Western Dental - Your Dental Home. Quality, Affordable Dentist

About

Biography
Western Dental offers a continuum of quality dental care that is convenient, affordable and accessible to all; our Dental Home is built on a strong foundation with more than a hundred years of experience. We began with a single office in Los Angeles and have since grown to be the largest dental practice management company in the West, with about 250 dental offices. Our offices provide the full range of dental and orthodontic services with a team of doctors and specialists from the top dental and medical schools in the country. In addition to general dentistry, our services include dental implants and restorative crowns using the highest quality materials available, teeth whitening and bleaching, pedodontics, veneers, and extractions. Because of the importance of good oral hygiene in maintaining overall health, each office team includes trained dental hygienists who provide complete oral hygiene services - from routine teeth cleanings to more comprehensive oral health care. Western Dental & Orthodontics is the #1 provider of orthodontic care in the U.S.* Each office is equipped with the latest, technologically advanced equipment and provides all related orthodontic and braces services - free orthodontic consultations and braces screenings, panoramic and digital x-rays, retainers and follow-up care, and many braces options (standard, gold, clear, and Invisalign) - in one convenient location. We have attractive payment plans (including CareCredit), and many patients qualify to start braces with no down payment. Each Western Dental office can provide complete details. Western Dental & Orthodontics has convenient locations, as well as evening and Saturday hours. Patients can make an appointment by calling 1.800.579.3783 to request an appointment. We welcome uninsured patients, accept nearly all dental insurance plans and we welcome patients covered by state Medicaid and Medi-Cal Dental programs (also known as Denti-Cal in California) in all of our offices.

Overall
Expertise
Facility
Professionalism

I came to Western Dental for the 1st time on Friday, July 7, 2017 for a 9:30 a.m  appointment. After waiting for nearly an hour, I was taken for x-rays by Maria, who was kind and professional. After x-rays, I was taken to a dental chair, had my mouth and face photographed by Maria and was told to wait for Dr. Clair.

At this point,  a dental hygenist came over and introduced himself as Amir. I told him that I was not there to have my teeth cleaned. He showed me the photos of my teeth and continued to explain why I needed to have this procedure done. He spoke in a condescending manner and asked if I "had a dental background."

At this point, I lightly put 2 or 3 fingers on his arm to tell him I was not interested on getting my teeth cleaned.

What happened next was truly absurd.

Amir stated that I had become violent and would be forcibly removed from the premises by the cops.

This was so far from the truth as to be laughable. To infer this assertion of "violence" from a light touch on the arm is far from what any rational person who do.

I am a 57 year old woman who has never been accused of violence and has never been threatened with removal from any place by the police. For these threats to be issued by Amir as a response to a light touch on the arm is outrageous.

Amir walked out of the examing area and was conversing with another employee telling her that to call to cops and have me removed.

I was so startled and shaken by Amir's over-reaction that I immediately left the office without seeing the dentist.

Amir needs to be disciplined, even fired for his bizarre over-reaction. He is a detriment to the Western Dental,  the North Hollywood office of Western Dental and to his profession.

Amir's horrible behavior has caused me quite a bit of grief and emotional upset. He also caused me to waste almost 2 hours at Western Dental and his behavior made me leave the office before seeing the dentist.

This is the worst experience that I have ever had at a dental office. My gesture was totally blown out of proportion and no reasonable person could assume that my behavior was violent in any sense of the word.

I will never, ever go back to Western Dental.
