Hello fellow Yelpers, I would like to share my experience at Woodland Hills Family Dentistry.  I had an 10:00am appointment today, to have 4 cavities filled. I would just like to say the the whole experience was GREAT.  Dr. Youseffi and her assist Mariam were very pleasant and professional.  And did a great job checking with my comfort level while they were working on my cavities.  I didn’t feel a thing. (And I’m afraid of dental work)(FYI) This was my first experience at Dr. Yosseffi’s office, and I give this Dental  Office 2 Thumbs Up  .  All the staff are very polite and courteous. The receptions Dawn is also a Gem at this office. I would 1000% recommend my family and friends to Dr. Youseffi’s office,   Thank You Woodland Hills Family Dentistry, And looks like I found a dentist, that I would trust and like to go to.

This place is awesome! Couldn’t be more happy going here. Dawn the office manager is such a great lady and super professional! Dr. Yousefi really knows what she is doing and professional at it as well. Switched to this dentist and I am happy so far with the results. Thank you for everything you ladies do

I’ve been coming to Woodland Hills Family Dentistry for over 10 Years. I love the staff, the dentists, the hygienists and pretty much everyone that works there. They are very professional and thorough in their explanations and treatments. I recommend them highly.

Both my husband and I have now been to Woodland Hills Family Dentistry – and had a great experience. Friendly staff, clean, professional, knowledgeable and affordable. I’ve lived in LA for years, and I’ve never been satisfied with a dentist here (frankly continued to fly home to Oklahoma to use my family dentist for YEARS) and finally feel like I have found a place that feels like a hometown doctor’s office… We will continue to use their services.

Kimberly C. from Canyon Country, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Woodland Hills Family Dentistry for 15 years. The office ladies are so welcoming and sweet. The doctors are knowledgable and comforting and have always made me feel at ease. I have always had positive experiences and have looked forward to my yearly check-ups. I highly recommend Woodland Hills Family Dentistry if you are looking for a place that performs great dental work and makes you feel apart of the family.

Avni V. from Orange County, CA (Source: Yelp)


Not going to lie – I hate going to the dentists but everyone over here is super nice that you actually look forward to your regular 6 month cleaning appointments. Such a positive experience. It can be little confusing to find if you type in “Woodland Hills Family Dentistry” directly on the google maps but if you physically type in the address then it takes you right to the location. It is location on the second floor of the complex. There is ample amount of parking available – have a private parking lot in the back of the building. Everyone at this office are always smiling, professional and nice. Dawn is very helpful in regards to explaining the finances and she is not pushy at all in regards to treatment acceptance. Dr Yousefi is extremely thorough at explaining any of the dental questions. I would highly recommend everyone to go to this office.

Dr. Yousefi is an excellent dentist and she is also a very gentle dentist. Dawn is the backbone of the efficient way the office runs and a true asset. Janis is the most thorough hygienist and tells great stories throughout the cleaning process. The entire team are amazing. Kudos to each of them.

Joe B. from Lakewood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Was referred by a co-worker to this office and was not disappointed. The office is very professional and I was impressed with the friendly atmosphere. The examination and work was done by Dr. Yousefi. She provided me with the best options and made me feel at ease by explaining the procedure. I’m not a big fan of going to the dentist, however, Dr. Yousefi made me feel very comfortable and made the procedure as painless and quick as possible. In addition, the office manager was able to help me out with insurance. I truly would recommend this office to all my friends!!

Brittany Bea S. from Murrieta, CA (Source: Yelp)


Best experience I have ever had at the dentist!! Dr Yousefi was so patient and professional. Dr Shant did my extractions and I didn’t feel a thing. I was so nervous but Dawn comforted me and made sure I was ok the whole procedure. They listened to my concerns and did an amazing job. I will be recommending them to EVERYONE!

Tony S. from Canoga Park, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office for 20-25 years now. . Janice has always been my hygienist and she does an amazing job!! She is very detailed oriented. Dawn has always been fantastic in the front helping me with my account and reminding me when it’s time for me to come in. This is very helpful with my schedule. The personal attention she gives is why I’ve been here so long. Dr. Yousefi is newer to the team but she is a great addition. She has helped me with a new crown and even fixed an old one that had problems.

