At Mission Dental, dentists Vincent Spero and Farrah Koutchek work to improve the health and appearance of teeth and gums. They peek inside teeth using low-radiation digital x-rays before performing services that range from routine cleanings to root canals. Patients also can opt for cosmetic procedures such as teeth whitening or Invisalign braces, and can request sedation dentistry to ensure a comfortable experience.
It's difficult to say what excites Johnston C. Chu, DDS more: interacting with his patients or maintaining and restoring their teeth. He decided to go into dentistry because it allows him to help others, and he's always had a profound interest in teeth and oral health.
Dr. Chu's sincere concern for his patients' comfort and well-being is evident in both types of services he offers and in his office's warm, welcoming ambiance. He has taken numerous continuing-education courses to stay ahead of the latest patient-centered techniques—including sedation dentistry, drill-less procedures, and aesthetic laser surgery—and specializes in safely removing old mercury fillings.
The reception area looks more like a family room than a dentist's office, although his one-patient-at-a-time philosophy means that guests rarely wait there for very long. Beige gingham armchairs and floral-themed artwork invite adults to relax with a cup of coffee or tea, and kids can play with educational games, puzzles, or daydream about blinding the school bully with a flash of their newly polished pearly whites.
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.

A wildly successful alternative to traditional day spas?its more than 300 locations blanket 36 states and half a dozen countries?Planet Beach Contempo Spa is a neighborhood wellness center where state-of-the-art equipment administers spa services. The technology replaces familiar treatments, as in the Luminous facial, a light-based service that delivers blemish-busting results similar to those of a conventional facial. But other equipment maps out new spa territory entirely: the Hydro-Derma Fusion chamber moisturizes the whole body with nutrient-rich steam in order to offset the effects of a dry climate. Other machines whiten teeth, spray tan skin, assist in weight loss, and massage muscles.
Planet Beach operates on a gym-style membership system, meaning that members purchase packages or pay flat monthly rates. Members receive personal consulting from spa personnel to assist in identifying customer goals and help achieve results.
Dr. Alen Bakhtamian's goal is a simple one: stronger, whiter teeth. Dental procedures, however, can be anything but simple. It's thus with his clients' comfort in mind that he and the staff at Fair Oaks Dental Group recruit updated innovations in cosmetic and general dentistry. Zoom! whitening treatments work to remove stains from teeth discolored by drinking too much coffee or chewing on too many crayons, and laser gum treatments can fight gingivitis. Not one to eschew the classics, however, he also administers fillings, root canals, and implants.
