My GD referred me to Dr. Afar for an implant consultation. He is such a nice doctor, very good at what he does. I ended up getting an implant placed by him. He was really thorough and explain the whole process to me and told me everything I needed to know. After he placed the crown on the implant, my artificial tooth looks just like my natural teeth. It's amazing.
This place is hard to find, the parking is compact, and it lies within big buildings and busy streets. On the other hand, the environment is welcoming, the staff members are nice, scheduling can be prioritized, wonderful doctors, and the equipment are top quality! I can say that whenever I have my regular or emergency appointments at Wilshire Smile Studio the convenient time is scheduled to me. The doctors are very knowledgeable and caring when it comes to my dental care. I can always ask questions and they gladly answer them. I found Wilshire Smile Studio through a friend of mine and I’m glad she recommended this place. Compared to the past dentists I’ve come across this one is really well-trusted. I wouldn’t mind paying the price for the excellent care on my teeth!
My teeth are healthy and bright for the holidays. I’ve always been so conscious of my smile because of my slight overbite. I wasn’t sure if i wanted to get braces because i also did not find that attractive. I wasn’t aware of Invisalign at the time till one of my friends had educated me about it. Then it was set, i had to get them for myself too. I looked for a dental office that specializes in cosmetic and thats when i came across Wilshire Smile Studio. Called them up, made an appointment, came in for a check up and then there they laid out the plan for me and I got sold. Let me tell you, I cannot be anymore happy with my new look. I’m still their usual patient there because of my routine adjustments but its always a pleasure. I cannot be anymore grateful that they always have my appointments lined up for me - scheduled and they always call me with a friendly reminder. It’s always a friendly service at Wilshire Smile, i want thank them as a team. i highly recommend Wilshire Smile Studio for any dental related problems.
I had a few teeth that were badly stained. My dentist couldn't take a stains off no matter what he did. I decoded to get a consultation from other dentists. Dr. Baseri checked my teeth and said because the stains are intrinsic, no whitening treatment could take them off. He recommended covering my teeth with veneers to mask the stains. And he did a great job. My teeth look good now. My regular dentist should have known that. I'm changing my dental office to Wilshire Smile Studio now.
I scheduled an appt with WIlshire Smile Studio randomly because my mom has been bugging me to get some sort of check up for my teeth. So I looked through online and found this to be the closest one to my work. Boy ! was I lucky or what!?
My first appointment, i didn't really know what to expect so i went to the office - sat and waited for 3 minutes max and i got to see the doctor. There were no problems whatsoever …. so again. am i lucky or what!? haha. Anyways. I just wanted to leave this short review for Wilshire Smile jus to say thanks -- i'll be back soon.
My favorite !
I love WIlshire Smile. I know pretty much all the employees here -__- I'm like their special patient. I always get the VIP treatment not that ... they don't treat all their patients that way haha.
I like to take care of my teeth, i go here for my regular cleaning and check up. So far so good ! I also got my braces here years ago tho .. when i was in highschool. that's why my teeth are super straight.. No one wants to have ugly teeth right?! Thanks Wilshire Smile Studio for maintaining my pretty smile .
I’ve never really liked how crooked and twisted my teeth are, but they never bothered me to the point of wanting orthodontic treatment like braces. When I heard about Snap-On Smile, I knew it was the thing for me. All it took was a consultation with Dr. Ghasri, where I had dental impressions taken. My Smile was made just for me in a dental lab, and it fits perfectly. I couldn’t be happier with my new look.

Dr. Igal Elyassi wanted to perform over $2500 worth of UNNECESSARY work! I was told I needed a deep cleaning, a crown and one filling. The first visit I was put in an office and really given the hard sell for $5000 implants and everything else. I felt like I was buying a car and being pressured to get the under coating. And with the second visit came the bait and switch for the $1350 deep cleaning which I was originally told would be around $150. I also got the strong-arm to quickly make another appointment for the crown and filling to be done. After those two rather odd and dubious visits I knew something just wasn't right with this place so I went back to my trusted dentist of 10 years for a second opinion. She checked me out and told me that I DID NOT need the crown, just a filling and that the other tooth was fine. The deep cleaning was also NOT necessary.
The up-sell and pressure tactics at Wilshire Smile Studio are pretty clever. They are also very expensive. It cost me over $350 just for the exams and x-rays. My dentist gave me new x-rays, an exam, the filling and cleaning all for LESS than that! I'm so glad I didn't go through with Dr. Elyassi's diagnosis. I saved myself a lot of pain in both my mouth and wallet.
The Wilshire Smile Studio seems to be in the business of soaking every penny out of either you or your insurance company by perform unnecessary and over priced work.
FYI - I understand why there may be some positive reviews. The place is very slick and the staff seems professional, but it's all smoke and mirrors. If I hadn't got a second opinion, I may have given them a positive review myself. The grand facade and clever ruse almost had me fooled too. I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones that got away clean - well not quite.

