Dr. Naz Tofigh—who has worked in private practice for more than 15 years—fuses style with science in her dental studio, Thirty-2 Advanced Dentistry. The office’s chic decor spans the wing chair–filled waiting room to the sleekly designed treatment areas. Her staff of specialists—an endodontist and an oral and maxillofacial surgeon—resolves complex maladies in-house, rather than outsourcing them to specialized practices or blaming toothaches on surly tongues.
The studio’s services, like its philosophy, combine aesthetics with solid know-how. Cosmetic dentistry treatments range from subtle, smile-straightening Invisalign retainers to whitening treatments. Dr. Tofigh also complements her offerings with other treatments, such as root canals and cleanings that liberate plaque from teeth.
Veneers, dental implants, and teeth-whitening treatments are a few of the ways Dr. John Chaves can promote a junior-level smile. He wields these techniques in a dental practice that comes equipped to handle virtually any dental issue, from cavities and plaque to gum disease and TMJ issues. Empathetic to nervous patients, Dr. Chaves and the team remain chair-side throughout treatments, listening to patients and giving them full authority to stop procedures at any moment.
California Dental Group’s trained staffers specialize in areas ranging from cosmetic dentistry to orthodontia, and attend continuing-education sessions to ensure that their tooth-wrangling skills stay up-to-date. Preventive-care experts show patients how to practice good cleaning habits at home and avoid losing any teeth that could be cashed in with adult tooth fairies for a handful of state-lottery tickets.
The dentists and their crews at 99 My Teeth Dental Group perform general dentistry and specialize in snap-on over-the-teeth dentures. Each location is located inside a mall, meaning they are open when the mall is open, including Saturday and Sunday. 99 My Teeth Dental Group accepts all PPO insurances, and also provides discount dental plans that can include free exams and cleanings for a year.
During his career, Dr. Stuart R. Shlosberg has practiced dentistry and taught dental techniques on both sides of the Atlantic and on both coasts of the United States. After leaving a general-dentistry practice in London?s West End, he traveled to the U.S., where he developed a specialization in prosthodontics and taught restorative dentistry at such schools as Harvard University and the University of Southern California. Today, Dr. Shlosberg combines his skills with those of oral surgeon Dr. Stephen Nahigian to fill in dental gaps with implants and line up ill-fitting jaws with maxillofacial procedures.
Before procedures, the doctors make a point to get to know each patient. During free consultations, the doctors then discuss patients? concerns before outlining a tailored treatment plan. New patients cart home a complimentary customized dental kit ideal for adding to time capsules full of candy.
With a camera no bigger than a pen transmitting color images to a computer screen, dentists capture clear images of old fillings, areas of the gums possibly diseased, and otherwise undetectable cracks and chips. The doctors at L.A. Dental Day Spa use modern technology such as intra-oral cameras and digital x-rays to ensure that those fillings are still functional, the gums are healthy, and that damaged teeth don't develop more serious issues. While keeping apprised of such technology, they also stay up-to-date on modern techniques and cosmetic services. Zoom! whitening units glow in treatment rooms, and veneers leave patrons proud to smile as broadly as the models in a moon-bounce catalog.
