"Dr. Reshad is the man. He listens. He cares. He loves and is passionate about his work. I couldn't be happier with his plan and look forward to my new smile. I know he is plenty busy but I always feel like I'm his only patient.
If you seek the ultimate problem solver for teeth you better end your search now. "
"I found ArtLab online. I interviewed 4 Drs prior to and was convinced my only option would be to fly to Vegas for all on 4s. I came to this conclusion after the consults and lots of outside consults with non-Drs friends and family.
I never had a perfect bite. It's something I dreamed about over the years beginning in my childhood. I actually learned to accept that big space and other gaps as part of my personality. In my 20s I had the gap closed with these fancy things they call veneers. I was thrilled and they lasted years but ultimately destroyed my lower front teeth and my self esteem was suffering. Plus I was still dealing with an out of aligned mouth. Several old bridges and s lock key bite.
Let me be brief: I never met any staff prior to my first call with Mirna. Since that day I've grown to cherish them as they accompany me on this journey. Everyone is lovely.
Back to dentistry. Several plans were presented and discussed after Dr. Reshad's initial and thorough consult.
Fast forward and financials agreed upon.
Dec 12th we began. Arrived early fueled with excitement.
Let me mention that transformation begins with choice. Once I agreed my self esteem began healing. I am improving on my well being. It's what I do for others and it feels great to do it for myself too.
Opting for a thorough plan that will last the good part of a year and I intend to update along the way. Now let me catch you up.
I had my 4 lower fronts removed in Dec. all of my other teeth were initially prepped for a temp bridge which I left with same day. More whole and complete than when I arrived and I left with 4 less teeth. They didn't deserve my new smile. Painless recovery and genuine follow up calls by staff.
Many compliments on my temps!!
Fast forward early Jan. Returned for stitch removal. No pain. Gums healing nice and implant surgery is scheduled after state of the art in-house cat scan.
Minutes later surgery scheduled for Jan 31. Wait today? Yes earlier today. Dr. implanted 3 lower implants. Scheduled and planned for 4 but recognized patient necessity called for less during surgery and there was too much sensitivity and not worth the risk. This is my interpretation and perhaps I'm a bit off. It's been a day.
Anyhow, my son picked me up at 3:30 which was about 3 hours after we began. A bit of initial discomfort but upon arriving home I scheduled my meds (scripts provided in advance) to be taken for swelling and infection. At this time I'm happy to report that I have no pain and surgery ended 10 hours ago.
I'm scheduled for 14 stitches to be removed on Feb 14th. Perfect. My guess is based on how I feel I'll be ready for the other 3 upper implants soon. I could honestly go back tomorrow for them. However, Dr. would never.
Dr. Reshad is the man. He listens. He cares. He loves and is passionate about his work. I'll update more after my next appointment."
"I'm Dentiphobic. Didn't want to go to see a dentist since horrible experiences as a small child. Thought if I left my teeth alone they would leave me alone. The result is my teeth were bad and getting worse. Broken and missing teeth was what I had and there was nothing that would make them better. I needed a full restoration, which meant all-on-four implants and full arches of teeth top and bottom. Absolutely terrifying. Starting to research it I came across a dentist with great credentials and amazing reviews. Dr. Reshad. Took a while to summon the courage to make the appointment, but it is one of the best mind over fear things I ever did. It took a long time, but I now have an incredible smile and can eat whatever I want. The teeth feel almost like they are real. This makes an amazing difference in my life and how I can deal with people. No longer do I have to make sure my lips cover my teeth or smile without ever showing any teeth, as I have done for years. Dr. Reshad and everyone at the practice are great people, caring and very competent. Dr. Reshad has a great manner with patients; he is a nice person who makes you much healthier and look great."
"I'm "That Guy", the word dentist was not in my vocabulary. Horrible, horrible experiences in my mid 20's. In my first phone call, Noel listened to my situation and said "I called the right place", exactly what I needed to hear. Dr. Reshad is the doctor I have been looking for my entire life. He took a look at my situation and explained every option in detail. I was so relieved not only that I found a doctor I can trust but felt that he had my best interest at heart. I never felt embarrassed of the years of neglect only excitement that I'm going to get the care I need. With Mirna taking the time to go over everything with my wife, rearranging schedules and pushing vendors to help me for the holidays. I'm so thankful! I have had 3 appointments within the past week and when I say they are a team is an understatement. I have never in my life have been more excited to go the dentist. I can't wait to share my experience. Thank you so much Dr. Reshad, you are changing my life!" --John
"If you’re scared of the dentist, go to Dr. Reshad. I went in for a check up and discovered I needed a filling. It was my first one so I was really terrified! But I had nothing to worry about, it was a completely painless experience thanks to Dr. Reshad! Dr. Reshad put me at absolute ease before the procedure (I have a fear of needles) and then administered the injection so carefully I didn’t feel a thing. Throughout the procedure both the hygienist and Dr. Reshad were made sure I was comfortable. We completed the process with an X-ray to show it had filled the cavity - and it was perfect. I’m no longer scared of the dentist anymore thanks to Dr. Reshad and his caring team."
