For more than 15 years, Dr. Beatrice Haddad and her knowledgeable team have committed themselves to patient comfort while providing personalized general and cosmetic dental care. Before each Zoom! whitening treatment, an enamel expert conducts a half-hour preparation and examination to ensure gums are healthy and familiar with basic geometry theorems. Patient patients can indulge digits in a complimentary paraffin hand wax while a gentle barrier isolates gums from the potent Zoom! whitening gel. Bicuspids then go from blemished to beaming as a non-invasive Zoom! light activates the illuminating serum, working to dissolve discoloration and leave mouth pearls up to eight shades pearlier over the course of three or four 15-minute intervals. Following the in-office procedure, patients can maintain dental dazzle with a specially molded tray and take-home gel that may be picked up at a later visit, allowing them to touch up once-tarnished tusks in the comfort of their own home or makeshift Batcave.
Dr. Alen Bakhtamian's goal is a simple one: stronger, whiter teeth. Dental procedures, however, can be anything but simple. It's thus with his clients' comfort in mind that he and the staff at Fair Oaks Dental Group recruit updated innovations in cosmetic and general dentistry. Zoom! whitening treatments work to remove stains from teeth discolored by drinking too much coffee or chewing on too many crayons, and laser gum treatments can fight gingivitis. Not one to eschew the classics, however, he also administers fillings, root canals, and implants.
Dr. Niloufar Molayem, the resident dentist at Pasadena Smile Center, knows her patients are more than just a set of teeth. That’s why she practices holistic dentistry to ensure the materials she uses are nontoxic, and provides optional sedation services to ease anxieties. Once clients are comfortable, Dr. Molayem can perform general or cosmetic procedures ranging from regular cleanings to more intensive orthodontics or surgeries. Many of her treatments rely on advanced technology to further increase efficiency, including digital x-rays and intraoral cameras to diagnose concerns and low-level lasers to address gum disease or rampant mouth-dimness. Should more serious issues arise, Dr. Molayem can partner with the clinic’s periodontist, Dr. Eric Cho, to nip them in the bud.
A 1995 graduate of Loma Linda University's School of Dentistry, Dr. Michelle Kim and her staff keep teeth straight and shiny via essential and cosmetic procedures ranging from regular cleanings and whitening treatments to porcelain veneers. As a certified Invisalign dentist, Dr. Kim aligns crooked chompers without the use of metal brackets or the threat of being sent away to boarding school.
