Tremendous experience.

I've been a patient for a few years now and have always had a good/positive experience. With a great doctor and staff on board that makes you so comfortable, I know I'm in the right hands. Root canal yesterday that was painless and I'm fine the next day. Thanks to all at downtown dental!

Downtown Dental Rocks! Dr. Don, Chris, and everyone there is knowledgeable and friendly. Great Place! I highly recommend them.

~ A.H.
I went to Downtown Dental because I was experiencing tooth pain. I didn't know what to expect, but the staff made me feel comfortable about what needed to be done to resolve the problem. I DON'T like pain and they informed me that they'd do their best to make this process pain-free...and they DID. I think I've found my permanent dentist and I recommend anyone who's searching for a dentist, to try Downtown Dental. What do you have to lose, besides teeth!

~ C.P.
My dental hygienist Allison was really knowledgeable. Dr. Mungcal was thorough and listened to all my concerns. Will definitely come back!et, caring and very knowledgeable.

~ M.
It was a pleasant experience. The vibe was awesome they had music I could listen to for days. Allison my dental hygienist communicated with me the whole time. She made me feel comfortable and always had a great smile.

~ K.C.
I’ve been a client for several years now. Love the staff friendly, warm smiles as you enter. Always helpful in accommodating early morning schedule. My previous dental experience I would experience anxiety a few days prior and cancel several times before I could get my mind and body prepared for the visit. Dr. Mungcal is such a sweetheart, he and the staff make you feel comfortable and inviting. I always take reading material when I go out on errands and such. In Dr. Mungcal’s office I have never sat long enough in the waiting room to open my book. Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are very effective in scheduling appointments to avoid a patient to endure waiting and becoming anxious, and stressed. The dental hygienist is very knowledgeable. Thanks for a great smile.

~ J.
I needed a root canal and it went very smooth, no pain, no fuss, fast. Best dentist I’ve ever had.

~ M.P.
I’m one of those people who hates the dentist office but I love going to Downtown Dental in Los Angeles. The office is so inviting and all of the dental assistants make me feel welcome.The office has state of the art technology that makes the process of X-rays, diagnosis and treatment recommendations fast and easy to understand. Dr. Mungcal and his team do a excellent job of making me feel comfortable and informed. I highly recommend this Downtown Dental!

~ C.S.
OK Yelpers! This is an update 2.5 years later. As I have shared before, I’m a person who HAD a phobia of the dentist. Dr. Mungcal and the staff at Downtown Dental are nothing short of amazing. Attentive, caring, knowledge, personable are just a few words to describe them. I have experienced many hygienists before, but Aprile is simply the best. Warm and friendly, she has a way of putting you at ease. She has a gentle touch and knows her craft. I have had a LOT of work done, (too long away from the dentist) but my mouth, teeth and gums are very healthy now. I am now 14 weeks into Invisalign treatment and am very happy with the improvement I am already experiencing. If you haven’t been to the dentist in a while, you need to go to Downtown Dental. You will thank yourself.

~ K.G.
Dr and Staff are amazing…. in a World where everyone is emailing & texting he actually calls you after surgery, to see how you are doing.
~ J.P.
Nice and clean, friendly staff, and excellent doctor. I hate going to the dentist. But their wonderful staff and doctor are great at what they do. Great staff, great doctor, great office!
~ L.N.
In an emergency situation I felt staff was very helpful. I was able to get an appointment right away. The woman Jackie at the front desk was extremely helpful and took a lot of time to help me with my insurance and payment. My diagnosis was quick and well explained. They were able to squeeze me in for exactly what I needed that day. The procedure was painless and not as long as expected. I appreciate everything that this wonderful staff has done for me. I already feel relief.

Friendly, efficient dental office. Highly recommended for dental chickens.

~ S.H.
I have been through a lot with dentists. From my mother’s x boyfriend who saved her money on fillings by not using novocaine to botched wisdom tooth removal and a very painful root canal that I didn’t really think needed to be a root canal if the dentist was more careful. Downtown dental is the complete opposite of all of these experiences! Dr. Mungcal is an expert and he is very skilled with his techniques. As a wood worker I can tell if the drill skips or bounces around by the sound. Dr. Mungcal’s hand is steady and strong he never skips. I trust him! Everyone who works in his office is top notch in their field. They have the newest and greatest technology that makes the week long process of getting a crown having it made and coming back to have it installed a few hour affair. Most importantly they have me on a cleaning and check up schedule that has kept me cavity free since I started going to them. Plus everyone is so friendly and helpful. Downtown Dental is the best dental office I have been to and I recommend them to all of my friends. Seriously, many of them are now patients!

~ A.R.
Staff was amazing. Monika is the best.

