"I found my dentist! I changed practices because the hygenist was rough and I left feeling sore. Dr. Efner and her whole team are incredibly gentle, slow, thorough, and above all- kind. I was really impressed by how Dr. Efner took her time to make sure I understand what she was seeing and was really committed to my comfort and ease. She is genuinely caring and committed to the best quality service and dentistry. I'm so glad I found her!"

"Dr. Efner and Mallory are the dream team! I have pretty high anxiety due to some past bad experiences with dentists. Dr. Efner and Mallory were able to work around that while keeping pain levels low during and post-op. I'm looking forward to doing proactive treatment now rather than only reactive, and I didn't think a dentist could flip that for me."

"I cannot say enough good things about my experience with Dr. Efner. Being new to the area and overdue for a checkup, we needed a new dentist in Ventura. Both of us have had some negative experiences with other dentists previously so we’re always wary to start with a new one. The name 'Serene' is very apt; the amount of care and compassion she and her staff have in making you feel comfortable is exemplary, and I can honestly say that I learned more about breathing, dental hygiene and dental anatomy during my visit than I have at all of my other dentists combined. I’m a geek about this stuff, but she wants you to understand more about your body, and she explains things clearly, non-judgmentally and truly with your best interests in mind. I never write reviews. This experience was truly worth it. Thanks, Dr Klara :)"

Dr.Efner is sooo gentle, caring, has great patience with all kinds of requests. She takes her time to talk to her patients and answer all the questions. Highly recommend this great dentist!
Thank you, Dr. Efner! ❤️"

Welcome —

I’m Dr. Klara Efner.

Thanks for stopping by. I hope that we can build a lasting relationship together!

I realize that Serene Dentistry may sound like an oxymoron, because we all know that dental visits are outright terrifying for many and uncomfortable for most. I recognize that, and I feel you.

This is why I have committed to a life-long journey of continuously excelling in my craft, both in my clinical skills and my ability to create a comforting environment for my patients.

From the moment you call our office or walk in, my hope is that you feel at ease and cared for.

My goal is to provide you, my community, with a dental home where you feel welcomed and are comfortable to return to, because you know you are receiving the level of care that you deserve. A place you will recommend to your family and friends with no hesitation, because you trust they too will receive unparalleled treatment resulting in healthy, well-functioning, beautiful smiles.

I aim to look after you with the utmost attention to detail, in a peaceful environment where your voice is heard and your needs and desires are met.

I feel great responsibility for my patients and perhaps this is why they often comment that I make them feel comfortable and they don't feel judged.

I have strong values which I will not bend and you can be rest assured that you will be treated with honesty, integrity and transparency, with care that is held to high standards and is centered around you.

If you are looking for a place like this to call your dental home, contact us.

If you are anxious or afraid, have been neglecting your dental health, avoiding the dental office because you’re scared of the dentist, had past traumatic experiences at the dental office send me a message to connect. Together we will work towards breaking the spell of past traumas and bad experiences..

I’d love to help you on the journey back to health!
