★★★★★

Dr. Gregory Kaplan is a wonderful and professional Dentist. He is a very caring Dentist,who always puts his patients first! His calm demeanor is very reassuring, and his expertise and knowledge and passion for dentistry is very apparent. Wilshire Center Dental is constantly upgrading its office and technology. They always go out of their way to accommodate me for appointments and procedures. I would highly recommend Wilshire Center Dental and Dr. Gregory Kaplan. Stacey R.

They were so kind and patient especially Verma the office manager she made sure that we were able to finish our apt after a 2 hr drive ! It was something that will always remember her kind and considerate way about her she was like a guardian angel! I want to say how much today meant because my son won’t have any pain and as a parent we all want our children to not suffer! And because of her and her loving nature he won’t have to.

Dr. Kaplan and his team are professionals.  the office is large, but everyone is kind and my wait times have been short.  They were honest and efficient each visit. And I love that they have plenty of free parking.  I’ve been a patient for just over a year now and no complaints

I’ve been going to Wilshire Center Dental for several years and every time I go to my next appointment, it seems they’ve upgraded or added some new technology to their offices. They showcase movies in the waiting room that pleases everyone and keeps the kids entertained and the wait is always minimal if you’re on time or early.  The overall vibe is calm, clean, and a friendly atmosphere and they are always professional and address all my dental needs. I love the x-ray system where after they take the pictures, they are immediately available to my dentist which helps him find my occasional tooth issues.  If you need something more serious done, they have the speciality center upstairs and those guys are pros.  I’ve never previously enjoyed a root canal until I had them performed at Wilshire Dentist. Seriously. No matter how big or small the issue is, they have a solution. They are well educated and know how to cater to the patient. I would strongly recommend anyone who is looking for pain-free general and cosmetic dentistry and who wants to see how the dentist visit should be.  Thank you to the entire staff and keep up the great work! You Guys Rock!

Wilshire Center Dental Group taking care of my dental health for many years. They have great dentists and specialists. I recommend Wilshire Center to many of my friends who become their regular patients. I never like to go to any clinics but always happy to go to Wilshire Center. Friendly atmosphere, good and fast service! Thank you for having me as a patient:))

Wilshire Center Dental Group turned around an awful experience for me.   I’m grateful. I went to Dental Group of Beverly Hills for a 6-month visit.  I was a new patient there.  I was told on that first visit that decay on my back tooth (#2)  required a crown.    I was also told that tooth #19 required a crown and crown lengthening, among other things. The sticker price on this work was $850 for #2 and $1,115 for tooth #19 after insurance (you should see the price before insurance is applied). I went online to look at crown lengthening because I hadn’t heard of it before.  The procedure is extreme and in my opinion should not be recommended to patients on a routine basis.  Cutting into and removing part of the bone for a crown means weakening the tooth structure.  If there are complications or future decay, what then after you’ve already taken away part of the bone? I felt very uncomfortable about the recommended work considering that I floss and brush my teeth each day more than the recommended amount and my teeth are in pretty good shape. This made me very concerned not only about the cost but about the necessity of the work that was prescribed. I knew instinctively that I needed a second opinion.  I expressed my concerns to my insurance carrier and got the green light to pursue a second opinion and was told that it would be covered. That’s when I found Wilshire Center Dental Group.  Dr. Gregory Kaplan looked at my previous x-ray from just two weeks before from the other dentist’s office and had his support staff do a few more x-rays. He only recommended one simple filling for the decay on #2 and he recommended  nothing for #19 which has no signs of decay. He assured me that the approach in his office is conservative. Dr. Kaplan and his staff are very kind and did not flinch in the face of my many questions (alot of which were brought about because of the concerns I had from the previous dentist visit). The price with co-pay for the one filling?  $85 and all the bones in my mouth are still in tact .

I am a very nervous patient and I’ve needed a lot of time in the dental chair lately. From my extensive visits, I can honestly say that all of the dentists at Wilshire Center Dental Group are top notch! Here’s the list of the poor men that have had the honor of me in their chair: Dr. Gregory Kaplan (regular care, sensitivity treatments, implant, wisdom tooth removal), Dr. Cedno, (oral surgery) Dr. Naim (gum surgery), and Dr. Phan. (Root canal was not a big deal in spite of my fears.) I’m not good at planning my hygiene appointments so I usually go with whoever is available and I’ve been happy with everyone – Son, Laurie, Margie and Luis – I’m comfortable with all of them. I also find Wilshire Center Dental Group to be cleaner than most of the doctor’s offices I’ve been to.  Instruments are sterilized and taken out of sealed bags which gives me a level of confidence I haven’t had in other offices.  Wisdom tooth out, check.  Cyst removed, check. Root canal completed, check. One out of 2 periodontal surgeries completed, check. Teeth straightened, check! Next on my list, an implant and a small perio surgery… and then I’ll hopefully be dentist free for a while.

