Young Amano, DDS is a Wonderful and Caring Dentist.  Dr. Amano and his Staff make you feel Welcome, Comfortable and have your Best interests in mind, despite What Tigran and Tania have to say.  You will definitely be treated like Family!  Dr. Amano is a 5-STAR Dentist. My previous dental office charged me $2000+ for one unnecessary root canal and replaced crowns that weren’t needed.  I too have been traumatized re dental visits.  However, Dr. Amano has gained my Trust emotionally allowing me to RELAX without drugs under his Gentle Care.  Knowing that he is a well-established professional dentist (and then some!) NOT looking to rip you off financially, also guarantees my financial Trust.  Dr. Amano LOVES being a Dentist and Caring for his Patients.  Thank God for Dr. Young Amano.

The whole staff is professional and friendly. Dr. Amano is equipped with the most current tools of the trade and I feel totally safe in all his decisions about my teeth.  As for being open for 3 days of the week, it’s totally workable as they have one day that is a late appointment day.  And a top dental hygienist staff!  Erica has to be one of the most gentlest to work on my teeth and other hygienist equally as good.  Also, Dr. Amano, dental assistants and receptionist – all are awesome!  I am not scared to go to the dentist!

Joe T. from Santa Monica, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been a patient of Dr Amano’s for many years he is gentle and very thorough. I really like that he takes his time doing my dental treatments he is never rushed like other offices I have been to. I really like that when I walk in they know who I am I feel like family not like a number. Dr Amanos  staff is friendly and professional. Dr Amanos fees are fair he can certainly charge more considering he’s been a dentist for over 30 years ..I’ve recommended him to my friends and family. If you need it Dentist you should definitely try him.

Yesenia D. from Shafter, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am a new patient at Dr. Amanos office he was highly recommended by my best friend and she has been a patient of his for over 20 years! I was very nervous but he put me at ease he explained everything to me and made me feel right at home. My dental treatment was painless and his prices are fair. I am very pleased with Dr Amano he  is one of the best dentist I have ever had. Everyone in his office is warm and welcoming. I have found my new dental family. If you are looking for a dentist  you should give Dr Amano a try he is magnificent the best I ever found his staff an extremely helpful thanks Dr. Amano and Staff.

During my routine exam, Dr. Amano found that my crown needed to be replaced. When I returned for this work I was a little apprehensive but the Dr. has so refined his topical anaesthesia that the injection to numb my took could not be felt. AMAZING!!!. Even more amazing was that he was able to numb just the tooth not my gum, not my cheek, not my tongue. He numbed only where he had to work. If you are at all not looking forward to the discomfort of dental work this is the place to go.

I’d never been comfortable in a dentist’s office in my life until I saw Dr. Amano. I went in with a mouth full of needed replacement crowns and a root canal or two (no mention of my previous dentist is necessary), and within six months my mouth was in terrific shape and my fear was completely gone. The folks who work in the office are like family (special mention to Ro), Dr. Amano never makes you feel rushed or in the way, I simply can’t say enough good things. Know that while his prices are more than fair, but he’s worth his weight in gold where your teeth are concerned.

Dave G. from Winnetka, CA (Source: Yelp)


I’ve been going to Dr. Amano for more than 10 years now. He and his staff are professional and friendly, and I’ve had various procedures done (crowns, cavities filled, deep cleanings, etc.) all to my complete satisfaction. I refer people to Dr. Amano often – and have sent my wife, friends and other members of my family to see him. I noticed that one of the previous reviewers states “Dr. Amano has done great work on my husband’s and my teeth” and then gives one star? Go figure… Great dentist – I highly recommend!!

Susie F. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I am actually not scared to go to the dentist anymore! Over the last few years I have had approx. 6 visits to Dr. Amano’s Dental office for various tooth ailments, my fear level of going to the dentist has decreased with each visit…and I am happy to say that I now look forward to taking better care of my teeth and of visiting Dr. Amano and his staff! I am even booking cleanings before I am due for them! Thank you Dr. Young Amano and staff!

