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.
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.
Dr. Bhavani Sriramaneni draws from the lessons of more than two decades of dentistry experience to shine smiles at her dental clinic, where she specializes in cosmetic, preventative, and restorative dentistry. Invisalign treatments straighten teeth with a sequence of invisible aligners, and one-hour Zoom! whitening treatments lift stains from smiles, while veneers stand by to add a new level of perfection to mouths. Preventative dental care complements the more aesthetic services, ranging from tooth-protecting sealants to screenings for common diseases.
Dr. Harish Gulati excels at communication. As an associate professor and lecturer, he shares his insight in general and restorative dentistry and, as a peer reviewer of many dental journals, offers feedback regarding dental healthcare. Similarly, he explains procedures to patients before repairing cavities with tooth-colored fillings or crafting custom dental bridges.
A winning smile requires more than sparkling teeth. As a dentist, Dr. Monique Mabry has dedicated nearly 20 years to protecting her patients' oral health, keeping an eye out for potential complications while she and her hygienists brighten smiles with in-office whitening treatments and straighten them out with the Invisalign system. Yet, Dr. Mabry and her team recognize that a smile's frame is just as important. This is why she and her aesthetic assistant perform lip-enhancement procedures and inject Botox and dermal fillers, reducing the appearance of creases, crow's feet, or wrinkles.
When she isn't beautifying smiles weathered by time or people mistaking rocks for rock candy, Dr. Mabry devotes herself to philanthropic efforts. In 2009, she assisted the Boston Medical Center Grow Clinic for Children in raising nearly $1 million, and gave her time to the Boston Medical Center Friends of Women’s Health
