Finding a Compassionate Dentist in Encino, California

We realize for many the thought of dentistry, root canals and surgeries can conjure up feelings of fear, apprehension and embarrassment. We enjoy working with you to gain your comfort, relaxation and confidence in our office. We love hearing patients say, “That wasn’t bad,” or “I had fun,” or “I can’t believe I fell asleep during treatment.”

The option of IV or oral sedation helps patients with dental anxiety or phobia, jaw joint disease, limited opening or “gag reflex” more quickly and comfortably manage their dental needs. We love hearing these patients revel in the fact that they have handled their dental needs without any problem.

Main Goals for Our Patients

“We designed our practice for people to come to us in whatever state their dental health might be so that we can give them the smile they deserve. There’s no judgment here. We are here to help people.” – Matthew Okui DDS

People also choose us as their dentist in Encino because of our extensive specialties in Endodontics and Periodontics.

Specifically here are some of the goals we have for our patients:

  • Preserve teeth
  • Regain dental health
  • Repair dental damage
  • Find solutions
  • Restore functionality

We find that people don’t want to lose their teeth so we start with a solid approach to repairing their basic dental foundation. Dr. Tatsuta is known for using the surgical microscope to remove buildup and infection from the tooth root, updating the patient’s dental health and preserving the life of the tooth.

Dr. Tatsuta is also an expert in finding the root cause of oral and facial pain that might have been previously difficult to diagnose for many patients.

“I am drawn to the patient that wants to preserve the tooth. Many times people think that the solution is to simply pull it. My work’s focus is to show the patient that total tooth health is possible. It just takes the right treatment to get them back on track. I like doing that for my patients, restoring their dental health.”
– Cynthia Tatsuta DDS

Once the patient has regained his or her dental health, Dr. Okui, as a respected Encino cosmetic dentist, can create natural beauty with new super thin materials.

If a patient has struggled to maintain their dental health but, through no fault of their own, needs relief and pain free functionality, Dr. Okui is also an excellent dental implant dentist. With comfortable sleep dentistry, Dr. Okui can perform full mouth dental implants in a single visit.

Both Dr. Tatsuta and Dr. Okui have advanced training in sedation dentistry. When a patient needs a root canal with Dr. Tatsuta or extensive periodontal treatment with Dr. Okui, he or she can rest peacefully under the careful monitoring of professionals.

Both doctors have advanced skill in keeping the patient safe at every second of their treatment.

“My experience was outstanding. My options for treatment were discussed in a way that allowed me to make an informed decision. The staff was friendly and helpful at all times. Dr. Okui did an excellent job – what a wonderful professional! He called me the same evening to see how I was doing. His office called the next day to see if everything was going well and if I had any questions. All in all, this was an excellent experience.”