I have been seeing Dr. Amano since 2006. I came to him after visiting quite a few dentists here in the Los Angeles area. I was referred to him, through a friend and I have been super happy here at the office. The ENTIRE staff is wonderful, really friendly, and helpful. The problem I had with other offices was that I felt like they were trying to sell me SO many things, I left feeling unsettled. With Dr. Amano, he took his time to look at my x-rays, talk to me about my treatment plan…and we proceeded from there. I never felt any pressure and I felt like I was in total control of my dental health. Since seeing him, my three children also see him..2 of them needed fillings for a cavity, and both were put at ease by himself and his assistant (and Lori, the front office manager)…explaining the process to them. So without a hitch, they were both comfortable, didn’t even feel any injections..and left with their cavities taken care of. A big plus, is that the office offers new patients free whitening! I am thankful for finding him, and his office…I would recommend him to ANYONE that needed a dentist.

Lisa O. from Santa Clarita, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been to plenty of dentists and Dr. Amano and his staff are among the most pleasant and honest I have ever come across.  The office staff bent over backwards to get my daughter appointment times that worked with our schedule and were so compassionate with my daughter.  My daughter is 15 and had a biking accident and had to have a front  veneer put in – drama for anyone, but major drama for a 15 year old girl!  Dr. Amano is truly a dentist you can trust; he is honest and is very talented in his field – and a nice man too!  This was a referral for us and I am so glad he did the work on my daughter – my insurance did not cover this so we could of went anywhere.  I would not hesitate to refer Dr. Amano and is staff to anyone.

I am fourteen years old and Dr. Amano has been my dentist for all of my life. He always made going to the dentist not seem scary and actually a bit exciting– after all, what’s better than the feeling of sparkly clean teeth? Through the pulling of stubborn little baby teeth that just didn’t want to fall out, to the fillings of a few cavities, Dr. Amano painlessly and efficiently did his work. I couldn’t possibly go to a better dentist. ~Mykala Listorti

I’ve been going to Dr. Amano for several years now and I have only wonderful things to say about him and his staff. Dr. Amano is great at what he does and takes the time to answer any patient concerns and accommodates to the patient’s needs! His staff is lovely and extremely helpful!  I have never encountered any problems in getting an appt. and his office runs on schedule.  I am always seen at the exact time of my appt. (unlike other dental offices). The facility is always clean and presentable. I highly recommend Dr. Amano and his staff!

Cynthia F. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I was referred to Dr. Amano by a relative and he did not disappoint! I have always been terrified of the dentist but he made me feel very comfortable and he is amazing at giving shots. I did not feel a thing. The entire staff is very warm and kind and make you feel very welcome and at ease. I now take my daughter and have sent my mom there. I couldnt be happier with the service and would highly recommend him.

Stacy L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


My friend Scott referred my mother to Dr Amano a few years ago.  She was in her 80’s then.  He is great!  He has taken care of her teeth with regular check-ups and repairs.  He encourages her, provides treatment plans that are tailored to her needs and her budget (as one of the greatest generation, she has no insurance), and always welcomes her to his office.  His staff is friendly and efficient and they take a genuine interest in their patients’ well-being.  Dr Amano is a true professional and great community member.

I was a patient of a very bad dentist at Garfield avenue, Alhambra. When I met my bf, Jason, a few years ago, he told me about Dr. Young Amano’s office & the excellent service he had been receiving. He introduced me to Dr. Young Amano & his staff’s; Lori & her daughter (Brad – not sure how to spell her name.. LOL), and Valerie also Rosie. They were all very nice, helpful, caring, gentle on me. They offered all the care they think I need, but not forcing it on me. This dental office is very clean, comfy & not giving me the eerie feeling like other places. Anyway, I have been a loyal patient of them for over 3 yrs now. I never will go to other dental office anymore. When I was unemployed over a yr ago, they (especially Valerie; my tooth fairy/dental hygienist) even tried to help me to get a new job. They made me feel like I’m a family member. For that, they just earned very high points from me, even though it was irrelevant, but it was very important and meant a lot to me. My suggestion is; go check this place out, you will NOT be dissapointed! Thank you Dr. Amano & all the awesome ladies there!

