I’m writing this review immediately after having my top two wisdom teeth extracted. dr rafi had my teeth out in 30 min or less with zero pain! The only pinch was the Novocaine in the beginning which is totally normal even with just a cavity. Every one in this office is so kind and truly care for you. Feels like family! Five STARS awesome first time experience definitely recommend especially for wisdom teeth! Janett is so sweet! The office is so clean! Thanks guys!

I have been going to Sunset Dental since I moved to L.A. 8 years ago. I highly recommended this office to to anyone looking for excellent dental care. I personally have friends and my future husband going to this office. Dr. Poneh and the entire staff at Sunset Dental are incredibly professional, warm, informative and accommodating.

I LOVE IT HERE!!! I love and work downtown. So when it came time for me to find a dentist, I, of course, started my search there. I had a terrifying experience and was desperate for a new doctor. I was then referred to the Sunset Plaza Dental where I made an appointment the very next day. After my first experience, I walked in extremely nervous and not knowing what to expect. It was perfect. Everything was clean, extremely lovely staff, highly knowledgable doctors, state of the art technology, full transparency in every detail, and did I say clean. Sunset Plaza Dental was amazing. Best part is, they have a tv in front of every chair so I can zone out. Perfection!!

I had a bad experience as a child with our dentist. For that reason, I did not go often enough as an adult which caused me to have issues with my oral health. Sunset Plaza Dental is the first office that I have been to (I am over 50) that has made me feel at ease with no judgement. The dentists and the staff are great. I feel at ease (which says a lot) and do not feel like they are recommending procedures that do not need to be done. I have had some significant work done and they are compassionate and patient.  I wish I had gone to them sooner.

Hi. This is a pleasant place to be, even though it’s (shudder) a dental office. Everyone from the front desk to the treatment chair is kind, easygoing, and thoroughly professional in every way as they move you through diagnostics and care. They’re great communicators and have inspired me to up my game after a lifetime of thinking my good old brush and floss routine was doing the job. It may sound odd, but my teeth and gums feel more alive and my exams show a much happier mouth. Cheers!

I’ve been coming here for the past 8 months and couldn’t be more pleased! Have done a deep cleaning, fillings & got a night guard made to help with my grinding. Dr. Poneh even shaped my teeth to help make them look so much prettier since I had tiny little chips in the front from the grinding! Janet it a total gem at the front desk! Highly recommend this place!

I found this office online when I first moved to the area and wanted to take advantage of their new patient special. I had been to 2 other dentists in the past year through Groupon but was very disappointed with their service. The cleanings had been quick and they gave me a list of things that I supposedly needed. To my surprise, the staff at Sunset Plaza were very warm, the exam was done by the doctor who showed me my 2 cavities on the xrays as well as blown up pictures of my teeth. The cleaning was done by a hygienist who was extremely sweet and thorough. They asked me if I wanted any cosmetic work done but I told them that due to finances I can’t at this point, so they understood and unlike the other 2 offices offices, they did not try to push optional treatment. Since I didn’t have insurance, they reduced the fees for the fillings which ended up being 50% less than what I was quoted before. I came back 2 days later and had both cavities done. The doctor was also very gentle and thorough. I’ve since referred 2 of my coworkers and they also have been impressed.

I was so pleasantly surprised to stumble across SPD, as I was blindly trying to find a new dentist for my son and I. We had a bad experience when we first moved here, so I was weary about our chances, as I was also trying to find a dentist that would take my insurance. Everyone there was polite, professional and communicated very clearly. The work was thorough and precise, and the environment was comfortable and clean. Very happy with Sunset Plaza Dental!

Sandy N. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Poneh is THE BEST! I have been going to Sunset Plaza dental for almost 8 years. I have had everything done from  yearly cleanings,  pulling of my  wisdom teeth, rootcanals, fillings, braces, to veneers. It was definitely a long haul, but my teeth are now absolutley gorgeous. Throughout this long process, the staff were always friendly and the doctors absolutley amazing. Its a small practice on Sunset, but  its very clean and a great location if you are local.

David K. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


After moving to Los Angles almost a year ago this month I have finally found “my dentist.” For me looking for a dentist is a hard process because I am very picky when it comes to my teeth. With finding a dentist everything has to be perfect from being greeted, through the exam, to paying. As I entered Sunset I was greeted by Rose who was extremely kind. I checked in and it felt as though everyone there truely wanted to get to know me. Meeting the doctor is of course the most importart part of the entire process and I was delited to meet Dr. Poneh. She is kind and very knowledgeable in her field. What I like the most about Sunset is that all the professionals there have specific duites so that they can focus on perfecting their own craft and becoming excellent at it. They were able to take my insurance which is always nice :-).  I’m glad that Dr. Poneh and her staff made finding my dentist so easy. Awesome work everyone! Thank you.

