At Model Smiles Dentistry, we know that dental care should not be approached with a one-size-fits-all attitude. No two patients are the same, and everyone walks into the dentist’s office with their own unique set of concerns and needs. Dr. Albert Chow has a reputation for excellence in both skill and bedside manner, and has had the honor of being chosen for multiple years by Los Angeles Magazine as the dentist to whom other Southern California dental professionals are most likely to entrust their own care.
Many Westlake Village residents rely on us to provide not only routine cleanings, but also a wide array of cosmetic procedures to keep their smiles shining. We offer veneers and whitening treatments for yellowing and decaying teeth, as well as near-invisible braces alternatives to straighten crooked smiles. In severe cases, full mouth reconstruction is also a possibility. For receding gum lines that are unsightly and also increase the risk of gum disease and infection, we offer pinhole gum rejuvenation, a much less invasive and painful alternative to a tissue graft from the roof of the mouth.
Taking Care of the Whole Patient
We know that many people experience a certain amount of anxiety around visiting the dentist, ranging from slight uneasiness to a level of panic that can even prevent some patients from seeking the care they need. We are committed both to creating a warm office environment and to offering various levels and methods of sedation to keep even the most anxious patients at ease. To this end, we also believe firmly in keeping the patient well-informed every step of the way, from underlying causes of dental issues to possible treatments and aftercare.
Our holistic approach to dental care takes into account the wellbeing of the entire patient and guides treatment decisions based on the impact on the entire body, not just the mouth and teeth. This is, for example, why we prefer the use of digital x-rays, which emit less radiation, and why we only use mercury-free fillings when treating cavities.
Our Office Serving Westlake Village
Westlake Village is a unique community spanning between Los Angeles and Ventura counties – while the name “Westlake Village” is the name of an incorporated city on the western edge of Los Angeles County, it can also refer to an area in Ventura County that is technically within the city limits of Thousand Oaks. This is because the Westlake Village community is recognized as encompassing the area immediately around Westlake Lake, a manmade lake at the center of the community. Around 9 miles inland from the Pacific Ocean and located in the northwestern area of the Santa Monica Mountains, much of the community is surrounded by open space, with numerous recreation areas, hiking opportunities, and horse trails.
At Model Smiles Dentistry, we love both the community and the scenery of Westlake Village, and we are proud to offer its residents the best in dental care. For care you can count on from a team you’ll love, call us today to set up an appointment.
