Our Family Dental Practice in Cerritos


In 1985, Dr. Philip Kress established his practice to serve the community of Cerritos and the neighboring cities of Artesia and La Palma. In that time, Dr. Kress and his entire staff have come to consider all of their patients as family. It is this commitment to the relationships we have built that drive us to provide quality dental care and support for our area.


Excellence in Dentistry

With over 30 years of experience, Dr. Kress has a great deal of insight and experience regarding the procedures he performs. Our dentist takes a conservative approach whenever possible to provide the most appropriate treatment. In addition, he keeps up to date on state-of-the-art technologies to improve the functionality and beauty of your smile.

Prevention and Education

Prevention is fundamental to optimal oral health and education is the tool necessary to accomplish this. Dr. Kress believes this education must start in childhood and be part of a daily routine for all members of the family. We aim to be a resource for you and your family and are available to help whenever you need us. Dr. Kress puts a strong emphasis on his own education and regularly participates in continuing education opportunities to remain current on emerging advances in dentistry.

Caring For Your Overall Wellness

Dr. Kress’ philosophy of considering the whole person, including an individual’s health and well-being, is as important to him as any procedure he performs. In our office, we will take a complete medical history and encourage you to tell us about any health issues you may have recently experienced. This allows us to ensure that your diagnosis is accurate and that the care our dentist provides is comprehensive.
