The word “dentistry” can be defined as treatment of oral diseases and conditions. In Los Angeles, it means much more. Of course, Dr. Don Mungcal and his team at Downtown Dental care for teeth and gums. We also care about friends and neighbors in LA communities, and we show it!
Paying it forward by helping others pays big dividends in the long term, but sometimes, life gets so busy that it is hard to find time. We try to set a great example, taking time away from the office to spread the word about oral health and wellness through charitable giving and participation:
- AIDS Walk Los Angeles.
- Donations of oral hygiene products to Downtown Women’s Center.
- FIDM health fair.
- Heart of the City’s annual walk/run.
- MOCA employee health and wellness fair.
- Public Safety appreciation celebration.
- YMCA stair climb.
- Many other local events.
Smiles that speak volumes
One of our favorite aspects of these events is seeing big, confident smiles that we helped to create. Downtown Dental offers a full range of preventive and hygiene services, general/restorative dentistry, and cosmetic treatments that transform good smiles into fabulous ones:
- Teeth whitening – Convenient home kits to brighten teeth safely, with minimal risk of sensitivity.
- Porcelain veneers — For stunning color and a straight, even appearance.
- Invisalign – Look terrific while straightening your teeth with these clear aligners.
- Tooth-colored fillings and dental bonding – A quick, economical fix for many appearance issues.
- Dental crowns and bridges – Beautiful smile restoration.
- Dental implants – The lifetime option for a complete smile.
We hope to see you at a Los Angeles community event. When you spot any team member (we’ll be in the bright blue Downtown Dental shirts), stop by and say “hello” and ask any questions you might have about our dentistry services. Or simply call 213-863-9464 to schedule an appointment.
