When not painting colorful landscapes at home, dentist Dr. Anagha Joshi is in her office at Dental Fine Arts, shining up smiles and educating patients about oral health. The latest technology—including intraoral cameras and low-radiation digital x-rays—aid Dr. Joshi and her staff during services that include crowns, teeth whitening, root canals, and orthodontics. A television in each room helps clients pass the time without teaching themselves to whistle with their mouths open.
Dr. Hema Patel, a member of the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry, headlines Smile Plus Dentistry’s grin-cleansing gang who stem the tide of tooth decay, plaque, and tartar buildup through comprehensive dental care. The comprehensive checkup begins with a visual exam that scans chatterboxes for noticeable wear, troublesome tooth craters, and Charleston Chew accumulation (a $70 value). A set of x-rays allows Dr. Patel to gaze deeper inside teeth to unveil the appearance of cavities or the progress of decay (a $90 value), and a cleaning (a $116 value) polishes away any dental detritus so that each gumstone shines like the top of Mr. Clean’s head. The enamel enlightenment can be continued at home with a whitening kit, which brightens teeth with trays and bleaching gel that can be worn while sleeping or during the day (a $150 value).
Some people cross an ocean to be with a loved one or explore new lands—Dr. Gayatri Sakhrani did it in the name of dentistry. For the past 10 years, she’s continued that level of dedication, making the most of her opportunity. She earned a dental degree from Boston University and took over a practice in Fremont in 2006. Since then, she’s devoted herself to each of her patients, keeping her phone turned on seven days a week to field emergencies and questions about her full range of family and cosmetic dental services.
Dr. Nazanin Morshedi helms Palo Alto Dental Center with passion—she brings a love of her craft, which she considers an art, to each appointment, and strives to put a smile on her patients’ faces. Dr. Morshedi partners with a staff of dental professionals, each with at least 10 years of experience in the field. Though she specializes in neuromuscular dentistry, the doc offers a range of services, from general dentistry—such as root canals and bridges—to cosmetic fixes, including teeth whitening and invisalign. She uses the latest techniques culled from educational seminars, and provides pain-free dentistry with her gentle touch and make-believe tools—which she still thoroughly cleans after each appointment.
Dr. Scott Nguyen’s desire to give his patients the best possible care leads him to attain more than four times the required number of continuing-education hours each year.

At Sunnysmile Dental, Dr. Nguyen flexes his skills alongside his team, where they makes treatments such as root canals and laser teeth whitening as comfortable as possible.