★★★★★

Dr. Greg is the best! He goes out of his way to treat patients with best options for least discomfort and optimal outcome. I had a crown done with him. It was painless and the crown fit like a glove. No need to adjust. I walked out very comfortable with perfectly fit crown.Dr .Greg is always kind, reassuring and efficient. I always dreaded going to a dentist but since I discovered  Wilshire Dental I am much better about keeping my cleanings regular. I would highly recommend this place.

★★★★★

I was extremely pleased with initial service I received from Dr Kaplan, his staff and Jessica in Dr Lo’s office. They took the time to address all my questions. Parking in the back of the office was free and convenient. This is a very busy office but the staff treated me like I was the only one there. Denise C.

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

★★★★★

Had an amazing experience here. The staff and dentists are by the far the kindest people I’ve encountered. Dr. Kaplan is the absolute best! He went through every little detail and made sure I understood what was going on in my mouth and what had to be done. On top of that, we had a lovely conversation about schools. I am so glad I switched over to this place! And the wait can get long and it gets pretty cold in there. Bring a sweater!.

Booked last week for my daughter, son, myself and my wife.  Went today to the appointment and it was mixed up. They mixed the dates around on us. Our kids were suppose to be on the following Tuesday and my wife and I were suppose to be today! I specifically asked for certain dates and they confirmed with me. Went today and they told my wife that our appointment was yesterday! Not only that since my wife and I missed our appointment, which should have been for today not yesterday, we were charged for missed appointment. Made another appointment and hope the charges will go away. Out first time around had no problems and loved it. This just is more of an irritation and bothersome because of the charges that were not our fault. Edit – Changed to 5 stars. The just received a phone call and everything was handle with professionalism and care. Thank you.

★★★★★

Booked two appointment for both my boys (ages 9, and 12 years old) and the receptionist was very calm, kind and professional. Today (July 16, 2014), took my boys. Filled out their new patient sheets and was off to see their new dentist. The dentist was very patient as so was the assistant. Both my boys were nervous since it had been a while that they’ve been here. Both boys received proper cleaning, counseling and treatment. I am happy and glad I was sent here. Free parking in the back is a huge bonus for me too.

★★★★★

The Wilshire Dental Group were superb this past week!  First, a bump in my gum was diagnosed by the person cleaning my teeth.  An appointment was set with the dentist for 2 days later, when he diagnosed an abscess.  That same day I was able to see a specialist who said I needed a root canal.  This was done right then.  I have just left the dentist office after getting my permanent filling done 2 days after the root canal!!  Fantastic service.  And needed too, for I leave on vacation in 2 day’s time!

The Staff Here Is Very Friendly, It Might Look A Little Quiet But They Have A lot Of Patients. From The Front Desk, To The Dental Assistants To The Actual Dentist It Was All Such An Easy Process! I Was So Nervous About My Root Canal & everyone Made Sure I Was Taken Care Of.

Lori H. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

The best experience! I was teaching at an event all day when my veneer popped off! I called and they told me to come right away and they will help. I was greeted by the most kind woman at the front desk and immediately taken back to get my tooth repaired. They were all so friendly, kind and let me know step by step what they were doing! So grateful they got me in after getting turned down by other offices. Loved everyone working there!

They’re very reliable with what you need . They don’t take advantage of you as a patient, they’re respectful,loving and kind. I have been coming for about 40 years on and off. And when I left to other dentist they abuse my dental insurance. I don’t care to drive do far from Rancho Cucamonga to Los Angeles I feel safe with my dental office. They always take great care for me and my family.

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

★★★★★

I have been going to this office for almost two years now and have never been disappointed by the service. Dr. Kaplan is so wonderful and kind and has always made me feel comfortable. No one LOVES going to the dentist, but now I actually look forward to my visits. Also, there is really great food in the area, so if you are booking an appointment, do it around lunch time! The receptionist is also really sweet and easy to deal with, whenever I book an appointment, they make sure it is convenient for me and never give me any attitude. I have also been seeing the orthodontist in the building, Dr. Nancy Gobel and she is also really great!

I’ve always had a very positive and pain-free experience at WCDG over the past 10 years. Their team is always professional, courteous, and they take your comfort and safety to the next level. I would strongly recommend Wilshire Center Dental to any of my friends and family. They’re superstar team can even fix your crazy, jacked-up grills as they are cosmetic dentists who want you to look your best. Everything for your dental needs is all in one place so they’ve got you covered. Hit em up

I love the proffesionalism, the fast service and the experience in general was great. My daughter had a problem and they were able to direct me to the specialist that could tale care of it sooner.The waiting time was less than 15 mins. They did the x rays immediately. The office was very clean and organized, I would definitely recommend their service.

