Been going here for 10+ years. Always been great. Dr. Schlang is a fantastic dentist with cheerful bedside manner. She also has excellent hygienists (I think that's what you call them?) and awesome receptionists. They're always on time (in my experience) and I would highly recommend them to anyone looking for a great dental office on the Westside.

I’ve been a patient of Dr. Melanie for almost ten years.  The office is open on Saturdays and that is very convenient and makes it easier to keep up with my cleanings and check-ups. Doreen always explains the billing and provides an estimate before any dental treatment. The staff here are always welcoming and provide excellent dental services.

The name should be Gentle. This is the nice place to get your teeth fixed. I recently had a cavity, and called them up. I was in and out in a flash with a great big smile. I recommend Wilshire Dental to my family and friends.
