My insurance referred me here for an emergency appointment. And they were able to see me right away and Omar was on top of things and making sure I had a good experience. He kept checking in on me while I was there if I needed anything or if everything was okay. Overall good experience and I’m definitely recommending this Office.

First time coming here and I’m totally gonna keep this place as my dentist. I thought it was going to take super long due to being a new patient but it was less than an hour my stay there. Staff (from front to back office) is very welcoming and provide great quality service. Dentist is very detailed and answers all questions and concerns.

My family and I have been scheduling our yearly check-ups at West Coast Dental for many many years and we are very satisfied. They are flexible with their scheduling, open on Saturdays, have payment plans available for these who qualify, and give courtesy calls to verify appointments. This staff is very professional and caring. I highly recommend West Coast Dental.

Not that long of a wait I was seen  15 mins after my appointment time.  Very friendly staff and It was explained to me about the work I needed and what was covered and not covered by my insurance. Never felt pressured into getting the work done there or right away unlike smile care who was trying to convince me I needed work done right away when I had visit them a few weeks ago.  West coast dental did the work for a far less of a price then what smile care was trying to charge me.

This was my first visit to this office. I found it through 1 800 dentist. Im glad they recommended this place. This people here was so professional nice and courteous. The dentist I seen made me feel very comfortable. Im glad he will be the one doing the work on me. I wish i wouldve found him sooner.

I am updating my review from 2 weeks ago. I had an incident and went back to the clinic to cancel my braces contract. I met with Marisol the office manager, and she was very professional and kind in dealing with the situation and I was happy to give it another try and stay with west coast dental for my braces work, the doctor is really nice and Adam the assistant is also very kind. Thank you!

This is the best dental office ever! My husband and I are new to the area and we’re lucky enough to find this place so close to home. The first time we came we were greeted right away. I let them know I was a new patient and they had me in the system with paperwork done in less than 10 minutes! It’s obvious they value their customers and it’s obvious they love their job because there are nothing but smiles everywhere you look. (For someone who hates the dentist as much as I this is a BIG deal) My husband has been once and got xrays, cleaning, exam, and cavities filled on the same day. I have been back twice and their consistent customer service is unbeatable. Another benefit is that if you need emergency work done they usually find a way to get you in either that day or the next and are even open on Saturdays.  I could go on but to sum it up if you’re looking for your new dentist office look no further because this is it! Tip: *Always try to book morning appointments you’ll be in and out much faster.

The staff were very nice and I will definitely continue to use their services in the future!However the wait time was not so great. My appointment was scheduled at 9am and it was almost 10am by the time I was seen. I hope that will improve the next time I’m there.

I came in as an emergency walk in and they took me in quickly. Everything was explained and he procedures needed were set in motion. Staff was kind and very helpful through out the process. They all work quickly and efficiently. The doctors and assistants all were kind and compassionate when it came to dealing with the pain and were also very professional. The front desk crew are very friendly and helpful.

Last time I was here was a decade ago and I now have a daughter who I came to take in for her first dental cleaning and the whole team was amazing! They were super patient and kind with her and the whole process was super quick and easy. We came as a walk in and will definitely be making this our go to dentist ! I was afraid that I was guna have to hop around until I was satisfied with one, but this office met all my expectations.

I’ve been coming here since I was a child . I honestly keep coming because they are so nice and very professional. And honestly I’ll keep coming here until I can’t any more . All of the staff is very nice and helped me switch my location from my insurance. Definitely recommend coming here.

I had such a great experience bringing both my kids here. The staff was fast and friendly. They took care of all my kids dental issues in 1 visit. I made both follow up appointments already . I got friendly reminders via mail and email . With my busy schedule this helps me from missing these important appointments to keep my kids healthy. Thank you West Coast Dental !.

Dr.A was very helpful and answered all my questions. The staff is great. Angie was very helpful and explain everything and provided my options. The X-ray tech Evie was great. She  had a positive attitude!! Over all great office!.

I’m usually scared of going to the dentist, but this place made me feel good about myself and it feels pretty comfortable. This place is very clean, not once I’ve seen it dirty. As for the staff, very friendly and also very encouraging.

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


Although I found West Coast Dental Group kind of randomly I feel very safe and very comfortable coming to them. Now, I won’t go anywhere else. They made some minor, inexpensive cosmetic improvements that were very impressive, and they fixed some things that I didn’t know it could be fixed. My front teeth look perfect now. They also addressed my gums and suggested a much-needed deep cleaning, which I got done. There is an immediate Improvement but overall feeling of my mouth and health of my teeth. Most importantly the appearance has been improved to really a high level.