~ L.S.
This dentist office is absolutely a delight to come to, the staff is very professional, kind and attentive to my needs each and every time I come for any type of treatment I have needed. They work with you with care credit and have reasonable prices for their service. I highly recommend everyone to come in for a first time treatment.

~ A.V.
A great dentist. They help me when I was in pain and needed help asap. They got me in first thing in the morning and I left feeling a thousand times better. Thanks Downtown Dental.

~ C.K.
"I have got a root canal done and in the process of getting an implant. I can honestly say that it has been painless each time. Dr. Mungcal and his staff are truly the best."

~ J.G.
MY APPOINTMENT WAS 8:30 AM SO I STARTED DRIVING AROUND 6:45 AM IN ORDER TO BEAT THE TRAFFIC. I DID NOT REALIZE THAT SOME OF THE STREETS VERY CLOSE TO MY DENTIST’S OFFICE ARE CLOSED DUE TO THE FUNERAL OF A FALLEN LAPD OFFICER. THE EMPLOYEES OF THE OFFICE CALLED ME TO GIVE ME A DIFFERENT ROUTE ON HOW TO GET TO THE OFFICE WITHOUT PROBLEMS. THIS ONLY SHOWED HOW THOUGHTFUL AND CARING THEY ARE. MY DENTIST IS THE BEST OUT THERE AND HIS STAFF MEMBERS ARE ALL VERY NICE, CARING AND VERY PROFESSIONAL. THANK YOU DR. MUNGCAL AND MY SINCERE "THANK YOU" TO EVERYONE WHO MADE MY DENTAL VISIT A PLEASANT EXPERIENCE.
~ I.A.
I’ve been seeing Dr. Mungcal for years. He is single handedly responsible for my now–gorgeous smile. His staff is so professional and caring. Aprille is absolutely the best Hygienist ever!

~ C.C.
I’ve been going here for years and it is consistently a top-tier experience. I not only know the service rocks, but it always feels like I’m visiting friends. The staff is what really makes this place. Moneeka is by far the best hygienist I’ve ever had. Still Highly recommend this place.

~ B.
You feel welcome as soon as you come in to the dental office, everybody is friendly and service is 100 per cent professional, will refer to all my friends.

~ A.G.
Almost 20 years with Don now. He’s a great dentist and a great person. And he has one of the happiest office staffs I’ve ever seen. So the feeling in the office is very warm and friendly. I mostly live out of town now, but Don Mungcal is one of the doctors I’ll keep in LA.

~ D.H.
I googled this dental and first time I came in, I loved it.

~ E.F.
I and my family have been coming to Downtown Dental for nearly 20 years ever since I moved to LA and got a referral to Dr. Mungcal. Dr. Mungcal has treated my severe dental problems(don’t ask!) with extreme professionalism and a caring, friendly way. He has been particularly flexible with payment options and insurance options. A convenient downtown location with parking; who could ask for more. Also very convenient with the short timing of appointments needed. The staff is also always very caring and professional. You know your dentist is awesome when you keep on as a patient even while moving all over the county, as we did.

~ B.L.
Downtown Dental provides excellent service. They offer the latest treatment options in oral care maintenance. I have been a patient for 10 years. I appreciate the services that I have been provided. I don’t like going to the dentist…who does, right? But, because my oral health care is important, I put my teeth and gums in the care of Downtown Dental!

~ P.T.
Growing up I had terrible jaw pains & no dentist I’d go to would fix my problem. I’d go to dentist after dentist after dentist, until I finally got fed up & stopped going to any dentist for 5 years!One day my husband found DOWNTOWN DENTAL & he swore by this place. I was a bit skeptical, but upon walking in there I realized DD was everything he promised AND MORE!!Dr. Mungcal, Aprille, Maribel, Jaquelyne, Kristin, Sara, and well EVERYONE there is super nice, super helpful, & super informative. Their quality of work is unmatched. In other words, I have NEVER met a dentist/dentist staff that was so interested in your dental well-being. THEY ACTUALLY CARE, can’t say the same about any other dentis I’ve been to. They cover all their bases & don’t cut corners. When you have an appointment with them you get their full, undivided attention, you’re not just some patient taking a seat. BEST OF ALL: THEY OFFER CARE-CREDIT PEOPLE!!!Long story short, they fixed my jaw problem by recommending Invisalign (hey two birds, one stone: I had not-so-straight teeth also). And I can honestly say now that I have NO PAIN whatsoever in my jaw & my teeth are perfectly straight!

~ D.S.
I love the attentive service and professional care that I receive at Dr. Mungcal’s office. They (everyone) are extremely professional and provide excellent (exceeds expectation) dental care. Dr. Mungcal and his staff are very informative and always take the time to answer my questions. They make feel at ease in obtaining the dental care that I need. They make me feel that patient care is their number one priority.

