Our mission is to change the way you feel about going to the dentist.  We believe in providing exceptional care, and an entire patient experience.

We strive to carry this out by building lasting relationships of trust, support, and confidence with one another and our patients.  We use methods and technology to offer the finest in general, cosmetic, and specialty dental healthcare in Pacific Palisades.

Our modernized office provides state-of-the-art technology, and the treatment rooms are designed for your privacy, relaxation, and enjoyment.  Our rooms feature first-class leather treatment chairs for your comfort, streaming entertainment (Netflix, Hulu, Pandora, etc.), Bose noise cancelling headphones and “The Wand”, a painless, computer-assisted anesthesia delivery system.   Digital x-rays, 3-D imaging, digital scanning, as well as laser technology are used to provide a comfortable experience at the highest standard of care.

"If loving my dentist's practice is wrong, I don't want to be right. Not only do they offer the latest procedures using sophisticated technology, they bring to bear kindness and ethical conduct."
