WHAT OUR CULVER CITY PATIENTS ARE SAYING…
Very happy with Dr. Aalam and my results! I’ve needed to correct my gum recession for a couple of years now. Dr. Aalam has been great – very friendly and did an amazing job. The entire staff made the process easy from the initial consultation, pre-op and post-op, and follow up visits. I definitely recommend coming here if you need a periodontist.
I had a gum graft done by Dr. Krivitsky and the whole process was beyond my expectations. Her and the staff are so friendly. She spent time to talk me through the procedure during my consult and listened to my concerns without rushing me through anything. As someone who has a level 10 anxiety for anything teeth related, I can whole heartedly recommend this place.
I found Dr. Krivintsky through Yelp and have not regretted my experience at all. From the front desk, to dental hygienists and the doctor herself, it has been truly a wonderful experience. What impressed me most is that Dr. Krivitsky worked with me in terms of my budget. I am a college student and she understood and listened to my concerns. I could not be happier!
Dr. Aalam is hands down the best Periodontist in LA which makes him one the best in the country. The office and staff are extremely polite, friendly and very professional. They are so attentive and empathetic to your care. I started to have some gum issues and had a spot with a deep pocket. A deep cleaning and a minor procedure completely turned my teeth and gums around and I have never been in a better position with my oral health than where I am at. I couldn’t be happier with the results.
