A beautiful smile starts with more than straight, white teeth. A beautiful smile begins with a healthy mouth. That’s the mantra Dr. Paul Koch of Koch Aesthetic Dentistry stands by each day when he meets with patients — patients who often become friends.
Located off Highland Avenue near downtown Birmingham, Koch Aesthetic Dentistry helps people achieve the smile they’ve always wanted. Since opening, Dr. Koch and his experienced team have helped patients of all backgrounds attain healthy, beautiful smiles. By blending the science of dentistry with the art of aesthetics, Koch Aesthetic Dentistry offers an experience like none other in town.
“What I’ve come to realize and really love about Birmingham is the fact that most people here want beautiful, natural looking smiles,” says Dr. Koch, who previously worked in Atlanta before moving to the Magic City with his wife and children. “People want to look healthy. They want to look natural. They basically want their dental work to be unperceivable — and I love that.”
Before outlining a custom plan, each patient meets in-person with Dr. Koch to go over what they’d like to change about their smile. From there, patients become privy to some of the most innovative and stress-free dental practices available. A visit to Koch Aesthetic Dentistry is often compared to a trip to the spa. In fact, Dr. Koch is so committed to creating a relaxing environment for his patients that he often incorporates complementary hand treatments, refreshments and other luxuries that help patients fully relax. “I want them to feel like they’re in a penthouse suite, overlooking the city,” Dr. Koch says, referencing the practice’s patient rooms that overlook the city skyline. “I think it’s important to create a comfortable, non-threatening environment.”
Even with all the added luxuries that come with a visit to Koch Aesthetic Dentistry, ultimately, Dr. Koch’s primary goal is to provide each patient with an improved sense of confidence, which in turn, allows them to live a better life. “It doesn’t take much to make 20 white teeth,” Dr. Koch adds. “That’s fairly easy. But to make 20 beautiful teeth that’ll make people want to share their smile more — that’s what we try to do here every day.”
The proof that Dr. Koch and his team know what they’re doing can be found in stunning before-and-after photos and countless client testimonies. From business owners to stay-at-home parents to high school students, Koch Aesthetic Dentistry has brightened the smiles of a wide range of patients, and for Dr. Koch, each patient represents a story. The tell-tale sign that a person achieved the smile they hoped for, he says, is always revealed though the eyes. “They brighten up,” he says while pointing to a photo of a former patient who, before seeing Dr. Koch, rarely showed his grin. “You can really tell they have more confidence. It’s a wonderful thing to watch.”
Looking back on his journey to practicing cosmetic dentistry in Birmingham, Dr. Koch muses that his destiny has always been in dentistry. Even from a young age, he knew he wanted to do something that blended artistry and health – and practicing cosmetic dentistry taps directly into that aspiration.
“Rather than just thinking about How can I fix teeth?, I think about How can I help somebody enjoy more of life and have a better quality of life?” says Dr. Koch, adding that so much of our overall health can be attributed to our dental health. “That’s really what gets me going every day. That’s why I believe so much in what we do here.”
