Since graduating from UC San Francisco's School of Dentistry, Dr. Nahid Saba has spent 15 years keeping mouths and teeth around the Bay Area healthy. She and her team of dental hygienists stay in step with the advancing science of dentistry through continuing education, and they perform preventive, cosmetic, and restorative treatments for children and adults. Whether they're replacing missing teeth with implants, straightening smiles with Invisalign’s clear plastic aligners, or installing new tongues that will use fewer curse words, the team puts patient comfort first and listen closely to clients' concerns.
Using Lumibrite Chairside Whitening and a Sapphire light, the trained staff at Tucker Dental Group creates stupefying smiles out of ill-shaded mouth stones. A technician coats teeth with hydrogen-peroxide-based whitening gel, which is fluoride-enriched to perk up flagging enamel even as the gel coaxes stains off of teeth and back to their home planet. Gentle Sapphire light activates the gel, whitening teeth up to 12 shades in an hour of treatment. Unlike buffing away stains with a belt sander, the procedure generally results in minimal discomfort afterward.
Dr. Titus Tang and his skilled staff improve smiles with personalized general and cosmetic dentistry in a comfortable office setting. During the dental exam, a tooth technician scrutinizes enamel and gums, scoping for signs of infection or decay, while x-rays unveil dental distress or molars secretly harboring Skittles. During a second visit, clients can relax with music or television during the thorough cleaning, which helps purge harmful plaque and bacteria.
Board-certified dentist Dr. Diane Pooler has been practicing dental care in Daly City for more than 25 years. During that time, her name has become known outside the office as much as it's known inside. Though general dentistry services are her livelihood, Dr. Pooler has made a steady effort to support the community by teaching at local schools and volunteering at the Samaritan House's free clinic.
Dr. Moutaz Kotrob has two seemingly disparate passions—filmmaking and dentistry—and at Pure Smile Dental Group he makes the latter his art form. He works to maintain teeth with dental-care services, such as cleanings and implants, and improves their appearance with whitening and veneers, permanent sheaths used to hide decaying, crooked, or stained chompers.
Jill Dailey McIntosh has always been intrigued by the human body and how it moves—so much so that she graduated in 1991 with a kinesiology degree and soon thereafter decided to open her own Pilates teaching studio. But it wasn't until years later that this curiosity would manifest itself in a single question: "How can one aggressively transform the shape of their body while still maintaining proper alignment of the spine?" Eventually Jill began to examine her diverse fitness background, pulling low-impact movements from ballet, Pilates, and even orthopedic-exercise routines to create the basis for her fitness style, The Dailey Method.
Now, more than a decade later, Dailey's fitness routine has ballooned into studios sprawled across more than 10 states and gained praise from Self, Allure, FitPregnancy, and InStyle magazines. Regardless of the location, instructors remain true to Jill's mission of offering a diverse series of exercises that focus on toning and lengthening the body while lengthening the spine and building strong core muscles.