I love this place! I found the Wilshire Smile Studio totally by accedent when I called them by mistake!! I was actually calling a friend and dialed the wrong number!. When the person answered the phone, I had a moment of, where am I? ... Reaizing the mistake, the guy who answered the phone started having fun with me and the next thing I know he was asking me if I needed a great dentist... I said I did..Long story short, I was in the office the next day getting a cleaning (I had no cavities by the way!!). I have to say, the Wilshire Smile Studio is like a big family, I never thought I would feel so relaxed going to the dentist! What a good luck moment for me! Happy holidays!!

I can't believe how bright my teeth are!! I went to the Wilshire Smile Studio on Thursday to have my teeth whitened, I honestly never thought my teeth could look so good. I was in the chair listening to music while they put this thing on my mouth that looked like something from Star Trek.. When they took it off, I rinsed my mouth out and was blown away how my coffee stains had just vanished. I had a similar treatment about three years ago in San Diego, but the results were mixed and my teeth were sensitive. I am going to my sisters wedding next week and I am so happy that my teeth will look as good as my dress!!

I had a great experience at the Wilshire Smile Studio. I had a cracked filling that my previous dentist said would require a root canal to fix. My friend recommended Dr. Elyassi to me for a second opinion. As it turned out, the trip not only saved me money but saved me having a root canal on that tooth. After looking things over Dr. Elyassi said that the tooth DID need a filling, but NOT a root canal. I had some Novacaine and before I new it, I was on my way with a filling and a smile!

I don't like dentists and I never thought I would be talking the time to write a review about one, but Dr. Elyassi is different! From the moment I arrived everyone treated me like I mattered.. I have been through the ringer when it comes to doctors and dentists - and too many don't care about a patient, just the insurance card! I was only getting my teeth cleaned, but I felt that everyone was so focused on me. I didn't have to sit there waiting like my old dentists. He took the time to show me where he was looking inside my mouth with a camera - I have to admit, being a tech geek, that was VERY cool! The Dr. Explained to me what he looks for and what I can do to make sure my teeth and gums stay healthy. I was lucky, it's been over a year since i have been to the dentist and I have a clean bill of health, no cavities!! Thanks!

I had recently joined a Volleyball league that meets every other week. A few of my friends decided to take Friday off and practice at the beach. Long story short, I caught an elbow while going to the net and nearly had my tooth broken in half. My friend who hit me by accident was devastated and a little freaked out. I wasn

I just got my first checkup last week since moving here from Japan. Going to the dentist is a very scary thing for me since I do not have family here. I want to thank Mr. Eric for explaining everything to me and making sure everything went perfectly. I had one small cavity that the doctor fixed it and you could not even tell that it was fixed and most of all, I didn

There are so many dentists in LA but it is very hard to find one who is honest, gentle and does good work. Luckily I found Dr. Poneh who fits the criteria! I was referred to her by a co-worker but was very apprehensive. During my first appointment, I told her that I'm embarrassed about my teeth, haven't been to the dentist in a while and that I'm very phobic. She was EXTREMELY sympathetic, took her time to explain every single procedure that I needed and told me to call her if I had any questions. She even gave me her cell phone #! Needless to say, I made an appointment and had a deep cleaning, several fillings, and a root canal and a crown done.
Every visit was very pleasant. She constantly asked me if I was ok while she was working on me and would ask me if I needed a break. I felt absolutely no pain or discomfort after my visits and was very impressed by the esthetic results.
I am aware that I have an HMO and that I have copays for certain procedures and some are not even covered. I verified the fees for my treatment plan with my insurance company. It's very unrealistic to expect everything to be covered with your insurance, especially if you have an HMO, so people have realistic expectations!!!!!!
5 stars all the way
