Meet the Doctor
Dr. John R. Linstrom, DDS graduated from top-ranked University Of California, Los Angeles, School Of Dentistry in 1998. He emphasizes a prevention based approach using state of the art microscope enhanced vision for unparalleled accuracy and conservative treatment. He is passionate about patients keeping their teeth for their whole lifetime.
"As a dental professional, I stay up to date on the latest advancements in dentistry in order to provide the most current treatment options for my patients." Dr. Linstrom is a member of the Academy of Microscope Enhanced Dentistry, and he is among the 2% of general dentists in the country that uses dental operating microscopes in every procedure. Dr. Linstrom was invited to return to his alma mater—the UCLA School of Dentistry—to lecture on his use of microscopes in a general dentistry practice.

An Advanced Approach to Preventing, Detecting & Treating Disease
One of Dr. Linstrom's greatest aids in enabling patients to keep their teeth their whole lives is his application of microscope enhanced dentistry.
Where historically dentistry has been end-stage or symptom based (when it may be too late to save a tooth), the microscope can be the key to preventive based dentistry, helping Dr. Linstrom to identify a problem before the patient experiences discomfort or runs out of options.
New patients to the practice, missing a tooth, often have told Dr. Linstrom that they wish the problem had been detected sooner so that they could have saved the tooth.
Using high-resolution 4K cameras directly mounted on his microscopes, gives the patient the option to see everything he sees on an overhead monitor, in real time. This provides complete transparency to the patient from diagnosis through treatment, allowing Dr. Linstrom's patients and their family members to become integral partners in their own oral health care.
Dr. Linstrom says patients often say two things to him when given the option to view their teeth for the first time. First: “I don’t want to watch.” Then, five minutes later: “Could you move your hand? I can’t see the monitor?”
