To fully care for all of your oral health and smile needs, 26th Street Dental are general dentists in Santa Monica, California. Our dentists and dental team provide a variety of dental services in Santa Monica, including:
Prevention is the cornerstone of our dental philosophy.
Exams and digital X-rays
Routine dental exams, x-rays, and oral cancer screenings are vital to ensuring long-term oral health. Our expertly trained doctors are adept at detecting potential problems before they start. Make sure you are having routine exams to prevent dental decay, infections, and pain today!
Prevention is the best, most cost effective and pain-free way to create long-term dental health. By visiting your dental hygienist 2-4 times per year (everyone’s needs are different 🙂 ), you are investing in the future of your oral health. Your experienced dental hygienist is your champion of healthy gums. By ridding your mouth of plaque and tartar you are preventing a multitude of unwanted dental problems including bad breath, bleeding gums, bone loss, cavities, even tooth loss.
Our experienced and knowledgeable doctors and dental hygienists believe education is one of the most important aspects of a dental visit. Cavity prevention, nutrition, brushing and flossing techniques, as well as tips and tricks allow our patients to prevent serious dental issues.
Simple fluoride treatments can go a long way in preventing tooth decay. Topical application of fluoride at your preventative cleaning is a safe and effective measure to prevent and even treat minor tooth decay.
When the unexpected happens, we’ve got you covered. Call us today to make an appointment:
We know how painful and scary a broken tooth may be. Whether your child fell off their skateboard, you encountered an unexpected rogue golf ball on the 18th hole, or you just accidentally tripped and fell up the stairs, we are here to help. In these cases, call us immediately and if possible keep the tooth submerged in milk.
Rarely, teeth may become infected and create what is called a dental abscess. This can result in painful swelling and bad tastes in your mouth. It is critical to call us immediately and be seen for an evaluation to get to the root of the problem (pun intended). Seriously though, we are here to help. Don’t hesitate to call.
Restoring your smile back to the happier you.
We only use the latest and best composite resins here at 26th Street Dental. They are both durable and aesthetically pleasing. You wont know they are there.
Out of all the dental treatments, root canals have the most undeserving reputation. A root canal is used to prevent the loss of a badly decayed or infected tooth. With modern techniques and local anesthesia, root canal therapy is not what you expect.
Dentures and Partials
Dentures and partials are a removable option to replace missing teeth. They are usually fabricated in a few visits and can be a great non-surgical option to replace missing teeth.
At times a white filling is just not enough to ensure a tooth’s long-term health. Crowns correct weakened or badly decayed teeth with a predictable and long term solution.
Extractions and Implant Dentistry
When a tooth is severely broken down, decayed, or infected, it might not be restorable. In those rare instances, we are lucky to have dental implants as a solution. Dental implants are a predictable, long term option for missing teeth and we are happy to be able to provide this service.
At 26th Street Dental, we understand that, “A warm smile is the universal language of kindness.”
To that end, we are very attuned to patients’ aesthetic needs and have the latest training and technology to facilitate delivering a beautiful smile upgrade.
Teeth Whitening Services
Many things in your daily routine can darken a great smile over time. Maybe you’re a java-holic and can’t pass up your favorite cup from Caffe Luxxe, either way, we can help you re-discover that perfect smile with our Philips Zoom Whitening service. It is a 100% safe, non-invasive technique to rejuvenate your smile while keeping your enamel completely intact.
Cavities happen to the best of us. This doesn’t mean you should have to have an unsightly silver filling to fix it. Here we place tooth colored resins so that it looks like you never had a cavity.
To be imperceptible is always the goal when placing crowns in the smile zone. 26th Street Dental works with the highest quality dental labs in the LA area in order to provide the most natural looking crowns possible.
These days braces aren’t just for kids, adults are joining the fun. Whether you had braces as a kid and you relapsed slightly because you forgot to wear your retainer or you never had braces at all – Invisalign clear aligners stealthily straighten your teeth without the unsightly metal brackets or wires.
Veneers can transform your smile to the one you’ve always wanted! They are a great way of correcting chipped, stained, and irregularly shaped teeth. We offer digital smile designs so you can see what the final product will look like prior to starting.

Dr. Angie Dunkling spares no goofy facial expressions to achieve this goal!