Ysi B. from Malibu, CA (Source: Yelp)


This place is amazing!!! The staff is so kind and caring. I broke my tooth and was in severe pain and they were quick to accommodate me and take care of me. Also they a great payment plan. I’m so happy I found them 🙂 highly recommended coming

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


New patient and WOW! What a difference it makes to be in the hands of true, caring professionals. After intro to Dawn, having Brenda take my X-Rays and getting to know her better during the X-Ray process – I felt very comfortable in the hands of my new Dental professionals. Dr. Yousefi is amazing! She discovered cracks in one of my teeth, I feel strongly that had my former dentist not been so involved “personally” with patients and staff, that perhaps had he actually seen me on my past 3 visits he’d have detected it himself. I am grateful for my parents referral and know I’m in great hands now. I look forward to my next visit.

Nina A. from Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I woke up several times throughout the night with excruciating pain, so I started looking for dentists near by praying one would be open today. I called the main number and on voicemail it said to call another number for emergencies. I texted instead and almost immediately I received response from Dawn who was so nice and helpful. She told me to come in this morning, which I did. When I got there, she was so nice and friendly. I’ve had some bad experiences recently at other dental offices so I really appreciated how kind she was. After doing my extra for the infected tooth, it was determined that I needed to get on antibiotics right away and schedule to see an oral surgeon ASAP! I asked Dawn for schedule of costs, which she provided. It was so detailed and affordable since other practices were quoting me double what she quoted me. Customer service is big for me and I appreciate good customer service because it’s so rare these days. I’m definitely making this practice my dental home. Dawn thank you again so much for accommodating me on such short notice and being so kind. just left from having an emergency visit due to my tooth pain. My experience with

I tried for the last two weeks to get an appointment. The dental office was booked solid and would not be available until the first of the year. The office, thanks to the staff, was able to get me in on the last day prior to closing for the year. I appreciate their efforts to take me and not take the “wait until after the first of the year” approach. Many thanks!

Ana G. from Canoga Park, CA (Source: Yelp)


I found this dental office through my employer at a staff event and I’m so happy to have been recommended. I have been to the office 3 times already and I look forward to going in every time. The office itself is nice and clean. The office staff is very welcoming, kind and attentive. I have had my work done by the dental hygienist and she’s also very helpful and informative. She’s provided me with information on how to keep my ongoing treatment a success. I’ve had work done also by Dr. Yousefi and she was amazing. She informed me every step of the way of what she was doing and also kept in mind to ask if I was still comfortable while getting my procedure done. Overall great office and great staff. Can’t wait for my next visit. Keep doing the great work your doing.

Irene H. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have no dental insurance and came across groupon deal for a regular check up with x-ray and cleaning. Oh my, this place was exactly how i want my dentist office to be like! The office is super clean with seems to be up to date equipments. Friendly, very professional and knowledgeable staffs. The front desk lady “Dawn” was wonderful. She was very informative and wasn’t annoyed at all when i asked lot of questions. And even other staffs who did my cleaning and x-ray were keep asking me if i was comfortable and made sure i was ok. I would definitely go back!!!

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


I’ve been coming to see Dr. Yousefi for years. She is always kind and professional. Last week I had a crown detach and they were able to get me in the very same day to quickly cement it back in. I was in and out in 20 mins. I also had my first root canal the same week (banner week!). I was anxious, but Dr. Shant who performed the procedure, took the time to explain everything he was doing and the entire thing went smoothly without a tinge of pain. The staff is so nice and knowledgeable and on top of things. I highly recommend this office!