Shamus from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Healthgrades)

★★★★★

He is the best! Dr. Kaplan makes dental visits lighthearted and dare I say it…fun! Yes, it is still the dentist’s office, but he is kind, personable, and professional. Always has fun stories to share and makes an effort to bond with his patients. Over the years I’ve been extremely happy with the level of care I have received.

R. from Anaheim, CA (Source: Yelp)

★★★★★

This doc is by far the BEST dentist I’ve ever had the opportunity to be a patient of. I was terrified to have my root canals, because of bad experience in the past. But this doc knew exactly what he was doing and did it pain free!!! I was only scheduled to have one out of three root canals done, yet he was so fast and so painless he offered to do the other two while I was there. He was so nice to me and we talked about how important it is to take care of my teeth from now on. I literally wanted to hug this man after he was done… I’m so thankful for him!! Even though I hope I never will need more work done I would definitely recommend him to anyone who has bad experience in past he will change your thoughts !!!  I’d give him ten stars if k could !! Thank you Kaplan.

Very professional and caring dentist and staff  and the best part, they are HONEST, you  get an itemized bill and they explain what your insurance covers, no hidden costs nor lies.  I have evaded going to the  desntist for years, until I founded  this office.  I have recommended  them to all my friends and the first thing  I tell them is, THEY ARE PROFFESSIONALS, THEY HAVE AMAZING EQUIPMENT AND THEY ARE  HONEST.

I have been coming to WCDG for about 20 years and keep returning because I trust them to do geat work on my teeth and that of my family. The staff are very professional, personable and know you by name, even when it has been a while since the last visit. I once left to find a dentist close to home, but quickly returned. WCDG has stability in the community and they do not have a high turnover in staff. It is nice to be greeted by a familiar face and a friendly smile when visiting the central office.

Wanted to write an updated review for the office since my last review was in 2011. I’ve been a patient of WCDG for over 10 years now and have sent plenty of friends, family, and coworkers over.  I came in for a routine checkup the other week and the office reception has been totally redone.  Besides for the outdated TV that plays some classics like Grease…the floors, walls, and counters look great. I like that the office is efficient with patients, but still manages to feel mom and pop.  The girls at the front desk are very sweet and the doctors & hygienists I’ve seen over the years have taken great care of my Smile.

Good, quick service at this dentist office! Dr. answered and addressed any of my questions/concerns. He was forthcoming with information, seemed caring and was very helpful. Location: easily found off Wilshire with fenced free PARKING LOT in the back. HUGE plus since most places don’t offer that in LA. Building: older building but nicely kept offices. Comfortable chairs, nice lobby with huge tv. They have two waiting areas – “A” and “B” lobbies. One lobby to check in and another to wait for your dentist. I thought this was a little unnecessary but no big deal. I guess on busier days this works as crowd control. Service: receptionist was very friendly and helpful. I was a new patient and couldn’t find my insurance card, she was able to find my information with my ss number on my insurer’s website.  I was quickly sent to lobby “B” and got my teeth x-Rays underway with cool high tech X-ray machines.

So glad I had my insurance change my Dentist office to the Wilshire Center Dental Group. I went here based on the other reviews and once again, yelp came through. This place is friendly, clean and efficient. I was so happy they could do my x-rays, a cleaning and an orthodontist consultation all in one visit. Dr Kaplan was very kind. I’ll be happy when my 6 month reminder for my next cleaning comes in the mail. Finally, a dental experience I enjoyed!

I have been a patient at the Wilshire Center Dental Group since I was a child. I must say that I am always completely satisfied at their service! They always attend patients in a timely fashion and with a lot of care. Throughout the years, I’ve gotten braces, fillings, bleaching, and wisdom teeth removed. Thanks to all of these, I have a great, white smile on which I am regularly complemented. I have friends who’ve gotten these same treatments at other dentists but whose smile doesn’t last like mine does. That’s because Wilshire goes above and beyond to make sure I am properly caring for my smile and regularly doing check ups. I always receive clear instructions and know that if I have any problems, they will help me through it. The dentist can be a scary place but when it’s as good as the Wilshire Center Dental Group, it’s a welcome experience and I never postpone my visits here. Fyi- I am a student going to college in Iowa but I still insist on coming home regularly so that I can come to this dentist.

Well, I’ve gotta say, for a dental office, this is a pretty awesome place. General Dentistry, Orthodontics, Oral Surgery, Pediatrics, and more; all located in the same building. A very clean, aesthetically pleasing, and friendly atmosphere. As a dental office, very high-tech with x-ray technology that can be seen directly on the computer within seconds, and speedy digital technology to help get the jobs done quick! From what I can see, a very dedicated and talented staff using top of the line equipment (I might add that there’s none of that nasty alginate that makes you gag during impressions, and leaves bits and pieces in your mouth, there’s now a gooey substance that leaves no remnants! (though there’s still always gag potential)) Well, basically, I think, for a dental office, this place is the shnizz. I mean.. They’ve got nintendo 64’s and movies going on in the pediatric waiting room, what else could you ask for!? Keep it up Wilshire Center Dental Group! (this only begins to scratch the surface of the pro’s of going to WCDG, its a shame that not everyone who enjoys their experience there writes a little note!)

