I just moved to L.A and my back molar  broke and  had no insurance.  I always had A very bad experience with Dentist and was sacred to death but once I knew I had to go in for my molar I found Tender dentist on yelp and saw amazing reviews so I gave it a shot and made an appointment.  I went in and the whole staffed was sooo welcoming and so friendly !! They made me feel like they were my friends 🙂 The Doctor made me feel so comfortable and he knew I was so nervous so he took the time to talk to me and clam me down . He even played my favorite music during my exam 🙂 I’ll definitely be going back for more services ! I never been so excited about  telling my friends and family about an amazing experience I had at the dentist 🙂 Thank you tender dentist !!!

Just moved to the area (Calabasas) and spent some time researching dentists in the area as I was due for a routine teeth cleaning. I saw all of the great reviews for The Tender Dentist and decided to give them a shot. To get to the point — I’m very glad that I did! The office staff was friendly & professional in scheduling via txt. I received txt reminders leading up the appointment date. During my visit they used a low-radiation device for my XRays and his staff was very friendly and professional. Anna their hygienist was was super knowledgeable, patient with all of my questions, and didn’t me feel like she was rushing my cleaning (have had that experience at other dental offices in the past). Fortunately I didn’t have any issues with my teeth, but I still met Dr. Rostamian at the end to discuss my experience and two things stood out to me — you can tell this guy is very knowledgeable and he clearly loves his job. Really glad I found these guys and feel confident they’ll take good care of me if any dental issues arise in the future.

Thank you so much to The Tender Dentist Family! I rarely have anxiety in my life, however, I sadly developed this fear of dental work.  I avoided the dentist for two years and then I noticed some decay in one of my molars.  I knew it was time to saddle up and brave my fears. I came across The Tender Dentist on a yelp search and just loved Dr. Rostamian’s philosophy and website.  Sure enough the experience was better than I had imagined!  The office is beautiful, warm and welcoming as well as the staff! Doctor Rostamian was so gentle in his approach, so sweet and positive. Their rates are fair and affordable and I feel so blessed to have found this awesome team!! Mahalo so very much for your tender, beautiful & loving work!! The name fits!

Dr. Rostamian is the best!! He really cares about his patients and you feel comfortable with him. His office is so wonderful, clean and it is such a welcoming environment. So happy that I have found the Tender Dentist! Definitely recommending him to all my friends. THE BEST!

I love this dentist, he’s laid back but very knowledgeable and takes his time talking to you and answering questions. The dental assistant and office manager are very nice and helpful too. It’s a very warm and welcoming office and you’re always greeted with smiling, friendly faces. Their communication is great, billing is straightforward and you’re usually in and out of there quickly with no waiting. I’m so happy I found The Tender Dentist.

I had to find a new dentist for insurance purposes and after reading reviews on Google and Yelp, I decided on Dr. Rostamian. What a great choice! The doc and his staff were very friendly, genuine and honest. The doc was as advertised, tender with my procedure and walked me through and explained everything step by step. I highly recommend Tender Dentist! I’ll be going here for years.

Monet B. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

Tender is right! I am terrified of going to the Dentist. I dreaded even the teeth cleaning because my teeth are sooo sensitive and it hurt! So I wanted to find a Dentist that was more gentle so i can handle a teeth cleaning and here is where I found Tender Dentist. NO pain! Dr Shahen is the only Dentist I have met that would only use that pick and not that drill to clean my teeth. I was so thankful he took the time and so much care to ease my fear. Dr Shahen and Mirna really make you feel so comfortable and at ease. Thank you! Thank you!

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

★★★★★

Dr. Rostamian, you are the absolute best!!! Thank you so much for taking me in last minute and taking care of me. Your staff is young, energetic and wonderful. I didn’t even feel the time pass. My cleaning was efficient and quick. I’m so happy that I finally took the leap to switch dentists!! Totally worth it as I will be coming back here again. As you all know, I’m a perfectionist when it comes to my teeth and Dr. Rostamian understands. In the paperwork they ask you what genre of music you like so they could play it in the background… loved it! 🙂 PS – Parking was really easy and in the back.

★★★★★

I know people don’t ever say this, but I really enjoyed my visit to the dentist! Not only was the staff welcoming, friendly and professional but they were also fun and so genuine! I came in for a cleaning and x-rays and Dr. Rostamian was very gentle and informative, always making sure I was doing okay. I also really appreciated his honesty as well as his fun personality. He asked what music I liked and played Sza for me during my teeth cleaning!!! that was fun! The Tender Dentist is great! I give it all the likes! all the thumbs up and all the stars!

★★★★★

Can’t say enough great things about the tender dentist! Dr. R and Anna are fantastic at their job and really lovely people. Anna ever saw my son (free of cost!) for his first dental visit and she was  incredibly kind and gentle with him. The office is  always clean and the staff is courteous and helpful. It just has a great atmosphere that makes you feel safe and at home. I will never go to another dentiSt again!! (Also the prices are great) thanks team TTD!

