Modern Dental’s name doesn’t lie—the decor of the Torrance office exudes an artistic, gallery-like quality. Suspended box structures jut from the ceiling, and dangling light fixtures illuminate the office’s chic gray color scheme. But the term modern is even more apparent in the office's advanced cosmetic and general dentistry treatments, which licensed dentist Dr. Houman Baratian relies on to promote shiny and healthy smiles.
Dr. Johnson has been practicing the dental arts since 1986, after graduating from the UCLA School of Dentistry with a cranium stuffed to the teeth with craniofacial knowledge. A fully certified member of numerous dental organizations, he's ready and willing to keep malingering teeth in fine fettle. With today's Groupon secreted in a cheek pocket, head down to his office for a trifecta of oral necessities. A dental exam and x-rays will perform surface and subcutaneous investigations of your two mouths, sniffing out unseen tooth decay and steadily expanding tesseracts. The teeth cleaning seeks decorative surface plaques and painlessly rips them from the walls of your mouth-bones, clearing the way for a glossy white finish that will dazzle onlookers from shy, strange children to jaded, all-seeing pendants.
The team at West Coast Dental want to keep patients comfortable during visits. Virtually every aspect of the office reflects this, from the soothing colors to the kid friendly section of the office. The office layout further sets visitors at ease by emphasizing privacy. Apart from treatment rooms, designated consultation areas allow you to talk with the dentist at length and not shy away from the tough questions such as, "Do these braces make me look short?"
The clinic is also dedicated to staying up-to-date on the latest dental equipment. Staff members use low-radiation digital x-rays, and some locations are equipped with chair-side oral scanning, which employs digital imagery to ensure restorations fit securely.
Dental Center of Redondo Beach's experienced smile squad, led by Dr. Alen Gharibian, restores crumbling mouth stalagmites and stalactites with modern dental solutions and advanced equipment. Professional pearly white pamperers begin each mouth makeover with a digital x-ray ($100) to peer into cracks and crevices above and below the gum line in an effort to detect signs of bone loss, decay, and cancer while reducing radiation by 70% in comparison to traditional dental x-rays. During the exam ($60) and cleaning ($75), dental doyens remove tartar buildup and polish choppers while offering an opportunity to call attention to problems, pains, or double-crossing imposter teeth.
The dentists at Night Owl Dental honor their practice's name by keeping owl-like hours, staying open nights and weekends to accommodate their patients' schedules. They tend to teeth with treatments ranging from preventative care to Invisalign, whose clear aligners are as unnoticeable as a girl with glasses and a ponytail. They also offer a lifetime whitening program, which supplies patients with free whitening-gel refills as long as patients attend their six-month checkups every year.