I am happy with downtown dental LA. We have been coming for a long time and I am really happy with Moneka.

~ A.
Downtown Dental is an amazing dental office. I came here looking for an honest, friendly office. And I found it here! My previous dentist was horrible. She was rough, over charged and I still had problems with my teeth. I came here and Dr. Mungcal was amazing. His staff is attentive and kind. They are upfront with their pricing, they tell you ahead of time which I love. I have recommended them to everyone. They offer you head phones to cancel out drilling sounds if need be, you can watch TV as they work on you to distract you, pick your own pandora station. They know me by name every time I come in or call. Honestly the best dentist!

Great Dentist and Excellent Staff"I have been a patient of Dr. Don Mungcal’s for many years – and I have always been impressed with the top notch quality of care and the first rate customer service provided by the Downtown Dental Staff.

"Classy Clinic! The Best!!!"

~ E.A.

"His work quality is distinctive I want to start by complementing the staff; their customer service is beyond excellent. They made me feel welcome and fearless..thank you to all of you. Dr. Mungcal is an excellent dentist. In my three visits with Dr. Mungcal in which two were for over three hours, he was gentle and considerate, stopping to ask if I was ok and even to ask if I needed a bathroom break. Dr. Mungcal worked on my front teeth and I am very happy with the results; he and his staff patiently helped me choose the right shape and color of my new smile. The quality of his work is distinctive. I am not embarrassed to smile BIG my teeth look beautiful. Every visit was a great experience. Furthermore, a big plus to the ceiling TV and his follow up calls."

~ S.S.

"Great friendly staff! Always makes my day!Front desk is always courteous and friendly. Waiting area is very comfortable and intimate. Going to the dentist is quite stressful for me, so everything that this office does really puts me at ease. Now I actually look forward to seeing the staff."

~ C.H.

"Went in for my regular cleaning. Everything went smoothly."

~ K.W.

"Dental hygienist was very friendly and explained processes clearly. There was a little glitch with the x-ray software and she even took time to explain why we were being delayed. Was asked a few times if I’d even had braces. I haven’t, but I didn’t think I needed them, either. Would have been good to understand why they thought my teeth could use straightening."

~ D.G.

"Aprille is amazing! She not only explained to me how to improve on brushing and flossing, but she showed me in the mirror. That is the type of service that I really appreciate as it shows she really cares about her patients. Krystal is also so helpful and always friendly with a smile on her face. I appreciate how both members of your staff interacted with me!"

~ A.S.

I would recommend these guys to everyone!"

"I liked how they took pictures of my teeth and showed me on the computer. The staff was very friendly and extremely helpful. "

~ T.H.

"I would like to express my sincere appreciation now that I have regained confidence into going to the dentist again. Prior to my recent visit it had been several years since I had seen a dentist. I’m sure that my fear in going went back to my childhood and previous unsettling and painful experiences. What a difference you and your staff made!

The day I went in for extensive dental work was painless. During the procedures if I felt pain there was a quick response to prevent it. Following the procedures there was some pain, but with the medication, it eased off. One month has passed and my teeth feel great. My fear of going to the dentist is behind me.

Last I would like to commend your staff for their professionalism. The front office made the financial aspect easy by filing insurance forms for me and offering explanation to my inquiries while the back office made ‘the chair’ a lot more comfortable than I remembered.

I look forward to my future visits to take care of my new smile.

Thanks again,"

~ R.B., Downtown Los Angeles

"This practice has been a member of 1-800-DENTIST for over 22 years. My company has sent hundreds of satisfied patients to see Dr. Mungcal. Patients love his team members too!"

~F.J. – Los Angeles, CA

"This dentist rocks! His injections are painless and his work is fast and efficient. Plus he’s downtown, on Grand, right across from California Plaza, so I can go during a business day if I have to. There are even televisions on the ceiling so you can watch TV if you don’t keep your eyes closed – Not me, however. Dr. Mungcal is so good I nearly fell asleep while he worked on my teeth. How many dentists can you say that about?"

~ Z.S., Los Angeles

"Well, I’ve been seeing Dr. Don now for quite a few years now. I truly believe he has saved many of my teeth from the grave. But, I think what he has best done for me is help me deal with the TMJ problem I have had for years. His undeterred determination to seek ways to help and relieve this condition has brought me to a place where I hardly realize I have this condition. It’s truly better than it was 15 years ago."

~ J.C., Studio City

"Don and his staff provide outstanding quality service. Everyone in the office is friendly and professional. I have been a happy client for over 12 years and want to thank Don for boosting my smile!"

