We were new to Torrance, VERY new, like we moved in 3 days before, when sure enough I broke a tooth on a piece of popcorn at the movies. We came from up north and I didn't know any dentists in the area. Fortunately, we remembered seeing the Ocean West sign and they took me in without even an appointment. The receptionist, hygienists and dentists were all as nice as could be, welcoming us to town. Even though they decided to pull the tooth, I was in and out in about an hour. I barely felt a thing and they took my insurance too!
