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

Suzanne H. from West Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Susan and her team went above and beyond the call of duty. I’ve had the best dental experience of my life! Dr. Susan is an incredible human being, too, in addition to her expertise. She called me at home after my treatment to hear how I was doing, and even sent me a Happy Birthday email. They are so detail-oriented, even down to playing the best background music for the patient’s comfort, exceptionally friendly, and very personable. God answered my prayers in finding a great dentist in my area. Patient, Suzanne H.

Katherine S. from Bell Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks and her staff are wonderful. Anew, her dental hygienist, concentrates on the patient, not the world around her. She was able to remove built up stains my previous hygienist seemed to ignore. She also has a sweet receptionist, Jackie! There is a fun vibe throughout the office making a visit to the dentist easy to endure. I highly recommend this team of skilled professionals!

Priscilla E. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Her’s is the place to go to if you are looking for a dentist who not only is experienced and surpasses expectations, but she is also an architect of change, a symbol of hope, and a leader in multiple and diverse communities. I have witnessed the personal connections she makes with patients of all backgrounds and students at UCLA. She is very caring, respectful, and never fails to provide advice on how to improve your oral health. She is on the faculty at UCLA School of Dentistry, so be assured that you will be provided with the most innovative care, while mixed in with her positive/ upbeat, fun and professional attitude.  If you are ready for a wonderful experience, a dentist who is efficient yet provides quality care, visit her office, she will not disappoint.

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


Dr. Fredricks and staff are simply amazing. I’m very particular when it comes dentistry, it can be very expensive and I like to be assured I’m getting quality service. After my first couple of visits I can honestly say, this office has provided one of my best dental experiences in the past three years. Firstly, she is very energetic, incredibly friendly and her staff follows suit. When picking a dentist, positive energy is not something I typically look for, but in this case I was pleasantly surprised(you will see what I mean). More importantly, I appreciate her scheduling an appointment beyond my work hours, I was not inconvenienced with missing work and attempting to function with a numb mouth all day. More specifically, she replaced a crown that my previous dentist failed to properly secure on multiple attempts$$$. Although, my last dentist of 15 years was experienced, it was always a rush to get my procedure done and to get my insurance billed. With Dr. Fredericks and her dental assistant, I noticed more attention to detail, thoroughness and a sincere evaluation of my dental needs. I now have my new crown, it’s better fitting and I’m confident that it will remain a part of my smile for many years to come

I have never written a review on Yelp before, but felt compelled to do so after i read a couple of negative reviews about Dr. Fredericks and her office staff.  Since most of the reviews are 5 star could it be that the negative reviews are because of the patient and not the office? Ten years ago I moved into the area as was looking to find a new dentist.  I started calling around and couldn’t find anyone I wanted to go to.  This was because I go by first impressions and that is the receptionist.  Then I called Dr. Fredericks office and was greeted by Susan, the office manager.  I knew right away that this was the doctor I wanted to start going to!  Susan was so friendly and very helpful.  I have been going there ever since.  Dr. Fredericks is funny, kind and an amazing dentist.  She has always squeezed me in whenever I have had an emergency, as well as calling to check on me herself after any involved procedure.  Dr. Fredericks schedule is very accommodating for people like myself who have difficulty coming in on a weekday.  She is available some evenings as well as Saturdays. I cannot say enough about Dr. Fredericks and her office staff.  I will be a lifelong patient and I feel so blessed that I found her all those years ago.

Dana L. from Calabasas, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks and her staff are absolutely wonderful. Not only is Dr. Fredericks gifted with wonderful hand skills and touch, she truly listens to her patients’ concerns.  Dr. Fredericks is patient, understanding and tremendously knowledgeable. Both the front and back office staff are efficient, friendly and such a joy to interact with. The office decor is inviting and the operatories are pristine. A great dental experience every time.  I cannot say enough!

