Simply put, Dr. Carlston & his team are THE people to see if you have fears or phobias of going to the dentist! They are gentle, kind, accommodating and will explain everything in effective detail. I’ve never felt pressured into any procedure and I always feel like they listen to my concerns, which is a rarity in the medical/dental field these days!

I first saw Dr. Carlston in 2008 after a friend referred me to his office when I didn’t have insurance. They worked with my financial limitations and took the best care of me. I’ve been seeing them now for the last decade and I can’t imagine having anyone else take care of my teeth.

Dr Carlston is the most personable dentist I've know and I've seen over a dozen in six states. He takes interest in patients, and treats each person like they are his most important patient. It would hard to find a dentist with more experience. Even though I'm moving out of state, I'll still come back to see him as necessary.

When I called 1-800-dentist to find a dentist I spoke with a representative who immediately began to rave @ The Carlston group dental office. My visit more than superseded my expectations. She assured me that this dentist was "IT". Everyone in the office was courteous and helpful. Dr. Carlston was not only frank, honest and thorough, but funny as well. He made me feel so comfortable. He explained every detail. My hope is to return and receive the service he recommended.

When I was looking for a reliable dentist that could help me with a payment plan, my friend referred Dr. Carlston and his team in West LA. I hadn't seen a dentist in years and as soon as I got in we were off and running. I had my teeth cleaned and several cavities filled and I couldn't have been happier with the work. Now my teeth and gums are in the best shape they've been in in years. I just had a cleaning the other day and things are looking great. Thanks Dr. Carlston!

StarStarStarStarStar  —    (Patient since 2014)

Dr. Carlston and his team are the absolute best! If you're looking for quality work and fair pricing I wouldn't consider going anywhere else in the LA area. I visit the office regularly for everything from InVisalign orthodontia, restorations, cosmetic work, to routine checkups. Every time I visit the experience gets better and better.

I was absolutely scared! I haven't been to the dentist in years but while eating a salad,and feeling a sharp pain in my jaw,I knew I had to just go. When I walked in,I was greeted by the very kind receptionist, sat down and felt a lil st ease. The office is beautifully decorated with comfortable chairs. The dental assistant who took me in was very gentle. The dentist,spoke easily to me,talked me through the extraction procedure and the tooth was out in no time,and I didn't feel a thing! Definitely going back here!

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Carlston since 2011 and couldn’t be more pleased. He’s engaging, knowledgeable and meticulous in his work. Those are all the things you want in a good doctor. My hygienist, Gita, is equally professional and detailed. All around wonderful service and relationship.


StarStarStarStarStar A+++ Go see Dr. Carlston! —    (Patient since 2018)

As a dental-phobe, I cannot say enough about Dr. Carlston and his staff. From the moment I walked in, I was welcomed with kindness and patience. The location is uniquely beautiful and clean. Stella was excellent in taking my x-rays and made me feel very calm before my extraction. Dr. Carlston and his assistant explained the procedure thoroughly and they both answered all my questions. I had a sense of trust that they knew exactly what they were doing. They also had a solid game plan for my future visits that didn't involve unnecessary treatment which I also appreciated. The procedure itself was as painless as could possibly be, and I am a very fragile case. I would highly recommend visiting Carlston Dental Group!

I would not dream of going anywhere else. After my very first visit with Dr. Carlson, I felt that up until that date I had been going to dentists that did not care about my teeth or my health, only their wallet. Dr. Carlston treats you like family and only wants what’s best for you. I would definitely recommend anyone to give him just the one visit and they like me will be convinced from the get go!

StarStarStarStarStar Not your regular Dentist office —    (Patient since 2011)

Most people avoid going to the dentist because they associate it with waiting around and worse, the possible pain that comes with the visit. Believe me when I say I used to be one of those people until I went to Dr. Carlston. The atmosphere is always great, very friendly from the receptionist, to Marc The office manager all the way up to Dr. Carlston himself. I don't know what type of technique he uses but I never feel pain when I see him. They take such good care of me that I don't need to go in as often as I needed to. They make me feel like family. I love this place. Thank you for all you do.

StarStarStarStarStar Made Me Smile (Literally) —    (Patient since 2017)

My husband and I have different dentists. I recently chipped a tooth (over a weekend!) and was in panic mode since my regular office is closed on Mondays. He suggested that we reach out to Dr. Carlston’s team to see if they may be able to fit me in. I took his advice and they couldn’t have been more accommodating, friendly and efficient. I was thrilled over the painless experience and phenomenal result. And now I have a new dentist.


StarStarStarStarStar Wonderful Dentist and Staff!!!!!! —    (Patient since 2015)

Wonderful Dentist and Staff!!!!!!


StarStarNo StarNo StarNo Star 2.5 hours for a cleaning and check up —    (Patient since 2017)

The staff and dentist were friendly. However, I went for a cleaning and x-rays and was there for 2.5 hrs. Most of that time was spent waiting. I waited 40 minutes for my cleaning. Then I waited 30 minutes in an exam room for my x-rays. Then I waited some more to see the dentist, who spent 5 minutes with me. No one offered to reschedule or even told me how behind schedule the office was. Since it was my first official visit, I probably will look for a new dentist.

