“We feel like you are all part of our family! I hope we can remain with you for a very long time. Thanks for helping our children understand about their dental health”

“Have you heard of the movie, “Encino Man?” Well, Dr. Marilyn Calvo is the “Encino Woman!” I have been going to Dr. Calvo for four years now, and I wouldn’t consider going anywhere else. Her whole office radiates such professionalism, warmth, and friendliness. She is so very thorough that even the tiniest cavity can’t get past her. She is truly and artist. So, if you are wise, head out west on Ventura Blvd. to Dr. Marilyn Calvo, the very BEST!”

“Dr. Calvo is not just the most amazing dentist I have ever known, but she is the most amazing down to earth person. I was lucky to discover Dr. Calvo through a friend who highly recommended her. I got veneers done with her and they look AMAZING!! Everyone is jealous of how great my smile is. When I first went in to see her I was blown away with how much attention she paid to me. She always makes sure to spend time with her patients’ one on one and explain exactly what is going on to make sure you are aware.”


“In my past, I went to dentists who never explained anything and just did the routine cleaning without emotion and passion. Dr. Calvo has so much passion and knowledge for the services she provides. She is definitely a dentist who genuinely cares and improves the lives of people around her. I am so grateful to have her. The staff that works with Dr. Calvo are the nicest people I have ever known. I look forward to going to the dentist for the first time in my life.”

“Thank you Dr. Calvo for giving me the smile I have always dreamed of. I’ve had my veneers for nearly three years now and the compliments I have received have been overwhelming. I now feel like I have the confidence to show my teeth all the time (I find myself smiling so much my cheek bones get sore!). If anyone is considering getting veneers they should look no further than Dr. Calvo. She made sure that I was 100% satisfied with how I wanted my smile to look. Thanks Doc!”

“Perhaps it was the episode of “Leave it to Beaver” where Wally told the Beave that dentists drill holes in your teeth just so they can make money on fillings, but regardless: I am very skeptical of dentists. A close friend strongly recommended Dr. Calvo and I’m glad I listened. Marilyn and her staff (Jennifer and Lupe) are extremely nice but more importantly; I feel like I can trust them. My search for a dentist is over. Now if I can only stop believing everything I hear on TV…” —

“Been with Dr. Calvo since 1982…I was born in ’78. She is THE best. She is like part of the family at this point. I cannot count the times I have been complimented on my smile – Dr. Calvo’s great work – and I must say it’s a great feeling. She takes her work very seriously, but does not lose the friendly touch. Every single patient is important to her and she provides the same 5-star treatment to all. The entire staff is amazing! Every single one of them makes you feel at home. The best place to get your smile taken care of. Keep up the great work!”

Eddie T.

“Dr. Calvo is amazing. Whether you need cosmetic dentistry or just regular dental work, you will find her to be a caring and talented professional. She clearly and concisely explains the treatment choices and the pros/cons of each. Her office staff are friendly and cheerful. It is such a pleasant place, you’d hardly believe you were at the dentist! I also love that she is a perfectionist and more than willing to go the extra mile for a patient.”

“Dr. Calvo and her staff are all amazing! I went in for a “redo” of my two front teeth (crowns that didn’t look good at all) for my upcoming wedding. I was very nervous from my previous bad experience (and a lot of $$ later). I didn’t give her much time before the wedding. She was very thorough and also explained things well. I’m… probably not a dentist’s favorite patient; they scare me. Dr. Calvo made me very comfortable. Most importantly, the end result was excellent. Not only did she give me two new beautiful front teeth but she also did some bonding and made my entire smile look symmetrical. Several people commented at my wedding about how great my teeth looked – including people who had no idea I had any work done. I can’t wait to see my wedding pictures now! Thank you Dr. Calvo I came to you very self-conscious about my smile and it is so nice to feel comfortable smiling now.”

Jamie S.

“Dr. Calvo has done my cleanings, inlays, restorations and veneers over the past 14 years and if I could find anyone better I would be surprised. Her staff is incredibly friendly, courteous and professional, and her practice is run the way I would want to run my business. I cannot give a higher recommendation.”
