Jaleel P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


This office is always radiantly clean, with impeccable decor and a welcome smile. Dr. Truong is patient and gentle, as well as super smart and he has all the trust of my family and I have sent all my friends to be patients as well. So glad we found him! Best dentist ever!

Dr. Kevin Truong is an great dentist with such amazing attention to detail. I have been with this office since I moved here and feel that the cleaning is much better than the dentist I was with prior. He would make recommendations and be willing to answer many questions to help me weigh in whether certain procedures are worthwhile.  This office is so clean and organized.

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


Dr. Kevin Truoung is a great dentist, very reassuring.  I have a pretty intense fear of the dentist and Kevin and his staff were very good about making me feel safe and comfortable. There was little unnecessary waiting and we talked about what I needed and what was best for my situation and I felt like I got exactly what I needed.

Christopher I. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


To be honest I am not a big fan of going to see the dentist. So finding one that I trust and who can alleviate my fears is important to me. Dr. Truong came as a recommendation to me, and I am glad I finally found a dentist that I don’t mind going to. Dr. Truong’s staff was very friendly. From greeting me to talking xrays, they were very professional and caring. When Dr. Truong did his exam, he explained what he was doing and his treatment in terms I can understand. He was very thorough and complete. Most importantly, he did not try to up-sell me on extra treatment (unlike my previous dentist who actually did a procedure on me without my consent). I would highly recommend Dr. Truong if you are looking for a caring, honest dentist. And as a bonus, his fees are pretty affordable. .. esp considering I don’t have insurance

Mai T. from Cheviot Hills, CA (Source: Google)


Dr. Kevin Truong is the best!  I’ve been to several other dentists before who have tried to sell me treatments I didn’t really need…you don’t have to worry about that here.  I’ve had cavities filled, root canals, cleanings, crowns…you name it and he has always been patient and gentle.  Finding a dentist who is really gentle is important to me because I have an extreme fear of dentists and needles, but Dr. Truong’s shots are virtually painless!   He is always thorough and always takes the time to explain the dental procedures and treatment plans.  It’s hard to find a dentist you can trust so I’m really happy I found Dr. Truong! =)

Roy V. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Went to Dr. Kevin to see what he thinks the situation I have going on in my mouth. He was very knowledgeable and patient. He took his time to explain to me what I should do and made sure the front desk will help me. Thank you doctor!

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


I’ve lived in LA for almost 20 years and I’ve had the worst luck with dentists. So much so that some of my teeth were in terrible shape. Kevin Truong saved my smile! Root canals are never fun but he put me totally at ease.  He is so nice and completely charming and has a way of making you feel totally relaxed and at ease. Even when you’re having a procedure that would be rather unpleasant anywhere else he’s really good at making it as painless as possible, both physically and emotionally. His staff is friendly and professional, and make your visit a pleasant experience from beginning to end. After some of the horrible experiences I’ve had in the past I’m overjoyed to finally have a dentist I can consider my regular dentist.

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


This place is so clean, professional, and friendly.  I just changed over to this dentist since my move.  Kevin is so much more detailed and knowledgeable than my last dentist.   He’s very practical, making recommendations that are in my best interest ( and my wallet’ s best interest). Highly recommended!

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


Dr. Truong has great bedside manner. His staff is great, very thorough & they do a great job following up. I just started my care here, & so far so good. The clinic is small but very nice. I would recommend Dr. Truong & his practice to and body interested in establishing dental care!

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


Yup… I went to the Dentist. Date of last visit, “Unknown.” Dr. Kevin Truong dropped SOME KNOWLEDGE!!!!! Yes, I have amazing teeth brushing skills, so I thought… there are just things that WE CANNOT DO without some help from the Doc however :-/ But after some crying like a baby, he turned this frown upside 🙂 #makeanappointmenttoday #teethforlife

Ian C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I hate to see reviews on Yelp like Henry C’s. So he talked to you while working and charged you $125 for a complete cleaning in Beverly Hills? That is one star worthy? If you don’t like him that’s fine, but I don’t see how you could rate him a 1 star DDS Does anyone stop to think the man is trying to make a living and probably went to school half his adult life while spending the other half trying to build his own thing in this world? I’ve went here for about 6 years and I appreciate the advice and guidance he has given me throughout our relationship. As for his banter, Half the time he asks me a question I can’t even answer because he has his hands in my mouth, but who really cares? I find myself telling him some personal things about myself because I have always felt comfortable in his care. His assistants are great, his place is spotless OCD style clean and most importantly he is a great DDS.

