When you picture the judges of an international beauty pageant, you likely think of media moguls, celebrities, star athletes, or former beauty queens. The idea of a cosmetic dentist would never cross your mind, and yet that is exactly what international beauty-pageant judge Dr. Aalam Samsavar is.
As the official cosmetic dentist of the Mrs. Washington pageant, a member of numerous accreditation societies, and the head of International Institute of Cosmetic Dentistry, Dr. Samsavar is well equipped to judge a beautiful smile. He also wants to help everyone have one, which is why he pairs complimentary smile consultations with cosmetic and concept dental services and improves grins with veneers, Invisalign, and Smilercise—a series of exercises he invented that tones face and jaw muscles without requiring tongues to lift barbells. At his dental spa, guests can even feel like pampered beauty queens as they sip on herbal tea, recline in massage chairs, watch movies, and wear a crown. Dr. Samsavar ensures that each patient is well taken care of with these amenities and a policy of admitting only one patient to his office at a time.
