WELCOME TO OUR DENTAL PRACTICE!

We established our Encino, CA office in 2000, and many patients have been coming to us for their dental needs for over 40 years. At our office we take great pride in providing high quality, high tech patient care while still treating each and every patient as if they were our close friends or family. Many of our patients are surprised by the fact that we almost always run on time, delivering nearly painless dentistry in an efficient manner.

By lecturing Nationwide, Dr. de Oliveira stays on top of many of the advancements in digital dentistry and showcases his work to the very critical eye of thousands of dentists each year.

Thank you for visiting us! View our services to find out what makes us special!

  • MEET DR.AUGUST DE OLIVEIRA

    Dr. August de Oliveira graduated in the top 10% of his class at the University of Washington School of Dentistry in 1997.

    After moving to Los Angeles from Seattle, Dr. de Oliveira did an optional additional year in a General Practice Residency at the VA Sepulveda where he learned advanced techniques in Endodontics (Root Canals), Dental Implants, and Restorative Dentistry.

    Dr. de Oliveira lectures weekly all over the nation on three subjects: CAD/CAM (same day crowns), CBCT (3D x-rays), and dental implants. On implants, he lectures from the basics of single tooth implants, to advanced Edentulous (no teeth) treatment.

    He has been published in many peer reviewed journals and is widely recognized as a pioneer in CBCT Guided Surgery. Dr. de Oliveira has developed software for numerous dental companies and has authored two text books on dental implants.

  • Same Day Crowns

    Dr. de Oliveira uses a machine known as CEREC to make strong, beautiful, metal-free crowns or onlays (a cross between a crown and filling), while you wait! No more googey impressions or temporaries that fall off.

  • Dental Implants

    Dr. de Oliveira lectures nationwide to dentists on how to place implants through a process known as Guided Surgery. With Guided Surgery, many times, implants can be placed endoscopically with no cutting or stitches and virtually no pain.

  • Sleep Apnea Treatment

    Sleep Apnea may have adverse effects on your health ranging from simply being tired all the time to heart problems. The first step is to consult you physician and get a sleep study done to see if you have this condition.

  • Invisalign

    By using these clear trays many adults and teens can do without the unsightly metal brackets and bands associated with conventional braces. With Invisalign, molds of your teeth are taken and trays are made and worn moving the teeth.

  • Cone Beam Technology

    At our office we have been at the forefront of using 3D x-rays (Cone Beam Computed Tomography). A CBCT scan is an x-ray that is taken outside the mouth that can allow us to see dental structures, infection, and types of problems in the skull.

  • "I've been to more dentists than you can imagine and Dr. D is the first one that I actually trust. He's good about answering questions-and I ask a lot of questions. His assistant is really great too-don't remember her name. Oh, and he doesn't make you wait in the waiting room AT ALL. If your appointment is at 10 AM, you can expect to be sitting in the "dental chair" by 10:01 and get this, the dentist will actually be in there with you!"~ Denise C.
  • "Dr. De Olivera, Dr. "D", as he is affectionately called in his office, is honest, competent, personable, and caring. I have never had to wait more than 5 minutes to be seen. I first came to Dr. D, after another dentist said that I needed a root canal. Dr. D, said that he did not think I needed one. When I asked him why he thought the other dentist had said that I did, he replied, "Some dentists are more aggressive than others." Everyone in his office is super friendly, and the second time you go there, they will all know your name."~ Alex L.
  • "Dr. D is the best dentist -ever! I can't recommend him enough. Everyone I have ever sent there is instantly a patient for life - he's just that good!"~ Kathryn G.