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


I loathe going to the dentist…but, with Dr Truong i know that it’s going to be as trustworthy, quick, professional as possible. He doesn’t push unnecessary procedures and I feel completely confident in his assessments.  It’s hard to find a great dentist, and I’m very happy to have found him.

Michael P. from Larchmont, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Truong is plainly AWESOME.  First off, he is extremely thorough in his cleaning.  Unlike other dentists who ask their “nurse” or “hygienist” to do the cleaning, Dr. Truong does it himself.  Also, he is very OCD about the cleaning – I mean gets into the nooks and crannies! =).   Secondly, his consultations are honest and very much patient-centric; it’s very balanced and measured.  It’s not about the latest gadget or technology, it’s about what you as a patient needs and wants.  For example, he asked me if I wanted to an amalgam filling vs. a resin filling for one of my molars – I choose the amalgam despite the appearance b/c I felt more confident and safe with it (esp since it’s a molar).  Another time, he asked about whether I wanted a mouth guard (I grind my teeth); he recommended it for various reasons but it was ultimately my decision (he even ran all the insurance so that I knew what the exact out of pocket price would be).  Lastly, I really appreciate his “chair side” manners.  He remembers details from our last conversation and follows up; I feel that his chats make me feel comfortable.  That’s why I’ve been a loyal customer for over 2 years!

Stacy B. from San Diego, CA (Source: Yelp)


It’s been a long time since I’ve been to a dentist, and selecting a a great one is key especially since I moved to a new state.  I joined a dental discount plan and from there I got a list of participating dentists.  I narrowed the list down to dentists in my area, and of course, looked on Yelp to see what type of reviews they got. Dr. Kevin Truong was one of the few I selected that had all positive Yelp reviews and based on that I decided to go with him.  I was lucky to get an appointment the same day since I had a dental emergency, and Christina who works at the front desk was very helpful and sincere. I arrived there and was welcomed by her and then Lena, Dr. Truong’s assistant,  saw me first before he stepped in.  Lena was very nice as well and easy to talk to.  The patient rooms are soothing and there is nice art on the walls.   I found out I had to get a root canal.  Once Dr. Truong came in, he explained everything, didn’t make any judgments on me not coming to the dentist for so long, and even has music playing in the background as he did his work. And I must say this root canal was a breeze, no pain and was so glad he made it easy.  He has a sense of humor, but when it’s time to get down to business he is focused and does his job well.  He will be honest with you about what you need, and not try to add extra work with unecessary services. I left the office feeling wonderful and I am now a loyal patient!  This is a 3 person team who does an excellent job from start to finish.  I will definitely recommend him to others!

Stacie S. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had my first appointment with Dr. Truong yesterday and he is fantastic. I don’t take going to the dentist lightly…I stuck with my previous dentist for over 20 years, even after moving 50 miles away. When my former dentist retired over a year ago I panicked and began a search for a new dentist and came across Dr. Truong. He’s not close to where I live, but I was more than happy to drive over an hour for someone who came highly recommended. His office is clean, staff is friendly and Dr. Truong uses dental Xrays and cameras to help his patients understand what is going on in their mouths. Although my appointment was just for a cleaning and Xrays, he was able to get started on a new crown for me even though it meant him spending more time than planned on my visit. He was able to prioritize what needed immediate attention and what could wait a bit so that I didn’t have to have too much work done all at once. He also gave me many options and discussed pros and cons of different ways to fix a bad tooth. When I couldn’t decide, he told me what he would do in the same situation which definitely helped. I already set up my next appointment for finishing up my crown. He purposely allows plenty of time for each patient to prevent being too rushed to do a good job, which also means you don’t have to sit around and wait during you appointment. Although I liked my old dentist, I did notice that he was always jumping back and forth from room to room and seemed rushed. Dr. Truong employs the “quality over quantity” approach to dental care, which is evident in the great work he does. Thank you Dr. Truong and staff!!!

