Customized Treatment for the Whole Family

At Philip Shindler Family & Cosmetic Dentistry, the staff is especially proud of the relationships they build with their patients, many of whom travel out of state to the practice, and others they met as children who brought their own kids back years later.

“We see this incredible gift as a testament to our office culture, the value of the honest services we provide, and the dedication to our patients in every procedure, phone call and experience,” says Dr. Shindler, DDS, who specializes in general and cosmetic dentistry at the Agoura Hills practice.

He and his staff offer standard procedures such as cleanings, fillings, crowns, bridges and comprehensive exams that include oral cancer screenings. The practice also conducts the most technologically advanced procedures, such as digital impressions and radiography, single-visit crowns and implant restoration.

“We also focus on cosmetic dental procedures, like veneers, Invisalign, teeth whitening and much more,” Dr. Shindler says.

His practice specializes in family and cosmetic dentistry, “which allows us to provide excellent care to anyone,” Dr. Shindler emphasizes. “But we think it is important that our patients value the time we spend on their treatment as much as we do. We practice care over speed and want our patients to feel that with every visit.”

Philip Shindler Family & Cosmetic Dentistry is also unique for its location inside a beautiful, modern office that’s nestled in the foothills of the Santa Monica Mountains in Agoura. Because the space is surrounded by nature, sunlight streams through all the windows, creating a serene and exquisite setting.

“Not only do our patients enjoy the services we are able to offer…it is the friendly, highly educated staff that make all the difference,” Dr. Shindler notes. “Our patients love that our practice is centered on individualized treatment plans designed specifically for each person’s needs and goals.”

Ultimately, the personal connection and care that his practice fosters is what separates the practice from others, he added.

“I still call every patient in the evening following a large procedure to check on them. I adjust my availability to be of service and have a fantastic emergency service that can always reach me so I can treat my patients.”

Dr. Shindler, who has been in practice for more than three decades, decided to pursue dentistry when he was in high school because he wanted to follow a medical profession that allowed him to contribute directly to the well-being of patients.

Today, he is a dedicated member of the American Dental Association and California Dental Association and has advanced certificates in the treatment of sleep apnea, implant restoration and cutting-edge cosmetic solutions.

“On a fun note, I’ve also had the honor of using my skills to help animals in need,” says Dr. Shindler, who has performed root canals on lions, bears gorillas, pumas and other exotic animals and is also a volunteer at a local animal rescue clinic.

Looking back on his vocation, he says the people he has met over the years “have made this journey truly enjoyable.”

“I’ve treated celebrities, families and colleagues, and each has their own treatment story,” he says. “I love that my practice impacts people’s lives for the better and I get to see the results of that every day.”
