“Like everyone else I hate going to the dentist. However, I was long overdue for a regular checkup, so I decided to check out Dr. Ovanseian's office. All I can say is BEST DENTAL EXPERIENCE I have ever had. I've already returned 2x and each time there was no wait. I get taken care of almost immediately. Nice, clean and modern practice office! The staff here is very attentive and helpful. I had to switch my appointment last minute and they were willing to work around my schedule, but best of all everything was such a SMOOTH AND PAINLESS PROCESS. One of my appointments involved 2 fillings and I was dreading it because I am not one to take pain. However before I knew it, Dr. Ovanesian had finished the whole procedure! I didn't even feel the slightest pain!! All and all, I definitely recommend Dr Ovanesian and his staff. Best dental experience by far.”

“A few weeks go, I went to Southwest Dental to see about having a new top denture made for me. My old one was over 20 years old and I could no longer keep it in my mouth. My first impression was how clean the offices were and the reception area is warm and inviting. The staff is very professional and friendly. Dr. Ovanesian is excellent and immediately put me at ease. I now have a beautiful upper plate that stays in place. My special thanks to Karolyn and her crew, they are great. I will recommend this place to everyone who asks. Thanks again.”

— Peggy Butler, Yelp

"In my 60 years, this was my first positive experience with a dentist. Southwest Dental helped me get through the holidays with a temp repair of a cracked denture. They put up with the shenanigans of my insurance company, and gave me a beautiful new set of dentures quickly and at a very fair price. They even refunded the payment the insurance company eventually made to me immediately. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable. The Dr has a great manner and is honest and kind at the same time. There is not better dentist in the Coachella,Valley especially if you have my stupid insurance."

— Mark S., Yelp

"I asked at the office of RV park we live in & she said Southwest Dental. I called & they got me in first thing in a.m. Wonderful Dr. & all of the staff, made me feel cared for. Then a few weeks later a front tooth broke, I called the emergency number & Dr.Ovanesian called me right back. He asked me to be there at 8:00 on Monday. I was very traumatized at losing a front tooth...Dr. O was so very kind. He told me the options & assured me he could fix it...he did! As we age our teeth do also. I would recommend SouthWest Dental to everyone any age! Thank you Dr. Ovanesian & staff!"

— Patti L., Yelp

"While on vacation, a crown came off. I received prompt & superior professional attention to my dental needs. Dr. Ovanesian filled the cavities which showed up on the X-ray & replaced the crown. I am pleased with my reasonably priced fillings and crown. Excellent! Thank you! I am back home and my crowned tooth feels great!"

— Karl R., Yelp

"Dear Dr. Ovanesian, thank you for the great dental experience. From the moment I stepped in to your well manicured office I was welcomed by your friendly staff and felt comfortable. With your top of the line equipment and your knowledge of dentistry, I was pleased with a treatment plan that was both honest and reasonable from my initial x-rays and exam to the cleaning and crowns, zoom whitening and night guard could not be more pleased. Even though I am only in the desert during the winter months, you are my new dentist and i will make every effort to see only you much."

— Julie Homes

"I would like to give Dr. Grisha Ovanesian and his staff an A+ grade. SouthWest Dental is a friendly and professional dental office and has provided care for myself and my family. My most recent experience has been to get dental crowns and some bridge work done. Without exception the staff has been extremely helpful from the front office to the back. I LOVE MY NEW TEETH AND I AM SMILING AGAIN."

— P.G. Carr

“Dear Dr. Ovanesian, I was so impressed with the experience I had at your Dentistry, I had to express my feelings in writing. In my 87 years, and having been to a dentist a time or two, to say the least, I have to rate you, and your assistants and staff to be the very best. NUMBER 1! your commitment to perfection is the Epitome of Dentistry with care. I am so please I'm going to recommend you to all my friends. If needed to be, I'd drive them out to you myself.”

"While on vacation in Cathedral City, I experienced pain from two of my teeth and required emergency dental care. SouthWest Dental understood the emergency and saw me immediately. The problems I was having resulted in two root canals and a crown. Dr. Ovanesian and his staff were always courteous, friendly and professional. I received excellent dental care in Dr. Ovanesian's office and I highly recommend SouthWest Dental in Cathedral City to anyone needing dental care. Thank you, Dr. "O" and staff!"

— Judy Nail

"Dear Dr. Ovanesian, I was just compelled to write you this letter and thank you for the excellent care you provided me in the last few weeks while making a new partial, a new bridge and nine crowns. I life my last dentist because of his personality was like that of a wet mop and other concerns. I felt incredible comfortably with you from the first moment, you're easy to talk to, funny an showed concern at every step of the process plus I thank you for accommodating me time wise because I informed you when I would leave the valley for the summer months. I must also praise you for the great gals you employ who all became like my best friends, Caroline, Herlinda and that sweet Jennifer and of course you in house Lab technician, Mike, did a great job as well. I will certainly help promote you at Outdoor Resort Palm Springs as well as Desert Shadows next door where we also own property. What is left to say but keep up the good work."

"Today is the second day of my new permanent dental implant bridge. I am AMAZED and sooo HAPPY at the comfort and ease it was to finally get my "teeth" after the long waiting process after the extractions for my gums to heal. Your counrtesies are greatly appreciated. Thank you Dr. Ovanesian and your fantastic team for their professionalism and sensivity to my needs. I see you all as my dental family. I will sincerely recommend you to my friends."

— Betty Critser-Newman

"Dear Doctor, Karolyn, Lorie and Mike, Just wanted to let you know how much I appreciated everything you did for me. Besides making it possible for me to eat again with no pain and smile when I want to, you have helped me to almost forgive my last dentist. The four of you are so good at what you do. It gave me faith again that there are still caring people in the world and I really needed that. Hopefully, I will see you soon. But, if I don't I will always remember the four of you. Thank you so much."

— Judy Bowers

"Good day, Truly I can not praise Grisha Ovanesian, D.D.S. and his offices enough. Having traveled extensively and lived in a variety of cities I am often challenged with finding a dentist whom I trust with my teeth. I am most particular on who works on them; even a simple cleaning requires exactness and care. So I can assure you if I take the time and energy to write a letter of recommendation it has substance and is worth a read. I was referred to Grisha by lady friends of mine who live in San Fransisco but travel down to Palm Springs for their dental care. Having recently moved from Hollywood CA I was very much spoilt by my Beverly Hills dentist and thought him irreplaceable. Gosh was I surprised at how amazingly skilled and friendly Grisha and his staff are. Professional yet personable. Great Combination! So for anyone reading this do make the visit to Grisha Ovanesian, D.D.S. you will be delighted with the results."
