Dr Pruitt is the best dentist I’ve ever had. She is reliably thorough and does great work. She has an excellent staff. I highly recommend her.

Dr Pruitt is gentle, professional, and the best dentist I have experienced in Los Angeles after trying out a long string of different dentists. Her staff is terrific and she is extremely honest. I highly recommend this practice.

"I think you guys are great. I have always had a tremendous fear of dentists and dental offices but this office has done an awesome job making me comfortable. Your office is clean, your staff is courteous, friendly and welcoming."

I have to say your staff couldn’t be friendlier. Everyone you come in contact with always greets you and makes you feel very comfortable. Mary is great and I've been seeing her for over 12 years now. She has never hurt me like some hygienists have in the past. She makes me feel like a friend and not just a patient. Your staff far exceeds any staff in any of my other doctor’s offices in every way.
