Dr. Charlotte Etesse

Dr. Charlotte is a compassionate general and cosmetic dentist, and she’s quite the foodie! She is a proud double Bruin, earning her Bachelor of Science in Physiology at UCLA followed by her Doctor of Dental Surgery degree at the UCLA School of Dentistry, where she graduated Cum Laude. After dental school, Dr. Charlotte completed an Advanced Education in General Dentistry residency at the V.A. in Long Beach, where she advanced her skills in comprehensive dentistry, including smile designs, implant dentistry, and emergency dental treatments.


While her academic achievements are impressive, patients know Dr. Charlotte for being warm, caring, and putting patient relationships first. If you really want to get her talking, just ask her about her favorite local restaurants! With Dr. Charlotte, comfort is top priority, and patients are active participants in all dental care decisions. She is passionate about providing patients with the highest level of care and believes that optimal oral health and hygiene are essential to achieving and maintaining overall health.


When she isn’t practicing dentistry or winning radio contests, you can find her relaxing at the beach or working on her social media game (find her on Instagram @charlotte.etesse.dds). She loves food and comes from a family of chefs, but don’t ask her to cook! If you’re ready for an exceptional dental experience, Dr. Charlotte is for YOU!
