About Dr. Michael Kosdon
Michael Kosdon, DDS was trained at the prestigious USC School of Dentistry, and maintains a state-of-the-art practice in Los Angeles, as well as New York. He has devoted his career to giving patients improved dental health and a bright, stunning smile utilizing the most advanced treatments and techniques available. Dr. Kosdon is a member of the American Dental Association, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and other major dental organizations. Dr. Kosdon focuses on providing comprehensive dental care using safe techniques that have proven effective. He is committed to custom-tailoring all care to each individual patient, and ensuring your visit with us is as anxiety-free as possible.
Dr. Kosdon knows the impact a smile can have on someone’s life and self confidence. Even though Dr. Kosdon was the son of a dentist, he was not born with a nice set of teeth. In fact, his teeth were very short and discolored with large gaps or spaces between them. Growing up he was always embarrassed to smile, he often covered his teeth when laughing. Fortunately, advancements in modern cosmetic dentistry gave him a chance to improve his smile. Dr. Kosdon had porcelain dental veneers done to correct some of these blemishes; Dr. Kosdon has not stopped smiling since. Experiencing his own smile transformation was the driving factor in his passion for cosmetic dentistry and why he chose to specialize in smile makeovers and porcelain veneers.
I know firsthand that having a great smile can completely change one’s life. My whole personality and confidence changed after having my smile fixed, and I have dedicated my life to giving my patients the beautiful smile they deserve.
~ Dr. Kosdon
