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

Once again I need to give Dr Arima 5 stars.  Yesterday my husband had two posts inserted into his jaw.  Dr Arima throughout this surgery  made sure my husband was in no pain.  He was gentle and my husband had little bleeding.  24 hours later he has no swelling or pain.  We were shocked how well the procedure went as my husband has multiple health issues.  I definitely recommend Dr Arima for anyone who dreads the dentist or needs potentially painful surgery done painlessly.

Dr Arima has an amazing office space with the latest equipment making the experience easy and quick. I always go in for routine check ins cleanings and any major problems and I am always taken care of my the best people possible, not to mention Dr Arima had a great attitude in the workplace and loves his job. Each experience with Arima has been nothing but a great time and done with little to no pain and with great attention to detail each and every time and always makes you feel comfortable by conversing with you while he does his job. If you ever need a great dentist to go to I would highly highly suggest Dr Steven Arima he’s taken care me and my family for years and I wouldn’t trust anyone else.

My husband and I have been patients of  Dr. Arima’s for a while now, and we’ve always been very happy with the care we have received from him and his staff.  This weekend he proved again why he is a Five Star dentist.  My husband awoke Saturday morning to major swelling on his gum.  Of course, these things always happen on a weekend when the office is closed, right? He called Dr Arima’s exchange, and within less than an hour Dr Arima called him back and met him at his office. Turns out he needed an emergency tooth extraction, which Dr Arima performed on the spot. Thank you again, Doctor, for taking such good care of my husband!

When I tell folks I’m going to see the dentist , they always look at me fearfully, telling me they are so sorry. I guess most people have had bad experiences at the dentist. This is not the case with Dr Arima and staff. I never have anxiety about coming here and I’ve been seeing this group for many years. If I moved from SCV I probably would continue to do so. The staff is always helpful, caring and reasonable. I highly recommend this dental group. His work is great, efficient… he’s been a magician too…saving teeth that others wouldn’t have even tried-always up  to meeting the challenge.

Dr. Arima is the best dentist. He truly cares about his patients. He always makes sure I’m comfortable while he provides outstanding treatment. Thank you to Dr. Arima and his amazing staff.

Jenni R. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


A friend recommended me to Dr Arima and Ive been extremely happy with the quality of both him and his dental hygienists. Everyone is VERY meticulous, and a perfectionist at what they do. I have an especially bad case of TMJ, and while I’ve had 5 cleanings and 2 crowns done over the last few years in this office, Ive never left with a sore jaw! Everyone one staff is very friendly and clear they enjoy working in this positive and beautiful environment.

Chandler S. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to Dr. Arima for over 10 years and I could never imagine going to any other dentist. He and his entire staff are so friendly. I never have to wait longer than 5 minutes to be seen, and the new office is so spacious and beautiful. Dr. Arima is such an amazing dentist; he is so gentle and it makes coming to the dentist that much easier. I will continue coming to him because he truly is the best at his craft

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


We have been coming to Dr. Arima for over 10 years! His office is like family now. We have 3 little ones and they have been coming to him since they could talk. Everyone is friendly, the office is clean and they all take the time to make sure you are comfortable and explain whatever you are having done. My family and I love this practice and are more than happy to continue with his service.

Kimberly D. from Granada Hills, Los (Source: Yelp)


I’m relieved to have found a trustworthy and reliable dentist. Today was my first visit to Dr. Arima and I found him to be quite attentive and a good listener. He examined my teeth thoroughly and was quick in understanding my dental history from looking at my x-rays before I even shared details with him; and he made sure to not miss anything in his examination and his treatment. Thank you so much, Dr. Arima!

Phillip H. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been over 3 years since my last review but thankfully not 3 years since my last dental visit. I just completed my semi-annual checkup and thought back at how long I have been a patient of Dr. Arima. The old saying that “time flies when you’re having fun” is really not appropriate for dental visits but in Dr. Arima’s case it fits perfectly. He is an amazing dentist with a courteous and wonderful staff and I am looking forward to adding many more years to this relationship. My highest recommendation accompanies this review and my only issue is that a “5-Star” rating limit is just not high enough!!!

Brandon H. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arima’s office is wonderful!  His staff is very friendly.  While getting my teeth cleaned they always double-check that I am comfortable.  They also don’t take anything for granted, making sure to ask my permission before even doing routine things like taking X-rays.  I really appreciate that!  I used to hate my appointments with my old dentist, but with Dr. Arima, I look forward to them!

