Here are a few of our favorites…

Dear Dr. Saleh:

I wanted to take a moment to send a letter telling you how much I appreciate all the good work you have done on my teeth. When I came to you in 2003, I had not been to the dentist in approximately five years. I was in need of several crowns and several fillings and I was in pain. I was delaying going to the dentist because I had an extreme fear of dental work and dentists in general. I have had negative experiences in the past.

I am so thankful a friend referred me to you. You have been the best dentist I have ever seen. You are conscientious and skilled. For the first time in decades I no longer fear the dentist. You even gave me almost painless shots – I didn’t know that was possible! Although I did not relate it to my teeth, I was also experiencing a lot of tension in my neck and shoulder areas. You recommended a night guard. Frankly, I did not believe it would do anything, but I thought I would give it a try. I can’t tell you how much of a difference it has made. I sleep better and most of the tension has gone away. I would have never thought it would have provided such a benefit.

Again, thank you for taking away my fear of the dentist and doing such a good job on my teeth. Instead of waiting five years to go back, I now diligently care for my teeth because of you.

Very Truly Yours,

 “I’m a big fan of Dr. Saleh! I have been driving from the Valley to her office for my dental care since January 1992. I’m a loyal patient who thinks the drive, though a pain, is worth it because I believe the care and attention she gives me is first class.

Dr. Saleh whitened my teeth and it is no exaggeration to say that I have received compliments ever since. My teeth are slightly brittle, but she has held them together for years now. The caps and inlays and fillings are flawless.

I have joked with her that when I am in the coffin at my wake, people will comment on how great my teeth look, but wonder why the rest of me has deteriorated so badly. She is always pleasant and smiling, and also laughs at my jokes without charging extra. I know I can be a little difficult on occasion, but she is always kind and patient and willing to spend a little extra time explaining everything she does. You can tell she takes her work very seriously and pays a lot of attention to details.

You could do much worse, but you would be hard pressed to find a better dentist. I recommend her wholeheartedly without hesitation.”

“My name is Sunshine Barcindebar and since 2004 I have had Diabetes Type I. By 2006 not only was my health an issue, but also my teeth had begun to deteriorate quickly because of the diabetes.

In the course of my dental problems, I saw many dentists. Not one of them addressed my needs and concerns or listened to what I wanted. They were only concerned with what they thought I should have.

Then, my daughter found me this really wonderful dentist, Dr. Saleh. She is very professional, friendly, and has much compassion for her patient’s needs and wants. She sat with me and listened to all my concerns, what I wanted and answered all my questions. Then she discussed all aspects of my dental treatment with me. She told me what the cost would be and how long all of my dental work would take. She even contacted my diabetes doctor, with whom she reviewed my medical history, to make sure my health would not be jeopardized any further.

There are no words that could express how good of a dentist Dr. Saleh is. When I first came to see Dr. Saleh my teeth were so bad that I would not even smile, and if I did I would put my hand in front of my mouth, so no one could see how bad my teeth were. I have always felt that I had a bad smile, until now. When I look in the mirror and see my new smile, it makes me want to cry because my smile is so pretty now. Even friends and family comment on how much younger I look.

If you are looking for a good dentist who is honest and whom you can trust with your smile, I highly recommend Dr. Saleh to you and all your family and friends. Thank you Dr. Saleh for making my smile so pretty.”

“My teeth were in terrible shape and I was reluctant to go to the dentist in fear of embarrassment. So I allowed them to continue to get worse. Like many people, I did not want to hear what I had done wrong, but only wanted to know how to fix the problem at hand and that’s what I received when I was introduced to Dr. Saleh and her staff by my sister who is also a patient. They put me at ease right away wanting to get me to smile again which I really had not done in awhile without covering up or turning away to hide my teeth.

They got started by treating the teeth that could not be saved and then working on the ones that could be saved. With every visit I could see the difference. I was actually starting to look forward to my appointments, which I never thought I would but with new teeth being bridged onto my existing ones, you can understand my enthusiasm about getting it done. My smile is restored now and throughout the whole experience Dr. Saleh kept my pain and discomfort to a minimum. She and her staff have always treated me like a person and not a file # like other dentists have done in the past.

I received a second chance with finding a dentist I could put my trust in and everyone deserves a second chance, especially when it comes to your health or a loved one.”

Steven Gage

“For years I went to the same dentist who I thought was giving me good care. I had regular cleanings and checkups.

In 2005, I switched to DoctorDr. Saleh and she discovered that I had gum problems due to the lack of care from my previous dentist. Dr. Saleh thoroughly explained everything and used visual aids to help me understand what was happening with my teeth and gums.

Dr. Saleh is also very gentle, to the point that I can¹t even feel the shots! She is extremely knowledgeable about all the procedures and she saved my teeth. I am very grateful for her expertise and I highly recommend Dr. Saleh to anyone.”

Kim Sison

“I have been a patient of Dr. Saleh’s since March of 1995 and will continue to be her patient for a lifetime. I chose Dr. Saleh, and continue to choose her, for her professionalism, her thoroughness, her knowledge, and her genuine care and concern for her patients and their dental health.

