My appointment was with the hygenist(Brittany)....excellent!!
in Inglewood, CA |
I always enjoy my visits to Dr. Downs. It's definitely a relaxed family atmosphere and my hygienist Brittany is the best! The tunes from the Wave play from speakers and you always have a beautiful view of the planes coming into LAX from any window. I made the mistake of going to another dentist (trying to save some dollars), but soon realized there is no comparison to Dr. Downs and his team and as soon as I couldn't switch back to my PPO I did. Thank God! And thank you Dr. Downs! :)

I wouldn't trade my downs family for nothing in the world! They are AWESOME AND ALWAYS MAKE YOU FEEL LIKE FAMILY! I suffer from anxiety and they make me feel at ease! THAT SPEAKS VOLUMES AND THE KICKER IS I NEVER HAVE TO TAKE A VOLUME WHEN HE WORKS ON ME???? DOWNS #1

Upon leaving the office I immediately called my friend and thanked her for the referral. The office staff were professional and friendly from the phone appointment through my departure. The office is very well kept and utilizes modern technology. Dr. Downs was very attentive, patient and thorough. Pricing was MUCH better than I braced myself for. 1,000% satisfied.

Dr Downs and Dr Brown Your office is very warm and friendly , and you guys have a great staff, and it was a pleasure to meet Dr Brown. You guys rock in my book!
in Downey, CA |
Today was my six month cleaning and what a great experience. I told the hygienist that if I just get out of my head about my nervousness of coming to the dentist and let her do her job all would be well. We both laughed and she made me feel more relaxed.

Welcoming environment with meticulous professionalism!

This was my first visit for a one-quadrant deep-cleaning. I have never had a better experience with this procedure -- NEVER! Although I was apprehensive before starting the procedure, I am now ready to do all the other three at once! OK, maybe exaggerating just a little. Thanks to Dr. Brown for making this as easy as possible, and thanks to the staff for being so very friendly and courteous.

If you are looking for a Dentist that will be upfront and honest with you without being rude..Dr. Downs is the best. Everyone on the staff is very friendly and will take time to have a converstion with you that extends beyond business. I have had many bad experiences with dentists but after the first visit I knew that Dr. Downs was a dentist I could trust. I rarely give 5 stars to any business but they deserve it.

Dr. Downs and his staff is very good at calming you down from your fear of the dental procedure.
in Los Angeles, Ca |
His office is always professional and he treats me like family. Reminds of the old days when doctors made house calls. I am very fortunate to have such a caring Dentist.
in Los Angeles, CA |
I just came from the dental office and as usually the experience was great. I have been going to Dr. Downs for roughly 28 years; even when away at college, I would schedule my dental visits during my home on my school breaks. Dr. Downs take pride in his work and wants the best for his patients, not insurance companies. The dental hygienist are top notch ( your teeth feel and look clean) and the staff is friendly. And, no I was not paid to write this review and I am a real patient.
in Carson, CA |
DR. Downs is very professional and kind, he explains the procedure before hand,not after you get there. I never have any pain after the lidocaine wears off. Staff are freindly and courteous. I've been a patient of Dr. Downs for over 20yrs. I wouldn't go anywhere else, there like family.