Nancy H. from North Hollywood, Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


AMAZING!!! I felt comfortable with Dr. Amano the moment he introduced himself to me. He takes time to discuss in detail all dental work I need and he is happy to answer all my questions. He never makes me feel he is put out or in a rush.  Dr. Amano does excellent work, he is a perfectionist, and very gentle.  Dr. Amano and his assistant go out of their way to make sure I’m comfortable from start to finish when having dental work done.  Everyone is the office is super friendly. I highly recommend Dr. Amano

Dr. Amano has been my dentist for decades. I have sent him countless number of people who work in the entertainment industry to his office. He is always there for me, even when I broke my tooth over a long holiday weekend. The office called me immediately after I left a message about my situation. Another nice observation is that Dr. Amano has all the latest equipment. He loves his gadgets, job, and his staff is always nice and happy. It would be wise to be apart of this grou.

I have regained my confidence in dentist. I had a traumatic experience as a child which left me terrified of dentist( A dentist pulled a couple of teeth without me being completely numb) until I met Dr Amano, he explained everything to me he never rushed me into treatment, he educated me and gave me different options. I had neglected my teeth for so long .. I had a tooth ache and a good friend of mine told me about Dr. Amano and I’m so glad I went to see him. He has done 2 root canals and I didn’t’ feel any pain. He did other treatment and I am very pleased with my results. I can smile with confidence something I haven’t done in years. I want to save my teeth. My mother and grandmother both had dentures, I am determined to have all my teeth well into my life.
I never thought I would be talking about a positive dental experience and here I am. I didn’t have insurance and they provided me with care credit 24 months at 0%. This office has gone above and beyond to help me with my fears and to make it affordable for me Dr Amono said “you can’t eat an elephant in one seating but you can a bite at a time” and believe me I have had so much treatment because of my neglect. Dr Amano saved my teeth he was very conservative and placed fillings where I was recommended crowns. I will be eternally grateful to him!! I feel welcomed at Dr Amanos office all the girls are friendly and very knowledgeable (my previous office never even bothered to greet or look up at me just the general check in list). Dr Amanos fees are less than previous dentist I have been to. I just couldn’t find the right fit where I felt comfortable that however has changed now with my dental family at Dr. Amanos office. I was talking to another patient at my last dental visit he has been with Dr Amano for over 25 years!!! I hope Im lucky enough to say the same.

Bruce O. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amano has been our family dentist for 36 years and we continue to be pleased with his service and his staff. His gentle touch is appreciated and every procedure is painless. We cannot recommend him highly enough and we suggest you give his office a try. We think you’ll agree that Dr. Amano is a great choice for your dental needs.

Ali C. from Las Vegas, NV (Source: Yelp)


I have been with Dr. Amano and his wonderful staff for going on ten years now and for a very good reason!  They care!  They are a wonderful group of people and Dr. Amano, when he speaks to both his patients and hygienists, is concerned with educating people with the process.  He’s truly passionate about dentistry and it shows in the attention he gives his patients.  The instruments and techniques are all up to date and you can tell he keeps himself informed with the latest developments. It’s competitive out there for dental services.  There are over 800 dentists in the Valley but because of the kind of dentist he is and the wonderful staff he employs, I wouldn’t even dream of going to any of the other 799.

Richard W. from Glendale, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been going to Dr. Amano for over ten years.  He is the best dentist I have ever had.  His office is like family to me, and I think Valerie, my hygienist, is terriffic.  I actually look forward to visiting his office to have my teeth cleaned or to deal with other dental problems as they arrive.  Dr. Amano is personable, responsive, caring and very very good at what he does.  I highly recommend Dr. Amano and his office for any dental needs.

