I only recently started coming to American Smile Family Dentistry, but I can say with confidence that the staff and Dr. Arshadnia are very helpful and accommodating to their customers. They have all answered my questions and addresses my concerns, and have worked with my insurance in such a way to support my needs. I’d recommend this location for your dental needs. Thank you, American Smile!

Dentist showed that he actually cares for your teeth. Gave me advice and suggested stuff that I need to do to have a healthier smile. Just went in for a check up and dr ended up removing a cavity, and two wisdom teeth. Staff is very friendly

Dr. Shawn A. Has been the best most professional dentist I have ever  met. I have always had issues with my teeth so I have a lot of experience with pain and dentist visits.he makes me feel so comfortable and I fully trust his work and recommendations. He is great with all patients and I would definitely without a doubt recommend him. Plus!!!!!! Great staff! Very clean office!

Jennifer R. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. “A”, is a wonderful, compassionate dentist. I chose American smile because of the caring environment. I hadn’t been to the dentist in 40 years. After evaluating multiple dentists, I chose to go here and it’s proved to be and outstanding choice. I had a beautiful bridge done a year ago and am still very happy with it. Now all my family goes here. Their prices are reasonable and their office staff is friendly and helpful. Thanks Dr. A!

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


I was moved by the experience with dr Shawn and his friendly and experienced staff. I was kind of reluctant to go to dentist. But I badly needed dental work. Dr. Shawn helped me see what the problem was on my teeth and fixed it much faster that I could imagine. They use state of art tech. Dig xray and dig camera. I could see the image of my teeth and the problem clearly on the tv screen. Their cost  was reasonable. I received every the best care with the best cost possible. It was way less than what other dentists  were trying to charge me. Thx Dr. Shawn and staff for a good job done.

David M. from San Fernando, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Arshadnia and the staff at American Smile have renewed my faith in dentistry!!!! My last dentist And office staff in Mission Hills gave me the feeling that I was merely a number on a list. The staff and Dr. Arshadnia actively listened to my concerns, both regarding physical pain AND Financial issues. I wasn’t turned away. In fact I was embraced as a new patient. My concerns were quickly put to rest. Dr. Arshadnia is a kind, gentle and caring professional. Both my wife and I are very happy patients of American Smile and will continue to be long term. Thank you, to the staff AND thank you Dr. Arshadnia for your compassion and care for my family. Lastly, he has a great sense of humor that is infectious!! After multiple visits, I always leave with a smile on my face!

Blanca C. from West Covina, CA (Source: Yelp)


This Dr saved my tooth and sanity. I have been experiencing pain for a while until it became severe. They took me in right away as emergency. Ended up with a root canal and a crown. He was painless. Staff are great. Prices very reasonable. I recommend these guys to everyone.

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


These doctors are good. I went on Saturday and had all my work done after 5 years of neglect. They helped me pay in monthly payment with no interest. I even watched my favorit movie on big screen TV while he was working on my teeth. I was referred by my co-workers and I refer my family too. Thank you Dr. A & Dr. S

Susan B. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I hate going to the dentist. I avoid, procrastinate and delay to the point of pain. Over the years, I have gone to many dentists; some good, some terrible. But Dr. Arshadnia is outstanding! When I met him, I was in pain, and needed a lot of work. He immediately put me at ease, and over the course of the next several weeks, proved to be patient, kind, gentle, and best of all… highly skilled in dentistry. My teeth look amazing, and I am more confident when I smile. As far as cost, my procedures were no more than other quotes I received.  Also, the office staff is professional, and genuinely nice. I never YELP, but I felt that I should let the local Sylmar community know they have a great Dentist in the area.

Patricia C. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Amazing! I was referred to this office by my new health  care coverage  and did not know what to expect. I was welcomed from the moment I walked in and felt absolutely comfortable and at ease. Great team, so glad to have found a dentist I trust.

