Shortly before my appointment at West Coast Dental of Van Nuys, I looked up reviews on the place. Yelp had all bad reviews, while other sites (Insider Pages, Yellow Pages) had good reviews. BELIEVE YELP!!!
On the surface, the place looks like any regular dentist. It's clean, and when I went it wasn't very busy. Everyone I dealt with was super nice, until I met the dentist.
It quickly became very clear that the dentist is just looking for ways to charge you money. First, she went on and on about how I need to start flossing. I floss every day and have for years, and in the past dentists have always been very complimentary of it. She then told me that I have a very complicated cavity in between my teeth that will be very hard to fix. They later told me that it would cost well over 1000 dollars to do that filling the way she said it needed to be done. I also had her look at a wisdom tooth. I had a feeling before going that I would need to get one pulled because it's been growing in wrong, but I also have another one that has been in for years that many dentists have seen and have told me not to worry about. The other two are not in yet. She told me I need to have all four pulled, which after insurance would cost $400, meaning that if I didn't have insurance it would be $2000! FInally, she told me that they were adding a bacteria killing wash to my regular teeth cleaning that would cost $120 more.
Obviously, I told her no to the $120 wash. I got my regular cleaning, told them thanks, and am now looking for a legit dentist to check out my wisdom tooth.
Long story short, do not go here!! They overcharge and will do anything to get more money out of you!

This is my dentist of choice. I have been going to this dentist at this location for a few years now. I take my husband and my two kids here too. I am always satisfied with their service and treatment. I recommend the staff and the dentist. My dentist is very considerate and gentle. He always explains the procedure to me and makes sure I understand the entire process. My teenage kids are also very happy with this office. My son had to get a root canal and the entire procedure went perfect. The staff is great too. I get great appointments and everything always goes smooth. If you want to switch your dentist, I say you should choose this one.

I am a very happy patient and more than satisfied with the dental care I have received. The office is professionally run. I have never had a problem scheduling an appointment, been kept waiting for an appointment or had a problem with a bill. They make going to the dentist a stress free experience.

Our family has been patients at West Coast Dental in Van Nuys for a few years. The dentist and hygenists work really well with our kids...even our youngest son who has trouble sitting still for his cleanings. Of course, the are great with the grown ups too. The office is clean and the equipment is updated. Great family dental office.

I have to give props to my dentist and the staff at West Coast Dental in Van Nuys. The office is well run and my dentist knows his stuff. He does a good job with my regular cleanings. He noticed how yellow my teeth were. ( I drink a lot of coffee) He told me about teeth whitening and recommended what type would work best for me. I decided to do it and the results are amazing. My smile has never looked better. TY!
