Best dentist experience I've ever had! I've always been scared of going to the dentist, but they always walk be through procedures before going through so I know exactly what's going on. Dr. Kim is also extremely gentle compared to any other dentist I've been to, so I'm much more comfortable going to him for any of my dental needs! I got all four wisdom teeth removed here with no issues!

Professional, kind, and caring; they provide the best dental care. I am so grateful for Beautiful Dentistry because I made the mistake of going to Western Dental in the past, all the locations of that chain have the same problems and they overcharge you, instead go to Beautiful Dentistry to get the best care even if you have Medi-Cal Dental Program.

I've always hated going to the dentist. It was to the point where I'd hold off going for years. I did my research and found Beautiful Dentistry. I have no regrets! The staff is professional and friendly and they really take their time with everything. I highly recommend this place.

Beautiful Dentistry is the best dentist in the area. The office has modern equipment and the staff is super courteous. They are truly professionals. From the receptionist who greets you, the Dentist assistants, the Dental Hygienist up to the Dentist. Everyone is nice. The best part is that they work magic, no pain while they work on your teeth, seriously. They are just the best!

With COVID restrictions, it’s been difficult finding a dentist that accepted new patients. Grace was so helpful in filling me in right away, she even offered to watch my 6 yr old while I had my exam and x-rays done! No wait time at all. All the staff are so welcoming and taking proper precautions with COVID. My dental hygienist (I feel terrible for forgetting her name) was kind and gentle, informed me of every step she was doing, and offered some great tips for my oral hygiene. Dr. David Kim was also very nice and gentle, and really took his time answering all of my questions. Really appreciate their service and look forward to my future appointments with them!

I must confess that an irrational fear of dentistry has kept me away from dental office for close to a decade and understandably, the condition of my teeth after ten years of near neglect, although serviceable and largely devoid of any major issue, is certainly in the need of professional dental care and clean up. The staff members at Beautiful Dentistry are professional yet warm and affable as they tend to their works with genuine concern, efficiency and professionalism. Claire, the dental hygienist, deep cleaned my tooth with such vigor and precision that decade old stains were scrubbed anyway pretty effortlessly yet with such a degree of sensitivity and gentleness that for all intent and purposes, the treatment has been pretty pain free. If you have watch HBO "West World" you will have an inkling of what I am describing - the staff works like A.I. in the 22nd century - tenderness with vigorous precision - and hopefully, the programming, if any, is not hack into something malevolent during the middle of the treatment. The rest of the staffs like Grace, the Office Manager, and my dentist Dr. Kim conduct themselves with equal aplomb and amicability. I must say that Beautiful Dentistry has forever change my perception of dentist and dental office and I am designating Beautiful Dentistry as my regular dentist and I can almost say with certainty that I will be undergoing by bi-annual check-up and clean-up from now on.
