Best dentist in Los Angeles(…) So i went on Yelp to look for a dentist…because my dentist decided to retired right when i was do to have my regular clean up:( So i was freaking out because i never go more than 7 months without visiting my dentist…so here you have me on YELP looking for a dentist, SCARY! Specially when i went to my dentist for 12 years. So i called a few places that ive found with good reviews in yelp and well first they quoted me with like $300 dollars and up, without even looking at my teeth:(.  Then i saw Trident with only one review so i hasitated for a bit then i called.  Next thing you know…i was having my teeth being work on next day and i only paid $75 dollars for everything yes…X-Rays, clean up…and trust me they cleaned up my teeth perfectly.  Also they showed me through a video camera my teeth all the way where they found some small cavities:(.  My ex dentist never looked that close to my teeth like they did…Dr Elaine is AWESOME.  You have to meet this women she is the most professional person i’ve ever met.  Trust me i am not a fan of doctors but i have never felt so good going to a dentist in my life.  I soon will get back to take care of those small cavities.  Thank you guys for making me feel more confident about my teeth and having great prices.  you guys ROCK!!!!!

I came in for some major cavity work and my dentist did an excellent job. She was gentle and she nailed the tooth structure to get a solid comfortable bite on all 5 cavities. I have had bad experiences with dental work in the past where I felt I had boulders in my mouth so I came in with a lot of OCD questions but they handled me politely and professionally taking the time to answer all my questions in detail.

Adil G. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


OK, so i work in the building that this office is located. It is convenient so I made an appointment for cleaning and check up. I gotta say that my experience was great. First of all I was blown away by the renovation, Dr. really put in some work into this office. Really like the technology, the set up and gadgets. My whitening was done by a laser, 35 minutes and I’m done. During check up I had overhead TV, but didn’t have time to see anything, so I listened to radio. Really like all gadgets. Staff was all females, really nice. I didn’t feel like I was being upsold…which is great. Dr. Gorelik has nice touch. I highly recommend Dr. Gorelik

No one likes to go to the dentist, right? Not true–I always enjoy my visits to Trident Dentistry because the staff and dentists are great, everyone is pleasant and professional and they just plain take good care of your teeth.

Rachel W. from San Rafael, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m not someone who is excited to go to the dentist–few people are–but I AM very excited to leave a review for this practice, because they’re simply one of the best dentists I’ve ever been to. The atmosphere is clinical but inviting. It’s the austere white of most dentist offices, but there are fresh flowers growing up front and a wonderful view out to the opposite buildings, so it doesn’t feel cramped or stuffy. The staff is incredible. All of them are so. Nice. (And they have great teeth. Go figure.) Prompt, efficient, and very kind, you won’t meet a better series of people, from hygienists to reception. The doctor herself is incredible. She is clear about what she’s doing from start to finish, thorough and patient and very caring. I winced during my filling and she instantly wanted to know if I was alright. This office is incredible, and you should absolutely go if you’re on the fence about getting that filling done you’ve been putting off for years. Thank you for the fastest and least painful filling I’ve ever gotten!

The best experience at the dental office! Great personnel, waiting time, amazing doctor. Highest marks for Dr. Gorelick and Veronica. Most helpful office manager Val. My sincere gratitude and best recommendations!

Vandy R. (Source: Google)


This is the best dentistry practice I’ve ever been to! They provide exceptional service, from scheduling to procedures. They performed a very thorough check up and caught things that other dentists in the past have not. They are also super efficient with appointments. I would recommend Trident Dentistry to everyone!

Matt O'Brien (Source: Google)


Dr Elaine and her staff provide exceptional service with extremely thorough care. Best teeth cleaning I’ve ever had, very detail oriented. The front desk staff is also very friendly and helpful handling insurance. Very seamless process, highly recommend!

David I. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Gorelik is the best dentist. I’m deathly afraid of going to the dentist and getting cavities filled. The filing was only 10 mins and I didn’t feel a thing. Great experience. I’m never going to another dentist. Update: still 5 stars for amazing customer service and painless procedures

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


I had the best experience I have every had with a dentist office. Dr. Gorelik saved my self esteem, I went to her not knowing what to expect. But when I left the office I had a whole knew outlook on life. I was able to smile with confidence. Not only is Dr. Gorelik professional, her office staff was just as accommodating. The office is setup with a very plush atmosphere. While being worked on, I was able to choose music or dvd for my entertainment purpose. Before I knew it the procedure was done. I was totally impressed with my whole visit, that I went back to work bragging about my experience. I recommend Dr. Gorelik to anyone who wants the best dentistry work in town!!! She made me smile again

