Dr. Sam Veshkini draws on more than 20 years of experience to straighten smiles in a cozy office full of friendly and professional staff. Outside of his hands-on work, Dr. Veshkini has lectured on removable orthodontic appliances, including aligners and braces attached to fake vampire teeth. He and his staff relentlessly support their community by sponsoring contests for kids in honor of National Children's Dental Health Month and Orthodontic Health Month; supporting community schools, churches, and libraries; and by donating oral health kits and orthodontic services to several groups and charitable organizations.
Avalon Dentistry’s quartet of doctors subscribes to a philosophy of comfortable dental care supported by lasting doctor-patient relationships. Chair-side TVs and MP3 players ease patients' anxiety, and modern technology, such as intraoral cameras and digital x-rays, thoroughly preps staff. The office provides the full spectrum of dentistry, from general and preventive treatments to cosmetic and surgical procedures.
At OC Dental Center and OC Smile, which has three locations in the Orange County area, the team of dentists restores the smiles of patients young and old in an ultramodern facility with massage chairs and flat-screen televisions. Lush, Tuscan-style environs accented with rich murals provide a refreshing contrast to the sterile decor and loose teeth scattered throughout most dentist offices. Low-radiation digital x-rays represent OC's commitment to safe, up-to-the-minute technology, which also includes the latest teeth-whitening treatments and Waterlase, a laser-based treatment that can eliminate the need for drilling. Additionally, most of the offices have bilingual staffs who are able to guide patients through visits in both English and Spanish.
To say that Dr. Ruben Begino, DDS cares about oral health would be an understatement. The head of Alicia Plaza Dentistry has formed a life around helping others, volunteering his dental services in Belize, Guatemala, and Mexico. Stateside, he treats his clients to a wealth of services that address a range of mouth-related issues, such as misaligned teeth, tooth discoloration, and migraines spawned from unknowingly clenching the jaws or sticking the head in a vise during sleep. In addition to standard preventative exams and treatments, the world-wise dentist also installs veneers, dental implants, and Invisalign braces.
From routine checkups to surgical implants, Dr. Terry Abulazan ensures each patient leaves his office with a healthy smile. He uses digital x-rays—which emit much less radiation than standard x-rays—to unearth hidden cavities and long-lost toffee. Dr. Abulazan also covers chipped teeth with custom veneers and brightens already healthy smiles with in-office teeth-whitening treatments.
For Dr. Lida Kashani—a UC Irvine and Boston University dental-school grad—and her team of dental experts, taking care of teeth isn't a chore, it's an art. That's why they embrace the latter part of their name, Laguna Hills Dental Arts. Dr. Kashani casts aside old-fashioned tools such as drills and penny-farthings in favor of the latest in dental technology. On top of general preventative care, Laguna Hills Dental Arts specializes in cosmetic dentistry.
