How was your experience with the doctor?I had a lovely first experience with Dr. Englund from start to finish. She is so friendly and approachable; she finds a way to be relatable to anyone she is taking care of. I went in for a simple cleaning and exam, but will be returning in a few weeks for a small follow-up procedure. I've been very fortunate to have few dental issues in my lifetime, but Dr. Englund clearly explained everything to me, including advice about how to improve my dental wellbeing moving forward. The facility was very comfortable and chic and the staff friendly and helpful as well. I would strongly recommend this practice!

How was your experience with the doctor?I get very nervous about visiting the dentist for any reason. This Dentist was very nice and I was very comfortable. Everything was explained thoroughly to me including my treatment options. They also informed me the day before about how much my insurance would cover and what I would need to pay, which alleviated a lot of stress for me. 5 stars all the way

How was your experience with the doctor?I recommend Dr. Englund, especially if you need someone who has empathy and has a way of describing things positively. She is great at solutions for whatever issue you may have. My last dentist would really point out scary things in a way that made my stomach knot, but Dr. Bethany was able to talk about everything in a way that helped without any drama and did an amazing job. More than just professional and capable, she brings a very human side to her practice that makes you feel you are really getting thoughtful care and time is being taken to do the right thing. So refreshing after being rather run over at my last dentist who missed a lot. Dr. Bethany gave me a very thorough exam and I felt it

How was your experience with the doctor?Have now been to Dr. Englund several times and have been very happy with the service and treatment received. She's very warm and friendly and is careful to explain exactly what's she's doing and whether or not something is needed in the immediate, or if it can wait until the next exam.

How was your experience with the doctor?I would highly recommend Dr. Englund, she is fantastic and this was by far the best experience with a dentist I've had since I've been in LA. The office is wonderful, staff great, and Dr. Englund is an absolute pleasure. I've seen 5 different dentists since moving to LA 5 years ago, trying to find one that I liked, and I'm certain Dr. Englund is the best.

How was your experience with the doctor?Amazing experience and I am not someone who enjoys the dentist AT ALL. It was totally painless and fast. Even got to watch TV! I felt very informed of everything being done and our next steps to keep my teeth healthy and clean. I also really loved that I wasn't lectured about what I have been doing wrong but just suggestions and solutions. I have had many dentist leave me feeling embarrassed to even go back or go in the first place. Not the case here. Office was also very clean and soothing.

How was your experience with the doctor?I usually hate the dentist, but Dr. Englund made it as painless as possible after not being in for a cleaning for probably close to five years. I thought I was going to need lots of work but after a good cleaning I left feeling better than ever! There's still some work that needs to be done but nothing Dr. Englund can't fix! Thanks for making me feel great about my smile again!

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a great first experience with Dr. Englund. She was very professional and ensured I was comfortable and as pain-free as possible. I like that she walked me through in details each of my problem areas and then prioritized them for me in terms of which were urgent fixes and which I could potentially wait on and see if there was improvement. She also didn't shove any products or treatments down my throat and instead just gave me the facts. I would recommend.

How was your experience with the doctor?I would highly recommend Dr. Englund. I am definitely not a fan of the dentist's office but Dr. Englund makes you feel very comfortable. You can watch TV while they take x-Rays and clean your teeth which helps take your mind off of the visit if you are nervous. She gives a full report on your teeth and walks you through all processes!

How was your experience with the doctor?I have never been to a dental office where I can choose what music to listen to while I am getting my cleanings. And that's not even the half of it. I could even watch Netflix! Plus, Dr. Englund was super nice and I didn't feel overwhelmed at all about going to a new dentist. I have a few fillings I had to go back for but scheduling was so easy! I go to school everyday so its hard to find a good time without me missing class but they are open Saturdays too! Dr. Englund is the best!

How was your experience with the doctor?After two visits, Im very happy with my decision to go with Meridien Dental. The staff is very friendly, the office is clean. They seem about as cool as you can ask for. Like many people, I'd put off going to the dentist for too long, but there was no judgement or guilt. Dr. Englund just a plan of action that was put together to make up for lost time. I'm looking forward to having a healthy smile and hopefully being a long time patient of Dr. Englund.

How was your experience with the doctor?I had a dental emergency and I made an appointment to see Dr. Englund the same day. The office was really clean and I was seen right away. I got to see the Walking Dead as I got my filling done. Everything went really smoothly considering it was an emergency. Staff was great. I will be returning to see Dr. Englund for a new patient exam next week.

How was your experience with the doctor?If you are looking for a dentist that makes an appointment and does not have you sitting in the waiting room long, this is the place to go. I use my lunch hour for my appointments. No more taking hours away from work and to top it off Dr. Englund is awesome! How often do you leave the dentist feeling relaxed. I will definitely be coming back to continue my treatment with Dr. Englund

How was your experience with the doctor?Dr. Englund is really personable and professional. I came to her after I visited a dentist who wanted to do a TON of work. I got a sense that this dentist wanted to upcharge me. But Dr. Englund gave me a really honest assessment of the work I'd want to get done and it was a lot less than that previous dentist. Dr. Englund has a great personality and does great work, so I cannot recommend her enough.

Extremely kind and makes sure to walk you through her process – great for people who get a bit nervous in the dentist's office. She is also very efficient, yet accommodating. The office was very nice and there is convenient street parking near by. I'll be coming back!
