Lawrence - Dentist

Tooth decay chaser by day, hot dog eating champion by night. A native Southern Californian, Lawrence started as a dental hygienist and then earned his dental degree from the University of Southern California (USC) School of Dentistry.  Following dental school, after having watched Top Gun way too many times, Lawrence served our country in theUS Navy for four years, including two years overseas in Japan. Inspired by Silicon Beach companies and startups, Lawrence has chosen to open his own dental practice with the same mission: to think differently, and to always challenge the status quo.

Ray - Pediatrics 

Originally from Florida, Dr. Klein is a Board Certified pediatric dentist.When he’s not teaching children all about “sugar bugs,” he can be found doing standup comedy in our break room. It’s never a dull day in the office with Dr. Klein and Mr. Caterpillar around.

Not a stranger to school, Ray spent plenty of years at USC; first graduating from their film school, then heading back for his dental degree and pediatric residency. In his downtime (which isn’t much with two children) he can be found hiking and camping all over our beautiful state, traveling to his wife’s home country of Peru, and attending music concerts of all genres.

Madison - Hygienist 

Gum disease doesn't stand a chance against this Madison, especially with her skills inKrav Maga. Another fellow graduate of the Dental Hygiene program of USC, Madison places a high priority on patient education and ensuring that all patients are in tip-top oral health condition. 

In line with our office philosophy of giving back, Madison volunteers on Skid Row, local elementary schools, and a long-term care facility.  Inspired by her desire to create a global impact with her talents, she served as a medical educator abroad in South Africa, Swaziland, and Peru.  Most recently, Madison travelled to Haiti to teach nutrition and oral health to orphans and their reunited families. 

When she isn’t stamping her passport with global humanitarian missions, you can find her at farmers markets and perusing EaterLA for her next foodie adventure.