The Tenderest Dentist, Dr. Rostamian the best I have ever experienced. Him & his Staff put the Faith back into me. Trying to save your teeth instead of making money replacing your teeth here. I appreciated his honesty, too. I recommend The Tender Dentist!!!!

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

★★★★★

I am so happy to say that, after years jumping from one dentist to another, I have finally found a dentist I am going to stick with. Dr. Rostamian and his staff are wonderful! Mirna made the appointment process simple and swift. Dr. Rostamian is a fantastic dentist – humble, down-to-earth and talented. It is very evident how passionate he is about his job and ensuring his patients are healthy and happy. As soon as you enter the exam room, they have Google play your favorite music – great way to relax nervous patients. Also, the lavender scented hot towels at the end were a major plus! I love anything lavender scented.

The doctor is awesome. Genuinely cares about every person he sees. Extremely knowledgeable and wise. My girlfriend recommended one of our friends and she loved her experience also so I gave them a shot. I hate going to the dentist as much as anyone else but they make it a great experience at The Tender Dentist!

This is the best dental office I have experienced in my life. My family attends regular visits, and each time we feel personally welcomed – never like a number. We are treated respectfully and never have to be concerned about protecting ourselves against unwanted treatments or chemical exposure. I love that we can all (3) be scheduled in the same time block, but still be in and out within an hour or so. Their sue of technology is a benefit as well. We typically communicate by text, which saves time and hassle, and provides reminders that I can quickly access. Even with cancellations or reschedules, I never feel hassled. It’s quick, efficient, service with a smile throughout the staff, and we couldn’t ask for more.

LOVE THIS PLACE! Today was my first time at Dr. Rostamian’s office and it was nothing but jokes and smiles! I found them on Yelp and I’m so glad I did. The staff is super friendly. And he is very knowledgeable and wants nothing but the best for you. I would recommend this place to anyone in a heart beat. Thank you again!!!! 🙂

Dr. Rostamian took over my old dentists’ office not too long ago. I was nervous to have a new dentist but when I came in for an emergency tooth ache today he knew instantly what the problem was and he was even able to do a small procedure on the spot that gave my aching tooth some relief. I came in during covid-19 and they took a lot of precautions including taking my temp, asking me to wash my hands multiple times and all staff had masks and gloves on. I felt safe. His staff is very helpful professional and sweet. Carmina really took the time to teach me how to properly floss and gave me a lot of helpful tips. Great first time visit. I will be bringing my son in next!

Don is so awesome, the staff here are extremely caring. DR.R is very genuine and patient, and puts alot of timing into explaining options and expectations of the varied procedures. 10/10. Im no longer afraid of the dentist. They got me in immediately after my primary Dr. turned me away. So grateful

This was my first experience with this dentist. I had broken a rear molar a few days ago with a mercury filling and my dentist was not available. So I decided to go and drive to The Tender Dentist and give him a try. I had an 8:30 AM appointment and within a few hours, I had my permanent crown in place. This is my third crown and this one feels like the perfect fit on the first visit. Amazing! Pain management was excellent as I have a few very sensitive teeth. Dr. Rostamian was patient and worked to help relieve my pain. He was constantly speaking to me to judge any discomfort and doing all he could to alleviate it. As his business is called ‘The Tender Dentist’ you can imagine this is of importance to him and it showed. Mercury gas management was also excellent using a gas vacuum to reduce mercury vapor inhalation during the removal of my old filling. In fact, Dr. Rostamian prefers never to use a mercury amalgam to fill cavities and uses alternate filling material that is less-toxic. He would even have me hold my breath for a moment when the procedure would cause a possible exposure. I had a full set of x-rays using his new equipment that reduces exposure to about 5% of what I was using before.  The assistants did not even have to leave the room during exposures. The digital images were promptly displayed on a large screen in front of me. The equipment all seemed to be state-of-the-art or nearly so. The fun part was watching my crown be created right in front of my eyes. That was amazing to watch. The real attribute that I saw in Dr. Rostamian’s work was his experience with his equipment. This means much more than the equipment itself. If you have a high tech piece of equipment but don’t have the experience to use it properly then you will have a sub-par result.  Dr. Rostamian has spent over 7 years using this crown crafting machine. Which is, in my opinion, half high tech and half art. It’s not the tool, but the craftsman that makes the greatest difference. If my initial experience is any indication you will be well treated with the very best equipment by a very kind and skilled dentist.Highly Recommended.

I live in Pa and my son recently moved to Ca and had a wisdom tooth crack. I found the office online, read reviews, and hoped it wasn’t too good to be true! They were very kind to speak with and got him in very quickly. He is extremely anxious when going to the dentist but called me after the tooth was removed and said it was the best place he’s ever been to! They made him feel very comfortable and at ease. He will definitely be going back!!

The Tender Dentist aka Dr. Rostamian and the entire staff are great. Dr. R listens to your concerns, is patient, answers all questions and truly cares about your teeth and loves his job. Anna is an amazing hygienist and very friendly. When first starting at Tender, my gums were swollen and in bad shape. Dr. R told me to get a Waterpik and it made a dramatic difference. He recently filled a cavity for me and only numbed a small area whereas my previous dentist would numb practically half of my face. Come see Dr. R for the personal attention you deserve. Don’t be scared!

