Verified Patient Reviews
My 6 yo daughter had to have her baby tooth pulled out since the new tooth was already out... Dr. Janet Refoa was highly patient with her as she did her work and very professional. She’s also so sweet and caring especially with kids.
The dentist didn't even look at me during my first visit! The hygienist hit me with a needle on my arm and didn't stop to clean up the blood or sterilize the wound! The hygienist didn't scale my gums, even though I told him to pay close attention to a particular area--he only used the water jet when my gums require more.
My 5 y/o daughter had a cavity and Dr. Refoa was so patient and kind with her that she let the doctor do her job without any complain and she was even excited to go back again!
Always have a great experience at Janet's dental office. Such warm, caring and considerate staff.
disappointing - a different dental lab made my dentures - i was referred to a dental surgeon for the pain that i said had from the very beginning and in the end i got my dentures but the pain is still there - DENTI-CAL does not cover bone surgery so all in all the only thing i got from all of this was some new over-due dentures - at least they fit -
I'm glad I told the assistant that that was not my chart on the screen so the x-ray would not be mixed up with someone else's chart.
Dr. Refoa is awesome. I've been going to her for many years now and she's one of the best dentists period. I highly recommend you see her for regular checkups/cleanings, dental work, and cosmetic if needed. Highly recommend.
the dentist who came to take my new denture molds was quite old but seemed to know what he was doing - so i guess its a case of old people have more experience - anyway, being old myself i am glad someone took my problem seriously now i am waiting to see the results that i hope will hold up to my opinion of the older the better experience - therefore more professional work expected not that i have anything against younger dentists - they need to get as much experience as possible from theri seniors
Dr. Refoa and her staff are professional with an amazing 'bed side manner'! I can say as a child and the product of the dentistry of the 1950's, Dr. Refoa has allayed those deep seated fears, and has actually helped me feel comfortable in the 'chair'. Her skill is impressive, I am confident in her for my dental health!
Great dentists at her practice. Very nice staff as well. They go above and beyond.
I was greatly impressed by the service given
Great office and the whole staff including Janet was very friendly. Highly recommend
I greatly appreciate Dr Refoa and her wonderful staff for taking such excellent care of me as a new patient.
Very nice staff and they did a great job cleaning my teeth.
She's the best! Best experience with a dentist i've ever had.
Dr. Refoa truly care about your Ortho care. She's very caring and friendly. Her staff is 100% amazing! So happy I decided to go to her for my routine check up and will continue to see her from now on!
The B E S T time going to a dentist I have ever had.( I'm 81 yrs old.) All skill, all charm---Janet has that gentle touch. She is like being with your best Friend--and she soon WILL be. --Richard T. (smiling again)
I like the two Dental Assistants I interacted with today. They did a thorough job, were kind, courteous and gentle. I appreciate explanations of what they're doing and why. Dr. Refoa is very friendly and committed to the oral health of her patients. I always feel heard and never up-sold. I'm glad I found this dental office.
Dr Refoa was extremely compassionate and caring. I had an issue with a Jason, though. He was unable to x-ray the root of my tooth, after trying for 30 mins.
She is compassionate, skilled and warm. I highly recommend this Dentist. Thank you for helping me. Lisa
Dr Refoa has taken my mouth that i use to keep closed due to the way my teeth look to a mouth I am PROUD to smile and show off. She is the best around and the price is secondary to her wanting you to have the best you can get.
This time, the inlay was not properly made, so after trying to insert it they had to take another impression and order another one.
Dr. Rafoa is prompt, personable, and professional. She is great with patients and has a team of subject matter experts that cater to patient needs. I was impressed!
Everyone is very friendly and efficient.
The adjustment of the chair was done poorly, no explanation as I am adjusting you for the position to do ..... also when dentist began procedure process was not explained on each upcoming step. The abrupt staff communication is confusing and poor. For such a upscale suite and capability a bit more process communication would go a long way. Capability a 10 meeting expectations a 7.
I didn't like that I filled out the online medical history and when I got to the office I had to fill out more history. Other than that I liked the service and facility
I love this office!!! My 9 yr old daughter is petrified of dental offices. I promised her that I would find the kindest best Dentist possible. After much research I found Dr. Refoa!!! While in the waiting room MoishDe (sorry if misspelled) welcomed us and said the Dr. Refoa will be with us soon. Shortly after Bianca, took X-Rays of my child and was very kind and reassuring. Then, Dr. Refoa examined her and explained to my daughter the procedure she needs, all while caressing her hand. It was a dream come true. We did not feel rushed at all, and the office felt peaceful. They even gave her a mini-canvas to paint as a gift. I am really happy to have found this dental office. Everyone was great, including the kind lady who took my paper information. My daughter said she rated them a 9 out of 10. I asked, "Why a 9?" She said because I need to work with them more to know if they are a 10!" Haha. I definitely will book an appt for myself, already did one for my husband.
Dr. Refoa has only been my Dentist for the last year, but my teeth and gums have never been healthier. Her staff are very professional, clean and they show much care and compassion for their patients. I don't usually write reviews but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to praise Dr. Refoa's whole office staff... From front desk to the finished crown, it had been a pleasant experience. I definitely recommend her to all of my friends and family who are in need of a new Dentist.
It was excellent.
Great Staff, very professional and patient with children. Very friendly.
It is always an enjoyable experience visiting dr. Refoa and her wonderful staff??
Excellent. Fast. Friendly. Quick with quality!! Love the electronic checkin and appointment notifications and reminders!!
