Dr. Pham is super nice, gentle and calming! I went into the dentist for the first time since high school, so it had been 10 years or so and found out that I had quite a bit of work that needed to be done, even though I brush my teeth twice a day and floss… lesson learned – must go to the dentist every year! The laser gum treatment was definitely painful but the woman who specializes in it was sooo kind that it made me feel a lot better and then filling my cavities was a total breeze after I asked for the “laughing gas” which I highly recommend if you are very nervous, like I was. The whole staff here is super nice and friendly and made my not so fun dental visit a lot less worse than it could have been at any other dentist office. Highly recommend 🙂

I have been going to this dental office for two years now. Dr. Ray is the best dentist ever. Dr. Ray is a really good dentist who cares about his patients. Today I had an appointment with Dr. Hwang, he was very patient and explained everything clearly.

Dr Pham and his team are awesome! The bad reviews on this site shock me because I have had a great experience with the office in a very traumatic time. Dr Pham has been very supportive to my 24 year old son that was in an accident and lost his 4 front teeth. It is a long process but Dr Pham and his team are helping him to get his beautiful smile back. I just started going there too because they are giving my son such good care. My experience was great, no up selling at all (which I would not tolerate anyway). One of the reasons I left my previous dentist was that every time I went they wanted me to do some procedure that I didn’t want or need. I love that the equipment is current and high tech.

R. K. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I originally tried this dental office because it was the only office in my HMO plan that had good reviews on Yelp.  I was the guinea pig for the family and found that the place was so great that I brought 4 more of my family members to this place.  They are straight forward and sensitive to dental phobic people.  They will let you know what they recommend but will not give you the whole up-sell guilt ridden lectures that I have heard so much about from friends and family.  They even have in-house financing to make it a little easier on the pocket book.  I felt compelled to give them a rating because of the what I guess is unusually good quality of service and care.

Dr. Kedia was absolutely fantastic, very gental, patient, and informative…going to the dentist can be a rough process, but she makes you feel comfortable. The front staff is super kind and helpful aswell!! Thank you!!

Going to the dentist is never fun but Dr. Pham and his staff alleviate my anxiety. From the moment you enter the door, you are greeted with smiles and positive attitudes, always a huge requirement for me. The staff is attentive and always laughing. Dr. Pham has a great sense of humor, never stuffy. I recently had to have a couple of crowns replaced. His office was willing to work with me and offered several payment options. Always a plus in my book! They even offer their own, low cost dental insurance for those without it. My kids (10 and 12) like going to Dr. Pham too!

Kimberly S. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I took my daughter to this dentist after taking her somewhere else where she had a bad experience. The Dentist and her assistants at Valencia Dental Group were all very caring and nice to my daughter. My daughter said to me after she went to the dentist, “Mommy is this going to be my new dentist? Cause I like them they are nice and not scary like the other place.” I told her “Yes this is going to be your dentist” and she smiled. I am very happy with the staff at Valencia Dental Group because they were helpful with my daughter. I am also happy with them because of how they made my daughter and myself feel comfortable.

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


I think I finally found our new dentist in our neighborhood. It was a wonderful experience from start to finish. I felt welcomed and I really like how they were able to adjust to my needs during my visit. I was probably lucky since it was early in the morning too. I had a good experience/interaction with all the staff and dentist. And, I didn’t feel like they were trying to sell to me during my whole visit. I would definitely come back again to see if the experience would be the same. And, would recommend people to come here too.

Keli R. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Well this was an unplanned visit and we were in a panic!! This poor office dealt with so much and is so incredible and patient. We were at the ice station and our 8 year old fell on the ice and broken his front tooth in half. This is not our family dentist but we will be back and we will refer everyone here. We ended up here because they were the closest to the ice station and the nicest on the phone. We were in a panic and they were incredible. Amazing customer service from the minute I called until the minute we left. So thankful to the front office staff, the dentist and the hygienists. I recommend this office to anyone! So so thankful to them for taking such great care of my kiddo.

Chris M. from California (Source: Yelp)


I’ve had dental issues my whole life. From cavities to teeth coming in the wrong places. It has made me see dentists much more than the routine ‘check up and clean’ and has always been a struggle to even get up the courage to go anymore. I put off this visit for far too long. Before I went, my wife signed me up online and was able to inform them that I was very sensitive to the issues I had going on. They were and are, amazing. From the first moments stepping in, I had a good vibe from the place. The front desk ladies are very nice and quite helpful. The attitudes are down to earth and positive. When it came time to see the doctor, he was very understanding of my situation and I really felt like he wanted to help me as an individual and not as another number coming through. I will go no where else but here. As someone who has been in and out of dentists offices for a long time and that’s very concerned about the quality of service, I would recommend VDG to anyone who needs to see a dentist. To VDG, Thank you for being there and I will be setting up my next appointment without reservation or concern.

