Encino Dental Center
I have been coming to DR CLIGHER, and Encino Dental Center for well over 17 years. The staff, and DR CLIGHER make you feel comfortable and at ease immediately. So when the time came that I needed dental implants, of course I went there. Their prices were reasonable, they did an amazing job, as you can see in the photo of DR CLIGHER, and I taken right after he completed the process. He implanted the entire top of my mouth. No pressure, no pain. The staff was always right there to attend to every need. They really make you feel at home. And in my case, DR CLIGHER took the time to answer any questions, alleviate any fears, I might have had. As a matter of fact, because it was such an amazing experience, I am going back, next year, and although I only need a few on the bottom, I am having Encino Dental Center implant those as well. You know when you are sorry to have the weekly dental visits end, that ENCINO DENTAL CENTER is great place. The only time one loves to go to the dentist.

Dr. Levi and his staff are the BEST.From the moment I entered the office, I was kindly greeted by Anna. She was incredibly informative regarding the procedure I was seeking. The insurance coverage and billing options were thoroughly explained as well. Dr. Levi met with me and with his outstanding knowledge he further explained the treatment steps and alternative ways to solve my problem. The treatment itself was completely pleasant, pain free and he's so light on his hands. Dr Levi, - It was a pleasure to accept the treatment from you. I would highly recommend Dr. Levi and his office.

Dr. Shiela Mahooti is professional, knowledgeable, and gentle. She is quick to respond to questions and concerns. I am happy my wife suggested that I chose Dr. Mahooti as my new dentist. Her support staff is always very pleasant and helpful, as well. The office itself is lovely and very clean. I am happy to have found a compassionate dental practice that listens and responds to my needs. Thanks, Dr. Mahooti!

Babak Manesh DDS
My family and I have been coming to this office since it opened. Dr. Manesh is a professor at USC and a very knowledgeable and skilled dentist. He takes his time to do a thorough job and teaches us how to take care of our teeth in the best possible way. His staff are always friendly and courteous. And I have never had to wait in the waiting room!! That's a big plus for me too!

I have been coming to Dr. Koletic for years. She is also my son's dentist. She has been there for cleanings and often house calls. We have recommended her to several of our friends and family members who have also been with her for many years now. The office staff is friendly and consistent with calling to remind us of our upcoming appointments. We love coming here.

Encino Care Pharmacy
I had to find a rare prescription for my kids and this was the only pharmacy in the area that carried it. But I gave them 5 stars because the pharmacist went out of his way to find a coupon online forme which saved me over half of the cost of this very expensive drug. I didnt ask him to, he did it to helpme out knowing how much my total was going to be.

I was referred to Dr. Levi by my friend and for that I’m grateful! After 2 month of extensive work, including crowns and implants, I finally got my smile back! Thank you, Dr. Levi! You are so friendly and talented! I highly recommend going to Dr. Levi’s office. You won’t be disappointed! I have already recommended him to all my relatives and friends.

Schneider & Harpaz, D.D.S., Inc
I've had no problems coming here for my dental needs. The staff are always courteous to me, the front office manager is very nice & Dr. Schneider is a great dentist that has taken care of my teeth for several years now. It's unfortunate other reviewers have not had the same experience I have. I would still very much highly recommend Dr. Schneider!!

My friend recommended me Dr. Levi -- I listened to her and I couldn't be any happier. Dr. Levi was so knowledgable, and there was a welcoming atmosphere in the clinic. I usually don't write many reviews, but I was just so pleased that I had to. I recently moved to Encino from the Bay Area, and I'm glad that I now have a dentist I can trust.
Tips & Advices
  • If a tooth decays and the nerves or pulp (soft internal tissue which helps teeth develop) become inflamed or infected
  • If a tooth is cracked or broken and nerves are exposed
This generally depends on any specific issues you wish to address with your teeth. There are toothpastes designed to whiten teeth, fight cavities, decrease sensitivity, prevent bad breath, resist gingivitis, and those specific to children (with lower fluoride content). There are also toothpastes that offer “complete” protection by combining aspects of many of the above toothpastes.
It’s recommended to get a professional cleaning at least two times per year.
  • Desensitizing toothpaste numbs the nerves in the teeth that can cause discomfort.
  • Mouth guard can protect against grinding teeth during sleep.
  • Fluoride treatment can be applied by dentists to sensitive areas to numb teeth and strengthen enamel.
  • Root canal can treat problems in a tooth’s core.
  • Surgical gum graft where a piece of gum tissue is removed from a section of the mouth to cover an exposed root.
Not everyone needs to have their wisdom teeth removed, but there are certain signs that can help you and your doctor determine if yours should be:
  • Wisdom teeth are pushing other teeth around, causing pain and misalignment
  • Cysts form around newly emerged wisdom teeth, causing jaw damage
  • Gums get inflamed and swollen, causing cavities and pain
  • Doctor determine from x-rays that wisdom teeth will cause problems in the near future
