As a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and a proponent of preventive care, Babak Mostaan, DDS, and his skilled staff enhance both the aesthetics and health of smiles. Dr. Mostaan equips his office with the latest cosmetic techniques, including Invisalign and Zoom teeth whitening, to help him perform a slew of cosmetic and restorative services, ranging from routine cleanings to root canals. Within the comfortable, friendly confines of the office, patients can relax under the care of a dental crew that continually buoys their education through ongoing lectures, conferences, and conventions, as well as daily dramatic readings of toothpaste ingredients.
Dr. Nazanin Morshedi helms Palo Alto Dental Center with passion—she brings a love of her craft, which she considers an art, to each appointment, and strives to put a smile on her patients’ faces. Dr. Morshedi partners with a staff of dental professionals, each with at least 10 years of experience in the field. Though she specializes in neuromuscular dentistry, the doc offers a range of services, from general dentistry—such as root canals and bridges—to cosmetic fixes, including teeth whitening and invisalign. She uses the latest techniques culled from educational seminars, and provides pain-free dentistry with her gentle touch and make-believe tools—which she still thoroughly cleans after each appointment.
Doctors Goly Barar and Nicole Rashidi perform cosmetic and general dentistry at Elite Dental Group, a practice with more than four decades of experience in the field. The doctors scout for signs of oral cancer and gum disease during basic exams, and supplement preventative care with cosmetic enhancements. In-office Zoom! whitening effaces surface stains and graffiti tags, yielding results that last up to a year.
With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. Dentists will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Whenever possible, Ciana Salon and Day Spa's staff use natural products, from their Aveda hair-color products to body treatments infused with Dead Sea salts and seaweed. In the salon area, stylists consult with clients to determine the best cut and color to suit their predilections. They then coat manes with Aveda color products packed with sunflower, castor, and jojoba plant oils to protect hair while tinting it and making it indistinguishable from many gardens. The stylists also lengthen locks with Great Lengths extensions made from 100% human hair for a natural look. On the spa side of the business, aestheticians keep to the natural theme by enhancing facials with marine and plant extracts and energizing tourmaline minerals. They also offer treatments that fight the visibility of aging, such as custom-blended TCA skin peels and microdermabrasion with exfoliating microcrystals. The aestheticians further pamper clients by rendering body wraps packed with rosemary and peppermint, as well as hot- and cool-stone massages, which, hypothetically, would lose to paper massages.
After fulfilling his dream of becoming a Doctor of Medicine at Stanford University's School of Medicine in 2002, Duke T. Khuu, MD, F.A.A.D. dreamed again. This time, he would establish his own institution: a haven for patients to relish in his seemingly infinite dermatological knowledge. This dream, like all of Dr. Khuu's dreams, also came true. Today, Khuu Dermatology is a veritable haven for anyone suffering from dermal anomalies, including wrinkles, hyperpigmentation, and unsightly veins. The board-certified dermatologist—alongside his team of registered nurses—immaculately execute a full repertoire of medical and cosmetic skincare procedures, from microdermabrasion facials to cancer screenings. Dr. Khuu also takes care to keep patients fully informed on treatment options, so each patient can achieve their time-reversing skin goals. In his spare time, Dr. Khuu likes to go figure skating.
