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

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


Whenever we crack or chip a tooth, life stops in its tracks. I musta been grinding my teeth like mad to crack not one lower molar, but two…. I’ve had root canals but not crowns, so had no idea what to expect yesterday. My appointment lasted 3 hours, during which time there was a lot of grinding, and not the good kind. The teeth had to be ground down, and then temporary caps put into place until the permanent caps can be made by the lab. Good news: no serious pain. After the Novocaine, Dr. Aaronson & his assistant worked hard while I reclined in the chair feeling bored, wondering if I could nap through all the noise from the drills & whatnot. There was a little aching in my jaw as the anesthetic wore off, that’s it. Today, the day after, I feel nothing. This is quite remarkable, all things considered. So if ya need a crown or two, don’t be skirred… my point. And I’m sure it helps to have a great dentist. I’ve been seeing Dr. Aaronson for about 10 years, and I like the doctor & his staff….they are gentle, caring, friendly, and fun. I guess they probably appreciate the fact that I’m no dental chicken, I just roll with whatever procedures are needed, happy to be living in current times & not back in an age when teeth were pulled with pliers & a bottle of whiskey. I do wear a lower night guard to protect my teeth while I’m grinding in my dreams, and Dr. Aaronson’s staff even made the temporary caps fit the night guard. When everything was completed, before I was set free for the day, they handed me a fragrant hot towel so I could “freshen up”. Hell, it felt like a spa….. The most painful experience of the day was writing the check to pay for all this cuz I have no dental insurance. But I’ve always found Dr. Aaronson’s costs to be on the low side, even when compared to other parts of the country. Word of advice: don’t wait long to get dental care when you think you need it. The sooner problems are addressed, the better. : D

The entire office is very professional and from start to finish I could not have asked for more. Every person there was not only professional but great to work with. I am very impressed with the outcome of my visits to the office of Dr Ellie Farahmond. I felt like my needs mattered (everyone was very attentive) and the work done on my teeth has me smiling in a way I never thought I could again! Thank you Dr. “Ellie”! You gave me my smile back!

Always able to fit me in an emergency over the years. Consistently good service and friendly atmosphere. I feel like I am in good hands here always. Aaronson is also a stained glass artist and understands details and color in addition to dentistry. Dr. Ellie is amazing and kind as well. Love my veneers, a second pair after stupidly chipping my first. I only wish they did root canals too.

My dad is a dentist, and I’ve had a difficult time finding one in LA that was interested in real dentistry (as opposed to all the cosmetic stuff).  Dr. Aaronson’s staff was kind and considerate.  My hygenist was Barbara, who was meticulous and very quick with the cleaning.  I recommend this office to anyone in need of a good family dentist

Lisa A. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Unbelievable service and technical work.  I drove 75 minutes from Santa Clarita to get my crown done due to recommendation from a periodontist.  Dr. Aaronson did the mold and Dr. Farahmand did the final fitting.  The whole team works together seemlessly.  They are polite and efficient.  All my questions were answered.  Sonia, the office manager was excellent as well as my Adriana, the assistent who fixed my dental appliance for free (from another office). They don’t waste time making the customer sit forever in the chair.  It’s a one person at a time type place, not a free for all rat house.  I don’t usually do yelp reviews, but this place deserves 10 stars!

I am one of the many dentist-phobic people inhabiting our fair city. In fact, I used my new found college freedom to elect NOT to go to the dentist at all. 4 years later, I was in trouble. I called Dr. Aaronson and he got me in right away. He told me, in the nicest possible way, that I needed an emergency root canal. He referred me to a specialist and it was all done that same morning. Dr. Aaronson and his team did a great job with the crown. I’ve been a patient for about two years now and couldn’t be happier. Dr. Aaronson is not a lecturer or a guilt-tripper. He’ll make you feel comfortable immediately and always asks “What’s fun and new and different?” I’m a total convert and would absolutely recommend him. The entire staff is wonderful.

Hazel Grace D. from Seattle, WA (Source: Yelp)


Great Dentist, very gentle with good bedside manners — this is always important to me… when you can’t talk it’s nice when the person talking to you interesting and considerate. The hygienists are also fantastic and very helpful. The entire staff is meticulous and does beautiful, precise work. Just the kind of people you want to go for more major issues – like the beautiful crown they did for me 🙂

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


I actually met with Ellie Farahmand DDS, and not Steven Aaronson DDS (they’re both in the Santa Monica Dental Office). Usually I write reviews about food; why my dentist? I want others to know that my experience was a good one (and maybe next time they’ll hook me up with a free toothbrush or something cool like that). When I first got there, I (idiotically) told the receptionist that my dental insurance was Blue Shield. She tried verifying this with the insurance company, but they had no record. It turns out my insurance is through Met Life; somehow she figured this out right before I did, called them, and verified it. She wasn’t upset about it. In fact, she was as nice as could be despite my monumental stupidity. So once the insurance was done and the requisite forms filled out, I was taken back to have my x-rays taken. It was very quick, and done with a soft touch. The x-ray person was very efficient and good. I then met Dr. Farahmand. She was very friendly, yet professional, and checked out my teeth. We talked about my dental habits and my history with dental exams. Very nice and respectful of me. I didn’t feel intimidated or stupid for not having been to the dentist in two years. After that, I had my cleaning. It was thorough, and the lady (I fail to remember her name) did a fine job. She answered my questions and made me feel taken care of.

