At Arcadia and Glendale 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.

Glenoaks Laser Center?s skilled technicians zap away signs of aging with four advanced laser systems and use Obagi skincare products to keep exteriors healthy. The heated beams of the Candela GentleLase system remove unwanted hair from any skin type, and the built-in cooling system keeps skin comfortable. The crystals floating through the SmartPeel microdermabrasion machine gently exfoliate the face as two built-in antiviral filters keep out bacteria and bellybutton lint trying to relocate to the chin. Glenoaks Laser Center prides itself on using advanced technology and creating a spa-like atmosphere through chic furnishings and elegant decor.

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.
When Dr. George Lim first became a dentist 30 years ago, many of today’s dental techniques didn’t exist yet; fortunately, during that time, he’s expanded his skills to include such advanced procedures as installing dental implants, providing Invisalign clear braces, and whitening teeth with Zoom! whitening treatments. Although he relies on these talents to restructure smiles, he maintains that prevention is still the best tool of all, and he emphasizes proper dental care during exams and cleanings.
