My teeth and gums are in very fine condition due to their continued diligence and careful treatments. The practice is always up on current treatments but at the same time very very careful with their work. Excellent periodontal cleaning with Reut today. I was a new patient for her and she took great care in understanding my periodontal needs and fears. I left the office with gratitude for the time and effort she put into my appointment. Excellent care at this practice. Highly recommend.”

She explained the procedures, the latest technologies, and what I would have to do pre/post-op very clearly. She called that evening to check in on me (most places have an assistant do that, if they check in at all). She also recommended that I skip the implant for that tooth, and talked me through the pros and cons, which saved me thousands of dollars. Highly recommended.”

After the surgery was complete, she had reached out to check on me that evening, as well as throughout the weekend, making sure that I was doing okay and if I had any questions and concerns with the healing process.

I have heard numerous wisdom teeth removal horror stories so I was a bit nervous about the appointment, but while in the care of Doctor Shahi, not only did I feel zero pain during and after, I recovered so quickly! Barely any bruising. People barely believed me when I told them I was just out of surgery! I cannot thank Dr. Shahi and her team enough for the amazing job they did!

“I had received some very bad dental care for years unknowingly and ended up needing to get a bone graft and implant as a result. Although she originally didn’t think it would be possible, Dr. Shahi was able to remove my tooth and infection as well as do the bone graft in the same appointment saving me time and money. I also didn’t even need the Codeine afterwards. Everyone is different but I had minimal pain (a couple of days with regular Advil) and just a little bit of swelling. I appreciated how she explained the treatment plan to me and was patient with questions, and how she was available to me after the procedure for any questions I had. I contacted her a couple of times and she responded right away.”

I was referred to Dr. Shahi by my dentist for some gum issues. I had braces at a young age for many years which made it difficult to keep my teeth as a teenager for many years, hence my gum health declined. Dr. Shahi’s office is great! Tami is very accommodating and made my appointment and payment interactions very smooth. They are very transparent about what the fees will be up front so that there are no surprises at the end of treatment. At least I know what I am getting myself into! Dr. Shahi was very caring. You can tell she genuinely wants you to get better and have healthier gums. I had gum surgery where my friends who have had it said would be a miserable ordeal so I was expecting the worst. But fortunately for me, my recovery was seamless. Minor discomfort. Dr. Shahi checked up on me multiple times. Thank you Dr. Shahi for your work and wonderful team!

“I will preface this by saying that I’ve only been going to Dr. Shahi for around a year now and also that I rarely write reviews, mostly because I don’t have the time or the inclination. But I have finally begun getting traction on a treatment plan that I have been trying to address for years. I have found it almost impossible to find a periodontist that I feel I can trust, have a good rapport with, whose staff is phenomenal and who will get the work done without killing me in the process. And now I finally feel my search is over. As an example, I had two infected teeth pulled by Dr. Shahi in the same day. In the past, pulling a tooth was a crapshoot and often ended up with considerable pain during recovery. In this case I really didn’t even need the pain meds which is significant considering both teeth were infected. That showed me that Dr. Shahi is thorough and considerate. When COVID restrictions came down on the dental industry, Dr. Shahi called personally to inform me and answer any questions I had!!! What?!?! What dentist or periodontist or any business owner for that matter does that these days?? I don’t think that it’s reasonable to expect that there’s a practice that is going to be 100% flawless in every aspect of their operation. But if you place emphasis on honesty, fantastic bedside manner, wonderful staff and minimal pain in your treatments, then I recommend Dr. Shahi in the most fervent possible way.”

“Dr. Shahi was recommended to me by my dentist. I needed a gum graft and they worked with me while it was a little more challenging to schedule me due to childcare availability. The procedure itself was fantastic. I had minimal discomfort and she explained everything to me starting with the consultation where I had 1,000 questions. I’m a visual person and she pulled her laptop out and showed me pictures so I could mentally prepare for the procedure. Once this was done I needed some more work done and she worked together with Dr. Rauth. This time no pain. She was a little concerned about something and made extra sure I would heal ok. Overall, I wouldn’t go anywhere else and I don’t even like to get my teeth cleaned. Extremely great bedside manner and patience for the entire team. Would always go back and continue to recommend them!”