"Words can’t express how happy I am with Dr. Reshad and his entire staff!!! Years ago I had multiple adult teeth removed by an orthodontist in an attempt to fix an underbite. Unfortunately my bite was never fully fixed, and as a result of having so many teeth removed, I was left with a sunken smile. After time passed, I finally decided to try and search for a solution to somehow reverse what this orthodontist had done. I consulted with a couple of top orthodontists in the area, all of which told me that in order to achieve the results I wanted, I would need double jaw surgery and braces….HELL NO. I finally started looking into cosmetic dentistry in hopes to find a better, less invasive solution. Finally the clouds parted and I came across Dr. Reshad and Artlab Dentistry!! Meeting with Dr. Reshad and his staff was one of the best experiences. They made me feel like part of the family as opposed to just another patient. Dr. Reshad took the time to really listen to my concerns and helped put in a plan of action that would fix my bite, and achieve the smile I wanted. We decided on veneers, and before setting a time for the actual procedure I was able to try out test veneers and let Dr. Reshad know the adjustments, coloring, etc. I wanted to personalize my teeth. Once I felt comfortable with what we decided on it was time to get them done! Throughout the whole procedure Dr. Reshad and his assistant made me feel so comfortable, and when we finished I could NOT believe my eyes!! I swear these veneers not only looked extremely realistic, but they fixed my bite AND gave me an even more amazing smile than I was looking for!! Instantly people were noticing my smile, random strangers would give me compliments, it was like a whole new me and I couldn’t have been happier with the results. Dr. Reshad is not only an extremely skilled prosthodontist...he is an extremely skilled artist. You can truly see how much he cares about his work and his patients by the results. Having this work done was one of the best decisions of my life and I can tell you I’ve never really looked forward to something so much until meeting Dr. Reshad and his incredible team. Thank you Dr. Reshad and everyone else at Artlab!! I can’t even describe how grateful I am for you all."
"I have been extremely fortunate in having Dr. Mamaly Reshad as my Periodontist. I went to him for dental implants and he gave me the desired results I always wanted. He is an extremely detail oriented, compassionate and knowledgeable professional who spent the necessary time to actively listen to my concerns. He had a genuine desire to offer the best possible treatment, so the desired results were achieved. It has been a pleasure to be his patient and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Dr. Reshad and his professional staff to anyone interested in having a beautiful smile."
"You're THE BEST OF THE BEST doctors and master of all the doctors in your profession! You changed my life and impacted me in unbelievable ways, with the most beautiful perfect smile, ever! And there isn't a day that I don't thank God for putting Dr. Reshad in my life. I'm forever grateful for you and EVERYTHING you did for me!"
---Joshua R. | patient email, May 26, 2017
"Making an appt with Dr. Reshad was one of the best decisions I've made regarding my health. From the first appt to the last my exp was excellent. His sincerity and compassion is matched by his technical skill. I spent 20 yrs working in hospitals, and know skill when I see it. His support staff are great and the end result was and is beautiful. I had a full dental reconstruction that you'd never know to look at. The look and function is perfectly natural. Strangers will often comment on my "great" smile. A nice thing to hear. Do yourself a favor. Check out his office if you need work done. You won't regret it."
"Dr. Reshad made it possible for me to continue work on my TV series. Under the most challenging circumstances, I might add. We love these medical/dental/surgical artists."
Actor Eric Roberts, Los Angeles, CA | Facebook post, May 12, 2017
"I spend most of the year in London, but Dr. Reshad was so highly recommended by two colleagues in LA, I decided to go to him for my implants during a recent 2 month visit to California. Firstly let me tell you, I am a VERY nervous patient! I have had countless bad dental experiences since I knocked out three teeth aged 11 (I'm 48 now), but Dr. Reshad could not have been more understanding or patient and I felt completely at ease within the first 10 minutes of my first appointment. He really does take patient care to a new level! To say I'm thrilled with the results is an understatement. I just didn't think it was possible to get such good results and I have had so many compliments on my teeth both here in LA and back in London. I have no hesitation in recommending Dr. Reshad to anybody in the LA area looking for the very highest standard of treatment in aesthetic dentistry."
