Dentists That Help Our Cause
There’s no way we could do all we do without help from dentists and orthodontists from California. Whether they fly from Los Angeles or come straight from their dental practices in the San Fernando Valley, we owe a great deal to each and every one of them for the dental care they provide. One such dentist we would especially like to thank is the Encino dentist Dr. Linda Makuta of the San Fernando Valley Dental Society who’s advice on Healthgrades and the ADA website Mouth Healthy, where she details her approach to dentistry and what it’s like to be a dentist in Encino California, made a huge difference for the dentists that serve our community here. And while we may not be based in the city of Encino, we do know what it’s like to be a dentist and truly want to serve the community you love like Dr. Linda Makuta does.
