I have been a patient at this dental office for a almost 3 years. I am really pleased with their professionalism and patient care. They do everything with the comfort of the patient in mind. With them, I know I'm in good hands.

Dr. Igal Elyassi wanted to perform over $2500 worth of UNNECESSARY work! I was told I needed a deep cleaning, a crown and one filling. The first visit I was put in an office and really given the hard sell for $5000 implants and everything else. I felt like I was buying a car and being pressured to get the under coating. And with the second visit came the bait and switch for the $1350 deep cleaning which I was originally told would be around $150. I also got the strong-arm to quickly make another appointment for the crown and filling to be done. After those two rather odd and dubious visits I knew something just wasn't right with this place so I went back to my trusted dentist of 10 years for a second opinion. She checked me out and told me that I DID NOT need the crown, just a filling and that the other tooth was fine. The deep cleaning was also NOT necessary.\n\nThe up-sell and pressure tactics at Wilshire Smile Studio are pretty clever. They are also very expensive. It cost me over $350 just for the exams and x-rays. My dentist gave me new x-rays, an exam, the filling and cleaning all for LESS than that! I'm so glad I didn't go through with Dr. Elyassi's diagnosis. I saved myself a lot of pain in both my mouth and wallet.\n\nThe Wilshire Smile Studio seems to be in the business of soaking every penny out of either you or your insurance company by perform unnecessary and over priced work.\n\nFYI - I understand why there may be some positive reviews. The place is very slick and the staff seems professional, but it's all smoke and mirrors. If I hadn't got a second opinion, I may have given them a positive review myself. The grand facade and clever ruse almost had me fooled too. I guess I'm just one of the lucky ones that got away clean - well not quite.

I love this place! I found the Wilshire Smile Studio totally by accedent when I called them by mistake!! I was actually calling a friend and dialed the wrong number!. When the person answered the phone, I had a moment of, where am I? ... Reaizing the mistake, the guy who answered the phone started having fun with me and the next thing I know he was asking me if I needed a great dentist... I said I did..Long story short, I was in the office the next day getting a cleaning (I had no cavities by the way!!). I have to say, the Wilshire Smile Studio is like a big family, I never thought I would feel so relaxed going to the dentist! What a good luck moment for me! Happy holidays!! \r\n

I can't believe how bright my teeth are!! I went to the Wilshire Smile Studio on Thursday to have my teeth whitened, I honestly never thought my teeth could look so good. I was in the chair listening to music while they put this thing on my mouth that looked like something from Star Trek.. When they took it off, I rinsed my mouth out and was blown away how my coffee stains had just vanished. I had a similar treatment about three years ago in San Diego, but the results were mixed and my teeth were sensitive. I am going to my sisters wedding next week and I am so happy that my teeth will look as good as my dress!!

I had a great experience at the Wilshire Smile Studio. I had a cracked filling that my previous dentist said would require a root canal to fix. My friend recommended Dr. Elyassi to me for a second opinion. As it turned out, the trip not only saved me money but saved me having a root canal on that tooth. After looking things over Dr. Elyassi said that the tooth DID need a filling, but NOT a root canal. I had some Novacaine and before I new it, I was on my way with a filling and a smile!

I don't like dentists and I never thought I would be talking the time to write a review about one, but Dr. Elyassi is different! From the moment I arrived everyone treated me like I mattered.. I have been through the ringer when it comes to doctors and dentists - and too many don't care about a patient, just the insurance card! I was only getting my teeth cleaned, but I felt that everyone was so focused on me. I didn't have to sit there waiting like my old dentists. He took the time to show me where he was looking inside my mouth with a camera - I have to admit, being a tech geek, that was VERY cool! The Dr. Explained to me what he looks for and what I can do to make sure my teeth and gums stay healthy. I was lucky, it's been over a year since i have been to the dentist and I have a clean bill of health, no cavities!! Thanks!

I had recently joined a Volleyball league that meets every other week. A few of my friends decided to take Friday off and practice at the beach. Long story short, I caught an elbow while going to the net and nearly had my tooth broken in half. My friend who hit me by accident was devastated and a little freaked out. I wasn

I just got my first checkup last week since moving here from Japan. Going to the dentist is a very scary thing for me since I do not have family here. I want to thank Mr. Eric for explaining everything to me and making sure everything went perfectly. I had one small cavity that the doctor fixed it and you could not even tell that it was fixed and most of all, I didn