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


I am currently having work down that has to be completed in stages. I have had 2 extractions, fillings, cleaning and a bridge prep. The work that has been completed this far has been very professional and I look forward to the end results once all the work is completed.

I hate the dentist! But I had a great experience here! Everyone was so polite, respectful and professional. the front staff checking me In was great. And once I went back they explained everything so well. They Gave me options and outlined a great plan for my issues. I’m definitely coming here for all my dental needs. I’m so happy I found this place.

West coastal dentist is one of the most fulfilling dentists I have ever been too. Their personnel is full of potential, patience, and willingness to meet the patients needs and concerns. The doctors are very friendly and very effective in their job doing any procedure. Doctors explain each process they are going to perform and make sure patients are aware of what’s being done to maintain a positive relationship with the patient.  Overall, this dentist provides you with the best experience not only are they efficient, their service is fast as well.

West coast dental was quite a good experience on my end! Even on a hectic busy morning, WC dental team portrayed warm and welcoming presence to all dynamics of customers. I also tend to not sit well with hospital-like environments but Jaime was awesome throughout the process of teeth x-rays. WC dental team is informative as they are flexible, they work with you and do their best to present things to your side! Highly recommended.

I arrived as a walk in. Filled out paper work and was seen less than a 45 min. The service was so fast, the DR and assistance were so friendly . Nery, explained “what my insurance covered and what was due out of pocket. ” west coast dental keep up the great work.

I came in for a cleaning right when the office opened. The waiting room was full of patients for both the general and surgery consultants. I was out in 48 minutes. The front desk ladies, the doctor, and the assistant were kind and helpful. Will be back in 6 month! I returned to remove two bottom wisdom teeth. I was the earliest appointment, 7 a.m. I sat in the chair approx. 10 mins after 7 a.m. since I had to read and fill out the consent form. I was out within 30 minutes after the consent form was filled. Overall quick and painless, due to the medication.

One of the things I hate the most about going to the dentist is that they make you wait a long time and they do just a little work at a time and have you keep coming back. Lots of time taken, but here they dont do that. I’ve had 1 root canal, which took maybe 20 min. And 3 crowns put in in so little time I was amazed. The staff are great and if asked will go over the details as many times as needed to completely understand. Made my experience painless. I’m very happy with the price and outcome.

This is the BEST Dental office I have been to!!! All the staff is very friendly and they have phenomenal customer service. Great environment and always make you feel welcomed. They explain exactly what work you need done in a way anyone can understand and if you can’t afford it they help create a payment plan that works for you. All the staff works to meet your needs no matter what, they work around your schedule and always make sure you are comfortable and satisfied with your treatment. And on top of that they have all the specialty dentist you need so no need to be running around town, it’s a one stop shop! Love this place and HIGHLY RECOMMEND to everyone.

I recommend West Coast Dental Group for anyone looking for a great dentist. They explain everything to me before the treatment so I understand. The office is very clean and all of the assistants are friendly , supportive and knowledgeable The price was also really affordable. I have been a patient with this dental office for a year and won’t go anywhere else. Please go in for a consultation if your looking for a dental work.

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


First I have to be honest, I am a coward when it comes to the dentist. My past experiences have been down terrifying… until I came here. The staff is beyond friendly, informational, and patient. My son and I usially do dual appointmenrs due to my schedule and their very accomodating. I have absolutely no complaints about this office. You can expect a clean, friendly, coward-friendly environment when you walk in the door. By the way walking in the door you get a hello from everyone at the front desk…makes you feel like a rock star.

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

Love this place, been coming here for years. Everyone from the doctors to the front desk staff everyone is amazing. They make you feel welcome and everything is explained throughly. Highly recommend this place.

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


I came in for my 1st time yesterday. I hadn’t been to the dentist in a couple years basically(so yes very ashamed and embarrassed when I dealt with all the people who helped me). Despite all that, the staff was very kind and kept making me laugh and smile the whole way through. I got Lazer cleaning done and it hurt like hell but it was worth it. They are helping me gain confidence and they are fixing my smile so I’m very happy with that. They did such a great job with me yesterday that now even my boyfriend wants to come here for his services also. I feel they are honest and caring so I look forward to getting things done right with them.

Eveleen L. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I enjoy bringing my children into this office. The staff is very nice. Especially the front desk, they are very cheery and nice. The lobby and rooms are all always very clean. The doctors are happy to answer any questions that a patient might have. What I like the most is the the availability to schedule all my children the same day back to back with out a probem. I would recomend this place to others who are looking for a family office. They are not only nice to the kids but adults as well.