Emily P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had not been to the dentist for many years and I knew I had dental problems.  I have always been terrified of going to the dentist.  Starting treatment with a new dentist was even scarier to me. I was recommended Dr. Fredericks during my Public Health class at UCLA and I decided to give her a try.  I spoke to her about my fears prior to starting treatment and she prescribed an anti-anxiety medication for me to keep me calm prior to my dental appointment. My fiancée had to drive me to my appointment, since I was sedated.  When I arrived I was still very afraid and nervous and I remember screaming in anticipation of the fear.  Dr Fredericks also gave me a local anesthetic because I needed deep cleanings for my teeth.  I was shocked because my experience was unlike I had anything like before. First of all, in the past, my old dentist told me to keep my mouth open while he worked inside my mouth and then it got tiring keeping my mouth open for long and then having to spit out the accumulated saliva. On the other hand, Dr. Fredericks used a mouth guard to keep my mouth open, which was so much comfortable and the DA suctioned my mouth as Dr. Fredericks worked on my teeth.  The procedure went very well, with very little discomfort. She was very patient and made me feel relaxed and comfortable. I was so happy and relieved to finally have clean teeth and healthy gums in half of my mouth that I could not wait for my next appointment!   The next time I came in, I drove myself! That’s how comfortable I felt knowing she will be the one  doing my teeth; I did not take any medication.  We completed the treatment and this time I did not scream but felt very relaxed while she worked on my teeth. Dr Fredericks was very positive, supportive, caring and efficient.  I have been to many dentists and never had such a good experience.  Her office manager and staff, especially Susan, was very polite, friendly, humorous and great to deal with. They made me feel very welcomed and valued. I give her entire office high marks. Thank you all!

Katherine Mori B. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Fredericks is the best. She fixed my entire mouth of teeth by replacing them all with an all on four procedure, and copied my original shaped teeth and matched the color exactly. Dr Fredericks is a warm and compassionate person who makes you feel at ease which is amazing for me to say since I have had the worst fear of dentists since I was just a child. She is genuinely gentle and caring. I now recommend her to others especially those who have the same fears I used to have. I now love my dentist and you will too

Rosalie M. from Frazier Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m fussy about my teeth. My dad and two of my brothers are dentists in the Midwest, and they got me used to top-of-the-line dental care, which is why I’ve been wandering around SoCal, stumbling across the other kind.for the past year and a half. FINALLY I found Dr. Fredericks and her office. You’ll know what I mean when I say the place is as good as my dad’s and my brothers’ practices — excellent dental care with cheerful, knowledgeable, and helpful staff. I know just enough about dentistry to know when things are being done properly. Another plus for me — may not mean anything to you — is that Dr. Fredericks contributes her skills almost every Friday to a free dental clinic. And the last point? I drive 3 hours’ roundtrip to get there. So, yeah, I recommend them highly.

Noelle J. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


Even after moving over 300 miles away, I will only come back to Doctor Susan Frederick and team. They really truly care about their patients and SHE IS HONEST!!!! I have had multiple past experiences with OTHER dentists who after a while become hungry and bored with their profession and thus becoming less honest. NOT WITH DOCTOR SUSAN FREDERICK!! She is the best in the business; myself and my three family members will only be coming back to her and her team. THE BEST!!!! Sincerely, a truly happy patient.

Sandy C. from Canoga Park, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Fredericks Office is by far one of the best dental office anyone can decide to go to. The staff is so welcoming and makes you feel like family. From when you are greeted by Stephanie in the front office who is always so pleasant to greet me and help me with anything I need. She helps me with my appointments and is always so sweet. Anu is so sweet and gentle too, Stephanie already knows to do my appointments with Anu. It’s always a pleasure coming for my check ups , everyone here makes you feel so welcomed. Thank you to all the staff at Dr Fredericks Office for making my experience so pleasant. Also thank you for the birthday email, did not expect that at all. Just another reason why I love the staff here.

Doctor A. fom Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


“It takes one to know one”.  I am a retired dentist who was in practice for forty four years in the San Fernando Valley.  Due to this lengthy period of being in private practice most of my personally known colleagues have also retired.  Therefore, I recently found it necessary  to find a new dentist to retreat an old crown that was failing.  Because of this, I found myself empathizing  with those patients who find themselves in the need of finding a caring and highly skilled dentist. Well, look no further.  My procedure was a difficult one (I should know), and I discussed with a few potential new dentists as to how they would treat my situation. After a short discussion with Dr. Fredericks I knew that she and I were in sync, and I made an appointment.  I am thrilled to be able to state that she is exceptionally skilled, treats conservatively, has a great bedside manner, and of most importance is painless. It is quite apparent that Dr. Fredericks loves our profession, and wants to share her knowledge by being a part time instructor at U.C.L.A.’s school of dentistry. In addition to the high regard that I have developed for Dr. Fredericks, I want to compliment her staff.  They are extremely professional, and make you feel most comfortable from the moment you enter the office.  The  entire staff works as an efficient team, and because of this your treatment time quickly flies by. So yes, I have found a new dentist for myself as well as for my son and daughter-in-law. Therefore, it is only obvious that I feel quite comfortable in recommending Dr. Fredericks to anyone who desires quality dentistry performed in a most caring environment.

