The Hollywood Dentist Who Gives Celebrities Their Million-Dollar Smiles: Dr. Kevin Sands



Have you ever wondered how the biggest stars all seem to have perfect teeth? The secret is usually great genetics—mixed with a little help with Dr. Kevin Sands.

With a string of famous clients that could rival any Oscar party guest list, Dr. Kevin Sands has become known across the world for his skill in shaping smiles. From creating perfect porcelain veneers to full mouth restorations, he has spent the last 15 years building a reputation for achieving amazing results for his patients.

Although you can see his work on the faces of celebs like Kim Kardashian, Elle MacPherson, Shaun White, and Justin Bieber, Dr. Kevin B. Sands provides every patient with the same high level of service. His approach from client to client is the same: help them meet their goals in the best way possible.

His patient-centric approach stems from a deep belief that every smile is unique, and each person deserves a personalized solution, he said. Whether he’s fitting a crown, whitening teeth, or making a customized plan to elevate your smile to movie star status.

Powerful Credentials

A core component of Dr. Sands’ success comes from his high level of training. He earned his doctorate at the prestigious University of Southern California School of Dentistry and completed his advanced training in aesthetic dentistry at the Las Vegas Institute for Advanced Dental Studies.

Today, continues to study the latest technology and procedures to ensure that his patients have access to the latest options medical science has devised.

He currently serves as a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, the American Dental Association, and the California State Dental Association.

His work has been recognized by both professional and popular organizations, and Dr. Kevin Sands has appeared on TV shows like “10 Years Younger,” and “Tori & Dean Storibook Weddings” as well as in magazines such as Vogue, Vanity Fair, and Details, among others.

Celebrity Clientele

Dr. Kevin Sands has become a sought-out option for famous people seeking to get the most out of their smiles. His emphasis on keeping things looking natural has brought in clients from the worlds of sports, music, TV, and movies.

Although he’s treated Robert Downey Jr., Kendall Jenner, and Miley Cyrus, his most well-known treatment may have been with NBA legend Lamar Odom.

Odom’s fear of dentists and ultimate successful treatment by Dr. Kevin Sands were chronicled on an episode of “Keeping up with Kardashians” that involved Khloé Kardashian convincing her NBA superstar husband that her dentist could him overcome his fears and get much-needed dental work done without pain.

After meeting with Odom, Dr. Kevin Sands suggests that he undergo light sedation, which would keep him from feeling any pain. Dr. Sands’ personalized fix and comforting bedside manner easily won over Lamar Odom, who enjoyed his first dental visit in more than seven years. 

Services Offered

Dr. Kevin Sands specializes in cosmetic dentistry—the art and science of making smiles look beautiful while staying healthy—but he offers a broad range of services that go far beyond the realm of aesthetics.

From his office in Beverly Hills, he can create tailor-made porcelain veneers, build full titanium dental implants, or perform complete smile makeovers that can include everything from crowns to whitening services and everything in between to make your smile ready for the silver screen.

He works with cutting-edge technology that allows him to see a perfect three-dimensional model of your mouth, perform advanced procedures with minimal pain, and correct your smile in the most efficient, long-lasting ways possible.

Whether you’re in the market for custom fitting Invisalign braces, restorative services to fix broken or chipped teeth, whitening and stain removal, or stunningly white porcelain veneers that will transform your smile, Dr. Kevin Sands can accommodate your needs.

What People Say

Dr. Sands works hard to deliver the same level of service to every patient. And, if their reviews are any indication, they leave feeling happier and more confident than ever.

“Without a doubt, the best dentist I’ve ever had,” raved one reviewer. “The amenities are state-of-the-art, and Kevin’s entire staff was super nice. My previous dentist took a month to fix one broken veneer, but Kevin managed to complete 20 teeth in one day. His attention to detail is unrivaled, and he is an expert at creating smiles.”

Another patient was impressed with the combination of technical and people skills that Dr. Sands embodied. 

“Dr. Sands is incredibly knowledgeable and assured in his abilities. But more significantly, he is dependable,” they wrote. “He loves his work and genuinely cares about his patients. You will be led in the right direction by Dr. Sands, who will explain to you what cosmetic operations are necessary. He is a perfectionist, and I adore his work. I wholeheartedly advise everyone, including my friends and family, to see Dr. Sands.”

And yet another emphasized the comfort and care they felt from everyone in the office during their visit.

“From the moment I stepped foot into the office until the moment I left, the experience was beyond what was expected,” they said. “From the plush waiting room, friendly staff and doctors, everything was beyond my expectations. I went in for a teeth whitening, which was easy, painless and quick. I’ll be back for a consult on Invisalign next! Thank you once again to Dr. Sands and his staff!”

Tribeca Festival Premieres ‘Elizabeth Taylor: The Lost Tapes’



Tribeca Festival hosted the North American premiere “Elizabeth Taylor: The Lost Tapes” on June 11 in New York City.

The film which makes the audience understand Taylor’s moxie in a whole new way is captivating and a thrill to watch. It is hard to turn your eyes away from the screen that shines a spotlight on one of the most famous legends in Hollywood history. The tapes tell her version of an icons larger than life script.

As the iconic actress says in a recording as highlighted in the HBO Documentary film, “To thine own self be true. That’s all I have to do.”