There are so many dentists in LA but it is very hard to find one who is honest, gentle and does good work. Luckily I found Dr. Poneh who fits the criteria! I was referred to her by a co-worker but was very apprehensive. During my first appointment, I told her that I'm embarrassed about my teeth, haven't been to the dentist in a while and that I'm very phobic. She was EXTREMELY sympathetic, took her time to explain every single procedure that I needed and told me to call her if I had any questions. She even gave me her cell phone #! Needless to say, I made an appointment and had a deep cleaning, several fillings, and a root canal and a crown done.\r\n\r\nEvery visit was very pleasant. She constantly asked me if I was ok while she was working on me and would ask me if I needed a break. I felt absolutely no pain or discomfort after my visits and was very impressed by the esthetic results.\r\n\r\nI am aware that I have an HMO and that I have copays for certain procedures and some are not even covered. I verified the fees for my treatment plan with my insurance company. It's very unrealistic to expect everything to be covered with your insurance, especially if you have an HMO, so people have realistic expectations!!!!!!\r\n\r\n5 stars all the way

From the moment I arrived, the staff made me feel like the number one priority. Dr. Zarabian made me feel relaxed and was very gentle (that is important to me) My crown looks and feels perfect, exactly like the way Dr. Z said it would be. I asked a lot of questions and with a camera that looked like a pen, she showed me the inside of my mouth on a TV screen, explained how and why the crown works and how it's installed. I actually thought it was kind of cool! I don't think I could ever be a dentist, but I feel so much more relaxed knowing what is going on behind the whirling sound of the dentist's drill.\n\n

I am usually not the type of person to write a review, but after my experience with Dr. Elyassi, his staff, their care, and for perfecting my smile, of course; I had to express my gratitude. I've always had a horrifying fear of dentists, and as a result, I neglected my teeth for years. I am seen to be a very responsible person, that usually doesn't procrastinate and knowing that my mouth was in such a horrible condition was a heavy thought in my mind that constantly kept resurfacing, weighing down my mind, and interfering with the quality of my life. I was recommended to Dr. Elyassi through an acquaintance; I called the office and scheduled a consultation. The office is beautiful, clean, up to date with flat screen TV's and has amazing panoramic views of los Angeles surrounding the office. The staff is friendly, efficient, and they express their care in a gently manner. My treatment consisted of many porcelain crowns, and several implants but the effect it has had on my life is beyond what can be put into words. I have gained an enormous amount of respect for Dr. Elyassi due to his level of professionalism and to his ability to change peoples lives as he has done to mine and others I have recommended. I must say, Thank You Dr. Elyassi and I look forward to the years of stress-free and worry-free dentistry I will experience with you.

For years I was uncomfortable to smile. I had root canals, pins and crowns on my front teeth. The crown were bulky and the color was not that natural. After some research and evaluations, I had them replaced by Dr. Elyassi. It was a drastic different. I couldn?t believe it. I feel I am smiling with my own teeth, so natural and it is so me. It was costly, but one of the best investment I?ve ever done on myself.

My last dentist was super nice and very cheap, but her work was so crappy that I?d always need to return to get things fixed (Basically, so she could fix her mistakes). I got tired of her half-assing around with my teeth so I left her. \n\nI am now with Dr. Elyassi and consider him to be my fist ?real dentist? because his work is done right the first time. And, in addition to solving my current dental needs, he?ll forecast potential future problems and nip them in the bud. This results in less pain and less visits. Now, my teeth have a peace of mind. Imo, he's hands down, the undisputed best dentist in LA.

Dr Elyassi is one of the sweetest, professional, kind dentists I've ever met. He has made my once considered a terrifying dental experience to a relaxing and even fun (yes, fun!) one. Everyone in the office is extremely friendly and the office is beautiful. TV's in every room and even a wide selection of dvd's to make your experience more comfortable.Dr Elyassi is the ONLY dentist I will trust my teeth with.

Dr Elyassi made my dental experience great. I always have the worst panic attacks when I think about what might happen at the dentist, but he has taken that fear away completely. Everyone here is super friendly and the office is very beautiful and modern. It definitely will make you change your mind about what going to the dentist as a child was like.

I am not a fan of going to the dentist; it has always made me anxious. Dr. Elyassi was not only pleasant and thoughtful about my fear, he actually helped take that fear away, completely. Having gone to him for a couple years now, I can honestly say that I no longer dread going to the dentist. It no longer instills fear and rather, I look forward to being at his office because of the staff's friendliness - they go above and beyond to make me feel as comfortable as possible, and their work is the absolute BEST! \n\nDr. E is, without a doubt, the best dentist i've ever been to, and i can't imagine ever going anywhere else. And none of that is even mentioning the beautiful view from the office and and movies you get to watch while sitting in the chair.\n\nSimply put, I highly recommend Dr Igal Elyassi!

