Dr. Mehran R. Lari serves as Lead Mentor at Scottsdale Center for Dentistry, working with other dentists who hope to cull knowledge from his expertise and vast internal library of cosmetic-, surgical-, and general-dentistry techniques. Dr. Lari studied dental surgery in Bangalore, India, before migrating to the University of Southern California, where he received his doctorate. Currently, he logs more than 200 credits annually, taking courses about cutting-edge dental techniques such as dental implants and aesthetics. In addition to keeping himself abreast of the latest dental developments, Dr. Lari preaches the importance of patient education. His staff takes care to explain the patient’s options before treatment so that patients can make informed decisions about their dental destinies. To help to pave the information highway, Dr. Lari’s office reveals hidden goings-on with digital x-rays, which have 90% less radiation than traditional x-rays and 80% less radiation than angry toasters.
Though An Elegant Smile Dentistry's 16 dentists are spread across ten locations, they all share a common philosophy of dedicated preventive care. The team, whose members have been lavished with numerous Top Dentist awards from Phoenix Magazine, earns its accolades by determining the specific needs of each patient's mouth. With three modern, state-of-the-art East Valley locations, they also share a mutual philosophy of providing gentle and affordable care they hope will inspire patients to make An Elegant Smile Dentistry their dental home for years to come. Although routine cleanings represent the bread and fluoridated butter of their approach, they also mend smiles with cosmetic and orthodontic services designed to keep aesthetics in line with good oral health.

With hundreds of locations across the country, Right Dental Group represents a collection of oral-healthcare professionals who deliver a variety of quality dental services. The collective places an emphasis on relationship building—meaning patients can confess their most egregious toffee-apple trespasses while receiving a teeth scrubbing delivered with precision and understanding. Each of the dentists is prescreened for a consistent record of excellence and the ability to efficiently locate a cavity in a toothstack. A skilled doctor and staff will skillfully probe forgotten mouth corners, eradicating tartar and expunging plaque from bacterial lairs. The included x-rays will help uncover any oral problem areas that cannot be seen with the shamelessly naked eye. After treatment, clients will be privy to tips that explain the proper brushing and flossing techniques to ward off gum disease and tooth loss, ensuring tongue-stoppers remain firmly rooted to the rest of the skeletal system.
Dentist Dr. Kathrine Hammel and her small army of office associates provide patients with personalized tooth treatments, screenings, and exams. The series of services kicks off with a comprehensive oral exam and cancer screening (a $65 value), in which the dentist will shout "Marco" and wait for cavities and other potential dental problems to respond with "Polo." After the initial exam, patients allow high-energy photons to create panoramic landscapes of their mouthspaces in a series of revealing x-rays (a $100 value). The Opalescence in-office whitening treatment can make speed-demon teeth change shades in as little as one hour, while the take-home kit allows artistic incisors to savor a gradual hue shift over the course of approximately one week (a $300 value each).