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


Thank you to Dr. Lee and staff, my kids LOVE going to the dentist now! From check in, x-rays, cleaning and checkup, everything went very smoothly, my kids felt at ease and were excited about being there. As a parent, I like how Dr. Lee thoroughly explained my children’s treatment and the course of action. I was nervous going into this appointment since we had a horrible experience with our last dentist who tried to push unnecessary treatments that would have cost us hundreds of dollars. I’m so glad we found Dr. Lee and the rest of the staff at Valencia Dental Group.

Elo S. from Sun Valley, CA (Source: Google)


What can I say? Another great experience at this office. Everyone is super friendly and caring. Dr. Ray is wonderful. He is the best dentist ever. He listens and cares about his patients. I don’t have dentist phobia anymore. Thank you Dr. Ray!

Gina F. from Bakersfield, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have to say I have not been here but I have had Raymond Safarkoolan Dentist here in Bakersfield, Ca. I was sad to hear he was leaving but I would like anyone in Valencia that is looking for good references on a dentist, he is amazing. Such wonderful patient bedside manners which is always important and very patient with some like me that are not always 100% when seeing a dentist. So I recommend him from Bakersfield, Ca.

Marie Y. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’m shocked that this office does not have 5 stars strong, because they definitely should. To explain the POV I’m coming from, as I’m sure others can definitely relate, I have an extreme fear of dentists due to how poor my previous dentist was (mainly not stopping a filling when I explained I had pain on more than one occasion) and because of this, I haven’t been to a dentist in 5 years. I’m 23 now and realize I had to go sooner or later and finally be an adult about this stuff. I used to work at the Office Depot next door and always had a great experience working with their team as customers, and figured that if I’m going to trust anyone, it’s going to be someone I’ve had a positive rapport with. The details of my actual appointment are not important, to be honest. But the assistants, and Dr. Ray, and the secretaries are all FANTASTIC. They were all so patient with me, especially after I explained my issues with my previous dentist. They explained what they were doing and talked me through the procedure as they did everything and went at my pace for everything. I also left an appointment before we began because I wasn’t relaxed enough to begin and again, the staff was extremely accommodating to that and were happy to reschedule for me. Basically what I’m trying to say is, this team is absolutely fantastic. And Dr. Ray is an amazingly skilled dentist, and again, I can’t stress the patience enough. I am going to stay with this office for as long as possible. Thank you all again for helping me and being such a pleasure. 🙂 I can’t say I’ll stop being spastic whenever I come in but I’m sure with time, I’ll grow out of it eventually.

Jarrett R. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Before going to see dr. Ray at the dentist’s office I had done no research but couldn’t be more thrilled with the results. He and his staff is by far the most customer trained and friendly but most important competent dental practice in the Santa Clarita Valley. Not only do they work with you on prices; every procedure is done properly with your care in mind and after my crowns and fillings I left with a smile because of the experience and because my teeth looked as good as they feel! I recommend them with all of my heart 10 out of 10 best dentist in the valley!

We’ve had a great experience with Dr. Ray and Dr. Lee. Dr. Ray is extremely patient and makes sure his patients are comfortable. I also really appreciated his assistant Nate, who was a very calming presence and explained things well. Dr. Lee was so good with my daughter on the autism spectrum. Very gentle, but still got the work done quickly so that it was over with.

Jennifer A. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to this office for 4 years and love them!  Dr. Kedia is so sweet and thorough and professional, I feel very comfortable with her advice and her work.  My youngest daughter sees the pediatric dentist Dr Lee and she always does great with him, he is funny and engaging and makes the experience pleasant for her.  I have seen Dr Levi for extractions and he makes it easy and painless.  The support staff are wonderful too, I am always treated as an old friend and have never had billing issues or problems with scheduling.  I highly recommend this office!

Jason S. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


After being a patient here for the last several months (cleaning, root canal, several follow-up appointments), I wanted to take the opportunity to update my review because both my wife and I are extremely satisfied with this dental office.  We have visited several dentists in the SCV area and none compare to Dr. Kedia and the staff here, from the front desk to all of the hygienists.  If you are looking for a new dentist for you and your family, this is the place 🙂

Claudia Mariscal (Source: Google)


Very professional and caring staff. Excellent Dentist and assistants. Going to the Dentist is never fun, but they make the experience as comfortable as it can be. Going there after having a horrible experience with my previous Dentist, I can really appreciate what they do in this Dental office.