Caleb D. from Encino, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


After waiting over 6 years to go back to a dentist, I was nervous going in. My past experiences had been dreadful to the point that I figured it would inescapably be that way no matter where I went. But (thanks to Susan and her staff) it didn’t take me long to realize that I was mistaken. Everyone here is kind and considerate – even the other patients I’ve met so far. Their work is great and pretty quick, too. They even go out of their way to make sure all insurance and payment information is straight-forward (not to mention they helped me find a good oral surgeon who takes my insurance for wisdom teeth removal). All in all, you can’t go wrong here. I plan to remain a patient here for as long as I live anywhere in the general area. Thanks for everything, Susan!

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


I rarely write reviews, but I am really just blown away by my entire experience here.  First of all, Doctor Fredericks (Susan) is the best dentist that I have ever been to.  That has to be said right off the bat. SHE IS AMAZING!!! I’m pretty sure most of us dread going to the dentist and I’m so glad that the entire office just has their stuff together.  I can’t begin to tell you how I have hated every single dentist I’ve ever gone to.   When I first arrived, I was greeted by front-desk Susan (not to be confused with Doctor Susan). Office Manager/Front-desk Susan is extremely professional, kind, and caring. Exactly the type of person you want to talk to right before seeing the dentist. Especially if you are nervous!  She is just awesome. When I went into my first visit, Doctor Fredericks started a plan on how to get me to where I need to be with my overall dental hygiene health. I had a major root canal done and I could barely feel the needle.  Doctor Fredericks actually cares about your pain and is aware that you are a human being that just might be uncomfortable. Becky went over the numbers with me and was very clear about the cost.   I FINALLY found my dentist and I’m so happy and relieved. I highly recommend Doctor Fredericks. The overall cost isn’t super cheap, but since when is dental work cheap?  It’s also not too expensive.  Just know that your teeth are a part of you, and it’s in your best interest to take care of yourself. At least, that’s what I tell myself each time I improve my dental health while paying the visit bill. It’s 100% worth it.  Thank you so much Doctor Fredericks. You and your staff are amazing. Don’t ever change.

Gillian H. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks is a talented professional, and a fabulous lady as well. She runs a top-tier office staff that is very attentive and skilled.  I do not give away 5 stars very often, but this review is well-deserved.  She has fixed both my kids’ teeth with beautiful bonding that another dentist in the area couldn’t resolve successfully, and very reasonable on the price! She also repaired a cavity that my previous dentist had not even noticed needed fixing – and the tooth was starting to decay. Everything from the beautiful view from the dentist chair, to the warmth and politeness of her team, this is the place to go for all your dental needs. My orthodontist recommended her and I know why.  Thank you!

Cheryl C. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Fredericks for 15 years. I found her when I worked in Woodland Hills and her location was convenient.  I switched jobs and moved further away more than 10 years ago, but I continue to drive almost an hour (sometimes longer with traffic) because I trust her and she does great work!  I usually see Anu for cleanings who is fantastic too! Thankfully, I have not needed a lot of dental work, so when Dr. Fredericks tells me I need something done, I completely trust she has my best interest at heart. She works with my insurance and I have not had any discrepancies or problems with this. Her office is always very busy (which I think is a good thing), but not so busy that I feel like I am not getting exceptional service.

P. N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very impressed! To begin with, what a nice front staff…Susan is her name as well, she’s been there apparently for over 16 years. You get the feeling that everyone in that office not only enjoys their job but goes out of his or her way to make you feel at ease. As for the actual visit, from the dental assistant to the hygienist it was swift, comfortable (as a dental visit can get, but the best I’ve had in the 25+ years I’ve been going) and gentle. I was asked every few minutes if I was doing well or felt any pain. Certainly an advanced office using state-of-art equipment. The doctor is extremely friendly and honest. In the past I have been to dentists that suggest that I look into different procedures etc whereas Dr. Fredericks kept her feedback clear and frank. She even left me a follow-up voice-mail with a personal note/message. I refer anyone, even if it’s a bit of a drive…figure it’s worth it for only twice a year! The office also had ran all my health insurance information beforehand so it saved the waiting game and I was taken in within 5 minutes.

