During his career, Dr. Stuart R. Shlosberg has practiced dentistry and taught dental techniques on both sides of the Atlantic and on both coasts of the United States. After leaving a general-dentistry practice in London?s West End, he traveled to the U.S., where he developed a specialization in prosthodontics and taught restorative dentistry at such schools as Harvard University and the University of Southern California. Today, Dr. Shlosberg combines his skills with those of oral surgeon Dr. Stephen Nahigian to fill in dental gaps with implants and line up ill-fitting jaws with maxillofacial procedures.
Before procedures, the doctors make a point to get to know each patient. During free consultations, the doctors then discuss patients? concerns before outlining a tailored treatment plan. New patients cart home a complimentary customized dental kit ideal for adding to time capsules full of candy.
With a camera no bigger than a pen transmitting color images to a computer screen, dentists capture clear images of old fillings, areas of the gums possibly diseased, and otherwise undetectable cracks and chips. The doctors at L.A. Dental Day Spa use modern technology such as intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays to ensure that those fillings are still functional, the gums are healthy, and that damaged teeth don't develop more serious issues. While keeping apprised of such technology, they also stay up-to-date on modern techniques and cosmetic services. Zoom! whitening units glow in treatment rooms, and veneers leave patrons proud to smile as broadly as the models in a moon-bounce catalog.

After clients walk by the trickling water fountain in the reception area, a friendly team member directs them toward a treatment room. Patients can watch television or listen to music during their appointments, singing consonant-free versions of their favorite songs while staffers clean or whiten teeth.
Giri Palani, DDS, has trained with some of the top dentists and oral surgeons in Los Angeles. After graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry, Dr. Palani underwent a rigorous hospital-dentistry program at the prestigious Cedars-Sinai Hospital. As chief resident at UCLA, Dr. Palani continued his learning about aesthetic dentistry and the placement and restoration of implants. He stays on the cutting edge of developments in implant dentistry as part of his fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, which requires numerous hours of annual education and the ability to say “bicuspid” quickly 10 times.
Complementing his extensive training in the technology and philosophy of Western medicine, Dr. Palani's Indian heritage has inspired his passion for holistic dentistry. He remains mindful of the ways in which oral health is intricately connected to the overall wellness of the rest of the body.