I live between Los Angeles and San Francisco and travel almost 4 days a week for a large part of the year. In my line of work I need someone who treats me like a valued patient, not like an insurance card. I was the victim of several dentists before I met Dr. Elyassi and each time I couldn't believe the runaround I was put through. Dr. Elyassi recently did an AMAZING job matching a front tooth that I broke playing hockey. The entire procedure was painless, VERY affordable and the tooth was a perfect match! I have recommended Dr. Elyassi to many satisfied friends and I was reminded how great his work was when I caught an elbow in the mouth today playing basketball, I am happy to say that the tooth held up perfectly and yes, I will remember to wear the mouthgard he made me from now on!!!

Dr. Elyassi and his staff are completely professional, friendly and very interested in your well being. No waiting, not runaround and no selling!

Dr. Elyassi made me feel comfortable and relaxed; this is certainly a change for me since I have always been afraid of the dentist!\n\nDr. Elyassi is honest, friendly and very caring, I highly recommend him to be anyone?s dentist.\n

Dr. Elyassi sat with me and explained every piece of equipment and how it would be used. Dr. Elyassi made me feel comfortable and relaxed; this is certainly a change for me since I have always been afraid of the dentist!\n\nDr. Elyassi is honest, friendly and very caring, I highly recommend him to be anyone?s dentist.\n

.

I was told my old dentist that I needed two crowns and a filling. A friend of mine suggested that I head over to the Wilshire Smile Studio and get a second opinion. I was AMAZED when Dr. Elyassi told me that I didn?t need either of the crowns, in fact, all I needed was ONE filling! I get freaked about going to the dentist and Dr. Elyassi took the time to sit with me and explain everything in a way that made me feel relaxed. I have to say, it?s nice to finally have a dentist that I can trust, a dentist who actually cares about his patients.

I work as a radio and TV host based in Los Angeles. As you can imagine, my smile is a very important part of my job. I was referred to Dr. Elyassi by a co-worker after sharing a rather horrible story of being tossed around a few Beverly Hills dentists who care very little about the patient and everything about making money. I lost a lot of money and a lot of sleep until I met Dr. Elyassi. My former dentists would send me around to other dentist friends for consultations at a cost that I am embarrassed to mention. I would have certainly felt better if these ?specialists? spent more than two minutes looking at my mouth. To put things in the proper perspective, I was getting a root canal, not a triple bypass! Dr. Elyassi did a complete evaluation, explaining the entire process each step of the way. After my evaluation, Dr. Elyassi sat with me and discussed my dental needs and the steps we could take to make everything better. I have had 4 crowns and one implant by other dentists; it?s safe to say that I have a lot of experience with these procedures. Without the slightest bit of exaggeration, I nearly fell asleep during my procedure with Dr. Elyassi.\n\nBefore I met Dr Elyassi, I had four crowns that fell apart or popped out. My crowns never really felt like they were placed correctly. My crowns were tight and had an uneven feeling and an unnatural margin that was either too tight or too wide and would trap food.When Dr. Elyassi finished my procedure, my crown fit on the first placement perfectly. Dr. Elyassi didn?t have to take it out 10 times to grind it down; it fit perfectly, not tight, not too ?high?, perfectly.\n\nI highly recommend my new dentist, Dr. Elyassi, He is a truly amazing doctor and a new friend.\n\nClarence Barnes\n\n

Pros: the most caring and professional dentists ever!!

Cons: congested parking

I have have always been somewhat of a dental ""chicken"" and used to dread going to the dentist. However Dr. Elyassi and his staff we're more than comforting and made my teeth look great! My girlfriend still comments on howwhite my teeth look. The office is amazing and the staff bends over backwards. I can now look forward to going to the Dentist.

I've been to many dentist offices in my day and it doesn't get any better than this place. Dr. ""Igal"" Elyassi is very friendly, easy going and knowledgeable - he's a premiere dentist. His office staff consists of kind people, many of whom have been there for many years, so they get to know you and your teeth. Several months ago, I received lumineers on my front four, top teeth. I was more comfortable with them then veneers because they didn't require my existing teeth to be sanded down in any way. My lumineers have drastically improved my smile. I've pretty much gotten most of the dental services that they have to offer, including teeth fillings, x-rays, lumineers and laser teeth whitening. I give high grades on all of them.

Pros: Office location, equipment technology, friendly staff

No one likes going to the dentist - but the staff at Wilshire Smile Studio are so caring, gentle, and efficient that my opinion of dental exams is changing! As a new patient of theirs, they have made every effort to make me comfortable and set my mind at ease. They are ready and willing to work with your schedule and financial situation to get the job done as quickly and painlessly (physically and emotionally) as possible. I intend on being their patient for a very long time.

