Joanna took my x-rays and was very professional and friendly. She made me feel welcomed. Michelle assisted the dentist and was very friendly, knowledgeable about her job and comforting. She took the time throughout my procedure to make sure I was comfortable. Dr Parra was very nice, she explained her every step where I could understand and also took the time to make sure I was comfortable. Very pleasant experience.

I love this office! Everyone is so friendly and professional! Dr. Parsa is very good with children. She made my daughter feel calm & comfortable, when she is usually nervous when it comes to seeing the dentist. I will continue to bring my kids here! Love the atmosphere and the staff.

first off, let me tell you i hate going to any dr. but going to the dentist is by far the worst, however, with that being said, i must say that in a pinch they were there, i had an emergency and they were able to get me right in. they did what had to be done and i felt so much better afterwards, we made a follow up appt. to finish the work, that appt didnt go as planned but it was for my own good, the work they needed to do had to be done by a surgeon and he wouldnt perform it because my bp was so high, he told me to relax and come back later in the day and if it was down they would do the work, i did what he said, and when i went back he got me taken care of, quick fast and it was done, i dealt with a lot of the staff and they were all so kind and understanding and actually listened to concerns that i had, i wish i had gotten all their names, the one that stands out to me the most was karinna, probably because i dealt with her the most, she saved my day and helped to make my visit amazing, i want to thank everyone at west coast dental in riverside, you are all amazing people and thank you for making my dental experience a good one, you have my business and i will refer you to anyone that asked for a dentist. thank you again, Eva D.

Lorense S. from Rancho Cucamonga, CA (Source: Yelp)


Got to this location by luck. Had lots of pain and they were able to accommodate me to their schedule same day. True I had to wait for about an hour but who doesn’t at any dental or medical office. In between paperwork and all the crap they have to fill and sign. Anyways to make it short the staff and both dentists that work there were extremely nice. Believe me no body likes to go to the dentist. But, at least when the doctor makes you feel relax that’s all that matters. If I would have read the reviews before getting to the location I would have probably not gone here. Thanks God I didn’t read them. I will recommend this place to my family and friends. Oh BTW those of you that talk about your insurance not covering all you need and you getting charged, it’s normal I was an insurance broker and you always have to pay if you want the better stuff. Insurances are a business and they don’t want to pay and lose money so not everything is covered. Anyways I will be comming back to this place. 🙂

I love this office. They have a very clean, friendly, and welcoming environment. All the girls in the front office are very friendly, and Sandra is so nice in explaining all my treatment and options I had in regards to financing. I love having a woman doctor, and Dr. Maria Parsa is just the sweetest and has the best chair side manners I have encountered. The assistants and the Doctor were very helpful in explaining the treatment to me again even when I didn’t really understand the first time. What can I say, I’ve found my go to office and I plan to stay!

Maria V. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I just had my teeth cleaned and laser treatment done at West Coast Dental Nancy the hygienist was PHENOMENAL !!! She is pretty, and knowledgeable, and very gentle. I was very comfortable while she was cleaning my teeth with some special instruments . Felt good getting my teeth scaled , I felt comfortable and at ease just like getting a massage on my gums . Oh! Let me tell you the laser treatment was painless! . I appreciate that Nancy took the time to talk to me about periodontal disease and how germs in our mouth travel in our blood steam affecting our vital organs . Studies suggest that gum disease is linked to coronary artery disease. affecting our heart, lungs, diabetes , premature low weight in babies and so on. My dental experience needless to say it was an “unequal experience”. I enjoyed every moment of it ! I was amazed of how knowledgeable she is in her field of periodontal health management and of how much Nancy truly cares for the well being of her patients . I encourage you to come and take a tour of the office and get familiar with the friendly staff . While your here, make an appointment to meet our AMAZING Doctors ! Dr . YU and Dr. PETERSON. As you know early dental check ups is the best way to detect Cavities and gum disease at an ealy stage. “Who would of thought that cleaning your teeth could potentially add years to your life!!

If you don’t have a family dentist yet, you’re going to love West Coast Dental. I tell all my friends about this place! My family and I have been going to West Coast Dental for years and we will never change dentists. The office is very comfortable, the staff is great, and we love, love, our Dentist!! My husband, three kids, and my parents all love West Coast Dental. We go to West Coast Dental for all of our regular check-ups which includes x-rays. We’ve also been to this dentist for other procedures, including sealants, crowns, teeth cleanings, cavities and root canals. There’s nothing this office can’t do. While the office is busy, you don’t have to wait months for a simple appointment for a check-up. And if you’re worried about cost, don’t be. West Coast Dental accepts major dental insurance plans. But if you’re like us, without dental insurance, you can also take advantage of their discount dental plan.

