Check out what some of our happy patients are saying about us:

Chris F. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best dental service around.  The office is right sized for efficiency and no clutter.  The staff is warm and welcoming and always greet me with a smile.  The wait times to see the dentist are anywhere from 10 seconds to 3 – 4 minutes (amazing).  The dental equipment along with the review rooms have modern tools that are clean and well maintained.  Even a flat screen TV to view while I’m waiting.  Finally, Dr. Erick or “E” as I like to refer to him is an outstanding dentist.  He doesn’t just step in the room and stick his hands down your mouth.  He takes the time to get to know you, shares a little of himself and makes you feel very comfortable and at ease.  He has a great sense of humor and is always ready with a funny line to get you in the mood for, what can be, a painful procedure.  I’ve been there for multiple issues, periodic cleanings up to an abscessed tooth.  He always makes me feel at ease despite the pain and comfortableness.  And he is very efficient as his staff are all well trained to keep things moving.  I always walk away pleased.  Even better, the office sets times aside for emergencies.  If I have an urgent request, they usually get me in the same day.  Amazing!  When my old dentist retired, I was very concerned moving to a new dentist.  In reality, I should have switched to Dr. E years ago.  He’s the best I’ve ever experienced and gets an A in every facet of running a dental office

Having not been to a dentist in a few years Dr Erick made it a good/positive experience. He took the time to both provide dental services but, more importantly, provided the contextual education. Think I finally found ‘my dentist’!!

Holly R. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have never had any dental problems (including any cavities), and I really dislike dentists, so I went pretty rarely.  I ended up seeing Dr. Erick by pure chance, and now I am going every 6 months.  He has a great personality, keeps notes on our conversations and picks up where we left off 6 months ago, is very common sense on dental care, and is reasonably priced (I don’t carry dental insurance).  I actually enjoy going to see him!!  Also – his staff are really helpful, pleasant and efficient.  You can’t ask for more!

Kristin B. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Today I had my first appointment at West Beach Dental. Dr. Eric and his staff were professional,  friendly and thorough.  I appreciated the time he spent getting to know me and answering all my questions. Best dental appointment I’ve had in years!

Cathy C. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Over the last few months I needed to have 4 crowns replaced & 2 veneers. All were in the front of my mouth. I had been referred by a friend and had seen Dr. Erick’s work. However, all of Dr. Erick’s work was critical to my smile. From the first phone call/scheduling with Zuli, Jay’s assistance in the chair, and Dr. Erick’s exceptional skill=I am extremely happy with the results! This was a very difficult dental challenge and required special care & patience. Dr. Erick was energetic, upbeat, and listened to my concerns. My dental insurance does not cover his practice so he even went a step further and allowed a payment plan. This is the best dental care I have ever received!

Josh B. from El Segundo, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erick is fantastic. Very personal and can keep you occupied while you’re in the dreaded chair. He also remembered little details about myself (must be taking notes or something) but it was impressive when he asked how my soon to be baby’s mama is doing. Hands down would recommend him to everyone, and I actually did already refer a couple of my friends.

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


I saw that some of these reviews were dated too and wanted to quickly write one. I have been very put off by dentists since I was a kid (getting two teeth pulled when you are 8 is scary) and finally found a dentist I trust. Dr Erik has a very relaxed way about him that makes you feel comfortable. He will even play Planet Earth DVDs for you to watch while getting work done to help relax you.  He is also very thorough, and makes sure he does a great job with new fillings, and improving old ones. I couldn’t recommend him enough.

Both my daughter and I had cleanings and the hygienists were fantastic. They were especially gentle and caring with my daughter which I appreciated. The doctor was very kind and explained everything about my treatment. Excellent office staff as well. So happy to have found a great dentist for our family

Yaya V. from Playa Vista, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erick Bartolome is the BEST dentist we have ever had.  He used to be walking distance from my house before he opened up his own practice but the drive each time is worth it.  He’s honest and that’s what I want. He also possesses all the other great qualities of a dentist- kind, patient, explains everything, easy to schedule with, etc.  If you are looking for a dentist, he’s definitely the one to try.

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


I couldn’t have been happier with this place.  It’s nearby my job, the hygienist completely cleaned the tartar from my mouth, and the dentist was extremely nice.  Everything looked extremely clean.  I wish there was more parking available though

Ross R. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erich, Jay his trusty assistant and the entire staff at this location, ROCK! A few months ago he had to install a crown for me and did it with grace poise and professionalism. I was shocked at how sensitive he was during the procedure. He knew when to apply pressure and when to back off. Jay his Assistant is extremely kind and gracious. They work very well together and the patient gains every time. Make plans to get your teeth cleaned and an assessment for future work, now! Don’t wait,

Mike S. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Review is way overdue so it was time to post it for others. Dr. Erick Bartolome is a great dentist! Took the reviews here on Yelp to find a better dentist than I’ve been to before and the reviews are spot on. He is more skilled than others and cares for his patients. Don’t need any additional work on my teeth thanks to Dr. Bartolome’s good care and advice other than periodic cleanings! Been coming back to West Beach Dental have my teeth cleaned for over 2 years now

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


Great office, eveyone is nice and Dr. Bartolome is excellent!  He is very knowledgable and personable.  Definitely recommend this place!  Easy to get to and convenient parking as well!