Love doctor Janet! She is the best in LA :)
Dr. Refoa is a skilled dentist and has always provided great service. She's very nice and helped to transform my smile. Her staff is pleasant and efficient and the new office is a lovely space.
I've been seeing Dr. Refoa for a while. She always listens to my concerns and takes the time to address any of my questions. Her staff is also great. I definitely recommend her and her staff!
Absolutely love Dr. Refoa's office! She's lovely, and so is the entire team. I was very nervous about going to the dentist (as I'm sure others may be), but Dr. Refoa took great care of me and did her best to put me at ease. I highly recommend!
This review is specifically directed towards the employees of Janet Refoa in the office. I've never in my life been at a business more unprofessional such as this one. I'm also not one to leave a review or be a vocal patient/customer, but this place deserves it. My first visit should have been my first hint because I found the hygienist to be rather aggressive with how she worked (but I figured maybe it was just her and didn't look into it). I had to make a second visit and I've never been this angry when I've left an appointment. First off, there was a rotation of 4-5 people who worked on my teeth (why?). Second, the dentist himself and his assistant proceeded to complain out loud about their workload and about their co-workers for the first 20 minutes. There were 2 instances where certain tools didn't work, causing one of them to spray out water onto my face every 10 minutes of my time there. The hygienist found it to be rather funny. She then proceeded to tell me that my long hair is annoying her or that I'm too sensitive every time I flinched. I understand those might be inconveniences for her, but there is a correct and a polite way to address such things. To top it off, their work was so poorly done that I am certain I need to find a good dentist to correct it. The only good things about this location is the nice, young female receptionist and the location. I only had a minute where I met Dr. Refoa and she seems to be a kind person. I've never, ever in my life stormed out and had to tell the receptionist that I will never, ever return when asked to make an appointment in 6 months. Oh and they told me it will take 1 hour so they asked me to arrive 10 minutes before they opened as I had work in an hour, they started working on me 30 minutes late and I was 50 minutes late to work. As I was leaving, there was another angry patient yelling in the appointment room. No one should ever go there, I feel sorry for the actual owner of the practice because of her employees.
She was excellent. I have been going for 20 years!! Wonderful and professional practice with high quality denistry.
Honestly the best teeth cleaning I've ever had. Really thorough and precise. They've also taught me great cleaning procedures so my gums are now supper healthy. Dr. Refoa really cares and explained exactly WHY teeth straightening matters and now documented each crack, enamel wear and gum recession for comparison next year. A great dentist, staff and beautifully designed office. Greg
I made an appointment when is December 12 1:00 pm and I called them. No one answered phone. They called me back on Monday and changed my appointment to 12/15 1:oo pm. I visited this doctor for filling and they didn't do that for me. They said some weird reason. I showed them my X-ray from UCLA dentistry. They still did not help filling my cavity.Because of my insurance is Dental-Cal, they were not nice to me. I will never go to there.
Janet is always Amazon and super gentle make me happy I come in always
Thank you Janet The pain went away! Bianca you mean business when you say deep cleaning. I have a new mouth! You guys are awesome. Thank you No more pain! Charles
Dr. Refoa is wonderful. Mojdeh is the best hygienist on the planet.
I chose a different dentist after my visit with her.
I love going to this dentist and always feel comfortable that I'm getting the best of care .
She gave the honest professional advice based on her knowledge and experience.
Excellent dentist. Smart, communicates every option well. Very patient. And nice, which is so important.
I was very scared of coming in for my wisdom tooth extraction but the entire office was very helpful and made the process so much easier. My dentist was able to remove my tooth and the entire process was quick and relatively painless. I would highly recommend this office to anyone for any dental procedure as they were dedicated to making sure that I was comfortable and trusted them the whole time.
Dr Janet Refoa is the best densit in Los Angeles, First my visit was emergency she helped me right away and take care of me perfectly! Now my smile is beautiful because of dr Janet Refoa!
Dr. Refoa treated me differently as soon as she discovered I was using Medi-cal. She skimped on services (mouthwash after opening my gums, Novocain during certain cutting procedures) and seemed to use as few resources as possible. The worst part is, I ended up paying for the services I needed that my insurance didn't cover (front tooth), and she did a really sup-bar job. I mean I wasn't expecting her to give me a Jim Carey smile after, but at least a tooth that matches the shape of my other teeth would be nice. The staff was very pleasant, but Dr. Refoa's attitude changed as soon as she realized I wasn't using good insurance. As difficult as it is to trust a Dentist in the first place, this was a super disappointing experience. Why "accept" Medi-Cal patients when you don't have to? I can't wait for the glue to ware off in a couple years so I can replace it.
Janet as a real pro and very talented and experienced!! The best.
Painless, helpful, they are amazing. I will recommend to everyone.
No bedside manner, terribly rude, worst experience I've ever had at the dentist
I'm upset and feel as though I should warn people. Although I already knew the customer service was sub par, the employees seemed to really care when it came to my finances. So the second time I went in with my insurance and was being asked to pay ridiculous amounts for basic services which I had never paid an arm and a leg for. I called my insurance and they said I should get the code for my treatments and then figure it out from there. Basically, I'm changing my dentist. They were trying to charge me double and triple what I should be paying. All I can say is just be aware of what your insurance actually covers before you go to this office.
Very competent and professional. Really cares about her patients!!
As always, it was a good visit. the staff is always smiling and helpful and very patient with me. I appreciate the time they take to help me feel comfortable and complete whatever procedure we are doing.