Sue B. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have a history of some really negative dental experiences that cost me not just in dental function and appearance, but repeat root canals and an extensive surgery.  I was referred to Drs. Yousefi (and Shant) by two now former bosses.  I can’t say enough about the talent and caring of Dr. Yousefi, who thankfully also has a gentle manner with patients like me who are skittish with any dental procedure.  I literally cried when I saw the beautiful replacement of large front fillings and the smoothing out and polishing of some very poorly done work by a previous dentist that made me self-conscious.  I haven’t smiled in public in several years because of how my teeth looked.  I no longer have that problem thanks to Dr. Yousefi.  All the office staff is professional, polite, good humored and very friendly too.  It’s no wonder to me why this office has such a sterling reputation.

My name is Jay from  jnetics  I’m leaving a review for doctor Yousefi at the woodland hills  family dentistry I wanna say a special thanks to dawn doctor Armin and also doctor yousefi for taking care of my smile for every television appearance the doctor has done amazing for all theses years  thank you to the staff for keeping me camera ready and  thank you doctor yousif for all you do I am so greatful  that u are there doctor Yousefi

Linda K. from Topanga Canyon, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been coming to this office for close to 15 years now and wouldn’t go anywhere else.  As a self-professed dentaphobe, who went 10 years without treatment, I finally reached a point where I couldn’t put it off any longer.  I had a true dental emergency.  Dawn and Janice were wonderful and made sure I was properly medicated for procedures, which other dentists refused to do, hence the 10 year lapse.  They rebuilt my entire mouth and did it beautifully. When Dr. Shant announced his retirement, I cried.  However, Dr. Yousefi has become a very gentle, trustworthy and caring member of my care team.  I wouldn’t trade this practice for a million bucks!

I had such a positive experience here! The office is clean and has beautiful fresh flowers. Dr. Yousefi cleaned my teeth very quickly, and I had a ton of stains. Dawn and Ker also helped me out and are the kindest people. Their passion and integrity in their careers is obvious. By far the best dental experience I’ve had.

Simren Chawla (Source: Google)


the friendliest staff and dentists. They really make you feel comfortable and at ease. I am not the easiest dental patient (lol) but Dr Yousefi is very patient with me. Dawn and the rest of the office staff are absolutely amazing. I highly recommend coming here.

Sandra R. from Palm Springs, CA (Source: Yelp)


The office is very clean, employess are curtious, gentle and compassionate. From the moment you walk in your greeted by Dawn with a smiling face. She knows her stuff and is very thorough. The entire atmosphere of the office and staff is clean and pleasant. Dr. Yousefi made me feel comfortable and eased my fear with her gently words and care.

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


Both Dr. Yousefi are amazing dentist. The whole office takes great care of the patients starting with the front office Dawn and Julie. It’s like going to your friends. They recommend what is best for the patient and are highly ethical. My hygienist Natalie is very professional as well. She is gentle and knowledgeable- I am cash patient and I like their pricing as well. No pressure at all. They give you many options. They care. Both doctors are very good with great skills. I trust them. It’s the best place to get dental treatment.

Steve V. from Signal Hill, CA (Source: Yelp)


The story I have to tell is the story of a guy who does not really like to go to dentist. I am sure I am not the only one. I am truly afraid. I needed an extraction and bone graft (and need an implant later). In short, I was in and out very easily and my experience was very positive so far, even without an IV sedation. Dr. Yousefi and Dr. Shant made me be very relaxed and before I knew it, it was over. Looking forward to go back and get my implant. Also thanks to Dawn, the office manager, for her help with flexible scheduling and follow ups. Cleaning is also scheduled. Very recommendable office.

Julie B. from Woodland Hills, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


Love this office. They came to my rescue in the middle of a pandemic and are all so friendly and understanding. Everything is explained ahead of time and I’m really happy I found them.  I was a big chicken before I went in and they made it all very easy, understandable and were very reassuring. Thanks so much everyone. See you again soon!

Dr. Yousefi and her staff are extremely friendly , knowledable and accommodating when it come to booking an appointment. I needed an urgent appointment when my tooth broke and I was taken care of same day. It’s always not easy to go to a new dentist. A huge thanks to Dawn and Misty.

