Dr. Mellert is also the 3rd generation of the Mellert family to practice dentistry in Los Angeles! He enjoys practicing dentistry alongside his daughter, Dr. Houck, to provide patients a multidisciplinary approach to dentistry.
Early in his career, Dr. Mellert developed a passion for periodontal therapy including gum grafting and implant placement. Over the past forty years of his career, he has dedicated an average of 50 hours annually to continuing education focusing on the advances in periodontal treatment including connective tissue grafting with the PinHole® Surgical Technique and the VISTA Technique. Dr. Mellert is so gratified by seeing the amazing long term successful dental results over the span of decades. There are many patients in our practice who have been treated by at least three generations of Mellert dentists!
Exceeding all patient’s expectations with the ease of dental treatment and helping an extremely anxious patient overcome their greatest fear is the most rewarding aspect of dentistry to Dr. Mellert. He strives to provide the best and easiest option to meet each of his patient’s dental needs.