~ K.V., Marina Del Rey

"Downtown Dental Cosmetic Dentistry is one of the most competent and service-oriented organizations I have had the privilege to be associated with. Their work is the best and the doctors and staff treat you like an honored guest and a member of their family. Their dental practice is just one more reason to love living in downtown Los Angeles.I have been fortunate to be a patient of Doctors Don Mungcal and Adriana Mic for a number of years. They have always been on the cutting edge of the newest and best technology available in dentistry. No matter how small or complicated the procedure, they have never been satisfied until the job was done to perfection. Their professionalism and state of the art technology is unquestionably the best.

Upon opening the door to the offices of Downtown Dental Cosmetic Dentistry, I was immediately impressed with the atmosphere of the professionalism. The added surprise behind those doors was the astonishing people that make up Team Downtown Dental. From a previous recommendation, I already knew they were the tops in their field, but what I was about to learn was the astonishing level of caring and compassion they and their staff have for their patients. These are people who are willing to go beyond the basics and extend themselves to others in an attitude of selflessness, generosity and genuineness. I have not met a more caring and conscientious group of professionals.

Thank you Doctors Mungcal and Mic, Lucy, Linda, Maricella, Grace and Maynard, for being there, for caring and making my dental appointments so enjoyable. I feel fortunate to be a patient and grateful for your uncompromising service, talent and dedication."

~ R.C., Downtown Los Angeles

"There are over a dozen dentists in walking distance from my house. I would not drive over 45 minutes to Downtown Dental if I was not 100% satisfied with the great service I receive here. There are too may dentists out there not to be picky, I pick Downtown Dental for my dental work."

~ M.L., Torrance

"Needless to say, my experience with Downtown Dental has been a very pleasant one. Dr. Mungcal and his staff have done exemplary work with regards to my dental care and has displayed the same care and concerns regarding follow-up treatment. I also recommended this group to my mother, and she too has expressed satisfaction with their complete service."

~ R.G., Sherman Oaks

"I came to Downtown dental on an Emergency basis. Not only did they see me right away, they called my supervisor to tell them approximately how long I would be out of my office! I was very impressed.I find Dr. Mungcal and his entire staff to be kind, courteous and thoroughly professional. I always look forward to seeing their smiling faces."

~ A.W., Silverlake

"I’ve been going to Dr. Mungcal for 10 years, and he’s been very kind, informative and knowledgeable. A true professional! Highly recommended. In fact, I have recommended over 10 people of my family and friends, and they love him too. I also like his dental assistant, Grace, who is always very helpful and gentle."

~ T.C., Van Nuys, CA

"Thanks so much for everything…. I may be the only person on the planet that doesn’t dread the dentist!! Best wishes"

~ C.W., South Pasadena

"This is a fabulous dentist…my favorite ever! I have been going to him for 7 years and he takes care of my teeth efficiently and cost effectively. He also has a great in house payment plan for those without insurance. I wouldn’t trust these beautiful chompers with anyone else!!"

~ N.Z., Los Angeles, California

"I have been going to Dr. Mungcal for many years now. Unfortunately, I had a very bad experience with another dentist and a friend recommended Dr. Mungcal. When I met with him, I explained the bad experience I had and how I was terrified of going to the dentist and he made me very comfortable. He is a very kind, considerate dentist and I would highly recommend him to anyone with any kind of dental problems. I do not even like having my teeth cleaned because I have found past dentists/hygienists to be clumsy and he is not, he is very gentle. He always explains what he is going to do and how you will feel. This office is also conveniently located as I work in the building next door and I can schedule an appointment and be back in my office in half an hour or so which is great if you have a tight schedule. In fact I have recommended him to many people that have worked in my office over the years. D r. Mungcal has been a lifesaver for me and I would not let anyone else touch my mouth. He is great!"

~ M.V., Downtown LA, California

"I’ve been seeing Dr. Mungcal for 4 years now, I work downtown so it is very convenient. The staff are friendly and professional. The office is very high tech – X-rays are now computerized, you see them immediately on a screen in front of you – very cool.I’ve had problems for over 10 years with TMJ – I grind & clench my teeth. Even though I wear a guard it didn’t help the TMJ, just saved my teeth from wear. But Dr. Mungcal recommended a TMJ mouthgard. I’ve been using it for 2 years now and no longer have any problems with TMJ!

I highly recommend this office."

~ K.G., Downtown Los Angeles

"What’s not to love about a dentist with an army of beautiful women attending to you as the patient.I found Downtown Dental through 1(800) dentist. I was so glad I did. I’ve had my fair share of run ins with bad dentists: poor skills, high prices, and attempts to force services that weren’t necessary just so they could make that cheddar.

Dr. Mungcal is awesome. It was the first time I’ve had digital records of my teeth. My hygienist, Monica, is funny, beautiful, and wicked when it comes to teeth! She explained things very well, and helped me get my mouth back in shape.

I’m really happy with their office.