Woodland Hills Family Dentistry is an amazing group, from I know two Dentists, Dr. Yousefi and Dr. Shant. They have created an office where the staff is willing to listen to any concerns; specially manager Dawn who is very knowledgeable and caring towards to patients. I’m sure she is an asset to the office. If I pressed wrongfully other key please disregard.

Pamela B. from Hidden Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)

I have Recommended this office to many people, everyone is always happy!! Dawn, The office manager has been here all these years : ) they do a great job!!!

Edwin S. from Torrance, CA (Source: Yelp)


I don’t even know where to start, this place is amazing. I had the biggest fear of the dentist until today. Dr Yousefi was awesome she took her Time and was very patient. Her assistants were great as well. I can say I’m truly over my fear and would recommend everyone here. Thanks Woodland Hills Family Dentistry

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


 (the receptionist) are honestly some of the best and easy going people that also happen to be great at their job! Twice I’ve had to come in for teeth that have chipped due to normal life circumstances and they’ve always been quick to see me, give me a very good price estimate and have them bonded to look 100%! I even requested for her to make the teeth a little longer as I felt it was short compared to my original teeth and she made them look amazing. PS. I smoke weed and have had to ask them about when it is safe to smoke after the procedure and they have always been kind and easy going about it PPS. for a normal bonding on a chipped tooth you can smoke right away lol much love and thanks again yall

Best experience I ever had. My husband told me he slept during his Root Canal, and I didn’t believe him. Today I had a Root Canal and I was very nervous. Surprisingly I had no pain at all. And I am still fine. Thanks Dr. Yousefi and Dr.Shant for such a great service.

Hannah V. from Woodland Hills, CA (Source: Yelp)


Very sweet, professional, and patient associates! It was a pleasure going here for a full cleaning and Xrays! Used an online Groupon and got a great price as a first time customer! They were able to notice that my wisdom teeth needed to be extracted and a small cavity. They gave me a complete payment breakdown and explained everything very thoroughly for me! I asked a ton of questions and they very patiently answered them all! Unfortunately, I had to use my company provided dentist to do the procedure as we have an HMO dental plan and the cost for tooth extraction is high. But I genuinely wished my insurance would cover the procedure with Woodland Hills Family as they really were a great experience!

Schedule an appointment for you and your family today! Discovering my passion for dentistry and pursuing a career serving as a dentist was truly a calling I experienced when growing up and spending time in my mother’s dental practice. Her strength being successful as a dentist and mother always inspired me. From childhood I loved spending time in my parents’ office and slowly found my passion in becoming a dentist. I started practicing dentistry in 2004 right after graduation. I added to my experience by receiving my Advances Standing Program of International Dentists, ASPID/DDS from USC in 2012, where I was at the top of the dean’s list. I worked with companies like Western Dental Services and Pacific Dental Services for three years and added to my knowledge about advanced technology like the CAD/CAM same-day crown. As a general and cosmetic dentist, I provide care to all ages. My favorite part about practicing dentistry is having the opportunity to provide a caring and comfortable experience for all of my patients. I value the relationships I build with my patients over time and I consider it a privilege to be their dentist. I try my best to listen to their concerns, be thorough in their exam, and together come up with a plan that best works for them. I treat my patients the way I would want to be treated. “I believe smiling to be contagious. When my patients leave my operatory with a beautiful, healthy smile that reflects their pleasant, painless, and informative visit, I know I’ve contributed to making the world a happier place.” I remain actively committed to enhancing my clinical and diagnostic skills through continuing education courses, as well as through my membership with the American Dental Association, California Dental Association, and the San Fernando Valley Dental Community. I know that seeing a new doctor can cause a lot of anxiety and apprehension. Let me assure you that I’m here to make your visit as pleasant and informative as possible and to give you the most current, accurate, and helpful recommendations that suits your conditions. I look forward to providing you with compassionate and excellent care. To me, living well means having a healthy body and healthy mind. When I’m not working, I like to hike, take a walk down the beach, bike, and hang out with family and friends. I also enjoy watching movies with my husband and traveling.
