Dr Brightleaf is a life saver. I have Sleep Apnea and snored loudly preventing my wife from sleeping. Dr. Brightleaf provided me a mouthpiece which moved my bottom jaw preventing the swallowing of my tongue. My snoring is no longer obnoxious. I have been using this appliance for nearly 6 years. The office is extremely well manned with friendly helpful assistants to answer questions, process payments, or just chat for a few minutes.

Doctor Ana Brightleaf is one of the most caring, compassionate, detailed and knowledgeable dentists, and probably the best. All of her staff including herself are very kind and friendly. She is quite a gentle dentist. I'll recommend her to anyone I know or I don't know. I'm grateful I've found her & I thank her & her staff for all the wonderful work & caring. I Love You All.

as always everyone was very nice and forthcoming and on time. Ms. Brightleaf doesn't double book and concentrates on one patient at a time. This time I had to have three teeth done. (a long overdue treatment) 2 teeth needed new fillings. And one crown had to be replaced. Which my previous dentist just didn't get right. (even when i considered him one of the best dentists in Santa Monica..) Anyways, the two fillings were done with three layers of different composites, to the mimic the teeth original and different densities (thats what i picked up and wanted to note as a short explanation.) then the tooth that had dacay underneath the crown, which had to be replaced turned out to be much bigger then anticipated and it took way longer to precisely remove all but only the infected material. Ms. Brightleaf still never rushes and keeps 200% focused to deliver the best work and she adds medication and did not charge me for part of the procedure that was $340. When work is done that includes drilling, a devise is used (forgot what it is exactly called) that keeps debris from falling down you throat and keeps your mouth open as well as adjusted, while also preventing liquids from running down. even when it feels a bit crowded at first, i like this devise since i dint have to worry about accidentally swallowing or inhaling any unwanted things; and i get used to it quickly.

For comfort her assistant keeps your lips moist with herbal lip balm. i always appreciate

the calm atmosphere at the office and between everyone working there. Some of the procedures arent that funny so i really appreciate the nice team here. Thank you

Have been a patient of Dr. Brightleaf's for several years. I trust her extensive dental skills and experience. When my previous holistic dentist retired, he recommended Dr. Brightleaf without hesitation. The staff is efficient and friendly. The office modern, clean, and holistically oriented. I appreciate that Dr. Brightleaf explains procedures and what to expect, along with the options, as well as detailed aftercare instructions. In the time I've been a patient, care has ranged from basic dental services to more extensive restorations, all handled to my complete satisfaction.

Ben did my cleaning and I liked him very much. He has a gentle, "soft touch" and excellent skills. He is also a fun personality to be around.

I would enjoy having him do the work on any of my future cleanings.

He explained to me how I could improve my own cleaning process, with better use of the the water pic. I will change to the narrow pointed pic head he suggested, and place the angle of the pic on each tooth to a 90 degree placement. I learned a lot from him and will incorporate his suggestions into my daily routine. He is a great addition to Dr. Ana Brightleaf's staff.

The advice of Dr. Towfigh has improved my life. She has a charming way of giving you instructions and dramatizing how to implement her suggestions. Extremely patient and caring, Dr. Towfigh's knowledge and experience have given me the most usable and beautiful feet I have ever had. And I really use them for jogging, tennis, hiking and just generally walking around. I would call her the patron saint of feet. Her advice has been invaluable to me. I only know her professionally but know that she is a beautiful individual both inside & out. I don't see her often--but it is a learning experience each time I visit the office. It is really a pleasure to go to the doctor. Sounds odd but true. She is wonderful.