*Scroll to the end for the Cliff Notes version I’m definitely one of those people who doesn’t write reviews often.  This might possibly be my second one, but my experience here compelled me to write one. Keep in mind that this review is being written by a girl who is deathly afraid of doctors and dentists alike, and cries at the prospect of injections/needles.  I refuse to see any other doctor other than my dad and any other dentist than my uncle.  But seeing as how I’m from San Francisco and my wisdom tooth pain was becoming unbearable… I had to find a dentist in my area. I came across Dr. Truong on yelp and all the reviews were really great so I decided to give it a try– all of the reviews are 100% spot on.   From the moment I called the receptionist was so friendly, and a big thing that I appreciated was that she immediately asked if this last minute visit was related to pain.  Having experience in the medical field, to address a patient’s pain immediately is something I consider to be highly important, and whether it is standard for her to ask that or not, it definitely did not go unnoticed/unappreciated.  When I got there, the receptionist and the dental assistant were both so friendly and quick to answer any questions that I had.  The dental assistant appropriately explained everything she was going to do before she did it and warned me of any discomfort I might feel.  Having told her that I am deathly afraid of dentists, this was very comforting and, again, very much appreciated.  Acknowledging how scared, anxious, nervous (all of the above!) I was… his receptionist informed me that I could get anxiety meds, but would have to come back to do the procedure on a different day.  I decided to suck it up and try to be a big girl (I’m 21 years old), and I didn’t go for that option but I thought it was nice of her to provide that information. Dr. Truong himself is also very nice.  Not much of a talker, but enough to make it apparent that he knows what he’s doing.  From the moment he told me he would be able to extract my tooth during the visit, tears did not stop pouring out of my eyes until I left (embarassing, yes, but truth.. especially because I had no one there with me and I am a big baby).  His dental assistant quickly got me a box of tissues, and they both gave me time to get myself together before rushing me into another room for the procedure.  He explained everything he was going to do before he did it, was very gentle during the procedure, and was very perceptive to my anxiety. In terms of the other little things…
– Location: Mostly surrounded by residential but it’s kind of on a main road.  Very easy to find, so that was a plus that I didn’t stress out looking for the place – Parking: street parking.  There are metered spaces but there’s a lot of residential parking (I’m not sure if it’s residential parking permit only, though) – Waiting room: spacious.  Good amount of couch space since its a waiting room for Dr. Truong and for a chiropractor.  Good lighting, lots of magazine choices. – Patient rooms: well decorated, well lit.  Colorful– overall pleasing and calming to the eyes! All in all, when I feel like people do everything in their scope to address my feelings, I make it known how appreciative I am… and this was the best way I could do so.  This was an amazing experience (as amazing as a trip to the dentist can be, at least), and I am glad that I picked Dr. Truong’s dental office.  I guess yelp reviews really are helpful! CLIFF NOTES VERSION – Every person on staff is friendly, helpful, and competent – Dr. Truong is very easy going and you can tell he wants to ensure a good patient experience at his clinic (and he does!) – I will DEFINITELY come back in the future should I have any other dental needs while residing in LA If you’re reading this Dr. Truong and staff– thank you being so patient with me, and for putting up with my puddles of tears and billions of questions!

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


Only thing I didn’t like was the parking.  But besides that I loved this place.  Receptionist was nice.  There was no wait.  I was probably in the lobby for maybe 5 minutes while they checked out my paperwork (You can get all the forms you need to submit on their website so you can fill it out prior to coming in)  Sat in the chair, got my xrays, sat in another room, Dr. has his ipod on shuffle, had some good EDM on it,  DOCTOR DOES THE CLEANINGS HIMSELF, he doesn’t talk much  (which I truely liked, come on I’m at the dentist I don’t like talking with things in my mouth).  Very young looking guy (Dr Truong) scrape and polish and BOOM done.  I wasn’t even there a full 30 minutes.  I actually do like going to dentist, because of how my teeth feel afterwards.  I would highly recommend this place if you live out in this area.

