Dr Alex is amazing. He did two of my dental implants recently (to fill in spaces) & also some cosmetic surgery where he shaved off my gums to created an arch to make my smile appear bigger! Pretty genius. There's a gal there named Thanh & she's very thorough & gentle. I drive an hour to go see them because their work is awesome. My husband is a fan too. I highly recommend Dr. Alex for your family.

Dr. Alex is such a great and honest dentist! He will give you the most reasonable price. He was not like any other dentist I've been too. He spent time with me explaining the procedures and what is the best option for my student budget. I recommended my entire family and friends to go to him! His cleaning special is so cheap that I come in for a cleaning at least 3 times a year.

Dr. Alex is very friendly and top-notch. Aside from running his own practice he teaches a graduated course at UCLA, hence the office being closed on Tuesdays. His exam was thorough and informative. He also did not try to suggest any procedures that were unnecessary just to have me spend more money. The office is nice, clean and the staff was friendly.

I had a bone graft and implant, the procedure was quick and painless and after two days still haven't needed to take anything for pain. Relieved and happy with the experience. Thanks to Smiles By Alex. Looking forward to next apointment in 2 weeks. Two of my friends will be making appointments in the future.

His prices are very fair but most of all the technique and his patient consideration was just superb. Highly Recommended to anyone that needs dental service or just a simple check up.

Tips & Advices
  • Pick Your Plan: Most people purchase three main varieties, usually through their employers.
    • An indemnity or fee-for-service plan means you'll have to pay for annual deductibles and co-insurance payments out of pocket.
    • A preferred provider organization is less costly, and you choose from a network of dentists. However, PPOs have some limitations and accompanying deductibles.
    • A dental health maintenance organization plan limits you to just a few choices of dentists, and one doctor handles all of your oral care needs. However, these HMO are usually much less costly.
  • PPO plans and dental HMOs work with only a select number of doctors. While that usually means fewer costs, it also means you have less choice in the dentist who can treat you Before purchasing the plan, you'll receive a list of dentists in each network. From there, you can then pick a plan with doctors who meet your standards and requirements.
  • When picking a plan, you need to look at just how much you'll pay for each and every service. For instance, some plans won't cover your fillings or X-rays, while others may charge more or less for a crown or tooth extraction. You don't want to be caught off-guard by unforeseen charges.
  • If you're truly comfortable with a dentist and you feel he or she can be an ally in your ongoing oral care regimen, then consider signing a plan to just keep that dentist available. That means potentially deal with costs and other insurance-related factors that you might have wanted to. If need be, you might be able to work with the dentist's office to address some of the plan-specific concerns.
  • Ask family, friends or colleagues for recommendations. They will be able to provide details about a dentist's demeanor, operating style and approach to patient care
  • Meet with any prospective dentists to ask about what treatments they perform most often, procedures they're not as familiar with, what accreditation they have or any organizations they belong to and how their offices handles insurance and payments.
  • Consider driving distance, location and office hours.
  • Check With Your State Board: The state board can outline what requirements your dentist must meet and offer information about any discrepancies in the their background and if he or she has faced any disciplinary actions.
  • Remember Your Angles - When brushing your teeth, always place the brush at a 45-degree angle..
  • Don't Forget the Tongue – Your tongue is the largest source of bacteria. Brush it front to back and don't forget the sides.
  • Floss Everyday - Each time you floss, have at least 18 inches of floss available. For optimal control, hold the floss between your thumbs and forefingers.
  • Watch What You Eat - Sugar, alcohol and coffee contain phosphorus. While some can prove beneficial, too much of this chemical can eat away at your teeth and gums.
  • Keep in Mind the Mouthwash - Mouthwash can be helpful if used to supplement proper brushing and flossing. Most mouthwash brands contain chlorine dioxide, a chemical that targets the majority of oral bacterial strains.
Yellow teeth are the result of a number of bad habits, mainly smoking, drinking too much coffee and improper nutrition. Many dentists will treat with a whitening procedure.
These painful bumps are the result of irritation to the soft tissue of your mouth. These sores can make brushing almost impossible. There are a number of different causes for sores, including anemia or a vitamin B-12 deficiency. Your doctor will have to examine the bump, find its cause and then develop a specific treatment plan, including the use of corticosteroids to reduce inflammation or antimicrobial mouthwash.