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


Dr Fredrick’s has been my dentist since 1997. 19 years for those who have a math phobia. She and her staff are always attentive and have kept my teeth and gums looking great. I can still eat corn, and for that, I am thankful! Just so you know, the shots one receives here do not hurt, she pre numbs her patients so pain is totally minimal! So, keep smiling and call Dr Fredrick’s and say hey! to Susan. She’s the nice lady at the front desk. Anu- best dental hygienist ever, kind, gentle and considerate.

Vladimir S. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist is not something you are looking forward to. But when you come to Dr. Fredericks office you are well taking care of by the personnel that make your visit a pleasant experience. Dr. Fredericks is warm, friendly, and experienced professional and treats you as a member of her family. Go visit Dr. Fredericks and you’ll be in good hands.

Barbara S. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a dental emergency on Friday (when the office is closed) and left a message for Dr. Fredericks. Within the hour she texted me back and an hour later we met at the office where she quickly and efficiently fixed the problem. Great dentist, awesome staff, friendly environment. I’ve been a patient here since Dr. Fredericks began her practice in this office and over the years have referred friends and family.

Toni S. from Studio City, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks and her staff are fabulous!!!  I have been seeing Dr. Fredericks for over 15 years and I have never been less than satisfied.  Although I miss her long-time office manager Susan, Jackie has quickly stepped in to fill her shoes and has continued to provide professionalism at the front desk.  All of the hygienists are super friendly and thorough, and Dr. Fredericks provides unparalleled cosmetic and reparative services. My entire family uses Dr. Fredericks and we are all extremely satisfied.

Pam S. from Thousand Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks makes going to the dentist so easy!!  She is so personable and everyone in her office is so friendly as well!!  Each time I leave her office I think how lucky I am to have such a great dentist!  Susan at the front desk is always so up beat and helpful 🙂  This is so refreshing in this day and age.   I want to give Dr. Fredericks a BIG SHOUT OUT for always being the most caring, professional, friendly, and skilled dentist when we need it the most!!   THANK YOU! I can’t forget to mention her assistants.  The Best!

Laura W. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks was highly recommended, and now that I’ve been to her office, I completely understand why.  Her entire staff is so warm and friendly that they put me at ease right away.  Dr. Fredericks is equally as kind and caring.  I had to have some minor work done, and Dr. Fredericks explained what she was going to do, and put my mind at ease that it would be a painless procedure.  And it was!  She worked quickly and it was over before I knew it.  I’m now one of her patients who also highly recommends Dr. Fredericks.  Especially if you have a fear of going to the dentist. She’s wonderful!

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


I have been going to Dr. Fredericks for over ten years. She is an outstanding professional and her staff is equally superb. As one example, very recently, I fractured my front tooth and needed to have a replacement within two days (as I was going out of town on a business trip). She was able to arrange with her staff to get the replacement made in the outside laboratory. on an expedited basis, and then she put the replacement in within that very short time period. Wow!!!

Odelia B. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start this review off by saying my five star rating does not come lightly. I have had my fair share of dentist visits and have hated every single experience before Dr.Fredericks. Due to an enamel defect, I have grown up extremely self conscious of my teeth. After I graduated high school, my parents and grandpa (who is a retired dentist) accompanied me on my mission to find a dentist to correct my teeth. I have researched and witnessed the work of poorly done veneers and was sure to be extremely picky with who does mine. After multiple visits to different offices, I came to Dr. Fredericks and immediately knew she was my match. Not only were her prices great, but she made me feel comfortable (which is a huge thing for me) and excited for my new smile. I was beyond happy with her work and receive compliments on my smile daily. She is so accommodating to my needs and manages to take me in for an appointment right away if necessary. For once I look forward to going to the dentist and have no anxiety about my visits. Go to her, you won’t regret it! Oh, and Susan the receptionist is professional and kind too!

