Dr. Feist is the best dentist there is, hands down! She cares so much, is extremely knowledgeable, always up-to-date on the latest technology, medicine and what is best for the patient. She is patient first--always!!! That is so important when it comes to dental care! I really appreciate how ultra-conservative she is with treatment. I have been a patient for almost a decade, and will never see anyone else. THANK YOU, Dr. Feist!!!!!! There is nobody better than YOU!!

Dr. Face is excellent. He really takes time to do an excellent job and make good decisions for the long-term health of his patients. He also explains everything in detail so you understand the options and why he is suggesting a given choice.

A childhood filling had compromised the structure of a bottom molar causing a major fracture that went below the gum line. Dr. Face said he would do all he could to save the tooth and, indeed, he did just that. He is extremely astute and has great dexterity which is important for intricate dental work. The procedure was absolutely painless and turned out to be one of the most pleasant experiences I have had at the dentist. He is clearly passionate about his work. I would also like to mention Jennifer, the dental assistant, who did a great job creating the porcelain crown (in office, same day) which "fit like a glove." A big thank you to both of them.

 I had a such pleasant experience at Santa Monica Bay Dental. The team was extremely welcoming and courteous. Dr.Shafi was wonderful, very gentle and yet, very thorough with her examination and explanation. I appreciate that. I left the office very confident and satisfied, returning soon for a full treatment. Thanks SMBay