I like everything about Dr Amano’s office and staff. I recommend Dr. Amano to everyone who is looking for a good dentist. I even recommend him to people I feel need to go see a dentist because it is obvious they need work. Dr. Amano keeps up with all the new procedures as they occur. Everyone in the office is super nice and the best part is Dr. Amano is a dentist I completely trust and have total faith in. He only does what has to be, or should be, done. His skill and workmanship is perfect. I actually like going to the dentist and seeing everyone.

Alain B. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)

The staff at Dr. Amanos office are always so nice and really genuine. I love the family feel and the fact they can have fun with patients! Going to the dentist is never a chore at Dr. Amanos office and I feel really welcomed and taken care of. I have sensitive teeth and have never been in pain and feel like they accomodate that I’m a wuss and are really attentive to how I’m doing while in the chair. A doctors credentials don’t lie; and Dr. Amano is superior to any dentist I’ve been too, I like that he tells me what hes doing and really educates the patient…. Bonnie P doesn’t know what shes talking about.. loosen up girl

Deborah C. from Big Bear Lake, CA (Source: Yelp)


As an adult I began grinding my teeth, they started shifting and becoming crooked.  I wanted to do whatever I could to keep my own teeth.  I was highly recommended to go to Dr. Young Amano to get Invisaligns as oppose to wearing wire braces.  I’m so delighted with the results.  I come down from Big Bear Lake and everyone is very accommodating and so helpful with all my questions and appointments.  My hygienist is the best.  Just mention the word Dentist and it gives me quivers, but, everyone there is so caring, and uplifting, I actually feel confident and enjoy my time coming to this dentist.  A big 10 star.

Roger M. from Mendocino, CA (Source: Yelp)


I was so pleased to have found Dr. Amano back in the 90’s.  I moved to Mendocino, CA over 7 years ago and did try a local dentist.  After that experience I have been driving 10 hours each way to see Dr. Amano who I TRUST!  Dr. Amano takes the time to explain the procedures and he answers all my questions until I am clear about what is going on.  He is gentle, keeps current and most of all he is meticulous in his work.  Dr. Amano’s hygienists do a thorough cleaning.  I feel like my mouth has been “detailed”.  Lori at the front desk makes me feel like we are best friends while still maintaining professionalism. I know some may not understand my loyalty and the expense and time involved in my trips to Burbank.  You only get one set of permanent teeth and the investment is worth it to me. Dr. Amano, please don’t retire any time soon!

I’ve been going to Dr. Amano for over 20 years.They care about your teeth. They are always finding and using the latest techniques and materials to make sure your teeth are the healthiest they can possibly be. I rely on him and his team to always provide the best service for both my son and I.

Lauren D. (Source: Google)


I have been going to Dr. Amano since 2006 and ALWAYS have a positive experience. The staff there is so accommodating and a pleasure to visit. Especially when it comes to caring for my four year old when she is done with her checkup and I am still getting my teeth cleaned. Insurance has changed much over the years, but our family will not change dentists. I also appreciate Dr. Amano’s knowledge of chemistry in general (he has a phd in this area) and his willingness to offer input with all of my questions. Each dental staff member has unique strengths they bring so I am never disappointed. Thank you!!.

Gwinn I. from Los Angeles, CA (Source: Yelp)


He is the best ever.  I have been seeing Dr. Amano for over 20 + years.  The staff is amazing and Dr. Amano always has new equipment that he loves to use.  I have referred many people to him as he give the best shots, if you need to be numbed for a procedure.  If you have an emergency, they have always been there for me to make sure I am alright.

Ray H. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


I have been seeing Dr. Amano for 3 years and he is the best dentist I have seen, and I am an old guy 🙂 his techs do a great job, cleaning my teeth with very little pain. Dr. Amano has taken care of some old fillings and the procedures seemed through and vertically pain free. I have not had any problems with the new fillings. But the main thing about Dr. Amano is his consults. He takes the time to give you all your options and will go over each in detail. I highly recommend him.

