Let us introduce ourselves


We are a dental practice devoted to restoring and enhancing the natural beauty of your smile using conservative, state-of-the-art procedures that will result in beautiful, long lasting smiles!

High Standards

A standard of excellence in personalized dental care enables us to provide the quality dental services our patients deserve.  We provide comprehensive treatment planning and use restorative and cosmetic dentistry to achieve your optimal dental health.  Should a dental emergency occur, we make every effort to see and care for you as soon as possible.

Education & Prevention

As a practice, we are true believers that preventive care and education are the keys to optimal dental health.  We strive to provide “dental health care” vs. “disease care”.  That’s why we focus on thorough exams – checking the overall health of your teeth and gums, performing oral cancer exams, and taking x-rays when necessary.  We also know that routine cleanings, flossing, sealants, and fluoride are all helpful in preventing dental disease.  Not only are we focused on the beauty of your smile, we’re also concerned about your health.  A review of your medical history can help us stay informed of your overall health, any new medications, and any illnesses that may impact your dental health.

Uncompromising Safety

Infection control in our office is also very important to us.  To protect our patients and ourselves, we strictly maintain sterilization and cross contamination processes using standards recommended by the American Dental Association (ADA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Center for Disease Control (CDC).

Training & Expertise

As your dental health professionals, we want you to be confident knowing that we are a team of highly trained and skilled clinicians.  We pride ourselves in providing the care you need to keep your smile healthy.  To give you the best possible service and results, we are committed to continual education and learning.  We attend dental lectures, meetings, and dental conventions to stay informed of new techniques, the latest products, and the newest equipment that a modern dental office can utilize to provide state-of-the-art dental care.  Also, being members of various professional dental associations helps us to stay abreast of the changes and recommendations for our profession.

In addition to General Dentistry and Cosmetic Dentistry, we work with specialists in Periodontics (gum diseases), Implant Dentistry, and Endodontics (root canal treatments), as well as other specialists.

A Positive Experience

Building a foundation of trust by treating our patients as special individuals is vital to our success.  We understand how uneasy some patients may feel about their dental visits, and how we can make a difference in providing a relaxing and positive experience.  Our entire team is dedicated to providing you with excellent, personalized care and service to make your visits as comfortable and pleasant as possible.

We thank you for allowing us to take care of your dental needs and look forward to serving you.

A little about me…


My name is Dr. Rosi Shrestha. It will be my pleasure to provide for all your dental needs.
I have been practicing family and cosmetic dentistry for manyyears and I love what I do! I strive to always provide excellent care while keeping you comfortable and happy. My dental team and I are proud to bring you a full line of dental services including techniques and leading edge technology that have proven to make a big difference.

A little about me… 

Hailing from the beautiful Himalayan country of Nepal, I eventually moved to California to be with my now husband, a native Californian.  We initially meant in Nepal but that is another story.  We are the parents of a three-year old who is anxious to be four.

I have extensive training both here in the US, where I completed my doctorate and post graduate programs, as well as in southeast Asia where I graduated from a leading dental school.  I practiced in South Florida before moving to California.  I was practicing in the heart of Marina Del Rey for seven years and I was ecstatic to move my practice to my own office in Torrance earlier this year.  Come see me!

Thank you,. I look forward to serving you now and in the future. 

Most Sincerely
Dr. Shrestha

Lasers are a non-surgical approach to arresting the progression of periodontal disease. Following scaling and root planing, a laser is used to significantly reduce the bacterial colonies and decontaminate the infected periodontal pocket. Lasers also remove the infected tissue lining the periodontal pocket. As the infected tissue is removed, microscopic blood clots form and your body’s natural healing response takes over. As you heal, the tissue reattaches to the bone and your gums return to a healthy infection-free state.


Digital X-rays offer a huge advantage in early detection and preventive services. Advanced image manipulation and analysis, for example, allows your doctor to detect early stages of gum disease through recognition of bone level changes, or by evaluating the results against a previous treatment.


An intraoral camera is an indispensable diagnostic and educational tool. The tiny video camera moves around inside of your mouth and generates a tooth by tooth video exam of your teeth. Using an intraoral camera allows patients to better understand their dental needs by seeing what the dentist sees and then having it explained.


We believe that to deliver the highest quality dentistry to our patients that it is best to have expert labs support us in making the highest quality crowns, inlays and onlays. We have worked with in-house milling before but we believe to match the best quality we need the best lab technicians that do nothing but make amazing products. That is why we prefer to partner with the best.


Electronic Dental Records are an integrated part of our practice management system. Our paperless system delivers electronic charting, digital imaging and enhanced case presentation where it is needed most… at chair side.
