A Hamilton High graduate and LA native, Dr. Strom has been a mainstay both in the community and in the dental profession for more than 35 years.
His primary focus is in developing long-time trusting dentist-patient relationships. He likes to educate, provide options, encourage patients to share any concerns and together, and only then, make the most appropriate decision for their care. He hopes to give his patients the most honest, proactive treatment possible, including a complete view of their oral health and how their mouth is a mirror for the rest of their body.
Dr. Strom’s office maintains a fully private-practice atmosphere with five-star service, including filing insurance paperwork. More importantly, his patients can reach him for after-hours appointments and some Saturdays.
Dr. Strom is a national key opinion leader. He enjoys teaching leadership to young healthcare professionals, public policy action, providing charitable care to WWII and disabled veterans, long-distance running, movies, writing and attending USC football games.
