Dr. Dan Pinar, DDS
Personal Statement

When I was a kid, I hated going to the dentist. And confession time - I actually still do. What that means for you is that there is no one who will be more sympathetic and gentle than me. 

I value your time as if it were my own. You will be seen promptly at your appointed time.

I am an absolute believer of conservative treatment. Keeping dental work small and conservative may take a little longer, but it always gives the best results. 

And I realize that going to the dentist can be a little like bringing your car to the garage – who knows if your car needs all the work they say it does. I expect that anyone I give advice to will find a second opinion, and I’m confident they’ll get the same recommendation. Our success is only sustainable when it’s in the best interest of all parties involved.

Brief Bio

Before moving to West Hollywood, Dr. Dan Pinar owned and operated his own dental practice in Nyack, New York, about 20 miles outside of Manhattan, for eight years. One of his ‘calling cards’ has long been his gentle demeanor in the office, which has translated into strong loyalty; patients have repeatedly told him that their visits to his office have been the best dental visits of their adult lives.

He provides the highest quality of care in all of the specialty disciplines including restorative, endodontics, and cosmetics. Whether your need is implants to replace missing teeth, veneers to improve your smile, teeth whitening, a root canal or anything else, Dr. Pinar’s experience and care will help guide you through the process.

Before embarking on his professional career, he was born and raised in a small town in the Upper Peninsula of Michigan. After eight years at the University of Michigan, he moved to New York City where he spent eleven years. He arrived in Los Angeles in January 2009 seeking a warmer climate, friendlier faces and new challenges.
