Verified Patient Reviews
The staff at this office was SO warm and welcoming. I went in a bit nervous/embarrassed about a wisdom tooth issue and they made me feel completely at ease. So happy I found this office!!
Dr. K was awesome. Very sincere, caring and available
I highly recommend this detail oriented primary care dentist. You'll get his complete attention along with a skill set that I haven't seen in for quite some time. Office and equipment was super clean and inviting. If you are looking for a primary care dentist downtown and near the metro, look no further
Really nice office and staff. Dr K had a great bedside manner - friendly and light hearted. The massage chair in the waiting room was a plus!
I have nothing but positive things to say about Dr. K and his staff. I have been to plenty of dentists in the area and Dr. K beats them all by a wide margin. While I am not trained in dentistry, it is pretty obvious that his skills are top notch. I always leave the office feeling very content with my visit. Dr. K not only answers my questions throughly & knowledgeably but also helps to manage pain. Along with D. K, all of his office staff are exceptional. The staff is warm, welcoming and professional. Highly recommend this dental office!
I had a great experience at smile la dental practice! Both Dr. Kourosh and his assistant were very professional and the environment was very pleasant. Thank you for making my experience so great! Highly recommend them
I had a broken tooth, that was hurting badly. I went to another dentist who told me that he could not save it and that I had to get implant. This office saw me right away; Dr K saved my tooth; and I paid a fraction of what it would had cost me if I would had got implant. Dr k was very gentle; explained everything along the way. The staff were very nice. I strongly recommend this office.
Visit went very well. Everyone was really kind and informative. No wait, just had to fill out some paperwork and was let right in. Honestly it has been a while since I went to the dentist and it was my first time going to Dr. Yousefzadeh and so I was a little worried about my consultation, but everything went well and everyone was professional. Teeth cleaning went smoother than pervious dentists. No pain or any issues. They took the extra time to educate about cleaning and dentistry. Learned a couple cool facts on bacteria too. Overall I felt comfortable with Dr. Yousefzadeh and will return again for future cleanings. I would recommend him to a friend.
Overall solid visit. Friendly staff and short wait time. There were two points that could have been improved on, though. First, when I created my appointment through ZocDoc, I made it clear that I needed a check-up as well as a cleaning, but when I arrived, they only had me scheduled for a check-up. Second, it felt as if they were trying to sell me extra services. They kept on pushing a "deep cleaning", but instead of explaining the service, they kept saying it would be covered by insurance (even though a majority of it wasn't) and I should do it. Maybe they're just accustom to people taking their recommendations at face value, but It rubbed me the wrong way. Just something to keep in mind.
I've had bad experiences at other dental offices, but at Smile LA, everyone there is super great and the facility is beautiful, it doesn't look like a dental office at all. They make you feel very comfortable and they are super nice and caring.
Everyone was very kind and considerate. They explained everything they were going to do before they did it and helped explain the costs to me and what insurance would cover. A great staff & nice office.
Friendly, professional. I will absolutely come back.
I saw Dr. Y at the last minute for an exam and cleaning before a flight and he was excellent! Super professional and thorough., and very friendly and warm.The office space in DTLA is gorgeous and clean--You can tell they work with a lot of working professionals. Sharon did my cleaning and she was fast and thorough.
It was great. Felt taken care of by all of the staff. GREAT cleaning!!!
I've had to get 10 fillings over the past year and I have been to three different dentist and my experience at Smile has been far and above any other dentist I have been to. For one, you don't feel the local anesthetic application, other places you feel some pain during this and for two you can quickly tell Dr. K is a master at dentistry. I will have all further dental work done here!
Informative, fast, and easy!
Dr K is an amazing Doctor he and his staff was very welcoming and informative about my visit. I highly recommend Dr. K
Dr. K is the best dentist in LA. Very knowledgable, honest and patient. He takes the time to explain everything and answer all of your questions and concerns. He is also very delicate with treating your teeth. I had two fillings done without any anesthesia and I barely felt any pain. The entire office staff are very friendly.
The whole staff was great.doctor exsplained everything so i understood it perfectly..they even helped me get financed for the dental work..i wouls definitely recommend them in the future
I definitely recommend Dr. Yousefzadeh. Even though he did not take my insurance, he offered to still see me for the issue I was having. He treated me like any other patient and was kind enough to recommend me to a specific oral surgeon. He seemed to have a lot of experience. His staff was super nice as well, both the hygienist and the office manager, who greeted me with the warmest welcome when I came in. The office was super clean and had a cool vibe to it as well.