Parking is a very narrow driveway just passed Disney Concert Hall. They validate, so no worries about that crazy uptown parking."

~ M.R., Los Angeles

"Is it possible to actually enjoy going to the dentist? Well if Dr. Don is your dentist, the answer is YES! My fears have been put to rest and my mouth has been healed. Super friendly office. Never a wait, good magazines, TV while you get your teeth cleaned and…. wait for it……. wait for it…… spa water! Thank you Dr. Don. Every time I see that 1-800 dentist commercial, I am so stoked that I am "handled"!My DH has been coming to Dr. Don for like 10 years, probably more….. scary! His teeth are amazing! I’ve been going for 2 years, since we moved downtown. Dr. Don won’t propose work that isn’t necessary or "nickle & dime" you. Very convenient building next to the Walt Disney Concert Hall and across the street from MOCA, I’ve even pulled my big old cady into the lot and had no problem parking it. FREE with validation, but I take the Dash bus now. Koo Koo Roo downstairs for lunch on your way out. Friendly security guard greets you as you enter the building. Go See Dr. Don! I am!

Tuesday’s cleaning marked exactly one week before my 4 year Downtown Dental anniversary, how do I remember the exact day I first visited DD? It was my birthday!! What a way to celebrate, right? As it turns out, I’d spend every birthday here and not fret (too much!). DD takes care without making you feel anxious. It does help when you actually take the Dr’s. advice and follow the regimen, the positive results are worth the extra work! I’ve always been proud of my smile, but now I smile even bigger! Thank you again.

Oh, and the parking attendant is helpful with finding me BIKE parking! And the Koo Koo Roo space is now empty and the Pasta Gina space is a new (another) Subway."

~ S.V., Los Angeles

"This office is nice and clean, and they validate parking. The staff is super friendly, and they always call you for updates if you need any. I’m basing my rating on the friendliness of the staff.I needed a new retainer, and they made one for me for around $350, and it took two days. I don’t have insurance, and I found that to be a reasonable price.

This place is very pleasant, and you get what you pay for, as I don’t find it cheaper than anyone else. It’s just a good place to go at a regular rate."

~ M.T., Downtown Los Angeles

"I’ve been a patient for a few years now and I will trust no one else except for Dr. Mungcal and his staff for all my dental care. Everyone from the office is super friendly and always welcoming with a smile. It is a positive experience every time I visit! Teeth cleaning sessions are usually 30 mins minimum so they are super thorough even with the most basic procedure. There are TV monitors on the ceiling for the patients to watch while work is being done. Can we say attention to detail? Yes! You definitely feel like you’re a valued customer.The office is located at the corner of Grand Ave. and 3rd Street (in the pink Promenade Towers, 2nd Floor). The entrance to the covered parking area is right off of Grand Ave. and it is validated for as long as your stay."

"Located in the heart of downtown right next to the concert hall, some people might be detoured from this place based off downtown traffic frustration but not I NOR should you! I’ve lived in Pasadena and in the Marina Del Rey area but I’ve been coming here since I was a kid and have been a patient of Dr. Mungcal’s for nearly 20 years. There isn’t much or anything at all that I can really complain about and everyone there is extremely helpful. The equipment is all very state of the art and the office is extremely well kept. I’ve heard various horror stories through the years of patients and their dentists but I can’t really say I’ve ever had one here.I’ve probably had just about every dental procedure done here and have nothing to complain about for any of them – from wisdom teeth extractions, a TMJ night guard, and treatment for some gum disease I’ve always been treated great and never once were any of my questions discarded.

In fact I once called in to talk about gum disease after the hygienist told me my gums were bleeding and I had some bad tartar build up… (a result of me not being consistent with the check-ups or flossing. word to the wise… FLOSS KIDS) The staff member that picked up heard out every one of my concerns and sat there patiently with me while I went through all my concerns and the information I found off Google. She not only educated me on the entire topic but helped me feel at ease about the entire procedure I’d go through. Now its nearly a year later and my gums are getting back to absolute tip top shape.

I HIGGGHLY recommend this practice!"

"It is very rare to find a dentist that listens to what the patient thinks are issues. Between the Doctor and I we were able to put together a reconstruction plan that helped me regain the confidence in my smile. Been under his treatment for sleep apnea as well. Didn’t realize how much better my life would be its the right mouth guard (old dentist treated only one problem the grinding) that treated multiple problems (apnea and grinding) that my jaw wouldn’t be sore in the morning nor would I wake with headaches. I totally recommend going to Downtown Dental. Oh yeah… Be current on movies great conservation start with the Doctor."

~ A.H., Los Angeles

"Visit was cool. I got a good report card finally. Thanks guys!! Always good to see you."

