My husband and I both had a wonderful experience! Nice and clean office, staff is very friendly and easy to talk too. We had a cleaning like we haven’t had at any other dentist, would definitely recommend!

I recently switched dental offices, after being referred by a friend and hearing good things about Three Sixty Dentistry from a few people. I decided to give it a try and was thoroughly impressed. Dr. Edward’s made me feel extremely comfortable and was thorough at explaining his treatment each step of the way. I am not particularly a fan of going to the dentist. However, after what I felt was a 5 star treatment and pain free, I cannot imagine going any place else. Also, his front office staff are amazing and very accommodating!

I have been going to Three Sixty Dentistry for the past several years and they never fail to make me feel welcomed and comfortable. They communicate everything very clearly and I appreciate that they make sure that I’m reminded of when my appointments are. I get so comfortable that I actually have fallen asleep most of the times I go, even despite the drilling and other procedures that are usually stressful to most people. I would highly recommend Dr. Edwards and his incredible staff for your dental needs.

When you walk into the door, you are instantly relaxed by the atmosphere! Dr. Edwards has a highly trained professional staff who certainly make you comfortable in every way! We moved from Santa Clarita to Ventura, and I still drive back out to 360 Dentistry because I trust the team, and feel calm while in their confident hands. They also have a great dental plan for those without an insurance provider. I highly recommend 360 Dentistry for every aspect of oral care.

I was with the same Dentist for over thirty years, he lived in our community and we ran into him and his family so much we became friends, but when he retired and faced with the Dentist he sold too it wasn’t the same. So I followed my Hygienist to Dr Edwards office. He is everything your looking for in a Dentist that cares about the person in the chair not just an anonymous open mouth that sends him a check. Dr Edwards takes time with you, his office is friendly and they know YOU not your file right from the first visit. I have found a new home!

Three Sixty dental is a real jewel for the Santa Clarita Valley, located in Newhall. I went there on 8-20-18 and I was charmed by the friendly staff and such a beautiful office, adorned with waterfalls and forest motif. No kidding! Dr. Brian Edwards gave an examination that surpassed all of my prior dental exams, both in thoroughness and professionalism. I also had a wonderful hygienist where the teeth cleaning experience was painless. The receptionist was wonderful also and made me feel welcomed and valuable. I couldn’t ask for a better Dentist. I highly recommend this place for all your dental needs.