I’ve been going to Dr. Aaronson for a few years and absolutely recommend this dental office. Everyone is extremely friendly and experienced. They give genuine recommendations to help improve teeth/gum health outside of the basic “floss more.” My teeth have never looked better or been healthier!

Caitlin S. from Westchester / LAX, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been on the hunt for a good dentist for the last 8 years (since I moved to LA) and had yet to find one I trusted and felt comfortable at. I’ve been asking around non stop for recommendations and no one could say they liked their dentist enough to recommend. I was seeing the orofacial clinic at UCLA for my TMJ and asked them for a recommendation. Without a thought the supervising doctor said Dr. Aaronson’s office. I made a call the next day and they fit me right in. I saw Dr. Ellie who was absolutely wonderful. The X-ray technician and the dental hygienist were the best too! I avoid the dentist at all costs and the three of them made my experience comfortable and easy! Now I’m looking forward to going back for my next cleaning–A feeling I have never had in my life about going to the dentist! Thank you!

This is my first time writing a review, but since I used yelp to find Dr. Aaronson, I thought it only fair that I return and write about my experience. The front office environment is comfortable and the staff is friendly. I did not have to wait at all, in fact they were waiting for me to fill out my new patient paperwork, so that they could take me back. I liked that the paperwork asked about health conditions and dental history. I know that it should be a given, but it isn’t always the case. I was taken to the x-ray room and was attended to by a competent, friendly and very quick x-ray technician, she seemed to really know her job. Next I met Dr. Aaronson, who is warm and professional. We discussed why I hadn’t seen a dentist for 6 years, he asked me some other questions, and gave me a quick exam. He told me that he would see me after my cleaning, with the Hygenist, to go over my x-rays. The hygeniest made me feel at ease, even though I was a little embarrassed at having waited so long to have my visit. She was chatty, but also very aware of what she was doing and making me comfortable. I felt like I was in good hands and could relax. I was with her the longest. She finished up with some advice about flossing and then escorted me to Dr. Aaronson’s room. Dr. Aaronson gave me a thorough exam and went over my x-rays with me. He told me about some wisdom teeth that showed up on the x-rays that could give me trouble later, but since I’m not having any now, recommended that we not do anything. He also noticed some slight grinding, he asked me some questions related to symptoms, and since this is old activity and not a current issue, it’s just something we’re going to watch. I got a clean bill of health and made an appointment to come back 6 months from now. I am completely won over by their service and will now stay on track of my dental health. I told Dr. Aaronson when I was there that they have beautiful offices and staff, and that goes for him too. The office itself is clean and modern, even cheerful feeling. They have a high level of professionalism. For each of the steps during my visit I was immediately escorted to a private room. There was only one time where I had to wait and that was for Dr. Aaronson, however it was only for 10 minutes and I was told ahead of time and given a magazine. This I find quite unusual and worth mentioning. I felt that my time was valued – very rare. Thank you Dr. Aaronson and staff, I will certainly be back, and I’m happy to say that I have finally found a dentist that I like. Keep up the excellent work!

My wife and I have been going to Dr. Aaronson for years and we are always impressed with his professionalism and the efficiency and personability of the staff.  I can say that my teeth are in their best condition in years, thanks in no small part to Dr. Aaronson’s care.

What a fantastic office!!! From Donna to Sonya(ia) to Barbara to Steve to all the xray techs etc, to support staff, to anyone-everyone associated with the Aaronson office, very sorry there aren’t enough gold stars to plaster on the foreheads of everyone- -five (5) is the maximum!!!! All above are delightful professionals who make your visit absolutely pleasant!! Many times over the years I have received unexpected follow up phone calls at the most unusual times(Sunday nights at home) just to make sure I am ok. What else can u say for gosh sakes.

This morning I went into the office today to get a teeth cleaning.  The office was very clean and the staff was very friendly.  The hygienist that cleaned my teeth was amazing!  I’m not sure of her name, but she was a nice blonde lady.   She was very informative and told me what I should do to get my teeth in tip top shape!  I would highly recommend anyone going here, and especially getting her!  I’m enjoyed my time, and next time I go in, I will DEFINETLEY request to have her again!

I went to Junior & senior high with steve Aaronson; so when I needed a new dentist about 10 years ago, I choose him mainly because I remember him as being extremely smart growing up.  He & his staff have not let me down.  I have problem teeth.  Dr. Aaronson has done crowns, fillings,a night guard, teeth whitening, tooth extractions and I see a hygenist (Roberta) there every 3 months for cleaning.  all work has been spot on. Frst rate dentist & staff, I highly recommend!

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


I’ve been going to Dr. Aaronson for many years. He’s an excellent dentist, period. He never recommends anything that he doesn’t feel strongly about. There is no upselling here, no pushing you in to procedures you don’t really need. He’s very sensitive to those of us who are terrified of dental procedures. He’s a gem. The office is well-run and organized.

Taryn O. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic experience. From the X-rays to the extraction I was treated very well. The staff was super nice and friendly, and Dr. Aaronson was great, I felt like I could ask all those ‘stupid’ questions without feeling stupid. Recommending them to my very picky bosses!
