“Dr B and his staff are the best! They have rebuilt my mouth and it is the cleanest/strongest it has ever been! Been with him for 7+ years and have referred numerous patients. Lizette is also the best! I have a horrible fear of dentists and they put me at ease each and every time. Someone mentioned waiting? I have NEVER waited even 10 minutes to be seen. I call BS on that review. Trust me, go to him!
I’m one of those types that’s terrified by dentists. Had an exceptionally horrific run-in with Navy dentistry (two impacted wisdom teeth cracked into pieces and cut out of my skull by a Reservist lieutenant late for a golf game… the novocaine kicked in about 5 minutes after he was done), which made it, shall we say, emotionally challenging to get myself into a dentist chair for the next decade or so.
My wife found Dr B through one of her actor friends, and was highly recommended as a dentist specializing in sedation dentistry. After a gentle prod or two, I made an appointment.
In one visit, I went from someone who’d rather attend an Amway convention while suffering from explosive diarrhea than sit in a dentist’s chair to actually *trusting* this guy. Dr Bjornbak is friendly, funny, genuine, proactive, caring, and spot-on professional. He was very clear on the specifics of my treatment plan, made sure I understood everything, and ensured that my procedure was pain-free. The sedation dentistry aspect of his practice is honestly a lifesaver for people like me.
I’ve had two ‘major’ visits to Dr B to get my mouth back in healthy shape, and after each visit, he would call that evening to check in and see how I was feeling.
His front office staff are superb, his assistants are top-notch, and his latest dental hygienist does a fantastic job. His office, just off the 101 in Sherman Oaks, is easily accessible.
I’ve recommended him to several employees and co-workers, and they’ve all reported similar experiences.
Bottom line – if you’re terrified of going to the dentist – this is the one you want to see.”

Hooray for Dr. Bjornbak! I have had terrible dentist experiences for the past 6 years and had developed a morbid fear of all dentists. Every one of my fillings had to be drilled out and replaced 2-3 times, crowns re-done: you name it, all in the name of bad dentists! Not to mention never being numbed enough and no dentist ever believing me.
Dr. Bjornbak fixed two of my cavities with the sedation method which is wonderful! He even tested my teeth for sensitivity to air and cold water before numbing me just to get an idea of how sensitive I was. I can’t recommend him more for people who are scared of dentists. He and his staff are really wonderful and I now trust him so much I think I’ll be able to go back next time without having to be sedated.
He even called to check up on me the night after my surgery!
A little update: I had to have a tooth pulled and subsequently, had an implant and crown put in place. I was scared, to say the least, about the entire process but it was so easy! I’m a giant baby- such a giant baby that if I hear the drill, I break into cold sweats and scare everyone in the room with my nervousness. Dr. Bjornbak is so accommodating that he adjusted the crown outside of my mouth so I wouldn’t have to come close to the drill. I can honestly say, there is nothing scary about having dental work done at Sherman Oaks Dental. It’s almost a walk in the park.
I used to be morbidly afraid of dentists but during the past year, I’ve learned not to go to each appointment with a sense of doom and dread. The staff is great with answering questions, working around my schedule and I have never waited more than 2 minutes in the waiting room either. This guy will be my dentist for life!