I HIGHLY recommend this dental office. Dr Parsa was great and made sure she didn’t miss a spot. The whole office staff were very helpful!!! I had been looking for a better dentist all week due to pain on my upper left side. My insurance company found this place and boy am I glad they did!!! The wait was not long. Once I got in they did a full x-ray. Looked in my mouth right away. I usually have high pain tolerance but they didn’t take any chances. Did a deep clean and found the root of the problem. I’m feeling better just exhausted from lack of sleep cuz of pain.

Great friendly staff a wonderful dentist who has lots of patience because I have lots of anxiety when it comes to dentist they were able to work with me and able to treat me and it was wonderful that’s why you keep going back and love how they’re able to work out a payment method I love how they show you different ways about going about your treatment

Melanie P. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here for the first time last week, in severe pain. I was greeted with compassion and a sense of urgency. I was then xrayed by Omarika, who was also so kind. I ended up discovering that my wisdom teeth had come in and needed to be pulled. Dr. Parsa (with assistance from Omarika) was incredibly patient and gentle. I was so nervous but her steady hand and confidence kept me as relaxed as possible and before i knew it i was done and feeling immediately better. I am so thankful for the staff here and highly recommend this dental office. A speciak thank you to Sandra, Olga & Jenny.. who seemed GENUINELY concerned upon my arrival.. And upon my departure, expressed their joy, that I was finally out of pain. The staff here is perfectly balanced in professionalism and genuine human connection – I truly appreciate you all! And to Dr. Parsa, thank you again for your patience, your kindness and your excellent work as a dentist ! I hope all the ladies mentioned including Dr. Parsa, are recognized in someway. Thank you again ladies !

Genesiz M. from San Bernardino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was super scared to make an appointment since I hadn’t seen a dentist in years. So far my experience here with all staff and Drs had been great. Ive had a cleaning, fills and an extraction so far and best experience yet. They numb me up nicely so no pain and they help me stay comfortable and calm. The facility is overall super clean and nice looking which is huge for me. I would definitely recommend this place to friends and family.

Great place for dentistry. Dr Parsa is the best! Friendly staff, & helpful with your insurance needs. I highly recommend this office for everyone & I hear they have the best orthodontist in Southern California as well! Thank you for doing a great job on my front teeth, you can’t even tell they are crowns!

Melanie B. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I do not enjoy going to the dentist, like most, however, I have had great experiences here. Dr. Parsa is wonderful, she doesn’t over-diagnose and is very calming. The staff is very sweet also. My kids also love going to the dentist here and are treated very well. Highly recommend.

Dave S. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had an emergency with my 5 year old son and my regular dentist wouldn’t see him cause I didn’t have a set appointment. The hour was 5:30pm. I called everywhere but no one made the time. West Coast Dental agreed to see my son though they stated they were booked. That was very nice of them and I will thank them for eternities. To my surprise the place was just amazing and the people were fantastic! Angela at the counter deserves a raise for how she handled us and my thanks go out to her. Great great place and I will make them my new dentist. They have everything you need including specialist. Great place!

Jessica H. from Loma Linda, CA (Source: Yelp)


I came here for the oral surgeon to have my wisdom teeth pulled. I had a wonderful experience. To begin, making the appointment was a breeze. I was able to get an 8am appt and was walking out by 8:58. When I arrived I was greeted by the friendly staff and had my paperwork handled quickly. I was called back and the surgeon was friendly, thorough but to the point. He explained the procedure, the aftercare and my options for pain control before he began which I appreciated. I opted for the NO2 during the procedure and he was patient and explained how I should expect to feel. His assistant was also great in making me feel comfortable. The office manager was super friendly and I could even hear her passing through making sure things were moving forward and running smoothly. I would definitely recommend this office to anyone needing an oral surgeon.

Desiree S. from Corona, CA (Source: Yelp)


The staff has been very helpful and informative from the moment we called to see how much it would cost for a filling since my friend does not have insurance and she explained they wouldn’t be able to give a price until he was seen and so she made him an appointment to be seen the next day. The day of his 8am appointment he went in assuming he needed a filling but needed a root canal. They were able to do the root canal the same day. My boyfriend said he liked that the doctor explained everything he was doing.

Kendra B. from Van Nuys, CA (Source: Yelp)


My sister is blind and she asked me to help her pick out a dentist. We asked friends for recommendations and this office’s name kept coming up in our conversations. I also asked my FB and Twitter friends for their recommendations. Some live too far away to make very sensible ones in terms of geographical proximity, but a few of them who live in town mentioned the office too. My sister couldn’t see the facilities, but she could feel them. When we got there she said she could tell it was a clean office. I confirmed it and I actually was impressed. Everything was very clean. They didn’t take very long in calling us in and right away I felt I could trust the dentist who was treating my sister.

