    I will not be returning to this office. They way overcharged me, ordered a cat scan that was not needed, with the end result is it cost me 1,300 for a tooth extraction.

    the problem I experienced was being a medi-medi customer. I was told they did not except medi-medi patients. I called Health Net to verify my eligibilty/coverage both of which were confirmed. I explained that I had an urgent issue, if there was going to be a problem please call and inform me. This was not done, not even when the office call to confirm that I would be able to make my appointment. They took full mouth ex-rays and evaluation then proceed to tell me I would need $4,292, none of which was covered by insurance. Really???

    I wish I had found this dentist 3 years ago when I first moved to Los Angeles, I would have been going to the dentist more regularly. I really liked the customer service and they were able to accommodate me for a general cleaning. The dentist himself also spent some time checking and cleaning my teeth which I have not experienced before. I would recommend personal dental. Unfortunately I will not be in LA anymore so I wont be visiting this dentist again but I will call back for reference to another.

    Thanks so much! I love 1800 Dentist and the dental office you set me up with! I`m losing my insurance at the end of the year and everyone was so kind and accommodating and helped me book an appointment the very next day! The office was clean, friendly and I was in and out with full x-rays and cleaning in an hour.. Perfect!

    As I have noted previous, I am the biggest coward to visit the dentist- I am 6' 2", 200 lbs. This office treates me like I am their only patient. Very patient, always courteous and accommodating. I am 71 years old and and have found the dental office I will grow old with.

    I gave this office all 5's as a legitimate expression of my experience. Though I must admit I was also influenced by how much my previous experiences with other dentists well, sucked. But from my first visit, the staff front to back was friendly and on the ball. How often does somebody say, "I can't wait to go back to the dentist." Me either, but you get it.

    This is just for Dr. Nelson not the other doctors. He left the office in middle of working on me. He never explained what he needed to do or why he was doing it. After the assistant finished the work the staff at the front office told me I need to have an additional expensive procedure. The doctor should have stayed and explained the treatment to me and not have sneaked out of the office to avoid having to have a difficult conversation.

    Waited about an hour to go in. Oral Surgeon extracted right side first and then went to treat other patients before he came back to extract the left tooth. I thought that was a bit unprofessional but the staff is nice and the office is clean.

    I love my dentist and his staff. Everyone is friendly and helpful. I was concerned about teeth staining and what causes it. Dr. Nelson carefully explained this to me, but assured me I had a "great smile" and didn't need to worry about it at this time. Its so refreshing to have a doctor that won't suggest unncessary procedures. **also love the variety of magazines in the waiting room**

    I have a terrible fear of dentists and my previous dentist wanted to extract a tooth. I was apprehensive & requested thru my insurance authorization for a 2nd opinion. This is how I found Personal Dentist... Dr. Besser took the time to do a thorough exam, explained the situation & felt she could help, I trusted her from the beginning & she saved me from an extraction!! I've now switched dentists and highly recommend them. I've even referred 2 of my friends. Haven't lost my fear, but they have made me feel very comfortable & more important I trust them.
