About Our Downtown LA Dental Office

We the Only Full-Service & Emergency Downtown LA Dental Office

Helping You to Feel & Look Better since 2012

High-Tech & High Quality Pain-free Personalized Dentistry

Our downtown LA dental office was founded by Dr. Charles Huang, a popular LA dentist known to many of his patients as Dr. Charlie, has been providing personalized pain-free dental care to residents of downtown Los Angeles for over 10 years. Finding a reliable full-service LA dental office can be a challenge, so Dr. Charlie’s gentle demeanor and painless dental care soon developed quite a following – just check out his reviews on Yelp and Google or LA dental patients’ testimonials on our website!

In 2012, Dr. Huang opened his own Downtown LA dental office – River Dentistry – in one of the Downtown LA hottest spots, Westin Bonaventure Hotel. Frequently featured in movies and on TV, this iconic Los Angeles landmark is centrally located in the Financial District of DTLA. Our Los Angeles dental office offers convenient valet parking and is easily accessible from anywhere in LA and surrounding areas by car and metro.

River Dentistry was envisioned by Dr. Huang to become the most technologically advanced full-service downtown LA dental office to offer pain-free comprehensive dental care in a friendly and relaxing spa-like environment. We guarantee not only rejuvenating pain-free comfortable dental care, but also the best customer service and superior quality of all our products and procedures, including dentalcleaning, deep cleaning, fillings, veneers, crowns, implants, root canals, extractions, Invisalign, and much more.

While many LA dental offices refer out patients requiring a root canals or extraction to specialists, at River Dentistry you can enjoy comprehensive dental care in one convenient location, in the heart of Downtown Los Angeles – in-office and often in one visit. We offer a full range of preventive and cosmetic dental treatments, as well as specialized services. You won’t need to visit multiple Los Angeles dental offices for pulling wisdom teeth, implants, or Invisalign – we will take care of you. But we do not stop there: our ultimate goal is not only improve the beauty your smile and dental health but to improve your overall health and quality of life.

Wesley C. Los Angeles, CA

Dr. Charlie and his staff were friendly and took good care of me during my visit. I recommend if you are looking for a dentist to give River Dentistry a try. I HATE going to the dentist, but all my fears aside, they took great care to make sure I was comfortable through the procedures. Definitely recommended! (Yelp Review)

Michael O. Beverly Hills, CA

I recently moved to LA and was looking for a dentist. The Yelp reviews were 100% positive, so I had to check it out. From the very beginning each staff member was warm and friendly... and proceeded to do a great job. These guys are really great. Amazing customer service and genuine concern. A very satisfied customer 🙂 (Yelp Review)

Mala L. Los Angeles, CA

What a find! Needed a dentist in my area that was open on Saturday and, to my great pleasure, I found River Dentistry. I went in because of a chipped front tooth and came out with a fresh clean smile. Dr. Huang is amazing with his work and also with the care and attention he provides [to] his patients. (Yelp Review)
