Our Office

Our boutique Studio City office was personally designed by Dr. Sands and brought to life by award-winning architect John Reed. The facility features high-tech treatment rooms, dedicated in-house sterilization stations, flat screen TVs, music, and headphones to help patients relax, and fresh pillows and blankets for patient comfort during longer treatment sessions.

All On 4

Dr. Sands improved this patient’s smile aesthetically but also the overall health and function. Dr. Sand’s uses advanced techniques for her patients that address both structural and cosmetic issues.
 
This patient had no back teeth for decades and struggled to eat and smile. With 4 dental implants on the top and bottom, Dr. Sands was able to make this patient smile again.
 
This is called an All On 4. Each arch is secured and supported by a hybrid denture that is screw retained. The implants keep the teeth anchored to the jawbone, just like natural teeth. This technique gives patients who have lost multiple teeth, the option for a beautiful and functional smile.

Positive patient outcomes are crucial to Dr. Sands.
