I can not say enough nice things about Dr. Rodriguez and his staff. He does remarkable work and he and everyone there are both caring and kind. If I’m not trying to stay awake from being SO relaxed during a procedure, I am trying not to laugh from the banter between him and Aida. I have no problem referring anyone and everyone I know to see him for any dental concerns and I always look forward to my next visit.

Dr. R and his staff are the best! A crown had come off one of my molars. Dr. R. examined the problem, explained in full the pros and cons of the procedure thoroughly. He did not try to talk me into a replacement crown or any other additional work. He cleaned the crown and the tooth, cemented the existing crown in place. No pain, no discomfort. (Lovely music playing in the background as I relaxed during the procedure.) Never, ever did Dr. R. try to sell me a “replacement” crown as the existing crown had not been damaged. I believe there are dentist who would have told me a $2,000. replacement was necessary. Thank you Dr. R for all of your fine work and your great ethics. Claudia F.

The Starland  Dentisty Team will provide you with the utmost comfort you would expect from a Dentist. In the past being frightful in anticipation of any dental procedure, I have come to look forward to cleanings, and Dental work. Dr. Rodriguez is one of the Best, if he can’t tackle an issue, he’ll have an excellent referral who will. Much Thanks Dr. Rodriguez to you and your staff.

Ariel is an amazing dentist with a wonderful office. He’s calm and friendly and does really great work. The receptionist is not the friendliest over the phone and booking appointments can get confusing with her. Hygienist was good, but her bedside manner was lacking. Ariel is a real gem though and I will return.

Had my first visit to Starland, and I’m sold. I’ve had negative experiences with Dentists in the past, but Dr. Rodriguez was great to take a lot of time to talk to me and make sure that I was informed and comfortable. The whole team was great, patient, and beyond helpful… Even when helping to answer questions on what our insurance would and wouldn’t cover when it came to a referral.

I love my visits with Dr. Rodriguez at Starland Dentistry. He is always professional and super knowledgable. Both he and his staff are friendly and strive to make you as comfortable as possible during your visits. The crowns I have had put in by Dr. Rodriguez have fit better than any in the past. He makes sure they fit perfectly every time!

Moving from Utah and my dentist of 30 years, I was terrified of the task to find a new one. So much that I would arrange appointments at my former dentist office each time I visited. After “testing out” three dentistries in Los Angeles, I am happy to say that this search is over. Starland Dentistry provides a small town care in a sea of endless teeth care options. The moment I called to make the appointment I knew Starland was different. The staff is warm and the office is inviting. During my first consultation, Dr. Rodriguez immediately began asking all the right questions, took digital images of all my teeth and showcased that I am just not another number. You found the right place if you want a personalized visit from a professional, down-to-earth and outgoing doctor.

Topher A. from Granada Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I haven’t been to the dentist in years. Dr. Rodriguez was amazing at getting me back into the swing if things. He was very explanatory and informative in regards to my questions and concerns. He spent time with me, made it enjoyable and fun. Minerva is awesome as well, she makes it so easy to work out appointments and always has my best interest in mind; calling me when there may be an opening thats more suitable. Staff seems to always be having a good time. I recently went back to have some chips corrected and it was awesome. He has a steady and talented hand that’s nearly painless. The style of the office is super cute and the music selection seems to always be on point! I look forward to seeing him on a consistent basis!!

I absolutely recommend Dr. Rodriguez to everyone I know! He, Andrea, and all of the other hygienists and staff have their patients best interests in mind. I hadn’t been to the dentist for 6 years before going to Dr. Rodriguez. He made me feel comfortable and thoroughly explained his recommendations. They have always provided me with excellent tips for at home dental care. On top of that, every single person at Starland Dentistry is friendly and welcoming. If you try them out, I promise you’ll actually look forward to going to the dentist!

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


I really hate dental work, so much so I would rather be run over by a car than go to the dentist! But one day I was have excruciating pain in my jaw and right molar. I have no regular dentist so I turned to Yelp and found Dr. Rodriguez. The reviews were solid and truth is I was a tad desperate being in pain. I could not have been luckier with my choice!! Dr. Ariel Rodriguez immediately identified the problem and suggested a specialist, Dr. Safa at Paaadena Endodontix as a root canal was needed. The referral to Dr. Safa was spot on and that experience was solid. Then I needed to return to Dr Rodriguez for the crown. I have to say he and his staff are exceptional, because I was cranky (I’ll blame the pain!). They were so patient and explained everything thoroughly and accurately and now, no more pain and I have a wonderful dentist I promise to visit yearly. I still hate spending time and money at the dentist, but like anything else you gotta do it so you might as well find someone who makes the process painless and pleasant! Thanks Dr. R!