After going to three shady dentists in LA, I finally found an honest one! With medicaid, I don’t have many options. I also don’t trust many dentists in LA because All the ones I’ve gone to before Wilshire Center told me I had either several cavities (though I had no pain or tenderness) or I needed a deep cleaning (which is super duper expensive) or that I needed a mouth guard for grinding my teeth (though I have no symptoms of such). They all wanted me to pay a thousand bucks for these procedures. I was skeptical of course. After reading good reviews of these guys, I gave them a shot. The dentist was kind and practical and told me I didn’t need any of those things done. My teeth looked great! So, the moral of the story is, some dentists, especially medicaid ones, are shady and act like used car salesmen. But you can trust Wilshire Dental Center.

I don’t really understand the negative reviews. I had a very positive experience at this dental office. I’m in the works for getting braces same building 3rd floor, however I needed to get checked for cavities and a cleaning before moving forward. I was able to get a same date appointment for my X-ray and came back today for my teeth to be cleaned and decided to take my tooth out no filing required anymore. I will be honest I hate the dentist more than I hate job interviews lol. I came in with a mentally of I’m going to be in so much pain. I signed in and was taken in right away paid for both of my procedures before having them done. Then went for my teeth cleaning and I wish I could remember his name but I’m bad with names. My last teeth cleaning was horrible and scary at a different office, I was so comfortable with him super friendly. It was the most painful teeth cleaning ever! I’m like what that was it no tears. Then I took a small break and the dentist came so We can remove my molar and was numbed and just relaxed until it fully numb my mouth. It was so fast and pain free. I don’t have medical insurance however they offer in house insurance since I’m getting my braces in the same building, I can honestly say it was very inexpensive. The front counter lady was super friendly with me however I’m the type of person that always says hello and thank you. The ladies where you pay one is super friendly and the other she is just there working no connection with patients. I had overall a very positive experience with the staff. Both dentist I saw today were beyond great! Plenty of street parking and yes some construction but I was not able to hear anything in there.

Wilshire Center Dental Group is by far the best dental group I have ever visited.  I am always seen promptly. The staff is incredibly friendly. They do excellent work.  I was always given an honest assessment of my dental issues. Dr. Greg Kaplan is my favorite dentist there.  He does amazing work.  He recently fitted me for a crown and the process was essentially pain free. I can honestly say that I love this dentist and plan to continue to go to Wilshire Center Dental Group for years to come.

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

★★★★★

We love Wilshire Center Dental Group!  We have been going there for over 15 years and even our son, Matthew, has been going there since he was in the 1st grade.  Their children’s facility is excellent and we have been happy parents because they always make sure my son was at ease at every visit (he never complained or was scared about going to the dentist).  Now, that he is a teenager, he is at their “adult” facility on the first floor for his regular checkups and cleaning and they have always still provided us with excellent service.  He is also getting treatment at their orthodontic facility for his braces and we am still happy with the service with the group, especially the receptionist who is always with a beautiful smile and a cheery personality.  Plus there is free parking in the back of the building which is great because parking on Wilshire Boulevard is limited.  Take it from us, after 15 years we are still happy patients with beautiful smiles 😀 and healthy teeth!

Been coming here for about a year and chose it mostly because it was close and they were full service. I’m pleased to report that this place is fantastic. The staff is professional and friendly. I sat in the waiting room for a few minutes and they knew everyone by first name when they walked in. One patient even brought them a New Years card and the girls came around the desk and hugged him. Seriously.. how often do you see that in a dentists office? The dentists are top notch. They take the time to meet you and explain everything in detail. You feel like you are in good hands. I just came back from having oral surgery and was so impressed I decided to write this review because they are THAT good!

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

★★★★★

I have been going to Wilshire Center Dental Group for over 15 years and I am very happy there.  The staff are friendly while the front desk is very accomodating to my busy schedule. Greg Kaplan is probably my favorite dentist there- he is very friendly and clearly good at what he does. Having been born with terrible teeth (multiple root canals, cavities, crowns, etc), I frequently have to see their oral hygenists and oral surgeons.  They are always professional and do excellent work.  Conveniently they can do everything for you in one location and will refer you to the appropriate person if you require any compllicated reconstructions/surgery.  They  also gave me very afffordable cash prices when i didnt have insurance.   While going to the dentist is never pleasant, this place makes the experience far better!
