This dentist was young and cool. The most down to earth dentist I've visited yet. I can say this will be my new dentist anytime I'm in town. Aside from good looking gals they were also very helpful. The process was in and out. No issues here. It was very clean. I did not see any partitioners. The gal at the front desk even gave me a coupon to help me save money. More gas money for me YAY!!!

What a wonderful place! I heard about this place through a family friend. When I came in I was surprisingly pleased! Since I regularly use yelp, I was reading the ratings for this place and it seemed like Satan's quarters; however, that is far from the truth. The one-star rating Marina Dental Center average does not remotely resemble how it actually is. The people are wonderful, and you are dealt with almost immediately. And Dr. Ginzburg is amazing! He is so quick yet does a flawless job. The dentist experience isn't as bad when you are with him. He makes the process very fast so you endure the least pain. Five-star no doubt.

Dr. Michael Homayun is negligent/incompetent and unethical. He did an implant, Endosseous in bone and custom post for $2650.00, stating that because I bring in so much business he was giving me a break in price (he originally quoted me $3400.00). I asked him if it would be still the same quality of materials and he said yes! He did not admit that he was going to use cheap/inadequate quality materials and not build the bone graph up to the standard of care required for the implant to be successful. While waiting for the implant to set (takes 4 months or so), I moved out of state. My doctor in Connecticut took x-rays of the implant and was concerned that the implant was not long enough and the bone graph not done enough (not enough bone was built up in the area). When it came time to do the implant crown, my Connecticut doctor had a difficult time finding the right hardware materials to do the implant crown because Dr. Homayun used very unusual implant materials. My doctor did get the proper materials for the implant crown and the day he was putting in the implant crown hardware the implant hardware Dr. Homayun put it came out. My doctor showed the hardware Dr. Homayun used to some of his colleagues who all agreed that the materials Dr. Homayun used were inproper. I contacted Dr. Homayun and he said he would give me a refund, less materials, which I agreed to. Dr. Homayun asked that my Connecticut doctor send him the x-rays and report of what happened, which I he did. Since then, Dr. Homayun has not replied to my emails, nor returned my calls. He is not a man of his word, he performs substandard dentistry work and ripped me off. DO NOT TRUST THAT DOCTOR'S OFFICE AND DR. HOMAYUN. I HAVE READ AWFUL THINGS ABOUT THAT OFFICE SINCE MY EXPERIENCE. WHEN IT CAME DOWN TO IT, DR. HOMAYUN DID NTO WANT TO REFUND ME.

The staff is wonderful, they treated me like family. The front office staff was able to help me get all of the dental work I needed covered by my insurance. I have never seen an office go so far out of there way to help people. After seeing neg. reviews I hesitated. I am so happy I did not listen to a couple of unhappy people. I would reccomend this office to all my friends and co-workers.

My dentist was Dean Salo. He explains everything thoroughly to his patients. The waiting room has a marble floor and is quite cozy. He even has one of those headsets that plays movies as you're getting your cavities filled.

Dr. Salo has been my dentist for years, when I went to MDC, I was told he is no longer part of the practice after a bit of a search I located him in his new Wilshire office. The office is super modern and professional. I ended up needing an implant, and the process was both affordable and smooth. They have Cat scan, cool surgical suite with movies and music and I was given some sedation so my chickenyyy self had a smooth sail.

ALL I CAN SAY IS:::STOPPPP - DO NOT GO HERE!!!! If you have already, go and get a 2nd, 3rd opinion!! So much has happened between both of Ginzburg's offices...really too much for me to write for sure. Put it this way, I have had major drama going on with them since MARCH 2008 and they will not get away with it!! They have had many chances and I am now taking official action against them! I wish I was able to contact you folks for a big case but citysearch doesn't give us that option.

Btw, I investigated deeper and this office has a 'F' Rating on the LABBB website. His LA Dental office has a 'D' Rating! Also, he was issued a citation through the Dental Board of California. AND, he is not a member of any of the local dental associations!! SOUNDS SCANDOLOUS TO ME!!

ABSOLUTELY REDICULOUS.....I DON'T HAVE WORDS ANYMORE!!!

I had a bad experience at this dentist and have to pass it on in hopes of saving other people from the same bad experience. I came in for a scheduled cleaning, and was told I had to have my crown completely redone. They showed me the x-ray, and it did need to be replaced. The doctor came in, NEVER introduced himself, so I have no clue who he was (nor did ANY of the hygienests for that matter). He decided what they were going to do, and told me. Then, came the prices. Well, I have never seen prices this high at a dentist. Apparently, they charge insane amounts of money that the insurance companies won't cover, so they can pocket it. I have had lots of dental work done in other cities, and I realize there is a fee, sometimes a lot, but this was ridiculous! I also asked around to my friends what they pay and said it was ridiculous. I went ahead and had it done anyway, b/c I didn't have time to run around finding another dentist, and had to go here d/t my insurance. THEN, they advertised that they have evening and weekend hours, which they still advertise on their voice mail, and then tell me they don't do that. LIARS!! So frustrating, that's half the reason I picked this place, b/c people have jobs and cannot always come between 9 and 5pm!!!!! I am changing my insurance this month to my husbands so I can go to a new dentist. I would not come back here nor ever recommend it to anyone!!!!!!