Dr. Shahi is incredible. Please, do yourself a favor and stop surfing the web for the best dental surgeon in LA. You’ve found her! Right here! I went to Dr. Shahi for a gum graft, and am so happy I did. She is incredibly talented. She works quickly, expertly, and painlessly.
All the dentistry expertise is there (I’m no expert, but I healed great, no infections, not much pain, a fast procedure, great explanations of everything that she was doing etc etc). What makes Dr. Shahi’s practice more than just a good office, are the intangibles.
The office is warm, kind, and flexible. Led by Iris, the front desk always answer the phone and return calls. They are so on top of things, so you don’t have to be. They work with you and your insurance. They take every covid precaution imaginable. Dr. Shahi’s other assistants, including Miriam, are so kind, and tend to their patients with so much care.
Dr. Shahi leads a bad ass group of health professionals, and I love them! Somehow, I have sutures in my mouth, but am not that uncomfortable. I’m so grateful I (found a) dental surgeon who is both brilliant, and kind.
Seriously, go here for anything periodontist related. You’ll be so happy you did.

Visiting a periodontist is scary to begin with since you’re going there because of a problem. I asked Dr. Shahi to be gentle with the way she addressed my potential problems. She did just that, giving me hope that together we’d come up with a treatment plan to save my teeth. She also found an infection under a root canal tooth that I didn’t know I had because I have no nerves in that tooth. Working on that problem for tomorrow. I would recommend her and her wonderful office staff without reservation and with enthusiasm!

Dr. Shahi and her staff are top notch! Even during COVID the office was cheerful and accommodating with plenty of protocols in place for safety. My teenage son had two procedures on his gums with Dr. Shahi and he came out with flying colors! Little or no pain or discomfort afterwards. I also had to undergo a procedure due to a gum infection and my recovery time was quick and I was feeling better fast. Always friendly and informative, Dr. Shahi really spends the time with her patients and goes the extra mile to inform, prepare and make sure that her patients know exactly what to expect. If she does not feel that her area of expertise is right for a procedure, she is generous enough to recommend a colleague. This happened recently with my son. I really appreciated that. It made me feel like she was really looking out for my son’s best interest. Appointments are easy, the front desk is efficient.

I feel fortunate to have been going to Dr. Pattison’s for many years and now continue with Dr. Shahi at the helm. I cannot say enough good things about them. I respect and have complete trust in their management decisions for my care. Not quick to do x-rays or invasive procedures but always when rightfully indicated for best care and dental maintenance. The dental surgeries are executed with great skill and expertise with great care for my comfort and safety, and with optimum outcomes – I say this coming from a healthcare background. The support staff are the best, especially Iris. I met a new dental hygienist today, Art, who gave me a thorough dental cleaning with gentle, careful and precise hands. I love Dr. Shahi, Dr. Pattison and their team. They are the best!

I came to see Dr. Shahi for an extraction and bone graft. I’m definitely a person who has anxiety especially at the dentist. The experience exceeded my expectations. Although there were some moments of discomfort (my tooth was particularly hard to extract) I felt no pain during the procedure. The recovery went just as she explained with minimal pain. She certainly did a great job of walking me through all the steps before, during, and after. I never felt rushed in her office and her staff was by far the sweetest. Overall I get very well taken care of and my fears and nervousness were handled with patience and kindness. I definitely would recommend her to anyone. Thank you Dr. Shahi!

Never thought I’d rather get a tooth pulled than getting another flu shot! Dr. Shahi is an outstanding periodontist.

Great communication and follow up. Cannot recommend highly enough.

I think Dr. Rana Shahi is the BEST!….The first visit I had last year was for gum surgery and I did not feel any pain…..after the surgery, I went home and never had any pain…..amazing!!!!….today I had a “deep cleaning”…..I was given shots of novocaine and truthfully did not feel hardly any needles going into my gum…..I have been home now all day and absolutely no pain at all after all that…..Dr. Shahi, as far as I am concerned, is wonderful and I would recommend her to everyone….Thank you Dr. Shahi…see you in a month.

Dr. Shahi is my guardian angel. I cracked a tooth the first couple of days into the pandemic. I had fear and panic running through my mind wondering what I was going to do. Dr.Shahi came to my rescue. Because it was a dental emergency she stepped up and was able to pull my tooth and get me fitted with a temporary bridge. She was kind and gentle and literally had the hands of a surgeon. I would highly recommend her and I would give her and her staff 10 stars if I could. Thank You Dr. Shahi for your expertise and kindness.

Dr. Shahi is amazing. Everything that Dr. Pattison wrote about her is correct. She is professional, knowledgeable, warm, and caring.

I am very grateful to have her as my periodontist.

