A great, caring, smart, and honest periodontist. I only go to her for my gum grafts and gum issues. I love her and her awesome team!

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 amazing. Everything that Dr. Pattison wrote about her is correct. She is professional, knowledgeable, warm, and caring. She broke some difficult news to me about my teeth in a very empathetic but direct way, and began treatment for the problem, explaining everything as we went, thoroughly treating the problem, and minimizing discomfort as much as possible. 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.

Today was my last visit to Dr. Pattison, as I’d been referred to him solely for a dental implant. I have been absolutely thrilled with Dr. Pattison and his staff. He is probably the warmest and kindest dentist I have ever encountered. He thoroughly explained each procedure and gave immediate feedback on my healing progress. 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. I only wish that I were able to receive general dentistry at this office.

“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. The incredibly trained hygienists and Dr. Shahi have given me a newfound hope that I will retain all my teeth.”

“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.

I’ve been to other dental offices where I feel they’re constantly trying to sell me unnecessary treatment, thankfully not here. In fact, I’ve never had a better experience at a Dental office. Only things that were necessary were done. The Dental hygienist (Becky) that worked on me is amazingly talented and FULL FULL of knowledge. My goodness, I learned so much about teeth and what’s going on with them when so and so happens. I left there more knowledgeable on treating my own dental hygiene.

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).

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 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

After battling with gum issues my entire life I was thrilled to find a periodontist that truly cares about helping me. Not only did Dr. Shahi explain everything super clearly she was extremely sympathetic. I never feel like I’m being sold on unnecessary treatment. If you need a periodontist I can’t recommend Dr. Shahi enough. Her front office staff is also very attentive and so so nice! If you want your gums to be their best go see Dr. Shahi as soon as possible! –2/14/18

I saw Dr. Shahi back in February 2017. She quickly diagnosed and treated my dental problem. She is an excellent periodontist who works fast and painlessly. She is very knowledgeable and takes the time to explain dental procedures. Most of all she is caring and patient. Her staff is very nice and her office is clean. I greatly recommend her.

“Dear Dr. Shahi, I want to thank you for making my gum surgery yesterday so amazingly painless and for making me feel so relaxed and confident in your procedure. I have had no swelling or discoloration even after 2 hours in the chair and no pain at all. And, this is the day after the procedure. You are an incredible surgeon and I would highly recommend you to all my friends. Also your staff – Rebecca, Cindy and Kim – just the best! Friendly & compassionate. I felt like I’ve known all of you for years, even though we have just met. Again, thank you!”

I also received a followup call to find out how I was doing. –11/15/17

If I could leave six stars, I would. Dr. Shahi was able to diagnose and treat my dental issues so well that I continue to get compliments from other dentists on her work! She always made me feel comfortable, informed, and cared for. I believe that she is extraordinarily talented and that her genuine care was integral in the rapid and thorough healing process that I experienced. I highly recommend her if you are looking for a fantastic periodontist.

I have seen Dr. Pattison now for many years for implants. He’s simply the best. In addition to his obvious superb professional skills, he is a legitimate, warm human being.

She saw us right away even though it was getting late, was the sweetest with my child and made her feel so comfortable. She acted quickly and very skillfully. She was knowledgeable about her work and explained everything clearly to us. She saved the day for our family, and all that with a great smile and the most compassionate attitude.
I will definitely come back to see Dr. Shahi for myself and recommend her office to anyone who needs a great Periodontist!!

Amazing periodontist, fantastic support staff and office. As a general dentist that is practicing near Marina Del Rey, I always recommend her office to friends, family and patients. In my many years of practice, it’s difficult to find a surgeon that is not only skilled but kind, honest, ethical and empathetic. In LA her office can be difficult especially for my patients in the South Bay to go to but believe me, she is worth the visit. Look no further for your surgery needs! –7/18/17

Dr. Pattison has enabled me to maintain my challenging oral configuration without surgery. In addition he has provided recommendations to dentists and an orthodontist which I have found to be reliable and very competent. I feel as if his office staff are my friends, and they make my dental maintenance as easy as possible. Before becoming a regular patient with Dr. Pattison, I would request anesthetic just to get my teeth cleaned. Now I no longer feel the anesthetic is necessary. My billing and insurance are handled routinely with only minimal effort on my part. Appointment reminder phone calls are provided, which I find a great bonus.

