Choosing a Dentist

What Should You Look for in a Dentist?

Does your dentist care about you? I mean, REALLY care about you – like family?

Establishing rewarding and lasting relationships with our patients is important to us here at Dr. Cohen’s dental practice. We pledge excellence in all that we do, and we look forward to helping you make the most of your smile now and for many years to come. The comfort and satisfaction of our patients is of tremendous importance. We want to impress upon our patients that, in this dental office, the patient comes first. We encourage open communication between our patients and our staff.

Make sure you choose a dentist that does the same.


It takes four years for an undergraduate degree and another 4 years for a dental degree. This however is really just the beginning of a dentist’s journey! What happens from here is what really determines the competency of your dentist.

Ask your potential dentist about his/her continuing education. This is where you will find the dentist that matches your needs. If you have minimal dental needs then most dentists will be good candidates for you. If you have more extensive, possibly complex dental needs then look for advanced, hands-on training type courses.

Dr. Jeffrey L. Cohen, DDS has spent many years taking primarily hands-on advanced care training to deal with anything from making fillings look like natural enamel to replacing missing teeth with dental mplants to full mouth Bioesthetic Rejuvenations. We are ready to help you – whatever your needs!


Okay – so talk is cheap – right? Anyone can buy a book of sample dentistry showing before-and-after photographs. Ask your potential dentist to show you pictures of his/her work – take a look at their actual results. All the pictures you see on our website, in our photo books and on the walls of our office are our patients – please feel free to ask about any of them.

Our dental team in the Covina office is well versed in all areas of dentistry. We offer gentle, modern, diagnostic, preventative, restorative, reconstructive, and cosmetic dental techniques that provide for the maintenance, restoration or replacement of your natural teeth – All done in a way that is comfortable, safe and pain-free.

I believe that life is better when you have great teeth. That’s why we do what we do and take the extra steps needed for your comfort. We believe that you should be free from oral discomfort – able to eat the foods you enjoy, and able to express yourself with the confidence of a great smile.
