As a 5-year-old in the Soviet Union, Daniel Kazachkov underwent a four-hour root canal with no anesthetic. Though the procedure could have ignited a lifelong phobia of dentistry, Dr. Dan instead vowed to become a dentist and prevent others from going through similar pain. After graduating from Tufts University's School of Dental Medicine, he founded his own practice, Dental Arts of Westwood, where he keeps that memory fresh in his mind while carefully monitoring patient comfort.
In their sunny, yellow-walled practice, Dr. Dan and his team tend to the cosmetic and medical needs of teeth with a range of services. X-rays and a CT scans help them to nip disease in the bud, and lasers make surgical procedures quicker, safer, and more likely to finally impress the neighbors. In addition, Venus bleaching treatments whiten teeth. Youngsters can wait in a kids' area with toys, and televisions equipped with Netflix streaming distract patrons from procedures.
Specializing solely in whitening smiles, the technicians of Express Teeth Whitening Center help fade blemishes on teeth, allowing patrons to smile with confidence, whether it's for that job interview or presentation, or to just feel more at ease, all without the hassle of a dental-office visit. For teeth-whitening treatments, a technician will assess the type of treatment that will work best for the client by using a mouth tray with either 36% or 44% carbamide peroxide gel or a cheek retractor with 16% hydrogen peroxide whitening gel. After that, the technician will provide the client with protective glasses and activate the stain-zapping power with a blue light. The combination whitens teeth two to seven shades and produces immediate results, unlike going back in time to un-drink a year's worth of cups of coffee.
FDA-registered Million Dollar Smile restores whiteness to shop-worn smiles during tandem treatments with a dental-grade hydrogen-peroxide formula formula and select wavelengths of LED lights. Using specially designed mouth trays, treatments neutralize discoloration on both the upper and lower teeth. The 16% concentration of hydrogen-peroxide based whitening solution works its whitening magic free of gluten, fluoride, or alcohol, and the shortened exposure to LED lights lightens teeth without softening enamel or disrupting molars? circadian rhythms.

Dr. Zineb Mediouni believes that every patient should have a personalized appointment and treatment; her lengthy list of specialties makes it easy for this vision to become a reality. At ZM Dental, she does everything from routine dental care to cosmetic procedures, including whitening and clear Invisalign orthodontics. With an additional degree in prosthodontistry, or restorative dentistry, Dr. Mediouni specializes in replacing missing or damaged teeth with natural-looking implants, veneers, and dentures customized for each individual's smile. She performs these services with the help of ultramodern equipment such as digital x-rays, intraoral cameras, and conscious sedation for patients who feel anxious about visiting the dentist because the overhead light reminds them too much of their alien encounter.
At a child's first appointment, the staff at The Smile Institute will examine teeth and gums, perform a professional cleaning, take radiographs if necessary, and teach the child how to remove plaque from their teeth and gums. The team also guides the parents through the first appointment, teaching them how to keep their little one's teeth clean, beyond having them swish with glitter. By teaching children and parents proper dental care, the staff equips families with information that will help a child's teeth and gums stay healthy into adulthood. The Smile Institute also works on grown-up teeth too, offering various orthodontic services.
