My experience was very satisfactory, I came here for a root canal and from start to finish everything went well. I've been to other dental offices, this place is the best thus far. Everything was explained to me clearly as to what I needed, what must be done, and what I should expect. The case manager was very thorough, the staff were friendly and accommodating. I'm always afraid and nervous having dental work done, but if you feel this great walking in a dental office, it makes a patient less nervous. Then next was to be on a dental chair, the dental assistant took x-rays, and after a short time, it was time for the moment to being face to face with the dentist, oh was I really nervous!! Well, Dr. Lim proved me wrong, because he was friendly, gentle, calm, and was unhurried. Then the case manager came in and explained explicitly that it is better to get the root canal done now instead of a crown and later on if i have some pain, the dentist will take the crown out again, then eventually spending for a root canal. Saving money works for me so I agreed to get it done. That same night, Dr. Lim called to check how I was feeling. I had no pain at all, even after the day and another day after. I waited two weeks for my permanent crown then the complete procedure was done! I wish all dentist and all dental procedures are these painless! Thank you for making me feel good.

Shervin M. Louie D.D.S
When one of my upper molars broke, leaving a sharp fragment above the gum line, I was dreading a painful tooth extraction that I expected would leave me in agony for a solid week or more. However, I absolutely had to see dentist right away, so I did a web search and decided to give Dr. Louie a call. I spoke with Angela, who answered all of my questions in a friendly, professional manner, and, best of all, she scheduled an appointment for me right away. When I arrived at the office, Dr. Louie’s assistants Mina and Alla took x-rays and prepped me for the procedure, explaining each step along the way. Their high level of competence and concern for the patient’s comfort really put me at ease. Dr. Louie reviewed the x-ray results with me, and outlined all the possible treatment options clearly. His administration of anesthetic was by far the most skilled I have ever experienced---at no time during the procedure did I feel any pain whatsoever. And, much to my surprise, the extraction took only a few minutes to perform. Dr. Louie and his team are true professionals who really know what they are doing, and I give them my highest recommendation.

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.

Arejan Silva DDS
After previously seeing another dentist and being dissatisfied with the results, I was recommended to Dr. Silva Arejian, DDS. She was touted as one of the best cosmetic dentists in the area and upon researching their website, her smile makeovers seemed nothing short of miraculous. Hoping to achieve the same result, I met with Dr. Silva Arejian, DDS. After listening to my issues and inspecting my teeth, she promised that she would be able to not only help me aesthetically, but also maintain the health of my existing teeth. Her kind and patient demeanor helped reassure me that I had made the right decision by seeking her expertise. During my appointment, she worked diligently at doing what was medically correct while providing me with the look I was originally striving to achieve from my previous dentist. Upon completion, I cannot express the thrill I received when I looked in the mirror for the first time. Once again, Dr. Silva Arejian, DDS lived up to her reputation and performed a true miracle. I am so grateful...

Dr. Lim was very kind and professional. In fact, the whole staff was very friendly. I went and I was very happy with their service-I got an evaluation and treatment all on the same day-other places will usually make you come back again with no treatment. And they're really technologically advanced. Everything is computerized and digital. I saw my x-rays and actual pictures of my teeth right before my eyes. Best of all, Dr. Lim explained what he thought I really needed to treat and what was optional and could wait. Leslie, the office manager, told me exactly how much I would have to pay, which took out all of the guesswork. I'm so happy to have found a new dentist! Oh, and getting fillings were completely PAINLESS, with anesthesia of course, but this is the first time I didn't feel any sensitivity or soreness. This is a progressive dental office that offers excellent customer service and tells you exactly how much you're going to pay. I highly recommend it, and will let all of my co-workers know

Packed and over clocked. You'll wait 2 months for a checkup and when you get in there you better hope yo have a good doctor. The majority of the doctors walk into the room, barely look at you, don't want to hear your conditions, and send you on your way. I'm trying to figure out why I have cysts on my skin and horrible digestion. I had a male doctor look at my cysts and say, "Yep, that bad" and that was it. I had another doc come in, on another visit, come in and completely ignore my purpose for my visit. I had to tell her a few times I was in for blood test results. She didn't bother to look them over with me and discuss anything I should be concerned about. She did print out 1/3rd of the results and sent me home with them, clueless. I'm gonna have to wait another month to get the other results now because that's the soonest they can get me in. The staff are all overworked and stressed. The clientelle are mothers and babies and babies and toddlers. I gotta find a better place to be.

