I have been going to Sawtelle Dental regularly for 5+ years now and have nothing but great things to say about Dr. Silvera's work. I've needed referrals to specialists for dental surgery and adult orthodontia ... in both cases Dr. Silvera helped me find other great, caring professionals. I had a friend who was in agony from a bad tooth (which he'd ignored for far too long) and although he wasn't a patient, Dr. Silvera's staff called him at my request and was able to quickly fit him into the schedule and get him out of pain! I've been very happy with the entire staff, assistants, front desk, etc. Highly recommend!

Pros: good dentist, caring, genuinely wants to help

Cons: none (ok, maybe the fact that there's a donut shop next door!)

I have been going to Dr. Silvera for almost two years now. He and his staff are top notch. They are genuinely nice, very committed to giving excellent dental care and very Accommodating with appointments and resceduleing. Dr. Silvera and his staff were highly recommend to me, now I highly recommend them to others.

How this dentist sleeps at night is beyond me. The worst part is I came here at the referral of a friend. Come here if you want to spend money you don't have to on painful procedures like root canals that you don't need.

I went in because I had a tooth hurting. They took x-rays, which they said would be $35. I ended up being charged for 2 x-rays on the exact same teeth for $54. He did nothing to the tooth that was hurting and suggested I needed a root canal, removed an amalgum filling and put in a clear one (which I did not need and this tooth was not hurting) at $203 and then after doing a filling that didn't even need replacing told me I had a cavity in another tooth. I left in more pain than before I came in. I immediately got a second opinon who was a true Savior and an honest dentist. I was beginning to think none existed.

Turns out my gum was receding on one of those teeth and that was what was causing all the pain. The amazing and honest dentist I went to Joshua Tanz said that the tooth showed no signs of needing a root canal. He put a sealant on my gum and two hours later, I felt no pain. I've felt amazing for the past week.

This dentist did hand over my x-rays as they made a thousand excuses and backtracked on their diagnosis when they realized I was going to get a second opinion. I was absolutely ripped off for $257 by them switching a filling that I didn't even need, but thank God I had the sense to get a second opinion. Stay away from this dentist. He's just one more dishonest person in LA trying to rip people off for work they don't need. And even worse, I came to him in excruciating pain ... no conscience at all. It's sickening.

Cons: RIP OFF, DISHONEST, TOLD ME I NEEDED A ROOT CANAL WHEN I DIDN'T, FIXED TOOTH THAT HAD NOTHING WRONG WITH IT

Dr. Silveria recommended that I have several costly procedures performed including several crowns and the retouching of older worker. A second opinion from a more experienced dentist with a prolific practice confirmed what I thought to be true all along- that most of these suggestions where unnecessary. My suggestion is that you remain very wary of professionals trying to build their fledgling or monetarily strapped practices you, like me, may be coaxed into having unnecessary worked performed. Beware!