---Jane H. | 5-Star Yelp review, April 10, 2017
"When I met with Dr. Reshad, I was extremely impressed with his professional abilities and his obvious concern for my case. He was very upfront and honest, never made me feel rushed, and explained everything in detailed terms that I could understand. I have been through several oral procedures and I'm thrilled with the outcome of this procedure and the final product created by Dr. Reshad."
---Sham M., Davis, CA | 5-Star Yelp review, March 31, 2017
"I came here after a somewhat troubling experience seeing a dentist downtown in LA. I was very impressed with the level of communication Dr. Reshad establishes with his patients from the get go. I have some issues with my teeth, not bad but could be better 🙂 so I am able to tell somewhat easily if a dentist knows what they are doing.
Dr. Reshad was recommended highly by the dentist I saw when I lived in Chicago, Dr. Nader Sharifi. His communication with his staff is great. Always good to hear the dentist instructing his staff carefully and directly on what to do and how. But it's the communication he has with a patient that is truly remarkable. I was in and out in about 30 minutes, but I felt like I established a relationship with his office that will last the entirety of my time in California. Very caring, and quickly diagnosed my need for a root canal therapy (not what I wanted to hear but that's OK) and referred me to a highly recommended endodontist and came up with a comprehensive treatment plan for me. I look forward to my next dental appointment!"
---Delta S., Los Angeles | 5-star Yelp review, March 30, 2017
"Just a great dentist. I'm 52 and have been to many dentists over the years. I have to say that Dr. Reshad is by far the most honest and personable dentist I have met. And on top of that he is a really good dentist.
After 52 years my teeth needed some love. I was hiding my smile because my front teeth were chipped and crooked. I thought I was going to have to spend tons of money on veneers but Dr. Reshad took a different approach and not only saved me money he made my smile great again. I can't recommend him enough. If you're looking for someone who is talented and honest, Dr. Reshad is your man."
---Benjamin P., Studio City, CA | 5-star Yelp review, March 28, 2017
"Dr. Reshad is an outstanding dentist! He is extremely kind and courteous with his patients and their office is in a great location!"
---K.P., Encino, CA | 5-star Yelp review, March 14, 2017
"I was interested in correcting my smile with porcelain veneers but did not want the big 'piano key smile' that most dentists showed me in their before and after photos. I asked a friend who was a Beverly Hills plastic surgeon to recommend a great dentist who did very natural looking veneers and he said Dr. Reshad was the best. Instead of correcting my smile with a costly 8 veneers, which was recommended by most dentists, Dr. Reshad created a treatment plan which involved lifting my gumline and improved the shape of my smile with only two veneers. He is the best and made my entire experience a comfortable one. I recommend him highly to anyone with dental issues or who wants to make cosmetic improvements to their smile. He's an artist."
---Alexandria H., Los Angeles, CA | 5-star RealSelf review, February 20, 2017
"Great dentist, friendly staff, the best experience
"I went to numerous places and had terrible experiences and finally found the one! Dr. Reshad is one of a kind and so caring. He really listens and pays attention to his client's needs. For the first time in many years my mouth feels new thanks to him and his great work. Also the staff is great and they are very welcoming and friendly. He really is an artist at work when it comes to his profession so the name of the office perfectly fits the service! ---Pouri N., Van Nuys, CA | 5-Star Yelp review, January 24, 2017
"He did 14 dental implants for me 11 years ago and they really feel and function just like my own natural teeth and still going."

"What a great doctor who has it all the art and science. He works like a CAD/CAM machine .He is the one who invented the IN-IN-OUT technique in dentistry. Even though he is a specialist
---Hussam A. | 5-Star FaceBook review, November 17, 2016
"Dr. Reshad is extremely knowledgeable in what he does and very caring. He take his time to explain what needs to be done and reviews pros and cons of each case with and shows the ultimate outcome. He answers any related question openly and honestly without sugar coating. He truly does his best to ensure you are comfortable during the procedure, and his ultimate goal is to have a satisfied patient. By the way, his great personality is like icing on the cake."
---Jamie A., | HealthGrades 5-star review, November 11, 2016
"I found Dr. Reshad through a dental assistant that used to work with him. She told me that if I was even considering redoing my front teeth, I had to go see him. She went through the process with him day after day and raved about the amazing outcome on all the patients. I took that as a great recommendation and went to him for a second opinion and now SO glad I did. I just walked out with 4 crowns on my front teeth that are BEAUTIFUL, no one would ever know they are not "real"!
