Philosophy

Upon entering the office of Dr. Rifkin, guests are immediately clued in to his ever-apparent appreciation for aesthetics. From the sweeping panoramic views of the Beverly Hills mountains, to the spacious treatment rooms where he uses digital and microscope-guided technology, beauty relays itself in the form of innovation, consistency and detail-oriented patient care. “In my work, I have to bring life to inanimate objects and make them emulate natural structures and materials like enamel and dentin. To me, it’s art, but my medium is the body,” says Dr. Rifkin. To help further put his patients at ease, he also offers IV sedation, administered by a board-certified anesthesiologist. Dr. Rifkin offers the ultimate dental experience in his Suite 1200. As the only suite of its kind in Beverly Hills, his guests enjoy VIP concierge services, a private lounge, and beverage and food services.

About My Practice

Why is microscope-enhanced dentistry integral to your approach?

Just like an eye, hand, or brain surgeon uses a microscope, I feel it's important to do so for accuracy. A microscope allows me to better diagnose decay, cracks and other pathologies that may escape detection without this form of magnification. My dental operating microscope also allows me to be more gentle to the teeth and gum tissue during procedures, and provide a more accurate restoration.

How do you involve patients in their care?

I involve my patients by taking the time to hear them. My initial consultation consists of gathering records, taking photographs, and having conversations about what their needs are. The information is then utilized to create a computer presentation that identifies their conditions, confirms their personal goals and defines my recommendations. After all, there is a personalized design DNA in every patient's smile unlike any other, because your facial composition is unique.

What factors do you look at when designing a smile?

I create a composition that is appropriate for every patient given his or her gender, age, body type and ethnic background. To achieve a natural-looking smile, the dentist has to understand those differences.

How do you ensure patient satisfaction?

I don't depend on a laboratory technician or a faraway lab. I have my own lab and technicians and we are intimately involved in each patient's smile makeover. Patients come to see me because they know that I'm always the master architect executing their vision.

About Me

How does your artistic eye help you design smiles?