Friendly staff, beautiful office and very accomodating!!
Dr. K and his staff are amazing! Highly reccomend!
Dr. Kourosh and staff are GREAT, very friendly, further everyone communicates well and is very accessible via email! HUGE plus that insurance and eligibility was looked up before my appointment. As a new patient everything was wonderful, and I appreciate the transparency in regards to cost. Truly modern in design and equipment. It's a very organized office. The hygienist is lovely and skilled with painless cleaning, as my gums are very sensitive. Dr. K is very knowledgeable and so kind in taking time being fully present answering any questions and concerns. He even took the time to demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques. In response to my problems, he proposed clear planned solutions to solve each issue. I left the office confident knowing that my concerns were addressed by the caring team in Smile LA. I'm looking forward to my next dental visit!
Can't say I've ever enjoyed going to the dentist, but my dental visit with Dr. Kouros has been the best I've ever had. The staff is highly skilled and truly caring. They seems very genuine and honest about the procedures that needed to be done, and their prices. I didn't feel as if I was being pushed into anything or taken advantage of. Lastly I can say with confidence that I'm very happy to have found this practice, and I would 100% refer Smile LA to everyone! Benny . A
Dr K and his staff were very professional. I felt as though I mattered (as a patient) to them. The hygienist "Miki" was thorough, gentle and used the latest technology available. The office personnel, Johanna and assistant Norma, did an outstanding job for this dental practice. I will be more than happy to schedule in the future. Sincerely, Robert
I was in LA for bussiness trip and I made an appointment for a dental emergaency. I had two visit so far and i am very satisfied with the service i received from Dr Kourosh and his professional team including the office manager,the hygienist and his assistants. Dr K was very thorough,patient and knowledgable. Most importantly , i dident feel the needle at all! I wish he was my dentist back to my hometown.
Dr. K is very dedicated to his practice and his concern for his patients is first and foremost. Miki the hygienist is experienced in her field and uses the latest technology including the air polisher.Norma the assistant makes everyone feel welcome and comfortable. The billing and general office affairs are taken care of by Johanna. It is a very pleasant office. I was very pleased. Kay
It was a great experience. Have pain during weekend but all goes away with his gentel manner Whsh him the best
Very pleasant indeed!!! Dr. Kourosh is an excellent dentist. He took the time to explain every procedure to me thoroughly. He is quite professional and has a naturally lovely personality. I would recommend Dr. Kourosh Y to everyone. He is absolutely the best dentist I have ever had. Thank you doctor for the great experience and quality of work you have done on my teeth. I am usually fearful about needles, yet it was no sweat at all because of the gentle touch and supportive environment of your office. Looking forward to my next dental appointment. Lin
I travel an hour for my dental visit and it is well worth the trip! Dr. Kourosh and the staff are quite knowledgeable and insightful. I had an emergency visit and the they saw me with no wait time. I have to mention that he was very gentle too. Delighted to say I have finally found a dentist I can count on.
From the moment I called to inquire about my wisdom teeth, the lady who answered was so sweet and accommodating. I explained to her how much pain I was in and requested to see the Dentist as soon as possible. She was able to schedule me within the next hour. I arrived to the Office and the waiting room was very clean. They offered water, granola bars, and even apples. The lady at the front desk greeted me with a smile and helped me fill out all my paperwork. The whole office smiled and communicated with each other in a very pleasant way. I was called in to see the dental assistant first. She was very kind and was very careful with my mouth since I was in a lot of pain. She took the time to explain everything to me in detail. When the dentist came in he gave me instructions on how to care for my teeth until the scheduled visit to remove my wisdom teeth. The friendly office manager even sent me a follow up email just to check up on me and see if the mouthwash they gave me was working. Needless to say, my next appointment is to remove my wisdom teeth. I am nervous but confident that I have picked the right team to take care of me. I highly recommend Dr. Kouroush and his ENTIRE team!
The whole staff is very kind. They make sure to bring a smile to anyone who visits!
I went there for a dental clean up and all they did was to tell me how horrible my dental health was and that they could not even my teeth. 1 year after, I was able to get a perfect clean up somewhere and the issues this office mentioned to me were not anything we talked about. They are only trying to make you feel bad about your teeth and make money through it and it was very obvious from my visit. I will never ever go there again.
Dr. K is the best dentist I've ever had. He genuinely cares about his patients and talks you through any issues and concerns. After having many dishonest dentists, I'm very happy to find one that I trust. His staff is also very welcoming and friendly. I would highly recommend!