I had a root canal in between my two front teeth 20+ years ago and desperately needed to replace the veneers that were barely hanging on. I was very concerned and nervous since they were my front teeth and struggled with who to go to that I would be comfortable with. My dentist said for them to match it would be best to replace all 6 front teeth, 2 with crowns and 4 with veneers but after seeing Dr. Reshad, he said I didn't need to do that at all. He felt that replacing 4 would be fine and making them all crowns would be a better strategy, so the material/texture would be the same on all the teeth.
He is a true artist! The attention to detail and careful treatment plan never wavered throughout the 2-month process. He sent me to the person that creates the teeth in Santa Monica so the color would be perfect. Dr. Reshad's great bedside manner was ongoing and much appreciated. I trusted him with everything and felt his level of care and concern made that easy.
I am VERY happy and Dr. Reshad and the ArtLab staff were all WONDERFUL - friendly, professional and caring. I will now be recommending Dr. Reshad to everyone I know! What a sweet, gentle man that knows how to treat his patients."

---Vivian D. | 5-Star FaceBook review, September 16, 2016
"I went to Dr Reshad to fix damage another dentist had done to my teeth. Definitely nervous since I had such a horrific job done elsewhere. From the moment I walked in the office I was treated like their #1 patient. Even though my mouth seemed to give him hell throughout the whole process. We started with a couple filings, a lot of teeth pulled, and then the big work. He did a five implant surgery under sedation. They made sure I was always comfortable and it went great. Would love to say everything was painless, but there's no way around that one. No matter what time, day or night, if I had a problem I could get seen right away. My body did reject one post ( rarely happens ) and Dr. Reshad came in on a Sunday to remove it. Most dentist offices I've seen make you pay to put the post back in since YOUR body rejected it. Not Dr. Reshad, he guarantees his work no matter what. He told me even if my body rejected every single post he would just put them back in one by one. No extra charges. Rejection is rare so that wouldn't happen, but felt safe knowing he cares that much. My final results were amazing!! I had 7 new teeth on 5 posts, a bridge, and filings. I can't thank him enough for giving me my life back. I can easily eat whatever I want, no more pain. Not to mention how beautiful my teeth are. Just gorgeous! Going to Anacapa was the best decision I've ever made for my mouth and health!! A million thank you's can't even show how grateful I am for Dr. Reshad and Anacapa Dental Team." (now ArtLab Dentistry)

"When they say "Dental Art Institute"...they aren't kidding!...Dr. Reshad is a true artist & you can tell immediately that it's not just his profession, it's his life's passion. His attention to detail is unsurpassed! There's something so comforting in knowing that your Dr. is undeniably the best at what he does...He really listens to your concerns & truly understands what you're trying to achieve & then takes all his knowledge to go beyond what you were expecting. I've been to a few dentists over the past couple of years but wasn't happy with the results...and then I found Anacapa...and I feel blessed to have found them!...all the reviews are absolutely true!...they are consistently warm, caring, compassionate & extremely professional without being stuffy & the staff is wonderful!...they are my new dental "family"...I finally have perfect teeth that are GORGEOUS & wouldn't even dream of going anywhere else...I am a client for life!...I highly recommend Dr. Reshad & Anacapa Dental Art Institute."

""Dr. Reshad and his staff are PHENOMENAL - friendly, professional, careful, and accommodating! Everyone was extremely attentive and made sure my visits were nothing less than extraordinary. Starting with the appointment booking and all the way through my two visits this month, I am very pleased with my over-all experience. The attention to detail and careful treatment during my long overdue cleaning and x-rays surpassed all of my prior dental visit experiences. I am most excited to start using my new teeth whitening gel and come back for my next routine cleaning in the next 4-6 months. Easy parking is a plus. I wouldn't trust anyone else with my dental care and will now be recommending Dr. Reshad to everyone I know!""

"Dr. Reshad is the most amazing dentist, perfectionist, friend, and all-round "cream of the crop" doctor! I could go on and on about his skills, unbelievable work, and what I have experienced over the past several months of getting to know him during the full reconstruction of my mouth.
Dr. Reshad's work is Absolutely Amazing! There exists no better Doctor than Dr. Reshad!"