Dr Troung is a great person and dentist. He really cares about his patients and puts you at ease! So important. The gals in the office are so nice, helpful and kind. That’s hard to find. A great team at Venice Crossroads!! Thanks to them all!

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


Since I found Dr.Truong on Yelp, I should probably write a review of how wonderful of a dentist he is.The reviews are seriously DEAD ON. He does everything  everyone has said, and takes care of his patients like they’re his family. I’ve been avoiding the dentist for a while due to my busy schedule and costs, but I think finding the dentist is only half the part of the treatment. Your willingness to take that step and call a Dentist to make an appointment is the other half. I didn’t get such great news when I paid Dr.Truong a visit. But sometimes, things happen in life that you must take care of, so what can I do? The sooner you take care of your teeth problems instead of delaying it like I did, the better. I think I would have needed a lot more dental work if I waited, and so I count my lucky stars I found Dr.Truong I wouldn’t take my time to write this review if he didn’t treat me with nothing but care. He took his time to explain things to me, and even recommended a great endodontist. His staff, Christina and Lina, are excellent and work well together with Dr.Truong and his prices are definitely reasonable. What else can I say… ? I have little brothers and sisters that will be paying Dr.Truong a visit and not make the mistake their brother did!

Marc A. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Truong and his staff take the hassle out of going to the dentist.  The location is convenient and there is ample (free!) parking. The service is quite professional. Everything in the office is always clean, the environment is enjoyable and I always feel that I’m given plenty of information in advance about different procedures.   Even when I’ve had some cavities requiring a bit of anesthesia, Dr. Truong is skilled and precise.  Dr. Christopher Lai is an excellent orthodontist and likewise recommended. Scheduling appointments is a breeze too.

Jesse P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Truong and his staff are exceptional. The bedside manner and welcomeness by all at the facility are second to none. Dr. Truong himself has incredible technique and has made going to the dentist, for me, not such a daunting or scary thing. He diagnoses the problem, and fixes it with touch! Awesome! Definitely will be my dentist moving forward!

Kellie Lannon (Source: Google)


Amazing staff and extremely professional. Evelia at the front is so sweet and went above and beyond helping me out during my first visit. I was in at 2P and left around 2:40P. My teeth are squeaky clean and feel amazing. Thank you Venice Crossroads!!!

I’m now in my 4th year of having Kevin Truong as my Dentist, and I am happy to report that Kevin and his team provide an excellent service. They are caring, friendly and professional. His team follows up and makes sure we are all on the same page. Kevin keeps it fully transparent with me in making sure that we stick to a plan in getting my teeth well taken care of.

Cat H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have seen a lot of dentists in my day and I don’t like going, but I do it because I would like having teeth for many years to come.  The thing is dentists always seem to be selling you something– bite plate for teeth grinding, sonic care tooth brushes, braces, teeth whitening, flouride treatments, orbit gum (yea I know right).  Beyond that it’s ok, come back for cleanings, oh do you want that bite plate for 600 bucks?  I appreciated the thoughtful manner in which Dr. Troung went through my xrays and made recommendations that were conservative.  He was professional and pleasant and I felt cared for. The space is somewhat awkward, it’s like a large corridor but it works for the scale of the practice.   Like everyone has noted it’s immaculately clean and modern looking.  Staff is pleasant and professional as well.  I mean… what more do you want?

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


Dr. Truong is the best dentist I’ve ever been to! I chose this place without even knowing about the reviews, simply due to his office’s proximity and convenience for me. I am so glad I did. All the 5-star reviews are legit, and I figured I’d add one more. I’ve moved around a lot, and for the past several years I’ve been trying different dentists. Dr. Truong was more thorough than any dentist I’ve visited, honestly. He noticed things no one else has. I also appreciated his friendly demeanor. He’s very down to earth and I enjoyed chatting with him. For the first time ever, I’m planning to be loyal to a dentist and will definitely recommend him to others.

