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

Shea M. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Jedian’s going on ten years now. Before him, my previous dentist botched a basic filling that eventually led to a double-root canal. After the fun and excitement of that procedure, my former dentist proceeded to lay my crowns wrong which resulted in the further adventure of having them redone twice (they still failed). Dr. Jedian not only corrected the crowns, he’s expertly handled a removal and a tooth implant of mine as well as regular cleanings. Hands down, the best dentist in Los Angeles. Besides that, he’s charming and affable and his bedside manner is second to none (as is his excellent support staff). I cannot rate Dr. Jedian and the team at SmileMakers high enough!

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


Dr Jedian is so incredible! He has amazing bedside manners and is so gentle. What really makes him stand out to me is that he is not looking to drill tons of holes into your teeth when it’s unnecessary. He also always explains what work needs to be done and why in a clear manner. He is meticulous and his work is near and clean. I’m so glad he’s my dentist!!!

Keith I. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I did not go see this Dentist, but I have a situation where I was experiencing pain on the side of a new crown from early January. I was looking to get an appointment for a second opinion since it was unusual to those around me who have had crowns that 1 1/2 months later I would still be experiencing discomfort when I did not have discomfort prior to the crown. Anyway, I was expecting to get the front desk, but instead I got the Dentist. What I found highly unusual was that he took quite a lot of time to listen to my situation and offer some insight and direction with regard to the next steps….which was basically to remain patient unless the area gets worse or does not heal after 6 months. The fact that he was willing to spend the time with me to put my mind at ease when I wasn’t even one of his existing patients was unexpected and deserving of mention here in Yelp. I can’t think of any place that has shown me that type of concern without having an appointment and take time from their schedule to educate me on the fact that a crown can take time to heal even if for most it only takes a couple of days. If things do get worse, there is a good chance I will make an appointment with this Dentist because he obviously cares about his patients.

Dr. Jedian is by far the best of all my prior dentists, staff is very attentive and they provided outstanding customer service, needless to say Dr. Jedian was able to remove a  challenging wisdom tooth with ease he is very gentle making it so much easier to pay a visit to the dentist, he does great work. I been a patient for years the place is very comfortable and clean every visit is been a pleasant experience great job with follow- ups and appointments.

Josh M. from Tarzana, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jedian did an amazing job on my teeth today.  He was helpful with answering many questions that I had regarding maintaining my teeth and home and I didn’t feel like he was pressuring me into buying any products or services that I didn’t need as with other dentist offices I have visited in the path. Definitely will recommend this office to my friends and family.

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


Having a tooth pulled by Dr. Jedian is a painless experience, literally painless.  He has a wonderful bedside manner that instantly relaxes you and makes you feel at ease.  His staff is helpful, friendly and patient.  I recommend Dr. Jedian to anyone who is afraid of the dentist or has had an unpleasant experience at another dentist.

Rachma B. from Glassell Park, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Highly recommended to see this dentist the doctor all the stuff are nice and friendly ,very satisfied with all the work he’s done, make me smile freely and have more confident about my self thank you SmileMakers you the best

Tiffany T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jedian is wonderful. Very skilled, gentle, friendly… To say that he’s my favorite dentist, isn’t enough. As a child I had many cavities and orthodontic issues and learned to loathe going to the dentist. Not any more. Dr. Jedian has a calm demeanor and is friendly without being intrusive. But most importantly, he is very skilled at his job, with a gentle touch and nimble hands. What could be rather painful with another dentist is as smooth and as painless as possible. He is also very thoughtful when it comes to deciding what work needs to be done, and values your input if there’s a decision to be made. I’ve gone through many dentists in the past, and have searched hard to find one as adept as he. I’ve been a loyal patient for 8 years, I believe. Thank you, Dr. Jedian.

YaVonne H. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had a sudden need for a crown and the original dentist i went to wanted about $1200 bucks! So, after some searching, I found Dr. Jedian through yelp and google. The doctor was able to help me figure out why my original dentist wanted  to keep one of my kidneys as payment and was able to offer me a much better option. He saved me about $500 bucks on everything. So far i’ve gotten the tooth build-up and temproary crown. Next is the appointment for the permanent.  All my interactions with Dr. Jedian and his staff have been pleasant. It’s nice to finally find a dentist who doesn’t keep you waiting.

Roddy M. from Valley Village, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Usually when I go to the dentist I feel anxious and a bit nervous. This time it was a totally different experience and very pleasant. With mentioning that I had 1 hour and a half of work done on my teeth as you can imagine, not fun. Doctor shahrokh was very easy going and friendly, you could tell he cares about his patient’s. Why do I say that, because when I was there he was explaining to one of his patients over the phone what needed to be done and how to do it properly. He was very professional and explained everything step by step and the reason for it. unlike other doctors that just imagine you know everything and forget that you may be nervous and want to know everything that is being done to them. So for me I found my dentist for life and highly recommend him to anybody that doesn’t like dentists in general!