I had a bad experience with another dentist and called Trident to see if they could help fix the defective work. The appointment scheduler was very friendly and got me in to see Dr. Gorelik in under 3 hours! When I came to the office, Edwin helped me register and the process was very easy. I had filled out the forms online before going to my appointment and I really recommend doing that as it makes everything easier. I signed the rest of my forms on the iPad and it was super easy. Edwin explained how the insurance worked and gave me an exact breakdown of the cost, since it was a complex insurance case due to previous work on the same tooth. He gave me all the information I needed and made sure I knew exactly what to expect. The hygienist who took me back was also great. She took my x-rays and all the information about what I needed done. She was quick, friendly, and efficient. Dr. Gorelik was an absolute pleasure. She made sure to double check on what I needed done and made me feel 100% comfortable with everything. I watched her interacting with other patients before she saw me and she really takes the time to listen and answer any questions anyone has about their case. She truly cares about her patients. With me, she was funny, thoughtful, professional, and efficient. I will never go to another dentist if I don’t have to!  The office played cool music, was full of a professional and friendly staff, was clean and bright, and had screens on the dental chairs where you can watch Netflix while they work! It’s the best dentist’s office I’ve ever been in! The entire visit took about an hour from when I walked in the door to when I walked out. Edwin called me after my visit to make sure I understood everything about the insurance since he wasn’t able to catch me before I left. Best. Dentist. EVER

I am happy that I am the first one to review this dentist.  I’ve been a patient of Dr. Gorelik for the past 2.5 years.   I was a pt of Dr. Gorelik when she was an associate dentist in another office and followed her when she opened her new beautiful office because she is an artist.   Now my whole family goes to her.   My front tooth was dark blue ever since I fell in middle school.  I visited number of dentists, had a root canal, bonding, filling, but every time I complained about the color they would tell me that the only way is to get a crown for $1500 and custom shade by the lab extra $100.  When I came to see Dr. Gorelik 2.5 years ago she recommended to bleach my tooth from the inside and do a  chairside veneer.  She bleached my tooth 3 times within 2 weeks.  After she was satisfied with the color  I came to see her for a bonding procedure.  When I came into the operatory, her table was set up for the procedure.  There was a color pallet, different brushes, a picture of my tooth on the computer screen with colors and numbers on it, other instruments… She spend 2 hours sculpting my tooth.  She matched the color perfectly.  Its been more than 2 years now and the tooth looks better than ever, I can’t even tell which tooth it is.  Now I can truly say that dentistry is an art.  Thank you Dr. Gorelik for changing my smile!  I love smiling!

Ryan G. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


What can i say but SUPER AWESOME PLACE.  For those of us who are scared of dentist…you have to try this place.  Ms Elaine is not only a wonderful person but after 2 visits and 5 cavities filled, i feel like a new person. i had not a good but a fantastic experience and going to the dentist is a not a very fun thing to do.  Thanks Pam for your always sweet smile, you guys make us feel better before and after!  See you soon

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


The most wonderful dentist and group of human beings. My 83 year old mother who never went to dentist due to fear. Now needed teeth removed and major work done. They were sympathetic and caring. Went slowly and at her speed. Everyone from the front desk to the hygienist to the dentist themselves were genuinely caring. They even gave cell phone for emergencies. I. Can’t thank them all enough for everything. Even working with us financially. Highly recommend and respect all of them

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


Years ago, I had teeth knocked out playing hockey. My two upper front teeth have been fakes for a while. One of them started deteriorating. My wife went to Trident so I decided to give them a try. It was honestly one of the most pleasant experiences I’ve had with dentistry. My new fakes look SIGNIFICANTLY better than the ones I had before. I genuinely haven’t been this comfortable with my smile since before getting my OGs knocked out.

Val G. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Gorelik is the best dentist: understanding, carrying, very knowledgeable, educated- “new” type of dentist. She loves to educate the patient on the latest procedures and  techniques. And believe you or not, I felt asleep in dental CHAIR  AGAIN. Amazing stuff: professional and warm! Netflix is good for the long appointment.

John Merjil (Source: Google)


I had a very present first visit to Trident Cosmetic & Family Dentistry The staff and Dr. were extremely friendly and informative. Every person in the office went out of their way to accommodate me. Based on my first visit (many more to come) I highly recommend this office.

My wife referred me to Trident Dentistry after I had some botched dental work at home on the East Coast. Long story short, I now fly from New York to Los Angeles anytime I need any dental work done. I’ve needed my fair share of work, everything from routine cleanings to an implant and new crowns. Dr. Gorelik and her staff do the best work around, hands down! Val and the staff at the front desk are always super accommodating and help my trips run smoothly. Not to mention they are some of the friendliest people you will ever meet. For all of your dental needs Trident is the place to go!

