All of his staff and hygienists are caring and helpful. I have had more work done this year on my teeth than all other years of my life combined. They were helpful, compassionate and u see standing when I had any issues or problem. Love this place!  Thanks Dr. Mo, Eileen, Julie, Jessie, et al.  My mouth, teeth and mental health thank you!

Andrea L. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am joining most of the reviews here with a 5 star rating.  My family and I go to Dr. Mo for 7 1/2 years now.  He takes excellent care of us including my son who is now 24 and has Fragile X Syndrome.  When he had a cavity Dr. Mo took his time and had the patience of a saint.  Sadly we are leaving Redondo Beach for the East Coast.  I am seriously considering flying back a couple times a year to see him.  Also, Elaine who run’s the office is totally on top of things.  If anyone has any issues just contact her directly and she will work through long invoices and EOB’s.  Thank you Dr. Mo and staff – Rock and Roll!

Smileworks has been my dentist for the past 5 years, and I couldn’t be happier. Coming into into Smileworks after my past 3 dentists was like leaving the stone age. Smileworks uses advanced technology and techniques to keep your teeth healthy and looking their best. As an R&D Engineer, even I was impressed. I can always trust their expertise. And the awesome staff from Dr. Mo to Elaine make you feel at home every time you come in. Highly recommended!

If you want to know exactly what is happening with your tooth health, Smileworks is the place! Dr. Mo and his staff are friendly and knowledgable and they work with you through situations. I have been with them going on three years now.

Debra J. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I only have positive things to say about Smileworks. The staff is amazing and Dr. Mo is genuinely caring and an excellent dentist. I first brought in my 5 year old daughter based on a recommendation from a close friend. My daughter had an originating fear of dentists. She’s tried 2 already and unfortunately could not finish the needed work on her teeth (fillings). She was much more comfortable at Smileworks but she still cried (for a long time lol) but the staff was so so patient with her. They were able to do one procedure out of multiple she needed after comforting her. Unfortunately my daughter continued to be uncooperative. The staff recommended us to a pediatric dentist at the end. But they made it so easy by calling them for me, making the appointment, and sending all necessary information including my insurance. I would not hesitate going back or recommending Smileworks to others.

Had a tele-health consultation during the pandemic that went flawlessly. Dr. Mo provided the same high quality service and attention to detail I’ve come to experience in his office over the past 10 years as his patient. Thanks Smileworks!

Paras D. (Source: Zocdoc)


Dr. Mo is awesome. I feel like someone actually cares about my teeth and wants to see what’s happening. As a patient, you want to know that someone wants to see what is happening with you. It might only take a few minutes, but when it’s related to your health, you want to feel good about your experience. When I needed a filling, Dr. Mo used a gel to numb the side of my mouth before using the needle to provide anesthesia. I’ts a really nice touch to make the shot not hurt. None of the other dentists before had me fill the upper outside of my teeth to protect my gums. It’s nothing they push you towards but they’ll show you and give you options on how to keep your teeth strong and protect your gums. I appreciate that. The insurance covers most of it and my out of pocket was really small. I am also a grinder and so after my first mouthguard I wanted to try something different. Dr. Mo designed a mouthguard that just has my front teeth come together. It worked a lot better than the full mouthguard for me. Points again for helping me figure out a better solution! The office staff is awesome and chill – always very friendly and the hygienist is super thorough. I KNOW my mouth is clean when I’m done! Thanks Smileworks. Appreciate the service.

Beena P. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


SmileWorks is totally AWESOME!! If you need a facial or waxing you have to go to DANA!! She is AWESOME! and HILLARIOUS! She is very good at work she does and knows her stuff when it comes to skin care!! As for the denist side of it all they are great as well. I have seen both Dr. LaBounty and Dr.Mo and they are both wonderful.  This has to be the first time EVER that I actually feel asleep getting my cavity filled!! How many people can say that!!