D. M. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let me start by saying that I dislike dentists, actually I dislike the procedure. This stems from something that happened in my childhood. I love Dr. Arima,  He puts up with all my phobias and is always patient and understanding. I have been coming to him for over 8 years now.  I could not have gotten a better dentist if I had tried. The staff there are all great too!

Erica M. from Oxnard, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was recommended to Dr. Arima’s office by my mom who absolutely loves them. I just moved in from out of state and was now using a new insurance. The receptionist was very knowledgeable about my coverage and co-pays that she made it very easy for my whole family to be seen. The office itself is just like the picture, very relaxing and luxurious, you feel like you’re entering a spa. But the staff is very down to earth. Especially the hygienist who was very careful, calm, great mood, you feel like you’re visiting a friend. Dr. Arima himself is kinda quiet but took his time to hear my concerns. They didn’t overcharge me or rush any dental work I don’t need, unlike other offices, where my dad was scammed $800! Highly recommend this location (near plenty of restaurants too)!

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


The best dentist I’ve ever been to!  I’ve been going to see Dr. Arima for years and he is not only good at what he does but, his sweet and kind demeanor really puts you at ease when it comes to any dental work that needs to be done.  I moved five years ago to the valley and still drive all the way up to Valencia because he’s worth it!  Not to mention all the girls and technicians in his office are lovely and always remember my name. I can’t say enough nice things about this office. I referred numerous neighbors and friends to him and they all say the same thing and still go to him.

Erin T. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Arima’s for over 20 years!  I highly recommend him and his staff!  They always try to fit you in the schedule for something that just can’t wait.  The staff is very knowledgeable, friendly and efficient.  Dr. Arima gave me veneers on the top front of my teeth and they are absolutely beautiful.  I feel relaxed and comfortable during all procedures.  The office is beautiful and relaxing too.  Don’t hesitate in picking up the phone to make your first appointment – you won’t be disappointed!!

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


I had an amazing experience at this dental office. It is located in a nice area and is a very clean. I felt welcomed by the staff and was more than happy with the work I had done. I would definitely recommend this office!!

I love this dentist. My dentist of 20 years closed his practice and I went to two new practices to find a replacement for the dentist I absolutely loved. It wasn’t until I went to Dr. Arima’s practice that I knew I found my new dentist. He is a REAL dentist not just a cosmetic dentist trying to make money. He does a wonderful job at keeping your teeth in the best shape. His dental hygienist is really thorough. His staff is wonderful. Not having very good insurance, the staff works with me and lets me know ahead of the procedure what it will cost.

Mike B. from Agua Dulce, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arima is a very personable and professional dentist. His office staff and dental hygienist are great at what they do, too. They all make the dentist office visit as enjoyable as possible. My family and I have been going to him for 15 years since moving back to the area.  Mike Buchanan

I have been really happy with Dr.Arima and his staff. We first meet them when our oldest son needed an emergency procedure and they were the only dentist in town that would take him in, they were so good to him and caring. We had been attending to a different dental office and were very unsatisfied, so it was very easy to change all our family to Dr. Arima’s and we just love their honesty and friendliness. They are to us some of the few mazing dentist in Santa Clarita. We know they are great because we have experienced it first hand. If you are looking for a good honest upfront dentist Dr. Arima’s is your guy and his staff some of the most amazing people you will meet.

Ashlee C. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


Let’s face it, nobody really likes going to the dentist. My previous dentist sold his practice and moved away. I was not very happy with the replacement guy. My neighbor spoke so highly of Dr. Arima and I had a bunch of work to get done before my wedding next month I figured, let’s give it a shot! They are AMAZING!! They make you feel
Welcome, the hygienists and assistants as very sweet and knowledgeable. Dr. Arima has now done two of my procedures and in addition fixed a filling that was coming away, that was not scheduled.I would recommend people looking for an office that will work with you and are very helpful and knowledgeable to give them a call!

I went for my 6 month cleaning and diagnosis. Habar, the dental hygienist did a great job in cleaning my teeth. She was very thorough and cleaned places that I don’t recall ever having been cleaned before. She was very professional and easy going. She was concerned with my comfort and when I shared that I needed support for my head she found a pillow and even put a new pillow case on it. Dr. Arima came in and did the diagnosis. He noticed a couple of teeth that were sort of worn down but since I was not having any pain he did not push me to have work done. He was very warm and friendly. Stephanie was her usual helpful and caring self. She is the only holdover from my previous dentists, It was nice to see a familiar face. I left the office on “cloud nine”. Thank you! What great staff!

