I have had a great experience. My review might get taken down or not accepted. I had seen previous reviews. I used to have a ppo insurance. I don’t understand why people are always giving low stars due to the fact that they did not get the diagnosis that they wanted. A dentist always needs to examine a patients oral hygiene. No patient is ever “made” to accept the proposed Dental treatment. What I noticed fro all low reviews is that they all complaint about money. Losers

Cosmetic dentistry in South Gate with the highest quality care I’ve seen. I got sent here from my dental office that’s near me and I’m glad I did. They’re work is flawless. I got a set of porcelain veneers for my front teeth and look phenomenal. Done quickly and with great caring staff. They specialize in aesthetic dentistry and pretty much everything else.

Excellent customer service and prices! Very little or no wait time! Going to the dentist can be scary but the staff and dentist make you feel at ease as soon as you walk in. I like the free dental kit. There’s coffee and water in the waiting lounge. I don’t have little one’s but they do have great toys for children to play with. This place is great for people of all ages! The location is great as well. It’s conveniently located near the Super A market. A nail salon and a pharmacy. With a 7 eleven just a few steps away. I would recommend Summer Smile Dental to all my friends and family!

I have had bad experiences and was totally afraid of getting work done, I came here because I couldn’t stand the pain any longer. I needed a root canal.Dr. Sheila explained everything in detail and honestly I didn’t even feel the anesthesia injections,my recovery has been good and all the staff are amazing.They work with your insurance, offer care credit or even payments. I am recommending this place and will have my family transferred as well.Thanks Summer Smile Dental

OMG! Finally found my Dentist in South Gate. This office located at the Super A Shopping center on California Ave in South Gate is by far the best dentist if have ever been to. The staff and dentists are all very professional and kind and caring. They were able to take care of my whole family even my kids and do Braces for them. I had a chipped tooth that was preventing me from smiling, but when they were done with the white filling, you couldn’t tell it was ever chipped. Dr. Torbati’s dental aesthetic skills got me smiling again.

Dr. Torbati is Great.  I will always continue coming here.  Her staff are very friendly.  They have expanded now.  I guess when your good people hear about it and they needed more room.  I will continue to recommend her to my friends and family.  I consider her a friend now.  No more sensitive teeth which I suffered with all my life.  I just set up the appointment to bring my kids and if I can convince my husband then him too.  Thank you again Dr. Torbati.

Iris A. from Orange, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m usually very afraid of the dentist. But every time I come here I feel at ease. Everyone is very friendly.  The dentist is very nice and gentle. All my life I had horrible brown stains on my front teeth.  Dr torbati gave me the best smile in the world with veneers.  She had truly changed my life.  I love my new smile.  The staff is very friendly and I have never had to wait more than 10 mins. I also like the fact that they could put me on a very easy payment plan.  I will never be afraid of the dentist again.

Best dentist in South Gate. I had a chipped tooth and they repaired it PAIN FREE. I have never had such a comfortable experience in my life. They have a special technology tooth binding material that repaired my tooth and mimics my exact tooth color. It will even change as my tooth changes color naturally. How amazing! Glad this place is near me.

Candice L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Torbati is by far the best dentist that i have known in my entire life! I was searching on yelp for a dentist near my office which then i saw summer smile, i bought the yelp deal and went in for x_rays check ups and all that! Dr. Torbati was soo acommodating and nice, if it was any other dentist they would try to rip me off by suggesting some hardcore percitures, but she only recommended the ones that i really need! Not to mention she gave me some dental care samples so i can try them! I will def be back! Thank you guys!

Roya M. from Encino, CA (Source: Yelp)


As much as I dislike dentists, Summer Smile Dental changed my previous views. The dentists working at this establishment, namely Dr. Torbati, are quite talented and overall miracle workers. I came in to get my teeth whitened and not only did my teeth become whiter, but they were whitened for a very reasonable asking. They were polite and provided quick service. I truly appreciate what Summer Smile Dental have done for me. I recommend that anyone looking for at least a whitening should go to Summer Smile Dental. Again Thanks!!