Irene I. from Napa, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Fredericks for over 10 years and my husband and two children have been as well.  Susan runs a great dental office, from the hygienist to the assistants to the receptionist to the person that handles billing.  Her hours are very flexible, and I’ve been in on more than on occasion on a Saturday.  Two years ago I moved to Northern California, and I still travel to the LA-area to see her. Last week I was travelling to LA, but not for dental care.  The morning I was leaving, one of my old crowns came off after flossing.  I arrived in town on a Saturday that the office was closed.  I texted her (the answering service gives out her personal mobile phone number!) and told her what happened.  She was across town but said she would be passing through the area of the office around 6pm and would meet me at the office if it worked for me.  We ended up meeting at the office and she reattached my crown.  I have come to expect great service, but that took the cake! If they had six stars I would give Susan a 6-star review.

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


Dr. Susan Fredericks is a wonderful dentist.  I am so impressed by her entire office.  The staff is so sweet and extremely knowledgeable.  I am one to ask a lot of questions.  They took the time to sit and answer all my questions and discuss my options.  Dr. Fredericks is so professional, and made me feel at ease.  She has so many years of experience, and you could tell by how efficiently she moved.  She works with great care, ensuring everything is perfect.  It didn’t even hurt.  That was the best part.  I have been talking about her to all of my friends and family, because she is so amazing at what she does.  Thank you Dr. Fredericks

Martin D. from El Dorado Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Fredericks for 12 years now and she is without a doubt the best dentist in California. Nine years ago, I moved to San Diego, but I still drive through the traffic to see Dr. Fredericks several times a year because I trust her completely to take good care of me. I had a below average smile before I started to see Dr. Fredericks, but Dr. Fredericks completely transformed my teeth and smile; her artistry is unmatched. I now have beautiful teeth and a fantastic smile that I am very proud of and that’s because of Dr. Fredericks. But it doesn’t stop there, Dr. Fredericks’ staff members are incredible too; I am talking world class service. Susan and Becky (Staff members) are always helpful with appointments and insurance issues. Susan always calls me to remind me of my appointments 3 or 4 days ahead of time. If I ever move to another part of the country, I will still fly back for my dentistry work to see Dr. Frederick because she is that good. Plain and simple, Dr. Fredericks is the only dentist I will see for the rest of my life; she’s the best.

Laine L. from Northridge, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Fredericks for years. She is very thorough and professional in her work, and I have recommended her to other satisfied patients as well. From day one she mapped out a dental care plan based on my responses to what was important to me and how much time/money I wanted to commit to in relation to cosmetic dentistry. Her staff is very friendly and attentive as well! Susan, the office manager, has a sparkling personality! : )

Lorena A. from West Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


After having such a bad experience at the previous dental office,  I was so happy to have found this amazing practice. Everyone at this office is kind and professional. Stephanie in the front office is so helpful,  and pleasant, she always goes above and beyond to accommodate every request, I can be needy at times but she always makes me feel so welcomed. Anu the oral hygienist is amazing, she’s super gentle and doesn’t make me feel like I’m in trouble for having tar and build up. She gives me good tips on how to keep my teeth clean in between visits. Dr.  Fredrick’s is patient, and knowledgeable.  I trust her with her guidance and makes me feel that she is always in my best interest. Jackie and Maria are always super sweet and thoughtful, anytime I visit they make me feel like family,  and everyone is always so happy and welcoming. Thank you to the entire practice,  I’m so grateful to have found this great group!

Kate G. from Sherman Oaks, CA (Source: Yelp)


I should start by saying – If you look at my other reviews, you see another dental office on there, so this comes from previous experience.   What can I say?  I hate teeth cleanings, and yet have managed to find an office where they make them as pleasant of an experience as possible.   Right from the get go the Office Manager, Susan, is a delight.  She works with you if you do not have insurance, she calls you the day before your appointment to remind you and she is just generally happy to be alive.  TOTALLY great energy to walk into the office (I wish more businesses understood how vital this portion of the experience is).   Anu is the hygienist that works on my teeth but, get this, she is actually a dentist!  So, you’re getting your teeth cleaned by someone that already knows everything about your teeth.  She has really calm energy, makes 100% certain that you feel comfortable and ASKS YOU what you are comfortable with her doing.  I had a bad wreck in 2012 when I first started coming to their offices and preferred that I not have x-rays on my teeth at that visit due to so many x-rays that year.  They didn’t push me and Anu just said, “Ok no problem.  We can do them when you’re ready.”  WHAT?! I GET TO DECIDE?!  I instantly knew this was the office for me.   When Dr. Fredricks gets to you, she is reading x-rays, cracking jokes and truly listening to what you have going on.  She isn’t a spend 5 minutes and leave you kind of dentist.   OH and I cannot gush over how clean these offices are enough.  They are SOOOO clean!!!  Not being sexist, but this office is run by all women and it just makes a difference.  Sorry, boys.  🙂 I do not have dental insurance, so my experiences have been a bit different than other reviewers.  But I am shocked to read that other employees have been rude to patients.  I’m not here to judge anyone’s experience, but I find that really difficult to wrap my head around because my experience has been night and day from that.  Highly recommend this dentist and staff!

