Oana M. from Fullerton, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very pleasant experience, staff is very friendly and Dr. Violet is a sweetheart. They sent reminder texts of your appointment date, big plus for me, I don’t have to worry about forgetting about it. They are open long hours and I didn’t have to take time off work to make it to the appointment. I’ll bring my teenage daughter and will recommend this little gem uptown Whittier to everyone who needs a dentist.

Dr. Violet is a great dentist. A stickler for detail. Your dental work will be done correctly. She is gentle, patient and kind. The office is clean and well maintained. The experience is very pleasant. I would recommend this office and staff to all my family and friends

From front desk to observation room the practice displays a high level of professionalism. The office as a whole is clean and airy and the staff is personable, patient, kind, empathetic, and kind. I’ve been to a couple of great dentists in my life, but I will have to say this one tops them

Camille M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Extremely pleased with this office…Dr. violet is very sweet and very understanding. I’ve always been very scared of the dentist but when I come here I feel so relaxed. Great staff, and excellent costumer service! Highly recommend Dr. violet

After trying many dentists in the area I tried De, Akhondzadeh on a friends recommendation.  I haver been very happy ever since.  I have been going to Dr. Akhondzadeh for years now, after the long search.  The whole office is very caring and receptive to any issue no matter how small you might think it is.  From Doris at the front desk to all the back office staff.  They all do a great job very professional and thorough and do their best to make you feel comfortable.  I would recommend their services to anyone.

Makes sure Im comfortable and as painless as possible.Cant fail to mention staff is Amazing…yes Amazing. Caring sweet beautiful woman who truly love what they do. Have recommended and will continue recommending Dr.Violet

Adel G. from Montebello, CA (Source: Yelp)


Going to the dentist used to be a daunting task for my wife and me. I had been looking for a good dentist for some time since I had many problems with my teeth and my wife was always afraid of dental work. I looked up dentists in the “Yellow Pages.”  and Dr. Violet’s ad stressed that the office was great for patients who are not fans of dental procedures ,and I said to myself this dentist is for “us!” The first time I visited Dr. Violet Akhondzadeh, D.D.D’s office, I was pleasantly welcomed by Doris, the office manager, who was accommodating and is very helpful in navigating the insurance maze. I met Dr. Violet who was extremely personable and pleasant. In the first visit she took a great deal of time to explain the details of the course of treatment needed. Upon accepting, she assured me that everything will be fine. She insured my comfort by being very gentle and kind. Her skills and demeanor added to her superlative care which made me feel completely stress free. During my years as a patient, she has made me more than six crowns and many fillings with great precision. Her assistant Mrs. Ying is also gentle and attentive. She designed and fabricated the temporary crowns or the bridge very efficiently- they would be undetected by anyone but your self – till the real ones were delivered from the dental lab. Miss Stacy is, in my opinion, is a first class dental care hygienist. Her diligence to details is unbeatable. She tries her best to improve my dental hygiene to insure healthy teeth The office staff provided great care for me and my wife. They are very friendly, yet professional

Toni M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Violet is great!  She does great work.  Things fit and there are no problems with having to return to get stuff corrected.  I am self-proclaimed horrible client.  I have anxiety and it’s not just about the dentist. She is incredibly kind and understanding.  We laugh.  Most of all she listens and to me that’s a great quality

Viri D. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just recently started to come here. The location is clean and the people are friendly. The hours of operation work for me well as I get off work late and I can set late appointment. The wait time is almost non existent as they schedule their patients so well that one gets out the other goes in. I recommend trying this place out

Rita F. from Mount Hope, KS (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Violet for years. She does good work. She listens to your concerns and questions. She always helps me make the right choices for my dental needs. She has a clean environment which is very important. Thanks for your good work Dr. Violet

Christian G. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have had nothing but a phenomenal experience with Dr. Violet. From the moment that I walk into a serine waiting room to the point in which she tends to my teeth. She is extremely thorough, gentle and professional when it comes to addressing any and all of our families dental needs. We have been coming to see her for the past 7 years and highly recommend her as the dentist for all of your dental needs. She is family friendly. Doris is the front receptionist that provides a calming atmosphere which makes any visit a fun and enjoyable experience

Maricela E. from Pico Rivera, CA (Source: Yelp)


So I took a little long to write  this but finally made some time. I had not had a dental  check up  in a few  years so I was quite nervous.  No reason  to be. Dr. Violet  was Great.  She made  me feel very comfortable and  she is very gentle. Oh and  BTW her laugh?   It’s  Quite contagious 🙂  love it.  Her staff were also  great. I highly  recommend Dr. Violet

I have been a regular patient of Dr. Violet for over 20 years. Hands down they are the best dentist office I’ve ever been to. The entire staff is so sweet and helpful. You never have to wait a crazy amount of time to be seen. Such a nice and relaxing experience, and this is coming from someone who does NOT like going to the dentist at all. Definitely recommend. Such a good experience every single time.

Jeanie C. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Violet She is excellent with the best bedside manner I have ever seen.  It is rare to find a professional who really does have a caring heart for her patients.  The thoroughness and professional work is far superior than the regular dentist.  My calls are picked up in a couple of rings, with no taped recording, but a real voice.  I moved 60 miles away, she is still my only dentist. I take my relatives to her also and they LOVE LOVE her.