Doctor Rodriguez is a great dentist, a very caring person. He listens to my treatment needs and is very gentle in his work. He also has a great staff including Stephanie who manages the front desk, Aiida his assistant, and Andrea who cleans my teeth. All are professional, gentle, caring and friendly. I’ve been very happy with the quality of Doctor Rodriguez’s work on my teeth, and I trust his judgement as to what needs to be done to preserve my smile. He will be my dentist for life

I have always been very afraid of the dentist. Because of my fear I had put off a lot of necessary dental work, I know, that’s bad :/ The office feels very warm. The place is decorated very nicely, mid century furniture and decor, I just love it. This is the first dental office that I’ve been to that feels homey. The staff is great! Everyone front the front office, dental assistant, dental hygienist, everyone that works there is fantastic! Dr. Rodriguez is very nice, gentle, soft spoken, explains everything in great detail, he didn’t make me feel bad for neglecting my teeth, instead he put together a plan in order for me to get all the necessary work done at a pace that I’m comfortable with. I’ve never felt this relaxed and confident with a dentist. I started taking my teen daughter to him as well and she’s had a great experience there too. No more fear of the dentist from either one of us. I’ve been going to him for about a year now and my smile looks better than ever. Dr. Rodriguez is now my forever dentist. I can’t say enough nice things about him and his staff.

This was the best experience at a dentist I have ever had…by far. The pace is relaxed and unhurried. Dr. Rodriguez is up on the latest in dental research and carefully explains the process of treatment. The technology is state of the art, the office is run impeccably and the staff is friendly. I’ve never had to wait more than a few minutes and scheduling an appointment is easy. This man is real. He truly cares about you as a person and is concerned about your wellbeing all along the way. I wish all my doctors were like him. I couldn’t recommend Starland Dentistry more highly.

Tony S. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Rodriguez knows his stuff and took the time explain to me.  In addition to that he’s very meticulous about detail and wanted to make sure my dental work was perfect.  He’s an outstanding dentist and also has a great staff (both back and front office).  His staff is  not only warm and friendly but very effective to making my dental experience as painless and smooth as possible.

I was fortunate enough to be Ariel’s patient a few years ago.  Unfortunately, a change in insurance forced me to change dental providers.  I have not been fully satisfied since that time because Dr. Rodriguez sets the bar high on service and education of his patients.  I’m very happy now because as of September I will have a plan that has Starland Dentistry on the list of providers.  I can’t tell you how stoked I am.   I hope his patient load is not too full already.

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


I’ve been meaning to write this review for sometime.  A friend of mine asked who my Dentist was today because I’m always raving about how AMAZING Dr. Rodriguez truly is– and it reminded me to get on Yelp and sing it loud for everyone to hear! Really, going to the Dentist is never any fun, until— I found the best Dentist in all the land.  He cares about each and every one of your teeth.  Not a joke! The office is super chic, always great music playing, and the staff is down to earth and awesome.  If you are looking to change your dental experience, give Starland Dentistry a call. 5 stars for you!

I had not gone to the dentist for over ten years and was terrified to go.( I kind of thought I would be shamed as I had had that experience at dentists in the past) Dr Rodriguez was recommended to me by a friend whom I trust, so I finally overcame my fear and went. This is a low pressure, safe space for getting your teeth well. Couldn’t recommend more highly.

Michael Vincent (Source: Google)


Dr. Rodriguez and the entire staff at Starland Dentistry are absolutely top notch. I have been a patient of theirs for years. Andrea’s knowledge and perseverance is without measure. Dr. Rodriguez has gone above and beyond. The man is a true artist and gentleman. I honestly believe there is no one better when it comes to dentistry. I am completely at ease in the hands of these professionals. Absolutely the highest recommendation. A+++

Christopher T. (Source: Zocdoc)


I have been visiting Dr. Rodriguez for several years and will continue to do so. His office is very clean and his staff is very friendly. Additionally, Dr. Rodriguez is extremely personable, takes the time to explain details about the process he is performing, and is very meticulous in his work. Overall, he ensures that the patient is comfortable, informed, and happy. Highly recommended.

