    The dental care that my husband and I received at Mid-Wilshire Dental Care was amongst the best we have ever experienced. My husband is the son of a dentist, so his assessment carries the weight of experience. The staff is wonderful, particularly the office manager, Torri, who had to spend 45 minutes with our insurance carrier, making certain that our insurance covered our dental needs. The two dentists we worked with were absolutely superb. The dental hygienists were excellent also. In fact, everything about this particular dental office rates very high in our estimation. I think that when you decide to use Mid-Wilshire Dental Office, you are definitely making a decision for excellent and thorough care.

    Great Dentist, friendly staff (not the most talkative but not mutes either). The Denist was friendly but to the point about what I was doing wrong and what I need to change. She wasn't rude or demeaning in any way she just explained exactly what I needed to do to improve and what I should expect.

    I'm still in the midst of my treatment, but everything up to this point has been so much more than I had hoped for! I don't even know where to start! First, I have ALOT of work to be done. I was in an accident and circumstances prevented me from being able to finish all of my dental work back then, so now I can finally start the process. I was very scared when I went in. I've been through a lot with dentists and I'm embarrassed about the way my teeth look at this point. Every single person in the office was super supportive and understanding of my situation. Dr. Afar told me that I didn't have to be afraid anymore. You have NO idea how much that means to me. The staff helped me work out how to put this plan in motion and they supported me emotionally when I needed it. Dr. Afar personally made sure that my denture colors matched and that I will be happy with my smile. He encouraged me to not be shy about questions or concerns. I'll just cut to the chase, I cried as I left Dr. Afar's office last time. Not because of pain or fear, but because I genuinely felt that he (and his staff) cared and out of joy/excitement about being able to smile again.

    I informed the dentist of my fear and they were very accomodating. I had two of my wisdom teeth pulled and I experienced very little pain. I did however take advantage of the nitrous oxide. Through it all I have to return for more dental work and I don't have any fears at all. In fact I have recommended three other people and two of them will be going this coming week

    At first I had second thoughts about calling you guys but I wish I had done it a long time ago. My biggest phobia was being in a dental office, but after my visit with the recommended dental office, my phobia is gone. Well, almost, as long as I remain with this one I am sure that everything will be just fine. I already started my procedure and they will be doing my entire mouth. My next appointment is on September 1st. Thank you 1800 dentist. I am forever grateful to you guys. Sincerely, Yadira

    I'll admit, I hate going to the dentist, and will do my best to delay appointments. But Mid-Wilshire Dental Care really does an amazing job of making you feel comfortable and well taken care of. Their hygienists are kind and gentle. They'll tell you what you need to do, but without scolding or making you feel bad. Highly, highly recommend!

And it's all thanks to this incredible Dentist and his amazing staff. This was entirely a different and more positive experience than I have ever had with a dental procedure before. I am so happy!

    I've been going to Midwilshire Dental Care for years and have always been treated with great respect. Dr. Afar takes the time to have consultations, where you leave completely understand your dental health and what procedures may arise in the future -- including receiving an estimate to understand the finances involved. I recommend this dental office and Dr. Afar!

    Kept me waiting for hour and half.My X-rays were not sent from Sunset (their other office)and they wanted to do it again, exposing me to more radiation unnecessarily. After Dr. Afar explained his treatment plan I was skeptical about his method and treatment plan and I obtained a second opinion from an oral surgeon. Sure enough it became apparent that Dr. Afar's proposed treatment plan was more motivated by greed than what was best for me, his patient. I would never use him again.

    While the office was well kept and staff were nice, the exam I was given was a complete scam and false regarding my health. I was informed I had 7 cavities when indeed there was only 1, and encouraged to pursue a dental health plan the was going to cost me $2500. I got a second opinion from my normal DDS and received superior care in every way. I will never see this office again nor recommend you to ANYONE. You are frauds and should be reported.

    Dr. Alina is my favorite dentist. She's always kind and knowledgeable. Unfortunately, her assistant (maybe Tony, I didn't clearly catch his name) was curt and cursed not-quite-under his breath when I informed him I was interested in a mouth guard. They were busy that day, and he didn't think they had time to make the mold. They were so busy, in fact, that I was asked to reschedule my cleaning for the day I would pick up my mouth guard in two weeks. Thankfully, Dr. Alina did have time to fill my cavity immediately.