Dr. Carlston is the best dentist I've ever seen! He has a relaxed atmosphere in the office, and I love to hear the piano and classical guitar music playing, that he composed himself.

The receptionist went out of his way to figure out what type of insurance I had, making sure I know what I'll spend. Not many offices do this and I really appreciate it! However, I don't appreciate being sold "invisalign" every 20 minutes or so by everyone, including receptionist, assistant and interns. Its weird: my teeth are not crooked! Weirder still are the invisalign advertisements on walls, and invisalign business men hanging out in denist waiting room.

Dr. Carlston is an absolute professional and he explains every procedure thoroughly. The staff is great, welcoming and courteous from the moment you walk in the door.

StarStarStarStarStar Fortunate to have found Dr. Carlston! —    (Patient since 2011)

I was very fortunate to find Dr. Carlston. I needed extensive dental work from a root canal to dental implants. A project that took 14 months. He gave referrals to specialists from the Endodontist, and Periodontist who provided expert care and to the dental lab who did an amazing job . He was caring and patient while giving me options on procedures and keeping me informed of all the steps it would take to get my care to completion. His office staff is wonderful. I really appreciate all the time he took with me and the special effort to make sure all the dental work turned out perfect.


StarStarStarStarStar Lin  —    (Patient since 2014)

Dr Carlston was honest and to the point regarding my teeth. Plus he listened to me (while others didnt) and immediately took care of my tooth that needed immediate attention. He gave me options and I took his advice. I would definitely recommend him.

I felt very welcome and well taken care of in the hands of Dr. Carlston. I told the staff I have dentist phobia and from the gentle cleaning to the x-ray technician who accommodated my anxiety, I felt at ease. Not to mention this is one of the most beautiful dentist offices I have ever been in. Very warm and professional feeling from all the staff.

Everyone there has always been very kind and honest. They truly are looking out for your best interest and not in the interest of their bank account. If only Dr. Carlston had been my dentist my entire life I think I'd be in a better spot with regard to my teeth!


StarStarStarStarStar Favorite dentist ever. —    (Patient since 2008)

I have been a long-time patient of Dr. Carlston's, and he is by far my favorite dentist ever. He has a wonderful, gentle chairside manner; clearly explains dental problems and procedures; and his staff are highly skilled and sensitive. The office is a very warm, inviting, peaceful environment with all the latest dental equipment.

Excellent service. I had an emergency and Dr. Carlson was able to not only fix the problem but give me options for other treatment.


StarStarStarStarStar Another Great Cleaning —    (Patient since 2012)

Another great visit to Dr. Carlston's office! I actually had a later appointment that day and a I called to see if they could squeeze me in earlier and they did. Such a nice group of people over there. I always recommend friends to Dr. Carlston.


StarStarStarStarStar Excellent Service —    (Patient since 2016)

My words cannot fully express how I felt after my very first dental appointment with Dr. Carlston. The staff and Dr. Carlston well beyond exceeded my expectation of service. Everyone was warm and inviting and made me feel like I was the most important person in the room; however, I wasn't singled out as I noticed that treatment with all their patients. I felt that way not only in the waiting area, but during my visit with Dr. Carlston and the two dental assistants I was working with while getting my x-rays and my teeth cleaned. I honestly do not remember the last time a dentist sat with me for a good amount of time to discuss the issues occurring, treatment options, a timeframe to handle the issues, and discuss any questions or concerns I have. I truly felt he really listened and actually talked through my questions and concerns. I appreciate that! I believe I finally found a dentist/dental office that I can foresee a long lasting relationship with and that alone gives me a peace of mind.


StarStarStarStarStar BEST of the best —    (Patient since 2013)

I hate telling people about Dr. Dean L. Carlston's office because I'm afraid that the word will get out about how god they really are & I won't be able to get an appointment. Or newcomers will ruin the easy, friendly vibe of the office. Unless I move out-of-state, I don't plan on going anywhere else for my dental care...actually if I do move out-of-state I still might fly back just for cleanings. Stephan.

StarStarStarStarStar The Rolls Royce of Dental Offices —    (Patient since 2014)

I rarely rate any business as Excellent, however this dental office is an exception. I value the "dental experience" from beginning to end. Every person that you encounter is professional, helpful and makes you feel valued. Equipment is state of the art, office and courtyard area are absolutely pristine. Dr. Carlston is absolutely the best- This office is not concerned about making a buck, as much as providing excellent service.

I showed up the minute they opened without an appointment, they had x-rays taken of my problem even though Dr. Carlston had yet arrived. He did later that morning, reviewed them and saw my as his last patient of the day so he could spend as much time as necessary with me. Now that's service.

The waiting time was long and although I was informed during the process maybe there could have been another way of handling it like giving me a real idea that you are running an hour behind because I moved another appointment 2 times then canceled It when I got of the office at 4:30 & came in at 1pm, I am glad that DR. Didn't rush through my apt & explained his previous apt. Your staff also told me you were short handed. It's really food for thought! Overall, I'm pleased !

I was recommended to Dr. Carlstons by 1-800 Dentist. He made my experience as painless as possible and also gave many other tips to help me with my 'Teeth situation'. He and his team have been completely wonderful, always helpful and understanding. And the best part was even though I have insurance, it didn't cover everything and the office helped me with making payment plans directly to them! I highly recommend this office and staff!
