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

I’ve been seeing Dr. Dalis for years. I’ve always been treated well and the staff has always been friendly and kind. I have great respect for Dr. Dalis and I think he does great work, he has a sense of humor that puts you at ease, a great chairside manner, and I’ve always been happy. He also stands behind his work and makes sure you’re satisfied. I’ve been to many dentists over the years as I’ve lived all over the country. As far as I’m concerned he and his staff are the best. I now drive from Bakersfield to Torrance just because I think he’s that good and I trust him.

 Dr. Dalis  is amazing dentists that have been treating both my daughter and I for years.  Dr. Dalis is gentle, caring, and attentive to the kids. I would highly recommend him for kids, especially those that are scared or nervous about going to the dentist.  The office staff is amazing and always willing to help. The dental assistants are kind and make the experience fun.

I Have known Dr. Dalis for about a year now, a friend referred me to him. Wow what a difference from the previous Dentist I was using. Dr. Dalis and his staff go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable and well informed before they begin. The equipment they use is state of the art. What impressed me the most is the fact that they put your X-rays on a computer screen that is networked throughout the facility so that the Dentist or Hygienist can access the X-ray and use it to know where to concentrate cleaning or use the X-ray as a tool to explain the issues with your teeth as well as treatment options. Dr. Dalis did not rush me through he took the necessary time to ensure that I knew everything I needed to know. I am so glad that I am a patient of Dr. Dalis.

Dr. Dalis and his team are incredible!!!  It had been 10 years since my last Dr. visit and was so happy Dr. Dalis was recommended.  I received quality care and their expertise with deep cleanings and fillings made it an enjoyable visit each time… plus it never hurt.   Excellent experiences and would highly recommend!

A trusted friend referred me to Thanos And Dallis, a dental office he had been using for years with fantastic results. I made appointment for a cleaning and went a week later. From the time I got there to the time I left it was a great experience. They took the time to explain everything thoroughly and the technology they utilize is state of the art.

By far the best dentist office I’ve ever been in my whole life. The staff is so professional and efficient. They don’t mess around. I couldn’t be happier taking my entire family there. Great atmosphere and positive people there. I definitely recommend them if you have kids. Glad to finally found a place that I feel safe and now I’m getting the best treatment possible. They don’t push products to try to oversell you. They give you the best possible options and allow you to make whatever decision you want.

I have been a happy return customer of Dr. Dalis for some time now and could not be happier with the care that I receive there. Dr. Dalis has great people skills and makes the experience as painless as possible. Some places have treated me as just another account and that why I choose to come here. The hygienist always does a very thorough job and I feel confident that when I complete my six month cleaning and exam that all issues have been addressed.

I found Dr. Dalis through through a friend. My previous dentist retired and I needed to find someone new. I am very happy with Dr. Dalis my teeth look and feel great. The office is state of the art, very clean and a very professional and kind staff.

I’ve been coming to Dr. Dalis (and the pediatric dentist, Dr. Thanos) for many, many years. The staff here is awesome, from Marsha at the reception desk to the hygienists that are friendly, professional, and work throughly to keep your teeth clean. They take many different dental insurances (including Delta PPO, call to confirm what is current) – as well as offering a courtesy discount for customers like myself who pay Cash/Credit Card, without health insurance. I do not shop around for my dental care purely on price. Considering that the facility has clean and sterile instruments, up to date digital imagery x-rays and flat screen displays in the cleaning rooms where the dentist can show you in detail where your issues are, I feel they provide a good value. Usually I schedule appointments for every 4 months, if you do it after your current appointment they will send you a reminder post card you can fill out a few weeks out and usually a phone call as well a few days prior – less of a chance for me with my busy schedule to forget about the upcoming appointment. Overall, I highly recommend Dr. Dalis’ office and I plan on returning in the future.

He went on to attend Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, Pennsylvania as a Fulbright Scholar, one of the highest academic honors a student can earn. In 1971, Dr. Thanos received his dental degree from the University of Athens, Greece. For the next two years he continued advanced studies at the University of London, England where he specialized in pediatric dentistry at the Eastman Dental Hospital. In 1973, Dr. Thanos was a postdoctoral scholar at the UCLA School of Dentistry where he furthered his studies in biomaterials science and pediatric dentistry. He completed his fellowship and received certificates in both pediatric dentistry and cranio-facial genetics at UCLA Harbor Hospital. In 1977, Dr. Thanos joined the faculty of the University of Southern California School of Dentistry. He served as a chairman of the department of Advanced Pediatric Dentistry from 1979 to 1985. During that period, he initiated the Specialized Clinic of Esthetic Dentistry where he served as director until 1992. Dr. Thanos is not only a gifted dentist, he is also a respected scientist in his field and has published numerous research monographs. He is considered a pioneer in the field of esthetic dentistry. He has been participating in the Torrance community for over thirty years.
