Dr. Valerie Kanter has a truly unique approach to endodontics—she is at the forefront of applying less-invasive, chemical-free, and biological approaches to traditional endodontic therapies such as root canals and microsurgery. A third-generation dentist, Dr. Kanter has a deep understanding of how oral health is connected to overall health and has built her practice around caring for patients’ holistic well-being.
After graduating with her DMD and MS from the University of Florida College of Dentistry with a specialty in Endodontics, Dr. Kanter moved to Los Angeles and quickly established a reputation for outstanding patient-centered care. Many people fear that a root canal procedure will be painful, but Dr. Kanter has a calming, knowledgeable way of explaining what is happening and uses gentle, pain-free techniques to make sure that patients are comfortable. She says, “I want to relieve patients’ pain, and I want to restore and protect their natural teeth and smile if at all possible.”
Dr. Kanter is passionate about sharing her knowledge with other dental health practitioners and patients, especially regarding biological dental care and advanced regenerative endodontics. She teaches at the prestigious UCLA School of Dentistry and stays at the forefront of the latest research and studies on regenerative endodontics, less invasive laser therapies, and other advances in natural, chemical-free oral health care. She and her professional staff are actively integrating mercury-safe amalgam filling removal techniques, stem cell therapy, regenerative therapies, the newest laser technologies, homeopathic protocols, and fluoride-free dentistry into their practice.