Cosmetic Dental of Westwood
I would like to say big THANK YOU to Dr. Sandra Shakibkhoo - for me the best dentist in LA and why not one of the best in the US. I was recommended to her because of my very complicated case due to a big extent to extremely bad dentistry for which I paid a fortune but made nearly crippled. Nobody wanted to deal with my case and even did not know where to start from. This woman not only said she will try to do the impossible but she did it in the best possible way. She is a real perfectionist up to the smallest detail. She always thinks how to solve your case in the best possible way for you in the long run, not only for one or two years. Thank you Dr. Sandra Shakibkhoo, you made me not only smile again but you returned my belief in the high professionalism. God bless you and your staff - all of them excellent people and professionals. I highly recommend Cosmetic Dental of Westwood to everyone who wants to have the best treatment possible.

Manolo P Nicolas DMD
About a month ago we were walking tourists in Los Angeles, on Hollywood Boulevard. One of our son very much suffering from toothaches and we could not go on the trip this way. We opened the Internet The terms List of dentists in Hollywood and only intuition we chose Doctor Nicolas. It was a bit late and in case Dr. Nicols was in the office after time reception. We explained to him the problem and he was ready to test his son on the place (even though it was already closed).Dental treatment was carried out very professionally and patiently. At the end of the Dental treatmentand recommendations, we asked how much it costs and the handling of Dr. Nicolas did not want payment. A wonderful person who helped us very much and was able to ask for any payment. He also knew that we just tourists and did not go back more and yet he treated very humanely. We thank him very much. This case says about the person's character!

Cosmetic Dental of Westwood
I have frequented Cosmetic Dental of Westwood for a few years now, and I must say they have been the best Dental experiences I've had over many, many years of visiting Dentist offices. I have had several crowns installed, filled, a root canal, and less invasive procedures such as dental cleanings, most of which were done by Dr. Sandra Shakibkhoo at Cosmetic Dental of Westwood. I would recommend Dr. Sandra Shakibkhoo to anyone who is looking for a Dentist who puts her patient's well-being above anything else that she does. The more detailed and difficult the procedure the more you should want Dr. Sandra Shakibkhoo. As a retired Quality Professional, educated in all aspects of Advanced Quality Principles, I found no Opportunities For Improvements in all aspects of my experience with Dr. Sandra Shakibkhoo and her staff.

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!
Tips & Advices
The most common dental problems in children are:
  • Cavities
  • Bad breath
  • Gum disease
  • Sensitive teeth
  • Grinding
  • Canker sores
  • Missing teeth
  • Extra teeth
  • Bite and alignment issues
Thumb sucking is not specifically a dental problem, but it can cause a malocclusion, a condition where the top and bottom teeth don't line up correctly.
To clean a baby's teeth, use a small, soft-bristled toothbrush designed specifically for infants. Apply a tiny amount of non-fluoride toothpaste - about the size of a grain of rice - and gently brush all sides of the teeth and the tongue. Before the baby's first teeth emerge, use gauze or a wet washcloth wrapped around the finger to wipe the gums. This motion doesn't necessarily reduce bacteria, but it does help the infant to get used to the sensation of having his or her teeth cleaned.
Children should visit their pediatric dentist every six months. This recommended frequency does not change throughout a person's lifetime.
No, wisdom teeth do not need to be removed unless they cause pain, lead to dental issues, or are aligned incorrectly.
Yes, dental sealants prevent cavities by filling in deep grooves in the teeth. Without them, bacteria can collect in these areas and cause tooth decay, which can happen with children.