---Joshua Redd, Laguna Beach, CA | 5-star Facebook review, June 6, 2015
"Great dentist. My fiancé and I came in with some serious issues that a previous dentist created. Dr. Reshad was extremely kind, patient and understanding with the severity of our issues and has begun to correct and fix all the problems which we are forever thankful for. We definitely will continue to recommend Anacapa to anyone!!!" (Now ArtLab Dentistry)
---Andrew H., Los Angeles | 5-Star Yelp review, November 13, 2014
"I am a general dentist and have worked with Dr. Reshad in several cases together. I have also attended many of their seminars and mini residency programs. His knowledge and experience is superb and I can always count on a smooth execution of a treatment plan from start to finish no matter how complex the case is. If myself or any of my family members needed any major dental work, I would not hesitate to go to him. I would be guaranteed top notch dental work in a pleasant and relaxed environment. His confidence and knowledge makes you very relaxed about the outcome of your treatment..."
---Ray H., Woodland Hills | 5-Star Yelp review, August 23, 2014
"I made an appointment with Dr. Reshad for a 10 year old crown to be replaced on my front tooth from when I was a kid. It had started to turn grey and discolored over the years and the industry I am in your appearance is everything. I had an initial consultation and I must say, I was amazed. I am not one to like the dentist or the shots that go along with it. The office is VERY well kept. Modern and relaxing.!! This office makes you feel comfortable and welcome the moment you walk in.. Within 3 min, of my arrival, one of the staff members escorted me to my room. I was offered water and made sure I was relaxed. They bring a new meaning to customer service. Mind you, all insurance and payment options had been addressed prior to my visit. So, it was a breeze once I was there.I recommend Anacapa Dental Art Institute to anyone who is looking for an honest, artistic and well prepared office who wants to help you get the smile you deserve. An amazingly beautiful result with the help of his master technician from Italy. I highly recommend this office for anyone looking for meticulous work done on their teeth." (Now ArtLab Dentistry)
---Dan F., Sylmar, CA | 5-Star Yelp review, February 28, 2014
"I would highly and wholeheartedly recommend Dr. Reshad to anyone, especially to patients with dental phobia and in need of a high caliber specialist.
Prior to being referred to Dr. Reshad, I've seen quite a few dentists, as I was a 'pretty difficult case' ( missing incisor followed by years of braces to close the gap, which culminated with a very poorly reconstructed front tooth). That is why, when I went to see him, I was not expecting any miracles. To my surprise, it only took Dr. Reshad 3 sessions to give me a smile I could never imagine possible. He not only restored my smile, but also my confidence! What a life changing experience! Words cannot express my gratitude to Dr. Reshad and his team.
Apart from his brilliant technical ability, Dr. Reshad has got a pretty witty sense of humor and a superb chair-side manner, which helped me relax and enjoy the beautiful background music during my treatment."
---Christina T. | 5-Star Yelp review, February 21, 2014
"Going to the dentist is traumatic but Dr Reshad was simply the best dentist I could have hoped to deal with. He explains exactly what he is doing, is clearly skilled and proficient and made something I was dreading into a really good experience. Everything about this dental surgery will ensure your visit is a good one and you can be assured that you are getting the best treatment in the world. I had poor dental care as a teenager and Dr. Reshad saved me from having to have teeth pulled, sorted out some rather severe fillings and gave me amazing crowns for the teeth that needed them. It really does matter who you see in the dental world! You know you are in good hands when you have a specialist that regularly teaches other dentists and is much sought after. I highly recommend both Dr. Reshad and Anacapa Dental. It may sound cheesy but he gave me a great smile and for that I am extremely thankful!" (Now ArtLab Dentistry)
---Natasha B. | 5-Star Yelp review, February 13, 2014
"I don't think I've ever had a more pleasant experience at a Dental practice! Dr. Reshad is not only the best at what he does but his personality is so entertaining that you forget that you're at the dentist.
It's no wonder they named the practice Anacapa "Art" Institute. Dr. Reshad is a true dental artist and perfectionist. He will not let you leave his chair unless he is 100% satisfied with his work and all this and no pain!
Highly recommend Dr. Reshad and Anacapa Dental Art Institute." (Now ArtLab Dentistry)

"Just A Really Great Dentist"
“Dr. Reshad Put My Mind at Ease”
My name is Becky, and I came to surgery after being referred by my dentist. He told me that Dr. Reshad was a specialist in implants. I had a tumor on my front tooth after it was knocked out by a golf club accidentally.
“Dr. Reshad Is An Artist”
I can say that Dr. Reshad is really knowledgeable. He has golden hands. I love to see how he works with the tools. Dr. Reshad is an artist that's for sure. I am happy with Dr. Reshad and I would recommend him to everybody.
“The Experience with Dr. Reshad was a Delight”
The experience with Dr. Reshad was a delight and a surprise. I had extensive work done on four crowns on the lower right and one crown on the upper right.