Absolutely amazing! Clean office, high tech equipment, everyone was amazing and super friendly. I, like most people, am very scared of the dentist, but both Dr and Hygienist were extremely gentle. I got to watch Netflix and their chairs have massages! My appointment was over before i knew it. They even have this cool machine that allows the office to make crowns in one visit and i love that with my busy schedule. will definitely go back and recommend this office to my friends and family. Thank you guys!

Olga B. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I recently moved and have been to number of dental offices.  Until now I have been disappointed with dentists in Los Angeles .  Every time I would go for  a check up, a dentist would try to sell an expensive nightguard to me even though I never complained of TMJ or grinding my teeth, deep cleaning or power toothbrush that will do wonders to my teeth .  I am so happy to say  that I finally found a dental office that did not try to sell me anything I did not need.  I visited the office of Dr. Gorelik on Monday during open house.  She gave me a tour of the office, she was very pleasant and informative.  I was impressed with all the technology that she has.  She even has a laser for whitening, and digital impression scanner for crowns. After meeting Dr. Gorelik and her friendly staff I made an appointment right away. I had x-rays, exam and cleaning done on Wednesday.  Dr. Gorelik spend about 20 minutes talking to me about my health, my concerns and expectations.  She showed me my x-rays on the computer screen and explained in details everything. It was the first time a dentist explained treatment to me. She also took some pictures of my teeth and showed them to me.  During my cleaning I watched an episode of Friends.  She was gentle. Oh, forgot to mention, dental chairs are so comfortable with soft massage. I am coming back next week to see Dr. Gorelik for fillings. I highly recommend this office.

The entire experience was extremely impressive, including the attentiveness of the front office staff and the expertise of Dr. Gorelik. I especially enjoyed watching any program on Netflix on a personal monitor in a massaging chair. I’ve never been so relaxed & comfortable at the dentist!

I have been coming to this dental office since it opened. Absolutely beautiful dental office! And the service is amazing. The people at the front desk are always so kind and greet me every time I come in. Everyone at the office is so professional. The teeth cleaning is phenomenal, I come out the office and right away I have been getting compliments on how shiny my teeth have been looking! Also when I come in, Doctor Gorelik checks out my teeth and knows exactly what she is talking about. Doctor Gorelik fixed it up very quickly. Would definitely recommend to all to check out this office!

Beautiful new office and amazing staff! I’m so thrilled with the work Dr. Elaine did for my husband. I would absolutely recommend Trident Cosmetic Dentistry to anyone looking for a highly skilled and also incredibly personable dentist. I always look forward to getting my very thorough teeth cleanings here as well.

Harish S. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just got done with a big job at Trident Dental Office. I never thought that I would give 5 stars to a dentist, but here it is. I’m not scared of dentists anymore. My experience at the office was great. When I just walked in I checked in through computer, paperless GO GREEN!!! Lobby had a little bar area, where all drinks were free. Had to wait for a moment before I was called in. I have never seen such a high-tech office. I was presented with a catalog of about 500 movies and shows. While I was watching Curb My Enthusiasm, staff took my X-rays. When Dr. Gorelik came in, she was very nice, explained every move and used some of her fancy gadgets. She took some pictures with her camera inside my mouth. Then showed me my problem areas on my screen (she has two tv screens in a room). I had two crowns done and laser gum surgery. It sounds scary, imagine how I felt. With big surprise I didn’t feel pain. First of all I didn’t have to get impression in my mouth with all that gunk, don’t like those since I have gag reflex. Instead Dr. took impression with a camera – all digital. Next was anaesthesia wow, I had some gel put around one tooth, then with a tiny pen looking machine Dr. anestised my tooth, not whole mouth. I didn’t feel anything, didn’t see a syringe. The whole procedure was painless. I had a gummy smile, so I opted for laser gum surgery. This procedure was also painless. with no anaesthesia, absolutely painless and with in about 30 minutes I had a different smile. It took maybe 5-7 days to heal and now I smile more. Entire appointment took two shows of Curb Your Enthusiasm I walked out a different person. This office rocks, love the staff. Dr. Gorelik was great. I’m coming back. BTW, she’s a graduate from UCLA, I went there too

For most of my life, I’ve either avoided dentists or had horrible experiences with them. As I’m reaching the end of my college career, I decided to go out and find the best dentist possible to fix my teeth, from Yelp– and I did. Dr. Gorelik’s office is amazing. The contrast with my past dentists is absolutely astounding. Gorelik has the newest dental tools, patient comfort equipment like massage chairs and netflix, and a super friendly staff. My past dentists have had dark offices in the basement of some medical building, or some cramped thin office filled with cigarette smoke (from the dentist himself!). I have had multiple visits over a year, and still a few more to go until I finish my tooth implant, but I can tell that she really cares about patient treatment. If my temporary falls out, I can usually get an appointment the next day. Her office is super popular because of the good reviews, and it’s usually completely booked, but somehow their staff fits me in. I wish I found a dentist like this earlier in my life, so my self-confidence didn’t have to take such a big hit while growing up

Val G. from Beverly Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Bottled Water, super friendly receptionist,check-in at the computer,modern design.. chair with light massage.. favorite shows on edge with the technology ..And Doctor Elaine ( in addition to the fancy stuff), the doctor is friendly, smart, competent and  great at explaining what she’s doing and why. Her hands are so gentle! And more.. I was given my treatment plan with explanation of payment.. Amazing experience at the Dental Office! I definitely recommend this office to YOU!

