What Some of Our Patients Have Said

Matthew Rangel

I've been going to the Encino Friendly Dental Center since I was around 7 years old, and I've always enjoyed going there. Each member of the office staff has impeccable manners and has consistently excelled in cleaning, running operations, and scheduling. Making Encino Friendly Dental Center your main dentist is a decision you won't regret.

First visit. Everybody was friendly. Jody at the front desk was very helpful. Dr. Kay was thorough and put my Dentist anxieties at ease. Even the X-ray Tech was gentle

Linna Park

Dr. K is simply the BEST. She is so kind, and attentive. She runs a happy practice with a wonderful staff. They are always in a good mood. Jody is great! Always responsive and makes such efforts to accommodate my unreasonable schedule. Dr. K writes personal cards! Who does that anymore? She really does treat her patients like family! But aside from being just the sweetest, she is a phenomenal dentist!! I am endlessly grateful to her and her staff .

Katelyn Gelhart

I want to start out by saying that I have a bit of a fear of the dentist (and most doctors) so when I saw ‘Friendly’ in the name I was slightly hopeful. Every single person on Dr. K’s team was so incredibly kind and helpful (including Jody who’s amazing)! I am just so grateful for the care they put into making my treatment plan not only affordable to my budget but also handled with so much care and respect. Having had really terrible experiences in the past, this is all I was looking for in a dentist. Before becoming a patient here I would have never dreamed of recommending a dentist to friends…but now I tell everyone. I really can’t stress enough that if you are even a little unhappy with your current dentist or are just looking for a dentist in general, this is the place!

Masis Hartonian

It's most professional doctors and beautiful staff. thank you so much for excellent service 👍

Dean Parker

Dr. Karamanian (Dr.K) is the BEST!! She truly cares about her patients. She takes the time to explain and show what the issues are and the recommended treatment plan. She’ll definitely bring back the smile to your face. 😁 7/28/22 - Back for the install of a crown. She cares to insure it is the best fit possible - goes the extra mile so it is “JUST RIGHT” 8/21/23 - Appointment for w/ Dr. K for cleaning and checkup. She continues to go above and above making recommendations on how to improve my gum health and polished up a jagged edge. Best of All, the Cherry-Vanilla flavored polish is Da Bomb!

An outstanding dental practice that deserves the highest praise. Dr. K and Jody have consistently provided us with exceptional care, and their commitment to communication and patient satisfaction is truly remarkable. Our entire family entrusts our dental health to them, and we couldn't be happier with the level of care we receive. One of the aspects that sets them apart is their excellent communication system. Being able to communicate with the dental office via text messages has made our lives so much easier. The convenience of receiving timely reminders, scheduling appointments, and addressing any concerns or questions we have, all through simple text messages, is truly a game-changer. Dr. K and the entire team are responsive and always go above and beyond to ensure our needs are met. Overall, we adore Encino Friendly Dental and cannot recommend them highly enough.

The best dentist ever, the best dental office I have ever been to. Dr. K is just the best, love her and her staff especially Jody, would not go anywhere else, I just had oral surgery yesterday by Dr. Shadi, and I’m already feeling good today, he’s so caring and gentle, thank you so much Dr. Shadi. Dr. Kay is not only adorable but also cares a great deal. Just the best all around. I recommend to try this dental office and you will experience exactly what I’m talking about.

My husband and I love this office. Dr. K and the staff here are very professional and friendly. They treat you like family. We never had to wait for more than 5 mins to be seen. Often times, they are ready waiting for us. We appreciate having such a great dentist in our neighborhood. If you are looking for reliable and friendly dental office, make sure to check Encino Friendly Dental out!

Found the one. Thank goodness for Encino Friendly Dental Center. Dr. Kay and her team are the best. They genuinely care for their patients. They take their time with each patient, they listen to any concerns you have, address all of your questions, and really pay attention to detail. I appreciate how easy it is to deal with them. Everyone at the office is warm, friendly and helpful. So thankful for the recommendation I received from a staff member at my old dental office. Yes, she too goes to Dr. Kay.

Esther Pang

I don't like go to Dentist but this place is different. Dr K and all the staffs are friendly and take good care of you.

Jennifer Velasco

Always a great visit with great people!


I can honestly say that Dr. K and her team are phenomenal. I just moved from out of state and have been going to the same dentist for the past 12 years, so I was super scared and timid to go anywhere else. As soon as I walked into the office my guard went down and I automatically felt secured. I will be coming to EFDC for the remaining time that I will be living here in L.A Thank you!! Jody

Hilda Keshifhminan

Excellent and good.

Azadeh Dori

Can't tell enough about Dt. K and her staff, she is an amazing person and very knowledgeable Dentist. All you get in her office is about patient care .I had an emergency on Sunday she answered my call and kept me calm. They got me in on Monday and cancelled some patients due to my long procedure. I am very satisfied with my result. Highly recommend this amazing Dr.

Courtney Kinney

I cannot express in words how wonderful every experience I have had at Encino Family Dental. The chairside manner is outstanding. I will continue all of my own and my families dental needs with Encino Family Dental. They are like family.

Vahida Kocharyan

Dr. K is amazing! She is so sweet, funny, and knowledgeable. Her check up was so thorough and I love how she explains along the way on what she is seeing in the xrays and takes time to explain everything. I am in my 30s and yet I learned so much by visiting her. She truly does take her time for perfection. She is a one of a kind dentist! Her staff is very friendly too and I was pleasantly surprised when her xray texhnician introduced himself and was so friendly during the process. Such a lovely experience overall!

Lisa Poncino

Great as always... :o)

Mary Reilly

Dr. K has done a phenomenal job on my daughters teeth. We had another dentist who recommended we pull one of them before putting on her braces but Dr K wouldn't give up that easy and she was able to save her tooth. I couldn't be happier with the progress. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Encino Friendly Dental to anyone I know. Thanks to Dr K, Mike, Jody and Valerie for making a trip to the dentist something to look forward to. You're the best!

Jay Jacobs

It is always a great experience going to Dr.K's office. How often can you say that about your dentist?! She always has a smile on her face and makes you feel comfortable on every visit!

This is honestly the best dental center I have ever been to. The entire staff was extremely warm and kind. I've hopped around from dentist to dentist all my life but this dental center is a keeper. Don't even get me started on the hygienist. You'll end up with the warm and fuzzies.

Mandy L.

I went to Dr. K for a routine check up and cleaning, and it was my most pleasant dentist visit ever. Although of course going to the dentist is never fun, Dr. K was very personable, and conducted a very thorough exam. She pointed out things that no other dentist has ever mentioned, and did all the work herself. Her office is very clean and high-tech. After being to four other dentists in the LA area, I have finally found my teeth a happy home! Parking is validated at her office.