I had a crown break on Sunday. (Office is closed). I am traveling tomorrow (Monday) to Texas at 6am. I called Dr. Mo on his after hours line. I left a voicemail asking for him to tell me what my options were. Dr. Mo asked me to send him a photo of the crown and tooth hole over cellphones. He gave me a basic prognosis and told me to meet him at his office at 2pm. I brought my 6 year old and 4 year old (both who are patients) and they played with his kids(which he took time away from to help me) Dr. Mo temporarily put my crown back in to allow me to travel and have a complete smile. I will return on Friday to have a more serious repair done. I recommend Dr. Mo to anyone who wants their life changed forever!

I arrived at the office and was welcomed warmly by the front office staff/treatment coordinator Elaine. She guided me through the necessary paperwork on a laptop (cool!) as opposed to filling out tons of paperwork….Both Dr Mo and his assistant Richard were courteous and professional – always making sure I knew what was going on. Dr Mo guided me through my mouth, letting me know what he saw that needed work and giving me choices based on my finances, time etc. I ended up having three fillings and a cleaning. They used a bite block which was infinitely more comfortable and assisted in helping me keep my mouth open (I have never used one at other dentist offices). Dr Mo made sure I was comfortable and properly numbed before any work was done – both put my comfort above their time schedule etc. Phuong was the hygienist and she was very bubbly and personable which helped the cleaning go quickly. She was very thorough and again, let me know what she was doing every step of the way. Overall a very positive experience. I am happy with my decision to visit Smileworks of Redondo Beach and I will definitely go back.

Great dentist and staff! Dr. Mo is kind, smart, and honest. He explains everything! I have never had a dentist take pictures of my teeth and sit there to go through each and every one of them with me. He has a gentle touch and is trustworthy. He instantly put me at ease with his congeniality and charm. Jesse, the hygienist, had a very gentle touch and was so careful not to hurt my gums with the scraper. The staff is pleasant and competent. I have always dreaded going to the dentist, but not anymore! Thanks so much Smileworks!

Deb M. from Norwalk, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great place all around, not only do they have the latest in technology to assist in their treatment of your teeth, the entire staff are professional, helpful, and unfailingly kind. As a big baby around the dentist I can tell you that I am probably a very challenging patient but the staff manages to make me feel welcome and safe each visit. If I didn’t feel that way, I can assure you I would just not go. I’m also challenging from a “teeth” standpoint as I’ve always had bad teeth. That forced me to have to go to the dentist a lot as a kid and that started a vicious cycle of scary, painful dental visits and then me avoiding the dentist till something catastrophic happened. Rinse, lather, repeat. In a way I feel bad that I didn’t meet this practice sooner, but I am grateful that I’ve known them now for 10 years and that they continue to treat me as a valued part of their dental family. Even though I know I’m a pain! If you have large or small dental needs, I highly recommend you check this place out. In fact, I would not recommend ANY other dental office besides Dr. Mo and staff for detailed, thorough, and expert dental care. Each visit is marked with Dr. Mo going carefully over what needs to be done and then answering any questions you might have. He puts everything into easy to understand terms so that it doesn’t overwhelm, and wherever possible gives the patient options to choose from. Above all else, he (nor the rest of the staff) will do their best to keep you comfortable and relaxed during your entire visit. Try them and see what you think

Aileen A. from Hawthorne, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff is very friendly.  Elaine was very helpful.  Dr. Mo was informative.  He explained everything.  My son had 2 cavities.  They kept my 8 year old son comfortable throughout the whole process

Sheri E. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Mo for at least 2 years now and he has been a LIFE SAVER for me!! I’m the type that runs the other way in complete stress and sweat if I have to go to the dentist. Dr. Mo and Elaine have made it an easy going process for me to actually show up and not be as frightened!! Thank you Dr Mo from the bottom of my’s probably because of yourself and Elaine that I haven’t ended up in the hospital with my teeth the ware they were…I will follow you to any location that you may end up at whether you like it or not 😉

