For the team of dentists at Cornerstone Dentistry, cosmetic dentistry is about more than just good looks. So although he leaves mouths looking impeccable with implants, full-mouth reconstructions, and rhinestone-bedazzled canines, he never loses sight of the primary concern of any procedure?ensuring healthy relationships between the jaws, teeth, and facial muscles.
With an approach described in Palm Springs Life as "concierge health care," Cornerstone Denistry sees far fewer patients than the typical dentist or armchair psychiatrist, giving each patient greater attention. The dentists find they can maintain a higher standard of work with these longer appointment times while also building a friendly rapport with their patients. The dental group plans to open a third location in Glendale this June.
California Dental Group’s trained staffers specialize in areas ranging from cosmetic dentistry to orthodontia, and attend continuing-education sessions to ensure that their tooth-wrangling skills stay up-to-date. Preventive-care experts show patients how to practice good cleaning habits at home and avoid losing any teeth that could be cashed in with adult tooth fairies for a handful of state-lottery tickets.
The gum spelunkers at CyberDent, helmed by Dr. Gohar Hovsepyan, DDS and Dr. Kàren Baghdasaryan, DDS, polish and protect teeth in a comfortable office environment. During the exam, mouths are thoroughly inspected for signs of decay and general listlessness brought on by on-and-off-again relationships with clingy dental floss. Chompers also receive an updated self-portrait in the form of x-rays, followed by a professional cleaning to eradicate stains and build-up, transforming smiles from black holes to brilliant supernovas.

Q&A with the Doctor
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
Achieving a complete smile makeover by incorporating Invisalign (to move teeth), periodontal surgery (soft-tissue grafting), oral surgery (implant placement and bone augmentation), and cosmetic restorations (crowns, bridges, and veneers made with biomimetic materials, such as porcelain and white fillings, instead of cast metal and silver/mercury amalgam dental restorative materials). Plus, our patients love the gentleness of our doctors.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
Seeing the happy faces of our patients after our work is done.
The interior of a business can affect how its customers feel. What kind of decor do you use to help make your clients feel pampered and at ease?
[We have a] modern and clean office that doesn't smell like a pharmacy. Plus, lots of sunshine from huge windows lowers the anxiety level of our patients. And if that is not enough, we offer a 15-minute massage-chair session to take the edge off.
Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover?
We treat our patients, and not just their teeth.
At Arcadia Advanced Dentistry, Dr. Missagh Pezeshkian understands that oral healthcare is not secondary to general healthcare. He treats each patient's concerns with compassionate attention and respect. With nearly 27 years experience, he's also honed delivering first-rate dental services while ensuring patient comfort. Whether straightening teeth with clear braces or replacing missing chompers with dental implants, he maintains a relaxed pace while keeping communication open. That allows patients to vocalize questions during procedures or alert him to any discomfort they may be experiencing. It also means patients fully understand the treatment needed, which leads to peace of mind?a commodity that can be sold on the Internet for a fortune.
As an expert in treating TMJ, he also facilitates comfort by relieving head, neck, and jaw pain caused by the condition with ergonomic and stress-relieving tips, as well as Therapeutic Botox. The Therapeutic Botox treatments alleviate severe pain resulting from TMJ by relaxing the jaw muscles.