"I love downtown dental! They hooked me up with a great TMJ night guard and always adjust it when it’s a little out of whack."

"I’ve been going to Dr. Mungcal for over 4 years and he’s always provided great service. And now he’s more high tech with the use of computer imaging to see X-rays within seconds of taking pictures.I walked from the District office to the dental office–a quick 10 minute walk. There was a brief wait to get the office ready for their first patient, and soon enough I was sitting on a comfortable chair facing the Omni Hotel Downtown. But to my amazement there was a 21 inch computer screen in front of me with all sorts of images. The technician explained the new process of taking X-rays, and the images quickly appear on the screen for both the doctor and patient to see. AWESOME! Before, only the doctor saw the negatives, and sometimes I couldn’t tell what they were. On the computer screen the images were so clear and they came up so quickly.

The quarterly teeth cleaning went very quickly and painlessly: scraping, buzzing of the drill and slurping of the what-you-ma-call-it. Then there was the fluoride application–yummy–it tastes good. Any pain? No pain. That’s because I brush and floss regularly, just like Dr. Mungcal ordered.

Forty minutes later I was done and ready to go back to work for an important morning meeting. Then at the counter with the receptionist to schedule my August return, I was asked about the $460 balance. Excuse me? I have insurance and nearly everything is covered. There was a long pregnant pause, meanwhile I was checking my watch to make sure I had enough time to walk back to the office. Then moments later: OK, is September so-and-so OK? Yep!

That was it. There was no explanation, but there better be no surprise when I get my statement.

I love Dr. Mungcal. He’s a great doctor and I know that I’ll be returning."

~ M.B., Los Angeles

"It is very rare to find a dentist that listens to what the patient "OK, Here it goes… I have an extreme phobia of dentists. Don’t know why, always have. After 20 some odd years of avoiding the dentist, my teeth have suffered. I found this place after researching for a dentist. He was voted best of downtown. So i decided to give him a try.Now seriously, I suffer panic attacks when I go to the dentists. He was so amazing. His staff was awesome. I love the girls at the desk.

As for my teeth. I was in for a major over haul. Not surprising to me…considering I haven’t seen a dentist in years. The x-ray process is easy…using digital x-ray process. I knew I was in for major work, and the x-rays proved it. I started my "overhaul" in November of 2008. And as of June 2009, I am complete. I am now whitening my teeth for the perfect smile. I can’t say it was easy. I suffered panic attacks the whole time. But that was not due to them, it was due to my own phobias. I have to say that everyone at the offce was excellent. Dr. Mungcal is amazing. I, as a patient, do not numb (uh, is that the right spelling? LOL) And he was so gentle and caring through my entire process. I wish I could upload a pic of what my teeth looked like when I first visited and a pic of what they now look like. I am amazed at the wonderful achievements. Seriously folks. I had to go through multiple extractions, root canals, and bridges being put in. But compared to the Beverly Hills dentist I was seeing, it was far less work than what they wanted to do…and far less extractions. Ultimately, I highly recommend this place. I now can smile and feel confident, as well as know that my teeth look great. I could go on and on about the benefits I have experienced. If you want to know more, please email me.

I never thought I would be happy with my smile…but I am now, thanks to Dr. Mungcal and his staff. Seriously, if you need to talk to someone who has gone through some major dental work, I would be more than happy to tell you my experience. It has truly been amazing."

"Dr. Don Mungcal has been my dentist for over 18 years. I need to have a dentist near where I live and work in Downtown LA. Don is the BEST dentist I’ve ever had. He is patient, thorough, gentle and extremely pleasant. He always gives me the options, his recommendations, and ultimately allowed me to make the decision.Now seriously, I suffer panic attacks when I go to the dentists. He was so amazing. His staff was awesome. I love the girls at the desk.He’s not pushy, and he doesn’t talk down to you. Ultimately, he treats you like a friend. He is very welcoming and friendly. I really like that he takes his time with me and spends the time to answer all of my questions. I really appreciate his dental practice – it makes getting my dental work done easy and pleasant. Dr. Mungcal is my dentist for life!

His staff is also very hospitable and courteous. Maribel, Melinda, Kristin, Roxxane and Moneka all treat me very well and they always make me feel relaxed!

If you are in Downtown and looking for a dentist, I HIGHLY recommend visiting Dr. Mungcal and his staff at Downtown Dental."

~ K.H. – Los Angeles, CA

" I have been to many different dentists and this place, by far exceeds all my previous experiences. Starting from the minute you walk in, they treat you like, um family, as they say! Very nice and attentive to every concern.They are very clear about explaining what is happening as well as very patient and understanding when you have to make a decision. In fact, I don’t think I have been this educated before about brushing, flossing, and generally how our gums and teeth really work in my 30+ years!