Shaila C. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I live in Santa Monica but I drive to Redondo Beach for my dental care because Smileworks was highly recommended by a close friend.  I have had one traumatic dental experience in the past and have also been disappointed by a couple dentists who I felt were pushing unnecessary procedures, so I am very careful when selecting a dentist.  I have visited Smileworks twice (December 2016 and July 2017) and had check-ups, cleanings, x-rays, and one filling.  Phuong, one of the dental hygienists, did my cleaning in July 2017 and was very thorough.  She also gave me some excellent tips and advice on caring for my teeth.  Dr. Mo is a highly skilled dentist with an outstanding bedside manner.  He will happily address all questions and concerns.  He does not push unnecessary work or additional services.  When I had my filling done in July 2017, Dr. Mo and his staff went above and beyond to make sure I was comfortable and pain free.  They sensed that I was a bit nervous and did everything they could to calm my jittery nerves.  I will happily continue slogging down the 405 on Saturday mornings for my dental care

I been seeing Dr Mo for over five years. He is personable, knowledgeable, skillful, gentle, and is a wonderful dentist. The support staff is responsive and helpful. I came her from a referal by a friend and am so happy that I did. I highly recomend Smileworks

Have been going to Smileworks for over 20 years, they are great. Dr Mo and his staff are efficient and painless. My two Kidds who have now moved out and live over an hour away, drive the extra distance to have their teeth cleaned and checked

Myron A. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Mo is the best Dentist I have ever been to. His equipment, technology and is the best. I highly recommend Dr. Mo at Smile works in Redondo Beach for any and all dental work you need. His staff is also very dedicated and professional. I have been a satisfied customer for over 10 years now. Even after moving I still make the comute to his office because.

My veneer of 10 years chipped and exposed my tooth underneath and was extra sensitive and painful. I was dreading going to my old dentist which I would regularly have to sit in a hospital type waiting room with about 20 other people. I work In Redondo Beach so I wanted to find A Good Honest Denstist that was hassle free. SmileWorks had great reviews online and was easy to schedule an appointment online the night before, I received a friendly confirmation the morning of my appointment by a friendly receptionist that explained everything in great detail. When I arrived I was greeted and was pleasantly surprised to be the only person in the waiting room. Nice clean office, well maintained   they had snacks , coffee and water for patients. In a few minutes I was greeted by Dr Mo’s assistance who took me to next room to go over my concerns and reason for my visit(CHIPPED VENEER). They did not try to up sale me anything and respected the reason for my visit. Dr Mo was great at explaining that they have CEREC Tecnology which scans and molds your permanent porcelain veneer all on the same day. Dr Mo and his staff was transparent and provided me pricing for the work to be done before starting anything, I have Great insurance that equates to great pricing and ended up getting a second tooth getting repaired  at an affordable price. The work was done efficiently,painlessly, and very professionally, my teeth were fixed and looked flawless within a few hours. I HIGHLY recommend  Dr Mo, Smileworks and the entire staff, I am happy to say I have found my New Dentist and will be coming back for X rays and a deep cleaning. THANK YOU Dr Mo and Staff for such a great experience

I have been going to Smileworks of RB for 6 years. I actually love going to the dentist because of all of them! And believe me prior to that my mouth hadn’t seen a dentist in years

Speedy service and super friendly, professional, knowledgeable Doctors and team. Smile works team was able to accommodate us for a same day dental emergency. They were also very diligent in explaining the estimates for each procedure. Would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a dentist!

Suzie E. from Marina Del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ankur Mohindra has the best bed side manners. You can’t even feel when he is injecting you. I highly recommend a visit if you care about your teeth

Tina M. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Smileworks is a great office! I mean no one LOVES to go to the dentist, but they are a great group.  The staff is very friendly and will work with your schedule.  I went to get a routine cleaning and found Dr. Mohindra to be very friendly and knowledgeable. He explained everything to me thoroughly and took time to understand my concerns.  Also as an added bonus, the office is so high tech and has a very modern look/feel to it! Everything is computerized/digital! I was able to see my teeth in great detail (on a computer screen in front of me when on the chair) and see where cavities were beginning to form! I will plan to go back in 6mos for another regular check-up and to get some of those cavities filled! Keep up the great work Smileworks!!