Cher D. from Compton, CA (Source: Yelp)


OMA!!! I’ve been to a lot of dentist around the country and by far this dental office and Dr. Donna Torbati are the best dentist and staff I’ve met in a long time. NO PAIN! That was ever so great, for a root Canal!! Wow, I’ve met some nice dentist that didnt really have or take time or their staff were quite IMpersonal or everything is about the money BUT this dentist and the staff get 5+ stars from me, I left with a smile, prices were low and no pain. No pain even after the Novocain wore off, nothing!!! 1st time ever. Dr. Torbati spoke to me like a friend, I was ever so comfortable.

Dr. Torbati provide the best dental experience I have ever had. I honestly have never had a better dentist in my entire life – and I’m picky! I’m writing this review after being in her office 3 times. I had a bunch of cavities filled and she provided costs in advance so there were no surprises. I barely felt anything too which is always welcomed! Dr. Torbati spends a lot of time with her patients and you never feel like she is rushing to move onto the next person. Honestly, I’ve never had this much face time with my dentist – I can’t even tell you my last dentist’s name! I feel like she genuinely cares about the long term care of my teeth and took the time to talk to me about my concerns. I highly recommend checking out the office!

Miguel H. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


This was the first time I’ve ever felt safe at the dentist and I’ve been to many different places. I’ve come from many bad experiences from having cotton bits left inside my gums after having them stitched causing a bad infection to dealing with horrible staff members. The dentists here and the team made the whole experience so warm and welcoming. Although I just came in just to see if I could get my wisdom tooth pulled, I felt completely at ease and happy. Can’t wait to be back for future dental visits.

Matt Y. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


For the first time in my life, I had a great experience going to the dentist. From the moment I walked in, I was welcomed and didn’t have to wait more than a few minutes after checking in. I had told Dr. Torbati about my fear of dentists and she did an excellent job keeping me comfortable and working with me. Very Patient! Already booked my appointment for my next check up and looking forward to seeing her again!

Lev R. from Manhattan, NY (Source: Yelp)

Had an exam today. Was happy with the office. I had already filled out the paper work and got called in right away. After some xrays the doctor came in. She told me I only needed a regular cleaning and no other work. Which was a relief because another office said I needed a deep cleaning. I got my regular cleaning done which was very good and will be back in 6 months!

Eyal M. from Santa Ana, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had been putting off coming to the dentist for so many years.  Lets just be honest I hated the fought of going into the dentist.  But I knew I needed work and could not put it off any longer.  A friend of mine told me about Dr. Torbati.  My experience was very positive.  She was very patient and explained everything I needed.  When we started to work she was so gentle and still so patient.  Step by step she explained to me what she was about to do.  She could see I was nervous and she took extra time.  I would recommend her to anyone that is looking for a quality dentist that also cares.

Sam O. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


Came here to this dental office today because I had ignored my teeth long enough.  I had been putting it off because  I hate going to the dentist.  Its one of those things I never want to do.  Well it was time and yelp lead me to summer smile dental.  I was seen on time and Dr. Torbati is very friendly.  After exam and x-rays I was told I needed a deep cleaning and I had 2 cavities (much better than I thought).  After going over fees I decided to get 1/2 the deep cleaning and 1 cavity today.  Everything went well.  I did not feel the shot at all.  Pretty painless experience.  I will be going back in 1 week to complete the deep cleaning and the other 2 cavities.  I don’t have insurance and I was worried about the cost.  Well their prices were very fair (actually most lower then I expected). The office is nice and clean.  Overall I was very happy with everything.

Came to this dental practice in South Gate for a second opinion. They offer free exam and x-rays so I figured I have nothing to lose. Dr. Torbati was very informative, even told me I don’t need some treatment another dentist was trying to over charge me for. She went through all my dental needs and explained in detail what I need and what it all meant. This was really helpful since other offices just give you a large bill and tell you to pay up. We were able to start treatment immediately and I felt better right away. They have zero interest payment plans which really helped given that I needed the treatment to get out of pain and won’t need to pay it up front. I’m referring all my family and friend. I know they will all benefit from this place specially since they take all insurances.