Kelly A. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I got into a car accident years back and got two root canals and a crown. Slowly my teeth started changing color and I was super insecure about my smile. Before coming to Dr. Erick I did my research around town & soon found out that a lot of dentists just want your money and come up with all sorts of work that you need. Dr. Erick was always straight forward and did not pressure me. I ended up choosing him in the end and I am BEYOND happy! He is such a nice guy and explains everything before and as he does it! I HIGHLY recommend him to all my friends and family. Got my smile back!!

Bradley C. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Fran, my hygienist, Fran, was frantastic! I was a little surprised when she woke me up to tell me I had fallen asleep and my cleaning was complete. Dr. Erick is honest, smart, and knowledgeable. Not only will I return, but I’m being my teeth with me too Shazam!

Ed H. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


OK, so to start off, I’ve been to many dentists. Good and bad, but Dr. Erick is just a great guy. He takes a personal interest in the patients and get to know you before jumping into your mouth with a probe and a drill. He performed the hygiene himself so as to give a better exam. I had an issue while I was traveling that caused me to call his office.  He personally called me back to make sure I was satisfied and told me to call during the weekend if things got worse. I highly recommend this practice. The office is modern and clean and the staff are friendly and accommodating. Overall a great experience!

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


I have been seeing Dr. Eric for many years now.  It is like visiting an old friend.  He is kind, gentle and very knowledgeable.  I recommend friends to him all the time. Great office and great staff.

Lisa H. from Boston, MA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erick Bartolome is simply the BEST dentist I have ever been to.  Going to the dentist is never fun – but to make matters worse I first went to this office after chipping my teeth.   Not only is Dr. Bartolome kind, considerate, patient and professional – but his technique and expertise are equally outstanding.  I never remember a novacaine shot as painless as his! Even the office staff is lovely and the wait time was nil.  They are upfront about prices/ins coverage and really are helpful. AlthoughI have moved to the East coast, I still hope to see Dr. Bartolome for cleanings if my travel and dentist appointments line up!  If I could give this dentist 10 stars I would!!

Julie Wang (Source: Google)


Erick and his staff are kind, professional, thorough, and wonderful! Erick always explained exactly what he was doing, and why. They were super clear about what was and wasn’t covered by insurance prior to the actual procedure, so I could make informed choices. And on top of that, the cleaning and filling I got were performed efficiently and well. 10/5 stars!

Seth M. from Hermosa Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


This is THE BEST dental experience I’ve ever had! First of all the staff is so friendly and everyone made me feel comfortable before I sat in the chair to be examined. I ask A LOT of questions and the two assistants in front (Melissa and Jay) were very helpful and quick to provide thorough answers to everything I asked. On top of being a great dentist, Dr. Erick made me feel like a friend more so than a client. I really felt that with the whole staff. The precision in Dr. Erick’s craft and genuine hospitality of everyone in the office will keep me coming back

J. P. from Redondo Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Erick since he worked in Playa Vista. He’s outstanding. Very conservative and trustworthy in terms of identifying necessary work, and an excellent craftsman in the work he does. Very good hygiene and office staff as well. Highly recommended!

Sara J. from Tarrytown, Austin, TX (Source: Yelp)


I went to several dentist here in So. Bay before going to West Beach Dental. I found most dentist in the area would either try to take advantage of me or they were simply terrible. I had one dentist tell me I had 9 cavities and then tried to hard pressure sell me into doing the fillings immediately that day in his office. I went for a second opinion and found he was trying to scam me. Eric seems like a good honest person, that does great work, and take his time

Lily Tran (Source: Google)


I went to Dr. B when he was part of another office in Playa Vista in 2012. He did a great job on my crown and any fillings I needed. I moved so I had to change dentists, and have been unhappy with any other crown work since.

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


I will forever stand by my claim that Dr Erik is the best damn dentist on the west side of things. I whole heartedly recommend his dental practice. Even at the risk of over exposing my dentist and there by making it more difficult for me to get an appointment, (though that is never an issue). Still, I’m willing to do so, if it means he gets to help out my friends and fellow yelpers. Some of the stand outs: The office is clean and comfortable. The equipment is all new and state of the art. The staff is kind and super friendly. Plus the good doctor is a remarkable person, let alone a fantastic dentist. I really can not say enough wonderful things about #WestBeachDental. You’ll be glad that you wen

Judi K. from Marina del Rey, CA (Source: Yelp)


