After a huge dissapointment a couple years back, I started going to Dr. Kigawa. He’s the best, hands down. And, unfortunately, I’m one to know… I’ve seen several dentists in the last 20 years because of 2 sets of braces and a bunch of TMJ issues. He’s one of the only dentists on the westisde that has all the sleep study certs as well. Keep it up, you’re the best.

Dr. Kigawa came highly recommended by two people I know, so I decided to switch to a PPO and it was sure worth it.  He is great – makes you feel comfortable, is gentle yet thorough, explains everything, and my kids love him.  Actually his whole office is wonderful – super nice, friendly and accommodating.  Both dental hygienists are great, too. I can’t think of anything negative about this office – so glad I switched!

Most people can’t say that they love going to the dentist, but I do!  Everyone that works in Dr. Kigawa’s office is so friendly and helpful.  I’ve been going there for the past 3.5 years.  The office is recently remodeled and full of the latest technology.  Dr. Kigawa is a super nice guy and I trust his honesty.  Several people from my office have gone to him and all had similar feedback

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


Not only is Dr. Steve Kigawa great at what he does, but his staff as well.  Griselda runs the administrative side and is extremely helpful.  Melvin is one of the dental assistants and is terrific.  The office is also pretty hi tech….X rays pop up b4 my eyes and got to watch TV while “Zoom”-ing! Another BIG deal for me….I didn’t have to wait!

Richelle M. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Have seen Dr. Kigawa for my inital visit only but so glad to have found him. I have been to some aweful dentists in LA and he and his office are a breath of fresh air. The office is super state of the art (TV while you get you teeth cleaned!) and the staff are all really nice and helpful. I know a bunch of people who see him, as we were also recommended and everyone has nothing but great thing to say. If you are looking for a dentist in this area don’t pass Dr. Kigawa up

Diana M. from Playa Del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very personable and knowledgeable. His father was a dentist in the same office before he retired.  From the certificates on the wall, it’s clear he does a lot of continuing education, which made me feel a lot better as he prepared my tooth for a crown.

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


Seriously the BEST dentist that I have ever had. The customer service is AMAZING! Everyone is very friendly and professional. They really take their time in explaining every process. They even measured my gums on my first visit! I have never even heard of that prior to visiting Dr. Kigawa’s office preventative care is really important to them. They are the standard that every office should strive for..

Douglas J. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


My wife and I moved 30 miles away and we both still go to see Dr. Kigawa. There’s a reason. He runs a great office and hires knowledgable, well-trained staff. He’s been our dentist for nearly 15 years now and was the best recommendation from a friend we ever received. I cannot recommend his office highly enough

Sharon P. from Hermosa Beach, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kigawa has been my dentist for over 25 years. Before Dr. Kigawa I saw his father, who was my dentist when I was a child. Dr. Kigawa is a patient, kind, capable dentist with excellent personnel. I highly recommend this dentist office.

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


I have been seeing Dr. Kigawa since i was a little girl and i love him! his entire staff is so nice, knowledge, and attentive! He does an amazing job and makes sure that im always comfortable before he proceeds with anything. I had my first (and i pray my last!) root canal here about a month ago…..i was expecting a bloody and painful disaster! it was actually A LOT better than i had anticipated! the most important thing he could have ever done was to make sure the anesthesia took completely before moving on….other doctors “time it” instead of checking on the patient. I have recommended other friends/family here and everyone is happy here. im actually not afraid or wary of going to the dentist 🙂

Ivan Y. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


My first visit to Dr. Kigawa was about a year ago, I had some work done and it’s been 100% good.  He communicates well and goes over the treatment plan in detail.  All of his staff are friendly and professional.  I give my highest recommendation for Dr. Kigawa and his entire team.

Steve S. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is an office that is filled with great people.  Griselda was very informative, helpful, kind, and pleasant.  Melvin was very friendly as well.  Dr Kigawa got me in at the last minute and was very personable, professional, competent and overall excellent.  I highly recommend and I’m going to be using him as my dentist from here on.  I’m already referring my friends here.

Lisa C. from Venice, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kigawa is great! He’s totally cheery and fun to chat with, particularly for a dentist, who on the whole have never impressed me with their flair for conversation. or smell (…let’s just say my childhood dentist was not very frangrantly inclined. noo need for detail). Moving along! The first time I saw him, he was totally attentive and took the time to address all my concerns.  All of the receptionists who work for Dr.Kigawa are the nicest people ever, they didn’t even get mad when I accidentally took  (took, stole — same difference) my chart and didn’t return it for like six months. And when I was shopping around for dentists, Roselda was the only person out there who bothered to stop and answer all my questions about my insurance, without being hella impatient or sounding annoyed.  Finally, one disclaimer I should offer, for whatever it’s worth, is that I’ve only seen Dr. Kigawa twice.  I’m going to miss him when I leave L.A.!

I’ve been going to “Dr. Steve” for forever!  He’s so personable, fast and does great work.  My teeth are always super sparkly white when my appointment is done.  Marina, Miguel, Ciani, Griselda, Amanda and Melvin are all great!  Thanks you guys!

June Y. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Kigawa and his staff are very nice, and have lots of patience especially with nervous patients like myself. They have the most current technology, and they make you feel comfortable. They are a very close team of workers with a great sense of humor! Going to the dentist and getting cleaning have never felt so easy! Thanks guys!

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


Very friendly and knowledgable staff that accepts pretty much any PPO insurance. Cleanings are thorough and affordable and the doctor (and staff) are actual humans. Really nice, smart people that do just what they’re supposed to do–clean your teeth and not make your mouth/wallet hurt. Three visits in so far, all have been great and very easy to schedule. No waiting in the waiting room helps, too

Sia A. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really like this dentist office. They are all always very informative and talk you through everything. I am glad I found a dentist I like and have confidence in. They have never recommended any unnecessary procedures and are always ready to answer any questions. My dental hygienist is Miguel, and he is awesome!
