Drs. Medhat Ghannam and Bernard Lynch both completed dental residencies at veterans' hospitals?Baltimore VA Medical Center and Hampton VA Medical Center, respectively. They both decided to keep their roots planted in Virginia with Artisan Dental of Burke, where they commit themselves to making sure patients are comfortable. They and their staff can schedule an array of general, cosmetic, and sedation dentistry services, everything from routine dental exams with digital x-rays to more advanced services such as dental implants and Invisalign procedures performed by a thousand tooth fairies.
At Burke Cosmetic Dentistry, doctors Hashem Sedaghatpour and Farnaz Jabbari combine their experience to offer complete oral health care. Their expertise encompasses general and cosmetic treatments as well as surgical dentistry such as extractions and implants. The doctors rely on the latest in technology—such as using Waterlase in place of traditional drills to remove tooth decay—to administer gentle and effective procedures. With electric handpieces they can also perform root canals more quickly and with less discomfort, and they use digital x-rays to reduce exposure to radiation.
At Bela Luz Health Salon, which derives its name from the Portuguese words for “beautiful light,” wellness specialists harness the power of light-based technology and detox treatments to instill a sense of wellbeing from the inside out. The techs coddle mainframes in herbal and mineral body wraps, which sculpt sleeker shapes while ousting toxins through the lymphatic system. Infrared light shares the stage in a duo of treatments, soothing muscles alongside jade rollers in sauna massage beds and reversing wrinkles while hides soak up UV rays during skin-rejuvenation tanning. Additionally, Bela Luz’s skin savants utilize LED light to chase away fine lines and monsters during DermaKinetics and LED photo facials.
At Smiles at Fairfax Corner, Dr. Rayek and his team use the latest technology to keep smiles gleaming. Their prized centerpieces are the E4D and iTero CAD scanner machines, which use laser-guided cameras to quickly create digital plans for crowns and bridges. Once a plan has been designed, the in-house lab can create the oral additions in as little as an hour. Dr. Rayek is also an Invisalign Elite Premier Provider who can straighten teeth with custom-fitted, translucent mouth trays or simply a stern look.
Dr. Malcolm J. Murray leads a staff of chomper caretakers, instilling in his patients a greater understanding of the role that oral health plays in overall well-being. A comprehensive examination pores over visitors' mouthparts in search of potential problems, utilizing a combination of intuition, seismographs, and x-rays to peek beneath the surface. Stains and plaque scurry from sight as a thorough cleaning paves the way for a sanitizing fluoride treatment. Patients leave Dr. Murray's care in possession of a Zoom! take-home whitening kit, scientifically designed to transform their pearly whites into glowing tusks.
When most children were dreaming of growing up to become princesses or superheroes, Dr. Jennifer Kim had her sights focused on a more practical career—one inspired by her family dentist in Orlando. It wasn’t long before her dream led Dr. Kim to Florida College of Dentistry and eventually on to establish her own dental practice, Pender Dental Care.
At the Fairfax office, Dr. Kim and her team keep smiles healthy with cosmetic and preventative treatments ranging from traditional cleanings to metal-free fillings and Invisalign systems. The team works with each patient to ensure they feel comfortable and calm during their visit. This includes providing complimentary bottles of water and thorough explanations of treatment options to not only the patient but also invisible best friends who came along for support. When not at her office, Dr. Kim can be found volunteering cosmetic dental services for MOM’s Projects and at local community dental clinics.