This 5 Star  rating is beyond overdue‼I first met Dr.E when he was in playa vista, when I called to make my regular 6 month appt. the office told me he moved and opened his own practice ‼‼so I found Dr E and made my Appointment! It’s so easy for me to give the 5 stars when what I really would like to do is 10 plus stars! Honestly, I had the most horrible dental experiences and I told him that but I NEVER needed to worry for a split second Dr E. is an incredible dentist who cares about “you” as if you were his only patient plus he’s a “Perfectionist ” you will Never feel as though you leave his office without feeling like you were just given the A plus treatment and may I add he is so gentle, kind, and all around a great guy!! I really without any reservations recommend one of the nicest person I’ve ever met Oh, plus he makes your teeth perfect or like me, the best he can do after all the terrible dentists before him Many thanks to you and your great staff

Janet H. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been to Dr. Erick twice, so I guess he gets 10 stars. I love his humorous personality and his gentle manner. I first chose him when I had to change dentists and I found on the internet that he came highly recommended by several people.  I like that I’m not paying for an extravagantly decorated office. Making appointments has been pleasant and easy.  Parking is easy.  I have experienced zero upselling.  Three of my family members are also happy with Dr. Erick Bartolome.  I hope you are too

Natalie G. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


There are not enough good things to say.  If I could give them 100 stars, I would.  I’ve always felt uncomfortable with dentists until I started going here.  Prior to finding Dr. Erick, I went to a dentist who told me I needed 3 root canals.  I was distraught, knowing that my last dental appointment indicated no cavities.  I left that former dentist in tears and quickly found West Beach Dental on Yelp.  Dr. Erick did an exam and, sure enough, I had no cavities.  4 years later and I still go to him faithfully. For the first time in my life, I look forward to going to the dentist because of him.  He’s incredibly trustworthy and cares much more about his patients and their teeth than he does about making money.  The staff is friendly and the office is modern and clean.  Furthermore,Dr. Erick’s bedside manner is incredible.  He remembers every patient and treats you like a friend and not just a client.  And, most importantly, he has made me confident with my smile!  If you’re not going here, you’re missing out!!

Patty C. from San Pedro, CA (Source: Yelp)


Eric is amazing!  Even during quarantine he retuned my call right away after I called and left a VM about my tooth pain. I have high anxiety and asked so many questions, he was patient the whole time and listened to everything I had to say. He even prescribed me antibiotics on the spot and scheduled an appointment for me to go in next week. I appreciate this kind of service so much he actually cares about his patients.

Grant R. from Summerland, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erick and his staff are fantastic. My Hygienist, Kelsey, was extremely friendly and did an excellent job cleaning my teeth. I highly recommend West Beach Dental!

Alison R. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Bartolome was very personable and funny. Fran, my dental hygienist, was very thorough and knowledgable. The dental cleaning was painless and left my teeth feeling really clean! They were able to refer me to the right people for my problems. There was no wait time. I definitely recommend this dental clinic!

Peilin P. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Had my first visit with Dr. Bartolome and was impressed from beginning to end. Clearly, the doctor knows his stuff and had a wonderful bedside manner.  However, the star of the show was ZULI!  Zuli was at the front desk and was super friendly, personable and kind.  Then, I called today to inquire about my invoice and she was so patient and responsive to all my questions.  Insurance is always complex and I really appreciated Zuli taking the time to explain everything to me.

Ivonne L. from Bellflower, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erick is outstanding. His whole team is professional and engaging. I’m so glad I found this place. I would recommend West Beach Dental to anyone that has been looking for a great Dentist and can’t find one yet., this is the place you’re looking for. Just got a very needed fill during this quarantine and it looks great. I’m so happy it’s done. Thanks Dr. Erick

Kayleigh M. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Erick Bartolome is the best dentist I have ever had! I have been seeing him for a couple years now and I can’t say enough about how great he has been. He is honest, he will not allow you to do needless procedures like some dentists. He is patient and he listens and he is also very gentle. I have had a few cavities filled by him at his office and I have also had teeth whitening trays created there. The teeth whitener works great. You can watch tv while you have you dental work done. The office is immaculate and modern. I always feel welcome when I come in and everyone is very helpful and kind. I am due for a cleaning so I think I will go make an appointment, you should too

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


Dr. Erick is a great dentist. Came in for a general cleaning. He was friendly and a pleasure to talk to. They didn’t try to up-sell me on a deep cleaning or some other extraneous service.  He explained my x-rays and I learned a lot about my teeth in a few minutes. Great location, easy parking. Pros: Easy parking , Friendly staff, Dr. has a gentle hand, very careful and no pain, Easy to talk to

Terry W. from Manhattan Beach, CA (Source: Yelp)


You can’t find a better dentist!  Dr. Erick is incredible. After decades with the same dentist, I found their prices went up and their attitude less friendly. Seemed to be more about raising prices than offering good care. They told me I needed an expensive procedure done, so I sought a second opinion. Dr. Erick said it was not necessary. His honesty and skill won my business sand I have referred at least 6 others to him already.  He is incredibly talented, and genuinely a really nice guy.  Office is clean and welcoming. The staff is super friendly. Kelsey is a great hygienist. I don’t think I have ever had a better cleaning! Who knew you could look forward to going to the dentist?!