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


Dr. Rodriguez is the best dentist I’ve ever had. I feel like a friend is also my dentist. Everyone who works here is kind, non judgmental and great at what they do. Since I started coming here 3 years ago I’ve only had positive experiences and look forward to coming here every six months for my cleanings. What’s more is they always do their best to accommodate me, have availability for early morning and Saturday appointments (since I often can’t miss work!), and if I’m annoying and tell Dr. R I have to be outta there quick he does his best to support that. Cannot recommend this office more!! Thanks for taking care of me, Starland!! PS the music they play is almost always very relaxing and not cheesy, same goes for the decor/ambience. it’s a great vibe on top of the service they offer! Free/ample parking as well and close to the 134 freeway.

Vittoria C. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I could not recommend these guys enough! Especially Dr Ariel, he did an amazing job on bonding my front teeth. Past experiences with other dentists have left me cautious but at Starland Dentistry, I can honestly say, it was my best dental experience so far. Thank you so much! V

I’ve never had a dental experience this positive, comfortable and thorough. Dr. Rodriguez, the Starland staff and their beautiful office gave me everything I need to move forward with peace of mind. The consultation itself was very easy to understand, with my x-rays and photographs explained to me clearly. Dr. Rodriguez outlined my options and I was able to choose the course of action most reasonable and appropriate for my needs. He also detailed where I was on track, and what areas needed the most attention, in order of priority. The staff was so helpful and welcoming, and the office itself is the most charming dental office you’re likely to see — it’s atomic age midcentury-modern, like you’ve just gone through a happy time machine (except the knowledge and techniques are completely up-to-date). I stand by this five-star review and am enthusiastic in recommending Starland Dentistry to others.

Starland Dentistry is Fantastic! Dr. Ariel Rodriquez is the best Dentist ever! The Dr., staff and assistants are a whole package that make up Starland Dentistry, they all are so caring, gentle, patient, kind and professional. I take pride in my teeth and recently had an accident that chipped my front tooth in half. Dr. Rodriquez was able to repair my tooth and it looks terrific. My husband has had full upper veneers done and is going back to have his lower teeth done. We now live in Huntington Beach and will drive over an hour for our favorite Dentist!!!

Ellen J. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental team in town. They are kind, patient, take all the time with you that you need, and have an excellent network of specialists they recommend when necessary. Dr. Rodriguez really cares about his patients. I trust him completely. I would not hesitate to recommend them, even to dental phobic people!

Dr. Rodriguez is a compassionate and caring Dr. I have been going to him for about 3 years. He is professional and understanding. When moving to the U.S. I was worried I wouldn’t find anyone that I could trust as I did with my former Dentist, he has proven to be as good if not better then my previous Dentist who I had gone to for many years.

Pasé mucho tiempo en los últimos años tratando de encontrar el dentista ideal, no solo como profesional sino en el trato córtez y paciente, un profesional sue se tome el tiempo de escuchar y resolver tus preguntas acerca de la salud dental y finalmente lo encontré. El doctor Ariel y su staff te dan un trato profesional, con respeto y dignidad. Lo que para muchas personas representa ir al dentista como algo estresante, el Doctor Rodriguez lo convierta en algo agradable y relajante. Su consultorio es un lugar donde se respira paz y tranquilidad, la música ayuda much a crear este ambiente y ni que decir de su staff, son personas agradables que te hacen sentir especial con un trato muy personalisado. Por estas y muchas razones más recomiendo ampliamente tomar al Doctor Rodruguez como tu dentista y te garantizo que será el último ya que encontrarás en él y su consultorio todo lo que estuvistes buscando en un profesional de la odontologia.

Dr. Rodriguez and his staff are by far the best dental office I have ever visited. He’s patient and thorough and extremely gentle for those (like me) who are squeamish about the dentist and needles and dentists wielding needles. His staff is polite, helpful and fun! I’m always able to get in for an appointment within a reasonable time and their office hours are very amenable to a working schedule. As a bonus, their office is done up in mod seventies style furnishings and it looks bitchin’. I can’t speak highly enough of this place.

