What Our Patients Say


Joyce Sachs

To Whom It May Concern,

My husband, Dr. George Sachs, and I would like to recommend our dentist Dr. Tomas Anderkvist. Through almost two decades, he has provided us with expert dentistry and guided us to health and happy smiles. Last year I decided to brighten my smile with veneers. I have never been so pleased with any other cosmetic decision I have made.

Dr. Anderkvist's office is run with great efficiency and with a capable and friendly staff. As a child, I dreaded going to the dentist. Now in my later years, I look forward to seeing Dr. Anderkvist


Renee Zawawi

I have been a patient of Drs. Anderkvist and Tabachnik for two years. I was referred by a friend who is a patient of the office and knew about the problems I was having due to the ill-fitting veneers done by my prior dentist.
The veneers were constantly chipping off and causing my gums to bleed. I was really upset and saddened by the experience.
My friend had said so many nice things about Dr. Anderkvist that on Valentine's day, I decided to see the hygienist for a cleaning because my gums were bleeding and hurting so much I couldn't even kiss my boyfriend. His hygienist made me realize that the situation was not as bad as I had thought, and assured me that they would help.
Dr. Anderkvist and his staff are the most caring professionals that I could have ever imagined; I felt I was visiting my family, and not my dentist. Dr. Anderkvist and his hygienist began treating my gums and teeth, and I saw immediate improvement. I now go for regular visits and my gums continued to get healthier; there is no more bleeding or pain when I brush and floss my teeth.

I still had to deal with the continuous chipping and had to consider a cosmetic procedure which included veneers. I was so afraid of the procedure because of my experience with my prior dentist, but after consulting with the doctors, I decided to get custom veneers on my upper teeth.

The procedure is complete, and I can't believe how great my gums look and feel and how natural looking my teeth


G.S.

Great dentist, very talented. This is where you want to be if you need perfect looking crowns, veneers, especially on the front teeth.

He is meticulous about creating a natural look. He seems to be able to solve any problem. I've found that if I don't love the way a tooth looks, he keeps working at it until it's perfect.

Dr.Nadia is also very good. So upbeat and friendly, Always finds a way to ease nerves, and always has nice things to say.

If you're afraid of shots you can ask the doc to use The Wand. It's a device that offers a comparatively pain-free way of getting your tooth numb. For nervous patients, he has nitrous, but only if you ask.


Heidi Schanz

Let me first start by saying I had been asked countless times by dentists over the years to get veneers and I always categorically rejected the entire subject because I hadn't ever seen any that I liked. That being said, when I saw Dr. Anderkvist's before and after book, I was impressed but nothing compared to how much I love my own!

You cannot tell that I have veneers! Not only is Tomas an Artist, he is also one of, if not the nicest dentist in L.A. and that goes for his entire staff!!! I have an attachment to their whole office that is unheard of they just take such good care that you can't help but kind of fall in love with them.

I recommend him to everyone I meet. You know all the sayings and gripes people have about going to the dentist? They disappear when you get Tomas!


Kathleen Graham

My dental implants make a profound difference in my appearance. The implant surgeon (now quite famous) recommended I interview a number of dentists for the restorative work and I chose Dr. Tomas Anderkvist from those he suggested. it was a perfect match and I posed a most difficult challenge. The two professionals engineered the best result and Dr. Anderkvist matched my few remaining teeth to the implants by bleaching and veneers.

More than 15 years have passed. I moved away but return to Los Angeles on a regular basis to see Dr. Anderkvist and his staff. A priceless advantage of this annual visit is the constant vigilance Dr. Anderkvist provides to keep my teeth and implants healthy.

A surprising benefit is the minor adjustments he is able to occasionally make to compensate for the fundamental structure change of aging to my face and mouth. The result of adding slightly (a millimeter or two) to the structure of my teeth offsets the usual droop of the mouth, thin lips and hollow cheeks. The small adjustment makes my lips appear fuller, lifts the corners of my mouth by subtly pushing the lips back up and out and lengthens just slightly the distance from my nose to chin. It is, in my opinion , better than cosmetic surgery and helps retain my beautiful smile.