Such a shame to see any negative reviews — been going here for probably 7-8 years now and I always love the staff & service. Have had everything from wisdom teeth removal, a root canal, fillings & deep cleaning and they’ve always done nothing but take care of me. And all these services were NECESSARY. They’ve never been pushy about anything I didn’t want to do — or that I couldn’t afford. Those comments by people had my jaw on the floor, as I couldn’t imagine a more helpful staff… And frankly, if you really think the staff here is pushy, how do you survive daily life in/around Los Angeles? It’s not hard to just say ‘no’ and discuss a solution — which from experience, they’re more than happy to do! But I think some people just run to YELP and write a nasty review rather than making effort to resolve an issue… Most importantly, Dr. Poneh is a total sweetheart and has helped take care of me even when my insurance was bad — or more recently, non-existent due to financial hardship (literally yesterday!). I’m just sorry some people on here haven’t had the best experience, as mine has always been wonderful. And I promise — nothing scares me more than the dentist. Will happily continue to go to here and I hope, should you be in need of a great dentist you consider Sunset Plaza Dental.

Wilshire Dental Care was excellent from the receptionist to the clinical staff and Dr Alena. They are extremely professional and use state of the art equipment providing an excellent outcome. I am very pleased with the root planing and polishing I received and highly recommend them if you require any dental procedure.

Paul F. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Poneh Ghasri for 5 years now.  She’s gentle, has great bed-side manners, and honest.  I had a bad previous experience with another dental office so now that I’ve moved, I still commute to West Hollywood to see her.  The office is clean and the assistants and the receptionist are always very nice.  They also take my insurance which is very convenient.  Also, they are flexible with my schedule which is a big plus!

Hope W. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been here 4 times over the last few weeks for x-rays, a cleaning, whitening, and 6 new veneers. My teeth are gorgeous now. Dr. Ghasri is amazing at her craft, and all the staff I’ve met are always nice. They remember my name, and I never have to wait for hours to be seen. I am really baffled as to why the only reviews of this place are negative. I guess more people like to complain than praise. I love coming here, and I will continue to go back for check ups and future dental work.

Adam C. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a long time fan/ patient of Dr. Poneh and wanted to check out her digs at Sunset Plaza. This location is small, but it is very well designed. Jared, the assistant, was friendly to me and cracked a few funny jokes. I have to tell you, its so nice to laugh at someone’s jokes because the jokes are funny and not because you just want to be nice to the person. Anyways, Dr. Poneh came in to evaluate my teeth, I had chipped a tooth with a veneer on it. I was worried that I would lose even more of my natural tooth enamel to replace it, but Dr. Poneh took her time with me and was extremely careful to limit any loss. She even provided me a steep discount for the replacement veneer. Dr. Poneh will have me as a patient for life…or until I move out of Southern California.

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


Find one dentist who can extract an impacted wisdom tooth under local anesthesia in less than 30 minutes and have you well enough to not only go to work afterwards but eat a steak that very night ( I didn’t but could have ). I definitely recommend coming here, they’re seriously THAT good.

Allene Q. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to SUNSET PLAZA DENTAL since 2005. They have helped me through Invisaligns, lumineers, fillings, (although I’ve had no fillings for about 8 years since they fluoride-ed my teeth… no more cavities!!)… I’ve always loved Dr. Poneh- but since she’s been away on maternity leave, I’ve had DR. BASERI who is really great. He’s talked me into the water pic, which I have bought and INTEND TO USE ASAP, and he has taken great care of my teeth by applying antibiotics in areas where my gums are acting up… He always advises me in ways that have improved the health of my teeth and gums and cleanings by him and his assistants are always thorough. I HIGHLY recommend this office. The gals who work in the reception are always sweet as well.

Paulina A. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I moved to LA from San Diego and needed a new dentist. I had been seeing the same dentist for years but would usually just see the hygienist and the doctor would come in to do a quick exam. During my first visit I had xrays taken. I was impressed by the fact that they have digital xrays that can be blown up and seen on a screen (plus much less radiation than conventional X-rays). They also take pictures of your teeth during the first exam and show them to you on a screen so you can see for yourself what the issues are. Dr Poneh showed me 2 cavities on the X-rays as well as on the pictures. She showed me that one of them was small but the other one was relatively large. I was shocked that my previous dentist had not seen them. She had no problem emailing me the xrays as well as the pictures which I forwarded to my dentist in San Diego. He agrees that there in fact were cavities and that they had been missed 6 months before. I usually don’t trust people including doctors and like to see evidence and get second opinions to confirm the diagnoses. I like that this office has the equipment and the desire and confidence to provide you with all the evidence that you need.

