Los Angeles general dentist gives you many reasons to smile


Los Angeles General Dentist
As the country’s second most populous metropolitan area, Downtown Dental understands you have a lot of choices when it comes to health care partners. There are more than 6,000 general dentists in Los Angeles, Long Beach, and Anaheim. Nationwide more than 65 percent of dentists fall into the general category. As your choice for a Los Angeles dentist, Downtown Dental takes the responsibility of guiding you toward better overall health (through oral health) seriously. Yet, Drs Don Mungcal and Elizabeth Loftus know how to create a friendly and relaxed environment. Professional doesn’t mean stuffy at our office. It means knowledge and expertise that you can count on, within an environment that balances sophisticated technologies with the comforts of home. Our office abides by the highest standards of sterilization.

General in dentistry refers to the comprehensive services that Drs Mungcal and Loftus are qualified to provide. These services include preventive professional cleanings, guidance on at-home care, treatment of periodontal disease and dental decay, and cosmetic treatments such as take-home whitening and porcelain veneers. While you should expect a wide range of treatments from general dentists, offices stand apart in myriad ways. Downtown Dental distinguishes itself from other Los Angeles-area dentists with:
  • Attention to details, focused on the patient experience. For instance, our team prides itself on seeing every patient on time, every time. Care calls after procedures are provided at Downtown Dental. And, yes, parking is validated! The list of the little things that add up to a big, positive visit goes on and on …
  • The latest in gentle and convenient techniques and technologies, for the best outcomes – Drs Mungcal and Loftus build crowns and other restorations with the CEREC system in a single visit – no wait! Diagnostics are safe and easy. Instead of uncomfortable, messy impressions that tend to induce gagging, Downtown Dental uses comfortable, precision intraoral cameras and 3-Dimensional digital imaging that emits a fraction of the radiation produced by conventional X-rays. Lasers and the pinhole® gum rejuvenation technique offer gentle and non-invasive alternatives to many of the traditional sources of dental fear: drills, scalpels, needles, and numbing anesthetic. In addition to minimizing discomfort and bleeding, these technologies also promote natural and fast healing.

The office challenges the dental fear that keeps patients away from getting the care they need to stay healthy in many other ways, too. Your dentist can safely help you relax, with a sedative option for every patient – regardless of the degree or severity of dental fear. Downtown Dental is trained and equipped to provide oral conscious sedation with a calming medication suited to your needs. Sedation may also be administered intravenously. Patients also appreciate this helping hand, should they have a bad gag reflex, or if they’re undergoing long procedures or a series of complex treatments. Whatever the case may be, your comfort is Downtown Dental’s priority.

Downtown Dental challenges other barriers to dental care, including:
  • Access – Lead Dentist Dr. Mungcal left no stone unturned in the design of his practice. He and the team understand that there are many commitments competing for your precious time – from work to school to family and social activities. Every effort is made to ensure it’s easy to get to our office and to maintain your ongoing appointments, be it routine professional cleanings and check-ups or restorative work to make your teeth or gums healthy again. We are open every weekday, including early mornings. We are also available by appointment on the weekends and weekday evenings. Emergency needs are addressed promptly. Treatment is also efficient; for instance, in addition to same-day crowns, we offer same-day implants that are placed strategically to avoid costly and time-consuming bone grafting procedures. Cosmetic treatments such as Invisalign straighten teeth in around half of the time of conventional braces, while temporary porcelain veneers allow you to try on your improved teeth while permanent veneers are being made.
  • Cost – If you fear the dental bill more than the dental drill, you’ve come to the right place for quality care that complements your budget. Downtown Dental accepts all PPOs and insurance carriers, and flexible financing plans through CareCredit and Springstone. These options reduce out-of-pocket costs or spread expenses across several months or years, with low to no interest depending on your credit history.
Drs Mungcal and Loftus are transparent about treatment options and expenses. Their emphasis on prevention, aided by sophisticated diagnostics (like oral DNA testing), minimizes the need for extensive restorative procedures that cost more (time and money).

Downtown Dental is happy to give you this glimpse into general dentistry that is anything but ordinary in terms of quality. Call (213) 863-9464 to experience these differences for yourself.

I am so glad I came to Downtown Dental. From the moment I walked into the office I was met with a smile and a warm welcome. During my first visit, a dental plan was made for me and they got to work right away. I have never experienced such attention to detail and such excellent customer service at a dental office. During my root canal procedure and fillings everyone was extremely helpful and constantly making sure I was comfortable. Since then, I am encouraging everyone to check out Downtown Dental, they really are amazing.