Dr. Saleh is a perfectionist, has great attention to detail, and was happy to go beyond the call of duty by helping me with some difficult decisions related to my orthodontic care.

I have referred many of my friends to Dr. Saleh with total confidence and they, too, will be patients for life. Thank you Dr. Saleh, and thank you to your excellent staff for the exceptional care you provide.”

Lynette Luis

“I have been a patient of Dr. Saleh’s since March of 1992 and during this time, she has always treated my dental needs with the utmost care providing the highest quality of dental care available, always maintaining a high degree of integrity, and honesty.

She is a true professional and to this day has never had to re-do any of her dental work. I have recommended her services to many friends and associates and will continue to do so in the future.

If you require high quality dentistry, Dr. Saleh is an excellent choice.”

“Deciding to go to and picking Dr. BitaDr. Saleh as my new dentist was a trying choice that I did not take lightly. That is why I am so happy to say, for me, my choice in picking her was perfect in every way.

I was made to feel very comfortable from the very first appointment and was told I would like Dr. Saleh very much. This was by her very own receptionist/staff person as soon as I arrived for that first appointment in April, 2006. But, I was holding out my opinion until I saw the truth of that for myself. I was not disappointed in any way. Dr. Saleh is truly an expert in her field and is very “tuned in” to the patient’s needs. I just cannot say enough for my very positive experience there.

I have mentioned to Dr. Saleh more than once that dentistry has changed so much since I was a kid. I am now approaching 60 and am so glad that I have found a dentist who is just fabulous in her care for my comfort and her honesty about my dental needs. While being treated there, I was never “in the dark” with anything regarding my dental care. She told me from the beginning that I needed some work to bring my dental health to good condition. Dr. Saleh delivered in every way.

I am thrilled to have chosen her to do my dental work. She’s not just the best but is WAY ABOVE the rest. You will be very happy with choosing Dr. Saleh to care for your important dental work. She is my dentist for life! “

“I have known Dr. Saleh since 1985. We were both in the same class attending USC School of Dentistry. I have referred many patients to her (including my mother) and I am her patient also. Her office is a pleasure to be in and she does a great job!”

“Dr. Saleh has been my dentist since July of 2000. When I first came to her, I was a fearful patient. She had several methods of calming my nerves and making me feel more at ease in what I thought at the time, the dreadful dentist’s chair! Dr. Saleh gives her patients a warm, caring and very personal touch.

I decided to take my 9-year-old son, who had been traumatized from previous visits to a Pediatric Dentist, to see Dr. Saleh. He has been seeing Dr. Saleh since 2003. He has had to have some procedures that would frighten any young child, but went without hesitation because he is very comfortable with Dr. Saleh.

Her staff is also very personable and they do not “double book” appointments so you are never waiting on her. She understands the importance of your time. She has all the latest technology available and takes the time to go over all your options with you so that you understand completely what needs to be done.

I have the option of an HMO plan, but choose to pay more for my PPO plan because I wouldn’t see any other dentist. Dr. Saleh and her staff are well worth it! She cares about your dental health and your SMILE!”

Erin Lincke

“I have been a patient of Dr. Saleh’s since February of 1992 and have nothing but great things to say about her practice. I think most people naturally fear visiting the dentist. Consequently, many people simply don’t bother obtaining preventative dentistry which ultimately can lead to major problems down the road.

Dr. Saleh has a comforting way about her, which takes away much of the anxiety. Her blend of professionalism, “chair side” manner, and skill make her a dentist who I would recommend to anyone.”

Rick Hadley

“I’ve been coming to Dr. Saleh since May of 2005 and have had a very positive experience during each of my visits. I have never had to wait very long to be seen, which is not the case with my other doctor’s visits where I often have to wait 30 minutes to an hour!

The entire staff is extremely nice, courteous, & helpful. I am made to feel welcome at every visit. I have also received excellent guidance in regards to financial and insurance questions. Scheduling is a breeze and I can get appointments that are suitable to my schedule. The office is in a very convenient location and is very easy to get to.

Most importantly, my dental health has improved dramatically due to the recommendations and care provided to me. Overall, I’m very happy with the service that I have received from Dr. Saleh and her staff.  I highly recommend them to anyone looking for quality dental care.”


Cesar Ibarra

“Effective, efficient and loving – these are the qualities I like in a person who serves me. Dr. Saleh has all of these qualities and more.

I always know she will give me the facts and if she feels I need a specialist in some area she will tell me so. I always feel she has my best interests in mind and heart. She knows I want to live a full, long, productive life and her interest and care for my teeth supports my wishes.

Dr. Saleh has been my dentist since 1992 and I do recommend her to friends and associates with complete confidence.”

Leni Lawatch

“While in Utah, I chipped a tooth. I knew that I would return to S. California the next day so I telephoned Dr. Saleh’s office and they accommodated me by giving me an appointment that very next day.

That was several years ago and I would never consider using any other dentist. She provides the highest quality of dental services in a comfortable environment. She and her staff make me feel like family and have successfully dispelled all of my fears of dental visits.

“I strongly recommend her to anybody in need of excellent dental care.”