Dr. Rana Shahi is the best! She did surgery on my gums and did a top of the line job. The recovery was simple and I healed perfectly. I appreciated her attention to detail and care. Every experience I’ve had with her to date has been smooth and perfect. She even called me 2 days after my surgery to check-in and make sure I was healing as planned. The staff that supports her was also very professional and ensured I had everything I needed. I highly recommend Dr. Rana Shahi for any procedure you may need. –7/1/17

Bottom Line: My overall experiences at this periodontist have consistently been SUPERB. If you are looking for a periodontist, you have to come here. This review is not based on one visit but on numerous visits. One of the best thing is that it is also open on Saturdays. If I could rate this place 6 stars out of 5, I would have because they save my teeth. I will not go anywhere else but here.
Experience: I came to this periodontists for numerous services: consultation, deep cleaning, wisdom tooth extraction (all 4), and tissue checkup. All of my visits I had superb experiences. Becky was the dental hygienist that performed my deep cleaning. She is friendly and nice. In addition, she is very very thorough and is passionate about what she does. You can see the passion from the work Becky performs. It is hard to explain but once you experience it, you will know. I had a great deep cleaning experience with Becky and continue to ask for Becky for future cleanings. I am sure all the other dental hygienists here are great as well.
As for my consultation, wisdom tooth extraction, and tissue checkup, these were all performed by Dr. Shahi. Likewise, my experience with Dr. Shahi was also great. Dr. Shahi was the one who gave me the treatment plan. I had all 4 wisdom teeth extracted with local numbing just recently. At first I was terrified because of all the stories from my family and friends. I can say that my wisdom teeth extraction experience was not terrifying but great and painless. I did not experience much swelling and pain the day after the extraction and would have to attribute this to Dr. Shahi’s skills.
Of course, I cannot forget the front office staffs. The front office staffs are also great, nice and friendly. You are greeted when you walk in and they are very helpful in answering my questions. As you can see, I have visited this periodontist a few times. Every time, my experiences from the front office staffs to the dental hygienists have all been great. Best of all, I have them to thank for saving my teeth.

I cannot begin to express my gratitude for Dr. Shahi. I needed to be seen urgently on a Saturday for a bad tooth infection. I contacted her medical office and she was able to squeeze me in on a Saturday afternoon, for which I am so grateful. I was so nervous but she quickly put me at ease and had a very very gentle hand. She had me out of the office within an hour and even called that evening to check on me. I highly highly recommend her.

I have been seeing Dr. Pattison for years for general periodontic services of mostly a preventive and maintenance nature. All has been well, as he has kept a good watch over my overall dental health. However, just in this last week, I had a minor dental emergency and needed to see Dr. Pattison on a more unplanned basis.
I must say, I was so impressed at first by his office itself, with the immediacy of the appointment time that was offered to me. Previously, I had only made appointments far in the future. When push came to shove, they were there for me.
I was seen by Dr. Pattison, who examined me and presented three possibilities that could have been causing my issue, the evidence that supported each possibility, and what the outcome would be in each possible scenario. He spoke to me as if he knew I had the intelligence to understand all the intricacies of his explanations, presenting his plan of how he would determine the cause of my problem, which would then indicate the recommended treatment. It was evident how much he enjoyed his work, and the commitment he had to solving and fixing my problem.
I think that, in this situation, Dr. Pattison really had the opportunity to shine. After all those years of seeing him for prevention and maintenance, I was able to see what he was really made of. He stepped right into action and demonstrated his competence and expertise.
I have so much confidence in him, which is very reassuring after having seen him for all these years, and finally, learning that I had placed my trust in the right person.
He receives my highest recommendation.