Ailyn R. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ray is awesome.  I know he has a lot of patients but he makes me feel like I am the only one.  I have a lot of work to be done and a lot of work has been done, and his staff and assistants (Tonya) have been amazing.  While he is working on me, Dr. Ray kept asking me if I was good, if I needed anything.  I love how he explains everything.  He was singing and cracking dental jokes.  He seriously makes me not so nervous.. I recommend him and his staff to anyone.  I know that this is a chain, but the Copper Hill office is the best.  !!!

Roger K. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been with Dr. Pham for 2 years now. I have decent dental insurance so I’m not paying too much out of pocket. I give Valencia Dental Group such a high rating because all the times I have been there, they take good care of me and are sensitive to any dental-phobic feelings one might have. They do a good job in showing you the condition of your teeth with x-rays and photos. Their computer system lets them discuss your teeth while you are looking at the photos and x-rays with them. It is not always fun to see your teeth up close because it is kinda scary but at least you have a true picture. I have been offered different services there. Some I have had done like fillings and crowns. I have always been given the option for what is covered by insurance and the premium options. I don’t have a lot of money so I am honest with them and choose what is covered or sometimes just tell them I can’t get something done. They don’t pressure or guilt trip me to get something I don’t want. They do offer to split payments into 2 or three payments in-house without signing up for a dental loan program. I have found them a great place to go. I can’t attest to the pricing issues that others have talked about but I know that my friends and relatives have told me that this is the first place that hasn’t forced various treatments and services down their throats every time they go. I didn’t go to the dentist for a while because of dental phobia and Valencia Dental Group has me going again!

Beau K. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am so happy with my new smile! Dr Pham and his staff are amazing! They always fit me in….even last minute! I always feel taken care of and appreciated… I am someone that hates going to the dentist and this is the only office I will go to now….my smile has never looked better and I feel like I have real relationships with the staff that care about me and my health… I highly recommend valencia dental group… 🙂

I can attest to being a new patient and bringing my sons here for their dental care. I am impressed with the knowledge and ease with which my family has had their initial appointments, cleanings, and x-rays. The staff is very friendly and there was little wait time once we arrived. I am happy so far with the service.

Terri M. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


After finding Valencia Dental last year and meeting Dr. Pham and his amazing team, I feel so much better about my dental health. The minute I walk in the door, I know that they all really do care about me. From the big smiles at the front desk to the Drs. laughs while I am in the chair, it’s always an educational and good experience. I will always recommend them to everyone that I know!

R. L. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had to leave my old dentist because they stopped taking HMO.  I know PPO is preferred, but I happen to have both.  Dr Ray is VERY personable and he spends lots of time going over your teeth health!  Kamela is very thorough with explaining everything and she doesn’t pressure you if your insurance won’t cover it!  Just feel free to ask about all the options and frequencies. Their hygienist and the rest of the staff are always so very friendly.  I appreciate they take both HMO and PPO.  Keep up the great work guys!!  Thank you!

I was forced by my work’s insurance to change dentist and looking for a dentist that is good and honest is like looking for a mechanic that is the same way. My first dentist choice was a disaster (read the review if you want) and when I switched very quickly after that experience I was concerned. I chose Valencia Dental Group at Copper Hill based on the reviews here and also investigation into the dentist on other sites available. I was missing a crown that came off and had to be replaced, calling into the office I spoke with Kamela on the phone and she was very friendly and professional and worked a time out that was convenient for me. The office is located in a retail center but don’t let that throw you, a lot of dentists here in SCV share the same type of location. It was nice in the lobby and they has a separate area for younger kids including televisions playing kid’s movies. I saw Dr. Ray Safarkookan (you can call him Dr. Ray according to him). He was super nice and understanding. After discussions with him on my prior dental visit he examined my mouth and the x-rays and it was obvious I need the crown replaced. He went over options of types and alleviated any concerns that I had about the replacement. I worked again with Kamela who is a real gem and so friendly, she helped me by explaining all the cost options with my insurance taken into account and let me make the choice on what worked for me. They also have financing options available if you want so look into that when you come here if you have a major item. When I came back to get the crown Kamela and the rest of the front office staff again greeted me got me into the room to have the crown put in by Stephanie (also super nice) along with Dr. Ray. Then a cleaning by Michelle…again another nice and professional person. So bottom line for you Yelpers, an honest and good dentist…highly recommended.

