Meeting his patients demands in the fast pace of LA life is a tall order, but Dr. Latner has proven himself more than worthy of that challenge. Our Los Angeles cosmetic dentistry practice has flexible hours, a complete range of dental services in one location, and the experience and skills to make your dream smile a reality. Committed to gentle, personalized care, Dr. Latner and our team listen to your needs and fulfill them using the highest-quality materials and a modern approach. You'll feel completely taken care of at our Los Angeles, CA office.
Experience You Can Trust
Why are we so confident that one visit will make you a loyal patient? Many reasons. Dr. Latner's trustworthy manner, and ability to explain treatment options simply and in terms patients appreciate. His straightforward advice culled from a long history as a leader in the cosmetic and general dentistry field is another merit. Dr. Latner loves showing patients what cosmetic dentistry can do for them, giving them previews of the smile they can achieve with treatments like porcelain veneers, dental implants, Invisalign clear braces, and more.
Care for Your Whole Family
Besides offering care that meets the general, cosmetic, and restorative care of adults, Dr. Latner can also address the needs of children through pediatric dentistry. Providing a space where adults and their children can have back-to-back appointments is one way we’re helping our LA patients take care of their important needs in a way that works with their schedule. What’s more, when children are taught to make brushing and flossing a habit early on, it can lead to a lifetime of diligent care at home and, subsequently, good health.
Straighter Teeth in Six Months
Our team at Westside Dental Associates knows how important it is to have a confident smile. That’s why we offer the Six Month Smiles braces system. Instead of using aligners or traditional brackets and wires, Six Month Smiles uses clear brackets and tooth-colored wires to move teeth over a period of half a year. As a fast, easy, and discreet option, Six Month Smiles also provides conservative, predictable results. If you wish you had a straighter smile but don’t want to commit to traditional braces, let Dr. Latner and his LA dental team talk to you about the difference that Six Month Smiles can make in your life.
Personalized Care for Los Angeles and Beyond
Regardless of whether we’re delivering care to a child or an adult, our goal is always the same—to provide personalized care. We’re all susceptible to common conditions, like gum disease and tooth decay, but no one has exactly the same needs. With personalized care from Dr. Latner and our caring team at Westside Dental Associates, we can help you and your family build and preserve a healthy, beautiful smiles.

A straight, beautiful smile can help you enjoy better oral health and self-confidence. Not everyone’s smile is naturally straight, though. For patients who need a little extra help overcoming an underbite, overbite, crossbite, or crowded or gapped teeth, Dr. Latner of Westside Dental Associates offers two great options for cosmetic braces: Six Month Smiles and Invisalign.

Preventive care is the cornerstone of dentistry, and few tools today are as helpful with preventive care as a tool called DIAGNOdent. Dr. Latner uses DIAGNOdent every day during regular checkups to look for cavities that are just beginning to form. Every time it comes across one, it lets us know by making a sound. If we find anything, we can start working on a treatment plan immediately, because our goal is to conserve as much of your natural smile as possible.
To preserve smiles we use tooth-colored fillings, which are more supportive of your smile’s natural structure than metal fillings. They also blend in with teeth to provide discreet results. All of which means you can smile with greater confidence as you continue enjoying your natural smile throughout life.

On February 14, couples across the country celebrated another Valentine’s Day. Given how important the heart is to that day—or at least cartoonish version of one—we decided to use our first post of the month to talk about the connection between heart health and oral health.
You might be surprised to hear that your smile and your heart are connected, but recent data indicates that they are. How exactly? That’s not entirely clear, but it seems to involve gum disease, a very common oral health problem.
Gum disease is caused by the accumulation of bacteria and plaque around the gum line. If left untreated, pockets can form between your teeth and your gums, giving bacteria and plaqu