I’ve been to several dental offices yet I could never find an office that I felt comfortable and unafraid. From the minute I walked into Summet Dental I felt welcomed. Staff was very polite and very helpful. The procedure was done within a timely manner. The waiting area is clean, they offer water, coffee and toys for kids to play with. While waiting to be seen there was a little kid crying their poor heart out and one of the staff members assisted the child with a balloon and assured them that they weren’t going to hurt them and they were there to help. Sure enough with the tone she used the child stopped crying. It melted my heart! I will definitely be back and I highly recommend summer smile dental. MY mouth has found a new home.

Dr. Torbati has made my smile an A+. It is such an emotional experience to go from hiding your mouth to smiling a brilliant smile, and getting compliments on your smile. She and her staff are so comforting. She works quickly and pays attention to detail. If you are unsure about getting going through this life-changing experience, I urge you to go for it, for it truly is life-changing. Thank you Dr. Torbati!

Kam B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


The best dental place ever!!! Reasonable prices, excellent service. Dr. Torbati really knows what she’s doing!!! I highly recommend them, and I will be definitely going back. I saved $375 by going to summer smile dental, and got better service. if you are searching for a great dental place you should definitely pay them a visit.

OMG! Finally found a pain free dentist. Dr Torbati at summer smile dental is the best dentist. I’ve searched for a long time for a dentist that is honest caring and of course pain free. the dentist here has it all and more. The team is very professional and caring and kind. So glad they are close to me in South Gate. Thank you

I’ve came here for a cleaning and let me tell you they made me feel so comfortable in a place that honestly makes me feel anxious, they made it easy for me. PLUS I came here because my tooth was chipped and they told me to come in as soon as I told them and the dentist fixed it while the whole time making sure that I was comfortable and not in pain, other dentists want to get you in and then out, but here they want you to be happy and comfortable with the results. Highly recommend!!!

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


I went to Summer Smile because it was close by to my work and they were able to fit me in during an extended lunch break. Little did I know how great a dentist’s office can be. I hadn’t gone to see a dentist for a while and my wisdom tooth was killing me. The front staff got me through the paperwork quickly and I was able to see the doctor ASAP. She pulled that tooth painlessly and I was back to work in no time!  Now I’m setup for a check up in six months, and I’m not going skip it. That sucker really hurt until she pulled it out!

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


Got 2 implants placed here.  Not complaints.  Everything went smoothly and surprisingly pain free.  Very happy with the dentist and the staff.  Will be getting 2 more placed shortly.  Very affordable.  Turned out I needed bone after the extraction and they just did it for free. Something I know another office would charge $500 plus for it.  They don’t try to sell something and than add things on down the line. Couldn’t be happier.  Thank you dr torbati.

Anthony F. from South Gate, CA (Source: Yelp)


I purchased a groupon for a deep cleaning.  Since I knew that these offices use sites like groupon to attract new patients (and that they don’t make much on the deal itself) I was a little afraid that they would half a## my cleaning but I was very wrong.  The doctor was very thorough.  Took her time and was gentle.  I did not feel like she rushed through it at all.  IT was the BEST teeth cleaning I have ever had.  I hadn’t been to the dentist for years so the free exam and X-rays told me where i stand with my teeth.  I have 2 cavities and thats it.  She did not try to sell me on these.  She simple told me I have them and when I asked can it wait 2 months when I get my  dental insurance she said yes.  Overall very impressed.  I will be coming back to see her.  Thank you Dr. Torbati.

