Dr. Javed Bhojani of Distinctive Dental Care considers himself a student of his craft. He's not content to rest on his laurels, riding on his 25 years of experience and education from Case Western Reserve School of Dentistry. He's working on attaining Master level from the Academy of General Dentistry, which requires advanced training in 16 categories of dentistry. Undertaking 1,100 hours of postgraduate education, Dr. Bhojani has gleaned such advanced techniques as dental implants, one-hour root canals, and laser teeth-whitening treatments.
But Dr. Bhojani knows that even the most educated doctor is only as effective as his tools. That's why he outfits his office with some of the most modern dental equipment. Digital bite-wing and panoramic x-rays reveal issues such as cavities while emitting about 80% less radiation than conventional machines. His CEREC computer crafts ceramic crowns to restore damaged teeth in about one hour, which is much less time-consuming than a traditional tooth-coronation ceremony.