Denise L. from Burbank, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amano is amazing.  Recently I was going on a trip out of the country.  It was Saturday night at 8:00 and I was scheduled to leave on Sunday at 11:30.  As I was packing, I was having a snack and I was horrified to find that one of my molars had broken.  It was a severe break and I knew that this tooth could ruin the vacation that I had been planning for two years.  I began to panic at that point.  I had no choice but to call my dental office emergency number. At 8:30 on a Saturday night, I was very surprised to be connected directly to Dr. Amano.  His first response was, “Are you in pain?”  Dr. Amano set up an appointment for me on Sunday morning, calling in his wonderful assistant to help.  In 45 minutes he was able to repair my tooth enough to allow me to go on my trip and he set up a follow-up appointment for when I returned.  I thanked him with tears in my eyes; I could not believe that he was willing and able to fix my tooth on a Sunday morning.  His response, “Well of course I would take care of you, you are my patient.”  
I am happy to say, I have been a patient of Dr. Amano for about 12 years.  I have always had major dental issues and had seen various dentists before coming to Dr. Amano.  The care that I have received in this office far exceeds any that I had ever experienced elsewhere.  He puts his patients needs first, and is there when you have an emergency.  He is a family dentist and has taken care of my children since they were very young, taking special care to ease the pain during a filling or extracting a baby-tooth that would not fall out.  I highly recommend Dr. Amano to all of my friends and family. HE CARES!

Cat H. from North Hollywood, CA (Source: Yelp)


Dr. Amano is a very kind and thorough dentist. His front office staff are lovely and professional. Whenever I’ve had questions regarding insurance coverage, the sweet gal is always helpful and explains how my dental coverage works and the benefits as well. I’ve always received excellent treatment here and would not consider any other place.

I came to Dr. Amano after a dentist from Canyon Country was trying to replace all of my teeth with crowns. I went to Dr. Amano and he said my teeth were healthy and I didn’t need crowns. One time, I broke my tooth in the back from biting a See’s candy lollipop. He said it was cosmetic and it didn’t require any unnecessary work.Amazing! It is so difficult to find an honest dentist, like Dr. Amano! His staff is friendly, knowledgeable and very accommodating. Customer service is awesome. I had always been afraid to get my teeth cleaned, because other places have cut me, made my gums bleed and my teeth hurt after the deep cleaning… Sandy is thee best Dental Hygentist! No pain, clean teeth and I always look forward to coming back for the next visit, as do my children.

As always, coming to your office, Doc A., is the BEST !!!  Edilea (sorry I know I’m misspelling your name) at the front desk  is wonderful.  Talented Erica (hope that’s the correct spelling) is a skilled and gentle hygienist.  Dr. Amano is a trusted professional and scientist who always provides welcome advice.  I missed seeing Rocio on this visit and send her my best regards.  Thank you all for being there for me.  I will always miss  Lori — but we stay in touch!!


Dr. Amano started his dental practice in Burbank, and is still in the same location serving many patients who joined the practice in 1978! You will benefit from the high standards we have set for delivering the utmost quality of dental treatment available. We are proud to be on the cutting edge of dental technology and are committed to participating in the education that keeps us there. Our commitment to quality is equaled only by our commitment to providing exceptional customer service. We believe that each patient is an individual, with unique dental needs, and strive to exceed expectations. We provide dentistry that changes people’s lives, in doing so we change our own. We always look forward to seeing new patients become part of our dental family. I am an avid expert skier. I often ski 50 or more days in a single season. To be physically able to stay strong on the snow I work out regularly, pumping iron, doing Zumba classes, spinning, and playing tennis. Although we have most of the newest advanced dental hardware and use the latest and finest dental materials (and I know about dental materials because I have a Ph. D. in chemistry), I have another take on technology. I think the dentist himself is the very best high tech item in any dental practice. The dentist’s knowledge, skill and the application of appropriate treatment to make best use of the amazing hardware now available is the ultimate hi tech. Additionally, without an unflinching commitment to integrity nothing else matters. Finally all of us here at my practice believe in the Comfort Zone philosophy, which means we will do our best to make you comfortable, to ease any pain you have and to not inflict any pain while you are under our care.