First off, the waiting room is really nice and it barely feels like a dental office- it’s cozy, provides drinks, and even has a fish tank. The receptionist(s) are super kind, very informed, and care to listen to whatever your concerns may be. Now the actual doctor herself (Dr. Violet), actually shows genuine care for you and your teeth. Lastly, All the other assistants are past paced but accurate at their work

Dr. Violet has been my dentist for years and I can’t imagine seeing anyone else. She’s very professional, and cares a lot about her patients. I also love that she continues to take many courses – her front office is covered with her certificates – that really shows she knows a lot about dentistry. I live on the westside now but I still drive to Whittier to see her. Highly recommend!

I LOVE this dentist!! Doris, the receptionist is awesome as well as violets assistant. Not sure her name but she is a Chinese woman. Violet is the best dentist! She’s so gentle and always making sure you’re okay. I had a bad tooth problem this weekend and she made her personal cell phone available to me at all times and kept checking in on me. I can’t say enough about her and everyone at this office! I will always come here and highly recommend!

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


I’ve been coming here for 5 years now! I have been looking for a good dentist but was never able to find a kind, caring, and funny person. But 5 years ago i did!. She is very helpful. She is also very precise with all her work. Always on schedule and finishes what she starts. She really cares about the little things for example offering refreshments in the waiting area, giving baggies of toothbrushes, floss and offering an awesome selection of shows to watch. I would definitely recommend her. She is better than all of my previous dentists!
Love this place!

Christopher M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)

Dr Violet is fantastic and her staff is incredible. My husband and I have been a very happy patients for 6 years!! Since I spoke so often and favorably about Dr Violet, my dad is now a happy patient as well.  From the moment you enter the door, Doris greets you with a warm welcome and cheer. Dr Violet and I are almost at the tail end of our braces adventure.. When it’s all said and done I will post pictures!! Thank you Dr Violet, Doris and staff for your hospitality, professionalism and expertise!

Anne N. from Long Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Okay, I’m a total coward when it comes to dentists so when I found Dr Violet, I was very happy.  She is patient and gentle and very understanding when I wimp out!  My overall oral health has improved because of her professional care for the past 14 years ago.  Her staff is great – especially Doris, the receptionist /manager!  She’s a peach!  I highly recommend Dr Violet!!

Jaileene Q. from Los Nietos, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to this place for years, they offer an amazing and friendly service and the doctor gives great care for each patient. I would recommend this place if you’re wanting to get braces or just for a regular dentist appointment for cleaning. I got my braces at this place with Dr. Violet about five years ago, and still to this day I’m satisfied with my smile and my teeth overall

The front desk staff and hygienist were very professional and helpful. No wait time and they all were very thorough in their approach. Dr A. was very nice and gentle when doing her work. Always asking if I was OK or if I needed anything

Luz M. from Whittier, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Violet and staff have always been courteous, gentle, and professional. Anytime I’ve had dental emergencies I know I can get treated within 24 hrs. My insurances only cover 70% and although I have to pay out of pocket, she accepts major credit cards and offers medical credit cards. I appreciate the follow up calls after major work done, I have never had a dentist who cares about how I’m doing after they get paid. Dr. Violet thank you

Jose B. from Hacienda Heights, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Violet is my primary Dentist. Her staff is helpful and friendly.  I never wait and I’m seen promptly when I schedule an appointment. I had a variety of minor to moderate procedures which were all pleasant and handled with a high level of professionalism.  I strongly recommend her.

We look forward to becoming your lifelong dental health care provider and helping you achieve the smile of your dreams. Smiley face Dr. Akhondzadeh, known more familiarly by her patients as Dr. Violet, has been practicing dentistry since 1994. She received her Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1981. A member of the American Dental Association (ADA), California Dental Association (CDA) and The International Congress of Oral Implantologists, Dr. Violet has also studied Cosmetic Dentistry at UCLA and has accrued over 1,000 hours of education in Orthodontics. In 1996, Dr. Violet’s passion for dentistry led her to Whittier, CA, where she opened her own practice and has been right-at-home ever since. Her goal is to treat every patient with the care that she would expect if she were in the dental chair. To reach this goal she uses the best dental labs, the most effective products possible, and stays up-to-date with the rapidly evolving technology of dentistry. Her practice is focused on each individual patient – tending to his or her need, however unique they may be. Her passion for her craft stems from an understanding that the mouth is an important part of the body. Not only does the mouth nourish the entire body, but it also has the ability to harm by being a source of disease and discomfort that can deteriorate one’s overall health. Therefore her goal is to help people keep their teeth healthy so they can enjoy life. Dr. Violet makes time to repay the blessings that she has received by volunteering her services to non-profit groups and supporting the efforts of the Red-Cross and Salvation Army. In her free time, she likes to spend time with her daughter, who is a lawyer and Berkeley California Graduate. She loves to stay active, likes traveling, enjoys walking her dogs, maintaining and caring for her roses and orchids and going to the Whittier Farmer’s Market.
