About Our Dental Office - La Cañada Flintridge, CA
World-Class Care without the Gimmicks
If you take a moment to look at most dental websites today, it almost seems like the practice wants to be an electronics store. They talk about TVs on the ceiling, noise-canceling headphones, and all types of gadgets that really miss the point of dental care—helping patients feel better and look their best. That’s our mission here at Harry T. Albert, DDS, and Dr. Albert looks forward to welcoming you into our small, family-oriented practice where your needs and satisfaction are always our #1 priorities.
Our Dental Mission
Our dental mission is simple, but you won’t find it put into practice at most other offices. We strive to provide completely personalized care for patients of all ages, an approach that is designed to make appointments more comfortable and results more attractive and long-lasting. Here, you’re not just a name on our schedule, but a full person with wants, needs, and goals that we’ll always consider when recommending care. You’ll never hear a sales pitch, and we’ll only talk about the services you absolutely need to maintain optimal health.
When you step into our office, you won’t be greeted by the hum of fluorescent lights, a TV blaring, and stiff chairs. Rather, our waiting area is filled with comfortable seating and decor—we specifically designed it to resemble a den so you can kick back, relax, and let any nerves quickly melt away. Our team will also greet you with a smile and take the time to ask about your family and interests. You’ll be amazed at how much we remember from appointment to appointment! After a while, our office will feel like an extension of your own home.
Infection Control & Sterilization
Our team goes above and beyond the protocols set forth by the ADA and OSHA to ensure our patients and team stay safe and healthy. We don’t overcrowd our waiting area, we clean and sanitize our treatment rooms and instruments between patients, and we perform procedures in a manner that minimizes aerosolization. Whatever standards are set forth by state and federal agencies, we exceed them, so you can enjoy peace of mind at every appointment.
Quality, Not Quantity
When did dentistry get into such a rush? A lot of practices try to get patients in and out as quickly as possible these days, which leads to lower quality dentistry that stresses everyone out in the process. We like to take a more deliberate pace. Dr. Albert believes it’s important to truly get to know his patients so he can understand what is best for them and their health. What is appropriate for you probably wouldn’t be for another patient, and figuring this out involves asking the right questions, listening to the answers, and truly caring about a patient’s unique situation.
Kind, Caring Dental Team
When was the last time you went to the dentist and felt like the team was actually happy to see you? This is a familiar feeling for our patients, because we truly love what we do and think of them as extended family. If there is anything we can do to improve you or your child’s experience with us, just let us know, and you can consider it done! Unlike corporate practices, YOUR satisfaction is our main goal, and we’ll go above and beyond to make you proud to call us your dental home every time.
We Take Dental Insurance
Our practice is very insurance friendly. We’re in-network with several popular plans and are happy to accept policies from practically every provider. Beyond that, we’ll even file your claims for you to make sure you’re getting every dollar you deserve and avoid all that paperwork. With us, saving on your care will always be easy and straightforward, and you’ll never have to break the bank simply to take care of your teeth.

We can schedule a same-day appointment to get you or your child out of pain as fast as possible.
