Inside the private dental office of Simi Family Dental Group, Dr. Syed Hasan employs his education in microbiology and molecular genetics to examine and repair his patient’s teeth. His research in oral cancer has taught him to look out for early warning signs, signaling problems that can accelerate into costly and dangerous ailments. But before searching for cavities and gum disease, he listens to his patients’ desires and concerns.
In addition to practicing the full range of general dentistry, Dr. Hasan can also extract impacted wisdom teeth, a procedure requiring special qualification and a fancy hat. He also has the orthodontic expertise necessary to place wandering teeth back in line. His laser dental cleaning uses heat and light energy to kill bacteria and loosen plaque around the gum lines.
FDA market-cleared Zerona low-level lasers painlessly emulsify excess fat from the neck, arms, back, stomach, hips, thighs, and knees. Freed of its typically rigid structure, melted fat floats out of cell membranes to be expunged from the body by the lymphatic system, the body’s cell-level secret service. After the quick initial consultation, clients relax as the forty-minute laser sessions zap away, resulting in tangible reductions in cellulite and waistline inches. Each medically supervised session allows patients to relax, listen to music, or therapeutically murmur ocean noises to themselves. Session scheduling varies by location; call for a reservation and more information.
