Invisalign pros over here. Dr Gohar, Danni and the whole team are great people who know how to take care of you. They considered all my concerns and feelings to make my experience smooth, informative and fun. I should've done this a long time ago but better late than never. I'm sooo happy that Invisalign exists. I would never get braces but I literally can't even see these clear aligners. Can't wait to finally have a nice smile and show some teeth in my pictures.

The staff were wonderful and accommodating. Easy to talk to and it is apparent they are real masters of their craft. Dr. Hovsepyan is the best dentist I have ever encountered. She really takes the time to educate and go through the plan of care. Her handiwork left me with a great smile and it was quick & painless Thank you for the great service!

I can’t say enough good things, I have been a patient here for over 5 years. Dr. Gohar is the best dentist and so knowledgeable, honest and kind. I finally did Invisalign with viva smile and my smile is priceless. Her staff is also amazing, Dani has always been so attentive and a ray of sunshine. I recommend them to everyone.

I was trying to avoid dentist as much as I can cuz I usually have a hard time during and after my dentist appointments. I found Viva smile and like you right now I went through the comments section to see people impressions. After that I scheduled an appointment and the process went so smooth and fast. I had Dr Gohor as my dentist with her team and they were amazing. The technology is on another level so you don’t have to wait long. I felt that I’m in a safe hand. The energy is great and they are super friendly. They explain everything to me and what are they gonna do which is great!I left happy and I’ll definitely make Viva smile my primary dentist clinic

Dr. Gohar, Dani, Nellie and Joey all made my experience easier than anticipated. They made me feel comfortable and explained all the procedures thoroughly. They were all very patient with my anxiety and my teeth felt sooo clean afterwards. I had a deep cleaning, a filling and a crown done and was able to go straight to work without feeling any after pain.

Dr. Hovsepyan and her entire staff are incredible! They are so kind, welcoming, efficient, and transparent. They make regular cleanings such a breeze, and I also had a fantastic experience doing Invisalign treatments with them. Even the smaller details like the clean rooms, advanced equipment, and ample parking are a big plus. I can’t recommend Viva Smile highly enough! Best team around!

I have been coming to Dr. Hovsepyan for about 2 years. I switched over after having enough trauma from my previous dentist. I had developed a huge fear of going to the dentist, but Dr. Hovsepyan and her wonderful staff changed all that. I love that I can come to her office for general dental work and ortho! Her staff are very clear about what you owe, what your insurance does and doesn’t cover. Dr. Hovsepyan shows exactly what’s wrong your teeth, listens to you, and doesn’t pressure you into anything. Complete transparency! Dr. Hovsepyan and her entire staff are amazing.

Great communication and friendly staff. I missed my initial appt due to work and with some luck they were able to fit me in later in the day at no extra charge thanks to a cancellation. 10/10 on customer satisfaction and 10/10 on services!

I love it here. I came a few years ago (3 yrs) after a botched root canal at another establishment. The women at Viva Smile really took and take care of me. The concierge is always so kind and inviting. The dentists are so warm and they do not try to up sell you every chance they get. They let you know what insurance will or won’t cover and always try to stay within your coverage. Honestly, I have not had one negative moment or experience here and it’s such a relief and a joy to have them.

I’m a new patient at viva smile and after years of having a big phobia of dentists they have laid those fears to rest. The Dr is very gentle and she truly cares about the patients care and experience as well as the staff. Everyone is super nice and always very welcoming. I appreciate the good ambience.

I have been with Dr. Hovsepyan for nearly two decades. She is honest and treats her patients with dignity without having the need to create work that “needs” to be done. Everyone working there- from the front office to the back, is happy and welcoming. The hygienist who patiently cleans and shines my teeth is the gentlest person I know. I am super sensitive to the sounds and feel of the tools used at the dental office. Yet she patiently takes her time to make sure I am comfortable, sometimes even trying to distract me.Thank you for your impeccable service.

I’ve got to say that this experience has been one that I never knew existed. I’ve always had in the past dentists who caused more pain than I went in with. They always want to tell you everything that is wrong with your teeth and it becomes so overwhelming. I went in for a filling that fell out. When I went in to see my new dentist she advised me my tooth was cracked too. Thought my tooth was a goner. Happy to say she was able to crown it (temp for now) and didn’t overwhelm me with all the other issues I have. Her touch was gentle and quick. I appreciate her and her staff. I can see they enjoy what they do without feeling like everyone was judging you. Thank you for making my unpleasant issue be not so unpleasant.

Best dental office ever! I am a new client at this office and I am so happy I have found a great team. I walked in and was greeted by friendly staff and smiling faces. The office is nicely decorated and clean. I was informed of prices in terms I understood with no hidden fees. The staff is knowledgeable and everyone seems to support and work well together as team. I have received multiple dental work including crowns and cleanings. The work was well done, not rushed, and I was walked through all the steps they were taking. I am a very happy and satisfied client.

