Honest and gret dentist. I wish I still lived in LA. Only dentist that I feel comfortable with!

From Our Website

For most people, achieving a healthy, beautiful smile is the reason for receiving orthodontic care. If you're self-conscious about your smile, correcting your concerns with orthodontics will greatly improve the way you look and feel. When your treatment is complete, you will have the smile you've always dreamed of and the confidence to show it off! We know how to make you feel comfortable and confident throughout your entire orthodontic experience. Our practice is dedicated to making sure that you receive the quality care and attention you deserve.

We value you as our patient and appreciate your commitment to continued oral health. We understand the importance of providing you with online convenience for managing your patient information, which is why we are excited to partner with Sesame Communications in our effort to stay connected. Using our convenient online services is easy. You simply log in to your account through our website, where you can access all of your patient information, online 24-7, in a safe, secure environment that exceeds HIPAA requirements.

We get asked, why can't my dentist do my orthodontic treatment? Your dentist could "do" orthodontics, just like your family physician could "do" surgery. However; everyone would probably agree that as much as you like your family physician, you'd prefer to have a surgeon perform surgery. Orthodontists spend an additional 3 years in residency, specializing in correcting the position of the jaws and teeth. They also don't perform other dental procedures besides orthodontics. Your dentist is wonderful at filling cavities, whitening teeth, doing crowns and all the other things that make a good dentist.

We recognize that all of our patients are unique and deserve to receive orthodontic care that reflects their individual needs. Our experienced and talented team is committed to working with you and your family to create a comfortable, stress-free, and rewarding orthodontic experience every time you visit our practice. We are pleased to welcome you and your family, and we look forward to working with you.

Invisalign clear aligners are a series of invisible, removable and comfortable trays that straighten your teeth. Gone are the days where we need to clean around brackets and wires. With Invisalign clear aligners brushing and flossing are normal, there are no food restrictions and no emergency visits for broken brackets or poking wires. The aligners are comfortable and have no metal to cause mouth abrasions during treatment. Dr. Gimlen can treat almost any case with Invisalign aligners, making orthodontic treatment in our office easier than ever.

True orthodontic emergencies are rare, but when they occur we are available to you. As a general rule, you should call our office when you experience severe pain or have a painful appliance problem you can't take care of yourself. We'll be able to schedule an appointment to resolve the problem. You might be surprised to learn that you may be able to solve many problems yourself temporarily until you can get to our office. If there is a loose piece that you can remove, put it in a plastic bag or envelope and bring it with you to your next appointment.

We understand your need to receive treatment in a practice that makes you feel comfortable, safe, and welcome. Please feel free to schedule an appointment or stop by for a complete tour of our practice. You will get to meet our team, walk through our office and treatment areas, and learn more about the treatments we provide.
