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.
At Covina Smile, Dr. Sima Khavaran teams up with her staff to provide a host of [services[(http://www.covinasmile.com/services) that keep teeth bright and mouths healthy, striving to enhance patients' overall quality of life. Cleanings, exams, teeth whitening, x-rays, implants, and more benefit from advanced technology such as intraoral cameras. Dr. Khavaran also offers orthodontic services, fitting her patients with clear plastic trays that move teeth about 0.25 millimeters?the average length of a caterpillar?s eyelashes?every two weeks.
An LA native, Dr. Jack Von Bulow and his skilled support team attend to teeth in a serene spa-like environment replete with fountains and atria. Customers may choose a 90-minute chomper checkup, which kicks off with a thorough plaque scouring under the deft hands of an oral hygienist and the luminous gaze of a staff lamp. Once the tooth technician can see his or her reflection in cleaned teeth, an examination will highlight any oral afflictions, which x-rays may help to enumerate and clarify. During the procedure, customers may avail themselves of a paraffin-wax hand treatment and mentally escape from the dental proceedings with a virtual-reality-style film experience.
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.