I thought I had a good dentist before, until my wife insisted I switch to Viva Smile! I have been going to Doctor Hovsepyan for a few years now and I am gratefully converted! My old place had outdated technology, so everything took a long time and was more laborious than it needed to be. Viva Smile uses state of the art tech that is incredible. Also - and this is a big deal - I don’t feel like they try to sell me upgrades. The care I need is the care I get. I’ve never felt pressured into dental work. They are professional - the whole staff is warm and knowledgeable and the office is inviting and clean.Can’t say enough. Love them!

Amazing experience! The staff is very friendly and helpful and the doctors are truly exceptional at what they do. They are very thorough in answering questions and explaining the process of what they are doing, and make you feel at home. Best of all, everything is very high tech and pristine, and even the most uncomfortable procedure had very minimal to no pain. Very impressed, will be going back!INVISALIGN UPDATE:I felt the need to update this review to reflect my full experience. So I’ll start by saying I’d never had braces and my top teeth were straight with a little crowding down below. It didn’t really bother me aesthetically, but with time and age, I started to grind my teeth, for which I started wearing a fitted night guard. I have also had migraines starting in college, that had been worsening in intensity and frequency since. It wasn’t until after I graduated grad school that I started to sense a correlation between skipping wearing my night guard and getting a migraine that day. I also started continually chipping my two front teeth as my grinding problem was worsening, creating an almost unbearable sensitivity to the point that eating anything with lemon would make me shiver for days.I decided to take the plunge and get Invisalign after seeing Dr. Hovsepyan. They scanned my teeth, ordered custom trays, and on my start date, added 15 attachments to my teeth(which were removed after 7months of treatment), after which I had 10 weeks of “fine tuning.” The trays weren’t painful like some people have stated online. Only maybe the first one or two, since my teeth were not accustomed to moving. After that it was smooth sailing. It took some getting used to wearing them constantly, but it was really cool to track the progress. (They create a little video of the step by step progress you should see each week). The most amazing part? I didn’t have a SINGLE MIGRAINE during Invisalign therapy. I really wish that I had realized the correlation earlier on between grinding my teething and migraines because I would have saved myself years of suffering from persistent migraines that sometimes lasted days. I’m so grateful to Dr. Hovsepyan and for being able to live my life no longer plagued with constant pain. If you’re on the fence about fixing your teeth, please realize that it’s not just an aesthetic problem! I’ve never had braces, so I don’t know how they compare, but regardless of what route you take, don’t delay!

Dr. Hovsepyan and her team are fantastic! Loved the newer technology to get an accurate look at my teeth. Dr. Hovsepyan gave me a realistic plan of how to move forward with aligning my teeth in a short time frame while not trying to pressure me into making any decisions. I had a deep cleaning done on my first visit, which left my teeth looking so good! Everyone is very friendly and welcoming. Glad I found Dr. Hovsepyan and will continue to be her patient.

I've been going to this dentist for over ten years now and have never been disappointed. They are really good at what they do. Timely, professional and super friendly. Dr Hovsepyan is the best.

I absolutely love this office! They are the definition of efficiency and quickness. My appt was at 11:00 for a routine cleaning, I was out the door by 11:21. The receptionist was aware of my insurance change and was able to update it without me providing any additional information. I’m so happy that my boyfriend found this office and recommended me to come here.

Having had my fair share of bad experiences in the dental chair, I felt compelled to share my experiences. But before that let me start from the beginning. The reason I so happen to find this little gem in the sea of practices in the San Fernando valley, was simply due to all the incredible reviews. After reading a few of them one after another they told tails of how basically this place changed their life’s. I thought to myself these people must all be getting paid to say these wonderful things…AND, I KID YOU NOT. It’s all true.From first glance as walk in I knew it was the place for me. It was SUPER CLEAN, the everyone was laid back but incredibly professional. I didn’t have to wait long at all even though it seemed to be pretty popular place.The Dr. came in and I could help it but was Fascinated by how chill she was. She began to explaining to me my options were and such. Then she took off her mask for a brief moment and I saw her smile. Let me tell you, that’s why this place is called Viva smile. It was like God opened up the pearly gates and doves magically appeared out of nowhere. After that she said Nelly, their hygienist a USC grade is going to do my cleaning. And when smiled you can hear Angeles singing too. I received a painless teeth cleaning, made me feel by far the most comfortable and relaxed I have every felt in a dentist office that’s for sure.I’m looking forward to my next visit, thanks again to the ladies of Viva Smile. They will change your life.Dannon W.