In attendance at the screening at the SVA theater were Aude Temel (Co-Producer), Barbara Berkowitz (EP & Elizabeth Taylor Estate), Bill Gerber (Producer), John Paul Horstman (Co-Producer), Nancy Abraham (Executive Vice President, Documentary and Family Programming, HBO),Nanette Burstein (Director/Writer), Glen Zipper (Producer), Quinn Tivey (EP, Elizabeth Taylor Estate and Elizabeth Taylor’s grandson), Rachel Rusch Rich (Producer), Sean Stuart (Producer), Tal Ben David (Editor/Writer), and Tim Mendelson (EP & Elizabeth Taylor Estate).

Oscar-nominated director Burstein’s documentary showcases a mesmerizing journey via audio tapes discovered in the archive of journalist Richard Meryman. Through her lens we are guided by Taylor’s voice as she walks the audience from the first step of her career through her time with Burton in the 1970s.  As described, “she reveals intimacies about her relationships, romantic and otherwise, she peels back the layers of a beloved public figure to reveal a vulnerable, funny, and tenacious woman who persevered despite a life led almost entirely under the scrutiny of public opinion.”

Speaking on the red carpet about Taylor’s accomplishments on the screen to her celebrated advocacy work Burstein mused over the icon and said, “She realized that she could change the game and she did.”

Public Theater Brings “The Ally” Forward for an Intense Debate




So here’s the pickle. This play, The Ally, clocking in at a far too long two hours and forty minutes, throws controversy at you in numerous long-winded speeches one after the other, filling your brain with details and complexities that clash and do battle with each other from beginning to end. The structuring is intelligent, as the Public Theater‘s new play, The Ally, written by Itamar Moses (Outrage; The Band’s Visit) and directed with precision by Lila Neugebauer (Second Stage’s Appropriate), strides forward into dangerous territory with determination against all odds. Wickedly smart and articulate, the play, in general, overwhelms the intellectual senses. It’s factual and intricate, somewhat off-balanced and attacking, delivering detailed positions with fiery accuracy, which only made me question whether I wanted to sit this one out. Or step more in.

It’s unsafe and determined, placing the action (or inaction, if you really want to get into it) inside a college campus, and attempting to engage in deep-level conversations and arguments with the complicated issues of the world. These are exactly the debates worth having, says basically one character to another, in the tradition of arguing. Because banning free speech is “weird on a college campus.” These conundrums and conflicts are core to passionate dialogue, and just the idea of having them is meeting with fierce debate at universities and colleges across the country. The complexities and the tipping points are layered and real, swimming in a sea of questions about what free speech really truly means, and how differing points of view, civil dialogue, and the stark polarization contrasts collide and enflame. And how, in discussion, defensiveness and aggressive emotional stances are taken on and used against one another like weapons; bullets, and missiles. I even feel a bit worried that taking this stance of wanting to back away might be taken as ‘part of the problem’.

The program notes that “the theatre is a safe space in the most literal sense of that term: no one is going to be physically harmed during this performance in the Anspacher. But it is most decidedly not a safe space if by that term we mean a space where everyone will feel comfortable and no one will feel angry, saddened, or offended. It can’t be that kind of space. The theater depends on conflict – the form itself refuses the idea of a single truth. It’s why I [Oskar Eustis; Artistic Director of The Public Theater] believe that theater is the ultimate democratic art form – just like citizens in democracy, the theater demands that we listen to and share opposing viewpoints, and that from that conflict, a greater truth will emerge.” And I couldn’t agree more with that.

Yet, even with such heightened emotions on stage, delivered full throttle by the excellent cast that includes Cherise Boothe (Signature’s Fabulation,) as Nakia; Elijah Jones (Signature’s Confederates) as Baron; Michael Khalid Karadsheh (Target Margin’s The Most Oppressed by All) as Farid; Joy Osmanski (“Stargirl“) as Gwen; Josh Radnor (LCT’s The Babylon Line) as Asaf; Ben Rosenfield (RTC’s Love, Love, Love) as Reuven; and Madeline Weinstein (BAM’s Medea) as Rachel, who each try to make it sound more authentic than the writing really allows, the play suffers from how deep of a dive the writing goes. But not without a solid attempt by this cast, bringing qualities and characteristics to the forefront whenever they are given the chance. But a lot of the time, like their main focus, Radnor’s Asaf, they must stand and listen to whoever has the microphone at that one particular speechified moment. And wait, just like us, for the next round. And viewpoint.

Playwright Itamar has certainly dived fully into some of the most difficult topics of our time and asks us to patiently listen to all sides, even when the dialogue doesn’t really resemble discussion but more like informed lectures or one-framed speeches. On the plainest of sets, designed by Lael Jellinek (Public/Broadway’s Sea Wall/A Life), with costuming by Sarita Fellows (Broadway’s Death of a Salesman), lighting by Reza Behjat (ATC’s English) and sound design by Bray Poor (Broadway’s Take Me Out), The Public‘s The Ally, uncovers some emotional space within the manifestos presented. Itamar states in the note section: It “wasn’t that i had nothing to say,” he carefully explains, like the main character who has to stand back and take on the full force and brunt of the argument. “Rather, I didn’t know where to begin because what I had to say was too confused, too contradictory, too raw.” And if that was the complicated stance he was trying to unpack, the playwright succeeded tremendously well.

But does that make The Ally, at The Public Theater, especially this long-winded one, worth sitting through? I’d say yes, and I’d say no. I couldn’t wait to leave that debate hall, but I was also impressed and intrigued by the arguments presented and discussed, even if ‘debate’ would not exactly be the word I would use for the ideas thrown around at one another with brutal force. One of the later statements said to Radnor’s Asaf by his ex-girlfriend, Nakia (Boothe) at maybe one of the few truly emotional moments of actual human souls speaking their truth, sums up my stance. “The thing you need, may not be words.” I won’t argue with that.