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


I wrote my initial 5 star review based on how amazingly kind, caring, and responsive Dr. Jedian was to my complicated dental problems, and how easily and expertly he came up with a workable treatment plan to solve them. That alone is a BIG DEAL. I’d seen 3 dentists before finding Dr. Jedian. The 1st was scary, all ego and bluster, and didn’t even discuss a treatment plan with me! He said it would be emailed to me. It never was. I even called to remind the person in charge of creating it (which wasn’t even him, apparently) and sending it to me, and I STILL never got one. The 2nd said my dental issues were beyond his level of competence to treat (!) and said I needed a prosthodontist for my humongously serious and complicated dental issues. (Is that intense or what?!) The 3rd was the prosthodontist he referred me to. He didn’t explain anything, just slapped me with a $14,000 treatment plan, NONE of which was covered by my dental insurance. When I asked if I could call him if I had any questions once I’d reviewed it, he said “No. I don’t have time for talking on the phone.” Meanwhile the bottom left side of my mouth was starting to ache. SHOOT! What was I going to DO? I went back and pored over the list of providers for my dental plan one more time. I wanted to find a woman dentist this time (these men had shaken me to the core!) I narrowed the search to three- only one was a man. Yet my gut told me to go with him, so I did. Thank GOD! It was Dr. Jedian. When I called, HE was the one who returned my call. When I told him my tale of woe, he LISTENED. He squeezed me into his schedule the very next week. There was no mention at all of how “direly complicated” the work he needed to do was. He easily broke it into segments, laid out how much would be billed to insurance and how much I’d have to pay out of pocket- which was about $4,000, not $14,000! He also guaranteed me that that the amount he quoted would not change, no matter WHAT my insurance company tried to get out of paying. The first segment was most critical–the broken bridge that was already starting to ache– so we scheduled that within a few days. When the pain in my mouth suddenly got worse before then, I called the emergency number given on his voicemail on a Sunday night, and HE answered the phone. The next morning, I was in his office and the broken bridge and the infected tooth beneath it were carefully, gently, removed. Just like that! I could go on. There’s a lot more I could tell you about this wonderful dentist. But this is already really long. In a nutshell, I didn’t think there WERE any dentists like Dr. Jedian in corporate America anymore! And he knows his stuff, by the way. He teaches dentistry part-time at USC. He’s a true healer. THANK YOU, DR. JEDIAN! (I even made him let me take his picture, lol.)

Oz Z. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I really like this Dentist a lot.  He doesn’t try to up sell you like so many other do, and he is very honest.  I went there recently because my old dentist was trying to up sell me on a drug for your gums called Arestin that cost $600!   That of course, my insurance wouldn’t pay, so I had to pay for.  I had a very bad experience with that dentist, so I went to smile makers, and not only did they see for for a FREE to look at my gums, but they told me I DON’T need Arestin, and just a good deep cleaning with flossing is all I needed.  I left there feeling good about my experience, and I highly recommend Dr. Shahrokh Jedian.  He is a good Dentist.

Crista R. from Hempstead, NY (Source: Yelp)


Came here for a cleaning and to get a couple fillings checked out… This was the first time since I was a kid that I went to a dentist that I actually liked!! First off, the office is clean, the staff is polite and professional and the doctor didn’t try to up sell me on anything. He was honest, knowledgable, and genuinely seemed to enjoy doing what he does. My previous dentist in LA had told me I had to have 2 of my filling redone and that I needed to do some sort of covering on the slight abfractions that I have from braces from my teen years. Great dentist, and great staff. Happy a friend referred me.   P.s. They’re in network with blue shield!

David L. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is one of the few times I feel compelled to leave a review. Enough favorable things cannot be said about this dental practice & Dr. Jedian. Rating broken down by categories: Staff: The front desk staff is extremely courteous and help ensure a smooth visit from start to finish. Doctor’s Competence: Dr. Jedian is both confident and attentive with his patients. You know you are in good hands when he speaks. He is methodical and thorough but with ease and finesse. Cleanliness:The reception area is tidy & clean as are the patient rooms. Everything sparkles which is great given that the tools are destined for your mouth. Technology: Smile Makers Dentistry blows away the competition. Their use of email, text & phone calls for appointment booking and reminders is first class. 5 Stars Dr. Jedian & his friendly staff have established a clean and efficient environment for your dental matters. I endorse him to all co-workers and friends who live in the area and now to you. If you need a good dentist, try the SmileMakers, you will be happy you did.