Tim H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


OK, I do not like Dentist.  They are mean people.  Right?  Well, I think I have found a nice one.  Just ONE, mind you.  (There might be more) He did a nice trick with the needle, so I hardly felt it puncture my otherwise happy gums.  Music that was right, and a friendly attitude.  I really felt like he cared about what is going on in my mouth, when he is away. The room was nice, a short wait, and some samples to send me on my way.  Yep, I think I will return – and it wont be in 3 years anymore, 6 months and I am down!  I drive across town for him, but the yelpers are right, this is a great experience!

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


Dr. Truong is the best. Prior to visiting this office, I’ve had very traumatizing experiences at different dentist’s office, but having appointments here are a breeze and I am well taken care of every time. He was sure to explain to me my options and keep me in the loop as far as the process. I’m very thankful to have been referred to him.

Matt C. from Goleta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Unfortunately for me, I have seen Dr. Truong many times over the last month. Taking two years off from seeing a dentist, and letting known problems wait, is not recommended. Kevin is efficient, and compared to other dentists I’ve had, practically pain free. I’m a busy person, and often times my availability is a mess. With every appointment, they would slot me in not months in advance (like other dentists) but even within the week, flexing to my schedule. His office staff is friendly and helpful, and they would even email me a reminder about my appointment. Overall, a great practice.

Erika G. from Culver City, CA (Source: Yelp)


i inherited Dr. Truong…he took over from the dentist i’d been going to and i decided to stick with him.  i’m so glad we did!   Dr. Truong truly cares about his practice, his professionalism, and most of all, his patients.  it is obvious he respects and treats his staff well too. he’s always looking for ways to improve his service — the overhaul he’s done on the facilities is impressive.  remember, i know what this place was like before him, and the difference is more than just cosmetic.  he’s put in computerized records, has invested in interactive programs to help patients understand procedures & make informed choices, and even got new chairs that i swear are comfier.  yes, you CAN be comfortable at the dentist.  even though he’s obviously spending money to make the patient experience better, he’s not passing on the costs to us because i have seen no difference what i pay — and because for awhile i had no dental insurance, i know what prices can be.
inherited him. there’s never a long wait to see him, and he’ll even rearrange his schedule to accommodate emergencies.  when my mother-in-law who was visiting from Europe broke a tooth, he told us to come in over his lunchtime so he could treat her right away.  he listens, answers all questions in an easy-to-understand manner, and is meticulous doing cleanings.  he’s honest, doesn’t try to upsell you on treatments, and always keeps a positive manner when pointing out potential trouble spots in my mouth (i.e. “let’s try to prevent decay in this area” NOT “well you’re probably going to get a cavity there anyway, so we’ll keep an eye on it”). parking is on the street, but it’s not hard to find a spot in the surrounding neighbourhood. go to Dr. Truong!  you will not regret it!

Alissa B. from Roseville, CA (Source: Yelp)


My husband and I and our 2 year-old daughter saw Dr. Troung twice over the past year. My husband was in pain and needed a root canal, and Dr. Troung performed it. After a couple days of recovery, my husband was pain free! My daughter’s first dental experience was with Dr. Troung, and he was nice, and inviting, and she made her feel comfortable. We came to him from another dentist in the area who was dishonest, charging us for ridiculous things and lying to us! I’m extremely happy to report that our experience with Dr. Troung and his office staff was exactly the opposite. Appointments were always easy to make, we never had to wait past our appointment time, they worked with our insurance, and most importantly…they were honest and the work performed was to the highest standards. We’d recommend Dr. Truong to anyone.

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


I found Dr. Truong on yelp. Not only was he super good at what he’s doing, he’s super duper nice! I had regular cleaning of course and cavity filled. Cavity was filled very properly and efficiently. I only had slight discomfort for a week like Dr. Troung warned me and then it was fine 🙂 All the staff are genuinely sweet and want to take care of you. Will recommend to anyone! So glad I found a great dentist!