I have a long and grateful history with Dr. Anderkvist and can recommend him without hesitation or qualification.


Charles Kessler

I met Dr Anderkvist a few years ago when my teeth were a mess. I needed multiple implants (9 upper and 1 lower) and met him for a consultation. My experiences with him were amazing. He recommended an oral surgeon to do the implants and when they had healed he completely rebuilt my upper mouth with crowns. It was a long process and over the next 10 months I came to know Tomas both personally and professionally. As a technician his work is excellent and as a person, he is warm, concerned and lovely to be around. The results of his work was that I have a full mouth of teeth, perfectly aligned and have not had any issues with them for the past 5 years. I am proud to say that he is my dentist.


Lee Vikre, VP Tremendous People

Dear Dr. Anderkvist.
Recently I received a compliment from a friend; you have such beautiful teeth! and because she is a good friend and felt she could be inquisitive, she added, are they veneers? I was happy to let her know that no, they aren't veneers, but two new crowns along with the Sapphire whitening procedure you did for me. I shared your contact information with her, so you'll probably be getting a call.

My experience with you motivated me to let you know how very happy I am to have you as my dentist. Since you have been working with my daughter Ali over the past few years, and more recently with me, I have been so impressed with both the amazing results Ali and I have received, as well as the exceptional experience you create for your patients.

Neither Ali nor I were easy cases. Both of us required delicate and difficult cosmetic restorations, and both of us had very high expectations, which you exceeded. You worked with Ali's tight time frame before her wedding, and accommodated the fact that I had to travel from Phoenix for appointments.

You and your entire team were friendly, warm, welcoming, and made us feel like we were your only patients. Now Ali is even more beautiful, and as a public speaker, I can be proud of my smile.

We're both very appreciative of you and your team. I will highly recommend you to all of my friends and family, and invite you to share this letter and my email address with anyone who would like to know more about you from a patient's perspective.

In appreciation, and with warm regards,


M.L.

I can't tell you how much I appreciate your excellent dentistry.I think you rally saved me from being really ill.


T.L.

Please accept this basket as a small token of my deep appreciation for the help you gave me in one of the most terrible moments of my life.You gave me the hope and courage I needed at that moment.

I can't thank you enough for your kind and gracious ways you have cared for us.You and your wonderful staff have always been there when we needed you.

S.B.

I want to thank you for making my appointment painless both during and after. With my sensitive jaw I feared a problem but everything turned out just fine.


S.M.

J.G.

E.Z.

To heal some of that wound and I am deeply grateful to you and your wonderful staff.


Doretha

My Mom's first visit to Dr. Anderkvist Westwood Dental Smiles Office was very warm. My Mom was very comfortable with the Dentist and his Dental Assistants. I was surprised when she let them take x-rays. The x-rays showed that my mother needed an extensive amount of dental work done. Mother had to have Oral Surgery, which meant she had to be put asleep, and this was the scariest part.

Then I met with Dr. Anderkvist and Dr. Tabachnik who would be doing the Oral Surgery. They explain the procedure, which made me fill comfortable. Dr. Chang was the Anesthesiology; she called me to discuss the procedure, and assured me that she would take care of my Mother. She had to be put asleep twice and she's 87 years old.

My Mom's Primary Doctor sent test results in order for the Dental work to be done. This was something my Mom always wanted to do, but she always put everyone else first.

Daisy is the Office Manager, she's the best she help me understand the financial part. Daisy and Keisha the Receptionist were comforting while Mom was in surgery; they are very professional and sweet. Thank God for Dr. Anderkvist and his wonderful Dental Staff.

After Mother's Oral Surgery, her quality of life has improved greatly. I ask Mom how do you like you new teeth she replied. These are my teeth and they feel wonderful. I can eat without being in pain. I'm Happy.
Thanks again Dr. Anderkvist!