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


I saw Dr. Gorelik for fillings last week.  Again Wow!  It was great! I was so terrified of the shot, but did not even feel it.  I watched a movie Ugly Truth, and before I even realized I had 4 fillings done.  I was so relaxed during the procedure, did not want to get up and go back to work. What is the world coming to I want to go see my dentist to take a break from a stressful day at work.

I absolutely LOVE Dr. Elaine Gorelik. I had to have two teeth extracted and the procedure was totally painless. I am a serious coward when it comes to pain. Dr. Gorelik made sure the procedure was pain free. Everyone at Trident Cosmetic and Family Dentistry is wonderful, professional and knowledgeable. You are welcomed with open arms. What could be better than that?

Simply the ABSOLUTE BEST EVER!!!! I had an emergency situation where one of my veneers chipped (not originally administered by Trident). I showed up at 7:00am and Trident took me right in. First of all, NOBODY has hours from 7am to 7pm….but Trident does! They took me in, fitted me for a new veneer, and placed a temporary bond. All within an hour. Incredible. Everybody in the entire office is SOOOOO friendly and accommodating. And they even have Netflix!!! with personal headphones! WHAT?!!?!?!?!?!!? No other dentist has that. By the way, when i came back for my veneer one week later, the whole procedure took about 30 minutes! They were prepared and right on it.I will ONLY recommend Trident to my friends and colleagues. And their location right off Olympic is very accessible. Trident and the staff are simply the BEST!

Ryan M. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


I absolutely love this place. In the past I have had veneers done on 6 of my upper teeth. Not happy with my results. In a few short months one cracked in half and fell off. I went to many dentists to see what we could do to temporarily fix that one veneer. Every dentist I saw told me there is nothing they could do but replace all 6 veneers, because replacing one wouldn’t match the rest of my teeth. Frustrated I went too see Dr Gorelik and she was more then happy to fix just that one tooth. She spend so much time making sure everything was perfect. Afterwards she took some more xrays and with a tiny camera she showed me on the screen above my head exactly  why the rest of my veneers need replacing. For me seeing the problem is believing there is actually a problem. Thank you dr gorelik for caring about my dental and overall health. The rest of the staff is amazing and very knowledgeable. I will definetly recommend this office to allll my family and friends 🙂

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


I highly recommend Elaine Gorelick. I broke my front tooth and they got me in right away…worked with me as a cash patient…friendly helpful staff…told me all expenses up front …My broken tooth looks even better than before…office and equipment modern… super shiny clean office…gentle when working on me…had a teeth cleaning which was great….i love this office…left with a great smile…:D

Twinkle L. from San Francisco, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fantastic dental office with great staff. Everyone is extremely friendly, professional and accommodating. I’ve been going to Trident Dentistry for 6 years now after getting a referral from my coworker and have even continued treatment here after moving to the Bay Area 3 years ago. I recently came back to get a broken crown fixed and was very impressed with their new office and how their staff continues to be so welcoming. I like how everyone seems to be In a good mood from the front desk (Val, Kathleen) to Tina, Marisa, Dr. Gorelik and Dr. Nikki. I’ve never enjoyed getting my teeth cleaned until I had Marisa as a hygienist – she’s so thorough. I also love how caring and personable both Dr. Gorelik and Dr. Nikki are! Thanks to Val for answering all of my questions over the years. Highly recommend.

Marissa cleans teeth like she means it. I always feel super fresh. Ivy did a great job too. The two doctors are very nice! Gorelick did a perfect job on a filling. Today I went in for the fifth cleaning with them and enjoyed the massaging chair and Netflix. By the time my cleaning was over I had finished an episode of America’s Funniest Home Videos. BTW, if you hate cleanings because they hurt, ask for numbing mouth rinse. They are very accommodating and caring!

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


Yet another great experience with Dr. Gorelik! I moved to Las Vegas but still make a trip to Los Angeles to visit Trident Dentistry. Dr. Gorelik is undeniably the best dentist and her bedside manner is exceptional! I truly enjoy my experience at this dental office and I never thought I would say that.