If you are looking for a good dentist that has excellent customer service this is the place to go. Dr. R is beyond great at what he does. He is also very honest which is something I always appreciate. Their staff is so friendly and make you feel like family. I love everything about this place.

I am soooo happy with my experience here at the new Sunland office! I was so nervous because my experience with dentists have always left me with a unpleasant impression. Straight up scheme artists doing more work then necessary and its pretty traumatizing to me. Dr. Rostamian is not that! He is honest, kind and funny. Totally down to earth. His team, Dawn and Carmenita, are wonderful, caring, and easy to talk too. I didn’t feel a thing during the numbing procedure and I was able to relax the whole time. So grateful to have found him!

Dr. Shahen Rostamian is the best. I was impressed with the cleanliness and modern outlook of the office. The doctor and staff were very friendly, polite, knowledgeable, helpful and worked well together. There was a very peaceful and tender caring spirit in the office. It definitely is a place with the “Tender Dentist” heading up the office.

I LOVE this dentist! They treat you like family and truly care about helping you. I had broken my front tooth yesterday and my boyfriend recommended seeing the dentist that fixed his tooth earlier that week. I called them, hesitant, saying I wasn’t sure about my insurance coverage. The lady said not to worry, and since it was an emergency they could see me tomorrow. So i showed up and was seen right away. The dentist, Dr. Shahen was so kind, caring, polite and considerate. He took the utmost care in listening to my needs and shaped my new tooth perfectly and artfully, and during the process, constantly checking in to see i anything hurt. “I don’t want you to have to feel any pain while I’m working on you.” he said. While he sculpted my tooth back to normal, the wonderful lady at the front desk researched and tracked down my insurance for me. I cannot believe this act of kindness. It couldn’t have come at a better time. I am so thrilled to have my smile back.

Just moved to Woodland Hills and had a veneer break. Found the tender dentist online and scheduled an appointment; which was super easy! Nice office , close by, friendly staff, quick in and out, and affordable! Will be using the tender dentist from here on out!

Ok yelpers, if you’re looking for an honest comforting dentist this is the place! From the moment I called to schedule I knew I was in great hands. The beautiful manger was so kind, friendly and honest. I am petrified of dentist due to my childhood and I always feel they want to over drill and tell you unnecessary work that “needs” to be done.
Dr S was super honest and did an amazing job! I love the banter the entire team has and the music choice per patient is a wonderful touch. I was also pleased with the hot lavender towel at the end! Thank you Dr and you entire amazing team for a wonderful experience. I have found my new dentist 🙂 Ps.. I love my new waterpik that I purchased at a ridiculously low price!

The best dentist in Woodland Hills hands down!! I’ve always been scared of the dentist growing up and have had a few consultations at some other places, the members seemed money hungry and judgmental and just confirmed why I didn’t care too much for the dentist. I had bad tooth pain and came across The Tender Dentist. The name struck me! Lol I called and immediately set an appointment with Mirna. She was kind and was able to get me in with the Dr immediately. She was efficient at budgeting my insurance with what was priority, and the Dr was genuine, kind, and funny. The Dr and assistants made me feel comfortable and relaxed as I was sooooo beyond nervous to get root canal and fillings! Omgggg  the experience was impeccable, he was soft handed, listen and observed signs of pain and immediately numbed my mouth and the process was over in no time! I’m genuinely appreciative of the staff and the work they do to make their guest feel comfortable and to give them a pleasant dental experience! Going forward this will be my dentist!!!

Great Dentist very intelligent and knows his craft!!! It’s not everyday that you get a doctor that wants to educate you about keeping your teeth clean and in good condition!!! Very clean facility and lovely staff that makes you feel comfortable like your part of their family!!!

I just moved to the area and was in need of a new dentist– and I’m happy to report that the great reviews of Dr. R and his team are accurate! Loved everyone, total pros, no upselling, but thorough and kind. Great technology and dental assistant that made the x-rays much more comfortable than normal, and Sona is a wonderful hygienist. And they offer a great deal for cleaning and x-rays for new patients! Nice touch letting me pick my own genre of music, too. 🙂 Also, going to the dentist can be stressful and unlike many other offices, everyone there seems happy to be there and dedicated to making it a good experience for the patient. High recommend for Dr. R and the whole team!

A WORD FROM YOUR DOCTOR

We specialize in laughing. HAHA! Laughing with our patients and helping people to healthier mouths makes our day. We have a whole body and toxic free approach. We have a 3d scanner and place dental implants. Dr R has a feather touch (not his words, He actually thinks he's really tuff stuff). We know people hate to go to the dentist, so why not make it more fun? That is why we developed The Tender Dentist Way. Dr. Shahen Rostamian, the Tender Dentist, is a family and implant dentist in Woodland Hills and Sunland, California. He is focused on your dental health. Keeping in mind that most people would rather do anything else, than go to the dentist, he keeps his treatment recommendations to a minimum. He also keeps a light-hearted attitude and tries to make it a fun visit. He enjoys laughing with his patients more than anything.
