Roberta Cerveny, DDS
When I graduated I went into private practice in Sherman Oaks, later moving my practice to Encino where I still am today. Although many of my classmates wanted to go into a specialty area of dentistry, I always knew I wanted to be a general dentist so that I could have the variety and flexibility of doing all types of dentistry. Since graduating, I have been keeping abreast of all the changes going on in the dental field by going to classes and seminars.
I have studied aesthetic dentistry, learning how to do porcelain veneers, crowns, and bridges. I have taken extensive courses at Loma Linda University on placing and restoring implants to replace missing teeth. I keep current on treating gum disease and also study Endodontics, which is treating the canals of an infected tooth. My staff and I keep current with CPR and sterilization techniques because patient care is one of our main concerns. There are other facets of dentistry I have studied over the years and have taken more post-graduate classes than required by law to keep up my license. There are so many new things in dentistry, it is really an exciting time to become a dentist and I love to make people look and feel better about their mouths.
