I recently came across this beautiful piece of art A PRAYER FOR THE DOCTOR, and I had to share it with everyone:
This piece was a custom creation by the artist, Shabsai Uvsitzky (shabsaisart.com), for another customer, and I fell in love with it. Besides, I can always use a good prayer every now and again.
His website has more information and a gallery filled with works that include portraits, sculptures, embroidery, leather crafts, and even art made out of real gold. It is all customizable, Read more [...]
Sensitive teeth can bring someone to tears (see above). Some people have sensitivity to cold, candy, or just breathing in. Your dentist (hopefully me) should know about any sensitivity you may be experiencing at your next check-up. We have several ways to treat sensitivity, and sometimes the sensitivity is a warning sign to other major dental issues. Here are 5 common causes of sensitive teeth. Enjoy!
1. CLENCHING and GRINDING
The vast majority of my patients who Read more [...]
There is no question about it, your entire body is connected. Just like the song says: Your head bone's connected to your neck bone.. or something like that. This is the exact reason why someone who had a major hip surgery or heart valve replacement needs to be pre-medicated (as a precaution) before any dental work. We don't want bacteria, decay, or disease from your mouth to go into your blood stream and accumulate or damage other parts of your body. Numerous studies show (for more info email: Read more [...]
Our Encino office has proudly been providing high quality dentistry to Emek Hebrew Academy since 1975! Many patients who came in as kids have started bringing their own kids to our office. We have been so fortunate to work with Emek: at health fairs, carnivals, and other community events. We are proud to offer our PRE-Pesach Special, which is the lowest prices we have EVER offered, and there will likely never be a better deal. As always, there are no hidden fees, no strings attached!

You keep hearing or reading about me discussing the benefits of a Same Day Crowns. I just wanted to show you a before and after of a recent case.
The patient had an old silver filling, which broke out (luckily, it didn't do more damage) and had a lot of decay under the filling. Before Same Day Crown technology, this was an obvious crown case for a dentist. Old fashioned crowns involve drilling the tooth down in all directions. Unfortunately, there is not much tooth structure left if a Read more [...]
This morning I had the honor of speaking in front of almost 400 boys and girls at Emek Hebrew Academy in Sherman Oaks. The children were in Pre-First all the way to Fifth grade. This week was for their annual ''Health Week'' where the kids had games, activities, and other events where they learned about health, nutrition, exercise and other things that are good for their bodies.
Rabbi Solomon (principal of Emek) and our dental assistant Stephanie

We received a beautiful testimonial/email from Joe T. I really feel like his experience gives a nice survey of a few of the key procedures we perform at our offices. It also shows how our procedures, equipment, and technology really can make a huge difference. Joe was kind enough to allow us to share his X Rays and images.
Here it is:
'' At 10pm on a Saturday night my tooth started aching. It was hypersensitive to anything cold that i put in my mouth. I texted Dr. Gabe and asked Read more [...]
This Sunday is Super Bowl Sunday (and we are OPEN if you need us). So in honor of the big day, we will talk about the legend of Doug Williams, the 1988 Super Bowl, and root canals.
In 1988, Doug Williams went from a back-up quarterback on a bad team to the starting quarterback for a team (the Washington Redskins) in the Super Bowl. Everything was going great, but Doug wasn't feeling great. After a weeklong media frenzy, Doug experienced severe pain on a tooth connected to a dental Read more [...]
Award-winning, mega pop star Ke$ha is currently recovering in rehab. Even before rehab, Ke$ha had a very interesting passion: collecting teeth and making art out of them. Thus far, Ke$ha has made a tiara (pictured below), bracelets, rings, and even a bra!
Ke$ha always seems to need more teeth for another art project, which has prompted many fans to send their teeth to her for her creations. Her rehab facility, as reported by TMZ.com, has issued a TOOTH BLOCK. Fans are no longer allowed Read more [...]
I am a dentist who proudly serves an amazing community. I have a connection to many of my patients that is more than just a dentist to patient relationship. We are one big family. I have seen way too much bad dentistry in the Los Angeles area. It seems like every bargain that looks ''too good to be true'' is, in fact, too good to be true. We have promotions, contests, and giveaways, but it is near impossible for us to have the lowest prices without sacrificing quality. We keep our prices competitive, Read more [...]