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


Excellent dental care and prvention, professional and caring. I have been a patient for  many years I have always got the best service, I recommend American dental, to anyone who wants to manta in or retain there perfect smile

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


The office is very clean and up to date. I am very scared of going to see a dentist, but the Dr. there was very nice and had a chair side manners. Made me feel comfortable and not scared . It was a great experience.  I will make sure to go there again. thank you guys.

Hector G. from Lancaster, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is by far the nicest and friendliest dental place that I can think of there staff and dentist make a regular check up a breeze they have worked on my teeth for some time now and I have to say there is no other dentist I’d go to thank you once again for the awesome work definitely recommend this place.

Kat T. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr Arshadina is currently taking amazing care of my husband whose neglected a broken tooth for over 2 years and he’s explained everything and is very kind and understanding. We will be back next week to keep up with his care. Very happy with the friendly and compassionate service!

Jeffrey G. from Chicago, IL (Source: Yelp)


Recently moved to California and I’m so glad I found an amazing dentist that I can trust. The facility is clean and welcoming. The staff bright and professional. Dr A. was extremely knowledgeable and transparent. His chair-side manner was warm and attentive. Ive had a few dentists that have ripped me off and over diagnosed my cavities. I felt completely covered and safe knowing that Dr. A is a no BS dentist. Highly recommend American Smile!

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


The BEST experience of my life. I have been to too many dentists in my life ever since I was a little child. I was always scared from going to the dentist, and had nightmares about the bad experiences. The dentists at this office made all the fear and the terrible experience go away. Not to mention that I drive all the way from Los Angeles to Sylmar to go to this specific dental office, which I was referred by a co worker who lives in the area. Thank you Jessica for recommending, and thank you to The American Smile Dental care staff and doctors. My upper front teeth are treated and crowned. I do get a lot of complements for my amazing smile now! I do send my co workers to this office. Kudos for American Smile Dental Care!

Jon R. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been extremely nervous about going to the dentist, but Dr. A made this procedure so releiving. He always checked on me to make sure I was doing ok, was gentle and always made sure to explain what he was doing. I had two extractions done that were painless and without complications. I definitely recommend this place

Second time coming into this office and I have not been disappointed. Prices are very affordable they put me on a payment plan. And haven’t had any complaints with my dental work. Definitely recommend coming in if you need a good dentist.

These guys are just amazing, I had my front Veneers redone by Dr. Arshadnia, and they just look stunning!!! Prices are very fair, clean office, great cosmetic dentistry and they treated me same day as emergency. Staff are great and very welcoming.

Eliza A. from Lake View Ter, CA (Source: Yelp)


I went in for my annual cleaning. They had new staff in front and back but their service was as good as before. Honest doctor with reasonable fees. I had to change one of my old silver filling to wh because it was getting sensitive (over 10 years old). Doctor knew I’m a chicken and took his time and was very gentle. I recommend this place to all people who are scared of dentist

Chantal U. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


One of the best dentist offices I have ever been too. The girls at the front desk are so sweet, and very helpful. The office gives off a very welcoming feeling, it doesn’t make me nervous like any other dentist office or doctors office. This is the place to go for DENTAL WORK!!!!Also the dental assistants are super sweet and have such gentle and soft hands while working on my teeth. forsure the #1 Dentist in the VALLEY!!!

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


Came in last week and had one of the best dental experiences I’ve had so far. Dr Arshadnia was really attentive with my dental care and honestly I’m happy with the outcome. I went to other dental offices and got some veneers done. Not the greatest service there. I came here once and honestly it was the best experience and decision. My veneers came out flawless and on top of that I didn’t have to wait. They’re really good on scheduling appointment so you don’t have to wait in line and the Front desk was very polite. Definitely recommending this office to my friends and family. They worked with me through every step of the day.

After 40 years of not going to a dentist, I chose Dr. A because of his compassion and detailed explanation to my son. Dr. A then did a bridge for me a year ago and I’m completely satisfied with his work and his attention to detail and me! I and my family have had wonderful experiences here we all highly recommend Dr. A at American Smile. They have Comparable prices to other dentists, easy payment plans and friendly office staff.