After my first visit I told Dr.Rodriguez that “I found my dentist”. Few visits later, I’m still very happy with my choice. Friendly staff, unique retro style interior and an excellent dentist. Dr.Rodriguez explains everything in fine details and how he will do it. He is very gentile and careful. He did an excellent job fixing a filling that he thought it would cause an issue in future, and also fixed my previous dentist’s implant that was causing me so much pain and bleeding for the past 1.5 year in only 10min. I was told by that dentist, there is nothing can be done about it and I have to live it. I highly recommend Dr.Rodriguez.

Cas R. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


This review is overdue, but I am here to echo just how wonderful it is to be a patient at Dr. Rodriguez’s office. I always had an issue with going to the dentist; I always felt too busy, too scared, or too concerned about costs. I needed some extensive work, including a crown put in. Dr. Rodriguez executed each procedure perfectly and patiently explained each step involved. While I needed a lot of work, it was an empowering experience to be Dr. Rodriguez’s patient because he really does go out of his way to help you feel comfortable, track the progress of procedures, and clarify any information. He and his team are also incredibly competent and kind. During my several visits at the office, Dr. Rodriguez and the staff always extended a sincere and kind word to me. I also like that the office sends email and text notifications to confirm appointments. I highly recommend Starland Dentistry, so much so that even though I am moving a few hours away, I am still thinking I will make the trip for my appointments.

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


WOW… Just WOW! I have had a lot of dental work, regular cleanings, braces, teeth pulled, root canals when I got my teeth knocked out, crowns, veneers… i’ve had it all, and I’ve never had such an enjoyable experience at a dentists office. The ENTIRE team is incredible. Everyone was sweet and all the dental techs were a pleasure and unbelievably accommodating, making sure you’re at ease and explaining everything as they were doing it. Ariel was so informative and really went above and beyond to make sure he knew about my dental history and took the time to walk me through my x-rays, literally tooth by tooth in some instances, explaining what everything was and what needed to be done. They discussed payment options and insurance and took the time to make the call to my insurance company even though we were both pretty sure i didn’t have coverage. My fiancé has not been to a dentist in about 4 years between no longer being able to use her parents and getting new insurance through her school. She was a bit nervous and expected a plethora of work that would need to be done. We both left the office amazed, feeling like we were in good hands, with our next appointments already set up and some how the stigma of going to the dentist has seemed to disappear. On top of all that, as if it couldn’t get any better, my fiancé and I are huge fans of mid century design and Arial, being a fan himself, has done and incredible job decorating the waiting room and offices. It really makes it a much more relaxing environment. He even took the time to excitedly show me his office and desk after my fiancé let it slip that we were midcentury fans. If you live anywhere in the vicinity and need and new dentist, or are new the area, I have NO idea why you would go to anyone else. Thank you Ariel and Starland Dentistry! d

This is the only dentist’s office I’ve ever been to that’s actual FUN — yes, FUN — to visit. Dr. Rodriguez is funny, smart, caring and skilled. Andrea is the most gentle, sweet and kind dental hygienist on the face of the earth, and to boot, the office decor is to DIE FOR. Mid-century gorgeous & cool. It’s truly a dental office where everyone is treated like a STAR. And yes of course they do a wonderful job taking care of your teeth painlessly 🙂

R. Paul D. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


By far the best dentist in LA. I can’t imagine a more skilled or friendly team. And when something beyond a cleaning is schduled there is no reason for panic. Dr. Rodriquez is what I consider an Artist! Pain-free and lightning fast. If you do love going to the dentist, why not consider a different one?!


Ariel Rodriguez owns and operates Starland Dentistry. The name is a homage to many inspirations: the forward-thinking TV shows he grew up watching (anything from The Jetsons and Bewitched to Star Trek), the glitzy glamour that everyone associates with Los Angeles, and the stars we admire from nearby Griffith Observatory. Starland represents a state of mind that is both Mid-Century and Post-Modern. It is a nod to the optimism of designs by Eames and Neutra as well as a self-reflexive wink in the mirror of ordinary vanity. Dr. Rodriguez designed his office to address the health needs of a major body part: the mouth, smile or no smile. There’s no reason why going to the dentist can’t be an awesome experience. He crafts an environment that delivers that and produces exemplary work. He’s caring and he’s funny (according to his assistant), but he’s no joke. He takes his work seriously and provides education, options, and service.
