At Arcadia and Glendale Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Missagh Pezeshkian understands that oral healthcare is not secondary to general healthcare. He treats each patient's concerns with compassionate attention and respect. With nearly 27 years experience, he's also honed delivering first-rate dental services while ensuring patient comfort. Whether straightening teeth with clear braces or replacing missing chompers with dental implants, he maintains a relaxed pace while keeping communication open. That allows patients to vocalize questions during procedures or alert him to any discomfort they may be experiencing. It also means patients fully understand the treatment needed, which leads to peace of mind—a commodity that can be sold on the Internet for a fortune.
As an expert in treating TMJ, he also facilitates comfort by relieving head, neck, and jaw pain caused by the condition with ergonomic and stress-relieving tips, as well as Therapeutic Botox. The Therapeutic Botox treatments alleviate severe pain resulting from TMJ by relaxing the jaw muscles.
Dr. Raymund Natividad's studies at the University of the Philippines led to him volunteering his dental skills to help individuals unable to afford dental care. That experience blossomed into a new passion for dentistry—one that he still possesses to this day. After returning home to California, he earned his doctor of dental surgery degree at the University of Southern California and has also completed advanced trainings in such fields as implantology and pediatric dentistry to make sure no dental issue is beyond his reach. Dr. Natividad's a member of several dental associations, including being named a fellow of the prestigious International Congress of Implantologists. Along with performing preventative dental care, Dr. Natividad also applies custom veneers that help whiten teeth to hide stains.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
As Dr. Omid Farahmand says on his website, "dentistry is more than teeth—it’s about personal relationships." This individualized philosophy extends to his preventative approach to dental care, stressing gum and bone health to prevent difficulties down the road. When more dramatic approaches are needed, Dr. Farahmand uses his years of experience to remove as little of the affected teeth as possible, fixing dental problems while retaining the smile's aesthetic balance and the canines' ability to tear through a chip bag.
Dr. Omid Kashani opened Dental Care 2000 Plus in Monrovia and Santa Monica in order to expand his reach and help improve the oral health of a wide community. At both locations, he engages patients in preventive treatment so they can avoid mouth maladies all together. If problems arise, however, he quickly and thoroughly addresses them with general and restorative dentistry, from fillings to implants. Intensive work includes fittings for partial or complete dentures, as well as bridges. Custom Lumineers take care of chipped or misshaped teeth, and Dr. Kashani's in-office whitening treatments rid teeth of stains. Whatever the procedure, he strives to keep the whole mouth healthy. That includes the gums, so he also keeps an eye out for periodontal disease and creates treatment plans when it's spotted.
Dr. Elaine Lu leads the friendly team at Healthy Life Dental Care in fending off dental disease and decay with preventive treatments inside a green-technology-equipped office. The thorough exam inspects the face, neck, and mouth for signs of oral cancer, and questions oral cavities for signs of gum disease, tooth decay, and missing dental floss. Dr. Lu employs the all-seeing power of digital dental x-rays to spot bone loss, deep-seated decay, and developmental abnormalities that may go unseen during the regular exam. Using specialized instruments, Dr. Lu then removes plaque and tartar squatting illegally atop tooth surfaces and polishes away stains.