Because of this experience recently, I have actually made huge improvements in my brushing pattens and have made other corrections with other habits that I have had, but this time doing it, I actually understand AND am enthusiastic about better results! That’s what it’s all about, right???

Also, if you don’t have dental insurance like me, they have payment plans and discounts that make it more bearable."

"I went to Downtown Dental recently for my first dental visit in a few years after moving (I know) and found that it’s a short walk from the Historic Core to the Financial District, on Grand Ave, above the 3rd Street tunnel. If you’re a downtowner, you’ll find that we’re lucky to have a dentist worth traveling for just a short walk away.Dr. Mongcal’s staff put me at ease the moment I walked through the waiting room door — everyone is friendly, warm, and knowledgeable. I get totally anxious at the dentist and the staff were all understanding, professional, and reassuring.

The office itself is modern, comfortable, and technologically advanced to the point that it feels like stepping into the future.

You can fill-out your patient intake information ahead of time and bring it to the office so that you can get in and out quickly. There’s a monitor on a swinging arm that the staff uses to guide you through the whole process and the office uses software to track your visits, x-rays, and dental photos. If you have x-rays done, each x-ray will appear on the screen as it’s taken. Not only is it neat, it useful when Dr. Mungcal goes over the results with you. If you have a cavity, you can zoom in and see the cavity. Though this was my first visit, I can see how the software would be useful to see how your dental health progresses after each visit.

The office is also full service dental office — they offer Invisalign, among other things — and the prices seem reasonable, particularly for the quality you get.

This was, hands-down, the best experience I’ve had with a dentist and the most thorough exam I’ve ever had. I highly recommend Dr. Mungcal and his staff."

~ N.M. – Los Angeles, CA

"I have now been attending Downtown Dental for over a year. I moved here from Europe, and was looking for a regular dentist that looks after my dental needs with professionalism and friendliness. Downtown Dental is the ideal place i found. Dr. Don Mongcal is an experienced professional dentist. He is not happy unless you get the perfect job done to your teeth and he is unsatisfied until the best job is completed. I have gone regularly this year and they are very flexible and always considering to your needs. His staff are so friendly and warm, Chris looked after me alot and she is so sweet and very professional also. Its clean, excellent equipment and a very warm environment. This is the best dentist in downtown, if not in LA. I would definitely recommend this place to anyone. I will definitely keep going there while I’m living in the USA."

~ S.K. – Los Angeles, CA

"Downtown Dental is the BEST! I’ve been a patient for 11 years, Dr. Mungcal is always friendly and proactive with his treatments. He keeps his practice current with great use of technology. The Staff is very friendly and extremely professional. They always greet me with a SMILE!I’ve been very pleased with every visit @ Downtown Dental.

Also, considering that it is ‘downtown LA’ – there’s no hassle with parking!"

~ Ms D. – Los Angeles, CA

"Dr. Mungcal is a very clever man. That goes without saying as he is a Doctor, an award winning one at that, but that’s not why I think he is clever. Nor is it because he works at a fantastic location within the Downtown Los Angeles area overlooking MOMA and with views of the Disney Concert Hall. That is true, but that’s not it. Is it because he has clearly invested in the latest technology eg digital X-rays, text message appointment reminders and lots of other shiny things? No, but again, that is true. It could be because he calmly and methodically explains what dental work you will need and why you need it. True. He does do that. But no, the reason I think Dr. Mungcal is a clever man is because of the team of staff he has employed. They are fantastic compliment to his ability and well deserved awards. Every member of his team is individually incredible and collectively outstanding. From the second you walk through the door you are welcomed with the warmest smile from the lovely Lisa. A quick witted woman with a very calming presence. Monica and Maribel, in the front office, also greet you with genuinely friendly hellos, and since Monica sorts out your insurance, I advise you smile back. Roxy is the next person you’ll see. Always smiling, always laughing and a master at X-rays. If you are having your teeth cleaned you will see April. After one visit with this girl you will feel like you have a new set of teeth. Incredible. And she has a great sense of humor which really helps, too. Kristin is another fantastic lady (can you see the pattern here?); she works fast and painlessly and explains everything she is doing and everything you need to do once you leave. Listen to this woman, she knows what she is talking about.Put simply this is the best dentist practice I have ever been to and you will not be disappointed after you go. My fear of dentists, instilled as child, have all gone and now I genuinely enjoy my visits thanks to Dr. Mungcal. After all, he is a very clever man."

~ A.J. – Los Angeles, CA

"I’ve had everything from root canals to routine cleanings with Dr. Mungcal and his staff. They are super gentle, considerate and knowledgeable. I almost fell asleep during a root canal because I had a warm fuzzy blanket, TV to watch, and I was allowed to hold my own little vacuum since I’m a little neurotic.As long as I live in LA, nobody else is getting near my teeth!"