Dr Parsa and the rest of the staff here are amazing and made me feel so comfortable. I’ve always been extremely nervous to go to the dentist but the staff made me feel at ease the whole time. I would recommend west coast dental in Riverside to everyone. I absolutely loved every part of my visit here. Thank you!!!!

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


The staff at this location are all very friendly. After a short wait upon arrival I was seen right away.  Dr. Maria Parsa and her assistant Michelle were very professional and helpful with my dental needs.  They addressed all my concerns and fixed everything the same day.  This was my first visit. I have decided to make West Coast Dental, Dr. Parsa, my primary dentist and will be going back in a few weeks for a deep cleaning.  I will definitely recommend Dr. Parsa to all my friends and family.

The office staff at this location is BEYOND 5 star service and class. I know I can go to any dentist and get the same treatments in terms of my oral health but, I do not know that I can see the smiling, courteous office staff. I was just in today and the coordinator and the front staff, the doctor and the entire assistant team are number 1!!!! Highly recommend.

Teneshia S. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)

So I went to West Coast Dental and I was treated nice and the people working were very nice and happy and it seemed they enjoyed their jobs and everyone was patient. I got my cavities out and the people who did that did a great fantastic job. Then I got braces and this orthodontist named Nichole was very helpful and didn’t hurt me when she put my braces on and she taught me very well how to wash my teeth and take care of them.All in all I had a great time and the dentist thanks to Nichole

Jennifer Jurgenson (Source: Google)


The general Dr and the oral surgeon here are AMAZING!! I had an awfully experience as a small child with a dentist, I’m now 37yrs old and have been traumatized ever since and will avoid the dentist at all costs. These dentists make your experience as relaxing, comfortable and as quick as possible for everyone of all ages. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this place. ( minus a couple front desk girls)

I went in there because I was having a bad toothache . It turned out I needed a root canel and some fillings . I was really scared about the root canel because I’ve heard bad/scary stories about it , but the doctors and the assistants there treated me good! And made me feel very comfortable there, greeted with smiles and was able to hold conversations with everyone . Dr Peterson is probably one of the best doctors I’ve ever had. Very nice guy, and made the treatment go by fast ! His assistant Isabel was very helpful and was very quick! She also was very welcoming along side with Laura who took my x rays. She was fast and accurate , and made my visit go by a lot faster than I imagined . The lady’s in the front desk are very nice, and I will definitely be back and bring my family and friends next time . Thank you West Coast Dental for making my visit the best visit I’ve ever encountered

Alli C. from Riverside, CA (Source: Yelp)


I had the pleasure of completing my internship at WCD of Riverside during which my knowledge was stretched and expanded beyond my wildest expectations. This office fully supports and abides by OSHA protocol as well as HIPAA. For those who may not be as well versed in the dental world, OSHA is the Occupational Safety and Health Administration. Basically, this is what ensures ALL instruments and other dental devices are sterilized correctly ultimately for the protection of the patients. HIPAA is the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act. This is what protects patient information. These two components alone speak volumes of the professionalism upheld in this office. Not to mention the friendless of every single employee and staff. I couldn’t think of a better office to have interned at or could have dental care provided

Natasha G. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve always been insecure about my smile because I have crooked teeth, but I never got braces as a young child. But since my career involves meeting with clients and investors face to face, I needed that extra boost of self confidence. So at 32 years old, I decided to go to West Coast Dental to see what my options were for adult braces. First of all, the staff and dentists at West Coast Dental were very helpful and knowledgeable. They sat me down and explained all of my options, including clear aligners which are almost indivisible. I really didn’t want to have metal braces in my teeth. After a few weeks, I decided to get clear aligners instead of metal braces, and I’m so happy with the results. Every time I visit the orthodontist, it’s a pleasant experience. My appointments are quick, and they make sure that I follow up on a regular basis.

This is the dentist I was looking for. My friends had talked about how satisfied they were with services and I had the opportunity to try them out. My friends were right about prices that were more than affordable and the service that was just excellent. So gentle and accommodating. I was expecting there to be very good customer service, but even with the high expectations I had coming in, everyone exceeded them. This is a lovely dentist office and it’s run spectacularly well. I can call them if I have a question and they take my calls. When my father needed to fix his dentures I called and they made a fast appointment for him. We went together and his dentures were fixed. The next day was my youngest sister’s wedding so it a bit of a social emergency too.

5 stars across the board! Dr. Parsa was very knowledgeable and thorough in my exam. She made sure I received the best cleaning I have ever had. She even found a small cavity that my previous dentist overlooked. The entire staff including her assistant Michelle and Office Manager Aide were very professional and courteous. I will never go anywhere else. Highly recommended!

