Giri Palani, DDS, has trained with some of the top dentists and oral surgeons in Los Angeles. After graduating from Marquette University School of Dentistry, Dr. Palani underwent a rigorous hospital-dentistry program at the prestigious Cedars-Sinai Hospital. As chief resident at UCLA, Dr. Palani continued his learning about aesthetic dentistry and the placement and restoration of implants. He stays on the cutting edge of developments in implant dentistry as part of his fellowship status with the International Congress of Oral Implantologists, which requires numerous hours of annual education and the ability to say “bicuspid” quickly 10 times.
Complementing his extensive training in the technology and philosophy of Western medicine, Dr. Palani's Indian heritage has inspired his passion for holistic dentistry. He remains mindful of the ways in which oral health is intricately connected to the overall wellness of the rest of the body.
Since 2003, the dentists at Doctor Smile have worked to keep patients' teeth in mint condition. Dr. Kayvon Javid, one of the brothers who founded the practice, draws on a broad repertoire of dentistry skills to meet that goal. Licensed in both pediatric dentistry and adult sedation, he performs treatments ranging from preventive cleanings to complex dental surgery. He also specializes in cosmetic procedures, such as Lumineers and Invisalign.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
The dentists at Night Owl Dental honor their practice's name by keeping owl-like hours, staying open nights and weekends to accommodate their patients' schedules. They tend to teeth with treatments ranging from preventative care to Invisalign, whose clear aligners are as unnoticeable as a girl with glasses and a ponytail. They also offer a lifetime whitening program, which supplies patients with free whitening-gel refills as long as patients attend their six-month checkups every year.
Modern Dental’s name doesn’t lie—the decor of the Torrance office exudes an artistic, gallery-like quality. Suspended box structures jut from the ceiling, and dangling light fixtures illuminate the office’s chic gray color scheme. But the term modern is even more apparent in the office's advanced cosmetic and general dentistry treatments, which licensed dentist Dr. Houman Baratian relies on to promote shiny and healthy smiles.