Dr. Shahi is amazing. So as everyone who works in the office, very friendly. Dr. Shahi is also very friendly, easy to communicate to and very gentle. She did the crown lengthening surgery for me and it came out beautiful. I’ve always had gummy smile issue ever since I can remember because how my upper jaw is slightly lower. I’ve gone through two orthodontic treatments in the past 5 years trying to improve this but I wasn’t 100% satisfied with my smile still although we’ve done everything we could. After talking to my dentist back and forth of how to improve my smile, we decided to do the veneers. To have the perfect result and make my money worth, he suggested me to go to Dr. Shahi first for a crown lengthening surgery to reduce some gum tissue to make the gum line prettier. The procedure went smoothly, Dr. Shahi did a really good job at numbing me, this I had to point out because I almost felt nothing and she had to numb my gum tissue and in the bone too. Just had a recheck with her and the result looks beautiful. I’m already getting so many compliments and people can really tell a difference! Thank you Dr. Shahi for fixing the gummy smile I had for my whole life and made my smile so much better!

My mouth has never been in good shape — genes maybe? Anyway when I was about 40 FIVE dentists told me I had to have my FRONT TOOTH pulled out! This was in the infancy of implants and I felt desperate! I went to Dr. Pattison and he literally worked a miracle on that tooth. He gave it so much special treatment and wizardry — actually he was surprised and delighted at how the pocket closed up. He said,”I can’t guarantee anything but looks good… “. I continued to see him 3 times a year and he would sometimes clean my teeth *himself* because he had certain things in mind. Super conservative, super attentive to detail.
I am now 70 and I still have that tooth. 10 years ago I moved to Chicago and my mouth has really fallen apart from the crude, bad dentistry in this town. I only got to appreciate Dr. Pattison even more once I saw what the rest of the world was like!
He is super honest. He is super skillful. He will do everything to save your natural mouth and avoid radical intervention. I miss him more than anything else in LA. And that is true.
He also has an impeccable reputation with his peers and teaches at USC one of the top dental schools in the US.

I can’t recall ever having such a pleasant dental experience in my 70 years. I, again, want to thank Dr. Pattison and his staff for being so kind and technically adept.

“My name is Carol. I was a dental hygienist for 30 years before retiring and moving to Santa Monica. After moving here, it was important to find a highly qualified periodontist with skilled hygienists in her practice. It took a great deal of research on my part before finding Dr. Rana Shahi. The fact that Dr. Shahi had a Masters & Doctorate in Oral Biology, besides earning her DDS and a degree in Periodontics was particularly important to me. I consider myself very fortunate to have found Dr. Shahi. She took the time to consult with her UCLA colleagues about my case. She is on the cutting edge of the newest techniques, medications, and research in the field of perio. Speaking as a former periodontal hygienist, I am so impressed with the highly skilled and gentle hygienists in her practice.

“After receiving a diagnosis from another periodontist that didn’t seem right, I started looking around for second opinions.
I wanted to make the best decision, so I set a few consultations up. Luckily, after a few not so great ones, a friend referred me to Dr. Shahi. I never felt completely comfortable with any of the places I went. That is, until I went to Dr. Shahi.
She actually took the time to walk me through what was happening and answered all of my questions (and I’m sure I asked a lot!) She didn’t rush me out the door and I felt like she understood my concerns. She is incredibly knowledgeable and explained everything so thoroughly. Although I’d prefer not to need any treatments, I left the consultation feeling comfortable scheduling and knowing I was in good hands.
After multiple visits, I still feel the same way as I did at the consultation. The staff is incredibly sweet and everyone is so knowledgeable. I learn something new every time I go!”

Dr. Shahi has completely changed my opinion on dentists. After having a troubling experience with a dentist in the past I was reluctant to get dental work done ever again. Dr. Shahi has amazing table side manners, works quick and painlessly.

This review is long overdue and if I could give Dr. Shahi more stars, I would. I am a person that gets nervous around doctors but Dr. Shahi made me feel 100% comfortable from day #1. I truly appreciate her kindness because I was completely terrified inside during my initial consultation. She smiled and told me that everything would be okay and proceeded to conduct her exam. She was patient, soft-spoken, professional, knowledgeable, caring and truly listened to all of my concerns. After my initial meeting, we scheduled another appointment for a semi-deep clean and 2 days later, gum surgery on the right side of my mouth. I still have 3 surgeries to go after I am fully recovered and I can’t imagine trusting another periodontist to conduct this highly evasive surgery.
Before my gum surgery, Dr. Shahi gave me a list of instructions and told me that she would be checking on me via phone after the procedure. She kept her word and made herself available to me 24/7 for the next 3 weeks as my mouth healed. She called and texted me every day for several weeks. Her sympathy truly amazed me since I had never met a doctor who truly cared this much. I am truly grateful to have found Dr. Shahi. Without her, my mouth would still be in severe pain. I highly recommend her services to anyone looking for a periodontist in Los Angeles.

