DR. DEAN L. CARLSTON

YOUR DENTIST IN WEST LOS ANGELES, CA

As a child, I was very fearful of dentists! The procedures I experienced were painful. Today, I seem to attract patients who are also fearful of dentistry. Maybe that’s because my first priority is to render treatment as gently and pain-free as possible. Dental treatments don’t have to be fearful or painful 😊. I offer a full range of dental services and will take the time to design individualized treatment plans and ensure that your care will help you achieve your smile goals. Call today to schedule your consultation!