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


Dr. Jedian by far one the BEST dentists I have ever met. Besides the knowledge, he is brilliant in how he performs every aspect of dentistry. I finally did my 3rd & final bridge with this awesome dentist & I’m finally revealed of all pain & discomfort. So grateful to have found him.  Also the staff is so friendly & professional.

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


Have been going to Dr. Jedian since I moved from NYC 4 years ago. Have never had problem getting an appointment. The staff is always very friendly and helpful. Appointments never take longer than they should (I’ve always been bothered by other dentists that keep you waiting a long time.) Dr. Jedian is always very kind, informative and professional. I’ve had cavities filled, crowns placed, and standard cleaning and have been satisfied and happy with all results. Also, I like the fact that Dr. Jedian is also a professor at the USC school of Dentistry. Being a teacher means he’s also learning and on the forefront of new discoveries and innovations in the field.

Yossi G. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


My experience with Dr Jedian has been a delight, I had lots of work done here. To be exact, i had 5 cavity fillings , 3 crowns and a root canal done here.  Everytime i walked into the office I was checked within just a few minutes, and every time I walked out I was happy for not going to another dentist. The crowns that were placed on my teeth feel 100%  natural, un-noticeable, and perfectly aligned.  I would highly recommend this office to anyone looking for a great dentist.

Sherice B. from Pearblossom, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a similar story to everyone on this page. Bad past experiences, broken trust, Dentists trying to upsell me into everything under the sun (I literally haven’t been back to a Dentist in almost 10 years). Not with Dr. Jedian. I explained my past experiences and he took every precaution to be straightforward and forthcoming with me. I also have a hard time responding to lidocaine, so he made sure that I was fully numb before starting the procedure to repair a filling that had broken from a previous Dentist’s work. I liked him and his staff so much that I already pre-scheduled two additional appointments for deep cleaning and an extraction that I need. Thank you Dr. Jedian and can’t wait to come back and get these procedures done that I so desperately need. I would definitely recommend them.

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


Dr.Jedian is amazing Dentist , he is the best dentist I ever known , very high educated and gentle have very professional technology  ,Highly recommended. His office is the Best in All Los Angeles . Big thank you for the office staff  and medical staff working in the office amazing people that handling you from the beginning as soon as you step in his office.

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


Dr. Shahrokh Jedian is a true Smile Maker! As an actor my teeth are incredibly important, but like most of the characters I play, my smile needs to be real. It took me a long time to find a dentist in LA who I could trust and depend on. Although I initially thought the business name seemed a little Disney, “Smile Makers” is exactly what this business does! Not only did Dr. Jedian restore my smile, he saved it, and renewed my trust in his profession! He is a consummate professional whose attention to detail is of such a high accord, I call his work art! He has a gentle genuine demeanor and his environment is always clean and friendly. There’s a reason why his awesome receptionist, Kinesha has been with him for 20 years, and also why he is a USC Professor of Dentistry; Dr. Shahrokh Jedian is as good as it gets! Not only is he an outstanding dentist, he is an outstanding human being who genuinely cares about what he does and about his patients! Two big fat thumbs up!

José T. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I called to see if they had an opening and they said they could take me right away. The staff was very nice, especially Dr. Jedian. I felt like he actually cared, which is rare for dentists in LA. He took his time examining my mouth and was able to figure out what was wrong. He explained the issue in a clear, concise manner and prescribed some very effective medication. My mouth improved right away. Thanks, Dr. Jedian!

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


Hands down, Dr. Jedian is the best dentist you can ever find. Their motto of being honest, gentle and caring is 100% true. I can’t explain how grateful I am to have found Smile Makers and I refer them to anyone I know. I’ve had several bad experiences before with other dental offices, struggling to get quote, X-Rays and insurance codes, but once I contacted this office, everything went so smooth. Dr. Jedian was so caring that he personally guided me through everything once I called his office! Due to my broken trust of my past experiences, I was so hesitant this time as well , but they definitely regained my trust and I believe in Smile Makers as the best dental office. They provided me with everything I asked such as insurance codes and pricing in a very professional and respectful manner. Dr. Jedian finished all my dental work in exactly 3 sessions as he promised, even though I had a lot of dental work to be done. I feel happier than ever about my teeth, and I can’t express how lucky I am to find them. Thanks again Dr. Jedian! You and your team are amazing! Mersy!

Jasmina V. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love Dr. Jedian. He is honest, professional and very tender. I have been to many Dentists in the past and was always quoted ridiculously high amounts for simple procedures. But Dr. Jedian gives me all my options and tells me honestly if something isn’t necessary. His prices are extremely affordable and fair. I wouldn’t go anywhere else for my dental needs and recommend SmileMakers to all my friends and family as well.