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


Oh my Jesus I hate going to the dentist. I’ve been procrastinating on getting my cavities checked out (surprise, surprise) but a friend recommended me to summer smile dental since my teeth have been hurting lately (4/10 on a scale of 1-10). I called ahead to verify that they accepted my insurance and the receptionist was very friendly and made a same day appt (10am). I took the metro and quickly located the office. 15 mins of filling out forms later, Dr. Torbati took me into her office and explained the process to me: they were gonna take an X ray to check out my teeth, identify the problem, and discuss treatment options. Her confidence and sensitivity to my pain eased my nervousness. Going into it I knew I had a few cavities and after the X ray, Dr. Torbati found the one causing me the most grief and told me my treatment options. It felt like she was genuinely concerned about my well being and the 1-on-1 attention made me feel safe enough by that point to get the cavity handled the same day. The whole procedure took maybe an hour and the pain level was between 0.5-1 out of 10. Mostly my jaw hurt from keeping it open but no pain from the procedure itself (+3). I’ve been to some dentists where the pain from treatment was equal to or worse than the pain from the actual problem so the fact that there was hardly any pain with Dr. Torbati pretty much blew me out of the water; I feel much more secure about returning for the rest of my cavities. Plus, the treatment was surprisingly affordable considering the quality of care I received. My SO sees a dentist on sunset and he tried convincing me to go there at first but while his dentist is good, I’m not about to pay the cost of a used car on my teeth (it is sunset, after all). Overall I’m really satisfied with the price, service and attention from this clinic and will for sure be returning.

I arrived early and was seen right away. The doctor was very thorough and really explained everything to me well. I knew I had alot of work and she was good at placing things in order of importance so I have a game plan. I got my deep cleaning done today which was surprising painless and I have to say the best cleaning I have ever gotten at a dental office. The staff were very friendly. I was able to put my treatment on a payment plan which made it easier to get the needed work done. I will recommend them to my friends and family.

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


First let me tell you I have sensitive teeth as F**k. The last 6 years I haven’t been to a single dentist who know how to handle my teeth (more importantly my gums) with care. Every experience up until now has been a horrible, painful one. A friend recommended this place to me so I looked them up on Yelp and decided to give them a try. So I get there and I’m sitting in the chair when the cute little dentist tells me “you need a root canal.” I’m thinking “only one.” Normally I would have pushed it off again but I was in so much pain I had to do it. If I knew that I would have barely felt anything I would have gotten my teeth fixed a LOOOOOOOOOONG time ago. Needless to say this totally changed my perception on dentists.

Maz E. from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best DENTIST ever! Dr. T was very nice as I hate going to the dentist. I’ve always feared the the dentist as i have had bad experiences 🙁 I planned on having my teeth X-rayed and examination. They were nice enough to do a cleaning on me the same day. She did not hurt me at all. She removed all the hard tarter stuff under my gums. I can’t take too much time off of work so I’m really glad they were able to fit me in. I didn’t think i had any cavities… 🙁 she took digital xrays of my mouth and showed me on the computer monitor my cavities. My previous dentist did not detect them. I’m going in the office in two wks for get two filling 🙂 Looking forward to seeing the friendly staff 🙂

Ben K. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Summer Smile Dental is not your typical Dental office.  The staff are incredibly respectful and they work around the clock to work with your schedule.  The work quality is amazing and truly painless.  The Dentist did an amazing job explaining the issue to me and they did a perfect job.  I am very glad to have found this dental office for my family.

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


Best cleaning  & prices ever.  I had been told by another office that I needed a $1300 deep cleaning without the explanation. So, I found Dr. T online and she gave me an appointment with her hygienist Della and charged me 1/3  of what the first office quoted. NO hidden fees. Della was very professional , gentle and thorough and took her time. Before she started the cleaning she helped me understand why I needed a deep cleaning with pictures and videos and after the appointment she thought me how to brush and floss the right way. I highly recommend this office.

I liked that they gave my 2 year old a break when the De seen that he was a little nervous I took him outside to play with the toys they have there and when They called him he was cooperating just great also my friend told me they didn’t let her go in when they did the fillings on her daughter,I was there the whole time with my son!

Doris T. from Beverly Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t know why it took me so long to write this.  I have been seeing dr. Torbati for over 5 years now and i am very happy with her office.  First off, she is an exceptional dentist.  She is very gentle and thorough.  She is very personable and always makes you feel at home.  Over the past 5 years she had done several different fillings, and I root canal.  I am always happy with her work.  What I really like is that as she is working she always explains what she is  about to do and how I am going to feel.  And it’s always painless.   I have referred several friends and family.