Cecelia (dental assistant) introduced herself at the beginning of the exam. Dr. Pattison patiently LISTENED as I explained my issue. He EXPLAINED the procedure and showed me the equipment being used (my favorite). He was CONCERNED about my pain level and gave me a CHOICE of using Novocaine (I declined). He TALKED me through each step of the procedure. I really appreciated his taking the time to show me the equipment; amazing technology! Thank you! -Dean C. 9/15/18

Thanks Rana for always being sweet and taking time to discuss things with me. I walk into the office scared, talk to you and then walk into the room confident. Office staff is also a highlight. I always look forward to seeing everyone! Thanks for making something so awful so enjoyable! 9/9/18

Dr. Rana Shahi I have to say, was one of the 3 best people I’ve seen concerning my oral and dental health.
Let me begin by saying as a child, I had a dentist I was so afraid of. His office was cool, he had hamburger time in the waiting room so I could play that video game. And I always knew when I left his office I could get into the treasure chest and pick toys. I also knew upon coming into his office that I would have a choice to open my mouth or he told me if I didn’t open my mouth he’d shove the Novocain up my nose. Needless to say I was completely frightened of the dentist. From the age 5 on I was always terrified of visits to the dentist.
This last year I had come up with some pretty severe dental issues, I had had an abscess in the tooth, I’ve never had anything like that before, and I was scared. I was referred to the dentist who referred me to Dr. Shahi. She was actually the last person I needed to see in the process, I have to say she was the most gentle periodontist I could’ve ever wished for. Her work is delicate and calming. I had to have some skin grafting done which I had no idea what that entailed and I was completely frightened. But she’s an incredible doctor,
and I was calm and comfortable enough to take pictures of her doing the procedure.
If you’re anything like me and frightened of the dentist she is amazing and I highly recommend her. I will post the pictures I took they’re completely on flattering but to give you an idea of how comfortable I was the pictures worth 1000 words. She’s also extremely compassionate and cares about her patients and that really matters to me. She rules!!
In the photos you can see her stitching my gum which I never thought I would ever be possible for anybody to do with me without having a complete spaz attack. 8/23/18

I find Dr. Shahi to be the ultimate in a competent, caring, and compassionate dentist. I don’t think you could do better. This includes her staff from the front desk all the way to the technicians and the hygienist. All top-notch! 7/6/18

It’s very comforting to know that the people taking care of you know what they’re doing and care about doing a good job. That’s always how I feel after visiting Dr. Pattison’s office. 7/6/18

Dr. Shahi was incredibly sympathetic throughout my entire extraction and implant process. She made sure I understood what was going on in my mouth and guided me through the steps I should take to promote proper healing. She was very responsive whenever I had questions (or freak outs…) and has an overall kindness that makes you feel like you’re in good hands. These qualities are also reflected in her staff, Cecilia and Rebecca, who put me at ease at every visit. I can’t recommend Dr. Shahi and her office enough! 7/5/18

My visit to Dr. Pattison’s office was exceptional in every way. The office staff is friendly and efficient. Dr. Pattison was welcoming and professional. He took the time to do a very thorough exam and answered all of my questions. I highly recommend this periodontal practice.

I was referred to Dr. Pattison for an implant. Aside from the total success of his work – I am so delighted with HIM & his lovely staff. I was very scared, but they kept me at ease and all was smooth, gentle & kind! I couldn’t see ever having such an involved procedure ANYWHERE else! (reviewed on Dr. Oogle)

The second I left the office yesterday I left a review on google. That’s how happy I was with my visit. Rebecca was so so incredible. I could really go on and on about how much Rebecca turned my visit into something I was sincerely dreading and frankly panicked about, into a doctors visit I was actually looking forward to happening again. She made me feel better and calm when I was scared and stressed. I came in crying and left with a huge (and temporarily toothless) smile on my face. Dr. Shahi was insanely sweet and patient with me. Gentle in every way and when I broke down crying she knew exactly what to say to calm me down and gain that doctor/patient trust. I have to come back for more work and my dental situation is not a great one but I know this doctor and her staff will take care of me and help me along the way. I feel that I am in good hands and with people who actually care about my health. –3/13/18
