Farrah Koutchek, DDS
“My emphasis is on patient comfort and keeping up-to-date with the latest techniques in dentistry. My artistic background enables me to provide my patients with quality care for the whole family and give them a beautiful smile and pleasant experience.”
Dr. Koutchek has always had a passion for learning and was valedictorian during undergraduate school, graduating with a Doctorate of Dental Surgery in 1995. She started practicing in California in 2001. Throughout her career she has completed countless hours of continuing education and constantly seeks new opportunities to enhance her abilities, knowledge, and techniques.
Her approach to treatment starts with listening carefully to the patient, completing a thorough examination, and using new state-of-the-art digital x rays (that admit 90% less radiation), enabling her to diagnose and prescribe the best treatment plan for you and your family. Dr. Koutchek has a wide range of experience in different aspects of dentistry, from cosmetic and restorative dentistry to root canals and oral surgery as well as Invisalign.
Dr. Koutchek compares dentistry to artistry: “I’m sculpting teeth with my hands, creating something beautiful and lasting.” Fixing teeth changes lives, and there’s nothing Dr. Koutchek finds more fulfilling than restoring a patient’s confidence. “I’ve had patients scared to smile, or patients who automatically put their hand in front of their mouth when smiling because they didn’t want show their teeth.” Once you help someone’s smile, Dr. Koutchek believes, the change is dramatic.
Artistry is what fuels Dr. Koutchek, both in the office and outside of the office. She enjoys oil painting, sewing & music, and approaches her work as a dentist the same way she’d approach any art form: always staying calm and focused. Patients describe her as having a very serene presence. She is known to sometimes hum softly during dentistry work, and the sound has been compared to a “mother’s lullaby” by patients – instantly soothing even in the dentist’s chair.
Dr. Koutchek is a wife and mother of two, so she is good with children.

I had been having severe pain on the whole left side of my face due to an infected wisdom tooth. Went and saw one dentist and they basically gave me pain meds and sent me on my way. I found Dr. Spero number online for emergency situations and called him immediately. He scheduled me first thing next morning. I was literally in tears waking into his office and he completely made me feel like I was in a safe environment and assured me we were gonna solve my problem today. Within an hour, my tooth was out. NO PAIN!!!!! I could hardly find the words to thank him but I will definitely be returning and can say Dr. Spero is my official new full-time dentist. Thank you again to you and your team.
I called in during off hours in extreme pain, and Dr Spero was able to help me out! He and his staff are so professional and such a great help! I normally dread going to the dentist, but he made this visit so welcoming and inviting! I had to get two root canals and Dr Spero made the whole process a breeze! The office is clean and welcoming, I definitely found my dentist office for life!
I have been seen by both dentists there. They are both great and able to work with me. I have serious health issues and didn't want to to go just anywhere. April, who works there, is a sweetheart and pleasure work with. Highly recommend this place to family, friends, and cancer peeps.
