About the Author

Dr. Von Bulow was born, raised, and still lives just outside of Los Angeles in the San Gabriel Valley; he's practiced restorative dentistry there, after founding Temple City Dental Care, for just over 40-years. And although 40-years of anything translates into a certain chronological result, Dr. V assures us his physiological number lands somewhere near the number itself.

Dr. Von Bulow received his Bachelor of Science degree from California State University, Los Angeles and his DDS degree from the University of Southern California and is intent on continuing to learn.

The Temple City Dental Care intention is "Making a world-class difference for others and making Dentistry fun." And Dr. V. is blessed with a team that can make patients feel safe and liked on "Hello." The TCDC commitment is helping patients become their own best healthcare advocates; and the commitment extends beyond the dental practice as doctors and team participate in multiple community projects, often initiated by team members.

Dr. Von Bulow is a member of the Academy of Laser Dentistry, the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, and the Crown Council; he's also a Board of Directors member of the American Academy of Clear Aligners where Dr. V also mentors other North America Invisalign orthodontics providers. Von Bulow and Team have earned awards for service, teamwork, and Invisalign care; doctors and Team commit to more than 100-hours of training per year.

In his spare time, Dr. V enjoys reading, going to the movies, and following USC Trojan Football; he exercises at a level the uninitiated might consider obsessive-compulsive. Von Bulow has written a weekly column for local rags for over 20-years; he's published three books, including "Can We Smile?", "Molar Jockey Memoirs" and now, "The Most Interesting Dentist in the World" (based on one of his columns and the fact he won a t-shirt in a video competition.)

Dr. V's written perspective is all his own, coming from the lighter, humorous side but also embracing an opinionated view of a decidedly big picture.

Dr. Von Bulow asks, "Why not practice effective business, healthcare, and dentistry within a culture of love, humor, and compassion? And maybe some Trojan Football domination.