Ron Dehn (Source: Google)


This was my first visit with Dr. Parsa. I was very happy with the experience. The way I was treated reflected how thorough, competent and well trained the staff and Dr. Parsa behaved and operated. With the latest high tech equipment she and her staff were able to provide me with photos of my teeth in real time. Dr. Parsa was able to point out the problem teeth and gum conditions that I could see clearly. All my questions I asked about procedure prices and my insurance coverage’s were answered. I tend to ask a lot of questions. I’m pleased I found a new dentist that I would recommend after one visit. Thank you Dr. Parsa and staff.

I’ve been to many dentists in my life, and I’ve tried every type of office, from high-end boutique dentists in Beverly Hills and Newport Beach to larger “factory” dentists in Los Angeles and Santa Barbara. Finding a good dentist and dental office is much like finding a good mechanic. It often comes down to word-of-mouth (no pun intended) or who you know. I’ve had subpar dental work for years (with much painful drilling), so I was intrigued when a friend told me about West Coast Dental and the amazing dentist they have there along with a fabulous staff. My friend raved about this place, so I figured it was worth the drive to Riverside on my way to do business in the Inland Empire. I made an appointment with Dr. Parsa to have my teeth cleaned and some teeth filled (what can I say? I love my sweets…). I also was interested in getting teeth whitening trays due to my bad coffee habit. (Yes, there’s a reason I smile with my mouth closed and all of my photos have been photoshopped…I have very dark yellow, messed-up teeth.) I immediately liked the office atmosphere (clean and friendly) and the staff. Everyone I encountered (Karina, Roberto, Isabel, Michelle, and Sandra) was professional, kind, and went out of their way to make me feel comfortable. I have an abject fear of all things dental, but everyone at West Coast Dental made me feel safe and happy. Then I met the doctor and was very impressed. She really knew her stuff! I found out she graduated from Loma Linda, which is a highly esteemed school. Frankly, Dr. Parsa was the best dentist I’ve ever had. She was personable, friendly, knowledgable, and took the time to explain the procedures to me. She was understanding of my fear of dentists and pain, and she was very patient with me. Her work was superb. She is a highly intelligent doctor who really knows her technique. I felt that I was in the care of a highly trained specialist who took her work seriously. She cares deeply for the patients, and it shows. Her team all seemed to love her, and she seemed to love them in return. As a patient, I found the atmosphere of this dental office to be extremely positive, and it all came down to Doctor Parsa and her excellent team. I wish every dental office could operate from this business model. The only bummer…I live far away. I guess I’ll be driving to Riverside every six months to get my teeth cleaned and worked on. Oh, I forgot to mention…my lemon-yellow teeth are now a beautiful shade of pearly white, thanks to West Coast Dental’s teeth whitening trays. No more photoshop–Yay!

My first experience was not great. I know I’m an anxious nervous wreck at the dentist but the way the female dentist treated me was unfair. She made me feel like shit for being nervous. My blood pressure was high. She spent 3 seconds in my mouth and then told me “there’s nothing I can do because of your blood pressure ” and got up and left. Then presented me with a $2000 estimate. Her assistants were very kind which is why i left a 5 Star. If I didn’t need my wisdom teeth out I wouldn’t of gone back. BUT! I’m glad I did. The oral surgeon was FANTASTIC he made me feel so calm, his assistants, the two gentlemen were so helpful and nice. The woman who recovered me after surgery was so down to earth and wonderful. I wish I knew everyone’s names. Thank you so much. The female dentist is garbage but the rest of your staff is wonderful

Rach F. from Moreno Valley, CA (Source: Yelp)


I interned at wcd and came to find out their staff is amazing/highly skilled crew. They’re all very friendly and make the patients feel welcome and leave with a smile. The hygienist Nancy is amazing! the way she describes what’s going on in your mouth into detail anyone can understand. It’s a great place for both kids and adults.

Adriana Gomez (Source: Google)


Excellent office! Very professional, great with kids. The staff was very helpful and friendly. Sandra the treatment coordinator was great at explaining the treatment so I could fully understand it. Dr. Parsa and Michelle were awesome and made my son feel very comfortable. We will definitely be coming back.

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


From a courtesy reminder 2 days prior to appointment, to the walking out of the door, the staff was courteous, professional, and extremely knowledgeable in their field. My first time to this office and I knew I was going to fill out paper work so I got there 10 minutes early. As soon ad I finished with my paperwork, they walked me into getting my x-rays and go over a check up to see what exactly needs to get done. Great atmosphere, clean setting and all around a 5 star business. Dentist explained in detail all procedures and described exactly what I suppose to feel while he was doing the work. The Dental Hygienist was very thorough. And the young ladies in the front office were very helpful. Thank you all for everything you do to keep this office running as smoothly as it does.
