If you are considering cosmetic dentistry to improve the appearance of your smile, choosing the right cosmetic dentist is essential. Not all cosmetic dentists have the same level of skill and experience. The quality of your results will directly depend on your dentist’s background, hands-on experience, philosophy of care, and personal attention to your needs.

The first and most important factor you should evaluate is a cosmetic dentist’s education. Where did the dentist receive his or her degree? What post-graduate training have they received? Santa Monica cosmetic dentist Dr. Ana Brightleaf studied dentistry at Emory University, where she was ranked #1 in her class. After two years of study, Dr. Brightleaf transferred to the University of Florida’s dental school, where she graduated in the top 5% of her class.

Since then, Dr. Brightleaf has gone on to complete a Masters designation in the Academy of General Dentistry, and has received training in the art of cosmetic dentistry at the prestigious Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies (LVI). She combines her extensive cosmetic dentistry experience with a holistic approach. Her goal is to provide you with cosmetic dentistry results that are just as healthy and functional as they are beautiful.
