Dr. Roya Niakiani and the dedicated staff of 6th Avenue Periodontics & Implant Dentistry specialize in implant dentistry and employ advanced surgical and cosmetic procedures to optimize smiles and protect mouths from gum disease and other oral illnesses. The team's digital panoramic x-rays and intraoral cameras diagnose mouths with high-definition imaging, and their powerful laser beams safely and swiftly perform thorough cleanings and precision oral surgeries.
The office, nestled deep within the bustling heart of downtown, is chic and cosmopolitan—its décor includes grids of illuminated frosted glass, ergonomic, high-backed chairs, and a space-age foyer lined with cool-hued wall panels. A cache of iPads, TVs, and headsets ensures optimal comfort during all appointments.
By the age of 6, Dr. Dave knew he wanted to be a dentist when he grew up. The idea stuck, and today he stands at the helm of Coastal Dental Arts. True to its name, the practice has elevated dentistry to a near art form, lavishing patients with accoutrements such as flat-screen TVs and wireless headphones, and dentists set to work on teeth with high-tech tools. The practice uses Lava Chairside Oral Scanners to create 3-D mouth impressions, Invisalign orthodontics to straighten teeth sans metal brackets, and the Zoom! Teeth-whitening system to brighten smiles. Coastal Dental Arts prides itself on safety, which is why the practice is committed to following CAL-OSHA standards.
Working alongside Dr. Dave is Dr. Frank Mac, a member of the United States Navy Dental Corps. Although now stationed at Coastal Dental Arts, he still actively serves the Corps, tending to his duties as a staff oral surgeon at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot and traveling to the aid of any submarine that needs its teeth fixed.
Under the guidance of Dr. Tim Collins, Complete Dental Health has emerged as one of San Diego County's most visible providers of the Invisalign transparent tooth-alignment system. Imperfect smiles find solace in a covertly clear solution to moving mouth cubes on a straight and narrow path. The journey begins with a digital mouth image and bite impressions, helping troubled toothsayers actualize the future of their straightened smile. Once surveyed, as many as 20 to 30 Invisalign aligners are custom crafted to match the severity of orthodontic needs. All clear apparatuses are worn for about two weeks before advancing to the next series of equipment.
Tracy McMaster has spent the majority of her 16-year aesthetics career specializing in peels. As such, they claim a large part of the service menu at Mission Valley Skin Care, ranging from lighter glycolic treatments to intensely deep Jessner peels. She also performs traditional facials, customizing them for clients based on issues such as acne or hyperpigmentation. She especially prides herself on body waxing designed to minimize pain, using hard wax on more sensitive areas, such as eyes that just read heartfelt diary entries, and pine resin with strips on larger, less sensitive areas.
San Diego's Teeth Whitening Center streamlines professional whitening treatments into 45-minute sessions valid for anyone with healthy teeth and gums. The center replicates professional dental treatments with hydrogen-peroxide formulas—a common active ingredient in many professional treatments—and accelerates the whitening process with the application of cold-blue-light technology. Dedicated to helping clients achieve long-lasting whiteness, the center also distributes whiteness maintenance kits and enrolls clients in the White Smile Club, which includes discounts on follow-up sessions, enamel boosters, and instructions on how to smile in six different languages.
New Smile Dentistry relies on a balance of experience and modern technology. A prime example: their cosmetic imaging process, which renders an image of what a person's mouth might look like after various treatments. Of course, it's up to the dentist's skills to bring that smile into reality––whether through veneers, bonding, or implants. The entire staff at New Smile also takes care to handle patients gently, and uses state-of-the art sterilization equipment to eliminate germs.
In addition to these sorts of cosmetic makeovers, the team at New Smile treats all ages with general dentistry, for which they rely on equipment such as digital x-rays and their own fine-tuned brains. Crowns, fillings, and implant procedures are also performed with the latest technology for patients of all ages. An oral surgeon is also on hand for any necessary surgical procedures.