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


My family and I have been coming with Dr Arshadnia  for the last 7 Years , I can honestly say He is a great Dentist, very professional as well as his staff. My son just finished with his Invisalign . Very happy and satisfied.

Kathy A. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


So after may years of horrible dental experience and rude comments by Dr.’s and now dentures later I think I have found the perfect Dentist for me.  My nervousness, fear and uncomfortableness by rude people have always keep me away. This was my first visit and I can’t express on how comfortable, happy and excited I am to start my new me smile cause it’s been a long while since I could give a good smile.  Dr Arshandnia thank you for making me feel comfortable and not to mention thank you for the hug of confidence that everything is going to be ok.  Not to mention, that any age deserves a great smile. Sincerely your new patience.  Ms Alvarado.

Natalie C. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)

Love how they treated me right away even if it was only a check up . Overall you should really come here.

Mauricio G. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff are very friendly and professional. I had a enjoyable time at the dentist, which is surprising considering there working on the soft tissue in my mouth. I can honestly say I trust the staff here to take good care of my now shiny and cavity free teeth. Great work guys!

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


I want to give a shout out to American Smile you guys are the most professional dental office I’ve ever been to !!!!!!! I highly recommend the greatest doctor I’ve ever met Dr. Arshadnia because his work ethic is incredible and you can see how he’s very dedicated to his job like no other dentist is. And a Doctor that’s very dedicated to his job will be dedicated to the patients well being. He’s very informative of the procedures he will do and answers your questions before starting to work hands on. American Smile see you guys soon and thanks for everything. P.S. DONT WAIT! REQUEST DR. A !

Julie W. from Sylmar, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been seeing Dr. Arshadnia for a couple of years now, and I am very happy with the care and professionalism from him and his staff.  Everyone’s very nice.  The office is clean and has an open floor plan, which is much better than my last dentist, where each exam room felt like I was in a closet.  I just kind of picked this dental office when my old one stopped accepting my insurance, and I really lucked out.  I have even recommended a couple of co-workers to this dentist, and they’re both very happy with him. Dr. Arshadnia is very gentle with the procedures, and patiently answers my questions.  I have received four porcelain crowns from this office now, and I am very happy with their look and feel.  I never wait long too be seen, either.  And here’s an added bonus: the shopping center where it’s located has loads of parking.

Jennifer V. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I‘ve been coming here for 2 Years Already and I love it! Everyone is so friendly and really really helpful. I Get Really Nervous When I Go To The Dentist But Dr. A is really gentle and he’s soooo Funny! I highly recommend everyone to come here! You Won’t Regret It!

A. E. from Pacoima, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been extremely petrified about going to the dentist. but I must say, my visit with Dr. A went very well 6/12/2018. He took his time and reassured me that I was in good care throughout my procedure…I had very little to no pain while having my wisdom teeth pulled and a deep cleaning!!!I highly recommend.

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


I highly recommend this dentist. I had to go to another dentist last year due to my insurance but I was able to come back this year, and I’m very happy. Great service!

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

In 1991, a group of dedicated dental professionals saw the need for quality and multi-specialty dental care in many communities throughout the greater Los Angeles area. Their vision was to open state-of-the-art dental care practices that would combine the highest standard of care, the latest technologies, and the services of talented general dentists and specialists to meet the needs of the communities they serve. Today, that vision has become a reality. West Coast Dental and its affiliated practices have many convenient locations to serve you with an unparalleled level of expertise, service, convenience, and care. Inside of these practices, general dentists and specialists work side-by-side with their friendly, well-trained associates to ensure their patients get the most appropriate care and a high level of personal service. World-class care and caring is right around the corner at a West Coast Dental affiliated practice; Southern California’s friendly neighborhood dental experts. Dr. Arshadnia knew he wanted to be a dentist as far back as high school. Once he earned a degree in neurosciences from the University of California, Los Angeles, Dr. Arshadnia made his way to the New York University College of Dentistry. Despite the demanding curriculum, he excelled in his studies and earned his doctor of dental surgery. Dr. Arshadnia likes to unwind by spending time outdoors with his wife and two children.
