I have been without dental insurance for nearly two years. I finally got some (through work) Torrance Dental Arts was on the HMO list. Also close to my house, so I wne tthere. Very hi-tech, but super nice folks. I had to wait a little longer than I would have liked, but when the Dr. finally came in, I felt it was well worth the wait. I got more information than i have from other dentissts, and nobody pushed for money. You go from the chair to someone's office, so I was expecting a long forceful sales pitch. One of the ladies simply explainied a few procedures I had questions on, talked about taking my time in getting the work donme, and to do it at my own pace. All good to me. Prices were a little high, but I have friends who have paid more. I would recommend this place for sure, but be prepared to wait a little in the waiting room, but it may be well worth it. I had to Mapquest the location.
