Doctors Goly Barar and Nicole Rashidi perform cosmetic and general dentistry at Elite Dental Group, a practice with more than four decades of experience in the field. The doctors scout for signs of oral cancer and gum disease during basic exams, and supplement preventative care with cosmetic enhancements. In-office Zoom! whitening effaces surface stains and graffiti tags, yielding results that last up to a year.
Dr. Nazila Doroodian and her team of dental hygienists pamper grins with modern technology and spa-like amenities designed to keep clients comfortable and relaxed. Guests slip their hands into paraffin gloves as their backs undulate to the beat of a massage mat's rolling strokes. During the exam and cleaning, hygienists maneuver intraoral cameras to discover decay and lost lottery tickets before gently sweeping away debris and snapping a few low-radiation digital x-rays.
Dr. Schwartz, a graduate of UC Santa Barbara and the University of Southern California, attends to both the cosmetic and restorative oral-health needs of his patients. He has experience with adults and children as young as 1 year old, and offers several options for sedation dentistry. His helpful and friendly staffers, some of whom speak Polish, Dutch, Spanish, and pig Latin, help patients relax and pass the time during treatments with televisions or headphones for private music listening.
The staff at Beatrice Salon uses the latest in beauty technology, brightening teeth with a laser whitening system, smoothing faces with microdermabrasion, and applying convenient permanent makeup to façades. During facials, aestheticians soothe skin with relaxing aromatherapy, back facial treatments, and microdermabrasions that target fine lines, wrinkles, and creases left after folding oneself into an overhead luggage compartment. Nail technicians pamper hands with manicures and feet with pedicures as clients kick back in cushy chairs. Permanent-makeup services include eyeliner, lip liner, and full brow coloring, and eyelash extensions lengthen lashes semipermanently. Technicians can also complete a new look by wielding the laser-powered BleachBright teeth-whitening system to brighten chompers four to eight shades in 15–20 minutes.
At Crystal Springs Dental Care, Dr. Cameron Dezham treats patient comfort as paramount. Whether he's performing routine cleanings or rehabbing shabby smiles with porcelain veneers, Dr. Dezham keeps patients abreast of his dental decisions, easing minds that fear the worst at the sound of cleaning instruments or musings on the infinite nature of dental floss. To further soothe his visitors, the dentist also offers conscious-sedation dentistry, which allows anxiety to snooze through procedures while the patient remains awake, high-spirited, and able to interact with the dentist.
The team at the office of Joseph C. Sheehy, DDS, strive to make their patients comfortable. During services such as basic cleanings or one-day crown procedures, guests watch their favorite TV programs or practice emulating game-show hosts' smiles. In addition to general dentistry and endodontics, Dr. Sheehy straightens teeth with Invisalign orthodontic treatments and whitens smiles with chairside Zoom sessions.
