History of our Partnership
Dr. David Wagner and Dr. Dan Pinar met seven years ago when Dr. Wagner was in residency at UCLA. Dr. Wagner was looking to network with LA’s like-minded and best dentists— genuine, caring, friendly, and super talented with great practices made up of amazing patients.
Dr. Wagner reached out to Dr. Pinar and they met for dinner in West Hollywood—and immediately hit it off. They realized they share a lot of common ground—Midwest roots, the love of big city life, high ethical standards, a commitment to creating a gentle and caring patient environment, and a desire to provide nothing but the best dental care.
While Dr. Wagner went on to practice in a thriving Santa Monica office for the past 6 years, Dr. Pinar maintained his busy and successful practice in West Hollywood. Over the years, Drs. Pinar and Wagner stayed close, often meeting for dinner to catch up and “talk shop” about everything new and exciting that was happening in dentistry, and life. After Dr. McFadden’s retirement and the completion of Dr. Pinar’s new office on Beverly Boulevard, Dr. Pinar and Dr. Wagner decided it was time to join forces and establish a dental partnership.
Drs. Pinar and Wagner are excited to be practicing together, and together they will uphold the same compassionate, patient-centered approach that has always existed, and collaborate to deliver the communities of West Hollywood, Los Angeles, and beyond, a modern, individualized, caring experience.
Drs. Pinar and Wagner are passionate guys— about enjoying life, about advocating for patients, about advanced learning and staying at the forefront of the profession, providing the highest level of dental care that is possible.