Antonio G. from West Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Kevin is amazing! Let me tell you. I was scared to death to go to the dentist. I never had any issues but just the thought of going to the dentist made me nervous. But, boy, I was in for a surprise. Kevin and his team are AMAZING. I mean, he put me at ease and it was like visiting an old friend. Totally cool guy and PAINLESS. I had a couple of cavities and I was really relaxed and didn’t feel a thing. For the first time I’m not scared of going to the dentist and I cannot recommend him HIGH ENOUGH. He’s a true magician! Go Kevin!

Armand R. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a physician so I know what it takes to make patients happy while delivering great care.  Dr. Truong has all of those elements.  He will thoroughly explain to you what he is thinking, and provide you with all of the information you need to make an autonomous decision.  He provides his insight but ultimately gives you the freedom to decide the course of treatment without any added pressure.   I have dealt with a lot of dentists who seem oriented to only provide care that is in their financial best interest.  This is NOT the case with Dr. Truong.  I highly recommend him!

Darine P. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I seriously wish I could give Dr. Truong and his staff more than 5 stars. I’ve been coming to this office for a good few years now, back when Dr. Sharon Lu was running it. My experiences with her were great and I’m glad she found a replacement that meets and exceeds any expectations I had. Dr. Truong has always been honest with me when it came down to the treatments I did or did not need. I’ve always respected this about him because it builds this relationship of trust and I know he’s not out to get my money (like some dentists are!). He’s also very gentle with his hand and I’ve never to hardly have felt his shots. A+ for this! Christina has always been great to me, too! I wish I could remember the name of the other assistant working in the office, but she’s also shown the same kindness as the rest of the team. They are highly knowledgeable in their field and display a great amount of professionalism. I’ve referred a couple of my friends to Dr. Truong’s office and immediately after their initial appointment, I’ll get calls letting me know how much they enjoyed their experience there. If that doesn’t show good work, then I don’t know what! Don’t question whether or not you should come here. Just GO! You won’t regret it!

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


These 5 star reviews are DEAD ON. I really hate going to the dentist. Really. So much that I avoid it and only go once every few years. I decided to see one before I graduate from UCLA and lose my insurance, so I needed to find someone quick. Went with the YELP reviews and made an appointment with Dr. Truong, and they got me in within a week. Here are some of the highlights: First, I was 25 minutes late to the appointment; I had gotten lost and had forgotten my phone so I couldn’t even call to let them know I was running late. By the time I came in to the office, I was crying because I thought 1) I would be berated for being late and/or 2) they wouldn’t see me and still charge me for a missed appointment. However, the receptionist was so kind and acted like it was absolutely no big deal at all. She encouraged me to take my time filling out the paperwork and gave me tissues to wipe my tears. I was expecting to have to wait after being so off schedule but they saw me almost right away. Second, I went into the x-ray room and the technician did not make me gag by shoving the equipment into my mouth (that usually happens to me). Third, Dr. Truong did the actual cleaning. I have never had a dentist spend so much one-on-one time with me. He cleaned my teeth really well, but did not hurt me or make my gums bleed. He had a hygienist in the room with him, but she mostly was there to suction my mouth. Top notch care! Also, I had to have a cavity filled, and I felt about as relaxed as possible. Fourth, the office was simply decorated and comfortable and there was nice music playing. Also, great magazines to look at. And I’ll just say that Dr. Truong is pretty good looking too, and he really knows how to give a good handshake (okay, these last few were just nice extras; I really wouldn’t rate a dentist on his looks, I just thought I’d mention it). My dental insurance covered the x-rays, exam, cleaning, and part of the filling. Altogether I owed $80 for my portion of the filling, and they gave me a bill right there that gave a breakdown of the charges and what my insurance covered. The only warning would be the location because I got kind of lost after getting off the 10, and the parking isn’t great (I was able to park for free on the street but it was the only parking spot for a long time). So give yourself plenty of time to get there if you are driving and not familiar with the area. Altogether a really good experience. I would really recommend Dr. Truong if you live in West LA or the vicinity.