I’ve been going here for 5 years. The entire staff is awesome. They take such good care of me and my teeth. They are so nice and friendly. And they always talk with me about the best procedures to keep my teeth healthy. I honestly can’t recommend this place enough. Also they have validated parking which is key.

Mary R. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I chose Dr. Poneh at Sunset Plaza Dental for my Invisalign after interviewing several other dentists. I’m really happy with the results and have since had other procedures done. Dr. Poneh is very serious about her work and she listens carefully to your concerns–exactly how you want your dentist to be. The staff is also wonderful, Janett at the front desk and hygienist Zara. Thank you, Dr. Poneh!

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


It takes me such a long time reading through reviews because you never know if people are just crazy when they write bad ones or if the people who write good ones are just friends of the staff. Look no further, the dentists at sunset plaza dental are so professional and gentle. It is the first time I have found a dentist I enjoy going to and look forward to seeing. The lady who is at the front desk is the sweetest person and so accommodating. Big thank you for taking such good care of me 🙂

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


I am consistently impressed with the level of service provided at this clinic! Janette is so awesome and accommodating. Thank you so much for making my dental life easier! I must tell you how great my dental hygienist, Zara is!! I’m sure I spelled her name wrong, but it’s pronounced similar to the clothing store, Zara! Nonetheless, she is a ROCKSTAR!! She is patient, genital, and very skilled! It’s been a very long time since I’ve been able to smile with confidence! Dr. Afar, and Sunset Plaza Dental is responsible for this smile. It’s a true Hollywood smile and if you’re searching for the right team to get your Hollywood smile, take a look at my picture and look no further!!! Sunset Plaza Dental is the place to visit!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I got a great cleaning from Tanaz at this office yesterday. I have braces at the moment so it’s a challenge to keep them clean and stain-free. She did a fantastic job and I’m very pleased, will be requesting her specifically for all of my future cleanings. Not sure I’ve ever received such a thorough cleaning!

Andrew Goodwin (Source: Google)


Very professional service, the staff were nice and polite. The dentist put me at ease about my treatment (I am a nervous patient). Procedures and costs were fully explained to me before any work was carried out. My clean and polish was excellent, leaving me with the brightest teeth I have had in years!

Claire V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just got the Aetna dental insurance and came to this dentist because it was covered and close to my work. Being new to LA I had no idea where to go or what to expect. It was a very nice, clean and friendly office located in the Sunset Plaza. The receptionist was very nice and helpful over the phone and when I got to the office. I saw Lisa the hygienist, she was very patient with me since I’m a weary patient and was asking a lot of questions. I ended up getting a laser cleaning because I have receding gums 🙁 it was very easy and took 5 minutes, but did cost $200, which apparently isn’t too much compared to other dentist offices. Then the dentist came in and she was really sweet and patient too. Didn’t have to wait long in the waiting room and it was overall a good experience!

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


I am very surprised to read the negative reviews. I have seen Dr. Poneh 3x and have nothing negative to say about her nor her office. Let me start by saying I was cursed with bad teeth and have seen many dentists in the past. Before Dr. Poneh I went to a dentist who had to redo a filling so many times that I ended up with a root canal =( I broke a tooth while pregnant and another doctor told me that I could not save it and that my only option was to extract what was left and to get an implant which would cost over 9k I went to Dr. Poneh for a second opinion, she was able to save my tooth by putting a crown. Her work is absolutely AMAZING, even the temporary didn’t fall out. She is great at her craft. I recommend Dr. Poneh 100%. The STAFF is super friendly and will do whatever they can to accommodate you. The PARKING is super easy – which is a total plus. As for the negative reviews: people need to realize that dental work isn’t cheap – you pay for good service and longevity and i am speaking with experience. I highly recommend Sunset Plaza Dental!!

Sina N. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently needed 3 crowns done and thought it was going to be months of work. My old dentist said the whole process would take at least 3-4 visits over a period of 4-6 weeks. I don’t have that kind of time to take off of work. A friend of mine suggested I get a second opinion at Sunset Plaza. I’m so glad I did!! I came in last Tuesday and was here for almost 4 hours, and I came back in today for the crowns. And done! They were so understanding of my work situation that they completely accommodated my schedule. And they did such a great job. Because my teeth are so messed up and colorful, they brought the lab guy in to make a custom color for my crowns!! I’m honestly so grateful and glad I came here. They topped it off with a cleaning and I’m good to go. Bug happy smiles here 🙂 Thank you!!!