Jay E. from Pasadena, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jedian is truly an amazing dentist. I wish there were more of them out there. He does excellent quality work. His staff is amazing too. Always on schedule and quick so you can get back to your day. Highly recommend!

Bobby V. from Hacienda Heights, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is great! The staff is amazaing, specifically Melissa. She is knowledgeable and helpfull. She was able to answer all my questions and get me in as soon as possible. Lastly Dr Jedian was incredible. I walked out feeling confident with my new smile! Thank you so much SnileMakers!! Will deff be coming back and recommending to all my family and friends.

Roger C. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Great experience, great people! Melissa A. was awesome. She helped me out and her positive vibes just flows through out. Dr. Jedian was great, very professional and knows what he is doing. I’ll definitely keep coming back, they have a new customer for good

Crys R. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a current patient at smile makers, I cannot express how great my experience has been. All the staff is very friendly the receptionist Melissa is really tentative and makes sure to call and remind me of all appointments. The dr does great work he makes sure I am at ease for all procedures I tend to be really nervous but every time I come in they make me feel comfortable. Highly recommend this dental office. 5 star experience every time I visit.

Mike S. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Jedian by my friend. I haven’t been to a dentist in years and being a smoker my teeth were in need of a DEEP cleaning. After two visits my teeth were shining like I never thought they could. He didn’t use any blazers of bleach just a propped cleaning. Dr. Jedian is cool guy who seemed to know what hes talking about, I would refer him to anyone who is looking for a new dentist.

J. H. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Jedian is THE best. Still. I got lucky and found this Professor of USC dentistry who takes my insurance and leaves me with the sense that my dental health is being looked after by a man (nay; a dental wizard) at the peak of his skills. Even more shocking is his great gift of brilliant bedside manner. I wish all medical providers would follow his example. Thank you and your staff (Michelle and Kinesha) for all your many kindnesses. It is not unappreciated.

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


Dr. Jedian recently made and implant for me. It’s a great fit and It feels like one of my own natural teeth! I’d had a huge recurring problem with my previous dentist and was very anxious about the implant. Dr. Jedian has a great team of periodontist and maxillofacial Drs he works with who are magnificent! His office staff is equally professional. I feel very lucky to have found this wonderful professional and caring dentist. Thank You

P. J. from St. Petersburg, FL (Source: Yelp)


I went here to get a second opinion. My insurance sent me to Bright Now Dental and I was very unhappy with their service. But when I came here I was throughly pleased. Dr. Jedian was both very professional and very personable. I am glad I found this office. I would highly recommend him.

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


I was soooo afraid to go to the dentist because I knew I needed a lot of work and had bad experiences in the past.  Dr Jedian was AMAZING from the moment I met him and he immediately put me at ease with his calm yet funny demeanor.  I saw him 5-6 times over 2 months and every time I left I felt like it was no big deal.  I had a cleaning, a few cavities filled, and two crowns….all which was a breeze.  If I knew it would have been this easy and painless I wouldn’t have waited so long to make a dentist appt.  I strongly recommend him and Maria ESPECIALLY if you are a scaredy cat like me.  Im a kindergarten teacher and could hear him working on children before my appt and this was a huge plus because I could hear how patient his was with them.  If you have any concerns or reluctant to see a dentist this is the place to go.  Thanks again

Caryn R. from Palos Verdes Peninsula, CA (Source: Yelp)


There aren’t enough stars to give Dr. Jeddian and his staff!!  My 89 year old mom hadn’t had any dental care in years and was terrified of going to the dentist.  I chose this office for her based on the great reviews.  Everyone raves about The Smilemakers…and for good reason! Dr Jeddian is fantastic, patient and kind and put my mom at ease from the moment she met him. He carefully explained that she needed done and helped us make the right decisions based on what would be best for her.  He even managed to make her laugh during her small feat for my frightened mama! 🙂  Everyone that works here is wonderful.  Dalia at the front desk actually walked my mom out to a taxi on one of her visits and then called me to let me know she was ok because she knew I was concerned about her. I am so impressed with Dr. Jeddian and every aspect of this dental office that I am planning on coming here myself even though I live over an hour away.  If you are looking for an amazing dentist…this is the place to go!

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


I hate going to the dentist because it often hurts and dentists are not known for their bedside manner, but Dr. Jedian and his staff were kind and reassuring throughout and made my experience very positive. I really needed that and I’m very grateful for it. He will be my dentist from now on.

I received my Doctor of Dental Surgery degree from University of Southern California (USC) in 2003. Upon graduation in 2003, I joined the faculty at the USC School of Dentistry and currently teach there as a part-time faculty. I've been married since 2006 and my wife and I have three beautiful children. When I'm not working I enjoy playing basketball and spending time with my family.
