As the son of a highly respected dentist from Portland, Oregon, I have lived in the South Bay for 6 years. Having been under my father's dental care for over 30 years, I was highly apprehensive about finding a dentist in California. Through coworkers referrals, I finally settled on a dentist and became a patient for about 4 years. Throughout this time, I always had a feeling that this dentist was getting his patients in and out of his office as quickly as possible, like the Jiffy Lube of dental care, and after a history of being seated an average of 45 minutes after my scheduled appointment times, I had had it. Asking around for a second time to my friends for referrals to a good dentist, I got a glowing review from one friend who had been a patient of Dr. Gillespie's for over 20 years. She didn't hesitate for a second to give a glowing review of the excellence of his work and his staff, and I immediately warmed up to the idea of giving his practice a try.
My first appointment and consultation with Dr. Gillespie confirmed that indeed I had made the best decision on taking my friend's referral. He is every bit of the perfectionist and skilled dental artisan as my father. In less than 2 years, he has taken my teeth and oral health to a whole other level. Four years with a mediocre dentist had not fared well with my mouth.
I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Gillespie and his highly-trained staff. Excellence abounds in this practice. He isn't out to sell you on a bunch of procedures and work you could do without, and he gives his honest opinion about everything concerning your oral health. I have never waited more than 5 minutes to be seated for an appointment, and I have never had the feeling that I was being rushed out of the chair so that other patients could be seen. If my appointment called for an unforeseen additional 30 minutes of his time, he makes the time to get the job done right. He comes from a dying breed of dentists who actually love what they do, and have a passion for perfection and giving the best possible care to each of his patients.
At the very least, I would urge those of you considering a new dentist to give Dr. Gillespie's dental practice a try. I am confident that in your initial consultation alone, you will become a devoted patient and wonder if you could possibly find a better dentist in Los Angeles County.

I have been a patient of Dr. Gillespie's for 20+ years (since he started practicing) and would never consider letting another dentist touch my mouth. I've had numerous crowns, including my upper front teeth, and the compliments I receive on my smile never end--no one can tell I have crowns! He is a perfectionist in the most positive sense of the word and never lets me leave until everything is perfect (often at his own expense). He has the highest standards both personally and professionally, and I recommend him without hesitation. Friends who have taken my recommendation have thanked me for the referral and become regular patients. His dental assistants are not only highly skilled professionals but also kind, caring, and attentive. They do everything from covering me with a warm blanket to holding my hand when I get a shot (I'm very needle phobic despite the nitrous oxide). The front office staff is excellent and handle my insurance claims quickly and accurately, and they never fail to call to remind me of my appointments--a practice many dentists no longer provide. The hygienists are excellent and always on time, as is Dr. Gillespie. He has the latest equipment and both he and his staff are well-trained and experienced in using it. Laser technology is also an option, which means no shot and no numb mouth--you can go right to work or out to dinner! You can even select a movie to watch while you are in the chair, which is really nice for children or if you have a long procedure. Most people dread going to the dentist, but I promise you will not if you are going to see Dr. Gillespie. You will leave feeling happy that you are getting the best dental care available.

I am a MAJOR dental chicken - and the only reason I am able to stay on top of my dental health is because of Dr. Gillespie and his fabulous staff. From the minute I walked into his office over 20 years ago - they made me feel respected, and secure. Dr. G is a perfectionist - and I trust him to assist me in making the best decisions. He expects perfection from his staff...and they deliver. They do not make you feel silly for being scared and take great care of all their patients. They have very modern equipment and the office is clean and efficient. They will also work with your busy schedule. Highly recommended.

The employees that set up the appointments are borderline mentally diabled. I was attempting to set up an appt for my daughter and the lady on the other end of the phone asked me the same questions over and over, put me on hold 3 times, did not speak english very well at all and when I faxed over my insurance card and address, requested in order to setup and appt, they called me back 1 day before the appt and told me it was cancelled since they never received the text. Here's an idea, maybe call and ask if I sent it, could resend it if they did not get it or offer an alternative but nope. Just "We have to cancel your appt. because we never got your fax". Horrible customer service. Sad thing is I pay a good amount of money for my PPO Insurance which pays docs and dentists well so they lost out. I would not go here if they paid me and you should stay clear as well. It's all about the $$$ or they would of been fine with me showing up and giving them my info on site or like I said, offer me an alternative instead of just cancelling.

Very rude staff, Uninformed staff. Waited one hour and twenty minutes without an explanation. Did not receive a cost for the needed procedure{ implanted tooth fell-out) totally unacceptable as the next dentist did the procedure upon the same appointment visit.

the dentist is als extremely combative on the telephone and most unprofessional with telephone etiquette.

Dr. Gillespie and his staff are the best! I've been a patient there since I had baby teeth...that's over 20 years. My dental health is the best, and I've never left in any pain.

Dr Gillespie is a great dentist. You can be assured if he does a procedure it is the best. I would never put my trust in anyone else.

I started going to Dr. Gillespie in the fall of 2007 after having had poor care at an HMO dentist. What a difference. The staff is highly trained and motivated from the dental hygenist right up the line to Dr. G. They have the latest technology, are agressive in preventative dentistry, and offer high quality dentistry. Dr. Gillespie is very particular in getting things "right" not just OK and I've had him actually send back a crown because it did not fit to his satisfaction (at no cost to me). I wouln not have known the difference but he just wouldn't compromise. You get a comprehensive cost for any procedure and a detailed explanation of the alternatives so you can make an informed decision.

Excellent dentist, highly skilled staff and friendly too.
