Our Story

"I feel like one of the luckiest people in the world to be in the profession I am in.  Family is the most important thing in my life, and I feel so lucky that I get this opportunity to work with both my family and other families every day! Being able to give both kids and adults smiles that they can show off to the world is both fun and rewarding." - Dr. Krisena Borenstein

Our family-oriented team aims to get to know our patients and their families on an individual level. We hope to gain the trust of all our patients in order to give the best possible care to all.

Dr. Krisena Borenstein attended dental school at the Harvard School of Dental Medicine. Then she completed a three-year residency in orthodontics at UCLA, where she earned a master’s degree in oral biology, as well as her certificate to practice as an orthodontic specialist for children and adults. She has also been given the opportunity to work as a faculty member at the UCLA School of Dentistry in the Orthodontic Department. She finds it very rewarding and fun to work directly with the current orthodontic residents in the clinic.

In 1989, Dr. Fell achieved board certification as a Diplomate of the American Board of Orthodontics (ABO). Board certification is the culmination of a five- to ten-year process of written and oral examination and an independent review of treated patients. This distinction is held by approximately 25% of practicing orthodontists.

While maintaining a full-time private practice, Dr. Fell also holds an academic appointment at the UCLA School of Dentistry, Orthodontics Department. In addition to teaching in the clinic part-time, she helped to develop and now teaches the course for the UCLA orthodontics residents to prepare them for ABO certification.


I had major anxiety when making my first EVER orthodontic appt. Not only did the staff here make this a very comfortable experience, they answered all 100 questions that I had about getting Invisalign. I cant say thank you enough to Dr. Borenstein and especially Joseph for the great customer service. I am now looking forward to my next appointment!

Dr. Fell and Dr. Borenstein were incredible from start to finish. I completed the entire Invisalign process with them and they were able to correct some major misalignments within my jaw and teeth. The entire process was painless and they made all of my appointments fun and easy. After having bad experiences in the past, they were definitely a shining example of good orthodontists. I recently saw them two years after having completed my treatment, and they made a repair on my permanent retainer for free. They not only take care of you during treatment, they take care of you long afterwards. I couldn't recommend them more!

The team at Culver City are bar none the greatest ortho team that have ever cared for me. You really get the sense that each treatment is highly personalized and that they are evaluating your case to maximize your specific outcome. During a recent visit, based on my progress, they moved around the sequencing of certain of my treatments in order to help me achieve better results faster. This decision was arrived at after careful and thoughtful consideration by both Dr. Fell and Dr. Borenstein. In addition to being great at what they do, they vibe in the office is great and visits to Culver City are something I always look forward to.

After 18 months I am still amazed... consistently excellent service, all staff is friendly, wait time for scheduled appointments is minimal... and more importantly results are amazing. Needing braces at 58 years old Invisalign was a great solution. Dr. Fell is an expert in orthodontics and I highly and without reservation recommend her... as did my already amazing dentist.

I've just finished Invisalign treatment with Culver City Orthodontics, and I am SO pleased with the results!  From my initial consultation to the day I finished treatment, I've been very happy with the care I've received. Doctors Fell and Borenstein are both very knowledgeable and personable. Every member of the staff I've come in contact with has been wonderful!  There is a tooth brushing station in case you didn't have time to brush before arriving at the office. I plan on bringing my daughter here for braces too. Zero complaints, 5 stars.

After years of wanting & needing braces I was referred to Culver City Ortho by my primary dentist who highly recommended Dr Fell & Dr Borenstein. Getting braces as an adult isn't the easiest but from day one everyone on their staff went out of their way to make the experience as easy and painless as possible. The Dr's, front desk staff and all the techs are always a joy and feel like friends who really care. Now I'm all done, my teeth look amazing and I couldn't be happier! I truly can't say enough about my experience w/ CC Ortho and have already recommended them to several friends... and now to you!
