A Unique Expertise

Dr. La Mastra is a member of the American Dental Association, Academy of General Dentistry, Texas Dental Association, Dallas County Dental Association, the Academy of Clear Aligners, and the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry.

He believes in comprehensive dental care that helps patients maintain their oral health, smile, and addresses their chief concerns. He prides himself on delivering the best, most compassionate, and holistic dental care to each of his patients.

In order to do this, Dr. La Mastra has spent numerous hours in continuing education courses and recently directed his focus on orthodontics and occlusion (the study of a person’s bite) in order to help develop the proper function. This prevents costly dental work in the future by directing “biting” forces in the proper area of the tooth maintaining tooth and gum health.

Dr. La Mastra is certified in Invisalign and teaches on the national level, educating other doctors on how to best plan and execute treatment. He is one the youngest faculty member in the history of Invislaign, in which he is humbled and grateful for the recognition. He is also very passionate about building beautiful smiles that give patients back their confidence, youth, and smile of their dreams using his wide range of dental expertise.

Dr La Mastra has been very fortunate to partner in practice with Dr Kenneth Hamlett and continue to perfect his dental skills to the high standards of Dr Hamlett. Dr La Mastra practices with the same philosophies and techniques as Dr. Hamlett in order to continue offering the same amount of care and perfection to his patients and all our new patients for all their general and cosmetic dentistry needs.

Reviews

"THE DREAM TEAM !!  I was looking for the Tom Brady of cosmetic dentistry to perform bonding on my "smile teeth" with large open embrasures, and found him in Dr. Hamlett.  Though other dentists had told me it couldn’t be done and veneers were required, Dr. Hamlett and RDA Stephany, skillfully worked to rebuild my smile.  The results far exceeding expectations. ATMOSPHERE: The constellation of super bowl stars earned by the team begins when you enter the front door into Hamlett’s well crafted theatre.  The collectable art, décor and music throughout the office transcends "guests" into a feeling of being in a dream world where good things happen.   I was having difficult cosmetic work performed so pleased to see the Dr. had an eye for fine art and aesthetics. RECEPTION/BUSINESS: Parker knows how to greet her guests and showed a lot of grace and professionalism handling an apprehensive patient with poor prior experiences at the DDS office.   CLEANING BY DH:  Having my teeth cleaned by DH, Cindy, was like a cub being cradled by a mother bear.   While she is performing her craft, she’s distracting you with soothing words and genuine interest of her patient grasping how to better take care of their teeth between visits.   DR. HAMLETT:  I believe there are some people and places Our Maker spent more time creating.  Dr. Hamlett’s understated warm Southern manner is not representative of most Masters of craft, particularly Doctors.  He took a talent bestowed in him and I believe, was dead set on working every day towards being the worlds best Dentist with the greatest Team in the finest theatre.   He succeeded and for the first time, I’m actually looking forward to my return visit."

"Great experience for me - had all my old metal fillings replaced (cavities under every one of them) and some restorative work. Dental chickens take note that they are licensed for everything from local numbing to full-sedation dentistry. Good bunch"

"Top level professional dental hygienist provided expert teeth cleaning and polishing services with doctor participation in review of x-rays and status of my teeth. Impressive display of sanitary conditions throughout the office and treatment areas including the precautions taken by my hygienist to protect me and her from any possible virus transmission. Overall, a five star visit to my dentist. Left to go home with a big smile on my face."
