Dr. Zschaschel's Journey

Dr. Diana Zschaschel is thrilled to get to do what she loves every day. Dentistry combines her interest in medical science with her passion for helping people, especially special needs communities.

As an undergraduate at UCLA, Dr. Zschaschel discovered a passion for working with children through a series of volunteer positions. This led her down the path to becoming a behavioral specialist, and she continued working as a behavioral therapist while learning to care for people’s teeth at UCLA’s School of Dentistry. After receiving her degree, she had the privilege of a completing a year-long residency, focusing on patients with disabilities, cancers, and complex medical histories. This residency cemented her interest in working with special needs groups and complex cases, a community she’s now served for more than 20 years.

Since opening her private practice in downtown Beverly Hills, Dr. Zschaschel has been celebrated for her work both in and out of the office. In 2005, she was recognized by the Los Angeles Area Chamber of Commerce as Volunteer of the Year for her contributions to the community, and she’s been honored several times since then for her work. She’s on the medical board for the PACE/Head Start program in Los Angeles, and she’s worked on grassroots campaigns for the statewide Special Olympics. She’s also involved in a variety of additional organizations that strive to increase the quality of healthcare for people with disabilities.

Another big part of her life is that she is an Army Reservist. When she’s needed, she commands a medical battalion, managing 1,000 soldiers.

To this day, special needs patients are among her favorite patients to see. She also loves working with children and their families. Whatever a patient’s needs may be, Dr. Zschaschel enjoys helping them achieve beautiful, healthy smiles, so they can live life to the fullest.

The combination of years of experience, expertise, and a true desire to help improve the quality of life of her patients puts Dr. Zschaschel ahead of the pack. Patients celebrate her natural ability to help them stay calm and relaxed, and to put them at ease by connecting with them on a personal level. She takes pride in her ability to build lasting relationships with her patients based on trust, communication, and fun.

I believe in quality family dentistry where I build relationships with my patients.

Personal Interests

Outside of work, Dr. Zschaschel spends almost all of her time with the light of her life: her three-year-old son. When she gets a little time for herself, she loves dancing—especially salsa. Years ago, she even performed! To keep active in the off hours, she loves running marathons, doing triathlons, hiking, and swimming.

Dr. Zschaschel also served in the military, providing dental services for 15 years before opening her current practice. Today, she is a proud Army reservist—a role that’s changed her life in many ways, including the variety of travel and humanitarian missions she’s been privileged to participate in. Helping deployed soldiers get the dental care they need is still a cause that’s very close to her heart.