~ J.D. – Los Angeles, CA

"Dr. Mungcal is the most professional dentist I have ever met.He has given me a smile that is beyond excellent… eveyone i meet the first compliment I receive is on my smile..

I will recommend Downtown Dental to anyone who wants a "Star Quality Smile"

The staff is so efficient and the office is very clean… I love the fact that he has ceiling tv’s and is always wanting to improve your smile.. Thank you Dr Mungcal for caring about your work and your clients.."

"I am a legit Patient at this practice. The Doctor is amazing - educated, skilled and patient. Allison, my Dental Hygienist, is really friendly, knowledgeable and proactive about her patients' oral health. In my experience, the office staff at Downtown Dental is always professional, friendly, and thoughtful about my time. Plus, they offer reasonable financing! If you're honest about your budget (for people like me who don't have dental insurance), they can often work with you to stay within budget. I also learned that they use the best equipment in their field and staff gets training often on new dental techniques. If you are someone who works, resides or likes to visit Downtown - this is an especially excellent place to see the dentist periodically.

Downtown Dental is a fantastic Dental practice in the heart of the city. They are located near LA's Cultural hub of museums, concert halls and the like (The Broad, MOCA + more ). But don't let all that (magic) discourage you from making your appointment, because traffic is usually very smooth on Grand and getting in and out of their secure and validated parking lot (in their building) is a breeze. They also have 2 e-car charging stations if that's how you roll. If you work in DTLA, like many, you can even get a lunchtime cleaning!

Sidebar: The office is located inside a gorgeous apartment building, full of high end furnishings, accentuated with stunning street art. You may have even passed by & seen the Subway flags at street level- the dental office is right upstairs. It's worth a try, especially if you want great oral health, love art, culture and the city!"
"Still the best I've ever been to! The entire staff is more than knowledgeable & helpful!

Don't waste your time going to other places, this dentist & his team are your best bet!

They are courteous, flexible, and above all: PROFESSIONAL."
"What an amazing staff and dental team!!

I had four front crowns and 2 root canals done all in about 3 hours! It was pain free! Dr Mungcal was fast and I didn't feel a thing! People compliment my teeth all the time! ...Little do they know they're fake! Very grateful!!! I am in Invisalign now and love how it stopped me from clenching and grinding my teeth! My teeth and gums are healthy because of all the amazing dental work they have done and continue to do!! Oh ...And they offered nitrous which made the whole experience awesome! Go here if you want dental work done right!!"
"Downtown dental made my cavity experience as painless as possible, and the technology they use is so up to date and accurate.

The staff are also very friendly and know the best habits for having a healthy mouth.
So glad I started going here!"
"Absolutely the best dental office! In all reality I used to hate going to the dentist I would cancel my appointments at my old Drs office all the time !! But the Hygienists and the staff in general are so welcoming and make you wanna keep coming back. They are always ready to deliver and Allison did an amazing job on my teeth cleaning thank you for that"
"This review is long overdue. I've been a patient at downtown dental since 2005 and have had nothing but positive experiences. I've had quite a bit of dental work and when I had a cracked crown recently, they scheduled me the next day and replaced it at no charge. They would have scheduled me that day but sadly, I'm no longer a patient as I've moved to NorCal. I felt like they really went out of the way to accommodate me and I appreciate that! Thanks guys!!"
"Great practice, the doctors and assistants are very professional, helpful and pleasant. They make dental appointments almost enjoyable...not something I thought possible!

Katie the hygienist is not only gentle, professional and very professional but also inspiring. She makes you want to have the best gums in Los Angeles.

Thank you guys!"
"The team at Downtown Dental are the best! They have done both an implant and Invisalign for me. They keep me informed about all the steps and always get me in and out quickly! I love that they can do everything right in their own offices too."
"My story is: I chipped a took eating cereal! Who does that!?! (The cereal was crunchy I'll admit). I went to Downtown Dental and Dr. Mungcal evaluated my situation and realized my bite needed to be adjusted. I grind my teeth at night also so the combination of it all was wearing my teeth down. He recommended invisalign to align my bite. I was hesitant because it's pricey but...trust me...it was SO WORTH IT!!! 8 months later, my bite is fixed and aligned and my teeth are straighter which is a bonus! I am only 34 and I want to keep my teeth healthy and strong for a long time! Dr. Mungcal and the entire staff are amazing and took GREAT care of me. You can rest assured you will be taken care of by them!"
"Came to downtown dental with my husband for his first dental implant. He was very nervous on getting this procedure done.. From his experience he said the staff were super friendly made him feel very welcomed..the dentist made his procedure quick and painless my husband didn't even need his medication for the swelling or pain ... Highly recommend... We Will be coming here from now on for our dental needs."
