At The Palisades Dentists,

Our mission is to change the way you feel about going to the dentist.

 We Value…

Relationships of trust, support, and confidence with one another and our patients. We believe in providing exceptional care, and an entire patient experience. We value minimally invasive, evidence-based, holistic care– meaning, oral health is a part of overall health.

We Promise…

To use methods and technology to offer the finest in general, cosmetic, and specialty dental healthcare in Pacific Palisades.

Our modernized office provides cutting edge technology, and treatment rooms are designed for your privacy and relaxation.  Our rooms feature first-class leather treatment chairs for your comfort and streaming entertainment.   Digital x-rays, 3-D imaging, digital scanning, as well as laser technology are also used to provide a comfortable experience at the highest standard of care.

We Feel…

Honored to do what we do.  We feel that it’s a privilege to serve.  We take pride in what we do, and we love being able to help patients achieve healthier, more beautiful, functional smiles and healthier, more beautiful, functional lives.

"I can't praise Pali Dentists enough. The care is incredible -- both doctors have years of experience and their personalities are delightful. Who ever knew the dentist could be such a pleasant experience?!"