I am sooo glad that I have found Dr. Elyassi. I have been a patient of Dr. Elyassi for over 8 years now. He is one hell of a dentist that I would not doubt or second guess. He is very knowledgeable, truly cares about his patients, and actually takes his time with his patients--he is very thorough. His staff is well trained and very skilled which I particularly find an important piece of information that people in general leave out when trying to refer a doctor to someone. \r\nOverall, I am very satisfied with the dental care I have received at Wilshire Smile Studio since becoming a patient there. With such care, state of the art dental equipment and technology alongside with fabulous view of greater Los Angeles from Dr. Elyassi's office, I would not want to go to any other place for my dental work.

First, let me tell you I am NOT a satisfied customer. I had a pleasant cleaning on my first visit. I used my Aetna insurance. I was told I had several cavities. Which I was not surprised! Anyway, I had called my Aetna before hand and knew what I was covered for, and cavities were 100% covered - for the silver ones (amalgam) and if they DID NOT use the silver fillings then the enamel filling were 100% covered!! WELL, this is where the problem started. I asked the dentist, DR. SHEILA MORIM and she stated that they absolutely do not use the silver fillings; they use the enamel colored (composite resin) fillings as the silver is old and outdated (and ?unsafe? as she put it). After my cleaning when I went to check out and make an apt. for the cavities I was told by the receptionist that they DO offer the silver fillings but they would have to order the material, so they would call me within TWO weeks. One month went by and I called to check-up. They would not see me unless I got the enamel colored fillings. (At a charge of $650 - whereas the silver fillings are 100% covered). \r\nThe rude receptionist (if you go to the office, you will know which one she is, TRUST ME!) also informed me in a threatening tone that maybe I should not return to that office unless I wanted the enamel fillings.\r\nI called my insurance company, and told them this whole long story and they called the dental office (while I was on hold) to see if they do or do not offer the silver fillings. (This is where it gets good) A different receptionist answered and told the insurance rep that the office absolutely DOES NOT offer the silver fillings (therefore, the enamel should be covered 100% per contract). The rep then said that DR. PUNAI got on the phone and said they DO do the silver but would have to drill deep in the tooth to apply filling. HOW UNPROFESSIONAL AND INCONSISTENT!!! \r\nMy insurance company is now filling out a complaint!!! WAY TO GO WILSHIRE DENTAL\r\n

Pros: UNLESS YOU WANT TO GET SCAMMED BY A RUDE OFFICE STAFF DO NOT GO

Cons: EVERYTHING.

My business associates told me all about the famous Dr. Elyassi, his staff, and his great services. My first visit to this office was amazing. I walked in to the office and was greeted with smiles and very kind staff. As I was waiting I watched the patients walking in and the way they acted with the staff. The staff new the patients by name and one of the staff mareesha even walked out from behind the desk and talked with a patient. I found this office to be very friendly, efficient, and very educational. The Doctors were all great, the office team was happy, laughing, and the patients as they left would hug the hygienist (shara is great). That was cool. I walked out paying a little more than I would of liked, however who really wants to spend money on teeth. I would refer this office to all of my friends, family, and coworkers. Be prepared to hear the TRUTH about your health, teeth, and be prepared to be educated. All offices struggle to keep up with patients, however this office is by far the best I have ever seen. Dr. elyassi YOU ROCK...........

I found out about the Wilshire Smile Studio through my insurance. I have to say this is the best dental experience of my life. First of all everyone in the office is friendly, accommodating and professional. From the nice guy that took the x-rays to all of the Dental Assistants, Hygienist, Office Manager, Consultants and Doctors, I was very pleased with all of the procedures and helpful people working there. I had a deep cleaning with Shara and she did a great job and it was virtually pain free. Apparently this was supposed to be a fairly uncomfortable procedure...I also had a crown done and the Prosthidontist (spelling?) did a great job. That procedure was also virtually pain free. They also gave me massages b/w procedures.....how great is that! Eric was also always checking on me to make sure I was comfortable. Lastly, I had the Brite Smile done. My grill looks and feels great! Actually, the Brite Smile was probably the most uncomfortable procedure I had done at the office. It wasn't bad and the results were fantastic! Well worth the $300 special they offered. I go in two more times next week and looking forward to seeing everyone again...plus I get to meet the famous Dr. Elyassi. Cool! This is a great office with great people!

Cons: NONE!

I found this office through my dental insurance. Inside the waiting area are pictures of the doctor with celebrities patients including Kobe Bryant, Tia Carrera, to name a few. Anyway, after initial x-rays, they develop a treatment plan and discuss procedures that will be done and how much they'll cost. They offer different types of treatment depending on how much you're willing to spend and what your insurance will cover. The dental assistants and doctors here are patient, caring and explain everything that will be done.\r\n\r\nThey provide informative videos on oral care and have DVDs for you to watch DURING your procedures. I've been to a few dental offices in L.A. and this is definitely better than all of them. During a procedure the doctors make sure you're pain-free and constantly as if you're OK. BTW, there's valet parking for $10 max. Heads up: the office doesn't validate.
