This was my first visit here and selecting a new dentist since moving to Los Angeles. I had a bad experience in the past with a dentist in my home town performing excessive dental fillings in my teeth and since thenI've been very cautious. Dr. Shakibkhoo was definitely not that kind of dentist when I met her to my relief. She ensured me that her treatments were very conservative. She is very personable, patient-centered, and passionate of what she does. I can tell her assistants were very happy to work for her and are the same from their interactions. Highly recommend her as you are selecting dentists in the area!

Very quick and attentive staff. They were able to get me in and out almost immediately, and refer me to a specialist immediately. I went in at 9am, which was the earliest I could see them, and they had me outthe door and to a specialist down the street within twenty minutes. I was able to get a root canal and extreme pain of my tooth fixed within an hour and a half!

I loved visiting this office. I have two follow-up appointments and am not dreading them at all. Love that my experience was with all women! All of them very professional, smart, good-spirited, and kind. I trust them and felt right athome, despite being at the dentist. Would highly recommend! Jessica

The entire office was fantastic! From the second I walked in, I felt welcomed and was able to relax a bit. I really do not enjoy the dentist, but my visit with Dr. Shakibkhoo and her staff marked the first timeI felt somewhat at ease throughout my procedure. I would recommend their practice to everyone, especially those who are more nervous about their dental work.

Seriously, my favorite dentist ever. I absolutely loved Dr. Shakibkhoo and all hygienists / assistants I encountered. When I had issues with my wisdom teeth and was in severe pain, she gave me her cell number and even texted me tomake sure I was ok. She was located close enough to walk, but parking was always easy and everything was great. Could not recommend her enough!

Dr. Shakibhoo made me feel extremely comfortable and cared for. She is very kind and immediately put me at ease. I sincerely appreciated her transparency and attention to detail when explaining procedures to me. Beyond the Dr, the entire staffwas exceptional. Sunny was so warm and a wonderful person to initiate my new member exam and x-rays. Not only was Ashley professional and competent, but it really felt like she takes an interest in patients beyond their cleanings. The front desk staff was also helpful and kind. A wonderful experience overall!

I love Cosmetic Dental! So convenient and everyone there is really nice and helpful. They don't push extra procedures on you if you don't want them. Only issue was with scheduling- there seems to be some discrepancy between zocdoc schedulingand their scheduling. Had to reschedule like 4 times, and the appointment emails I got had the wrong times on them.

The doctor was so nice, got to know me a little bit before sticking her fingers in my mouth, explained everything really well, and every procedure she recommended she made sure the front desk explained exactly how it would work withmy insurance so I knew the breakdown of costs.

Dr. Shakibkhoo and her team were awesome! They didn't keep me waiting (which is one thing I usually dread about going to the dentist or doctor), they were very thorough in their explanations as to what they were doing and whatthey recommended (who wants to agree to a procedure when they don't even understand why they need it?), everything was very clean (!!!), and they were all friendly! :-)

This was my first visit to Dr. Shakibhoo's office. Her staff are all very friendly and made me feel comfortable. Dr. Shakibhoo is really good about making it a personal experience by getting to know you and providing a brief introon her background. She also doesn't make you feel judged when you don't do all the things you know you're supposed to do...floss, etc. I also appreciate her conservative approach. She doesn't oversell services to you. The only critique is that I wish they covered parking.

Because I am not from LA I have visited 3 different dentists in the last year trying to find one I like. My first visit to this office was absolutely stellar! I enjoyed every second I was there and can't waitto return to get my crown done. Every member on staff was completely open and friendly to me. When I wasn't with the doctor the nurses were all carrying fun conversation with me and making me feel comfortable. Dr. Shakinkhoo was extremely sweet, and definitely not out to empty my pockets. The hygienist was the exact same. Overall, I'm ecstatic I found this place and it will be my permanent dentist office for sure! Great experience! Thank you to everyone working in that office! I feel good knowing I don't have to worry about finding a good dentist that isn't trying to rip me off anymore.

This is actually my first zocdoc post, looking to make use of my insurance. Dr. Shakibkhoo was/is my first dentist after my old dentist. She was very thorough and wanted me to ask questions (in a very good way). First timeI ever had the doctor do my cleaning - it was very helpful. All the office staff were very helpful and nice. It seems she specializes in making people comfortable - I am lucky in that respect - but she was the first to ensure I was not in discomfort.

Dr. Shakibkhoo and her staff provided me with the best dental care I've ever received. I actually went to another dentist beforehand and he casually ran some x-rays and told me i need 4 fillings without so much as a discussionof the x-rays or what kind of fillings I needed. This dentist, on the other hand, sat down with me over an hour just going over the x-rays and explaining what each little mark was resulting in a diagnosis of zero cavities. All I needed was a deep cleaning, a lesson on how to floss, and I was off with a healthy and clean mouth.

I never thought I'd use the term "Dream Dentist," but my visit with Dr. Shakibkhoo could not have gone better. I used her as a second opinion, and her honesty revealed to me that my previous dentist was attempting to overchargeme for unnecessary work, so Dr. Shakibkhoo saved me hundreds of dollars. I'm so pleased with everyone on her team, I'm going to send them a gift basket.
