What We Treat
Our Los Angeles endodontists are experts at saving teeth. With years of specialized training above and beyond dental school, our root canal specialists are board-certified and experienced at diagnosing and healing tooth pain as well as performing procedures relating to the inside of your teeth.
We define the success of treatments and procedures not just in terms of the teeth and mouth but of the whole body.
We’re here at our Santa Monica endodontics office to assist you on your health journey by solving oral health concerns with a holistic approach. Every patient is an active participant in their care, empowered and working side-by-side with the doctors to achieve optimal health.
A precision-based methodology created by holistic endodontist Dr. Valerie Kanter.
The Integrative Endodontics™️ method is a holistic dentistry approach that focuses on patient education and the overall patient experience defined by:
- Preservation of the natural teeth
- A holistic approach to oral/systemic health
- Biomimetic dentistry
- Use of lasers
Teethpasttin™️ is the foundation of oral care.
As a product, Teethpasttin™️ is a toothpaste that contains the essentials for a healthy smile and a healthy body while excluding harsh and harmful ingredients commonly found in toothpaste. As a routine, Teethpasttin™️ is the act of brushing one’s teeth correctly and with the healthiest ingredients possible for optimal oral health.
I will only ever have dental work done here in the future. They have the most high-tech equipment, use methods and materials that are actually good for your teeth and health, and I have full confidence in the team.

Dr. Val is one of the best educators I have ever met! Her knowledge and passion for teaching are by far superior to most of my previous courses in the endodontic and holistic world.
The best! Deserves a million stars.
In Dr. Kanter’s capable, kind and gifted hands I feel safe and that I am getting the best care possible.
Lauren S., MD
If I could give more stars I would. What an amazing place. So professional, efficient, upbeat, kind, compassionate, and way ahead of anyone else in the field.
I highly recommend her to anyone who needs one of the best endodontists who isn’t just trying to get you for your money but genuinely wants to save your tooth & avoid doing a root canal at all costs.
Hands down the best truly holistic specialized dental practice one can get in LA… I feel safe and know I’ll get the best possible treatment when I am on that chair in Dr. Kanter’s office.
I was literally so relaxed and pain-free during the procedure that I actually dozed off a couple of times.
Root canals can be stressful, but Dr. Kanter proved they don’t need to be. She was thorough in her explanation of what was going on in my mouth, recommended the treatment, and we got through it very easily.
Guiding you to optimal health.