Melissa P. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am relieved to finally have a quality, experienced and professional dentist in LA.  Choosing health care providers is stressful in a large city like this – fortunately, Dr. Fredericks came with a glowing recommendation so, I thought I would give her office a try.  Within moments of walking into her lobby and interacting with her office support, I was sold.  Because it’s been quite awhile since I’ve been to the dentist, I’ve had to visit a couple of times to get everything in order.  Under Dr. Fredericks advice, I had to have a deep cavity repaired and I found that her work is meticulous and technique superb.  She is thorough but quick.  During the procedure she was sensitive to pain and openly communicated the work being performed.  In a nutshell, she is super attentive, matter of fact and sings along really well to the great music that plays in her office.   I highly recommend Southern Cal Smiles to anyone looking for a solid dental practice.  The office is in Woodland Hills and regardless of where you may live, it’s worth it when you trust your dentist.  Parking is easy and most all insurance is accepted.  I actually look forward to returning to her office in another couple of weeks.

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


I have been a patient for over 25 years and my two children have been her patient for the last 20 years.  Staff is friendly, professional, caring, understanding and flexible.  My son is special needs and Dr. Fredericks is patient and understanding to his needs and works to make sure  his visit is as comfortable as possible.  I read the reviews from some past patients stating Dr. Fredericks just whizzes in while staff perform most of the work but that is in every dental office.  Dr. Fredericks always sees the patient and the best thing about her is she gives you options.  Previous Dr.’s have just given me the most expensive option and I found out later I could of had other options.  She is also the most educated top Dentist from UCLA.

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


I usually don’t write Yelp reviews but Dr. Fredericks is amazing! I grew up hating my dental experiences and she has completely changed that. She is thorough and trustworthy. Anytime I have a toothache or any kind of emergency she makes sure to get me in there the same day. She also has great relationships in the dental industry, which is great in case you need an emergency root canal -like I’ve needed many times! Not only does she know what she’s doing, but she has a great eye for design. I chipped my front tooth and after seeing her, it looks better than it ever has! Oh, and she’s hilarious! I feel comfortable to talk to her about anything. Susan at the front desk is a cutie pie as well! 🙂

Shaun G. from Irvine, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Fredericks was recommended by a co-worker, and despite being a little far from my home (downtown L.A.) I went there for 2 years.  Dr. Fredericks and her staff are very polite and professional, and while I feel confident about the level of technology they use in their treatments, I don’t feel that they try to sell or push the use of technology that many other dentists seem to do.  I hadn’t been to a dentist for about a year and had to get some fillings done.  They did a great job of working with my schedule and insurance/health savings plan to get the work done.  Dr. Fredericks also had some concerns about my perio health, so she recommended a deeper cleaning and more frequent check-ups to monitor the condition.  At my next checkup, all was good and I was back on track for excellent dental health. Unfortunately, I had to change dentists due to a new job and move to South Orange County.  I was shocked when my new dentist told me I needed fillings and perio-treatment totaling almost $4000!  It was only 6 months since my last visit, so I knew something wasn’t right.  I called Dr. Fredericks to get a consultation and she was able to accommodate me on a Saturday.  I made the nearly 2 hour trip, and I’m glad I did.  Dr. Fredericks conducted the examination herself and informed me everything was fine, there were just a couple things I needed to monitor and stay with regular check-ups to prevent issues.  Dr. Fredericks gave me an honest evaluation that put me at ease, if my insurance covered it I would stay put and continue to make the trip up.  I would definitely recommend Dr. Fredericks to anyone looking for a dentist in the area, it’s worth the trip for top-notch, honest treatment!

Most Fridays I volunteer at a free dental clinic in Pacoima, the MEND Clinic-which stands for "Meet Each Need with Dignity," where I serve on the Board of Directors. We are thrilled to announce that MEND was recently awarded the Nonprofit Clinic of the Year in California.
