Joseph Geleris, DDS, takes his title seriously. Drawing upon more than 25 years of tooth-mending experience, he and his team at Glendora Family and Cosmetic Dentist save choppers from a fate worse than cavities with traditional dental procedures ranging from cleanings and exams to root canals and fillings. Dr. Geleris also executes cosmetic and restorative services, renovating smiles ravaged by age, environment, or falling property values. Bridges and veneers fill in unwanted gaps, bonding create seamless chip repairs, and teeth whitening treatments restore pearly brilliance. Believing in more than just preventative care, he practices preventative education as well, working to ensure clients can understand and maintain their oral health.
The folks at Children's Choice Pediatric Dental Care do their darnedest to make sure kids actually look forward to going to the dentist. In a waiting area adorned with brightly colored murals, kids can play video games, watch movies, or entertain younger siblings by staging a healthcare debate in the toddler play area. Each treatment chair is equipped with a video screen to keep youngsters entertained and relaxed during meticulous cleanings and exams. Dr. Jeffrey Saladin and his team of caring professionals place an emphasis on gaining patients’ trust and teaching them the importance of prevention and proper home care, ensuring the health of their teeth and gums for years to come.
To an uninformed eye, the orthodontic patients at Covina Smile seem to have teeth that straighten out all on their own. But Dr. Sima Khavaran doesn’t use magic to align teeth. Instead, she fits her patients with clear plastic trays that move teeth about 0.25 millimeters—the average length of a caterpillar’s eyelashes—every two weeks. Though she’s gifted in straightening snaggles, orthodontics is not the dentist’s sole focus. Dr. Khavaran also provides preventative dental care such as cleanings, x-rays, and exams, as well as other cosmetic procedures, including teeth whitening.
Smiles West's dentists and oral specialists tackle all levels of dentistry from general exams to orthodontics, oral surgery, and cosmetic whitening. Each of the seven locations uses state-of-the-art equipment—including intraoral cameras and digital x-rays—to provide the most thorough examinations possible. During more intensive procedures, they enhance comfort by administering sedatives or sprinkling teeth with fairy dust.
Although the technicians at Advantage Bright specialize solely in teeth whitening, they have a hand in many different aspects of life. They believe that a bright smile can impact an event as important as a job interview, a wedding photo-shoot, or any first impression. Therefore, the staff's laser treatments aim to reduce stains on tooth surfaces for a notably whiter grin. The laser light activates a hydrogen peroxide gel, whose bleaching properties combat discoloration caused by tobacco, coffee, wine, and poorly applied mud masks. The procedure takes 60 minutes or less, and leaves teeth whiter for up to two years, though patients are welcome to return for touch-ups.
Dr. Nazli Asrar learned a long time ago that a nice smile goes a long way. At Pearl Dental Group, it’s her own smile and upbeat attitude that makes dental visits stress-free and easygoing. Dr. Lloyd Trieu subscribes to the same philosophy, and together they accomplish services such as root canals, implants, and general checkups with compassion and a gentle touch.