As a new Angeleno from Chicago, I was forced to find new everything: doctor, hairdresser, dentist etc…  I decided to try Sunset Plaza Dental because it was conveniently near my work and I’m definitely glad I gave them a shot.  Dr. Poneh is extremely professional while being friendly and super nice!  She found a couple things that needed work, but prioritized them to make them fit within my work schedule AND budget.  Her front desk staff are just as kind; Rose is the best!  They all had patience with me while trying to get my insurance figured out and quoted me very reasonable pricing on everything.  Sunset Plaza Dental and Dr. Poneh are highly recommended in my book!

Klody Mann (Source: Google)


have been a patients of Sunset Plaza Dental for some years now and I have always been treated very nicely. Dr. Ghasri has done several treatments for me, one a root canal, and I am very satisfied with all of them. I definitely recommend this practice.

Tina T. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I have been going to Sunset Plaza Dental for several years now after looking long and hard for someone in the area that was good, honest and personable and Dr. Poneh Ghasri was a great find! She’s got a steady hand for all those sensitive areas and does great work with always keeping the patient in mind. Very nice staff and office env.. as well- we definitely would recommend Sunset Plaza Dental and look forward to going to them for years to come. Plus free parking which is hard to find in Weho!

Sheila Z. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I usually see Dr. Poneh at the Wilshire location, but when I chipped my tooth on a Friday, they told me, she’s at the Sunset office.  The receptionist was very sweet and even though it was a Friday afternoon, they got me in right away.  Dr. Poneh stayed late for me and did a beautiful bonding!  I had a wedding to go to that Saturday night and took lots of pictures smiling!

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


I went to Dr. Poneh Ghasri with a very painful tooth and a fear that a root canal was inevitable. She examined my teeth thoroughly and advised me to wait on the root canal- there was a chance that the swelling would subside. Her competence and  excellent bedside manner put my mind at ease. She saved me money and a painful procedure. I am forever grateful to her!

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


Seriously, the only thing wrong with Sunset Dental is that they don’t encourage more “actual” customers to post Yelp reviews. Look at those negative reviews, lol. Teeth falling out, $6000-11,000 estimates… it’s laughable. What HMO would cover that? What individual would say “yeah, this is a cleaning but let’s pluck down a car instead?” I’ve moved more times in my life than i care to admit, I’ve been to dentists all over the world, Dr. P is by far the most skilled, most sensitive dentist I’ve ever met. Her staff is all smiles, the wait times are brief, the chair side manner is beyond professional. I even elected to get braces after pricing invisilign at 4 other places, they saved me $1500 over the other quotes. You know that sickening feeling you get in the waiting area of a dentist? It’s somehow absent at this place. The energy there is one of calm and peace. I actually felt lucky sitting in the chair last week, with all that can go wrong in the world, to know that i have healthy teeth and gums and good dental care is a remarkable comforting feeling. isn’t that all we really want in this busy, crazy world? to know that someone out there has the professionalism to do their job, do it well and with a smile? Thank you to everyone at the office, I am a customer for life.

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


I have to say Dr. Poneh is spectacular. I have never felt more comfortable in a dentist’s chair — I had four fillings on two occasions and never felt so much as a pinch. i hate needles and have always had a horrible fear of dentists and dental offices….but Dr. Poneh was so gentle and so amazing that i didnt feel more than a tiny pinch! Instead of pushing all the numbing medicine in at once, she gives you a tiny shot of it that you can’t feel at all. I had my eyes closed and didn’t believe she was done whn she said “all done”. No pinch, no poke, no pressure — nothing. i was so completely relaxed. …i almost fell asleep, no joke! The other thing that makes Dr. Poneh so amazing is that she explains everything in plain English in a way that doesn’t talk down to you but really explains what’s going on with your teeth and what she’s going to do next so nothing is a surprise. 5 stars all the way!!!

Adrian S. from Newport Coast, CA (Source: Yelp)


First time here. Used to live in Orange County. Honestly always hesitant to go to the dentist (been burned a few times) but the reviews are correct. They are super (genuinely) friendly and do great work and have been gracious enough to work with me. Also like how they text me reminders of my appointment. Super convenient. Lastly there is 1 hour free parking which is rare in the area. Will defiantly be a customer for life …. or until I move lol.
