They make a big deal about everything. They say it will take 2 hours!!! It doesn’t take 2 hours for people!! They also will send you at least 4 texts every day for 3 days before appt. & 3-4 emails a day for 4-6 before your dog’s appointment. Again OVER KILL! Then when you get there & take you into the initial “consulting” room, they ask you a few questions & they don’t even have your correct phone number! And I’m not talking 1number off. It’s the entire wrong number, including prefix! For all their fancy protocol, this place is all fluff with the administration personnel not knowing how to do the basics! There must be at least 10 people at front desk & behind the “closed doors”, doing nothing medical!

Took my dog in for a routine teeth cleaning which somehow lasted 4 hours long making me miss multiple appointments throughout the day. Afterwards without being disclosed to me I find to my surprise that they’ve shaved my dogs leg for a catheter insertion and his back paw for a monitor. I ask to speak with someone regarding the issue and the manager’s response is sorry about that, however we can give you a 10% discount on your next teeth cleaning. As if I would go back under any circumstance. Would not recommend.

The service is wonderful and I adore the vets here, however I'm disappointed that for a clinic that focuses on dental work (which is often very expensive), their only CareCredit promotional financing option is the 6 months. It makes very little sense to me that they would not have the 12-month option for such expensive procedures. To make matters worse, I was not warned that their only financing option is the 6-months when I initially took my dog here. I had made my purchase with CareCredit's financing information in mind and was later blindsided. Be warned that if you choose to go here and use financing plans like CareCredit, you will only have the 6-month financing regardless of how much you spend here. It makes an otherwise great clinic pretty disappointing and financially inaccessible.

I would give 6 STARS for Green Dog if I could. Great place, outstanding staff and zen environment. My boy got the best dental cleaning in years. NO stress, no anesthesia, the brown tartar on his back teeth is now gone and his teeth look shiny white, reminds me of the orbit gum commercial. He is currently in remission from Hemangiosarcoma and the vet was knowledgeable and chose options in the best interest for my dog's well being.

Just terrific. Even just picking up a prescription they were quick, didn't make me move the scared dog on my lap and took care of everything. Parking can be tricky, but bonus for dog owners is the dog park is right next door.

Loved this experience! It’s super clean, friendly and professional. You have your own waiting room, they don’t rush intake and make sure your pup is comfortable. I really appreciated the service here and anyone in Santa Monica, I highly recommend!

Great people very caring, always reminding me when Charlie needs his vaccinations, only problem is they don't work well as a normal vet. Nearest appointments are several weeks out

Need Dog Dental? I highly recommend Green Dog Dental. I've now taken both of my 12 y o. Chihuahuas there on Main St. SM. They are very kind, informative, efficient, and communication is outstanding. The prices are reasonable. They also provide other services you can talk to the Vet about that day. They prefer awake cleaning if your dog is a candidate. They can switch to sedation (twilight) or complete general as need arises. But in those case food must be held for 4 hours. My first dog Shiva was awake cooperative and all went great. Today Bodhi my more sensitive pup was prepared for anything. Great news. He was a good candidate and was done awake. No extractions. They go over all pricing and don't do anything without your permission to proceed. For example: labwork, x-rays, meds etc. The staff and flow of the business is wonderful. I felt my dog and I were well cared for. Extremely happy. Please Google business for prices. Talk to Green Dog for info instead of asking me. I give it 2 thumbs up and my referral. And I am a Surgery R.N. Very please and also cute space.????????????

Green Dog Dental is the best - wonderful staff, great price, and amazing service! I highly recommend them to anyone who needs their dog to get a dental cleaning done. They were so careful and caring with my dog who showed signs of aggression to them previously. I was relieved at how understanding they were to. With their guidance, I gave him trazodone, brought him in with a muzzle, and had him sedated for the dental procedure. Everything turned out amazing and I can tell they truly care about the animals they treat. The results are stunning! -- Oct 15, 2020 Update: I stand by everything I said above! They've also now helped my 10 year old cat recover from her recurring ear infections. During my first appointment for my cat with Green Dog Dental (as a second opinion), Dr. Shin mentioned it could be allergies and suggested changing my cat's diet. She also provided me several other options to choose from, including ear medication, allergy tests, and anti-allergy medication. She was very up-front about the costs and which options would make the most sense to try first. I appreciate her honesty and transparency, it truly feels like she wants to help the animals that come to her clinic. I went for every option that Dr. Shin mentioned to be cautious and I'm so glad that I did. The lab results came back so quickly and detected that my cat has an allergy to a few ingredients in her food. We switched her diet while continuing the ear medications to fully resolve the infection. We decided to book several appointments with Dr. Shin over the course of the past two months to help monitor my cat's progress. Now she's doing fantastic and no sign of the infection coming back!! It's safe to say that Green Dog Dental is now my cat's official vet too! Side note - during all of the appointments for my cat, the amazing staff encouraged me to bring my dog as well to help desensitize him to the clinic. The staff gave him treats and brought him around to give him extra attention, which made him feel more comfortable. It's obvious that the staff here are amazing! Shout out to Dr. Shin, Mara, Taylor, Raveena, Kim, Rose, and everyone else that has helped my cat and dog. We are always so grateful to you!

A friend recommended this place for a wellness exam for my 7 year old french bulldog. I was able to make an appointment for that same week with Dr. Shin and I couldn't be happier with my experience. I've been there twice now, once for a wellness exam and once for an injury to my dog's paw. The clinic itself is very clean and modern and the front desk manager is very friendly. Dr. Shin is professional, has a calming presence and goes above and beyond, spending the extra time to explain everything. She was very thorough at the wellness exam and even more so after my dog's injury. She carefully explained all options for treatment and suggested going with the least invasive route as our first option. If you are worried about paying "Santa Monica prices", you will be pleasantly surprised at just how affordable this place is too. I've been to 3 different vet clinics over the last 5 years in LA and this is the only place I haven't had to wait forever to get an appointment or be seen at my appointment time, and it is by far the most affordable of the three places. I just wish I had found Dr. Shin sooner!

My cat is 17 years old. She always leaves GDD happy, and calm. Yesterday, I had her annual exam, blood and claw clipping done. That same evening, my cat jumped up on the sofa and snuggled me! Not her normal style. She needed the clipping and brushing, and was thanking me! Lovely staff and great service. Thank you! Laura

My dog is 14 years old and he is my everything. That said, I only trust Green Dog with my baby’s life. I’ve been bringing him to see Dr. Shin and she is just wonderful! Highly recommend!