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


Love the new office and especially happy to see the smiling faces of Connie and Cathy at reception. They are so sweet and professional from their greeting, to scheduling my appointments, billing questions you name it they are courteous and ready to help. My cleaning with Niki today was excellent and just what I needed to keep my teeth and gums healthy!! Thank you Arima Dental!!

Megan H. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am SO glad that I found Dr. Arima!!! I will admit – I am not the easiest patient. I have a lot of anxiety when it comes to dental procedures but Dr. Arima and his staff make me feel so comfortable. He is so kind and gentle. He knows I am a nervous person and makes sure that I feel calm by explaining the procedure, giving me the remote to the TV, etc. In addition to all of this, the office is so beautiful and soothing that I feel at ease. I strongly recommend him!!!

Kristina S. from Camarillo, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had times where I have NEEDED to get in asap and the friendly staff is always so accommodating to make it work. Dr. Arima I have known all my life and while I hate going to the dentist, there is NO ONE else I would rather go to. He is funny and gentle. Always looking out for the good of the patient, not one of the ones who tell you that you need thousands of dollars of work when you actually don’t…he is always very great with kids. my 3 year old and 6 year old aren’t afraid to go see him at all ! Thanks Doc Arima and staff!!!

Kristy S. from Santa Clarita, CA  (Source: Yelp)


From the minute you step foot into Dr. Arima’s office you are greeting by his friendly staff. They go the extra mile by ensuring that they keep your wait time to a minimum. The hygienist is very effective and thorough in cleanings and makes sure you are always comfortable. Then the doctor meets with you and he is informative and ensures you are aware of possible future problems areas. I have been going to him for over 10 years and have always felt my teeth are very well taken care of my coming here. My parents and sister also come here for several years. I’ve made various referrals and highly recommend Dr. Arima’s office.

Christian R. from Canyon Country, Canyon (Source: Yelp)


After avoiding visiting the dentist for three years due to a phobia caused by several root canal procedures after a skateboarding accident, I decided to come see Dr. Arima for a check up to see how everything was going with my teeth. All I can say is that the visit i experienced at Dr Arima’s office made me regret not coming sooner! They gave me a nice deep cleaning (which I usually hate) and were nice and gentle with my teeth and gums while still managing to make sure that I was leaving their office with the cleanest teeth my teeth can be. The staff here is professional, easy to talk to, and make everything clear about the status of your teeth. Dr. Arima is the man! Cant wait to come back in for another cleaning!

Jere C. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m terrified of dentists. I’d swear my dentist back in the 70s was a former Nazi or Orin Scrivello from little shop of horrors (sadistic bastard) But Dr. Arima is far from it. He’s patient yet quick and clearly explains every procedure. From my perspective, a person who would rather have a proctology exam than visit the dentist; I can’t recommend Dr. Arima enough. The longer you wait the more work and more cash it will cost you. Make you’re appointment today!!! Trust me, I know from personal experience

Holly H. from Del Sur, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arima has taken care of our family dental needs for over 20 years. He is so very kind and gentle and his entire staff is awesome. I have a significant plaque/calculus build up problem for which I’m at the office every 3 months. I’m there quite often! Last year I lost a tooth due to a TMJ problem. Dr. Arima always takes the time needed to put our family’s needs  as a priority and all of our entire extended family also goes to Arima Dental. I feel like their office atmosphere is like family and I look forward to seeing everyone there every three months. GREAT JOB ARIMA DENTAL and thank you for taking care of all of our family’s dental needs for over 20 years!

Julie H. from Castaic, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arima and his staff are excellent!  I am not a fan of going to the dentist, but they make the entire experience enjoyable!  Always a friendly and warm welcome, painless cleaning using state of the art technology, and a dentist that is the absolute best at what he does.  The staff is knowledgeable with insurance and is always willing to work with the patient on billing questions.  I highly recommend this office!  I have been a patient for several years and wouldn’t go anywhere else!!  I do not recommend getting a cleaning with Denise though!  Everyone else is wonderful.

Tina H. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr. Arima for the past 15 plus years.  I appreciate his down-to-earth demeanor and that he is a great dentist.  Have never felt pressured to have unneeded procedures done.  This office has such a peaceful atmosphere. Dr. Arima and his staff are THE BEST!
