I love Downtown Dental LA!!
I would recommend Downtown Dental LA anytime!! Coming from a foreign country, finding a doctor and office team you know is good and you can trust is hard. So when I found Downtown Dental LA, I was relieved that I had found a dentist I can trust. I was nervous because I hadn’t been to the dentist in years and the whole team made sure I was doing alright during my appointments and kept me at ease. They not only have the top of the line equipment and materials, they are the top of the line TEAM. They are enthusiastic, gentle and actually care for their patients. They are not your typical LA doctors who are money hungry, rush you through appointments and procedures. They actually take the time to get to know you and care for you the right way. I can’t wait for my next appointment, thank you Downtown Dental!!! Also their tooth fairy is super cute!!!

Recommended By A Friend; Would Recommend
My Dentist retired. I went to his replacement and although they put in the numbing agent for the service the performed, I could feel movement. Not pain just movement. In addition, there was a gap in Customer Service, and some other issues that I had with the replacement. Sooooooo, I needed a new dentist. After hearing me say, "I need to find a dentist" for a couple of years, my co-worker--who is a patient--called them and transferred the call to me. I made an appointment and went. I had 1) Deep cleaning, 2) Cavity Filled, and 3) Dental Implants (still in the middle of the implants). STAFF - They staff was friendly and enthusiastic about their various jobs (receptionist, hygienist, Techs, Dentist). I have to admit if they weren't so enthusiastic, I probably would have got a cleaning, the cavity filled, and never returned. NUMBING Agents - I didn't feel anything. From the deep tissue cleaning to the Cavity to the implant, they numbed me to the point that I didn't feel any pain or discomfort. I was pleasantly surprised by that because I barely felt the pinch for the needle for the deeper agent. This means that the topical numbing agent is good. INFORMATION RE: Procedures - I loved that they went down the form to discuss each place where I was supposed to sign for the more intense implant procedure. There is no way that I can say -- "I didn't know." I am not anticipating problems but it is good to have a discussion on procedures. And of course, I can call if there are additional questions. OFFICE - It wasn't crowded, they spaced appointments out well so that you could come have a seat and get called up within about 5 minutes if not less. APPOINTMENTS - Not only were they spaced so that I didn't have to wait but when they gave me the estimate of how long it would take to start my implants, it took just that much time -- a little less. I had anticipated at least a 30 minute over run. Also, for my first appointment, I loved that the intake could be done on line. That was less paperwork for when I got there. PAIN Killers - My one concern was the pain killers. They gave me a prescription for Motrin and a prescription for Norco. Because of my fear of strong drugs, I did not have the Norco filled and I watched my pharmacist scratch through it to make sure that it was never filled but my personal desire would have been for them to discuss the pain killer options with me before prescribing them, including the addictive nature of Norco. A friend an I discussed my desire and the fact that I would have wanted the "if Motrin doesn't alleviate your pain, you may come back for a stronger prescription" discussion. She pointed out that they probably figured that due to the heavy bone drilling for the implant maybe they felt that the Norco was the right prescription upfront, She was probably right. It's just that my personal fear of prescription-to-addiction drugs just made that a little of putting. Yes, I would recommend them.

Stopped Grinding my Teeth and Great Cleanings
Invisalign helped realign my teeth quickly and I have stopped grinding my teeth at night, which was causing jaw pain. I also have received great cleanings and my gum recession has stopped getting worse. Downtown Dental has great staff and doctors. They are always using the newest technology, which avoids the more painful and awkward practices of the past. I have referred them to many of my friends.

Great, quality service! SUPER professional!!
First let me say, I am terrified of the dentist!! I went for a cleaning last week, had a Zoom treatment and then some crowns the following week - my experience was awesome! I was super pleased with the professionalism of all the staff and the full explanations provided. They made several hours at the dentist more than bearable. I am very very satisfied with the results and give Downtown Dental 5 stars!!!

High quality service from the highest quality staff
I found this office by searching for emergency dental care after my mother (who lives out of state) had a weekend visit to the ER for an abscessed tooth. As I was frantically calling and being turned away by virtually every dentist office in LA, Downtown Dental got her in immediately and genuinely cared about her well-being. She was treated by the friendliest staff with the utmost professionalism that week. They treated her abscessed tooth and replaced a crown, which they made in-house that same day (awesome!). My mother's experience was so great, I decided to switch to Downtown Dental myself. I ended up getting Invisalign to treat TMJ dysfunction. Initially, I was skeptical that it would even work, and have been blown away by how immediate the results were. Bottom line: This office has the best staff and the most up-to-date technology I've ever seen at a dentist's office. Five stars.

High quality and friendly staff
I've been a patient here for years. I've always had sensitive teeth and gums and the staff always takes great care to make cleanings and procedures as comfortable and pain-free as possible, whether that means having to do cleanings the old fashioned way with manual tools to keep cold/high pressure water away from my gumline. Greatly appreciated! This past year I had the pinhole procedure done to manage gum recession. I was nervous because it's a relatively new procedure and the alternative is grafting, which my father had and was very painful. The pinhole procedure was completed in just a few hours in the office. Dr. Mungcal and his staff provided highly detailed post-op instructions for pain management. It was uncomfortable for a few days and I was never in severe pain, which was really amazing. Great job.
