Everyone deserves access to excellent dental care provided by professionals who take the time to get to know their patients as distinct individuals. Sheena Vaswani, DDS, and the team at Los Altos Family Smiles meet those needs for families of all ages, including children, in and around Los Altos, California.

Los Altos Family Smiles strives to create memorable positive experiences in the dental chair. This is not a practice where patients are treated like numbers on a spreadsheet; everyone who entrusts the office with their care becomes a valued member of the Los Altos practice family. 

Preventive dentistry is a cornerstone of the practice. Comprehensive dental exams and professional cleanings check for signs of decay or disease, allowing interventions in the earliest possible stages.

Restorative treatments like fillings, crowns, root canals, and dental implants seek to preserve as much healthy tissue as possible while also strengthening, repairing, or replacing teeth. This conservative approach avoids unnecessary treatments and procedures.  

Cosmetic dentistry is another area of focus. An artistic eye guides all cosmetic treatments, and each patient’s unique bone structure and facial contouring are taken into consideration when planning cosmetic enhancements. 

Patients with dental anxiety have come to the right place when they entrust Los Altos Family Smiles with their care. Compassionate, personalized sedation dentistry options are available to help everyone get the care they need without undue anxiety.

Meeting the team at Los Altos Family Smiles begins with a quick phone call or a visit to the online booking page, so make today the day you move one step closer to your new dental home.
