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.