I was very pleased with my last few visits to the Valencia Dental Group at Copper Hill. Everyone here is caring, patient, and very helpful; especially Dr. Ray who is very gentle, patient, and honest. I will definitely recommend this place to people who are looking for great dentistry!

Chelsea O. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Ray is gentle, patient, and honest. After any procedure I had, Dr. ray would personally call me to see if everything post-op was going well. I hate the dentist, but everyone made me feel extremely comfortable. I have never waiting to be seen past my appt time either.

Cynthia C. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


My 8 year old daughter recently had some work done on her teeth. Her treatment required laughing gas and a few shots of local anesthesia. To my surprise my daughter had a very good experience at both of her treatments. She said Dr.Lee was very nice and her dental work didnt hurt much. Also, the office staff and dental assistants were all very friendly and helpful. Overall we had a very good experience.

Lisa S. from Valencia, CA (Source: Yelp)


Thank you Dr. Kedia and staff for making my smile more radiant than ever! Thank you for the special treatment of making me feel relaxed and comfortable throughout my many visits. This office will be a part of my family’s favorite dental place ever and will definitely spread the word to my circle friends and more. Thank you all so much! Blessings

I took my son to Valencia Dental Group at Copper Hill this morning for his first dentist visit. It was a great experience! My stomach was in knots because after having a couple of bad experiences, I am anxious about dental visits. But, my 3 year-old loved his experience and did great! The staff knew how to work with young children, and were so friendly! They took x-rays, did a cleaning and check up, and taught me how to do a better job taking care of my son’s teeth. Ashley was great and Dr. Klein has obviously had lots of experience with little ones.

Susan S. from Stevenson Ranch, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to this group since I needed to have a tooth removed. I was very impressed with the staff and meeting Dr. Ray. I was impressed with The State of The Art equipment when I had my X-rays  taken and had my deep cleaning done. I was scheduled with Dr. Koury, the  oral surgeon and my tooth was removed successfully. What I like especially about this dental office is that the specialists are brought into the office on Copper Hill, instead of being sent to the specialists office. I recommend Valencia Dental Group.

Amanda J. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


Recently, my one year old son chipped his front tooth. We made an appointment to see Dr. Klein, the pediatric dentist at Valencia Dental Group, as my then two-year old daughter had been seen by him before for her first dental check-up, and he had made a positive impression on me. At the time Dr. Klein saw my daughter, we had insurance for her and it was only for a check-up with no cavities, so it was a simple, straightforward visit. For my son, the situation was quite different: no insurance (so BIG money worries), a chipped tooth that was causing my son discomfort and was located right in the front of his mouth, basically his most visible tooth, and my worries about what he might have to experience for the restoration or God forbid, if it had to be pulled?! … Needless to say, I was a nervous wreck. Scared for him, fearful about the financial aspect with no insurance, etc. Dr. Klein was kind, calm and understanding about our fears, delivered some very bad news in the best way possible (the tooth had to be extracted), and approached the whole ordeal as a professional and caring doctor, but also as a fellow parent. He was patient as my husband and I asked a million, possibly billion, questions about the implications, procedure, recovery, risks, etc. and never tried to rush us, cut us off or make us feel that what we needed from him was anything less than important. I have never had a more positive experience with a doctor of any kind. I have never had a more compassionate doctor. He honestly cares about people and he’s good at what he does. I don’t think you can get any better than that. No small thanks also go to his staff, who were very warm and supportive throughout, from the front desk to the assistants. I highly, HIGHLY recommend Dr. Klein and this practice to anyone scouring Yelp for a pediatric dentist, and have made recommendations to all of my friends and family with children. Thank you, Dr. Klein!!!

My insurance provider changed and my regular dentist did not take that insurance so I had to find a new dentist that accepted my plan. I did a little bit of research and found Valencia Dental Group. I chose the Copper Hill location because of it’s proximity to my home and office. From the beginning, Dr. Kedia and the entire office staff were wonderful. Everyone was extremely friendly and polite. If you are looking to change dentist or looking for a new dentist give Valencia Dental Group @ Copper Hill a call.

Erica C. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


My daughters, who had anxiety of going to the dentist after their last experience, loved it!  Dr. Lee is awesome with children! Previous dentist had to put my daughters to sleep (anesthesia with IV) to be able to do dental work, and Dr. Lee did what he had to do without putting them to sleep! Loved his assistants as well! Also, the ladies in the reception area are great! Very nice and awesome customer service!
