Dr. Shirazi's innovative services and equipment have earned the practice a nomination in KRON 4's Best of the Bay awards in 2009.
Dr. Shirazi graduated from New York University College of Dentistry, completed an advanced postdoctoral training course at the College of Dental Medicine at Columbia University, and is certified in implantology.
In addition to sharing the same parents and dental practice, Drs. Son Pham and Thuy Pham share a devotion to beautifying and restoring teeth through the full range of family- and cosmetic-dentistry services. Dr. Son demonstrates this commitment by continually exceeding his yearly required hours of continuing education, staying abreast of such dental developments as non-mercury fillings, all-porcelain crowns, and whistling dentures. Dr. Thuy, meanwhile, volunteers each year at Remote Area Medical, an outreach program where she provides free dental care for the community.
The dentists' focus on advanced yet comfortable treatments carries into the decor of the practice. Guests are welcomed with cheery yellow walls and vibrant art and relax in treatment rooms sporting LCD flat-screen TVs, on which they can watch a movie of their choice while undergoing treatment.
The team at Dental Care Of Antioch not only restores teeth to their original gleam, but strives to make them better than ever with a slew of ultramodern procedures.

Their lengthy list of services includes oral surgery, dental implants, dentures, teeth whitening, and Invisalign straightening treatments.
At Avalon Dental, patients place their pearly whites in the capable hands of [Dr. Broschinsky and his professional staff, who put patient comfort at the forefront of their practice. The sleek and comfy waiting room is designed to make clients feel at ease, accented by elegantly curtained, floor-to-ceiling windows and plush, earth-toned couches just begging to be turned into forts. Once patients are situated in the dental chair, a fleet of procedures awaits to spruce up their chompers or help prevent issues such as gum disease, tooth decay, or excessive back talking. Beyond basic cleanings, Dr. Broschinsky addresses cosmetic concerns using everything from veneers to fillings made from a nonmercury composite resin that matches the tooth's shade, and can even straighten teeth sans metal by creating clear, custom-fit Invisalign aligners.
During her eight years in private practice, Great American Dental's Dr. Haritha Tirupathi has cared for patients aged 3–90. Her cosmetic dental services can fit teeth with grin-enhancing accouterments such as Invisalign braces, dentures, and crowns, or polish away stains with Zoom! teeth-whitening treatments. Staffers also deploy state-of-the-art technology from intraoral cameras to digital x-rays—which emit less radiation than their analog counterparts—to check for decay during oral exams.
Although Dr. Imran Rizvi graduated dental school in 1997, his dental education has continued every day of his career.
