Dr. Maryam Talaie draws upon her knowledge of aesthetics and the latest sedation techniques to beautify smiles while reducing dentist-related anxieties. Before procedures begin, the staff calms nerves with candles, soothing music, and complimentary coffee and juice. In treatment rooms, chairs equipped with Tempur-Pedic headrests cradle patients, and orchids and bamboo stalks sway near aromatherapy oils. Intraoral cameras make exams easier by allowing Dr. Talaie to peer painlessly into mouths to identify dental issues or to see if that’s where you hid the card she picked. Digital x-rays produce as little as 5% of the radiation of traditional x-rays, and instantly developed images appear on the monitor without the need for printing.
As they rise from black leather chairs, Dentex patients enter treatment rooms where state-of-the-art touchscreen and digital dental equipment rests between buttercup-yellow walls. There, one of seven docs, with the help of their trusty assistants and wisecracking toothbrushes, keep teeth and gums healthy, restore worn chompers, and make smiles shine brighter with cosmetic procedures. The team includes orthodontists, award-winning dentists, and board-certified periodontists, with specialists to meet nearly any need. Drivers can roll up onto the clinic's roof for free parking.
At West LA Dental Health Center, dentists P. Eli Mastour and Arash Sabbagh-Fard collaborate to foster a positive, comfortable environment, encouraging patients to smile as the staff cleans, brightens, and aligns their teeth. Both dentists attend educational seminars regularly, keeping up with the latest technologies and procedures, such as Zoom tooth whitening and Invisalign braces.
For the dental team at Le Chic Dentist, it’s the little things that matter. Helmed by Drs. Maryam Hadian and Pouria Sadri—both graduates of the respected USC School of Dentistry—the dental tem attends to patients with the full range of cosmetic, restorative, and general dental services as well as courtesies often overlooked. The team can accommodate hectic schedules by taking appointments on weekends and leaving their doors open until 7 p.m. on some weekdays. The staff also looks after clients' welfare by sending a driver to pick up and drop off VIP patients who are under oral sedation.
When Dr. George Lim first became a dentist 30 years ago, many of today’s dental techniques didn’t exist yet; fortunately, during that time, he’s expanded his skills to include such advanced procedures as installing dental implants, providing Invisalign clear braces, and whitening teeth with Zoom! whitening treatments. Although he relies on these talents to restructure smiles, he maintains that prevention is still the best tool of all, and he emphasizes proper dental care during exams and cleanings.
Inspired by the philosophy that a smile accounts for 85% of all first impressions, the representatives at Smile Labs foster more confident grins with safe, effective whitening techniques. Inside Smile Labs' aqua-blue and white salon spaces, patrons relax on padded chairs while professional-grade whitening gel glides over teeth with the Applia-Brush’s paint-on technique, ensuring a clean, even coat. The gel teams up with an Infinity Pro SL light, whose tuned wavelength works in tandem with the gel to coax out stains caused by coffee, tobacco, and crayon-filled bonbons. A single 15-minute treatment can result in immediately visible whitening, though two treatments are recommended for best results.