I don't even want to get started... First of all there should be a class-action suit against these people. They are dishonest, sneaky and unclean. Not only did a get sick from one of their staff who worked on me NOT WEARING A MASK, but they broke my inlay that I had waited for for over 2 months, while I WAS ON THE TABLE. Can't get money back, had to get them to do the procedure anyway. Been back over 5 times, teeth still hurt after 3 months. Been in so much pain.... DO NOT GO HERE!!!! Negative 10 stars if I could. Someone please start a class action suit against these people! OR AT LEAST COMPLAIN TO THE DENTAL BOARD!!! Get their licenses revoked or something.

Pros: One of the front staff schedulers is very nice.... only reason why I went back.

Cons: They Lied about how my inlay broke, stole my money, and got me sick! Always had to wait 30+min

If you like to be treated poorly, taken advantage of, lied to, overcharged and manipulated, then go here. If you want quality service, a friendly staff, a clean environment and, MOST IMPORTANTLY, if you want to ACTUALLY SEE A DENTIST...THEN DO NOT EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER EVER GO HERE. They are liars, cheaters, unhelpful, unfriendly, and I don't think an actual dentist even exists there. I look forward to the day they go out of business, as nobody should be treated the way I was treated. I could not have been more disappointed. They deserve negative stars they are so terrible.

I had an apointment for 1 pm and they took me in at 1.45pm, then I sat in the chair for another 15 minutes. The staff is cluless on customer service. Also, I asked and payed for my X ray 2 months ago, because I want to transfer to a different dentist, and have not received it yet. I called, but still nothing. I was also quoted twice a different price on what my insurance covers. All and all one bad experience after the other. I got a cleaning and I'm not going back.

They saw me one hour later than my appointment only because I got irritated. Recommended $6,000 worth of treatment that I did not need. ( I checked with my old dentist). I only went here because they would take my insurance - and I have complained to them about this group also. Dr Ginsberg never showed up but Dr "K" who never introduced himself "sold" me two new crowns for $2,000. Yes I was under the influence of novocain. It took him 10 shots (not kidding) to numb the area - and it still hurts a week later!! He lets the tech?? do all the temp crown prep and it took her 1 1/2 hours to get a fit - so my mouth could at least close?!! I was there for four hours. It was some of the worst care I have ever gotten!!

First of all you have to make an appointment to see the "doctor" (I use this term loosely in this case), separate from your cleaning, otherwise he will not see you. I did this because I thought after my 3rd visit I should meet my dentist at some point. I had a 4pm apt to see Dr. Ginzburg and a 5pm apt for my cleaning. By 5pm I had still not seen the dr. I had xrays then FINALLY saw the dr 1 1/2 after my scheduled apt. He poked 3 of my teeth with the back end of a tool then disappeared. I had to request for him to return. 20 mins later he finally did. I very calmly expressed that I was disappointed that I had to schedule a specific apt with him, it was 1 1/2 hours late, then he barely saw me. Also, at this point I was 45 mins late for my cleaning and the hygentist was not ready for me. Dr. Ginzburg was EXTREMELY rude to me and obviously speaking from his ego. I finally go to sit with the hygentist for my much awaited cleaning, then the dr returned, told the hygentist NOT to clean my teeth and told me to leave. I was ON TIME for my apt and only expressed my concern about the 2 apts and lateness. He is now trying to bill my insurance, despite the fact that my teeth were NOT cleaned. I have never in my life had such a terrible experience with any type of doctor or professional.

Additionally, the other patients in lobby (also waiting an hour for their apts.) were unhappy. One woman said he was the worst dentist and other reviews of him online were bad. She said she only went to him because he was inexpensive and she didn't have insurance.

The dentist has a dedicated person who just goes from exam room to exam room to try to sell you another procedure that you absolutely "need" and why you should get the upgrade from what your insurance will cover and go with a "better" procedure. First invisalign, then whitening, then gold crowns, then better fillings, on and on.

My dentist was Dean Salo. I overheard that he works at two offices, and the other one charges less for the same procedures. He explains everything thoroughly to his patients. The waiting room has a marble floor and is quite cozy. He even has one of those headsets that plays movies as you're getting your cavities filled. I didn't have dental insurance at the time, so it all seemed pricey.

The waiting room has a marble floor and is quite cozy. He even has one of those headsets that plays movies as you're getting your cavities filled. I didn't have dental insurance at the time, so it all seemed pricey.