I come from an overseas country and after a long search I finally found Dr. Shahi. She was suggested by another dentist and I can only thank him for this. I had a very serious problem but Dr. Shahi and her staff were fantastic with my disease. She has a great knowledge and she is a very careful person to her patient’s needs. I live in LA for a few month and I have problem with language but Dr. Shahi is always very kind, patient and in these months I feel like home. I met many dentists over the past years but for me she is the best. –10/9/16

Dr. Shahi was amazing with my daughter. Her ‘bedside manner’ was as good as I have ever experienced. She made my daughter so relaxed as she went into surgery. Her follow up care following the surgery was first rate. When I came to yelp, I was not at all surprised to read the other rave reviews and 5 star ratings. She deserved every one! –9/25/16
09/24/2016 - yelp
I’ll start off by getting to the point: Dr. Shahi has the greatest combination of knowledge, skill and compassion of any healthcare provider I have ever experienced.
I saw Dr. Shahi due to an emergency referral from my general dentist, who had treated me on a Sunday afternoon following an accident. He wanted a more comprehensive assessment of my situation as quickly as possible, spoke with Dr. Shahi that day, and by mid-morning the next day (Monday) I was being seen by Dr. Shahi.
Dr. Shahi did a thorough exam, including a CT, and quickly was able to identify the extent of my injuries. It was clear that I would need almost immediate intervention to stabilize and reposition two teeth that had been severely displaced in the accident (which also fractured the facial bone). As it would be another two days until I could see an orthodontist, Dr. Shahi recognized that she could improve my current situation and improve my chances of saving my teeth by installing a “splint” herself. Although she is not an orthodontist, after conferring with my dentist and an orthodontist by phone, she had me back in her office 90 minutes later, expertly splinting my lose teeth. Her technique and gentle manner during the procedure were impeccable.
Beyond her knowledge and skill, I felt like Dr. Shahi was truly “by my side” during a traumatic event. Her warm, nurturing demeanor went a long way to comfort me and instill confidence that everything would be ok. She called me afterwards to check on me a couple of times over the next few days, and provided a great follow up visit after I had seen the orthodontist – just because she cares.
What more can I say? She is simply the best.

I am the worst dental patient anyone could ever imagine. After a bad experience almost 15 years ago, I stopped going to any dentist, essentially playing a kind of dental roulette and hoping that all would be well. Finally, when I was forced to deal with extensive and very painful dental problems, I was referred to Dr. Shahi who has somehow managed to resolve these issues with extraordinary expertise, gentleness and remarkably good humor. She has the gift of being able to relate to all of her patients in a way I have never experienced before. In addition, her staff is just as accomplished, and everyone makes you feel as if you are in safe hands in every respect. I feel incredibly lucky to have found Dr. Shahi just in time and plan to stop being such a baby about going to the dentist — as long as I can keep seeing her. –7/26/16

Dr.Shahi is an amazing periodontist. She is kind, gentle, and during the procedure, I barely felt a thing!!! She explained everything so clearly and knew exactly what she was talking about. I was experiencing really bad sensitivity because of gums receding so my dentist told to go see Dr. Shahi. I’m so thankful that my dentist referred me to Dr. Shahi for my gum surgery. I couldn’t believe how quickly and effortlessly the procedure went. I already recommend her to my mother and strongly recommend Dr. Shahi to everyone.

Dr. Shahi is one of the nicest people I have had the pleasure of meeting. She is very friendly and was very attentive to my needs and concerns.

I would highly recommend her to anyone!

Dr. Shahi is one of those doctors–the kind you come across and should never let go of. I went to her office with some serious oral conditions, and subsequently she had to perform two surgeries. During the surgeries, she was gentle, concerned, and checked in on my needs constantly. The same mannerisms were true post-op: Dr. Shahi was always there, immediately responsive to any of my needs. Her kind demeanor and excellent medical skills are unparalleled. I cannot imagine how horrible my health would be without her, and I look forward to continue having her as my physician.

Dr. Shahi has been my dentist through an extensive periodontal treatment over the past three years. I believe that her dedication, confidence and positive attitude were integral in the very successful outcome of my case. I had many surgeries with her and never felt anxious because she always communicated very clearly, and was so careful that I didn’t experience pain. I am forever grateful for the restoration and healing I received from her care. She is truly a talented and caring doctor!

My experience with Dr. Shahi was outstanding. She takes her work very seriously, was very caring, and had a delicate touch.
